State candidates spar in Cape Elizabeth debate By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — Candidates for three seats in the state Legislature debated everything from charter schools to alternative energy Wednesday night at a forum hosted by high school students. Cape Elizabeth High School

students in the Advanced Placement government class moderated the discussion at Town Hall with candidates for House Districts 121 and 123 and Senate District 7. In House District 121, which represents a portion of Cape Elizabeth, Republican Nancy

Thompson and incumbent Democrat Kim Monaghan-Derrig are up for a rematch just a year after fewer than 200 votes decided a special election in favor of Monaghan-Derrig. The two candidates disagreed on virtually every issue, butting heads on charter schools, same-

day voter registration and samesex marriage. On charter schools, Thompson said she was “all for it,” citing competition as an important component in increasing the quality of education in schools. “I’m thrilled that charter schools have been approved in

By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — The transformation of a block of Ocean Street in Knightville was completed Monday night as the City Council approved northbound one-way traffic for a block from E to D streets. Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis cast the sole vote against changing the traffic flow and also voted against the zoning revision that changes angled parking on the block from 60 to 45 degrees. The council, with Councilor Tom Coward absent, was unanimous in passing the first reading of a zoning amendment allowing oversight of “nuisance properties,” and to shift $60,000 of surplus funding to rebuild the bridge leading to the Wescott Road public library branch. The second vote amending Chapter 16 of city ordinances is expected on Oct. 15, and will allow councilors to declare properties a public nuisance after a hearing takes place. Hearings could be generated by a complaint from a municipal department head or a petition signed by 10 property taxpaying residents living within 500 feet of a property. The ordinance revision contains 12 clauses determining what constitutes a nuisance, based on health, safety and environmental questions. Additions to the ordinance since it was introduced at a Sept. 24 council workshop include an exclusion of composting material and a lengthy clause regarding outdoor storage of personal property that is “worn out ... discarded or abandoned.” If passed, the ordinance allows the council to designate a property a public nuisance and order a cleanup within 15 days. Fines for violating the order are found in state law and range from $100 to $2,500 per day with a cap of $5,000. Fines can only be assessed by a court order, and city Corporation Council Sally Daggett said the real intent is to work with property owners instead of fining them. In about 20 minutes of public comment, the ordinance drew almost unanimous support, although Gary Maietta Parkway residents April and Lenny Tracy and Main Street Sheryl Frisco urged strict enforcement.

October 5, 2012

Incumbent and former DA vie for District 127 seat By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — In the race for Maine House District 127, both candidates are seeking a course in the middle of the road. Incumbent Republican Amy Volk is seeking her second two-year term representing the district, which extends east from the Eastern Trail through Pine Point and Prout’s Neck. In 2010, she defeated incumbent Democrat Sean Flaherty for the seat. Volk and her husband, Derek, live on Elbridge Oliver Way and have four children. Opposing Volk is Democrat Paul Aron-

son, who served as Cumberland County District Attorney from 1982 to 1990. Aronson is making his first run for a legislative seat. The father of two grown children, Aronson, 62, is a resident of Minuteman Drive. He practices divorce and family law in Sanford. Volk said her roots in town allow her to stand out in the race. “I feel like I’m immersed in the community,” she said. She has served as board secretary with the Portland-based Root Cellar and is a founding member of Scarborough Young Life Advisory Committee. Volk was also the board secretary for the Children’s Theatre of Maine.

Volk said her first term established her willingness to work with all legislators and she became a member of the Moderate caucus. Aronson believes he stands out because of his differing view of government. A supporter of free markets, he said government should serve as a correcting mechanism. “Free markets provide the greatest wealth for the greatest number of people,” he said. “Given that distortions occur, only government action can counter imbalances that happen in the system.” The candidates are on opposite sides of Question 1, which would allow same-sex marriages. Aronson has been endorsed by Equality Maine, and Volk said she is opposed to the question but not making it a focus of her campaign. “I am happy to have the decision made by citizen referendum,” Volk said. “And I do believe people in committed relationships should have the same rights as married people.” Aronson said he will also work to work to limit government regulation of “medical

reproductive choices.” Volk said the state has made progress in improving its business climate in the last two years. “We have a ‘how can I help you atAronson titude,’” she said, that has replaced a more adversarial tone. Volk praised reforming health insurance and worker’s compensation laws, and supports concepts including allowing applicants to file one perVolk mit application to be delivered digitally to the proper agencies. She said continued streamlining is needed, especially in bureaucracy, and noted the LD-1 regulatory reforms passed in 2011 drew significant bipartisan support . “It is proof our leadership is willing to continued next page

October 5, 2012 from previous page work with everybody,” she said. In seeing the current economic climate as one of a lack of demand instead of an abundance of debt, Aronson said he would like to increase state bonding to put more money into the economy. “We are not going to increase our economy without increasing our tax base,” he said. Aronson suggested tax reform could start by eliminating the sales tax because it is regressive and outdated. Revenue could be replaced by increasing lodging or meals taxes, but he is convinced no sales tax means more jobs. Aronson attributed current cuts in social spending programs to the tax cuts enacted

Frosty’s Donuts expands to South Portland SOUTH PORTLAND — Frosty’s Donuts, a Brunswick fixture that recently expanded to Freeport, will open a third location at 740 Broadway at 9 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 6. The new shop will be on the site of the former Cambridge Coffee. Frosty’s employee Marcia Giancola said the shop will be operated by Cape Elizabeth residents Haj and Keyla Carr. The original Frosty’s opened in 1965, and was closed after the death of co-founder June Frost last year. The Brunswick shop reopened under the ownership of Shelby St. Andre and Nels Omdal in February; they opened a Freeport shop this summer. before it was decided how spending should be curbed. He added the state reductions in social spending do not solve problems, especially as the population ages. “The costs are just shifted to somebody else. You can’t take a hatchet to it. My view is they want to dismantle the safety net,” he said. Volk said it is important to remember the federal waivers sought to reduce MaineCare spending mean the state matches, instead of exceeds, federal standards under the Affordable Care Act. She said time is needed to judge the impact of cuts, but a continued priority is to eliminate waiting lists for people needing group home care and to redirect spending those who need it most. Volk said government can play a role in developing or expanding sources of energy, but suggested practical spending like helping businesses access more economical natural gas lines in town. To expand energy sources, she said she supports more natural gas use and a return to hydroelectric power from existing dams that are not generating a full capacity. “It’s much more reliable and easier to access,” she said. Volk emphasized that conservation is a key, and can be done without government subsidies. From using more efficient light bulbs to forming energy-buying pools for businesses, private efforts at conservation can be accomplished without government


assistance, she said. Aronson’s preference is to let the market decide how energy sources emerge and develop. “I’m not a big winner of letting the government pick winners and losers in the business world,” he said. He said he is wary of subsidies, adding current federal tax breaks and benefits have provided “what I consider a marginal return.” The state can lead by retrofitting buildings for better conservation and buying fuel efficient vehicles, Aronson said, but should limit its involvement otherwise. “I’m an optimist in terms of adaptability, but let the market lead,” he said. Volk and Aronson emphasized they will not be bound by party lines as they consider legislative issues. “I am not an ideologue,” Volk said. “I view myself as a middle-of-the-road, common-sense Mainer,” Aronson said.

Newcomer challenges incumbent in House District 128 By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — Timing and experience are at the heart of candidacies of the two women running in Maine House District 128. Incumbent Republican Rep. Heather Sirocki is challenged by Democrat Jean-Marie Caterina. The district covers western Scarborough from the Eastern Trail to the town boundary. Sirocki defeated former Scarborough School Board member and Chairman Brian Dell’Olio in 2010 to replace former Democratic Rep. Peggy Pendleton. Caterina is in her first campaign for elected office.

“I am known as a hard worker who listens,” said Sirocki, who maintained a 100 percent attendance record for votes, role calls and committee hearings in her first, two-year term. Sirocki, a dental hygienist, and her husband, Stephen Sirocki, are Glendale Circle residents who have three sons. Caterina is a real estate agent who is married to Scarborough Fire Capt. Geoff MacLean. The couple has a daughter and live on Gorham Road. She said she is running to improve the political tenor in Augusta. “I felt this was the year to jump in,” Caterina said. “This is too small a state to be crabby and mean.”

Caterina said her “real-life experience” sets her apart as a candidate. “I have had to make payroll and budgets,” she said. Sirocki said her diligence sets her apart. “Before I cast votes, I listen, I research the issue, and I remember who I am serving,” she said. Caterina said she will vote yes on referendum Question 1, which would legalize same-sex marriages. “To me, it is a basic equal rights equation. I think people who love each other should be able to marry and the government should stay out of it,” she said. Sirocki declined to say how she would vote. “This issue will be presented directly to voters, not the Legislature. This is not applicable to the office I am seeking. It is a personal, not political question,” she said. Both candidates said they see room for improvement in Maine’s business climate, both in streamlining regulation and the number of agencies enforcing rules. Sirocki said she will continue her clear and constant communication with business owners and leaders. She cited a recent forum she and Rep. Amy Volk, R-Scarborough, hosted at the Scarborough Public Library with Jay Martin, the state’s small business advocate. “I recognize private-sector job growth is the engine that drives the economy,” Sirocki

said. “It is critical to meet face to face with business owners to understand what they need and what their roadblocks are.” Sirocki said progress was made in the Caterina last legislative session by reforming health insurance and business regulations, and tax laws. Caterina said she has seen “business regulation that is ridiculous,” but said reforms should not come Sirocki at the cost of protecting the environment or fair treatment of the workforce. “I’m not against reducing red tape, but I don’t believe it should be the Wild West out there,” she said. Caterina said she would like to see increased efforts to lure high-tech businesses to the state and renewed bond spending on research and development efforts. Caterina cited Sirocki’s 2011 vote on regulation of bisphenol-A, a chemical additive to plastics commonly known as BPA, as evidence of how the candidates differ on regulations. Studies have linked BPA exposure to health problems including diabetes, heart disease and reproductive problems. The ad-

October 5, 2012 from previous page ditive was included in an overall “Kids-Safe Product Act” passed in 2008. Sirocki said it is untrue that she voted against banning the substance in Maine. However, she was one of three House members to vote “nay” on LD-412, a legislative resolve allowing the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to enforce its regulation of BPA. Sirocki said her work on the Legislature’s Health and Human Services Committee shows demands on social spending outpace available funding, and the state should better prioritize who gets assistance and how. “The welfare budget has been large and difficult to sustain,” she said. Sirocki said ensuring timely delivery of benefits for Mainers with cognitive, developmental and physical disabilities; people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries, and those with mental illnesses is a top priority for her. Adding more beds for patients with traumatic brain injuries, more in-home support services and seeking alternatives to drugs

prescribed for children with mental health problems are ways Sirocki said she would like to address health needs for the state’s most vulnerable residents. Sirocki said she grew up poor and still sees and understands the effects of poverty. She said she supports “temporary and targeted assistance,” and would like to limit the federal food stamp program and tie it to the Women, Infants and Children program to ensure aid money is spent on “specific nutritional foods.” Caterina said her work as a social worker and advocate convinces her “there is always room for improvement on delivery” of social welfare programs. But she objects to the current political climate around welfare spending. “This attack on people who are less fortunate is uncalled for,” Caterina said. Properly funded education with equal opportunities for all students is the best way to address chronic poverty, she said. “The best welfare is a job. But so many factors go into unemployment and chronic underemployment. How do we support people to help them make their lives the

best they can be?” she asked. Sirocki and Caterina agree on the need to develop existing and alternative energy sources, but differ on the need for government subsidies in the effort. “The role of government should be limited in regard to direct subsidies,” Sirocki said. Caterina said she wants the private sector to take the lead, but subsidies for emerging technologies are a historical tradition. “Government plays a role in research and development. If you look behind it, the pri-

vate sector may have had a grant,” she said. Both said their hard work will represent the district well. “I negotiate all the time, it is my job,” Caterina said. “I explain to my clients, you are not going to get everything you want.” Sirocki said her perfect attendance will continue. “Some legislators leave the room ... known as taking a walk,” she said. “I will never take a walk.” David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or dharry@ Follow him on Twitter: @DavidHarry8.

5-way race for 3 seats on Cape Elizabeth School Board By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — Five candidates are competing for three School Board seats in the Nov. 6 election. Three incumbents hope to retain their seats for another three years, while two new candidates attempt to oust them. Incumbents John Christie, David Hillman and Kate Williams-Hewitt – all elected in 2009 – hope their experience resonates with voters; Bill Gross and Michael Goulding hope to bring new perspectives to the board.

John Christie Christie has lived in Cape Elizabeth for five years and has two children who attend

schools in the district. Professionally, he works as the chief financial officer at Sinu, a New York-based technology company he helped create in 2004. He initially sought election to the School Board to preserve a strong public education system in the community, he said. “I got involved in School Board activities shortly after the (stock) market collapsed, when there was significant pressure on the school budget from certain people in the community looking to lower

standards in order to lower costs,” Christie said. “I was interested in getting involved to help advocate for excellence in public education.” His background in Christie finance helped him make sense of budget issues in his first term on the board and plan for the future during uncertain economic times, he said. Christie said one of the most significant accomplishments he has contributed to on the board was the hiring of the new superintendent, Meredith Nadaeu. “We didn’t find a candidate in the first round that was right for the job,” he said. “I think we made a bold move reopening the search up to the market and it has paid off in spades, with a very bright and energetic superintendent.” Christie said he is looking forward to

working with the administration in implementing its new vision and mission statement.

Michael Goulding

School teacher-turned-chiropractor Goulding has lived in Cape Elizabeth for 4 1/2 years and has two daughters in the school system. Goulding taught special education for four years before going to chiropractic school. He now works as a chiropractor in Portland and volunteers as a teacher at St. Bartholomew Parish. Goulding said he Goulding has no particular agenda for joining the board, but he thinks his past experience as a teacher would be beneficial. “Things haven’t changed a lot in the 30 years since I’ve been out of school,” he

October 5, 2012 from previous page said, noting struggles over funding continue today. “I think I have pretty good understanding between the dynamics of teachers, the administration and taxpayers and students.” With his experience, Goulding said he hopes to bring a pragmatic approach to the School Department’s budget. “I’d want to have a fair balance between educators and kids and taxpayers, with an understanding that kids are the future of America, and as such, their education is the name of the game,” he said. “At this stage in my life, it would be a real blessing to be able to sit on the School Board.”

Bill Gross Gross, who is in his first campaign for elected office, has been a resident of Cape Elizabeth for more than 30 years and has had two children go through the town’s school system. Now retired, he previously worked as an engineer in the telecommunications industry. Gross Gross also volunteers at Cape Elizabeth High School in honors physics classes, providing extra help to students. He said his experience as a volunteer has helped him see opportunities to create better coordination between the science and math curriculum. “We could better integrate them and introduce them earlier,” Gross said. “I saw running for the School Board as a way to influence this.” In addition, he said he wants to promote teaching methods and curriculum used by the Kahn Academy, a free library of online videos teaching a wide range of subjects, which allows students to work at their own pace with teacher support. “I think this is going to be a huge revolution in the education system,” Gross said. “Teachers can assign videos to students and what used to be classwork, would be homework. Teachers would be able to spend more time teaching, not lecturing.”

“Revenue is going to continue to be a problem. We’re going to have to find ways to make up for that,” he said. “I have a lot expertise going into an area, assessing people and looking at how Hillman programs work.” Hillman said his law background played a significant role in the board’s budget discussions and in the negotiation of a new teachers’ contract. Specifically on the contract, he said he worked to bring health-care costs down by working with the Legislature to force teachers to disclose the their health-care data, allowing the board to compare insurance policies, Hillman said. “We have good teachers and have been able to negotiate very fair contracts,” he said. “Contracts that pay what the market is paying, but also pay enough to compete with best schools and keep the best teachers.” Hillman said his experience gives him special insight into the world of education,


noting that he spends 30-40 hours a week reading materials and attending meetings. “I’ve used these three years to learn how the school system really works,” he said. “Being a School Board member gives me a leg up. It’s experience you can only get by doing it and it’s amazingly valuable.”

Kate Williams-Hewitt Williams-Hewitt is a teacher who is specialized in learning disabilities; she currently works in early childhood education at the Children’s Nursery School in Portland. She is also on the board of Reading Matters to Maine, which advocates for students with learning disabilities. She has lived in Cape Elizabeth since 1993 and has four children — two in Williams-Hewitt their first year of college and two still in the school system. Williams-Hewitt said she has enjoyed working on the board for the past three years and finds the work “fascinating.” “I love working on the School Board. It’s

interesting working with federal and state mandates and how they dictate what we can do in the public school system,” she said. “My job is to keep asking questions about the curriculum and find out why we’re spending money on programs.” Her perspective as a teacher is important, she said, and allows her to ask insightful questions. “Because I’m current in the world of education, I can stand out and can ask those questions of the superintendent about education,” Williams-Hewitt said. “I’m always coming from the (perspective of), are we providing the kids the ability to do their best in the classroom?” With regard to the school budget, Williams-Hewitt said she tries to keep in mind the whole community and not only families with kids attending the schools. “The school budget has to reflect what residents can honestly afford,” she said. “I’m not looking to put money in the budget unnecessarily; it has to reflect what the community wants.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ Follow him on Twitter: @W_C_Graff.

PATHS helps us take care of our own

Advocating for your school-age child, especially one with special needs, is a two-edged sword. I have found teachers and administrators to be uniformly dedicated and hardworking. Even though they’re from the government, they are here to help you, unlike that unicorn, the Lazy Bureaucrat, visible only to reactionary radio hosts and others who think they don’t need government. The View Unfortunately, as schools are asked to do more with less, the process can be adversarial. That was more of a problem in California, partly because California has bigger budget problems, but also because there’s no there, there, culturally. It doesn’t have the “we take care of our own” sense of community we have experienced here. I got a big dose of that spirit recently at one of the gems of Maine’s school system: Portland Art Mike Langworthy & Technical High School. Carol and I took Elizabeth to their open house. She spends half of every day at PATHS in the fast foods program, learning practical, real-world skills. It is an outstanding and popular curriculum, and I was glad to support it, although not so much at an open house. School functions are usually noisy and crowded; I start hyperventilating if somebody gets within 6 feet of me. It’s not a good match. Also, Elizabeth currently has an “I love you, please go away” thing happening with me. Our conversations about events usually go something like: “Can I come?” “No.” “Oh.”

From Away

“I’m sorry, dad.” “It’s OK.” “I’m not being mean to you or anything. I just don’t want you to go.” “I know.” “I do love you, but sometimes I just want to be with Mom.” “It’s OK.” We avoided that dance this time; Carol announced the whole family (i.e., me) was going, and her word is law. We took separate cars, which is a win-win; Elizabeth was not relegated to the back seat, and I was not forced to endure their current favorite CD, “Every Conceivable 80s Pop Anthem Homogenized By The Contestants On A Television Singing Competition.” Volume XXII. When we got to PATHS, Carol pointed out the principal, Mike Johnson, moving among gaggles of kids and parents effortlessly. He was working the crowd like an alderman, as my grandfather used to say. That may sound like an insult in today’s political climate, but I say it with great admiration. I knew Johnson was an excellent principal from when he was at Portland High School. I was not aware of his skill at making people feel welcome and important while seeming to be everywhere at once. That is a rare ability. Elizabeth’s teacher, Mr. Divinsky, could make a pretty good living standing in for Billy Joel, but it would be education’s loss. As I understand it, he runs an industrial kitchen and food program for several hundred, while simultaneously training students with a daunting range of challenges to work in a restaurant environment. Despite being pulled in a dozen different directions, and even though we arrived too late to see his formal presentation, he found the time to walk us through Elizabeth’s curriculum individually. I’m not saying I have a man crush on him, but I can’t imagine anybody I’d rather see teaching Elizabeth to multitask.

Earnest musicians serenaded us with classic rock while we waited in line for our hamburgers and hot dogs (cookies courtesy of Elizabeth’s class). I like to think the Hendrix and Clapton were by choice and not because their music teacher said, “Look, there’s going to be a lot of old people there, so make sure you don’t play anything you like.” The students who shared the line with us were bouncy, moving in and out of groups with a fluidity I don’t remember from my own adolescence. It all had a very light and friendly feel, a kind of organized chaos fueled by enough adolescent high spirits to light a major city for a week. PATHS has a high proportion of students with special needs. I’ve learned to be hypersensitive to how they are treated in an integrated environment. From what I could tell, they weren’t merely coexisting or tolerating each other. In many cases, I was hard pressed to tell which kids had special needs or what they were. That fluidity I mentioned seemed to cross all sorts of lines. Granted, this was an event, not a school day, but it’s impossible to imagine that the sense of genuine good will I felt was something “put on” for the occasion. Maybe there is nothing remarkable about this. Maybe I missed a seismic shift in social dynamics since I went to school. Or maybe I saw the whole event through the rose-colored glasses of a parent who desperately wants his child to be happy and feel welcome everywhere. Or maybe it really is an example of how Mainers take care of their own. Whatever it is, I’m glad she’s at PATHS.

Society benefits when gays can marry I am the child of a traditional one man-one woman marriage, one of three sons in a reasonably conventional family. I have been married for 18 years. Together, my wife and I have two children. Short It isn’t all peace and love. It takes effort. Sometimes, it’s downright difficult. Even so, I believe that marriage and family are the basic building blocks of society, and that they are the best mechanisms for producing happy, healthy, well-adjusted citizens. That said, to the extent it is up to me, I am willing to share marriage with gay people. It is difficult for me to Halsey Frank rebut the argument that gay marriage is against God’s will. I am no religious expert. I only note that some religious denominations, foremost amongst them the Episcopal Church in the United States, accept gay people, gay marriage and even gay clergy. Some argue that homosexuality is unnatural and shouldn’t be legitimized through the acceptance of gay marriage. But homosexuals are the offspring of heterosexuals, naturally. And, studies find homosexuality present in most societies to varying degrees, find significant concordance of homosexuality in identical twins, and find homosexual behavior in many animals. My own sense is that sexuality is a function of both nature and nurture. Others argue that the primary purpose of marriage is procreation, and homosexual couples are incapable of con-


ceiving. But we don’t require heterosexual couples to have children in order to marry. Some do not, either because they are unable to or don’t want do. Other married couples adopt children. We don’t invalidate their marriages. Some people say that gay couples make poor parents. But straight couples can be lousy parents and gay couples can be terrific ones. Their sexual orientation seems to have little to do with it. Providing a stable, orderly, loving, and nurturing home does. Still others say that homosexuals are bad role models for boys and girls. But, we have moved past stereotypes of the strong, silent man and weak, emotional woman. We have many models of masculinity and femininity: working moms and stay-at-home dads, competitive women athletes and computer-geek entrepreneurs, women in the military on the battlefield and guys in the kitchen on TV. Our world is richer for that diversity. Some define marriage as the union of one man and one woman and argue that the union of two men or two women does not fit that definition. Whatever its formal definition, the practice of marriage has varied over time. As I understand the Bible, Abraham, Isaac and Moses all had more than one wife. Within recent memory, the concept of marriage has evolved from a relationship in which a wife was considered a piece of property that a husband owned, to one in which a husband was lord and master and a wife was his humble servant, to a partnership of equals. Beyond that, my sense is that every marriage is a unique constellation of arrangements that defies simple definition. Others warn that gay marriage is another step down a slippery slope to perdition, after our high divorce rate, single motherhood, one-parent households and latchkey children. It will further debase the values that made our country great. But it seems to me that gay marriage doesn’t

contribute to these particular problems. It helps solve them. Some complain that allowing gay people to marry will decrease tax revenues as more people file returns jointly, and increase spending on benefits as more people qualify as dependents. But those are not reasons to exclude gays, if fairness requires that they be entitled to marry. It just heightens the need to reform entitlements on other bases. Some argue that traditional marriage has stood the test of time and shouldn’t be lightly discarded. I am not sure how well it has weathered heterosexuals’ stewardship. Allowing gays to marry is not throwing away marriage. It is modifying marriage in a way that better serves its nature and purpose: to solemnize, symbolize and formalize the love and commitment that exists between two consenting adults and the society in which they live. Another purpose of marriage is to regulate human behavior, including sexual behavior. Marriage establishes the rights and obligations of spouses and children. It regulates relations between a married couple and their families and larger society. These purposes are served if marriage is extended to gays. Gay people are a productive segment of society. They love and are loved. They want to marry to share and profess their love, to formalize their commitment to each other, and to be accepted and supported by their friends, family and community. Society has an interest in supporting their stable relationships because happy, healthy people make better, more productive citizens. That’s why I support gay marriage.

Donovan for Scarborough Town Council I typically do not write letters endorsing candidates for office. But as I reflect on the exceptional challenges that we face today, I believe it more important than ever that we take the time to carefully consider who we elect to represent us on our Town Council in Scarborough.

Bill Donovan’s resume reflects the kind of background we need to effectively guide Scarborough. Bill practiced law for 40 years, specializing in real estate and municipal law. Bill served on the Candia, N.H., Planning Board and the Souhegan Regional School Board in Amherst, N.H. Bill cares about the environment as well. Bill has been actively involved in water-quality testing for Maine Healthy Beaches and endangered species protection with Maine Audubon. I invite you to get to know Bill Donovan. I believe that once you do, you’ll vote for Bill Donovan for Scarborough Town Council this November. Michael Wood Scarborough

Higgins Beach bath house too costly for Scarborough

Is it just me or does anyone else in Scarborough care about spending over $300,000 for a bath house at Higgins Beach. First of all, who is going to walk that far from the beach to use it? What kind of a bath house could possibly cost this much? I didn’t even spend that much on building my house at Higgins Beach, including the land. Surely it must have gold-plated faucets, toilets, and shower heads. All I can say is that I will have to start using that bath house instead of my own bathroom. Yes, having a bath house there would be nice, but a $300,000 bath house? Philip Galipeau Scarborough

Back in the summer of 1994, when I was still in shape to attempt such a thing, I set out to climb mile-high Mount Katahdin with my then-13-yearold daughter Hannah. We only made it as far as Chimney Pond because the summit was in the clouds and the ranger was advising people not to go above the tree line. I must say, I was greatly relieved.

The Universal


Hannah and I had a memorable day on the trail and got to see Maine’s iconic mountain up close, but we did not have to test our mettle (or my vertiginous fear of heights) crossing the Knife Edge. I console myself that 50,000 people a year climb Katahdin, so Edgar Allen Beem it’s not that big a deal. But then I guess it’s like running a marathon; it’s not an uncommon achievement, but it is a feat of personal endurance. Hannah, now 31 and the mother of two, may make it to the top of Katahdin one of these days, but I probably never will. Not only do I have no desire to do so, I am woefully out of shape, get winded just walking up a couple of flights a stairs, and the sturdy leather hiking boots I bought for the assault on Katahdin have sat unused in the basement for 18 years.

them to turn back. As you have to be at least 6 years old to go above the timberline in Baxter, I stayed behind at base camp, a rather mongrel inn/cabin/camping ground jammed in between two lakes held apart by an ugly green metal dam, babysitting lovely little Ollie. She devoured all the books I could read her as well as all the apples, bananas, yogurt, cheese, graham crackers and toast I would feed her. She also delighted in feeding her rice cakes to a brace of ill-behaved ducks that followed us up from the lake shore. Shortly before the Katahdin party returned, Ollie and drove into town and purchased a memento of the trip, a giclée print of Mount Katahdin by Marsha Donahue that I had seen the day before at her North Light Gallery. Nora, Mike, Carolyn and Tess returned safe and sound, but unsatisfied. Nora, in particular, was determined to make it to the summit the next day. After supper, we spent the evening in goodnatured banter about the relative merits of Mount Katahdin and Mount Washington. Even though I know better, I insisted Maine’s highest mountain must be higher than and certainly superior to a New Hampshire mountain that tourists from New Jersey can drive up in their SUVs. OK, so Mount Washington may be higher, but Katahdin is more of a mountain than Washington ever was. Early Sunday morning, the day having dawned bright, cool, and blustery, Carolyn and I packed up Ollie and headed for home while Nora, Mike and Tess went back up Katahdin in the wind.

Daughter Nora is the mountain girl of the family. An environmental educator, she lives in a little wood-heated cabin atop Tin Mountain in Jackson, N.H., with her husband, her 1-year old daughter and a family of bears. She and husband Mike, who works for the AMC, spend a lot of time tramping around the White Mountains in all sorts of weather and have climbed in the Rockies and the Olympic Range.

Because the Roaring Brook quota of hikers had been filled for the day, they went up the back way via the Abol Trail and, being three fit young people, made it to the summit easily. The photos they brought back show a very pleased Nora standing beside the Baxter Peak sign the day after her birthday, but also Nora and Tess hunkered down between boulders to get out of the incessant wind.

Last month, Nora got it into her head that she wanted to climb Katahdin on her 30th birthday, so Carolyn and I and daughter Tess joined Nora and Mike and their daughter Ollie on a weekend expedition to Millinocket, Baxter State Park and Mount Katahdin. It was supposed to be a beautiful weekend weather wise, but as they say in Millinocket, “The mountain makes its own weather.”

I have no doubt that one day soon, all my girls will decide to climb Katahdin together, leaving Grampy behind to care for a brood of grandchildren. Should I ever take a notion to climb Katahdin myself however, I’m pleased to think that Maine’s great molar mountain will always be there waiting for me – majestic, mysterious and sublimely indifferent to the affairs of men.

Nora, Mike, Carolyn and Tess set out early Saturday morning to hike in from Roaring Brook to Chimney Pond, but had a collective change of mind and went via the Helon Taylor Trail instead. They got as far as Chimney Peak just before the Knife Edge before freezing rain and hail forced

Stephanie Marie Dario, 55: A courage that inspired SCARBOROUGH — Stephanie Marie Dario, 55, died Sept. 30 at the Gosnell Memorial Hospice House after a sevenyear battle with a rare form of cancer. Dario was born Dec. 2, 1956, the daughter of Barbara A. Carey and Alan W. Philbrick, in Waltham, Mass. She moved to Rumford, graduating from St. John’s Parochial School and Rumford High School, where she was active in clubs, sports and cheerleading. She enjoyed psychology, and as early as high school began a lifelong study of understanding people, which led to a

career she loved. After attending Rutgers University and the University of Maine, she began work as a business consultant in training and development at Boise Cascade Paper Company in Rumford. Her career included jobs as a project manager for Bass Shoe in Falmouth and a training and development specialist for Hannaford Brothers in Scarborough. After moving to Rhode Island, she served as manager of training and development for the G Tech Corp. Private consulting was also a part of her career that brought her great satisfaction, and


she consulted for small businesses and friends. As a lifelong learner, she always considered her work to be a wonderful part of her life. She married Lawrence Dario in June 1991, and a year later the couple had a daughter, Dove Steffi Dario. Dario is predeceased by her maternal grandparents, Romeo and Rolande Brown, of Augusta; paternal grandparents Ralph and Louise Philbrick, of Rangeley; stepfather Edward J. Carey, of Scarborough; and a cousin, Stephen C. Merrill, of Portland. She is survived by her daughter, Dove Steffi Dario, of South Portland; her mother, Barbara Ann (Brown) Carey, of Scarborourgh; her father, Alan Whitten Philbrick, of Rangeley; sisters Valerie Ann Philbrick and Marie Alane Philbrick,

Teen volunteers in Ecuador and Galapagos Islands SCARBOROUGH — Kelsey Given, of Scarborough, recently returned from a month of performing volunteer service in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.

Given was one of 21 high school students who traveled to Patate, Ecuador, this summer to help local organizations with social service projects. The students painted school classrooms, constructed a kiosk where resident artisans will sell tourist wares, and built a chicken coop that will enable a nursing home to obtain additional



income and food. The students also volunteered at a day camp for young children, and later traveled to the Galapagos Islands to help remove invasive plants that threatened a native habitat. The project was coordinated by VISIONS Service Adventures, an international learning service program.

Bike-a-thon to benefit Frannie Peabody Center for 26th year SCARBOROUGH — On Monday, Oct. 8, at 9:30 a.m., Scarborough Middle School will hold its annual bike/walka-thon to raise money for the Frannie Peabody Center, Maine’s largest HIV/ AIDS service organization. The Ed Wimert Memorial Bike/Walka-thon for AIDS includes a 20-mile bike route and a six-mile walking route. Both routes start at the Clam Bake Restaurant parking lot on Pine Point Road. In addition to the middle school, supporters of the bike/walk-a-thon include the Scarborough High School Student Council, the Scarborough High School Key Club, the Scarborough Police Department, Scarborough Explorers and parents of students. Since 1986, the event has raised $190,000 for the center, which serves over 500 people living with HIV/AIDS and provides prevention services for atrisk populations. The middle school is hoping for over 200 participants at this year's event, and encourages parents and other community members to join the fun.

SeniorLiving Helping seniors drive safer, longer Since January 2011, nearly 10,000 Americans turn 65 every day, joining the fastest growing age group in the nation. According to a recent American Automobile Association (AAA) survey of the booming population, nearly half of seniors worry about losing their freedom and mobility when the time comes for them to transition from driver to passenger. From understanding how vision changes can affect one’s ability to drive at night, to researching the effects certain medications can have on one’s driving ability, it’s important to get the facts about driving for seniors. Use these tips from AAA to help ensure you and your family members are driving safely:

check for nearby traffic before changing lanes? Does traffic cause you to feel anxious? When was the last time you had an eye exam? You can take a Driver 65 Plus self-assessment at SeniorDriving.AAA. com to get a clear picture of just how good your driving skills really are, and you’ll also get suggestions for improving your driving.

Be aware of how aging affects driving habits

From hearing and vision loss, to mental fitness and reaction time, seniors may not notice the gradual differences that can impact their driving ability. For instance, by age 60, your eyes need three times the amount of light to see properly as they do for people 29 years old, which means it’s more difficult to see at night. Likewise, one-third of Americans suffer from hearing loss by age 65. This can pose a problem, as senior drivers may be unable to hear high-pitched noises such as emergency response vehicles while on the road. Reaction times can be slower for seniors as well. But preventative measure can go a long way. • When following other vehicles, seniors should increase the distance between their car and the car in front of them, to allow more time to react to sudden braking. • Eliminating distraction in the vehicles

Find the right fit With the wide array of vehicles offering all sorts of convenience features, seniors may not realize that their car may not be optimally adjusted to fit them. For example, sitting too close to the steering wheel can interfere with steering and cause fatigue, as well as injury, should the airbag deploy during a collision. • Make sure you have at least 10 to 12 inches between your chest and the steering wheel. • When seated properly, you should be able to see the ground in front of your car within 12 to 15 feet and 1 1/2 car widths left and right. • Visit to assess the safety of your vehicle, find the proper seat and mirror adjustment and more.

Take a refresher course No matter how many years a driver has been on the road, a refresher course can help reinforce the basics such as identifying road signs, as well as provide information on updated driving rules and new vehicle technologies.

Delaying retirement has financial, social benefits

The need to save for retirement is something professionals start hearing about from the moment they begin their careers. Whether it's parents extolling the virtues of retirement plans or employers who encourage their employees to take advantage of their retirement programs, saving for retirement is never far from the minds of professionals.

As important as such savings can be, many workers are deciding to delay their retirements. As much as men and women envision retiring to a faraway seaside villa for their golden years, such

retirements are not terribly common, and many older workers have begun to recognize the economic and social benefits of delaying retirement. Those undecided about when they want to say goodbye to the office should consider the following benefits to delaying retirement. • Fewer years to worry about financing your lifestyle. Thanks to advancements in medicine and more and more people living healthier lifestyles, men and women are now living longer than in years past. While living longer,

healthier lives is a plus, it does have an effect on retirement. Because people can now expect to live longer, they must ensure their money lasts long enough. By delaying retirement, men and women will have fewer retirement years to finance. • More chances to save money. It might be your dream to retire early, but you could be doing yourself a great disservice by ending your career prematurely. Men and women at or near the end of their careers are often making more money than they ever have, which

More and more men and women are choosing to delay their retirement, a decision that has both economic and social benefits.

Retirement from previous page

retire you could have substantially more in savings than you would have had you retired early. • Stay socially active. In addition to economic benefits, delaying retirement has social benefits as well. Many people get the bulk of their social interaction with colleagues and coworkers. When men and women retire, these opportunities for social interaction can dwindle rather quickly, and it's not uncommon for retirees to battle feelings of isolation. Delaying retirement allows you to easily maintain contact with friends and colleagues, and can lead to a better quality of life.

• The chance to give back. Many older professionals view retirement as being put out to pasture, where their years or experience aren't utilized. However, individuals who delay retirement can use their extra years around the office as an opportunity to leave a legacy for the next generation. This is something professionals find especially valuable as their retirement draws nearer and they want to leave a lasting mark, be it on their company, within their industry

or in the community in which their company operates. Delaying retirement provides more time to build this legacy, and can create a greater sense of fulfillment when men and women do decide to retire. Delaying retirement is growing increasingly popular. Men and women often see it as a chance to build a bigger nest egg and leave a more lasting legacy within their company and community.

SP earns first win; Capers, Red Storm fall (Ed. Note: For the complete Cape Elizabeth-Westbrook story, with additional photos and a box score, please visit By Michael Hoffer Just one of three local football teams earned a victory last weekend. The good news came from Waterboro Saturday, where South Portland held off the Mustangs of Massabesic, 3534, for its first win. The Red Riots had produced a mere 26 points in their first four outings, but came to life Saturday and barely held on down the stretch to improve to 1-4. South Portland (12th in the Western Class A Crabtree Points standings) hopes to make it two in a row Friday night when it hosts 2-3 Sanford. Last year, the Red Riots beat the now-Spartans twice, 42-34 in the regular season and 33-13 in the Western A quarterfinals. Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough weren’t as fortunate. The Red Storm hoped to stay undefeated when it went to unbeaten, powerhouse Thornton Academy, but ultimately suffered its first loss, 35-7. Scarborough had an opportunity to make an early statement when it took the opening kickoff and drove from its 20 to the Golden Trojans’ 4, but after

a sack, on fourth-and-goal from the 10, a bad snap resulted in a fumble which Thornton Academy’s Bobby Begin pounced on and returned 75-yards for a touchdown. The Red Storm never caught up, even though it moved the ball in the first half to the tune of 217 yards (146 through the air by quarterback Dillon Russo). The Golden Trojans pushed the lead to 21-0 at halftime thanks to second period scoring runs from Andrew Libby and Nick Kenney and early in the fourth went up, 28-0, on another Libby TD run. Scarborough

broke the ice on its next series, as Russo hit Chris Cyr for a short touchdown pass, but Libby put it away with another long scoring run, dropping the Red Storm to 4-1 (third in the Crabtrees). Scarborough will host No. 8 Massabesic (2-3) Saturday at 3 p.m., as it looks to get back on track. The teams didn’t play in 2011. The Capers hosted Westbrook and despite some good early opportunities, fell, 22-7. Cape Elizabeth failed to capicontinued page 24

October is upon us. A new month means local teams are either priming for the postseason or jockeying for positioning. Golf’s team state championship match is Saturday and individual champions will be crowned the following weekend. Cross country has just one regular season meet left. Soccer, field hockey and volleyball are all rapidly coming to a close. Here’s a glimpse at where things stand and a look ahead:

victory Tuesday evening in its quest to improve its playoff standing. The Capers were coming off a 3-0 setback at York, but at rival Greely, got a first half goal from Noah Haversat and made it stand up in a 1-0 triumph over the Rangers to improve to 3-5-1 (11th in the Western Class A Heal Points standings, where the top 12 teams qualify for the postseason). Cape Elizabeth plays host to Freeport Friday and welcomes Falmouth Tuesday. Scarborough has a solid hold on the top spot yet again with an 8-0-2 mark, following wins over visiting Windham (4-0) and host Noble (4-2). In the victory over the Eagles, which avenged last year’s regional final loss, Wyatt Omsberg had two goals and Austin Downing and Kenny Hodgdon also scored. Against the Knights, Hodgdon had two goals, Downing and Dimitri Roumeliotis one apiece. The Red Storm was at Sanford Thursday and visits Westbrook Tuesday.

South Portland fell to 6-2-2 and seventh after Tuesday’s 1-0 loss at Gorham. The Red Riots had previously won at Bonny Eagle, 2-0, on two goals from Ahmed Suja. South Portland hosted Cheverus Thursday in a Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser (please see for game story) and welcomes Thornton Academy Tuesday. In Western D, Greater Portland Christian School was 5-4 and eighth in the Heals (only the top seven make the playoffs) at press time. The Lions were coming off a 3-2 win at Islesboro (Jeremiah Hammond, Eric Pearson and Sam Whiting all scored) and a 2-1 loss at A.R. Gould. GPCS was home with Chop Point Wednesday, went to Richmond Friday and hosts Pine Tree Academy Monday.

Recap from previous page it eight straight last Thursday with an impressive 3-0 home win over York, as Montana Braxton, Kathryn Clark and Lizzie Raftice tickled the twine. Tuesday, against visiting Greely, neither team was able to generate much in the way of opportunities and the contest ended in a 0-0 draw. “There weren’t many chances,” Cape Elizabeth coach Luke Krawczyk said. “You saw two teams who are defensively strong. I’m proud of the girls. Our biggest thing is not conceding. We gave up two goals in the first half against Falmouth (in the first game of the season) and just one more since. The girls have worked hard. We’ve probably scored more than last year. We’ve created chances.” The Capers (fifth in the Western A Heals) go to Freeport Friday and visit two-time defending Class B champion Falmouth Tuesday. “We just need to continue to win,” Krawczyk said. “We play some tough teams still. We’ve got (Heal) Points on the board already. Last year at this time is when we started to drop off.” Scarborough was tied with Windham atop the Heals with an 8-1-1 mark at

press time. The Red Storm fell from the unbeaten ranks last Thursday, 1-0, at Thornton Academy, but salvaged a 1-1 home draw with the visiting Eagles Saturday, when Hadlee Yescott scored a goal with 3:54 remaining. Scarborough nearly won it in overtime, but Ashley

Gleason’s bid was denied on a great save from Windham goalie Kate Kneeland. “We tied them, but I’m happy with the tie,” Yescott said. “We knew Windham’s a great team. It’s a little disappointing, but we’ll take it. We always talk about being desperate. It’s the first time we’ve been down going into halftime. We have a lot of heart. Everyone wanted it.” “We had to battle back after a tough week,” said Red Storm coach Mike Farley. “You could tell we were fatigued, but we pushed to the end and got the tying goal. It shows the character of this team.” Tuesday, Scarborough handled visiting Noble, 7-0, as Sarah Martens erupted for four goals, Yescott added a pair and Morgan Rodway scored as well. The Red Storm hosts McAuley Friday and goes to Westbrook Wednesday. South Portland is 4-7 and 14th, just outside of a playoff spot (the top 13 teams qualify) after beating visiting Bonny Eagle, 2-1, in overtime, and falling at home to Gorham, 3-2. In the victory, Jenacee Bradbury had the winner, Shae O’Brien also scored and Emma Russell made seven saves. In the loss, Bradbury and Ericka Lightner had the goals. The Red Riots are at Thornton Academy Wednesday. In Western D, GPCS was 0-6 and seventh in the Heals at press time. The

Lions lost, 4-1, at Vinalhaven in their last outing, last Friday. GPCS is at Richmond Friday and hosts Pine Tree Academy Monday.

Field hockey

Scarborough’s field hockey team has all but locked up homefield advantage for the playoffs once again. The Red Storm, which still hasn’t surrendered a goal in 2012, improved to 12-0 with recent blankings of visiting Thornton Academy (4-0) and Windham (2-0) and host Deering (4-0). Ellen Walker had three goals and Katie Granzier one in the win over the Golden Trojans. Against the Eagles, a win which avenged last year’s stunning playoff upset, Raechel Wallace and Grace Whelan scored. At the Rams, Granzier had two goals, Whelan and Emily Bunting one apiece. Goalie Shannon Hicks continued to be impossible to beat, as she’s been all season. Scarborough was home with Noble Wednesday and closes the regular season at Kennebunk Friday. South Portland has work to do if it hopes to qualify. The Red Riots were 2-81 and 14th at press time, but only the top 11 teams make it to the postseason. South Portland dropped a 2-1 home decision to Biddeford last Thursday and settled for a scoreless tie at Windham Monday. Kristina Salafia had the goal against the continued next page

The Capers were up, 7-0, at halftime, then everything went sour. Westbrook outgained Cape Elizabeth, 220 yards to negative-1 in the second half, scored twice in the third quarter to take the lead and put the game away with another score in the fourth period, improving to 4-1 with a 22-7 victory, dropping the Capers to 2-3 in the process. “I don’t know what happened,” said Cape Elizabeth coach Aaron Filieo. “We left some points on the board in the first quarter. They took momentum from us. We couldn’t get in rhythm offensively in the second half.” The Capers (seventh in the Western B Crabtrees) have a daunting task Friday when they go 4-1 Marshwood (tied for third), which is coming off its first loss, 36-6, to Wells. The Hawks figure to be fired up. Last year, host Cape Elizabeth beat Marshwood, 40-15. After hosting Fryeburg, Cape Elizabeth closes at Mountain Valley. “I keep telling the guys to continue to stay on path,” Filieo said. “It is coming together. My feeling is if we get into the playoffs and we face these teams again, we know we can play with them. We’ve got to get in. We have tough games coming up and we have to win them.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ Follow him on Twitter: @foresports.

Record set at rainy Maine Marathon By Michael Hoffer After many years of ideal weather, the Maine Marathon/ Relay/Half Marathon finally ran into the ugly side of Mother Nature last year. The 21st running Sunday morning of the race, which traverses Portland, Falmouth, Cumberland and Yarmouth, also featured rain, but what will be most remembered is a great turnout and a record-setting performance from the champion.



Dan Vassallo, a Colby College graduate, who lives in Peabody, Mass., set a new course mark while winning the marathon in 2 hours, 21 minutes, 12 seconds. The women’s marathon champion was Eliza Tibbits, a Falmouth native, who finished in 3:03:50. The half marathon was captured by Old Town’s Spencer McElwain (1:10:23). Cynthia Jerob, a native Kenyan who

The relay champion was Yankee Dixie Dandee (2:47:37). The female relay champion was Gressives (3:04:59). A total of 101 relay teams took part. “It was another great turnout

Out & About

Portland Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Music Theater

professional career in musical theater around the world spans four decades and many thousands of performances. Plus her husband is in the longest-running Broadway show in history, “Phantom of the Opera.” Capitalizing on his many New York theatrical connections, Good Theater cofounder and artistic director Brian Allen has snared Lacey for a two-night Portland gig in a format that is modeled on the old Merv Griffin television show. Allen will interview Lacey, who will perform a number of her best-known songs from her long career. Victoria Stubbs will music direct and play keyboards. Good Theater presents “An Evening with Florence Lacey” at the St. Lawrence Arts Center, 76 Congress St. in Portland (top of Munjoy Hill) at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 6 and 2 p.m. Oct. 7. Call 885-5883.

By Scott Andrews October has arrived with its usual outburst of fall colors plus the usual outburst of musical and theatrical activity. (This fall also marks the 20th anniversary of “Out & About,” which debuted in 1992.) The Portland Symphony Orchestra, Maine’s premier performing arts organization, opens its 2012-2013 program year with two performances of “Fanfare for a New Season,” Oct. 7 and 9. Lyric Music Theater, which epitomizes community theater in Maine, recently opened its 60th season with “Anything Goes,” the classic Cole Porter musical comedy about romance aboard a transatlantic ocean liner. It runs through Saturday in South Portland. Portland’s Good Theater will open its 2012-1013 season Oct. 6-7 with a special two-night musical event, which features Broadway star Florence Lacey. Catch another great musical artist on Columbus Day, when Regina Spektor motors into Portland’s State Theatre, part of a national tour in support of her latest CD, “What We Saw from the Cheap Seats.”

Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man” is one of the best-known pieces by an American classical composer, and it will be prominently featured when the Portland Symphony Orchestra opens its 2012-2013 musical year Oct. 7 and 9 with a program titled “Fanfare for a New Season.” Those concerts also mark the start of maestro Robert Moody’s fifth season with the PSO – a milestone that’s definitely worth celebrating. The concerts will begin in a rousing fashion with contemporary composer Mason Bates’ “Mothership.” The first half concludes with one of the most memorable musical spectaculars from the Romantic Era: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Doing the solo piano honors will be Andrew Russo, who has made 10 commercial recordings, one of which got a Grammy Award nomination. The concerts will wrap up with Copland’s Symphony No. 3, which includes his famously brassy fanfare. The Portland Symphony Orchestra plays this program twice at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: Oct. 7 at 2:30 p.m. and Oct. 9 at 7:30 p.m. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Amy Torrey plays an evangelizing nightclub diva in Lyric Music Theater's current production, "Anything Goes."

thing Goes,” with score by Cole Porter and script by Guy Bolton, P.G. Wodehouse, Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. Since its 1934 debut, “Anything Goes” has been a staple of American musical theater at all levels, from Broadway to high school productions. Lyric, which exemplifies community theater in Maine, has mounted a fine production which runs through this Saturday in South Portland. The story is far too complicated to explain, but the characters include a nightclub diva who doubles as an evangelist and a machine gun-toting gangster who wouldn’t hurt a flea. Sandwiched in between are the expected ingenue and juvenile plus numerous improbable characters. The setting is a transatlantic ocean liner en route to Europe. Lyric’s excellent cast, led by director Celeste Green, is capably headed by Amy Torrey as the singer-evangelist, with Kelsey Gibbs and Sean Senior giving laudable performances as the ingenue and juvenile. Top character roles go to David Bass-Clark as a comically hyperactive but undersexed English nobleman and Adam Normand playing buffoon as the gangster. Lyric Music Theater, 176 Sawyer St. in South Portland, presents “Anything Goes”

‘Anything Goes’ Lyric Music Theater’s forte is classic Broadway musicals, and no show exudes the spirit of the Great White Way as “Any-

An Evening with Florence Lacey “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina.” Andrew Lloyd Webber’s haunting refrain is familiar to millions of aficionados of musical theater. This weekend the holder of the world record for most performances of Eva Peron in “Evita” will be holding forth in Portland as Good Theater launches its 2012-2013 season with a special two-night run of “An Evening with Florence Lacey.” I didn’t know that anybody kept such statistics, but Lacey’s claim certainly seems credible. She’s played the charismatic and enigmatic wife of the Argentinean dictator on Broadway, the U.S. national tour and an amazing 12 years on multiple international tours. And don’t write her off as a one-trick pony. Lacey has also starred in Broadway productions of “The Grand Tour” and regional stagings of “Sunset Boulevard,” playing the mesmerizing aging diva, Norma Desmond. Other starring roles have include “Les Miserables” and “Hello Dolly.” A native of the Pittsburgh area, Lacey’s

Monday night concerts are comparatively rare in Portland, but this Columbus Day promises a major exception. Regina Spektor, a Russian-born singer-songwriter who has found an interesting niche in the New York musical scene, will be coming to Portland’s State Theatre on a national tour in support of her most recent CD. As a child of 10, Spektor arrived in America in the late 1980s, part of a wave of Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union. She’s found a new home in New York’s East Village musical milieu. She listened to Joni Mitchell as a teenager and counts her among her own chief influences. Spektor is also frequently compared to Ani DiFranco. Spektor recently released her sixth studio album, an 11-song compilation of brand new and fairly new songs under the intriguing title, “What We Saw from the Cheap Seats,” which is spinning on my CD player as I write this.. This 2012 album covers a broad spectrum of her writing and vocal talents, which range from infectious pop melodies, such as “Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quittez Pas),” which is sung in both English and French, to baffling abstractions, such as “All the Rowboats,” which is about paintings “imprisoned” in art museums. “How” is based upon a slow and majestic melody, which “Jessica” is has a rollicking melodic bounce and equally catchy and clever lyrics. Only Son will open the show, which is slated for 8 p.m. Oct. 8 at the State Theatre, 609 Congress St. in Portland. Call 956-6000.

South Portland from page 1 “It can’t just be ‘here’s our ordinance,’ because we already have a few (ordinances) that people totally discard,” April Tracy said. A note of caution was introduced by Sawyer Street resident Linda French, who was concerned the ordinance would allow neighbors with more petty disputes to pursue complaints. “You are opening the door to an awful lot of worms. Every time you make a rule that confines some people, you take away rights from someone else,” French said. Councilors including Tom Blake and Maxine Beecher said they understood French’s perspective, but Blake said the requirements needed for council consideration

Scarborough from page 1 granted if it is determined that paying on the current schedule would cause undue hardship to the property owners. The original deferred payment plans allowed property owners 10 years to pay assessments levied to help pay for infrastructure improvements on the Haigis Parkway corridor extending from Payne Road to Route 1. The assessment ordinance was originally enacted in 2004 and revised in 2006. Hall said the newest revision affects property owners George Curlew and Michael Scamman, who are nearing the end of deferred payment plans and facing substantial “balloon” payments on the balance of the assessment. Council documents show the Curlew was assessed almost $252,000 and Scamman was assessed $282,500

of a nuisance property met a high standard. “I look at this as a last resort,”Blake said. “When you get 10 people that complain about something that is obnoxious, that is a pretty valid argument. This ordinance goes directly after the problem.” The ordinance would govern all private properties in the city, but first came about because of residential complaints made to Code Enforcement Officer Pat Doucette and City Manager James Gailey. Doucette said she has two petitions from neighbors living near 90 Anthoine Street and 119 Wythburn Road about conditions on those properties. If the council approves and enacts the ordinance at its Oct. 15 meeting, the first hearings could follow shortly after. “I guess you are going to find out real quick if this language holds up,” Doucette said. Replacing the bridge to the entrance of the South Port-

land Public Library branch on Wescott Street comprises the majority of almost $100,000 in work at the branch. The $60,000 allocated from undesignated funds will be combined with $20,000 of library maintenance fund money to replace the closed, rusting pedestrian bridge. Library Director Kevin Davis estimated the bridge is about 35 years old. Portland-based Wright-Ryan Construction was awarded the project contract after eight bids ranging from $80,000 to $200,000 were received. The library branch heating, ventilating and cooling systems will also be replaced at a cost of $17,000. Damon Mechanical Services of Auburn was awarded that contract.

for improvements as the town sought to recoup about half the total cost of the infrastructure project. The affected properties are on the market, and Hall said he would consider initial two-year extensions on deferred payments as the market recovers. Residents of Tenney Lane in the Settlers Green Estates subdivision near Wiley Park are expected to see relief from chronic flooding conditions as councilors approved an easement for the enlargement of an existing stormwater detention pond. The approval allows Saco-based Normand Berube Builders to expand the pond as part of its stormwater management plan needed for its expansion of the subdivision. Hall also reported news of an Oct. 25 public hearing regarding a proposed rate increase by the Scarborough Sanitary District. District Office Manager Sandy Kempton said plans

to hold the hearing at Town Hall have changed because of absentee voting in council chambers. The 7:30 p.m. hearing will be held in the Scarborough High School cafeteria. At 6:30 p.m. On Oct. 24 , a workshop regarding proposed flood plain zoning revisions will be held in the cafeteria at Scarborough Middle School. Changes include requiring new construction and large-scale property renovations in federally defined flood plains to be three feet above the flood line as opposed to the current requirement of one foot. Hall said the ordinance changes affect about 1,000 properties and will be reviewed by the Planning Board Oct. 29 before a possible second reading by councilors Nov. 7.

Debate from page 1 “Maine doesn’t need 25 to 30 of them,” she said, noting the charter schools should not be publicly funded. “Who’s going to be benefiting, students or private profit-makers?” In a lightning round of questioning, the candidates clung to party lines. Monaghan-Derrig approved of same-sex marriage and same-day voter registration, while Thompson wanted civil unions for the former and said she did not support the latter. In a unique turn of events, all four candidates in House District 121 and Senate District 7 can credit their candidacies in part to Sen. Cynthia Dill, D-Cape Elizabeth, who is now running for U.S. Senate in District 1. In 2011, Dill left her house seat for a state senate seat, forcing the special election between Monaghan-Derrig and Thompson. This year, she vacated the District 7 senate seat to jump into the U.S. Senate race, opening up the race to Republican Mike Wallace and Democrat Rebecca Millett. Wallace and Millett, who are facing off to represent Cape Elizabeth, South Portland and the eastern portion of Scarborough, both agreed the economy was the top issue in this election, although their approaches to growing Maine’s economy varied significantly. Wallace said lowering tax rates across the board would help encourage economic growth. Millett said her focus would be reducing medical costs, and in the short term, encouraging the Legislature to push for bonds. A common thread that ran through every debate was

• • • • •


the disapproval of partisanship and gridlock in the Legislature. Millett said her experience on the nonpartisan Cape Elizabeth School Board will help her find common ground in Augusta. “Frequently, if we all left the room a little bit grumpy, often we were able to make some decisions that helped move us forward,” she said. In the Legislature, Wallace said it is important to be adaptive to challenges and work toward solutions. “There will be times I will be standing against my own party and say, ‘this is what District 7 wants,’” he said. In the three-way race for House District 123, representing part of both Cape Elizabeth and South Portland, the candidates also emphasized bipartisanship in the Legislature. The Republican Jake Myrick and Independent Roger Bishop both approved of charter schools, although Bishop had reservations. “There is nothing wrong in my mind with trying something else,” Bishop said. “The limit of 10 is fine. We should stop there until some time passes and we can do some measurements.” Democratic candidate Scott Hamann said he does not support charter schools right now because of financial instability in public schools. “School budgets are unpredictable and I don’t think it’s the right direction to go right now,” he said. “If (the economy is) more stabilized it could work. As it’s proposed I don’t support it, uniformly.” When it came to discussing social welfare programs, the candidates were all over the map.

Myrick said MaineCare is being abused and needs to be revised. “We have to provide necessary funds for the elderly, children and disabled, not the people who are ablebodied Mainers; we should encourage them to work,” he said. Assessment of the program should be paramount, Bishop said. He stressed the importance of getting data from other states to assess where Maine stands and then working to reform the system. “After a reasonable period of time you should be weaned off the system, unless they can prove they need that support,” he said. But he acknowledged the need for spending to maintain appropriate workloads for case workers assessing need. Hannon said MaineCare needs to be de-stigmatized, noting his foster kids receive benefits from the system. “It’s not bad people accessing MaineCare,” he said. “There are some inefficiencies and we should keep costs down and optimize quality.” The same-sex marriage question split Myrick from his opponents, where he opposed it on religious grounds. The students will also host a second debate between the five School Board candidates vying for three seats and a discussion with the three uncontested Town Council candidates. The debate begins at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Town Hall, 320 Ocean House Road. The debates will be broadcast on Cape Elizabeth Public Access Channel 3 and rebroadcast several times before the election on Nov 6.
