News of South Portland, Scarborough and Cape Elizabeth

S.P. bans slingshots, pellet guns in public By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The City Council on Monday voted 6-1 to ban the use and open display of pellet guns, slingshots and bows and arrows in public places. The ban does not include the use of the non-lethal weapons on private property. The ordinance makes it a civil offense to use the weapons in public areas, including parks, and requires owners to transport the weapons in closed containers. “This is the lightest possible restriction we can enact and still do what was asked,” Mayor Tom Coward said. The ban was proposed while the council was updating its weapons ordinance to comply with state law. Police Chief Edward Googins originally asked the council for a complete prohibition on pellet guns and slingshots, including their use on private property. But Googins said the latest proposal is “sufficient.” “It’s intended to keep our community safe and target those who are acting unreasonably,” he said. Councilor Tom Blake, who See page 39

New windows likely for asbestos-plagued Scarborough school

Firefighters remembered

By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — The Town Council is expected to hold a special meeting next week to appropriate funds for 28 new windows at the Wentworth Intermediate School. The windows will replace one set of windows per classroom that are being kept closed due to concerns about asbestos. The council heard from School Board Chairman Brian Dell’Olio, Facilities Director Todd Jepson and Principal Ann Mayre Dexter about concerns for the safety and learning environment for teachers and students at the school during Wednesday evening’s Council meeting. Jepson explained that during the installation of 225 storm windows this summer, asbestos was discovered in the glazing on the existing windows. As a result, the administration decided to keep

all windows closed to prevent asbestos particles from entering classrooms. The strategy became an issue when temperatures rose into the 90s for several days early in the school year. “I’m a parent of a Wentworth student,” Councilor Jessica Holbrook said, “and I’m disgusted that school was not cancelled on those 90-degree days.” Holbrook added that in the future she would like to see proposals for repairs of the school buildings over proposals for laptop computers, referring to the School Board’s request last spring for $668,000 in capital improvement funds to purchase computers for every high school student, a request the council denied. Jepson also addressed concern about mold and radon discovered See page 30

FEMA pulls flood maps, promises cooperation By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The Federal Emergency Management Agency is withdrawing new flood insurance maps proposed for Cumberland and York counties. Instead, FEMA on Friday said it will undertake a more collaborative approach to redraw the

floodplain maps, which could affect waterfront development and force property owners to buy more expensive insurance. The agency’s decision comes after intervention from the state’s Congressional delegation and a flood of concern from communities, many of which had hired an

independent consultant to contest the proposed maps. When FEMA released the maps earlier this year, oceanfront properties in many communities, including Portland, South Portland, Falmouth, Harpswell and Cape Elizabeth were included in the floodplain for the first time.

Firefighters wearing pink to help raise awareness of breast cancer By Randy Billings PORTLAND — Pink is not the color typically associated with firefighters who stand ready to charge into burning buildings. But firefighters in Portland and South Portland will put their egos aside, and don pink T-shirts for three days next week.

Vol. 9, No. 41

The attire is more than a bold fashion statement; its goal is to raise awareness and funds to support the fight against breast cancer. The firefighters will wear the T-shirts from Oct. 13-16 and fire engines in Portland will display pink ribbons throughout the entire month of October, in con-

Scarborough state rep pleads guilty to OUI By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — State Rep. Sean Flaherty, D-Scarborough, was driving drunk last August when he crashed his car at southbound Mile 23 of Interstate 295 in Freeport. Flaherty, 25, pleaded guilty Oct. 1 to operating under the influence on the night of Aug. 8, when he was returning from a wedding, reportedly swerved to miss an animal, over-corrected and flipped his Toyota Avalon. According to Maine State Police, Flaherty was fined $500 and had his license suspened for 90 days, the standard punishment for a first offense.

Comment on this story at:

Flaherty had some cuts and bruises, but was mostly unharmed in the crash. No other cars were involved. Police said a blood test conducted after Flaherty was transported to the Cumberland County Jail found he had a blood alcohol content of 0.16 percent, twice the legal limit of 0.08. “I am working to put the accident behind me, use it as a humbling and important lesson, and move forward to try to bring some-

responsibility. “If revenue doesn’t go up, then spending has to decrease,” he said. In his 2009 School Board campaign, Sturtevant suggested combining the middle school and Pond Cove school, and addressing teacher salaries as a way to cut costs. He also endorsed participation, or pay-to-play, fees for school activities. Town Clerk Debra Lane said voters must spell write-in candidates’ names correctly enough so that their intent is clear when the ballots are read. After the election, Lane said the resident with the most write-in votes will be asked to accept election. If the winner declines, a vacancy will be declared and a special election will have to be held.

The three boards agreed that it would be advantageous to hire an outside consultant to create a master plan to examine the maintenance of existing structures in the park, possibilities for generating additional revenues and handling trash and parking issues. The boards also discussed the possibility of hiring a consultant to create a business plan in order to see if funds could be generated by concessions, weddings or events on a smaller scale. The information gathered from the business plan could be incorporated to the more long-term master plan of the fort. At their next meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 13, councilors may vote to appropriate $40,000 to the Fort Williams Capital Fund for an update of the master plan and development of a business plan for the park, vote to appropriate $25,000 to the capital fund for an update of just the master plan, or take no action.

House District 121: Lusk challenges Dill in Cape Elizabeth By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — Incumbent Democratic state Rep. Cynthia Dill is challenged by Republican Eric B. Lusk in the House District 121 election. Dill has represented Cape Elizabeth for four years. Lusk ran unsuccessfully against Sen. Justin Alfond in 2008 in the state Senate District 8 race in Portland. He is a replacement candidate for Lauren M. Chatmas, who moved to Washington, D.C.

Cynthia Dill Dill, 45, of Shore Road, is married and has two children. She is a civil rights lawyer, is working as the director of the Common Cause Digital Democracy Project in Washington, D.C., and is an adjunct instructor at Southern Maine Community College. Dill She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont and her law degree from Northeastern University School of Law. Dill serves on the Legislature’s Judiciary and Ethics committees. She is the chairwoman of the Broadband Strategy Council and said she would like to continue to work to bring a green data mill to Maine that would use the Three-Ring Binder Project, a network of 1,100 miles

of fiber optic cable that will deliver highspeed Internet around the state. Dill has managed budgets while serving on the Cape Elizabeth Town Council and in her private law practice and said her priority is to protect and support the state’s businesses, schools and natural resources as well as the elderly, disabled and children. She said while the concept of the state’s Essential Programs and Services funding formula is fair, it needs to be examined to ensure all students have the resources they need to learn. “I am committed to improving the education funding formula and more importantly making needed reforms to education as a whole,” she said. Dill voted to support gay marriage in the last legislative session and said she would “happily and without reservation” support it if the issue comes up again. She has drafted legislation that exempted Cape Elizabeth and other highperforming and efficient school districts from mandatory consolidation, and has supported more than $35 million in investment to Maine’s broadband network. “I am running again because I want government to work smarter to provide people, businesses and communities the opportunity to succeed,” she said. “I want to help make our government accountable, responsible, and capable of providing effective oversight without excess bureaucracy.”

Sirocki said she would research what other states have done in response to pension crises, citing Utah’s reform that she said included a fixed state Sirocki contribution of 10 percent of an employee’s salary and allowing employees to opt out of the state pension in favor of a 401(k). “I have advocated for a better school calendar to maximize classroom time, which resulted in the reduction of the number of early release days,” said Sirocki, adding that she also spearheaded a successful campaign last spring against borrowing for the high school laptop computer program through the capital improvement plan.

The current system does,” Dell’Olio said, adding that portability within the pension system would alleviate some of the current issues.

He said he would like to see the formula for school funding be reworked so Scarborough is not left with million-dollar budget gaps to fill.

House District 123: Myrick challenges incumbent Eberle By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — Incumbent Democratic Rep. Jane Eberle is seeking a fourth term representing House District 123 against Republican challenger Kenneth Earl Myrick. District 123 includes part of South Portland and part of Cape Elizabeth. Eberle said the state needs to reduce spending and increase taxes to balance the budget, while Myrick opposes tax increases. Eberle is an environmentalist who supports renewable energy to reduce utility costs for businesses. Myrick supports nuclear energy and believes that wind turbines should be a local decision. Eberle supports gay marriage and a localoption sales tax; Myrick does not.

Jane Eberle Eberle, 57, is the director of business partnerships for the South Portland School Department. She has lived in the city for 28 years and has three grown children. Her husband, Brett, is a physical therapist. Eberle said she is seeking re-election because she believes there Eberle needs to be legislative continuity.

Cumberland County: Voters asked to revise government By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — When voters go to the polls Nov. 2 to elect local and state representatives, residents of Cumberland County will also vote on whether to approve the county’s first charter. For the past 250 years, the county has operated without a charter, instead following rules that were set by the state Legislature. Two years ago, voters elected a committee whose mission was to create a Cumberland County Charter. The nine-member commission completed its work this summer and is sending to voters a charter that proposes revising several aspects of county government. If approved, it will eliminate the elected positions of treasurer and register of deeds. The treasurer’s duties – which basically consist of signing checks – will be absorbed by the county-hired finance director. The register of deeds position would become an appointed job. The positions of sheriff, judge of probate, register of probate and district attorney would remain elected. The Charter Commission is also recommending increasing the number of commissioners from three to five. Currently, commissioners each represent about 90,000 people each. Increasing the commission to five members would give each commissioner about 50,000 constituents. Comment on this story at:

“I don’t think now is the time to turn over this work to someone who does not have as deep a connection to the community as I have,” she said. Eberle said she believes the environment is “at risk.” She supports efforts to improve energy efficiency and renewable energy, including solar and geothermal, but believes the state needs to be careful about where it allows wind turbines. As a member of both the Joint Standing Committee on Natural Resources and the Joint Standing Committee on Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Eberle said she is particularly interested in stopping the spread of invasive aquatic species. “If we lose our lakes, people don’t come to fish,” she said. To balance the budget, Eberle said the

state needs to cut spending and increase revenue. She said she would promote further consolidation of school districts where it makes sense, seek efficiencies in other state programs, and raise taxes on soda, alcohol and tobacco. “I really liked spreading out the tax base and cutting the top tax rate,” Eberle said of the tax reform package that was repealed by voters. Eberle said she believes education is the basis for economic growth, but has struggled to reconcile that belief with the Legislature’s history of cutting education funding. She believes that more creative partnerships, including internships, between schools and private

House District 124: Kaenrath versus Barter in South Portland By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — Incumbent Democratic Rep. Bryan Kaenrath is seeking re-election in House District 124 against Republican challenger Adam C. Barter. District 124 represents the west end of South Portland. Neither candidate believes taxes are too high in the state. But Barter supports a local-option sales tax, while Kaenrath

does not. Barter supports the push for wind power in the state, while Kaenrath said he is “torn” about wind turbines, which have a negative aesthetic affect on Maine’s wilderness. Kaenrath supports gay marriage, while Barter said he “will not oppose it.”

Adam Barter Barter, 34, lives on Settler Road with his two young children and wife, Trisha, who works in medical billing. Barter, who has worked in the mental health field for 10 years, has lived in South Portland for three years. This is his first campaign for public office. Barter Barter said he would support spending cuts and reducing the state’s reliance on borrowing to get the state out of its “spending mess.”

After interest is paid, he claimed, bonds often cost more than the investment is worth. While education and the Department of Health and Human Services are frequently targeted for cuts when trying to balance the budget, Barter said he would look for savings among state agencies that have not faced significant cuts. Although he was not familiar enough with the budget to offer specifics, Barter said he would do the necessary research to figure out which agencies could absorb the cuts. “There has got to be other places where there is duplication of services,” he said, noting DHHS could be streamlined. “Stones have yet to be overturned.” Barter said he does not favor new taxes that target tourists. Instead, he said Maine needs to bring in more visitors through better marketing of the state as a four-season recreation destination. “It’s not just a summer state,” he said. Barter said he would support a localoption sales tax to help municipalities deal with reduced state funding. “The more power the municipalities have, the better,” he said.

Kaenrath, 27, lives on Keswick Road and is pursuing an online master’s degree in public administration through Marist College in New York. He is finishing his second term as a state representative and has lived in South Portland for about five years. Kaenrath said he Kaenrath believes the state’s economic growth is being stunted by a shortage of highly skilled and educated workers. While the state may not be in a position to increase its investment in education, he said post-secondary education needs to be stressed to high school students. State budget shortfalls are the result of an unstable tax base, Kaenrath said, which could have been stabilized by the tax reform package that was repealed by voters. While tax reform is still needed, Kaenrath said he does not believe it will be at the forefront. If anything, he said he would like to pursue a “watered-down” version of the last reform package. Meanwhile, across-the-board spending cuts will be needed, Kaenrath said, to balance the budget, which he described as “pretty lean.” “I don’t think we’re being too extravagant,” he said. “Everyone is going to have to take hits and make due with what they have.” Kaenrath offered only tepid support for wind turbines, which he said will have a negative aesthetic affect on Maine’s landscape. “We have to be careful about how fast we jump on the wind bandwagon,” he said.

House District 122: Farr challenges Morrison in South Portland By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — Incumbent Democratic Rep. Terry Morrison is seeking re-election in House District 122 against Republican Howard Reed Farr Jr. District 122 covers the east end of South Portland. The candidates differ on the cause of the state’s budget shortfalls. Farr believes the state is spending too much and, if elected, said he would target fraud and abuse of welfare, including prohibiting smokers from receiving food stamps. Morrison said the state is not overspending; it’s just not generating enough revenue, because wages are low compared to other states. Morrison supports gay marriage and would consider a local option sales tax. Farr opposes both.

Howard Reed Farr Jr. Farr, 76, grew up in South Portland, where he and his wife have five grown children, 13 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. The Mussey Street resident retired from Data General in 1990, where he was a quality control engineer. Since then, he has sold insurance and worked as a self-described “grunt” in the seafood industry. Farr said he volunteers two days a week for Meals on Wheels, every other week at

Portland’s Root Cellar and cooks two nights a week at Portland’s Preble Street Soup Kitchen. He said he is running for office because he believes Maine has become a welfare state and needs to control spending. “I’m kind of fed up with the politics that have been going on in Farr Maine,” he said. Farr said he would look to welfare for savings, by calling for a review of the way the Department of Health and Human Services evaluates applicants. Handicapped and disabled people need benefits, he said, but new residents shouldn’t automatically qualify. Farr said smokers should not be allowed to receive food stamps and that DHHS should test applicants before approving benefits. He suggested swabbing applicant’s mouths for tobacco residue. “I really don’t think that anyone who spends $7 on a pack of cigarettes needs food stamps,” he said. “I just believe there is a lot of falsification of information (by welfare recipients).” Health-care costs for small businesses are “astronomically high,” Farr said, as are

out-of-pocket health expenses. He said he supports allowing employers to pool their resources to get reduced rates. Farr said tax incentives are needed to attract new businesses to the state, which he said is “geographically handicapped.” The community college system needs to update its offerings, cutting “antiquated” programs in favor modernized curriculum, like bio-technology and wind energy, he said. While unable to provide specifics, Farr said the state budget needs to be scrutinized for waste. The new governor will need strong support to make big changes, he said. “There are many, many issues to look into,” he said.

Terry K. Morrison Morrison, 39, lives on B Street and has been a resident of South Portland for seven years. He is completing his first term in the Legislature. Morrison, the general manager of the Inn at St. John in Portland, said he is seeking reelection because of the unfinished business of tax reform, expanding energy efficiency initiatives and implementing new federal health-care reforms. As a member of the Insurance and Fi-

nancial Services Committee, Morrison said federal health-care reform is “fabulous,” but is disappointed the effort fell short of implementing a single-payer system. “I’m a strong believer that health care is a right, not a privilege,” he said. Morrison said the state’s budget shortfall is not a case of overspending, but a lack of state revenue brought about by relatively low wages. Morrison “I don’t think we’re overtaxed in this state,” Morrison said. “It’s my opinion we make less.” Morrison said the state could increase revenues through better marketing, not tax increases. He would consider a localoption sales tax to help municipalities, but does not consider it a good solution. Morrison supported the Legislature’s last attempt at tax reform, which would have lowered income taxes for top earners and expanded the sales tax. He believes it was repealed by voters because they didn’t understand it. “It wasn’t explained very well,” he said.”We’re desperate for tax reform, but continued page 37

House District 127: Volk challenges incumbent Flaherty in Scarborough By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — The election in House District 127 is between Democratic incumbent Rep. Sean Flaherty and Republican candidate Amy Volk. The district covers coastal Scarborough, including Scarborough Marsh, Pine and Black points, to the borders with Saco and Cape Elizabeth.

Sean Flaherty Flaherty, 25, is running for a second term after beating Republican John McDonough in 2008. He serves on the House Utilities and Energy Committee. Flaherty is a life-long resident of Scarborough and graduated from Scarborough schools, going on to George Washington University on a swimming scholarship. He has been a swimming coach for Scarborough and for Maine Swimming, is a member of the board of

Project GRACE and the New Leader’s Council. Flaherty said in his first term the Legislature approved, with bipartisan support, two balanced budgets, neither of which raised taxes. He said he is confident the state will be able to balance the budget again by streamlining the cost of government and reducing Flaherty wasteful spending. He added that priorities include ensuring continuation of services such as education, road and bridge maintenance and property tax rebates. “I fought to make sure Scarborough got its fair share of state resources for our schools,” Flaherty said. “I worked to ensure that the property tax rebates would

be fully funded again.” He said the school funding formula should be thrown out and replaced. Flaherty said he would support blending Social Security benefits into the state pension system, which he said would save the state millions of dollars. He emphasized that there is no silver bullet to solve the pension crisis, but that he would work for a bipartisan solution. Flaherty said he would support marriage equality if a bill comes up again, citing the 2009 vote in which the majority of Scarborough voters voted no on Question 1. He said he believes all people must be treated equally under the law and that the state should not be in the business of defining love. Flaherty said he would support creating

Expel students requiring restraint Anyone mystified by the poor results of our public education system despite ever increasing public funding needs look no further that the recent series in the Forecaster on school policies governing “physical restraint” of students who apparently cannot comport with behavior not requiring “physical restraint.” The apparent focus in the articles is the potential for choking for students with behaviors requiring physical restraint. The real point, not addressed in the articles, is how in such an evolved, enlightened and educated society have we gotten to the point where there are so many students so frequently requiring “physical restraint” that we need such detailed policies and procedures. The real issue is why are students requiring “physical restraint” allowed to remain in our public schools to disrupt and impede the education of what I must assume are the vast majority of students who do not require physical restraint to behave? Apparently, it is not enough that teachers are required to engage in combat, they must also engage in combat without risking injury to the misbehaving student. It seems no doubt we have gotten here by exalting the ever expanding rights of the misbehaving “victim,” with a recently defined “diagnosis,” to completely overrun the rights of the vast majority of non-disruptive students. The cost, in terms of dollars and in the lack of achievement to the majority, is incalculable. The question isn’t “how do we make the policy safer;” it is “why can’t we expel the students who can’t behave without physical restraint?” Michael K. Martin Cumberland

cons of the project could go on forever, I will be voting for the renovation project for three basic reasons: Accreditation — Every city and town is responsible for providing a strong school system to develop youth for upcoming opportunities and challenges. Our high school currently risks losing its accreditation because of the condition of the building. That is unacceptable. We must fix the problems. Due Diligence — The deteriorated conditions at the high school have been known for a long time. Committees have been formed. Studies have been conducted. Skeptics have been involved. The result is a good proposal that addresses the problems with the building while keeping an eye on costs. Investment — Every generation pays for certain things from which the next generations will benefit. In this wonderful city, at this point in time, the high school needs to be renovated. The next generations will benefit for decades to come. For all these reasons, and more, I don’t think we can afford to not do this project now. Please take the time to attend information sessions, read articles and learn more about the high school renovation project. Then I hope that you will join me in voting for the project during this election. Chris Keiter South Portland

Scarborough council needs new blood I urge the voters to bring more new faces to the Scarborough Town Council. I’m a strong advocate of recycling – except when we’re talking about town councilors. Consequently, Kerry Corthell and Iver Carlsen are going to receive my votes. If you want a more transparent town government, then vote for people who listen well, do their research, and communicate effectively. I assure you that Iver Carlsen and Kerry Corthell are those people. I have faith in their thoughtfulness, their experience, their characters, and their ability to perform in a challenging job. If you sincerely want change in town government, vote for it and help sustain it. Please. Susan DeWitt Wilder Scarborough

Vote for Cumberland County Charter On November 2, 2010 voters in Cumberland County will have the opportunity to adopt the county’s first-ever home rule charter. Currently, the county operates without a charter. A charter is a template by which we organize and manage our government. It lays the legal foundation for what kinds of services the county will provide in the future. Cumberland would be the third county to adopt a charter — after Aroostook and Knox counties. You began the process to adopt a home rule charter in November of 2008 when you elected six of us to serve on a charter

commission. We now offer you the results of our two-years investigation: a more-efficient form of regional government, which will improve the way the County delivers services to participating communities, and reduce the cost of delivering them. Voters will enjoy greater transparency and accountability in government. The Charter Commission believes residents will directly benefit from new and innovative programs and services, such as the successful Community Development Block Grants and the new countywide 9-1-1 service, which brings top-notch emergency response to participating communities. The Charter Commission urges you to vote ‘yes’ on question 4 on your state ballot: County Charter Referendum: “Shall the County approve the new Charter recommended by the Charter Commission?” You have an opportunity to make a decision that will impact you, your family and neighbors for years to come. Please visit our website at to view the Charter and to contact Charter Commissioners. Thank you. Kathleen Babeu Cumberland

Renovation will keep taxpayers in city I encourage all property tax payers in South Portland to support the bond issue for high school renovation. If you think voting no is a way to keep your taxes low, please consider: Parents with children in elementary grades are watching this vote closely. If this bond fails, those who can


afford to move when the real estate market improves will likely go to surrounding communities who’ve done major secondary school upgrades. When that happens, real estate prices in South Portland will drop along with the level of property taxes once collected on them. That leaves behind a larger proportion of low income and elderly property owners who can least afford to cover the costs of services, costs that will not decrease. At the City’s master plan forum held this summer, we learned: 1. South Portland has one of the oldest per capita populations in the state. 2. The percentage of property taxes paid by commercial properties has shrunk dramatically in recent years including those from The Maine Mall which has stiff regional competition and whose property taxes are based, in part, on sales. This means that the residential side is already paying a larger share of the tax burden and will likely continue to do so but with lower income residents. Interest rates are low, South Portland’s bond rating is at an all time high, and contractors are looking for work. Let’s bite the bullet and do this now before the problems and cost get worse.

The case of the shrinking Saltines The other day, I got a call from the high school nurse. My daughter, Ophelia, needed to be picked up. Apparently, her symptoms indicated that she may have suffered a concussion: nausea, lightheadedness, No Sugar trouble focusing on her work. How might this have happened, the school nurse inquired? It was a reach, but I interjected that perhaps it may have had something to do with the fact that her 11-year-old brother, Charles, had, two nights earlier, kicked her with enough force to leave a skateboarding shoe imprint upon her delicate forehead. So I picked her up, took her home and then headed to the Sandi Amorello local grocery store to gather Saltine crackers, ginger ale and the makings for homemade chicken noodle soup. The usual trio of healing. As I opened the box of saltines, I noticed something was amiss. The crackers just didn’t “feel” right in my hand as I slid them from their protective plastic sleeve. Upon closer inspection, I ascertained that they indeed were not “right.” They were not the same Saltines I had been serving my nauseated children for the past 17 years. They were smaller. Most people may not have noticed, but, being a designer and quite aware of details, I noticed. They had shaved a quarter inch or so off of the width of each cracker. Our Saltines had shrunk.


���������� �������� ���� �� ����������� ����

This was disturbing to me on a number of levels. First, they still cost the same price. Second, it was just another casualty to add to my list of shrinking food items. It began with cans of Campbell’s soup. They got smaller. Next, it was cans of tuna. Shrunk. After that, it was boxes of cereal. Still the same height. Still the same width – so when they sit upon a shelf at the grocery store, they appear to be the same size as they have always been. But those clever people at Kellogg’s or General Mills have made them thinner – the boxes are now not as thick as they used to be. Which means, you guessed it: same price, less cereal. And to add insult to injury, not only are our food items diminishing in size, but so are our personal hygiene products. Ladies and gentlemen, our toilet tissue is shrinking. Yes, you heard it here first. I believe it was last spring that I purchased my usual mega-roll package of quilted Northern at Target, only to pop a roll onto the spindle and notice that something was quite wrong. My designer antennae, trained to notice details, went on high alert. Why was there suddenly so much of the shiny silver bar showing on each side of the ultra soft, quilted toilet tissue roll? Had the toilet-tissue holder grown overnight? No. Indeed, it had not. Instead, the toilet tissue roll had shrunk. Same circumference. But narrower. Do the people who make Northern toilet tissue think we will not notice such things? Meanwhile, chain restaurants such as Applebee’s are

serving up single dinner-sized portions of food large enough to feed a family of four for a week. And everything comes with two pounds of french fries. Even if you order pasta, you apparently still require more carbohydrates. No wonder so many Americans are overweight. With all of that food to digest, one would think that the toilet tissue rolls would be getting larger, not smaller. So what exactly is happening here? Please tell me, because it boggles my mind. Are the excess profits from our toilet tissue and cans of shrinking tuna now going toward the production of underpriced, disturbingly over-sized plates of food at places like Olive Garden? Is my toilet-tissue money subsidizing the meals of the patrons of such establishments? A couple of years ago, I purchased a book about the quintessential French lifestyle. In it, there was a chapter about food. Good food. And how less of one overpriced, delicious thing is better than more of an enormous plate of mediocrity. I have always agreed with this premise wholeheartedly. I will happily trade 10 pounds of french fries for one Meyer lemon. Just don’t shrink my toilet tissue.

Half a mayor is worse than none

I wasn’t particularly unhappy with the way that we have been voting in Portland. I was comfortable with the idea of each person having one vote. It is a relatively simple, straightforward, workable way to express a preference. One that has stood the test Short of time. I was unhappy that our directly elected, supposedly nonpartisan City Council has not been able to overcome its differences to effectively address many important issues. One of the most glaring of those failures was the way that the council bungled the process of selecting a contractor to rebuild the deteriorating Maine State Pier so badly that in the end the city was left with no contractor and a Halsey Frank crumbling pier. I felt that our city suffered from a lack of leadership and direction. I thought I was not alone. In November of 2008, voters approved the creation of a commission to review the City Charter. It looked like leadership might be on the way. And, not surprisingly, after meeting for two years, the Portland Charter Commission recommended that the charter be changed to provide for a popularly elected mayor who would serve four-year terms. The commission reasoned that Portland had outgrown its current, largely ceremonial mayor. (The current mayor is elected by the council, is the official head of the city for a


Comment on this story at:

year at a time, represents the city at various events, presides over council meetings, and, together with the council as a whole, oversees the city manager and city clerk.) The commission professed that Portland needs more: a mayor who can speak for the people, unify the council, implement policies, ensure that the budget reflects the city’s priorities, represent the city in interactions with other entities, and help Portland grow and prosper. The commission spent a lot of time worrying about ways to ensure that the new mayor would be legitimate. In the end, it proposed that the mayor be elected using ranked choice voting. The commission recommended RCV on the basis that it would ensure that no one gets to be mayor without winning a majority of the votes cast. Why the commission was so concerned that the mayor be able to claim the support of a majority is a mystery. Because the mayor that the commission proposes is little different from the current ceremonial mayor and would have little real authority. Although the new mayor would cost more. In its report, the commission said Portland is not ready for a strong executive mayor. It claimed that most Portlanders would not accept such a mayor. To the contrary, I think the city is clamoring for a strong leader. Someone with the ability to transcend the infighting that stymies the council. The commission was just afraid that, in a multi-candidate race, that leader might not be one of them or theirs. So, while proposing a mayor elected using RCV, the commission kept the professional city manager. He re-

mains the chief administrative officer of the city, in charge of the day-to-day operations of City Hall. He hires city employees, controls the departments, implements the council’s decisions, enforces the laws and ordinances, and prepares the city budget. The mayor is explicitly forbidden from becoming involved in the appointment of city employees and may not direct them. That doesn’t leave much opportunity for the new mayor to lead. She gets to give an annual address, and she has veto power over the budget, subject to being overridden by the council. The real power remains with the city manager. It’s a recipe for frustration for the incumbent and disillusionment for the people. How about a parliamentary mayor, a “prime councilor”? One of the popularly elected councilors, elected by a governing majority of the council, given the responsibility to implement the will of the people as expressed by the council. Give her authority over the city bureaucracy to do so. Let her draft the budget and control the departments. She would have the ability to lead as long as she maintained her majority in the council. Such a PC would have to have a program of positions on the major issues. She would have to build a governing coalition in the council in order to get to be PC. She would be legitimate. She would be effective. She would be a leader. She could make progress. It’s a lot more satisfactory than the thin gruel that the Portland Charter Commission has served. Halsey Frank is a Portland resident, attorney and former chairman of the Republican City Committee.

It is time for serious adults in Congress By Dean Scontras Our country faces a great decision. We can continue the wild, deficit spending until the wheels come off the economy and we plunge into fiscal chaos, or we can take the necessary steps to rein in spending and save our country from financial disaster. Voters hold that decision in their hands. They can return to Congress the same people who have driven us towards national insolvency, or they can replace them with a new generation of Republicans sworn to fiscal responsibility. We’ll know the answer on Nov. 2, but we have already seen evidence that primary election voters understand the gravity of our national debt crisis. They have booted out the jaded oldguard politicians in race after race, nominating fresh faces who are running not for personal glory, but to hand down to their children a country that is not hopelessly in debt. Regardless of all the other issues in this election, the debt is crisis central. If we don’t solve this intelligently, nothing else will matter. As a candidate for Congress in Maine’s 1st District, I

have spent months on the road presenting a detailed breakdown of our $13 trillion national debt and the impact of budget projections that forecast trillion-dollar deficits as far as the eye can see. An educated electorate is our best hope to reach a consensus about what needs to be done. In speaking to groups all over the district, I have watched the lights go on in the eyes of ordinary folks once they hear the facts. My opponent, Rep. Chellie Pingree, is a career “progressive” who follows the lead of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. She votes the Pelosi line so faithfully that Maine voters could save a lot of money by just sending a rubber stamp to Washington. These are the people who squandered more than $800 billion on a stimulus plan that did little more than keep unionized state government workers employed for another year or two. They promised that the biggest spending bill in American history would keep unemployment under 8 percent. But we have seen it shoot up to just below 10 percent. For the more than 50,000 Mainers who are out of work, this experiment in Keynesian economics must seem like a cruel

joke. The spending package contained $71,000 to study the effects of cocaine addiction on monkeys and $390,000 to study the effects of malt liquor and marijuana on adults. They followed that up with “Obamacare,” embodied in a 2,500-page bill that few Democrats even read. If they did read it, they didn’t understand it. They didn’t say a word about the massive cuts coming to Medicare. They didn’t tell us that the cost of the program during its first full 10 years (2014-2023) is now projected at a budget-crushing $2.4 trillion. In a word, they lied to get this disastrous program enacted. There were much more reasonable and affordable fixes to our health insurance situation. But Pingree and her cohorts insisted on a program so costly and complicated that a strong majority of Americans now wants the whole thing repealed. In the process, the Democrats did nothing to control the cost of health care, the one thing that everyone wanted. Meanwhile, the country drifts toward a Greek-style continued next page

While there is much still to do, we have made some progress By U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree When I became a member of Congress a little over two years ago, our country faced some massive challenges: the worst economic recession in our lifetime, a federal budget that had gone from surplus to historic deficit in the previous eight years, two wars and soaring health-care costs. It has been a challenging time to be in office, to be sure, but I still wake up every day feeling honored and privileged to be able to serve the people of Maine. It would have been easy to just complain, but as a mom and small business owner I’ve learned that complex problems don’t solve themselves. You have to roll up your sleeves, get to work and start looking for solutions. Let me be clear about one thing: I am not happy with what Washington has accomplished over the last two years and feel there is far more that needs to be done. We need to do more to bring back good-paying manufacturing jobs to our communities. We need to get our budget deficits under control by growing our economy and eliminating tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas. And we need to truly to make health care affordable for every American.

While there is much still to do, we have made some progress. We passed significant reforms of the credit card and banking industries and passed the toughest crack down on Wall Street in history. Credit card companies are now prohibited from raising rates on existing balances or forcing you to pay over-the-limit fees. Banks are now banned from steering borrowers into more expensive loans or deals they can’t afford. And for the first time in history there will be a Consumer Finance Protection Bureau, whose sole mission will be to protect consumers from big banks and Wall Street. Health-care reform generated controversy from the very beginning. Opponents tried to scare the public with talk of “death panels,” and the insurance and drug companies poured hundreds of millions of dollars into trying to stop it from moving forward. Although these opponents succeeded in weakening reform and took out many key costsaving provisions, some common-sense proposals survived. Insurance companies can no longer cancel your coverage when you get sick and have to let you keep your children

Soon after taking office I traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan, where I met brave men and women from Maine and around America who are proudly serving our country. I left with a renewed commitment to fight to end those wars and to take care of our veterans when they come home. Although it wasn’t a popular stand to take with the leaders of my own party, I voted to block additional war funding. The billions of dollars we spend on those wars every week are better spent here at home, reducing our deficit and creating jobs. I also worked hard to make sure our veterans get the care and benefits they deserve, including bills to make it easier to get treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder and a requirement that National Guard and military reserve personnel get a full briefing on the benefits owed to them.

Scontras from page 8 financial catastrophe. The publicly held debt as a share of Gross Domestic Product will exceed 60 percent this year. More than 40 cents of every dollar Washington spends is borrowed money. Your kids and mine will have to pay it back. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, debt will reach 90 percent of GDP by 2020. The interest on this debt alone will reach $916 billion annually – one in every five tax dollars will go for interest payments. By 2022, interest outlays will exceed defense spending. And by 2037 – when the Social Security trust funds will be exhausted – interest payments will be double the Pentagon’s budget. In July, the CBO warned that the country faces major problems unless the wild spending is brought under control. The fast-growing debt, they said, combined with an unfavorable long-term budget outlook, “would increase the probability of a fiscal crisis for the United States. In such a crisis,” the report adds, “investors become unwilling to finance all of government’s borrowing needs unless they are compensated with very high interest rates.” Exploding interest rates would ripple through our entire society, of course, with devastating economic effects. Such a poor fiscal situation, the CBO said, can spiral out of control, because the government would need to borrow more money, even at prohibitive interest rates, to continue functioning. Dean Scontras of Eliot is the Republican candidate in Maine’s 1st Congressional District.

Pingree from page 8 ans’ care, I went to the president of that company and told him to end the practice. Anthem agreed and now half a million dollars in unpaid claims are being resubmitted. For all the big issues we deal with, the most important things I do are often right here at home. Whether it’s helping a World War II veteran in Sanford get the medals he earned, making it easier for an airplane manufacturer to get the financing required to set up shop in our state, or helping a Maine-based relief ship get clearance to head to Haiti, the work I do for Maine people is incredibly satisfying. This November we face some real choices that have real impacts on our lives. Do we want to give tax breaks to the rich that will add billions to our deficit, or make sure they start paying their fair share? Do we want to make health-care reform better, or give back control to the insurance executives so they can cancel your coverage when you get sick? Do we want to truly invest in the clean energy that will create jobs here in Maine, or keep relying on expensive foreign oil? And do we want to continue to crack down on the excesses of Wall Street, or give them free rein to cook up more of the risky schemes and speculative investments that destroyed 8 million jobs. In Congress, we hear from lots of political and business leaders, but after two years I still find that the best ideas and most common sense advice still comes from the neighbors, friends and fellow small business owners in my small community. That hasn’t changed and neither have I. U.S. Rep. Chellie Pingree of North Haven is the Democratic candidate for re-election in Maine’s 1st Congressional District.

The coming collapse of capitalism Now that news has become a form of satirical entertainment, it’s not surprising to find some of the most profound insights into world affairs turning up as jokes on “The Colbert Report,” “The Daily Show” and “Weekend Update” on “Saturday Night Live.” On SNL last week, for instance, faux-news anchor Seth Meyer reported that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a speech to the United Nations, had predicted the defeat of capitalism. “Predicted?” quipped Meyer. “At this point it’s more like he noticed.” Is capitalism dead? Are we destined for planned economies and state-owned The Universal businesses? Is President Obama really a socialist after all? No, no, and no. But, with any luck, we may be witnessing the beginning of the end of corporate capitalism. Though we want to believe that the worst of the recession is over, there are rumors from on high that the mortgage crisis and credit crunch may just have been tremors warning Edgar Allen Beem of a much more cataclysmic event yet to come. We hear talk these days about pension funds that will need to be bailed out, Social Security going bankrupt, university endowments evaporating, hospitals not being reimbursed and laying off personnel just as Baby Boomers enter old age. Beyond that there are prospects of states and nations unable to meet their financial obligations and the world economy imploding under the weight of debt, devalued currencies and trade imbalances. The steps taken by the Obama administration and the Democratic-led Congress – bank bailouts, stimulus spending, shoring up the auto industry, new regulations on the financial markets – have at the very least delayed the worst and may actually have avoided it. But if you just want to get it over with, if you want to destroy the existing economic order entirely, by all means vote Republican in November. If we put people back into power who would have let the banks fail in 2008, they will surely precipitate the economic end game. The irony, of course, is that the tea party tub-thumpers, who have taken over the GOP in hopes of ending all entitlement programs, privatizing social services, and further deregulating the financial markets in the name of free market capitalism, would essentially pre-


side over the collapse of the very free market capitalism they say they revere. You think it’s bad now? Just imagine what would have happened if McCain and Palin had won. They would let all of our institutions sink or swim on their own in the name of individual liberty, thus ensuring their failure and that of capitalism itself. What we saw during the laissez-faire years of the Bush administrations, when financial markets were unregulated and left to their own creative schemes to profit the few, is just what is wrong with unrestrained free-market capitalism. It is a system that rewards risk over responsibility and profit over productivity. Essentially, the United States has evolved an economic culture of death, one predicated on a bloated defense industry, insurance industry gambling, non-renewable energy, boom-and-bust real estate speculation, borrowed money, easy credit, instant gratification of advertised desires as opposed to demonstrated needs, over-medication driven by big pharma, and unhealthy and unsustainable agribusiness. The values underlying this corporate capitalism are all wrong. They reward short-term bottom-line thinking over a long-term investment in providing good products and good jobs. It is this sort of thinking that has shipped most of the good-paying manufacturing jobs in the U.S. overseas, where U.S. corporations can exploit cheap labor and lax environmental laws. There is a fundamental dishonesty and dysfunction about making money by charging exorbitant interest rates, over-leveraging investments, and gaming the system for a fast buck the way day traders, currency speculators, and hedge fund managers do. They create nothing of value other than paper profits for themselves. The silver lining to the coming collapse of corporate capitalism, however, is that, as the tea party seems to desire, we may be headed back to the 19th century. With capitalism and globalization in ruins, we may, of necessity, rediscover the social virtues of a merchant economy based on small-scale family farms, locally owned businesses, local goods and services, and reliance on self, family and community for our survival. Our standard of living will suffer, of course, but we may find our quality of life improving once we stop outsourcing our existence. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth.

Scarborough does it again Rainstorm no match for Red Storm who blank Gorham, 33-0 By Michael Hoffer SCARBOROUGH — After seven years in the Class A wil­ derness, the Scarborough foot­ ball team has arrived. Friday night, fittingly with stormy weather as a backdrop, the Red Storm ensured their best finish since moving up to Class A in 2003 and solidified their claim as a top contender with a decisive 33-0 home victory over Gorham. Scarborough broke open a tight game at halftime behind its secret weapon, sophomore Dil­ lion Russo (who sparkled in the “Wildcat” as quarterback), scor­ ing 20 points in the third period as it improved to 4-1, dropping the Rams to 0-5. “This is the first time we’ve had four wins in Class A,” said first-year Scarborough coach Lance Johnson. “It’s something we talked about all week. The kids were fired up to come out and take control of the game.” Another victory After winning just 12 times in seven previous Class A seasons, the Red Storm are becoming something special. Scarborough opened with a inspirational 3329 come-from-behind victory at Massabesic. Then, after falling, 33-7, at perennial power Thorn­ ton Academy, in a game closer than the final score indicated. Scarborough blanked visiting

Sanford, 14-0, then held off host Biddeford at historic Wa­ terhouse Field, 21-9. In that one, Red Storm senior running back extraordinaire Zach Bean was felled with an injury and will be out for at least a couple weeks. His absence forced Johnson to get creative on offense (more on that in a moment). Gorham was seeking its first win in five tries after losing to Cheverus, Deering, Windham and Westbrook. The Red Storm and Rams

were one-time Class B rivals and had met just three prior times in Class A. A year ago, host Gorham punished Scarborough, 52-14, but Friday night’s contest would be far different as the Red Storm beat the Rams for the first time since the 2002 Western B semifinals (34-0). With rain falling, the hosts went three-and-out in their ini­ tial series, but the Scarborough defense returned the favor and

Field hockey intrigue grows as playoffs near By Michael Hoffer A captivating and unpredict­ able field hockey regular season is coming to a close and there figures to be even more drama for local teams in the days to come. In Western Class A, Scar­ borough learned last weekend that it isn’t invincible, but the Red Storm bounced right back and reminded everyone why they’re the favorite. South Portland, by virtue of an upset home win over Scarborough, its third huge vic­ tory over a higher-rated foe this autumn, is now smack dab in the middle of the playoff hunt and could make life miserable for the rest of the field.

In Western B, Cape Elizabeth appears postseason-bound and has been very competitive all season. Giant killers South Portland hoped to be a playoff contender in 2010, but it lost its first four contests. The Red Riots turned their season around with a 2-0 win at Cheverus, the beginning of a four-game streak, then lost a 3-2 (overtime) decision at Portland last Thursday (despite goals from juniors Bri Bower and Olivia Edwards). They came out fired up Satur­ day, looking to beat Scarborough for the first time since Sept. 15, 2003 (3-1). continued page 18

Stretch run up next for teams

By Michael Hoffer With October upon us, it won’t be long before local ath­ letes and teams will be taking part in the postseasons of their respective sports. Golf team championships are just days away and field hockey’s regu­ lar season will be done by this time next week. Here’s a look at where your favorite teams stand as the days grow shorter and the games become more meaningful: Football Scarborough’s football team enjoyed an easy win in the rain Friday night, as did Cape Eliza­ beth and South Portland. The Capers improved to 5-0 with a 48-14 home romp over Gray-New Gloucester. Cape Elizabeth scored 41 points in the first half. Senior Jack McDonald converted a 2-yard run to get the party started. A 23-yard run from senior Vin Dell’Aquilla made it 14-0. TD runs from McDonald (8-yards) and Dell’Aquilla (37) gave the hosts a 28-0 advantage. After the Patriots got on the board, senior Robbie Martin scored on a 16yard run and junior quarterback Derek Roberts snuck in from the 1 for a 41-6 lead. Sophomore Sam Sherman’s 21-yard TD run gave Cape Elizabeth its final points. “You don’t really think about (the conditions),” said Roberts. “Your hands hurt, the ball’s slippery, but you just try your best not to fumble and get the ball where it needs to go, in the end zone. Throwing the ball was really slippery and it gets pretty heavy, so we just lined it up, pounded the rock and drove downfield. We started off slow this season, but we’ve found our groove and now we come out and do what we need to do, when we need to do it.” The Capers have a huge test at 4-1 Wells Friday night. The win­ ner will have the inside track for a home playoff game. Last year, at home, Cape Elizabeth downed the Warriors, 40-0. South Portland ended a twogame skid with a 32-6 home

Field hockey from page 17 Just 1 minute, 29 seconds in, junior Maraka Soule rattled the cage for a 1-0 lead. “We wanted to get some corners and get some shots off,” South Portland coach Heather Seavey said. “Maraka’s goal set the tone. I don’t think (Scarborough’s) been scored on much.” Undaunted, the Red Storm came right back and made it 1-1 when senior Sarah Bunting set up classmate Rachael Millett for a goal with 25:25 to go in the 30-minute first half. With 5:49 remaining before the break, Bower found a way to release a shot out

of a scrum in front of the Scarborough cage and beat Red Storm junior goalie Rebecca Mitchell for a 2-1 lead. “(The ball) was just right in front of me,” Bower said. “It wasn’t getting past me.” As expected, the potent Red Storm came out guns ablazing in the second half and had ample opportunities to pull even, but they just couldn’t finish. Early in the half, Edwards made a kick save on a shot off the stick of Scarborough senior standout Kristen Felt. Moments later, senior Christine Nguyen came up huge on a corner, kicking away a sure goal with Edwards out of the play. With 11:30 to play, off another Red Storm corner (they had a 12-1 edge for the game),

Nguyen and senior Michelle Callow were there to make the defensive save. In the final 10 minutes, Scarborough had two shots deflect wide of the goal and junior Kelsey Howard’s rush was broken up at the last minute. Down the stretch, the Red Riots were able to keep the Red Storm at bay and even gain possession on the Scarborough side of the field, eating up valuable seconds. When at last the final whistle sounded, South Portland exulted, celebrating its improbable 2-1 victory. “We wanted this since the beginning of the season,” said Bower. “We’ve worked for it. It was hard in the second half. They’re a good team and we respect that. We came out and played our hearts out.” “It feels so amazing to win against the best team in our region,” said Edwards (four saves). “I knew we could do it. Our defense kept it together. The offense came down and played defense. We didn’t start out great this season, but we knew we had talent and skills and we definitely have heart. The team loves each other so much. We’re a huge family. We support each other through everything.” “It’s my senior year so everything I’ve worked for, I let out in this game,” Nguyen added. “Same for the other seniors. We’ve come a long way. We’re such a close team now. We play with all our heart.” Seavey was almost speechless after her biggest victory in five seasons as Red Riots’ head coach. “I’m still amazed,” she said. “I’m just so happy right now. I think my kids play with a lot of heart this year. I think that’s the difference. We know we can be in every game and compete this year. We’ve come a long way this season and a long way in four years. “Scarborough’s still a strong team this year. They didn’t make it easy on us. At halftime, I said, ‘Let’s act like we’re down 2-1 and we need another goal.’ We had to be focused for 30 minutes. We played our best field hockey for 30 minutes. This gives us confidence that we can play with any team. It will be huge Heal Points-wise.” The Red Storm (who last dropped a

October 8, 2010

regular season game Sept. 14, 2007, 3-0 to Sanford) finished with a 7-5 advantage in shots on frame and Mitchell made four saves, but it wasn’t enough as their win streak ended at 26 games.. “If we’re going to lose, this is the time,” said Scarborough coach Kerry Mariello. “It’s a learning experience. We’ll take it and move on. It’s a bit of a reality check. South Portland came to play today. They’re a good team and they deserved to win. I knew it would be a fight. They packed in the defense and we had few holes. We beat ourselves by not executing opportunities that were given to us. It would have been nice to fight through being down and overcome, but it’s OK.” South Portland took a step back Monday with a 4-2 loss at Thornton Academy (Soule and senior Victoria Brookings had the goals) and is now 5-6. The Red Riots (fourth in the Western A Heal Points standings) hosted Windham Wednesday, go to Bonny Eagle Friday and finish the regular year at home versus Deering Tuesday. If it takes care of business, South Portland has a shot at playing at least one postseason game at home. “I just wanted to make the playoffs, but now we could get homefield advantage,” Seavey added. “That would be nice.” Bouncing back Scarborough, which outscored its first eight foes by a composite 42-2 margin before losing at South Portland to end a 26game win streak, was back in action Monday at home versus dangerous Westbrook and showed that its loss was just a hiccup. Scarborough got the jump with 19:45 to play in the 30-minute first half when junior Lindsay Dobecki took a pass from senior Kristen Felt and beat Westbrook junior goalie Maryssa Arsenault. “I was on the goalie and just tipped it in,” Dobecki said. “It was a great pass from Kristen. It was very important to come out strong. It shows we’re still a strong team and that we can come back after a loss.” continued page 22

October 8, 2010

Football from page 17 forced a Gorham punt. The Red Storm appeared to have a drive going on their second possession, but a 13-yard run from senior Scott Merrill was wiped out by a holding penalty. Scarborough would pick up a first down, but eventually had to punt. The Rams took over at their 47 with 3:46 to go in the first and proceeded to chew up over seven minutes, running 15 plays before the Red Storm made a stand. Strong running from junior Nick Kilborn, senior Kamron Alexander and senior Stephen Verrill helped Gorham pick up three first downs and move as far as the Scarborough 10 before a false start moved the Rams back five yards. On fourth-and-5 from the 10, senior quarterback Joey Lynch attempted a rare pass and Red Storm senior Mike Cyr came up huge, intercepting the throw and returning it 50 yards to deny Gorham’s lone serious scoring threat. “I just tried to read the play,” Cyr said. “I saw the quarterback roll out. I was in the right place. I was lucky.” “They drove the field, but we made a stand when we had to,” Johnson said. “We changed the defense a little bit and I think we stymied them a little bit. That was a big play by Mike Cyr.” Scarborough wasn’t able to do anything on offense, giving the ball away on downs at the Gorham 19, but the Rams went three-and-out and when Peters attempted to punt, he kicked nothing but air and the

Red Storm took over at the Gorham 24 with 4:09 remaining in the half. This time, the Red Storm capitalized and got in the end zone. After a 24-yard TD run from Merrill was called back due to holding, junior Scott Thibeault gained 3 yards. Russo then made his presence felt. He first ran for three yards setting up a thirdand-11, then dropped back and launched a rainbow pass through the raindrops to Cyr in the end zone. Cyr made a great diving catch and Scarborough was ahead to stay. “I was a little nervous, but everyone encouraged me,” Russo said. “It was a great catch.” “I got behind the safety and just went up and got the ball,” said Cyr. “(The rain) was a little bit tough, but we’re the Storm. This is our kind of weather.” Senior Nathan Provencher added the extra point and Scarborough took a 7-0 lead into halftime. The Red Storm only outgained the Rams 60-56 in the first half, but would open things up big time in the second half. After Scarborough forced a Gorham punt to set the tone, junior Matt Brown got in on the offense, gaining 31 yards to the Rams’ 38 on his first carry. Three plays later, on fourth-and-4 from the 32, Russo showed his running ability, racing up the gut into the end zone for a 32-yard TD and a 13-0 lead with 7:41 remaining in the quarter. Gorham turned the ball over on downs on its next series and the Red Storm began at the Rams’ 47. After Merrill ran for 3



yards and senior Jack Adams, the regular quarterback, threw incomplete, Russo went back to pass again and hooked up with junior Conor McCann on a 44-yard scoring throw. McCann made a nice adjustment to the ball and outran the secondary to paydirt. Provencher’s extra point made it 20-0 Scarborough with 3:38 left in the third. The visitors fumbled the ball away on the first play of their next possession and Thibeault pounced on it at the Gorham 13. After a 13-yard run from senior Mark Pearson was called back due to holding, it took Scarborough four plays to score. This time, Adams got involved, hitting Cyr from 18-yards out with 59.5 seconds left. Provencher’s extra point gave Scarborough a 27-0 lead and capped a dominant quarter which saw the hosts outgain the Rams, 129 yards to 33. “We tried to put the game away with the wind in the third,” Johnson said. “The kids were motivated to do that.” Early in the fourth, the Red Storm moved from their 6 all the way down the field to a final touchdown. A 33 yard Russo scamper moved the ball into Gorham territory. Russo later ran for 32 yards to set up a first-and-goal. Two plays later, Russo finished the drive with a 7-yard TD run to make it 33-0.

Scarborough’s defense put on the finishing touches and the Red Storm put their third successive victory in the books. “We’re the Storm and the storm’s followed us this year,” Johnson said. “This is the third game we’ve played in weather like this, but the kids believe we have stuff we can do regardless of the weather.” Russo was the story, rushing nine times for 115 yards and two TDs, while completing both pass attempts for 69 yards and two scores. “The line opened up holes,” he said. “They threw great blocks. We knew we had to come out firing in the second half and it worked out for us.” “I didn’t have anybody with experience to run the Wildcat with Zach injured, so (Dillion) stepped in,” Johnson said. “He’s a heady kid. He makes a lot of big plays.” Cyr had two receptions, both for TDs, good for 43 yards. He also ran four times for 23 yards. Adams completed 2-of-6 passes for 14 yards and a TD. Scarborough outgained Gorham in the second half, 253 yards to 41, and for the game (313-97). The Red Storm forced two turnovers and didn’t give the ball away on a night ripe for miscues. Scarborough was flagged four times for 34 yards.

Tuesday night. The Red Storm were coming off easy road wins over Noble (9-0, senior Brett Leighton led the way with three goals) and Kennebunk (3-0, behind a pair of tallies from junior Andrew Jones), but fell to 8-2 on the season (still first in the Western Class A Heal Points standings) after failing to convert at Deering. Scarborough was home against Windham Thursday and hosts Bonny Eagle Tuesday of next week. South Portland also has an 8-2 mark after extending its win streak to four by virtue of a 2-1 triumph at Windham (second half goals from senior Brian Campbell and junior Nem Kaurin keyed a rally) and a 4-2 home victory over Kennebunk (Campbell, Kaurin, junior Akiba Davis and senior Dillon Leary all tickled the twine). Kaurin now has eight goals and eight assists on the season, including four goals and two assists in his last three games. The Red Riots (seventh in Western A) were home against Thornton Academy Thursday and go to Gorham Tuesday. Cape Elizabeth is 7-1-2 and fifth in Western A after falling, 2-1, at Gray-New Gloucester and playing visiting Greely to a 0-0 draw in recent action. Senior Timmy Takach scored the goal against the Patriots. Sophomore goalkeeper Brett Parker stopped three shots versus the Rangers. The Capers played at Falmouth Thursday, visit undefeated Yarmouth Saturday and go to Freeport Tuesday of next week. In Western D, Greater Portland Christian School is now third in the Heals with a 6-3 mark after recent wins over A.R. Gould (9-2) and Chop Point (70) extended its streak to four in a row. Against Gould, Anthony Simpson scored five times and Ben Hammond added two goals and four assists. Matt Hammond and Jacob Rudloph also scored. In the shutout, Sam Carlson made four saves.

unbeaten and ranked first. Last Wednesday, the Red Storm blanked visiting Kennebunk, 2-0. They rolled, 8-0, at McAuley Friday, then edged visiting Windham, 1-0, in OT, Monday night to improve to 10-0. Against the Rams, senior Sarah Little and junior Emily Tolman scored. In the win over the Lions, Scarborough scored twice in the first four minutes and never looked back. Senior Margaret Palmer an sophomore Jess Meader led the way with two goals apiece. Junior Meghan Tyson (from senior Cortney Hughes) had the winner against the Eagles. Senior goalkeeper Jill Deering made five saves for her sixth shutout of the season. “It was an exciting game,” said Red Storm coach Mike Farley. “Windham always plays us tough. It was impressive the way we kept battling to get the win because their keeper made three saves that were highlight saves in the last 15 minutes. Instead of getting discouraged, we just kept pressuring.” Scarborough was at Deering Wednesday, then is idle until next Wednesday when it plays at Bonny Eagle. South Portland is in danger of missing the playoffs. The Red Riots were 4-4-1 and 12th in Western A at press time (only 10 teams make the postseason). Last week, South Portland was a 1-0 home winner over Bonny Eagle (on sophomore Jenacee Bradbury’s goal), then fell, 1-0, at home against Windham. The Red Riots were supposed to host McAuley Wednesday, but that game was postponed to Thursday due to rain. Friday, South Portland visits Thornton Academy. Wednesday of next week, it hosts Gorham. Cape Elizabeth played visiting GrayNew Gloucester to a 2-2 draw last Thursday, then lost, 4-0, at Greely Tuesday. In the tie, senior standout Karyn Barrett had one goal and the Capers benefited from an own goal to force overtime. At Greely, Cape Elizabeth fell behind 3-0 in the first half and despite ample chances (12 shots on goal), dropped to 5-4-1 on the year. “I’m pleased with the result, as much as you can be with a 4-0 loss,” said Capers coach Gary Newell. “We moved the ball well and put them under pressure. We just didn’t cash one in. I’m walking way proud of how we played.” Cape Elizabeth (ninth in Western A) was at Falmouth Thursday, visits undefeated Yarmouth Saturday and plays host to vastly improved Freeport Tuesday. “If we do things we did well (against Greely) against Falmouth and Yarmouth, we’ll get results,” Newell said. “We have four games left and we’re sitting well. We got our points from Greely already.” In Western D, GPCS is clinging to the

Roundup SP woman second at Maine Half Marathon

Michael Barriault / For The Forecaster

Football from page 19 Bigger goals The Red Storm have a great shot to run the table and get a high playoff seed. Friday night, Scarborough hosts Noble in the home finale. It then goes to struggling Marshwood and Kennebunk. For this resurgent program, the sky’s the limit. “We have to stay focused and work hard in practice and everything will work out,” Russo said. “We have to keep working hard and be

consistent and get better,” Johnson said. “The kids have come along in being a disciplined team. We have to keep getting better.” “I’ve never been with a better group of guys,” added Cyr. “We have great chemistry. Everything’s coming together at once. Expectations were low after last year. Everyone knew we could do better. We put in the work in the offseason. We have an attitude of expecting to win. We won’t underestimate anyone. We’ll keep working hard. It’s a big goal to make the playoffs in our senior year. We have confidence.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@

SMCC Athletes of Month Southern Maine Community College recently named its September Athletes of the Month. Tomm Stirling and Cady Gagnon were the winners. Gagnon, a junior midfielder for the women’s soccer team and a Culinary Arts major, is the team’s leading scorer with six goals. Stirling is a first-year Electrical Engineering Technology major. He’s a member of the Seawolves golf team and has averaged a 78 with a first place medalist performance in a home match. He ranked fifth in the USCAA national statistics.

Field hockey from page 18 With 13 minutes left, the Red Storm doubled their advantage, courtesy sophomore Stephanie Felt. On a penalty corner (Scarborough had an 8-6 edge for the game), Dobecki sent a pass to Felt, who launched a blast into the cage for a 2-0 lead. “It’s important to get a lead in big games, especially coming off a loss,” Mariello said. “It showed a lot of character and gave us our confidence back.” Undaunted, the visitors answered with just under 2 minutes to go before halftime. On a corner, senior Sarah Howard passed to senior Olivia Marsden, whose shot eluded Red Storm junior goalie Rebecca Mitchell, making it a 2-1 game at the break. At the start of the second half, sophomore Shannon Hicks was in goal and

The Seawolves face the University of New Hampshire Friday in a play-in game, beginning at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, the tournament resumes at 11:30 a.m., when No. 2 New Hampshire Technical Institute faces No. 3 Central Maine Community College. The SMCC-UNH winner meets top-ranked Vermont Tech 45 minutes after the completion of the first game. The championship game will be held 45 minutes after that one.

S.P. coaching vacancies

South Portland High School is seeking a first team girls’ basketball coach and a varsity baseball coach. Memorial Middle School has an opening for a 7th grade boys’ basketball coach. Mahoney Middle School is seeking a 7th grade girls’ basketball coach. Application deadline is Sept. 30. FMI, 767-7705.

despite some close calls, she and her defensive mates helped preserve the victory. “We were ready for momentum to change, but we held tough,” Mariello said. “Aggressiveness is the key. Shannon is an aggressive player. That’s what she brings for us.” Westbrook had an 11-5 edge in shots. Hicks made seven saves, Mitchell three. “There were a lot of blank stares after we lost, but it does take a lot of pressure off,” added Mariello. “(The girls) thought they had to be perfect. Now we can just play.” Scarborough (first in the Heals) was at Biddeford Wednesday, then has another home showdown Friday against No. 2 Cheverus (9-2), in a rematch of last year’s regional final. Tuesday of next week, the Red Storm close at Gorham. Scarborough hopes to win out to secure the No. 1 seed and play at home through the regional final. “We’re used to playing on turf so it’s important to get homefield advantage,” said Dobecki. “We’re coming together. If we keep talking, we’ll do great.” “Playing on turf is ideal for us,” Mariello added. “It’s a predictable game. It’s the way the game should be played and fits well with how we play.” Capers in the mix Cape Elizabeth fell short of the postseason in 2009, but are looking good in their quest to return in 2010. The Capers dropped to 6-5-1 after recent losses at York (3-0) and Greely (1-0), but were sixth in the Western B Heals as of Wednesday (the top seven teams get into the postseason). Cape Elizabeth goes to Falmouth Friday and closes Tuesday at Wells. The Capers need at least one more win to secure a playoff date. Postseason The playoffs start Oct. 16 with the preliminary round. The quarterfinals are Oct. 19 and 20. The semifinals will be contested Oct. 23. Each of those rounds will be played on the field of the higher seed. The regional final is at Scarborough High Tuesday, Oct. 26. This year, the state finals are at the University of Maine-Orono on Saturday, Oct. 30.

PORTLAND — NOAA Fisheries Service has awarded $1.4 million to Portlandbased Gulf of Maine Research Institute for New England groundfisherman to comply with new federal regulations. Last year, the federal government changed the way it monitors the groundfish industry, which includes 13 different species of “fin fish,” such as cod, haddock, flounder, that are caught three miles offshore and beyond. Previously, fishermen were monitored by number of days allowed at sea. The new monitoring program is based on pounds of fish caught by each ‘sector’ or fishing cooperative. New England has 17 sectors, with three sectors in Maine: The Sustainable Harvest Sector, Port Clyde Community Sector and the Northeast Coastal Communities Sector. The $1.4 million will be divided evenly between the sectors, entitling each sector to approximately $74,100. GMRI will administer the funds to the sectors to offset expenses related to complying with the new management program. The funds are a follow-up to an initial $1.7 million grant that GMRI received in October 2009 to administer and help support sector implementation.

Good deeds, donations MaineLine, a non-profit coalition of Maine businesses providing catastrophe relief and rebuilding assistance, raised more than $25,000 at the “Do Good with Your Game” Celebrity Golf Tournament at Scarborough’s Nonesuch River Golf Club. All proceeds will directly benefit school and community center rebuilding efforts in Haiti. Southern Maine Community College received a $10,000 donation from the Grainger Foundation for support of its trade programs and student scholarships. The Integrated Manufacturing Technology, Construction Technology and Heating Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration and Plumbing programs will receive $8,000.

The remaining $2,000 will be used to fund four $500 scholarships for students in those programs. The Casco Bay Culinary Association, a Maine chapter of the American Culinary Federation, awarded Wayside $1,000 to support the soup kitchen’s efforts to feed needy children in Cumberland County. South Portland-based National Distributors Inc., and Heineken, USA, presented a check on behalf of Cumberland Farms to the Portland Police Department for $3,400 as part of the ‘Heineken with a Heart’ community program.

Out & About

Fiddle phenom, jazz master, dance band visit Portland By Scott Andrews Portland music aficionados can look forward to a diverse group of visiting artists. Topping the list is Eileen Ivers, an IrishAmerican fiddling phenom who plays this Saturday and Sunday as the Portland Symphony Orchestra’s featured guest artist. These two concerts open the PSO’s 20102011 Pops Series. Portland Ovations hosts a visit by the Occidental Brothers Dance Band International on Friday; the venue will be the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus. The National Endowment of the Arts recently honored saxophonist David Liebman with its Masters of Jazz Award. Liebman will be visiting Portland’s One Longfellow Square on Sunday. And speaking of jazz at One Longfellow Square, the 18-piece Portland Jazz Orchestra, Maine’s top big band, will play on Monday. Portland Symphony Orchestra Pops She’s American by birth, Irish by parentage and has traveled the world with her striking blue fiddle. That’s the quick take on Eileen Ivers, the fiddling phenom who will be appearing this weekend as the guest artist as the Portland Symphony Orchestra opens its four-part 2010-2011 Pops series with concerts on Saturday and Sunday. Born in New York City of Irish-born parents, Ivers spent her summers in the Emerald Isle and learned Celtic fiddle style from some of that country’s masters. Although sometimes pegged as an Irish fiddler, she’s also absorbed a variety of diverse cultural influences that happily percolate through her music. (As I type this column, Ivers’ 1999 “Crossing the Bridge” album is spinning on my CD player. It features a nine-voice chorus of African women singing an arrangement of “Jama,” a traditional African song.) The winner of nine All-Ireland fiddle championships, Ivers has been dazzling audiences with her multicultural and genre-bending performances for decades.

Through appearances with the London Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, the Boston Pops, The Chieftains, Sting, and many others, Ivers has established herself as the pre-eminent exponent of the Irish fiddle in the world today. For her Portland appearance, she’ll be bringing her band, Immigrant Soul. This combo has headlined prestigious performing arts centers, guest star turns with symphonies and major festivals worldwide. Her PSO program ranges from light classical, with a distinctly Irish flavor, to traditional Celtic tunes rendered with symphonic scope. Two concerts are slated at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall: 7:30 p.m. Oct. 9 and 2:30 p.m. Oct. 10. Call PortTix at 842-0800. Occidental Brothers Dance Band International “Maine and Its Ties to Africa” is an ongoing thematic thread that links a number of offerings by Portland Ovations. This Friday’s appearance by the Occidental Brothers Dance Band International marks the first of that series in Ovations’ 20102011 calendar. Born from the Chicago-based West African highlife revival movement spanning the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, the Occidental Brothers Dance Band International blends soukous, Ghananian highlife, African jazz, rumba and other styles from Central and West Africa into an energetic concert experience. The tradition of the sound stems from the acoustic palmwine music of coastal towns in Ghana, Sierra Leone and Nigeria that progressed into big dance band music and on to African guitar band music over the past four decades. This ensemble will be joined in their Portland Ovations’ engagement by Congolese singer Samba Mapangala, a legend of African music. Plus there’s an educational component. Ovations Offstage hosts a free pre-perfor-

Chief Oscar Mokeme, director of Portland’s Museum of African Culture, discusses the tradition of African high-energy dance music and relates it to his native Nigeria. Mokeme also explores the contemporary cultural life of Maine’s growing African community. Catch this event at Hannaford Hall, 88 Bedford St. (on the University of Maine’s Portland campus). The concert is slated for 8 p.m., with the lecture at 6:30 p.m. Call PortTix at 842-0800. David Liebman Saxophonist, composer and educator: That’s the short summary of David Liebman, whose professional career in jazz has taken him around the globe from his native New York during nearly four decades. This past summer he was honored with the Masters of Jazz Award by the National Endowment of the Arts. That award goes with a host of others, including an honorary doctorate from the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. A two-time Grammy nominee (Best Solo Performance in 1998 and Best Arrangement for Big Band in 2000), Liebman is a Renaissance man in contemporary music. He boasts three CDs under his own name, and has appeared on approximately 350 recordings as a session player, sideman, composer, co-producer or arranger. He has played with Miles Davis, Elvin

Jones, Chick Corea, John McLaughlin and McCoy Tyner. He has penned books and recorded instructional DVDs. He is a leader in styles ranging from classical to rock to free jazz. He founded the International Association of Schools of Jazz and was inducted into the International Association of Jazz Educators Hall of Fame in 2000. Jazz Journalist honored him with its Best Soprano Saxophone Award in 2007. He currently serves on the Board of Advisers for Jazz Improv Magazine, the Chet Baker Foundation, the Pennsylvania Regional Jazz Coalition, American Jazz Venue and is presently Artist in Residence at the Manhattan School of Music in New York. David Liebman visits Portland Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. (an hour earlier than previously published) at One Longfellow Square (corner of Congress and State). Call 761-1757. Portland Jazz Orchestra Big-band jazz is featured the following night at the same venue. The band is the Portland Jazz Orchestra, led by Chris Oberholtzer, the University of Southern Maine School of Music’s top jazz professor. Although not one of the official USM ensembles, PJO includes a number of artists connected to the school plus other music educators: The PJO is entirely made up of professional musicians, many of whom are both performers and teachers in New England. Started in 2004, the PJO is an 18-piece jazz ensemble that performs a variety of traditional and contemporary big band literature. The PJO frequently plays pieces written by its own members – such as Craig Skeffington, Willie Johnson, Chris Humphrey and Terry White – in addition to literature composed by a variety of jazz artists that include Tom Kubis, Matt Harris, Bob Mintzer, Bill Holman and Maria Schneider. The PJO also performs classic works from the big band libraries of the Count Basie Orchestra, Woody Herman Orchestra and the Stan Kenton Orchestra. One Longfellow Square (corner of Congress and State in Portland), presents the Portland Jazz Orchestra at 8 p.m. Oct. 11. Call 761-1757.

Job opportunities abound for seniors At one point in the 2008 Oscar-nominated film “Frost/Nixon,” former President Richard Nixon, played by Frank Langella, says, “Retired people are the most bored people in the world.” While some retirees might scoff at that remark, others no doubt agree there’s an element of truth to it. Perhaps boredom is one reason many seniors continue to work past retirement

age. According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), 47 percent of male seniors and 34 percent of female seniors were employed in 2007. That those figures were from 2007 is significant, as it indicates this was before the economic downturn of 2008-09, a consequence of which was more seniors returning to the workforce. For many seniors, though, work-

ing isn’t simply a means to earn money. In fact, seniors who continued working past the age of 70 earned an average of just $20,000 in 2007. Seniors also tend to work to have something to do. For seniors looking to do just that, there are a host of employment or even volunteer opportunities that can help seniors stay busy and possibly put a little extra money in their pockets.

• Local park service. Many local park services hire seniors to help keep the parks clean. These are often seasonal opportunities, making them ideal for seniors who live in different cities depending on the seasons.

• Golf course. Golf courses are other seasonal businesses, at least in much of the country, that also boast lots of part-time opportunities

What’s more, consultants often work on their own schedule, an ideal situation for seniors with a passion for business but an equal passion for the positives of retirement. • Library. Libraries might not be as popular as they once were, but many are still going strong, and some even use volunteers and part-time employees to keep their operations running smoothly. Many libraries prefer hiring seniors thanks to their reliability and good attitude.

For example, golf courses need rangers, who ensure all golfers play by the rules and respect the course, and even maintenance staff, who do everything from cut the grass to maintaining gardens. These can also pull double duty, providing seniors with daily exercise to help them stay healthy. • Volunteer. Many programs that help indigent citizens get by every day welcome seniors as volunteers. Meal delivery services and other programs that cater to the sick are often in need of a helping hand. • School systems. Local school districts also have volunteer opportunities that can be ideal for seniors. Positions such as crossing guard or even helping out with the local athletic teams don’t require much of a commitment and can be rewarding and fun for seniors. • Consultant work. Seniors who miss the thrill of business don’t have to give it up completely simply because they’re retired. Many seniors earn a handsome

FEMA from page 1

Maine, who asked FEMA officials in a Sept. 13 letter revisit the maps for Cumberland and York counties, applauded the agency’s decision. “It is clear that FEMA is listening to the concerns of Maine’s communities and residents,” Collins said in a press release. While the new maps may work well for sandy coastlines, Collins, a ranking member of the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee, which oversees FEMA, said Maine’s rugged coast with its many inlets, ledges, bays and islands make floodplain mapping more complicated. “This latest announcement from FEMA means affected coastal communities in Maine will have the time to continue working closely with FEMA to produce accurate flood maps for the region,” she said. Communities hired Robert Gerber of

Westbrook-based Sebago Technics to review the maps and to supply more detailed information to the agency. Gerber said his analysis took into account the effects of islands, ledges and inlets, and also used a lower wind velocity, to recalculate the flood maps. He said he wasn’t sure his findings would affect the proposed maps when he was originally hired by the city of Portland. But he was wrong. “It changed the game,” Gerber said. Portland City Hall spokeswoman Nicole Clegg said the city spent $10,000 on its independent review. That compelled FEMA to adjust its flood map for the Commercial Street area in Portland, which would have made waterfront development extremely difficult, if not impossible. South Portland Planning and Development Director Tex Haeuser said the city only paid $5,500 for its review, since it was able to use portions of Portland’s study that focused on the Fore River.

land, Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough attended a Sept. 29 forum about the flood map changes, Haeuser said. Haeuser said he is pleased FEMA will revise the maps through a more collaborative process, rather than through expensive appeals. “It would have been unfair to make residents prepare appeals on maps FEMA knows in some cases are inaccurate,” he said. In Cape Elizabeth, Town Manager Michael McGovern said the Town Council has spent $8,000 in unbudgeted funds for the review. “Bob Gerber’s expertise truly made the difference in having FEMA reach the point it did today,” McGovern said in an Oct. 1 letter informing the Town Council of FEMA’s decision to pull the maps. “One resident in Cape Elizabeth wrote to me this week indicating their flood insurance would rise from about $1,000 per year to $25,000 per year,” McGovern said of the potential impact the proposed maps would have had. Harpswell Town Administrator Kristi Eiane said Gerber’s review cost the town

Scarborough from page 1 this spring in utility tunnels beneath the school, assuring the councilors that the levels in the classroom have tested in normal ranges. “The state does recommend that we replace the windows as a whole, or abate the glazing so we can get fresh air into those rooms,” Jepson said, referring to a recent inspection by the state Bureau of General Services. He estimated replacing only one set of windows per classroom would cost approximately $150,000, or just over $5,300 per window. After the meeting, Jepson said the price includes removal of the existing windows, which must be done by a licensed professional because of the asbestos, and air quality testing of the classrooms. In addition, the new windows are large and must be custombuilt, he said. Dexter said students and teachers were feeling sick from the lack of fresh air and that students did not seem as focused as they usually are this time of year. “Employees are going home with headaches. I find this to be a daily occurrence,” she said, adding that the air quality has affected a number of staff members, not just one or two. “Tests show it’s safe and I believe it is,” Dexter said, “but the air has become stifling and stagnant.” The School Board was expected to vote on a bid to replace the 28 windows on Thursday. Councilors agreed they would hold a special meeting as quickly as possible to vote on funding the project. Town Manager Tom Hall said after the meeting that the funding could come from cuts in the existing town and/or school operating budgets, undesignated fund balance, or be reallocated from a previously approved capital improvement project. “Depending on the route taken for financing, it may require a budget amendment, which requires two readings,” Hall said, adding that he would be working

nearly $18,000, but it proved to be a worthwhile investment. “For the moment, I think there is a good deal of relief from property owners in Harpswell that the map has been pulled,” Eiane said. Gerber said his model produced the greatest disparity in Harpswell, which has about 200 miles of coastline, with small islands and narrow bays. FEMA said in a press release it is switching to a new program called Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning, but has not released details. Each community must sign a project charter, which has not yet been drafted, to participate in the review. “I think it remains to be seen how we move forward in this new approach and what commitment FEMA is looking for from the town,” Eiane said. Although news that FEMA would work closely with communities to draft the new maps was welcome, South Portland City Manager Jim Gailey said changes are still on the horizon for some waterfront properties. “The process is not dead by any means,” he said.

closely with the school on these options in the coming days. Route 1 zoning change The council also heard from Harvey Rosenfeld, Scarborough Economic Development Corp. executive director, about the organization’s request to change zoning of a six-acre parcel that’s for sale on Route 1 across from the Maine Medical Center campus. The land is owned by the Maine Department of Transportation and is in the Residential 2 zone. Rosenfeld recommended rezoning the area to a BO-R zone, which would encourage bio-medical and technology development. “We felt we should be proactive so we’re ready when a quality developer comes in,” Rosenfeld said, adding that several developers have already expressed interest in the property. Several councilors were concerned about the residential neighborhood behind the property. “This is a huge jump from R2 to BO-R in a fairly quiet neighborhood,” Councilor Karen D’Andrea said. “We need to take into account that whole neighborhood.” Councilor Ronald Ahlquist suggested the Comprehensive Plan Implementation Committee review the change concurrently with the Planning Board. The first reading of the zoning change was passed 5-1, with D’Andrea opposed. The change will now go to the Planning Board for a review and public hearing, as well as to CPIC for review and recommendation. In other business, the council approved 5-1, with D’Andrea opposed, a first reading of a proposed Secondhand Dealer Ordinance, which would regulate any business, including pawn shops and antique dealers, that purchases personal items with intent to resell those items, and require those businesses to obtain a license to operate.

Morrison said municipalities should do everything they can to not raise property taxes to make up for the decrease in state funding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we have to cut our budgets, the city should do the same and not automatically flip it into property taxes,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Although not convinced the state is overspending, Morrison said he believes efficiencies could be found by streamlining some services, especially by combining departments and merging some of the many agriculture commissions that exist. He said he believes the income tax base could be expanded by â&#x20AC;&#x153;reasonableâ&#x20AC;? investments in research and development, especially in the bio-technology field, that are â&#x20AC;&#x153;mindfulâ&#x20AC;? of the current economy. That investment could create jobs and keep college graduates in the state, he said. Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

system needs to be reformed to fit within federal guidelines. Volk said the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pension system needs to be fully funded from this point on and that it must be fully reformed. She cited a recently passed pension reform package in Utah and said she has e-mailed the senator who drafted the bill to see how he went about it. Volk said she would not support another gay marriage bill because she does not believe it is right to begin redefining a word based on 2010 norms. She said, however, that she would support a bill that allows a new term to be

Volk said her top issue is creating a business-friendly environment in Maine and cited the work of the Scarborough Economic Development Corp. as a model. She said she would like to see a Maine version of the independent economic development corporation and that she would work to reduce taxes, health-care costs and regulations on businesses, and streamline permitting and energy costs.

Awareness from page 1 breast cancer,” said Portland firefighter Jason Brooks, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 740. While the campaign, dubbed “Real Firefighters Wear Pink,” is intended to call attention to breast cancer, firefighter Rick Lee said it’s more than that to the South Portland Fire Department. Over the last 15 years, 15 South Portland firefighters have been diagnosed with cancer, including skin and esophageal cancers. Most recently, firefighter Steven Wayworth lost his battle with brain cancer in May. “We’ve just had all different types,” Lee said. “So, we figured we would jump in on this and raise awareness.” Lee said research suggests that firefighters are more likely to get certain forms of cancer, including prostate and kidney cancer. Recently, the Legislature enacted a bill to tip the scales in favor of firefighters diagnosed with cancer who are battling insurance companies, Lee said. The cancer presumptive law gives

insurance companies the responsibility to prove the cause of cancer was not work-related, rather than other way around. Lee said there is one South Portland firefighter engaged in that process. That firefighter was diagnosed with kidney cancer, the two major causes of which are smoking and fighting fires, he said. “He never smoked a day in his life,” Lee said. Lee said it was not difficult to convince

South Portland from page 1 opposed the ordinance, said the city is over-regulating its residents, who can legally carry loaded firearms in public. To highlight the need for the ordinance, Googins said he received a call two weeks ago, while he was at a council meeting promoting the new ordinance, about young men in masks and camouflage with guns. “It was, I believe, some war games going on with air soft guns,” he said. Still, Blake did not believe the volume of calls justified the ordinance.”We’re creating a regulation for a problem that doesn’t exist,” he said.


his comrades to wear pink in support of the cause. “They pretty much jumped at the chance,” he said. “Not that pink was their first choice of colors. But everyone agreed it would make us stand out and make people ask questions.” In addition to raising cancer awareness, firefighters will be selling pink T-shirts for $10 each to raise money for cancer charities, including the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition and the Maine Cancer

Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis, however, said the “potential for danger” is enough for her to support the ordinance. “It will only take one tragedy for us to wonder about this,” she said. A handful of residents, meanwhile, opposed the ordinance. John Kierstead took Councilor Linda Boudreau to task for previous comments about fearing that police would accidentally shoot a child with a pellet gun, calling it “disingenuous.” Kierstead also criticized Boudreau’s reading of safety instructions for air soft guns pulled from a manufacturer’s website, which echoed the city’s proposed ordinance.

“I hate to tell you, but those (instructions) are for morons,” he said. “It’s never a good idea to put a gun in your mouth and pull the trigger to see if it’s loaded.” Although he believed the ordinance would pass, James Roy said the discussion has prompted him and his neighbors to take more interest in city politics. “If anything, this ordinance has woken up a lot of people that maybe we should pay attention to what’s going on at City Hall,” Roy said.
