High stakes for high school South Portland voters asked to borrow $41.5M By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — Voters on Nov. 2 will be asked to borrow $41.5 million to renovate and expand South Portland High School. The bond is being sought because there is no state funding to address facility problems that have earned the school a warning from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges that its accreditation is in jeopardy. NEASC noted the general structural decay of the school, in addition to several specific issues, including noncompliance with building and handicapped accessibility codes’ poor heating and air ventilation systems; outdated electrical systems; leaky roofs and toilets, and a lack of hot water in the restrooms. Superintendent of Schools Suzanne Godin has said the school will not lose its accreditation, as long as it continues to pay dues to membership-based NEASC. But the school could be placed on probation, she said. In addition to the $41.5 million bond, taxpayers will also have to pay interest estimated

at $19.6 million, bringing the total borrowing cost up to $61.1 million. In 2007, voters rejected a $56 million bond (a figure that didn’t include interest) by a 3-1 margin. According to projections provided by City Finance Director Greg L’Heureux, the total, 20-year cost of the bond for owners of a home assessed at $200,000 would be more than $3,600. The cost to owners of a $400,000 home would be

nearly $7,300, while the cost for owners of a $150,000 home would be more than $2,700. Homeowners would pay the most in 2015, when the project would cost those taxpayers $213, $426 and $164, respectively. Those figures, L’Heureux said, are for the high school project alone and do not account for increases in city and school operating budgets, or changes in the city’s valuation. Bond boosters argue that

repairs are needed not only to protect accreditation, but to improve the health and safety of students. Opponents, however, believe the plan is excessive and could be done for less money. A political action committee, RenewSPHS, has been working over the last few weeks to convince voters to support the bond. RenewSPHS spokesman Jeff See page 30

By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — The School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to hire Kenneth Murphy of Yarmouth as interim superintendent of schools. Murphy retired as Yarmouth’s superintendent in June 2009 after serving 25 years in the school district, 18 as school chief. He will begin his job as interim superintendent on Jan. 1, 2011, and will serve through June. Superintendent Alan Hawkins announced his retirement in August and will retire effective Dec. 31. He will remain a consultant through April 15, 2011, to assist in the transition to a new superintendent and to continue to work on curriculum, instruction and assessment. “The Cape Elizabeth district is similar to Yarmouth in many ways and I know those systems pretty well,” Murphy said Wednesday morning. “I have always admired the (Cape) school system and am looking forward to working with Alan.” Murphy said the position appealed to him after taking a See page 30

Building sickness: Teacher left Scarborough school to protect her health By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — Before she began teaching at Wentworth Intermediate School in 2006, Meredith Doyle had a mild allergy to cats and no other significant health problems. Four years later, Doyle, 30, of Portland, said she has suffered from chronic post-nasal drip, which has caused other health issues, and is now extremely sensitive to any airborne irritants. Index Arts Calendar.................25 Classifieds......................33 Community Calendar......28 Great Outdoors...............18

She has seen a range of specialists – pulmonary, acupuncture, allergy – who have confirmed her suspicion that her exposure to allergens like mold while she taught at Wentworth have caused serious breathing issues. “The first year, I had a lot of prolonged colds,” Doyle said. “I didn’t really connect it. I connected it to germs, to the kids, to the new environment. The next year, it got a little worse, and

the third year I really noticed it was worse.” D oy l e , w h o p r ev i o u s l y worked in old buildings in Jackson Hole, Wyo., and Bar Harbor, said eventually she connected the visible mold growing on her classroom’s water-damaged carpet with her breathing problems, and reported it to school administrators.

Secondhand dealers may need local permits By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — Anyone buying used personal items to sell may soon have to obtain a permit from the town if a new secondhand dealer’s ordinance is approved by the Town Council. The ordinance, which mirrors state law, would require every business that purchases used personal property with the intent to sell to document the seller’s information: name, address, date of birth and a description of the property. They would also have to see the seller’s license or another form of identification before purchasing the item. The only difference between the ordinance and state law is the requirement that secondhand dealers obtain a town permit. The cost of that permit has not been set.

“It really gives us the benefit of being aware of who’s operating in the town,” Police Department Capt. David Grover said. Grover said the local ordinance, which is based on others in Maine, would help the department deal with those who break the law. He said a backlog in the district attorney’s office often prevents these kinds of cases from being prosecuted. He said it will also allow officers to check in with permitted businesses when items are stolen to see if they turn up in local shops. Pawn shops are already required to obtain a town permit. Pawn brokers do not purchase items outright, but give the item’s owner a loan and keep the item on hand for at least 30 days; the owner can buy the item back, generally after paying interest, or allow the pawn shop to sell it. Grover said thieves do not generally pawn items, and instead seek to sell

them outright. The new ordinance would require businesses such as Lots for Tots, a secondhand children’s store, and Bull Moose Music, which buys and resells used CDs, DVDs, video games and books, to also obtain permits. “With this ordinance, we feel Scar­ borough has made a valiant attempt to balance the needs of business owners and customers with the needs of law enforcement,” Bull Moose owner Brett Wickard said. Wickard said the store’s computer-

Red Robin restaurant planning new location in Scarborough SCARBOROUGH — The Planning Board has asked for minor changes to a site plan presented Tuesday night by the Colorado-based Red Robin Gourmet Burgers chain for a restaurant planned across from Walmart on Gallery Boulevard. Planning Director Dan Bacon said the engineering changes would likely be pre-

sented to the Planning Board at its next meeting on Nov. 1. He said if the company makes the requested changes, the board will likely approve the site plan. The restaurant would be built between Lowe’s and Texas Roadhouse. The only other Red Robin in Maine is on Stephen King Drive in Augusta.

Cape council approves $40K Fort Williams plan update, study By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — The Town Council unanimously approved spending up to $40,000 to update the Fort Williams Master Plan and to develop a study of the park. The funds will be appropriated from the general fund undesignated surplus for the Fort Williams Capital Fund. Councilors agreed Wednesday that a conceptual study that would identify the parameters, limitations and range of possibilities for revenue-generating ideas at the park would be necessary before a business plan is developed. Town Manager Michael McGovern said the master plan update is estimated to cost about $25,000 and the study could cost about $15,000.

related to the park. She said while the advisory commission is an organization that can make recommendations, the Town Council is the policy-making body and will ultimately approve the plan. McGovern said the master plan update and study will be developed concurrently and that the council will receive regular updates from the advisory commission. The next council workshop will be Monday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m.

The master plan update will address maintenance needs and the upkeep of the park. The so-called “scoping” study will outline possible revenue-generating ideas and how to address parking issues, sewer and water needs, land regulations, setback limitations, alcohol restrictions and the logistics of planning, restocking provisions or servicing an event. Council Chairwoman Anne SwiftKayatta said the Fort Williams Advisory Commission has already created a list of ideas based on policies and parameters

He graduated from the University of Georgia, is married and has three children. Moore is a member of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, volunteer and board member for the Center for Grieving Children and a Thomas Memorial Library trustee. Moore For nearly 20 years Moore worked for Arthur Andersen, Lehman Bros. and Pequot Capital Management as an investment analyst and business strategist. He said his skills will further diversify the expertise of the board. He said he would have supported School Board member Linda Winker, but felt compelled to run after Winker decided not to seek re-election. In addition to Winker, board Chairwoman Rebecca Millett is not seeking another term. Kimberly Monaghan-Derrig is the only candidate on the Nov. 2 ballot. Frederic K.

South Portland City Council: 4 candidates seek 2 at-large seats By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — There are four candidates competing for two at-large seats on the City Council. Incumbent Tom Blake is finishing his first, three-year term on the council and is seeking re-election. Councilor Linda Boudreau cannot run because of term limits. Residents Albert DiMillo, Alan Livingston and Donald Russell are all seeking to either unseat Blake or replace Boudreau. The candidates discussed the budget, education, the city’s foray into the power business, the need for a new City Hall, the ongoing review of the Comprehensive Plan and whether South Portland should have a popularly elected mayor.

Thomas E. Blake Blake, 59, is a retired firefighter who now manages properties and is an adjunct faculty member at Southern Maine Community College. He and his wife, Dee, have four grown children and eight grandchildren. Blake, a lifelong city resident, said he is Blake seeking re-election to continue working on initiatives that began during his first term, including green energy and sustainability initiatives, strategic planning and bridging the gap between City Hall and the School Department. Blake said he supports the $41.5 million high school bond, but called it as a “huge sum of money” that will be a “tremendous

burden” on taxpayers. Blake said he supports creating a local tax-relief program for senior citizens. “The problem isn’t going to go away,” he said of school’s condition. “It will only get worse.” Blake said he would like to produce budgets that do not increase the property tax rate, but said cuts in state revenue sharing and education funding will make that difficult. The city needs to be more creative in generating revenue, he said, including pressing state leaders to allow a hotel tax and a local-option sales tax. The city should, once again, increase oil tanker inspection fees, he said. City and school departments must also increase efforts to secure grants, he said, and consider instituting pay-to-play sports and establishing community gardens with user fees. Blake said he doesn’t support buying 100 Waterman Drive for a new City Hall, because there are other priorities, like the high school, middle school consolidation and a new Public Works and Transportation facility. If the middle schools consolidate, he said he would like to house all city and school offices at Mahoney Middle School. Blake said he believes residents – not councilors – should elect their mayor, but the roles and the duties of the position should not change. He said he also believes the city should pursue proposals to buy electricity at wholesale prices and build a natural gas-fired power plant for the semiconductor industries. The city should also take a more regional

approach to its Comprehensive Plan, he said, and emphasize sustainable principals.

Albert A. DiMillo Jr. DiMillo, 56, is a retired accountant and corporate tax director with 30 years of financial experience. He and his wife, Linda, have lived in the city for four years and has an adult son and daughter. DiMillo has never run for public office, but advised the successful statewide effort in June to repeal the Legislature’s tax reform plan. DiMillo DiMillo said he is running for council to reduce property taxes. He said he would do that by controlling school spending, which consumes two-thirds of the city budget. He said councilors and School Board members lack financial experience. DiMillo said he would vote against the school budget until the district addresses what he says are its annual budget errors. He said the school budget has produced surpluses in each of the last six years. He said he would also call for the schools to cut $1 million in middle school administration costs and technology investments. DiMillo said he doesn’t support the $41.5 million high school bond, because the plan would result in a 50 percent expansion of the building; contains too much space per student; rebuilds relatively new areas, like the cafeteria, and contains so-called “team rooms” for faculty. Meanwhile, he said he would push for

Comment on this story at:

“zero-based budgeting” – where departments must annually justify every dollar – and creation of a finance committee that would scrutinize every major purchase. “There is generally a total lack of budgets and cost-benefit analysis,” he said. “Nobody on the City Council has the ability to do that analysis.” DiMillo contends councilors are “illegally” receiving taxpayer-financed health care. If elected, he said, he will not accept his $3,000 stipend and will pay for his own health care. He said he would tighten term limits for councilors, capping service at six consecutive years, requiring at least four years off and instituting a 12-year lifetime cap. DiMillo said he doesn’t support the city getting into the utility business and opposes a new loan program for small business. He also doesn’t support an elected mayor. DiMillo said the city’s Comprehensive Plan should increase the minimum lot size for new homes and focus on high-end housing for “empty-nesters,” who would pay property taxes, but not use the schools.

October 15, 2010 from previous page Livingston said he is running for the council to “build bridges” between the two elected bodies and to explore consolidating some city and school administrative positions and services, such as transportation, to save money. Livingston Livingston said the city has done a good job managing its budget, but the school budget needs to be more transparent. He said he is concerned about property taxes, but would not identify any potential budget cuts to keep taxes low amid declining revenue. Livingston said he supports the $41.5 million high school bond. He said the city has been creative in trying to limit the projected tax impact, and he hopes parts of the new school, including a proposed 100seat lecture hall, will be used by the whole community. “It gives the city something to be proud of,” he said. Livingston said “something new needs to be done” at City Hall, but is concerned about tax increases. He said 100 Waterman Drive is a “great deal” and the city should investigate ways to leverage its current property to pay for it. “That would be less expensive than building new,” he said. “I think it’s something we should look at.” The city should make preservation of open space a priority in its Comprehensive Plan, he said, including pursuing acquisition of 71 acres of land on Highland Avenue owned by Portland Pipe Line, although the property is not for sale. Economic development should be concentrated on the Main Street corridor, he said, and the city should pursue an EastWest connector from Highland Avenue to Main Street. Livingston said he supports the city getting involved in the utility business, but opposes having a popularly elected mayor. He said he would also like to see a tax cap for seniors.

Donald M. Russell III Russell, 50, is founder of South Portlandbased BrandME Marketing and is a past president of the Waterfront Market Association. He and his wife, Sue, a Realtor and member of the Zoning Board of Appeals, live on Meeting House Hill. They have two children in public schools. Russell, who is finishing his first threeyear term on the PlanRussell ning Board, said he would bring a unique perspective to the council, noting he would be the only councilor with school-age children. “I’m right in the fox holes talking to teachers and parents,” he said. “But I’m not someone who is in lock step.” Russell said he would try to increase collaboration between the city and schools, including consolidating services. Potential areas include facilities, grounds maintenance and transportation, he said. Meanwhile, Russell said a committee made up of councilors and qualified residents should be formed to study major

expenditures, such as the high school bond and a new Public Works facility, and to issue recommendations to the council about the merits and timing of financing. If service cuts are needed to balance the budget, Russell said he would separate critical needs, such as police and fire, from secondary needs, like public transportation. The city should get more creative with generating revenue, he said, and should lobby legislators to allow the city to levy its own meals, lodging and other local-option taxes. “We could have more leadership and vision,” Russell said. “I hope to bring that to the party.” The city should not consider a new City Hall until more important issues, like the high school, middle school consolidation and a Public Works facility, are resolved, he said.

Southern 5 The city’s new Comprehensive Plan should have a “formidable” open space plan that maintains public access, he said. Development in the Maine Mall area should not be confined to retail stores, but should also include residential developments, he said. Breathing life back into Knightville-Mill Creek should also be a priority, he said. “We need to reinvent downtown,” Russell said. “It’s just inching along.” Russell said he supports the $41.5 million high school bond, because failure to address the issues now will damage the city’s reputation and image. “(The) really real dangers and damages of another losing vote far outweigh the imperfections and missteps of this process and plan,” he said.

Senate District 6: Tea party Republican takes on Democratic leader By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — A tea party organizer is challenging the Senate majority leader in state Senate District 6, which includes Gorham, part of Westbrook and the portion of Scarborough west of Route 1 and the Scarborough Marsh. Republican Matt Mattingly, a Gorham town councilor and founder of the District 6 Tea Party, brings an economic focus to the race, while incumbent Sen. Philip Bartlett, also of Gorham, emphasizes his experience as a three-term senator.

grappled with a difficult fiscal environment, but has managed to shrink the size of the state budget to the smallest since 1999, adjusted for inflation. “We have successBartlett fully reduced the size of Maine’s budget while protecting core services that the Maine people rely on,” he said.

Bartlett, 34, was first elected to the Senate in 2004. He grew up in Gorham and attended Tufts University and Harvard Law School. He is an attorney with Scaccia, Lenkowski, Aranson & Bartlett.

Bartlett said he takes the constitutional mandate to meet the state’s pension obligations seriously and would not seek to amend it. He said bringing together policymakers and stakeholders to forge a workable solution to the pension crisis that recognizes the state’s obligations and the difficult economy is his goal.

Bartlett said that in his six years in the Legislature, the state has continually

in the state’s marriage laws and would continue to support same-sex marriage in the future.

He said he would continue to work on building consensus on a wide range of issues, including investments in Maine’s workforce and development of a state energy policy. Bartlett said he worked to successfully expand the Circuit Breaker program, which provided tax relief to Maine families, and to bring the Pine Tree Zones to southern Maine.

He said he would support continuing consolidation on the administrative side of the school systems, as well as cutting health-care expenses to “put immediate cash back in the pockets of our teachers and reduce the tax burden.” He said in the classroom, we need to reward innovation and success, and remove those whose hearts aren’t in educating students.

Matthew Mattingly

Mattingly said the state’s pension crisis began 30 years ago and that the controlling leadership in Augusta is now trying to convince people that those who helped create the crisis can be trusted to solve it. He said looking to early retirement with benefits concessions and edging up the eligibility age over time, as well as enacting the recommendations in the Envision Maine report, are possible solutions.

Mattingly, 42, is the owner and managing partner of the PineCrest Inn and 91 South, a food and wine club. Mattingly is married and has two children. He is the chairman of the Gorham Capital Improvements Committee, a member of the Gorham Ordinance Committee, a director Mattingly of the Maine Innkeepers Association and the founder of the District 6 Tea Party, which is affiliated with the conservative group Tea Party Patriots. Mattingly cited Gorham’s four-year zero percent tax increase as a model for responsible spending and smart budgeting, something, he said, the state has failed to do. He said the state “must look at a complete structural overhaul in the physical way in which we run government,” adding that government needs to stop thinking it can create jobs. “Businesses create jobs, government spends money. The two philosophies are not compatible with each other,” he said.

Mattingly said the debate over gay marriage is confusing because both the state and the churches are using the same language to mean different things. He said the state should deal with the contractual obligations of marriage, while the church deals with spiritual obligations. “People have the right to take care of each other and if we need to create a unique solution for people to do so, then we should do that,” he said.

Mattingly said, as a business owner, signing paychecks is the single most important thing he does each week, and that Maine needs more people signing paychecks, more people cashing paychecks, and fewer people cashing welfare checks. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or

Senate District 7: Palmieri hopes to unseat Bliss By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — Incumbent Democratic state Sen. Lawrence Bliss is seeking re-election in District 7 against Republican challenger Joseph Palmieri, a small business owner and sports radio host. District 7 includes South Portland, Cape Elizabeth and the portion of Scarborough east of Route 1 and the Scarborough Marsh. Both candidates said they believe the state needs to streamline permitting and regulatory processes to lure new businesses to the state. But Bliss said more businesses would come to Maine if the state did a better job of investing in roads, bridges and education. Palmieri said the state should consider more tax incentives for new businesses, reducing utility costs by purchasing power from the Canadian grid and offering a-la-carte insurance policies. Bliss said he supports gay marriage, while Palmieri said he believes the state should get out of the marriage business and offer domestic partnership licenses to gay and straight couples alike. Bliss said he is open to increasing and expanding the sales tax, while Palmieri is not. Lawrence Bliss Bliss, 63, lives on Cottage Road with his three children and partner, Noland McCoy, a consultant for low-income housing. Bliss worked at the University of Southern Maine as the director of career services for 20 years before being laid off. He is now a full-time legislator.

“We have to put a lot of ideas on the table and see what fits,” he said.

Bliss is finishing his first term in the state Senate, where he chaired the Judiciary Committee and sat on the Taxation and Ethics Committee. He also served four terms as a state representative.

Bliss said he supports efforts to increase wind farms, but thinks the state should expand its renewable energy portfolio by including tidal and geothermal energy.


Bliss said he is seeking re-election, among other reasons, to pass tax reform. He supported the Legislature’s last reform package, which would have lowered the income tax for top earners and expand items covered by the sales tax. But that reform package was repealed by voters. Bliss said he doesn’t believe there are many more opportunities to consolidate state government. He would offer tax relief to residents by expanding sales taxes on tourism related items. He also supports a local-option sales tax, provided it’s implemented on a regional, not municipal, level. He said the state needs to do a better job investing in infrastructure and education, but finding funding will not be easy. He suggested adding one cent to the sales tax, with a sunset provision. “My guess is most people in Maine would be willing to accept a one-cent sales tax increase if they knew it would be for one year or two years,” he said. The state should also consider increasing the real estate transfer tax, Bliss said, and investigate whether the real estate industry’s fears about adverse impact on the housing market are justified.

The state also needs to address air pollution that comes in from other states, he said, and address other environmental issues, like protecting the oceans, beaches and marshes. Joseph Palmieri Palmieri, 53, lives on Jennies Court with his two grown children and wife, Cheryl, a Portland public school teacher. He has owned Chicago Dogs in Scarborough for 2½ years and is a co-host of a morning sports radio show on WJAB. Palmieri said the Palmieri state needs to attract new businesses by offering tax incentives and lower utility and insurance costs. He said electrical rates could be cut by 30 percent by expanding distribution of natural gas, with pipelines along Interstate 95, and purchasing electricity from the Canadian power grid. Insurance costs could be lowered, he said, through an a-la-carte approach that offer a base policy for wellness checks and physicals, while more coverage could be added on. “Why is it that a nun working in a Catholic school that offers insurance needs a policy that requires prenatal care?” he

Comment on this story at:

asked. “This is how absurd the situation is in this state.”

Palmieri said the state’s budget problems could be solved by increasing the number of taxpayers. He did not support the last reform package, because expanding the sales tax, he said, mostly affects low-income families.

Instead, he supports implementation of a one-day, tax holiday to spur consumer spending, whether its “a house, a car or a hamburger.” Municipalities would experience new annual revenue, he said, from subsequent excise taxes from automobiles and local businesses would benefit from ongoing home-improvement projects.

“That’s not just a one-year thing,” he said.

Although he doesn’t support a localoption sales tax, Palmieri said he would favor allowing municipalities to keep a penny of the existing sales tax.

To reduce state spending, Palmieri advocates a residency requirement to receive welfare benefits and instituting a lifetime cap on those benefits.

He would also reduce the size of the Legislature by “at least 15 percent” and institute a cap on the amount of money a school district could spend on administration.

“We can’t continue on this path,” he said. “Clearly, the traditional ways of doing business aren’t working.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

South Portland School Board: 3 seats go uncontested By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — There are three School Board seats to fill on the Nov. 2 ballot. All of them are uncontested. Board Chairman Richard L. Carter, of Thompson Street, is running unopposed in District 1, which represents the east end, and Sarah Goldberg, of Pine Street, is the only candidate in District 2, the Knightville-Mill Creek area. Although no candidate’s name is on the ballot for District 3, the Pleasantdale area, Boothby Avenue resident Richard Matthews has launched a formal write-in campaign for the seat. Matthews, a 44-year-old, stay-at-home dad and lifelong city resident, said he decided to seek office so the city wouldn’t

be forced to appoint someone to the position. Jerald McQueeney, who was appointed in 2009 to replace Michael Eastman, who died, chose not run this year in District 3. Questions were raised about the process for choosing Eastman’s successor, when the school superintendent, who serves at the board’s pleasure, played a central role in McQueeney’s appointment, which was approved without discussion by the City Council. “I wasn’t sure who they were going to put in there,” Matthews said, emphasizing his respect for McQueeney and Eastman. “I wanted to make sure we have a strong voice in our community.” Matthews, who has two children in public schools, is the co-president of the

He is also an active member of the RenewSPHS political action committee that is promoting the $41.5 million high school bond on the November ballot. “I hope my ideas and opinions strengthen the School Board,” he said. Since Matthews has officially declared his candidacy, City Clerk Sue Mooney said voters only have to write in minimal information, such as his last name, to vote for him.

After conducting surveillance and a brief investigation, Webster said police pulled over a creamcolored Hyundai ElRobert Brown antra being operated by the suspected traffickers, a mother and her son from Massachusetts, on Western Avenue near the Portland line and arrested them.

Mattie Brown, 60, of Randolph, Mass., was arrested on charges of aggravated trafficking in heroin and trafficking in cocaine. Her son, Robert Brown, 39, of Massachusetts, was arrested on a charge of refusing to submit to arrest or detention. Robert Brown posted bail on Sunday and was released, Webster said. Mattie Brown posted bail on Tuesday. Webster said police believe that other people had been staying in the hotel room and the investigation is continuing.

‘Wake up, South Portland’ No one ever bought a house based on the quality of the garbage collection. Though most would agree that municipal services such as trash collection, Fire Department responsiveness, adequate police coverage are all essential, when considering a home purchase, people ask about the flagship municipal service: public schools. A community that neglects its public schools is one that has lost its perspective. Regardless of whether you have children in the school system, the quality of that system has a direct and major impact on your home value. I think it is fair to say that most people count on equity in their homes as the nest egg for retirement and financial security. South Portland homeowners must evaluate the consequences to their home value if our high school is allowed to denigrate further into a substandard municipal institution. That is, what is the impact of the increase tax burden projected as compared to the potential loss of equity? Renewal of the high school also allows the community to leverage its investment in the excellent elementary system put in place eight years ago and to continue to attract new families and businesses to the community. Wake up, South Portland: protect your No. 1 asset by voting for the school renovation project. Ellen Clancy South Portland

South Portland school cost is too high Over the past several years the citizens of South Portland have been asked to approve an expensive new high school project on a few different occasions. The people voted no every time. Since this issue is on the ballot again, the School Board must not understand why people have voted it down each time. Many have toured the school, many more know an employee or student, or attended ourselves. The majority of voters agree that an upgrade to our high school is necessary; that is not the point we disagree on. Information on the city website compares the cost of this project with similar recent projects at other schools

and shows that our planned project is average or just below. What it fails to tell voters is that all of those other projects had state or federal assistance in paying for their projects; the full cost of the proposed project is being put squarely on the shoulders of the people of South Portland. Over the payoff period for this project people in South Portland are being asked to pay $18,376 to $19,691 per person. That amount increases as high as $27,148 with interest, and even higher since it is a property tax and only property owners, not renters, will pay. I, too, believe an upgraded high school is needed, but until we have outside help my vote is and shall be no. S. Wyatt Ross South Portland

Sen. Bliss to the rescue I would like to applaud the efforts of Sen. Larry Bliss in help overcoming a major issue with the state liquor laws. After taking over ownership of The Thomas Room, now called Events on Broadway, due to a limited category of licensing available for caterers and banquet facilities, the one license that best suited our needs would not allow us to cater and serve alcoholic beverages at events we wanted to run on our own. In bringing this ruling to the attention of Sen. Bliss, he quickly looked into the ruling and agreed with us that the ruling was outdated and needed to be amended, not just for Events on Broadway, but for the many other individual banquet and events locations throughout Maine. In working closely with the Maine Restaurant Association and along with several meetings and conversations with the state Bureau of Liquor Control, legislation was adopted and became law this past spring allowing us to run up to 100 events a year without the need of being sponsored. I would like to thank Sen. Bliss for stepping up and working closely with us to overcome a state law that would have prevented us from being able to run our facility and causing undue hardship in an already tight economy.

SPHS students deserve better conditions

Teenagers learn differently today and they need to be taught differently. I know this because I teach them every day. Quality education today focuses on teaching students how to be critical consumers of information and that often requires different types and sizes of classroom space. The South Portland High School renovation plan will provide a variety of flexible spaces for students and teachers to use. Many schools today use teaming. Contrary to popular opinion, this is not a fad. Teaming has been successfully used in public education in Maine for at least twenty years. I know from personal experience that it is one of the most effective methods for high quality instruction. My previous job was at a rural Maine high school that was heavily into many different kinds of teaming. I worked for many years with an English teacher in the same room. Students repeatedly told us how much they liked this method and how much it helped them to get a better understanding of what it means to be an American. Discipline issues with two teachers in a room were practically non-existent and students found it much more difficult to “slip through the cracks.” I encourage the citizens of South Portland to become well informed about the high school renovation project and to think critically about it. Anyone who does do that will want to vote yes in November. George O. Jones Jr. South Portland

SPHS renovation? ‘So obvious’ No matter what your politics or motivations, some decisions are a big “duh-uh” (as in “that’s so obvious”). Such is the decision to vote yes to renovate South Portland High School. Why? Because the cost of doing nothing is simply too high. South Portland is the only city in Maine with a AAA bond rating. Interest rates and construction costs are the lowest they’ll ever be. Do nothing and we will pay much more for much less. The school’s accreditation is at risk and the window of opportunity to fix the problems is short. Probation status is very, very real and yes, colleges do know and do care. Do nothing and who explains to future graduates why their choices are limited because of our inaction. That brings us to the biggie. Realtors report that some buyers are delaying purchase decisions until they see the outcome of this vote. Others have already said they will sell their homes and move for the benefit of their kids. This is serious. Do nothing and our property values sink along with our bond rating. The clock has run out and we must take action if we

are to avoid serious consequences for our inaction. As the old saying goes, you can pay me now or you can pay me later, but later is going to cost you a lot more. Whether you care more about fiscal responsibility, supporting education or maintaining property values, a yes vote to renew our high school is one big “duh-uh.” Chris Trout South Portland

Support South Portland High School The time is now to support the South Portland High School. I do not want the value of our house to decrease because we have not maintained our schools. I would rather pay a tax increase than see a 5 percent to 10 percent devaluation in our property values – a much larger amount of money than the actual tax increase. People move to communities because they are strong and vibrant. Strong schools build these strong communities. Whether you have children or not, we all want to feel

Send Dell’Olio to Augusta

Scarborough voters have an exciting opportunity to elect a native son to the Legislature in District 128: Brian Dell’Olio. I have been fortunate to witness Brian’s evolution from student to School Board chairman over the last several years. As a high school student he became involved with the local TV channel and was responsible for bringing many live and recorded programs to our town. His interest in politics was stimulated from those activities. He would often ask questions of me and others following those meetings. As a high school senior, Brian ran unsuccessfully for the Board of Education. When Brian returned to Scarborough to enter business with his father, I encouraged him to once again seek public office. He ran for the board and was elected. He has been a dedicated board member and is its chairman. His outstanding leadership has flourished. Brian listens well, is thoughtful and forward thinking. He is a wonderful mediator and problem solver. His background in finance has been extremely helpful in budget preparation and reduction as well as at the negotiations table. He may not always agree with you, but he is fair and certainly listens to all sides before making a decision. He is collegial and collaborative. This is a gentleman of the highest character. Scarborough citizens can be assured that he is always honest and trustworthy. Brian Dell’Olio is a man we can be proud to call our Legislator. Please give him your vote. Jacquelyn A. Perry, member Scarborough School Board

Out with the old, in with the new

As I read all the political ads there is an overwhelming similarity with the incumbents. They all tell us how many things in the government are wrong and how much needs to be done. Well I submit to all that are reading this that what really needs to be done is, vote them out. These people created the problems and now they want you and me to believe that they are the cure. How stupid do they think we are? Also I don’t see any of the incumbents running on their voting record. Could that be because they know if you knew their record that there is no way we could vote for them. It is time for change and that change will come from voting out the old and voting in the new.

Corthell, Carlsen for Scarborough council I am writing in support of Kerry Corthell and Iver Carlsen for election to the Scarborough Town Council. I have had the opportunity to meet these two exceptional candidates and find them to be great listeners and thinkers who I believe will bring new perspectives to town government. Kerry and Iver reach out to people and ask them what they feel are issues the council should focus on. They made an effort to come to Pine Point to hear from over 30 neighbors about the problems we’ve faced over the years by a town government which has refused to listen to the people. I am convinced they will do an excellent job because of their qualities and character. I also believe it is important to remind people of the Pine Point issues. That is why former Councilor Richard Sullivan, who is running again, was so soundly defeated by the voters, in my opinion. So I ask the voters of Scarborough to “Remember Pine Point,” which was a symbol of all that was wrong with local government and replace those who were part of the problem with Corthell and Carlsen, who I believe will be part of the solution. Judy Shirk Scarborough

Don’t be deceived by S.P. High School plan Like most voters in South Portland, I agree that the high school needs to be renovated. However, the proposed plan is not a renovation; it is a wasteful, financially irresponsible 50 percent expansion. The project includes 170,129 square feet of new construction and a net increase of 104,364 square feet. At 307,192 square feet, the facility will be 300 square feet per student at its projected peak enrollment, or more than 50 percent greater than the less-than 200 square feet per student average for high schools built in Maine over the past 10 years. Don’t be confused by the $41.5 million bond amount. The total cost with interest is $70 million, or $4,000 on a home assessed for $200,000. The project includes at least $27 million in costs that are not required to fix 100 percent of the high school accreditation issues, like spending $6.7 million to replace the cafeteria built in 1997. South Portland property taxes are currently 24 percent higher than Scarborough and will increase to 33 percent higher if this project is approved. For a home assessed at $200,000, South Portland property taxes will be $832 per year greater than Scarborough or


$16,640 more over the proposed 20-year bond issue. This high tax rate will also adversely impact business development, which will increase the taxes paid by homeowners. The claim that real estate values will decrease if this plan is voted down is false; actually values will decrease if this wasteful expansion project is approved. Albert A. DiMillo Jr. South Portland

Students, homeowners need SPHS renovation South Portland High School is at risk of losing its accreditation and the city cannot delay renovations any longer; we are in the 11th hour and this is it. One reason we pay taxes is to educate our children so they can get a good job in the future. It is a waste of all taxpayers’ money if they cannot use their education to get a good job. Not only is passing the high school bond the right thing to do, but the best way to ensure that home values stop falling. Home prices will continue to fall without an accredited high school. If you don’t think this is true, review recent housing data. It’s impossible to get a good job without a college education and nearly impossible to get a college education without graduating from an accredited high school. The conversation at this late date is not about whether this is the right plan, but rather that we are about to doom a generation of South Portland students to a life with fewer options. Never in our history would a South Portland education or our home values be worth less if this does not pass. Every South Portland resident who votes no on this issue is denying a generation the right to a valuable education – a value that all other South Portland graduates have. Many Maine schools have spent too long on probation or lost accreditation. Don’t fool yourself into believing it couldn’t happen to us. Please vote yes. Erin O’Connor Jones South Portland

Return Bliss to the Senate Sen. Larry Bliss states that his legislative aims, if re-elected, will be to balance the best interests of the individuals and families he represents with promotion of business and jobs and protection of the environment. What a difficult task to coordinate all this. Often, enhancement of one set of interests can easily derail progress on another. However, Larry has shown remarkable breadth of understanding and skill for finding where our several interests come together and where action for one will also advance the interest of


the others. Consumer protection has been a prime theme of Larry’s legislative efforts during his time in office. Indeed, the Maine chapter of the National Association of Social Workers named him legislator of the year. At the same time, the Maine League of Conservation Voters gave him an environmental score card of 100 percent. And the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce gave Larry Bliss an award this year for “outstanding work in economic development for our region.” A final note. Larry Bliss sits on both the Taxation Committee and Judiciary Committee. These are prime positions within which he can continue to serve all of us both fairly and productively. Wouldn’t we be wise to keep this man in office? Dolores Broberg South Portland

South Portland needs renovated high school

I am writing in support of the South Portland High School renovation project. I recently toured the high school and I would encourage anyone who doubts the need for repair to take a tour as well. I saw cracks in the exterior walls, windows that I wouldn’t have in my home and asbestos throughout the building. I came away convinced that the annex needs to be demolished and wondering what we are paying in excess energy costs. Our schools, along with our people, are the biggest assets that our city has. People move to South Portland because of our schools. Businesses follow those people. We all benefit from good schools because they support our property values, and they instill civic pride. Our high school building no longer inspires pride. Beal Gym looks great from the basketball court and our auditorium is wonderful, but go downstairs in the gym and through the annex, where most of the classrooms are, and it’s old, outdated, dark, drafty and depressing. I have to wonder how long we can continue to offer a quality high school education at that facility. The building has seriously declined and is unsafe on many levels. One should wonder when the educational standards will decline, and with it the decline of our community. I hope the citizens of South Portland will support the renovation, and in doing so, support our children and our community. Lisa Chase South Portland

We all share responsibility for the death of Tyler Clementi By Susan Lebel Young No doubt Tyler Clementi’s college roommate thought it would be hilarious to video record then broadcast the 18-year-old promising violinist, whom he earlier outed, in an intimate gay encounter. No doubt he called it an innocent prank. Not funny. Maybe now, a hate crime. Let us be clear: This bigotry is not about sexual orientation. This bullying is not about abstract ideas like homophobia. Any action from a closed heart impacts real human beings: my cousins, your sisters, our neighbors, you and me. We remember Tyler in vigils, silent and otherwise. These are important to open our eyes and to remind us that his leap into the Hudson River holds this message for all of us who would tease, taunt or bad-mouth: Reckless behavior is reckless behavior, whether it flows between college co-eds or you and me. Tyler’s death is bigger than Tyler. We are at a crossroads of civility. What about each person’s sovereignty? Do we smile at the Muslim next door? Can we say hello to both that liberal and the tea partier down the street? Can we shake hands with the Somali refugee who runs the corner store or the Cambodian almost-citizen even when we differ? Can we do what my

father called seeing the good in each other, especially when we differ? Yes, Tyler’s jump off the George Washington Bridge puts us all in turbulent water. In our collective hearts, what are we thinking? Or are we? What are we thinking when we betray anyone on camera? We could say Tyler’s roommate’s youthful unskillful actions come merely from ignorance. We could blame the crisis on the undeveloped decision-making inability of one unstable university freshman’s brain. But that would be scapegoating. Pointing that finger toward a single misguided man would get you and me off the hook. Yet, if we turn into our own lives and into our own habits of speech, we find this inconvenient truth: We all have prejudices. And they hurt others. With recent “off the record” statements by a gubernatorial candidate about wanting to hit a reporter, we heard that echo, “Oh, I didn’t mean anything by it.” If we look around, such emotional immaturity is everywhere. It’s in me, I hate to admit. So now I am trying to look at my own places of sneaking: at how I use and/or misuse social media, at where I “only kiddingly” harbor the underlying intention to harm, at those less than kind words I send virtually and therefore

presumably impersonally, at the violence I do to another in the name of “fun.” When we reflect on what happened at Rutgers University, do we see all the encounters in which we are harsh, or talk behind someone’s back? All those times we assume the target of our scorn will never find out, because it’s only a joke anyway? This inner conscienceconversation may provide the only chance for real change. If so, then how do we mend the menace in this nation, in this world? Perhaps it is in the recesses of each heart that we heal the whole. For me, I will look deeply into my crevices of narrow-mindedness. That man I call arrogant: I’d like to show him a thing or two. That woman who has the funky hair and clunky shoes: I could never be her friend. Ouch. Where is my generous heart? That is my question, where is our collective generous heart? In that query lies my hope that the wrenching suffering over Tyler can plant decency and grow compassion in me, in us, in the United States, in the world. This is bigger than Tyler.

Beem misdiagnoses free-market ills It seems, from his recent column, that Edgar Allen Beem is gleefully pronouncing the death of capitalism by its own hands. I suggest an alternative explanation: The free market in this great nation did not fall on its own sword. Rather, it has been slowly, but steadily, strangled at the hands of a growing nanny-state government which is intent on regulating and taxing every aspect of human activity, including commerce. To say that the free market failed on its own accord would be similar to saying that an Olympic weight lifter who was shackled and chained was a weakling who couldn’t carry his own weight. Free him of his chains, and he will be able to lift much more than his own weight. Similarly, lift away the burden of an allpowerful, all-taxing government from human activity, and America could once again be the economic engine – and envy – of the world. It is no coincidence that as America has strayed farther from the Constitutional constraints on government that both freedom and prosperity have been found posted on the endangered species list. As it is busily redistributing everyone’s wealth (for our own good), government must of course first take its (increasingly large) cut off the top. This cuts deep into the very nature of human freedom, and drains the lifeblood from human commerce. A government big enough to grant you what you need is a government big enough to take away what you have, to serve its own needs first. Edward Palm Bath

Amorello, Beem on target Congratulations on the marvelous columns by Sandy Amorello and Edgar Allen Beem. Amorello’s “The case of the shrinking Saltines” manifests a fine wit and a superior power of observation, a power so wanting in kept mass media journalism, which misses such obvious happenings as (a) our revenge on largely Saudi Arabian terrorists by killing a million Iraqis, creating millions of refugees and homeless, and destroying the country, a visitation of wrath now moved to Afghanistan, where Colorado push-buttons antiseptically slaughter whole families, and (b) our “special relationship” with Israel, which is heavily responsible for Israel’s relentless dispossession of Palestinians from Palestine and thoroughgoing denial of Palestinians’ humanity. Sandy, go for Democracy Now foreign correspondent. A Beem admirer since well before his much-appreciated singular endorsement of my 2006 U.S. Senate candidacy, I celebrate his succinct dissing of corporate capitalism (“The

The meat of the matter Are you a vegetarian? Neither am I, but we probably should be, both for the good of our bodies and of our souls. In a recent newspaper column entitled “How Will the Future Judge Us?,” Princeton University philosophy professor Kwame Anthony Appiah prophesizes that posterity will look back at our penal system, our segregation of the elderly, our pollution of the environment and our industrial meat production with the same incomprehensible horror with which we regard slavery. The Universal “People who eat factory-farmed bacon or chicken rarely offer a moral justification for what they’re doing,” Appiah said. “Instead, they try not to think about it too much, shying away from stomach-turning stories about what goes on in our industrial abattoirs.” Guilty as charged. I am a carnivore. I eat nasty things like hot Edgar Allen Beem dogs and hamburgers with relish (and pulled pork with barbecue sauce). There exists a moral spectrum of meat consumption, with unrepentant meat-and-potatoes men who eat their steaks bloody and rare at one end and masked Jains, who cover their mouths and noses so they don’t accidentally breath in live insects, at the other. In between are various degrees of vegetarians, vegans, macrobioticians, fruititarians, localvores and people being fed intravenously. I like to think of myself as a compassionate carnivore. I don’t eat much red meat and rarely if ever eat such ethically tainted delicacies as milkfed veal, goose liver pate and Big Macs. Two of my three daughters are what I call qualified vegetarians.


coming collapse of capitalism”) which has put “rewards risk over responsibility and profit over production” and has become given to “creating nothing of value other than paper profits” for those gaming the system – truly an educational excursion for this economics-challenged student of public affairs.

They’ll both eat seafood and one will eat beef if it is organic and locally raised. The daughter who won’t eat meat used to go to a day-care center that occasionally fed the kiddies venison, moose and bear stew, so I guess I understand. I’ve always thought of folks who’ll eat fish but not red meat as cowardly carnivores. They’ll eat salmon, I suspect, because salmon don’t make any noise when they die. And they’ll eat tuna because it comes in cans, not out of the sea. Having watched Maine darling Linda Greenlaw haul majestic swordfish aboard her boat with pikes on “Swords,” however, I’m having second thoughts at the moment about eating swordfish. But it’s pork that gives me the most pause. Just knowing that Austin DeCoster, he of the evil eggs farms in Maine and Iowa, also owns industrial hog farms in the Midwest makes me realize that my pork chops are probably not cruelty-free. (That and the fact that I have seen pigs slaughtered. It’s not a pretty sight.) Sometimes I even think I can taste the fear in the chops. That’s why I smother them in sauerkraut. It seems pretty clear that we would all be better off, biologically and environmentally, if we just ate the grains we feed cattle instead of running it through beef critters first. Maybe burger-flavored Cheerios are the answer. I would never presume, of course, to tell anyone what to eat (just what to think), but I do hope that readers will, at the very least, feel a twinge of guilt next time they slice into a sirloin. Guilt, after all, is the driving force behind all human progress.

Arthur S. Gallant, 61: Family man, loved to entertain SOUTH PORTLAND — Arthur S. “Artie” Gallant died Oct. 6 at his home. On May 31, 1949, he was born in Portland, a son of Arthur W. Gallant and Mildred Swett. In 1968 he graduated from South Portland High School and attended a local technical institute for two years before serving in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. For more than 30 years he was employed at Quality Assurance Labs in South Portland, and obtained several certifica-

Donated lease gives new life to Portland food co-op PORTLAND — The Portland Food Cooperative has found a new home thanks to the donation of a five-year lease on an East End building from local businessman Donald Sussman. Sussman is also donating resources to help the PFC renovate the building and move in by the end of the year. The property, located at 60 Hampshire St., will provide office, storage and park-

tions over the years. A life-long love of music, he played the guitar in local bands, performed as an Elvis impersonator for charities, and above all, enGallant joyed singing. He was also known for performing magic tricks, and never revealed his techniques. Cooking Sunday dinners and spending time on his boat with his family were his

favorite weekend activities. He also enjoyed hanging out with friends after work at his cousin’s body shop. A devoted husband and an admirable father, he was a man of character and inspiration to those who knew and loved him. He was a member of St. Patrick’s Church in Portland, a life member of V.F.W. and the Moose Club in Scarborough. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Sissy Gallant; four children, daughter Jesse Gallant of South Portland, son Travis Gallant and Ginita DiFazio of

ing space, and will allow for the co-op to eventually operate with a storefront. Currently the co-op exists as a preorder food cooperative, where memberowners use an online ordering system to select from over 60,000 discounted local, bulk and organic products. The products are then divided into individual orders and picked up from the PFC office located in the Meg Perry Center. The new space will enable the PFC to expand its current pre-order operations, begin limited retail sales, and transition to a storefront cooperative. “The donation of this lease offers the PFC a fantastic opportunity to expand the number of member-owners, offer convenience and work with local producers to increase the amount of local, healthy food available to Portland area residents,”

said Emily Graham, PFC board member, in a recent press release. To become a member-owner of the Portland Food Co-op, an equity investment of $100 is required. Payment plans are available. The co-op also has a $10 low-income member-ownership option for individuals receiving public assistance. For more information or to become a member, please visit

Exploring Sewall Woods Preserve in Bath If you are looking for an October walk in a beautiful forest setting, with outstanding water views, peace and quiet, then consider a visit to the Sewall Woods Preserve in Bath. We recently enjoyed a three-hour afternoon walk following the blue-blazed Whiskeag Trail north toward Thorne Head, with much time spent relaxing on the shores of Whiskeag Creek. To get to the preserve drive north on High Street in Bath. Turn left onto the Whiskeag Road. A few hundred yards on the right you will see a gravel entrance road marked by stone pillars and signs leading up into a small parking area. A map of the preserve is available at the informational kiosk. A white blazed access trail leads into the main blue-blazed

Whiskeag Trail. The Whiskeag Trail is a five-mile long system stretching from the Bath Area Family YMCA on Centre Street up into the Thorne Head Preserve, passing through Sewall Woods on its way to Thorne Head. On Sept. 18 a grandopening celebration was held to mark the completion of the trail. Whiskeag is an Abenaki word meaning “a creek that runs nearly dry at low tides.” The trail through Sewall Woods follows along the eastern edge of Whiskeag Creek for 2,300 feet, providing many opportunities for bird watching. Hundreds of gulls splashed about in the middle of the large v-shaped cove, an osprey wheeled overhead, and

blue jay, crow and chickadee calls infiltrated the forest depths. We visited on a full moon high tide and the water was so high that the purple asters along the shoreline were completely underwater. It was magical watching them sway under the water as wavelets rolled into the shore. In the warm afternoon sun a vast carpet of shimmering diamonds danced on the water. The upland forest is a mix of evergreens and hardwoods. In many spots young pines have created an open, understory of soft grasses, providing open views through the woods. In other spots large hemlock offer cooling shadows. One stout red oak we roughly measured

That’s about 35,000 new homes and 25,000 new jobs. Over the past year, the Gorham East-West Corridor Feasibility Study, a major transportation/land use study in Gorham, Westbrook, Scarborough and South Portland, has been examining the problems this could bring – and developing possible solutions.

with outstretched arms was 15 feet in circumference. The preserve features many pockets of large ash trees, their leaves now turning a vibrant golden hue. The ash in the preserve are some of the largest we have seen anywhere in Mid-Coast Maine. Ash is often sought out for firewood because it can be burned effectively, even when it is green. We followed the blue blazes north up into the southern end of Thorne Head Preserve before turning around. Along the shoreline we found three exceptional small peninsulas sticking out into the water providing far-reaching views. Each spot is obvious, and has unmarked paths leading down to them. We scanned the sky for bald eagles, and the far shore for Canada geese. The warm sun nearly lulled us to sleep. As you gaze north toward the Kennebec River you will spy red and green navigational buoys marking the main channel of the river as it flows past Thorne Head. The water was frothing here, and a line of boiling and hissing water buffeted the buoys. A few large wooded islands serve as natural chock stones to further confuse the seaward searching waters. A few pleasure boats passed by on their way up to Chops Point. For amateur botanists there is a lot to enjoy at ground level, too. A few patches of wintergreen provided what we call “nature’s mouthwash.” The chewy pinkishwhite berries have a wonderful zesty teaberry gum taste. A variety of mushrooms flourished in the cool moist air of autumn. Trail-side sarsaparilla leaves radiated dazzling cinnamon-red colors. Green mats of hair-cap moss provided stabilizing cover. This moss was often used in pioneer days to create a tea used in dissolving kidney and gall stones. Gray patches of reindeer moss dotted trail-side ledges. This lichen is an important food source for caribou in the Arctic regions. It also serves mankind as an important indicator species of environmental pollution, acting as a sponge and absorbing impurities from the atmosphere. Scientists in the Chernobyl area studied it after the 1986 Ukrainian nuclear meltdown to determine how far the nuclear fallout had traveled. Humans have had a presence here for a long time. Eight thousand years ago the Abenaki harvested wild rice from the brackish marshes. The 90-acre preserve is crisscrossed by stone walls that once marked vast hillside pastures. You will also find evidence of old dumping grounds and a foundation, all testimony to how land use changes over time, and how quickly Mother Nature re-establishes control. The Sewall Woods Preserve is one of many diverse properties managed by the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust. Check out their website ( for further information about the preserve and other land trust projects.

Championship thoughts Cape

suffers tough loss

Field hockey teams shooting for post-season glory By Michael Hoffer Ed. Note: For the full Scarborough-Cheverus game story, please visit For the first time since 2006, all three local field hockey teams will take part in the postseason. The Scarborough Red Storm, 2009 Class A state champions, are once again the team to beat despite losing an abundance of talent to graduation. The Red Storm simply reloaded in 2010 and wound up 13-1, good for the top spot in Western A. Scarborough closed the regular season with four impressive wins in six days. After romping, 8-1, at Biddeford, the Red Storm dominated Cheverus, 6-1, in a regional final rematch, routed host Noble, 8-0, then held off host Gorham, 2-0. Against the Stags, Scarborough fell behind 1-0, then came to life and went up 3-1 by halftime behind two goals from senior Sarah Bunting and another from senior Rachael Millett (assisted by Bunting). Bunting added a third goal in the second half and sophomore Ali Pelczar and senior Kristen Felt added tallies to finish it off. “We’ve been waiting for Cheverus this whole time,” Bunting said. “We knew they’d bring everything. They’re a really hard team to beat. We’re both far up in the (Heal Points). It was almost like a championship for our area. After the first goal, I think it was

“We always had faith in ourselves that we’d be good,” Bunting said. “We didn’t expect to be as good as we are now, but we’ve stepped up to the challenge. We really want to keep the title. Homefield advantage is huge for us. We’re so much more comfortable and we don’t want anyone to beat us on our field.” South Portland missed the

By Eric Carson WELLS—When the final horn sounded, the Wells Warriors football team lingered under the lights and talked among themselves on how its first win over mighty Cape Elizabeth since 2005 was all about “respect.” And while there’s no question Wells earned some juice around the league, there just happened to be a few other important eventualities on the line such as sole possession of second place and a home date for the first round of the Campbell Conference playoffs next month. But even with these few items up for grabs, the Warriors’ bigtime victory will long be remembered by the magical two-way performance turned in by junior quarterback Paul McDonough. In a hard-hitting, harsh-talking battle of attrition, McDonough intercepted an errant pass from his safety position and returned it 22-yards for a touchdown midway through the opening quarter. He would then go on to play a down-

a bit of a wakeup call for us. We knew we had to bring everything and we did. The score proved it.” “The statement has been made,” Scarborough coach Kerry Mariello said. “It was great for us. We didn’t know what to expect and to come out like this is a huge confidence boost for us.” Senior Chelsey Michaud, junior Lindsay Dobecki and sophomore Stephanie Felt all had two goals in the win at Noble. Senior

Kristen Felt and junior Kelsey Howard scored against Gorham. Scarborough will face the winner of a preliminary round contest between No. 8 Massabesic (8-6) and No. 9 Gorham (8-6) in the quarterfinals Wednesday of next week. The Red Storm are seeking a third straight regional crown and a second successive state championship. They downed the Mustangs, 9-1, at home on Sept. 22.

Local teams looking for strong finishes to seasons

South Portland junior Joey DiBiase breaks free Friday night at Deering. DiBiase rushed for 63 yards in the Red Riots’ 35-0 loss.

By Michael Hoffer (Ed. Note: For the full South Portland-Deering football story, please visit With one sport, golf, already bestowing state championships and another, field hockey, set to begin its postseason, the rest of the fall slate is also rapidly nearing an end. Here’s a look at how locals are faring: Football While Cape Elizabeth’s football team was suffering its first loss Friday night, South Portland was falling to 3-3 with a 35-0 setback at Deering. The Red Riots had 181 yards of offense, but turned the ball over three times and couldn’t stop Rams senior Jamie Ross (three rushing

TDs, one passing). Deering led 14-0 after one quarter and added TDs the second, third and fourth periods. “We made some mistakes early in the kicking game and gave a very good team opportunities and as you’d expect, Deering capitalized on them and got some real momentum on their sideline and we weren’t able to recover,” lamented Red Riots coach Steve Stinson. “We have to find something to move forward with. We’re not happy with what happened tonight. We got a quick reality check. Their speed and physicality really overwhelmed us.” South Portland still controls its playoff fate. Wins in the final two games (Friday night, at Gorham,

and at home against Portland Oct. 23) would end an eight-year postseason drought. Last year, at home, the Red Riots were upset by Gorham (which is 0-6 in 2010), 36-34. “We have to practice and get better,” Stinson said. “We can still make a positive impact on this season.” Scarborough improved to 5-1 with a 63-14 home romp over Noble. Senior Mark Pearson scored three TDs. Senior Dennis Liu and junior Scott Thibeault both scored twice. It was the Red Storm’s highest points total since moving up to Class A in 2003. By comparison, Scarborough scored a total of 81 points all of last season. The Red Storm have

all but wrapped up their first-ever Class A playoff berth and are fighting to move up in the Crabtree Points standings. Friday, Scarborough is at Marshwood (2-4). Last year, the Hawks rolled over the Red Storm at home, 336. Scarborough closes the following Friday at Kennebunk. Boys’ soccer Scarborough’s boys’ soccer team bounced back from its stunning loss to Deering last week with victories over visiting Windham (2-0) and Bonny Eagle (4-1) to improve to 10-2 (first in the latest Western Class A Heal Points standings). Against the Eagles, junior Andrew Jones

and senior Brett Leighton scored. In the win over the Scots, Jones, seniors Connor Gullifer and Kevin Philbrick and sophomore Trevor Sparta tickled the twine. The Red Storm were at Sanford Thursday and close at home versus Thornton Academy Tuesday of next week. Scarborough will likely be the top seed in Western A for the seventh year in a row. Cape Elizabeth and South Portland are also in the mix. The Capers won, 2-1, at Falmouth last Thursday, fell, 3-1, at Yarmouth Saturday, then downed host Freeport, 6-0, Tuesday, to improve to 9-2-2 (third in Western A).

ris and Tim Takach all had two goals in the win over the Falcons. Cape Elizabeth goes to York Tuesday for its regular season finale. The Red Riots were 9-2-1 and seventh at press time. South Portland held off visiting Thornton Academy, 2-1, last Thursday (sophomore Damjan Draskovic had both goals), then tied host Gorham, 2-2, Tuesday. Juniors Dan Grazewski and Nem Kaurin had early goals, but the Red Riots couldn’t hold on. They were at Portland in a pivotal contest Thursday and close at home against Cheverus Monday. In Western D, Greater Portland Christian School is 6-5 and third in the Heals after a 9-0 home loss to Calvary Christian Saturday and a 2-0 setback at Richmond Tuesday. The Lions were at Calvary Christian Thursday and close the regular season at Islesboro Saturday. Girls’ soccer On the girls’ side, Scarborough has all but locked up the top seed in Western A and is looking to go undefeated for the first time in program history. The Red Storm were 3-0 winners at Deering last Wednesday (junior Haley Carignan scored twice and senior Tori Armishaw also had a goal). They were idle until Wednesday when they went to Bonny Eagle. Scarborough (11-0) is home with Sanford Friday and finishes the regular season at Thornton Academy Tuesday of next week. South Portland has fallen to 13th in the Heals (only the top 10 teams make the playoffs) after recent losses to visiting McAuley (2-0) and host Thornton Academy (2-1). Sophomore Jenacee Bradbury had the goal against the Golden Trojans. The Red Riots (4-6-1) were home against Gorham Wednesday, visit Portland Friday and close at Marshwood Tuesday. Cape Elizabeth eked out a 1-0 win at Falmouth last Thursday on junior Kayla Raftice’s goal in double-overtime. After falling, 3-0, at undefeated Yarmouth Saturday, the Capers enjoyed a 5-2 home win over Freeport Tuesday to improve to 7-5-1 (seventh in Western A). Seniors Sydney Banks and Emily Donovan, juniors Lexi Cantara and Kelsey Jackson and sophomore Hannah Dineen all scored. Senior Karyn Barrett had a pair of assists. Senior goalkeeper Lexi Weatherbie made seven saves. The Capers finish the regular season at home versus defending Class B champion York Tuesday. In Western D, GPCS is 4-6-1 and in the No. 4 spot. Last Wednesday, the Lions downed host Valley, 7-5, thanks to five goals from standout Elaine Beech. Liz Garland added two goals. After a 6-0 setback at Vinalhaven Friday and a 5-1 home victory over Calvary Christian, GPCS lost its finale, 6-1, at Richmond. The Lions will await the release of the final Heal Points to see if they’re in the playoffs. Cross country Cape Elizabeth’s cross country teams took part in the Western Maine Conference championship meet last week. The powerhouse Capers girls’ squad (ranked second behind Cheverus in the latest coaches’ poll) came in first with 34 points.

The Red Riots (along with Deering, McAuley and Portland) run at Cheverus in the finale Friday. Golf Scarborough and Cape Elizabeth took part in last weekend’s team golf state championships at a windy and cold Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro. In Class A, the Red Storm (who went 8-1-1 in the regular season) came in sixth with a team score of 344 (Gorham edged Brunswick and Deering in a tiebreaker to take the title). Dan Slavin led the way with a 78. Brendan Hall shot an 85, Zach Pelczar 90 and Kyle Noble 91. Kyle Parrot also took part and finished with a 92. In Class B (won by Falmouth, 315), Cape Elizabeth (2-8 in the regular season) placed seventh with a 360. Ben Berman led the Capers with an 83. Ben Morse (88), Will Leblonde (93) and Brad Dickinson (96) also scored. The individual championships for boys’ and girls’ are Saturday, also at Natanis.

Cape football from page 19 right heroic second half behind center in the face of a terrific Capers defense paced by the relentless, punishing play of sophomore Andrew Lavallee in the trenches. For his encore, McDonough engineered a 10-play scoring drive that began with under a minute left in third and ended nearly four minutes later with perhaps the play of the season so far. Like he has a knack for doing, McDonough turned absolutely nothing into the game-winning touchdown to lift Wells to a critical 14-7 win in front of a hostile, super-charged house on hand at Warrior Memorial Field.

The first regular season loss in two years for Cape Elizabeth drops the defending regional champs back into the pack of one-loss teams, joining Wells at 5-1. Locked in a 7-7 tie, Wells took over with 46 seconds left to close out the third quarter and finished only after McDonough had engineered a 10-play, 41-yard scoring march. McDonough broke free for a 30yard gain down the center of the field, and twice connected through the air on a huge 3rd-and-long situation and another on 4thand-11, with a scrambling throw over the middle for 18 yards to extend the drive. “Some of the throws McDonough made late in the game I thought were even bigger than the pitch play they scored on,”

October 15, 2010

said Cape Elizabeth coach Aaron Filieo. “He’s just so athletic. We had the right call on the pitch and had two guys there all over him. That was like playing backyard football.” From the 4-yard line on 2nd-and-goal, McDonough called his own number and rolled left in the option to suddenly find he had no place to go. Corralled in the grasp of a pair of Cape Elizabeth defenders, McDonough managed to get free just long enough to lateral back to senior Michael Moates all alone at the 5-yard line. With just about everyone under the fairly reasonable impression McDonough had been stopped, there was no one keeping an eye on Moates and he waltzed in untouched for the score that proved to be the difference as Wells took a 14-7 lead with 9:09 left to play

in the game and never looked back. McDonough compiled 104 yards of total offense in the second half on 3-of-6 passing for 36 yards and seven carries for 68 more. He was helped out along the way by Wells senior fullback Chad Whitten, particularly to start the second half when he began to find room between the tackles and picked up 39 yards on 10 carries. “It’s not the end of the world, it just leaves us with a sour taste,” Lavallee. “This is a reality check for us. We know that we have room to get better. We haven’t lost in the regular season for a long time. It shows that we’re not as good as in previous seasons. But we still have it takes to be there in the end. We have to work hard and improve.”

Cape football from page 22 Not be outdone, the Warriors defense was beyond stingy in a game that was stuck on nasty from the first snap. McDonough picked off Cape Elizabeth senior quarterback Derek Roberts for six, and the Wells defense completely and thoroughly dominated the second half. After taking the lead in the fourth, Wells pounded out a 10-play, 55-yard drive that stalled but spent 5:57 of the final quarter. The Warriors took possession with 7:29 left and didn’t give it back until there were just two minutes left for the Capers to rally. But there would be no comeback in this one, as the Warriors forced a pair of turnovers on the Capers’ last two possessions of the game to seal the win. In one almost unbelievable way to evaluate the second half, Wells held possession of the football for 16:57 of the available 24 minutes. In that time, Wells ran 39 plays to the Capers 16 and picked up 181 yards despite eight penalties. Cape Elizabeth had only one extended drive in the loss, hammering away in the running game on a 13-play series that lasted for 7:37 of the second and went 55 yards to tie the score at 7-7. The Capers thundered away with senior captain Jack MacDonald, with Roberts handing to the fullback nine times for 32 yards. MacDonald powered his way to the one-yard line but couldn’t punch in on three tries.

Instead, Cape Elizabeth would need a diving catch at the threshold of the end zone on fourth down by senior Kyle Danielson to even the score. Roberts rolled to his right and found Danielson for the score. “(McDonough’s) a good player,” said Danielson. “This is a tough loss but I like the way we never gave up. Even after the interception with under a minute left we still fought and got the ball back. This game could have been totally different. We lost on a lot of silly mistakes, mostly mental. But I have a feeling we’ll see this team again and it will be a different game.” After stopping Wells’ long march but still trailing 14-7 with just over two minutes left, Cape Elizabeth took over, but was intercepted on the first play. Wells had a chance to salt the game away, but Danielson punched the ball free and recovered it with 46 seconds left for one more try. This time, the Capers would get off three plays, but Roberts was sacked from behind and fumbled back to Wells with 24 seconds left. The Warriors took a knee and celebrated with helmets raised after a monster win that puts them alone in second place. Looking ahead, there’s a very good chance that Wells will win out and finish the season at 8-1, guaranteeing them the No. 2 slot for the Western B regional playoffs that begin in just four weeks. Wells’ final three games are at Poland, home against Gray-New Gloucester and at York. The Capers, on the other hand, are by



no means down and out. A year after winning its first regional championship, Cape Elizabeth can still finish as high as second in the division if they can beat Greely on the road next week, Lake Region at home and then on the road in the regular season finale at Mountain Valley.


“We just couldn’t get anything going on offense,” said Filieo. “Our field position was terrible all night and we usually count on that. The defense pitched a shutout for three quarters. We know we’re going to fight. It’s a matter of practicing harder and getting more experienced.”

Championships from page 19 playoffs each of the last three seasons and didn’t win a single contest in 2007 or 2008, but the Red Riots righted the ship this spring, winning eight of 10 after dropping their first four.

South Portland enjoyed signature victories over Cheverus, Gorham and Scarborough and captured their final three games over Bonny Eagle (3-2, in doubleovertime), Windham (2-1) and Deering (2-1). Senior Felicia Farnham and sophomore Jaclyn Salevsky scored in regulation

against the Scots and senior Becca Roberts had the winner in OT. “It was a tourney atmosphere,” said South Portland coach Heather Seavey. “We were evenly matched the whole game. We might see them again. If will be a great game if we do.” Against the Eagles, Farnham had both goals, including the winner in the second half. Sophomore Lani Edwards stopped eight shots to preserve the win. Goals from Farnham and senior Katie Murphy were enough to beat the winless Rams Tuesday as the Red Riots finished 8-6. South Portland appears ticketed for the No. 6 seed in Western A and a quarterfinal round game at No. 3 Thornton Academy (10-3-1) Tuesday. On Oct. 4, the Red Riots lost at the Golden Trojans, 4-2.

October 15, 2010

In Western B, after a year away from the postseason, Cape Elizabeth has returned to form.

The Capers won, 2-1, at Falmouth last Friday (sophomore Lauren Steidl had both goals), then fell, 1-0, at Wells Tuesday to finish 7-6-1.

Cape Elizabeth will likely be sixth in the final Heals and could face No. 3 Greely in Tuesday’s quarterfinals. The teams split in the regular season, both winning at home (the Capers by a 2-1 score, the Rangers, 1-0).

Looking ahead, the semifinals will be Saturday, Oct. 23, on the field of the highest remaining seeds. The regional finals are Tuesday, Oct. 26 at Scarborough High School. The Class A, B and C state championship games will be at the University of Maine in Orono on Saturday, Oct. 30. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@

Out & About

Cosby at Merrill, big weekend at One Longfellow Square By Scott Andrews A multiple Grammy- and Emmy-winning comedian and several award-winning musicians are the top acts in Portland this weekend. Portland Ovations hosts comedian Bill Cosby, the much-loved star of television and concert halls, for two shows on Saturday. It’s a big musical weekend at One Longfellow Square, with three appealing acts slated in a span of three days. First up on Friday is the Duke Robillard Band. Robillard is recognized as one of the master blues artists of our time, having copped the Blues Music Awards honors for Best Blues Guitarist four times in the past decade. Saturday and Sunday feature Celtic and Celtic-inspired artists. Irish-born Susan McKeown, a Grammy Award-winning vocalist, will perform on Saturday. She has a new CD coming out at the end of this month. Then on Sunday, harpist-vocalist Maeve Gilchrist is the star of her own CD release party. In addition to Gilchrist’s own performance, she’s invited a host of others to make music with her. These include Darol Anger, a local fiddling phenom, and Naia, a Maine-based Celtic harp-flute duo. Bill Cosby Comedian, actor, author, television producer, educator, musician and social activist: Those are some of the occuptional titles sported by Bill Cosby. He’s also been described as an American treasure, and his trove of good humor will open for all this Saturday with two performances under the aegis of Portland Ovations. Cosby’s been a show business star for more than 40 years. I remember his first big TV hit series of the 1960s, “I Spy,” a fantasy sci-fi series that co-starred the late Robert Culp. That show earned him three Emmy Awards. His own shows, dating from the 1970s into the 1980s, made him an icon of American culture, supported by movie appearances, records — which copped an incredible total of seven Gram-

my Awards — plus countless national and international tours as a standup comic. Portland Ovations presents Bill Cosby at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Oct. 16 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800. Duke Robillard He goes by many titles: guitarist, bandleader, songwriter, singer, producer and session player. Plus he’s a one-man cheering section for the blues, in all its myriad forms and permutations. Duke Robillard, the many-faceted bluesman, will be visiting One Longfellow Square in Portland this Friday with his eponymous band. With a career that spans more than four decades, you might be tempted to think that the 62-year-old Robillard might be slowing down a bit and resting on his many laurels. Hardly. He recorded and released three new CDs last year, and launched an entirely new project that recalls and honors the memory of Billie Holiday. He’s on the road much of the time, playing as many as 250 dates per year. Born in Rhode Island, Robillard broke into the national spotlight in 1967 by co-

founding the seminal band, Roomful of Blues. He’s also been the guitarist with the Fabulous Thunderbirds as well as a sideman and session player for dozens upon dozens of artists and recording projects, including Jimmy Witherspoon, Pinetop Perkins and Bob Dylan. The Blues Music Awards — formerly the W.C. Handy Awards — named Robillard as Best Blues Guitarist four years out of five (2000, 2001, 2003, 2004), making him the second most honored guitarist for that category. He was also nominated in 2005, 2007 and 2008. Similar honors were accorded by the Canadian Blues Association and the French Blues Association. He’s been nominated for two Grammy Awards, most recently for one of last year’s recordings. One Longfellow Square (corner of Congress and State) in Portland presents the Duke Robillard Band at 8 p.m. Oct. 15. Call 761-1757. Susan McKeown Susan McKeown began singing on the streets of her native Dublin as a teenager before moving across the Atlantic to New York on a couple of music scholarships. This month marks her 20th year in this country, and in that time span she’s recorded 10 CDs, including a Grammy Award-winner, gaining a reputation as singer-songwriter who focuses on hard-edged topics: artists struggling with depression, drugs and self-destruction. With her latest album, McKeown is turning away from those grim subjects and turning to classical poetry for inspiration. Creativity, suffering and passion are the stated themes for “Singing in the Dark,” due for release at the end of this month. McKeown’s rich contralto voice and powerfully inventive lyrics will be showcased at One Longfellow Square at 8 p.m. Oct. 16. Call 761-1757. Maeve Gilchrist and friends Born in Scotland to an Irish mother and Scottish father, Maeve Gilchrist grew up

immersed in traditional Celtic music. At the age of 17 she was awarded a full scholarship to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she studied voice and harp, quickly becoming an in-demand member of the Boston jazz and world music scenes. Currently based in New York City, Gilchrist continues to blend together her roots with jazz and Latin music, gaining international acclaim for her fresh, multicultural sound. She’s throwing a CD release party for her newest CD, “Reaching Me,” at One Longfellow Square, inviting a number of local musicians to perform with her.

A few doors down we heard happy strains of Celtic fiddle music filtering out of Blue, an ultra-cozy cafe that hosts nightly musical performances from Wednesdays to Saturday. Ducking into Blue for a few minutes, we noticed quite a lively scene: Half a dozen fiddlers and a couple of guitarists – plus a banjo picker for good measure. We had bumped into the weekly Wednesday “Irish night,” and the turnout for this impromptu gathering was full of high spirits and bursting with energy. Both of us had mourned the recent passing of the North Star Music Cafe, which had been one of our favorite haunts. But the scene at Blue reminded us that Portland’s music scene is still very vibrant, especially along the Congress Street corridor. And two of the most interesting lie within a span of a few dozen yards. One Longfellow Square is Portland’s best small showcase for national and regional acts, while tiny Blue is the city’s top spot for truly intimate entertainment.

High school

Comment on this story at:

from page 1 Selser said the group has been giving presentations to community, church and school groups in addition to putting up signs, selling T-shirts and bumper stickers, and campaigning door-to-door. “We’ve been speaking to anyone who will listen,” Selser said. “It’s been a tremendous effort by a lot of people. The response has been really, really positive.” There are several main points the group is trying to convey, Selser said. First, he said, the current school is unhealthy, unsafe and not secure. In addition to poor air quality, there are 21 entrances to the school that cannot be monitored, he said; the renovation would create two monitored, public entrances. Selser also said students will be at a disadvantage when applying for college, because their transcripts will indicate that the school is on probation, but will not explain why. Selser said strong schools equal strong communities. Having a new high school will increase property values, he said, and attract new residents and businesses to the city. He said the timing is perfect for the

project, since construction prices are at historic lows and the city has one of the strongest bond ratings in the state. “This is a very good plan at the best possible time,” Selser said. But not everyone agrees. City Council candidate Albert DiMillo Jr. has made his opposition to the school bond the focal point of his campaign. The other three candidates support the bond.

year and a half off to travel, spend time with his family and teach part time at the University of Southern Maine. “I have admired the work Alan has done in the school system and knowing him will make the transition easier,” he said. Hawkins and Murphy are both former school principals in South Portland. Murphy said he will also be able to help the School Board find a permanent superintendent because he was involved in the search for his replacement in Yarmouth. “I think this is a positive development for Cape and I am relieved we have an interim in place,” School Board Chair-

After several e-mail exchanges with former Facilities Director Norm Justice, Doyle said she was able to convince officials to replace a five-foot square of the damaged carpet with tile. But water continued to seep into her classroom through a broken door, and the carpet was often wet. When Doyle started discussing her health concerns with other teachers, she said she found out that the teacher who previously taught in the classroom had asked to be moved due to air quality issues, and that many other teachers shared her symptoms. After another teacher suffered a severe asthma attack during a meeting last spring, Doyle said she and other teachers submitted a union grievance about air quality in the building. Superintendent David Doyle (no relation to the teacher) said there was no grievance of any kind on file. “No grievance ever came to this office,” he said. Meredith Doyle said the union grievance was tabled over the summer when the School Department agreed to work on solutions. Union representatives did not respond to requests for comment.

woman Rebecca Millett said. “We are very fortunate to have someone with Ken’s dedication, experience and skill set to steer the ship for our district during this period of transition.” A gathering to officially welcome Murphy to the district is scheduled for January.

A rendering, from above the Community Center and looking up Mountain View Avenue, of what South Portland High School might look if voters approve a $41.5 million bond to renovate and expand the school.

DiMillo’s only campaign signs say “Vote no SPHS expansion” and claim the plan “includes $27 million in waste.” He accuses the School Department of lying about the plan by saying the project is a renovation, when it will actually increase the size of the building by 50 percent, from about 200,000 square feet to about 300,000 square feet. The square footage per student will be one of the But whether or not there was a grievance, copies of studies by Northeast Test Consultants show Wentworth school has been plagued with air quality concerns for at least 12 years – long before the discovery this year of asbestos in window glazing. All of the studies were done in classrooms or offices where complaints were made. The entire school has never been tested, administrators have said, because the cost is prohibitive. A test of Meredith Doyle’s classroom in January 2009 found low levels of the mold spore Aspergillus in the room. The World Health Organization recommends that any indoor presence of Apsergillus be considered unacceptable. Long-term exposure to the mold is associated with increased sensitivity to airborne irritants. Doyle’s room was in the west wing of the school, which is part of an addition built in the 1970s. The wing sits on a slab and is not near the school’s underground utility tunnels, which tested high for mold and radon when Northeast Test Consultants examined them last spring. The variety of issues throughout the building, and the associated teacher and student complaints, could suggest sick building syndrome, which is defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection

highest in the state, he said. Meanwhile, the project would rebuild relatively new portions of the school, like the cafeteria, DiMillo said, and contains “team rooms” that would not be approved if it were a state-funded project. “There is nothing about this project that makes sense,” he said. While DiMillo claims there is $27 million in waste in the plan, Selser said those calculations do not account for the realities and complexities of construction. Much of the cost, Selser said, is for site work, and the extra square footage is being driven by the decision to keep three anchors of school: Beal Gym, the South Portland Auditorium and the original portion of the school at Highland Avenue and Mountain View Road. “(DiMillo) is a whiz with numbers, but he’s not a construction professional,” Selser said.

Agency as “situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified.” During a Town Council meeting on Oct. 6, Wentworth Principal Ann Marye Dexter said students and teachers were complaining of headaches, and that she was seeing the impact of poor air quality on the curriculum. “I’m truly worried the distraction is taking away from us moving forward with education,” she said. According to the Maine Air Quality Council, “because of the nature of sick building syndrome, there is no single test that can confirm or refute problems. The best approach is to investigate the entire building.” “We wouldn’t be able to afford a whole-school test,” Facilities Director Todd Jepson said last week. “It’s over $1,000 for just one room.” A test last month by the state Bureau of General Services recommended the school conduct an “air test for mold in

EXCAVATION Ask Lou Gagne, R. Ph. Why request compounded medicines? Strength - compounded drugs can be prepared in strengths not usually available. Inactive ingredients - compounded drugs can be made without dyes, sugars, glutens, preservatives and other inactive ingredients found in regular prescription drugs. Delivery Method - compound drugs can be prepared as topical creams, lozenges or flavored syrups (great for kids and animals) instead of hard-to-swallow pills. Call Lou for a phone consultation today.

School Department scrambles to deal with Wentworth woes

Health issue from page 30 the rest of the school using at least four classrooms (spaced apart) and one in the hallway in each wing to give a complete scenario of the school as a whole.” Jepson said he has already requested the mold testing begin as soon as Northeast Test Consultants finishes with the remediation of the tunnels, which is expected to be the end of next week. While a 2006 bond to replace the Wentworth and Middle School buildings was rejected by voters, a building committee is currently being put together to review how to deal with existing facilities issues, including air quality and asbestos at Wentworth. Some town officials are already speculating about the possibility of another bond question next year. In the meantime, the district is scrambling to deal with the complaints. While Superintendent David Doyle said several weeks ago and confirmed again this week that he was only aware of one teacher complaint about air quality at the school, Jepson indicated he was aware of far more. “If we did (a test) every time someone complained, we’d do it all the time,” he said. “One super-sensitive person can’t

SCARBOROUGH — Teachers and students may only have to cope a while longer with stuffy, stagnant air in classrooms in Wentworth Intermediate School. The School Board approved up to $150,000 to replace 28 windows in the classrooms where windows have been sealed closed to prevent asbestos discovered in the glazing from entering the classrooms. Facilities Director Todd Jepson earlier this week said he hoped the window order would be placed by Thursday, Oct 14. “The contractors have told me it will take six to eight weeks to build the windows,” Jepson said. “Then we’ll start installing

them immediately.” The Town Council voted Oct. 13 to approve appropriating unused funds from three school capital improvement projects, including the Blue Point parking and water main project, fire alarm system renewal and district-wide floor asbestos abatement, to pay for the new windows. According to Superintendent David Doyle, the three projects were completed in 2009 and were bonded, based on cost estimates, before the projects began. When all three came in under budget it left the approximately $150,000 in surplus the district will now use to replace the windows.

In addition to replacing the windows, Jepson said the district would spend $6,000 to test for mold in 16 classrooms, four in each section of the building, and all four hallways. The state Bureau of General Services recommended the testing after several student, parent and teacher complaints, and an inspection several weeks ago. Funding for the testing will come from the Facilities Department budget. “We’ll be picking rooms that haven’t been tested in the past,” Jepson said. “We want people to know we’re being as thorough as we can.” — Emily Parkhurst

dictate school-wide testing.” During her presentation to the Town Council last week, Dexter said several staff members have complained of headaches and other health concerns. “I find this to be a daily occurrence,” she said. “It’s several staff, not just one or two.” For Meredith Doyle, the suggestion that she was the only one with issues at the school and that she was just a hypersensitive person finally got the best of her. After taking a 40-day leave of

absence last spring, recommended by her doctor for health reasons, she realized how much better she felt being away from the school. So she quit. Doyle is now teaching at Riverton School in Portland, in a classroom with tile floors. “When I saw the classroom, I cried,” she said. Doyle said her breathing has improved and she is off all of her medication, but that she is still very sensitive to any irritants in the air. She said the most frus-

trating part about her experience teaching in Scarborough was the lack of response from the administration. “I was told there was not much they could do because of money. I was not treated very nicely because of money. But we have money for other things, like turf for the athletic fields, and technology,” she said. “I’m all for things for the kids. However those kids need a safe environment to learn.” Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or
