Scarborough sewer rates could rise 20% By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — Citing slower revenue growth and continued fixed costs, Sanitary District Superintendent David Hughes said a proposed 20 percent rate increase could add $600,000 in revenue next year. The public will have a chance to discuss the proposal at a 7:30 p.m. public hearing in the Scarborough High School cafeteria on Thursday, Oct. 25. Sanitary District information details the first rate increase in nine years, which would boost residential rates from $82.50 per quarter (or $330 annually) to $99 per quarter (or $396 annu-

Brian Robinson feigns ferocity Wednesday on Cummings Road in South Portland. His efforts to lure and direct customers to Spirit Halloween are “the best form of advertising for the store,” operator Deede Dunbar said. Robinson said he enjoys the work and making people smile.
Outdoor antics lure customers with Halloween ‘spirit’ By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — Outside appearances make a great contribution to the inside bottom line at Spirit Halloween in the Target Plaza. For two people who spend their days in costume waving at motorists and directing customers to the store, it’s all part of the holiday fun. “I like the camaraderie with people,” said Brian Robinson, 53. “I get tired, but God
gives me the energy. I can smile and make people’s day.” Robinson was dressed as a pirate Wednesday, screaming “arghh” at drivers entering and leaving the shopping plaza via Cummings Road. It was less than menacing, but his exuberance is what store operator Deede Dunbar said she looks for each year when hiring waSee page 31
ally), an increase of 20 percent. Commercial, institutional and industrial rates will also rise. Minimum user fees will be increased to match residential rates, while the charge per 100 cubic feet of water used will increase from $1.73 to $2.08, also a 20 percent rise. If approved by the district’s Board of Trustees, the new rates would take effect Jan. 1, 2013. Customers would see the increases in their first quarterly bills at the end of March 2013. Hughes said he expects the rate increases to boost district

City Council updates S.P. goals, aspirations By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — The immediate effects of some decisions made this week by the City Council will be seen in residences and restaurants. But council approval of updates to the Comprehensive Plan could determine city policy for the next two decades. Councilors approved amendments to the general nuisance ordinance, allowing neighbors of properties posing possible health, safety and environmental problems to ask the council to order a cleanup. The city also adopted updated state health codes for city
inspections of food establishments, which allows continued municipal inspections by code enforcement staff. It was the passage of 319 pages of Comprehensive Plan updates and data, culminating a 30-month effort led by Councilor Maxine Beecher, that drew praise and vows to implement recommended changes to preserve open spaces, develop commercial areas and ensure housing remains affordable. Beecher collaborated with Planning Director Tex Haeuser, Code Enforcement Officer PaSee page 14
Maine’s public access ombudsman expects to be busy By Will Graff FREEPORT — Public access and freedom of information advocates have long been calling for the appointment of an official to help the public navigate Maine’s freedom of access laws. They got their wish in the last legislative session when two Index Arts Calendar ................20 Classifieds .....................26 Community Calendar.....23 Meetings ........................23
bills passed, fully funding the state’s first public access ombudsman, with $88,000 in annual salary and benefits. Maine became the sixth state to create a public access ombudsman. Attorney General William Schneider made the appointment in early September, selecting
his public information officer, Freeport resident Brenda Kielty. She will work in both capacities in the attorney general’s office until the PIO position is filled. Kielty, an attorney, mediator and Regional School Unit 5 board member, said she believes freedom of access is funda-
mental to a democratic society and she will lean to the side of public access, as directed by See page 24 Brenda Kielty, Maine’s first public access ombudsman. The position was created by the Legislature in 2007, but remained unfunded until earlier this year.

Proposed gourmet market seeks Cape approvals Comment on this story at:
By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — Almost a year after a preliminary proposal, plans to build a gourmet market near Cape Elizabeth High School are moving forward. Resident Michael Concannon hopes to build a 3,000-square-foot, mercantilestyle deli and light grocery store called C’s Gourmet Market at 349 Ocean House Road, adjacent to the high school’s driveway. Concannon, along with landscape architect John Mitchell, presented the proposed designs for the market at a Planning Board meeting Tuesday night.
“I feel like we’re on a good track and hope to get final approval by the spring,” Concannon said Wednesday. “We’d love to be open by this time next year.” The board was largely in favor of the plans, but expressed concerns about the market disrupting traffic flow in and out of the high school. Members planned a site walk for the property at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 23., which is open to the public. The walk is intended to answer the board’s questions and addresses concerns, although no

The proposed market will have about 24 seats and serve sandwiches, salads, soups, coffee and desserts, which will also be available for take-out, Concannon said. In addition to the prepared foods, he

Family business seminar in South Portland SOUTH PORTLAND — More than 80 percent of Maine’s businesses are familyowned. Buying, selling or passing these businesses on are the topics of a forum beginning at 8 a.m. Oct. 25 at the Marriott at Sable Oaks.

Institute President and Downeast Energy CEO John Peters said the day-long seminar will cover facets of buying and selling family-owned businesses. Included are discussions on transition planning, tax and accounting laws and the life after selling a family-owned business. The seminar is followed by a social hour at 5 p.m., and is open to Institute members and non-members. For more information on seminar fees and to register, visit the seminar website.

South Portland city councilor faces re-election challenge By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — Three candidates, including incumbent Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis, are seeking two, three-year terms on the City Council. Opposing De Angelis in District 3 is political newcomer and real estate agent Melissa Linscott. In District 4, where Councilor Maxine Beecher cannot run again because of local term limits laws, Linda Cohen, a former city clerk in South Portland and Portland, is unopposed in her first campaign for public office.
District 3 Beecher has kept her voice in the District 3 race by endorsing Linscott. South Portland Mayor Patti Smith has endorsed De Angelis, who is seeking her second consecutive term and third overall in the district that covers the center of the city near the Casco Bay Bridge. Linscott, 38, lives on Adelbert Street with her husband, Brian, and their two children. The couple own and operate a Knightville real estate agency. De Angelis, 60, is unmarried and lives on Buttonwood Street. She works as a mediator and educator at Southern Maine Community College.

Each emphasized their experience outside City Hall as a way they stand out as candidates. But De Angelis said her knowledge of budgeting and city operations allows her to see and achieve short- and long-range goals. De Angelis said creating the city bicycle and pedestrian committee and opening the farmers market are examples of seeing things to fruition. Linscott said she would bring “a lot of perspectives” to the council. “I am a longtime resident, a parent of children in schools, a property owner and a business owner,” she said.

specific issues, as much as her desire to see the city move forward. She would like to revise local zoning to better attract and keep businesses, and expand the city tax base. De Angelis “Personally, I think we are a very business-friendly community,” De Angelis said. She said it is a question of balancing economic growth with quality Cohen of life issues for city residents. That balance, she said, was at the heart of her opposition to keeping angled parking on Ocean Street in Knightville. Linscott said the initial council deciLinscott sion to allow only parallel parking on the street was made the council appear to be anti-business, and the protracted process of deciding and then reversing the decision did not make the council look good. “That can put out a negative vibe,” Linscott said. Acknowledging that councilors have limited input on the school budget, both candidates said it is critical to meet early and often with School Board members to better understand how the budget is developed and the board’s perspective on continued next page

When serving as mayor in 2010-2011, De Angelis said she met with former School Board Chairman Ralph Baxter Jr. to gauge the board’s budget ideas. “In being a responsible fiduciary, it is my role to ask questions,” she said. Linscott, who serves on the School Department’s strategic planning committee, said she favors a stronger focus on programs and curriculum for students, rather than on the department’s physical plant. Both candidates praised the municipal budget process, expressing confidence in City Manager James Gailey and department heads for keeping the city bond rating the best in the state. They also favor moving the Public Works Department from O’Neil Street to a new location, but have reservations about the current preliminary plans and estimated borrowing cost of $23 million, including interest. De Angelis, who recently spoke out against some council procedures in executive sessions, said she would encourage more live broadcasts and taping of council workshops, plus contributions from department heads in the online city newsletter, as ways of keeping residents better informed. Linscott said she did not see any specific issues that reveal a lack of transparency, but vowed to be as open as possible while trying to move issues along. “I have seen the dynamic get in the way of the process in terms of moving forward,” she said. De Angelis said councilors need to be more willing to discuss differing opinions.
School Board election has 3 seats, 2 candidates SOUTH PORTLAND — School Board incumbents Richard Matthews and Tappan Fitzgerald Jr. are unopposed as they seek new three-year terms in Districts 3 and 5, respectively. In District 4, where incumbent James Gilboy decided against running again, there are no candidates on the Nov. 6 ballot. Barring a successful write-in cam-

tween the council and school board. “We need to start the process early and be working together,” Cohen said. “But I would not be afraid to tell the School Board to take something and rework it.” She said she looks forward to serving with a sense of optimism about the city. “I don’t see a whole lot wrong with South Portland,” Cohen said.

Forum examines impact of bias-based profiling By Marena Blanchard PORTLAND — Police and members of the public gathered last Friday to find common ground on bias-based profiling, a topic that affects Maine’s diverse populations and general public safety. In 2009, a bill was introduced in the 124th Maine Legislature to ban racial profiling. While legislators questioned whether it was really a problem in Maine, the Advisory Committee on Bias-based

Profiling by Law Enforcement Officers and Law Enforcement Agencies was established to examine the question. The committee was tasked with data collection, establishing policies and developing training to address any identified problems, and to foster a meaningful dialogue about perceptions between the public and law enforcement. Friday’s Advisory Committee forum in the Rines Auditorium at Portland Public Library drew about 60 members of the public, civil rights advocates, government officials and representatives from law enforcement agencies. During the discussion, several people recounted how they were pulled over while driving and told their vehicles had broken tail lights, only to later discover that both taillights were completely operational. Newell Lewey said he felt his special Native American license plate made him a target. “I’ve become ‘random.’ I’m about 80 percent random. That’s what they tell me, that it’s just random,” he said. A Latino man recalled instances of being detained for hours, notably when his passengers were African migrants. An African-American woman explained how a female officer told her she had an attitude problem because she asserted her right to not be searched. In every testimony, the speakers said, they were released without charge. And all of them believed they were arbitrarily targeted because of their race, despite laws that require officers to have probable cause for a traffic stop. Beyond the letter of the law, there is the issue of discretion. A presentation at the forum about public policing educated participants about the spectrum of discretion. According to McDevitt, discretion is particularly relevant when making traffic stops because it is combined with low visibility. “We all make mistakes,” said Doug

Re-elect De Angelis to South Portland City Council During the past three years, including her service as mayor in 2011, South Portland City Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis has been a strong voice and devoted councilor who thoughtfully does her homework. De Angelis has the hands-on experience to ask meaningful questions, recall previous actions and reference multi-year projects. By re-electing De Angelis you help to support the continuity of city actions and initiatives and ensure the experienced oversight of our annual budgets. Some degree of stability on our council is needed to maintain continuity, which in turn increases the probability that investment in community programs actually happens. With the exit of Councilors Maxine Beecher and Tom Coward, the re-election of De Angelis takes on significant meaning. If you feel that your city has been making positive steps forward and your neighborhood and city is overall, a place of pride, I ask that you vote to re-elect De Angelis and help maintain this momentum.

with me in 2006. Although he is among the youngest elected to serve, he has demonstrated maturity beyond his years. He absorbs everything. He is honest and genuine with his colleagues and his constituents. Bryan has served on the Joint Standing Committee on State and Local Government throughout his six years in the Legislature. As a result, he has a depth of knowledge about this area of our government that others lack. We need his experience and level-headedness in the coming session. Please send Bryan back to Augusta to continue his work as a consensus builder and creative problem solver. He will continue to put you first, consistently doing what is in the best interests of his community. Rep. Terry Hayes Assistant House Democratic Leader, Buckfield

90 years of making everyone’s life better My mother-in-law, Annette Molar, turned 90 on Oct. 2. The following weekend we joined much of the extended family in her hometown, Columbus, Ohio, to help celebrate this milestone. Carol’s sister, Marilyn, The View and her husband, Alan, were the local hosts. They couldn’t have been more gracious, and it was a pleasure to see everyone. For one reason or another, none of them very good, I had not seen many of them for years; I had never seen most of the children. Annette was to spend Saturday afternoon at Alan and Marilyn’s while family visited in staggered groups. Carol and Elizabeth’s job Mike Langworthy was to help her get ready. Bobby and I spent the morning replacing the laptop and glasses he lost when his backpack was stolen on the way to the airport (long, expensive story).
When we got to the house, Annette was already there, very much the center of attention, still very charming, despite losing a step or two over the years. Her memory isn’t what it once was. She has a walker, although from the way she was getting around the house without it, it may have been a dodge to get handicapped parking. The family didn’t seem to be staggering their visits so much as coming early and hanging around. It was a half hour before I had a chance to approach her. She greeted me with bright eyes and a big smile. “Well, hi! You sure put on weight!” I have, and she remembered. “I mean, you were never ‘thin,’ thin, but – it’s so good to see you!” she beckoned, and I leaned over to kiss her. Some great-grandchildren ran up to her with some toy, and that was that for a while. Short and sweet, frank, all cards on the table, everything Annette has always been. It made me smile, and it took me right back to the first time we met, which is still one of my most vivid memories. It was late on a Friday night, early in my relationship with Carol. I made the tactical error of falling hopelessly in love with her despite significant differences in our backgrounds. For example, she had a healthy relation-

ship with her mother. They saw each other, voluntarily. Carol had never broken a phone hanging up on her mom. It was unfathomable. Carol warned Annette that we would be arriving late, so she instructed us to let ourselves in, and she would see us in the morning. As we opened the door, though, we were immediately met with a voice from the top of the stairs. “Carol?” “Mom?” “I’m asleep. I’m not coming down. You’re late.” “I said midnight. It’s only eleven.” “Were you speeding? I’m not coming down. How was the drive?” “Fine. Go back to bed.” “I am,” she said as she came down. She was 5 feet nothing in fuzzy-slippered feet, zip-up housecoat and whatever those things are that women of a certain age wear to protect that sculpted spun sugar look when they’ve “just had their hair done.” continued next page

A clear choice in Maine Senate District 11 The View from Away from previous page “You must be Mike,” she said. “Please like me,” I said in my head. Out loud, it sounded something like, “Huhyeah, pleesameyah.” “Well I hope you’re not hungry, because I wasn’t expecting to feed anybody tonight.” “Mom, we’re really tired. We should go straight to bed.” “Well, that’s good because there’s nothing here. I was going to shop in the morning.” Annette shouldered Carol aside and continued to apologize as she set the table and produced a brisket, kugel, vegetables, a salad (yes, she made a salad), and a layer cake protected by plastic wrap with strategically placed toothpicks keeping it off the frosting. “This was supposed to be for tomorrow,” she said meaningfully. I could eat it and ruin her plans or not eat it and insult her baking. In the house 10 minutes, and already I was behind the eight ball. Finally, she slid into a chair next to me and across from Carol. “So, Mike,” she said, staring at Carol, “Do you smoke?” At the time, I did not. Carol did. “No. No, I do not, Mrs. Molar.” “Annette. How do you feel about smoking?” she continued, boring a hole in her daughter with her eyes. “Mom!” “Well, I suppose – “ “Don’t you think it’s stupid?” I may have fainted at this point. I’m not sure. The rest of the weekend is a pastiche of bright, blurry images separated by long periods of darkness, like passing a series of local subway stops when you’re on an express train. I can’t guarantee that the above is verbatim, but it’s a pretty good approximation. I remember the incident with great affection, as I experience my entire relationship with this feisty, funny woman who would do anything to support her children, from embarrassing one in front of the BF to get her to quit smoking, or welcoming a guy with crazy ideas and no visible means of support into her family. She hasn’t always made my life more comfortable, but she has always made it better. She has made a lot of lives better. It was overwhelming to see what she has built as four generations converged from all over the country to tell her they love her. Happy 90th, Annette. Mom.

The race for the District 11 state Senate seat has gotten a great deal more publicity than local races usually get, in large part because there is such a contrast between the two candidates. Incumbent Sen. Dick Woodbury, U-Yarmouth, is a professorial economist. The only independent in the Senate; a moderate, bipartisan problem-solver who attends both the Republican and Democratic caucuses. Republican challenger Chris Tyll of North Yarmouth is a former Navy SEAL who owns a Pat’s Pizza franchise in Portland. Tyll is running as a veteran and a businessman, The Universal but it’s what he is not running as that should bother you. Tyll’s website and literature is all about family and community, but you’d be hard pressed to figure out from his campaign platitudes that he is an ultra-conservative who is more apt to do the bidding of the hard-right faction of the Republican Party than he is to represent Edgar Allen Beem the common good of all constituents. Thanks to conservative PAC money, Tyll has way outspent Woodbury, whose publicly financed campaign has a spending cap. (Tyll makes a virtue of not taking taxpayer money, but the reason we have public financing is to avoid the out-of-control spending that pollutes elections like this.) To his credit, Tyll has apologized for the excesses of his supporters, whose mailings so far have misrepresented Woodbury’s voting record (See Dick Tax. Tax, Dick, Tax), misrepresented Tyll’s military record (he served in Iraq, but not Afghanistan) and misrepresented Tyll’s political involvements (he had nothing whatsoever to do with any tax savings anywhere.) What Tyll’s campaign literature does not mention, however, is the one political action he was involved in before running for the Senate. Last year at this time, Tyll was heading up Secure Maine’s Ballot, the Republican vote-suppression group that fought to keep voters from registering on Election Day. “If there is a potential for fraud, maybe we need to look at changing the system,” Tyll argued. “One case of fraud is too many. It’s a slap in the face to guys who keep our country free.” This is the kind of statement that reveals who Tyll really is: a good soldier of the far right. No sooner had Republicans taken power in 2010 than they moved to protect it by trying to make it harder for the young, the poor, minorities, and the elderly – all
of whom might have very good reasons not to vote Republican – to vote. They did this with a nationwide campaign of disinformation, voter I.D. laws, purging voter lists, and legislative actions aimed at eliminating the phantom menace of voter fraud. Here in Maine, the newly Republican-controlled Legislature passed a law stripping Mainers of the freedom to register to vote on Election Day. Secretary of State Charlie Summers was detailed to document the rampant voter fraud threatening our American way of life. Summers wanted badly to do so, but he couldn’t find any rampant fraud because there wasn’t any. It was the GOP that was the fraud, pretending to be concerned about voter fraud when what they were really trying to do was keep college students from voting. I’m sure Tyll believes that voter fraud is “a slap in the face to guys who keep our country free.” It’s just that it’s not true, just as it’s not true that only “guys” keep this country free. For that matter, it’s not just the military that keeps this country free. It’s also police officers, firefighters, school teachers, factory workers, and government employees – just the kind of folks the Young Guns of the Republican Party are gunning for, trying to strip them of their freedom to organize. It always amazes me how the people who make the most noise about freedom and individual liberties are often the first to want to deny those rights to others. Ask Tyll where he stands on a woman’s freedom to make her own reproductive choices or on the freedom of his gay brothers and sisters to marry. Tyll has also signed the Americans for Tax Reform pledge never to raise taxes under any circumstances, which means he owes his allegiance to tax-capper Grover Norquist, not the people of District 11. It is that No New Taxes pledge that has put America in financial jeopardy. On Nov. 8, 2011, Maine voters overwhelmingly (a margin of 3 to 2) supported a peoples’ veto that overturned the Republican voter suppression effort and restored our freedom to register to vote on Election Day. Secure Maine’s Ballot was a slap in the face to every freedom-loving man and woman in Maine. Because Tyll apparently does not understand this, because he does not own up to his role in Republican voter suppression, and because we already have the best bipartisan representative in the state, we will all be better off returning Dick Woodbury to the Maine Senate.

Bias from page 6
Bracey, of the Maine Chiefs of Police Association. “The key is not to make them more than once.” It is unknown how often bias-based profiling occurs in Maine. The Advisory Committee report filed with the Legislature in February 2012 said it was unable to collect the data because of a lack of funding. The report further noted there are 16 different vendors for data collection for over 100 agencies. A fund for the committee was allocated $500 for each year. The report said any effort to synthesize and analyze the data from multiple agencies was considered

“too expensive,” although it did not cite an exact figure or an estimate. The committee had to apply for a grant from the Broad Reach Family & Community Services in order to fulfill one of its mandated tasks of public education. The grant funded the forum. According to the Advisory Committe’s report, a few police departments volunteered to participate in a demo of how data might be collected. Again, lack of funding was cited as a barrier to starting the project. Jack McDevitt, director of the Institute on Race and Justice at Northeastern University, however, said data collection isn’t everything. He said there is value in conversation between stakeholders. Various groups coming together to work
on the issue of profiling “is unprecedented in Maine,” said committee co-Chairwoman Rachel Talbot Ross, who also urged participants to make official complaints when necessary. Alysia Melnick of ACLU Maine offered advocacy to anyone who may be hesitant to file a complaint directly with a police department. Talbot Ross also spoke about important strides in addressing bias-based profiling in Maine. First was establishing a definition of bias-based profiling that was exceptionally inclusive when compared to federal or other state definitions: “Bias-based profiling occurs when stops, detentions, searches, or asset seizures and forfeiture efforts are based on race, ethnici-
on charges of tax evasion and theft by deception. The summons lists Soule’s address as Whitworth Drive, but DeTroy said his client now lives in Florida. Soule is the owner of South Portland-based A-Best Window, but DeTroy said he is no longer involved in day-to-day operations of the business. Soule served three, three-year terms on the South Portland City Council and was elected by councilors to serve three oneyear terms as mayor. He was first elected in 1988. He last held office in 2009, then
decided not to seek re-election to the District 3 seat now held by Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis. Soule also served as campaign treasurer in Republican Peter Cianchette’s 2002 failed gubernatorial election bid against former Gov. John Baldacci. DeTroy said the “public spectacle” surrounding the release of the names overshadows the judicial severity of the alleged offense. “It is basically a speeding ticket,” he said, adding Soule can enter a guilty plea and pay a fine without making a court
“This is a guide for the decisions the city must make,” Beecher said. The updates revise a 20-year-old document, while showing how changes over the last decade have reshaped city life. City population increased 7 percent from 2000-2010, while the number of residents working in the city declined. Housing experienced significant increases in the first half of the last decade, and the plan estimates there were only 700 acres of undeveloped city land in 2010. City streams and creeks including

Trout Brook and Long Creek are considered “urban impaired,” requiring policy changes and clean-up efforts to help improve ecosystems in the watersheds. The plan found most jobs in the Maine Mall area are filled by people who don’t live in the city, so regional collaboration to improve roads and public transportation is also a priority.

ty, gender, sexual orientation, religion, economic status, age or cultural group rather than solely on an individual’s conduct and behavior or specific suspect information.” Secondly, the committee was successful in drafting a model policy. In 2011, the Maine Criminal Justice Academy adopted the policy. All police departments in Maine are required to adopt a policy banning profiling by the end of the year. The Advisory Committee sunsets in November, and is expected to file a final report for the Legislature. Training for officers at the MCJA will begin in 2013.

appearance. In the meantime, DeTroy said he has advised Soule to see how the investigation and possible court cases proceed. “At some point it will settle down,” the attorney said. “We will see how things are and deal accordingly.” David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

key is implementation. “In a way, it may be the most important part,” Eyerman said. The first step is to create a committee to ensure implementation begins, which will be discussed at an upcoming council workshop. Plan implementation extends to regional collaborations on land use and transportation policies, short- and longrange planning on municipal spending, and determining what can be done in the months and years ahead. With passage of the amendments to the general nuisance ordinance, the council is now empowered to hold hearings and determine if a property can be considered a public nuisance because it endangers public health and safety. Councilors can be petitioned by 10 neighbors who live within 500 feet of a property or by city officials and department heads to call a hearing. If councilors determine a property is a nuisance, the owner can be ordered to clean it up within 15 days or face a court order and potential fines of $100 to $2,500 per day with a $5,000 maximum. The fines are based on state law. In other business, as the council and South Portland Fire Chief Kevin Guimond honored Engine 6 Capt. Joe Nalbach for his 45 years of service, councilors also approved the purchase of a new pumper truck for $450,000. The truck, constructed by Pierce Manufacturing of Appleton, Wis., will replace Engine 8 at Central Fire Station, Guimond said. The chief said he expects delivery of the new truck about six months after a contract is signed. David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or email@example.com.

Playoffs underway, more drama to come (Ed. Note: For the complete Cape Elizabeth-Waynflete boys’ soccer, Cape Elizabeth-Waynflete girls’ soccer and ScarboroughThornton Academy field hockey game stories, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer The postseason is now in full swing for every sport save football (please see story). One local cross country team had its conference championship meet Friday. Golf wrapped up its 2012 campaign with individual championships Saturday. Field hockey’s playoffs are underway and soccer and volleyball will commence starting this weekend. Here’s a glimpse:
Golf Cape Elizabeth’s Reese McFarlane is the Class B individual golf champion. Saturday at Natanis Golf Course in Vassalboro, McFarlane, who had the best score at the team competition as the Capers came in fifth, finished with a 74, which was three shots better than Maranacook’s Luke Ruffing and Yarmouth’s Red DeSmith. Teammate Xander Schonewolf placed 11th with an 84. In Class A, Scarborough’s

Brandon Hall tied Mt. Ararat’s Tyler O’Connor for fifth with a score of 80 (Gorham’s Mike Caron took the title with a round of 75). Scarborough’s Kyle Parrott tied Greely’s Kyle Bickford for 10th with an 82. In the girls’ championship, won by Bangor’s Alice Hwang with an 84, Scarborough’s Katie Huffines finished 23rd with a 106 and teammate Megan Thibault tied Noble’s Kailey Coleman for 26th
with a 110.
Field hockey Scarborough’s powerhouse field hockey team capped a perfect regular season with a 14-0 record, outscoring the opposition, 59-0. That allowed the Red Storm to tie the national record for not allowing a goal in an entire regular season. Goalie Shannon Hicks will go in the record books as well continued next page

win over Fryeburg. The Capers were down, 8-0, after the first quarter, but pulled even by halftime on a touchdown pass from Noah Wolfinger to Cam Wilson. A short TD run from Nick Moulton put Cape Elizabeth ahead, 14-8, in the third period and the Capers put it away in the fourth on another Wolfinger to Wilson scoring pass. Cape Elizabeth (sixth in the Western Class B Crabtree Points standings) finishes the regular season at longtime nemesis Mountain Valley (2-5) Friday night. A victory wraps up a seventh straight playoff berth. Last year, the Capers lost twice to the Falcons, 2014 at home in the regular season finale and 13-0 at Rumford in the Western B semifinals. In Western A, Scarborough fell to 5-2 after dropping a hardfought 25-20 decision at Portland. The Red Storm grabbed a 7-0 lead in the first period on a 44-yard scamper by junior Dan LeClair. Portland roared back behind TD runs from sophomore quarterback continued page 19 Scarborough senior Merrick Madden runs with the ball during Friday’s 25-20 loss at Portland.
Scarborough girls’ hoops coach By Michael Hoffer SCARBOROUGH—Pending School Board approval, Ron Cote will be the new girls’ basketball coach at Scarborough High School, replacing Tom Maines, who stepped down last month. Scarborough athletic director Mike LeGage said that the interview committee will recommend Cote as the new coach to the Superintendent of Schools and School Board at its next regular school board meeting, early next month. “The School Board will have the final decision in acting on this recommendation, but if Coach Cote is approved, he will be joining an outstanding family of coaches in Scarborough,” LeGage said. “His expertise will provide Scarborough’s student-athletes with the best opportunity to learn those important life skills essential for success on and off the court. The
Scarborough family of athletic coaches is committed to the education of its students, as we believe that a dynamic program of athletics is a vital component of the educational development of students. Coach Cote has had a long and distinguished career.” Cote, who spent most of his coaching career at Biddeford High School, was an assistant coach with the Cheverus girls’ team last winter. He’s eager to begin with a Red Storm program that turned heads last season, going 19-2 and reaching the Western Class A Final before losing to eventual state champion McAuley. “I’m excited about the opportunity,” said Cote, who was part of the Scarborough girls’ program during the summer of 2011 before then-coach Jim Seavey stepped down. “I’m familiar with some of the girls. I liked working with them. continued next page
Cote from previous page They’ve done well. Coach Maines did a great job with them last year. Prior to that, Coach Seavey did a great job.” Cote, 62, is from Biddeford. He played football, basketball and baseball at St. Louis High School and spent three years on the varsity football team at the University of Maine (where he also played freshman basketball). Cote has coached for nearly four decades. After spending two years at Brewer, Cote came to Biddeford High, where he would coach and teach for 34 years. Cote coached the boys’ basketball program for 16 years, baseball for 11, was an offensive coordinator with the football program for 16 and spent 2004-2010 with the girls’ basketball team. Cote led the Tigers to the tournament every season and was a regional finalist in 2009, upsetting Scarborough in the semifinals before losing to eventual champion Deering. Cote’s final game as Biddeford’s coach resulted in a narrow loss to eventual champion Scarborough in the 2010 Western A semifinals. Cote was named Coach of the Year, was a 2003 recipient of the Maine Sports Legends
Hall of Honors award and also coached the University of New England men’s basketball program for seven years in the 1990s. He earned a Coach of the Year honor at that level as well. In fact, the Southern Maine Activities Association’s Coach of the Year award is named after Cote, an honor bestowed upon him after he “retired” two years ago. “I’m concerned he might come back and win his own award,” joked South Portland girls’ coach Mike Giordano. “He’s a great fit for Scarborough. The quality of kids there will match his intensity. He’ll demand a lot and I’m sure they’ll give it to him. His kids will play hard and with a lot of class. We’re fortunate to have him back in the league.” Cote feels his familiarity with the league’s coaches and ADs gives him an advantage. He doesn’t expect Scarborough fans to notice many changes between his style and that of Maines, who was The Forecaster’s Coach of the Year last winter. “Our styles are similar,” Cote said. “We’ll play pressure defense and fastbreak offense. I know the girls are coachable, have great attitudes and are competitive. Those qualities fit my philosophy.” Cheverus varsity coach Richie Ashley ALSO : CLEARANCE SALES • COTTAGE FURNITURE • FARM TABLES • ASIAN FURNITURE

said that he learned plenty from Cote last winter and is glad Cote has another shot at a head coaching position. “I’m really happy for him,” Ashley said. “I know he deliberated for some time because he had a real connection with the girls here at Cheverus. Being a head coach is in his blood. It’s a great opportunity for him. “Coaching with him was like having the answers to a test. He’s been through so many battles and has won the majority of them. I saw how diligent he is to his craft. He’s the epitome of what a coach should be. Demanding, but respectful. He gets the most out of the players. He maintains outstanding rapport with the kids. That’s what I respect the most.” With the timing of Maines’ departure and his pending hire, Cote is starting behind the eight ball, but doesn’t view that as an obstacle. “You’d like to have a summer program to put your system in, so there will be a little adjustment, but I think I can get it done,” Cote said. “There will be different language and terminology and we don’t have much time, but I have good, smart athletes and I think they’ll adjust quickly. Hopefully, we can have the same success we had last year. “I missed being the head coach. I enjoyed being at Cheverus. It was a super situation, but I missed running the show and having my own team. Now, I have this opportunity. This will probably be the end of my coaching career.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @foresports.

Playoffs from previous page with 14 shutouts. Top-ranked Scarborough made it 15 in a row Wednesday evening with a ?-? blanking of visiting No. 8 seed Thornton Academy in the Western Class A quarterfinals. The Red Storm, which beat the visiting Golden Trojans, 4-0, Sept. 27, and won the lone prior playoff meeting (2-0 in the 2009 quarterfinals) got goals from ? and ? saves from Hicks. Scarborough is now one shutout away from joining a select national list with 16 successive shutouts (you could argue the Red Storm’s streak is at 18, as last year’s playoff loss to Windham didn’t result from an allowed goal, just one in extra time penalty corners). The Red Storm will host fourth-ranked Westbrook (11-2-2)/fifth-ranked Massabesic (11-3-1) in Saturday’s semifinals (? p.m.). In the regular season, Scarborough handled visiting Westbrook, 2-0, Sept. 5/ Scarborough did not face Massabesic. The Red Storm faced the Blue Blazes in the 2006 quarterfinals (a 2-1 overtime loss) and the 2008 regional final (a 2-1 victory)/ the Mustangs in the 2010 quarterfinals (a 3-1 victory). The Western A Final is Tuesday, at Scarborough. If the Red Storm makes it, it will face either No. 2 Cheverus (14-1) or No. 3 Marshwood (13-2), the reigning regional champion. Scarborough handled the host Stags, 4-0, Sept. 21, and blanked the visiting Hawks, 1-0, Sept. 15. The Class A state final is Saturday, Oct. 27, at the University of Maine in Orono. South Portland finished 3-10-1 and 13th in Western A, but only the top 11 teams made the playoffs. In Western B, Cape Elizabeth had a solid 8-6 regular season, capped by a 2-1 home win over Yarmouth last Wednesday as Jane Coffrin scored both goals. That victory allowed the Capers to finish seventh in the region and host a playoff game for the first time since 2008. Saturday, Cape Elizabeth welcomed No. 10 Oak Hill for a prelim and eked out a 3-2 win. The Capers, who don’t play Oak Hill in the regular season, fell behind 2-0 before the curtain came up on the latest installment of the Lauren Steidl Show. Steidl scored twice late in the first half, including the tying tally after time had expired on a penalty corner. She then delivered the winner in the 37th minute as Cape Elizabeth enjoyed its first postseason victory since 2007. The Capers advanced to play No. 2 Fryeburg in Tuesday’s quarterfinals. The teams split in the regular season, each winning at home (Raiders, 1-0; Capers, 3-0). The teams previously met in the 1981 semifinals (3-0 Cape Elizabeth win), 1982 quarterfinals (a 1-0 Capers’ win in six overtimes), 1988 quarterfinals (a 1-0 Cape Elizabeth triumph), 1998 quarterfinals (a 2-1 Capers’ victory), 2002 quarterfinals (2-0 Cape Elizabeth) and 2005 preliminary round (3-0 Capers), but this time, Fryeburg carried the day. The Capers fell behind early, 2-0, but Steidl set up Hannah Newhall for a goal to cut the deficit to 2-1 at halftime. The Raiders managed to get a third goal in the second half and went on to a 3-1 victory, ending Cape Elizabeth’s season at 9-7.

Playoffs from previous page Maine Conference championship meet at St. Joseph’s College in Standish. The boys were second overall to Falmouth, while the girls came fifth behind Falmouth, Greely, Freeport and Yarmouth. The meet was further broken down into Division I and II. The Capers took part in Division II. The boys were second to Falmouth, while the girls placed fourth behind Greely, Falmouth and Freeport. Individually, the boys were paced by Liam Simpson, who was fourth overall, but second in Division I with a time of 17 minutes, 3 seconds on the 5-kilometer course. Also scoring were Peter Doane (third, 17:14), Justin Guerrette (13th, 18:21), Julian Pelzer (15th, 18:24) and Trevor Ewald (29th, 19:13). “While the results show we finished behind Falmouth, this was one of better races on the year,” said Capers coach Derek Veilleux. “We ran without our No. 3, Kyle Kennedy, and No. 4, Will Britton, but got great races up front from Liam and Peter and freshman Justin Guerrette had his breakout race of the season. Also, Julian Pelzer had his best race of the season, finishing right behind Justin. The race gave the team a lot of confidence heading into this weekend. I challenged them to overcome the adversity and they responded. “We know that this weekend at regionals we will be racing Falmouth again for the top spot, although anything can happen in the postseason. Our goal is to qualify for the state meet. If we win, that would be great.” The top girls’ finisher was Rhoen Fituak (eighth in Division II, 21:41). Also scoring were Ellen Best (ninth, 21:45), Dana Hatton (14th, 22:20), Emma Inhorn (15th, 22:28) and Sarah Long (31st, 23:41). Scarborough and South Portland finished their regular seasons with meets against traditional rivals. The Red Storm was at Gorham (along with Bonny Eagle, Westbrook and Windham). The boys were first, while the girls placed third behind Bonny Eagle and Windham. Individually, Brendan Hall was tops on the boys’ side with a time of 16:58. For the girls, Marisa Agger placed fifth with a time of 20:08. The Red Riots joined Cheverus, McAuley and Portland at Deering. The boys were third behind the Stags and Rams. Gavin Damian-Loring was fifth individually (17:48). The girls finished runner-up to Cheverus. Nyajock Pan was second to Stags’ standout Shannon Conley with a time of 19:57. The regional championships meet is Saturday at Twin Brook Recreation Center in Cumberland. The Class A boys’ meet begins at 10 a.m. The girls go at 10:35 p.m. Cape Elizabeth’s boys run at 12:30 p.m. The girls begin at 1:05 p.m. The state meet is Saturday, Oct. 27 at Belfast. The New England championships are in Maine this year, Nov. 10, back at Twin Brook.
Boys’ soccer Three of four local boys’ soccer teams will take part in the postseason. Leading the way once again is Scarborough, which finished 12-0-2 after downing visiting Biddeford (4-0) and Marshwood (3-0) to wrap up the regular season. Against the Tigers, Trevor Sparda scored three times and Austin Downing added a goal. In the win over the Hawks, Sparda scored twice and Dan Ornstein had
the third goal. The Red Storm’s eight-year run as the top seed in Western Class A came to an end, barely, as it finished slightly behind Gorham in second. Scarborough will host either No. 7 Windham (10-4), the defending state champion, or red-hot No. 10 Portland (6-7-1) in a quarterfinal round game Wednesday. The Red Storm handled the Bulldogs, 6-1, in Portland, Sept. 11, and blanked the visiting Eagles, 4-0, Sept. 29. South Portland produced another strong year, going 8-3-3 after finishing with a 3-2 loss at Portland, a 1-0 home victory over Thornton Academy and a 2-0 home win over Marshwood. In the loss, Robert Graff and Ahmed Suja scored. Suja had the lone goal against the Golden Trojans and Danny Fox and Caleb Elsemore scored against the Hawks. The Red Riots earned the No. 6
seed and will host No. 11 Noble (8-6) in the preliminary round Friday or Saturday. The teams didn’t play in the regular season. A victory in the prelim would send South Portland to third-ranked Greely (10-4) for the quarterfinals Wednesday. The teams don’t play in the regular season. Cape Elizabeth overcame a 2-5-1 start and finished on a 5-0-1 surge to wind up 7-5-2, good for the No. 8 seed. The Capers closed by handling host Sacopee (5-1) and Gray-New Gloucester (4-0), before settling for a 1-1 home tie with defending Class C champion Waynflete. Against the Hawks, Eli Breed, Cam Caswell, Maam Fall, Eddie Galvin and Griffin Thoreck all had goals. continued next page Cape Elizabeth’s Liam Simpson had the fourthbest time at last weekend’s Western Maine Conference championship meet.

Charlie Laprade scored twice, while Fall and Omar Khalidi also tickled the twine in the win over the Patriots. Monday, against the Flyers, a 25-yard free kick from Thoreck in the first half put Cape Elizabeth on top, but Waynflete answered in the second half and game wound up deadlocked, 1-1. “We’ve gotten much, much better through the season,” said Capers coach Ben Raymond. “The kids definitely got better. We’re a much different team than last year. We play much more of a team game and defend really well. We grew into ourselves and the kids figured it out. Everyone knows their role at this point. The kids have adjusted well.” Cape Elizabeth will host No. 9 Marshwood (8-5-1) in a preliminary round game Saturday. The teams don’t play in the regular season. If victorious, the Capers will go top-ranked Gorham (12-0-2) for the quarterfinals Wednesday. The teams don’t meet in the regular year. In Western D, Greater Portland Christian School finished 6-8 and ninth in the Heals, but only seven teams make the playoffs. The Lions closed with a 13-2 victory at Highview Christian and a 4-1 home loss to Buckfield. Against Highview, Ethan Spaulding had four goals and Eddie Daigneault, David Davol, Byeong Woo Jung and Eric Pearson each had two. Spaulding also had four assists, tying the school record. Spaulding had the lone goal against Buckfield. He finished the year with 11 goals and 11 assists and was involved in 22 of the team’s 40 goals on the season.
On the girls’ side, two-time defending regional champion Scarborough ended the regular season 12-1-1 to earn the No. 3 spot in the Western A standings, just ahead of Cape Elizabeth. The Red Storm closed with victories over host Westbrook (7-0), visiting Biddeford (20) and host Massabesic (2-0) to finish the year with a 51-3 goals differential. Against the Blue Blazes, Sarah Martens had three goals and Jess Meader added a pair. Meader and Hadlee Yescott had the goals against the Tigers. In the win over the Mustangs, Meader scored again. Scarborough will host either No. 6 Sanford (10-3-1) or No. 11 Marshwood (6-7-1) in the quarterfinals Tuesday. In the regular season, the Red Storm won, 3-0, at the Hawks Sept. 5 and didn’t face the Spartans. South Portland eked out the 13th and final playoff spot with a 5-9 record. The Red Riots closed with losses at Thornton Academy (8-0) and Marshwood (3-1) sandwiched around a 1-0 home triumph over Portland. Jenacee Bradbury had the goal and Emma Russell made eight saves in the victory. South Portland will visit No. 4 Cape Elizabeth (12-1-1) in the preliminary round Friday. The teams didn’t square off in the regular season. The Capers completed their best season in a decade with wins at home over GrayNew Gloucester (1-0) and at Waynflete (6-0). Kathryn Clark had the goal against the Patriots. In the win at the Flyers, Clark set the tone just 83 seconds in with a goal and by halftime, Clark had scored again and freshman

Kate Breed also tickled the twine to give the Capers a commanding 3-0 lead. Six minutes into the second half, Clark scored her third goal and later in the half, freshmen Morgan Wight and Katherine Briggs got in on the act with goals, as Cape Elizabeth cruised. “It’s so surprising,” said Clark. “Coming into the season, I didn’t want to be down on us, but I didn’t think we’d get anywhere close to where we were last year. We had five freshmen coming in. They didn’t know how to handle high school soccer. They’ve proven themselves. Our whole team has proven ourselves. I think we’re a much better team this year.” “We’ve come a long way,” said Capers coach Luke Krawczyk. “I wanted to do well in the regular season and we were brilliant. We finished with a better record than last year. We win the conference again. It was great development for the girls. It was a great year for the program. Our first team did really well. JV went unbeaten.” Cape Elizabeth likes its chances entering the postseason. “It’s tough because we don’t know what to expect,” Clark said. “We played some of those teams like Scarborough in the summer. It’s always hard shifting, but we’re confident. If we put our minds to it, I think we can go far. We don’t adjust according to what other teams play. We just try to play our game. Coach says we do the bad things well. We’re scrappy. We know 50-50 balls can determine games.” “I want to play (the SMAA teams),” Krawczyk said.. “We’ve earned the right to compete against those teams. We’ll see what happens. They’ll be older than us and they may have some better players than us,

but we want the opportunity to play them. Playoffs are a lottery. I’m not a big fan of it. Where I’m from (Peterborough, England), you win the league and that’s it. It comes down to nerves. Who takes a chance. We hope to give a good account of ourselves and enjoy it.” In Western D, GPCS finished 0-10 and seventh (only five teams make the playoffs) after falling, at home to Vinalhaven (5-2) and Buckfield (3-0).
Cape Elizabeth’s nascent volleyball program earned its first playoff berth. The Capers finished 5-9 after a 3-0 home loss to defending Class A state champion Greely and a 3-0 home win over Cheverus Friday, in what was essentially a play-in game. Cape Elizabeth earned the No. 8 spot in the region and hosted No. 9 Windham (4-10) in the preliminary round Thursday. The Capers won, 3-0, at the Eagles, Oct. 6. If Cape Elizabeth advanced, it will go top-ranked Biddeford (14-0) for the quarterfinals Saturday. In the regular season, the Capers lost, 3-0, Aug. 31, at the Tigers. Scarborough finished 10-4 after dropping a five-set (22-25, 25-17, 26-24, 19-25, 1015) home decision to Gorham Friday. As a result, the Red Storm slipped to the No. 6 spot and will go third-ranked Ellsworth (122) for the quarterfinals Saturday. The teams didn’t play in the regular season. The playoffs continue Wednesday with the semifinals and the state matches are Saturday, Oct. 27, at Husson College in Bangor. The Class B match is at 5 p.m. The Class A match begins at 7 p.m. Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @foresports.

Out & About
‘Good People’ opens season at Good Theater By Scott Andrews Drama, music and dance are all represented in this week’s picks of the tix in southern Maine. Under the rubric of drama there’s the New England premiere of David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Good People,” the season-opening show at Portland’s Good Theater. And “Good People” is way more than good; it’s great. Two top-notch musical events are slated for this weekend. Laura Kargul, one of Maine’s favorite classical pianists, plays a recital of Romantic sonatas in Gorham on Friday. The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra opens its 2012-2013 season with a pair of concerts in Lewiston on Saturday and Topsham on Sunday. And looking ahead to the end of the month, Portland Ballet will offer two performances of its annual “Halloween Spooktacular” in Westbrook on Oct. 27.
‘Good People’ Engineers tell us that the triangle is the most stable geometric form, employing terms such as “invariant under stress.” But writers and dramatists have long known that the romantic triangle is one of life’s most unstable forms, prone to messy collapse under stress. The tensions caused by an unusual romantic triangle in extremely stressful economic and social circumstances is the driving dynamic behind David Lindsay-Abaire’s latest drama, “Good People.” Portland’s Good Theater, the city’s top-notch professional company, has mounted a fine production of this excellent script as the opening show in its 11th season.
Plus there’s excellent support from three others: Jesse Leighton, Suzanne Rankin and Amy Roche. Director Brian P. Allen, Good Theater’s co-founder and artistic director, helms this production admirably. Good Theater presents “Good People” at the St. Lawrence Arts Center, 76 Congress St. (top of Munjoy Hill) in Portland through Nov. 4. For ticket info and full performing schedule, call 8835-5883 or visit goodtheater.com.
Denise Poirier, James Hoban and Noelle Lusane form a very unconventional romantic triangle in David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Good People,” which opens the 2012-2013 season at Portland’s Good Theater.
The two contrasting settings reflect the social and economic tension: the gritty neighborhood of South Boston and posh suburban Chestnut Hill. The principal character is a single mom who has lived in Southie all her life, while her former high school lover has become a very successful doctor who now lives in a big house in the wealthy suburb. After a hiatus of nearly two decades, the two confront each other. Plus there’s a major complication: the doctor’s strained relationship with his elegant black wife, who hails from an equally posh background in Washington, D.C. Emotional fireworks explode, ignited by fine performances by the three principals: Denise Poirier and James Noel Hoban, who both hail from southern Maine, and Noelle LuSane, a New York actress.
Offering an experience that translates to a fascinating life, students at L'Ecole Française du Maine are totally immersed in the French language and culture, guided by native French speaking teachers. Suzuki music. Theater. Chorus. The world is your child's stage.
November 3rd, 2012 at 3pm RSVP if you can attend, or call to schedule a visit.
One of my personal red letter dates on Maine’s performing arts calendar is the almost-annual recital given by Laura Kargul, longtime professor of piano studies at the University of Southern Maine School of Music. Kargul is a virtuoso performer with wide experience in this country and Europe. Her 2012 recital will be part of the school’s Spotlight Series, scheduled for Oct. 19 in Gorham. Kargul’s specialty is the Romantic Era, and for this Friday’s concert she’s picked two of the biggest and best-known masterpieces from that rich tradition: Franz Schubert’s Sonata in B-Flat Major and Frederic Chopin’s Sonata in B Minor. “I have chosen these particular works because they so fully embody the mature styles of Schubert and Chopin, two composers with whom I feel an extremely strong connection,” Kargul explained. “These are their last sonatas, and they were written within only 16 years of each other. But Schubert and Chopin are so vastly different in character, culture and their use of musical language that these works seem worlds apart. What they do share is a profound metaphysical quality, manifested in meditative, highly expressive passages, contrasting with dramatic outbursts of great exuberance and fire. “It’s always interesting to hear how post-Beethoven composers handled the sonata, that most classical of forms. Beethoven’s impossibly high standard cast a shadow far into the 19th century. Some composers were intimidated, but not Schubert and Chopin. They embraced their innate Romantic sensibilities and made the sonata truly new and fascinating, poetic, exciting and stunningly beautiful. Hearing these two monumental works back to back can be enlightening, inspiring, and, most of all, moving.” Catch this concert at 8 p.m. Oct. 19 at Corthell Hall, on the University of Southern Maine’s Gorham campus. Call the music box office at 780-5555.
Midcoast Symphony Orchestra 99 Freeport Road, South Freeport, Maine 04078
(207) 865-3308 www.efdm.org
Accredited by the French Ministry of Education and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
The Midcoast Symphony Orchestra opens its 21st season this weekend with two performances of a program intriguingly titled “Arabian Nights and Parisian
Afternoons.” Music director Rohan Smith will be on the podium and guest artist George Lopez will be the piano soloist on the showcase number, which is Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Lopez and Smith are frequent collaborators; the former is the artist in residence at Bowdoin College. Beethoven wrote the concerto for his own performance. Its trills and arpeggios remind us that he was a virtuoso performer as well as the greatest composer of his time. Two pieces from the 19th century’s Romantic-Nationalistic tradition follow. Russian composer Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” is adapted from the “Tales of 1001 Arabian Nights,” and tells the story of a young princess who mesmerizes a sultan with her storytelling abilities. It also illustrates RimskyKorsakov’s amazing abilities at orchestration. French composer Claude Debussy’s “Afternoon of a Faun” is characterized by lush melodic sensuality. Two performances are scheduled: Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Franco-American Heritage Center at St. Mary’s (corner of Chestnut and Oxford) in Lewiston, and Oct. 21 at 2:30 p.m. at the Orion Performing Arts Center at Mt. Ararat Middle School in Topsham. Call the MSO at 846-5378.
Terpsichorean witchcraft and some “cadaverous costumes” are on the bill of fare when Portland Ballet presents its annual Halloween Spooktacular Oct. 27. Six original dances are slated, all with Halloween or “creepy” themes. Five were created by Nell Shipman, associate artistic director of Portland Ballet, while one was choreographed by Andrea Tracy. All promise a humorous, offbeat and familyfriendly view of Halloween traditions. Selections include “Masquerade,” with music by Dmitri Shostakovich, and “In the Witches’ Classroom,” based on a composition by Modest Mussorgsky. Performers comprise students and faculty at Portland Ballet. Student dancers include some of the company top preprofessionals, members of the CORPS program. Children are emphatically invited, and a scary costume parade is scheduled at intermission. Portland Ballet presents “Halloween Spooktacular” at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center (at the new middle school), 471 Stroudwater St. in Westbrook. Call PortTix at 842-0800 or Portland Ballet at 772-9671. Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/138557

the law. “It’s the people’s business,” she said Saturday during a round table discussion with reporters and editors at the Maine Press Association’s fall conference at the Hilton Garden Inn in Freeport. “If you cannot get that information, then we are not meeting our common goal.” Three characteristics outline the new role for Kielty: independence, impartiality and a credible review process. “Without those three things ... it can really undo the effectiveness of the position,” she said.
Mal Leary, editor of Capitol News Service, said he has fought for the ombudsman position since the first study on freedom of access in Maine was commissioned in 2002. He is optimistic about the position’s future impact. “The real thrust of the position is to have somebody in government who can run interference for the average citizen,” Leary said, noting that now the law is used most regularly by journalists and lawyers. “There’s no one there to really just help the average Joe find something.” Leary, president of the Maine Freedom of Information Coalition and a member of the state’s Right to Know Advisory Committee, said the office should also help resolve disputes and hopes it will help find alternatives to expensive litigation. One of the challenges Leary sees for Kielty is her shift from public information officer to a public access ombudsman.
“She has to change from being an AG staff who responds to records, to an ombudsman who advocates for records,” Leary said. “It’s a tough thing for her to do because she may have to work against her colleagues, who may not want something released. I’m waiting to see how she handles that situation,” Kielty said she doesn’t see the difficulty, and her previous work experience as a mediator and as a public information officer make her well-equipped to resolve public access disputes. “The benefit to me is that as a public information officer I’ve had the opportunity to see (Freedom of Access Act) questions from the point of view of an agency, and from the press and the public,” she said. Although Kielty was appointed by the attorney general and continues to work in that office, she said the ombudsman’s office will be completely independent. “I’m like another animal that’s not like anybody else. I’m going to work extremely hard to maintain impartiality and not be jeopardized,” she said. “Maybe some other PIO might not be able to make the shift, but I don’t think it’s going to be different at all. It’s been perfect training.”
Hopes, responsibilities The position was originally created by the Legislature in 2007, but was unfunded until earlier this year when two bills, one from the Legislature and one from the governor, appropriated funding. Sen. Richard Rosen, R-Bucksport, was a major advocate and supported the
legislation to create the position. Rosen said he sees the position playing an important role in mediating public access disputes and hopes the new ombudsman will save taxpayers money by reducing litigation costs. “It’s certainly my hope and expectation that the position will be useful and will be helpful for both government and anyone that’s submitting a request for information,” Rosen said. “It will make the statute work better and will help resolve things to end up with a more satisfactory solution.” According to the statute, the job has several responsibilities, including mediating disputes over public access between citizens and government; educating the public about public access laws and procedures; response to informal inquires by the public and public agencies; issuing advisory opinions about interpretation of public access laws, and recommending how to improve access to public records and proceedings. The ombudsman will also field complaints and questions from any state or municipal agency, including police departments. Judy Meyer, managing editor/days at the Sun Journal newspaper in Lewiston, said filling the ombudsman position is an exciting development. She said she hopes it will “streamline” the public records request process and give citizens better access to their government. “What’s happening now is that we are getting calls from citizens asking us to intervene,” said Meyer, vice president of the Maine Freedom of Information Coalition and a member of the Right to Know Advisory Committee. “The people

Now they’ll have Brenda.” One of the difficulties Kielty will face in her new position, Meyer said, is not only keeping up with the evolution of the law, which has changed significantly in the last decade, but also knowing the more than 300 exemptions. “(The Freedom of Access Act) is not a static thing she can learn and be done learning,” Meyer said. “She seems dedicated to learning this really quickly. I’m looking forward to seeing her work with Maine people.” In addition to fielding access questions from agencies and the public, the Legislature also intends for the ombudsman to collect data on public access, such as the number of requests and complaints filed, and which groups filed them. This information must be in available in an annual report submitted by the ombudsman to the Legislature no later than March 15, according to the statute. As a one-woman show, still building the foundations of the new office, Kielty will no doubt be busy. But she said she prefers it that way. “It really is about being available,” Kielty said. “I do expect my phone will be ringing.” Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ theforecaster.net.

Sewer rates from page 1
revenues from $2.6 million this year to $3.2 million next year. Fixed costs for the district include about $1 million on loan payments. The district collects and treats waste water from about 4,500 total accounts using 70 miles of gravity-fed lines, and 25 miles of lines fed by 23 pumping sta-
tions. The treatment facility is on Black Point Road. The district has expanded lines to the Haigis Parkway area in anticipation of development that has slowed in the last five years. Hughes said revenue growth was about 3 percent annually until five years ago and is about 1 percent annually now. Waste-water flow has also remained constant at about 1.2 million gallons

daily, or 450 million gallons annually. Hughes said carging residential accounts a flat quarterly fee is likely less expensive than shifting to metered service for several reasons. First, the district would have to buy monthly data from the Portland Water District for its own billing. Also, because
some residential accounts use irrigation systems, Hughes said those would require sub-meters and staff time to read them. â€œIt gets convoluted and complex quickly,â€? Hughes said. â€œThe bottom line is, it would increase the residential sewer bill because of data collection costs.â€?

from page 1 vers. “This is the best form of advertising,” Dunbar said. “It’s the hardest job in the store. There are out there baring their souls.” On the other side of the Maine Turnpike on Tuesday, Robert Richardson staked out a spot at the corner of Maine Mall and Gorham roads, wearing a fluorescent green, inflatable clown suit adorned with a white mask streaked with garish red facial features. “This one is my favorite,” Richardson said. “It’s colorful, people notice you in it.” The two men are staples this year, Dunbar said – dependable, energetic and very visible. “Brian and Robert are upper echelon,” she said. “You have to be a bit of an entertainer, have stamina and be patient.” For nine years, Dunbar has relied on wavers to draw notice to the store, which opens annually from early September through early November in available locations. Spirit Halloween is a national chain that sells online and in stores; Dunbar also operated stores in Waterville and Bangor. She said she finds ready applicants each year for wavers, who work on sunny days and are given the option to work in light rain. But too often, she said, the people hired find out it is not for them. Dunbar has tried it herself, and she knows it is not for everyone.
DaviD Harry / THe ForecasTer
Portland resident Robert Richardson greets motorists at Gorham and Maine Mall roads in South Portland on Tuesday afternoon while promoting nearby Spirit Halloween. After dressing previously as a gorilla and a pirate, he said he prefers the clown suit.
“The sign gets heavy, it gets windy,” she said. “It’s not just the danger of the traffic; you are open to applause or ridicule.” After enduring hires who napped on the job or were caught texting when they should be waving, and one person who rejected about 10 costumes before deciding he had “image issues,” Dunbar said she knows who works best to deliver the store message.
“My favorite would be to hire a mime,” she said. Robinson and Richardson said the response they receive is mostly positive – a friendly wave or honk of a horn. Frequent shoppers at Target Plaza on Running Hill Road are likely to greet Robinson as a friend, he said. His response is the same for negative gestures or comments, he said. “I just keep laughing,” he said. Richardson has worked temporary jobs as a laborer and said being a waver is easier, and there is always a choice of costumes to wear. South Portland resident Rachel Kimball said she and her two children have shopped at Spirit Halloween several times. “They love it. They wave, and it makes the car rides easier when we can play spot the character,” she said as they looked over props, wigs and makeup. Being a waver is not a job all customers think they would want. Saco resident Tatum LeClair said she loved seeing Robinson dressed as a pirate. “But I’d feel really weird,” she added. Robinson said he worked as a waver in Auburn in the past. “I killed it,” he said. “I had the parking lot full of people.” David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Town plans $235K for Fort Williams Park improvements CAPE ELIZABETH — The town is proposing to expand parking and make access improvements at Fort Williams Park in accordance with the park master plan. At a Planning Board meeting Tuesday night, landscape architect John Mitchell presented permitting plans for four projects that include the addition of 25 new spaces to the Ship Cove Parking area, upgrades to the picnic areas and improvements to the traffic and pedestrian flow. The most significant change would add a cul-de-sac to improve turning space and increase the parking spaces to 72, Mitchell said. The proposal also plans to add a paved walkway to the parking lot and make it wheelchairaccessible . The concrete slab in the picnic area, which is cracked and broken in certain areas, would also be replaced, and a handrail would be installed. According to the proposal, two intersections, at Powers and Ocean roads and Wheatly and Ocean roads, would be reconfigured for better traffic flow and minor improvements would be made to the drainage systems. Although the town is seeking permits for four projects, only three would be completed in the fiscal year, Public Works Director Bob Malley said. The total budgeted cost, which includes construction and soft costs, is about $235,000, Malley said. Funding for the project is generated through the park. A Planning Board public hearing about the projects is scheduled for Nov. 20. — Will Graff
the property in 2004, and would have included a Dunkin’ Donuts, but the project was abandoned due to high construction costs. Neither Concannon nor his wife have restaurant or cooking experience, but they have ideas about the types of food they want to make and hope to hire a kitchen manager who can fulfill them. “We’ll definitely be involved in the day-to-day operations, but we have to realize our strengths and weaknesses in certain areas,” he said. Concannon said the market will probably have four or five full- and part-time employees. Will Graff can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 123 or wgraff@ theforecaster.net.
