South Portland students ask for penguins, get art exhibit By David Harry PORTLAND — Chris Sullivan, exhibits director at the Maine Children’s Museum and Theatre, said he had never seen so many letters requesting a new exhibit until he started receiving letters from students at South Portland’s Waldo T. Skillin Elementary School about a habitat for live penguins at the museum. “We view ourselves as an organization serving the community,” Sullivan said. “To have the students express themselves was unusual and inspirational.” Even though the museum couldn’t satisfy the students’ requests – “there were husbandry issues,” Sullivan said – their pleas did not go all for naught. The student’s letters and drawings are now exhibited at the museum, with photos of real penguins taken by Sullivan’s uncle, Brian Sullivan. On Monday, the letter writers and their classmates got the first glimpse at the exhibit called “Penguins in Portland.” The public can see the display through Nov. 12.

Few details were untouched by the students who asked for live penguins. Aiden Lee suggested museum staff could hatch penguin eggs if needed. Lilli Sanville said museum staff would “need rocks – big rocks” for a penguin habitat. Liam Curran said the exhibit would save people money because they would not have to visit the New England Aquarium in Boston. Skillin Principal Lucretia Bagley, who dressed as a hippopotamus and danced on the school roof in June 2011 after students exceeded reading goals, arrived at the museum Monday with a smile – but no costume. She continued to beam as she talked about student reaction to Sullivan’s work. “They were all thrilled, and the parents are thrilled to be chaperons,” Bagley said. Brian Sullivan’s photos are part of his work documenting the 20 known species of penguins, including four species mentioned by students for inclusion in the exhibit. The student campaign was

Election snapshot: Campaigns disappoint Cape students By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — After months of studying U.S. political history and monitoring political campaigns, a group of motivated Cape Elizabeth High School students has mixed feelings about the upcoming election.

By Will Graff CAPE ELIZABETH — The discussion over how to regulate short-term rentals may finally be approaching a resolution after more than 20 meetings in the last year. At a morning Ordinance Committee meeting Wednesday, Town Councilors agreed to move drafted language for the revised short-term rental ordinance to the Nov. 14 council meeting. The ordinance has been through several revisions in recent months between the Ordinance Committee, Planning Board and Town Council. The aim of the ordinance is to deter renters from disrupting neighborhoods and crowding streets with overflow parking. Town Councilor David Sherman said Wednesday that he is comfortable with the ordinance as it’s drafted and that it’s time

South Portland farmers market still a work in progress By David Harry SOUTH PORTLAND — As city councilors concluded their first fall workshop on the future of the city’s farmers markets, Councilor Tom Blake assessed the progress made over the last two years. “We are on a learning curve here,” he said. “It just happens to be a really long curve.” The curve will continue through at least one more workshop as the outdoor

market wraps up its season this week on Hinckley Drive and the indoor market at the former Hamlin School opens at Sawyer and Ocean streets. Councilors also decided to meet with applicants to fill a School Board vacancy, and expressed near-unanimous support for Question 1 on the statewide November ballot. In the workshop Monday, councilors grappled with where the outdoor market

should be based and who should be allowed to sell goods and services. Caitlin Jordan, the Cape Elizabeth town councilor who also serves as head of the South Portland Farmers Market Association, said the existing interpretation of the ordinance governing who is eligible to sell at the outdoor market is too narrow. Market guidelines require vendors to have grown or processed at least 75 percent of a food or farm product. Councilors including Rosemarie De Angelis noted the governing ordinance is the same one used by the state in its definition, but Jordan argued applications are turned down by city Code Enforcement Officer Pat Doucette on a narrow reading of the phrase. Jordan’s call for re-examining definitions of who can sell at the market was echoed by Lowell Street resident David Orbetan, who was not allowed to offer knife sharpening services this year. Marianne Russo, owner of city-based Nellie’s Teas, said she has been allowed

to sell at the indoor market and wants to be part of next year’s outdoor market. “Maybe we can sit down and figure out why things aren’t processed,” Jordan said. Mayor Patti Smith called the session “a launching pad for moving forward,” and said she is willing the let the market association have a larger say in determining the market location. But Jordan and Town & Country Credit Union CEO David Libby disagreed on the merits of this year’s Hinckley Drive market. Jordan said the stretch of Hinckley Drive bordering Mill Creek Park worked well, despite construction work in Knightville throughout the summer. Libby said closing Hinckley Drive on Thursday afternoons caused problems for credit union customers on one of the busiest banking days of the week. Libby said he got at least 12 complaints from customers about a lack of access to the credit union, although it can be reached, as Jordan noted, from Thomas Street. No location has been chosen for next year, but councilors did reach a consensus that the market should be on a hard surface, as opposed to inside Mill Creek Park, because of potential damage to sod if it rains on market days.

School Board vacancy

Councilors agreed to host a special meeting to consider six applicants to fill the School Board seat vacated when Jeffrey Selser resigned last month. Selser resigned to coach seventh-grade soccer. He is barred by state law from coaching and simultaneously serving on

Six candidates seek 3 Scarborough Town Council seats By David Harry SCARBOROUGH — Turnover in the Town Council will continue this year as six candidates seek three seats and one incumbent seeks re-election. Councilor Jessica Holbrook of Beech Ridge Road is seeking a second three-year term, while veteran Councilor Carol Rancourt cannot seek a fourth consecutive term because of local term limits. Running with Holbrook for the two seats with three-year terms are Paul Andriulli of Two Rod Road, Forest Street resident Ed Blaise and Christopher Coon of Meeting House Road. The election to replace former Councilor Karen D’Andrea, who resigned in August, and serve the remaining two years of her term is between Morning

Street resident Bill Donovan and Kate St. Clair of Woodfield Drive. Scarborough Town Council seats are elected townwide and without party affiliation. St. Clair Coon, 45, and St. Clair, 35, are running for elected office the first time. Andriulli, 56, missed winning a council seat in 2011 by 79 votes. Donovan, 65, and Blaise, 69, Coon served on school boards in New Hampshire and Vermont, respectively. Andriulli, a contractor, is married to Toni Andriulli. A 26-year town resident,

Scarborough School Board, Sanitary District races uncontested SCARBOROUGH — Two newcomers and a veteran School Board incumbent are virtually assured election to the three, three-year seats available this year. Jacquelyn Perry, who has served on the School Board at various times since 1977, is joined on the Nov. 6 ballot by newcomers Donna Beeley and Chris Caiazzo. Perry, of Black Point Road, is a former physical education teacher. She is seeking her third consecutive term and has also served on the building committee for the new Wentworth Intermediate School. The school is expected to be opened to third- through fifth-graders in time for the 2014-2015 school year.

Beeley, of Gunstock Road, has lived in Scarborough for 33 years and was a teacher, guidance counselor and administrator for 38 years. She retired two years ago after working in seven school systems in three New England states. She last served as principal at Memorial School, a K-2 school in New Gloucester. Caiazzo is a political newcomer and Elmwood Avenue resident. He is a trained engineer who sells equipment like exhaust systems to power plants. He said he is running because he opposed high school students parking fees instituted last month. He added he would like to improve communication between the board and community so the entire town

has a better understanding of spending and policy decisions made by the board. School Board member Jane Wiseman filed nomination papers, but withdrew from the race about two days after the Sept. 5 filing deadline. Board Chairman Robert Mitchell decided not to seek reelection. Incumbents Ben Viola and Nick Ricco are unopposed as they seek new threeyear terms as trustees of the Scarborough Sanitary District. The quasi-public agency oversees collection and treatment of waste water at its Black Point Road plant. Viola, a 30-year resident of town, is an environmental engineer at the Maine

Department of Environmental Protection’s Portland office. Ricco serves as district engineer for the Kennebunk Sewer District. The Scarborough district maintains and operates about about 70 miles of gravity-fed sewer lines and 23 miles of lines fed by 23 pumping stations while serving about 4,500 accounts. Viola said the district is not planning any expansions in the near future. A plan to raise usage rates from $82.50 to $99 per quarter for residential accounts was discussed at an Oct. 25 public hearing. If approved by trustees, the new rates will take effect Jan. 1, 2013. — David Harry

from previous page children born prematurely. In a year where the candidates said the there are no “hot-button” issues, taxation and spending are resonant themes. Four of six candidates said they support the town referendum to spend up to $900,000 for a new ladder truck for the Black Point Road fire station. The bond question anticipates a total repayment of $1.08 million in principal and interest over the next 20 years at 2 percent

interest. Blaise said he is unconvinced the cost is justified. “I don’t see why we should spend $1 million for a truck that will depreciate 30 percent to 40 percent in three or four years,” he said. At a Oct. 11 forum, Coon said he was undecided about the sole local referendum question on the ballot. Andriulli’s support is experience-



based. “You want to know the truck under you is safe,” he said. Donovan and Blaise said they are committed to keeping property tax increases equal to or under the rate of inflation. “A lot of people are neither rich or poor and own the vast majority of houses and pay the vast majority of taxes,” Donovan said. Blaise and Coon vowed to bring their management and accounting skills to council chambers. “I will spend time thinking and woncontinued page 34

COMMON SENSE SAYS TO VOTE NO ON QUESTION #1! Marriage is not about hatred, bigotry and homophobia. Rather, marriage is about identifying, reinforcing and preserving a diverse and healthful sexual foundation for traditional marriage. Pillars of sameness were never intended to be used to balance the foundation of marriage. Marriage has to do with sexual expression and when sexual expression is between a faithful husband and a faithful wife, diseases will not filter into society. To better insure that there will be sexually disease free candidates for marriage, the public schools have worked with youth and their parents to implement programs with the intent of keeping sexually transmitted diseases out of the institution of marriage and society. Unfortunately, teaching safe, same gender sexual expression falls within the realm of teaching youth how to smoke safely.

I choose Amy Volk as candidate for re-election in House District 127 in Scarborough. Amy acquired valuable experience dealing with state legislation when she served in her first term as representative, gaining respect from the public as well as lawmakers and government officials. Amy is pro-business. She has an impactful track record of initiating and supporting legislation aimed at leveraging Maine’s resources. As a small business owner herself, Amy understands the hardships facing our community’s business leaders and is motivated to strengthen our business environment. Impressive legislative and business record notwithstanding, I most admire Amy for her selfless volunteer work, generosity, intelligence and dedication to good cause. She puts many hours into making lives better for our youth through educational outreach, community involvement and good old-fashioned hard work. With proud enthusiasm, I support Amy Volk for reelection. Jere G. Michelson Scarborough

Family support for Myrick in District 123 I’m the sister of Kenneth “Jake” Myrick. I’m the oldest of eight children, Jake being child No. 7. He has had to struggle and fight since the moment of his birth. He was born premature, weighting less than two pounds. He lived a childhood full of dysfunction, poverty and parents that struggled with both domestic and alcohol abuse. Jake being the strong fighter and caring person that he is broke that cycle to become the outstanding, hardwork-

ing and considerate human being that he is. After graduating from South Portland High School he enlisted in the Army and served six years, mostly overseas. I believe that Jake is the right candidate for House District 123, South Portland-Cape Elizabeth. He will fight hard for what he believes is best for Maine, such as, lowering property taxes, support for families, children, veterans, small businesses and to reduce wasteful government spending. You will not be disappointed. Tracy Oliver South Portland

Millett in Maine Senate District 7 As someone who has worked with Rebecca Millett for the last 10 years, I was thrilled when she decided to run for state Senate in District 7 – not just because of who she is (brilliant, diligent, approachable, and dedicated), but because I know she will work fiercely for our district. Rebecca has six years of experience as a School Board leader. She advocated for our schools, and spent time working with legislators and school officials from other districts to demand equitable education funding. Her years on the School Board were some of the most trying in recent history: spending caps, divisive special interest groups, threats of school consolidation were just a few of the roadblocks she courageously faced. Rebecca has the support of our local Democratic leaders. Please join me in supporting Rebecca Millett for state Senate. Mary Townsend Cape Elizabeth

I support Melissa Linscott for South Portland City Council. I think she will replace the rancor witnessed at council meetings this past year with a level of dignity and civil discourse between our councilors so that we continue to attract dedicated people to an often thankless position. Most disagree with decisions made by every councilor at least once, but we must try to do so without the negativity and personal attacks that some mistake for passionate conviction. The Linscotts are great Knightville neighbors. Melissa and her husband Brian donate their parking lot for an annual neighborhood yard sale, an October festival, and even for the overflow guests at my wedding held at our home. I believe her business experience, people skills, her work in our school system, and her extensive knowledge of our city’s neighborhoods will make her an excellent city councilor.

She carefully and thoughtfully listens to all citizens on every issue. Councilor De Angelis is always prepared and informed on council business and works tirelessly for the city. Please vote to re-elect Rosemarie to the South Portland City Council. Kathleen E. Hanson South Portland

Hamann in House District 123 This letter is to support Scott Hamann as state representative in District 123. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with Scott several times and find his approach innovative, energetic, and refreshing. His concern for family, education and support for the middle class is consistent with his approach to job creation. Scott understands the benefits of the arts community with the jobs and profits that ensue. He understands the needs of small business. Scott has the right approach on all the issues that will affect us over the coming years and has the ability to act in a bipartisan manner to get the work done. Support Scott Hamann in District 123.

Volk is too far right for Scarborough Amy Volk is too extreme for Scarborough. In a town that takes great pride in its school system, Volk proposed legislation that would pay parents (out of tight school budgets) to send their children to religious schools. She sponsored far right-wing ALEC-inspired legislation to create virtual charter schools (funded

October 26, 2012

from already stressed school budgets). Virtual charter schools have proven to be profitable to the owners, not the students. Volk is anti-women and anti-choice, proposing legislation that would have created “personhood” for a fetus. Amy Volk has voted in support of the extreme rightwing tea party administration of Paul LePage 92 percent of the time. This is an appalling record. We cannot stand by and let Volk and LePage ruin Scarborough. Paul Aranson will return Augusta to real Maine values. I’ve already voted for Aranson in District 127. I hope you will too. Matt Powell Scarborough

GOP House candidate backs De Angelis Rosemarie De Angelis has served South Portland as a special education teacher, former mayor, and District 3 city councilor. Her, passion, dedication, and caring nature is a true testament to her continued commitment in making South Portland the greatest city in Maine. As a Republican you would think I would differ with De Angelis on issues concerning our community, but that’s not the case. It is the deep commitment to South Portland that compels us both. She has stood beside me as we honored our fallen Maine heroes and the victims of Sept. 11; she supported the Veterans Service Monu-

ment project and the beautification of Mill Creek Park. I admire Councilor De Angelis for her honesty, and for not being afraid to challenge or tell the truth when confronted with controversial Issues. I’m voting to re-elect her not only because I consider her a friend, but because that what’s best for South Portland. Kenneth Myrick, Republican candidate House District 123 South Portland

Re-elect Morrison in South Portland

There are many great candidates running for the state Legislature; we are very fortunate. However, I think Rep. Terry Morrison exemplifies the quality of candidate we need in the House. Terry has served South Portland well from District 122; he is thoughtful, thorough and committed. His communication with his constituents is incomparable. He communicates with equal dedication to those who are not even in his district, responding to everyone’s concerns. Terry does his homework, understands the issues and puts in an inordinate amount of time and effort, both at home and in Augusta. His most recent anti-bullying bill is one that should be a model for our nation. I am proud to have Terry represent South Portland. His record speaks for itself. Please cast your vote for Terry Morrison for House of Representatives, District 122. Rosemarie De Angelis South Portland

S. Portland rep responds to opponent I would like to clarify a statement from my independent opponent in last week’s southern Forecaster about my vote on MaineCare cuts in the biennium budget. When the governor gave us his biennium budget proposal in the last legislative session, it contained drastic cuts across the board, including MaineCare. My fellow Democrats and I felt these cuts were too deep and hurtful to the citizens of Maine. After many caucuses and proposals sent back and forth between the parties a compromise was reached and passed, but was vetoed by the governor. It is unfair to be criticized for this without a full understanding of the complicated process of negotiating a budget. I would further like to clarify that I firmly believe that health care is a human right, not a privilege, and have worked hard during my time in the Legislature to provide all Mainers with quality, affordable health care. Rep. Terry K. Morrison South Portland

Myrick for S. Portland-Cape House seat I am writing to endorse Kenneth “Jake “ Myrick in House District 123. As a young boy I often tagged alongside U.S. House Speaker “Tip” O’Neil, and through the years served several presidents,vice presidents, and members of Congress. I have been truly honored to have worked with some outstanding leaders. I first met Mr. Myrick while helping

host Sen. McCain’s campaign visit to South Portland. I closely watched Mr. Myrick and soon realized he has the passion, experience and drive of a true leader. Being born and raised in Maine, a decorated veteran, a homeless advocate, and proven civic leader, he is currently athletic director for the Boys and Girls Club, and is a true champion and mentor to our children. Myrick is the hard-working sensible leader and diplomatic voice we need in Augusta. What ever your party affiliation, voting Myrick is the best choice. Stephen Popp South Portland

The Robbie Foundation wants to extend its appreciation and thanks to all of the business owners and members of the community who helped make our first annual Benefit Gala an amazing success. More than 75 people attended the event on Oct. 12 at the Black Point Inn in Scarborough. The event raised $11,000 which will go towards bridging the gap for Maine children and youth with developmental disabilities in Maine. Ninety-five percent of the money raised by RF goes to purchasing adaptive equipment, therapeutic treatments and other services not covered by insurance. In the past two years, the Robbie Foundation has donated more than 20-thousand dollars to families with children with developmental disabilities. Lynn Gierie, founder Robbie Foundation Scarborough

De Angelis is good for South Portland

I have lived in Cape Elizabeth for eight years. I spend time in South Portland because it is a great place and life is good there. And one of the things that makes life good in South Portland is City Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis. I have known her since coming to Maine. Rosemarie is an incredible ambassador for South Portland and Maine. She is bright, effective, and strong in her pursuit of excellence. She listens to and follows-up with her constituents. South Portland needs to re-elect Rosemarie to the City Council. William H. Marshall Cape Elizabeth

Maine has come a long way in becoming more business friendly in the past couple of years. That opens up opportunity for people to have good jobs and to establish lifestyles that are more prosperous and worry free. We need to continue the good work that has been accomplished in Augusta. To do so, we need to elect people who will do what is best for our state and not go to Augusta with an agenda to put us on a path to larger debt with more spending and higher taxes. With that in mind, the South Portland Republican Municipal Committee is putting our support behind the following candidates: Kevin Battle for House District 124, Kenneth Myrick for House District 123, Thomas Sarbanis for House District 122 and Mike Wallace for Senate in District 7.

Our country faces daunting challenges. Uncertainty and brinksmanship from the government have stifled growth, and Maine and the country are still hurting as a result. We need a deficit reduction plan to restore confidence in the economy. We should expand rural broadband access so that rural areas grow and compete in the global Internet economy, because the status quo amounts to an economic death sentence. Social Security and Medicare are critical for older Mainers. Medicare faces an uncertain future and Social Security needs strengthening.There are ways to reform the programs that will ensure their long term sustainability. Challenges aren’t new, and we solved them in the past through compromise and cooperation. Our representatives today, however, confuse “principles” with intolerance. They won’t listen to new ideas or work together. Mainers are frustrated by Congress’s score keeping, and they don’t have time for stalemates. While Democrats and Republicans argue over who is winning, Mainers are losing. The tireless fisherman, farmers, loggers and small business owners of Maine can’t wait for answers. They are being overwhelmed by health-care costs, $4-pergallon gas at the pump, uncertainty, and an anemic economy. But none of this can be fixed if the system designed to make all our lives better is broken, and right now it is. That’s why I’m running for Senate. I’m not naïve or arrogant enough to believe I

can stroll into Washington and change everything overnight. The Senate isn’t waiting for someone to tell them what’s wrong or how they can fix things. But the current system isn’t working, it’s time to try something different and we have to start somewhere. My opponents claim that an independent can’t be effective, and that I can’t accomplish anything without the support of a national party. I’m struck by how familiar those arguments sound – I heard the same things when I ran for governor as an independent. But during my administration we cut taxes, brought unemployment to historically low levels, and fixed our budgets. We shrunk government while increasing productivity, we filled the state’s reserves, and we rebuilt our infrastructure, making repairs that were long overdue. If I am fortunate enough to be elected, I will go to Washington and work across the aisle – I will work with anyone, regardless of party label, who is ready to get to work and bring about solutions that move our country forward. Independence isn’t a liability; in this moment, it’s a tremendous asset. The founding fathers provided us with the Senate to help us confront the issues we face. In short, the world’s greatest deliberative body needs to start deliberating again, and I’d like to contribute to that conversation. Former Gov. Angus King of Brunswick is an independent candidate for U.S. Senate from Maine.

Reject the status quo, reclaim the future By Cynthia Dill One of life’s truer sayings is, “Past is prelude.” It reminds us that our history can be our future, that our past mistakes can be repeated – unless we make deliberate, thoughtful efforts to change course, to chart a new direction, to seek fair winds and following seas. You need a strong champion at the helm these days. Not someone who is more interested in their financial portfolio or political pedigree than in the daily concerns of you and your family. I am running as the Democratic Dill nominee for the U.S. Senate from Maine and I have learned so much in this election season. I would not trade this wonderful experience for anything; it is humbling to talk to Maine people about their troubles and hopes, their worries and dreams for

the future. I have learned that the people I meet and see on the campaign trail are worth fighting for – that your families, children, and shared hopes for tomorrow are the core threads that make our community fabric possible. I have also learned that some forces will stop at nothing and do whatever it takes to grab a U.S. Senate seat. Even if it means buying it with out-of-state money, with the strings of special interest groups visibly attached. I have learned anew what it means to be the underdog, who takes on the big kids, who stands up to the bullies, who follows principle over personal gain. If we don’t learn from our collective past, then we will be doomed to repeat it. The past is not Gov. Paul LePage, who won a crowded race by riding a red tide. The past is not fear and loathing. The past is not something

from which to cower. The past is the status quo. And we can change the status quo and reclaim our future, together. Today, extreme wealth and extreme politics run Congress, and both of my top opponents in this race reflect what’s wrong with Washington. The extremists in the GOP want the government to control people’s personal lives and believe that corporations have the same legal standing as an individual. Charlie Summers, an extreme Republican, is a tea party candidate who denies the existence of climate change and is a devotee of anti-government operative Grover Norquist. Angus King is yet another millionaire who wants to be U.S. senator because it will fill out his professional resume so nicely. Personally, he is out of touch with Maine working families. He likes to say the two-party

Leadership must work for Maine’s working people By Charlie Summers One of Maine’s hallmark industries is struggling, and what they need right now more than anything is leadership. On a recent rainy Thursday night, I drove to Rockland to spend time with some of our lobstermen. The Maine Lobstermen’s Association held a candidates meeting to brief congressional and legislative candidates on the challenges their members are facing, and to address what elected officials can do to help Summers sustain this iconic Maine industry. The challenges faced by our lobster industry are not complex. MLA Executive Director Patrice McCarron and Chairman David Cousens presented a clear case that the industry needs help finding new ways to market their product and developing more cost-effective ways to do business. Maine’s lobster industry has been hit hard, along with the rest of our state, by an economy that’s struggling to rebound from one of the worst recessions in our nation’s history. As gas prices have more than doubled in the last four years, the price Maine’s lobstermen have gotten for their product has plummeted. Any small businessman will tell you making less money with more overhead is a recipe for disaster, and this is the hard reality that confronts our lobster industry every day. A discouraging trend I heard more about is the increasing amounts of our harvest being sent to Canada

for processing, then shipped back to the U.S. for sale. The few lobster processors in Maine simply can’t compete with their Canadian counterparts, who are propped up by the government, and don’t face the same burdensome regulatory and tax environment Maine processors do. This needs to change. We must create an environment in Maine and across the country that will allow our products to be made, processed and distributed right here at home – from start to finish. But this won’t be an easy fix. There is a building consensus that old fashioned American innovation could provide the answer the lobster industry’s problems. One option may be to explore niche markets that yield higher margins, which could make certain lobstermen aren’t spending more in overhead than they’re taking in from rock-bottom prices. The sense of pride we all share in the Maine brand could be reinforced through a creative marketing program that reminds the world the best lobster comes from Maine. Finally we must explore remedies – both in Augusta and Washington – to promote lobster processing right here in Maine while ensuring our Canadian neighbors play by the rules. I asked the lobstermen in Rockland directly what I can do, if elected, in the U.S. Senate to protect and advance the interests of Maine’s lobster industry. Their answer to me was crystal clear: they need their elected officials to stand up for Maine and lead in Washington. Our lobstermen need strong leadership because the issues they face aren’t always cut and dry. Differences of

opinion on key issues like trap limits and fishing seasons continue to exist within the industry. Getting Maine’s lobstermen back on their feet will mean providing the leadership to move the process forward, making sure Mainers know they have a strong advocate fighting for them in Washington. What I saw in Rockland was an industry ready to take matters into their own hands. They are developing a path forward based on a strong-willed self-reliance only Mainers could have; they aren’t looking for the government to come in and magically make it all better. Looking to Washington, our lobster industry simply needs a fair playing field and access to the necessary resources so they can get themselves through this difficult time. I was thrilled for the opportunity to spend a few hours with these hard-working people, and I hope the other candidates also have the opportunity to meet with them. Though the struggles they face are daunting, it was inspirational to see an industry so willing and eager to do the hard work necessary to put themselves back on a path towards prosperity. These are the working people that characterize Maine and will bring America’s economy back to life, and I look forward to providing the leadership they are looking for in the United States Senate.

Electing King will show Maine gets it Let’s get right to it. Maine voters should elect Angus King to the United States Senate. King alone among the candidates possesses the temperament, the profile, and the acumen to advocate effecGlobal tively for Maine people and to continue an important tradition of independent, honorable, mature and centrist representation. King’s positions on the major issues of the day are well-reasoned. He is inquisitive, eager to learn, and has a sincere desire to understand competing views. He is neither ideologue nor demagogue. His centrist approach is particularly needed at this Perry B. Newman time of acrimonious hyperpartisanship. But Mainers should elect him not only because of his moderate stance on the issues. He is the right person, in the right place, at the right time for the right job. He is likely to be effective and his impact will be positive and tangible. Here’s why: • Gravitas. The Senate is a deliberative body whose members possess the awesome power, among other things, to approve or place a hold on lifetime judicial nominations, to ratify treaties, to confirm cabinet appointments, and to

declare war. Senators play an important role in foreign relations, and may be privy to the most sensitive intelligence briefings. King has relevant international and executive experience, as well as the temperament to make wise and considered decisions. Deeply thoughtful and prudent, he would likely be an influential senator even if the Senate was not so closely divided along party lines. • Experience. As an independent governor, King worked effectively with both parties and projected a positive and energetic image of Maine at home and abroad. He knows what it is to govern. He advocated for big ideas, some of which came to fruition (the laptop computer initiative) and some of which did not (the Compact for Maine’s Forests.) Despite King’s eight years as an independent governor, no legislator who served during King’s two terms in office has come forward to disparage his effectiveness or his leadership as governor. That silence – and the tacit respect it reflects – speaks volumes. • Maturity. King conducts himself with polish and professionalism. He listens, considers and decides. His opinions are informed by facts, the opinions of others whose views he respects, and by his own research. He has met and had substantive discussions with presidents, premiers, prime ministers, ambassadors and others whose responsibilities demand a commensurate level of maturity and profile. He is ready for prime time. • Ethics. King has lived and worked in Maine for nearly 40 years. Over the course of a successful career in law, business and government his reputation for integrity remains unquestioned. At a time when our institutions are


10-22-12 to 10-28-12

under siege, the effort to push back against corrupting forces will require a voice of unquestioned ethical propriety. King can be that voice. As a legislator told me years ago, “There’s no chink in that man’s moral armor.” • Judgment. King knows when to speak, when to remain silent, when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em. His major party opponents may be sincere and zealous advocates, but one has to question their judgment. Democratic candidate Cynthia Dill ridiculed President Obama’s big-money fundraising efforts by holding a mock bake sale during the president’s visit to Maine. Republican Charlie Summers famously antagonized Sen. Olympia Snowe by endorsing her tea party rival in the senator’s primary campaign – despite Summers’ having worked for Snowe for years. You can say that these were demonstrations of pluck and independence, or you can call them ill-advised gambits reflecting poor judgment. But neither reflects an approach likely to win cooperation in the Senate. None of this would persuade me to support King, however, if his positions on the issues weren’t reasonable and likely to benefit Maine and the country. He supports marriage equality, is pro-choice on reproductive issues and supports the Affordable Care Act; he refuses to sign a “no tax” pledge because he understands that reducing the debt requires both reductions in spending and increases in revenue; he recognizes the importance of traditional industries, but knows the future depends upon investments in technology and efficiency; he understands continued next page POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT

Dill from page 11 system is broken and that only he can fix it. Which is really convenient, but preposterous on its face. What’s broken in America is the stranglehold that the wealthy and the extreme Republicans have on our democracy, which is starting to more resemble a plutocracy, beholden only to the interests of the super-wealthy and super-connected. But not beholden to you, the average Maine voter. We can change the future by changing the status quo. We can shake off the shackles of financial special interests and Wall Street giants by focusing on the needs of voters over the needs of corporations. We can end the reign of the 1 percent of the super wealthy controlling the 99 percent of the rest of us. But I need your help to get it done. Your vote has the power to make substantive change, to increase the number of women in the U.S. Senate, to elect someone who will fight for your interests. I am your champion. I will push for real change and I will break from the past formula of failure that has besieged our Congress. It’s not about having two political parties; it’s about having our Congress controlled by the pompous, the privileged, the pandering. It is time to remake the Senate, retake the Congress and keep moving America forward, not backward to policies of exclusion and expediency. I will fight for working Americans. I vow to protect Social Security and Medicare, to push for the full implementation of Obamacare and to protect America’s middle-class by securing more jobs, improving education and creating equal opportunities. I represent a new generation of leadership. With your help, I can win this thing. State Sen. Cynthia Dill of Cape Elizabeth is the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate in Maine.

Global Matters from previous page that politically and economically, the world is both asymmetric and interdependent, and that we cannot abdicate our values or our role on the international stage. In short, King gets it. Yet, what may be even more important is that by eschewing the worst of hyper-partisanship, we can in this election show the country that Maine gets it, too. And that, along with Angus King in the U.S. Senate, just might change everything. Perry B.

For love or money shouldn’t matter Lately the media has been indulging in a feeding frenzy over the case of a Kennebunk Zumba instructor who allegedly provided a little extracurricular workout for some of her male clients. The focus of all the prurient public interest has been “The List,” a roster of the woman’s alleged clients. I say “allegedly” and The Universal “alleged” because no one has been convicted of anything, except in the court of public opinion. Presumably, the woman and her male business partner kept a client list and videotaped some of her performances as insurance for when they inevitably got caught. Shame on them for that. A couple of the Edgar Allen Beem alleged johns went to court in an attempt to keep the names on The List from being made public. Should the courts and the press have made the names public? Probably. Protecting the male clients while pillorying the female would be a double standard. But this whole sad side show could have been avoided in a more reasonable world. Prostitution is a victimless crime, or it would be if it were legal. The greatest harm being done in the Kennebunk case is being done by the justice system. All the heartbreak of fathers and husbands misbehaving didn’t need to happen. Yes, the men should have thought of that before they hooked up with a prostitute, but there is no compelling public interest in criminalizing her behavior or theirs. And what’s wrong with a single man paying for services rendered? In a more just world, no one’s name would have been made public, because no one would have been indicted, arrested or charged. Adultery and infidelity may be sins, but they are not crimes. And having sex for money should not be either. Back in the 1980s I spent an illuminating evening accompanying the Portland Police Depart-


ment undercover prostitution unit as they went after johns. A female officer posed as a streetwalker while back-up units waited within eye sight. The fact that she was better looking than any real hooker in Portland should have been a tip-off, but it was like shooting fish in a barrel. An unsuspecting schnook would pull over to the curb, the decoy would ask him what he wanted, a price was agreed upon, and then she’d direct the man to drive into a nearby alley where backups units would swoop down to ruin the guy’s evening, maybe his marriage, possibly even his life. Let me spare the self-righteous Puritans out there the trouble of asking: no, I would not want anyone in my family engaging in prostitution, any more than I would want them using drugs. But that doesn’t mean I think prostitution should be a crime. The Internet is awash in porn. There’s sex and violence like never before on television and in the media. The mainstream media sells sex in the form of endless stories about the Kennebunk Zumba prostitute, even though the alleged behavior only amounts to a bunch of misdemeanors. You’d think Bill Clinton had been caught with his pants down. Sex sells, but you can’t sell sex. Yes, there are legitimate concerns about sexually transmitted diseases, supporting drug habits with prostitution, the exploitation of young women and men cruising for sex in residential neighborhoods. But in more civilized countries where prostitution is legal, it is regulated and sex workers are regularly screened for disease. What I remember most about that night on Deering Street was how dirty and complicit I felt for taking part, for going along as the police arrested an elderly man for expressing a willingness to pay for a pleasure he was not going to get any other way. Bottom line: It’s nobody’s business, especially not the government’s, what two consenting adults do in private, whether it’s for love or money. Shame on anyone who thinks it is.

Cape boys win regional cross country title By Michael Hoffer Five of six local cross country teams qualified for the state championships after strong showings as the regional meet Saturday at Twin Brook Recreation Center in Cumberland. In the Western B boys’ competition, Cape Elizabeth had no peer, tallying 64 points to easily fend off runner-up Falmouth (100) and 13 other teams. The Capers were led by Peter Doane (17 minutes, 28.2 seconds on the 5-kilometer course) and Liam Simpson (17:31.31) who finished third and fourth, respectively. Also scoring were Will Britton (13th, 18:18.74), Kyle Kennedy (18th, 18:35.15) and Justin Guerette (26th, 18:47.58). “We did exactly what we wanted to do,which was qualify for the state meet,” said Cape Elizabeth coach Derek Veilleux.

“Winning the regional title was just an added bonus. The kids executed their race plans and had plenty left over the final mile. The important thing was to get through the meet healthy, which we did. Peter and Liam once again got us the low sticks. Will and Kyle returned from missing the conference meet, they ran well, earning a top 20 finish. Justin and (sixth-place finisher) Julian (Pelzer) worked well together the entire race. “We’ve been working the last 19 weeks to run well at (the state) meet, the team is looking forward to the opportunity. We know that Falmouth wasn’t at full strength last week and we know they will be up for the challenge this weekend. Ellsworth also had a strong day at the Eastern Maine championships. It will take a superior effort to win. I have confidence

that we will give it our best shot on Saturday, we just need to run like we have all year.” The Capers are seeking their first state championship since 2006 in their 11th straight state meet appearance. On the girls’ side, Cape Elizabeth was the sixth and final team to qualify with a team total of 134 points (Falmouth came in first with 66). The Capers, who made it 12 straight trips to states, were paced by Rhoen Fiutak, who was 12th (22:22.11). Also scoring were Ellen Best (19th, 22:42.94), Dana Hatton (22nd, 22:51.31), Emma Inhorn (32nd, 23:36.16) and Emily Lobosco

(49th, 24:31.53). “(The girls) ran good times, but didn’t place where I hoped,” said Cape Elizabeth coach Amber Cronin. “It was really muddy. Our number three runner, Sam Feenstra, was out with an injury, but she’s back for this week. “The seeds have us 11th, but I’d like us to break into the top

10. I’d like the girls to have a great race. It’s a flat course and a fast course and our home course is flat. We’re well suited to run well.” In the Western A boys’ race, two-time defending state champion Scarborough was runner-up to Massabesic (31 points to 64).

Perfect Storm off to state final (Ed. Note: For the full version of this story, with additional photos, please see the Web version at By Michael Hoffer The Perfect Storm rolls on. Next stop, Orono. The 2012 Scarborough field hockey team has erased the heartache of recent early playoff departures by producing a level of dominance this fall so dazzling it is bordering on the historic. After a 14-0 regular season

which featured a jawdropping defensive feat of not a single goal allowed, the Red Storm earned the No. 1 seed and made quick work of No. 8 Thornton Academy (4-0) in the quarterfinals and fourthranked Westbrook (3-0, behind goals from Emily Bunting, Elly Walker and Grace Whelan) in the semis to set up a 1 versus 2 showdown against Cheverus Tuesday evening in the Western Class A Final. continued next page

By Michael Hoffer Two local football teams will open the postseason Friday night, while a third ended its regular season in fine style. Cape Elizabeth will take part in the playoffs for the seventh year in a row after a 3-5 campaign gave the Capers the eighth and final spot in Western Class B. Last Friday, Cape Elizabeth traveled to Mountain Valley and came away with a 32-6 loss. Mountain Valley (3-5) punted on its first series, then scored on three of the next four possessions in the first half to take command. Cape Elizabeth relied on the running of Nick Moulton (80 yards, 19 carries) and Tony Moulton (30 yards, nine carries) throughout the first half. Capers’ QB Noah Wolfinger was 5-for-15 for 62 yards, the longest being a 39 yarder to Cam Wilson in the third quarter. The

84-yard drive was caped off by Nick Moulton diving over from a yard out for Cape Elizabeth’s lone score. “It has been a challenging year in terms of dealing with multiple injuries each and every week,” said Capers coach Aaron Filieo. “Having said that, I continue to be impressed and admire the effort and resilience of this team. Each and every week they set out and achieve competitive greatness. Other than this past weekend we have been in every game with a chance to win.” Cape Elizabeth goes to topranked 7-1 Marshwood for the quarterfinals Friday night. On Oct. 5, the Capers lost at the Hawks, 20-0. This is the teams’ first playoff meeting. “Our record nor the scores of our games mean anything now,” said Filieo. “Everyone is 0-0 and has a shot at advancing. We are ‘business as usual’ and will once

again play hard.” In Western A, Scarborough finished with a 43-18 win at Gorham to wind up 6-2 and third in the region. The Red Storm was up 28-6 at halftime and never looked back. Quarterback Dillon rush had three rushing touchdowns and threw for another to Ben Greenberg. Dan LeClair and Merrick Madden also had rushing TDs. Scarborough will host No. 6 Sanford (5-3) in the quarterfinals Friday at 7 p.m. The teams didn’t play this year and have no postseason history. “We are very excited to be in the playoffs for the third straight year and pleased to have a home playoff game at Scarborough,” said Red Storm coach Lance Johnson. “The team has worked hard and we are playing well in all three phases of the game. The matchup with Sanford is going to be challenging. They continued page 22

Scarborough got the only goal it would need when Bunting scored unassisted. “An early lead was huge,” said Red Storm senior goalie Shannon Hicks. “We were ready to play and it showed by that goal. We kept playing harder and harder and that made Cheverus have to come back.” “You never know how the girls will respond to the crowd, but they came out firing yet again,” said Scarborough coach Kerry Mariello. “(Scoring early) is (Emily’s) niche. That’s her thing now. She’s a hard worker.” Considering the Red Storm hadn’t given up a single goal all season, even a 1-0 lead was daunting, but when Ali Pelczar converted a penalty stroke 10 minutes later, the lead was insurmountable. “I haven’t taken strokes much,” Pelczar said. “I wasn’t thinking about it. It was like practice or warming up before a game and I just shot. Karli-An Gilbert and I are the two people who take them. This is the first stroke we’ve had all year. I wasn’t nervous. I always thought I would be, but I didn’t think about it. I just took the shot.” To its credit, Cheverus didn’t wilt

and instead put a lot of pressure on the Scarborough defense, but despite some good looks, couldn’t break through. Then, with 13:11 left in the game, Abby Walker delivered the coup de grace on a rebound and Scarborough went on to a 3-0 victory. The Red Storm improved to 17-0 on the season, extended its shutout streak to 17 games (further broken down into 1,020 minutes of impenetrable defense), ended the Stags’ fine season at 15-2 and set up a delicious Class A state final showdown Saturday versus undefeated, two-time champion Skowhegan at the University of Maine in Orono (6 p.m. start time). “It feels great,” said Pelczar. “I’ve been wanting this for a couple years since I was a freshman and watched (the 2009) team win (a championship). I wanted to be the one on the field doing it and it feels so awesome.” “We knew Cheverus was going to be a great battle,” said Mariello. “They’re a great team. We’ll take it any way we can. All the girls are hungry. They’ll take advantage and execute. We didn’t want to have the sting we had in the past.” It didn’t come easily, but another shutout was in the books and the Red Storm is now one shutout from tying the 1998 Winslow Black Raiders from right here in Maine for the all-time national record for successive whitewashings in one season. “I had seven shots against Sanford, but this was a really intense game,” said Hicks. “Sometimes I get a little bored, but tonight was a good feeling. A lot of other teams have a couple really, really strong players. We have 11 players at a time who are amazing. No one is better than the other. That’s how we’ve done it.” “The girls maintain a level of stability

Cross country from page 17 South Portland (207) placed seventh and qualified as well. The Red Storm, which made it to states for the 14th successive season, was led by Robby Hall, who came in fourth in 17:42.63. Jack Sullivan placed sixth (17:51.67). Other scorers were Jacob Terry (14th, 18:16.05), Colin Tardiff (16th, 18:20.13) and Sean McGovern (24th, 18:43.76). The Red Riots, who qualified for the fourth year in a row, featured Gavin Damian-Loring, who was 15th (18:17.71). Max Knutsen came in 31st (18:57.13), Colton Gervais placed 47th (18:57.13), Thomas Hodgkins finished 56th (19:53.17) and Jacob Guay was 58th (19:53.92). “Based on head-to-head competition during the regular season, we weren’t ranked in the top eight, but we improved tremendously throughout the season,” said South Portland coach David Kahill. “The team started the race with confidence that we would qualify for states, and they ran with determination to place

Field hockey from previous page with their heads,” Mariello said. “We expected to get some shots fired at us. We were bound to get some (pressure). We were ready. These girls have challenged themselves. We take it as a compliment to take a challenge and overcome. It’s incredible. You can’t fathom the fact (the shutout streak has) happened or as a coach think it would. They work double the amount in practice to get to this level. It’s a tribute to them.”

seventh. Max was inspiring because he started and finished the race with a painful hip injury and Gavin continued to exceed all expectations as a freshman to place. “The team is looking forward to the chance to run the Belfast course again at the state championship. We don’t figure to be in the running for a state championship, but the boys are determined to work together for their best team and individual races.” On the girls’ side in Western A, South Portland, led by individual champion Nyajock Pan (19:52.15) came in fourth with 133 points (Bonny Eagle with 58 was the winner). Scarborough finished 13th with 352 points and did not qualify. Other scorers for the Red Riots, who made it four straight trips to states, included Casey Loring (ninth, 20:50.17), Angela Tirabassi (29th, 22:56.08), Ariana Mohammad (37th, 23:31.82) and Ciera Mullen (57th, 24:46.44). The Red Storm’s top finisher was Laura Volan, who was 51st in 24:11.68. Stephanie Ostrowski (63rd, 25:22.51), Jessica Cote (75th, 26:16.19), Emma Lynch (81st, 26:43.08) and Maria Quartararo (82nd, 26:44.52) were the other scorers. Scarborough fell short of the state meet for the second year in a row.

The stuff of legend Scarborough now has a chance to not only win a second state championship in its third title game appearance, but to do so by not surrendering a single goal. Its opponent Saturday won’t make it easy, as Skowhegan has outscored its 17 foes this fall by a composite margin of 144-2, including 27-1 in the postseason. Scarborough played Skowhegan in each of its prior two championship appearances, dropping an agonizing 2-1 overtime decision in the 2008 game and returning the favor by the same score the following year, thanks to Ellie Morin’s game winner in OT. The Red Storm is eager to get back to the pinnacle and to leave its mark as arguably the finest team the state has ever seen. “We played really, really hard tonight, but that just means we have to play that much harder Saturday,” Hicks said. “We’re very confident. We have to do what we’ve been doing, play with our heads, our hearts and our sticks. I know we can do it.” “We have far more depth and balance (than the 2008 and 2009 teams),” Mariello said. “The unity is unexplainable. We’ll prepare the girls mentally for Saturday as much as a possible. (Skowhegan puts) their shoes and clothes on the same as our girls. It will be a hell of a game. We’ll give them a fight.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ Follow him on Twitter: @foresports.

Drama the theme as soccer playoffs open (Ed. Note: For the complete Cape Elizabeth-Greely girls’ soccer game story, please visit By Michael Hoffer The 2012 soccer playoffs (at press time) could be summed up this way: Good news for Cape Elizabeth. Bad news for South Portland. Waiting on results for Scarborough. The Capers girls have been one of the more inspirational stories this autumn. After losing their opener to two-time defending Class B state champion Falmouth, Cape Elizabeth closed the year on a 12-0-1 run to earn the No. 4 seed in Western A. Friday, the Capers hosted No. 13 South Portland, which garnered the final spot, in the preliminary round. Cape Elizabeth advanced in the first ever postseason meeting between the neighbors, who don’t play in the regular season, but it wasn’t easy. A goal from Addie Wood put the Capers on top, but Ericka Lightner answered for the Red Riots and was 1-1 at halftime. Kathryn Clark continued to emerge as one of the state’s special players with a key goal in the second half, but Cape Elizabeth had to sweat out some close calls late to advance, 2-1.

Mike Strout / For the ForecaSter

Cape Elizabeth goalkeeper Austin Andrews makes a save as Chris Gallant can’t reach the ball during the Capers’ 2-1 Western Class A preliminary round win over Marshwood last weekend.

“Last year, we would have been happy to beat South Portland, but this year we weren’t happy with how we played,” said Capers coach Luke Krawczyk. South Portland finished the year 5-10. Cape Elizabeth next hosted No. 5 Greely in the quarterfinals Tuesday. Entering the contest, the longtime rivals had met 15 previous times in the playoffs, dating back to 1985. Greely had won 10 of those encounters, including the most recent, 2-1, in the 2008 quarterfinals. The teams had combined for just one goal in two regular season meetings (the Capers won, 1-0, at the Rangers and the squads settled for a scoreless draw at Cape Elizabeth), but this time, the Capers broke out. After 32-plus minutes of almost nothing in the way of good chances, Cape Elizabeth got the only goal it would need, courtesy Clark. Taking a pass from Wood, Clark beat a defender and went in one-on-one with Greely senior goalkeeper Caton Beaulieu, who is as aggressive as anyone. Beaulieu had largely stymied the Capers this season, but this time, Clark had the angle and managed to shoot past the keeper into the net for a 1-0 lead. “At first, we played a 4-4-2 and Addie, the other forward, and I were playing too far apart and didn’t connect well,” said Clark. “We got closer, she tipped a ball and I came in around and I put it in.” Then, with time winding down in the half another precocious Caper, freshman Katherine Briggs, was in the right place at the right time to bang home a rebound continued next page

Soccer from previous page of Kate Breed’s shot to give Cape Elizabeth a 2-0 halftime lead. “All the credit should go to Kate Breed,” Briggs said. “She made an amazing run. I was just there to finish. Usually I don’t think about it in a moment like that, but I thought about it. It was just a simple finish into the goal.” Greely couldn’t respond in the second half and a second Clark goal, this one with 23:14 left on the clock put it away as the Capers went on to a 3-0 victory, improved to 13-1-1, ended the Rangers’ season at 10-4-2 and set up a semifinal round showdown at top-ranked Windham Friday evening. “We’ve been preparing for a game like this all season,” said Clark. “Greely’s always our biggest rival. We came in confident but not too confident and I think we really played well. Beating Greely 3-0, we never thought we’d beat them by that much.” Friday, the team has a chance to do something no Capers squad has accomplished since 2000, reach a regional final. Cape Elizabeth doesn’t play Windham (14-0-1 after surviving ninth-ranked Cheverus in PKs in its quarterfinal

Tuesday) in the regular season. The teams’ last playoff meeting was a 4-1 Eagles’ triumph in the 2006 preliminary round. The squads also met in the 1984 quarterfinals (a 2-1 Capers’ victory) and the 1995 quarterfinals (a 1-0 win for Windham on PKs). Cape Elizabeth, a season-long underdog, likes its chances to keep this amazing run going. “We started off decent and we’ve just been improving over the course of the season,” said Clark. “I think we can take it all the way to states.” “I think we just have to continue to play as a team, play our game, learn from our mistakes, adapt at halftime and continue to rely on each other, have confidence in each other and have confidence in our coach,” said Briggs. “We want to go and play the best teams,” Krawczyk added. “That’s the measure of how far we’ve come. How we do against the best teams and the best players.” Scarborough’s girls finished the season 12-1-1 and third in Western A. The Red Storm hosted No. 6 Sanford (113-1) in the quarterfinals Wednesday. Scarborough didn’t face the Spartans this fall. The teams last met in the postseason in the 2003 quarterfinals (a 2-0 Red



Storm win). “Our regular season went very well,” said Scarborough coach Mike Farley. “We conceded three goals all year, just one in the run of play and two on (penalty kicks), which is a good indication that the players have bought into defending as a group and really take defending personally. Our backs did a great job working together and covering for each other. We got great goalkeeping from Sydney Martin and MacKenzie O’Brien, both of whom didn’t have to make a lot of saves, but were usually called upon to make a really tough save or two in games and more often than not they came up with those saves. I think we’ve had balanced scoring with eight players scoring multiple goals, with Sarah Martens and Jess Meader leading the way with 14 and 12 goals respectively. “Our matchup with Sanford will be a good game. We don’t play them in the regular season and didn’t see them at all last year. We know they have some very

dangerous players offensively and they will test us defensively. We’ll have to play our game and make the most of the chances that we can create, because in the playoffs everything comes harder and you have to finish the few opportunities you get and really limit the chances you give the other team.” If Scarborough advanced, it will be at second-ranked Thornton Academy (15-0) in the semifinals Friday or Saturday. The Golden Trojans handed the Red Storm its lone regular season loss, 1-0, Sept. 27 in Saco. The teams last met in the playoffs two years ago in the regional final, a 1-0 Scarborough triumph. On the boys’ side, Cape Elizabeth went into the postseason on a high, closing the regular year on a 5-0-1 streak to finish 7-5-2, good for the No. 8 seed in Western A. Saturday, the Capers hosted No. 9 Marshwood and eked out a 2-1 win to advance. Griffin Thoreck produced yet

have two superb running backs who run with great effort. We look forward to the challenge.”

South Portland will not take part in the playoffs, but the Red Riots made a mighty statement in their regular season finale Saturday, shocking visiting Portland, 19-6, in the “Battle of the Bridge” to end up 2-6.

After a scoreless first period, South Portland went up 13-0 as quarterback Duncan Preston scored on a short run and Preston hit Joey DiBiase with a 50-yard TD pass. The Bulldogs pulled within 13-6 by halftime and after a scoreless third quarter, the Red Riots delivered the coup de grace in the fourth on a 26-yard scoring run by DiBiase.

“It felt great,” said South Portland coach Steve Stinson. “It was a well deserved win for the kids. We did a nice job in practice all week talking about what we could accomplish by winning the ‘Bridge’ game. The kids came out and played physical and with confidence. A lot of guys knew it was the last game they’d play. It was our most emotional game of the year. Field conditions played a role for both teams, but we finally broke through. The kids were very excited to win. For a 1-6 team to beat a 5-2 team by two TDs was something to enjoy.”

The Red Riots should bounce right back in 2013. Unlike this fall, when they basically started over due to graduation, next year’s squad will have the benefit of experience.

“We had so many holes to fill this year, but we’ll be one of the most experienced teams next fall,” said Stinson. “We’ll have a big senior class. We bring back nine starters on both offense and defense. A win like this sets us up for a good winter, spring and summer. My job will be to develop the linemen. We have great size and great skill players who are ready. They just need to get bigger, faster and stronger.”

Soccer from page 21 another booming free kick goal to get Cape Elizabeth started and Eddie Galvin provided the go-ahead tally. The Capers went to top-ranked Gorham (12-0-2) for the quarterfinals Wednesday. The former Western Maine Conference rivals don’t play in the regular season. The last postseason encounter between the two came way back in the 1990 regional final, a 3-0 Cape Elizabeth win. If the Capers survived that game, they’ll visit either No. 4 Kennebunk (9-2-3) or No. 5 Deering (9-3-3) in the semifinals this weekend. Cape Elizabeth didn’t play either set of Rams this season. Scarborough’s quest for a ninth straight No. 1 seed ended virtue a coin flip after the Red Storm finished tied with Gorham with a 12-0-2 record, the 10th straight season Scarborough has posted double digit victories.

“I’m happy with the regular season,” said Red Storm coach Mark Diaz. “We hoped to be 1 or 2 and that’s what we are. We’ve played better throughout the season.” As the No. 2 seed, Scarborough opened the playoffs at home against resurgent Portland (7-7-1) in the quarterfinals Wednesday. On Sept. 11, the Red Storm handled the host Bulldogs, 6-1, but Scarborough knows Portland is playing much better now (a 2-1 double OT win at defending state champion Windham Monday was the Bulldogs’ fifth in a row). “Portland’s not the same team,” Diaz said. “They believe. They’re working hard. We’re not looking at this like we caught a break. We’ll have to show up. We’re healthy, we’re excited and we’ll be ready.” The teams have met three previous times in the playoffs, with Portland prevailing in the 2002 preliminary round and Scarborough taking an epic 2003 semifi-


nal and winning again in the 2009 semis. If the Red Storm passes its first test, it will host either No. 3 Greely (10-4) or surprise No. 11 Noble (9-6) in the semifinals this weekend. Scarborough doesn’t face the Rangers in the regular season, but beat them, 1-0, in last year’s quarterfinals to take a 5-3 all-time postseason lead in the series. The Red Storm was a 4-2 winner at Noble Oct. 2. The teams have never met in the playoffs. South Portland hoped to advance from the preliminary round, but as the No. 6 seed, was upset by Noble last Saturday, 2-0, to finish 8-4-3.

Schedule Looking ahead, the regional final round is Wednesday of next week. Games will be played on the fields of the highest remaining seeds.

Out & About

Suzy Bogguss drives north to Portland By Scott Andrews Lots of music is coming up over the next week, with the biggest name being Suzy Bogguss, a golden-throated country singer with several gold records to her credit. Maine is blessed with two superb string quartets, and the season-opening concerts of both are slated for this weekend. The DaPonte String Quartet has four concerts scheduled Thursday through Sunday. The Portland String Quartet, operating in “with friends” mode, holds forth on Sunday. The Portland Symphony Orchestra will have a “Cello-bration” on Oct. 30. Maestro Robert Moody’s program revolves around two concertos for two cellos. And perfectly jibing with the theme of pairs, on Nov. 1 Portland Ovations presents a concert by two stellar pianists: Soyeon Kate Lee and Ran Dank.

Suzy Bogguss “Hey Cinderella, what’s the story all about?” That unforgettably plaintive refrain has become the musical signature of Suzy Bogguss, a country singer-songwriter who has sold millions of records and will appear this Saturday at One Longfellow Square. Bogguss’ performances are characterized by a clear voice and a simple, straight-ahead style. Her songwriting invokes simple emotions within an older and simpler Nashville aesthetic. She enjoyed her greatest fame in the late 1980s and early 1990s, releasing one platinum and three gold records. Her best-known singles are “Drive South,” “Letting Go” and “Hey Cinderella.” After taking a few years off to start a family, Bogguss returned to the concert circuit in the early 2000s and she’s been active ever since. Her most recent project is “The American Folk Songbook,” which was released in 2011, and features hit music from the 19th-century and early 20th. Catch Suzy Bogguss at One Longfellow Square, corner of State and Congress in downtown Portland, at 8 p.m. Oct. 27. Call 761-1757.

DaPonte String Quartet Portland’s Congress Street Arts District has a major new resident these days: Beginning this weekend, the DaPonte String Quartet will present its concert series at Portland Public Library’s recently renovated Rines Auditorium. “We have long wanted to find a space to

perform in the Arts District,” says Executive Director Amy MacDonald. “It’s an ideal spot for us and a chance to showcase the auditorium’s greatly improved acoustics.” The first program in the 2012-2013 series is entitled “The Austro-Hungarian ‘Invasion.’” It features works by three vastly influential composers who span three centuries: Franz Joseph Haydn’s Quartet in D Major (“The Lark”), Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Quartet in D Minor, and Bela Bartok’s String Quartet No. 6. The DSQ formed in Philadelphia in the early 1990s and moved to Maine a few years later on a rural residency program grant. When the grant term expired, the four musicians surprised many by embracing Maine as their new home state and base of operations. They have performed all over the U.S. and have an annual academic residency at the University of North Texas. In addition to the Oct. 27 Portland Public Library concert, the series will be performed Oct. 25 at St. John’s Church in Thomaston, Oct. 26 at the Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta and a matinee at Oct. 28 at the Studzinski Recital Hall at Bowdoin College in Brunswick. Performances are at 7:30 p.m., except for Brunswick, which is at 3 p.m. Call 529-4555.

Portland String Quartet (with Friends) Two works by New England’s bestknown woman composer will be spotlighted this Sunday when the Portland String Quartet opens its 2012-2013 season. The composer is Amy Beach, who was born in New Hampshire in 1867 and spent most of her professional life in Boston. Beach was the first woman in America to achieve major recognition as a composer and she remains among the most admired and influential. Two guest artists from Maine are featured on the program. Dean Stein will sit in as first violinist; he’s a friend of the PSQ who has been substituting during Steven Kecskemethy’s illness. Pianist Cheryl Tschanz is another longtime PSQ friend who will do the solo honors in Beach’s Piano Quintet in F Sharp Minor as well as her “Balkan Variations.” Other composers on the program will

be Ludwig van Beethoven and Johannes Brahms. The concert is scheduled for 2 p.m. Oct. 28 at Woodfords Congregational Church, 202 Woodford St. in Portland. Call the LARK Society at 761-1522.

Portland Symphony Orchestra The cello has always been an essential element of classical music, but the big string instrument is the theme of Portland Symphony Orchestra’s Oct. 30 program. Maestro Robert Moody is calling the concert a “Cello-bration,” and he’s programmed a number of pieces representing different styles and eras of music to highlight its rich baritone voice. One of the major pieces is Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Two Cellos. This work calls for two solo cellos, which will be performed by guest artists Joel Noyes and Brian Thornton. Noyes is a member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and is the son of two PSO musicians, Richard and Clorinda Noyes. Thornton plays cello for the Cleveland Orchestra. The Concerto for Two Cellos by contemporary composer David Ott is next on the slate, followed by Gioachino Rossini’s popular “William Tell Overture.” Rossini’s famous piece is best known for its thrilling martial passage that was used for many years as the theme music for the “Lone Ranger” television broadcasts. Hi-yo Silver! Away! Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 1, the most famous of his symphonies,

rounds out the program. Plus there will be a bonus piece that will involve maestro Moody in an unfamiliar role -- playing the cello. Portland Symphony Orchestra presents “Cello-bration” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Soyeon Kate Lee and Ran Dank

The centennial of Igor Stravinsky’s precedent-shattering “Rite of Spring” is one of Portland Ovations’ major themes for the current season, and the celebration begins with a Nov. 1 concert by two pianists. Soyeon Kate Lee (from Korea) and Ran Dank (from Israel) have received many awards and accolades in their young careers, including taking the top two prizes at the prestigious 2010 Naumberg International Piano Competition. These young artists make their Portland Ovations debut with a program that features several works for two pianos that will include Darius Milhaud’s “Sacramouche,” Claude Debussy’s “Nocturnes” and Maurice Ravel’s “La Valse.” The program will conclude with Lee and Dank performing Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” in the seldom-heard four-hand arrangement -- meaning one piano played by two musicians. The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Sea level

Comment on this story at:

from page 1 erty on Pine Point and off Broadturn Road, said those forecasts do not mean town councilors should be in a rush to approve sweeping changes affecting construction of existing and new structures in areas deemed flood zones by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The changes requiring new construction, rebuilding of damaged properties or renovations costing more than half the current worth of a structure to be set 3 feet above the floodplain instead of the current 1 foot, have been discussed by town planners, Planning Board members and councilors since the summer. The proposed changes, which will be discussed Oct. 29 at a Planning Board public hearing and could face a second vote by councilors Nov. 7, came as a surprise to about 20 residents attending the workshop led by Slovinsky and Assistant Town Planner Jay Chace. Chace and Slovinsky represent the town as part of the Sea Level Adaptation Working Group, a combined effort in Saco, Old Orchard Beach, Biddeford and Scarborough to proactively confront effects of rising sea levels. Officials in the towns are working with the Southern Maine Regional Planning Commission on strategies and solutions and funding options for implementation. The “SLAWG” acronym is awkward, Chace admitted, but similar zoning requirements were enacted in Saco earlier

this year and have the potential to for big savings on flood insurance premiums for property owners in FEMA flood zones. By increasing the base structure height to 3 feet above a floodline, shifting heating and electrical systems above ground, and using posts or flow-through foundations to prevent inundations by storm surges, Chace said a study by Gorhambased Chalmers Insurance Group shows homeowners could save 67 percent on flood insurance premiums that are required with mortgaged properties in flood zones. Based on current FEMA maps, Chace said about 1,000 properties are affected by the revisions, and 267 of them are currently insured against floods. The ripple that became the swell ridden by Hamill and Pine Point residents John Thurlow and Judy Shirk is new FEMA maps expected to be released next spring or summer. Slovinsky said the maps update 30-year-old data and use enhanced technology to determine wave and water flow. Updated floodplain maps were released for Cumberland and Yrok counties by FEMA in 2009, then withdrawn when the mapping methods were questioned by town officials and residents. Hamill said the Planning Board and town councilors should wait for new FEMA maps to get a better idea how many properties will be affected in the future. As the workshop concluded, Thur-


low urged his neighbors and other residents living in shoreline neighborhoods to attend the hearing and subsequent council meeting to ask for a postponement of the zoning revisions. Slovinsky and Chace emphasized that the floodplain maps and SLAWG efforts are not mutually inclusive. Based on readings taken in Portland harbor over the last century, sea levels are rising, they said. “I really don’t care why it is rising,” Slovinsky said, “Sea-level communities like Scarborough are the ones feeling it now.” The prediction of a 2-foot rise in sea levels in the next 80 years are based on studies including data on melting ice sheets, and Slovinsky said the increase will be most notable in summer months when offshore winds push currents to beaches. The real hazards come when storms arrive, especially if a storm surge coincides with a high tide. Slovinsky said flood tides combined with a 2-foot increase in sea levels could produce flooding like the Patriot’s Day Storm in 2007 “on a monthly basis.” The zoning ordinance revisions are the first efforts by SLAWG members to legislate action against rising sea levels, but Chace said other municipal department heads also have the data and reports. Additional actions could include redesigning or relocating public infrastructure in vulnerable area and elevating roads, but Chace said his department is con-


cerned only with zoning. David Harry can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or Follow him on Twitter: @ DavidHarry8.

Penguins from page 1

part of an annual study unit taught by Diana Violette and former student teacher Amber Lane, who said she wanted to help students find local ties for their studies. Lane has moved on after graduating from the University of New England last spring, but returned to the museum to greet her former students and see how the exhibit turned out. She and Sullivan said the work showed students were learning critical thinking, Comment on this story at:

based on their suggestions for how to create a penguin habitat and which species might be best suited to live in it. After Liam Curran showed his mother, Alison Curran, his letter and drawing, she said her son was excited to visit the museum. The lack of live penguins did not seem to disappoint him. “It’s cool,” he said about seeing his art on the wall.

Cape ordinance from page 1 to get policies in place. “We could legislate this thing to death, but what we need to do is see it work,” he said. The proposed amendments would require owners of short-term rental properties to adhere to several new regulations and to go through a permitting process before their property can be rented. Permits will only be granted after an inspection from a town code officer determines the rental has adequate fire extinguishers, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, proof of sanitary waste disposal, appropriate exits and evacuation plans. The drafted ordinance restricts the number of tenants to no more than two residents per bedroom and does not allow more than eight tenants in one property


at any time. Applicants will also have to provide a description of how parking will be provided at the property and include a detailed renter’s agreement that lists emergency contact information, maximum number of guests allowed and a copy of the town’s miscellaneous offenses ordinance. A “three-strikes” rule is included in the latest draft, giving the town the ability to revoke permits for a year if a rental property has more than three substantiated complaints reported to the police or the code enforcement officer in a three-year period. Property owners can obtain a new permit after the year of suspension. Complaints to police will be substantiated by the code enforcement officer and can be appealed to the Zoning Board by the property owner. “This whole ordinance defines the standard for the substantiation of a com-

plaint,” Councilor Jim Walsh said. “Right now, it’s left to opinion.” The council discussed extending the three-strikes rule further to indefinitely suspend a permit if complaints about a property continued after the initial suspension, but the suggestion was considered too restrictive. In another ordinance amendment related to short-term rentals, the committee, along with Police Chief Neil Williams, is recommending more detailed language under the “Disturbing the Peace” section of the miscellaneous offenses ordinance. The draft amendment includes violations for “excessive volume of music” and sets quiet hours beginning at 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and from 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

property owners responsible for noise violations. According to a town report drawn from house-renting websites, more than 30 properties this year are listed as shortterm rentals in Cape Elizabeth. Sandra Dunham, who owns a shortterm rental on Becky’s Cove Lane with her husband, Tom, said although the process has been long and drawn out, it has helped to solve problems. “It’s led to rental owners being more aware of their neighbors,” Dunham said. “And the biggest thing that’s come out of all this, is that you have neighbors talking to neighbors.” Tom Dunham agreed and said, “it’s time to wrap it up; it’s been 14 months.” The council will vote on the amendments at its next meeting at 7 p.m., Nov. 14, at Town Hall.

the School Board. The council agreed to hear presentations from Providence Avenue resident Jeffrey P. McDonald, Mitchell Road resident Roger Allen, Sawyer Street resident Pam Koonz Canarie, Elderberry Drive resident Mary House, Morse Street resident Tiffanie L. Bentley and former School Board Chairman Ralph C. Baxter Jr. of Simmons Road. Councilors anticpate the presentations and questions for applicants will take at least 90 minutes and may not result in an immedaite appointment at the conclusion of the meeting. A date for the meeting was not selected. Also, in a special meeting convened before the workshop, councilors voted 5-1 in favor of a resolution supporting state referendum Question 1, which would allow same-sex marriages. Councilor Al Livingston voted against the resolution. “I don’t think it is our place to give views and try and influence other people,” Livingston said. He suggested the referendum question would not have the same financial impact on the city as previous referendum questions that would have limited excise taxes and capped municipal spending, both of which failed in 2010. Councilors passed resolutions opposing those questions.

dering how things will look in five or 10 years,” Coon said. Holbrook, who serves on the council finance committee, said staffing shortages in public safety and at Town Hall and other municipal needs have been postponed too long. “I don’t care what the economy is doing, people always worry about their back pockets,” she said. Scarborough School Department operations account for 60 percent of municipal appropriations, and council candidates said they are aware they are limited in their input on education spending. The council has final say about how much is spent on education, but no say in where it is spent. St. Clair said the key to council and School Board relations comes in communication. She said her friendship with Scarborough School Board member Kelly Murphy is a reason she is running. “It is critical to have a good relationship. They might not like what you have to say, but they will be more open to it,” St. Clair said. Andriulli said his work as a contractor will help him reconcile and compromise with a basic idea in mind. “I want the best education everyone can afford,” he said. Coon said he is running because of the budget process last winter. He was distressed by School Department

plans to add new staff and programs despite the loss of federal and state subsidies. “If enrollment is level, then growth should not be beyond the cost of living increases,” he said. Donovan said it is not his intention to do “what the School Board is charged to do,” adding he would still speak up if projected spending increases are higher than the rate of inflation. Blaise said he would like to expand the council role in determining the education budget, and said he sees little financial management in any municipal area. “I don’t feel the school system or town government has a responsibility of providing or ensuring jobs are kept,” he said. “I’m not out to cut programs; I am out to get the town more efficient.” Holbrook said her first term showed her the limitations councilors have on education spending. “You can say all day long ‘you can find it here,’ but there is nothing you can do,” she said. With slowed economic growth, the candidates said they support reviewing zoning laws and permitting practices. Andriulli said demanding the highest standards in design and infrastructure can add costs that drive residents and businesses from town. Holbrook said loosening restrictions and understanding the diversity of the areas of town could help spur growth, but supports making choices about development that are not redundant with neighboring towns. Donovan said he is optimistic planning and infrastructure place the town in a good position to benefit from a growing economy. He would like to see efforts to bring in greener businesses without simply shifting companies to town from neighboring areas. When considering growth, St. Clair and Coon said it is as important to understand the needs of existing businesses and support them. “I want to make sure someone is reaching out to the business community,” Coon said. What motivates the candidates and makes them want to serve? “It thrusts me more into becoming a member of the community,” Donovan said. St. Clair said she is seeking the two-year seat to learn about serving and how the council works. “I have been very lucky to meet some cool, incredible people. But I am not afraid to say ‘I don’t know,’” she said. Holbrook said her re-election campaign is like her first run. “You should put your time where your mouth is,” she said. Coon said he will bring devotion and a fresh perspective to council chambers. “I am passionate about this town,” he said. Flexibility will be a key for Andriulli. “Nobody has the silver bullet. You just listen and make the best decision,” he said. Blaise pinpointed his goals to improve town finances and budgeting. “I think people who run should have ideas to change things,” he said.

“One thing that deters me from voting is the lack of truth” in presidential debates, Cary said. “The fact that a candidate can go in front of 60 million people and lie or misrepresent the truth is discouraging.”

from page 1 years ago. In a Harvard Public Opinion poll released last week, the number of 18- to 29-year-olds in the United States who plan to vote has decreased substantially since 2008 to 48 percent – a 15 percent drop.

He said the misinformation confuses people and causes them to lose interest. Jordan has the students watch the highlights of the presidential debates and check statements made by the candidates on, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group that monitors factual accuracy in politics.

Another student, Justin Cary, said he attributes the lack of enthusiasm among young people to the candidates’ misleading rhetoric.

Comment on this story at:

“I was shocked by how many of the students were turned off by the candidates,” Jordan said. “(The candidates) continually misstate the truth.” Other classmates said the lack of substance in presidential debates can be attributed to the two-party system, which causes candidates to dive to the middle and advocate for near-identical policies. “Really what happens is that it suffocates the debate and the candidates are

October 26, 2012

almost forced to advocate for the same thing,” said Matt Gillman, who is an advocate for third-party candidates and has worked on independent U.S. Senate candidate Angus King’s campaign.

Despite their feelings toward the national election, the students still hold on to the ideal that voting is important in local and statewide elections.

This attitude reflects Maine’s voting record. The state consistently has one of the highest voter turnouts in the nation, including in 2010, when Maine had the highest voter turnout in the country, with just under 60 percent. Average voter turnout for age-eligible citizens in the country was only 46 percent.

Although many of the students in the class will not be eligible to vote in this election, it hasn’t stopped them from campaigning for candidates and issues they care about.

Ebe Coughlin, 16, has been working for the Question 1 campaign, which, if approved, would allow same-sex couples to marry.


“I wish I could vote this year because of certain issues in the state like the same-sex marriage referendum,” she said, noting many of the people working on the campaign with her are ineligible to vote because they are underage. “If more young people went to vote it would matter.”


Gillman said working on King’s campaign has encouraged him.

“The (U.S. Senate) race is an opportunity to elect Angus King as an independent who can actually help fix some of the problems and malaise in the Senate,” he said. “The important thing is that he is not beholden to Democrats or Republicans.”

In addition to their work on campaigns and in-class activities, Jordan has had the students moderate debates between state and local candidates and invited many candidates to come and speak to the class.

The class also plans to poll voters in Cape Elizabeth on Election Day, Jordan said, noting that although there’s no school, he plans to provide an incentive of extra credit for those who participate.
