Pine Point condo conversion plan gets initial OK

Natalie Conn / For The Forecaster

Voters line up at Scarborough High School on Tuesday, Nov. 8, where the $39 million Wentworth School bond question helped drive turnout up to 55 percent in the off-year election.

Second time’s a charm for Wentworth School

By Mario Moretto SCARBOROUGH — The Zoning Board of Appeals on Wednesday enthusiastically approved a proposal by the owners of the Lighthouse Inn at Pine Point plan to turn their hotel into condominiums. “I think you guys have done a great job,” Mark Maroon, chairman of the ZBA, told brothers Nicholas and Peter Truman, who own the inn. The Trumans hope to convert the business from a seasonal 22-unit hotel into a 10-unit townhouse-style condo complex. A previous proposal would have created 12 units, but after hear-

ing concerns about density and a lack of on-site parking, the Trumans combined units to reduce the number. The footprint of the hotel wouldn’t change, but a third floor would be built inside a dormered roof, bringing each three-story condo to about 1,100 square feet. The Trumans have said that after decades of family ownership of the inn, they’re ready to get out of the hotel business. Shifting from a commercial use to a residential one would move the building closer to compliance with Pine Point’s residenSee page 23

Voters approve borrowing $39M for new building By Mario Moretto SCARBOROUGH — Residents voted overwhelmingly Tuesday for construction of a new Wentworth Intermediate School. Unofficial returns provided by the town had the referendum passing with 63 percent of the vote, 4,792 to 2,784. Proponents of the project have said the school must be

replaced because of ongoing issues with air quality, mold and asbestos, as well poor building design that can mean 90 minutes per day of students commuting through the halls. They also were concerned about poor energy efficiency, a lack of air conditioning that left classrooms sweltering in the warmer months, and a

lack of basic amenities like running water and restrooms in large portions of the school. “We are very excited,” said Christine Massengill, a member of the 40-strong building committee that promoted the proposal, and, as of Tuesday, a new School See page 23

The new proposal for a renovated Thomas Memorial Library in Cape Elizabeth is to create a 23,000-square-foot, two-story, split-level building with ample green space and natural lighting.

Town Council supports revised library proposal By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — After talking to residents, gathering feedback and adjusting the Thomas Memorial Library design plans, town councilors on Monday said they like the revised concept. The new design was presented at a Town Council workshop. While councilors are not close to a final vote, they indicated their initial support for the new design.

Town Manager Mike McGovern said the design makes the library at 6 Scott Dyer Road look less like a strip mall and more like a modern, functional facility. He said the proposal increases the overall library space to 23,000 square feet from its current 13,000 square feet by adding a second story that “significantly reduced the footprint” See page 24

High court to hear ‘smart’-meter arguments

Lawmaker questions opt-out fees By Emily Parkhurst

PORTLAND — The debate over Central Maine Power Co.’s “smart” electrical meters is headed to the state’s highest court. A group of CMP customers filed the appeal last week with the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. They claim the Maine Public Utilities Commission, which dismissed a request for an investigation into the safety of wireless meters, violated the state statute that requires the regulatory agency to ensure utilities provide safe service to their customers. “They have specifically said on several occasions that they won’t make a decision on these (health and security) issues,” said Ed Friedman, a Bowdoinham resident and lead complainant. “When they specifically avoid their responsibility, that makes the whole darn thing null and void.” The PUC declined to investigate the 19-person complaint on Aug. 31, declaring that a previous probe that resulted in requiring CMP to offer opt-outs to

customers who do not wish to have the meters installed on their homes or businesses was sufficient. The smart meters transmit customer data wirelessly to CMP, and will allow customers to track their electricity use in real time. The plan is to give customers the option of using electricity during off-peak hours, which could save them money and reduce the use of fossil fuel sources used mostly during peak hours. But PUC complaints rolled in last year as some customers expressed concerns that the meters were not secure, could cause fires in homes with older electrical systems, and could affect the health of some people. In May, the PUC required CMP to offer its customers the option of opting out of the smart meter program. The opt-outs require customers pay an additional fee to keep their old meters, or to have the wireless capabilities of the smart meter turned off. Friedman said the decision to make customers pay for opting out of a service that critics say has not been proved safe or secure was a mistake. “In reality it’s a false choice. We see this as a great experiment,” Friedman

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/105358

said. “This is a great experiment on Mainers, affecting both our health and privacy.” Friedman said his group has also called for the resignation of the commissioners who made the decision not to investigate the safety and security of the meters, and said he’d like to see the smart meter program abandoned. “The state statute says (the PUC commissioners) need to ensure service is safe. It doesn’t say just make sure there’s a good chance service is safe, it says it must be safe,” Friedman said. In addition to the PUC appeal, state Rep. Roberta Beavers, D-South Berwick, has filed emergency legislation that would prevent those who have opted out of the smart meter program from having to pay the $40 initial opt-out fee and a $12-permonth fee for meter readings. “Essentially (the bill) is to remedy the inequity that was created by the opt-out charges,” Beavers said. Beavers said she did not understand why people who did not want expensive equipment installed on their houses would have to pay a tax to keep their old meters. “If people don’t want this on their dwelling, they should not have to have them,” she said. Beavers said she has opted out of smart meter installation, but does not necessarily have a problem with the program. Her

concern is the charge assessed to those who opted out. “They’ve already put the $40 (opt-out charge) on my bill. I’m going to contest it,” she said. Beavers’ initial emergency legislation was not accepted by the Legislative Council, but she said she will appeal that decision on Nov. 17. CMP spokesman John Carroll said the company is still on track to have more than 600,000 smart meters installed by the first quarter of 2012. He said the company does not have any comment on the lawsuit. In the past, Carroll has stopped short of saying smart meters are safe, and has emphasized that it is not CMP’s job to test the safety of the meters, deferring that decision to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other experts. The Maine Center for Disease Control previously stated that it did not find “any consistent or convincing evidence to support a concern for health effects related to the use of radiofrequency in the range of frequencies and power used by smart meters.” That statement came before the World Health Organization this year added radiation from cell phones and other wireless devices, such as smart meters, as a possible carcinogen.

with 2,770 and 2,551 votes, respectively. Scifres, 36, is married and lives on Longfellow Drive. She stays at home with her two young children and is the varsity girls tennis coach at South Portland High School. Morrissey, 46, of Old Fort Road, is the project manager for 21 Reasons, a substance abuse prevention coalition in Portland. She is married and has 11- and 14-year-old children. Of Cape’s 7,500 registered voters, about 3,700 residents cast ballots, according the town clerk’s office. They voted overwhelmingly for state

ballot Question 1, to restore same-day voter registration; state Question 4, the constitutional amendment to change the schedule of congressional redistricting, and a $33 million county bond issue to renovate the Cumberland County Civic Center. And by wide margins they voted against state Questions 2 and 3, which would have allowed gaming operations in Biddeford, Washington County and Lewiston. Questions 1 and 4 passed statewide, and Questions 2 and 3 failed. The Civic Center bond issue was approved. Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or aanderson@theforecaster.net.

Voters approve $33M bond for Civic Center By Emily Parkhurst PORTLAND — Voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly supported a $33 million bond referendum to renovate the Cumberland County Civic Center. According to unofficial results, Cumberland County voters approved the bond referendum 45,877 to 31,559, or 59 percent to 41 percent, with several small towns not reporting. “I’m extremely pleased we were able to get the message out,” Civic Center Board of Trustees Chairman Neal Pratt said Tuesday night. He said the outcome made it clear voters believe the Civic Center is well managed and will continue to be an economic engine for the region. “It’s a resounding vote in favor of those principals,” he said. As expected, greater Portland voters generally supported the bond, while voters from outlying county towns were not as enthusiastic. In Portland, the bond was approved by a 2 to 1 margin, 12,732 to 6,493, in unofficial results. Voters approved the measure 2,499 to 1,466 in Falmouth, 1,644 to 1,105 in Cumberland, 1,688 to 1,336 in Freeport, 1,992 to 1,186 in Yarmouth, 658-616 in North Yarmouth, 3,537 to 2,252 in Brunswick, 1,095 to 921 in Harpswell, 2,419 to 1,160 in Cape Elizabeth, 4,314 to 2,944 in Scarborough, and 4,322 to 2,642 in South Portland in unofficial results Tuesday night. In New Gloucester, however, the refer-

endum lost 899-727, and in Harrison it lost 527-284. It also narrowly lost in Windham, 2,292 to 2,170, and Standish, 1,280 to 1,217. In Gray, the bond was approved by a razor-thin margin, 1,166 to 1,152. It was also approved in Gorham. The 34-year-old Civic Center on Spring Street in Portland hosts concerts, shows, conferences and the Portland Pirates professional hockey team. Pirates owner Brian Petrovek has said the team will sign a 10-year lease for use of the Civic Center if the bond passed. Pratt said lease negotiations will begin as soon as possible. The Civic Center board will now begin the process of choosing an architect. Construction is expected to begin next summer. The total cost of the 25-year bond, including interest, has been estimated at $55 million. The bond will pay for improvements, including new seats, wheelchair-accessible seating, additional restrooms and concourse space, improved backstage areas, club seating, a new loading dock and external facade improvements. There will be approximately the same number of seats after renovation as there are now – 7,500 for concerts, 6,800 fixed. The Civic Center has been losing money for the past few years, which proponents of the bond said was because of the current state of the building. Trustees said the improvements will be paid for by the additional revenue generated by the updated building. Opponents, however, said taxpayers

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/105503

should not be asked to pay for an entertainment center when people are struggling to pay their own bills, and questioned whether the additional revenue would be enough to cover the repairs. “Now we need to hold county and Civic Center officials accountable for delivering the many benefits they promised voters in exchange for our $55 million,” said Portland attorney Dave Canarie, who opposed the bond. There was no organized opposition to the referendum, and Canarie said those individuals who openly opposed the bond were up against a financially well-supported organization. “Proponents of the bond had a massive campaign war chest and used it very effectively,” he said. At the polls Tuesday voters were mixed in their thoughts on the bond.

“It’s a lot of money, but that place is a dump,” said Portland resident Sandie Barr, who supported the bond. However, in Falmouth, where turnout was higher than expected, voters were not as quick to support the Civic Center. “I think the Civic Center would be better suited to be outside of the downtown area,” said Falmouth Town Councilor Will Armitage. “And it seems like a lot of money.” He said he did not support the bond. Krista Riccioni, who brought her two young children, Grace and Ryan, to vote with her, said she didn’t mind voting yes to support the Civic Center bond. But her daughter, Grace, was particularly interested in the two casino questions on the ballot. “I don’t think gambling is right,” she said. “People want to get money, but they just lose money.” Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or eparkhurst@theforecaster.net.

South Portland OKs police pacts, fixes for CTV, pool By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — Repairs for the air system at the municipal pool and new camera equipment for the town’s publicaccess cable TV station were approved by the City Council on Monday. Councilors also approved new, three-year contracts for Police Department officers. Town Manager Jim Gailey said there have been operational and mechanical problems that need to be addressed to ensure safety and air quality at the pool. “It’s been an on-and-off problem for a number of years now, and it’s time to get it

fixed,” he said. Councilors approved an order to spend $105,800 for repairs to the air handling unit at the municipal pool. The 14-year-old unit is responsible for dehumidifying, ventilating and heating the air at the pool. The job will go to AirTemp of South Portland, and will cover the cost of replacing parts and training Recreation Center staff on controlling the machinery. Tim Gato, assistant director of Parks and Recreation, said fixing the air system is a top priority in his department. “If the air’s not moving, it can get downright oppressive in there,” he said. About $86,000 was set aside for the project in this year’s budget. Councilors decided to move the additional $19,000 from undesignated funds. Another order was passed Monday to spend nearly $17,700 on new cameras and a new control system for South Portland Community Television, which records and broadcasts city business, including City Council and Planning Board meetings. In a memo to councilors, Gailey said the technology at City Hall was created in the 1980s to be used as security cameras. The gear in Council Chambers is five to 15 years old, he said, and the control system is 15 years old, has been failing and is no longer supported by its manufacturer, Panasonic. Tony Vigue, who runs SPC-TV, said the city desperately needs the new gear. The current equipment “has been soldered and jumpered and just about everything you can do to keep it going for 15 years,” he said. The bid went to Access A/V of Concord,

N.H., and will pay for four Sony video cameras, one control unit and associated cables and power supplies. Gailey said the result should be more reliable, higher-quality recordings. The new Police Department contracts are with two unions. The South Portland Police Patrol Association, which represents 41 officers below the rank of sergeant, will receive a 2 percent raise for the first half of 2012; a 1.5 percent pay increase for one year starting July 1, 2012, and another 1.5 percent increase for one year after that. The contract expires

June 30, 2014. The South Portland Police Command and Supervisory Unit, which represents nine lieutenants and sergeants, will receive a 2 percent raise for the first half of 2012, a 1.5 percent raise for one year starting July 1, 2012, and another 2 percent raise for the last year of the contract, which also ends on June 30, 2014. Both contracts also included increases in stipends and clothing allowances. Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @riocarmine.

News briefs Cape students to travel to Costa Rica

Police urge vigilance after Scarborough crimes

CAPE ELIZABETH — The School Board approved a trip for about a dozen high school Spanish students to Costa Rica in February. The students will travel with Spanish teacher Mark Pendarvis, will be gone for about two weeks during February vacation, and will miss six days of school. At a Tuesday, Nov. 8 meeting, Pendarvis said while in Costa Rica the students will teach English to elementary and middle school students, study Spanish and have time to complete their own homework. Then in March, students from Cost Rica will visit Cape Elizabeth for two weeks, Pedarvis said. In other business, new School Board members will be sworn in on Monday, Dec. 12, and the first meeting as a new board will be Tuesday, Dec. 13.

SCARBOROUGH — Police here are urging residents to take extra care in making sure their homes are locked. From Oct. 1 through Nov. 7, nine homes and two commercial buildings in the town were burglarized, according to police reports. “That’s quite a few for one month,” said Sgt. Rick Rouse on Monday. Rouse said charges have been filed against one suspected burglar, and officers are close to arresting two others. He did not believe any of the burglaries were related. Many of the burglaries took place during the day when residents weren’t home, Rouse said. He stressed the importance of locking doors and of neighbors being vigilant if they see strangers lurking on nearby properties.

Residents get chance to craft South Portland’s future

Forum will shape Comprehensive Plan revisions

By Mario Moretto SOUTH PORTLAND — Residents will have a chance to influence the next 10 years of land use and zoning rules at a planning forum later this month. They are invited to meet at the South Portland Community Center at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17. After a brief presentation, they’ll break out into work groups to tackle the future of land use in different parts of the city and comment on proposals

from the Comprehensive Plan Committee. Planning Director Tex Haeuser said the input will help the committee refine its policies ahead of the deadline next year for the city to finish revisions to the Comprehensive Plan, which guides city policy. The state requires municipalities to update their plans every 10 years, Haeuser said. “Committed individuals have banded together repeatedly to imagine the future and

make a difference here,” Dawn Roberts, a member of the Comprehensive Plan Committee, said in an email Monday. Few issues have driven as many people to public hearings this year as the debate around zoning and design standards in the Willard Square neighborhood.

Finding a good medium is rare sentence than the number of additional years I’d be waiting to meet Mr. Wonderful. It was depressing. And No Sugar even more disturbing was the fact that my “three to five years” of waiting was reportedly going to yield a man who would, according to her, be tall, as much as seven to eight years my junior, and have strawberry blond hair. Now, I come from a family of northern Europeans. Romantically, I have never been attracted to blondes. I generally lust after men with dark hair. AdditionSandi Amorello ally, I told her I had already dated the very man she was describing, and it had not gone particularly well. The next vision this woman had was of a piece of

Have you ever been to a medium? Not a psychic. A medium. I saw a medium once. She told me all manner of fascinating things. And at the end of an hour filled with insights into children, business and family relationships, I exclaimed, “But wait! What about my love life?!” To which she dryly responded: “Three to five. That’s what I’m seeing. Three to five.” To my widowed ears, this sounded more like a prison

meat. As in, filet mignon. On a plate. I think she said it was raw. OK, so this could yield many interpretations. I projected that perhaps the meat on the plate was a reference to men mistakenly attempting to take me out to dinner at the Outback Steakhouse; beefy men, or men cooking up filets for me on their back-porch grills. Or maybe I was, indeed, just supposed to be viewing the men in this “three-to-five-year” waiting period as pieces of meat – shallow yet enjoyable ways to pass the time. That seemed a bit cold-hearted, but hey, I’d paid the woman a sum of cash equal to our monthly cable bill, so I needed a positive spin. Waiting half a decade for the arrival of Prince Charming just wasn’t doing it for me – unless he was a wealthy cattle rancher who could get me an unlimited complimentary supply of my favorite cowboy boots from that little shop in Boston. As I left her “office,” trailing behind the friend whose suggestion it was to venture into the world of those with a window into the future, I remember feeling a bit upset

No Sugar Added from previous page at the dismal dating situation this medium chick had left me to contemplate. Really? Three to five more years? As a woman who had already been dating for half a decade, this seemed unfair and unnecessarily cruel news. Especially after I’d paid her in cash. At first, I rebelled against her unfair sentence. I mean, I don’t really believe in most of that new-agey stuff anyway. I certainly saw no reason to allow some selfproclaimed medium’s incense-induced prediction to put a gray cloud over the next 36 to 60 months of my life – potentially tossing me into a dating tailspin. In the end, I decided to make the most of it. I thought, “OK. Great. If this is to be my plight for the next three to five years, I’ll just resign myself to my fate. And I’ll Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/105328

relish the abundance of dinners out for filet mignon, cooked medium rare – with sauteed mushrooms and a nice bottle of cabernet sauvignon, with blackberry undertones.” Still, it’s tough to get excited about a date when you’re already armed with the knowledge he’s a cosmic no-go. Even if he does grill a mean shish kebab. A full year passed after “My Favorite Medium’s” prediction, and sure enough, no Mr. Fabulous. Then summer No. 2 came and went. There were a couple of possible Mr. Wonderfuls, but no real deal. Next summer will mark the end of year No. 3 of my sentencing. Hopefully, by then, I’ll no longer be eying the guy at the butcher counter at Whole Foods – and my rare medium will be proved correct. About everything but the strawberry blond hair. Meanwhile, at least I don’t have to worry about becoming anemic. No Sugar Added is Cape Elizabeth resident Sandi Amorello’s biweekly take on life, love, death, dating and single parenting.

A happy bird is a $100 bird A couple of years back, we ordered a goose for Christmas instead of our customary turkey. For some odd reason, how much The Universal the all-natural, freerange, organic bird was going to cost hadn’t occur to me until I went to pick it up at the corner grocer. Very tasty, but it’s hard to really enjoy a $100 goose. This Thanksgiving, we have had a request from one of our environmentally conscious daughters and her husband for a “happy bird.” They don’t care whether Edgar Allen Beem the turkey is certified organic as long as the turkey “had a life,” meaning it was not factory farmed, raised in a cage and pumped up on steroids until its breast was so big it couldn’t stand up. So I went down to the corner grocer to place an order for a happy bird. An organic turkey from just up the road would have cost $4.69 a pound. Reluctant to follow a $100 goose with a $100 gobbler, I ordered an all-natural turkey from up the coast for $3.99 per pound. As it happens I had caught a glimpse of those $80 Thanksgiving turkeys on my way back from Belfast a couple of days before, a flock of hundreds of big white birds scratching around in the mud in a pen on the side of Route 1. They didn’t look all that happy to me, but then maybe, as the local grocer suggested, they had just been rounded up for market and had been happily roaming the farm until then. Spending $80 on a turkey (about four times as much as supermarket bird) strikes me as something of an exercise in feel-good environmentalism, but if it makes my family happy, so be it. Food is about my only extravagance. We’ve lived in the same little house for 30 years, don’t go on exotic vacations, don’t drive expensive cars, and I buy most of my clothes at the L.L. Bean employee store. The pants I’m wearing (in fact all my pants) cost 25 cents, so I guess I can afford an $80 bird once a year. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a family of two between the ages of 51 and 70 (that’s us, sweetheart) can eat a nutritious diet on a thrifty

Notebook

plan for $81 a week, on a low-cost plan for $103 a week, a moderate plan for $128 a week, and a liberal plan for $160. I guess that makes us banquet-fed pigs at $200 a week. That’s what I just calculated we spend on food and that doesn’t include takeout pho from the noodle bar and a dollar a day for my morning bagel. I do most of the grocery shopping and, yes, I do tend to splurge. But, in case you hadn’t noticed, food prices hit an all-time high in February and haven’t backed down much. Weather extremes caused by climate change, smaller crop yields, diversion of crops for bio-fuels, and higher demand driven by population growth and improved standards of living in places like China are generally blamed for the increase in the cost of food. I used to worry about children in India starving. Now I wonder how a young family with a couple of kids can afford to eat. When I ran into my sister-in-law Marji at the supermarket a few weeks ago, I asked her if she had noticed the increases. “Everything costs $5 now,” Marji observed. I checked out her thesis as I did my shopping. Pork chops, $4.49 per pound. Cheerios, $4.30. Kraft Mac ‘n’ Cheese, $4.63. Fritos, $4.90. Haagen Daz rum raisin ice cream, $4.59. Mixed nuts, $5.99. Weetabix, $5.47. Fresh pollock, $4.99. Yep, Marj was right, everything at the grocery store does cost $5 now. I do feel guilty about spending so much and eating so well when others have so little, but the whole concept of food justice is somewhat new to me. On one hand, paying the true cost of food is a fundamental tenet of ethical food consumption. Eating local and eating organic cost more, like that $100 goose and $80 turkey. On the other hand, if we just ate peanut butter sandwiches for Thanksgiving, we’d save money that we could donate to Oxfam or the local food pantry. Of course, with the drought in the South driving peanut prices up from $450 a ton last year to $1,200 a ton this year, we’ll probably soon be paying $5 a pound for peanut butter, too. Maybe I should have just ordered the $100 organic bird. Freelance journalist Edgar Allen Beem lives in Yarmouth. The Universal Notebook is his personal, weekly look at the world around him.

Stopped cold 11/3 at 11:42 a.m. Police say that in the past few years, door-to-door meat salesmen have become a problem in the region, with some vendors selling suspect meat or hawking their cuts without the required permits. So when patrol officers saw a truck marked "Steak House Steaks" with a freezer on its bed, they pulled in to Woodrock Drive to check it out. After identifying the salesmen, police discovered that the driver, Anthony L. Lapio, 20, of Saco, had a warrant out for his arrest. Although the freezer was unplugged, the meat was still frozen, so no charges were filed. Because the other meat man had no license, police had to tow the truck.

Spray-painted scrawls, including "sorry for your wall" and possible tag names "Blunts" and "Suspect" were found. The word "Buddah" – probably a misspelling of "Buddha" – was found on a community services bus. Police said graffiti can't be graded for spelling, but that the two teens could face up to a year in jail if convicted for the class D misdemeanor.

South Portland falls one yard short (Ed. Note: For additional photos and a box score from this game, please visit theforecaster. net) By Tom Minervino SACO — A single yard was what separated victory from defeat, moving on from going home, in Saturday’s Western Class A semifinal football game. South Portland senior running back Joey DiBiase was stacked up a yard short of the goal line on fourth-and-goal from the 2 with 2.1 seconds left as the No. 3 Red Riots fell to No. 2 Thornton Academy 20-15 in Saturday’s game. The Golden Trojans (9-1) move on to face No. 1 Cheverus (10-0) in the regional championship. South Portland finishes its best season since 2000 at 7-3. The Red Riots handed Thornton Academy its only loss of the regular season, 20-16 on Sept. 9. Last year’s South Portland squad ended a nine-year playoff drought for the program but fell in the quarterfinals. This year, the team made it a step further, hosting and defeating Sanford 33-13 in the quarters, its first postseason victory since 2000. And the Red Riots were ohso-close to reaching the regional

game. The two-point conversion attempt failed. Thornton Academy was quickly forced to punt after South Portland senior Zac Gillette dropped Golden Trojan junior quarterback

Eric Christensen for a 2-yard loss on third-and-4. The Red Riots took over at their own 39 with 6:26 remaining. After a holding penalty pushed them back, senior quarterback Michael

Salvatore completed passes to seniors Logan Gaddar (8 yards) and Max Porter (12 yards) to get reach midfield and pick up a first down. Three straight runs by DiBiase got South Portland another first down at the Thornton 36, but two negative runs and an incompletion set up a fourth-and-14 at the 40. Salvatore was able to find senior Dan Medici down the right sideline for a 25-yard gain. Medici made a fabulous diving grab over his shoulder while dragging a leg inbounds. After two short runs and an incompletion, South Portland faced fourth-and-8 from the 13 and called its final timeout to set up a play. While Salvatore’s pass to the end zone was intercepted, Thornton Academy was flagged for pass interference, giving the Red Riots first-and-goal at the 7 with under 50 seconds play and no timeouts. On first down, Salvatore kept the ball on a bootleg, but found no room on the edge and ran out of bounds to stop the clock after a gain of a yard. An offsides penalty on Thornton Academy moved the ball to the 3. DiBiase picked up a yard on second down, but the continued page 16

Tables turned on Red Storm in state final Cape Elizabeth ousted by By Michael Hoffer Mountain Valley again A year ago, the Scarborough girls’ soccer team was as close to perfect as any in state history. This fall, the Red Storm finally met its match. After winning all 18 games and allowing only one goal (on a penalty kick) during a first-ever Class A championship season in 2010, Scarborough’s bid for a repeat was extinguished Saturday by the squad which it beat to win the state game last year, Bangor. This time around, the Rams concluded their season-long domination with a surprisingly easy 4-0 victory over the Red Storm, which ended Scarborough’s season at 14-2-2. “It was a tough one,” said Red Storm coach Mike Farley. “My kids played hard and really tried to turn the momentum around, but we were never able to get into our game because of the amount of pressure their backs and midfielders put on us.”

Not this year Even though it ultimately fell short, Scarborough produced an abundance of memories again.

After graduating some key contributors from last year’s squad, the 2011 Red Storm barely missed a beat, losing only once in the regular season, 1-0 at home to Gorham, way back on Sept. 10 and tying two other games by 1-1 scores, at home against Cheverus and Thornton Academy. After surrendering six goals in the first eight games,

(Ed. Note: For the full version of this story, with a box score, please visit theforecaster.net) By Michael Hoffer RUMFORD — Those who say history doesn’t repeat itself ought to join the Cape Elizabeth football team in Rumford in the month of November. Friday evening, amid the chill from the elements and opposing fans, the Capers met the defending Class B state champion Mountain Valley Falcons and for the fourth time since 2006 saw their season come to an end in the shadow of the smokestacks. In a Western B semifinal, Cape Elizabeth fought valiantly and had its chances, but ultimately went down to a 13-0 defeat, ending its season at 7-3, while the Falcons improved to 9-1 and will have an opportunity to avenge their lone loss next Saturday when they go Wells for the regional final. The Capers fell behind late in the first period after a special teams breakdown led to a returned punt for a score and late in the first

half, Mountain Valley embarked on a long TD drive, but the Cape Elizabeth defense held the fort from there and kept hope alive. The Capers had a couple good chances to score in the second half before being ultimately turned away by the staunch Falcons’ defense and that was all she wrote. “It’s always a great effort with these guys. Always,” said Cape Elizabeth coach Aaron Filieo. “We couldn’t score. We had a great drive and had a couple times where we sniffed, but we couldn’t finish. We made too many mistakes. It wasn’t for a lack of effort or trying. We certainly left everything on the field which at the end of the day is what we ask for.”

Deja vu

Since joining Class B in 2005, Cape Elizabeth has measured itself by how competitive it was against Mountain Valley, which has long set the standard for excellence in the region. The Capers lost the first meetcontinued page 18

South Portland from page 15 clock continued to run. Salvatore spiked the ball on third down to stop the clock with 7.2 seconds left. DiBiase — a workhorse all day, picking up 101 yards on 29 carries — took the handoff on fourth down with the game and the season hanging in the balance. Met almost immediately, his legs churned to cover half the needed distance, but he was brought down feet short of the winning touchdown. “We made a great play down at the goal line to turn them away,” said Thornton Academy coach Kevin Kezal. It was a tough outcome to take for a South Portland team that outgained Thornton Academy 305-162 and overcame three turnovers to put itself in a position to win. “They responded to adversity a lot today against a very talented Thornton Academy team,” said South Portland coach Steve Stinson. “Like we talk about with our guys, we try to put performances and work together that we are proud of. The scoreboard isn’t our only barometer. “We tell them all year long, sometimes you’re going to win one and sometimes you’re going to lose one. We won one earlier in the year (against Thornton Academy), and now we lost one. It by no means

reflects on the quality of their character. It’s going to hurt now and it’s going to hurt for a while, but they’ll realize in life that there are going to be bigger things down the road.” Stinson praised his seniors for the work they’ve done over their four years, bringing the proud program back to contender status. It started even before the players reached the varsity level. “This senior class, as freshmen they were 7-1,” Stinson said. “They only lost to Wells that year. They’ve been amazing. That’s what makes football so special. They worked for four years. In the summer, the offseason. That’s a lot of work. They’ve been able to flip a culture. It wasn’t that long ago we were 0-16 (combined record in 2005 and 2006) and just trying to win a football game. And now we’re an inch away from the Western Maine championship game and it’s all because of their work.” South Portland had a tough opening quarter on the offensive end, turning the ball over twice and failing to capitalize on good field position. After forcing the Golden Trojans to go four-and-out to open the game, the Red Riots also had to punt away their opening possession, but Thornton Academy fumbled on the return and Medici recovered at the Golden Trojan 35. On second-and-5 from the 19, Salvatore’s pass was tipped by

Libby blocked the point-after attempt by senior Brendan Horton. The Golden Trojans took a 14-6 lead with 30 seconds left in the half as Libby ran in from a yard out and Briggs added the kick.

made it hard for us to sustain any possession. Their forwards played quick combinations and were able to get in behind us and that put (senior) Katie Mader (our keeper) in a tough position trying to make saves with players coming in alone on her.” Scarborough has now won 32 games, a state championship and a regional crown the past two seasons. “I’m very proud of my team this year,” Farley said. “I loved coaching them, they had a great work ethic and they all have high soccer IQs. We graduated 12 seniors last year, seven starters and the rest were

The teams had met three times prior in the postseason with the Red Storm winning twice, but the Rams took the most recent meeting, 1-0, in the 2006 regional final. This time, the game was scoreless into the final minute when junior Jessica Meader pounced on a loose ball and buried it to give Scarborough a 1-0 win and set up a state final rematch. Bangor outscored its regular season foes, 80-8, in winning all 14 contests. As the top seed in Eastern A, the Rams advanced to states with wins over Lawrence (7-0), Waterville (5-0) and Brunswick (2-0). Saturday afternoon, in a game played at Falmouth High School, Bangor left no doubt that it was the best team in Class A. The Red Storm fell behind on a goal 10 minutes in and after senior defensive standout Emily Tolman was lost to injury late in the first half, the Rams dominated the second half, scoring three times to end all doubt. “Bangor really came out and really put us on our heels with the amount of pressure they put on us,” Farley said. “When we got control of the ball, we were being pressured by one or two players every time. We gave up the first goal on a play that we mis-cleared and Bangor made us pay for that mistake by playing the ball to

the middle and the ball headed right into the left side of the goal. “We held on the rest of the half at 1-0, but taking Emily out of the back allowed them to get in behind us on a couple occasions. They scored about 10 minutes into the second half and that really put us in a bad situation where we had to try to press forward to try to get one back. Bangor made us pay for trying to go forward and really kept the pressure on us throughout the second half. Bangor really came out and from the opening whistle.

important role players. We had a lot of juniors step up and assume starting spots and leadership roles on this team and after some early season stumbles, while we tried to figure out how we were going to play, we ended the season and went into the playoffs playing some really good soccer. “To make it back to the state finals having basically lost half the team, is a real accomplishment and says a lot about my players this year. They had a never-say-die attitude and basically willed continued page 19

Cape Elizabeth from page 15 ing with the Falcons, 36-23, at home in 2005, but by the following season were in the playoffs and went to Rumford for the regional final, only to fall, 47-6. The next year, Cape Elizabeth beat Mountain Valley for the first time, 16-14, in the regular season finale, but in the regional final two weeks later, the Capers couldn’t win on their home field and dropped a tough 10-0 decision. In 2008, Cape Elizabeth got back to the regional final, but had to go to the Falcons and dropped a close 25-19 decision. The Capers finally broke through in 2009, downing visiting Mountain Valley, 34-0, in the regular season finale, then rallying past the Falcons in the regional final, 23-13. Cape Elizabeth would lose the Class B state championship game, 35-21, to Leavitt.

The Falcons won the state title a year ago, but didn’t have to go through the Capers, who were ousted by Wells in the semifinals. Cape Elizabeth went 6-2 this fall. After losing at Wells in a close game, 14-6, in the opener, the Capers won six in a row. The regular season ended with a 20-14 home loss to Mountain Valley. As the No. 3 seed, the Capers welcomed No. 6 Greely in last week’s quarterfinals and prevailed, 21-9, to advance. Mountain Valley entered this season being advertised as a weaker version than the juggernauts of the past, but other than a loss at Wells in week six, the Falcons passed every test (outscoring the opposition by an average of 25 points) and earned the No. 2 seed. In the quarterfinals, Mountain Valley dominated No. 7 Spruce Mountain, 48-0. Friday, the Falcons did what they had to

do to deny the Capers once more. Cape Elizabeth forced turnovers on the first two Mountain Valley drives, but its offense was held in check and the game turned late in the first period on a Capers’ punt from deep in their own territory. Somehow, Falcons senior Izaak Mills was able to rush in untouched and block the kick. He tried to pick up the ball inside the 10, but wasn’t able to grab it. Senior Taylor Carey swooped in to grab the loose pigskin at the 2 and fell into the end zone for the game’s first score. “It’s simple,” Filieo said. “It comes down to execution and mistakes, and we made more than they did at key times. Special teams always factor into big games and they had a big special teams play. The guy that was supposed to block that gap moved and thought it was going to be illegal motion and a dead play. The guy came flying in and he never even saw him. You can’t account for or practice those types of plays. It’s just one of those things.” Mountain Valley extended its lead in the second quarter. The Falcons took possession at their 15 with 8:22 left in the half and embarked on a 17 play, 85 yard drive that chewed up 7 minutes, 3 seconds and ended with another TD, this one a 4-yard pass from senior Zach Radcliffe to junior Jacob Theriault. Mills missed the extra point wide left, but with just 1:19 remaining in the half, the Falcons had a 13-0 lead and the visitors could do nothing to cut into that deficit prior to the break. Cape Elizabeth’s offense would be much more productive in the second half, but could never find the end zone. The visitors’ first drive of the third quarter would end in utter frustration and disappointment. Starting at their 30, the Capers embarked on a 17-play march that ate up 8:12, but ultimately led to no points. Behind the bruising running of 300-pound senior Andrew Lavallee, Cape Elizabeth drove all the way to the Falcons’ 5, but a false start penalty backed the Capers to the 10 and on fourth-and-goal, a pass from junior Connor Maguire was intercepted by Mountain Valley senior Isaac Roberts just in front of the goal line. Roberts returned the pick 51 yards to the Capers’ 48 and the threat had

been extinguished. “We had the right play called that we haven’t run all year,” Filieo said. “We were waiting to use it and we got a false start. We had to go with a different play we weren’t as comfortable with. On fourth down, (Connor) chucked it up hoping one of our guys could make a play.” The Falcons went three-and-out and Cape Elizabeth began its next drive at the 15. A 20-yard pass from Maguire to senior Derek Roberts gave the visitors some breathing room and on the first play of the final stanza, Maguire threw a quick hitter to senior Bill Brooks to the Mountain Valley 47, a gain of 25 yards. Four plays later, Lavallee ran for five on fourth-and-3 to set up a first down at the 35, but after an incomplete pass, a hold negated a 13-yard Roberts run and pushed the Capers back to the 41. Maguire then threw three straight incomplete passes and Cape Elizabeth didn’t get close to the end zone again. “I had a really good feeling about tonight,” Filieo said. “We had our chances, but we just didn’t capitalize.”

Great effort

Lavallee finished his stellar Capers’ career by rushing 22 times for 94 yards. “(Andrew) was fighting,” said Filieo, who spent several minutes in the postgame consoling his senior leaders. “He was really working hard to bring the team into the end zone.” Cape Elizabeth was hindered by seven penalties which went for 75 yards, one turnover and the blocked punt. The Capers finished with 159 yards of offense. While disappointed with the result, Cape Elizabeth was very pleased with its season. “I think all the kids really played resilient,” Filieo said. “I couldn’t be more proud of the team. We had a little bit of a down year last year. These guys came into the season with high expectations. Not just wins and losses, but to sort of bring the team back to that cohesiveness and brotherhood and the great junior and senior leadership did it. Losing isn’t good and we won’t pretend it is, but what (the guys) need to do is step and back and look what they did because it was outstanding.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at mhoffer@ theforecaster.net.

Horton made it 14-9 with a 22-yard field goal with 7:33 left in the third quarter. The South Portland defense again held, but Salvatore (12-of-22 for 134 yards passing and 67 rushing yards on 16 attempts) was picked off by senior Kyle Forbes on the Red Riots’ next possession, giving Thornton Academy the ball on at the South Portland 34. Five plays later, Christensen connected with Tarbox for a 22-yard touchdown. The conversion pass failed and Thornton led 20-9 with 43 seconds remaining in the third. “We’re two pretty even teams,” Kezal said. “My hat’s off to Steve and South Portland.

‘August: Osage County’ is powerful drama By Scott Andrews One of the most powerful stage dramas in recent years was Tracy Letts’ “August: Osage County,” which opened on Broadway in 2007 and ran a year and a half – a remarkable performance for a straight play. When Good Theater presented its Maine premiere last fall, it broke all of the company’s attendance records, and many would-be attendees had to be turned away. So it’s no surprise that artistic director Brian P. Allen decided to bring it back for the 2011-2012 season. And equally remarkably, he’s got 12 of the 13 actors he had last year. “August: Osage County” runs through Nov. 20 at the top of Munjoy Hill in Portland. Two miles west on Congress Street, One Longfellow Square has an interesting lineup of shows. Singer-songwriter-guitarist Leon Redbone appears on Friday. The James Montgomery Blues Band takes the stage on Saturday and David Peterson’s Old Time Country Revue is featured on Tuesday.

‘August: Osage County’ One of the most powerful American plays in recent decades is Tracy Letts’ “August: Osage County,” a darkly comedic drama about the disintegration, implosion and self-destruction of three generations of a Midwestern family. The playwright is a member of Chicago’s Steppenwolf Company, which first produced the script in 2006. When it transferred to Broadway in 2007, “August: Osage County” won both the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. (It also won four other Tonys.) Good Theater produced the Maine premiere last fall, and it was a sensational success, topping all attendance records in the company’s history. It’s back for Good Theater’s 2011-2012 season, and its just a powerful as it was last year. “August: Osage County” is a sprawling play with a cast of 13 and a huge set. The original production recreated a three-story house; Good Theater’s set, designed by Steve Underwood, spills out of its available space in all dimensions. Although the formal time span covers only a few weeks, the play extensively revisits long-

past episodes in the lives of the characters, giving the impression that decades roll by. Director Brian P. Allen has assembled a top-notch professional cast. The action mostly revolves around the confrontation of two bitterly opposed characters, an aging woman and her middle-age daughter. The drama begins when patriarch of the family – who describes himself as a “world-class alcoholic” – goes missing and the family gathers at the homestead in rural Oklahoma. The first act concludes with the sheriff announcing that his body has been found at the bottom of a local reservoir, an apparent suicide. The many conflicts that were set up in the first act reach a climax in the second, and an uneasy resolution is reached in the third. Both of the two principal women characters get bravura performances. Lisa Stathoplos is sensational as the 65-yearold matriarch of the family, a melancholy, strong-willed woman who is addicted to prescription drugs and possesses a razoredged tongue. She’s more than matched by Kathleen Kimball as the conflicted daughter who is vainly attempting to keep her own family together – her professor husband is having an affair with one of his college students – while she simultaneously tries to control her mother’s kith and kin. The language is at times very crude and the entire experience is an emotional roller-coaster. It has much the character of a multi-episode soap opera, as hidden secrets are revealed at regular intervals during the play’s three-hour-plus running time. Several secondary plots are interwoven throughout. Incest and adultery are involved, and each of the 13 characters has to work through his or her own set of demons. Most of them are unsuccessful. There’s a lot of humor involved, and Letts’ wry observations on many subjects add much to the theatrical experience. I’ve been attending Good Theater since its inception, and “August: Osage County”

ize in recreating old-time music and another is a band led by a harmonica player from Boston. Friday, Nov. 11: Leon Redbone has been touring his one-man vaudeville act for 30plus years and he’s recorded 15 albums. His specialty is recreating songs that were popular in the first half of the 20th century – music from the ragtime era, the Roaring Twenties, Great Depression and World War II. Accompanying himself on guitar – he’s a master of the finger picking style – Redbone provides an intimate, understated, low-key experience. His costume is part of his shtick: Panama hat, dark sunglasses, white coat, black trousers and black string tie. He’s got quite a legion of fans, including Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan. Saturday, Nov. 12: In 1970, while attending Boston University, James Montgomery formed the James Montgomery Band. His inimitable harmonica playing combined with his incredibly energetic live shows led to the band’s quick climb up the New England music scene ladder. Within two years, the James Montgomery Band was among the hottest acts in Boston – along with J. Geils and Aerosmith – and they were quickly signed to a multialbum deal with Capricorn Records. To date that’s resulted in six releases. Tuesday, Nov. 15: David Peterson once intended to enter the ministry, but he found his true calling in resurrecting and performing old-time country music. He is best known for forming 1946, a bluegrass band that was numerically named for the starting date of Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys, the genre’s seminal ensemble. His most recent project is the Old-Time Country Revue, which looks at Nashville music during the 1940s through 1960s, channeling long-ago Grand Ole Opry stars such as Hank Williams Sr. and Jimmy Rogers. One Longfellow Square is at the corner of Congress and State streets in downtown Portland. All performances are at 8 p.m. Call 761-1757.

from page 1 tial zone, but the size of the project falls outside current rules and required approval from the ZBA. “The only concerns about this project (at the Planning Board meeting) were related to density and parking,” said Gene Libby, the attorney representing the hotel owners. “The Trumans heard those concerns and made adequate changes.” Unlike the reception the Trumans received from the ZBA, some Pine Point residents turned out to decry the plan, which they said still tries to cram too many units into less than an acre of property. “To imagine there would be 10 units in this footprint is absurd,” said Mo Erickson, a resident of Pine Point. She said she is concerned the condos would become serial rentals and attract raucous residents. “It would be like the Lighthouse Inn Block Party Condominium,” she said. On that point, there was some concern from the ZBA, too. Most of the properties on Pine Point are rented at some point in the year, but Maroon expressed concern about the effects of serial renting of the inn.

Owners of the Lighthouse Inn at Pine Point received approval Wednesday from the Scarborough Zoning Board of Approval to turn their 22-unit hotel into 10 townhouse-style condominiums.

Though he said he “really wanted” to support the proposal, he said he’d only give it the thumbs up if the Trumans agreed to follow Fannie Mae condominium guidelines. That would limit the number of times a unit can be rented per year, and prohibit individuals from owning more than one unit in the property.

from page 1 Board member. Massengill was at the polls at Scarborough High School when the results were announced. “We were very optimistic before, and we were made even more optimistic by turnout throughout the day,” she said. “We never really thought about what would happen if it didn’t pass.” Including absentee ballots, 7,712 residents voted in Scarborough this year, for a turnout of more than 55 percent. High participation didn’t surprise Town Clerk Tody Justice, who said Scarborough’s turnout always trumps the state level. She was at the polls all day Tuesday, and said one issue drove numbers this year: “It was the school question,” Justice said. “We had a lot of young families voting.” The $39 million plan, which could total as much as $66 million with 30 years of debt service, will pay for a 163,000-squarefoot building with a geothermal heating and cooling system. The plan calls for 40 classrooms and is designed to accommodate a 15 percent student population growth. The third- through fifth-grade school currently has about 775 students. The additional tax burden would amount to $59 per $100,000 of property valuation, according to supporters. That means a tax increase of about $118 per year for a home valued at $200,000. Voters at the polls Tuesday said they supported the bond because they valued Scarborough schools. But many had a more personal reason to support the new Wentworth: they had been students there

themselves. “I went to school there at the old Wentworth,” said Zac Barrett, who was at the polls with his wife, Jessica, and their young daughter. “That school is in desperate need.” Tuesday’s election was the second time Scarborough voters have been asked to replace Wentworth. In 2006, a $38.3 million proposal failed, 5,176 to 3,316. Ann-Mayre Dexter, principal at Wentworth, served on the committees that drafted the 2006 plan and this year’s proposal. She said the measure failed last time around because it was coupled with a $16 million renovation to Scarborough Middle School, which also failed. “Voters had just approved millions for a new high school,” she said. “And in Scarborough, we still think of the middle school as ‘new’ even though it’s 16 years old. It just wasn’t a good package.” This year, Dexter said, the committee devoted much more effort to public education. There were community forums, a website, videos, brochures, a booth at Summerfest and more. It was a real campaign, she said. This time around, supporters of the school bond also formed a political action committee, Citizens for a Safe and Sustainable Wentworth. By Oct. 27, the PAC had raised almost $7,900. It spent nearly $5,500 on signs, T-shirts, brochures and other campaign materials. “As a building committee, we made a considerable effort to get a lot of people out to vote,” said Paul Koziel, chairman of the Wentworth Building Committee. “As a result of that, we had a great result.”

Maroon said he was taking such a strong stance because allowing a condo owner to rent their property week-byweek would effectively make the Lighthouse Inn a “condotel,” which he said drives down the value of the property and creates a “blight” on the neighborhood. The Trumans agreed. “The type of places we’re building will attract homeowners,” Nicholas Truman said. The Zoning Board ruled that changing from a seasonal 22-unit hotel to a year-round 10-unit condominium would not substantially increase the intensity of use at the site, or negatively impact traffic in the area. “The big concern was density and parking,” board member Martin Macisso said. “That’s been addressed ... I think it’s a very attractive improvement.” With ZBA approval in hand, the Trumans can move forward with renovations to the property. But first, the Planning Department staff will have to examine the plan to determine whether the buildup triggers site plan review. Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@ theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @riocarmine.

“It was a great victory,” he said. Leading up to Election Day, not everyone in Scarborough supported the big-ticket proposal. At a forum held three weeks before the polls opened, some residents questioned the size and scope of the plan. Many said they understood Wentworth needed work, but that the plan should have been smaller. “Money doesn’t grow on trees out here,” resident David Green said at that forum. “It doesn’t fall like leaves to the ground.” On Tuesday, some voters voiced similar concerns. “I voted no on Wentworth,” said Larry

Bridgham. “It should have been a little more austere in these tough times.” But with those questions answered at the ballot box, the committee has more work ahead. Final design decisions will have to be made before the project can be put out to bid. The committee estimates that if everything goes according to plan, construction could start by next fall. “Now we can seriously get down to work now and start looking at the true design of the building and all the innards that make a great school,” Dexter said.

from page 1 ors in the running for four seats, at least one newcomer was bound to be elected, with a possibility for up to three. Lacking name recognition and a record to be judged on, challengers often find it difficult to best incumbents in an election. So, the question ahead of the election was about which candidates could pull off victory against well-known town officials. “You never win the first time,” Andriulli said Tuesday night after the results – and his loss – were announced at Scarborough High School. “Maybe I thought more people would know my name.” Andriulli, a contractor who has lived in Scarborough for 26 years, also said that his criticism of the Wentworth Intermediate School replacement plan – which passed by a landslide and drove many voters to the polls this year – probably hurt his chances of winning election. Still, Andriulli said he’d run again, and would be better suited now that he’s got one campaign under his belt. “What can you say?” he asked. “It’s not a popularity contest. You learn a little bit.” Corthell already had one council election behind her before Tuesday’s vote. Last year, she came in third in a three-way race against

Councilors Michael Wood and Judith Roy. Corthell said she was disappointed by losing to Ronald Ahlquist, but that the councilor’s deep connections to Scarborough worked against her. Corthell has lived in Scarborough just three years, while Ahlquist is a fourth-generation resident. “Ron and his family have been here for years and years,” Corthell said. “And a lot of people don’t follow these local elections.” She said it was too soon to say whether she’d run again, but that she enjoys working on the Planning Board and is happy to be able to continue with that body. “It’s not like (being on Town Council) was the only thing I was interested in doing,” Corthell said. Because the two incumbents running in the four-way race won, James Benedict, a 63-year-old retired contractor who lost bids for the council the last two years, claimed victory only against Andriulli, and by a thin margin: 79 votes. He said that running a few times before helped him gain support each successive year. This time, it just worked. “The first year I ran, I got only 600 votes,” Benedict said Wednesday. “The second time, it was 1,500. This time around, I got

Christine Massengill and Kelly Noonan Murphy, members of the Wentworth Building Committee, won uncontested seats on the School Board with 5,305 votes and 5,658 votes, respectively. 3,600. I’ve got to be doing something right.” When the election results were announced, Corthell said she was shocked Benedict beat Andriulli because she hadn’t seen him much on the campaign trail. But Benedict said he campaigned his own way. He said he visited business people, and talked with people he knew personally or from his years in the construction business. “My campaign was personal in nature,” he said. “I left a good taste about my ability to perform.” In his campaigns, Benedict has been a

rium on construction that ultimately forced the developers to a different neighborhood. The land uses proposed by the committee include rules for “Neighborhood Activity Centers,” which include village centers like Willard Square, as well as “Community Commercial Hubs” and “Neighborhood Centers” throughout the city. Each designation has its own rules about zoning, density, land use, setbacks and parking. “There are specific policies for specific areas,” Haeuser said. “People should be interested in that.” Last year, the committee invited residents to a forum at Southern Maine Community College to craft a vision that would guide the rest of the Comp Plan revisions. That vision describes how the city hopes to see itself in 2035. It describes South Portland as a “desirable destination” full

of livable, walkable urban neighborhoods. It stresses education, open space, diversity and a strong economic base that includes the city’s historic waterfront. Haeuser said the land use forum is the middle stage of Comp Plan revision, and that input from residents there will influence policies drafted later on transportation, the environment and other topics. “Everything else is affected by our policies on land use,” Haeuser said. Aside from the Neighborhood Activity Centers, the forum also will include talks on the future land use needs of Knightville/ Mill Creek, the East End waterfront, singlefamily neighborhoods, the Maine Mall area and the Broadway, Cottage Road and Main Street corridors. The city is asking residents interested in attending to forum the RSVP to Haeuser at chaeuser@southportland.org. Mario Moretto can be contacted at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net.

from the previous plan. M c G ove r n s a i d t h e p r o p o s e d cost has been reduced by about $1 million, bringing the estimate to about $8 million to $8.5 million. The new design also creates more green space around the building, provides connections with the schools and has 50 parking spots. McGovern said the entrance to the library is a split-level design, so people can go up to the adult, young adult and children’s areas, or downstairs to the Historical Society and meeting space. “We really want to be sure this entryway is very welcoming, well designed and well appointed, so that you’re not going into a wasteland,” he said. “We want it to be something that is nice and welcoming, that says you are in a library.” All the key library functions would be on the upper level, with a coffee bar, circulation desk and reading areas, McGovern said. The lower level is where Friends of the Library can store books, and there is mechanical space, a kitchen, rest rooms and conference rooms.

They replace Chairman Chris Brownsey and board member Colleen Staszko. Uncontested incumbents Jason Greenleaf (5,510 votes), Charles Andreson (5,327) and Robert McSorely (5,102) were re-elected to the board of the Scarborough Sanitary District. — Mario Moretto

critic of the Town Council. This year, he was especially vocal about his view that the residents of Higgins Beach should have received a deal more to their liking with regard to parking in their neighborhood. Benedict said he doesn’t think that he’ll have a problem working on the council, however, despite how critical he may have been. “I just think that criticism is part of the job,” he said. “I’m not here to stir the pot. I’m here to benefit the whole town.” Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net. Follow him on Twitter: @riocarmine.

The basement under the Pond Cove annex will be renovated, McGovern said, but to what degree the upstairs will be upgraded is more of a budget issue. “We’ve really tried, in working with the architects, to get a lot of input over the last few months from a lot of different folks, and every time we look at it the staff thinks they are getting closer and closer to getting it right,” he said. McGovern said the cost estimate is for on-site expenses, and does not include fundraising or library services during the time the library will have to close for construction. He said construction is not expected to begin for at least three years. A feasibility group will report to the council in a few months with an estimate of how much money can be raised. Councilor Jessica Sullivan said the new design concept has been reviewed and accepted by the Library Foundation, the library board of trustees and the library study oversight committee. Councilors are expected to visit libraries in Freeport, York and Portsmouth to continue their research in January. Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or aanderson@theforecaster.net.

Jamieson

Comment on this story at: http://www.theforecaster.net/weblink/105748

from page 3 approved the county’s first-ever Charter, which dictates the way the county is organized and governed. They also increased the number of districts, and thus the number of elected county commissioners, from three to five. In March, the county map was redrawn to accommodate the two new districts, with no existing district keeping its former boundaries. The new District 1 includes Scarborough, Baldwin, Bridgton, Gorham, Harrison, Sebago and Standish. Jamieson, a trial lawyer, won easily in Scarborough, Standish and Gorham – the three largest towns in the district. All three also approved the $33 million Cumberland County Civic Center renovation bond, which Jamieson supported but both his opponents opposed. The bond passed overwhelmingly on

Tuesday night. He said his campaign strategy all along was to win in those towns. “We worked hard and focused on those three towns, so we weren’t really surprised that’s the way the race tilted,” he said. Jamieson was an elected member of the Cumberland County Charter Commission, former chairman of the Scarborough Democratic Committee, former member of the Maine Bar Association Board of Governors and former president of the Bates College Alumni Association. Despite placing second overall, Rosenblatt failed to win in any municipality. She said she was counting on the votes of conservatives in the district’s smaller towns, but those votes went to the more

Southern

well-known local candidate Lisa Villa, who also opposed the bond. Rosenblatt congratulated Jamieson, who she said ran a strong, smart campaign. But said she had expected to fare better. “I was surprised at the overwhelming support for the Civic Center,” she said. “Looking at the numbers, that appears to have played a big role in this race.” Rosenblatt has served on the Scarborough School Board and the Chamber of Commerce, and is the chairwoman of the Scarborough Republican Committee. She said it’s too soon to know what’s next for her, but that this wouldn’t mark the end of her civil service. “I don’t see my dedication being impacted by this at all,” she said.

fred Street. The circulation desk clerk for the South Portland Public Library said she hopes to get more residents involved in the school system, whether they have children in the system or not. Jeffrey Selser, 40, of Summit Street, won his first term on the School Board, but is no newcomer to South Portland schools. Selser, an attorney with Verrill Dana in Portland, was spokesman for the PAC that advocated the successful push for a $41 million bond last year to renovate the high school. He said he’d like to rework the budget process to get more early, public participation. Mario Moretto can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 106 or mmoretto@theforecaster.net.
