CMP: Opposition to new meters ‘clearly unreasonable’

State champs

By Emily Parkhurst AUGUSTA — Central Maine Power Co. has asked the Maine Public Utilities Commission to dismiss one of two complaints filed in October by residents concerned about the safety of “smart” electric meters being installed on every CMP customer’s home or business. The complaint, filed Oct. 26 by Averyl Hill of Scarborough and signed by 11 CMP customers, asked the PUC to investigate alleged fire safety hazards associated with installations of the new meters on homes with old wiring. It also questioned the level of training provided to employees of the company CMP has hired to do the work.

S. Portland leaders take on city-school dynamic By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The City Council and School Board on Monday caucused to choose their respective leaders. The School Board voted unanimously to elect Ralph Baxter as the 2011 chairman, and the Council voted 4-3 to elect Rosemarie De Angelis as

the city’s mayor. Both panels will take their formal votes during the inauguration ceremony scheduled for Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall. Over the next year, both leaders will attempt to improve the relationship between the panels. The issue has been raised in

several public forums and was widely reported by council candidates during their campaigns. Although both panels are elected by residents, some complain that councilors have a history of viewing the School Board members as their suborSee page 17

“Because I had a new breaker box and wiring leading up to the meter installed by a licensed electrician last year and inspected by the town I believe I am OK,” Hill said. “But it got me thinking about the fact that there are many aging homes in southern Maine with older wiring, so it could affect a lot of people and be an unexpected expense for homeowners.” CMP’s response, submitted Nov. 4, called the complaint “clearly unreasonable” and without merit because it was “inconsistent with applicable statues, rules and tariffs.” The response argues that “the See page 33

Cape Elizabeth joins towns urging CMP to delay ‘smart’ meters By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — The Town Council on Monday unanimously passed a resolution urging Central Maine Power Co. to delay installation of “smart” electric meters or related wireless equipment for at least 90 days. The resolution, which would give residents time to get additional information about the meters,

also encourages the Maine Public Utilities Commission to provide an opportunity for residents to speak for or against smart meters before they are installed in town. While the resolution is nonbinding and merely an expression of opinion or intention, councilors also added language See page 26

Bagel Guy makes deliveries his business

By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — In a society that values service and convenience, Dennis Yesse can’t believe someone didn’t think of it sooner. Restaurants deliver lunch and dinner. Why not breakfast?

That’s exactly what Yesse, better known to his customers as the Bagel Guy, does. He delivers freshly cooked bagels to households and cafes in Portland, South Portland and Cape Elizabeth. The cost, including delivery? A dollar per bagel and a minimum of six bagels. The variety? Whatever you want. Yesse’s day starts at 3:45 a.m.

Dennis Yesse, also known as the Bagel Guy, in his South Portland bakery on Monday morning, rolls fresh dough for bagels to be delivered Tuesday morning.

Before making his coffee, he makes his way into his Clinton Street garage, which has been converted into a modest bakery, and turns on the oven. Once pre-heated, he boils and bakes the bagels, which have been rolled out the day before and allowed to settle overnight. At roughly 5:30 a.m., the bagels are cooked, and Yesse sets See page 17

South Portland official takes job in LePage administration

Resources Director John McGough resigned from his city post late last week to become LePage’s chief of staff. McGough took a personal leave of absence from his city job in August to work on LePage’s campaign.

By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — Paul LePage’s gubernatorial win last week left a vacancy in the city’s human resources department. City Manager Jim Gailey said Human

McGough was there through the campaign’s highs and lows – whether it was ushering an angry LePage away from reporters questioning his property tax exemptions in Maine and Florida, or LePage’s victory speech on Nov. 3. “John was a huge asset for the city and we will surely miss him,” Gailey said. “We wish him luck in his new endeavor with the state of Maine.” McGough was the assistant city manager and human resource director for the city of Waterville from 2000 to 2004, while LePage was Waterville’s mayor. For two years prior to that, McGough was the Republican chief of staff for the State House. While McGough received no pay or benefits during his leave, questions were raised when McGough took his leave of absence from the city. Councilor Rosemarie De Angelis said she followed up on calls from constituents about whether the leave was in line with the city’s personnel policy. That policy states that personal leave may be granted “when it appears, because of the past record of the employee or because of the purpose for which the leave is requested, that the best interests of the city will be served.” Gailey said McGough, who joined the city in 2006, was prepared to resign to work on the campaign, but stayed on at his request until after the election. That way if LePage lost, the city would still have an HR director, he said. McGough’s leave complied with the

policy, Gailey said, because it was in the city’s best interest to have continuity in the city department. “John came on board in 2006 and was instantly confronted with a mountain of work as a result of a department that previously saw a revolving door for HR directors,” Gailey said. “The office is on solid ground today due to the continued efforts of John.” De Angelis, however, believes the issue of what “the best interest of the city” means should be clarified. “I think it would behoove the city to clarify what we mean by the best interest of the city,” the incoming mayor said. Labor attorney Elizabeth Boynton has been filling in since McGough’s leave. Gailey said Boynton is under contract to work 20 hours a week for the city and keep regular office hours. That schedule has been enough to cover the city’s needs, Gailey said, because many of the significant union negotiations were wrapped up prior to McGough’s leave. Gailey said the city is currently seeking applications for a new HR director through Nov. 30. “South Portland is a very dynamic place to work,” he said. “I believe individuals who explore the job opportunity will see this rather quickly and the city will receive some great candidates for consideration.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

Wentworth School determined safe for now By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — Students and staff who spend their days in Wentworth Intermediate School took a deep breath, and had a collective sigh of relief last week after tests for mold came back at safe levels. The tests come on the heels of high levels of mold in the aging school building’s utility tunnels, which were thorough cleaned, ventilated and retested over the past month. “Air samples indicated very low levels of mold spore activity in the tested trench areas,” a report produced by Northeast Test

Consultants for the school on Oct. 26 read. NTC also tested the classrooms with tunnel access hatches with the same result. The report stated that the mold found was the same mold found outdoors, and not the dangerous Aspergillis mold associated with allergic reactions and other breathing issues, which had been present in earlier testing. “We are going to test a few more carpet samples for mold,” Director of Buildings, Grounds and Maintenance Todd Jepson said.

Jepson added that during the recent bout of rainstorms, both the tunnels and the classrooms remained dry. “Drier than the high school, actually,” he said. The school has put an industrial-size dehumidifier in the tunnels to keep them as dry as possible and Jepson said each time NTC personnel are on the premises, he has them check the tunnels for water. Jepson said in the future he’d like for the entire school system to be tested regularly for mold, something he is aware is happen-


ing in other districts. “For not too much money, we could have all the schools tested regularly,” he said. Additionally, the school has begun the process of replacing 28 windows in classrooms affected by asbestos, which was found in the glazing of the old windows this summer. Since then, all the windows have been ordered closed to stop asbestos from entering the classrooms. “We have one window removed,” Jepson said. “It’s currently boarded up. We’re continued page 35

S. Portland charts new course to pick School Board appointee By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The School Board is undertaking a more open, transparent process for recommending an interim appointment to the District 5 seat to serve until the November 2011 election. The new process comes one year after an appointment to a vacant District 3 School Board seat drew criticism because of the superintendent’s involvement. The School Board must recommend to the City Council a candidate to replace Alan Livingston, the current District 5 representative who was elected to the City Council in November. “Because of the – in my opinion – incorrect perception of how it was done last year, we’re going to make it a point to do it as a hearing,” said Ralph Baxter, the incoming

Study suggests turnpike spur, rail link for Scarborough, S.P. By Emily Parkhurst GORHAM — An east-west highway bypass, commuter rail line and road widening are proposed to help deal with traffic problems in Scarborough, South Portland, Westbrook and Gorham. The Gorham East-West Study results were presented at a series of meetings over the past three weeks, explaining several ways to alleviate traffic congestion that has increased as the population in the area has grown. “Our study shows there’s a lot of growth coming,” study spokeswoman Carol Morris

Comment on this story at:

said. The process began in 2007 when all four towns signed a resolution asking for a study, specifically to address a possible turnpike spur to connect to the newly completed Gorham bypass. The study projected out to 2035, predicting 79 percent growth in housing and at least 250 new roads in Scarborough. The study cited previous growth, as well as the

cost of land in the area, cheap fuel, Mainers’ historical preference for rural living and current land use regulations as the reasons for the dramatic increase. Morris explained that the study found that widening Route 114 between Gorham and Scarborough would have the same effect as building a highway bypass. “The turnpike spur would have more environmental impact,” she said. “The widening of (Route) 114 would have more human impact.” Widening Route 114 to four lanes would

affect landowners along the road and particularly any homes close to the road. The study also suggests towns consider changing their zoning to encourage mixeduse development, which would create jobs close to homes and potentially reduce the number of commuters. “Most of these towns are already doing this,” Morris said, “but we’ve never come out and said, if you do this, you’ll see a major transportation benefit.” The Gorham East-West Study will now move toward developing more specific recommendations, such as choosing areas for public transportation infrastructure and stops, and a route for the highway bypass. The study personnel will also be asking towns to sign a memo of understanding to recognize the information and recommendations presented. “That’s a big, public piece,” Morris said. “Right now we’re trying to make this all as understandable for people as possible.” Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or

Residents ask town for $245K to fix private road

By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — The residents of Cranberry Pines Road are hoping to end at least 30 years of debate over what to do about the private road. The 13 homeowners have asked the town to loan them $210,000 to repair the road, an amount that will be split up and paid back to the town with interest over 15 years. Additionally, the residents have asked the town to pay off a Small Business Association loan of approximately $34,000 that the association took out in 1996 to repair flood damage, in exchange for easement rights to town-owned property nearby. “This is strange set of circumstances,” Town Manager Tom Hall said, “but I’m glad we came up with an agreement that did not relax the road acceptance policy. We didn’t want to set a precedence that would come back and haunt us.” The dead-end private road off Broadturn Road was built in the late 1970s by developer Terry Brown Construction. The developer went bankrupt while the road was under construction and never completed the project, leaving the residents with a poorly built gravel road. The homeowners have consistently paid to maintain the road, paving it and installing a guardrail at the town’s request, and have entered into yearly contracts with the town for winter plowing. “They don’t get any break on their taxes, but they’re not enjoying the same level of services as other taxpayers in town,” Hall said. This new agreement would convert the road to a public way and turn over maintenance and plowing responsibilities permanently to the town. “This is really a step in the direction the town’s policy should be going,” Hall said. “We want to convert private ways to public streets. We’re so pleased we were able to deliver an agreement that does not relax our standards.” The Council will vote on the matter at its Nov. 17 meeting.

The new three-year contract, which takes effect July 1, 2011, was not immediately available, because it was still being drafted. But board member and incoming Chairman Ralph Baxter said the new contract gives the superintendent a 3-percent raise, increasing her salary to $115,360 from $112,000.

The increase was approved to bring Godin in line with other administrators, he said. “That’s what all the administrators have,” he said. “She was lower than that.” The board also increased Godin’s annuity by $2,500, from $5,000 year to $7,500, Baxter said.

First Maine pesticide summit aims to answer questions By Stephanie Grinnell BRUNSWICK — With several Maine towns already discussing banning pesticides and a few with ordinances in place, the Maine Pesticide Summit on Nov. 20 will mark the first time there has been a gathering to discuss their use in the state. The summit at the Unitarian Universalist Church Nov. 20 will feature Paul Tukey, who has spent years speaking about the hazards of pesticide application and encouraging use of organic alternatives. “What makes my presentation effective is I understand these products and what they do,” Tukey said. Scarborough town councilors addressed the issue last week. “The hearing in Scarborough (Nov. 1) was one of the most highly attended. Threequarters of the people were concerned,” Tukey said, adding most lawn care professionals feel because pesticides are approved for use by the Environmental Protection Agency, they should be able to use them. “I used to be one of them and I applied this stuff and made myself sick. That’s what gave me my initial motivation.” Tukey calls pesticides “poison” and said

the hazards are well known. He said children, at the very least, should be protected. He said some studies have linked pesticide exposure to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism in children. “At a minimum, let’s protect kids. There’s no reason to use (pesticides),” Tukey said, “because you’re worried about a few dandelions.” Concerns about ridding school properties of flowering weeds come from parents of children allergic to bees, he said, adding there are “other steps you can take.” Pesticides can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin and eyes, Tukey said. When pesticides are used, less than 1 percent of the active ingredient goes to the target; the rest ends up in ground and surface water. Tukey said the goal of the summit is to gather activists, town officials and citizens for networking and sharing information. “I think what we really want to do is frame the issues for people and ultimately make it statewide,” he said. Several communities already have ordinances in place, including Brunswick, Ogunquit, Castine, Rockport and Camden,

Tukey said, while others are in discussions to create ordinances regarding pesticide use. “Cumberland and Falmouth are in the conversation and they are sending people to the summit,” he said. Falmouth resident Barbara DiBiase said as a private land owner, she tries not to use chemical treatments when possible, opting instead for organic alternatives. She said as a master gardener, she has used pesticides in the past but has since “tried to learn ways to manage yards without using chemicals.” DiBiase said Falmouth schools use a corn gluten fertilizer, but she said it’s her understanding it will take up to three years for all the chemicals already in the ground to break

down and the schools to see a change. “Nothing is really going to give us a perfect green golf course lawn without chemicals,” DiBiase said. “I personally am not supportive of banning all pesticide use.” She said some chemicals are needed to maintain crop levels so food crops such as apples are not destroyed by pests. However, she added she is very concerned about run-off into bodies of water. DiBiase said she anticipates a change in what products are available in stores if enough people are educated about pesticides. “I’d like to see us become more educated,” DiBiase said. “I’m not looking to continued page 22

In time for the holidays, Cape tree farm opens for business By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — After watching his balsam fir trees grow for seven years, Jay Cox has finally opened the Old Farm Christmas Place on Sawyer Road and will sell trees and holiday items through December. The Old Farm Christmas Place opened to the public on Saturday, Nov. 6 and customers will be able to choose their holiday trees on Saturday, Nov. 13. Cox said he moved back to Maine in 2001 and started planting trees on his land a few years later. Since then, he has planted about 2,500 trees per year. There will be about 1,000 trees to select this year. They start at six feet tall and cost either $45 or $55. “Next year there will be about 2,500 trees for sale,” Cox said. “This is the first planting.”

In addition to the tree farm, Cox built a timber framed barn and will sell custom wreaths, garland, ornaments, yarn, soaps, candles and other holiday decorations. As a member of the Cape Farm Alliance, Cox said he worked with the Planning Board, Ordinance Committee and local farmers to make zoning ordinance changes that would support local agriculture by allowing the sale of ancillary goods in farm stores. The Town Council approved the agricultural changes in May, making it possible for Cox to sell holiday items in conjunction with his trees. “These changes make it possible for farmers to make money during off seasons,” he said. “This keeps farmers going.” Changes to the agricultural portion of the zoning ordinance include updates to the town agricultural profile, more flexibility

in farming regulations, agriculture-related products and uses, and the ability to incorporate non-farm items and non-local items into farm markets. There is a new agricultural definition that includes riding stables and allows farmers to be more creative in their use of agriculture for revenue. Changes that are helpful to Cox’s business allow up to 50 percent of items sold at a market to be non-farm related, up from 25 percent. In addition, items can be sold at farm markets from any farm in Cape Elizabeth, not just from the owner’s farm. The Old Farm Christmas Place and Old Farm Store will be open through December and will offer wagon rides, hot cider and other refreshments. Directions and operating hours for both the store and tree farm can be found at or 799-0096.

Cape Council approves neighborhood skating rink

By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — The Town Council unanimously approved the use of town-owned property on Columbus Road near the intersection of Mitchell Road for a hockey rink in the winter. The request came from young Cape Elizabeth resident Ethan Gillespie of Columbus Road. He wrote a letter on Oct. 19 and delivered it to the neighborhood explaining his plan, with the help of his father Chris Gillepsie, to build a skating rink. The rink will be constructed in Decem-

ber about 8 feet from the road. There will be an area for people to change in to their skates about 15 feet from the road and stakes will be used to support the wooden structure. Chris Gillepsie said the rink will be removed when the snow melts. The proposal to build the 24-by-48-foot rink received the support of many neighbors who attended the meeting. Residents of the Columbus, Thrasher, Killdeer and Ann Arbor neighborhoods spoke in favor of the proposal. Michael Hunter of 67 Columbus Road

said technology, computers and gaming dictate so much of children’s lives that the rink is a healthy alternative. “This is good exercise and I am 100 percent for it,” he said. Since the land is on public property the rink will be available to neighbors, guests and children in Cape Elizabeth. Eric Olsen of 31 Killdeer Road said the rink was a wonderful idea and a learning opportunity for Ethan. “I applaud him for not doing what a lot of kids would do at his age, and that is it is

easier to ask forgiveness than permission,” he said. “We are here now to support him.” The rink will be open between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. Council chairwoman Anne Swift-Kayatta said the project shows good initiative and she too applauds Ethan for his hard work. “It is great that the neighborhood can work together on this,” she said.

By Kate Bucklin PORTLAND — The Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System has announced more than $20 million in funding for road, path and bus projects in greater Portland. The funding is made up of local, state and federal contributions and was decided after PACTS undertook a regional analysis of the needs of the 15 municipalities and seven public transit systems in the area.

In Portland, funding was authorized for several paving projects including about $1.1 million for paving along the Eastern Promenade and almost $800,000 to pave Capisic Street. The money for the paving projects will be available in the next few months. On Park Avenue, $260,000 will be allocated to improve bike lanes and pedestrian ways. Nearly $200,000 was set aside for a pedestrian connection at the Interstate 295 Exit 7 ramp from Marginal Way to the Back

person, there will be a formal interview process that will include the City Council. The board may interview candidates in a public session, since the School Board is made up elected officials, who are not protected by typical employee confidentiality laws. “Unfortunately, there is no formal procedure,” said Baxter, who asked the council to establish one. “So we’re going to do it this way. Make it a board meeting and a board discussion, so it’s all public so everyone can see it.”

Cove trail. Both those projects are scheduled to happen between October 2011 and September 2013. About $112,000 is earmarked for an electronic ticket program at Casco Bay Lines. In Scarborough, $3 million will go toward construction of the intersection at Dunston Corner. That funding will become available between October 2011 and September 2013. Funding for connecting the Eastern trail in South Portland to Scarborough is also earmarked for that time. South Portland is also slated to get about

$203,000 for a Mill Creek transit hub and nearly $240,000 for a transit maintenance building. In Cape Elizabeth, more than $40,000 in funding will be allocated for a project yet to be determined, but possibly for the Shore Road pathway. That funding will be available in the coming months. Falmouth is getting more than $30,000 for paving Route 1. About $766,000 is going toward paving of Route 1 in Freeport. In Cumberland, more than $400,000 was authorized for paving and sidewalk construction along Tuttle Road.

Roy aims for innovation on council I would like to take this opportunity to thank the voters of Scarborough who took the time to vote and in that process voted to allow me to serve the community for another three years. I enjoy giving back to the community in which I have lived for 58 years. Scarborough is a great community, growing sometimes too fast, however, it meets these challenges in a positive manner most of the time. The upcoming year will be no easier than the last especially in regards to the budget. We need to work together to make sure we provide the things the citizens need and at the same time hold the line on the budget. This will not be easy, however, if together we can “think outside the box” we can come up with some innovative ways to make it work for all. I stand by my motto to “Do the Best for the Most with the Least” and with your help can hold true to that stance. Town Councilor Judy Roy Scarborough

Bliss appreciates support I write to thank all the voters in South Portland, Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough for your willingness to participate in the election last week. These elections are the very foundation of our representative democracy, and it is important to take the time to vote for those who will make decisions in Augusta for the next two years. If you voted for me, I thank you, and promise that I will work hard as your state senator. I will try to keep you informed of the issues as they arise, and the reasons for my votes. And I encourage you to contact me with your comments and your concerns. If you voted for my opponent, I promise you that I will work hard to earn your trust. I want to hear from you, too. Tell me about the issues that concern you. Tell me what you think we should be doing in Augusta. And I want to thank you all for sending Reps. Eberle, Dill, Morrison and Kaenrath back for another term to serve with me. They are outstanding legislators, and together they are a great team with which to work. State Sen. Larry Bliss South Portland

Thanks for supporting Question 3 I write on behalf of the Friends of Scarborough Marsh to give many thanks to voters who supported Question 3 during the recent election. Question 3 endorsed a $9.75 million bond issue that includes critical funding for the highly successful Land for Maine’s Future program. LMF works to permanently protect lands that have exceptional recreational or ecological value along with working lands for farms, forests, tourism, and working

Intentionally out of touch Despite the many ways we are all connected in this wired world of cell phones, e-mail, text messaging, Facebook and Twitter, we are also increasingly out of touch. Or, more to the point, we are only in touch with the privileged few and out of touch with reality.

The Universal As a journalist, I constantly find myself trying to figure out how to contact people the newspapers and magazines I write for want me to interview. When I first started writing for publications in the 1960s, it was a fairly simple matter of looking someone up in the phone book. Everyone had a telephone Edgar Allen Beem and it was rare (and somehow suspect) when someone had an unlisted number.


Now, as people increasingly abandon land lines for cell phones, and there are no cell phone (or e-mail) directories, I often have to resort to tracking people down through their friends and known associates. If I’m lucky, the go-between will forward my message and I’ll eventually hear back from the person. On the one hand, the new age of non-disclosure probably protects our privacy, but it also insulates us from the outside world. I’m all in favor of do-not-call lists in order avoid the annoyance of telemarketers, but there is an aspect of a shared public life that gets sacrificed when no one can contact you except people to whom you have given your cell phone number or e-mail address. If you wonder why some polls showed candidates

waterfronts. This award-winning program enjoys a broad coalition of support and has protected more than 500,000 acres of wildlife habitat, farmland and unique natural places throughout Maine. These include local spots like Broadturn Farm in Scarborough and Robinson Woods in Cape Elizabeth. These goals can only be achieved with your support.

much closer than the results turned out to be, it may simply be that pollsters can only reach old farts with land-line phones. When I worked at Portland Public Library in the 1970s, we constantly used city directories to research and find people. You could find out who lived where and even what they did for a living. Now such listings would probably be regarded by many people as an invasion of privacy. What is it, I wonder, that we are afraid of? Why are we hiding in plain sight? I like to think I make it easy for people to contact me. I’m in the phone book, I have an answering machine, my name and picture are on my column, and I don’t mind if the paper gives out my e-mail address. I do not, however, tweet or text and I rarely give out my cell phone number, preferring that only my family call me when I’m not at home. (Can you hear me now? I don’t get cell phone reception at home.) In an odd way, the access that everyone now has to communications technology, incessantly tweeting, texting, and chatting wherever and whenever, may actually be contributing to a collective bunker mentality if we are only in touch with the likeminded. In the recent election, we saw a new level of noncommunication as many conservative candidates adopted the strategy of refusing to talk to the news media, or only to friendly news media, and in some cases even ducking out of public debates. I guess it’s a lot easier to remain confident in your own fixed ideas if you don’t have to answer for them. I just hope we haven’t elected a bunch of people in this country who are so out of touch that they can’t thoughtfully consider an alternative point of view.

Question 3 won overwhelmingly on Nov. 2 with almost 60 percent of the vote. The Friends of Scarborough Marsh thank you, and will continue to work with LMF and many others to protect and restore our natural resources. Katie Fellows Scarborough

FitforME! awarded grant to fight childhood obesity YARMOUTH — FitforME!, an innovative program designed by Bayview Pediatrics and Riverview Physical Therapy in Yarmouth to treat childhood and adolescent obesity, recently received a $1,200 grant from the Physician Assistant Foundation. Participation in the FitforME! program is initiated by a referral from a child’s pediatrician. An individualized treatment plan, which includes a nutritional, educational and physical fitness component, is designed by a physician or physician assistant from Bayview Pediatrics and a physical therapist and athletic trainer from Riverview Physical Therapy. “The advantages to our program are the collaborative approach and direct line of communication with the child’s pediatrician,” said Matt Douglas, clinic director at Riverview Physical Therapy. “Also, we perform a complete orthopedic assessment, including screenings for joint mobility, flexibilty, and strength to assess the child’s physical condition and ensure safety,” he added. Twelve children so far have completed the FitforME! program, which lasts approximately six to 12 weeks, and includes up to three visits per week. The cost to participate in the program is the same as a regular physical therapy visit, reimbursable through insurance. FitforME! is one of the first programs in Maine to receive a grant for this type of work. A portion of the grant will be used to purchase equipment for kids in the program. “One of our goals is to make this fun for the kids and not feel like a structured exercise regime,” said Douglas. “We’ve gotten positive feedback from parents and children who have gone through the program.” The grant will also be used to help with insurance co-pay assistance when needed. Currently, FitforME! is accepting referrals for the program. For more information, please contact Matt Douglas/Riverview Physical Therapy at 846-8725.

Perfect Storm win first Class A crown! (Ed. Note: For the complete version of this story, with additional photos, please visit By Michael Hoffer FALMOUTH — From the ashes of the agony of previous playoff heartbreaks, a perfect Storm was born. The 2010 Scarborough girls’ soccer team set a standard to which all future Red Storm squads will aspire. If it wasn’t enough that Scarborough erased the stain of recent playoff heartbreaks by winning a Class A state championship for the first time Saturday afternoon at Falmouth High School, the manner in which the Red Storm accomplished the feat ensured their immortality. Scarborough came out and took it to previously unbeaten Bangor from the get-go, scored twice in the first half, added a goal in the second and since it couldn’t have ended any other way, completed its ascendance by shutting out the Rams, 3-0, completing its 18-game season without surrendering a single goal during normal play.

Senior Emma Bagley’s goal (off classmate Sarah Little’s corner kick) midway through the first half put the Red Storm ahead to stay. Senior Cortney Hughes added a goal just before halftime and for good measure, Little scored herself just over six minutes into the second half and Scarborough cruised to an

easier-than-anticipated state game triumph. “We came out today and played with a lot of passion,” said Red Storm coach Mike Farley, who’s produced strong team after strong team in his six seasons and got to taste a title for the first time. “Bangor’s a well coached team and we really

turned it to a different level. The first half is something I haven’t seen before. We came out and played really well and it was awesome.”

Dream season Scarborough has been plagued in recent years by disappointing playoff exits after solid regular seasons, but this fall, it ex-

celled from the get-go, not only winning all 14 regular season contests, but doing so in amazing fashion, by not giving up a single goal. The Red Storm earned the top seed for the playoffs and earned a huge dose of confidence with a 2-0 win over No. 8 Cape

Scarborough football falls just short (Ed. Note: For the full version of this story, with additional photos, please visit By Michael Hoffer PORTLAND — Scarborough’s season of football rebirth almost produced a big upset Saturday afternoon, but ultimately just ended in heartache. Playing at undefeated, top-ranked Cheverus, the fifth-seeded Red Storm hung tough from start to finish and had chances to advance, but ultimately fell a touchdown shy and lost, 21-14, as their best Class A season by a mile ended at 8-2. The Stags didn’t take the lead for good until 7:38 remained when senior workhorse Evan Jendrasko bulled in for a 2-yard touchdown run. Cheverus came up with a defensive stop, then ran out the final 5 minutes, 6 seconds to hold on and improve to 10-0, setting up a Western A Final against city rival Deering Saturday. “The kids played hard and gave it everything they had,” said Scarborough’s first year coach Lance Johnson. “They did everything we asked them to do. We just came up a little bit short.”

Compelling duel Scarborough was nowhere near the postseason in 2009. In fact, the Red Storm had to rally to beat Kennebunk in

the finale just to finish 1-7. In the offseason, Scarborough brought in Johnson, a highly-respected, longtime assistant at Portland High, to lead the program and it’s paid immediate and seismic dividends as the Red Storm reversed last year’s mark, going 7-1, earning the No. 5 seed for the Western A playoffs, then rolling, 48-14, at No. 4 Biddeford last Saturday, setting the tone with a kickoff return for a score to start the game. Cheverus, meanwhile, has stolen headlines all season, winning all eight regular season contests before rallying to beat No. 8 Windham, the defending state champion, 34-27, in the quarterfinals. The Stags and Red Storm hadn’t met since the 2004 season and split the two prior encounters. They had no playoff history. Saturday, Scarborough had its chances, but ultimately, Cheverus moved on. The Red Storm got the ball first and picked up a first down on an 11-yard pass from senior Jack Adams to classmate Kyle Kelley, but soon punted and the hosts took over at their 17. Nine plays and 3 minutes, 39 seconds later, Cheverus had the lead when junior Spencer Cooke scored on a 6-yard run. Junior Louie DiStasio added the pointafter and the Stags were ahead, 7-0, with

4:42 to play in the opening quarter. The Red Storm went three-and-out and were forced to punt on their next series, but junior Matt Brown was roughed and the visitors retained possession. They would meticulously march down the field and as the first period gave way to the second, were in Cheverus territory. Senior quarterback Jack Adams’ passes of 12 yards to junior Scott Thibeault and seven to senior Joe Viola set the stage for a 16-yard Thibeault TD run down the left sideline on the 17th play of a

nearly seven-minute drive. Senior Nathan Provencher added the extra point and the game was tied, 7-7, with 9:36 to go in the first half. After a Cheverus punt, Scarborough moved again, but on fourth-and-2 from the Stags’ 41, with Mike Cyr in behind center, the senior was thrown for a threeyard loss after a bad snap. “In the first half, we worked on some new things,” said Johnson. “We thought we had something, but it didn’t work out. continued page 19

Cape’s reign ends with semifinal loss By Eric Carson WELLS — Someone showed up in Wells dressed as the Cape Elizabeth foot-

ball team for the Western Class B semifinal game on Friday night. The problem was they didn’t play like them.

One season removed from a regional title and a trip to the state final, thirdranked Cape Elizabeth watched the 2010 season vanish in a haze of blue smoke as the second-ranked Warriors ran free and easy to a 47-7 victory at Memorial Field. Facing 4th-and-inches at the 31 on the first series of the game, Cape Elizabeth (64) elected to go for it to the surprise really of no one. Coach Aaron Filieo established long ago the Capers prefer to be the aggressor and needing about three inches after picking up 18 yards on five carries it was a gamble, but a good one. Struggling with his footing from the start, Cape Elizabeth senior running back Jack Barber still appeared to have got at least what he needed. But the official left his spot perhaps a bit early, dodged a few players and put the ball back right where it was. Inches shy of a first down. Wells (10-1) punched it in on three running plays for a 7-0 lead two minutes into the game and never looked back. Senior J.T. Sherburne went in untouched from 13-yards out and the Warriors piled on three more touchdowns to take a 28-0 halftime lead. “We have the best offensive lineman in the state,” said Filieo, in reference to junior Andrew Lavallee. “We have a good athletic fullback. We need to be able to get that yard. In my mind I was thinking of the risk/reward and it probably wasn’t there. For us, it’s another first down. At the

same time I didn’t expect us to turn around and give up the touchdown. I had confidence in our defense. But I felt that even down 7-0, OK. We’ve been here before.” Playing without injured senior Derek Roberts, the Capers turned to senior Adam Danielson to run the offense again for the third time this season. Late in the first quarter, the Warriors sacked Danielson from behind as he was set to throw and recovered the fumble at the Cape Elizabeth 10-yard line. Three plays later, Wells senior quarterback Paul McDonough rolled to his right and threw high back across the field to the end zone for junior Josh Ingalls in single coverage. Ingalls went up and pulled down McDonough’s high heat for a 14-0 lead for the Warriors with 1:43 left in the first quarter. “We didn’t show up to play,” said Danielson. “It’s tough out there when a couple of guys don’t show up. It’s hard to explain. I love being out here. I’m going to miss it. Being a captain you always want to try and make things positive. We had a lot of injuries this year but we had great effort. I’m happy with the effort.” After playing a major role in Wells 14-7 regular season home win over the Capers on Oct. 8, McDonough exerted very little effort in the semifinal meeting. He threw only two passes all game and never had a rushing attempt. Normally the sign of continued next page


You’re Never Too Smart to Get Conned By John Gannon, President of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation Smart people get conned too. Just ask Sarasota, Fla. tax attorney John McKenney. A lawyer for more than 20 years, he represents clients in front of the IRS and prepares tax returns for local businesses. He also lost $250,000 in an alleged Ponzi scheme. “There are a lot of people around here that lost a lot more money than I did who were smarter and more experienced investors,” McKenney said. The common misconception about investment fraud victims is that they are gullible, unsophisticated or financially illiterate. In fact, research conducted for the FINRA Investor Education Foundation and AARP reveals just the opposite is true. The survey of more than 300 investors—half of whom were victimized by fraud—showed that victims tend to be higher income, college-educated, self-reliant and are more financially knowledgeable than non-victim investors. Many investment fraud victims are professionals. They’re doctors, lawyers, stock

brokers, businessmen. In fact, the typical investment fraud victim is a well-educated male between the ages of 55 and 65. The problem, says Robert Cialdini, a psychologist at Arizona State University and an expert on the psychology of persuasion and influence, is that your own self confidence lowers your guard. “If you think you’re invulnerable to these things, your defenses come down and you become more vulnerable as a consequence,” he said. “So those individuals who have the background and experience, who think they know what constitutes a trick and what doesn’t, then open themselves up to the possibility of being tricked because they’re sure that they can spot it and resist it. Oftentimes they are wrong.” is a project of the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, in collaboration with AARP, the Maine Office of Securities and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Are You at Risk for Investment Fraud? FINRA Foundation/AARP research shows that the typical victim of investment fraud is a well-educated male between the ages of 55 and 65. You also may be at risk if you: 1. Own high-risk investments. 2. Rely on friends, family or co-workers for advice. 3. Are open to new investment ideas. 4. Fail to check backgrounds and registrations of professionals or products. 5. Are not able to spot the persuasion tactics con men use.

Reign ends from previous page some undisclosed injury, Wells has a good alibi for next week in the Western B Final at top-ranked Mountain Valley (10-0) after jumping out to a huge lead and turning early to the reserves. Cape Elizabeth got the ball back and punted on the last play of the first quarter. On the first play of the second quarter, Wells junior Louis DiTomasso broke a 69-yard touchdown run around right end to make it 21-0. DiTomasso ran twice for 100 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the game. Even so, the Capers still trailed just 21-0 with two minutes left in the second quarter. If they could hold the score, there was still

Bagel Guy from page 1 out on his delivery route, often hanging bags of bagels on door knobs and taking cleverly hidden payments in return. “I love my bagels, but it’s really a service I’m selling,” the 57-year-old said. Much like a mail carrier, he delivers in all weather – rain, snow, sleet or hail – and by 7 a.m. seven days a week. “It’s 7:30 a.m. and it’s a blizzard outside,” Yesse said. “Do you want to get out of your

South Portland from page 1 dinates. School leaders, meanwhile, have resisted past efforts by the council, which sets the bottom line for school spending, to delve deep into their budget, which accounts for about two thirds of all city spending. The issue of the city-school relationship was particularly prominent during the council’s mayoral caucus at the Community Center on Monday night, when De Angelis and Councilor Maxine Beecher campaigned for mayor. Beecher earned the support of Councilor Tom Blake and Councilor-elect Alan Livingston, a School Board member. Beecher cited her support of the high school bond and her respect of the board’s budgeting authority. “It’s not our job to tell them where to spend their money,” Beecher said. “We’re not allowed to line-item.” De Angelis, a former school teacher and union leader, argued that she has always been a strong supporter of the schools and her skills as a facilitator would be useful over the next year. Meanwhile, Mayor Tom Coward said De Angelis’s experience working for the district would prove valuable during budget discussions. “She is the only one on the council who has worked in the School Department (so) she knows where to look,” Coward said. “I think she’s not afraid to ask the tough questions. I think that’s the case – that tough questions need to be asked.” De Angelis said on Tuesday that she worked as a high school teacher for the district for about 25 years and was heavily involved in the teacher’s union for the last six years of her tenure. De Angelis said she resigned from the School Department in 2002. De Angelis admitted that she often



hope for a chance to regroup at the break and chip away at the lead. But the Warriors had different plans. After an exchange of punts, Wells had a first down at its own 15 and picked up six yards on a Sherburne run out to the 21. On second down, senior fullback Chad Whitten popped a trap in the spread offense and rumbled 79 yards down the numbers for a score and Wells led 28-0 to end the first half. Whitten ran tough in the team’s first meeting but in this one carried just four times for 92 yards. Things went downhill for Cape Elizabeth from there. Wells senior Michael MoatsCarpenter took the second half kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown and then intercepted Danielson’s next throw on the Capers next series.

Moats-Carpenter won a jump ball on the sideline and returned it 20 yards across midfield to the Cape Elizabeth 31 before he was forced out of bounds. Again DiTomasso went untouched around end on first down for the touchdown. Sophomore Joey Spinelli missed the point-after but at that point it didn’t really matter with Wells now leading 41-0 with 9:15 still left to play in the third quarter. “In the grand scheme of things we ran out of bullets,” said Filieo. “This season we couldn’t find a way to cure the original problem. We made too many mistakes. That’s on the coaches. We worked hard. We prepared hard. They were physical. We just made too many mistakes.” Danielson returned a fumble 52 yards for

the Capers’ lone score in the fourth quarter. The Wells reserves ran in a touchdown late for the final score. In the NFL they call it a Super Bowl hangover, the season after a team at least advances to the championship game. There’s no question Cape Elizabeth suffered a season after graduating a team that had a lot invested in it. The Capers lost a top-flight quarterback, receiver and tailback from the offense and several high-caliber players on defense. Next year they will hope to reload while graduating 15 seniors including captains in Danielson, Barber along with Jack McDonald and John Harrison. Patrick Tyler, Cyrus Wolfinger, Connor McAleney and Paul Hansen also move on.

bed and go get bagels? Or do you me to get out of my bed, bake them and put them on your door?” And the work doesn’t end with the last delivery, said Yesse, who returns home and begins making the next day’s bagel orders. Yesse has been cooking bagels in his home for about five years. The New Jersey native had a hankering that could not be satisfied by local bagels, so he found a recipe he liked and began making them for himself and his family. “I’m the kind of guy who cannot find something, I go after it,” he said.

Soon, Yesse’s friends caught a whiff of his hobby and wanted bagels, too. Then, his freinds’ friends heard about the home baker and also wanted in on the action. The rest, Yesse said, is history. “This has been completely word-ofmouth advertising,” he said. “The most I’ve done is made T-shirts.” Yesse delivers his bagels to three local cafes: the PeRx-U-Up Cafe on Marginal Way in Portland, the Cambridge Coffee Bar Bakehouse on Broadway in South Portland and the Local Buzz in Cape Elizabeth. Meanwhile, Yesse said he also delivers to between 50 and 60 private homes and has catered numerous business meetings. Many of his private clients order a week’s worth of bagels at a time, he said. The growth of Yesse’s business forced him to convert his 10-by-12-foot garage into a small bakery.

Only into his first year in his expanded bakery, Yesse said he is already thinking about expanding into a new space, one that will allow him sell his bagels to walk-in clients. But not before he can pay off his expansion, he said. Any new bakery, however, would have to be in South Portland, Yesse said. “It fits in with the neighborhood and the people,” he said. “It’s a nice lifestyle.” Yesse said he typically offers more than a dozen varieties of bagels and is willing to make special orders. “If you have had a bagel you can’t find, I will create it for you,” he said. “It’s a world of choices.” But the cream cheese and lox? That’s up to you, he said.

clashed with the superintendent during contract negotiations and her 2003 election to the City Council brought trepidation among school officials, who perceived her as having “an axe to grind.” “And I didn’t,” De Angelis said of that perception. “I’m a strong supporter of school budgets, but not without questions.” Livingston questioned both Beecher and De Angelis about what their top three priorities would be as mayor and how they would better communicate budget guidance to School Board members. “Last year, for budget guidance, I never saw a more demoralized School Board,” Livingston said of the night they were told to hold the line on taxes. Playing off of Livingston’s campaign of “building bridges,” Beecher said “I don’t have to build bridges. They’re already there.” De Angelis said she will literally seek more equal ground for budget discussions by having councilors sit mixed in with School Board members. She would also look for efficiencies, such as consolidating the city and school finance departments. “We need to look more like a team, rather than opposing teams,” she said. Baxter, meanwhile, said he would like to see the two panels maintain a dialog throughout the year, possibly holding joint meetings once a month. While concerned about De Angelis’s past stance on some school issues, Baxter said he is confident the two leaders will be able to work together towards the best interests of the city. “Certainly, Rosemarie has made herself clear about how she feels about some school issues and it concerns me,” he said. “But I really think we can work together. Her and I go back a long ways and I think the two of us can work through those issues.” Randy Billings can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 100 or

Perfect Storm from page 15 Elizabeth (a recent postseason nemesis) in the quarterfinals. They held off No. 5 Cheverus, 2-1, in the semis, surrendering their first and only goal of the season on a penalty kick. Wednesday, Scarborough rode senior Haley Carignan’s second half goal to a 1-0 victory over No. 2 Thornton Academy. The Red Storm had never made it to the Class A state final, losing in three previous regional final appearances earlier in the decade. Scarborough did win the Class B crown in 1998 (2-1 over Ellsworth) and 1999 (5-2 over Ellsworth). The then-

Redskins dropped a 4-3, double overtime decision to Winslow in their last state appearance, the 2000 Class B Final. Bangor, which has had fine teams in recent years, only to play in the shadow of Brunswick, Mt. Ararat and Waterville, broke through this time, upsetting seemingly invincible defending state champion Brunswick in the regional final to reach the state game for the second time. Saturday, from start to finish, it was Scarborough’s day. The Red Storm turned on the pressure immediately, but weren’t rewarded with a goal for almost 20 minutes. First, Hughes took a pass from senior Tori Armishaw and directed a shot on goal

that hit a Rams’ defender and appeared bound for the net before Bangor junior goalkeeper Mia Smith made the save. Three minutes later, an Armishaw rush was broken up at the last second. With 22:55 left in the 40-minute first half, Bagley crossed to sophomore Sarah Martens, but her shot was just off the mark. Seventeen seconds later, Bagley attempted a shot, but Smith made the save. Scarborough kept pushing and earned a corner kick. Then, with 20:53 to play before halftime, Little’s kick was redirected by Bagley into the goal and the Red Storm had the only score they’d need and a 1-0 lead. “Emma just kind of went for it and it went right in,” said Little. “It felt good, but we kept thinking it was 0-0 and kept up the pressure.” The tandem almost hooked up again with 15:10 remaining, but Little’s cross barley eluded Bagley. A minute later, Armishaw nudged the ball just wide. While Bangor couldn’t do anything offensively, barely advancing the ball past midfield, Scarborough probed the Rams’ defense and took a 2-0 advantage with 1:37 left before halftime when Armishaw’s free kick was saved, but not held by Smith and Hughes was there to bang it home. “I was shocked because I thought we’d have state jitters since we’d never been here before, but once we settled down and possessed, we controlled the entire game,” Armishaw said. “You worry about nerves and we just possessed,” Farley added. “We had no letdown and came out passionate from the opening whistle. I think we just wanted it. We won the last two games in the second half. We won this one in the first half. Those early goals really changed the game.” As expected, with its season on the line, Bangor came out invigorated in the second half and pressured, but senior Nicolette Caron broke up the rush of Rams senior Kim Jordan 1:32 in and after Bangor kept the pressure on for the next few minutes, the Red Storm were able to counter-attack and it led to the backbreaking goal. With 33:49 to go, junior Kaitlin Reynolds passed to Armishaw, who fed Little with a perfect pass and Little’s blast was too hard for Smith to stop as it tickled the twine for a 3-0 lead. “I saw Kaitlin was going to cross it and

that Tori was going to go for it and I went kind of behind her and I knew I had to keep going for it and I got the ball, looked up at the goalie and just placed it in the far corner,” said Little. “Coach said that the first 10 minutes of the half, we had to step it up and not settle for the two goals, that the third goal would be the biggest goal,” Armishaw said. “We’ve been playing with each other since the fourth grade and know where each other will be. We click. That’s how we won and how we were so successful.” “In the second half, to Bangor’s credit, they came out and put up a lot of pressure,” Farley added. “Bangor a tough team to give up no goals against. They’re very dangerous. It was only 2-0, so we knew the next goal was going to be huge. Luckily, after the play was going their way, we got a break to go our way and scored another goal. It was against the run of play. That really changed the game.” Bangor junior Ashley Robinson had three chances later in the half, but either missed or was denied by Scarborough senior goalkeeper Jill Deering. Late in the contest, Farley substituted liberally and replaced Deering with senior Abby Van Note (who saw ample playing time this year and helped contribute to the shutout streak). Down the stretch, there was no way the Red Storm were about to give up a goal and despite seven corner kicks for the Rams (Scarborough finished with 10), the score remained 3-0 and when the final horn sounded, the new champions exulted. “It’s great, unbelievable,” Armishaw said. “We definitely felt the pressure and getting here the pressure was still on obviously, but it feels great now.” “It’s an awesome feeling,” said Little. “We’ve worked hard the whole time and knew with 12 seniors, it was our year to go as far as we could and we definitely did that. We’ve played soccer together since travel years so we knew we had to play really hard.” “Everything is just so wonderful,” said junior defensive specialist Emily Tolman. “We knew Bangor would be a difficult team. They have so many talented players. We were shocked to get up by three. We thought it would be a close 1-0 game. We were surprised.” continued page 19

“Scarborough played very well,” said legendary Cheverus coach John Wolfgram. “They have a lot of good pieces and coach Johnson’s done a good job putting them together. They weren’t 8-1 with smoke and mirrors. They run well and do sound things. They gave us all we wanted for sure.”

Football from page 15 We had a direct snap to Mike Cyr, our best player, and thought we could get a first down, but it was just a bad snap.” The Stags took over at their 44 and drove for the go-ahead score, a 3-yard run from senior quarterback Peter Gwilym. Scarborough got a 13 yard run from Thibeault to start its next series and Adams found Cyr for 19 to the Stags’ 38, but Adams then threw three straight incomplete passes and on fourth-and-10, was intercepted by Cheverus senior Liam Hobbins to end the half. In the first 24 minutes, the Stags had a narrow 168-166 advantage in total yardage. The game remained tight in the third and fourth quarters. After Cheverus turned the ball over on downs to start the second half, the Red Storm drove 65 yards to tie the score. A 14-yard Adams-to-senior Joe Viola pass moved the ball into Stags’ territory. After gritty senior running back Mark Pearson rumbled for 11, Adams hit Cyr with a pass to the left and the talented senior broke a tackle and raced 37-yards for paydirt. Provencher’s extra point tied it at 14-14 with 6:12 to go in the third quarter. Scarborough’s defense forced a punt and the visitors got the ball right back

Perfect Storm from page 18

The streak Coming into the season, Scarborough figured its defense would be solid, but to go nearly 1,500 minutes without giving a goal in the run of play is unfathomable. In retrospect, it was a complete team effort. “Our defense is proud,” Tolman said. “Everyone works so hard. Once we got the streak going, we didn’t want to let one in. It’s the whole team. It has to go through everyone to get to the back.” “Our defense really stayed strong,” Little said. “We had good all-around players, defense, midfield and even strikers. When you work well together, then you’re unstoppable.” “I would have never thought that in a million years think you can put a season like

with a chance to take the lead. The Red Storm would move to the Cheverus 29, but on second-and-9 from the 29, Adams was sacked by Jendrasko, fumbled and senior A.J. Bennett made a crucial recovery for the Stags, sending momentum back to the home sideline. The hosts then drove for the lead, going this together,” Farley added. “All the credit to these players. They did an amazing job of staying focused in every game. It was 25 players. Two goalkeepers and players off the bench. They all earned it.”

More to come? Scarborough will be hard hit by graduation, but the cupboard won’t be left bare. Several underclassmen saw ample playing time in 2010 and will look to keep the good times rolling in 2011. While next year’s team might not be perfect, it will make a run at a second straight title. “It will be hard to rebuild, but I think we can do it,” said Tolman. “We have so much talent coming up and the non-starters are all so talented.” “We’ve played everyone all year long,” Farley added. “A lot of kids got good experience. We have big shoes to fill, but I think we’ll be good again next year.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at

ahead, 21-14, on a 2-yard run from Jendrasko with 7:38 to play. To its credit, Scarborough didn’t wilt. The Red Storm made immediate noise when sophomore Merrick Madden returned the kickoff 39 yards to the Scarborough 41. Two plays later, Adams found Kelley for 28 yards, as the receiver hauled in the ball while falling to the ground with Gwilym breathing down his neck. Pearson gained seven yards and Thibeault two, but on third-and-1 from the 15, Pearson was held for no gain. Scarborough went for it on fourth down, but again the Stags’ defense rose to the occasion, holding Pearson to no gain and with 5:06 left, the hosts took over at their 15. “It could have been very different,” Johnson lamented. “If we scored, we could have tied it up.” Scarborough never saw the ball again. On third-and-8 from the 17, Gwilym found senior Jack Bushey for 29 yards and the Stags had some breathing room. From there, Jendrasko, Hobbins and Gwilym salted away the victory and time soon ran out on the hard-fought 21-14 triumph.

Johnson was emotional after the loss, but still had plenty of praise to bestow. “Cheverus is a good, physical team,” he said. “I think we gave them everything they could handle. With all the spread offenses, how many teams run at people anymore? We’re one of the teams that can do that. Nobody had run at them or even tried. I thought we could. I think we had some success and play-actioned off it. We had chances. We just couldn’t capitalize. “A ton of people told me not to take this job, but I watched film and said, ‘You’re crazy.’ I’m not surprised at all, I’m only surprised we didn’t win this game. They’re good kids. They work hard. They’re very coachable. They gave me a terrific effort mentally and physically the whole year.” Pearson rushed 23 times for 96 tough yards. Thibeault added 40 yards and a score on seven tries. Adams completed 11-of-22 passes for 155 yards, a TD and an interception. “Jack played great,” said Johnson. “He kept us in it and kept the ball moving.” Viola caught three passes, good for 32 yards. Cyr had two catches for 56 yards and a TD. Kelley caught a pair for 39 and Thibeault had two receptions for 19. Statistically, Cheverus gained 328 yards, 30 more than the Red Storm. Scarborough was flagged three times for 15 yards and turned the ball over twice.

Mission unaccomplished

The Red Storm lose several key contributors to graduation, but figure to remain a contender going forward. “We have linemen in every class,” Johnson said. “A lot of players. We dressed 16 freshmen today. We should be over 50 kids next year and have a lot of athletes and more depth at line next year.” Sports Editor Michael Hoffer can be reached at

Each candidate will appoint people to oversee the recount and the state parties are providing attorneys to sort out any contested ballots, the candidates said. Since the margin of victory is less than 2 percent of the total number of votes cast, Palmieri will not have to pay for the recount, Dunlap said.

Pesticide from page 5 ban anything in Falmouth. But I would say it’s on people’s radar here.” Some municipalities restrict pesticide use near bodies of water while others are more comprehensive. Brunswick’s ordinance allows application of only organic products on town-owned land, which is defined as “all land owned or leased by the Town of Brunswick and managed by the Town of Brunswick Parks and Recreation Department, including outdoor grounds such as parks, playing fields, conservation and open space.” However, the ordinance allows a waiver in case of “an immediate threat to human health or environmental quality, or an immediate threat of substantial property damage or loss.” Tukey said for a long time, it has been accepted that organic alternatives cost more than chemicals. He said organic applications result in the need to mow less and water less and lawns don’t require dethatching because the grass doesn’t grow as quickly or as thick. “You have to take in the whole equation,” he said. DiBiase noted organic options are often less concentrated than chemical treatments and may take more time to show results. DiBiase said she hopes the summit will help educate people as to what each town has already done as well as open a discussion on how to create awareness. She said she would like to see action taken at the state level rather then each municipality creating its own set of rules. “But legislation won’t go through unless there are benefits for both sides,” DiBiase said. The Maine Pesticide Summit takes place Nov. 20 at Unitarian Universalist Church, 15 Pleasant St., from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. RSVP by calling 871-1810. The event is open to the public.

Out & About

Symphony plus Sinatra, Hot Club, and more By Scott Andrews There’s a diverse wealth of interesting music coming up over the course of the next week or so. The riches start this Saturday and Sunday when the Portland Symphony Orchestra morphs into Pops mode, and features a guest who performs a Frank Sinatra tribute act. Portland Ovations presents two backto-back performances next week. First up, Nov. 16, is the Hot Club of San Francisco, a “Gypsy jazz” ensemble that’s modeled after the famous Hot Club de France. The next night it’s Kirill Gerstein, a pianist who recently won the Gilmore Artist Award, perhaps the world’s most prestigious and remunerative prize for keyboard virtuosity. Joy Kills Sorrow, a band from Boston that’s gone well beyond its bluegrass roots, plays Nov. 18 in Portland.

Portland Symphony Orchestra An American musical legend is celebrated this weekend as the Portland Symphony Orchestra performs a pair of Pops concerts. The program is titled “Simply Sinatra,” and maestro Robert Moody has invited vocalist Steve Lippia to perform the role of Frank Sinatra. Born in Hoboken, N.J., Sinatra started singing professionally in the 1930s and became a top-rated national star and teen idol with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in the 1940s. As he reached middle age in the 1950s and lost his teenage followers, he reignited his career with more adult material and kept singing through the early 1990s, when he finally retired. Lippia’s tribute act flows from his love of the style of Sinatra and his many timeless hit tunes, such as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Cheek To Cheek” and “My Way.” Lippia loves the “comfort zone” that seems to engulf the music of this era, and he’s especially concerned with conveying the spirit of the lyrics. Lippia’s high-impact, high-energy show ranges from powerful to subtle, sassy to wistful and elegant to sublime. Lippia has headlined to standing-room-only crowds at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club in New York City, backed by the Nelson Riddle and Woody Herman Orchestras. And like Sinatra, he’s enjoyed long-running gigs at several Las Vegas venues. The show isn’t totally Sinatra; Lippia also performs tunes made popular by Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and Sammy Davis Jr. Portland Symphony Orchestra performs “Simply Sinatra” twice this weekend: at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 14. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Hot Club of San Francisco Another retrospective act comes to the Port

Comment on this story at:

The Hot Club of San Francisco, which visits Portland Nov. 16, is famous for playing “Gypsy jazz” in the style of Django Reinhart, Stephane Grappelli and the Hot Club de France.

City two days later, as Portland Ovations hosts the Hot Club of San Francisco on Nov. 16. HCSF plays “Gypsy jazz,” a format using three guitars, a violin and a bass that was created in the 1930s by two Frenchmen: Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Reinhardt, who was born 100 years ago, grew up in a Gypsy community near Paris, fell under the influence of American jazz artists and their recordings in the 1920s. A guitarist himself, Reinhardt adopted and adapted the musical vocabulary of big bands of the time into small, all-strings stylings that often alternate between flamboyant and melancholy. With Grappelli, a violinist, he formed the Hot Club de France, a Paris-based quintet that quickly attracted the attention of American jazz musicians, such as Louis Armstrong, Coleman Hawkins and Benny Carter. Decades later, Reinhardt collaborated with Dizzy Gillespie. The Hot Club of San Francisco was created by Paul Mehling, a California guitarist who became immersed in the sounds of mid-20th century jazz as he grew up listening to his father’s huge record collection. As a professional musician, Mehling found to his delight that today’s audiences are ready for a revival of the Reinhardt-Grappelli five-instrument Gypsy jazz format. Mehling’s success has inspired imitations all over the world, including a Hot Club of New York and a Hot Club of Norway. For next Tuesday’s performance, the ensemble will play accompaniment to several silent films in a program titled “Silent Surrealism.” Portland Ovations presents the Hot Club of San Francisco at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 at Hannaford Hall in the Abromson Community Education Center at 88 Bedford St. on the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

as soon as word got out this January, Petrin hired the 2010 honoree, Russian-born pianist Kirill Gerstein. A child prodigy who was raised in Russia and started playing jazz as a 10-year-old, Gerstein came to the U.S. at age 14 to study jazz in Boston – the youngest college student in the history of the Berklee School. He switched to classical a year later, after burning out on jazz. Becoming an American citizen in 2003, Gerstein still lives near Boston and teaches piano at the New England Conservatory. He also holds a similar professorship at a major German music academy. In addition to solo piano recitals, Gerstein has played with many of the world’s top orchestras and conductors. Gerstein’s Nov. 17 program will include works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Carl Czerny and Franz Liszt. Portland Ovations presents Kirill Gerstein at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 17 at Merrill Auditorium at Portland City Hall. Call PortTix at 842-0800.

Joy Kills Sorrow

following night. Joy Kills Sorrow is a band that’s rooted in bluegrass but has embraced other acoustic styles. Formed under the banner “a modern American string band,” Joy Kills Sorrow emerged from Boston’s fertile folk music scene in 2005, releasing an eponymous debut album in 2007. Founding member Matthew Arcara, a subtle and expressive guitarist, was the 2006 winner of Winfield’s National Flatpicking Championship. The band’s most recent addition, mandolinist Jacob Jolliff, is the Berklee School’s first full-scholarship mandolin student. The band boasts a large repertoire of original songs, most penned by bassist Bridget Kearney, winner of the 2006 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Singer Emma Beaton, the 2008 Canadian Folk Music Awards’ Young Performer of the Year, adds an earthy, powerful presence. Joy Kills Sorrow plays at 8 p.m. Nov. 18 at One Longfellow Square (corner of State and Congress) in Portland. Call 761-1757.

Kirill Gerstein In her first few years at the helm of Portland Ovations, Executive Director Aimee Petrin has established a policy of engaging recent winners of the Gilmore Artist Prize, a $300,000 stipend that is awarded every four years to an unsuspecting pianist by an anonymous panel of judges. Because of the extreme secrecy behind the selection process, the Gilmore is sometimes referred to as the “stealth award.” Previously, Portland Ovations has present Gilmore winners Ingrid Fliter, Leif Ove Andsnes and Piotr Anderszewski.

property,” he said. Resident Ange Foley spoke to the council in support of the resolution. She said health, safety and privacy concerns have not been made clear by CMP. Resident Sara Merrill said she had her smart meter removed after calling CMP because she wanted more information about the technology. “There are too many unknowns,” Merrill said. “We don’t have all the numbers. We need to be better informed.” Scarborough resident Elisa Boxer-Cook, leader of a group of residents who challenged CMP’s installation of smart meters to the PUC, read a letter to the council from a Cape resident and pediatrician, Dr. Karen K. Emery of Maine Health Pediatrics in Falmouth, who couldn’t attend the meeting, but urged the council to pass the resolution. Emery’s letter said it was wise to err on the side of caution with high-frequency wireless technology that adds new exposure without first conducting thorough research. “I don’t believe we should install smart meters and wait for the science to conclusively show no risk, because by then it will be too late,” she said. “As part of Maine’s medical community, treating our most

vulnerable population, I believe we need to halt installation long enough to hold community-wide and statewide meetings discussing both sides of the science, not simply presenting CMP’s hired experts showing no cause for concern.” At the very least, Emery said, “we should have a choice.” CMP spokesman John Carroll attended the meeting and told councilors while he is not a health expert and could not speak to the concerns of the residents, the meters are a necessary upgrade from the existing technology. He said customers could save money by monitoring their electricity usage, and CMP is becoming more green and saving time and money by eliminating the need for someone to drive to around and read meters. He said the council was voting on devices that are already in use in schools, public safety buildings, Town Hall and public buildings. “Before you act,” Carroll said, “ask if you have done the due diligence yourselves like we have.” Amy Anderson can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 110 or

Contract from page 5 performance evaluation of Godin in April, saying that the session was “very good.” Meanwhile, Baxter would not comment about whether the board had any concerns about Godin’s request for a salary increase, or the other stipend increases approved by the board. “There was no public comment about that,” Baxter said.

Godin said she believes the contract is an acknowledgement of the progress the district is making towards its goals. “While we continue to face fiscal challenges, the board expressed an awareness that maintaining a zero increase over the past two years has put the South Portland superintendent salary significantly behind comparable districts,” Godin said. Last year, the more than 300-member teachers’ union agreed to a wage freeze for the 2010-11 school year, in exchange for

a raise the following year to be tied to the Consumer Price Index. The Administrators’ Association, meanwhile, agreed to wage freezes for the last two years, before receiving a 2 percent raise this year, Baxter said. “All I can tell you is what was said in public,” Baxter said. “In public, the board was very supportive of the superintendent.” James Gilboy was the only board member to comment Monday night on the contract.

“There’s so much going on in the School Department and (Godin) has her thumb on everything,” Gilboy said. “I appreciate that.” Since the contract language had not been written as of Monday, Baxter said the board will likely conduct a contract signing ceremony at the board’s next scheduled meeting.

Smart meters from page 1 Complaint is not a complaint against the installation of new Smart Meters, but rather is a complaint as to a utility’s underlying right to replace meters or perform any type of disconnection.” It goes on to explain that the complainants cite disruption of electrical wires as the reason for the alleged fire hazards. CMP asserts that the complainants are arguing that the company should not be able to disconnect a customer under any circumstance, something that it says it is


allowed to do by law. In a letter sent to the PUC on Nov. 5, Hill addressed CMP’s argument: “None of the complainants contested the right of CMP to replace meters in homes with older wiring.” Hill explained that it was the combination of a potential fire hazard and advertisements by the meter installation company, VSI, that it would hire installation technicians without experience or electricians’ licenses, that were the origins of the complaint. She asked that the PUC determine how VSI’s employees would be trained before allowing CMP to continue the installation process.

“I would like to see CMP have a published and clear policy on their procedures for dealing with old wiring and smart meter installations and have that sent to homeowners in advance, alerting them to the potential expense and problem,” Hill said. She added that she volunteers with the elderly and worries that older customers might not be able to afford to replace wiring in their homes, leaving them without electricity during the winter. In its response, CMP stated that, prior to the smart meter project, the company

conducted more than 17,000 regular meter installations per year. “The approach that the Company is taking in deployment of Smart Meters is consistent with its policy for all other meter installations,” the letter stated. The meters, which communicate wirelessly with each other, then broadcast signals sent by antennas and repeaters to CMP’s Augusta office, have already been installed on more than 70,000 homes in the greater Portland area. CMP plans to install meters on all 620,000 homes in its service area by 2012.

Smart meters from page 33

Health, security concerns CMP has requested an extension until Nov. 18 on the second PUC complaint, filed by Elisa Boxer-Cook of Scarborough, who cited radiation-related health concerns and cyber security as the reasons for the complaint. CMP’s letter, dated Nov. 3, indicated Boxer-Cook had no opposition to the extension. The letter also made a formal “general denial” of Boxer-Cook’s allegations, but did not provide a detailed argument. The Maine Center for Disease Control this week provided CMP with some support. On Nov. 8 it released a summary of its findings on the meters, stating that “studies to date give no consistent or convincing evidence of a causal relation between (radio frequency) exposure in the range of frequencies and power used by smart meters and adverse health effects.” The CDC compared smart meters to cell phones, calling the radiation from phones much greater than the meters, and cited a May 2010 study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology that found no link between cell phone use and two of

the most common types of brain cancer. Both PUC complaints asked CMP to offer customers the ability to opt out of the smart meter service, something the company has said it will not be able to offer because of the software and infrastructure required. “If given the option I would opt-out of receiving a smart meter, especially since the meter I have isn’t broken and works just fine,” Hill said. “Just because something isn’t the latest doesn’t mean it’s not the smartest option.” Dr. Amy Kustra Barksdale of the Portland Community Health Center and Scarborough’s local health official, Dr. Stephen Kirsch of Scarborough Family Physicians, both provided letters of support to Boxer-Cook’s complaint and asked that people be given the right to opt out of the service. They said people who may have medically documented electromagnetic hypersensitivity or devices such as pacemakers that could be affected by the wireless radiation. But the CDC’s review cited unnamed double-blind laboratory studies that found those diagnosed with electromagnetic hypersensitivity could not document exposure any more accurately than those without the diagnosis. Gary Conover, owner of Computerworks in Scarborough, also filed a letter in support of Boxer-Cook’s complaint, citing concerns that the meters may become targets for hackers seeking private


customer data. In his letter, Conover explained potential weaknesses in the mesh networks the smart meters utilize to communicate. CMP has stated in the past that it already has encryption software in place to protect data, but has not responded to Conover’s specific concerns.

Next steps “In both cases, the commission will be deciding what other pieces of the process are needed,” PUC spokeswoman Evelyn deFrees said. While there is not a formal time-line for evaluating the two complaints and CMP’s responses, deFrees said after the PUC gathers any additional information it requires, it will make a determination about whether it will start an adjudicatory process or dismiss the complaints. Either party has the right to appeal the PUC’s decision or to lobby the state Legislature to change the law passed last year that allows and regulates smart meters. On Oct. 20, the Scarborough Town Council asked CMP to delay installation of the smart meters for 90 days. The council is in the process of scheduling a public meeting for residents to voice their concerns and ask questions of PUC and CMP officials. Councilors in Cape Elizabeth passed a similar resolution on Nov. 8 asking for a 90-day moratorium until a PUC forum could be scheduled. Scarborough Town Manager Tom Hall suggested Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough could hold a joint

from page 3 hoping to do that with a few more over Thanksgiving break.” The idea, he said, is to get as many windows out before Christmas as possible so the installation of the new windows over the winter break is more efficient. Each time a window is taken out, the classroom must be tested for asbestos, which slows down the replacement process. The windows have been ordered, however, because they must be specially built to fit the classrooms, Jepson said. “The teachers have been really great,” he said. “Their patience has been something I’ve very much appreciated.” Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or
