Mall owner out of bankruptcy, seeks return of $925K in taxes By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The owners of the Maine Mall are appealing their 2009 property tax assessment, seeking the return of nearly $1 million. The appeal by Chicago-based General Growth Properties, which

recently emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, comes nearly a year after a state panel denied a similar appeal. Attorney Jonathan Goldberg, who represents GGP, said the current appeal is based on the continued slide of the retail economy.

“We’re not simply making the argument that the economy is slumping, therefore our taxes should be reduced,” Goldberg said. “The argument is based on the actual situation at the Maine Mall.” Goldberg said the struggling

economy has reduced occupancy rates at the mall and impacted the tenant mix, which the company argues directly affects the value of the property. Mall Manager Craig Gorris said on Wednesday he could not comment on specific changes at the

Scarborough asks PUC to halt ‘smart’-meter installations By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — The Town Council voted unanimously Wednesday to ask the Maine Public Utilities Commission to prohibit Central Maine Power Co. from installing “smart” electric meters in town until more information about their safety is available. The action came after a five-hour meeting with CMP officials on Monday, where residents lined up to speak out against the installation of the meters on their homes. “It is the duty of council to protect the health, safety and welfare of our citizens,” council Vice Chairman Michael Wood said. “This is the follow-up (to Monday’s meeting) and an appropriate step in my view.” The council’s letter will ask the PUC to provide an opt-out provision for customers who do not wish to have smart meters on their homes and also asks the regulatory agency to reopen the approval process that was ratified by the Legislature earlier this year. “I wish more towns would do that,” Averyl Hill, a Scarborough resident who filed one of the two PUC

Town council kills neighborhood zoning change By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — The Town Council rejected a zoning change Wednesday that would have allowed a two-story office building on Elmwood Avenue. The council voted unanimously against the zoning change sought

by Maine Eye Center, siding with more than 15 residents who spoke against the change. The six-acre property, owned by the Maine Department of Transportation, was put up for sale recently and is in a residential zone. However, when the property was

listed by a commercial real estate broker, Scarborough Economic Development Corp. began lobbying the town to change the zoning from residential to commercial biomedical. “If it were rezoned, Maine Eye is exactly the kind of use I would

By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The School Board has removed itself from the selection of an interim board member to represent District 5. The vacancy was created when the current District 5 representative, Alan Livingston, was elected Nov. 2 to an at-large seat on the City Council. The council has responsibility for filling vacant seats on the School Board, but in the past, it has routinely approved candidates nominated by the School Board without receiving or considering everyone who applied. But this year, councilors will see the process through from start to finish. The change comes a year after an appointment to a vacant District 3 School Board seat elicited criticism because of the school superintendent’s involvement. As an employee of the board, the superintendent was perceived by some to have had a conflict of interest by helping to choose one of her bosses. School Board Chairman Rick Carter said the panel is willing to offer its input this year, but will otherwise remain on the sidelines since there is no established procedure for picking appointees. Authority in the City Charter is simply given to the council, he said. “A year ago, when people were unhappy with that situa-

complaints against CMP, said Wednesday. “We need their support.” Emotions ran high at Monday’s public forum, where more than 90 people discussed their health concerns with the me-

Council delays decision on parking restrictions at Higgins Beach By Emily Parkhurst SCARBOROUGH — Despite the efforts of some Higgins Beach residents, surfers and winter beach-goers will still be able to park along the beach during the off-season – for now. As midnight approached Wednesday, the Town Council unanimously tabled until Dec. 15 proposed changes to the parking ordinance for the Higgins Beach area.

The proposals include limiting onstreet parking to 30 minutes during the off season, creating a five-minute drop off area during the summer, and giving the Higgins Beach Inn exclusive rights to some town-owned parking spaces. “I think we need to try something and see if it works,” Council Chairwoman Judy Roy said. The issue has pitted homeowners against winter those who use the beach

periodically during the off season. Homeowners claimed the surfers were routinely changing in front of their homes, exposing themselves and urinating on people’s lawns. Surfers said there may have been a few people who broke the rules, but that this was an issue of enforcement. They also called the parking ban an erosion of access to a public beach. With more than 30 people still in the audience when the issue finally came up on Wednesday’s agenda, some councilors wanted to discuss ideas for compromise. “We’ve got to somehow come to a consensus on how this is going to end,” Councilor Ron Ahlquist said, adding that the town’s recent purchase of the parking lot near the beach was giving more people access, not limiting the public’s access. “If we didn’t buy this parking lot, there were people waiting there to buy it and put two houses on it,” he said. “For people to say Scarborough is restricting access to beach, I’m tired of hearing it. We don’t want to deny access to beach, we want to enhance it.” Everyone who spoke during the public forum was against limiting parking along the beach, and a group led by Douglas Lund-Yates turned in a petition signed by more than 500 people asking the town not to limit parking along the beach. “There is a lot of anger and disbelief,” Lund-Yates said. “Many people can’t understand why the town would want to restrict on-street parking in off-season.”

Some called the ad hoc Higgins Beach Committee, made up of mostly beach residents, not representative of the whole town. “A more inclusive group should be convened to do a thorough study to bring reasonable proposals to the town council,” Kerry Corthell said. Several speakers from outside of Scarborough told the council about their love of the beach. Others were residents of the Higgins Beach area who disagreed with the findings of the committee. “I haven’t heard any compelling reason for limiting parking. If we have problems with the way some people are behaving, that’s a public safety issue,” Adam Steinman, a Higgins Beach resident, said. “To couple this (parking restriction) with safety is disingenuous.” When Councilor Michael Wood began to discuss pushing the on-street parking limitations through in favor of bettermarketing the new town parking lot, some people in the audience responded by yelling and disagreeing with him. “There are so many things to discuss. I really don’t feel that I can do justice to this at 11:25 at night,” Councilor Carol Rancourt said. At that point, the council voted to table until its Dec. 15 meeting, when the topic will be first on the agenda. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or eparkhurst@theforecaster.net

Report offers snapshot of dog violations at Willard Beach By Randy Billings SOUTH PORTLAND — The majority of dog owners contacted by police volunteers at Willard Beach over a twomonth period last summer were not in compliance with – and claimed ignorance of – the city’s leash laws. Recommendations to stem the number of violations include increasing the size and number of signs along the beach and allowing volunteers to collect personal information from offenders, who may receive summonses later from the animal control officer. The findings are contained in a November report released by the Police Department, which used trained volunteers to conduct more that two dozen evening patrols in August and September. Police equipped five citizen members of the first Volunteers in Policing Service program with radios and information packets about the city’s dog laws. When violations were observed, the volunteers attempted to give the dog owners fliers explaining the ordinance. The ordinance allows dogs to be on the beach from 7-9 a.m. and 7-9 p.m. from May 1 through Sept. 30. Dogs are allowed on the beach all day from October through April. Dogs are allowed to run off leash, as long as the owner has strict voice control over their pet. Dog waste must be picked up. Officer Linda Barker, who coordinates volunteers, said VIPS members had no authority to issue citations. According to the report, the group, working in pairs, conducted 12 patrols in August and 19 patrols in September. A total of 113 violations were noted, but only seven people reportedly refused to comply with the law when it was explained to them. “The majority of the violations were being on the beach in violation of the

legal times,” Barker said via e-mail. “A very small number were dogs not on leash/voice control and not picking up their dog waste.” In August, volunteers observed 37 dogs, 30 of which were not in compliance with the city ordinance. Eighteen owners claimed not to know the rules and 25 fliers were distributed. Thirty-three owners complied with the rules after they were told, while two did not. In September, volunteers observed 90 dogs, 83 of which were out of compliance. Thirty-four fliers were distributed, and 75 owners claimed ignorance of the ordinance. Seventy-three people complied with the rules once contacted, while five did not. Meanwhile, volunteers confirmed that 40 dog owners were residents of South Portland, 40 were not residents and 47 people could not be identified. Crystal Goodrich, president of the South Portland Dog Owners Association, said she found portions of the report confusing, but was pleased to know that no one was injured by dogs, as some people claimed when trying to ban dogs from the beach last year. Whether dogs have a place on Willard Beach has been a continuing issue in South Portland. It came to a head in 2009, but voters overwhelming rejected a citizen referendum aimed at banning dogs from the beach during the summer and eliminating off-leash access during

other seasons. “It’s good to know there weren’t severe violations,” Goodrich said. “People weren’t getting hurt or some of the other complaints we have heard in the past.” The data analysis and written report were conducted by two students from St. Joseph’s College in Standish who were performing their service-learning programs in South Portland. The report, which does not specify the types of violations, offers five recommendations: • Increase the number and size of signs and clarify instructions. • Attach dog laws to annual dog license renewals or tax bills. • Create a public service announcement for cable TV.

• Expand hours of VIPS patrols. • And allow VIPS to collect identifying information for violators. Goodrich said her group supports the recommendations in the report, especially the calls for bigger signs and increasing enforcement. “I was disappointed to not see any fines,” Goodrich said. “Because that spreads the news and people will be less likely to violate the rules. That’s what we’ve always believed.” City Manager Jim Gailey said it would be up to the Police Department to implement the recommendations as it sees fit.

Cape Elizabeth energy panel works on long-term savings By Amy Anderson CAPE ELIZABETH — After three years of work, the Cape Elizabeth Alternative Energy Committee is still finding ways to limit the town’s carbon footprint and reduce energy costs. With the help of a few extra hands, panel members say they are ready to tackle longterm energy savings by researching and considering alternative power sources.

The group recently lost three members, but welcomed Brian Denison to its meeting Tuesday, Nov. 30, in the William Jordan conference room. The other members are Chairman Wyman Briggs, former Chairman Bill Slack, Alan Lishness and David Whittan. Since its inception in October 2007, the committee has created an alternative energy strategy for school and municipal

buildings; contracted for an energy audit of town buildings; updated lighting, insulation and occupancy sensors in the schools and installed controller upgrades. Ernie MacVane, the town facilities manager, said the biggest accomplishment has been lighting upgrades. He said 10,000 light bulbs have been replaced with the help of $110,000 in grants from Efficiency Maine. There are now 20-watt LED lights outside the fire station and 40-watt LED lights above the doors. The next lighting project will include upgrades to parking lot and sidewalk lights, as well as an evaluation of the number and location of town street lights, he said. Looking ahead, the committee will consider alternative energy options that have large potential savings, such as the use of natural gas and solar thermal. Lishness said even though it could cost about $1.4 million to pipe natural gas from South Portland to Cape’s town center, he said it could create significant savings when compared to future oil prices. “At this point, it looks like the biggest savings to the taxpayer,” Lishness said. “I

think we need to really discuss this or put it to bed.” The group may discuss natural gas at the December meeting, and with a budget of roughly $25,000, MacVane suggested hiring a consultant for additional information. The committee will also research geothermal options by monitoring local companies and schools that have installed the systems. Members will research the cost, maintenance fees and performance. Whittan suggested recruiting more residents for the committee, too. “There are a lot of smart and dedicated people in our community,” Whittan said. “The more people who participate, the more we can accomplish in a shorter amount of time.” The committee did not schedule a time or date for its next meeting yet, but will post it on the town website.

Now that the election dust has settled… Nationally, I don’t think there is any other way to view the mid-term election than as a repudiation of the Obama administration and its allies in Congress. You can say that there was an element of irrationality to that repudiation, but then the same can be said of the Short wave of emotion that the administration rode in on. Elections have consequences, and once in control, the Democrats used their governing majority to implement some of their priorities. Domestically, the highest, most far-reaching of those was health-care reform, which the administration was on the verge of abandoning before Congress forced its hand. Halsey Frank Although reform efforts have been around since the Clinton administration and before, this effort was not well-conceived. Nor was it well-received. Rather than let the states experiment with different mechanisms until a clear favorite emerged, Congress gave us the legislative equivalent of the bum’s rush. They passed a massive bill, which many members voted on without reading. People reacted with serious misgivings about the extent to which the government was going to become involved in one of the more intimate aspects of their lives. They were concerned about the cost of the massive program at a time when the economy was struggling with recession. The other big domestic decision was to extend or expand the various efforts to save our economy from ruination (the toxic asset relief program, Federal Reserve rescue effort and housing crisis relief effort, among others). Some estimate the cost of those efforts at about $3 trillion invested and about $11 trillion committed. Whatever that means. I defer to the experts about the necessity of those measures. But they were perceived as a further bailout of Wall Street while Main Street got relatively little assistance. And Wall Street was perceived as being particularly undeserving. The Street did not improve its image by booking record profits while unemployment remained high. On foreign policy, the new administration did not find it easy to deal with the problems that so bedeviled its predecessor. That’s not surprising. They are difficult ones that require understanding and cooperation. The biggest of those problems is how to combat international terrorism effectively and without unacceptably compromising ourselves. The Obama administration continued and extended many of the practices of the Bush administration, such as airport security screening, Guantanamo, drone attacks and warrantless wiretapping. Because they were effective. Where it varied from previous practice, the Obama administration found the ground tough going and its policies not necessarily superior. Civilian criminal trials for terrorists do not appear to be a reliable way to protect America from terrorists. Admittedly, that was an avenue that the Bush administration started down, but largely because it was brow beaten away from the option of employing military tribunals. Elsewhere, North Korea confirmed that it is a rogue state toward which the Jimmy Carter approach does not work. Russia did not respond to the reset button. The magnitude of the swing from the 2008 election to the 2010 election seems almost spasmodic. The pundits go from pronouncing the death of one party to pronouncing the death of the other. Instead of a well-oiled

Relief

political system we seem to be inhabiting a machine that is vibrating in alarming fashion. Here in Maine, the trends were dampened. We saw the logical extension of a gradual trend that has been in the works for several election cycles since Peter Cianchette got 41 percent to John Baldacci’s 47 percent of the popular vote for governor in 2002. The people of Maine have been uncomfortable about the balance between the size and cost of their government relative to the size and vigor of their private sector. They expressed that unease in a variety of ways, most notably with the 2004 Palesky tax cap, and the 2006 and 2009 taxpayer bills of rights. But the government was not responsive to those concerns. Its signature piece of legislation, the Dirigo health program, costs a lot, insures a little and had a problematic funding mechanism. Rather than provide real, clear tax relief, the Legislature passed a convoluted plan to stabilize revenue and tried to sell it to the people as the tax relief they had been demanding. It was vetoed earlier this year. Along with a favorable wind from the national election, that’s what produced Republican control of the Blaine House and Statehouse. (Democrats retained control of the two congressional seats, proving once again that Mainers are idiosyncratic.) The margins would have been even wider if things had gone a bit differently. This leaves the governor-elect in a position similar to that of the president-elect in 2008. Whether the trend continues depends on the use Republicans make of the opportunity they’ve been given. I hope the LePage administration starts by using its opportunity to hit a few singles up the middle. It may be difficult to find those openings. I would start by downsizing and consolidating government, while streamlining regulation of business. Easier said than done. For example, I favor school consolidation, but it runs against the grain of many Mainers who want to retain local control over such a fundamental government service. We have a lot of people who depend on government. They may not react well to having their benefits streamlined. The LePage

administration needs to be firm, compassionate and understanding. In Portland, Republicans did not do so well. While we continue to have an admirable representative in one of nine seats on the City Council, most of our candidates were decisively defeated. We came closest to winning a seat on the School Committee. The elected mayor proposal passed. It will be difficult for Republicans to win that office given that we are significantly outnumbered in terms of registered voters and the mayoral election is now synchronized with the presidential vote, when turnout is traditionally high. The gubernatorial election produced a clamor, or at least a shout, for similar structural changes in the process of picking a governor. I am skeptical of these post-partisan proposals. We have had supposedly non-partisan politics in Portland for years. People were unhappy enough about it to rewrite the City Charter. It might make sense to see how rank choice voting for mayor fares in Portland before rolling out similar reform statewide. In the meantime, I hope that the political parties improve their game.

Admissions, college and otherwise They say you can’t go back. Well, I am here to tell you, as the mother of a daughter who is in the thick of the college search process, apparently, “they” were wrong. Ophelia is entertaining the notion of attending the same college I attended. The same college her father attended. The same college where we No Sugar fell in love. Should she actually end up there, I could conceivably spend the next four years weeping. Due to both the sizable tuition payments and the sentimental overload. A few weeks ago, I had an alarming realization: my daughter was the precise age I was when I first laid eyes on Drew. The man with whom I would eventually walk down the aisle, share a Sandi Amorello bathroom, and, without too much thought as to the consequences, reproduce. I don’t know about you, but I look at my teenager, on the verge of independence and college living, and I wonder, “Who are you and what have you done with that child who used to try to eat the cat food and threw tea parties for stuffed animals and wrote letters to flower fairies? And why are you always borrowing my mascara?!” When you give birth to these little wondrous creatures,

They’ll be grown up before you know it!” “Childhood flies by. In the blink of an eye, they’ll be in college!” “It goes by in an instant!” When you’re attempting to carry on a conversation about Dr. Seuss with a 5-year-old while simultaneously chasing a crazed toddler down the street and attempting to keep the baby pressed up against your maternal, leaking bosoms in a “snuggly” sack from crying, you encounter these women and their unsolicited commentary and think, “Oh go back home and finish that book and have a pedicure for me. “ “And shut up.” Of course, I never actually said that, but I wanted to. When the highlight of your week is leaving your husband home with the kids so you can drive around town aimlessly for an hour with the radio at full volume, college applications are as far from your mind as making new discoveries related to quantum physics. Sadly (or perhaps, happily), driving around in circles while listening to Prince and the Revolution felt like an actual vacation. Really. Had I been sent off to a hotel for a massage, an uninterrupted night’s sleep and room service, I would have self-imploded. I’m certain of it.

sizes have surpassed mine, and I am visiting institutions of higher learning with a daughter who just yesterday was fashioning clothes for her Barbie dolls out of my Kotex panty liners. When I first laid eyes on her father, I was 17 years and a whopping 10 months old. We didn’t become a real “couple” until two years later, but I knew he was the one. So when I see the guy at Starbucks checking out Ophelia and she’s batting her eyelashes at him (the ones coated in my mascara), I can’t help thinking, “Please dear Lord, don’t let this be my future son-in-law. I am not yet ready for this.” Now, I am that woman with a few errant grey hairs (although if they start spreading to my eyebrows, I’m really not putting up with it). I generally see women with small children and diaper bags, and feel no deep sense of longing to turn back the clock, nor do I feel compelled to babble in “coochy coochy coo” baby talk. But on our last college excursion, we passed a woman on the sidewalk with a rosy-cheeked toddler in hand. And I wanted to say, “Wait! Stop! You won’t believe this, but tomorrow she’ll be living in the same college dorm as the man whose children she will bear. And she’ll be taking your mascara with her!” Cherish every tea party.

Smart meters add to health problems

I am one of many concerned citizens against wireless smart meters. I have had my sensitivity to electromagnetic frequency/radiation proved. In addition to the culmination of existing wireless technology, we are now forced with even greater amounts from wireless meters on every home, school and business in the state that Central Maine Power Co. services. They admittedly did not survey their customers prior to blanketing Maine. Anyone in the industry doing their due diligence would quickly learn of the health concern that has already erupted in many cities, entire states and foreign countries. My symptoms are real: bone/joint pain, nausea, disrupted sleep patterns, pain in temples into my neck around the carotid artery, memory lapse. It has grown worse since the installation of my neighbors’ meters that now stream through my house. For me it compromises my immune system. When the immune system is weakened disease takes advantage. Information from the meters to hubs travel the most direct and shortest path possible (as stated by a CMP spokesman, who also refused to admit – by walking away speechless when confronted with the reality – that the EMF/radiation travels through structures to get to the hubs). Call CMP. Request removal of your wireless smart meter. The most vulnerable groups to microwave radiation from wireless technologies are women, children and at-risk adults with an existing health condition. Julie Tupper South Portland

Paul LePage’s Cabinet of curiosities You can judge a man by the company he keeps, or, in the case of Gov.-Elect Paul LePage, by the people he appoints to his transition team. Amid the otherwise predictable business leaders and conservative politicians, LePage has larded his team with a bunch of tax-cappers, tea-partiers and constitutionalists – people who seem to be on board the LePage Express for purely ideological reasons. Though Maine voters have repeatedly rejected tax caps as a destructive The Universal way to limit government spending, LePage appointed tax-capper-inchief Tarren Bragdon, chief executive of the secretive Maine Heritage Policy Center, to head his transition team. Until the Maine Ethics Commission comes to its senses and realizes that MHPC is not a think-tank but a political action committee and forces it to disclose the source of its funding, Edgar Allen Beem no one involved with the center has any business anywhere near the levers of power in Augusta. LePage has also named Mary Adams, Miss Taxpayer Bill of Rights 2006, to his team. Adams tried to clean up TABOR after Carol Palesky’s own tax problems helped defeat it the first time. Some tea party types now debate whether Adams is too establishment, but, as one commenter on a tea party blog put it, “Mary Adams was Tea Party before Tea Party was Tea Party.” Then there’s Pete Harring, Maine’s answer to Joe the Plumber. Pete the Carpenter is the designated liberal

Beem provides little amusement Edgar Allen Beem’s column of Nov. 17-19 (“Let’s recap, shall we?…”) is not in the tradition of a mature political thinker confronted by adversity, as expressed in Mo Udall’s response to his primary election loss to Jimmy Carter in 1976: “The people have spoken…the bastards!” Udall’s lament accepts his opponents as sentient, if contrary, beings. Mr. Beem, in demeaning contrast, identifies the Republican, independent and (thinking conservative) Democratic voters of Nov. 2 as being “frightened and weak-minded,”

basher for the Maine ReFounders. And like Joe the Plumber, he is the embodiment of misinformed, misplaced, blue-collar anger. Pete is infamous for having compared liberals to Slinkys – useless, but fun to push down stairs. My favorite appointee, however, is Pembroke Schaeffer, Brunswick’s inveterate letter writer, testifier and all-around ultraconservative gadfly. Schaeffer, too, was a TABOR II promoter, which makes you wonder why, if he wanted a cranky tax-capper on his team, LePage didn’t just appoint Jack Wibby. The wild cards on the LePage team are the Bristol Boys – retirees Philip Congdon, Dana Dyer and Ralph Hassenpflug. At first I figured LePage must have a summer home in the Bristol area and these were just some of his grouchy cronies. But according to a poster on the Paint Maine Red website, Congdon, Dyer and Hassenpflug are active in the Constitutionalists of Maine, a take-America-back-to-the-founders group that meets regularly in Waldoboro. Dyer, in fact, travels around the country teaching Constitutionalist seminars based on the teachings of Glenn Beck’s guru, W. Cleon Skousen, a one-time chief of police in Salt Lake City. One of the prime Constitutionalist projects is to recruit “oath-keeper” sheriffs who will promise not to enforce laws they believe are unconstitutional, like gun control and mandatory vaccinations. What constitutionalists fail to understand is that the U.S. Constitution is a living, evolving document and that most Americans would prefer not to be dictated to by the Founding Fathers, long-dead white men who thought women shouldn’t vote and that it was OK to own black people. If you read Skousen’s writings, however, you will learn, among other fantastic things, that black people were happy being slaves. The odd man out in this motley crew is Alan Caron, founder of the anti-sprawl GrowSmart Maine and now

“misguided” “tool(s) of the rich,” “who voted with their emotions rather than their heads,” “in a predictable tidal wave (of progressive disaster).” Mr. Beem’s hissy fit is more in the royalist tradition of Scotty Reston (the dominant New York Times columnist of 30 years previous, into whose league Mr. Beem is unlikely to ascend) when he roundly castigated the American voters who voted for Ronald Reagan rather than Jimmy Carter. The current health-care law passed (barely) because the

director of Envision Maine, which bills itself as a nonpartisan think tank interested in informing public policy makers. I’m sure Caron has moderated his political views since I first knew him as a prison reform activist in the 1970s, but unless he has changed his spots completely, he seems to be the token progressive on Team LePage. At least LePage did not appoint Dr. Michael Coffman, the Bangor anti-smart growth, climate change denier who some tea-partiers actually hope the new governor will appoint as commissioner of the Department of Conservation. LePage is an acknowledged climate change skeptic, but should he appoint Coffman to anything, I will personally start the impeachment petition. The LePage transition team includes plenty of timber barons and real estate developers, so you can bet conservation will not be high on their agenda. But tea-partiers are already complaining about Caron and about the fact that two of LePage’s other team members – former state geologist Walter Anderson and former Department of Health and Human Services Commissioner Jane Sheehan – have served on The Nature Conservancy board. To tax-capping tea party property rights constitutionalists, popular conservation programs such as Lands for Maine’s Future are tree-hugger plots to funnel tax dollars to radical groups like The Nature Conservancy and Maine Audubon. So, folks, that’s what we’re up against. If tax-cappers, tea-partiers and constitutionalists are shaping the LePage policy agenda, we may be in for a long four years of damage control.

Out & About

Christmas music in several styles By Scott Andrews With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s now time to look ahead to the Christmas season. The top item in my personal list of shows to see this weekend is Christmas at the Cathedral, an annual production of the Choral Art Society. This wonderful concert has become a favorite of mine, a welcome respite from the over-commercialization of the holiday. Another annual event has received top marks from me in recent years: The 2010 edition of “Broadway at Good Theater” stars Sean Palmer, from “The Little Mermaid,” plus a collection of southern Maine artists. The show has a two-part focus: Christmas songs and Broadway favorites. Howard Fishman has been described as “one of New York’s most eclectically eccentric folk musicians,” and he’s got a new CD out. Whoops. Make that three new CDs. And he’ll be at One Longfellow Square in Portland this Saturday for a local release party.

Christmas at the Cathedral I’m one of those many people who are turned off by the tidal wave of over-hyped, in-your-face commercialism that obscures the meaning of the Christmas celebration. In recent years I’ve found a powerful antidote: The Choral Art Society’s annual Christmas at the Cathedral program exalts the traditional music of the Advent season, augmented by modern works that honor those traditions. I’m not alone in this thought. This has drawn many thousands over the years. Joined again by the Portland Brass Quintet, CAS will perform a cappella motets plus a variety of other traditional Christmas music. Guest organist will be Dan Moore. Each year’s edition includes CAS’ signature processional, “Personent Hodie,” a moving arrangement of a Renaissance melody for brass and organ that dates from 1582. Other items on the 2010 program are Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Magnificat” and

The Choral Art Society is the driving force behind Christmas at the Cathedral, an outstanding annual concert. Four performances are slated Dec. 4 and 5.

a trio of Appalachian Christmas carols. Other traditional selections include “Ave Maria,” “O Come All Ye Faithful” and “Unto Us a Child is Born.” Gustav Holst’s setting of Psalm 148 is an early 20th-century British classic, while Sir John Taverner’s “A Song for Athene” represents contemporary music of the U.K. The program concludes with Franz Gruber’s “Silent Night” performed by singers holding lighted candles and encircling the large hall. That’s another annual tradition. CAS numbers about 150 members in three sub-groups, all under the direction of University of Southern Maine School of Music professor Robert Russell. All singers are selected by audition; their goal is to enhance their personal musical experience and enrich the cultural life of southern Maine. Four concerts are planned this weekend at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception,

‘Broadway at Good Theater’ In recent years, “Broadway at Good Theater” has become one of my personal favorite musical shows of the Christmas season. Good Theater artistic director Brian Allen has a simple formula and it’s very effective. He brings in a major Broadway star and augments the show with a number of local singers in a program that focuses on Christmas music in the first half of the program and showcases the visiting star in the second. For 2010 Allen has engaged the charismatic Sean Palmer, who recently starred in “The Little Mermaid” as Prince Eric. He also played the male lead in “Saturday Night Fever.” Other Broadway appearances include “The Apple Tree,” “Fosse” and “Dream.” He is well known for playing the role of Marcus in the hit television series, “Sex and the City.” “Sean is a really handsome leading man with an amazing tenor voice,” says Allen.

“He’ll be showcasing his talents in a variety of styles and genres.” Allen says that “Her Voice,” from “The Little Mermaid,” will be one of Palmer’s show-stoppers. Other Broadway favorites include “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” from “Funny Girl,” and the title song from “The Sound of Music.” Good Theater’s Broadway star will be joined by Marva Pittman, Kelly Caufield, Lynne McGhee, Jennifer McLeod, Marie Dittmer, Deirdre Fulton, Grace Bradford and special guest David Goulet. Victoria Stubbs is the musical director and leader of the three-piece band. Christmas music of several genres will be performed. Mel Torme’s famous “Christmas Song” (also known as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”) epitomizes the smooth crooners of the 1940s, “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” is 1950s-1960s country and rock, and “Ave Maria” is a standout of the timeless sacred style. Catch “Broadway at Good Theater” this weekend at the St. Lawrence Arts Center, 76 Congress St. (top of Munjoy Hill) with performances Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 4 at 3 and 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 5 at 2 p.m. Call 885-5883.

Howard Fishman

From the streets of New Orleans to the best venues in New York: That’s the quick summary of the career of Howard Fishman, a versatile singer, songwriter, guitarist and band leader. In recent years, Fishman has been a fixture of the New York club scene, including a nine-month run in the Algonquin Room. He boasts a gravelly voice and sings in a disarmingly low-key style using material he draws from many sources. And he’s ventured far from New York, bookending the country with gigs in southern California to mid-coast Maine. Ever evolving and increasingly difficult to pigeonhole, Fishman filters a deep passion for New Orleans soul, gritty pop, fervent gospel, open-hearted country and experimental jazz. Fishman’s prime attraction is his own creativity. And that has been on a marathon recently. After releasing six CDs between 1999 and 2007, Fishman has written, recorded and released no fewer than three albums of his own material in 2010. On Saturday he’ll appear at one of Portland’s top venues, One Longfellow Square, in a CD release party. For the past couple of days I’ve been playing the third CD from the current trilogy. It’s titled “The World Will Be Different,” and it features an intensely personal collection of songs. Most of these are set in Brooklyn and all reflecting on the breakup of a passionate relationship. Clearly he understands how to tell a story dramatically. In addition to performing music – he’s on the road much of the year – Fishman is also a theatrical actor, director and scholar who specializes in the works of pioneering American playwright Eugene O’Neill. Howard Fishman appears at 8 p.m. Dec. 4 at One Longfellow Square, corner of Congress and State in the Portland Arts District. Call 761-1757.

from page 1 at the 2009 tax rate of $14.70 per $1,000 of assessed value. City Assessor Elizabeth Sawyer defended her 2009 assessment, which valued the properties at nearly $252.9 million, as “fair and reasonable.” Sawyer said the 2009 assessment is substantially lower that the 2006 assessment of more than $268.8 million. “Reductions occurred citywide on land and buildings in 2009,” Sawyer said via e-mail. “And the Filene’s building value was reduced substantially to reflect the long-term vacancy.” Goldberg said GGP is confident the current appeal will be more successful than the

Zoning from page 1 mentation Committee to evaluate the zoning options for the property. “People in Green Acres had reasonable belief it would remain open space,” Councilor Richard Sullivan said. “The state took that property with eminent domain – I had a lot of heartburn on that. Taking it by eminent domain and then selling it for a profit – if they didn’t need it, they shouldn’t have taken it.” Councilor Jessica Holbrook agreed that the state taking the property from a private citizen back when the Scarborough Con-

School Board from page 1 tion, we asked for a defined process then, and we still don’t have one,”Carter said. “The board certainly would be happy to be part of the process once it’s defined.” City Manager Jim Gailey said councilors will review applications from candidates at a Dec. 13 workshop, with the aim of appointing someone by Dec. 20. The city began advertising for the open school board seat about two weeks ago, setting a Nov. 25 deadline for letters of interest to the city clerk. City Clerk Sue Mooney said she has

previous attempt, which took three years to reach a conclusion. “We feel we have a stronger case,” he said. “And we feel it would be better received and perhaps better understood this time around.” The Board of Assessment Review met in November to schedule the appeal. GGP must submit its alternative assessment to the city by Dec. 31. The city will have 60 days to review GGP’s assessment and respond. Then, GGP will have 45 days to prepare a rebuttal. Three days of hearings are tentatively scheduled to begin on April 26, 2011. When GGP appealed its 2006 assess-

ment, the board voted unanimously to uphold the city’s assessment. GGP, which bought the Maine Mall and 11 outlying properties in 2003 for $270 million, appealed the ruling to the Maine Board of Property Tax Review, which deliberated for three hours before voting unanimously in the city’s favor. Although the city won the ruling and kept nearly $920,000 in disputed tax revenue, the victory came at a cost: Finance Director Greg L’Heureux said the city paid $76,000 in outside attorney and consulting fees. According to its website, the company’s portfolio includes approximately 200 million square feet of retail space and more than 24,000 retail stores, about half of which are in the 50 most populated U.S. markets, with 37 malls in the top U.S.

metro areas. The company voluntarily sought Ch. 11 bankruptcy protection in April 2009 and underwent a restructuring that included spinning off some business. GGP announced on Nov. 9 it had successfully emerged from Ch. 11 by consensually restructuring about $15 billion of debt, recapitalizing with $6.8 billion in new equity, paying all creditor claims in full and achieving “substantial” recovery for equity holders. The spin-off company, The Howard Hughes Corp., is now a stand-alone developer and operator of master-planned communities and long-term mixed-use properties.

to repair the road enough to adopt it as a public way. The repairs will initially be paid for by the town, but the road association will pay the town back for all the repairs. The town will also pay off a Small Business Association loan the association took out in the mid-1990s to repair damage to the road and the association will pay the town back over 15 years. As long as it is approved in the 2012 budget, the town will spend $243,400 and, in doing so, gain easement access to town owned property near the road.

nector was built meant it should not now be able to turn around and sell it. “Call your congressmen, your representatives,” Holbrook said. “Scream as loud as you can. The state should never profit from property taken by eminent domain.” Councilors were careful to explain that this was not a judgment against Maine Eye Center, and encouraged the Portland business to consider other available and appropriately zoned properties in Scarborough. “I don’t think (this) fits with the neighborhood,” Councilor Karen D’Andrea said. “But I hope Maine Eye comes to Scarborough. I hope they become the first new tenant at Haigis Parkway.” In other business, the council approved

an agreement between the town and the residents of Cranberry Pines, where the town will loan the road association funds to repair the road enough that it will be adopted as a town road. Councilors also heard an update to the Running Hill Road study. Cranberry Pines After a meeting Tuesday evening, where residents of West Beech Ridge Road discussed concerns about future connectivity of Beech Ridge and Cranberry Pines roads, the council voted 6-1 Wednesday, with Councilor Jessica Holbrook opposed,

received two letters: one from past candidate Tappan Fitzgerald and another from Burton Edwards, a former board member and current part-time employee of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. However, Edwards on Thursday said he is withdrawing from consideration because city employees are prohibited from holding elected office in South Portland. “I wasn’t sure who was going to put their name forward,” he said. “I just wanted to make sure somebody did. And I was concerned with who might.” Fitzgerald ran for the District 5 seat in 2009 and received more than 4,100 votes, but was defeated by Livingston

by 13 votes. He is the community relations manager at Hannaford Bros. Co., where he has worked for 25 years. The 42-year-old has two children in public schools and has been a member of the Skillin Parent Teacher Association for about 10 years. He also served on the school redistricting committee. Fitzgerald said he seeks the opportunity to help the district in the coming years, which he expects will be challenging. With a $41.5 million bond recently passed by voters to renovate the high school and a potential middle school consolidation on the horizon, Fitzgerald

said he expects there will be more pressure to keep operating costs – and the tax rate – low. “I really think the budget process (the board) is about to get into is going to be one of the most aggressive and most examined budget processes that the South Portland School Department has ever gone through,” he said, noting the need for “equitable and sound” decisions.

Smart meters from page 1 industries can be,” Rep. Andrea Boland, D-Sanford, said during the meeting. Boland introduced legislation last year that would have put warning labels on cellular telephones, which use the same type of frequencies as smart meters. Her cell phone legislation failed. “There was only one Mainer who was not in the industry who testified against the warning labels,” Boland said. “That was (Maine Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director) Dr. Dora Anne Mills. I’m concerned money has crept into considerations in government.” The Maine CDC has released several documents defending the safety of smart meters, including a “frequently asked questions” pamphlet released Nov. 29 that acknowledges the lack of long-term studies proving the safety of the technology, but also says reviews of the research “pointed to no consistent or convincing evidence to support a concern for health effects related to the use of (radio frequency) in the range of frequencies and power used by smart meters.” Boland said legislators were uninformed about the potential risks when they voted to allow the smart meters. In addition to Boland, speakers from more than 15 communities and two other states spoke out against the meters, many asking CMP for a formal opt-out provision that would offer a choice about having the meters installed. “We’re in a position (where) we’re forced to buy product we don’t want,” said Scarborough resident Elisa BoxerCook, a critic of the wireless meters who has organized opposition and filed a formal complaint with the PUC. “We’re asking CMP to respect our concerns, to compromise with an opt-out solution. We think this is reasonable.”

said smart meters reduced her ability to concentrate, made her agitated and caused headaches. “I’m not being paid to be here. I’m not a scientist. But I’m living proof — smart meters installed on my house made me sick,” she said. “I really do not believe the electric companies are trying to hurt people, but they’re making a terrible mistake.” Several local doctors also spoke out against the meters. “There are very few of us who are informed in any way about any of this,” Dr. Magili Quinn, a family practice doctor in Falmouth, said. Quinn said she contacted her stepson’s cardiologist to ask if his pacemaker would be affected by the meters and was told to call the manufacturer. “The specialists I rely on don’t even have any answers.” Monday’s forum came after the Town Council passed a resolution on Oct. 20 asking CMP to wait 90 days before installing the wireless meters on customers’ homes and businesses. The towns of Cape Elizabeth and Sanford subsequently passed similar moratoriums. “You should have to prove it’s safe first before you expose the public in massive experiment,” Dr. Sean McCloy, a family practice physician from Portland, said Monday. Once the smart grid is fully installed, which is scheduled for early 2012, the meters will allow customers to view their electricity usage in real time and make decisions about turning off appliances during peak hours to save money. CMP received $96 million in stimulus funding to support the grid upgrade and has estimated it will save a matching amount by eliminating the need for meter readers. “We are moving from the 19th to the 21st century,” CMP spokesman John Carroll said. “This is a step forward for our company and something that’s very good for Maine and our customers.”

“If the PUC said it was appropriate to require an opt-out, we would have to do that,” Carroll said after the forum.

While CMP agreed to honor Scarborough’s requested installation delay until after the public forum, residents in Cape Elizabeth reported the company has moved forward with the installation despite the town’s request. “Where’s the choice to use or not use the technology? Cape Elizabeth voted no. You said ‘we’re doing it anyway,’” McCloy said. Ann Kaplan, a Cape Elizabeth resident, filed a letter in support of Boxer-Cook’s PUC complaint recently after she arrived home to find “a CMP employee with a box under his arm heading to my electric meter.” Kaplan said she asked the employee if he was aware of the Town Council’s moratorium and he said that he was, but that he was going ahead with the installation anyway. “We have certainly said to anyone who’s ever asked us if we’re stopping installation in Cape Elizabeth, we’re not,” Carroll said Monday. “If Cape Elizabeth councilors are asking for response, we’ve given it.” Carroll indicated after the meeting Monday that he was not sure if CMP would continue to honor Scarborough’s moratorium now that the council-requested forum has happened. The PUC has not decided whether to investigate or dismiss two complaints about the meters brought against CMP by customers in Scarborough. CMP has asked the regulatory agency to dismiss both complaints. Boxer-Cook’s complaint cites concerns by doctors that those with sensitivity to the radiation the meters emit should be allowed to opt out of having the meters installed. Currently, there is no formal opt-out provision.

Elizabeth Kelley, founder of the Electromagnetic Safety Alliance, who spoke last week at a discussion of radio frequency radiation and smart meters in San Francisco, argued against the meters on Monday.

“At the conference in San Francisco, I had doctors come up after and ask for more information,” she said. “They said, ‘We can treat the symptoms, but we need to treat the cause.’”

Kelley called for more regulation of the radiation, citing strict regulations in Europe on exposing children to these kinds of radio frequencies.

“This grid represents the largest technology build-out in history,” Kelley said. “No federal agency is really looking after this.”

CMP-hired scientists also presented lengthy and technical explanations of the meters’ safety, comparing the frequencies to that of cellular and cordless phones. Dr. Yakov Shkolnikov, an engineer with California-based Exponent Consulting, said at peak radiation exposure, the meters are 1/1,000th of a cell phone and 50 percent of a common wireless Internet router.

The scientists also explained that the meters had lower average frequencies than many other common devices and that, even when a neighborhood is full of them, the devices would not be able to fire all at once.

“The meters share a frequency,” Shkolnikov said. “Only one can talk at a time.” A second meeting to discuss cyber security and claims about smart meter fire risks is expected to be scheduled. Emily Parkhurst can be reached at 781-3661 ext. 125 or eparkhurst@theforecaster.net
