Grouse Days

V. Paul Reynolds Ahhh, October. Frosty mornings and flaming foliage. Grouse days are upon us. In Maine, next to whitetail deer, there is no other game species that draws as much attention in autumn from hunters, residents and nonresidents alike. Deservedly. Can you think of any other game bird that so challenges a gun dog and a shooter? The bird man himself, John James Audubon, held the grouse-asgame-bird in reverence: “Sometimes, when these birds are found on the side of a steep hill, the moment they start, they dive towards the foot of the declivity, take a turn, and fly off in a direction so different from the one expected, that unless the sportsman is aware of the trick, he may not see them again that day.”

There can be no doubt, either, that our fondness for this fall game bird has something to do with its sweet flesh. They eat well.There is only one way to prepare and cook grouse, no matter what you hear or read in cook books. Cut up the breast in strips a half inch thick. Lightly sautee them in an iron skillet with butter and garnish with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Don’t overcook. Sportsmen have been known to parboil a partridge breast in a bean pot or smother the overcooked breast with a creamy sherry sauce. This is a sacrilege, a culinary crime of the first order. Drown a woodcock breast in the bean pot if you must, but grouse richly deserve the respect reflected in the cooking adage that less is more. There is an additional reason why the grouse is the hallowed game bird, why the hunt for ruffed grouse has been the subject of so much attention over the years from sporting artists and legendary outdoor writers. It is the time of year, October, when fall foliage is a feast

for the eyes and the air is clear and cool in popple swamps and alder swales. Then there is, for many of us, the main reason to be there picking our way through the thornapples, alder tangles and wire birches, the gun dog: the Setters, the Pointers, the Britts and the German Short Hairs. It is a rare upland bird hunter who doesn’t nurture and treasure a special relationship with his gun dog. Legendary grouse writer Corey Ford captures man’s romance with his gun dog in “The Road to Tinkhamtown. The old man in the story spends his final hours reliving his days in the grouse covers with his beloved Shad. “...Shad was standing motionless. The white fan of his tail was lifted a little and his backline was level, the neck craned forward, one foreleg cocked. His flanks were trembling with the nearness of the grouse, and a thin skein of drool hung from his jowels. The dog did not move as he approached, but the brown eyes rolled back until their whites showed, looking for him. “Steady boy,” he called. His throat

Sally of Seboeis as a pup with me at camp, circa 2000. was tight , the way it always got when Shad was on point, and he had to swallow hard. “Steady, I’m coming.” This time of year, especially this time of year, memories of my “Shad” - a soft-haired English Setter named Sally of Seboeis - take up residence in my daydreams. She was far from a “finished” gun dog, but she wanted to please and took to the hunt with enthusiasm and

energy. As a youngster she launched her gundog career at a wonderful pheasant preserve in New Brunswick and, later, the cornfields of South Dakota. Regrettably now, we didn’t hunt her as much as she deserved, but there were some wonderful days in Maine woodcock and grouse covers. Grouse days are always good, but never quite the same when your favorite gun dog can’t be with

you. The author is editor of the Northwoods Sporting Journal. He is also a Maine Guide, co-host of a weekly radio program “Maine Outdoors.” His e-mail address is paul@ . He has two books “A Maine Deer Hunter’s Logbook” and his latest, “Backtrack.” n

ABC Quilt Project

The Village Scrappers of Livermore have taken on a portion of the ABC Quilt project. Connie Warren has been the Chairperson for entire state for many years. Through discussions with Connie and our involvement with the project since 1995 we offered to assist with quilt distribution in the western part of Maine. The area includes Hospitals in

Farmington, Rumford and Lewiston. We are also covering Fire & Rescue for Jay, Livermore Falls, Fayette and Livermore. This year we delivered over 70 quilts to these facilities. Quilts and blankets were made for anyone from a new born to a teenager. The ABC Quilts Project originally was formed in 1988, to provide quilts for babies

who were abandoned due to substance abuse or HIV/Aids infections. The program has evolved to include any baby or child in need. We give from the heart out of a generosity of spirit. The giving is without expectation of return. Although each quilt is personally signed by the maker with the message “Love and Comfort to you from…” there is

Nutrition Advice for Those With Lyme Disease Jodi Cornelio

Lyme disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Proper Nutrition Can Help You Feel Better We have all heard the horror story of Lyme disease and hopefully we are all taking preventative precautions to avoid ticks. If you have had an unfortunate run in with a tick and have be affected by this disease there are specific nutritional precautions that you can take to help you feel better and protect and enhance your immune system. Simply put, Lyme disease is a bacterium that impacts your immune system, if caught early

enough it can be destroyed with antibiotics and proper nutrition can help. Here are some simple nutrition steps to focus on if diagnosed with Lyme disease. Avoid the following foods: Glutens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Some bacteria thrive on glutens. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, barley, some processed oats and any food made with these grains. Wheat-based flours, pasta, couscous, bread, flour tortillas, muffins, cereal, crackers, beer, some oats and most pastries commonly contain gluten. Some unexpected foods containing gluten are broths, can soups, bouillon cubes, breadcrumbs, croutons, fried foods, imitation fish, lunch meats, hot dogs, malt, matzo, modified

food starch, some seasonings, some salad dressing, soy sauce, pasta. There are many additives that have gluten in them as well. Beware of sauces, gravies and seasoned products and basically foods that are in cans or packages. It is always beneficial to check the label or ingredient list on foods before eating them. The label â&#x20AC;&#x153;wheat-freeâ&#x20AC;? does not always mean that the foods are gluten free. If there are any concerns or questions, contact the manufacturer to be positive that there is no gluten in the food items. While pure oats are gluten free, many commercially processed oats have been contaminated by wheat products containing gluten. It is often recommended to avoid oats if gluten-free eating is required. Sugars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; minimize or avoid sugars especially if on an antibiotic drug. Sugars can hurt good bacteriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the body and breed bad bacteriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. When reading food labels look for words ending in OSE such as sucralose and high fructose corn syrup. Avoid artificial sweeteners as they are just plain not wise choices and, our bod-

ies were not designed to digest these types of manufactured products. Dairy products â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Milk and cheeses and yogurt contain lactose and some bacteria thrive

so you may choose to stay on the safe side and take an acidophilus supplement or a pro-biotic supplement that contains 10 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 25 billion CFU s. Alcohol â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A drink a

on that too. If taking an antibiotic the calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc found in these foods and in calcium enrich juices and vitamins can bind to the antibiotic and make it less effective. Read the label or ask your pharmacist for a list when in doubt. Yogurt can fool us. When on an antibiotic we are coached to eat yogurt to avoid yeast infections or other digestive upsets.

day or one glass of wine may be good for the heart and I hate to be the barer of bad news but the fact is alcohol is converted to sugar in the body and it simply not good at building the immune system in this case. Doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Now that I have taken all the fun out of foods, what can you eat? The answer is. You can eat whole foods in their natural state. Prepare your own food as much as possible. Fresh or frozen vegetables, all meats and good fats like olive oil. Examples of foods to eat are; beans, seeds

and nuts in their natural, unprocessed form, fresh eggs, fresh red meats, fish and poultry (not breaded, batter-coated or marinated), all fruits and vegetables. Gluten free flours are; Amaranth, Arrowroot, Buckwheat, Corn and cornmeal, Flax, Rice flour, Potato flour, Hominy, Millet, Quinoa... And as always get plenty of rest, drink plenty of water, exercise everyday moderately and try to avoid stress. Yoga is a good outlet and great for the nervous and immune system. Live Long, Live well.

Email Flows

John McDonald

The flow of e-mails over the transom here at Storyteller Central has slowed a bit now that our summer visitors‚ (sometimes known affectionately in town as “summer complaints) have packed up and gone home. But people from away are still sending e-mails to me, hoping get answers to one question or another. For example Peter from Virginia e-mailed: “John, We’ve been staying a few weeks in a nice cottage on the grounds of a resort on the coast. While here we first want you to know how much we enjoyed reading your column in the weekly newspaper. After reading a few of your pieces we thought you’d probably be able to answer a question for us. Several tourist brochures we’ve seen boast that Maine is a fourseason resort‚ yet people we’ve met and talked to,

people who live here yearround chuckle, at the idea. Who’s right? Is Maine a four-season resort or isn’t it?” Thanks for the e-mail Peter. I think I’ve seen some of those brochures that boast of our mythical four seasons‚ but after living year-round in Maine for as long as I have I only wonder where these people learned to count. Here in the USA we have freedom of speech and that freedom even extends to our tourist promotion people. You can say - for tourist promotion purposes - that Maine has four seasons. But in fairness you should quickly mention that it is possible to get snowed on in at least three maybe even four of thoe seasons. Then, of course, there’s “mud season,” for which no use has yet to be found. I can hear some of you now: “John, are you seri-

ous? Snow in four out of four seasons?” Listen, here in Maine

many of us haven’t trusted the weather ever since the infamous winter of 1816, a year still known in these parts as “The year without a summer.” “Are you serious, John, 1816? It’s time to give it a rest - 1816 was over 185 years ago!” I hear some of you saying. Yes it was a while ago, but some of us still enjoy talking about it Here in Maine we learn in history about the year 1816 and how here in the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada there was a killing frost and bad snow storms in all twelve months. Trying to explain the abnormal weather some quacks‚ of the time - yes, they had quacks back then, too - tried to blame the cold weather on poor Ben Franklin and his slick new invention, the light-

ening rod, that was being installed on top of barns and houses all over the place. As these quacks saw it, lightening was made up of intense heat, Ben’s new invention was interfering with the life of lightening, therefore Ben and Ben alone was most likely responsible for all the heat being lost. Later, when we learned a little more about this crazy planet, it was thought that the cold weather - more than likely - was caused by a number of large volcanic eruptions that occurred on the other side of the world in 1814-1815 in places like the Philippines and Indonesia. I know it’s a longwinded answer to a simple question, Peter, but sometimes there’s no way around it. In a related e-mail, Will

from Newport writes: “John, we’ve just retired to Maine and will be spending our first fall here. What do people around here do in the fall?” Thanks for the e-mail, Will. Most new arrivals like you spend a lot of time in early fall wondering things like: What ever happened to summer? Once you’ve more or less dealt with that question you can get down to doing what you probably should have been doing in the first place: Wondering if you’ve done everything necessary to get ready for winter, which is bearing down on our state like a runaway freight train. Hope you have a nice fall and are all ready when the first snow arrives, which will most likely be sooner than we think. n

Genealogy Tourism Becoming Increasingly Popular By Victor Block Planning a visit to Poland, where his ancestors had lived, Bernard Janicki went online and tracked down the parish priest in the village where his mother had been born. When he arrived, the pastor helped him find church records that traced his grandfather’s lineage to 1819, and the maternal side of his family back to 1751. Thus he became one of an increasing number of people who have made genealogy tourism – combining travel with research to trace their family roots -- one of the fastest growing segments of the tourism industry. The wealth of information available online is a good place to begin a trip down memory lane. A few strokes on a computer keyboard can unearth census records, ship passenger lists, immigration documents and a treasure trove of other data. The National Archives contains a mother lode of information. The Family History Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the world’s largest depository, with records from over 100 countries., which claims the title of world’s largest online resource for family history information, includes billions of historical records on its websites. But no amount of knowledge can compete with the thrill of making personal contact with relatives you might not have known exist, or visiting places where your forebears lived and your family roots were planted. Tour companies offer both organized group trips and individual visits to states and countries where birth, marriage, death and other sources of information await discovery. There even are genealogy cruises for people who prefer to combine a learning experience with the opportunity to take to the high seas. Family Tree Tours takes small groups of travelers to Germany, Poland and Ireland. The company obtains research information from

When not poring over records or seated before a computer, roots researchers spend free time enjoying extra-curricular activities like attending a rehearsal of the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir and touring the magnificent Temple Square Garden, which sprawls across 35 acres. Among tour companies that offer research visits to Salt Lake City are Ancestor Seekers (ancestorseekers.

Missing Flag Creating Mystery at Turner Highlands There has been an on going mystery through out the summer at Turner Highlands golf course. Earlier this year a flag from the Turner Highlands disappeared. The flag has since been spotted at various places, often with popular PGA golfers and even NBC's Today Show host Matt Lauer. Each May the Turner Highlands club holds a tournament to raise money for a scholarship fund created for young members that are continuing they're education beyond high school. A few days after the scholarship tournament last May, a red flag from the 17th hole disappeared. Course co-owner George Chiasson was not happy, and at the time had put the word out he would like who ever took the flag to return it, or at least return the pole it was hanging from. Then a few weeks after the red Turner Highlands flag disappeared, the flag was spotted, on Facebook. In early June the flag appeared on Facebook with its own page, listed as 'Turnah Flag'. A photo with a post by the 'Turnah Flag' stated, “My last day at work. I quit a few weeks ago and made my escape. I'm off to find new adventures. Good bye Turner Highlands.” And the mystery began. Word began to circulate around the course of the missing Red Flag. There were reports circulating

that a red flag was spotted in a black convertible at the Highlands around that time. The course owners were quizzed daily on who had the flag, but they had no answers. Chiasson just continued to say he wanted his flag stick back. Then one of the club members reportedly had contact with the Turnah Flag on Facebook. She was told the Flag was going to return eventually in time for the next Scholarship Tournament, with hopes of raising money for the scholarship fund. Of course the person making contact with the flag became a 'suspect'. She has denied having any knowledge of the flag's where abouts, but remains a 'person of interest'. There have been no other direct communications reported with 'Turnah Flag'. The flag has not responded to my efforts to talk. Course co-owner Donna Chiasson has not been able to determine the flag's identity, but hears the rumors and suspects names. “I have been asked a hundred times this summer, who has the flag, but I really don't know,” she told me by phone last week. “I have heard rumors and it has been fun, but nobody really knows for certain. There have been a few people that were strongly rumored, but just as someone appears to be the person, somebody else becomes a suspect. Maybe one day we will

know for sure.” The Turnah Flag went on to have a busy summer by posting photos and comments from many events and places through out the country. First came photos from the Travelers Championship PGA event that took place in Hartford, CT, in late June. There were several photos posted from the event, including with popular PGA golfers including Keegan Bradley and Stewart Cink, who were also among the golfers that signed the flag. Then came a report the flag was on a road trip and a photo taken with NBC Today Show host Matt Lauer was posted. Next came photos from an Atlanta Braves game at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA. As attention grew for the flag, rumors persisted at the course. Reports of the flag being spotted were circulating, from being seen in a black convertible to one report of the flag pulling out of the Highlands on a Harley Davidson. Photos would begin to appear with the flag spotted at various homes around the course, with denials all around on who was hosting the flag. “It's not me,” was the answer to many accusations. Nobody could be pinned down, as each time somebody was suspected, the flag would appear somewhere else. The flag has been photographed at events ranging from a Steelers game

NBC Today Show host Matt Lauer holds the “Turnah Flag.” in Pittsburgh, PA to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park in Boston and recently at a Blue Angels air show. It has been seen on the local news and even a local news broadcast in Hartford, Connecticut. While at the Bridgestone Invitational PGA event in Akron, Ohio last August it was photographed with more golfers including Patrick Reed and 3 time PGA Major Champion Padraig Harrington, who also signed it.

Through out the summer the flag was photographed with many other golfers including British Open winner Zach Johnson, 21 time PGA Champion Davis Love, III, 34 time PGA winner VJ Singh and more. The flag is full of signatures from golf greats. The golfers reported to have signed the flag have combined to win well over 100 PGA events. To this day, despite reports of sightings, many rumors and accusations of

who has the flag, nobody has confirmed or have been proven to have it. The course owners report there are four or five good suspects, but each of them have repeatedly denied being involved. So the Turnah Flag mystery continues. In fact the latest post on the Flag's Facebook page shows the flag on the Downeaster Train going on yet another road trip. Stay tuned to see where the flag ends up next!n

Physical Therapy Dept. Offers New Services Two Franklin Memorial Hospital (FMH) physical therapists, Rebecca Gagnon-Pillsbury, MSPT, ATC, CLT; and Heather Patterson, PT; recently completed an extensive threeday course in Pelvic Health Physical Therapy, level 1, offered by the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association. As a result, they are accepting referrals from primary care providers to treat female patients who have pelvic floor disorders. Through the normal movement and stresses associated with daily living, a woman’s pelvic floor can weaken or carry undue stress, resulting in urinary or bowel urgency, incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, back pain, or pain with intercourse. Physical therapy can break into those dysfunctional cycles through education, behavior modification, and exercises to facilitate normal coordination

of pelvic floor muscles. Patients seeking treatment will have an initial evaluation that includes an extensive history interview, examination of the spine and lower extremities, biofeedback assessment of the pelvic floor muscles and abdominal muscles, an internal pelvic floor assessment, and education and initiation of a home program of exercises. “We are very excited to have our physical therapy department add the treatment of pelvic floor disorders to the services we provide,” said Susan Loughrey, FMH interim director of physical rehabilitation & sports medicine. “Many women suffer from urgency, urinary and stress incontinence, back pain, and pelvic pain that can have a great impact on their lives. A woman who suffers from these symptoms should talk to her doctor about it; incontinence can be treated.”

Patterson and GagnonPillsbury plan to also complete levels 2 and 3 offered by the Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association, which will result in a Certificate of Achievement in Pelvic Physical Therapy (CAPP). The CAPP is awarded to physical therapists who complete three courses of training in pelvic physical therapy, pass written and clinical testing requirements at each level, and successfully complete a written case report. Other women’s health services offered by the FMH Physical Therapy department include: treatment for back pain related to pregnancy and post-partum issues; lymphedema; postoperative breast care; treatment of lower back pain; and osteoporosis.

Traveling into the Back Country of Central Maine During Colonial Times

Submitted byt Dale Potter-Clark Unlike today, in 1770 there were no roads from southern New England into central Maine, or from Hallowell towards Winthrop and Farmington. The Kennebec River and Cobbosseeconte waterway was utilized because all that even resembled a road were some blazed trails left by the earliest trappers and scouts. So, how did our forefathers manage to get to their new homeland in the “back country”, and what were some of the challenges they faced? In the Colonial era cargo schooners – called “wood coasters” - were the quickest and cheapest route from southeastern

Massachusetts and Portsmouth towards the central Maine frontier. During the warmer months dozens of them plied the coastal waters carrying country goods to and from those ports to Maine – one being Hallowell. Those vessels were the work horses for coastal trade and carried everything from timber and coal to bricks, general cargo, or loads of hay. They also provided cheap transport for aspiring pioneers. With good weather and favorable winds midcoast Maine was a day’s sail away from Boston for a fare of about $2.00 - about a week’s wages. Most often the men folk went ahead first to pave the way and to prepare

primitive homes for their wives and children. They sailed to Phippsburg, and then up the Kennebec River to the head of tide at Hallowell. From there most of them stopped at Fort Western to purchase provisions, familiarize themselves with the area and to talk to local people about what they might encounter on the journey ahead. Fully equipped with tools and whatever provisions they needed, they may have hired someone with an ox cart to haul their belongings. The trail into the backcountry was still rough and rugged at that time, so more than likely they rigged up some kind of primitive carriers and did their own

Early settlers coming from southern New England traveled down east by “wood coaster” to Phippsburg, then up the Kennebec River to Hallowell.

Pioneers stopped by General Howard’s store at Fort Western to purchase supplies they needed, and to familiarize themselves with the area before proceeding into the backcountry.

lugging. From Hallowell they proceeded westward towards no man’s land. Some newcomers had the benefit of following a marked trail, which was created sometime around 1766. It was a primitive pathway on which a few bushes had been cleared and a line of trees blazed, and it led to the more populated southern section of Pondtown (Winthrop). In the northern part of Pondtown (Readfield) it is reasonable to say another trail would have been used – the same one traveled by Indians from Bombahook (Hallowell) towards the Sandy River. They climbed steep hills, forded streams and inched their way through dense forest until they reached their destination. There was no semblance of civilization when they stopped several miles west of the Kennebec River. The trail from Hallowell to northern Pondtown was described as a “tortuous road” by someone who used that route

in 1799. Imagine what it must have been like in 1770 when the earliest adventurers passed through. It was around this time that geographer Thomas Prentiss wrote of the mid Maine backcountry: “When a traveler attains the summit of a hill, the whole around him appears like an ocean of woods, swelled and depressed in its surface like the great ocean itself.” The countryside was completely unsettled, and populated with animals such as bear, wolves, fishers and wildcats. The pioneers were constantly vigilant for any signs of marauding Indians – or worse yet - attacks. No one had warned them about the terrible onslaught of the tiny but virulent black flies and mosquitoes. The trekkers had no immunity to the venom of black flies. Their eyes swelled shut and the insects literally became embedded in their swollen, inflamed skin. It would be so interest-

ing to hear the settler’s stories first hand, but those opportunities passed long ago. So, to put their trek into perspective just imagine hiking into the wilds of Baxter State Park with no firsthand knowledge of the area, without a map, compass, insect repellant or sufficient shoes and clothing. Add to that vision with all of your worldly possessions in tow. Those men and women were truly courageous, adventuresome and eager for a new start. Those of us who live in beautiful Central Maine today can thank them for their sacrifices and for paving the way into the Central Maine back country.

PLAN and GROW your business with monthly Tips on various subjects such as Taxes, Human Resources, and Marketing.

Union Laws Apply to Non-Union Workplaces:

Non-solicitation and non-distribution policies even where there is no union Submitted by Rebecca Webber No union? Your business still needs to pay attention to the National Labor Relations Act. The issue getting a lot of attention is facebook messages and what can be done about them when employees slam their bosses or employer’s business but there are other issues too, and those apply to non-unionized workplaces as well as places with unions. The Supreme Court has long held that the right of employees to communicate with one another regarding self-organization at the job site is protected by Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. Section 7 is the part of the National Labor Relations Act (“NLRA”) that gives employees the right to self-organization. This part of the NLRA applies to non-unionized

workplaces as well as places with unions. Section 8 is the portion of the NLRA that makes it illegal to interfere with the rights set out in Section 7 and describes what are called “unfair labor practices.” Prohibiting union solicitation but allowing other types of solicitation would be called an unfair labor practice. The right to communicate set out in Section 7 encompasses the right to distribute union literature. The Court has affirmed this right in a variety of settings. See, e.g., Beth Israel Hosp. v. NLRB, 437 U.S. 483, 507 (1978) (holding that a hospital violates Section 8(a)(1) by preventing an employee from distributing union materials “during nonworking time in nonworking areas, where the facility has not justified the prohibition as necessary to avoid dis-

ruption of health-care operations or disturbance of the patients”). Limits on distribution policies apply to email as well. An employer may not single out union-related messages for harsher treatment, whether explicitly in its policy or by enforcing a policy only against union communications. For example, if an employer allows employees to send personal messages using company email, it must allow them to send union-related email messages. Similarly, an employer that allows employees to solicit coworkers on behalf of various organizations may not prohibit messages soliciting on behalf of a union. Limits imposed with a union in mind will need to be evaluated in terms of all the non-union solicitation and distribution that often takes place in any workplace. For ex-

ample, as one court noted, the employer, a hospital, “had permitted use of the cafeteria for other types of solicitation, including fund drives, which, if not to be equated with union solicitation in terms of potential for generating controversy, at least indicates that the hospital regarded the cafeteria as sufficiently commodious to admit solicitation and distribution without disruption.” Beth Israel Hosp. v. N.L.R.B., 437 U.S. at 502-03. The Court did acknowledge that union activity was recognized as possibly generating behavior that was “undesirable in the hospital's cafeteria,” but held that there were “less restrictive means of regulating organizational activity” that were more focused on the precise harm to be avoided. In other words, if the concern is noise, limit noise, but not all union gatherings; if the concern is crowding, limit meetings to less crowded times rather than impose a blanket prohibition. In another case, the employer allowed a wide variety of solicitations – without discipline – including solicitations at work stations for Girl Scout cookies, ‘beach balm’ suntan lotion, March of Dimes, United Way, Secretary’s Day, and Boss’ Day, and ‘going away’ parties, birthday parties, and other social occasions. In addition, conversation was not limited to just work but included a wide range of subjects unrelated to

work, with no resultant counseling. In contrast, an employee soliciting on behalf of a union was disciplined for both discussing and soliciting the signing of a union card. That employer was found in violation of the NLRA. Guidelines: 1. Don’t wait and update/revise/review policies until after union activity has already begun. 2. Decide what the harms are that the policy is intended to prevent: disruption of customer service? Customers seeing disturbing information? Noise? Crowding? Distraction during working times as opposed to breaks or off duty periods? Don’t suddenly have a concern about noise, though, for example, just at the same time someone first posts a piece of union literature on a bulletin board. 3. Draft a policy that is focused on doing just what is necessary to accomplish those goals and address the identified concerns. 4. Don’t have a policy that allows unlimited exceptions so long as approved by someone in management. 5. Don’t have a policy that forbids union activity, or that is used to discipline an employee for union activity, when other solicitation activity is allowed. 6. Don’t have an access policy that forbids solicitation and distribution in areas where non-union solicitations and distributions have taken place in the past.

7. Do have a policy that limits access solely with respect to the interior of the facility and other working areas; “mixed use” areas or areas that have been used for solicitation in non-union activities cannot be limited in terms of the content of the use by employees and discussion allowed. 8. Do disseminate the policy to all employees, not just the ones engaging in activities associated with unions. 9. Do have a policy that applies to off-duty employees seeking access to the facility for any purpose (or base the limits on criteria like location and whether interfering with customer service). You can have exceptions that allow access by employees in their capacity not as employees but as customers/patients/visitors themselves with that access simply requiring that employees in those capacities follow the same rules as any other customer/patient/visitor.

Klahr Center hosts the 2015 Pride Film Festival

The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine, the UMA Diversity Committee, and Katz Library present the 2015 Pride Film Festival at the Michael Klahr Center on October 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th at 7 p.m. The Pride Film Festival was created three years ago by a group of individuals on the campus of the University of Maine at Augusta with the goal of showing films that encouraged discussion and celebration of the LGBTQ community in central Maine. All films are free and open to the public. Snacks and refreshments are provided, and a discussion is held following each film. The 2015 festival begins on Thursday, October 8th with the showing of Pride (2014). One of the surprises of the Cannes Film Festival, and winner of the Queer Palm Award, The Guardian called Pride â&#x20AC;&#x153;Impassioned and lovable.â&#x20AC;? Set in 1984 in a small mining village in Wales, the film is the story of a group of gay and lesbian ac-

tivists who raise money to assist striking British mine workers and their families. The National Union of Mineworkers is reluctant to accept the support in fear of being associated with an openly gay group, so the activists go directly to one of the hardest hit villages where the strike has affected nearly every family. The New Yorker called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brilliantly Entertaining.â&#x20AC;? Pride is 119 minutes and is rated R. The film for Thursday, October 15th is Transamerica (2005). Felic-

ity Huffman delivers a tour-de-force performance as a pre-operative transsexual named Bree (whose given name was Stanley). One week before going under the knife, Bree learns that she fathered a boy who is now 17 and is in trouble with the law in New York. The two strangers take a cross country trip to LA and their lives are changed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny in spots, touching in others and uniformly lifeaffirming.â&#x20AC;? Minneapolis Star Tribune. Transamerica is 103 minutes and

is rated R. Political hypocrisy is the theme of the film on Thursday, October 22nd. The documentary Outrage (2009) by Kirby Dick recounts some of the most famous examples of anti-gay advocates caught in situations that revealed that political will sometimes isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t related to personal inclination. Outrage premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival before being released theatrically and was immediately denounced by former New York City Mayor Ed



Koch, one of the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subjects. Outrage was nominated for a 2010 Emmy Award, and won Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jury award for best documentary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A powerful, disturbing, and significant film.â&#x20AC;? LA Times. Outrage is 88 minutes long and is unrated, but deals with sexual topics. The annual Pride Film Festival always ends with a party, and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party will be on Thursday, October 29th with Wigstock: The Movie (1995). During

the 80s and 90s, Wigstock was a Labor Day staple of New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s East Village. The annual drag show featured the most famous drag performers in the country. Barry Shillsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; documentary captures the performances and behindthe-scenes adventures of the event, and features a fantastic soundtrack. Included in this film is an unforgettable performance by Ru Paul at the peak of his popularity. This final film of the festival will end with a party and those who are attending are encouraged to dress up, or crossdress up in your most fun outfit. The New York Times called Wigstock â&#x20AC;&#x153;good-natured, campy fun.â&#x20AC;? Wigstock runs 85 minutes and is rated R. All films are free and will be shown at the Michael Klahr Center, 46 University Drive, Augusta. For more information visit or call 207-621-3530. n
