sub-committees include: Educational, Technology, Interior/ Exterior Design, Energy, Sustainability and Maintenance, Performing Arts, Athletic Space and Public Relations. The Educational SubCommittee continues to establish the layout and needs of the high school’s classrooms. The group is also designing administrative offices and clarifying common areas, teacher work and custodial spaces. In addition, sub-committee members have been meeting with safety experts to design new safety features to be a part of the renovations and additions.

By Kimberly Bell Contributing Writer SOUTH BERWICK – Feb. 12 marks a very special day for South Berwick. On that day in 1814, South Berwick separated from Berwick and became its own town in the province of Maine. The celebration of this day will kick off on Feb. 12 with a birthday extravaganza to take place at the South Berwick Library. Residents and non-residents alike are invited to attend this free event from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and enjoy many festivities including a reading of the incorporation papers, a student Meanwhile, the Technology Sub-Committee has met with teachers to begin envisioning what will be needed and available for technology within the next two years. At this time teachers have developed a list of their technology related needs. At their first meeting, the Interior/Exterior Design SubCommittee was brought up to date on the future layout of the high school. Discussions have focused on common areas for students including lighting and natural views in these spaces. Also discussed was the use of movable walls for some classrooms. The Superintendent and WHS Principal Jim Daly will inspect other buildings which See HIGH SCHOOL page 6...

performance of the national anthem, as well as girl scouts singing songs popular at the time of the incorporation. There will also be a visit from the staff of Senator Susan Collins bringing a congratulatory letter for the town. The library will be providing time period appropriate refreshments such as apple cider and gingerbread. Library director Karen Eger encourages everyone to come and take part in this celebration for the town. “It’s always great to get together and celebrate, especially this time of year,” she said. South Berwick’s history

is rich with accounts of Native American tribes, the sawmill industry and waterfront trade. With the European settlement in 1631, the area was considered part of Kittery. It was then incorporated in 1713 as Berwick, Maine’s ninth oldest town. This paved the way for the beginning of the town of South Berwick. Those interested in learning more about the area in the time period of 1713-1813 are encouraged to visit South Berwick’s town hall, which is displaying an exhibit called “Becoming South Berwick: SurvivSee 200TH page 4...

Laura Graham Wildlife Specialist

Laura Graham discovered her love of wildlife while working with birds affected by an oil spill in Washington. For the past two years, she has been a crucial member of the Center of Wildlife Staff.

Efforts Being Made to Protect Salmon Falls River

BERWICK Water quality in the Salmon Falls Watershed affects about 47,000 people including the communities of Berwick and Somersworth, N.H. who depend on it for clean drinking water, according to the Salmon Falls River Watershed Collaborative. The Coalition, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA),

and Great Works Regional Land Trust, are highlighting efforts to protect this vital resource. Kira Jacobs, of the EPA in Boston, will be a guest speaker at the Annual Meeting of Great Works Regional Land Trust, held at the Berwick Town Hall on the evening of Feb. 13.

The River, which flows along the southern border of Berwick, is the largest river system contributing to the Great Bay estuary that borders Maine and New Hampshire.

Brick Store Museum in Search of Local World War II History

KENNEBUNK Beginning in April, the Brick Store Museum will present a new exhibition, “Vitamin V: How Food Fought the Second World War.” Using its vast collection of war-era propaganda posters, the exhibit promises to focus on how

the war was fought on the home front. Staff has begun the process of culling its archival and threedimensional objects to illustrate the exhibition. To augment its small mid-century collection, the Museum is seeking any information or objects involving local residents in World War II and on

puts it into perspective when she says, “The last celebration (the town had) of this scale was in 1976, for the country’s bicentennial. It’s been fun talking to residents that participated in those festivities as we planned the year ahead for South Berwick.” To minimize the cost of any celebrations, the town has relied solely on volunteers and organizations to help make this come to life. Such volunteers will be hosting an event called “Diva Night’s Bicentennial Bash” on March 21 at the The Barn Outlook Farm. Women are invited to dress in the style of their favorite era and enjoy the food, auctions, door prices, and more. Cynthia Gagnon, committee member for planning Diva

Night, is very excited for this year’s theme for celebration. “This year, because it’s the town’s 200th birthday and that fact won’t be repeated, the small group that plans Diva Night decided that this was an opportunity to recognize the towns birthday,” she said. This event is $40 per person and the proceeds raised will go towards a special bicentennial gift for South Berwick. As the celebration continues to May, the Counting House museum will be running an exhibit called “Our Downtown: 200 years of History”. This will give the public a glimpse into how the downtown has changed, or surprisingly, not changed over the last 200 years. Historical Society members Cari Quarter, Norma Keim, and Wendy Pirsig, will develop a look into the downtown’s fascinating lifespan. Quater says,“[The exhibit] will highlight the history of key institutions in downtown South Berwick including churches, schools, municipal offices and the business blocksince the town’s incorporation.” Eger has always been taken aback by the amount of support and pride the people of South Berwick show and offer every day. “I’ve never worked in a town where so many people have so much to give” she said. Similarly proud of the town are its people. Long time resident and co-owner of Great Works Chiropractic in South Berwick, Bri Duga, had nothing but great things to say about the town in which she lives. “The best part about South Berwick is that the town is drawn together by people who share a common love, a love of this town and the community that we have built. When people are drawn together like that, they can accomplish anything.” The bicentennial celebrations will be continued throughout the year and showcased at many well known events such as the Strawberry Festival. Numerous organizations will be tweaking their events to feature an 1814 theme. The Old Berwick Historical Society will distribute an event calendar quarterly updating the coming months and showcasing the bicentennial happenings. To see if an event is featuring a South Berwick Bicentennial celebration, keep a look out for the signature red banner reading “South Berwick 1814-2014”.

...200TH from page 4 ing the Revolution”. This exhibit is focused on the area while it was still a part of Berwick. This was set up by the Old Berwick Historical Society and will be on display until the end of the year. Involved with much of the planning for the bicentennial, the Old Berwick Historical Society has many offerings for the public interested in the town’s history. They will be hosting a historical house tour of some of South Berwick’s oldest homes on June 21 and are offering a series of lectures, including “Art on Wheels: The story of the Grace Darling Omnibus,” exploring the towns own horse drawn public transportation system on March 27.

AWS Honors Spay Day WEST KENNEBUNK World Spay Day, an international event bringing attention to companion animal over-population and to spay/ neuter as a successful means of saving the lives of companion animals, will be honored at the Animal Welfare Society (AWS) through a further reduction in fees for cat spay and neuter surgeries. For the fifth year in a row, AWS will be offering deeply discounted cat spay/neuter surgeries for the month of February to low income cat owners living in York County. A reduced fee of $10 will cover the surgery, a rabies vaccine and a health exam. Sharon Secovich, AWS’ spay/neuter coordinator and co-founder of Spay Maine, notes that animal shelters and rescue groups across Maine are

preparing for “kitten season.” Kitten season is the time of year when cats give birth, flooding shelters with litters of kittens. In Maine, kitten season begins in early spring and ends in late fall. With an average gestation period of 64 days, a cat can easily have three or four litters each “kitten season.” “If that isn’t enough reason to have your cat spayed or neutered, a cat can become pregnant as young as four months old,” said Secovich. “It is basically, kittens having kittens.” Secovich is referring to the common misconception that cats must be at least six months of age before getting the surgery, though many kittens will go through their first heat cycle well before six months of age. “It is very safe for kit-



tens to be spayed or neutered at an early age,” said Dr. Steve Askin, VMD and owner of the Shelter Spay/Neuter Clinic at AWS. “We typically perform these procedures any time after 12 weeks of age. The recovery period is much quicker, and we can vaccinate against rabies at the same time.” In 2013, AWS cared for 1,746 cats and kittens. Many of these cats came to the AWS because their owners could not afford to have them spayed or neutered or because they were the unwanted kittens of unspayed female cats. However, due to many years of work promoting spay/neuter awareness and assisting pet owners with surgery costs, AWS has seen a marked decrease in the number

ity of Federal grants and third party funding to help with the costs of implementing desired alternative energy systems. In other developments, school officials met with representatives from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in a public informational meeting at the Wells High School Auditorium on Jan. 14 to review the site plan for public comment prior to submission of the DEP permit application. Once the DEP application is completed, the site plan will be reviewed with local planning and zoning boards. In addition, studies about school parking and on-campus traffic flow have been completed and will be studied. Also, initial discussions with the Wells Fire Department have taken place to review existing water lines and pressures for the new fire protection system to be installed during school renovations. Local utility companies have been contacted by project engineers to review new power installations, possible energy rebate programs, and scheduling of new power services. In the near future subcommittee meetings will include review of the proposed athletic and performing arts facilities. A goal is to have all of the design development started and completed by the end of February.

Savings is Good, But It’s Not Investing It’s a good thing to have some savings. When you put the money in a low-risk account, you can be pretty sure it will be readily available when you need it. Nonetheless, “saving” is not “investing” — and knowing the difference could pay off for you far into the future. Think about it this way: Saving is for today, while investing is for tomorrow. You need your savings to pay for your daily expenses, such as groceries, and your monthly bills — mortgage, utilities, and so on. In fact, you might even want your savings to include an emergency fund containing six to 12 months’ worth of living expenses to pay for unexpected costs, such as a new furnace or a major car repair. These are all “here and now” expenses — and you could use your savings to pay for them. But in thinking of your long-term goals, such as college for your children and a

comfortable retirement for yourself, most individuals typically can’t simply rely on their savings — they’ll need to invest. Why? Because, quite simply, investments can grow — and you will need this growth potential to help achieve your objectives. To illustrate the difference between saving and investing, let’s do a quick comparison. Suppose you put $200 per month into a savings account that paid hypothetical 3 percent interest (which is actually higher than the rates typically being paid today). After 30 years, you would have accumulated about $106,000, assuming you were in the 25 percent federal tax bracket. Now, suppose you put that same $200 per month in a taxdeferred investment that hypothetically earned 7 percent a year. At the end of 30 years, you would end up with about $243,000. (Keep in mind that you would have to pay taxes on withdrawals. Hypotheticals do not include any transaction costs or fees.) This enormous disparity be-

tween the amounts accumulated in the two accounts clearly shows the difference between “saving” and “investing.” Still, you might be thinking that investing is risky, while savings accounts carry much less risk. And it is certainly true that investing does involve risks — investments can lose value, and there’s no guarantee that losses will be recovered. Nonetheless, if you put all your money in savings, you’re actually incurring an even bigger risk — the risk of not achieving your financial goals. In fact, a low-rate savings account might not even keep up with inflation, which means that, over time, you will lose purchasing power. Ultimately, the question isn’t whether you should save or invest — you need to do both. But you do need to decide how much of your financial resources to devote toward savings and how much toward investments. By paying close attention to your cash flow, you should be able to get a good idea of the best savings and investment mix for your par-

ticular situation. For example, if you find yourself constantly dipping into your long-term investments to pay for short-term needs, you probably don’t have enough money in savings. On the other hand, if you consistently find yourself with large sums in your savings account even after you’ve paid all your bills, you might be “sitting” on too much cash — which means you should consider moving some of this money into investments with growth potential. Saving and investing — that’s a winning combination.

New Credit Score Myths Not Always to Be Believed Myths and folklore endlessly evolve as cultures change, technologies emerge and societies grow. Some myths - like the one that warns against washing Pop Rocks down with Coke - are chuckle-worthy. Others, such as fallacies about how credit scores work, can be downright detrimental. Thankfully, some credit score myths seem to be fading, such as the mistaken belief that your credit score is beyond your control. In fact, 94 percent of respondents to a 2013 survey by the Consumer Federation of America and VantageScore Solutions, a credit score development company, knew that making on-time loan payments helps improve your credit score. New myths, however, seem to constantly emerge. Here are five new credit scoring myths and the truths that debunk them: Myth No. 1: When applying for a job, a bad credit score can count against you. The truth: While many employers do consider credit when evaluating job candidates, they are looking at a modified version of credit reports. Not credit scores. What’s more, potential employers can’t even look at a candidate’s credit report unless a candidate gives express permission. And finally, if the employer’s decision is adverse to the applicant, in most cases they must provide a copy of the report before taking any adverse action based in whole or in part on the report.

Myth No. 2: Closing a credit account is always good for your credit score. The truth: While closing an account might make sense for your own personal financial situation, it also might count against your credit score. For example, if you pay off a credit card and choose to close the account, you’ve reduced your overall debt (which is good) but also reduced your amount of credit available for use (which may not be good for your score). How closing an account impacts your credit score will depend on how much other credit you have available on your other accounts and the general makeup of your personal credit history. Myth No. 3: Anyone can submit information to the credit bureaus about you. The truth: Lenders and other organizations such as collection agencies and even some landlords report unpaid debts, payment information and balances to the three national credit reporting companies (CRCs) - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. By law, only companies that meet responsibilities mandated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) for accuracy may provide data to the three national CRCs. All organizations furnishing credit data to the credit bureaus must respond in the event that there is a dispute. Myth No. 4: Your social media activity can affect your credit score. The truth: While it’s true that some lenders have begun reviewing social media accounts as a way to market their

products and services more effectively, nothing you do on social media is included in your credit reports at the three national CRCs. And mainstream credit score models used by lenders only use information that resides in these reports. Myth No. 5: You only have one credit score. The truth: You may actually have many … dozens in fact. Although most people are familiar with the three national CRCs that gather credit information and use it to assign credit scores, there are actually many credit scoring companies. Your score may also vary de-

pending on which CRC’s data is used. What’s more, different types of financial organizations may use different models to evaluate you. For example,

BUSINESS & FINANCE Starting Your Second Career

The days when professionals would spend their entire professional lives with a single firm are largely a thing of the past. In fact, many people not only switch companies multiple times before retirement, but some even switch professions before retiring. As exciting as it can be to pursue a new career, men and women over 50 know that such a decision is not without risk. While younger professionals with few obligations can often handle bumps in the road on their way to a second career,

older professionals making a similar move often must consider the potential effects such a pursuit might have on their families, finances and futures, including their retirements. But as difficult as it may seem to pursue a second career after your fiftieth birthday, there are steps men and women over 50 can take when pursuing a new career to ensure their second act is as successful as the first. Decide what you want, and not just what you want to do. The desire to pursue a second career no doubt stems from more than just dissatisfaction with a current profession.

Many people switch jobs or even careers because they find their current careers too demanding, leaving little time for family or hobbies that have nothing to do with work. If what you really want is more time at home or more time to pursue a particular hobby, then keep this in mind when looking for a second career, and make sure that career won’t demand too much of your time. For example, if your goal in finding a new career is to get more work-life balance, then starting your own business, which can require long hours at the outset and even after the business has established itself, might not be for you. But if what you want is a more challenging career and to be your own boss, then you will likely find the cost of achieving that goal, even if that cost is more demands on your time, is worth it. Assess your skill set. Professionals over 50 have lots to offer, but it’s still important for such men and women to make an honest assessment of their skill set and find a career in which those skills are transferable. Some men and women might want to pursue a second career that will make little to

no use of their skill set, and that’s perfectly alright. But extra schooling might be necessary in such situations, and going back to school oftentimes requires a considerable commitment of both time and money. For those who simply want to put their existing skills to use in a different field or environment, assess those skills and look for lines of work in which they figure to be especially valuable. If there are any particular aspects of your current job that you want to avoid in the future, consider that when assessing your skills and choosing a second career. Even if they don’t know it,

Make a trial run. Nowhere does it say that professionals can’t take a trial run at a second career while still fully engaged in their first career. In fact, testing the waters before you jump in is a good way to gauge your interest in a potential second career and how well your skill set applies to that field. A trial run, which can be conducted by volunteering with a nonprofit organization or through a part-time job or simply offering your services to a company free of charge in exchange for a chance to learn how the business operates, can shed light on the inner workings of a particular industry, showing you how things work behind the curtain. Testing the waters may reaffirm your belief that a certain line of work is for you, or it might send you back to the drawing board.

How to Cut Costs on Home Improvement Projects Over the last several decades, more and more homeowners have embraced the notion that homes need not all be alike, and that an individual’s home can cater to his or her personal tastes and needs. The trend of modeling a home after one’s own tastes has extended beyond choosing furniture or other replaceable elements to structural changes and full-scale renovations, thus upping the financial ante for homeowners who want to turn their homes into places more in tune with their own personalities. When it comes to improving their homes, many homeowners associate cutting costs with cutting corners, which can put residents’ safety at risk. But there are ways for homeowners to save money on home improvement projects while still ensuring their homes are safe and sound. Work with recycled materials. Homeowners about to undertake small-scale do-ityourself projects can often save money by using recycled materials. Many homeowners do not go the DIY route when making larger renovations, but those that do so can save money by using recycled materials. However, homeowners should know that many contractors do not work with recycled materials in an effort to avoid liability should something go awry during the project or after it is completed. But DIYers can benefit from using recycled materials, which can

be purchased at various locations. For example, Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization devoted to building homes for the less fortunate, operates its own ReStores, which are nonprofit home improvement stores that sell recycled building materials at a steep discount. ReStore locations can be found by visiting Get your hands dirty. Labor costs on home improvement projects are considerable, but homeowners can cut these costs by doing some of the labor themselves. Even those men and women with little or no DIY experience can still chip in and save some money. Homeowners about to embark on a rebuilding project can chip in and do some of the demolition on their own. For example, when replacing sidewalks, homeowners can simply break up and remove the existing sidewalk on their own rather than paying their contractors to do such work for them. It’s best for homeowners to leave interior labor to the professionals, as they are more knowledgeable about how to find loadbearing walls and plumbing fixtures than the average weekend warrior homeowner. Homeowners who mistakenly take out fixtures inside their homes in an attempt to cut down on labor costs might find such miscues are far more costly than simply paying for the labor from the get-go. Remember how flattering imitation can be. As the old adage goes, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.� Homeowners working on tight budgets can opt for

imitation materials that appear and feel just like more costly authentic materials. When opting for imitation materials, homeowners should know that they or their representatives cannot falsely represent the materials as

authentic when selling the home, no matter how much materials look and feel like the real thing. Schedule projects during the offseason. Like many professionals, contractors have busy seasons

and seasons that tend to be slow. These seasons can change depending on geography, but homeowners can save money by postponing projects until See PROJECTS page 19...

Health & Fitness How to Shop for Dental Insurance

Dental health is essential to overall health, affecting everything from our hearts to our mental well-being. Yet despite ample research that underscores the importance of taking care of our teeth, millions of Americans never go to the dentist. A lack of dental

insurance is one of the top reasons Americans don’t keep up with their dental care. “In 2008, the last year for which statistics are available, the National Center for Health Statistics estimated that 45 million Americans were without dental insurance,” says Stacia

Almquist, senior vice president of dental for Assurant Employee Benefits. “Five years and a recession later, it’s reasonable to assume that number has stayed the same or grown. While at the same time dental insurance is as important - and affordable - as ever.”

Most people covered by dental insurance today receive the benefit as part of an employer-sponsored benefits package. And as awareness of the importance of dental health grows, more people are urging their employers to offer the benefit or are looking at buying individual dental coverage. Not all dental plans are created equal, so it is important to understand what you are purchasing. “Changes in health care law and increased opportunity for people to purchase their own health coverage have made many consumers more aware of the need for informed decisions when choosing health insurance,” Almquist says. “Choosing a dental plan should also be an informed decision.” If you’re in the market for stand-alone dental coverage (and if you don’t already have dental insurance, you should consider it) or get to pick a plan through your employer, keep these points in mind when comparison shopping: Understand the alphabet soup of dental plans. Two common insurance acronyms include PPO (preferred provider organization) and DHMO (dental health maintenance organization). Most PPO plans have a large dental network of providers and provide 100 percent benefit coverage for preventive care,

cleanings, check-ups, protective sealants and X-rays, while major services such as crowns and bridges are usually covered at 50 percent. A DHMO usually has a smaller network of dentists than a PPO network, with the trade off being that members typically pay less out of pocket for services. Dental discount plans are also available. Discount plans are not insurance, but are similar to wholesale store plans where you pay a discounted fee for products or services.Look for options and extras. Look for a dental plan with a network that offers the options that you need. Your relationship with a dentist is as valuable and personal as one with your primary care physician. Make sure the dental network you choose includes a dentist you are comfortable seeing or one that has dental recruiters who are willing to try to recruit your dentist. Ultimately more dentists in the network mean more options for you and your family. Also look for ancillary services such as dental hotlines similar to Ask-A-Nurse lines where you can get 24/7 answers when dental emergencies arise. Maximize your dental See DENTAL page 16...

Health & Fitness Simple Ways to Maintain Liver Health The liver is the body’s largest internal organ, responsible for processing substances that enter the body and acting as a filtering system that is essential to eliminating toxic substances. What’s more, the liver produces proteins, clotting factors, enzymes and hormones essential to health. Considering how integral a properly functioning liver can be, one can see just how vital it is to maintain a healthy liver. Unfortunately, many of the foods, beverages and medications people consume on a regular basis can affect both liver health and the overall health of the body. But men and women can take several steps to ensure their liver stays healthy. Avoid excessive consumption of alcohol. Overconsumption of alcohol damages the liver. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the liver is the primary site of alcohol metabolism. Over

time, excessive drinking can damage the liver. It is best to keep your drinking to a minimum for the health of your liver and a variety of other reasons. Quit smoking. Every time you smoke you are putting more than 60 different chemicals into your body. At some point, cigarette smoke will be handled by the liver. Cigarette smoke can decrease the amount of oxygen that red blood cells carry to the vital organs of the body, including the liver. Over time, this can result in damage to the liver known as cirrhosis. In addition, the American Cancer Society notes that some studies have found a link between smoking and liver cancer. However, this relationship is difficult to discern because smokers also tend to be more likely to drink alcohol. Eat healthier. A healthy diet that includes an array of fresh fruits and vegetables is good for the liver. Vegetables are excellent sources of fiber, which helps

toxins move quickly through the digestive system without putting stress on the liver. Sulfur-rich foods, such as garlic and onions, can help detoxify

environmental toxins that end up in the body. Turmeric, licorice and cinnamon may also support healthy liver function. Exercise caution with medications. Certain medications can tax the liver, especially when

medications are mixed with other substances. Even seemingly innocuous medications, like acetaminophen, can cause potential liver damage over time. In fact, CNCA Health notes that acetaminoSee LIVER page 17...

Health & Fitness Did You Know About GMOs?

Genetically modified foods, or GMOs, have been a topic of heated conversation for the last several months. People have strong opinions on both sides of the GMO debate. In January 2014, retail giant General Mills decided to produce GMO-Free Cheerios, one of its most popular

and well-known cereals. This move now makes shopping for a GMO-free cereal that much easier. However, finding other products that do not contain GMOs may not be so simple, and consumers may have to do some research. Food companies in the United States are not required to label foods to

indicate use of GMOs. It is safe to assume that corn and soybeans produced in the United States are genetically modified. Papayas are often modified as well. Produce that has been genetically modified

will have a bar code that starts with the digit “8.” One way to avoid GMOs is to buy only organic foods, which, in many instances, are GMO-free thanks to stringent regulations. In terms of other foods, it very well may be a guessing game. Speaking with a brand’s customer service de-

partment may be the best way to learn if they offer any GMO-free products. This article was provided by MetroCreative. The Weekly Sentinel does not endorse any products or services suggested by MetroCreative articles.

Ultimately taking care of your teeth today keeps costs down for you and your family in the future. “Poor dental health has been linked to a range of other health issues, from cardiovascular disease and premature birth to increased risk of Alzheimer’s and eating disorders,” says Almquist. “Fortunately, it’s possible to help protect your dental health with the right insurance coverage.”

Health & Fitness ...LIVER from page 15 phen overdose is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States. When taking any medications, men and women should read the information sheets that accompany prescriptions to determine if any side effects that may affect the liver are noted. Doctors may require frequent checkups and blood tests to monitor liver health when their patients are taking certain types of medications.

servatives and other substances can be particularly detrimental to liver health. Sip green tea. Green tea is full of antioxidants known as catechins, which have been shown to improve the functions of the liver.

As the largest organ of the body, the skin should be well cared for and protected. Winter can pose a host of challenges for those who typically experience dry skin at this time of year. Between dropping and fluctuating temperatures and low humidity, it is easy for skin to feel the negative effects of the season. Most people experience dry skin in the winter because during this time, skin doesn’t produce enough moisture to compensate for the drier air and lack of mois-

ture. If dry skin is neglected, it can become red, flaky and itchy. Dry skin patches can develop into a more serious inflammation called dermatitis; and once the protective skin is disrupted by dermatitis, the skin is more susceptible to bacterial, yeast or fungal infections and allergic reactions on the skin. In spite of the harsh winter elements, this season does not have to take a toll on your skin. You can carry out a preventive skincare regimen that will help

you avoid dry, cracked and uncomfortable skin. Here are some easy and effective tips to help keep your skin happy and healthy during the winter season: Keep bathing or showering to 10 minutes, using warm - not hot - water. Hot water can dry out your skin by allowing moisture to escape, while breaking down the lipid barriers. Use mild soaps or soapfree cleansers. Many soaps strip important lipids and oils from the outermost layer of skin and can often contain ingredients that are damaging to the skin. Avoid excessive handwashing or excessive use of hand sanitizers. Alcohol-based sanitizer in particular can be very tough on skin due to the fact that it dissolves oil, which can leave the skin feeling dry, chapped and irritable. Moisturize thoroughly after bathing or handwashing, while skin is wet, with an ointment, cream or lotion. Moisturizers work best when they’re applied to skin that is wet or damp. They help to seal in the moisture and keep the skin looking and feeling healthy. “There are a good number of effective skincare products on the market to help consumers combat dry skin during this time of year, such as Lac-Hydrin Five, a reasonably priced, gentle, alpha-hydroxy lotion which restores moisture to the skin by hydrating the skin’s natural barrier,” says dermatologist Avery S. Kuflik, MD. Other causes of dry skin at this time of year include certain fabrics commonly found in warm winter clothing, such as wool, and central heating systems found in homes, which can reduce the humidity in the air and dry out the skin. Humidifiers are useful devices to have at home because they increase moisture levels in the air, which helps the skin. They also promote a variety of other health benefits. “While Lac-Hydrin Five is scientifically based and therapeutically effective, those suffering from chronic, severe skin conditions - such as eczema should seek the advice of their doctor about appropriate therapeutic options,” adds Ashish Anvekar, MD, vice president Brand Division, North America, Ranbaxy Laboratories Inc.

~ Ask The Computer Lady ~ Dear Computer Lady, Do you have any suggestions for removing a stubborn virus? My web searches are being redirected to other sites, and I constantly get messages saying I need to update flash player. I’ve run Malwarebytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Super Antispyware, and they removed some adware, but I can’t seem to resolve the problem. I spent an hour with Norton Support, and they wanted to charge me $100 to have their virus removal team work on it. This makes me mad, because I pay Norton to keep me from getting viruses. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you, Peggy Dear Peggy, It sounds like you have two different things going on. First, is the notice to update flash player. That is normal. Almost every computer that I work on has that

notice popping up. I usually just update it for you and then the notice goes away until Adobe releases another update. Just go to the adobe website at and download the latest version of flash player. Your web searches being redirected is a bit trickier. If you have removed all the malware that your programs can find, you will need to hunt for and find the source of the problem yourself (or bring it into your local computer repair shop and have them do it for you). Start by going to the control panel and removing anything that has to do with search assistants, conduit, toolbars, coupons or other things like that. Once you have removed any programs that might have been causing the problem, you will need to reset your default search engine and home pages in your web browser.

Most malware can be removed with these steps. Elizabeth Dear Computer lady, I just read the article about Outlook Express. I also have an older laptop. Since I only use it for e-mails, browsing the web and games, would you suggest that I get an iPad to replace my old laptop? Many friends have one and seem happy with them. Thanks so much for all of your helpful hints and info. Sincerely, Joanne Dear Joanne, An iPad would certainly replace your old laptop for email, web and games. I use mine all the time for those three things. I already use Gmail for my email program on my computer, so I downloaded the free Gmail app for my iPad and use that in place of the apple email app that came with the iPad. I also use the Chrome browser from Google, and also installed the Chrome app for

my iPad. As far as games goes, there is an abundance of games on the Apple app store. To save time (and money) I use an app called, Apps Gone Free, which gives me a list of apps every day that are free for a limited time. I have found quite a few great apps that I would have never thought to search for just browsing through the app store. Printing from your iPad might be tricky to set up depending on what you have for a printer, but I don’t print as much now that I have my iPad because I can carry the information with me much easier right on the tablet. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, How can I transfer pictures from my iPad to my desktop computer? Thank you, Helen Dear Helen, It is actually fairly easy to transfer pictures from your iPad to your computer. In fact,

you don’t even need any extra software (like iTunes) installed on the computer. Windows actually treats your iPad like a camera. Here is how: 1. Plug the USB end of your iPad charging cable into a USB port on your computer. 2. Plug the other end into your iPad. 3. Depending on what version of Windows you are using, you might see a dialog box appear. If so, click on “Import photos using Windows” or “Open folder to view files”. Otherwise, follow the steps below. 4. Click on “Start” and open “My Computer” or “Computer” or “This PC”. If you are using Windows 8 and don’t have a start menu, tap the windows logo key and type “This PC”. 5. You will see your iPad listed in the list of drives; double click on it to open. 6. Drag the folder containing your photos to the “Pictures” folder on your computer or wherever you want the pictures to be. Elizabeth Interested in learning more?

Terns. These birds begin to arrive on the beaches in April. Their nesting and fledging seasons extend into the summer months. While most often found at Wells Beach, the beaches at Drakes Island and Moody must also be checked. In the beginning, there was a threat of beach closure to ensure the safety of these species. Instead, Town officials proposed a monitoring program which would keep the beaches open for use while protecting the birds through oversight and education of beach-goers. This program has been very successful. From the outset, no birds have been lost due to human ac-

tivity. To maintain this success, volunteers and people who are willing to commit to walk the beach on a regular basis at least once a week are needed. From the middle of April through May, their task is to identify and count the birds, and locate their nests so that they can be protected by fencing. From late May through mid-August, volunteers check the nests, report the location of chicks, and simply make people on the beach aware of the birds and of the simple do’s and don’ts of protecting them. This is a process of educating through conversation, not one of enforcement. Training is provided to all volunteers as well as identifica-


tion and parking at the beach. Reporting is a simple process. If you enjoy walking the beach and are willing to assist with this program, you can set your own schedule as to which day and approximate time. Ideally, there would be someone at the beach every day. You can volunteer for a month or for the season, for a morning or afternoon walk, alone or with a friend. For more information, contact Mitzi Baron, volunteer coordinator at Town Hall, 208 Sanford Rd Wells or on the web at under Volunteers. Volunteers are needed from mid-April through September.

~ Pets ~ Safe Haven Humane Society WELLS Although there may be a shortage of kittens at this time of year, there is no shortage of adult stray or feral kitties living outside, all desperate to be rescued. Safe Haven’s phone rings with people tearfully telling us about stray cats coming to their property in search of food and shelter. We’re certainly doing all we can to rescue as many as possible. We recently recruited two new foster homes to accommodate several of these desperate cases. In these new foster homes, recently trapped stray and feral cats are enjoying their first experience being warm, having soft blankets, and plenty of food and fresh water. We’re thankful to new volunteers, Michelle in South Berwick and Wendy in Kennebunk. Without your help, these kitties would still be outside cold and hungry. If you can’t foster a kitty, you can help by becoming a sponsor for just $10 a month. This tax-deductible donation helps us pay for their medical care, food and litter. Due to the increased number of cats coming into our foster program, we need more canned cat food. We took a survey of all our kitties, and

they all prefer Friskies poultry flavors more than other brand or flavors. Donations can be dropped off from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays through Saturdays. Balancing the 60 feline personalities under our adoption center roof is a fascinating study in cat psychology. What amazes most people is that somehow, all the cats get along and roam freely. Only a few kitties let us know they would be happiest being an only kitty. One such kitty is Sailor, who has been featured in the paper several times, but who has still not been adopted. This beautiful male cat looks like a poster cat. He’s young, healthy, very lovable and has a curious and playful personality that makes him a delightful entertainer. People can’t believe how lovable he is. He head-butts anyone who holds him, always seeks your attention and companionship, and wants to be your best friend. However, Sailor prefers not to be around other cats. When he roams freely, he has a tendency to rule the roost, and

Voice For Animals

some other cats get fearful of his powerful presence. Sailor is a big fellow, long and muscular under his billowing white hair. When he plays, he plays hard and fast. So a big home with children over age eight would be best, simply because he is strong and could knock a person over when he’s zooming by. He has excellent litterbox and grooming skills, and keeps his coat immaculate. He’d love a cat run, sunroom or a screenedin porch. The more room the better for this big guy. Sailor is a remarkable example of the feline species. Truly, he is a kitty to meet, and once you do, you will never forget him.

YORK Pepper is a handsome 16 pounds of love. He is a gentle giant and was “papa kitty” to many kittens over the summer. He would play gently with the kittens in his foster home. Sometimes he would just lay on the floor and let them pounce all over him. When he had had enough he would gently put his paw on them to settle them down. He was never rough with the little ones. Pepper now finds himself the last cat up for adoption in his foster home. All of “his kittens” have moved to their forever homes. He is patiently waiting for his. Pepper is a rags to riches story and is waiting for his forev-

er home to finish his story with a happy-ever-after. Can you help Pepper write the rest of his story? He is neutered, vaccinated and combo tested. Pepper is about 6-years old. Please contact Voice for Animals at 207-715-0635 or email

His favorite activity is going for a run, but really anything that involves action and excitement is fine by him. The only thing he tends to avoid are squeaky toys because they scare him a little. Brindle might not be courageous, but he certainly is social. He loves the company of pretty much anyone, though his exciteSee AWS page 31...

Another Chance Animal Rescue NORTH BERWICK Meet Jag Jag is an exquisite gentle giant of a cat, sporting a soft, brown tiger coat and huge gold eyes. This sweet four-year-old young adult came into the rescue when his family relocated from the southern part of the country to a new residence in York County that allowed only two cats. The family made a very difficult decision to surrender the youngest kitty who could handle the transition better than either of the older kitties. Jag has always been an indoor only kitty and would very much like to continue this type of life style for his safety and longevity. Jag is very easy going, will do well with children of all ages, other family members, including other cats and well behaved dogs.

~ News ~ Pay-to-Throw Program in Eliot Cuts Solid Waste by More Than Half ELIOT After its first four months of operation, the new pay-to-throw waste reduction and recycling program in Eliot has reduced solid waste by 57 percent and saved more than $8,500, according to figures released by the town. The program, managed by WasteZero, began Sept. 3. From September through December, Eliot residents threw away 57 percent less municipal solid waste (MSW) than they did in

the same three-month period the year prior: from 268 tons in 2012 down to 116 tons in 2013. In addition, Eliot saved $8,589 in tipping fees to dispose of their MSW - from $15,236 down to $6,647 in the same time period. The tipping fee savings put Eliot on pace save more than $25,000 per year, higher than their projected firstyear savings of $22,000. Eliot’s 6,200 residents participate in the pay-to-throw program via the town’s transfer station. In the program, residents

dispose of their garbage in purple plastic trash bags imprinted with the town seal that they purchase from retail stores in and around town. Paying for each bag of trash they throw away gives residents the incentive to create less waste and recycle more, which reduces disposal costs and generates new revenue. Bags are priced at $1.25 for 15-gallon bags and $2 for 30gallon bags. Eliot Public Works Director Joel Moulton said, “The town of Eliot in general did a very good

job at recycling prior to the implementation of the pay-per-bag program - but very good and excellent are a long ways in between. To reduce the disposal of municipal solid waste by greater than another 50 percent is excellent, which puts the town on track to maintaining a low budget for its transfer station operation and in turn reduces the tax burden on residents.” WasteZero President Mark Dancy added, “Eliot has shown ...CAREER from page 12

York Native is the Engine Behind BA’s Stellar Season By Larry Favinger Contributing Writer SOUTH BERWICK She’s been a student at Berwick Academy since third grade, made the girls varsity basketball team as an eighth grader and is in her third year as co-captain of a team which this year is fighting for first place in the Eastern Independent League with a 14-4 record. She’s Rebecca Siegel of York. The daughter of Mary Ann and Andrew Siegel is the point guard of the Bulldogs, and, along with backcourt and senior class mate Torrie St Pierre of Portsmouth, gives opposing coaches a double barrel of trouble of which to deal with. “People have to deal with them,” Coach Brian Sanborn said of the duo. He said St. Pierre is the creator and Siegel is finisher. “They feed off each other,” he added. Sanborn, who has seen Siegel since she was in third grade, said she has “developed over time” to become a very level-headed player. “She’s a gamer,” he said. “A tremendous competitor. She works very hard at both ends of the court.” Siegel is the team’s leading scorer and is second on the squad in both assists and steals. Sanborn said Siegel not only made the team as an eighth grader but saw playing time as well. At the time the program was low on numbers, so Siegel and two classmates were invited to attend tryouts and all three made the team.

Rebecca Siegel has been a catalyst for the Berwick Academy Girls’ Basketball team since the eight grade. She hopes to lead this year’s squad to the New England Tournament.

The other two have since transferred, one to Phillips Exeter Academy and the other to Brooks, while Siegel has stayed at Berwick, compiling quite a record. She has been involved with basketball since she was about five years old, playing in programs provided by the York Recreation Department, and has attended camps at Colby College and St. Joseph’s as well. Siegel is a multi-sport athlete, playing soccer and lacrosse along with basketball. Academically her interests “change each year,” but her interests this year are psychology, English and history, but she’s unsure what path her studies will take in college. As to where she will go to school after graduation, Siegel says, “I’m looking at schools in the South,” A game that stands out in her mind from her career came

Lone Mainer Represents State at Sochi STOCKHOLM Russell Currier, 26, of Stockholm Maine, has earned a berth on the U.S. Men’s Olympic Biathlon team (a combination of cross country skiing and rifle shooting) during the February 2014 Winter Olympic games in Sochi. The first-time Olympic athlete represents the best of the Maine Winter Sports Center in Aroostook County, which has trained dozens of Olympic hopefuls from around the country.


Berwick Academy Girls’ Basketball WOLFBORO, N.H. -

The BA girls suffered a stunning loss at Brewster on Monday, 41-27. Berwick lost their second straight game and is now 14-3 on the season, while Brewster upped its record to 4-11. Three weeks ago, Berwick defeated Brewster 55-16 in South Berwick, but the team could not get anything going in this one. Down 18-6 at the half, Berwick rallied briefly to narrow the gap to 24-20 with seven minutes to go. Brewster outscored Berwick 16-5 down the stretch to secure the win. Suzanna Borg scored seven points off the bench to lead the team.


The Berwick girls basketball team dropped their third straight

a few weeks ago when Berwick defeated Proctor by three points. The Bulldogs lost to Proctor a year ago by 38 points. When not studying or taking part in athletics, Siegel is involved in outreach programs which provide community service in areas where it is needed. Looking at the current season, Siegel said, “This is the best team we’ve had in a while.” Her hope is that the team will keep playing strong to advance to the Eastern Independent League tournament. Following the league playoffs there is also a New England Tournament, which is extremely hard to make, as eight teams are taken from 33 qualified in the New England area.

Berwick Academy Announces Three Maine Recognizes Veterans for their Military Service BERWICK Presidential Scholar Candidates SOUTH BERWICK Berwick Academy is pleased to announce that senior Ian MacFarlane of York has been named a Presidential Scholar candidate. Each year, over 3,000 candidates are identified for the academic component of the program based on SAT and ACT scores, and of the 3,000 candidates, up to 141 students are named as Presidential Scholars, one of the Nation’s highest honors for high school students. The Presidential Scholars Program annually selects one male and one female student from each state (as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Americans living abroad) along with 15 at-large students and up to 20 students in the arts on the basis of outstanding scholarship, service, leadership, and creativity through a rigorous selection and review process administered by the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and the US Department of Education. Approximately 560 of the 3,000 candidates will be named semi-finalists, and up to 141 students will be named Presidential Scholars in April.

Ian MacFarlane is one of three Berwick Academy seniors who has been nominated as a Presidential Scholar candidate.

MacFarlane joins Nathaniel Goldblatt of Dover, NH and Daniel Perreault of Barrington, NH as the three Presidential Scholar candidates from Berwick Academy. Director of College Counseling Moira McKinnon commented, “Nathaniel, Ian, and Dan are hard working and talented students who have challenged themselves with rigorous classes throughout their time in the Upper School. I’m proud that three Berwick Academy students have been nominated in this competitive process; it’s our largest group of nominees in recent history and a testament to the strength of the senior class.”

If you Google “The Greatest Generation”, Wikipedia lists this as a “term coined by journalist Tom Brokaw to describe the generation who grew up in the United States during the Great Depression and then went on to fight in World War II”. Through his superb book, published in 1998, Brokaw tells the story of a generation of America’s citizen heroes and heroines. The State of Maine also recognizes their military service, along with veterans of Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War and the Persian Gulf. LTC Peter W. Ogden, director of Maine Veterans’ Services was recently hosted by Berwick’s Charles S. Hatch Post No. 79, The American Legion, to honor these veterans. Assisted by State Legion Adjutant Paul L’Heureux, he recognized some 138 members of the Post, presenting specially designed Governor’s certificates to the assembled veterans.

~ News ~ Preserving that instinctive fear is one of Graham’s primary objectives when working with adult and baby animals at Center for Wildlife. “We try to minimize the handling as much as we can,” she said. With her gift for educating, Graham explained that baby birds go through a process of imprinting whereby their own sense of identity is determined by who they see when they first focus their eyes. When the Center is inundated with baby birds needing frequent feedings - which can mean going through tens of thousands of mealworms per week - the goal is to feed them as quickly and efficiently as possible with minimum use of human voice or touch. Graham said it is also very important for them to see other birds. Mammals do not go through the same process of imprinting that birds do, according to Graham, but they can become “habituated” to humans instead. She said it is easy to tell when an animal has lost its fear of people. Graham divides her time at Center for Wildlife between training interns and volunteers, planning animal releases, administrative tasks, and providing medical assessment and treatment. There is no such thing in

...GRAHAM from page 1 Center in Lynnwood, Wash. and then joined their staff. At PAWS, she had the opportunity to work with species such as bears, coyotes, deer, skunks and eagles. Prior to moving to Maine with her husband approximately seven years ago, she held various positions such as education director and wildlife care technician at the Outer Banks Wildlife Shelter in North Carolina, assistant director and chief medic at a seasonal bird rehabilitation facility run by the Animals in Distress Association of Boise, Idaho, and rehabilitation supervisor at the Wildhaven Ranch in Lake Arrowhead, Calif. While she also has experience working with domestic animals such as dogs, cats and horses, wildlife is what she loves. “Every species is so perfect,” she said. Her deep respect for wildlife was readily apparent as she discussed an essential difference between working with domestic and wild animals. When working with a frightened horse, she explained it’s important to use petting and talking to reassure it. To a wild animal, petting and talking is frightening rather than reassuring because one of the strongest instincts in wildlife is a fear of humans.

In his retirement years, Bob and his son Paul were instrumental in developing and operating Summer Hill RV Park in Wells, where they cultured many extended family relationships and lasting friendships, a legacy that lives on today at the park.

Survivors include his son Paul Littlefield and his wife Betsy of Wells, and two grandsons, Daniel Littlefield of Portland and David Littlefield of Burlington, Vt. While Bob did not want to move from the town that he loved, when it came time to reside in a place where he was well cared for, the family is grateful to the staff at Bradford Court for making Bob feel at home.

Visiting hours will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7 at the Bibber Memorial Chapel. A celebration of Bob’s life will be held 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Wells Congregational Church. A Spring interment will be at Ocean View Cemetery in Wells. Should friends desire, please give to the charity of your choosing or simply exchange a smile and/or a hug with someone near you. Arrangements are in care of Bibber Memorial Chapel, 111 Chapel Rd, Wells.

Graham recommends volunteering as a first step in learning about wildlife rehabilitation. “We can’t function without the volunteers and interns we have here,” she said, adding that they always have a need for more volunteers. Wildlife rehabilitators in Maine need a permit issued through the state’s Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. A federal permit is also required for anyone wishing to work with migratory birds or threatened/ endangered species regulated by the federal government. Graham - who also has a background in theatre and will

The Center has an anesthesia machine and can provide medical treatment such as wound care, suturing, and lab work. They provide care for all native birds and reptiles, and smaller mammals. With the exception of bats, they do not treat rabies vector species such as raccoons, foxes or skunks. Currently, there are approximately 70 mammals, birds and reptiles onsite.
