50-Year Anniversary Commemorates USS Thresher By Adam Marletta Contributing Writer KITTERY – Wednesday, April 10, marks the 50-year anniversary of the worst naval disaster in U.S. history: The sinking of The USS Thresher. On that tragic date in 1963, the nuclear-powered submarine sank during a routine deep-diving test off the coast of Cape Cod. All 129 crewmen died. Personnel at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, where the Thresher was built, plan to acknowledge the 50th anniversary with a memorial service on Sunday. The memorial includes a 129-foot flagpole placed in the Kittery Memorial Circle in honor of the officers, contractors and shipyard workers who perished aboard the ship.
A sleek, state-of-the-art naval sub designed specifically for Cold War confrontation, The USS Thresher (SSN-593) was built to dive deeper and cruise faster than any previous nuclear vessel of its class. The 278-foot submarine cost $45 million and was launched on July 9, 1960. Mrs. Frederick B. Warder – wife of the famous Pa-
cific War skipper – sponsored the ship. Prior to sinking, Thresher, accompanied by the submarine rescue ship Skylark, was conducting post-overhaul exercises off the coast of Cape Cod, Mass. Fifteen minutes into the deep-diving exercise Thresher’s crew attempted to radio Skylark about technical

competition of the 2013 Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design Contest. The judging was held recently at the Washington County Community College in Calais. Desisto, a senior at Marshwood High School, submitted an acrylic painting of a wood duck. Her entry was chosen from the 449 received from 15 schools and groups throughout Maine. The Best of Show artwork will now compete in the national contest on April 19. Her artwork will be included in an exhibit that will tour the United States for the coming year. The contest is organized each year by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It is part of a program that teaches students in kindergarten through 12th grades about wetlands and waterfowl conservation. It is modeled after the Federal Duck Stamp Contest for adult artists. Students create original artwork showing North American ducks, geese or swans in their natural habitats.

Local Wine Dinner Inspired by Trip to Italy OGUNQUIT – A wine dinner that marks the culmination of a month-long saga of travel and discovery up and down the culinary mecca that is Italy will be hosted on Thursday, April 11, at Five-O Shore Road in Ogunquit. In late February and con-
awards are given out in four age categories. The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program was created in 1989. The art contest started in 1990 with 3,000 students from California participating. Today about 30,000 students throughout the United States, American Samoa, and the U.S. Virgin Islands participate in the Junior Duck Stamp Contest annually. The first place national winning design is used to create the Federal Junior Duck Stamp. The Junior Duck Stamps cost $5 each and proceeds go to support environmental education by providing awards and scholarships for students, teachers, and schools. (courtesy photo)

problems. But the only message Skylark’s crew received was garbled static, followed by a shriek described as “air rushing into an air tank.” They were unable to reconnect with Thresher. Subsequent military reports attribute the ship’s sinking to a poorly crafted piping system
which came unsealed. The resulting burst of seawater caused the engine system to shut down and the ship to implode. The loss of life, coupled with the destruction of a seemingly invincible Navy vessel during the height of Cold War anxiety, left America stunned. In the wake of the disaster, the Navy implemented a series of modern efficiency protocols and improvements to ensure the tragedy is not repeated. Portsmouth High School will hold a private memorial service to honor the 129 crewmen – 47 of which were from Maine – on Saturday. The event is expected to draw over 700 families. A public ceremony is planned for the following day, Sunday, April 7, at the Kittery Memorial Circle. During that time, the memorial flagpole will be unveiled. (courtesy photo)

Finally, you have an option other than drugs or surgery. New research in a treatment called “low level laser therapy,” or “cold laser,” is having a profound effect on patients suffering with knee pain.

Cold laser therapy has been tested for 40 years, had over 2000 papers published on it, and shown to aid in damaged tissue regeneration, decreasing inflammation, relief of pain, and boosting the immune system. This means that there is a good chance cold laser therapy could be your knee pain solution, allowing you to live a more active lifestyle.

Mad Science Workshops Presented at Kennebunk Elementary
KENNEBUNK – Every student in all 23 classrooms at Kennebunk Elementary School recently participated in on-site Mad Science workshops, funded entirely though local grants. An initial grant from the Lego Children’s Fund was written by former RSU 21 Development Officer Stephanie Brady. This initial grant provided enough funding to bring a school science assembly to KES. It was an additional grant request, funded by the Education Foundation of the Kennebunks and Arundel, which allowed for a programmatic “upgrade,” bringing each classroom, kindergarten through third grade, its own hands-on, Mad Science workshop. These science workshops,
tailored to the individual developmental level of children in each grade, transform laboratory science into interactive learning experiences for children. Mad Science franchises exist in all 50 states and in 25 countries across five continents. Mad Science of Maine’s mission is “to spark the imagination and curiosity of children through hands-on science programs that instill a clear understanding of what science is really about and how it affects the world around us.” Kindergarten students experienced the “Human Body” program. Kindergarten student Will Eagleson said, “We listened to our heart, and we learned that our brains are grayish brown.” Will’s classmate, Theo Pow, added, “We learned how the

Down the road we can revisit those Mad Science activities as a way to reinforce more learning.” Students in first grade learned “All about Animals” and “Photosynthesis” was the topic explored in second-grade classrooms. “Mad Science was able to take the students understanding to the next level and certainly gave them a head start as we move into spring and start growing our own plants,” reported second grade teacher Sean Hanson. Students in third grade received the most intense program with individual classroom workshops in which students learned about and practiced “Scientific Method.” Third grade teacher

~ News ~ Wells Junior Wins Silver Key Award â€œCelebrateâ€™ Art Exhibit on Display WELLS â€“ Wells High School junior Madilin â€œMaddyâ€? Pagliarulo was named the recipient of a Silver Key award in the digital media category of the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for 2013. Pagliaruloâ€™s winning entry, the result of an assignment in AP studio art class, is an example of an ancient Oriental, Hindu and Buddhist visual art form known as mandala, a duplication of a manipulated image multiple times with the resulting duplicates formed into a geometric, often circular, design. Mandalas often feature a deity and symbolize the cosmos. â€œIt is an excellent work, a beautiful piece nicely balanced with the color scheme,â€? said Pagliaruloâ€™s art teacher, Vanessa White-Capelluti, who said she was impressed with the neutrality, warm colors and texture of the final image. Pagliaruloâ€™s image began as a digital photograph of a large inactive wasp hive located at the front of her familyâ€™s home. Before the original photo had been taken, the wasp hive had been sprayed with pesticide by Pagliaruloâ€™s father, leaving the remaining wasps in and around the hive with the appearance of being frozen in time. A section was cut from the

original picture then manipulated into an image that was duplicated many times and formed into a circle for the end result. Pagliarulo, a second-year AP studio art student, said she wants to continue creating visual art, including illustrations, drawings and body tattooing. Silver Key and Gold Key are placement levels in the regional portion of the Scholastic Art & Writing contest which is open to seventh- through 12th-grade students. Maddy Pagliarulo is the daughter of Susan and Daniel Pagliarulo of Wells. (photo by Reg Bennett)

YORK – The York Public Library will
Wesley McNair, Maine Poet Laureate (photo by David Turner)
host an evening of poetry at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, as a stop on the journey of the Maine Poetry Express, an initiative of Maine Poet Laureate Wesley McNair and the statewide literary arts organization, the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance. The Maine Poetry Express, a metaphoric train, is traveling to a series of 14 stops throughout the state over the next few months, bringing together Maine poets and townspeople for shared readings
that combine poetry with testimonies about the literary form’s relevance to the lives and concerns of all people. The primary goal of the Maine Poetry Express, McNair said, is to show that poetry belongs not only to literary specialists but to all of us. The “conductor,” of the York stop is Library Trustee Susan Yorston. On board will be Maine poets Richard Foerster, Megan Grumbling, and McNair, Maine Poet Laureate.
