Step Behind the Scenes of ‘downton abbey’ with rebecca eaton
PBS Executive Producer Rebecca Eaton
KeNNeBuNK – Fans of Masterpiece Theater will get a rare behind-thescenes glimpse of shows like “Upstairs, Downstairs,” “Jane Austen” and the wildly popular “Downton Abbey” when PBS Executive Producer Rebecca Eaton joins River Tree Arts of Kennebunk at The Nonantum Resort. Eaton, who spends her summers in southern Maine, will discuss her upcoming book, “Making of Masterpiece: 25 Years Behind the Scenes of Mas-
terpiece Theater and Mystery!” The book is slated for release in October. During her tenure at PBS, Eaton has produced 27 years of beloved television viewing, masterminding “Masterpiece” and launching an American affection for British dramas that earned her an honorary Order of the British Empire from Queen Elizabeth II. In her impressive career, Eaton has won 31 Primetime Emmy Awards, 15 Peabody Awards, a Golden Globe and two Academy Awards. She was

tions directly to schools and classrooms for educational needs. One of the things Cryer did in her fundraising campaign was to ask Kennebunk Savings Bank to help publicize her DonorsChoose fundraising project. But the bank went one big step further and donated $1,000 towards the laptop purchase. With money received from DonorsChoose and Kennebunk Savings Bank, Cryer was able to purchase seven laptops known as ‘Chromebooks’ and a microphone for use with Skype and recordings. The Chromebooks retail for about $250 each and employ web-based programs
such as Google Docs. Chromebooks require little or no extra program software purchases. Kennebunk Savings Bank Vice-Presidents and Branch Managers Dena Tufts-White and Karyn Scharf Morin visited Cryer’s classroom to meet with students and teacher and see the new machines in use. “This is just another great example of Kennebunk Savings being able to contribute back into the community,” observed Scharf Morin who added, “This is great use of the money for sure.” “It speaks to the passion of See LAPTOP page 27...

Hunger awareness Week events Planned YOrK COuNTY – Hunger Awareness Week will run from May 18 through 24 in five area towns. The week will feature the presentation of a documentary film on hunger, a road race, a concert, and a panel discussion on hunger in our communities and what we can do about it. Biddeford Mayor Alan Casavant is one of about 20 people in Northern York County who have organized this spring to focus on the problem of hunger in the communities of Biddeford, Saco, Old Orchard Beach, Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Of the growing number of children and adults going hungry right now, Casavant said, “In our current economy, more and more people are finding themselves confronted with issues of hunger and poverty. We, as a community, need to not only recognize that the faces of hunger are those of our friends, neighbors and families, but also need to be willing to confront the stigma of poverty and to challenge ourselves to actively lend a helping hand. Being a community demands our attentiveness to those who are struggling to make ends meet.” Casavant will introduce

Paul LePage recognizes May 19 to 25 as National Public Works Week in the State of Maine. Instituted as a public education campaign by the AmeriPhoto at left: At the Old Berwick H istor ica l Societ y’s Count i ng House Museum on Thursday, May 23, at 7 p.m., members will enjoy a performance by troubadour Dave Peloquin following a membership meeting celebrating the community’s 300th anniversary. (courtesy photo)
SOuTH BerWICK– An evening of 18th century entertainment and refreshments is in store for the Old Berwick Historical Society’s membership at Counting House Museum on Thursday evening, May 23. Doors open at 7 p.m. With this year marking the 300th anniversary of the founding of the old town of Berwick in 1713, the annual meeting’s refreshments will be foods local people would have eaten at the time. Board members will prepare such treats as stuffed apples, Shrewsbury cakes and gingerbread. The meeting and concert are open to members of the public who join the Old Berwick Historical Society, which owns the museum. Annual membership is $20 per person, or $30 for a family. Member support provides the basis for the museum and for community local history programming throughout the year. Balladeer Dave Peloquin, a singer, guitarist, and storyteller, will perform popular songs and sea shanties of 18th century New England. Since 1997 he has been singing seasonal holiday music throughout New England. Many know him as the Wandering Christmas Minstrel, or have heard him in concert as lead singer of The New England Christmastide Musicians. A newly improved display, “The Chadbournes and Spencers of 17th and Early 18th Century South Berwick,” will open at the meeting. A new exhibition, “Odd Fellows: Olive Branch Lodge 28,” will also be on view, and the society will present a slide show on local 17th century sites. The Counting House is the Old Berwick Historical Society’s 1832 textile mill building by Quamphegan Falls on the Salmon Falls River. The society’s annual membership meeting begins with refreshments and exhibit viewing at 7 p.m., and will be followed by
the concert. More information is avail-
able by calling 207-384-0000 or at www.oldberwick.org.
can Public Works Association (APWA) in 1960, “National Public Works Week calls attention to the importance of public works in community life. APWA seeks to raise the public’s awareness of public works issues, and to increase confidence in public works employees who are dedicated to improving the quality of life for present and future generations”. This year’s theme, “Because of Public Works,” focuses on the quality of life brought to communities around the world. The Maine Chapter of the APWA will participate in re-
gional and community events where the public can view various equipment used every day to keep our roads and public infrastructure working properly. These events will also give the public an opportunity to speak with public works professionals who take care of roads and infrastructure, and who often work behind the scenes providing services to the community. A display of public works equipment, antique tractors and trucks is planned from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, May 23, at Kittery Trading Post, U.S. Route 1, Kittery. Children’s games and prizes are planned. The York County Snow Plow ‘Road’eo is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon. Drivers will test their plowing skills.

She is survived by two sons, James Dumont and his wife, Barbara, and John Dumont, and by five

Summer Archaeological Field School Registration SOUTH BERWICK – Registration for the Old Berwick Historical Society’s summer archaeology dig has been extended to Saturday, June 15. The program is open to college and upper level high school students, teachers in need of recertification credits, and history buffs of any age who are interested in exploring an area with a rich colonial history. The Old Fields Archaeological Field School begins June 17, and participants can choose any number of weeks throughout the five-week dig. The program will be held Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Participants must be at least 16 years old. Dr. Neill De Paoli will direct excavations on the property of Paula and Harvey Bennett in the section of town known long ago as Old Fields. The focus of the dig is the former dwelling, tavern, and garrison house of Humphrey and Mary Spencer who lived there from c. 1696 until 1727. In 1691, Wabanaki war parties attacked the Spencer family garrison. Participants may sign up for one or more of the five one-week sessions running from June 17 to July 5 and July 15 to 26. Multiple sessions are discounted: a week costs $175, two weeks $325, three weeks $475, four weeks $625, and five weeks $775. To register, applicants must ene, Maggie DuChene, Will Duffy, Jake Greenspan, Susan Hourihan, Clayton Jacques, Parker Johnson, Kristen Jones, Julia Mini, Juliet Moore, Izzy Reis, Mei Salas, Brennan Santaniello, Ben Thut, Marshall White and Sarah Yanofsky.

submit a brief application form with a non-refundable deposit of $100 to the Old Berwick Historical Society by June 15. Forms and more information about the dig and area accommodations are available from De Paoli at 603-766-0561 or ndppquid@ yahoo.com. Checks should be made out to “OBHS” and mailed to: Old Berwick Historical Society, P.O. Box 296, South Berwick, ME 03908. “Participants in 2013 will focus on uncovering a stone structure unearthed last year and try to confirm its association with the late home, tavern, and garrison of early settlers Humphrey and Mary Spencer, who lived here 300 years ago,” said De Paoli. South Berwick has historic roots that reach back to the early 1630s, when a small band of English merchant adventurers established a trading post on the Salmon Falls River and a sawmill on the nearby Great Works River, De Paoli explained. Over the decades that followed, the town of Berwick emerged from
these modest beginnings. With over 35 years of experience as a historical archaeologist, De Paoli has directed archaeological projects in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. He is an adjunct professor at Southern Maine Community College and has devoted most of his career to the study of English settlement and Anglo-Indian and English-French relations in early northern New England. The archaeology project coincides with the Old Berwick Historical Society’s celebration of the anniversary of the founding of Berwick – comprising today’s Berwick, South Berwick and North Berwick -- when it separated from Kittery in 1713. A lecture series on the time period is running throughout this year, supported by funds from the Maine Humanities Council and Kennebunk Savings. More information on the Counting House Museum and all the Old Berwick Historical Society’s programs is available at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (207) 384-0000.

~ Spring Home & Garden ~ Managing Difficult Yard Situations Many homeowners aim for a picture-perfect lawn complete with rolling acres of soft, green grass. But Mother Nature may have other things in mind, providing homeowners with less-than-stellar growing conditions for their lawns, plants and other foliage. Frustration can mount when a yard is muddy, is especially shady or has soil that doesn’t seem to grow a thing. In such instances, homeowners may have to go the extra mile to get the yard they desire. Irrigation issues Improper drainage or low-lying areas in a yard may contribute to a muddy mess. Soil that is inhospitable for grass also may end up causing muddy patches because the grass simply does not grow. In some cases, remedying a muddy yard is easy and inexpensive. Some homeowners find that tilling the soil and amending it with a fiber mulch helps to absorb extra water and make the conditions better for lawn seeds to sprout. This also helps to aerate compacted soil that can hinder grass growth. Adding soil fill also may help to level low-lying areas that can
be puddling. Some homeowners find that they need to do a little more work and spend some more money to fix irrigation issues. Installing a draining system or having the property sloped to draw water away can sometimes be done by a homeowner but is often best left to a professional. You may need to dig trenches, and the property may need to be

regraded to make a difference. Sandy soil Grass and other plants may not grow well with sandy or clay soil. Again, amending the soil is one way to remedy the problem.

~ Spring Home & Garden ~ ...YARD from page 9 nance the lawn needs. Digging down several inches and adding nutrient-rich filler soil will help create conditions that are better for growing. Those who are interested in planting vegetables could opt for raised garden beds above the challenging soil. Shade Sometimes a yard is problematic because of the amount of sunshine it receives. Too much sunshine can scald certain grasses, while inadequate sunshine may result in bare patches where grass won’t grow. If cost is no object, removing or planting trees to establish better growing conditions could be an option. However, today
there are many grass blends that are tailored toward specific sunlight scenarios. Homeowners may find that low-light blends will grow better in shady areas. For those who are finding no luck with grass blends, it may just be necessary to think creatively. Plant shade-loving
plants, such as ferns or ground cover, where the grass won’t take. Design the landscape so it looks intentional. Flagstone and slate placed in certain areas also may mask temperamental growing areas. There are different options for managing various situations in the yard that can make growing lawn or other plants challenging. If projects are difficult, it could be smart to call in a professional.
