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.

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

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.

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@ 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, 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

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.

Deer-Proofing Your Garden Creating a beautiful and bountiful garden is a popular pastime for people all across the country. It is important to keep in mind that aesthetically appealing plants may be appetizing to area wildlife, including deer. Those who do not want their gardens to turn into all-youcan-eat buffets for deer, rabbits and other wild animals can take a more proactive approach to gardening. Deer are opportunists who will no doubt see your garden as a salad bar ripe with all of their favorite foods. As housing developments continue to encroach on the natural habitats of deer and other animals, these animals are

becoming more visible. Deer may not be able to forage for food effectively in their smaller, natural surroundings, or they may become accustomed to the “easy pickings” they find in neighborhood yards. Either way, you may encounter a deer in or around your area. Keeping deer at bay involves some work and maintenance on the part of a homeowner. There are safe and humane methods to repelling deer, or at least blocking access to the plants worth protecting. Here are the main ways to deer-proof a garden.

dining on your garden. Keep in mind that deer can jump fences that are quite tall, but they have to be especially motivated to jump an eight-foot-tall fence. Still, they tend to be weary about scaling a fence when they cannot see what is on the other side. Therefore, if you are fencing out deer, choose a fence that camouflages the garden well and completely encloses the area to be protected. If you do not want the fence to be solid, consider putting stakes or thorny plants within the garden so that the deer will hesitate to jump into the garden.

Fence It Fences are one way to deter deer from entering a yard and

Scare Them Deer are naturally skittish around people, but over time they can become quite complacent around human beings. Once a deer decides that something will not present a threat, the deer can adapt to its presence. Motion-activated devices may not work, nor the presence

~ Spring Home & Garden ~ ...DEER from page 14 of pets. Predator urine is typically an effective way at keeping deer at bay. Bottled coyote urine can be quite effective, although human urine may work as well. Reapplying the product weekly around the plants is a good idea. repel the deer There are many organic or chemically based products on the market that deer may find offensive to the taste or smell. Hot pepper, sulfur and eggs or even the use of soapy water have been successful in certain instances. The use of blood meal or even human hair around the garden may repel the deer and keep them on a different foraging path. However, remember that any deer that is very hungry may ignore unpleasant tastes or smells for a quick bite. Change Plants If other food sources are available, there are some species of plants and trees that deer will avoid. Filling your garden with these plants can help you maintain a beautiful, albeit untasty, environment for deer. When planting annuals, select among: Alyssum, Begonias, Calendula, Celosia, Dianthus, Foxglove, Geraniums, Parsley, Poppy, Snapdragons In terms of perennials, plant

business & finance Lebanon student earns Paid internship BaNGOr – It’s rare these days for a college student to find a paid internship, but a junior at the New England School of Communi-

four Things Parents should Know before Paying for college From $20,000 to $65,000 a year – that’s the tuition cost for one year of college, says John McDonough, a money expert who helps retirees and parents plan for their families’ futures. “For the 2012–2013 academic year, the average cost for an in-state public college is $22,261. A moderate budget for a private college averaged $43,289,” says McDonough, CEO of Studemont Group College Funding Solutions, “But for elite schools, we’re talking about three times the cost of your local state school. Either way, your kid’s higher education can easily shoot into six figures after four years.” Along with worrying about rising tuition prices, parents also fear for their own futures if their retirement savings are drained by children’s college costs, McDonough says. Only 14 percent, for example, are very confident they’ll have the money to live comfortably in retirement, he says, citing a 2012 survey by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. “Families feel they’re faced with conflicting goals, but there are numerous ways to pay for college while investing in your future retirement,” says McDonough, who offers insights for parents to keep in mind while planning for their child’s education: * The ROI of a college education: At a time when so many American families are financially strapped, college is an especially stressful topic

because parents know higher learning will help their kids succeed. College graduates earn 84 percent than those with only a high school diploma, according to Georgetown’s Center on Education and the Workforce. Here is how earning breaks down over one’s life time, based on education: a doctoral degree-holder will earn $3.3 million over a lifetime; $2.3 million is estimated for a college graduate; those with only a high school diploma can expect $1.3 million. * Move retirement assets to qualify for grants: Most parents know about the 529 savings account, but that’s not necessarily the best or only option. Reallocating your retirement assets, such as 401(k)s, can better position a child to qualify for grants and scholarships. This legal and ethical maneuvering may be the single most important factor when considering how to pay for college. * Know your student’s strengths and weaknesses: Consider independent and objective analysis of your future college student. Assessment might include a personality profile and a detailed search for a future career. Also think about a more nuts-and-bolts approach, including scholarship eligibility, SAT and ACT prep courses, review of admissions essays and an indepth analysis of chances for enrollment in a student’s top four choices of colleges. * Make a checklist of financial aid forms: In order to maximize a fair price of higher education, remember there is plenty See PARENTS page 18...

cations in Bangor has managed to snatch one, up along with a $3,000 scholarship for next semester. TrishaValliere of Lebanon is one of just two post-secondary education students to receive a 2013 Direct Marketing Scholarship from the New England Direct Marketing Association Foundation or NEDMA. “It is a pretty neat internship. It’s through NEDMA, which is a group made up of people who all own their own business. One is a copywriter, one has their own print shop,” explained Valliere. “The group got together to create an organization to help students.”

Valliere, studying marketing communications, recently met the NEDMA group in Boston. “During the interview they gave you a set of questions about your past experiences in marketing. I had my portfolio with me with some photography pieces. I had a lot of graphic design pieces I had for NESCom, which is what I do for my work-study job. And I had direct mail pieces in there (that I made),” said Valliere. NEDMA sends scholarship packets to colleges and universities throughout New England each year. Nancy Roberts, the director of the marketing communications pro-

gram at NESCom is thrilled Valliere stood out among all the other scholarship candidates. “It’s been a joy to see Trisha’s confidence grow as she has gone through this process. I’m so pleased that she is being recognized for her hard work and dedication to her education,” said Roberts. And although the details of her actual job description are still being finalized, Valliere is a woman who knows exactly what she wants out of her internship. “I want my internship in branding and graphic design. That would be good,” she said.

saving Money can Reduce stress and improve Overall Health Financial concerns, including not having enough money to pay bills or worrying that money will run out, are a leading cause of stress. Finding new ways to save money can help reduce these feelings of stress and improve quality of life. According to the YouGov poll for the Institute of Financial Planning and National Savings and Investments in the United Kingdom, roughly two-thirds of people worry about money. An American Psychological Association poll indicates 80 percent of Americans state the economy is a significant cause of stress, while 83 percent of women and 78 percent of men are stressed about money. Stress can contribute to a variety of health ailments, including anxiety, depression and cardiovascular problems. Stress can also worsen preex-

isting conditions. Finding ways to reduce stress may lead to a longer, happier life. One way to reduce stress is to take control of your finances so that money issues do not compound stress. Finding a way to save more money might do the trick. * Examine the contents of your storage unit. Storage units can help people who have to temporarily house items between moves or during home renovations. But storage units can be a waste of money when they’re used as a place to store clutter. Spending $100 or more per month to store seldom-used items can quickly add up to a large amount of money. Visit the storage unit to determine if you are storing items you have not used in some time. You may be able to switch to a smaller, less expensive unit, or you may realize you don’t need the unit at all. * Take inventory of your

Have you been forced to take a large deductible or wind deductible? At Sevigney-Lyons, we excel in insuring Ocean Front Homes from Seabrook to Bar Harbor. Whether it’s a weekly rental on the beach or the family compound on the harbor, we have the program to help better protect your investment while keeping premiums, and deductibles, low.

unused gift cards before your next shopping trip. Gift cards are a financial windfall for some people and a convenient go-to gift for others. Simply offer a gift card and the recipient can go on a shopping spree of his or her choosing. But unless they are used shortly after they’re received, gift cards easily can be forgotten or lost. Recipients may forget about them after they’ve been stashed in a mail drawer or purse that has been retired to the back of the closet. Before your next shopping excursion, check to see if you have any gift cards that might save you money. * Stop wasting food. The National Resources Defense Council says the average American discards as much as $43 worth of food each month. That amounts to more than $500 per year, which is a large portion of the food budget to simply toss in the trash. Store foods so that they are easily visible in the refrigerator so that lettuce doesn’t turn brown or you forget about those strawberries that are now covered in fuzz. If you are prone to produce amnesia, simply buying frozen vegetables can help prolong shelf life and save you money. * Put loose change to good use. While not much can be purchased for under $1 these days, that doesn’t make loose change worthless. Coins can quickly accumulate and add up to big bucks. According to the coin-counting company Coinstar, across the country there may be approximately $10 bil-

lion in coins just sitting around unused. Keep a bank or jar by the entryway to your home so you won’t forget to save all of that loose change each day. When the jar is filled, roll it up and bring it to the bank or rely on a coin-counting machine at your bank. * Stop losing receipts. Who hasn’t delegated an illfitting item to the back of the closet because of a lost receipt? Missing receipts often deter people from going to a store to return or replace items that do not fit or did not work out. Instead of being stuck with a piece of useless clothing, be mindful of receipts, always opting to have them put into your wallet instead of just leaving them in the bag. New smartphone

apps enable you to scan and store receipts if you’re prone to losing them. Also, some retailers track purchases, particularly among loyal customers -- those who present a card or key ring bar code to scan -- and can easily look up prior purchases without a receipt. * Make payments on time.

business & finance Time Your Move Right to save Money

Buying a new home is the most expensive purchase a person is likely to make in his or her lifetime. It also can be one of the more stressful. The Employee Relocation Council states that moving is the third most stressful event in life, following death and divorce. But a welltimed move can reduce stress and save money. Moving during certain times of the year can result in considerable savings. Moving during the summer, when children are out of school and the weather is nice, can make a move more manageable. Keep in mind that because late spring and summer are the peak moving seasons, they also tend to be more expensive. Many moving companies and truck rental agencies will charge a premium if you use their ser-

vices during the summer. Furthermore, crews may change in the summer when students on vacation could fill in for regular, more experienced movers. High prices are not only reserved for those who buy a new house during the spring and summer. Renters may find spring and summer is also the peak season for rentals. Many apartment managers can attest that the dates between June 2 and Aug. 30 are quite busy in terms of apartment turnover. College students are more likely to move as soon as the academic year ends, and many landlords plan leases to expire in the summer months to ensure that re-renting places will be easier thanks to a flooded apartment market. According to Apartment Wiz, a Houston-based apartment locating service, although there might be greater apartment availabil-

ity during the warm-weather months, it also means greater competition between prospective tenants. That greater competition can drive up prices. But apartments are harder to fill in the fall or at the onset of winter. That’s because many people do not want the hassle of moving once school has started or the weather has chilled. Landlords who are stuck paying utilities and advertising fees for vacant apartments are far more likely to negotiate rent prices, lease terms and even security deposits during the winter in an effort to fill the apartment quickly. People sitting with homes on the market are also more likely to negotiate during cooler months when foot traffic has fizzled out. That can make shopping for a home in the fall advantageous to homebuyers. Here are some other tips to reduce stress and save money when moving into a new home or apartment.

* Schedule a fall or winter move. The American Moving and Storage Association says half of all moves occur during onethird of the year -- between the beginning of May and Labor Day. Beat the rush by moving outside of these dates. * Get an early start. Many people underestimate the amount of time it takes to actually move their belongings. Try to schedule a moving company to come very early in the morning to give you ample time to pack up the truck and unpack at your new home.

* Move mid-week. Weekends are a prime time for truck rentals and moving companies. Pick a Tuesday or a Wednesday to move, and you’re much more likely to find an available moving service (even during peak moving months); you may even be able to negotiate a lower rate. * Pick a mid-month moving date. Many people move at the beginning of the month when leases are up or after mortgage payments are made. Fewer people move in the middle of the month, so you might find more affordable moving deals if you can wait a few extra weeks.

SMMC to Offer Free Skin Screenings BIDDEFORD – Do you sunburn easily or have freckles? Have you ever seen a dermatologist? If you are over 60 and do not have a regular dermatologist, you may attend a free skin screening on Monday, May 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. at SMMC PrimeCare Physicians located at 13 Industrial Park Road in Saco. To schedule an appointment, call 877-831-2129. Space is limited and patients who have

never been screened by a dermatologist will be given priority. This free skin screening will consist of a qualified health professional performing a thorough visual exam and providing useful prevention tips. According to the National Cancer Institute, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. The two most common types are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer, which usually form

on the head, face, neck, hands and arms. Another type of skin cancer, melanoma, is more dangerous but less common. Anyone can get skin cancer, but it is more common in people who spend a lot of time in the sun or have been sunburned; have light-colored skin, hair and eyes; have a family member with skin cancer; or are over age 50. Early detection is important and treatment is more likely

to work well when cancer is found early. If not treated, some types of skin cancer cells can spread to other tissues and organs. This screening is sponsored by Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute, Southern Maine Medical Center, Mercy OncologyHematology Center, Greater Portland Area Dermatologists and the American Cancer Society.

Plus, one in three people suffer from some form of insomnia during their lifetime, offers the organization Better Sleep for Life. In some instances, lack of sleep or too much sleep might be indicative of a medical condition, but it could just be related to poor sleep hygiene and an uncomfortable sleeping environment. Making some changes could make all the difference. * Start with your mattress. You will spend between seven to 10 hours in your bed each and every night. An uncomfortable mattress could be an underlying factor in your sleep problems. If your bed is several years old, it could pay to invest in a new mattress and box spring. If you sleep with your spouse and your bed is too small, upgrading to a larger size could provide the room you need. If you cannot afford a new mattress, buying a mattress topper in memory

cozy retreat. Your bedroom should be a relaxing sanctuary. Fill it with cozy cushions and pillows. Make sure the room is clean and clutter-free. Relaxing blues and purples can be soothing colors to use in decorating, and the use of lavender essential oil could also add to the relaxing environment. * Avoid distractions. When setting up your bedroom, do not fill it with electronics, such as a computer, tablet and television. These devices could contribute to wakefulness and actually impede your ability to get the rest you need. * Keep cool. A cool bedroom is key to drifting off to sleep. Sweating and overheating can keep you awake, so drop the temperature down at night and dress lightly for bed. You want to feel comfortable and not too hot or cold. If sleeplessness becomes a chronic problem and is not alleviated by changing the sleeping environment, visit a doctor.

foam could mask any problems for the time being. * Balance light and dark. In order to trigger sleepiness at the right time, it is essential to get at least 30 minutes of natural sunlight each day during the morning or afternoon. In the evening, begin dimming the lights to trigger the body’s natural internal clock and stimulate the production of the natural hormone melatonin, which relaxes the body into sleep. Keep a dark bedroom -- invest in blackout curtains if need be. * Consider white noise. Giving your brain a noise to associate with relaxing sleep can help you drift off more quickly. White noise can also mask other sounds that may distract sleep, such as traffic outside or a partner snoring. White noise can come from a special alarm clock that provides soothing sounds of rain or waves. Many people find running a fan in the bedroom provides the right amount of noise and also helps circulate air throughout the room. * Make the bedroom a

Atria Kennebunk Celebrates National Nurses Week

Treating Toenail Fungus Naturally When it comes to grooming, few conditions draw the ire of men and women as much as toenail fungus. Eradicating toenail fungus can be very difficult, and even the most effective toenail fungus treatments can leave men and women susceptible to re-infection. Though pharmaceutical treatments have proven effective at targeting toenail fungus in two-thirds of patients, such medications have been associated with some potentially harmful side effects, including liver damage, and many antifungal drugs are very toxic. The body’s reaction to medications aimed at treating toenail fungus can be tricky, limiting the drug’s effectiveness while simultaneously increasing the risk that men and women may succumb to other ailments. The liver tends to recognize certain toenail fungus medications as toxins, which can lead to liver damage that may produce far more drastic consequences than toenail fungus. Because of the body’s tendency to recognize certain treatments as toxic, many men and women have begun to seek alternative ways to address their toenail fungus. For example, anti-fungal nail pol-

ishes are considered safe alternatives to traditional medications. However, these topical drugs often must be applied regularly for up to one year before they produce any results. In addition, such treatments can be harmful to men and women with sensitive skin, potentially resulting in rashes and redness. Laser therapy is another alternative to toenail fungus medications. Studies have shown that laser therapy has successfully eradicated toenail fungus in roughly 33 percent of patients who underwent the therapy.

However, laser therapy can cost as much as $1,000 per treatment, and some patients have suffered burns on the nails and skin during the procedure. The risks associated with medications and other toenail fungus treatments have led many men and women to seek natural treatments that won’t be accompanied by potentially unhealthy and painful side effects. For example, phenolic antiseptic powder packs a potentially powerful punch against toenail fungus without the negative side effects of other treat-

Health & Fitness How to Find Time for Exercise

Many men and women cite hectic schedules as the primary reason they fail to get enough exercise. Commitments to work and family may dominate your schedule, but daily exercise can drastically reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes and help reduce stress. Because exercise can vastly improve quality of life and even life expectancy, it’s imperative that even the busiest men and women find time to exercise several times per week. The following are a handful of ways to do just that. * Transform your com-

mute. Many men and women find their commutes to be a significant waste of time. But instead of sitting in traffic or napping on public transportation, consider transforming your daily commute into an exercise regimen. If you live close to your office, ride your bicycle to work each day rather than driving or taking the bus or train. If that’s not an option, avoid working during your commute so you aren’t stressing out on your way into or home from the office. Instead, spend your commute listening to an audiobook in the car or reading a book or watching a movie if you take public trans-

properties today, phenolic antiseptic powder has been used to effectively treat toenail fungus without producing any of the negative side effects of other treatments. Simply apply the powder to the infected area after a foot bath or mix a few drops of water with a teaspoon of powder to form a paste that can be applied to the toenail as often as necessary. In addition to addressing

toenail fungus, there are other ways men and women can improve the appearance of their feet. * Cast out calluses and corns. Calluses and corns appear when dead skin builds up along the heels and toes and bony areas of the feet. While unsightly, calluses and corns can be easily eliminated with a pumice stone or foot file used immediately after showering. Consult a po-

diatrist if your calluses or corns are especially pesky and difficult to remove. * Address ingrown toenails. Athletes and dancers tend to suffer the most from ingrown toenails, a potentially painful condition wherein the toenail grows into the surrounding skin. Ingrown toenails are often a byproduct of the toes rubbing tightly against the shoe during physical activity. Soaking feet in an Epsom salt bath twice a day for 15 minutes can reduce pain and inflammation, while cutting toenails straight across can reduce the likelihood that the nails will grown into the skin. * Wear footwear that fits. Wearing footwear that’s too small or restrictive can increase your risk of ingrown toenails and hammertoe, a deformity that occurs when the toes become claw-like. Ill-fitting footwear can cause hammertoes or aggravate pre-existing hammertoes, while also increasing the risk of friction between the toes and the interior of the shoes, potentially causing ingrown toenails. When shopping for shoes, always find footwear that fits, even if it means sacrificing style for comfort.

making the most of that dusty fitness equipment in the basement is all that stands between you and a much healthier lifestyle. Once you get used to exercising in the early morning hours, you might realize just how much more energy you have throughout the day and how little you miss that extra sleep in the morning. * Forgo happy hour for workout hour. The days when professionals would finish off a workday with a few drinks at a nearby tavern are largely a thing of the past, but some professionals still like to indulge in one or two alcoholic beverages at the end of the workday.

ductivity will benefit from your midday workout. * Get up early. Men and women who workout in the morning often rave about the impact such workouts have on the rest of their days. While it might not be easy to rise when it’s still dark out, waking up as little as 30 minutes before you normally would can work wonders. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend adults get at least two hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, every week and some muscle-strengthening activities that focus on all the major muscle groups on two or more days per week. So setting your alarm 30 minutes earlier and

portation. Use your commute as an opportunity to exercise, ease into your day or unwind after a long day rather than extending the workday. * Make the most of your lunch hour. Many working professionals are aware that a big lunch in the middle of the day can drain them of energy and make the afternoon crawl. So instead of indulging in a big lunch, use your lunch hour to squeeze in a workout. If your company has an on-site fitness facility, visit it during your lunch hour. If not, walk around the campus during lunch instead of sitting at your desk. Exercising during your lunch hour is a great way to squeeze in a workout, and chances are your afternoon pro-

Goodall, SMMC Earn Top Score for Hospital Safety BIddeFOrd/SaNFOrd – Goodall Hospital and Southern Maine Medical Center (SMMC) recently announced they have both been honored with an “A” Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit run by employers and other large purchasers of health benefits. The A score was awarded in the latest update to the Hospital Safety ScoreSM, the A, B, C, D or F scores assigned to U.S. hospitals based on preventable medical errors, injuries, accidents, and infections. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety and is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families. Of the 20 Maine hospi-

tals surveyed by The Leapfrog Group, Goodall and SMMC were among 16 to receive the “A” ranking. The results put Maine first in the nation for hospital safety, followed by Massachusetts. “Ensuring the well-being of patients in our care is a top priority at Goodall,” said Goodall President and CEO Patsy Aprile. “Our staff is dedicated to providing high quality health care and we are gratified that The Leapfrog Group has recognized this commitment with an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Score rating for patient safety.” “Patients entrust us with their health and safety when they choose SMMC,” said SMMC President and CEO Ed McGeachey. “Earning an ‘A’ Hospital Safety Score rating for patient safety from The Leapfrog Group is a testament to our com-

If that’s your modus operandi but you bemoan your lack of time to get to the gym, then say goodbye to happy hour in favor of working out at the gym. Working out after work is a healthier way to relieve stress than having a few drinks, and choosing to work out instead of going out for drinks is a great way to trim your waistline. Daily exercise can drastically improve your quality of life while significantly reducing your risk for potentially deadly diseases. And even the busiest men and women can find time to exercise every day when motivated to do so.

~ News ~ Pumpkinman Triathlon to Benefit Great Works After-School Program SOUTH BERWICK – The Pumpkinman Triathlon Festival recently named the Marshwood Great Works School (MGWS) as its charity partner for 2013. Funds raised through Pumpkinman’s charity entry program will be delivered to MGWS, allowing the school to provide free after-school programming for its 340 fourth- and fifth-grade students. The Great Works School, which serves the communities of South Berwick and Eliot, is dedicated to providing its students with opportunities beyond the classroom. Pumpkinman will support the school by allowing it to provide all of its after-school programs at no cost to the students and their families. Kat Donatello, Pumpkinman race director, stated, “Through the opportunities provided and experiences gained by the students through these programs, the communities of South Berwick and Eliot will benefit greatly.” She added, “We are thrilled to partner with MGWS and fully support the school as it encourages its students to remain active and engage in positive social interactions.” Jerry Burnell, MGWS prin-

cipal and Pumpkinman athlete, commented, “Our goal is to offer a variety of activities that will excite many different students. With Pumpkinman’s support we are able to provide an expanded offering of opportunities to our students.” The offerings at MGWS are wide-ranging. In the last year, with the help of Pumpkinman, the school has added options such as cross country skiing, hiking club, “Jump, Hop, and Exercise” club, archery, floor hockey, chess club, dance, and walking club to its selection of free after-school activities. There are no tryouts or cuts for these programs and about 25 students participate in each activity. “Pumpkinman has provided an opportunity for hundreds of students to be involved in fun and healthy activities,” said Burnell. “Being a public school, our funding is limited. As a result, the options for our students would be limited if it were not for the the funding provided by Kat Donatello and the Pumpkinman Triathlon Festival.” Since its inception in 2007, the Pumpkinman Triathlon Festival has awarded and donated over $1/4 million back to the communities in Southern

Maine. The Festival which takes place on Sept. 7 and 8, hosts 1,100 multisport athletes and 2,000 spectators.

Cryer was excited to learn of that fact “because (concept mapping) is a real-world business skill” that her students are becoming familiar with at just 8 years of age. The addition of the new laptops in Cryer’s classroom allows two students to share a computer. Cryer has a goal to narrow that ratio so that someday each student can be assigned a computer for individual use. Cryer has worked with before and is appreciative of all donations, including one from Littlefield Concrete in Wells and especially one from a student who donated his weekly allowance.

Students Visit Historic Schoolhouse

Wind Quintet Performs for Kennebunk Students

The Portland Symphony Orchestra’s Wind Quintet takes to the stage to perform for youngsters in RSU 21. (courtesy photo)

KeNNeBuNK – The Portland Symphony Orchestra’s Wind Quintet visited Sea Road School recently and presented an educational program to all third- through fifthgraders in Regional School Unit (RSU) 21. The musicians pre-

sented two KinderKonzerts at Kennebunk Elementary school prior to their visit to Sea Road School. The PSO is committed to reaching out to the community in new and meaningful ways. The KinderKonzerts are designed for

prekindergarten through secondgrade students. The educational manager of the PSO, Heather Sumner, is developing a community program for third through eighth grades. The wind quintet’s visit was part of the evolution of this new

elIOT – Second-graders from Eliot Elementary School culminated a study of the town’s history with a field trip to Schoolhouse No. 8. Members of the Eliot Historical Society welcomed the children and guided them in assuming various roles for the day. After former society president Dennis Lentz, welcomed the children, the school mistress, Janette Paul, rang the hand bell, calling the children to line up, girls in one line, boys in another. School began with the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of “America” while the mistress played the pump organ. programming. The musicians are using their experience and the school’s feedback to guide future community youth programs. For more information on educational programming, visit the PSO’s website

After Paul Johnson told the children how the school was restored by members of the society, Mrs. Paul explained the furnishings, such as the children’s desks with inkwells, ink bottles, the dipper used for drinks and the roller towel for drying hands. Cindy Lentz discussed artifacts placed in the showcase by Julie Johnson. Sally Hartford surprised the children with a gingerbread boy or girl cookie for each. Schoolhouse No. 8 was built in 1841 as one of the nine oneroom schools used by Eliot over the years. It has been completely restored by the society and is the only one-room school left in Eliot that is open to the public. Anyone wishing to visit the school, located on Greenwood Street, is welcome. The visit is free. Because it is locked when not in use, arrangements must be made by calling 439-2542 or 439-2404. A society member will open the school and explain its history and features.

May and June Most Common Months for Car-Moose Collisions

AUGUSTA – The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and MaineDOT are asking all drivers to take extra precautions during May and June, as these are the most frequent months for vehicle-moose collisions. “We want to keep motorists safe during this time of year,” said Gov. Paul R. LePage. “We urge drivers to be vigilant, especially during periods of low light, and to give themselves enough time to react if they do see a moose in the roadway.” May and June are the most common months for these collisions due to a combination of factors, including calving time, weather and salt. Cows give birth in May so will drive off yearlings that were born the previous May, leaving many young moose alone for the first time. “People should be careful all year, but May and June are definitely the high points for carmoose collisions,” IFW Moose Biologist Lee Kantar said. “This is when you see immature moose wandering around, unsure of themselves,” Kantar said. “It’s not hard for them to get in trouble.”

After a winter of eating browse, moose often travel more when the weather warms up and greens and other food sources become available to them again. Sodium is also an important part of a moose’s diet, so moose are drawn to roadsides where they can find salt run-offs. Nearly 90 percent of vehicle-moose collisions occur between dusk and dawn, when moose move around more and when it is especially hard to see their dark coloring. A moose’s tall stature also means you won’t typically see their eyes illuminated in your car’s headlights as you sometimes do with deer. DOT officials caution that drivers who do see a moose in a roadway, should stop, stay in their vehicle and give it time to get away. Vehicle-moose collisions can happen anywhere in the state. To minimize your chances of being involved in a collision with a moose, take these steps: Reduce your speed after dark; Use high beams whenever possible; and Drivers are also reminded to always wear a seat belt.

AARP Maine Seeks Award Nominees PORTLAND -AARP Maine announced recently that the organization is seeking nominations for its 2013 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors individuals who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members. The annual award is named after AARP’s founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, who founded AARP in 1958 at the age of 73. “Volunteerism is clearly a new way of looking at retirement for older Americans,” said Greg Cross, AARP Maine Community Outreach Director. “Many are finding that they want to remain active and involved and that volunteerism fulfills this need and the desire to help others. Through this recognition, AARP Maine encourages members and prospective members to use their skills and assistance as a way to remain vital as well as make a difference in their community.” The screening of nominees will be performed by a panel of AARP staff and volunteers. This screening includes the review of a range of criteria including each nominees’ positive impact on the lives of individuals age 50 and over, their improvement of the community in or for which the

work was performed, and the ways in which their volunteerism inspires others. Rich Livingston, current AARP Maine Volunteer State President, stated, “The AARP Maine Andrus Award acts as a symbol to our members and to the public that we can all work together for positive social change. AARP makes things better for society and has long valued the spirit of volunteerism and the important contributions AARP volunteers make to their communities and neighbors.” AARP Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following eligibility requirements: Nominees must be 50 or older; The achievements, accomplishments or service on which nominations are based must have been performed on a volunteer basis, without pay; The achievements, accomplishments or service on which the nominations are based must reflect AARP’s vision and mission; Couples or partners who perform service together are eligible, however, teams are not; The recipient must live in the awarding state; and This is not a posthumous award.

LePage Travels to Montreal to Encourage Economic Growth between Maine and Quebec AUGUSTA – Gov. Paul R. LePage signed a memorandum of agreement recently with Premier of Quebec Pauline Marois to encourage economic development and support job creation between Maine and the Province of Quebec. The premier invited the governor to Montreal to sign the agreement, which she described as an important collaboration between The AARP Maine Andrus Award for Community Service is an annual awards program developed to honor individuals whose service is a unique and valuable contribution to society. Last year’s recipient was Carol Mower of Orono.

Maine and Quebec. Although Maine and Quebec share a border, as well a common history and culture, this is the first time that the state has entered into such an agreement to strengthen relations with Quebec. “I was pleased to meet with Premier Marois to discuss how Maine and Quebec can work together to create jobs and cooperate in the areas of energy, natural resources transportation, border security and culture,” the governor said. “And I know she was pleased to converse with me in French, which is my native language, and to talk about our shared French-Canadian heritage.”

The measure encourages Maine and Quebec to coordinate with their business communities to set up partnerships and implement economic development initiatives. The agreement also encourages an exchange of cross-border solutions for clean energy, such as hydropower and bioenergy, which could lower home heating costs for Maine people”. A Quebec-Maine Joint Committee will be responsible for implementing the agreement. In addition to signing the agreement with the Premier, Governor LePage spoke to 150 business leaders at luncheon See LEPAGE page 35...

~ News ~ Science Class Creates Display for Local Retailer WELLS – Science is anything but ordinary or routine for students of Saul Lindauer, Wells Junior High School’s seventh-grade science teacher. Lindauer often connects classroom learning with the community to help students become responsible citizens in a world that has finite resources. In a unit on electricity, Lindauer recently assigned students to research light bulbs where they learned terms like ‘lumens’ and ‘lux.’ They also examined the major shift in usage from the ordinary incandescent light bulb in common use for over a century to the longer-lasting and energy-efficient compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). A CFL bulb is an innovative descendent of the ordinary fluorescent tube with a radical design change yielding the distinctive ‘spiral’ tube look. The CFL is appropriate for most lamps with

sockets designed for the incandescent bulb but the CFL can last up to 15 times longer while using as little as a fifth of the electricity. But there is a downside to the CFL. Like its older fluorescent relative, a CFL contains a small amount of mercury and resulting mercury vapor. Since mercury is a toxic substance, a CFL bulb requires special handling to be disposed of properly. In some cities, counties and states it is illegal to toss out a CFL bulb in one’s trash. To help educate the public on CFL use, Lindauer’s students created an informational display about CFLs. They were invited to place their display in Aubuchon Hardware in Wells for a few weeks, beginning May 1, by store manager Jon Lord. Lord indicated that Aubuchon Hardware is a retailer of light bulbs including CFLs and that his store is now a “drop-off” location for used CFLs. He said

anyone can bring CFL bulbs to the store to be shipped off for disposal at no cost. The student display consists of photos, facts and numerous homemade CFL containers with

listings on the cover about usage, environmental and economic benefits, and disposal information. Lord said store employees will judge the boxes and choose a couple of designs they find best. Students whose designs are picked will receive a CFL lamp as


a prize. Lindauer indicated he sees usage of CFLs declining as initial high prices for the more efficient LED (light-emitting diode) bulb decreases. And LED bulbs do not contain mercury. (Story submitted by Reg Bennett)

~ News From Around The State ~ Maine Congressional Delegation Announces Additional Funding for Disaster Relief WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senators Susan Collins and Angus King and Representatives Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree recently announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will provide additional federal assistance to help Maine communities with costs associated with disaster relief work resulting from the severe winter storm this past February. Sagadahoc and Washington counties have been added to the list of regions eligible for federal aid. Other counties already able to receive assistance include

Androscoggin, Cumberland, Knox, and York. Government agencies, tribes and certain nonprofits in those six counties can apply for federal reimbursement for some of their costs for emergency work and the repair or replacement of facilities that were damaged by the disaster. “This is welcome news for Maine communities impacted by the severe winter storm last February,” said the delegation jointly. “The high costs of infrastructure repair activity and snow removal operations have been a heavy burden -- especially at time when our economy is

so fragile – and federal funding for disaster relief efforts helps to alleviate some of those pains.” The Maine Emergency Management Agency will hold briefings for agencies and tribes that want to request help from FEMA. Interested parties should contact their local emergency managers or MEMA for a schedule of briefings.

New Programs of Study Approved for York County Community College AUGUSTA – The Board of Trustees of the Maine Community College System has approved the addition of three new programs of study at York County Community College in Wells. The programs are: Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Behavioral Health; A.A.S. in Veterinary Technology; and A.A.S. in Precision Machining Technology. The programs have been under development for some time. Final approval by the MCCS Board means the college can now move forward with enrolling students for the 20132014 academic year. “All three of these programs have been designed to respond to new and changing opportunities in Maine’s economy,” said John Fitzsim-

mons, president of the Maine Community College System, in announcing the program approvals. “The new offerings will help ensure that Maine employers have the skilled workers they need to grow and prosper and that residents of the region have additional educational and employment options.” The Associate in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology will provide students with skills in animal healthcare and management, clinical techniques, and decision making. It will combine classroom instruction with hands-on learning that includes both laboratory and field work. Graduates of the program will be prepared to work with animals of all sizes and will acquire the skills needed to work as veterinary

technicians. The Associate in Applied Science in Behavioral Health will prepare students for work in the mental health field. It will also provide them with the foundation necessary to transfer on to a bachelor’s degree program in the field. Subjects of study will include trauma, substance abuse issues, counseling theories, cultural awareness, and the role of mental health providers. Graduates of the program will be certified to receive their Mental Health Rehabilitation Technician Community Certification, the minimum licensing qualification needed to work in the mental health field in the Maine. The Associate in Applied Science in Precision Machining Technology will provide stu-

Maine’s Rate of Workplace Fatalities Higher than Average WASHINGTON, D.C. – According to a new AFLCIO report, Death on the Job: The Toll of Neglect, 26 workers were killed in Maine in 2011 with a rate of 4.2 deaths per 100,000 workers, higher than the national rate of 3.5 deaths. Nationally, Maine ranks 30th among states with the lowest worker fatality rates, with 1 being the best and 50 being the worst. It also ranks higher for injuries and illnesses injured at work. Due to lack of staffing it would take the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 76 years to inspect each workplace in Maine once. The report notes that in 2011, there were 4,693 workplace deaths due to traumatic injuries and more than 3.8 million workers across all industries, including state and local government, who experienced work-related illnesses and injudents with the skills and knowledge needed to work in precision manufacturing. The program will provide instruction in blueprint reading, CAD/ CAM systems, programming, equipment capabilities, and regulations and laws. Graduates will be prepared for jobs as machinists and machine operators. For more information about these and other programs offered at York County Community College, visit or contact the YCCC Admissions Office at admissions@ or 207-216-4406.

ries. As a comparison point, in 2010, 4,690 people died on the job. For the past three years, after years of steady decline the job fatality rate has essentially been unchanged, with a rate of 3.5/100,000 workers in 2011. Similarly for the past two years there has been no change in the reported workplace injury and illness rate (3.5 per 100 workers), indicating that greater efforts are needed for continued progress in reducing job injuries and deaths. The AFL-CIO report features profiles of workers’ safety and health in each state and includes national information on workplace illnesses, injuries and fatalities as well as the number and frequency of workplace inspections, penalties, funding, staffing and public employee coverage under the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act). The report also addresses delays in the rule-making process and emerging hazards such as pandemic flu and other infectious diseases. ...LEPAGE from page 34 conference sponsored by The Montreal Council on Foreign Relations.

Coastal Construction Opens Flooring and Tile Showroom OGUNQUIT – Coastal General Construction recently celebrated the opening of a new flooring and tile showroom at 718 Maine St., Ogunquit. The showroom features a wide selection of brands — offering tiles, flooring, counters, and cabinetry — including both green and Maine made products. The company is offering free design consultations for customers, and the experience and advice of its construction professionals to help guide the buyer through the selection and installation process. A ribbon cutting was held recently and the staff at Coastal is inviting the public to stop in and see what the new showroom has to offer. Coastal General Construction Inc. was founded in 2006, combining the highly successful DeHart Construction and NormC Home Improvement into one company poised to meet a range of construction needs, from residential construction to commercial construction and everything in between. As equal partners in CGCI, Norm Clough and Jerry DeHart have grown this early partnership with one employee into a multi-million dollar corporation with a permanent crew of 10 construction professionals and numerous subcontractor relationships. DeHart has deep roots in the area and the construction industry. Born and raised in York County, his family originally settled in the area in the 1600s. After a year at the University of Maine, he attended the construction technology program at San Jose City College in California. Upon completion of his

apprenticeship, DeHart went on to become a project manager and, in 1987, became a licensed general B contractor in the states of California, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona. Under his leadership, his company, DeHart Construction, grew to over 50 employees. In the mid-‘90s, DeHart took a brief sabbatical from construction to travel the world, visiting over 40 countries. When he returned, he continued his education at the University of Georgia, where he received several certificates of excellence. He returned to his home state after 9/11, settling in Ogunquit and continuing with DeHart Construction. DeHart also serves the community as an appointed chairman on the Ogunquit Historic Preservation Commission and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Barn Gallery (OAC) in Ogunquit. He is a State of Maine-licensed thirdparty building inspector. Clough was born and raised in Sanford. Majoring in building trades, he graduated from Sanford High School in 1980 and continued his education at Southern Maine Technical College (formerly Southern Maine Vocational Technical Institute), earning an associates degree in 1982. He worked his way up the corporate ladder from hourly associate to general manager of 70 employees. During those years, he worked part time as a selfemployed carpenter. In early 2001, Clough founded his own company, NormC Home Improvement and in 2006 merged his company with DeHart Construction to form Coastal General Construction Inc.

Lancaster Community College in Clifton Forge, Va., effective July 8. He recently announced his resignation from York County Community College, after serving the college for 18 years. In his tenure at YCCC, which spans the college’s entire history, Rainone has served in a multitude of capacities, including as Dean of Professional Development and Business Services, Assistant Dean of Community Education, Interim Dean of Academic Programs and Interim Chief Financial Officer/ Administration before taking on his most recent role as Dean of Institutional Advancement. “John Rainone has been instrumental in growing our college, enhancing its quality, and placing it in the forefront of the community’s awareness.” said Dr. Scott Knapp, YCCC’s Interim President. “Dabney S. Lancaster Community College is a very lucky institution, and will certainly grow and prosper under John’s leadership.” Rainone also served as the Foundation’s second Executive Director, leading that group’s efforts to raise money for scholarships, capital projects, and other needs of the college. “The YCCC Foundation has benefited from John’s dedication and skill in building a strong bond between the Board, the College and the York County community.” said Meg Nichols, YCCC Foundation Board President. “His contribution to YCCC is immeasurable and we will miss his enthusiasm.

award-winning Passamaquoddy basket maker Jeremy Frey to Visit Kennebunkport Gallery

KeNNeBuNKPOrT – Sometimes a tradition that is hundreds of years old is shaken up by one newcomer. Such is the case with Passamaquoddy basket maker Jeremy Frey. His ancestors, along with people from the Penobscot, Micmac and Maliseet tribes, have been making baskets for hundreds of years. Frey’s baskets have elevated this craft to an art form that has been recognized by his peers as well as by judges at the Santa Fe Indian Market as the best in the Native American art world. Frey’s baskets exhibit an exceptional mastery of weaving skills and an exceptional aesthetic sense. Frey combines form, pattern, and color into exquisite vessels worthy of any museum collection. Seeing his baskets in person is a moving experience, not only for basket collectors, but for anyone who likes being in the presence of masterful objects of art. In 2011, Jeremy Frey was the first basket maker to win Best of Show at the Santa Fe Indian Market, the most prestigious gathering of Native American artists in the U.S. He was also awarded Best of Show at the Heard Museum Guild Indian Fair and Market, making him the second artist to win both awards in the same year. His work has been in a traveling exhibit with New York’s Museum of Arts & Design, and has con-

tinued to win awards through 2013. For much of their history, baskets made by Maine Indians were utilitarian: heavy and durable. Once tourists began traveling to Maine’s seaside resorts, astute weavers, primarily women, began making fancy baskets with a lighter, more graceful aesthetic. Fancy baskets were designed to hold handkerchiefs and sewing kits, rather than potatoes and camping gear. Fancy basket makers kept the tradition alive long after the heyday of rail and horse travel to Bar Harbor, Kennebunkport, and similar towns. Beginning in the 1990s, the Maine Indian Basketmakers Alliance began the important work of matching master basket makers with younger folks in their community who were willing to learn how to weave ash and sweetgrass into baskets. Frey was one of many beneficiaries of this effort. While some of his training was provided by his mother, Frances (Gal) Frey, he also got a boost from a training program sponsored by the Alliance. He gives back to the community by helping others to learn the intricacies of weaving, so they too can keep their people’s traditions evolving well into the 21st century. Frey will be at Home and Away Gallery from 11 a.m. to See FREY page 42...


african Children’s Choir to Offer Concert in Cape Neddick CaPe NeddICK – Over 25 years ago, Ray Barnett of Vancouver, B.C., was on a humanitarian trip to war-torn Uganda when he gave a small boy a ride from his decimated

home to the safety of another village. During the journey, the child did what he knew how to do best -- he sang. That simple song of dignity and hope became the catalyst for a program that has changed the lives of thousands of children. “When I went back to Canada and people were not very interested in Uganda, I remembered this small boy,” Barnett explained. “I knew that if only a group of these beautiful children could go to the West, people would be deeply moved and would certainly want to help.” From there the African Children’s Choir was born. Rallying support from the West,

Barnett conducted the first tour of the choir. The choir has been working with the most vulnerable children in Africa for 27 years, raising awareness of the plight of Africa’s orphaned and abandoned, but also showing the potential of each African child. They perform throughout the world, serving a voice for millions of children suffering in Africa. The African Children’s Choir will come to the area on May 22 when the ensemble will appear in concert at 7 p.m. at Cape Neddick Baptist Church, 34 River Road, Cape Neddick. Call 207-363-3566. This is a free concert. An offering will be received.

Berwick academy Student Wins Congressional art Competition SOuTH BerWICK – Congresswoman Chellie Pingree recently announced that Eliza Hazen of York, a senior at Berwick Academy, has won the 2013 Congressional Art Competition for Maine’s First District with her painting “Wiggly Bridge in the Rain --York, Maine.” “The quality of the work that Maine students produce for this competition is always impressive—and this year was no exception. I’m very proud to have Eliza’s beautiful watercolor represent our district at the Capitol. Her painting speaks from the heart about the special connection Mainers have with the water,” said Pingree. “My thanks and congratulations go to all the students who participated this year, the art teachers who’ve fostered their talent, and the Maine Arts Commission for coordinating this fantastic event. ” Of her piece, competition jurors noted, “Great focal point that draws your eye outward, enhances the land and draws you out to sea. Great poetic place for thought and departure that is enhanced by the harmonious use of color.”

Upper School AP studio art teacher Raegan Russell commented, “Eliza is an artist who embraces the idea that making art is an ongoing process of learning and personal expression. Eliza’s honor reflects the passion and commitment for painting that has been nurtured by her family and in the studio classrooms of BA. Eliza is an artist who paints for all the right reasons: through it she finds balance and creative engagement.” The judges also recognized the work of 1st District student Jocelyn DeSisto of South Berwick. DeSisto is a senior at Marshwood High School, where her art teacher is Patricia Sevigny-Higgins.

dear Computer lady, I enjoy your questions and answers and find them very helpful. However now I have a question of my own. I am using windows 7 on a laptop and I used to have a volume icon on the bottom task bar. It has disappeared and I would like to know how to restore the icon. I find it useful to control the volume in a program. Keep up your good work. Respectfully, Sandy dear Sandy, It sounds like one of two things has happened, either your volume icon is hidden on your taskbar, or it has been removed altogether. Both situations can be easily fixed, so lets get started. First, to see if your volume icon is just hidden, find the little triangle in the system tray, you will know you have found the right icon when you hover your mouse pointer over it, and “Show hidden icons” pops up. Click on the “Show hidden icons” arrow and a small box with icons from the system tray will appear. If you volume icon was simply hidden, it will appear in this window. If you don’t see the volume icon, click on the word, “Customize” at the bottom of the small box, then click on “Turn system icons on or off” in the next window. Click the drop down list next to, “Volume” and select “On”. Click the “OK” button at the bottom of the dialog box to close the window and save your changes. If your volume icon is missing, but the setting says it is on, try turning it off, click “OK” and then go back in and turn it back on. Sometimes this will fix the problem. Elizabeth dear Computer lady, I have read your column for years. Right now, I have 2 computer questions. 1. Yes, I accidentally uninstalled JavaScript. Is my only solution to back up all, erase and reinstall from the beginning: Window 7, Internet explorer. 2. I do not understand Live Mail. It is something I have to register for? I have attempted to send email on Live Mail and it always asked for my password. Thanks, Marietta

~ ask The Computer lady ~ dear Marietta, You do not have to erase your computer in order to get Java back. Just go to: com/en/ and click on the “Free Java Download button. On the next screen, click on the “Agree and start free download” button. Follow the prompts to install Java and you should be all set. As far as Windows Live Mail is concerned, you don’t have to register for it, but you do have to set up your email account correctly. If you can receive email, but not send it, contact your Email provider and ask them to help you with the outgoing mail settings. Once you have the correct settings, you should be able to both send and receive email messages in Windows Live Mail. Elizabeth dear Computer lady, How can I prevent people from posting on my Facebook page unpleasant mails or photos. When I try to delete them I am asked SPAM or ABUSE, and whatever I answer they do not go away! (You need to remove the person from your friends list) How do you remove friends? From Joseph on Facebook dear Joseph, I like to say that our Facebook experience (like life) depends on who our friends are. If you have positive friends who post uplifting things, you will enjoy Facebook. If you have negative friends who swear, complain and make trouble, you wonít enjoy it. If you want to remove some of the people that you have friended on your Facebook page, just follow these directions: Click on your name in the blue bar at the top of your screen. Click on ìFriendsî just under your cover photo to display a list of all your friends. Hover your mouse over the ìFriendsî button next to the person you want to remove. Click “Unfriend” in the drop down list, and they are gone. Repeat the last two steps for any additional people that you want to remove from your friends list.

I am again. I have a problem with scanning to email. For an unknown reason my scan opens in OUTLOOK and I use IE through Comcast. I scan and address my email, it acts like it sent but is never received. Is there a way I can be sure that my email will go via IE? Thank you, Nancy in Cape May, NJ dear Nancy, When you installed your scanner software, it was programmed to look for an email program installed on your computer to use with the scan to email feature. Even though you use Internet Explorer to send emails using Comcast’s online interface, your scanner install program picked Outlook. It did this because Internet Explorer is a web browser, not an email program. The scan to email feature requires an email program. In order to use the scan to email feature on your scanner, you will need to set up Outlook to use your Comcast email account. This should be fairly simple, and if you have questions, a quick call to Comcast support will answer them. Unfortunately, there is not a way to scan through the Internet Explorer email interface on the website. Elizabeth Comments This Week: dear elizabeth, Again, I thank you so much for all the good information you share with us. I am sending the following info in hopes it might be of use to somebody: Myself being quite old (79) and set in my ways, I was perfectly happy with my old computer, old printer and old operating system. But then I decided I wanted a new printer which had more capabilities and features than my old one. Unfortunately, the new printer I wanted would not run on my old system. I had many programs on my old computer that would not run if I upgraded to a newer computer and OS. What to do? Bingo! A friend told me about a marvelous gadget call a KVM Switch (Keyboard - Video - Mouse). This simple inexpensive device allows you to have two or more computers connected to the switch by means of which you can switch back & forth to one or more computers and continue to use your exist-

ing keyboard and monitor. So, I bought the new printer that I wanted, a new computer with later Operating System to run my newer printer and the KVM switch. The new OS also gave me capability to run other stuff that would not run on my older computer. I was able to keep my old computer so I did not lose my older programs that would not run on the new one. I also kept my old printer (which I liked for the cheap ink tanks) to print ordinary stuff. I have used this KVM system for at least two years or more without any switching problems, so I was much younger when I first installed it.

Hope this will help somebody. Thanks again Elizabeth for all your help. Sincerely, Dean dear dean, Thanks for this great tip! I have used KVM switches for years, both on my workbench and my desk. They work great and allow me to work on two computers at the same time. My favorite KVM is made by Startech Elizabeth Interested in learning more?

Turning devices Off to recharge Are you addicted to your smartphone or mobile device? If so, rest assured that you are not alone. A survey conducted by SecurEnvoy found that roughly 66 percent of people are afraid of losing or being separated from their phones. The condition has been dubbed “nomophobia,” or the fear of being out of contact with someone via mobile phone. Data collected by the Pew Research Center has concluded nearly 85 percent of Americans own cell phones. A 2011 survey by mobile app company TeleNav Inc., found that 40 percent of people with iPhones said they’d rather give up brushing their teeth for a week than go without their phones. Today’s mobile devices are used for everything from checking stock quotes to scouring for coupons to keeping tabs on teenagers. Many rely on their phones for directions or to read reviews on local establishments. Many people have grown so accustomed to using mobile phones that their reliance has grown into an addiction. Who doesn’t know the person who is compulsively checking e-mail, sending texts or updating their social media status via their phone? While there are many benefits to mobile phone usage, there are pitfalls as well. Instances of distracted drivers injured or killed while using their mobile phones are well documented. Some even believe that relying too heavily on phones can impair a person’s ability to focus and may intensify stress and feelings of depression.

Individuals who are looking to recharge their personal batteries and step away from mobile devices may want to consider the following suggestions. * Write a note. Writing notes on paper can be a great way to express yourself. Think about how you feel while writing the letter and imagine the look of surprise on the recipient’s face when he or she finds it in the mailbox and it’s not yet just another application for a credit card within the envelope. * Hide your phone. Put the phone in a drawer or closet and make sure it is turned off. Spend time around the house and grow accustomed to how it feels to be off the grid. Then do something as adventurous as running out to the store or to pick up the kids at school without your phone. * Use old photos to reminisce. Take out photo albums and look over tangible, printed photos from times when it was commonplace to hold photos in your hands and not squint at them on LCD screens. Think about how many years you survived without a mobile phone. * Focus on a fun activity. Invest your time wholeheartedly in an activity that you enjoy. Make this a digital-free time. Consider how well you can enjoy the time when you’re not multitasking on a phone or waiting for a text message or incoming e-mail to interrupt your train of thought. * Get cooking. Immerse yourself in a recipe and cook a meal that allows you to relax and keep your mind off of status See DEVICES page 49...

Every spring and summer, AWS volunteers spend countless hours preparing for an annual Antiques Show and Sale at Kennebunk High School. This fundraiser will be Aug. 3 and 4 this year.

If possible, because of the planning and organization that must take place, it would be appreciated if items could be dropped off or picked up no later than July 10. Contact Debbie at 207-2866517 or Fran at 207-985-3721 ASAP to arrange to drop off or pick up.

Safe Haven Humane Society WellS -The kitties at our Adoption Center love to sit in the windows and watch everything that goes on. Now they have something new to look at out front: a For Sale sign. Our building is part of a real estate package priced at $1.4 million. We know we will soon be forced to move, unless the new buyer continues to rent to us. We’ve loved being here in Wells on Route 1, and have felt safe being so close to the police and fire station. We’ve made many great friends and many of our volunteers live nearby. We’re trying to make this change a positive one by taking care of the most important issue – getting as many kitties as possible adopted, so they don’t have to endure the stress of a rush relocation. We are looking for the best of the best to adopt our kitties so they’ll continue to feel loved. It’s sad knowing we will all have to leave eventually, but we must make this as wonderful as possible. And that means find them great homes ASAP! We’re used to emergencies. Tough times have prepared us for yet another twist in the road of rescue. But tough times make us stronger, and we intend to come out of this stronger and better. Kitties in our foster homes must also find homes to accommodate some of the adoption center kitties that might need quick placement. These foster kitties are eager for your love. Beamer (male) and Porsche (female) are 6-month-old “formerly feral” beauties that have made remarkable progress in socialization. They, their mom, and two other siblings arrived as ferals in a dog crate, soaking wet in the back of a pickup truck. They were frightened from being captured and driven in an open truck. Beamer and Porsche were especially quick in responding to the love and human interaction they experienced in foster care. Today these small, sleek, short-haired black beauties with

bright yellow eyes are friendly and playful. While his momma, Jaguar, hid behind a sofa, brave Beamer stretched out his neck to respond to a gentle hand and yummy treats. Porsche soon followed his lead. Today they are as sweet as can be. They climb all over their foster family now, eager for petting. They purr as they knead the blankets. Both are still a little squirmy about being picked up, but in time they’ll love it. Want to teach a kitty that doesn’t like to be picked up how to enjoy it? Gently lift the kitty off the ground by just a few inches. Increase the height and duration over time. Reward them with treats. Eventually they’ll learn they must be held before they get a treat. That works with many kitties. Try it yourself! Beamer and Porsche would be happiest adopted as a pair, but we’d consider separating them as long as there is another kitty in the house for them to play with. The ideal situation for shy kitties is a quiet home with no young children (under 7), a home with order and routine, and someone who’s home often to give affection, companionship and encouragement. Shy kitties are still learning to trust, and that comes with repetition of kindness and treats. If you’d like to meet two sweet, love-hungry kitties, please call at 207-229-8314. Outdoor Yard Sale: May 18-19, 1616 Post Road, Wells, Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Maverick Nights: Thursdays 5 to 7 p.m. Open house. Come play with the kitties! Meet our volunteers, grab a cat toy, play in the cat room. You’ll have fun and help shy kitties learn to love people.

You choose whether you want a long- or short-term commitment. Please visit or stop by the shelter for more information and to get your application to foster. Jasmine This darling beauty is Jasmine, a 4-year-old Rottweiler. Jasmine is a loving girl who enjoys spending lots of time with her people. She is very friendly and would be more than happy to share a new home with other dogs, cats, and active children of all ages. She enjoys playing with children and is very wellbehaved. Jasmine’s favorite type of toy? Tennis balls, but squeaky toys are a close second. Jasmine is quite bright and already knows how to “sit” and “come.” She would get a kick out of learning new commands with her new people. All in all, Jasmine is a great, well-rounded, ideal dog. She would be a wonderful fit for just about any household. If you’d like to add Jasmine to your home, then stop on in today to meet her.

The Wildcats’ No. 1 doubles team of senior Olivia Greer and freshman Sarah Carley played what Coach Norm Martinen called “the highlight of my seven years of coaching,” winning their match over Sophie Raffel and Abby Cough 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 in a match that lasted more than two-and-a-half hours. After losing the first set, the Wildcats gathered themselves to

their opponents doubled faulted. “The crowd of spectators who’d gathered around gave out a well-deserved applause for both teams,” Martinen said. “I hugged both of them after the match,” the coach concluded. “I was so proud of them both.” York’s singles players won all their matches and the No. 2 doubles team fought valiantly but lost giving York the overall 4-1 decision. Later in the week, York was over-matched by No. 1 Falmouth, winning a single game at No. 2 doubles. York is now 6-2 for the season.

lady Bulldogs rally to Win Two SOuTH BerWICK – It’s getting to be a habit for the Berwick Academy girls’ softball team to fall behind early and then rally for victory. That’s just what the Lady Bulldogs did in their last two outings against Lexington Christian Academy and Landmark School. Against Lexington, Berwick trailed 5-4 after two inning en route to an 8-6 win and found themselves down 7-4 after two innings on the way to a 17-7 thrashing of Landmark. Berwick has now won four in a row and stands at 8-3 overall and 6-3 in the Eastern Indepen-

dent League. Lexington was looking good with a 5-0 lead after the first inning but the Bulldogs, as they are wont to do, kept chipping away and after five it was a 6-6 standoff. The winning run and an insurance tally scored on a tworun single by sophomore Taylor Lyman in the sixth inning. Lyman had a triple in the game as well and drove home three runs. Suzanna Borg scored three times for the winners. Lyman got credit for the mound decision, going six and a third innings in relief, allowing one run on four hits. She struck

out eight. It was most of the same against Landmark except the Lady Bulldogs roared back to post a decisive victory. Lyman was also credited with the mound win in relief in this one, going four and twothirds innings without allowing a run. She struck out 13 and walked only one. Senior Molly LaPointe and Freshman Christina Grassie combined for seven of Berwick’s 14 hits in the game and scored seven runs. Lyman had only one hit but did knock in four runs to run her RBI total to 35 in 10 games.

win the second 6-4, setting the stage for the marathon deciding set. “I believe tennis more than any other sport, is a game of momentum,” Coach Martinen said. “In tennis there’s no time clock as in many other sports. A single tennis match could go on for hours, or days.” After the second set victory the coach was concerned if his players “could keep that momentum or would it revert back to Waynflete?” With the match entering its third hour, hunger, cramps and fatigue were becoming concerns, but the York girls stepped it up yet again and won the match when

SOuTH BerWICK – Junior Melanie Mait scored seven goals in two games to lead the Berwick Academy girls’ lacrosse team to victories over Hebron Academy and Beaver Country Day School. She collected three goals in a 14-3 win over Hebron and added four in the 16-5 win over Beaver Country. Berwick thus remained un-

defeated this season in 13 outings. The victory over Hebron was part of the school’s Blue and White Day and was close for a while. It was tied with seven minutes to play in the first half when the hosts began pulling away. Berwick had 10 difference scorers in the Hebron win. In addition to Mait, sophomore Isabel Eldridge had a pair of goals and sophomore Brooke Downey and

freshman Caroline Hernon had a goal and an assist. Goalie Kaitlyn Wurzer had 10 saves for the Lady Bulldogs. Offensive standouts in addition to Mait against Beaver Country included sophomore Aimee Briand with three goals and an assist and sophomore Izzy Reis with two goals and an assist. Wurzer had seven saves and two interceptions in goal.

Marshwood’s Harvey Pitches No-Hitter against Portland SOUTH BERWICK – Nicole Harvey pitched a no-hitter recently to spark Marshwood High School girls’ softball team to a 10-1 victory over Portland in a Western Maine Class A contest. The next time out, Harvey was just about as good, allowing only two hits in a 9-0 blanking of Gorham High School. The two wins by the

Hawks upped their season mark to 7-3. Portland’s lone tally in the no-hitter was unearned as Harvey went seven innings with 10 strikeouts and no walks. Against Gorham, she walked two and struck out six in another Harvey performance. Against Portland, she chipped in with a double and drove home two runs. Joining

her in the offensive attack was Sammy Crosman with a double and two runs scored. Crosman went four for four including a home run and three RBI to lead the offense against Gorham. Glanna Riccardi also blasted a home run in the game along with a triple and a single and drove home three runs. Gorham is now 3-7 for the season.

SPORTS eliot rider Places Sixth in National Competition elIOT – Casey Flanigan, Eliot, a seventh-grader at Marshwood Middle School, placed sixth in the recent national finals of the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) competition in Syracuse, N.Y. Finalists represented 889 teams and 8,000 student riders from eight zones throughout the United States. Flanigan was one of 351 of the nation’s leading middle school and high school equestrians who tested their skills at the New York State Fairgrounds. A member of the middle school York Equestrian Team

based out of Greystone Stables, Berwick, Flanigan participated in multiple competitions as an individual competitor as well as riding to accumulate points for her team during the 2012-2013 regular season shows, regional and zone finals to qualify for the IEA national finals competition. The IEA format requires that riders compete in unfamiliar tack (equipment) on unfamiliar horses; therefore, they draw their horses the day of competition and enter the arena after a brief, if any, warm-up testing a rider’s patience, planning, horse-

manship, and sportsmanship. Founded in 2002, the IEA is a national organization formed and organized to promote and improve the quality of equestrian competition and instruction available to middle and secondary school students, set standards for competition, provide information concerning the creation and development of school associated equestrian sport programs, and promote the common interests of safe riding instruction and competition. For more information, view the IEA website at: www.

Mickey is neutered, his vaccinations are current, and he has passed his wellness exam. Mickey will do very well with older children, other non-aggressive cats and non-aggressive dogs. If you have been pondering the question of adding a new furry friend to the family circle, Mickey would like to weigh in with a few thought of his own. Cats are easy to care for, already know how to use indoor toilets, never need to be walked at midnight, will not bark at moving leaves, are very loving pets and will bring a great deal of joy into your home. Mickey will be at the adoption center on Saturday waiting to meet and greet all prospective parents along with incoming kittens, many teenage kittens, a good selection of young adult cats and a limited number of older kitties all trying to catch your eye. Adoption hours are Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and by appointment during the week. Location: 37 Market St. in the village of North Berwick.

KeNNeBuNKPOrT – The Kennebunkport Conservation Trust recently received the American Lighthouse Foundation’s 2013 “Keeper of the Light” award for its work in restoring Goat Island Lighthouse to the look of the 1950s. Scott Dombrowski, light keeper and co-project-manager, and Mike Weston, who helped to set the stage for our re-model, guided the volunteer-driven project which included restoring the walkway that was washed out in a storm in 1978, rebuilding the bell tower and fuel building that had been taken down decades ago, and remodeling the house.

dards of the vocal art and of the ethical principles in the teaching of singing; and to promote vocal education and research at all levels, both for the enrichment of the general public and for the professional advancement of the talented.” Sarah studies voice privately with Ann Guiney at River Tree Arts in Kennebunkport. To participate students must study with a voice teacher who is a member of NATS. Each student prepares three classical pieces of music to sing for a jury of professional judges. Three students in each division are chosen to move into a final round. In

that final round students are invited to sing again in the concert hall at the Olin Center for the Arts at Bates College. The students are again adjudicated by a new panel of judges. Khan was chosen as the first place winner for Division I, which included all students in seventh and eighth grades. Her talent and passion for singing are attributed in part to her education and training at Berwick Academy. Since kindergarten, Khan has remained involved with the arts as a singer, dancer, pianist and violin player. Most recently, she performed at BA’s annual Winterfest for the
