Vassaboro News: Procedural issues dominate school board meeting

by Mary Grow

Procedural issues dominated at the Vassalboro School Board’s Oct. 18 meeting, as AOS (Alternative Organizational Structure) #92 officials explained some of the issues the central office deals with for Vassalboro, Waterville and Winslow schools.

Superintendent Eric Haley described the process by which bills are generated and paid, listing the numerous reviews both in the local schools and in the central office aimed at ensuring expenditures are justified. Assistant Superintendent Peter Thiboutot explained the federal programs in which AOS #92 schools take part. The purpose of federal school funding is primarily to help students who fail to meet educational standards by assisting in various areas of need. Each category is called a title.

Vassalboro receives funds from three of the six federal Titles, Thiboutot said. In 2016-17, Title I provides $152,481; Title II, $24,306; and Title VI, $24,000. Title I programs provide support in reading and math; allocations are based on the percentage of students who qualify for free and reduced-price school lunches. At Vassalboro Community School, 43 percent of students receive free lunch and another seven percent receive reduced-price lunch. One teacher and two educational technicians are paid with Title I funds; a third technician works in the program but is paid from the local budget because the federal funds are inadequate.

Title II money is used for professional development activities. Receiving schools are allowed to transfer up to half their Title II money to Title I; Vassalboro does so, Thiboutot said.
Title VI is called Rural Low Income, and Thiboutot described it as a catch-all that covers a variety of support activities, from contracts with behavioral health counselors to certain after-school clubs and activities.

In preparation for the Oct. 27 meeting of the Maine School Board Association, Vassalboro board members reviewed and endorsed four proposed resolutions. Three ask for legislative action to: 1) confirm that allowing a student to transfer to a school in another town should be a decision of the two superintendents involved, not to be overridden by state officials; 2) review rising teacher retirement costs that the state shifted onto school districts’ budgets in 2015; and 3) create a task force to review special education costs and needs. The fourth resolution asks the governor’s office to nominate a new Commissioner of Education for 2017 legislative confirmation.

The next Vassalboro School Board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday evening, Nov. 15.

Alternate member sought for planning board

by Mary Grow

Vassalboro selectmen would like to appoint a new alternate planning board member at their Nov. 3 meeting, so anyone interested in the position should notify the town office by that day at the latest.
At the selectmen’s Oct. 20 meeting, Town Manager Mary Sabins said former Codes Officer Paul Mitnik was so far the only applicant to succeed Paul Breton, who resigned earlier in the month.

The meeting opened with two public hearings, one on amendments to the appendices to Vassalboro’s General Assistance Ordinance and one on renewal of junkyard and auto hobbyist permits. Since no members of the public were present, the hearings were extremely short.

After the hearings, selectmen approved the changes in general assistance and nine permits, as follows:

  • Junkyard/auto graveyard permits: James Cagley (Ron’s Parts Inc.), Main Street; Dale Clement (Bondo’s Garage), Taber Hill Road; Bill Pullen (Freddie’s Service Center), South Stanley Hill Road; Stanley Garnet (Garnett Motors), North Belfast Avenue; Olin Charette (Weeks Mills Garage), Riverside Drive; and Voit Ritch (Autowerkes), Route 3.
  • Auto hobbyist permits: Keith Lemieux, Priest Hill Road; James Jurdak, Baker Road; and Robert Dore, Church Hill Road.

Vassalboro Food Pantry officials requested permission to add a carport on the food pantry building beside the North Vassalboro fire station and further asked selectmen to waive the permit fee, since the town owns the building. Selectmen unanimously granted both requests.

Sabins said the food pantry had received a gift of money for the project, which is intended to protect the front door of the building from the weather.

In other business, Sabins said cemetery committee members have been putting up identifying signs at all known Vassalboro cemeteries and planning two administrative-type projects, extending the regulations adopted for the North Vassalboro cemetery to the other active cemeteries in town and computerizing Vassalboro cemetery records. For the second project, Sabins said, she is looking for grants to cover costs of the computer program committee members recommend and the data entry work.

Following up on an issue from September, Sabins said she talked with Jan Clowes of the Vassalboro Historical Society about shared maintenance of the grounds around the former East Vassalboro school building that the society leases from the town. The two did not reach agreement, she said. Board Chairman Lauchlin Titus advised research to determine the exact boundaries of the schoolhouse lot.

COMMUNITY COMMENTARY: A closer look at question 3 on China ballot

by Paul Mitnik
Codes Enforcement Officer
Town of China

Question 3: Shall amendments to the Town of China Land Development Code, Chapter 2, Land Use Ordinance and Chapter 11 Definitions be enacted?

This following article is written so that residents of China may better understand the amendments that they will be voting on in the third ballot question. The amendments can broadly be divided into three major categories. The first of these pertains to the signs. China enacted language in their Land Use Ordinance in 2010 to regulate the size and amount of signs on their property and other issues pertaining to signs. However the new language did not grandfather existing signs and, in fact, had a sunset provision which required property owners to comply with the new regulations within ninety (90) days. The sunset provision was never enforced, and as a result most of the existing commercial businesses do not comply with Ordinance requirements. The proposed ordinance changes add grandfathering to all signs that existed in 2010 except operational items such as lighting and hold time for changing digital signs. If this is not enacted, many commercial signs in China will have to be removed or reduced in size, some of which have been in existence for decades.

The second item pertains to seasonal conversions. Some camps in the shoreland zone are only permitted to be occupied for seven months of the year based upon whether or not they were occupied year round from 1977 to 1981. Seasonal conversion permits must be obtained to occupy seasonal camps year round for those camps that were seasonal during this period. The state law for obtaining this permit requires the property to have full septic systems containing a tank and disposal bed adequately sized and functioning properly that meet setbacks to the lake high water mark, wells, and property line and buildings. China has a provision in their Ordinance which also requires both the lot to meet minimum lot size and the camp to meet the 100 foot water setback in order to obtain this permit. The amendment proposes to repeal these provisions in China’s Ordinance, since once the camps are built the septic system is really the main issue for water quality protection of the lake. If a property has an adequate septic system, staying in the camp another five months annually should not have any additional impact to lake water quality. The proposed changes will not affect when a property owner can visit their seasonal camp since the state rules do not require that the seven months be consecutive.

The third amendment is the adoption of the updated DEP requirements for 2015. This includes changes to expansions of non-conforming structures; adoption of the statewide timber harvesting standards; and new sections giving guidelines to hazard, storm damaged, or dead tree removal; revegetation requirements for properties in violation of clearing standards; and exemption to clearing standards. The expansion provision of these changes may be the most controversial and difficult to understand. The new standards use footprint of a building rather than the formerly used standards of volume and floor area. Floor area is a sum of the footprint of all stories.

The footprint is a more scientific way from a water quality perspective, since it is the footprint or the amount of impervious area that produces runoff which could potentially pollute the lake. The new expansion standards should level the playing field, since expansions for large structures will become more stringent but expansions for small structures less stringent. Currently what is allowed for expansions for large structures with multiple stories can be enormous, while the single story small structure is very limited in its size for expansions.

The Town’s TIF committee is planning a project on the causeway which addresses safety issues and runoff treatment. A fishing platform, wood plank trail, and phosphorus infiltration treatment system is planned for this area. A minor change was made to the ordinance to clarify that Town owned fishing platforms are a functionally water dependent use and are exempted from water setback requirements which is consistent with state law. Currently many people fish from the causeway on China Lake. Safety from automobile and boating traffic is an issue. The phosphorus treatment system will intercept sediment runoff that is currently entering the lake below the causeway and into the wetland above the causeway.

Students pursue skills employers claim are in short supply

When was the last time you updated your resume? Did you include skills like problem-solving, critical-thinking and communication? According to a study conducted by LinkedIn in partnership with the Wall Street Journal, those are exactly the types of skills and attributes we should all be highlighting if we want to stand out in a job search. This week at Pine Tree Camp, in Rome, about 180 middle school and high school students from across the state gathered for JMG’s annual Leadership Education Conference (LEC). The Conference is an overnight intensive that gives students the unique opportunity to learn those soft skills employers are looking for.

Robbie Clark is an eighth grader at Winslow Middle School. He said, “When we’re at school, we’re usually working by ourselves or with our close friends. But, here at LEC you have to work with kids from all over that you’ve never met before. We have to work together to solve problems and meet deadlines. It challenges us.”

The conference, held from October 18 – 21, includes a series of hands-on activities that require students to practice their communication, time management, and teamwork skills. For example, the Army National Guard was on hand teaching them how to build emergency shelters. The students had to take some very basic materials, a few instructions, and work together to build a functional shelter in a certain amount of time. Chances are relatively few of these students will ever need to build a shelter, but the soft careers skills they’re honing will come in handy throughout their lives.

Ryan Moore, vice president at Bank of America, in Belfast, is a volunteer at LEC. Moore says, “This type of student event gives these young people the chance to get out of the classroom and offers them the opportunity to practice skills that are in high demand in the job market.”

Along with the skill-building activities, the theme of the conference was “grit.” Students learned about the importance of this combination passion and perseverance.

Talk always turns to the weather

We experienced an unusually warm and dry summer and it seems to be continuing with a warm stretch of weather this fall.

Isn’t it amazing how when you begin a conversation with someone, inevitably, it always leads to the weather. What would we do if we didn’t have the weather to talk about. Maybe some of us would never speak – probably not a bad idea for some. Whether you’re at the supermarket, church, or just bumping into a friend on the street, the conversation always goes something like, “What a nice day,?” or “boy it sure is hot enough.” Get the idea?

Well, the other day, a colleague and I started talking about the lack of an old-fashioned “Indian Summer” this year (Sorry, no political correctness here). Which prompted me to think, “what really is an Indian summer and what determines whether we have one or not?”

An Indian summer is unseasonably warm, dry and calm weather, usually following a period of colder weather or frost in the late autumn, in September, October or early November. The Old Farmers Almanac describes it as: “During true Indian summer, the atmosphere looks hazy or smokey, and the weather is calm and dry.”

Modern ideas on what an Indian summer constitutes vary, but the most widely accepted value for determining whether an Indian summer is occurring is that the weather must be above 70 degrees for seven days following the autumnal equinox.

In Canada and the northeastern United States, a ground frost must have been present before the wave of warm weather, if the period is to be considered an Indian summer. We experienced a frost last week.

The term Indian summer has been used for more than two centuries. The origin of other “Indian” phrases are well-known as referring to North American Indians, who prefer to be called Native Americans, or, in Canada, First Nations. The term Indian summer reached England in the 19th century, during the heyday of the British Raj in India. This led to the mistaken belief that the term referred to the Indian subcontinent. In fact, the Indians in question were the Native Americans, and the term began use there in the late 18th century.

Indian summer is first recorded in Letters From an American Farmer, a 1778 work by the French-American soldier-turned-farmer J. H. St. John de Crevecoeur: “Then a severe frost succeeds which prepares it to receive the voluminous coat of snow which is soon to follow; though it is often preceded by a short interval of smoke and mildness, called the Indian Summer.”

There are many references to the term in American literature in the following hundred years or so. In the 1830s Indian summer began to be used figuratively, to refer to any late flowering following a period of decline. It was well enough established as a phrase by 1834 for John Greenleaf Whittier to use the term that way, when in his poem Memories,” he wrote of “The Indian Summer of the heart!.”

Or, Thomas DeQuincey, in a republishing of Bentley’s Works of Thomas DeQuincey, 1855, wrote: “An Indian summer crept stealthily over his closing days.”

Also, in his story The Guardian Angel, Oliver Wendell Holmes mentions “an Indian summer of serene widowhood.”

As a climatic event it is known throughout the world and is most frequently associated with the eastern and central states of the U.S., which have a suitable climate to generate the weather pattern. For example, a wide variation of temperature and wind strength from summer to winter.

Why Indian? Well, no one knows but, as is commonplace when no one knows, many people have guessed.

Some say it was from the prairie fires deliberately set by Indian tribes; from raids on European settlements by Indian war parties, which usually ended in autumn; or, in parallel with other Indian terms, it implied a belief in Indian falsity and untrustworthiness, and that an Indian summer was a substitute copy of the real thing.page12pict3

But my grandfather, who could spin a yarn with the best of them, had the best I’ve ever heard.

It seems an Indian chief was concerned about a hunting party that was delayed in returning from a late summer gathering of meat for the winter. The year had been an extremely difficult one and the tribe needed the buffalo, deer and turkey for their winter consumption and the skins for clothing.

Fearing the crops in the fields would succumb to a frost, and go to waste before the braves returned, the chief sat at his campfire, and began to feverishly smoke a pipe, until the air was filled with smokey, hot air. Once the hunting party made its return, the air was still warm enough to gather the crops that the chief feared would be destroyed by the impending cold weather.

Makes sense to me. If my grandfather says so, it must be true.

I’m Just Curious: Fragile delivery (???)

by Debbie Walker

This past week the mail lady brought a box to our door. It was marked as “fragile.” Ken was a little curious about what I had bought now. As I have said before I have a lot of interests and I honestly did not know what I had ordered that was fragile (?). I couldn’t think of a thing.

You, of course, realize by now that I am always looking for “odd” information. If I can find it already put together in one place, like a book, Yehaw, I am a happy camper!

One book is titled The Natural Superiority of THE LEFT HANDER. What fun to find out how talented I should be. It was dedicated to the citizens of Left Hand, West Virginia, population 450 and every one a Left-Hander! I did find out it is believed one person in ten is left handed. Did you know there is a belief that some plants are left handed? Honeysuckle is one of the few climbing plants that twine to the left (?). Lobsters have some left handers (?). That book was a quick read and was pretty funny.

Then I pulled out What Did We Use Before TOILET PAPER? 195 curious Questions & Intriguing Answers. Such as “Why do people have tonsils?” I was surprised that they are part of the lymphatic system and acts as part of the immune system. Well, who would have thunk that one!! And I have 194 yet to read! You know I’ll be passing on some tidbits.

Another book, Why Do We Say It? The stories behind the words, expressions and clichés we use”. And you know that I have found some of this type of info on the internet. This book comes equipped with quizzes! Can’t wait to get into this one!

You’re going to get a kick out of this next one! Can Holding In A Fart Kill You? And over 150 Curious Questions & Intriguing Answers. I have read enough to know that, Nope, holding it in won’t kill you!

(Just in case you are curious!)

And the final book is, I’m Dead. Now What? That’s just a boring book organizing our messy lives for those we leave behind. Actually that could be a comical read depending on your life and activities. If I ever get it filled out my daughter may find it helpful. Time will tell (wonder where that saying came in.)

The only thing I can think of that was “fragile” about the box of books is possibly the shippers felt as though the person receiving them may be mentally fragile! The jury is still out on that one!

OK, as for what we used before toilet paper, oh my goodness. People from different places in the world used different materials. People used everything from balled up hay or grass, to rocks (?) to even sea shells (?) to lace! And I guess about everyone knows about the old Sears catalog that came with a hole through it to hang it by in the outhouse!

Chad & Jeremy

Chad & Jeremy

This 45 features two very pleasant renditions by the talented duo from England, Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde – better known as Chad and Jeremy. For me, they have always been more interesting than Simon and Gar­funkel with their Co­lumbia albums, Distant Shores and Of Cabbages and Kings, being the most distinctive.

In 1966, Jeremy appeared as a contestant on the Dating Game and winning while Chad did a turn in Disney’s Jungle Book as the voice of Flaps the vulture. Amazon and its vendors have these two songs in streaming, CD, LP and mp3 formats while original copies of the 45 rpm start at a buck.

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (with Fritz Reiner conducting the Chicago Symphony); Falla: Nights in the Gardens of Spain (with Enrique E. Jorda conducting the San Francisco Symphony); Artur Rubinstein, piano; RCA Victor LM-2430, mono lp edition of an album that was released in stereo as LSC-2430; 12-inch 33-1/3 rpm vinyl record; released 1962.



My mono LP that I refer to above stems from a time, 1958 to about 1968, when most new LPs of every musical category came out in mono and stereo editions, mono being a dollar cheaper than stereo be­cause of its lack of separation of instruments between two speakers and stereo’s additional enhanced and vivid clarity. In recent years, however, the mono editions of select rock and jazz classic LPs are generating big bucks because of a full richness and natural ambiance that stereo supposedly lacks much of the time, clean copies of these records being especially desirable! Unfortunately, classical monos are not that much in demand.

The Rachmaninoff and Falla works are very colorful, melodically and dramatically exciting pieces of music played in the closest to perfection manner of the great Artur; the Rachmaninoff was AR’s personally favorite record of all of his output. Finally this mono LP has wonderful sound.

And, of course, both performances are available on CD!
