Theyre driven to fly north along the blackest of turnpikes at dizzy heightswhether they like it or not. Particularly in May yellow warblers and scarlet tanagers flicker above us unseen to- ward the Northern Boreal Forest in Cana- da during migration. Also black-throated greenwarblersindigobuntingsrose-breasted grosbeaks orange-crowned warblers Ameri- can redstartsan estimated three billion birds says Dr. Jeff Wells of the Bore- al Songbird Initiative. Hitting the night highway from winter getaways in South America Central America and Mexico Millions of them pass over the nighttime landscape of Maine bumping into each other plunging on. Why do they do it Why do we go to L.L. Bean The magnetite in the back of our heads tells us this is the cool place to be. How do we know the birds are flying over us Some preliminary observational papers published by the late 1800s took note of the phenomenon Wells says. While few could see the birds we could hear them Some ornithologists and birders were aware that some thrush- es could be identified by their calls as they flew overhead at night in the early and mid 1900s and a few ornithologists began using acoustic techniques ra- dar and ceilometers to study nocturnal migration beginning in the 1950s and 1960s. There has been a surge in research to identify the nocturnal flight calls of birds in the last 10 to 20 years. Also northbound over Portland in night- ly swarms purple finches and ru- by-crowned kinglets. True tourists many touch down en route and vaca- tion with us here in Maine. Maybe a Baltimore oriole winters in Mexi- co swoops down and lands in a tree at Laudholm Farm. Yeah this place feels right. Well stay here for a while. No wonder songbirds named red- eyed vireos cool their heels here after so much night driving. See we returnfollowing instinct directed by desire. Were ships in the night seeking our ports. Dont try to make sense of it as we fight for park- ing spaces on Exchange Street at night. Were here because we need to be here. We cant help ourselves.

Saying Franklin has sectioned off the East End from its bustling downtownthe haves from the have-nots is confusing. Are the Haves in those large Victorian mansions ringing the Prom or are they in the slums of downtown If the Haves are downtown then the Have-nots must be in the man- sions with the great views. I wish I could be a Have-not if thats the case. If Franklin sharply divides the pen- insula from I-295 to the waterfront nei- ther efficiently or with Old Port shoppers in mind then what is his plan to in- crease efficiency Making Franklin nar- rower or slowing and congesting traffic doesnt help. Are shoppers to wend their way through the local streets If so how is that more efficient Portland Planning Board Chairman Stuart OBrien feels that I-93 through Boston was a bad idea. Can you imagine going through Boston with- out it The original road was built in the 1950s to handle 20000 yes 20000 cars a day but had 75000 on it by 1959 and now carries about 200000 with its new design. A better idea is just what The reader should understand that a movement is underway in Portland right now that is attempting to shut down the citys arterials. The 100000 employees and visitors are of no importance. Frank- lin State and High streets Outer Con- gress and Spring streets are all in a re- design process to make them narrower less efficient and congested in an effort to make Portland more walkable. That would be a disaster for the city. Its walk- able enough.

IntervIew by Kelsey HarrIson F ounded in 1970 the Theater at Mon- mouth was named the Shakespear- ean Theater of Maine by the state legislature in 1975. Dawn McAndrews has been producing artistic director since 2011 and she likes to plan each summers sched- ule around a theme. This ones a killer. How did you come up with the Magic Murder and Mayhem concept I start working on season planning well over a year in advance. The plays start to come together first and then the theme emerges. Magic murder and mayhem came from a desire to explore the mag- ic in theater and the supernatural in Shakespeares plays. Our mission is to present innovative approaches to Shake- speare and other classic playwrights. Our audience has come to expect well see two plays by the Bard. Whats in the line-up this summer and how do you organize the overlapping runs of the plays The most difficult part is figuring out how to take the cast in each play and build the tracks each actor will take on for the sum- mer. As we rehearse and perform in rotat- ing repertory the actors have to be working on each role simultaneously. Each week in July we bring all the technical elements to- gether and open a different play each Friday nightfour weeks in a row. So Friday night you perform in The Winters Tale Saturday matinee in Fool of the World Saturday night The Turn of the Screw Sunday afternoon Fallen Angels then Sunday night A Mid- summer Nights Dream followed by a post-performance discussion. In between the magic elves come in and switch the sets from one to the other and back again. On Mon- day everyone collapses and gets ready to start it all again.

W hat I first noticed about the Old Port were all the differ- ent facets of nightlife occur- ring within the same few blocks. Walking along Fore Street on any given Saturday night youll spot a young flirty couple arm in arm headed to Wharf Street to catch a live show at Oasis. Meanwhile the same couple only 20 years older heads into Central Provisions for their long-awaited date night. Music floods the streets. Depending on where youre walking youll hear a local cover band playing Mumford and Sons or Kenny Chesney blaring out of Bonfire. And as campy as it can be its hard not to be swept up by it all. You know what I mean. Were all guilty of taking on a shot or one more beer after hearing American Girl blaring out of Old Port Tavern.

Sargent Comes Alive Maine State Pier M aine State Pier will vibrate on June 27 with an open-air con- cert featuring two class acts Pe- ter Frampton and Cheap Trick. Frampton is in town more than youd guess and is look- ing foward to it. Youll be performing outdoors when you come here ducking seagulls. Any adjustments Im used to it. In 2014 I wrote the title song and six others for the pas de deux ballet Hummingbird in a Box. It was unusual be- cause I played onstage while dancers flew around me. The only other time Id per- formed with dancers was with David Bow- ie on his Glass Spider Tour where there were as many dancers as musicians. In the mid- dle of Lets Dance a dancer stepped on my pedal and turned me off. Another time a dancer stepped on my distortion pedal and blew my sound completely makes a loop- ing squelching sound. But I enjoy coming to Maine. Ive come up many times because Bob Ludwig is in Portland. Once we were playing in the Man With Golden Ears tour and I brought my whole band over there. Since the mid- to late-1980s hes done all of my mastering. Do people try to fit you into a gorgeous box called Frampton Comes Alive Is Hummingbird in a Box a response to that Before my brother was born when I was un- der five wed go to my grandparents for af- ternoon tea and cake. My grandfather had been in the navy for two world wars. One day he took out a very decorative wood- en box. I have something I want to show you. Its magic. Open it. It was a solid block. Sealed. There was no way to open it. I held it up and turned it around looked at the wooden panels. You have to learn the secret of opening it he said. You have to make the right moves. He slid one little piece of wood one way then another. In- side the secret interior was a little drawer that concealed a false bottom. When he slid that open there was a stuffed humming- bird. That was the prize. Hed picked it up during his travels to Asia. Later I taught my brother how to open it. Now my brother has the box. The songs in the ballet are full of reveals too. So with you theres no sense of Oh no hes going to play his new material. Ive always wanted to write something that would be different from anything Ive ever written before. Its a selfish thing. I want to break new ground. Its funny they call it The Merchandising Moment when a musi- cian plays new material. Or the T-shirt Mo- ment. Time to get a beer hon. My audience knows theyre going to get at least one or two new songs whenever I come onstage. You explore silences in The Promenades Retreat. Silences are the best notes you dont play. They make the notes you do play so much more important. Especially with Prome- nades Retreat theres a tension an expec- tation and youve just got to wait for it. A re- petitive little riff just builds and builds and builds. Out of nowhere comes the chorus. Speaking of boxes your Huffington Post interviewer suggested The seventies was sort of the beginning of teen idols Were you wondering what about Elvis Ella FrankieWolfgang Mozarts a good example of a teen idol.

Youre just east of the Old Port but it feels as if there are still things to dis- cover over here. Meanwhile back at the wine shop Peter Hale explains that all our wines are organ- ic or biodynamic and most are sulfite-free. Biodynamic farming is like organic farm- ing in that it doesnt involve chemicals but the use of the term biodynamic is not reg- ulated by the U.S. government. What these classifications do indicate though is that we dont carry any mass-produced garbage wines here. There is however a heavenly under 14 table. Value shoppers know there can be real finds in such sections and chatting with wine shop owners is the way to find them. Peter describes a snappy 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Clot del Pila Les Cargolines as similar to a Rhne but more prune than fresh berry. His description proves apt.

IntervIew By Jeanee DuDley M AY 2 0 1 5 4 3 C omedian actor and transgender activist Ian Harvie began his career in the Old Ports comedy clubs. His fame took a great leap for- ward with his co-starring role in Transpar- ent Amazons Golden Globe-winning 2014 series di- rected by Jill Soloway. Born in Portland Harvie 46 grew up in Bridgton. After a year at Lasell College in Boston he left school knocked about and traveled for a few years before set- tling in Portland. In 1994 he interned in the design de- partment at Maine Publishing Corp. which published Maine Times and Casco Bay Weekly. In 1996 he started his company WebSmith in Portland. He cut his teeth in stand-up at the Comedy Connection here and in Bos- ton. In 2006 he uprooted to Los Angeles to take a shot at the big-time. Growing up were you influenced by Maine legends like Tim Sample I remember hearing Tim on the radio around the holidays but I was more of a TV kid than an album kid. I was all about Flip Wilson and Carol Burnett. I loved shows like Laugh-Inall those comedy shows where people cracked themselves up in the middle of the scene. Howd you get into the comedy scene here I owned a web development company in Portland about 13 years ago. There I got a booklet in the mail from some random guy offering comedy writing lessons at Portland Comedy Connection. The guy teach- ing it Tim Farrell had done writing for The Daily Show he still runs the class and were good friends. He sent his pamphlet out to a bunch Ian Harvie has toured extensively with friend and mentor Margaret Cho.

Id always wanted to do something like that. But I was scared so I let it sit on my desk for a few weeks. Then a few days before it started I called Tim. He answered said he had one spot left which I guess is a great sales pitch. What was the class like It was in a comedy club at night in the dead of winter so it was freezingeverybody in parkas and turtlenecks and hats. They had all the lights on like it was show time. Tim had us talk about our comedy idols and why we liked them the whole thing start- ed out as a conversation about how we find the things we think are funny. He had us write down our ideas and thenby surprise he had us get up on stage and read to the class. Its a good thing he doesnt warn you beforehand because I think a lot of people wouldnt have shown up. At the end of the six-week class our friends and parents came and cheered us on. After that performance I was hooked. I took the class again and end- ed up with a guest spot at the club which turned into a hosting gig and then teach- ing. Four years in I realized I had to move if I wanted to make a career of it. It could have been New York but the warm weath- er tipped the scales so I went to Los Angeles.

M AY 2 0 1 5 4 5 methey wouldnt be surprised. Its funny my mom thinks Im a much bigger adven- turer than I am. Ill call them to say hello and she says Ooh where are you now I do travel a lot and I have been to a lot of cool places but she thinks its some wild safari. I also think they thought comedy was a natu- ral fitwhen I was a kid I was an entertain- er. My cousins and brothers and I would put on shows and my job was to come in at in- termission and do comic relief. Of course back then I wrote horrible jokes that made no sense. When did you realize you could really make it I didnt come to L.A. to make money. You come here to meet people and do lots of dif- ferent things. You dont make much money doing stand-up in the clubs. The goal is to meet somebody working on a cool project that you can be a part of then you go out on the road to make money. A bout six months after I moved to LA I met Margaret Cho who took me on the road with her. That was when I got to experience this business on a larger scale and she really showed me how it could work. It works if you hustle and bust your ass and are patientas long as you dont give up before the miracle or before the next great thing you get to do. She was my exam- ple for that and where my belief kicked in. I was going to pursue this whether the money came or not. Making art and getting paid is the beauty of it. Tell us about working with Cho. Shes incredible. She has a really good eye for Maine Woolens was founded in 2009.

Did you ever think youd be an actor on a Golden Globe-winning show I think all of us collectively felt it was real- ly special. I know it was for Jill Soloway in part because its about her real family. I dont know if we knew the reach it would have and how many people it would speak to. What do you think Transparent has accomplished in terms of visibility for the transgender community Whats happened is part of a revolution around the way people see trans people. The show is largely about family and what love is You stand by your family no matter what. The show is about Will you love me if I The answer is always a resounding yes no matter what. I am really glad this conver- sation is happening about trans identities. I think trans people are finally seeing them- selves portrayed in the media in a way that is honest and real and not as horrible stereo- types people have shown over the decades. Trans people have families we know how to love we have relationships we work. Even in my stand-up I talk about who I am and tell my story. People walk away having a new context. Then to have that recogni- tion by the Hollywood Foreign Press Gold- en Globes GLAAD Media Awards and Jill winning at the Directors Guildit was like Right they see it too. I mentor about a dozen trans youths and some adults. Im doing a benefit at the end of this month for CampOut an LGBT youth camp getting started. Ive donated time to TransYouthSpeakanorganizationforevents to share stories with other young people. In Seattle I love to do benefits with the Gender Justice League. I also love doing PRIDE.

Id missed the deadline to apply but that didnt mean I couldnt DIY it. I hadnt ridden Amtrak in a while com- pared to planes theres such a Brobdignag- ian amount of leg room I think Ive wan- dered into business class by mistake. My plan is to undertake a structural analysis of the mystery Ive written but before weve left the station Im already feeling such a strong tug towards my destination that I dive into a poem I wrote years ago about counting the cars of an endless freight train in Pittsburgh with my father who was born there. When I realized in grad school that half of writing is revisingand that I did not under- stand how to revise poetryI knew Id nev- er be a poet much as I appreciated the genius of my Nobel-laureate professors critiques grilling me about what each and every word was doing on that page. Re-reading my train poem as I ride the rails reminds me of his lit- mus testif I dont know it doesnt belong thereand by some non-Newtonian law of motion the real train sweeps my mind along with it too swiftly to stall out over the train in my poem. Limbo is a safe space to experi- ment even in a field thats not your forte be- cause nothings permanent.

As we wend our way west from Philly Main Line mansions of Wissahickon schist give way to white clapboard farmhous- es with unmistakably Amish laundry flap- ping in the breeze. This already reminds me of Maine as we pull into Harrisburg where bearded and black-hatted or black-bonnet- ed and shawled folk cluster on the platform to meet the train I could almost be back in Houlton where theres an Amish colony and general store in Ludlow just down the road from my great-aunt and uncles farm.

Steamed and chilled lobster tails are dressed with mayo shallots and fine herbs. Unique vessels and service points are traditionally French. For example snails in their shells and the iconic French on- ion soup bowls. Its fun and festive and a big part of the bistro experience is the so- cial aspect sharing dishes such as fondue and raclette. Shes right.

To clear up this question I spent some time with Diane Gadbois at her home and asked her some very personal questions that I am sure were difcult to answer. You see George and Diane Gadbois are private people who give more than their share back to the community and the last thing they want is to be noticed for their generosity. They started Eastern Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning 40 years ago on a wish and a prayer and now have the largest family-run carpet cleaning and water damage restoration company in the area. Back to the pink van If you notice on the rear side panels are the words Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This national founda- tion has brought forth womens cancer awareness promoted ex- tensive cancer research and although not exclusive to the cause is nationally recognized by the color pink. The cost to place this name on the van will not be discussed here but let us say the yearly donation is signicant and the proceeds all go to the cure for womens cancer. Diane was introduced to breast cancer early in life when her mother had a radical mastectomy. She remembers her mothers doctor telling her sister and her one of you will have cancer. Not a pleasant thought at the time but it stuck with Diane and saved her life. Twice after the normal tests and screenings for cancer Diane received a clean bill of health and relatively soon after while doing a self-examination found a lump. Not once but twice Fortunately they were found in time and Diane is doing ne but she wants to get the message out that as important as it is to get regular screenings it is equally as important to be your own advocate and make double sure with a self-examination. So when you see the pink Eastern van go by remember its just Diane reminding you even if you have had the tests be your own advocate and make a regular self-examination part of your life because it could save it. It did for Diane 63 Pleasant Hill Road Scarborough P 885.1499 F 885.9410 infoeasterncarpetcleaning.com For well over a year now many of us have seen the pink van yearly donation is signicant and the proceeds all go to the cure Clean Up Cancer Home Improvement Our City Your Way 207 775-4339 portlandmagazine.com Culture Nightlife Legends Style SUBSCRIBE TODAY Call Toll Free 1-855-PORTMAG 1-855-767-8624 TMTMTM PORTLANDMaines Award-Winning City Magazine www.cldesignlandscape.com P.O.

Sargent fromtopfranciosGaGneLynnDube Restoration Drama For sale the 1914 mansion that reflects the natural goodness of Maine. R eturn to a place lit by a glass of milk. Thats the title of a book of poems by Charles Simic but it also fits the gentle spirit of 90 Vaughan Street in the West End where the kings of Oakhurst Dairy once lived. Donald Bennett the dairys owner pur- chased it in 1955 says its listing agent. Oakhurst presidents Stan Bennett and Bill Bennett grew up here too. So did their sis- ters Althea Bennett McGirr and Jean Bennett Driscollwhowerealsoactiveinthecompany. Now you can pour yourself your own cold one in a Colonial Revival palace de- signed by Boston architectural firm of Wait Copeland for Clinton W. Davis. Accord- ing to a monograph by Earle Shettleworth 80 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine House of tHe MontH LynnDube Jr. Davis was born in Portland on June 2 1888 the son of Walter G. Davis and Mary Howard Wildes Davis. His grandfather William G. Davis co-founded the Portland Packing Company with Samuel Rumery and James P. Baxter. Clintons father became a partner in this successful food canning business and Clinton worked his entire ca- reer in the management of the firm retir- ing as president when the company closed in 1954. He died four years later in 1958 at the age of 70. Clinton Davis was a Yale graduate like his brother Walter G. Davis Jr. who in 1921 would take residence at nearby 155 Western Promenade. Both brothers considered their Western Prom houses their winter homes summering in two more opulent dwellings off Ocean House Road in Cape Elizabeth.

Dont they ever read the sign I thought to myself. WELCOME TO FREEPORT COMMU- NITY LIBRARY. PLEASE SILENCE YOUR MOBILE PHONE BEFORE ENTERING THE BUILDING. Then I realized it was my phone hid- den at the reference desk. If it was ringing it was Jeff. I ran from Large Print as quietly as I could. Thankfully a line at Circulation started buzzing as I got to Reference. Sur- reptitiously extracting my mobile I pushed the answer button as I strolled with imagi- nary purpose to non-fiction. Hey I said. Hey. Hows my favorite librarian today Im good. Hows my favorite ex-con Ive got good news. I met with the doc at the VA today. Theyve concluded Im a so- ciopath not a psychopath. Whats that difference I asked. Well a psychopath will kill you then go get groceries. For him its just another Tues- day. But a sociopath will kill you then feel bad about it afterwards. Would he still do his grocery shopping Yes just without his regular joie de vivre. Anyway because Im capable of feel- ing remorse Doc says thats a good sign. When I broke that guys nose I did offer to set it for him after I unlocked the door. That showed I was concerned about his well being. So what happens next I asked. I keep seeing the Doc and making my probation appointments. I need to get an apartment. Ive been sleeping on the table at the tattoo parlor. I didnt realize that I said. Yeah I like the small space. Everything feels too big since I got out of jail. Hey Ive gotta go get some smokes. Later. The call ended. Hed shared his news and that was it. I would wait and wonder until the phone rang again. n Voted Best Cheap Eats 22 years of great italian food Pasta-Pizza-Sandwiches-BeerWine 50 seat air-conditioned Dining Room Free Parking Open 11-8 Mon-Sat ANTHONYS Italian Kitchen A Lot of Italian For Not Much American 151 Middle St Portland 774-8668 www.anthonysitaliankitchen.com TWODEGREESPORTLANDSPORTLYNEVENTfromtop1.BenHoffmannLukeCyrKateHoweJenLopardoKevinCyr2.JenniferHutchinsBritVitalius EliseLoschiavo3.PraveenRajJasonWildhagenJeanPaulNgiruweraAssumptaKarireCocoNiyonshutMorganMitchellMuraliKr4.JeffBienkowski Mariah Cunningham Michael Wilson Amanda Powell 5.
