Dana Nelson 11x14 oil I am a tourist in my own life. Poet Lin- da Pastan may have written this line iron- ically but I have a sunnier more carefree take on it which is odd for a Scorpio. During perfect crisp fall days like this we used to roll up the sidewalks in coastal towns like Ogunquit Kennebunkport Old Orchard Freeport Damariscotta Booth- bay Harbor Bar Harbor even Portland. But now that the sense of Maine is blurring into a fashion meme viz. check- ered shirts and Bean Boots in Singapore and even a state of mind fall is a time of awakenings. Food tastes better. Just now right now the crash of waves is more re- flective during a long walk on the beach. I was born in Portland in Maine Eye and Ear Infirmary the same hospital where Stephen King was born. The last time I bragged about this a local gave me the suspicious eye and challenged What floor In spite of my local credentials Ive more than once been called a year-round summer person because I edit a city magazine that tirelessly looks for new attractions year-round. Its the greatest job in the world to get to showcase the quirky Maine I love. Put another way were all in search of a permanent vacation. No no not the way the An- gels use that phrase in their 1963 hit My Boyfriends Back. But in a freeing way where you can be commuting to work look out your car window and catch your breath when you see a deer an eagle a wave a flock of seagulls. Tourists in our own lives taking in the foliage Okay Its our luck as Mainers that at least we arent commuters in our own lives. Sorry Yankees fans. So many business people I know have moved here to chase lost childhoods summer camp canoeing on a lake tasting their first lobster rolls even just sampling sincerity. In every case I can think of theyve rediscovered themselves here. If we are tourists in our own lives and we live in a tourist destination like Maine thats a double fantasy. Yoko Ono has told me yes I regularly chat with Yoko wellonce that even she and John Lennon tried Maine on when The Dakota got too claustrophobic. She said he started at Kittery driving along the coast sayingWe should get this beautiful house hanging over the surf. Then hed crane his neck and say Look up there. Lets see that one. Then hed see a place on the next peninsula steaming out of the fog and say Hurry lets go there. He was in a hurry for beautythats how his mind worked. We dont just live our own dreams here we live everyone elses too. If Maine is the wave at the end of the mind we have to surf it. Hey-la-hey-lah. Its our responsibility so next summer we can share it with our guests.

You gave us an opportunity to relive lots of happy times viewing and meeting Maine artists. Of course the art world recently lost one of its bright lights Tom Crotty. His gal- lery gave us many hours of pleasure. Crottys pictures show a true love of Maine which you can feel through his work. The Portland Mu- seum of Art presented a magnificent exhibit of his work. It was memorable. We had a should-have moment. Many years ago we attended an auction in Port- land with friends. We were young and fac- ing mortgages and childrens school ex- penses. We marveled at a Frederick Church painting. We wondered if we could pool our money and share ownership. Com- mon sense prevailed when it sold for over 10000. When we saw the 4 million sale price in the catalog for one of his paintings we really felt we should have.

In his weekend best pulled together from Material Objects 25-year- old Sid Tripp locks the door of his Ex- change Street apartment at the Old Port Arms and heads down to see what the rest of Portland has been do- ing since Friday. The golden age of Three Dollar Deweys according to Sid Trippback when it was on Fore Street not Commercial. 28 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine CloCkwisefromtopleftBillBoardmagazinesidtripp2CourtesypurpoodoCkgolfCluBeBaysidtrippyoutuBegoldinauCtions.Comzoomer We went out almost ev- ery night of the week Sid says during our interview in his West End townhouse. Sun- day Tuesday Thursday Fri- day Saturday Sunday. On Monday wed do laundry. Wednesdays wed stay home to watch Dynasty Sid is a graduate of the Uni- versityofMainewholikemany of his friends made a bee-line for Portland after graduation. He first took a job at F. Park- er Reidys where you could go for a great steak. Today Son- nys sits in its place. It wasnt long before Sid was working on Congress at an advertising agency making more money than a 20-something knew what to do with and simply going out on the town. We all had full-time jobs. And wed be out until one two in the morning. Wed be drinking all day. Drinks were cheap food was cheap. Hot Spot F or their first stop Sids group which from what I can gather was the group would first head downstairs and hit HuShang on Exchange Street for appetizers. The Szechuan- and Hunan-style restau- rant originated on Congress and was owned by the Ng brothers Ken and Henry. With a line outside every night Eddie Fitzpatrick former editor of the Maine Sunday Tele- gram once told Portland Magazine it was the first good Chinese res- taurant in Portland. Ken Ng had the ability to re- member names. Youd dine there and then go back a year later and hed call you by name. HuShang was al- ways full. Susan Hellier who arrived in Portland in 1981 tended bar there after having worked her way up the ranks in Ken Ngs troops. I started as a dishwasher at the Con- gress Street location and Id get stoned ev- ery day between work. Id leave one job go behind the dumpster take a couple hits of a joint get into my overalls and do dishes at HuShang. She sighs. HuShang. Im sorry you missed it. Though Sue would one day manage the Lewiston location she laughs at the thought of her first promotion. I wanted to bus ta- bles but Ken said No. You are number one dish girl. Plus you dont dress good. After a promise of finding another su- preme dishwasher and taking a comb to her curly hair Sue was promoted to bussing at the second HuShang on Brown Street where she eventually became a server before tending bar on Exchange. Oh Sue poured me thousands of drinks says Sid at the mention of her name. Lure of tHe BrigHt LigHtS Sue first came to Portland when she was 21 years old for a house-sitting job and a hellu- va good time as promised by a friend from Bad News Bears Heres a painful blast from the past On January 26 1986 in New Orleans the New England Patriotsled by Tony Eason Steve Groganlost Super Bowl XX to the Chicago Bearsled by Jim McMahon above and Refrigerator Perry.

Arnold Palmer head- lines a group of senior golf tour stars at the UnionMutual Seniors Golf classic including Don January billy casper and Doug Sanders. the event was the inspira- tion of UNUM president colin c. Hamp- ton UNUM VP bud Guthrie and Maine golf great John Mills. two years later in September 1986 Palmer shot an eagle on the 16th hole to win the tournament and a 38000 first prize with coverage by the New York Times. Palmer said his 65 in the opening round put me in position for the victory. Orono. I was going to go to Boston but Julie said Its going to cost us 70 bucks a month to live in Portland between the three of us. You say yes to that. But when the girls arrived the woman they were to house-sit for had postponed her tripleaving them no job nowhere to live but a future wide open. They rented a room at the Eastland Ho- tel which in Sues words was the skeeviest place in the 80s. It was a lot of people just moving through. When you flushed the toi- let it sounded like the room had exploded. Even so her eyes light up talking about the summer it all began. The WAy IT WAs As Sue would pour to the sounds of DJ Kris Clark Sid and friends would decide wheth- er to stay or move on to Squire Morgans for free chicken wings and then to Moose Al- ley or Kayos for one of the many live bands Portland had to offer. You could go anywhere and see friends of yours playing says Sue. All of my friends at the time were musicians. Char- lie Brown he was an amazing keyboard- ist he had a band called Vito and The Groove Kings. She stops to make a mental checklist. The Clouds Buffalo Chip Tea. See now Im goingtoforgetsomeonesbandandtheyrego- ing to be pissed. If you were truly in in the music scene you might find yourself at a tiny hole in the wall on Brown Street called Genos. You had to know somebody to get in and if they didnt know you youd have to say who you were with says Sid. Punk rock had a home there at that pointthe re- ally early punk rock. Sid adds a fun fact. Where they are now used to be a porn theater. The State Theater was a porn place too. Waitaccording to Google Maps the city had two porno spots 230 feet apart. Does that mean Portlanders only had two dirty movie houses to choose from ArT-house heAven O bviously pornography wasnt the only thing available in the cinemas. In 1980 Steve and Judy Halpert took over the Movies on Exchange which of- fered independent foreign and documen- tary films to a town that craved it. There was a real need for it says Steve. There was a group of people who wanted to see those movies so we could really do just about anything we wanted to do. There was no competition. Films such as 1985s Buddies said to be the first to tackle the topic of the AIDS pan- demic brought the Exchange Street audi- ences the same films that were current in NewYorkandL.A.Portlandwelcomedfilms that touched on controversial subjectsand foreign films. The Halperts sought the rich- er films with sophisticated characters. I came to the theater and an hour early theyre lined up Exchange Street to see The Seven Samurai Steve recalls. I thought how starved people arehow many are lined up to see Kurosawa and its not even a new movie. The Japanese classic dates to 1954. The Halperts ran the Movies for more than three decades. the swan Dive on Forest Avenue harks back to the smoky days when every decent place had its own matchbook.

You couldnt watch them on televi- sion you couldnt rent them and take them home says Steve. The big big change came when cable and videotape made these films readily accessible. W hat may once have been a threat to movie theaters in Portlandvideo rentalshas had to face its own ob- solescence. In recent weeks Portland said goodbye to a long-standing landmark Vid- eoport. Owner Bill Duggan acknowledged online streaming and a changing market as contributions to the closure. Movies on Exchange survives in the form of PMA Movies at the Portland Mu- seum of Art where Steve runs the weekend screenings. And today you can find 18000 former Videoport relics available to rent at the Portland Public Library. FinishinG Out the niGht By 1130 p.m. Sid Tripp and his crew would have been making their way down to the place close to all of their hearts Three Dol- lar Deweys. Deweys wasnt at its current spot on Commercial Street then. Once upon a time at the spot where the nightclub Pearl sits to- day Three Dollar Deweys was the place to be if you were anyone in Portland Wed always try to make it there before 11 oclock because thered be a line out the door Sid says. He describes a bar we all hope to know at one point during our drinking years. Cheesy maybe but it was the place where everybody knew your name. And if no one knew your address they could send your post to Deweys. Do you know the old Deweys Sue asks me over a beer at Sonnys. I shake my head. Oh my God she says. Deweys was awe- some.

Deweys was opened by a man named Alan Eames who Sandy describes as a bril- liant shyster. He made up these fantastic stories Sandy laughs. This is the story. I know its not true hed say. Or This is all a lie. She grins. Three Dollar Deweys came from the Gold Rush. It was the name of a bar whore house. One dollar lookey two dollar touchy three dollar dewey. Completely made up by Alan Eames. Though Eames was the owner and mas- termind behind Portlands favorite bar he wasnt often seen there. Sandy says Eames would come in clean make chili and re- turn upstairs to his loft and hit his punch- ing bag. That is until one Sunday morning a U-Haul pulled up front of the bar. He left Portland with a U-Haul basically escaping. Eames ended up in Brattleboro opened another bar and became known as the Beer King. He died at age 59 in 2007. The Eames-era Deweys was filled with welcoming faces. The employees ran the place. And thats what was so good about it.

There were so many artists. They worked there hung out there. Musician Manny Verzosa was a name most everyone knew. Hes described as a rising star in a worn Press Herald clip- ping Sandy proffers. Manny died in a car accident at 30 on his way home from Cal- ifornia. Sandys voice still carries a twinge of pain when talking about him. He wrote a song and I have it here she taps her heart. The song is about Portland and the Longfellow monument. When I come home to my city by the sea Ill sit by you and Ill talk of places Ive seen Sandy describes Manny as having the gift of making everyone feel like the most special person in the world. He was also a pain in the ass she smiles affectionately. You had to sit with somebody if you wanted to sit says Sandy. You had to talk to the person next to you across from you. She describes Claude Von Schmutz one of the bartenders who squatted across the street in an abandoned building. The first night we met he pulled off one of my turquoise boots and drank cham- pagne out of it. Why Because he was French damn it. Closing Time From what Sue Sandy and Sid can all re- member Portland bars closed at 1 a.m. But in 1985 that didnt necessarily mean the parties were over. Back then after-hours clubs would open around midnight and if you brought your own booze the party would last till dawn. These clubsThe Maxx Back Streetare described to me as places out of Saturday Night Fever. The Maxx was located on York Street near where Portland Pie is today and was what Sid remembers as the after-hour club for straight people. It was the place to go to meet someone and leave with someone even if you only made it to the parking lot. Sandys sister Nancy Guimond de- scribes The Maxx as having no windows and a fog machine on the dance floor. The sisters crack up as theyre swept back to the glory days.

It still is but I mean in the 80s it was great to be 20 in Portland Maine.

You told us in the 80s that your goal was to be a real working actor. Can you name three films where youve said to yourself Yeah Im working Im close to where I want to be I feel very fortunate that Im able to make my living being paid for what Id do for free. But Ive never said to myself Yes Im here. This is where I want to be with my career. Im of the opinion that the work of an ac- tor is a continual learning process. I think of career as a retrospective term like lets look back over the career of Marlon Brando. What fellow performer has had your back through thick and thin Over the years various people have given me some good advice or a helping hand. But no fellow performer has had my back through thick and thin for any length of time. How- ever I am extremely fortunate that my fami- ly has always been very supportive my whole life. My father mother and sisters have al- ways had my back through thick and thin and I am forever grateful to them for their love wise counsel honesty and humor.

For touchstones I almost always take a flight to Boston then rent a car and drive the last 100-plus miles.

As if it wasnt already O c t O b e r 2 0 1 5 3 7 down toward Strawbery Banke then cross the water on the old bridge so that my first tracks in Maine are on Badger Island. I always stop at the Sea Hag for a couple of lobster rolls which I eat where I stand I get some lump crabmeat and lobster to go if there is a better lobster roll anywhere else on the planet Ive not tasted it. T hen I head north until I reach the outskirts of Portland and I like to drive by the house of my infancy on Catherine Street then drive by the house of my cavity-prone years on Falmouth Street then head up to the Western Promenade so I can drive by the old Carroll Street house and if theres snow on the ground Ill boot- slide down the long curved sled-track that runs along the old cemetery. I always drive through the Old Port and down Exchange Street. The first real job I ever had other than delivering the morning Press Herald was working at the old Candle Factory on Exchange Street. 1998If you could tell your 1986 self advice knowing what you know now what would you tell yourself I wouldnt have followed up The Breakfast Club with Saint Elmos Fire. Id have tried something alone rather than becoming part of another young ensemble cast. Better to dip my foot in there instead of diving all the way in. 1986Howd you get your big break What took you out of Portland It wasnt like that. I was going to college. I went to Bryn Mawr and Haverford for two years majoring in Philosophy. Then I decid- ed to go to acting school Stella Adlers act- ing conservatory in New York. n O c t O b e r 2 0 1 5 3 9 courtesybubbasamyGautheierphoto Portland after dark all night long Stalking the ghost of the 1980s is easier than you think.

Breaking lamps and burning mattresses are pass and Port- land Maine that sleepy city by the sea is the first to know. Ozzy hasnt played a show in Maine since 1988he canceled an appearance in 2008 due to illness. But there are other ways to capture thattimeofwonderwaysthatwont result in the permanent closure of a swanky rooftop pool. The Forest City offers a good 1980s throwback any night of the week. For those heavily involved in the rock- and-roll lifestyle Genos Rock Club at 625 Congress Street is the place to be. Its dark hot and loud and there are shows all week long. The former adult theater takes advan- tage of its layout making for an um inti- mate space. Theres a big bar a pool table and a lower level for taking in a show.

Portlands year-old Arcadia National Bar at 24 Preble Street helps true 1980s geeks reminisce over the 8-bit glow of classic arcade games. Domestic and craft beers are available on tap and by the can. The bar mixes up specialty drinks inspired by all things nerdy and hosts a range of game-centric events. On the floor gamers can load up on quarters and smash the buttons of some rare machines. We have arcade games that date from the early 1980s through the 1990s says Vinny bartender and pinball afi- cionado. This is definitely a great 1980s throwback spotI think Marty McFly would be very happy here.

Evan Livada of Livada Securities provides the color commentary as follows The Maine 100 is a microcosm of the businesses in Maine. It mirrors national trends. When you look at the list you see drivers like energy retail health care and lumber on the risewhats nice to see in Maine is a lot of these leaders are still fam- ily-based businesses and theyre thriving. Be A Sport Look at the jump that Olympia Sports is making. How can we call it a little niche when theyve just opened their 233rd store It goes to show people are really into the Nike and Under Armour stuff as well as the yoga styles and this fits right into Olympia Sports. The prin- cipals are local guys. But now their dominion goes south as far as West Virginia. Theyre famous for marketing slogans ike Buy one shoe and get the other one for half- price. Obviously their model is working. LocAL Hero Its fun to see a classic business like E.S. Boulos founded in 1920 sneaking up to No. 18.

Theyve always been in the right place but now its the right time. Theyve doubled in one year. This is a true Maine company. The first store was in Damariscotta in 1949. The founder had the moxie to sell inventory door to door when necessary in his old Hudson car. Now they employ over 500 in 16 locations in Maine. R.H.s sons began their careers with the firm at age 5 and 7. Everybodys still in the family running it. Mainers love that Re- nys buyers will travel all over the country to find bargains. looking For the Sweet Spot I f youre looking for the Maine mys- tique try Labries Bakery. Theyre family-owned too and employ over 200 in Old Town. The original Labries Bakery was on French Island in the mid- dle of the Penobscot River. Now they have a new banana whoopee pie. They have an 84000-square-foot facility in Old Town. When I was researching Labries I couldnt resist checking into Old Town Canoes. Old Town Canoes is no longer Maine-owned. They were bought by Johnson Wax in 2004. Names can be deceptive They make more kayaks than canoes. CraFty CraFt BeerS No. 76 is Seadog Brewers in Kennebunk es- tablished by Fred Forsley.

Found- ed in 1929 by the Universities of Maine and Mich- igan theyve been on the Maine 100 for years but they had a 92 percent increase this year. They distribute over three million mice to over 20000 scientists and investigators in over 50 countries. They have over 7000 strains of genetically developed mice. Theyre involved in every dis- ease there ever was. Its crazy. You can get a genetically tuned mouse to help you work on whatever youre working on. What tick- les me is their increasing sense of sales. Theyll have a Monday special 500 mice for a certain price. Other specials are hu- manized mice models injected in such and such a way. Their mice are part of break- through studies in diabetes female fertility glaucoma spinal and muscular affliction bone-marrow is- sues. Theyre re- ceiving multimil- lion-dollar grants from all over the country all the time. Theyre get- ting the best and brightest researchers to come to Bar Harbor and be part of the Maine event.

BY COlin W. SarGent T hesenseofMadeinMaineshapeshiftsinfrontofour eyes.ButGeorgiaOKeeffeaMainepainter All you have to do is look at her 1928 paint- ing Wave Night to feel it. Between 1920 and 1928 OKeeffe vacationed at a seaside guest house on Long Sands Beach in York for inspiration. It was here in Maine during torrid separations from her lovermentor Alfred Stieglitz that she not only painted Wave Night but also first experienced the breakthrough that led her to paint sea shells with their curves and involutions distances and intimacies. Vividly her letters from York Beach to Stieglitz appear in the book My Faraway One Selected Letters of Georgia OKeeffe and Alfred Stieglitz Volume One 1915-1933 Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Theyre deeply personal and take us straight to her creative essence. As Herv Fornieri yes the French performer writes in his Amazon review of the col- lection The two most amazing letters in this book demon- strate the almost supernatural synchronicity between these two lovers and artists. The letters were written by OKeeffe and Stieglitz on the same day September 25 1923 while she was vis- iting York Beach Maine and he was staying at their summer homeatLakeGeorgeNewYorktwohundredmilesaway.Unbe- knownst to the other of course each had been utterly entranced by the same moonlit nightbut OKeeffe saw a colorful painting and Stieglitz saw a black-and-white photograph. OKeeffe Last eveningwalking on the beach at sunset I saw a pink moonnearly fullgrow out of the gray over the green seatill it made a pink streak on the watervery faint that told you where the ocean began and the soft gray blur of space was endedAnd the moon grew hotter and hotterand the path on the water brighter and brighter till it burned so that I didnt want to look anymore Stieglitz It was a marvelous night. A white moonlight night. I never saw any night quite like itnone more beautiful For a long while before going to bed I stood at your window looking lakewardlooking at the white silencesthe white O c t O b e r 2 0 1 5 5 3 night so silent. Nothing stirred. Even the moon full round seemed not to wish to disturb the stillnessit seemed to be mov- ing slowly upwards as if on tiptoes mov- ing through a house of stillness at night when all inmates were fast asleep. All was so still the whiteness so lovelyThe hills were not hillsthey were something bathed in an untouchable spirit of lightthe line produced where this spirit met the sky spir- it was of rarest subtle beautyReally I never saw anything quite so beautifulI looked looked knew I was awake In 1927 she went alone to York Beach Roxana Robinson author of Georgia OKeeffe A Life shares. It was a difficult time for her as Stieglitz was deep in a rela- tionship with Dorothy Norman. This was painful for OKeeffe and she left. Stieglitz went to find her there the only time he ever visited the place. His race to Maine was made easier be- cause he was acquainted with Bennet and Marnie Schauffler and Bennets parents Charles and Florence Schauffler who ran the guest house where OKeeffe was stay- ing in todays geography near the Anchor- age Inn and the Sea Latch. Robinson de- scribes the view from the house as follows For Georgia the trip to Maine was a rev- elation. Standing at the edge of the Atlan- tic Ocean she felt again the bliss of a wide flat horizon the sense of boundlessness and solitude that she had valued in Texas. The house was set with a cranberry bog between it and the ocean with a boardwalk leading to the wide clean beach. The house pleased Georgia nearly empty spare and plain with good old rugs on the floors. Her own room looked out onto the ocean and the dawn. It held a big bed and a fireplace stacked with 630 Forest Ave. Portland ME 04101 800.773.4154 www.phoenixstudio.com ne art glass design Phoenix StudioRestoration and Design of Fine Art Glass since 1976 Above Sun Water Maine 1922.

Georgia spent her days walking on the long windy empty beach scaveng- ing for odd bits that she brought back set in platters of water and painted. In the evening she watched for the lighthouse to begin its quiet comforting rhythm across the night- time sky and the wide darkening beach the deep black water. Because OKeeffe describes the light- house as far away on the horizon in one of her letters it can only be Boon Island light. Considering the elastic curves of her art its hard not to think of her stopping by the Goldenrod luncheonettealready decades oldwatching spellbound as the taffy was stretched in the windows and shyly walk- ing in to buy candy kisses. In all there were four York Beach pic- tures according to Robinson. During this extraordinary period of psychic recovery and self-interrogation she gathered her- self to stun the art world. From Georgias four weeks in Maine the haunting shell se- ries was produced Her ruminations on the theme of the shell range from the high- ly representational to the purely abstract. Most powerful are the clamshells open and closed small works monumental images. In these the clamshells seam is centered in the narrow perpendicular space. The sense of monumentality is achieved by the space given to the shell within the rectangle the smooth enigmatic curves dominate filling it entirely except for the corners It is possible to argue the vulval nature of these imagesthey are it is true interior chambers lined with soft and intimate sur- faces. More central to their meaning how- ever seems to be their essential qualities of openness and closedness. The cool inevita- bility of a closed shell the quiet suspense of a barely opened one are qualities far more compelling than a purely sexual interpreta- tion would permit Other shell images bring to mind the in- ner ear where you can almost hear these paintings.

Numi- nous serene and dignified they are com- pelling and mysterious images enormous- ly powerful which resonate with a sense of privacy intimacy and inner strength. If she was becoming increasingly aware of the threat posed by Alfreds presence in her life she was beginning to perceive her own strengths in response to that threat. When we contacted Robinson about Night A Wave she ventured its value at several million and commented The painting is extraordinary. I have stood in front of it for a long time you tend to get lost in it. The effect is mesmerizing as you lose your understanding of placement. I dont know another painting like it. In it OKeeffe manipulates space and perception in a way that is profoundly sophisticated but also deeply moving intellectually challeng- ing and emotionally engaging. She interro- gates the understanding of perception here eliminating the ideas of foreground and dis- tance without losing a sense of position. It is remarkably powerful in its combination of mystery and command. Im not sure that it was a turning point it was part of what she explored all her lifethe sense of human re- lationship to the larger landscape the bal- ancing of man and nature the sense of cos- mic distance and deep velvety presence. Its one of her most powerful works. Georgia OKeeffe didnt just paint sea shells by the sea shore she took great risks at York Beach and made its psychic geog- raphy her own.

By Jo isrAelson In The Artist Way Julia Cameron writes about Synchronicity and Spirituality Once you accept that it is natural to cre- ate you can begin to accept a second idea that the Creator will hand you whatever you need for the project. Be alert there is a second voice a higher harmonic add- ing to and augmenting your inner cre- ative voice. This voice frequently shows itself in synchronicity.

Hungry EyE O c t O b e r 2 0 1 5 6 3 FromtoppeterBissellmeaghanmaurice Lively FermentsNaturally fermented food is an age-old preservation tradition the world over. So how did it become such a hot trend Join the culture club. By ClairE Z. CramEr W ere sitting in Urban Farm Fermentorys cavernous tast- ing room at the warehouse headquarters on Anderson Street in Port- lands industrial-hip epicenter East Bay- side. The floor is cement the bar is made of salvaged pallet lumber speaking of trends. There are two rows of taps in front of us none of them beer. These are ciders meads and kombuchas. Kombucha is a naturally fermented bev- erage containing good bacteria that are beneficial to human digestion its slight- ly fizzy and contains 1.5 alcohol by vol- ume. UFF is among the very few kombu- cha producers that do not pasteurize heat the beverage which kills the alcohol and the live ferment. UFFs Kombucha is pro- biotic and probiotic food and drink is cut- ting-edge healthy whereas pasteurized mass-market kombucha is little more than a feel-good soft drink. We sign on for flightsfour picks for 3and choose an assortment of flavored kombuchas and ciders which are also fer- mented and a bit higher in alcoholmore 64 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine meaghanmaurice like 6.5. The flavors are all from locally grown or foraged things says bartender Lilia Garce- lon. So there can be flavor variations from batch to batch. She delivers paddle boards with four small jars of colorful liquid nested in each. A sip of ginger kombucha is bright and refreshing. Mountain mint is subtle and earthy rather than mouthwash-flavored. Blueberry tastes of real Maine berries and like all of UFFs offerings its noticeably un- sugary. A sip of roasted tomato kombucha is improbably savory and tasty but our next selection is not. Seaweed cider is about as close as you can get to accidentally swallow- ing seawater at the beach. We distribute as far as Massachusetts and Vermont says operations manager Luke Finnemore. Locally find UFFs bev- erages at Whole Foods Aurora Provisions and the Rosemont markets. Or pick up a growler right at the Fermentory where you can request your own flavor mix. Blueber- ry-ginger is big says Garcelon. EvEn on thE half-shEll A t Eventide Oyster on Middle Street where the servers are all good-look- ing and the food is way above aver- age the menu is shot through with Asian influencestheres dashi chowder fried mussels nam prik and Thai fried chicken to name a few. Kimchionce known as a fi- ery pickled cabbage condiment for Korean foodis made here for use as a garnish and as a side dish. Half-inch ribbons of green cabbage carrot matchsticks and shredded onion are salted down then rinsed and drained says a prep cook who is garnish- ing whole lobster tails in their shells behind the counter. Then its seasoned with Kore- an chili paste ginger and a few other things and fermented for a few days. Three feet away a tall willowy woman with a ponytail is serenely shucking oysters. They put a bit of shrimp paste in the kim- chi too she says. This is spicy stuff in the range of cay- enne heat with a sour tang that comes from fermentation rather than vinegar and one heck of an aftertaste. You can have kimchi ice on your oysters here. It looks like a little cup of coral-colored sorbet but it has more zing and nuance. Kimchi is all over townin the Japanese creations at Pai Men Miyake even on the Seoul Dog hotdog at the Blue Rooster. fErmEnting vs. pickling Like sauerkraut kimchi is lacto-ferment- ed Its made in a simple traditional fer- mentation process that involves no vine- gar or sugar. Instead starches and sugars in the vegetables are converted into lactic acid through the fermenting process. Lactic acid is a natural preservative that prevents rot- ting which is why kraut and salt-brined pickles last so long. Modern food process- ing introduced vinegar as a picklingpre- servative which is fine but lacks the diges- tive benefit and adds no healthy flora to your intestinal tract. Miso is another probiotic food created through the lacto-fermenting of grains and soybeans. The Rosemont marketsa good source of assorted fresh fermented food and drinkcarry a fresh unpasteurized light miso made in Canada in the fridge case. The container has a recipe on the side for a sal- ad dressing made with miso.

There is even kefir a pro- biotic dairy drink that looks like milk but is said to be more refreshing. And apparent- ly quite popular. The kefir sells briskly at Swallowtails busy stand. Its a really good drink says owner Sean Pignatello who is also a cheesemaker. Yep IrishItalian he says of his name.

Nearby David Buchanan is making fruit smoothies at the Old Ocean House Farm stand. Hes whirring up his own fresh ber- ries with a bit of yogurt from Balfour Farms in Pittsfield. Buchanan is the author of Taste Memory about the value of heirloom fruits and vegetables. He uses apples from his Pow- nal orchard to make dry ciders he sells un- der the Portersfield label.

Hes rightthis cider tinted pale pink from the berries is delicious and subtle. Washington County Wisdom I dont know how but its taken off says Rachel Bell of Tide Mill Creamery. Shes talking about kefir. I gave it a try seven years ago and I loved it. Its much more like yogurt than milk in tasteeffervescent with a fizzy tang. Bell and her husband Nate Horton operate Tide Mill Creamery on a large extended-family farm in Edmund a hamlet between Machias and Calais. We make cheese and yogurt here we have cows and goats. We raise pigs and sell whey-fed pork. When we started produc- ing kefir we wanted to do it the tradition- al way. You put culture into cows milk and we use nice glass bottles. Digestive benefit Oh yeah way more than yogurt. She says kefir actually contributes positive microbes that can stay in your digestive system. My dad had terrible stomach problems and took medication for years. Now he feels great and just drinks kefir every week it seems to have cured it. Tide Mill also produces and distributes sauerkraut kimchi yogurt and their Lit- tle Bloom camembert-style cowgoat cheese statewide.

Care to join me I am thinking the melting pot is what needs to be melted not the various cultures reputed to be congealed into a slop- py mess inside the proverbial melting pot. Lets just put the pot on to boil and wait to see how long it takes for the myth of the melting pot to melt. Why melt the pot Lets just say its melt- able. It is not a truth. Not even close. The melting pot is a blocked a stymied a way- laid excusea bogus recipe for cultural in- terventions or interactions. Once culture is melted a nothing-to-see-here attitude can prevail. All goneno cultural diversity only the soup of commonality. Except that is not a true truth. Not all cultures are alike and not even one culture in and of itself is the same for all who are in that culture. There are better recipes and better ways to understand the differences that exist even within a culture such as French heri- tage. So I say lets put the melting pot idea down in its final resting place and believe instead in the cultures ability to go beyond the stereotypes and be seen as a living and breathing entityfull of enticing lovely ex- quisite diversities. n Rhea Ct Robbins is the author of Down the Plains in which she examines her own diversity in her French heritage.

E ugene Lafleur was a legendary lawyer in Montreal when he fell in love with Goochs Beach in Kennebunk. To get his yearly fix of Maine he brought his extended family here for scores of summers maid and butler included and rented a full floor every summer at the Sagamore Hotel later the Sea Spray. Lafleur became such a pal of the hotelier that in 1894 he let slip to Mr. Gooch that he was looking for the perfect lot to build his dream getaway. If we keep up this way well have to buy a house Gooch whose family had owned and cherished the beach and its 47552 Store Hours M-F -5 Sat 9-2 www.lpapplianceme.com L.P.Appliance and Service 54 Bridgton Road Westbrook Maine 207-797-3621 47552 Store Hours M-F -5 Sat 9-2 www.lpapplianceme.com L.P.Appliance and Service 54 Bridgton Road Westbrook Maine 207-797-3621 47552 Store Hours M-F -5 Sat 9-2 www.lpapplianceme.com L.P.Appliance and Service 54 Bridgton Road Westbrook Maine 207-797-3621 47552 Store Hours M-F -5 Sat 9-2 www.lpapplianceme.com L.P.Appliance and Service 54 Bridgton Road Westbrook Maine 207-797-3621 84 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine dunes since the Colonists spirited it away from the Native Americans said Youve been such a loyal guest just pick a lot. My treat. Its yours Now thats swag. Gooch ended up giving Lafleur such a luscious lotdirectly on the beach and north of the hotel itselfthat the seagulls are still squawking about it. The creation of this sand castle one of a kind in Maine started in 1895. From the be- ginning both the materials and the shape were revolutionary. An engineering mar- vel it was designed to be storm-proof rated at winds of 125 miles per hour. The beams were and are 14 inches thick. Still in per- fect condition the wood and paneling were delivered by rail from Vancouver Island British Columbia. Douglas fir glowed in the built-ins. The stunning wrap-around porch and deck grabbed huge views of the Colo- ny Hotel then the Breakwater Court across the Kennebunk River as well as the heart of the bowl or crescent of the beach that is shimmeringly front and center. Local ship- builders created the signature curved roof ends by steaming them at the shipyard. The final touch Red-cedar shingles. When this emperors boathouse was unveiled in 1896 it was the first cottage on Goochs Beach. The enormous Romanesque arch in the paneled living room with Inglenook seats built in to either side is beyond just the per- fect place to enjoy a crisp fall. If I could have that nook and then the bay window to look at the sea it would be A visitor goes silent. I just love it. The dining room also faces the beach as well as the library. Up- stairs there are five-plus bedrooms so clas- sic Ralph Lauren ought to do a photo shoot up there. Sixty years later the Lafleurs sold 93 Beach Avenue called The Lafleur House or The Boathouse to Franois Guertins fam- ily only the second family to live here in The diamond mullions used to go across the front dormers as well and are worth tracking down. O c t O b e r 2015 85 House of tHe MontH FromleFtColinW.SargentjeSSeStenbak4 120 years. When Eugene Lafleur owned it the lot went all the way from the beach to Goochs Creek. They had cows for milk. Lafleur passed away in 1929 during the stock mar- ket crash. Coincidence maybe He was in- volved with the stock exchanges in Montre- al Toronto. His law firm still exists. My father was shown the house by Charlie Cole. He walked around the place and bought it in 15 minutes for 16000 from Mr. Lafleurs daughter with negotia- tions by telephone. Not only did Franois grow up here he undoubtedly holds the land-speed record for the time it takes to drive from Quebec to Goochs Beach. For mere mortals its a strong five hours. But when he wasnt work- ing in the Guertin family feed mill business still a thriving concern he was a driver on the Trans-Am circuit all over the eastern U.S. and across Canada. As his love for Ken- nebunk deepened with his driving skills he took the time from five hours down to four hours. First I drove back and forth in my sisters 1965 MGA. She was traveling and left me her car for a full summer. Then I got a jade-green 1965 Formula 5 Plymouth Bar- racuda. Four hours lighting up Route 26 to and from the Canadian border. Then I bought Roger Penskes Camaro Z-28. Did anybody even whisper three hours Its im- possible to do that anymore he says. What about speeding tickets He smiles. What police car could have caught up with him My father died in 1977 he said my mother two years later. Its been a great run for Franois who loves the house so much he provided much of the historical back- ground for the beginning of this article. But its time to sell and in this case 93 Beach Avenue is for sale by owner. The price is 2.375 million. For direc- tions to this house ask any surfer in Maine.

No one who knew us would have said we were close. He and my mother divorced thirty years ago shortly after I had left our New Jersey home to pursue my life. Not long after that he remarried suddenly and settled in a small coastal town in Maine to restart his own life. Good my brothers and I joked. That ought be enough distance for everyone. Over the next few decades my dad and I saw each other rarely. We spoke only occa- sionally. Yet when we did he always invited me up to Maine. An open invitation Pal he would shout into thephone.Itsglorioushere.Comeonup. I would demur and the strain of a scarred past and an unrealized present would rise up quickly. Rather than shine light on what was and wasnt there we rushed off the line and back to our individual lives. As my own children grew they began asking why they had never met GrandpaI could give them no reason good enough so one summer morning we set out for Thomaston. On that lone trip north we were received graciously if tentatively. My kids loved meeting their grandfather and his wife. I found it odd that scattered around his home were long-forgotten relics from my childhooda chair a small painting of a boat a bookcase.

While pleasant our brief visit didnt en- gender a passion in either of us to bridge whatever gap the years had etched. Then last winter I heard my father was sickdyingin South Carolina where he and his wife had gone to wait out a particu- larly bad New England freeze. He had been sent home from the hospital to a home that was not theirs. I surprised myself and boarded a plane in order to be by his bed. He was at times eerily lucid. I said to him things one says at the bedside of the dyingtruthful loving things. Tears stained both our cheeks. I left him there and returned home to work. The next weekend he was hanging on and I went again to him. He was remote now near- ly gone. There was no conversation. Each massive effort required for his intermittent breath brought him only closer to death. I held his hand and whispered to him.
