Business is brewing
at Shapleigh shop
By Shelley Burbank
[email protected]
The Brew Shoppe, which is
part of One Earth Natural Food
Store in Shapleigh, has recently expanded due to local interest
in homebrewing, organic and
Maine-based wines and beers,
and the enthusiasm of shop’s
manager-operator, Tim Aballo.
“We started out in a little corner
space in the store, and in December we moved here into the old
One Earth space,” Aballo said
while standing behind the counter in the well-stocked, well-organized shop.
The Brew Shoppe has been
growing since its inception as just
one of many sectional offerings of
One Earth which has been selling
organic and health foods, bulk
foods, natural medicinal products, natural cleaning and bodycare items, books and more in
Shapleigh since 2005. Constantly
looking to evolve, One Earth began selling homebrew supplies
and a carefully-curated selection
of beers and wines in the shop in
2011, first in a corner of the store
and then in a small, separate room
off the main floor. When One
Earth moved into a larger building
on the property – a former barn
which now also houses the store’s
community learning space, The
Mind-Body Studio – the former
retail space became available.
It was time for The Brew
Shoppe to expand, thought Diane and Alyssa Laitres, the mother-daughter owners of One Earth
who have seen their store flourish
and grow over the years.
Luckily, Alyssa’s fiance, Tim
Aballo, who had worked 15 years
as an auto mechanic in Saco and
was tired of the long commute,

Life at the station

A resident of Dover, New
Hampshire, John Malia is nearing
the end of living and working for
four years at the Waterboro Fire
Department. A student enrolled in
Southern Maine Community College’s (SMCC) 27-year-old livein paramedicine program, Malia
graduates in May. He is already a
graduate of SMCC’s fire science
program. During his four years in
Waterboro, he has lived for three
years at Central Fire Station and
one at South Station.
Waterboro Fire Department
(WFD) is one of 17 departments
in New Hampshire and Maine
that participate in training 80
SMCC live-in fire science and
paramedicine students. In his first
year in Waterboro, Fire Chief
Matt Bors brought construction
costs for housing students to the
Town Meeting for a vote. There
are five slots available for students at WFD including one twobed male room and one two-bed
female room at Central, and one
bed at South Station. Deputy
Chief Lisa Bennett coordinates
the live-in program, and Captain
Dan Roy is the student advisor.
Each student is assigned to an engine company and participates as
a member of that company.
When asked how he came to
decide on a career in firefighting,
Malia said, “I’m first generation.
No one else in my family has
been a firefighter. I was a mediocre student in high school until
I got involved with a one-year
program at the Dover Fire Department, and I was hooked! My
grades skyrocketed, and I completed Firefighter 1 and 2 and was
certified to fight interior fires by
graduation. The Dover folks really mentored me, and I decided
on SMCC and entered their livein draft in May 2011, was drafted
by Waterboro, and started in August.”
Malia and all the other members of his “draft class” started
with a fire academy in Falmouth
and Yarmouth led by members of
all participating departments, and
he spent the next two years taking
fire science classes at SMCC and
documenting a minimum of 40
hours a week of work at WFD. “I
actually worked quite a bit more
than that most weeks,” he added. The work at WFD counted
as an elective in his program. At
the completion of that program,
Malia entered the paramedicine
Malia and Deputy Chief Bennett meet three times a semester
to set and assess progress toward
goals that will result in his being
a fully-trained firefighter. He and
the other students provide increased value to the department
as they progress. “When I started
I was 18, and now I’m 22. When
I started and we got a call, I was
like a puppy, all excited to go on a
call. Now I am more responsible.
I ask what is the address, fire or
medical, I paint a picture of what
is needed in my head, make a diagnosis but keep an open mind. I

experience to bear. There are so
many kinds of calls, thousands
a year, and they can be a search,
structure fire, motor vehicle incident, medical, a dog in the lake.
The scope of possibilities is so
Malia mentioned that it is not
common for a student to stay in
one department all four years.
“It has been so valuable to me to
be in a department that does not
have a lot of full-time staff. I get
to really work as a member of my
company here. One night my former roommate, Erik Jackson, and
I were together on a call to an interior fire on New Dam Road. The
rest of the team was on a medical call, so we were able to get
the apparatus to the fire quickly
and went into action as others arrived on the scene. We got there,

The Waterboro Planning
Board approved the Dollar General site plan application on
Wednesday, Jan. 21 at their regular meeting, despite several planning board member resignations
and lack of an entrance permit
from Public Works Director Doug
Foglio. Kurt Clason chaired the
meeting, following the resignation of Chair Tim Neil who had
resigned on Jan. 15.
The Jan. 21 meeting followed
a previous week’s workshop between the Planning Board, Dollar
General representatives, Foglio
and Fire Chief Matt Bors, both
of whom had expressed concerns
with the original site plan from
the start of the application process
in September of 2014.
Bors’ main concerns related to
site access by fire fighting apparatus and access to water for fire
suppression. When assured that
Dollar General’s insurer would
write in sufficient clauses to cover this, Bors agreed to drop his
objections to the current site plan.
Foglio’s involvement in the
site plan approval process was
based on a section of the existing
Town of Waterboro Highway Entrance Ordinance, which calls on
him as Director of Public Works
to determine that the design, location and construction of such
driveways, entrances, or approaches adequately protect and
promote the safety of the traveling public. The Entrance Ordinance gives the Director of Public
Works final say in granting an entrance permit, without which the
Code Enforcement Officer cannot
grant a building permit.
When Foglio offered what
he considered effective ways to
manage traffic on Chadbourne
Ridge Road, especially by large
semi-trailer delivery trucks, the
Dollar General representative
stated that the company had met
minimum standards. Dollar General Project Manager Bob Gage
said that to comply with either of
Foglio’s suggestions, to build a
separate truck entrance on Route
5 or move the current entrance on
Chadbourne Ridge Road farther
back from Route 5, which would
necessitate buying more land,
would not be financially feasible
for the company. He stated, “We
feel we are meeting all the requirements and exceeding some
with the plan we have presented
to you.” Foglio disagreed and

For wine lovers, a selection of
organic, sustainable and Mainemade wines are offered. Meads
and hard cider are available, as
well, from nearby producers. In
fact, local is very important to
The Brew Shoppe.
“We really try to bring in as
much local as possible,” said Alyssa. The shop carries Lyman’s
Funky Bow beer as well as those
of Maine-based brewers Allagash, Shipyard, Geary’s and Gritty’s. For Maine-sourced wines,
customers can choose from
Younity, Blacksmith’s, and Bartlett as well as mead from Portland
Meadworks and cider from Ricker Hill Orchards and Urban Farm
Fermentory which also supplies
kombucha to the natural food
The Brew Shoppe also offers
a section called “Value Wines”
which are good-quality wines that
Laitres and Aballo have been able
to bring in at a discount--a good
way to try better wines at a lower
And they aren’t finished yet.
The shop is finding more to offer
all the time. Future plans for the
shop include beer tastings, beginner classes in home brewing, and
beer and wine-themed gift items.
They already synchronize their
offerings with the Springvale
Public House (owned by Adam
Laitres and partner, Jessica Proto), coordinating tap and bottled
beers for the week. “We started
to learn that we had quite a community of homebrewers here,”
said Alyssa who noted that people in the area are interested in
do-it-yourself activities and in the
trendy fermented-foods movement in nearby Portland.
Alyssa and Diane have always
been on the cutting edge, it seems.
When they looked into opening a
natural food store in rural Shapleigh, the banks were skeptical
about the viability of that market
in the area. Local people were enthusiastic, however, and One Earth
soon proved the bankers wrong.
In just two years the Laitreses had
a loyal customer base, and Alyssa and Diane were able to buy
the property at 191 Emery Mills
Road which, according to Diane,
has been a mercantile space since
the mid-1800s. Continuing to expand opportunities for themselves
and their customers, they opened
the Mind-Body Studio two years
ago, and practitioners now teach
a variety of classes from yoga to
meditation and other health-conscious activities and crafts.
The Brew Shoppe, too, is an
integral part of the growth of this
forward-thinking business. “We
are excited to bring this to the
community,” Aballo said, sharing some advice with the public
which also happens to be his motto for the shop. “Don’t just stand
there. Brew something!”
field experience from working in
the ambulance. He hopes for fulltime employment, has applied to
four or five departments, and has
his name on the list in his hometown of Dover, New Hampshire.
If he does not immediately find
full-time work, he plans to work
per diem with the hope that a fulltime position will open up and his
experience will work in his favor.
Captain Dan Roy, liaison and
advisor to the live-in program
says, “It’s good to have them here.
They help with calls, and it’s
good for them to run calls, work
rescue, learn all the apparatus.
They’re here to learn, and they
really grow as professionals over
their time here. Johnnie will be
leaving soon, which will be a real
loss. He’s grown tremendously in
his time here.”

was ready for a change as well.
He came on board full time to
run the expanded brew shop. A
homebrew enthusiast himself
(and a professional musician with
a punk rockabilly band called The
Outsiders), Aballo gets to share
his passion and knowledge about
making beer with others. “I like
the hoppy stuff, the IPAs, but also
pale ale, pilsner, stout. I’m pretty
much all over the place,” he said
when asked about his favorites.
The shop offers everything the
homebrewer requires including
various extracts, beer ingredient
kits, wine kits, hydrometers, oak
chips, corks, caps, beer cappers,
bottles and more. “You can get
everything you need to get started,” Aballo assures. “We are happy to special order, too.”
Customers who enjoy good
wine and beer without all the hard
work of making it themselves will
find what they need here, as well.
A wall of beer greets the visitor
at the door--selections that Aballo
picks after studying the website which rates
brews on a scale of zero to 100.
“Everything here is rated 80 or
better,” Aballo said. “It’s kind of
cool to experiment and get new
stuff in.” For a set price, customers can create their own six-pack
from the choices on the wall, and
Aballo also makes suggestions by
showcasing “Tim’s Pick 6 of the
American Legion Brown-Emmons Post 134 of Alfred
& White-Tibbett’s Post 55 of Limerick present:

hydrant, I went in and we were
able to save the home. Instead of
losing the entire structure, it was
contained to one room. That felt
really good to accomplish that,
and I wouldn’t get that level of
experience and opportunity for
that level of accomplishment in
some other departments.”
Asked what stands out for him
in his time in Waterboro, he recalled, “It was pretty rough early
on in my time here. There was a fatal fire, a young suicide, the death
of a friend of the department, and
we were all dealing with loss.”
Asked how they deal with such experience, he said, “You have to stay
on the job, need to build a wall and
not get attached, stay distant with
emotions. We get training in stress
debriefing, and when we need it,
get help. PTSD is a real issue, and
part of our training is in how to
recognize it and get help. That kind
of experience is what builds the
tight bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood among all who deal with
public safety every day.”
When he graduates in May,
Malia will be awarded Associate
in Applied Science degrees in both
fire science and paramedicine. He
will have 1,000 hours of paramedical experience in clinical and field
settings. The clinical is in a variety
of hospital departments and the

said he would not give approval
to the entrance as currently laid
Troy McDonald of Northeast
Civil Solutions, the engineers
who prepared the Dollar General’s site re-submitted the original plan, stating that it complies
with all the elements of the Site
Plan Ordinance of the town, had
already received approval once,
and he repeated the request that it
be approved.
McDonald addressed Foglio’s
entrance concerns by stating that
the current plan exceeds town’s
requirement, as laid out in the
Zoning Ordinance, that the entrance be at least 50 feet from
Route 5 on Chadbourne Ridge
Road by being more than twice
that distance at 110 feet. He also
addressed concerns about the
number of parking spaces by stating the regulation states that there
be one space for every 200 feet
of building space, which the plan
meets with 40 spaces.
Board member Andy Cote
said that he felt one of the standards in the Site Plan Ordinance
had not been addressed, and
asked that a condition be applied
to protect the abutting Roberge
property across from the entrance
to the store from the headlight
glare of exiting vehicles. This
was to bring the plan into compliance with the Site Plan Ordinance’s standard for screening
of abutters. Cote said, “I’d like
to see you put something on the
plan to screen that property from
glare, as a good neighbor, whether it be fencing or foliage.” Gage
agreed to give the Roberge family
the sum of $2,500 to allow them
to screen their property however
they wish.
Because the Board’s vote had
been taken prematurely the first
time, Clason took the time to ex-
pressly read each of the 15 standards included in the site plan
review process and Cote read
the Dollar General’s plan for addressing each of those standards.
As each standard was read and
addressed, board members signified their agreement that the application met the standard. Clason also acknowledged that when
the site plan had been submitted
to the town’s engineers, their determination had been that the site
plan minimally met the town’s
As they addressed the standard relating to hazards relating
to traffic onto adjacent roadways, which Foglio had found
insufficient to protect the traveling public, Clason referred to
the Entrance Ordinance as “that
37-year-old ordinance,” and suggested that they were bound by
the town’s Zoning Ordinance
Section 5.04 requirement that a
driveway shall not be within 50
feet of an intersection, and not by
Foglio’s determination.
Before their vote, the Board
reviewed the three conditions to
their approval. 1. That the abutters’ be provided $2,500 to install some kind of screening from
glare, 2. that the existing open
well on the property be capped
immediately and 3. that their decision would take effect pending
Maine Department of Environmental Protection’s approval of
the storm water drainage plan.
The Board voted, with Cote,
Judi Carll, Clason, Frank Allen,
and Lee Nelson voting in the affirmative and Dwayne Prescott
abstaining. Following the vote,
Board members Andy Cote and
Frank Allen resigned.
Clason acknowledged that
many opinions had been expressed about the location and
design of the store at the public
hearing, but said, “The Planning
Board can only follow existing
ordinances, and that the application complied with those that
currently exist. We badly need a
design standards, and that’s why
I’m staying,” said Clason. Board
member Carll also agreed.
Asked his reaction to the
Planning Board approval, Foglio
said, “I denied them a permit, so
it is up to Dollar General to make
the next step.” Foglio says Dollar General representatives have
misled the public in saying they
will have only one delivery a
week, that they will likely have
multiple deliveries by all sizes
of trucks every day, and most
of them will fill up the Roberge
side of Chadbourne Ridge Road
in order to turn into the entrance.
“I told them it was unsafe and
the Planning Board ignored both
the fire chief and me,” said Foglio. “Why did Dollar General
have meetings with us and then
say they are not going to change
anything? Why wouldn’t the
Planning Board look into any of
these things? The Planning Board
rubber-stamped it. It’s a sad situation that’s become about personalities, when it’s about safety,”
added Foglio.
In a later conversation, Code
Enforcement Officer Glenn Charette reiterated, “The Entrance
Ordinance does require that a
written permit be issued by the
Public Works Director. I will not
be in a position to issue a Building Permit to Dollar General until
I receive that written permit.”
Star gazing in Limerick
By Shelley Burbank
[email protected]
The Limerick Public Library
hosted an educational and fun
“Astronomy Night” on Friday,
Jan. 20 with astronomers Ron
Thompson and Joan Chamberlain. Parents and children gathered in the library meeting room
along with Cindy Smith, the library director, Lori Jo Rich, the
technology librarian, and four
members of the Board of Trustees
to learn more about astronomy.
Thompson gave detailed instruction on the use of sky maps which
allow stargazers to orient themselves once outside and looking
up at the night sky.
Some of the other topics covered were planets, constellations,
nebulae, apparent motion, galaxies, and the use of telescopes and
binoculars. “Looking through a
telescope is like looking through
a straw,” Thompson said, explaining how the tool narrows your vision. “If you don’t know what to
look at, it is difficult to find it.”
Thompson suggested that simply sitting outside in your lawn
chair and looking up is the easiest
way to see constellations. “The
only things you need to learn and
enjoy the night sky are your eyes.
They are a fabulous pair of binoculars,” he said.
However, looking through a
telescope is also fun and instructive, enabling the user to see details not visible to the naked eye.
The group of beginner astronomers were asked to let their eyes
adjust to less light by turning off
the lights in the library and flicking on flashlights covered with
red plastic so the light would not
cause interference with the stargazing. Once eyes were adjusted,
everyone trooped outside behind
the library to look up at a brilliant,
star-filled sky.
From the library’s Facebook
page: “It was a perfect night to
explore the night sky and to learn
about how to use a telescope. It
was amazing to see the craters on
the moon, the four moons of Jupiter, the red coloring of Betelgeuse
and the twinkling blue of Rigel. It
was also cool to see the ‘double
stars’ and the Lovejoy comet.”
For those who weren’t lucky
enough to attend the event, there
are many books for readers of all
ages on astronomy topics available to borrow from the library.

News from the
Waterboro Public
Trustees discuss
space needs
In a survey conducted by Waterboro Library trustees in 2014,
the 78 respondents were nearly
unanimous in their belief that the
greatest needs of the library are
more hours and more space. A
few years ago, when town hall
closed on Mondays, the library’s
hours were reduced eleven hours,
going from 35 to 24 hours and
have remained at this level since.
The staff is working to address
this need by submitting a budget
for the next fiscal year that adds
five hours to make Wednesdays
open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Building a new library, and
possibly including a community
center in conjunction with Waterboro Parks & Recreation, was also
discussed at a recent library trustee meeting. Patrons who support
a new building are being asked to
email their thoughts to the selectmen at [email protected]
gov and the town administrator
Gary Lamb at [email protected]
Staff change
Jillian Keith of North Waterboro volunteered at Waterboro Library during high school, and has
been a paid staffer for seven years.
She has just given notice after being hired for a short-term position
in Westbrook, and hopes to work
in Ocean Park next summer. She
was honored for her time of service on Wednesday at the library.
Very conveniently, her mother
Pauline Keith will take over Jill’s
hours. Pauline has volunteered at
the library and also filled in at the
desk when staffers were on sick
leave. She knows the homeschool
collection very well, is able to
work the same hours Jill did and
will fill in when needed. Staff and
trustees wish Jill well and welcome Pauline to the library.
Teen group activities
On Wednesday, Feb. 5, the
Teen Group will meet to design
the Teen Group Newsletter and
Facebook page. The Teen Group
will also be running a winter photo contest for children in grades
K-12. Kids can submit their winter photos to the library starting
Jan. 31 through Feb. 13. The contest will run from Feb. 15 through
March 31. There will be two categories: grades K-5 and grades 6
Only printed photos can be
entered. Electronic submissions
(flash drives, memory cards,
e-mails, etc.) will not be accepted. Photos can be dropped off
until Thursday, Feb. 13 at the library’s circulation desk. Entry
forms, which include a parental
permission form, will be available and every entrant under 18
must have a signed form. Photos
must be a minimum of 4 inches
by 6 inches and a maximum of
7 inches by 8 inches. All photos
must have the entrant’s full name,
grade, address, phone number and
parent’s name written on the back
of the photo.
The public will be able to vote
on their favorite photo from Feb.
16 to March 31. Ballots will be
available at the library during operating hours. The Teen Group

Ossipee Mountaineers
welcome snow
As snow fell on Tuesday,
Ossipee Mountaineers Snowmobile Club president Chrissy Locke-McGinley announced
that all gates were open, as major
snow is finally here. Groomers
would not be out until sleds break
open trails. Riders are asked to
ride right, ride safe, and stay on
marked trails. This is to protect
the privilege of riding on southern Maine trails allowed by gracious landowners who share their
property for the sport. Riders are
asked, if possible, to ride with
snips or a hand saw to clear any
fallen trees so that groomers may
pass through the trails easily after
the storms. If anyone sees areas of
concern, they are asked to email
[email protected] or [email protected]
Snowmobile club
members build bridge
Last Monday, OMSC members Leo Binnette, Shawn Mcginley and Roger Letendre beat
the storm to build a bridge on the
Ross Corner trail. It was built in
a place where there used to be a
culvert that was no longer handling the water flow. The new
bridge eliminated a potential safety hazard.

MOB starting to rule
By Michael DeAngelis
[email protected]
MOB hockey, the varsity
squad comprised of players from
Massabesic, Old Orchard Beach
and Bonny Eagle is quietly putting together a fine season.
On Monday, Jan. 26 the ice
triumvirate topped Westbrook (011-1) for their fourth win of the
season by a 3-1 count.
MOB got on the board first
on a goal from Tanner McClure,
Chandler Dunston assisting.
Westbrook tied it before the intermission, but MOB potted two
goals in the second period and got
shut down goaltending from Matt
Bridges to close out the victory.
Kyle Whitman banged home
the go-ahead goal after collecting
a pass from Travis Marsh with
nine-minutes gone in the middle
frame and Marsh closed out the
scoring just under two-minutes
later after Robbie Axelson and
McClure worked the puck smartly
up ice.
MOB currently sits in ninth
place in the standings (the top
eight teams qualify for post season
play) with five games remaining.
They tied Windham (4-62) in their previous game, held
Wednesday, Jan. 21.
