    saw much action That is they didn t see the action they were intended for Roberta Sheaf remembers living on the island with just her mother father and sister in the 1910s and early 20s And Hal Cushing lived every little boys dream his family owns House Island and he spent summers as a boy exploring the fort and the shoreline Still it s a lonely island Never heavily populated only a handful of people have lived there for the last century Not quite deserted but not quite a home House Island continues to evoke a sense of mystery There s just something about a sparsely populated thirty acre island in the middle of a busy harbor that inspires curiosity Listen to PGM 3 House Island Shirley Wilder worked on Liberty Ships in South Portland as a welder PGM 4 What Happened to Ferry Village Walking along Front Street in South Portland it s hard to remember that you re on the waterfront The large green oil tanks dwarf everything else along the street The small houses that line the other side look like toys in comparison Ferry Village was once a small fishing village but was changed almost overnight During WWII two large shipyards were hastily constructed to build Liberty Ships vessels that relayed supplies to Europe during the War The US government bought the small houses and shacks along the waterfront displacing fishing and shipbuilding families that had been there for generations But the shipyards created jobs thousands of badly needed jobs and the neighborhood was flooded with workers day and night The war ended in 1945 and the workers left The land was soon developed for the growing oil cargo business and now the area is home to acres of tank farms Was this modern progress making life better for all or a behemoth that took over a neighborhood It depends on who you ask Shirley Wilder was one of the first women to be hired at the shipyards during WWII In her mind the industry cleaned up a tired old village But to Jim Darling and his niece Carol Campbell the shipyards and then the oil tanks decimated a community Now Ferry Village is quiet again Remnants of the decaying shipyards can be found at the end of the street And the oil tanks that were constructed after the War quietly loom over the village separating people from their past Listen to PGM 4 What Happened to Ferry Village With Portland s Back Cove in the background historian Bill Barry describes a landscape altered by human hands PGM 5 Back Cove To many Portlanders Back Cove is a beautiful recreation area an oasis of nature in a land sprouting parking lots and strip malls But was the Cove always like it is now ringed by roads and homes Historian William David Barry led us on a trip through time to explore what Back Cove was like before the walking trail and I 295 The ocean is such a huge force of nature that it seems impossible that we could alter its path But Portland is a study in landfill Early European settlers found a narrow peninsula of land surrounded by streams marshes and tidal inlets Prior to 19th century the Back Cove waterway was so large that it made the peninsula almost an island As Portland grew into an international port land was added around the cove to accommodate human needs Transportation necessitated rail lines and roads Factories required more waterfront property So clam flats and streams were buried under landfill to create new land In a way we literally pushed our connection to the sea further out into the channel And now Back Cove has no commercial purpose All those alterations have taken their toll The channel is no longer deep enough for boats and it s nothing but mud flats at low tide Still the tree line cove is a beautiful haven of nature in the middle of the city Almost by accident Back Cove has become the centerpiece in Portland s park system Listen to PGM 5 Back Cove Listen to PGM 5 Back Cove from local motives Friends of Casco Bay volunteer Gary glick test harbor water PGM 6 The Bay Keepers There s no denying that Casco Bay is a beautiful harbor We re lucky to live near such a dazzling part of the ocean But how clean is this harbor Would you swim in Casco Bay Would you eat fish caught in the harbor Heavy industry once ringed the harbor shipbuilding yards canneries lead paint makers a soap factory a kerosene distributor coal pockets and a hat factory lined the harbor How much pollution are we willing to accommodate to host the oil tankers cargo ships pleasure boats and cruise ships that enter Casco Bay each year Since the Clean Water Acts of the 1970 s the water quality in Casco Bay has steadily been improving And de industrialization the very thing that has taken away so many jobs has been very good for the harbor Still it requires constant vigilance to keep the bay clean For example cruise ships a growing part of the tourist industry here are exempt from the Clean Water Acts This means that they can discharge waste within the harbor Improving the waters of Casco Bay is a large job and thereÌs a strong cooperative effort to monitor the health of the harbor Private citizens test the waters city and state employees enforce the clean water legislation and organizations like the Friends of Casco Bay initiate programs to reduce pollution That the water quality of the harbor has improved is obvious but there is a lot of traffic in this harbor Where do we strike a balance that allows for both a working waterfront and a clean harbor Listen to PGM 6 The Bay Keepers Aboard the smack boat Lady Gladys seven year old Finn Badgewickk scans the horizon PGM 7 From Trap to Plate

  • David Pence Reviews Neu! Nei! 2 & Neu! 75 by Neu - WMPG
    with a two note bass line and various phased and otherwise distorted guitars Unlike Kraftwerk s music Neu s work swings and generates heat as it rolls obsessively forward It suggests the open road at a cruising speed ju st shy of danger Each of the three albums contains transcendent material However if you can t buy all three skip the third Neu 75 on which the band sounds a bit self conscious and grandiose as they use keyboards to inflate their essential sound If you can afford o nly one it s a toss up The debut is a true album a complete work featuring motorik a pair of slow moody songs one stately Weisensee and one both mournful and insane Lieber Honig as well as a handful of compositions built around industrial n oise water soundscapes tape tricks and lock groove rhythms On the other hand Neu 2 is not only brilliant but perverse Side one plays as you might expect two short atmospheric pieces sandwiched between an 11 minute motorik workout Für Immur Forever and a fast fierce cut featuring Dinger s snarled sub verb al vocal track The second side was assembled after Neu had completed the aforementioned songs and a single Super b w Neuschnee and after their label had refused to advance any more money to complete the album Dinger and Rother decided to deliver the album to the label with no additional songs Instead they replayed the two tracks of the single at 16 RPM 78 RPM and at normal speed They added sound f x and tossed in a couple of noise art pieces also one a drone and the other a woozy soundscape featuring the band talking over a distant playback of Hallogallo Though on one level the group intended side
