Firefighters ask council not to cut force BY BARBARA TETREAULT

Main Street, Berlin, NH

BERLIN, N.H.

BERLIN – The fire department budget drew most of the attention at Wednesday night’s hearing on the city council’s proposed fiscal 2012 budget. A contingent of fire fighters turned out to plead for a lager appropriation to avoid cutting two positions on the force in what was otherwise a sparsely attended public hearing. Mayor Paul Grenier opened the hear-

ing by outlining the challenges facing the council as it puts together a fiscal 2012 budget. Stressing the $31,319,727 general fund budget presented was not final, Grenier noted it would increase the tax rate by 68 cents. It would also eliminate four and a half positions. At the same time, he said the amount of unpaid property taxes now totals over $1.3 million – a sign, he said, that the community is struggling. He said the council is trying to find the

balance between maintaining services and a quality education system with the community’s ability to pay. “That’s the dilemma this council is facing,” he said. The proposed budget is $535,943 less than the budget presented by City Manager Patrick MacQueen and $203,848 less than the present budget. Grenier said the council will have a better idea of the final numbers in three

ous grants and loans. In 2012, the budget calls for the department to use $2.2 million in so-called “forced account income”. That forced account work will continue for the next three years. Viens said the most significant financial issue facing the department continues to be its high debt load which next fiscal year will range around $7.2 million. But, he said, that load is decreasing and should be manageable when the bonds taken out in the early nineties are paid off by 2015. The start-up of the federal prison should

help the revenue picture as well the startup of the proposed Laidlaw/Berlin Station biomass plant. Viens listed five major projects for the year. He said the department will continue to replace old water mains, complete the Godfrey Dam rebuild, and upgrade the Brown Farm well. It is also upgrading the office and garage and making green improvements that will allow the department to reduce its electric bill to zero. “We have a busy year ahead of us,” Viens said.

Water Works budget calls for no water rate increase BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – The Berlin Water Works Commission outlined its proposed 2012 budget Wednesday night and promised no increase in water rates for the 14th straight year. The commission is proposing a budget of $4.41 million for fiscal 2012. Water Superintendent Roland Viens said the department will continue to balance its budget by using its own workers to do system improvement work funded by vari-

Selectmen to consider abatement request for historical society BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM— The Gorham Board of Selectmen agreed to accept an abatement request from the Historical Society even though it was submitted after the deadline to file. The board Monday night voted 2-1 to accept the abatement request after it was filed more than a month after the March 1 deadline. Selectman David Graham didn’t feel he had enough information to vote in favor the accepting the request while selectmen Terry Oliver and Paul Robitaille wanted to consider it because of

Workplace may be cause of rise in obesity (NY Times) — Looking beyond poor eating habits and a couch-potato lifestyle, a group of researchers has found a new culprit in the obesity epidemic: the American workplace. A sweeping review of shifts in the labor force since 1960 suggests that a sizable portion of the national weight gain can be explained by declining physical activity during the workday. Jobs requiring moderate physical activity, which accounted for 50 percent of the labor market in 1960, have plummeted to just 20 percent. The remaining 80 percent of jobs, the researchers report, are sedentary or require only light activity. The shift translates to an average decline of 120 to 140 calories a day in physical activity, closely matching the nation’s steady weight gain over the past five decades, according to the report, published Wednesday in the journal PLoS One. Today, an estimated one in three Americans are obese. Researchers caution that workplace physical activity most likely accounts for only one piece of the obesity puzzle, and that diet, lifestyle and genetics all play important roles.

Belgrade on Thursday, giving few details. Televised images showed Mr. Mladic from behind, shuffling unsteadily into a Belgrade courtroom. Serbian news reports said that Mr. Mladic, now 68, had been living under the name of Milorad Komadic and that he was captured in the small farming town of Lazarevo in Vojvodina, the Serbian prov-

ince north of Belgrade, after authorities received a tip that the man known as Komadic resembled Mr. Mladic and had identification documents with that name. Witnesses said he was not wearing a beard or any disguise, but had aged considerably, appearing older and thinner than the stout, selfassured professional soldier last seen in public in 2006.

Missouri officials release list of missing JOPLIN, Mo. (NY Times) — The number of people missing after a tornado devastated this city has been reduced to 232 from about 1,500, officials said Thursday, as firefighters continued to work their way through mounds of broken concrete and twisted metal that were once homes and shops but that may now be concealing dozens of bodies, four days after the tornado touched down here. The list of the missing — which was released Thursday — was narrowed down and complied, officials said, by using records from temporary

shelters, hospital logs and cellphone use. State and local authorities, however, were not able to say precisely how many of the 232 people listed as missing were also among the 125 people who had been declared dead. Officials would only say that not all of the dead had been listed among the 232 missing. The tally of the missing has been anxiously awaited by family members for days, but in some ways the announcement confused, rather than clarified, what families have said has been a painful process.

(NY Times) — Ruling that Republicans in the State Senate had violated the state’s open meetings law, a judge in Wisconsin dealt a blow to them and to Gov. Scott Walker on Thursday by granting a permanent injunction striking down a new law curbing collective bargaining rights for many state and local employees. Judge Maryann Sumi of Dane County Circuit Court said the Senate vote on March 9, coming after 13 Democratic state senators had fled the state, failed to comply with an open meetings law requiring at least two hours notice to the public. The Wisconsin Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in the case on June 6 , and Republican lawmakers are hoping that the court overturns Judge Sumi’s ruling and reinstates the law. The State Senate could choose simply to pass the bill again while assuring proper notice. But some political experts say there might be some obstacles to reenacting the vote because some Democrats could conceivably flee the state again, and some Republican Senators are frightened about pending recall elections.

Too Sad And Sentimental

The cacophony of the fierce battle had drowned out the cries of pain and the calls for help from the wounded, and the rasps of the dying. As would be so often true, the sound and fury of the day’s fighting had not produced a clear winner or loser, and both sides had returned, subdued now, to the relative quiet and safety of their respective camps. As the evening wore on and thoughts of lost friends and comrades filled the hearts of the living, a war-weary, but clear, baritone voice could be hear coming from the Union camp. The song was a quiet song, a thoughtful and sobering song, a longing song, rich with emotion. The song carried through the night air to the Confederate camp, not far away. Quiet settled over the camp, as lonely ears listened. Yes, they understood. The song’s message of longing for home and family and for the war to be over was universal. A young lad in grey began to pick up the tune and the words, and his youthful tenor voice joined the Union camp’s baritone. Soon, it was a song sung by both sides of the brutal and bloody battle for America’s soul. Little did the singers know that just a few month’s earlier the song had been rejected for publication because it was felt to be “too sad and sentimental.” The story goes that on the night before he was to be inducted into the Union army, in 1863, Merrimack, New Hampshire’s Walter Kittredge (1834-1905), a regionally-known balladeer of his day, had poured out his own feelings of leaving home and family in a song that, it is said, never had a note of it changed. Kittredge tried to sell his song for $15.00 to the Oliver Ditson Company of Boston, a prominent music published of the day. “Too sad and sentimental,” he was told. “There’s nothing to it.” But Kittredge’s friend, Asa Hutchinson, a member of the Hutchinson Family Singers, a

highly popular and beloved singing group of the era, knew otherwise. Approached again, this time by a nationally known and popular musician, the Ditson Company agreed to publish “Tenting on the Old Camp Ground,” the song’s true title, although it is often called “Tenting Tonight on the Old Camp Ground.” The song was destined to become one of America’s – and the world’s – most beloved songs. Sung for the first time at an outdoor concert in Lynn, Massachusetts, by the famed Hutchinson Family Singers, with whom Walter Kittredge frequently performed, the song became an instant hit. Within six months, the song had sold over 10,000 copies, and within two years, both Kittredge and Asa Hutchinson had realized a thousand dollars a piece in royalties. The song that was “too sad and sentimental” did not die at war’s end. Walter Kittredge’s beloved tune was performed in Philadelphia, during the country’s great Centennial Celebration, in 1876, and, fittingly so, held an honored place at the Great Soldiers’ Reunion, in Washington, D. C., in 1892. The Merrimack balladeer wrote over 500 songs in his lifetime, many of them dealing with America’s great struggle to find its own soul. There were titles such as “Scatter the Flowers over the Blue and Gray” and “Sing the Old War Songs Again.” But the song that was composed in one night in a personally infl uenced burst of inspiration would be Kittredge’s lasting legacy. “Tenting on the Old Camp Ground,” the song that was at first thought to be “too sad and sentimental,” struck – and still strikes to this day – a responsive chord in the hearts of people everywhere. Somewhere, Walter Kittredge must surely be smiling. (Ithaca Bound is the pen name of Dick Conway. His e-mail address is: ithacabound35@ gmail.com.)

call our community home. Lately, we have been let down by these industries. We all remember the promises that the federal prison project made. They were going to hire local New Hampshire people to build their facility. I was lucky enough to get in on a relatively small portion of that project, but what I saw there shocked me. With so many of my friends, neighbors and fellow ironworkers out of work, I could not believe the amount of out of state workers brought in to build that prison. I saw folks from Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, North Carolina, Virginia, Arizona, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Georgia, South Carolina, New Brunswick and probably many others. I am sick of being walked on by these out of state contractors. If New Hampshire is where they want

RMT’s claim that the wind turbine project requires specialty workers is a cop out. We have the skilled workforce to erect those turbines. In fact we have over 250 ironworkers who have completed three year apprenticeships that cover every specialized aspect of wind turbine erection. The Lempster wind farm and the turbine at the Grand Mountain View Resort were both erected without incident by local workers. If RMT doesn’t think we’re good enough to work for them, maybe we should ask if they are good enough to be here. Let’s not allow what happened at the prison to ever happen again. RMT and Brookfield Renewable Power, this isn’t how we treat our neighbors in New Hampshire. William McCullough Stark

ABATEMENT from page one

the society’s value to the community. The Gorham Historical Society is seeking an abatement for its 2010 taxes on the museum’s $78,700 assessment. The society normally receives an exemption from its property taxes as a non-profit but forgot to file the paperwork for its exemption and was issued a bill. Reuben Rajala, the organization’s president, said, in the written request to the board, that due to limited volunteer time, the exemption paperwork wasn’t filed on time. He added he likewise forgot to mail the abatement request before the deadline. Rajala wrote that he accepts full responsibility for not resolving these issues in a timely fashion. “While the Historical Society has the resources to pay such a property tax bill, it would severely deplete our reserve funds, which are very limited,” wrote Rajala in his request. Robitaille said he’s not fond of this situation but felt the board should agree to consider the abatement. Graham too wasn’t fond of the situation either, but felt he wanted to see more of the organization’s financial paperwork and get a better grasp on the situation before considering the

abatement. Graham said it’s not that he doesn’t think the society contributes a lot to the community, but he feels there are some unanswered questions. “I can understand your feelings,” said Robitaille. “I think this was done a little shoddy.” However, Robitaille said the society is a major attraction to the town and brings a lot of people into the community. Robitaille said he doesn’t like doing this, but he’s willing to consider the request. Resident Mike Waddell said the society only has a handful of really active volunteers that handle the administrative jobs. He added not considering the request would burden the group with a cost it couldn’t afford with its minimal budget. “I don’t think it serves the public’s good to deny the request,” said Waddell. The organization’s funds mostly come from its members and the annual appropriation from the town so it’s all taxpayers’ money. He added the not granting the abatement would take away what little money the organization has to operate.

FIREFIGHTERS from page one

weeks as it gets a sense of expenditure and revenue surpluses in the present budget that it can use to reduce taxes in the 2012 budget. Grenier said he personally hopes to be able to avoid lay-offs and avoid an increase in the tax rate. Others on the council are pushing for a tax decrease. Fire Chief Randall Trull lead off the charge for an increase in the fire department budget. He argued that reducing the size of the fire force with the aging infrastructure that exists in the city is dangerous for citizens and firefighters. He said reducing the force will impact how quickly firefighters can response to a fire. Trull said the city has a good fire department and said it has been making progressive steps. It has implemented fees for various inspections and services. Firefighter Pat Tremblay asked the council to reconsider for his safety. Tremblay pointed out he is also a property owner in the city. The two firefighters whose jobs would be eliminated under the budget, Noah Hallgren and Justin Jacques,

both spoke. Jacques warned cutting staff could result in an increase in injuries as fire fighters try to do too much by themselves. “We work hard at what we do,” he said. Jacques told the council he has lived in Berlin 27 years and loves the community where he volunteers as a coach. But if the budget goes through, he said he will be laid off. Public Works Director Michael Perreault reminded the public this is the fourth budget in a row the size of his department has been cut. The 2012 budget calls for a reduction of two people in Public Works. Perreault said maintaining the same level of services will be challenging if his budget is cut again this year. “We’re going to do the best we can,” he said. The school department is slated to receive a total operating budget of $17,062,903, $473,831 more than its current budget but $470,000 less than requested. Superintendent Corrine Cascadden said the district avoided laying off teachers who agreed to go without a pay raise for the next two years and without step or longevity increases next year and made other conces-

sions. Rodney Bengston said the level of delinquent taxes should tell the council that people are having a hard time. He said other communities like Littleton are laying off people. He suggested the city look at reducing pay increases and benefits such as health insurance. He said he can’t afford health insurance for himself and his family but his taxes help pay for insurance for city employees. Walter Hansen of Sweden Street encouraged the council to view Berlin as a family and set priorities. He said the country is “in the toilet” and said the city is going to have to learn to make due with less. Joseph LaPuma said he didn’t mind paying a little more for fire protection as long as the budget is fair. Andy Langlois of Church Street said he has lived in southern New England and in Vermont and seen what people pay for taxes there. “There’s really not a lot to whine and cry about here,” he said. The council is slated to hold a special council meeting on June 13 to pass its final budget.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

DILBERT

by Scott Adams

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have the key to making money. Instead of merely learning what to do or going through the motions that someone has laid out for you, you take the exact actions that will produce value for others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be people around you who know more and have more success in a certain area. You have more knowledge and expertise in an entirely different realm. So think of yourself as an equal. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your personal power increases at your will. “Keep your chin up” is not merely a metaphor; it’s a physical suggestion that will change the way people treat you today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your first impulse is usually a generous one, but be careful today not to over-give. You could create an unhelpful dependency. Opt to teach others what you know instead of doing it for them. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A relationship may feel stagnant, but that’s about to change as you ask yourself a magic question: “How can I truly make this person’s life better?” Your musings will produce solutions. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 27). You are so attractive, in part because you seize opportunities to improve yourself and radiate happiness. Your community involvement increases in the months to come. You have something to sell, and you’ll bring in more than anticipated for it. A spiritual calling will lead to adventure. August and September are romantic. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 10, 2, 38 and 4.

Cul de Sac

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have strong feelings for someone, though you don’t have them all the time -- only when you let yourself. Today, when you are near this person, everything seems luminous. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want to be appreciated for the full range of who you are. But there’s so much to you that some people won’t be able to understand. So you’ll cultivate friendships with many different people. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It seems that everyone around you wants to be bigger than life and famous for it. You don’t. You are truly wise, realizing that the ordinary life-sized life is the perfect size to live in an extraordinarily beautiful way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are big events on the horizon. The special dates are to be celebrated in particular ways, and it will all require a great deal of organization on your behalf. Make preparations. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You arrived at this place because you dreamed about it. Some of the dreams were what you wanted, and some were what you didn’t want. The two kinds have collided to create this current reality. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t have to sample everything to know what you like and don’t like. You’re intuitive, and you get a sense about things before you dive in completely. So don’t let anyone pressure you. Believe in your subconscious leanings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll meet someone who is aligned with your values and principles -- a new and true friend. Not every true friend is this much like you. There are people you love with whom you have far less in common.

FAMILY’S SOUTHERN DRAWLS ARE NOT MUSIC TO CALIFORNIA EARS

DEAR ABBY: While I am not from the South, many of my relatives are. They all were raised in medium to large cities, not rural areas. I’m embarrassed when they use crude terms and call their parents “Ma” and “Pa” in public. These are well-educated people, but they come across sounding like hicks and buffoons. They think it’s funny, but no one outside our family does. If someone laughs with them, it’s because of embarrassment or discomfort. No one else is willing to speak up and when I try to, they make me feel like I’m a spoiled brat. If these people were from rural areas or uneducated/uncultured I’d understand, but they’re not. The sound of their “fake hickness” is like fingernails on a chalkboard! Please help. -- KEEPING IT REAL IN LAGUNA BEACH, CALIF. DEAR KEEPING IT REAL: I’m sorry that visits from your relatives are so painful for you. However, I see nothing wrong with calling one’s parents “Ma” and “Pa” if those are the names they have been called all their lives. Believe me, I have heard parents called much worse. The best advice I can offer would be for you to grow a thicker skin and, if that doesn’t work, spend less time with your relatives. With your attitude, you’ll be doing them a favor. DEAR ABBY: Should I be a bridesmaid in my best friend “Carla’s” ex-husband’s wedding? I’m still friends with him, which is fine with Carla. I have also become quite close to his fiancee, “Jenny.” We have a lot in common and have been hanging out for some time. Jenny has asked me to be in her wedding. I haven’t talked to Carla yet to see how she’d feel about it. I don’t feel like she’ll be completely honest with me. Would I be stabbing her in the back if I’m in the wedding? I need advice, and quick -- the wedding is soon! -- FRIENDS WITH EVERYBODY DEAR F.W.E.: Because you’re concerned about Carla’s re-

action to your being a part of her ex-husband’s wedding, you should address your question to her. My gut reaction is that if it feels to you like it could be stabbing her in the back, it might be perceived that way. DEAR ABBY: What is the protocol for office romances? I have seen so many flings and love affairs go on. Sometimes it’s fine, but other times it has caused a big distraction. A supervisor dating a subordinate is probably frowned upon, but what if they’re in different departments? Should an office romance be kept secret, or out in the open so rumors won’t spread? I have never been a part of this, but I have seen plenty. What’s right and wrong? -- CURIOUS IN THE CUBICLE DEAR CURIOUS: There is no “protocol.” Most companies discourage office romances because they’re a distraction and make workers less efficient. If they happen between a supervisor and a subordinate and it doesn’t work out, it could lead to accusations of sexual harassment and an expensive lawsuit. So while the temptation may be there, what’s “right” is to avoid them and what’s “wrong” is to indulge in one because it’s risky business. DEAR ABBY: When closing window blinds for the night, is it normal or proper to close them with the blades or slats in the upward or downward position? My wife and I disagree on this. I maintain they should be closed in the upward position. What do you or the experts say? -- IN THE DARK IN TEXAS DEAR IN THE DARK: I have never encountered this question, so my staff and I experimented with the mini-blinds in our office, which has many windows. Tilting the slats up blocked more light than when we tilted them down. However, this is not a question of what is “normal” or “proper.” It’s a matter of what works best for you.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860

It is the second straight year that coach Patty Hood has guided the Lady Mountaineers to the finals. The Berlin girls will face top seeded Bow at Plymouth State University. In singles, Berlin’s #1 seed Moriah Arsenault beat Isabel Eyman 8-6, second seed Al Aldrich shutout Becca Palmer 8-0, third seeded Mountie Felicia Arsenault earned her win over Patriot Libby Gaitskill 8-3, #4 ranked player Kathryn Record lost to Cher Christnacht 4-8, freshman Miriam Arsenault lost to

Profile’s Rachel Johnson 1-8, and Berlin’s sixth seed Emily Ploudre defeated Emma Stone 8-4. That gave the Lady Mountaineers a 4-2 lead heading into the doubles action. Berlin needed just one win to move on to the finals for the second consecutive year. In doubles, Berlin was able to advance by their top duo of Moriah Arsenault and Al Aldrich, beating Profile’s Isabel Eyman and Becca Palmer 8-2. In the other two doubles matches Mounties Felicia Arsenault and Miriam Arsenault lost to Cher Christnacht and Rachel Johnson 4-8, and third seeded Kathryn Record and Emily Ploudre fell to Emma Stone and Meg Dowling 6-8, making the final score 5-4 in favor of Berlin. “Another exciting day for the girls’ tennis team,” said head coach Hood. “The girls played very well against a tough Profile team. Having the opportunity to play in the finals a second year in a row speaks very highly of these girls.”

Wildcat Mountain begins summer operations PINKHAM NOTCH – Wildcat Mountain opens for summer & fall operations beginning Saturday, May 28, at 10 a.m. offering two major state attractions for the long Memorial Day Weekend including New Hampshire’s only ZipRider zip-line cable ride and the highest scenic gondola in the state, the Wildcat Express. As a yearround destination located 100 percent within the White Mountain National Forest, Wildcat Mountain provides both exhilarating and one-of-a-kind opportunities to enjoy views and scenery that have consistently been voted number one in the East. Wildcat Mountain’s ZipRider combines a safe, one-of-a-kind, flying experience with beautiful scenery. With four cable lines that affectively allow for maximum rider capacity, the ZipRider is the only attraction of its kind in New Hampshire and is different than the canopy zip-line tours familiar to most. For just the cost of a $20 ticket and meeting minimum and maximum weight/height requirements, riders will descend just under a half-mile over trails, tree-tops, and the Peabody River at heights of up to 70 feet and speeds that can reach 45 miles per hour before the ZipRider’s automatic braking and a spring stopping system receive the rider comfortably at the landing platform located a short distance from the Main Base Lodge.

Also unique to Wildcat Mountain, and the only one of its kind in North America, the Wildcat Express has once again transformed from New Hampshire’s fastest and most powerful summit quad chairlift during the winter and spring skiing and riding season to the state’s highest summer and fall scenic gondola. Comfortable, enclosed 4-person scenic gondola cabins transport guests to the 4,000 foot-plus summit of Wildcat Mountain offering ideal views of Mt. Washington and the Presidential Range. The scenic gondola is the best way for the entire family, including wellbehaved canine members on a leash, to enjoy incredible views and scenery. Gondolas run continuously, so you don’t wait in any lines. The ZipRider and scenic gondola will be open as weather permits for weekends only beginning Saturday, May 28, and then will begin to operate daily Saturday, June 11, through the spectacular fall foliage in mid-October. Wildcat Mountain also offers hiking, fishing, liftserviced nine-hole alpine disc golf course, and weekly guided tours and outdoor interpretive programs with the Tin Mountain Conservation Center and Appalachian Mountain Club. Food, beer, and wine is offered in the base lodge with fresh “Lunch & Ride” packages available for individuals, families, or groups. All rates and information can be found online at skiwildcat.com or by calling 1-888-SKI-WILD.
