Tri-County CAP receives preservation grant for R & D building BERLIN -- Tri-County Community Action Program, Inc. (TCCAP) has been awarded a $10,000 grant by the National Trust for Historic Preservation from its Cynthia Woods Mitchell Fund for Historic Interiors. The seed grant funds will be used to hire an architect to create an interior restoration plan of the R & D Building. A preservation architect will create an interior floor plan designed to tell the story of the Brown Paper Company Research & Development Center’s early 20th century history of developing products (i.e. Crisco, Kodak film processing, etc.). Once complete, the center will be open for the public to experience and serve as an information center. “Preservation is improving the lives of everyday Americans by creating jobs and building thriving communities,” said Stephanie Meeks, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “We are pleased to offer support through the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Fund for this project, which is undertaking the critical work of saving the places that connect us to our shared history.” In 1997, a generous gift from George P. Mitchell established the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Fund for Historic Interiors in honor of his wife. The fund provides assistance in the preservation, restoration, and interpretation of historic interiors. Once a year, Mitchell Fund grants ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 are awarded to non-profit groups and public agencies. Over $109,000 were awarded in 2011. Grants must be matched at least dollar for dollar with public or private funds. see GRANT page 7

‘Road to the Sky’ still the second greatest show on Earth

FREE

BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

PINKHAM NOTCH — Colorful 19th-century circus showman P.T. Barnum was a lucky guy. Not only did he have success in the world of entertainment, he had a clear day on one of the several days when he reached the summit of Mount Washington — always a rarity, given the 6,288-foot mountain’s notorious weather, which is said to be cloud-covered 60 percent of any given year and which is “Home to the World’s Worst Weather!” Barnum was reportedly so impressed, he hailed the view as “the second greatest show on Earth!” Visitors today would have to agree. Mount Washington today remains the focal point of the region, and is home to a summit weather observatory, the Tip Top House, Mount Washington State Park and the Mount Washington Summit Museum. Other than hiking or by taking the Mount see SHOW page 8

Delegation declines to take sides in county attorney space dispute BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

LANCASTER -- The Coos County delegation Thursday night declined to take a position on the dispute between the county commissioners and the county attorney over suitable office space for the county attorney’s office. The commission reaffirmed at their July meeting that they wish to site the country attorney’s office back in the Coos County Courthouse in space formerly occupied by the Register of Probate. County Attorney Robert Mekeel provided the delegation with a document showing the probate office space is only slightly larger than his former office which Superior Court Justice Peter Bornstein ruled was inadequate. Delegation Chairman Rep. John Tholl, (R-Whitefield) said the commission requested the delegation’s support its desire to see the county attorney’s

office located in the courthouse. “I think they’re looking for our support,” said Tholl. Tholl said he prefers to see the county attorney in the courthouse. “It’s not our business,” responded Rep. Robert Theberge, (D-Berlin). Rep. Duffy Daugherty, (R-Colebrook) agreed with Theberge that the issue is within the commission’s line of authority. County Administrator Sue Collins reported that the Coos County sheriff’s office is moving into the former county attorney office on the first floor by Sept. 1. The state has agreed to install a new tile floor, an access door to the sally port office, and a customer service window. The current sheriff’s office space on the second floor will become the customer service center for the new circuit court.

Dog helps rape victim testify POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (NY Times) — Rosie, the first judicially approved courtroom dog in New York, was in the witness box here nuzzling a 15-year-old girl who was testifying that her father had raped and impregnated her. Rosie sat by the teenager’s feet. At particularly bad moments, she leaned in. When the trial ended in June with the father’s conviction, the teenager “was most grateful to Rosie above all,” said David A. Crenshaw, a psychologist who works with the teenager. “She just kept hugging Rosie.” Now an appeal planned by the defense lawyers is placing Rosie at the heart of a legal debate that will test whether there will be more Rosies in courtrooms in New York and, possibly, other states. Rosie is a golden retriever therapy dog who specializes in comforting people when they are under stress. Both prosecutors and defense lawyers have described her as adorable, though she has been known to slobber. Prosecutors here noted that she is also in the vanguard of a growing trial trend: in Arizona, Hawaii, Indiana, Idaho and some other states in the last few years, courts have allowed such trained dogs to offer children and other vulnerable witnesses nuzzling solace in front of juries.

Rioting widens in London on third night of unrest

LONDON (NY Times) — The rioting and looting that convulsed poorer parts of London over the weekend spread to to at least three other districts on Monday, including the partly gentrified eastern neighborhood of Hackney, where groups of hooded youths confronted squads of riot police officers on the main street, smashing store windows and attacking police cars and double-decker buses. Trouble also broke out in the Lewisham and Peckham areas of south London. The new outbreaks came as the police vastly increased the number of riot-control officers

deployed in London and announced they had made more than 200 arrests since Saturday. With many British leaders abroad on vacation, including Prime Minister David Cameron, Home Secretary Theresa May cut short her own holiday and flew home Monday to help manage an end to the mayhem, which recalled earlier spasms of violence rooted in deep social problems, including racial tensions between the police and London’s Afro-Caribbean population. “There is no excuse for violence, there is no excuse for looting, there is no excuse for thuggery,” May said.

BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Joining a chorus of global condemnation, three oil-rich Arab countries on Monday recalled their ambassadors to the Syrian capital Damascus in protest of President Bashar al-Assad’s brutal crackdown on demonstrations, as the Syrian military and security forces pressed ahead with their assault on the most restive locales. The decision by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Kuwait came as Mr. Assad replaced the defense minister with the army’s chief of staff, the Syrian state-run news agency said. There was no immediate explanation for the move to oust the incumbent defense minister, Lt. Gen. Ali Habib, a key figure in the leadership who had served as defense minister since June 2009. His departure would constitute one of the highest-level shakeups since the uprising began in mid-March. His replacement was General Dawoud Rajha.

Marie Bernier

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– OBITUARIES –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

BERLIN - Marie Ange ( Bourassa) Bernier, 95, of Berlin, NH, died Friday, August 5, 2011 at Coos County Nursing Home in Berlin, NH. She was born on December 13, 1915 in St. Hermenegilde de Debaford, P.Q., Canada, the daughter of Alfred and Amanda (Fortin) Bourassa. She attended schools in Canada. She was married to Pierre Joseph Bernier who predeceased her many years ago. She had been a homemaker her entire life and was a communicant of Good Shepherd Parish in Berlin. Marie Agne was an avid fisherman for most of her life. She loved hunting in her younger years, though most of the time she would draw pictures of the game instead of hunting them. She raised her son with an appreciation of music, as she played old time fiddle music with much passion and he would accompany her on the guitar. Besides her musical talent, she was a wood carver. Her carvings of horses and the old time logging loads are as lifelike as to think there are real. She will be greatly missed her remaining family, six grandchildren and eighteen great-grandchildren; her sister Rose-Aline Kelly of Berlin, NH,

and daughter-in-law, Jeannette Bernier of Berlin, NH. Besides her husband, she was predeceased by one son, Roland Bernier; e i g h t brothers, R o s a i r o, Leopold, F r e d d y, Oliva, Philibert, A r t h u r, Odias and Josephat and three Marie Bernier sisters, Rosealba Fortin, Rebecca Duchesnage and Adela LeBlance. A service will be held in the parlor of Fleury-Patry Funeral Home, 72 High Street, Berlin on Tuesday, August 9, at 1 p.m. Visiting hours will be from 12-1 p.m. prior to the service. Burial will be in the St. Kieran Cemetery in Berlin. The Fleury-Patry Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. To view an online guestbook go to fleury-patryfuneralhome.com

‘Little Shop of Horrors’, a Theatre North musical spectacular not to be missed To the editor: It is not every day that something really special comes to the North Country. This comic musical directed by Amber Dinardo and produced by impresario Jonathan Dubey is one such example. The young cast and crew, representing a new generation of Theater North, has put in a Herculean effort, taking many months for rehearsals and in the creation of some extraordinary props and effects to produce near Broadway results. As one who had the privilege to help out a bit with the scenery and props I was in a position to see from the start that this was going to be a winner. The show exudes a professional competence from the moment the curtain goes up, and we are all swept away in awe. The stars, Paul Pelletier (Seymour) and Eileen Kelley (Audrey) lead the show with their perfect voices and stage presence. They are offset by June Desmond who offers a very special and different interpretation of Mushnik, the proprietor of the flower shop, by playing a female version of the traditionally male role. Then there is a very scary dentist boyfriend of Audrey all too convincingly played by Connor Chown. The musical numbers and action are stitched together by an angelic chorus led by Kelly Stock, Sarah McGillicuddy and Tiffany Howick. And then of course there is the animated plant, Audrey II, which grows from a modest avocado like seedling to a menacing nine foot tall monster that really

swallows people. Sam Killbride provides the voice which is both commanding and sensuous, and which again very effectively departs from the normally male interpretation of the part. Her singing voice is nothing less than haunting, which after all is as it should be. We should not forget the puppeteer Mario Malina, Jr., who skillfully operates a complex array of air hoses, winches, pulleys and wheels to bring the large Audrey II to life and in perfect sink with the voice and action. Finally we should remember the bit parts add presence to any show including those aptly played by Azriel David Hernandez-Ortega (the wino) and various skid row customers and residents, played by Cassandra Mendoza and Hayley Bradford. My only fear about this show is that it is in danger of ending this coming weekend a sleeper with only very modest attendance. I urgently encourage all those who read this to scrape together some cash and go see this play at the newly renovated Gorham Town Hall either Friday, Saturday or the Sunday matinee this coming weekend. I realize the ticket price for this show is frankly more than Theater North has charged in the past, but there were huge expenses in securing the royalties and other production costs. I can honestly say it’s well worth it and you will have a very entertaining evening. Tim Sappington, Councilor NH State Council on the Arts

In The World Of Yo

Yo-yos are cyclical, they don’t just go up and down, they also come and go with time. That struck me recently when I saw one promisingly deployed on a New Hampshire sidewalk, and I hadn’t seen one for at least forty years before that. There was a nationwide resurgence when a yo-yo starred on the Smothers Brothers television show but it didn’t last, perhaps because the right wingers among us didn’t like Tom and Dick Smothers because they said too much truth about the right wingers among us. There had also been a major revival in the 1950s, and that was when I peaked. North Conway’s sidewalk spinner prompted me to go, (where else?), to the Internet, which found YoYo Nation.com and YoYoExpert.com and YoYoGuy.com and YoYoFactory.com, OneDropDesigns. com, Yo-Yo.com and Yomega.com, and then on to yo-yo blogs and review blogs of other yo-yo blogs and, for those who are still aware of their surroundings, there’s Google, where everything important about anything is revealed. Now Google has 14 pages of yo-yo truth with a 1791 picture of a grandly-dressed lady with elaborately-coiffed hair, a fan in one hand and the string of her yo-yo in the other. Google also found the first American patent for “an improved construction for the toy, commonly called a bandalore” and issued in 1866, eight other names for the same toy, and news of the first yo-yo factory in America where 600 workers were making 300,000 of them a day in 1929. So now I hasten to bring more good news to those among us who don’t remember the 1950s or the Smothers Brothers and never had either a bandalore or a yo-yo themselves. They will want to make sure to have reservations for The World Yo-Yo Contest that’s hosted by YoYoGuy. com every mid-summer in Orlando, Florida. Here they will find the winners from yo-yo contests all over the world who must compete against each other to find the very best ultimately-gifted spinner, but the smart money is already on the eleven-time double-handed world champion Shinji Saito of Japan. Needless to say, this is preceded by several layers of regional and national elimination tournaments in Mexico, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, France, Germany, Switzerland, The Czech Republic, Hungary, and Australia, as well as the annual International Yo-Yo Open at South Street Seaport in New York City from 2007 to 2009, but not in 2010, which must have been a blow to the 8,500 waiting fans and the nearly 30 million world media interests who were preparing with bated video cams. Google explained that yo-yos are much older than I could have dared imagine. There’s a picture of a Greek boy on a vase that’s dated to about 440 BC, and he has a yo-yo at full stretch. My own life in yo-yos is not quite that old. It came during a winter term at Deerfield Academy, which, as any veteran prep school dorm master will know, is a dangerous time. That yo-yo didn’t come to me directly, I liberated it from my father, who got it as a gift from the parents of a student. It wasn’t just any old plastic Duncan

yo-yo, either, it was a gold- plated yo-yo. The parents of students at a starchy oldline New England prep school wouldn’t seem to be promising candidates for a revival of yo-yo skills, but that’s only because prep school boys are as susceptible to academic waywardness as any other teenagers are and their parents sometimes come bearing gifts for the faculty, and sometimes even golden yo-yos. I always thought that there were mixed motives in this largess, but it did not distract my father and he didn’t play with yo-yos anyway, so he passed it on to me. This proved to be a good thing, perhaps even a landmark in the ancient and honorable history of yo-yos, because it wasn’t long before I made my own contribution to that history. The design of your basic yo-yo hasn’t changed since that ancient spinner in Greece. You have two flattened spheres joined by a short axle with two or three feet of string wound on the axle, the length depending on the stature and/or skills of the spinner. They’re been made of wood since time immemorial, but the Duncan toy company was always alert to the main chance and they made their yo-yos out of hard plastic, which made the interior surfaces much smoother and consequently much faster than they could ever be in even the best wooden yo-yos. The next major development followed hard on the heels of that parental largess at Deerfield Academy. The golden yo-yo was a great deal heavier than its plebian cousins that were made of wood, and this put an added strain on the string. A string malfunction in a flying yo-yo could be dangerous. Indeed, the recorded history of yo-yos suggests that primitive tribes used them as weapons for hunting small game. This would have been a good idea, because an error in aiming could be retrieved and then corrected in the next outward trajectory. This was not a factor in the backyard of a mid-20th century schoolboy in Massachusetts, but I did think about string malfunctions, and my solution should have gone into the archives, but probably didn’t. I discarded the string provided by the Duncan people and I replaced it with dental floss, and this changed the world. The dental floss gambit meant greater strength with more weight and less volume than the equipment provided by Mr. Duncan, a concentration of virtues that meant my yo-yo would fly farther and faster and with greater angular momentum than had ever been possible in all the years since their days of glory in ancient Greece. (It also raised the level of discussions in yo-yo academia by introducing that six-syllable beauty in the last sentence.) So more strength to you, summertime boy of sidewalk fame. I haven’t seen my golden Duncan in many years and I’m not even sure what happened to it. Maybe it settled to the bottom of my family’s toy chest due to the greater weight of the gold, so now all I have to do is find the toy chest and take a few warm-up tosses to refresh my once remarkable skills. Then I’ll be ready for the sidewalks of North Conway. Nicholas Howe is a writer from Jackson. E-mail him at nickhowe@ncia.net.

The end of the school year was an exciting day for two students at Ed Fenn Elementary School. The Brad Bailey Agency of State Farm Insurance in Littleton gave away bikes to students Cody Andrews (l) and Olivia Cyr (r) during a school-wide celebration. The Bike Give-Away Program was started last year by Agent Brad Bailey. State Farm offers auto, home, life insurance and financial services. Special “thanks” to Trevor Hardy, manager of Wal-Mart in Littleton, who helped make all the presentations possible.

Early childhood education scholarship deadline is August 15

BERLIN -- The Child Care Resource, Referral, Recruitment, and Training Program at White Mountains Community College would like to remind Early Childhood Studies students that the August 15, deadline for the Adult Student Aid Program is right around the corner. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation distributes more than four million dollars in student aid and loans each year. These financial awards defray academic costs and help students reach their educational goals. The Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund has designated additional financial aid to support students in northern New Hampshire to continue their studies in early childhood. The purpose is to support early childhood professionals to continue their education and remain in the region improving the lives of families and young children. The resources are targeted to residents living in Coos County, New Hampshire and bordering communities in Vermont and Maine. These funds are intended for students seeking a Certificate, Associates Degree, or Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education from White Mountains Community College, Plymouth State University, Granite State College, or Lyndon State College. There are three different programs available for which a student may qualify:

* The Adult Student Aid Program is intended for independent students, typically age 24 and older, seeking to upgrade their skills or qualify for an undergraduate degree program. The deadlines for this scholarship are May 15, August 15, and December 15. * The Statewide Student Aid Program is intended for traditional students, ages 17 to 23, who are enrolling in a four year degree program. Graduate students seeking funding may also use this application. The deadline to apply for this scholarship is April 15, 2011. * The Medallion Fund Scholarship Program is intended for students of any age who are enrolling in a vocational or technical program that does not lead to a four year baccalaureate degree or advanced degree. Students that are working toward their Early Childhood Certificate or an Associates Degree in Early Childhood may apply to this Program. This scholarship has a rolling deadline. All applications can be found on the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation website, www.NHCF.org, under the Grants& Scholarship tab.

SHOW from page one

Washington Cog Railway, one of the ways to get to the summit to enjoy that view — at least since 1861 — has been by going up the nearly eight-mile-long Mount Washington Carriage Road, now known as the Mount Washington Auto Road. The Mount Washington Auto Road held a 150th anniversary gala celebration this past weekend. History of the Road The history of Mount Washington’s road began in the wheat fields of Canada. There were huge crops to be shipped out in winter, but there was no ice-free seaport available. So, a railroad line was built from Montreal to Portland in 1851. It passed through Gorham and opened up the east side of the White Mountains to the tourist trade. In 1850, the railroad had paid for rebuilding the road from Gorham into Pinkham Notch. Further, the railroad financed the construction of the Glen Bridle Path to the summit of Mount Washington and started its own Alpine House Hotel in Gorham – one of the many fine hotelries of the Grand Age of Hotels. It was a busy time. The first Glen House, at the foot of the Road, was completed in 1852 — tyhe same year that the first Summit House was built on Mount Washington. (There have been two other Summit Houses since.) The Tip Top House, still standing, was erected in 1853, and in that year, the New Hampshire State Legislature granted Gen. David O Macomber of Middletown, Conn., the charter for the Mount Washington Road Company. The grand plan envisioned horse-

drawn omnibuses on the road, a massive hotel and observatory. Not all that came about, but work on the road began in the summer of 1854. Tremendous undertaking Building the road was an enormous task. The nearest source of supplies was eight miles away, and all transportation was by horse, oxen or on the backs of men. Dynamite was unknown. Black powder was the explosive, and blasting holes were all drilled by hand. There was no machinery to handle the countless tons of rock and gravel that had to be moved. Even in Mount Washington’s bad weather, laborers worked 10 to 12 hours a day and lived in primitive shanties or tents. Work progressed until the fall of 1856, when the halfway point was reached. Then money ran out, and the effort was halted. But, a new company, the present Mount Washington Summit Road Company, was formed in 1859. The next year, work resumed, and the first tolls were collected for passage to the Halfway House. The gala opening of the road to the summit took place on Aug. 8, 1861, with many local dignitaries arriving at the summit in a Concord Coach. But, the honor of driving the first horse-drawn vehicle to the summit went to Col. Joseph Thompson, then proprietor of the Glen House. To be sure of beating out his friendly rival, Col. John Hitchcock, landlord of the Alpine House, Thompson drove his horse and carriage to the summit three weeks before the official opening. The last few yards were still so strewn with boulders that help was

needed to keep the carriage upright, but he made it. And, he saw to it that a photographer was there. Road competition After the road was opened to the public, its business doubled every year until 1869. That year, the Cog Railway was completed, on the west side of the mountain; and many found the relatively short trip and enclosed cars preferable to an all-day journey on the road in open mountain wagons. Road management responded by building the Stage Office at the summit to lure Cog passengers down to the Glen House from which they traveled to the railroad station by sixhorse tally-ho, and took the train back to where they started in Crawford Notch. Still, for years the Cog Railway carried many more passengers than the road, and it took an unexpected new development to turn the tables: the motorcar. The automobile age The very first motorized ascent was by Freelan O. Stanley, of Stanley Steamer fame, in 1899. More steam-powered ascents came during the next three years, and then in 1902, the first two gasoline-powered cars reached the summit. Clearly, the automobile age had begun on the road, despite sometimesstrident criticism. In 1912, the first motorized stage appeared, a secondhand Thomas Flyer. Since then, except when gasoline shortages intervened, the history has been one of steady growth: 3,100 private cars in 1935, 6,600 in 1955 and 12,800 in the road’s 100th anniver-

sary year, 1961. In recent years, more than 45,000 vehicles have driven the Auto Road each year. The Auto Road’s sister establishment, Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, in winter operates SnowCoach rides to the halfway mark. Visitors in summer may take a chauffeured stage van, or drive their own vehicle to the “Top of New England” to take in the view — where they can judge whether P.T. Barnum was right about it being “the second greatest show on Earth!” The “Road to the Sky’s” year-long 150th anniversary celebration was launched on New Year’s Eve with a spectacular fireworks display at the base of the Auto Road at the road’s sister establishment, Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, home to a 45-kilometer cross-country ski and snowshoe network of trails in winter that in summer are used for mountain biking and trail running. Energetic shovelers in April got to experience some of the old-fashioned ways that the road crews used to clear the road of snow. Auto Road enthusiasts of all ages took part in the “Road to the Sky’s” “Alton Weagle Day” May 28, during which people figured out alternative ways to travel the road to reach the summit, including going by unicycle, driving backwards, going barefoot and pushing a wheelbarrow full of sugar. The summer schedule of festivities has included the return after a 10-year hiatus this past June of the “Climb to the Clouds” automobile hillclimb, during which rally car champion David Higgins of the Isle of Man set a new record of 6 minutes and 11.54 seconds, driving his 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI to the fog-shrouded top to shatter the old mark of 6:41.99 set by Canadian driver Frank Sprongl in an Audi S2 in 1998. An Old Home Day was featured July 2, featuring old-fashioned games. That event was followed by a Carriage and Horses Only Weekend, July 16 and 17. Upcoming planned see SHOW page 9

DISPUTE from page one

Collins said the register of probate has moved from the first floor to the second floor district court space. The commission wants to move the county attorney office into the probate office space. The county attorney office, including the victim witness office, is currently renting 2,000 square feet of space in the former Lancaster National Bank building. Collins reported she, Mekeel, Commissioner Burnham Judd, N.H. Bureau of Court Facilities head Steve Lorentzen, Building Manager Clark Benson, Sheriff Gerald Marcou, and Attorney Phil Waystack, representing the commission, met on July 19 to discuss space in the courthouse. At the meeting, they reviewed the last preliminary architectural drawings for converting the probate office into office space for the county attorney - a design that Mekeel rejected previously. Collins said the architect Keith Hemingway, who did the design, has since closed his office. She said Lorentzen said the state was comfortable having general contractor Daniel Hebert do any needed renovations as he has worked for the state and built the new courthouse in Berlin. Collins said a decision was made that Mekeel and Waystack would meet with an architect by mid-September to consider an office layout. Cost estimates for the needed renovations, which will be the county’s responsibility, would be prepared by mid-October. Final approval would be required by Lorentzen with a goal of having the office ready to occupy by Jan. 1, 2012. Collins said the commission is requesting the SHOW from page 8

delegation allow it to use the money in the Facility Fund - an account set up for building contingencies - to pay for architectural and renovation expenses until the funds can be appropriated in 2012 or the delegation authorizes the commission to borrow the money through a long-term note. There is $72,056 in the account. Before meeting with the architect, Collins said the commission has requested MeKeel outline the type of office configuration he wants. She noted the entire plan will depend on Mekeel’s cooperation regarding renovations. Rep. Evalyn Merrick, (D-Lancaster) asked the decision be deferred until the delegation’s October meeting since the cost estimates are not due until mid-October. Collins said the commission needs the services of an architect before then. Judd said the commission’s concern was the delegation may not meet until the end of October which would delay the process. County Treasurer Fred King said the commission is talking about a rough design which he said should not be very expensive. The delegation authorized the commission to spend up to $7,200 out of the Facility Fund for architectural services. After the meeting, MeKeel said he has a lot of problems with the proposed office space but declined to say whether he will take the issue back to court. Mekeel said operating out of the former Lancaster National Bank building has worked out fine. He said it is only two tenths of a mile from the courthouse and within walking distance. Tragedy has struck the Mount Washington Auto Road three times, according to Howie Wemyss, the road’s general manager, who underscored that the road has had a strong safety record over the past 150 years. “The first was in 1880,” says Wemyss, an avid history buff. “It was a sad story. A stage driver was thought to be drunk at the summit, so his passengers refused to get back on his stage. They walked back down the road to halfway. The stage driver was waiting for them as he taken the wagon down ahead. He convinced them he was fine, so they climbed on board. Within a mile, he lost control, and they toppled over, killing one passenger.” The second fatality involved a Jeep in 1984 which lost its brakes coming down the road. The driver believed he could continue on and stay on the road, says Wemyss, but he lost control near the bottom and his passenger was killed. The third was two years ago, when a motorcyclist lost his brakes on the way down, 2.25 miles from the base and was killed. All motorists are advised on how to safely negotiate the road by personnel before setting off. For more information, call 466-3988 or visit www.mtwashing-

Last November, Justice Bornstein ruled the county has a duty to provide Mekeel and his staff with suitable space and found the county attorney’s office inadequate. Mekeel later said a plan to move the county attorney’s office into the probate space was inadequate as well. The commission sought a declaratory judgment from the court that the probate space would be suitable but later withdrew the lawsuit.

23rd Annual Wildman Biathlon set for August 13 SHELBURNE – It’s time for runners and bicyclists to shift their training schedules into high gear! The twenty third Annual Wildman is August 13, at 8 a.m., rain or shine. More than 200 athletes from all over the United States and Canada come as individuals and teams to New Hampshire’s White Mountains each summer to experience this event, challenging their endurance amid some of the most spectacular scenery in the Northeast. The Wildman Biathlon consists of a 10-K run in the picturesque town of Shelburne, a 22.3 mile bicycle trek through Gorham towards a 3-mile hill climb up the Polecat ski trail to the finish line at the summit of Wildcat Mountain in Pinkham Notch. The race begins with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. The winners usually cross the finish line about two hours and fifteen minutes later. Though many individual competitors complete the entire race, many others choose to combine their abilities as two-person and three-person teams. The last minute entry fees for the 2011 Wildman Biathlon are $60.00 for an individual, $120.00 for a twoperson team, and $180.00 for a threeperson team. The entry fee includes a limited edition Wildman T-shirt, a ride down from the summit on the Wildcat Gondola, a support person Gondola ticket, and one meal ticket for the “après-race” meal. Additional meal tickets and Gondola tickets are

available for purchase if needed. Categories are available for all ages and team configurations. Overall and category winners receive commemorative awards, and numerous other prizes are awarded through random drawings. The Wildman Biathlon is a fundraising event for the Coos County RSVP, a Tri-County Community Action Program, Inc sponsored program. RSVP matches individuals age 55 and older with volunteer opportunities at non-profit and public agencies in their communities. About 400 volunteers gave more than 55,000 hours of service at 65 sites throughout Coos County. Through a variety of service roles these volunteers are helping to meet community needs. Major sponsors who make the Wildman possible include Berlin City Auto Group, Davis & Towle Group, Inc., Donald M. Roy, CFP of New England Wealth Advisors, Enterprise, Great Glen Trails, Munce’s Superior, Inc., New England Employees Benefit Company Inc, North Country Internet Access (NCIA), Northeast Delta Dental, Northway Bank, Road I.D., Steve, Cindy and Nick Griffin, Tender Corps, The Royalty Inn, Timberland Campground, Varsity Beverage/Pepsi, WPKQ, Woodlands Credit Union and Wildcat Mountain.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Children want to be grownups, and grownups want to return to a life of few responsibilities and limited liability. Make the novel choice -- enjoy your age. You could start a trend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll plan your workout well, though unpredictable events will challenge that plan. Your strength is your astounding adaptability. You could even be promoted for this talent in the weeks to come. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just because someone is a supporter of yours doesn’t mean that an exchange will be easy. Dealing with good friends could cause you much more stress than it’s worth now. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is little to be gained from fame. Pursue usefulness instead. That is what will make you happy and wealthy. Capricorn and Virgo people will be helpful business partners. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Get on top of the wave, and you’ll glide like the freest of beings. Get underneath it, and you’ll be pummeled and dragged down. So make a strong effort to leap up and take the ride that’s offered. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 9). You have serious projects to complete this year, so you plan well, guard your time and keep everything on course. October brings a victory. Your personal life sparkles with opportunity and surprises. You’ll journey with a kindred spirit in December. There will be many amusements. You’ll close a deal in May. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 25, 2, 24 and 35.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your big idea is becoming a full-blown ambition. Stay theoretical. It’s not time to act yet. Seek patient, understanding and flexible teammates to help you work out the details. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Needing everything to be smooth is a detriment to success. The better you can tolerate small, bothersome details, the farther you will go in business and pleasure. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may find that you are easily distracted by things that don’t really matter. Take it as a sign to change tracks. Go for a walk, call a friend, or do something else on that lengthy to-do list of yours. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your will is not the same as what the others want from you, though a certain loved one is so slick that you may not notice this right away. Do not make any decision when you are feeling overloaded or pressured. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Though you try not to expect too much from loved ones, you also know that patterns are likely to repeat. The one who has impressed you before will soon impress you again. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are willing to take a risk when it comes to love, but not when it comes to commerce. Keep your money where it is until you completely and thoroughly understand and trust the investment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Love erases discomfort. This afternoon, knowing that you are accepted and adored will come as a psychic relief. And tonight, you will in turn give similar emotional support to someone else.

by Abigail Van Buren

SON LEFT TO RAISE HIMSELF WANTS DISTANCE FROM HIS PARENTS

DEAR ABBY: I’m an only child by default. My parents have been married 30 years and had two children. When I was 9 and my sister was 6, we were in a car accident with my mother that resulted in my sister’s death. Her death changed my life in ways I can never explain. My father began abusing drugs and beating me. My mother started stealing and was always unemployed. She became severely depressed and also abused prescription drugs. I was left to raise myself, and now, as an adult, I don’t want a relationship with either of them. How can I get my mother to accept that despite her wishes, I do not want to live my life watching her waste hers? It leaves me feeling depressed, angry and hopeless. I have been diagnosed as bipolar. Almost all my life I have known only death, drugs, abuse and pain. I just want peace from these people. Please help. -- FRUSTRATED SON IN GEORGIA DEAR FRUSTRATED SON: You have my deepest sympathy for the tragedy that destroyed your family. Had your parents received the professional help they needed at the time of the accident, much of it might have been prevented. Tell your parents that unless they seek help NOW for their problems, they will have lost not one, but two, children. However, if they choose to continue as they have been -which is likely -- then you must go on with your life. The answer to a toxic situation such as what you have experienced is to divorce yourself. Because you can’t fix them, you must save yourself. You have been damaged enough. DEAR ABBY: My daughter, “Kate,” is 27 and has a 3-yearold son. She and the father are not married. He is self-cen-

tered, controlling and keeps her stranded. She has no car and no money. They currently live with his family -- a far from ideal situation. I am struggling because I’m unable to help her financially, and she feels lost and alone. My husband (her stepfather) won’t allow them to live with us, which I understand. We’re scrimping to get by. I have located several online sites for single moms regarding assistance, but I feel it is up to Kate to pursue them. What else can I offer her regarding steering her in the right direction? If she could contact others in her situation, perhaps they might point her in directions I cannot. Your advice would be welcomed. -- GRANDMA IN PRESCOTT, ARIZ. DEAR GRANDMA: Because of your financial situation there is a limit to what you can do. Give your daughter the websites and explain that she may find support and suggestions there from other single mothers -- the rest is up to her. But please, realize that until your daughter is willing to take charge of her life, nothing will change. Continue to be caring and supportive, and let your daughter know you love her. DEAR ABBY: When someone elopes, is a bridal shower after the fact appropriate? There will be a reception later this summer where a wedding gift seems expected. I think having a bridal shower is not proper etiquette. What do you say? -ASKANCE IN VERMONT DEAR ASKANCE: The intent of a wedding shower is to extend good wishes to the bride -- and with increasing frequency, the groom. Having one after a hastily planned wedding or an elopement is not a breach of etiquette. However, if you disapprove, no law says you must attend.

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

Bryan Mason assumed command on lap 21. Great racing in the middle of the pack, allowed the #31 of Ming to break free and begin his chase of Mason. Marshall had a five car length distance to make-up as he reached the top three with 10 laps remaining. Marshall got past Ming with just seven laps to go as the #32 racer got to Mason’s back bumper on the white flag lap. A loose handling car off the corner on the back stretch allowed Marshall to reach the outside door of Mason’s #10. Marshall drove his car in a ton into the final turn, reaching the third groove. Mason’s car again would not get the needed bite off the corner and Marshall squeezed perfectly between the front stretch wall and Mason to take the electrifying victory. “I’ve got to thank the car owner and the crew for giving me this chance,” said an exhausted and smiling Marshall in victory lane. “I wasn’t sure it would stick way up in the top groove, but it did and I am very happy.“ Bryan Mason, Ming, Corey Mason, and Brett Gervais rounded out the top five. Qualifying wins went to Cody Hodge and Marshall. The Caron Building Center and the Sign Depot Daredevils ran their features together. Anthony Lacoss in his #1 race car carried the checkers for the veterans and the #82 of Colby Bourgioes captured the rookie division checkers. Shawn Whitcomb continued her winning ways with a victory in the Griffin family Angel division. Tracie Nelson took the runner-up spot, with Milan’s Tina Leveille taking third. Vanessa Brown in her #41 race car, carried the winner’s flag in the heat race. The Twisted Tea Dwarf cars were well represented. Twelve cars in the pits and ready to set sail on the high banked quarter mile. The #27 of Aric Cole got his first feature win of the division, beating the hard charging Dave Gyger to the finish line. Veteran driver, Sparky Lapan, raced home third. The steady Kevin Hockman drove his #33 machine to fourth place and the #21 of Jeremy Labrecque had a solid night taking home a top five. The Budweiser Super Stocks saw Trevor Roy get to the front early. However, the rookie could not hold off defending champion Matt Carbone and young gun Nick Gilcris. Carbone rolled to the victory with

The action was all over the track that eventually saw the #11 of Nick Pilotte take the lead from Nick Miller with just three laps to go. Miller finished a great night in the runner-up spot. Dana Graham, Chris Ouellette, and Chris Caron all finished in the top five. Heat wins went to Miller and Cole Kilby. The Town & Country Motor Inn saw just eight cars take the green. However the top three cars put on a spectacular display of on the edge of your seat racing. Veteran Dean Switser captured his first feature of 2011.
