Environmental clean up of former Notre Dame high school complete BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – The effort to convert the former Notre Dame high school into senior housing reached a major milestone this month. The city has completed the remediation of the building and soon plans to turn it over to TriCounty Community Action Program. CAP is working to secure the financing to allow it to turn the historic building into senior housing. “The city has gone as far as it can in moving the building forward,” said Housing Coordinator Andre Caron. “We’ve taken the environmental risk out of that building.” Two representatives from the N.H. Department of Environmental Services conducted a final inspection of the building on Jan. 18. Keith DuBois and Ralph Wickson, of DES’s hazardous waste remediation bureau, said they were impressed at the job the city has done. “We’re very pleased and encouraged to see the progress that’s been made,” said DuBois. “The cleanliness of the building is really impressive.” Wickson said once the city’s

environmental consultant, Nobis Engineering Inc., submits its final clean-up report, DES will issue a ‘Certificate of No Further Action’ and a ‘Ready for Reuse’ letter for the city. He said the two documents close the regulatory file for the site and certify that all the necessary remedial actions have been completed and the site is ready for reuse. Once the city receives the DES certificate and letter, the property will be turned over to CAP. CAP Housing and Economic Development Director Max Makaitis said the plan is turn the building into either senior housing or senior assisted housing. He said both options are still being explored. In either case, he said they are looking at 33 1-bedroom apartments for low and moderate-income seniors. Makaitis said there is a demonstrated need for senior housing as the baby boomer generation is aging. He said there currently are waiting lists for the senior housing projects in the city.

Woman arrested for Budget committee members attempt DWI with child in the car to defund Gorham town manager post GORHAM -- Police are crediting an alert bystander for helping to get a drunk driver off the road this weekend. The caller reported a possible drunk driver on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. He told police he believed a woman who had been drinking had just gotten behind the wheel with a young child in the vehicle and was traveling on Main Street in Gorham. According to police, the caller stayed on the phone with the dispatcher and followed the vehicle south on Main Street while police were dispatched. He reported that the vehicle was operating erratically and

almost drove off the roadway as it entered the town of Shelburne. The caller then stopped the vehicle and waited until police arrived, moments later. Sharon Wood, 35 of West Lebanon, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, aggravated driving while intoxicated, driving while intoxicated second offense, as well as two felonies, falsifying physical evidence and possession of controlled/ narcotic drugs. Wood’s juvenile son was in the vehicle. Police also noted officers found she concealed drugs from the officers at the

GORHAM — In an attempt to send a message to Town Manager Robin Frost, a number of budget committee members attempted to defund the executive office portion of the Gorham town budget last week. The measure failed to pass on a vote that split the committee down the middle, 5-5. Committee member Robert Balon proposed zeroing out all lines of the executive office section of the proposed appropriations for 2012, “based on the fact that the town manager has made her position clear on the committee and I feel we should make our position clear and leave it up to the voters.” Balon stipulated that his motion excluded the $300 stipend for the budget clerk. Balon’s reference to the town manager’s

position on the committee was directed at Frost’s comment from a previous meeting that she would have signed a petition to place an article on the warrant that seeks to abolish the budget committee if she had been able. Other town employees and citizens have signed such a petition and the matter will be on the ballot at the March town meeting. The executive office lines include the town manager’s salary and benefits, the stipends for the selectmen and stipends for the town moderator, along with professional dues, training and travel expenses for the selectmen and town manager. The lines proposed to be removed totaled $75,533, according to town budget documents dated Jan. 24. Balon was unable to get a majority of his colleagues to agree to the symbolic vote, with

Search for aliens needs funding HAT CREEK, Calif. (N.Y. Times) — E.T. might be phoning, but do we care enough to take the call? Operating on money and equipment scrounged from the public and from Silicon Valley millionaires, and on the stubborn strength of their own dreams, a band of astronomers recently restarted one of the iconic quests of modern science, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence — SETI, for short — which had been interrupted last year by a lack of financing. Early in December, a brace of 42 radio telescopes, known as the Allen Telescope Array, nestled here in the shadow of Lassen Peak, came to life and resumed hopping from star to star in the constellation Cygnus, listening for radio broadcasts from alien civilizations. The lines are now open, but with lingering financial problems, how long they will remain that way is anybody’s guess. Astronomers now know that the galaxy is teeming with at least as many planets — the presumed sites of life — as stars. Advanced life and technology might be rare in the cosmos, said Geoffrey W. Marcy, the Watson and Marilyn Alberts in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence professor at the University of California, Berkeley, “but surely they are out there, because the number of Earthlike planets in the Milky Way galaxy is simply too great.”

Everyone’s quick to blame the alien.” —Aeschylus

U.S. Embassy in Cairo shields three Americans ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

CAIRO (NY Times) — The United States Embassy in Cairo is giving shelter to three American citizens to protect them from potential arrest by the Egyptian authorities as part of a politically charged investigation into the activities of four American-backed nongovernmental organizations operating here, colleagues said on Monday. The decision to give the individuals shelter is a new low in the relations between Cairo and Washington, which recently

threatened to stop its $1.3 billion in annual aid to the Egyptian military if it fails to take steps toward a democratic opening, including respecting such nongovernmental groups. Word of the decision came as Egypt’s ruling military council began taking steps to address its fraying relations with Washington by sending a delegation of officers to the United States for meetings this week with their military counterparts, legisla-

tors and other officials. The delegation was in Tampa on Monday, visiting the Central Command headquarters. Officials at the American Embassy declined to comment on the decision to shelter the Americans, first reported Monday in The Washington Post. The reports followed the disclosure last week that the Egyptian government had barred at least a half dozen American employees of the groups from leaving the country.

Tensions on the rise, but no Fighting escalates in Syria evictions at Occupy D.C. WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Defiant Occupy protestors here pledged to maintain their vigil on Monday despite an order from the National Park Service that campers must remove their gear or depart from two federal parks. As the agency’s noon deadline neared, chanting protestors unfurled an enormous blue tarp emblazoned with “Tent of Dreams” over the center of McPherson Square, one of the two parks. The protestors then dragged the tarp over the statue of James B. McPherson, the Civil War

general for whom the park is named, and the statue’s head and shoulders poked through the top of the tarp. “What they’re doing with this enforcement is a joke,” said Christopher Seerden, 30, of Santa Cruz, Calif. “People need to have a place to stay.” Despite the deadline, there was no immediate effort by the police to clamp down on the campers, and only a few patrolmen watched from the outskirts of the park, where the enforcement deadline had been posted in recent days.

BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Syria rebel fighters continued clashing with government forces in neighborhoods on the doorstep of Damascus on Monday in an escalation of the spreading war there, while a new diplomatic effort by Russia to broker mediation talks between the antagonists appeared to go nowhere and pressure for Security Council action intensified. Despite deployments by Syrian forces into the eastern suburbs of Damascus on Sunday, where soldiers, tanks and armed vehicles were sent to crush pockets of armed rebellion, there was no clear sign that the heavily outgunned rebels had been vanquished. Amateur video posted on the Internet bolstered other credible reports of new fighting in Homs, the combustible central Syrian city that has been the venue of repeated battles between rebel fighters and forces loyal to President Bashar alAssad. Syria’s official news agency, SANA, said nothing about the Homs fighting but said a gas pipeline in the area was blown up by what it called an unidentified terrorist group. There were no reliable estimates of the number of people killed or wounded in the latest fighting.

the committee evenly split on the matter. Voting in favor of removing the funding were Balon, Terry Roderick, John Losier, Lisa Cardell, and Jay Holmes. Jeff Schall, Terry Oliver, Bruce Lary, Bob Demers, and Steve Roy voted against the measure, leaving the group deadlocked and the motion defeated. Over the weekend, Balon questioned the validity of the vote, stating that Lary, who is the committee chair, had voted causing a tie and should not have voted except in the case of a tie. A check of the frequently asked questions on the official Robert’s Rules of Order website (www.robertsrules.com), clarified that chairmen of small committees are afforded the same rights as the rest of the members. “So, in meetings of a small board (where there are not more than about a dozen board members present), and in meetings of a committee, the presiding officer may exercise these rights and privileges as fully as any other member.” The committee agreed to reconsider the executive office section of the proposed 2012 budget at their Jan. 26 session, after also agreeing to send a letter to the editor explaining their position on the recent coverage of the budget process and also issues involving Frost. At a prior meeting, she had misspoken on the overall budgetary reduction reached by the selectmen and later corrected that information after the error was brought to the committee’s attention by one of the members. Thursday night’s session also included reconsideration of the $13,260 for the building inspector line of the budget and a first discussion and recommendation on the warrant article to deposit $42,000 for the Fire Truck Capital Reserve fund. The committee voted against recommending the article 5-4 with Holmes abstaining. Town Finance Administrator Denise Vallee said that she had inadvertently left the money for that article off the budget documents when she updated them, though it was on the separate list of proposed funding for capital improvement. The omission, however, had meant that the committee had not yet reviewed the article for recommendation. She added that the $42,000 would bring the balance of the fund used to replace fire trucks up to $62,000. The budget committee questioned the need for the money at this time, and focused on the fact that the town’s oldest engine, Engine 2, which is housed in the Cascade station and next slated for replacement is seldom called into action. Fire department members on hand noted that the number of runs Engine 2 has made in the last two years include a time frame when the mill was not operating at the level they hope it will now. They contended that the call volume was higher when the mill was producing a lot of paper and could go back up as operations increase. The committee was also informed that the mill owns the Cascade Station and the land it sits on, with the town leasing the property at a rate of $5 per year. The issue of the town’s building inspector budget brought discus-

sion after the committee voted to reconsider the line 5-4 after Holmes recused himself at the suggestion of Lary due to a potential conflict of interest. The committee had previously defunded the position and Oliver, who is the selectmen’s representative on the committee, moved that the line be reinstated in full. Participating in the discussion, Holmes said he voted to defund it so that it could become self-funded “pay as you go.” Frost said it could be self-funded and the town is looking at fees, but there has to be an appropriation and a revenue, not just a revenue. Holmes said he felt if the money came in under the “general fund” it could go out the same way. Roy noted that he’d received a booklet full of permits from the town manager, which by his calculations equated to about 40 actual inspections in a year. He estimated that meant the building inspector, also the town’s fire chief Rick Eichler, earned his stipend at a rate of about $100 an hour. Frost said that his figure didn’t take into account follow up on signs, fencing, new construction, certificates of assembly and failed septic complaints. She added that John Scarinza, who is filling the post currently makes $25 per hour. Frost agreed with the committee that the permit structure and fees needed to be looked at, and also pointed out that the matter had been brought up at a recent meeting of the planning board. The budget committee members could not be swayed, pointing out the length of time they had proposed self-funding this post with little result. “I believe in code enforcement, but I don’t believe in code enforcement as we have it,” Losier said lamenting that the idea of making the position user funded had been kicked around for five years. Roy agreed stating that he’s been pushing the issue for three years and nothing has changed. “Maybe if we take it out they’ll do it,” he said. A vote to reinstate the $13,260 failed 3-6 with Holmes abstaining. A second motion, from Roy to appropriate around half of that money, $7,000, also failed 3-6-1. Speaking during the public comment portion, Planning Board chairman Mike Waddell said the committee had voted down something the selectmen have to fund, since the town is statutorily obligated to enforce codes as a result of having adopted a zoning ordinance. The budget committee stressed that their votes are not finalized in the proposed 2012 budget until after hearing from the voters at the public hearing on Feb. 8. Once the final votes are taken at the close of that session, the bottom line budget as recommended will go before the town meeting in March. Votes of the budget committee to remove funding are binding, if adopted by the voters, though the lines the funding is removed from are advisory only, as the selectmen have authority over where the money is spent. The town meeting has the power to reinstate money cut by the budget committee only up to 10 percent of the total proposed budget and recommended warrant articles.

What was the city council thinking? To the editor: As usual, what was the council thinking! Penalizing the voters and taxpayers (who have been recycling since day one) by charging them per bag of trash and make them buy bags (probably over priced) from the city is just ridiculous! That’s not going to fix jack. People to lazy or to ignorant to recycle now are surely not going to do it by making everyone pay per bag of trash. There will be a lot of trash being thrown in the woods or along roadsides, etc. Why not have a vote on this issue? Oh that’s right, In Berlin in our votes don’t count. If we vote no and

the council doesn’t agree they find a way to get what they what anyway. It’s happened before (when the first prison was an issue and the voters did their civic duty). Our taxes and cost of living keeps rising, yet our rights are being taken away one by one. America should change its motto to ‘land of the fee”!

Tension On The Tarmac

WHAT is it with Barack Obama’s penchant for getting in tangles with blond politicians on airport tarmacs? Usually, tarmacs are for joyous welcomes or teary goodbyes. But No Drama Obama saves his rare tempests for the runway. In the last primary season, the tension in the relationship between Hillary Clinton, who had expected to glide to the nomination, and the upstart younger senator from Illinois came to a head one day in December 2007 as both were preparing to board their planes in Washington to go to an Iowa debate. Hillary had sent word that she wanted to talk to Obama. Standing in front of her plane, she apologized to him for the comments of her co-chairman in New Hampshire, Billy Shaheen, who had warned that Republicans would pounce on Obama’s confessions of cocaine and marijuana use. But given the opening, Obama dived in, telling Clinton that she should intervene to stop the pattern of insinuations and attacks by her supporters, including one by a volunteer in Iowa who had forwarded an e-mail claiming Obama was a Muslim. That’s when Hillary got upset and began gesticulating, giving Obama a piece of her mind about what she saw as unfair attacks on his side. Obama gently put his hand on her arm “to chill her out,” as an aide later told me. But Hillary did not like it, feeling she was being held in place and patronized, even “manhandled,” as her aide put it to a reporter. On Wednesday, Obama had another bristly tarmac moment with Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona, who met Air Force One when the president landed in Phoenix. The toxic dominatrix of illegal immigration, the woman who turned every Latino in her state into a suspect, was flustered and gesticulating at the president as he put his hand on her arm to chill her out. Brewer complained afterward that she had felt “unnerved” and “a little bit threatened” by Obama and that he had walked away while she was in midsentence. Brewer told Monica Crowley, subbing for Sean Hannity on Fox News, that she had given the president a letter inviting him to join her at the border to discuss enforcement. She said he shot back that her account of a 2010 Oval Office meeting on the topic, published in her book, “Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border,” was distorted. “He was patronizing,” Brewer wrote about the president in her book, adding: “He’s treating me like the cop he had over for a beer after

he bad-mouthed the Cambridge police.” (The president’s recent performances are boosting sales of Brewer’s book and Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together.”) With typical Fox balance, Crowley told Governor Brewer that she admired her for “getting in the president’s grill,” adding, “You go, girl.” The president can be thin-skinned, but the governor can be fat-headed. The Constitution is more threatened by Brewer’s racial profiling than the governor was by the president’s fact-checking. Brewer’s grasp of facts is tenuous, after all: she told The Arizona Republic in 2010 that her father died fighting the Nazis in Germany, when he died a decade after the end of the war, which he spent working at an ammunition factory in Nevada. Both of Obama’s tarmac tiffs worked in his favor. After his encounter with Hillary, he told advisers that it was the first time he knew he could beat her because he saw fear in her eyes. After his brouhaha with Brewer, dubbed “the dust-up in the desert,” he became a hero to the Hispanics he had gone West to court. They loved seeing their Cruella de Vil get dressed down. Everything is breaking Barry’s way, as Mitt and Newt rip into each other in vicious ads and debates like alligators going after house pets. Romney was tutored in Florida by Brett O’Donnell, a new debate coach. Too bad he can’t find a conviction coach. O’Donnell manned up Mittens and taught him how to pummel Newt in “moments of strength,” as the Republican strategist Alex Castellanos calls them. The funny thing is that the reason Gingrich soared in South Carolina, before faltering here, was that Republicans are so afraid of debates with the president that they are obsessed with sending forth their toughest adversary for him. They seem to have forgotten that, while Obama has had dazzling moments of strength in executing Osama and in swashbuckling derring-do against Somali pirates — if not in dealing with Congress — he was no Abe Lincoln in debates. He did not like debating, and Michelle urged him to be more visceral. He often faded onstage because he stubbornly refused to accept debates as alpha combat rather than beta seminars. He disdained anything he saw as superficial politics, from sound bites to macho put-downs. If Obama continues to resist the gladiatorial subtext, while Romney embraces it, the debates could be more evenly matched than the Republicans dare to dream.

To the editor: It is time for the budget committee to tell their side of the story. As you have read in previous articles there was a mistake on the bottom line figure in the town budget which was stated in the paper on Jan. 29. The town manager, Robin Frost, before checking her numbers gave a figure and a percentage rate that was incorrect. The figure was not caught by the town manager nor the selectmen but by a budget committee member. Some of the town workers and their spouses signed a petition

to abolish the budget committee and the town manager stated she would have signed it also if she could. But, if this were to happen the mistake in the figures Robin Frost made may not be caught in time and the townspeople would be misinformed. The town manager makes an apology in the paper for her mistakes, but lets them print figures of work in progress recommendations list that can change on Feb 8, at the public hearing, these figures are not yet agreed upon and may see HEARD page 5

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

BERLIN -- Leopold A. Kelly, 81, a longtime resident of Jericho Road died Sunday, January 29, 2012 at Coos County Nursing Home following a period of declining health. Born on August 12, 1930 in Berlin, NH, he was the son of William P. and Maria A. (Baron) Kelly. He was raised and educated in Berlin.

Let’s save money where we can, so if times get worse we won’t have to keep raising the tax rate and drive people out. So please we are asking you the taxpayers of Gorham to come to the public hearing on Feb. 8, at the town hall 6:30 p.m. and listen to the proposed budget, ask questions, be informed where your tax money is going. Let your voice be heard. Steve Roy Budget committee co-chair Gorham Budget Committee

not be actual. The selectmen have said, “we have provided a pretty lean budget”. This was at the 497,589.00 figure when this was said, the committee is hoping they feel different now that the figure is at $286,889.00 and may change. We, the budget committee, would like to remind the taxpayers that we give recommendations on the budget. The committee consists of 10 Gorham taxpayers. They are business owners, homemakers, business managers and retirees who volunteer their time and deal with a budget on a daily basis. We are not here to hurt any depart-

Correction

In last Friday's paper, a page three story about the Berlin Board of Education's discussion on textbook purchases contained comments erroneously attributed to board member Ken Proulx. Proulx asked for clarification

on the NH Department of Education's position on ordering textbooks, and the explanation that followed, which was detailed in the story, came from Superintendent Corrinne Cascadden not Proulx. We apologize for the error.

scene leading to the felony charges. She was released on $2,500 PR bail and is scheduled to appear in Berlin Circuit Court on February 28. Lieutenant Jennifer Lemoine, who handles prosecution for the Gorham Police Department said this is the department’s sixth suspected drug-related DWI offense since December 2011, something the department has rarely seen in the past. “The department has definitely seen a rise in drug-related criminal activity in the past year and DWI is no exception,” said Lemoine. She credits the arrest of these suspects to the officers’ training and diligence. The department has two officers with specialized training and certifications in detection of motorists who may be operating a motor vehicle while impaired by controlled drugs. Lemoine also cautioned the public about attempting to stop vehicles on their own. “You never know who you may be dealing with, what their history is or what they may be thinking at the time,” she said. Also arrested over the weekend was Alan Alger, 47 of Berlin. He was arrested in Shelburne after the Gorham Police received a report of a domestic assault in progress. Alger is charged with simple assault and obstructing the report of a crime. He was held on $200 cash bail and transported to the Coos County House of Corrections and will appear in court for a bail hearing on Monday, January 30. Alicia Kenison, 22 of Gorham, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated and driving while intoxicated, second offense. She was released on $500 PR bail and is scheduled to appear in court on March 27.

CLEAN UP from page one

conversion is $7.5 million and Makaitis said CAP is working to secure the needed financing. The agency is seeking a $4.8 million package of tax credits and forgiveness loans through N.H. Housing Finance Authority that it views as the lynchpin of the financing. The project narrowly missed being selected for the financing last year and CAP was encouraged to reapply for the loan again this fall. Makaitis said NHHFA staff members have been up several times to discuss the project and are impressed with what is proposed. “They’re very eager to help us get this project done,” he said. CAP is pursuing a variety of other funding options, including a Community Development Block Grant, a Federal Home Loan Bank forgiveness loan, and Historic Resources tax credits to complete the financing. “There are a lot of pieces and they all have to come together,” said Makaitis. The project has come a long way since a group of Notre Dame alumni, lead by Lorraine Leclerc, pushed the city to redevelop the building back in 2003. A section of the building had been heavily damaged by fire and was sitting vacant. Unpaid taxes had resulted in the building falling into city ownership. The volunteer group cleaned up the grounds around the school and boarded the windows. An engineer, who was an alumni of the school, did a structural analysis that found the main building was sound but advised that the old gymnasium was beyond saving. The city obtained a brownfield assistance grant that identified asbestos and lead in the building and traces of the gas additive MTBE in groundwater

samples. In 2008, the city received a $200,000 federal brownfield grant to clean up the property. MARCOR Environmental out of Wilmington, Mass., was hired to clean up the asbestos inside the building and the debris from the fire. The city covered the cost of disposing of the rubble and asbestos and the cost of Norbis Engineering’s management services. The city last year succeeded in getting a $400,000 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grant to complete the project. Enpro Environmental Services Company was hired to remove the soils around the building while MARCOR remediated the lead and PCBs contained in the paint used in the building. MARCOR also removed all the mold that had grown in the building. The city last fall hired Fortier and Associates of Berlin to install vents and screening in the windows to allow air circulation. All together, Caron said $720,000 has been spent to remediate the hazardous materials in the building and make it safe for public use. “We’re very happy with the end result,” he said. Through its handling of the Notre Dame project, Caron said the city has proven it can successfully manage such a remediation effort and has established a track record with federal and state agencies that will help with future projects. In reviewing grant applications, he said agencies, like the federal Environmental Protection Agency, look at an applicant’s ability to execute such projects. Berlin, Caron said, has shown “we deliver what we promise to deliver”.

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Have no fear of failure. If you can’t make something work now it just means that you were meant for a different kind of challenge. Besides, you do a stellar impression of a glorious phoenix rising up from the ashes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You feel rich within. Your self-confidence is deep, and you know you have much to give. You’re almost ready to merge your assets and share your confidences with another person. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even when you feel you have enough to survive and be happy, you will keep working. You hate to feel idle, and it brings you personal satisfaction to excel beyond what is necessary. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The contrast between your laid-back style and the preferences of a tidy, logical and overly detailed person may be a source of friction. If you can find a compromise, what you accomplish together will be absolutely brilliant. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will feel like you’ve been left in the dark on a certain topic and the unknown is daunting. But you’re too courageous to let that stop you. Shine your mental flashlight, start poking around and you’ll find your way. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 31). It will be as though you have the golden touch. It’s not important to you to win all of the time, but you’ll revel in the victory that comes in the next six weeks. You bring harmony to your family and other groups. There will be a happy change in April. Your work will be prominently featured in June. Cancer and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 25, 1, 12 and 15.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). In order to know what’s best for you, you have to know yourself. You’ll learn the most about yourself through your conversations with the deeper thinkers in your midst. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Intimate encounters, life passages and joint enterprises unfold in the weeks to come. As you cherry pick your activities today, you’ll appreciate that much is available to you now that wasn’t before. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Go into long-term arrangements with great caution, especially when finances are on the line. You would be wise to look to the person behind the venture rather than at the venture itself. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Negotiations and compromises are the outward manifestations of inner security. You know how safe another person really feels by the way he or she sorts out the details of a deal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may feel a strong pull toward positions of leadership and power. You like to be in control and may even feel that you need to be in charge or everything will not get done the detailed way you prefer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will put aside your need to have everything unfold as it’s “supposed to,” and you’ll embrace the spirit of drama that colors this day. It will feel right to let your emotions lead you into a highly creative state of mind. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Get the contact info of anyone you find interesting. You’re likely to come into contact with a wide array of characters, most of whom you may not meet again unless you make the effort to do so.

For Rent by Abigail Van Buren

EMAILED PHOTO OF AILING MOM IS REASON TO RESTRICT VISITORS

DEAR ABBY: Recently my 80-year-old mother was admitted to the hospital, gravely ill. She had been undergoing chemotherapy and caught double pneumonia. My 36-year-old niece went to visit Mama, took pictures of her lying in her hospital bed and emailed the photos to everyone. It was shocking and upsetting seeing my mother this way. Many of the people who received the photos had not been able to visit her. Abby, what’s your opinion on this, and how should it have been handled? -- SINCERELY UPSET IN FLORIDA DEAR SINCERELY UPSET: I don’t blame you for being upset. What your niece did was a gross invasion of privacy. Is this how your mother would have wanted people to see her? If the answer is no, your niece owes your mother an apology. If your mother is still hospitalized, talk to the nurse in charge of the unit she’s in and give her a list of visitors who should have access to her. Explain why you want visitation restricted, and in the future your mother’s privacy will be assured. DEAR ABBY: My sister’s husband died suddenly three years ago. “Pamela” now says she’s in love with a 60-yearold man I’ll call “Mickey,” whose company is doing construction work on her home. She has put on a new roof, siding and added a deck, and the jobs are not ending. Next on the schedule is a shed and a new coat of paint for the inside of the house. Friends and family are concerned that Pamela is scheduling more jobs as a way to see Mickey. When I pointed out that he hasn’t even invited her out for coffee, she claimed they

have a “relationship” because he hugged her, kissed her on the cheek and told her, “You’re my girlfriend.” Pamela has invited Mickey to family dinners and events, but he turns her down because “he’s visiting relatives out of town.” He has never invited her to go anywhere. My sister should be ready to date now, but no one lives up to this man. None of us have met him, and we’re worried she is just imagining there’s a relationship. What can we do before Pamela goes broke or crashes emotionally? -- SOMETHING’S MISSING IN NEW JERSEY DEAR SOMETHING’S MISSING: Do you know the name of Mickey’s company? Start checking him out. Does he have a contractor’s license? A Facebook page? Does anybody in the lumber or paint business know him? Something does seem fishy. Mickey may be married and your sister may be grasping at straws. But when all is said and done, it is her money. DEAR ABBY: I am a 12-year-old girl who needs your advice. My friend and I went shopping a while back and she lent me money to buy a few things. However, later that day she lost the bag that had my stuff in it at the mall. One day she brought up that I have not paid her back, but I said I don’t think I should have to pay her back since she lost the stuff she bought for me. Who do you think is right? -- NEEDS ADVICE IN OAKLAND, CALIF. DEAR NEEDS ADVICE: You are. She’s out the money; you’re out the “goods.” You’re even. However, from now on when you buy something, take responsibility for it and keep it in your possession. That way, if something is lost, you will have no one to blame but yourself.

Martin and Dorval keep Concord’s Annie Mullen Berlin ahead of Exeter, 4-3 ices Lady Mountaineers, 6-3 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

EXETER--Senior Ethan Dorval collected a pair of goals and senior goal tender Steve Martin had 36 saves, helping Berlin to defeat Exeter 4-3, in a boys’ Division I hockey game in Exeter Saturday. The Mountaineers got off to a good start on a great individual effort by junior winger Brandon Poulin with 5:08 to play in the first period. Poulin fired his shot on Blue Hawk goal keeper Steve Lambert. Lambert made the block and the rebound came right back on Poulin’s stick. The burly forward lit the lamp to put Berlin on top 1-0. The goal was Poulin’s second of the year. Berlin went up 2-0 at 13:12 of the opening period. This time it was Dorval going high over Exeter’s Lambert. Zach Blanchette picked up the assist on Dorval’s seventh goal of the year. Exeter ruined the Mounties’ good start by scoring a goal with just 1.6 seconds left in the first period. Berlin

was in the penalty box on a tripping call. Blue Hawk Anthony Caiani got the goal from line mates Cannon Ronan and Collen McArthur making 2-1 at the end of one period. In the second period, Berlin got their two goal lead back at 11:37, on a perfectly executed two on one break. Senior Jeremy Rivard took a feed from sophomore Connor Jewett and whistled his shot into the Exeter goal for his seventh of the year. It looked as if the Mounties were going to be in the driver’s seat with only 1:47 to play in the second period. Dorval netted his second of the game and eighth of the year, using a Blue Hawk defender as a screen to put the visiting Mounties on top 4-1. That all changed in the third period. Goals by Exeter’s Spencer Young at 4: 43 from Nate Kingsley and then at 5:19 by Ty Meuquita and Brendan Mantell made it a 4-3 contest with more than half a period to play.

BERLIN--Concord high school’s Annie Mullen scored four goals and assisted on the other two goals scored by the Crimson Tide, in a 6-3 girls’ hockey victory in Berlin recently. The win elevated Concord to 6-2 on the season while the Lady Mountaineers fell for the seventh straight game to be at 2-7. Concord came storming out, scoring three goals just :19, 1:54, and at 2:28 into the game. Jess Carroll got the first from Mullen and her sister Erin Mullen. Annie scored the next two from Carroll and her sister and then again from her sister and Sammi Nadeau for the 3-0 lead. That had the Berlin coaching staff insert senior goal tender Gray in between the Mountaineer pipes. There was no further scoring in the first period. Berlin got themselves on the scoreboard just :19 into the second period. Morgan Ouellet scored from team mates Kyana Lefebvre and Emily Landry to make it 3-1. The goal was Ouellet’s fourth on the season. At 6:57 of the second period, Berlin reduced their deficit to one goal on a Carly Perreault blast to make it 3-2 Concord. Ouellet and Landry picked up the helping markers on Perrault’s

second goal of the winter. Just 30 seconds later, Concord tried to take the steam out of the Mountaineers. Annie Mullen completed her hat trick and more importantly put the visitors back on top by two goals. The Crimson Tide put to rest early in the third period any hopes for a Berlin come-back by scoring just 48 seconds in. Annie Mullens’ fourth goal of the game was unassisted. Erin Mullen from sister Annie were the two culprits for Concord at the 8:48 mark of the third period, to put Concord on top 6-2. The final goal came at 14:18 of the third period by the home town Mounties. It was a power play goal by Melanie Morin that made the final score 6-3. It was Morin’s fourth goal of the year. For the game, Concord goal tender, Ashley Goodbut had 19 blocks for the Tide. In relief, Gray had 26 saves for Berlin. The Lady Mountaineers will travel to Dover for their next game. Berlin will battle St Thomas/Dover in an afternoon contest. BHS 0 2 1--3 CHS 3 1 2--6 Scoring: CHS- A Mullen 4, Carroll, E Mullen, BHS- Ouellet, Perreault, M Morin.
