Two charged with theft at local liquor stores

LANCASTER - Two women, employed at N.H. Liquor Stores in Berlin and Gorham, have been charged with stealing money from the stores. Meagan Audette, 23, of 102 Cedar Pond Road in Milan, and Ciara Reid, 23, of 851 Fourth St., Berlin were both indicted on single counts of theft by unauthorized taking. The charges are class A felonies. Reid is alleged to have taken over $10,000 between March 26 and Nov. 15, 2010 from the state liquor store in Berlin. The indictment charges she retained over $10,000 in cash payments from customers. Audette is alleged to have taken over $3,000 between Jan. 4 and Feb. 28 of this year from the state liquor store in Gorham. The indictment charges she retained

money paid by customers, diverted money from transactions which she canceled, and removed money from petty cash. The two women were among 21 people indicted on 49 counts by the Coos grand jury when it met Sept. 30. Randy A. Corriveau, 43, of 538 Burgess St., Berlin was charged with three counts of second degree assault. He is alleged to have struck John Morrow in the head with a pipe on Aug. 2, resulting in a left side parietal laceration that required staples to close. Robert Goulet, 54, of 463 Madison Ave. Berlin, was indicted on two counts of theft by deception. The indictments allege Goulet obtained $4,684 from Robert Langevin by creating the false impression

it would be used to purchase supplies to replace shingles on Langevin’s roof. One indictment alleges the theft occurred on April 1, 2010, the other lists the date as May 18, 2010. Robert Howard, Jr., 25, of Pinkham B Road, Randolph, Justin Martineau, 26, of 53 Church St., Berlin, and Daniel Ouellette, 26, of 43 Seventh St., Berlin were all indicted for burglary, alleging they entered the home of Antonios Koxarakis at 72 Owens Road in Milan between Feb. 21, 2011 and March 14, 2011. Jessica Leeman, 30, of 615 Burgess St., Berlin was charged as an accomplice to burglary, alleging she provided Howard, Martineau, and Ouellette with transportasee THEFT page 10

Solar handcarved the eagle head and personalized the cane for Effingham’s Stephen Tessier, a former sergeant in the US Air Force, who served during the Cold War according to Solar. He plans to deliver the cane to Tessier this week. Solar is a member of the Great North Woods Carvers, a wood carving club in Berlin that meets at E&S Rentals on Wednesdays at 5 p.m. The cane was crafted as part of the club’s participation in the Eagle Cane Project, a movement that began in Oklahoma but has gained traction nationwide.

BERLIN — Kyle Newton nearly failed senior English, not because he couldn’t write, but because he could. Now more than a year later, the 2010 BHS grad has published his first novel. Newton said his writing got in the way of assigned writing during his senior year, as he admittedly found it difficult to switch gears between the story he was crafting and the assignments he had decidedly less interest in. His 12th grade English grade makes little difference now, though, as a triumphant Newton shows off his shiny new book — Allegiance of a Soldier — the first in the Betrayer Series. The fully committed 19 year old author— he turns 20 in a couple of weeks — has two more stories planned for the series and then possibly a spin off series in mind. Book two has already been written Newton said.

Newton’s book is a quasi-medieval fantasy based in a make-believe world dreamed up by the young writer. No small feat, Newton not only mapped the world, but also crafted 200 years of history to flesh out his characters and storyline. The 279 page story features a soldier in the fictional country of Rairal, recently returned from war

American economists share Nobel Prize

(NY Times) — The Nobel in economic science was awarded Monday to Thomas J. Sargent at New York University and Christopher A. Sims at Princeton University for their research on the cause and effect of government policies on the broader economy, a concern of countries struggling to address the aftermath of the recent financial crisis. Back in the 1970s, Dr. Sargent and Dr. Sims were interested in figuring out how a new policy, like a tax cut or an interest rate hike, might affect the economy. But economists cannot run controlled experiments in real life to see what happens when a policy is executed and compare the results to when it is not. Instead, they have to study whatever history is available to them, with all the complicated conditions that happened to coincide with the policy change. Dr. Sargent and Dr. Sims developed statistical methods to organize historical data and disentangle these many variables. Their new methodologies are used to figure out whether a policy change that happened in the past affected the economy or whether it was made in anticipation of events that policymakers thought would happen later. The methods also help decipher how regular people’s expectations for government policies can affect their behavior.

U.N. finds ‘systematic’ torture in Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan (NY Times) — Suspects are hung by their hands, beaten with cables and in some cases their genitals are twisted until they lose consciousness in detention facilities run by the Afghan intelligence service and the Afghan national police, according to a study released Monday by the United Nations here. The report provides a devastating picture of the abuses committed by arms of the Afghanistan government as the American-led foreign forces here are moving to

wind down their presence after a decade of war. The abuses were uncovered even as American and other Western trainers and mentors had been working closely with the ministries overseeing the detention facilities and funded their operations. Acting on an early draft of the report seen last month, NATO stopped handing over detainees to the Afghans in several areas of the country. The report found evidence of a “pattern and practice of systematic torture and ill-treatment” during interrogation in the accounts of

nearly half of the detainees of the intelligence service, known as the National Directorate of Intelligence, who were interviewed by United Nations researchers. The national police treatment of detainees was somewhat less severe and widespread, the report found. Its research covered 47 facilities sites in 22 provinces. “Use of interrogation methods, including suspension, beatings, electric shock, stress positions and threatened sexual assault is unacceptable by any standard of international human rights law,” the report said.

Recession officially over, Copts criticize Egypt government over killings U.S. incomes kept falling CAIRO (NY Times) — Egypt’s Coptic Church harshly criticized the government on Monday over its actions in crushing a bloody protest in Cairo the night before that left at least 24 people dead, mostly Christians, as grieving families began to bury their dead, some of them mangled by tanks, bullets and beating wounds. The protest on Sunday was the most violent in Egypt since the revolution that toppled Hosni Mubarak from the presidency

eight months ago and raised new questions about the country’s ability to move forward toward a pluralistic and tolerant democracy. In a statement, the Coptic Church, which represents about 10 percent of Egypt’s 85 million people, accused military and police forces of allowing anti-Christian instigators to turn what had been a peaceful protest into a sectarian riot, then used the violence as a pretext for deadly force directed largely against the Coptic protesters.

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — In a grim sign of the enduring nature of the economic slump, household income declined more in the two years after the recession ended than it did during the recession itself, new research has found. Between June 2009, when the recession officially ended, and June 2011, inflation-adjusted median household income fell 6.7 percent, to $49,909, according to a study by two former Census Bureau officials. During the recession — from December 2007 to June 2009 — household income fell 3.2 percent. The finding helps explain why Americans’ attitudes toward the economy, the country’s direction and its political leaders have continued to sour even as the economy has been growing. Unhappiness and anger have come to dominate the political scene, including the early stages of the 2012 presidential campaign.

Poll: Romney leads in N.H. by 18 points BY DENIS PAISTE THE UNION LEADER

MANCHESTER — Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney leads a HarvardSaint Anselm poll of likely Republican primary voters at 38 percent, 18 points ahead of his nearest competitor. “He is the best-known candidate, and the most favorably viewed, with a 75 percent favorable rating,” said Chris Galdieri, assistant professor of politics at Saint Anselm College, Herman Cain registered second at 20 percent, with Ron Paul third at 13 percent. All the other follow candidates, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry, were in single digits. Perry, at just 4 percent, had a favorable rating of 43 percent but an almost equally high unfavorable rating of 41 percent. The poll shows there is yet no clear alternative to Romney for Republican primary voters who might be dissatisfied with him, Galdieri said. “With regard to Herman Cain, he’s got much more support amongst

Tea Party supporters than amongst respondents as a whole,” he said. Forty-six percent described themselves as Tea Party supporters, while 38 percent said they were a supporter or didn’t know. Romney had an unfavorable rating of just 21 percent. “There is no second candidate in the race, and I think the dynamic we’ve seen is it might be difficult for someone to become a strong challenger to him in New Hampshire,” Galdieri said. The economy and jobs were the top issues identified in the poll, with the economy the pick for 34 of respondents and jobs/unemployment at 16 percent. The telephone poll of 648 likely Republican Primary voters as conducted Oct. 2 through 6, 2011, and has a margin of error or 4.4 percentage points. The poll was conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International for the Institute of Politics at Harvard University and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College.

Weekend temperatures set record BY TIM BUCKLAND THE UNION LEADER

CONCORD — Sunday’s summerlike weather broke a 102-year-old record for high temperatures in Concord, according to the National Weather Service. Concord, which reached 85 degrees Sunday, set a new high record, topping the 83 degrees recorded in 1909. “That was a nice old one,” Margaret Curtis, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Gray, Maine, said of the old record. The sunshine and high temperatures around the state are thanks to a “big ridge of high pressure” that settled over the Northeast, she said. According to the state Department

of Travel and Tourism, today’s Columbus Day holiday should be ideal for viewing foliage. The state’s foliage map, available at, shows that the Dartmouth and Lake Sunapee, Great North Woods and White Mountains regions are at peak. The Merrimack Valley, Lakes and Monadnock regions are at near-peak conditions, while the Seacoast Region has areas that are “just turning” or near peak, according to the foliage map. Curtis said the nice weather will continue through today and Tuesday. Wednesday will be a different story, as a storm system dumping rain and snow over the Midwest approaches and collects more moisture from a storm system off the Eastern shore.

Paul Krugman The New York Times

Confronting the Malefactors There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear, but we may, at long last, be seeing the rise of a popular movement that, unlike the Tea Party, is angry at the right people The protesters are getting more attention and expanding outside New York. What are they doing right, and what are they missing? When the Occupy Wall Street protests began three weeks ago, most news organizations were derisive if they deigned to mention the events at all. For example, nine days into the protests, National Public Radio had provided no coverage whatsoever. It is, therefore, a testament to the passion of those involved that the protests not only continued but grew, eventually becoming too big to ignore. With unions and a growing number of Democrats now expressing at least qualified support for the protesters, Occupy Wall Street is starting to look like an important event that might even eventually be seen as a turning point. What can we say about the protests? First things first: The protesters’ indictment of Wall Street as a destructive force, economically and politically, is completely right. A weary cynicism, a belief that justice will never get served, has taken over much of our political debate — and, yes, I myself have sometimes succumbed. In the process, it has been easy to forget just how outrageous the story of our economic woes really is. So, in case you’ve forgotten, it was a play in three acts. In the first act, bankers took advantage of deregulation to run wild (and pay themselves princely sums), inflating huge bubbles through reckless lending. In the second act, the bubbles burst — but bankers were bailed out by taxpayers, with remarkably few strings attached, even as ordinary workers continued to suffer the consequences of the bankers’ sins. And, in the third act, bankers showed their gratitude by turning on the people who had saved them, throwing their support — and the wealth they still possessed thanks to the bailouts — behind politicians who promised to keep their taxes low and dismantle the mild regulations erected in the aftermath of the crisis. Given this history, how can you not applaud the protesters for finally taking a stand? Now, it’s true that some of the protesters are oddly dressed or have silly-sounding slogans, which is inevitable given the open character of the events. But so what? I, at least, am a lot more offended by the sight of exquisitely tailored plutocrats, who owe their continued wealth to government guarantees, whining

that President Obama has said mean things about them than I am by the sight of ragtag young people denouncing consumerism. Bear in mind, too, that experience has made it painfully clear that men in suits not only don’t have any monopoly on wisdom, they have very little wisdom to offer. When talking heads on, say, CNBC mock the protesters as unserious, remember how many serious people assured us that there was no housing bubble, that Alan Greenspan was an oracle and that budget deficits would send interest rates soaring. A better critique of the protests is the absence of specific policy demands. It would probably be helpful if protesters could agree on at least a few main policy changes they would like to see enacted. But we shouldn’t make too much of the lack of specifics. It’s clear what kinds of things the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators want, and it’s really the job of policy intellectuals and politicians to fill in the details. Rich Yeselson, a veteran organizer and historian of social movements, has suggested that debt relief for working Americans become a central plank of the protests. I’ll second that, because such relief, in addition to serving economic justice, could do a lot to help the economy recover. I’d suggest that protesters also demand infrastructure investment — not more tax cuts — to help create jobs. Neither proposal is going to become law in the current political climate, but the whole point of the protests is to change that political climate. And there are real political opportunities here. Not, of course, for today’s Republicans, who instinctively side with those Theodore Roosevelt-dubbed “malefactors of great wealth.” Mitt Romney, for example — who, by the way, probably pays less of his income in taxes than many middle-class Americans — was quick to condemn the protests as “class warfare.” But Democrats are being given what amounts to a second chance. The Obama administration squandered a lot of potential good will early on by adopting bankerfriendly policies that failed to deliver economic recovery even as bankers repaid the favor by turning on the president. Now, however, Mr. Obama’s party has a chance for a do-over. All it has to do is take these protests as seriously as they deserve to be taken. And if the protests goad some politicians into doing what they should have been doing all along, Occupy Wall Street will have been a smashing success.

excitement. She’d want to know what other technological marvels had been invented in the past 41 years. She’d ask about space colonies on Mars, flying cars, superfast nuclear-powered airplanes, artificial organs. She’d want to know how doctors ended up curing cancer and senility. You’d have to bring her down gently. We don’t have any of those things. Airplanes are pretty much the same now as they were then; so are cars, energy sources, appliances, houses and neighborhoods. A person born in 1900 began with horse-drawn buggies and died with men walking on the Moon, but the last few decades have seen nothing like that sort of technological advance. Recently, a number of writers have grappled with this innovation slowdown. Michael Mandel wrote a BusinessWeek piece in 2009. Tyler Cowen wrote an influential book called “The Great Stagnation” in 2010. The science-Fiction writer Neal Stephenson has just published a piece called “Innovation Starvation” in World Policy Journal and Peter Thiel, who helped create PayPal and finance Facebook, had an essay called “The End of the Future” in National Review. These writers concede that there has been incredible innovation in information technology. Robotics also seems to be humming along nicely, judging by how few workers are needed by manufacturing plants now. But the pace of change is slowing down in many other sectors. As Thiel points out, we travel at the same speeds as we did a halfcentury ago, whether on the ground or in the air. We rely on the same basic energy sources. Warren Buffett made a $44 billion investment in 2009. It was in a railroad that carries coal. The Green Revolution improved grain yields by 126 percent from 1950 to 1980, but yields have risen only by 47 percent in the decades since. The big pharmaceutical companies have very few blockbuster drugs in the pipeline. They are slashing their research departments. If you buy the innovation stagnation thesis, three explanations seem most compelling. First, the double hump nature of the learning curve. When researchers are climbing the first hillside of any problem, they think they can see the top. But once they get there, they realize things are more complicated than they thought. They

have to return to fundamentals and climb an even steeper hill ahead. We have hit the trough phase in all sorts of problems — genetics, energy, research into cancer and Alzheimer’s. Breakthroughs will come, just not as soon as we thought. Second, there has been a loss of utopian élan. If you go back and think about America’s big World’s Fairs or if you read about Bell Labs in its heyday or Silicon Valley in the 1980s or 1990s, you see people in the grip of utopian visions. They imagine absurdly perfect worlds. They feel as though they have the power to begin the world anew. These were delusions, but inspiring delusions. This utopianism is almost nowhere to be found today. Stephenson and Thiel point out that science fiction is moribund; the new work is dystopian, not inspiring. Thiel argues that the environmentalist ethos has undermined the faith in gee-whiz technological wizardry. Legal institutions and the cable TV culture dampen enthusiasm by punishing failure so remorselessly. NASA’s early failures were seen as steps along the way to a glorious future. Deepwater Horizon’s failure demoralized the whole nation. Third, there is no essential culture clash. Look at the Steve Jobs obituaries. Over the course of his life, he combined three asynchronous idea spaces — the counterculture of the 1960s, the culture of early computer geeks and the culture of corporate America. There was LSD, “The Whole Earth Catalogue” and spiritual exploration in India. There were also nerdy hours devoted to trying to build a box to make free phone calls. The merger of these three idea networks set off a cascade of innovations, producing not only new products and management styles but also a new ideal personality — the corporate honcho in jeans and the long-sleeve black T-shirt. Formerly marginal people came together, competed fiercely and tried to resolve their own uncomfortable relationships with society. The roots of great innovation are never just in the technology itself. They are always in the wider historical context. They require new ways of seeing. As Einstein put it, “The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” If you want to be the next Steve Jobs and end the innovation stagnation, maybe you should start in hiphop.

Fall into a frenzy of fun Ladies Night. On Ladies Night you and your fabulous friends will discover what downtown has to offer you. I’m hoping to debut my latest purchase. Oh, I must’s the ultrasonic machine. Using the unique benefits of ultrasound technology and micro current, the ultrasonic facial is scientifically proven to increase blood supply to the collagen layer to provide strength and firmness. It gently exfoliates, allowing for deeper penetration of products, tones and tightens. Ultrasonic facials are appropriate for all skin types. Facial treatment results in: firmer

skin; reduction of wrinkles; reduces puffiness and discoloration around the eyes; stimulates blood and lymph circulation; regenerates skin cell, which improves healing and tone; reduces blackheads; facilitates the absorption of nourishing product. Retail area will be at 20 percent off unless otherwise noted. Recent arrivals are San Diego Co. fall hats, SallyeAnder soaps, Viva Beads bracelets and earrings, Spoon Rings and hoping for the arrival of The Fortune Keeper necklaces. Keeping a few surprises for that night. Not to disappoint beverages and munchies will be served. See you then!

Middle Earth

Main Street’s love child/bad boy, is now forty years old or more (it was the 60s, who remembers?) Way back then, we carried bell-bottoms, beads, tie-dyed shirts, incense, posters, waterbeds and unmentionables, the public then was unsure if we were a cultural threat or simply amusing. We’ve aged, yet remain unmoderated, unpredictable and unrepentant in our bold selection of gifts. The list is long.

Good things are: Silver, jewelry, home decor, candles and oils, fairies, gargoyles and dragons, ethnic, stained glass, tapestries, art prints, men stuff..and lingerie, women’s home companions, and unmentionables! Unusual varied gifts to please a nun to a pole dancer, a stoner to a banker! In short, we’re a fun shop with a flavor of a country store on acid. And the public seems to like it! 752-7400.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Staying balanced requires flexibility. Your level of grace depends on just how quickly you can make adjustments. It takes the right combination of strength and fluidity to dance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are times when you feel like you’re just pretending to be yourself. Usually, this state reflects a change in your identity that you haven’t quite caught up with yet. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A situation is causing you more worry than you had anticipated. It’s nobody’s fault that you feel the way you do. However, you are the only one who can move yourself into a new emotional tone. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You like so many things about your life these days. One of the things you like most is that you recognize your own power to change. You have the courage to create the next scene. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your extremely high expectations sometimes benefit you, though these expectations may cause you and others more stress than they’re worth. Bring it down a few notches. You’ll be happier -- everyone will. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 11). Your active pursuit of a new goal will release an inner well of strength in you. Family dynamics improve in November. You’ll pick up a fun new habit or interest in December. It is so impressive the way you remain focused through conflict in January, and you will be promoted to a position of leadership. Sagittarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 41, 39 and 18.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re still not sure whether to attend an upcoming event. Sure, your friends will be there -- and so will your “frenemies.” You may be worried about how to bridge the divide. The whole thing seems like a lot of work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Once you give someone a special place in your heart, you’re not likely to get the space back. It will be like a tenant who never leaves -- and maybe he or she is so solid that you don’t ever want that tenant to go. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is always something inconvenient about morality. Yet, if you really believe in the rightness or wrongness of an action, there will certainly be consequences for following through with it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When it comes down to presenting ideas, you’ll have the winning delivery. Whether it’s about where to go for lunch or how to invest money, your way of stating things will heavily influence others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This is a day to follow your own interests. Talk to people who stir your curiosity, and take pictures of the things you find beautiful. As you honor your preferences and inclinations, everything falls in line. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will be excited to go further into an area of study. You sense that what you know already is just the tip of the iceberg. There is much more to this than meets the eye. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).

DEAR ABBY: I read the letter from “On My Own in Bloomington, Ind.” (Aug. 5), who needed a ride to her colonoscopy appointment but didn’t have transportation. Your suggestions were admirable, but there is another service you should be aware of. Many states have a 2-1-1 Information and Referral Service, often sponsored by the local United Way. It has trained information and referral specialists available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to listen to individuals’ needs or questions, help callers make informed decisions, and link them to a variety of community resources that fit their needs. Those needs could be anything from a volunteer driver for a medical appointment to help caring for an aging relative, consumer help, child-care services, finding a local food shelf, domestic abuse shelter or chemical dependency treatment. When you don’t know whom to call, call 2-1-1. It is available to help you find answers confidentially. -- LYNETTA IN DULUTH, MINN. DEAR LYNETTA: My readers never cease to amaze me. You always come through with all kinds of suggestions for any situation, as you did again. Thanks to all of you. I’m sure the information will be appreciated. My newspaper readers’ comments: DEAR ABBY: I have a few suggestions for “On My Own.” She should contact a social worker at the hospital where her doctor works. As you pointed out, many people have this problem, and I bet the social worker will have some solutions. Second, there is probably a nursing school nearby. She should contact the dean of students to find out whether a nursing student would be available and would like to earn some extra money in this useful way. -- JACQUELINE, R.N., NEW YORK

DEAR ABBY: This is one of the many jobs home-health care aides are hired and trained for. My mother has worked for an agency and has accompanied many clients -- seniors and younger people -- on doctor and hospital visits. Many businesses that advertise “senior care” also provide services to non-seniors with disabilities, temporary health issues, and people who just need a “friend” for a few hours. There are also volunteer organizations that provide similar services, although some may not have training or appropriate insurance or be bonded by the organization, as many home-health care businesses do. -- ALEXANDRA IN PITTSBURGH DEAR ABBY: Many senior centers offer this service for medical appointments and procedures. The drivers are covered by insurance and are trained on customer service techniques. My husband has taken many people for this procedure. He typically leaves his number with the medical staff, who call him when the patient is ready to be picked up. Rarely do patients need someone at home with them afterward as long as they stay quiet. -- HAPPY TO HELP IN IRVINE, CALIF. DEAR ABBY: One solution to the problem of not having family/friends available to accompany a single person for a colonoscopy is to trade time. I’ll go with you for yours, and you go with me for mine. -- RICK IN WISCONSIN DEAR ABBY: There are non-medical in-home care providers in many cities such as Seniors Helping Seniors that can provide the transportation and companionship that is needed. Check the phone book under Home Health Care and Services or Senior Citizens Organizations, or search the Web for non-medical in-home care. -- EILEEN IN LAKE HAVASU CITY, ARIZ.

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

Huskies fall to Crusaders 1-0, fly past the Purple Eagles, 5-0 BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

LITTLETON/GORHAM -- Littleton’s Keegan MacFarland scored the game’s only goal with just over ten minutes to play and went on to defeat Gorham 1-0 in a boy’s Division IV soccer game in Littleton Monday. At 27:11 of the second half, a scramble took place in front of the Gorham net. The scramble came after a diving save by Huskie sophomore goal keeper, Tyler Sanschagrin, was made on the right side on a shot coming from approximately eight yards out. After the save the ball deflected to Littleton’s Macfarland right in front. On the put back shot, Huskie defender, Andrew Lemieux, got a piece of the shot. However, the ball managed to end in up in the net for a 1-0 Crusader victory. For the game, Gorham’s Sanschagrin had twelve saves and Littleton’s Tom Quillen blocked seven Huskie vollies. In corners, Littleton held a six to two advantage. “The team played with a lot of heart and really put some pressure on a very good Littleton squad,” said head coach Billy Goodrich. “We created good chances with very good pressure on the ball and after losing Michael Turgeon and Chris Defosses to injury, Brian Veazey and Brady Fauteux did a very good job stepping up.” The sound play by Gorham continued into a home game 5-0 victory over Groveton Wednesday. Senior captain Pat Pike got the Huskies on the board at 2:09, on a long free kick from 35 yards out. The shot deflected off a Groveton defender and over the goal keeper’s head, for Pike’s first goal of the season and a 1-0 lead. Fellow senior, Cody Gauthier, decided to keep the trend of first goals of the season, scoring unassisted at

3:50 of the first half. Gauthier won the ball around thirty yards out in front of the Eagle net on a failed Groveton clearing attempt. Gauthier’s blast was a low skipping shot from fifteen yards away, beating the keeper to the lower left side. Gorham took a 3-0 lead into the intermission break. Junior Hunter Lambertson scored at 18:01, from team mate Jon Chabot. A nice centering pass from the right side by Chabot found Lambertson in front and unmarked. The Huskies top goal getter used a quick settle and quick shot to upper right corner for the his eleventh goal of the Fall. In the second half, Lambertson scored at 17:15 from Gauthier for a 4-0 advantage. Gauthier’s corner kick from the left side, was headed in by the Huskie sniper, hitting the upper right corner from ten yards out. Junior Sam Jensen netted the final goal at 22:57 from Chabot. A beautiful cross by Chabot from the right side and a text book heading finish by Jensen from about eight yards, found the upper right corner making it a final score of 5-0. The goal was Jensen’s fifth of the year. Saves for the game were Gorham’s Tyler Sanschagrin four, and Groveton’s Chris Helms eleven. The Huskies dominated the corner shots twelve to one. “A much needed win to keep us in the hunt for a home playoff game,” said coach Goodrich. “The team played some very good procession soccer, particularly in the second half under some tough field conditions. Hopefully, this can set us up for a strong finish.” The Huskies travel to Colebrook on Friday for a date with the Mohawks.

Berlin boys swim past Lakers, 4-0 BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN-- The Berlin boy’s soccer team looked solid after more than a week off due to a couple of weather cancellations. Berlin used excellent ball possession and got a pair of goals from senior Jake Drouin and went on to defeat Interlakes Regional High School 4-0 in Berlin Thursday. Drouin’s first goal of the game came unassisted at 8:58 of the first half. the goal was Drouin’s fourth of the year giving the Mountaineers a 1-0 lead. Sophomore winger Dustin Heath was next to find the back of the net at 16:17 of the first half. The play was set up by teammate Dimitri Giannos for the 2-0 advantage. The goal was Heath’s third this year. Just one minute later, sophomore winger Connor Jewett notched his fourth of the year, taking a feed from

Drouin, to put the home town Mounties on top 3-0 at the intermission. The second half, was all Berlin. The ball made it over mid-field into the Berlin end on very few occasions. The final Berlin goal came from the foot of Drouin with 18:46 left to play. Jon Lam was the play maker for the Mountaineers. The goal keeping duties was split by Laker keepers Johah Seiss and Kaleb Phelps. The duo combined for seven saves, while Berlin’s Curtis Arsenault was blocking just two Laker attempts. The Lakers had two corner kicks. Berlin will be faced with a tough challenge following the 4-0 victory. The Mounties travel to Alton Bay to take on the always tough Prospect Mountain Timber Wolves on Friday. BHS 3 1-4 IRHS 0 0-0Scoring: IRHS- none, BHS- Drouin 2, Heath, Jewett.

MOUNT WASHINGTON -- A Newton New Hampshire man had to be rescued off Mount Washington Thursday, Oct. 6, after he slid approsimately 15 feet down a rock face on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail. The incident occurred at approximately 3 p.m. According to NH Fish and Game officials, Rich Francoeur, 46, sustained an injury to his right knee. Conservation Officers from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department along with members

of the Army National Guard and the Appalachian Mountain Club responded to Francoeur’s emergency call and extracted him from the mountain with the assistance of an Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter. Francoeur was brought to the base of Mount Washington in Pinkham Notch, where he was evaluated by Gorham Ambulance personnel before being transported to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin.

well,” he said. Newton credits friends and family with helping make the book a reality. Despite a request for no credit on the project, Newton made sure to list Gorham High School teacher Rob Hamel as editor. Hamel was key to helping Newton through the writing process, he said, along with friend John Dubey who provided feedback and helped refine some aspects of the storytelling. The work was a family affair in more ways than one, Newton said. He thanked many family members in the acknowledgements at the front of the novel and also noted that his sister-in-law provided the cover art and map of Rairal. The book was published by, and is available on that site in paperback for $12.99 or as an ebook for $1.99. Newton said the book will be available on within a couple of weeks and he will be selling them locally on Oct. 9 at the Northern Forest Heritage Park’s Writers’ Festival. He also hopes that local stores will stock the book. Kyle is the son of Scott Newton of Gorham and Laurelle Cote of Berlin.

Bachmann: ‘We’re going to get your country back’ BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Minnesota congresswoman and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann railed against President Obama and the rest of Washington at a town hall meeting at the Lobster Trap restaurant in North Conway on Sunday “We all know the government is spending way too much money,” she said. “What Washington is doing right now is destroying our country.” The dining room was packed, from the chairs around Bachmann to the hallway feeding into the room. Television cameras lined the back wall, and a half dozen people asked questions about issues from immigration to Social Security. It was at Obama’s heath care reform law, however, that she took aim at. “This was an unconstitutional law that the people didn’t want,” she said, calling it “dictatorial” and “the new playground of the radical left.” “This will be the destruction of the United States,” she said. If elected she would move to repeal the law in her first 100 days, she said, but “we have to get 13 more like-minded Senators.” Waivers and executive orders won’t cut it to get the law repealed, she said. She would also repeal the DoddFrank financial reform in that period, she said. “We’re going to get your country back.” Government debt, spending and agencies would also get the ax under a Bachmann administration. “We have to cut 40 percent out of our budget,” she said. She would eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Education, she said, and a list other agencies. She avoided answering a question from local Republican Linda Teagan, however, on whether Social Security would change if she were in office. Teagan was still impressed by Bachmann’s performance even though she breezed past the question. The congresswoman was “better than I expected,” Teagan said.

But several people voiced concerns that Bachmann's lack of time spent in New Hampshire might hurt her chances in the primary. “I know that some people are already disappointed that she didn’t come here sooner,” said Theresa Ann Gallagher, a supporter from Conway, “and that she waited so long to show up. So she might have some issues and some problems here.” This was Bachmann’s first visit to New Hampshire since June. She blamed her absence on the debt debates in Washington that occurred earlier this year. “That’s why you didn’t see me in New Hampshire a lot this summer,” she said. “My first duty was to go back to Washington D.C.”

But Bachmann did carve out time to visit other states. She went to Iowa 11 times in July, August and September, a period during which she didn’t come to New Hampshire once. Her absence from the state may be part of the reason her poll numbers have taken a dive. According to a WMUR Granite State Poll released last week, Bachmann is registering about 2 percent support among likely New Hampshire primary voters. “As the Republican field solidifies, Mitt Romney continues to lead among New Hampshire Republicans with 37 percent support,” the UNH Survey Center, which conducted the poll, said. “Herman Cain has moved into a distant second place.”

That’s way down from July, when following her performance at a CNN debate in Manchester, Bachmann who was filling the number two slot. But the race is far from over, and Bachmann was working the crowd for votes on Sunday. She shook hands and said hello to every person in the room, even clambering over chairs to reach the people in the back. And in her closing she urged those in attendance to come out and support her come January. “I’m here to make a promise to you,” she said. “It’s that I know what needs to be done. I’ve been there fighting on the front lines. I know what these problems are and it’s going to be tough, but I can do it. With your help I know that we can.”

Gas price averages down more than 3 cents in N.H. CONCORD — The price of gas in New Hampshire fell in line with the national average. The price-monitoring website reports Monday that average

retail gasoline prices in the state have fallen more than three cents in the past week, to $3.42 per gallon. That’s the same as the national average.

Even with another week with lower prices, drivers are still paying nearly 70 cents more per gallon now than at the same time last year. The national average has

decreased 24 cents per gallon during the last month. A company analyst says consumers should expect fluctuating prices in the near future. —Courtesy of WMUR
