Six Shelburne voters attend education forum BY GAIL SCOTT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

SHELBURNE—Only six of Shelburne’s 367 residents turned out for the town’s forum on the future of education in the Androscoggin Valley Tuesday. They were Darlene and Val Dube, Ray and Hildy Danforth, Roland Simard, and Greg Corrigan. Despite the small number, the meeting proceeded in the format already followed in Berlin, Randolph, Milan, and Gorham, and planned for the meeting in Errol Wednesday. In this case, the discussion was led by Kathleen C. McCabe, Ph.D., Graduate Education Program Liason, Plymouth State University, College of Graduate Studies— one of the two facilitators engaged, thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund, to

help area educators gauge the climate for change in area education. In the straw poll following the discussion the six Shelburne voters considered the same ten alternatives already presented to the other town audiences. Four favored alternative six: one School Administrative Unit, one high school, one middle school and all elementary schools remaining the same. One Shelburner chose the second alternative: keep both SAUs (3 and 20) and all schools, but consolidate some services. Another chose the “create study group” alternative. But in the discussion preceding the vote, the group saw merit in both keeping the SAUs and the schools separate and in consolidation. On the separate side, they noted see SHELBURNE page 8

UNH and NH Fish and Game conducting black bear study DURHAM -- The University of New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department are conducting a study to try and better understand NH residents’ thoughts about bears in their community, interactions with bears, and management techniques used to reduce humanbear conflicts. Six communities (Bartlett, Franconia, Gorham, Lancaster, Lincoln, and Whitefield) have been chosen to participate in this study. A written survey will be sent to randomly selected landowners in each of these towns during October. The survey will give wildlife managers and community officials a better understanding of how residents are impacted by bears, in addition to what management techniques are publicly supported and which are not. If you receive a survey, which will take about 20 minutes to complete, please take the time to fill it in and offer your opinions. Your

answers will be used to improve the quality of life for people and bears in your community. If you have any questions about this study please contact Jaclyn Comeau, graduate student at the University of New Hampshire: jvx23@wildcats.unh.edu.

Partnerships stressed at luncheon honoring Family Resource Center BY BARBARA TETREAULT

Earlier this year, the mill was sold and reopened under new ownership after being closed for eight months. “That’s why is so important to have these partnership. Again it’s not that it’s going to be a personal benefit but it helps you to do your job better,” said Bald. Ray said he tries to be pro-active and build relationships and alliances before starting a new business. Benson said he believes the North Country is ahead of the rest of the state in terms of collaboration and partnerships. He said balancing immediate needs with long-term strategic needs is one of the biggest challenges facing a new partnership. When two organizations get together, Benson said there is an educational process that needs to occur. Everyone, he said, needs to go in with an open mind and a willingness to compromise. Eneguess noted partnerships require change and most people, she said, do not like change. She said it is important to determine what each organization will get out of the partnership. Ray said organizations should enter into partnership cautiously. He said some work but others fall apart. “My father always said partnership is a tough ship to sail or don’t marry someone

THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- The importance of forging partnerships in economic development was stressed yesterday at a luncheon celebrating the Family Resource Center’s selection as Business NH Magazine’s 2011 Nonprofit Business of the Year. A panel, moderated by Business NH Magazine Editor Matthew Mowry, discussed why partnerships, although sometimes difficult to develop, are vital, especially in times of limited resources. Panelists N.H. Commissioner of Resources and Economic Development George Ball, Common Man Family of Restaurants Owner Alex Ray, N.H. Charitable Foundation Senior Program Officer Peter Benson and White Mountains Community College President Katharine Eneguess spoke about some of the benefits and challenges of pursuing partnerships. Bald said relationships are primary in developing partnerships, and like relationships, partnerships require commitment and hard work to be successful. He said state agencies try to work cooperatively with companies. Bald said Gorham Paper and Tissue Mill Manager Willis Blevins reported he has never worked in a state where people cooperate and work so closely together.

Bull run: Danger, yes. Liability, no. CAVE CREEK, Ariz. (NY Times) — As Hemingway pointed out, sprinting ahead of a herd of snarling bulls certainly makes the heart beat faster. But so does what one must do before an American-style running of the bulls begins: sign an extremely comprehensive liability waiver. Phil Immordino, who organized three bull runs in Nevada and Arizona a decade ago modeled on Spain’s famous running of the bulls in Pamplona, took a hiatus after insurance costs rose so high that he could not turn a profit. But he is back at it this month in Cave Creek, a Westernstyle town north of Phoenix. Mr. Immordino expects hundreds of runners to sprint along a quarter-mile track while being pursued by dozens of 1,500-pound rodeo bulls with names like Blood Money and Dooms Day. Also expected are animal rights activists, who take a dim view of an event they find cruel on its face. Before anyone runs, though, he or she is required to sign, and then sign some more. “We have a seven-page waiver, and they need to initial every paragraph and every page,” said Mr. Immordino, a Phoenix native who also organizes golf tournaments. “It says you, your neighbor, your cousin and your cousin’s brother can’t sue anybody about any of this.”

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — When President Obama recruited William M. Daley, a business-friendly banker with a Democratic pedigree to be his chief of staff 10 months ago, Mr. Daley seemed like the right man for a White House determined to cut deals with resurgent Republicans in Congress. Now Mr. Daley finds himself commanding a White House staff that has put its president on war footing with the opposi-

tion. It is an awkward turn of events for a man who seems more comfortable negotiating with Republicans than excoriating them, as Mr. Obama has over the last couple of weeks, as cold-hearted defenders of the rich. “The nation is being pushed into that, by the Republican primaries, by the type of ‘my-way-or-the-highway’ language in Congress,” Mr. Daley said in an interview,

LASHKAR GAH, Afghanistan (NY Times) — Punctually, at 8 p.m., the cellphone signals disappear in this provincial capital. Under pressure from the Taliban, the major carriers turn off their signal towers, effectively severing most of the connections to the rest of the world. This now occurs in some portion of more than half the provinces in Afghanistan, and exemplifies the Taliban’s new and more subtle ways of asserting themselves, even as NATO generals portray the insurgents as a diminished force less able to hold ground. The question is whether the Taliban need to hold territory as they once did in order to influence the population. Increasingly, it seems, the answer is no. Tactics like the cellphone offensive have allowed the Taliban to project their presence in far more insidious and sophisticated ways, using the instruments of modernity that they once shunned. The shutoff sends a daily reminder to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Afghans that the Taliban still hold substantial sway over their future.

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Senate Democratic leaders on Wednesday proposed a 5 percent surtax on people with incomes of more than $1 million a year to pay for the package of job-creation measures sought by President Obama and to quell a brewing revolt among Democrats against the White House plan. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid, Democrat of Nevada, said the surtax would raise $445 billion over 10 years, just about the amount needed to pay for the jobs bill. Reid said his proposal would “have the richest of the rich pay a

little bit more” — “5 percent more to fund job creation and ensure this country’s economic success.” Reid’s proposal was meant to draw a sharp contrast with Republicans and to win over Democrats who were resisting the president’s proposal due to the tax increases he had suggested. The approach is unlikely to win any backing from Republican leaders who strenuously oppose increases in tax rates, but the plan, which Senate Democrats had aired last year to a cool response from the White House, is seen by party strategists as having appeal with the public.

Obama calls himself the underdog after new polls portray him as a one-term president

THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, October 6, 2011— Page 3

BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Will President Obama be a oneterm president? According to a new ABC News/ Washington Post poll released Monday, just 37 percent of Americans believe President Obama will win reelection; 55 percent believe he will lose to the Republican nominee. It's the first poll to indicate the president's hold on the White House may be substantially slipping. In fact, President Obama is calling himself the underdog in the 2012 election. Obama Tuesday said the faltering economy is seriously impairing his chances of winning again in 2012. "Absolutely," he said in response to a question from ABC News' George Stephanopoulos about whether the odds were against him come November 2012, given the economy. "I'm used to being the underdog. But at the end of the day people are going to ask — who's got a vision?" In the ABC News/Washington post poll, conducted Sept. 29 to Oct. 2, 55 percent of Americans expect a Republican victory next year. Fewer, 37 percent, predict that Obama will win reelection. A majority of independents sense that the GOP nominee will prevail, but there is a gaping difference between party loyalists. According to the poll, 83 percent of Republicans say the GOP nominee — whoever he or she may be — is likely to claim the presidency next year. Among Democrats, far fewer, 58 percent, say they think Obama will

win a second term. A third of Democrats expect a GOP win; just 13 percent of Republicans sense a repeat for Obama. Republicans who “strongly support” the Tea Party political movement are particularly confident: 91 percent of these Republicans say they think the GOP candidate will win the general election. In Tuesday's interview, Obama conceded, the American people are "not better off" than they were four years ago. "The unemployment rate is way too high," he said of the 9 percent jobless rate, the highest in more than half a century. Obama believes his proposed American Jobs Act will put construction workers, teachers and veterans to work and give "more consumers more confidence." "Foreign affairs, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and social issues like gay marriage will all be fodder on the campaign trail, but with the first caucus and primaries less than 100 days away, no issue looms larger for 2012 than the economy and jobs," ABC News states. Obama's job approval rate is hovering at around 40 percent nationwide, but according to the Website American Research Group, the figure dips to 31 percent in the Granite State. The poll results were released Thursday. Obama's approval ratings in New Hampshire have just 31 percent approving of his overall performance while 59 percent disapprove and 10 percent remain undecided. When it comes to the economy, just

27 percent approve of the president's handling of it while 65 percent oppose and 8 percent are undecided. "A total of 51 percent of New Hampshire residents say they are financially worse off compared to a year ago," the website states. "Thirty-seven percent say they are the same, and 12 percent say they are better off. Of the 31 percent saying they approve of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president, 29 percent say they are better off, 50 percent say they are the same, and 21 percent say they are worse off. Of the 59 percent saying they disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job, 6 percent say they are financially better off, 29 percent say they are the same, and 65 percent say they are worse off compared to a year ago." Dante Scala, a political science professor at the University of New Hampshire, said the notable shift in Obama's support "is among undeclared or independent voters. Sixty-seven percent of undeclared voters in the state say they disapprove of how the president has handled the economy." Even though New Hampshire's unemployment rate is much lower than the national figure, Scala said voters here "are affected by rampant displeasure in the economy." Obama lost New Hampshire's primary to Hillary Clinton in 2008 but triumphed over John McCain here with 54 percent in the general election. The state carries four electoral votes. The American Research group poll was conducted by telephone from Sept. 25-29, surveying 547 adults in

New Hampshire. Republicans, Obama said Tuesday, have stood in the way of working with him time and again to fix the economy, opting to toe the party line. "At every step of way, I have tried to get the Republican Party to work with me on the biggest crisis of our lifetime," Obama said. "And each time we've gotten 'No.'" Obama called the 2012 race a "contest of values and vision" and a referendum on whether Americans believed the government should invest now in long-term improvements in education and infrastructure. According to the popular website Real Clear Politics, in the latest 2012 Republican Presidential National Poll (conducted by ABC News/The Washington Post, Sept. 29 through Sunday), former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, with 25 percent of the vote, holds an 8 point lead over Texas Governor Rick Perry and businessman Herman Cain, who both are garnering 17 percent; followed by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, 9 percent; Texas Congressman Ron Paul, 9 percent; Minnesota Congressman Michele Bachmann, 7 percent; former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, 2 percent; and former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, 1 percent. In New Hampshire, the Real Clear Politics average polling data from Aug. 15 through Sept. 21, Romney holds a 24 point lead with 38.7 percent of the vote. He is followed by Perry, 14.7; Paul, 13.7; Huntsman, 6.7; Bachmann, 6.7; Gingrich, 3.3; Cain, 2.7.

AG: Mother killed son before husband killed her

CONCORD — A New Hampshire man who returned home last year to find his 4-year-old son strangled by the boy’s mother and a 7-year-old daughter unconscious pleaded guilty Wednesday to killing his wife as she tried to commit suicide, officials said. The description in court was the first time New Hampshire authorities have revealed publicly what caused the death of Mason Smeltzer and the injuries to his sister, Mercey Smeltzer, last November at their home in Auburn.

The revelations came as the children’s father, 38-year-old Christopher Smeltzer pleaded guilty to a charge of manslaughter in the beating death of his wife, Mara Pappalardo. Prosecutors recommended Smeltzer serve 10 years of a 15- to 30-year sentence. Sentencing is set for Dec. 2. After the hearing, Pappalardo’s sister Maxine Waters called the death of Mason and her sister a “senseless tragedy.” New Hampshire Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said

during the hearing that Pappalardo had been hospitalized in the weeks before her death for extreme paranoia. Smeltzer and Pappalardo had been living with Smeltzer’s family in the weeks leading up to the killings, she said, and Pappalardo believed her mother-in-law and husband were trying to take the children away from her. The family had returned to their home on the night of Nov. 7. Smeltzer went out, and when he returned, he found his son dead on the bed in the master bedroom

and his daughter unconscious. Young said Smeltzer told police he “lost his marbles” and attacked Pappalardo with a flashlight. She had a rope around her neck and was apparently preparing to commit suicide, Young said. Smeltzer then tried to kill himself by taking a variety of drugs. Mercey woke him up the next day. He made his daughter tea, called his father and then called 911. —Courtesy of WMUR

How dare you slander Chief Alan Lowe? To the editor: I am writing in regards to your front-page story of Alan Lowe. First of all, how dare you. In elementary school we learn that there are two sides to every story and this one is no different. The ‘facts’ portrayed in your article are not a true statement of how the events took place. In your article you are commending the ‘victims’ when in actuality, Alan Lowe caught them in a crime punishable by a $1,000 fine. The state of New Hampshire made it illegal to urinate in public, let alone on someone’s private property, with a punishment minimum of a $1,000 fine. Where was that in your article? Nowhere in your article did it say that Alan Lowe is a veteran who has spent his entire life

taking care of his family, business, and country with pride and honesty, instead you portray him as a monster and a menace to society. I don’t believe that my 70-year-old Grandfather is a menace to society; in reality he is one of the kindest and most helpful person you will ever meet in your life. He is always willing to help out a neighbor or a small business in town. In fact, he even distributes your newspaper in his general store. The slander you printed has already left a mark on our family and in this small town. Ever heard of the saying, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?” Christa Rousseau Granddaughter, Gordon ‘Alan’ Lowe Jr. Randolph

The room was full of antiques and toys, furniture and electronics, Christmas and Halloween decorations, and many junkers, bargain hunters and homemade food lovers. It was great fun. Most appreciated were the people who came by expressly to make donations

in memory of loved ones we cared for, or just to say how much they admire the work we do and the way we do it. These people talked about the “great service AVHCS does for the community,” and “the wonderful staff” we are so fortunate to have. These testimonials are icing on the cake for us. The privilege, of course, is to help our clients and families in the best way we can day after day, and like our Dorothy, to believe that it makes a big difference for the people we care for at home. It is the reason we keep coming to work, and the one we prize see THANK YOU page 6

Once upon a Berlin Time New Gorham station

1906

Hello fellow Berlinites. I would like to apologize to Mark Tilton, as his name was not mentioned in the picture of the 1965 BHS state champion football team last week. Mark was an assistant coach for this great team. Sorry, Mark. While cruising through the year 1906 in both the Berlin Reporter and the Berlin Independent, I found that it was loaded with rich history of the “Paper City”. Here are some of these stories that took place one hundred and five years ago. One year after the huge Clement Block fire left a void up and down the corners of Main and Mason Streets, a new building was about to open. This beautiful and well appointed structure was the first Albert Theater. It had a seating capacity of about 1,400 with two balconies, one above the other. The front of these balconies and above the stage was decorated with stucco, the work of the Italian artist William Slade John Castanole, who decorated St. Anne’s Church. This theater opened on Saturday evening, January 6, 1906, with Francis Wilson as “Cousin Billy” and met with the expectations of the large audience in attendance. Sadly, the first Albert Theater burned to the ground on November 23, 1907 and another was built by 1910. January of 1906 also produced a new pastor for the Congregational Church on Main Street. The Reverend William F. Slade gave his first sermon to a capacity crowd in this church and his service was very much enjoyed. There was an additional pleasure in the fact that the new organ, a gift of W.W. Brown was used for the first time. Is that organ still

in this church? Mr. Slade came here from Braddock, Pennsylvania, after completing a four year pastorate there. Slade thus began his work as one of the many pastors who served at the Congregational Church here in Berlin. In January of 1906, it was agreed by the city of Berlin and C.C. Fitzgerald of Brockton, Massachusetts, to purchase five lots adjoining the easterly side of Pleasant Street, including the Dead River which flows down through here. Arrangements were made with H. C. Bates, a Berlin architect to draw plans for a one story building 72 by 125 feet. Workers would at once begin the construction for a roller skating rink and other sports of similar character. Mr. Fitzgerald was the manager of a roller skating rink in Brockton and believed that this was something which would pay well in a fast growing community such as Berlin. This same building lasted for many years and numerous businesses were in it until burning to the ground several years ago. It is now an empty lot across the street from Coos County Family Health. Just to show how rough it was during the early days, when the immigrants were establishing themselves in this area, the newspaper talked of a shooting that took place in the new village of Cascade. The headlines said that an innocent man suffered at the hands of drunken rowdies. On Monday evening January 8, 1906, Charles Landry, whose home was near one of the early shanties in Cascade, was roused to his door by a brawl that was taking place outside and was shot accidentally. Some thirtyfive number eight bird shot entered his arm and back. Although suffering badly, Landry was able to make his way up to the office of Doctor T. C. Pulsifer and have his wounds dressed. As a result of this shooting, the Berlin police received complaints from leading citizens in the area that drinking at the Cascades should be stopped, because way too see 1906 page 5

many accidents had taken place there as a result of drunken brawls. Of course, Cascade is a part of the town of Gorham, so the Berlin authorities notified Deputy Sheriff John B. Noyes and two warrants were sworn out and served on January 9, 1906 to Guiseppe Bonodio and Santindi Perchio. That same evening, another was served on Arvenzio DeProspero, from whose shack it was alleged that the shooting took place. Two of these three men were put in jail pending bonds. There was great talk in both Berlin and Gorham that the state of affairs in this new Italian section was not being pursued and lawlessness prevailed without consequences being handed out. It was said that Berlin’s Norwegian section of Berlin Mills was just like this until the city of Berlin put a special policeman on duty in this district. I do not know if this was done in Cascade, but this city certainly had many problems with a few of the great number of immigrants who came here to work in these days. On Monday, January 15, 1906, Berlin’s newest school opened. This building, called the Burgess School, was built on the same spot as Berlin’s first high school, which burned to the ground on December 16, 1904. This newest education facility accommodated 200 students of the lower grades at the time it opened. The same building still stands today, as the center portion of the old Notre Dame High School on Upper School Street. In a story that I wrote in 1999, the original wooden Marston School, built in 1898, burned to the ground on Friday February 2, 1906. Although over 300 hundred children were in this building at the time, the orderly evacuation and heroism on the part of some of these students assured no loss of life. The brick school that stands today was built on the same spot by the end of 1906. Finally, on Sunday February 4, 1906, not to be outdone by the city of Berlin, the town of Gorham lost its beautiful Grand Trunk depot to a major fire. In spite of the heroic efforts of the fire department, along with the station and yard officials, this attractive structure was destroyed past any hope of saving or rebuilding. Grand

Trunk agent F.R. Jennings said that the total damage was about $4,000 and that it was the beauty of the architectural design and finish that could not be replaced. It was thought by the officials that the fire started because of a defective chimney, as the flames broke through the roof and the fire was discovered about 10 am by Mr. Andrus Vachon, a switchman in the yard. Agent Jennings and telegraph operator William Oleson, who were both in their offices, were notified and the alarm was sounded. In a very short time, a throng of men was seen emptying the structure of all its belongings. Almost everything was removed, including the stoves, with coal still burning in them. They were put out into the snow and soon put back into service at the nearby Alpine House, where temporary quarters were at once established. When the firemen arrived, they found considerable difficulty in reaching the flames and the fire made such rapid headway that only a few charred partitions remained standing when it was finally extinguished. The problem did not come from the new town hydrants, as they all worked well. The article did not say what caused the difficulty in fighting this fire. As previously cited, the Alpine House became the temporary quarters until a new station could be constructed. I am not quite sure when this took place, but I am sure it was soon afterwards. The old Gorham station was built around 1866, about seven years before the erection of the famous Alpine House. At the time, it was the finest depot on the Grand Trunk Line. It had served well beyond its day and there was talk by officials for the need of a new station, with the plans already drawn up. When the new building was built, it was made of brick. This old depot still stands today, as a museum for the Gorham Historical Society. The accompanying picture was taken in the 1920’s. I will continue with what seems to be a very historical year in my next writing. Questions or comments email poof@ne.rr.com.

Joseph A. Bolash

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– OBITUARY –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

SHELBURNE, NH -- Mr. Joseph A. Bolash, 80, of 19 Hubbard Grove, Shelburne, NH, passed away on Tuesday October 4, 2011 at his home. He was born in New Jersey on September 11, 1931, the son of Joseph and Alva Bolash and grew up in New Jersey. He met Margaret Luciano, who he married in 1956 after his service in the US Army during the Korean War, where he received the Purple Heart. He was a machinist, milkman and bartender and came to Shelburne in 1947. He was self-employed as co-owner, along with his wife, of the JoMar Motel in Shelburne and later owned J & J’s Restaurant in Gorham. Joseph was a member of the Dupont-Holmes Post #82 American Legion and had an interest in remote control planes. He also held a horse training license and owned and raced horses in Lewiston and Scarborough, Me. Members of the family include THANK YOU from page 4

on your first date,” said Ray. He also noted that while avoiding duplication is preferred, duplication is better than no effort at all. Benson said forging is a word that implies using force to create partnerships. He said he prefers to think of it as a stew pot where everyone contributes to make a whole. Benson said the foundation is working to get nonprofit organizations to think about their internal structure. That means developing a strategic plan, putting together a strong staff and board of directors, and developing emerging leadership. Asked for examples of successful partnerships, Eneguess cited the Talent Team, formed by White Mountains Community College, N.H. Employment Security, and the Family Resource Center to maximize the economic impact of the federal prison locally. Eventually 20 different agencies were invited to participate in meetings designed to prepare local people for jobs and businesses to compete to supply goods and services to the federal prison. Eneguess said the meetings also served to squash false rumors. The team is still working to prepare workers and businesses while the region waits for the federal government to open the prison. Androscoggin Valley Chamber of Commerce Mark Belanger also cited the Family Resource Center’s work on the Talent Team in his remarks.

Belanger said the center developed a program to help people interested in applying to work at the federal prison pass the background check. The Applicant Background Investigation Drill (A-BID) especially works to help applicants research and repair their credit history. Belanger said the chamber nominated the Family Resource Center for the Nonprofit Business of the Year award because of the major contribution the organization has made to the region over the years. Family Resource Center Executive Director James Michalik said the center has grown in 14 years to a $1 million nonprofit employing over 50 people. Dispelling the two common myths about the organization, he said it is not a child care center and serves all income levels, not just low income clients. Michalik listed the center’s three main components - the Family Support Program, the After School Program, and the Financial Literacy and Working Families Program. He said the Family Support Program serves 240 families annually while the After School Program works with approximately 200 children in four schools. Through the Financial Literacy and Working Families Program, he said the center assisted 420 taxpayers, generating $670,000 in income tax payments. The luncheon was held at White Mountains Co

the small school population size as an advantage. They particularly noted that they are represented on the regional school board. “This is new for us,” said Simard, remarking on the Gorham/Randolph/ Shelburne Cooperative, and others noted, “we had to work hard to get that.” Having a vote on the school budget and other school matters in a district meeting was important to the group. Travel time was important. None was eager to increase the time it already takes for students to get to and from school in Gorham, not to mention the time involved in taking children to extracurricular activities and in going to school meetings from Shelburne. They like the rural nature of the schools at present and the ready opportunity to do outdoor activities. They were concerned about the possible loss of jobs in a consolidation, since many neighbors and friends are local teachers. Lastly, they noted that the Gorham/ Randolph/Shelburne district has recently invested a lot of money in school buildings and what would happen to that investment in a consolidation plan? On the pro side of consolidation, they thought costs would be more stable. Spread over a larger population, there would not be the highs and lows a small town experiences if, for instance, a special needs student needed to be tuitioned out of district. In a regional school, they thought course offerings might be expanded and offered more frequently during the day so that students would have

greater choice. Extracurricular activities offered could be increased, and with a larger staff, more teachers might be able to offer electives beyond the core curriculum. Also, a larger population and broader course offerings might attract more, better qualified teachers, although Hildy Danforth pointed out that the Danforth daughter was teaching in a small district and was therefore able to teach a wider variety of subjects. Danforth added that she had intended to come to the meeting, prepared to favor “staying in Gorham. My kids were in small classes in Gorham and they had inspired teachers, but when my daughter was home last weekend, she said, ‘No, it wouldn’t be a bad thing at all to be a part of Berlin. A bigger school would be better.’ She (Danforth’s daughter) said that when she was in high school, there were kids who couldn’t be in the advanced classes just because of scheduling conflicts.”” But Ray Danforth pointed out one of the major problems with consolidation: the difference in governance in the two SAUs. SAU 20 schools are governed by elected school boards. SAU 3 in Berlin must have its budget approved by the Berlin City Council. “The ability of Berlin and Gorham to work around the Berlin City Council is a major issue. I call it a taxation issue, but call it whatever you want, it’s an issue,” Danforth said. McCabe agreed and said that the issue had come up in all the meetings, but that the goal of the meetings was to determine if there were any point in continuing to search for a solution

to the area schools’ problems with dwindling population and dwindling finances. She pointed out that no one in the meetings had voted for the first alternative in the straw poll: to do nothing. “If it had, then (area administrators would have thought), why do a study group or look at the possibilities,” she said. SAU 3 Superintendent Corinne Cascadden said that she had been involved in two other area studies in the past when plans had been made and then presented to area residents

with a resounding lack of success. She said that is why this preliminary meeting program had been initiated. “There is no answer now,” said SAU 20 Superintendent Paul Bousquet. “Once this is all said and done, that’s when the real work starts and all the towns will be participants.” A summary report on all the meetings will be presented to area voters at two meetings: one on Oct. 19 in Berlin (Hillside Junior High School, 7-9 p.m.) and one in Gorham on Oct. 27 (Gorham Middle High School, 7-9 p.m.)

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s a fine line between being assertive and being pushy. You are aware that an over-demanding attitude will keep opportunities at bay. Therefore, you carefully choose your top needs and ask for them sweetly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Though hearing a loved one extol your virtues would be a pleasure indeed, you would prefer to see love demonstrated. The one who makes your life easier is the one who really loves you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). New ideas are difficult to put across. Everyone is a skeptic. You have to work extra hard to bring in familiar elements, so as not to frighten your audience away. Ultimately, your showmanship will sell it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Love at first sight doesn’t apply only to people. You’ll experience the phenomenon today. You’ll know the moment you lay eyes on the prize that you simply have to have it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Congratulatory talk is in order, and it will come from you and also be directed at you. You are an essential part of a team that is by all accounts winning today. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 6). Travel and education give you a sense of expansion that you’ll carry into relationships. Your generosity of spirit will attract both kindred souls and those who could use your help. There’s a fortuitous deal in November and another in May. December favors a change in personal policy and/or politics. February brings a move. Pisces and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 4, 33, 19 and 22.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It seems unfair that someone so easily accomplishes the very thing that you struggle incessantly to do. The fairness of it doesn’t change the situation. Forget about the others, and work with what you have. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It doesn’t matter where you are in the giving circle; helping and being helped are part of the same energy. There’s no shame in giving or in receiving, in having or in having not. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will clear out some old, stale atmosphere. This probably has to do with getting rid of papers and email messages you don’t need or ridding yourself of other clutter to invite in new energy. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are where you are. It’s a good place, once you stop wishing you were somewhere else. That is the tricky part, however. “Over there” looks so appealing now. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The names of all the people who have wronged you, and there have been many, are etched on a secret list kept in the back of your mind. You’ll let it go one of these days, but right now there’s still something to learn from the memory. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be an influential talker. You’ll hold a spirited parley while bringing your wares to the good people who can appreciate them. You’ll end the day richer than you were when you started. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You win by dogged persistence. Yet you make this look somehow graceful -- you don’t even sweat. Perseverance gains you what others miss by giving up too soon.

VAST MAJORITY OF READERS WOULD HAVE CHILDREN AGAIN

DEAR ABBY: In response to your poll (Aug. 24), “If you had it to do over again, would you have children?” my answer is, “I SURE WOULD!” Being a parent made me a better, more tolerant, more patient person and more willing to take risks. It wasn’t always easy. My son’s father left me when I was four months pregnant. With the help of my dear mother, I returned to work, completed my college degree and became a schoolteacher. I have so many wonderful memories. My son is grown now and works with special needs children, and I am proud of the man he has become. -- MOM IN SAN DIEGO DEAR MOM: Your feelings reflect the opinions of 78 percent of my readers, who voted yes to that question. The mail I received was profoundly touching. My newspaper readers comment: DEAR ABBY: I’m sitting in my oncologist’s office, waiting to be seen. Tomorrow is one year since I finished chemotherapy. Would I have children again? Absolutely. My husband and three amazing sons have brought so much love, joy and happiness to my life. It would have been hard living through two bouts of cancer 10 years apart, a mastectomy, chemo, radiation, surgery and hopelessness without these wonderful men in my life. They encouraged and supported me all along the way. Childbirth was painful, but if I was told I had to go through it again every month to have my children, I’d do it. Knowing I helped to create them makes me feel incredibly blessed. -JEANNE IN BONITA SPRINGS, FLA. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 44-year-old black woman. I feel a deep gratitude and am privileged to be a mother to my two daughters. I get to help shape and mold them and see how they

bloom. My journey to my girls was through adoption. God gave me a wonderful gift when we were placed together. Parenting is challenging and hard. Anyone who thinks differently is mistaken. But it’s something I’m proud of and love wholeheartedly. My sister has asked me on two separate occasions if I regret my decision. Never! -- EVA IN PHOENIX DEAR ABBY: If I could go back, I would not do it again. My children are beautiful, smart, caring and funny. I loved doting on them when they were little. However, I never realized what was coming -- that as teenagers they’d be needy, selfish, costly and ungrateful. Nothing is ever good enough. I get the brunt of the bad moods, the hateful words and the cold shoulders. Had I known how hard this was going to be and the sacrifices I’d have to make, I would have said no. If I had any idea that I’d love them so much that their pain is my pain, I would have said no. -- ANONYMOUS IN TEXAS DEAR ABBY: My answer is an emphatic NO! I love my son and care for my stepchildren, but for the few joys that I have received it wasn’t worth the heartaches. I have spoken to many parents about this. They all seem to feel the same. These adult children have a sense of entitlement and no respect. Frankly, I should have raised dogs!!! -NO NAME IN GEORGIA DEAR ABBY: Would I have children again? Absolutely, every one of them from my first, who is a special needs child who may never be able to live independently, to the youngest, who was only 4 when his dad left. The only change I’d make is I would have them with someone other than their dad, who just wasn’t up to the job of being a parent. -- WISER NOW IN MINNESOTA

Gorham girls fall to Lisbon and Littleton –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

LISBON/LITTLETON-- The Gorham girl’s soccer team had a tough go on the road recently, dropping two games to Lisbon 3-1 and top ranked Littleton 8-1 in Division IV girl’s soccer. The two losses left the locals at 4-7 on the season. “The Lisbon game was one we could have won,” said Gorham coach Jeff Stewart. “However a bad bounce here and a missed shot there and the game switched momentum.” The goals were scored by Lisbon’s Tori Rosebush at 19:33 and Jillian Fifield at 12:12 of the first half for a 2-0 lead. The Panther’s Calsea Bryer scored with 28:53 to play in the second half. Gorham did get one back from their top goal getter. Lily Kennan scored her tenth of the year at 39:30, to make the final score 3-1. The Panthers finished with 16 shots, their keeper had six saves, and the Lisbon Ladies had seven corners. The Huskies managed eight shots, had six saves and just one corner. The Littleton game was a contest that found a

Gorham team with some injuries against the Crusaders that are preparing for a title run. Senior Juila Winn scored an amazing six goals coming at 3:55, 14:38, 18:18, of the first half and another three at 2:58, 7:04, 11:37 of the second half. Teammate Aimee Hastings netted the other two at 22:01 and 37:00. Huskie sophomore Lily Keenan had the lone Gorham goal at 21:18 to make the final 8-1. The goal was Keenan’s eleventh of the Fall. For the game, Littleton took 11 shots, made three saves, and had two corners. The traveling Gorham girls took six shots, had a total of eight saves, and managed a pair of corner kicks. “Littleton game was a game of frustration,” said Stewart. “The team is going through a phase where most of the girls are not use to and that’s not being successful. We have to learn to stay strong as a “team” and we started working on that today with a very good practice.” The Lady Huskies return to Gorham for a game against Groveton at the Gorham Common on Wednesday.

Dr. William Pfeffer, Jr.

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– OBITUARY ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

RANDOLPH -- Dr. William Pfeffer, Jr. of Randolph, NH, died September 25, 2011. Born April 25, 1921 to William Pfeffer, Sr., and Dorothy (Thomas) Pfeffer in Millburn, NJ, Dr. Pfeffer married Jean Wilkinson in 1943. He was a graduate of Millburn High School, Columbia University (’42) and Harvard Medical School (’44) and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society in 1944. While in medical school he served in the US Army and then completed his internship and residency at Children’s Hospital, Boston, Mass. Dr. Pfeffer was one of the early practicing authorities in pediatric exchange transfusions and one of the first to recognize maple syrup urine disease, a genetic metabolic disorder. He went into private practice as a pediatrician in Wellesley, MA in 1952, caring for patients from infancy into their young adult years. For over 30 years he was the consulting pediatrician to the Children’s Mission (Parents’ and Children’s Services), where he provided care to children at risk. In 1985 Bill and Jean retired to their long-time summer home in Randolph, NH. Here he participated in the community in a variety of ways, serving on the board of the Randolph Mountain Club, as President of the Board of the Mt. Crescent Water Company and photographically documenting the lives and events of fellow Randolphians. Following Jean’s death, Dr. Pfeffer married Angela Chakalis in 2001. With Angela, Bill continued to have an active role in the Randolph community. A man of many talents, Dr. Pfeffer was a skilled photographer, watercolor artist, writer, and musician. For more than 60 years he created the Pfeffers’ Christmas

cards using original block prints and photographs; he was also a woodworker, and built his own Zuckerman harpsichord. In 1999 he founded the Randolph Art Show and served as curator and organizer for eleven years; in July 2011, the community honored Bill for this contribution to Randolph traditions. Dr. Pfeffer is survived by his wife Angela Chakalis-Pfeffer, son Dr.William Tad Pfeffer (Dr. Anne) of Nederland, CO, and daughter Jane (Mrs. George) Jerry of Highlands, NC; grandchildren William Bernard Pfeffer and Jenny Elizabeth Pfeffer; niece Debby Hoyt and grandniece Meghann Hoyt. The family is deeply grateful for the loving care Dr. Pfeffer received from Dr. John McDowell Dr. William Pfeffer, Jr. and the staff of the Coos County Family Health Services, the North Country Angels, and the Androscoggin Valley Hospital Home Health and Hospice. A Memorial Service will be held in the summer of 2012. In lieu of flowers Dr. Pfeffer’s family suggests that contributions be sent to the Benevolence Fund, Randolph Church, c/o Mrs. Mark Kelley, 98 Randolph Hill Road, Randolph, New Hampshire 03593. The Bryant Funeral Home, Gorham, NH is in charge of the arrangements. www.bryantfuneralhome.net.

Berlin native and his Boston band land a role in a brand new film BY JODY HOULE THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- Shawn Marquis, a Berlin native and 1992 graduate of BHS, landed a small role in a 2011 movie, “What’s Your Number?” He and his Boston, Mass., based band, Circle Circle Star, are in a scene at the end of the movie playing the part of the live band. The movie was released in North America on Friday, September 30. The 20th Century Fox Film starring cast is Chris Evans (Captain America), Anna Faris (Scary Movie), Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live) and Thomas Lennon (“Officer Dangle” from Reno 911), and is directed by Mark Mylod (director of the “Entourage” series on HBO). The film is now playing at Mountain Valley Mall Cinema 7 in North Conway and Lincoln Cinema. Marquis’s band is in the last, big scene of the movie acting as the band of the

lead character, Chris Evans. The members of Circle Circle Star, Marquis on drums, Jon Bistline on bass guitar, and Eliot Hunt on guitar, are non-speaking primary actors, not movie extras, whose names appear in the credits. Last June, the band scenes for the film were shot in a park in Boston. “It seemed a little too crazy to believe, and I think it wasn’t until we were actually in costume and on the set that we thought it was really going to happen,” said Marquis. “It was a night scene so we would get on the set around 4 p.m., get into costume, have some dinner, and then film all night until 5 a.m. in the morning,” he continued. Circle Circle Star is a relatively new band who released their first record last year. Marquis’ friend who is connected to film making recommended his band for the film. “My friend gave the music director pictures of three different bands, one of

which was ours, and our pictures won out. We met with the director, Mark

Mylod, in a recording studio near Boston, where we met the stars of the film and talked about the parts.” After graduating from BHS is 1992, Marquis, the son of Reggie and Tina Marquis, worked at Smith & Town for a year, then moved to Boston in 1993 and has been there since. His previous band, Chauncey, toured through a good part of the eastern United States, with highlight performances taking place at the Michigan State Theater, Irving Plaza in NYC, and the Fleet Boston Pavilion. The group toured with acts such as Guster and Midnight Oil, and shared bills with rock legends like Aerosmith and Cheap Trick. At the turn of the millennium, he participated in two Guitar Craft courses presented by his long-time musical hero, Robert Fripp, and also recorded an album with engineering whiz, Steve Albini (Nirvana, Page & Plant, PJ Harvey).
