Groundbreaking held for Burgess BioPower Cate Street Capital reports second company to locate on property BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- Proclaiming a new beginning for the city, officials yesterday broke ground for the $275 million Burgess BioPower biomass plant. Located on the grounds of the former pulp mill, the biomass plant is expected to help rebuild the region’s economy after the decline generated by the closing of the Berlin and Groveton mills. “It all starts today,” said Mayor Paul Grenier, serving as master of ceremonies for the occasion. “Watch out New Hampshire, Berlin is back,” he proclaimed. Gov. John Lynch said the plant will provide 40 full-time jobs as well as up to 400 indirect jobs in the logging and trucking industries along with economic benefits to local businesses. He said it will also help the state reach its renewable energy goals. “It means opportunity, not only for the people who live in Berlin but for generations to come,” said Lynch. Cate Street Capital President John Halle promised there is more to come, revealing that his company has reached a deal with another manufacturer to co-locate on the property. He said the company, which he described as a heavy industry, would share hot water, steam, and electricity generated by the biomass plant. He said a formal announcement will come in about two weeks, after a final agreement is reached and the company has an opportunity to notify the other six communities that were competing for it. Halle said the industry see GROUNDBREAKING page 5

Steve Jobs redefined digital age

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– DIGEST––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


(NY Times) — Steven P. Jobs, the visionary cofounder of Apple who helped usher in the era of personal computers and then led a cultural transformation in the way music, movies and mobile communications were experienced in the digital age, died Wednesday. He was 56. The death was announced by Apple, the company Jobs and his high school friend Stephen Wozniak started in 1976 in a suburban California garage. A friend of the family said the cause was complications of pancreatic cancer. Jobs had waged a long and public struggle with the disease, remaining the face of the company even as he underwent treatment, introducing new products for a global market in his trademark blue jeans even as he grew gaunt and frail. He underwent surgery in 2004, received a liver transplant in 2009 and took three medical leaves of absence as Apple’s chief executive before stepping down in August and turning over the helm to Timothy D. Cook, the chief operating officer. By then, having mastered digital technology and capitalized on his intuitive marketing sense, Mr. Jobs had largely come to define the personal computer industry and an array of digital consumer and entertainment businesses centered on the Internet. He had also become a very rich man, worth an estimated $8.3 billion.

Obama would accept surtax on incomes over $1 million

WASHINGTON (NY Times)— President Obama said on Thursday that he was “comfortable” with a Senate proposal to pay for his jobs legislation with a tax surcharge on income above $1 million. “I’m fine with the approach they have taken,” Obama said when asked at a news conference about the tax proposal put forth by Senate Democrats to

cover the $445 billion cost of a jobs proposal that the Senate is expected to take up soon. The bill would, among other features, seek to stimulate the economy by lowering payroll taxes on workers and employers. Obama, who previously had suggested paying for the jobs bill by limiting the value of deductions taken by households earning more than $250,000 a year,

said the alternative offered by Senate Democrats would also meet his objective of “asking millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share.” He said Congress would still have to make other changes to the tax code as part of a broader program to reduce the deficit over the next 10 years, in keeping with the debt agreement reached this summer.

BERLIN (NY Times) — The European Central Bank increased aid to cash-strapped financial institutions Thursday, but disappointed those expecting more drastic measures to combat slowing growth and address a deepening bank emergency. The E.C.B.’s restraint came in contrast to the action of the Bank of England, which announced another round of bond buying to support the slowing British economy. The pound fell against all major currencies after the announcement; the euro rose against the dollar. As a slump in German factory orders provided the latest sign of a looming recession, the E.C.B. left its benchmark rate unchanged, at 1.5 percent. The

Bank of England also left its main rate unchanged, at 0.5 percent. During his last news conference as E.C.B. president, Jean-Claude Trichet said that members of the central bank’s governing council had discussed a rate cut before concluding “by consensus” that inflation in the euro area — at 3 percent — was still too high. The statement, and a subdued assessment of the euro zone economy, suggested the bank will be open to cutting rates in coming months, as many analysts expect. Trichet said the central bank expected “very moderate” growth ahead in “an environment of particularly high uncertainty.”

NATO not ready to halt its Libya operations

BRUSSELS (NY Times) — NATO is not ready to halt its combat operations in Libya even though the war is winding down, the American defense secretary, Leon E. Panetta, said Thursday, pointing to prolonged fighting around the town of Surt, the birthplace of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. After two days of meetings, the consensus among NATO defense ministers is that a significant threat remains from forces loyal to Colonel Qaddafi, the ousted Libyan leader, and that civilians remain at risk, though the hope and expectation is that the military operations can end soon, a senior NATO diplomat said. Panetta said that NATO’s commanders would continue to analyze the security situation in Libya and recommend when the operations should end to political leaders, who have the final say. “It is very important that we make the right decisions,” Panetta said at a news conference. He laid out guidelines for ending NATO’s involvement, which was authorized by the United Nations Security Council to protect Libyan civilians.

Bruins alumni play local All Stars at Ham Arena Nov. 5 BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — On the eve of the Boston Bruins beginning defense of their Stanley Cup championship, Darrell Umlah, general manager of the Ham Ice Arena, announced the Boston Bruins Alumni have agreed to come to town to skate against a collection of local All Stars on Nov. 5. "I'm thrilled," Umlah said by phone Wednesday. "We had the Bruins Legends here the second year we were here in 1999 and then about six years later. Both times we packed the Ham, and the time is right for us to do it again. We're really looking forward to it." Umlah said Bruins from the mid 1960s to the early 1990s will take the ice at on Saturday, Nov. 5, at 6 p.m., squaring off against a collection of local coaches and volunteers who have helped the Ham Arena over the years. The roster for the Bruins is shaping up well. Umlah said the players for the game is still taking shape, but Bruins alumni include: Ray Bourque, defense, 22 NHL seasons, 20 with the Boston Bruins; Rick Middleton, forward, 14 years in NHL,12 with the Bruins; Terry O'Reilly, defense, 14 years with the Bruins; Ken Linseman, forward, NHL 13 seasons, five seasons with Boston; Don Marcotte, forward, 15 years with Boston; Ken Hodge, forward, 14 years in NHL, nine with the Bruins; Reggie Lemelin, goalie, 15 years in NHL, six years with Boston; Brad Park, defense, 17 years in NHL, N.Y. Rangers, Boston, Detroit and is in the Hockey Hall of Fame; Gary Doak, defense, 16 years NHL with Detroit, N.Y. Rangers, Vancouver and 11 with Boston; Andy Brickley, forward, 14 years professional hockey, 10 years with the Bruins and is currently the Bruins color commentator; Jay Miller, forward, seven NHL seasons, four with Boston; Don Sweeney, defense, 16 years in NHL,14 with the Bruins; Bob Beers, defense, eight years NHL; four with Boston and is now the color analyst Bruins radio; Bobby Miller, forward,UNH alumni, played four years with Boston and was on the 1976 Olympic team; and Lyndon

Byers, forward, 10 years NHL, nine with the Bruins. "It will be nice if we can get Ray Bourque here," Umlah said. "I don't know what his schedule is, but I know he'd be a definite fan favorite. "We're the first game of the season for the Bruins Legends," he added. "They are a bunch of guys who are familiar with the area who are looking forward to coming and playing." The puck will drop at 6 p.m. on Nov. 5 with doors opening at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children and free for any child currently enrolled in MWV Youth Hockey. Bruins Alumni will be on hand for photos and signing autographs before and after the game. "The players are really gracious with the fans," Umlah said. "I have to tell you the last time they were here I had a great experience hanging out beforehand with Terry O'Reilly, Ken Linesman and Don Awrey. Don Awrey has to be one of the nicest most unassuming persons you'll ever meet. You'd never guess he won the Stanley Cup twice." Umlah is still finalizing the MWV All Star roster for the game. "We'll have both men and women suiting up for the Valley All Stars," he said. "It's folks who are in the building a lot, that skate here a lot and give back as coaches and people who have dedicated their time and services. "We've never beaten the Alumni," Umlah continued. "We might be catching them at the right time, it being their first game of their season. Maybe they'll be rusty and the local All Stars can catch them at the right time." The Bruins beat the hometown skaters 10-2 (Peter Hall netted both goals for the hometown team) in 1999 on a night Umlah will never forget. "When I did the locker room assignments and wrote Boston Bruins on the door, I got chills," he said in 1999. "I never ever thought of things like this when we were hoping to have an indoor ice arena. It's amazing. Every one of these guys is my idol. I grew up worshipping these guys. I lived and died with the Bruins every game as a kid."

Man in the Mirror

The unlikely femme fatale from Jersey sashayed into a Trenton news conference and broke a lot of hearts. (Not Snooki’s or Barry’s, of course.) Watching Chris Christie hold forth for an hour, it’s hard to know whether you want to hug him or slap him. There’s something both lovable and irritating about the man. It’s not the puffed up body that’s off-putting. It’s the puffed up ego. He skipped the line that he was not ready to be president and made it clear that, oh, yeah, he’s tremendous and just the right guy to make sure Obama is “a one-termer,” but he can’t be in a romance with mooning Republicans and back-on-the-market independents just now. He’s still involved with his state — “New Jersey, whether you like it or not, you’re stuck with me” — and doesn’t want to be a dilettante quitter like Sarah Palin. The Uncontained Christie asserted that Contained Obama has “failed the leadership test.” But the feet-of-clay president benefits from Republican erotomania about the New Jersey governor; all that unfulfilled longing underscores the inadequacy of the G.O.P. field. Tuesday’s show was designed to be a humble bow off the larger stage for the large governor. But it bristled with his large ego. Asked about criticism that’s he’s too liberal for his party, he shot back: “That’s when I knew that I could actually win, when all these people started shooting at me before I even got in the race.” Some pundits and Obama advisers suggested that Christie’s weight made him undisciplined. But he was disciplined enough to resist the siren song of a premature presidential bid. “When you get in this whirlwind a little bit,” he said, you begin to “lose your bearings a little bit.” We’re fated to yearn for qualities in presidents that we found missing in the last one, so Americans are intrigued by unpolished, unvarnished, impolitic, knock-some-headstogether, passionate, chesty, even hefty. When Barack Obama burst onto the scene, his lithe frame signaled youth and energy and modernity. He seemed well-read and well-briefed, yet he traveled light, with an airy gait and a sleek look. He nibbled at food and drank Black Forest Berry Honest Tea, avoiding all the campaign junk the rest of us inhaled. But now his asceticism seems more like a reflection of his cherished membership in the technocratic priesthood — and an unnerving mirror of our starving economy.

He’s an egghead who surrounds himself with eggheads, even when they have helped wreck the economy he’s trying to save. Christie looks less interested in eggheads than eggs Benedict with a side of hash browns and bacon. The Republican’s girth seems reassuring in lean times. Studies have shown that during slumping economies, men may find plumper women more attractive. So why shouldn’t financially stressed voters find plumper pols more appealing? The message from new books by Ron Suskind and Jeffrey Sachs, and from the proliferating Wall Street protesters, seems to be that President Obama is a captive of the banks who pursued policies that helped the very richest people in the country. Americans who have been hurt want to identify the villains, and Obama is loath to target villains. Christie can be a bully, but that may seem better than the alternative: a president who lets himself be bullied, and who lets the bullies run wild. The Jersey governor loves to identify villains, from state legislators resisting his will (“drunks”) to teachers resisting a pay freeze (“using children for political purposes”) to pundits criticizing his weight (“just ignorant”). Like W., he teases reporters in a sort of humiliating way. When one reporter at Tuesday’s press conference said he wanted to ask a question on another topic, Christie did his lighthearted, pistol-whipping thing: “No, no, you screwed around, and now you’re out,” before returning to the reporter later. As Andrew Romano wrote in Newsweek last year, Christie’s background as a prosecutor instilled a Manichaean instinct: “Christie’s strategy is to use the power of the bully pulpit to make his opponents look foolish. They are the villains; he is the hero.” People are longing for a president who can understand their pain, mix it up and get action — not one who averts his gaze, avoids conflict, delegates to Congress, wastes time hunting for common ground, cedes the moon to opponents and fails to get anywhere. Our nuanced president sticks to gray, while the no-nonsense governor, as Joe Scarborough noted, “paints in primary colors.” Christie said he spent the weekend trying to “see whether I could look in the mirror and make that call.” Now that he has opted out, he says he’s going to “tear off the rearview mirror.” The same can’t be said for jilted, lovesick Republicans, scraping the bottom of the barrel and turning their lonely eyes to Eric Cantor.

would be operating within two years and create an additional 150 to 300 jobs. While yesterday was a day to celebrate with about 300 people turning out for the groundbreaking and barbecue, most of the speakers noted it had been a long and at times trying journey to bring the project to fruition. Halle said the company had to overcome many hurdles including budget increases, legal appeals. permitting, long delays, and even concern over Tropical Storm Irene. He said the toughest battle for him was the the Independent Power Producers’ decision to appeal the N.H. Public Utilities Commission’s order approving the power purchase agreement between Berlin Station and Public Service of N.H. He called the IPP action untimely. Grenier said he feared Cate Street Capital would not be able to keep its financing together while a solution was worked out to satisfy the IPPs. “I thought we were going to run out of time,” Grenier said. Halle credited Lynch with taking the lead and working out an agreement. N.H. Commissioner of Resources and Economic Development George Bald said Lynch’s leadership made the difference. State and local officials praised Halle and Cate Street Capital for staying with the project through the tough times. “There were many times they could have walked away from this project,” said Lynch. “But they stuck with it. They kept their commitment to Berlin and to the North Country.” Halle noted his French Canadian background and said the city, with its heavy French Canadian population struck a cord with him. He said many local people have thanked AWARDS from page 4

him for his efforts. “I’ve never been tied so personally to this project and this community,” he said. Halle and Bald also praised PSNH for sticking with the project. Bald said the utility realized the project would benefit North Country citizens. PSNH President Gary Long said the utility believes in green renewable power and also felt the North Country needed the economic boost the biomass plant would provide. The plant is expected to pump $25 million annually into the local economy. Grenier reminded the crowd that Cate Street Capital will pay the city a total of $34 million in fixed payments plus up to $10 million from the sale of renewable tax credits as payments in lieu of taxes over the 20-year term of the power contract. He said the plant will provide jobs for blue collar workers to help replace those lost when the mill closed. He said the head of the N.H. Building Trades union has agreed to hold a job fair in Berlin to recruit and train local people to work in the construction and trade industry. Halle said work will get underway this fall on the foundation for the turbine. Babcock & Wilcox Construction Company Inc., was awarded the contract to engineer, procure, and construct the 75-megawatt biomass plant. Over the winter, Halle said the focus will be on procurement and engineering. He said the construction push will get under next spring when hundreds will be employed on-site. Halle said the presence of the chemical recovery boiler will save about 18 months of construction time. The project is expected to generate power by late 2013. “Stay tuned,” Halle advised the gathering, “because we’re not done yet. presentation.

Trail work to begin in Gorham GORHAM -- The New Hampshire Division of Parks and Recreation’s Bureau of Trails, reports that construction of a new trail for snowmobiles and ATVs will begin this week in the northeast corner of the Gorham Town Forest. The trail was approved by the Town of Gorham earlier this summer. The project is part of a snowmobile trail improvement as well as an ATV loop opportunity into Gorham. The trail construction is to improve a 900’ section of former skid trail to an improved trail surface for year-round use. As part of this trail project the Bureau has designated 0.6 miles of the Presidential Rail Trail for summer ATV use; from the Route 2 parking area east over the high trestle to the rail corridor owned by Brookfield Power to provide access to the new trail. The 0.6 mile designation has been modified from the original proposal due to concerns raised at a public meeting in 2010. This modification was supported unanimously by the Gorham Selectboard at a noticed meeting in June. The Bureau anticipates construction of the improved trail, and signing upgrades on the recreational rail trail to be completed by early November.

PSU announces Coos County early childhood leadership cohort

PLYMOUTH, N.H.- The Early Childhood Studies program at Plymouth State University has selected five local students for the Coos County Early Childhood Leadership Cohort. The Cohort is one part of the Coos County Early Childhood Development Initiative, a multi-year, multi-partner, multi-million dollar collaborative effort funded by the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund of the NH Charitable Foundation. The overall goal of the Initiative is to improve the health, early care and education, and well-being of young children birth to age five and their families in Coos County. Dr. Mary Cornish, a PSU Education Professor, said the Cohort has the potential to develop future early childhood leaders in northern New Hampshire. “Our goal is for these students to become excellent early childhood teachers and leaders in Coos County,” said Cornish. “We are excited to work with such a promising group of future teachers.” Cohort members will complete a four-year degree in Early Childhood Studies at Plymouth State University

and participate in a variety of professional development experiences with colleagues in Coos County and statewide. Cohort members will receive full yearly tuition and fees for up to four years at Plymouth State, a personal stipend to cover books and other expenses, and financial support to attend state and national early childhood conferences and other professional development opportunities throughout their time at Plymouth State University. They have committed to working in the early childhood field in the North Country for at least two years after they graduate. In order to continue in the Early Childhood Leadership Cohort, students need to maintain good academic standing at PSU, maintain a professional portfolio, and participate in Cohort meetings and other events. Cohort students say the program not only helps them achieve their own goals, but helps the region they grew up in. “I know I can make a difference in the North Country with the information the Cohort is providing me,” said Samantha Hallee of Berlin. “I have

already learned so much. I knew from the beginning this is what I wanted to do, but I never would have imagined the options I have to research and look into.” Brooke Stevens of Colebrook adds, “I hope to make a difference in the lives of young children; the first few years of their life are so important and can affect them for a lifetime. I really want to make a positive impact

on the lives of young children in the North Country.” Amanda Pike of Gorham noted, “I hope to gain a lot of knowledge and experience from all the opportunities I am being provided with to make the North Country a better place for future generations.” The Coos County Early Childhood Leadership Cohort is part of see LEADERSHIP page 11

effort by Plymouth State’s Early Childhood Studies program to provide professional development and preparation for current and future early childhood teachers in the North Country. PSU Education Professor Dr. Patricia Cantor noted the teacher preparation efforts are based on solid research. “Young children benefit when their teachers have specialized preparation in early childhood education,” said Cantor. “The ideal is a bachelor’s degree in early childhood combined with experiences in high-quality early childhood settings. This is what we hope to provide for the students in the Leadership Cohort, through our degree in Early Childhood Studies and accompanying field experiences at the PSU Child Development and Family Center and child care programs in Coos County.” The Plymouth State University Early Childhood Leadership Cohort students are: Samantha Hallee (Berlin); Dana Lyons (Colebrook); Kelly Mason (Stratford); Amanda Pike (Gorham); and Brooke Stevens (Colebrook). All of the students have expressed their strong connection to Coos County and their commitment to building a future there.

By Holiday Mathis most of the day -- you’ll be a hit. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Though you are a bit cautious when it comes to new adventures, you will get involved in one and the results are beyond brilliant. Your surprise will equal your delight. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You relate everyday matters to largescale philosophical and political issues, and somehow this doesn’t come off as heavy handed at all. You’ll be light and lively as you inspire and educate others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your hunches will be either ridiculously off target or eerily correct. Either way, if you follow them, the day’s whimsy will be high entertainment for you and your loved ones. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one can convince you to move at a pace other than the rhythm of your own heart. You’ll make a personal commitment when you’re good and ready to do so, or not at all. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be full of both questions and answers. Once you form an opinion, though, you’ll convince yourself of it so thoroughly that it will only be one more step to convince someone else. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 7). You have an instant rapport with people this month. You’ll quickly bond with a group that hangs on your every word and gesture. And though it will be fun to be a star, you’ll also enjoy the escape to a new locale that comes in December. Family additions happen in May. There’s a competition in June, and you’ll take home a prize. Capricorn and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 2, 21 and 7.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will prefer to run the show. You would have made a gifted producer or director, and though today’s task will not be an entertainment vehicle for the masses, it still will be a masterpiece. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re a romantic at heart and have an idealism in matters of love that belies the down-to-earth pragmatism you display regarding almost everything else. You’ll be won over by a dewy show of affection. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are full of ideas, hardly a practical one in the bunch. That’s what will make you so mysterious and attractive, especially to people who are a little dry in the creativity department these days. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are protective and nurturing, and you’ll thrive when you know it’s up to you to take care of loved ones. Could they, in all actuality, care for themselves? Maybe so. But just for now, it’s nicer for both of you when you take over. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll have a laid-back attitude, letting relationships and business opportunities come to you instead of seeking them out. Because you’re not trying too hard, others will assume you already have what you need and want. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Those around you may view you as lucky. Actually, what they see is not luck, but a purposeful and practical sequence of the setting and acquisition of your goals. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your excellent sense of timing puts your audience in the palm of your hand. Though it probably will be a rather small audience -- fewer than three people for

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I have worked as a nanny for many years for a divorced professional woman. She has a son and a daughter. The son, now 15, is smoking pot. I told his mom, but she’s ignoring the problem. She said: “He’s just experimenting. I want him to get it out of his system before he enters college.” I love this child, and I feel helpless. He knows better. The boy used to be very honest, but that’s no longer the case. How can I help him when his mother isn’t making an effort? -- NANNY WHO CARES IN TEXAS DEAR NANNY: Your employer seems to be clueless. What makes her think her son will get into college if he’s spending his high school years stoned on weed? And for that matter, when he grows bored with grass, what makes her think he won’t go on to “experiment” with stronger illegal substances? Hiding her head in the sand is not the answer. Where is the boy’s father? If the mother isn’t up to the task of keeping her son on the straight and narrow, the father should be informed about what’s going on. DEAR ABBY: My mother and “Simon,” the man I consider my father, married when I was a toddler. Simon adopted me when I was in grade school. Most people believe he’s my natural father, including my siblings. (I have no contact with or memory of my biological father.) Last month at my brother’s wedding, a guest commented to Dad about how much we look alike. Simon responded with, “Well, that would be tough.” The guest replied, “Oh, she isn’t yours?” and he said no. I was extremely hurt by his response. This has left me wondering if he feels differently about me than my sisters and brothers. Nothing has been said since, and I feel I should let it go.

Should I say something to my dad or just chalk it up to a stressful day for all of us? -- FEELING EXCLUDED IN OHIO DEAR FEELING EXCLUDED: Chalk it up to thoughtlessness on Simon’s part. You became “his” when he adopted you. What he was focused on at the wedding was the question of biological relatedness, and I’m sure he didn’t mean to slight you. Because this has troubled you enough to write to me, discuss it with your father and tell him how it made you feel, and give him a chance to explain. DEAR ABBY: We have two sons, both married with children. Unfortunately, their wives don’t get along, which has resulted in strained family gatherings. There is now a tendency not to invite the “other” couple to family events. Our sons always got along with each other, but this has also strained their relationship. Any suggestions? Should we, as parents, get involved and talk to both couples at the same time? It is heartbreaking to see our sons and our grandchildren miss out on together time. -- SAD IN SYRACUSE DEAR SAD: Talk to your sons separately -- and then with their wives. Whatever has caused the tension between your daughters-in-law may take mediation to fix. You are right to be concerned, because if the cousins don’t grow up knowing each other, the breach in the branches of your family will be permanent. TO MY JEWISH READERS: Tonight at sundown, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish calendar, begins. It’s a day of fasting, reflection, prayer and repentance. To all of you, may your fast be an easy one.

Keenan’s five goals pushes Gorham past Groveton BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM-- Gorham sophomore Lily Keenan had her finest offensive day ever in a Huskie uniform scoring five times and leading her team to an 8-4 victory over the Groveton Purple Eagles in Gorham Wednesday. Keenan opened the scoring at 13:40 of the first half, after Groveton goaltender, Brooke Drouin, made a hand deflection off of a shot by Huskie Leslee Kenison for a 1-0 lead. Twenty six seconds later, Kenison fed Keenan in the box and the Huskie sniper made it a 2-0 contest. The visiting Eagles refused to go quietly and cut their deficit in half at 33:22. Jenna Wheelock scored from McKenna Burke from 10 yards out for a 2-1 score. Just 15 seconds later, a game changing individual effort by Kenison, put the Huskies back on top 3-1. Kenison dribbled right up the middle, pushing the ball between to Groveton defenders and then picking the far side of the goal and away from the charging goal tender for the 3-1 lead. The goal was Kenison’s sixth of the year. Four minutes later, it was the Kenison to Keenan show once again. This time Kenison set Keenan up dead center of the Groveton net just inside the penalty area. Keenan settled the pass and took the time to pick her spot for the 4-1 advantage at the intermission. It was Keenan’s third goal of the game and fourteenth of the Fall. The Eagles tried to respond and get themselves back into the game at 13:58 of the second half. Burke was set up by Wheelock to make it a 4-2 game. The Groveton girls seemed to be gaining some momentum, coming close to scoring on some shots that just missed the Huskie goal. That energy changed when the Huskies were

rewarded a direct kick just outside the penalty area. Junior captain Jessica Stewart blasted her shot into the goal to give Gorham their three goal edge back at 5-2. The goal was Stewart’s fourth of the season. The Purple Eagles’ Wheelock made it 5-3 with her second goal of the game on a direct kick from the center of the field just outside the box. However, any time Groveton scored, the Huskies responded. Keenan was at full stride when she took a perfect feed from Stewart. Keenan unloaded her shot to push the score to 6-3 in the home teams’ favor. Groveton was awarded a corner kick at 31:36 of the second half. Wheelock sent a perfect kick to the far side of the Huskie net. There, Eagle Talia Bedell was waiting and she deposited the one bouncer to get the Lady Eagles back to within two goals at 6-4. One minute later, Keenan notched her fifth goal of the game and sixteenth of the year to make it 7-4. The goal was set up by youngster Devon Cyr. The freshman Cyr was then awarded by her senior teammate Danika Gorham with just under two minutes to play. Gorham was on the left side and had an open shot on the Eagle goal. Instead, Gorham saw an open Cyr all alone in front, pushing the ball her way. That allowed Cyr to take the left footed shot and deposit into the lower corner for her first varsity goal and making it a final score of 8-4. The Huskies Have three games left, as they try to get back to the .500 mark. Gorham will be on the road at Colebrook and Lincoln, before returning home for senior day against the Woodsville Engineers.

Top ranked Newfound fights off Lady Mountaineers, 2-1 BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN-- The top ranked and undefeated Newfound Bears scored two first half goals and then held off a second half come back attempt by Berlin and went on to defeat the Lady Mountaineers 2-1 in a girl’s Division III game played in Berlin Wednesday. Newfound’s Alex Jewel scored both of her teams’ goals in the first half, scoring at 4:23 and 22:51 for a 2-0 lead. Both goals were unassisted and came off of rebounds after the initial saves were made by Berlin goal keeper Morgan Ouellet. That was all of the scoring in the first half. Both teams earned four corners each. Ouellet was the busier goal tender between the pipes making four saves while her counterpart from Newfound, Kaitlyn Welch, had two blocks on the Berlin shots. The Berlin coaching staff made some great adjustments at the intermission break. Just 6:28 into the second half, senior sniper Megan Hood fired

her shot past the Newfound goal keeper to cut the Berlin deficit to one at 2-1. The goal was set up by teammate Rita Thagourus and was Hood’s team leading fourteenth of the year. Unfortunately, the tying goal never materialized for the Mountaineers and the Bears kept their perfect record in tact. In the second half, both goalies made four saves each and both clubs added five more corners to their totals. The loss was just the second of the year for the Lady Mountaineers. The Berlin girls will travel to Bethlehem on Friday and to Gilford on Tuesday. The final home game of the year will be next Friday and be senior day. The Berlin girls will battle the Winnisquam Bears, a team that is sitting right behind the Berlin girls in the standings. The game just might be a decisive contest as to who hosts a quarterfinal game during the playoffs. NRHS 2 0-2 BHS 0 1-1 Scoring: NRHS- Jewel 2, BHSHood.
