BERLIN -- The 25 cent tax decrease the city council projected when it passed the fiscal 2012 budget in June is in jeopardy. With the city set to meet with the state Department of Revenue Administration in the next week or so, City Manager Patrick MacQueen updated the council Monday night on the latest figures.
The council in June projected a tax rate of $31.45, 25 cents less than the current rate of $31.70. But MacQueen said the city’s overall valuation has decreased by $10 million - $3.3 million in utility values and the remaining $6.7 million came from a drop in residential properties. That added 64 cents to the tax rate. The city’s share of the county tax came see TAX page 8
City to purchase land back from Clean Power BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN -- The city will repurchase the 11.5 acres of land it sold to Clean Power Development in the fall of 2009. Clean Power hoped to construct a 29-megawatt biomass
plant on the property, which is near the city’s wastewater treatment plant, but has since abandoned the project. City Manager Patrick MacQueen said when the city sold the land to Clean Power, see CITY page 10
Letter asks Ayotte to reconsider stand on prison bill ANDROSCOGGIN VALLEY -- Twentytwo local officials have signed a letter to U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte, R-NH, asking her to reconsider her recent vote against an appro-

for local towns BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
CONCORD — Tax rates are a mixed bag of increases across the smaller towns in the Androscoggin Valley this year. While Shelburne and Randolph saw changes of around 30 cents in their tax rate over 2010, Dummer’s rate increased $1.51 and Milan saw a jump of an even $2. All four towns are organized under SAU 20, and education costs comprised the bulk of the changes in Milan and Dummer while Shelburne’s lesser increase stemmed primarily from the county tax and Randolph’s town rate and state education contribution added to their taxes. With spikes in the local school and county portions of the 2011 rate Milan’s overall rate of $15.59 per thousand dollars of assessed value in 2010, is up to $17.59. The county rate is up 56 cents to $4.04, while the local school rate is up $1.96 to $8.65. The town piece of the rate fell 38 cents to see RATES page 7

‘Bigfoot’ goes to court CONCORD (WMUR) — An amateur filmmaker dressed as Bigfoot made his case before the state Supreme Court on Thursday that his First Amendment rights were violated two years ago. Jonathan Doyle and some friends were trying to film a movie at Mount Monadnock State Park in 2009, but he was stopped when officials said he didn’t have a permit or post an insurance bond. “This is classic First Amendment activity,” said Barbara Keshen of the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union. When he was stopped by a state park manager, Doyle was told he needed to get a permit 30 days in advance and post a $2 million bond before filming. “Not only did Mr. Doyle not ever apply for a special use permit, he never asked what the requirements were, never went to get an insurance quote, never asked for a waiver of any of the requirements,” said Matt Mavrogeorge of the Attorney General’s Office. Making amateur movies is a hobby for Doyle, who said he has made similar movies before on the mountain and never had to pay any fees. His attorney said that it wasn’t until a local newspaper wrote about his upcoming film shoot that the state took notice.

U.S. delays pipeline decision until after election WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The Obama administration on Thursday said it was delaying a decision on the contested Keystone XL pipeline while it studies an alternate route through Nebraska, effectively pushing any action well past the 2012 election and into 2013. The State Department, which announced the decision, has been reviewing the proposed project since
2008 to determine whether it is in the national interest. “As a result of this process, particularly given the concentration of concerns regarding the environmental sensitivities of the current proposed route through the Sandhills area of Nebraska, the department has determined it needs to undertake an in-depth assessment of potential alternative routes in Nebraska,” the
A shaken Italy is poised to name a new government ROME (NY Times) — Italy pulled back from the brink on Thursday, as lawmakers seemed poised to usher out Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and replace his government with a cabinet of technocrats most likely led by a former European Commissioner, Mario Monti. A day after Italian bond yields hit 7.4 percent, raising fears of an Italian default that could tear apart the euro zone and threaten the global economy, market pressure on Italy eased as it became apparent there was a break in the
political impasse over the postBerlusconi era. The once-unstoppable Berlusconi had pledged to step down as soon as the Italian Parliament passed austerity measures demanded by the European Union. But until Thursday the timetable was unclear, and it seemed that Berlusconi was hoping to buy himself more time in power. But now, with the Senate expected to approve the measures on Friday and the Lower House on Saturday, Berlusconi is expected to step down by Monday.

department said in a statement Thursday. The proposed project by a Canadian pipeline company had put President Obama in a political vise, squeezed between the demand for secure energy sources and the thousands of jobs the project will bring, and the loud opposition of environmental advocates who have threatened to withhold electoral support next year if he approves it.
Penn State students, police clash in unrest after announcement
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (NY Times) — After top Penn State officials announced that they had fired Joe Paterno on Wednesday night, thousands of students stormed the downtown area to display their anger and frustration, chanting the former coach’s name, tearing down light poles and overturning a television news van parked along College Avenue. The demonstrators congregated outside Penn State’s administration building before stampeding into the tight grid of downtown streets. They turned their ire on a news van, a symbolic gesture that expressed a view held by many: that the news media had exaggerated Paterno’s role in the scandal surrounding accusations that a former assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky, sexually assaulted young boys. “I think the point people are trying to make is the media is responsible for JoePa going down,” said a freshman, Mike Clark, adding he believed that Paterno met his legal and moral responsibilities by telling university authorities about an accusation that Sandusky assaulted a boy in a university shower in 2002.

Deerfield man accused of killing sister at his home DEERFIELD — A Deerfield man has been accused of killing his sister at his home. Jeffrey Cook, 55, was arraigned Thursday on a charge of seconddegree murder. Prosecutors said he killed his sister, Sandra Griffin, 58, by striking her in the head several times. On Thursday morning, a home at 88 Ridge Road in Deerfield remained taped off, and a police cruiser was parked outside the driveway. The attorney general’s office said that shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday, someone called police. “The police were initially called to the residence, not via a 911 call, but via a call to the police station,” said Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young. Young didn’t say whether the call came from the home, but when police arrived, they discovered Griffin. Young said Griffin was visiting from North Carolina. “As a result, early this morning,
Jeffrey Cook was arrested on two counts of second-degree murder, with alternative theories of reckless and knowing,” Young said. According to neighbors, Cook lived at the house with his wife and sons. But one neighbor said the sons are in their 20s and might have moved out. Neighbor Mark Dallaire, who said he has known Cook for years, said he couldn’t believe it when he heard the news that Cook was charged with second-degree murder. “Not Jeff,” Dallaire said. “Jeff’s the nicest guy in the world. I would have trusted him with my kids. I did. I played softball for years with him, and he’s just a super nice guy. The whole situation is very, very sad.” Young said police were interviewing a number of witnesses, but she wouldn’t say how many people were at the house. An autopsy on Griffin is scheduled for Friday. Cook is being held without bail. —Courtesy of WMUR

November 11, A Good Time To Remind Each Other That This Is A Special Day To Honor Our Veterans This day, November 11, take a moment to set aside some time to honor our veterans in some way, big or small. Our country’s soldiers “our soldiers” have put time aside to ensure our safety, our freedom, our country, and our way of life. They have put their lives on hold and at times, in danger. This day is a day for the citizens of the US to honor all our soldiers. What exactly can we do to honor our soldiers? Shake a soldier’s hand, give a soldier a call, buy a soldier a cup of coffee, participate in a Veteran’s Day ceremony, say “Thank you” to a soldier. This simple gesture can make a real difference to a veteran. Our veteran’s (retired and active duty) may be surprised by this outpouring gesture of appreciation. Our soldiers deserve, at the least, this gesture of gratitude from all US citizens. They deserve our time and positive energy. Some businesses give their employees this day off, as a gesture of gratitude towards
our soldiers. Those of you who have this day off please use this time to remember our Veteran’s. Many businesses cannot give this day off (for various reasons). I challenge these employers to honor the veteran’s within. Find some way to honor your veteran employees’ (a hand shake, a coffee, a lunch, a poster, an early day, or something else). Veteran’s Day has been created to remind the citizens of the United States to honor our veterans. With the busy lives we lead, this day can sometimes be overlooked. Please, do not overlook this day this year! Take some extra time to make this day special in some way for a veteran, or several veterans. You may know a veteran personally, that you can positively affect their life, or you can contact a local agency that may be able to help you find a Veteran. I hope the veteran’s of our little community are pleasantly surprised with greetings on this special day set aside for see HONOR page 5

Journey To Kenya
By the time you read this, Barrie and I will have returned from our 10-day trek to Kenya. Journeying to Africa has long fired the imagination of this now 76-year old man. He remembers how captivated as a young lad he was by the books he read and the movies he saw that were set in some part of the African continent. He remembers being thrilled by the adventure tales of Edgar Rice Burroughs and H. Rider Haggard. Later, as a student in high school and, later, college, he read far more serious works, such as Alan Paton’s “Cry, the Beloved Country” and Robert Ruark’s “Something of Value,” which contains an African proverb that has informed his life ever since. He remembers, too, sitting in a darkened movie house each week anxiously waiting to find out what would happen to the daring jungle queens, those fiery heroines of the improbable adventures that made-up the cliff-hanging serials of the 1940s. How many of you remember Nyoka, Tiger Woman, Jungle Girl, and Sheena? There were feature length films, too, such as “King Solomon’s Mines” and “She.” And. of course, the thoughtprovoking screen versions of the two serious books mentioned above. Always, though, there were the animals, those wild and free roaming jungle beasts that so captured a young lad’s imagination. Oh, to see them in their native habitats! And now, decades later, I will have had the chance to see the land, and its people, and its animals up close and personal. We will have had the opportunity to visit the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Jane Goodall’s Chimpanzee Sanctuary, to witness a couple of wild game drives, watch colubus monkeys frolicking in the trees, and
visit the Masai Mara, home of the country’s Big Five, the largest and most dangerous of Kenya’s wild animals that most visitors come to see. Barrie and I hope to have seen the African Elephant, the Black Rhinoceros, the Cape Buffalo, and, of course, the Lion and the Leopard. We have been told that our guides make every effort to get us as up close to these animals as prudence permits. I have bought and have been practicing with a long lens in hope of coming home with a trophy picture that will adorn a place on my office wall. For some months now, I have been visiting a website called “Africam,” a site that has continually running cameras set up around different watering holes in Africa. The animals do not always reward the viewer by making an appearance, but on occasion they do. My favorite so far has been watching a giraffe lowering its long neck down enough to be able to enjoy a drink. They do so more gracefully than one may think. On our journey, there will also have been an opportunity to visit a Masai village and meet some of the native people of Kenya. A simple people they may be, but they are sophisticated enough to expect a dollar or two in return for allowing you to take their picture, so we have been told. So our days certainly will have been filled with a variety of once-in-a-lifetime adventures, much more that I have recounted here. And by the time you read this, we will be back in Milan, and I will be writing articles and sorting out pictures. Maybe I’ll even be lucky enough to have gotten one of a great granddaughter of Nyoka’s swinging from vine to vine in the treetops high above. Sure.
Government has two sets of rules, one for the wealthy, one for the poor To the editor: Some people in America get special treatment and some don’t. Our government has two sets of rules, one for the wealthy and one for the poor. Oil companies have and continue to make trillions of dollars. CEO’S of the top five oil companies make an average of 14.5 million dollars a year. One of their head honchos retired three years ago with a 450 million dollar retirement fund. The price of gas, not counting oil, has gone up 250 percent in the last seven years. Plus, they are subsidized by the government. New Hampshire will be allotted, this winter, 14.7 million to help family’s pay for oil because oil prices are too high for people to pay for it, themselves. Plus, I’ll bet it won’t be enough. Take in all fifty states with some most likely getting more and that is a lot of money to give to the shady and greedy fat cat oil companies. Forcing tough economic times on people to make yourself multi-millionaires should be a criminal offense. Oil companies have taken this country hostage and it’s more than time to do something about it. Social Security recipients, on the other hand, haven’t gotten a raise in two years and now finally they are giving us a raise of 3.6 percent. The House of Representatives in session today passed a bill to give veterans a 3.6 percent pay raise. For me it amounts to 28 dollars a month, enough to buy a half a tank of gas. I’m really elated about that. Plus, the cost of groceries and everything
else has gone up because of the outrageous price of gas raising shipping costs. It has even driven companies out of business. Greed shouldn’t be rewarded. Millionaires don’t need to be subsidized. Wall Street has been subsidized to the tune of 700 billion dollars. Fanny Mae and Whatever were subsidized to the tune of 170 billion. They just gave their ten CEO”S 10 million each. The list goes on to infinity the breaks this country gives to billionaires. Politicians make sure they are well paid. We have homeless people in this country without two coins to rub together. What kind of aid do they get. How about subsidizing the poor in this country for a while so they can live a decent life and partake of the fruits of this nation instead of just being surrounded by them. People besides the oil companies and the wealthy need to live and not just exist, too. So get with it Congress and Mr. President and not just look after yourselves and the rich. Back to the subject of gas prices. Obama was supposed to watch the pumps. Watching them is good, doing something about it would be better. I couldn’t even afford to take my winter tires off last spring. My car is a 1996 and I will never be able to afford to get another one while I ride by thousands of them sitting besides the road in auto dealerships. One way to look at it is when my car is no longer fit to drive I won’t have to buy any more gas. I’m sure I’ll manage. I’ll be on my feet, and the greedy oil see RULES page 5

LETTER from page one
Grenier and a majority of the city council, Berlin City Manager Patrick MacQueen, Gorham Town Manager Robin Frost, all three Gorham selectmen, White Mountains Community College President Katharine Eneguess, and a majority of the Coos County delegation. Earlier this month, the U.S. Senate passed the Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill, which includes funding to open the Berlin prison. The bill passed the Senate on a 69-30 margin, with New Hampshire’s two U.S. Senators split on the bill. U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen voted in favor while Ayotte joined the minority voting against it. The bill is now in a joint conference committee to work out differences between House and Senate versions of the legislation. A compromise version would then go back to both bodies for a final vote. U.S. Congressman Charlie
Bass, (R-NH), said he intends to vote for the bill. In the letter to Ayotte, local officials cited the economic impact opening the prison will have on the North County. The letter noted the unemployment rate in Coos County is higher than the rest of the state and said the prison with its 330 jobs will give the regional economy “a much need booster shot”. The officials said support for opening the prison is strong and a cooperative effort is underway to prepare local workers and businesses to compete for jobs and to provide good and services to the prison. The letter also argued the prison is needed to relieve overcrowding in the federal prison system and as such is vital for public safety. “Your vote against this vital public safety and economic development project was alarming to many of us in the North Country,” the letter said.
It concluded by asking Ayotte to reconsider her position on the bill. In a guest column Ayotte wrote for ‘The Berlin Daily Sun’, she said she supports opening the Berlin prison and has fought to get it operating. She said she agrees that it makes no sense
to build a prison and not staff it. But she said she could not support the Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill because it contained what she felt was a lot of money “for wasteful and duplicative programs”.

$2.64 and the amount owed to state education fell 14 cents to $2.26. Shelburne saw the smallest increase of 27 cents on their tax rate. This year’s tax rate of $14.50, includes $3.24 for the town budget, $5.36 for the local school portion, $2.17 to the state for education, and $3.73 to the county. While the local combined dollars required for education dropped 56 cents between the local and state portions from last year, a 65 cent increase in the rate going to administer the county and an additional 18 cents to the town accounted for the uptick. Randolph also saw an increase in the overall tax rate. The 2010 rate of $14.59 per thousand dollars of assessed value, went up 32 cents to $14.91 this year. Randolph’s town,
state education and county portions of the overall rate rose, but a 61 cent decrease in the local school rate and countered the combined increase of 93 cents. In Dummer, the amount of the bill to administer the town saw the only decrease. The town tax rate fell 42 cents from $4.12 per thousand in 2010 to $3.70 in 2011.

The county bill rounded out the increase at 43 cents, bringing that portion of the bill this year to $3.70 per thousand.

in $250,000 higher than projected in June, adding another 57 cents to the tax rate. In total, those two changes added $1.21 to the tax rate, bringing it up to $32.66. On the other side of the ledger, the city will receive $250,000 this tax year from the payment in lieu of taxes negotiated with the Berlin Station for the biomass plant. It will also pick up $150,000 from money the city will receive from Cate Street Capital a part of the stipulations negotiated for the biomass plant. Those two items bring the projected tax rate down to $31.74 - about even with the current tax rate. MacQueen said the city will need to either cut or find additional revenues of about $130,000 if it wants to hold to the $31.45 tax rate and the 25 cent tax cut. Mayor Paul Grenier asked MacQueen if he had reviewed revenues, especially school revenues, to see if there are figures that are lower than they should be. Councilor Mike Rozek said the public is expecting a 25 cent decrease and the council should make reductions or adjustments to keep that commitment if possible. Grenier asked about taking the $130,000 out of the undesignated fund balance. MacQueen said the city has already taken more out of that account that it has in the past. He said the final tax rate will be set by DRA. Grenier said the city is not far off from the $31.45 tax increase and said he would like to see if the city could meet it.

it retained the right to repurchase the property for the same price if it had not been developed by the end of this year. He said the city has notified Clean Power that it intents to exercise that option. MacQueen asked the council to authorize the repurchase for the $50,000 purchase price plus closing costs. He said the cost will be charged to the sewer fund budget which received the proceeds from the sale. The city manager noted the city was not enthusiastic about selling the land because it is part of the treatment plant property but did so because it supported the biomass plant project. “We sold this piece with great hesitation,” he said. Councilor Roland Theberge questioned the current ownership of the
parcel, saying he thought Clean Power had been bought out by Gestamp Corporation. MacQueen said the city is repurchasing it from Clean Power/ Gestamp Corporation. The council approved the repurchase. In other business: * The council held a first reading on an application to the federal Environmental Protection Agency for a $200,000 Brownfields Clean-up Grant. If approved, the money would be used to clean up a 4.7 acre parcel of land the city owns behind the new state District Court building on upper Main Street. The parcel, which fronts the Androscoggin River, was formerly owned by the mill and in the past was used to store transformers, coal storage, and contained some underground tanks. A $40,000 local match would be
required which City Manager Patrick MacQueen said would come from the city’s Housing Initiative grant. City Planner Pamela Laflamme said the plan is to use the property for a Riverwalk. “We can’t do anything with it until it’s cleaned up,” she said. * The council also held a first reading on an application to the EPA for a $200,000 Brownsfield Communitywide Assessment Grant to conduct assessment studies of potentially contaminated properties. The assessments are required before any remediation can take place. MacQueen said some properties that might be targeted if the grant is approve include the former Bass Shoe building, the Cote Block, Dummer Yard, and the city-owned courthouse. * The council approved donating
$4,000 to the Berlin Main Street Program to pay for fireworks for the Parade of Lights celebration. Mayor Paul Grenier said he understood the program did not have funds to pay for the firework display that usually follows the downtown parade. He suggested the council donate $2,000 from its contingency fund to allow the fireworks display to take place. Councilor Lucie Remillard said the Parade of Lights is a wonderful event for citizens and recommended the council fund $4,000 to cover the entire cost. Councilor Tom McCue, who serves on the Main Street board, said the $4,000 donation would be a huge help and would provide a nice show. The council unanimously approved the appropriation. * City Manager Patrick MacQueen see CITY page 11

distributed his 20132018 Capital Improvement Plan for the city. MacQueen explained that the plan sets priorities for capital projects over the next six years. He said he tries to identify about $2 million worth of projects each year. “We often don’t fulfill the CIP,” said MacQueen, noting that this year the city funded less than $500,000 in capital projects. Still, MacQueen argued the CIP is a worthwhile activity because it set priorities for the city should funding become available. MacQueen walked the council through the fiscal year 2013 projects which range from sidewalk replacement and street rehabilitation to new police cruisers and continuing the housing initiative. The CIP was first presented to the planning board which approved it earlier this month. * The council had its first reading of a resolution that would establish a fire lane on both sides of Francis Street, from 38 Demers Street to the top of the street. Parking is not allowed in fire lanes. The action is in response to a resident complaint about vehicles parking on the street. * City Manager Patrick MacQueen reported city officials have been meeting over the past few weeks with engineers for Burgess BioPower about handling storm water from the site as well as groundwater from excavations. He said fire department officials and city inspectors are working with the biomass contractor on permits for the construction of an assembly building for construction workers inside the large brick warehouse.

By Holiday Mathis asked to use the ability to help others. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You wonder about the next step, while your counterpart thinks only about what is going on right now. That dynamic is maddening to you sometimes, but it’s precisely what makes you an excellent team. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re kind to those you like, and you’re kind to their friends and family, as well. That’s the part that will ensure you a place in the inner circle. You’ll enjoy the bonds you build over the weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There is greater harmony in your world. It starts with a peaceful feeling in your own mind and heart. Then you’ll notice that those who used to argue often will suddenly get along, and maybe you are the reason. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You know what you admire about a loved one, though you haven’t had the right moment to share this information in a while. Make that moment happen today. Your loved one really needs to hear what you have to say. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re like a sailor of unpredictable waters. You go boldly forward, knowing all the while that you’re at the whim of the mighty elements. The best you can do is to beg the favor of the fickle sea. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 11). Your fetching ways will make people feel good around you. You’ll accept a proposal in January. Relationships develop quickly. You’ll be sharing major news about your personal life with family in February. A change to your home or transportation happens in March. June brings a professional high. Aries and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 2, 39, 10 and 17.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you’re going to admire someone, make it a hero worthy of your attention. Just because a person is a celebrity doesn’t mean he or she is a hero. Be careful not to confuse the two. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll get intuitive flashes in the form of images that flicker across the screen of your mind. Write down your impressions without trying to categorize them or assign meaning. You’ll know what it all means in about a month. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll revisit a place you’ve enjoyed in the past and find that it’s difficult to get as excited as you once were over this scene. This is not a sign that it’s time to move on; it’s a sign that it’s time to shake things up. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve recently overcome a problem, and you can now help others do the same. Review your path. Write down what you know. It may not seem like a big deal to you now, but you will be of great assistance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It feels good to be generous, so you are. You’re not expecting to be praised for a contribution, and it may even embarrass you if someone draws attention to what you’ve given. You want to be as anonymous as possible. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You dive into social situations willing to connect, even though you have no idea what you’re going to say. You trust yourself to come up with the words that will help, encourage and motivate others. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re a gifted communicator who can state the truth in a way that doesn’t hurt anyone’s feelings. Because you can do this so consistently and well, you’ll be

VACATION CARETAKER LEAVES HER NEIGHBORS’ HOME OPEN TO THEFT
DEAR ABBY: Before we went on vacation, we trusted our 15-year-old neighbor “Mia” to feed our cat, take in the mail and water the plants. While we were away, she invited some of her friends and their friends to our home. Some of them she knew by their nicknames and only for a short time. When Mia’s parents learned about the party, they forbade her to go. However, she failed to mention she had left our door unlocked for strangers to enter. It was obvious when we returned that people had been there because things were out of place and garbage was left behind. We’re missing about $100 worth of beer and liquor, $50 in change and $150 in old coins. Mia claims she doesn’t know who was there, and her friends aren’t being honest. I’d like to get the police involved. Mia, her parents and my husband think I’m “unfair” for wanting to involve the police. I believe a crime has been committed and don’t understand why I’m being treated like the bad guy when I’m the victim. The police have told me Mia would not get into trouble as long as she cooperates. Am I overreacting? -- VIOLATED NEIGHBOR IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR VIOLATED: I don’t think so. The party animals who invaded your home are guilty of trespassing and theft. You should be compensated for anything that was taken and those responsible held accountable. Now that the “kids” have seen where everything of value in your house is located, you could be further victimized. You did the right thing in informing the police. DEAR ABBY: I am recently widowed. Men I work with and the husbands of some of my friends have been hitting on me. They’ll ask me out for a meal, give me big hugs -- and a couple of them have even kissed me on the mouth. I don’t lead them on, and besides, I’m a chubby greatgrandmother. What drives men to do this? Do they think
they’re “consoling” me? When these things happen, I act as if they never did and go on as usual because to do otherwise would be hurtful to their wives, who are my friends. These men don’t frighten me, but I don’t understand their motivation. Do you? -- GRANNY IN HER 70s DEAR GRANNY: There isn’t a blanket explanation for the behavior you have described. Some of your friends’ husbands may be trying to console you; others may have lecherous intentions. As to your male co-workers, big hugs and kisses are a no-no in the workplace and you should tell them so. If these incidents happen repeatedly with the same people, you WILL have to speak up and say they’re making you uncomfortable. And as to your friends’ husbands, try this: Stiff-arm them when you greet them with a sweet smile, then turn your cheek when you see them coming at you. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I are not religious. We believe that people are entitled to their own beliefs. My problem lies with my brother-in-law and his wife. They are two of the most judgmental, sanctimonious people I have ever known. They “hate” (their word) Mormons, Catholics, etc. How would you suggest I respond to their criticism of our “lack” of Christianity and their offers to pray for us? -- BITING MY TONGUE IN GREAT FALLS, MONT. DEAR BITING YOUR TONGUE: If your relatives are an example of people who practice Christianity, heaven help the rest of us. If you must interact with them, practice selective deafness, and when they spout hatred, excuse yourselves. DEAR VETERANS: I salute you for your service to this country. My thanks to each of you, as well as to the brave and dedicated men and women who are still on active duty. You are the personification of patriotism and self-sacrifice for your dedication to this country. -- ABBY

Berlin Sabres Squirts shuck the Oysters BERLIN--Last Saturday at the Notre Dame Arena, the Berlin Sabre’s squirt team won their home opener 7-5 against Oyster River, from Durham, NH. The first period started with Berlin taking charge of the game from the puck drop. Berlin struck first from a breakaway play from Ricky Lambert. Lambert skated past the Oyster River’s defense, faked a shot on net and back passed the puck to team mate Cameron Delisle. Delisle went top side to put the locals up 1-0. Berlin’s strong defensive play kept the visitors off the scoreboard. Halfway through the period, Dominic Paradis passed to Austin Scarinza, who then made a long pass to Lambert in stride. Lambert located his shot 5-hole for the 2-0 lead. Moments later, Scarinza scored a goal making it 3-0 on a assist from Trinity Gendron and Carter Richmond. Oyster River responded with two goals of their own to make it 3-2. With 18 seconds remaining in the first period, Berlin’s Delisle scored off a scramble in front of the Oyster
River net. Berlin goal tender Curtis Grover faced 12 shots to Oyster Rivers six. In the second period, Berlin took advantage on the power play as Sabre’s Broedy Gagnon lit the lamp, making it 5-2. Earning the assists were Tyler Rousseau and Scarinza. Oyster River answered back with a goal of their own, shortening the deficit to just two. Berlin’s Grover remained busy in goal blocking ten shots to the opponents three. The third period saw the Berlin Sabres back on their heels. Oyster River netted a quick goal at the beginning of the period off of a scramble in front of the net, making it 5-4. Berlin’s Delisle netted his third goal of the game, giving him a hattrick, on an assist from Haley Hamilton, and Scarinza. Oyster River then scored and it was right back to a one goal game. Berlin’s Rousseau scored to get the much needed insurance goal, making the final score 7-5. Andrew Martel and Trinity Gendron got the assists. Berlin’s Grover blocked an incredible 32 shots to Oyster Rivers 13.
Berlin’s 12U girl’s team begins season BERLIN -- The Berlin Sabres Girl’s 12U team began their season away at Cyclones Arena in Hudson October 29 The first period was scoreless as both teams worked the ice. In the second period the Lady Cyclones scored late in the period for the 1-0 lead. There was plenty of
action in front of each net. In the third period, Berlin returned the goal at 9:43. Emma Schoenbeck was assisted by Katherine Host tying the contest at 1-1. As the clock ticked down, both sides played good defense, ending the game in a 1-1 tie. see 12U page 17

Second annual Thanksgiving Harvest Soup Supper dinner in memory of Muriel Binette scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19
MILAN -- The second annual Thanksgiving Dinner in memory of Muriel Binette will be held on November 24, at 4 p.m. at Muriel’s Restaurant (MR’S Blueberry Heaven) Route 110 in Milan. This free dinner is for people who find themselves alone for the holiday. For the people that are down and out, lost their life’s partner, who have no family, those who are without a job and are finding it hard to
get together due to the expense. There will be 50 tickets available for a free dinner to the first 50 people who would like to join in the celebration in memory of Muriel Binette. Tickets can be picked up at Hot Bodz located at Winterland Marketplace on Main Street or at Coulombe Real Estate, or call 752-7535 or 752-6826 to arrange for pick-up elsewhere.
DUMMER--There is a chill in the air and frost on the ground and that means only one thing: it is time to celebrate the fall season with your friends and neighbors at the Ninth Annual Harvest Soup Supper. The event will be held Saturday, November 19, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Dummer Town Hall, 75 Hill Rd, Dummer. Join us for an evening of warm conversation over a bowl of hot, stick to your ribs, soup. We are hoping for a return appearance of the infamous
Partridge Stew and Martha’s “Chowdah” and Marcel’s vegetarian Mountain Bean Soup. Your tummy will be thanking you when you add a homemade roll or Sarah’s handcrafted bread to your dining pleasure and don’t forget the amazing array of desserts. This culinary experience is brought to you by the Friends of the Dummer Public Library who ask that in return a donation to be given at the door. For more information, contact the library at 449-0995.
For information regarding the theft of firearms that occurred 10/31/11 at Libby Street, Gorham location. Please call, 733-6200.
