Prison Warden Schult explains hiring process BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- With funding now approved to open the federal prison, the next question is when will the hiring get underway? Warden Debra Schult warned it will take several months before people see any real activity at the medium security prison. “It’s going to look like initially not much is happening,” she told members of the Northern N.H. Talent Team yesterday. Schult said the first positions will be filled internally, using experienced personnel already employed by the federal Bureau of Prisons. She said she has sent the paperwork to fill 22 positions, mostly

department heads, to the Bureau’s Grand Prairie Office Complex in Texas. The positions should show up on the usajobs.gov website next week where they will be posted for 15 days. The initial rating and ranking is done in Grand Prairie and then the list of qualified applicants is forwarded to Schult who makes recommendations to the regional office. Next week, Schult said she will forward the paperwork to Grand Prairie to hire five correctional officers. Once an applicant is approved, Schult said the person has up to 12 weeks to report for duty. That allows them time to move to Berlin. Given that timetable, she said it will be approximately March before staff starts reporting to Berlin. Local people interested in working at the prison,

however, should start checking the bureau’s web site because Schult said she expects the first posting for jobs that will be open to applicants outside the bureau will be mid-December. At that time, she said the bureau will be posting for some correctional officers, medical personnel, facilities positions such as maintenance, case workers, and secretaries. In total, Schult said the bureau will be hiring 333 people to work at the Berlin facility, with about 200 of that number expected to be new hirees. She said the bureau will not hire anyone over the age of 37 except for 12 positions that are exempt from the age limit. Schult said the exemptions include physician, dentist, chaplain, and nursing positions. The warden see WARDEN page 8

Couple receives Gus Rooney Award

Donnie and Kristy Labrecque, center with their two sons, were honored on Sunday at the Notre Dame Arena as the recipients of the 2011 Gus Rooney Volunteer of the Year award. Both Donnie and Kristy were nominated for their work in the Berlin-Gorham Cal Ripken baseball League and for their work in the Berlin Youth Hockey programs. There were many friends and relatives that were present for the award and the duo were quite surprised by their award. (JEAN LEBLANC PHOTO)

BERLIN — A Berlin couple who team up to cover both organizational responsibilities and one-on-one time with local young athletes has been recognized for their contributions. Donny and Kristy Labrecque have been jointly named the 2011 Gus Rooney Volunteer of the Year. In a press release issued by the Berlin Recreation and Parks Department, the extensive work the pair has undertaken in support of youth sports and activities was cited as the main reason for the award. “This couple, more like a team themselves, has organized and coached sports for nine years and counting,” it reads. Kristy was recognized for her behind the scenes com-

mittee and booster work as a member of the Berlin Youth Hockey Board, Team Mothers, Fund Raising Committee, and Learn to Skate Program as well as Youth Golf Committee, and multiple functions in the Cal Ripken Baseball organization. She has also served as scheduler, coordinator and sometimes press person for the Notre Dame Arena in addition to participating in the PTO at Brown School and volunteering at numerous school events. Her nomination for the award cited not only Kristy’s hockey, school and summer youth sports volunteerism, but also her devotion, hard work, and organizational skills.

Probable cause found in bank robbery case The Holiday Market is Dec. 3 BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN — After a Wednesday hearing in First Circuit Court, Berlin District Division, probable cause was found in the state’s case against accused bank robber Daniel Hufstetler. Hufstetler, 32, of 36 High Street, Berlin, is accused of robbing the Guardien Angel Credit Union at gunpoint on Nov. 14. Judge James Patten found probable cause to bind the charge of armed robbery against Hufstetler over to Coos Superior Court. Hufstetler’s accused accomplice, Sheena

Craig, 29, also of 36 High Street, Berlin, is charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery. She is believed to have driven the vehicle that bore Hufstetler from the scene of the crime. Craig waived a probable cause hearing on her charge. Craig remains free on $500 cash and $50,000 personal recognizance bail. Hufstetler, who has felony convictions for assault, burglary and theft in Georgia and Pennsylvania, is being held on $75,000 cash bail. Both cases will now be transferred to the office of the County Attorney for prosecution

Santas face gloomy economic times

MIDLAND, Mich. (NY Times) — Here, at the nation’s oldest, most celebrated, school for would-be Santa Clauses, much has stayed exactly the same over its nearly 75 years. A proper Claus ought to have pleasant breath, his beard curled just so and a hearty laugh. Yet this year, from the holiday parades, to the cheery carols piping from Main Street loudspeakers, to the “this way to Santa” lines at shopping centers, something more sobering has cast its shadow: the economic slump. The result is a Christmas season in which Santas — including the 115 of them in this year’s graduating class of the Charles W. Howard Santa Claus School — must learn to swiftly size up families’ financial circumstances, gently scale back children’s Christmas gift requests and even how to answer the wish some say they have been hearing with more frequency — “Can you bring my parent a job?” Santas here tell of children who appear on their laps with lists that include the latest, most expensive toys and their parents, standing off to the side, stealthily but imploringly shaking their heads no. “In the end, Santas have to be sure to never promise anything,” said Fred Honerkamp, an alumnus of the school who also lectures there.

Reports warn of rising risks from Europe’s debt PARIS (NY Times) — European leaders faced mounting pressure Monday to overcome divisions and move ahead quickly with new plans to prevent the euro zone from fracturing, as warnings multiplied that the crisis could endanger the global economy and cause credit to dry up in the banking system. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said Monday that the euro crisis remained “a key risk to the

world economy.” The research group, which is based in Paris, sharply cut its forecasts for wealthy Western countries and cautioned that growth in Europe could come to a standstill. The warning came just hours after Moody’s Investors Service issued its own bleak report on Europe’s sovereign debt crisis. Moody’s, a leading credit rating agency, warned that the problems could

A shopping day invented for the Web comes of age

I think we have to believe in things we don’t see.” —James Caan

(NY Times) — Cyber Monday might have started as a madeup occasion to give underdog e-commerce sites jealous of Black Friday a day of their own, but it has become an undeniably real thing — surprising even the people who invented it. Last year, for the first time, the Monday after Thanksgiving was the biggest online shopping day of the year by sales, and the first day ever that online spending passed $1 billion, according to comScore. This year, with a record-breaking Black Friday — shoppers

spent $816 million online, 26 percent more than last year, in addition to spending more offline — online retailers are gearing up for Monday to once again be their best of the season. Seventy-eight percent are offering promotions, according to Shop.org, an industry group. Almost half will offer discounts, while 38 percent will run limited-time flash sales and a third will have free shipping. “It’s going to be up there again, no doubt,” said Gian Fulgoni, chairman of comScore and an e-commerce expert.

CAIRO (NY Times) — Unexpectedly large crowds of voters turned out on Monday to cast their votes in Egypt’s first parliamentary election since the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak, a ballot that seemed to blend vindication of the democratic struggle with uncertainty over the revolution’s final outcome. By 9 a.m., voters had formed long and peaceful lines under the watchful eyes of a heavy police and army guard to cast votes in rich and poor neighborhoods across Cairo. In several places, lines stretched as long as a block along the banks of the Nile, and there were similar reports from Alexandria and Port Said. In Tahrir Square, the epicenter of Egypt’s democracy struggle, several thousand protesters maintained their 10-day occupation to press demands for the immediate end to military rule. At several polling stations around Cairo, voters reported delays of up to four hours because ballots or voter lists or even the supervising judges had not arrived on time. A news report said soldiers fired in the air in at least one of the capital’s slums to disperse an angry crowd trying to reach a polling station.

A message to the man who left my dog to die To the editor: Friday night, a white bearded man in a red Ford hit my dog. When he realized what he had done, he got out of the truck, looked at my dog and said “Oh shit, did I hit that?” Then got back in his truck and drove away as my dog dragged himself to a snowbank. We found out what happened, when a neighbor came to our door to tell us. We brought our dog, Sully, to the Whitefield vet. They told us the truck had broken his spine and his whole back half was paralyzed and the only thing we could do is put him down. So we did. Now we had to go home and tell our two year old, five year old and fourteen year old that thier dog was dead and that the man who caused it didn’t even have the courtesy to tell us or apologize. We are not mad that this

man hit our dog. We understand that our dog got out and was running in the road. We are upset that he didn’t have the decency to come and tell us or even call the cops. He left Sully, who turned one year old the day before, to die alone in a cold snowbank. This dog was a part of someone’s family. He had a collar and tags on, so I’m sure the man knew he had a home. Our lights in our house were on, so I’m sure he had an idea on where he belonged and he did nothing but drive away. So, now my children have lost a member of their family with no remorse from the man that caused it. All I ask is that you admit that you did it, and apologize. Not for hitting the dog, but for leaving him there alone, when you had no idea if he would live or die. The Manfredis Berlin

The main problem with President Obama has been

because of a large percentage of poorly educated people brainwashed by a FOX controlled media he has not been able to deliver what he promised.

Ithaca Bound

One Day In Kenya Despite our late evening arrival at our hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, sleeping in the next morning was not an option. A full schedule of activities had been planned by our tour guides, and we would not be getting back to the hotel until after dinner. We all knew, though, that we were on what would undoubtedly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sleeping late would just have to wait. There were 17 of us on the Kenyan Adventure that had been put together by Gayle Baker’s Valley Travel, in Conway. Gayle herself would be the overall leader of our ready and eager group. Day One in Kenya would be a long one, indeed, but it was a day that promised to richly reward the traveler that had made the long journey to see and to learn. After a brief meeting with our Kenyan guides that Thursday morning, we were split into three groups, each group being assigned to a particular van and driver/ guide. Our driver/guide’s name was Richard, and he would prove to be an excellent driver and a highly knowledgeable guide, as would the other two driver/guides, as we would learn from the others in our seventeen-member group. It did not take us long to learn that driving in Kenya, especially in and around Nairobi, takes a driver with nerves of steel and a iron will. Quick changes of lane and cutting in and out at the slightest opening are commonplace, vehicles often missing hitting each other by mere inches. If there are any rules of the road there, they are not obvious. There is a great deal of road construction being done on the outskirts of the city; and, as there are no other roads for drivers to take as alternatives, one has to drive over these roads as they are being built. It is a harrowing and bone-jarring experience, to say the least. Drivers there are used to it, I suppose, but one has to wonder how often cars, trucks,

and vans have to be taken in for repairs. Our first destination was the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, part of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. David Sheldrick was among the first and foremost naturalists working in Kenya, and his work set many of the guidelines for animal protection and conservation there. He and his wife, Daphne, worked together tirelessly in an effort to save baby animals orphaned by poachers. In 1977, the Trust was established to honor his memory. It doesn’t take long for the visitor to the

orphanage to realize how dedicated to these young animals their handlers are. They have to be. It takes years of round-the-clock attention and training before these elephant orphans can be released back into the wild. But the pride that the green-coated attendants take in their work is evident when they speak. And watching the interaction between the handlers and the baby elephants is an experience never to be forgotten. Our next stop was the well-preserved home of Karen Von Blixen, perhaps better known in America as Karen Dinesen of “Out of Africa” fame. Before returning to Denmark to live out the remainder of her life, she left quite a legacy. An entire district not far from Nairobi is named Karen, in her honor. On the grounds of her once extensive land holdings is a remarkable hand-made jewelry business called “Kazuri,” a Swahili word that means “small and beautiful.” Founded in 1975 by Lady Susan Wood to help single mothers out of their lives of poverty by providing them with training, paying jobs, and other benefits, the company has grown from a handful of employees to a company that now employs some 350 women, and sells their highly artistic work, made from a special clay, world-wide. We had a chance to tour the several buildings where the jewelry is made and watch the women at work. The work is painstaking, but the results are beautiful. Once deoomed to lives of unrelenting poverty, the women who work here now have lives of some dignity and personal pride. Next on the day’s list of adventures was a stop at the Langatta Giraffe Centre, established by Betty Leslie Melville to help counter the dwindling numbers of the Rothschild giraffe, which had fallen to perhaps 130. Now back to around 500, still an all too small number, the Rothschild giraffe is the world’s tallest land animal, reaching a height of 20 feet. Visitors can get a handful of food pellets from the park’s rangers, and a giraffe’s 18-inch tongue will gladly and gently, if see KENYA page 5

To the vendors, auxiliary members, legion members and SAL members....thanks once again for a job well done. To all those who attended...thank you for supporting the children and youth programs and families in our community. Special recognition, and thanks, to Kyle Newton, SAL member and new author, for his first book publishing and for attending to support our literacy awareness program. The children had a marvelous time “shopping” for gifts for family and friends. What is more special than seeing a smile on the face of a child as they help to wrap a small gift for

a loved one? Winners of the raffles are as follows: 50/50, Shianna Wood; lighted Christmas decoration, Bobby MacKay; Thanksgiving turkey, Sheila Greenip. Thank you to Tillie Meyers for donating the Christmas decoration and to Mr. and Mrs. Roy Newton for donating the Thanksgiving turkey.

Bantams. “This is a very dedicated coach,” his nomination read. “Between baseball and hockey he is coaching almost the entire year.” Don’s enthusiasm, energy and ability to motivate his players while still teaching them the game “in a clear concise manner,” was pointed to as further reason he is deserving of the award.

said veterans who meet all other qualifications may also be exempt. Schult said the timeline for hiring for the Berlin facility is not controlled locally and noted the BOP is in the process of activating three facilities across the country. That, she said, may slow the process down some. “I wouldn’t expect we are up and fully operational for a year,” she said. Schult said staff has to be in place first before inmates are transferred to the facility. She said the first inmates sent here will be the 128 minimum security inmates who will help with some of the work in getting the prison open. As the prison starts to activate, Schult advised that security at the site will tighten. She said armed perimeter patrols will begin soon. She said people looking to get hired should not come to the site. The initial application is done through the federal web site, www. usajobs.gov, and members of the Talent Team stressed they have set up informational sessions and workshops to help locals navigate through the process. A series of informational sessions are underway throughout the North Country over the next two weeks to explain the hiring process. Those interested can then attend specially designed workshops that will help applicants go through the computer-graded application process and prepare for the background check. Talent Team members Mark Belanger and John Dyer said it is important applicants know how to fill out the application form so it passes the initial computer check. If the computer rejects the application, it goes no further. The Family Resource Center has put together an applicant background investigation drill (ABID) workshop that helps

applicants clean up their credit rating and address any other issues they may have. Eventually the Talent Team will expand the informational sessions and workshops to other areas of the state to address the prison’s staffing needs but Dyer said the team wanted to give North Country residents the first opportunity to apply. Schult said as department heads come on board, the prison will start to purchase supplies. David Pease, of the N.H. Procurement Technical Assistance Program, said his program continues to work with local businesses to get them certified to bid on federal contracts. Businesses in Coos County have an advantage because the entire county is certified as a economically disadvantaged region (or HUB zone). Coos businesses are awarded extra points in the bidding process because of the HUB designation. He said a person from his program will be in Berlin full-time starting early next year. White Mountains Community College, Northern Community Investment Corporation, and N.H. Small Business Development Center will be setting up a single point of entry for HUB services at the college’s Twitchell House. “We really want to see businesses get off on the right foot,” Pease said. Informational sessions scheduled include Tuesday, November 29, 2011 - 6 p.m., Colebrook Elementary School; Wednesday, November 30, 2011 - 6 p.m., Littleton Learning Center; Thursday, December 1, 2011 - 6:30 p.m., Lancaster Elementary School; Saturday, December 3, 2011 - 10 a.m.,White Mountains Community College, Berlin; Monday, December 5, 2011 - 6 p.m., Conway Technology Village; and Tuesday, December 6, 2011 - 6 p.m., Bethlehem Library.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis “hot” than “cool” anyway. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The day may seem long, but the week will seem short. So revel in the drawnout moments, especially if your loved ones are near. You will only be this age once. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Knowing what makes you happy is one thing -- and quite a useless thing, too, unless you’re also willing to act on what you know. You are! In fact, you won’t hesitate to follow through. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Do not communicate your secrets to someone because you feel compelled to do so. The feeling is likely coming from an ego need for attention. The need will fade tomorrow, but secret knowledge will linger on. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A friend has made a difference in your life, and you’ll acknowledge the difference in your thoughts. If you let the friend know in writing, the gesture will be quite meaningful. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It may take a few hours to get yourself sorted out in the morning. But as soon as you get your priorities straight, you will handle what’s important to you, and you will handle it well. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 29). You’ll buck tradition. In December, you’ll make a decision that surprises loved ones. They will understand it better in the new year. In February, your job will require you to use imagination and artistry. Friendships grow closer through the spring. You’ll travel to be with family. You’ll accept a challenge and win in July. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 2, 40 and 18.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Anyone who has something to teach will gravitate toward you because you appear eager to learn and are tenacious enough to apply what you learn until it works for you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You know about human nature, and you plan your approach accordingly. You realize that even the most selfless people won’t be compelled to move forward until they know what’s in it for them. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll bask in the warmth and attention of an affectionate someone. And though it’s wonderful to feel acknowledged, you’ll move quickly on because there’s so much you want to do with this day. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Keep your message short and to the point. When your communication is punchy and easy to remember, it will be acted upon. People will move in the way you want them to go. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll use affirmations early in the day to improve the quality of your thoughts on a personal level. You’ll notice immediately that the world responds positively to your attractive and amenable personality. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s not about fitting in right now. You’ll note that those around you have different strengths, beliefs and modes of selfexpression. And yet you see how you can work together. You still feel very much a part of the cosmic whole. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You sense what will make money, get attention or do both. You’re willing to do what works, even if the opinion leaders don’t quite get it. You would rather be

WIFE’S MUMBLING CAUSES FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE

DEAR ABBY: My wife of 25 years has an annoying habit that drives me crazy. When she starts a conversation with me, she’ll speak in a very low voice and mumble without looking at me. I truly cannot hear or understand what she’s saying and have to respond with, “Excuse me?” “Pardon me?” or “What?” When I speak to her, I make sure I talk clearly and in a loud enough voice, but she always throws the same remarks back at me -- “Excuse me?” etc. She doesn’t do this with anyone else. I have pointed out to her that what she is doing is annoying, disrespectful and rude, and asked her to please not do it, but she continues. Why does she do this to me, and what can we do to change it? There’s nothing wrong with her hearing. She’s always telling me to turn down the TV. -- MARRIED TO A MUMBLER IN SAN DIEGO DEAR MARRIED TO A MUMBLER: Allow me to offer a suggestion that may improve the situation: Have YOUR hearing checked. If you can’t hear your wife when she speaks softly and isn’t looking directly at you, and she “always” tells you to turn down the TV, it could indicate that you are suffering from a hearing loss. DEAR ABBY: My mother, whom I love very much, is a terrible gift-giver. At Christmas and on birthdays she gives me ridiculous gifts -- clothing that doesn’t fit, jewelry I would never wear, electronics I haven’t asked for and don’t need. Last year, she removed the tags from everything and didn’t include receipts so the items could be returned. (Some were very costly.) I have created online wish lists, offered Mom “suggestions” and even told her not to worry about gifts. She’ll take none of my suggestions. I try to be polite. But Mom’s feelings

are always hurt when I’m not “thrilled” with the unwanted gifts, and it puts a damper on events that should be happy ones. I hate her wasting money on things that will not be appreciated or used. How do I handle this? -- UNFORTUNATELY UNGRATEFUL DEAR UNGRATEFUL: Because you have tried being logical, helpful and frank, and nothing has worked, thank your mother for her gifts and then put them on eBay or donate them. That way SOMEONE can appreciate them, or you may get enough money back to buy yourself something you will enjoy. DEAR ABBY: We have close friends and alternate having dinner at each other’s homes. The wife has a couple of habits I find annoying. She’ll run her fingers around the outside of a serving dish and then lick her finger. After dinner, I always have a dish of candy on the table for everyone’s enjoyment. But before this woman leaves, she’ll say she’s taking some of it home to eat later. Am I being petty to be annoyed by her behavior? -- WILLING TO SHARE, BUT ... DEAR WILLING: I can see how a dinner guest running her finger around a serving dish, then licking her finger could gross you out, and we both know that rather than telling you she’s taking some of your candy home with her, she should wait until you offer it. However, you say you are close friends. Therefore I assume that on some level her positives outweigh her negatives, or you would have expressed how her behavior makes you feel -- which would have solved your problem because you’d be seeing a lot less of her.

A Charlie Brown Christmas’ at the Gorham town hall auditorium

GORHAM -- The Heather Pierson Trio will present “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at the Gorham town hall auditorium in Gorham on Friday, December 16, at 7 p.m. One of the most endearing Christmas tales ever told, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” has proven itself to be an enduring classic. Originally telecast in December 1965, the program was an instant hit with audiences who connected with Peanuts creator Charles M. Schultz’s cast of characters – especially with its rounded-headed hero Charlie Brown, his woefully scrawny Christmas tree, and his typewriterwielding dog Snoopy. Nearly given the ax by CBS studios at the time of its release, this beloved holiday classic resonates with both children and adults of every generation. Though more than four decades old, the story of commercialism run rampant echoes clearly to this day. The musical score for “A Charlie Brown Christmas”, composed by the late Vince Guaraldi, is just as poignant and touching as the story and includes the hugely popular hit “Linus and Lucy”. His gentle jazz riffs

established musical trademarks that, to this day, still prompt smiles of recognition. This classic collection of holiday music will be performed by a trio of talented local musicians, led by Heather Pierson. Heather is a veteran pianist and performer in the Mount Washington Valley. Her latest CD release, “Make It Mine” was released at a sellout concert at Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield, Maine, last year. She is currently putting the final touches on a new CD of her unique and emotive instrumental piano pieces called “The Open Road”, which is scheduled for a mid- 2012 release. A local favorite at such popular Valley venues as The Wildcat Tavern, Delaney’s, Ledgends Pub and The Red Parka Pub, Heather is also known as the house pianist at The White Mountain Hotel & Resort in North Conway. Joining Heather for this very special Christmas concert will be Shawn Nadeau on bass and Matt Bowman on drums. In addition to his regular performances with Heather, Nadeau is best known as the bassist for local favorites Audio Kickstand and Those

The second period was packed with back and forth action forwards Justin Vien, Taylor Oakes and Trevor Labreque put a lot of pressure on the Rochester goaltending throughout the second period.
