BERLIN -- There will be two new faces on both the city council and school board as a result of last night’s municipal elections. For the first time in Berlin history, there will be four women on the city council. In Ward II, where there were two contested council seats, incumbent Councilor Dori Ducharme won a close race for reelection, defeating former Councilor Richard Lafleur by 15 votes. Denise Morgan Allain had an easier time in her bid, beating incumbent Councilor Tom McCue by a 260-64 margin. Both Ducharme and Allain were endorsed by Mayor Paul Grenier, who ran unopposed for a second term. In the other contested council race, Peter Higbee defeated David Moore for the open Ward III seat. In all, seven of the eight seats on the city council were up for grabs.

Only the seat of Ward III Councilor Mike Rozek was not up for election. In addition to the three contested races, four incumbents ran unopposed. In Ward I, incumbents Lucie Remillard and Russell Otis were unopposed for the two and four year positions respectively. In Ward IV, incumbents Roland Theberge and Diana Nelson were unopposed for the two and four year positions respectively. Grenier said he was pleased with the election results. He said he thought the public recognized the effort put forward by his team and the dividends it has produced. “The easy part is over now, the hard part begins,” he added. Grenier said the redevelopment of the northern section of Main Street will be the top priority of his second term. He said the buildings owned by Rite Aid will be see ELECTION page 13

NC rest areas closed until late spring BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

SHELBURNE -- Motorists stopping at one of the four state rest areas in northern New Hampshire will find the facility closed for the winter months. State rest areas/welcome centers on Route 2 in Shelburne, Route 3 in Colebrook, Interstate 93 in Littleton, and Interstate 89 in Lebanon fell victim to

state budget cuts and closed on Halloween. They are scheduled to reopen on May 15. State Senator John Gallus, R-Berlin, is not happy about the closures. “We’re suppose to be a welcoming place for tourists,” said Gallus. Furthermore, the state senator noted the rest area on Interstate 93 at Sanbornsee REST AREAS page 7

Stroke surgery found ineffective (NY Times) — An operation that doctors hoped would prevent strokes in people with poor circulation to the brain does not work, researchers are reporting. A $20 million study, paid for by the government, was cut short when it became apparent that the surgery was not helping patients who had complete blockages in one of their two carotid arteries, which run up either side of the neck and feed 80 percent of the brain. The surgery was a bypass that connected a scalp artery to a deeper vessel to improve blood flow to the brain. The new study, published on Wednesday in The Journal of the American Medical Association, is the second in recent months to find that a costly treatment, one that doctors had high hopes for, did not prevent strokes. Both the stents and the bypass operation seemed to make sense medically, and doctors thought they should work. Their failure highlights the peril of assuming that an apparent improvement on a lab test or X-ray, like better blood flow or a wider artery, will translate into something that actually helps patients, warned an editorial that accompanied the new findings. Only rigorous studies can tell for sure.

Votes today may be barometer for 2012 election (NY Times) — Voters headed to the polls on Tuesday to render their judgments on mayoral candidates in some of the nation’s largest cities and on contentious ballot measures that affect workers’ rights, reproductive rights and voting rights. While the issues are disparate, they could give an indication of the mood of the electorate ahead of the 2012 presidential race. But if turnout is low, as expected, it would give these votes limited value in

forecasting the results a year from now. One of the fiercest Election Day battles, with national repercussions, will be in Ohio, where organized labor is pushing to repeal a law limiting collective bargaining rights for public employees, including police officers and firefighters. The anti-union law, Senate Bill 5, was the signal achievement of Gov. John R. Kasich and his Republican-led Legislature. If voters overturn the law, they could revive Democratic hopes for 2012 in

that vital swing state. Supporters see the law as an important reform in curbing labor costs in an era of budget deficits. The fight over the measure has become a proxy for a fight about the economy and whether Republicans like Mr. Kasich and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin — who made an antibargaining law the centerpiece of his legislative package — have gone too far in clamping down on spending and have actually prevented a rebound.

U.N. finds signs of work by Greeks said to choose new Iran toward nuclear device leader, but talks hit hurdles (NY Times) — United Nations weapons inspectors released a trove of new evidence on Tuesday that they say makes a “credible” case that “Iran has carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear device” and that the project may still be under way. The long-awaited report relies on evidence of far greater scope and depth than any the International Atomic Energy Agency has made public before, and represents the harshest judgment the agency has ever issued in its decade-long struggle to pierce the secrecy sur-

rounding the Iranian program. The findings have already rekindled a debate among the Western allies and Israel about whether increased diplomatic pressure, sanctions, sabotage or military action could stop Iran’s program. The report offered no estimate of how long it would take for Iran to be able to produce a nuclear weapon. But it laid out the case that Iran had moved far beyond the blackboard to create computer models of nuclear explosions in 2008 and 2009 and conducted experiments on nuclear triggers.

ATHENS (NY Times) — Lucas Papademos, a respected economist, seemed on the verge Tuesday night of being named Greece’s next prime minister, Greek news outlets reported, but party leaders were still engaged in a bitter and drawn-out fight over the make-up of his cabinet. And by late afternoon, Greece seemed to face yet a new set of troubles as Antonis Samaras, the leader of the main opposition party New Democracy, balked at a demand by Eurogroup, the European Union’s group of finance ministers, that several top Greek leaders give a written commitment to the terms of an expanded bailout hammered out with Europe’s leaders last month. “There is such a thing as national dignity,” said Mr. Samaras in a statement. “I have repeatedly explained that, in order to protect the Greek economy and the euro, the implementation of the October 26 agreement is inevitable.”

Convicted murderer seeks new trial LANCASTER — Convicted killer Seth Bader asked Tuesday that his murder conviction be overturned and that he be granted a new trial. In two petitions argued Tuesday at the Coos County Superior Court, Bader claimed that the state failed to provide his defense team with information about a key witness and at least one juror acted

inappropriately during deliberations. Bader was convicted in 1998 of the first-degree murder of his ex-wife, Vicki Bader, and is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole. Bader claimed that his son, Joseph, a key witness for the state during trial, had some “minor trouble at Hampton Beach” recorded in a con-

tact log. Bader said that log was never turned over to his defense team. Bader also said that the fact that his girlfriend at the time, Mary Jean Martin, refused to testify on Fifth Amendment grounds, which was considered by at least one juror during deliberations, violated his right to a fair trial. Prosecutors said all discovery was

turned over to Bader’s defense team, and there was no evidence of juror misconduct. Bader has filed several appeals in various courts, and prosecutors said the issues have already been decided. The judge took the matter under advisement. —Courtesy of WMUR

Knieriem, Groguen honored by Friends of Tuckerman BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

JACKSON — Friends of Tuckerman Ravine presented the third annual Steve Eastman Distinguished Service Award at the non-profit group's second annual gala awards dinner at the Red Fox Pub and Grille in Jackson Saturday. Mount Washington volunteer snow patrol director John Knieriem of Manchester was presented the award by Friends of Tuckerman Ravine board member, and good friend of the late Steve Eastman, John Gorman and Eastman's widow, Sarah Eastman, and siblings and Friends of Tuckerman board members Tom Eastman and Jeanie Eastman Ryan, and brother David Eastman. Knieriem is a charter lifetime member of Friends of Tuckerman and was an aerospace engineer before obtaining his nursing degree at age 61. The Eastman Distinguished Service Award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the preservation, history and safety of the ravine. The award is named in honor of the late Steve Eastman (1949-2008), former publisher and founding co-editor of the Mountain Ear newspaper of Conway. He exemplified a volunteer team spirit and leadership of events that bettered the quality of life in Mount Washington Valley. He was a strong supporter of Friends of Tuckerman Ravine and its conservation goals. Past winners include longtime ski race official Ted Sutton of Lincoln and Jeff Leich, executive director of the New England Ski Museum. Receiving the the executive director's Friends of Tuckerman “Go the

Extra Mile” Award” was tireless volunteer Ron Groguen of southern New Hampshire, who was accompanied by his wife, Robin. “He is there volunteering for us at every Friends of Tuckerman event. He's my right-hand man,” said executive director Al Risch of Madison. Also recognized at the event was Roger Damon, an avalanche expert and former Friends of Tuckerman Ravine board member who recently marked his 65th year as a National Ski Patrol member. Longtime volunteer Sheldon Perry of Tamworth was also lauded by Risch for his service to the non-profit organization. A silent auction was held, offering ski lift tickets donated by New England ski resorts and other items donated by local businesses. Guest speakers at the event were U.S. Forest Service lead snow ranger Chris Joosen, and esteemed climber and writer Mark Synnott of Jackson. Due to anticipated budget cuts, Joosen noted that “friends” groups such as Friends of Tuckerman Ravine will be of great help to the snow rangers as they do their jobs. ••• Friends of Tuckerman is a nonprofit, member-supported organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of the historic recreational uses of New Hampshire's Tuckerman Ravine and Mount Washington, working in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service. The group annually hosts trail work weekends in the ravine, and every April also presents the demanding Friends of Tuckerman Pentathlon (consisting of a run-kayak-bicyclehike-ski race) and the Wildcat Wildfire Pentathlon, held concurrently but on an easier course.

Through its fund-raising efforts, Friends of Tuckerman Ravine over the past decade has been able to assist the U.S. Forest Service in buying radio communications equipment, replenishing first aid caches, support funding for a pedestrian foot bridge along Route 16 in Pinkham Notch, and build a potable water supply in the ravine. The group assisted the U.S. Forest Service at three work weekends in

October to help repair trail and bridge damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene in late summer. Friends of Tuckerman will next attend the annual Boston Globe BEWI Snowsports Expo in Boston, Nov. 10-13.

Family of deceased SNHU student shares their memories RUTLAND, Mass. — The family of a Southern New Hampshire University student found dead in her Washington Hall dorm room over the weekend shared memories of her Tuesday morning. Jamie Lee Cruz was the youngest of seven children in a large and loving family that has lived on Turkey Hill Pond in Rutland for 16 years. She wanted to be a teacher and told her parents SNHU in Manchester was her dream school to study education. “Jamie loved life. She wanted to be a

teacher. She loved children. That was her goal,” said Cyndi Cruz, her mother. Jamie Lee Cruz’s parents said SNHU was her top choice to study education. “That was her No. 1 college. She got accepted to it. That’s where she wanted to go,” said her father, Juan Cruz. She has five brothers, and three have served in the armed forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. She also has a sister who attends college at Johnson and Wales.Her boyfriend of one year, Tom

Fontaine, lives and works in Worcester. Fontaine said the last time he saw Cruz was two weeks ago. The family described her as the emotional bright light who kept everyone close. Her parents said she loved SNHU and called every night with updates about her classes and friends. Juan Cruz said during the last conversation he had with his daughter, she asked him for money to buy clothes because she loved to dress up. Police are still investigating the cir-

cumstances surrounding her unexpected death. An autopsy did not determine how she died. A preliminary investigation shows no foul play and no evidence of drug or alcohol abuse, according to the school president. The Attorney General’s Office said it is not involved in the case. Those close to the case are now waiting to see if toxicology results provide insight into how Cruz died. “As soon as they find out something, they will let us know,” said Juan Cruz. —Courtesy of WMUR

Ask our local Walmart for ‘Wall of Honor’ To the editor: Friday is Veterans Day. It is a day in which we remember our veterans and active military personnel. Some of us choose to honor the service and sacrifices of these men and women with parades and speeches. Some of us proudly display our flags at home or work, while others quietly display our blue or gold stars in our windows silently saying “thank you God” every time another service person makes it back home alive. We personally enjoy seeing the recognition from the business community. Do you know corporate Walmart has a policy in which they allow and encourage each store to have a “Wall of Honor”? This is a special display located in the front of each store to recognize our service men and women, past and present. Some stores choose to have month long displays, others have beautiful permanent displays. Those who have month long displays cover the months of May (leading up to Memorial Day) and November (to cover Veterans Day.) According to the corporate office, it is up the local management to determine the logistics of this display. Yes, that is what they said – “it is up to local management.” Now if you have seen this ‘display’ in our local Walmart, you already know it stays up for a week or less if we even have one. It usually consists of a few photos stuck up on the wall

with little to no explanation. There is plenty of room for an honorable display but that doesn’t seem to happen. Are you paying attention Walmart management? This is a direct reflection on you! If you aren’t sure of what to do, you can contact the home office in Bentonville or other Walmart locations for their ideas. We have pictures of Walmart displays we’ll be happy to share. We know that Walmart management is aware of the holidays in advance because they always seem to come up with a big sale based on some holiday. We all remember to get the hot dogs, paper plates and BBQ grills on sale on Memorial Day, right? There was a sale flyer in today’s paper just before – hmm, could it be – Veterans Day. The local people have spent thousands of local dollars at the local Walmart, paying local salaries. Is it too much to ask for a public display honoring our military, if not all year, at least two months out of the year? We are asking for all active duty, reserves, veterans, friends, families, and anyone else who cares to please tell our local Walmart management, you want to see the “Wall of Honor” proudly displayed at our Walmart. Carol Walker Mike Young, Gold star parents of PFC Benjamin G. Young

by Frank Bruni The New York Times

The Molestor Next Door The longest, most exhaustively researched article I ever wrote for a newspaper or magazine was about a child molester who had sexually abused a little boy living down the street. The abuse went on for more than two years, beginning when the boy was 10. This molester had a job. A house. A wife. Two kids of his own. And he gained access to his victim not through brute force but through patience, play and gifts: help with his homework, computer games, a new bike. To neighborhood observers, including the victim’s parents, the molester’s attentiveness passed for kindness, at least for a while. A molester’s behavior very often does. The arrest on Saturday of a former Penn State University assistant football coach — who is accused of sexually abusing eight pre-adolescent, adolescent and teenage boys — brought this all back to me. I wonder if people who know the coach and saw him working with kids will comment on how genuinely nurturing he seemed and how this surely prevented or discouraged suspicions about him. This is something that has come up repeatedly over decades — I wrote that article back in 1991, for The Detroit Free Press — but that remains tough to accept: the predator to watch out for is less likely to don a trench coat and lurk behind a bush than to wear a clerical collar and stand near the altar or to hold a stopwatch and walk the sidelines. And he (or, for that matter, she) works with children as a function of being drawn to them for reasons beyond their welfare. The former Penn State assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky, 67, founded and ran a charity program for disadvantaged boys. That’s one of the ways he got to know and interact so extensively with kids, some of whom received special favors related to his college-football connections. His alleged abuse of them is said to have occurred over a 15-year period ending in 2009. He maintains his innocence of the charges against him. That’s important to note, because sexual abuse of children is a crime so rightly enraging that the specter of it has prompted unfair rushes to judgment in the past. But true or not, the accusations against Sandusky, spelled out in great detail in a 23-page grand jury report, bring to mind many proven cases in which a molester occupied a position of trust, identified and gravitated to children who were especially vulnerable, made them feel special and was by all outward appearances their champion,

which many molesters indeed believe themselves to be. In their own minds these molesters aren’t predators. They’re people whose affinity for children just happens to have a sexual element, the satisfaction of which they’ve convinced themselves isn’t such a big, harmful deal. Parents face a tricky challenge. They need to be watchful but not paranoid, because most clergy members, scout leaders, camp counselors and coaches aren’t abusers in waiting and are improving children’s lives. They deserve the opportunity to. But parents should also remain conscious of an additional lesson suggested by the Penn State story. Institutions do an awful job of policing themselves. That has been true of the Boy Scouts, which has paid out tens of million of dollars in response to lawsuits by former scouts molested by adults who continued to work in the organization despite complaints or questions about their behavior. That has been true of the Roman Catholic Church, whose diocesan heads and bishops repeatedly transferred abusive priests from one parish to another rather than report them to law enforcement authorities. This cover-up spanned decades and went all the way up the hierarchy of the church. Many factors explain it, including a fear of scandal and desire to protect the church’s image. The Boy Scouts, too, didn’t want messiness exposed. Was that a dynamic at Penn State as well? Two university officials have been indicted for not contacting the police after being alerted many years ago to the possibility that Sandusky was abusing boys from his charity on university premises. And there are lingering questions about whether the university’s renowned head football coach, Joe Paterno, was irresponsible. According to an account in the indictment that he hasn’t disputed, a graduate assistant in 2002 told him of inappropriate activity in a university shower between a boy and Sandusky, who had already retired from his longtime job as the coordinator of the football team’s defense. Coach Paterno relayed that to a university official, then apparently moved on. And Sandusky continued to interact with troubled boys. Paterno absolutely should have followed up. Maybe he just couldn’t envision someone like Sandusky — a distinguished professional, a seeming do-gooder — as a molester. But it’s important that we all do.

North Country writers to gather at White North Country Anthology wins top honors at NH Literary Awards Mountain Café and Bookstore for ‘Beyond the Notches’ booksigning event

North Country Anthology takes top honors at NH Literary Awards event MANCHESTER, NH--Four years in the making, Beyond the Notches: Stories of Place in New Hampshire’s North Country received the 2011 award for Outstanding Work of Nonfiction at the N.H. Writers’ Project New Hampshire Literary Awards event held Nov. 4 in Manchester. Editors John R. Harris, Kay Morgan and Mike Dickerman were on hand to receive the award on behalf of all the contributors to the book. The award was presented by N.H. Writers’ Project vice president Mary Jo Alibrio, whose remarks included some of the comments made by the judge in the nonfiction category, Art Winslow, former literary editor and executive editor of The Nation and frequent contributor to the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune Book Forum. About Beyond the Notches, Winslow wrote: “the symbiotic relationship between the land and its people is the great throbbing heart of Beyond the Notches, rendered close and dear on virtually every page, and without shyness or rancor it engages difficult questions with open-ended answers.” Designed as a project to collect and celebrate essays “with dirt under their fingernails” by North Country writers, Beyond the Notches “manages to wed together historicism and contemporary affairs relatively seamlessly, in a continuum of consideration that balances questions of stewardship, economic necessity and communal responsibility,” according to Winslow. The book, a compendium of fiftyone original essays by an equal mix of noted New Hampshire writers and new voices from the North Country, brings together the past and present and looks to the future of this unique region. Howard Frank Mosher, noted fiction writer from Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, has called it “the best anthology of a distinctive American region I have ever read.” In his foreword to the book, Richard Ober, president of the N.H. Charitable

Foundation wrote, “It’s not sentimental about the region’s stunning beauty, and it doesn’t flinch from the reality of a boom-and-bust economy. It is, in short, a collection worthy of the singular place it chronicles so well.” In addition to stunning cover art and five specially commissioned paintings by Bethlehem resident Amy Delventhal, the book is lavishly illustrated by historic and contemporary photos, maps, and art by the White Mountain School of nineteenth century artists. “Receiving this award is especially gratifying and it is a great tribute to all who had a hand in making this book a reality, from my fellow co-editors to the more than 40 individual writers who contributed their excellent essays. This award belongs to all of them,” said Dickerman. The anthology project was funded by grants and donations from Jane’s Trust, the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund, Franklin Pierce University, the New Hampshire Humanities Council, and numerous family foundations and individual donors. Copies of the book, which are available in both softcover and hardcover formats, may be found in bookstores and gift shops throughout the state, and directly from www. northcountrynhstories.org or the book’s publisher, Bondcliff Books of Littleton, NH (www.bondcliffbooks. com).

Corrections In yesterday’s story on Gorham’s tax rate, we were provided with the incorrect number of full time employees the town has on the payroll. The town employs 42 full-time positions, not 52 as was previously reported. Corrections to the obituary printed in the Berlin Daily Sun: 1. Mary is sur-

vived by one brother Norman Murphy of Cross, South Carolina and there were two misspellings: Marion Coffee should have been Marion Coffey and Meagan Berry Should have been Maegan Berry. We at Fleury-Patry Funeral Home appologize for the error.

GORHAM -- A number of the North Country’s best writers will gather at the White Mountain Café and Bookstore, 212 Main Street in Gorham, on Sunday, November 13, at 2 pm. The writers, contributors to the recently released anthology, “Beyond the Notches: Stories of Place in New Hampshire’s North Country”, will be on hand to celebrate the publication of this impressive and delightful anthology. In addition to meeting this remarkable group of writers, the event will be a rare chance to have the anthology signed by those present, making for a unique gift or keepsake. “Beyond the Notches” is perhaps the most important collection of writings about Northern New Hampshire ever assembled in one volume. This past weekend, the collection won the prestigious New Hampshire Writers Project Award for the Outstanding Nonfiction Book of 2011. “Beyond the Notches” is destined to become a classic and should be in the home of every resident interested in the rich heritage of our region. One of the New England’s best-known authors, writer Howard Frank Mosher, called “Beyond the Notches”, “The best anthology of a distinctive American region I’ve ever read.” “Beyond the Notches” features 400 pages of nonfiction writing by authors with an intimate knowledge of our region, as well as breathtaking photos, original artwork and historic maps. Organized into five sections — First Stories, Transformation and Change, Working the Land, Conservation and Recreation, and Competing Visions — the volume includes new work by area residents and writers John Harrigan, Barbara Tetreault, Peter Crane, Rebecca Brown, Steve Smith, Edie Clark, Fran Lavoie, Ernest Hebert, Tom Eastman, and Jack McEnany,

For the Sunday event, the White Mountain Café and Bookstore is pleased to present a number of notable contributors, including Sally Manikian, Peter Crane, Barb Tetreault, Susan Zizza and Jeff Woodburn. Manikian spent almost a decade working in the backcountry of the White Mountains, in all four seasons. Peter Crane has spent the last twenty years working for the Mount Washington Observatory, and has worked for both the Appalachian Mountain Club and the US Forest Service. Tetreault, a North Country native, has been a newspaper reporter in Coos County for more than 30 years. A freelance writer and photographer, Zizza has won numerous awards. Woodburn is also well known to area residents, as a local writer, businessman and legislator. The White Mountain Café and Bookstore will have plenty of copies of “Beyond the Notches” on hand for purchase, which can be autographed by the contributors who will be present. Anyone present can also enter a raffle for an autographed copy of “Beyond the Notches”. Located at 212 Main Street, the White Mountain Café and Bookstore is Coos County’s only independent bookstore. A frequent Best of New Hampshire winner, the cafe features a variety of handmade muffins, scones, desserts along with soups, sandwiches, paninis and the best coffees and teas in the North Country. For more information on the “Beyond the Notches” event, call the White Mountain Café and Bookstore at 4662511.

Tickets abound as parking ban begins BERLIN — One week into the winter parking ban, most people are comply with the rule. Some, however, had to be reminded that the city is serious about the winter ban. Berlin Police issued 57 parking tickets in the four hours between midnight on Nov. 1 and 4 a.m. on Nov. 2. That was the first night the city’s winter parking ban took effect, but many motorists left their vehicles on the street and are now having to pay the $15 fine.Fines for parking on the street overnight during the winter increase as the number of offenses increases, so, it should not be

among others. Amy Delventhal, Bethlehem artist created the cover art and five paintings for the interior of the book.

surprising that the number of tickets went down dramatically the next night to just six. For the rest of the week, the police log shows that almost no parking tickets were issued until the early morning hours on Monday, Nov. 7. Another half-dozen unlucky motorists had their vehicles ticketed for parking on the city streets during the ban. Parking fines go up from $15 to $30 and then to $50, for subsequent offenses. Ultimately, police say, they can and will use a parking boot for those who make a habit of parking on the street overnight during the winter months.

REST AREAS from page one

ton has been reduced to operating three days a week. The rest of the week there are port-a-potties available for the public’s use. Gallus said the Sanbornton rest area is heavily used by North Country residents traveling south and he stops on his trips to the state capital to check on its condition. He said frequently the port-a-potties are overflowing and unclean. “It’s really tragic,” he said. “We’re suppose to be a tourist state and we can’t keep our facilities clean.” Gov.John Lynch proposed closing half the state’s rest areas in his fiscal budget this spring as a way to cut $800,000 from the budget. All four rest areas in the North Country were included in the closures. At the same time, management of the state’s rest areas was transferred from the Department of Transportation to the Department of Resources and Economic Development which includes the Division of Travel and Tourism. The department uses brochure counts to gauge visitor numbers for its rest areas. Last year, the counts were 34,038 for Colebrook, 63,469 for Shelburne, 74,134 for Littleton, 93,285 for Lebanon. Gallus said he was able to get $200,000 reinstated in the budget to operate the four North Country rest areas for the full year. He said his idea was to keep the rest areas operating while allowing time to explore partnerships and ways to generate revenues that would enable the facilities to stay open. He said one idea to generate revenue is to allow businesses to advertise inside the rest areas for a fee. Former Director of Travel and Tourism Alice DeSouza worked on the issue for DRED. She said the $200,000 was not sufficient to run the four centers for a year. DRED spokeswoman Amy Bassett said the total cost to run the four centers full time year around is approximately $375,000. With not enough money to keep the four northern rest areas open year around, DeSouza said the decision was made to close the facilities from Oct. 31 until May 15. She said operating costs are higher in the winter months and the majority of travel occurs during the spring, summer, and fall seasons. Because the $200,000 appropriation secured by Gallus did not cover the Sanbornton rest area, the division reduced hours at other rest areas to keep it open three days a week. At the September meeting of the Coos County Commissioners, Coos County Treasurer Fred King proposed using some funds the county has designated for economic development to help keep the Colebrook and Shelburne rest areas open full-time. He proposed the county work with the local chambers of commerce to operate the facilities. King followed up at the October meeting with a request for $5,000 from the county on behalf of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. He explained the chamber, which was located in the rest area, had put together a proposal to operate the rest area through the winter in partnership with DRED. The commission rejected the request because there was no provision to operate the Shelburne rest area. Commissioners said it would be unfair to fund one of the two facilities since both are in Coos County. Commissioner Tom Brady, who had met with DRED officials, said he also could not support the Colebrook proposal because the chamber was not required to pay rent to use the building. The North Country Chamber has since moved into a building in downtown Colebrook. Androscoggin Valley Chamber of Commerce Vice President Mark Belanger said his chamber is concerned about the closing of the Shelburne rest area

and see it as a major portal for the region. He said a group of chamber leaders met with DRED officials to talk about the facility. But Belanger said the chamber’s resources to help out are limited. He said the chamber does not the financial or staffing capacity to provide much support. Belanger noted the chamber was in tough shape just a few years ago and said it has since worked hard to become stable and build up partnerships. Unlike the North Country Chamber which was located in the Colebrook facility, he pointed out the Androscoggin Valley Chamber office is approximately 20 miles from the Shelburne rest area. Belanger said the chamber is willing to help out in any way it can without overexerting its own organization. He said one approach may be to charge mem-

bers to advertise in the rest area, “We don’t know what our role can be,” Belanger said. While the facilities are closed for the winter, DeSouza said the plan is to reopen them this spring. “In the spring it is our intention to open the four gateway welcome centers full-time through October 31,” she said. DeSouza said the division is still looking at ways to keep the facilities open long term. Gallus said he also is not willing to give up on keeping the rest areas open full-time and has plans to set up a meeting with DRED officials, himself, and state Senate Finance Committee Chair Chuck Morse. “It’s not dead by a long shot yet,” he said. RE/MAX Northern Edge Realty sponsored the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon during this years Riverfire and raised $250 for the Berlin Main Street Program.

Loose change leads to $1,000 BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM — North Country residents socked away nearly $50,000 last week and that was just in change. In addition to adding to their net worth in silver and copper, 25 lucky savers won $100 each, and three won the trio of grand prizes of $1,000 savings bonds. Nine banks and credit unions with 24 branches around the North Country encouraged all ages to participate in the Family Resource Center’s Roll Your Change Week. As a result, 18 new savings accounts were opened and 516 savers deposited $47,768.04 in spare change they collected throughout the year. That number is down from last year, organizers said, a drop they attribute to some banks withdrawing their participation and the economically tough climate. Those who participated, however, were entered into a drawing to win one of three $1,000 series EE savings bonds. This year’s winners, drawn on Wednesday, Nov. 2, by NH Banking Department Representative Richard Arcand, were Chris Turgeon of Gorham, Cheryl White of Milan and Carol Titus of Bethlehem. Titus was one of the participants who opened new accounts, while Turgeon and White each deposited less than $3 in change for their winning entry. Outgoing Family Resource Center program coordinator Judy Woodward used their small deposits to point out that any amount could be a winner during Roll Your Change Week. She issued a challenge to those who see little value in those loose coins to hold on to all their change for just one week and see how much it adds up to. According to information provided by the bank branches, which recorded their largest deposits of change during the week, some participants rolled hundreds and even thousands of dollars worth of coins. One depositor in Conway banked $1,100, while Berlin and Gorham branches saw deposits in the $700

and $800 ranges. The annual Roll Your Change Week event started in the Androscoggin Valley in 2007, after Woodward heard about a similar savings program at a conference. She and stakeholders from the area’s financial institutions recognized a need for financial education in the area and collaborated to devise this fun, community-wide event, that highlights financial saving. The kids are brought in on the action as well, with participants in the After-School Program and some high schoolers volunteering to roll change for people at an annual “Rock and Roll” night. The youngsters rolled around $1,000 worth of change this year. Woodward explained that during the inaugural Roll Your Change in 2007, with just the banks and credit unions in the Berlin-Gorham area participating, $18,175 in rolled coins was deposited. The following year that grew to $19,895. The project expanded in 2009 to include Lancaster, Littleton and Whitefield areas and the total savings in rolled change expanded as well, to $35,183. That same year, Franklin’s Family Resource Center organized a similar event in the lakes region and those savers banked $43,973 worth of coins. The program continued to grow in 2010, Woodward explained with the Concord and Seacoast areas joining Franklin and the North Country — which now had stretched to include the Colebrook area. Last year, statewide, Roll Your Change Week resulted in deposits of more than half a million dollars in coins. Granite staters banked $519,000, with the North Country responsible for $67,691 of that total. Financial institutions taking part in Roll Your Change Week, which ran from Oct. 24-29, included: First Colebrook Bank, Woodlands Credit Union, Laconia Savings Bank, Northway Bank, Citizens Bank, Gropaco Federal Credit Union, Guardian Angel Credit Union, Passumpsic Savings Bank, and Union Bank.

ELECTION from page one

demolished within the next two months and he wants to see that area redeveloped and back on the tax rolls as soon a possible. On the school board side, six people ran for the three two-year positions open. Incumbents Nicole Plourde and Nathan Morin were both re-elected by strong margins. Plourde said she is looking forward to an exciting time on the board with the recent public openness to looking at a regional approach to education. She said the goal is to do what is best for the young people of the area.

Kenneth Proulx, who retired last year after 39 years as a teacher and guidance counselor with the school district, won the third seat. “I’m looking forward to working with the present members of the school board,” Proulx said. Louise Valliere ran unopposed for the four year term on the school board, replacing longtime board member Martha Laflamme who chose not to run. Turnout was low with 28 percent of registered voters casting their votes. City Clerk Debra Patrick said the turnout for the last election in 2009 was 40 percent.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis a leader who has the knowledge and experience to teach you well. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The best reactions to the unexpected twists and turns of this day will be either calm and collected or humorous. If you have enough rest and a positive attitude, it won’t be hard to do. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Remember when you made believe you were a fireman, superhero, animal doctor or princess? Now you’ll pretend you’re something very close to what you already are, and by pretending, you’ll make it so. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You won’t always agree with what a loved one wants to do. However, if you find one or two points on which you can at least partially agree, you can work things out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your time is precious, and you won’t be willing to spend even 20 minutes doing what you don’t want to be doing. This may mean you have to exit a situation before its natural ending, but so be it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll nurture the ties that keep you socially connected. In the weeks to come, you’ll call on your network to help you deal with the practical matters of life. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 9). The power of unconditional love will motivate you to accomplish great things. Make a key move in the next three weeks. New resources will open up to you. You’ll accept an important responsibility in December. February brings a decision that affects your financial life. Do your research, and go slowly into deals. Capricorn and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 19, 20, 49 and 15.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It might feel like you’re getting nothing done because the entire morning is spent en route, on the Internet or with the phone glued to your head. The reality is that this is how most of your business will be accomplished. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you resent a person who puts more emphasis on finding pleasure than you do, it could be a sign that you need to enjoy yourself more. Bottom line: You can’t expect yourself to be happy if you never make time for fun. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll come across someone who is interested in the same things as you, and you’ll exchange excellent information. It’s the start of something good. Follow up in three days for best results. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll notice that lately a certain friendship has affected how you feel about yourself in a consistently negative way. A little distance will be healthy for both of you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be distracted, but not by unimportant or irrelevant matters. You’ll get creative in investigating where these distractions lead. They have such validity that following them will be critical to your success. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Another person’s privilege reminds you of what you don’t have -- or perhaps alerts you to this for the first time. Rest assured, there are benefits to being without this perk, and you can probably imagine what they are. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You won’t tolerate being dominated by a person who feels entitled to lead for no good reason. However, you will follow

Page 16 — THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Wednesday, November 9, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren

NOISE FROM GUEST BEDROOM LEAVES HOSTS SPEECHLESS DEAR ABBY: My son invited two friends to our home for the weekend. We had never met them before, but they seemed nice. At bedtime, the young man was on the couch and the girl was in our spare bedroom. In the middle of the night, I was awakened to loud lovemaking noises. They grew louder and louder, and the headboard was banging against our bedroom wall. My husband and I were mortified. Finally, I banged on the wall and it stopped. We couldn’t believe these kids would act that way in someone’s home. They left before breakfast, so we didn’t have to face them in the morning. What was proper here? Would it have been appropriate to knock on the bedroom door and ask the guy -- or both of them -- to leave? I told my son about it the next day. He was embarrassed and apologized for his friends. What should we do if this ever happens again? -- RED-FACED IN MICHIGAN DEAR RED-FACED: Unless you first required your son’s friends to sign an abstinence pledge before bedding down at your place, you were right not to have evicted them before morning. Next time, keep this from happening by having your son tip them off at bedtime that you’re light sleepers and prefer not to be awakened by “nocturnal whoopee.” DEAR ABBY: When I’m reading a book, my husband chooses that moment to begin a conversation. If I don’t immediately put it down and give him my full attention, he gets upset and says I’m being rude to continue reading and not talk to him. I think it’s rude of HIM to interrupt me when I’m reading. These aren’t important conversations or even questions

he needs immediate answers to. They are conversations we could easily share over dinner, or later when I’m not reading. I love to read, but as a busy mom I rarely have the time. Being interrupted during those rare moments drives me crazy and makes me feel even crazier when I’m accused of being rude if I don’t want to chat right then. Who’s right and who’s rude? -- TRYING TO FINISH MY BOOK DEAR TRYING TO FINISH: Frankly, I think your husband is right. He may not need the answer to his question as much as he needs your companionship at the time he’s reaching out. If finishing a chapter is so important that you can’t take a few minutes and talk with him, then suggest that in 15 to 20 minutes you can give him the rest of the evening to talk. If my husband is involved in a project, or I am, that’s what we do, and it works for us. DEAR ABBY: How do you handle a relative who seems to think your house is her own personal garage sale site? She rifles through my closets, brings out clothing, and then asks, “What can I pay you for this?” She also looks around our garage for items that are being stored and asks the same question. She would never act this way at a friend’s home, but somehow it’s different with me. By the way, she’s my sister. -- NO SALE IN AUSTIN DEAR NO SALE: Because it’s your sister and not some nervy acquaintance, be light-handed in your response. Smile and say, “I’m not ready to let it go, but when I am, you’ll be the first to know.” Then get her out of your closet or garage and direct the conversation elsewhere.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860

Volunteers working to collect 300 gifts for needy kids this Christmas MILAN, N.H. —While many Milan families are busy with holiday activities, a group of local volunteers is focused on filling empty shoe boxes with school supplies, toys, hygiene items and notes of encouragement for needy kids overseas. Milan families are participating in the world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child, an effort that has hand-delivered 86 million gifts to kids worldwide since 1993. This year-round project of Samaritan’s Purse is coming to its peak, as local businesses, churches and schools prepare to collect gift-filled shoe boxes during National Collection Week, Nov. 14-21. Volunteers can drop off their shoe box gifts at a bustling location in the area to help kids in 100 countries know they are loved and not forgotten. The local collection site is the Milan Community Methodist Church, 763 Milan Road, Milan, NH, 03588. Operating hours are: Mon: 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Tues: 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Wed: 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. Thurs: 4 p.m. - 6

p.m. Fri: 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Sat: 4 p.m. 6 p.m. Sun: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. Mon: Not Collecting Operation Christmas Child, a project of international Christian relief and evangelism organization Samaritan’s Purse, uses whatever means necessary to reach suffering children around the world with these gifts of hope, including sea containers, trucks, trains, airplanes, boats, camels and dog sleds. Tracking technology also allows donors to “follow” their box to the destination country where it will be handdelivered to a child in need. To register shoe box gifts and find out the destination country, use the Follow Your Box donation form found at www.samaritanspurse.org/occ. For more information on how to participate in Operation Christmas Child, call (518) 357-2284 or visit www. samaritanspurse.org/occ. National Collection Week for gift-filled shoe boxes is Nov. 14-21; however, shoe box gifts are collected all year at the Samaritan’s Purse headquarters in Boone, N.C.

Scouting for Food Drive is this Saturday BERLIN -- Food pantries throughout the state are struggling, especially as these cold days of November bring us closer to the holidays.

The scouts are asking all local residents to donate what they can this Saturday. The bags of donated foods will then be divided among the community’s three food pantries: Tri-County Cap ( 7523248), Salvation Army (752-1644),

the Ecumenical Food Pantry (Grafton Street) and also St. Vincent de Paul for Christmas Baskets. Simply leave your food items in a bag or box (labeled “scouting for food”) on your front porch or where it can easily be seen. Scouts and Friends will begin collecting around the streets of Gorham and Berlin by 9:00am. If your donation has not been collected by afternoon, please contact one of the food pantries mentioned above. Last year, the troops collected 1308 bags of food.

City seal back on council agenda Patrick, Flum engaged to wed BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- The city seal was back on the council agenda Monday night. Three years ago, then Mayor David Bertrand and the council voted to redesign the city seal to remove the smoke stack and present a new image of the city to the world. Then-Councilor David Poulin said the smoke stack perpetuated the city’s image as a smelly mill town and he proposed focusing more on the city’s forest heritage. The decision to change the seal was strongly opposed by Mayor Paul Grenier who called it a repudiation of the city’s heritage. He made restoring the original city seal part of his campaign platform back in 2009. Grenier brought the issue up at one of his first council meetings but failed to get the votes needed to reconsider the previous council’s decision. The issue had remained dormant until this week when Councilor Mark Evans asked to have it put on the work session agenda. Evans explained that when he voted in favor of changing the seal, he thought it was simply a matter of changing the city’s letterhead. Since then, he said he has realized that it is a bigger undertaking and requires changing uniform patches and the decals on city vehicles. Evans also noted that since the vote, the Burgess BioPower plant has been approved and is under construction. He said a smoke stack will remain part of the city’s landscape for the foreseeable future. In light of those facts, Evans said he was proposing the council reconsider its earlier decision and readopt the original city seal. Grenier said the city had a large inventory of decals and the council had voted to use up old letterhead, envelopes, and decals before ordering material with the new seal. As a result, he said City Clerk Debra Patrick reported the city has only spent $2,063 on material with the new seal. Furthermore, while the city had a stamp made with the new seal, Patrick kept the original stamp. Grenier said Patrick recommended that whatever the current council decides, it also consider amending the city charter to stipulate the city seal can only be changed by a vote of the public. The mayor said Patrick is concerned that the design of the city seal is becoming a political football every time there is a change in the city council. Grenier said he agrees with Patrick that

changing the city seal should require public approval through either a charter amendment or a charter revision commission. “The city seal should be about community identity and not a political football,” he said. Councilor Tom McCue said the council spent a lot of time discussing the city seal before it acted to change it three years ago. He asked that notes of the earlier meetings on the matter be distributed to all the councilors. Councilor Lucie Remillard said there was a lot of discussion but said she also felt it had become a political issue at the time. She said the council did not delve deeply into the cost. She said getting rid of the smokestack was the prime focus. Councilor Mike Rozek said he considers himself a traditionalist and would like to go back to the original seal. Councilor Diana Nelson said she also prefers the original seal over the new seal. “To me, it just doesn’t represent us,” Nelson said, of the new seal. With only McCue opposed, the council agreed to go forward with changing back to the original seal with a resolution on the next council meeting agenda for a first reading and future public hearing.
