Berlin teenager missing, parents fear for her safety BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN — Less than 24 hours after her father reported to police that Katelyn Couture was with Dylan Gingues walking in downtown Berlin, the two disappeared. Couture's father made the report because Gingue, who is 24, was prohibited by his bail conditions from having contact with the 17-year-old girl. Though Katelyn appears to have left voluntarily, her mother, Allison Giglio, is concerned for her safety because her daughter and Gingue have had a tumultuous relationship, which included physical violence, she said. “I've seen bruises on her,” Giglio said, explaining that Gingue had admitted getting violent with her daughter at times. Add to that, Gingue is free on personal recognizance bail after being arrested for negligent driving, false imprisonment and simple assault, all involving Katelyn.

Gingue is alleged to have held Couture in his vehicle on Cates Hill Road against her will on March 10, grabbing her arm, and traveling at a high rate of speed while she was attempting to exit. That charge only came about, Giglio said, because there was a witness. A third party called in the incident and Katelyn only went to make the report after Gingue was arrested, he Katelyn Couture mother said. On Tuesday evening, however, as Karl Couture was driving to work, he saw his daughter with Gingue and her friend Sara, who is see MISSING page 9

Berlin police chief admits frustration with county attorney BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – Berlin Police Chief Peter Morency admitted some frustration with the Coos County Attorney’s office over the handling of two criminal cases developed by Berlin police. The subject came up Wednesday night during the city council’s review of the police department’s proposed fiscal 2012 budget. Mayor Paul Grenier asked Morency to brief the council on issues that have arisen with the county attorney’s

office. Morency said he was very upset over the plea bargain negotiated in the case of the Colebrook man who stole prescription drugs from Rite Aid Drug Store in Berlin last July. Shawn Labonville, 42, walked into the store and demanded the prescription painkiller Oxycontin from the pharmacy. He walked away with more than $1,500 worth of the narcotic. Berlin police arrested Labonville on felony charges of theft by unauthorized taking and see FRUSTRATION page 11

Council reviews police,

ambulance budgets BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – The Berlin Police Department and Berlin Emergency Medical Services both received kudos from the city council Wednesday night for keeping the city safe and providing excellent ambulance service. The two organizations reviewed their proposed fiscal 2013 budget requests with the council.

The council spent about an hour discussing the police commission's requested budget of $2.82 million, up $126,116 or 4.7 percent over the current budget. Police Chief Peter Morency acknowledged that the city manager requested departments also submit a budget showing no increase over the present budget. Morency said a zero increase budget see COUNCIL page 6

G.M. turns to MTV to draw young buyers DETROIT (NY Times) — Ross Martin, 37, is the executive vice president of MTV Scratch, a unit of the giant media company Viacom that consults with brands about connecting with consumers. He and his team are trying to help General Motors solve one of the most vexing problems facing the car industry: many young consumers today just do not care that much about cars. That is a major shift from the days when the car stood at the center of youth culture and wheels served as the ultimate gateway to freedom and independence. Today Facebook, Twitter and text messaging allow teenagers and 20-somethings to connect without wheels. “They think of a car as a giant bummer,” said Martin. “Think about your dashboard. It’s filled with nothing but bad news.” There is data to support. Martin’s observations. In 2008, 46.3 percent of potential drivers 19 years old and younger had drivers’ licenses, compared with 64.4 percent in 1998, according to the Federal Highway Administration, and drivers ages 21 to 30 drove 12 percent fewer miles in 2009 than they did in 1995. Forty-six percent of drivers aged 18 to 24 said they would choose Internet access over owning a car, according to the research firm Gartner.

Insider trading ban for lawmakers clears Congress

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The Senate gave final approval on Thursday to an ethics bill that bans insider trading by members of Congress, clearing the measure for President Obama, who called for such legislation in his State of the Union address two months ago. Passage came swiftly after the Senate voted, 96 to 3, to end debate on the measure, which was approved in the House by

a vote of 417 to 2 last month. The lopsided votes showed lawmakers desperate to regain public trust in an election year, when the public approval rating of Congress has sunk below 15 percent. The bill originated in the Senate. But House Republican leaders rewrote it, and the Senate on Thursday accepted the changes. Watchdog groups and some lawmakers said the changes had weakened the bill by

killing two important provisions added on the Senate floor in early February. One provision would have regulated a growing industry that collects “political intelligence” from political insiders for the use of hedge funds, mutual funds and other investors. The second provision dropped from the bill would have given prosecutors powerful new tools to pursue public corruption cases.

U.S. is inching toward elusive U.S. intelligence report warns goal of energy independence of global water tensions MIDLAND, Texas (NY Times) — Across the country, the oil and gas industry is vastly increasing production, reversing two decades of decline. Using new technology and spurred by rising oil prices since the mid-2000s, the industry is extracting millions of barrels more a week, from the deepest waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the prairies of North Dakota. At the same time, Americans are pumping significantly less gasoline. While that is partly a result of the recession and higher gasoline prices, people are also driving fewer miles and replacing

older cars with more fuel-efficient vehicles at a greater clip, federal data show. Taken together, the increasing production and declining consumption have unexpectedly brought the United States markedly closer to a goal that has tantalized presidents since Richard Nixon: independence from foreign energy sources, a milestone that could reconfigure American foreign policy, the economy and more. In 2011, the country imported just 45 percent of the liquid fuels it used, down from a record high of 60 percent in 2005.

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The American intelligence community warned in a report released on Thursday that problems with water could destabilize countries in North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia over the next decade. Increasing demand and competition caused by the world’s rising population and scarcities created by climate change and poor management threaten to disrupt economies and increase regional tensions, the report concludes. Prepared at the request of the State Department, the report is based on a classified National Intelligence Estimate completed last October that reflected an increasing focus on environmental and other factors that threaten security. An estimate reflects the consensus judgment of all intelligence agencies. While the report concluded that wars over water are unlikely in the coming decade, it said that countries could use water as political and economic leverage over neighbors and that major facilities like dams and desalination plants could become targets of terrorist attacks.

Ice-out likely soon; early melt could break record BY DAN SEUFERT THE UNION LEADER

GILFORD — Ice-watchers and record-keepers have their eyes on Lake Winnipesaukee, watching for what could be the earliest declared Ice-Out in history. Ice-Out is officially declared by the pilots of Emerson Aviation in Gilford, who survey the lake at this time of year. It is declared when the lake ice melts enough to allow the M/S Mount Washington cruise ship to navigate between Alton Bay, Center Harbor, Weirs Beach, Meredith and Wolfeboro. The declaration of Ice-Out is not based on any scientific measurement. It’s just an “eyeball” measurement, according to Emerson Aviation pilot John Anderson, who has been surveying the lake over the past few weeks. To many, the declaration of Ice-Out marks the traditional start of the spring season, and it officially allows many island owners to regain water access to their cottages. Ice-Outs have been observed and

recorded since 1887, when Ice-Out took place on May 7. The majority of declarations have been made in the month of April. The earliest recorded dates prior to this year were in 2010, when it was declared on March 24, and in 1921, when Ice-Out was on March 28. This year’s ice has been notably thin, thanks to warmer-than-usual temperatures. “There were some open areas of water all winter, so it was not a normal year at all,” Anderson said. On Wednesday, Ice-Out was close, said Anderson. “The southern area of the lake is pretty much clear, there’s still some ice in the northern harbors, in Center Harbor and Meredith, for instance,” he said. With the warm weather this week, Ice-Out could occur any day now. If it is declared before Saturday, it will be an all-time record. “It look like it will be a record year,” Anderson said. “Whether or not it sets the record, we’ll have to see.”

Fenn School. We are also at the “center” of the community--a vibrant, colorful burst of energy in what can be an otherwise dreary six months of winter. Stop in for a visit--nothing chases away the winter blues like dancing the chicken dance with preschoolers! Your financial investment in the Gorham Community Learning Center is an investment in the future of our communities, and every dollar will be carefully invested in our future leaders--our communities’ children. Thank you. Angela Brown, President Board of Directors Gorham Community Learning Center

Jus’ Thinkin’ Ithaca Bound

With gasoline prices once again on the rise, many of us are once again looking for someone to blame. (How we do have to have someone to blame for our woes.) Usually, it is whoever is occupying the White House at the time that bears the burden of our blame. Never mind that those who understand the issue far better than most of us tell us that the occupant of the Oval Office really has little to no effect on the matter, we will take our ire out on that office holder, regardless. And, of course, needless to say, the party on the outs will lead the way in placing the blame. As has been said of war, so it can be said of politics, truth is usually the first casualty. Why we are still in Afghanistan is a mystery to many – if not most of us – these days. Our ill-thought-through and poorly executed adventure in that country was largely doomed from the beginning. No nation, regardless of how powerful or how well-intentioned its reasons, has ever succeeded in establishing a unified country there. Article after article has been written regarding the history of this land that is all but constantly at war with itself and resistant to all outside pressures. Its competing clans are far more interested in establishing and defending their own fiefdoms, rather than pledging allegiance to some centralized government. There is no shame in admitting that we, too, have failed there. Other nations have failed before us. To be sure, we were finally able to find and kill Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the September 11, tragedy, which, we were told, was the reason we sent our troops there in the first place. But, otherwise, whatever other mission we may have had there was supposed to have been, it has been unsuccessful. Let us be strong enough to admit it. We have spent enough of our nation’s treasure there. Let Afghanistan take care of itself. Our continued presence will only provoke more death and destruc-

tion. Can we really blame Iran for wanting to develop its own nuclear weapons program? Other nations have nuclear arms, and not all of those nations are friendly toward us. Sadly, we live in a world where all nations hold it necessary to have some sort of military program, equipped with both offensive and defensive weaponry. In truth, they have little choice. It has been so throughout recorded history. Whether it be person against person, clan against clan, city against city, state against state, nation against nation, weapons of destruction are a priority. Regardless of how much we may wish it were not so, it is so. And every nation that can gather the resources to do so will add to its arsenal. We can hardly expect Iran to do otherwise. The men who drew up the founding documents of this nation understood the necessity of separation of church and state. The long centuries of church-dominated history left a record that they felt they could not ignore. They wisely proclaimed that there would be no national religion. All were to be free to follow the dictates of individual conscience. That there are those in this country today who would have us do otherwise, who would have us conform to their particular ideas of morality and live by their particular set of values should give us pause and cause us to think deeply as to what living by such imposed standards would mean. Put me down as sounding a resounding “NO!” We have come too far to allow ourselves to be set back by over a century and a half. To be sure, changes are inevitable in life. Some for the better, some not. The key to making changes, though, should always be that the changes are carefully thought through to their logical consequences. An old proverb goes “To change and to improve are not the same thing.” As the title of this article says, Jus’ Thinkin’.

Help save a baby’s life: Please support Senate Bill 348 with a call To the editor: It is with great excitement that I ask for your support on a matter that affects families in our great state of New Hampshire: NH Senate Bill 0348 “Parker’s Law”- A bill ensuring all newborns will be screened for critical congenital heart defects with the use of pulse oximetry before they are discharged from the hospital. Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are structural abnormalities of the heart that are present at birth. CHDs range in severity from simple problems such as holes between chambers of the heart, to severe malformations, such as the complete absence of one or more chambers or valves. Some critical CHDs can cause severe and life-threatening symptoms which require intervention within the first days of life. Congenital Heart Defects are the number one birth defect in our nation- affecting approximately 40,000 children per year or 1 in 100 births. Congenital Heart Defects are the number one cause of birth defect related deaths and have the highest mortality rate of all birth defects. It is estimated that 4,000 children born with CHD will not live to see their first birthday. As a mother of two children I, like so many others, had never heard of Congenital Heart

Disease until our family was directly impacted. Throughout our journey with CHD I have learned about a simple, inexpensive and noninvasive screening tool called pulse oximetry. A pulse oximeter is a simple band aid style instrument that wraps around a newborn’s foot and measures the amount of oxygen in the blood. The test takes less than a minute and is painless. When performed on a newborn after the first 24 hours of life this screening is proven to be effective at detecting critical, life-threatening CHDs which may otherwise go undetected by current newborn screening methods. The cost of a pulse oximetry test is less than $10 and many hospitals don’t charge for the service because billing costs are more expensive than the test itself. New Jersey, Maryland and Indiana recently became the first states to enact legislation requiring the use of pulse oximetry screening for newborns. There are grass-roots efforts in at least forty other states. New Hampshire is one of them. With a lot of hard work (and a little bit of luck) Senator Jack Barnes agreed to sponsor SB 348 “Parker’s Law,” named after Parker Bolton who was born with a CHD known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). Parker spent his first three months in the hospital and before the age see SB348 page 5

Berlin Recreation Department thanks Brian Boucher To the editor: Berlin Recreation Mites Hockey just finished their 12 week season of instruction and games. This letter is to thank Mr. Brian Boucher for coming forward to volunteer his time and talent every Monday night ensuring 19 children learned the game of hockey in an enjoyable and fun atmosphere. Teaching children with various

skating experience and an age range of five to 11 is a daunting task but Brian and his assistants skillfully managed the program week after week.

Gorham common a town treasure, get out and enjoy To the editor: After a long cold winter, activities will soon begin on the Gorham Common. For a small town, the common has a lot to offer to people of all ages. A fine baseball field, which even has a batting cage! A tennis court which is usually occupied on a warm summer day. There is also a large Memorial Plaque honoring our veterans. The Gorham Public Works always does a wonderful job of taking care of the grounds. We have a carnival every year which usually fills up the park. Concerts and flea markets are pre-

sented during the summer months. The kid’s section and swing sets have had many parents spending a lot of time with their children. There is also an information booth for the tourists. The moose tours are quite popular for people of all ages. I have talked to some tourists who have never seen a moose. This is a great opportunity for them. Yes, the seasons come and go. There is a large clock on top of the town hall which is one of Gorham’s oldest fixtures. Oscar Patry Gorham

If it was Nov. 6, already we could vote these bums out To the editor: I am tired of legislators in Concord not listening to the people who elected them. We lost thousands of jobs cut in the state budget last year. We have wasted months and my taxpayer dollars waiting for Speaker O’Brien to finally let the right-to-work veto override fail. I am tired of the attacks on workers that are coming back for the second year. Doesn’t the Republican leadership have better ideas than trying the same old tactics over and over again? I am tired of the games that the

Speaker plays to hide the fact that he has no better ideas. He governs by blunt force and political games instead of consensus. This year he is pushing three right-to-work bills in the hopes that at least one of them will get through. I wish that it were November 6, already and we could vote these bums out. Until then, our only hope is that the legislators who have stood with us will continue to stand up for New Hampshire’s working families. Norm Provencher Gorham

of two and a half he underwent three open heart surgeries. Because of early intervention and excellent medical care, Parker is expected to lead a normal life. Although he still has to undergo more surgeries and may need a full heart transplant in the future, he has proven to be a very resilient and happy child. On January 19, Parker’s mom Casey and I (along with several others) spoke before the Senate in support of “Parker’s Law.” The Bcll was favored by the Senate (20-4) and on March 12th was presented to the House Health and Human Services Committee. The committee is expected to vote on the bill on Tuesday, March 27th. I am asking you, the citizens of the great state of New Hampshire to please reach out and call any member of the HHS Committee to express the need for this legislation in New Hampshire. There are currently

tion of two officers plus the loss of an additional 3.5 officers funded by outside grants. He referred to the letter submitted to the council by the police commission, stating that a zero budget increase would restrict the availability of law enforcement and decrease public safety. “The repercussions of a reduction to public safety services would be sensed immediately, and the impact would affect the community on many levels. The commission would be negligent to endorse a budget to that end,” the letter read. Commissioner Jerry Nault represented the commission at the meeting. Morency said he believes Berlin has one of the best police departments in the state and said the department works hard to attract outside grants. In 2013, the budget anticipates receiving $289,976 from grants. From 2005 -2012, the chief said his department has received $1.67 million in grants. The proposed budget includes a two percent wage increase for all personnel – the department did not receive a wage increase in fiscal 2012. In addition the budget provides for increases due to promotions and time-in-grade increases. Morency noted that benefits, including health insurance, retirement, social security, workers compensation, and unemployment compensation, went up a total of nine percent or $70,879. The cost of utilities is expected to increase by just over $5,000 to $27,830. Morency pointed out the police budget covers fuel oil expenses for the entire building including the Berlin Recreation side. While total calls for service were about the same in 2011 as the number in 2012, Morency said misdemeanors,thefts, vandalism and criminal mischief calls were up. Felonies, burglaries, sexual assaults, DWI, and assaults were down. Mayor Paul Grenier said he has the utmost respect for the police department and said he believes they

do a fantastic job. “I firmly believe in a strong police presence,” he said. Councilor Mike Rozek also praised the work of the department. He said the force provides a shroud of safety for the community. At the same time, Grenier said the raising the property tax rate discourages new housing starts in the city. The budget as proposed by the city manager calls for a $.42 increase in the tax rate. He said the city needs to find a way to maintain the current police force by looking outside the box at avenues to generate additional revenue to compensate for the $126,116 increase. He told Morency the council will be looking at the department's 2012 fiscal surplus as a way to fund some of the 2013 increase. Morency warned the current budget is tight and he is not anticipating a big surplus. “We will do what we can,” he said. On the capital improvement side of the budget, the department is seeking two new cruisers at a cost of $58,600, $20,000 to replace old radios, and $5,000 for in-cruiser cameras. Through some rearranging of requests, the council noted there was about $12,000 available that councilors suggested could be used to purchase a camera for the new Bickford Park that would tie into the police department. Councilors Diana Nelson and Peter Higbee, who both sit on the Berlin Industrial Development and Park Authority, said there is a camera at the park that records activity there but the camera does not feed into the police station. The pair noted BIDPA originally planned to install one but it was dropped to keep the cost of the park and building renovations within budget. Nelson said vandalism at the park is a concern of the authority. Morency said he had priced one when the park was constructed and the price was about $15,000. He said he would check on current prices and get back to the council. see COUNCIL page 7

robbery, while out on bail on the state charges. Hufstetler had been held on $25,000 cash bail since his arrest for the Nov. 14 armed robbery at Guardian Angel Credit Union, on the city’s East Side. He posted that bail on March 8. Berlin Police Department’s Emergency Response Team had been training in the area Hufstetler was COUNCIL from page 6

and get back to the council. Christopher Dubey of BEMS discussed the $246,000 subsidy his company is scheduled to receive in fiscal 2013 to provide ambulance service to the city. City Manager Patrick MacQueen noted the city is in the final year of a five year contract with BEMS and under the terms of the contract the subsidy increases $6,000 annually. Dubey said BEMS provides around the clock coverage with at least one paramedic on duty at all times. He said he does not know of any other community Berlin's size in the state that has full-time paramedic coverage. “You can not get a higher level of service than that,” he said. Dubey said there is always one crew on duty and most times there are two crews. He said the $6,000 increase will be used to cover raises for his employees who have not had a raise for three years. BEMS's annual report shows it responded to 1,640 calls in 2011, up We Deliver!

expected to be in on Thursday and were brought in to execute the arrest warrant. His vehicle was stopped on Route 16 in Milan near the Berlin town line and he was taken into custody without incident, according to Berlin Police. As of late Thursday afternoon, police planned to transport Hufstetler to the Merrimack County House of Corrections, for arraignment Friday, March 23, in Federal Court. from 1570 in 2010. The report notes a drop in emergency calls from 675 to 630. The company is expecting an increase in demand when the federal prison opens and the report states the company is prepared to handle that increase. Dubey said he has not received the new Medicare rates which were scheduled to be released at the end of January. Once the rates are released, Dubey said his company will seek to adjust its billing rates to capture additional revenue. Questioned about the level of bad debt his company carries, Dubey noted his company is required to provide service without consideration of the patient's ability to pay. He said 32 percent of its billing is uncollected, accounting for over $1 million in bad debt. Grenier said BEMS provides a very valuable service to the city and noted the city could not provide the service for the $246,000 subsidy.

PINKHAN NOTCH -- Every year, around the middle of March, the steep slopes and gullies of Tuckerman Ravine begin to see more and more traffic. Skiers, snowboarders, hikers, and spectators begin to show up in large numbers. They’re drawn in by the lure of warm sunny days, spring “corn snow,” and some of the steepest and most reliable spring ski terrain in the eastern United States. However, this season has been different than most in recent memory due to a shallow snowpack and the latest warm spell advancing springtime conditions much faster than usual. Snow Rangers from the U.S. Forest Service Mount Washington Avalanche Center are warning visitors in the coming weeks to be prepared for conditions similar to what would normally be expected in late April or May. Each month this winter, snowfall has been well below average, providing a thin snowpack at the onset of the spring ski season. This, coupled with record breaking heat, has snow rangers advising visitors to expect an acceleration of typical springtime hazards. These hazards include falling ice, undermined snow, and crevasses, but they can also include avalanches if a late season snowfall event occurs. According to Jeff Lane, falling ice is one of the most dangerous hazards in Tuckerman each spring. “We want people to understand that we’re not talking about the ice you put into your Ginger Ale. The blocks of ice that fall can be as large as a school bus, and they can explode into thousands of pieces flying in every direction when they hit

rocks.” Over the years Lane and other snow rangers have seen falling ice severely injure and kill a number of people. “The worst case scenario is having people sitting at Lunch Rocks when the ice above crashes through it. People can watch all the action from a much safer location farther down in the Bowl,” he says. Although Lunch Rocks has been a traditional place to sit for a snack or lunch, hence its name, this area has been the number one accident location in the Ravine over the decades. Christopher Joosen, one of Lane’s fellow snow ranger’s believes a better name for the rock jumble would be “Icefall Rocks”. In addition to falling ice, undermined snow and crevasses present challenges and risk for backcountry skiers as well. Crevasses are formed when the winter snowpack slowly creeps downhill, pulling away from the slope above. Undermining occurs when water melts the underside of the snow, creating a hollow space that people might fall into. When these spaces are above a stream or close to rock ledges the consequences can be severe. The snow rangers advise visitors to stay away from the edges of crevasses and undermined areas. The holes beneath the snow can be much larger than the visible opening. The White Mountain National Forest operates the Mount Washington Avalanche Center from each Fall to the following Spring each year. For more information about current conditions or springtime hazards, visit www.mountwashingtonavalanchecenter.org or call the Androscoggin Ranger District at 603-466-2713.

Dylan Gingues MISSING from page one

Gingue's half-sister. He told police that he had followed them and saw Gingue drop the girls off at the sister's home and leave. Couture also called Giglio to let her know what was going on. Giglio confirmed that her daughter had spent the night at her friend Sara's house and then came home on Wednesday morning, telling her mother she was getting ready for school. A while after the teen left, Giglio said, she realized she had taken some of her belongings with her and that is when she called police to report her missing. Then came the text messages. Giglio said Katelyn sent her a few text messages and then her phone “was turned off,” leaving no way to communicate with her daughter. The first text was the most troubling, Giglio said. “I'm sorry, don't hate me, but I can't come home,” is what she received from her daughter. She's afraid her daughter is being controlled by Gingue or is physically afraid of him. “We're pretty concerned. It's mainly (for) her safety,” Giglio said. She explained that in addition to the violence, Gingue had a history of telling Katelyn that her parents are too controlling and has broken her phone in the past to prohibit her from communicating with them. For now, with no communication, Giglio has done some detective work on her own. She contacted police in Bellows Falls, Vermont, where Gingue's mother lives and even contacted his mother by phone. Gingue's mother said she hadn't seen the couple, according to Giglio. She also checked with the management at the Town and Country Motor Inn, where Gingue had a long-term rental. They told her it appeared he had removed his belongings from the room, she said. While Vermont seemed the most likely option, Giglio said the kids could be headed anywhere, including North Dakota, where they had talked about going when Katelyn turned 18, which is in just a few weeks. “But I don't know for sure,” Giglio said. “It all depends on what plan they came up with.” The volatile relationship between the two is what really concerns Giglio, who said she believes her daughter is in over her head. “She's definitely in danger,” she said. He has her convinced that her parents just want to control her and that he's the only one that loves her, Giglio said. Katelyn's parents hope to find her so she can get Katelyn some help and realize she doesn't have to let not to let people treat her that way. “I just want to get her home safe.” According to Berlin Police, N.H. State Police were notified and are now also involved in the investigation. Friends of the family have helped in their own way too. A "Missing" poster has been circulated on social networking sites like Facebook. Gingue is believed to be driving a green pickup truck with Vermont plates.

FRUSTRATION from page one

possession of a controlled drug. Under the terms of the plea bargain agreement, the felony charges were dropped and Labonville was allowed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of theft. He was given a suspended sentence of 90 days in jail, fined $350, and ordered to make restitution of $1,623. He was also barred from entering the Berlin Rite Aid store. Morency said he upset that Labonville was not required to serve any jail time. The chief said he felt the plea bargain sent out the message that someone could come to Berlin, walk into a local store, demand drugs, and get away without any jail time when apprehended. The chief said he was also extremely frustrated that the case against Sheena Craig, whom police accused of being the getaway driver in the November robbery at Guardian Angel Credit Union, was dismissed without prejudice by Coos County Superior Court because the County Attorney’s office failed to indict her within 90 days.

At the time of the alleged robbery, the 29-year old Craig lived with Daniel Hufstetler, 32, of Berlin. Hufstetler has been indicted on a count of robbery, alleging he displayed a handgun, demanded money, and then fled the scene in a dark blue Cavalier driven by a woman who fit Craig’s description. Morency said he understands the U.S. Attorney’s office is looking into the case and may file federal charges. The chief said he thought Berlin police had done a good job investigating both crimes and filing charges. “They were good cases,” he said. Morency said he met with County Attorney Robert Mekeel and discussed the two cases. He said he stressed that if the county attorney has issues with Berlin cases and needs more evidence or testimony, Mekeel should contact the department. Since the meeting, Morency said changes have been made and law enforcement has seen some improvement. He said he will be meeting again with Mekeel on March 29. Grenier said he finds it appalling that after police

invest time and effort into prosecuting a case, the judicial system sends the criminals back on the street. He said currently many accused criminals spend time in jail under pre-trial confinement, only to be released once they are sentenced. Morency agreed it is not uncommon today for criminal defendants to spend more time in jail under pretrail confinement than they do after sentencing. In his position as county commissioner, Grenier has publicly clashed with Mekeel who filed suit against the county over the inadequacy of his office space in the Coos County Courthouse in Lancaster. After a Superior Court judge sided with Mekeel, the county rented space for his office in the former Lancaster National Bank building. The county has since reached an agreement with the state to rent new space in the courthouse and Mekeel will be moving back into the courthouse once renovations are completed. Earlier this year, Grenier announced he will actively work against Mekeel’s re-election should the county attorney decide to run again.

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis influence counts for more than you think it does. Therefore, it will be important to cast your vote, whether it be in the form of money, a political vote or a testimony. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are thoughts that distract you repeatedly and for good reason. There’s something important that your subconscious needs to tell your conscious mind, and you’ll benefit from figuring it out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A past event is on your mind. You initially had a strong reaction, but those intense feelings have faded. You’re almost ready to accept the situation and move past it. This afternoon you’ll feel noticeably lighter. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Out of sheer compassion, you’ll come up with ways to help the people who have been affected by unfortunate circumstances, even though you had nothing to do with the creation of those circumstances. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Take advantage of the improved sense of focus you have now. You deserve it. Your concentration is good because your conscience is clean and you hold no ill feelings or grudges against anyone. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 23). To celebrate your birthday, you’ll seal a deal and start a new chapter. The next 10 weeks bring many laughing hours with friends. April features romantic intrigue. A summer training program or educational pursuit will be rigorous. It all pays off when you find a way to make money with very little effort at the end of the year. Libra and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 32, 10, 8 and 35.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are a leader, and being a leader requires a certain amount of audacity. You’ll make claims and assessments. You’ll direct people. You’ll take responsibility for the good (and bad) that comes of your direction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There’s a vast landscape of knowledge inside you, and you’ll be trimming, weeding and planting new seeds there today. In the evening, people want more from you. You’ll be asked to give your word. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s a fire in your belly as you approach an exciting prospect. Something like this doesn’t come along every day. Then again, if you don’t make your mark today, tomorrow will offer you another chance. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will bring people together. The ones who resist your direction don’t know how wise you are. The ones who heed your advice will be forever changed by the connection they make because of you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The luxuries you experience are organic. If you have to pay for it, it doesn’t count as one of life’s great gifts. You’re able to feel -really feel -- the grandeur of nature now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your relationships are so important to you that you are willing to subvert your own interests in order to promote the interests of a friend. Temporarily, that is. Eventually, you’ll have to come back to what (SET ITAL) you (END ITAL) want. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may drift in the morning, unsure of where you should put your attention and why. But the afternoon brings clarity. You’ll know what matters most. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your

DOUBLING UP AT CEMETERY MAKES ROOM FOR HUSBAND’S TWO WIVES

DEAR ABBY: Years ago I lost my beautiful wife. We had been married for more than 30 years. I bought a plot at the cemetery for both of us, and she’s buried there now. I have since remarried and have been blessed with another wonderful wife. There are no spaces left next to the existing plot, although I would like to be placed between both my wives when the time comes. Any recommendations? -- MR. IN-BETWEEN DEAR MR. IN-BETWEEN: You have a couple of options. One would be to ask if your cemetery permits “double-depth” burials, in which one vault is placed on top of another. Or, if you wish, upon your demise you could choose cremation for yourself and have your ashes divided and placed with both wives. I discussed your question with a wonderful lady, Lisa Carlson, executive director of the Funeral Ethics Organization. She’s a mine of commonsense information on the subject of death and funerals -- a subject many people find difficult to discuss. Lisa reminded me that years ago, funerals were handled at home and by the community, and children grew up understanding what would happen when a death occurred. However, as we turned death over to funeral directors, much of that common knowledge has been lost. The average adult plans only one funeral in a lifetime, and few schools teach us what our choices and rights are -- or how to save money on funerals. Readers, the Funeral Ethics Organization publishes free,

state-specific pamphlets on the subject of funeral consumer rights. To download one for your state, visit its website, funeralethics.org, or send a business-size SASE to Funeral Ethics Organization, 87 Upper Access Road, Hinesburg, VT 05461, for a print version. DEAR ABBY: I recently married my boyfriend of five years. Our marriage is only a few months old, and we’re not happy. My husband is sweet, but he is absolutely the world’s worst communicator. He’s an introvert and has a “whatever” attitude about everything. He tells me he can’t put his feelings into words. So how can we fix any of our problems? We also constantly fight about our sex life. I’d appreciate it at least weekly. He doesn’t care if we do “it” or not. I have voiced my concern about our sex life, but it doesn’t seem to help. I feel rejected and hurt, and I crave this attention from my husband. I’m an affectionate and attractive young woman -- so what gives? -- NEEDS ATTENTION IN DALLAS DEAR NEEDS ATTENTION: Was your husband this way during the five years you were together before the wedding? If he was, you shouldn’t have gone through with it because people don’t magically change after a trip to the altar. If he was passionate, attentive and verbal but now has withdrawn, ask him a simple question: “Do you still want to be married to me?” If he can’t answer that one, it’s time to ask yourself an important question: “Am I better off with him or not?” If the answer is no, accept the fact that it’s time to end the marriage.

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

White Mountains Community College workers receive contract approval CONCORD -- The Board of Trustees of the Community College System of NH (CCSNH) voted unanimously recently to ratify the 2012 – 2013 Collective Bargaining Agreement between CCSNH, which includes White Mountains Community College, and the State Employees’ Association (SEA). This contract had been accepted and approved by the affected employees by an overwhelming majority last week. “Both sides worked hard for the past ten months and have hammered out a fair and responsible contract that the bargaining team stands behind,” said Becky Clerkin, library director at Great Bay Community College and member of the SEA Negotiating Team. “While it would have been nice if we could have brought our compensation up to the same level as the other New England Community Colleges and had no increase to the health insurance, that is not realistic in these economic times. This is a contract that I can be comfortable standing up in front of my colleagues to say, it is fair and reasonable.” Other negotiating team members include Dana Mosher, Jeff Schall, Nancy Marashio, Wendy Parent, Toni Theberge, and Eileen Fitzsimmons.

They each represent a different college in the system. “This agreement is another important step forward for the CCSNH and SEA members at each college,” said Diana Lacey, president of SEA. “The team is to be commended for their dedication to their colleagues throughout the system.” In addition to White Mountains Community College, CCSNH includes Great Bay Community College, Manchester Community College, Lakes Region Community College, Nashua Community College, River Valley Community College, NHTI-Concord, and the System Office. Clerkin acknowledges that the schools’ staff and faculty are ready to move forward and get down to the business of teaching. “Time after time, we help people change their lives,” she said. “We have the ability to work closely with students of all ages and backgrounds helping them to build their skills and their confidence.” Changes to the workers’ wages and health insurance will take effect May 4, 2012; all other changes go into effect immediately. The contract will be in effect until June 30, 2013.

The Marshall Inurance Agency is a full service agency, offering complete insurance services in New Hampshire and Vermont

BERLIN -- Northway Bank and their TrueNorth Travel Club are presenting a free workshop titled Too Young to Retire: Rebalance and Recharge the Rest of Your Life. It is geared toward people over 50 who are unsure about what comes next. The free interactive workshop will help attendees re-frame the next phase of life by exploring “encore” opportunities that get away from the idea of a “traditional” retirement. The workshop will discuss money, work on your terms, volunteering, unique travel, learning opportunities and more. Betsy Gemmecke, the workshop presenter, will offer new ideas to spark your imagination and help you to clearly focus on what is most important to you. Betsy Gemmecke, MSW, is a “Too Young to Retire” certified facilitator of a six-week retirement planning course, and a certified professional career development coach, with over 30 years of experience in counseling,

education, and career development. She initiated the Conway Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Granite State College and is a graduate of the 2011 NH Senior Leadership Series sponsored by AARP. “For many people, the idea of a traditional retirement seems less appealing or attainable,” said Pam Shyne, Northway’s TrueNorth Travel Club coordinator. “This workshop offers a new perspective on what retirement can look like and how different opportunities you may never have thought of can give you a retirement full of joy, meaning and fun!” The workshop will be offered free of charge at three different times and locations: April 21, in Concord from 10 a.m.- to 2 p.m., April 26 ,in Berlin from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., and May 3, in Plymouth from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. To register, contact Pam Shyne at 603-752-1171 or 1-800-442-6666 ext 2696, or by email at pshyne@northwaybank.com.

“Without the generous support of organizations such as Laconia Savings Bank, we would not be able to continue the valuable work that we do here at Tri-County CAP to support the residents of New Hampshire,” stated Joe Costello, chief executive officer for the Tri-County CAP. Laconia Savings Bank, founded in 1831, provides deposit, lending and wealth management services to families and businesses throughout New Hampshire. With 21 community offices within the state and assets exceeding $1 billion, Laconia Savings Bank is the largest independent bank in New Hampshire. Because Laconia Savings Bank is a mutual organization, it doesn’t answer to stock holders and can focus on the success of its customers, communities and employees. Throughout its 180 year history, Laconia Savings Bank continues to be a strong and stable financial organization. For more information, call 1-800-832-0912 or visit www.laconiasavings.com.
