BERLIN— After receiving letters and care packages during his deployment to Kuwait, one National Guardsman got to meet his benefactors Wednesday. Sergeant Dan Morel, of the National Guard, visited Hillside Elementary students in Heidi Holt’s third grade class and Mary Williams’ fifth grade class Wednesday
afternoon to thank them for sending him care packages and letters from the students during his deployment. “It was really cool,” said Morel. He added it’s great to see that the kids care about the people stationed in other countries. Morel visited the students and fielded their questions about what it’s like to be stationed in the Middle East. see GUARDSMAN page 6
Berlin man indicted for assaulting officer
LANCASTER—A Berlin man was indicted last week by the grand jury for assaulting a police officer last year. Christopher Parr, 32, of Berlin, was indicted for second-degree assault and simple assault for allegedly slamming Corporal Luc Poulin’s hand in a doorway. The charges state that by slamming the door on Poulin’s hand, Parr caused both lacerated and fractured his finger. Both charges stem from a December 2010 incident where Poulin and Corporal Nathan Roy responded to a noise complaint Parr reported, according to police. Poulin and Roy entered Parr’s apartment to hear the noise levels coming from a neighboring apartment. When they were leaving the apartment, Poulin was standing in the doorway, with his hand on the door frame, when Parr alleged slammed the door on his hand. Police say the force of the door nearly amputated Poulin’s finger. Police later arrested Parr for simple assault. Parr was among the 19 people indicted last week by the grand jury. Roger Dana, 37, of West Stewartstown, was indicted on two counts of receiving stolen property. The charges allege that Dana knowingly received a number of guitars, which belonged to two other men, knowing or believing the guitars had been stolen. David Glidden, 22, of Dalton, was indicted for driving after being certified a habitual offender. The charge alleges that Glidden was found opersee INDICTED page 5

James Steele, of North Country Council, provided the department with the equipment to count the vehicles, said Cyr.
During the detail, Cyr said the counter logged 1,146 vehicles heading northbound, 1,380 vehicles heading southbound and 591 vehicles heading westbound. Out of those vehicles, Cyr said 15 summonses for red light violations were issued; seven written warnings for red light violations were issued; one sum-

Elizabeth Taylor dies at 79 (NY Times) — Elizabeth Taylor, the actress who dazzled generations of moviegoers with her stunning beauty and whose name was synonymous with Hollywood glamour, died Wednesday in Los Angeles. She was 79. A spokeswoman at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center said Ms. Taylor died at 1:28 a.m. Pacific time. Her publicist, Sally Morrison, said the cause was complications of congestive heart failure. Ms. Taylor had had a series of medical setbacks over the years and was hospitalized six weeks ago with heart problems. In a world of flickering images, Elizabeth Taylor was a constant star. First appearing on screen at age 9, she grew up there, never passing through an awkward age. It was one quick leap from “National Velvet” to “A Place in the Sun” and from there to “Cleopatra,” as she was indelibly transformed from a vulnerable child actress into a voluptuous film queen. In a career of more than 70 years and more than 50 films, she won two Academy Awards as best actress, for her performances as a call girl in “Butterfield 8” (in 1960) and as the acidtongued Martha in “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” (in 1966). Mike Nichols, who directed her in “Virginia Woolf,” said he considered her “one of the greatest cinema actresses.”

Allies pressuring Qaddafi forces
WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Having all but destroyed the Libyan air force and air defenses, the allies turned their firepower Wednesday on the military units loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi that are besieging rebel-held cities. “We are interdicting and putting pressure on Qaddafi’s forces that are attacking population centers,” said Rear Adm. Gerard Hueber, the chief of staff for the operational command,
speaking by audio link to reporters at the Pentagon. Loyalist forces have surrounded two rebelheld cities in the west, Zintan and Misurata, and the strategic eastern city of Ajdabiya, and cut off telecommunications, electricity and water. They typically send soldiers backed by tanks and missile launchers into the cities by day and withdraw at night, while posting snipers on the rooftops.
In Misurata. allied airstrikes forced Colonel Qaddafi’s forces to pull back their armor and artillery temporarily on Wednesday, but by 8:30 p.m. local time they had renewed their attacks, residents said. In a hurried satellite telephone call, Aiman, a doctor at the Misrata medical center, said Colonel Qaddafi’s tanks were again moving through the city and firing shells that were landing as close as 20 yards from the hospital door.
Tokyo says radiation in Soldier admits killing water puts infants at risk three Afghan civilians TOKYO (NY Times) — Radioactive iodine detected in Tokyo’s water supply prompted Japanese authorities on Wednesday to warn that infants in Tokyo and surrounding areas should not drink tap water, adding to the growing anxiety about public safety posed by Japan’s unfolding nuclear crisis. Ei Yoshida, head of water purification for the Tokyo water department, said at a televised news conference that iodine 131 had been detected in water samples at a level of 210 bec-
querels per liter, about a quart. The recommended limit for infants is 100 becquerels per liter. For adults, the recommended limit is 300 becquerels. The announcement prompted a run on bottled water at stores in Tokyo and a pledge from the authorities to distribute bottled water to families with infants. Prime Minister Naoto Kan said earlier Wednesday that the public should avoid additional farm produce from areas near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.
JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, Wash. (NY Times) — A soldier facing a court-martial on Wednesday admitted to killing three Afghan civilians as part of a conspiracy to kill for sport. “The plan was to kill people, sir,” the soldier, Specialist Jeremy N. Morlock, told a military judge at this base south of Seattle. Specialist Morlock, one of five soldiers accused of killing the Afghans near Kandahar last year, had previously agreed in court documents to testify against the other defendants in exchange for his plea. He is seeking a maximum of 24 years in prison. A military judge still must approve the agreement. Specialist Morlock, 22, of Wasilla, Alaska, is the first of the five soldiers to face a court-martial. He pleaded guilty on Wednesday to three charges of premeditated murder, conspiracy to commit murder, assault and other charges.

Tough time for bed-and-breakfast operators; strong year for chain hotels
THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, March 24, 2011— Page 3
BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
BARTLETT — Earle Wason, of Wason Associates Hospitality Real Estate Brokerage Group of Portsmouth and Freedom, says it is a tough time for any business owner — particularly those who purchased bedand-breakfast inns during the height of the boom. “We are slowly working our way out and things are improving,” said Wason. “We are seeing a little light at the end of the tunnel in every aspect — there are more buyers out there, but there are still problem properties who have to work their way through. There were many properties purchased by people who paid too much and did not understand how to operate them." A case in point he said is the Snowvillage Inn, which was put up for foreclosure auction Jan. 21 but was taken back by the mortgage lender, Northway Bank, because the bank's opening bid was not matched, making short work for the auctioneer, according to a person who attended the auction. Last April, two formerly related, adjacent inn properties in Glen were sold at foreclosure: The Bernerhof Inn was sold for $295,000 to local Realtor Dick Badger of Badger Realty of North Conway, and the adjacent Red Apple Inn was sold for $500,000 to the Jan and Charless Filip family, owners of the nearby Story Book Inn in Glen. The renovated Bernerhof is now open as an inn only and no longer also operates as a restaurant. The Red Apple is expected to re-open this spring. “The bed-and-breakfast market is really struggling, because they paid too much and the market has changed, too. Consumer expectations have changed,” said Wason. He said the arrival of the Marriott Residence Inn on the Route 16 strip last year had two impacts. “The Residence Inn came into town and did well immediately. It was absorbed into the market in Year 1 — they created more market demand, because the other competitive properties — the Comfort Inn, the North Conway Grand, the Green Granite, the Holiday Inn Express, the Hampton Inn — all did better than they did in 2009.” But the downside, said Wason, was that the “ma and pa” motels did not do as well. “The demand grew for the other larger properties,” he said, “while at the same time, the smaller properties got hurt further.” So, while that does not come as good news for the older-styled motels, Wason says it does mean that “the town base is growing.” “It shows that there is a demand to be in Mount Washington Valley,”
The Marriott Residence Inn opened last year on the Route 16 strip. Other large hotels in the valley, the Comfort Inn, the North Conway Grand, the Green Granite, the Holiday Inn Express, the Hampton Inn reported they did better than they had in 2009. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO)
he said. He repeated an assertion by Dick Badger of Badger Realty and Bayard Kennett of RE-MAX Presidential that businesses need to always upgrade their properties to remain viable. An example of a longstanding hotel business making a huge upgrade in recent years was the Red Jacket Mountain View, which opened in the early 1970s, underwent renovations in the late 1990s, and which in 2008 added its Kahuna Laguna indoor water park. Chuck Randall, assistant general manager, said last month that the Red Jacket has experienced strong sales since that time. “Branding is what it is all about and the Red Jacket, while not part of a national chain, is an identifiable New England brand with a strong following, with our properties here and on the Cape,” said Randall, noting that the company also operates the nearby Fox Ridge Resort in North Conway during the warmer months. As for the impact of the national chains, Randall said, “The addition of the Marriott or others is taking just another slice of the pie by adding another 100 rooms or more. It has not had any significant impact on our business, but I would agree that it hurts the ma and pa motels more than us.” Wason said perhaps the local business community needs to have a forum on growth and how to deal with the influx of new national hospitality
businesses and restaurants into the region. “It seems,” he said, “that a lot of people get upset when the new and more up to date properties that the consumer demands come in to the valley as they get hurt. They are so myopic that they don't understand that they have to change and provide the consumer with what they want or else the consumer will go elsewhere. There are a lot of choices when it comes to resort communities."
Wason said March 21 that a sale was still pending regarding the Eagle Mountain House in Jackson, a landmark resoet which has been listed for sale by its board of directors. He repeated that the sale of the former Fandangle's 2.15-acre, commercially-zoned property near the juncture of Routes 302 and 16 at the base of the North Conway strip is also still pending. “We are working on signing an agreement [regarding Fandangle's],” said Wason.

The American Red Cross thanks you To the editor: I would like to thank the community of Berlin, and, in particular, everyone who donated or intended to donate blood at the recent American Red Cross blood drive, held at White Mountain Community College. When news of hundreds of cancelled blood drives throughout the country, due to this year’s continuing winter storms, reached the people of Berlin, you responded with characteristic generosity. Unfortunately, we did not have the ability to handle the overwhelming response which resulted from that generosity. With a limited number of staff available, many donors had to wait an inordinate amount of time or were unable to commit the time needed to complete their blood donation. The American Red Cross sincerely apologizes for the
inconvenience this may have caused for our dedicated blood donors and our committed blood drive sponsors. The next Red Cross blood drive is scheduled for Friday, April 1, at the White Mountains Community College. We hope to see you there and pledge to do everything we can to assure that this drive will run as smoothly as possible and in the manner our donors deserve. The winter storms caused a shortfall of 28,000 units of blood nationwide. Thanks to you, Berlin played its part in adding 107 units of lifesaving blood back into the inventory. Thanks to you, patients are now getting the blood they depend upon to survive. Jenn Bergeron Donor Recruitment Rep. American Red Cross Blood Services N. New England Region

Once upon a Berlin Time
Hello fellow Berlinites. After sharing the 1963 BHS hockey story with my readers, I thought that I would continue with the other news events that took place in Berlin back then. So, here goes. A great story about a young boy from Gorham made the news in the beginning of 1963. It seems like only one year before, little Gary Moreau was given just five years to live, but one year later, this eight year-old had a brighter future. It was all because of open heart surgery and this was something fairly new back in these days. Gary was born in 1954 with a heart murmur and his parents were told that he would probably never be able to take part in strenuous sports. Chief Paul Tremblay As he got older, young Moreau seemed to become more susceptible to diseases, so a check up was arranged for him at the Children’s Medical Center (Children’s Hospital today) in Boston. It was here that the doctors had made a sad discovery. The main valve in the heart that pumped blood to Gary’s body was too small, so the verdict was heart surgery or else. On February 8, 1962, the doctors performed the major operation. After five hours of being on the table, Gary made it, but not without a scare. Even though this operation was a success, the aftermath looked dim, as the young boy began to hemorrhage His parents were called to his bedside, for fear that he might not make it. After sixteen hours and two special transfusions, the boy’s body began to respond. He was now on the slow road to recovery. By 1963, Gary still couldn’t do all of the things that his playmates could. He was not supposed to run or play hard, but he could now do almost anything else. This young boy’s story came to light because his parents said he received more than thirty pints of blood thanks to the American Red Cross and it was free. Mr. and Mrs. Moreau urged everyone who was Gary Moreau physically able, to donate blood, because a full bank was a lifesaver for their son and could be for others. It has been 48 years since Gary’s story was made public and I wondered today, if this boy or man by now was still with us. Sadly, my research showed that sometimes in the late 1960s, tragedy struck this boy and he passed away, a story passed on to me by a family friend. It was announced at the end of January 1963, that Berlin Police Chief Herman Oleson would retire on April 1. Oleson became a
member of Berlin’s finest on November 22, 1921 and served as chief since May 1, 1955. Oleson said that he didn’t expect to make a career of police work when he joined the force. He had been a woodsman for the International Paper Company and a strike took place. This strike was very volatile back then and the police needed extra men. So, Oleson signed up for two weeks and stayed on for forty-two years. The chief said that in 1921, there were only one dozen officers on the force and that was a third of the amount in 1963. He also said that he worked eleven hours a day, seven days a week, when he first started. By the end of February 1963, the city of Berlin had decided on a new chief to replace Oleson. His name was Sergeant Paul Tremblay. Tremblay, who had been an officer since 1947, brought many qualifications that were so essential to a modern police force. His training included courses sponsored by the FBI and other departments. The police commission in 1963 was fully confident, that over the months, Tremblay would organize the present department along professional standards that would Chief Herman Oleson bring the city of Berlin an excellent program for the protection of life and property. It would also help in the preservation of peace and order, control and prevention of crime and vice, along with the regulation of traffic control. The latest chief was going to initiate five new programs. They were: 1. An intensification of internal training for department personnel in all phases of police working procedures. 2. A new hard look at enforcement of local traffic ordinances, so that accidents and traffic control would be improved. 3. The employment of modern methods and procedures in all phases of investigative work. 4. Greater emphasis on juvenile work. 5. An installation of modern record keeping system. I wonder how much of this the new chief was able to do, without interference of some sort. Finally, the long awaited St. Vincent De Paul Home was set to open, as guests began taking up residence in April of 1963. The Very Reverend Monsignor James R. McGrail, diocesan director, said that not all of the people had yet been selected to take up residence and applicant interviews were still taking place. At the time, this nursing home had facilities for seventy guests. This new facility had every convenience and was going to make every attempt to preserve the independence of the residents who would live here. They had kitchenettes, an automatic laundry and a beauty parlor. There were no visiting hours, so that the guests of the residents could come and go as they pleased. Incorporated into this home, were two large recreation rooms at the ends of the corridors on each floor. One was for reading and conversation and the other was for television, movies and games. A spacious front lawn would be equipped with chairs and tables for summer time see 1963 page 5

Morel has returned home from Kuwait on leave before continuing his deployment for another five to six months. Morel said he’s already there for four months. This was Morel’s first deployment with the National Guard, though he enlisted five years ago. The class sent care packages to Morel and a couple of other men for Christmas and Valentines but also sent personal letters, said Holt. She added they enjoy hearing about what happening over in the Middle East as much as the soldiers enjoy reading about what’s happening back home.

Morel isn’t the only serviceman the students correspond with, said Holt. She added they’ve also sent letters to Bruce Hamilton, whose daughter is in the class, and Carl Huot, another Berlin resident. Holt said the class got involved with sending the letters and packages because she had Morel’s son in her class two years ago and knows him and his family. She added her classroom aid is also a friend of the Morel family. As a teacher, Holt said she thought it would be good for the students to show support for the troops. Holt said it’s also a great experience for the kids
because they are finding out things that aren’t normally in the curriculum. “It’s a learning experience,” she said. Holt said she hopes the soldiers come to visit again and get home from their deployment safely. People think about the servicemen and woman a lot, said Holt. She added it’s important that as a community people to reach out and show them support. Meeting the students Wednesday was a chance to thank the students for the support. “It makes a huge impact on everyone over there,” said Morel.

Cody Haas won the New England Silver Mittens tournament, held two weeks ago in Lowell, Mass., in the 132 division. Haas stands with trained Dick Kimber following his tournament win. During the fight, Kimber said Haas stopped his opponent in the second round and went on to win the bout. A donation from Carl Mercier and Remax helped send Haas to the tournament. Kimber said Haas got some help from Jacob Plourde, Steven Beattie and Casey Mothot during training and sparring. Kimber said a lot of people help make it possible for these kids to go to these tournaments including Jeff Malick; Kerry Halle; Shirley and Henry, from Bodyline Fitness, let them use the gym for strength and fitness training; and Mike and Paul, from the Red Fox, supply them with a boxing ring in Jackson; Roger Villeneuve’s Heating Oil; and Sanschagrin Logging sponsor them. In May, Haas and Plourde will fight in a kickboxing tournament in Vermont. Kimber said he’s looking for support to help with the various programs and if anyone is interested to call 723-2659.

DETAIL from page one
mons for a tinted windows violation was issued; one child restraint violation was issued; one written warning for improper lane use was issued; and officers gave six verbal warnings for red light violations. Throughout the afternoon, Cyr said officers watched a lot of vehicles going through that stop light. Cyr said the detail came about because of complaints the department received about the unruly traffic going through intersection at the upper junction. Unlike other details conducted by police departments, which are normally grant funded, Cyr said this was initiated by the department in
response to complaints about the traffic at the intersection. During the detail, two officers set up at the lights while three others stopped vehicles further down along the three routes, said Cyr. He said the difference from someone receiving a summons versus a warning was based on the position of the vehicles, relative to the stop line, when the light was red. Since the department is running at full-staff, Cyr said it can now do more targeted enforcement and dedicate more attention to other issues in town. Looking forward to the summertime, Cyr said he sees the department doing more targeted traffic enforcement. “We’re going to do it more,” said Cyr.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will crave the feeling of winning. A touch of competitiveness can add texture to a relationship, but too much of it will ruin the delicate balance that exists in all friendships. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be a few invitations sent your way. Show up to them all if you can! There will be a benefit for you in every event. Plan to show up strong. A wardrobe update might be part of your preparation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will argue your point and argue it well. You may or may not gain the agreement of the other person, but at least you’ll give him something to think about. And this isn’t over -- not yet. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It has been illustrated in your life time and time again: No man is an island. You’ll need to work with others and give them what they need in order to attain what you need. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In your efforts to eradicate a personal flaw, you may very well be making it worse. Focus instead on what you do well and what you enjoy -- that’s when the problem will diminish. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 24). You will listen to your heart and follow its dictates. There’s never a dull moment in April, as your social life sparkles with excitement. Your clever resourcefulness will get you promoted (and perhaps even married) in June. Business deals strongly favor you in July and November. Sagittarius and Scorpio people are your adoring fans. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 2, 15, 35 and 42.
by Darby Conley
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s someone you want to impress, but you really don’t have to. You are already attractive to this person -- not despite all imperfections, but because of them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll touch base with a handful of friends. Being a social butterfly requires you to flit from one location to the next, which is so much easier to do when the conversation is light and upbeat. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have met some heavy emotional demands lately, and you may be feeling like you need a recharge. You already know the activities that will best facilitate your energy reboot, so go ahead with them. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s no surprise that you find yourself among those who love and need you. In your presence, they find a feeling of safety and acceptance. Refrain from trying to solve all their problems, though. Establish healthy boundaries. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll broaden your horizons by branching out socially. Consider participating in games in order to get to know people, make new friends and enjoy the perks of being on a team. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do not like to use pressure to get your way, and you find it distasteful that anyone else would do this to you or your loved ones. Avoid situations where you’re likely to be “hard sold.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You cannot possibly reach your goal without the cooperation of others. Do what it takes to restore the spirit of teamwork and camaraderie -- or create it where it never existed in the first place.

SOCIAL NETWORKS PUT PRIVATE BEHAVIOR ON PUBLIC DISPLAY
DEAR ABBY: “Heartbroken Teacher in Oakland, Calif.” (Jan. 14) did absolutely nothing wrong! He wrote a letter of recommendation based on his knowledge and impression of one of his students. That was all he could and should have done. He wasn’t obligated to do a background check or any kind of research. That is for the future employer to do if he/she chooses. I also teach, and would have done exactly the same as he did. It is shocking and sad to discover that one’s impression of a student was partially incorrect. Keeping secrets about past wrongdoings is nothing new. But social networking sites make the evidence of such behavior more accessible. This is an issue for our society to address. -- HELEN IN LOMPOC, CALIF. DEAR HELEN: I agree. And only time will tell how it will be resolved. That letter, from a teacher shocked to learn a respected student had posted inappropriate stories about herself online, generated tons of responses from both here and abroad. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I am a 25-year-old education student. I don’t have a social networking site, nor do I have any desire to create one. I don’t understand the importance of posting pictures and personal information on the Internet for all to see. My father, a computer programmer, taught me that once something is posted on the Internet, it’s there forever, regardless of whether it is deleted or not. When I ask classmates why they use a social networking site, the most common answer is, “To stay in touch with family and friends.” The last time I checked, the telephone was used for that reason. -- KIM IN ORADELL, N.J. DEAR ABBY: I am tired of living in a world that revolves around social networking sites. As a 20-something, I have friends who don’t think twice about what they post. They’ll tell the world anything -- from drug use, sex stories, their latest vandalism to their disgusting underage drunken escapades. They also include semi-nude photos of themselves because
they think it’s cute. I truly am ... ASHAMED OF MY GENERATION, RED OAK, TEXAS DEAR ABBY: As teachers, we never completely see the character of our students. I interact with them outside of the classroom, but only at lunch and in student groups. No matter how friendly I become with my students, I am always their teacher, so I can never fully know who they are, and I never assume that I do. When I write a recommendation, I can only comment on the person I was able to observe as their teacher (or rarely, mentor). My recommendation letters often mention my boundaries of perception, and I never go beyond that. Teachers shouldn’t fear the repercussions of their comments if they honestly state what they observed. -- CHRISTENSEN IN DAEGU, SOUTH KOREA DEAR ABBY: Employers managed for centuries without being able to learn a person’s life story at the click of a button. There’s a reason it’s called “social networking.” If we wanted our employers there, we’d invite them. Anyone who snoops uninvited is invading our privacy. My employer pays me for the time I am at work. The rest of the time, I should be free to do as I please. -- CHRISTOPHER IN COLUMBUS, OHIO DEAR ABBY: Years ago, we had a different definition of “friend.” A friend was a flesh-and-blood person with whom one visited face-to-face, not some image on an electronic screen. Before I’m branded an old fogy, let me say I realize social networking sites have advantages and disadvantages. In my youth -- and occasionally even now -- when I get together with friends, discretion is sometimes thrown to the wind. But if I decide to put the proverbial lamp shade on my head, it’s in the company of a chosen few. Why do the youth of today pride themselves in exposing their indiscretions? Do they really need a record of all the times they acted like a jackass? -- RATIONAL IN JOHNSTOWN, PA.

Courthouse evacuated for Hazmat situation
NASHUA — A decontamination area was set up at the Hillsborough County Superior Court on Wednesday when an envelope was found to contain a suspicious substance. Police said tests determined that the substance wasn’t dangerous, but they wouldn’t say whether it was a liquid or a powder. Nashua police and fire officials immediately isolated the people closest to the envelope, keeping them outside the building for hours. “We received a call of a suspicious substance here, in the courthouse,” said Nashua Fire Marshal Richard Wood. “We dispatched crews to investigate that call.” The envelope was opened in the clerk’s office. Investigators said the envelope was taken out of
the building and put near a trash bin, where hazardous materials crews took a close look at it. “Some of the items were put in a particular container to be tested at the state lab, where it currently is,” said police Lt. Michael Carignan. “The rest was kept in a sealed bag because we don’t know what that product is, but we were still able to maintain any evidence on the envelope.” Police kept the five people who were near the envelope when it was opened separate from others for some time until it could be determined that the substance wasn’t dangerous. Investigators said they are trying to determine who sent the envelope. “There’s potential criminal
threatening charges, depending on who it was addressed to or what the intent was of the person who sent it,” Carignan said. “There could be criminal charges, so we take it very seriously.” The emergency response came as two high-profile trials were under way on the second floor of the courthouse. But workers in the clerk’s office said the envelope had no obvious connection to the Christopher Gribble insanity trial or the Joshua Sprague murder trial. Those trials were delayed for a short time. Although the office was evacuated, the only people who took decontamination showers were rescue personnel. Everyone was allowed back in the building before noon. —Courtesy of WMUR
Jury hears recorded confession from Gribble
NASHUA — Jurors in the Christopher Gribble trial heard Gribble describe the death of a Mont Vernon woman in a taped confession with police made the day after the killing. Gribble has admitted killing Kimberly Cates and seriously injuring her 11-year-old daughter in a home invasion in Mont Vernon in October 2009, but he said he was insane at the time. The state began playing the seven-hour police interview Tuesday and continued Wednesday morning. In the portion of the recording played Tuesday, Gribble consistently denied that he had anything to do with the killing. State police Sgt. John Encarnacao led the interview, raising his voice at times and demanding answers from Gribble. “My God, what were you thinking as you were hacking away at her, hacking away at her, hearing her scream?” Encarnacao said. “Were you smiling?” Encarnacao told Gribble that the other suspects

were telling police what happened, and it was time for Gribble to come clean. “You’re lying,” Encarnacao said. “The evidence is on the field right now. It’s stacking up against you.” For some time, Gribble still insisted he had nothing to do with the home invasion and killing. “Why don’t you go find the creeps that did this and stop bugging me?” Gribble said during the interview. Investigators told Gribble that even if he didn’t confess, eventually they would be able to pin the crime on him because the daughter, Jaimie Cates, was still alive. “When that little girl sits on the stand and tells her story about how she witnessed mom getting killed and then they attacked her, the twelve jurors are going to sit there and they won’t have to think about it,” Encarnacao said. Once police provided more details about the killing that they learned from other suspects, Gribble’s tone changed from denial to confessional. He began giving a point-by-point description of the events of that night. Gribble described stabbing Kimberly Cates in the chest and then stabbing Jaimie in the chest when she jumped off the bed she was sharing with her mother while her father was away on business. At one point in the confession, Gribble showed a sort of sympathy for Jaimie, saying things would be difficult for her because she lived. “I’m kind of surprised she lived,” he said. “I kind of wish she died because now she’ll have to live with all that trauma, and I wouldn’t want that for anyone.” The jury then heard tape of Gribble leading police officers into the woods were the weapons were buried. The state has one more witness to call, and then the defense will then be able to call witnesses back for rebuttal. The state has the same opportunity, and then closing arguments will be presented. Court officials said the jury could get the case by Friday. —Courtesy of WMUR

'Aunt Murph' honored with surprise 90th birthday party Pierrette (“Aunt Murph”) Murphy
GORHAM -- Nieces and nephews of Pierrette (Morency) Murphy, better known as “Aunt Murph,” surprised her with a 90th birthday party on March 5. The party was held at the T&C in Shelburne and attended by approximately 46 of her relatives and friends. A rendition of “Dusty Roads,” to the tune of “Country Roads,” was played and sung by her nephew, Gary Pouliot, depicting the many trips each and every niece and nephew made to her camp every summer. Her niece, Colette (Pouliot) Hayward, presented an anecdote of the years with Aunt Murph and how everyone had the same memories of their days with her. A nephew-in-law, Don Boucher, thanked everyone for helping to cel-
ebrate this momentous occasion and talked about the many traits prevalent in the Morency clan.
