Woman rescued from Mount Jackson over the weekend could end up paying for her rescue BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CRAWFORD NOTCH — The woman searchers found near the summit of Mount Jackson on Sunday could wind up being charged for her rescue, even though the rescuers who found her credit her skill and preparedness for her survival. “She’s alive today because she was smart,” said Rick Wilcox, president of Mountain Rescue Service, the volunteer rescue service that found Julie Horgan. Horgan, 61, of Milton, Mass., spent Saturday night outside at almost 4,000 feet, but she was neither hypothermic nor frostbitten when searchers found her around 10 a.m. Sunday. The wind was blowing more than 70 mph and the

temperature was near zero that night. “It was pretty brutal. We were certainly anticipating some injuries,” said Alain Comeau, one of the three MRS rescuers who found Horgan Sunday morning. “It was a surprise to find her in good health. She was well equipped, she did everything right.” Horgan spent the night marching in place just below treeline. “You could see this track where she was stomping all night long,” said Steve Larson, another of the MRS members who found Horgan. “She was in much better shape than I would have been had I gone through what she went through.” Horgan’s plan, according to rescuers, was to go out for a day hike of Mount Jackson, a 4,052 foot peak south of Mount Washington on the Appala-

chian Trail. She climbed up the mountain from the west on a well-packed trail wearing double plastic boots and snowshoes. She had multiple layers of winter clothing but no overnight gear. She reached Mount Jackson’s summit in the afternoon, where she intended to turn around and return the way she came up before dark. Instead, she unwittingly wound up walking south along the Appalachian Trail, which was not packed, until she hit the trees. She searched in vain for the packed trail through the trees she’d come up on. Around 3:30 p.m. she called a friend using her cell phone. New Hampshire Fish and Game was notified at 3:40 p.m. Fish and Game sent officers to search for her after

GORHAM— The Gorham town hall auditorium will host its first performance since 2005 this weekend. The auditorium is ready to host productions and meetings after it’s been closed and under renovations for more than five years. After the Friday night concert, which the town is co-hosting with the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire, the town is starting to see the calendar for the venue filling up. “We’re really excited to have the space open and have so much interest from non-profits,” said Denise Vallee, director of finance and administration for the town. She added it’s great that the town can finally host events like this concert. The Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire and the town of Gorham will host a performance titled “The Nature of Dances and Dreams” a consee INTEREST page 6

Collectors draw the line at 1950s (NY Times) — Prop designers and dealers by trade, Kenyan Lewis and Grace Kelsey are collectors of early 20th-century Americana, objects that date, roughly, from the end of the Victorian era through the machine age. The line is drawn at the 1950s: “We don’t get into that stuff,” said Mr. Lewis, 39. He and Ms. Kelsey, 33, gave up their apartment on the Lower East Side in 2008, and now rent a house in Accord, N.Y., a hamlet about two and a half hours north of Manhattan. When they moved, their belongings filled two 26-foot moving trucks; they made an additional trip with one of the trucks, plus five more trips with a minivan. The contents included stacks of Popular Mechanics magazines from the 1930s and 1940s, vintage patterns and buttons, tube radios and old fans, camp blankets, books, decanters. Throughout the house, which dates from 1890, the new is scarcely evident, except in the office, where a worn 30-foot American flag is draped along a window near three computer workstations, and in the modestly sized attic, where a 73-inch TV looms like a drive-in movie screen. (Living in Accord, they don’t get out much, they explained; Netflix provides entertainment.)

Scores dead in blast at Yemen weapons factory

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

SANA, Yemen (NY Times) — An explosion at a weapons factory in southern Yemen Monday morning killed scores of people, according to a hospital in the southern city of Jaar. On Sunday, militants took over government buildings in Jaar, known as a Qaeda haven, as well as the nearby factory in the same province, Abyan. Some news reports said that the militants took some material and left, and that the explosion occurred after a fire broke out when others entered

to loot the factory. Some said a cigarette started the fire. “This accident is a true catastrophe, the first of its kind in Abyan,” said a doctor at the state-run hospital in Jaar, according to Reuters. “There are so many burned bodies. I can’t even describe the situation.” Responders were having difficulty identifying remains amid the chaos and destruction. Counts ranged from about 80 to more than 100. Some were to be buried in mass graves.

Japanese regulator: Contaminated water escaping nuclear plant Japanese

TOKYO (NY Times) — Highly contaminated water is escaping a damaged reactor at the crippled nuclear power plant in Japan and could soon leak into the ocean, the country’s nuclear regulator warned on Monday. The discovery poses a further setback to efforts to contain the nuclear crisis as workers find themselves in increasingly haz-

ardous conditions. In another new finding, Tokyo Electric Power Company, which runs the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power station, said late Monday that it had detected an increase in levels of plutonium in soil samples taken from within the compound a week ago, raising fears of yet another dangerous element that may be escaping the crippled reactors.

It was unclear where the plutonium had come from. The reactors could be a source, and tests of nuclear weapons in the atmosphere, which ended in 1980, left trace amounts of plutonium around the world. The highest levels in the soil, of plutonium 238, were found about 500 yards from the most heavily damaged reactors, the company said.

Rebel advance halted outside Qaddafi’s hometown

BIN JAWWAD, Libya (NY Times) — Rebel forces’ westward charge was repulsed on Monday by a barrage of tank and artillery fire from forces guarding one of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s most crucial bastions of support, while the American military warned on Monday that the insurgents’ rapid advances could quickly be reversed without continued coalition air support. “The regime still vastly overmatches opposition forces militarily,” Gen. Carter F. Ham, the ranking American in the coalition operation, warned in an e-mail message on Monday. “The regime possesses the capability to roll them back very quickly. Coalition air power is the major reason that has not happened.” The sober assessment came as President Obama prepared to address the nation on Monday night about the American role in Libya amid continuing questions about its objectives and duration.

Ill seal rescued in N.H.

PORTSMOUTH — Marine wildlife experts are hoping an underweight, possibly sick harp seal found in a New Hampshire marsh can be cured and released back into the ocean. The 200-pound, 5-foot seal was first noticed Friday in a marsh behind the Little Harbor School in Portsmouth. On Saturday, a New England Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue crew took the seal to the University

of New England in Biddeford, Maine, where it will undergo rehabilitation in hopes it can be released. The New England Aquarium’s Tony LaCasse told the Portsmouth Herald the seal was between 50 and 100 pounds underweight. Officials said if anyone sees a seal out of water for an extended time, they should call the aquarium’s marine animal center in Boston. —Courtesy of WMUR

Health and Human Services: Traces of radioactive material found in state CONCORD — A very low concentration of radioactive material, possibly from Japan, has been detected in snow in New Hampshire, state health officials said. The Department of Health and Human Services said radioiodine was found in a test area at HHS in Concord. The concentration was 40 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) — about half of what was detected in Massachusetts. New Hampshire health officials said the low amount of material represents no health threat. A sample of rainwater in Massachusetts showed the presence of radioiodine-131, but nothing was found in drinking water reservoirs. Health officials have been monitoring the possible spread of radioactive material from Japan as workers there struggle to bring under control nuclear reactors damaged in the recent earthquake and tsunami. New Hampshire Public Health Director Dr. Jose Montero said the amount measured was so low that it couldn’t be detected by the air radiation monitoring system in Concord. The material was found in snow that fell last week, and Montero said eventually finding some material from Japan was inevitable.

“After a release happens, we know we are going to find it here — it was a matter of time — and we just did,” he said. Health officials were able to link the specific material to the reactors in Japan. Montero said the radioiodine presents no threat to drinking water or food, and it has a short half-life, so it deteriorates quickly. On a normal day, the radio chemistry lab in Concord conducts routine tests of the seawater and soil around the nuclear power plant in Seabrook. Health officials said that at this point, there is no cause to step up testing, but should further releases of radioactive material occur at the Fukushima plant, that could change. “Certainly, we are going to keep looking, keep monitoring and keep informing the public if anything changes,” Montero said. Montero said there is also no threat to those most vulnerable to radiation -- infants and pregnant women. He said the concentration found is 25 times below the level that would be of concern for women and infants if they used that snow as their sole source of water over a short period of time. —Courtesy of WMUR

Latin 101

Botany was never my strong suit in prep school. Actually, I didn’t have any strong suits, not even one. I flunked my way through every subject and the school should have thrown me out, but they figured, Well, he comes from a good family, so he’ll come around. I never came around, I couldn’t even get a passing grade in subjects that I actually liked. One of those was Latin, and I did realize that if you don’t know Latin you can’t really know English, and I suspected that English could be very useful and practically every tree and plant in the world has a Latin name, which was about the only other thing I liked in prep school. So I paid attention. I had three years of Latin, and even though I failed my way through all the tests, the sentence structure and the vocabulary and the way Latin thinks stayed with me, and in the years since then hardly a day goes by when I don’t find some use for that language. I just couldn’t pass the tests that might have led a starchy prep school faculty to think that I might have some chance in life. All of which is to say that I can’t identify the small handful of slender greenish dried-out twigs that have been on the floor behind my wood stove ever since I moved in many years ago. They’re thicker than a soda straw but thinner than a common yellow pencil, they’re rigid, and they have nodes about eight inches apart. They might be related to the bamboo family, but that wasn’t covered in the botany class that

I flunked. I don’t actually care whether I know their Latin names or not, or remember why I left them behind my stove some time back, or even how I got them at all, it’s enough to remember that one of their very near relatives got me out of a very difficult spot one winter day in Switzerland. It was during one of my winters on the staff of the U.S. Women’s Alpine Ski Team, where one of my jobs was to do something or run an errand that no one else had time for. I didn’t mind that at all, partly because it was useful and partly because I never knew what was going to happen. For instance, and as I think I mentioned in a recent column, I picked up a hitch-hiker on one of the exit roads at the Munich airport and it turned out to be Sebastian Coe, who at than time held all the world records in middle-distance track events. On another errand I locked myself out of my car, which is almost always inconvenient and on a cold night in the Alps it can even be lifethreatening. I was not happy about this, partly because the team was counting on what I’d gone to get, and partly because I might not survive. Fortunately, I was in Switzerland, and there’s no such thing as a last chance in that country, something or someone will always turn up to fix whatever is wrong. In fact, that’s practically the national industry in Switzerland, whatever the problem might be, they can fix it. Even more fortunately, I was about a block see LATIN page

He was born in Berlin on March 5, 1928, the son of the late Frank A. and Beatrice (Derry) Oleson, and was a lifelong resident. He graduated from Berlin High in 1946 and was a US Army Veteran, having served in the Korean Conflict. Carl was an installer and repairman for New England Telephone and AT & T and retired in 1985 after 31 years of employment. He was a member of the White Mountain Post #2520 VFW, a former member of the Berlin Water Works Board of Commissioners and a member of the Androscoggin Valley Country Club. Carl enjoyed his home, where he took pride in his flowers, vegetable gardens and especially his hobby of model trains. Members of the family include his wife, Irene

(Labonte) Oleson of Berlin; a brother, Frank A. Oleson of Berlin; a sister, Patricia Holden of Hooksett; special family members, Paul Labonte of Bedford, and Debra Laflamme of Laconia; along with nieces, nephews and cousins.

Interment will be in the St. Kieran Cemetery.

LATIN from page 4

away from a store that is the very essence of Swissness, whatever you need, they’ll have it. These stores are called either Jelmoli or Gran Passage, which seems to depend on whether you’re closer to Germany or France. Not only that, but the signs inside the store are in German or French, depending on which side of the store you came in on. As I’ve already warned my readers, the Swiss are so sensible, they’re so good at things, that it can make a normal person dizzy. At any rate, I had no doubt that somewhere in this store there would be a way to get into your car when you’ve locked yourself out of it. In this case, the car was my ski team Subaru, and they were not quite like the Subarus of today. For one thing, they always seemed insubstantial, one corollary of which was their tendency to break important parts. That year it was constant-velocity joints in the drive train, which are absolutely essential to driving a car unless you’re on an infinitely long straight road. Anything less that that and you’ll go off the road. Or, in the worst-case scenario, off the edge of the world. So there I was in Switzerland with a Jelmoli/ Gran Passage store sure to be close at hand. It was and I went there and it was huge, as they must necessarily be. After all, they have to be able to solve any problem imaginable. I needed something thin but rigid and about six feet long. I wandered around for a while waiting for The Big Idea to strike, and then it did. Needless to say, it was in the gardening department, which is where must-find items for car emergencies are sure to be found. It was a greenish dried-out twig about six feet

long that was thicker than a soda straw but thinner than a yellow pencil, which is used for making trellises for climbing plants and it was rigid. And, this being Jelmoli, the rest of the solution was sure to be nearby, and it was. It was a screw driver. The reader will surely know what happened next. I slid the screw driver up under the rubber gasket at the top of a front window until I felt the top of the glass. Then I worked the tip of the screw driver over the top of the glass and pried down on it until I’d made a space just big enough for the green gardener’s twig. Subarus of that era didn’t have the kind of door locks we’re used to, they had a plastic rocker switch just under the glass on each front door — rock one way to lock, rock the other way to unlock. So I slid the thin green gardener’s trellis twig in over the top of the glass and reached it across the car and pushed on the rocking door lock switch and I was in. Needless to say, just such an emergency will almost certainly strike my car before very long. It’s not a 1980s Subaru, it’s a 1990s Audi, but never mind, because I did have an emergency just a few days ago. The starter motor gave up the ghost, which meant that I’d have to leave the car running for as long as I had it. Either that, or get it down to Importech. They’re sure to know what to do, and if they don’t, I’ll be sure to bring along one or two gardener’s green trellis makers, which have already proved their value in difficult situations.

Better Choices, Better Health” workshops now available LITTLETON-- The North Country Health Consortium welcomes thirteen new leaders for the renowned Stanford University Chronic Disease SelfManagement Program named “Better Choices, Better Health”. The intensive training was taught by Master Trainers Sue Chenoweth and Joan Lanoie of Memorial Hospital. The graduates are Jennifer Simon, Wendy Colby, Terry Couture, Vivian L’Heureux, Alice Gagnon, Francine Morgan, Sally Ash, Kathie Early, Kate Vaughn, Kate Keating, Peggy Rosen, Kathie Stringham, and Diane Poh. Originally developed by Stanford University, this statewide initiative is a partnership with Southern NH AHEC with funding provided by the NH Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health Services, and the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services. “We are pleased to offer a program that is an opportunity for collaboration and will not conflict with existing programs or treatment. It is designed to enhance regular treatment and disease-specific education such as Better Breathers, cardiac rehabilitation, or diabetes instruction,” said North Country Health Consortium Executive Director Martha McLeod. “In addition, many people have more than one chronic condition. The program is especially helpful for these people, as it gives them the skills to coordinate all the things needed to manage their health, as well as to help them keep active in their lives.” Leaders will work in pairs to facilitate the workshops for those age 60 and over in Littleton, Berlin, Whitefield, Laconia, Plymouth, and Mascoma, just to name a few. Workshops are designed to give people with chronic conditions (such as, but not limited to, arthritis, heart disease, emphysema, asthma, bronchitis, osteoporosis) and/or their caregivers the knowledge and skills needed to take a more active role in managing their health. Participants learn healthier ways to live, gain confidence and motivation to make healthy choices, and feel more positive about life. The six-week workshop meets once a week for two-and-ahalf hours. For more information about the “Better Choices, Better Health” Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, including how to register for a workshop or hosting a workshop, please contact Francine Morgan, AHEC program coordinator at (603) 259-

The North Country Health Consortium (NCHC) is a mature, rural health network which has been dedicated to improving access to health care to residents of Northern New Hampshire since 1999. NCHC develops initiatives that focus on the creation and sustainability of a cohesive regional health care delivery system. This regional network serves as a vehicle for collaboration; plans, implements and evaluates community-based health activities; improves access, referral and coordination of patient care; provides tools for coordinated, community health status assessment; and offers training and development in order to attract and retain qualified health professionals. Northern NH AHEC, a program of the consortium, is affiliated with Dartmouth Medical School and The Dartmouth Institute.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis are curious about what is going on in the lives of others, but you are not nosy. You respect the boundaries of privacy. As you show interest in others without the crossing the line, you’ll teach through your example. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You realize that there is no way to accomplish the day’s work without a fair dose of teamwork. That’s why you will downplay the “I” and give your emphasis to the “we.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will put yourself in the other person’s shoes. It’s not hard to do this, but it takes a special person to make the effort -- a person who is willing to let go of his or her own egoistic needs. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s something you are trying to do despite the fact that, given your current situation, it seems highly improbable that you will succeed at the task. Give everything you have, and you will turn the odds in your favor. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may feel like you are being picked on. Just keep in mind that sometimes the very thing you think of as rejection or bad luck is actually the luckiest thing that could happen to you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 29). Family celebrates you. New friends enter your world over the next 10 weeks and will continue to be a source of variety and spice. Thrilling challenges arise in May. You will study a new culture or profession in April. June brings your favorite kind of distraction. Invest in July for a return that will come in three years. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 20, 4, 31 and 18.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your leisure moments will be magical. You will get swept up into a brilliant piece of entertainment. The pettiness and worries of daily life will disappear as you thoroughly enjoy yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is nothing wrong with keeping score. If you didn’t, there would be no game. However, you realize that there are times (like today) when it is better to throw out the scorecard and start fresh. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like the god your guiding planet Mercury was named for, you will make your next moves with speedy assurance, defying laws of gravity as though there were wings on your shoes. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a competition on the horizon. You will give your best and most focused attention to preparing for this event. As you apply all you know, you will be a magnet for the new information you need to succeed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You set the kind of goals that will challenge you but won’t be so difficult that you are likely to be overwhelmed by the enormity and seeming impossibility of the task. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You put people first and consider the feelings of others at every turn. When it’s your turn to get in the game, though, you play to win.

by Abigail Van Buren

OLDER WORKER’S ILL BEHAVIOR COULD HAVE MULTIPLE CAUSES

DEAR ABBY: My heart ached after reading the letter from “Stumped in California” (Feb. 4), who wondered what could be done about an older co-worker, “Anita,” who she said was showing “signs of dementia.” I would caution her about making judgments based on stereotypes of older workers and their health problems. Like Anita, I am in my late 60s. I am also underwater in my mortgage, which means I have no nest egg. Because my husband is unemployed, my savings have been depleted. My short-term memory is poor, and the meds I am on to help me function do not improve my memory. Anita may not have dementia. She may be suffering from unbearable worry and stress. I suggest putting out a hand in friendship to Anita instead of trying to diagnose her. -- FEELING IT TOO IN RICHMOND, VA. DEAR FEELING IT: Many of my readers felt this one, and wrote to offer compassion to Anita as well as possible explanations for her slip in job performance. Read on: DEAR ABBY: Anyone experiencing marked and/or prolonged changes in mood, function and behavior should undergo thorough medical and/or psychological/psychiatric evaluation. Many treatable conditions can affect memory and concentration. The constant tearfulness observed by “Stumped” is a common symptom of depression. If Anita’s office has an Employee Assistance Plan, a supervisor or HR will know the procedure for referring her to an EAP clinician who can evaluate her and make recommendations for treatment, work-related considerations and followup. -- LICENSED CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST, UPSTATE NEW YORK DEAR ABBY: I am a state-licensed hearing instrument specialist. The commonalities between the symptoms of hearing loss and dementia are many. A person with hearing loss has a tendency to withdraw -- she’s more APART FROM than a PART OF. Also, if she’s having trouble remembering things

she’s done before, she may not have heard the request. (How can you remember something if you have never heard it?) I encourage “Stumped” to talk to Anita about having her hearing tested. A hearing aid may be what she needs to help her perform better on the job. -- KNOWS FROM EXPERIENCE DEAR ABBY: As a manager in the federal government, I had an employee who worked hard the majority of her life and did a great job. Suddenly, her performance began suffering. It didn’t make sense to me how she could be so valuable at one point in her career, and then couldn’t do the simplest task without goofing it up. I sent her to a doctor for an examination, and we discovered that this “older woman” was having mini-strokes all day long! I was relieved to be able to retire her on disability, rather than destroying her life’s hard work by firing her. And she was able to get help for a medical condition she wasn’t aware of. -- RUTH IN FREDERICK, MD. DEAR ABBY: Anita may have a thyroid problem. I had similar symptoms in my 40s, and it took two years for the right diagnosis. A blood test is all she would need to find out. -- HELPING HAND IN ORLAND HILLS, ILL. DEAR ABBY: I am 67 and work because I can’t live on Social Security. Perhaps Anita is facing the same problem and must work. My co-workers are supportive, and we have access to a wellness program to help us. She should check with Human Resources. Anita needs support, not criticism. Do not assume all seniors suffer from dementia. -- SEASONED WORKER IN TUCSON DEAR ABBY: Technology is moving so quickly that people of all ages need to update their skill level constantly. The economy is hitting our seniors hard. Anita may be working to pay for medications. To “Stumped” I say: Get off your high horse and stop watching Anita “deteriorate.” Help her! It might be you someday. -- P.J. IN MIAMISBURG, OHIO

Ex-trooper offered plea deal in DMV case BY JAMES A. KIMBLE THE UNION LEADER

BRENTWOOD – State prosecutors have offered a plea deal to an ex-state trooper charged with taking bribes and offering inspection stickers to a Manchester man. But so far, it appears Fred Stamatatos, 40, of Pelham, is going to fight the charges at trial in Rockingham County Superior Court. Prosecutors recently offered Stamatatos either a six-month county jail sentence or a scenario in which they could argue for up to 12 months in jail before a judge in exchange for his guilty plea, according to court records. Stamatatos was indicted on a felony bribery charge and nine misdemeanors for allegedly providing inspection stickers for salvaged vehicles to Aldaberto Medina, 39, of Manchester without performing state-mandated inspections. An Aug. 1 trial date has been set for Stamatatos, and the defense may argue for some evidence to be thrown out of court before the case heads to trial, court papers say. The felony

the sun set, when winds were between 70 and 90 mph and visibility was near zero. Temperatures were in the single digits. The searchers were unable to find her. The next morning Mountain Rescue Service, which specializes in searches in winter alpine environments, responded, as did the New Hampshire National Guard, the Appalachian Mountain Club and Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue. The National Guard sent a Blackhawk helicopter, which spotted Horgan near treeline to the south of the summit just before 10 a.m. They directed rescuers on the ground to her location. When they first walked up, Comeau said, “she had a big smile on her face, happy to see us.” “We all expected a much worse scenario than what we found,” Larson said. Comeau, Larson and a third rescuer, Jim Surette, gave her food and hot water, and she was able to hike down on her own. She got back to Route 302 around 12:30 p.m. But the state is still considering whether she will have to pay for the rescue, which cost thousands of dollars. “Ultimately it’s the attorney gener-

bribery charge is punishable by up to 3 1/2 to 7 years in state prison if a jury convicts Stamatatos at trial. Stamatatos was arrested last May as part of a widespread bribery investigation that focused on a Department of Motor Vehicles clerk in Salem who issued fraudulent driver’s licenses in exchange for cash payoffs. The ex-clerk, Donna Rockholt, of Manchester, pleaded guilty on Feb. 4 to bribery, theft and drug charges and agreed to become a state witness. She is expected to serve at least 12 years in prison for taking bribes since May 2005. The licenses were used to give illegal immigrants and criminals from Massachusetts new identities, according to prosecutors. More than a dozen people were arrested as part of the scheme. Stamatatos had no role in the license fraud operation, according to prosecutors. State police were monitoring phone calls made by Medina when they allegedly picked up on a conversation he had with Stamatatos, leading to his arrest, according to court records and prosecutors.

al’s office that decides,” said Lt. Doug Gralenski, of New Hampshire Fish and Game. Fish and Game fills out a report and makes a recommendation, he said, but it comes down to whether she was negligent or not. “That’s being investigated as we speak,” he said. The answer hinges on two things, Gralenski said: her equipment choices, and her decision-making and judgement. She was well equipped, but she went up high during harsh weather. “Was that a prudent decision?” he said. “That would be the area we’d be looking at.” Fish and Game will make a report about the incident and submit it to the attorney general’s office to make the decision. The rescuers, however, called Horgan a success story. “Experienced, knowledgeable, fit prepared,” Larson said. “She had it all.” Horgan told Larson she’d been hiking for 14 years. “Everybody is guilty of getting lost,” Larson said. “All three of the people who found her had been lost in that exact same spot.” “I don’t think it’s at all a fine-able incident,” Wilcox said. has dealt with lots of similar incidents that usually end far worse. “This woman was at least equipped.”

UNH’s Thompson signs with NHL’s Penguins BY ALLEN LESSELS THE UNION LEADER

University of New Hampshire senior forward Paul Thompson of Derry signed a professional hockey contract today to play in the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. He has been assigned to Pittsburgh’s American Hockey League affiliate, the WilkesBarre/Scranton Penguins, plans to join the team this week and

hopes to play in his first AHL game this weekend. Thompson, who played his high school hockey for Pinkerton Academy of Derry and skated at the junior level for the Hooksettbased New Hampshire Junior Monarchs, closed out his collegiate career Sunday night in UNH’s 2-1 loss to Notre Dame in the Northeast Regional finals of the NCAA tournament at Verizon Wireless Arena.

Notre Dame advanced to the Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minn., on April 7. UNH finished its season with a 22-11-6 record. Thompson scored 28 goals and had 24 assists for 52 points as a senior, and was named Player of the Year in Hockey East. He is one of 10 finalists for the Hobey Baker Award, which goes to the best player in Division I. Thompson had 57 goals and 55 assists in 140 career games at UNH.

Residents grill Guinta about Libyan air strikes, gas prices BY JASON SCHREIBER THE UNION LEADER

PLAISTOW — U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta got an earful last week when nearly 150 people packed a town hall meeting to grill him about everything from unemployment and skyrocketing gas prices to the nation’s new military role in Libya’s civil unrest. At his second town hall meeting since taking office in January, the former Manchester mayor was peppered with questions from the standing-room only crowd inside Plaistow Town Hall on Thursday. Derry resident Michael Layon’s criticism of President Obama’s handling of the U.S. involvement in Libya drew the loudest applause. Layon expressed frustration over Obama’s decision to take orders from the United Nations without consulting with Congress before the U.S. launched air strikes against Libyan ground

forces in a coalition effort to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya. “I have a great concern and a problem with the fact that he went to the U.N. and not to your representatives,” Guinta told the crowd, saying the country’s sudden military involvement in Libya will lead to some “constitutional dialogue” in Congress in the coming weeks. Guinta, a Republican, said the U.S. spent $100 million on the first day of air strikes, and “we don’t have a clear mission, and we don’t have a clear end-game.” With U.S. forces still in Afghanistan and Iraq, Guinta said adding a “third front without the express consent of Congress was wrong.” Other constituents told Guinta that Congress should take steps to cut foreign aid and keep more of the money at home. Wallace Rose of Kingston had a suggestion when it comes to troop deployment around the world. “I think it’s about time these

countries start paying for our troops,” he said, as a woman in crowd shouted “Protect Arizona.” Several people voiced concern about rising gas prices and the nation’s reliance on foreign oil, saying the government needs to start looking at natural resources closer to home to meet its needs. Warning the crowd to brace for gas prices of $4 a gallon within the next two to three months, Guinta agreed that the country needs to “tap into the oil that we know is onshore and offshore” and to take advantage of its own natural gas resources and other energy opportunities. With House Republicans eyeing $100 billion in federal budget cuts, Don Seely of Hampstead told Guinta that he’s worried about more workers facing layoffs, including teachers. “You’re starting off with cutting jobs of the people who can least afford it,” Seely said. “These are cuts that affect ordinary people with ordinary jobs.”
