Where are the pictures of Johanne’s jump? BY GAIL SCOTT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN—At the spectacular Olympic Trials held at Berlin’s brand new Nansen Ski Jump in March 1938, Norwegian guest star Johanne Kolstad of Dokka, Norway, soared a women’s world record of 228 feet. Thousands of people witnessed this awesome event. At least 5,000 cars were counted, parked in the parking lot and along Route 16, according to the Berlin Reporter of March 10, 1938, which also enthusiastically estimated the crowd at 25,000. Now a respected Norwegian documentary film company— Flimmer Film— is making a documentary about Kolstad’s life and especially of her feat here—a record that stood unchallenged until 1972. But where are the films and the photos of the event? So far, the researchers of Flimmer Film have not found any, although they have compiled other moving picture shots of Kolstad who was, at this time, a star at a number of ski jumping events in
the U.S. as well as elsewhere. Kolstad was 25. The Nansen Ski Jump, then hailed as “the largest ski jump in the eastern United States and foremost in the country”, gave her the opportunity to beat her own previous world record of 203 feet by 25 feet. It proved to be Kolstad’s finest jump. She never beat the distance, although she continued to ski in succeeding decades. She died in 1997. After her death, a book about early women ski jumpers was written by Karin Berg, director of the Oslo Ski Museum, who had access to Kolstad’s clippings, saved in “a little box”. There appear to have been newspaper clippings in the box, but …. where are the Berlin films. Even in the 1930s, motion pictures were being shot of sports and must have been taken of Kolstad’s appearance in Berlin—if nothing else because the event was the 1938 ski jumping Olympic Trials in the U.S. This sad state of the historical record has come to light because of Flimmer Film’s intent to document see PICTURES page 7
Walter Nadeau, of Berlin, Romeo Labonte, of Berlin, Leane Rexford, of Milan, and cameraman Torstein Nodland, of Flimmer Flims, share a laugh, occasioned, no doubt, by some remark Labonte has made about skiing in the old days and whether or not Johanne Kolstad’s world record jump of 228 feet from the Nansen Ski Jump in 1938 was anything to write home about. Labonte’s record on the same hill was 250 feet. Kolstad’s jump broke her own world record by 25 feet, was her career best, and stood as the world’s women’s ski jump record until 1972. It was made during the 1938 Olympic ski jumping trials in Berlin when the Nansen Ski Jump was brand new. Kolstad was a guest star. (GAIL SCOTT PHOTO)
Annual GRS Co-Op Shelburne to consider meeting tonight at GM/HS contracting for police services GORHAM—The Gorham Randolph Shelburne Cooperative School District will be holding its annual meeting tonight. The meeting is at 7 p.m. in the Gorham Middle High School gymnasium. At the meeting voters will be faced with deciding on a number of warrant articles including the proposed 2011- 2012 school budget and the proposed four-year teachers’ contract. The proposed 2011- 2012 school budget is $8,452,694. The Gorham Randolph Shelburne Cooperative School Board voted on a number of cuts in order to cover the increase in insurance costs, other benefits and an anticipated decrease in state aid. This year’s proposed operating budget of $8,491,772 is a $39,078 increase over last year’s budget. The administrators initially came in with a budget that showed a reduction, but the board voted last week to put a nursing position
back in. This caused the increase. A number of staff reductions are in the budgets, including eliminating a part time custodial position, eliminating a special education teacher, eliminating an English teacher, eliminating an business/ IT teacher, eliminating the industrial arts program, eliminating a part time special education administrative assistant and eliminating five para-professionals. The reduction of an English teacher would be prevented if voters pass the proposed teachers’ contract. Aside from personnel changes, the budget also cuts co-curricular stipends, department head stipends, the golf team and the crosscountry skiing team. The projected tax rate impact is a $2.24 increase for Gorham; a 65 cent increase for Randolph; and a 15 cent decrease for Shelburne. This would make the antici-

ately due to a small number of troopers on the road. “They were looking for a quicker response time for emergency calls for service,” said Cyr. The estimated price for a year of police services in Shelburne, said Cyr, is $12,000- $15,000. He added the estimated figure is based on the past three years worth of calls. Shelburne would pay the Gorham officers $39.31 per hour, which is the amount included in the union contract, and pay that same rate for any follow up investigation that an incident might require. In an incident where an emergency call comes in from Shelburne and there is only one Gorham officer on patrol, Cyr said an off-duty officer would be called in so someone would be on duty in town. He added Shelburne would then pay for the overtime for the officer that is called in, as well as regular rate for the emergency call response. For Gorham residents, Cyr said they

SHELBURNE— At Tuesday’s town meeting, Shelburne’s voters will decide whether to begin contracting with the Gorham Police Department for services. The proposed agreement would give Shelburne 24- hour police coverage from Gorham officers. The Gorham police would primarily handle emergency calls, while state police would continue fielding most of the general service calls. The town could also ask for specific dedicated patrols during certain hours, according to the terms of the agreement. The Shelburne Board of Selectmen initially asked if extending police services to the town was possible, said Gorham Chief PJ Cyr. He added Shelburne expressed interest in the idea since the town will no longer have an elected constable. Currently for police services, Cyr said Shelburne relies on the constable and the N.H. State Police. He added that the town was concerned because state police sometimes can’t responded to a call immedi-

Arkansas quake most powerful in 35 years (NY Times) — A 4.7-magnitude earthquake that researchers described as the largest in Arkansas in 35 years was recorded late Sunday night near Greenbrier. It was the latest in a swarm of quakes that has bedeviled the region since early last fall. There were no reports of major damage, though some residents spoke of dislodged screen doors and cracked ceilings. Damage or not, some said this was the longest and scariest quake yet. “It felt like a real loud thunder, but like 10 times worse than that,” said Kim Bannister, 34, who lives just outside Greenbrier. “I have felt some of them, but nothing like last night.” The swarm in central Arkansas has brought dozens of rumblings each week, many of them with magnitudes beyond 2.0. The situation has garnered national attention because of its possible connection to natural-gas drilling operations in the area. Researchers with the Arkansas Geological Survey have pointed out spatial and temporal relationships between the earthquakes and the use of injection wells, which are used to dispose of the wastewater left over from gas drilling. (Researchers see no such correlation between the quakes and the drilling itself, a process called hydraulic fracturing.)

1,491 U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan.
Libyan rebels are said to repulse government attack BREGA, Libya (NY Times) — In a ﬁ erce day-long battle, rebel forces in this strategic oil town repelled an attack on Wednesday by government loyalists backed by artillery and war planes, witnesses in the town said. At least six were conﬁrmed dead and 16 wounded in the ﬁghting, the witnesses said, and the death toll was expected to rise. The attack seemed to spearhead a broader effort by the government of Col. Muammar
el-Qaddaﬁ to reassert control over strategic oil assets in the eastern part of the country, which have been seized by rebel forces in recent weeks. The attack began at dawn, the witnesses said, as the government ﬁ ghters arrived in a convoy of more than 50 SUVs and quickly control of the airport and port facilities in this oil-exporting terminal on the Libyan coast around 500 miles east of Colonel Qaddaﬁ’s strong-
hold in the capital, Tripoli. News of the attack galvanized rebel ﬁghters in the nearby cities of Ajdabiya and Benghazi, who raced to the front lines armed with AK-47s, rocket-propelled grenades and aging anti-tank weapons. By midafternoon, the opposition forces had turned the tide, driving the Qaddaﬁ loyalists out of the port and adjoining oil facilities and back into a university on the shores of the Mediterranean.
Gunmen kill Pakistani cabinet minister LAHORE, Pakistan (NY Times) — The only Christian minister in the Pakistan government was shot dead Wednesday two months after the assassination of another liberal politician, raising questions about how ﬁ rmly Pakistan’s government is tackling Islamic extremism. Shahbaz Bhatti, 41, the minister of minorities, had made a life work of campaigning for tolerance in Muslim majority Pakistan, and most recently became a lonely voice, with a handful of others, in a campaign to reform the harsh blasphemy law.
After the assassination in January of the governor of Punjab, Salman Taseer, who had also publicly called for changes to the blasphemy law, Mr. Bhatti feared for his life but continued, though more quietly, to work toward his dream of ultimately repealing the law, associates said. The law, introduced in the 1970s, was amended in 1986 under Gen. Mohammad Zia ul-Haq, the American-backed military leader, to include the death penalty for those accused of speaking against the Prophet Muhammed.

COLUMBUS (NY Times) — Ohio took its ﬁrst step Wednesday toward passing sweeping legislation that would curtail collective bargaining rights for public sector workers, banning strikes and putting the power of breaking labor impasses into the hands of town councils. Amid boos and shouts of “shame on you,” Ohio’s Senate voted 17 to 16 in favor of the bill, which has sparked heated debate over the rights of public employees in Ohio. Unions called it the biggest blow to public sector workers since the legal framework was put in place to protect them in 1983. Republican lawmakers argued that it was required in order to keep local governments solvent. The battle in Ohio has unfolded over the past month, along with others in Wisconsin and Indiana. But unlike those states, where Democrats are needed for a quorum, Ohio Republicans make a quorum on their own, and Wednesday’s passage was expected to be repeated in the House, also controlled by Republicans, next week.

Three jurors seated at 20-car crash closes I-93 Gribble insanity trial South In Canterbury BY KATHRYN MARCHOCKI THE UNION LEADER
NASHUA – Six jurors were seated Wednesday in the insanity trial of admitted Mont Vernon killer Christopher A. Gribble. The ﬁ ve women and one man were picked out of a total 25 people interviewed during the ﬁrst day of individual questioning. Hillsborough County Superior Court Judge Gillian L. Abramson allowed questioning to continue more than 90 minutes after court closed to press towards seating a jury of 16. Attorneys probed prospective jurors on whether they or someone they knew suffered from mental illness, their beliefs on an insanity defense and their exposure to media coverage of the Oct. 4, 2009 home invasion. Gribble, 21, of Brookline admitted he helped murder Kimberly L. Cates, 42, and maimed her daughter, Jaimie, then 11, and participated in the kill and rob scheme, but claims he was legally insane at the time. The male juror in his 20s or 30s said he was “a little bit shocked” when the Oct. 4, 2009 home invasion ﬁ rst happened.
But he said he believed he could remain fair and impartial. “I always try to put myself in somebody else’s shoes and give them time to prove themselves to me,” the juror said. The second juror seated is a middle-aged mother who said she was “unnerved” when she ﬁ rst learned of the crime. “How could you not hear about that and not say, ‘Oh, my God?,’” she asked. She described herself as a busy working mother who hasn’t had the time to closely follow the case. The third juror is a single mother who described herself as someone who could be fair and make up their own mind. Two other jurors said they heard friends and acquaintances say the men charged in the home invasion should be “lynched” or “deserved to be hanged” shortly after the crime. The defense used a peremptory strike on the ﬁ rst and the judge dismissed the second for cause.The defense so far exercised two peremptory challenges and the judge dismissed two jurors for cause. Jury selection is expected to continue in to next week.
N.H. health report: Obesity is state’s biggest problem BY DENIS PAISTE THE UNION LEADER
CONCORD — New Hampshire has much to be proud of in ranking ﬁ rst nationally for the lowest percentage of child poverty and lowest teen birth rate, but an increase in obesity rates among children and adults shows room for improvement, according to a state Health Proﬁle released Tuesday. “We have been ranked as one of the best states in immunizations,” Dr. Jose Montero, director of public health at the Department of Health and Human Services, said. Among the state’s children, 97 percent are vaccinated against chickenpox. For the ﬂu, 72 percent of people over 65 are vaccinated. “We want to do that to continue protecting them, to allow them to have a better future and a healthier future,” he said. “We are really proud of all of these achievements,” Montero said. “This report is not to brag about those things, but is to highlight the fact that we have been doing a lot of work that we need to continue doing.” Among areas of concern the report cited: • Obesity has increased among high school students from 9.9 percent in 2003 to 12.4 percent in 2009.
• A total of 21 percent, or 15,000, high school students smoke. • Less than 12 percent of teens wear a seatbelt when driving with other teens. Addressing the obesity issue, John Kenyon, a food service manager for Cafe Services, described how the Mascoma School District revamped its school lunch menus to include healthier offerings. In particular, a la carte selections were changed to meet guidelines of no more than 180 calories, with no trans fats, no more than 30 percent calories from fat and no more than 35 percent from sugar. While sales of those snacks and side dishes initially went down, over time students bought more healthful items and bought more school lunches. “We still have about a $30 to $35 a day drop in revenues associated with a la carte sales, but what we did ﬁ nd was our meals that we sold at lunch actually increased and also our reimbursements from the government actually increased,” Kenyon said. “I see that as a huge success story.” Teresa Alexander, a former smoker who participated in the Quit Works program, said she started in May 2010 and succeeded after six weeks. She said she tells relatives and friends, “If I can do it, anybody can do it.”
CANTERBURY — Interstate 93 south in Canterbury was shut down Wednesday because of a crash involving as many as 20 cars. Transportation ofﬁ cials said the highway was shut down at exit 18. Bill Boynton of the Department of Transportation said a snow squall moved
through the area, limiting visibility. “It looks like another whiteout situation,” he said. There was no immediate word of injuries and no indication how long the interstate would remain closed. —Courtesy of WMUR
N.H. misses state revenue projection once again, this time by 17.5 percent BY GARRY RAYNO THE UNION LEADER
CONCORD — February revenues clouded the state budget picture for this ﬁ scal year, producing 17.5 percent less than budget estimates. Budget writers projected February would produce $93.4 million in revenue, but only $77.1 million came into the state’s coffers. Department of Administrative Services Commissioner Linda Hodgdon, said “This is concerning because we were doing so well. We really need March and April.” House Speaker William O’Brien called on Gov. John Lynch to use an executive order to reduce spending. “We simply must start taking steps now to ensure that the budget problems we inherited don’t become an even greater issue for our next budget. While there is little that the legislature can do this far into the budget to solve this shortfall, I will be bringing together the House members of the Fiscal Committee to review steps we can take immediately to stop the bleeding,” said O’Brien.
Traditionally, February revenues are small compared to other months, while March and April revenues are much higher due to business tax quarterly ﬁlings. Until this month, revenues had been about $6 million below estimates for the 2012 ﬁ scal year. With February, revenues are now $23 million below estimates. In February, business taxes are almost 50 percent below estimates producing $7.2 million, or $6.7 million below estimates. The businesses ﬁ ling returns are down slightly from a year ago, according to budget ofﬁcials, but the average amount of the ﬁ ling is down 20 percent. Other major taxes below estimates include rooms and meals, tobacco, communications, lottery transfers and “other,” a collection of small taxes and fees. The only signiﬁcant revenue sources at or above estimates for February are liquor sales and the insurance tax. To date, state revenues have produced $1.051 billion, while budget writers predicted $1.074 billion.

Do you really think you're worth $52 an hour? To the editor: Everyone is crying about budget cuts. It is pretty simple, stop the crazy salaries. Do you really think that Corinne Cascadden is worth is $101,300 and Beverly Dupont $100,909 per year? I don’t and I know that I am not the only one who feels this way. Let’s take a realistic look: $100,909 per year breaks down to $8,409.08 per month, which is $1940.55 per week, which is approximately $52.00 an hour plus full time benefits, including health insurance, 401K, etc. That is absurdly ridiculous! No one in the school district is worth $52 an hour! Minimum wage is only $7.25 in New Hampshire. Think about how many families are only getting minimum wage and trying to support their families. I think any school official getting $52 an hour is a slap in our faces, especially as Berlin residents paying property taxes. As tax payers, we should have a say in school officials’ wages and I say that they be reduced! I don’t think that the teachers’ wages should be reduced, just the department heads and administrative workers. Face it, the average citizen in Berlin is struggling to make ends meet and some department heads are whining that they are not getting paid enough and they want more. Stop paying crazy salaries and there won’t be a budget issue. Better yet, they
should pay it forward; any school official earning more than $30 an hour should donate any amount above that back to the school. Or maybe reduce administrative and department head salaries and either save the difference in the budget or hire another teacher, which is a great idea because SAU3 is a school in need of improvement for four plus years. One would think that the Department of Education would penalize SAU3 for being a school in need of improvement and reduce your salaries, if that happened I bet the school would no longer be a school in need of improvement. You are setting a terrible example for Berlin students and should be ashamed of yourselves. You want them to grow up to be productive citizens and stay in Berlin; well you are definitely not setting a good example yourselves. It seems to me that the department heads are basically way over paid office workers, sitting behind a desk, figuring out ways to put more money in their pockets. The students, the parents, and the taxpayers would all have a lot more respect for the school system if school officials would step up to the plate and take care of issues instead of whining. Think about it, reduced salaries could be a win-win solution for the school budget, taxpayers, parents, and students. Michael Bisson Berlin

Once upon a Berlin Time
Odds And Ends Hello fellow Berlinites. As I browse through the old papers and Brown Bulletins, I always try to earmark things that I think would be interesting to my readers. While I was in the paper of 1919, I came across one story and while I was searching the Brown Bulletins of 1921, I found another. For friend Ben Murphy and all the other Gorham citizens, here is a story about which that you may have never known.On Monday, April 28, 1919, the town of Gorham marked the fortieth anniversary of the most disastrous fire that they have ever had, even to this date (2011). It was still remembered by the senior residents of this town back then, because it almost wiped out the whole business portion of this village on Exchange, Park and railroad Streets. The fire took place on April 28, 1879. This great conflagration started around noon in a small building on Exchange Street and spread to a building owned by Mr. J. W. Greenlaw. Then, the wind became involved and took the flames to the Post Office, the “Mountaineer” Office (Gorham’s old newspaper) and a law office. Each dwelling became prey to the flames until they were completely destroyed. On the end of Park Street, next to the railroad station, were two large barns, known as the Glen House Stables. These stables were filled with hay and the jumping flames from Park Street, soon got to them.After consuming a portion of Exchange Street and Park Street, the fire started down Railroad Street, burning the Brewer Block, which was used for a hall, a barber shop and had several rents. It then continued down and consumed a huge block owned by Warren Noyes. Now, the Grand trunk Railroad property was in its path and it burned some of this property, before the freight building was saved by a great effort of the beleaguered firefighters.The railroad sheds that were filled with almost 300,000 tons of coal were next in line and started to burn, but the timely arrival of the Falmouth engine of Portland saved all but 300 tons. In a little over three hours, 106 people were left homeless and only two buildings were left standing near the corner of Park and Main Streets. Several times, the great machine shops on Railroad Street were in danger of falling victim to the flames, but were saved. The estimated loss back then was $62,865.00 and it was said that the people who witnessed this great catastrophe could never forget how helpless and hopeless it looked as the flames spread from home to home and building to
building. The only means of fighting a fire back then was a small hand tub, along with a hook and ladder. When the danger became so great that it seemed all shops would be destroyed, a dispatch calling for help was sent to Portland and Joseph Chandler, a well known engineer, was sent back with a special.He was given a clear track and made the time from Portland to Gorham with two stops, in one hour and fifty six minutes; the distance being ninety two miles. Now, even though the people had already lost their houses, they still had their occupations as long as the railroad shops stood. So, as the approaching Portland train blew its whistle and help arrived, the people cheered.A Berlin woman, Mrs. Neals, who lived in Gorham at the time and whose house was the last to be burned, had been assured by the firefighters that she was safe, so she sat calmly rocking her child. All of a sudden, the firemen burst into the house and told her that she had to evacuate immediately. This great fire seems to have been lost in the history books, as it was so long ago. For the citizens of Gorham, it is a reminder of what took place in this busy railroad town back then. I do not believe that there was any loss of life. The next part of this story has to do with a musical organization started under the leadership of A. N. Perkins. It was called the Cascade Mill Mandolin Club and had fourteen members at its peak. This orchestra handled a good grade of standard compositions, as well as popular music of the day. It was run as a pastime for its members. Although I don’t have names to put with the pictures, maybe someone can help. Here are the men who were part of this musical assemblage in the picture: Joseph Basil was a painter and entered the employ of the Brown Company in March of 1912. One must remember that the Brown Company was called the Berlin Mills Company until 1917, when it changed its name because of the war against Germany. Basil was a guitarist and a soloist of no small repute. He also played the mandolin and was a baritone player, having played with the Berlin Brass Band and the Burgess Band. Mr. Basil also played baritone in one of the regimental bands during World War I. Mr. Pisani entered the employ of the Brown Company in April of 1913. He played the see ODDS page 5

mandolin, guitar and clarinet. He also served in one of the Army bands as a clarinetist. His specialty was painting, having done interior decorating on ceilings of churches and public buildings. Another member of this group and I am sorry that I do not have first names, was Mr. Perkins. This musician was a yard foreman by trade and entered the employ of Berlin’s great paper company in May of 1904. He worked at the Riverside for nine years, before being transferred to Cascade.He was the director of this club and played the mandolin, banjo and guitar. This man was also active in band work, having been associated with Oleson’s City Band and the Berlin Brass Band. Mr. Williams was a back tender on the number 4 paper machine and became an employee of the Brown Company in September of 1905. He played the mandolin, violin and French horn. He was also interested in band work for several years, before joining this club. A man by the name of Wilkinson entered the Brown Company as a paper maker and worked his way up to third hand, before going into the office. He then went over to Riverside as a spare timekeeper and then the engineering department as a draftsman. Next, he was offered a position as the superintendent of the mechanical arts department at Berlin High School and worked there for two years. Then, he accepted a job with the U.S. Government, traveling around appraising factory buildings. Mr. Wilkinson worked in Boston and was the only member of this club
that was away from Berlin. This man played all of the fretted instruments and also taught and directed other clubs. Mr. Catello entered the employ of the Berlin paper mill in March of 1912. This musician played the mandolin, horn and drums and had always been interested in band work. Mr. Aloti was a wood handler, joining the Brown Company ranks in March of 1912. He was considered an artist on the mandolin and during World War I, attained the rank of sergeant with one of the Army bands. Last, but not least, the eighth member that goes along with this picture was a man named Mr. Webb. He was a size maker, joining the Brown Company in August of 1917. He played the mandolin, banjo and violin being very active in band work. As my readers can see, many of the men that worked in the mills of Berlin were very talented in one way or another. For these men just mentioned, it was their musical ability. Wouldn’t you just like to go over to the St. Kieran’s Community Center for the Arts and listen to the Cascade Mill Mandolin Club put on one of their performances? I would venture to bet that Executive Director Joan Chamberlain would love to have had them. They must have been awesome. As mentioned, I am sorry that I could not put names to each person in the picture; maybe some out there has this photo with the names in place. Questions or comments email poof@ ne.rr.com. Also, join the more than 900 fans of “Once upon a Berlin Time” on Facebook and guess the mystery picture of the week.

Kolstad as one of Norway’s unsung heroes for Norway’s national television, the NRK, according to Flimmer Film researcher Havard Parr. The series focusses on a diverse group, including an archaeologist, a photographer, a woman pilot, and Knute Rockne, a Norwegian who coached Notre Dame to innumerable championships and was the inventor of “the backfield shift,” according to Flimmer Film director of photography on this project, cameraman Torstein Nodland, a 2000 graduate of the Norwegian National film school. Kolstad is particularly notable as a woman who succeeded despite the general opposition in the even-now male dominated sport. In Flimmer Film’s research of the Kolstad story, they contacted Leane Rexford, who is president of the Nansen Ski Club. Rexford, in turn, went to the Berlin/Coos County Historical Society, where Walter Nadeau put together everything he could find about Kolstad in the Moffett House storehouse of Berlin history, but he turned up no reference to films. Last weekend Nodland visited the Moffett House with Rexford, who had also arranged for him to interview Berlin ski jumper Romeo LaBonte. LaBonte remembers the jump, having done his own share of soaring from the 171.5-foot tower with its 225-foot vertical drop and descent angle of approximately 37.5 degrees. LaBonte remembers not being particularly impressed with Kolstad, perhaps reflecting the attitude from an era in which women were not considered worthy sports competitors. “She didn’t go far,” said LaBonte who said his best jump from the hill was 250 feet.
“It surprised me a little,” he said of Kolstad’s jump. “I liked this hill,” he added. “It had good air pressure. Here it was steady all the time. It was good.” One of the reasons that Kolstad was touring the U.S. is that women were not allowed to jump from Norway’s ultimate, the royal ski jumping hill in Holmenkollen. Even today, women’s ski jumping is not allowed in the Olympics, but with women’s ski jumping becoming ever more celebrated in world championships, advocates hope it will be an Olympic sport in 2014. In any case, when Nodland arrived at the Moffett House Saturday, he toured the museum with Nadeau and Don and Odette Leclerc, and interviewed LaBonte and Nadeau while reviewing Kolstad references in local Berlin newspapers and those stored in Nodland’s computer. Later, with Rexford, Nodland went to the ruin of the Nansen Ski Jump, where he took images of what remains of the once famous structure and took his turn, sledding down the now-overgrown slope. In Nodland’s opinion, the jump looks very steep, “steeper than they use today,” he said, “although Holmenkollen is also steep.” He wondered why ski jumping appeared to have fallen out of favor in the Berlin area. Nadeau pointed out that with the improvements in equipment, skiers had just outgrown the Nansen jump. “We would have had to make major adjustments so the competitors would not out-jump the slope,” he said. “The last year it was used was in 1985. In the 25 years since, it has fallen into disrepair. The steel structure is ok, but all the wood has rotted away and trees have grown up on the slope.”

Nadeau added that there have been moves to find funding to repair the jump and make a state park there, but, he imiplied, so far, no luck. “It is an historic landmark,” he told Norland. “It’s a sad thing to look at the jump and think about the great athletes from all over the world who jumped there, to see an historic structure like that rot away,” he said. LaBonte also regrets what has happened to the jump. MEETING from page one

Edward Fenn Elementary students correspond with soldiers GORHAM – In careful print, across wide-ruled paper the letter reads, “Dear Army Soldier, Hi my name is Devan. What do you do in the winter? Where are you when you go home? Please write back. Devan”. This is just one of the many letters sent to professionals all over the country by the students of Miss Nicole McAllister’s first grade class. The first grade students of the Edward Fenn Elementary School recently read a book about various professions. Students were involved in a very enthusiastic discussion about the jobs they would like to have when they grow up and decided to write letters to the professional of their choice, asking questions about the work they do. Each of these young students thought long and hard about whom they would like to write to---all were hoping for a quick response---and, that is exactly what they got. Letters have been arriving in the mail almost daily. Not only have students
received quick responses to their letters, they have had visits with some choice professionals as well! Devan received a surprise visit from SSG Matthew Hawkins, the Recruiting and Retention NCO of the New Hampshire Army National Guard post in Berlin just prior to the school’s February vacation. The class was also invited to visit with Keith Parent; the principal of the Gorham Middle/High School after aren’t received his letter from first grade student, Andrew Dale. In his response to Andrew, Parent stated, “I have never received a letter from a first grader who wants to be a principal before…it would be my pleasure to show you my office and the rest of the school…I think you should become a school Principal someday…work hard in school, do all your work the best you can and listen to your parents and teachers”. Students have truly enjoyed the letters and visits they have

received in response to their inquiries. In addition to the letters from Principal Keith Parent and SSG Matthew Hawkins, letters from doctors, artists, dairy farmers, and the New York Giants are all on
display in McAllister’s classroom. After reading each letter it is perfectly clear that these professionals also enjoyed the letters and attention provided to them by this small group of very young students.

By Holiday Mathis bliss. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When was the last time you made a decision based purely on your own needs and preferences? You’re overdue for making a seemingly selﬁ sh choice, and you’re not the only one who will beneﬁ t from this. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Not all of your friends are a good inﬂ uence on you all of the time. Be aware of the subtle persuasions of others. Try to keep company strictly with those who make you feel good about yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). The dating world is an extremely complicated place. But you will be guided by natural instincts that make it easier to navigate, whether for yourself or for your loved ones. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be at your best in casual situations. Avoid formality wherever possible. And if you must take part in a formal arrangement, learn the rules ﬁrst and apply them well. PISCES (Feb. 19 -March 20). Choose carefully who you want to get to know, because this choice will send you on a journey. You’ll make eye contact, and suddenly the ball is rolling. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 3). When it comes to your love life, your judgment will be consistently stellar. You’ll make choices that bring you closer to the ones you want to be near. You’ll participate in an exciting challenge in the next six weeks. There’s a move or renovation in June. Family additions come in August. You have a special connection with Aquarius and Gemini people. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 44, 10 and 15.
HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes fantastic gifts are not wrapped in a pretty package with a bow on top. Accept goodness in whatever package it comes, and be careful not to put too may conditions on your requests of others. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Be compassionate, especially toward yourself. You are probably feeling uncharacteristically fragile. You tell others to take it easy on themselves, and now you need to do the same. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Use all of your senses to tune into your boss, clients and customers. You’ll make an important discovery, and you could ﬁnd a very proﬁ table application for what you learn. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll receive praise, which is sometimes challenging for someone as modest as you. Regardless of how it feels initially, somewhere deep inside yourself you know that you are worthy of this, so smile and take it all in. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want to be laid back and patient, but something inside you is pushing forward. It’s as though you know you’re supposed to be somewhere else and you can’t wait to get there. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Plans are vulnerable to getting foiled by the smallest typo or miscommunication. Double-check times, dates and locations to make sure everyone is on the same page. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is an exciting new interest in your life, and this is taking up more and more of your mental space. Let the excitement you feel spill into all areas of your life. You make the world better by following your

COUSIN’S DYSPEPTIC WIFE SPOILS FAMILY FESTIVALS
DEAR ABBY: Every year for the last six years, I have hosted a family gathering at my home. Each and every year, my cousin’s wife “Jodie” does everything possible to ensure that we all know she’s upset about something. She’ll sit on my couch as far removed from the family as possible, grumbling under her breath to her husband. Jodie never says more than four words to me (the hostess) the entire time -- none of which are “thank you” -- then she feigns food poisoning! (No one else gets sick.) This has been going on longer than the six years I have hosted this event. My question is, would it be tactless of me to ask my cousin to leave his wife home next year? I am not the only family member who is disgusted with Jodie’s behavior. I think we’d all have a better time if she wasn’t there. Would that be wrong of me? -- SICK OF CODDLING HER IN ILLINOIS DEAR SICK: For a person to repeatedly act the way you have described is not normal behavior. Your cousin’s wife may suffer from some signiﬁ cant emotional problems. Is no one in your family close enough to your cousin to express concern about it? While it would, indeed, be tactless to tell him to leave his wife home instead of bringing her to a family gathering, it might be less so to mention gently that you have noticed she doesn’t enjoy herself when she visits -- and that her attendance isn’t compulsory. Then listen to what he has to say because it may be enlightening. DEAR ABBY: My sister “Blanche” has always depended on men to support her. She was married brieﬂy, and after her divorce started going from one man to another. I can’t count how many relationships she has been in. Her children are grown, but when they were young they had to endure their
mother’s lifestyle. Blanche has just moved in with another man. She’s 45, and has no job or money, but has gotten good at selling her pity story. Unfortunately, her new boyfriend, “Stanley,” is an old friend of mine. Although we haven’t been in contact for years, I’m concerned about his dating my sister. He’s going through some hard times due to the loss of a family member. Blanche homed in on this and moved in with him to “help him grieve.” Abby, I know the damage my sister can cause. It never turns out pretty. She uses people to get what she wants, then if it turns sour, she becomes a stalker. She has refused my recommendations for counseling. I feel obligated to let Stanley’s family know about Blanche’s history. She’s trying to prevent me from contacting him because she doesn’t want her past revealed. What do you suggest? -- FEARFUL SIS IN MISSOURI DEAR FEARFUL SIS: I strongly recommend that rather than telling Stanley’s family your sister’s history, you tell Stanley directly. To do otherwise would be interpreted as an underhanded attempt to break up his romance, would not be appreciated, and could only bring them closer. DEAR ABBY: Help! If one spouse snores, the other can’t sleep. Please print some solutions to this problem that have worked for your readers. We sleep in separate beds almost every night. -- SEEKING SLUMBER IN SANTA BARBARA DEAR SEEKING SLUMBER: When one spouse snores so loudly that it keeps the other awake, it could be a symptom of a serious medical problem. While my readers may be kind enough to offer home remedies, my advice is that the snorer should consult his or her physician to ﬁnd out what’s causing it.

BERLIN -- BHS Boys 4- The Berlin coaching staff goes over what needs to be done in the final seconds of regulation. (JEAN LEBLANC PHOTO) Berlin’s Curtis Arsenault grabbed 12 rebounds and scored 26 points and teammate Sam Aldrich was a perfect 6-6 from the foul line, lifting the Mountaineers to a hard fought 68-61 overtime victory over a very game Interlakes basketball team, in front of a packed gymnasium in Berlin Tuesday. The win advances Berlin to a quarter-final match-up against Raymond in Berlin on Friday. “Well-I guess the fans got their money’s worth,” said a relieved coach Don Picard. “The first half I have to give a lot of credit to Inter-Lakes, they came out and had their intensity level where it needed to be right from the start. They capitalized on opportunities and we missed assignments. Our game plan was to stay in front of Gagnon, then deny him the ball once he gave it up. His first two looks, we had nobody around him, uncontested 3’s for him are like layups the way he has been playing (he had 34 against Gilford in the play-in game). Offensively we were tentative, not getting our feet ready to shoot in anticipation of the pass.” By the time the horn sounded, the visitors led 33-23 at intermission. David Gagnon had 18 points for the Lakers. Arsenault ten points and Michalik three hoops, led the Berlin offense. Interlakes had played a play-in game, while the Berlin boys had been inactive for 12 days and it showed. The Lakers played a 1-2-2 zone and were very active defensively. That forced Berlin to be very deliberate on offense. Offensively, Interlakes was red hot from the floor, and that
did not enable Berlin to get into their fast break offense. “I’ll keep this game film forever,” said Picard. “The first half defines what it looks like to play ‘not to lose’ rather than playing to win. In the third quarter we played what may have been our best quarter of the year. The intensity level finally reached what it needs to be for tournament play. I really don’t have an answer as to why it wasn’t there from the start. If nothMountie Curtis Arsenault scores the first bucket of overtime. The Mounties overcame a 10 point half time deficit to win in overtime. (JEAN LEBLANC PHOTO)
ing else, the first half served as a big time wake-up call. The fact is that we haven’t played a complete game this year with the intensity level that we had in the third quarter. We have had good quarters, good halves, but never 32 minutes of playing at the highest level.” Picard summarized his teams’ play in the third quarter. “In the third I liked the way Michalik went to the basket. Drouin did a good job getting his feet ready to shoot and knocked down a couple of 3’s. Defensively, we put Tyler on Gagnon and he scored 4 points in the 3rd and 4th quarter combined. We were more attentive to where he was and completed the assignment, not losing him, and not giving him any easy looks. We were able to get stops which led to transition. There is no question in anyone’s mind that the transition game is our best offense. All of our guys are at their best when it’s a fast break situation, we share the ball well, fill lanes, and expect to shoot when open. We didn’t get the stops in the first half and never got that part of our game going and had to go against their 1/4 court defense.” Berlin assumed the lead 47-41 by outpointing the Lakers 24-8 during the third quarter.

BERLIN -- Berlin Sabers 7 – Rochester Blackhawks 1 On Sunday, January 30th, the Berlin Pee Wee II team travelled to Rochester to face the Blackhawks. In the first period, Berlin came out ready to play. Center Nick Ansaldi got things going by scoring twice in two minutes with the passing help of Hunter Fauteux. Less than two minutes later Corey Hood carried up the puck and slid it over to Noah Schoenbeck. Schoenbeck was able to find the back of the net to make it 3-0. There was 16 seconds left in the period. Saber Rylie Binette slammed the puck home off an Ansaldi pass to make it 4-0 after one period of play. For the second period, Rylie Binette got the Berlin’s only goal of the period by going coast to coast by herself to make it a 5-0 game. In the last minute of the period, Rochester finally broke through the Saber defense by getting their only goal of the game to make it 5-1. In the third period Berlin’s offense did not slow down. Ansaldi took a hard shot about 10 feet from the net to get a hat trick and make it 6-1 game. Before the final buzzer, Alex Mailhot got a breakaway and made a beautiful pass to Ansaldi in front of the net. The Berlin sniper then finished the play by getting his fourth goal of the game, making the final score 7-1. Berlin’s goal tender, Leo Croteau, finished the day with 16 saves. Berlin Sabers 2 – Lebanon 2 On Sunday morning, February 13th
the Berlin Saber Pee Wee II Team travelled to White River Junction to face the Lebanon Storm. In the first period of play, the Storm came out fired up and scored first at the eight minute mark, to take the 1-0 advantage. The Sabers fought right back and got a goal of their own with Dylan Richmond stealing the puck away from the other team and passing it over to Rylie Binette. Binette found an open Nick Ansaldi in front of the net to score, tying things at 1-1. Berlin was not finished for the period with only one goal. Fortyone seconds were left in the period. Ansaldi and Alex Mailhot worked together and generously passed back and forth. Mailhot took the final pass, getting the goal to take the lead 2-1. In the second period, the Storm finally tied up the game with three minutes left in the period. For the remainder of the game both teams were able to stop any more scoring threats. For Berlin, net minder Leo Croteau had his best game of the season, constantly turning away shot after shot and going post to post within the same play. Throughout the game, the entire Berlin squad truly worked together as a team to help Croteau defend their net. The Pee Wee II team consists of Damon Ruel, Corey Hood, Jacqui Hallisey, Travis Lamontagne, Rylie Binette, Nick Ansaldi, Kyle Frenette, Alex Mailhot, Dylan Richmond, Emma Schoenbeck, and Leo Croteau.
Berlin Pee Wee 1 game results BERLIN -- Berlin at NHEast In the first period, swift action saw both teams on the board. Berlin’s Justin Vien scored unassisted to light the lamp very early in the period. NHEast would be up leading 2-1 at the end of the first. The second period was full of action at both ends of the ice. John Arguin scored for Berlin with Vien earning the assist to tie the game 2-2 after two periods of play. The third period was a barn burner. Berlin’s Arguin scored his second of the game. Team mates, Trevor Labrecque and Justin Vien got the assists respectively. This game ended deadlocked at 3-3. Berlin vs. Concord Both goalies were kept busy in this game. Berlin’s Matthew Morin saw a game total of 36 shots. The only goal for Berlin was in the third period. Cameron Cochran scored from Evan Valliere and Owen Dorval. Unfortunately, that would be the only goal for Berlin. This one ended with Concord on top 5-1. Berlin vs. NH Avalanche The Berlin offense came out firing on all cylinders in this game. Trevor Labrecque started things off for Berlin with the assist going to Justin Vien and a 1-0 lead. This duo would feed off each other several more times during the game. That would be the lone goal of the period. Berlin’s offense of Evan
Valliere, Owen Dorval, Cam Cochran, John Arguin, Trevor Labrecque and Justin Vien were relentless. In the second period, Berlin’s Vien scored twice. Both assists went to Labrecque and John Arguin getting the second assist on the second goal. Two more Vien goals put the locals up 5-0 during the third period. On his first goal of the third period, Labrecque earned the assist. Line mate Cam Cochran got credit for the second. The last goal of the game was unassisted by defensman Nathan Trull. Goalie Matthew Morin saw a total of 17 shots and was super between the pipes. The defense of Nick Hamel, Nathan Trull, Meagan Accardi and Jensyn Dandeneau was rock solid. The game ended Berlin 6-Av’s 2. Berlin at Rochester What is most always an interesting meeting because of its storied rivalry, this Berlin and Rochester game proved to be no different. Penalty minutes were many on both sides. Berlin scored once each period to leave with the win. In the first period, the goal went to Labreque from Vien notching the assist. During the second period, play got rougher. However, Berlin’s John Arguin put things back into perspective scoring a goal assisted by Trull. Goaltender Matthew Morin was kept quite busy in the Berlin goal. see PEE WEE I page 18

the quarter came on an Aldrich offensive rebound and base line jumper as time expired, sending the packed gymnasium to their feet in celebration. In the fourth quarter, the Lakers stayed tough, climbing back into the game on the strength of Matt Otis’s 10 points. The score was tied 53-53 with 3:07 to go and stayed that way until Arsenault made a key steal and converted the lay-up for a 55-53 lead and 48 seconds to play. However, Otis took the ball to the hoop for the Lakers and converted his base line runner and was fouled for an old fashion three-point try. There was just 34.4 seconds left. Otis missed the foul shot and the Lakers were whistled for a lane violation and Berlin had possession of the ball. The Mounties called time out with 18.4 seconds to play. Berlin got the ball into the hands of Arsenault. Arsenault’s fade away jumper bounced off the rim as time expired. The game was headed for overtime. The four minute session was a text book session for the Mountaineers. Berlin rattled off the first three hoops to take a 61-55 lead. The Mounties then held the ball out front, forcing Interlakes to come out of their zone and go man to man defensively and begin to foul. Down the stretch, Aldrich was perfect from the foul line going 6-6. It was a good thing that he did. Otis fouled out for the Lakers and Gagnon
resurfaced from NBA three-point range, connecting on two shots and just missing on a third. On that miss, Interlakes stopped fouling and Berlin ran out the final seconds to earn a very tough win. “I was very pleased with our free throw shooting in the overtime, as a team 7 for 8, and Sam Aldrich went 6 for 6,” concluded Picard. “We get Raymond on Friday. “They are a very good offensive team with several good shooters. We will need 32 minutes of a high intensity level on Friday night.” For the game, the Lakers shot 26-51 from the floor(7-17 from behind the arc) and just 2-5 from the foul line. Gagnon was the game high scorer netting 28 markers, while Otis chipped in at 18 points. Berlin shot 25-58 and a game difference 15-22 from the foul line. Arsenault 26, Michalik 14, Drouin 11, and Aldrich 10 points all reached double digits.

BERLIN— Berlin’s Justin Tempke made it to the finals in the Northern New England Golden Gloves tournament but unfortunately came short of taking a title. “He did a superb job,” said trainer Dick “The Destroyer” Kimber. Kimber said Tempke’s opponent in the finals for the super heavy weight division was a little bit bigger than him, and was able to overcome him in the last round. “He lost the fight, but it was a great fight,” said Kimber. Tempke said he trained for four months for the tournament, and although he didn’t win this year, he’s going keep working. “Next year, I’ll go for it again,” said Tempke. He fought in the super heavy weight division, and made it through two other fights before making it to the finals. In the meantime, Tempke said he plans to participate in the Rocky Marciano Tournament in September. Tempke was among the three men who fought in the boxing tournament. Jacob Plourde fought in the 141 division and even though Kimber said he put up a good fight, be didn’t PEE WEE I from page 16

Kimber said 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; and PJ Cyr, of Gorham, helped the fighter prepare by sparring with them. Roger Villeneuve’s Heating Oil and Sanschagrin Logging sponsor them. Nate Trull, Jensyn Dandeneau and Meagan Accardi without success. During the second period the Saber’s Arguin put one past the Cyclone’s goaltender. Jensyn Dandeneau earned the assist on the Arguin goal. The final goal of the game came off the stick of Berlin’s Trull. The Cyclones tried to rally but fell short by a trio of goals. The game ended Berlin 4-Cyclones 1.

BERLIN -- On Wednesday, February 16, at the Berlin High School, an assembly was held at 11:30 a.m. in the gym. Senior, Krystal Bunnell, New Hampshire’s state officer for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) put together this assembly with her aunt Donna Hanley focusing on drug abuse and the affects. Approximately 450 students attended the assembly as well as the Berlin Charter School. Many area adults, family, friends, and teachers also attended. The presentation touched upon peer pressure, addiction, tolerance, racism, major outcomes of drug use, a persons understanding toward different experiences, life choices, consequences and ways to get help. “My goal by the end of the assembly was to open people’s eyes to the dangers of drug addiction and how lives can be affected critically. I am hoping to touch and affect at least one person in the gym. I wanted to make a difference in the school, even if it is a small one,” said Bunnell. Hanley and Bunnell recited a perMVP from page 11

The presentation concluded with a standing ovation by the audience. There were many thoughts and emotions that ran through people in the school. Many students approached Donna and Krystal after the assembly to share their thoughts. A student stated, “I thought that the presentation was really eye opening. It showed the consequences of a persons actions and it shun a light on the fact that it is a chain reaction. It doesn’t just affect the person, but the ones around them as well.” “I believe that my aunt and I met our goal to affect and touch someone in the audience. I feel very accomplished. All the hard work paid off.” Schools around New Hampshire have asked Krystal and Donna to share their story in their schools.
