observance stifled

By Maddie Hanna Monitor staff Seth Bader, the Stratham attorney convicted of murdering his ex-wife in 1996, has lost a federal lawsuit accusing the state of depriving him of the ability to practice his religion by transferring him to the prison in Berlin. Bader, an Orthodox Jew, attended Sabbath services twice a month, celebrated Jewish holidays and met regularly with a rabbi while at the state prison in Concord, where he served the first 12 years of his life sentence. In December 2010, corrections officials transferred Bader to the prison in Berlin, where Jewish services aren’t offered. Although the prison’s chaplain tried to find volunteers to lead services, he had little success: The prison had just one other practicing Jewish inmate, see PRISONER page 22

Ex-hostages press for damages from Iran

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — For more than three decades, David M. Roeder has watched as successive American presidents have struggled to engage Iran and, in his view, completely failed to hold it accountable. Now 72 and a retired Air Force colonel, Roeder was among the 52 Americans held hostage for 444 days after Iranian radicals seized the American Embassy in Tehran in 1979, an event that he believes established Iran’s ability to get away with bad behavior ever since. Roeder and other former hostages say that the Iranian government never paid for what was done to them. Their longstanding grievance in many ways frames the quandary that the Obama administration faces in balancing the impulse to punish Iran with the hope of normalizing relations. On Jan. 20, 1981, the hostages were freed under an agreement called the Algiers Accords that was negotiated by President Jimmy Carter but not implemented until the day he left office. The agreement allowed companies to recover billions of dollars in Iranian government funds that the United States had frozen after Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, an ally, was forced from power. But it barred the former hostages from seeking damages for their imprisonment.

SANFORD, Fla. (NY Times) — George Zimmerman, a former neighborhood watch volunteer arrested on murder charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old, returned to protective custody at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility after his first court appearance on Thursday afternoon. Zimmerman, 28, who was charged by a special prosecutor on Wednesday evening with seconddegree murder, stood silently during the brief proceeding, dressed in a gray jumpsuit, next to a new lawyer, Mark M. O’Mara. Zimmerman said only “Yes, sir” to the judge’s questions about the charges and about his lawyer.

The judge said he found probable cause to move the case forward and set an arraignment date for May 29. O’Mara said in a brief interview on Wednesday night that his client would plead not guilty. Speaking to reporters after the hearing, O’Mara said he had decided to postpone his formal request for Zimmerman to be released on bail at this hearing out of concern it might “increase the fervor around the case” at a time when he is trying to “calm this case down.” He said he would request bail at another time for Zimmerman from the county trial judge who was appointed to handle the case. He said he needed to make sure that Zimmerman had a safe place to live.

Activists report no pullback of forces in Syria BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — After months of intensifying bloodshed, an uncertain cease-fire backed by the United Nations and brokered by the special envoy Kofi Annan went into effect in Syria early on Thursday with mutual accusations of scattered infractions by the antagonists but none of the by-now-familiar reports of shelling by government forces

and mayhem in major cities. “I am encouraged by reports that the situation in Syria is relatively quiet and that the cessation of hostilities appears to be holding,” Annan said in a statement from his Geneva office. “Syria is apparently experiencing a rare moment of calm on the ground.” Annan asked the Security Council to authorize the

deployment of United Nations monitors in Syria, assuming the cease-fire holds. Susan E. Rice, the American ambassador to the United Nations and the current president of the Security Council, said members would be meeting later to negotiate the terms. “It is our interest and shared aim to negotiate that text as swiftly as possible,” Rice said.

3 Hillside Ave. Berlin • 752-7225

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — With North Korea poised to launch a long-range missile despite a widespread international protest, the Obama administration is trying to play down the propaganda value for North Korea’s leaders and head off criticism of its abortive diplomatic opening to Pyongyang in late February. The White House is readying a blunt response to a launching by North Korea, which will include, as it has warned, the suspension of a food aid agreement announced just six weeks ago, a senior official said Wednesday. The United States also plans to rally worldwide condemnation of the launching, which Pyongyang insists is intended to put a satellite into orbit, but which Washington says would be a breach of North Korea’s obligations. The United States will not seek further sanctions in the United Nations Security Council, this official said, because North Korea is already heavily sanctioned and Washington needs to preserve its political capital with China and Russia to win their backing for future measures against Syria and Iran.

N.H. man impresses ‘Ellen’ on dance floor

BURBANK, Calif. -- Dover man Kevin McEneaney was the “Dancer of the Day” on Thursday’s “Ellen” show after he was randomly picked to dance during the show’s warm-up. McEneaney said he was in California visiting his son when his son got them VIP third-row tickets to see the show. He said his wife is the big “Ellen” fan -- he’d never seen the show until the taping. But when he was picked to take the

dance floor, he knew what to do. Ellen Degeneres, the show’s host, was very impressed. “There was so much commitment, and so much energy,” she said of the dance. McEneaney had a quick question and answer session on the show with Degeneres, when he told her he was from New Hampshire. “I don’t know what they have in the water in New Hampshire,” she said. —Courtesy of WMUR

Woman accused in genocide released CONCORD — A judge is releasing a New Hampshire woman from prison as she awaits a second trial on whether she lied about her role in the 1994 Rwanda genocide to obtain citizenship. A federal jury deadlocked last month on whether 42-year-old Beatrice Munyenyezi commandeered a roadblock during the genocide and designated

Tutsis for rape and murder. She has been imprisoned since November 2010. Under the new conditions, she would be subject to electronic monitoring and confined to her home. Prosecutors said they will try her again in September and oppose her release. They said she now has even more reason to flee. —Courtesy of WMUR

Become a Papertown Patron and give back to Berlin on Fri. May 4 To the editor: This is a letter for all the people who once lived Berlin, who grew up in Berlin and now live somewhere else. This a letter for people who are reading this in PDF form online because they want to know who won the broomball tournament and what is going on with the old JC Penney block. This is a letter for people who, no matter where they live now, still care about Berlin. Those of you who live in Berlin are constantly supporting local events, fundraisers and charities. These are all worthwhile but the community is relatively small and the demands are high. We are hosting a special event to reach people who grew up in Berlin but now live elsewhere to meet, connect, and support the Kiwanis Club of Berlin Scholarship fund. As you travel around the state, it is impossible not to meet someone who grew up in Berlin and most have fond memories especially of their friends and family from the area. This sense of a shared background and heritage connect us with ties that last a lifetime. Inspired by the “Berlin Santa” and the Craig and Linda Labnon Rydin scholarship, and other recent kind gestures by Berlin alums, we created the Berlin Natives Fundraiser. The goal of this event is for many people to join together, as a team, giving just a small amount, to make a big difference. The event, which seeks to

bring together Berlin Natives of all ages who now live outside of Berlin, will be held Friday May 4, at Fratello’s Restaurant in Manchester, NH. The event will feature a keynote address by Dennis “Red” Gendron, Berlin born and raised, assistant men’s hockey coach at Yale University entitled “Start with Why.” There will also be musical entertainment by Berlin’s own “LogJam.” The cost is $40 per person, which includes dinner. There will be a cash bar. If you cannot attend the event, donations are welcomed. Most importantly, the dinner will raise funds for the Kiwanis Scholarship enables area students to attend college, broaden their horizons and reach their personal goals. Past scholarship winners have gone on to earn PhDs in analytical chemistry, become physician’s assistants, teachers, financial advisers, and Black Hawk helicopter pilots. These students may or may not come back to Berlin. That is the point, we do not yet know what they will do and how they contribute and give back to Berlin, the state, country, or the world. This gives them an opportunity to let us find out. Let me end with my personal why. Growing up in Berlin, I was always encouraged to do my best and I also knew that I could become what I wanted to be on my own terms—starting a girls hockey team with friends, becoming an artist, writ see PATRON page 5

Moments

What are the moments you remember? If I were to ask you about a moment - or two, or three, or more moments – in your life that you remember, that you cannot ever forget, that are so indelibly etched in your memory that all the winds and waters of time will never be able to wear away, what would immediately come to mind? This past Monday, April 9, was my 77th birthday. I spent much of the day reflecting on such moments in my life. To my great surprise and delight, there were many such moments to remember, far more than had been expected. (Try it for yourself. You, too, may be very surprised and delighted.) I will by-pass the obvious ones: the night I first asked my future wife out for a date, our marriage, the birth of our two sons. I wrote about the incident with our older son by the lake in West Brookfield, Massachusetts, in last week’s column. For this column of moments to remember, I turn to an idea suggested by a favorite author. He wrote: “If your life were made into a movie, and that movie had an appropriate sound track, and I bought a CD of that music, what kind of music would it be? What mood would it leave me in when I played it? What would I recognize? Could I dance to it?” A most interesting challenge, don’t you think? Well, I’ll give it a try. My CD would begin with a young boy’s soprano voice singing into a microphone in a radio studio in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His elementary school music teacher had somehow managed to have his class perform a program of music over one of the radio stations there, and he had been selected to be the soloist on a song called “Little Mohee.” It was around the same period of time that the boy soloist became “Al Jolson, Jr.” The film biography of Jolson’s life had just been released, and the young boy had been deeply influenced by the famed entertainer’s style. He had gone the whole nine yards, buying black wig, blackface makeup, and white gloves, and trying to make his still changing voice sound as much like Jolson’s as possible. It was during this time that he received one of the best pieces of advice that he would ever receive. His church put on an old-fashioned minstrel show as a fund-raiser, and, of course, “Al Jolson, Jr.” made an appearance, singing “Rock-a-bye Your Baby.” At the end of one of the performances, someone from the audience came up to that boy – me – and said,

“You know, Dick, you do a terrific Jolson, but I kept wanting to hear Dick Conway sing.” I stopped being “Jolson,Jr.” soon after, and concentrated on being me.

Shortly after high school, I would be given a confirming piece of advice by my voice teacher, McClurg Miller. The MGM production of “Showboat” had recently been released. One of the show’s highlights was the singing of “Old Man River,” by baritone William Warfield. I had been deeply affected by the song and Warfield’s singing of it. When he came to Pittsburgh to do a solo recital, my teacher encouraged me to go to hear him. Warfield’s concert was one of the defining moments of my life. His rich voice filled the auditorium with such glorious sound that I knew immediately that this was what great singing was all about. This was vocal artistry at its best. I remember going back to Mr. Miller and saying to him, “I want to learn to sing like William Warfield.” “No, he replied gently, “you don’t want to sing like Bill Warfield. You want to sing like Dick Conway. But you do want to sing with the artistry of a Bill Warfield.” “Old Man River” would be on that CD. An aria from Felix Mendelssohn’s highly dramatic oratorio “Elijah” would be on that CD also. My senior year in college, I was chosen to sing the role of the title character in our college choir’s performance of Mendelssohn’s masterful musical interpretation of that challenging moment of confrontation with the followers of Baal for the famed prophet of the Old Testament. An aria from J. S. Bach’s solo cantata “Ich habe genug (It is enough)” also would be on that CD. The cantata was the centerpiece of my senior recital. Its second aria, “Schlummert ein (Slumber on),” is one of the most beautiful melodies ever written by the hand of man. I have had the opportunity to sing it many times since. I could think of no more appropriate piece of music to be played at my death than that gentle expression of blessed rest and peace. I am running out of space for this week’s article, and there is yet more music to put on my CD. You’ll just have to read next Friday’s column to find out what else made the final cut.

I’m Not Mitt Romney

Last week Politico reported that, ever since announcing his re-election bid, President Obama’s campaign has been struggling to find a slogan to sum up his reason for running. He’s cycled through “Winning the Future,” “We Can’t Wait,” “An America Built to Last,” “A Fair Shot.” Bruce Newman, Bill Clinton’s message adviser,

was quoted as saying of Obama: “He’s all over the place.” So far, the most accurate slogan for Obama’s campaign would have to be: “I’m not Mitt Romney.” And when you consider that Romney — a former liberal Republican governor — has spent the whole campaign see ROMNEY page 5


THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Friday, April 13, 2012— Page 5

ROMNEY from page 4`

disavowing his past, for the first time in history both candidates could legitimately run on the same slogan: “I’m not Mitt Romney.” And that’s our problem. Romney has embraced the Republican budget drawn up by Representative Paul Ryan that proposes to shrink our longterm structural deficit in a way that not only would make the rich richer and the poor poorer but would deprive the country of the very discretionary spending required to do what we need most: nation-building at home. Sure, Ryan makes deep spending cuts to balance the budget in the long term. If I cut off both my thumbs, I’d also lose weight. But I’d also have a hard time getting another job. What do we need from a presidential candidate today? We need a credible plan to do three specific things: cut, tax and invest. As the economy improves, we need to cut spending, including all entitlement programs, to fix our longterm structural deficit. We also need to raise revenue through tax reform so we don’t just shred our safety nets and so we still have resources, not only for defense, but to invest in all the things that have made us great as a country: education, infrastructure, quality government institutions and governmentfunded research. Finally, the plan has to win bipartisan support, so the candidate advocating it not only wins the election but has a mandate to implement his plan afterward. The Ryan-Romney budget fails that test. As Maya MacGuineas, the president of the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, notes: It does not “protect the truly disadvantaged,” and it doesn’t put tax increases for the wealthy “on the table,” so it has zero chance of bipartisan support. Obama has proposed his own 10-year budget. It is much better than Ryan’s at balancing our near-term need to revitalize the pillars of American success, by cutting, taxing and investing. But it does not credibly address the country’s long-term fiscal imbalances, which require cuts in Medicare and Social Security. Said the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget: “The president’s budget [is] a step in the right direction on deficit reduction, but not nearly sufficient. The president’s budget would stabilize the debt as a share of the economy through the second half of the decade, but would do so at too high PATRON from page 4

ing a book—I have always felt supported in my endeavors. Yes, this support started with my family but it extended to teachers, friends, parents of friends, and even local businesses that sponsored sports teams, proms and homecoming parades. Now that I am an adult, I see what a unique and valuable experience growing up in Berlin was. I want to give back what small amount I can so that I can let other students know, their hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed and

of a level and without the necessary entitlement reforms to bring down the debt over the long-run. ... It is highly disappointing that the president didn’t go further in his proposals and offer a plan that is large enough to deal with the nation’s fiscal challenges in the medium and long term.” Or as Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner testified to Congress: “Even if Congress were to enact this budget, we would still be left with — in the outer decades as millions of Americans retire — what are still unsustainable commitments in Medicare and Medicaid.” So the president, too, lacks a longterm plan to cut, spend and invest at the scale we need in a way to win enough bipartisan support to make it implementable. This gets to my core difference with the president’s strategy. I believed he should have accepted his own Simpson-Bowles deficit commission because it offered a plan to cut and tax that was at the scale of the problem and enjoyed at least some G.O.P. support, had the overwhelming backing of independents and even Nancy Pelosi, the minority leader, now says she felt “fully ready to vote for that.” If Obama had embraced the longterm deficit commission, he would have had a chance of combining it with some near-term stimulus — investments in infrastructure — that would have helped the economy and grow jobs. Without pairing it with SimpsonBowles, Obama had no chance of getting more stimulus. Obama says his plan incorporates the best of Simpson-Bowles. Not only is that not true, but it misses the politics. Republicans will never vote for an “Obama plan.” But had Obama embraced the bipartisan “SimpsonBowles,” and added his own stimulus, he would have split the G.O.P., attracted gobs of independents and been able to honestly look the country in the eye and say he had a plan to fix what needs fixing. He would have angered the Tea Party and his left wing, which would have shown him as a strong leader ready to make hard choices — and isolated Romney-Ryan on the fringe. Instead, Obama is running on a suboptimal plan — when we absolutely must have optimal — and the slogan “I’m not Mitt Romney.” If he’s lucky, he might win by a whisker. If Obama went big, and dared to lead, he’d win for sure, and so would the country, because he’d have a mandate to do what needs doing. that they can achieve their dream of going to college.

Gateway Gallery Mats come in a wide range of colors, styles and surfaces. While most applications are fine with paper surfaces. There are times when something more dramatic is desired - a fine oriental painting amy call for a silk mat, a sailing image may want a mat that resembles a piece of sail. Mats come in wider ranges of color in paper of course, but silks, linens, denims, suede, hides and grass cloths all offer interesting alternatives. You should expect to pay more for these specialty materials. Mats can also be added in multiples giving more dimension and visual interest to your art. Remember these are added

to enhance your special pieces not to overpower it, if you see the framing first - simplify! Frames should pleasingly set off your art or treasured memories. While your decor may dictate a particular style never let it dominate the piece you wish to display, you want the item(s) to be the center of interest after all it is the art itself or the memories that you wish to preserve. The maxim “when in doubt do without” clearly works when framing. It is important to keep in mind the environment the art will live in - is it going into a bathroom - steam, into a kitchen - cooking oils, is there a smoker in the house, let your framer know.

10 Home-Maintenance Tips for Spring By Dwight Barnett, Scripps Howard News Service After a long, dark winter, spring’s bright sun and warm winds are, well, a breath of fresh air. The only downside? All that sunshine spotlights your leaffilled gutters, cracked sidewalks and the dead plants in last year’s flower beds. Dwight Barnett, a certified master inspector with the American Society of Home Inspectors, shared this checklist to help you target the areas that need maintenance so you can get your chores done quickly, leaving you time to go outside and play in the sunshine. Check for loose or leaky gutters. Improper drainage can lead to water in the basement or crawl space. Make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation and are clear and free of debris. Low areas in the yard or next to the foundation should be filled with compacted soil. Spring rains can cause yard flooding, which can lead to foundation flooding and damage. Also, when water pools in these low areas in summer, it creates a breeding ground for insects. Use a screwdriver to probe the wood trim around windows, doors, railings and decks. Make repairs now before the spring rains do more damage to the exposed wood. From the ground, examine roof shingles to see if any were lost or damaged during winter. If your home has an older roof covering, you may want to start a budget for replacement. The summer sun can really damage roof shingles. Shingles that are cracked, buckled or loose or are missing granules need to

be replaced. Flashing around plumbing vents, skylights and chimneys need to be checked and repaired by a qualified roofer. Examine the exterior of the chimney for signs of damage. Have the flue cleaned and inspected by a certified chimney sweep. Inspect concrete slabs for signs of cracks or movement. All exterior slabs except pool decks should drain away from the home’s foundation. Fill cracks with a concrete crack filler or silicone caulk. When weather permits, powerwash and then seal the concrete. Remove firewood stored near the home. Firewood should be stored at least 18 inches off the ground at least 2 feet from the structure. Check outside hose faucets for freeze damage. Turn the water on and place your thumb or finger over the opening. If you can stop the flow of water, it is likely the pipe inside the home is damaged and will need to be replaced. While you’re at it, check the garden hose for dry rot. Have a qualified heating and cooling contractor clean and service the outside unit of the air conditioning system. Clean coils operate more efficiently, and an annual service call will keep the system working at peak performance levels. Change interior filters on a regular basis. Check your gas- and battery-powered lawn equipment to make sure it is ready for summer use. Clean equipment and sharp cutting blades will make yardwork easier.

Best Home Improvement Projects for Spring: Cheap, Fun and They’ll Make Your Home Look Beautiful Spring is a great time to think about home improvement projects. Not only do people want to make their home look better for a ‘new year’ but, also, in times of economic downturn, some home improvement projects can uplift your spirits without killing your bank account. There are many home improvement projects you can do for spring, but these five home improvement projects are some of the best they’re fun, they’re cheap and they’ll make your home look great! Paint Your Walls - One of the easiest home improvement projects for spring is to put a new coat of paint on your walls. You can paint just one room or your whole house. It’s amazing what a new coat of paint can do to make your home look really pretty. I just spent New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day painting my apartment. I only have 4 rooms, so it took me just the two days but my apartment now looks gorgeous. From a new dramatic color (deep red, bright green anyone?) to a simple ivory or light gray, painting your home’s interior walls will really give your home a boost. All you need is a couple of paint brushes, a paint roller and a paint tray, some masking tape and paint (a gallon of paint will do one coat on an average size room). The total cost for me was $22, but I live in Thailand. The average cost in the US for all the supplies will run around $25 for a gallon of inexpensive paint, plus another $20 for paint brushes/ rollers etc. I like Sherwin-Williams interior paints as they’re great quality and are easy to clean with a damp cloth. Home Depot has tons of paints

though, and the Home Depot website has great information on which paints are the best. Clean Out Your Closets - A free home improvement project for spring is to clean out all your closets. Go closet by closet and sort through all your things. Make three piles, ‘Keeping’, ‘Giving Away’ and ‘Throwing Away’ and put each item in one of these piles. Then, put all your ‘Keeping’ things back in your cupboards and closets, but this time stack them neatly. If you don’t mind spending a little bit of money, you can buy storage containers for as little as $4 that will make your closets and cupboards look even neater. Over the New Year, I organized all my closets. I can now find everything because it’s all in its’ place and, with only 6 storage containers that cost me less than $15, my closets and cupboards now look lovely. The Container Store has great products for storage at very reasonable prices. Trim and Clean Out Flowerbeds - I’m always amazed at how many people let their flowerbeds go wild. Spring is a perfect time to clean out flower beds as the debris of winter can be pulled out of them and thrown away. You can also trim back all your plants in preparation for the new growing season and then plant some new bedding plants so that, by summer, your garden will be full of brightly colored flowers. Bedding plants for an average garden size run around $20-$30, depending on type and how many you buy, but just a few can really spruce up your garden. Replace Light Switch Plates - One

thing I noticed with my apartment was, over time, the covers or plates on my light switches were looking grubby. Some of them also had paint on from previous home improvement projects. So, this New Year, I decided to replace all the light switch plates with new ones. You can buy light switch plates for as cheap as $2 for the plain plastic ones or as expensive as $30 and up for designer switch plates with beautiful pictures or for hand painted ceramic ones. I bought some of the plain cheap ones and a few hand painted ceramic ones and, boy, does my apartment look nice! New Backsplash in Your Kitchen - A really fun spring home improve-

Tankless water heater repair and installation for your home We all know hot water is very much a necessity. Most of us have water heaters at home and do not give it a second thought, we just assume we will have hot water on a daily basis until…you are standing in the shower and the water goes cold because someone in the other part of the house decides to turn on the water, trying to get the dishes done after dinner and no hot water or we get ready for that therapeutic evening bubble bath so we can unwind or that morning shower to get us going and there is no hot water. If this sounds familiar it may be time to

SHOOTING from page one

Police Colonel Robert Quinn, Dalton Police Chief Mario Audit, and Whitefield Police Chief William Colborn said all three men, whose identities have not yet been released, had apparent gunshot wounds. The identities of the men were withheld last night pending notification of family members. Police said autopsies for the two deceased men will be scheduled. Ainsworth made headlines in January 2010, when he was married to Joseph Besk, an inmate at the Northern NH Correctional Facility in a prison ceremony. At the time Besk was serving a 10-20 year sentence on felonious sexual assault charges. The two men met in prison while Ainsworth was also serving a 10-year sentence, the last five of which was spent in the same cell as Besk. The marriage was believed to be the first same sex marriage in the NH Correctional System. It is unclear whether Ainsworth or Besk were involved in the Thursday afternoon incident. According to the NH sex offender online registry, both men resided at the Whitefield Road address. Police said the investigation is still ongoing but there is no reason to believe the public is in danger.

DILBERT

by Scott Adams

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your best is all you can do, and that’s a good thing. You’re learning that “your best” is getting better and better and actually doing quite a lot. The difference you make will be readily apparent. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A friend is going through something difficult. You may not want to bring up what happened, but it would be a disservice to all involved if you didn’t. So speak up, and be available to what happens next. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll ride a harmonious wave with your loved ones. You’ll be quick to forgive, and so will they. This tone of mutual care and respect will make life easier for all. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can’t always be around your favorite people, which makes the times when you are around them more meaningful. Someone you enjoy immensely will become available to you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll feel like the biggest fish in the pond. You may wonder whether it’s time to jump into a lake and take your chances. That time is coming three weeks from now. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 13). Your creative powers will be as strong as your more analytical assets, which is the right combination for making excellent decisions. You’ll have the good kind of stress in May, the kind that makes you want to work harder and get things done. In June, love graces your life in ways that make you want to take pictures and tell the world. Taurus and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 3, 9, 30 and 17.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today, you are like the glittering jewels of Messier 9. Your energy is vibrant and exciting, even though it is also ancient wisdom that stretches back through the ages. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s hard to relate to perfection. Trying to hook onto it, one easily could slip down its glossy finish. So don’t worry about it. Your quirks, flaws and mistakes will make you interesting. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be careful of whom you let speak for you or work on your behalf. As well meaning as a person may be, no one is you. No one else knows the words inscribed on the walls of your heart. CANCER (June 22-July 22). As much as you’d like to see a special event come together, you’ll also realize that sometimes the expense and trouble outweigh the glamour and excitement. You’ll make a decision regarding this today. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Balance, beauty and harmony aren’t just for painters and dancers. Apply these principles to anything you do today, and you’ll raise the endeavor to the status of “art form.” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The trains, planes and automobiles speed by you, towing your imagination along. Where are they going, and who is on board for the ride? Soon a full-blown case of wanderlust will set in. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People will be quite attentive to your needs now. You appreciate this and could even spend an hour writing out thankyou notes, making gracious calls or simply holding a space of gratitude in your heart.

FAMILY LOOKS FOR GENTLE WAY TO EASE AWAY FROM GRANDPA

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married for 16 years and have two teenagers. “Mom” died two years ago, and my husband is an only child. How can we tell my widowed father-in-law that we need a weekend to ourselves? “Pop,” who’s 87, lives an hour away and drives to see us every weekend, staying until Monday afternoon. We don’t doubt that he’s lonely, although he does play bridge twice a week and has dinner with friends occasionally. We love him dearly and would never want to hurt his feelings, but we long for a weekend for “just us.” How do we ask Pop not to visit? We believe he’s still in mourning over the loss of his wife of 60 years. We don’t want to add to his heartache. -- TORN IN TEXAS DEAR TORN: You do need to talk to your father-in-law and set some boundaries. Accomplish it by setting a predetermined visitation schedule that allows you time alone with your husband and nuclear family without him being present. A way to get that message across would be to say: “Pop, we love you, but we need some time to ourselves, so let’s schedule your visits for twice a month. YOU pick the weekends.” DEAR ABBY: The neighbor above my apartment has a snoring problem. My bedroom is directly below his. Around 10 every night he starts snoring to the point that it sounds like an elephant lives above me. I have to sleep with my TV on and sometimes the radio. Please tell me what to do. Should I confront this neighbor? Should I complain to management? Or should I just live with it? -- FED UP IN NEW JERSEY

DEAR FED UP: Write your neighbor a letter and explain to him there is a problem. He may not know that he snores. If he’s snoring steadily, but stops for 20 or 30 seconds before starting again, it could indicate that he has a serious medical condition that should be discussed with his doctor. If the apartment above you has poor insulation, a carpet under his bed could muffle some of the sound. Playing a tape of “white noise” could block it out more restfully than your television or radio. Or, because adequate sleep is so important, you could ask a real estate attorney about the possibility of breaking your lease and leaving without penalty. DEAR ABBY: I am a 23-year-old woman who will graduate from college soon. I am looking to undergo a post-college makeover. I want to find some clothes that will work in the professional world, but also mix for more casual environments. Taking a recent college grad’s budget for this into account, what signature pieces should a young female have in her wardrobe? And what tips do you have for building a great collection over time? -- YOUNG, BROKE, BUT FABULOUS DEAR Y.B.F.: Start with two suits -- one with a jacket and matching skirt, the other with jacket and slacks. Make both suits interchangeable and in a neutral color -- black, navy or beige -- whatever looks best on you. Add a couple of blouses and sweater sets, several pairs of shoes and a good handbag. Make sure to look for “classic” styles rather than trendy, and you will have the basis for a business wardrobe and the beginning of a great collection.

you believe a tankless hot water system is right for your home? There is no reason why it should not be. The reasons for having a tankless verses not having a tankless system certainly outweighs the disadvantages. Lets review some of the reasons why installing a tankless heater could be very beneficial: Tankless hot water heaters are energy efficient. You can cut your heating cost to up to 30%. Now think about this for a moment…If your hot water is costing you up to 20% on a conventional hot water tank and your saving up to 30% on a tankless hot water system and the tankless is also eco -friendly well, this sounds pretty beneficial. Water Heaters” work differently from the conventional water heaters. With a Tankless water system the water is heated only when it is needed. When you turn on the faucet that is when the Tankless heating system kicks in and at the same time the water is heated (using a heating element). That is why a Tankless hot water system is also called “Instantaneous or Demand. “

With tankless water heaters there is constant flow of hot water, so this allows everyone in your home to have hot water at the same time, wow….no more being deprived of hot water in your home. It does not matter whether two or more faucets are running at the same time. But keep in mind speak to your professional plumber so they can advise you on what you may need as far as a whole house type of heater or what your options are by installing two or more of this type system to meet instantaneous hot water demand. You should know tankless water heaters are safer because the system does not store water that can be a breeding ground for bacteria such as Legionella. Keeping the water temperature at an appropriate temperature is important to keep these type of bacteria‘s from thriving. Preventive maintenance is still periodic same as a conventional heater but the cost is lesser. The next great advantage of a Tankess water system if you do what the manufacturer requires, it can last up to 20 years and still maintain its efficiency.

tions and begin interviews in early June. The ad will list the salary is dependant on qualifications. Collins, who is currently serving in a part-time capacity, was paid $72,362 in 2011. The ad will also state the person hired as administrator will be required to live in the county-owned administrator’s house located on the grounds of the county complex in West Stewartstown. That requirement puts the commission at odds with the county delegation, which voted last month to put the house up for sale once Collins moves out this summer. A majority of the delegation argued there is no need to require the administrator to live on-site given modern communications, such as cell phones, allow for constant contact. The delegation approved subdividing the two-acre housing lot from the rest of the county property and selling it. At the March budget meeting, State Rep. Duffy Dougherty, (R-Colebrook) estimated the house would sell for $160,000 to $200,000. He said selling it would put it on the tax rolls and eliminate the

cost of maintaining it. Members of the commission challenge whether the delegation has the legal authority to subdivide the property. Collins asked the commission if it wanted to use Primex, the county’s insurance risk management entity, or the Local Government Center to help it recruit a new county administrator. She said Primex offers its services free while the LGC charges a fee. Either of the two organizations would help prepare a detailed job description, recruit candidates, and review applications. Commissioner Paul Grenier said the commission wants to see what it receives for applications first. He said he expects the body will try to settle on five or six finalists to interview. He said at the point, the commission may use Primex or the LGC to help review candidates. Commissioner Tom Brady said the commissioners have considerable experience with the hiring process, noting they have recently hired a finance director, corrections superintendent, and nursing home administrator. He said the commission is familiar with the process Primex uses.

and volunteers from Concord said they were unable to make the trip north. Bader sued the state under a federal law prohibiting the government from imposing burdens on a prisoner’s religious practice. But local conditions, not prison restrictions, are to blame for the Berlin facility’s lack of Jewish services, according to a decision issued last month by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. In denying his appeal, the court said Bader’s problems “derive from a lack of outside clergy, volunteer visitors, and practicing co-religionists” not a prison decision to preclude visits from rabbis or limit the number of Jewish inmates. Bader could argue the prison’s decision to transfer him to Berlin caused his current problems, but by that logic, he could also argue the state’s refusal to grant him parole had burdened his religious practice, the court said. The implications of accepting Bader’s argument are “immense,” the court said. “There are several million prisoners in the United States; many would likely prefer some other prison in the jurisdiction and many could plausibly claim that transfers would be more conducive to the practice of their religion,” the court said. Bader’s attorney, Michael Sheehan, said yesterday the court “went out of its way” to make a slippery-slope argument. “I don’t think that was the right analysis,” Sheehan said. The law that formed the basis of Bader’s lawsuit - the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act - “was written to make these claims easier,” Sheehan said. Bader never alleged the prison transferred him to Berlin out of retaliation, Sheehan said. The transfer came a week after he was written up for having classical music CDs and other personal items contrary to prison rules. He was never found guilty of a disciplinary violation, however, because he was apparently allowed to have the items by prison staff, Sheehan said. Instead, Major John Fouts said he was concerned Bader had “undue influence in other areas of the prison” and had been developing relationships with prison staff he “might exploit later,” according to the court’s decision. “I think at the end of the day, Fouts was uncomfortable with Seth Bader,” Sheehan said. While the court determined the transfer was legal, it also said the state “would do well to consider” whether Bader could be safely transferred back to Concord. Sheehan said he hasn’t spoken to prison officials about that prospect, and prison spokesman Jeff Lyons said there were no plans to transfer Bader. Bader was found guilty of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder for shooting his ex-wife, Vicki Bader, in the head in 1996. His appeals of his convictions have repeatedly been rejected. In November, he filed petitions in Coos County Superior Court seeking a new trial, according to news reports. Those petitions were rejected, Sheehan said.


Ed Fenn School struggles with AYP subsets BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM — Although the school district as a whole made Adequate Yearly Progress in their standardized testing for the year, the Ed Fenn School did not and will now enter year two of their School In Need of Improvement (SINI) designation. Mirroring the issues Berlin described with its school results, Ed Fenn Principal Karen Cloutier explained that the school in general met the AYP benchmark in both reading and math. Where it fell short, she told the GRS Cooperative School Board on Tuesday night, was in the educational disability sub-group for both those subjects. That sub-group’s lack of AYP performance means the entire school does not get credit for the gains they’ve made under the mathematical formula used to figure the benchmark. “Overall, I’m pretty happy with how the students have performed,” Cloutier said. Gorham Middle and High School students did make AYP both overall and throughout their subsets, which means the GRS Cooperative makes AYP as a district despite the one hiccup. Cloutier presented the board with a performance index that showed that the substantially below proficient scoring and partially proficient

scoring on the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) is broken into subsets. Susbtantially Below Proficient scores are broken into three levels, 0, 1a and 1b from lowest to highest. Below Proficient scores are either 2a or 2b, again low to high. Those subsets were able to show that the bulk of the students who scored in those groups, scored in the b category — the high end of the scoring. Cloutier told the board that the 10 students scoring 1b in Math, and 11 students scoring 2b in Math, were all within one to two points of the threshold that would have moved them into the next scoring bracket. She also pointed out that of those 10, 1b students, six fell into the educational disability category. Of the 11, 2b students, just four belonged to the educational disability subset. A similar picture emerged in the reading scoring, where all four level 1b students belonged to the educational disability subgroup. Only three of the 12, 2b students were identified as educationally disabled. As AYP thresholds continue to climb, Cloutier said that the school’s Title I federal funding is what is impacted. he No Child Left Behind legislation requires that more of that funding be used for teacher training in schools who consistently do not meet AYP goals.

In Loving Memory of

Richard “Dicky” St. Cyr 2/7/47 - 4/13/11 1st. year anniversary One year ago it seems like yesterday. God saw you getting so tired and weak and a cure was not to be; so He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me.” With tearful eyes we all watched you and saw you fade away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. So many times we think of you and so many times we still cry. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died! Your golden heart stopped beating that day, your tender hands finally at rest. God took you home only to prove to all of us. He only takes the best! You fought a courageous battle and we still miss you oh so very much! Love you! Angie, Mom and family
