Communities can apply for county economic funds BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – Communities in Coos County will have the opportunity to apply for up to $5,000 in county funds for economic development efforts. In approving the 2012 county budget, the delegation appropriated $45,000 for economic development and charged the commission with distributing the funds. At Wednesday’s monthly commission

meeting, Commissioner Tom Brady said the commission had proposed a pilot program allowing the governing body of the county’s 19 communities to apply for up to $5,000. Commissioner Paul Grenier said he felt dividing up the money into small grants would not create sustained economic efforts and would be a waste of money. He noted the county had previously used $15,000 to help fund Tri-County Housing

and Economic Development Director Max Makaitis. Berlin and Gorham had contributed additional funding for the position. Grenier noted Makaitis has done a lot of work to try and redevelop the Groveton Paper mill site that the county funding had helped to cover. He asked who was going to work on the Groveton project if the county funding for Makaitis is withdrawn. Brady noted his town of Jefferson will

American dream goes global (NY Times) — Samir N. Kapadia seemed to be on the rise in Washington, moving from an internship on Capitol Hill to jobs at a major foundation and a consulting firm. Yet his days, he felt, had become routine. By contrast, friends and relatives in India, his native country, were telling him about their lives in that newly surging nation. One was creating an e-commerce business, another a public relations company, still others a magazine, a business incubator and a gossip and events Web site. “I’d sit there on Facebook and on the phone and hear about them starting all these companies and doing all these dynamic things,” recalled Kapadia, 25, who was born in India but grew up in the United States. Last year, he quit his job and moved to Mumbai. In growing numbers, experts say, highly educated children of immigrants to the United States are uprooting themselves and moving to their ancestral countries. They are embracing homelands that their parents once spurned but that are now economic powers. Enterprising Americans have always sought opportunities abroad. But this new wave underscores the evolving nature of global migration, and the challenges to American economic supremacy and competitiveness.

100 tornadoes in 24 hours records are from 1886 to present

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

WOODWARD, Okla. (NY Times) — The tornadoes were unrelenting — more than 100 in 24 hours over a stretch of the Plains states. They tossed vehicles and ripped through homes. They drove families to their basements and whipped debris across small towns throughout the Midwest. In some areas, baseball-size hail rained from the sky. And yet, in a stroke that some officials

have attributed to a more vigilant and persistent warning system, relatively few people were killed or injured. As of Monday morning, there were six confirmed deaths from the weekend storms in Woodward, a rural community about 140 miles from Oklahoma City. Local emergency management officials said on Monday that four children were among the victims and that 31 people

had been hurt, with injuries ranging from minor wounds to those requiring hospitalization. A spokeswoman for the state’s chief medical examiner identified five of the victims as Frank Hobbie and two girls, ages 5 and 7, all of whom died after the tornado hit their mobile home park, and Derrin Juul and a 10-year-old girl, both of whom died in a house a few miles away.

Afghan forces end Taliban Media firms sue to force attack that shook capital opening of Zimmerman file KABUL, Afghanistan (NY Times) — The complex attacks that immobilized much of Kabul and touched the main cities of three eastern Afghan provinces ended Monday morning with 39 of the attackers killed, 16 of them in Kabul, according to senior Afghan officials. Life slowly returned to normal in the shaken capital as Kabul residents ventured out on foot and in cars. Those passing by the unfinished buildings commandeered by the insurgents near the Parliament and Embassy Quar-

ter slowed their cars and craned their necks to see the top floors where much of Sunday’s violent drama unfolded, stretching on into the early morning. Inside the buildings, there were unexploded grenades, shattered bits of rocket launchers and bullet casings from the attackers as well as the Afghan crisis response units and their Norwegian special force mentors. Given the sustained firefights, a remarkably small number of civilians were killed nationwide, just five, officials said.

(NY Times) — Lawyers representing more than 20 media companies on Monday asked the Florida judge overseeing the trial of George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch organizer who killed the teenager Trayvon Martin, to unseal the court file. The Seminole County judge who presided over Zimmerman’s brief court appearance on Thursday agreed to a request by Mark M. O’Mara, Zimmerman’s lawyer, to keep documents related to the case private. State Attorney Angela B. Corey did not object to O’Mara’s request during the hearing. In an eight-page motion, the lawyers for the media companies, which included The New York Times Company, argued that the records were improperly sealed because O’Mara did not submit evidence showing that closing them was necessary to prevent a “serious and imminent” threat to the administration of justice.

forecasting for the six New England state. Gittell said he has also worked on economic issues for the last six New Hampshire governors. Noting his long interest in economic development and higher education, he said the CCSNH trustees reached out to him and suggested being chancellor would give him an opportunity to enact some of his ideas. Gittell said he wants to look at ways to improve the alignment of higher education and the economy. He said one of the strengths of the community college system is there are seven colleges spread across the state. He said that allows them to align educational training programs with industry on a local and regional basis. Gittell stressed he is interested in preparing students not just for today’s economy but also for the economy of the future. “A lot of our students …. they’re going to be working for the next twenty, thirty, forty years so we want to prepare them for that economy – for employer’s needs in the future,” he said. Gittell said many of the manufacturers that have survived the economic downturn are in advanced manufacturing which he noted combines technological skills with hands-on manufacturing skills. He said students will increasingly need technology skills like software programming to be able to do the precision manufacturing. As the economy starts to turn around, Gittell said companies are beginning to look for skilled people to hire and he wants to make sure there is a trained workforce available in the state. He said he wants the college system to work closely with industry to fill their workforce requirements as a means of expanding opportunities for residents and improving the state’s business climate. In addition to advanced manufacturing, Gittell said he sees future opportunities in renewable energy and community health care. Many positions, he said, will be middle skill positions, requiring more than a high school education but not necessarily a four-year degree. He said the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has predicted 40 percent of new jobs between now and 2025 will be middle skill positions. At the same time, Gittell said the liberal arts and science programs are

important to provide a broad education. He said the system has worked to strengthen articulation agreements that allow community college students to seamlessly transfer their associate degrees into the four-year university system. He noted that a large number of students would not be able to afford a secondary education without the community college system. The college system last year saw its budget cut 20 percent by the legislature and Gittell said he does not see any improvement in the short term. He favors reaching out to industry for corporate contributions and tuition-based training programs. If the community college system does its job right, Gittell said industry should benefit from the workforce training it provides. He is working on legislation that would allow companies that donate to the college system to get a tax credit on their Business Profit Tax. Federal grants are another revenue source he would like to pursue, pointing to the recent $20 million National Science Foundation grant that will fund a joint research effort that includes White Mountains Community College. At her annual informational dinner, Eneguess acknowledged these are tough times but said it is important that the college continue to innovate. She noted White Mountains Community College has worked closed with federal prison officials to prepare local people to compete for jobs in the new Berlin prison. She revealed the 2012 graduating class will be the largest in the college’s history. Graduation is scheduled for May 18 and U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte has agreed to be the commencement speaker. Eneguess described some of the efforts the college undertakes to introduce area middle and high school students to the college. She reported an alumni group is being formed to raise funds for scholarships. Katherine Doherty, director of learning resources, did a presentation on the library. While one of the smallest in the college system, Doherty reported it is one of the busiest. Attendees, including CCSNH trustees, Berlin Mayor Paul Grenier, Reps. Yvonne Thomas and Bill Hatch, and a host of business and community leaders, enjoyed a buffet prepared by the college’s culinary arts students.

Berlin’s Day of Caring is Friday, May 18 To the editor: The Moving Downtown Forward initiative is looking to start off the summer season with a fun clean-up day in downtown. We invite you to volunteer for Berlin’s Day of Caring scheduled for Friday, May 18. We would like volunteers to show up at Bickford Place Park around 8:30 a.m. armed with rakes, shovels, brooms, gloves and muscle. We are always in need of wheelbarrows, so bring one if you can. You will be assigned a site somewhere in the downtown area, and we will do our best to match your skills or special needs with that site. Whatever your talents, we will put them to work. Each site will have a team leader easily identified by a red bandanna. We will need volunteers for weeding, trimming, spreading mulch and general cleanup activities in several downtown pocket parks and green space areas. There will be opportunities to either work in the morning or afternoon. At the end of the day

everyone will be treated to a wonderful barbecue at Bickford Place Park at 4:30 p.m. kindly provided by Lloyd Murray of The White Mountain Chalet. There are a few dedicated volunteers who spend the entire summer making sure our flowers and shrubs in the downtown area look spectacular, let’s all try to spend a few hours getting things prepped for the upcoming summer season. Any time you can lend will be greatly appreciated. Your efforts on behalf of Berlin and the downtown community will be visible to all who look or drive by. We appreciate your willingness to donate your time and effort. Please contact the Berlin Main Street Program office at 752-6246 to sign up for this Day of Caring so that we can set up a schedule with team leaders matched with volunteers Remember, this event is rain or shine.

Guest Column By Executive Councilor Ray Burton

EPA Clean Air Mercury Standard Good For North Country Economy More than ever, improving the North Country economy is one of my top priorities. While there is no silver bullet, we do have silver buckshot. We can enhance our pristine outdoor environment for residents and visitors and we can replace job-draining oil and propane imports with job-creating, locallyproduced wind, wood, and energy efficiency. The Environmental Protection Agency’s new Mercury air pollution standard will help us achieve both. The greatest remaining form of unregulated air pollution is Mercury – along with arsenic, chromium, nickel, and other toxic gases – released directly into the atmosphere largely by 400 old, coal-fired power plants located in states upwind from New Hampshire. Mercury and these air toxics cause cancer, neurological damage such as reduced IQ, heart disease, asthma attacks, and premature death. Mercury from these coal plants has polluted all of New Hampshire’s land and fresh water bodies and harmed New Hampshire wildlife dependent upon them. A new study finds that mercury in a wide-ranging number of birds and bats is high enough to cause physiological and reproductive harm. Onequarter of freshwater fish tested for mercury had levels so high that eating them would pose a health risk to women of childbearing age and young children. Fish consumption advisories now apply to all NH fresh water bodies. These old coal plants also belch out smog and microscopic particles that make Coos County air unhealthy to breathe during over ten days each year. Way back in 1990, Congress knew about these issues and ordered EPA to regulate Mercury and air toxics. Finally in December, after twenty years of delay, EPA released the mercury and air toxics air pollution standard. This new standard will eliminate 90 percent of power plant mercury air pollution, preventing as many as 11,000 premature

deaths, 130,000 asthma attacks, 4,700 heart attacks, and 540,000 lost days of work due to illness each year. By 2016, the Mercury standard will generate health benefits of between $37 billion and $90 billion each year, delivering $3-$9 in health benefits for every dollar spent to reduce pollution. The Mercury standard will not reduce the reliability of our electric system. It gives utilities sufficient time to comply by installing cost-effective pollution controls already being used by the best performing power plants. Power from uneconomic coal plants can be replaced with excess capacity from natural gas plants that are currently being run at less than full capacity. Longer term – and here is where economic and jobs benefits for the North Country are created – greater use of energy efficiency and clean wind and wood power can affordably replace old coal plants. There is also an issue of fairness here. Coal utilities wanting a free pass on their air pollution have been able to block the national Mercury standard for two decades. So, seventeen states have adopted their own power plant Mercury standards, New Hampshire being first to do so in 2002. In response, Public Service Company of New Hampshire created hundreds of construction jobs installing a pollution scrubber on its Merrimack Station coal plant. While we’ve cleaned up our act, air pollution continues to blow into our state from Midwest power plants. This is why we need a national Mercury standard. Unfortunately, the new national Mercury clean air standard has come under harsh attack in Congress, with more attacks in the works. Please thank Senator Kelly Ayotte, Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and Congressman Charlie Bass for standing up for New Hampshire and voting to defend the national Mercury standard. We should encourage Congressman Frank Guinta to join the fight for healthier air and clean energy jobs in New Hampshire.

Is this what voters in this country want for the next four years? To the editor: In the eight years before President Obama the Bush administration took over a budget surplus and gave this country a huge deficit (trillions of dollars) by giving large tax breaks to corporations and to the wealthiest people in this country. At the same time they started two wars that were paid for by borrowing money from China and other countries. They let the largest banks and Wall Street bring this country to the brink of bankruptcy and we the working people had to bail out these institutions with our hard earning tax dollars. When the president took over after the two thousand eight election this country was loosing 700,000 jobs a month because of the Republican’s economic policies and now they expect

President Obama to reverse that trend in three years while saying no to everything he tries to do. He already created more jobs in these last three years then the Republican’s did in the last eight years prior. The president has pushed regulations to keep theses financial institutions from repeating the mayhem they created and now these same republicans want to eliminate the regulations that have been put in place. Now that the economy is doing better theses same Republicans are going back to ideology, they want to do away with, contraceptives for women (the pill, etc.). They say they are against abortion, if they do this they will bring on more abortions. They also want to defund see WANT page 5

ogy at the University of Maine, Orono, where Stever also announced, she has received a track and field scholarship. Jaylan Parent-Ongle was nominated for the award by guidance counselor Christine Lemoine. Lemoine’s remarks were read by Judy Lemelin who noted that the senior is the kind of person who always holds herself accountable. Compassion and empathy are among her strong suits, Lemelin said, pointing out that Parent-Ongle focuses on making her school and community better. She is planning a career in Event Management and will attend Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island in the fall. Marian Santy and Robin Ross, introduced the final award winner, Kellee Heinemann. Santy described the teen as a “dedicated servant of Jesus Christ and her fellow man.” Ross called her a “defender and befriender of the underdog.” The women described Heinemann’s efforts to serve a mission in Uraguay that required raising the funds herself, as well as the many ways she volunteers in her own community. Heinemann will continue her service after high school by joining the Air Force. All the awardees received letters of congratulations from Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) with the two college bound students also receiving an invitation to apply for internships with her office.

Sylvia Evans Award. She was nominated by Sandra Lemire, a RSVP volunteer. Malone was recognized for the outstanding contributions she has made to women and families in the community, not just in her job, but as a volunteer with Relay for Life, American Red Cross Blood Drive, the local food pantry, Androscoggin Valley ATV Club, Northern Forest Heritage Park and many, many, more. She has a history of volunteering, which started at a young age, said RSVP Program Director Kathy McKenna. Malone was, at one point, compared to the Energizer Bunny, as one who “just keeps going and going, or should I say giving and giving.” Joining Malone in receiving special honors were three high school seniors, Kellee Heinemann of Community Bible Academy, Jaylan Parent-Ongle of Gorham Middle High School, and Shannon O’Neil of Berlin High School. All three teens were extolled for their leadership and service to their communities, despite their diverse interests and plans. O’Neil was referred to as a quiet leader who never looks for recognition.

apply for money to develop a web page promoting all the businesses in the town as well as new signs and promotional maps. Commissioner Burnham Judd said for small towns like his community of Pittsburg the money is valuable. He said communities can also submit joint applications. He suggested Groveton, Berlin, and Gorham could jointly seek $15,000 for Makaitis’ position. County Administrator Sue Collins noted the Groveton Regional Economic Action Team requested $10,000. She said they will be notified that any application must come from the town board of selectman. Brady said he expects the commission will receive over $45,000 in requests. Collins suggested UNH Extension Service may be able to help the commission score applications. She said she will send a letter to every town in the county informing them of the program. Applications will be due the first of June. NOTRE DAME CDBG REQUEST Makaitis requested the county’s support in applying for a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant for the conversion of the former Notre Dame high school building in Berlin into senior housing. The county successfully applied for a CDBG for the project last year but Makaitis said his agency, Tri-County Community Action Program, was not able to get all of the remaining funding to go forward. The total project cost is estimated at $7.5 million. Makaitis said the project narrowly missed receiving a $4.8 million package of tax credits and forgiveness loans through the N.H. Housing Finance Authority. He said the NHHFA is doing two housing projects this year and he is confident the Notre Dame project will score

high. He said there is currently a waiting list of 114 people trying to get into existing senior housing in Berlin. CAP also relied on a number of other funding sources including the $500,000 CDBG. Makaitis said CAP cannot carry over last year’s award but must re-apply for a grant this year. He said the 32-unit development would employ about 60 people in the construction phase, which he said will take about 16 months. Commissioner Judd said the county had promised the town of Pittsburg it would apply for a $500,000 CDBG for its water system upgrade. But he noted that will not be ready until next year. Collins said the Notre Dame project would use up the county’s eligibility for a CDBG for housing but it could still apply for an economic development CDBG. The commissioners agreed to allow CAP to apply for a CDBG through the county. A public hearing will be scheduled for the commission’s May 16 meeting. EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT GRANTS The delegation in March approved adding a $1,000 line item for emergency equipment in each of the 12 unincorporated places with fund balances. Organizations providing emergency services in those places are allowed to apply for up to $1,000 for equipment. Collins handed out an application form she developed for organizations to use. She said that the Mount Washington Observatory is interested in applying for money for emergency radios to use on the mountain which is in Sargent’s Purchase and the Gorham Emergency Medical Service has inquired if it is eligible because of the services it provides to unincorporated places in Pinkham Notch. Collins pointed out the com-

mission has already approved allocations for the unincorporated places of Cambridge, Success, Kilkenny, and Atkinson & Gilmanton Academy Grant. The commission approved the form and the county will advertise it is accepting applications from organizations. REQUEST TO LEASE COUNTY BARN The commission took under advisement a request to lease the county barn at West Stewartstown. David Santamaria, who leases the county fields, said he would like to lease the county barn to store hay and pumpkins that he grows on the county property. The East Colebrook man said it would be easier if he could store hay and pumpkins in the barn along with some fertilizer. Last year, Santamaria submitted the winning bid to lease the county fields for 5 years. He said last year he planted 25 acres but was CDBG from page one

Street, sharing a building with the Family Resource Center and SAU 20 Administrative office. Cloutier said the center does not want to move far from its current location and would like to stay within walking distance of the schools and library. Potential locations to be looked at include the former Rite Aid building and former Laconia Savings bank as well as others in the immediate Main Street area. She stressed that there is no interest in moving out of Gorham citing that there is great need in Gorham and the surrounding communities for daycare, pre-school and after school programs. The GCLC currently has a license for 35 children and has more than

unable to use 14 acres because of flooding that lasted into summer. The commissioners were supportive of the idea but wanted the county’s insurance carrier to review the request. COUNTY LAND FOR SALE The commission is putting up for sale three parcels of land in West Stewartstown. The three properties are a 5-acre parcel at the intersection of Route 3 and Back Pond Road, a 52-acre parcel off an abandoned road, and a 115-acre landlocked wood lot that has been recently harvested. Abutting landowners will be notified of the sale which will be advertised. PLANNING BOARD REAPPOINMENTS RECOMMENDED The commission will recommend the delegation reappoint John Scarinza of Randolph and Mike Waddell to three-year terms on the county planning board. 70 enrolled. The children attend on a staggered basis, she explained. Cloutier added that she has gotten calls from families moving to the area to work at the new federal prison and has had to put them on a waiting list. Donna Lane of the Community Development Finance Authority pointed out that should the GCLC move out of its current building, any new tenants would primarily have to serve low to moderate income residents because that project was also funded with CDBG monies. The selectmen also approved updating and readopting a Housing Community Development Plan and Anti Displacement Plan, both of which are requirements to apply for and accept CDBG funds.

Middle Earth

Main Street’s love child/bad boy is now forty years old or more (it was the 60s, who remembers?) Way back then, we carried bell-bottoms, beads, tiedyed shirts, incense, posters, waterbeds and unmentionables, the public was unsure if we were a cultural threat or simply amusing. We’ve aged, yet remain unmoderated, unpredictable and unrepentant in our bold selections of gifts. The lis is

long. Good things are: Silver, jewelry, home decore, candles and oils, fairies, gargoyles and dragons, ethnic, stained glass, tapestries, art prints, men stuff and lingerie, women’s home companions and unmentionables! Unusual varied gifts to please a nun to a pole dancer, a stoner to a banker! In, short, we’re a fun shop with a flavor of a country store on acid. And the public seems to like it! 752-7400.

Recreation Dept. revolving fund explained BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM — Town Manager Robin Frost took a minute at last week’s meeting of the board of selectmen to explain how the new Recreation Revolving Fund will work. The fund was created by the voters at town meeting in March. Frost told the board that now that the citizens have given the authority, the revolving fund will be used to collect fees and charges for services and facilities of the recreation department. That means, money that previously went to the general fund for these purposes will now go to this new fund, where it can be used only by the recreation department. “It’s our hope that with the use of this fund, summer recreation programs can be self-funded,” she said, noting that the selffunding would not happen this year, but could see gains. The account is in the custody of the town treasurer, Frost said, and expenditures have to be approved by the selectmen. In other business, the selectmen approved borrowing up to $450,000 in a Tax Anticipation Note (TAN) this year. Frost noted that last year the TAN did not have to be accessed until the fall and interest in only charged on the amount that is accessed.

By Holiday Mathis be compared. Because two things are next to each other doesn’t mean there’s a logical intrinsic relationship between those two things. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone is trying to sell you, and you’ll feel the squeeze. The thing about marketers is that if they can’t identify a need, they manufacture a demand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Strive for wide-eyed awareness. If your eyes are closed, you can fall upon the very thing you’ve been searching for and not see it. You’ll pinch yourself metaphorically to make sure that all of your senses are awake and ready. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are smart, generous, insightful people at the core of your circle. If you’re wondering who, it’s because you haven’t yet met some of these people. New friends are attracted to your high integrity level. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A situation is not what you thought it would be. You may let go of all of your hard preparation in favor of being present with what the moment needs. You can do this because you are truly confident in your abilities. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 17). This year you’ll be energized by the same challenges that used to stop you in your tracks. You’ll employ new skills, and your game just keeps improving. You’ll focus on your loved ones’ needs through the next six weeks, connecting with them on deep levels. Enjoyable work and romantic moments fill your summer. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 10, 40, 39 and 18.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone is defending passionately an argument they know can be defeated. Don’t take the bait. This is a tricky game, and it’s not worth your time to participate in it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do you constantly edit yourself? It gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? That’s why it’s such a tremendous relief to be around people who completely accept you for who you are. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The day features some silliness and strange entertainment. Just because someone is weird doesn’t mean they won’t make a stellar friend. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even games that are usually fun can turn quite dull if you know you’re going to win. Today, love will be a game, too. It will be important to get plenty of challenge into your personal life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You stay on track by thinking in rather black-andwhite terms. Each decision you make brings you either closer or farther away from your goals. With every move, you’ll ask yourself, “Which is it?” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll do as you intend to do. The success or failure of your actions is irrelevant. What’s important is that you follow through, honoring your strong convictions. Action increases your confidence. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll use language in a way that expands, guides and directs people’s actions and feelings. You’ll say “I love you” and send a person’s mood to the highest stars. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As you go about your day comparing A to B, note that not everything should

EXTRA COUPONS LEFT ON SHELVES CAUSE MORE HARM THAN GOOD

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 43-year-old veteran of the grocery industry. I am also an associate of one of the premier supermarkets in the country, and I disagree with your response to “Chicago Clipper” (Feb. 18)! Coupons are a necessary evil and are graciously accepted, but they create an abundance of work for retailers. It takes countless hours of sorting, logging, filling out forms, mailing and receiving to be reimbursed for the face value of the coupon. This is hardly a benefit to the grocer. The abuse and fraud associated with coupons adds up into millions of dollars. When a customer leaves one on a shelf for the next shopper, it usually ends up on the floor. So we now have a slick surface that someone can slip on and fall. When they are placed on an item in the dairy or meat case, they inevitably fall to the bottom and clog the drains, which causes water backups -- another safety hazard -- not to mention it’s trash we must fish out. All of this takes time and money away from the associates performing our duties in a very low-profit industry. By leaving an unwanted coupon on a store shelf for the next customer, Chicago Clipper is NOT “paying it forward.” She’s adding to the problem. So, please, folks, keep your coupons in your purse, wallet, pocket or coupon book until you get to the checkout line. -- FLORIDA BUTCHER DEAR FLORIDA BUTCHER: Thank you for pointing out to my readers and me some of the problems coupons may create. Your sentiments were repeated by many retailers. However, other shoppers and retailers offered suggestions that may help to eliminate the problem, including: coupon exchanges, donating them to the military, posting them on Freecycle, Craigslist or Facebook, etc. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I am a coupon user. I am also a grocery store

employee. I constantly have to pick up coupons left by customers who are “paying it forward” or “being generous.” Not only are they a safety hazard, but they make our store look unkempt. We pride ourselves in maintaining a high standard of appearance. We actually clean up more coupons than those we redeem. Why not hand the extra coupons to your checker and ask that they be offered to the next customer? As for litterbugs who leave expired coupons laying around, every check stand is equipped with a garbage can, and an employee will be more than happy to throw out your trash if you ask. -- STORE MANAGER IN MONTANA DEAR ABBY: I leave coupons for others, but I often go one step further. If I see someone with the item in his or her cart, I’ll offer the coupon directly to that person. So far, I have met pleasant people who are happy to get a break at the cash register. I have also met people who have told me how delighted they were to find coupons on shelves. -- MARIE IN MAINE DEAR ABBY: I’m a widow with a 20-year-old car and I accidentally smashed in its front end. When I got home and my neighbor saw what had happened, he spent his next weekend at a wreckage yard buying all the necessary replacements. The following weekend he reassembled my car to perfection. Would he take any money for his efforts? No! Abby, there are wonderful people in this world and he is certainly one of them. And incidentally, he is a Navy captain on active duty. -- LEE IN SAN DIEGO DEAR LEE: So your guardian angel wears a Navy uniform! He’s not only an officer and a gentleman, but also a master mechanic. You are one lucky lady, and he is a sweetheart.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860

BERLIN -- Claire Beatrice Dignard, aged 51, passed away on April, 9, 2012 at the VNA Hospice House in Concord, NH, after a brief illness. She was born on June 14, 1960 in Berlin, NH., the daughter of Wilfred Aldee Dignard and Pauline (Gagne) Dignard. Claire was a member of St. Anne’s of Good Shepherd Parish in Berlin. She was a graduate of Berlin High School’s Class of 1978 and of Becker Junior College with an A.S. degree in Animal Science. She continued her studies at the University of New Hampshire, Durham where she received a Bachelor’s degree in Art Studies. Claire worked for many years at the Coos County Nursing Home in Berlin as an activities aide and was a certified resident coordinator. Prior to that she lived and worked in southern New Hampshire where Claire applied her art skills as a professional gallery framer and artist. Claire continued to create, sell and donate her artwork via her business, Water Dog Graphics. She taught art classes at the Currier Museum School and as well as in art therapy classes with the residents. Claire had a lifelong passion for animals and a solid commitment to the Portuguese Water Dog Breed. She was a breeder, exhibitor, trainer, and caring owner for many of these dogs. An advocate and National Futurity Judge for the breed, she was an active member of, and at times an officer of, the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America, as well as their regional club. She was a master groomer, and enjoyed showing and competing with her dogs, winning many titles and trophies. Claire has spent several decades committed to having her dogs available to the “The Georgie Project” and their mission of genetic research across multiple generations, and

is being conducted by the University of Utah to help identify and treat genetic illnesses common in both humans and dogs. Claire’s other passions in life were kayaking and nature photography. She spent much of her free time on the waters of Northern New Hampshire. She loved sharing these passions with others and introduced many friends to these activities. Claire leaves behind her mother Pauline and a sister Therese P. Dignard, both of Berlin, NH; one brother, Roger Dignard of New Boston, NH; a nephew, Philip Dignard; nieces Marion (Dignard) Friend-Gray and her husband Owen, Anne Dignard, Lorraine Dignard; and a grand-nephew, Brahm Friend-Gray. She also leaves behind many treasured and Claire Beatrice Dignard beloved friends and cousins.

Gorham Huskies railroad Engineers in opener, 15-5

THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Tuesday, April 17, 2012— Page 19

Complete Home Maintenance

BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM--The Huskies scored seven runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, invoking the 10-run rule and defeating Woodsville 15-5 in a boys’ Division IV baseball game in Gorham Friday. It was Gorham’s opening game for 2012, and the Huskie offense wasted little time making a statement in the bottom of the first inning. The big hit came from the bat of sophomore Brady Fauteux. Fauteux’s two out two run double got the home team out to a 3-0 advantage. Gorham plated a single run in the bottom of the second inning. Senior Pat Pike drew a walk, stole second base, and trotted into third base on a pass ball. Junior Sammy Jensen knocked in Pike with an RBI hit to make it a 4-0 contest. The Engineers plated a pair of runs in the top of the third inning to cut their deficit to 4-2. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Gorham scored four times. Tyler Sanschagrin doubled, Pike walked, Jensen hit a sacrifice fly, Jon Chabot had an RBI hit, Jake St. Hilare’s hard hit ball was mis-played, and when Cody Gauthier doubled, the Huskies were on top 8-2. Woodsville responded with a three spot of their own in the top of the fifth inning. Some timely hitting, a walk, and a couple of errors fueled the Woodsville uprising to make it 8-5. The Huskie offense put on a hitting clinic in the bottom of the fifth. Patience at the plate by Gorham earned them three free paces and two hit batsmen in the big inning. Two Woodsville errors and a Pike double and a Jensen RBI hit, got the Gorham boys their 10 run victory.
