City’s boil water order catches AVH responds Berlin boil GOLD many residents by surprise to water order PRO!



4 Days Only To Get Paid Highest Cash Prices • • • • • •

BERLIN — Many residents in Berlin were surprised to learn they were under a boil water order on Thursday morning. The order was issued by the Berlin Water Works late on Wednesday, April 18. WMUR was notified Wednesday and had posted the information on their website by 9 p.m. Local news outlets, including this paper, were not notified until Thursday morning. Wal-Mart employees said they were experiencing steady sales of bottled water throughout the day on Thursday. The store had been

made aware of a potential increase in demand on Wednesday night after some workers saw the order posted on Facebook. According to a representative at the customer service desk, the store’s supply got low but was re-stocked by Thursday afternoon. Other businesses saw effects from the ban as well, with Dunkin’ Donuts remaining closed on Thursday and no coffee for sale at many local convenience stores. Restaurants along Main Street remained open. Some who were open took to Facebook to advertise, with Savoir Flare posting that they used bottled see BOIL page 5

BERLIN– In response to the recent boil order for water of the Berlin Water Works water system, Androscoggin Valley Hospital has instituted a number of steps to help protect our patients, employees, volunteers and guests from the potential exposure to E. coli bacteria. All AVH staff were sent communication of the order the evening of Wednesday, April 18, shortly after a staff member was notified by the Berlin Water Works. Hundreds of gallons of bottled water were brought on-site. AVH has a one week supply of bottled water and has added supplementary capacity given the boil order. Numerous ice chests were purchased, as was a significant amount of ice not originating from Berlin. All ice machines, drinking fountains and basins within the hospital and its off-site locations within Berlin were disabled and clearly marked see AVH page 6

Car-Freshner employees saddened by plant closing BY BARBARA TETREAULT To celebrate Sr. Pauline Sauvageau’s 60 years of service to the Church, some 90 friends gave her a big surprise party Wednesday, including a beautifully decorated cake, created by Rachel Delisle, of Gorham. Admiring the cake with Sr. Pauline, who is third from the left, are, l to r: Sr. Anne Beausoleil; Sr. Suzanne “Sue” Bourret, the Provincial of Sisters of the Presentation of Mary, Manchester; Sr. Pauline; and Sr. Helen of Notre Dame. With modest cheers, the assembled crowd welcomed the nuns as they led Sr. Pauline—all unsuspecting—into the back room of the Northland Dairy and surprised Sr. Pauline with a gathering of nothing but warm smiles and good wishes. Many of the welcomers are members of the Berlin Marie Rivier Association, which Sr. Pauline reawakened when she returned to Berlin in 1994, to serve again where in the late 1950s she taught English, Business Math, Religion and Driver’s Ed at Notre Dame High School. After leaving Berlin, she served in the Phillippines for 11 years, then returned to Woonsocket, R.I., to the convent of Our Lady of Victories, which closed in 1994, freeing Sr. Pauline to come back to Berlin to revive the Marie Rivier Association. Members of the Association are challenged to live their Christian vocation, deepen their faith by reading and praying the Word of God, and accept their apostolic task, being concerned with the poor and supporting with prayer and faith those who suffer, according to the Presentation of Mary website. They form a spritual bond without the reciprocal obligation of a legal, financial or canonical nature, according to the website. When Sr. Pauline is not working with the Marie Rivier Assocaition, she is visiting the sick at the Androscoggin Valley Hospital for Communion three days a week, or visiting the homebound to bring them Jesus and encouragement, according to Paul Croteau, of Berlin. “Her zeal knows no bounds,” writes Croteau. “She could keep an army in motion.” (GAIL SCOTT PHOTO)

BERLIN – Employees of CarFreshner yesterday said they were broken-hearted over the closing of the local plant they viewed as more of a family than a business. “Car-Freshner is our home,” said Diane Duchesne, who said she is grieving over the company’s decision to close the Berlin plant and move its production to its other two manufacturing facilities. Duchesne said she had worked at the plant on Jericho Road since it opened in 1987 and will miss the see SADDENED page 13

The Band’s Levon Helm dies at 71 (NY Times) — Levon Helm, who helped forge a deep-rooted American music as the drummer and singer for the Band, died on Thursday in Manhattan. He was 71 and lived in Woodstock, N.Y. His death, at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, was from complications of cancer, a spokeswoman for Vanguard Records said. He had recorded several albums for the label. In Helm’s drumming, muscle, swing, economy and finesse were inseparably merged. His voice held the bluesy, weathered and resilient essence of his Arkansas upbringing in the Mississippi Delta. Helm was the American linchpin of the otherwise Canadian group that became Bob Dylan’s backup band and then the Band. Its own songs, largely written by the Band’s guitarist, Jaime Robbie Robertson, and pianist, Richard Manuel, spring from roadhouse, church, backwoods, river and farm. After the Band broke up in 1976, Helm performed at every opportunity, working with a partly reunited Band and leading his own groups. He also acted in films, notably “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” In the 2000s he became a roots-music patriarch, turning his barn in Woodstock — which had been a recording studio since 1975 — into the home of down-home, concerts called Midnight Rambles, which led to tours and Grammy-winning albums.


I like walking on the edge.” —Levon Helm

Retirements dim hopes of democrats to retake House

BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — The secretary general of the United Nations gave a dark appraisal of the Syria conflict on Thursday, accusing its government of failing to carry out nearly every element of the peace plan that took effect a week ago, obstructing work by an advance team of cease-fire monitors and doing nothing to alleviate an intensifying humanitarian crisis on the ground. The appraisal, made at the

United Nations by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, came as new pressure on the Syria government was looming from Paris, where Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, attending a meeting of the Friends of Syria coalition of countries seeking to aid the Syrian opposition, called for a new Security Council resolution to enforce sanctions on President Bashar al-Assad’s government. In her remarks, Clinton

acknowledged such a resolution was likely to be vetoed by Russia, a staunch supporter of Assad, but that even Russia had recognized “that we are not in a static situation but a deteriorating one.” She also hinted at a possible NATO role in the conflict because of Syrian shelling last week across the border into Turkey, a NATO member, where thousands of Syrian refugees and armed anti-Assad groups have sought sanctuary.

India, eye on China, tests missile with longer range NEW DELHI (NY Times) — India said Thursday that it had successfully launched a missile with nuclear capability and a range of 3,100 miles, giving it the ability to strike Beijing and Shanghai and heightening fears of an Asian arms race. With the launching of the missile, called the Agni 5, India joins a small group of countries with longrange nuclear missile capability, including China, Britain, France, Russia, Israel and the United States. Agni is the Hindi word for fire. The launching comes amid growing interna-

tional apprehension about the militarization of Asia and a stepped-up strategic rivalry there between the United States and China. In March, Beijing announced a double-digit increase in military spending, and India recently became the world’s top arms buyer, displacing China, in part because China has increased it domestic production of weapons. And on Thursday, South Korea tested a missile capable of hitting anywhere in North Korea, less than a week after North Korea launched a rocket that failed minutes after takeoff.

CONCORD N.C. (NY Times) — Representative Larry Kissell slid into a diner booth here and sought to explain — with no small amount of irritation, since he has apparently been asked many times — his decision to run in his newly configured House district in contrast to two fellow North Carolina Democrats who retired rather than risk defeat in districts reshaped by Republicans. Republicans see North Carolina as the state that stands between Democrats and their dreams of retaking the House. Congressional redistricting, a decennial process that generally allows the party in power in each state to draw new lines, has not created a ton of opportunities for new seats for Republicans, as the party powers once expected. It has forced multiple House Democrats, viewing their odds in new districts as slim, into retirement. Many of those districts are now either in play or solidly Republican, making the climb for Democrats all that more onerous.

Radio personality fights to find transplant MANCHESTER — A man heard by thousands of Granite Staters every morning is in a battle for his life as he tries to raise awareness of the importance of organ donation. Andy Blacksmith brings a dose of humor to the airwaves as part of WHEB and Rock 101’s Morning Buzz team. But lately, some of the talk has become more serious. “You don’t really know it’s happening,” Blacksmith said. “You don’t really know you’re dying, really. It just happens so suddenly.” About two years ago, Blacksmith was having a tough time breathing and went to the doctor. He found out that some type of virus had attacked his heart, and the damage can’t be repaired. “Total shock,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it. I said to the doctor, ‘You mean to tell me with all the technology that’s available today, all the things you guys can do, especially with the heart, with my condition, the only option is a complete heart transplant?’” “Andy will die if he doesn’t get a

heart,” said Dr. Peter Dourdoufis of Atlantic Cardiology Associates. “There is no other real option for him.” Blacksmith’s cardiologist said the chance he will find a heart is slim, just 8 percent. His heart is failing fast. He has flatlined twice. “The morning after flatlining was a very difficult morning,” Blacksmith said. “I was really just thinking, ‘If I’m flatlining, then this is really just it. How much longer is it going to take before I’m gone completely and they really can’t bring me back?’” As Blacksmith’s name sits on a transplant list, he’s sharing his story in hopes of encouraging others to think about organ donation. “There is a tremendous shortage of transplants. A lot of people don’t make it waiting for one,” he said. “It’s an easy thing to do to make a huge difference in the lives of others.” The New England Organ Bank said 55 percent of Granite Staters are registered organ donors. Residents can sign up when they get or renew their driver’s licenses. —Courtesy of WMUR

We need God’s law running this country To the editor: As a result of all the lies that we have to listen to stated by politicians, I am proposing that a bill should be introduced into the House of Representative’s in each state and in Washington that whenever a politician speaks he or she should have to swear on the “Bible” that they are telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help them God. Most of them are lawyers and never were forced to tell the truth their whole lives. Think of it, when lawyers are involved in a trial they aren’t sworn in to tell the truth. Now that I think of it, that should become a law too. We need more truthfulness in government and in this world, in general. Instead of the people that politicians represent paying for some politician’s lies, the politician or the lawyer should have

to pay the price for lying by being held accountable for what they say and face impeachment and disbarment for lying. This country isn’t doing a very good job of surviving amidst all the lies being told by politicians who feel it is the only way of getting their point across and persuading voters to vote for them. It would make them think about the truth of what they are saying and many would think they better tell the truth. Some might still lie but the truth would eventually be found out to the discreditation of the offender. Eventually, all the lying would fade away and the United states of America and the world would be better for it. God Bless America, we need His laws running this country. H. Raymond Losier Berlin

The college that I attended was a Presbyterian Church-related one – Maryville College, in Maryville, Tennessee. Most of the most important music that I sang there, therefore, was sacred music. But not all. Every other year, voice students in the college’s music program had an opportunity to take part in the department’s Opera Workshop productions. These were small scale oneact operas, involving only a few characters, simple costuming and staging, and requiring minimal rehearsal time. Of the three in which I was participated, I had the most fun with the role of the bumbling Dr. Pandolfo, in a classic three-character chamber opera called “La Serva Padrona (The Maid as Mistress), written by Giovanni Pergolesi (1710-1736.) The plot line is simple: the doctor’s maid sets out to trick her master into marrying her, which she is finally able to do. It’s fun for one and all, performers and audience alike. One of the doctor’s arias would have to be on my CD. Church and school music occupied my life for quite a number of years after I graduated from college. I met my wife through singing in a church choir. Another member of that choir sang Ralph Vaughn Williams’ “The Call” at our wedding, now nearly forty-nine years ago. “The Call” is a short piece, only two pages long. But it is rich with thought and meaning, and I have often sung it at church services myself. That piece would have to be on the CD, also. For a few years before moving up to Northern New Hampshire, I co-founded and was music director of a five-singer ensemble we called The Musikanters. Our programs consisted of simply staged solo pieces and ensemble numbers that always included a highly popular version of selections from Meredith Willson’s classic show “The Music Man.” There are two pieces from my Musikanter days that I would put on my CD. One would be the tongue-twisting “The Nightmare Song,” a classic patter piece from the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta “Iolanthe.” Mastering that rapid fire, word-challenging comic classic, and then being told by audiences that they understood every word, was a highlight I would not want to omit. The other song would be “With You,” from “Pippin,” a show by Stephen Schwartz that is sadly undervalued. There are some wonderful melodies and beautifully crafted lyrics to be found in its score. This song is one of them.

A number of years would pass before there would be more memorable moments to put on my biographical CD. While teaching in the Nashua Public Schools, I met and teamed up with a young soprano who introduced me to her voice teacher, Susie Kuzma. I began studying voice again with Susie, and the memorable moments of music began once more. Susie encouraged me to tryout for professional singing opportunities, and it did not take long before I was chosen to play the role of Honore Lachaille in a production of the classic Lerner & Loewe musical “Gigi.” Honore has a number of wonderful songs to sing in the show. My favorite is the delightful duet he sings with his old flame, Madame Alvarez. The song is “I Remember It Well.” That would definitely have to be on my CD. In 1997, came the highlight of my professional singing career. I was chosen to play the lead role of Norman Thayer in the premiere production of the musical version to Ernest Thompson’s much beloved play “On Golden Pond.” Called “Another Summer,” it has a score that I truly believe is undervalued. Perhaps it’s all too cerebral for most audiences. I do not know, but the show has never achieved the acclaim I believe it deserves. On my CD would have to be Norman’s final duet with his wife. Norman has just been felled by a heart attack and his wife quickly has him swallow one of the glycerin tablets that are always at the ready. He recovers, and when she starts to help him to his feet, he brushes back her hand and begins to sing “Let me stand as a man to the end of the dance.” That would make as perfect an ending piece as I could ever want for my CD. Before that ending piece, however, I would want to put two other pieces on that disc. One would be my most favorite love song of all – the Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein beautifully realized masterpiece “All the Things You Are.” The other would be my own one-man version of the Mitch Leigh/Joe Darion long-running Broadway smash “Man of La Mancha.” I put my version together a good many years ago and have used it in my cabaret show ever since. Some of you, I believe, have seen and heard me do it. I believe that that little production of mine sums up who I am and what has informed my life as well as anything I could put into words.

Phony Mommy Wars Ann Romney is a good mom. She’s also a good pol. And though her people skills are far superior to Mitt’s, it turns out that Ann is just as capable as her husband of turning an advantage into a disadvantage. After the liberal strategist Hilary Rosen clumsily mocked Mitt Romney for relying on Ann to tell him what issues women care about when “his wife has actually never worked a day

in her life,” Ann smashed that lob back. Blasting out her first tweet, she said: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.” Shaken Democrats dived for cover and threw Rosen under the campaign bus. The media, worried about being perceived as favoring President Obama, jumped in on the side of the maligned Ann. see PHONY page 5

the elderly. Symptoms can include diarrhea, cramps, nausea, and headaches. Anyone who experiences these symptoms should seek medical advice. Residents are advised to bring water to a boil and then boil for two minutes before letting it cool for use, or use bottled water. Pre-boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking brushing teeth, washing vegetables, food preparation, washing dishes, making infant formula and making ice. The order remain in effect until further notice. According to the posting released by the Water Works, “bacterial contamination can occur when increased runoff enters the drinking water source.” A break in the pipes or problem in the water treatment process can also cause bacterial contamination. Though Viens could not be reached on Thursday, the posting said the department planned to retest the water and anticipated resolving the issue within 48 hours.

have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work. And people said, well, that’s heartless. And I said, no, no, I’m willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It will cost the state more providing that day care, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.” So the dignity of work only applies to poor moms? This latest kerfuffle is piffle, but it is another instance of Republicans dragging women back to the past to re-litigate issues they thought were long settled. Just as women had assumed their contraception rights were safe, they had considered the tiresome debate about working moms versus stayat-home moms over. My mom stayed home to raise five kids, and she is my feminist role model. For the most part, nobody’s casting aspersions on anybody else’s choices, which are often driven by economics. Women have so many choices that they’re overwhelmed by the stress of so many choices. The real issue is whether Mitt, a tycoon who has been swathed in an old-fashioned cocoon, understands the plight of working mothers and the rights of 21st-century women. When the Romneys got married and moved to Boston in 1971 so Mitt could attend Harvard, they set up house in a suburb, befriended other young Mormon couples and kept to their cloistered, conservative, privileged, traditional, white, heterosexual circle. Campuses were roiling with change — feminism, civil rights, antiwar demonstrations — but the Romneys were not part of that. They were throwbacks. “The parental roles were clear,” Michael Kranish and Scott Helman write in “The Real Romney.” “Mitt would have the career, and Ann would run the house.” We will see if these affluent, soonto-be owners of a car elevator in La Jolla and members of the horsey set can relate to the economic problems of regular people. Given how secretive and shapeshifting Mitt Romney is, we’ll probably have to keep eavesdropping to find out.

The water notice was posted on doors at area schools on Thursday morning, and at the White Mountains Community College water fountains in the hallways bore print outs from the news blurb posted on On the Berlin Daily Sun’s Facebook page, many readers questioned why the news had not been released to the public sooner. Water Works Superintendent Roland Viens could not be reached by phone on Thursday afternoon so a timeline or explanation of the process was not available by press time.

She pressed her advantage, scolding Rosen on Fox News. “She should have come to my house when those five boys were causing so much trouble,” Ann said. She alluded to her brave battles against breast cancer and multiple sclerosis: “Look, I know what it’s like to struggle.” But at a fund-raiser at a private home in Palm Beach, Fla., on Sunday, the night before her 63rd birthday, Ann made it clear that she wasn’t really aggrieved. She was feigning aggrievement to milk the moment. “It was my early birthday present for someone to be critical of me as a mother, and that was really a defining moment, and I loved it,” a gleeful Ann told the backyard full of Florida fat cats, sounding “like a political tactician,” as Garrett Haake, the NBC reporter on the scene, put it. It’s important when you act the martyr not to overplay your hand. If you admit out loud to a bunch of people — including Haake, who was on the sidewalk enterprisingly eavesdropping — that you’re just pretending to be offended, you risk looking phony, like your husband. (It also doesn’t fly to tell Diane Sawyer that your dog “loved” 12 hours in a crate on top of the car or that it’s “our turn” to be in the White House.) The candidate, meanwhile, continued to look phony by presenting a completely different side of himself to the wealthy Palm Beach donors who came in fancy cars to eat snapper and hear a snappier Mitt. Rather than making bland pronouncements or parsing patriotic songs, as he usually does, Mitt gave a more specific vision of a Romney White House, including the possible elimination of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, which his dad once led, and vivisecting the Department of Education. He also talked about ways he might close tax loopholes for the affluent — another matter he hasn’t been too detailed about — to pay for his cuts in tax rates. Mitt offered a different view of the value of working parents in January when he talked about how he changed welfare rules as governor of Massachusetts: “I said, for instance, that even if you

sense of family that existed among the employees. “We all helped each other through a lot of things in our lives,” she said. All but about eight of the approximately 50 people employed at the plant were women and most had worked there over a decade. While worried about future employment, Duchesne said for many workers the initial response is a sense of loss. “We’re thinking about how we’re never going to see each other,” she said. “I’m heart-broken.” While disappointed about the closing of the plant, Duchesne and plant manager Steve Dion said they had enjoyed working for Car-Freshner. “They were a great company to work for,” said Dion. The employees said Car-Freshner provided generous benefits especially health insurance and were responsive to employee needs. The company was also described as a good corporate citizen that avoided publicity for its acts of charity. “They donated to a lot of local events and nobody ever knew,” said Dion. Dion pointed out the company has offered jobs and relocation assistance to employees willing to move to its other plants in Watertown, N.Y. and DeWitt, Iowa. Those who chose not to move will be given a severance package that includes six months of pay and health insurance coverage as well as any unused vacation and sick pay. Mark Belanger, local office manager for N.H. Employment Security, called the severance package the most generous he has seen in his tenure in the North Country. Dion said some employees were upset at Car-Freshner’s handling of the closing. Employees, including Dion, were told of the company’s decision at a meeting Tuesday morning and then escorted out of the building after collecting their belongings. He said the company felt it had to protect its assets. In a press release issued Tuesday, Car-Freshner

said increased fuel and transportation costs made it no longer viable to ship product in and out of Berlin. “It just didn’t make sense economically,” said Dion, noting Car-Freshner reports demand for its Little Tree car fresheners is strong. Overall, the company said it does not expect any net job losses from the closing. The state’s Rapid Response team held an informational meeting for the employees Thursday morning at White Mountains Community College that drew a majority of the workers. NH DRED Regional Resource Specialist Beno Lamontagne said he was pleased at the turnout and said he felt a lot of information was provided. Representatives of N.H. Employment Security, N.H. Vocational-Rehabilitation, White Mountains Community College, N.H. Health and Human Services, AHEAD, Workforce Investment Act, and U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen spoke about the various benefits and services their agencies can provide. Lamontagne pledged the state will help the workers any way it can. Belanger said he is encouraging the employees to begin job-hunting immediately and not wait until their benefits expire. Once their severance benefits expire, Belanger said the employees will be eligible for 26 weeks of unemployment benefits. He said seasonal or part-time employment will help extend benefits. Belanger said the longer the employees are unemployed, statistics show the less competitive they become in the job market. He said his office will host workshops on writing resumes and interview skills to help the employees bush up on their job search skills. For companies and businesses considering expanding or starting a new facility, Belanger said the North Country has a lot to offer. He said there is a dedicated work force available with a tremendous work ethic. Since the beginning of the year, over 170 skilled workers have been laid between Isaacson Structural Steel and Car-Freshner. There are also a host of incentives such as the Coos County tax credit, N.H. Job Training Funds, and the Workforce Opportunity Tax Credit that are available to potential companies.

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams


By Holiday Mathis You have great empathy for another person’s plight. Your high level of emotional intelligence allows you to somehow understand even though you don’t have personal experience with the matter. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Thinking that you are supposed to know something will keep you from asking the questions that will lead you to really know it. If you dare to speak up, you’ll find that you’re not the only one in the room who’s in the dark. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be attuned to the sighs of the world. Sometimes sighing is an expression of letting go, and other times sighing says, “Look at me. I’m in psychic pain or longing or some other state of needing what I don’t have.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). People think they know you, but they really shouldn’t assume. You’re far too deep and complicated to be summed up with stereotypes or understood by type. Assert your originality, and show them all. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). “Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” Spoken like a true Pisces, these words by Albert Einstein may help you with your spiritual accounting today. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 20). This year you’ll put yourself out there in a bigger way. Somebody is looking for the qualities you embody, and you’ll be sought after in the weeks to come. There’s a promotion in May. In June, you express yourself beautifully, and life conforms to your specifications. You’ll replace a vice with something positive in August. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 19, 26, 8 and 45.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some people consider the colloquial “whatever” to be a curse word. It’s certainly an expression to avoid today, especially in regard to relationships that are already in a precarious place. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll have many blessings to count, and even better than that is the fact that these seem to be the blessings you most need. You’ll use your resources to serve and support the people you hold dear. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Clinging to old emotional patterns is not your style. You’ll hold your inner life up to examination. You’ll determine the patterns that need to be broken and put an end to them. Scorpio helps. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re up on the latest news, and you’re ready to participate and do what’s expected of you. That’s not to say that any of it makes you happy, as you are plugged into an artistic, objective and non-conformist vibration now. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s something you really want to do, but your progress is excruciatingly slow. This is all the more reason why you should celebrate every move you make toward your goal as a small victory. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your latest interest is in something your friends and colleagues find unfamiliar. Go forward anyway; you’ll be a trailblazer. Your sophisticated taste will catapult everyone into the future eventually. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are times when the ethereal world seems more real than the so-called real world, and indeed it may be so, especially when the moon is in dreamy Pisces. After all, most things that exist started out as mere imaginings. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

For Rent by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: My two children were in a terrible car accident and were both airlifted to a children’s hospital. My son was released two weeks later, but my daughter is still there, suffering from traumatic brain injury. Abby, I was driving the car. Why can’t my daughter have the life I took away from her? Why is she being punished and not me? -- ANGUISHED MOTHER DEAR ANGUISHED: You’re asking a question that philosophers have pondered for centuries -- why bad things happen to good people. In many cases the answer is simply “fate.” While you feel your daughter is being punished instead of you, I say the guilt you’re carrying IS punishment and it is not healthy for you or your child. Please don’t waste time flogging yourself, because your daughter needs you. Counseling may help you to come to terms with what happened. I hope you’ll consider it, as you will need every ounce of strength you can muster to help her in the months ahead. DEAR ABBY: I’m 16 and well below the average height for females. It bothers me a lot. I’m treated like a 5-year-old. I get picked up all the time, and it’s awkward talking to people because they look straight down at me -- and they never let me forget it. I try to act cool about it, but honestly, I’m losing sleep over it. I’m really self-conscious, and when I get upset people just laugh at me and say I’m “cute.” What should I do? -LOOKED DOWN UPON IN NEW JERSEY DEAR LOOKED DOWN UPON: No one has the right to pick you up or touch you in a familiar way without your permission. If this is happening at school, tell the principal about it because it could be classified as a form of bullying. It will then become the school administrator’s job to make clear

to your classmates that their behavior is not appropriate. If it’s happening outside of school, your parents should be told so they can help you put an end to it. P.S. If you work to develop your mind, you can accomplish what many short people have done -- compensate by becoming a mental giant. Do that, and you’ll become a role model that people of every size will look up to. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I are in a serious relationship. Not long ago we got on the topic of marriage and what we are looking for. He comes from a religious family and I do not. His mother says if we don’t get married in a church with a religious ceremony, she won’t consider me her daughter-inlaw and we won’t be a married couple. I want a civil ceremony, something outside and casual. Thankfully, my boyfriend agrees with me. We’re just not sure how to deal with his mom and her point of view. What should we do? -- LOOKING TO THE FUTURE IN NEW YORK DEAR LOOKING TO THE FUTURE: What you should do depends upon to what degree you want to placate his mother. Having the casual ceremony you want in the setting of your choosing, and afterward having your union blessed in a clergyperson’s study, might be a workable compromise. DEAR ABBY: What is a polite way to say: “My husband is NOT a bum; he’s a hardworking, stay-at-home dad until he can find a job that offers not only benefits, but also enough extra money to afford child care, and it’s none of your business”? -- I BRING IN THE DOUGH, HE BAKES DEAR BAKER’S WIFE: Don’t get angry. Tell the person, “My husband is a very hard worker. His JOB took a vacation.”

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

The Gorham boys set the tone in the first inning, sending Littleton starting pitcher, Josh Bogardus to the shower after just four batters.

Happy 9th Birthday Faith! Love, Mom, Brian, Hannah, and Maddie.

Family still a huge part of Riverside Speedway GROVETON--One thing that has not changed at Riverside, is that racing can turn into a family matter. Whether its everyone racing, or one racer, and dad as a crew chief, brothers and cousins as crew members, mom as scorer and cooker, whatever, Riverside can bring everyone together. The 2012 season proves to be more of the same. The Wyman Motorsports crew is no exception to this rule. Jason will be in the Dwarf car ranks, which isn’t a surprise to everyone that was at last years Frost Bite 250, when Wyman put a strong run to end the season. Wyman has also bought another Dwarf car, which will be piloted by Jeff Ainsworth. Jeremy Wyman, Jason’s brother, will be putting together a run at the championship in the Street Stocks. Not to be outdone, Jason’s wife Vickie will be competing in the Angels division. Talk about some late nights at the shop there... Another racing family will be competing this summer at Riverside. Vanessa Brown will be racing a full season in the Angels with a new Dodge Neon. Sister Allison Barney will be at the helm of a Pontiac Sunfire, but on a part-time basis. Barney’s husband Josh will be testing the GAUTHIER from page 21

The Gorham boys put the final nail into the coffin in the bottom of the third inning, shooting another five runs across home plate. The big hit was a bases loaded double that was crushed by Huskie designated hitter Brett Labnon. The Huskies were in cruise control and on top 15-0. Gauthier continued to make quick work of Littleton. The crafty lefty pounded the strike zone and faced just 16 Littleton batters in five innings of work. The contest ended after the top of the fifth inning because of the ten run rule. Gauthier struck out four and did not walk anyone. Littleton had two hits, one of those hits

waters in the Street Stock division. Racing must be in the water in that household. Amongst other racing families, people have been busy prepping for another go at it. Luke Shannon has revamped his Late Model, and despite the loss of some sponsors, has his eyes set on challenging for the title. The Gilcris family will also be back at the track, but in a cut back role. Sponsorship trouble has forced Nick to run part time in the 4 cylinder class, as opposed to the Late Model division. Brother Cole Kilby will join him with his famed Ford Probe, converted to a Street Stock with the combining of the Cyclones and Streets. Dennis O’Brien will again drive in the Dwarfs, with new teammate Robert Stanley, Jr. behind the powerplant in the team car. O’Brien has also been busy turning wrenches on Dan Brofman’s ride for the 2012 season. Time is running short for racers to prep their cars, and with this beautiful weather as of late, the racing season will be here before you know it. We hope your family will join our racing family at the track this season, feel free to stop us and say hi, and enjoy the rest of your spring. Burnt rubber and racing fuel is just around the corner. was an infield hit. Offensively, Gorham utilized only nine hits, two from Gauthier, Labnon, and Sanschagrin. Six Littleton errors, and five free passes, kept the base paths full of Huskies all afternoon. Gorham upped its record to 2-1, while the Crusaders left town at 2-2. On Friday, The Gorham boys will host the Pittsburg Panthers at 4 PM.
