D.E.S. solicits input on draft permit for mill BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM— The N.H. Department of Environmental Services held a hearing Thursday night on a draft air permit for boiler modifications at the former Fraser Papers mill. The hearing sought to solicit comments on the proposed air permit that would allow FP Acquisitions, LLC, the company which owns the mill, to modify two of its boilers by installing burners that would

allow the facility to burn natural gas and a combination natural gas and landfill gas mixture. Only two people attended the hearing and no one made any comments. After conducting a technical review of the mill and its plans the N.H.D.E.S. Air Resources Division issued a draft decision to issue the permit. The temporary air permit from N.H.D.E.S. would stay in effect through the construction and modification of the boilers. The mill would then require a

modification to its federal Title V permit once the new burners are installed. Catherine Beahm, a technical assistance specialist for the N.H.D.E.S. Air Resources Division, presented an overview of the project during the brief hearing. The mill plans to modify power boilers one and two to combust natural gas or a combination of natural gas and landfill gas from the Mt. Carberry landfill. see INPUT page 9

Missing snowboarder rescued in White Mountains TUCKERMAN’S RAVINE-- Rescue teams succeeded in finding a missing snowboarder, 32-yearold Jean-Francois Massicotte of St. Boniface, Quebec Province, after searching throughout the day. Massicotte was cold and tired after unexpectedly spending the night on the mountain after taking a wrong turn off the top

of Tuckerman’s Ravine, but he was uninjured and yesterday afternoon was hiking out to safety with a group of searchers from the Appalachian Mountain Club. A N.H. Army National Guard helicopter had been following tracks in the deep snow from the air for at least six miles, when the ground searchers met up with the man on the Dry River Trail.

Massicotte had last been seen Sunday, April 24, about 11:30 a.m. He had hiked in to Tuckerman’s Ravine with his brother-in-law Alexandre Gauthier to go snowboarding. They reached the base of Tuckerman’s Ravine mid-morning, then split up, with Gauthier remaining at the base and Massicotte see RESCUED page 18

College asks for help with budget BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

Berlin High School graphic arts teacher (l-r) Joe Fortin, Claude Raymond, of Paul’s Body Shop, and BHS students Kris Cicchetto, Hannah Gagnon, Heather Gagnon, Mariah Raymond, (lower) Kyanna Lefebvre, and Rachel Thompson stand in front of a Kia mini-van that the graphic arts students decaled with vinyl lettering. This year, Berlin Public Schools purchased a Kia mini-van to reduce travel costs for staff and administration. Claude Raymond from Paul’s Body Shop donated some painting on the van. Earlier this month, the BHS Graphic Arts Program applied vinyl to several of the districts work and plow vehicles as well as the minivan. “it is a win-win situation,” said Fortin. “The school system can save some money by doing this in-house, and the students learn how the process creating and applying vector art is done from beginning to end.” (CRAIG LYONS PHOTO)

BERLIN – Supporters of White Mountains Community College are urged to fight a proposed $900,000 cut in its 2012 fiscal operating budget. The proposed cut comes at a time when college enrollment and demand for services are up. At the college’s traditional dinner for local legislators and municipal officials last Thursday night, Community College System of N.H. Vice Chancellor Dr. Charles Annal acknowledged it is a “particularly difficult legislative session in terms of trying to fashion a budget that is going to work for everyone”. The college system is currently funded at $37.5 million. The system requested a 2012 budget of $39 million. In his budget, Gov. Lynch proposed a figure of $35 million - $27 million from the general fund. The House-passed budget set a figure of $27.7 million in fiscal 2012 and $32.1 million in fiscal 2013. The Senate has not come out yet with its budget. “Our hope at this point is to recover some of this through the Senate. We’re see COLLEGE page 19

One size fits nobody

(NY Times) — In one store, you’re a Size 4, in another a Size 8, and in another a Size 10 — all without gaining an ounce. It’s a familiar problem for many women, as standard sizing has never been very standard, ever since custom clothing gave way to readyto-wear. So, baffled women carry armfuls of the same garment in different sizes into the dressing room. They order several sizes of the same shirt online, just to get the right fit. Now, a handful of companies are tackling the problem of sizes that are unreliable. Some are pushing more informative labels. Some are designing multiple versions of a garment to fit different body shapes. And one is offering full-body scans at shopping malls, telling a shopper what sizes she should try among the various brands. “Many women tie their self-esteem to the size on the tag,” said Tanya Shaw, an entrepreneur working on a fit system. As the American population has grown more diverse, sizes have become even less reliable. Over the years, many brands have changed measurements so that a woman who previously wore a 12 can now wear a 10 or an 8, a practice known as “vanity sizing.” In men’s clothes, the dimensions are usually stated in inches; women’s clothing involves more guesswork.


Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

Syria escalates crackdown as tanks go to Restive City

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

BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — The Syrian Army stormed the restive city of Dara’a with tanks and soldiers and helped detain dozens in towns across the country Monday in an escalation of the widening crackdown on Syria’s five-week-old uprising, according to residents and human rights activists. They said at

least 25 people were killed in Dara’a, with reports of bodies strewn in the streets. The military’s move into the town seemed to signal a new, harrowing chapter in a crackdown that has already killed nearly 400 people. So far hewing to a mix of concessions and brute force, the government’s actions Monday indicated that it had chosen the

latter, seeking to crush a wave of dissent in virtually every province that has shaken the onceuncontested rule of President Bashar al-Assad. “The government has decided to choose the path of violence and repression,” said a Syrian analyst in Beirut, who asked to remain anonymous for his safety.

High school classes advanced in name only? (NY Times) — More students are taking ambitious courses. According to a recent Department of Education study, the percentage of high school graduates who signed up for rigoroussounding classes nearly tripled over the past two decades. But other studies point to a disconnect: Even though students are getting more credits in more advanced courses, they are not scoring any higher on standardized tests. The reason, according to a growing body of research, is that the content of these courses is not as high-achieving as their names — the course-title equivalent of grade inflation. Alge-

bra II is sometimes just Algebra I. And College Preparatory Biology can be just Biology. Lynn T. Mellor, a researcher in Austin, Tex., who has studied the phenomenon in the state, compares it to a food marketer labeling an orange soda as healthier orange juice. “Like the misleading drink labels, course titles may bear little relationship to what students have actually learned,” said Dr. Mellor, who has analyzed course completion, test records and other student data in Texas “We see students taking more and more advanced courses, but still not performing well on end-ofcourse exams.”

Justices reject request for fast health law ruling

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The Supreme Court on Monday turned back an unusual request from Virginia to put the state’s challenge to the new federal health care law on a fast track. The court’s one-line order offered no reasoning, and there were no noted dissenting votes. Nor was there any indication that any justices had disqualified themselves from the case. The court’s practice is to note such recusals, and it now appears almost certain that all nine justices will hear cases challenging the law when they reach the court in the ordinary course, probably in the term that starts in October. Federal trial courts around the nation have issued varying decisions about the constitutionality of a key provision of the law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Some judges have upheld the provision, which mandates the purchase of health insurance in some circumstances, while others have ruled that the requirement exceeds the scope of Congressional power authorized by the Constitution.

Two weekend fires put strain on Red Cross

CONCORD — A major fire Saturday in Manchester and another in Concord on Easter morning have left 45 people displaced, according to the Red Cross. The first fire was at an apartment building on Pearl Street in Manchester. Lisa Michaud, of the New Hampshire Red Cross, said 38 people lost their homes — 14 of them were children. Michaud said seven people were left homeless after fire ripped through an apartment building on Perley Street in Concord on Sunday. Michaud said her organization is now scrambling to get shelter, food,

clothing and general comfort for those affected by these two fires. She said it costs the Red Cross about $1,500 to take care of a family of three or four who has been uprooted by fire. Michaud said that can put a strain on the Red Cross. She said donations are down because of the economy, and many people who have given have earmarked their money for disasters like the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. If you would like to help, you can log on to or call (800) RED-CROSS. The local number is 624-4307. —Courtesy of WMUR

Journalist held in Libya contacts parents in N.H. BY CLYNTON NAMUO THE UNION LEADER

ROCHESTER — Captive journalist James Foley called his family from a detention center in Libya on Saturday, the first time he has contacted them since being taken prisoner nearly three weeks ago. “It was a wonderful call,” Foley’s mother Diane said of the call she received Saturday just before 4 p.m. “He said people were feeding him. He was having water to drink and the people were as kind as they could be in a prison.” The call is a small, but significant step toward bring Foley home, although it remains unclear precisely when that may happen. Diane Foley said her son does not know when he could be released and her family has no idea either. Foley’s family has waged a fierce campaign to bring him home, attract-

ing the support of high ranking federal officials, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen from New Hampshire. Still, the decision to release Foley is up to Libya, which has been rocked by war and ferocious fighting between government and rebel forces. Foley, 36, was taken prisoner on April 5 by forces loyal to Col. Moammar Gahdhafi as he reported for Boston-based news agency GlobalPost on the outskirts of Brega, an oil town involved in the conflict there. His captivity has been marked by an almost total information blackout. Libyan officials only recently even tacitly acknowledged they had Foley in custody along with other journalists, including American Clare Gillis, who has contributed to The Atlantic and USA Today.

Glimpse’s Of Gorham’s Past A History of Some of Gorham’s Old Businesses

Can you remember going to Armand’s Drivein for a hamburger, fries and a shake? How about mailing a letter at the Cascade Post Office? Did you go to school at the Ann Lary Elementary School, a two story brick building built on Mechanic St in 1911? How many of you remember the Post Office on Exchange St., before moving to Main St? What gas stations and convenience stores used to exist on Main St. and elsewhere in town? How about the grocery store on the corner of Exchange St. and Main St. that burned around 1980? Did you eat at the Golden Lunch or play pool or bowl at Archies? Do you have memories of movies at the Ritz Theater on Androscoggin

St, or go to the drive-in theaters on Gorham Hill or along the Berlin-Gorham Road? For readers who grew up in Gorham or frequented local businesses over the years, you know that many establishments have come and gone. Some buildings have stayed essentially the same for decades but others have been renovated or are gone. The Berlin Coos County Historical Society (BCCHS) fortunately had a photo of the Cascade Post Office, which apparently also housed a market. Downstairs was a barbershop and a trolley stop. It was torn down in the late 1950s due to highway improvements. The Gorham Historical Society (GHS) and the 4th of July Committee continue to work on a slide show about the town’s history for the 175th Anniversary. We have hundreds of photos but we still have some gaps when it comes to past businesses. Armand’s Drive-In, once a popular spot for locals and tourists was located where the former Rite Aid Building is. But we have yet to find a postcard or photo of it. There are

many garages, gas stations and small stores of which we are missing photos. We did locate the nice picture below of Piattoni’s gas station and store. One of our other interests is to complete a list of Gorham businesses that once lined Main St., the Glen Road, the Berlin-Gorham Road, Exchange St. and Rt. 2 west of the upper village. If you know what business were located where from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s or whenever your oldest memories begin, we’d love to have you make a list for us. Then we’ll attach or try to find photos of these businesses. A great picture of the A&P store was also found. Ralph Maxwell remembered working there as a young man. Exchange Street, once the commercial hub of Gorham, has changed remarkably little over the decades. The majority of the old buildings seen in postcards and photos are still standing just the businesses have changed. If you have memories to share or photos

To the editor: As legislators, we have received a number of emails, postcards, letters, as well as phone calls regarding several issues pertaining to the state budget. Thank you all for letting us know that you want increased school funding, secure pensions for retirees, and the right to bargain collectively. First and foremost, we support all of these goals which is why we voted against both HB1 and HB2. We are proud to stand with other Democrats and the few remaining Main Street Republicans to say no to a budget we believe is bad for students, bad for teachers,

bad for the middle class, bad for business, bad for the environment, bad for cities and town, and immoral in its neglect of our most vulnerable citizens, the elderly. Although we are told daily that the budget does not downshift costs to cities and towns that cannot possibly be true. Decreased education funding from the state means that town school districts must shoulder those costs, and the resulting increase in property taxes. This, we are told by the Republican Leadership, is not downshifting, because the school districts see TROUBLED page 8

just have to be said. Some people are talkers, some are doers, some would rather sit on the sofa and play with the remote control and do absolutely nothing (really ambitious) and they would be the first to complain. I’m sure we all saw and read the article in the free paper that showed the wages of city employees. It’s very difficult to keep quiet especially int his economy when people are out of work, struggling everyday or not knowing where their next meal will come from. We have people living in poverty and not having heat to stay warm not having proper clothing when the weather is extremely cold. You don’t have to lood very far, because it’s right here in Berlin. I feel guilty knowing that I have a hot meal on the table and a roof over my head with heat and have proper clothing for the cold. My heart goes out to those people, because those people are human beings. Life just isn’t fair. Is it fair that people are loosing their homes because they can’t afford to pay the mortgage and the high taxes. Does anyone care? Some people pay anywhere from 4 to 6 thousand dollars a year for property taxes and some just turn their homes over to the bank because the taxes are too dam high. Is there something wrong with this peicutre? The economy is making it very difficult for some of us to make ends meet in small communities like Berlin wher the jobs are nil or jobs are on the

outside of Berlin with long distance traveling. Berlin is not a city anymore, the city council and the mayor need to open thier eyes and realize that people of Berlin cannot give anymore, enough is enough. Please stop bleeding us dry, people are leaving every day. Berlin is a very depressing area, it was a booming place at one time, now it’s pitifull. Some of us look through rose colored glasses which is not reality it only makes life easier. You know, people who do have a job or ojobs are very lucky and I’m sure they feel lucky to have one. But the people who work for the city, Berlin PD, fire dept. schools, and other offices of Berlin are really the lucky ones. These people can make a big difference. Try to make a small cut in your budget and will be not as bad and take a cut in pay so that the extra money could be used for the many financial deficits of this town. Mayor Grenier please take proper action to rectify this sad situation and put this town back on the road to financial recovery. It’s heart breaking to know that our young people leave after graduating because there is nothing here to keep their interest and our future is leaving with them. We all need to come togehter and work things out for all of us. We do have good people in this town. Let us count our blessings. God Bless. Priscilla Doucette Berlin

get to decide whether to slash programs or raise more funds locally. With respect to the retirement system. Four years ago Democrats took steps to ensure that municipalities, over time, repaid the under funding of their obligation to the pension fund. In this budget, that obligation has been reversed, and employees are again asked to make greater contributions than employers. We all recognize that further action must be taken to ensure the health of the pension system, but that action must be the result of discussions, where all parties affected, have a seat at the table. We particularly deplore the process by which the right to collective bargaining was stripped in a last minute amendment, without even the possibility of public comment. The budget, and other legislation that have passed in recent weeks leave us deeply troubled for the future. CACR 12, the constitutional amendment on education funding, would eliminate any

tation for nitrous oxide emissions when burning any combination of gas and oil; testing the stack for nitrous oxide emissions; updating the Regulated Toxic Air Pollutant compliance’s; and record keeping and reporting of requirement for permit conditions and compliance. Two further requirements for the permit, said Beahm, include a biennial tune-up and one time energy assessment for the boilers. obligation of the state to pay for education funding, and would remove any possibility of court intervention. The extreme cuts to the university and community college systems will result in higher tuition, and ultimately a workforce less well prepared to attract businesses to the state. The return of the 16-year-old dropout rate, and the reduction in funding for programs for nontraditional learners puts ore students at risk. We urge you to contact not only our Senator Gallus, but other senators as well to let them know of your concerns. Their names and district may be found at It is our hope that you talk to your neighbors and friends and get them to take action. Most of all, we hope you will make a commitment to help change this disastrous course by ensuring that those who have foisted it on you, will be defeated at the polls in 2012. Rep. Robert L.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be presenting yourself to people who are distracted, to say the least. Assume that you must capture their attention before you impart anything important. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Simplicity is an ideal that is usually much more difficult to attain than it looks. Your ability to sense what matters and stay on track will be in high demand. You’ll make other people’s lives easier. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Anyone can describe a problem. You take it two steps further, proposing a solution and gaining the cooperation of anyone connected to that solution. It’s why you’ll be paid and paid well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your methods, though not exactly madcap, are somewhat contrary to the conventional approach. This is what earns you fans and friends today, so go with those offbeat instincts. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though you’re all for working smart instead of hard, sometimes there’s just no getting around it. Roll up your sleeves and prepare to get dirty. Today, the smart work and hard work will be one and the same. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 26). Exercise improves your life -- start a new regime. In the next five weeks, a special relationship thrives. June and July will focus on balancing work and pleasure. You’ll find more effective ways of supporting your hobbies and leisure time. Finances improve with higher education. Virgo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 35, 21, 25, 39 and 15.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be in a mischievous mood, and you’ll have an audience egging you on. This question may cross your mind: Is the world ready for your kind of fun? TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The messenger is always in a precarious position. When the news is bad, he gets blamed. And when it’s good, he gets hounded for more. Do yourself a favor and avoid being the messenger today. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Tell people how to handle you. You’re a star because of the thing you’re very good at. Let the others know that you want to focus there, because you won’t be in the mood to take on anything else. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be an asset to your group in hectic times. When you need to, you can tap into that relaxed, laissez-faire part of your personality. The more excited things get the calmer you become. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may become genuinely mad about something, but be careful not to lose your composure publicly. Blow off steam in private. Your anger will die down almost as fast as it comes up, and all will be quickly forgotten. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you keep up the optimism over the next three days, things will start to go very well for you. You’ll pull off a few miracles in a row. Not only will you succeed magnificently, but you’ll help those around you to succeed, too. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You know how to tell the truth in a way that is fair and constructive for all involved. Your honesty earns you a place of respect in the hearts, minds and actions of your peers.

Page 14 — THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Tuesday, April 26, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m writing in response to “Feeling Guilty in North Carolina” (March 18), who feels guilty using address labels, calendars and notepads from organizations soliciting donations. Last year, for about six months, I collected all the requests for donations I received. Abby, the total was 532 requests from 119 organizations! Yes, I’m overwhelmed, and I no longer feel guilty about tossing them. I sent all of them letters requesting they delete my name from their lists. One hundred eighteen ignored my request. One asked how often I want information from them. I give the notepads and other enclosures to Goodwill and shred the labels. Ironically, I receive more labels now than ever before, even though I pay most bills online and email rather than write. I donate less than I ever have in the past because I feel so hounded, so in my case, it has worked against them. -- KAREN H. IN FORT COLLINS, COLO. DEAR KAREN: Thanks for the input. Letters from readers complaining about charitable donation requests with labels arrive in my office on a daily basis, so you can imagine the mail I have received in response to the one I printed from “Feeling Guilty.” Read on: DEAR ABBY: I, too, receive many “gifts” from organizations soliciting for donations. My view is, if they’re using my donation to send gifts, then they really don’t need my money. They should be using donations to help whomever or whatever it is they’re soliciting for. I don’t feel guilty in the least for using the labels, gifts, etc. I give to organizations that do not send out freebies; that’s how I direct my charitable donations. -- SABRINA W., SOUTHGATE, MICH.

DEAR ABBY: I’m a professional fundraiser and I, too, receive the pads and address labels. I do not give to every organization that sends them, but I do use what they send. No one should feel guilty for doing so. Nonprofits buy and rent lists from companies, and they don’t expect everyone to respond. Nonprofits aren’t trying to make anyone feel guilty or trick them; they just want to do the work of the causes you love to support. -- SUZANNE L., STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. DEAR ABBY: Many solicitation letters have a small box at the bottom asking you to indicate if you would like to be taken off their mailing list. It’s worth the 44 cents to return it. Some areas recycle junk mail. After removing the address labels, the rest can be put in the recycling bin with newspapers. Note pads, greeting cards and calendar gifts could be donated to a military personnel drive, thrift store, nursing home or community center. -- MARY F., STUART, FLA. DEAR ABBY: We contacted the post office and were instructed not to open the envelope, to write “Refused -- Return to Sender” on the front and put it back in the mailbox. The post office can then decide what to do with it. -- SANDRA M., MUKWONAGO, WIS. DEAR ABBY: There’s nothing “free” when organizations try to guilt us into sending money. My solution for all this junk is, use the labels and anything personalized if I like them; if not, destroy them. Anything else I give to a nursing home, local children’s museum to use for crafts or to the Goodwill. When coins are attached, I put them in a jar and give them to my church. -- CLAIRE P., PORTLAND, MAINE

Brownfields meeting tonight at city hall

BERLIN - The city has been one of the most aggressive in the state in going after Brownfield money to clean up old industrial and contaminated sites. An update on the various projects underway, including the former Fraser mill property and the former Notre Dame High School, will be held Tuesday evening starting at 6:30 p.m. at the city hall auditorium. The public informational meeting is sponsored by the N.H. Department of Environmental Services, the City, and Nobis Engineering. DES has received a remedial action plan for the mill site from Nobis. Nobis will present that plan for public comment at the meeting. Comments will be accepted until May 31. There will also be a presentation on the status of clean up efforts for the Notre Dame property. TriCounty Community Action Program will discuss their plans for the building. The City and NHDES will outline other successes achieved with the $1 million obtained under the Brownfields Coalition Assessment Grant with NHDES and North Country Council.

Writer’s Night Out group to hold meeting GORHAM -- The monthly meeting of the Coos County Writer’s Night Out program will take place Monday, May 2, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the White Mountain Café, on Main Street, in Gorham. The meeting is part of the outreach effort by the New Hampshire Writer’s Project. Writers of all levels of ability, from beginner to published professional, are cordially invited and encouraged to attend. The meeting is not limited to only residents of Coos County. All writers in the North Country are welcome. The meetings are informal and designed to facilitate ease of conversation about the art of writing and the path to publication. Many of our members are published writers, and are more than willing to share their experiences with others. For May’s meeting, we will be discussing the upcoming Writer’s Workshop and Book Fair to be held at the Northern Forest Heritage Park, in Berlin, on Saturday, July 16. The July event is an opportunity that no writer should miss. Also, for May’s meeting at the White Mountain Café, the group is suggesting that writers bring something that they have written or on which they working to share with all. What you bring should be relatively brief, so that as many as possible can be heard. Sharing something that you have written is not mandatory, and those who do read may or may not invite constructive comment, as they choose. The idea is to come and share in the conversations and enjoy a night out with those who share your passion for writing. So, writers, mark your calendars for Monday, May 2, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the White Mountain Café, on Main Street, in Gorham. For further information, please call Dick Conway at 603449-2558, or e-mail at ithacabound35@gmail. com.

Motorcycle Snowmobile Service

“Power Sports since 1977” Some one asked the other day,Hey Ray why the “since 1977”? Well here’s his answer. It all started out of High school, my first bike shop job was with a gentleman by the name of Eddie Renaud. Renaud Honda. Eddie was a shrewd business man. Next came employment with Top Sports Plaza, yes the good folks of Top Furniture were involved in motorcycles and snowmobiles. I was very lucky to work with some sharp people at that establishment. Next was a period in time, that a gentleman named Roland Leveille of Rocket Snowmobile hired me. Roland was a guy who had the insight of an engineer, the repair vision of MacGiver,and the humor of a guy who was just, a great all around person. I learned a lot from Roland,

even a few choice French words. Then it was down to Gorham to Steve’s Sport Center. Steve Fisk and I started a long friendship, once again a gentleman who I was lucky to share some business insight with. Well in the summer of ‘92 I approached Ray Mulligan, and the rest is history; 299 Main St. Gorham,has been my address till now. Yes I had a couple of vacations in between. You ask what does all this have to do with my shop? Well through the years I have been very lucky to have learned from very diverse bunch of characters. The day you stop learning, is the day you’re done. I’m still blessed with awesome family, great friends,and best of all great customers! So if you have a problem with your bike or sled, I might remember that trick Roland showed me.

PUBLIC NOTICE Brownfields Activities in Berlin, N.H. New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), Nobis Engineering and the City of Berlin will be hosting a public informational meeting regarding various Brownfields activities occurring within the city. The meeting will take place on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at the Berlin City Hall, 168 Main Street at 6:30 PM. NHDES has received a Remedial Action Plan (RAP) for the former Fraser Paper land located at 650 Main Street (map & lot 129-49.3) along the Androscoggin River. This RAP was prepared with the use of NHDES Brownfields Coalition Assessment Grant Funds. The RAP will be presented by Nobis Engineering and comments will be taken for further review until May 31, 2011. A presentation will be given as to the current status of the cleanup efforts currently underway for 411 School Street (the former Notre Dame High School) made possible from funds obtained under the Brownfields Revolving Loan Fund Subgrant under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. A presentation will be made by Tri-County CAP as to their current status in the redevelopment of 411 School Street (the former Notre Dame High School) and their plans for the building. The City and NHDES will present other successes achieved with the $1,000,000 in funds obtained under the Brownfields Coalition Assessment Grant with NHDES and North Country Council. The public is welcomed to attend, ask questions and make comments on Berlin’s Brownfields activities.

heading up to the top of Tuckerman’s Ravine to snowboard down. The pair planned to meet up again at the base between 4 and 5 p.m., but Massicotte never showed up. The N.H. Fish and Game Department was notified of the missing snowboarder at about 1 a.m. and alerted the U.S. Forest Service. Search plans were developed overnight and by daybreak Forest Service Snow Rangers and Mountain Rescue Service members were on the mountain looking for Massicotte. Appalachian Mountain Club field teams and N.H. Fish and Game Advanced Search and Rescue Team members soon joined the effort, and the N.H. Army National Guard helicopter was called in to assist. Throughout the day, searchers eliminated a number of likely areas, scouring Tuckerman’s and Huntington ravines and an area known as Raymond’s Cataract. Then, after tracks were

found in the deep snow in the Dry River drainage, the search focused there. On Sunday, Massicotte became lost, possibly because of reduced visibility due to fog above the treeline. At the summit of Tuckerman’s Ravine, he went south instead of east, ending up in the Oakes Gulf area, the headwall of the Dry River Wilderness. Winter conditions, including cold temperatures and deep snow still prevail in the Presidential Range of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Searchers were concerned about finding the missing man before significant rains expected to arrive tonight, with potential for flash flooding that could hamper search efforts, according to Lt. Douglas Gralenski of N.H. Fish and Game Law Enforcement.

not sure how this is going to play out,” Annal said. “There may be some opportunity to recoup some general fund there but at this point it’s anybody guess.” He said he believes the likelihood of being funded at the $35 million level recommended by Lynch is not strong. But he said funding at the House level would carry serious consequences for the individual colleges and the system. The budget presented by the college system already included a four percent increase in tuition. Knowing the country is still in a recession, one questioner asked Annal if the system anticipated a cut in its budget. “We were not prepared for anything of this magnitude,” he said. WMCC President Kathy Eneguess said the House budget would mean a $900,000 cut for her college at a time when the enrollment is growing. “We look at everything and we are very, very lean,” she said. “This budget will challenge us,” Eneguess said. In a written handout, she said the House budget would result in severe changes in the infrastructure of the WMCC. It would result in cuts to workforce readiness programs, elimination of programs and

services, tuition increases and decreased access. Eneguess said she is asking the public to contact state senators, including but not limited to North Country Senator John Gallus of Berlin. Gallus sits on the Finance Committee. Eneguess said this is the first time in her nine years at WMCC that she has issued such an appeal to the public. “There is time to get some funding from the Senate and we need your help,” she said. The system’s capital budget fared better with the House budget approving $18.8 million for capital projects. For the Berlin campus, $1.2 million is targeted to purchase the former Hexaport building at the city’s industrial park for the college’s diesel mobile lab, automotive, and welding programs. Eneguess said the college has a purchase and sales agreement for the building. Total enrollment at the college this fall including full and part time students is 1,315. Of that figure, 878 students are considered full-time, carrying 12 credits or more. Almost 60 percent of students at WMCC are women. Total enrollment has more than doubled since 2000 when were 581 students. Eneguess and Anaal were followed by a presentation by Professor Greg Meserve on teaching physics and electricity at the college. The college’s culinary students served dinner.
