Shaheen urges funding for prison Selectmen seeking BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen is calling on the federal Department of Justice to find funding in its current budget to open the newly completed federal prison in Berlin. In a letter to Deputy Attorney General James Cole, Shaheen urged the department to include funding to activate the 1,280-bed facility in its spending plan for the remainder of fiscal 2011. The department said the compromise budget passed by Congress earlier this month did not include funds to open the prison. Shaheen said the department should prioritize funding to include money for the Berlin facility.

“We have a warden just waiting to hire staff. We have a prison system that is overcrowded. We have a community that desperately needs new jobs and an economic boost,î Shaheen said. ìYet, because of Washington’s broken budget process, the Bureau of Prisons is spending $4 million a year to keep a stateof-the-art prison empty.” Shaheen pointed out the federal prison system is 35 percent overcrowded and the Berlin facility would help address safety concerns by easing the overcrowding. In a phone interview, Shaheen said the continuing resolution passed by Congress last month contained see SHAHEEN page 8

to restart winter festival in Gorham BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM— The Gorham selectmen are seeking support for an idea to start a winter festival in town. To help further the idea of starting a winter festival in town, Selectman David Graham is starting to reach out to local businesses to see if they’d get behind the proposal. The idea behind the plan is to create another event in town for residents and attract people into the community. “The more people we can attract to the area the better it is for us,” said Graham. The idea for starting the winter festival, Graham said, came from all the things he heard about similar events in Lancaster and Jefferson. “People are always talking about these winter festivals,” said Graham. “Why don’t we have one of those, I thought.” Gorham has the facilities, including the common and the town hall, not to mention the restaurants, motels and shops to sustain a winter festival, said Graham. see FESTIVAL page 17

BERLIN – A design charrette for Phase II of the Route 110 upgrade is being held Friday and Saturday and public participation and input is encouraged. The state Department of Transportation has hired Jeffrey Taylor and Associates to conduct the charrette, which will focus on ways to lessen the impact of the new truck route. After years of discussion and debate, the city has prevailed in getting its preferred route selected for Phase II from Wight Street to Green Street. The new route will skirt the neighborhood and consolidate the traffic in a more direct route, following the railroad corridor. It will require the taking of 29 properties and the potential relocation of 48 housing units. City Planner Pamela Laflamme said the new route will remove some of the curb cuts onto Route 110 and allow the neighborhood to feel more like a neighborhood than a truck route. “It will make that area feel very different than it does now,” she said. see CHARRETTE page 17

YouTube near to film rental deal LOS ANGELES — A twoyear effort by YouTube, owned by Google, to get major Hollywood studios to offer their new-release movies for rental is coming closer to reality. Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal Pictures and Warner Brothers have agreed to rent movies via YouTube, according to two studio executives who spoke on condition of anonymity because they said YouTube wanted to make the announcement. Rental fees are expected to be comparable to those charged by rivals like iTunes. YouTube, however, has only half of the industry’s top players on board. Still on the sidelines are Walt Disney Studios, which is closely aligned with Apple, and 20th Century Fox and Paramount Pictures. Paramount’s corporate owner, Viacom, is still battling YouTube in court over copyright infringement. These three studios together control about 60 percent of the North American movie market. YouTube declined to comment on reports of new rental deals. “We’ve steadily been adding more and more titles since launching movies for rent on YouTube over a year ago and now have thousands of titles available,” said YouTube in a statement. Despite YouTube’s popularity — people view videos on the site two billion times a day — its film rentals do not appear to have gained much traction.

JERUSALEM (NY Times) — Fatah and Hamas, the rival Palestinian movements, announced an agreement in principle on Wednesday to end the years-long internal Palestinian schism. Taher Al-Nounou, a spokesman for the Hamas government in Gaza, said the two sides had reached a preliminary agreement to form a transitional unity government for the Palestinian territories to be followed by new elections after a year. He said the leaders of Fatah and Hamas are expected to meet

within a week to sign a formal agreement. At a press conference to announce the deal in Cairo, the Palestinian negotiators offered few details of the proposed transitional government, saying it would be composed of neutral professionals and that the leaders of each side would work out the details. While the deal, reached after secret Egyptian-brokered talks, promised a potentially historic reconciliation for the Palestinians, Israel warned that a formal agreement would spell the end of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The decision by President Obama to release his “long-form” birth certificate on Wednesday injected the president directly into the simmering “birther” controversy in the hope of finally ending it, as aides said, or perhaps even turning it to his advantage. The gamble produced dramatic television, as Mr. Obama strode in to the White House briefing room to address, head on, a subject that had been deemed irrelevant by everyone in his orbit for years but had nonetheless figured in conservative efforts to undermine his legitimacy. Mr. Obama’s comments risked elevating the discredited questions about his birth. But they also allowed him to cast his political opponents as focused on the trivial at a time when the nation is facing more important issues.

In a televised address on Wednesday, even before the Fatah-Hamas press conference, the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, sent a stern warning to the Palestinian Authority president and Fatah chief, Mahmoud Abbas. “The Palestinian Authority has to choose between peace with Israel and peace with Hamas,” Mr. Netanyahu said, adding, “Peace with both of them is impossible, because Hamas aspires to destroy the state of Israel and says so openly.”

VILONIA, Ark. (NY Times) — Twelve people have died during the past two days as a barrage of severe weather swept across parts of the South and wrecked this small town, leaving four dead. By Wednesday morning, the storms had left more than 50,000 people without power from East Texas to Memphis and destroyed scores of homes. In Faulkner County, Ark., alone, 60 homes had been destroyed and 51 had sustained major damage, said Shelia Maxwell, director of the

county’s Office of Emergency Management. Six of the 10 deaths in Arkansas were due to flash flooding in the northwest part of the state. Four others were killed by a tornado that touched down and marched through Vilonia, a small town a few dozen miles north of Little Rock. On Tuesday night, storms killed at least two others — including a truck driver in Mississippi who died after he hit a tree that had blown down across a highway near Oxford, the authorities said.

Body of missing mother found at Cranmore THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, April 28, 2011— Page 3


CONWAY — Police found the body of the missing 20-yearold Portland woman they’d been searching for since Saturday in a pond at the base of Cranmore early Wednesday. “It is with great sorrow that I tell you we located the body of Krista Dittmeyer,” assistant attorney general Jane Young said at a lateafternoon press conference. “She was located in what is known in this area as Duck Pond.” Young spoke before a pack of television reporters from stations around the Northeast. She said she would be unwilling to answer any questions, but she did take a few without releasing many details. “We are treating this as a suspicious death,” she said. “Ms. Dittmeyer’s body is being transported to Concord to be examined tomorrow by the deputy medical examiner.” After an autopsy, she said, officials may be able to release details about “the manner and the cause of her death.” The attorney general’s office took over communication from the Conway police earlier in the day, shortly after the report went out that a body was in the pond. “Effective immediately all further press inquiries and information releases will be under the authority of the New Hampshire Attorney General’s office,” Lt. Chris Perley said in an email to reporters around noon. For most of the day, official spokespeople were unwilling to confirm the body had been found, but news of the discovery went out over the radio early Wednesday morning and police at the scene confirmed the report early on. The pond where Dittmeyer was found is just north of Cranmore’s base lodge, several hundred yards away from the spot where Ditt-

Wednesday was the first time in days the Conway Police Department was unwilling to comment on the Dittmeyer case. Police had been holding daily press conferences to keep momentum going for the search and tips. Dittmeyer is originally from Bridgton, Maine. She had been living in Portland and was a waitress at Buffalo Wild Wings, a restaurant in South Portland.

A response to Priscilla Doucette’s letter To the editor: This letter is in response to Priscilla Doucette’s letter that appeared in the Berlin Daily Sun on April 26. Mrs. Doucette before you start requesting that employees of the city take a pay cut let me fill you in on what you don’t know. When the top 100 salaries were published in the “Berlin Daily Sun”, we in the “other offices” were nowhere to be found as we occupy the bottom 11 positions on the list of earning from $26,317.20 down to the lowest at $19,965.40. Here are a few examples to let you know about the disparity between the city offices and the counterparts at the schools. Accounts Payable employee for the city makes $12.50 per hour after 25 years of service. The school counterpart is making $19.32 per hour after less than five years of service. This makes a yearly difference between the two Accounts Payable employees $15,646.80 per year. The city Payroll Department is paid a wage of $11.74 per hour whereas the school counterpart earns $20.68 per hour. The annual difference between these two employees is $18,964.40. Although the city clerk is relatively new to the position even after years of service she would never come close to the school employee’s wage. The collections clerks, for whom there is no counterpart to compare earns $12.10

and $14.46, the latter, serving the city of Berlin for 29 years. All money that comes into the city is processed by these two employees. The finance/tax collector’s office for the city has worked short for the last five months. When the opening became available the city council approved replacing the position only to change their minds when the school department made an appearance questioning the position. This position in addition to assisting the comptroller replaces all positions when vacation time comes around, and there are 21 weeks of combined vacation in that office that this position needs to cover. When you speak of cutting the budget each department of the city was requested to cut their budgets by 4 percent. All departments with the exception of the school and police departments complied with the requests, which included making deep cuts to absorb the increases in insurance and retirement. The school and police departments were unwilling to absorb these increases in benefits and requested an increase in their budgets. Therefore, the money saved by city department will not be going to help out reduce the tax rate but to pay for the school and police department increases. Did you know that there are several employees of the city that qualify for low income assistance? Well see RESPONSE page 5

Once upon a Berlin Time

1963 VI

Hello fellow Berlinites. Our White Mountain Community College as we know it today was in its infant stages back in the year 1963. As a matter of fact, arguing was still taking place about where it was going to be built. Referring to this school as the “North Country Vocational School”, available sites were now being considered for this new educational facility. One of the sites was located on the top of Cascade Hill, with one border running along the Berlin–Gorham line on Cascade Street and the other parallel to Gordon Avenue. Another place for this school was on top of Gorham Hill and yet another on the East Milan Road. The reason for Cascade Hill was that Councilman Ronaldo Morin, chairman of the higher education committee, said that this land was owned by the Brown Company and was available. It had 25 acres, as required by the state board of education. A vote had been taken to build this school on Cascade Hill, if suitable land was found. Every week, the headlines had changes about where to build, as the site controversy continued. In mid October, the site committee, headed by board chairman Jon Driscoll was coming to Berlin for a meeting at the office of the superintendent of schools, Lawrence Dwyer. I will update my readers on their decisions in my next and last story of 1963. A great story about the bob house of Henry Demers made news during the end of September 1963. It seems that Henry had a bob house that would go almost anywhere on land, water or ice and he figured that it was the first of its kind. This building was 12 feet long, six feet wide and six feet high. It was outfitted to sleep four people and had a stove with many other comforts of home. Its best asset though was being water tight. After launching this rig into a pond, he found that not one drop of water seeped in. The house that Demers built had a wooden framework, but the entire outside was made of aluminum. This setup made it light and rugged weighing 975 pounds. It was towed around on a boat trailer, which made it great for sleeping quarters during the deer hunting season. Also, it could go on the surface of the water, being towed into great fishing spots by a boat using a small motor. Mr. Demers said that he had other plans for his invention. He was going to put runners on it, so that it could be towed by a snowmobile. It took Henry about two years to build this outdoor toy at his Cascade Flats home. The total cost for his project was around $450. Does this invention still exist today? As for using his new invention in the woods in the fall of 1963, Mr. Demers was in trouble. By mid-October of this year New Hampshire’s woodlands were closed because of high fire danger. There was no rain in sight, except for possible showers and that would not be enough to change things. So, the woods were closed by proclamation of Governor John King at 12:01 pm on Wednesday, October 9, 1963. This action was taken on joint recommendations of fire marshals and the New Hamp-

shire Fish and Game Department officials. The danger of forest fires throughout New Hampshire back in this year was much worse than it had been in the dry year of 1947, when large areas were burned in parts of Maine and the Granite State. All of the woods were closed to fishermen, hunters and trappers and any smoking in woodlands was by those allowed to go into the woods, such as lumber operators was strictly prohibited. Dry conditions were prevalent for quite some time, until snow and rain finally lowered the danger. It was during the latter part of 1963 that ground for Berlin’s new telephone building was broken. Manager John Boyle, of the New England Telephone Company said the contract for the construction of this building, which still stands today on the east corner of High and Emery Streets, was awarded to Richards and Sons Incorporated of Berlin. The total cost of this building with its installed equipment was going to total around $750,000. The building itself would cost $130,000.This one story complex, would face Emery Street and be 53 feet by 79 feet. The building was expected to be finished by May of 1964 with the new dial system coming in 1965. Today, this same building is owned and operated by Fairpoint Communications. To end this week’s story, I would like to talk about the person chosen in October to be Mr. Sportsman of the year for 1963. His name was Al Adams and he was selected by the Athletic Booster Club of Berlin to receive this distinguished award. The choice of Mr. Adams was a very popular one, as his contributions to the local sports world had been great and varied over an extended period of years. They also continued for many more years after this. Up to this time, Al’s career in hockey, football, baseball, boxing and tennis was well known to one and all. He proved himself a terrific competitor in sports as an active participant, a coach, a manager and as a fan. Al Adams earned his right to the title of Mr. Sportsman here in Berlin, as a high school achiever during the mid 1940s and later as a tennis star, a softball star and member of the famed Berlin Maroons hockey team. He further added to his athletic laurels by way of a great career in hockey and football at the University of New Hampshire, where he graduated with a degree in engineering. Attach to this his career in the U.S. Marines, where he became one of the better pugilists in the Corps. In addition, throw in his managerial ability with his organization of many sports activities and you had a man whose lifetime was most intimately connected with see 1963 VI page 5

Please give back to the community by pitching in To the editor: When I walk up the road from my home, it’s always littered with cans, bottles, car parts, etc ...So, instead of continuing to look at it in disgust everyday, I decided to pick it up. Well it took me a few hours and 18-20 bags full of trash later, (with still some more to pick up mind you), I decided to call it a day. My bags were placed neatly on the side of the road for the city to easily pick up. This was Sunday, so I’m thinking the city will pick it up this Thursday. Well, Thursday came and went, bags still on the side of the road. I was kind of surprised considering the last time I did it they did pick it up. Well, the following Thursday came and went again with the city going right by all the bags of trash which would have only taken less than five minutes to pick up. I was floored. I was rather offended that I took time out of my Sunday to do my part in making the area by my home look presentable and someone that gets paid to pick it up cannot even do so and go by it for two weeks.

Do you part to prevent bear visits this spring Page 6 — THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, April 28, 2011

CONCORD, N.H. -- Do not be “fooled” by the Northeaster that has blanketed New Hampshire with several inches of snow -- bears are emerging from their winter dens and will become more active over the next few weeks. Bears den primarily to avoid being active during a period of time when food sources are limited. Weather conditions do play a role in denning phenology, but the influence of weather on denning behavior is less significant than food availability. As a result, do not expect that this spring snowstorm will reduce bear activity around the state. Bears are ready to come out of winter dens, and it is time for people to be vigilant and remove attractants that draw bears into residential areas. Homeowners need to take action now to reduce the chance of having a bear visit their home. One important guideline is to take down bird feeders and keep them down between April

and December, says New Hampshire Fish and Game Bear Project Leader Andrew Timmins; bears are attracted to birdseed, which is a nutrient-rich, easily accessible food source. “By late March, many New Hampshire residents had reported seeing bears, or bear tracks, around their bird feeders,” Timmins said. “Bears remember areas where they successfully secured food on previous occasions. It is how they adapt to periods of low food abundance. Given that sunflower seed is more nutritious than most foods a bear will find in the woods, it is easy to understand why some residences get visited by bears every spring.” Securing garbage is equally important as removing birdfeeders. If you secure your garbage and remove birdfeeders, you have addressed the two attractants that cause the vast majority of bear/human conflicts in New Hampshire.

way towards reducing the number of annual bear complaints. The N.H. Fish and Game Department thanks you for your efforts. Spring is a critical time for bears, as the greatest nutritional stress on a bear occurs during the first two months after they emerge from dens. During the denning period, bears typically lose 25% of their body weight, and a lactating female with newborn cubs may lose as much as 40%. The New Hampshire black bear population remains stable, with a statewide population that approximates 4,800 bears. Homeowners should take action to reduce the chances of a bear visiting their home. Avoid encounters with bears by taking a few simple precautions: * Stop all bird feeding by April 1. * Clean up any spilled birdseed and dispose of it in the trash. * Secure all garbage in airtight containers inside a garage or adequate storage area, and put garbage out on the morning of pickup, not the night before. * Avoid putting meat or other food scraps in your compost pile. * Don’t leave pet food dishes outside overnight. * Clean and store outdoor grills after each use.

* Finally, never intentionally feed bears! These steps will help to ensure that your backyard does not become attractive to bears and other wildlife, which is important because it prevents property damage by bears and because it keeps bears from becoming nuisance animals. “The surest way to prevent bear/ human conflicts is to keep your yard free of attractants. You may need to take additional steps to protect items that can’t be removed. For example, dumpsters should have a locking metal top that prevents access by bears, and beehives and livestock should be protected with an electric fence. To avoid bear-related conflicts, prevent bears from visiting and, most of all, from getting in the habit of finding food on your property,” said Timmins. For more information on preventing conflicts with black bears, visit http:// If you have questions about bearrelated problems, you can get advice by calling a toll-free number coordinated jointly by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department: 1-888-749-2327 (1-888-SHY-BEAR).

Prescribed fire burns for White Couture earns sales Mountain National Forest incentive trip to Puerto Rico

WMNF -- Spring burning in the White Mountain National Forest will begin this month as ground and weather conditions become right for safe and effective burning. Chase Marshall, White Mountain National Forest Fire Management Officer, is keeping a close eye on the weather and moisture levels in the various sites around the forest. “We have a site-specific burn plan for each area that describes the exact conditions we need before we’ll ignite a fire. We wait for the right wind, weather, and moisture levels that will allow us to burn safely. The burn plans also spell out all the details for the kinds of equipment and the number of trained firefighters needed at the site, and coordination with local fire departments.” The Forest Service plans to burn areas in the New Hampshire towns of Benton, Easton, Chatham, Ellsworth, Conway, Berlin, Randolph, Milan Gorham, and in the Maine towns of Gilead and Albany Township. The burn sites range from 1 to 54 acres in size. Up to 240 acres of the 796,000acre National Forest is planned for burning this spring. Prescribed fire is used to meet multiple resource objectives, including

the maintenance of wildlife openings in the forest. These openings provide grassy meadows or shrubby areas, adding to the diversity and complexity of habitat essential for some forest dwellers. “Periodic burning of these sites helps to maintain habitat for feeding, nesting, and cover for many wildlife species,” says Leighlan Prout, White Mountain National Forest Wildlife Program Leader. Burning also reduces the amount of accumulated forest fuels such as dead leaves, brush, and downed wood, lowering the risk for a wildfire. Prescribed fire can also prepare a seedbed on the forest floor for regeneration of certain tree species such as oak and pine. The burns are ignited and controlled by wildland firefighters with up-to-date training and gear. Firefighters stay prepared for assignments here and out west if needed for wildfire suppression. Marshall notes that most of the burn sites are well away from populated areas and will cause little if any inconvenience to National Forest visitors. For more information call Chase Marshall at White Mountain National Forest Headquarters, 603.536.6262 or your local Ranger District.

MILAN- lia sophia advisor and Milan resident Stacy Couture recently joined other high achievers on an incentive trip to Puerto Rico. Couture earned the reward for reaching remarkable sales and recruiting goals. “I love selling lia sophia jewelry and helping others discover this great opportunity to own their own businesses,” said Couture. “Earning this trip makes me feel proud. I’ll be working hard to qualify again next year.” lia sophia Advisors enjoyed their stay at the Wyndham Rio Mar Beach Resort and Spa from April 3, to 8. The resort is located near the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by the El Yunque Caribbean National Rain Forest. The lush vegetation of the rainforest is reflected in the classic tropic décor of the resort’s guest rooms. The incentive achievers enjoyed a welcome SHAHEEN from page one

a provision that the Department of Justice has to report its spending plan to Congress within 60 days. She said that requirement provided her with an opportunity to ask the department to look at the Berlin prison. Shaheen said the budget for the prison for a full year is $28.5 million. But with the fiscal year more than half over, she said she looking for enough money to get the prison up and running and the hiring process underway with the understanding the fiscal 2012 budget would provide additional funding to complete the activitation. Construction of the prison was completed last fall and activation was scheduled to begin this spring. Of the 300 employees that will work at

celebration dinner with their peers, and then took advantage of the fine cuisine, entertainment and deluxe accommodations at the resort. Each year, lia sophia gives its advisors the opportunity to earn a trip for one or two to a luxury destination by meeting or exceeding business goals, according to Bonni Davis, senior vice-president of U.S. sales and marketing for lia sophia. “This extraordinary group rose to the challenge that we set,” said Davis. “We are delighted that Couture qualified for this great reward this year, and look forward to welcoming even more advisors and managers at our next incentive destination.” For more information about lia sophia, please contact Stacy Couture at the prison, sixty percent will be new employees and the local region has been preparing people to compete for those jobs. A local Talent Team is also working to get local businesses ready to bid on goods and services for the facility. Shaheen also pointed out that Berlin has invested significant amounts of money upgrading its water and sewer systems to handle the added demand with the expectation those costs would be offset by user fees once the prison is operating. Last week, NBC nightly news broadcast a piece on the issue of the federal prison in Berlin that included an interview with Shaheen who called the decision not to fund the opening of the prison shortsighted.

By Holiday Mathis dence and interdependence well now. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Like any good superhero, your true identity must be, at times, hidden. Only the ones on the very inside are trusted with the information about your enormous strength and power. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There is a buffer zone around you now, and you are careful to only include those who have proven themselves worthy of getting close to you. This is how you avoid distractions and accomplish what you need to do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have a powerful personal radar system that extends from your heart to the hearts of those around you. You don’t have to know a person well to recognize their pain. You’re part of the healing, too. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will be assertive when you need to be, but mostly laid-back. You easily share yourself with others. This builds bonds that are enjoyable, effortless and a source of both pride and comfort. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have acted more sensibly than others in your family, and you will see the benefit of those choices now. You certainly don’t want to win at anyone else’s expense, but your victory will be noble. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 28). It’s a year of bright ideas and bold action. You’ll connect in different social circles in May. A special relationship is touched with poetry and magic. You have a healing talent. You will be sensitive to the pain of others and could make money alleviating it. July and October bring financial good fortune. You share a connection with Scorpio and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 15, 33, 18 and 42.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Intellectual pursuit makes you feel happy. You’ll get busy exploring your world and suddenly realize that you are interested in so many things, it would be impossible for you to ever be bored. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Ask anyone who has risen to superstar status -- failing makes you a success. You need the lessons so you can master the lessons. It is your mistakes you’ve learned from that give you the edge. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have some good stories. Plus, you have anecdotes that people can really learn from. If you explain yourself well enough, you’ll never have to say, “I guess you had to be there.” So make the effort to really spell it out. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You cannot unlive what you have lived, but you can find another way to respond to it. You’ll take a judicious trip down memory lane, and it will be a little like cropping a picture and keeping the best parts of the image in frame. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Children, and immature adults, throw tantrums. You are different. If you can’t do what you want, then keep your wits about you and look for new opportunities. You’ll succeed with your sly, foxy ways. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some of your thoughts are the same as yesterday and will repeat again tomorrow. There will be completely unique thoughts, too -- ones you will never think again. Capture them somehow so you will remember. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes you operate like a self-contained business of one, and other times, you behave like a cog in the wheel of a large organization. You balance your indepen-

Page 14 — THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, April 28, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: My wife and I shop in an upscale shoe store. On the past two visits there, a middle-aged salesman kissed my wife’s hand when we left. I was surprised but not offended, considering it to be nothing more than an old-fashioned expression of courtesy. The man is knowledgeable, helpful and honest. My wife, however, disagrees. She says his gesture is forward and inappropriate and that I should resent it. Who’s right? -- T.R. IN HOUSTON DEAR T.R.: You are. The kiss-on-the-hand routine may be part of the man’s sales technique. If he has done it before and your wife had no objection, then it’s not surprising he did it a second time. What would she like you to do -- challenge him to a duel? If she felt the gesture was inappropriate, then she shouldn’t have offered her hand to him a second time. DEAR ABBY: I hope you will share the following tips for dealing with orphaned or injured wildlife. Once people understand how to handle an encounter with an injured animal they will make safe decisions and possibly have a positive impact on nature: 1. The animal may NOT be orphaned! Deer leave their babies hidden in clumps of bushes or tall grass while they search for food. A baby bird that has fallen from the nest can be gently picked up and returned. 2. If you find an orphaned or injured animal, be very cautious. Frightened animals and animals in pain will bite. Opossums, raccoons and other mammals can carry rabies. 3. Do not bring the animal inside to nurse it back to health and keep as a pet. It will probably need the care of a veterinarian, and it’s illegal in most states to keep a native species without a license. Contact a wildlife rehabilitation center. Your

local park service can point you to the nearest rehab center. 4. After any contact with an injured/orphaned animal, wash your hands and change your clothing as soon as possible. You don’t know what germs the animal may be carrying. 5. Teach children about local wildlife. If they find an animal that is sick or injured, make sure they know they should tell an adult right away. 6. You CAN make a difference. Severely injured animals may not be able to return to the wild, but many rehab centers keep them as display animals and use them to teach the public more about them. Unless you are a veterinarian, you cannot accurately determine if an animal will survive or not. Animals that really have no chance will be humanely euthanized instead of left to suffer, which in a case like that, is the kindest thing that can be done. -- CARLY IN RICHMOND HEIGHTS, OHIO DEAR CARLY: I hope my animal-loving readers will give your letter the consideration it deserves, because it highlights the fact that sometimes people -- with the best of intentions -can cause more harm than good. If you encounter an injured animal, the wisest thing to do is contact animal control or a local shelter. DEAR ABBY: My friend says if it weren’t for sex, you wouldn’t have enough material to write your column. I disagree, and have told him that you could still do your columns. What say you? -- TOM AND JERRY IN CINCINNATI DEAR TOM AND JERRY: I say I could -- but it wouldn’t be as much fun.

FESTIVAL from page one

Graham said he’s heard Gorham tried one a few years ago though the event didn’t go well because of the sub-zero temperatures. Given the success of Sled Fest this past winter, Graham said he felt it would be a good chance for the town to complement events like that by doing something extra. Even though Sled Fest was an event later in the winter, Graham said the winter festival could be something either right before the holidays or afterwards. He added this could incorporate other holiday-related things like having a Christmas tree on the common. The town hall, said Graham, could serve key location for the events. He added it could be a place for people to go in, sit down, and have refreshments or even check out some entertainment like music. Starting a winter festival is really something for the people and businesses in Gorham, said Graham. He added it will show people the town is working to promote the community. There’s also an obvious economic benefit, said Graham. He added a big event would draw people into the downtown. Hopefully, Graham said it could lead to economic development if someone comes to the event and sees an opportunity to start a business or relocate. Graham said the town could promote the event outside of New Hampshire. He added people in Boston are always looking for a reason to get out of the city during the winter and check out something new. If the event can get support from the community and get started, Graham said he hopes to see it become an annual eve TROOP F LOG from page 16

CHARRETTE from page one

Laflamme said DOT has already acquired half of the properties required and hopes to complete all the acquisition by this fall. The entire project is scheduled to be completed in 2013 at a cost of $10 million. The city’s share is 20 percent or $2 million, which was part of the capital improvement, bond the city borrowed two years ago. Taylor and Associates, who did the city’s recent master plan, have put together a team of professional planners, architects, engineers, and landscape architects. The team will look at how to reuse new spaces crated by the project, how to minimize impacts to properties adjacent to the route, and improvements such as landscaping and parks. The charrette kicks off this Friday, April 29 at 1 p.m. with a public walking tour of the neighborhood, starting from the Recreation Center of Green Street. Following the tour, at 2 p.m., will be the first of two public listening sessions to collect input from residents and community officials. A second listening session will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday. All of the charrette

events are being held at the Recreation Center. The design team will hold an open work session from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday to develop its recommendation, considering the input collected from the listening sessions. A public presentation of the recommendations will begin at 2:30 p.m. In conjunction with the charrette there will be a public forum on the architecture and history of the neighborhood. Done as part of the required mitigation for the project, the forum will be held Saturday morning at the city hall auditorium from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Lynne Emerson Monroe of Preservation Company will speak on the architecture and history of the neighborhood and the ways in which both reflect the lifestyle of residents today. Monroe will discuss how porches, stonework and other details help define the neighborhood and how you can help preserve them. Monroe and builder Frank Whittemore will explore ‘The Stories Your Building Can Tell and How You Can Take Care of Its Stories’. Local historian Poof Tardiff will give the audience a chance to share recollections of living in the area.

Gorham Huskies come back to defeat Groveton Eagles, 4-2 BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM -- Gorham’s Jon Chabot and Cody Gauthier had key RBI doubles in the sixth inning, leading the Huskies to a hard fought 4-2 victory over a feisty Groveton Eagle nine in Gorham Monday. “Groveton played very well today,” said Huskie coach Jean LeBlanc. “They made the plays defensively, getting a couple of beautiful running catches and on several hard hit balls. Their hitters went to the plate and put the ball in play. We made some errors and they took full advantage. A great day for the Groveton baseball team.” The Huskies got on the board in the first inning. Junior Pat Pike singled and went to second base on a fielder’s choice. Pike scored on an RBI single by teammate Cody LeBlanc for the 1-0 lead. The score stayed that way until the sixth inning. Gorham rode the no-hit pitching of senior ace Doug Willey. With one out in the sixth inning, the Eagles plated two runs on two hits, and three Gorham infield errors. Willey clamped down with the bases full and just one out, getting the final two batters on strike outs. The Eagles were now on top 2-1. Gorham came back in the bottom of the sixth

inning. After an out, Willey walked and forced out at second base on a LeBlanc fielder’s choice. With two outs, Jake St. Hilare worked his at bat for a free pass, moving LeBlanc into scoring position. Chabot tied the contest stroking a ringing double to the left field corner to tie the game 2-2. Gauthier followed with a double to left centerfield to plate both St. Hilare and Chabot, giving Gorham the 4-2 lead. Groveton got the tying run to the plate in the seventh inning. However, Willey notched his 15th strike out of the contest, to keep Gorham’s record unblemished at 4-0. “We can’t look past any opponents,” said LeBlanc. “We have a veteran team and can’t go through the motions. We need to get production from our middle of the line-up and its not happening at this time. The kids will continue to work in practice and hopefully we can over come some of our lack of hitting quickly.” The Huskies will travel to Lincoln on Wednesday, before playing four straight games next week.

GORHAM -- WOODSVILLE 18 GORHAM 0 The Woodsville Engineers scored ten runs in the first inning and then rode the one-hit pitching of Katie Davis, defeating Gorham 18-0 in an opening regular season contest in Woodsville recently. Davis threw the first four innings and got relief help from Morris in the final inning. The duo combine to strike out ten Lady Huskies and walking just one. The only hit for Gorham, came off the bat of senior Mallory Coulombe in the third inning. On the mound for Gorham, senior Megan Lapointe went the distance, setting down a pair of Engineers and handing out ten free passes. Woodsville slugged out 15 hits, three off the bat of Hunnington and a three run homer from Alex Graham in the third inning. GHS 0 0 0 0 0 0-1-1 WHS 10 1 4 3 X 18-15-1 Pitching: GHS- Lapointe and E.

Senior Sarah Landers hurled for the Lady Mountaineers giving up an unearned run on two hits, walking one Huskie, and setting down nine on strikes. Senior Mehan Lapointe went for the Gorham girls, surrendering nine hits, walking seven, and striking out one Mountie. The big hits in the Berlin first inning came off the bats of Cassie Martin, Trisha Falardeau, and Megan Morin. Martin followed up that at-bat in the second inning with a long two-run homer. The lone Huskie run came in the top of the fourth inning. Senior Val King reached on an error and stole second base. Freshman Julie Labnon got the RBI hit for the Lady Huskies.
