Cross Machine rolls out first portable truck dumper BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN— Cross Machine Shop recently unveiled it’s first portable truck dumper— the first of its kind made in the United States. “We’re pretty proud of this,” said Rick Fournier, president of Cross Machine Shop. Cross Machine Shop tested the dumper, which is a piece of machinery designed to empty the contents from trailers, and is ready to ship it off at the end of the week. The portable dumper is the end result of nearly a year of work. The portable dumper is entirely made and designed in the United States, said Fournier. He added the material came from Isaacson Structural Steel, a company from Westbrook provided the hydraulic equipment, much of the design was done in house and it was entirely assembled at the machine shop. “The results are very pleasing,” said Fournier. There are other portable truck dumpers on the market, said

Fournier, but not like the one Cross Machine designed. The truck dumper consists of two main pieces, and takes a couple of hours to assemble, once it arrives at a job site, said Fournier. He added all of the railings; supports; and other components are all collapsible. “It’s got a lot of potential because it’s so portable,” said Fournier. He added the crew at the shop worked very hard on the project. There are a number of other benefits of Cross Machine’s dumper, said Fournier. Fournier said the dumper is designed so the loads removed from the trailers don’t need to be cleared away constantly. He added the machine can dump about three loads before the material needs to be cleared away. Another benefit, said Fournier, is that it’s powered by an onboard hydraulic engine and doesn’t require an additional power source. He added the whole system see TRUCK DUMPER page 7

Selectmen approve noise ordinance BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM— The Gorham Board of Selectmen Monday adopted a noise ordinance but some residents still voiced concern about it. Even though Monday’s meeting wasn’t a public hearing, Gorham residents still voiced their objections to the town’s new noise ordinance during the public comments portion of the night. Resident Henry Sanschagrin said he felt the selectmen shouldn’t enact the ordinance since it’s not what was brought before the town in March and approved by the voters.

“You folks haven’t got the right to vote yes or no on this,” said Sanschagrin. Sanschagrin said the board changed the language from what residents voted on during the town meeting. He added this ordinance as it now appears isn’t what the voters accepted and the selectmen don’t have the authority to pass it as amended. “A yes or no vote is illegal,” said Sanschagrin.

Stray cigarette caused Hillside Ave. fire BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN— Authorities determined a stray cigarette started Tuesday’s fire that displaced a family of five. The fire at 575 Hillside Ave., in Berlin, started near the side door of the house after a cigarette was discarded on the ground, according to Captain Rob Jewett, of the Berlin Fire Department. Once the fire started in the addition on the building, it engulfed the rear portion of the building.

Google’s music service falls short (NY Times) — Google had big plans for its new digital music service. It wanted an online store to compete with iTunes and Amazon, as well as a “smart locker” storage system in which the company would stream music to its millions of users from a gigantic central jukebox. But the service that the company unveiled on Tuesday, called Music Beta by Google, fell short of those ambitions. There is no store, the streaming function comes with restrictions, and, like Amazon’s Cloud Drive service announced in March, using it requires a long upload process. What came between Google and its ambitions was an obstacle familiar to many digital music start-ups: despite months of negotiations, the company could not obtain licenses from the major record companies. In interviews, Google executives put the blame squarely on the labels. “Generally there were demands on the business side that we think were unreasonable and don’t enable us to have a sustainable, scalable music business,” said Zahavah Levine, director of content partnerships for Google’s Android unit and the lead negotiator with the labels. Music Beta was introduced on Tuesday at Google I/O, a developers’ conference in San Francisco.

Neo-Nazi father is killed; son, Missing 10, steeped in beliefs, accused Al Jazeera

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (NY Times) — The day before he allegedly shot his father, the sandy-haired 10-year-old boy showed off a prized possession to a visitor. It was a thin leather belt emblazoned with a silver insignia of the Nazi SS. “Look what my dad got me,” the boy said shyly, perched on the living room stairs. A little more than 12 hours later, the police say, the boy stood near

those stairs with a handgun and killed his father, Jeff Hall, as he lay on the living room couch. It was about 4 a.m. on May 1; paramedics declared Mr. Hall dead when they arrived. The police say that the killing was intentional, but that the motives behind it are still not fully understood. But whatever the reason, it has cast fresh light on the fringe group to which Mr. Hall devoted his life: the National

Socialist Movement, the nation’s largest neo-Nazi party. Hall, who led a chapter of the group in Riverside, Calif., east of Los Angeles, had predicted that his political activities — in a world rife with hatred, suspicion and violence — would lead to his demise. “I want a white society,” Hall said. “I believe in secession. I believe in giving my life for secession.”

Libyan rebels seize control of airport MISURATA, Libya (NY Times) — Rebels in the contested western city of Misurata stormed the city’s airport on Wednesday afternoon, swarming over the grounds from the south and east and reclaiming it from the military of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. Seizing the airport in Misurata, which has been under siege for nearly two months, represented one of the most significant rebel victories in the Libyan conflict and a stiff military and public-relations blow to the Qaddafi government. The airport and its approaches were the last remaining pieces of terrain in the city to be controlled by the Qaddafi soldiers.

With these soldiers pushed back, the western area of Misurata appeared by nightfall to be out of range of the most common of the Qaddafi forces’ heavy weapons, including self-propelled artillery, Grad rockets and 120-millimeter mortars, which loyalists have used to fire cluster munitions. Though potentially reversible, the capture of the airport appeared to be a break in the siege. With the loyalists suffering a string of defeats in recent days and the rebels gaining weapons and confidence, Colonel Qaddafi now appeared weaker than ever before, Misurata residents said.

journalist sent to Iran

(NY Times) — A reporter for Al Jazeera’s English-language news channel who disappeared while covering the uprising in Syria almost two weeks ago was sent to Iran within two days of being detained by Syrian authorities, the network confirmed on Wednesday. Al Jazeera has sought information from the Syrian government on the whereabouts and condition of the reporter, Dorothy Parvaz, since losing contact with her on April 29, shortly after she arrived in the Syrian capital, Damascus, from Qatar. It was five days before Syrian officials confirmed she was being held in the capital. The network said the officials told them that she would be released. But on Tuesday the Syrian Embassy in Washington told Al Jazeera that Ms. Parvaz was deported on a flight to Tehran on May 1, according to a spokesman for the network, Osama Saeed.

Three arrested, Gov. Lynch vetoes ‘right to work’ bill one charged with murder, in Dittmeyer case

THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, May 12, 2011— Page 3



OSSIPEE — Three men were arraigned at Ossipee District Court Wednesday in connection with the murder of Krista Dittmeyer, whose body was found in a pond at the base of the Cranmore ski area two weeks ago. Anthony Papile, 28, of Ossipee, was charged with second-degree murder. Michael Petelis, 28, of Ossipee, and Trevor Ferguson, 23, of Tamworth, were both charged with conspiracy to commit robbery. Papile faces a possible life sentence if found guilty, and Petelis and Ferguson face 15-year prison sentences. Their arrests provided the first details of a case that until Wednesday had numerous unanswered questions. According to documents filed with the court, authorities allege Papile and Petelis worked out a plan to steal money and drugs from Dittmeyer on April 22. Petelis sent Dittmeyer a text message at 9:43 p.m. that evening that told her to call him when she was on her way to his apartment on Route 16 in Ossipee. It was Petelis that lured Dittmeyer, senior assistant attorney general Jane Young said. “This defendant had the relationship with the victim,” Young told Judge Robert Varney. Petelis told people he was “her protector while her boyfriend was in jail,” Young said. When Dittmeyer arrived, prosecutors allege that Papile struck her over the head with a rubber club, and that Papile and Petelis then bound her with duct tape. Papile allegedly put Dittmeyer in the trunk of her Nissan Sentra and arranged for a ride home from Ferguson. Papile drove to Cranmore, where he worked in 2007, and allegedly dumped her bound body in the snow-making pond. He then left her car running with the flashers on and Dittmeyer’s 14-month-old daughter inside. Ferguson then picked up Papile in the Cranmore parking lot, Young told the judge, in exchange for gas money and a small amount of drugs. Papile and Petelis then allegedly divided up the drugs and money they stole from Dittmeyer. No definitive statement on Dittmeyer’s cause of death was released, but a document did say she either suffo-

cated or drowned. The courtroom was packed with reporters and family members of both the victim and the accused on Wednesday as the men were escorted in one at a time by Conway police officers and members of the State Police. Each man, shackled in handcuffs and leg irons, listened as judge Varney explained their rights and the charges they faced. The cases will be tried in Superior Court, he said, so they would not be expected to file a plea at this time. “You are presumed to be innocent,” he said. “The state has to prove you are guilty.” But the state felt it had enough evidence to ask Papile be held without bail. “The proof is evident and the presumption is great,” Young said, that Papile killed Dittmeyer, and therefore he should be remanded without bail. One of Papile’s public defenders, attorney Jesse Friedman, argued that he had not been able to confer with his client or see the evidence Young was referring to because the arrest warrants were sealed. Therefore, he said, it would premature to hold Papile without bail. Judge Varney disagreed. “I do not believe any bail will ensure the defendant’s appearance,” he said, and therefore he would remand Papile without bail. Bail for both Ferguson and Petelis was set at $250,000 cash, and if they manage to post it they would be allowed no contact with one another. Other details also came out at the arraignment. Petelis suffered a drug overdose last week, and both Petelis and Papile had prior felony convictions. Young came out after the arraignment to praise state and local investigators. “Police have worked almost nonstop on this case, 24 hours a day,” she said, “starting with the Conway Police Department, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, the State Police and the FBI.” “If it wasn’t for these officers giving their time,” she said, “these arrests wouldn’t have happened.” The next step in the case is a probable cause hearing, scheduled for May 19. Dittmeyer, 20, was originally from Bridgton, Maine. She had been living in Portland and worked as a waitress.

As promised, Gov. John Lynch has vetoed the right-to-work bill that Republicans in the Legislature have passed by overwhelming margins. Lynch said the bill wrongly intrudes on the ability of labor and management to negotiate contracts. “There is no evidence that this legislation will offer any benefits to New Hampshire’s economy or workers,” Lynch wrote in his veto message, saying out-of-state interests, not New Hampshire businesses, are driving the issue. The bill, HB 474, would bar contracts that require non-members to pay partial dues to unions that represent their rights in the workplace. The partial payments are meant to cover the costs of reaching and enforcing labor contracts. The bill would also allow fines to be levied against companies that included the provision in a contract and deducted the payments. The bill’s supporters say non-members can be intimidated into joining a union, and that the partial dues payments creates more pressure. They argue that no one should be required to make payments to a group he or she does not support. The House plans to take up a challenge of the veto on May 25. The Senate has no schedule in place at this point.

Conservatives and GOP leaders said Tuesday they are working hard to convince all Republican lawmakers to override Lynch’s veto. It requires a two-thirds majority in the House and the Senate to override. The Senate cleared that bar in passing the bill, but the House has fallen short of it twice. New Hampshire would be the 23rd state to adopt the law, and the only one in the Northeast. Supporters said the state will gain a new advantage over regional competition if it has the law in place. Lynch said the state did not need to get involved in the issue in the first place. He said the debate “appears to be largely driven by national outside interest groups, and is not a result of problems facing New Hampshire businesses and workers.” Lynch wrote in his veto message, “States should not interfere with the rights of businesses and their employees to freely negotiate contracts. That is unless there is a compelling public interest, and there is no compelling public interest in passing this legislation. He said that over seven years in office, business leaders that grew or located their businesses in New Hampshire, right-to-work has never been raised as an issue of concern. “And no New Hampshire workers have ever told me they couldn’t get a job because New Hampshire doesn’t have a so-called right-to-work law,” Lynch said.

Police: Laconia man dies days after beating LACONIA — A 54-year-old man has died more than a week after he was punched and kicked in the head in Laconia, police said. Leo LaPierre died at DartmouthHitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon on Tuesday after suffering a severe head injury. He was found unresponsive on Main Street last week. Jason Durgin, 37, was arrested and

charged with second-degree assault. Durgin is currently being held on $100,000 cash bail at the Belknap County House of Corrections. The case has been referred to the attorney general’s office, and additional charges could be filed based on autopsy results. Those results have not been released. —Courtesy of WMUR

Gorham Rec. Dept. recognizes volunteers To the editor: I would like to thank everyone who volunteered this year and in the past. I realize that time is precious, but I also know that our youth are better off, and have benefited from you giving of your time. Every year as part of our baseball / softball opening day ceremonies, the Gorham Parks and Recreation Department recognizes an individual who went above and beyond as a volunteer. Selecting one person to give this award to is one of the most difficult things I do. Each person is very important as we depend on volunteers and without their help we wouldn’t be able to offer such great programs. It was my honor this year to hand our two volunteer awards. The first volunteer award

was given to Mark and Lynn Leclerc as well as Don Mercier. Mark, Lynn and Don in a combined family effort coached a 5/6 grade soccer team, instructional basketball, a 3/4 grade girl’s basketball team and one of our baseball farm league teams. The second volunteer award was given to Chris and Linda Sjostrom. Between the two of them they were involved with coaching or assisting a 5/6 grade soccer team, the 5/6 grade boys basketball travel team and a Cal Ripken major league baseball team. Thank you to everyone who supports the Gorham Parks and Recreation Department and our youth. Jeffrey S. Stewart, Director Gorham Parks and Recreation

Thanks for making our project successful To the editor: We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made our Senior Project a great success! Our Middle School Baseball Tournament was a lot of fun and we were happy to have four teams participate. It was really nice to see so many people come and support the teams. We would also like to thank everyone who sold and

purchased our 50/50 tickets and to those of you who made delicious desserts and ran our Bake Sale! The money that we raised will be donated to the Cal Ripken Baseball Program. Once again, thank you everyone, we couldn’t have done it without you! Doug Willey, Cody LeBlanc Gorham High School

Our Lady of the Mountains Academy

Poof Tardiff

Once Upon A Berlin Time

Our Lady Of The Mountains Hello fellow Berlinites. At one point in Berlin’s history, there were three separate high schools that were all operating at the same time. They were St. Patrick’s, Notre Dame and Berlin High. By 1972 though, Berlin High was the only one remaining. St. Patrick’s operated for 10 years from 1954 to 1964. Notre Dame operated for thirty one years, opening in September of 1941 and closing in June of 1972. Berlin High has been in operation since 1885 and is still open today (2011). So far that is a total of 126 years. The town of Gorham had two high schools for a total of 23 years. They were Gorham High School and Our Lady of the Mountains. Gorham High still operates today and has been for well over one hundred years. It is the latter of the two Gorham schools and its history that I would like to share with my readers, going back to the first building built on the corner of Alpine and Main Streets and what stands on this spot today. Searching the history of Gorham, my research shows a dwelling that was built by E. C. Flanders sometime in the mid 1800s. It had living quarters on the top floor and a small store on the lower level. By 1870, two men, one whose names were Sargent and Jewett, bought and changed this place into an inn. They called it the Eagle Hotel. It was situated on the corner just mentioned and operated until about 1879. It was then bought out by a man named L.L. Jackson, who ran it for about another twentythree years. In 1902, the Eagle Hotel was purchased by Mr. C.A. Chandler. This new proprietor remodeled his new acquisition and in October of this same year opened it up for business with an elaborate banquet. He also changed the name of this hotel to the Mt. Madison House. His opening day had over two hundred people from Gorham, Berlin and all parts of Coos County show up for this grand dinner. Music for this enjoyable evening was provided by Burnham and Barney’s orchestra and the Berlin Band. After this place was finished, furnished and open for business, Mr. Chandler was given

Alpine Hotel

much credit for improving the looks and business of Gorham with an establishment of such size and enterprise. By 1907, Mr. Chandler wanted to expand his hotel business, so he purchased the famous Alpine House which was located on Railroad Street. After buying this building he literally moved it from that spot to a place next to the Mt. Madison Hotel and connected them with a dining room. The Alpine House was closed during the summer of 1906 and the news of the purchase was of interest to many summer tourists. By procuring this hotel, Mr. Chandler became one of the great hotel owners in the White Mountain region. Built in 1876, the Alpine House opened to travel business in August of that same year. It replaced the original one which had been constructed in 1851 and was consumed by fire in 1872. This hotel also had several different owners in its lifetime and was known as one of the finest establishments in the country. It was situated just about where the tennis courts are today (2011). The four story Alpine House was moved across the Gorham Common as mentioned during the summer of 1907 and put into place next to the Mt. Madison House. An accompanying picture shows when it was being moved. By 1946, the Mt. Madison House was finished as a hotel and was about ready to be turned into a high school.

this year, the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary purchased this huge complex and were in the process of converting it into a secondary boarding school for girls. An elementary school for either sex would also be operated out of this set of buildings. The Mt. Madison House was situated in a setting of great beauty and had long offered a magnificent view of mountain ranges, to a now small tourist trade. The loss of this hotel would be felt throughout the town, but the gain attained with the school would by far overshadow the loss of a small transient trade. The reason for the gain was that over two hundred girls would follow courses at this newly acquired school within the next couple of years and this would help Gorham’s business. It would bring an influx of weekend visitors during the entire school year, just as all university towns do. It would also bring the possibilities for new trade in the restaurants, gift shops, etc. As the school was getting its start, reliable sources said that close to one hundred students from many different areas had registered for the opening day in September. The rooms of the old hotel were being rapidly turned into classrooms, recreation halls, dormitories, private rooms and more. This institution opened its doors on September 10, 1946 and was known as “Notre Dame des Monts” or “Our Lady of the Mountains Academy”. When interviewed by the local media about the aim and purpose of the Sisters of Presentation, it was declared that their endeavor was “to adorn the minds of young girls with useful knowledge; to foster in them the taste for order; to cultivate good manners and deportment and above all to instill moral and religious principles which alone could produce a solid character and develop those virtues which formed the ornament and glory of true Christian womanhood”. With all of this, almost three decades (40s, 50s, and 60s) of teaching and instruction took place at this academy. By March of 1969, a decision was made to close the doors of this school forever. The elementary classes that were there also had to find another place for their education, but they had done this in 1968. The chief factor that led the school officials to reach this decision was the lack of teaching personnel and

the steady decrease in enrollment of the past several years. So, after twenty-three years of operation, this Gorham school closed after the graduation of the class of 1969. The two famous structures which stood in Gorham for nearly 100 years were now doomed to succumb to the wrecking ball. The appearance of the corner of Alpine and Main Streets was about to change drastically. In the hotel, many famous people, including Admiral Robert E. Peary and President Warren G. Harding were guests, before it became a school. James Cagney, Duke Ellington and explorer Roald Amundsen also registered here. I wonder what ever happened to the guestbook. By October of 1970, a decision was made to tear down this huge complex and in its place would be built the headquarters of Automotive Sales Incorporated, along with a three bay station. I do not believe that the service station was ever built, as this lot was vacant in 1972 and in 1974 a building called the Home Bank stood here. By 1981, Co-operative Bank President Gerald Martel and Gorham Savings Bank President Chester Lapete announced a consolidation of their two institutions. This new bank would now be called the Home-Co-operative Bank. After the bank closed, this brick facility was and educational center. It now became empty again and stood on the corner of Alpine and Main Streets for several more years. As I write this story though, a new business has just opened in this building. In the spring of 2011, just a few weeks ago, the Subway sandwich shop started doing business on this famous and historical corner. It certainly can be said that many changes have taken place on this Gorham street corner during its lifetime. These places were a residence, store, hotel, school, bank, education center and now a sandwich shop. The citizens of this cozy little town, tucked away in the northern end of the White Mountains, can now relate to this corner after reading my story. I wonder what all the students who once roamed the halls of this place when it was a school think of these changes. Time marches on.

AVH conducts Health-ARama at T & C Motor Inn

BERLIN -- The 12th Annual Health-A-Rama, sponsored by Androscoggin Valley Hospital, was held Thursday, April 28, at the Town & Country Motor Inn in Shelburne. More than 125 eighth-graders from Berlin and Gorham schools were treated to motivational speakers and educational speakers, all with the focus of teaching the attendees the value of making healthy decisions. MARKO the Magician used magic and humor to show students firsthand the power of their minds. Students learned how their minds control their ability to stay chemical-free and be safe, responsible and feel good about themselves. Danny Duval, a former football AllAmerican at Trinity High School in Manchester spoke of his experience with drugs and alcohol - an experience that led him to sleeping in cars and on park benches before a life transformation helped him become a successful coach, husband and speaker who shares his stories across the country.

Ed Gerety’s presentation, “Reach for the Stars” detailed the power of respect and responsibility; the impact and consequences of our choices and decisions; the issues of bullying, peer pressure, drugs, alcohol and tobacco; appreciation for our abilities and the people in our life; the courage to believe in oneself; and the power we have to reach out and make a difference.

nances. “The selectmen have the authority to enact the ordinance with or without town meeting,” said Frost. Selectman David Graham said the board wanted to bring the noise ordinance up at the town meeting to see what people thought about it. Frost said the board only sought an advisory vote during the town meeting. Frost said only two items in the ordinance have changed since town meeting. The first is the timeframe for construction, she said, that was expanded from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. to 6 p.m. The second change was adding fowl to the provision on noisy animals, said Frost. Sanschagrin asked how this ordinance would deal with events like concerts on the common or the carnival, or even how it affects someone who works nights and sleeps during the day but can’t because his neighbor is mowing the lawn. “It’s going to be awfully hard for your officers to enforce this,” said Sanschagrin. Chief PJ Cyr said officers would deal with complaints on a case-bycase basis. With events like the concerts or the carnival, Cyr said the town issues permits for those events and people expect there to be an extra level of noise during those events. For the person working night shifts, Cyr said it’s such a small percentage of people that the ordinance had to weigh what’s good for the public at large versus a small group of people. Graham said the ordinance is worded in a way that gives the police officers a level of discretion when handling noise complaints. Selectman Paul Robitaille said the ordinance is designed to give the police a way to handle repeat complaints and unruly situations. He added it’s not meant to keep people from mowing their lawns or doing work on their property. Resident Mike Demers said he felt the ordinance was too vague and open

to interpretation. He added anyone in town can be cited with a noise violation because it’s so open-ended. “It’s ridiculous,” said Demers. During his time in the army, Demers said he wrote a number of codes, and his superiors would have been displeased with something like this. He added it’s like a catch-22 where it encompasses anything that isn’t addressed elsewhere by other rules. He further questioned the necessity of the ordinance. Demers said there already exists state laws to deal with these situations. He added people could just simply approach their neighbors if there’s a noise issue. After reading the statistics on noise complaints in the town, Demers said he doesn’t see that it’s that big of a problem. Resident Jay Holmes said he feels having the ordinance is going to get out of hand. “I think it is going to turn neighbor against neighbor,” said Holmes. Additionally, Holmes said he feels there’s already enough of a police presence in town and this would make it worse. He added it’s also going to put more of a burden on the police and the taxpayers can’t afford any increases within the department. Resident Ron Donato defended the noise ordinance during the meeting. People can’t always simply go and talk to their neighbors, said Donato. He added there are some people that have no consideration for the people around them. It’s those cases where the noise ordinance is necessary, said Donato. Selectman Terry Oliver said if the ordinance doesn’t work out, the selectman can rescind it in a year. He added the ordinance’s effectiveness is going to be monitored to see if it’s worthwhile. Sanschagrin said the selectmen won’t be the only ones watching to see how this ordinance works once it’s enacted. “It will be watched by the citizens of this town,” said Sanschagrin.

pate and help their friends, families and neighbors, by placing non-perishable food items, cleaning and personal hygiene supplies by your mailbox on Saturday, May 14, before your mailman delivers to your home. Local letter carriers and rural route drivers will be available to collect non-perishable food donations from homes as they deliver mail along their postal routes. Food donations will be brought back to St. Joseph’s Church in Berlin where they will be sorted, placed in storage boxes and divided among the area’s food pantries. As the sorting containers become full, they will be loaded onto pallets and made ready for delivery to the area’s four local pantries: Tri-County Community Action Community Outreach Pantry, the Ecumenical Food Pantry, the Salvation Army and Coos County Family Health Services RESPONSE to Sexual and Domestic Violence’s safe house, “My Friend’s Place.” By having volunteers assist with picking up the food, and doing the sorting as it comes in, the donations will be ready for use as soon as they arrive at the local food pantries. Your non-perishable food donations, cleaning supplies, laundry detergents and personal care products are crucial in helping those in need. This year the organizations were pleased to welcome AutoNorth Pre-owned Super Store as a partner

in caring to “HELP STAMP OUT HUNGER” in our communities. Since AutoNorth opened its doors just one year ago they have been generously sharing the success of their auto sales business with non-profit agencies throughout the northern states. “AutoNorth is honored to have the opportunity to support this very important food drive. At the core of our business philosophy is our strong desire to give back to our communities in a meaningful manner. ‘Helping to Stamp Out Hunger’ in the Androscoggin Valley fits right into the model of our business plan. I had the opportunity to visit the Berlin Tri-County Community Action Food Pantry and learn about the importance of this food drive. I commend the local letter carriers, the United Way and all the volunteers and donors that contribute to this event. My partner, Shawn Hanlon and I, and all of our employees at AutoNorth encourage everyone to join us in volunteering, donating and supporting this important food drive.” said Don Noyes, co-owner of the AutoNorth Pre-owned SuperStore. Please remember to make your food donations and place your food by your mailbox early this Saturday morning. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help pick-up and sort the food, please call the United Way at 752-3343. Beverages and lunch donated by AutoNorth and Valley Creek Eatery will be provided to all volunteers.

May is Blood Pressure Awareness Month: City holding free screening BERLIN -- The Berlin Home Health Department wants to let the public know that May is Blood Pressure Awareness Month. The department will be holding a free blood pressure clinic May 19, 2 from 9 to 11 a.m. at their office located at 168 Main Street in Berlin. It is important for individuals to have their blood pressure checked because high blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke or kidney problems. Common symptoms that should lead you to have your blood pressure checked and monitored on an ongoing basis would be headache, dizziness, vision changes and ringing in ears. Low

blood pressure can be as serious as having high blood pressure and can lead to severe medical conditions. Blood pressure can change with age as well as life style and other life factors. Steps to having a healthy blood pressure include a well balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetable and low fat dairy, reducing your total and saturated fat intake, regular exercise, reducing your body mass index, avoiding smoking and reducing stress. The Berlin Home Health Department urges people to know their numbers. The department offers blood pressure cards in which clients

can keep track of their blood pressure over time. The Berlin Health Department will be having a free blood pressure clinic May 19, from 9 to 11 a.m.

The Berlin Home Health Department is also at Wal-Mart on the first Thursday of each month offering a free blood pressure clinic.

Dept. also offering blood sugar screening BERLIN -- The Berlin Home Health Department is offering the community an opportunity to have their blood sugar level tested and to find out information on diabetes.

Contact the office to schedule your one time free test before May 26. Appointments will be issued from 9 to 11 a.m. on May 26. Contact the Berlin Home Health Department at 752-1272.

By Holiday Mathis are persuasive precisely because you’re so clever. To make sure someone follows your advice, you first find out what action they want to take and then advise them to take it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your best is not going to be the same from moment to moment. You spend the day alternating between pushing yourself and relaxing your expectations. Always be kind to yourself. Never punish yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll get the job if you believe you’ll get the job. The same goes for getting the attention of the object of your affection. Work on fortifying your faith in your ability to control your own destiny. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s someone close to you who will support you and cheer you on endlessly and unconditionally. This person truly has no agenda and no expectation of ever being repaid for this pure encouragement. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Beliefs can be more addicting than substances. It is easy to get ensnarled in an unhelpful thought pattern. That’s why you must be vigilant about staying positive. Don’t even go there. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 12). Extravagance is a relative term. This year you’ll live larger than life, bound for excitement. You make your mark at work in June. July brings a connection that enlivens your social scene -someone may even steal your heart for the second or third time. Vacations are dreamy in August. You share a special connection with Libra and Aquarius people. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 26, 36, 31 and 4.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you don’t know enough about a situation, it is only human to rely on your powers of assumption. Be superhuman instead. Research, ask questions, and until you get the whole story, refrain from judgment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is a crucial day in your plan to get ahead. Stay on track. Go to bed early tonight. The earlier you wake up tomorrow the more you’ll accomplish by the end of the week. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t wait for inspiration to strike -- it probably won’t until you’re halfway through with the project. Instead, act on the best idea you have. Get in motion, and you’ll attract good fortune. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Record what’s going on around you in whatever manner you have available. Later, you’ll want to remember the bits of information exchanged, the way people spoke and the fashion of the day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s something to be said for powering through a job, even when you’re tired, bored and completely “over it.” Push through the hurdles. Life looks different on the other side. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There is a confrontation you simply must have in order to get to the next level of a project. You cannot avoid this, but since you’re still not ready, you can postpone it for a little while longer. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Wear your favorite clothes before you go out shopping. You’re likely to buy less when you realize that what you already have is better than what’s on the shelves. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: Our daughter, “Julie,” came home for the weekend so we could meet her new boyfriend, “Scott.” He’s a delightful young man, and my daughter is clearly smitten. When I suggested Scott sleep in the guest room, Julie and my wife gave me this perplexed look as though I’m from a different planet. In the end, I was deeply disappointed that they shared a bedroom. After 30 years of marriage, this created the first disagreement between my wife and me in a long time. I’m no prude. My wife and I had our share of premarital mambo, but we always slept in separate rooms while visiting our families before we were married. It was about respect for our parents’ feelings. Julie spends a lot of time with Scott’s family where they share a room. My wife is afraid if we don’t provide common accommodations in our home, our daughter will be less inclined to visit. I welcome your thoughts, Abby. Is expecting some sense of propriety being a curmudgeonly father? -- STUMPED AND TRUMPED IN OHIO DEAR STUMPED AND TRUMPED: You didn’t mention how long Julie and Scott have been involved, or whether they’re living together -- which might have had some bearing on this. However, I keep coming back to the fact that under your roof, guests should abide by your rules. If you prefer that unmarried couples sleep apart in your home, then your feelings should have been respected. And for your wife to wimp out for the reason you stated is just sad. DEAR ABBY: I work for a company that processes orders from a store at a local mall. I handle these orders and have run into an embarrassing problem. Our customers come from every imaginable ethnic background. When I take a look at some of the names on the work orders, I can’t even begin to

pronounce them. It’s my job to call these customers back to verify details and schedule installations, so what should I do? Is it more polite to try to sound out the name and wait to be corrected, or to apologize right off the bat and ask the proper pronunciation? -- TONGUE-TIED IN ST. PAUL, MINN. DEAR TONGUE-TIED: To lead off the conversation by stating that you don’t know how to pronounce someone’s name could be extremely off-putting. It would be better to sound it out, syllable by syllable, and try to pronounce it -adding, “If I have mispronounced your name, please correct me.” (It probably won’t be the first time the person has heard it.) DEAR ABBY: I have several old Bibles that are literally falling apart. What’s the proper way of disposing of Bibles? It seems wrong to just throw them in the trash or burn them. -- ROBERT IN COLUMBUS, OHIO DEAR ROBERT: The answer to your question depends upon the religion to which you belong. According to my experts, Protestants can dispose of an old Bible by giving it to someone or by throwing it away if they’re comfortable doing that -- the paper and ink are not “holy.” Old Bibles can also be given to a Bible bookstore or Bible book society for refurbishing or disposal. Catholics can either burn or bury old Bibles. Jewish people should call a temple or Jewish cemetery and ask if it has a “genizah” -- a special place to bury books with the name of God in them. (When the genizah is filled, it will be closed and buried.) Persons of other religions should consult their religious authority governing the accepted manner of disposing of holy books.
