GORHAM – The sale of the Gorham paper mill to New York-based Patriarch Partners was finalized Friday morning and the new owner announced it will begin refurbishing the mill immediately with plans to resume production within five weeks. “We are extremely excited to have finalized this transaction and look forward to the journey of rebuilding and revitalizing the business,” said Lynn Tilton, founder and CEO of Patriarch. “Patriarch is committed to turning around distressed and dormant businesses with the dual goal of building portfolio value while sustaining and creating jobs in America. This acquisition presents an opportunity to achieve both goals as we rehire the mill’s workforce and make the necessary investments and operational changes to return the com-



pany to long-term profitability,” Tilton said in a written statement. Patriarch said Tilton is active in setting the strategy for all Patriarch portfolio companies and will be very involved in the rebuilding of the Gorham mill. She plans to be at the mill in June for a painting party with union workers. Patriarch said it expects to get the towel machine up and running within 30 days and have the remaining two specialty paper machines operating within 90 days. The company plans to rehire union workers and management within the next several months. Over the next 15 months, Patriarch said it plans to acquire and install a new tissue machine at an estimated cost of $35 million. Producing initially two ply tissue, the machine will require the hiring of about 30 new employees at what will be known as Gorham Paper and Tissue. see FINALIZED page 16

Mill sale lauded by local officials BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM – Reaction to the sale of the Gorham paper mill to Patriarch Partners was positive with officials optimistic about the long-term future of the plant. “It’s great. It’s just great,” said Gorham Town Manager Robin Frost. “We couldn’t have been more pleased see LAUDED page 17

Ceremony honors fallen officers BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN— Law enforcement officials and community members gathered together to honor those who have fallen in the line of duty at the local Peace Officers Appreciation and Memorial Service. White Mountains Community College hosted the brief ceremony Friday morning to honor fallen law enforcement officials. Nearly 50 people attended the ceremony. “We give thanks to law enforcement officers and their family for the sacrifice they make,” said Frank Dumaine, coordinator of the college’s criminal justice program. New Hampshire will be celebrating its 19th Peace Officers Memorial Service this year, and the college is hosted the North Country’s fourth ceremony.

During the ceremony, Dumaine read the names of the 42 officers, throughout the states, who died in the line of duty. More than 10 of those officers were from Coos County. Hadley and Robert Platt presented the wreath during the ceremony to honor their father, Joseph Platt, of Northumberland. The college began hosting the ceremony two years ago because of the cooperative work between the institution and local law enforcement agencies. Executive Councilor Ray Burton said it’s important to have this ceremony in the region. “This afford folks who have a connection with law enforcement the opportunity to salute and say thanks right here in northern see CEREMONY page 16

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. (NY Times) — With Gabrielle Giffords, the wounded Arizona congresswoman, watching from a wheelchair, the shuttle Endeavour lifted off Monday morning on a mission to pry secrets from the universe. At 8:56 a.m. Eastern time, the spacecraft rose slowly on a pillar of fire, picking up speed and eventually disappearing from view as it stabbed through a layer of clouds on its way to orbit. Commanding the six-man crew was Capt. Mark E. Kelly, Ms. Giffords’s husband. The congresswoman, who was shot in the head in an assassination attempt in January, watched in private with relatives of other crew members and said, “Good stuff, good stuff,” as the shuttle rocketed away, according to her chief of staff, Pia Carusone. Captain Kelly’s twin brother, Scott, who is also an astronaut, gave a bouquet of roses to Ms. Giffords, who was wearing her husband’s wedding ring on a chain around her neck. Outside the space center, crowds that law enforcement officials had estimated could reach half a million people watched the liftoff, the next to last in the 30-year shuttle program. “It was a fantastic launch,” Michael P. Moses, director of the mission’s management team, said at a news conference. “A great day for us.”

Israeli troops fire as marchers breach borders

JERUSALEM (NY Times) — Israel’s borders erupted in deadly clashes on Sunday as thousands of Palestinians — marching from Syria, Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank — confronted Israeli troops to mark the anniversary of Israel’s creation. More than a dozen people were reported killed and scores injured. With an unprecedented wave of coordinated protests, the popular uprisings that have

swept the region touched Israel directly for the first time. Like those other protests, plans for this one spread over social media, including Facebook, but there were also signs of official support in Lebanon and Syria, where analysts said leaders were using the Palestinian cause to deflect attention from internal problems. At the Lebanese border, Israeli troops shot at hundreds of Palestinians trying to force their way across. The Lebanese

Donald Trump opts out of presidential run


I could have gone on flying through space forever.” —Yuri Gagarin

(NY Times) — Donald Trump has fired himself. Mr. Trump, the real estate mogul and reality television host, is not going to run for president, he said Monday, ending months of over-the-top speculation that he might seek the 2012 Republican nomination. “After considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided not to pursue the presidency,” he said in a statement. “I maintain the strong convic-

tion that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election,” Mr. Trumps said, adding, “Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion, and I am not ready to leave the private sector.” In addition to his statement, Mr. Trump announced his decision in person at Monday’s event for the broadcast networks to preview their fall lineups. “I will not be running for president,” he said.

military said 10 protesters were killed and more than 100 were wounded. Israel said it was investigating the casualties. In the Golan Heights, about 100 Palestinians living in Syria breached a border fence and crowded into the village of Majdal Shams, waving Palestinian flags. Troops fired on the crowd, killing four people. The border unrest could represent a new phase in the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad of Syria.

Opening of spillway seen to relieve pressure on river VICKSBURG, Miss. (NY Times) — The opening of the Morganza spillway has relieved pressure on levees downriver, leading officials to believe that the Mississippi River will crest at Baton Rouge and New Orleans sooner and at lower levels than had once been predicted. With the continuing release of water from the swollen Mississippi through the spillway, the river is now expected to top out at 45 feet at Baton Rouge on Tuesday, instead of at 47.5 feet on Sunday, said Ron Trumbla, a spokesman with the National Weather Service. Without the opening of the spillway, the river’s level would have been at a record level, topping the mark of 47.3 set during the 1927 flood. In New Orleans, the river is expected to crest Tuesday, but is forecast to rise no higher than its current 17 feet, according to the National Weather Service.

Charlie Co. honored on return from Afghanistan BY NANCY BEAN FOSTER THE UNION LEADER

MILFORD — After coming home from a year-long tour in Afghanistan and having some time to settle back into their daily lives, the 140 men and women of Charlie Company were honored in a celebration at the Hampshire Dome on Sunday morning. Hundreds of people, including Gov. John Lynch and his wife, Susan, Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen, and top New Hampshire Army National Guard brass turned out for the Freedom Salute Ceremony for members of C Company, 3rd Battalion, 172nd Mountain Infantry Regiment. The Freedom Salute Ceremony was designed to give recognition to the soldiers who spent a year in Afghanistan fighting in some of the most dangerous places in the ongoing war on terror, according to Guard Adjutant General William Reddel III. Reddel thanked the 140 warriors for the job they did overseas, but most important to him was that every member of Charlie Company came home. Lynch said that despite Sunday’s rain, it was a great day in New Hampshire because the flowers were beginning to bloom, the Red Sox had beaten the Yankees in two games, “and you are all home and safe in New Hampshire.” “You are our heroes,” Lynch said. “You have made all of us in New Hampshire very proud.” Lynch, Shaheen and Ayotte credited the soldiers who fought on the front lines of the war on terror with being instrumental in taking out Osama bin Laden. “It is because of you and the dedicated men and women like you that Osama bin Laden will never again plot, support or in any way participate in an act of terror,” said Lynch, “and that’s because of you.” “This was an ‘all military’ action,” said Shaheen. “The effort that each of you put in helped make us safer.”

The ceremony was also a time to celebrate the families of the men and women who supported the soldiers back home. Ayotte, whose husband was deployed to Iraq, said that aside from the days her children were born, having her husband come home safely was the best day of her life. Ayotte extended a thank you, which was repeated throughout the ceremony by others, to Heather Newman and Melinda Drewniak, two military wives who managed a family support group for the members of C Company and their kin. During the ceremony, all of the soldiers received tokens of appreciation for their service and families of the soldiers who went out on their first deployment were given clocks to count the minutes until their loved ones came home. Sst. 1st Class Michael Kiernan was awarded a Bronze Star, 1stLt. Allen Corey, and Spc. Travis T. Chase were given Purple Hearts, and Spc. Kehan Connors, Spc. Taylor Goodwin and Pvt. Michael Coleman were given Army Commendation Medals. Officials also offered tokens of thanks to Newman and Drewniak, as well as members of the public and employers who went to great lengths to ensure that the soldiers had access to the support they needed both during and after deployment. The ceremony was bittersweet for Capt. Daniel Newman, the company commander, who left Charlie Company on Sunday afternoon for a new assignment. Newman, a firefighter from Merrimack, said that Reddel had flown out to see the company before they were deployed and spoke four words to Newman that stuck with him throughout the next year: “Take care of them.” “That was my mission,” said Newman. “That was foremost in my mind, to take care of these guys on the ground.”

Our students have what it takes to succeed To the editor: I had the privilege of transporting our BHS track and field team to the Newfound meet this past Saturday. From graduating seniors, to up and coming freshman, I had the opportunity to engage a number of them in casual conversation throughout the day. One young man revealed that he was going into military service following graduation, probably in Special Operations, aiming toward possible career with the CIA. Another young man’s goal was to enroll in the Community College Criminal Justice Program, intending to be ready when our new federal prison needs him. Another senior athlete revealed a more short term goal which was to make that 10 foot pole vault before graduation. ( He’s going to do it, I could see it in his eyes). A freshman “shot putter” now has a goal of putting it “in the road’. He shot over 30 feet where most of the others throughout the meet were in the 24 to 29 foot range. One young lady, boarded the bus with no less than four medals hanging from her neck...through my rear view mirror, I observed this same young lady making

sure that all her teammates had something to eat when we stopped at Burger King. When we finally got home, everyone was visibly tired, and glad to be home. Still, one young man took it upon himself to pick up the trash between the seats, and another grabbed the broom and swept the bus floor before calling it a day. There were many similar stories and interesting observations on this trip. Let me tell you, this is a mentally aware, highly motivated, physically fit, and highly competitive and upbeat group of young people, and there are more of the same coming up throughout our school system. That rear view mirror gives me the opportunity to look toward the back of the bus every day, and I can see the future, at every level, and we’re on the right track. Saturday though, our BHS track and field team, unknowingly, confirmed that they have what they need to succeed, and our nation’s future will be in good hands. You represented your city and your school very well, as you always do. Thanks for a good day. Paul Cusson Berlin

The title of this column refers to, yes, two previous columns titled “Short Strings” and “More Short Strings” which took their name from a book my sister gave me. It told the story of a man who was clearing out his late father’s house and found a box marked “String Too Short To Save.” Inside there were a great many short pieces of string. Many of my short strings refer to the mistakes, and sometimes even abominations, that are found in public words, and I often shout strongly-worded advisories at the television screen, but it doesn’t help. One that did help was a quietly-worded advisory in Hannaford market. Some of the check-out lanes were reserved for a certain number of items or less. I told a clerk that “less” refers to things that are measured by volume and “fewer” refers to things that are measured by number, as in “I have less milk, but you have fewer cookies.” Hannaford is a large organization, but I learned that it does not turn a deaf ear to small advisories and the grammar in the sign was changed. So thank you, Hannaford, all is not lost. Another ire-raiser is the sudden widespread use of “product” to describe almost anything that comes from the effect of almost anything else. The offering that pushed me over the edge into yelling at the television screen celebrates the wonders wrought by a scalp lotion that will lead to “a healthier product.” I keep shouting that it might lead to healthier hair, but the message hasn’t gotten through. I also shout at the overweight television pitchmen who prance around in bikinis and cowboy boots to persuade me to patronize their patron. It doesn’t. Another distempered salute goes to the man who urges me buy his “chowdah.” Phony regional accents don’t work for me, either. It did, however, remind me of a tender moment that came during a research trip for an article titled “Ski the South.” I was in the deep south of Indiana and a little boy came over and said, “Excuse me, sir, but can I ask you a question?” I said sure, and he said, “I’ve been wondering where you learned to talk that funny way.” Recent columns have also mentioned my recurring problem with squirrels, one of which is spelling the word correctly on the first try, or even the second or third. This season they almost drove me out of house and home with the violent games they play on the other side of my plasterboard ceiling when I’m going to sleep. Then I discovered that they hate loud sounds, so I put on a record of my friends and I playing music and cranked the volume to 10 and the rodents fled. The only problem is, very loud sounds in my one-room cabin made it difficult for me to sleep, and I had to think of something else. So, as I reported recently, I stapled hardware cloth over the rodents’ entrance, but they were able to squeeze through. It was so tight that shreds of their fur were left in the edges of the metal, but the call of nature, or something, drove them to keep pushing. A few days later the opening was large enough for easy access, which showed they were still thinking. Not only that, but just I learned that the very best brushes for pin-striping on cars are made

of squirrel fur. Then serendipity struck. (The word is from an ancient Persian fable called The Three Princes of Serendip who keep making useful discoveries by accident.) I had to find a way to beat the squirrels, I just had to. One problem was that their doorway was up under the eaves of my house and behind a high dense bush that was rooted many years ago by Betty Whitney and grew so enthusiastically that I couldn’t get through it or around it, so whatever I did could not be done at arm’s length, I needed arm extenders. I have an industrial-strength stapler that can be unfolded from its desk-top position and just a few days ago I found a heavy duty rubber hammer. I don’t know where it came from, but there it was and the princes of Serendip would know that this was not an accident. I quickly learned that the added length of the unfolded stapler and the handle of the rubber hammer were exactly enough to let me reach in and staple down the edges of the hardware cloth for a squirrel-proof barrier. It didn’t take long for them to see what had happened, and now they sit on a low branch of the spruce tree next to my cabin and look at the secure and impenetrable barrier and chatter to each other. Maybe they’re discussing a new plan, but I don’t want to borrow trouble, so I leave them alone. This pleases me, it’s right up there with the solution I found for the flying squirrel invasion, the one that had those remarkable creatures hurtling around in my cabin. My first thought was to shoot them. I’m a good shot and .22 caliber shot shells are available, so this had a chance. All I had to do was keep a missed shot from going on past the flyer into something I liked. I also thought about the splatter effect of newlydeceased flyers. Then I remembered one of the best ideas I ever had, the one that saved an end-ofseason party the employees of Wentworth Hall were having in our barn. It started off well and got better, but the room has a very low ceiling and a bat joined the fun. This always starts a panic, because everyone thinks a bat will get tangled in their hair. Bats won’t, because they have exquisitelytuned radar, but that’s hard to remember for a person who’s getting buzzed. Besides, bats are useful, they eat flying bugs on a summer night. Then came the great idea. A CO2 fire extinguisher was near to hand, so the next time the bat came by I gave it a burst. The temperature of the expanding gas was below the lower limit of a bat’s operating range and the visitor fell senseless to the floor. Then I took it outside and laid it on soft grass while it recovered, and soon it returned to its good works. Now I’m wondering if the fur my uninvited guests leave on the edges of hardware cloth in their doorway is right for those very expensive painter’s brushes. I don’t like rodents living with me, but my affections can always be bought if the price is right. Nicholas Howe is a writer from Jackson. E-mail him at

By Holiday Mathis You’ll also need to get away to your own quiet space periodically. The solitude is necessary for you to assimilate what you learn and rebuild your strength and vision. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Friends want you to think like they think, and you may be open to influence. You have a talent for trying on a mindset to see how it agrees with you. If it doesn’t feel right to you, you’ll just think something else. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As much as you appreciate a good challenge, you will not be in the mood to deal with mundane mysteries, e.g., the mystery of the lost keys or jacket. Stay organized and aware. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You tell the truth, but you are also judicious about which truth to tell. You have an excellent sense about what someone might like to hear. You speak honestly and make this person feel terrifi c about himself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just when you thought you had gotten rid of all your old baggage, you’ll open another cabinet door and find a whole new pile of old emotional stuff just waiting to be hauled off. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 17). Your sense of purpose is bigger than life. Through the next 10 weeks, you are all action and follow-through. July brings a lovely break from your normal routine. You’ll reflect and make a new plan. Your love life sizzles in August. You’ll work and earn more in September. You’ll master an art in November. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 20, 19, 3 and 4.

Cul de Sac

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Not only do you need someone to say they will cooperate, but you need that person to actually do it. Make sure you have a full commitment before you move forward. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are slow to anger, but once you do “go there,” the impression tends to last. You don’t mean to hold a grudge. It just takes you a while to process all of the emotions. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Just because you have the gift of gab doesn’t mean you always feel the need to talk. You enjoy quietude when you’re alone, and you appreciate comfortable silence in the company of a loved one. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s a fine day to quest. You’ll love how a search turns out. If you don’t find what you were looking for, you’ll at least find something else of value that you weren’t expecting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll make a connection with a fellow fire sign -that’s Aries, Leo or Sagittarius. When you look into this person’s eyes, you see something real behind them and feel an energy that matches your own. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Calm yourself. Being relaxed is your success secret. The ideas and solutions flow through you. As long as you have a positive attitude, you’ll find a way to do it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Doctors suggest that dietary variety is healthier than eating the same foods every day. Similarly, you’ll be enriched by a wide array of social influences. Change it up. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will love the bustle and fun of the day.

DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old graduating senior, “Renee,” has told me I have taught her nothing about living life. Furthermore, she informed me that her school counselor agrees with her, saying I have failed to teach her the skills needed to be successful in life. At first I was angry and denied everything my daughter said. Now I am beginning to doubt myself and the way I have raised her. Have I taught her the necessary skills to live her life? Does she lack what it takes to make it through the good and bad parts of life? How can I know my Renee will be able to “fly out of the nest” because there is no safety net to catch her? -- DOUBTING MOM IN MINNESOTA DEAR DOUBTING MOM: Before you second-guess yourself any further, check with Renee’s school counselor to make certain he or she was quoted correctly. Does your daughter know how to save money? Balance a checkbook? Hold a job? Does she know right from wrong and how to assert herself? Many of life’s survival skills are learned by imitation, the rest from experience. You can’t protect your daughter from everything. Like most parents, you should cross your fingers and pray, and avoid blaming yourself for anyone else’s poor choices. DEAR ABBY: I am part of a circle of five guy friends. We’re all around 30. Some of us date regularly, looking for the right girl. One of us, “Ian,” is with “Jenny,” who we’re concerned about. They are now living together. Jenny doesn’t abuse Ian or cheat on him. We just think he could do better. She’s pushy and materialistic, and it’s impossible to have a two-way conversation with her. This isn’t just my opinion. Some of Jenny’s friends describe her the same way. Because we’re all so close to Ian, we hate to see this rela-

tionship progress. We worry he’ll be forced to give her what she’s aiming for -- a ring. I know he’s a grown man and can make his own decisions. Would it be wrong for one of us to tell Ian what we think of her? We hate watching what we consider a slow train wreck that’s bound to get worse. -- GOOD BUDDY IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR GOOD BUDDY: It wouldn’t be wrong, but it might be unwise for one of you to tell Ian what you think of Jenny. He might get the message better if you ALL tell him during a boys’ night out. It may be difficult to extricate himself from the relationship now that they’re living together -- providing he even wants to. (Some men like overbearing women.) But at least he will know that his friends have second thoughts about her, and that may open his eyes. DEAR ABBY: I had a falling out with my oldest son and his wife two years ago. They have two daughters whom I dearly love, and I know they love me. I wrote my son and daughter-in-law to beg for forgiveness. I messed up partly out of hurt and anger, and also because of the medications I was taking. I asked my son if they really want to take away the only grandma the girls have left. I also wondered if two years of not being able to see my granddaughters was punishment enough for them and me. I have held out the olive branch, but apparently they’re not ready. Can you think of anything else I can do? -- HOLES IN MY HEART IN KANSAS DEAR HOLES IN YOUR HEART: Consider asking another family member or religious adviser to intercede for you. However, if that fails, then there is nothing else you can do. Hope and pray that time will bring reconciliation. You have my sympathy.

Plant Manager Willis Blevins has agreed to remain with the mill. “I am honored to have Mr. Blevins as part of our senior management team. He has extensive, valuable experience managing the mill and is highly respected by the union workers and the entire Gorham community. In addition, he shares our dedication, work ethic and commitment to ensure the mill will operate successfully,” Tilton said. The mill has been closed since October when over 200 mill workers were laid off. Gov. John Lynch said the state persisted in working to get the mill re-opened even when several buyers and potential buyers backed out. “This is a great day for Gorham and Berlin, the North Country and the entire State of New Hampshire. We did not give up hope, we did not quit and our hard work has paid off. I am extremely pleased that we were able work together to identify a buyer with a plan to keep the mill

open. This mill is important to the North Country economy, and it’s important that we keep our workers employed,” Gov. Lynch said. “We all must recognize it is because of the workers – and their skills and strong work ethic – that made this agreement possible.” Last month, Patriarch Partners confirmed that it had signed a commitment letter to purchase the facility from FP Acquisitions LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Counsel RB Capital. Patriarch declined to reveal the purchase price but a check with the Coos County Register of Deeds office revealed the private equity firm paid $2 million for the property. Patriarch said it intends to make significant capital expenditures and operational changes necessary to make the mill profitable. In addition to the tissue machine, Patriarch will invest in the installation of the gas line and the conversion of the mill’s boilers to switch from oil to natural and methane gas. The

ers will be working again, and I can’t wait to see smoke coming out of the stack and the machines up and running again.” Lozier also had words of praise for Lynch, Bald, and Blevins and said without the state’s help, he believes the mill would have been torn down by now. Patriarch Partners, LLC, describes itself as a private equity firm and holding company managing 74 companies with annual revenues of more than $8 billion. Tilton has stated she is dedicated to saving American manufacturing jobs by rescuing financially distressed American companies. Patriarch’s portfolio includes a broad range of industrial concerns including Dura Automotive, American LaFrance, Denali, and MD Helicopters, in addition to iconic American brands such as Rand McNally, Spiegel Catalogs and Stila Cosmetics. Patriarch claims to be the largest woman-owned business in America employing more than 120,000 employees.

The Gorham Water & Sewer Department and R.T.D. Enterprises will begin the replacement of the Sugar Hill Reservoir tank cover the week of May 16, 2011. Residents of the Town of Gorham may experience fluctuations in water line service pressures during the construction of the new cover, especially residents located in the North Main Street and Cascade Flats areas. The construction of the new cover should be completed within three weeks. Anyone with extremely low pressure should contact the Water & Sewer Department immediately.

conversion is expected to take five to six months and result in significant cash savings. The Androscoggin Valley Regional Refuse Disposal District has voted to spend over $4 million in district and grant funds to bring natural and landfill gas to the Gorham mill. Patriarch said it also plans to take advantage of synergies within its own portfolio and expects that a portion of the pulp used at Gorham will be produced at Patriarch’s Old Town Fuel & Fiber mill in Maine. Tilton cited the work of Lynch, George Bald, director of N.H. Department of Resources and Economic Development, and AVRRDD Executive Director Sharon Gauthier as instrumental in getting the sale finalized. She also recognized the support of USW Local 75. USW Local 75 President Spanky Lozier thanked Tilton for purchasing the mill and committing to keeping it operating as a paper mill. “The rollercoaster ride is done.

New Hampshire,” said Burton. During the ceremony, Dumaine highlighted the “Below 100” initiative. The initiative, said Dumaine, is designed to curb the number of officer deaths in the country. He added an average of 15 officers die each day in the United States. Dumaine said law enforcement officers need to take steps to reduce that number. The initiative encourages officers to wear necessary safety gear, wear seatbelts in the cruisers and watch their speed while on patrol, said Dumaine. He added people should remember that complacency kills. “The number of deaths is unacceptable,” said Dumaine.

at the way this has all unfolded. It’s a real boost to the local economy. People are walking with a little more spring in their steps lately,” Frost said. Frost said she had the opportunity to meet Patriarch Partners CEO Lynn Tilton when Tilton came to the mill to meet with state and union officials. She said Tilton indicated she was determined to make the deal happen and Frost said she came away from the meeting with a good feeling about Patriarch Partners. “I’m thrilled beyond belief,” said Berlin Mayor Paul Grenier, calling the paper mill “one of the economic stones in the community we need to keep viable.” Grenier said local and state officials worked hard to get the mill sold to a company willing to invest in it. He pointed out that not only is Patriarch planning on getting all three paper machines up and running but has stated it wants to purchase a tissue machine that will add about 30 new jobs. “That’s good news,” said Executive Councilor Ray Burton. He thanked CEO Lynn Tilton and Patriarch Partners for their willingness to invest in the mill, reopen the plant and put people back to work. “I would express thanks on behalf of Coos County and the surrounding area for her company stepping forth,” said Burton. “Patriarch is a company with a successful track record and commitment to manufacturing, and we are very pleased they are choosing to invest in the hard working men and women of the North Coun-

try,” said Gov. John Lynch. “We are very appreciative of Patriarch Partners for their commitment to the North Country and their efforts to put 240 citizens back to work,” said New Hampshire Department of Resources & Economic Development Commissioner George Bald. “With over 70 portfolio companies including many manufacturing firms, Lynn Tilton has an excellent track record and dedication to job creation. I also want to applaud Governor Lynch for his leadership in seeking a new buyer and the many state agencies that helped to make this deal a reality,” said Bald added. “I am pleased that we are one critical step closer to getting the Gorham paper mill operational again and getting residents of the North Country back to work with today’s purchase of the Gorham mill by Patriarch Partners. It is crucial that we get North Country residents back to work, and I will continue to do all I can to get the mill running again, as well as advance other economic development initiatives in the North Country,” said U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen. Shaheen helped find funding for the gas line project described as critical to the success of the overall project. “This is terrific and very hopeful news for the North Country. Coos County residents have made clear that jobs are what they need most, and this is an encouraging sign for the area. I will continue my efforts to foster a job-creating climate north of the notches, including the opening of the still vacant federal prison in Berlin,” said U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte.

PURSUIT from page one

night. Staup allegedly led officers on a chase from Willard Street to its end point on Wentworth Avenue and crashed into three police cruisers during the course of the pursuit. Neither Staup nor any of the officers involved in the chase were injured, said Lieutenant Barney Valliere. He added Staup’s vehicle was heavily damaged but none of the cruisers, two from Berlin and one from Gorham, sustained any major damage. Valliere said the pursuit began when a woman reported seeing someone steal a gas can from a neighboring residence and then leave the area. He added he met with the woman and got a descrip-

tion of the vehicle. Driving on Willard Street, Valliere said the car was parked in a driveway and it didn’t appear anyone was inside of it. While preparing to radio for information on the vehicle, Valliere said he saw the tail lights come on as the car reversed into the cruiser. The car pulled forward, and Valliere said he put the cruiser into reverse to get out of the way. “And then he hit me again,” said Valliere. Staup then allegedly took off down Willard Street, said Valliere. He added he continued to pursue him. The chase continued onward from Willard Street to Madison Avenue, Pine Street, Willow Street, Hill-

E&S Rental Sale and Service

Spring is time to spruce up around the house. We have the equipment to help you. For cleaning, we have professional carpet cleaning machines that are both easy to use and to carry for just $12. per day. Attachments for cleaning upholstery and stairs are available at no additional cost. Our professional cleaning solution is economical and specially designed for use in this type of machine. We provide you with complete operating instructions, and the machine is clean and tested after every use. For outdoors, rent a pressure washer to clean decks, driveways, pool areas, siding, or for stripping old paint which can save you hours, if not days, of scraping, and will make the new paint job last longer. How about renting a power broom to remove winter’s left over sand from your front yard? For getting your garden ready, we rent both front and rear tine tillers. A garden not only provides you with healthy, fresh vegetables, but can save you money too.

We have been selling Toro lawn mowers for over thirty years and are factory trained not only for servicing Toro, but for most other brands. Servicing a mower yearly, not only makes the mower cut cleaner, but makes it last longer, run smoother, work easier and be safer. A mower blade should be sharpened (depending upon use) several times a season and replaced every year or two. We carry, or can get, original blades for most makes. Substituting with universal blades, available at big box stores, generally do not work as well as original blades, and can actually be dangerous. You may not want to think about winter now, but spring is the best time to have your snowblower checked over. Servicing yearly helps you enjoy a winter without breakdowns. In stock now, at a great off season price, is one leftover 5HP Toro. E&S has been in business since 1975 and is located on the corner of Bridge and Hutchins St. Open 8-5 M-F.
