City selects downtown consultant Selectmen BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN – The city has selected H.E. Bergeron Engineers Inc., of North Conway as its consultant for the downtown design and economic strategy project. The firm, one of two that responded to the city’s request for proposals, was approved by the city council at Monday’s meeting. The firm was recommended by the full steering committee on the project as well as a subcommittee set up to review the proposals. City Planner Pamela Laflamme said HEB has put together a team that includes John Wacker, the landscape
architect who worked on the Bickford Park and is doing the landscape design for Laidlaw/Berlin Station’s biomass project at the former pulp mill site. The economic consultant on the team is Stuart Arnett, formerly economic director for the state Department of Resources and Economic Development. The other firm that submitted a proposal was Grubb & Ellis, a real estate firm based in Manchester. Laflamme said the steering committee felt the Grubb & Ellis proposal was interesting but premature. She said the committee wants to first determine what the community wants and needs in see CONSULTANT page 6
SEC hears testimony on Laidlaw motion BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
CONCORD - The Site Evaluation Committee spent a full day last week hearing from witnesses on Laidlaw Berlin BioPower’s motion to transfer its permit to Berlin Station LLC. The SEC is scheduled to deliberate on the motion at a yet
undetermined date in early June according to SEC attorney Michael Iacopino. Last fall, the SEC issued a conditional certificate of site and facility to Laidlaw to build a 70-megawatt biomass plant on the former pulp mill property in Berlin. Since then, Laidlaw has announced a major corporate reorganisee SEC page 6
allow trail through town forest BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
GORHAM— The Gorham Board of Selectmen agreed Monday night to open up a small portion of the town forest for a snowmobile and off highway recreational vehicle trail. The board unanimously supported allowing a train through the forest for a one- year trial period. The trail would cross through the northeastern corner of the forest for about 300 feet, said Clinton Savage, of the N.H. Bureau of Trails. Savage said the trail would link Gorham to trails through the Yankee Timber Forest and into Jericho State Park. He added during the winter time, it would link up with the rail trail. Both the Gorham Water and Sewer Commission and Conservation Commission agreed to go along with opensee TRAIL page 8

BERLIN – Residents get their opportunity tonight to comment on the city council’s proposed budget of $31.3 million with its estimated 50 cents tax increase. The budget eliminates four and a half positions including two fire fighters and two public works positions. Mayor Paul Grenier and the city council have made it clear they consider the budget a work in progress and want to hear from the public. Grenier has said he hopes to avoid laying off any city employees and avoid a tax increase. Some members of the council are pushing for a decrease in the city’s $31.70 tax rate. The hearing gets underway tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the city hall auditorium.

Apocalypse postponed until fall
OAKLAND, Calif. (NY Times) — Here we go again. A California religious radio impresario who predicted — wrongly — that the end of the world would begin on May 21 revised his prophecy on Monday, saying now that the end is due in October. In a rambling, 90-minute speech, broadcast both online and on his stations, Harold Camping, whose Family Radio network paid millions of dollars to promote his prediction, said that he was stunned when the rapture did not happen on Saturday. “I can tell you very candidly that when May 21 came and went it was a very difficult time for me, a very difficult time,” said Mr. Camping, 89, a former civil engineer. “I was truly wondering what is going on. In my mind, I went back through all of the promises God has made, all of the proofs, all of the signs and everything was fitting perfectly, so what in the world happened? I really was praying and praying and praying, oh Lord, what happened?” What he decided, apparently, was that May 21 had been “an invisible judgment day,” of the spiritual variety, rather than his original vision of earthquakes and other disasters leading to five months of hell on earth, culminating in a spectacular doomsday on Oct. 21 — something he had repeatedly guaranteed.
I think everyone has an apocalypse fantasy, what would I do in the event of the end of the world” —SImon Pegg

1,582 U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan.
In wake of tornado 1,500 are missing, official says
JOPLIN, Mo. (NY Times) — About 1,500 people are unaccounted for in this battered city, a Fire Department official said Tuesday, as rescue workers took advantage of a few hours of sunny weather to continue searching for survivors in buildings leveled by the
country’s deadliest tornado in more than 60 years. At least 117 people have died. While the number of those unaccounted for is alarmingly high in a city with only 49,000 people — and raises the specter of a far higher death count — it may merely be a
reflection of the widespread breakdown of communication systems here in the wake of Sunday’s vicious storm. Many residents who fled ahead of the tornado or survived it may be unable to notify the authorities or family members who have reported them missing.
NATO bombs Libyan capital TRIPOLI, Libya (NY Times) — In the heaviest attack yet on the capital since the start of the two-month-old NATO bombing campaign, alliance aircraft struck at least 15 targets in central Tripoli early Tuesday, with most of the airstrikes concentrated on an area around Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s command compound. The strikes, within a 30-minute period around 1 a.m., caused thunderous explosions and fireballs that leapt high into the night sky, causing people in neighborhoods a mile or more away to cry out in alarm. Just as one strike ended, the sound of jet

engines from low-flying aircraft in the stormy skies above the capital signaled the imminence of another. Huge plumes of black smoke rose and converged over the darkened cityscape. “We thought it was the day of judgment,” one enraged Libyan said. The intensity of the attacks, and their focus on the area of the Bab al-Aziziya command compound in central Tripoli, appeared to reflect a NATO decision to step up the tempo of the air war over the Libyan capital, perhaps with a view to breaking the stalemate that has threatened to settle over the three-month-old Libyan conflict.
Mubarak faces trial for killing of protesters
CAIRO (NY Times) — Egypt’s top prosecutor on Tuesday ordered former President Hosni Mubarak to stand trial in connection with the killing of unarmed protesters during the 18-day-revolt that forced him from power, yielding to one of the revolution’s top demands just days before many of its organizers had vowed to return to Tahrir Square for another day of protest. In a statement, Egyptian prosecutor Mahmoud Abdel-Meguid said he would also charge. Mubarak and his two sons, Gamal and Alaa, with corruption and self-dealing. The prosecutor also plans to file charges against a businessman close to the family, Hussein Salem. If Mubarak is convicted on the accusations, he could potentially face the death penalty. The announcement of the trials on the eve of the four-month mark of the Jan. 25 revolution is the clearest indication yet that the Egyptian authorities are moving to satisfy the public demand for retribution against the Mubarak family even before the parliamentary elections expected this fall.

Trooper pleads guilty in Dover woman’s medical salvage sticker scheme alert pull cord fails BRENTWOOD — A former New Hampshire state trooper was sentenced to jail Tuesday after admitting he helped supply salvage stickers for vehicles that weren’t properly inspected. Fred Stamatatos admitted in court that he helped supply the stickers in exchange for work done on his car. He asked the judge for leniency, saying he had already lost much, but the judge said Stamatatos violated the public’s trust, and more jail time was warranted. The case against Stamatatos began in May 2010 when a state police wiretap picked up a conversation he was having with a man already under investigation. That man is accused of supplying driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. When entering his guilty plea to a charge of bribery, Stamatatos admitted giving the man salvage stickers for cars without performing the proper inspections. In exchange, he was not charged for repairs and a paint job on his own car. Defense attorney Mark Sisti told the court that his client was a fool who has lost his career and is now branded as a felon, all for a brake job and a
little paint. “He’s paid a very, very high price, but the great thing about this guy is that he’s trying to rebuild himself,” Sisti said. “He hasn’t given up, and he’s honestly trying to redeem himself. I’m absolutely sure he will.” Stamatatos has already served 34 days in jail, but the attorney general’s office asked for additional time. The judge sentenced the former trooper to six months in jail, with three months suspended. Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said the sentence will help serve as a deterrent. “The message that the attorney general’s office is sending today is that public servants will be held to the highest standards if they violate the public’s trust in them,” Young said. “We will seek incarceration for them when warranted.” Sisti said has some concerns about his client’s safety as a former police officer in jail. Many members of Stamatatos family were in court Tuesday but didn’t want to speak after the sentencing. —Courtesy of WMUR
Boy’s body returned to Texas AUGUSTA, Maine -- The body of Camden Hughes, the boy left along a dirt road in Maine, is back in Texas for a funeral to be held this weekend, according to a family friend. Shirley Miller, a longtime friend in Texas, told the Associated Press on Tuesday that the body of 6-year-old Camden Hughes is back on Texas soil. The funeral is scheduled for Saturday. Camden’s body was released Friday by the Maine medical examiner.
The boy’s mother, Julianne McCrery, of Irving, Texas, is being held in New Hampshire, where she’s charged with killing the boy in Hampton before leaving him in South Berwick, Maine. She was originally detained in Massachusetts. Miller says McCrery’s father, her other son and the son’s father traveled to Maine to retrieve Camden’s remains. She said they didn’t meet with Julianne McCrery. —Courtesy of WMUR

DOVER — A Dover woman said her mother died when her medical alert cord at a public housing unit failed to signal emergency dispatchers. Dorrie Segee said her 68-year-old mother, Sheila Segee, died after suffering a brain hemorrhage Saturday afternoon. Dorrie Segee said her mother pulled the emergency medical alert cord in her housing unit at Niles Park, which triggered a buzzer and flashing light and unlocked her door, but it didn’t signal dispatchers to send an ambulance. She said one of her mother’s neighbors heard her pounding on her bedroom wall, found her on the floor and called 911. Segee said she hopes her mother’s loss
will be a wakeup call to the Dover Housing Authority and all of its residents about a problem with the pull cord system Jack Buckley, executive director of the Dover Housing Authority, said an investigation is under way into what went wrong. Buckley said the medical alert system in Sheila Segee’s unit had been tested on March 17. He said it was unclear whether she had been able to pull the cord all the way to properly trigger the alarm. He said the Dover Fire Department and Hackworth Security, the company the city uses to monitor the system, are looking into the issue. —Courtesy of WMUR

An open letter to Senator John Gallus To the editor: Since the overwhelming majority vote in the State House of Representatives on proposed HB648 and the continuing enormous public support for said bill, it is now time for the Senate to also show its support for the passage of this bill. Being 52 years old and a lifelong resident of this great state, I cannot think of anything more important to the welfare and protection of the property owner’s rights and the land they own. The passage of this bill is not a bill directly against the Northern Pass, but it is against the taking of private land by companies, or projects for private financial gain, (which should never be allowed no matter what laws are or are not in place). The passage of this bill is about
protecting private, individual, citizens from being adversely affected by large, wealthy, corporations taking of land for improving their profits. I’m sure many lobbyists have contacted you about this upcoming vote and have tried to persuade you for various reasons to vote against this bill. I am not a lobbyist; I am only one of the many thousands of residents of N.H. who are against the possibility that large, wealthy, foreign, companies could possibly take land from N.H. land owners against their will. Please Mr. Gallus and your fellow senators …, fulfill the will of the people of N.H. Your time and efforts are appreciated. Jon Wilkinson Lancaster
Congratulations, you’re doing a great job To the editor: Fellow Berlin/Gorham residents, you’re doing a great job. Notice as you drive by the larger dealers that they are not to busy. East side and lower Glen Avenue still have the best prices in town. Lower section of New Hampshire and other parts of the country have begun experiencing what some consider gas wars which is great. It helps to bring prices down. Keep supporting the
lower prices and the others will come down. Remember it’s your choice and your money. Exon/Mobile’s net income for the 1st quarter of 2011 ran at 69 percent above the previous quarter for a net of $10.7 billion. Gas in New Hampshire on Feb. 7, was $3.09. Let’s get it back to what it was then. Let’s not slack up now, keep up what your are doing. It’s working. Dan Marcou Gorham

On The Town In Gorham
Last week was a good one. Two of my favorite people in the world showed up to spend two days eating, drinking and talking about the “old days” in our family. They were my nieces Beverly Anderson of Lynnfield, Mass., and Norma Claassen of Orinda, Calif.. They are my sister Marion’s daughters. Marion passed away last September at 99 so her life and death was on the list of things to be discussed. While we did talk about her very long and mostly joyful life, we also talked about others matters including my need to get down on paper how I would like to be remembered when my time comes. That is something which needs tending to as the days go by. Eh! One of the things we did discuss was family history. Marion and I had done some travelling and research back in the 90s. We had traveled to New York State where our parents had been born and raised. I gave them the paperwork we had gathered and we discussed some of the details we had discovered there. While I had the death certificates of three of the four grandparents, we had found nothing about the death of our paternal grandmother, Bridget. She had been listed on my father’s birth certificate, but, even though we had made a special effort, including a trip to
the state records in Albany, nothing more was found. Since my sister Marion had been told that Grandmother Bridget had suffered from post-partum depression, I did some research on various institutions in the area but found no references. I’m hopeful that something may turn up on Bridget. While there was some serious talk with the two ladies, it wasn’t all serious. It was serious fun. Feeling honored by their presence, I hosted a dinner at one of our best restaurants, Libby’s Bistro for Norma, Beverly, Lala and Sal and Ned Baldwin, Lala’s daughter and son-in-law. It was a very pleasant affair with excellent food, good service and lots and lots of chat. I was pleased that we had such a fine establishment readily available in which to to do the honors. The next day we talked about our family for hours while Norma made notes on her lap-top computer. We then had lunch at Moonbeam on Exchange Street before the gals headed home. While we had done our best to show off our town I’m hopeful the gals and their husbands too can come back another day. There are other things to show them about this wonderful community deep in the White Mountains and to talk some more about our family past and present!.

Musical Notes Musical Notes People have always wondered why things happen the way they do, because if we don’t have answers to those questions, the world will come adrift, and we will, too. Take, for instance, the mandolin. There are eight strings, and for a large part of history there was a deep belly to add resonance. These do not lend themselves to fast or loud playing because it takes so long for the sound to develop and fade, that’s the lute belly at work. I found a lute belly in the attic of my grandmother’s house and I scratched away at it without rewarding results. Then I took it with me when I was on the crew of Madison Hut at the northern end of the Presidential Range, and I didn’t improve. Then, at Middlebury College, a pair of upper classmen came to my room and told me to play the school song. I didn’t even know the school had a song, and by the end of the year I was thrown out because I’d missed a paper in a required freshman course. I made it up a week or so later, but it wasn’t enough. The next stop was a dream job in Rocky Mountain National Park and no thoughts beyond that, but snow closed my job and I drifted back to Deerfield in an unmistakably not-in-school condition. Our neighbor said he knew a college in Vermont and I might try there. I did, and this brought the enrollment to fifty. The place was filled with music, there were almost as many instruments as there were students, and it changed my life. Dudley Laufman took me on with the Canterbury Country Dance Orchestra, a name we made up because we had to have a name at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, the one where Bob Dylan was booed off the stage. The other hitch
came when someone pointed out that only one of us lived in Canterbury, but that was settled when the oldest and noblest man in the group pointed out that no one in The Budapest String Quartet lived in Budapest either. Since then, the core members of the group have made numerous records and tapes and played for hundreds of dances and I play at home almost every day, but now it’s tenor banjo, partly because I like the sound and partly because they’re such beautiful instruments. Then on Wednesday I found the reason for this unexpected life. It came when I wondered what was in a long lost folder and I found “Howe-Orme CylinderTop Mandolin, Elias Howe Company, Boston, Massachusetts, ca 1900,” with an elaborate logo that I can only partly decipher. It starts, “Who were they? The names Howe and Orme are both quite common and occur surprisingly often in juxtaposition. For example, George Washington’s extant correspondence includes letters to a fellow named Orne and to a better-known British general named William Howe. The Utah Supreme Court had a Justice Orme as well Chief Justice Howe. Then it quotes Sherlock Holmes: “At half-past twelve, we found ourselves upon the steps of Mrs. Warren’s house, a yellow-brick edifice in Great Orme Street, a narrow thoroughfare at the northeast side of the British Museum. Standing as it does near the corner of the street, it commands a view down Howe Street with its more pretentious houses.” The Howe-Orme pairing appears on a group of high-quality musical instruments manufactured by the Elias Howe Company in Boston at the turn of the 19th century, and I read on. see NOTES page 5

NOTES from page 4
“Elias was one of several highly accomplished members of the extended family that traces its roots to John Howe of Sudbury. Our Elias Howe Jr. has occasionally been mistaken for his eponymous relative, Elias Howe Jr, the inventor of the sewing machine and the zipper. Julia Ward Howe is another illustrious and musical relative, she composed The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” We also learn that he was a successful music publisher in Providence, R.I., where he also repaired instruments and umbrellas, then he moved to Boston and became involved in music publishing. During the Civil War he was making drums and became so famous that Abraham Lincoln asked him to be the Director of Bands for the U.S. Army, but he turned down the offer and continued to publish music books, make drums, and sell flageolets. A few moments of heavy lifting in my dictionary department discovered that a flageolet is like a recorder or a fipple flute, a nice name for a lost art. Elias Howe’s own favorite instrument was the fiddle, he maintained a lifelong interest in instruments, and his instruction books included editions on the banjo and guitar and he published large collections of fiddle tunes. Elias Howe is more widely known for his work on the sewing machine. There were many attempts in this direction including a model with the sewing parts in one room and a belt connecting them
to a power plant next door, though history is silent about the engine. Steam was considered, but this was probably too space intensive and perhaps too likely to explode. We can assume that a horse on a tread mill was not the right thing for even a quite liberal household, and research stalls there. The enduring point is that the gentry considered it uncouth to have mechanical objects on display in their households, and this lead to a treadle-driven model with elaborate floral designs and gilded accents, presumably so polite company wouldn’t know what it was, and my mother used one of these all her life. For me, the best part was all the mechanical parts for various sewing purposes and were fun to play with when I was sick in bed and tired of making channels in my pillow and pouring in mercury so it ran around in the channels. The first instrument I took seriously was the fiddle, which I played at Newport and never really liked. More properly, I never liked me playing the fiddle. I do, however, have Mr. Howe’s book with some wonderful music and also the racist fun-making that was considered good form in those days. He also became quite rich, but none of that survives. Then this week’s mail brought a box of the CCDO CDs. That’s me in the middle of the picture, we really are in a church, and I’ve often wondered if old Elias heard those heavenly airs. E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NewCo Energy LLC, a project company managed by Cate Street Capital, would remain the principal owner. The motion to the SEC said a new corporate entity, Berlin Station, will be formed to replace PJPD Holdings LLC and Laidlaw Berlin BioPower, LLC. Berlin Station will lease the facility to Burgess BioPower. Laidlaw said it intents to replace Homeland Renewable Energy and Fibrowatt as its major contractors with a single firm, Waldron Engineering and Construction The SEC certificate requires Laidlaw to have a signed fuel agreement with Cousineau Forest Products

There will be several members of the historical society on hand to give the public an overview of the history of the barns, current preservation efforts and repairs, and hopes for their future. The barns are not generally open to the public, so this an opportunity to see inside. Proceeds from these yard sales go towards the purchase of heating oil to keep the Moffett House Museum & Genealogy Center open year round. Located at 119 High Street in Berlin, the Moffett House is the only museum in Coos County open year round five days a week. before the start of construction.

The trio faced cross-examination from Counsel for the Public and from Jonathan Edwards, manager of Edrest LLC. Edrest was granted limited intervenor status. The case is being heard at the Public Utilities Commission offices in Concord.

needs in the downtown before trying to market the retail sector. Laflamme said they want to create an environment that will encourage more private investment to make for a successful downtown. HEB’s bid of $70,000 was also determined to be the low bid. The steering committee has raised about $100,000 for the project with funding from the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund, Public Service of N.H., the Berlin Main Street Program, and the city. Laflamme said the project will hold a public meeting to collect input from residents. She said that meeting will probably be held in late June. She estimated it will take nine months to a year to complete the entire design/ strategy. In other business: * The council signed off on several old easements and access agreements for the 62 acres of the former mill site owned by Cates Street Capital. City Planner Pamela Laflamme explained that Cate Street Capital has completed a land title survey for the property, which turned up the outdated agreements. All of the requests were reviewed by city officials to ensure there were no issues with the city releasing its rights. * Councilor Michael Rozek asked if the council should request a meeting with local businessman Jonathan Edwards to discuss his decision
to appeal the N.H. Public Utilities Commissions decision to grant conditional approval of the power purchase agreement between Public Service of N.H. and Laidlaw/Berlin Station. Rozek said he is confused about whether Edwards is driven by love or hate for the city. Mayor Paul Grenier said he believes Edwards is working against the city’s interests in continuing to fight the proposed biomass plant. Grenier said Edwards’ opposition is creating economic and emotional havoc with the city. He noted, for example, the project would purchase 3,200 tons of steel from a local company, Isaacson Structural Steel. “I have not been able to determine what he has to gain by this,” Grenier said. Grenier and Rozek noted at the same time Edwards is fighting the biomass plant, he is delinquent on property taxes to the city for two of his properties. Councilor Tom McCue said the issue is before the PUC and said he believes it should remain there. “Let the folks in Concord handle it,” he said. Grenier said he was going to decline Rozek’s suggestion at this time and wait to see how the issue unfolds over the next week to ten days. In addition to Edwards, acting as Edrest LLC, the PUC decision has also been appealed by the wood-fired Independent Power Producers.

AVH to introduce room service to all inpatients BERLIN -- Androscoggin Valley Hospital has announced that beginning Wednesday, June 8, room service will be available to all of its inpatients. Instead of pre-ordering a day before mealtime and attempting to guess what one might crave, each in-patient will now have the ability to order his/her meal at mealtime and have it delivered within 30 minutes. A menu detailing a wide variety of items for breakfast, lunch and dinner will be presented to each in-patient to enhance his/her experience within Androscoggin Valley Hospital. A dedicated phone line to the AVH Food Services TRAIL from page one
ing the trail. Savage said he met with Dave Patry, superintendent of the Gorham Water and Sewer Department, and didn’t find any impact on the watershed. Savage said there aren’t any water crossings along the trail, and the land pitches away from the watershed. The state would build the trail to its own standards, said Savage. Selectman Paul Robitaille asked whether the town will assume any liability by opening the trail. Savage said the state has a $2 million policy that it gives to all the landowners. Last year, the Water and Sewer Commission decided not to support a plan to run a trail through the town forest. After an on site visit with the snowmobile club, the commission felt there is too much work associated with the proposal that could create problems for the water supply in the town forest. During the meeting, Savage floated the idea of opening the state-owned section of the rail trail to OHRV use.
Department will be established to ensure quick preparation and delivery time, and ultimately increased patient satisfaction. Working with the hospital’s nutritionists, a coordinated effort will be made to see that individual patient requests can be met, within their prescribed dietary restrictions. “In our conversations with patients, one thing that has become clear is that they would like more flexibility in ordering their meals,” said Carl L’Heureux, AVH director of food services. “We are glad to be able to provide a service that has been requested by those that we serve.” Savage said this section only includes the portion of the trail from the Route 2 parking area to just beyond the trestle. He added that’s the only portion the state owns. Ray Bergeron, of Motorcycle Snowmobile Service, said there are both pros and cons to opening that section of the trail. The obvious pro, said Bergeron, is the economic impact having OHRV trail access in Gorham would be. He added restaurants, hotels and other business would all benefit from the people it would draw to Gorham. The cons, said Bergeron, would be some possible dust issues and trail maintenance. He added another is that the ATV club would need to do a lot of self-policing along the trail. The selectmen were hesitant to take any action Monday night. “There are a lot of questions we’d have to have answered about that section,” said Robitaille. The board decided to hear the proposal for opening that section of the rail trail at its next meeting. “We’d need to discuss this in more detail,” said Robitaille.

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams
By Holiday Mathis powerful and empowering. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s easy for you to get attention when you want it. But you’re not always sure what to do with it once you have it. Get back in touch with your purpose. Remember what you want. Then you’ll make the attention you get count. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want to know what motivates people, and you also want to know how they do what they do. Your curiosity will make others feel important, and they will want to share openly with you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Levity and mischief are in order. Refuse to be too serious, and for a while, it will seem as though you live outside the fixed rules and structures of ordinary existence. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve had some luck with the game you’ve been playing. Your winnings satisfied you for a time, but that time is over. Now you want to raise the stakes again to make things interesting. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may not be in charge, but you are in the know about what’s going on with your people, and this gives you a certain influence. You believe in yourself, and others believe in you, too. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 25). Education is your ticket to success, and you’ll quickly learn what you need to know. June features the loving words you long to hear. You’ll attract money in July. Resist using it to establish your status. Remain conservative and low key, and you’ll be financially comfortable. You’ll be offered a prime opportunity in September. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 26, 43, 9, 45 and 28.
Cul de Sac
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The best leaders understand that leadership is a humbling position. To adopt a vision that is right for everyone in your group, you have to really listen well to the others. You’ll do a stellar job of this. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a curious, experimental mood, and you’ll lead with your sense of fun and adventure. Because of this, you will land in a magical state of mind, and others will live in your magic, as well. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s a lucky day for retail therapy because you’ll accurately estimate what you need. You’ll get a lot of use out of what you purchase today, and you’ll get the best price, too. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You never want to be a nag. That’s why you’ll search for the most enticing and imaginative way to keep someone thinking about the benefits of doing what you want them to do. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some friends need more patience and compassion than others. Being a good pal sometimes means having to overlook thoughtless comments, especially when they were clearly not intended to harm. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You love to nurture others and witness their development. You will experience one of your favorite kind of moments today -- the one where you see the lights come on because a person finally understands. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As the sign of the scales, you balance opposing qualities in a way that makes others marvel. For instance, today you are simultaneously confident and modest,

WOMAN IN LOVE WITH GAY MAN WONDERS IF THEY HAVE A FUTURE
DEAR ABBY: I started a relationship with a co-worker. We went out for several months, and I found myself really enjoying his company. The feeling was mutual. After several months I told him I was developing feelings for him, more than just friends. He told me he was gay. I was shocked, saddened and angry all at the same time, but we went on to develop an even stronger friendship. I have fallen in love with him, but I have had counseling and I believe those feelings are in check. We have a special bond that’s hard to explain. For lack of a better term, we have used the words “soul mate” to describe this feeling. He has even said he would like a lifelong commitment with me and has thought about marrying me. He said holding hands, walks on the beach and romantic things aren’t a problem for him to share with me, but he cannot offer me anything sexual. He wants to share his life with me. We aren’t kids -- we’re in our 40s and 50s. He’s a wonderful man, and I do want him in my life. Is it wrong to think about a future with him? -- CONFUSED ON WHAT TO DO DEAR CONFUSED: It’s not wrong to think about it. But while you’re thinking, consider carefully how important sex is to you. Some, not all, women would be content with what he’s offering. But what if you should meet someone? You also need to know whether this man is ready, willing and capable of forgoing a sexual relationship with a man. How would you feel about it if HE met someone? My advice is not to make a decision this important alone. Check in with your therapist and examine all of your feelings there. Also, contact the Straight Spouse Network, which was mentioned in a recent column, and talk frankly with others who are involved in mixed relationships. You’ll find it online at www.StraightSpouse.org.
DEAR ABBY: I grew up thinking my mother was a good cook. Now that I’m married and have lived away from home for 10 years, I realize that Mom, with all her good intentions, was an awful cook. She was never adventurous, prefers canned and frozen foods, no vegetables and highly processed grains. I have chosen a completely opposite path and buy lots of natural, unprocessed fresh foods. As a result, I now cook all the holiday meals -- with Mom helping with the prep and small tasks. I have tried to encourage her to eat better and expand her horizons, but it isn’t sinking in. Every time we have dinner at her house, I feel like I have just eaten at a fast-food establishment. I don’t want to be a control freak and say, “My way with dinners at my house only,” but I’m struggling to find a compromise when she wants to “treat” us to dinner at her place. Suggestions? -- FOODIE IN COLORADO DEAR FOODIE: It’s one thing to be a “foodie” and another to be a food snob. A “fast-food” meal once every few weeks won’t kill you, so be a sport and let your mom reciprocate. And the next day, return to your normal routine to make up for it. DEAR ABBY: How do you politely refuse letting someone borrow something when he or she asks? Even if it’s your best friend or a relative? In the past, I have loaned items that were not returned in their original condition, or it was a pain in the neck to get them back in a timely manner when I needed them for myself. Help, please! -- TOO UNSELFISH IN PORTLAND, ORE. DEAR TOO UNSELFISH: Here’s how. Smile and tell the person you no longer lend items to anyone, because they have been returned damaged or late, so that is now your “policy.” Period.

Switser captures closest Riverside Speedway Late Model race ever GROVETON -- Jesse Switser captures closest Riverside Speedway Late Model finish ever. Opening day racing was taken to the next level at Groveton’s Riverside Speedway Sunday, during the Napa Spectacular/Bobby Shores Memorial/ Caron Building Center Spring Fling. Spectacular finishes in the Street Stock and Dwarf car features, were just a prelude to what was in store for the Late Model division. In the North Country Ford Late Model feature, three time champion Bryan Mason took to the front and held off all challenges. Vermont’s Jesse Switser took to the outside on lap 35 and began a final five lap door handle to door handle battle with Mason. The duo were inseparable and raced without making contact with one another for the remainder of the feature. As the checkers flew, officials had the number 10 of Mason edging out Switser. “What a finish we had,” said general manager Jean LeBlanc. “It just doesn’t get any better than that. The fans got a real treat of short track racing at its finest. Bryan Mason showed his championship side by leaving room to run on the outside for Switser. Anyone who has ever driven a race car knows how easy it would have been for Bryan to lean on the #25 at any point. They are both to be commended.” LeBlanc continued, “The race was so close, we announced to every one during victory lane, that the finish was unofficial. We took the time to get input from all of our officials before rendering any decisions. Given the totality of all the input received from track officials, we decided that Switser got to the line by the very smallest of margins. There were no losers in this race. The fans were treated to a race that will be talked about for a long time.” Rookie Late Model competitor Luke Shannon took home the third spot with Vermont’s Brett Gervais and Gorham NH’s, Heywood Herriot,
rounding out the top five. Heat wins went to Switser and Mason. The JA Corey/US Cellular Outlaw Sportsman came out thirteen strong. Littleton’s Kenny Marier, driving the Richard Laflamme owned Chevy #1, got past Bethlehem’s Doug Laleme just past the half way mark and drove to take the victory. Marier got a loud response from the Riverside faithful in victory lane. Laleme was second, Chandler Davis third, Jeff Marshall was fourth substituting for David Ofsuryk, and Sammy Gooden finished fifth. Laleme and Davis won the qualifying races. The Budweiser Super Stocks may be light in numbers, but the racing was more than exciting as 2010 champion Matt Carbone worked his way by Shawn Hood to earn the feature win. Groveton’s “Nitro” Nick Gilcris motored into second place with Hood third, David Allen fourth, and Trevor Roy in the fifth spot. Gilcris took home the heat win. The Town & Country Motor Inn Street Stocks put on a whale of a feature. Stark’s Shawn Swallow held off the hard charging Nick Pilotte for the top spot. Concord Vermont’s Brett Rowell rounded out the podium finish. Dean Switser and Ben Belanger rounded out the top five. The top five finishers were all under a blanket at the finish, with the third fourth and fifth positions three wide crossing the stripe. The twisted Tea Dwarf cars did not wait for the feature to begin their action. 2010 champion, Howard Switser, got caught up into the tires of another competitor and rolled his car during the qualifier. Switser unfortunately suffered a broken leg and may out for the season. In the feature, Kevin Scott Hockman took to the early lead and was chased down by Campton NH’s Dave Gyger. Hockman made contact with Gyger sending the field scurrying about in turn two. When racing resumed, it was see RIVERSIDE page 18

In the Caron Building Center Veteran Daredevil division, Brent Ming had the field covered as he was chased by Berlin’s Aaron Poulin and the #05 of Tyler Austin.

was Anthony Leary out front. The veteran racer took the emotional victory thanking his wife on their anniversary. Bear Lapan took second and Dave Gyger responded with a strong third finish. Hockman won the qualifier. The Griffin Family Angels were well behaved and ran their feature event from start to finish. Stark’s Shauna “The Rocket” Randall worked hard on the outside to earn the victory. Traci Nelson was a solid second and Shawna Whitcomb finished third. Whitcomb carried the checkers in the heat race. Woodsville’s Jason Wyman got the pole for the Jiffy Mart Cyclones and carried a torrid pace from the start to the end, to lay claim in victory lane. Dana Graham had his best finish ever in the runner-up position, with Bethlehem’s Jeff Ainsworth in third. Cole Kilby and Travis Moulton went fourth and fifth. Heat wins went to Moulton and Wyman.
