Danderson resigns from council BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – Ward II Councilor Robert Danderson has resigned from the council, becoming the fourth city councilor to step down in as many months. Retiring from his job at Public Service of N.H., Danderson has sold his home and moved to Florida to join his wife. The council Monday night accepted Danderson’s written resignation with regret. Danderson was serving his first term on the council but previously had served four terms as mayor. In his letter, Danderson said he hopes to

see Berlin return to “an industrious, prosperous community”. Ward II residents interested in filling the vacancy have until May 13 to submit a letter of interest to the city clerk. To qualify, candidates must be 18 years of age, a resident of Berlin for at least a year, and a resident of the ward. Mayor Paul Grenier said the May 16 work session will be devoted to interviewing candidates and selecting a replacement. The person appointed to fill the vacancy will serve only through the next election when the seat will be up for grabs. In the see DANDERSON page 5

Sewer rate, snakes, road tolls on council agenda BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN – The city council approved a sewer rate, passed a revised road toll resolution, and discussed exotic snakes in city parks at Monday’s council meeting. City Manager Patrick MacQueen recommended holding the sewer rate at $7.99

per hundred cubic feet for the third year in a row. He reviewed the sewer fund budget with the council. The sewer fund operates as a separate enterprise fund, offset by its own revenues and fees. It is not part of the city’s operating budget and has no impact on property taxes. see COUNCIL page 7

School district begins process of planning future construction BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN— The Berlin School System is set to begin a process that would help it plan for future construction projects in the district. The Berlin Board of Education Thursday agreed to support the district putting out a request for qualifications that would help it connect with engineering firms interested in helping develop the district’s future construction projects. Business Administrator Bryan Lamirande said this would put the district in a position so when grant funds become available for projects the school is more prepared. At this point, there’s no money needed to move forward with this plan, said Lamirande. He added the see PLANNING page 6

Selectmen make minor revision to proposed noise ordinance BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

Over the weekend, workers installed the translucent canopy that covers half of the new park developed as part of the Bickford Place project. Steel fretwork has been installed on the front of the former Rite Aid building to make the building more appealing for retail and commercial space. The park will include a foundation, benches and some landscaping. When completed, it will provide a place for civic events and ceremonies. While the building, which was donated to the city, is available for sale or lease, the park will remain the property of the city. A ribbon cutting ceremony is planned for the annual Drive in the Fifties event. The project has been undertaken by the Berlin Industrial Development and Park Authority.

GORHAM— The Gorham Board of Selectmen Monday opted to make two small revisions to the proposed noise ordinance. After reviewing the proposed ordinance during a work session, the board decided to alter the timeframe for operating maintenance equipment and add birds to the portion addressing noisy animals. The board didn’t make any other changes to the proposed ordinance besides those two pieces. The board is set to vote on the noise ordinance at its meeting on May 9. Gorham residents voted 74- 70 to recommend that the board enact a noise ordinance at the annual town see SELECTMEN page 6

Ownership of TV sets falls in U.S. (NY Times) — For the first time in 20 years, the number of homes in the United States with television sets has dropped. Discarded analog television sets in Florida. Analog was rendered obsolete in the switch to digital broadcasting in 2009. The Nielsen Company, which takes TV set ownership into account when it produces ratings, will tell television networks and advertisers on Tuesday that 96.7 percent of American households now own sets, down from 98.9 percent previously. There are two reasons for the decline, according to Nielsen. One is poverty: some low-income households no longer own TV sets, most likely because they cannot afford new digital sets and antennas. The other is technological wizardry: young people who have grown up with laptops in their hands instead of remote controls are opting not to buy TV sets when they graduate from college or enter the work force, at least not at first. Instead, they are subsisting on a diet of television shows and movies from the Internet. That second reason is prompting Nielsen to think about a redefinition of the term “television household” to include Internet video viewers.

(NY Times) — White House officials on Tuesday sought to correct the official account of the raid in Pakistan that ended in the killing of Osama bin Laden, saying that the Qaeda leader was not armed and that his wife was not killed. The new Defense Department narrative released by the White House, and read at a White House news briefing on Tuesday, said that one of Bin

Laden’s wives was shot in the leg as she charged members of the commando team on the third floor of the compound. “In the room with Bin Laden, a woman – Bin Laden’s wife – rushed the U.S. assaulter and was shot in the leg but not killed,” the brief statement said. “Bin Laden was then shot and killed. He was not armed.” Jay Carney, the White House press secretary, read the narra-

tive in an attempt to correct statements by administration officials who had suggested Bin Laden was armed during the raid. Under questioning, Mr. Carney said that the White House stood by its claim on Monday that Bin Laden had resisted capture, but said that “resistance does not require a firearm.” Mr. Carney said that the new narrative was the result of “fresh” information.

River level drops after blast at levee EAST PRAIRIE, Mo. (NY Times) — Last-ditch efforts to prevent a small Illinois town from flooding appeared to be working Tuesday morning, hours after the Army Corps of Engineers used explosives to tear open a protective levee. While the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, fed by punishing rains, have increasingly posed threats to nearby communities, the water level of the Ohio River in Cairo, Ill., was at 61.72 feet before the levee was breached late Monday night. By 6 a.m. Tuesday, it had fallen to 60.5 feet. For now, at least, Cairo

appears to be safe. As the flood protection systems that safeguard countless communities groaned under the pressure of rising rivers, federal officials Monday night executed a fiercely debated plan to destroy a part of the levee near Cairo that holds back water near where the Ohio pours into the Mississippi. The blast sent an estimated 550,000 cubic feet of water a second across 130,000 acres of farmland, also inundating about 90 homes near this southeast Missouri town, known as the spillway.

Rule would make cutting Medicaid payments to providers difficult

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — In a new effort to increase access to health care for poor people, the Obama administration is proposing a rule that would make it much more difficult for states to cut Medicaid payments to doctors and hospitals. The rule could also put pressure on some states to increase Medicaid payment rates, which are typically lower than what Medicare and commercial insurance pay. Federal officials said Monday that the rule was needed to fulfill the promise of federal law, which says Medicaid recipients should have access to health care at least to the same extent as the general population. “We have a responsibility to ensure sufficient beneficiary access to covered services,” the administration said in issuing the proposal, to be published Friday in the Federal Register. In many parts of the country, Medicaid recipients have difficulty finding doctors who will take them because Medicaid payment rates are so low.

Hybrid racecars compete at NHMS LOUDON — More than 20 teams from colleges in the United States, Canada and Sweden are at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this week as part of the annual Formula Hybrid International Competition. The teams spend the entire school year building a racecar that runs partly on fossil fuels, such as gas or diesel, but also on an electric motor. The students design, build and even get sponsors for their vehicles. They are judged on a variety of factors that

include a 22-kilometer endurance race at the end of the competition. Representatives from major auto manufacturers and other high-tech companies are on hand. Organizers said the goal is for the students to show what they can do for these potential employers. The competition is organized by the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. This is the fifth year the event has been held. —Courtesy of WMUR

Four accused of letting air out of buses’ tires CONCORD — Police in Concord said four teenagers were responsible for letting the air out of the tires of 27 school buses last month. The tires were deflated on April 22, forcing the Merrimack Valley School District to cancel classes

for the day. Police said a specialized tool was used to deflate the tires, and aside from the time and effort it took to inflate the tires, no other damage was reported. Michael Campbell, 17, of Salisbury; Ryan LaRoche, 17, of

Loudon; Zachary Blanchette, 18, of Webster; and James Capps, 19, of Concord, were charged with criminal mischief and criminal trespass. The four are scheduled to be arraigned on June 2. —Courtesy of WMUR

Community helps soup kitchen destroyed by fire CONCORD — The Friendly Kitchen helps tens of thousands of hungry people in the Concord area get hot meals every year, and now the community is helping it. The nonprofit organization’s building was severely damaged by fire Saturday. The kitchen and all its contents were destroyed. But the Friendly Kitchen hardly missed a beat, thanks to some generous donations and the help of a local church. Meals are still being served just around the corner at the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, mostly with donated food and volunteers from other organizations. The Friendly Kitchen serves lunch and dinner during the week and breakfast and dinner on weekends. For Tuesday’s lunch, soup and sandwiches from local businesses were served. The kitchen averages about 35 people for each lunch and 75 people for dinner. Friendly Kitchen director Jennifer Lombardo said the nonprofit will be operating at the church until it either rebuilds the facility or finds another place. “Just because we had a fire doesn’t mean people stop being hungry,” said Lombardo. Church officials said the soup kitchen can remain there for as long as it needs to. Lombardo said large and small donations have helped out. A man who used to eat at the kitchen donated $3, while a private donor gave $10,000. Since Saturday, the organization has raised $25,000. “It’s very heartwarming,” Lombardo said. “It’s amazing. The phone doesn’t stop ringing off the hook. People are just giving like you wouldn’t believe.” For information on how to help, go to The Friendly Kitchen’s website. —Courtesy of WMUR

Man found hanging from Interstate 93 overpass LONDONDERRY — A man hanged himself from the Interstate 93 overpass on Stonehenge Road Monday morning, police said. Police are withholding the name of the man, pending further investigation but said no foul play was involved. Authorities were initially called at 5:12 a.m. Monday about an individual on one of the Interstate 93 bridges. One caller identified the overpass at Exit 5 while a second caller said it was the Stonehenge Road overpass, which is south of Exit 5. Officer Keith Lee arrived at the Stonehenge Road overpass within a few minutes of the call and discovered the body of a man who appeared to have committed suicide by hanging himself from the overpass, police said. An automobile registered to the man was found on the north side of Stonehenge Road, just west of the overpass. —Courtesy of The Union Leader

The $0.05 gas tax gimmick To the editor: Owing to a great deal of pressure and criticism, the Republicans in the State House have, at the very last minute, in the hopes of gaining favoritism with the electorate, introduced an amendment to Senate Bill 78 (relative to motor vehicle registration fees which prematurely reduces the $30 registration surcharge) and opens a $6.6 millions gap in the current budget. The amendment would temporarily reduce the state gas tax by 5 cents, which is speculative in nature in that it would actually trickle down to the consumer for what may be merely an average of $3 per month. The reduction, upon passage, would only be for the months of May and June. Can the citizens of New Hampshire actually afford the loss of an additional $6.6 million for the Department of Transportation (DOT)? In addition to having less money for plowing and salting of state roads this coming winter, DOT will have less funds for road and bridge repairs. In 2000, roughly 650 miles of state roads required major work. Currently, as of 2010, roughly 1,550 miles are in critical conditions. The situation for red-listed bridges is far worse.

If the Republicans are set on attracting tourists, making our roads less safe not only for tourists but our citizens as well, by cutting revenues to DOT is not the most prudent way in which to operate. New Hampshire Republicans proclaim their conservatism and their fiscal restraint. However, the budget the Republicans are about to pass is anything but restrained, it is radical. It is not conservative but destructive. The cuts in the next state budget threaten not only the safety net that governments must provide for the disadvantaged, but it also denies the regulatory function of government. When defending the five cent reduction in the gas tax, last Wednesday, April 27, on the floor of the House, Representative D.J. Bettencourt (Salem), the Majority Leader, responded: “ But I’ll tell you who doesn’t find this to be a gimmick. Residents of Massachusetts!” Annexing portions of the Bay State into NH districts had not been made part of any redistricting plan for which the Democrats have been made aware. Rep. Robert L.

Obama Nails Osama

When the news broke late on Sunday night that our guys had finally run down Osama bin Laden and killed him, we all felt like celebrating. It was President Barack Obama, whose thoughtful, well modulated speech announcing the victory, who said it best. Our victory, although it had come nearly 10 years after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the plane crash in Pennsylvania, had evened the score. And it had been a clean, well run affair. Once bin Laden had been located and enough information had been gathered to totally confirm his location and circumstances, a small force, said to number about forty, went in, did the job it had been assigned to do, and got out unscathed. They brought out the body and unceremoniously buried it at sea. There will be no mourning place to gather, erect a memorial, and honor the man in the future, There will be, however, an opportunity to learn more about the people who successfully pulled off the strike. It certainly speaks to their skill and competency. There was no hint of the deed before Obama’s announcement. In a world in which maintaining secrecy is nearly impossible, this fact speaks to a tremendous effort. In fact, up until mere minutes before the President appeared on TV, the story had not broken. It will take time for the details of the successful foray to emerge, but each person will be honored for

their skill and perseverance in time. Of course, the men who will rightfully be honored the most will be Leon Panetta, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency who led the plan an execution of the operation and President Obama who was informed of it and gave the OK to go ahead and get it done. In Panetta’s case it culminates his career as CIA director with a triumph. He has just been elevated to Secretary of Defense, a job he will assume in September when Robert Gates, the current secretary, retires. For President Obama, the dearth of Osama bin Laden fulfills a promise he made while a presidential candidate in 2008 to hunt him down and bring him to justice. It also quiets the criticism aimed at him for not doing enough to get the job dome. While speaking modestly about the event, it was clear that he was tremendously satisfied to complete the task as he had promised. He was also cautious about making any predictions about the future of al Qaeda, bin Laden’s terror organization. He noted that over the years al Qaeda had changed and spread to other countries. What was clear was opposition to it would continue and our guard would remain up high. What is also clear, however, is that bringing down bin Laden was an important blow and a possible game changer. No matter what may happen in the future, the game has changed in our favor.

Cellar Holes If you have ever spent any time wandering the hinterlands of New England it is likely you have come across a cellar hole or two. This is especially so as spring arrives when in the wake of the retreating snows, fresh new places appear. These, along with mysterious perfect stone walls lost in the midst of old growth forests, offer us a glimpse into the long ago lives of the people who lived in those homes; the farmers, now ghosts, who painstakingly built those walls. There is something at once romantic, and also sad, about these monuments to another time. People just like us once occupied these spaces, and now they are gone. Perhaps my favorite pastime is wandering the woods without purpose in mind and with the dogs snuffling about as they do in search of new and interesting smells. Sometimes we walk along forest roads, and other times we find our own path among the trees. It is on these quiet afternoons that it is easy to become curious, and reflective, about the histories that have come and gone. It strikes me as poignant, somehow, that once upon a time someone, or more than likely some family, sought to make a new life in these woods. In life, no one ever begins some new adventure such as homesteading in the forest, with the idea that it might not work out. Rather, we take a leap of faith and invest our life’s savings in the pursuit of a dream. In life, many hopeful beginnings do not end well, and yet we resolutely continue to try. The human spirit for possibility is, it seems, vast and deep; and infinitely renewable. These days similar signs of dashed hopes appear in more visible places, too. There are far

too many for-sale signs, going-out-of-business notices, and otherwise newly empty and desolate places where people once roamed. These spaces have a way of sneaking up and challenging our sense of permanence. A few years ago I had the occasion to view several properties for sale. In each instance there was an unspoken story, sometimes visible and quite often sad, behind the cold hearth and now-empty rooms. No one ever imagines when a house becomes a home that it will one day revert back to emptiness again. That the smells of fresh paint and wood, along with the sense of anticipation, might one day fade. The simple idea of such an ending is too cruel for those of us who still believe in the hard-as-granite possibility of such things. At times I still miss the first home my family owned because that was the place where the seeds were planted and the foundations were laid; our loss of place becoming an unintended consequence of another kind of ending. It is the same for a small business, restaurants most especially, as it is almost certain that the owners sank a lifetime of hopes and dreams into what is now become a dark and empty space. Not unlike those long ago New England homesteaders, there must have been a sense of possibility in the anticipation and planning, and in early days of opening the doors. But life is unbearably fickle, and usually long; and so it is that nothing lasts forever. Even long established businesses seem to have their life cycles. We have learned the hard way that longevity is no guarantee of a sustainable see CELLAR HOLES page 5

Proposed budget cuts equal loss to water quality, economy To the editor: A sorry result of the two-year budget recently passed by the New Hampshire House, and other Department of Environmental Services program reductions, is the elimination of five water quality management and monitoring programs: the Freshwater Beach Inspection Program, Lakes & Rivers Management Programs, and the Volunteer Lake and River Assessment Programs. Eliminating these water programs has severe ramifications by 1) abdicating state responsibility for public health and safety and downshifting costs to towns; 2) increasing economic and job losses in the private sector; and 3) dismantling volunteer programs that provide stewardship and water quality monitoring of NH’s waters. At risk are 1,000 lakes and ponds and over 12,000 miles of rivers and streams-- some of New Hampshire’s greatest economic assets that contribute to quality of life and attract businesses. Studies show that 9,000 to 15,000 full- and part-time jobs support boating, fishing, and swimming in New Hampshire and generate over $300 million in annual household income, and about $1.2 billion in annual total sales. The state’s waterfront owners annually pay approximately $247 million in property taxes, and water quality is a primary factor in property valuation. How can towns afford the State’s inattention to water quality? Who will now test 158 beaches for fecal bacteria and cyanobacteria? The House budget effectively says, “No one.” This testing is crucial to public health and safety. Municipalities will have to take up the slack - if they can. Currently, DES staff coordinates over 700 water quality sampling volunteers, who, in 2010, sampled 2,024 miles of rivers and over 300 lakes. This comprised 40% of the WHY from page 4

water quality data used in required US EPA Clean Water Act reporting. NH’s River and Lake Management Advisory Committees, all volunteer and including representation from industry, hydroelectric, agriculture, historic, water supply, academia, state government, and conservation interests work with NH DES staff to collaboratively seek solutions to the growing complexity of water issues. Volunteer efforts at this scale need underlying staff to function -- it does not just happen for free. The Housepassed budget zeroes out funding for these programs and the DES staff supporting them. When created in 1987, the NH DES Biology program had six biologists conducting lake and river water quality management and monitoring. The House budget reduces this to two biologists. Gone entirely are the Lakes and Rivers Management Protection Program staff and volunteer committee capacity to protect our state’s drinking water supplies, water quality, recreational opportunities, tourist attractions, fisheries, and wildlife habitat. We recognize that NH faces difficult budget choices. But New Hampshire is growing fast, compounding the challenges of managing water user conflicts and maintaining quality water assets. Would a company with billion dollar assets put zero dollars into protecting them? While the Governor’s proposed budget severely reduces staff and funds these programs at a bare $350,000, at least it keeps the programs operational. Our Committees, representing a diverse spectrum of interests, ask the Senate to retain these programs in the NH DES budget and at a minimum support them at the Governor’s proposed funding level.

meetings. So far, the only change proposed to the ordinance is moving the timeframe for construction to 9 p.m.- 6 a.m. from 7 p.m.- 6 a.m. This recommendation was made during the town meeting. The selectmen agreed to make that change to the ordinance. Later in the ordinance, Frost pointed out that it excludes operating any machinery while engaged in snow removal from being a violation. She added it should offset so people understand it’s exempted under the ordinance. The other change made was to include bird to the paragraph that references noisy animals. Police Chief PJ Cyr raised the question whether having the animal piece in the noise ordinance was redundant since the town already has existing means to deal with noisy dogs. Selectman Terry Oliver said he was concerned that if the town relied solely on its existing dog ordinance to deal with noise issues, people with loud birds might argue that it’s not technically an animal. He added he wants to make sure the language is clear and enforceable. Cyr agreed with the change. PLANNING from page one

Students from the Berlin High School Destination Imagination tea perform their sketch from the state and regional competition for the Berlin Board of Education Thursday night. This year, the team’s basis for the sketch was the Triple Take Road Show, during which the group needed to tell one story three different ways in eight minutes. The B.H.S. team opted to re-tell “Little Red Riding Hood.” The B.H.S. team won the coveted Da Vinci Award for exception creativity at the regional competition. The school board also got a chance to see performances from two other Destination Imagination Teams. (CRAIG LYONS PHOTO)

COUNCIL VACANCY WARD 2 The Berlin City Council is accepting letters of interest from Ward 2 residents wishing to fill the unexpired term of Councilor Robert Danderson for a term to expire January 2012. Interested individuals must be 18 years old, a resident of Berlin for one year and a registered Ward 2 voter. Letters of interest will be accepted until May 13, 2011 and interviews will be conducted Monday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Executive Chambers. Please mail letters to: Mayor & City Council, 168 Main Street, Berlin, NH 03570.

next phase would happen when money comes available. Lamirande said this could help the district be better prepared if funding is found for some of it’s future construction plans, which include an access road, a bus garage and a biomass boiler. The starting point is the request for qualifications, said Laminrande, and then if funds are found the district can then tell an engineering firm to draw up blueprints. He added if money is found to move

Earlier during the work session, Cyr and the Board discussed the necessity of the first subparagraph in the ordinance. The subparagraph includes the operation or maintenance of any device, instrument, vehicle, or machinery that causes discomfort of annoyance or endangers the comfort, repose, health, peace or safety of residents in the area, according to the proposed ordinance. Cyr said it’s potentially a redundancy since state law exists that deals with disorderly conduct. Selectman David Graham said he thinks having that piece in the ordinance strengthens the officers’ abilities to enforce it. He added he feels it reinforces the state law. Frost said maybe it’s better to leave the language in the ordinance since there could be situations where noise levels don’t reach the level to violate the disorderly conduct law, but can be considered a violation of the noise ordinance. Cyr said he didn’t have a problem with leaving it in the ordinance but wanted to raise the question since it was brought up during the town meeting. He added he does see how it could help deal with noise levels that don’t quite meet the disorderly conduct standards. past the blueprint phase, the district can then keep moving its way through the construction process for a project. Another important aspect of this approach to construction, said Lamirande, is that all the projects should be considered at the same time. He added this means if the access road if the first project to move, the plans should consider future additions of the bus garage and biomass boiler. “Each phase should be a value added,” said Lamirande.

COUNCIL from page one

MacQueen noted that projections show the average homeowner in Berlin will pay $575 for sewer in 2011, close to the $554 for an average homeowner in the state. Councilor Lucie Remillard raised concerns about the road toll resolution on Monday’s agenda for passage. At the urging of City Clerk Debra Patrick, last month the council agreed to consider a resolution setting some rules for the volunteer road tolls at Glen Avenue Park used as fundraisers by many local organizations. Remillard said she had an opportunity to talk to Steve Tardiff of IGA Foodliner and he said the barricade placed on the Pleasant Street side of the park needs to be moved towards the intersection to avoid interfering with traffic coming in and out of the IGA. Remillard said she also observed kids moving out beyond the barricades last week and waving down traffic and said she remains concerned about liability issues. She suggested the council work out the issues before taking the resolution off the table. Councilor Tom McCue said he would like to see the council pass the resolution so it is in place as the season for road tolls gets underway and then fine-tune it to address issues that come up. Councilor Roland Theberge recommended the city limit the road tolls to the Glen Avenue side of the park instead of allowing road tolls on both sides of the park. He said that would be safer because there would be no problem with traffic turning in and out of IGA. Public Works Director Mike Perreault said his department could mark with paint the site for the barricades. The resolution requires all participants to remain behind a barricade while soliciting donations. The new resolution, which the council passed with the new stipulations, limits the number of road tolls to one per week. Applicants must be non-profit organizations with a direct connection to Berlin. The city clerk remains in charge of issuing road toll permits and a new application form has been developed. The council also decided to add a provision that all road tolls must be supervised by an adult.

Councilor Diana Nelson said she received two complaints about people bringing their exotic snakes into city parks. In the cases reported to her, two people were walking in the park with large snakes wrapped around them. Nelson said one parent was nervous and would not let her children play in the park with the snakes present. The children were described as fearful of the snakes. Nelson noted dogs are not allowed in city parks and said she thinks snakes and exotic pets should be banned as well. “Parks are designed for kids to play,” she said. Remillard said she thinks the issue is broader than just city parks. She said she has seen people with snakes walking on the street and at city events. Mayor Paul Grenier suggested consulting with the police department for recommendations. In other businesses: • The council authorized Fire Chief Randall Trull to go forward with a 155-B order against Berlin Real Estate Development Corp. for its building at 49 Gilbert Street. The order requires the owner to provide the city with a plan to demolish the building, remove the debris, and fill in any cellar holes within 20 days and to have the work completed within 60 days. If the owner fails to comply, the city can act to demolish the building and take a lien out against the property and any other property the owner holds in the state. The property is on the city’s tax deed list. Grenier said the city needs to move forward with a 155-B order against 702 Glen Avenue, which is owned by Coos County Realty Corporation. • Gregg Marrer resigned from the zoning board because of a work conflict and Ronald Cote said he did not want to be re-appointed to another term. With the earlier resignation of chairman Harold Bigelow, the board is down three members. The council approved the appointment of alternate member Greg Estrella to a regular seat. The city is looking for two more regular members and people willing to serve as alternates. • Gerald Dumoulin was appointed to another term on the Berlin Industrial Development and Park Authority.

Lifetime Income: A Great Mother’s Day Gift

Mother’s Day will soon be here. If you’re a mother, you will (hopefully) receive thoughtful cards and gifts. But there’s one present you may eventually want to give yourself, and it’s a gift that truly does keep on giving: a strategy for your retirement. Of course, it’s important for everyone to build adequate financial resources for retirement — but the challenge is even greater for women. Largely due to family responsibilities, women spend, on average, 12 years less in the workforce than men, according to the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement. Less time in the workforce equates to lost earnings, missed promotions, smaller and fewer raises and reduced retirement plan benefits. In fact, men have, on average, about $91,000 in Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), including all IRA types and the amounts rolled over from other retirement accounts into IRAs, compared to just $51,000 for women, according to a recent report issued by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Whether you’re married, divorced, widowed or single, you’ll want to build financial resources of you r own and be prepared to manage your finances during your retirement years. You’ll be helping yourself, and, by becoming financially independent, you’ll also avoid the possibility of depending on your grown children for support. To help ensure a financially secure retirement, consider these ideas: •Fully fund your IRA each year. As the numbers above show, women are way behind men when it comes to funding their IRAs. And IRAs, with their tax advantages, are great retirement-savings vehicles. A traditional IRA have the potential to grow on a tax-deferred basis, while Roth IRAs have the potential to grow tax-free, provided you’ve had your account at least five years and you don’t start taking withdrawals until you’re 59-1/2. So make it a priority to “max out” on your IRA each year. In 2011, you can put in up to $5,000 to a traditional or Roth IRA, or $6,000 if you’re 50 or older. •Boost your 401(k) contributions. Put in as much as you can afford to your 401(k) or other employersponsored retirement plan. At the very least, contribute enough to earn your employer’s match, if one is offered. (In 2011, you can put in up to $16,500, or $22,000 if you’re 50 or older.) Your earnings have the opportunity to grow tax-deferred and you have a range of investment options, so your 401(k) or other retirement plan can be an effective, flexible way to put money away for the future. •Invest in an annuity. If you’ve reached the contribution limits of your IRA and 401(k), you may want to consider purchasing an annuity, which can be structured to provide you with regular payments for the rest of your life. And this lifetime income source is especially important to women, who, at age 65, can expect to live, on average, almost 20 more years, compared to slightly over 17 for men of the same age, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As a mother, you willingly spend a great deal of time and effort on your children. But it’s important to also think about yourself and your future, so review your strategy for retirement with your financial advisor, and take the actions needed to help make sure you can enjoy all the Mother’s Days of your life in the comfort you deserve.

For All That You Have Given Me For all that you have given me, I can return but love. For you Bound up the wounds I did not see And gave me hopes and passions new. I can return but love for you, Whose unmoved faith my heart did move, And gave me hopes and passions new, And loved me till I turned to love.

Remember Mom!

Whose unmoved faith did my heart move? The mother of my heart, not blood, Who loved me till I turned to love. And I became the soul I would. The mother of my heart, not blood, Bound up the wounds I did not see. And I became the soul I would For all that you have given me.

Grandmothers are mothers who are grand, Restoring the sense that our most precious things Are those that do not change much over time. No love of childhood is more sublime, Demanding little, giving on demand, More inclined than most to grant the wings On which we fly off to enchanted lands. Though grandmothers must serve as second mothers, Helping out with young and restless hearts, Each has all the patience wisdom brings, Remembering our passions more than others, Soothing us with old and well-honed arts.

Dittmeyer funeral: ‘The healing will not be miraculous or quick’ BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

NAPLES, Maine — Flags in front of the Krista Dittmeyer’s former high school waved at half mast on Monday as friends and family filed into the gym for her funeral. Her body lay in a closed casket. Cameras weren't allowed, but reporters sat beside mourners in the bleachers. More than 300 people filled the Lakes Region High School gym, the gym where Dittmeyer played basketball just a few years ago. “We are broken-hearted, confused,” the Rev. Donald Mayberry said, who performed the service. “We will not gloss over the pain. We are mourning the loss of a young daughter, the loss of a sister. Our pain and our suffering, our grief and sorrow and loss are meant to be shared.” The search for Dittmeyer, 20, began last Saturday after her car was found running with her 14-month-old daughter inside. The child was uninjured, but there was no sign of Dittmeyer. Her body was discovered a few days later in a small pond at the base of Cranmore ski

area after four days of searching by local, state and federal investigators. Her autopsy results have not been released — the medical examiner is waiting for the toxicology report to come back — but the case is being treated as a criminal investigation. The state Attorney General’s office took the case over from the Conway Police Department

No arrests have been made, but “the police remain actively involved in this investigation,” senior assistant attorney general Jane Young said on Tuesday. She was unwilling to comment about the case beyond that, she said, in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation. Local authorities have said the same thing, directing all comment to the Attorney General’s office. Dittmeyer’s family, meanwhile, has been left with questions. “Sadly the healing will not

be miraculous or quick,” Mayberry said. “Who would have thought one little lady could have touched so many hearts,” Kayla Dittmeyer, Krista’s older sister, said through tears. She thanked everyone for coming out in solidarity with her and her family. “This is all we really need: love and support.” Her father, Larry Shackley Jr., sat in the first row wiping away tears as Kalya gave advice to everyone else in the room. “Never lie about where you’re going, what you’re doing,” she said. “One little thing can change your life.” “Rest in peace, little sis,” she said, “my angel forever and always.” Several of Dittmeyer’s friends also spoke, sharing remembrances of a strongwilled loyal woman, a theme echoed throughout the ceremony. “Life with Krista was never dull,” Mayberry said. “She never had an unexpressed thought.” At the end of the ceremony, pallbearers took the casket out a side door. The family followed while news photographers waited outside.

Muriel J Binette 08-20-39 – 5-5-10

As we look back As we look back over time We find ourselves wondering.... Did we remember to thank you enough, For all you have done for us? For all the times you were by our sides To help and support us... To celebrate our successes To understand our problems And to accept our defeats? Or for teaching us by your example, The value of hard work, good judgement, Courage and integrity? We wonder if we ever thanked you For the sacrifices you made. To let us have the very best? And for the simple things. Like laughter, smiles and times we shared? If we have forgotten to show our Gratitude enough for all the things you did, We’re thanking you now. And we are hoping you knew all along, How much you meant to all of us. No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why! With Loving Memories Your Husband Ray & your Children.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis respondence. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You stay busy, taking action because you enjoy the feeling of being in motion. This is more than a whirlwind of activity. You are dancing with life, and the two of you make a dashing duo. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll do your best, not because you’re trying to make someone like you or because it’s been suggested that it’s what you should do. You’ll do your best because it’s who you are -- a winner. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Practice will make you better. You’ll figure out how to best focus your efforts. It requires humility, honesty and a lack of ego to see the results you’re getting and determine what needs improving. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Galileo was arrested for saying the Earth orbits around the sun. One era’s dangerous radical is another era’s harmless eccentric. You have some of your own potentially incendiary ideas and must be careful whom you tell. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your responsibilities will be many. Handling them all depends on your level of organization. Make a list and check it twice. Otherwise, something is sure to fall through the cracks. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 4). You have big plans for this year, and yet you are still able to live in the moment -- it’s the secret to your perpetual youth. Your visual sense is brilliant, and you put your style stamp on everything in your personal environment, from your clothing to your cooking and your home, inside and out. You share a special bond with Libra and Aquarius people. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 7, 39, 26 and 4.

Cul de Sac

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re sending out all the right signals, and you’ll soon meet your perfect match for business and/or pleasure. Keep your people skills tuned so you can be ready to connect. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Contributions that were taken for granted will now be noticed. You’ll be celebrated. Your usual graciousness will be appreciated. And if you do something extra, your loved ones will be beside themselves. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be in another one of your playful moods. Your affectionate joking will be well received as long as you keep it light and steer clear of truly sensitive triggers. You’ll invigorate a relationship with humor. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your work will be a major source of selfesteem. You don’t mind knocking yourself out to do a good job today, because in the end, you know it will matter. It will be nice to hear the pleased comments. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be asked to do something you just don’t understand. You need to know the purpose and the plan; otherwise, you have a hard time following through. So ask more questions. Don’t act until you “get it.” VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Wishing won’t make it so. It’s a start, though -- an indicator of what goals you might be willing to put effort behind. For extra luck, make a declaration to Capricorn or Taurus about what you’ll do. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be negotiating terms of intimacy. You’ll be deciding whether to hug or shake hands and putting thought into the salutations at the beginning and end of every cor-

FREE ADVICE KIT FOR MOMS IS CHOCK-FULL OF HELPFUL TIPS

DEAR ABBY: As children come to their mothers to mend their scraped knees and broken hearts, readers in turn come to you for advice that can mend fractured relationships and save lives. Knowing how much mothers everywhere value your wisdom, the Food and Drug Administration’s Office of Women’s Health and the Federal Citizen Information Center have created the Healthy Moms Advice Kit for your readers. It’s filled with practical tips on topics such as hay fever, recognizing and conquering depression, keeping food safe, discovering the real differences between name brand and generic drugs and -- every mom’s dream -- learning the secrets of getting a good night’s sleep. Abby, thanks for letting your readers know about the free Healthy Moms Advice Kit, and for being someone we always know we can trust to steer us to the answers we need. -- MARSHA HENDERSON, FDA ASSISTANT COMMISSIONER FOR WOMEN’S HEALTH (ACTING) DEAR MARSHA: I’m pleased to help you educate readers on these important topics. Every year when I review the advance copies of your kits, I learn something new -- which is why I know they will be helpful to others. Folks, this year’s free smorgasbord of information contains helpful advice on such topics as how to avoid getting sick from restaurant take-out foods, medications and products to avoid during pregnancy, and an enlightening fact sheet on HPV (human papillomavirus), a sexually transmitted disease that, left untreated, can lead to cervical cancer. Did you know

that vaccination with Gardasil can help prevent four types of HPV? I didn’t. And no, you CAN’T get HPV from the vaccine. Because all the information in these kits has been compiled by the government at taxpayer expense, it’s offered at no cost to you. However, quantities are limited, so don’t wait. Order now. To receive the kits in printed form, send your name and address to Healthy Moms Advice Kit, Pueblo, CO 81009, go online to Publications.USA.gov, or call (888) 8-PUEBLO (that’s (888) 878-3256) weekdays 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern time. You can also read the publications online in PDF format, download them to your computer and print them. DEAR ABBY: I had an affair a few years ago that lasted a lot longer than it should have. It ended when my lover, “John,” died unexpectedly. The kicker is I was -- and still am -- married. For the last two years I had wanted to end the relationship, but I couldn’t find the courage to do it on my own. My question is, should I feel guilty for feeling glad that John is dead? I’m glad the affair is finally over, but I feel guilty that death is what ended it and that I didn’t have the courage to end it myself. -- CONFLICTED IN SANTA ROSA DEAR CONFLICTED: I don’t think you’re feeling “glad” as much as you’re relieved that John is finally out of your life -- even if it was feet first. As to your guilt about not ending the affair, that’s something between you, your religious adviser and your higher power. You’ll have to work it out with one of them, and I’m advising you to start now.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860

GORHAM -- Junior Curtis Arsenault held the Gorham offense to just one run, helping the Berlin boy’s baseball team to a hard fought 3-1 victory over the Huskies in Gorham Monday. The loss was the first of the year season for Gorham. It was the classic pitchers’ duel, with Mountie ace, Curtis Arsenault, on the hill for Berlin, and the Huskies countering with senior Doug Willey. Willey was tough on the Berlin batters, setting down nine Mounties on strikes, allowing four hits, and no free passes in five innings of work. Arsenault was almost as equally tough, going the distance for Berlin allowing one run on five hits, nine k’s, walking one, and hitting two batters. The score was dead-locked at 0-0, with Gorham coming to bat in the bottom of the fifth inning. Cody Gauthier got things started by being credited with a base hit on a cather’s interference call. Sophomore Hunter Lambertson came in to pinch run for Gauthier and was sacrificed to second base by teammate Sam Jensen. Freshman Tyler Sanschagrin hit a ball that appeared to be headed for the outfield. The hard hit grounder went high into the air off of the lip of the infield grass and was gathered in by short stop Bryar King. King got Sanschagrin at first base for the second out of the inning, moving Lambertson to third

base. Senior lead-off hitter Brandon Sanschagrin fell behind Arsenault with two quick strikes. The Gorham captain responded by singling sharply to the outfield to plate Lambertson, giving the Huskies a 1-0 advantage. Berlin responded with three runs of their own in the top of the sixth inning off of lefty reliever Gauthier. Singles by Ryan Fortin and Arsenault and then an intentional walk to King, loaded the bases for the Mounties with no one out. Senior Eric Godin hit a sacrifice fly to tie the game at 1-1. A stolen base by Arsenault put the Berlin runners at second and third base. On the next pitch, Arsenault scored on a pass ball and when Mountie junior Zach Bacon singled to plate King, Berlin was up 3-1. Arsenault got out of hot water in the bottom of the sixth inning. Arsenault utilized a key strike out with Huskies at second and third base, denying the Gorham boys a chance to get back in the game. Berlin went 1,2,3 in the top of the seventh inning. Arsenault set down the first two Gorham hitters on strike outs in the bottom of the seventh. Gorham’s Brandon Sanschagrin clouted a long double to deep center field, to keep Gorham’s hopes alive. However, red hot Huskie hitter, Pat Pike, stroked a hard hit grounder, that Berlin third baseman Elijah Hawkins ranged to his left and grabbed onto. Hawkins threw a strike to first base

getting the speedy Pike and ending the game 3-1 for Berlin. Sanschagrin and Pike had two hits for the Huskies, while Arsenault was a repeat hit getter for the visiting Mountaineers. Berlin’s next game will be against White Mountain Regional on Wednesday. The Huskies will host Littleton

on Tuesday, Woodsville on Wednesday, and travel to undefeated Colebrook on Thursday. BHS 0 0 0 0 0 3 0 3-7-1 GHS 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1-5-1 Pitching: GHS- Willey, Gauthier (6), and T Sanschagrin, BHS- Arsenault and Donaldson, WP- Arsenault, LPGauthier.
