Both sides blame other in Francoeur pleads collapse of biomass project guilty to negligent

Berlin’s Annual Sidewalk

SALE! STARTS TODAY

BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- More than a week has passed since Cate Street Capital announced its plans for a 75-megawatt biomass plant in Berlin were dead. No new negotiations have been scheduled between Cate Street Capital and the six small biomass plants that have challenged the 20-year power purchase agreement between

Cate Street Capital and Public Service of N.H. And both sides are blaming the other for the breakdown. The two parties admit they were close to an agreement that would see the wood-fired Independent Power Producers withdraw their state Supreme Court appeal. A spokesman for the IPPs said they believe there is an opportunity for both see COLLAPSE page 9

New developer interested in Berlin BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- With the future of the Berlin Station biomass plant in doubt, another developer is interested in Berlin for a plant that would convert biomass into ultra-clean synthetic fuel as well as produce electricity and pro-

cess heat. William Fortune of Industrial Consultants Inc., of Lee, said unlike a convention biomass plant is which is about 35 percent efficient, his proposed plant would be 85 percent efficient. The plant would use a gasification

LANCASTER — A Berlin woman will not go to jail, but is prohibited from ever driving again after pleading guilty last week to a charge she negligently caused the death of a Hillsborough man in a motor vehicle crash. Margaret Francoeur, 47, of Berlin, was traveling on Route 115 in Twin Mountain on Nov. 4, 2009, when her 2002 Dodge van crossed the center line and struck a red pickup truck driven by Roger Marcoullier, 53, of Hillsborough. Both were injured in the head-on collision and Marcoullier later died from his injuries. Francoeur pleaded guilty to the negligent homicide charge in Coos Superior Court on July 5, in front of Judge Peter Bornstein. She was sentenced to one to five years in NH State Prison, all suspended for 10 years on the conditions of good behavior and that she never again operate a motor vehicle. Bornstein also sentenced Francoeur to

BERLIN -- The city council last week approved renaming Hutchins Street park after long-time Community Services Director Laura Lee Viger. Viger retired last month after more than 30 years of service to the city. The council has been looking for a way to honor Viger for her work and dedication to the city. City Planner Pamela Laflamme reported that the park was a favorite of Viger. The popular park, originally known as Unity Street park, is on a frequent walking route for local citizens. A formal resolution naming the park for Viger will be on the council’s July 18 agenda. In other business: * The council approved a new two year contract between the police commission and police local 3657. The first year of the contract, which takes effect August 1, calls for no pay increase and the union agreed to switch to a new health insurance plan. The first year of the contract will result in

GM stands automaking on its head ORION TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The only subcompact car being built on American soil will soon roll out of an assembly plant here in suburban Detroit that is as unusual as the car itself. The production line has been squeezed into half the space of a traditional plant. Welding robots are concentrated in efficient clusters, instead of being spaced along the line, while many of the workers earn half the typical union wage. Even the first coat of rust-proofing has been reformulated so that it is onehundredth as thick as — and thereby cheaper than — the coating on other cars. One of the oldest axioms in the auto industry is that no company can build a subcompact car in the United States and make money because they are priced too low. The Ford Fiesta is built in Mexico. The Honda Fit is made in several places, including China and Brazil. But with Americans — and Detroit — rediscovering small cars because of high gasoline prices, General Motors is intent on shattering that notion with its new Chevrolet Sonic. A car with a base price of $14,500 would give G.M. a new entry in the lowest tier of the market when it goes on sale this fall, and the Sonic is expected to be a breakthrough in establishing a new level of cooperation between Detroit and the United Automobile Workers.

Visa delays imperil Iraqis who helped U.S.

BAGHDAD (NY Times) — Terrorism fears in the United States are all but halting visas for Iraqis, even those who risked their lives aiding the American war effort, making them especially vulnerable ahead of the planned American military withdrawal. The Obama administration has required new security background checks for visa applicants, reacting to a case in Kentucky in which two Iraqi immigrants were arrested for alleged ties to an insurgent

group, according to American officials in Baghdad. Advocates say that the administration is ignoring a directive from Congress to draft a contingency plan to expedite visas should those Iraqis who worked for the United States government, especially interpreters for the military, come under increased threat after American forces are drawn down at the end of the year. “This is not a priority right now for

anyone in the government,” said Becca Heller, who runs the Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project at the Urban Justice Center in New York. “Not enough people in the Obama administration care about this topic.” The flow of Iraqis to the United States this year could be the fewest since 2007, when the Bush administration was facing an uproar for not effectively addressing the refugee crisis brought on by its invasion.

GOP plan could give Obama Lawmakers to call Murdoch power to raise the debt limit to testify in hacking case WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said Tuesday that a bipartisan budget deal with President Obama was probably out of reach, and he proposed a plan under which the president could increase the federal debt limit without prior Congressional approval for offsetting spending cuts. McConnell’s proposal reflected a growing sense of pessimism on Capitol Hill about the prospects that Obama and Congressional leaders could come to terms on

a budget deal before the government’s borrowing authority hit its limit on Aug. 2. The negotiators sat down for another round of talks at the White House on Tuesday afternoon. In an interview with CBS News, Obama said he “cannot guarantee” that the government can pay benefits next month to Social Security recipients, veterans and the disabled if Congress does not increase the federal debt limit, raising the political stakes even as Republicans hardened their opposition to him.

LONDON (NY Times) — Rupert Murdoch’s once commanding influence in British politics seemed to dwindle to a new low on Tuesday, when all three major parties in Parliament joined in support of a sharp rebuke to his ambitions and a parliamentary committee said it would call him, along with two other top executives, to testify publicly next week about the growing scandal enveloping his media empire. Murdoch has been struggling to complete a huge, controversial takeover deal that still needs regulatory approval, the $12 billion acquisition of the shares in British Sky Broadcasting that his company does not already own. In an effort to save that deal from the scandal’s fallout, Murdoch has already shut down the tabloid at the heart of the scandal, The News of the World. But the accusations have spread to other papers in his News International group, and have taken in an ever wider and more outrage-provoking list of victims.

Jeff Locke to pitch in the Eastern League All Star Game in Manchester Wednesday THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Wednesday, July 13, 2011— Page 3

BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Jeff Locke, the son of Pam and Alan Locke and grandson of Greta Locke of Conway, is an All Star for the fourth time in his five-year pro career. In each of his stops up baseball's professional ladder, the talented left hander from Redstone has been selected to play in that league's Summer Classic. Wednesday's Eastern League All Star appearance in Manchester will be a little more special. It'll be the first one that family and friends will be able to attend, and he's the lone Granite Stater on either team's roster. "I'm real excited," Locke said by phone driving from Boston to Manchester Tuesday afternoon. "It's great to see the 'Welcome to New Hampshire' signs, it let's me know I'm home. … I didn't know I was the only player with New Hampshire ties, (laughing) maybe they should have me throw out the first pitch." There are still a limited number of tickets left for the game. "We're really looking forward to it," Pam Locke, said, Tuesday. "I know there are quite a few people from here going down. It'll be good to see Jeff. I think he's pretty excited to be coming home." The 2011 All Star Game will feature some of the top prospects and future stars from the Western Division (Altoona, Akron, Bowie, Erie, Harrisburg and Richmond) facing off against the best from the Eastern Division

(Binghamton, New Britain, Portland, New Hampshire, Reading and Trenton). Each team is comprised of 24 players with all of the teams being represented by at least one pitcher and one position player. Locke pitches for the Altoona Curve, a Class AA affililate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. The players were selected through a combination of fan balloting, and selections from managers, media and team personnel. Locke was among the top vote recipients in fan balloting. "It's a huge honor," he said. "I think it says a lot about the community back home and the people in New Hampshire supporting me." Locke was pleasantly surprised to learn a lot of his hometown friends and family were making the trek to Manchester. "Really, a lot of people are coming? I didn't expect that. It's not like a regular season game where I'm with my team and have an opportunity to pitch several innings. Here, it's probably going to be one inning and then I'm a spectator like them. I'm excited to see some familiar faces." As of press time the starting pitchers had not been named. "I thought I might have a chance to start the game since it was in New Hampshire, but I don't think that's going to happen," Locke said. "It looks like I'll probably be in for the third, fourth or fifth inning. I'd have liked to have started, just to get in and get out and then enjoy the night." Game time is 7 p.m., but there are

Jeff Locke.

a host of activities planned before the first pitch its thrown. Gates open at 2 p.m. followed by 2-2:45 p.m: Eastern Division batting practice; 2:45-3:30 p.m.: Western Division batting practice; 3:45-4:45 p.m.: Union Leader Autograph Session (both teams); 5-6:15 p.m.: Bonneville & Son Home Run Derby (first and second rounds); and 7:05 p.m.: first pitch. The middle of the second inning will feature the Home Run Derby finals. Locke is looking forward the home

run derby, but his favorite to win, teammate Jeremy Farrell (son of Toronto Blue Jays manager John Farrell) is on the disabled list and unable to play. "He was my pick, but now I'd have to go with someone whose left-handed, this park favors lefties," he said. " (Mike) McDade from the Fisher Cats has a very good chance to win it, he knows his park." Following the game will be an All Star Atlas Fireworks Spectacular.

Arts Jubilee launches summer concert series with return of Ceili Rain CONWAY — Arts Jubilee kicks off its 29th season of summer outdoor concerts on Thursday evening at Cranmore Mountain Resort in North Conway. An early concert is at 6 p.m., followed by the popular Ceili Rain at 7. Arts Jubilee has an expanded summer scheduled this year with concerts on five consecutive Thursday evenings from July 14 through Aug. 11 at the base of Cranmore's North Slope. Kicking off the season on Thursday will be the Celtic/pop/rock band, Ceili Rain. Area residents have enjoyed this great high-energy Celtic group at Arts Jubilee concerts in the past, and the group is always brought back by popular request. "Ceili" (pronounced KAY-lee) is an Irish word that means "party," specifically one with live musicians, dancing, general merriment and an all-ages crowd. The main concert will also feature a return performance by the Jeanne Limmer Dancers/Axis Dance Company performing a specially choreographed dance to a Ceili Rain favorite, “Peace Has Broken Out." Ceili Rain was formed in 1995 by singer-songwriter Bob Halligan Jr., best known for his songwriting work for Michael Bolton, Judas Priest, Cher and Joan Jett. Ceili Rain members are not strangers to the Mount Washington Valley. They were “discovered” by Mark Johnson and George Cleveland when he was at WMWV, and originally came to the valley to perform inside at the tavern at the New England Inn. An energetic and talented group, Ceili Rain performs to family audiences and is a departure from

many things — among them, the ordinary. The ensemble melds hard-driving rock guitar licks with traditional Celtic sounds and instruments such as button accordion, tin whistle, fiddle and bagpipes. Ceili Rain makes music that is, as Halligan puts it, "Celtic music for a pop/rock palate." "Pairing rock and roll with traditional music is not a novel concept, but when you can make an audience dance a jig to songs about life, death, and other spiritual topics — now, that's an art," says Arts Jubilee organizer Cindy Russell. Even Ceili's spiritual songs are not heavy-handed. "They're not religious in a "born again," in-yourface way," says Halligan. "They're about universal themes — about feelings, struggles, dilemmas. Most of all, they're open to interpretation. The most important thing about Ceili Rain," he says, "is that our music celebrates life." An early concert at 6 p.m. will showcase special community participation by the Mountain Top Music Community String Band, under the leadership of Seth Austin. Bring your own picnic blanket or lawn chairs. The time of all featured concerts this season is 7 p.m. Food and beverages are available on the deck at Zip’s Pub. There is plenty of parking within steps of the concert area, and there are indoor restroom facilities. Other concerts this summer include: Dennis and Davey of Four Feet Two Shoes and Jonathan Sarty and his White Mountain Boys on July 21; the Wicked Smart Horn Band on Thursday, July 28

; the popular Cape Cod band, Entrain, on Aug. 4; and the grand finale concert featuring the New England Wind Ensemble in Arts Jubilee's traditional symphony pops concert with fireworks on Thursday, Aug. 11. Please note that the July 21 and Aug. 4 concerts reflect a difference in the original schedule made public in earlier issues. In addition to Cranmore’s continued support as host sponsor, Arts Jubilee's season and major sponsors include White Mountain Oil and Propane, Coca Cola of Northern New England, Laconia Savings Bank, The Seasons Condominiums, Ragged Mountain Equipment, Story Land, Comfort Inn and Suites, Eastern Slope Inn Resort, Golden Gables Inn, Leone, McDonnell and Roberts, Mount Washington Auto Road, North Conway Rotary, Northway Bank, and Shaw’s Supermarket. Major sponsorship support this year is from TD Bank, White Mountain Waldorf School, Pete’s Restaurant Equipment and M&M Assurance Group, and there are 15 additional supporting and community sponsors. The remaining funds needed to support the concert series are borne by private donations, grants, and the purchase of wrist bands at the gate by concert goers. This year’s admission at each of the five concerts is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors 65 and up. Kids 12 and under are free.

RSVP thanks tourney sponsors and golfers To the editor: This year’s SFA Classic Golf Tournament was especially important to the RSVP program, sponsored by Tri-County CAP. Kathy McKenna, program director, explained to the participants during the award ceremony that her program has suffered a huge financial loss as the legislators cut funding ($8,500) for the RSVP program this year at the state level. The tournament is one of the ways she and her staff are trying to make up the difference. With a downed economy we weren’t sure what the tournament would bring this year. We have been completely overwhelmed. I can’t say thank you enough. The businesses and participants responded generously to our requests for help. We need to especially recognize and thank Chapman Scrap Metal & Recycling for donating the cash prize for the winning team. It was a last minute contribution to entice more golfers and added three more teams to the event. The golfers were excited to be vying for a cash prize. The donation made the event more interesting and certainly added to RSVP’s take- away. Not only did it bring more golfers into the tournament but the winning team of Kevin Theberge, Mike Desiltes, Sean Reardon and Dave LaChance, with a gross score of 58, donated 60 percent of their winnings back to RSVP. That is $900 we wouldn’t have seen if not for Bob Chapman and a great group of young men’s help.

Although we didn’t get the opportunity to give away a car or any other Hole In One prizes we are very grateful to Berlin City Auto Group who donated the Hole In One prize package. The chance to win a car will always bring golfers to the event. Additionally the Hole In One company in partnership with Berlin City Auto Group gave away $50 Callaway gift cards, redeemable with just a test drive of a wide and beautiful selection of automobiles. Ken Arsenault, Keith Couture, Mike Goyette and Ernie Blais, who are the net winners with the score of 43, received golf shirts embroidered by Suzanne French along with a round of golf at the picturesque Panorama golf course at The Balsams Grand Resort. Another very special thanks goes to Gary Riff, Golf Pro at AVCC for donating the prizes for the specialty shots won by: Long Drive/Men, Sean Reardon, Long Drive/ Women, Lise King, Closest to the Pin/Men, Al Nadeau and Closest to the Pin/Women, Lise King. Gary also donated food and sponsored a team. All golfers who entered the raffle were eligible to win some really great gifts donated by the following businesses: Chris Adams Photography, Avon- Pauline Johnsey, Androscoggin Valley County Club, Bethlehem Country Club, the Berlin Bowling Center, Bisson’s Sugar House, Bob’s Variety, Colebrook Country Club, Colonial Fort Inn, Cooper, Cargill & Chant, PA, see RSVP page 5

Summer in Ogunquit, Me.

It was 1943 and I was 15 years old when I spent my summer in Ogunquit, Me. I was contacted early in July by Eddie Conron, my next door neighbor in North Reading, Mass., and told about a job as a bus boy at Sparhawk Hall in Ogunquit, Me., a “good” hotel on the beach there. After consultation with my parents, I was soon on a bus headed north toward a new adventure. Sparhawk Hall was one of several beach establishments for guests each summer that housed them and served meals in a “fancy” dining room. Since the experience was beyond anything I had ever done. in fact it was too be the first time I had ever not been with my parents for the night, I was plenty excited and a little apprehensive upon arrival there. As I remember it, our quarters were in a separate building on the hotel grounds. They were fairly sparse and were backed up to the girl’s wing. As I remember it the boy’s bathroom and the girl’s bathroom had a “common” wall. Here and there, along this wall. were small holes drilled so one could look into the girl’s bathroom. While there was much chatter about this, I don’t remember ever once glancing in to find something titillating on the other side. Nor do I remember anyone else excited about what they had seen either. What I do remember was that the work was fairly easy, but the hours were long. We served three meals each day and time off was pretty scarce. At 15 I was tall and gawky and completely without any skill when it came to wooing girls. Some of the guys reported “suc-

cess,” but I was pretty skeptical of their “revelations.” I also found that bus boy was considered a low skill job and commanded little esteem. My friend, Eddie, was a bell hop. That job had much more prestige and earned him a lot more in tips then I ever made. Of course, my tips came to me through the girl waitresses I served. I really had no way of knowing just how honest they were in kicking in ten percent of what they made to we poor bus boys. But other than working hard for low pay, being at Sparhawk Hall all summer was a lot of fun. While it took a while to get used to being on my own, once I got things organized I liked doing my own stuff like personal grooming and laundry. There were lots of activities organized by the staff to keep us all busy during off hours like games and beach parties. I suppose I was home sick at times, but I don’t really remember it at all. One of the nice things since then has been learning that Lala was also in Ogunquit that summer working as a waitress at the Onteo Hotel nearby. We have talked several tines about what fun we might have had had we met that summer. She was two tears older than me that summer. At 17, and heading for her freshman year at U Maine in Orono that fall, I just don’t think she would have had much interest in a skinny 15 year old. But? Anyway, it has been nice remembering the Summer of ‘43 at Sparhawk Hall in Ogunquit one more time!

The attacks on the North Country have gone way too far To the editor: The attacks on New Hampshire’s North Country have gone way too far. Isaacson Steel in Berlin is struggling to emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, due largely to competition from Canadian fabricators and their government subsidies. Brookfield Renewable Power has refused to use local Ironworkers to erect their wind farm in Dummer and surrounding towns, and is instead importing crews from Wisconsin and Utah. And now a Korean owned Independent Power Provider is using our court system to kill 400 construction jobs in a part of New Hampshire that needs them so badly, the city of Berlin. Whitefield Power and Light may well sound like a local company, but what they are is a multi-billion dollar, ulti-national corporation that couldn’t care less about the unemployment rate in Coos County. Korea East-West Corporation acquired Whitefield Power and Light in 2010. This is a corporation that accounts for 12 percent of all of South Korea’s power production. They have been part of a group of six independent power producers intervening against the Berlin Station Biomass Project that has the promise to be a major driver for the North Country’s economic recovery. The project developers, PSNH, the PUC, the Independent Power Producers, and state officials, including Gov. Lynch, have been attempting to negotiate an agreement that would have the Independent Power Producers withdraw the appeal. Talks were going well and all parties were on board with finding a solution that would put everyone on an even playing field. Once that

agreement had been made, it was understood that all the Independent Power Producers would withdraw their appeal to the Supreme Court and the project could go forward without delay. Everyone was eager to settle the matter with these purchase agreements, everyone but Korean owned, Whitefield, that is. At the eleventh hour, Whitefield Power and Light demanded a thirteen million dollar payout on top of any power purchase agreement with PSNH, essentially killing the deal and with it the project that could mean so much to New Hampshire’s economy. Go to the company’s website and watch their PR video. http://www.ewp.co.kr/eng/index.asp Then ask yourself; does this corporation need to insist on extorting $13M at the risk of killing up to 1200 direct and indirect jobs that this project would have created? It seems to me, they’d do just fine without it. They claim to be a clean energy power producer, but there’s nothing clean about their greedy extortion tactics. I urge your readers to call Terry Williams, EWP’s U.S. President and CEO at his San Diego office and tell him he is striking a devastating blow to New Hampshire’s North Country.

A couple from Maine got an unwelcome surprise on Thursday. While picking up aluminum cans on the side of the road in the Thirteen Mile Woods in Cambridge, Evelyn M. Hamilton and her husband Floyd, of Hanover, Maine, left their vehicle on the roadside, but evidently forgot to put it in park. The 2005 Chevy Equinox rolled down the bank into the Androscoggin River, unbeknownst to the couple until a passerby alerted them. NH State Police, Fish and Game and the Coos County Sheriff’s Department all responded to the scene. The waterlogged vehicle was towed out of the water with little fanfare.

In addition I want to thank the RSVP volunteers who helped out that day, Gayle Lawhorne, Warren Johnson and Butch Loven. And to AVCC staff Missy Nolin, Suzette Vu and Matt MacArthur who did a great job of taking care of RSVP’s guests and to Moe Thompson and the grounds crew for a great course to play on.

BERLIN -- Choose fresh, shop local and use your SNAP/EBT benefits at the Berlin Local Works Farmers Market. SNAP benefits are the part of New Hampshire’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program through Electronic Benefits Transfer. At the Farmers Market your food money can go a long way towards buying groceries. You can purchase breads, baked goods, fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, and seeds and plants that produce food for you and your household to eat. The process for using your SNAP/EBT benefits is easy.

Bring all your receipts to the Local Works tent and they will swipe your SNAP card through their EBT machine, and return your slips to you. You take the slips back to the vendors to receive your purchases of fresh homemade breads, locally grown meats, sweet fruits, savory vegetables, fresh herbs and even a tomato plant. The Berlin Local Works Farmers Market is a ‘producer only’ market, which means that vendors only sell what they themselves produce. Greens, fruits

Mayor Paul Grenier noted that overall the two year contract will save the city $8,134. * Housing Coordinator André Caron briefed the council on his demolition budget. He is proposing to demolish six buildings; 216 Grafton St., 49 Gilbert St., 249 East Mason St., 246 Grafton St., 12 Cambridge St., and 729 Second Ave. All of the properties Gorham Paper and Tissue use its easements on Shelby Street for its proposed new natural gas line.

Caron said the money has to be committed by November. He said his goal is to have most of the buildings down by then. The funding for the demolition work comes from a federal Economic Development Initiative grant that former U.S. Senator John E.

Evans, who chairs the council traffic safety committee, has made cleaning and updating signage in the city one of his priorities. He noted many parking signs are rusting and hanging off hinges. Under the proposed resolution, one hour and 30-minute parking spots will be eliminated. Two hour parking will be in place on Exchange Street, Mechanic Street, Main Street from Green Square to the intersection of High Street, Pleasant Street from the intersection of Main Street to the intersection of Diana Street except for the section on the west side from

Green Street to Mt. Forist Street and the southern side of High Street to Pleasant Street, and the south side of East Mason Street from Champlain Street to Burgess Street. Fifteen minute parking will be limited to a zone on the west side of Main Street in front of 737 Main St., the south side of Green Street from Gilbert Street to the corner of First Avenue, and one space on the west side of Pleasant Street in front of 283 Pleasant St. The resolution was left on the table last week to be brought up for passage at the next council meeting.

process to convert the biomass to ultra-clean synthetic diesel and jet fuel. Fortune said the U.S. military, for one, has indicated its intention to use renewable fuels. While renewable fuel is the primary product, the process allows for the co-production of electricity. Fortune said he projects producing 65 megawatts of electricity for the grid. The plant would also produce steam which could be used for district heating or to run a commercial greenhouse operation. As designed, Fortune said the plant would consume about 650,000 tons of biomass a year - about 100,000 tons less than projected for the Berlin Station. The plant would also be able to use sewer sludge, construction debris, and

municipal solid waste as its fuel source. Fortune said the plant would employ about 18 people directly but would create many more jobs in the forest industry. The plant would have low emissions and, because it uses renewable biomass, would be considered low carbon emitting. Because of its efficiency, Fortune said the plant would be able to sell its power and heat at market rates. Fortune has developed a business plant that calls for constructing two such plants - one in the southern part of the state and one in the northern section. The business plan notes that raising the funds to construct two plants simultaneously will be a challenge. The plan notes there are tax advantages if they can break ground in 2011. The business plan described its mission as

multi-fold - “to bring prosperity to the local community, provide an excellent return for our investors, yet at the same time set the highest standards for environmental stewardship�. Fortune was a production engineer for 16 years at the Portsmouth Navel Shipyard where he developed, purchased, and maintained numerous equipment and facilities for the overhaul of nuclear submarines. He started Industrial Consultants Inc., in 1983. Also part of the management team is Bill Rollins, the president of NovelEdge Technologies and a consulting engineer in equipment design specializing in the power industry. Rollins has a partnership agreement with the Department of Energy for the development of advanced processes for the production of synthetic fuels.

Planning board approves Notre Dame and Pisani BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN --The Notre Dame senior housing project received site plan approval from the planning board last week. The board also approved, with conditions, an amended site plan from Felix Pisani and Roberta Remillard for their proposed take-out restaurant. Max Makaitis of Tri-County Community Action noted that two years ago the board gave conditional site plan approval to a proposal by developers Dana Willis and James Tamposi to turn the former high school into an assisted senior living facility. The two developers were not able to finance the project. Makaitis said the plan now is to convert the historic building into senior housing which is permitted within the zone for that property. He said CAP is looking at 33 1-bedroom units for low to moderate income seniors. He said CAP will own, operate, and manage the project. Makaitis explained that renovating the building will cost an estimated $8 million. He said the project is not economically feasible without grant funding which is why he said it has to be developed by a non-profit organization that can access such funding. Makaitis said CAP has applied for a variety of different grants including a $4.8 million grant from N.H. Housing Finance Authority and a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant. Makaitis said CAP has a purchase and sale agreement with the city, which owns the building, giving it until 2013 to raise the needed money. He noted the board had required a traffic study for the earlier proposal. Makaitis said that is not necessary for this project because it will not require a large number of employees like the assisted living project. The senior housing development will have only a full-time coordinator. He said the plan allows for 44 parking spaces plus four handicapped parking spaces. Councilor Tom McCue, who represents the council on the planning board, said if the project is successful it will be a real improvement for the neighborhood. The council approved the site plan. Felix Pisani said he has obtained a building permit for the resGUILTY from page one

taurant and begun site work. He said they have purchased the property on the south side of their lot and are asking to have the requirement for a privacy fence on that side removed. Pisani said he will still go forward with a six foot privacy fence on the north side. Pisani also asked to have his hours of operation amended to allow him to open at 5:30 a.m. for breakfast. He said the planning board had limited operating hours to between 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. City Planner Pamela Laflamme said Pisani should have had the fence up before starting any construction. Abutter Jason Vien agreed and asked that Pisani install the fence a foot away from the property line to allow him to maintain it without intruding on the Vien property. Pisani said it was his understanding the fence had to be up before his business opened. He said he plans to put up a vinyl fence that does not need maintenance and plans to install it an inch from the property line. Planning Board member Lucien Langlois, a contractor, agreed with Pisani and said the fence usually goes up last - after the landscaping is complete. He said, however, contractors frequently put up a temporary fence during construction. Langlois said he had no problem with Pisani’s request to open for breakfast. Councilor Tom McCue said he had some safety concerns with school kids walking to the nearby Brown School in the morning. Remillard and Pisani pointed out that other businesses in the area are open in the morning. The pair also noted students

get out of school in the afternoon when the restaurant will be open. The planning board voted to remove the need for a privacy fence on the south side unless there is a change in ownership for either parcel. Pisani will be required to put up a temporary construction fence on the north side until he can install the permanent fence there. The restriction on operating hours was removed. Site plan review was tabled for Barbara and Tom Sweeney who want to open a thrift store at 273 Pleasant Street. The couple plan to operate the store on the first floor and use

the second floor for living quarters. The building had been used as a residential property but falls within the downtown zone. Barbara Sweeney said operating hours would be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. She said there is on-site parking for five vehicles. The planning board tabled the application to get a copy of the property survey and more information on parking. Laflamme said the energy committee is looking for more members. Anyone with an interest in energy and in serving on the committee can contact Laflamme.

Town manager signs two year contract BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM — The town of Gorham will continue under the management of Robin Frost for two more years. The board of selectmen recently approved a two year contract extension with the town manager, which will keep her in the corner office at the town hall through 2013. The contract was announced at the July 5 meeting of the selectmen and all parties expressed their pleasure at having come to an agreement. The two-year agreement keeps Frost on at a salary of $62,000 for each year. Selectmen Dave Graham noted that, speaking for himself, he was very pleased to be able to enter into a two year contract with Frost. Fellow board member Paul Robitaille reiterated that sentiment. Robitaille said he was “very satisfied with what she’s done so far,” adding that he felt the

contract is in the best interest of the community. Chairman of the board of selectmen, Terry Oliver, said that although he was initially apprehensive about how Frost would adapt from a position as Wakefield town administrator where the selectmen were in charge, to one where she held the day to day responsibilities of running the town, it’s worked out. “She has adapted quite well,” Oliver said. He also said that he felt the board and Frost had a very good relationship in their first year, which he expects to continue. Frost agreed, noting that she and the board “work very well together.” Even the few members of the public in attendance at the meeting voiced their agreement, saying that they found the town manager very approachable.

By Holiday Mathis don’t have to tell anyone what you’re thinking, either. You are entitled to your thought processes and are not obligated to share them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People look out for their own needs. You’ll try to understand the wants and needs of those around you so that you may anticipate what is likely to happen next. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Having to be absolutely right all the time is a punishing imposition. It only leads to feeling like you are usually wrong. That’s why you refuse to worry about it. You know what you know, and you do your best with that. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to move a mountain, and move it you will. It will happen little by little. Commit to one simple action. Other changes will happen naturally as the world adjusts to accommodate your action. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be drawn to esoteric pursuits, the likes of which could be considered “frivolous nonsense” by some standards. You know better. Your “frivolous nonsense” will be life enhancing in some practical way. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 13). You’ll pursue higher education and develop your keen mind. You have an excellent memory for names and faces and will use it to further political and professional interests. Financial barriers drop in September. November highlights relationships. New business in December is both challenging and fulfilling. Leo and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 18, 19, 16 and 37.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your list of abilities is quite long, and it’s about to get longer. Effortless learning is your specialty now. You’re a sponge, picking up new skills by simply being near the people who possess them. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re headed toward sudden and acute disillusionment. This is quite positive, as it will bring you to what’s real and make you more powerful than ever. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your discretion will be needed, and it won’t be entirely clear how much you should say. Telling the truth is never the wrong thing to do. But you won’t be a liar if you keep your mouth shut. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You always have a choice about how curious to be, and you usually choose to be absolutely fascinated. You recognize boredom as a state of mind that cannot be imposed on you by anything outside of yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Instead of dreaming impossible dreams, you focus closer to real life. You imagine what you can do to make the best of your time today, and you fully engage in life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will consider making a big change. Think it over for a long while.

Page 14 — THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Wednesday, July 13, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren

PASTOR WITHOUT COMPASSION NEEDS A COME-TO-JESUS TALK

DEAR ABBY: We have a problem -- our pastor. He uses the pulpit to criticize, put people down and offers no compassion. A person can only take so much. The problem is, if you say anything to him, you can bet the next sermon will be about what you discussed. How can I talk to him without making him angry? -- ALL FIRE AND BRIMSTONE DEAR A.F. AND B.: Your pastor’s behavior gives new meaning to the term “bully pulpit.” Rather than approach him yourself, you and others who feel as you do should take your complaint to the governing board of your church. And if that doesn’t fix the problem, you should seriously consider finding another “flock” to join because it appears your shepherd has lost his way. DEAR ABBY: I have been dating “Claude” for eight months. We are planning a trip in the fall to visit his family’s chateau in France. Claude has long legs and refuses to travel in coach because it’s uncomfortable, so he will buy a business-class ticket for himself and a coach ticket for me. While I’m grateful Claude is paying for my ticket, I feel that since we’re a couple, we should travel together. I don’t want to be upgraded to business class necessarily, but I’d like him to sit in coach with me. When I brought this up, he refused and is now calling me “ungrateful.” My feelings are hurt, and Claude can’t understand why I am upset. My friends and family think he is acting rude and selfish. I can’t help but agree. Do I have a right to be upset? I am so uncomfortable with this arrangement that I’m considering not even going. -- NOT UNGRATEFUL IN SAN DIEGO DEAR NOT UNGRATEFUL: San Diego to France is a LONG flight. It’s a long time to expect a tall person to fold up like a praying mantis just so you won’t be sitting alone in a coach seat on your way to an all-expense-paid vacation.

Claude has good reason for wanting to sit in business class. So be a sport and offer to pay for an upgrade to business class and sit with him. I agree that you shouldn’t be seated “10 paces behind him,” and this way you would both be comfortable. DEAR ABBY: When my husband, “Ken,” proposed three years ago, he had a steady job with an income twice as high as mine. He was laid off before our wedding, but we went ahead with the marriage. After our wedding, Ken was unemployed for another year before finally finding a minimum wage job. After one year at that job, he was fired. He has since found another minimum wage position. I am a young teacher. We live in an expensive part of the country. We struggle every day to pay for groceries, gas and other essentials. I wasn’t raised to expect many frills in life and I am frugal, but there are certain things I always assumed I would have -- a house of my own, children, a savings account. If I stay with Ken, I don’t believe these things will ever be within my reach. In all other ways, Ken is a wonderful man and I love him with all my heart. But is there ever a time when love isn’t all you need? -- SECOND THOUGHTS IN ASHEVILLE, N.C. DEAR SECOND THOUGHTS: You and Ken have hit a rough patch early in your marriage, but millions of Americans are even worse off -- out of work and have given up trying to find any. When you married Ken you promised each other “for richer or poorer.” This recession won’t last forever and, in the meantime, you have a wonderful man you love with all your heart. Whether that’s enough or not, only you can answer. But if you trade in this model, there are no 100 percent guarantees that the next one will be able to give you all you need, either. You may find that in order to get all you need, you’ll have to do it on your own.

Marshall, Carbone, Caron, Nelson, Gyger, Kenison register Riverside victories GROVETON -- Webster, New Hampshire’s Matt Carbone got to the front early and held off young gun Nick Gilcris and earned two feature wins on Chapman Scrap Metal and Recycling night at Groveton’s Riverside Speedway. The Budweiser Super Stocks opened the evening’s racing with a make-up feature. Carbone made a bold move to get under the #29 of Allison Barney and set sail for the lead by lap six. By lap 24, Groveton’s Nick Gilcris caught the back bumper of Carbone, however, it was just a little too late. Carbone carried the checkers, Gilcris was the bridesmaid, and hard charging Bobby Taylor went third. In their regular feature race for the night, Carbone carried the checkered flag once again. Gilcris, Trevor Roy, David Allen, and Taylor rounded out the top five. Roy took down the heat win. In the Caron Building Center/Sign Depot Daredevil division, hard accidents in both heat and feature races forced early ends to the racing events. Colby Bourgeous took home the rookie

win and Tyler Austin captured the veteran victory. In the Jiffy Mart Cyclone division, Groveton’s Chris Caron took off from his pole starting position and set sail for the win. Jason Wyman, Cole Kilby, Nick Pilotte, and Jarred Ainsworth followed Caron to the finish line. Caron and Kilby won the qualifying races. The Griffin Family Angels Division finally found a different face in victory lane. Tracie Nelson snuck under Tina Leveille on lap three and then held off point leader Shauna Randall to become just the second winner of the division in 2011. The division has been dominated by Randall who finished second. Shawna Whitcomb placed third while Vanessa Brown and Jenna Randall finished in the top five. Leveille dusted the field in the heat race. The Twisted Tea Dwarf cars appeared headed for a great finish, with the top five racers all under a blanket. Contact was made with the open wheeled racers sending top guns Bear Lapan and Dennis O’Brien off on wild rides. The accident ended the

night for both racers. That allowed point leader the #93 of Dave Gyger to post the win. Kevin Scott Hockman in his #33 machine had his best finish ever, taking the runner-up spot. #44 Tony Leary, #98 Rod Knudson, and the #27 Aric Cole completed the top five. Heat wins went to Lapan and Cole. The Town & Country Motor Inn Street Stock division saw more rubbing than racing. After the dust had settled, Groveton’s Jason Kenison held off the hard charging Nick Pilotte. Red hot Dean Switser, Ben Belanger, and Cody LeBlanc took home top five finishes. Belanger won the heat event. The North Country Ford Late Models have been the story of the year at Riverside Speedway. The ground pounding group ran their 40 lap feature without caution. It was the Dad’s 4By Tool & Supply favorite Driver’s event for the LMS class. The heat races were run according to the fan’s vote. That aligned the top six starters for the feature race. Brandon Lambert and Paul Schartner III brought the racers to green. Marshall started fifth and worked the outside groove. That eventually made a winner out of Jefferson resident. Marshall worked the outside lane and took control of the event by lap 15. Lambert had his best finish to date taking in the runner-up position. Bryan Mason, Corey Mason, and Jesse Switser finished out the top five. Marshall and Switser won the heat events. This coming Saturday night its favorite driver’s night sponsored by Dad’s 4By Tool and Supply. The JA Corey/US Cellular Outlaw/Sportsman have had up to 15 participants this year and will be head lining the show. Super stocks, Street stocks, Dwarf cars, Angels, Cyclones, and Daredevils will also be on the card. Riverside Speedway is an ACT affiliated track located off of Brown Road in Groveton, NH.

Mountaineer Pop Warner registration is July 15 BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

NORTH CONWAY -- The Mount Washington Valley Mountaineers Football program will hold a mandatory registration event for all interested football players on July 15, from to 7:30 p.m. at the North Conway Community Center in North Conway. All students, regardless of ability or experience are welcome, and should show up any time during registration hours to fit for helmets and pads, weigh in, and to complete or hand in registration forms. The Mountaineers will be fielding an open weight Patriot Division team, as well as a Junior Midget Division team. So, any player who previously could not play due to weight should attend. The Mountaineers begin practices during the first week of August. Games begin in late summer. The Mountaineers belong to New Hampshire Pop Warner, and draw from Mount Washington Valley and beyond. Any student aged 11 to 15 is welcome to play. Because of the mandatory play requirements of Pop Warner, every player is guaranteed playing time in each game. An expanded draw area includes players from the Midget Division of the King-

swood region (towns listed below). Andy Pepin, president and head coach of the Mountaineers, believes the football program will be highly competitive this year, with an eye toward a New Hampshire State Championship trophy. He hopes that a strong returning player roster and an expanded coaching staff will make a big difference. “We have expanded our coaching staff beyond offensive and defensive coordinator coaches to include a linebacker coach, running back coach and conditioning coach,” Pepin stated. “Our staff of volunteer coaches ensures that each player will receive individual attention and skill development opportunities.” The Mountaineers are entering their second season, and will compete against other Pop Warner programs from New Hampshire, Massachusetts and beyond. The Mountaineers home field is Kennett High School’s Gary Millen Stadium. Most home games take place on Sunday. For away games students will be bused to locations such as Manchester and Concord. “We work closely with the Kennett High School Football coaching staff and Coach Mike Holderman to see POP WARNER page 18

If any family is unable to cover either of these costs, a scholarship will be made available. The Mountaineers draw area includes players from any elementary school, middle school or high school from the following towns: Albany, Bartlett, Berlin, Brownfield ME, Center Conway, Chatham, Conway, Denmark, Eaton, Fryeburg, Gorham, Jackson, Jefferson, Lancaster, Littleton, North Conway, Tamworth, Whitefield.

If the participation is great, the Mountaineers will look at having practices at different locations to cut on travel time.

that the players become familiar with that style of play, and we use the same playbook as Coach Holderman,” Pepin offered. “Many of our players will come from the area middle schools and will soon be playing for Kennett High School. So, we want to give them a head start before they graduate up.” Weight and safety specifications require players in the Jr. Midget division to weigh between 85 and 135 pounds, and for the Patriot division from 105 and upward at the start of the season for 11 to 14 year olds. Fourteen-year-old freshmen interested in playing can not weight more than 165 at the beginning of the season. Fourteen year old eighth graders, as long as they meet the 105 pound minimum, have no maximum weight guideline. Because of stringent safety regulations in Pop Warner, there is an absence of catastrophic head and neck injuries and disruptive joint injuries than are found at higher levels. The injury rate in Pop Warner Football is less than one-third the injury rate in high school football and less than one-fifth the injury rate in college football. Furthermore, Pop Warner’s age-weight schematic protects younger, lighter players, who do not have higher injury rates. A modest registration contribution of $75 will be
