BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

WEST STEWARTSTOWN -- The Coos County Commissioners Wednesday wanted more information before agreeing to hold federal detainees at the county jail in West Stewartstown. Corrections Superintendent Craig Hamelin and Sheriff Gerald Marcou said they were approached by U.S. Border Patrol. U.S. Marshals Service, and Immigration and Customs Enforcements about housing federal detainees for up to 72 hours at the Coos Jail. Hamelin said Paul Kuhn, the Agent-in-Charge at the U.S. Border Station in Beecher Falls, Vt., asked if the county would be interested in a federal detainee contract. Hamelin said Kuhn explained there are times when his agency is looking for a place to temporarily hold a detainee until they can transport the detainee to a federal facility. He said Kuhn indicated his agency is currently transporting such detainees to New York. Hamelin said U.S. Border Patrol is not talking about housing a large number of detainees at the Coos jail. In 2010, he said the Beecher

Falls station had a total of 41 detainees. Hamelin stressed the county would not house high risk detainees or those with medical issues and would retain the right to reject detainees. Border Patrol would also remove a detainee who causes problems for the county. Because the detainees would only be housed at the Coos jail for short periods, Hamelin said they would not change the operation of the facility or require additional services. He said he sees it as a way to generate additional revenue for the county which would be paid between $65 to $85 per detainee per day. The Border Patrol also wants the ability to use the sheriff’s department to transport the detainees. Marcou said he understands most would go to a federal facility in Berlin, Mass. He said he would require two deputies on such long distance transfers. The rate for transports is normally between $30 and $50 per hour plus mileage, Marcou said. Hamelin said the county could get an emergency hold waiver which would allow the jail to house detainees while a contract is negotiated. He said the county could obtain such a see DETAINEES page 3

Counties talk of cutting ties with Calif. RIVERSIDE, Calif. (NY Times) — Natives here have long called this area the Inland Empire, a grand title for a stretch of cities about 50 miles east of Los Angeles. Now, a few political leaders are hoping this empire will lead a movement to break off from the State of California. Frustrated by a state government he calls “completely dysfunctional” and “totally unresponsive,” a conservative Republican county supervisor is pushing a proposal for roughly a dozen counties in the eastern and southern parts of the nation’s thirdlargest state — conspicuously not including the heavily Democratic city of Los Angeles — to form a new state to be called South California. “We have businesses leaving all the time, and we’re just driving down a cliff to become a third-world economy,” said the supervisor, Jeff Stone, who once ran for the Legislature. “Anyone you ask has a horror story. At some point we have to decide enough is enough and deal with it in a radically new way.” He added: “I am tired of California being the laughingstock of late-night jokes. We must change course immediately or create a new state.”

purges In retreat, Murdoch Egypt Mubarak-era drops TV takeover police officers records are from 1886 to present

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

LONDON (NY Times) — In a stunning setback after days of building scandal surrounding its British newspaper operations, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation announced on Wednesday that it was withdrawing a $12 billion bid to take over the shares it does not already own in Britain’s main satellite television broadcaster. The withdrawal from the bid for complete control of British Sky Broadcasting, also known as BSkyB, represented the most severe damage inflicted so far

on Murdoch’s corporate ambitions by the scandal. Only a week ago, Murdoch hoped to contain the damage by shutting down his 168-year-old tabloid, The News of the World, which had admitted to ordering the hacking of the voice mail of Milly Dowler, a 13-year-old girl abducted and murdered in 2002. Since then, virtually every day has brought dizzying new disclosure and developments, culminating in News Corporation’s announcement on Wednesday.

Syria calls pipeline explosion an accident BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Syrian officials blamed a technical problem for an explosion that damaged a natural gas pipeline near Deir al-Zour, a restive region in eastern Syria near the Iraqi border. The explosion, which occurred at 12:30 a.m. local time on Tuesday, was caused by a hole in the pipeline, an official from the Syrian Oil Company

was quoted as saying by Syria News, a Web site there. The official said that a fire resulted from the explosion in Al-Tayana village, 50 miles from Deir el-Zour, the country’s fifth-largest city and the scene of large protests against the government of President Bashar al-Assad. The official, who was not identified, said that the fire was

extinguished three hours later and that a technical team was repairing the damage. Residents said the town was rife with rumors suggesting that the explosion was caused by the family of a protester, who is in detention. Syria News, citing accounts, said the protester’s parents had asked authorities to release him or they would blow up pipelines.

CAIRO (NY Times) — Egypt’s transitional military government announced the early retirement of more than 600 senior police officers on Wednesday in an effort to mollify thousands of protesters at a six-dayold sit-in in this city’s Tahrir Square who have been demanding justice for those complicit in wrongdoing under President Hosni Mubarak. Officials of the Interior Ministry said 18 police generals and nine senior officers were forced into early retirement because they were accused of killing protesters during the 18-day uprising that forced Mubarak from power in February. For the same reason, 54 lower-ranking officers were shifted to jobs where they no longer interact with civilians, the officials said. More than 800 people were killed in three weeks of nonviolent demonstrations this year. The ministry said no officers accused of killing protesters remained in their old positions, but it declined to give their names, and it provided no explanation for the forced early retirement of nearly 500 other police generals and about 150 other senior officers.

North Country Health Harry Gregg Foundation Consortium leadership to change announces funds for NC

LITTLETON – Adele Woods, President of the Board of the North Country Health Consortium (the Consortium), announced Wednesday that Martha McLeod, MOE, RD, LD, executive director, will be leaving the organization effective July 29. Nancy Frank, MPH, currently the development director, will assume the role of interim executive director while a search process is carried out for a new executive director. Martha McLeod has been with the Consortium since 1999 and was the first fulltime executive director. During her tenure, the organization has brought in more than $15 million in grant funded resources to the North Country to support the efforts of 20 professional employees who work toward the mission of improving health outcomes for the people of northern New Hampshire. McLeod served as the principal investigator/ project director on many of the grants/ contracts that were implemented during her time at the Consortium. “I feel that I have gotten the organization to where it needs to be, and that is very rewarding to me,” said McLeod. “There are many exciting opportunities developing in the health care and health policy arena and I want to take a step back and assess how best to use these opportunities to improve the quality of life for North Country residents. As a native of the North Country, it has been rewarding for me to be able to channel my own passion in a way that improved the quality of life of the people who live in this region of New Hampshire. I could not have done my work without a great staff and supportive board and members. ” McLeod also spent four years representing North Country communities in the New Hampshire House of Representatives and was able to speak in committee and on the floor about the impact of policy decisions on rural health and rural people. “Over the 12 years Martha has been with the Consortium, the organization has grown in reputation, in budget and in our influence and impact, shaping the quality of the rural health system and improving health outcomes.” The Consortium began in the late 1990s as a group of health and human service providers from Littleton and Berlin. We quickly added our peers from the Colebrook, Woodsville and Lancaster communities. Today, I am proud to say that the Consortium has 28 diverse organizational members who are committed to continuing the collaboration that we are so well known for to improve the health of the North Country region,” said Woods. Woods went on to say, “We are very pleased that Nancy Frank has stepped forward as the interim executive director. Frank has been with the Consortium since 2009. Her work has centered on developing funding opportunities and in the area of health care workforce. The Consortium Board appreciates her willingness to step forward and serve in an interim capacity while we conduct a search process for

a new director.” Prior to coming to the Consortium Ms. Frank worked for the Northeastern Vermont Area Health Education Center (AHEC) and the Vermont Department of Public Health. North Country Health Consortium is designated as a rural health network, an Area Health Education Center and a Public Health Training Center by HRSA; as the Regional Prevention Network by the NH Bureau of Drugs and Alcohol Services; and as the regional Public Health Network by the Division of Public Health, NH Department of Health and Human Services. The Consortium also operates the Molar Express, a mobile oral health clinic that provides services in North Country schools, nursing homes and community clinics for children and low-income adults. Other Consortium activities include health profession continuing education and health career promotion; substance abuse prevention focused on area youth; health emergency planning with area municipalities; and advocacy for maintaining health care service delivery in the region. Major funding partners for the Consortium include Dartmouth Medical School and The Dartmouth Institute; the State of NH Health and Human Services; the Endowment for Health, the Healthy New Hampshire Foundation, the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund of the NH Charitable Foundation, Delta Dental, and the Health Resources and Services Administration of the USDHHS. Many other partnerships have been built over the years with organizations including the New England Rural Health Round Table, the New England Telehealth Consortium, NH Legal Assistance, Community Health Access Network, Southern NH AHEC, and the National Alliance of the Mentally Ill-NH (NAMI-NH). Members of the Consortium include: Ammonoosuc Community Health Services, Androscoggin Valley Hospital, Androscoggin Valley Home Care Services, Cottage Hospital, NH Catholic Charities, Center for New Beginnings, Family Resource Center, Coos County Family Health Services, City of Berlin Health and Home Health Nursing, Dartmouth Medical School, Grafton County Nursing Home, Franklin Pierce Physician Assistant Program, Indian Stream Health Center, Littleton Regional Hospital, LRGHealthcare, Mid-State Health Center, The Morrison Nursing Home, NH Department of Health and Human Services, Northern Human Services, North Country Home Health and Hospice, 45th Parallel EMS, Personal Touch Home Care, Plymouth State University Center for Rural Partnership, ServiceLink of Grafton County, TriCounty Community Action Program, Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital, Weeks Medical Center and White Mountain Community College.

GREENFIELD -- – The Harry Gregg Foundation in Greenfield, NH, which provides funds to New Hampshire residents with disabilities announced a $15,000 grant from the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation (NHCF) to assist residents with disabilities from the towns of Colebrook, Berlin and surrounding communities. “The North Country is home to the highest number of elderly and disabled residents in the state and we want to make sure they’re getting the help they need,” said HGF President Don Shumway. “We’re very grateful to the Tillotson Fund and NHCF for this award.” The Harry Gregg Foundation makes grants to people in New Hampshire with disabilities for products and services that will improve their independence and quality of life. The foundation board of trustees meets four times a year to review applications. Grants are limited to $1200, but are often less due to the large DETAINEES from page one

waiver in as little as two weeks. As an initial step, U.S. Marshall Jamie Berry conducted an inspection of the Coos Jail on June 30. Hamelin said the facility passed the inspection. Coos would not be the first county in the state to enter into such an agreement. Hamelin said several other counties have contracts to hold detainees - some for longer than 72 hours. In the past, Coos County, under Correctional Superintendent Norm Brown, accepted federal detainees. Hamelin said he sees the arrangement as positive for both parties. The county generates additional revenue

numbers of applications received. Past funding from the Tillotson Fund has provided a total of $30,000 to people in the North Country. “Through these grants, the Tillotson Fund has made a make a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of people in the North Country, improving individual lives and strengthening communities,” said Shumway. Applications can be completed and submitted on-line by going to www. crotchedmountain.org and clicking on the Harry Gregg Foundation link. Applicants should check the website for deadlines, meeting dates, and income and project guidelines before submitting an application. The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has been working to improve the quality of life in our communities since 1962. It builds and manages a collection of funds, currently totaling more than $400 million, created by individuals, families and corporations for general charitable purposes. and the federal agencies benefit from greater flexibility in housing detainees. County Commissioner Paul Grenier said he wanted the county to get the highest rate possible. Treasurer Fred King said he thought there was a lot of risk involved in accepting the detainees at the jail. He suggested the state prison in Berlin was a better fit. He also noted the transports are long distance. Commission Chair Burnham Judd asked Marcou and Hamelin to come back to the commission to discuss the matter further once they had more details.

Once upon a Berlin Time

1901 V

Hello fellow Berlinites. I would like to finish my brief history of the year 1901 in Berlin. Saturday, October 19, 1901, brought a disastrous fire to downtown, when the Bisbee Block, also known as the Hannaford House on Main Street was badly burned. This block was owned by F.F. Bisbee and occupied by Bailey’s Music Rooms, E. A. Steady and L.E. Cole Jeweler on the first floor. The upper two floors were run as a boarding house by two women named Mrs. Gray and Mrs. Gregory. The address at the time was 76 Main Street and this building would have stood between today’s (2011) Skinplicity and Maureen’s Boutique. Flames were discovered at about 3:15 am in the rear of this structure by Mrs. Gray, who occupied a room on the second floor. She then gave alarm to other occupants in the building. By this time though, the blaze had gained quite a bit of headway, making escape for some tenants very difficult. Someone on the street soon set up the cry of “fire” and M. R. Batchelder of the Sheridan House up the road, rushed to the corner of Main and Mason Streets and pulled the lever for the fire alarm box. For some unknown reason, the proper number did not ring and only the hose cart from company two came down the street. They were situated just above where today’s Albert Theater now stands. With the hose cart and ladders in place, some of the trapped people on the third floor were rescued from the dense smoke, thus saving their lives. The ladders were put up onto the shoulders of some of the firemen, so as to reach the third floor windows and allow the people to escape. Those saved were Annie King, Jennie Dion, E. Allen, L.W. Howe and John Quinlan. All of this was because of the yeomen work of Assistant Marshall Morin, Fire Chief Evans and Assistant George Kent. Mr. H.H. Lewis of Manchester had a room in the rear, where the fire got started and found his retreat through the hallway cut off. Having no recourse, Lewis jumped from a window on the third floor. His fall caused him to sustain a dislocated shoulder, a compound fracture of the left leg, injuries to both feet

Area of Bissbee block

Cross Machine

and lacerations to his face and head. Luckily, this man survived his ordeal. As for the block, it was repaired and rebuilt soon afterwards by a contractor named McGivney and Maguire. Today this area is an empty lot. The December 13, 1901 edition of the local paper had two interesting stories. One was about E. M. Cross and the other was about Berlin’s saloons. Councilman Dan Daley, who later became mayor of this city, asserted at the council meeting in early December that E. M. Cross had petitioned for an exemption from taxation, as the latter had intended to add to his foundry and machine shop which was now

Post Office

situated on Glen Avenue. This new addition to his business would cost Mr. Cross in neighborhood of $5,000, but would result in the employment of twenty five new employees. Cross expected to get this new construction work done by the spring of 1902. Daley said that the enlargement of an established plant such as Cross was building, would be of great importance in the development of this city. This was more so than the establishment of an average new industry with an equal payroll, because of Cross’s proven stability. Along with this, Mr. Cross had just added to his list of equipment a powerful new turning and boring mill, which materially increased his output capacity. E. M. Cross was thus exempted from taxation for a period of ten years for these improvements. I am not quite sure how all of this worked, but it must have certainly helped this man’s business grow. The E. M. Cross Machine Shop and Foundry see 1901 V page 5

is still operational today at the same address on Glen Avenue one hundred and ten years later. The matter of reopening the saloons, which had been shut down earlier in the year, came up for vote again in mid December and a hot debate ensued. The vote on the motion was a tie and Mayor Clement decided the subject with his negative vote. Thus, the saloons did not reopen, as long as his regime was in control. Finally, the reason why Green Square was originally called Post Office Square was because of Berlin’s newest post office that was just completed and about to open in this area in December of 1901. The local newspapers stated that this new building was a gem in every way, most commodious and attractive. It was such a contrast to the old cramped quarters and would be appreciated by all the patrons. Work on the interior had progressed so rapidly that Postmaster Bean expected to be able to deliver mail on Sunday December 22 from the new office, after moving in on Saturday night from the old office next door. The entire second story of this new two-story brick building (shown in the middle of the accompanying picture) was occupied by the post office. The building, erected by Mrs. C. E. Green, afforded the new post office a space of 23 by 72 feet. There were doors on either end of this building, with large beveled glass windows that opened into a commodious lobby. Speaking of the lobby, it was lighted by a three candle chandelier in the front and one at either side, opposite the so called “lock and call boxes”. There were also two three light chandeliers in the workroom and droplights in the front of the windows. The floor of this new post office building was made of narrow hardwood,

The historical society invites everyone to come visit the barns as they are not usually open to visitors. There will be several historical society members present to give the public an overview on their past and current preservation efforts and repairs. Proceeds from these yard sales go towards the purchase of heating oil to keep the Moffett House Museum & Genealogy Center open year round. Located at 119 High street in Berlin, it is the only museum in Coos County open year round five days a week, noon to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Donations are always accepted, for either the Moffett House Museum or the preservation of the barns. matched boards that were of birch, maple and had fine piece work. At the front of the north side was the stamp window and on the south side was the general delivery window. A door opened from the end of the lock box corridor into a spacious money order booth, with a long and handsome oak counter and was separated from the workroom by handsome brass grill work. There were two windows here, one for money orders and one for registered letters. Next to this area was Postmaster Bean’s private office, which was 8 by 12 feet in dimensions, furnished with oak chairs and an oak roll top desk. This newest of Berlin’s post offices had many more interesting decorations and furnishings when it was opened and would probably be a great historical building to visit, if it were still with us today. Instead this same general spot is occupied by today’s Eagle’s Club. One more interesting fact about this new Berlin postal building of 1901 is there were one thousand boxes in all, exceeding the capacity of the old post office by three hundred and fifty. Of these, six hundred were call boxes and four hundred were lock boxes. The lock boxes were in three sizes ranging in price from 35, 50 and 75 cents per quarter. The price of a call box was 25 cents per quarter. I am not exactly sure what happened to this building, but Berlin had grown so much in seventeen years that a new post office was built by 1918 on the corner of Main and Mason Streets. The old one either succumbed to fire or demolition and so the name of this area was now changed to “Green Square”. This completes my short history of Berlin during the year 1901. Of course, these stories were just highlights. Questions or comments email poof@ ne.rr.com.

The tournament is again being held at the Waumbek Golf Club in Jefferson. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. with a tee time of 8 a.m. and a shotgun start.

Volunteers will also be preparing for the tasty barbecue lunch that will be offered to all golfers after the tournament. Would you like to be a hole sponsor? To become a gold sponsor with a donation of $100 or more, your name and/or business will be displayed on a large golf cart or golf ball sign and placed at a tee box for all to see.

For all other cash donations received, your name and/or business will be acknowledged in the event’s leaflet, which will be put in all of the player’s goody bags. Please come and help us fund our scholarship program. Our lodge has been working hard over the past few years to raise money for this fund to present a scholarship to one Berlin High School and one Gorham High School graduate. The fee for playing is $50 per person or $200 per team. If you like to play golf, have fun, and help raise money for a worthy cause please join us at the Waumbek Golf Club on July 17.

He is scheduled to appear at the Berlin District Court on August 16, 2011. of Morin Shoe Store.

By Holiday Mathis those hours. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If there’s one thing you can’t stand, it’s desperation. You’ll sense this coming from a merchant or someone else today. You hate to feel pressured, and that’s why you’ll bolt at the first sign of manipulation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Listen carefully. Avoid putting words in another person’s mouth. You may think you know what he or she means to say, but communication will bring many surprises now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If your mind were a room, today that room would be crammed full of furniture and visitors, all busily intermingling and bumping against each other in the tight quarters. Do a clearing process. You need mental space. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t have to change everything at once. If you commit to doing too much, you’ll feel overwhelmed, which can be paralyzing. Instead, change one thing, and other changes will occur naturally. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your environment is chock-full of opportunity, though it takes a creative mind to see it and an ambitious heart to act on it. You possess both qualities. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 14). The next four weeks are busy with responsibilities and fun, and it will be hard to tell the difference between the two. New relationships strike up in August and January. Financial opportunity is featured in September and March. In February, you’ll be awarded for putting your talent to good use. Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 41, 20 and 1.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you have a song in your heart, you have to sing it. If you don’t, it becomes burdensome to carry it around. A song unsung turns into excess baggage. Express yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are emotionally flexible, so you won’t mind matching the mood around you as a means of relating to others. When you act as a kind of mirror, you validate the feelings of others. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Synchronization makes everyone feel calm and comfortable. When something throws a wrench in the timing, there will be an unsettling moment, followed by a speedy recovery and restructuring. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Try not to think of yourself as any one way. Chances are, you don’t even know what you are capable of. Your potential is limitless. Your personality is a vast combination of every human characteristic possible. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your desire to change your schedule is met with some resistance. The others who would be affected rather like things the way they are. But with a keen approach, you will ultimately conquer their resistance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are like a performer who is working for tips. But the tips you want boil down to verbal, emotional and practical support. It will help to “salt the tip jar” like the real pros do, putting the first few “dollars” in yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s not all cake and ice cream today -- you have some important work to do. You know when you’re at your best, and you would be wise to plan your day so that your most difficult tasks fall during

WIDOWED MOM’S UGLY BEHAVIOR IS SIGN THAT SHE NEEDS HELP

DEAR ABBY: I agree with your advice to “Driven Away in Georgia” (May 26), whose widowed mother has become so bitter, all eight of her children avoid her. As a clinical neuropsychologist who works with people with dementia and other aging-related problems, I’d like to share my thoughts. When a spouse dies, previously undetected early-stage dementia can become apparent to others. If the surviving spouse had pre-existing cognitive deficits, they may have been concealed by the competency of the other spouse. After the spouse dies, the structure and functional support once provided is suddenly removed. Symptoms then become apparent to family members. Another diagnostic option might be depression, which can often resemble dementia in elderly people. There are medications that can help manage and even slow down the progression of dementia, and early intervention may partially stabilize her at a higher level of functioning. You were right to recommend that family members become more involved rather than back away since this woman clearly needs either psychiatric or neurological intervention, or both. Thank you for shedding light on a very common problem that can touch any family. -- RICHARD FULBRIGHT, Ph.D., DALLAS DEAR DR. FULBRIGHT: Thank you for sharing your expertise and raising awareness for those with family members who are also struggling with similar issues. Read on: DEAR ABBY: In addition to concerns about dementia, the mother may be overwhelmed with living life as a widow. The eight surviving children should try to arrange for part-time hired help for her household chores that build up. If Mom is living on limited income, she may be crushed with financial stress. Perhaps it’s time for her to downsize to a more man-

ageable home. Instead of avoiding her, these “kids” need to find out exactly what problems are overwhelming their mother and get her help. -- CONCERNED SON IN LAUREL, MD. DEAR ABBY: “Driven” and her siblings could offer more by getting together, taking potluck dishes and meeting at Mom’s house over a weekend to split up her chore list. My own mom would say, “Many hands make labor light” -- and laughter makes the time pass quickly. If they can do this two or three times a year, Mom might feel more secure and relaxed. Her children also should take turns taking Mom out to dinner and a movie once a month. It will give her something to look forward to. When you lose someone who was involved in your daily life, it gets lonely. A tip to the kids: Imagine yourselves in your mom’s shoes instead of thinking about how much you have to do. Even a person with dementia, if this is the case, can be happy with the right help. -- NANCY IN PAYSON, ARIZ. DEAR ABBY: If each child contributed a small amount of money each month, they could hire a handyman to take care of the various projects Mom needs to be done. A cleaning person is also an option. Aging parents can be a challenge, but pulling away and spending less time with them will only lead to regrets later. -- LAUREN, SAN DIEGO DEAR ABBY: Anytime our family got together, or my folks were having special guests over, my mom would ask me to clean her house. I resented it, figuring since I could clean my home, Mom could clean hers. Mom passed more than a year ago, and I’d give ANYTHING to be able to clean house for her again. -- BILL IN TRASKWOOD, ARK.

North Country Men’s basketball league results BY JEAN LEBLANC

Thursday June 30 (2-0) Town and Country 102 vs (0-2) Cross Machine 56 Coming off of a close win over North Country Dental, The Town and Country Motor Inn team was firing on all cylinders. Steve Arsenault dominated the paint and led the team in scoring with 20 points. Justin Stroup stepped it up in the second half with 16 second half points. Tyler Baillargeon played hard in the loss with 19 points on the game. (2-0) Morneau Travel 81 vs (0-2) Tough Guys 47 Morneau Travel’s Damon Ness was back to his dominance of the 2010 season. Ness dropped home 25 points dominating the boards and was a major factor in Morneau Travel’s tenacious defense that held the Tough Guys to just 19 second half points. Jeremy Michalik had a great first game in a Tough Guys Jersey and helped make up for the missing Sam Aldrich. He combined with Sean Irving for 31 points. (2-0) Mr. Pizza 57 vs. (0-2) North Country THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

Dental 55 North Country Dental fell once again in a nail biter 57-55. Free agent pickup, Keven James, led all scorers with 28 points while Dan Enman’s 14 points were not enough to help the North Country Dental team get their first win. Mr Pizza was missing Jake Drouin, however Groveton’s rookie, Rod Swift, stepped up his play with 13 points in his first game in the NCMBL. (1-1) Isaacson Steel 57 vs. (1-1) Caron Building Center 56 In the most intense game of the night Isaacson Steel was looking for their first win. Trailing by 10 points for most of the game and by as much as 15, Anthony Bathalon, from Saint Johnsbury, dug deep and helped his team out of the rut scoring 30 points. Captain, Dan Rivard hit three clutch threes with under six minutes left to close the 10 point gap. The last three pointer gave the Isaacson Steel team a one point lead. Caron Building Center’s selfless play helped every player score and kept them in the lead for most of the game, but their defense could not hold on at the very end when the game came down to the final few

possessions. Friday July 1 (1-2) North Country Dental 102 vs. (0-3) Cross Machine 69 The highly touted North Country Dental team finally broke the ice and got their first win. Jake Drouin led the team with 22 points, but Dan Enman, Howard Cismouski, and Bobby Simpson were all close behind with 20, 20, and 18 respectively. Free agent Cody Laflame stepped up and tried to help his Cross Machine team with 12 points; 10 of these points coming in the second half. Jason Mercier and Tyler Baillargeon again kept up their consistent play with 17 and 19 points respectively. (2-1) Isaacson Steel 86 vs. (0-3) Tough Guys 79 Isaacson Steel got over the 500 mark after losing their first game of the season. Anthony Bathalon dominated the scoring with 42 points, the highest point total this year in the NCMBL. The Tough Guys fell late after keeping the game close right to the end. They were missing star guard Sam Aldrich and forward Jon Gamache (ankle injury). (3-0) Morneau Travel 75 vs. (1-2) Caron Building Center 49 Morneau Travel was the first team to reach the 3-0 mark this season. Groveton’s Jordan Wheelock played a great game netting six three point shots and a total of 25 points. They struggled in the first half with the tough zone defense of Caron’s Building Center, but missing Jamason Levesque, Sam Jenson, and Tyler Ramsdell(Shoulder injury) proved disasterous for the Caron Building Center offense. Bryar King worked hard and scored 18 in the losing effort. (3-0) Mr. Pizza 96 vs. (2-1) Town and Country 91 Keven James and Mr. Pizza were hot from beyond the three, hitting 16 three-pointers. James hit nine threes on the night and had the second 40 point game that was recorded this season. Mr. Pizza snapped T+C’s record as the only team that has never lost a regular season game. In the losing effort White Mountain’s guard, Evan Haskins, and Kennett’s free agent guard, Matt Ashnault, stepped up their play in the second half combining for 24 second half points. Come watch this week’s games this Thursday and Friday starting at 7 p.m.
