Berlin Station project Ron Paul pays visit to Berlin scrapped by investors BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN – The proposed Berlin Station biomass project is dead after negotiations with the wood-fired Independent Power Producers failed to reach an agreement. A spokesman for Cate Street Capital said the company had a June 30 deadline to come to an agreement that would see the six smaller biomass plants withdraw their state Supreme Court appeal of the power purchase agreement between Berlin Station and Public Service of N.H. “The June 30 deadline was real,” said Scott Tranchemontagne.
Tranchemontagne said Cate Street Capital needed to have the threat of litigation removed by that date so it could get its financing in place and meet its winter construction schedule. He said lenders will not get involved in the project without assurances that it won’t be delayed indefinitely. Tranchemontagne said negotiations between the parties have been going on for some time with Gov. Lynch and George Bald of the Department of Resources and Economic Development directly involved along with PSNH, and the Public Utilities see POWER page 8
BERLIN -- Republican Presidential hopeful Ron Paul made some brief stops in the Androscoggin Valley Thursday as part of a larger campaign swing through the first primary state. Making his third run for president, the U.S. Congressman from Texas landed at Milan airport and stopped for a short visit at the Milan Village Store. He made a quick visit to the Berlin Daily Sun office and then greeted a small group of supporters at the Northland Restaurant. From Berlin, Paul and his small entourage traveled to Conway for some meetings Friday morning. Paul noted the Berlin-Gorham area is not the only part of the country suffering from the recession. Other parts of the country are also in bad shape. “We have a very weak economy,” he said. Paul argues for limited government with fewer regulations and low taxes. He said the country must get control of the

State police celebrate 74 years BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
CARROLL — Members of the law enforcement community and dignitaries gathered at the NH State Police’s northernmost barracks on Friday to celebrate 74 years of that agency’s service to the citizens of New Hampshire. The event was commemorated with a few short speeches and a brief overview of the history of the state police as well as congratulations and accolades from elected officials and their representatives. Of course no birthday celebration would be complete without cake and this one was no different. Once the small ceremony was complete everyone in attendance was invited inside the barracks for refreshments. Joining the State Police to celebrate were members of various law enforcement agencies in the Troop F area, as well as retired NHSP Colonels Paul O’Leary and Lynn Presby, Standards and Training Director Don Viddum, Commissioner of Safety John Barthelmes, NHSP Commander,
Colonel Robert Quinn, Executive Councilor Ray Burton, and Chuck Henderson from Senator Jeanne Shaheen’s office. The ceremony began with the presentation of the flags and Troop F Commander Todd Landry offered the greeting. Sgt. Robert Terhune shared the agency’s history, which includes roots in the North Country. The push for a state police division began in 1869, Terhune explained, in response to municipal departments picking and choosing which laws to enforce. A specific gap came in enforcement of drinking laws. The initial legislation failed to pass, but in 1931 the effort was renewed as the automobile became commonplace and a need for criminal investigators was realized. Legislation finally made its way through the governing body in 1937, creating the NHSP on July 1 of that year. Terhune noted that early troopers patrolled using Harley Davidson motorcycles and a few Chevy sedans and the agency’s first Superintendent was George Col-

No need for a key chain SAN FRANCISCO (NY Times) — Front pockets and purses are slowly being emptied of one of civilization’s most basic and enduring tools: the key. It’s being swallowed by the cellphone. New technology lets smartphones unlock hotel, office and house doors and open garages and even car doors. It’s a not-too-distant cousin of the technology that allows key fobs to remotely unlock automobiles or key cards to be waved beside electronic pads at office entrances. What’s new is that it is on the device more people are using as the Swiss Army knife of electronics — in equal parts phone, memo pad, stereo, map, GPS unit, camera and game machine. The phone simply sends a signal through the Internet and a converter box to a deadbolt or door knob. Other systems use internal company networks, like General Motors’ OnStar system, to unlock car doors. Because nearly everyone has a cellphone, a number of start-ups, lock companies and carmakers are betting on broad acceptance of the technology. Schlage, a major lock maker, markets a system that lets homeowners use their mobile phones to unlock their doors from miles away, and manage their home heating and air-conditioning, lights and security cameras. Customers buy locks that are controlled by wireless radio signals sent from an Internet-connected box in their home.

U.S. military deaths in Iraq.
Fears rise with arrests in restive Syrian city BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Syrian security forces on Monday made their largest incursion in the central city of Hama since withdrawing after a bloody crackdown in early June, arresting at least several activists and anti-government protesters before retreating again to the outskirts, according to residents and eyewitnesses. One resident said as many as 65 had been arrested. About 20 military vehicles and sev-
eral buses carrying armed men in plain clothes entered the city early in the morning, yelling praise of President Bashar al-Assad and conducting house-to-house raids before retreating to the outskirts of the town. Residents said that there was a buildup of the forces there and that neighborhood resistance groups were organizing in the face of a possible military advance . Omar Habbal, a pro-democracy activist
from Hama, said that residents tried to block the convoys of security forces as they entered from several directions, throwing stones at them and setting up roadblocks and barricades. “People started praying loudly, and the whole city woke up to defend against the raid,” Mr. Habbal said. “People set up barricades with tires, stones and trash containers in each neighborhood.”
Carmakers, White House S&P warns that bank plan haggling over mileage rules would cause Greek default WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The Obama administration and the auto industry are locked in negotiations over new vehicle mileage and emissions standards that will have a profound effect on the cars Americans drive and the health of the auto industry over the next decade and beyond. Depending on the stringency of the standard, the deal could also reduce global warming emissions by millions of tons a year and cut oil imports by billions of barrels over the life of the program, cornerstones

of President Obama’s energy policy. The administration is proposing regulations that will require new American cars and trucks to attain an average of as much as 56.2 miles per gallon by 2025, roughly double the current level. That would require increases in fuel efficiency of nearly 5 percent a year from 2017 to 2025. The standard would put domestic vehicle fuel efficiency on a par with that in Europe, China and Japan, saving consumers billions of dollars at the pump.
PARIS (NY Times) — Greece risks being judged in default on its debt obligations if banks are forced to bear part of the pain, Standard & Poor’s said Monday, suggesting that current proposals for rescuing the euro zone’s weakest member may have to be reconsidered. In particular, a plan proposed by the French government and banks “could require private sector debt restructuring in a form that we would view as an effective default,” S.&P. said in a statement. The rating agency also said it was cutting its long-term rating on Greece three notches deeper into junk territory, to CCC from B. Euro-zone finance ministers agreed over the weekend to provide Athens with financing of 8.7 billion, or $12.6 billion, from the $110 billion bailout agreed to last year, to help the Greek government function through the summer. The new aid eliminates the prospect of a near-term default.

Bank of America thriving in N.H. BY DENNIS PAISTE THE UNION LEADER
MANCHESTER — Mortgage foreclosure issues have dogged Bank of America nationally, with the latest bad news Wednesday in an $8.5 billion settlement with investors who bought mortgage-backed securities from the bank’s Countrywide unit. The settlement, which requires court approval in New York state, was
part of $20 billion in mortgage-related expenses that Charlotte, N.C.-based Bank of America will write off in the second quarter, while heading toward an expected $8.6 billion to $9.1 billion quarterly loss. But Bank of America in New Hampshire has a different story to tell, focused on a stable market share, growth in deposits and lending and a charitable footprint that makes a difference in the Granite State.

Correct team spelling not on my bucket list To the editor: Thank you for responding to my letter Mr. Markee (oops…Marquis)! Anyone who knows me knows that I am neither a vindictive or facetious person. I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed by Boston sports writers at a young age. I believe the relationship between Boston and Ted Williams was a love/ hate relationship. I was not privileged enough to see Ted Williams’ last game but I remember reading that his final words were, “Playing in Boston has been the best years of my life.” No matter what city you are in …the media is the media…it is what it is! When you play in a city like Boston or New York…your life becomes very high pro-
file. As citizens of the United States we do not have access to a lot of press in Canada. I am sure, things are the same way there as they are here…except they only play one sport…hockey! As far as learning how to spell “CanadiAns” correctly….. sorry…not on my “bucket” list! Anyway, my brother knows better than to try and educate me on anything concerning the Montreal Canadians! Seeing the Bruins win another Stanley cup was on my bucket list! Aaaaahhh, now I can die happy! Oh and by the way…not sure if you were being facetious or if it was a typo…but the name is Kingsley….not Kingley, and I will definitely keep the faith! Faith Kingsley Berlin
Thanks for sharing in my retirement party To the editor: Thank you to everyone who shared in my recent retirement party. Thank you to the great AVH staff for making sure I got there. Thank you to Pat Mac-
Queen and all my friends for a fun roast. And thank you to Sue, Pam and Andrea for planning all the fun. You are always the best in my book! Laura Viger Berlin

If there was ever a sunset worth remembering, it is happening tonight. It is the 21st of June and the signature of the summer solstice, that brief moment just about half way through the year. I don’t remember a time that we have welcomed the warmth and lack of rain as much as we have this year, though middle age memories can and do play tricks. Tonight, from my porch and at just before eight o’clock, the sun melted like butter into the sky behind Giant’s Stairs; and while it still had another half hour before it would slip behind the western horizon beyond, I could sense a deep sigh marking the end of its triumphant annual march northward. Yes, it will still hang there for a few days brightening the evening sky before retreating south again; at first leisurely and at the imperceptible pace of a slow drain. What is summer, after all, but our annual time of respite from the regimen of school for our youth, or the stress of the workplace for those who actually get a summer vacation, and from the relentless need in much of the northern hemisphere, to simply stay warm. For most of us and for about 10 weeks, give or take, things around us feel different. There is a lightness to just about everything, a sensation that lingers for a while; if only for the long sweet evenings when we can postpone dinner and allow ourselves to be immersed in the varied activities, or peacefulness, which surround these, the longest days of the year. It is strikingly true that for many of us, summer instead means longer hours, more and hotter work, and more than occasionally, a lack of appreciation for what it is that we all must do to make our visitors happy. Would that we could be visitors, too, as it is when we leave home and travel elsewhere. Everyone wants to be treated as a human even as the traffic builds, tempers rise, and the lines grow long. Summer is supposed to be the magic time. Through most of the 20th Century, it was an annual time set aside for R&R, for factory closings, and for a lazy response to the rising heat. Up here it became a time for being outdoors at last, a freedom which usually came
after June 15 and the grateful lifting of the black fly curtain. This remains true, more or less, as even tonight I didn’t have to screen the dogs for the tiny black devils before coming in from helping me tend the grill. Tonight is a monumental night, though few notice or acknowledge it. Our old tired earth has done its very best to offer us sun and warmth and tonight, as it does every year, it has at last run out of steam. Imagine if this cycle were not so; that the sun trudged still further north and August nights ended at 10 p.m. Just ask the folks at the Arctic Circle how that feels. In the end, our routines are fine, and familiar, and reassuring, indeed. Now, as the sun sets and the cooler air magically pours back down into our valley and through our open screens, we are reminded again of a cycle our ancestors celebrated in their own subtle ways. We marvel at how much we are still at the whim of the seasons and the sometimes fickle path of the sun. Like our visiting tourists, we are, in turn, transient guests on this earth which will go on spinning with or without us. All we can do is react, and remember, and bask in this once a year moment when as at the old game at the fair, the big red ball reaches the bell at the top, then pauses, and then drops back down again. Thankfully we have two months or so before it really hits home. So rush to the river or the falls. Pack the picnic lunch and wander somewhere. Drop the top on the Jeep and don’t worry about the threat of rain. Play with the children in what is still, for them, a new and magical world. Sit for a time with a nearly immobile senior citizen by a lake somewhere, and ask them about the stories of their youth. Take a day off from lugging the server’s tray or pounding the cash register and remember why it is that you moved, or have stayed, here. Summer is the warmest, lightest, best time in our lives if we, now and then, can substitute earning with living. In this view, on these shortest nights of the year, we may find something that we thought we were missing. Tim Scott lives in Jackson.

Susan Ferre to perform at St. Kieran Arts Center
BERLIN Internationally acclaimed master organist, Susan Ferré, will be featured at St. Kieran Arts Center on Thursday, July 7 at 7 p.m. in a special evening of storytelling and organ music interpreting her original work, “A Walled City of Gold”. A discussion and reception with follow. Tickets are $12 adults/$6 students. Everyone is welcome. Come join us this Thursday for Susan Ferré’s latest creation performed on the St. Kieran historic Hook and Hastings organ. Prepare to be amazed as Ferré incorporates her energetic organ style with a fascinating tale about the mythical “Walled City of Gold”. As you may have guessed, this will be no ordinary organ concert, and Susan Ferré is no ordinary performer. Yes, you will hear a wide variety of organ pieces, but they will be woven beautifully into the fictional yet provocatively relevant story-line, which takes place in the French Pyrenees mountains. Are you intrigued yet? Ferré explains that “the storyline both informs and creates a context for the various organ pieces, all perfectly delightful in and of themselves, but beautifully enhanced by their new placement within ideas and emotions relevant to our current lives. A resident of Berlin, Ferré will be assisted by her husband, Dr. Kenneth Charles Lang, a local physician at Coos County Family Health, who is also a passionate musician. Ferré maintains an active concert career, having performed widely in Europe, including three visits to Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, Scandinavia, Brazil, Canada, and throughout the United States. She has served the faculties of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Washington, Southern Methodist University, Perkins School of Theology, University of North Texas and the University of Paris at Vincennes. For more than twenty years Ferré directed the Texas Baroque Ensemble, which brought distinction to performances of little known works on original instruments. She holds degrees from Texas Christian University and the Eastman School of Music. A Fulbright Scholar, recipient of the Diplome d’Orgue et Improvisation from the Schola Cantorum in Paris, as well as the Doctor of
Musical Arts degree from University of North Texas, Susan Ferré was honored with a Distinguished Alumna award from that university in 2001. Her most recent recording includes “Stories From the Human Village: War and Peace,” which has received enthusiastic critical acclaim and Gold status from Radio Indy. Susan Ferré is passionate about sharing her love of classical music and early instruments and is the founding director of Music in the Great North Woods and the annual multi-venue Big Moose Bach Festival on Labor Day Weekend. This program is sponsored by Music in the Great North Woods and is made possible with support of the NH State Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation/North Country’s Art Ventures Fund, an Anonymous Fund, Libby Family Fund, North Country Region Community Fund and the Stanton and Elizabeth Davis Fund.

AVH Surgical Associates
AVH Surgical Associates is pleased to announce two new services available at the AVH Professional Center: Laser Aesthetics and the Vnus Closure Procedure. Performed by the highly-skilled General Surgeons of AVH Surgical Associates, outpatient laser aesthetic procedures include, among others, hair removal, facial rejuvenation, pigmentation and lesion and tattoo removal. The Cynosure EliteTM aesthetic laser is a comprehensive hair removal system which removes unwanted hair while maintaining patient comfort. The innovative new laser combines two different laser wavelengths in one system, allowing our practitioners the ability to target and remove hair on any type of skin, on any part of the body. The anti-aging skin rejuvenation fractional laser system is now proving to be the gold standard in the cosmetic laser dermatology market, helping to reduce wrinkles, treat scars
and improve overall skin texture, pigmentation and redness. The Vnus Closure Procedure is another exciting new offering at the AVH Professional Center. Clinically proven, it treats varicose veins and their underlying cause, venous reflux, with little or no pain. Offering less bruising and pain than traditional vein stripping surgery, physicians close the diseased vein by inserting the Closure catheter into a vein and heating the vein wall using temperature-controlled RF energy. After the vein is closed, blood then naturally returns to the healthy veins. Patients can typically walk away from the procedure and be back to everyday activities – either at home or work – within a day. The procedure is covered by many health insurance companies. For information about either of these procedures or any other offerings of AVH Surgical Associates, please call (603) 752-7750.

Why Sensitive Teeth? The pain just from rinsing with water can send patients straight to the ceiling. There are many reasons for sensitive teeth; brushing, food choices, and exposed root surfaces. Depending on the reason for sensitivity, the list of procedures and products to help decrease this problem is extensive. Tooth whitening is a common reason. Some patients are very susceptible to sensitivity during this process. Some patients cannot finish the at-home treatment because of hypersensitivity caused by the whitening agent. Another cause is specialty toothpastes. Stain removing toothpastes are often abrasive and can remove protective layers of fluoride-rich enamel. Patients who clench their teeth
during intense exercise or in stressful situations or who grind their teeth also may have tooth sensitivity. Cold water, air, or foods may be unbearable for them. Unbalanced occlusal forces may also contribute to this kind of pain. A diet high in acidic foods such as citrus fruits and tomatoes is also a reason. A question about frequent stomach upset or heartburn may help determine that the patient has gastroesophageal reflux disease. If caries is concurrent with the heartburn symptom, close monitoring of the teeth,possibly quarterly, is imperative. Dr. Roland Montminy has been in practice at 73 Main Street since 1973.

Six Ways to Feel Happier, Be Healthier A good mood not only influences how you feel today, it can have a powerful impact on your health for years to come. Scientists urge us to be as attentive to our moods and attitudes as we are to our physical health. Two recent studies underscore the importance of that advice. “Happiness is no magic bullet, but the evidence is clear and compelling that it changes your odds of getting disease or dying young.” A paper in Current Directions in Psychological Science notes that a positive attitude can protect
against poor health later in life and may be a powerful antidote to stress, pain and illness. Another study, published in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being, found that happy people tend to live longer and experience better health than their unhappy peers. “Happiness is no magic bullet,” says University of Illinois psychologist Ed Diener, the lead author, “but the evidence is clear and compelling that it changes your odds of getting disease or dying young.” Eating well, exercising, not smoking and getting see HEALTHIER page 8

environment to start a business today than the United States. Paul said he would reduce foreign spending and bring American troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan. He said the United States can not afford the expensive wars. He noted there is a lot of wasteful spending, citing as an example the $20 billion that has been spent air conditioning tents in Iraq. Paul also opposes U.S. involvement in Libya. Paul was in the news last week for legislation he cosponsored with Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank to remove marijuana from the list
of federally controlled substances. Paul called it a states rights issue for him and noted some states allow medical use of marijuana. He said the states control alcohol and can control marijuana as well. Paul said he believes the U.S. war on drugs has been a failure and one result is the large number of nonviolent inmates incarcerated in U.S. federal prison. he said the United States has five percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of its prisoners. Paul shares many libertarian views and in fact ran for president in 1988 as a Libertarian. Before going into politics, he worked as an obstetrician and gynecologist. His son, Rand Paul, is a U.S. Senator.

major economic initiative. The $274 million project would have hired up to 400 people during the 27-month construction phase. Once up and running it would employ 40 people and pump $25 million into the local economy annually. The project would have generated $2.5 million in New Market Tax Credits for the North Country. It would also be a boost to ailing North Country businesses like Isaacson Structural Steel, which filed last month for bankruptcy protection. “All of that is gone,” said Tranchemontagne. “Now everybody really loses.” The PUC last month approved the revised 20-year PPA between Berlin Station and PSNH. The IPPs filed a motion for a rehearing before the PUC and an appeal before the Supreme Court. The PUC rejected the motion for a rehearing. The six IPPs that have appealed the Berlin Station power purchase agreement to the Supreme Court are Bridgewater Power Company L.P., Pinetree Power Inc., Pinetree Power-Tamworth Inc., Springfield Power LLC, Whitefield Power & Light Company and Indeck Energy-Alexandria, LLC.

Commission. Local officials were hopeful the parties would come to an agreement when they met last week. Tranchemontagne said PSNH agreed to 20-month power purchase agreements with the four small biomass plants that do not currently have power agreements but sell power on the spot market. He noted the short-term agreements were one of the key requests of the IPPs. “The power agreements were there. The deal was in place,” he said. Tranchemontagne said the negotiations broke down when the IPPs asked for additional concessions including a cash payment over and above the power agreements. “The IPPs got greedy and started asking for more,” he said. With no agreement in place, Tranchemontagne noted everyone loses, not just Cate Street Capital. He said the small biomass plants will not get the short-term power purchase agreements they claim to need to be viable. He said the North Country will lose out on a

Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow comes to Gorham SHELBURNE --If you have gold, silver, antiques or other rare collectibles lying around your house, the Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow wants to see them! The Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow is making a stop in Town & County Motor Inn in Shelburne this week in search of rare and unique collectibles. The roadshow open Tuesday at 9 a.m. and runs through Saturday. The company states that, “Collectors have set aside $300,000 to be distributed to area residents for their items during the free five day event.” A few recent finds for collectors have included a rare gold coin collection purchased for $107,000 and a letter written by George Washington to the doctor of his wife, expressing his disdain for the doctor’s treatment of Mrs. Washington. Also, in a recent show in Ohio, a local resident brought in a letter
from Abraham Lincoln that she had owned for 15 years, thinking that it was a fake. Our experts were able to determine that the letter was authentic and she walked out of the show $25,000 richer. “Collectors are very serious about their hobby and will pay a lot of money for the items they are looking for. Nearly all coins and paper currency, vintage jewelry, war memorabilia, musical instruments and toys made prior to 1965 are highly sought after by collectors,” said Enright. “ With both hitting all-time highs and with the state of the economy, people everywhere are cashing in broken chains, necklaces and rings and taking advantage of the market.” The Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow is able to offer fair prices because it has its own refinery operation. Refineries typically do not do business with the public, rather they deal with precious
metal accumulators like jewelry shows, pawnshops, dental practice and industrial facilities that trade with some form if precious metal. All local are businesses that deal with precious metal are encouraged to call ahead and make appointment with one of our representatives. No appointment is needed for the general public. The event is free and there is no limit to the number of items.

By Holiday Mathis younger than you are, which can be a good thing. However, there is an opportunity today to earn the respect of your peers, and a serious approach will be best. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may notice something amiss in your social interaction with others, but it’s best not to apologize, complain or explain. The classiest move is to wait until you can fix it in private. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A friend who comes into your living space will have interesting things to say about it. This will allow you to look at your environment with fresh eyes and make decisions about what, if anything, to change. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will be feeling generous in every way and will contribute much more than you had planned to. You’ll walk away from the exchange feeling richer, and that’s how you’ll know it was the right move for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll get a chance to ask questions and will be careful not to probe too deep. You are also sensitive about not mentioning the past mistakes of others. You understand human frailty. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 5). You’ll take excellent care of yourself, realizing that success is easier when you look and feel your best. Your connection to nature, especially to animals, will guide your August activities. September and October bring financial moves that will help you with your long-term goals. November is the most romantic month. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 14, 49, 24 and 11.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You feel the pressure as much as anyone around you, but instead of feeling squeezed out, you interpret the sensation as a push in the right direction. Momentum is on your side. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While the sun is up, you’ll convey the appropriate sense of seriousness in all you do. People will look to you for behavioral cues. When the sun goes down, it takes your seriousness with it. Evening will be light and lively. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are emotionally fluid now, moving through different states without getting hung up for too long on any one feeling. And the day offers a sufficient variety of stimuli. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve heard the old adage that you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have. You won’t go wrong following this advice now. The style and quality of clothing you wear will make a difference. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some people are takers. Their mentality may be hard for you to understand, but it is just as necessary to the world balance as your giving mentality. Stay aware. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Feedback is a gift, although, unfortunately, not the kind that can be exchanged for something you like better. Whether or not you asked for a critique, you’ll get one and find the value in it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You should in no way feel guilty for spending money to look your best. When you feel good about your image, you’ll make a lasting impression. Clothing and accessories are an investment in your future. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You give the impression of being much

READERS RUN HOT AND COLD ON TOILET BRUSH IN DISHWASHER
DEAR ABBY: The letter from “Turned Off in Texas” (May 18) caught my attention. While I agree that putting a toilet brush in the dishwasher with the dishes was unexpected and off-putting -- we don’t ever want to link the toilet with our food -- I think your answer showed a little overreaction. Running the dishes in another cycle should take care of any concerns as long as the water is hot. Studies have shown that the inside of the average public toilet bowl is not as bacterialaden as a public drinking fountain. Our disgust is emotional, not likely fact-based. As I told a colleague during his wife’s baby shower, you have to believe in the power of soap and water or you won’t survive parenthood. While it’s worthwhile for “Turned Off” to tell his stepdaughter that this practice is unacceptable to him, it is no reason not to eat at her house -- unless she’d not cooking food properly. -- FACTS OVER EMOTION IN MIAMI DEAR FACTS: Thank you for your letter. Frankly, I was as grossed out by what “Turned Off” saw his stepdaughter do as he was. So it surprised me to find that many of my readers weren’t as affected by the “ew” factor. Read on: DEAR ABBY: It’s possible that what “Turned Off” perceived to be a toilet brush was never used for cleaning a toilet. I bought a brand-new toilet scrubber to keep under the kitchen sink. I use it only for cleaning the garbage disposal. Afterward, I wash it in the sink, not the dishwasher. Let’s give the stepdaughter the benefit of the doubt. Things are not always what they appear to be. -- NOT DISGUSTED IN ARCADIA, CALIF. DEAR ABBY: I can top the letter from the gentleman who
said his stepdaughter, after cleaning his house when his wife fell ill, put the toilet brush in the dishwasher. My daughter has a close friend who told her she and her husband put the cat’s litterbox in the dishwasher when they want to clean it. I was mortified, as was my daughter. You’d never guess it -- she’s an otherwise clean-appearing person. Well, needless to say, we no longer eat at this woman’s home. -- ANONYMOUS IN CONNECTICUT DEAR ABBY: I clean houses for a living and I thought it was a smart way to wash that scrubber. The dishwasher uses scalding hot water that kills all germs. In addition, most toilet cleansers contain bleach, so there is little chance germs could survive on the brush. If you’re still concerned, you could run it through the dishwasher separately. -- TERESA IN TENNESSEE DEAR ABBY: I am a retired doctor. I have been in the Army, slept in the woods and eaten three-day-old food -- so I know a little bit about germs. The hot water and soap will take care of any bacteria on the brush. (It’s unaesthetic, but not unsanitary.) The brush will be as clean as your hands are when you wash them after using the toilet. I would be happy to eat off the plates that came out of that dishwasher. -- DR. M. IN NAPLES, FLA. DEAR ABBY: We bought a new toilet seat a few years back, and on the instructions it stated that it was “dishwasher safe.” That made me think at the time, “Who in their right mind would remove a toilet seat in order to run it through the dishwasher, and why would they want to?” -- L.O.L. IN ANDERSON, S.C.
