Selectmen ask ZBA to revisit variance BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
GORHAM — The Gorham ZBA, last week, acted a motion from the selectmen that they revisit a recent decision to grant a variance. “Allowing a variance to construct on an unbuildable lot in these un-built paper subdivisions creates precedent for other property owners to seek similar relief which is evidenced by this application,” the selectmen wrote. “This will eventually result in demands for municipal services, e.g. new roads, for homes constructed on these paper subdivision lots.” The Zoning Board of Appeals had granted a variance on June 9 to Richard Briggs, who had requested a frontage variance in order to construct a garage on a 100-foot by 100-foot lot on Valley Road. Tax maps show Valley Road as a proposed road off of Spring Road in the area off Jimtown Road. According to the board, Briggs had been previously denied a variance for lot size to build a home on the parcel. Because of its zoning, the lot would have to be 1 acre or more for a house to be constructed on it without a variance. Required road frontage is 100feet on a public street, since Valley Road exists only on paper and is otherwise little more than a wood-
land path, the lot — along with dozens of others in the area — does not meet the frontage requirement. Although some members of the ZBA were disappointed no representative of the selectmen was present at their Aug. 4 meeting to make their argument for a rehearing, the group unanimously agreed to rehear the case on the merits of the argument in the letter from the town fathers. In the written motion, the selectmen pointed to a lack of evidence in support of the variance in the application or the minutes of the initial hearing. They also argued that the standards outlined in the RSA for granting a variance had not been addressed. In light of this, they asserted that the ZBA was in error when they granted approved the application. ZBA member PJ Cyr said that after reading the letter he realized the selectmen brought up some points he hadn’t considered when he cast his vote in favor of the variance. He told the rest of the board he would not be averse to rehearing the case. When asked what she believed the selectmen’s largest concern was with their decision, Michelle Lutz, Fiscal/Administrative Assistant, said that it was her opinion that the lack of conditions on the see VARIANCE page 6

Berlin man scales 48 peaks BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN — It took 10 years, but just one day shy of his 71st birthday, Al Morrissette summited his 48th 4,000 foot peak. While understandably proud of his accomplishment, Al — whose trail name is Yes-I-Can — credits the support of family and friends for his ability to undertake and complete the feat. “My thanks and gratitude to all who helped and encouraged me to accomplish this goal,” Al said. see SCALES page 6

BERLIN — A local dog walker was reportedly mugged in broad daylight on Main Street last week. Peggy Wiggins, 53, of Berlin, told police she was sitting in Gill’s Park during the late morning hours on August 1, when a man snatched more than $100 from her hand. “I’m so flustrated with it,” she said. “It’s just a shame.”

Heavy trucks to be subject to new rules WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Big tractor-trailer trucks will have to get 20 percent more miles per gallon by the 2018 model year under the first-ever fuel economy rules for heavy vehicles, announced Tuesday by President Obama. The rules mimic the “light duty” fuel economy standards for cars and sport utility vehicles that have been in place since 1975. But they are more complex, tailored to cover vehicles including garbage trucks, which must get a 10 percent improvement, and pickups and vans too big to be covered by the existing rules, which must now make a 15 percent improvement. The rules are allowed under a law signed by President George W. Bush in 2007, but it has taken until now to devise the program. And Mr. Obama, at a time when there is substantial opposition to new environmental rules, said in a statement that the vehicle owners wanted their trucks to be regulated. “While we were working to improve the efficiency of cars and light-duty trucks, something interesting happened,” he said in a statement. “We started getting letters asking that we do the same for medium and heavy-duty trucks. They were from people who build, buy and drive these trucks.”
I won’t quit until I get run over by a truck, a producer or a critic.” —Jack Lemmon

Stocks end sharply lower amid fears about Europe
U.S.: Strike killed Taliban who downed helicopter
NEW YORK (NY Times) — Stocks on Wall Street finished steeply lower on Wednesday as the financial sector dragged down the broader market, in a sharp reversal from the rally of the previous day. Financial stocks were down by more than 7 percent at about 4 p.m., in part because
of fears about their exposure to French banks as shares in those institutions dropped during European trading. The broad stock market was affected because big countries like France in the heart of Europe might now be called upon to bail out their own banks as well as economies
like Spain and Italy. “Today it’s fears about French banks and France,” Michael Gapen, United States economist at Barclays Capital in New York, said, singling out the French bank Société Générale, whose shares fell about 18 percent. “SocGen is the name that is really driving trading.”
Prime Minister threatens sustained police measures in London riots LONDON (NY Times) — With 10,000 additional police officers deployed across London, and trouble flaring in other cities, Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday threatened sustained police measures including the possible use of water cannons to curb the looting and arson that have shaken many parts of Britain for four consecutive days. He was speaking after a night of relative calm in London offset by an apparent surge of violence in regions stretching from the northwest through
the English Midlands to new areas farther south. Cameron told reporters outside 10 Downing Street that a police “fightback” was proving effective to prevent a repetition of the worst of the violence, which began on Saturday. He had earlier presided over a second meeting of the so-called Cobra committee, an ad hoc group that deals with national security crises, as the authorities said hundreds of people had been arrested overnight, many of them in major cities outside London.

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — An American airstrike has killed the Taliban fighters believed responsible for shooting down a Chinook helicopter, killing 38 people including 30 American military personnel, the senior commander in Afghanistan said Wednesday. The commander, Gen. John R. Allen of the Marines, said the military in Afghanistan had tracked the insurgents after they shot down the helicopter on Saturday, most likely with a rocket-propelled grenade. A group of insurgents, numbering fewer than 10, were together as the location was hit by an F-16 strike, General Allen said. The airstrike occurred Monday, Pentagon officials said. In a video briefing to the Pentagon from his headquarters in Kabul, General Allen said the Chinook helicopter on a weekend mission also took small arms fire as it entered the Tangi Valley in Wardak Province, just west of Kabul; an investigation has been started to determine the exact cause of the crash.

Dartmouth-Hitchcock to offer early retirement LEBANON — DartmouthHitchcock, the state's secondlargest employer, will offer voluntary early retirement to 725 of its employees across the health system this month. The retirement will be offered to some non-clinical positions at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and at Community Group Practice sites in Concord, Manchester, Nashua and Keene, the system announced. Hospital spokesman Rick Adams said this is a move that has been in the works for a while, but the decision by the state to reduce Medicaid reimbursements has hurried the need to realign the workforce. "We are facing a $96 million budget deficit as we begin to put together our budget for 2012. The legislature's actions certainly didn't help, but it's not the driving force behind this offer," he said. Steve Pixley, a registered nurse with more than 20 years on the job, said he appreciates that his employer is offering early retirement as opposed to laying people off.
"I think we all realize it may take more than this to balance it out, but it gives me faith that at least they are trying to do their best to do it in a decent way," Pixley said, "It would be insane to cut clinical force right now, because we are full every day and it takes all of those people to do the job," he said. The election period for the early retirement option is Aug. 15 to Sept. 30. The package includes an enhanced pension benefit, the health system said in a statement. Letters will be sent out to eligible employees on Friday. Adams would not say how much the hospital expects to save from the early retirement offers. Dartmouth-Hitchcock said it has reduced its workforce by 300 employees in the past year, and a Adams said they couldn't guarantee there won't be more cutbacks or layoffs. Dartmouth-Hitchcock is one of 10 hospitals suing the state of New Hampshire over cuts in Medicaid reimbursement. —Courtesy of WMUR

Thank your Gorham garbage collectors To the editor: It is often good to get involved in issues that are for the good of all the people of Gorham. It is always worth the fight to change things that need changing. However, when you have formed your own coalition to go after everything the town has in its infrastructure you need to re-evaluate your positions. I know for a fact that the garbage pick-up we have in this town is second to none. We have good reliable workers who drive and pick up the garbage for Gorham They don’t get the recognition as some people do. They are the workers who go to work every day, shut their mouths and work hard to pick up our garbage and do their jobs and do it well. If you screw around with this towns garbage collection you’ll have garbage on the side of the road from Gorham to hell and back. “You can take that to the bank! I’ve seen it in other places, so have you! If certain people have their ways, we the citizens of this town, could be in big trouble. You don’t have to look very far to see that when an appliance in a house breaks down they have to pay $25 or so to bring it to the dump. Let’s just pay $5 or $10 for every bag of garbage! Is this what the coalition wants? I don’t think so! Garbage collection is money well spent! There is nothing wrong when you join a committee to better a department of the town. But when the fight turns to changing things
that can end up hurting the citizens of this small town I’ll be damned if I’ll stand idly by and let it happen. A man once said “don’t burn any bridges behind you, you might have to turn around and cross over them again”. Changes for the good are well appreciated. But another saying is, “if it ain’t broke, don’t try and fix it”. The town of Gorham Public works and garbage collection ain’t broke. Sometimes we get wrapped up in our own egos and go way out on a limb to fight issues that we shouldn’t be fighting over. This town needs to come together to solve its problems. Make the changes that will better a town and its citizens, not changes that will bring us all down. I’m not going down quietly. That is why I spoke u and wrote this article. We’ve all “got a dog in this fight”. Everyone should be proud of what they do. Some of us work in mills, some of us are teachers. Others work in prisons. Some own their own businesses. Some work independently at home. I recognize these people as well as the town employees. It is time to lay down the swords and move on. Leave well enough alone! This towns money for garbage collection is well spent. One final thought. In tough financial times of budget strifes maybe it is finally time to swallow the real tough pill which consumers 60-70 percent of a towns budget, the schools. Is it time to consider see COLLECTOR page 5

Once upon a Berlin Time Milan bridge, 1966
Hello fellow Berlinites. It seems like Mr. Arthur Napert, who had a fire in January at his White Mountain Lumber Company, was having a streak of bad luck, as he almost lost his life about two and one half months later. While driving across the 77 year old Milan Bridge early Sunday morning on March 20, 1966, it collapsed on Mr. Napert. The east side of the structure fell onto the ice in the Androscoggin River and part of it crushed Napert’s automobile, trapping him in it. As a result of his efforts to extract himself from the car, Mr. Napert suffered a coronary thrombosis. This didn’t stop him though, as he climbed over the fallen span and made his way in the darkness to a telephone. Once at the phone, he notified State Trooper Peter Roberts of his predicament. Napert had driven over the east span and was just starting onto the west span when it let go and crashed onto the frozen river. One of the steel supporting beams struck the top of Napert’s car, crushing the roof, but just missing the driver. Help came and Arthur was taken to the St Louis Hospital, where he was treated by Doctor Danais. Although he was reportedly doing well, Mr. Napert was confined to his hospital bed for one week. In a very short time, the state tore down the rest of the bridge and constructed a Bailey bridge to serve the people in East Milan and East Dummer, who now had to go to Berlin to cross the Androscoggin River. Emergencies and lots of traveling were a major concern of these citizens. The old span had stood since 1889 and records showed that it was built at a cost of $9,000 back then. I am not sure how long the Bailey bridge stayed in operation before a new permanent structure was put into place. It was certainly a close call for Mr. Napert and an inconvenience to many local people. In March of 1966, an application was filed by the Berlin Housing Authority for a preliminary loan for architects fees. This was the initial step in the development that would
take place on Cole Street for the elderly housing project. Urban Renewal Director Donald Mangine said that the capital cost of such development was to be met through bonds issued by the Berlin Housing Authority. The principle and interest would be taken care of by funds from the Federal Public Housing Administration. It was approved by the City Council and the agreement with the Housing Authority provided ten percent of the rents received by them would be paid to the city in lieu of taxes. This property was to be maintained by the Housing Authority once it was built and in place. These units are still standing and in operation on the corner of Cole and Green Streets today (2011) On April 13, 1966, an accident involving what was called an “avalauncher” and two forest service officials took place in Pinkham Notch. The instrument which was used for avalanche control was actually a rocket launcher and it exploded causing shrapnel wounds to District Ranger S. Goodrich and General District Assistant Leavitt Bowie. Both men were in their forChip Roberge ties and residents of Gorham at the time. Dr. Francis Appleton said that several pieces of metal had to be removed from both men, but described their condition as “very satisfactory”, reiterating that they were very lucky not to receive more serious wounds. This accident occurred as the two men were firing this launcher in order to bring down some dangerous snow formations in the bowl of Tuckerman Ravine. A rocket with a two pound charge had been placed in the barrel of the launcher, which see 1966 II page 5

known as “Chip”. The local paper headlines said that Roberge had been awarded the air medal and three oak leaf clusters for meritorious achievement in Southeast Asia (Vietnam). This citation said that between September 12 and November 24, 1965, “Chip” participated in more than 400 combat missions over hostile territory in support of allied ground troops. During all of these missions, Specialist Roberge displayed the highest order of air discipline and acted in accordance with the best traditions of the service. “By his determination to accomplish his mission in spite of the hazards inherent in repeated aerial flights over hostile territory and his outstanding degree of professionalism and devotion to duty, he has brought high honor upon himself, his organization and the military service”, the citation said. Roberge went to Vietnam in August of 1965 as a member of the First Cavalry Division (Air Mobile) of the 229th Assault Helicopter Battalion. He was 19 years old at the time; that being the average age of most Vietnam Veterans who served back then. Mr. Roberge, who still resides in Berlin, was in the battle of the IA Drang valley, which has been depicted in many books and the movie “We Were Soldiers”. I will continue with my 1966 Berlin history in my next writing. Questions or comments email email@example.com.

going regional? You all have a nice summer, where every you work! And the next time you see the garbage truck in front of your house say ‘hi’ and ‘thank’ them from saving you a lot of time and money. If you don’t like the town worker, the town hall workers, the cops, the what every sent a piece aloft using compressed gas. This rocket was ignited mechanically as it moved up the barrel. The accident happened when a malfunction in the pressure unit sent the rocket up the barrel far enough to ignite it, but not to send it clear. Thus, the rocket exploded in the barrel. There were several skiers on hand to watch the firing and one of them was also injured by the explosion, but he only suffered a minor scalp wound. Snow Ranger Brad Ray, who was in a forward position to observe the results, rushed over to furnish first aid and notified the base of the incident. The men were taken down the trail by a snow vehicle, met by Doctor Appleton and put into ambulances. This was the first year of operation for this rocket launcher, which could fire a charged projectile a distance of 1,400 yards. I wonder if they are still in use today or have they been replaced by some other way to remove dangerous avalanches. By April of 1966, the Vietnam War was in full bloom, with thousands of US military personnel fighting 12,000 miles from home. The city of Berlin had their share of young men and women serving in this country near the South China Sea. Many of them were decorated for bravery and six of them gave their lives, as depicted on the memorial at Glen Avenue. Among those decorated was SP/4 Harvey Roberge, 20 years of age.

MUGGED from page one
Wiggins describes the attacker as a tall, slim, good looking white male with short blond hair. She said he was young, clean and well-dressed. According to Wiggins’ account, the man was with three friends in a “beat up red sports car.” When his friends went in to Middle Earth, he stayed outside she said. Meanwhile, Wiggins was sitting on a park bench with a friend. She took out her money to pay a debt she owed her friend and before she could put her cash away, the man snatched it from her hand and ran. He rejoined his friends in the red car and sped away, she said. Sgt. Don Gendron of the Berlin Police said that police are looking through any available video surveillance on Main Street to try and identify the attacker. He noted, however, that muggings are not commonplace in the city and no additional incidents have been reported. “It’s kind of rare,” Gendron said. Gendron cautioned the public to be aware of their surroundings and asked anyone with information on this incident to call Berlin Police at 752-3131. VARIANCE from page one
variance had drawn attention. The selectmen noted in their letter that “there should be no less conditions on this property than were placed on the Debellis property in a previous case decided in 2011.” By placing numerous conditions on an abutting property that was granted a variance and then approving this one with no conditions the ZBA risked opening the door to future issues, she said. ZBA member Wayne Flynn agreed, noting that a variance goes with a property when it is sold and has no end. If the owner were to gain more property and merge it with the existing lot that had been granted a variance with no conditions he would be able to do as he wished with no stipulations, Flynn said.

“First and foremost, my wife, Marie; we did Tecumseh, but due to so-so knees she was unable to do any others.” He also thanked his daughter Carolyn, “who was not able to do any, but her enthusiasm of my progress was appreciated.” Al — an accountant who became semi-retired about five years ago — began his trek at age 61, when with his 16 year old granddaughter Samantha, he took on Mt. Jefferson. He said he was inspired by looking at the Whites all his life, and figured he “might as well do something that counts,” Al explained. “We did a few mountains with the kids when they were little,” Marie noted, so the family was not unfamiliar with hiking. On all of his hikes, Al was joined by at least one family member or friend. Ten of the peaks were climbed alongside Lynn Farnham, “the authority on the trails in the Whites,” he said. He remembered when the pair was hiking the 14.6 mile round trip up Isolation and it rained all the way down. Al said when it came time to cross back over the brook the rocks had disappeared. “Lynn’s conversation was limited to two words over and over — ‘keep walking.’” Lynn was also on the final hike, the 48th, up Mt. Adams. “Don’t believe the weather forecast, when they say late afternoon showers, it means all day,” Al said. He was joined on his Hale summit by his daughter Sue and grandson Jacob and Sue also joined him on his walk along the Presidentials. His daughter Tracy and grandson Isaac were companions on the hike up Cannon and Tracy also joined Al in the Pemigewasset Wilderness and up Mt. Willey, where he recalled a bold dove stole the food from their hands. Both Sue and
Tracy were on the Franconia Ridge with Al and he had hiking partners of the Kinney clan when he climbed Lafayette and Passaconway. The Hancocks were climbed alongside Josh Labonville, he said. Al made a point of thanking his physician Dr. Mitch Sullivan as well, saying that the doctor kept insisting he needed to walk. His walks brought him to many exciting summits, with the view from the Presidentials and Cannon Mountain were among the most stunning. While on the trails this self-described “slow-walker” always tried to be prudent in his excursions, putting off the final hike when weather delayed him. “I didn’t want to end up on the six o’clock news,” he said. While depending on the proper equipment and commonsense helped him make it through, it didn’t hurt to have luck on his side either. Al admitted that he had slipped a few times, but never fell and never needed more than a band aid to patch himself up. He said that over the 10 years he learned to lighten his pack and stay hydrated. He also enjoyed meeting and talking to people on the trail. He recalled being amused by a German who was flustered by the lack of a bear box at Full Goose shelter. Al said his family shared his accomplishment and they all celebrated with a birthday cake when he completed the final peak. His grandchildren are excited to join him as he takes on his next journey as well. “It’s always an honor to go out with your kids of grandkids,” he said. With the 4,000-footers behind him, Al said his next adventure is to complete the Appalachian Trail. He’s already started with 270 miles under his belt and 1,905 left to go.

ASHELIN, a band of five sisters from Newfoundland, Canada, takes center stage at St. Kieran Arts Center on Monday, August 15, at 7 p.m. as part of the August Celtic Mondays Series. Tickets are $15 at the door and $13 for Arts Center members. The young and harmonious band of five sisters - Cassy, Joesie, Kaliyan, Shaelin, and Thea, began singing and dancing to Newfoundland and Irish roots music as long as they can remember, while learning to play a stunning variety of instruments. Although they never expected their childhood passion for singing and music-making to be anything but family-focused, they were soon embarking on a musical journey that is winning them attention and fans around the world. Known for their sparkling vocals and intricate harmonies, Ashelin’s brand of folk roots and pop shines through their original songwriting and novel interpretations of traditional tunes. These five fresh talents, who can cast a spell over their audiences, are ready to take their place among the greatest talent Canada has produced. Since their first public performance in 1997, they have entertained thousands at such high profile events as the World Podium Influential Leaders series with guest speaker Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and a visit to Qatar for an audience with Queen Sheikah Mozah. ASHELIN was chosen to showcase Newfoundland culture through the eyes of an artist in a recent documentary film of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. The band’s original song “Song for Mariana” was a winner from over 600 contenders for David Suzuki’s “Playlist for the Planet,” a soon-to-
August 21st Couples Championship Scramble.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams
By Holiday Mathis bled people will gravitate toward you. They sense your empathic nature, and they will tell you their problems. Don’t worry about offering help. Your listening ears are help enough. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your innate managerial skills will be put to use. You’ll sense who is the best person for the job, and you’ll know just how to state things to make the job appealing to that person. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one can be 100 percent confident at all times. You may struggle with your own fears, doubt and skepticism, but keep pushing on anyhow. In the end, you’ll be victorious over these feelings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It will feel good to give to a loved one, especially when the person isn’t even asking. Also, on some deep level, you know that if you don’t watch out for the other person’s quality of life, it will go down for both of you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Not only will you be able to see into the future, but you’ll do so in vivid detail. All you have to do is close your eyes and imagine what will happen next. Use your gift to create the perfect action plan. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (August 11). You’ll dream big and then work backward to construct a framework for building that dream. Strong personal relationships are a source of fun and adventure in September. You’ll give a stellar performance in October. A quest to make the most of your money will help you afford a beautiful new lifestyle in January. Sagittarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 17, 20, 41 and 23.
by Darby Conley
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You lift the hearts and moods of others just by showing up. It’s a lucky time for meeting fun people who also happen to be good for you to know on a professional level. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are those around you who act like the police of every situation. You’re not so worried about controlling other people’s activities. You have your own beautiful chaos to control. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t have to try to be original, because you already are. You can’t help it! No two people -- not even twins -- have the same fingerprint. You will leave your unique mark on the world. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone in your life has different preferences pertaining to personal space. Some like eye contact, others want hugs, and still others like to stay at a distance. You’ll be observant and hit the right note with one and all. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will not be confused with a neat freak anytime soon. That is, unless you devote several hours to handling a certain area of your home. This is the perfect time to get in there and get it done. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The information trail goes cold, and yet you still feel a burning desire for knowledge. You might see this as a chance to seek the deeper knowing that comes from your intuition. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have no way of knowing who will be able to make use of your talent and ideas. That’s why it’s important to advertise. Post your message where it will reach as many people as possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Trou-

For Rent by Abigail Van Buren
AMERICAN HEROES INSPIRE OTHERS THROUGH COURAGE AND SACRIFICE
DEAR READERS: I published a letter (June 6) in which a reader, “Alison in Ashland, Ore.,” asked you to name your heroes. She asked that they not be celebrities or family members. A tsunami of emails descended upon me -- many of them moving, thought-provoking and inspiring. I’m sorry that space limitations prevent me from printing more of them -- but I thank you ALL for your submissions. Read on: DEAR ABBY: Captain C.B. “Sully” Sullenberger! A humble man, under intense pressure, who saved the lives of his entire U.S. Airways Flight 1549 on Jan. 15, 2009. After landing his Airbus in the Hudson River, he refused to leave his ship until all passengers and crew had disembarked. THAT is a true hero, someone going about his daily routine and doing something extraordinary. -- PAMELA F., SLINGERLANDS, N.Y. DEAR ABBY: I’m nominating two people: Stephen Hawking, who has overcome disastrous physical and medical problems to become the world’s most prominent physicist, and Gustavo Dudamel, who has brought intense life to the L.A. Philharmonic and the renewal of symphonic music in general, having lifted to new heights Venezuela’s “The Program,” which gives all students in that country the opportunity to make music. -- NANCY E., OAK RIDGE, TENN. DEAR ABBY: My personal hero is Rosa Parks. I grew up in a racist household and was even beaten for disagreeing. But the courage it took for Rosa to sit down and refuse to get up moved mountains for me. I thank her with all my heart. -- KENDRA IN HAIKU, HAWAII DEAR ABBY: My definition of hero has long been the man who stood in front of tanks in Tiananmen Square. As a teenager I watched in awe at his strength of character and heart. In that moment he showed us what the world could be if we, too, chose to stand up. -- EMILY F., SAN JOSE, CALIF.
DEAR ABBY: It’s Miep Gies, one of the women who helped hide Anne Frank and her family. She didn’t hesitate before saying “of course!” when asked for help, and when asked years after WWII, she said she would do it again in a heartbeat because it was the right thing to do. As an LGBT and AIDS activist, I’m often asked why I do what I do if it doesn’t affect me directly. I do it because it’s the right thing. To me, if more people thought like Mrs. Gies, this world would be a much better place to live, so I try to remember her in everything I do. -- ALESS P., DARTMOUTH, NOVA SCOTIA DEAR ABBY: My hero is Cesar Chavez. Before he came along, workers didn’t even have a place to relieve themselves while working the fields under all weather conditions. He sacrificed his own health and his life to help their plight. I read in our local newspaper where somebody referred to him as an illegal alien, although he was born in Arizona and served in the U.S. Navy. If that doesn’t make someone an American, nothing will. -- ARTHUR IN BARSTOW, CALIF. DEAR ABBY: I nominate Florence Nightingale. Despite familial and societal objections to her work, she made nursing care a respected, effectual profession that continues to benefit humankind. Women of her generation were seen as inferior, capable only of servitude; she showed nurses’ work to be much more than a harmless presence among the suffering. Now THAT’s a positive role model for our youth to emulate. -- STEPHANIE L., R.N. IN CONNECTICUT DEAR ABBY: Who are my heroes? My vote goes to the Navy SEALs who killed Bin Laden! -- MARILYN W., KNOXVILLE, TENN. READERS: Stay tuned. I’ll print more of your submissions tomorrow.

CCFHS keeps the community strong BERLIN -- A recent report from Capital Link, a non-profit group focused on providing resources for community health center growth, underscores the importance of Coos County Family Health Services (CCFHS) in our community. Not only do the providers and nurses at CCFHS keep the community healthy through its award winning medical programs but CCFHS also has a strong economic impact by employing over 120 individuals and creating another 44 indirect jobs within the community. The total economic impact in the community is over 13.8 million dollars annually, 25 percent of that in new dollars flowing into the community through grants and other donations from outside of Coos County. Annually, CCFHS provides over $500,000 free or reduced cost medical services, and helps connect patients to over $2,200,000 in free medications. Because access to high quality medical services sometimes is not the only stumbling block to enjoying good health through a person’s life, CCFHS also provides Behavioral Health, School-Based Oral Health screenings, Nutrition Counseling, and RESPONSE to domestic and sexual violence. In addition, CCFHS’s CEO, Adele Woods, plays a leadership role in a collaborative of social service agencies in the region and is president of the Board of Directors of the North Country Health Consortium, a collaborative of the medical service organizations in the North Country. CCFHS
works closely with Community Actions Programs of Belknap and Merrimack County to continue to provide WIC programs for mothers with young children in the county. This month, towns of Gorham and Shelburne as well as the city of Berlin issued proclamations showing support of the “high quality, and comprehensive primary health care to uninsured and medically underserved people in the Androscoggin Valley” by Coos County Family Health Services. Robert Pelchat, president of the CCFHS board, said, ”Quality health outcomes matter and our Community Health Center consistently produces very good results for patients, especially in the area of prevention. Now with our Patient Centered Medical Home Level #3 recognition, our patients will receive the very best of coordinated continuous case management.” Community Health Centers, like CCFHS, typically follow best practices and provide services to a patient at a cost third less than private practices—Providers are motivated to provided the very best patient centered care available. CCFHS’s new Patient Centered Medical Home program case manager, Andrea Labonville, RN, says, “I love being able to connect with patients recently released from the hospital, to update the patient care plan and to provide additional support to our patients!” For more information about CCFHS, visit www.coosfamilyhealth.org.

It increasingly seems like the families participating in the festival games and camping areas are having as much or more fun than the racers on the course!” observed Howie Wemyss, general manager of Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center and the Mt. Washington Auto Road. The call for volunteers is now officially on, as well. Various times are available to be a part of this Great Glen weekend. All volunteers receive a 24 Hours of Great Glen event shirt, a pass for Great Glen Trails and a meal ticket. To volunteer please contact Kelly Evans at 603-466-3988. Sponsors for the event include: Eastern Mountain Sports, Light & Motion, The Bike Shop, Mountain Valley Mall Cinema 7, Dakine, Red Jersey Cyclery, SRAM, Felt Bicycles, Cannondale, Michelin, Coca-Cola, Maui Jim, Hammer Nutrition and Precision Endurance.
