Conversion of boiler underway at mill BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM -- The new burners for the No 1 boiler at Gorham Paper and Tissue should be installed by the beginning of next week as the mill moves closer to switching over to natural gas. Plant Manager Willis Blevins said work on the boiler was underway yesterday and engineer

Andrew Hartford has assured him the conversion will be completed by Sept. 19. Once the conversion is complete, the boiler will be able to burn natural gas which is expected to save the plant as much as $1 million a month in lower energy costs. The mill has been burning No. 6 fuel oil. Blevins said he will be talking to Trans-Canada officials Friday to set up the schedule to do the tap-in for the gas line. The mill gas line will connect

in Berlin to the Portland National Gas Transmission System pipeline owned by Trans-Canada. The spur will travel from the PNGTS line across the Androscoggin River on an old railroad bridge to the mill. Blevins said work was also underway yesterday bringing the line across the bridge. Once the gas line is up and running to the mill, Blevins said the No 2 boiler will be converted to see MILL page 5

Babcock and Wilcox hired to construct biomass plant BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN -- In 1993, Babcock & Wilcox installed the recovery boiler at the then James River pulp mill at a cost of almost $100 million. Now, almost 20 years later, the company’s con-

struction business has been awarded a $186 million contract to convert that boiler into a 75-megawatt biomass plant. The North Carolina-based company yesterday announced Babcock and Wilcox Construction Co. Inc., has agreed to engineer, procure, and construct

the biomass plant for Berlin Station. A subsidiary of B&W, Delta Power Services, was awarded a six year contract worth more than $19 million to provide operations and maintenance services for the plant. Babcock & Wilcox Construction will convert the see CONSTRUCT page 9

BERLIN -- City Planner Pamela Laflamme Monday night presented the city council with two more options for redistricting the city’s wards to conform to the new U.S. Census data. The council must select an option soon in order to get it approved by the N.H. Secretary of State’s office in time to get on the ballot for the presidential primary next January. Last month the council rejected the initial option developed by Laflamme because it would have moved Ward III Councilor Mike Rozek into Ward I. Laflamme was asked to come back with an option that did not dislocate any of the existing councilors. While the new options meet that goal, the council still expressed its displeasure with the need for widespread changes because of the presence of the state prison in Ward III. City Clerk Debra Patrick explained that the census counts inmates even through most can not vote. New Hampshire bans incarcerated felons from voting Patrick noted there are some inmates serving sentences for misdemeanors who can vote but the vast majority are felons. see COUNCIL page 3

What’s a presidential library to do? SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (NY Times) — When Republicans gathered at the Ronald Reagan Library and Museum here for the presidential debate last week, the backdrop was an overhauled exhibition on the Reagan presidency, done under the watchful eye of Nancy Reagan. It is intended, in part, to be a more complete depiction of the Reagan presidency, replacing one that many had seen as a bit too worshipful and airbrushed. But another exhibition that just opened at yet another presidential museum not far away — the Watergate installation at the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda — has offered a stark challenge to the Reagan tribute here, exposing both the different ways that these two museums have chosen to remember their subjects. “The Reagan library is the way presidential libraries have been in the past,” said Jon Wiener, a history professor at the University of California, Irvine. “The Nixon library represents the new kind of museum that presents more of an historic view, warts and all.” The Watergate exhibition is so detailed, searing and unapologetic that it was shunned by Nixon loyalists. They did not attend the opening ceremony this year and provided it no financial support, and last week, one museum docent resigned his post in protest.

U.S. poverty rate at 15 percent ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The percentage of Americans living in poverty last year rose to the highest level since 1993, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday, fresh evidence that the disappointing economic recovery has done nothing for the country’s poorest citizens. Another 2.6 million people slipped below the poverty line in 2010, meaning 46.2 million people now live in poverty in the

United States, the highest number in the 52 years the Census Bureau has been tracking it, said Trudi Renwick, chief of the Poverty Statistic Branch at the Census Bureau. That figure represented 15.1 percent of the population, up from 14.3 percent in 2009, and 11.7 percent at the beginning of the decade in 2001. The poverty line in 2010 for a family of four was $22,113.

And in new signs of economic distress among the middle class, median household incomes adjusted for inflation declined by 2.3 percent in 2010 from the previous year to $49,400. That was 7 percent less than the peak of $53,252 in 1999. The report comes as President Obama gears up to pass a jobs bill, and analysts said the bleak numbers could help him make his case for urgency.

Obama looks for big health Libya’s war-tested women cuts, worrying Democrats hope to keep new power WASHINGTON (NY Times) — As Congress opens a politically charged exploration of ways to pare the deficit, President Obama is expected to seek hundreds of billions of dollars in savings in Medicare and Medicaid, delighting Republicans and dismaying many Democrats who fear that his proposals will become a starting point for bigger cuts in the popular health programs. The president made clear his intentions in his speech to a joint session of Congress last week

when, setting forth a plan to create jobs and revive the economy, he said he disagreed with members of his party “who don’t think we should make any changes at all to Medicare and Medicaid.” Few Democrats fit that description. But many say that if, as expected, Obama next week proposes $300 billion to $500 billion of savings over 10 years in entitlement programs, he will provide political cover for a new bipartisan Congressional committee to cut just as much or more.

TRIPOLI, Libya (NY Times) — Aisha Gdour, a school psychologist, smuggled bullets in her brown leather handbag. Fatima Bredan, a hairdresser, tended wounded rebels. Hweida Shibadi, a family lawyer, helped NATO find airstrike targets. And Amal Bashir, an art teacher, used a secret code to collect orders for munitions: Small-caliber rounds were called “pins,” larger rounds were “nails.” A “bottle of milk” meant a Kalashnikov. In the Libyan rebels’ unlikely victory over Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, women did far more than send sons and husbands to the front. The six-month uprising against Colonel Qaddafi has propelled women in this traditional society into roles they never imagined. But in the emerging new Libya, women are so far almost invisible in the leadership. Libya’s 45-member Transitional National Council includes just one woman. The council’s headquarters does not have a women’s bathroom.

Flu shots available at CCFHS

BERLIN -- Flu shots are available through Coos County Family Health Services (CCFHS) at our three medical offices. The regular flu shot is approved for people aged 6 months and older. This protects against three strains of virus that are circulating in our community now. This year’s strains are the same as last year’s, so the vaccine is readily available. Vulnerable populations include pregnant women and children younger than 5 years old, people over 50, and people of any age living with chronic medical conditions should schedule an appointment as soon as possible. The best time to get vaccinated is now before the winter flu season begins. Most authorities are suggesting that the flu has mutated so much that there is no longer a “flu season.” Therefore it is best to take advantage of the flu clinics offered by CCFHS at the medical office COUNCIL from page one

When the census was conducted, the state prison housed about 700 inmates which inflated the population of Ward III. Counting the inmates, Ward III has a population of 3,193. The next closest ward is Ward II with 2,335 people. Based on the city’s population of 10,051, each ward should ideally have a population of 2,513. Patrick said the wards must be within five percent of that median number. The council seemed to favor the second option prepared by Laflamme. The option would move sections of Ward III to Ward II and Ward IV. Parts of Ward IV and Ward II would move to Ward I. The council rejected a third option, moving the prison into Ward IV. That option would require moving even more people than Option 2. Laflamme noted the task of redistricting is complicated by census criteria that require her to realign wards using census block lines and information. Blocks that are moved must be contiguous and touching the new ward. “There’s really no neat and tidy way to do it,” Laflamme said. “It’s kind of a tricky exercise at best,” she said. Rozek thanked Laflamme for the work she did, adding that he felt she had done a “terrific job”. He said he would like to see the federal statute that requires communities to count inmates in setting wards boundar-

nearest you. Vaccinations are free for those on Medicare. Most health insurance companies cover the flu shot as a preventive measure. For the uninsured who qualify for Coos County Family Health Services’ sliding fee scale, the costs can be scaled depending on income. If you decide to receive your flu vaccine from someone, other than your primary care provider at CCFHS, such as a pharmacist, please remember that you must bring or send the documentation to your primary care provider. CCFHS providers need to know whether patients have received a flu vaccine as they are deciding how to treat other acute illnesses that may occur in the next six months. This information will not get into your medical record any other way. For an appointment call one of our medical offices or 752-2040. ies. He said the situation will only get worst in the next census when the federal prison is on line with its 2,052 inmate capacity. Patrick said the council must make a decision on an option soon if it wants to avoid the expense of a special election. She said once the council approves an option, there is an 81-day process that has to take place. First there is a public hearing. Then the option must be reviewed by the city attorney and the Secretary of State and Attorney-General’s office before it can go as a referendum question on the ballot. The new wards must be in place for the November 2013 election. Mayor Paul Grenier predicted the redistricting debate will lead to setting up a charter commission to study the city’s political structure and how councilors are elected. “I think this creates the basis for some change,” he said. He said the city’s political structure was set up when Berlin had a population of about 20,000 and is now outdated. He said he could envision electing some of the councilors at large as the city does for the mayoral position and reducing the number of wards from four to two. Grenier asked Laflamme to develop the exact boundaries lines for Option 2 and identify what areas of the city will be affected by the redistricting. She said she would have that information for the next council meeting.

The President’s Do-Over

A week after President Obama took the oath of office, Alice Rivlin, budget chief to President Bill Clinton, testified before a Congress that was about to consider sweeping stimulus legislation. In her remarks, Rivlin voiced her support for a swift and substantial federal intervention to prop up the sagging economy. But she offered lawmakers three warnings as well. The first warning was about the design of the stimulus. The ideal anti-recession package, Rivlin told Congress, would include aid to state governments, extended unemployment benefits, money for genuinely “shovel ready” projects and a payroll tax holiday. But she urged Congress to resist the temptation to combine these kinds of short-term recession-fighting measures with a larger and more costly investment in energy, education and infrastructure. Trying to rush a long-term spending package through in an atmosphere of crisis, she cautioned, would only guarantee that its contents would be poorly designed, and much of its spending wasted. The second warning was about setting expectations. Given the nature of the financial crisis and the nasty overhang of debt it left behind, any recovery would probably be slow even with a stimulus bill. Policy makers “should be skeptical of all forecasts,” she told Congress, “and especially conscious of the risk that things may continue to go worse than expected.” The third warning was about how to handle the problem of deficits, which already shadowed the stimulus debate. “We do not have the luxury of waiting until the economy recovers before taking actions to bring down projected future deficits,” Rivlin said. Instead, she urged Congress to take action “this year” on entitlement spending, and to prioritize Medicare reforms over a more comprehensive health care overhaul. With these three warnings, Rivlin anticipated everything that the Obama White House and the Democratic Congress would do wrong over the next two years. First, instead of passing a targeted antirecession package, Congressional Democrats crammed the stimulus bill with spending on everything from Head Start and Pell Grants to high-speed rail and renewable-energy projects. The hope was that the legislation would do more than just kickstart a recovery: It would lay a new foundation for the economy, with an electric car in every garage and a Solyndra solar panel on every roof. The

result, predictably, was a bill that looked less like a temporary exercise in crisis management and more like the Democratic Party’s permanent wish list. Second, instead of emphasizing the severity of the recession, the White House offered sunny — and, as it turned out, wildly mistaken — projections about how swiftly the stimulus would bring down the unemployment rate. Even once it became clear that the recovery wasn’t happening nearly as quickly as promised, the administration stuck to its Pollyannaish script, sending the president and the vice president out on an embarrassing “recovery summer” tour in 2010 and repeatedly projecting economic growth that failed to materialize. Finally, instead of pivoting from the Recovery Act to deficits and entitlement reform, the Democratic majority spent all of its poststimulus political capital trying to push both a costly new health care entitlement and a cap-and-trade bill through Congress. Both policies were advertised, intermittently, as deficit reduction, but neither came close to addressing the real long-term drivers of the nation’s debt. And they left Congressional Democrats to campaign for re-election in 2010 as the custodians of record deficits as well as sky-high unemployment. Now, nearly three years after Rivlin’s warnings went unheeded, President Obama has groped his way to an agenda that looks more like what she originally recommended. His speech to Congress last week suggested that he intends to campaign for re-election on what should have been the blueprint for his first four years in office: a short-term stimulus highlighted by a payroll tax cut, a medium-term push to overhaul the tax code and a plan for long-term entitlement reform. To Republicans, this agenda holds out the possibility that a second Obama term might feature more opportunities for compromise and common ground. But to voters pondering whether to make that second term happen, it amounts to a request for a presidential do-over — a tacit admission that the White House’s first-term agenda has been less than successful, and a plea for a second chance to get things right. If the answer to that plea turns out to be “no,” then President Obama’s political epitaph should be taken from the Victorian verse of Dante Gabriel Rossetti: “Look in my face; my name is Might-havebeen; I am also called No-more, Too-late, Farewell.”

If It Feels Right

During the summer of 2008, the eminent Notre Dame sociologist Christian Smith led a research team that conducted in-depth interviews with 230 young adults from across America. The interviews were part of a larger study that Smith, Kari Christoffersen, Hilary Davidson, Patricia Snell Herzog and others have been conducting on the state of America’s

youth. Smith and company asked about the young people’s moral lives, and the results are depressing. It’s not so much that these young Americans are living lives of sin and debauchery, at least no more than you’d expect from 18- to 23-yearsee RIGHT page 5

sphere of extreme moral individualism — of relativism and nonjudgmentalism. Again, this doesn’t mean that America’s young people are immoral. Far from it. But, Smith and company emphasize, they have not been given the resources — by schools, institutions and families — to cultivate their moral intuitions, to think more broadly about moral obligations, to check behaviors that may be degrading. In this way, the study says more about adult America than youthful America. Smith and company are stunned, for example, that the interviewees were so completely untroubled by rabid consumerism. (This was the summer of 2008, just before the crash). Many of these shortcomings will sort themselves out as these youngsters get married, have kids, enter a profession or fit into more clearly defined social roles. Institutions will inculcate certain habits. Broader moral horizons will be forced upon them. But their attitudes at the start of their adult lives do reveal something about American culture. For decades, writers from different perspectives have been warning about the erosion of shared moral frameworks and the rise of an easygoing moral individualism. Allan Bloom and Gertrude Himmelfarb warned that sturdy virtues are being diluted into shallow values. Alasdair MacIntyre has written about emotivism, the idea that it’s impossible to secure moral agreement in our culture because all judgments are based on how we feel at the moment. Charles Taylor has argued that morals have become separated from moral sources. People are less likely to feel embedded on a moral landscape that transcends self. James Davison Hunter wrote a book called “The Death of Character.” Smith’s interviewees are living, breathing examples of the trends these writers have described. In most times and in most places, the group was seen to be the essential moral unit. A shared religion defined rules and practices. Cultures structured people’s imaginations and imposed moral disciplines. But now more people are led to assume that the free-floating individual is the essential moral unit. Morality was once revealed, inherited and shared, but now it’s thought of as something that emerges in the privacy of your own heart.

hopes to decide by next week. “We think we’re there,” he said. The No. 4 paper machine closed down Sunday after a brief run but the No. 9 towel machine is operating. Blevins said he is hopeful the towel machine now has enough orders to run steady. “I don’t plan on shutting it down anymore,” he said.

olds. What’s disheartening is how bad they are at thinking and talking about moral issues. The interviewers asked open-ended questions about right and wrong, moral dilemmas and the meaning of life. In the rambling answers, which Smith and company recount in a new book, “Lost in Transition,” you see the young people groping to say anything sensible on these matters. But they just don’t have the categories or vocabulary to do so. When asked to describe a moral dilemma they had faced, two-thirds of the young people either couldn’t answer the question or described problems that are not moral at all, like whether they could afford to rent a certain apartment or whether they had enough quarters to feed the meter at a parking spot. “Not many of them have previously given much or any thought to many of the kinds of questions about morality that we asked,” Smith and his co-authors write. When asked about wrong or evil, they could generally agree that rape and murder are wrong. But, aside from these extreme cases, moral thinking didn’t enter the picture, even when considering things like drunken driving, cheating in school or cheating on a partner. “I don’t really deal with right and wrong that often,” is how one interviewee put it. The default position, which most of them came back to again and again, is that moral choices are just a matter of individual taste. “It’s personal,” the respondents typically said. “It’s up to the individual. Who am I to say?” Rejecting blind deference to authority, many of the young people have gone off to the other extreme: “I would do what I thought made me happy or how I felt. I have no other way of knowing what to do but how I internally feel.” Many were quick to talk about their moral feelings but hesitant to link these feelings to any broader thinking about a shared moral framework or obligation. As one put it, “I mean, I guess what makes something right is how I feel about it. But different people feel different ways, so I couldn’t speak on behalf of anyone else as to what’s right and wrong.” Smith and company found an atmoburn natural gas as well. He said it will serve as a back-up boiler. Gorham Paper and Tissue also plans to install a new tissue machine in the mill at an estimated cost of $35 million. Last month the company received six bids for a tissue machine. Blevins said the company is close to a decision on a tissue machine and

existing black liquor recovery boiler to a bubbling fluidized bed boiler. It will also design and install a catalytic reduction system for nitrogen oxides control, a baghouse for the control of particulates emissions, an emissions monitoring system, and design and supply ash handling equipment. “This project is a continuing confirmation of B&W’s leadership in technology, construction and project management in the renewable biomass energy market,” said B&W Power Generation Group President and COO Richard L. Killion in a press release. B&W officials could not be reached yesterday for information on the construction schedule for the project or hiring practices. The release said engineering would begin immedi-

ately and the plant is scheduled to come on line in the fall of 2013. A spokesman for Cate Street Capital on Monday said crew leaders should be coming to the site this week to start planning specific schedules and make preparations to ramp up construction. Scott Tranchemontagne said construction work should begin in earnest during the last week of September and early October. Cate Street Capital has said construction of the plant will create approximately 400 jobs. When complete, it will be the largest biomass plant in the state and among the largest in the Northeast. It will purchase 750,000 tons of low grade wood annually. The plant is projected to employ about 40 people once it is operating

and inject $25 million annually into the North Country economy. Last week, Cate Street Capital

announced it had closed on financing for the $275 million project, securing about $200 million in senior notes

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A new activity will renew your vigor. Because you’re not sure what to expect from this experience, your senses will be on high alert, ready to receive and react to the slightest input. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have made appointments you’d like to keep. Being on time requires that you resist the impulse to do “just one more thing” before the imaginary buzzer goes off. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Getting stressful work out of the way will be key. You’ll either do it now or decide to do it “never” -- both ways will eliminate the problem. Tonight, you’ll be a happy, peaceful version of yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll get closure on an emotional burden. This might be achieved by pouring your heart into a letter. You don’t even have to send it to get the full benefit of the exercise. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Conserve energy. Your brain is doing subconscious and creative work, and a slower pace allows it to happen unimpeded. Also, get to bed at a decent hour to set yourself up for big success tomorrow. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 14). You’ll conjure magic dreams from the very core of your being. These aims are mostly selfless and have little to do with superficial matters. A friend’s recommendation will open new resources. You’ll enjoy an ambitious project in November. A study pays off in February. Wedding bells ring in May. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 4, 33, 29 and 20.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You appreciate your position a lot better after spending time with someone who is not nearly as fortunate as you. It’s sometimes difficult to see what you have until you look through another person’s eyes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a clear idea of what your future will look like. You will take pleasure and pride in the fact that things seem to be shaping up right before your eyes. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your rational side will overpower your emotional side for now. In the end, though, emotions always win. If you temporarily bottle them up, just be sure to circle back and let them out when it’s appropriate. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You feel things deeply -- sometimes too deeply for your own good. You can quietly breathe through strong feelings, though, and soon the emotions become manageable. Ultimately, they will fuel you instead of drain you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can’t help but bring your special “you-ness” to everything you do. Just being around you is healing for someone. Your laughter chases the blues away. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It’s always reassuring when you feel that people like you for who you are. But you are also wise to realize that “who you are” includes what you are able to do for the people in question. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s not your job to prop up everyone around you, and yet it comes naturally to you. You’re accustomed to having others lean on you. Caution: Whatever you do now will set a precedent for the future.

DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for 10 years, and it is a wonderful marriage. We love each other very much, never argue and get along great. We have a 2-year-old child. Recently I found a “sex tape” online of my wife with the guy she dated before me. This video was taken without her knowledge and is from 13 years ago, Because of this, I am not upset about it. My question is, should I bring this to her attention, and if so, how? I feel she needs to know it’s out there. I’m reacting to this as a man would. I don’t know how a woman would react. Please help. -- IT’S PRIVATE DEAR IT’S PRIVATE: Although there are no sex tapes of me floating around, I can tell you from a woman’s perspective that if there was one (and the lighting was unflattering), I’d be furious. Your wife has a right to know, so don’t keep her in the dark. P.S. How did you come across that video? I’m sure she will be interested to know. DEAR ABBY: A couple of years ago, my husband of 30 years became distant. He didn’t want to touch me, talk to me or spend time with me. I was devastated. An old boyfriend emailed me to offer condolences on the death of my brother. There were just chatty emails at the beginning, about our lives and how we had gone such separate ways in 40 years. The emails started becoming more intimate, as I was fed by his seeming “love” for me. He told me I was his “soul mate” and I fell for it. I took risks to see him, eventually slept with him and lied to everyone I know in the process. Recently my husband came across an email from the past boyfriend. My secret was out and the truth was ugly. I had betrayed God, my husband, my mother and my four beautiful children. My husband no longer trusts me and wants a divorce. Abby, please tell your readers to think long and hard be-

fore acting out of loneliness. It doesn’t just affect the husband and wife; it also has an impact on the entire family, circle of friends and standing within the community. -- ADULTEROUS WIFE IN FLORIDA DEAR WIFE: How sad that you didn’t get to the bottom of your husband’s distancing before it led to you having an affair. But before you allow your husband to place all the blame on your shoulders, you should make it your business to learn the reason for HIS behavior -- since “everything” is now out in the open. DEAR ABBY: I love my husband and, for the most part, we get along great. My only complaint is he stays neutral when someone hurts my feelings. The latest incident involved good friends of ours until the wife hurt me for the last time. She has a history of inviting me out, even talking me into changing my plans, then ditching me if something better comes along. This last time, I was invited to her house, only to learn (as I’m walking out the door) that she had left for the evening. I’ve had enough! I gave her as many chances as I did only because my husband said I “overreact” and shouldn’t let it be a big deal. This isn’t the first time he has chosen not to validate my feelings. The fact that my husband is never on my side hurts me more than what my “friend” has ever done. Am I right? -- GETS NO SUPPORT IN AZUSA, CALIF. DEAR GETS NO SUPPORT: Your husband may not want to be caught in the middle of a disagreement between two women, but that’s no reason for him not to tell you your feelings are appropriate when they are justified. He may be good friends with the husband, but the wife has shown she’s not much of a friend to you. Real friends don’t stand each other up if something “better” comes along. Her behavior is rude and insensitive, and I don’t blame you for being offended.

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

Belanger, Wyman capture triple crown racing series titles at Riverside GROVETON -- Whitefield’s Ben Belanger captured top honors in round three of the Bond Auto Parts street stock triple crown racing series and Woodsville’s Jason Wyman had strong runner-up showing in his 100 lap event, capturing the Kids Only Day Care triple crown series for the Cyclones at Riverside Speedway Saturday. It was Jiffy Mart, Eastman Trophy, and Bond Auto Parts/Make-A-Wish night at the ¼ mile speed plant. Fans were treated to several distance features that had championship point battles on the line. The racing concluded in under four and a half hours with

plenty of side by side racing. In the Town & Country division, Belanger appeared to be heading for a runner-up finish in the 50 lap street stock main event. Team mate Nick Pilotte was out front and had mechanical problems rear its ugly head on lap 44. That shuffled the front runners with Belanger taking the front spot. Belanger finished the final eight circuits for the victory. The #16 of Dean Switser and the #7 of Cody LeBlanc took podium finishes. William Hennequen and Dana Graham rounded out the top five. Heat wins went to Graham and Jason Kenison.

Wyman and Pilotte were tied in points after two previous events in the Cyclone/Enduro triple crown series. Wyman took to the point in the 100 lap feature, after a great battle with Milan’s Chris Ouellette. Waterville Maine’s Jamie Heath worked past Wyman in the latter stages of the race to take the overall victory. Wyman, Ouellette, LeBlanc, and Lorin Vear all finished in the top five. The JA Corey/US Cellular Outlaw/Sportsman feature was an old fashioned hard driving event that had several point battles in the top ten on the line. When see RIVERSIDE page 15

RlVER CRUISING Unlike traditional cruise liners, river cruises are designed to provide a softer, more refined and intimate profile of the country that you are visiting. Exploring charming villages, sampling regional food and immersing yourself in the culture is part of this educational experience. While large cruise liners can have over 3,000 people, river cruises host between 150 and 300. This smaller passenger list creates a more casual atmosphere while providing exceptional and personalized service from the staff. Visiting large cities, small towns and everywhere in between vs. itineraries restricted to cities near the ocean and major bodies of water is one of the great benefits of river cruising. All in all “River Cruising” is unique. It is about relaxing, experiencing local customs, meeting new friends and creating a vacation that is second to none.
