Berlin prison funding passes subcommittee BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN -- Funding to open the federal prison in Berlin is included in a U.S. Senate subcommittee bill that was approved yesterday. U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen yesterday reported the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies approved Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 funding legislation that includes $6.6 billion in funding for the Bureau of Prisons. The legislation specifically states that funding for prisons that have been completed but are awaiting funding to open is a priority. There are three such prisons nationwide, including the Berlin prison. “This funding will ensure that our federal prisons
are adequately staffed and enable the activation of new prisons that are currently sitting empty due to lack of funds,” a subcommittee release said. The funding plan was approved 15 to 1 by the subcommittee and goes to the full Senate Appropriations Committee today. “This is a very positive step for the people of Berlin,” Shaheen said. “This prison is ready to open, the prison system needs it, and the community wants it. It means good jobs in a hard hit area. I am hopeful that Congress will ultimately approve this funding plan so that this situation can finally be remedied.” A spokesman for Shaheen said if the appropriation bill passes the full committee, it would normally go before both houses of Congress and then to the Presi-
dent’s desk for his signature. But in recent months, Congress has instead chosen to pass a series of continuing resolutions. The 1,280 bed prison was completed last year at a cost of $275 million and a warden was hired to oversee the facility. Shaheen noted that maintaining the empty prison is costing the government $4 million a year at a time when the federal system is 35 percent overcrowded. When operating the prison is expected to generate about 300 jobs and contribute $38 million to the local economy. The state’s Congressional delegation has made opening the prison a priority. Shaheen this spring did a tour and interview on the prison with NBC Today show reporter Kelly O’Donnell.
he said. Poulin of of HEB Engineering, Stuart Arnett of Arnett Developing Group, and landscape architect and planner John Wacker, were hired this spring to develop a downtown action plan to revitalize Berlin’s downtown. Funding came from a variety of sources including the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund, Public Service of N.H., the Main Street Program, and the city. Poulin said the team hopes to release a set of rec-
ommended actions by the end of the year. The final report will include implementation schedules, budgets, and accountable entities. The team wants to review the final report with the Moving Downtown Forward committee and the various stakeholders in time to get the final report to the city council for the budget process. Mayor Paul Grenier, who attended the session, said he believes the city has to participate in the

BERLIN -- An optimistic tone dominated the second listening session for the Moving Downtown Forward initiative. Consultant Jay Poulin noted the city and downtown have come a long way in the five years since the pulp mill closed. Things, he said, are moving in the right direction. “Downtowns are the heart and soul of any city,”

BERLIN -- Mike Caron of Caron Building Center and David Morin of Morin Shoe/Inner Glimpse run different businesses in two very different buildings. But the two businessmen are alike in their interest in reducing energy costs for their operations. Both have had a comprehensive energy analysis performed as part of Berlin BetterBuildings project. Caron and Morin were the first businesspeople to sign up for a commercial energy analysis or audit through the program. Caron Building Center is a warehouse type building that has had about 10 additions since it was first built in 1875. For the past 36 years it has been owned by the Caron family.

terBuildings coming to the city, he called because he was interested in reducing electric and energy costs for the center. David and Cindy Morin purchased their present three story Main Street building 13 years ago. They stripped the 1900 building down to the bricks and studs and refurbished the bottom two floors to house Morin’s Shoe Store and Inner Glimpse. David Morin said he contacted Berlin BetterBuildings because he is interested in reducing some of the 1,800 gallons of heating oil the building consumes annually.

NASA unveils new rocket design (NY TImes) — NASA revealed on Wednesday a design for its next colossal rocket that is to serve as the backbone for exploration of the solar system for the coming decades. The rocket would be the most powerful since the Saturn V that took Americans to the moon four decades ago. NASA expects that it could lift astronauts on deepspace missions farther than anyone has ever traveled. “We’re investing in technologies to live and work in space, and it sets the stage for visiting asteroids and Mars,” the NASA administrator, Major General Charles F. Bolden Jr., said at a news conference. In an effort to speed development and control costs, the design is based on pieces from the justretired space shuttles. The first stage would essentially be an elongated shuttle fuel tank, and it would use the same rocket engines. For the initial test flights, solid rocket boosters — stretched versions of the shuttle boosters — would be strapped on to provide additional thrust. The first unmanned test flight of the first iteration of the rocket, able to lift 70 metric tons to low-Earth orbit, could fly as early as 2017. Future versions are to be more powerful, capable of lifting up to 130 metric tons.
When you launch in a rocket, you’re not really flying that rocket. You’re just sort of hanging on. —Michael P. Anderson

GOP suggests White House rushed solar company’s loans
WASHINGTON (NY Times) — A House subcommittee disclosed documents on Wednesday suggesting that a final review of more than $500 million in loan guarantees for Solyndra, a California solar company that recently declared bankruptcy, may have been rushed so that Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. could announce its approval at a groundbreaking two years ago. But at a subcommittee hearing, officials of the Energy Depart-
ment’s loan office and the White House budget office defended their decisions, which they said were carefully reviewed and not politically inspired. The collapse of the deal has turned what was once portrayed by some as a shining example of the promise of federal subsidies to stimulate economic growth through green jobs into a grim lesson in what others call the futility of federal meddling in the marketplace. The subcommittee’s Republi-
can staff members, in a memorandum issued at the hearing, said that e-mails among White House staff “raise questions as to whether the Solyndra loan guarantee was pushed to approval before it was ready in order for the Administration to highlight the stimulus, and whether additional time might have resulted in stronger mitigation of the risks presented by the deal.” The e-mails were first disclosed in The Washington Post and on the Web site of ABC News.
U.S. blames Pakistan-based group for Kabul attack KABUL, Afghanistan (NY Times) — Raising the death toll sharply, American and Afghan officials said Wednesday that the complexity and execution of the siege of the American Embassy and NATO’s headquarters in Kabul bore the hallmarks of a militant group based in Pakistan that has become one of the American military’s most implacable foes. Gen. John R. Allen, the NATO commander here, said 16 people had been killed in the attack — five Afghan police officers and eleven civil-
ians, including at least six children — double the number reported on Tuesday. The militant group that he and other officials blamed for the attack, the Haqqani network, is a crucial ally of Al Qaeda in the Pakistani border region and has been a longtime asset of Pakistan’s military and intelligence services in Afghanistan. Pakistan’s military chiefs have resisted American pressure to go after the Haqqanis, whose primary base is in North Waziristan, part of Pakistan’s tribal areas.

Abuse of Xanax leads a clinic to halt supply
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (NY Times) — Gayle Mink, a nurse practitioner at a community mental health center here, had tired of the constant stream of patients seeking Xanax, an anti-anxiety drug coveted for its swift calming effect. “You’re funneling a great deal of your energy into pacifying, educating, bumping heads with people over Xanax,” said Mink, whose employer, Seven Counties Services, serves some 30,000 patients in Louisville and the surrounding region. Because of the clamor for the drug, and concern over the striking number of overdoses involving Xanax here and across the country, Seven Counties took an unusual step — its doctors stopped writing new prescriptions for Xanax and its generic version, alprazolam, in April and plan to wean patients off it completely by year’s end. The experiment will be closely watched in a state that has wrestled with widespread prescription drug abuse for more than a decade and is grasping for solutions as it claims more lives by the week.

Sherman’s Farm hopes to find its way out of Irene mess with a winning Corn Maize
THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 15, 2011— Page 3
BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — For the past five years, “getting lost” has been an important part of business at the Corn Maize at the Sherman Farm in East Conway — but it's never played such an important role as this year, when the family-run farm suffered major damage to its crops due to Tropical Storm Irene. “We lost 75 percent of our income due to the effects of Irene, and it may be as much as 80 percent. We started the Corn Maize five years ago and in 2010, it probably accounted for about an eighth of our total income for the year in about seven weeks, so it's a pretty important part of our business now,” said Kathy Sherman during a farm-hosted media day Tuesday of the Corn Maize, which is set to open weekends starting Sept. 17. She is hoping for a strong “Corn Maize” business season to help offset some of the losses to her crops from Irene's damage. “We are hoping for a banner Corn Maize season — that will help up make up for a little bit of that hurt from Irene,” she said, on a tour of the two-phased Corn Maize under sunny blue skies Tuesday. Farm stands continue The Saco River's flood waters have long since receded from the flooding of Aug. 29, which impacted the farm's tomato greenhouses and some of its sweet corn. “This storm was so unusual because we have never experienced high water in the month of August, the peak of our growing season, so many of our vegetables were lost from the floods due to worries of contamination,” she said. Sherman said she has had naysayers out there who have wondered if the farm and its farm stand were still open, as well as the Corn Maize. “I did send out a message on Facebook yesterday, saying that yes we were still open,” said Sherman. Both Sherman's and nearby Weston's across the border in Maine received advisories from the FDA last week, which recommended that they destroy any of their crops which were impacted by flood waters from high water due to possible pathogens. As the Daily Sun reported last week, Weston's still had 6 acres of high ground sweet corn unaffected by the floods, and is in the midst of selling off that at its farm stands. Sherman's also continues to sell sweet corn which was not affected by the high waters. Both have received help from farms in eastern Maine in Weston's case and from Meredith for Sherman's, with the farms supplying them with tomatoes and sweet corn. “Our tomatoes are our biggest crop. Sweet corn takes up more space to grow, but it is not as big a part of our income — but you have to offer it, because that's what the people want.

They come into our stand, and then buy other things,” said Sherman, who thanked fellow farmers for helping them out. “Through the generosity of our friends, we have produce from their farms to sell. So, we'll keep on going that way.” The Saco flooded as deep as 5 feet in the area where the Corn Maize stands. “It is absolutely fine — the only thing you can see inside [from the Irene flooding] is in looking at the bent weeds. Any weeds in there are bending over the way the water flowed,” said Sherman. “They are all pointing from about southeast to northwest.” She is hoping that the farm may be able to receive some FEMA funding. “We're doing the paperwork, so we'll see,” she said. Stanley Cup theme The Sherman's Corn Maize is one of three in New Hampshire and one of several in Maine. They all serve as franchise operators with the Maize Company, based out of Utah. Its president is Brett Herbst. “He's a great guy to work with. He's farmer who once he got out of agriculture business school, he started making maizes, and he's made a life out of it. They are first quality — they not only advise you how to make a maize, they also help you on the business side: how to get sponsors, how to talk to the media,” said Sherman. The Sherman's design this year is paying tribute to the Stanley Cupwinning Boston Bruins, especially
MVP netminder Tim Thomas. “We're all hockey fans, especially my son, Jeff Hatch, who played locally while growing up. So, when the Bruins won in mid-June, we changed our plans and decided to go with the Stanley Cup theme. That's what we cut in the corn field July 2,” said Sherman. “We'll save what we were going to do for next year.” And what will that design be next year? “Of course, I can't tell you what that is — because it's always a secret!” she laughed. The Corn Maize attraction after this Saturday and Sunday continues weekends through Oct. 30, including on Oct. 10 for Columbus Day. The attraction opens at 10 a.m. each weekend day. In addition, the farm offers a haunted maize, “the Maize Massacre,” Friday and Saturday nights beginning Oct. 7 and continuing through Oct. 29 from 7 to 9 p.m. The flashlight non-haunted maze is open Oct. 22, 23, 29 and 30. In addition to the two phases of the maize, the farm also features a kids' maize. The larger maize takes an hour and a half to complete, while the minimaize takes 5 minutes. “We have two different phases of the larger maize — phase 1 takes about 20 minutes; phase 2 is much longer and takes upward of an hour,” Sherman said. “While in phase 1, you'll be walking through one of Tim Thomas' arms; in phase 2 you'll be going through part
of his body,” said Sherman, whose parents, Phyllis and her late dad, Al, started the farm in 1964. Now all members of the family are involved, especially during Corn Maize season. “Everyone helps out,” she said. Among the offerings are the Moo Express, a hayride, corn boxes, pedal tractors, a pumpkin patch, a playground, a new grain train that offers rides around the grounds, and also new for this year, a jumping pillow. The jumping pillow was damaged in the flooding but has been rebuilt in time for this weekend's planned opening. The attraction also features corn cannons, and interactive Maize games. School groups may also visit weekdays to get hands-on farm educational experience. “Our goal is to make family memories; for this to be a happy place to be. And, to make it educational as well — we have fun facts about goats, and bees, how important they are to pollinate crops. We focus a lot on field trips during the week to help educate kids about agriculture,” she said. Refreshments are available at the concession stand. Enjoy kettle corn, cider doughnuts, French fries, chicken fingers, and hot dogs and hamburgers. She thanked all 23 of the farm's Corn Maize partner ride sponsors, especially its media presenting partner, WMWV 93.5-FM and Magic 104, whose logos are both cut into this year's maize..

Obama is not a man to be trusted To the editor: My Fellow Americans. After having President Barrach Hussein Obama ride around in his million dollar bus shooting off his big mouth about creating jobs in this country here is what he has actually done about creating jobs in this country. Many U. S. Senators went to many foreign countries and did a lot of work making trade agreements with foreign countries. As a result, President Obama has three trade agreements somewhere in his possession that have to be sent to Congress
to be ratified. These trade agreements would create many jobs and balance the trade deficit in this country. He has had those trade agreements in his possession for 968 days. The U. S. Senate is waiting for those trade bills and why has a president who vocally announces he is doing all he can to create jobs not sending them to Congress. Clearly, what he says and what he does are not one and the same. Clearly, he is not a man to be trusted. Ray Losier Berlin

Eight Main Street
Once upon a Berlin Time
Hello fellow Berlinites. During the middle of October 1966, the Metropolitan Insurance Company, whose district office stood on 231 Main Street, named Steve J. Tassey as its new manager. He replaced Thomas R. Jekonowski who had recently passed away. Mr. Jekonowski had been the manager for 22 years. As for Tassey, he joined Metropolitan in 1955 as an agent in the Laconia area. He was promoted in 1957 and again in 1962. By 1963, Steve was the field training instructor. His duties as manager in Berlin gave him executive direction of the staff of four agency managers, two Metropolitan Insurance consultants, 26 agents and six members of a clerical staff. His son Steve Tassey Glen has followed in his father’s footsteps, being the manager of the Tassey Group here in Berlin today (2011). As for the Metropolitan office that once stood here in Berlin, sadly it is now an empty building at the previously mentioned address. During October of 1966, another one of Berlin’s old landmarks, which stood at 8 Main Street, was going to face the wrecking ball. This is when a decision was made to tear down this old historical block. By the spring of 1967, the wooden structure was torn down to make way for a parking lot to accommodate the employees of the Berlin City Bank. This building had stood at the entrance of Berlin’s business district for almost three quarters of a century, being built in 18921893 by Arthur Parent as a rooming house and business block. He was later joined in business by John B. Gilbert, who eventually became mayor of Berlin in 1902. This building was actually two blocks, with the right section being known as the Parent Block and the left section being called the Gilbert Block. The section now (1966) occupied by Marie’s restaurant was Albert Desilet’s pool hall and later Fortuna’s restaurant. Furniture stores played an important role in the businesses at 8 Main Street during this
building’s lifetime. First, it was Gilbert and Parent, and then came a man named Chamberlain. This was followed by Buber’s hardware and Furniture Company, Sol Plavin’s New England Furniture, Top’s Furniture and then Lionel Furniture. Occupancy by the Buber firm gave the building a name by which it had long been known, the Buber Block. In 1924, the Brideau family became co-owners. For many years, this building was a bit taller, but the height was reduced by one story. Now, it would be reduced to rubble and turned into a parking lot. The month of November produced tragedy for the citizens of Berlin, when four different local citizens were killed in accidents. On November 9, 1966, three and one half year old Sylvia Lariviere of 506 Kent Street was killed when she was struck by a motorcycle on Coos Street. She had become the third area person to die in a motor vehicle accident in a week and the second in Berlin. The driver of the motorcycle told police that the little girl had run into the street f r o m behind a parked car on C o o s Street, near the A n g e l Guardian Credit union. The operator swerved a n d missed the girl with the Arthur Parent f r o n t wheel, but she struck the knee of the passenger and was thrown to the pavement. It was a misfortune that both the relatives and the motorcyclist had to live with. Another accident occurred on Route 110 near the Berlin-Milan line when the car in which Conrad C. Watson was a passenger see 1966 VII page 5

he heard it again and found the monsignor standing in the center of his room with blood coming from his leg. At this point, the pastor was in shock and almost unconscious. Father Cote then helped the pastor back into his bed, tore a sheet and applied it tightly to Lauziere’s leg. This stopped the flow of blood and the pastor was then rushed to the St. Louis Hospital where he was given a transfusion. Danais diagnosed Lauziere’s problem as a massive hemorrhage from a ruptured artery in his leg. Father Lauziere passed away on January 5, 1986, almost twenty years after this incident. Finally, as 1966 was nearing its end, the “Founding Family” of the Granite State Rubber Company had a get together. They were the men and women who were part of the 50 person group, which opened the operations of this famous Berlin company in 1946 and were still actively employed twenty years later. There were names like Bernard Beaulac, Helen Johnson, Reginald Batchelder, Mrs. Alma Morin, Mrs. Emma Dion, Rosaire Therrian and more whose twenty years of association with the industry had been ones of rapid growth. By December of 1966, the company employed 1,100 people and was the second largest employer in Northern New Hampshire. It began as a stitching company in an abandoned building and by the year mentioned, offered employment not only to stitchers, but to many male and female technicians, engineers and skilled artisans. Today, its building has been empty for many years. Questions or comments email poof@ ne.rr.com. Also, become a fan of “Once Upon A Berlin Time” on Facebook and guess at the weekly mystery picture.

struck a concrete abutment. Watson, who was 27 years old and from West Milan, died instantly. That same week, 18 year old Rebecca E. Gray of 10 Pine Street in Gorham, lost her life when the car in which she was a passenger, rolled over in Temple, New Hampshire. State police said that the driver of the sports car in which Gray was riding, failed to hold the road on a curve, skidded off the highway and rolled over into some trees. One more young local person lost their life this month, when Michael Silts, 17, of 73 Gordon Avenue was killed in an automobile accident at Coaticook, Quebec. This accident happened on November 23, 1966. Silts and two other Berlin youths were in a car which rolled over, slid about sixty feet and struck a railroad storage shed. At this point, the vehicle caught fire, but police arrived at the scene before the flames could spread. Two other boys survived the accident, but were seriously injured. The young boys had never been to Canada and decided to make the trip during their school Thanksgiving vacation. It turned out to be a tragic trip for all involved. On the brighter side of Berlin’s history back in December of 1966, the life of one of Berlin’s most famous priests was saved by a curate. It took quick and accurate action by Reverend Joseph Cote to save Pastor Monsignor Alpheri Lauziere of St. Joseph Parish. Doctor Danais explained that Cote’s action stopped a massive hemorrhage in Lauziere’s leg, thus saving his life. Father Cote was in his room on Tuesday night December 6, when he faintly heard his name called. At first, he went downstairs, as the call seemed to come from that area. Then

revitalization of the downtown. He said it is an opportunity to increase the valuation of the community. He noted at one time the downtown represented 20 percent of the city’s valuation and was a major employer. Poulin said three clear themes emerged from the first listening session held in July. People wanted to see a vibrant downtown with more people, activities, and night life. They also wanted to see more accommodations such as hotels and events. And third, he said, they wanted to see the Public Service of N.H. park and the river play a more dominant role in the downtown. Since that first listening session, Poulin said the team has done an inventory of the downtown, reviewed old reports, conducted one- on-one interviews with merchants and downtown property owners, and performed a site and land use analysis. Wacker reviewed some of the findings of the design action plan. For the purpose of the study, the downtown is defined as the area from Glen Avenue Park north to St. Anne Church including both Main and Pleasant Streets. Wacker noted there are five main gateways to the downtown. One challenge, he said, is to improve signage for those entrances. He also described the different street scapes and observed the downtown contains some really nice architecture. Wacker noted there is at least 30 acres that comprise the Tondreau peninsula, offering opportunities for recreation and activities that the downtown needs to utilize. The issue
of Tondreau peninsula stirred considerable discussion with some suggesting the bridge needs to be more user friendly. Another suggestion was to paint murals on the fence and include signage explaining the hydro station penstock. Wacker said it would be good to open up other views of the river and park, using as an example Gill’s Park. Dick Poulin called for hosting concerts and putting in a bridge to the parking lot to allow snowmobiles to access the downtown. Stuart Arnett pointed out Berlin is the only city in the North Country. He noted the New Hampshire Grand initiative proposed promoting the city as the ‘base camp’ of the region. Arnett observed the downtown needs more accommodations and vibrancy. He said the ATV park is still being developed. He suggested looking north for tourists might be a good match for the city. Arnett said the downtown can also grow by increasing the city’s residential base. He said the housing infrastructure already exists and when the federal prison opens it should attract new people to the city. Growing that residential base will help increase business for the downtown - many merchants reported business has declined over the past five years as the population of the city has declined. While there are a lot of economic development groups serving the region, Arnett said there is a need for both a public and confidential advocate for the city. Grenier said the council has recognized that and is working to address it.

Gorham native selected for advanced Air Force program
INCIRLIK AIR BASE, Turkey -- A 13-year Air Force Airman with a line number for master sergeant was recently notified he had been selected for the Logistics Education Advancement Program, where he will work fuel-related logistics issues at the Air Force and Department of Defenselevel. Tech. Sgt. Aaron Gagnon, 39th Logistics Readiness Squadron NCO in charge of fixed facilities, will join the air staff at the Pentagon as one of only two Airmen in his career field selected this year. “I am very happy, excited and humbled to be selected for the position,” said Gagnon. “It makes me feel like the things I have done in the past have proven my worth for the fuels career field,” LEAP is a career-broadening education program designed to provide selected NCOs with on-the-job experience and training in special fuels logistics areas. The objective is to provide LEAP NCOs with a broader experience background. Each position is a three-year minimum assignment.
“At the air staff, I will gain knowledge and experience on Air Force fuelsrelated issues; and when I move over to the joint staff, I will gain knowledge and experience on fuels-related issues at the DoD-level,” said Gagnon. During his career, Gagnon said he has had a variety of fuel jobs that have prepared him for his upcoming position. “I am in charge of 10 hydrant systems, the military service station and the (liquid oxygen) storage area (which are) worth $17 million,” he explained. “I have worked in the Fuels Service Center for nine years, which will help me in some of the assigned duties because I have had to work with many outside agencies on and off base. Also, I had to project fuels receipts so we could meet mission requirements.” Gagnon’s supervisor said the technical sergeant’s experience and performance set him up for success in this unique assignment. “This is an amazing opportunity for (him),” said Senior Master Sgt. Jerry Pier Jr., 39th LRS Fuels superinten-

Certain roads closed to hunters during wind farm construction PHILLIPS BROOK -- Hunters and other outdoor recreationists who frequent the North Country should note that several roads near the construction site of the wind turbine project in Dummer, Millsfield, Odell, Dixville and Erving’s Location are currently closed and will remain closed this fall because of safety concerns related to the large number of employees and specialized equipment on site during the construction. Construction is currently underway on a renewable energy project being built by Brookfield Renewable Power. More than 300 employees are on site and construction will be active seven days a week until the project is completed, which is expected to be in early December 2011. A total of 33 wind turbines are being installed, a majority of them on the ridgeline in the western section of Millsfield. The remaining wind turbines will be located near Dixville Peak in Dixville. The area that is closed to “non-essential” vehicles and people -- is known locally as Dummer Pond Road; it begins on the west side of Route 16 in the southern part of Dummer and goes northward to Erving’s Location. To the north, a second smaller closure involves the West Branch of Clear Stream off Route 26 near the Millsfield/ Dixville town line. All other logging roads in the general area are open, similar to past years.
The following breakdown clarifies which roads are closed and which roads are open during the 2011 hunting seasons: * The entire length of Dummer Pond Road is closed. This area also includes the upper sections of Phillips Brook to the west and side roads to the east that connect with Newell Brook. * The lower 6 miles of Phillips Brook Road, accessed by Paris Road in Stark, are open to sportsmen and vehicular traffic up to the newly installed gate. * Newell Brook Road is open to sportsmen and vehicular traffic. Roads branching off Newell Brook Road to the west have gates prohibiting access to Dummer Pond Road. * Millsfield Pond Road and Signal Mt. Road off of Route 26 are open to sportsmen and vehicular traffic, allowing access into the majority of the Town of Millsfield. * To the north, the West Branch of Clear Stream is closed from Route 26 near the Log Haven Restaurant. “Please be respectful of these temporary closures and respect Brookfield Renewable Power’s concerns as this renewable energy project comes to fruition,” said Lt. Douglas Gralenski of N.H. Fish and Game Department. “In the short term, safety, to both the workers on site and the gen-

eral population as a whole, mandates this temporary closure. As soon as construction is complete and the project transitions from construction to production, sportsmen and other members of the public will once again have access to these lands.” Brookfield Renewable Power has a long-term investment in the wind turbine project and anticipates a long, healthy relationship with the communities and citizens of the area. “The members and management of the Brookfield and RMT project team, including all of the local contractors and construction workers, sincerely appreciate the patience and support of the community, and especially the anticipated cooperation and understanding of the sportsmen and professional guides who are temporarily inconvenienced by this for the 2011 hunting season,” said Pip Decker of Brookfield Renewable Power. “Safety of our workers is of paramount importance to us. We are confident that both sportsmen and guides share the same concerns for these men and women, and do so following in the finest tradition of the outdoor sportsman. At the completion of the project, all roads and access will be reopened.” For more information on the renewable energy project, visit http://www.brookfieldpower.com.

gram pick up most of the cost of the analysis but will also cover 20 percent of the actual project cost and make available low interest loans. Berlin BetterBuildings Community Manager Cimbria Badenhausen said the commercial program is open to retail businesses, nonprofit organizations, and professional firms in Berlin. The first step is to join the Retail Merchants Association of N.H. at a cost of $100. RMANH will then pick up 50 percent of the cost of the energy analysis and Berlin BetterBuildings will cover 25 percent. Badenhausen said an energy analysis can range in cost from $2,000 to $25,000 depending on the size and type of building. Once the energy analysis is complete, the commercial property owner will receive a report including a preliminary scope of work. If the owner decides to go forward and undertake at least some of the energy measures outlined, Berlin BetterBuildings will pick up another 25 percent of the cost of the analysis minus $500. Badenhausen said that means the commercial property owner gets the analysis done for $500 plus the $100 membership cost for RMANH. In addition, RMANH will rebate 20 percent of the actual project costs. And through an arrangement with Northway Bank and Laconia Savings Bank, the program has arranged for low interest loans to carry out energy improvements. For small projects costing under $20,000, BetterBuildings offers a one percent loan with terms up to ten years. For medium to large projects costing over $20,000, BetterBuildings offers a fixed 3.5 percent interest loan for five years. In many cases, Badenhausen
noted the projected energy savings will cover the loan payment. â€œA great partnership has developed between Berlin BetterBuildings and the Retail Merchants Association which will provide Berlin commercial property owners unprecedented financial incentives to implement energy efficiency measures. I hope all the Berlin commercial property owners call or email me very soon to take advantage of this opportunity,â€? said Badenhausen. Eleven commercial property owners who attended the Moving Downtown Forward listening session Tuesday received $500 certificates for the energy analysis, meaning those owners will only have to pay the $100 RMANH fee. Badenhausen said those lucky owners are basically getting their analysis done for free. Berlin BetterBuildings also has a program available for residential properties. The average cost of the residential energy analysis is $600 but for a limited time, Berlin BetterBuildings is covering $250 of the audit, reducing the cost to $350 for the homeowner. The homeowner gets to select an auditor from a list of qualified firms. Berlin BetterBuildings also has low interest loans and rebates available for residential home owners who undertake energy improvements. For questions or more information about the program, interested people can contact Badenhausen at 326-6166 or go to www.berlinbetterbuildings.com. BetterBuildings is also co-hosting the North Country Energy Fair on Sept. 24 at White Mountains Community College and will have a booth there to provide information on its programs.
Bill Smith of Building Diagnostics (above) performed an energy analysis of Caron Building Center in Berlin. Smith is a qualified Berlin Better Building energy analyst. Observing are Mike Caron of Caron Building and Cimbria Badenhausen of Berlin BetterBuildings which is sponsoring a program aimed at helping commercial property become more energy efficient. Preparing to do a test to measure leakage at the Morin Shoe/Inner Glimpse building (l) are Bill Smith of Building Diagnostics and trainee Geoffrey Parkerson. The downtown retail store is taking part in a program sponsored by Berlin BetterBuildings to make commercial properties in the city more energy efficient.

You’ll connect people, and they will be connected forever after, whether they want to be or not. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Once again, you’ll be involved in a certain dumb argument that flares up every month or so. This is getting old. It’s time to acknowledge that there is validity on both sides and agree to disagree. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are dreams that can come true without a timeline or method of accountability attached to them. However, your dream has a better chance if these elements are firmly in place. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re a keen observer of the human condition, which has a way of breaking your heart on a regular basis. Only broken hearts really know how to love. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You possess the kind of talents that are often not readily recognized by the general public. And yet today, you’ll be seen for the amazing creature you really are. You will shine. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 15). You know what you want, and you have a way of putting things that makes people snap to attention. Quick bursts of joy let you know that you’re on the right track with a relationship. End-ofyear family celebrations galvanize the troops. In 2012, you will march toward a new goal with your “people.” Libra and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 31, 25, 1 and 29.

Stop asking yourself questions, and you’ll quickly become clear-headed. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is a wonderful night for dating, especially someone you have enjoyed dating before. It will be like the experience of re-entering a dream at the point at which you left off. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Good intentions may not guarantee good results, just as ill intentions do not always produce negative results. However, on some level, the feeling behind things can always be felt. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You spring into action helping others. Note that some of the people you are helping are not nearly as needy as you. However, you see yourself as capable and limitless. Though you have needs, you don’t dwell on them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may agree to run a tedious errand, meet with someone you’re not entirely comfortable around or finish up a nasty bit of work. You’ll operate from a deep sense of responsibility and because you just want to get it over with. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sometimes the way to make magic is to study the trick and practice it over and over until you can effectively fool an audience. Other times, like now, making magic is simple.

SNEAKING SNACKS INTO MOVIE SETS POOR EXAMPLE FOR KIDS
DEAR ABBY: I go to movies occasionally with my niece “Connie” and her two kids. Although the theater has a sign “No Outside Food or Drinks Allowed,” Connie sneaks snacks in in her oversized purse, then doles them out after the lights go down. I’m not talking about a couple of candy bars; she brings bags of candy, chips and cans of soda. While I agree with my niece that the price of refreshments is outrageous, I also believe it’s the theater operators’ prerogative to set prices and policy. I suggested Connie skip the snacks during the movie and take the kids out for ice cream afterward, but she said she didn’t want to “deprive” them. When I offered to pay, she said it wasn’t about the money, it was “the principle, and besides, “everybody else does it.” I feel my niece is teaching her kids it’s OK to break rules you find inconvenient as long as you can get away with it. I enjoy the outings with them so I’ve dropped the subject for the sake of harmony, but it still bothers me. Connie probably thinks I’m a critical old crank who’s out of step with the times. I’d love your opinion. -- PAYING FOR MY POPCORN IN OREGON DEAR PAYING: Here it is: Your thinking is spot on. Your niece’s behavior is dishonest, and children model their behavior on the example set by their parents. Connie’s excuse that everybody does it is a cop-out. Because “everyone” does something doesn’t make it right. Theater owners earn a large portion of their profits not from ticket sales, but from their concession stands. I am often struck by the amount of food I see purchased before people enter a theater -- large tubs of popcorn, king-sized candy bars, bucket-sized soft drinks and nachos. What does this say about
us? Obesity is at record levels in the U.S. We are repeatedly cautioned not to eat in front of the television set. The munching going on in theaters is another example of mindless, compulsive eating. If Connie doesn’t want to “deprive” her children, she should feed them a healthy meal before they go to the movie so they won’t be hungry. That’s my opinion, so I’m glad you asked me. DEAR ABBY: After six years of marriage I am seven months pregnant. I never wanted children and did not expect this to happen. I am determined to be an excellent mother, but it’s an intellectual exercise for me. I feel nothing for this baby and I have a hard time imagining our future. I also hate being pregnant. I can’t find any websites for women like me -- they’re filled with women cooing over their bellies and fantasizing over their babies-to-be. I mentioned my feelings (or lack thereof) to my husband and he became furious with me. Is there something wrong with me? -- LACKS THE MOTHERING GENE DEAR LACKS: No, there’s nothing “wrong” with you. You’re just not particularly maternal. I’m sure many women have felt as you do because more than half the pregnancies in the U.S. are “unplanned.” Discuss this with your obstetrician to be sure you’re not suffering from pre-partum depression. When your baby arrives I am sure that you will fall in love with him or her as many other mothers have. Your husband may have reacted the way he did because he felt it was in some way a rejection of him, or because he DOES want children.

Coos businesses among those eligible for SBA disaster loans CONCORD - U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) encourages businesses of all sizes and private, nonprofit organizations affected by the severe storms and flooding from August 26, through September 6, to apply for disaster loans. Home business and vacation rental owners need to be aware they are also eligible for disaster loans from the SBA. The disaster declaration for New Hampshire covers the counties of Carroll and Grafton, which are eligible for both physical damage and economic injury disaster loans from the SBA. In addition small businesses and some private nonprofit organizations in the following adjacent counties are eligible to apply for SBA Economic Injury
Disaster Loans (EIDL): Belknap, Coos, Merrimack, Strafford and Sullivan. Interest rates are as low as 3 percent for nonprofit organizations and 4 percent for businesses with terms up to 30 years. Loan amounts and terms are set by the SBA and are based on each applicant’s financial condition. SBA disaster loans are for uninsured losses. Business owners should not wait for insurance settlements before applying for SBA disaster loans. The SBA will consider making a loan for the total loss up to its loan limits, provided the borrower agrees to use insurance proceeds to reduce or repay their loan. Types of Business Loans:
· Businesses and private nonprofit organizations of any size may borrow up to $2 million to repair or replace disaster damaged or destroyed real estate, machinery and equipment, inventory and other business assets. The SBA may increase a loan up to 20 percent of the total amount of disaster damage to real estate and/or leasehold improvements, as verified by SBA, to make improvements that lessen the risk of property damage by future disasters of the same kind. · For small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, small businesses engaged in aquaculture and most private non-profit organizations of all sizes, the SBA offers EIDL to help meet working capital
needs caused by the disaster. EIDL assistance is available regardless of whether the business suffered any physical property damage. Your first step is to call the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at 1-800-621FEMA (3362). If you use TTY, call 1-800-462-7585. If you use 711Relay or Video Relay Service (VRS), call 1-800-621-3362 or online at www.disasterassistance.gov The filing deadline to return applications for physical property damage is November 7, 2011. The deadline to return economic injury applications is June 7, 2012.

Lady Huskies earn second win beating Colebrook 4-1 BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
GORHAM -- Junior Jessica Stewart scored a pair of goals and assisted another, helping her team mates to a 4-1 victory over the Colebrook Mohawks in Gorham Friday. The only goal of the first half came about 10 minutes into the contest. There Stewart blasted a direct kick past the Colebrook keeper for a 1-0 lead. The goal was Stewart’s first on the Fall. In the second half, the Gorham offense began to take advvantage of their opportunities. The Huskies scored three times off of corner kicks. The first goal to make it 2-0, Stewart launched her kick perfectly to the center of the goal area. The ball found the head of sophomore sniper Lily Keenan to give the Huskies a two goal advantage. The goal was the fourth of the year for Keenan. The next opportunity off of a corner was initially blocked and the Mohawks attempted to clear. A bouncing ball stayed in the Colebrook end and found the foot of
Leslee Kenison. Kenison fired to the far corner to make it 3-0 for the home team. It was Kenison’s third goal on the season. The last Gorham chance came on another corner. This time Stewart hooked her shot in towards the goal and when the Colebrook keeper mis-handled the shot, Stewart had her second goal of the game and her sixth point of the Fall. The Colebrook girls scored late in the game off of a deflection to make the final score 4-1. The goal was scored on new Huskie goal keeper in freshman Brook Nadeau. For the game, Nadeau had eight blocks for her first varsity win and the Colebrook keeper made 11 saves. Gorham held an eight to three advantage in corner kicks. The Huskies are at the .500 mark and will travel to Groveton on Tueasday to take on the Purple Eagles. GHS 1 3-4 CHS 0 1-1 Scoring: GHS Stewart 2, Kenison, Keenan, CHS-1, Saves: GHS Nadeau 8.

GORHAM — Jay’s Quik Lube has a new home. After 20 years in business, owner Jay Holmes said it was time to respond to economic indicators and move his business into the more populated area of Gorham’s Main Street. That mission is accomplished and the ribbon was cut on the new location, next to the Sears plaza, on Friday, Sept. 9. Holmes explained that the traffic at his former location, in the Shell station on the Berlin-Gorham Road, tapered off considerably as stores in the nearby plazas closed their doors. “We had to move to stay vibrant,” he said. Business was already brisk on Friday as Holmes celebrated his grand opening with free coffee and donuts and $15 lube oil and filter specials. Cars began jockeying in and out of the bays before the 9 a.m. ribbon cutting, which was attended by the representatives from two of the
businesses suppliers as well as local politicians and well wishers. “Let the good work continue under Jay Holmes and his staff here,” said Executive Councilor Ray Burton as he snipped the red ribbon to mark the business’ new chapter. Jay’s Quik Lube is not a full service garage, but specializes in oil changes, tires, and state inspections. “What we do, we do well,” Holmes said, pointing out that limiting the services he provides allows him to offer prompt and convenient walk-in service to his customers. Also present at the event was Androscoggin Valley ATV Club vice president Randy Boutin, who was quick to relate his appreciation for Holmes’ recent donation of a Bush Hog to the ATV club. Pointing out that the equipment would save club members a significant amount of back breaking work while maintaining trails in Jericho Park, Boutin offered his sincere thanks.
Morrissette attends LPL Financial national conference BERLIN -- Stephen J. Morrissette recently attended focus11, a leading financial services industry conference hosted by LPL Financial, the nation’s number one independent broker-dealer. Held in Chicago, August 7–10, focus11 was one of the industry’s largest gatherings of independent financial advisors, and remains the industry’s premier sales and education event. Approximately 5,000 attendees from around the country assembled for the opportunity to learn new strategies and skills, expand knowledge in numerous product areas and network with peers and industry experts. They also heard from influential speakers who addressed current events and financial industry trends. The speakers included Condoleezza Rice, 66th United States Secretary of State; Michael Eisner, former CEO of The Walt Disney Company; and Sir Ken Robinson, author of Out of Our Minds. Additionally, through the hundreds of business sessions, technology training sessions and continu-
ing education classes at this event, LPL Financial advisors gained valuable knowledge to help them continually improve the service they offer to clients and operate their independent practices more efficiently. Bill Dwyer, president of National Sales and Marketing for LPL Financial, noted that the conference’s theme, A Focus on the Future, speaks to the current economic outlook and its opportunities and challenges for advisors and their clients: “Our enduring mission at LPL Financial is to support our independent advisors as they help their clients reach their life goals. We believe our ability to enable the delivery of objective and conflict-free advice through trusted local advisors is critical in this ongoing effort.” Unlike many brokerage firms, LPL Financial does not develop its own proprietary investment products, so the unbiased advice given by its advisors is based solely on individual client needs.
