Funding for federal prison a step closer to reality BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN --Funding for the federal prison in Berlin moved another step closer to reality Thursday. The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee voted 29-1 to approve a subcommittee spending bill that includes funding for the Berlin prison. The bill now moves to the full Senate for consideration. The House version of the appropriations bill also includes language urging the Bureau of Prisons to prioritize funding for activation of facilities where
construction has already been completed. U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) as well as U.S. Congressman Charlie Bass (R-N.H.) all welcomed the recent action on funding for the prison. “I am glad that this funding has been included in the Senate’s 2012 spending plan, and I look forward to working with my colleagues in the New Hampshire delegation to see that this badly needed facility finally opens. “Taxpayers have already paid to build this prison, it makes no sense for it to stand empty,” said Shaheen.
“It will take all members of the delegation, in the Senate and House, working together to get Berlin open. This facility will ease over-crowding in America’s prisons while providing jobs in the North Country, and I will continue to make the case for Berlin as the appropriations process continues,” said Ayotte. “It is imperative that we get the Berlin prison open as soon as possible to help create jobs and revitalize the North Country economy,” said Bass. The 1,280-bed prison was finished last fall and the region is anxious for it to open with its 300 jobs.
Laidlaw, Cate Street spar over payment BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN -- A dispute over payment has broken out between Laidlaw BioPower and Cate Street Capital. On Friday, Laidlaw Energy Group, a publicly traded company and member of Laidlaw BioPower, issued a press release accusing Newco Energy, an affiliate of Cate Street, of failing to make good on a purchase and sales agreement to the tune of about $5 million. According to Laidlaw Executive Vice President Lou Bravakis, Cate Street made an initial payment of an undisclosed amount to purchase the project from them on August 27, 2010. Bravakis said that first payment was substantially less
than the $5 million, which was to be paid at the time of Cate Street’s financial closing according to the agreement. “We hinged all our hard work on that payment,” Bravakis said. That financial closing took place at least two weeks ago and no payment has been received by Laidlaw. “My colleagues and I spent over four years working on the Berlin biomass project. Long before Cate Street Capital even existed we saw the potential in the former pulp mill to help turn around Berlin’s economy though renewable power generation and worked tirelessly to make that potential a reality,” said Bravakis. “I don’t mind the fact see SPAR page 9

GORHAM — Pending approval of language, the town of Gorham and Walmart have reached an agreement on tax value for the last five years. Town Manager Robin Frost said she summed up the highlights of the agreement between Walmart and the town at last Monday’s meeting. The draft document was not yet available, and will be subject to approval on both sides before being finalized. Frost said after months of nego-

tiation, Walmart agreed to set their 2011 assessed value at $15 million, $5 million less than it had initially been valued. They also agreed to drop their abatement requests for prior years, going back to 2007. This change will reduce the retail giant’s tax 2011 commitment to the town by less than $140,000, Frost said. Walmart had initially proposed their $20 million valuation be reduced to around $5 million. The matter had been expected to go to the Bureau of Tax and Land Appeals today (Sept. 20) see AGREEMENT page 9

Women take over the sitcom (NY Times) — A cluster of new sitcoms are debuting about young, single women. On CBS on Monday, Kat Dennings makes her debut as the sardonic star of “2 Broke Girls,” and her sidekick is sweet, soigné and a punching bag. Zooey Deschanel isn’t mean in “New Girl,” a Fox show that begins Tuesday, but she is cast, somewhat implausibly, as a nerdy loser who needs the help of three male roommates to get a date. (Fox promos try to finesse her beauty with the word “adorkable.”) On “Whitney” an NBC sitcom having its premiere on Thursday, the comedian Whitney Cummings plays a version of herself, and that Whitney is not in the least bit adorkable. If anything, she is comically abominable, so abomical. And Whitney’s two best friends are no day at the beach either. All three sitcoms have stirred a lot of advance attention, mostly because their stars have industry cachet, and so do the women who are calling the shots behind the scenes. Besides creating her own show, Ms. Cummings, with Michael Patrick King of “Sex and the City,” is behind “2 Broke Girls.” (“New Girl” is the work of Liz Meriwether, who wrote the movie “No Strings Attached.” Together these programs suggest that a new cohort is riding in on the coattails of Roseanne Barr, Tracey Ullman, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and “Bridesmaids.”

Fighting erupts for second day in Yemeni capital
SANA, Yemen (NY Times) — Violence convulsed the streets of Yemen’s capital for a second day on Monday as government security forces battled soldiers who have joined antigovernment protesters in their movement to force President Ali Abdullah Saleh to resign. It was the worst violence since March in Yemen, the Arab world’s most impoverished country and a haven for Islamic militants.
Medical officials in the capital said at least 28 people were killed on Monday, pushing the death toll from two days of fighting in Sana, the capital, to more than 50 — most of them unarmed protesters — and raising fears here that the escalation of deadly mayhem is hurtling Yemen toward a civil war. President Saleh, the long-time autocrat and American ally who has been recuperating in Saudi Arabia from an assassina-
tion attempt at his presidential compound more than three months ago, has vowed to return to Yemen, despite his repeated pledges to relinquish the post in a negotiated transfer of power. The protesters and their mutinous-soldier allies oppose any solution that would keep Mr. Saleh or one of his subordinates in charge, and the prospect for any negotiations seemed more tenuous on Monday.
Obama vows veto if deficit Retiree benefits for the plan has no tax increases military could face cuts
WASHINGTON (NY Times) — President Obama called on Monday for Congress to adopt his “balanced” plan combining entitlement cuts, tax increases and war savings to reduce the federal deficit by more than $3 trillion over the next 10 years, and said he would veto any approach that relied solely on spending reductions to address the fiscal shortfall. “I will not support any plan that puts all the burden for closing our deficit on ordinary Americans,” he said. “And I will veto any bill that changes benefits for those who rely

on Medicare but does not raise serious revenues by asking the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations to pay their fair share.” His plan, presented in a speech in the Rose Garden of the White House, is the administration’s latest move in the long-running power struggle over deficit reduction. It comes as a joint HouseSenate committee begins work in earnest to spell out, at the least, a more modest savings plan that Congress could approve by the end of the year in keeping with the debt deal reached this summer.
(NY Times) — As Washington looks to squeeze savings from once-sacrosanct entitlements like Social Security and Medicare, another big social welfare system is growing as rapidly, but with far less scrutiny: the health and pension benefits of military retirees. Military pensions and health care for active and retired troops now cost the government about $100 billion a year, representing an expanding portion of both the Pentagon budget — about $700 billion a year, including war costs — and the national debt, which together finance the programs. The intense push in Congress this year to reduce the debt and the possibility that the Pentagon might have to begin trimming core programs like weapons procurement, research, training and construction have suddenly made retiree benefits vulnerable, military officials and experts say.

Climb Against Cancer raises $66,000 for Jen’s Friends BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — In the fight against cancer, you can never have too many friends. That's the motto of the local cancer patient support organization, Jen's Friends, and it proved to be true anew this past Saturday, as 478 hikers registered for the 14th annual Climb Against Cancer at Cranmore Mountain Resort. The hikers through pledges raised $52,000 at the event, with another $14,000 expected in corporate gifts to bring this year's total to $66,000. “It was less than the $84,000 we raised last year, but we're not complaining at all — in this economy, it's great, and we thank everyone,” said Jen's Friends board president Kathy Sweeney Monday. “Our total could rise some more, as some times people go online and make donations.” The top fund-raising team was Jeanne Limmer's Life, Art and Dance team, which raised $3,980. Members of Limmer's AXIS Dance Company performed at the summit in tributes to the fight against cancer. Limmer is a breast cancer survivor of 10 years. Also entertaining at the event was Stacy Sand and Mango Groove. The top individual fund-raiser was Alison Bergeron, whom Sweeney believes raised “around $2,000.” All of the hikers received a water bottle, T-shirt and lunch. Jen's Friends is one of the official beneficiaries of Valley Originals, which donated food, along with other local businesses. Jen's Friends has served more than 250 clients over the past 14 years. It is currently helping 58 local patients. $1 million in 14 years This year's amount adds to the $1 million that the organization has raised since being founded in 1998. Jen's Friends has celebrated that milestone over the past month with events that have included a free community concert at Cranmore Aug. 18 and a car show at the Fryeburg Fire Station. Jen's Friends was created in honor of the late Jen Hill, who died at age 26 from a brain tumor. She gave her OK to her brother's fraternity brothers to start the organization in her name, provided that it helped others battling cancer. Members of the Hill family were once again present at the event, including her parents, Leona and Arthur, and her brother, Doug. Arthur Hill serves on the organization's board of directors. Board members in addition to Sweeney include vice president Wendy Holmes; treasurer Nancy Davis, secretary Hallie Humphrey, incoming president Corinne Reidy, Ruth Ann Fabrizio, Karen Stancik, Roxanne Major, Marta Ramsey, Scot Lajoie, Mike Lynch, and Jill
MacMillan, and new members Charlie Hanlon, Jim MacMillan and Ron Force. ‘Raised here, stays here’ The money that is raised through the event stays in the Mount Washington Valley. According to Sweeney and Holmes, it used to be that only 92 percent went directly toward the expenses of patients — but that was fixed through the support of a local benefactor, Fran Savard. According to Holmes, when told that it would require a donation of $8,500 to $11,000 per year to pay for the all volunteer organization's office expenses, Savard replied, “Consider it done.” “There's no overhead, thanks to Francis Savard,” said Holmes. “He reimburses us for the insurance we need, our phone, our postage, our rent for office space at Settlers' Green.” Memorial placards were placed alongside the hiking route, in honor of cancer patients who have lost their battle. As people of all ages made their climb, many would pause to reflect at the signs. So many lives have been touched by cancer. Megan Croce of the Erinallabela team shared her story below: “We hiked in the memory of my sister, Erin DeRosa, who lost her battle with breast cancer Oct. 6, 2010, three days after she participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Boston on Oct. 3. She was in a wheelchair but got up at the end and walked the last quarter-mile on her own! It was quite moving. She was only 43. “Her team name in Boston was Erinellabella also, and she was HUGE into awareness and fundraising but wanted to see our money go further. I suggested Jen's Friends since it's 100 percent donations to patients,” said Croce. “She agreed, but unfortunately we never got the chance to hike together. I just wanted to share this with you — I'm sad we missed the ceremony, the hike was wonderful.” They were joined by local fundraiser Steffani Adaska, who hiked in honor of her sister, Leslie Navarino, who recently underwent a double mastectomy. According to the website, www.firstgiving. com, Adaska prior to the hike had raised $1,329.61 toward her goal of $10,000. Each $10 donation is entered into a drawing for Native Sunglasses from Synergy in North Conway. Each $100 is entered to win helicopter ride over the region. For more information about Jen's Friends, call 356-5083 or visit www. jensfriends.org. Looking ahead, the American Cancer Society's North Conway Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event is set for Oct. 16 at the Staples parking lot at 10:30 a.m. Visit makingstrides.acsevents.org for more information.

Presentation to better understand mental health issues held in my husband’s memory To the editor: I had the closest thing to what the ordinary person would consider a very good life - a happy marriage, a loving extended family, a decent income, a comfortable home in a pleasant neighborhood, good health and great friends. Then, in a heartbeat, prominent health issues developed and seriously affected our lives. Along with the physical conditions came a sense of desperation which quickly turned to depression. Never in the many years of marriage did it occur to me that mental health issues would so seriously affect us. I somehow associated mental health with a permanent and on-going condition that affected “others”. Never did I think it could so easily become a part of my life. Depression quickly changed the course of our lives as a family. Everything we worked so hard to achieve no longer had meaning and we desperately needed help. Getting that help was a challenge but once we connected with the mental health folks, it brought us to a more stable approach to dealing with the reality that we were faced
with. Although the depression was well managed for a few years, it quickly re-surfaced and led to an unfortunate outcome but my purpose in writing this letter is to let everyone know that we could not have faced our adversities without the help of the professionals and staff from Mental Health. If anyone out there reading this feels like you can no longer handle your life, please seek the assistance of the fine mental health people. Louise Johnson, her staff at Northern Human Services, NAMI and myself have coordinated a presentation funded by donations in my husband’s memory to help better understand mental health issues. There will be presentations by Andrew Archer and Annette Carbonneau, of NAMI, whose lives have been impacted by mental illness. This presentation will be held in the Fortier Library at the White Mountain Community College on Thursday evening, Sept. 29, from 6-8 p.m. Please consider attending. Jackie Catello Berlin

The Bleeding Cure
Doctors used to believe that by draining a patient’s blood they could purge the evil “humors” that were thought to cause disease. In reality, of course, all their bloodletting did was make the patient weaker, and more likely to succumb. Fortunately, physicians no longer believe that bleeding the sick will make them healthy. Unfortunately, many of the makers of economic policy still do. And economic bloodletting isn’t just inflicting vast pain; it’s starting to undermine our long-run growth prospects. Some background: For the past year and a half, policy discourse in both Europe and the United States has been dominated by calls for fiscal austerity. By slashing spending and reducing deficits, we were told, nations could restore confidence and drive economic revival. And the austerity has been real. In Europe, troubled nations like Greece and Ireland have imposed savage cuts, even as stronger nations have imposed milder austerity programs of their own. In the United States, the modest federal stimulus of 2009 has faded out, while state and local governments have slashed their budgets, so that over all we’ve had a de facto move toward austerity not so different from Europe’s. Strange to say, however, confidence hasn’t surged. Somehow, businesses and consumers seem much more concerned about the lack of customers and jobs, respectively, than they are reassured by the fiscal righteousness of their governments. And growth seems to be stalling, while unemployment remains disastrously high on both sides of the Atlantic. But, say apologists for the bad results so far, shouldn’t we be focused on the long run rather than short-run pain? Actually, no: the economy needs real help now, not hypothetical payoffs a decade from now. In any case, evidence is starting to emerge that the economy’s “short run” troubles — now in their fourth year, and being made worse by the focus on austerity — are taking a toll on its long-run prospects as well. Consider, in particular, what is happening to America’s manufacturing base. In normal times manufacturing capacity rises 2 or 3 percent every year. But faced with a persistently weak economy, industry has been reducing, not increasing, its productive capacity. At this point, according to Federal Reserve estimates, manufacturing capacity is almost 5 percent lower than it was in December 2007. What this means is that if and when a real recovery finally gets going, the econ-
omy will run into capacity constraints and production bottlenecks much sooner than it should. That is, the weak economy, which is partly the result of budget-cutting, is hurting the future as well as the present. Furthermore, the decline in manufacturing capacity is probably only the beginning of the bad news. Similar cuts in capacity will probably take place in the service sector — indeed, they may already be taking place. And with longterm unemployment at its highest level since the Great Depression, there is a real risk that many of the unemployed will come to be seen as unemployable. Oh, and the brunt of those cuts in public spending is falling on education. Somehow, laying off hundreds of thousands of schoolteachers doesn’t seem like a good way to win the future. In fact, when you combine the growing evidence that fiscal austerity is reducing our future prospects with the very low interest rates on U.S. government debt, it’s hard to avoid a startling conclusion: budget austerity may well be counterproductive even from a purely fiscal point of view, because lower future growth means lower tax receipts. What should be happening? The answer is that we need a major push to get the economy moving, not at some future date, but right now. For the time being we need more, not less, government spending, supported by aggressively expansionary policies from the Federal Reserve and its counterparts abroad. And it’s not just pointy-headed economists saying this; business leaders like Google’s Eric Schmidt are saying the same thing, and the bond market, by buying U.S. debt at such low interest rates, is in effect pleading for a more expansionary policy. And to be fair, some policy players seem to get it. President Obama’s new jobs plan is a step in the right direction, while some board members of the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England — though not, sad to say, the European Central Bank — have been calling for much more growthoriented policies. What we really need, however, is to convince a substantial number of people with political power or influence that they’ve spent the last year and a half going in exactly the wrong direction, and that they need to make a U-turn. It’s not going to be easy. But until that U-turn happens, the bleeding — which is making our economy weaker now, and undermining its future at the same time — will continue.
Androscoggin Valley-opoly is coming to the area BERLIN -- With state and local funding being cut, Tri-County CAP’s Transportation Division Director Beverly Raymond heard about a successful fundraiser that a transit agency in Vermont had done and she thought it would be a wonderful fundraiser to do in her own community. If you haven’t heard about it
yet, it is called Androscoggin Valley-opoly and is a board game with a local flavor. The board is similar to the well known Monopoly Game but instead of the properties being called Atlantic Avenue or Boardwalk the player will land on Rudy’s Market or the Yokohama! All of the see VALLEY-OPOLY page 5

New mental health provider joins CCFHS BERLIN -- Norine Elliott, CS, APRN, has joined Coos County Family Health Services as a mental health specialist. She is available by referral from the patient’s regular primary care provider for medication consults and short-term psychotherapy. No stranger to the North Country, Elliott has lived in the area for the past 31 years, and has brought her children up in Lancaster, Randolph and Berlin. As a Berlin resident for the past 16 years, she taught the psychiatric nursing curriculum at White Mountains Community College and received the Commissioner’s Award for Teaching Excellence in 2005. Elliott started her career at the age of 16 as an aide at the New Hampshire State Hospital where her mother served as assistant director of nursing, and knew immediately she wanted to specialize in psychiatric nursing. She received her Bachelor of Science in nursing from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, and her Master of Science in psychiatric nursing from Boston College in Boston, Mass. She
started as an evening charge nurse on the in-patient psychiatric unit at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in Hanover, NH, and then worked for Northern Human Services in Berlin as a psychotherapist. Elliott has also held part time jobs in Littleton, Lancaster and Jefferson as a psychiatric consultant while teaching full-time at White Mountains Community College. Having gained an overview of mental health services in the North Country, she finds the recent reduction in services for developmentally disabled and mental health patients “tragic.” However, she noted that because of the widespread use of information technology, her work is much less fragmented than it used to be, because all the patient’s health records are accessible in one place. “I am very excited about being of service to the community, especially at this time,” Elliott said. “This area in particular has wide-scale stressors from poverty, alcohol and substance abuse, and seasonal affective disorder,” all of which are challenges that add to
individual issues. Elliott is also certified in holistic nursing and herbal medicine, and is a certified Kripalu Yoga instructor. “I really believe in preventative care,
especially in our society which is so driven,” she said. Naturopathic remedies have been investigated by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, and can be milder on the patient’s neurologic system as well as having fewer side effects. “But,” she added, “the patient is always the best resource for letting you know how a substance works for them. You have to listen to the patient and not just get information from pharmaceutical companies.” Elliott lives in Berlin with her husband, John, a retired IT program manager for a communications company. Their blended family includes five children, all grown. Her son, who is developmentally disabled, lives independently, works at Gill’s Flowers and volunteers at Androscoggin Valley Hospital. She enjoys hiking and gardening, and plans to finish climbing the 4000-footers this summer. “I have only Mount Carrigain and the Twin Mountains left to complete my goal,” she said.

Tri-County CAP thanks area businesses and parents of ‘A Global Journey’ BERLIN -- “Thank you local businesses and parents for supporting the Children’s Summer Program entitled, “A Global Journey”, said Dori Ducharme, CFO of Tri-County CAP. Tri-County Community Action Program launched the children’s camp last summer,following a very successful April school vacation week (funded primarily with ARRA funds). “Both were such a success we’ve been running children’s programming ever since,” said Ducharme. “’Winter Wonder Week”’ is held during February school vacation, “Earth Week” is held during April school vacation (in celebration of Earth Day), and summers bring children together to explore various countries at ‘A Global Journey’.” This summer 44 children ages 4-12 spent the first week in the
United States of America celebrating Independence Day, then children visited Spain, Egypt, France, Brazil, Ireland, and Greece, said Ducharme. Children participated in numerous crafts, activities, and games that related to that country. Some highlights were making Spanish Ships, Tile Trivets, and Pablo Picasso Art; Egyptian Pyramids and the Sphinx; Eiffel Tower and Mona Lisa Art; Brazilian Fuxico Flowers and Rainforest Dioramas; Family Crests and Titanic Ship Challenge; and the Greece Olympics. Fridays were a favorite to most children as they made their own lunch, ingredients and menu being authentic to that country, she said. Children also split into three age groups on Friday afternoons to make display boards illustrating facts they learned throughout the week about that specific country

that Cate Street Capital has taken all the credit for much of the hard work we have done, but I do object to the fact that they have not honored their clear written agreement with us, have provided no reasonable basis for not doing so, and are forcing us to take extreme measures to collect what is rightly owed to us.” Speaking for Cate Street Capital, Scott Tranchemontagne of Montagne Communications, would not elaborate the details, saying only, “there’s a disagreement in the terms of our agreement with Laidlaw and it’s being worked out. It will get resolved.” According to the Laidlaw press release, that resolution will come through legal channels as they “pursue all remedies available to them, including instituting binding arbitration as provided in the purchase agreement.” Bravakis added, “The Berlin biomass plant is projected to have a revenue stream of over $1.3 billion over the next 20 years and is also believed
•#2 Hea tin g O il•K ero sen e •Pro pa n e •O ffRo a d Diesel •24-Ho u rEm ergen cy Service
to be eligible for a federal cash grant of approximately $82 million due 60 days after the plant commences operations. John Halle and Cate Street Capital purchased a very good project from us and we expect them to honor their agreement with us and pay what they agreed to pay.” Tranchemontage said the dispute would have no anticipated effect on the project moving forward or the construction schedule. Construction is expected to begin late this month and the 75MW power plant is planned to be online by fall 2013. Cate Street announced earlier this month that it closed on the financing for the $275 million project securing $200 million in senior notes and $72.5 million in equity. The power plant, when completed, is expected to be the largest in New Hampshire and among the largest in the Northeast, employing approximately 40 people. The construction of the plant is expected to create around 400 jobs.

Air Force clarinet quartet to return to the valley
GORHAM -- Last year audiences in Gorham were introduced to and amazed by the Bay State Winds Clarinet Quartet, an Air Force sponsored ensemble that is the one of the finest of its kind. They will return to Gorham on Sunday, October 9, at p.m., performing at Gorham Town Hall. They have added a concert this year in Berlin, and will be performing at the Berlin City Hall on Thursday, October 6, at 7:30 p.m. Berlin and Gorham will be saluted and serenaded with a memorable evening of music by the Clarinet Quartet, which derives from the US Air Force Band of Liberty. The Quartet appeared on National Public Radio on the weekend of 9-11 this year. After performing several pieces they were interviewed by Terry Gross, on Fresh Air, who exclaimed, “I just think you are great!” They responded that one of their goals is to visit schools and help motivate children to do their best. They will be doing just that, as they will be visiting the Ed Fenn Elementary school in Gorham as well as Berlin High School on Thursday, October 6, during class time. Stationed at Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., the four musicians

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams
By Holiday Mathis once you dedicate your time and attention to the project. The essence of order is time management. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Small problems are temporary. However, they still must be addressed. They won’t go away on their own. If left to do their own devices, they will grow strong, blossom and propagate. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Foolishness and creativity are fine bedfellows. Knowing this, you can take part in a creative process without the fear of appearing foolish, since it’s pretty much a given that will happen. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are, to a greater extent than usual, socially driven. Knowing that your friends are watching you, you’ll want to achieve higher and more interesting goals. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Winners take responsibility for the wins and the losses. That is because if you don’t take responsibility for the loss, you’ll never learn enough to get to the win. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You care about appearances and will keep them up even when doing so comes at a hefty cost to you. Later, you’ll be glad you made the effort. Acting as though everything is going well might actually make it so. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 20). Your strength comes from beyond. Relationships feed your soul through the next 10 weeks. You throw out the scorecard and enjoy seamless give and take. November brings an ideal working dynamic. You’ll partner with a wonderful contributor in December. January and July are windfall months. Aquarius and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 45, 3, 22 and 29.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know immediately when you’re clicking with someone. You can tell because you’ve experienced excellent rapport so many times before and you recognize the signs. Be patient with one less socially experienced. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Whilst trying to make your way up a social or political ladder, you will stop and realize ... there is no ladder. No one is on top. Everyone is on an equal level. Therefore, “climbing” is as unnecessary as it is nonsensical. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Hindsight is unrealistic. Then again, it’s a more rounded perspective than the one you get when you’re actually in the situation. As you look back on what happened, strive for a balanced and unsentimental view. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Limited knowledge is not always imparted with limited words. If you’re not careful, you could get caught up in a conversation that seems to wind on forever, despite a lack of real content. Guard your time -- it’s precious. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You won’t be given all of the information you need to do a job well. You’ll have to fill in the blanks, or move past the gaps and come back to them later. If you can be patient with this process, the results will be brilliant. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Funny people are usually quite popular. You’ll find yourself in both categories today as you laugh and kid among friends. The best part is that you won’t even have to make an effort. Your natural reactions have humor in them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll make a clean sweep of a chronically cluttered part of your world. It’s easy

WHINY SISTER SHOULD TAKE HER AILMENTS TO A DOCTOR
DEAR ABBY: My sister “Dena” has a lot of health issues. She weighs more than 300 pounds, has bad knees, ankles and legs, liver trouble and bad nerves. I love her dearly. She’s not only my sister, but my best friend. I feel sorry for her, but I can’t take her constant complaining every single day. Sure, everyone has bad days, but Dena complains to anyone who will listen -- friends, family, everybody. She never asks how anyone else is doing. I beg her to make a doctor’s appointment. Most times, she doesn’t go and keeps complaining. I don’t want to hurt her feelings, but this has taken a toll on me. Abby, I have my own aches and pains to manage. How can I tell my sister -- in an endearing way -- to stop all her moaning and groaning? -- REACHED MY LIMIT IN HOUSTON DEAR REACHED YOUR LIMIT: Your sister may complain about her aches and pains because she has nothing else to think about. She is limited in her activities so her world has shrunk to nothing beyond herself. How sad for her. The next time she raises the subject, tell her the person who should be hearing her symptoms is her doctor because there’s nothing you can do about them. And follow up with, “Now, Honey, tell me something positive. We all have things to be thankful for.” DEAR ABBY: We have close friends who are like family. They have one child -- a son, “Justin,” who is in the Boy Scouts. He has wanted to quit for two years but his parents won’t let him. They have been doing his work on the badges all along. His dad is the scout leader. They volunteer us all the time on different projects, but we’re tired of it and have tried in a nice way to let them know.
What bothers me most is that Justin sits around playing video games while we’re stuck doing his work. Now, his parents have him going for his Eagle Scout project -- a large one requiring quite a bit of work -- and they have volunteered us again. My husband already works hard. It isn’t fair that he does all the work and Justin gets the credit. Without destroying this friendship, what do you suggest, Abby? -- FED UP DOWN SOUTH DEAR FED UP: If your friendship with this couple is based on being at their beck and call and doing their son’s projects for him, then you’re paying a high price for it. Justin should be earning his own merit badges, and your husband should be telling the scoutmaster that he has projects of his own that take precedence. It doesn’t have to be said harshly, just firmly. If your husband can’t muster the courage, then face it -- you’ll both be in the Boy Scouts until Justin has “flown” as an Eagle. DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old female. I’m working on a degree, have a job, but have never had a serious boyfriend. I don’t have a problem socializing with men, but I’m interested in them only until they ask me out. I’ll go on a date or two, then I’ll be done with them. It doesn’t matter if they’re sweethearts or bad boys. It seems I like only what I can’t have. Is there something wrong with me, or will it be different when I meet “the one”? -- ALWAYS SINGLE IN OHIO DEAR ALWAYS SINGLE: It appears you like the chase more than the reward. While it may be different when you meet “the one,” recognize that you have established a pattern. There is more to a relationship with a man than getting his attention. You also have to NURTURE it.
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

BERLIN — Coos County Family Health Services will have a booth featuring information about Telemental Health at the second North Country Veterans Conference, a day-long event to be held at the Armory in Berlin September 30, 2011. Tele-mental Health opened a pilot program at Coos County Family Health Services last year that now has over a dozen participants. This program enables veterans to see a psychiatrist from the VA Hospital in White River Junction, VT, using the computer with the help of a webcam. This allows veterans to receive specialized care without having to drive long distances. Chester Annis, LCMHC, MLADC will host the table, along with Anita Bonna, the VA representative for the program. “Almost all service members will have reactions after returning from deployment,” Mr. Annis said. “Many veterans have to deal with posttraumatic stress disorder, trau-
matic brain injury, or even military sexual abuse, on top of practical issues such as housing problems and employment difficulties. This can lead to effects such as isolation, substance abuse, uncontrolled anger and depression. The combined stressors can be overwhelming without support.” Chester Annis More than 800 National Guard members will be returning this fall from the largest deployment in the history of the New Hampshire National Guard, and over 200 attendees are expected to attend the conference. The event is open free of charge to all veterans, service members and their families. It is also open to agencies and organizations who serve the North Country veteran community.

Additional forums scheduled for public to comment on development of care management plan CONCORD – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is announcing two additional forums for the public to comment on the state’s Care Management Plan. New Hampshire is moving from its current Medicaid system to a Managed Care Plan. The forums are an opportunity for the public to be involved in the design, development and implementation of the plan. “We are holding a series of regional forums in an effort to hear from as many people as possible,” said DHHS Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas. “We held our first two sessions, one in Keene and one in Nashua and we were very pleased with the turnout. It’s very helpful for us to hear from the public and we appreciate people making time in their schedules to be part of this process. Transitioning from our current system to a care management model is a significant undertaking, we believe that if we are thoughtful in our approach, and if we listen and engage our stakeholders that we can in fact help improve the health and well-being of those we serve.” DHHS has finalized details on the North Country/Upper Valley forum co-hosted by District One Executive Councilor Ray Burton and one in Concord. The North Country/Upper Valley forum will take place on Wednesday, September 21, from 9 to 11 a.m. in various communities. The Gregg Public Safety Academy at Granite State College will be the host site, with Lebanon, Gorham, and Berlin com-
munities available through videoconferencing. To ensure adequate seating please RSVP for this forum only to firstname.lastname@example.org. An additional forum has been added in Concord on Thursday, September 29, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the IBEW Hall. The public is welcome to attend any or all of the sessions. The following is the complete list of the remaining forums: September 21, 2011 in the North Country, 9 – 11 a.m. Gregg Public Safety Academy at Granite State College (Host site), 646 Union Street, Suite 600, Littleton, NH, RSVP to email@example.com.
