Donate to Team LERA’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s and help millions BY GAIL SCOTT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
GORHAM—When Lera Scott, 53, sang “Amazing Grace” at the Riverside Assembly in Gorham last year, she brought tears to eyes of all in the congregation. Scott was accompanied by her sister, Wendy Browning, who went to the front of the church with Scott and whispered two words at a time to her as she sang in the sweet voice her family remembers from always. Scott has early onset Alzheimer’s. She couldn’t remember the words without Browning’s help. But she remembered the melody and that she loves to sing. Now members of her family and friends plan to take part in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Portsmouth Saturday, Sept. 26. They hope to raise $1,000 in a cause that is close to their hearts, and Scott, who remembers that she loves to walk even if she can’t remember words, will be walking with them.
Anyone who would like to donate to the team walk, can call Scott’s sister Tammy Herman at 723-9717 or send a check to Herman, made out to the Alzheimer’s Association, at 625 Lincoln Ave., #2, Berlin. Please note Team LERA on the check in the notation space. The team also has a space on the Alzheimer’s Association web site, but they seem to be registered under Lera Scott, team leader, not under the name Team LERA. “When she learned about the walk, she got so excited,” said Herman, in a recent interview. “She still wants to make a difference. She loves to walk. She can’t walk by herself because she can’t get back. But she can participate. She is our team leader. She is going to walk and make a difference.” According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.4 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s— see LERA’S page 7

GRS Coop math SAT median slightly better than national BY GAIL SCOTT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
SHELBURNE—Among the myriad issues the Gorham/Randolph/Shelburne Cooperative School District board considered at their September meeting Tuesday were the district’s most recent median SAT scores, reported by Gorham Middle/High School Principal Keith Parent. Contrary to the national trend, Gorham High School students’ math median score in 2010 was 545, above the national score of 516 and the New Hampshire
median of 524, but below Gorham’s 2008 score of 583. Otherwise, Gorham’s scores were on a par with or worse than the national and New Hampshire medians. In reading, Gorham’s median was 501, the same as the national score but 19 points lower than the New Hampshire median. In writing, Gorham’s median was 489 to 492 in the nation and 510 in New Hampshire. These two Gorham scores were the worst in the past five years with the exception of 2007 when Gorham’s read see SAT page 6

Nickel sales revives soda fountain AVA, Mo. — (NY Times) — At Ava Drug, where pocket change still goes a long way. A nickel buys a scoop of ice cream, a soda or a cup of coffee. Each afternoon the place fills with the frenetic chatter of students arriving for their daily overdose of sugar and the clang of an antique cash register. There is, of course, a story behind how nickel ice cream returned to this hamlet of 3,000 in the Ozarks. That was the price when Ava Drug first opened in 1950 just off the town square, complete, like many pharmacies of the day, with a soda fountain. David Norman, whose father and grandfather started the business, eventually tore out the soda fountain, a money loser that he believed detracted from the core business. The pharmacy was a sleepier place afterward, and he sold the business in 1991. But almost a decade ago, Mr. Norman, more sentimental with the years, bought it back and set about re-creating, as faithfully as possible, the soda fountain that dominated the memories of his youth. The nickel prices were introduced as a short-term gimmick to draw traffic. But they filled the place with energy and gave customers a reason to ignore the WalMart that had eroded other local businesses, so the discount remained.
Ice cream is exquisite.” —Voltaire

Fed moves on long-term interest rates to spur growth
WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The Federal Reserve announced a new plan Wednesday to stimulate growth by purchasing $400 billion in long-term Treasury securities with proceeds from the sale of short-term government debt, defying Republican demands to refrain from new actions. In extending its campaign of novel efforts to shake the economy from its torpor, the Fed said that it was responding to evidence that there was a clear need for help. “Growth remains slow. Recent indicators
point to continuing weakness in overall labor market conditions and the unemployment rate remains elevated,” the Fed said in a statement that listed its reasons for worry about the anemic condition of the American economy. “Household spending has been increasing at only a modest pace in recent months.” The central bank said in a statement that the program was aimed at reducing the cost of borrowing for businesses and consumers, including the cost of mortgage loans. It hopes that the lower rates will
encourage companies to build new factories and hire more workers, and consumers to start spending again on homes and cars and clothes and vacations. Specifically, the Fed said that by June 2012 it would sell $400 billion in Treasury securities with remaining maturities of less than three years and purchase roughly the same amount of securities with maturities longer than six years. It said the result would move the average maturity of the bonds it holds to about 100 months from 75 months.
Obama, at U.N., explains reasons for Young adults make gains in opposing Palestinian statehood bid health insurance coverage UNITED NATIONS (NY Times) — President Obama declared his opposition to the Palestinian Authority’s bid for statehood through the Security Council on Wednesday, throwing the weight of the United States directly in the path of the Arab democracy movement even as he hailed what he called the democratic aspirations that have taken hold throughout the Middle East and North Africa. “Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the U.N.,” Obama said, in an address before world leaders at the Gen-
eral Assembly. “If it were that easy, it would have been accomplished by now.” Instead, Obama said, the international community should continue to push Israelis and Palestinians toward talks on the four intractable “final status” issues that have vexed peace negotiations since 1979: the borders of a Palestinian state, security for Israel, the status of Palestinian refugees who left or were forced to leave their homes in Israel, and the fate of Jerusalem, which both sides claim for their capital.
(NY Times) — Young adults, long the group most likely to be uninsured, are gaining health coverage faster than expected since the 2010 health law began allowing parents to cover them as dependents on family policies. Three new surveys, including two released on Wednesday, show that adults under 26 made significant and unique gains in insurance coverage in 2010 and the first half of 2011. One of them, by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, estimates that in the first quarter of 2011 there were 900,000 fewer uninsured adults in the 19-to-25 age bracket than in 2010. This was despite deep hardship imposed by the recession, which has left young adults unemployed at nearly double the rate of older Americans, with incomes sliding far faster than the national average. Until that measure took effect one year ago this week, children typically had to roll off their parents’ family policies at 18 or 21 or when they left college.

Bypass plans are fading into the distance, but state is holding onto the land for now THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 22, 2011— Page 3
BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Route 16 bypass project is inching closer to the cutting room floor, but the state has no plans to sell off the millions of dollars of land it purchased to create a corridor for the project. The project has been pushed back to at least 2022. The $22 million in land and buildings the state bought, meanwhile, is going to stay in state hands, even though the project is looking less and less likely. “If they’re not going to build it,” Conway selectboard chair David Weathers said, “let’s get [the land] back on the tax rolls.” “I don’t think we’ve reached that point yet,” N.H. Department of Transportation spokesman Bill Boynton said. The project has been dropped from the state’s next proposed 10-year transportation plan, meaning the state doesn’t plan to start on it for at
least a decade, if not longer. “It’s really a question of not having the funding right now,” Boynton said. “Right now a new part of the highway system is not in the plan.” That message was reiterated by state officials earlier this week when they came to Conway for a public hearing. The DOT is facing major budget challenges — state money for major projects has evaporated, and the federal government has cut funding by a third. The state has always had to prioritize projects, DOT director of project development Bill Cass said, but this time is different. “We have to prioritize within our priorities.” The new 10-year plan has the department concentrating on existing infrastructure maintenance, primarily major roads and bridges, while letting everything else go. “There are basically no new projects in this plan,” executive councilor Ray Burton said. Even the secondary state roads will be ignored. These cuts are hitting everyone,
Cass said. Even the I-93 expansion is coming to a halt. In Conway that means the southern portion of the Route 16 bypass, previously slated to begin in 2015, has been relegated to a list titled “Deferred Beyond Ten Year Plan.” The southern portion would bypass Conway Village. “We just don’t feel we have the wherewithal to continue these,” Cass said. There is no mention of the central and northern sections of the bypass, which weren’t in the last 10-year plan either. Those sections would bypass North Conway Village and the commercial strip. Pushing the project beyond 2022 means the permit with the Army Corps of Engineers will expire. The state can get an extension, which would be the second one for the bypass. The delays have reinforced the impression among local officials that the bypass will never get built, which at least at Conway town hall, no one is decrying.
“Do we have a traffic problem in Conway Village? I don’t think so,” Conway town engineer Paul Degliangeli said. “The traffic problem in Conway Village is largely during tourist season and on holiday weekends. Is there a traffic problem in Conway Village right now? No.” The state can’t afford to take care of its own roads, he said, much less build new ones. “How do you justify a new corridor for an intermittent localized problem.” The state, meanwhile, might consider selling some property it purchased for the project, just not any of the critical sections. “The question about land is a valid one,” Boynton said. DOT bought enough land to have a buffer around the project, he said, and now the state might consider liquidating that land. But they won’t sell the rest of the land off until the project is officially abandoned, he said. How does the state decide to abandon a project? “On a case by case basis.”

Bickford Place 1917
Once upon a Berlin Time
The First Farmer’s Market
Hello fellow Berlinites. As I write this story, the 2011 farmer’s market in Berlin was coming to and end. The market which started in July and ended on September 15 seemed to have had a second successful year. Each Thursday during this time, the market was run on Mechanic Street from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. Was there ever a farmer’s market in Berlin before? If so, when did it first take place in the “Paper City”? Here is the story. During the spring of 1917, the North Country Development Bureau of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce began its active cooperation with the farmers by speaking at grange meetings in the surrounding towns and telling them of their new idea about selling their products to the public. At the end of July 1917, this same committee again visited some of the farmers for the purpose of now getting together to sell their produce. Most of the outlying farmers agreed that a “Public or Farmer’s Market” should be established in this Northern New Hampshire city for the benefit of all involved. They held meetings in Shelburne, Milan and West Milan, as the committee for a public market wanted to make sure that growers from both ends of the local valley were invited and understood the rules and regulations for operating this event. Several public spirited citizens offered desirably located land to operate this market. If the public market was established, it would undoubtedly be held on Wednesday and Saturday mornings of each week. This would be the time that the housewives of Berlin could select fresh produce that would be displayed in farmer’s wagons. So, everything was in place to open the first farmer’s market in Berlin on Friday Morning August 31, 1917. The area chosen would be between Main and Pleasant Streets on a small street between Whitcomb’s Jewelry and the Berlin Savings Bank and Trust Company. That area now (2011) is known as “Bickford Place” and is a block above today’s market. Farmers would come from Crystal, Milan, West Milan, Shelburne and the outlying areas of Berlin, with fresh vegetables and fruits to sell directly from their wagons to Berlin’s citizens. The original days were changed to Tuesdays and Fridays and the established times for these markets would be from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. After 10:30 a.m., the market
would be closed to the public and opened up to wholesale dealers only. Growers in the area welcomed this new market, for they believed that it would eliminate peddling, which they always thought was an unsatisfactory and uneconomic method of distribution. It would also shorten the period which was usually required for a farmer to sell his produce and tend to increase production and decrease waste in the upper Androscoggin valley. The first farmer’s market that opened on that last day of August 1917 was thoroughly successful, as its most ardent advocates and promoters had hoped and anticipated. The space that was being allotted to the vendors was occupied at an early hour, with the first arrival and vendor being a man named Oscar Twitchell, who was there at 7 a.m. Produce offered for sale was all of high quality and displayed in a very tasteful manner. There was every form of product of the farm and garden in abundance and vehicles of every description from pushcarts to automobiles. Customers also showed up early on this Friday morning, but no sales were made until the hour that had been agreed upon by all the vendors there. Patrolman Couture, who was on duty at the first farmer’s market, estimated the number of customers when selling was at its peak to be about one thousand. The space was certainly crowded, with a busy throng of people filling their baskets with vegetables, fruit, eggs, chicken and other materials for the family dinner. In a very short time, the entire supply of products was exhausted and the area resumed its usual quiet aspect, completing the first day of Berlin’s open air farmer’s market. I wonder what happened with the wholesale dealers during after market hours. The pessimists, who didn’t believe the farmers would bring any produce or if they did, the people wouldn’t buy it, were stunned at the outcome. On the second day things were even busier. More than twenty farmers drove in with teams and automobiles on Tuesday morning September 4, 1917, to place their produce on sale at this so called “public market”.

Coaches have a lengthy list of responsibilities, from being sure that they are specialists “skilled in the talents of his/her sport” and “planning, developing, coordinating, evaluating, and continually improving their athletic program throughout all levels of the Gorham, Randolph, Shelburne Cooperative School District” to being “directly responsible for their own professional development and for the development of staff, for attending appropriate state and professional meetings and for keeping abreast of current trends and developments in their sport, from making sure their “student/athletes have a thorough physical examination, conducted by a medical doctor each calendar year” to showing exemplary sportsmanlike conduct and supervising all practices; from keeping open lines of communication among staff and with the Athletic Director, to maintaining the lines of public relations information via the Athletic Director and local newspapers, attending area meetings and maintaining positive relationships with “fellow peers, administration, opponent schools, officials, etc.” The proposed rules were approved by the board with one edit to change the wording slightly to rule that the coaches shall communicate with the local press with “results and summaries of all contests and meets.” Generally, all went well with the opening of the schools this fall, noted School Administrative Unit 20 Director Paul Bousquet. Coming year budget conferences begin immediately, he said, and he hoped that no more staff would have to be cut. “The Administration will begin budget discussions tomorrow,” he wrote. “I feel that cuts made for this school year were severe and had an effect on our programs and services for students. . . . we will still face a tough budget year for 2012-2013.” He noted that oil prices are locked in for the 2011-2012 school heating season at $3.2281.
median was 496 and write was 483. From the testing world, Ed Fenn’s Principal Karen Cloutier reported that the school made “Adequate Yearly Progress” last year and thus, has only to repeat the performance this year to be removed from the rolls of “schools in need of improvement” under the No Child Left Behind designation. In her packet of information for school board members, she included the lengthy description of “strategies” the school is putting into practice to accomplish that end. Total enrollment at Ed Fenn is now 193. In his report, GRS Cooperative Maintenance and Transportation Director David Goyette noted that the Ed Fenn School was used for to help “about a dozen or so people during Hurricane Irene. Red Cross set up cots and provisions for folks who needed to be temporarily relocated,” he wrote in his report. Goyette also said he had inspected the work being done on Randolph Hill Road and concluded that the best school vehicle to use on the road would be the 006 bus since the driver would have a good field of vision, needed on the road which is half blocked during all business days as workers address the road’s problems. Elsewhere in his report, Parent noted that 20 Gorham students were attending Berlin’s vocational program. “Auto Mechanics and Welding are the two most popular programs,” he said. Parent said that Gorham will have an accreditation visit from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges in the fall, 2013. Dan Gorham and Lucy Evans will be co-chairs of the schools selfstudy before this visit. Parent also introduced the documents with coaches’ job description and rules for coaches’ conduct at athletic events, plus rules for the behavior of fans attending high school events. Fans will be expected to behave themselves: “It is important to refrain from making disparaging remarks to opponents, officials, coaches, or spectators in any aspect of school athletics. Every person is expected to exemplify proper self-control at all times and accept adverse decisions without public display of emotion or dissatisfaction. It is also important to treat opposing team members and officials respectfully and encourage behavior, which will create positive relationships between schools,” according to the proposed rules. “Any individuals who display inappropriate behavior at athletic events,” the rules continue, “will be asked to leave the premises immediately.

one in eight of Americans aged 65 and over. Of the 5.4 million, 200,000 have early onset, like Scott’s. “The funds raised on the walk will go to help find a cure and to support the Alzheimer programs,” said Herman. As an example of one of the many, many ways the Alzheimer Association helps, Herman told of a late night when Scott had a frightening hallucination. “She had fallen asleep with the TV on. She woke up and there was a movie on where someone got attacked. She thought it was really happening and thought it was happening to me. She was screaming, ‘Are you bit? Are you bit?’ and she was frantic. I told her, ‘I’m ok, I’m ok.’ and I finally got her calmed down. Then I snuck in a call to my sister Vickie. She called the Alzheimer’s hotline and they were able to give us some advice and encouragement and explain what was happening and what to do. I can’t tell you what a relief it is to know you have that support, no matter what time of day it is. They do so much,” said Herman. It has come as a shock to the large family that their Lera has Alzheimer’s. There were eight children in the family, said Herman. Those that live in the vicinity are all pitching in to help, so that Scott won’t have to go to a nursing home, if they can possibly continue to care for her. As far as they know, there is no early onset Alzheimer’s in the family, although the early onset condition is believed to be genetic. They are now beginning to suspect that perhaps their mother had the condition, however. “She passed away in a nursing home in her 60s,” Herman remembered. “She would get confused and forget things. She used to drive and in one month’s time she had three accidents that were her fault and she didn’t know what had happened. When she was in the Coos County Nursing home, I would have to go down every night to help her figure out how to use the phone. They (the staff) attributed it to her need to be resuscitated and losing oxygen to her brain. She had had a heart attack and had to be resuscitated. So they (the doctors) just said it was common when someone loses oxygen to the brain. But now, with hindsight, we wonder. But there’s no way to prove it.” Apparently when Scott’s troubles began, she was living in Florida with her husband where she had her own commercial cleaning business.
“She was struggling for a while. We didn’t know how much,” said Herman. “But when her son, Jamie, wrote her a letter, she wanted to write him back, but she couldn’t write. Her husband said, ‘You tell me what to write and you copy it,’ and she couldn’t do that. And there were other things; she was struggling at work; she was driving but found herself going down the road on the wrong side; she couldn’t put a sandwich together. “When she couldn’t write back to her son, she realized she needed to find out what was going on,” Herman continued. “That’s when they started testing. It’s a process of elimination. They test for other things. Only when they eliminate other things could they say it was early onset Alzheimer’s. And they don’t really know for sure until an autopsy is performed.” On August 21, 2009, Scott’s 52nd birthday, she was told she had early onset Alzheimer’s. “Nice birthday present,” remarked Herman. Her husband couldn’t take the diagnosis. The couple divorced. But Scott’s birth family and her three children— Heidi Drehoebl and Frankie and Jamie Cross—are sticking by her. The children all hope to be with her on the walk in Portsmouth. As soon as her sisters and brothers learned about her troubles, they brought her to Berlin and sister Vickie Rose moved up from Tennessee to help. “We took her right up and said, ‘You come up here and we’ll take care of you,’” said Herman. For a while Scott and Browning and Rose lived with Herman and her husband, Paul, but now she is living with their older brother, Steve Ward and his wife, Sandy, in Freedom. Browning is staying with them to help care for Scott. “She was always so outgoing and a hard worker,” remembered Herman. “She worked in banks in her teens. She was a bank teller. She worked in Realty. She had her own food concession business in Florida that was successful. And when she was diagnosed, she was working in the cleaning business. She was doing a really good job with that.” Mostly Herman remembers that she was a hard worker, but one with a beautiful singing voice. “There is so much I could say about her,” said Herman, “but when she was diagnosed, her biggest concern was …. she cried and prayed, ‘Jesus, please don’t let me become mean and hurt my family.’ That was her biggest concern.”

BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
BERLIN -- Berlin senior Jake Drouin scored off a corner kick in the second half to break a 1-1 tie, helping the Mountaineers to a hard fought 2-1 victory over Gorham during Homecoming weekend in Berlin. Both teams played a scoreless first half. The action was consistent with all of the previous Gaydo Cup confrontations between the two schools. Berlin’s Conner Jewett made it 1-0 Mounties with 5:03 gone in the second half. The goal began with an Ethan Dorval free kick. Jewett picked up a high bouncing ball and headed past Huskie keeper Tyler Sanschagrin on the right side eight yards out. The goal was Jewett’s second of the year. Gorham got the score even on a Hunter Lambertson goal at the

score. The goal was Lambertson’s eighth of the year. Drouin’s game winner came with 22:09 left to play. Dimitri Giannos’s corner kick started the play in motion. Drouin’s shot was a low drive to lower right corner to make the Mounties a winner on homecoming weekend. The goal was Drouin’s third this season. For the game, saves for Huskie Tyler Sanschagrin was seven, while Mountie Curtis Arsenault had nine blocks. For corner kicks Gorham had one and Berlin four. “Another hard fought Gaydo Cup game,” said Gorham coach Billy Goodrich. “Both teams played with a lot of passion and played a very entertaining game. I thought our team did a very good job with the 50 – 50 balls and defensively we were very solid. Tyler did a great job, not only with his technique, but also showed great composure for a sophomore. I think that although we lost the game, we can certainly take away a lot of positives which we can build on.” The Keith Parent Sportsmanship awards went to Pat Pike of Gorham and Jake Drouin of Berlin. BHS 0 2-2 GHS 0 1-1 Scoring: BHS- Drouin, Jewett, GHS- Lambertson, Saves: BHS Arsenault 6, GHS Sanschagrin 8.
BERLIN -- The Berlin boys and girls cross country teams got strong runs from their experienced runners, and went on to make it a team sweep, during their homecoming weekend. The Mountie boys were first scoring a team total of 20 points. Newfound was next at 61 points, Prospect Mountain third at 87, and White Mountain Regional finishing at 113 points. Other schools participated, however they did not have the five man minimum team to take part in the team competition. The race was won by Prospect Mountain’s Drew Tuttle in a time of 16:36. Berlin’s Nathaniel Stiles and Jake Halgren finished in second and third place in a time of 17:18. Mountie Shamus Wheeler (currently competing with a very painful foot

Spartan Jackie Klineschadt was the overall winner of the girls competition, with a time of 19:51.

The cross country teams head to Newfound Regional High School for a competition on Tuesday.

By Holiday Mathis you’ll see. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What you want to become good at, you will become good at. You have to apply yourself, though. That is normally not a problem for you, but today comes with extra-fascinating temptations. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your philosophy will lead you to other people who think along similar lines. It will be as though you are sending out a radio signal that only certain other receivers can hear. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There will be a choice. Should you be strong, or should you be weak? It will be important for you to take a dominant position regardless of whether you are actually feeling that way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Sometimes you wonder if the exciting days are all behind you. Well, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Your interesting past will lead to an even more interesting future. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You simply cannot make the sacrifices and compromises you were once willing to make. It would be unwise, inconvenient and possibly physically impossible. So make a new and improved plan. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 22). You claim your space and expand your territory this year. A partner will help you, working and negotiating on your behalf. Your bold move in October yields results. January brings the start of an exciting project that will shape your year. Loving words and fun getaways will be featured in the spring. Taurus and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 34, 20, 1 and 32.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It will feel as though you are getting reacquainted with the real you after being out of touch for a while. You never really abandoned yourself completely. It’s just that it’s getting much easier to reflect who you are on the inside. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will let loose and enjoy yourself. Your playfulness is so attractive to people of all ages. You’ll revel in the attention you receive from people of several different generations. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may stray outside your realm of expertise, but you’ll be amazed at what you can do with very little practice. It’s because you gravitate toward what matches your natural talents and abilities. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be inspired to make subtle changes in your physiology. You’ll use your body to great effect. With a stronger posture and a greater physical presence, you’ll command the kind of respect you deserve. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll learn quickly and apply what you discover right away. The problem is, if you don’t use this knowledge over and over, you’ll forget the steps. That’s why it will be important to take notes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll try something new that seems suspiciously like something you’ve tried a dozen times before. Alas, snake oil sold in different packaging is still snake oil. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).

READERS DIFFER ON CEMETERIES AS PLACES TO PRAY AND TO PLAY
DEAR ABBY: I am writing in response to the letter you printed from “Respectful in Ohio” (July 25). I am so glad you addressed the subject of proper etiquette in cemeteries. The cemetery where my family members are buried has become a playground for the neighbors in the area. When I visit, I see people walking their dogs on and off leashes even though they are aware of the “No Dogs Allowed” signs. Children are bicycling, rollerblading and skateboarding, along with joggers and walkers. I come to the cemetery to visit with my lost loved ones and tend to their graves. I find it disgusting and disturbing that these folks are using our sacred place for their personal pleasures. Abby, thank you so much for your wisdom on this matter. -- JEAN C. IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR JEAN: Thank you for agreeing with me. However, some readers felt differently, believing that cemeteries are for the living as well as the dead. My newspaper readers comment: DEAR ABBY: You should know that there is a trend where groups of dog walkers are taking over the care of deteriorating cemeteries. In return for cleaning up, restoring and maintaining graveyards, dog walkers are given permission to walk and run their dogs there. Some readers may find this practice disrespectful, but it has resulted in many cemeteries being restored to the beauty and dignity its occupants deserve. -- CARLA IN VIRGINIA DEAR ABBY: When I read the letter from “Respectful,” it took me back a few years. As I was mowing in the town cemetery, I went around a gravestone into some tall grass and my mower stalled. When I turned it over to see what I had hit, I found a pair of pantyhose wrapped around the blade of the mower. Apparently, cemeteries are sometimes used as a
lover’s lane. I agree with you about practicing good behavior in places like these. But I’ll always laugh recalling what happened to me. I wonder if the lady who forgot her hose that night caught a cold. -- GROUNDSKEEPER DEAR ABBY: I have to disagree with you and “Resentful.” One needs to have a historical perspective about cemeteries and their place in our culture. Prior to the advent of public parks in the late 19th century, the only open, park-like setting in most communities was the local cemetery. People would stroll the lawns, picnic and socialize there. Today, some cemeteries even conduct historical and nature tours. While I don’t condone rowdy behavior, it’s wrong to think they are simply for the dead and mourning. Many families of our fallen soldiers go to Arlington Cemetery to picnic and visit their loved ones. Cemeteries fall into disrepair when they are not active and filled with living hikers, bikers, bird watchers, etc. Let’s encourage people to visit their local cemetery. The alternative is to allow them to go to seed and disappear from our landscape. -- PATRICK H., OHIO DEAR ABBY: Several years ago in a nearby church cemetery, a young couple and their 4-year-old were putting flowers on a relative’s grave. The child got a bit antsy and climbed on a headstone. The stone was loose and tipped over onto the child and killed him. No one should let children play in a cemetery. -- JAN IN SARTELL, MINN. DEAR ABBY: I want children to play on my grave. What could be better than spending eternity listening to the laughter of children? As for dogs, unless you are going to diaper all the pigeons, dogs are the least of my worries! -- ALANSON IN NEW JERSEY

Gorham girls fall to Groveton 2-1, defeat Patriots 1-0 GROVETON/BETHLEHEM -- GROVETON 2 GORHAM 1 The Groveton girl’s soccer team took advantage of two of their corner kicks, scoring a pair of goals and defeating the Lady Huskies 2-1 in a girl’s Division IV soccer game in Groveton recently. At 15:31 of the first half, Hall shot the ball off of a corner and deflected off the hands of Huskie keeper Brook Nadeau for a 1-0 lead. The Huskies looked to make a game of it by tying things up just into the second half. Gorham sniper Lily Keenan took a Jess Stewart feed and beat a couple of Groveton defenders and shot to the far side beating Eagle goal keeper Shauna Randall to make it a 1-1 game. The goal was Keenan’s fifth on the Fall. At the twenty fifth minute of the second half, the Eagles got the game winner. Hall began the play on a corner kick. The Huskies failed to clear the ball in front of the Gorham goal. The ball found the foot of Wheelock and she netted her shot for the 2-1 Eagle victory. For the game, Groveton held a four to three advantage in corners. Gorham’s Nadeau had five saves while Groveton’s Randall had six saves. Eagles 1 1-2
Huskies 0 1-1 Scoring: Eagles- Wheelock, Hall, Huskies- Keenan. GORHAM 1 PROFILE 0 Gorham’s Lily Keenan scored the game’s only goal with one minute to play, leading the Lady Huskies to a 1-0 victory over Profile Thursday. “We played good ball possession soccer,” said Huskie mentor Jeff Stewart. “We had at least 10-12 shots that just missed and one that hit the cross bar.” The Gorham girls peppered the Patriot net to the tune of 10 shots, and controlled play throughout. The Huskie goal keepers had to make four stops all together as Brook Nadeau and Cassandra Poulin split the duties between themselves. The Huskies held sway in the corner kicks by a margin of four to two. The game winner came in the 39th minute of the second half. Midfielder Jessica Stewart was the play maker, making a nice feed between a couple of players. Keenan was at top speed and made a couple of moves to free up her kicking leg. Keenan’s blast found the far side of the net for her sixth goal of the year and more importantly got her team the victory. GHS 0 1-1 PHS 0 0-0 Scoring: PHS- none, GHS- Keenan.

“Even though a final of 4 – 0 indicates a dominate performance, I think the team played some very good soccer under tough rain conditions,” said Gorham coach Billy Goodrich. “We had a number of quality chances. Point blank attempt by Hunter and a great save by Greenlaw, a ball off the post my Michael, and a crossbar deflection off a Jon Chabot direct kick could have kept us right in the game. A good job from our bench as we were without Andrew Lemieux. Brian Veazey and Doug Blunden gave us some quality minutes.” The Huskies will take on Berlin this Saturday for Homecoming.

of a nice first save by the Huskies Tyler Sanschagrin. Patriot Cam Johnson’s drive deflected right to Kelley yards yards out, and he shot it to the lower right corner. Kelley scored his second of the game at 62:42. Kelly received a pass from the left corner from Nick Christopher. Kelly then snuck in behind the Gorham defenders one on one against Sanschagrin. Kelly shot the ball to the lower right for a 3-0 lead. Profile’s Johnson got the final goal 64:20. A scramble in front of the Huskie goal allowed Johnson to find the upper right corner for a final score of 4-0. For the game, Sanschagrin had eight saves and Profile’s Travis Greenlaw blocked 13 Huskie shots. The corner kicks were Gorham 5 and Profile 7.

in remote rescues or emergencies. The club needs a fiscal agent to apply since they are not a 501c3. A public hearing on this resolution will be held on Oct. 3. *The Council approved proposing a resolution carrying over a total of $2.7 million in capital improvement funding for projects that have not yet been completed. That figure includes bonds that have not been drawn on, segregated funds and general fund appropriations. Among the projects awaiting completion are Police building maintenance and a Police impound building, City Hall repairs, Public Works garage repair, Fire Department building maintenance, Library exterior repair, Hutchins Street realignment, and sidewalk replacement, as well as many others. A public hearing on this resolution will be held on Oct. 3. *Also the subject of an Oct. 3 public hearing, is a resolution to accept a combined donation of $10,000 for the downtown. Public Service of New Hampshire and the Berlin Main Street Program have each offered $5,000 toward the cost of the downtown economic and design strategy work currently underway by HE Bergeron Engineers.
tee that the cost would not increase more than seven percent and offering a five percent rebate, for a net increase of no more than two percent. Mayor Paul Grenier expressed reservations about the three year term, since Primex would be getting out of the health insurance business next year but labor contracts are valid through 2014. He didn’t want to see the city lose “the economy of scale,” he said, referring to the multi-policy discounts offered by insurers. McQueen allayed that concern, noting that there will still be a health insurance option under Primex, it will just be run by Albert C. Jones as a public trust. He assured the council that he will contact Primex to see if a two year contract could be negotiated. *The city council agreed to consider a resolution to act as fiscal agent for the White Mountain Ridge Runners as they seek a $20,000 grant through the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund for an emergency response vehicle. City Planner Pam Laflamme explained that the vehicle would be shared by the club, fire and and law enforcement to assist
