Council approves environmental study for Dummer Yard

DRED, Forest Service check in on Irene damage

BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

GORHAM — The Commissioner of the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) along with members of his staff and representatives from the US Forest Service and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen’s office gathered in Gorham on Wednesday to check in with local towns in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene. The towns of Shelburne, Randolph, Gorham and Berlin were all invited to take part in the session, which focused on the towns sharing their needs with the government officials, while the guests suggested the best contacts and strategies for ongoing issues. Gorham and the unincorporated places along Route 16 sustained much of the damage discussed during the session, and Gorham Emergency Management Coordinator Chad Miller illustrated the major damage caused by the Peabody River via slideshow. In it, he included photos of the nearly five-foot deep channel the river carved in White Birch Lane, substantial damage to the Androscoggin Valley Country Club — a pump house and large stone wall were washed away while sand and silt were deposited on the course, a Route 16 residence that saw around 25 feet of their yard swept downstream exposing their well casing and leaving their deck hanging over the river, as well as damage to the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road and surrounding trails, and the Dolly Copp Bridge. Andy Slowick who attended the meeting on behalf of the country club said that they would need help to cover the $30-$40,000 worth of equipment that was lost and $40-$50,000 worth of work that needs to be done. He added that some engineering help would be appreciated as well. “We’re looking for some help,” Slowick said, while noting that local volunteers had already stepped up to do what they could in removing storm debris on the property. Slowick added that the bridge abutments on the Route 2 structure over the Peabody seemed to act as rudders steering the water onto the course and wondered if engineering services might be available to look at that issue. Bald took note, and directed Slowick to connect with DRED’s North Country representative Benoit Lamontagne to move forward. Bald credited White Mountain National Forest Supervisor Tom Wagner with the idea for joint meetings with towns to discuss the damage inflicted by the Aug. 28 storm. Noting that both agencies played key roles and made joint decisions leading up to the storm — like their calls to close both the state parks and national forests for the weekend — Bald said they were now looking to help towns and busi-

BERLIN — The city council approved paying an estimated $29,550 for the city’s share of a Phase II environmental site assessment of the Dummer Yard landfill. The state Department of Environmental Services is funding the remaining $90,978 of the $120,528 budget for the ESA which will be conducted by GZA GeoEnvironmental of Manchester. Housing Coordinator André Caron provided the council with an overview of the history of the city’s involvement with the property and described the Phase II project. The council met on Tuesday night because of the Labor Day holiday. Ownership of the 418-acre parcel is in limbo as a result of the bankruptcy of American Tissue, which was the prior owner. When Fraser Papers purchased the American Tissue pulp and paper mills, it specifically excluded the Dummer Yard property because of its history as an industrial landfill. Caron reminded the council that city declined to accept ownership of the property in 2006 when it first came up for tax deeding. Because the city is required to tax deed the entire parcel, it wanted a clearer picture of its environmental issues before taking on the responsibility. State law allows the city to conduct exploratory work before taking a property by tax deed.

Both Caron and City Manager Patrick MacQueen stressed the city is interested in owning the property because of the large amount of undeveloped land included. The four unlined but capped landfills on the property occupy about 105 acres, leaving over 300 acres that the city could use for future development. “As a housing coordinator, I think we need to do it,” Caron said in recommending the council approve the Phase II work. “This is the largest piece of undeveloped land we have left in the city.” he said. Caron reminded the council that the Berlin Industrial Development and Park Authority has been looking for additional land. MacQueen said the industrial potential of the site is great. He said the city, however, can not go forward until it knows the liabilities of the site. In 2006, a Phase I ESA was conducted on the site by Nobis Engineering at the request of the North Country Council, funded by a federal Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Assessment Grant. GZA GeoEnvironmental did an update of that study earlier this year based on additional documents DES uncovered as a result of the 2006 study. The Phase I work identified specific areas of environmental concern. Caron said the Phase II study will look at groundwater and subsurface conditions with test borings and well installations.

Plane crash wipes out hockey team

TUNOSHA, Russia (NY Times) — A Russian passenger airliner chartered by one of the country’s best-known hockey teams and carrying numerous veterans of the National Hockey League crashed during take-off near the city of Yaroslavl on Wednesday, killing all but 2 of the 45 people on board. Lokomotiv’s coach, Brad McCrimmon, a Canadian who played for 18 seasons in the N.H.L. between 1979 and 1997, died in the crash, along with Pavol Demitra, who played 16 seasons in the N.H.L. for the Los Angeles Kings and the Vancouver Canucks. Three members of the Czech national team, Jan Marek, Karel Rachunek and Josef Vasicek were also among the victims. Mr. Marek was a 2003 draft choice of the New York Rangers. The only survivors were a crew member and a player, the star forward Aleksander Galimov, who was rushed to a local hospital, a Russian aviation official told the Interfax news agency. The crash is likely to have a severe impact on Russian hockey. Lokomotiv is a three-time champion of the Continental Hockey League, the Russian equivalent of the N.H.L., with a status here similar to any of the top North American teams. It has also been at the forefront of an effort in recent years to rebuild Russian hockey.

Plan would keep small force in Iraq past deadline WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta is supporting a plan that would keep 3,000 to 4,000 American troops in Iraq after a deadline for their withdrawal at year’s end, but only to continue training security forces there, a senior military official said on Tuesday. The recommendation would break a longstanding pledge by President Obama to withdraw all American forces from Iraq

by the deadline. But it would still involve significantly fewer forces than proposals presented at the Pentagon in recent weeks by the senior American commander in Iraq, Gen. Lloyd J. Austin III, to keep as many as 14,000 to 18,000 troops there. The proposal for a smaller force — if approved by the White House and the Iraqi government, which is not yet certain — reflected the shifting political realities in both countries.

It also reflected the tension between Obama’s promise to bring all American forces home and the widely held view among commanders that Iraq is not yet able to provide for its own security. And it reflected the mounting pressures to reduce the costs of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, both wars that have become increasingly unpopular as the 10th anniversary of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, approaches.

Sacrifices, restrictions as central Deadly explosion strikes Texas town copes with drought courthouse in New Delhi

LLANO, Tex. (NY Times) — When the people who run this small town in Central Texas put up hand-painted signs reading “No watering” in bold red letters, they really mean it. Hundreds of lawns are dying in the 100-degree heat here, turning straw-colored and crunchy. The drought that has gripped much of Texas has forced Llano to adopt some of the toughest mandatory water restrictions in the state. Residents are prohibited from watering their lawns except for once a week early in the morning and late at night. The filling of swimming

pools, the washing of cars parked outside homes, the use of automatic or detachable sprinklers — all have been banned since June, by order of the City Council. Government has always had a hard time telling Texans how to live. But the ban on most types of outdoor watering has been embraced by people in Llano, where a kind of World War II-era rationing spirit has become a way of life. “I think all of us are making sacrifices,” said the city manager, Finley deGraffenried. “People are changing their ways, changing their habits.”

NEW DELHI (NY Times) — An explosion ripped through a reception area of an Indian courthouse on Wednesday morning, killing at least 10 people and wounding more than 60 others in a bombing that renewed concerns about India’s vulnerability to terrorism. It was the second bombing of the courthouse in less than four months. Witnesses described a chaotic scene at the Delhi High Court after the blast at 10:14 a.m., outside a reception area used by litigants, lawyers and visitors to enter the courthouse. The Indian home minister, Palaniappan Chidambaram, called the explosion a terrorist attack and noted that New Delhi was already in a high state of alert with Parliament in session. Mr. Chidambaram said Indian intelligence agencies had received information in July about a possible terrorist threat to the city, which had been turned over to the local police. He did not elaborate about the intelligence report and said investigators had not yet identified a suspect in Wednesday’s explosion.

Dog show canceled by flood damage VISIT BERLINDA ILYSUN.COM FOR THIS A ND OTHER GRE AT OFFERS

BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Tropical Storm Irene must not be an animal lover. The storm that flooded parts of Mount Washington Valley leaving dozens homeless almost two weeks ago has claimed another victim — the Carroll County Kennel Club. The club was forced to cancel its annual dog show, which was planned for this weekend in Hussey Field on River Road in North Conway, after town officials deemed the site not safe. It marks the first cancellation since the club began holding shows shortly after Word War II. Known as the Westminster of the Woods, the show had been expecting over 700 entries each day and the event is the largest fund-raiser of the year for the kennel club. Each of the exhibitors was notified by e-mail, at a cost of eight cents per e-mail, by the club Saturday afternoon. It stated the following: "Dear 2011 Exhibitor and Purebred Dog Fancier: "With sincere regret we announce that our 2011 All Breed show scheduled for September 10 and 11 has been cancelled by the AKC as a result of an 'Act of God.' Our first cancellation since CCKC began holding shows shortly after Word War II. "Those of you who have been to our show can well appreciate the beauty of Hussey Field. The field was left by our long-time vet, Dr. Eugene Hussey, to the town with the proviso that it be reserved for our club's shows each year. "For this our 27th year at the field, Hurricane Irene's deluge brought so much rain that the Saco River that bounds our site overflowed and completely flooded the field rendering it unusable because of silt, sand, logs and debris. The Saco River rose to levels not seen since the 19th century. "So we extend our sincere regrets to you for this cancella-

tion and our own sadness that a solid year's worth of planning is literally 'down the drain.' "Please mark your calendars now for Saturday and Sunday September 8 and 9, 2012. We'll be here welcoming you to stand for examination and as always in catalog order."

“There was really nothing we could do. Because of all of the water that flooded Hussey Field, the town just felt it wasn’t safe.” The e-mail was sent by Rachelle Porter, president; Jeanne Charest, show chair; Dorothy Lindblade assistant show chair; and members of the Carroll County Kennel Club. Porter said most of the exhibitors, who will not be refunded their $30 per entry fee, have been understanding of the predicament the club went through. Officers even explored moving the site to Fryeburg Fairgrounds, Sandwich and Haverhill, but were simply too up against the clock from a timing standpoint. "There was really nothing we could do," Porter said. "Because of all of the water that flooded Hussey Field, the town just felt it wasn't safe. (Selectmen) wanted to meet with us (Tuesday at 3 p.m.), that was the earliest they could meet given everything else on their plate. We called AKC (the American Kennel Club) and told them the field was under water and there was so much debris and also the town couldn't meet with us until this week. AKC canceled the show and ruled that it was because of an act of God. "If we had gone somewhere else, we would have had to hire people because our volunteers probably wouldn't have made it," she continued. "We would have been in too much of a time crunch to get a new plan into AKC and get it approved."

Lindblade met with town recreation director John Eastman last Thursday, and at the time the ground was still too soft to allow vehicles onto Hussey Field. "The town said RVs weren't going to be allowed on the site," Porter said. "Dorothy Seybold very nicely offered to host them at Settlers' Green, but the town said they didn't have a permit to do that. We looked at John Fuller School and they were willing, but also didn't have a town permit." Carroll County Kennel Club could be out thousands of dollars for judges' plane tickets and planned lodgings. The club had also reserved a number of tents for the weekend and paid half of its deposit in advance. "We had a contract with MB-F (which handles show entries and creates show catalogs)," Porter said. "We might have to pay the whole thing without having a show. We had dumpsters and port-a-potties lined up and ready to be delivered. "I know people are disappointed, we all are," she said, "but with everything going on I think AKC and the town made the right decision. Most of the people are like, 'It's such a shame, we look forward to showing at that show and coming to the mountains.'" Carroll County Kennel Club was founded in the 1940s by the late local veterinarian Eugene Hussey, who allowed the event to be held each year on his property. Hussey passed away in 2005. "Thanks to Doc, we are where we are today," Lindblade said. "He was very good to this club; he was our biggest supporter." There are currently 15 members of the Carroll County Kennel Club, and they hold meetings once a month at Red Jacket in North Conway. "We meet the third Monday of every month (next meeting is Sept. 19) at the Red Jacket at 7:30 p.m.," Lindblade said. "We try to have a program or film, or someone will talk about their breed."

Warm hearts lessened evacuation stress To the editor: Thank God for small New England towns and big warm heared New Englanders! I had to evacuate my house in Gorham Sunday afternoon. This was a first time experience for me. Needless to say, I was scared and frantic. I was told to go to Ed Fenn school and that I could take my pets with me. When I arrived I was greeted by Lisa who gave me a big hug and assured me everything would be alright. She was so right. From Lisa to Dereck and his young trainees to the “flower man” and so many other people whose names I just can’t

remember (Heidi, Chad) so many others! Myself and the other people who sought shelter there were so well taken care of, give a cot, a warm blanket, food and just plain caring. But most important to me “thank you” for allowing me to bring my pets, Chloe and Moose. I never could have left them, they mean the world to me, and I was less alone on Sunday night thanks to them! So thank you all again for your kindness and caring. God bless you all! Sincerely Terri, Chloe, (Corgi) and Moose (cat) Cavallo Gorham

Once upon a Berlin Time

1966 VI

Hello fellow Berlinites. By September of 1966, a new restaurant was established in Berlin at 350 Glen Avenue. It was actually a new building for Norm Roy’s business that he called Norm’s Family Drive-In. This establishment had an open house for its new facility on August 25, 26, 27, and 28 of 1966, just about forty-five years ago. It was later called “Le Rendezvous de Roi” and many of us remember the great food that was once served at this family establishment. I believe that the restaurant that stood here before Norm’s Drive-In was called “Coney Island” and also served great food. Today (2011) that same complex is called Glen Avenue Plaza and houses a few small businesses. One hundred and four students from 37 communities in three states began classes on Monday, September 19, 1966 at the brand new Vocational Institute on Riverside Drive here in Berlin. Actually, the school was not quite finished when students arrived for class; with some work having to be done on the inside. Also, some of the equipment that was supposed to be there had been delayed. Director Edward Oleson said that these delays did not interrupt the education process and by the time laboratories started everything would be in order. There were 35 students from Berlin and 6 students from Gorham. Others came from all over the state to include Maine and Vermont. As I pen these lines, this same school has started its forty-fifth year of education. Things have certainly changed for this institution since the mid 1960’s. A great article about the art works of 24 year-old Jean Bartoli made the local news in late September of 1966. Bartoli, who has one of his masterpieces on display in a small park near the end of Exchange Street and Glen Avenue, got his start at Berlin High School. Bartoli’s sculpture Jean made his sculptures out of Carrara, a rare marble that comes from Italy. It was in this country that Bartoli spent a year practicing his talents near the spot from which this famous rock for sculptors came. After high school, Mr. Bartoli went on to the Philadelphia Museum College of Art to learn his talents. Besides working on sculptures, Jean was also an accomplished painter and photographer. It is my understanding that Bartoli taught at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. and besides having a place in Berlin, also has a place in Italy. If I am wrong I am sure that I will be corrected. I do not know though, if he still works at his passion of art. Railroad buffs were in their glory on Sunday October 2, 1966, when old No. 6218 puffed into town. This steam locomotive was hauling an excursion train from Portland,

Norm’s Drive-In

Maine to Island Pond, Vermont and made a short stop in Berlin for water. The ninety-four foot steam engine was on its last run over the Grand Trunk tracks and hundreds of people crowded the old yards in Gorham and Berlin to see it. In Gorham, No. 6218 obliged her photography fans by making a movie run-by. She stopped at the station to let the shutter bugs off, then backed down a half mile, poured on the coal and roared back up the tracks at full throttle. While in Berlin, this old engine made water stops, as it replenished the 11,600 gallon tank from a hydrant on Mt. Forist Street. When this happened, local citizens swarmed all over her. They climbed into the cab, hoisted themselves atop the tender and along the boiler. A generation before this, nobody would have stopped to even take a second look, but No. 6218, a train that young kids used to call the “choo-choo train”, was a symbol of days gone by, the days of steam. No. 6218 was one of the biggest steamers to ever cover the tracks between Montreal and Portland. For you railroad buffs, it stood sixteen and one half feet tall and weighed 300 tons. The driving wheels were six feet in diameter; the cylinders had a 30 inch stroke and the tender held 18 tons of coal. I would have to say that thousands of people would love to make that same excursion today and at every stop along the way, thousands more would be there to see and video this great piece of North Country history. During the latter part of October, 1966, fires made the news in Berlin. On October 6, 1966, Mr. Napoleon E. Dumais 55, died in a fire at his home on 478 First Avenue. The fire had gone undetected and burned itself out. Mr. Dumais was discovered by his brother George Dumais, who lived at 441 First Avenue. George had become concerned after not hearing from or seeing his brother for several days. Police said that there was evidence Dumais had been smoking in bed. The fire had spread throughout his bedroom, but died out without it being noticed by any neighbors or people passing by. Doctor L. P. Beaudoin, the Coos County Medical Referee, said that death was accidental and due to smoke inhalation. Mr. Dumais was an employee of the Public Works Department. Believe it or not, our recreation center here in Berlin had a major fire in October of 1966, causing much damage. It started out as a minor blaze, but ended up almost being a catastrophe. see BERLIN page 5


Council rejects contract with water works employees BY BARBARA TETREAULT THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN — The city council Tuesday rejected a proposed two year contract between the water commission and Local 1444, representing the seven water works employees. After meeting in non-public session with Water Superintendent Roland Viens and Water Commissioner Lucien Langlois for over 30 minutes, the council voted in public session not to ratify the cost items in the proposed contract. Councilor Diana Nelson was the sole vote in favor of the contract. The contract would have given the water works employees a ten cent an hour pay increase (or .5 percent) in the current fiscal year, retroactive to August 1. In the second year, the GOLF from page 4

Lachance, Pastor Shane Riff, Dan Law, and Dennis Lauze. Olympians depend on your continued commitment to keep this program going. This year we also received a large supply of golf balls from Mr. Jim Warren and clubs and golf bags from Mr. and Mrs. Tony Cellupica. We are well equipped for a few years thanks to these generous contributions. Androscoggin River Special Olympics is always looking to recruit new volunteers. Next up is Bowling. If you would like a fulfilling and fun-filled opportunity to give back to the community, do not hesitate to call me at 752-7215 for information on how

employees would have received a two percent pay increase. The contract also called for the employees to change health insurance coverage to Harvard Pilgrim HMO from their current Point of Service plan. They would have continued picking up 20 percent of the cost of their health insurance premiums. The change in health insurance would more than have offset the increase in pay and retirement costs. Overall, the city would have saved $4,792 in the first year of the contract. In his motion, Councilor Tom McCue noted the state Supreme Court has ruled the council must approve the cost items for all labor contracts. The council met on Tuesday because of the Labor Day holiday. you can become involved with New Hampshire Special Olympics. There are many aspects to this organization and no special skill is required - just a willingness to share your time for the benefit of the area special needs citizens. In memory of founder Eunice Kennedy-Shriver there is no better (and fun) way to get involved with Special Olympics and experience the joy of contributing to such a worthwhile cause. Again, thank you all for another great season! Cordially, Terry Letarte, Golf Coordinator Androscoggin River Special Olympics

BERLIN from page 4

A false ceiling and a double roof turned this fire from a comparatively routine one into a major blaze. Fire Chief Lucien Lamontagne said the conflagration worked its way between two roof levels which were about six inches apart and between the roof and a false ceiling. This is what caused the major problem in the fight to extinguish this fire. Firemen poured 2,500 gallons of water per minute into the building, but the only way to get the fire up high was to cut through the ceiling and then through one section of the roof. The fire had started in a trash can in the basement and worked its way up through a section of the gymnasium floor. It then spread through the rest of the building. Although the basement was unscathed, the offices, the balcony and the roof were a disaster. The gymnasium floor was burned in one section, but the amount of water damage necessitated that that whole floor be replaced.

the fury of the blaze. This building served as a state armory for the National Guard until the mid 1950’s, when a new armory was built. The city purchased it from the state for $6,000 in March of 1958 and it became the recreation center in April of the same year. At the time of the fire, police headquarters were still in the old Cole School on Mason Street. I will finish my history of Berlin in 1966 with my next story.

Roland “Husky” Poirier

BERLIN — Normand B. “Husky” Poirier of Countryside Avenue, Berlin, passed away Tuesday morning September 6, 2011 at his home. He was 82. Born on February 1, 1929 in Berlin, he was the son of Joseph and Yvonne (Gagnon) Poirier. A lifelong resident of Berlin, he was nicknamed “Husky” at a young age for his interest in training Husky Sled Dogs. Husky attended Guardian Angel School and from 1944-1948 attended Notre Dame High School in Berlin. He was a member of the first hockey team at Notre Dame and they won the High School State Championship in 1947 and 1948. He was voted the Most Valuable Player of the 1948 Championship. Husky was named in the “Who’s Who” publication for High School Athletics for his abilities in Ice Hockey and Baseball for the year 1948. He was a member of the Berlin Maroons from 1948 to 1962. In 1954, the Maroons won the AHA New England Hockey Championships and the National AHAUS Hockey Tournament. On October 29, 1949, he married Priscilla I. Pepin of Berlin. Together they raised five children. He owned and operated Husky’s Construction in Berlin, working until three weeks ago. Due to Husky’s passion for the game of hockey and DAMAGE from page one

nesses get back on their feet by directing them to the proper agency or answering questions directly. Gorham Town Manager Robin Frost recapped that town’s major issues, which all stemmed from the Peabody and Moose Rivers and the threat they posed to property and potentially life. A key theme Gorham officials looked to impart to their guests was the potential for more damage brought on by lesser storm events now that both rivers had seen substantial bank erosion. Miller noted that should the Peabody rise three feet, the new channel created on White Birch Lane would see water. Repeat flooding was also on the minds of some, who asked that there be future planning done by the state to look at mitigation of flood potential along these waterways. Selectman Paul Robitaille pointed out that flooding in 1958 damaged the same areas as this storm. Planning Board chairman Mike Waddell asked Bald and Wagner to look at maintaining riverbed build up under bridges with a focus on maintaining the original bridge heights above the bed in an effort to sustain the engineered integrity of the bridges, which he said are nothing more than large culverts in the simplest sense. Director of Economic Development Chris Way noted that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been in the state and is look-

youth, he was instrumental in organizing the Youth Hockey Program in Berlin by forming and coaching teams at all levels of the youth hockey program from 1963 through 1972. In 1963, Husky organized and played in the Berlin City Hockey League. He also organized a travelling All-Star team that played in tournaments. He was instrumental in the cleanup and rebuilding of the Notre Dame Arena when the original building collapsed in 1969. Over the years, Husky received many awards for his efforts as a player, coach and builder of the sport of ice hockey in Berlin. In tribute to his lifelong passion, dedication, and devotion to the sport of Ice Hockey, he was inducted into the New Hampshire Legends of Hockey Hall of Fame on March 20, 2004. Husky was also very involved with his grandchildren and their sports. He would make every effort to attend their games at any distance. He also enjoyed being outdoors-hunting, fishing, trapping, and camping at Maidstone Lake in Vermont. Husky was a communicant of Guardian Angel Church now known as St. Anne Church of Good see HUSKY page 7

ing at granting assistance. The group has different thresholds for disbursing federal aid to municipalities, businesses and individuals, he said, but DRED would be working to connect businesses with alternate options like SBA loans if their business did not qualify for FEMA aid. “We don’t just take no for an answer,” Way said. Officials present said that the first step for any business or individual that sustained storm damage to their property or business is to call 211 and report it so that the claims can be tracked and compiled for possible aid. He also pointed business owners to Lamontagne, who has been meeting with businesses and can help them navigate red tape, or point them in the right directions through the DRED office for handling permitting and other hurdles. Way pointed out that while it may be some time before FEMA makes a determination on aid, devastation in neighboring counties could help business aid in Coos. If one county gets business assistance then adjacent counties —even across state borders — are also eligible. Director of Travel and Tourism Lori Harnois, said that in an effort to be proactive leading into the September to November tourist season — the state’s second largest tourist season — the state is actively reaching out to tour operators and advertising in normal markets with a public relations push to present positive images.

LANDFILL from page one

the EPA encourages communities to reclaim old industrial sites. Councilor Lucie Remillard asked where the city will get the funds for its share of the study. Caron said it will come out of his department’s demolition fund. He said it represents the cost of one demolition. Councilor Dori Decharme noted the scope of work contract from GZA states that actual charges may vary up or down based on the execution of work. She asked where the city would get the additional money if the costs go up. Caron said there are some things that could be cut out of the contract to keep the price within budget. Making a motion to approve the contract with GZA, Councilor Mike Rozek said he would like to see the study done so the city can go forward with the property. His motion passed unanimously. Development of the Dummer Yard site dates back to the late 1800s with the construction of the Success Pond Railroad, a logging railroad that traversed the central potion of the site. With the development of the Brown Company pulp mill, the site was used for bark removal, coal and lumber storage, disposal of mill processing waste, line ash, paper sludge, and general mill waste. A pipe finishing mill and a cement mill also existed on the site at one time. The site has not been used since 1995.

Poirier and his wife Tammy of Bedford; three daughters: Janet L. Chevarie and her husband Richard of Berlin, Louise C. Bugeau and her husband Paul of Lebanon, OH and Diane L.

Poirier and his wife Cecile of Berlin and Richard “Rupert” Poirier and his wife Priscilla of Berlin; and many nieces, nephew, cousins,

said the area of the site used for general mill waste is of particular concern because no one knows exactly what was deposited there. Other sites, such as the lime ash pile, the bark sludge pile, and the sludge landfill, had defined waste streams. Caron said there will be testing around the remaining service garage for heavy oils, petroleum products, and PCBs. While the garage is privately owned, he explained that the land beneath it is part of the overall Dummer Yard property. Caron said the study will attempt to define the waste areas more definitively. The Phase II work will get underway next week and should be completed in February. Based on the results of the Phase II study, the city would likely develop a master plan for the property if it decided to take ownership. Caron said the study may indicate the best approach is to leave the landfill portion of the property alone and subdivide the remaining land. He said the environmental assessments performed on the site will make it easier for the city to attract federal funding for any remediation or future site work. He said the federal Environmental Protection Agency likes to see that there has been extensive investigative work done before it commits to funding. At the same time,

Period re-enactors will take up residence at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road this weekend, as they set up a colonial encampment for the annual Muster in the Mountains.

Muster in the Mountains sets up camp this weekend

PINKHAM NOTCH — One of New Hampshire’s most dramatic and colorful time periods (17501850) will come to life on September 9-11, as the Autumn Muster in the Mountains returns to the base area of the Mt. Washington Auto Road on Route 16 in Pinkham Notch. This colonial encampment will recreate the historic gatherings where early settlers traded goods and services, often traveling great distances for the annual rendezvous. Groups representing Northeastern Indians, frontiersmen, militiamen, British soldiers, French Marines and mountain men will set up period tentage, tipis and wigwams. Artisans will offer handcrafted items ranging from leather goods and clothing to period beadwork, knives, guns and rare books. Planned activities include musket and cannon firing; tomahawk and knife throwing competitions; a mock battle; weaving; woodcarv-

ing; gunsmithing; coppersmithing; blacksmithing; period music; candle dipping; basketmaking; quillwork; period cooking; woodcraft; archery; 18th century games and more! Saturday will be competition day, with cannon fire, a shooting range and woods walk/mock hunt and Sunday at 1 p.m. will feature a reenacted battle. “This Muster in the Mountains is a spectacular opportunity to experience yet another time period in Mt. Washington’s history. Our 150th birthday celebrations this season have included events which have spanned the centuries and now we’re time traveling to the colonial era!” observed Howie Wemyss, general manager of the Mt. Washington Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center. For more information on the upcoming Muster in the Mountains call the Mt.

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are some things in your life that you haven’t thought to question until recently. Now you’re filled with questions, and you will find answers as you bring your quiet and luminous gaze to the moon. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be analyzing someone’s contributions and interactions with you. To you, it feels like the kindness this person shows is motivated by fundamentally selfish reasons, and you may very well be right. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Parenthood, friendship and romance are not normally classified as competitive events. However, today presents an interesting scenario. If it’s not a competition, you don’t know what is. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you consider to be trivial, someone else considers to be deeply profound and personal. You are aware of these differences in opinion and will tread carefully. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are even more resilient than usual and will shake off the troubles of yesterday and come bounding into brand-new troubles that are far more interesting, exciting and glamorous. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 8). This year sees you becoming a master of your time. You’ll make meaningful connections this fall, and many hours will be spent with a special loved one. October brings a happy development in the realm of health. A work cycle ends in December, and new exciting projects start in 2011. April and August are ideal for travel. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 14, 38, 11 and 27.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It will be easy for you to think of others. You’ll be treated with the respect you deserve, largely because you are so respectful of everyone with whom you have dealings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you look back on what you once thought was a huge problem, you can’t believe how complicated it seemed. Once a problem is solved, the solution seems so obvious. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t be too timid to ask for help. The more you involve others in your process the more cooperation you will receive. By asking for help, you will give others the opportunity to do something they will later be proud of. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Keep your energy contained. Don’t let friends lead you off your path. Stay focused. Instead of doing a million different tasks and being busy, do one task a million times and be successful. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may find it challenging to stick to your schedule. Much of it just doesn’t sound appealing to you anymore. You crave new and exciting twists. Your association with a Gemini could provide just what you need. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are highly imaginative and will benefit from pursuing your artistic whims. Be careful not to seek a metaphysical explanation for a problem that could be solved easily through practical means. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will find inspiration as you withdraw from the mainstream and investigate new venues. You may do this via the Internet, though it will be more motivating to talk to people face to face and see an environment first hand.

Page 12 — THE BERLIN DAILY SUN, Thursday, September 8, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren

ISSUES OF IDENTITY ARE SERIOUS MATTER FOR ADOPTEES, FAMILIES

DEAR ABBY: May I weigh in on the letter from “Noah’s Real Dad in New York” (June 27), whose adult adopted son wants to reclaim his original last name? I am an adult adoptee who searched for and found my birth family. I also joined a support group that was formed to support the adoption triad. Research has shown that male adoptees struggle with their identity more than females do. After all, in our patriarchal society it is the male surname that most often does not get changed in marriage. Women are accustomed to the fact that they will most likely change their name. This family needs to do some reading on the subject, There are many resources out there. A family counselor who isn’t well-educated about adoption issues will not be helpful. Unless you walk in an adoptee’s shoes you cannot judge their actions. After all, the adoption decision is made without the consent of the child. We also resent being treated like children after we are adults. Noah is a 34-year-old adult able to make his own choices and decisions. Noah is fortunate that he knows his birth father and didn’t have to search a bureaucratic maze to obtain any information. Laws have been passed in several, not all, states allowing adoptees to get important information about their birth families that is necessary for taking care of ourselves and our own children. -- DEBBIE IN FLORIDA DEAR DEBBIE: Your letter reflects the strong sentiments of many adoptees and their families who wrote to me expressing their disappointment in my reply to Noah’s adoptive father. Here are some of their responses: DEAR ABBY: I am an adoptive parent in an open adoption with our children’s birth families, and I vehemently disagree

with what you wrote. My children have two mothers and two fathers. My husband and I are the parents who are raising them, but that slip of paper signed by a judge does not erase their family of origin. It shouldn’t. They have an adoptive family and a biological one and should be able to have a relationship with both. My children also have two names. The names they were given at birth and the names my husband and I gave them when we adopted them as infants. They will always know about these two sets of names. When they are older, if they wish to be called by their birth name, we will have to respect that. It does not mean they love us less or that we are not their parents. What is DOES mean is that adoption is more complicated than most people realize, and as our children grow into adults, we need to give them the space and freedom to discover for themselves who they are. -- AN ADOPTIVE MOTHER IN ILLINOIS DEAR ABBY: I agree with you 100 percent! How horrible, disrespectful and mean-spirited of that 34-year-old son. I understand why he is interested in the family history of his biological father, but he could record that history for the future without changing his current surname. Doesn’t Noah realize his biological father was an adult who made up his mind to give up his rights to his son, including the rights to his last name? If Noah doesn’t respect his adoptive father for giving him his last name, and if Noah is set on changing his surname, it would be more respectful to take his mother’s maiden name as his surname. I hope Noah reconsiders the issue he’s creating, and at 34 he makes a wiser adult decision than his biological parent did. -- PHYLLIS IN OHIO

Mounties shut down Kennett 2-0 BY JEAN LEBLANC THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

BERLIN-- The Berlin defense held the Kennett offense to just five shots on goal, and youngsters Jon Lam and Ryan Richard scored the game’s only goals, lifting the Mountaineers to a 2-0 victory over the Eagles in Berlin Tuesday. There was just 18:03 to play in the first half. Jesse Deblois used a long

throw-in down the left side of the field, allowing Jewett to turn the corner on the Eagle defense. Kennett goal tender Scott Connor was forced to commit to Jewett. Jewett sent a crossing pass to the center of the Eagle goal crease. There he found the foot of Lam. Lam wasted no time re-directing the crossing pass into the net for a 1-0 Mountaineer lead.

GORHAM — The Lisbon Panthers scored two goals in the first three minutes of the game and went on to defeat the Lady Huskies 4-1 in Gorham on Tuesday. “We got off to a slow start,” said first year coach Jeff Stewart. “If you took away the first few minutes and a couple of defensive lapses in the second half, it was a heck of a game.” Lisbon pounced on Gorham to take a quick 2-0 lead. That put Gorham back on their heels defensively. By the end of the first half, Gorham was beginning to show some signs of offense. In the second half, Lisbon scored at the midway mark on a shot that just got under the cross bar and past Huskie goal tender Casandra Poulin. Lisbon pushed it to 4-0 on a defensive mistake by the young Gorham defense. The Gorham fans did get a chance to applaud the Huskies’ hard work with just 10 minutes to go. Lily Keenan used a deflected clearing pass that made it to her feet. The

Gorham sniper zigged and then zagged her way past a couple of defenders to fire a shot on Lisbon net minder Hannah Champagne. The Gorham goal made it a final score of 4-1 and was Keenan’s third goal of the fall. Gorham’s Poulin finished the game with ten saves in the Huskie net, while Champagne ended at seven blocks. Both teams had four corner kicks. “We need to make some minor adjustments defensively,” said Stewart. “We’ll put some players in different positions and better utilize some of our experienced players. Lisbon is definately a team we can play with.” The Gorham girls will be at home on the Gorham Common on Friday afternoon. The Huskies play host to Colebrook at 4 p.m. GHS 0 1-1 LHS 2 2-4 Saves: GHS- Poulin 10, LHSChampagne 7.

Lady Mounties top Eagles, 2-0

CONWAY — Sophomore Carly Perreault fired home a pair of goals, helping her team to a 2-0 victory over the Kennett Eagles, in an inter-divisional field hockey game in Conway, on Tuesday. Perreault’s first goal came at 24:39 of the first half. Berlin was working off of a corner attempt. Lindsey Couture made the pass to Perreault. Perreault used a strong flick to get the ball into the Eagle goal and past net minder Kori Sandman for the 1-0 lead. An almost exact type of goal as the first one, occurred in the second half at the 18:31 mark. It began with a corner from Couture to Perreault. MOUNTIES from page 14

The Mountaineers controlled play throughout the contest. Strong defensive work by Jeremy Rivard, Quinn Morrissette, Travis Lapointe, and Deblois limited the scoring chances for the visiting Eagles. The Mounties got an insurance goal early in the second half off of an indirect kick that was just outside the penalty area. A Berlin shot was deflected right back to an open Richard. The Mountie forward blistered a shot to the far side, that Kennett’s Connor was initially screened by a maze of players in front of him. The goal was unassisted and Richard’s third goal of the fall.

The insurance goal made it 2-0 and was Perreault’s fourth of the fall. For the game, Berlin goal keeper, Morgan Ouellet had two saves and her opponent Sandman had six blocks. The Berlin girls held the edge in corners nine to two. The victory elevated Berlin to 3-0 and to the top of the division III standings. The Mounties will host the Franklin Golden Tornadoes on Friday at Community Field at 4 p.m. BHS 1 1-2 KHS 0 0-0 Scoring: BHS- Perreault 2, KHSnone. Saves: BHS- Ouellet 2, KHSSandman 6. At the sound of the final whistle, Berlin had earned the inter-divisional victory and now sit on top of the division III standings. Senior Curtis Arsenault earned his third shut-out of the year by blocking five Kennett shots. Berlin held a seven to three advantage in corners. The Berlin boys will host Newfound Regional on Friday at the high school, game time is 4 p.m. BHS 1 1-2 KHS 0 0-0 Scoring: BHS- Lam, Richard, KHSNone. Saves: BHS- Arsenault 5, KHSConnor 5.
