OSSIPEE -- Sex, beer, rape, theft and fraud. A Superior Court jury heard it all during the trial of an Ossipee man who it later convicted on a slew of charges following a crime spree that began in Wakefield and ended in Tamworth two years ago. Michael Cheney, 50, of Ossipee, was accused of raping a Wakefield woman at knife point, tying her up, and stealing her car on Dec. 26, 2008, and then fleeing north where he entered into a high speed chase with law enforcement. Police picked up his trail in Ossipee, where he collided with a state police cruiser and evaded police by darting into the wrong lane and into the breakdown lane at an excessive rate of speed. Police corralled him in Tamworth where he had to be forcibly removed from the stolen Geo Prizm, police said. The jury heard closing arguments from both sides on Thursday, March 23. The jury came back into session on Monday morning and delivered a verdict by 11:50 a.m. Out of the 14 original charges, the jury found Cheney guilty of 10. Two

Tourist leave with American babies

SAN GABRIEL, Calif. — The building inspectors and police officers walked into the small row of connected town houses here knowing something was amiss. Neighbors had complained about noise and a lot of pregnant women coming and going. And when they went into a kitchen they saw a row of clear bassinets holding several infants, with a woman acting as a nurse hovering over them. For months, officials say, the house was home to “maternity tourists,” in this case, women from China who had paid tens of thousands of dollars to deliver their babies in the United States, making the infants automatic American citizens. Officials shut down the home, sending the 10 mothers who had been living there with their babies to nearby motels. “These were not women living in squalor — it was a well taken care of place and clean, but there were a lot of women and babies,” said Clayton Anderson, a city inspector who shut down the house. “I have never seen anything like this before. We really couldn’t determine the exact number of people living there.” For the last year, the debate over birthright citizenship has raged across the country, with some political leaders calling for an end to the 14th Amendment, which gives automatic citizenship to any baby born in the United States.

Nuclear crisis spawns criticism of authorities TOKYO (NY Times) — As workers at Japan’s crippled nuclear plant piled up sandbags and readied emergency storage tanks on Tuesday to stop a fresh leak of highly contaminated water from reaching the ocean, criticism rose over the handling of the crisis by the top governmental and civilian authorities. Prime Minister Naoto Kan responded to questions for the first time since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that damaged

the plant, saying that his government was in a state of maximum alert over three stricken reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station and defending his visit there March 12. Some lawmakers have suggested his presence delayed emergency efforts. But Mr. Kan insisted his March 12 visit was not a “political performance,” the Kyodo news service reported. “Grasping the situation at the plant at that time was extremely important,” he said.

Schools under pressure to spare the rod forever (NY Times) WICHITA FALLS, Texas — When Tyler Anastopoulos, an 11th grader from Wichita Falls, got in trouble for skipping detention at his high school recently, he was sent to the assistant principal and given three swift swats to the backside. The blows were so severe they caused deep bruises and the boy wound up in the hospital, Ms. Herring said. Corporal punishment is still alive in 20 states, according to the Center for Effective Discipline, a

group that tracks its use in schools around the country and advocates for its end. Most of those states are in the South, where paddling remains engrained in the social and family fabric of some communities. This month, Tyler, who attends City View Junior/Senior High School, told his story to lawmakers in Texas, which is considering a ban on corporal punishment. The same week, legislators in New Mexico voted to end the practice there.

“This quake, tsunami and the nuclear accident are the biggest crises for Japan” in decades, Mr. Kan said in Parliament, adding his own sharp rebuke of the plant’s operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, or Tepco. “It’s undeniable their assumptions about tsunamis were greatly mistaken,” Mr. Kan said, Bloomberg reported. “The fact that their standards were too low invited the current situation.”

Qaddafi forces counterattack after rebel Advance stalls RAS LANUF, Libya (NY Times) — Having halted a westward push by rebel fighters, forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi began a counteroffensive on Tuesday, marching eastward to the outskirts of this critical oil town, as an array of diplomats gathered in London to shape a political vision of a post-Qaddafi era. “We meet now in London at a turning point,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told the conference, urging continued military action by the NATO-led coalition in Libya along with “political and diplomatic pressure that makes clear to Qaddafi that he must go.” On the ground, though, there was no indication that Colonel Qaddafi was prepared even for the cease-fire demanded by the United Nations resolution 12 days ago authorizing the military operation in Libya.

Courts could lay off 100 soon BY MADDIE HANNA THE CONCORD MONITOR

With as many as 100 layoffs of court employees on the horizon, the judicial branch is moving forward more quickly than it intended with plans to halve the managerial staff in the state’s probate, district and family courts, consolidating the three divisions into circuit courts by July 1. Judicial officials said that restructuring, which doesn’t involve closing any courts, would take years to accomplish when they announced their plans in January. But state budget writers asked them to accelerate that process, and this week administrative judges informed the clerks, deputy clerks and probate registers in the courts slated for consolidation that all of them would need to apply for the new circuit court positions. Of the 52 clerk-level positions in those courts, only 21 will remain come June 30 if the Legislature signs off on the plan, said Judge Edwin Kelly, who oversees the state’s family and district courts. He said the number of deputy clerks will go from 60 to 28 in the restructuring. “As a manager, it’s a very, very positive, but very painful” process, Kelly said yesterday. Anticipating the plan will be approved by the full Legislature, the judicial branch posted the circuit court positions online yesterday morning, and Kelly said those interested in the jobs will have until Thursday to apply. Interviews will be conducted in April, and by the first week of May, judicial officials will make their selections known, Kelly said. But beyond those reductions, layoffs are coming across the entire judicial branch, which has about 530 employees. The number won’t be finalized until the state budget is complete, but officials expect the layoffs could hit as many as 100 employees, said courts spokeswoman Laura Kiernan. Kiernan said all court employees received a memo this week from Chief Justice Linda Dalianis regarding the

likely layoffs, which judicial officials say will be necessary because of a budget shortfall. The House Finance Committee recently decided to give the judicial branch an extra $2.9 million next year, bringing its overall recommended appropriation to $77.4 million. But while Dalianis said that money will stave off some layoffs, the committee intended much of it for projects the branch proposed earlier this year, including the adoption of an e-court system. And it’s still not enough to bring the branch’s budget up to what is needed to maintain the current level of operations — without taking more unpaid furlough days, Kiernan said. She said judicial officials have committed to not including furloughs in the upcoming budget, after courts across the state shut down for 12 days this year. “The Supreme Court believes that it’s not fair to continue to try to balance the state budget by closing the courts to the public,” Kiernan said. The furloughs also cut into the salaries of nearly every judge, marital master and staff member, Kiernan said, “and no one else in state government paid that price.” Rep. William Belvin, the chairman of the House Finance subcommittee that deals with the judicial branch’s budget, said it was important to committee members that the courts stay open. “We wanted to see that justice is kept close to the people,” said Belvin, a Hillsborough Republican. Asked about the direction the committee gave judicial officials, Belvin said legislators “encouraged them to be swift” with their plans to create the circuit court system. “Any major systems effort — and that’s what this is, a big change in process — the longer it takes, the greater the risk you get intercepted by other issues that happen,” Belvin said. He said making the change all at once “reduces the uncertainty for personnel.”

J. William Fritz J. William Fritz, 86, of Freedom, was born in Boston on Oct. 28, 1924 and died there of heart failure on March 20, 2011, with his wife and children by his side. He was the son of Max and Sarah Fritz, who founded Fritz’s Camp, now Camp Marist, on Lake Ossipee. Bill grew up in Effingham Falls and Miami Beach. He was a graduate of Effingham Falls Grammar School, Miami Beach High School, Tufts University and Boston University Law School. He spent his first year in college at University of New Hampshire and was then transferred to Tufts in the Navy V-12 program. He served in the Navy during World War II and was discharged as a Lt.JG in 1946. After law school he worked for Harbridge House and later as a contracts manager for defense companies such as General Electric, Grumman and most recently Loral. He retired to Freedom after suffering heart attacks in 1983. His closest ties were to Carroll County. His heart was always here. The only diploma that hung on the wall was that of June 1938 from the Effingham Falls Grammar School. He enjoyed being with people, and they enjoyed learning local history and lore from his engaging stories including many from his summers at Fritz’s Camp. Last fall there was a family reunion that included a tour of the camp. He was admired by his family and friends for his gentle, caring and compassionate nature and his wonderful

He was a supporter of many environmental and preservation causes such as The Nature Conservancy and Society for the Preservation of New Hampshire Forests as well as those that reflected his concern for other people such as the American Indian relief organizations, Common Cause and the Southern Poverty Law Center. He was unwaveringly devoted to the preservation of the local New Hampshire area. In the early years of his retirement he enjoyed playing golf with his friends and traveling with his wife, Lee. Bill loved reading and collecting books. He also loved working outside on the hill where he could look down on Lake Ossipee and the distant Ossipee mountains with Green Mountain to the south and Chocorua to the north. Bill is survived by his wife of 59 years, Lee; his son, Marcus Fritz and his wife, Kathryn; his daughter, Robbie Stanhope and her husband, Peter; seven grandchildren, Rachel, Jeffrey, and Samuel Warach and Jake, Madeline, Elaina, and Monica Fritz; twin sisters, Ruth Milesky and Myra Sherman.

Buyers paid fair market value for B&Bs To the editor: I feel the need to address a statement declared by another commercial real estate broker in Wednesday’s Conway Daily Sun (March 23). In the fine article written by Tom Eastman regarding business activity of B&Bs, motels and hotels in the Mount Washington Valley region, the statement made was “The bed-and-breakfast market is really struggling, because they paid too much and the market has changed, too.” When these properties were purchased some three to six years ago the buyers paid fair market value which was substantiated by certified commercial appraisers, commercial bank lending criteria with a financial formula which included a debt service ratio allowing for projected owner’s salaries and surplus cash from existing cash flow of sales. Any projections with sales increases in a business plan were merely that, projections of future income based upon past increases in sales revenues over recent years. Commercial lending institutions based their decisions of financing upon the existing history of rooms and meals sales, not future

projections. With very little notice the challenging times of ownership developed from a serious fall off in guest sales due to rapidly changing economic conditions worldwide, not that the buyers paid too much for their business. They, too, like many homeowners who refinanced or purchased a home during this time frame, millions of Wall Street investors, police departments, school systems, perhaps our own Social Security system along with the rest of us in a struggling economy fell victim to this changing economic environment. Guests and vacationers for these hospitality operations could no longer visit our region as they have in the past and could no longer have meals in our restaurants in the same way. While some hospitality properties, particularly to newer ones and certain restaurants are still doing well enough, many are not and it’s not because they paid too much; discretionary spending is no longer available to our guests as it once was to them.

In appreciation for Rep. Patten’s honorable stance

Humorous Ossipee Appraisal Circus must come to an end

To the editor: I would like to extend my appreciation to Representative Betsy Patton who, acting as chairman of the County Delegation, brought to light an egregious violation of RSA: 91a: the public’s right to know. She exposed an effort being made by certain Carroll County state representatives to conduct both argument and vote alignment outside of the public eye on issues pertaining to the county budget. Chairman Patten did state that she would not be a party to any activity she thought may contravene the spirit of 91:a,: a very commendable action on her part, one for which I extend my thanks. It was discussed at Monday’s delegation’s meeting that there are those newly elected representatives that still have an incomplete understanding of how the public’s right to know is protected. It was put forth that the error in process brought out by Chairman Patten was an error in understanding and not an intentional effort to keep certain conversations out of the public eye: an assumption with only partial validity. An e-mail singed by Representative Norman Tregenza of Carroll County District 2 ( Albany, Eaton and Madison), made public at the delegation

To the editor: Ossipee Circus The Humorous Ossipee Appraisal Circus Ossipee does not need a circus to come to town, it already has one, no ring master. The following are actual authentic performances by real performers. Circus Program The 2010 five-year revaluation system requires that an in house inspection be done by an appraiser. Even when this is done and the tax cards reflect the update of the present value, one may ask for a review of the value of one’s building or land, be prepared for a circus. Let the Circus Begin…. The Juggling Act A lot of land was assessed for 63,000. The new preliminary tax card came out with $311,000. The shocked assessor corrected the tax card to $90,000. The tax card came out with $240,000. The jugglers are so bad they do not even want to talk about it. The Magician You receive your preliminary tax card and ask for a review of your building assessment because you consider it over assessed. The assessor lowers the value down, the magician makes it disappear and the larger number appears. No one will discuss the way this trick was done. The Trapeze A home owner does not have central air and there is no overhead duct work throughout the house, but the town employee doesn’t know what central air is. The employee thinks that the wall unit is somehow central air. So the employee tells the homeowner he should not complain since he has so many added features. The Act is well over our heads. Circus Rules and Regulations (by Cross Country Appraisers) No one can appeal unless the second assessor can enter your house, no doubt with the town employee to get advice, council and direction. The Joker Act Where is the work sheet used to create the tax card? The joke is on all of us as no one will produce it. Circus Security Security found Long Sands had a higher premium of 0.25 as dictated by the N.H. Board of Appeals had been voided. The premium was applied due the view of Mount Chocorua. Cross Country saw two Mount Chocoruas so doubling the view tax. Security proved there is only one Mount Chocorua. The premium of .25 was restored. The Circus Question Game Not would you sell your property at the assessor’s value, but could you sell it at the assessor’s value? The Up Coming Monkey Act No one can appeal unless he agrees to not appeal then he will be allowed to appeal, or cannot appeal unless you agree to apologize for asking for an appeal. The Circus Game Roll the dice, roll it again, the highest number becomes the assessed value. The Cost to Run the Circus The town could save a considerable amount of money if it operated like other towns and had one appraiser do appraisals. Why do the selectmen in Ossipee feel it requires two? Do they feel the taxpayers can afford it since they have so many “Added Features”. Circus Moving A garage is in one location on a one half acre lot, it is moved to another location on the same lot and the value doubles. This is how the Circus makes money. Tickets You need a ticket to get into the Circus.

meeting, specifically states at the end of the e-mail the following, “If this (referring to the e-mail) should be forwarded to anyone outside of the delegation it would be appreciated knowing to and by whom.” In spite of the tortured use of language, this quote does appear to indicate an attempt at secrecy or conspiracy. Another aspect of the e-mail exchange between representatives made public at the delegation meeting concerned communications between various representatives soliciting the alignment of votes prior to Monday’s public hearing for a cut of $230,000 from the nursing home budget: a portion of the budget previously gone over in public and in detail by both the nursing home sub-committee and the entire delegation with no motion ever made to vote a cut of this size. As the e-mails were made public during a public hearing they are now part of the public record. If anyone wants full copies they should be available from the delegation’s secretary. I have sincere appreciation for Representative Patten’s honorable stance. Henry Spencer Effingham

In light of cuts I fear for wellbeing of our citizens To the editor: When I read what extreme cuts are proposed for a vote this week in the New Hampshire Legislature, I fear for the wellbeing of our citizens. Many of the cuts will affect those with the most serious needs – people receiving Medicaid, disabled and elderly receiving home health care, day care, and mealson-wheels. What about some examples? Sure. They propose to eliminate $126,000 in funding of volunteer services for foster grandparents and for RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program); to eliminate $321,000 for home care for Alzheimer’s and related disorder treatment (which currently affects 910 NH families); to remove $736,000 for congregate housing support (which currently serves 225 people — that may seem expensive till one realizes that that’s less than $3,300 per person per year!) Also eliminated would be all funding for Service Link, an amazingly helpful counseling ser-

vice for seniors –— helping to sort through issues of Medicare and long term care, two very complicated issues that many seniors and their relatives need help understanding. We hear on the news that the cuts discussed will not affect New Hampshire residents. Who else? In fact, the New Hampshire seniors and disabled people for whom funding will be cut are not the only New Hampshire residents that will be affected; their families will also have to deal with the funding changes and disruption. One other nonsensical proposal from this legislature: Save us each $30 on our annual auto registrations, and then withhold funds for essential repairs to our bridges and roads. With the numbers of red-listed bridges increasing, I’d rather pay my $30 and hope for safer travel. Betsey Harding Jackson

Thanks for attending benefit for hospice program To the editor: The Bearded Wonders of Wakefield would like to say thank you to all those attending our ninth annual variety show on Feb. 20 at the Wakefield Opera House. We are very fortunate and grateful for the local support we receive. In addition, a big thank you to all the performers who donated their time and talent.

We mustn’t forget our event Sponsors who make it possible for us to have the shows we enjoy throughout the year. Lastly, a big thank you to all those individuals who help us within the opera house. We live in a great town. Hopefully we will exceed $1,200 for Southern Carroll County Hospice. Ed Morrison Wakefield

It is called a tax card. It should have a picture of your house and a date as to when it was printed, but do not be surprised if you find a picture of someone else’s garage on it or a date two years sooner or an inconsistency between Notes and Added Features. It is OK, the selectmen maintain Cross Country considers these cards to be correct. One must now consider the accuracy of the total Tax Card? Circus Protective Custody There is a form of a Protective Custody Policy to a members of the Circus who is not able to perform. Continuing Act There is no word as to when the harassment that has been given to the ticket holders is going to come to an end. This director and creator of the Circus is to continue to have responsibility that allows this employee to perform these acts due to a total lack of knowledge of NH Assessing 101. This only creates resentment towards the town and shows a total lack of respect towards the taxpayer. Circus Management Management of the Circus needs to listen to the taxpayers and see to it that the Circus Act does not continue. Management’s statement, “We do not anticipate that the problem’s you have experienced in the past will be repeated in the future.” What steps have been taken to prevent it? Circus Public Servants Each and every ticket holder has a duty and responsibility to direct and instruct a town’s public servants as to how they should serve them. The servant should be looking out for what is best for the taxpayer. This Circus Must Come to an End. To The Circus Management: Someone has to say it like it is so it is up front and so it can be addressed. Selectman, although you have responded to what you thought the most pertinent, you have not addressed the most important one that is the cause of most of these outrageous issues. If the focus is not directed to the root causes of the issues, then such issues will continue. Having a unqualified clerk making decisions which rules assessors is beyond anyone’s imagination and continues to raise the question, which has been avoided. Who is in charge? Cross Country or the assessing clerk? This question has yet to be answered and it is the crux of these issues. Is it the policy of Ossipee to have two assessors going out to make an assessment going to continue? If so then there should be a warrant to revoke it to one like the other towns. This is a total waste of needed resources and tax payers money. What is being done to correct the poor conditions of the tax cards? Do we need a qualified clerk to do this? This person should be one who is taxpayer friendly since it is the taxpayer who is paying the salary. Those in the town hall offering to teach assessing 101 should take it themselves first. Since all these issues but one was created by the assessing clerk, this indicates she is not qualified to be doing what she is doing. So what is being done to prevent the grievances (which is a form of taxpayer’s harassment). I would appreciate any further comments regarding grievances from the tax payers. If you wish to join the circus you must forward your credentials to: George W. Eisener Swampscott, Mass.

Since 2005, the Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County has had an office in Wolfeboro, and in January it opened a satellite office in Conway. Between 2006 and the end of 2010, the center has had 93 cases from Conway. Ossipee, the town with the second highest number, had 53. Center director Liz Kelley says it is logical Conway has the highest number of cases because it has the biggest population. They also get a lot of cases from Conway because the Conway Police Department. There are also a substantial number from southern Carroll County when town totals are added together. As examples, there were 39 cases from Wolfeboro and 47 from Wakefield. On the national level one quarter of girls will be sexually abused before they reach 18 years old. For boys it's one out of six, said Kelley. "All these kids who come in here are very, very brave. It's a difficult thing that they went through. It's a diffcult thing to talk about. " said Kelley. "If they can talk about it, the least I can to do is listen." Each case requires substantial time and attention. They are followed until they reach their conclusions. Cases aren't neatly wrapped up in 42 minutes like people see on television crime shows, she said. Referrals to the CAC come from the state or local law enforcement. The new Conway office should make it easier for northern families to get services. The center located in Wolfeboro originally because they had office space given to it, said Kelley. As the name implies, Child Advocacy Center aids in the investigation and prosecution of child abuse in the county. It also handles children who are witnesses of violent crime. Most of the case involve sexual abuse. Prior to its inception, a child victim would be interviewed multiple times by a variety of agencies such as local police and the county attorney's office. "Kids were going through these traumatic things and having to relive it over and over again as part of the investigation," said Kelley. "What Carroll County did, as a community, is commit to having a child advocacy center where it would be a safe place for kids to go to be interviewed by a professional who knows what he or she is doing." Now with the center, a child only need tell his or her story once. The interview is recorded. It's also observed by a team of representatives from other agencies involved in the case. Those include local law enforcement, the county attorney's office. Those other people sit behind a one-way glass. The people in the

observation room can communicate with the interviewer via an earpiece microphone. Kelley and Donna Swett perform the interviews. Interviewers, like Kelley, are specially trained not to ask leading questions. The first rule Kelley lays out for the child is to tell the truth. That's not only important for the child, but for the accused as well. Conway police Lt. Chris Perley called the Child Advocacy Center an "invaluable" asset to the community. Child abuse cases are both painful and difficult. The Conway Police feel grateful that the center has been able to help them with many cases. "We would go wherever they go," said Perley. Kelley said her agency can help children of all ages if they are able to speak. Kelley has interviewed twoyear-olds. The upper end goes to age 18. But as a favor to law enforcement, they will also interview adults who were children when they were victimized. The vast majority of child victims are abused by people they know, a relative or an acquaintance. There are many kinds of abuse, said Kelley who declined to describe specific types of cases. Only about five percent involve strangers. All New Hampshire counties have an Child Advocacy Center. Coos County opened its center last year. It gets its funding from a variety of sources such as Carroll County government, Department of Justice grants, fund raising, and donations. One of the biggest fund raisers is a golf tournament at Bald Peak Colony Club in Tuftonboro. April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The center will be having fund raisers, including one at Buckey's in Moultonborough on April 20 from 5 to 7 p.m. The center's budget is $145,000. Of that, about $40,000 usually comes from the county and $20,000 comes from the department of justice. The rest comes from contributions and fund raising efforts. The center also makes cases less expensive to investigate. A University of New Hampshire study found traditional investigations cost $3,949. But when the center gets involved, the cost drops to $2,902. Much of that is probably training costs, said Kelley. Kelley said she has 15 law enforcement agencies in her jurisdiction. If all 15 agencies had to train a forensic interviewer then it would be much more costly. The center's Conway office is located in the Children Unlimited building at 182 West Main Street. In Wolfeboro the office is located at 56 Union Street. "We rely on community support for a lot of our budget," said Kelley. For more information visit —Daymond Steer

BUDGET from page one

board's recommended budget of $3.3 million and the default budget, which is $190,000 more, took effect, would they return that $190,000 to the taxpayers? "I have a question I would like the school board members to answer," said DiGregorio, who also emailed the question to the sitting board last week. "There is an effort by some taxpayers in town to vote down the amended school budget in hopes of having the default budget pass. Some believe that this would solve two problems, the first one being it would stop any litigation that may occur between the town of Conway budget committee and the school board and two, it would also send a clear message to the budget committee that the people of Conway will not settle for less than a quality education. Although I would like all seven board members to take a position on this issue," he continued, "I need a commitment from at least the four current school board members who are not up for reelection. Would each member make a pledge in public that if the default budget ends up being the budget passed, the four sitting school board members agree not to spend any more money than what was voted on by the taxpayers at the deliberative meeting for the school budget?" "I think it would be the fiscally responsible thing to do," Davison, the lone member to respond to DiGregorio's email, said. "It would be my intent," Brydon said, but also left the door ajar incase of any unforeseen occurrences, "but if a roof were to collapse. I can't promise anything if their are extenuating circumstances." "My first answer is we should stick to the budget we set," White added. Klement agreed. "I hope we do not get the default," he said. "I hope we get the budget we sought." The proposed school budget is $33.1 million — $3.6 million more than what the budget committee had recommended when it voted for an 11 percent cut last month. At the annual deliberative meeting March 9, the legislative body restored the full 11 percent. If the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration imposes the 10 percent rule, which school superintendent Carl Nelson believes it will, the DRA would begin reducing the budget from the last approved warrant article up until it gets to the budget and will make $829,000 in total cuts. The default budget, normally a fallback option that limits spending, is $190,473 more than the proposed budget this year. Nelson said the DRA could rule that the default budget may be subject to a 10 percent cut, too. "That's the big unknown," he said. "It's never happened before in the state." DiGregorio believes the default budget is not subject to the 10 percent rule and therefore would supply the necessary funds the school board is looking for as well as avoid any sort of a legal battle.

Mike DiGregorio attended the Conway School Board’s meeting Monday.

"My intent is to vote no on the budget on April 12 in hopes that we get to the default budget," DiGregorio said by phone Tuesday. "I know there are other people who plan to do that in hopes that we end up out of the court system. I'm pretty sure that's what will happen if the proposed budget passes and the DRA starts cutting. "As a selectman of the town," he continued, "I have no intention of putting one entity up against another one. The only ones who are going to win there are the lawyers. No one can answer the question whether it will be a legal battle between the school and the DRA attorneys or the school and the budget committee, which would be the selectmen who have to determine if they'll defend it. I for one don't want to fight another entity in town, we'd be paying twice." School board chairman Janine McLauchlan said the board could challenge the DRA if it rules against it and may end up going to the New Hampshire Supreme Court to settle the matter. "The board does have some possible challenge options along the way," Nelson said. "As Attorney (John) Teague has raised the issue of did the budget committee do its work properly." To date, through February, the board had spent between $6,000-$7,000 in legal fees. A challenge to the DRA ruling could be another $12,000 to $20,000 while if the board pursued the matter to the supreme court it would possibly be an additional $10,000. "It could cost us between $37,000 to $40,000 to challenge and hopefully prevail," McLauchlan said. "We fully support the budget we have put forward." DiGregorio felt "confident" the board members would stick to their original figure even if the default budget were adopted. "Unless there's a natural disaster I think they'll stick to intent of the school board's budget," he said. "Overall, this district has been very committed to returning unexpended funds to the taxpayers." Voting for school and town officials and warrant articles takes place April 12 at the Conway Community Building in Center Conway from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Grant’s to enter into new partnership with Hannaford effective April 18 BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BARTLETT — When it comes to grocery shopping, consumers living on the northern end of Mount Washington Valley just got a little closer to North Conway’s Hannaford. That’s how Grant’s Supermarket owner Dan Craffey described the impact of his independent store’s pending new business relationship with Hannaford Supermarkets, effective April 18. “We will be able to offer an amazing value for people living in Bartlett,

Jackson and Glen. They will be able to get here what the North Conway Hannaford has, without having to fight the traffic downtown,” said Craffey Monday. Grant’s will be known as Grant’s Shop ‘n Save, and it will feature the same prices and produce available at nearby Hannaford North Conway and all Hannaford stores. Hannaford, based in Scarborough, Maine, and featuring 173 stores in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont, was previously known as Shop ‘n Save. Hannaford employs more than

27,000 associates, according to its website. Grant’s has a staff of 34, according to Paul McGonagle, who has been manager of the store for 21 years. Grant’s will continue to be an independent store, with all of the same employees that customers have come to know, and vice versa, according to Craffey and McGonagle, but the two companies’ new relationship will bring Hannaford’s expertise, product line and prices to Grant’s. see GRANT’S page 14

Zakon Group’s OpenConf goes multilingual CONWAY – Zakon Group has released the latest version of OpenConf, the leading web-based peerreview management system. Among the new features is the ability for authors to use the software in their native language. The initial multilingual release includes support for Chinese and French, with an additional half dozen languages expected to be available by year end. OpenConf has powered thousands of conferences, journals, grants and competitions in over 90 countries. With such a worldwide user base, localized

versions of the software have been one of the most requested features. “Customer feedback is a critical aspect of OpenConf’s development, and we are quite pleased to be making this feature available in both our professional edition and free community edition,” said Robert Zakon, founder and chief technology officer of Zakon Group LLC. Prior to using OpenConf, many organizations would have submissions e-mailed in, and then laboriously have to e-mail them out to reviewers, as well as collate the review data. With OpenConf, all steps are conducted

over the web, including the ability to send out notifications. “We have used OpenConf releases 2 and 3 and find them to be very useful,” said Gordon Sick, professor of finance at the University of Calgary and webmaster for the Northern Finance Association. A key benefit of OpenConf for Sick is that “selecting papers is simplified by being able to sort by the average referee score, quickly selecting the top ones and then focusing attention on the mid-ranked papers.” see ZAKON page 17

Chocorua Camping Village receives top rating CHOCORUA — Woodall's Campground Directory has given Chocorua Camping Village KOA a 5W/5W rating for 2011. This is the directory's top rating. A total of 333 out of over 14,000 campgrounds across North America received the 5W/5W rating, and, of those, 39 were KOA campgrounds and one was in New Hampshire. "We are deeply honored to receive this rating in recognition of our place in the camping industry" said Leo Spencer, owner. "It is gratifying to receive this award because it tells us we are on the right path, in customer service and facility amenities." In order to rate campgrounds across North America, Woodall's field teams conduct their own on-site inspections of every park. The final ratings are derived from several different areas such as the campground's physical grounds, restrooms, site and

road developments, surrounding recreation and superior maintenance of its facilities. The Chocorua Camping Village KOA is nestled in the pines along the banks of Moore's Pond and the Chocorua River off Route 16 in Chocorua. It has been owned and operated by Leo and Shirley Spencer for over 35 years. "We have built our park from the ground up and are blessed to have such a wonderful location and friendly and dedicated staff that makes each year more enjoyable," the Spencers said in a press release. Open from May 1 to Oct. 15, with winter camping beginning Nov. 1. Chocorua Camping Village KOA encompasses nearly 200 acres along the shores of Moore's Pond and the Chocorua River. Guests enjoy carefully preserved wooded campsites in an unspoiled environment. There is a full-time recreation department staff, miles of scenic biking

and hiking trails and a dock on Moore's pond full of rental boats. Rustic cabins and cottages are perfect for couples, families or camping groups. Water, sewage, electric, cable and WIFI are included in all RV sites. The campground also has a dog park, agility course and a staffed Doggy Day Care. "I am aware of one other business in the immediate area that caters to dogs as much as we do and that is the Lazy Dog Inn, Steve and Lauren Sousa, a wonderful bed and breakfast, just down the street in Chocorua," said Marletta Maduskuie, marketing. "Although I am new to the campground, I am not surprised at all the awards the campground has received. It is a pretty extraordinary facility which caters to its guests."

GRANT’S from page 12

“It will be all the same friendly faces. We remain an independent retailer but we will be affiliated with Hannaford. We plan to be putting up the new Grant’s Shop ‘n Save sign April 17. We will close that day, and re-open on the 18th, with a grand opening some time after that. We’re very excited about this,” said Craffey, owner of the 10,000-square-foot Grant’s and of the surrounding Glen Shopaid, located at the juncture of Routes 302 and 16. Craffey said he is also partnering with Hannaford for his other store in Gray, Maine, which henceforth will be known as Gray’s Shop ‘n Save. “This gives us huge buying power,” said Craffey, who said he was approached by Hannaford a year ago and has been in negotiation with the company since that time. “Hannaford is a great outfit, run right out of Scarborough. We will have access to their business counselors, and we will have fresh produce on a daily basis, so this will be a huge thing for us. Paul [store manager McGonagle] was amazed at the variety.” see GRANTS page 17

New incentives on energy efficiency loans offered

CONCORD — The Community Development Finance Authority has announced for a limited time it is lowering interest rates for its popular Enterprise Energy Fund loans to 2 percent for up to 10 years. In addition, grants will be available to cover audit and project costs for organizations applying before April 15. The move is designed to increase the numbers of local businesses and nonprofits who are upgrading and retrofitting their facilities with energy efficient solutions. “This is a really fantastic offer for businesses and nonprofits who want to do green upgrades. Not only are we lowering the cost to borrow money, but we’re also going to help pay toward the overall cost of the project,” said Kevin Flynn, CDFA communications director. “We hope this rate-reduction and these grants will entice companies who are considering energy projects but don’t know what work they need or how they’ll finance it.” For a limited time, the Enterprise

Energy Fund is offering a 2 percent interest rate on loans for up to 10 years for energy efficiency projects, and a 25 percent grant toward the total loan amount. Also, loan recipients will receive a grant for 100 percent of the cost of their energy audit. Loan applications must be received by April 15. EEF is available for buildings owned by micro, small, medium, and large commercial businesses and nonprofit organizations. Applicants may receive grants to offset the cost of energy audits used to evaluate potential reductions in cost and carbon emissions. Activities eligible for EEF loans include, but are not limited to: • Energy audits. • Sealing drafts and leaks. • Insulation. • Equipment and appliance upgrades. • Lighting. • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. see next page

Previously, Grant’s carried Shurfine products. “The first thing they did was to come in and scan everything in our store. We are eliminating what they do not carry. But we will be able to carry everything that they have at the North Conway store,” said Craffey in a telephone interview from his Bayside Marina in Naples, Maine. Matt Paul of Hannaford said Tuesday that the company is looking forward to its new relationship with Grant’s. “It will be good for the customer, for the store and for us,” said Paul. “It is a pretty common arrangement where we look for good business partners — we have more than 30 stores under a similar arrangement, with most in Maine and a few in New Hampshire as well.” ••• According to former Grant’s owner Paul Taylor, 77, now of Center Conway, Grant’s was founded by the late Ervin and Margaret Grant, who operated their market out of what is now the Red Parka Steakhouse and Pub in Glen, just up from the once bustling former Glen railroad station. “Ervin opened the store there after he got out of the Army in 1946,” said Taylor, who began working for the Grants in 1956, and ended up owning the business in 1977 after Ervin and Margaret retired. “The part that is now the bar was used to sell grains, hardware, paint, a little of everything,” said Taylor this week. The Grants built the brick store up the hill in 1965, opening it as Grant’s Red and White — the same company that ironically enough has evolved into Hannaford.

That store burned in July 12, 1981, due to an electrical short in an icemaker in the backroom. The current store was rebuilt on the same footprint, reopening Dec. 9, 1981. Taylor ran the business from 1977 to 1989, after which he sold it to Associated Grocers (the Grants still owned the building). Associated Grocers leased the business to Craffey. Taylor said the Grants sold the building and nearby complex of stores to Nat Lucy, of Conway Supply, who thereafter sold it all to Craffey, the current owner. Lucy Hardware is now located on Route 16 in Intervale. In addition to Grant’s, the Grant’s complex includes Citizens Bank, MountainTop Physical Therapy and the Dollar Store. “Since Mr. Grant once bought his produce from Red and White, the precursor to Hannaford, it really is like coming full circle,” said Craffey. •••

Pictured above is Grant’s when it opened as Grant’s Red and White in 1965. That store burned in July 1981, but was rebuilt and re-opened in December 1981. Below, the original Grant’s store opened in 1946 and was located in what is now the Red Parka Steakhouse and Pub. (COURTESY OF PAUL TAYLOR)

GRAND RE-OPENING: Meanwhile, the North Conway Hannaford Supermarket and Pharmacy this week will celebrate the completion of renovations at the store. A grand opening with special promotions is set for 7 a.m. April 2, and will include free samples all day long. A “Close to Home” local vendors’ day is to be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 9. A free health screening day is set for April 30 from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. A sales flyer for the store says it has “added thousands of organic, natural, and glutenfree items” as part of the remodeling.

Cookie tour benefits local organizations Page 18 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, March 30, 2011

CONWAY — The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire-North, Angels and Elves and the Travis Roy Foundation all benefitted from efforts of local bakers and innkeepers when they were presented with donations from money raised through the sale of tickets to the Country Inns in the White Mountains 14th annual Innto-Inn Cookie Tour and Gingerbread contest. Bakers were asked to interpret the holiday theme "Twas the Night Before Christmas in the White Mountains" in gingerbread structures during the holiday event, and tour goers voted on their favorites while sampling sweet treats during the annual cookie tour. Each gingerbread house was dedicated to a non-profit organization, and first, second and third prize winners received donations from the Country Inns in the White Mountains, sponsors of the annual cookie tour. The winners of the competition were: • First place Sponsored by the Covered Bridge House, the classic gingerbread house revealed a detailed interior where "the stockings were hung by the

mantel with care" and the sleeping children and cat curled at the foot of their bed confirmed that "not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." Prize: $500 for the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire-North. Baker: Allison Wanek, daughter of innkeepers Nancy and Joe Wanek. • Second place Sponsored by the Old Red Inn at Cottages, the gingerbread stone cottage showed Santa and his elves delivering presents from his sleigh. Prize: $350.00 for Angels and Elves. Bakers: Ruth Ann Smith and Carol Taggert • Third place Sponsored by the 1785 Inn, the gingerbread represented Santa and his reindeer arriving at a log cabin in the White Mountain forest. Prize: $250 for the Travis Roy Foundation Baker: Andrea Kerr The Inn-to-Inn Cookie Tour is held each year during the second weekend of December. For more information or to view photos of the cookies featured in the 2010 tour, visit and click on the Cookie Tour icon.

Allison Wanek, daughter of innkeepers Nancy and Dan Wanek of the Covered Bridge House in Glen, and creator of the first place gingerbread, presented a $500 donation from the Country Inns in the White Mountains to Virginia Moore, Director of the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire – North (Conway Shelter).

Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center. My friend Bob Burnell, local photographer extraordinaire, invited me to stop by to see the art works in the gallery, including some of his amazing photos. The exhibit is called "Above and Below the Line" a Maine Drawing Project. It is a statewide visual arts initiative, developed by the Maine Curators Group. As part of the project, museums and galleries across Maine will offer exhibitions that focus on the process of drawing and how artists use it as a vehicle for creating diverse forms of visual expression. I thoroughly enjoyed the photographic exhibition of over one hundred new and old photos of barns in the town of Hiram. The Pace Gallery is open from 9am-1pm Monday through Friday and during most performances in the Performing Arts Center. You can also schedule an appointment by calling (207) 9359232 or by emailing alumni@fryeburgacademy. "Above and Below the Line" continues through April 29. The Fryeburg Public Library will continue to be closed on Tuesdays for the next few weeks. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but we are well on our way to cataloging every last book in the library and it takes time. Thank you for your patience. see next page

Landscaping course at Hobbs Memorial Library Thursday Don’t forget that the VFW bingo starts on Friday, April 1. The United Church of Christ held the first Ron Ashworth baked bean cook off on Saturday, March 26, with over 45-people in attendance. The tasting and judging was fierce with each contestant vying for the honor of being the best bean cooker. After much indecision the votes were counted. First place went to James Littlefield and his secret helper mom, second place went to Nancy Olmsted with help from her grandmother’s bean pot and third went to Ann Williams who did it all by herself. The cook off will benefit the Pilgrim Lodge Campership Fund in memory of Reverend Ronald Ashworth who passed away last year. In other United Church of Christ news Sunday, April 10, will be Souper Sunday beginning after the morning services. This is another chance to show your superlative cooking skills by bringing your favorite soup, chowder or stew for tasting. All entries will be judged very carefully for taste, ingredients and imagination. Organized by the Youth Group, the soup benefit will raise money for the American Cancer Society’ Relay for Life. A $5 donation is requested. It’s that time of year for egg-citment the annual Easter party of children fifth grade and younger. This event will take place on April 16 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Untied Church of Christ. There will an Easter egg hunt, crafts, games and door prizes. Refreshments are always welcome and there will be plenty of these for the children. Kids come to the church for a morning of fun. The benefit for Bryson Herlihy sponsored by the Kennett One Team One Dream will take place on April 4 beginning at 5 p.m. This event will take place at the Woodshed Restaurant in Moultonborough which has the reputation of a fine dining experience in

American fare. The restaurant is owner by chef Kirk Daniels who has won many awards for his culinary arts. Diners for the benefit can choose one of the following entrees, a prime rib (the Woodshed’s primary dish), salmon, teriyaki marinated chicken breast or a vegitiarian torte. Served with the main course will be a house salad and the flowerpot bread a popular addition to the meal. After dinner the Kennett High girl’s basketball team will hold a silent auction with items that range from gift certificates to local restaurants, gas station, local salons and in keeping with the school season a prom dress. The girls are hoping this event will raise a good amount for the Herilhy family. Invitations to the dinner and auction can be obtained at Kennett High school and Combing Attractions on Main Street in Conway. The yearly Italian dinner at the New Suncook School was a smash with a great attendance. This is the event where the fifth graders get to shine by serving as waitresses and waiters. My waiter, Sam, did a great job while serving me. Along with the dinner parents and friends had the chance to see the art exhibit done by the students. The Scholastic Book Fair put on by the adult members of PKA raised fund for the program through the sale of the books. Also that night the quilt made by Andrea Nicoletta was drawn and the winner was Caren Bridges. The quilt was reraffled and the money will go toward the new playground equipment which will serve all the students. The school PTA would like to thank all those who volunteers to help and all those who attended making it another great night for the New Suncook School. Don’t forget that beginning on March 31, the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will host a landscaping course which is open to the public. Barbara Murphy

Well, I took a trip to Spain and once more lost my wallet, or at least that’s what the emergency e-mail all my contacts received. Yep, that’s right I got hacked again. I wouldn’t mind it I was actually visiting these places but alas I was still looking at the snow in Maine. I apologize to all my contacts and thank God that they are so intelligent to realize it was a hoax. It’s such a nuisance, but from what I’ve heard it’s happening to everyone. What really angered me was they deleted or stole all my contacts including the file I have for all the organization in Lovell. With the summer months of July and August approaching I used that file to remind these organizations to get me the dates and event on their agenda so I can get them in my column in a timely manner. I would appreciate if all of these people would e-mail me so I can rebuild this file as this will help me and benefit you as Ann Williams and I share this information for my column and the town calendar. Also many of the people, who use FairPoint as their e-mail carrier, aren’t getting through to me so I suggest you contact FairPoint and ask why. Any help you can give me will be appreciated and will help me keep my column going. Thanks Norris for that delicious birthday cake, you sure do bake a great cake.

Freeman wins Bretton Woods Marathon KHS Winter Sports Awards are tomorrow –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

The Third Annual New England Ski Museum’s Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at Omni Mount Washington Resort attracted serious and recreational racers from all New England states and as far away as New Jersey and Montreal on March 12. With 251 entrants it was the biggest field ever for a fund-raiser for the New England Ski Museum. Justin Freeman, who represented the United States in the 2006 Olympics, was the repeat winner in the full marathon (40 K) race with a time of 2:02:57. Freeman was followed by two Williams College ski team members, Mark Johnson and Philip Tosteson. Emily Blackmer, a Dartmouth College skier, won the women’s marathon in 2:37:01; with Laura Dewitt of Newington, Conn., and Mary Stewart of Stowe, Vt., placing second and third, respectively. The half-marathon (20 Km) race was won by John Ogden of Landgrove, Vt. (1:04:59); Sabra Davison who races for the VTXC team out of Stowe, Vt., was the women’s winner (1:09:34). Two Stratton Mountain School racers, Nick Murphy and McKenzie Fisher were second and third in the men’s half-marathon; Davison was followed by Andrea Vogl, Shelburne, Vt., and Poppet Boswell, Strattton, Vt. Local racers included, in the 20K, Doug Armstrong, seventh; Sally Swenson, 39th (ninth woman overall and first in her age group; and Candy Armstrong, 63rd. In the 40K, Phil Lawson, of Bethlehem, was fourth; Odd-Age Bervendsen, 13th; two-time U.S. Olympian Carl Swenson, now of Portsmouth, 14th; Steve Piotrow, 21st; Nat Lucy, 22nd; Caleb Lucy, 23rd; Ron Goodwin, 32nd; Pete Swenson, now of Brekenridge, Colo., 41st; Ken Kimball, 44th; David Freedman, 46th; Jim Grahma, now of Concord, 61st. Thom Perkins and the Jackson XC timing crew provided professional timing and results. Most of the major New England ski clubs were represented, including Mt. Washington Valley Nordic, Ford Sayre, Cambridge Sports Union, Stowe Nordic, Northwest Vermont, Craftsbury Nordic, Berkshire Trails, Maine Nordic, Andover (NH) Outing Club, Gunstock Nordic, and many

more. Several college, high school and ski academy teams also sent racers to the Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon. Racers and untimed participants ranged in age from 11 to 75, and were approximately evenly divided between the full and half-marathon distances. The event was notable for taking place following a week of extremely inclement weather which the Omni Mount Washington Resort Touring Center managed by redesigning the two-loop course to make the best use of abundant snow-cover on its extensive trail network. The course featured a mass start on the scenic golf course and included some of the center’s most popular forest trails including Bridal Path, Beech Hill and Crawford Hollow. The Omni Mount Washington Resort and CNL properties hosted all participants and eighty marathon volunteers at a post-race awards banquet in the Grand Ballroom. All racers, tourers and volunteers received a free hat compliments of SWIX, CocaCola and Powerade along with goody bags that contained gifts from sponsors including the Alpine Clinic; PainCare; Skadi ski scrapers, Darn Tough socks, SkiErg ski holders, and more. Two local groups, the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center and Jackson Ski Touring Foundation contributed volunteers and homemade bread, and professional timing services respectively. Lyndon State College ski area management students helped manage the race course and a team from the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine worked with resort staff to manage the parking lot. The New England Ski Museum’s Bretton Woods Nordic Marathon at Omni Mount Washington Resort is a major fundraising event for the Ski Museum. The event’s combined contribution of financial and in-kind sponsorship along with racer entry fees, sales from event souvenirs (photos) and a commission from the proceeds of a SWIX tent sale is projected plays an important role in supporting the museum’s mission of “supporting the future of skiing’s past.” The New England Ski Museum, located in Franconia Notch State Park, is open daily through the end of ski season.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will communicate masterfully. Your word choices put others at ease. For instance, instead of saying “no problem,” which has negative connotations, you’ll say “my pleasure,” which creates good feelings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The presentation of an idea will sell it, whether the idea is a good one or not. A pleasant appearance drives the demand. You realize this and use it to your advantage. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know a number of ways to make others feel better. You will boost someone’s mood with your kind words. Afford yourself the same kindness by engaging in positive self-talk. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You like people who might be classified as “go getters” as long as what they are going to get benefits you, too. Having common interests will help you tolerate the naturally opportunistic. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be successful at selling a product or service, just as soon as you can see the product or service from the customer’s point of view. Your strongly empathic nature makes this easy for you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 30). Your year is filled with friends, pleasures and amusements that balance well with your professional and family life. Next month a hobby connects you in business. In June, you will blossom as an inspired teacher and/or artist and will be paid well for your expertise. In August, amazing news has a happy effect on your family. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 14, 49 and 18.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will make a bigger effort to try to understand where someone dear to you is coming from. Learning more about his or her interests will help you gain the insight you desire. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A new person will arouse your curiosity. A bit of casual research is in order. You’ll learn the most from a Sagittarius or Gemini who is equally intrigued with the subject. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Moods are fleeting, but e-mail is forever -- at least it has the potential to be, as once you hit that “send” button, there’s no going back. Furthermore, have a nice long think about anything you put in writing today. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll perform as an individual with all eyes on you and will gain the acceptance of your audience. This personal win will bolster your confidence and give you the motivation to continue to grow. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You prefer to do business where there is a strong sense of stability and tradition around matters of finance. You will connect with those who share your values and make a deal. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have many friends, and yet you may not get the kind of attention you need from them now. Think about the relationship you’d really like. Once you start thinking about this, you will magnetically draw it to yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sit back and relax because today will be a smooth ride. Your preparation will pay off, your good karma will come back around, and you’ll be just plain lucky.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, March 30, 2011— Page 23

Today is Wednesday, March 30, the 89th day of 2011. There are 276 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 30, 1981, President Ronald Reagan was shot and seriously injured outside a Washington, D.C., hotel by John W. Hinckley Jr. Also wounded were White House press secretary James Brady; Secret Service agent Timothy McCarthy and District of Columbia police officer Thomas Delahanty. On this date: In 1861, the element thallium was discovered by English chemist William Crookes. In 1867, U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward reached agreement with Russia to purchase the territory of Alaska for $7.2 million. In 1909, the Queensboro Bridge, linking the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Queens, opened. In 1945, the Soviet Union invaded Austria during World War II. In 1959, a narrowly divided U.S. Supreme Court, in Bartkus v. Illinois, ruled that a conviction in state court following an acquittal in federal court for the same crime did not constitute double jeopardy. In 1964, John Glenn withdrew from the Ohio race for the U.S. Senate because of injuries suffered in a fall. In 1970, the musical “Applause,” based on the movie “All About Eve,” opened on Broadway. In 1986, actor James Cagney died at his farm in Stanfordville, N.Y., at age 86. In 1991, Patricia Bowman of Jupiter, Fla., told authorities she’d been raped hours earlier by William Kennedy Smith, the nephew of Sen. Edward Kennedy, at the family’s Palm Beach estate. (Smith was acquitted at trial.) One year ago: President Barack Obama signed a single measure sealing his health care overhaul and making the government the primary lender to students by cutting banks out of the process. The world’s largest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, threw together minuscule particles racing at unheard of speeds in conditions simulating those just after the Big Bang. Today’s Birthdays: Game show host Peter Marshall is 85. Actor Richard Dysart is 82. Actor John Astin is 81. Entertainer Rolf Harris (song: “Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport”) is 81. Actor-director Warren Beatty is 74. Rock musician Graeme Edge (The Moody Blues) is 70. Rock musician Eric Clapton is 66. Actor Justin Deas (TV: “Guiding Light”) is 63. Actor Robbie Coltrane is 61. Actor Paul Reiser is 54. Rap artist MC Hammer is 48. Singer Tracy Chapman is 47. Actor Ian Ziering is 47. Singer Celine Dion is 43. Actor Mark Consuelos is 40. Actress Bahar Soomekh is 36. Actress Jessica Cauffiel is 35. Singer Norah Jones is 32.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I am in my late 30s and have been dating “Rick” for six years. The problem is his daughter, “Janet.” We used to get along, but now she hates me. She calls me awful names and says she wishes I would go away. I recently asked Rick to marry me. Now Janet says I am “desperate” and she refuses to talk to either of us. I don’t know what to say to her. I’m appalled at her attitude toward me, the language she uses and the things she’s saying about me to her friends on the Internet. She won’t listen to her dad. Her mother is encouraging her behavior and has been threatening me. I can’t get Janet to understand that her dad and I love each other, that it’s all right for a woman to ask a man to marry her and it’s not out of “desperation.” Please help. -- NOT DESPERATE IN LOUISIANA DEAR NOT DESPERATE: Toughen up. Recognize that for all of the joy Rick brings you, Janet is his extremely immature daughter and she’s part of the package. How old is the girl? She appears to have years of growing up to do. You can’t change her behavior, so go on with your life without seeking her approval. Unfortunately, nasty ex-wives are nothing new. If the ex does anything beyond “threaten” you, file a police report and let them deal with her. DEAR ABBY: Can common sense be learned or taught? Some people seem to be born with it. Others have “book smarts” but struggle with everyday common sense. I fail to grasp simple connections, and I sometimes ask

Help Wanted


questions that have obvious answers -- for someone else. I know other people who share the same problem, and I admire those who simply seem to “get” what’s happening around them. Is there any way to improve? I’m 38 and married to a man who has strengths in both areas. -- BOOKWORM IN MONTANA DEAR BOOKWORM: Nobody has everything. Your strength is your intellect. Not everyone is a good student, and it can affect their self-esteem as much or more than your worry about not having common sense. If it’s any comfort, people usually acquire common sense in the school of life. In other words, they learn from the mistakes they make. I’m sure you have done that and will continue to do so. DEAR ABBY: My 34-year-old daughter blames me for her poor penmanship. When she was a baby, she started grabbing things with her left hand. Her pediatrician advised me to force her to use her right hand. Could she have had better penmanship if she had not been forced to use her right hand? -- GUILTY MOM IN MADISON, ALA. DEAR GUILTY MOM: Probably. Your pediatrician must have been very old or very “old school.” I am also left-handed, and when I was a child, educators had stopped forcing children to write in a way that was unnatural for them. I was taught to properly hold a pencil, we practiced printing and cursive penmanship, and I am told my handwriting is beautiful.
