Former firefighter indicted on arson charges in connection with June fires

Two indicted for allegedly robbing bank customer

John Robert Colcord, 18, of Eaton, facing five felony arson charges BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN


OSSIPEE — A former Madison firefighter has been indicted on five felony-level arson charges in Carroll County Superior Court. On Jan. 6, the grand jury handed down indictments against John Robert Colcord, 18, of 21 Young Road in Eaton. An indictment means the grand jury found enough evidence to bring the case to trial.

OSSIPEE — Two men arrested in connection with the armed robbery of a TD Bank customer have been indicted in Carroll County Superior Court. see ROBBERY page 8

Colcord was indicted on three counts of class-A felony arson. Each class-A felony carries a sentence of more than seven years in prison. The class-A felony arson charges allege Colcord set fire to a farm house with an attached barn and shed at 22 Glines Hill Road in Eaton on June 26 or 27, a seasonal home at 162 Watson Hill Road in Freedom on June 27 and a seasonal cabin at 318 Page Hill Road in Tamworth on June 8. see ARSON page 8

Baseball losing its glow in Puerto Rico SAN JUAN, P.R. (NY Times) — This used to be the climax of baseball’s peak season in Puerto Rico. The storied winter league lured many of Major League Baseball’s biggest Puerto Rican stars back to the island — from Roberto Clemente and Orlando Cepeda to Roberto Alomar and Bernie Williams — and they would regularly play before tens of thousands of fans during what was otherwise their off-season. More than 250 high school students attend the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy and High School in Gurabo where days are split between classes and practice. But that scene no longer exists. Four years after being forced to cancel an entire season, the league has only four teams. And for the first time in its history, which dates to 1938, the Puerto Rican Baseball League does not have a team based in San Juan, the capital. The league’s struggles are merely the most vivid manifestation of a more profound, and surprising, phenomenon playing out here: the general decline of baseball in a place where it was long considered the national pastime, if not a religion. After decades of populating major league rosters with All-Star players at every position, Puerto Rico had only 20 players on Major League Baseball rosters on opening day last season.

Ads overwhelm the airwaves in S.C.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (NY Times) — They have been inescapable: growling baritone announcers and grainy images of sneering candidates. Mitt Romney is a corporate raider. Newt Gingrich’s politics are desperate and disgusting. Anyone who happened to be near a working television in South Carolina over the weekend was exposed to one of the most concentrated and expensive barrages of political advertising that this state has ever experienced.

With the traditional efforts of candidates now multiplied by the presence of the wellfinanced “super PACs” supporting them, political operatives outbid and outmaneuvered one another in a last-minute race to buy up what time remained on the airwaves between now and the state’s Republican presidential primary on Saturday. None would risk having their messages drowned out by those of their rivals. Want to advertise on “60 Minutes,” as

Romney did on Sunday? His campaign had to get WLTX, the CBS station here, to bump a super PAC that was actually running ads supporting him. It agreed to pay $3,000 for a 30-second slot — $100 a second, almost double the usual rate. Rick Santorum, running as a family-values social conservative, put his campaign’s money into the Hollywood machine he so often denounces, booking time on NBC during the Golden Globes and “30 Rock.”

Flexing muscle, Baghdad U.S. to force drug firms to report money paid to doctors detains U.S. contractors WASHINGTON (NY Times) — To head off medical conflicts of interest, the Obama administration is poised to require drug companies to disclose the payments they make to doctors for research, consulting, speaking, travel and entertainment. Many researchers have found evidence that such payments can influence doctors’ treatment decisions and contribute to higher costs by encouraging the use of more expensive drugs and medical devices. Consumer advocates and members of Congress say patients may

benefit from the new standards, being issued by the government under the new health care law. Federal officials said the disclosures increased the likelihood that doctors would make decisions in the best interests of patients, without regard to the doctors’ financial interests. Large numbers of doctors receive payments from drug and device companies every year — sometimes into the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars — in exchange for providing advice and giving lectures.

BAGHDAD (NY Times)— Iraqi authorities have detained a few hundred foreign contractors in recent weeks, industry officials say, including many Americans who work for the United States Embassy, in one of the first major signs of the Iraqi government’s asserting its sovereignty after the American troop withdrawal last month. The detentions have occurred largely at the airport in Baghdad and at checkpoints around the capital after the Iraqi authorities raised questions about the contractors’ documents, including visas, weapons permits and authorizations to drive certain routes. Although no formal charges have been filed, the detentions have lasted from a few hours to nearly three weeks. The crackdown comes amid other moves by the Iraqi government to take over functions that had been performed by the United States military and to claim areas of the country it had controlled.

Personal income tax ban could be added to state constitution CONCORD — New Hampshire’s historic resistance to a personal income tax would no longer be left to politicians to uphold if a proposed prohibition against the tax is enshrined in the state constitution. The House votes Wednesday on a constitutional amendment that would bar any new tax on personal income. Supporters say the amendment wouldn’t affect existing taxes but would stop lawmakers from levying new taxes directly or indirectly

on someone’s income regardless of its source. Opponents object that the proposal would handcuff future legislatures in dealing with changing economic conditions. New Hampshire is one of nine states that doesn’t tax personal income, though it taxes interest and dividends. New Hampshire and Alaska are the only states without taxes on either personal income or sales. —Courtesy of WMUR

Huntsman drops out of race, endorses Romney CHARLESTON, S.C. — Republican Jon Huntsman has dropped out of the GOP presidential race and has endorsed Mitt Romney. Huntsman said the former Massachusetts governor gives the Republican Party its best shot at defeating President Barack Obama in the November general election. After staking his candidacy on New Hampshire, Huntsman finished third in the primary there last week. He faced a likely defeat in South Caro-

lina’s primary on Saturday. Huntsman’s resume had suggested he could be a major contender for the GOP presidential nomination. But the former Utah governor and diplomat found a poor reception for his brand of moderate civility, which he had hoped would draw support from independents as well as Republican moderates. Huntsman announced his decision Monday in Myrtle Beach, S.C. —Courtesy of WMUR

Dartmouth marks 50 years since King lecture on campus BY MEGHAN PIERCE THE UNION LEADER

HANOVER — Dartmouth College’s observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day today includes Dartmouth’s 20th annual candlelight vigil in his honor and a visit from legendary high school football coach Herman Boone. “This is a particularly special year for our celebration because it marks the 50th anniversary of a lecture that Dr. King gave in 105 Dartmouth Hall titled ‘Towards Freedom,’” said Gabrielle Lucke, Dartmouth’s director of diversity training and educational programs and one of the organizers of the 2012 celebration, in a news release. “It’s also the 20th anniversary of the Dartmouth’s MLK candlelight vigil, hosted by Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, Dr. King’s brotherhood,” she said. Boone, who was portrayed by Denzel Washington in the hit 2000 movie “Remember the Titans,” is the keynote speaker for Dartmouth’s 2012 celebration of King’s life and legacy, themed “The Content of Our Character.” In 1971, Boone led the newly integrated T.C. Williams High School football team in Alexandria, Va., to the Virginia state championship.

LUNCH & DINNER Tuesday-Saturday Lunch 11-2:30 • Dinner 5-9pm Sun 5-Close • Open Mic Closed Monday Just north of the hospital s r




The now retired coach plans to talk about lessons in diversity, building and sustaining a winning teams as well as the movie based on his life. “The content of his character was thoroughly tested by the challenges he faced personally and professionally,” Lucke said. “We also felt his participation would complement Dartmouth Athletics’ Peak Performance initiative, which strives to educate our student athletes about leadership and citizenship. Hearing Coach Boone talk about character, community and teamwork will be a wonderful opportunity for students and the entire Dartmouth community.” The candlelight vigil is planned for 5 p.m. today. Participants are asked to gather on the first floor of CutterShabazz Hall. Boone is scheduled to speak in the Moore Theater at 7 p.m. Tickets are free and can be obtained from the Hopkins Center Box Office, 646-3749. The celebration of King began on Friday and is to continue until Feb. 3. A highlight of the program is the presentation of the College’s MLK Social Justice Awards on Jan. 27. A complete list of events from theatrical and dance performances, films, speeches and panel discussions is available on the Dartmouth website,

Disheartened by dysfunction at county seat To the editor: After reading the articles last week in this paper, I am disheartened by the level of dysfunction in county government. First, we have an out-of-control commissioner calling dedicated employees dishonest and laughing at her colleagues. Second, our dheriff goes off the rails acquiring three Hummers? Really? Third, the dheriff hires a prosecutor for more than what the assistant county attorneys earn. The salaries for these hard-working attorneys have long been a joke in the legal community and attempts to fairly compensate them for their education, skill and long hours were continuously unsupported by members of the Carroll County Delegation. I know Tim Morgan; he’s a great guy and does an excellent job. This is not about him. Why wouldn’t he take on a position and expect to be fairly compensated? But where is the county attorney in this process? That office used to prosecute cases for the sheriff’s office. Are they too busy with too many cases? When the end of year statistics are compiled, I hope we are told. Shame on me for actually complying with the budget process when I was in office. Foolishly, I thought I had to actually account for the money I spent. The sheriff has figured out some way to have so much extra money

in his budget that he has the ability to offer and pay for a prosecutor at a higher rate than the county assistant attorneys and to acquire Hummers. I know he said they were essentially free. How about gas, maintenance and repairs? How about the trucks already owned that were acquired for that purpose? How often do we really use the mobile command unit? Tax payers deserve full accountability and transparency in the county. Sheriff Conley should open his books and show all of us just how much money he has in that department and exactly where it is being spent. Commissioner Kenney should understand that not everyone is her enemy. She should start working collaboratively in the county’s interest. Acting as though she alone is the brightest, most knowledgeable dedicated commissioner has only resulted in her looking petulant and uninformed. Our tax burden for county services is a very small portion of our tax bill, but if it is managed without accountability it is too expensive. Commissioner Kenney, you were elected to a 4-year term, please don’t make it as miserable for our county employees as it has been this first year. Sheriff Conley, elections are coming and you will again be challenged. Robin J. Gordon Tamworth

The Republican speaker’s conduct is a tragic election day story Letter to editor: The Republican speaker for the N.H. House of Representatives William O’Brien is “out of touch” with his enthusiasm for the use of hidden cameras and the names of recently deceased New Hampshire residents, to promote”photo voter ID.” Outraged New Hampshire residents are discovering the names of recently deceased relatives used in a voting prank committed against volunteer poll workers and utilized by a group to promote strict photo voter identification. The names of the deceased are still prominently posted and the N.H. League of Women voters is challenging the ones responsible. The fraud was manufactured by an individual and website called “Veritas” to demonstrate that it could be done but that

does not prove that it has been done. Instead of defending the integrity of the N.H. primary and the victims of this prank O’Brien has taken the bait and is riding the streets of Concord shouting “photo voter ID.” The speaker’s conduct is a tragic election day story and would be removed from his position if I had a vote. I look forward to seeing the photo’s of Jamie Gemmiti in The Conway Daily Sun because they tell a story, but the photo a father watching his daughter vote for the first time at Hart’s Location under the caption, “First vote in first in Nation Primary” photographed by Tom Eastman, is the best story.

Is New Hampshire’s “retail” style of politics still relevant? There were 10 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: Is New Hampshire’s “retail” style of politics still relevant? Retail politics are the best. How lucky we are in New Hampshire that we have the first primary in our great nation. This way, anyone can meet or greet the candidates and ask questions that are of concern to them. We get to judge just how the candidates act personally and answer the questions. It’s a shame that more voters have not shown up to meet the candidates when they have come to town recently. The problem is too many who vote listen to just what the liberal media tells them, instead of taking the time to meet the candidates and look into their qualifications. The example is if they had looked into the experience and qualifications of our current president, we wouldn’t have the high unemployment or the financial mess that this country is in today. I’m not a Republican, but this time I will certainly vote for any one of the Republican candidates to get rid of Hussein Obama and save our free enterprise country. God bless America. Yes, I think it’s still relevant. But doing a lot of research and reading on the computer — and I don’t mean with Newt Gingrich — I find that Romney, although he’s from our neighboring state and he has property here and pays, taxes, I’m sure he’s a great family man, but as a businessman, the businesses that he started, he saved some jobs, but the jobs that he did save are usually with low income people who get very low wages and they get screwed on their health insurance. So, he really doesn’t care as much for people as he pretends to. I think I would much rather have Huntsman any day over Romney. Retail politics is very good and it has greatly influenced whether I voted for the person or not. A couple of good examples are when I first met Hillary Clinton, she was short but she always had a dour expression on her face, always seemed to be bitter about something. Then meeting Rosalyn Carter and Laura Bush, they both proved to be very warm, likable southern gals.

Meeting Michelle Bachman, she was absolutely beautiful in person and very God-fearing person — absolutely likable. Another person that I met was Sarah Palin, who was absolutely a knock-out to look at, and absolutely joyful to hear her speak, and she exuded a tone of much happiness. And then the only other person I met was Carol SheaPorter who came across as being very brooding, basically very unpleasant to be around, she seemed to be a very unhappy person. Meeting these people absolutely influenced whether I would vote for them or their husbands, etc. Yeah, retail politics is excellent. Absolutely, it’s very relevant that the retail style of politics keep going in New Hampshire because it gives us a real chance to question the candidates and get a real look at them. It has allowed me to shake the hand of the greatest leader that the world will ever know — Barack Hussein Obama, yeah. Only if Obama comes to the Eaton Village Store to answer my questions. This is Ralph in Eaton. Don’t be a twit. Vote for Mitt. This is Dave in North Conway. The following Tele-Talk responses were posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page: Allowing undeclared voters to vote in party primaries and constant polling ruined it before social media. Retail politics is still relevant. Many N.H. voters are well educated on issues, and unafraid to ask tough questions of candidates. What you refer to as a “debate” is a carefully-scripted media pageants, where everyone is spray tanned and groomed to perfection, and the same questions are asked every time, without any tough followups. These pageants decide for us in advance who the candidates are, and what the discussion should be. If that’s the direction by which we choose a president, we might as well just allow voters to call in at the end of the show to vote for our favorite contestant. What politicians do these days is not relevant to anything based within reality of the matters at hand, nor is it helping our country.

Columnist Bella is doing the work by speaking up To the editor: In response to Jen Bella's column "Who Are You?" published Dec. 30 in The Conway Daily Sun: Sleet is falling out of the sky at this moment. The world outside my window is full of slippery ice and it seems that nothing is working. The car won't start. The long distance telephone service won't work, my housing situation is precarious and it took me three tries to get my computer to work. These daily things sometimes seem like the proverbial straw that will break my spirit but I know the straw that really breaks my spirit is to watch terrible injustice and suffering to occur and see people shurg their shoulders in callous indifference while professing moral superiority. Jen Bella is doing the work by speaking up in such an articulate way in the local press. It is work I have been attempting to do with little success to do for most of my life — first in the civil rights movement, then the mental health care industry — which fired me for insubordination for taking on the corporate health industry world — and now my ability to be effective in my church is highly precarious because it seems to me that the protection of professional comrades is more important to the protection of ordinary people. I have always believed the Occupy Wall Street movement with the support of the church, academic and other professionals should have begun many years ago as a matter of conscience but somehow people don't act until it directly affects themselves and their families and they actually experience all the patronizing, empty words, platitudes, manipulations to stop speech and outright cruelty that has been visited on the 99 percent around the globe. So, at the moment I don't fear being fired from my church but I do fear that my conscience cannot survive within the church. I think I'm in good standing with the food pantry these days and other community volunteer activities but these are tumultuous times as they have always been when the tectonic plates of universal survival must be realigned to avoid ultimate scpegoating of others, ruination of natural resource and ultimate disaster to our civilization. And yes, Jen, as you said, dissent is absolutely necessary in a free press. For me, it has been a hard go with the newspapers. I have been writing letters, mostly in opposition to people such as Tom McLaughlin in the Bridgton News for many years now with little response or support but at least I do get printed fairly often by the Bridgton News and The Conway Daily Sun with occasional letters to the editor in the Sun Journal. I think all the local newspapers are getting better at presenting balanced views. So, in comes a new generation, with you Jen Bella, who is saying and doing exactly what I believe is and has been needed to be said in public for a very long time. As you said, non-violent dissent and protest is vital to our survival as a democracy, as a nation and even our survival on a global basis. If civilization is to continue, non-violent dissent must be as useful a tool as money is to redress inujustice. I have been attempting for months to get the Bridgton News to have a reporter come in and

write stories about people living on the edge, such as the ones you wrote about: the Greens, Joan and Tracy, Lynn and John. I listen to the same kinds of stories week after week as I do intakes for The Sweden Food pantry. I have my own to tell. Charity is a good thing but those I serve and who serve me, who are recipients of the food pantry, are more at ease when they believe we are all in these hard times together as human beings, rather than feeling that their survival must depend on their being constantly grateful at receiving a handout from the more affluent. In my opinion, the system we are now living in has not been a democracy for a very long time but rather increasingly what has been called a democracy is actually a nation owned and controlled by the rich, by corporations and by a financial sector that has felt free to gamble with our lives to increase their profits. U.S. vs. Citizens United needs a constitutional amendment to get it reversed. Affordable and universal health care, education and housing is a must. The right for people to speak up with thought about issues of justice without fear of reprisal. The Democrats have, alas, done so much capitulating to the monied class, we in the middle or the bottom of the socio-economic order are truly feeling the pain and sacrifice. It is true, all of us who got too comfortable in our consumer-oriented country to see what was really happening to our families, friends and neighbors and chose to blame the more vulnerable for their real or projected misdeeds than to see we are all in this together and all to blame. For years, in my own case, just when I thought I might be getting some positive responses for my efforts to engage in non-violent reform by using free speach and the press and even stated policies and procedures, the momentum would stop at the very moment of awareness — as if the illumination was too bright a light to shine on those who would rather have their consciences remain asleep than do anything as radical as support dissenters to the status quo. The less wealthy, whether they be poor or middle class, Republican or Democrat seem to speak language that is comprehensible to me but often they have been far too threatened and intimidated to tell their own very human stories. So, I am doing to you what I have always wished would had been done for me. I am giving you my whole hearted approval and support for the journey you are on with the Occupy Wall Street movement and all its many manifestations — which can be anything from the support for affordable health care, the relief from housing debt and foreclosure, to the sjpport for people to gather together, speak up and dissent as a nonviolent imperative for change within a democracy. I pray that you will succeed and I would do anything for you that I could to help wake people up before there is even more suffering, warfare and terrible emotional stress and conflict because some lack the courage and political will to stand up to the unbridled power of the 1 or 2 percent that have gotten control of what we thought was a government by and for the people rather than a government manipulated by the 1 percent.

Teachers granted early retirement BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Just two teachers have requested and been granted early retirement by the Conway School Board. Lassie Pratt, the guidance counselor at Kennett Middle School, and Barbara Hagman, a first-grade teacher at John Fuller School, both will retire from the district in June. The board approved Hagman's retirement request 7-0. She has been with the district since 1986. The board also approve Pratt's request, but only by a 6-1 vote (Randy Davison in the minority). Pratt has worked within the district since 1989, originally serving as a jobs coordinator for disabled students at Kennett High. She later served as a special education teacher from 1993-98 before assuming her current post as the middle school guidance counselor. Over the previous three years, 23 teachers took early retirement. The contract with the Conway Education Association teachers' union requires the board to accept three (early retirement requests), but can accept more if it chooses. "The negotiated agreement with the Conway Education Association provides for early retirement under certain conditions that require that teachers be at the top of their tracks on salary schedule, have taught at least 20 years, with 10 in Conway, and submit requests prior to Nov. 15," Carl Nelson, school superintendent, stated in his report for the the Conway School Board. "All requests for early retirement will be placed on a list in order of seniority in the Conway School District. The agreement (with the CEA) requires the board to accept at least three requests, and permits the board to accept more on a seniority basis. I recommend that the Conway School Board approve the early retirement requests to be effective at the end of the 2011-12 school year."

There is no mandatory age to retire in this district or the entire state, according to the New Hampshire Department of Education. In the contract agreement between the teachers' union and the school district, if approved for early retirement, retirees will be placed on the following schedule: Teachers ages 55-58 will receive 30 percent of teacher's last salary for a five-year period; and teachers ages 59-63 will receive 25 percent of the teacher's last salary annually until age 65. Nelson explained there was a prime reason for the large volume of requests in 2008 and 2009. "I think there is a concern over a health subsidy which the state may be changing in the near future," he said, explaining that a subsidy the state currently pays into the retirement system may no longer be funded after this year, eliminating a benefit for future retirees. According to the negotiated teachers' union and school district contract, "In recognition of a teacher's years of service to the district, the board has established the policy of providing a system of severance pay. A teacher must retire from the school district in order to receive this benefit. Teachers who opt for early retirement or who leave for employment elsewhere will not qualify for severance pay. Severance pay will be paid to the teacher on the following formula: number of years of service in the school district multiplied by three-quarter of one percent of the base salary at the time of retirement." Retirement health insurance is also mentioned in the contract, which basically says retirees with 10 years in the system will receive health insurance for themselves (not their spouses or families) equal to what active teachers get. Employees hired after June 30, 2000 must have taught in the Conway School District at least 15 years to be eligible for the retirement benefits.

Hi! My name is Shadow Shadow is a Lab mix who had come to us from another shelter. He would do best in a home where there is a more sedate atmosphere, as opposed to an active household, where he may get a bit overwhelmed. Shadow is a bit timid around smaller children, so he should be placed in a home where there are teenaged children or grown. He is a sweet boy who would love to find a home where he can relax, and find the security he is so desperately seeking.

OSSIPEE – County commissioners have awarded a contract for installation of wood pellet boilers for the new nursing home. Last Monday, the commission voted 2-1 to award the $375,000 contract to Bonnette, Page, and Stone, of Laconia. Commissioner Asha Kenney voted in the minority because she felt the commission should try harder to find lower bids. BPS was the only company to bid. "It think it is way too high," said Kenney of the bid from BPS. Currently, the new nursing home, Mountain View Community, is using a propane heating system. Mountain View Community opened in September. The commission has been criticized for failing to advertise the installation job sufficiently to attract more interest. The commission contacted five companies about the job. On Dec. 28, critics including Rep. David Babson (R-Ossipee) convinced the commission to advertise the job in a trade publication and local newspapers. More bids were due on Jan. 4 but none were received. "Nobody has called," said commission chairman David Sorensen. "All they had to do was call or show some interest." The two pellet boilers will be installed in the old nursing home and the heat will piped into the the new nursing home. BPS added $75,000 to its original bid because the project is subject to the Davis Bacon Act, which pertains to projects that use federal money. The pellet boilers and the piping were paid for with federal grants. Commissioner Dorothy Solomon amended the motion to say less could be spent if the county can get a waiver from the Davis Bacon Act. The installation may take two or three months, said Sorensen.

Eagles top the Toppers in finals rematch 5-0; still undefeated BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Kennett High got a mild measure of revenge Saturday night in a rematch of the 2011 Division III finals with Somersworth on the road, winning 5-0. The Toppers had won the previous four encounters, including the one a mere 308 days ago at the Verizon Center in Manchester, 8-3, to cap off an undefeated season and spool Kennett’s bid for a third straight state

championship. This time around it was all KHS on Saturday, who put together a total team effort to improve to 6-0 in Division III. “It was another real solid defensive effort,” Michael Lane, Eagles’ head coach, said. “The kids came ready to play. …It’s been over two years since we last beat them so it was nice to get the monkey off our backs.” Goalie John Bishop recorded his league-leading fourth shutout of the season with 16 saves while his defense

built a fortress in front of the net. “Defensively we continue to play really well,” Lane said. “Coach (Justin) Frechette has been working hard on our defense and it shows every night. All five defensemen (Matt Kelly, Chris King, Dan Rivera, Dane Rivera and Robert Moody) have real good attitudes. I don’t think there’s a defenseman in the league playing better than Matt Kelly at the moment — he’s been lights out. Chris and Dan have both just really stepped their games up this season.

Dan gives us a physical presence on the ice while Chris has made such a smooth transition to defense from forward in less than two years. Dane and Robby are the younger guys and they’re getting better and better. I’m really happy with the defense at this point.” Lane said the Eagles came out flying Saturday and their uptempo play wore the Toppers, who have just 14 players, down quickly. see HOCKEY page 17


KHS gaining in confidence but falls to Berlin

Kennett High’s Seth Davison takes the ball strong to the hoop agaisnt Berlin.


CONWAY — Usually there aren’t a lot of positives in a 22 point loss, but Kennett High Boys Basketball Coach Steve Cote saw a number of things his club can build on following a 78-56 loss at home to undefeated Berlin Tuesday.

The Eagles played the Division III leaders essentially even in the first half and if your throw out a 15-0 Mountaineers run to open the first four minutes of the third quarter, KHS learned it can play with a quality team. “You hate to say a 22 point loss is significantly better,” Cote said, “but I


think we gained a lot more confidence from being in a game like this against one of the premier teams in the state. The first half was very exciting outside of the last 1:20 of the second quarter when we turned a one-point see BASKETBALL page 17

CONWAY — The Kennett High ski jumping team finished third in its second straight meet last Wednesday, but Chip Henry’s Flight Squad is gaining on the field finishing just 1.5 points out of the second spot. For the second consecutive time Proctor Academy served as host for the meet. Lebanon was originally slated to entertain but a lack of snow moved the event. The Eagles finished third out of eight schools on the evening. Plymouth took top honors for the second week in a row with 370 points followed by Hopkinton, 359.5; Kennett, 358; Hanover, 345.5; Sunapee, 331; Concord, 320.5; Merrimack Valley, 100; Bishop Brady, 90.5. The previous week, Plymouth beat Kennett by 28 points. Henry was pleased to see the gap trimmed to just 12 points on Wednesday. Matthew Doyle, of Merrimack Valley, won the meet with a best twoout-of-three jump score of 132.5 points. Sam Shapiro, of Hanover, was second, 129.5, while Kevin Parsons, of Sunapee, rounded out the top three, 128.5. The trio finished in the same order the prior week. Kennett was led by Ben Emery, who finished eighth on the night with a score of 105.5 points. He was followed by teammates Torin LaLiberte, ninth, 101.5; Aidan Laracy, 14th, 95; Zack Cromwell, 15th, 94.5; Madi Doucette, 20th, 92.5; Liam Divine, 23rd, 90.5; Sam Sires, 24th, 88.5; Mackenzie Lambert, 26th, 88; and Nick Preece, 33rd, 80. There were 64 jumpers in the meet. Next up for Eagles is a scheduled trip to Oak Hill in Hanover this Friday night where they are scheduled to compete against the saem group of schools. Kennett will host the State Meet on Feb. 17 and the final regular season meet on Feb. 10. It will make the first time that the Eagles have hosted the championshios in the modern jumping era.

Raiders break the ice get first hoop victory BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy boys’ basketball team broke the ice on Tuesday night at home with their first win of the year against Freeport, and then almost followed that up with an upset home win over Cape Elizabeth, who defeated the Raiders by 25 points earlier in the year. The Raiders jumped out early and did not look back during a convincing 63-36 win over Freeport. On Saturday the Raiders almost took down Cape Elizabeth, but they lost a hard fought defensive contest 40-37. The Raiders arrived at the gym ready on Tuesday and pulled out to a 17-8 in first quarter lead. The boys continued building a lead in the second quarter and went into the locker room up 35-15 at half. Coach Sedge Saunders commented on the keys to the early lead. “We thought we could pressure them,” he said. “We went with our diamond press, and the kids were hustling like crazy. Even when Freeport thought they broke the press, we got tips from behind and broke up passes. Defensively, we did a real nice job at recognizing who their scorers were and getting to them. We pressured the ball and communicated.” The defensive pressure translated into points as the Raiders got a lot of easy buckets off turnovers and steals. Bright Amoako transitioned the Raiders into offense off the turnovers nicely and scored eight points to lead the Raiders in the second quarter. The easy buckets also loosened up the Raiders and they started hitting their outside shots as well. If Coach Saunders feared that the Raiders might let down with a lead, whatever he said at the half worked. They came out of the locker room and outscored the Falcons 18-11 to completely put the game away and take a 53-26 third quarter lead. Mike Costa and Walker Mallory scored 14 and 11 points respectively. Amoako provided an outstanding all-around game with 14 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, and 4 steals, and he only played about two and a half quarters. Saunders thought Tyler Saunders played a key role in the game. “He did a real nice job defensively,” he said. “He disrupted their offense with four steals. He went full and half court pressure on the ball.” Entering Saturday’s contest against Cape, Saunders felt that the Raiders could wear them down. “They had a big game at Yarmouth the night before so we thought that they might be tired. We thought we could steal one from them.” Fryeburg played nervous in the first quarter and turned the ball over against Cape’s outstanding half court man-to-man defense. The Raiders, however, hung in the game using their full court defensive pressure. Both teams’ offense came from their defense. Saunders noted the first period offensive struggles, “ We had some bad turnovers, but we hung in there because we were able to pressure them in the full court. They turned the ball over and we got some points, but we struggled against their half court

man and they really focused on keeping Amoako out of the paint.” The Raiders trailed 13-10 after the first frame and 23-21 at half. They gave a little ground in the third quarter to trail 33-29 heading into the fourth. Saunders watched as the lead switched hands on several occasions in the third quarter. “It was a back and forth game – the whole game,” he said. “It came down to the little things – every rebound, every loose ball. We were a little sloppy early and that came back to haunt us.” A key possession came at the end of the third quarter. Down by one, the Raiders held for the last shot at the end of the third quarter hoping to take a lead into the fourth quarter. Amoako took the ball to the paint with about seven seconds on the clock and missed. A Cape player gathered the rebound and launched a three quarter court shot that snapped the net giving Cape a four point shot. Instead of entering the final quarter up one, the Raiders were down four. The shift in momentum did not destroy the Raiders. They opened the fourth quarter by scoring the first six points to take a 35-33 lead despite being a little deflated. Later, tied 37-37 with about two minutes left, Caper Chris Robicheaw then drained a three pointer to give Cape a 40-37 lead. With about a minute to go the Capers decided to try to take time off the clock and force the Raiders to foul. With only one team foul, the Raiders had to foul six times to get Cape to the line. With 13 seconds left the Raiders finally got Cape to the line where they missed a one and one that the Raiders rebounded. Rather than let the Raiders take a three-point shot to tie, Cape decided to foul. Saunders told his players to shoot the ball when fouled so they would get three foul shots. The Raiders failed to get a shot off, but Saunders felt that Amoako was fouled at one point, but they didn’t blow the whistle. Saunders was once again pleased with the Raiders effort. “This was a big improvement from the last time we played them,” he said. “That would have really turned our season around. Unfortunately we fell a little bit short. We had some bad turnovers early, the kid hit the three quarter court shot, and we still had a chance. It was a heartbreaker. “We haven’t been in a lot of close games, so the execution is difficult,” Saunders added. “We had a tight one with Greely and now Cape, so hopefully down the road we will execute a little better. We got good contributions from a lot of people.” Saunders is confident in the Raiders heading forward. They have the softest part of their schedule ahead and they are playing better than at any point this year. “It was nice to see our pressure rattled Cape,” he said. “Defensively we are in good shape, we just need to find ways to score. The kids are playing well. We are getting some confidence and people know their roles and are comfortable.”

KHS girls finally return to The Nest, host Berlin tonight BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — After being away from The Nest for the almost a month, the Kennett High girls basketball team will finally play it’s first home game of the New Year today. The Eagles, who last played at home Dec. 26, will host Berlin (1-8 in Division III) at 6:30 p.m. “We’re looking forward to finally playing again,” Larry Meader, Eagles’ head coach, said. “We started the season with eight games in 16 days and now it’s been almost a complete

opposite with just two games in the past 18 days. It’ll be nice to be at home at long last.” The Eagles improved to 3-3 in Division II last week with a comfortable 56-11 victory on the road at Manchester West on Tuesday. In the game, KHS committed a season-low 12 turnovers and 11 Eagles saw playing time in at least three quarters as Meader ran a revolving door of substitutes getting younger players valuable playing time. Kennett led 21-6 after the opening eight minutes, but had a slug-

gish second quarter, scoring just four points to lead 25-8 at the half. “Their play in the second quarter led to a rough halftime speech,” Meader said, smiling. “It worked because the girls put together a pretty complete second half. What was nice was we really started to run the offense the way we wanted to and made it work.” Kennett carried a 36-11 cushion into the fourth quarter and actually held the Blue Knights scoreless over the final 11 minutes of play. One of the keys to KHS victory was a dominating night in the rebounding

department. The Eagles pulled down 58 rebounds, including a season-best 27 on the offensive end. Senior Casey Blakely led eight Eagles in the scorebook with 13 points, she also pulled down seven rebounds. Jesse Wagner added 10 points; Lauren Kidder, who appears fully recovered from an ankle injury, had 8; Lauren White, 7; Jordan Murphy, 7; Kaitlin “Shaq” Taylor, 5; Kaylin Samia, 4; and Maddie Graves, 2. Following today’s contest with Berlin, the Eagles will travel to Bishop Brady (4-3) on Friday.

Raiders gain a measure of revenge at Cape Elizabeth with victory BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy girls basketball team continued its penchant for close games this week with a two-point loss at Freeport on Tuesday and a nine-point win at Cape on Friday to pull to 3-7 on the season. Tuesday, the Raiders fell behind 13-6 in the first quarter against Freeport, but they returned favor in the second quarter, outscoring Freeport 13-6 to pull to a 19-19 halftime tie. In a game that featured one team or the other dominating each quarter, the Raiders were outscored 17-5 in the third quarter.

Trailing 36-24 entering the final frame, the Raiders roared back with Maggie McConkey hitting two three pointers in the last two minutes to pull within two points at the buzzer, but they could not gain the lead. Skye Dole had 16 points for Fryeburg and Maggie McConkey scored 14 points. Kendra Fox chipped in 9. In another close game on Saturday, the Raiders trailed Cape 12-10 after one. Coach Dan Leland credited the Cape defense for the Raiders’ offensive woes. “Cape’s pressure forced a sloppy first quarter,” he said. The Raiders led 20-18 with seconds

Learn to Curl on Saturday from 6 to 8 p.m. CONWAY — The Mount Washington Valley Curling Club will host its second Learn to Curl event this Saturday at Ham Ice Arena in Conway Village from 6 to 8 p.m. There is no cost to come out and try the sport, which is open to all ages and abilities. Eight teams participated in the fall league season that began in October and culminate in early December with matches most Saturday nights. The winter league will play every Saturday for eight weeks, beginning Feb. 4. Cost for memberships to the MWV Curling Club vary. A full membership is $120 for people who want to curl weekly. A trial membership is $60, which entitles a player to curl the first half of the season to see if he or she like it. A third option is a social membership, which costs $75 and allows a player to take to the sheet two times

a month. A $15 fee is charged each week for ice time. The MWV Curling Club will be featured on WMUR’s popular Chronicle program in the near future. Taping for the show is this Thursday. Curling has taken off here in the community. A board of directors was created within two weeks and the MWV Curling Club was born by May 1. The board of directors and members raised $10,000 with the help of a matching grant from the Gibson Woodbury Foundation all within three months, and acquired three sets of curling stones, a full complement of brooms and sliders, and hacks for the curling sheets — in short, everything needed to curl. For curling updates, call the Ham Ice Arena at 447-5886 or MWV Curling Club on Facebook or its new website (

left in the first half, but a Cape three pointer at the buzzer gave the Capers their first lead of the game. Although the Raiders surrendered the lead, Leland felt better about their play in the second quarter. “We settled down after the first quarter and played better. We held on against Cape’s uptempo pressure,” he said. Two minutes into the third quarter Kendra Fox hit a three from the corner to regain the lead for Fryeburg 25-24, and although Cape battled back a couple of times, the Raiders never surrendered the lead. The Raiders took a 29-26 lead after three quarters and then started to pull away in the fourth quarter. In an attempt to get back in the game late in the fourth quarter, the Capers started fouling, but the Raiders capitalized from the charity stripe hitting 13 of their 15 attempts in the from preceding page

The tourney honors the memory of Dore, the late assistant Ham Arena director who died from cancer in 2005 at the age of 55. “The tourney was previously the Wild Women Classic, and we named it after Dave as we wanted to honor him, so we renamed it just before he died,” said Daly, who is president of the Mount Washington Valley Women’s Hockey Association. “The Dore Family was on hand throughout the weekend to watch this event being held in Dave’s name. His grandchildren were on the ice Sunday for a ceremonial puck drop,” added Daly. A plaque in the arena is dedicated to Dore. It reads: “Dave Dore, from the beginning a friend and believer.” “From the beginning, David made

fourth quarter and 8 of 10 in the final minute of the game. Dole and McConkey combined for 11 of the 13 made free throws in the fourth quarter. Leland enjoyed that the Raiders hit their free throws. “We were 18-22 from the line for the game,” he said. “We have been working on shooting while tired in practice after all full court drills, and the practice is paying off. Games are certainly won and lost on the line, and we proved that tonight.” Like many Patriots fans, Leland would have liked to have had Saturday night free, but after the Raiders pulled off an impressive win over Cape, who beat them earlier in the year, he commented, “I was okay with missing the Pats game after that.” Dole finished with 15 points 8 rebounds, and Maggie McConkey notched 10 points 4 assists to lead the Raiders. Kendra Fox added 8. sure that women’s hockey got off on the right foot,” said Ham executive director Darrell Umlah of his late friend. Dore’s Boston University No. 9 jersey hangs form the rafters at the Ham, alongside others once worn by the late Roland Chabot, known as “Mr. Hockey” in his years as a fixture in the pro shop at Berlin’s Notre Dame Ice Arena; the late Alex Mitchell, an avid Ham youth ice hockey player, and Lumpa Brett, a former hockey star at the Ham and longtime local youth sports supporter. The Ham is now home to four women’s hockey teams who skate in a league at the Ham Monday nights. In addition, many women play on Thursday nights in a co-ed league at the Ham. For further information, call the Ham Arena at 447-5886.

HOCKEY from page 14

KHS took the lead for good just 2:12 into the first period with Justin Munck lighting the lamp when he tucked home the rebound of a Nick Massa shot. Kelly also assisted on the goal. The boys from Conway doubled their pleasure two and a half minutes later with Connor Todd scoring from Kevin Murphy and Dillon Smith. At 9:09 of the first, Murphy made it 3-0 from Todd to close out the first period scoring. Kennett spent a fair amount of time in the penalty box on the night, but successfully killed off four in the first period and five in the second. “Our penalty kill was very good,” Lane said. “There weren’t a lot of undisciplined penalties, we were simply being aggressive and physical which I can live with.” Kennett sealed the victory with a pair of third period goals. Anthony LaRusso scored 2:57 into the frame from Munck and then Munck scored from Cody Richard and Massa at 8:55. “Justin and that line (Richard and Massa) are working real hard,” Lane said. “They’re starting to click and Justin is such a good finisher.” Lane said Bishop was tested a couple of times, but was equal to the challenge on every occasion. Sometimes you just have to play the game and hope no one gets hurt. Such was the case Wednesday when Kenentt took to the Ham Arena ice to play a struggling Laconia-Winnisquam club. The Eagles won the first meeting 12-0 last month in a game in which the boys from Conway didn’t take shot in the final 22 minutes. Wednesday was an opportunity for the younger Eagles to get plenty BASKETBALL from page 14

game into a five-point deficit due to a couple of turnovers. “…The first half for us was all about identifying who Berlin’s scorers were rebounding and protecting the basketball,” he added. We had a couple of unfortunate turnovers late in the half and you can’t do that against a team like Berlin that’s so offensively proficient.” Kennett (0-5 in Division II) played Berlin (8-0 in Division III and has beaten every opponent except one by at least 26 points prior to Tuesday) to a 16-16 deadlock in the first quarter. The late miscues helped the visitors from north of Pinkham Notch carry a 37-31 lead into the locker room at the intermission. Berlin scored the first 15 points to open the third quarter as Kennett went cold from the field and were unable to get on the offensive glass like it did it the opening 16 minutes. Senior Seth Davison stopped the Mountaineers run with a threepointer. Berlin went on to lead 60-41 after three periods. ‘Unfortunately,” Cote said, “we came out very sluggish to start the third period. Berlin dominated the boards for the first four and a half minutes and we let things get away from us. “…We came away feeling very confident that we could compete with an elite team,” he added. “Aside from five

of playing time which should help KHS in terms of depth later in the season. “It was nice to finally play at home,” Lane said, “and it was nice to get a win and nice to get the younger guys lots of ice time. This game was a good opportunity for the younger kids, plus we were able to rest some of the upperclassmen who played a lot Tuesday (in a 5-3 win at Bedford in a nonleague matchup). Richard opened the scoring two minutes into the game with assists going to Munck and Massa. Three minutes later, Munck lit the lamp with the asset going to Moody, a freshman, who finished with a careerhigh four points. Gabe Lee extended Kennett’s lead to 3-0 when he converted a pas from LaRusso and Moody. L/W got on the scoreboard with 3:46 to play in the first period, scoring a power-play goal. Kennett answered quickly with Smith finding the back of the net from Murphy and Todd. The Eagles ran their lead to 5-1 just 90 seconds into the second period when defenseman King scored with assists going to Todd and Smith. KHS added one more tally in the second period, courtesy of Moody, who took a feed from Murphy and made no mistake. Kennett added four goals in the third period: Lee from Gallo and Moody; Todd shorthanded; Massa from Richard; and Nathaniel Swift from LaRusso. Freshman goalies Josh Kondrat and Bobby Davis shared the duties in net. Kondrat made six saves while Davis had two stops. The Eagles will open next week at home against Kearsarge on Monday at 5:20 p.m. They beat the Cougars 8-0 in North Sutton on Jan. 7. bad minutes (between the second and third quarters), we played well. … Berlin plays a very aggressive, overplaying help defense. With Berlin you get nothing fancy, they’re a blue collar, hardworking team. Berlin had been giving up only 38 points per game which shows we shot well.” Berlin’s All State forward Curtis Arsenault led all scorers with 28 points while Sam Aldrich chipped in with 19. “They did their damage,” Cote said. “We knew who they were and what they were going to do but they still took care of business. …One thing we didn’t do well was get to the free throw line. We only took five foul shots all night. I look at that as we were perimeter-oriented — we shot the ball at a high rate — but we really need to get to the foul line 25-30 times a night.” Kennett was led offensively by Robert Starkey, who had 16 points, including four three-pointers. “Robert id a fine job of catching the ball and shooting in rhythm,” Cote said. Also scoring for the Eagles were Ryan Vajentic, 7; Michael Lautenschlager, 6; Alex Milford, 6; Brandon DiLucchio, 5; Davison, 5; Jordan Stocker, 4; Scott Conner, 4; and Dustin Stewart, 2. Kennett and Berlin will lock up again on the hardwood today in Berlin. The Eagles are also scheduled to host Bishop Brady this Friday at 6:30 p.m.

‘Sound of Music’ at Inn at Crystal Lake’s opera night

There are some petitions at the Eaton Village Store requiring signatures of Eaton townspeople for the warrant articles for service organizations for our Town Meeting in March. Please sign these right away. Even if you’re not sure about one, sign it now and then you still get to vote at Town Meeting. These organizations help everyone in the valley and in our town as well, and they deserve to be brought before the voters. When you stop by EVS for breakfast, lunch, or to pick up your mail, just sign them on the wall by the Post Office window. Many thanks from all the organizers involved. I cannot believe I didn’t remind people to vote last week in the Primary. What was I thinking? It is our given right in this free country to be able to vote and we should all exercise that right. We are so lucky that we have these freedoms that so many other countries do not have. The first night at the opera at the Inn at Crystal Lake is coming up soon. On Thursday, Jan. 26, they will be presenting Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Sound of Music.” Some critics accuse this musical of being too “saccharine” but any story that is set on the eve of World War II definitely has some serious things going on. The music is so lovely and well-known to everyone, like “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss” and “Climb Every Mountain.” The movie, starring Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer and Eleanor Parker, was beautiful and roman-

tic, despite the threat of the war. The cost is $55 per person includes discussions, demonstrations, and a four-course dinner that complements the opera, plus a glass of wine. It does not cover other alcoholic beverages, tax, or gratuity.

Almost everyone has heard of the Common Man franchise with restaurants galore, stores, theaters, and inns with spas. Well, the mastermind behind all this is one Alex Ray, who graduated from Kennett High School with me. At the end of 2011, the C-Man turned 40. I can hardly believe what Alex and his wonderful staff have created all over New Hampshire. I just talked to Alex last week and I congratulated him on his huge success. If you have never tried one of the Common Man eateries, do yourself a favor and stop in. Delicious food, wonderful ambiance, super friendly staff. I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. I know the supermarkets were very busy on Saturday. Please stop for a moment and remember what kind of world Martin Luther King wanted for all of us, a world of peace and harmony among all people. I realize that is a lofty goal, but each of us can make a difference in a small way every day. Be kind, be courteous, be generous, be caring, be loving&hellip;be a good friend.

Giguere accepted at White Mountains Community College

TAMWORTH,NH – The office of Student Affairs at White Mountains Community College recently announced that Chelsea L Giguere has been accepted in the Health Science Technology program for the academic year 2012. Giguere is a 2010 graduate of Kennett High School. She participated in chorus. Currently, Giguere is employed at N.H. National Guard in Manchester as a combat medic. She is the daughter of James Giguere. from preceding page

This month’s featured performers will be Jane Wilcox-Hively and Jonathan Hively. For many locals Jane’s harp playing and singing is a familiar pleasure. Her specialization in Scottish and Celtic traditional songs have brought smiles and tapping feet into Effingham on numerous occasions. Now that it appears that winter has finally arrived this coming Thursday night’s writer’s night will be a wonderful chance for you to get out and enjoy some great music, some wonderful writing and a chance to display your talents or just sit and appreciate that of others. The selectmen will be holding a public informational meeting concerning the possible acceptance of a grant to provided Effingham with a new wood pellet boiler on Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. A bit of public input on this issue would be a good idea. As with any issue there are various ways to look at it. This meeting will be your chance to both learn and have your say. As stated before whether or not the municipal offices need a new heating system is not the question, but what kind of system is. The first in a series of pleas: We are approaching that time of year when Efffinghamtonians will be electing various town officers and board members. But to have people to vote for we need people to run. Sign up time for running for election is approaching, please start to consider if there isn’t some way you could see too placing your name on a ballot. The double touch: Last week the fire department’s need for its own collection of smaller hand, electrical and automotive tools was mentioned. A degree of humor was inserted into the ‘style’ of the request but please know that the request arose from a real need. There may be those out there who read what was said and figured, “Hey I have an old this or that in the basement, maybe I’ll drop it off.” Well, all humor aside the department can still use it so drag it out and hand it over. You can call 539-4964 if you want to donate something and are un-sure how to go about it.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll catch your loved ones doing something right and give spontaneous and enthusiastic praise. You’ll make someone happy while paving the way for the stellar results in the future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you are tenacious enough, you will have a breakthrough today. If the first or second attempt fails, you’ll use what you learn, adjust the plan and go for round three. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The more people you know, the luckier you’ll be. Smile and say “Hi.” Also, ask friends to introduce you to the people they know. New contacts will be the catalyst for a windfall or romance. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No one develops alone. You’ll enjoy letting others know what you’ve learned from them. And you’ll continue to let new connections help launch and support your growth. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Look for the good news hidden in the bad. Maybe it will only amount to a speck of sunshine, but that’s enough to illuminate other pieces of goodness and change the way everyone sees things. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 17). Your personal life blossoms as you assert yourself. Refuse to be put on the spot. Give yourself plenty of time and space to make major decisions. You’ll advance projects having to do with communication and closing the gaps between people. March features domestic upgrades. You’ll win money in June. Cancer and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 12, 22, 6 and 19.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may feel out of sync with the people around you. You like people, but social connections are not your main source of happiness right now. Solitude has a way of centering you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you expect yourself to be an expert right out of the gate, you’ll only set yourself up for disappointment. False starts and reversed directions are a key part of your learning process. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be critical to the success of a team. You will be motivated by intangible rewards. Being recognized for something you do well may be an even better reward of your efforts than money. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be at ease when considering other people’s viewpoints, a sign of maturity and sophistication that won’t go unnoticed by equally mature and sophisticated individuals. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A touch of restlessness might put you in a shopping mood, although it’s not a great time for it. You will be much better off consolidating what you have instead of buying more. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The group won’t seem to know what they are doing, but the collective intelligence of the group is higher than you think. Besides, going solo may be a good way to get lost today. So stick together. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In order to stay abreast of the competition, you’ll figure out what your competitors are doing and why. It’s also a good time to seek and implement new technologies for improving efficiency and output.

Saturday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, January 17, 2012— Page 23

Today is Tuesday, Jan. 17, the 17th day of 2012. There are 349 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 17, 1962, ten former winners of rigged TV quiz shows, including Charles Van Doren, pleaded guilty in New York to perjury, admitting they’d lied under oath when they denied being given answers in advance. (All received suspended sentences.) On this date: In 1562, French Protestants were recognized under the Edict of St. Germain. In 1893, the 19th president of the United States, Rutherford B. Hayes, died in Fremont, Ohio, at age 70. Hawaii’s monarchy was overthrown as a group of businessmen and sugar planters forced Queen Lili’uokalani to abdicate. In 1917, the United States paid Denmark $25 million for the Virgin Islands. In 1929, the cartoon character Popeye the Sailor made his debut in the “Thimble Theatre” comic strip. In 1945, Soviet and Polish forces liberated Warsaw during World War II; Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg, credited with saving tens of thousands of Jews, disappeared in Hungary while in Soviet custody. In 1950, the Great Brink’s Robbery took place as seven masked men held up a Brink’s garage in Boston, stealing $1.2 million in cash and $1.5 million in checks and money orders. (Although the entire gang was caught, only part of the loot was recovered.) In 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower delivered his farewell address in which he warned against “the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.” In 1971, the Baltimore Colts defeated the Dallas Cowboys 16-13 in Super Bowl V, played at the Orange Bowl in Miami. In 1989, five children were shot to death at the Cleveland Elementary School in Stockton, Calif., by a drifter, Patrick Purdy, who then killed himself. In 1994, a 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck Southern California, killing at least 72 people. In 1995, more than 6,000 people were killed when an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 devastated the city of Kobe (koh-bay), Japan. One year ago: Apple Inc. announced that its CEO, Steve Jobs, was taking his second medical leave of absence in two years. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Betty White is 90. Hairdresser Vidal Sassoon is 84. Actor James Earl Jones is 81. Talk show host Maury Povich is 73. International Boxing Hall of Famer Muhammad Ali is 70. Pop singer Chris Montez is 70. Rhythm-and-blues singer William Hart is 67. Rock musician Mick Taylor is 64. Rhythmand-blues singer Sheila Hutchinson is 59. Singer Steve Earle is 57. Singer Paul Young is 56. Actor-comedian Steve Harvey is 55. Singer Susanna Hoffs is 53. Actor-comedian Jim Carrey is 50. First Lady Michelle Obama is 48. Actor Joshua Malina is 46. Singer Shabba Ranks is 46. Rock musician Jon Wysocki is 44. Actor Naveen Andrews is 43. Rapper Kid Rock is 41. Actor Freddy Rodriguez is 37. Actress Zooey Deschanel is 32. Singer Ray J is 31. Country singer Amanda Wilkinson is 30.

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m 23, the only child of a controlling, paranoid, hermit-like and hyper-religious mother and a peaceloving, passive father. I graduated from college last year. Shortly after, my boyfriend and I accepted dream jobs in the same town several hours away from my parents. Mom was appalled. She “warned” me that I wouldn’t last and would come home. Instead, I have embraced my new city and job. Mom is at her wits’ end. When I mentioned that my boyfriend had recorded a movie for me, she said he was controlling me via technology. If I tell her about a project I initiated at work, she says my employer is taking advantage of me. Mom pays for a landline in my apartment that I don’t want, but she insists because she’s convinced that cellphones cause cancer. She calls me constantly, and if I don’t answer she leaves frantic messages about how “disrespectful” I am, and how she and Dad are “praying for my soul.” This has gotten out of control. I try talking to her, but she won’t listen and laughs at the idea of counseling. She says it’s her “job” to tell me what to do. My father agrees that her behavior and approach are wrong, but says she has good intentions and I need to “work with her.” Abby, I don’t know what to do. She’s becoming increasingly controlling and worried about my soul. I’m worried that my distance is affecting her health. Some advice, please! -- WANTS A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH MOM DEAR WANTS: If you return home because you’re afraid having moved away and asserting your independence is negatively affecting your mother’s health, you will never have a life of your own. Because she laughs at the idea of counseling

doesn’t mean that YOU shouldn’t get some in order to help you separate yourself from her constant efforts to manipulate you. Her dependence on you is not normal. That’s why you should enlist the help of a mental health professional. It will give you some insight in how to deal with her. If you try to “work with her” without that help, she will suck you in and you will never be free. DEAR ABBY: I have very nice neighbors who believe in leaving the wild and natural growth on their property. They have posted a sign that claims it to be a “certified natural habitat.” They never weed or cut anything back. At first, it was cared for, but now it has become an eyesore, and people who visit our house have made comments. I have tried to grow border plants to hide the mess, but nothing seems to help. I believe it affects the value of our home. My husband doesn’t want me to say anything for fear of hurting their feelings. They’re nice people, but we don’t live in a rural area where this might be more acceptable. Have you any suggestions? -- THORN IN OUR SIDE DEAR THORN: Yes. Who certified your neighbors’ yard as a “natural habitat”? The city? If so, call City Hall and find out if their yard still qualifies. What you have described may be a fire hazard, so some investigation may be in order. If there is a homeowners association in your neighborhood, it should also be contacted to ensure their house is in compliance with the codes, covenants and restrictions. If necessary, someone who is close to these neighbors should volunteer to “help” them with their yard. A natural landscape can be beautiful, but only if it’s properly maintained.
