Etta James dies at 73

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– DIGEST––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––




(NY Times) — Etta James, whose powerful, versatile and emotionally direct voice could enliven the raunchiest blues as well as the subtlest love songs, most indelibly in her signature hit, “At Last,” died Friday morning in Riverside, Calif. She was 73. Her manager, Lupe De Leon, said that the cause was complications of leukemia. Ms. James, who died at Riverside Community Hospital, had been undergoing treatment for some time for a number of conditions, including leukemia and dementia. She also lived in Riverside. James was not easy to pigeonhole. She is most often referred to as a rhythm and blues singer, and that is how she made her name in the 1950s with records like “Good Rockin’ Daddy.” She is in both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Blues Hall of Fame. She was also comfortable, and convincing, singing pop standards, as she did in 1961 with “At Last,” which was written in 1941 and originally recorded by Glenn Miller’s orchestra. And among her four Grammy Awards (including a lifetimeachievement honor in 2003) was one for best jazz vocal performance, which she won in 1995 for the album “Mystery Lady: Songs of Billie Holiday.” Regardless of how she was categorized, she was admired.

I sing the songs that people need to hear.” —Etta James

South Carolina fray upsets a smooth path for Romney

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (NY Times) — When Mitt Romney arrived in this critical primary state nine days ago credited with wins in Iowa and New Hampshire and momentum supposedly on his side, he seemed to be on a smooth path to the Republican nomination. But with Newt Gingrich using two muscular debate performances to inject himself back into the fray, Rick San-

torum claiming victory in the Iowa caucuses after a recount and voters in this conservative state apparently still in flux in the hours before the primary, Romney’s senior strategist offered a grim assessment on Friday: Romney could lose. In what appeared to be a broad campaign effort to dampen expectations before the primary, Romney said in a short press briefing here, “I said from

the very beginning that South Carolina is an uphill battle for a guy from Massachusetts.” Suddenly, Romney is being challenged in a way he has not been previously in this race. His political operation remains the class of the field in terms of money and organization across the country, and he has a detailed plan for accumulating the delegates necessary to win the nomination.

Scientists pause research on strain of bird flu (NY Times) — The scientists who altered a deadly flu virus to make it more contagious have agreed to suspend their research for 60 days to give other researchers around the world time to discuss the work and determine the best way to proceed. A letter explaining the decision is being published in two scientific journals, Science and Nature, which also plan to publish reports on the research, but in a redacted form omitting details that would let other researchers copy the experiments. The letter is signed by the scientists who produced the new, more

contagious form of the flu virus, as well as by other leading flu researchers. The scientists say their work has important public health benefits, but they acknowledge that it has sparked intense public fears that the deadly virus could accidentally leak out of a laboratory, or be stolen by terrorists, and result in a devastating pandemic. A national biosecurity panel in the United States has already taken the unusual step of asking the scientists to keep part of their data secret to prevent others from reproducing their work.

Vote on piracy bill delayed

WASHINGTON (NY Times)— Congressional leaders on Friday indefinitely shelved two antipiracy bills that had rallied the Internet and rocked Capitol Hill, dealing a major defeat to the traditional media industry while emboldening a new breed of online political activists. Using a medium that helped organize protests against the legislation, Senator Harry Reid, the majority leader, announced via Twitter that the vote would be delayed. But he indicated that the issue, which had been scheduled for a vote Tuesday, had not died. “There’s no reason that legitimate issues raised about PROTECT IP can’t be resolved,” he wrote, referring to the Senate bill by its shorthand name. “Counterfeiting & piracy cost 1000s of #jobs yearly. Americans rightfully expect to be fairly compensated 4 their work. I’m optimistic that we can reach compromise on PROTECT IP in coming week.” In the House, Representative Lamar Smith, the Texas Republican who is chairman of the Judiciary Committee, called off plans to formally draft his version of the antipiracy bill next month.

in the TD Bank parking lot Breakfast All Day 6-2 • Lunch @ 11:30 Victor Cruz arrived at Bridgton Academy in 2004 as a highly-touted recruit at UMass and quickly made his mark on the gridiron. (COURTESY PHOTO)


Victor Cruz was one of the biggest surprises of this football season, finishing third overall in receiving yards and helping to lead the New York Giants to their match-up this weekend in the NFC championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. His rise to the top tier of NFL wide receivers came as a surprise for many fans, coaches and opposing defenses, which he burned for more than 1,500 yards and nine touchdowns. But it also surprised his former football coach at Bridgton Academy, where Cruz played in 2004 between high school at Paterson Catholic in Paterson, N.J., and college at University of Massachusetts. “Here’s the thing: I think as a coach you have to have a pretty good eye for talent,” said Rick Marcella, who has coached at Bridgton Academy for the past 26 years. “There was no question that Victor was going to go on and become a pretty good college player.”

“But to say, ‘Oh yeah, I knew he was destined for greatness and would go on to play in the NFL,’ I’d be lying to you,” he added. Cruz arrived at Bridgton Academy in 2004 as a highly-touted recruit at UMass, which at the time was one of the top programs in Division 1-AA (now known as Football Championship Subdivision, or FCS). Unlike many other New England prep schools, Bridgton Academy only offers post-graduate programs, which tends to attract athletes looking to mature physically or improve academically before college, Marcella said. In Cruz’s case, the athletics were there, but the coach said he “needed to beef up his academics.” On the field, Cruz was an obvious standout. With a schedule that includes JV squads from the Ivy League as well as colleges in Division II, Cruz had 47 catches for 883 yards and eight touchdowns during his lone

CRUZ from page three

season at Bridgton. “He was most definitely our ‘go-to’ guy,” Marcella said. Many former students and fans might remember him for a onehanded diving grab that the head coach considers “one of most spectacular catches (he’s) ever seen.” After corralling the football, Cruz “twisted and landed flat on his back. The whole sideline erupted,” Marcella said. At Bridgton and later at UMass, Cruz was mostly an inside receiver who used speed and size to exploit mismatches with linebackers or cover safeties. He’s been used in a similar slot role with the Giants, where Cruz is a complement to Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham on the outside. Cruz wasn’t drafted out of UMass but was signed by the Giants as a free agent before the 2010 season. He had a strong preseason where he caught four touchdowns and made the Giants’ roster, but he got hurt early in the season and didn’t catch a pass. This year, after another Giants receiver left in free agency, Cruz received the chance to be an everyday player and made the most of his opportunity, Marcella said. Cruz isn’t the first player to reach the NFL after doing a term at Bridgton, but he’s definitely the most successful. Tight end Jermaine Wiggin, who also completed a year at Bridgton

Academy, caught 236 passes for 2,141 yards and 14 touchdowns during his seven-year NFL career, which included a Super Bowl win with the New England Patriots in 2001. Marcella says Cruz was always a top-tier athlete, but unlike other players who have the pieces but never flourish in the NFL, Cruz made the most of his chances. “What happened is he got into a camp with New York Giants and was able to capitalize on that opportunity. Some people get that opportunity and they don’t perform,” Marcella said. “He was a different story.” Marcella last spoke with Cruz when he was still at UMass, but he’s enjoyed watching his former player succeed. “Anytime you get to see one of your former players on TV getting that of publicity, that’s great, that’s the ultimate dream,” he said.

IN REVIEW Tele-Talk Does county government serve an important function? State Rep. Gene Chandler suggested at a recent Eggs & Issues breakfast forum that county government could be eliminated. Carroll County government includes the sheriff's office, registry of deeds, nursing home, county attorney's office and a farm. The budget is set by a group of 14 state representatives and managed by three county commissioners. Chandler said it's unnecessary for the county to have a nursing home when private companies can do the same work, and he said some of the duties performed by the sheriff's department should be done by State Police. He also mentioned rising costs at the jail. "Let's get in the real world, folks," Chandler said. "County government slides under the radar screen and I think it needs to be brought to the forefront because it's having a real big impact on your taxes." But commissioner Dorothy Solomon defended county government, saying local control is important to New England residents, and county government helps ensure that. This week's question is: Does county government serve an important function?

Blue-Collar No More Since 1932, blue-collar workers have been the bedrock upon which Democratic presidential candidates have built their coalitions. Franklin Roosevelt drew them into his party, and his successors, both winners and losers in the effort to win the White House, have put the votes and interests of blue-collar workers at the center of their campaign calculus and campaign rhetoric. No more — which is why what happened last week in South Carolina made even the sharpesteyed political expert squint. If the political landscape seems out of focus, it is because there has been a fundamental shift in the topography of American civic life. You might even call it a tremor, if not an earthquake, rumbling through the nation as a result of this 21st-century development: More blue-collar workers today identify themselves as Republicans than as Democrats. "This is a significant change, upending all of history from the Roosevelt years on," says William Leuchtenburg, the University of North Carolina emeritus historian who, with more than half a dozen books on FDR to his credit, may be the leading expert on the 32nd president. "The Great Depression was blamed on Republicans, big bankers and industrialists. At the same time, Roosevelt managed through his relief programs to sustain millions of Americans. The combination of those bound workers to the Democrats." That's why the new blue-collar affinity for the Republicans is so jarring, but it's based on compelling Wall Street Journal-NBC News survey data produced from interviews of 8,000 people, with a margin of error of a tiny 1.09 percent. Its implications are stunning, changing the way we look at the parties and the way the parties shape their messages, the way they recruit congressional and gubernatorial candidates, the way they behave on Capitol Hill — and the way the 2012 campaign is evolving. Perhaps most startling of all: Poll figures show that as many Republicans as Democrats blame Wall Street bankers for the nation's economic crisis. All this explains why the Republican candidates, first in New Hampshire and most recently in South Carolina, have undertaken a searing and searching critique of capitalism, transforming all of our established beliefs that led us to assume that the Democrats were the party of blue-collar workers (and labor) and that the Republicans were the party of business (and capital). The irony of this is that while the move of bluecollar voters toward the Republican Party began with Richard Nixon, who in 1968 cultivated voters who fell under the shorthand of "hard hats," and accelerated with Ronald Reagan, who in 1980 deliberately sought votes from workers who became known as Reagan Democrats, the real change in the character of the Republican Party may have come during the House speakership of Newt Gingrich. It was Gingrich who bid the GOP to look beyond its usual patrons on Wall Street and on the Business Roundtable and who tilled new political soil, creating a profile for himself, if not for the GOP, as being anti-government but not pro-business. With his ties to the information-technology industries, which themselves swept away old assumptions of American commerce, and with a rhetoric of revolution, which was anathema to the stability-seeking zeitgeist of big business, Gingrich plotted a new path for Republicans. Just as the new entrepreneurs showed contempt for the staid, accommodationist world of the old Fortune 500,

Gingrich showed contempt for the plodding, go-along attitude of the old GOP, personified by House Minority Leader Robert H. Michel of Illinois, whom he toppled. Thus Gingrich, with greater affinity for the National Federation of Independent Business than for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, may be the true engine of change in Washington and in the broader modern political culture. This change occurred roughly during a period when the Democrats, under the leadership of House Majority Whip Tony Coelho of California in the 1980s and later under Bill Clinton in the 1990s, began a groundbreaking offensive to cultivate business groups (and seek contributions and support from commercial interests). These groups once were firmly in the GOP camp, so much so that White House insiders, and even the president himself, expressed surprise about the influence of the bond market on the Clinton administration. It was a small leap from Gingrich's positions in 1995 to his blistering criticism this winter of former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts as a corporate viper who put profits ahead of people, just the sort of phrase that used to tumble effortlessly from the lips of politicians who opposed Gingrich's party. Now, Barack Obama is putting together a campaign effort that all but writes off the greatest legacy of a president he reveres, Franklin Roosevelt. It is not so much President Obama's temperament that veers him away from blue-color voters as his reading of the political landscape — and perhaps his political circumstances. "We know that blue-collar workers have been especially hard hit and that definitely affects their views," says Adam Seth Levine, a Cornell political scientist. "Even in divided government, Americans blame the president and his party for the bad economy. That makes them more likely to identify as Republicans." As a result, Obama is assembling a coalition that doesn't depend on the voters that were the mainstays of the presidential coalitions of Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter and even Clinton — though it is telling that each president in that string was less committed to the old formula than was his predecessor. Political coalitions change over time, rendering them almost unrecognizable from century to century. The 19th-century Democrats, with strong religious-conservative elements, opposed many of the principles now associated with the party, especially a strong central government and civil rights. The Republicans, with a strong elitist and reformist tint, advocated a strong federal government and openness to rights for newly emancipated slaves. Now the parties — always changing, more often being led than leading — seem to be etching new profiles. The old chestnut of Leuchtenburg's lectures, that you always could count on blue-collar workers to be Democrats, is no longer true, just as the reason for that iron rule of politics -- the vast mass of unionized voters in auto plants steel and textile mills — has faded. Parties in and out of office campaign for change, but the biggest change of all sometimes comes within the parties themselves. That's the biggest story of Campaign 2012 thus far. David M.

Help South Tamworth Post Office stay open To the editor: Help us keep the South Tamworth Post Office open! The U.S. Postal Service has a list of possible closures in May 2012. The South Tamworth Post Office is on this list. Postal officials will be at Union Hall, next door to the South Tamworth Post Office, on Tuesday, Jan. 24 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., to answer questions and provide info. Friends and neighbors, please try to attend. The South Tamworth Post Office has 62 box holders and 54 rural delivery recipients. As the smallest free-standing post office in New Hampshire, it is an area landmark and an often-photographed tourist attraction. It is also a social center for our community. Losing it would create difficulties especially for its many elderly patrons, who

could be faced with driving to a more distant post office or an outdoor neighborhood delivery collection box unit. The U.S. Postal Service cites cost-cutting as the reason for these closures. but closing all of the rural post offices won the USPS list would save only 0.7 percent of the U.S. Postal Service’s total operating budget. A petition will be available for signatures at the Union Hall meeting the on Jan. 24, and also at the South Tamworth Country Store, The Other Store, and the North Sandwich Country Store. Comments may also be sent to: Jim McCartney, USPS Postal Official, 151 Forest Ave., Portland, ME 04101. Comment forms are available at local post offices. The deadline for submitting comments is Feb. 23. Elizabeth Q. Wiesner South Tamworth

County taxpayers not being treated same? To the editor: There appear to be inequities in the county tax rates for each of the towns in Carroll County. Unless I am reading it wrong town rates vary from town to town. Each year they go up or down depending upon the town. For example, in 2010 Conway’s county rate was $1.09 (per thousand) in 2011 the rate decreased to $1.05. In

2010 Bartlett’s rate was $1.05 and in 2011 it increased to $1.10. Gene Chandler may be on to something. It could very well be the case that county taxpayers are not being treated the same when it comes to their tax bills. Perhaps the rationale and means by which the various rates are set can be explained by a county official. Mark Hounsell Conway

New sport slides onto the local scene BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — It's been quite a year for the Mount Washington Valley Curling Club. Actually in less than a year the club was formed; a competitive season was played in the fall; the sport even went global here in December when a dozen Australians asked to give it a throw; and Thursday WMUR's Chronicle came to Ham Ice Arena to highlight both the club and sport. "We've accomplished a lot and hopefully there's even more good things ahead," Pat Kittle, president of MWV Curling Club, said Thursday at Ham Ice Arena during the taping for Chronicle. Pete Ellis has been involved with the MWV Curling Club since its inception. He brings over 12 years of experience and love of the sport to the rink. "It's an easy game to play," he said. "You can learn enough to start in about 40 minutes, but (laughing) it'll take you the next 10 years to get good at it." The club will host its second Learn to Curl event Saturday, Jan. 20, at Ham Ice Arena on West Main Street 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. Curling is a sport in which players slide stones across a sheet of ice toward a target area. Two teams, each of four players, take turns sliding heavy (weighing between 38 to 44 pounds), polished granite stones, also called "rocks," across the ice curling sheet toward the house, a circular target marked on the ice. Each team has eight stones. The goal is to accumulate the highest score for a game, points being scored for the stones resting closest to the center of the house at the conclusion of each end, which is completed when both teams have thrown all of their stones. A game may consist of eight to 10 ends. Ellis said he knew curling and the valley would be a perfect match. "I think I'm pleased, but am I surprised? No, because I've seen it before," he said. "We thought that 40 people would be a reasonable size to end the first half year with and we've done well. We have the open house on Saturday and we'll see what comes from there. As I said earlier, it would be nice to get 12 teams of four, 60 people, that's

not a big jump." 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. Kirk Saunders, of Conway, is in his first year of curling and admits he's hooked on the sport. "I love it," he said. "It was one of those Olympic sports I saw on TV and I just couldn't stop watching it. My wife saw curling advertised in the paper and said you ought to try it so I did and I've had a blast!" Bill Wilczek, another first-year curler, makes the 80-minute drive from Littleton to play in the league. "I love the challenge of trying to get better," he said. "There's a lot of strategy to the sport. When you throw a stone and it goes where you want it to go, that's the best feeling." Ellis praised Wilczek and Saunders and a host of other first-year curlers. "This group is going to be a real good group of curlers before they're done," he said. "I'm excited about the enthusiasm we see here every single week. The desire to learn and the desire to play is really good." Ellis said following Learn to Curl

this Saturday, the club plans to run another teaching event on Jan. 28 for people who have decided they want to be in the league. "We want to get them out on the ice, we want to go further than we can go in the Learn to Curl or the open house," he said. "It's a training night. From there you should be able to jump in and play in a league. "I would like to let people know that we're here on Saturday nights and we'd welcome the company," Ellis continued. "Come down and watch us play, it's open, there's no charge to sit and watch and there's usually spare people around to answer any questions. It can be a very interesting evening. Even if you don't want to play it can be fun to come and watch." Paul Valle, of Conway and another first-year curler, said the sport appeals to him because it attracts all ages and abilities to the ice. "Anybody of any age and ability can do it," he said. "Plus, I think it's kind of new in this country. A lot of people have seen it in the Olympics and I think that's the real key. They say, 'Geez it looks like fun and I want to try it.' It's something anyone can do." see CURLING page 14

On target: New ranch teaches shooting skills WAKEFIELD — The Mark Allen Ranch Shooting School is named after a cowboy and stuntman, but the skills it teaches aren't for the movies. The ranch, which opened this fall, was founded by Pam and Ken McGovern, of Effingham. The couple owns and operates another company called Global Security Professionals, a security consulting firm that does physical security assessments and training for U.S. and international government agencies and large private interests. "About a year and a half ago, we decided to do one of the things we do for the government and bring it to the civilian market for our local community and that's shooting," said Ken McGovern. "We have taught shooting ever since we started Global Security, for federal agents and law enforcement. We said it should blend easy to the community and we identified a need." The ranch is named after Ken McGovern's brother, Mark Allen. Allen was a "modern day cowboy" who ran with a reenactment group called the Salt River Gang. Tragically, Allen passed away in 2009 at the age of 45 due to Sudden Epileptic Death Syndrome. On Dec. 17, eight people, including a Conway Daily Sun reporter, participated in the MAR's eight-hour basic shooting fundamentals course. Also participating were the McGoverns' son K.C. and his wife Angel. The first half of the class began around 8 a.m. at the Wakefield Public Safety building, and the second half was at the Wakefield Police Department's shooting range. MAR also offers classes at Ossipee

Town Hall and in Madison at the Carroll County Fish, Game and Shooting Club. A one-year membership to the club is included in the cost of MAR's eight-hour classes. MAR also has halfday classes. Ken McGovern and Dino Scala led the classroom portion of the class. Ken McGovern's career in law enforcement includes experience with New Mexico State Police and a police force in Ireland. Today, McGovern is a federal firearms instructor who also works part time for the Carroll County Sheriff's Office. Scala works as a part-time Carroll County Sheriff's Deputy and is certified firearms instructor for New Hampshire law enforcement. Students' firearm experience ranged from an Army veteran who was only familiar with rifles to a woman who never shot a gun in her life. At the end of the day, all the students said they liked the class. "This is the exact audience we are trying to reach," said Scala at the beginning of the class. Among the students were Jane and Dennis Downey of Parsonsfield, Maine. Dennis just recently acquired a handgun but had owned other types of guns all his life. Jane never shot a gun before. Jane wanted to learn shooting so her husband didn't have sole responsibility for their selfdefense. "My feeling about guns before I

came here was that guns kill people so I didn't want to have anything to do with it," said Jane Downey. "I had to get into the mindset of that (I'm) educated and well trained and they are safe." On the range Jane Downey was pleased to hit bulls eyes with two different types of handguns. Dennis Downey also had a positive experience at MAR. "I was amazed how quickly how quickly they could take away some of the apprehension I had," said Downey of the instructors. Claude and Nancylee Berman, of Effingham, both enjoyed the class. Both were more familiar with rifles than handguns. Claude Berman said he only learned to shoot rifles when he was in the military 25 years ago. Claude Berman was thinking about purchasing his first handgun for home defense. After learning about handguns Claude Berman concluded a shotgun would be a better choice for him. "One of the big benefits (of MAR) is it demystifies handguns," said Berman. "You see handguns in Hollywood and TV all the time. Really, they are not that scary. They have their uses. " Nancylee Berman enjoys target shooting and used to do that with a .22 rifle as a child. She thought it was valuable that MAR had a female instructor Pam McGovern who understands what its like to shoot as a woman with small hands. see next page

Valle likes the strategy behind the sport. "There's a lot more strategy than I realized," he said. "It's probably more strategy than anything else, it doesn't look it , but it is. Another name for it is chess on ice. I enjoy the social aspect of curling, but also really like the challenge — just trying to win and do a good job at it." WMUR's Chronicle will air the segment of the club in about two weeks. Reporter Jennifer Crompton even took to the ice to try the sport first hand. "She was a natural," Wilczek said. Chronicle, which has been on Channel 9 for the past decade, airs weekdays at 7:30 p.m. and focuses on the people, places and trends that give the Granite State its unique character. Cost for memberships to the MWV Curling Club varies. 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. 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. The club even permanently painted three curling sheets on the ice at the arena. Over 100 people turned out in September for the initial Curl-A-Palooza in which members of the Nashua and Merrimack curling clubs put on a demonstration of the sport with the inaugural match played on the West Main Street ice sheet. People in attendance applauded shots and were keen to learn more. Members of the Mount Washington Valley Curling Club were throughout the rink answering questions about everything from the costs of brushes (starting at around $70 on up to $200 for a carbon fiber brush) to the different types of footwear curlers wear (they actually have a Teflon base on the bottom of their shoes). From there a few learn-to-curl nights were held and almost 40 people signed up for the initial league. While some formed their own teams, others were simply created by pulling names out of a hat. For curling updates, call the Ham Ice Arena at 447-5886 or go to the MWV Curling Club on Facebook or on its newly created website (

Students are slowly acclimated to real guns. At first, students are presented with yellow rubber model hand guns, which have locks where the trigger would be. The yellow guns were used to impress two basic points: Never point your gun at anything you don't intend to shoot, and keep your finger off the trigger until your ready to pull it. Movies and television shows don't portray proper techniques, said McGovern. "The biggest problem is Hollywood," said McGovern. The instructors played several video clips to illustrate their points on gun safety. In one of the most shocking clips, a federal drug enforcement agent accidentally shot himself in the leg while presenting a safety lesson to parents and students. Despite being injured, the unidentified agent uses his mistake as a teaching point. "We want to develop muscle memory for you not to put your finger in the trigger guard," said McGovern. "Even law enforcement officers don't put their fingers on the trigger until we're ready to fire." McGovern says anytime a gun goes off accidentally it's a "negligent discharge" because there's always someone at fault. McGovern admits to making two negligent discharges during his career and vows there won't be a third. Neither of his accidental discharges resulted in any injuries. Later in the day, students start handling real weapons. Ammunition isn't allowed in the classroom. Before the class began. Scala and Ken McGovern carefully inspected the guns that students brought in to ensure they were unloaded. Anytime the instructors handled a new gun, they would encourage the students to make sure it was empty of bullets. With semi automatics, the procedure was to lock back the slide (the top of the gun) and have the students use their fingers to make sure there's no magazine in the grip or bullets in barrel. With a revolver students inspected the barrel and the cylinder. "You can't do it often enough," said McGovern. After the classroom exercises were complete, the school took an hour break for lunch and most students went to the Poor People's Pub, which is within walking distance from the Wakefield public safety building. After lunch, students drove to Wakefield Police's shooting outdoor shooting range. Paper and cardboard targets were stapled to wooden poles. The backstop consisted of a large mound. At the range, students put the skills they learned in the classroom into practice. Such skills included aligning the a hand's front and rear sites and the "weaver" and "isosceles" shooting stances. Three students were able to shoot at a time. Students on the firing line were given one-on-one attention from the instructors — the McGoverns and Scala. Each student was able to shoot several sets of five shots. On a typical hand gun, the rear site looks like two little rectangles spaced apart. The front site should appear to be right between the rear sites and be the same height. For example, a shot will land above the target if the front site appears taller than the rear sites. Instructors encouraged students to take their time when shooting. They told a reporter to slowly take up the"slack" (the distance the trigger moves before the gun fires) Then apply apply slow and steady pressure till the gun fires. They counseled students not to anticipate when the gun will fire because that will cause flinching and inaccuracy. Despite a lack of experience, the women in the class were quite accurate. Student Carlene Stewart had never fired anything other than a BB gun before taking the course. By the end of the class she was repeatedly making bull's-eyes. "The classroom portion was very, very helpful," said Stewart. "He explained how to pull the trigger, to slowly pull it, that was a real key to keeping the gun steady."

Snow Report

Fresh snow creates great conditions for weekend

In the Jackson Ski Touring Center 153 Main Street in Jackson Village Open Daily 9-5 • 603-383-7100

CONWAY — It's shaping up to be a great weekend out on the touring trails and ski slopes — and yes, the snowmobiling trails, too, at long last. Anywhere from five to 12 inches of fresh powder were reported by local touring centers and alpine areas Friday after Thursday night's storm. “We got 8.5 inches down at the office in the village, and we had a reported 10 inches up on Popple Mountain. All of our trails are now open with 142 kilometers of trails,” said Jackson Ski Touring’s Thom Perkins, on the eve of the White Mountain 30K Classic Saturday. Perkins said the classic is set to get under way in the village at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, and then racers will head up the Yotel to the Eagle to follow Alice's Alley and the Wave with laps in the international stadium. It will return via the Yotel to the finish in the village. “The race should be over with by noon. But we want people to know that we will still have other recreational ski trails open during the race, so there is plenty of terrain,” said Perkins on Friday, one of those cobaltblue-skied days when you just want to get out there. But, that's what weekends are for, right? For further information, call 3839355 or visit

Bear Notch Ski Touring (3742277) received up to 10 inches, and the groomers were out in force, according to Doug Garland, with great skiing along the Saco and into the Experimental Forest. Trails to Attitash Grand Summit were groomed Thursday and are now in good shape. Mount Washington Valley Ski Touring and Snowshoe Center (356-9920) is presenting its second annual, four-mile Whitaker Woods Snowshoe Scramble Jan. 21 at 10 a.m., with registration from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Forty-nine participants of all ages competed in the event last year. Jim Johnson finished first with a time of 0:26:53. Amber Ferreira was the first female finisher (12th place overall) with a time of 0:30:55. Mount Washington Valley Ski Touring has 40k open in Whitaker Woods and along the Intervale, and has 45k open for snowshoeing (guided snowshoe tours are offered Saturdays at 1 p.m.). The Mount Washington Valley Nordic Club offers skiing under the lights at Whitaker Field Fridays from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Bretton Woods Nordic Center (278-3322) has 25k track set and 35k skate groomed, with more snow due Saturday. see SNOW REPORT page 18

RANGE from page 15

On the range, students were able to choose from 18 handguns of all different shapes and sizes. One of MAR's goals is to help prospective handgun buyers to pick a weapon that's appropriate for them. Instructors suggested that revolvers make a good for the first-time gun owner. That's because it's easier to know how many bullets are in a revolver's cylinder than a semi automatic handgun's magazine. Also, semi automatics have a cocking slide, which some people might find difficult to manipulate. At one point, McGovern asked the reporter to lock back the slide on a semi automatic handgun in order to render it unable to fire. The reporter said he couldn't do it. McGovern replied that gun was a cheap Saturday Night special, which didn't have a locking mechanism for the slide. McGovern told the class to avoid cheap $100 handguns because they often lack critical safety features. Another factor to consider is trigger pull — or the amount of force, measured in pounds, that it takes to pull the trigger. Typically, a semi automatic might have three or four pounds. A light trigger pull makes the gun easier to fire but can potentially make it less safe. The instructors also said its important to match the size of the gun to your hands.The goal is to put as much "meat" of your hand on the gun as possible. Your trigger finger should stay on the rail (the side) of the gun until you're ready to shoot. The webbing of your trigger hand should be snug against the "beaver tail" or the curve at the rear of the gun. The thumb on

your trigger finger hand should rest on top of the other hand's thumb. After the class was done with the shooting range, the students returned to the classroom to clean and oil the guns. The instructors stressed that it's critical to make sure the guns are unloaded before cleaning begins. Proper cleaning after the gun is fired can prevent misfires. Students were also shown a wide range of holsters. Ken and Pam McGovern recommend picking the holster that's designed for the particular make and model of gun because universal holsters might not fit properly. In addition to the the basic shooting fundamentals course, MAR also offers National Rifle Association basic pistol shooting. That class meets the requirements for obtaining concealed weapon permits in Maine and Florida. In this class students will shoot .22 .380 and 9 mm guns. MAR offers basic classes for women and seniors only. Students may use their own handguns in the classes as long as they aren’t usual models. Before launching GSP, Ken McGovern lived in a number of places including the western United States and Ireland. Before coming to New Hampshire, Ken McGovern was working for Intel Corporation in Boston. The McGoverns moved to Effingham for its rural character. "My wife and I love it up here," said McGovern. "She spent vacation here her whole life and we were married in Albany at the Darby Field Inn. We thought how cool it would be for us to live up here sometime."

But we could use more. It might rain Monday, so let's hope not. But what we could really use is some snow in Boston to convince people we have it up here.” For a complete report on snowmobile conditions, visit the N.H. Snowmobile Association website at

Occupy to protest Citizens United court case Saturday BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Occupy the Mount Washington Valley on Saturday will protest the second anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. "This landmark decision opened the floodgates for unlimited contributions from corporations to political activities and led to the creation of the super PACs (political action committees) that have quickly come to dominate our elections," said Occupier Joe Bagshaw. "These expenditure-only nonprofit organizations can mount massive advertising campaigns for or against any candidate, although they cannot

legally coordinate with the candidate." Occupiers will be at the Conway Public Library from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Volunteers, some dressed like justices in black robes, will be on hand to distribute informational fliers and engage in discussion. Others will gather with signs and posters at the intersection of routes 16 and 153 from 10 a.m. to noon. Occupy will offer registered voters the opportunity to sign onto a letter to U.S. Senator Shaheen thanking her for co-sponsoring Senate Joint Resolution 29 for a constitutional amendment that would effectively reverse Citizens United. Senator Tom Udall is the originator of the SJ29. For more information contact Bagshaw at 447-2697 or Dick Pollock at 770-8277.

Valley Green Tips

Green resolutions for 2012

What do the catalogues in your mailbox say about you? The retail world has me profiled as an upscale interior designer-landscaping-gourmet chef with a serious interest in high-end electronics, telescopes, and cosmetics, requiring enough outdoor gear for a quick climb up and down each of the 48 4,000 footers before a breakfast of mail-order sausages and pears. Well equipped with an array of undergarments of various levels of practicality, I am not only prepared for any possible weather conditions or encounters, but ready to cope with the possible consequences of quick changes in and out of my collection of western riding boots, cross trainers, and four-inch spike heels, because I am fully stocked with more orthopedic foot products than a podiatrist. Okay. I’ll admit to you that I’ve had a longstanding catalogue reading habit. I even find many of these products interesting, particularly if it’s 2 a.m.

and I can’t sleep and am too tired to read more demanding literature. With so many other more serious vices in the world, what’s the real harm in my tea sipping, window shopping, "just looking" retail voyeurism? I recycle them, after all. There’s the hitch. Recycling takes energy, and by allowing unnecessary mail to enter my home, I’m wasting a lot of it. Not to mention the trees, paper, ink, etc. that went into their production, or the human energy in handling them in transit to or from my home. When the sheer volume of mailings started to increase last fall, I decided to take inventory. I saved each catalogue that arrived between November first and the end of December. On January first, they weighed in at 24.2 pounds. This does not include magazines or paid subscriptions or even the rest of the junk mail that arrives in envelopes. Those were just catalogues, sneaking into the mailbox

one at a time, a few each day, over a two-month period, and I didn’t purchase anything from any of them. As a conscientious downsizer, I am unwilling to let this continue and am tackling this as one of my green resolutions for 2012. A first step in removing your name from mailing lists is to contact Mail Preference Service at Direct Marketing Association. Complete a registration form at www.DMAConsumers. org. You will have to exercise much more patience than if you simply placed an order, because although catalogue companies are capable of getting a package to your door within 24 hours, it can take three months to see any change in your mailbox. You may also directly call the catalogue companies and ask that your name be deleted from their mailing list. If you check the ordering page, there is usually tiny print with instructions. These two practices should dramati-

Julie Lanoie cally reduce the weight of your mail. What are your green resolutions for 2012? The following are a few more tips provided by the Mount Washington Valley Green Team to help provide some ideas for making green resolutions in 2012: Green Tips: 1. Streamline your waste stream. Could your household be reducing, reusing, and recycling more effectively? Is it time for your small business to establish a recycling program? Do you need help getting started? If you are already committed to recycling and redistributing the things that leave your house for good, consider making 2012 the year you eliminate more of what comes through the front door in the first place. 2. Produce more of your own food. It doesn’t get more local than your own back yard. Have you wanted to start a garden, but don’t have anywhere to plant? Spring will be here before you know it. Consider participating in one of three community gardens in the valley. If you already have your own, let this be your year to learn see next page

Mount Whiteface from Mount Katherine. (ED PARSONS PHOTO) from preceding page

At the junction I took a left on the half mile Mount Katherine Trail. It wound up and up, and I grew impatient to get to the top. When I got there, the view was much better than I expected. The slanting light and the encroaching cold front enhanced it. A snow choked Mount Whiteface stood out sharply, and ribbonlike lenticular clouds curved above Mount Passaconaway and Mount Paugus. An opening in the trees to the east on the summit revealed a great view below of field and farm in Wonanancet. I lingered, then headed back down to Tilton Spring, where I took the 0.9 mile Tilton Spring Path. It was the longest section of trail so far, but it went quickly, traversing a southwest slope

and entering the Sandwich Range Wilderness. A frigid breeze from the west moved through the trees, and the afternoon light matured. I hit the McCrillis Path. Taking a right, I walked out to the lower Blueberry Ledge Trail on Mount Whiteface, where the virgin snow I had walked in since the Gordon Path suddenly turned into a wide swath of new footprints. It looked like (and was, in its own way) a pilgrimage route-- in this case, to a New Hampshire 4,000 footer. I took the Blueberry Ledge Trail down to the hamlet of Ferncroft, and walked out to the hiker parking lot. To my surprise, all the cars were still there. I knew there was power in numbers, but I hoped they were on their way down, as the late afternoon got colder.

The straight run with turns For racers, powder skiers, and to expand your general skier “bag-otricks,” try keeping your skis pointed down the hill as you make your turns. It sounds odd, but your skis will often make better turns if you don’t turn them. Keep the tips pointed toward the bottom. Keep your knees and hips pointed down the hill. Keep everything pointed down the trail or race course as you roll from one set of edges to the other. Let your skis do the work. For the racers on firm surfaces this is critical. For general skiing, it’s fast, fun, and helps get your edges to work. Instead of turning from side to side, think of your run as a straight run that moves back and forth across the hill. Get on your edges above each gate if you are racing; keep your skis pointed down the hill, and let your edges pull you across the hill enough to clear the next gate. Roll onto your other edges,

and again let your skis pull you across the hill as you’re going down the hill. Ski the entire course or trail with your skis pointed down the hill. This strategy is best practiced initially without gates-and on easy terrain. As you gain confidence, move onto steeper terrain (and in your tuck), and eventually into the race course and onto steeper trails. The straight run with turns in it may be your ticket to greatness. On new snow days this focus will put the big smile on. Remember, the best advice of all, take a lesson or attend a race clinic. You’ll have a great time and improve your time.

by Scott Adams

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be in the mood to stir things up. You’ll add some sparkle and perhaps a pinch of mischief, to another person’s life. Your creations and suggestions will invigorate the action. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). More research is needed before you’re really ready to go for a goal. Read and make arrangements to interview those who are in the know. You’ll clarify your goals over the course of next week. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It seems like you’re always the one expected to be the grown up of the group. Sometimes you wish you didn’t have to have such a high level of responsibility. Take a breather. You’ll feel better after you de-stress. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When your mood is lighthearted, the beauty in you radiates out. Your upbeat social energy will help you attract people who give you even more reason to laugh and smile. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Keep trying new approaches to a problem. It will be easier to experiment when you truly believe that there’s a magic combination that will work. There really is a winning solution; you just have to find it. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 21). You will move outside your normal avenues of thought. Newfound knowledge will add depth to your life. Endeavors come to completion in February. A new relationship becomes strong through spring. Your focus on work, service, education and travel will lead to achievement in the fall. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 2, 12, 18 and 50.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be frugal without thinking too much about it or trying too hard to save. You’ll naturally gravitate toward choices that put more money in your pocket because they just make sense. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll use your originality in an environment where almost everyone is doing the same thing. You’ll stand out in a good way. People will notice you and, in a sense, feel more awake. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People will ask you difficult questions. You’ll have an inkling about this, and you’ll be wise to anticipate, prepare for and rehearse ahead of time. Try out different answers to see what feels right. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Monitor your nervous system. Tension levels will rise and fall. You can manage your stress through exercise and other coping strategies. Talk to a friend. Cut events out of your schedule. Slow things down. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll feel a strong drive to be first. Is it your ego pushing you forward or are you merely acting on the impulse of destiny? Stay aware of the others around you. If you are meant to be No. 1, no one else will be hurt in the process. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be an all around good day. You’ll be in high spirits and quite productive. Spontaneous activities will delight you. The events you plan will be equally special. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Travel, teaching and study are avenues for increasing the money flow to your realm, and that’s not the only positive result for your efforts. You love to learn and have fun with it.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 21, 2012— Page 31

Today is Saturday, Jan. 21, the 21st day of 2012 with 345 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: In 1793, French King Louis XVI was executed in Paris. On this date: In 1861, Mississippi Sen. Jefferson Davis resigned from the U.S. Senate, 12 days before Mississippi seceded from the Union. He later became president of the Confederate States of America. In 1924, Vladimir Lenin, architect of the Bolshevik Revolution and the first leader of the Soviet Union, died of a brain hemorrhage at the age of 54. In 1954, the world’s first atomic-powered submarine, the Nautilus, was launched at Groton, Conn. In 1976, the supersonic Concorde airplane was put into service by Britain and France. In 1977, U.S. President Jimmy Carter pardoned American Vietnam War-era draft evaders and ordered a case-by-case study of deserters. In 1991, Iraq announced that it would use hostages as human shields against allied warplanes. In 1998, Pope John Paul II arrived in Havana for his first visit to Cuba. In 2003, the U.S. Census Bureau said Hispanics had moved past African-Americans as the largest minority group in the United States. In 2004, a U.S. scientist who had toured North Korea nuclear facilities told the U.S. Congress there was evidence they could produce enriched plutonium. In 2005, Iraq officials said $300 million was taken from Baghdad’s central bank and flown to Lebanon. Its whereabouts were unknown. In 2007, Afghanistan’s Kabul government was reported planning war against its illegal opium trade with an attack on 55,000 acres of ripening poppies in a leading drug-producing province. In 2008, 20 miners were killed in an explosion at a reportedly unsafe coal mine in China’s northern Shanxi Province. In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court, in a farreaching and controversial 5-4 decision, ruled that the government cannot restrict the spending of corporations and unions for political campaigns. In 2011, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., said to be the main target in a lethal assault at a Tucson political meeting in which six people died, left a hospital almost two weeks after she was shot in the head to begin rehab in Houston.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: What do you think about people who attempt to converse with you from another room? My boyfriend does it fairly often. He may be on the computer while I’m reading or watching TV, and he’ll yell out a question or tell me something. Most of the time I answer him, but then he’ll continue the conversation -- all from the other room. I find it rude, and to be quite honest, disrespectful. I also think it makes no sense because with the TV on it’s difficult to hear him. If I want to speak to someone in another room, I get off my “keester” and go directly to him or her. That’s common sense. My former roommate used to do the same thing. Do you think this is a “guy thing”? -- CAN’T HEAR IN NEW YORK DEAR CAN’T HEAR: Nope. It’s just lazy. And it continues because you allow it. Tell your boyfriend that if he has something he wants to say to you, he should come and say it. Point out that you give him that respect. And if he “forgets,” stay put and don’t answer from the other room. DEAR ABBY: I have a friend with whom I exchange birthday and Christmas gifts. I make a great deal of effort to find things I know she would like, and I have been quite successful. My friend, however, buys me things I suspect she would like for herself. Example: I’m always hot while she’s always chilly. She bought me heavy pajamas and a warm robe for Christmas. I don’t like spicy food -- she does. She gave me two large containers of seasoning containing chili pepper. I love to read fiction while she prefers nonfiction. For my birthday I received a book about history.

This kind of exchange has been going on for years, and I don’t remember receiving one gift I could really use. What can I say to her? -- PEEVED IN PITTSBURGH DEAR PEEVED: To say something would be rude. I do have a suggestion, however. On the next gift-giving occasion, give your friend some things YOU would like. Example: A pretty fan to accessorize a summer dress, a jar of your favorite jam, a novel or two you would enjoy reading -- and then you can agree on a gift exchange. Problem solved. DEAR ABBY: I have a 2-year-old son, “Seth.” His father, “Ray,” and I went our separate ways during my pregnancy. He came to see Seth a few times when he was a couple of months old and promised he’d continue, but he didn’t follow through. Ray has married since then, and hasn’t called to ask about his son. I don’t call him either. He didn’t show up for court and the DNA test, so the judge ordered him to pay child support by default, which he has been doing. I don’t believe in forcing a man to be a father, and I would never make my son visit him. It is obvious Ray has no interest in his child. I contacted the grandparents and they are just as cold. What do I tell Seth when he asks about his father? -- SOLE PARENT IN ALABAMA DEAR SOLE PARENT: Tell him the truth. Explain that when he was born, Ray wasn’t ready to accept the responsibilities that go along with being a dad -- and that as time has passed, Ray has been unwilling to step forward. As sad as that may be, it would be worse to give your son false information or false hope that his biological father will ever be willing to give him more than the court ordered him to.

Students are chosen for this award by the faculty and the student body as exemplifier of the qualities of dependability, service and leadership. In anouncing the award, the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution said both Haine and Pike are "a credit to their community, their family and their school. This is an honor that will accompany them throughout their lifetimes. It is a reflection on their excellent characters and abilities. The honor is one which should be noted on every college application and at every job interview that these fine young people will encounter. The award speaks for itself." They will be honored again on the state level in April when all of the New Hampshire 2012 DAR Good Citizens meet for a luncheon at the Holiday Inn in Concord. A tour of the N.H. State House is a part of the venue. If the winners wish to be considered for a scholarship, they can write an essay on a patriotic

Spiller wins raffle of portrait by local artist Elizabeth Irwin

CONWAY — Mike Spiller is the winner of the portrait raffle, winning a portrait of his choice painted by local artist Elizabeth Irwin. Spiller won an oil portrait of his choice in early September, when two youngsters, Daniel and Miya, pulled his name from a hat. Spiller then met with artist Elizabeth Irwin, to talk about the type of portrait Spiller would choose. He chose a painting of his two cats, Halo and Shauntie. The proceeds of the raffle were used to help offset some of the costs of college student Bjorn Sage's trip to New Zealand, where Sage finished his college education in environmental conservation, with a minor in economics. Bjorn Sage recently returned from the Eco Quest program and is ready to begin his career in that field. Sage said he was grateful for all those involved in the raffle, as well as any who contributed encouragement and help throughout his college years; "I didn't fail to remember any who supported me along the way and really appreciate the many people involved, and can't thank you enough," he said.

Anastasia W. Mahan

Anastasia W. Mahan, formerly of Lincoln, Mass. and Jackson, died peacefully in Malden on Jan. 12 from complications of old age. Several years ago, following the death of her husband of 62 years, Russ, she moved to Malden to be near her daughter Stephanie and family. Born on April 27, 1918, in Boston to Ralph and Anastasia Wilson, she graduated from Wellesley High School in 1934 and attended Wellesley College before transferring to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York, where she graduated in 1939. Stasia began a career as an actress, first touring the United States with “What A Life!” and then in New York City and the Boston area with radio and commercial work. In the early 1940s she was “Marsha Jordan”— the radio presence of the Jordan Marsh Department store, advising young women on fashion and style. In 1944, Stasia married Russell P. Mahan, who had pursued her since meeting her at a Wellesley mixer 10 years previously. The couple set up housekeeping in Cambridge, started their family and soon moved to more spacious quarters in Newtonville. Meanwhile they searched nearby towns for land suitable to build their permanent home. From 1947 to 1951,

Stasia and Russ could be found in Lincoln every weekend, working to build the family home on Sandy Pond Road where she and Russ would raise their four children and live for nearly 60 years. In addition to homemaking, Stasia excelled at sewing, knitting and weaving, kept the family supplied with Toll House cookies, and enjoyed pampering her many flowering plants and orchids. Her home was always open to her many friends for morning coffee or afternoon tea. Stasia was active in her church and community. For many years she volunteered with the Massachusetts Association for the Blind, reading textbooks and scholarly papers to visually impaired college and graduate students at area campuses. She also recorded books for the blind. Stasia is survived by her daughters, Sheila, of Portland, Ore., Catherine and her husband, John Hill, of Baltimore, Md., Stephanie and her husband, Charles Stigliano, of Malden, Mass.; her son, Michael and his wife, Susanna Fichera, of Bowdoinham, Maine; four grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. A Memorial Mass will be held Saturday, Jan. 28, at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Church in Malden.

ews and great nieces and nephews. She was the light and spark to anyone that knew her. She loved her family and friends dearly. Janet worked for many years in the shoe shop in Fryeburg Maine. When she wasn’t working she was busy taking care of anyone who needed her and those who didn’t even know that they needed her. She always had a smile for anyone. She loved to camp and spend time with her family. She touched a great many lives, She will never be forgotten, always loved. Per her wishes there will be no services at this time.

Rotary donates dictionaries for Freedom students

FREEDOM — The Rotary Club of Ossipee (a branch of the North Conway Rotary Club), recently brought new dictionaries to students of the third and sixth grades of Freedom Elementary School. Karin Schroeder, principal of Freedom Elementary, said “We can’t thank the Ossipee Rotary Club enough for their generosity and for reaching out to the school. Our students are very excited about their new resources." Rotary’s goal is “service in the community, the workplace and around the world.” Providing dictionaries to local schools helps meet that goal by assisting students to excel in their studies and go on to be successful and productive members of society.

Vibrant colors mark winter art exhibit at Community School

TAMWORTH – The frozen grays and browns of our New Hampshire winterscape may yet be brightened by snowfalls this month, but if you’re longing for color you’ll have to look elsewhere! Here’s a suggestion: Set aside an hour to warm yourself by the woodstove in The Community School lobby and feast your eyes on the vibrant colors of Nicole Maher’s distinctive oil paintings on wood or canvas lining the walls of the two lobbies. Loving the native New England palate, this local artist is known for portraying what she sees outside her own Wonalancet windows, in the shadow of Mount Whiteface. Some of Maher’s pieces demand immediate attention with their size and intensity; others could become comfortable friends tucked by a chair in your favorite nook. All paintings in this display are available for purchase. In an exuberance of color, Maher has filled the lobby and walls of this farmhouse school building. On one wall, the stark geometric pattern of bare-branched trees creates a stained glass effect against the backdrop of rose-colored sky and Sandwich Range mountain tops. Across the room, bright sunlight punches out of the canvas off the ripples of a woodland stream. Turn to your right and you’re gazing at a tangle of tulips from Maher’s own garden.

Oh, what a relief it is BY JASON ROBIE It’s akin to the feeling you get as a kid when Christmas morning is finally here. The anticipation has built up for weeks and now you awake to the smells of breakfast and the scene of Santa’s bounty left behind. Regardless of whether your gift is a pair of socks or that new easy-bake oven you’ve been eyeing all this time, the feeling of relief is the same. For those of us who spend lots of time traveling, it is that relaxing sensation when you finally arrive at your destination. After long hours on the road or in the air, when you finally plop down your travel bag and can take a hot shower, fall into own bed and get some overdue sleep or just wash-up and spend some long awaited, quality-time with your couch! The nerves ease, the shoulders relax and once again you can feel at “home.” What got me on this kick today is that beautiful white stuff that has finally fallen from the sky and blanketed Jason Robie our beautiful valley! The ski resorts have done an admirable job of getting their trails in order. The snowmakers have been spending countless hours making up for Mother Nature. And the groomers have been “making mountains of mole-hills” in the best way possible. Now, two weeks in a row, we finally have the pleasure of natural snow for the rest of the area. I’ll admit it is nice to hit the slopes and enjoy the work of the “machines." But more than anything, I enjoy a simple drive through the back roads to take in the quiet beauty of snow covered trees and homes. What a relief. It is one of the many reasons we live in this beautiful area. I love summertime. I enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking and just stepping outside of my house without shivering. Summer offers peepers at night, warm days in the sun and countless activities for all ages. But winter and snow offer something even more special. Sure, the temperatures are a little less friendly but the scenes created by nature’s frosting are second to none. Hiking along a frozen sidewalk in the woods without stumps and rocks to trip over is quite a treat. And sliding your way back down that trail is a well-deserved reward for your hard work. There’s a good reason they are called the White Mountains! Finding that sense of relief can come in various forms. If you are trying to sell you home, there is nothing better than the arrival of that offer in the amount you were hoping for. For buyers, when you find that home in which you can envision building your new life, you know your exhausting search is finally over. For those of us “in” the business, when two people are able to meet in the middle, agree on price and conditions and make their way to the closing table, there is no better feeling. Not only are you happy you were able to service your seller appropriately and find a buyer. But, the feeling of helping someone find a place to call home is also something special. Ask anyone in the real estate industry how the market is going and more often than not, you’ll get an answer with a tone of relief. While the homes are not “flying off the shelves” like they did six or seven years ago, the general consensee ROBIE page 42

This week’s Home of the Week is a contemporary tri-level condominium at Stonehurst.

Country feel in the middle of North Conway CONWAY — Stonehurst Condominiums have not had trouble maintaining their value in these troubled times, because they offer a great location in the middle of North Conway with easy access to the mountains, restaurants, golfing and the many amenities offered in the Mount Washington Valley.

sus is one of optimism. Consumer confidence is getting back where it belongs, lending companies are putting together smart loans with appropriate levels of caution, and day-byday people are buying up homes and getting on with their lives. Relief can come in many forms. For some it is the privilege of first tracks on a freshly groomed slope after a long week at work. Others find solace in an evening with friends and family. In the warmer months, a quiet morning on a peaceful pond is just the thing. Still there are those, like myself, that find their rejuvenating relief on the top of Mount Washington and the silence of the snow covered forest along the way. Whatever your pleasure, I hope you find your own sense of relief this weekend. Jason Robie is a staff writer for Badger Realty in North Conway. Phone number is (603) 356-5757.


Even though the economy is tough these days, there is opportunity for some of us! If you've kept your job at roughly the same pay and hours, and there's no reason to expect any changes, you may be able to get a great deal on a more substantial home in our area. If you own a starter home, or a home in the best-selling range of our area, you're in an excellent position to "move up." Many homes in the mid-range market are just sitting, waiting for a buyer. Opportunity knocks! First, determine how much more you may be able to afford. Interest rates are at historic lows. If you haven't refinanced in several years, you may be able to get more home for the same money you're presently paying now. Interest rates are currently at about 4 percent. If your current loan is at 6 percent or even more, that could make a big difference in your current borrowing power. A $200,000, 30-year loan costs $1,199 per month at 6 percent interest. At 4 percent, that same loan only costs $954. That's nearly $250 less per month. You could actually buy a home for $50,000 more with a slightly lower monthly payment than you currently have now. Of course, if you don't want to move, you might want to consider a refinance of your current home. Another housing expense you want to take into account are your real estate taxes on your current home. From town to town

Moving up doesn’t necessarily mean buying a larger home. You could buy a home in a more convenient location for your family needs, or have a mountain view, more privacy, better amenities, or a higher quality home. in our valley, real estate taxes can vary to a considerable degree. Taxes in the Mount Washington Valley and Western Maine can range from $9.15 per $1,000 evaluation to as much as $21.78 per $1,000. On a $200,000 home, taxes alone could range from $1,830 per year to $4,500 per year. If you live in a town with the highest tax rate, you're paying $2,526 more per year, or over $200 per month more than the town with the lowest rate. That can give you a lot more borrowing power without increasing your monthly housing expenses. Compare the homes first, then compare the taxes. Moving up doesn't necessarily mean buying a larger home. You could buy a home in a more convenient location for your family needs, or have a mountain view, more privacy, better amenities, or a higher quality home. In our valley midrange homes have been discounted substantially more than starter homes and

there is a better selection too. In a stronger market, mid-range homes sell for substantially more. Moving to a home in the $225,000-and-up range in this area generally means a substantial discount in value when compared to starter homes. To take advantage of the opportunities in a down market, it's time to look at your loan, your taxes, and properties that are in slower moving price ranges $225,000 to $400,000 . It's the same opportunity you've always heard: "Buy when everyone's selling. Sell when everyone's buying." As you can see, our present real estate market may provide you an opportunity to improve your long term equity position and have a nicer home to enjoy too, especially if you have an older loan and live in a higher tax-rate area. Even if you don't, there are plenty of deals out there. When buying a home, you should be aware of some of the changing factors that add value to a home. Energy efficiency is becoming very important and quality has become more important than size. These homes can save you money in heating, cooling and maintenance costs, as well as improving the comfort of your new home. Is it time to start looking at your options?

December existing-home sales show uptrend

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 21, 2012— Page 45

WASHINGTON — Existing-home sales continued on an uptrend in December, rising for three consecutive months and remaining above a year ago, according to the National Association of Realtors. The latest monthly data shows total existing-home sales1 rose 5.0 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.61 million in December from a downwardly revised 4.39 million in November, and are 3.6 percent higher than the 4.45 million-unit level in December 2010. The estimates are based on completed transactions from multiple listing services that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops. Lawrence Yun, National Association of Realtors' chief economist, said these are early signs of what may be a sustained recovery. “The pattern of home sales in recent months demonstrates a market in recovery,” he said. “Record low mortgage interest rates, job growth and bargain home prices are giving more consumers the confidence they need to enter the market.” For all of 2011, existing-home sales rose 1.7 percent to 4.26 million from 4.19 million in 2010. According to Freddie Mac, the national average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage fell to another record low of 3.96 percent in December from 3.99 percent in November; the rate was 4.71 percent in December 2010; record-keeping began in 1971. National Association of Realtors' president Moe Veissi, broker-owner of Veissi & Associates Inc., in Miami, said more buyers are expected to take advantage of market conditions this year. “The American dream of homeownership is alive and well. We have

a large pent-up demand, and household formation is likely to return to normal as the job market steadily improves,” he said. “More buyers coming into the market mean additional benefits for the overall economy. When people buy homes, they stimulate a lot of related goods and services.” Total housing inventory at the end of December dropped 9.2 percent to 2.38 million existing homes available for sale, which represents a 6.2-month supply2 at the current sales pace, down from a 7.2month supply in November. Available inventory has trended down since setting a record of 4.04 million in July 2007, and is at the lowest level since March 2005 when there were 2.30 million homes on the market. “The inventory supply suggests many markets will see prices stabilize or grow moderately in the near future,” Yun said. Foreclosures3 sold for an average discount of 22 percent in December, up from 20 percent a year ago, while short sales closed 13 percent below market value compared with a 16 percent discount in December 2010. The national median existing-home price4 for all housing types was $164,500 in December, which is 2.5 percent below December 2010. Distressed homes – foreclosures and short sales — accounted for 32 percent of sales in December (19 percent were foreclosures and 13 percent were short sales), up from 29 percent in November; they were 36 percent in December 2010. All-cash sales accounted for 31 percent of purchases in December, up from 28 percent in November and 29 percent in December 2010. Investors

445 White Mtn Hwy Conway, NH

account for the bulk of cash transactions. Investors purchased 21 percent of homes in December, up from 19 percent in November and 20 percent in December 2010. First-time buyers fell to 31 percent of transactions in December from 35 percent in November; they were 33 percent in December 2010. Contract failures were reported by 33 percent of NAR members in December, unchanged from November; they were 9 percent in December 2010. Although closed sales are holding up better than this finding would suggest, contract cancellations are caused largely by declined mortgage applications and failures in loan underwriting from appraised values coming in below the negotiated price. Single-family home sales increased 4.6 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.11 million in December from 3.93 million in November, and are 4.3 percent higher than the 3.94 million-unit pace a year ago. The median existing single-family home price was $165,100 in December, which is 2.5 percent below December 2010. Existing condominium and co-op sales rose 8.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 500,000 in December from 460,000 in November but are 2.0 percent below the 510,000-unit level in December 2010. The median existing condo price was $160,000 in December, down 3.0 percent from a year ago. Existing-home sales in the Northeast jumped 10.7 percent to an annual pace of 620,000 in December and are 3.3 percent above a year ago. The median price in the Northeast was $231,300, which is 2.7 percent below December 2010.

Reduce the risk of rejection when applying for a loan Rejection hurts. But the pain is magnified when rejection is unexpected or proves costly. According to a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors, 15 percent of buyers are being rejected for a mortgage after they've submitted a purchase contract on a particular home. That means they have paid good money to formally apply for a loan, which typically involves a fee of several hundred dollars for an appraisal on the home the borrower wants to purchase. Sometimes, rejection even happens at the eleventh hour, upending moving plans. "I have seen [lending firms] decide not to wire the money when everyone is sitting at the closing table," observes Paul Logan, president of the Pennsylvania Association of Mortgage Brokers. To be sure, in this ultra-conservative, post-creditcollapse era, some homebuyers do everything right, only to find out that a lender decides it would be wrong to give them a loan. Here, a look at ways to reduce the risk of a rejection blindsiding your homebuying plans: Pre-approval is conditional While to a layman's ear the terms "qualified" and "conventional" both convey eligibility, in the mortgage-lending business there's a stark difference:

When someone is "pre-qualified," it means that chances are pretty good they can get a loan of a certain size, but when they're "pre-approved" it looks more certain. When a real estate is working with a buyer, the agent should make sure the buyer has a reliable pre-approval for a certain loan amount so that they know to look at homes in a particular price range, asserts John Sullivan, past president of the National Association of Exclusive Buyers Agents. Although most lenders will pre-approve a customer for free, they should give the process scrutiny, running customers information through an underwriting program and probably verifying data by asking for pay stubs and other documents, adds Neil Caron, vice president of Freedom Mortgage in Mount Laurel, N.J. Still, a pre-approval is a snapshot of the borrower as he embarks on home shopping. Sometimes, borrowers trip up their chances for a loan by making changes in their financial life, by adding big charges to their credit cards, for instance, or taking out another loan, such as for a new car. Sugar coating can go sour Borrowers want to look good to a lender, but polishing the facts so that the truth is fuzzy doesn't benefit anyone. Be precise about all the numbers, lenders advise. And, remember that an approval is really stronger when the lender does at least a cursory verification

of your credit, income and other factors. Knowing that borrowers are often sensitive about bearing their financial souls, Jack Guttentag, who runs the website, has developed a free pre-qualification tool. "It's designed to let you see where you stand," he says. "And it will offer [links] that give information on remedying your weaknesses." Agents should spot trouble Financing also can fall through because of the property, not the borrower. "Say, for instance, the appraisal finds there is chipped paint," says David McIlvaine, a broker with Keller Williams in Ellicott City, Md. "When a buyer is getting an FHA loan, or even some conventional loans, they won't be approved until that's fixed." Experienced agents should spot such trouble before a borrower submits his formal loan application, McIlvaine says. Will sellers share the pain? No matter how careful a buyer and his agent may be, rejection can still come unexpectedly. So can buyers minimize the hurt of rejection by having sellers pick up the costs? "You can ask," says Sullivan. "But I don't think a good seller's agent would advise [the seller] to agree to it." McIlvaine adds that he has rarely seen the request, "but buyers who've been rejected before may decide that it's worth a try." © CTW Features

Mission Accomplished!

Thank You!

We achieved a special Family Christmas for wounded war veterans who serve in our armed services so that all Americans may enjoy freedom. We are proud supporters of the Wounded Warrior Project. The Mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors. The Purpose is to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of severely injured service members.

You all helped fulfill our Mission of providing the “Perfect Christmas” for our Wounded Warriors and their families. Four years ago the CARRIER FAMILY started its mission to bring Wounded Warrior Families to the Valley for the holidays to experience its magic. Thanks to your tremendous outpouring of love, time, treasure and talent, our mission was a phenomenal success.

For the Fourth Year!

December 16-20, 2011

The Valley residents and businesses rolled out the red carpet, covering every detail and satisfying all the items on the Warriors wish list. Countless elves offered the warmest welcome after a magical ride on the Polar Express to the North Pole. Generous donations allowed two families to experience the full spectrum of winter activities including skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, tubing, sleighing and sledding. What truly began as a small family project, evolved into extraordinary acts of Active Citizenship and a true merging of strangers into a family. With the help of all the wonderful people in the Mt. Washington Valley who spread the word on the Christmas Can Cure events, the CARRIER FAMILY and all its community partners hope that in future years many more families of Wounded Warriors will have the opportunity to experience the perfect Christmas.
