GLASGOW (NY Times) — Mean-spirited chants and songs are endemic in British soccer. Some chants focus on intimate details between players and their wives. Others might accuse opposing fans from economically depressed cities of being unemployed and on welfare. But Scotland is a special case because the chants reflect longstanding personal enmities that are rooted in ancient religious differences, though the differences now are more cultural than religious. Under new legislation, people convicted of soccerrelated sectarian behavior would face unlimited fines and as many as five years in prison. The law covers not only what happens in stadiums, but behavior in pubs, encounters before and after games and Internet postings. The ubiquitous police will be given an extra 1.8 million pounds to form a “football intelligence unit,” the government said. Its officers will patrol stadiums carrying cameras and recording devices, keeping the peace and gathering evidence for later use. “Clearly, you can’t go and arrest a large group of fans if they start singing a song in a football ground, as it could lead to mass disorder,” said a government spokesman. The police would be “targeting ringleaders and others involved in this behavior — then arresting them afterwards.”

France to speed withdrawal from Afghanistan ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

PARIS (NY Times) — President Nicolas Sarkozy announced Friday that France would break with his allies in NATO and accelerate the French withdrawal from Afghanistan. He said saying combat troops would leave a year early, by the end of 2013. He increased this year’s withdrawal of troops from 600 to 1,000, and said that French troops would hand over security responsibility in one of its main areas of responsibility in Afghanistan, Kapisa

Province, northeast of Kabul, beginning in March. He also said that he would press for NATO to accelerate its handover of primary security responsibilities as well. Mr. Sarkozy’s announcements, including a statement that the level of Taliban infiltration in the Afghan Army “has been underestimated,” came after a meeting here with President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan. Mr. Sarkozy said that he and Mr. Karzai agreed to ask the NATO alli-

ance to complete its handover of primary security responsibility to Afghan troops by the end of 2013, instead of the end of 2014, as NATO had agreed at its last summit meeting in late 2010. The moves followed an attack a week a go by a rogue Afghan soldier who opened fire on unarmed French troops embedded with Afghan forces on a training mission in Kapisa, killing four soldiers and wounding another 15, eight of them seriously.

(NY Times) — The American economy picked up a little steam last quarter, with output growing at an annualized rate of 2.8 percent, the Commerce Department reported Friday. The pace of growth was faster than in the third quarter, when gross domestic product expanded at an annual rate of 1.8 percent. Even so, both figures were below the average speed of economic expansion in the United States since World War II. And it would take above-average growth to recover the ground lost during

the Great Recession. “At this rate, we’ll never reduce unemployment,” said Justin Wolfers, an economist at the University of Pennsylvania. “The recovery has been postponed, again.” Still, the 2.8 percent rate is likely to be seen by many as something of a relief, given that just last summer many economists were predicting the country would soon dip back into recession. Few analysts are still forecasting a double-dip in the near term, but they say the recovery is likely to remain disappointingly sluggish.

DAMASCUS, Syria (NY Times) — Violence in Syria has escalated sharply in the past two days, with heavy bloodshed reported Friday in at least three flash points as Arab League monitors expressed exasperation and the United Nations Security Council prepared to discuss the crisis as a step toward a possible resolution condemning President Bashar al-Assad’s government. Syrian rights activists reported government troops attacking targets in the central cities of Homs and Hama and the northern city of Idlib. The opposition Local Coordination Committees, in accounts that were impossible to independently corroborate, said at least 30 people in Homs, including women and children, had been killed since Thursday. An activist with the group said that government forces, mobilized near the city’s southern approach, were shelling the restive Baba Amr and Inshaat neighborhoods. “The city is completely paralyzed. Nobody leaves his house unless it’s a real emergency, knowing that they’re risking their lives,” the activist said.

Lynch vetoes bill that allows interest rates to top 400 percent BY GARRY RAYNO THE UNION LEADER

CONCORD – Gov. John Lynch vetoed Senate Bill 160 yesterday, which would allow payday loan lenders to charge more than 400 percent interest over a year’s time. Most of the payday lenders left the state after lawmakers capped interest rate on the short-term loans at 36 percent. The bill removes the 36 percent cap on interest rates. Lynch said such rates hurt families, communities and the state’s economy. Proponents of the loans say they provide an opportunity for people with poor credit to have access to money in an emergency. “SB 160 creates a new small loan

product in New Hampshire – an installment loan – and overturns the interest rate cap for payday lenders,” Lynch wrote. “These new installment loans are essentially payday loans that would create an escalating spiral of debt for New Hampshire families that would undermine their financial security, as well as the financial well being of our communities and our economy.” He said 31 other states, including all the other five New England states, prohibit the excessive interest rates. Earlier this year, lawmakers overrode Lynch’s veto of a similar bill doing away with the 36-percent interest cap on auto title loans. SB 160 was opposed by many groups including the American

Friends Service Committee, the New Hampshire Local Welfare Administrator’s Association, AARP, the New Hampshire Department of Justice, New Hampshire Legal Assistance and a coalition of churches. Lynch said the bill also changes the oversight of the payday lenders, which along with the excessive rates will increase the “cycle of debt” for many New Hampshire families. The bill would have allowed a short-term lender to charge nominal interest of $15.50 per $100 installment, but the installments could be up to 26 weeks, resulting in annual rates of more than 400 percent Lynch notes. “On a 6-month loan with payments

every two weeks, lenders will be able to charge consumers over $1,100 to repay a $500 loan,” he wrote. “For vulnerable families, these excessive interest charges could force them further into a cycle of debt, and potentially onto public assistance.” He said the bill also requires bank examiners must provide payday lenders with advanced notice before examining its books records and documents. The banking department is also limited in its fining authority over the payday lenders, he noted. “Consumers will not receive the same level of protection from payday lenders as they do now with other providers of consumer credit,” Lynch said in his veto message.

The Snow Report: Black Mountain hosts snow sculpture competition BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

JACKSON — Touring centers and ski areas received four to six inches of snow in Thursday night and Friday’s storm before it changed over to what Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce publicist Marti Mayne whimsically called “clear snow” — a.k.a. freezing rain. “The new snow will groom nicely at ski resorts and cross country centers to add to a strong base,” said Mayne Friday afternoon, noting that partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the 30s were forecast for the weekend by the National Weaher Service out of Gray, Maine. UNH Winter Carnival; Snow Sculpture Weekend Highlights of the weekend include the University of New Hampshire Winter Carnival in Jackson and Attitash, and the the 11th annual New Hampshire

Sanctioned/Jackson Invitational Snow Sculpting competition at Black Mountain in Jackson today and Sunday. Fourteen teams from throughout the Northeast are expected to compete. Sculpting began at noon on Jan. 27, and is to continue through the weekend through noon Jan. 29. Activities are to include a bonfire for roasting of marshmallows, a scavenger hunt, and more. Admission for viewing is free; ski tickets are sold separately. For details, visit or call the chamber office at 383-9356. Alpine • Attitash (374-2368; 54 trails and nine lifts): Attitash and Wildcat marketing director Thomas Prindle said conditions were great after the storm dropped five inches of new snow.

What should be done about streetlights in North Conway Village? The debate over streetlights in North Conway Village continues. The Mount Washington Valley Preservation Association came up with plan several weeks ago to turn on some of the lights that were shut off as a cost-saving measure. The association would buy new, energy-efficient LED lights and fixtures if the town would commit to putting the money saved toward turning lights back on. But a spin-off from that discussion has been the style of lights in the village, and the placement of wreaths and flags on the fixtures. The current historic-style lights can't accommodate decorative attachments, and some selectmen don't like the way the lights look anyway. "They're hideous," said selectman Larry Martin. He would like to go back to the "cobra-head" lights. Janice Crawford, of the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce, says she just wants to see the lights that were turned off back on. "People want light," she said. This week's question is: What should be done about streetlights in North Conway Village? Call 733-5822 Saturday and Sunday and leave your comments on our machine.

Whither the GOP establishment? LEWISTON, Maine — Against all odds, against all expectations, perhaps even against all reason, the Republican presidential nomination fight is centered in Florida this week and then moves to a hopelessly complex process here in Maine next week. This is a far different contest than the Republicans conducted a few weeks, a few miles, and a political lifetime away across the border in New Hampshire. Strip the cant from the 2012 Republican nomination fight and you have a front-runner who lost two out of the first three tests and now is barely entitled to the title; a challenger in the race to be standardbearer of a family-values party who has had three wives, almost no allies and many blood enemies in his own party; and another contender who lost in his own state, considered essential to a GOP victory, by 18 points in his Senate re-election fight. In the old days a formula like that would be a summons for the political establishment to do something, or anything — step in to force implausible candidates from the race, step forward with a new contender in the lists, or step up the pressure to bring order to the proceedings. But none of that is happening, or is likely to happen anytime soon. Is it possible that in the party of the establishment there is no party establishment anymore — that in the caucus of the old guard, no one is on guard? This is the Republican question that dares not speak its name; one that suggests that the character of a political party more than a century and a half old has shifted — startlingly, significantly — in the past decade or two. Right now the Republicans seem to be avoiding the question entirely, speaking obliquely of a party establishment, but never identifying its members or even its inclinations. Indeed, Newt Gingrich, who as a former House speaker would ordinarily be regarded as a charter member of the establishment, is plainly running against the establishment. "The establishment is right to be worried about a Gingrich nomination," he said on "Meet the Press." "We are going to make the establishment very uncomfortable." But here is the secret: There is no establishment to make uncomfortable — or to make things right in a party that seems to be hungry for someone, something or anything to make things right, or at least to make things clear. "The old way of doing things in the Republican Party is gone," says former GOP Sen. Warren B. Rudman of New Hampshire. "The party is full of independent contractors, following their own instincts." Gingrich is plainly ineligible to play the part of the establishment; he has the credentials but not the temperament and, besides, is one of the contenders in the nomination fight. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts has classic establishment credentials — former governor of an important state, son of a respected business leader, revered Midwestern governor and Nixon Cabinet member, and possessor of degrees from Harvard Law and Harvard Business — but he's in the fight, too. Ordinarily, former presidents would be establishment figures, but one of them, George H.W. Bush, is frail and is to the new warriors of the GOP a symbol of easy compromise; the other, George W. Bush, is still politically radioactive. If there is a Republican establishment left, it consists of the times, rarer now

than in years past, when Robert J. Dole, Howard H. Baker Jr., and Rudman, three retired senators who stay in touch but whose average age is 85, get together for dinner. None has been in office more recently than 16 years ago. None of the other figures — not Karl Rove, George W. Bush's aide, not Charles R. Black Jr., the veteran GOP adviser, neither of whom has held major offi ce — qualifies as a party leader whose word might make mortals tremble or whose dictates might carry the voltage of a thunderbolt. The Republicans have had such figures in past decades — former nominees Dwight D. Eisenhower, Thomas Dewey and Richard M. Nixon, or House Majority Leader Charles A. Halleck, Senate Minority Leader Everett M. Dirksen, or former House Speaker Joseph Martin — but they don't have one now. Today neither Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell nor House Speaker John Boehner can play the role. Neither can speak for his entire caucus or for the entire party; both are worried about the influence of tea party irregulars in their respective houses. It may be that the modern Republican establishment has been relegated to the presidents of a few Rotary clubs in cities with populations under 100,000. The Republicans aren't alone. Four years ago, the insurgent Democratic candidate, Sen. Barack Obama, defeated the establishment candidate, Sen. Hillary Clinton, who had the support of a former president, big labor and many liberal interest groups. Usually the president of the United States automatically is regarded as an establishment figure, but Obama shirks from the role and, as a recent account of life within the First Family suggests, is uncomfortable with many of the rituals of political life, like sitting around after hours with people he detests and assuring them how important they are. But a party that has specialized in toppling the powerful, as the Democrats did until recently, doesn't need an establishment as much as one that, until recent decades, practiced a conservatism of the old definition, which was resistance to change. That is why, in the past, Republicans selected nominees such as Dewey, Nixon, Ronald Reagan, the elder Bush and Dole, all with conventional credentials and all with presidential campaigns (and in three cases a vice presidential campaign) behind them. That Republican craving for safety and stability is firmly in the past, which is why the safest and probably least unpredictable among the GOP contenders, Romney, is so insistently seeking to minimize the very establishment credentials that in 1960 or 1968 would have assured him of the nomination, probably without breaking a sweat, which is the way establishment politicians operate. "The Republicans have become much more of a grassroots party than a grass tops party," says former Reagan White House Chief of Staff Kenneth M. Duberstein. "The ground has really shifted ever since the Republicans lost the presidency." That's the whole point. In the old days, the Republicans — the grounded ones in our politics — won votes because they helped keep the ground from shifting. David M.

Special community opened their hearts To the editor: We would like to extend our most heartfelt thanks to the people of Jackson and the Mount Washington Valley for their love, kindness, sharing and support of the Christmas Can Cure program during this past holiday season. During this time our two families were united to celebrate Christmas with all of you. It was a tremendous and very emotional time for us as we were so warmly welcomed into your community. Each of you, no matter what role you might have played, endeared us to your community. We can honestly say that it takes very special people and a very special community to open their hearts the way you all did to our families. It was this that made that a difference in our lives. The week was both mentally and physically challenging for us, but you helped us through it and helped empower us to be better for it. You have all made Christmas a curing

event for us. We will never forget the look on our children’s faces or the tears of joy we held as your hospitality was showered upon us. Each and every one of you should be proud of your contributions to the program. Be safe in the knowledge that yours is a special community that sets the standard for other communities across our great nation. The Christmas Can Cure Project cannot work without your continued support and I hope that our acknowledgement here will bring more families and more businesses aboard as a project supporter. We look forward to seeing you all again and visiting the Mount Washington Valley in the future. You truly are a wonderful community. Thank you for your love and support. Sergeant Eddie Platt, Chicopee, Mass. Lieutenant Commander John Oliveira, New Bedford, Mass.

Capital gains tax is double taxation To the editor: To say someone, whether it is Warren Buffet or Mitt Romney is only paying 15 percent income tax is misleading. Capital gains tax is double taxation. As a stock owner you are an owner of a company, whether it is whole or a piece of such. If that company made $1,000 profit after expenses, you should be able to get a piece of that profit. However, the government taxes your corporation at a 35 percent tax rate, which equals $350. Now the profit that is left

is $650. You get that or part of in dividends. Now the government taxes you again (double taxation) in the form of capital gains tax of 15 percent which is $97.50. From your original investment you have paid $350.00 corporate tax (35 percent) and $97.50 for Capital gains tax of 15 percent which comes out to be $447.50. Your effective tax rate minus any smoke and mirrors that the media portraits is in reality 44.75 percent not 15 percent. Phil Gaeta Center Conway

Thanks for making the Community Giving Tree program a success To the editor: The Community Giving Tree program of Fryeburg wishes to thank the many people and businesses who helped it to be a great success. For 32 years, the project has provided gifts of clothing and toys to children who live in the towns of SAD 72. Thanks to the generosity of so may people we were able to give to 127 families resulting in 263 children and 1282 actual gifts — many of which were winter jackets, snowpants and snow boots. Special thanks go to businesses and individuals who made donations which allowed this committee to purchase items needed by these families. Also appreciation is extended to the places of business in the various towns which allowed us to place trees in their locations so that the tags

could be taken and shopped for. Finally, many thanks to all the folks who took one or more tags and shared their holiday spirit by shopping for the requested items, wrapped these gifts and delivered them back to be distributed to the families. Early in December it is quite a sight to see when all of the gifts are assembled and then distributed. Thank you’s also are extended to the many folks who came in to help sort the gifts and call the families to say their packages were ready to be picked up. Thanks to so many, there are many warm and happy children in our school district. Judy Raymond & Sarah MacGillivray, co-chairs The Community Giving Tree Committee of the MSAD 72 towns

John D. Judge to become AMC’s fourth president Feb. 2 BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

PINKHAM NOTCH — Effective Feb. 1, the 136-year-old Appalachian Mountain Club will welcome a new president. John D. Judge, 44, of Boston replaces Andy Falender, a Harvard Business School graduate and past executive director of the New England Conservatory of Music from 1975 to 1988 who has led the AMC since 1988. Falender is credited with increasing AMC membership, conservation advocacy programs, youth programs, and improving the organization’s financial solvency by turning in balanced budgets all 23 years of his tenure. Following a nine-month nationwide search by an AMC selection committee, the announcement of Judge’s appointment was made Jan. 5 by Jackson resident Laurie Gabriel, chair of AMC’s board of directors. “With his leadership background, experience and passion, John is a great fit for us,” said Gabriel, a Mount Washington Valley native whose parents once owned Camp Waukeela in Eaton and who is a Kennett High graduate. “He’s also a great guy,” said Gabriel, adding, “As part of the leadership search, we had a test in the process where a few of us took him on a hike and he passed that test with flying colors. We felt that was an important part of the process, because we feel that the next president of the AMC has to have outdoor credibility.” Vision 2020 Judge will become the fourth chief executive in the AMC’s history. He will be tasked with leading the AMC into a decade of growth and new objectives as outlined under the club’s fourpronged Vision 2020. Those objectives include: * Growing AMC’s membership from its current level of 100,000 members, advocates, and supporters to 500,000. * Increase programs to involve more children in the outdoors. * Lead regional action on trails, land protection and engaging youth in conservation. * Broaden the impact of AMC’s Maine Woods Initiative in the 100-Mile Wilderness region. “I am energized by the challenges AMC has committed to taking on over the next decade,” said Judge in a prepared statement. “Attracting 500,000 constituents, helping 500,000 kids see next page

experience wild places, fulfilling our vision for the Maine Woods Initiative, and engaging more people in our conservation and trail stewardship efforts is a tall order, but an exciting one. I am looking forward to using my experience in building partnerships to increase the impact of AMC in the region.” Diverse background Judge joins AMC with extensive nonprofit and government leadership experience, having served in executive and senior development, finance, and marketing roles. He holds a bachelor of arts in economics from Stonehill College and a master’s in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Judge serves on the boards of Northeastern University’s School of Public Policy and the Springfield Technical Community College Foundation. He cofounded the New Frontier Society of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, a non-partisan group that encourages young adult participation in public affairs. He also served as state chair of the Massachusetts Commission on Community Service and Volunteerism from 2001 to 2004. Additionally, he served as a volunteer with scouting and other youth groups. Judge is credited with transforming a financially troubled Greater Boston chapter of Habitat for Humanity into a top-performing urban affiliate. Most recently, Judge served as chief development officer for the city of Springfield, Mass., where he oversaw projects with a collective value of hundreds of millions of dollars and set the city on a path of sustainable development, including the construction of the state’s largest solar field. Judge founded and led Judge Co. LLC, focused on inner-city real estate development and construction. As president, Judge will oversee the club, which has more than 100,000 members, advocates, and supporters in 12 chapters from Maine to Washington, D.C. Both Falender and Gabriel praised Judge as he steps into the post held by Falender for the past 23 years. “John possesses an extensive understanding of management issues as well as a commitment to our mission,” said Falender. “The diversity of his nonprofit experience will be extremely valuable as AMC takes on new initiatives. I look forward to working with him to ensure a smooth transition and continue the momentum we have created in support of AMC’s long-term strategic plan, Vision 2020.” “We are excited about John’s experience, talent and passion for AMC’s mission, particularly in getting young people engaged with the outdoors,” said Gabriel. “We can’t think of anyone we would rather have leading AMC as we work to broaden and diversify our constituents, help more kids and families get outdoors, and expand our role as a conservation leader in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.” About the AMC Headquartered in Boston, the AMC advocates for the protection, enjoyment, and understanding of the mountains, forests, waters and trails in the region; offers over 8,000 outdoor trips each year; maintains over 1,500 miles of hiking trails; and hosts over 150,000 overnight guest visits at its huts and lodges. AMC operates a nearby system of trail-side huts for hikers in the White Mountains. Eight huts are located along a 56-mile-long stretch of the Appalachian Trail from Carter Notch in the East to Franconia Notch in the west. The huts offer meals, lodging and educational opportunities and are open to the public. AMC also operates shelters, camps and roadside lodges, and provides training in outdoor skills. Over the last eight years, it has purchased and conserved 66,500 acres of land in Maine’s 100-Mile Wilderness region used for outdoor recreation, education and sustainable forestry, where AMC manages over 90 miles of hiking and cross-country ski trails and three wilderness lodges open to use by the public.

A conversation with John Judge BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

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

BOSTON — In an interview Jan. 12, Judge outlined some of his goals as he prepared to step into his new post at the head of the AMC. Q: What excites you about your new position and why did you seek it out? John Judge: For me, when I saw the AMC posting, it brought together my love for the outdoors, along with what I did in Springfield regarding sustainability and the conservation of fuels for nonprofits. So, it brought together those two worlds for me. Throughout my professional life, I have been working together with different organizations — whether it be scouting, the Boston Housing Authority, the Boston Public Library where I volunteered for six years, and creating leadership programs at the JFK Library, including a mentoring program for young women aged 12 to 16 — so for me one of the biggest pieces was the draw of the 2020 Vision to get kids excited about the outdoors. Q: Given the hold that the use of technology has on young people these days, how do you propose to get them into the Great Outdoors, away from their computers? * John Judge: In an age of kids being pulled inside into the digital world, we will be pushing for ways to power down their equipment inside and power up to experience the outside. We want to get across the idea that Saturday is a great time to get outside and explore. That will help us, too, as an organization. We remind people that our organization was founded in 1876, and that it is as relevant today as it was then. We were one of the groups that helped found the White Moun-

tain National Forest [following the destruction caused by indiscriminate logging, the AMC played a key role in advocating passage of the Weeks Act by Congress in 1911, which allowed for the creation of eastern forests, including the WMNF in 1918]. So, for us to continue to grow our programs and make sure we reach out to people in the communities is important. A recent McKinsey [Global Institute] study says that by 2050, 70 percent of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. So for us in the East, we have anywhere from 55 to 70 million people from northern Maine and New Hampshire down to Washington D.C. that will continue to live in these affluent cities. We have to figure out how to connect sheer transportation in terms of public access, how do people get here, but also to get them to connect with experiences closer to home to create outdoor citizenship for folks of all ages and to get them active in the outdoors. Q: How can you reach people in this computerized age to get them outdoors? John Judge: How to connect is something we talk about five times a day. Certainly one of the creative ways for us to connect is using technology, reaching out through social networking. we currently have 15,000 fans or so on our Facebook page; the task is how to get to 150,000. So, that connection is important, and so is our ability to create dynamic collaborations. It’s a watchword for the future, not only to be sustainable but to have dynamic collaborations to help us reach more and more people. Q: How would you describe your new task in achieving the goals of 2020? see next page

ation explosion that started in the ‘60s, is there a fear of ‘loving it to death’ when it comes to the mountains? John Judge: It’s a challenge for us all. We need to not only lower our carbon footprint as an organization, but also individually. Our goal is to lower our carbon footprint by 80 percent by 2050. Public transportation, shared transportation to activities [all are part of that]. Q: Please talk about the AMC’s role as an advocate for the environment, given the challenges of the Northern Pass, budgetary government constraints regarding the forest service and other issues. John Judge: We just think the value of our public lands is irreplaceable. Six million annually come to the White Mountains, supporting the local economy. [As for the Northern Pass], we think frankly the application sent in for the Northern Pass was not sufficient. They did not address a lot of the key things they should have and did not research alternatives to what they are proposing.

John Judge: My passion is to get people outdoors, whether taking a canoe trip or hiking up Madison or to any of our other huts. Q: How would you rate the health of the organization as AMC president Andy Falender steps down? John Judge: We are at an enviable spot to be and we have so much to be thankful for. We are at a very unique launch pad to achieve our 2020 goals. We need to get us to the next level. Andy has brought us to this point. Andy is an amazing leader; he’s somebody who has taken this organization to a new level of success. The solid finances we now have; our programs, the Highland Center and the Maine Woods Initiative. It’s a phenomenal legacy. The culture of what this organization is today is thanks in large part to Andy’s leadership and ability to get many stakeholders behind the mission and moving it forward.

Garland plans to run again for Bartlett selectman BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BARTLETT — There will be a race for selectman. Ed Furlong was the first candidate to sign up on the opening day of the filing period on Wednesday, and on Friday incumbent Doug Garland announced he plans to seek a fifth three-year term on the board. "I've given it tons of thought both ways about running and not running," Garland said by phone Friday afternoon, "but my expectation is I will run again and plan to sign up next Friday. While I do reserve my option, if something were to change, as of now I definitely plan on running." Furlong, owner of Lil’ Man Snow-

mobile and Abenaki Cabin Rentals in Bartlett Village, began campaigning for the 2012 Bartlett selectman’s race last September when he publicly announced his candidacy. “I’ve got my work cut out for me,” he said in an Oct. 17 interview. “It’s going to be a tough row to hoe because I’m going up against the good old boy system. I will fight tooth and nail for that (selectman's) seat.” Leslie Mallett, town clerk for Bartlett, said the first three days of the filing period have been relatively slow. Also joining Garland and Furlong in signing up was Rob Clark, who filed for another three-year term on the school board and a one-year term as town moderator.

The filing period for town and school officials runs through Friday, Feb. 3, at 5 p.m. There are several town offices and four school offices up for grabs. Cost to sign up for office is $1, and candidates can file at the Bartlett Town Hall in Intervale. Other town positions include two three-year terms on the planning board (incumbents are Julia King and Brenda Monohan); one threeyear term as trustees of the trust funds (Beverly Shaw, who is the incumbent, filed again); two threeyear terms as library trustees (Beverly Sarapin and Marcia Burchstead are the incumbents); a one-year term as town moderator (Clark is the incumbent); and a one-year term as

town auditor (vacant). Positions on the Bartlett Zoning Board of Adjustment and the Conservation Commission are appointed by the selectmen and are not elected positions. On the school side, there are two school board seats (Clark and Mike Murphy are the incumbents). Other school positions include a one-year term as moderator (Jim Miller is the moderator pro-tempore); a one-year term as treasurer (Sheila Glines is the incumbent); and a one-year term as school clerk (Gail Paine is the clerk pro-tempore). Voting for officers will take place on Tuesday, March 13, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Bartlett Town Hall.

Kennett High Key Club announces members of the month for November BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Woman dies after falling at skating rink Former AMC huts BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — A woman died after falling while ice skating in Schouler Park on Thursday evening. Authorities have not released the woman’s name, but officials confirm she was from the area. The call came in at 5:01 p.m., according to dispatch logs, and rescuers were to the rink within minutes.

“She was unconscious approximately five minutes,” North Conway Fire Chief Pat Preece said, but then she woke up. Rescuers backboarded, fully immobilized and packaged the woman for transport, according to the logs, and she arrived at Memorial Hospital exactly half-an-hour after the call first came in. There was no indication anything serious was wrong, Preece said, but

responders took the normal precautions for anyone who takes a hard fall. “She was more embarrassed about the situation than anything.” It is unclear what happened after she arrived at the hospital, or what complications led to her emergency transport by helicopter later that evening, but she did not survive. The North Conway Community Center, which oversees the rink, was not available in time for comment.

Celso Cruz attempted-murder case dismissed BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — Charges of attempted murder against a Brazilian man have been dismissed for a second time in Carroll County Superior Court. Celso Cruz, 43, had been accused of stabbing his lover, Kenneth Osherow, on Jan. 17, 2009 at a vacation home at 19 Humphrey Street in Bartlett. After the alleged stabbing, Cruz was deemed incompetent to stand trial. But by early October of 2010, New Hampshire chief forensic examiner Dr. Daniel Comiskey had seen Cruz twice more. Comiskey saw improvement in Cruz's condition and determined that Cruz's depression problems were in remission. But that was after the June 2010 deadline to restore Cruz to competency. So, Judge Steven Houran dismissed the case against Cruz in February. The county attorney's office responded by recharging Cruz a short time later. On. Oct. 5, Houran dismissed without prejudice a charge of attempted murder and two counts of first-degree assault. "The court determines that the evidence before it is insufficient to meet the state's burden of proving that the defendant is presently competent to stand

trial," wrote Houran. Cruz's public defender Jesse Friedman is glad the longrunning case is over, and he is pleased with the outcome. "We are glad that the case is over and that all parties can move on with their lives," said Friedman. "An enormous amount of time and resources was spent on this case. It is unclear why, when even the alleged victim in the case acknowledged Celso's mental health issues from day one and wanted nothing more than to see Celso back home with his family in Brazil. We maintained throughout that Celso was incompetent and were happy that the court ultimately agreed." Cruz had also been held on a detainer lodged by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. A spokesman said Cruz is in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody pending deportation. Carroll County Attorney Tom Dewhurst said Cruz is now an issue for immigration services.

manager George Hamilton dies at 88 BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BOSTON — The transition from Andy Falender as president to John D. Judge will occur Feb. 1, just after the club's annual meeting, being held at the JFK Library in Boston Jan. 28, during which Falender's contributions will be honored. It also comes at a time when the organization is mourning the death at the N.H. Veterans Home in Tilton Jan. 26 of former huts manager George Hamilton, 88, of Concord. Hamilton took over from legendary first huts manager Joe Dodge in 1959 and served for 15 years. He once guided Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas through the AMC Hut System. Douglas later wrote about that three-day hike in an article that was published in National Geographic in 1961 and which led to the growth in the popularity of the huts and hiking in the White Mountains. Hamilton is credited for guiding the organization through that growth and overseeing with Bruce Sloat the upgrading of the huts. A former Fish and Game officer, Hamilton was appointed by then Gov. Walter Peterson to become the director of state parks following his AMC years. He later had a banking career. A spokesman for the N.H. Veterans Home said Friday that funeral plans are being handled by the Bennett Funeral Home in Concord. Funeral plans were not available as of press time.

species has a thick skull and strong neck muscles which prevent injury while feeding and drilling out nesting holes. It also has an extra-long, barbed tongue, which is sticky and has a spearlike tip to facilitate extracting insects from their hiding places in tree bark crevices. Red-bellies’ tongues can extend inches beyond the end of their beak when doing this work. When not in use, this specialized tongue is curled around the back of the head, between the skull and the skin. The red-bellied is equally at home in desolate bottomland forests or the backyards of man. In both locations, it goes about the job of cleaning up obnoxious pests such as caterpillars, beetles, spiders and bugs. Occasionally, wild fruit or garden corn will be eaten, and the seeds of dogwood and sassafras are favorite foods in the South’s fall season. The majority of their diet — about 75 percent — is made up of plant material, but they have been observed eating small reptiles, mammals, smaller bird’s eggs, and nestlings. see next page

Red-bellied woodpeckers prefer to forage in deciduous trees, but they also feed on the ground. Males tend to forage along branches that are larger in diameter than the branches chosen by females. During the winter, red-bellied woodpeckers are primarily seed eaters, and often they are seen frequenting feeding stations. I love seeing one first land on my orangish, lobster bait-bag, and start pecking at the beef kidney suet within the mesh sack before it casually moves over to the sunflower seed feeders. Tolerant of humans, it can be a regular visitor to backyard feeders, favoring their sunflower seed, suet, and fruit. Highly vocal, as are all the members of our colorful woodpecker family, the most common call is a loud, rolling churr, less sharp than that of the similar red-headed woodpecker. The bird also makes softer kek notes in short series, similar to the call of a flicker. Try listening to these bird calls on Lang Elliot’s Nature Sounds Studio page over your computer’s speakers.

extended their range northward in the past fifty years and are now found up to extreme southern Canada. This expansion is probably due in part to the red-bellies’ generalized diet since they seem to prefer vegetable matter (nuts, seeds, berries) over protein matter (insects). The Audubon Society of NH still relishes anyone reporting its presence; you can feel free to call Concord when you sight it. In my youth, I first saw this bird at Darden Scout Reservation in Virginia. Seeing it there, along with a summer tanager at this camp, let me know I was definitely in the southern woods. Now any red-bellied’s appearance always surprises me here in New Hampshire, because I know how far the species has traveled since those boy scouting days.

has developed a deep appreciation for things wild and scenic. His goal as a photographer is to capture subject matter in its natural light. He doesn’t believe in spending hours manipulating his work although he admires what can be produced by those who do. As he has gained experience as a photographer he has become more aware of the importance of light in producing an interesting image. He tries to pay more attention to seeking out lighting conditions that will do that. If the early morning light is spectacular he’s in the car and out chasing the view.

NH Theatre Awards to hold 10th annual ceremony Feb. 3

Part of his motivation to do what he does relates to the impact of good scenic photography on individuals. He believes that, done right, photographs help to heighten people’s appreciation for the environment. For Pollock, photography shifted from an avocation to a professional occupation. Pollock is currently the president of the North Country Camera Club and is a freelance photographer for The Mountain Ear newspaper. He is a juried member of the Mount Washington Valley Arts Association. Pollock’s current endeavor is to develop a line of giclee prints – wildlife

with the “days off ” caretaker and his girlfriend. Then I headed up the Huntington Ravine Fire Road a short way from there, to get the view back towards the rocky peaks of Boott Spur, where wind clouds swiftly scudded by. Finally I walked down to Pinkham in the sun. The night before I had looked at the Mount Washington Observatory’s summit forecast, and because of high winds, decided to curtail my plans to climb Mount Washington the next day. But the next morning I looked again. It appeared the high winds would be dissipating later in the day, and the temperature would

not be frigid, but in the high 30s. The temps made my decision. Why not try it, at least, and if I have to turn around before getting to the top, that would be interesting too. Perhaps more interesting that an ascent of the mountain on a perfect day. I have been turned back on Lion Head quite a few times. Once I was accompanying a group from a local climbing school as an extra guide. The group was heading to the summit for a night in the Observatory. In the thick clouds above timberline, we fought our way into the wind on the flat section above the top of Lion Head. One of the clients paused to get something out of his see next page

extra-large backpack. He took it off, put it down, and let go of it for a split second. A gust grabbed it, and it blew out into the void over Tuckerman Ravine, and was gone. It wasn’t long after that, that the leader decided to turn back. Maybe someone else would have decided that the group should continue, and tough it out. But it was his call. The group was a little shaken by the pack incident. He assessed the group. When you are alone, of course, you have only yourself to assess. Wednesday morning, having left word with my usual spotters, I headed up Route 16 to Pinkham Notch Camp. There was no wind visible in the trees, though the mountain ahead was covered with cloud. I started up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail at eight, and had to put on MIROspikes immediately on the icy trail. But a short way up the mountain the ice was replaced by crunchy snow that was perfect for traction. There still was no wind, and the coolness made for perfect fast hiking. I didn’t see anyone until I had turned off the Tuckerman Ravine Trail onto the Huntington Ravine Fire Road. An eight of a mile down the fire road, where the Winter Lion Head Trail turns left, a lone mountaineer bent over his pack and skis. He was from Portland. He told me his story. He had arrived at Pinkham at 5:30 a.m. He wasn’t able to sign in the climber log, as the Trading Post was closed. But he said that he doesn’t do that anyway. Ok&hellip; He had skinned up the Tuck Trail and climbed Mount Washington via Lion Head (more than likely stashing his skis in the woods near where I met him). He said the worst wind above tree line was on the slopes below the top of Lion Head, and that the summit cone had helped protect him from the west wind further up. Anyway, he gave me some hope of getting to the top, with a nice tussle with the wind along the way. We parted and I continued, put on my full crampons at the bottom of the steep part of the trail, and

kept going. Remarkably, the wind held off in the stunted trees. I wore only a light pile jacket right up to treeline, where I put on outer layers. Then, walking out into the wind on the cloud covered tundra was like hitting a wall of oncoming traffic. It was a struggle to get up to the top of Lion Head. But at least the air wasn’t frigid, which made it almost enjoyable. The wind was steady with unexpected gusts. At one point, I had my right foot up on a shelf of ice, and was ready to transfer weight. A gust send me off balance, and I fell and rolled downhill a few feet (only later in the valley, did I find a slight bruise on my right wrist). Nearing the top of Lion Head, I headed for an east facing shelf out of the wind there. I relaxed, ate a carrot, and put on a vest under my parka, adding an additional layer of warmth underneath. Then it was time to test the waters above Lion Head. I climbed up to the top and tried to move out on the flats beyond. But no&hellip; As expected, the wind was dramatically stronger, and forced me to stagger dangerously. Any passion for the summit quickly drained away, and I started down. The walk back to timberline took a lot of care — there was little diminishment of the wind. But descending gave me the right perspective for looking around. An amazing combination of light and dark filed the air. Clouds ripped by, heading down the mountain. In the distance a great white cloud mass rose about Wildcat, and the ski area below was in a deep darkness. I hit the trees and took off outer layers, and wound down the trail. It wasn’t until I paused just below the steep part, that I noticed the gorgeous warm sunny day that I had descended into. “It’s today, my favorite day.” Later at the Harvard Cabin, the friendly caretakers told me that the wind on the mountain had actually increased over the course of the morning. That made sense. The guy from Portland made it to the top early. But I was satisfied with the day.

By Holiday Mathis haven’t yet had time to investigate. If only your gift had come with explicit instructions that included timing. Alas, it’s on you to take initiative and follow the impetus to move. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have distanced yourself from the one who has acted in self-interest, much to your dismay. Your friend senses that he’s done something to upset you, but he’ll never fully “get it” unless you spell things out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Filter out the superfluous, and focus on what is truly important. Much of the cosmic racket is caused by others giving their opinion just to feel heard. It makes for some unnecessary distractions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will be quick to sort out what is going on inside you, be it in your family, education or social life. However, maintaining a willingness to take action to direct the process consciously will be a challenge. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll enjoy money management as an activity in its own right. You like to feel on top of financial affairs, and it will feel good to know, to the exact number, what you have to work with. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 28). You know the right course of action because you feel it in your bones. It’s as though your skeleton is magnetized to success. Seek supportive personal relationships in February. Build your team. You’ll be a hero in March. May is your chance to bond with kin. June brings domestic improvement. Capricorn and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 43, 19 and 50.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Being a good friend takes a lot of effort, most but not all of which is joyful. Your expectations of your friends will make a difference now. Dare to set a precedent. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll do interesting and respectable work. Look at what you’ve accomplished, and appreciate it. Your solid character is what makes this all possible. Acknowledge yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Lately, many businesses want you to take a survey and give a good score regarding your experience. Does anyone really receive prize money from giving an opinion? Well, if anyone will, it’s you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your life stories are interesting and varied. You should write them down. Really, you should! A story you’ve told many times will now find its best audience. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Whatever you put in, so shall you get out. Actually, that’s not entirely true. You’re putting such intensity into your work now that you’re likely to get out three times what you put in. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your sense of loyalty will be highlighted as you work in a small group. There’s a deal on the table to consider. Unless the arrangement will benefit the entire group, you have no interest. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Close your eyes and soften your heart. Your receptivity will now add what your logical brain could not: a certain kind of sweetness that helps you experience a more vivid and joyful world. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You were given a very special gift that you

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 28, 2012— Page 29

Today is Saturday, Jan. 28, the 28th day of 2012. There are 338 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff from Cape Canaveral, killing all seven crew members, including schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe. On this date: In 1547, England’s King Henry VIII died; he was succeeded by his 9-year-old son, Edward VI. In 1813, the novel “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen was first published in London, anonymously. In 1853, Cuban revolutionary Jose Marti was born in Havana. In 1909, the United States withdrew its forces from Cuba as Jose Miguel Gomez became president. In 1912, abstract painter Jackson Pollock was born in Cody, Wyo. In 1915, the United States Coast Guard was created as President Woodrow Wilson signed a bill merging the Life-Saving Service and Revenue Cutter Service. In 1916, Louis D. Brandeis was nominated by President Woodrow Wilson to the Supreme Court; Brandeis became the court’s first Jewish member. In 1945, during World War II, Allied supplies began reaching China over the newly reopened Burma Road. In 1962, the last of Washington, D.C.’s streetcars made its final run. In 1973, a cease-fire officially went into effect in the Vietnam War. In 1980, six U.S. diplomats who had avoided being taken hostage at their embassy in Tehran flew out of Iran with the help of Canadian diplomats. In 1982, Italian anti-terrorism forces rescued U.S. Brigadier General James L. Dozier, 42 days after he had been kidnapped by the Red Brigades. One year ago: Chaos engulfed Egypt as protesters seized the streets of Cairo, battling police, burning down the ruling party’s headquarters and defying a military curfew. Hundreds gathered at NASA’s launch site to mark the 25th anniversary of the Challenger disaster. Police in Tampa, Fla., arrested Julie Schenecker in the shooting deaths of her 13-year-old son Beau and 16-year-old daughter Calyx; Schenecker allegedly told detectives she’d killed her children for being “mouthy.” Today’s Birthdays: Musician-composer Acker Bilk is 83. Actor Nicholas Pryor is 77. Actor Alan Alda is 76. Actress Susan Howard is 70. Actress Marthe Keller is 67. Actress-singer Barbi Benton is 62. Actress Harley Jane Kozak is 55.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m a freshman in high school and my sister is a junior. She plays violin in our school orchestra (first chair), gets straight A’s in all her classes (honors and AP courses) and is gorgeous and popular. I, on the other hand, am socially awkward, spend most of my time with my nose jammed in a book, barely get A’s in my few honors courses and play in the school band. I have a few close friends, but most of them aren’t in any of my classes so I eat lunch alone. I don’t want to be popular; I just want to stop being jealous of my sister. How can I do that when anything I do that’s good is overshadowed by all her accomplishments? -- LIVING IN THE SHADOWS IN ILLINOIS DEAR LIVING IN THE SHADOWS: It would be helpful if you would stop comparing yourself to your sister. You are an individual, and individuals do not all blossom at the same rate. You have accomplishments you should be proud of. You play an instrument, you are in some honors courses, and you are a READER. The time you spend with your “nose jammed in a book” will pay off later because you are developing your mind. I recommend you find an area of interest that your sister hasn’t tried, and develop that. It’s a way to excel at something in your own right, and make some new acquaintances so you aren’t lost in the glare of your sister’s spotlight. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 35-year-old woman. My boyfriend of two years and I are having issues because of his irresponsibility. He’s a great guy with a heart of gold, but he can’t keep a job. He has quit the same job three times within the last 12 months and now is fully unemployed.

I have been confiding in a female friend who happens to be a lesbian. Her understanding and compassion have brought us a lot closer than I could have ever imagined. Honestly, I am not attracted to women, but there’s something going on in my heart for her. She knows how I feel and has expressed interest in taking our friendship to a different level, but I’m not sure I can do it. Homosexuality is not accepted in my family, and I wouldn’t be comfortable about being open in public with another woman. Can you help me decide what to do? -- ANONYMOUS IN ALABAMA DEAR ANONYMOUS: You may not be attracted to women, but you appear to be attracted to this one. Your disappointment in your boyfriend’s inability to hold a job is not the issue here. The issue is your fear of your family’s disapproval and your embarrassment about being open about your attraction if it turns out to be more powerful than you want to admit. Whether you ignore your feelings or follow through on them, you will pay a price. My advice is be true to yourself, but make sure you think long and hard before acting. DEAR ABBY: I am recently divorced and have chosen to go back to using my maiden name. The divorce was a long time in coming and, frankly, I’m happy about it. What’s bothering me is the reaction I get from most people about my name change. Many of them assume that a name change equals marriage -- so I am often congratulated. What lighthearted response can I give to those folks to set them straight? -- UNATTACHED IN ARLINGTON, TEXAS DEAR UNATTACHED: Say, “Thank you for the congratulations, but this is the name I was born with.”

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860

And don’t forget, there’s a free one week’s pass on the bus for anyone who needs a ride. Some people who went to vote in the primary earlier this month seem to have faced a problem. Believing they were registered undeclared, they asked for a particular ballot only to be told they couldn’t have it because they were registered as either a Republican or a Democrat. In order to make sure this problem does not occur again (in the September primary) you must reregister with the supervisors of the checklist before that date. Call the office to find out when the supervisors will next meet. I will put it in the column when I learn the date as well. Tin Mountain: Today from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. join artist Nancy Cassidy for a pastel painting workshop. Bring an apron or old shirt. Check to see if there is still availability at 447-6991. Material cost is $15. On Tuesday from 6-9 p.m., Mount Washington Observatory’s meteorological staff will provide an in-depth look at how weather on the high peaks shapes the alpine zone as well as how data collection using Mesonet system is aiding further studies of alpine ecology. There is a $15 charge for members and $20 for non-members. Next Saturday there will be field guide program to recognize the characteristics that define tree species. Join naturalist Michael Wojtech and become better connected with the landscape and improve your winter tree identification skills. The fee is $15 for members and $20 for non-

members. Gibson Center: AARP Income Tax Assistance will be available for low to middle income people over 60 at the center. Call 356-3231 to set up your free half-hour assistance visit.

Both shows begin at 1 p.m. Don’t forget Tuesday is also the Snow Sculpture Ride to Jackson. Call 356-3231 to reserve your seat on the bus.

Arthur Leavitt cut his hand badly on a piece of glass trying to remove a broken window in the garage door. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery and that the hand he hurt is not his dominant hand. After all, that would make eating and writing quite a problem. Last week my grandchildren were here to enjoy the winter sports. They went skiing on Saturday and tubing on Sunday. I must admit the weather was too cold for me to watch, but they had a good time. Another stormy pre-weekend is upon us. Keep warm and safe and have a great week.

Local student learningsustainability and green building techniques at Plymouth State University

PLYMOUTH –Amidst Plymouth State University’s tall brick residence halls and academic buildings filled with the latest high-tech conveniences stands a small wooden shed. Despite its size and unassuming appearance, it is providing a valuable, hands-on lesson in environmental sustainability for students. “It’s part of a three-credit class called Sustainable Structures,” said Steve Whitman, an adjunct geography professor who is overseeing the project. “Throughout the semester, students had to plan and design this building, learn how to source the sustainable materials like building timber and the mortise and Pictured above, and right, tenon joinery techniques.

The 250 square-foot structure, the first-ever student-constructed campus building, will used as an outbuilding to store gardening tools, bicycles, skis and snowboards. The shed will also be harvesting rainwater to use in the adjoining garden and there will be a "living roof" on the north side, where vegetables can be grown. During the past year, Plymouth State has been

recognized regionally and nationally for its environmental awareness and sustainability efforts. Business NH Magazine awarded PSU’s Savage Welcome Center and Hanaway Rink the 2011 Lean and Green Building Award, recognizing the facility for how its design and construction incorporated cost containment and sustainability, particularly with the savings and energy efficiency of its operation through the closed loop geothermal heating/cooling design. Plymouth State University has also been recognized in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 311 Green Colleges, a compilation of the most environmentallyresponsible higher education institutions in the United States and Canada. As criteria for inclusion, the guide considers an institution’s commitment to LEED building certification, environmental literacy programs, formal sustainability committees, use of renewable energy resources, and recycling and conservation programs.

North Conway Library book group to discuss 'Still Alice' The North Conway Library’s TGIF Book Group will read “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova and discuss it on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 10:30 a.m. at the library. This is an open group. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are a library member and whether or not you have finished the book. "Still Alice" is a compelling novel about a 50-year-old woman's sudden descent into early onset Alzheimer's disease, written by Lisa Genova, who holds a Ph. D in neuroscience from Harvard University. Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children and a house on the Cape, is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her

memory begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease. Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of self is being stripped away. In turns heartbreaking, inspiring and terrifying, "Still Alice" captures in remarkable detail what's it's like to literally lose your mind. The TGIF Book Group is an open book discussion group that reads both fiction and nonfiction and meets on the first Thursday or Friday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the library in North Conway Village. The next book to be discussed will be “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett on Friday, March 2. Contact the North Conway Library at 356-2961 for more information or to reserve your copy of "Still Alice" and/ or "The Help."

Consider donating your slightly used clothing to Carriage Thrift Shop I was listening to the local news this morning and they claimed that folks who have Direct TV might end up missing the Super Bowl due to a disagreement between Direct TV and the corporation that owns the station carrying the game. This would not be a major issue in my life but for many ardent football fans it’s a whole different story. Heaven help the executives at Direct TV if they don’t find a solution. Good luck gentlemen! As I already mentioned, our annual Valentine’s Auction is coming up on Thursday, Feb. 9. We’ve received some wonderful donations from our local businesses and everyone here at Gibson wants them to know how grateful we all are for their generosity. The live auction will include a week-long trip thru RCI and another thru Interval – anywhere in the world! R&R Woodworkers

The cost is still $10 per person which includes a wonderful hors d’oeuvres buffet, a silent auction loaded with wonderful items, a live auction with even more great items, a cash bar and a really terrific time. Reservations are suggested so please call 356-3231. Mark your calendars. We look forward to seeing you there. I also want to remind everyone that if your closets or bureaus are getting a little cluttered you might want to consider donating your slightly used clothing to our Carriage Thrift Shop.

Don’t sweat it!



I’m a worrywart. I learned it from my mother and she learned if from hers. I’m sure this longstanding tradition continues on up (down?) our family tree. There are countless books, tapes, programs, videos, classes and other educational devices that extol the benefits of being worryfree. And there is no question that most of them are pointing us in the right direction. There is a pile of truth behind the notion that worrying never solved anything. Stressing about something has never altered its inevitability. Wow, I think I got a little philosophical there, sorry. The point is, life is full of bumps and bruises but worrying about where they may come from will change nothing. Right out of the gate, I would like to clarify that there is a vast difference between worrying or stressing about some future event and logically planning or strategizing about it. I don’t want to encourage, nor will I ever adopt, the menJason Robie tality of sliding through life without looking ahead. A couple weeks back I mentioned Mr. Flanagan, my driver’s education instructor’s advice. Essentially encouraging us to look beyond the hood of the car and focus our attention down the road. This tends to keep the car on a smoother path and deters the driver from adjusting the steering wheel every couple of seconds. I would reiterate that sentiment for today and simply add that while looking ahead, not only should we make the effort to not worry about what “may” happen, we should be erring on the side of optimism. Rhonda Byme’s book "The Secret" covers the power of positive imagery well enough that I won’t belabor it here. I’m on this kick today because I’m currently neck-deep in multiple transactions on both sides of the proverbial table. With a real estate transaction and all the different people and factors involved, it is rarely a perfectly smooth ride. This is not to say that there are always insurmountable issues or problems, but more so the inevitable bumps along the road. What I’m slowly learning and trying to integrate into my life is this pattern of being prepared and letting the process work itself through. My worrying about it will never impact the outcome. I will be the first to say that the outcome is not always what you wanted. My friends needed to get a signature from one of the homeowners on their road in order to get a mortgage. Something about a private road and liability concerns. (I know you are as surprised as I was that it had to do with the threat of future lawsuits.) After months of finagling, jumping through hoops, phone calls and visits, the homeowner would not sign. All was seemingly lost. If you have been reading along for the past few months, you know these folks have been working rather hard to buy this house. This was one more hurdle that needed to be overcome. Some creative work by the mortgage broker and a very amiable seller and they are back on the path to home ownership. After all they have been through, their initial reaction could have been to simply give up at this last challenge. But they stayed positive, see ROBIE page 42

Weather the weather This week’s Home of the Week, on Newmans Road in Fryeburg, is situated on six acres.

FRYEBURG — When the weather gets frightful, this lovely Cape Cod home will keep you warm and protected. It is a classic style now taken for granted, yet it was Yankee ingenuity that came up with this design to weather anything New England has to offer. As you enter this home, a spacious screened porch serves as a mudroom and sunny locale for those lazy summer days. From here you find a large kitchen on your left and a living room on your right warmed by a super-efficient pellet stove. As you continue through there is a firstfloor master bedroom on your right plus a computer office room on your left. A full bath completes the first floor. Should you decide to watch a movie or have a large gathering you may go downstairs to a great family room also warmed by a woodstove.

asked a few more questions and worked through it. Worrying about whether the guy would sign the paper or whether this was the final nail in the coffin of their purchase would have accomplished nothing and moved them no closer to owning this home. This is also a testament to the lending professional. She understands that my friends can afford this home and are quite motivated to make it theirs. Rather than give up and move on to the next buyer, she is a solution finder and works to make deals happen. She does not spend her time worrying about what “could” go wrong. From where I sit, the potential for stress is pretty strong. In this rebuilding real estate market, I have a buyer for one of my listings and a very limited number of contingencies. My struggle, in this and all of my deals, has been to stay focused on the positive and not worry about every little thing that might go wrong. Will they get financing? Will the radon levels be OK? Will the home inspector find something wrong (and expensive to fix)? And then every one of those factors can have their own pieces to add to the pile. If the radon is high (and it was), can we get it mitigated in time for closing? Who is going to pay for it? Will the buyers walk if the sellers don’t offer to pay? OK, you get the point. What I’m working on is making my life a little less stressful and trying not to worry about every little detail. At the end of the day, it won’t help one bit. Will things still go wrong even if you remove that stress from your mind? Of course. This is life

Will things still go wrong even if you remove that stress from your mind? Of course. This is life and life presents plenty of challenges.

The seller’s home is brand new, so naturally the inspector didn’t find any issues.

Realtors’ association applauds Obama plan to streamline refinancing process The following is a statement by National Association of Realtors president Moe Veissi: “The National Association of Realtors commends President Obama for his remarks in support of homeowners and the struggling housing market during tonight’s State of the Union address. As leading advocates for homeownership, Realtors know that restoring the health of the housing market is the only way to achieve a broader economic recovery. “Realtors stand ready to help Congress and the administration implement Obama’s proposal to significantly reduce monthly mortgage payments by streamlining the refinancing process. But beyond that, we must make housing a national public policy priority. Realtors believe that more must be done to stem the rising inventory of foreclosed homes and address the lack of available and affordable mortgage financing, which is inhibiting a meaningful housing market recovery. “Our families, communities, the housing market and economy all suffer when people lose their home to foreclosure. Realtors are calling upon the Obama administration, Congress and lenders to help keep more people in their homes by taking more aggressive steps to modify loans and help homeowners significantly reduce their monthly mortgage payments. “Realtors also urge the government

and lenders to streamline the often time-consuming and inefficient short sales process and to quickly approve reasonable offers when a family is absolutely unable keep their home. Keeping people in their homes and reducing foreclosures will help minimize the negative impact of distressed properties on home values and neighborhoods. “Expanding financing opportunities could also help reduce excess inventories of distressed properties. Increased fees and higher down payments are making it harder for many creditworthy home buyers and investors to obtain financing, thwarting the sale of distressed properties and prolonging the impact those homes have on local markets.” “While we are beginning to see early signs of stabilization in the housing market, NAR calls on Congress and the Obama administration to come together and make housing a priority issue. In this vein, we urge the White House to host a national housing summit to encourage a broad discussion among stakeholders to help formulate and advance policies that move the country toward a real housing and economic recovery.” The National Association of Realtors is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Getting due credit: Those monthly rent checks might help boost creditworthiness BY MARILYN KENNEDY MELIA CTW FEATURES

Does your landlord love you because you’re always on time with the rent? Well, your good reputation may spread to others, like credit card issuers. That’s because there’s a movement underway to include rental payment history in your credit report. “It’s fantastic” to have rents included, says John Ulzheimer, president of consumer education for Many millions of young adult renters and others who don’t have many credit accounts, as well as renters who’ve previously had financial difficulties, could boost their credit rating through on-time rent payments, Ulzheimer says. Here, a look at who’s looking at rent payments: The Count Begins Experian, one of the three major creditreporting bureaus, began reporting on 8 million renters last year through its subsidiary RentBureau. Another major bureau, Equifax, reports that it does not collect rental data, and TransUnion, the other big bureau, says that it has rental information for tenantscreening use by landlords only. While 8 million is a big number, it’s remains only a small portion of the many millions of renters nationwide. Currently, Experian is collecting rental data only from property managers, who usually work for larger-scale apartment complexes. “We’re working on a partnership that would allow individual landlords to participate as well,” reports Brannan Johnston, vice president of Experian’s RentBureau. If you’re not one of those 8 million, it’s likely a credit report compiled by CoreLogic, a consumer information firm based in Santa Ana, Calif., will have information about when you take a lease – in addition to any subsequent eviction or collection notices — but not monthly pay-

ment data. Moreover, Fair Isaac Corp., the firm that develops FICO credit scores, is working with CoreLogic to introduce a numerical score that indicates credit worthiness using this information. The Thin Are Bulking Up It may seem that credit cards are more American than apple pie, many people have no or limited credit. Last year, Experian included only positive rental payments in its report but this year is including negative information, too. Because they added in only positives, consumers with “thin” credit — meaning two or fewer credit-related items on their records — tended to show a significant boost in their credit score, relates Johnston. For those with many credit items on reports, there was “less general score movement,” he says. Lenders Take a Look If renters apply for a mortgage someday, the lender will “track down your rental payments one way or another,” asserts Neil Caron, vice president of Freedom Mortgage in Mount Laurel, N.J.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 28, 2012— Page 45

Usually, lenders call landlord or management companies for the information, but having a score or credit report that reflects the data will make it easier, Caron adds. Both CoreLogic and Experian say their scores will be used by a variety of credit-extending firms, not just mortgage lenders. When Is ‘Late?’ When rent isn’t paid on the defined due date, “it’s legally late,” says Janet Portman, an attorney and co-author of “Every Tenant’s Legal Guide, 7th edition” (Nolo Publishing, 2012}. However, “some states [have laws] that give you a grace period of two to five days,” she says. When landlords report late pays, their statement is duly recorded by the bureau. The fact that landlords can report late pays without input from a renter disturbs both Portman and Chi Chi Wu, an attorney with the National Consumer Law Center. “In a lot of jurisdictions, it is a tenant’s legal right to withhold rent if something is wrong, like the hot water isn’t working,” Wu says.

Home is where the vote is

The majority of Americans are saying, Read our lips: We want tax incentives. At least when it comes to promoting homeownership, according to a survey of 1,500 likely voters recently released on behalf of the National Association of Home Builders. The survey shows that three-fourths of voters — both renters and homeowners — believe it’s appropriate and reasonable for the federal government to provide tax incentives to promote homeownership. Along party lines, the sentiment is felt by 84 percent of Democrats and 71 percent of both Republicans and Independents. On the mortgage front, two-thirds of respondents say the federal government should help buyers afford longterm (30-year), fixed-rate loans. With that, 73 percent of respondents oppose eliminating the mortgage-interest deduction, a position held by 77 percent of Republicans and 71 percent of

both Democrats and Independents. Sixty-eight percent of respondents said they would be less likely to vote for a congressional candidate who proposed abolishing the deduction. Among the poll’s other major findings: • 96 percent of homeowners say they are happy to own their home; 84 percent of owners who are “underwater” — owing more then their home is worth — felt the same. • 79 percent of owners would advise a family member or close friend to own; 69 percent of underwater owners would offer the same advice. • 74 percent said that despite the ups and downs of the housing market, owning is the best investment they can make. • Nearly seven in 10 voters who currently do not own a home said buying a home was a goal. © CTW Features


No clear answer to window replacement BY PETER G. MILLER CTW FEATURES

QUESTION: We are considering selling our home within the next two years. The existing doublehung windows need to be re-glazed and should really be replaced with energy-efficient windows. Knowing we will not be in this house long term, should we replace the windows now or let the next owner’s put in what they want? ANSWER: The real answer has to do with other sellers. What does it take to quickly market a home in your community for a good price? Are new windows expected? Or do homes readily sell with the windows they have? There are three strategic choices: 1. Do nothing because it will not impact your sale prospects. 2. Get new windows because it

will raise the value of your home, cut energy costs and make the property more competitive when you sell. 3. Offer the home for sale as-is. If it does not sell quickly then market it with a $5,000 credit (or whatever the right number is) for new windows. QUESTION: I have been approved for a mobile home mortgage – except for my low credit score. What can I do? ANSWER: Don’t buy at this time. Even if you were to somehow get a loan the interest rate would be steep and a high monthly cost would not be good for your financial situation. The better alternative is to pay down bills, make sure all monthly payments are made in full and on time, do not borrow more on credit cards and build up your credit profile. You will then be able to improve your credit and thus qualify for financing at a better rate.
