Mom, you’re one tough art critic


(NY Times) — After careful consideration, Jessica Hanff has found the ideal spot for the art that her 4-year-old daughter, Elisabeth, brings home from preschool: the trash can. “We’re getting two to four pieces of crayon drawing a day,” said Ms. Hanff, a 36-year-old operations manager for an academic research institute. On a recent Tuesday, Ms. Hanff began sorting through a few dozen of Elisabeth’s drawings, stacked in the mudroom of the family’s Washington home. “These are printouts off the computer, colored in,” she said. “C is for Cat! And she’s scribbled some things on it. This is Dora the Explorer.” Ms. Hanff stopped to observe the purplish rings that Elisabeth had marked around Dora’s eyes. “It looks like someone slapped her in the face. She’s got these big shiners.” Ms. Hanff is always on the lookout for “exceptional” drawings. But this entire batch would soon be archived in the rubbish bin. “I’m not sentimental about those at all,” she said. “It’s my job to avoid raising a hoarder, and I’m leading by example.” But Elisabeth has been known to fi sh her drawings out of the trash and present them to her mother. “I’ll say, ‘Oh, thank you,’ ” Ms. Hanff said. “We’ll have a discussion. I’m not callous. But once she turns away, often I’ll toss it out again.”

Mubarak orders ministers to resign but Ireland will backs armed response to Egypt protests dissolve CAIRO (NY Times) — President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt appeared on television early Saturday morning and ordered his government to resign, but backed his security forces’ attempts to contain the surging unrest around the country that has shaken his three-decadelong authoritarian rule. He did not offer to step down himself and spent much of his speech explaining the need for stability, saying that while he

was “on the side of freedom,” his job was to protect the nation from chaos. In Washington, President Obama held a news conference and said he had spoken to Mr. Mubarak immediately after his televised comments, and pressed the Egyptian president to live up to his promise to guard both security and freedom for the Egyptian people. “He has a responsibility to give meaning to those words,” Mr.

Obama said, adding that his administration has stressed that Mr. Mubarak must enact political reforms. In a short, but strongly worded speech, Mr. Obama also called on Egypt to cease blocking access to the Internet, and called on protesters to remain nonviolent. Earlier in the day, his spokesman said Egypt’s $1.5 billion aid package would be reviewed if the protesters were dealt with harshly.

25 years later, McAuliffe’s memory stills soars Nearly everyone who was of school age or older in 1986 vividly remembers the day when the space shuttle Challenger burst into fl ames just 73 seconds after takeoff, claiming the lives of all seven astronauts aboard — including Christa McAuliffe, who was to be the fi rst teacher in space. Today marks the 25th anniversary of the Challenger disaster. Around the country, teachers — some of them classroom veterans, others too young to recall those terrible moments -- will describe the day’s historical significance to their students. And schools, universities, and space-

focused education organizations will commemorate McAuliffe and her fellow crew members with both large-scale events and small tributes. In remembering McAuliffe, many educators highlight her abiding dedication to the teaching profession. Dennis Van Roekel, president of the National Education Association, remembered that throughout the media blitz before the shuttle launch, McAuliffe, an NEA member, held true to her roots as a teacher. “She spoke to audiences from the viewpoint of a teacher who taught kids,” he said. —Courtesy of The Union Leader

Parliament LONDON (NY Times) — Two months after Ireland joined Greece in accepting an international bailout for its debt-wracked economy, the political reckoning for the Dublin government entered a decisive phase on Friday with the announcement that Parliament would be dissolved on Tuesday ahead of a general election. No date for the election was set, but aides to Prime Minister Brian Cowen, whose political career has been effectively ended by the financial crisis, indicated that the likely day was Feb. 25. The vote will come a year earlier than normal in the Irish political calendar, forced by what has amounted to a meltdown of the Cowen government’s authority as Ireland has plummeted from a decade of unprecedented boom to the brink of bankruptcy and a $114 billion international bailout. If recent opinion polls are a guide, the Fianna Fail party, which replaced Mr. Cowen as its leader on Wednesday with the former foreign minister, Micheal Martin, faces a

Super Bowl trip has lasted 45 years for Maine man

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 29, 2011— Page 3


KENNEBUNK, Maine — The majority of football fans would love to go to just one Super Bowl in their lifetime. Kennebunk’s Don Crisman has been to all 44 of the championship games. What started in 1967, when he attended the inaugural game in Los Angeles with a friend from Denver,has grown into an annual tradition for the past 45 years that gained national attention last fall with Crisman being featured in a television commercial. Crisman is one of only four football fans who have been to all the previous 44 Super Bowls, joining Tom Henschel of Tampa, Fla.; Robert Cook of Brown Deer, Wis.; and Larry Jacobson of San Francisco. The four have been featured in a Visa commercial for the past four months, promoting Visa’s Super Bowl Trip for Life Sweepstakes. “We refer to the photo in the commercial with us all lined up as Mount Rushmore,” Crisman said with a laugh. “The commercial was fi lmed in Tampa Bay last August, and it was 96 degrees in the shade. Visa then came to each of our houses for more. I am guessing they took like 30 hours of film and, as best I can tell, they have used about 4½ minutes.” Crisman, who said he hopes Visa will run a similar commercial next year, has heard from many long-lost friends since the commercial fi rst aired but doesn’t understand why so much attention has come with it. “I look at myself as a fanatic football fan,” Crisman said. “I am just a football fan who enjoys the game and I have followed a dream. I never thought (the Super Bowl) would be as big as it is, and I never thought I would get this far.” The Super Bowl journey for Crisman began when he and his wife left their Smithfield, R.I., home in 1964 and moved to Denver. Crisman became friends with a man named Stan Whittaker, who worked at a bank that happened to do business with the Denver Broncos. Crisman said Super Bowl tickets were not

difficult to obtain in the early years, and the bank, which had more than 20 season tickets for the Broncos, gave Whittaker tickets to the game. Crisman said he and Whittaker received tickets from the same bank for the next 19 Super Bowls. “Tickets were so easy to come by back then and they were only $12,” Crisman said. “Face value last year was $900 for the cheap seats.” Crisman’s worst seat at a Super Bowl was actually at one of his favorite games — Super Bowl XXXVI, when the New England Patriots beat the St. Louis Rams, 20-17, on Adam Vinatieri’s 48-yard field goal as time expired. “We could stand up and touch the roof of the Superdome,” Crisman said. “But, you know what; we were there and there is really no bad seat at a Super Bowl.” Another favorite for Crisman was Super Bowl XXXVIII, when the Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers, 32-29, at Reliant Stadium in Houston. “I felt that game was one of the most exciting football games that I’ve ever seen, and my team was in it, which adds to the excitement,” Crisman said. “Whoever had the ball last was going to win that game.”

A pedestrian, a 23-year-old female, was seriously hurt Friday night when she was struck by a vehicle on Route 16 in North Conway, across from the Wildflowers Inn. The woman was transported to Memorial Hospital. No other information was immediately available. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTOS)

Collaborative art exhibit now on display at the Goldberg Gallery FRYEBURG — “American West,” a collaborative art exhibit showcasing work by local artists Josef Keller of Fryeburg and Heather MacLeod of Brownfi eld, is currently on display at the Goldberg Gallery in the Bion R. Cram Library at Fryeburg Academy. The artists have selected an eclectic mix of native characters, animals, spiritual imagery and colorful landscapes to entice and engage viewers of all ages. There are cowboys and Indians, deserts and sky, horses and buffalo. This multimedia show includes work in pencil, acrylic, watercolor, metal, collage and airbrushed enamels on paper, canvas, wood and slate. The duo of Keller and MacLeod’s work spans the gamut from bold to beautiful, realism to abstraction and silly to serious. Both artists have been inspired by the imagery of the American West. Keller credits the years he lived in Tucson, Arizona and Taos, New Mexico as heavily influencing his artistic style and vision. MacLeod has always been drawn to the beauty and philosophy of the Native culture. Included in this display are common themed works spanning their early years to recent

Saturday, Jan. 22 • After a nearly snowless winter last year, a succession of storms has snowmobilers — and snowmobile rental businesses — revved up. • County commissioners thought they were done with the sheriff’s union contract, but the sheriff says not so fast. The sheriff wants to hire a lawyer to redo the contract, which he calls “fatally flawed.” • Winter weather has forced the rescheduling of several high school sports games. Tuesday, Jan. 25 • Business owners along the North Conway strip are unhappy with selectmen’s latest cost-saving step of not clearing the sidewalks along one side of the road. • The coldest weather of the season follows a report by University of New Hampshire that 2010 was the warmest year on record. • Journal from Iraq: The road is the scariest place in Iraq, says reporter Erik Eisele.


What should towns be doing to promote workforce housing? The Mount Washington Valley Housing Coalition held a breakfast forum recently to discuss the issue of workforce housing. The coalition was formed four years ago to help developers and communities create housing that is affordable to people who live and work in the valley. “This is about the vitality of our community,” said Evelyn Whelton, a member of the coalition board. “This is about bringing young professionals here with their families who can participate in the community.” Whelton added, “There are $500 rentals in the paper. They’re studios and one-bedroom apartments. You can’t put a family with children in a studio or one-bedroom apartment and call that satisfactory housing.” This week’s Tele-Talk: What should towns be doing to promote workforce housing? Call 733-5822 Saturday and Sunday and leave your comments on our machine. You may fax your responses to 356-8360 or e-mail them to Comments can also be posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page. Results will be published Tuesday.

Wednesday, Jan. 26 • There will be an unprecedented reduction in services if $50,000 isn’t reinstated into the police department budget, police officials say. “The town has never had to endure a police department that says, ‘We can’t help you,’” said Lt. Chris Perley. “This is the time that will happen.” • A stricter activity is now in place that the Conway School Board believes will make students more accountable for their actions — even off campus. • Jack Rose signs up for re-election as Albany selectman. • Erik Corbett files for a three-year term as Bartlett selectman; Leslie Mallett is seeking a sixth term as town clerk. • Students help raise money for a solar energy project at Fryeburg Academy. • A coalition of citizens and business leaders is helping to open doors to affordable housing in Mount Washington Valley. see DIGEST page 8

Stone Mountain Arts Center Coming Up!


Will Obama bounce back? JACKSON, N.H. — There is snow on the roof of the red covered bridge, the whoosh of cross-country skiers in the fields, a bustle in the village despite temperatures in single digits. The other night the moon glistened, and so did the ice below. This seems a world apart. Nearly a half-century ago, the election chronicler Theodore H. White came to New Hampshire and found that “this bit of green and forested country is a byway, a beautiful anachronism sheltered from the present by an exemption of history.” That exemption is gone now, repealed by the technological revolution that brings the outside world into every chilly hand that clasps a mobile device. North Country towns that in my father’s day were eight hours from Boston can be reached now in two hours 20 minutes. Isolated crossroads where, within my own memory, farmers wrestled with rabbit-ear antennae on their televisions that have long been connected by cable. Even so, New Hampshire is a place apart. So, too, is North Dakota, but the difference is that every four years since 1912, New Hampshire has offered itself up as a political testing ground, its first-in-the-nation primary status now firmly established. And in the primary’s centennial run, the distance from New Hampshire to Washington — measured in days and the steps of horses in the 19th century, but now by only 109 minutes on an E170 aircraft — seems as far as ever. That’s because the Republicans in Washington are seeking to maneuver against President Barack Obama rather than to run against him. These are different tasks, calling for different kinds of politics — and, as the list of likely GOP candidates shows, different kinds of men and women. The campaign is taking shape against the backdrop of unusual change in the Washington political landscape. For instance, Mr. Obama is mounting a pro-business offensive — his appointment of General Electric’s Jeffrey R. Immelt as his chief economic adviser and his remarks in Tuesday’s State of the Union message are the latest examples — that may transform the political calculus almost as fundamentally as last autumn’s midterm congressional elections. It is not unusual for business leaders to complain about Democratic presidents, but their complaints about Mr. Obama had special credibility because the president, known for tossing a brick or two at Wall Street and the banks, has had unusually little exposure to them. John F. Kennedy chose C. Douglas Dillon, a Wall Street banker and Republican with close ties to the Rockefellers, as his treasury secretary and Lyndon B. Johnson retained him for 16 months. Robert S. McNamara, a Harvard Business School graduate and teacher who was president of Ford Motor Co., served as defense secretary under both Kennedy and Johnson. Luther H. Hodges, the commerce secretary in that period, was a pro-business governor of North Carolina responsible for the development of the state’s Research Triangle. Jimmy Carter’s first treasury secretary was W. Michael Blumenthal, who had a business degree and a Ph.D. in economics and had been president of Bendix International. Bill Clinton was so surrounded by business executives and veterans of the bond markets — in some ways, Robert E. Rubin, a onetime co-chairman

of Goldman Sachs, was his most influential adviser — that he was criticized by traditional Democratic interests. But Mr. Obama had no such coterie — until recently. Now he has bulked up on business types and instituted policy changes that could not have been imagined by some of the activists who supported his candidacy. Then this month came his extraordinary initiative on regulation, with Mr. Obama vowing to sweep away Washington interference in a way that might make you think Ronald Reagan were in charge. In some ways, the Reagan ethos is. The president, who announced his offensive in a Wall Street Journal column, now is warring against regulations “that stifle job creation and make our economy less competitive.” This so shocked the body politic that the editorial page of the Journal, the trustee of the Reagan flame, wrote: “Liberals have spent years dismissing warnings that their agenda created uncertainty and harmed the economy, and then they wake up to find their leader on the Wall Street Journal editorial page disowning ‘unreasonable burdens on business.’” Now I think it is possible to say that you have seen everything. And now it is clear why, in the NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, some 45 percent of the public characterized the president in mid-January as very or somewhat liberal — 10 percentage points below the 55 percent who described him that way a year ago. This came at basically the same time when, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post Poll, 78 percent of the public approved of the president’s response to the Arizona shooting incident. The job for the Republicans far from Washington but itching for the keys to the White House is to campaign against a president in the odd position of having obstacles in the capital that are greater than ever, but prospects in the nation that are more promising than they have been in months. This conundrum is summarized crisply by Thomas D. Rath, a former Republican New Hampshire attorney general. “Do four or five good weeks erase two years of rudderless policy?” asks Mr. Rath, a prominent figure in the 2008 campaign of Mitt Romney who likely will help the former Massachusetts governor if he mounts a second campaign. “The president is a very popular guy with a lot of personal qualities people identify with. But the American people will have to make a judgment about whether they want him to be president after 2012.” The challenge Republicans face here in New Hampshire — where this month the GOP elected a new state chairman with strong tea party links — is how to run against a newly resurgent Mr. Obama, whom they know has peerless campaign skills, an appealing personality and an unusual ability to become a repository for voters’ unspoken impulses and desires. What they didn’t know was how deftly and swiftly Mr. Obama, after stumbling in the White House and suffering a devastating midterm defeat, could jump on the comeback trail just as they were starting out on the campaign trail.

Don’t miss for Effingham public hearing To the editor, I want to encourage public turnout for the Effi ngham Public Hearing this Monday night, Jan. 31, at 7 p.m. at the Effingham Town Hall. The first public hearing was well attended and the feedback was very thought provoking and helpful for the planning board. The Code Officer was on hand to give her feedback about the practicalities of implementation. The planning board is proposing changes to the current Wetlands article that will reduce the current buffer zones in certain instances so that the article is more fl exible for residents. They are proposing adopting a groundwater protection article that largely mirrors state law and will allow the townspeople recourse of their own for violations endangering drinking water that otherwise would have to be deferred to state enforcement. The planning board closed the fi rst public hearing and entered a work session to address public concerns. They adjourned after 11 p.m. and announced a continuation of

the meeting for the next night no matter the weather. If the planning board had not done this, no changes would have made it to revision for eventual public voting in March, as the version in existence at the time of published notice of the final hearing is the version that must go to vote. With winter storm conditions in full swing, the entire planning board made the meeting to finish their deliberations of public input. I traveled on cross country skis as I live not too far away and my car could not handle the roads which were empty of nearly all traffic. The board persisted despite greatly differing views and came to amazing consensus after much discussion and compromise, to craft changes to improve the proposed articles. So, after all the effort of all the volunteers who have helped draft articles, and the many meetings and deliberations of the planning board, I hope as many townspeople as can attend Monday night’s final hearing.

It’s obvious these exchanges did not occur To the editor: The Conway Daily Sun's teacher columnist from Fryeburg Maine, likes to use his students as a device in his columns to spread propaganda. It is obvious that these exchanges between teacher and students did not occur. What teacher would write a column about a conversation he had with his primary grade students about the signifi cance of Monica Lewinsky's knee pads? What kind of teacher would use another column highlighting his discussion with them on the sexual meaning of the number 69? Who can believe a columnist who complains one week about crossing the

border with a glove compartment containing bullets and a bottle of wine in the back seat and another column claiming it was bullets and a six pack of beer? In his last column he writes about a student who claimed they needed a passport to visit their relative in jail. What do the parents think after reading his columns? He has to be making it up. I read his columns because he distills the right wing radical blogosphere and sums up their propaganda in a nutshell. I really do like some of his articles that deal with local history and abandoned foundations. Michael Callis Conway

Country doctor closes private practice, but love for personalized medicine continues BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

FRYEBURG, Maine — After two and a half years on her own, self-described “country” doctor Dr. Mary Nash, 71, is leaving her private practice in the brick building at 44 Portland Street, effective Jan. 31. It's a sad time for her patients, as well as for Dr. Nash. In many ways, her reasons for stepping away from her private practice perhaps offer a statement about the business of medicine these days. see next page

Prizes part of home finale for Fryeburg Academy boys' basketball teams FRYEBURG, Maine — Dismayed by low turnout at games this season, Ronald Mallory wants to pack the house Tuesday for the fi nal home games of the season for the Fryeburg Academy boys' JV and varsity basketball teams. The JV game is at 5, and the varsity at 6:30. Mallory, whose grandson plays for both squads, has organized an "It Takes a Village Night" at Fryeburg's Wadsworth Arena to show community support for the players. And he's gotten several businesses on board to help make the night special. Every paid admission will be entered into a drawing for several prizes, including: • Three $50 L.L. Bean gift certificates. • $50 Lowe's gift certificate. • $25 Sherman Farms gift certificate. • One cord of fi rewood for the 201112 season. • $100 savings bond. • $25 gift certificate from Jockey Cap. The drawing for these prizes will be held at halftime. Then after the game, a drawing will be held for a grand prize, which is dinner for two at the Darby Field Inn. Mallory is encouraging people to "grab the family and fi ll the car with friends to make this a special night our senior boys will remember." Fliers are being circulated throughout town, promoting "It Takes a Village Night," and Mallory has plenty of fl iers available for anybody who wants to help get the word out. He can be reached at (603) 733-8462 or (603) 447-3066.

Returning to Franconia Ridge loop in the winter Hiking –––––

I like returning to certain hiking adventures in the winter, and one is the 8.9 mile Ed Parsons Franconia Ridge loop, considered by many one of the ultimate White Mountain day hikes any time of year. From the Franconia Notch Parkway, it ascends the Old Bridle Path to Greenleaf Hut, catches the Greenleaf Trail to the summit of Mount Lafayette, goes south on the Franconia Ridge Trail over Mount Lincoln to Little Haystack, and down the Falling Waters Trail to the original parking lot. This Wednesday was mostly cloudy with mild temps. A widespread under-cast was forecast for the area, with clouds lifting from the higher summits in the afternoon. A mild northeaster was slowly moving in, possibly bringing in a few more inches of snow very early the next morning. There was no wind. It was another brief lull in the weather, and hard to resist getting out on a substantial trek. I took the northern driving route to Franconia Notch, and as I drove past Bretton Woods, a uniform dark cloud bank rested on the higher western slopes of Mount Washington. Yet a glow of sun peeked out at the summit. It was the only patch of land in the north country in the sun that morning, and must have been spectacular. On the Franconia Ridge that day, the clouds would flirt with lifting, but never did completely, making for some mystical mountain landscapes. Attentive hikers who could get out that day, took advantage of the weather lull, and when I drove into the northbound lane parking lot at Lafayette Place, a little late at 9:30 a.m., a half dozen cars were already there. see HIKING page 24

other, and only associate with the females during the breeding season. This is in the summer, and the young martens are not born until the following spring. Though this period of gestation may seem uncommonly long, it is due to a phenomenon called “delayed implantation.” Embryos do not develop all throughout this entire time, but instead undergo a spurt of growth only during the month before birth. This period is 27 days, versus the 220-270 days of gestation. Fisher cats and black bear also exhibit this reproductive habit. The female martens need a den site of a hollow tree or log when they reproduce at two to three years of maturity. The males however are sexually mature at one year. The little of young is born early April to mid-May and there are typically three to four delivered. Covered with fi ne yellowish hair then, their eyes open at fi ve to six weeks, and they are weaned within two weeks later. see next page

from preceding page

The graceful pine marten has a slender body with a long, bushy tail. The tail and the underparts are shaded darker than the brownish back, but the throat area is lighter. This pale, buffy patch extends to the breast. Pictures of marten I have seen are commonly yellowishbrown to dark brown furred, and always seem cuter than their larger cousin, the fi sher. The pelt of the American marten is shiny and luxuriant, resembling that of the closely related sable in Europe. They also have pointy noses, black eyes, and rounded cat-like ears. You would consider them about the size of a small house cat if you ever saw one. Martens have always been considered valuable furbearers, and this may explain their decline in numbers in the Northeast since the turn of the century. My authoritative references say that they are easily trapped, being uncommonly curious, and that there also has been a loss of habitat due to extensive logging and land clearing up there in our north country. Clearcuts may decrease marten populations for up to 15 years, as adequate habitat requires at least pole stage trees and older, denser residual stands left behind for this species. You may not know it, but trapping for the elusive pine marten

has been closed since the 1930s. The state of NH has this small weasel on its threatened list. Currently, the pine marten is being reintroduced to the state’s wilds. Two attempts occurred in 1953, and 1974. These have been successful as fields from former farms have revegetated to mature forests. Pine martens were released on land granted to Dartmouth College and also along the Maine border. In "Wildlines," New Hampshire’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife program of the NH Fish and Game newsletter, a study led by Julian Kelly while a master’s candidate at UMass, described her successful live trapping of existing pine martens in an area north of Route 26 near Pittsburg. Jillian set up five baited trap lines in her research efforts with 34 to 36 traps each, and caught martens in all of them! They were of a variety of ages, and only two were females, but she was excited to find some juveniles — because that was evidence the pine marten is breeding in our state.

Make it a double Here is a “Hall of Fame” skier development task-learn to do a “double pole plant,” and you’ll automatically improve your skiing. It’s really just that simple. A double pole plant is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of using only your downhill pole, use both for each turn. As you extend into your new turn, bring both hands forward with your pole swing, touch both poles to the snow, and engage your edges aggressively into the new arc. Repeat. Remember, bringing the poles forward involves bringing the body and arms forward. Your hands should always be out front. Bringing your body forward and using your wrists makes those pole plants and your skiing instantly better. If you find this difficult at first, then you’ll truly benefit from developing a strong double pole plant. Remember, the pole swing leads you into the next turn, and a double pole plant forces you to move in the direction your skis are

going. This is good. Your shoulders needs to be level with the hill, or your uphill pole will catch on the snow. Again, this is good. Forward movement relative to your feet through your turns is always good, and the double pole plant makes this happen. Good again. The list goes on and on. To master the double pole plant, start with repeated double pole plants as you traverse a wide slope, getting the feel of the movement. Next-try mellow arcs and deliberate, relaxed double pole plants. When you think you’re ready, step on the gas and double pole plant your way to greatness. Best advice of all: take a lesson or attend a race clinic. You’ll have a great time and improve your time.

Tamworth Sled Dog Race this weekend

The annual Tamworth Sled Dog Race will be held Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 29 and 30. The race will run on the scenic expanse of Chocorua Lake and its surrounding trails. One of the longest running sprint races in the world, the races will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Access to the start/fi nish area is from Route 16 adjacent to the lake. Parking will be off the northbound lane. At least 60 sled dog teams from the New England Sled Dog Club will compete in this two-day event. The number of dogs per team varies according to class, which progress from the one-dog juniors to the 14-dog professionals. The biggest teams will compete in the Pinetree Power Classic, starting both days at noon, run-

ning an 11-mile course on logging roads and snowmobile trails. For more than 50 years, the Tamworth Outing Club has sponsored racers from New York, Canada, and New England to compete on these challenging trails. Other events include one-, two-, three-, four-, and six-dog races, both amateur and professional, throughout each day. Admission is free for spectators, who are welcome to watch the teams, talk to drivers, and see the action. The proceeds from a concession stand with food, hot beverages and race memorabilia benefi t the Tamworth Outing Club. With Mount Chocorua as a backdrop, this is the most scenic race in the East. For more information, contact Stan Coville at 323-8023.

Tin Mountain’s February mammal project starts Feb. 1 ALBANY — February’s mammal project will focus on weasels and todents and features Dr. Rick Van de Poll, noted ecologist and principal of Ecosystem Management Consultants. The weasels and rodents portion of the mammal project is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The program is open to the public and it is not necessary to have attended previous sessions to participate. Through the Tuesday evening classroom ses-

sion and Saturday fi eld session Tin Mountains invite participants to come explore the question: What do weasels and rodents have in common? Perhaps most importantly, they are both Mammals. They have fur, are warm-blooded, have digitate toes that support (mostly) quadripedal activity, and give birth to live young whom they feed milk. Beyond that they are largely unrelated, with weasels belonging to the Order Carnivora for their meat-eating habits, and rodents

belonging to the Order Rodentia for their largely vegetation eating habits, courtesy of their extra large upper and lower incisors. Dietary habit gives them another way of relating to each other — predator versus prey. Nearly all weasels rely on rodents for their dietary needs and nearly all rodents rely on weasels to keep their populations in check. February’s sessions on weasels and rodents will cover the basics of anatomy, morphology and physiology, as

well as the adaptive evolution of each group. We will review all eight species of weasels and 22 species of rodents found in New England through a combination of track diagrams and color slides. The indoor session will prepare us for an all-day outdoor “search-andfind” excursion for these illustrious members of our furbearer cousins. Tuition for each session is $15 for members and $20 for non-member. For reservations or more information call 447-6991.

I started up the packed trail, soon took a left on the Bridle Path, and in a few hundred yards stopped to put on MICROspikes, equivalent to a hiker’s winter tires. I hadn’t brought snowshoes after looking at the Website “Views from the Top,” and reading an account of someone doing this hike a few days previously on a perfectly packed down trail. However, further along on my hike that day, I would meet a highly experienced hiker who said that he always brings snowshoes. Winding upward towards the fi rst lookout, I caught up with a group of a half dozen middle aged hikers from the Lakes Region. They were very pleasant, and before I moved on ahead of them, they said that another party of two had hiked past them earlier, and one of these was Ed Hawkins. Hawkins is a legendary hiker of the present day. He started hiking in 1993, and has since hiked almost continuously, despite a substantial commute to the mountains from Chester. He has completed the Grid three times, each time climbing all 48 New Hampshire 4,000 footers in every month of the year. To date, he has completed the 48 New Hampshire 4,000 footers an amazing 65 times. In 2007, he went on to complete the 67 New England 4,000 footers in every month, completing a New England Grid. These are only part of his hiking accomplishments, and if you want to read a more complete list, go to the grid website at A social hiker, Hawkins is an AMC trip leader. It is unusual to catch him in the mountains with only one companion. I had never met him, and was motivated to catch up as I continued up the trail alone. I reached the first lookout, and watched light snow fall though the vast space above Walker Ravine. Above, the Franconia Ridge was in the clouds, but some fragmentary blue hinted of a later break up. The trail up the bumpy ridge called the Agonies was in great shape, and soon I stood in the open by the AMC’s Greenleaf Hut. On the cloud capped ridge above, only a quarter mile away, two tiny fi gures paused at timberline. I continued on the Greenleaf Trail, fi rst dropping down to the shore of the tiny Eagle Lake. The upward trail then plunged into the stunted forest, and soon started to thin out as I made my way above the trees. I rounded the last corner of trees, and Hawkins and his companion were just above me. I caught up. We had friendly introductions, then we climbed in a line for a stretch, with Hawkins in the lead. He had a steady, indestructible pace. I relaxed after my push from the hut. They were also doing the Falling Waters loop. They both wore short MSR snowshoes, with great traction. I said that I hadn’t brought snowshoes. Hawkins said that he always does, that you might end up “out there,” he said, pointing to the deep trackless snow in the nearby upper Walker Ravine. Someone who does hard hikes all week in the winter Whites, is especially aware of any eventuality. I decided to move ahead and leave them in peace, and mentioned that they would probably catch up, but Hawkins, now 65, said they wouldn’t. He was a little “leg weary” after four out of five days of hikes. I see next page

asked what he did the day before, and he said both Osceolas from the Kancamagus Highway. “They were in great shape,” he said, meaning the trail. I moved ahead towards the nearby summit of Mount Lafayette, but they were close behind the whole way, and it was like he was pushing me forward. I didn’t linger on top, and moved down the cloudy ridge towards Mount Lincoln. I had pushed again, and in the saddle just below the rise to Mount Lincoln, I sat in the snow for some lunch. It was windless and mild, and in the clouds. I was going to relax an enjoy the mile and a half walk down the ridge. I stood and slowly climbed to the top of Lincoln, where I walked into bright sunlight. I was right at the turbulent line between clouds below and blue sky above. It was like being on a ship in a gentle storm, as silent clouds billowed over the summit, then cleared

away, allowing full sunlight. I lingered, wanting to see if a white Mount Lafayette would appear to the north, but it didn’t, and I turned and moved down the ridge past haunting rock formations and a steep drop-off on the west side. Finally, I walked out to the low summit of Little Haystack, and walked down into the conifer forest on the Falling Waters Trail. There were a couple inches of new snow on top of the packed trail, and whenever I could, I sat and slid down the trail, easily controlling my slide in the soft snow. Lower down, the big waterfalls on Dry Brook were covered in deep snow, but you could hear the water cascading beneath them. Finally, I reconnected with the Bridle Path and walked out to my car. By then, the sky had fi lled in with uniform dark clouds again, and I felt grateful to have climbed up to meet the sun.

By Holiday Mathis her mind so you can easily address it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will be a newcomer on the scene. It’s a powerful position, since every thriving scene depends on a steady trickle of fresh energy to keep it alive. Enter with confidence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have much to offer professionally, though you may feel that you still have not completely broken into the higher ranks of your business. You will gain respect and influence today. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). Friends recognize the value in what you have to offer. Now you’ll have to convince the outsiders. The support you already have will be instrumental in your ability to gain more support. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are slowly moving into a new lifestyle, and it gets more comfortable for you every day. Today, you’ll expose yourself to the fi ner things in life without overspending. PISCES (Feb. 19 -March 20). You may get a powerful urge to do something that is unwise, like call up that friend who’s bad for you or spend money you shouldn’t be spending. Divert your own attention until the impulse passes. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 29). This year, you’ll be paid for your unique and rare qualities. Devotion to family will be rewarded, as they make you proud in February. In March, you’ll carry out a vision for your personal life. May brings a fi nancial leg up. Your romantic life is quite satisfying, especially the adventures in June and August. Pisces and Capricorn people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 43, 22, 16 and 45.

Get Fuzzy

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a lot you’re going to do, and it helps you to articulate your plans. However, it’s best to do this with someone who is already on your team. An outsider would rather hear about what you’ve already done. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ve long been curious about how some aspect of business works. A savvy friend can demystify this for you. Perhaps this is a new source of income for you to investigate. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re bound for business success. There is no secret to unravel. If you work hard and smart enough at this, you will succeed. Do your research, ask for expert opinions, and leave your ego out of the equation. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll entice someone to do what they already wanted to do. They were just too shy or secretive to make their wishes known. Your powers of influence will be heightened. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just because an idea is outrageous doesn’t mean it isn’t doable. Put it to the test before you chuck the whole notion. And if you find that it actually isn’t doable, it will still lead to something good. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ve been so good -- sticking to your diet and to your budget, too. So let yourself indulge a little bit now. Small pleasures will feel like crazy extravagances today, and you’ll feel duly rewarded. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re not a code-breaker, but you’re pretty in tune to human nature. Someone is hinting around, and you wish this person would just come out and say what’s on

Yesterday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 29, 2011— Page 29

Today is Saturday, Jan. 29, the 29th day of 2011. There are 336 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 29, 1861, Kansas became the 34th state of the Union. On this date: In 1820, Britain’s King George III died at Windsor Castle. In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “The Raven” was first published in the New York Evening Mirror. In 1856, Britain’s Queen Victoria introduced the Victoria Cross to reward military acts of valor during the Crimean War. In 1919, the ratification of the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, which launched Prohibition, was certified by Acting Secretary of State Frank L. Polk. In 1929, The Seeing Eye, a New Jerseybased school which trains guide dogs to assist the blind, was incorporated by Dorothy Harrison Eustis and Morris Frank. In 1963, the first members of pro football’s Hall of Fame were named in Canton, Ohio. Poet Robert Frost died in Boston at age 88. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter formally welcomed Chinese Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping to the White House, following the establishment of diplomatic relations. In 1998, a bomb rocked an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Ala., killing security guard Robert Sanderson and critically injuring nurse Emily Lyons. (The bomber, Eric Rudolph, was captured in May 2003 and is serving a life sentence.) One year ago: In a remarkably sharp face-to-face confrontation in Baltimore, President Barack Obama chastised Republican lawmakers for opposing him on taxes, health care and the economic stimulus, while they accused him in turn of brushing off their ideas and driving up the national debt.

Help Wanted

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: American society has become ultra-casual in dress and manners. When I look at old photographs, men and women used to dress better and seemed to take more pride in their appearance. Now they wear pajamas to shop, torn jeans to work and clothes that are too small for large bodies. I feel we are a nation of slobs. Are we doomed to be this way in the future? I work in an office of slobs and everyone knows I dislike the “casual atmosphere,” so please don’t print my name. -- DRESSED FOR SUCCESS IN ALBUQUERQUE DEAR DRESSED FOR SUCCESS: You are correct. People did dress differently in the 1950s, which took time, effort and money. Things started changing in the ‘60s -- when the next generation became the demographic that was being marketed to. After that, younger people began adopting the “grunge chic” they were seeing in music videos. Are we doomed to be this way forever? I think so, unless there’s a reactionary fashion revolution. Frankly, I don’t see it happening anytime soon. But before labeling your co-workers as slobs, please remember that they were hired looking the way they do, and if your employer didn’t approve of their appearance, there would be a dress code that is strictly enforced. DEAR ABBY: Tonight I came home to fi nd three messages on my phone. One was from a doctor’s offi ce; the other two were business calls. Each one asked me to call back. The callers spoke plainly -- until they came to the phone number, which they rattled off so fast I had to replay the messages

several times just to be able to write the numbers down. What’s the matter with people? This happens all the time at work and at home. Callers, PLEASE slow down and speak clearly -- as if you are picturing someone actually writing down your number. Abby, am I getting old, or what? -- SAY WHA ---? ORANGE, CALIF. DEAR SAY WHA ---?: What you’re experiencing usually happens when the caller is in a hurry or calling a list of people they’re trying to get through. In a social context, it is inconsiderate. In a business context, it is unprofessional. People in the fi nancial fi eld are trained to repeat their phone numbers slowly, clearly and TWICE to prevent the problem you have described. And readers, if you are guilty of this, please slow down and take note. DEAR ABBY: I have four adult children. I was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago, but it was detected early and my prognosis is excellent. They keep making comments about their “inheritance.” An example: “Take care of that painting -- it’s my inheritance.” Dealing with the cancer is stressful, but their comments make me feel terrible. What can I say to shut them up? -- NOT GOING ANYWHERE YET DEAR NOT GOING ANYWHERE YET: Allow me to offer a few suggestions: 1. “Stop hanging crepe because I’m not dying”; 2. “Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched”; and 3. “I will, because I’ve decided to donate it to a museum.”

Annual Valentine’s Day Auction Feb. 8

Some of you out there might disagree but I have to say that so far, it’s been a pretty great winter. How so? Well, it’s still January and I’ve already had two snow days. Ah, the joy of winter! But I digress. What I want to say is everyone here at the center is truly grateful to all the businesses that are donating such wonderful gifts for our eleventh annual Valentine’s Auction. R&R Woodworkers has once again donated a beautiful large Adirondack Rocking Chair; that’s something we could all use next summer. The ski areas have donated lift tickets, and the local restaurants have offered gift certifi cates. Local artists have donated small and large pieces. We have gift baskets from Zeb’s, as well as several baskets fi lled with tasty international fl avors. I understand Jill is planning to bid on the hot and spicy basket because her brother’s birthday is coming up. I’m told there’s even an iPod Shuffl e being auctioned off as well; I suppose my great nephew could explain that one to me! Most important, please note that this year we will hold our annual auction at the Red Jacket Mountain View Resort in Hampshire Hall on Tuesday, Feb. 8. 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. see GIBSON page 37

Taking a new approach to bullying White Mountain Waldorf School lecture at Salyards Jan. 25 CONWAY — The White Mountain Waldorf School, in collaboration with Memorial Hospital, is sponsoring a lecture by Kim John Payne, whose Social Inclusion Approach to working with bullying and teasing is internationally recognized. This dynamic talk will take place at Salyards Center for the Arts in Conway on Tuesday, Jan. 25. The event is free and open to the public. As a non-profi t organization, to help us offset the costs of this lecture, donations are encouraged and appreciated. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for a reception and the lecture will begin at 7 p.m. Social Inclusion is designed to give practical playground, classroom and home-based tools to work with social exclusion issues. Payne’s approach to this subject is unique. He acknowledges that conflict is a natural part of growing up and thus rather than avoiding confl ict, children must learn how to deal appropriately and effectively with it. He discusses how the traditional punishment approach is unsuccessful and conversely how strengthening relationships helps to change awareness and understanding in order to bring about real change. In his work Payne has written, “Seclusion, Endurance, Change and Belonging. These are four qualities that are present in all traditional initiations where a balance between freedom and responsibility is learnt. However fewer and fewer children experience these ceremonies. So where are the new rites of passage? The answer is in intense human encounter. It is in our daily struggles with each other that we defi ne ourselves and experience the four qualities of initiation. How can we ‘elder’ our children knowing that … peace is not the absence of conflict but the beginning of it.”

Kim John Payne, M.Ed, has worked as a counselor, adult educator, consultant/researcher and educator. He is the author of the book “Games Children Play,” and “Toxic Stress in the Lives of Our Children.”

Kim John Payne, M.Ed, an Australian, has worked for 18 years as a counselor, adult educator, consulsee BULLYING page 36

Green Mountain Conservation Group hires water quality monitoring coordinator EFFINGHAM — Green Mountain Conservation Group has announced that Elena Piekut is the group's new water quality monitoring program coordinator for 2011. An Effi ngham native and a Kingswood graduate, Piekut now holds a bachelor of arts in human ecology from College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine, where she focused both on writing and on issues related to the planning, economics, and sustainability of small communities. Piekuthas been involved with the Green Mountain Conservation Group since its founding in 1997, and in 2006 she was the summer intern for the group’s Water Quality Monitoring Program. Her familiarity with the organization and the watershed it serves has already proved helpful as she coordinates the newly launched Youth Coalition for Clean Water, which builds on the work of outgoing coordinator Mia Akaogi. The Ossipee Watershed Workbook — a compilation of lessons, activities, and teacher resources meeting N.H. state curriculum standards — was recently completed by Akaogi and presented to local educators at Green Mountain Conservation Group’s annual meeting on Jan. 23. The Youth Coalition for Clean Water will engage Ossipee Watershed youth in stewardship of the region’s shared water resources through water quality research, service learning projects, and public outreach efforts. The coalition will combine classroom experiences, fi eld trips, extracurricular activities, summer camp programs, and leadership opportunities for students to facilitate a relationship between students in neighboring towns, their education, town government, and the environment in which they live. There are many opportunities for involvement in the Youth Coalition for Clean Water in 2011 through water quality research, projects that implement best management practices such as rain gardens and rain barrels, and the creation of public outreach messages. Participating classes, student interns, community members, teachers and students will be able to decide which projects they pursue. Piekut said she is excited to get to know kids in the watershed and find out what they are interested in doing to help their community keep water clean. She said that her own early involvement with the Green Mountain Conservation Group was an incomparable experience. “I’m looking forward to taking on a role like those that the GMCG founders and early members played in helping me come to understand the place where I grew up,” she says. “I can’t say with any certainty that I would have taken the same directions in my life and my education if it hadn’t been for my early experiences with Green GIBSON from page 34

Mountain. I defi nitely wouldn’t have as holistic of an idea of this place and how unique it is.” The projects coming up first as a part of the Youth Coalition in 2011 include the University of Maine’s GET WET! program, which gives students an opportunity to learn about groundwater by testing their own well water, and Trout Unlimited and NH Fish & Game’s Egg-In-The-Classroom program, in which elementary classrooms in Sandwich and Moultonborough will raise brook trout from eggs to fry and then release the fish into local rivers this spring. For more information or to be a part of the Youth Coalition for Clean Water, contact Elena at or 539-1859. Funding for this project is provided by the Lakes Region Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and from sales of the Conservation License Plate (Moose Plate) through the N.H. State Conservation Committee.

Daniel 'Danny' John Mauch

Harland D. Howe Harland D. Howe, 89, of Fryeburg, Maine, died Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011 in the presence of close family. He was born on March 15, 1921 in Canaan, Vt. to Lloyd and Rosalie Howe. Harland lived in Intervale for the early part of his life. He graduated from Kennett High School in 1939. He joined the Marines in January 1942 as a private and worked his way to Corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was a member of the First Marine Division at Guadalcanal, and continued his tour of duty until he was honorably discharged in January 1946. After his return from the armed services, Harland married his wife Lois and they lived in North Conway for many years. He was a service manager for White Mountain Oil Company and worked there for over 40 years. During this time, he and his wife had four children. He was an avid hunter and fi sherman, who also liked to golf. He was also an accomplished gardener, taking pride in his expansive vegetable garden and winning an award with the White Mountain Garden Club. He was, like many Mount Washington Valley natives, an excellent skier. He also rode snowmobiles and hiked, and generally enjoyed the outdoors. He was a volunteer for the North Conway Fire Department for many years. Harland and Lois liked to travel and managed to make trips to Hawaii, Australia, and across the United States and back through Canada. Harland and Lois moved to Fryeburg in 1978. He retired from the White Mountain Oil Company in 1986. In Fryeburg, he continued to be active outdoors by exploring the acres of land around his home. He picked blackberries and blueberries in the woods, while cursing the black fl ies. He also took the opportunity to fi sh in the pond on his property, catching mostly pickerel but just enjoying the peace and quiet. He continued his gardening there, as well. He loved to make fresh fried green tomatoes for anyone who was around. Harland was a strong and deliberate

M T.

man, who was extremely patriotic and hard working. He was an honest and dependable man. His wife recently said, “He did not waste words, and he did not talk nonsense.” This earned him a reputation as a straight shooter; who would not say anything until he had something to say. He was a good husband, father, and grandfather. Harland is survived by his wife of 65 years, Lois Howe, of Fryeburg, Maine; three daughters, Heidi Provencaland her husband John, of Merrimack, Jackie Howe, of Fryeburg, and Kathleen Haynes, of North Conway; one son, Judson Howe, of Fryeburg, and his wife, Kimberly; three grandchildren, Heather, Elijah and Amanda; a brother, Stanton Howe, of Newbury Park, Calif.; a sister, Joyce Howe of Portsmouth, as well as several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by a brother, Lawrence Howe, and a sister, Marilyn Heath. There will be an announcement for a graveside service in the spring at the North Conway Cemetery. Donations may be sent to the North Conway Day Care Center, PO Box 401, North Conway, NH, 03860, or the charity of your choice.

International condos BY SUSAN K. O’BRIEN Are you dreaming of a beachside condo in Belize, or a ski chalet in Switzerland? If so, despite the luxury nature of such a purchase, you aren’t alone. Buying condos in a foreign country is becoming more common as boundaries shift, air travel increases, and foreign developers discover the market. TV shows and slick magazines paint a rosy picture of such a purchase. But as the American owner of two condos in Quebec City for over 10 years, I learned how to think about a foreign purchase. The fi rst step isn’t to hire a real estate agent and go looking, but to determine your needs, wishes, and particularly your limits. Before falling in love with a geographic place or an actual condo, sit down and fi gure out exactly how much you have to Susan K. O’Brien spend and stick to it. In our case, drawing this firm line meant a very considerable savings. The first unit we bought had been on the market for a year and the owner was anxious to sell. He accepted an offer from us that was lower than a previous offer he had turned down. Add in extra expenses: airline travel, utilities, taxes and a cushion for the inevitable but unexpected repairs that will come up. In the case of Canada, taxes are signifi cantly higher than the in U.S. Fees for real estate agents can go as high as 8 percent in some countries, so research that before buying in case you want to or have to resell the unit. Now fi gure out your primary use. If it’s to spend time on the beach, you may be looking at a condo association made up of many tourists from other countries. In our case, we wanted the full experience of French Canadian life with many places to walk to, so we purchased a unit in a very historic building in the heart of the oldest section of the city. Remind yourself of how you live at home. Do you need peace and quiet? If so, don’t buy a unit next to a swimming pool. Make a list of everything you’d like to get in your new condo. Always use a licensed agent, and present your list to the agent before you even look. Have a copy with you and keep notes on the criterion each unit meets or doesn’t. You may or may not get everything you want, but it’s surprising how close you can come. Are you planning to rent your unit? Laws differ in different foreign locations: Canada has strict, very consumer-oriented laws that favor tenants. Having a list of honest, reliable rental agents is essential in considering any such transactions. How much can you get per month? Are weekly or shorter-term rentals allowed? (If yes, that can be a negative factor in the quality of life in the association but may reap a better rental income.) Pets? What happens if the tenant is unreliable? Can you evict, and how? Find out the rental history of units in any association you’re considering. Many people considering a foreign condo ask me why we purchased in French Canada rather than in France. I have a very low tolerance for see CONDOS page 42

the burdensome trappings of airline travel today. For me, it’s no longer enjoyable to fly; it’s an ordeal. I wanted a place we could easily drive to, and that decision has proven to be correct for us. We enjoy our leisurely drives almost as much as we do the experience of life in another country; we have favorite restaurants we stop at to eat; we know the route; it’s comfortable and safe. It’s also much cheaper than paying for plane tickets. So if you don’t want a vacation spoiled by planes that don’t fly, or by standing in long lines and fighting for food and water, fully consider the dark side of having to travel a long distance to enjoy your vacation unit. If you hate flying as much as I’ve come to, you’ll be better off with a condo in a close Canadian location, or in the U.S. Research health care. What options are there if you or a member of your family gets sick? What is the quality of care? Will your insurance cover a health care emergency in another country? Despite the reputation for long waits in the Canadian health care system, I have never had that experience. Both times we needed to use it we received excellent, onthe-spot, emergency care. I have read of other visitors who have not had such a positive result. If considering a retirement condo in a foreign country, note that you must remain in the U.S. for approximately six months per year or you can lose your social security and health benefi ts. You will still have to pay U.S. taxes on your income, including any you generate in a foreign country. What other services are available nearby any condo you consider? If you need to replace a dishwasher or fix the plumbing, how will you be able to do it? Remote locations in foreign country, attractive as they may be for views and natural surroundings, can be problematic if you don’t speak the language and you’re trying to arrange a repair from the United States. Will a language barrier exist in other ways? How important is this? Work only with an agent who will provide you with a copy of all documents in English. How will you read your association documents if you don’t speak the language? How will you be able to determine, for example, if increases in condo fees are fairly calculated? It’s a great courtesy to the culture you’re joining to learn at least a few phrases in the native language. Financing can be diffi cult in foreign countries. Line up an advance American expert to help you through this minefi eld. Some countries require as much as 40 percent down; other cultures may only accept full cash payments. What about the title? You need to understand whether or not your title is completely clear; if not, in some countries, family members have been known to come forward and try to claim the property. As with all condos, you should plan to participate in the life of the association as much as possible.

As with all condos, you should plan to participate in the life of the association as much as possible. Attend as many meetings as you can, learn about the issues, and make your voice known.

Attend as many meetings as you can, learn about the issues, and make your voice known. There are honest and dishonest board members in every country in the world; ignoring association relationships is a poor idea anywhere on the planet. Know your neighbors. An advantage of buying into an association that has at least some permanent residents is that they are far more likely to know what goes on when you’re not there. Some Americans have the idea, for example, that French Canadians are very unfriendly; this has been totally untrue in our case, and knowing the board and having friends in the building has been invaluable in problem-solving and, of course, in shared enjoyment of the culture. There are numerous issues to consider and resolve before buying a condo in a foreign country. In our case, buying an architecturally designed unit in a very historic Quebec building has provided a deeply satisfying experience of living in another culture in the closest way possible. It has not always been problem-free, but it has always been very interesting. So positive was our experience that when our next-door neighbors, a younger couple with whom we had become close friends, decided to sell their unit, we bought it directly from them without an agent. By then we knew which attorney to use and what the ground rules were. We now own a small wing of this beautiful building, affording much privacy and peace. While we bought our units at a time of excellent exchange between the dollar and the loonie and low prices in the market, we did not purchase as an investment. Nonetheless, because we chose wisely in a city now the tenth tourist destination in the world (as rated by Conde Nast, 2010,) our two little condos have grown greatly in value. Because of their historic location and cachet with both the French and out-of-Canada buyers, they will always be in demand. Bon journée!

QUESTION: When we purchased our, home part of the agreement was that the sellers would leave the custom dining room carpet and pad in place. However, these items were removed prior to closing. What can we do? ANSWER: Your real estate agreement required the sellers to deliver both the property and the carpeting as part of the transaction. The missing items should have been noted during the walk-through before settlement. Then the easiest solution is to cite the requirement at closing and either get a credit for a replacement carpet and pad or have the closing agent set up an escrow account and withhold money until the seller returns the promised items. QUESTION: It rained the first week after we bought our house and we found out the tile roof leaked. We had the home inspected prior to closing and the owners did not disclose this problem. We later found out they had worked on the roof and knew about the leak, but did not disclose. The repairs are costing us big money. What can we do? ANSWER: It may be that in good faith the owners had the roof repaired and therefore did not believe there was any leak to report. With the repair there may not have been damage to be found with a professional inspection. Since there was a professional repair, check to see if the work is backed by a warranty — and if the warranty applies to new owners. QUESTION: We bought a home with a central vacuum. When we moved in the attachments were missing. Can we force the sellers to return the attachments or pay for new ones? ANSWER: If you did not catch this at closing the odds are that it will not be worthwhile to pursue the owners for either the attachments or cash. Instead of “force,” the better approach may be diplomacy and a nice note asking for the return of the missing items. © CTW Features

Economy grew at 3.2 percent rate in fourth quarter of 2010 BY CATHERINE RAMPELL NEW YORK TIMES

With a little more money in their wallets and a little less fear in their hearts, American consumers helped pull the economy up by its bootstraps in the final months of last year. The gross domestic product, a broad measure of the goods and services produced in the country, grew at an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the fourth quarter, up from 2.6 percent in the previous period, according to a Commerce Department report released Friday. Because of this slightly speedier expansion, the nation’s overall economic output has fi nally matched its peak before the recession. Still, given the millions of jobless American workers, the economy has fallen far short of what it could be if it were healthy, economists said. “Things are better, but they’re not anywhere near where they need to be to make major inroads into unemployment,” said John Ryding, chief economist at RDQ Economics. Thanks to modestly higher paychecks and swelled investment portfolios, Americans appeared more comfortable buying again and stashing away a little less in savings. Consumer spending grew at an annual rate of 4.4 percent in the OctoberDecember period, its quickest pace in nearly fi ve years and almost double the growth rate from the previous quarter. The payroll tax cut and the extension of the Bush-era tax cuts, both

passed in December, are expected to further buoy consumer spending, which many economists predict will grow at an annual pace of about 3 or 3.5 percent this year. The shrinking trade defi cit also helped the economy regain some momentum in the final months of the year. Economic growth, after a surge in late 2009, began to sputter in the spring of last year. The slowdown was largely the result of rocketing growth in imports, which are subtracted from the government’s calculations of gross domestic product. In the fourth quarter, however, a combination of rising exports and shrinking imports helped the economy expand at a faster pace. “In the middle of last year, imports showed the biggest drag on G.D.P. growth in more than 60 years,” said Dean Maki, chief United States economist at Barclays Capital. “That kind of rise in imports just wasn’t sustainable.” Businesses also increased their spending on equipment and software as the year concluded, though not quite at the double-digit growth rates shown earlier in the year. Economists are hoping that these types of investments — and a replenishing of inventories, which ran low at the end of the last quarter — will soon be matched by investments in new workers as well. “Firms have the cash to hire,” said Augustine Faucher, director of macroeconomics at Moody’s Analytics. “They just need the confi dence to do so, and that could develop quickly.”

Financial crisis was avoidable, inquiry finds BY SEWELL CHAN NEW YORK TIMES

FWASHINGTON — The 2008 fi nancial crisis was an “avoidable” disaster caused by widespread failures in government regulation, corporate mismanagement and heedless risk-taking by Wall Street, according to the conclusions of a federal inquiry. The commission that investigated the crisis casts a wide net of blame, faulting two administrations, the Federal Reserve and other regulators for permitting a calamitous concoction: shoddy mortgage lending, the excessive packaging and sale of loans to investors and risky bets on securities backed by the loans. “The greatest tragedy would be to accept the refrain that no one could have seen this coming and thus nothing could have been done,” the panel wrote in the report’s conclusions, which were read by The New York Times. “If we accept this notion, it will happen again.” While the panel, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, accuses several financial institutions of greed, ineptitude or both, some of its gravest conclusions concern government failings, with embarrassing implications for both parties. But the panel was itself divided along partisan lines, which could blunt the impact of its findings. Many of the conclusions have been widely described, but the synthesis of interviews, documents and testimony, along with its government imprimatur, give the report — to be released on Thursday as a 576-page book — a conclusive sweep and authority. The commission held 19 days of hearings and interviews with more than 700 witnesses; it has pledged to release a trove of transcripts and other raw material online. Of the 10 commission members, the six appointed

by Democrats endorsed the final report. Three Republican members have prepared a dissent focusing on a narrower set of causes; a fourth Republican, Peter J. Wallison, has his own dissent, calling policies to promote homeownership the major culprit. The panel was hobbled repeatedly by internal divisions and staff turnover. The majority report fi nds fault with two Fed chairmen: Alan Greenspan, who led the central bank as the housing bubble expanded, and his successor, Ben S. Bernanke, who did not foresee the crisis but played a crucial role in the response. It criticizes Mr. Greenspan for advocating deregulation and cites a “pivotal failure to stem the fl ow of toxic mortgages” under his leadership as a “prime example” of negligence. It also criticizes the Bush administration’s “inconsistent response” to the crisis — allowing Lehman Brothers to collapse in September 2008 after earlier bailing out another bank, Bear Stearns, with Fed help — as having “added to the uncertainty and panic in the financial markets.” Like Mr. Bernanke, Mr. Bush’s Treasury secretary, Henry M. Paulson Jr., predicted in 2007 — wrongly, it turned out — that the subprime collapse would be contained, the report notes. Democrats also come under fi re. The decision in 2000 to shield the exotic financial instruments known as over-the-counter derivatives from regulation, made during the last year of President Bill Clinton’s term, is called “a key turning point in the march toward the financial crisis.” Timothy F. Geithner, who was president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York during the crisis and is now the Treasury secretary, was not unscathed; the report fi nds that the New York Fed missed signs of trouble at Citigroup and Lehman, though it did not

have the main responsibility for overseeing them. Former and current officials named in the report, as well as financial institutions, declined Tuesday to comment before the report was released. The report could reignite debate over the influence of Wall Street; it says regulators “lacked the political will” to scrutinize and hold accountable the institutions they were supposed to oversee. The financial industry spent $2.7 billion on lobbying from 1999 to 2008, while individuals and committees affi liated with it made more than $1 billion in campaign contributions. The report does knock down — at least partly — several early theories for the fi nancial crisis. It says the low interest rates brought about by the Fed after the 2001 recession; Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage fi nance giants; and the “aggressive homeownership goals” set by the government as part of a “philosophy of opportunity” were not major culprits. On the other hand, the report is harsh on regulators. It finds that the Securities and Exchange Commission failed to require big banks to hold more capital to cushion potential losses and halt risky practices, and that the Fed “neglected its mission.” It says the Offi ce of the Comptroller of the Currency, which regulates some banks, and the Offi ce of Thrift Supervision, which oversees savings and loans, blocked states from curbing abuses because they were “caught up in turf wars.” “The crisis was the result of human action and inaction, not of Mother Nature or computer models gone haywire,” the report states. “The captains of fi nance and the public stewards of our fi nancial system ignored warnings and failed to question, understand and manage evolving risks within a system essential to the well-being of the American public. Theirs was a big miss, not a stumble.”

DAVID HAINE REAL ESTATE “We know the land… we’ve been here all our lives.”

Economists say 2011 is the year of the “jump ball economy” — “so many consumer decisions are up in the air,” says James Chung, president of Research Advisors. According to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau, household incomes were on the decline during the past decade, even before the Great Recession hit: • Workers ages 15 to 24 saw a roughly 12 percent decline in income between 2000 and 2009, about the same as those aged 45 to 54. • Households 25 to 34 years old saw incomes decline 10 percent • Households 35 to 44 saw approximately 8 percent decline. • Heads of households between 55 and 66 saw a 1 percent increase in income, while those 65 to 74 saw an income growth of 10 percent Polling results from Yankelovich (The Futures Group) show the following homebuying trends as indicators of responsibility and good citizenship: • Making sure the home is as energy-effi cient as possible (65 percent) • Not buying a home that is larger than you really need (42 percent — up from 34 percent in 2007) • Further, 22 percent said that a home that did not offer savings through energy-effi ciency was a dealbreaker, and add 19 percent said that they would pay more for a home that offered energy-efficient — CTW Features
