School warrant articles total $1.2 million BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Aside from the budget, voters here will be asked to decide 21 other warrant articles when they head to the polls in April. The articles, which include everything from all-day kindergarten to two school buses, total over $1.15 million if all are approved.

In addition to $32.5 million operating budget

Earlier this month, the Conway School Board voted unanimously, for the first time in the past few years, to support the budget of $32,451,229, which is roughly $600,000 less than the previous year's $33,039,842. The total does not include the other warrant articles, and three of those,

all contracts, do not yet have a price tag associated with them. Board member Randy Davison, who had not supported the budget the prior two years, is supporting this one. see SCHOOL ARTICLES page 8

New Year’s revelry hurts many in Philippines MANILA — Officials in the Philippines mounted one of the most extensive campaigns in the country’s history to stem the annual tide of injuries caused by New Year’s Eve celebrations. Grisly posters of mangled hands were displayed. Doctors appeared on television news programs showing the bone saws they would use to amputate fingers blown apart by fireworks. Police officers were threatened with jail if they fired their guns in celebration. One senior health official even took to a stage in a flamboyant dance to show an alternative way to celebrate the new year. President Benigno S. Aquino III chimed in, pleading in his annual New Year’s message for people to observe the new year with “horns and loud music” instead of fireworks and guns. But when the smoke cleared on Sunday morning, few officials were celebrating. The Philippines Department of Health estimated that 476 people suffered injuries during the celebrations, including 454 related to fireworks, 18 to celebratory gunfire and 4 to the ingestion of firecrackers. The casualties included 177 children younger than 11 and 26 people who required amputations, Health Department officials said. The total represented a 13 percent decline from the total in the previous year and less than the average of 536 injuries.

Cars are set on fire, and Los Angeles left on edge LOS ANGELES (NY Times) — For all its considerable delights, Southern California always seems faintly on the cusp of an apocalypse. There are palm trees, yearround gardens and splendid weather — it was 81 degrees and sunny on Sunday — but there are also mudslides, gang shootings, wildfires and earthquakes. On this holiday weekend, Los Angeles was dealing with a new plague, this time an arsonist (or arsonists) who in the course

of three days set fire to at least 55 cars in the Los Angeles area, many of them parked in carports, engulfing vehicles and apartments in gasoline-fueled towers of flame. For four unsettling nights, continuing through early Monday morning, police officers and firefighters have raced around the city, always one step behind the person, or persons, who has gotten people in Los Angeles to go to their windows repeatedly throughout the night in response to the

slightest sound or change in light. “It’s pretty scary,” said Rebecca Asch, 29, who lives in West Hollywood. “I have a gated garage and it’s underneath my building, and if someone were to come in and light one of our cars on fire, it would probably set the whole building on fire. After another night of fires, the Los Angeles Fire Department announced early Monday morning that a “person of interest” had been detained in connection with the case.

In tight race, G.O.P. in Iowa Austerity reigns over Euro zone as crisis deepens hears closing arguments

DES MOINES (NY Times) — The Republican presidential candidates made a frenetic final push Monday to woo Iowa’s fickle voters before time runs out, hoping to gain whatever edge they can in a race that defies easy predictions. The six Iowa contenders are fanning out across the state in 19 planned campaign rallies and meet-and-greets Monday, looking for anyone who might be willing to brave the newly frigid winter weather to caucus for them Tuesday night.

At the Rising Sun Cafe in Polk City, Rick Santorum, the former senator from Pennsylvania, dismissed concern about whether his scrappy campaign can go the distance against Mitt Romney in what could be a drawn-out primary battle. “We’ve raised more money in the last few days than we have in the last few months,” Mr. Santorum said, adding that the new national attention he is receiving will persuade donors to contribute to what he called a “conviction politician” in the race.

(NY Times) — Europe’s leaders braced their nations for a turbulent year, with their beleaguered economies facing a threat on two fronts: widening deficits that force more borrowing but increasing austerity measures that put growth further out of reach. Most economists are forecasting a recession for 2012 in Europe, which will heighten the pressure governments and financial institutions across the Continent are seeing. Adding to the gloomy outlook is the prospect of a downgrade in France’s sterling credit rating, a move that analysts say could happen early in the new year and have wide-ranging consequences on efforts to stabilize Europe’s finances. Despite criticism from many economists, though, most European governments are sticking to austerity plans, rejecting the Keynesian approach of economic stimulus favored by Washington after the financial crisis in 2008, in a bid to show investors they are serious about fiscal discipline.

There are several new bill proposals that make you say huh BY TIM BUCKLAND THE UNION LEADER

CONCORD — It’s the time of year to start taking down Christmas decorations and start keeping — or breaking — New Year’s resolutions. And for some New Hampshire state legislators, it’s time to introduce bills that might make you say ... huh? If some legislators have it their way, state prisoners would be forced to eat a mostly vegetarian diet and state employees who interact with the public would not be allowed to wear perfume. Rep. Michele Peckham, R-North Hampton, is the prime sponsor of the perfume bill, which she said she put forward after a constituent asked her to do so. She said there are people allergic to fragrances. “It may seem silly, but it’s a health issue,” Peckham said. “Many people have violent reactions to strong scents.” State Rep. Robert Kingsbury, R-Laconia, who wants the vegetarian diet for state prisoners, said he is serious about each of several bills he’s put forward. “The bills I put in should, in my opinion, become law,” he said. “Whether they do or not, we’ll have to see.” Other bills introduced by Kingsbury include measures that would have the Legislature nominate candidates for primary elections for the U.S. Senate; require federal agents to inform New Hampshire law enforcement before beginning an investigation or law enforcement action in New Hampshire; and inform the U.S. Congress that the General Court does not want the New Hampshire National Guard serving outside the state, except upon the declaration of war. He also wants the Magna Carta referenced in bills on individual rights and liberties, wants judges to be at least 60 years old, would require pupils to stand during the pledge of allegiance and wants jurors to be paid a living wage when called to serve.

Requiring the vegetarian diet would increase food costs for the Department of Corrections by an average of about $700,000 per year over the next four years, according to estimates by legislative staff. It’s a number Kingsbury disputes. “I’ve had problems with some of the people” who conduct research for bills, he said. He said the bill, which has no co-sponsors, would save taxpayers as much as $7 million annually by mostly eliminating meat, which he said is costlier than starches or vegetables. Prisoners would be allowed to have meat on Sundays, Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to the bill. Another of his proposed bills would increase fees paid to jurors from $10 per half-day to $80 and increase mileage compensation from 20 cents per mile to 55 cents per mile. He said he doesn’t understand why the Legislature “would require jurors to serve at less than a living wage.” The legislation would increase annual general fund spending by anywhere from $3.9 million to $14.2 million, according to estimates in Kingsbury’s bill. Here are a couple of other bills suggested for 2012 that may raise an eyebrow or two: -- HB 1451, introduced by Rep. Robert Malone, R-Alton Bay, would establish a property tax credit of $75 for a residential vegetable garden of larger than 100 square feet. -- HB 1218, by Rep. Dan Itse, R-Fremont, would require the governor to seek Executive Council and legislative approval before applying for federal emergency assistance. -- HB 1446, by Rep. Laurie Harding, D-Lebanon, would exempt horse meat from inspection, prohibit the slaughter of horses for meat and prohibit the sale of horse meat for consumption. Searches of bills being proposed can be done at bill_status/.

Barbara Lucille (Goodwin) Flint

Barbara Lucille (Goodwin) Flint, 86, of Port Charlotte, Fla., formerly of Melrose, Mass.passed away peacefully, Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2011 at her home. She was the daughter of Angier Louis and (Eleanor Stone) Goodwin, born on Jan. 9, 1925 in Malden, Mass. Barbara grew up in Melrose and graduated from Melrose High School in 1942. After receiving an Associate of Arts degree from Lasell Junior College in Auburndale, Mass. in 1944, she went to work for her father in Washington.

Flint on Oct. 2, 1948 and the couple settled in Melrose, Mass., where they raised four children. In

1960, the family built a summer cottage on Broad Bay in Freedom where weekends and vacations were spent enjoying the lake in the summer and skiing in the winter. Barbara was active in the charitable sorority Phi Theta Xi, serving twice as President and put in countless volunteer hours for the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, including time on the Hospital Association. She was a Cub Scout den mother and a Camp Fire Leader. In the 1970s and 1980s she returned to work as a secretary in a dentist’s office in Malden. Travel was a favorite activity in the 1980s and 1990s, with Bermuda being one of the couple’s favorite destinations. They also traveled across the United States including Alaska and Hawaii and outside the US to the Caribbean,

Greece and the British Isles. Beginning in the 1990s an interest in genealogy took the couple to town offices and cemeteries all across New England in search of ancestors; now both can trace lineage back to the Mayflower. Barbara and Arthur moved to Punta Gorda in 1996, where Barbara was an active member of the First United Methodist Church and St. Andrews South Golf Course. In 2010 they moved to South Port Square, Port Charlotte. She will be greatly missed by friends and family: her husband of 63 years, Arthur E. Flint, of Port Charlotte, Fla.; children, Jeffrey A.

Important for Obama supporters to vote To the editor: While the Republican presidential candidates are auditioning for Donald Trump’s latest reality TV show it is important to remember that there is in fact a Democratic primary as well on Jan. 10. While the outcome of the Democratic primary isn’t as hotly contested as the Grand Old Party’s this year it is

important for supporters of President Obama to come out on Jan 10. New Hampshire’s ‘First in the Nation’ primary sets the tone for both parties through the primary season and on into the general election. If you support President Obama show that support in the voting booth on Jan. 10! Erik Corbett Glen

Ron Figuly is the one who should get real To the editor: Ron Figuly get over yourself. In response to Ron Figuly’s letter about the marriage and family between man, one woman, stating that it is creation, and get real. I believe you Mr. Figuly should be the one to “get real.” You are just simple minded. “God” has nothing to do with love. In fact religion in itself is ridiculous. You are relying your facts on a book sir, simply a book. History has documentation about Roman Gladiators having male lovers, and during the civil war, women

had partners to cope with their loneliness with their absent husbands. If you don’t like it, keep it to yourself — how about that? Love is love and there is nothing that you or your “god” can do about it. I have several gay friends here in the valley and I want them to be able to live a life they want to without people like you bashing them in response to their love interests. I don’t understand why this affects you. Keep your Bible at home sir, or just talk to God, since I am sure he will listen to you. Britney Anderson Conway

Shribman omitted one important candidate To the editor: David Shribman’s article about the fight for the GOP nomination actually omitted a couple of things. In his first paragraph he could have put that one is a serial adulterer and the other flip flops so much he can’t even decide which socks to wear.

He blatantly omitted the man who is constantly ignored by the media, the one who is consistently truthful, maintains his dignity and also maintains the same beliefs throughout his campaign. He could be the one to save the United States. Ian Dawson Conway and Yorkshire, U.K.

Bruce attributes to me a view on ‘marriage equality’ that I don’t hold To the editor: Do you suppose you could have a word with Susan Bruce? Explain to her that, no matter how hysterically upset those nasty Republicans make her, it’s bad form to misquote and mischaracterize what they’ve said? For example, she attributes to me a view on what she calls “marriage equality” that I don’t hold and haven’t expressed, styling my stated position as no more than some grudging political calculation. Since my position on this issue

has been open and unvarying since well before it became politically acceptable, and my most recent pronouncement on the subject, in this paper, doesn’t even by implication support Ms. Bruce’s description, her characterization is pure invention. Ms. Bruce’s routine, coarse fabrications cheapen public discourse; grown-ups need to step in. Maynard Thomson Freedom

How will you remember 2011?

How will I remember 2011? By seeing the pictures people took of me during the year. This is Ralph in Eaton. I know some people who were so stoned most of the time last year that they can't remember anything. The fact that many if not most of the Occupy North Conway picketers were/ are quite well off financially speaking. Just saying... You know what is so sickening to me is that things never change. We spend millions of dollars to build this state-ofthe-art security system jail, and we can't even keep prisoners in, and all they want is more help. And what I can't understand is that the superintendent down there needs to step up to the plate and take responsibility. He's in charge. He's the one who let that prisoner out. Don't blame it on the commissioners, don't blame it on the taxpayers and say you need another two or three millions dollars. That is the problem in this country; it's called personal responsibility. You're in charge, you screwed up, step up to the plate. Personally, I'll remember 2011 as a wonderful year with family and friends. However, I'll remember a terrible time in our country with the economics so bad and so many people unemployed. I would pray that voters in 2012 will be looking and getting more knowledgeable into the background and the experience of the person they will vote into the presidency. Obama was voted in for his youth and charisma, and that's the wrong way to vote. He had absolutely no experience in business, and only a short time in Congress. The only work Obama ever did was to become a community organizer. That is one who shows people how to get out and demonstrate. He's done everything possible to change our country, but not for the good of our country, only for his own socialist agenda. Please, please, voters, help get our country back to the greatness that always was before he became president, and vote in a candidate who will beat the worst president in the history of our country. The thing about the New Year? Only one more year of Obama. Thank God. Happy New Year! Go Romney! I'll remember 2011 as the year we spent trillions of dollars we don't have; the year where the public sector is bigger than the public sector. We are losing our liberty, we can stop this mess. This is Scott in Glen. A lot of winking and nodding is the quote from the CDS describing illegal structures damaged in Transvale Acres by Irene. That quote can also be applied to the tolerated environment system that led to Krista's death, and from that same pool comes a baby being beaten almost to death in Albany. Pathetic, disgusting cannibals who have the audacity to complain about Christmas trees and fireworks for the holidays. Take a good look in the mirror, people. Take a good look. What is so sad is that we have an infant almost beaten to death, and there has been no arrest. What is wrong with this picture? We will remember 2011 as the year that we realized that president Barry Obama and his lovely wife Michelle truly hate the country that he is leading. We also believe that it is a conscientious effort by the first president in American history ever to promote class war-

fare. And to make matters worse, that Barry Obama is the first president ever to cut the home heating assistance program in half, allowing our poor senior citizens and other people who have very little to freeze in the winter while the lovely Michelle goes gallivanting all over Hawaii with an entourage of 51 people. And, of course, it's even worse to recall that this wonderful messiah, the year he was sworn in, gas prices at the pump were $1.65 a gallon, and in 2011 it's $3.50, and this president makes no effort to lower it. He's doing everything to make sure that the prices go to $5, $6 a gallon. And finally, 2011 will bring to our minds that Barry Obama and his lovely life Michelle seriously want destroy this country. It's the first year that Christmas was banned from the Conway library. ••• The following Tele-Talk responses were posted on The Conway Daily Sun's Facebook page: I'm going to try not to, and move on. I don't want to. Blah. Nothing good happened this year. 2011 sucked, and I think it sucked for everyone. 2011 was pretty awesome for me. Just saying. Well, we all have good days and bad days. Guess the same goes for years. My daughter and her family coming back to New England, that made my year. The year that never ended. A year filled with disaster, awe, anger, annoyance and an ever-growing rift in the country. Frankly, bring on 2012! We had many blessings this year for which we are grateful. Sadly, we lost our 14-year-old lab this week so it ends on a sad note, but we have to make them all good years no matter what happens. More new friends, more new life opportunities, a few successes and some valuable lessons from a few failures — all in all, another good year. They are what you make them, so I say make them good! The year we lost our son, Liam, a mere three hours after he was born. Didn't know it was going to just be a short visit. It was not a good year for me. I say bring on 2012! My son came home from Afghanistan for the second time. 2011 was filled with a lot of sadness and mistakes, and from this came much personal discovery. Here's hoping that 2012 will bring understanding and happiness! We went on an epic angling quest to catch and eat every kind of freshwater fish in NH! So it was a good year to catch-n-all! Sadness from having to put down my 17-year-old dog who was my best buddy. I miss him very much. Happiness from buying a house. I lost my 18-year-old Chihuahua on Oct 14, 2007, and I to this day miss him very much. Getting a new dog from the shelter after having lost mine 3 1/2 years ago. Sparky has brought us great happiness, and between my son and our new dog, that's what gets me through every day! A year of steady growth. We doubled our number of weekly clients in 2011.

Food pantry reaches out to people in need in 11 towns To the editor: This letter of thanks is sent to you from S.O.C.N. (Southwest Oxford County Nutrition) located in Brownfield Maine. We are a “regional” food pantry serving those in need living in 11 towns located in western Maine and New Hampshire. Recently in the news there have been a number of articles on the need to help people in both Maine and New Hampshire. The Conway Daily Sun continues to do a wonderful public service that helps us all via its coverage of relevant topics. We thank The Conway Daily Sun very much for its contributions. In 2011, our 134 volunteers gave 11,500 hours to help feed our hungry neighbors; 123 of these volunteers are also clients, and are happy to help “payback” through their efforts. We never make this a requirement in order for people to receive food; most are happy to contribute as they can. Many outsiders never see this, but we see it every month. It is important to note that no one involved at S.O.C.N. receives any monetary payment. S.O.C.N. operates as a 100 percent volunteer organization; and we have a 12-year record of succeess. We also help many homebound and working poor who just cannot afford to attend the third Thursday of each month — our distribution day. In these cases, S.O.C.N. delivers to those in need. Southwest Oxford County Nutrition is available 24/7 to provide for emergency needs such as family tragedy or domestic violence. Southwest Oxford County Nutrition tries to work closely with local town governments in order to best help those who may have difficulty helping themselves during these difficult economic times. For the third year in a row, we were able to help many thousands of people in 10 towns in western Maine and one in New Hampshire by distributing to those in verified need over $500,000 of quality food. One secret to our success is that we obtain most of our food through a Food Bank, rather than depending entirely on food drives. This past year, we obtained about $10 worth of food for every dollar we spent. If we depend exclusively on food drives, our donors would in most cases be paying retail prices; we would be limited to $50,000 worth of food rather than 10 times that amount. We thank all for contributions in any and all forms, yet it is important to stress that “dollar” donations go much further than food donations. Our buying power allows us to leverage a $1 donation into $10 worth of food. For instance: a $1 can of food donated is just that. A $1 monetary donation is leveraged into 10 $1 cans of food! Much to our surprise, a lady in Fryeburg, on her own, without first talking to us, undertook raising money by calling on people and businesses. She raised $1,500, and we are very appreciative. This of course yielded $15,000 worth of food for people in serious

need. We owe much thanks to her, and the many that supported this effort, especially at a time in the economy when it might not be comfortable to ask for help or for businesses to give. At our major monthly distribution, which takes place on the third Thursday of every month, we have a number of professionals that volunteer their time. This past year we normally had two registered nurses that work with the elderly (foods that conflict with certain medicines, etc.), very young mothers (that need a friendly coach, or that need help enrolling in the WIC program) or just ordinary people that are having problems. Most of the year, we have also had two professional nutritionists in attendance that worked with people as needed. A retired professor heads our casework team. Every family goes through an interview session to help insure that we meet their nutritional needs, and also to prevent abuse. We also provide help to address the root causes of their problems. These professionals donate a few days a month, but we would lose all of their help if we were to be divided into 11 small food pantries. Southwest Oxford County Nutrition works closely with a local thrift shop to meet the needs for warm clothing and with organizations to aid in winter fuel assistance. We work with Western Maine Family Literacy program; one out of three adults here cannot read or write. Most food pantries distribute on a “three-day” basis. We believe that if we gave out three days of food to a family at a visit we would keep them in a state of emergency. Our goal is to provide 10 days of food per visit. Frail seniors take less than we offer, and often families with teens often ask for a little more. We check each month the number of pounds of food and the attendance, and we are always able to meet the needs of everyone. We work as hard as we can to follow the example of the Good Samaritan. We always have Plans “A,” “B,” and “C” for each major operation. In 12 years of operations, through the generosity of those willing to share their good fortune, we have never run out of food or money to purchase more food. We have come uncomfortably close. Honestly, in these trying economic times adequate funding is becoming extremely difficult to find. We thank everyone out there who have contributed in the past and encourage new patrons to consider helping us in the future. Thanks again to the wonderful people in America that have helped us to help those in serious need, and may God bless you!

"You know it must be a fair one if I'm supporting it," he said. "This base budget is virtually $600,000 less than last year's base rate," board member Dick Klement said. "We retiring a $601,000 bond so this budget is level funded." Under the budget, school superintendent Carl Nelson explained the reduction comes despite a 5.8 percent jump in health insurance along with an increase in the contribution amount to the state retirement system and a rise in heating oil and electricity. Other articles on the warrant include No. 1 — election of school officers. No. 2 — operating budget. Supported by the board 7-0. No. 3 is the Kennett High facilities maintenance fund for $54,443 ($36,380 will be offset by sending towns). Supported by the board 7-0. No. 4 is Kennett Middle School facilities maintenance fund for $17,086 ($7,681 to be offset by sending towns). Supported by the board 7-0. No. 5 is elementary schools' facilities maintenance fund for $9,900 ($1,271 to be offset by sending towns). Supported by the board 7-0. (Articles 3-5 are required under the 20-year tuition contract with sending towns Albany, Bartlett, Eaton, Freedom, Jackson, Madison and Tamworth.) No. 6 is a new contract agreement between the school board and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (bus drivers and custodians) for the 2012-13 school year to fund employee salaries and benefits. Negotiations are ongoing. No. 7 is for a one-year collective bargaining agreement between the school board and the Conway Education Association (teachers) for the 2012-13 school year to fund employee salaries and benefit. A tentative deal has been reached; both parties need to accept the agreement created by their representatives. No. 8 is for a one-year collective bargaining agreement between the school board and the Conway Educational Support Personnel for the 2012-13 school year to fund employee salaries and benefits. A tentative deal has been reached; both parties need to accept the agreement created by their representatives. No. 9 is for Project SUCCEED (Schools Under Contract Creating Enriching Extended Days) at John Fuller, Pine Tree and Conway Elementary for $29,925. Organizers of the program anticipate $20,000 in revenue to offset taxes, and additional grants would be sought. Supported by the board 7-0. No. 10 is for the school buildings maintenance fund for $100,000 (the fund will be capped at $500,000). Supported by the board 7-0. No. 11 is a capital reserve fund for buses in the amount of $186,000 for the purchase of two school buses for the 2012-13 school year. Supported by the board 7-0. No. 12 is for the first of a three-year phase for the Conway School District's technology plan, $75,000. Supported by the board 7-0.

No. 13 is for $55,000 to purchase and install a new heating and ventilation unit at the Kennett Middle School. Supported by the board 7-0. No. 14 is for an expendable trust for special education for $100,000 (the fund will be capped at $500,000). Supported by the board 6-1 (Davison in the minority). There is currently $200,000 in the fund. Davison wondered if the article could be skipped for a year given the increased number of warrant articles and the $1.15 million price tag connected to them. "It's very possible we will be into some of that $200,000 trust fund this year," Becky Jefferson, director of finance for SAU 9, said. "We're still waiting to hear back from the Department of Education. We could be into the fund for $50,000 to the full $200,000. Hopefully we'll get an answer by January." Fellow board member Dick Klement believes the article is needed. "The special ed budget was already reduced quite a bit," he said. "I'm afraid there's not going to be anything if we need it. I'm inclined to leave the article in there in case (the district) gets run over by a train." "I guess we could leave it to the voters since it was overwhelmingly defeated last year," Davison replied. No. 15 is for $37,002 to 70 percent fund the sous chef position in the MWV Career and Technical Center. The position was previously funded through a Carl Perkins Federal Grant which is no longer available. Supported by the board 7-0. No. 16 is for $22,548 to fund 30 percent of the student advocate position at Kennett High. The post was previously funded through an Ed Jobs grant, which is no longer available. Supported by the board 6-1 (Davison in the minority). No. 17 is for $166,794 for three teachers at $54,098 each and $1,500 per school for supplies and equipment to establish a full-day kindergarten program in each of the three elementary school. Supported by the board 4-3 (Davison, Klement and Rick Breton in the minority). "The only way that I would be in favor of this would be if we could offset the cost by students returning to the district," Davison said, referring to a special education report that indicated the district had five out-ofdistrict kindergarten placements at the moment at a cost of $40,000 per student. "I'll also be voting no because I don't believe the dollar figure comes anywhere close to accurate," Klement added. He believes the figure is more in the neighborhood of $250,000. Board member Syndi White, who also serves on the special education committee for the district, said it's impossible to determine from year to year what there will be for kindergarten students in need of out-of-district services. "We need to look at this as not just an effort to save money on out of district placements," Janine McLauchlan, board chairman, said. "Let's look at the positives such as being able to give a full day of kindergarten within the district." No. 18 is for $105,000 to replace a see next page

BOILER from page one

14 state representatives, called the delegation, approves county budgets which commissioners manage with help from department heads. In September, residents moved into the nursing home, Mountain View Community. The new home was designed to get much of its heat and hot water from a wood pellet system. Two wood pellet boilers were supposed to save the county tens of thousands of dollars per year in fuel costs compared to propane. The plan is install the pellet boilers in the nearby old nursing home and then pipe in the heat. The boilers and the piping were paid for with about $400,000 of federal money. Since opening, Mountain View Community has been running on a more costly propane back-up system. Bonnette, Page & Stone, of Laconia, was the only company to bid on the installation job. BPS oversaw the construction of Mountain View Community. BPS recommends using the same major subcontractors that worked on the $23.5 million nursing home, which came in $2 million under budget. "We're ready when you are," said BPS president Randy Remick to the commissioners. Commissioners sent out requests for bids for the installation to five companies that bid on providing the boilers. Commissioners advertised on the county's website and on a federal energy website. "I don't like the price of $375,000," said commission chair David Sorensen. Remick said the job is quite complex. Further, a federal labor law called the Davis Bacon act added $75,000 to the proposed cost. The law says the more expensive pay rates for workers in New Hampshire's southern counties now also applies to Carroll County. BPS could have done the job for less money had the commission elected to do it when BPS was working every day in Ossipee. Remick asked the commission not to rebid the project. "We're never a fan of rebidding with the idea of public right to know because everything we've done is right out there for everyone to see," said Remick. "It's like playing poker with your cards on the table." But the commission decided to re-bid after Remick left the room. Delegation member David Babson

portion of roof at John Fuller School. Supported by the board 7-0. No. 19 is for $115,000 to replace a portion of roof at Kennett Middle School. Supported by the board 7-0. No. 20 is for $98,166 to provide for four academic teams at Kennett Middle School. Supported by the board 4-3 (Davison, Klement and Rick Breton in the minority). No. 21 is a non-binding referendum which asks voters are you in favor of closing an elementary school in the Conway School District? No. 22 is to transact any other business that may come before the legislative body. There are several important dates on the budget calendar. * Jan. 18 or 25: All of the school district's administrators will meet with the Conway Municipal Budget Committee

(R-Ossipee) chided the commission for not putting the bids into trade publications. Its unclear if most of the companies that commissioners asked to bid are even in the installation business, he said. "If you're a big construction company, I'm sorry, you're not going every morning to the Carroll County website looking to see if there's a project," said Babson. "The Dodge Report is the place to go." Babson described Remick's concern as "valid." Effingham resident Maureen Spencer questioned how local companies were going to know about the request for bids since they weren't even advertised in the local newspapers. Prior to being rejected, Remick estimated the installation process could take up to 12 weeks. That would push the completion time into the spring. Running the wood pellet boilers in the winter was supposed to generate much of the projected savings. "We're in a hard place," said Sorensen. "The longer we wait the less savings we'll get on propane." Installation would have cost even more money if the county had to construct a new building to house the boilers, said Remick. The boilers may get delivered in early January but the commission didn't know exactly where to put them. The boilers might have to sit outside or the commission would need to get some heavy equipment, like a crane, to put the boilers in a building. Sorensen said the boilers weigh tons. He wasn't sure if keeping them outside would void the warranties. Part of the reason the wood pellet boilers weren't installed sooner is the delegation dithered about tearing down the entire old nursing home, said Sorensen and commissioner Dorothy Solomon. "The delegation is still, in the back of some minds, is thinking about throwing down this building (the old nursing home)," said Solomon. "From my perspective so many utterly crazy ideas have come out regarding what we need to do. What can be thought of next?" Lawmakers approved $1 million for rehabilitating the old nursing home building for other uses such as office space, laundry and maintenance. A substantial part of that budget would be used to tear the wings off the old building. to answer any questions budget committee members may have. The meeting is slated for 6:30 p.m. in the Conway Professional Development Center. * February at a date yet to be determined: The Municipal Budget Committee hearing will be held in the Loynd Auditorium at Kennett High School, 6:30 p.m. * The budget committee will be meeting on a regular basis in December, January and February reviewing both the school and town budgets as well as those from the surrounding precincts and non-profit organizations. * March 5: The deliberative session of Conway School District annual meeting will be held in the Loynd Auditorium at Kennett High at 7 p.m. * On April 10, the voting portion of Conway School District annual meeting will take place at the Conway Community Building in Center Conway from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

$45,000 settlement will pay for repairs to jail wall BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — The county reached an out-of-court settlement for fixing a wall that's tipping at the department of corrections building. However, some wonder if $45,000 will be enough to make the repairs. The lofty gable-end wall began peeling off the nine-year-old jail in the summer of 2010. At that time, officials said the wall had tipped away from the top of the building by an inch and a half. At that time, officials closed the nearest parking lot for days until the wall was deemed safe. On Wednesday, commissioners said the tipping hadn't gotten worse since last year. Commission chair David Sorensen also said the wall was tipping by less than an inch. The faulty wall, which is in the administration's end of the building, has nothing to do with the jail break that occurred earlier this month. On Wednesday, Sorensen announced that the county has settled with the jail's designer, a company called SMRT, for $45,000. The builder, Northern Grainger, had already gone out of business. For some reason, a construction company that

agreed to fix the wall for $29,000 has backed away from the project, said Sorensen. "What should happen is that $45,000 should pay for our attorney and hopefully the repair to the jail wall," said Sorensen. When asked if the commissioners had estimates for the repair bill, Sorensen replied that they didn't. However, the commission asked construction management company called Bonnette, Page & Stone to look at the wall. Sorensen said he wasn't sure if the company had done so. "So the $45,000 is premised upon what?" asked former county commissioner Chip Albee. "How do we come up with $45,000?" Sorensen replied said a construction company from Maine had agreed to do repair work for $29,000 and the balance is for attorney fees. "We were asking for more (in settlement money) and they were asking for less and we settled for $45,000," said Sorensen. "It should take care of both." State Representative David Babson (R-Ossipee) also questioned the basis for the settlement. He wanted to know why the construction company backed out. Babson wondered why the commission didn't get another price quote.

Charles Richard Rhoades

Charles Richard Rhoades, 97, of Center Conway, formerly of Plant City, Fla., ended his earthly journey on Dec. 27, 2011. Born May 17, 1914 in Napoli, N.Y., Dick is survived by his wife of 76 years, Aleene, their daughter, Cindy Russell and husband, Brett, five grandchildren, and ten greatgrandchildren. He was predeceased by his daughter Jo A. Trowbridge and her husband Jay. Dick and his wife Aleene, spent a lifetime in New York State where he was a public school music educator and subsequently the founder and head of the music department at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, N.Y. In 1970, they retired to Florida where Dick became involved as the music department head at Hillsborough College near Tampa before taking his second retirement. Dick continued to keep music in his life by directing the Men’s Chorus at Country Meadows, Plant City until he was 93. In 2008, they made Center Conway their permanent home. For the past three years, Dick and Aleene have been served well by a staff of caring and loving home care givers. The family is especially grateful for the care provided by the devoted staff as well as Steve Dexter from Visiting Nurses, and their primary care provider, Geraldine Lau, MSN, ARNP. The continued support of many individuals has given Dick and Aleene the opportunity to remain in their own home where they enjoyed their family and friends and many activities. Mr. Rhoades began a long career in music education when he was graduated from the State Normal School of the University System of the State of New York, at Fredonia in 1937. He earned his Master of Science degree from Ithaca College, 1951. Dick was eulogized by his teaching colleague in Syracuse, as a “can do” guy who could always get the job done. He will be remembered by all who knew him as an outgoing, friendly conversationalist who was always ready with a good story. The following observations about Dick’s professional and private life were made in a letter of recommen-

dation to his second career as an administrator of the music department at Hillsboro Community College in Tampa, Florida. “Mr. Rhoades is especially fitted to teacher education. He works unusually well with others of all age brackets … He likes people and has the patience to bring them out and especially so with young people. He is the type of man accustomed to working with strong people in his area and in bonding a good rapport between the Arts and the other educational areas. His wife is a charming person also dedicated to Mr. Rhoades’ activities and ideals. . . The man’s sense of humor is refreshing. . . All in all he is an unusual fellow who relates in the classroom, from an office of administration, and off campus. . . He makes a good golf partner, too, but plays this line as a true dubber…” Dick was a multi-faceted man with a wealth of handyman skills including building everything from grandfather clocks and curio cabinets to the family’s camping trailer. In addition, he was a composer and enjoyed playing his own individual jazz style of hits from the 1930s and 1940s on the piano. A service celebrating Dick’s long and full life will be scheduled at the pleasure of the family in the spring.

Kennett girls win Mike Lee Holiday Basketball Bash BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The Kennett High girls basketball team had a nice holiday break and became familiar with downtown Farmington in the process. The Eagles successfully defended their title at the annual Mike Lee Holiday Basketball Bash, winning all four games it played in Farmington. Seniors Jordan Murphy and Kaitlin “Shaq” Taylor were both selected to the All Tournament team while junior Lauren Kidder, who was sidelined with an injured ankle, became the first non-player in the history of the tournament to receive the Sportsmanship Award. She kept the scorebook for all four of her team’s games, plus all three of the KHS boys

contests, earning high praise from all of the tournament officials for her upbeat attitude. The Eagles also brought home another trophy with senior Jessie Wagner winning the three-point contest by sinking nine shots in the finals. All in all it was a good week for the Lady Eagles. “Things went very well,” Larry Meader, Eagles’ head coach, said. “We got to enjoy some success as a team and got everyone some valuable playing time. I’m hoping this sets us up pretty well getting back into our schedule.” Eagles opened play against Nute (0-4 in Division IV) on Dec. 26 and breezed to a 50-17 victory. KHS led 12-5 after the first quarter; 32-10 at the half; and 46-10 after three periods while holding Nute scoreless for eight minutes.

Kennett then went on to beat a game Woodsville (5-1 in Division IV) squad on Tuesday afternoon; then Pittsfield (6-0 in Division IV) on Wednesday to reach the finals. KHS topped Mascoma (2-4 in Division III) 44-36 in the championship game. The Eagles got off to a quick start in the finals and that momentum carried them to the title. “We finally came out energized in the first quarter,” Meader said. “Our first quarters the rest of the week had been sluggish for whatever reason. Kaylin Samia carried us early on. Our energy was great right out of the gate, but we missed our first 10 shots. Kaylin hit a basket and ended up eight seven in the quarter. She also got a number of big rebounds.”

KHS goes 1-2 over ice break

KHS goes 1-2 in Farmington




CONWAY — Kennett High went 1-2 at the Maine High School Invitational Christmas Tournament in Portland last week, splitting two games on Wednesday (4-1 loss to NewingtonBerlin of Conencticut and a 5-4 win over Lewiston) and losing 3-0 Thursday (versus Cheverus). “It’s tough playing three games in 30 hours but I thought the kids competed, they gave a good effort in the two losses,” said head coach Michael Lane. “We played some tough teams. Hopefully this makes us better heading into the grind of January and February.” Lane said the tournament is more of a showcase event rather than geared specifically to wins and losses which allows Kennett to work on several different lineup and power-play schemes. “It’s a good play for us to go,” he said. “It’s an opportunity for us to play against some really good teams and get everyone plenty of playing time.” The Eagles opened up play Wednesday morning in Saco, facing Newington-Berlin. Senior John Bishop started in goal and was tested early and was up or the challenge making several key stops to keep the game scoreless. Late in the first NewingtonBerlin got on the board when a screen shot from the point found the back of then net to make it 1-0. In the second period, KHS carried the play only to see Newington-Berlin score two goals within a minute of each other, the first on the power-play. “We took a penalty, they scored and then they took advantage of a defensive zone turnover and real quick we were down by three,” Lane said. “… We need to get a couple of bounces to go our way in the offensive end. We need to go into the corners, work a little hard and create a few more chances. This is too talented a team to see HOCKEY page 14

CONWAY — A work in progress is the best phrase to describe the Kennett High boys basketball team thus fart his season. The Eagles went 1-2 at the annual Mike Lee Holiday Basketball Bash in Farmington last week. The boys from Conway dominated one game and then came up just short in two other contests that went right down to the wire. On Monday Kennett opened tournament play by beating Nute 89-37 in what Coach Steve Cote described as a “good overall effort with balanced scoring.” The Eagles got off a rare fast start against the Rams, storming out to a 20-12 lead after the opening quarter. KHS scored a season-best 26 points in the second period to lead 46-21 at the intermission. The lead ballooned to 63-29 after three quarters. The following day, the Eagles locked up in a barnburner with Franklin. The contest see-sawed back and forth before the Golden Tornadoes pulled out a narrow 57-55 victory. “We lost a heartbreaker to Franklin,” Cote said. “We had battled from behind for most of the game and took a two point lead with under 30 seconds left on a three-point bomb by Jordan Stocker. We pressured fullcourt to slow the ball down and, unforsee KHS page 14

Indoor track Eagles open their season at UNH BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Competing against some of top schools in New Hampshire, the Kennett High boys and girls indoor track teams opened their season on the oval at the University of New Hampshire on Monday. Thirty-three Eagles made the trek to Durham for the meet.

“I’m always impressed with how we do considering we do the bulk of our training outside,” Bernie Livingston, Eagles’ head coach, said. “For the first meet, the kids handled themselves relaly well. We had a good time. What’s really nice is we get a good amouhnt of parental involvment and also had a lot fo alumni come to Monday’s meet, which is really neat.”

The KHS girls finished sixth overall out of nine schools with 15 points. Coe-Brown Academy captured the top spot with 73 points followed by Timberlane, 70; Manchester Central, 41; Salem, 38; Nashua North, 20; Kennett, 15; Spaulding, 15; Goffstown, 14; and Bow, 8. see TRACK page 14

Raiders finish third at Atlantics BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy wrestling team traveled to Wells last week to participate in the tradition rich Atlantic Invitational Tournament. Marshwood took top honors with 166 points followed by Camden Hills, 162 points, and the Raiders finished third with 94.5 team points. Fryeburg placed four wrestlers in the finals, but ran into some challenges against some out of state teams and a tough class A Marshwood squad. Connor Sheehan decisioned Tyler Davidson of Marshwood 3-0 in the finals to win the 130 weight class. Sheehan, who has cruised thus far this year was tested according to coach Bryce Thurston. “He finally got a good challenge,” Thurston said. “He faced a tough Marshwood kid. Connor was able to shoot, but it was hard to finish his shots. He had opportunities to score points, but the Marshwood kid made some good counters. Connor controlled the whole match.” At 120, brother Zack Sheehan faced Colin Sevigny of Wells. Sevigny built an early lead and held Sheehan off for a 7-5 win. Sheehan will get other opportunities to face Sevigny, so he will look to measure his progress in these matches. Thurston commented on the possibility of these wrestlers meeting not only through this year but also in the future. “The Wells kid is a sophomore and Zack is a freshman, so they will have some good matches. Wells is in the same class as us, so they will see each other a lot. Sevigny is a great wrestler. He’s been wrestling all summer long. Zack is right there with him” Jake Thurston reached the finals at 145 where he met Cody Hughes of Marshwood. Hughes decisioned Thurston 5-3. Coach Thurston noted the Marshwood theme when summarizing his son’s second place finish. “Jake ran into another tough kid from Marshwood,” he said. “They have a good squad this year. Jake fell behind early and kept trying to catch up, but he just ran out of time.” C.J. Bartlett defeated the No. 1 seed to reach the finals against Casey Quinn of Hollis-Brookline in Massachusetts. Bartlett was pinned early, but Thurston felt good about Bartlett advancing to the finals at 160. Matt Frost pinned Zach Stevens of Lisbon for a Our

third place finish. Ian McFawn placed fourth at 182. Although ninth grader Trevor Henschel did not advance in this tournament, Thurston thought his performance deserved being noted. Henschel has cut weight to reach 170, and even at this weight, he is wrestling older, more experienced wrestlers. According to Thurston, Henschel is making progress. “He cut a weight class and did well as a ninth grader,” he said. “He is learning the ropes of high school wrestling. He did a good job starting to gain confidence in himself. He still needs to adjust to his new weight class, and he is still learning how to get energy back after weigh in. Trevor also wrestles in a tough weight class. At 170, he is wrestling mostly juniors and seniors. That’s a tough way to enter high school wrestling.” Thurston summarized the team’s performance. “We had a good day. We didn’t have Kirk Hubbard. He was sick and he likely would have scored points. Third is pretty good. We got fourth last year, and we placed more kids in finals this year.”

I In the third play was even, with the shots even at 9-9, but Newington-Berlin scored the only goal, winning 4-1. Bishop finished with 16 saves. The Eagles played a rare hockey doubleheader on Wednesday when later in the day they took on Lewiston, winning 5-4 in a shootout. “We didn’t have our legs at all,” said Lane. “We sat around for much of the game and let them dictate (play).” Freshman Josh Kondrat started for the Eagles. He played the first 23 minutes allowing just a breakaway goal. Trailing 1-0 the Eagles scored four straight goals. Kelly scored the first followed by Nick Massa, who finished off a beautiful backhanded pass from Justin Munck. In the third frame, Dillon Smith scored two goals 30 seconds apart with Kevin Murphy picking up the assist on both. Freshman Bobby Davis closed out the game in net. The Eagles watched Lewiston erase the three goal lead late in the third, tying the game with eight seconds to play, sending the game to a shootout. In the shootout the Eagles elected Smith, Connor Todd, Munck, Massa and Murphy to shoot. It never made it to Murphy as the first four Eagles scored and Kondrat stopped two of three Lewiston shooters to win the game for the Eagles.

Raiders face iron of B FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy boys basketball team opened its 2011-2012 season against York and Falmouth this week, and the Raiders could not match up with two of the favorites in Western B hoops. On Friday, the Raiders got behind early against York and then fell 89-40. On Tuesday, the Raiders were outmatched again, as Falmouth dropped the Raiders 66-37. After jumping out to a 22-5 first quarter advantage, York grew the lead to 41-14 at halftime. The Raiders started to put points on the board in the second half, but they could not slow down the Wildcats, who added another 48 points to their halftime total. Sophomore Walker Mallory led the Raiders with nine points. Mallory connected on three 3-pointers. Djorje Obradovich added 8 points and Bright Amoako 7. Aaron Todd had 16 points and 12 rebounds for York while Adam Bailey scored 13 points and Liam Langaas added 11 for the Wildcats. Things were no easier on Tuesday night, but the Raiders adjusted to the intensity of the regular season against Falmouth. The Yachtsmen jumped out to an 18-9 first quarter lead and a 30-14 halftime advantge, but the Raiders were playing competitively. In the third quarter the Falmouth club put 25 points on the board to put the game out of reach by building a 55-20 lead after three quarters. Amoako notched 13 points and Obradovich added 8 to lead the Raiders. — Charlie Tryder

tunately, a long pass got behind our defense and we were forced to foul with about 10 seconds left.” Franklin hit both free throws to tie the game and then stole a pass and laid it in with under five seconds left. “Our desperation half-court shot feel short and we lost by two,” Cote said. “Our Achilles heel so far has been from the charity stripe – 17 for 37 versus Franklin didn’t help the cause.” Alex Milford led KHS with 13 points. The Eagles wrapped up tournament play with a hard-fought 67-61 loss to a solid Pittsfield team. “We kept it close with a strong defensive effort and carried an eight point lead into the fourth quarter,” Cote said. “We just haven’t found the unit that will protect our valuable possessions at the end of a game. To Pittsfield’s credit,” he continued, “they simply wanted it more than us at the end. They dominated the boards in the final two or three minutes and we just can’t allow our opponents to get so many second and third scoring opportunities. The good news is that we played significantly better (Wednesday) in many ways – but especially on the defensive end.” The teams played to a 10-10 tie after the first quarter. KHS went up 32-30 at the half and led 56-50 after three periods, but the Panthers stormed back late to win. Cote said it was good to get in three games over the holiday. “We enjoy playing in the Farmington – Mike Lee Holiday Bash,” he said. “The competition is good and we can play several teams we do not see otherwise. The Eagles (0-3) will return to the regular session action on Friday when the Bulldogs of Bedford visit The Nest for a 6:30 p.m. tip-off. Bedford, who hosts Hollis-Brookline on Tuesday, is off to a 1-2 start in Division II play following losses to Oyster River, 73-60; and Pelham, 64-25; and a win over Goffstown, 78-71. “Bedford is going to be a tough D II matchup for us on Friday,” Cote said of the Bulldogs, who many had picked as one of the top teams in the division. “The guys are excited for the challenge and we will play as hard as we can and compete to the very end.”

EAGLES from page 13

KHS carried a 10 point lead into the halftime break only to see the Royals net the first six points to open the third frame. Erin Milford got the lead back to six when she picked off a Mascoma pass at center court and drove the floor for a layup. The Royals remained aggressive setting the stage for a nail-biter in the fourth quarter. “They actually cut the lead to two points, but our girls did a nice job of executing at the offensive end, protecting the ball and we hit our free throws at the end, it’s the way you want to finish games,” Meader said. “…Overall it was good to be able to play four games and improve on some of the things we needed to work on,” he added. “…It was nice to see Shaq and Jordan make the All Tournament team, they both played really well all week. I think Jordan might have been our high-scorer every game with 14, 12, 11 and 10. Lauren Kidder getting the sportsmanship award was very cool. The officials talked to our coahces before the finals and asked if we would mind if she got the award — we were thrilled. Although she couldn’t play, she still gave the team everything she had.” The Eagles, who are 2-2 in Division II play, will return to regular season action on Friday when they travel to Bedford. The Bulldogs are 3-1 in league playing having topped Souhegan (1-1), 45-37; Goffstown (2-1), 48-29; and Pelham (1-2), 61-24, while the lone blemish was a 44-35 setback at home to Oyster River (2-2). “Bedford is viewed as one of the top five or six teams in the division,” Meader said. “They’ll be a challenge for us, especially on their floor.”

by Scott Adams

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll likely find that you don’t have the time to indulge in media because real life will be more fascinating to you than any fictional entertainment out there. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In one moment you think that a problem can’t be solved. In the next moment you realize that it’s the sort of thing that gets solved every day. You’re very close to the answer. Keep digging. Ask everyone around. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You do things differently from the way your parents did, and they did things differently from the way their parents did. Today you’ll note these differences with a sense of pride. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The things you can’t see or own or control are far more valuable than the material things that can occupy so much of your attention and time. You know this and will prioritize accordingly. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Handling what is going on now will be a bit of a challenge -- not because it’s a difficult circumstance, but because it’s so easy that you may mentally drift to another place in time while you work. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 3). You’ll sense which options will be the most prosperous and choose accordingly. Your practical approach to love will bond you firmly as a cohesive team. While you may appear to aim for materialistic goals, what’s accomplished will go beyond the tangible into the sublime. Joint ventures excel in March and April. Libra and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 25, 4, 10 and 19.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When was the last time you had endless stretches of hours and nothing to do to fill them? It’s been a long while. Rearrange things to give yourself more of that most opulent of luxuries: time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll spend much of your day in maintenance mode. This sends a signal to the universe that you’re happy with what you have, and you’ll soon wind up with even more of it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A kind gesture you made long ago will be reciprocated. The warm feelings have been simmering this whole time, though it wasn’t clear to the other person until now exactly how to give back. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don’t feel responsible for all the ills of the world, but you still want to make it better. What you do to help others will bring immediate comfort. It will give you hope to see the signs that healing is taking place. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone who is very persistent may finally get your attention. There is a lesson for you in this, and you will be inspired to embody the spirit of persistence regarding another area of your life. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The one you adore needs you, too. There’s great alchemy at work in this relationship. What you have together is greater than the sum of its parts. A magical element rises from the mix. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Get organized. You have all the hard resources necessary to make a project work. All you need now is to line them up and point them in the same direction.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, January 3, 2012— Page 19

Today is Tuesday, Jan. 3, the third day of 2012. There are 363 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 3, 1959, Alaska became the 49th state as President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed a proclamation. On this date: In 1521, Martin Luther was excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Leo X. In 1777, Gen. George Washington’s army routed the British in the Battle of Princeton, N.J. In 1861, more than two weeks before Georgia seceded from the Union, the state militia seized Fort Pulaski at the order of Gov. Joseph E. Brown. The Delaware House and Senate voted to oppose secession from the Union. In 1911, the first postal savings banks were opened by the U.S. Post Office. (The banks were abolished in 1966.) In 1938, the March of Dimes campaign to fight polio was organized. In 1949, in a pair of rulings, the U.S. Supreme Court said that states had the right to ban closed shops. In 1958, the first six members of the newly formed U.S. Commission on Civil Rights held their first meeting at the White House. In 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower announced the United States was formally terminating diplomatic and consular relations with Cuba.

Page 22 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, January 3, 2012

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married 11 years. We went through eight years of fertility treatments before having our twins. When they were a year old, we discovered I was pregnant with our third child. The twins are now 2 1/2 and the baby is almost a year old. For the first time in our marriage, my husband and I are at an impasse. We have two embryos left and need to decide what to do. We either use them or destroy them. I think we need to give the embryos the chance they were meant to have. However, my husband is concerned only with the financial side of it as we have been living on one salary and things are tight. My heart aches over this. Do I do what I believe is right and stand by my religious and moral beliefs, and take the chance my husband will resent me for the rest of our marriage? I’m afraid I’ll resent him if I have to destroy them. I’d appreciate some words of wisdom. -- DEADLOCKED IN NEW JERSEY DEAR DEADLOCKED: This isn’t an either/or question. I discussed it with Diane Goodman, the past president of the Academy of California Family Formation Lawyers, who suggests a third option. Your embryos could be donated for embryo adoption by a couple who have been unable to conceive, and who would love to raise them. For more information, you should contact an attorney who specializes in family formation, or contact the Snowflakes Frozen Embryo Adoption and Donation Program. Its phone number is 714-693-5437 and its website is DEAR ABBY: I am 29 and met my birth mother last month for the first time. She abandoned two other children besides me. “Angie” is an alcoholic and has cirrhosis of the liver. When I met her she was in rehab and had been sober for two weeks. The day after she was released she was rearrested for driving with a revoked license. The following day she was arrested for DUI.

It’s obvious that my birth mother has a major addiction, and my heart breaks for her because she has no support system. Should I reach out and help her or continue on with my life? My friends and family are afraid I’ll get hurt, but it’s hard to sit back and do nothing. Any words of wisdom will help. -- CONFUSED AND TORN IN ST. LOUIS DEAR CONFUSED AND TORN: Before involving yourself any further with Angie, take some time to visit Al-Anon (listed in your phone directory) and Adult Children of Alcoholics ( That you want to help her is laudable, but it’s important that you fully understand what you’re letting yourself in for if you do. Much as you might wish to, you cannot “fix” other people -- only they can do that. The Serenity Prayer from AA says it clearly: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” It applies to you. DEAR ABBY: My ex-wife, from whom I was divorced for many years, died recently. Our middle-aged daughter, who grew up in her mother’s care, was unhappy that I chose not to attend the funeral. (Actually, I never considered going.) Not only would plane fare have been a financial burden, my ex and I hadn’t communicated with each other for more than 30 years. She remarried and I didn’t. Was I wrong for not being there? I don’t understand our daughter’s feelings in the matter. -- MEANT NO DISRESPECT, MESA, ARIZ. DEAR MEANT NO DISRESPECT: Funerals aren’t for the deceased as much as they are for the living. Because you didn’t mention whether you had maintained contact with your daughter since your divorce from her mother, I can only guess that she felt she needed your emotional support during that sad time, and that would explain her reaction to your absence.
