Next up: New Hampshire primary

Political eyes shift to Granite State; Bachmann withdraws; 44 names on the ballots BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Now all eyes are on New Hampshire. The political focus shifts from the Iowa caucuses to New Hampshire and the firstin-the-nation primary this Tuesday. Asked Tuesday night at a town hall meet-

ing in Peterborough if he had a message to the winner of the Iowa caucuses, former Utah governor Jon Huntsman, who skipped Iowa to campaign exclusively in New Hampshire, said, "It would be, 'Welcome to New Hampshire; nobody cares (about Iowa).'" Results from Tuesday's caucus had former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney on top by just eight votes, 30,015

over former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, 30,007, followed by Texas Congressman Ron Paul, 26,219; former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, 16,251; Texas Governor Rick Perry, 12,604; Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, 6,073; and Huntsman, 745. see PRIMARY page 3

Tiny towns fight for post offices FOX, Ark. (NY Times)— Along with the residents of other tiny towns across the country, from Challenge, Calif., to Economy, Ind., the people of Fox, Ark. learned last summer that their post office was being studied for possible closing by the United States Postal Service. It was one of the more than 3,600 deemed by the postal authorities to have too little a workload — less than $27,500 annual revenue is one such measurement — or to be too close to another office to justify keeping open by an agency that is billions of dollars in debt and facing a steeply and steadily declining revenue stream. The response, here as elsewhere, has been swift. Letters have been sent, petitions drawn up. People have taken day trips to their representatives’ offices, bringing so much political pressure that Congress persuaded the Postal Service last month to declare a moratorium on the closings until May. Still, McKinney Boyd, a spokesman for the Postal Service, said the process would pick right back up at the end of the moratorium. “We understand that many people in small communities are extremely passionate about their post offices, but at the same time we’re losing more than $23 million a day,” he said. “With those kinds of losses, the Postal Service has to look at ways to offset its expenses.”

Europe moves toward ban on Iran oil ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

PARIS (NY Times) — The countries of the European Union have agreed in principle to impose an embargo on Iranian oil, but there are many details to resolve before a decision is taken by heads of state and government at the end of January, European and French diplomats said Wednesday. France has been pushing hard for an embargo and sanctions targeting Iran’s central bank as a way to increase pressure on Iran to negotiate seriously on a halt

to uranium enrichment and an end to its apparent effort to build a nuclear weapon. Tehran has refused to stop enrichment and denies any military intent. In 2010, European countries bought some 18 percent of Iranian oil exports, with most of the rest going to Asia. So a European oil embargo would have a limited but significant effect on Iran, which depends heavily on its oil exports for cash. Oil represents about 60 percent of Iran’s economy, and Tehran has warned that it might shut

the Straits of Hormuz, a crucial shipping route, if an oil embargo is imposed. At the end of December, lower-ranking diplomats agreed in Brussels to the shape of a European oil embargo on Iran, vowing to meet objections by some states that have significant oil imports from Iran, like Italy, Spain and Greece. Those countries also expressed concerns about the impact on their already fragile economies of the increase in oil prices that would inevitably follow a sudden embargo.

McCain backs Romney after Chinese official accused of poisoning tycoon’s cat stew Santorum’s surge in Iowa MANCHESTER (NY Times) — Mitt Romney marked his arrival in New Hampshire on Wednesday with an endorsement by Senator John McCain, one of the state’s favorite adopted sons. The endorsement came a day after Romney won the Iowa caucuses by a mere eight votes and helped Romney consolidate his support among the Republican establishment. “New Hampshire is the state that will catapult him onto victory in a very short period of time,”

McCain declared to applause at a rally here. McCain, who was the party’s nominee in 2008, gave a fiery speech against President Obama in what sounded like a reprise of that campaign. Romney hailed the outcome of the Iowa caucuses, declaring, “My goodness, but what a squeaker.” He implored New Hampshire voters to ratify the result in the state’s primary next week, but asked with a smile: “Do we think we can get more than an eight-vote margin?”

SHANGHAI (NY Times) — There was one very disagreeable ingredient in the steaming hot pot of stew that may have killed a Chinese tycoon. And it wasn’t the cat meat. The police have detained a local township official on suspicion that he murdered the tycoon, a business associate who may have caught him cheating, by dropping a poisonous herb into a cat-meat hot pot, a shared stew that is a local delicacy, China’s state-run news media reported Wednesday. The police now suspect local official, Huang Guang, slipped Gelsemium elegans, a poisonous herb, into the stew while eating lunch with Long Liyuan, 49, who ran a forestry company, and another friend. To avoid suspicion, Huang apparently ate some of the stew himself. All three men were hospitalized, according to the police account, and Long died almost immediately.

PRIMARY from page one

When voters head to the polls Tuesday they'll find the ballot is not short on names. New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner released sample ballots for the primary for both the Republican and Democratic parties this week and they total 30 Republicans – a record high for the state’s Republican ballot — and 14 Democrats. The Republican ballot includes the seven leading GOP contenders as well as seven others challenging for attention. Some of the additional names may look familiar. For example, former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson, who is now seeking the Libertarian party’s nomination, former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer, and Fred Karger, a political consultant and gay rights' activist, are some of the individuals listed. Herman Cain, the one-time frontrunner for the GOP nomination who dropped his bid in early December amid allegations of sexual harassment, also appears on the ballot. He filed his candidacy with the New Hampshire Secretary of State before dropping out of the race. Despite the record high number of candidates, there is only one female candidate listed on the Republican ballot — Bachmann. Following a disappointing sixth place showing in the Iowa Caucuses Tuesday, Bachman announced Wednesday she will end her bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

"Last night, the people of Iowa spoke with a very clear voice, and so I have decided to stand aside," she said at a news conference in Des Moines, Iowa. "I have no regrets," she added. "None whatsoever. We never compromised our principles." She said she "looks forward to the next chapter in God's plan." Bachmann did not endorse another candidate. Perry was also disappointed with his Iowa showing and headed home to Texas to determine whether there is a "path forward" for his White House bid Tuesday night. Wednesday, he tweeted he was still in the race but will skip New Hampshire other than to attend the debate in Manchester this Saturday. "And the next leg of the marathon is the Palmetto State. Here we come South Carolina!" Perry wrote on his Twitter account. The Democratic ballot is considerably shorter than the Republican ballot, but Democratic voters in New Hampshire wishing to take part in Tuesday’s primary do have a list of 13 names aside from President Barack Obama. Qualifying for ballot access in New Hampshire is a relatively straightforward process. Candidates wishing to file for the first-in-the-nation primary are required to submit a declaration of candidacy to the Secretary of State’s office, along with a $1,000 filing fee. New Hampshire’s filing deadline was Oct. 28. Town clerks in New Hampshire are

anticipating a long, active day at the polls on Tuesday. "We've tested our ballot machines, we're locked, loaded and ready to go," Rhoda Quint, town clerk for Conway, said. "We're thinking we'll get a pretty good turnout given the interest there appears to be. Just (Tuesday) we've started to see an uptick in absentee ballots." Libby Priebe, town clerk for Freedom, agrees. "We've had more interest in absentee ballots than we've had in past years," she said. "Usually, the primary tends to pass by with little notice, but not this year." Anyone not yet registered to vote can cast a ballot on Tuesday. They must bring proof of residence to the supervisors of the checklist when they head to the polls and can sign up to vote. It is too late to switch parities for this election. The deadline to declare a party was in October. Therefore, if you are registered as either a Democrat or a Republican, that will be the ballot you receive Tuesday. If you are an Independent or undeclared, you will get a choice of which ballot you would like to vote on. After casting your ballot, you then must declare to the supervisors of the checklist that

you wish to return to Independent status. If you do not, you will remain committed to whichever party's ballot you selected until you change with the supervisors. Residents of Hart's Location will be the first to cast ballots as they continue their tradition of voting at the stroke of midnight Monday night. Hart’s Location initiated the firstvote tradition in 1948. At that time a few of the residents who worked for the railroad couldn’t get time off with pay to vote, so the whole town voted at 7 a.m. The vote for that presidential election? Dewey 11, Truman 1. The first midnight vote took place in 1952. Eisenhower got 5 votes, Stevenson 4. In 2011, there are 30 registered voters for the primary. Voting will take place in the small town hall constructed by residents eight years ago. Voters will gather for coffee, cookies and conversation at 11:30 p.m. Monday. Line up for the vote begins a few minutes before midnight and generally the vote is done within three to five minutes. The moderator and people handling the checklist take as much time as they need to tally the votes accurately. The first-in-thesee PRIMARY page 10

No money approved for rehabilitation To the editor: I’m back to Concord tomorrow ... I guess that means you’ll be hearing from me more often in the near future. In fact I’m working now on a letter in which I will demonstrate just how utterly upside down the funding priorities are at the county level and how it is possible, in my opinion, to save between two and three million dollars in the county budget immediately. However, my immediate concern deals with a bit of misinformation published in a front page story written by Mr. Daymond Steer titled: “Installation of wood pellet boilers costly at nursing home,” published in the Tuesday, Jan. 3 edition of The Conway Daily Sun. I know Daymond and I’m certain it’s was an innocent mistake. The story, as written, goes a long way in demonstrating the cause of my anxiety and in fact dismay when it comes to fiscal matters relative to county government. In the last paragraph Daymond wrote: “Lawmakers approved $1 million for rehabilitating the old nursing home building for other uses etc...” That is not a true statement. Not one red cent has been approved for the purpose described, or anything even remotely related. The lawmakers, as Daymond likes to refer to the county delegation, did, in fact, vote

to consider a proposal for the rehabilitation of the old nursing home, however, the total cost of the proposal must not exceed the $1 million figure quoted. That’s it, we agreed to consider a proposal ... nothing more. The county commissioners are still trying to wheedle approval of a $1million dollar appropriation to rehabilitate the old nursing home with the primary motivation being to move the UNH Cooperative Extension to the county complex. I have been informed that the owner of the Conway property presently being utilized by the cooperative extension has offered them a five-year lease with no increase in rent. It is ludicrous to even consider spending a million dollars of taxpayer money to move the cooperative to the county complex. For what? What is gained by doing so other than being closer to the county farm? To spend a million dollars, at this particular time, under these circumstances, just to get closer to a pig sty is nothing less than a slap in the face to the taxpayers of the county. The commissioners should, in my opinion, get off their high horse of empire building, put the idea to final rest and get on with the job they were voted in to do. Rep. Frank McCarthy, Carroll County District 1 Conway

Hale’s pays more than an adequate amount for services Mills has done an outstanding job as our treasurer To the editor: In the 12 years that I have lived in Hale’s Location, it has always amazed me that our neighbors in the valley have such little understanding of our unincorporated town and its governance and finances. Hale’s Location is not a township in Carroll County but rather an unincorporated town. As such we have no elected town selectman but have the three Carroll County commissioners acting as selectmen on our behalf. Hale’s Location pays tuition for each child we enroll in the Conway school system. The rates vary by elementary, middle school, and high school. Presently, we are paying in excess of $32,000 a year for each student we send to Kennett High School. That charge is the highest of all the sending “towns” and the same as what Jackson pays. From articles I have read in The Conway Daily Sun about school finances, that charge is more than the cost per pupil figures cited in budget negotiations. The commissioners negotiate contracts for ambulance service as well as fire and rescue on our behalf. The ambulance contract is with North Conway Ambulance and costs Hale’s taxpayers $37,000 per year. That contract only gives us the privilege of calling North Conway Ambulance and ensures that they will service our residents. The actual charges for the ambulance runs are charged to the insurance providers of the clients they service. Similarly, the commissioners have also negotiated a fire and rescue contract with the town of Conway. Hale’s taxpayers are paying nearly $57,000 per year to the North Conway Water Precinct for fire and rescue service. Law enforcement is provided by the Carroll County Sheriff Department since Hale’s Location is an unincorpo-

rated town in the county. Hale’s has no police department of our own. The fact that there is a mutual aid pact among the local police forces in effect is of course a comfort to residents at Hale’s as it is to Albany, Eaton and other neighboring towns. The fact that the Conway police had responded to one mutual aid call in Hale’s in the last five years should underscore the lack of enforcement requirement that our community places on local law enforcement. Indeed, I would not be surprised if that one call was the only one in the last 12 years. While it is true that dispatch calls for ambulance and fire and rescue place a burden on the 911 monitoring line, it would seem reasonable that any prorated costs of such calls be included in the fees we pay to the ambulance service and the fire and rescue departments. Perhaps the city fathers could discuss this fine point with the commissioners and have these costs explicitly provided for in the contracts. I would also point out that residents of Hale’s Location pay association dues over and above our county taxes to provide for our self-contained water system, our street maintenance and lighting, and our snow plowing requirements. The association contracts directly with Waste Management for our trash removal. None of these services burden Conway in any manner. In summary, Hale’s Location pays for all the services derived from Conway in an agreed upon manner under the supervision of the county commissioners. Instead of getting too good a deal from Conway as alleged in the lead paragraph of the article, Hale’s pays more than an adequate amount for the services we utilize. Richard McClure, president Hale’s Location Owners Association

Many would be valid recipients of Baghdad Bob award To the editor: Remember Muhammed Saeed alSahhaf? Of course you don’t. OK, how about his alias, Baghdad Bob, Saddam Hussein’s P.R. loudmouth who blurted out on Iraqi radio that the Americans were surrendering and burning in their tanks while our troops secured Baghdad and the Iraqi people toppled Saddam’s statues? Yes, that imbecile who thought that he could fool all of the people all of the time. Fast forward to the leadership we have now. After three years of the most mis-managed, crooked, hypocritical, lying bunch of political misfits who are either in jail, pending prosecution, pleading the fifth amendment, or are just plain, (fill in the blanks -----) we have another batch of Baghdad Bobs (Democrats) who are either still blaming Bush or trying to convince enough simpletons among their peers that things are going to get better as long as those evil Republicans don’t regain full control. Their battle cry: “Things would be even worse without us.” So many among the Parasite Party deniers would be valid recipients of a Baghdad Bob award if there was one. Carol Shea Porter for still insisting that the stimulus worked, DNC chairbabe

Debbie Wasserman Schultz for having the audacity of dope to go on Fox news bellowing that unemployment is better now than it was three years ago, Barney Frank for stupefying the public that “Fannie and Freddie” were sound investments shortly before they crumbled. Etc., etc., etc. Locally, if I could award the B.B. trophy to someone, my first choice would be to Ken Mc Kenzie, a regular critic of mine, for refusing to acknowledge the destruction, mayhem, filth, and blatant disregard for the rights of others who wanted no part of their juvenile tantrums. If Ken’s total refusal to condemn the misfits because he just happened to shower first and attend a peaceful OWSer rally in Conway with a handful of protesters, prompts him to believe that all is well among the unwashed masses of useful idiots, then he truly deserves the award. Make no mistake. I have no love for the 1 percent Wall Street fat cats. But I despise the small percentage of “you owe me” deadbeats and losers who steal more from the benefits for the truly needy than any billionaires, the ones who donate millions to worthy causes, could.

To the editor: It is time for the chairman of the board of selectmen in Tamworth to resign or be removed from office. His slanderous treatment of our elected treasurer is disgraceful. Chairman Farnum appears to want complete control over all offices in the town of Tamworth, even though he is only an elected official, as is our town treasurer, no more, no less. Mr. Farnums’ interview in a local paper contained slanderous innuendo that followed the lack of details in the selectmen’s meeting notes concerning a letter sent to Mrs. Mills, the treasurer. His comments and lack of accurate information leave residents questioning the integrity of our elected treasurer. He repeatedly stated that he ordered the police chief to deliver a letter to the treasurer, leaving people to wonder why. We wonder why the town is wasting our tax dollars this way. How much has been paid to the town’s attorney to write and send these unnecessary letters? The certified letters to the treasurer were signed for, just not on the selectmen’s unreasonable timetable. Was this not soon enough for Mr. Farnum? Staff in the selectmen’s office could have hand delivered these written communications by walking just a few paces down the hallway, and I am sure Mrs. Mills would have signed a note confirming she had received them. She is there every day. Subsequent requests and responses were demanded in a ridiculous timeframe, without any explanations. Why did the selectmen order Mrs. Mills to delegate some of her duties and responsibilities to others? RSA 41:29 clearly states that the treasurer is charged with “having custody of all moneys belonging to the town &hellip;” We elected her treasurer, not others. The selectmen demanded that all payments to the NHPDIP be stopped. Again, no explanation was given for this demand except that for some unexplained reason the selectmen do not trust this entity. This pool was adopted in New Hampshire about 20

years ago to protect town funds, and it is governed by the N.H. Bank Commissioner with a very distinguished board of directors. We have been a participant for a long time. Why do these three financially uneducated and uninformed selectmen think they know more about town investing than our treasurer and the top N.H. bankers and state officials? Is this in the best interests of the town? In March, our town auditor recommended the selectmen invite the Local Government Center to come to town and review policies and make recommendations. Doesn’t that sound like a good idea? The town treasurer is responsible for town funds. As she holds this responsibility, why should she comply with these demands? On what grounds do the selectmen feel it is their duty to micromanage other elected officials? They are not employees! They certainly have the right to oversee all offices and format policy changes, but not to displace our elected treasurer. She has every right to question the requests. You were elected selectman, Mr. Farnum, not king! We admire the treasurer for standing up for what are inappropriate actions by the selectmen. The selectmen have a right to oversee all transactions, but they MUST include the treasurer in any financial policy changes. That’s why the people elect a treasurer. Mrs. Mills has done an outstanding job as our treasurer, with sound investment policy decisions. It is a disgrace to see the harassment and false innuendo she has been subjected to by the select chair. Mr. Farnum seems to have an issue with anyone who isn’t part of his political persuasion and with anyone who doesn’t ask “how high” when ordered to jump. This ongoing pattern of untruth, innuendo and rudeness inflicted on residents who disagree with him must stop. He needs to issue an apology and consider stepping down as he appears unfit for the position he was elected to. Dannie and Betty Wasson Chocorua

DAVISON from page one

to comply with whatever the judge wants and rules," Carl Nelson, school superintendent, said Tuesday. "We'll comply with whatever the law states." The Sun's publisher, Mark Guerringue, was not surprised by the judge's request. "Any documents relating to the behavior of an elected school official on school property are about as public as documents can get," Guerringue said. "We'll be floored if the judge doesn't release them." The paper requested copies of the materials under the state's Right To Know law after learning about their existence from former school board members. Attorneys for the school and for Davison argued the complaints pertain to school sporting events, not to official board duties, and Davison should be treated as a private citizen and a father in this matter, not as an elected official. In his order, Judge Houran writes that when the privacy interests of an individual are potentially implicated by a Right To Know request, the court uses a three-part test, ultimately balancing the public interest in disclosure and the individual's right to privacy. "We engage in a three-step analysis when considering whether disclosure of public records constitutes an invasion of privacy under RSA 91-A-5,IV. First, we evaluate whether there is a privacy interest at stake that would be invaded by disclosure. If no privacy interest is at stake, the Right to Know law mandates disclosure. "Next, we assess the public's interest in disclosure. Disclosure of the requested information should inform the public about the conduct and activities of their government. Finally, we balance the public interest in disclosure against the government interest in nondisclosure and the individual's privacy interest in nondisclosure." Houran will conduct an "in camera" review of the 23 pages submitted to the school board about Davison "to determine whether there is a privacy interest at stake that would be invaded by

the disclosure, whether disclosure of the requested information would inform the public about the conduct and activities of their government, and ultimately whether, upon balancing the public interest in disclosure against the government interest in nondisclosure and the individual's privacy interest in nondisclosure, the documents must be disclosed. Further upon in-camera review that any of the documents must be disclosed, that review will enable the court to redact any portion which may be categorically excluded from disclosure. "For the foregoing reasons, the Conway School District shall produce under seal for the court's in-camera review a copy of any correspondence, whether paper or electronic, received by the district addressing allegedly inappropriate behavior by Randy Davison, together with any documents generated by the district discussing, addressing, or responding to that correspondence in any way. So ordered." In-camera refers to court cases or portions of court cases that the public and press cannot attend. In-camera is the opposite of trial in open court where all the parties and witnesses testify in a public courtroom, and attorneys make their arguments in public. In a 27-minute hearing on Dec. 22, both sides — The Conway Daily Sun and the Conway School District — made their arguments. Reporter Erik Eisele presented the Sun's argument that Davison, who has been a member of the Conway School Board since 2007, under the Right To Know law is a public official and therefore is not afforded the same protection as a private citizen. Attorney John Teague, of Upton and Hatfield in Concord, represented the Conway School District, and attorney James Cowles, of Walker and Varney in Wolfeboro, was hired by Davison to protect his interests. Cowles contended release of 23 pages of complaints against his client to the media would be counter to Davison's privacy interests, the same afforded to parents of other athletes within the Conway School District.

acknowledged last month the school district has received numerous complaints about Davison’s behavior since he was elected to the board. The complaints pertained to Davison’s behavior at school sporting events. The complaints were never publicly addressed, according to former board members, because Davison agreed to stop acting up. This fall, however, Davison was involved in an incident at a soccer game in Berlin in September that got him banned from the Berlin campus for a year. Davison maintains the altercation wasn’t his fault. The Sun learned of the Berlin incident and the past complaints, so the paper requested copies of the materials under the state's Right To Know law. The Right To Know law requires public access to meetings and records of government bodies to ensure transparency. Houran's instructions to the parties was short and concise. "Just tell me what you think I should do and why," he said. Houran asked Eisele if the documents the Sun is seeking are in the public domain. Eisele said he believes they are. "Our belief is that a public body has received a correspondence about a public official and the information we are looking for has to do with his behavior at events that were held by that public body so we believe that it ought to be available to the public," Eisele told the judge. Attorney Teague said he received the request from the Sun for review. "It clearly involved not just a school board member but an individual who is also a parent and a member of the community," he said. "The case immediately raises the issue of a number of cases, The Union Leader and the New Hampshire Civil Liberties case being the principal one about balancing interests of a private individual to a right to privacy and the public's right to know when it deals with public officials. It's kind of square on because it sought information regarding not the activities of a school board member while he was in a board meeting or doing something in his official capacity but merely attending athletic events as his son play on a sports team. He has this dual capacity. "It's pretty clear that in our state we have a volunteer government which is becoming increasingly difficult to get people to serve, and increasing number of vacancies and we're quite sensitive to not making it more difficult than it should be by law to serve in these capacities," Teague continued. "It has long been my

belief that you don't give up your right to privacy as a condition to serving as a volunteer. The president of the United States may have to to be president but not to serve on the school board or a zoning board." Teague said it was his advice to the school district to withhold the information not on a permanent basis or categorically, and also for Davison to get his own legal counsel to allow the individual school board member and parent "to assert his right to privacy." Teague said school districts receive all sorts of different pieces of paper. "We get complaints about parents in divorce settlements all the time hoping the school district will get rid of all the domestic fracas," he said. "Unless they deal with a student or a faculty member that requires an investigation, they are just that, they're pieces of paper, which in the words of case law are a warehouse. We find ourselves with them but they're not necessarily government documents simply because we have them in the walls of the superintendents office, and really that in large measure what these documents are. They're pieces of paper that we did not create, we did not search out, we did not ask for, we simply have them. I think their status as government records is quite questionable under the circumstances." Judge Houran asked if the school district acted upon the complaints against Davison. "I can't make that categorical statement," Teague said, "because there was a response to a number of them; there are notes written on them that indicate that someone looked at them and someone heard the complaint if there was a complaint, but was there a formal investigation, no. Was there a hearing, no. Was there any board action, no." Teague asked that if the court rules in favor of the Sun that the names of the students and the parents who wrote the letters be redacted. Cowles also asked that the names be redacted. "There's about 23 pages of documents that were produced in responses to the paper's request," he said. Cowles argued the Sun was seeking rather broad information about his client and that "it doesn't explain exactly what the public's interest is in this information and dissemination won't inform the public about what the government is up to. In this case, the paper is squarely asking for information about a school board member and his private life which has nothing to do with the purview of the school board itself." In his brief, Cowles argues that Davison is a private citizen and is entitled to protection as such. "To the extent that the (Sun's) request looks to gain

access to information about Davison's private life, and not his conduct on the Conway School Board, the request clearly implicates Davison's privacy rights and will likely not inform the 'public about what it's government is up to,'" he wrote. "The disclosure of the requested documents will not inform the public about the 'conduct and activities of their government,' but will instead disseminate personal information about Davison as a parent. The disclosure of such information could dissuade Davison, and other civic minded persons who are generous with their time, from serving in similar positions in the future." Eisele argued that elected public officials are not protected as personnel of the district. He also agreed to redact the student names, but felt the adults should remain. "It is our understanding that some of these are from other board members. That would be pertinent information if other school board members were coming to the school board about Mr. Davison's behavior, from our point of view," he said. "As per the defense's assertion this is a private citizen in his private time time," Eisele continued, "he was on school grounds and at school events. Mr. Davison has actually told the Sun that it is important that school board members go to these sporting events to represent the school. We would argue that he is not at games as a private citizen." Eisele also addressed the public's need to know and public good from the release of the documents. "Mr. Davison is a public official and it's important for the public to know the character and type of person they are voting for," he said. "Every time that an election happens it's important for people to make informed decisions. There are 23 pages of files that talk about his inappropriate behavior in connection with events that he is a public official overseeing that goes to character, and voters need to know that." Teague again argued that Davison should be afforded rights as a private citizen. "(Davison) is a school board member because he took the time and has the interest in being on the school board and we appreciate that," Teague said, "but he doesn't lose his function as a parent as a condition of being a school board member and there is suggestion here that this the case and I would suggest otherwise." The current school board itself has not weighed in on the issue. Several board members said they didn’t learn about the Sun’s request until several days after administration officials had decided to deny it.

Occupyers to occupy Conway polls on primary day BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Occupy Conway is hatching plans for Tuesday's New Hampshire Republican Primary. Members will also participate in primary-related events in Manchester during the weekend. A group of about eight people met at the Conway Cafe last Thursday night for a strategy session. Most of the Occupiers decided to convene outside Conway's polls for a few hours in the morning and evening on primary day. But some Occupiers from other towns may show up at their local polls. Occupy Conway, also known as Occupy Mount Washington Valley, will meet again at the Conway Cafe on Jan. 5 at 6 p.m. Occupy Wall Street is a leaderless movement that began on Sept. 17 in New York City's financial district, inspiring related actions that have spread across the U.S. and over 1,500 cities around the

world. Common concerns include the economy and the corroding effect of big banks and multinational corporations on democracy, according to Occupy Conway protester Andy Davis of Albany. Attendees at last Thursday's meeting had different ideas about their message for voters. Some wanted to distribute information about tax-evading corporations and about the number of ultra-rich people in Congress. By the end of the meeting, several said they would research each presidential candidates' top five campaign donors. "We are individuals with differing opinions," said Monique Kramer of Stow, Maine. "The only thing we agree on is the system is broken." Occupy will not be endorsing any candidate. On Occupy New Hampshire's Facebook page, several people asked why the movement isn't embracing Republican presidential candidate Buddy Roemer. The comments said the former Louisiana congress-

man and governor espouses many of the same beliefs as Occupy Wall Street. Occupier Dick Pollock, of Conway, replies the protest is about "the system" and not the candidates. However, Pollock blasted the Romney campaign in a letter to The Conway Sun for allegedly infringing on Occupy's right to assemble near the entrance of Kennett Middle School where Romney held a recent town hall meeting. Pollock says the Romney campaign didn't have the right to keep protesters away from the school's entrance because it had only rented the school cafeteria. Conway Police Lt. Chris Perley said the Romney campaign complained the Occupiers were being intimidating and asked police to get them to move away from the archway in front of the school's side entrance. "When there are strongly held oppositional views in close quarters, sparks can fly," said Perley. Occupiers complained they wouldn't be seen in the front of the building and that Romney's contract with the school only covered the cafeteria but not the campus. But Perley said by inference the Romney campaign had the right of peaceful enjoyment of the curtilage. For instance, he said, a person who rents a building can expect that someone else doesn't have the right to sit in a chair on the sidewalk in front of the door. No one was arrested because the Occupiers moved. "Free speech rights are mutual," said Perley. "You're supposed to be able to enjoy yours without infringing on others." Romney campaign spokesman Ryan Williams said some Occupy protesters put down their signs and attended the town hall meeting without causing any disruption. People of all political persuasions are welcome to attend Romney campaign events as long as they are respectful, said Williams. "They were respectful and were allowed to stay," said Williams. According to the lease agreement provided by SAU 9, the Romney campaign was charged $190 for use of the cafeteria and six hours of custodian time. The day after the event, the school revised the bill and charged Romney $250, which includes $40 for the indoor court yard and $20 for a classroom. The bill was increased because the town hall meeting took up more space than anticipated. During the weekend prior to the primary, Occupy members plan to attend events in Manchester. Occupy events begin Friday at 6 p.m. in Manchester's Veteran's Park. Occupy Conway member Doug Bowen, of Porter Maine, said the biggest event would likely be a "funeral procession for the American dream," which will be held at St. Anselm College on Saturday at 7 p.m. PRIMARY from page 3

Merger creates Visiting Nurse, Home Care and Hospice of Carroll County CONWAY – For nonprofit organizations that provide community health and home care services, the health care environment is always changing. “Sometimes it makes sense to join together so that essential services can be better coordinated,” said Sandra Ruka, RN MSN, executive director of the newly created Visiting Nurse, Home Care & Hospice of Carroll County.

New Year’s Resolutions A new year carries with it an symbolic starting point, an arbitrary line in the temporal sand upon which many people line up to start fresh with a series of self improvement resolutions. While single resolutions are helpful, why limit your self improvement to a single goal? Here are a few health-orientated goals that may or may not apply to all of you, but are a bucket list of changes that could improve your wellness this coming year: 1. Kick bad habits. What are yours? Smoking? Drinking too much? Find those avenues in your life that are littered pathways to your health and clean them up. Ask your PCP for help if you need it (for example quitting cigarettes). 2. Clean up your diet. The typical American eats 1,000-2,000 calories per day above and beyond what they need. Obesity is an epidemic in this country and there is no time like the present to do everything you can to eat less, and more healthy, foods. Perhaps this means a trip to the dietician, or some extensive research. However you get there, do go there. A better diet can prevent conditions like diabetes and heart disease. 3. Exercise. Walking is great. It’s easy and you can talk with your family as you do it together. But it’s rarely enough. Get that heart pumping to the point where you’re a bit winded, as the aerobic component of exercise is what really stokes your furnace, burns calories, aids in maintaining a normal blood pressure and offers a myriad of other benefits. Be sure to talk with your PCP prior to initiating an exercise regimen, however, especially if you have any medical problems.

4. Clean out your medicine cabinet. If you are a patient who is on a number of prescription drugs, be sure you’ve discarded the old meds you no longer take. It’s far too easy to accumulate a stockpile of old meds “just in case you need them.” This is a dangerous practice that leads to overdoses all too often in this country. 5. Plan ahead. It’s never too late to think about the future. Getting a living will together or simply having a frank discussion with your loved ones about your wishes in the event of a medical emergency is not pessimistic, it’s proactive. Accidents and disease can strike the young and the old, the infirm and the healthy. Make your wishes known as to how you’d like your family to handle your medical issues, should you be unable to make those decisions for yourself. 6. See your doctor. This will provide you an opportunity to make sure you’re up to date on your health maintenance. Is your mammogram up to date? Colonoscopy? Vaccines? Have you had routine cholesterol and blood sugar checks? Not all tests are required for all patients, but that’s why you should see your PCP&hellip; to ask what you need. By being proactive in this New Year you can seize the ever present opportunity to improve your overall wellness. It’s never too late to live a healthier, happier life. Start today, if you haven’t already. Dr. Brian Irwin is a family physician at Tamworth Family Medicine, a division of Huggins Hospital.

Before Baby There’s no crystal ball to tell a woman how her body will react to being pregnant. For some women, being pregnant is a wondrous, ethereal, even mystical experience. These women positively glow. They breeze through nine months with few if any problems, a positive attitude and people say things like, “Wow, from the back you don’t even look pregnant!” For other women, being pregnant means constant aches and pains, medical problems and/or a feeling that somehow they’ve morphed into a large water mammal with legs. How a woman experiences pregnancy is influenced by a variety of factors, but behavior and lifestyle choices that came long before pregnancy have a substantial impact on both how a woman will respond to pregnancy and how healthy her baby and new family will be. If a woman is anticipating having a baby at any point during her childbearing years, she needs to remember that the things she does now matter. 1. If you smoke quit now. Quitting can be difficult. Quitting while you’re under the stress of a major life change can be doubly difficult. Remember, if you smoke while you’re pregnant, the baby is smoking too. The March of Dimes reminds women, “When you smoke during pregnancy, your baby is exposed to dangerous chemicals like nicotine, carbon monoxide and tar. These chemicals can lessen the amount of oxygen that your baby gets. Oxygen is very important for helping your baby grow healthy. Smoking can also damage your baby's lungs.” 2. Maintain a healthy body weight. Women who maintain a healthy weight are less likely to experience high blood pressure or gestational diabetes during pregnancy. Babies born to mothers who are at a healthy weight are less likely to be premature or suffer from birth defects. There’s also a proven link between childhood obesity and a mother being overweight during pregnancy. 3. Folic acid helps prevent birth defects. Making foods rich in folic acid as a part of the mother’s daily diet

Suze Hargraves

is critical to having healthy babies. According the March of Dimes (www., “Folic acid is a B vitamin that can help prevent birth defects, particularly NTDs (birth defects of the brain and spinal cord called neural tube defects). Studies show that if all women consumed the recommended amount of folic acid before and during early pregnancy, up to 70 percent of all NTDs could be prevented. Studies also suggest that folic acid may help prevent some other birth defects, including cleft lip and palate and some birth defects involving the heart. A recent study also suggests that women who take folic acid for at least 1 year before becoming pregnant may reduce their risk of having a premature baby.” The recommended daily intake of folic acid is 400 micrograms. 4. Critical to maintaining a healthy “baby ready” body is avoidance of alcohol and illicit drugs. The effects of alcohol or drug abuse have long term effects on a woman’s body that can cause serious or even life-threatening complications for a pregnancy. 5. Sarah Wright, Prenatal Social Worker at White Mountain Community Health Center says, “The support and relationships a woman has in place prior to and during pregnancy, as well as after birth, play critical roles in healthy pregnancies and healthier babies. Strong, healthy relationships and well defined support circles create a firm foundation for strong, healthy families.” Having a baby isn’t always planned, but any woman who is considering becoming a mother at some point can take proactive steps today to create a body, mind and environment that is ready for the day a tiny person opens their eyes for the first time and sees Mommy. Suze Hargraves is a staff member of White Mountain Community Health Center. Visit for more information or find the health center on Facebook.

Wildcat Valley trail one of five best in New England Yankee Magazine named Jackson Ski Touring Foundation’s Wildcat Valley Trail as one of the five best cross country trails in New England. Anyone who has skied it will agree that it deserves this distinction. To ski the Wildcat Valley Trail, skiers take the chairlift to the top of Wildcat Mountain, then ski down an ungroomed trail filled with sharp turns and sudden drop offs. “The Wildcat Valley Trail is the most difficult trail in the Jackson Ski Touring network,” says Thom Perkins, Executive Director of Jackson Ski Touring Foundation. “This is a very special trail, with tremendous mountains vistas. However, it should only be undertaken by highlyexperienced skiers who are in top physical condition.” Historical Society Program Jan. 12 Ashley Williams will be presenting a program entitled, “Jackson, Then and Now” on Thursday, Jan. 12, at the Whitney Center at 7:30 p.m. She will be using many of the photos taken by her grandfather, Harold Copeland Williams, who was a photographer in Jackson during the mid-1940s to the early 1960s.

Abra L. (Broughton) Brown

Abra L. (Broughton) Brown, 78, passed away peacefully on Friday, Dec. 30, 2011 after a short but courageous battle with brain cancer. Abra was a native of Conway, graduate of Kennett High School class of 1951 and the daughter of the late John C. Broughton and Helen (Betty) G. Broughton, of Conway. She was predeceased by her husband of 41 years, Arthur (Brownie) M. Brown; companion, Captain Red Lowry, of Carolina Beach, N.C.; and her sister, Barbara Howland, of Conway. Abra grew up on Wilder Street in Conway, where she raised her five children as well. She is survived by those five children, Edwin Brown and his partner, Jean Haskell, of Fryeburg, Maine, Debra Brown and her partner, Stephen Downing of Conway, Cynthia Lawrence and her husband, Mike, of Fryeburg, Melanie Brown and her partner, Erik Heath, of Tamworth, and Rosemary Evans, of Conway; her "adopted" sons, Robert L. Hatch, of Conway, and Barry Wade, of Wells, Maine; her grandchildren and great grandchildren, Jeremy Boutilier, his sons, Dustin Boutilier, Colby Boutilier, Robert L. Hatch Jr. and his wife Kim Hatch, their son, Austin Hatch, Melissa Hatch and her partner, Nick Severy, their son, Riley Severy. Sarah Brown, Shannon Brown and her son, Teagan Brown, Nathaniel Wilkins, and Kyle and Jamie Evans; brotherin-law, Roy Howland, of Conway and his children, Peter Howland, of Conway, Sally Brown, of Cumberland, Maine, and Linda Fernald, of Nottingham. Abra's family had a long legacy where her great grandfather, Charles A. Broughton, and grandfather, Frank C. Broughton, built the Jackson Covered Bridge known as the Honeymoon Bridge in Jackson as well as the Saco River Bridge in Conway. Her father, John, was well known for being the railway express agent in the Mount Washington Valley in the 1940s and 1950s. John was also an active member in town

and state politics as well as the assistant fire chief in Conway. He also worked at the Mount Washington Auto Road. Abra was known for her great nature of listening and for being the most non-judgmental person that anyone has ever known. She was very giving of her spirit and her time. She worked retail in the Valley for many years and was well known by many for being seen in Ben Franklin, Brooks, and Ames. She worked hard her entire life and had many people that enriched that life and many people who say she enriches theirs. Abra traveled to Florida with her parents and this is where she met and married Arthur. They lived in Florida, North Carolina and also Indiana. Abra requested that there be no visitation services or funeral services and the family is abiding by those wishes. There will be a celebration of life in the spring at her home on Tasker Hill Road. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Conway Historical Society or charity of your choice.

Bartlett Community Church hosting Italian dinner fundraiser

My girls gave me a gumball machine for Christmas. I have wanted a gumball machine for as long as I can remember. The tears were definitely flowing when I opened their gifts on Christmas morning. What a wonderful feeling to have your children help in making one of your dreams come true. Every time we see a gumball machine at a store, I have to get one, now I can have one anytime I want. My oldest child also made a video of her and her sister growing up. The tears were flowing again when we watched the DVD. I have always been able to cry on a dime, but now all my dimes are being used in the gumball machine. I can truly say this was one of the best Christmases ever. I hope everyone has a great week. The Bartlett Community Church is hoping to have you enjoy an evening out at Joseph’s Spaghetti Shed for a delicious Italian feast from 4:30 to 9 p.m. on Jan 9. All funds raised will be applied toward work to be done this year on the lot purchased recently with the help of several generous contributors. The building on the location was previously known as the What Not and eventually became the Bear Notch Deli. The church is hoping to develop it into a functional, attractive park with parking spaces for easy access to the church and community functions, such as Concerts in the Park during the summer. During the Christmas vacation week, 29 children and seven adults enjoyed a fantastic day of skiing at Black mountain. This trip would not have been possible without the generosity of Black

Dave Dore Winter Classic draws 15 women’s teams to Ham Arena –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


CONWAY — The Ham Arena is to host the annual Dave Dore Winter Classic this weekend, with one local team and 14 visiting women’s hockey teams competing in the tourney. The 30-game tourney honors the memory of Dore, the late former assistant Ham Arena director who died from cancer in 2005 at the age of 55. The tournament raises funds for the Mount Washington Valley Women’s Hockey Association. “The tourney was previously the Wild Women Classic. We renamed it in Dave’s honor just before he died,” said Mount Washington Valley Women’s Hockey Association president Joann Daly. Dore’s wife, Pat, daughter Alicia Zink and granddaughters Sarah and Amelia are expected to be on hand to drop the ceremonial puck drop Sunday, according to Daly and fellow tourney organizer Lisa Gibson. “This is the biggest we’ve ever had with the most number of teams. Dave did so much to get women’s hockey under way at the Ham,” said Gibson. “He was awesome working with us.” The tourney will feature three divisions — the River Division (recreational) has five teams, the Valley (middle ability level) has six teams and the top President’s division has four teams. Play starts Friday, Jan. 6, at 3 p.m., and continues until midnight Friday. It resumes Saturday at 6 a.m., and continues to midnight, and then continues Sunday from 6 a.m. until 4 p.m., according to Ham director and longtime Dore friend Darrell Umlah. Umlah said that Dore was a former Boston University defenseman who played in the Frozen Four. He

later coached women’s hockey at Rutgers University. Dore and Umlah both worked at Attitash Ski School, where Umlah was director. They both envisioned a day when the valley could become home to an indoor ice facility. They worked together on that dream, traveling New England to get input on arena operations. They also enlisted the support of local backers to bring that dream to fruition in 1998. “Things didn’t happen right away,” Dore once related, “but fortunately we got together with some good people — Thad Thorne, Chet Lucy, Dixie Coleman and Bayard Kennett among others — in the fall of 1996 and we were on our way we got there opening in December of 1998. This whole project from the beginning to completion was something I’m proud to be a part of. It gave me an opportunity to relive certain aspects of my life and it was an opportunity to give back in a way so many people had done things for me when I was growing up.” ‘Founder’s Award’ Dore loved being involved in hockey for over a decade and said he thoroughly enjoyed his experiences at Ham Arena prior to heading south in 2003. In June of 2004, Dore was back in town to accept an award, as he was named the first recipient of the Ham Arena Founders Award. A plaque in the arena is dedicated to Dore. It reads: “Dave Dore, from the beginning a friend and believer.” “From the beginning, David made sure that women’s hockey got off on the right foot,” said Umlah. Dore’s Boston University No. 9 jersey hangs from the rafters at the Ham, alongside others once worn

by the late Roland Chabot, known as “Mr. Hockey” in his years as a fixture in the pro shop at Berlin’s Notre Dame Ice Arena; the late Alex Mitchell, an avid Ham youth ice hockey player, and Lumpa Brett, a former hockey star at the Ham and longtime local youth sports supporter. Wild Women represent valley The Ham is now home to four women’s hockey teams who skate in a league there Monday nights in addition to a pickup game that night. In addition, many women play on Thursday nights in the co-ed league at the Ham. Players skating for the local team, the Wild Women, in the Valley division include: Kerry Carbone, Kim Proulx, Meghan Skidmore, Amy Mahoney, goalie Nome Buckman, Michelle Jarvie, Haley Murnik, Lara Murnik, Anne Getchell, Kerri D. Ceklarz, Julie Vallieres, Joann Daly, Rachel Trudel, and Jacki Lapointe. They are to skate Friday at 5 and 10:50 p.m., Saturday at 8:50 p.m. and Sunday at 4:10 p.m. Other teams skating include the Left Wings of Wolfeboro; the Maine Breakaways of Portland Maine; the Coon Cats of Portland, Maine; the Saratoga Storm of Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; the Green Mountain Thunder of Burlington, Vt.; the SheWolves of Wolfeboro; Newt’s (Nomads) of Portsmouth; the Subzeros of Stoughton, Mass.; the Mentomy Rockets of Arlington, Mass.; the Ice Cats of Laconia/Plymouth; the Storm Chasers of Arlington, Mass.; the Riptides of Dover; the Bay St. Blues of Auburndale, Mass.; and the Breakers of Boston. see HOCKEY page 23

By Holiday Mathis accept whatever happens. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll knuckle down to finish a project that really should have been finished last year. Better late than never on this one. It will feel amazing to go forward into your new year unfettered. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whatever you are going through personally, you realize that others are in the same boat. And still others are in a sinking ship, looking at your boat and thinking it looks like a rescue. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You and the fates are working together today. People will tell you to do this or that, and it’s all decent advice. But the whisper of fate that comes from inside you will be the best one to follow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There will be a hurry and wait situation. One way to feel better about it is to skip the “hurry up” part. Give yourself plenty of preparation and travel time, and bring something to read. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People will pick up on your signals, so it’s best to know what they are. Check yourself, giving attention to what you normally might not. On a deeper level of consciousness, what do you really want? TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 5). Your fortunes will multiply as a direct result of your friendships and working relationships. You’ll pull a plan together this month. February brings new partnerships and the opportunity to align with a winning team. Your professional and personal lives will blur together. Family issues will be resolved in May. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 24, 15 and 47.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a time to get serious and share a deep connection, and then there’s a time to go for the laughter. You’ll do the latter, and a certain someone will find you irresistible because of this. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Worry has its place as long as it doesn’t last long. If the stress puts you in action, it was worthwhile. Just be sure to use negative tension as a signal to move forward. Don’t park in it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It may take you a while to get going this morning, but as the day progresses, so do the lightness and joy in your attitude. People will think you have a happy secret that you’re not sharing. And maybe you do. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You want something, but you’ve proved you can live without it. This is the perfect energetic combination for getting exactly what you want. You’ll be loose and playful enough to land your desire. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your intention of becoming closer to a person will be 80 percent of what is necessary to make that happen. The other 20 percent will be communicating that intention. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You dream of someday doing what makes your heart sing and having great success with it. This isn’t the kind of dream that should wait for “someday,” though. There is time today to engage in your happy action. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You recognize that while there is much you can influence, no one on Earth is powerful enough to control it all. You’re willing to give up the reins in a situation and

Today is Thursday, Jan. 5, the fifth day of 2012. There are 361 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 5, 1972, President Richard Nixon announced that he had ordered development of “an entirely new type of space transportation system,” the reusable space shuttle. (The first operational shuttle, Columbia, was launched in 1981.) On this date: In 1589, Catherine de Medici (MEHD’-uh-chee) of France died at age 69. In 1781, a British naval expedition led by Benedict Arnold burned Richmond, Va. In 1809, the Treaty of the Dardanelles, which ended the Anglo-Turkish War, was concluded by the United Kingdom and the Ottoman Empire. In 1895, French Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, convicted of treason, was publicly stripped of his rank. (He was ultimately vindicated.) In 1896, an Austrian newspaper, Wiener Presse, reported the discovery by German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen (RENT’-gun) of a type of radiation that came to be known as X-rays. In 1925, Nellie T. Ross of Wyoming became America’s first female governor. In 1933, the 30th president of the United States, Calvin Coolidge, died in Northampton, Mass., at age 60. In 1949, in his State of the Union address, President Harry S. Truman labeled his administration the Fair Deal. In 1957, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proposed assistance to countries to help them resist Communist aggression; this became known as the Eisenhower Doctrine. In 1970, Joseph A. Yablonski, an unsuccessful candidate for the presidency of the United Mine Workers of America, was found murdered with his wife and daughter at their Clarksville, Pa., home. (UMWA President Tony Boyle and seven others were convicted of, or pleaded guilty to, the killings.) “All My Children” premiered on ABC-TV. In 1994, Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill, former speaker of the House of Representatives, died in Boston at age 81. In 1998, Sonny Bono, the 1960s pop starturned-politician, was killed when he struck a tree while skiing at the Heavenly Ski Resort on the Nevada-California state line; he was 62. One year ago: John Boehner was elected speaker as Republicans regained control of the House of Representatives on the first day of the new Congress. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced he was stepping down. Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Today’s Birthdays: Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale is 84. Actor Robert Duvall is 81. Talk show host Charlie Rose is 70. Actressdirector Diane Keaton is 66. Actor Ted Lange is 64. Rhythm-and-blues musician George “Funky” Brown (Kool & the Gang) is 63. Rock musician Chris Stein is 62. Actress Pamela Sue Martin is 59. Actor Clancy Brown is 53. Singer Iris Dement is 51. Actor Ricky Paull Goldin is 47. Actor Vinnie Jones is 47. Rock musician Kate Schellenbach is 46. Dancer-choreographer Carrie Ann Inaba is 44. Actress Heather Paige Kent is 43. Rock singer Marilyn Manson is 43. Actor Bradley Cooper is 37. Actress January Jones is 34.

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I was sure “Emotionally Abused in California’s” letter (Nov. 2) was inspirational, but fictional. The 15-year-old writer felt her mother was unreasonable because of the rules Mom enforced and the chores the teen was required to do. Then I started re-reading my high school diary. There were many parallels between this girl’s complaints and my own as a teen. My mom also didn’t let me go to parties if she didn’t know the parents and confirm they’d be home; my curfew was 11:30 p.m. on weekends because Mom couldn’t sleep until I was in for the night. She always offered to host Friday pizza-andmovie night at our home to ensure my friends and I had a safe place to hang out. Like “Emotionally Abused,” I also resented my lack of freedom, but because of her efforts, I never had run-ins with the law, never got an STD or became pregnant, and I didn’t try drugs or alcohol. When I expressed my frustration, Mom would say, “When you’re a parent, you’ll understand.” Now that I have two small children, I DO understand. I hit the Mom jackpot! I’m grateful for her guidance, love and the boundaries she set for me. I’ll be sending her that column and a copy of this letter to you as a thank-you for making decisions that kept me grounded and safe. -- WON THE JACKPOT IN MICHIGAN DEAR WON THE JACKPOT: When that letter hit print, I was overwhelmed with mail from readers supporting my response and sharing experiences that validated “Emotionally Abused’s” mom’s parenting techniques. I took special note of the responses from teens, which I’ll share tomorrow. Today, some comments from adults: DEAR ABBY: It’s refreshing to know there are still parents who actually care about how they raise their children. Bring-

ing a child into this world is a tremendous responsibility. It requires years of 24/7 vigilance, teaching and love to produce a moral, loving and productive pillar of our society. Some parents today do not take their responsibility seriously. How we raise our children will directly affect how we function as a society in the future. -- CONCERNED DAD IN LAS VEGAS DEAR ABBY: I am a teacher of many spoiled, lazy, irresponsible and incompetent students. If all parents were as dedicated in rearing their children as this teen’s mother, my job would be wonderful. She has the necessary parenting skills to mold her child into a responsible, productive and mature adult. She’s an awesome woman! -- TEACHER IN NASHVILLE, GA. DEAR ABBY: It’s about time parents raise their children appropriately. I grew up with much less than “Emotionally Abused,” but with more rules and restrictions. My mom divorced my physically abusive father when I was 3. There was no alimony or child support. Mom did it all on her own. She even went back to school to get a college degree. Parents are not meant to be their children’s BFF. They are responsible for raising their children with morals and social values. Welcome to the REAL world. -- JACKSON, WIS., READER DEAR ABBY: My l5-year-old daughter often gives me a hard time for being a diligent mom. I laughed out loud at your response and let her read it. She said, “Wow, that’s totally US with the exception of Catholic school.” She has started being nicer to me. Thanks, Abby, for validating my efforts to be a good mom. -- DOING MY BEST IN COLORADO DEAR READERS: To read a longer version of this column, go to
