Study links good teachers to lasting gain

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Elementary- and middle-school teachers who help raise their students’ standardized-test scores seem to have a wide-ranging, lasting positive effect on those students’ lives beyond academics, including lower teenage-pregnancy rates and greater college matriculation and adult earnings, according to a new study that tracked 2.5 million students over 20 years. The paper, by Raj Chetty and John N. Friedman of Harvard and Jonah E. Rockoff of Columbia, all economists, examines a larger number of students over a longer period of time with more in-depth data than many earlier studies, allowing for a deeper look at how much the quality of individual teachers matters over the long term. “That test scores help you get more education, and that more education has an earnings effect — that makes sense to a lot of people,” said Robert H. Meyer, director of the Value-Added Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which studies teacher measurement but was not involved in this study. “This study skips the stages, and shows differences in teachers mean differences in earnings.” Many school districts have begun to use value-added metrics to influence decisions on hiring, pay and even firing.

Iran plans new round of military exercises ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

(NY Times) — Iranian officials have struck a defiant posture in response to a proposed oil embargo by the European Union, calling the intensified efforts to halt Iran’s nuclear program, including new sanctions by United States, tantamount to “an economic war,” and vowing to conduct a new round of military drills near the Strait of Hormuz. The strong words came after a series of escalating military and diplomatic responses by Iran in recent weeks amid growing pres-

sure from Western powers. On Tuesday, Iran warned the United States that it would take action if an American aircraft carrier that left the Persian Gulf through the Strait of Hormuz were to return. The United States has said that the threats would not cause it to alter military deployments. The Iranian military, fresh off 10 days of naval exercises near the strait that ended this week, vowed to hold a new round of war games soon. The defense minister, Brig. Ahmad Vahidi, in comments reported by the

semiofficial Fars news agency late Thursday, said the military’s exercises would be “its greatest naval war games” and would occur “in the same region in the near future.” Britain, adding its voice to the chorus of diplomatic responses, cautioned that any attempt by Iran to close the strait would be “illegal and unsuccessful.” “It is in all our interests that the arteries of global trade are kept free, opening and running,” Defense Secretary Philip Hammond, said, according to news reports.

Romney jabs at Obama, Dems see signs of hope as his rivals swing at him in battle for Congress

Love is a better teacher than duty.” —Albert Einstein

CONWAY, S.C. (NY Times) — Mitt Romney on Friday slammed President Obama for failing the American people and accused him of dragging “the soul of America” toward a “European-style welfare state.” Speaking to a crowd of several hundred people at a peanut warehouse here, Romney did not mention new data showing that the country added 200,000 jobs in December, sending the unemployment rate to its lowest level

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — While most of the political world’s attention has been focused on the presidential primaries, Democrats who took a beating in the midterm elections say they have slowly but steadily gotten back in the game when it comes to the battle for control of Congress. A year of fiscal fights that left the country careening from threatened government shutdown to federal default back to shutdown has hurt every member of Congress, but polls show it has hurt Republicans a bit more. Just before Christmas, House Republicans were forced to make humiliating concessions to Democrats over the extension of a payroll tax holiday and unemployment benefits, dinging the party’s tax-cutting brand. And improving economic signs captured in jobs gains reported on Friday also have Democrats feeling more optimistic.

in three years. The better-thanexpected jobs data was released just moments before Romney took the stage in South Carolina. “We’re taking it back!” Romney said of the White House before returning to New Hampshire for the final weekend before the voting in there. Flanked by Gov. Nikki R. Haley of South Carolina and Senator John McCain of Arizona, who won this state in 2008, Romney continued his criticism of Obama’s leadership.

Skier, two climbers caught in avalanches; no serious injuries BY ERIC EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

PINKHAM NOTCH — The lack of snow in the valleys may make it hard to believe, but there were two avalanche accidents on Mount Washington this week. One on Wednesday caught a skier, and the other late Thursday involved a pair of climbers. Both incidents happened in Huntington Ravine. There were no serious injuries. According to information posted online by U.S. Forest Service snow rangers, the first avalanche carried a skier almost 500 feet. The skier’s partner witnessed the event but was not caught. The second avalanche caught a pair of climbers in Central Gully, a popular ice climb in the ravine. One climber injured an ankle and had to be rescued.

There are avalanches every year on Mount Washington. The snow rangers provide expert risk assessment advisories most days throughout the winter for Tuckerman and Huntington ravines, but skiers and climbers are free to make their own decisions whether they heed the warnings. Because of the lack of snow, a general advisory had been posted since Monday, but new advisories went up on Thursday and Friday. The accidents, combined with the weather forecast, had officials reminding outdoor enthusiasts to be careful over the next few days. “There is little doubt that we will have unstable snow issues today and into the weekend,” U.S. Forest Service snow ranger Chris Joosen said in Friday’s advisory.

decision to travel to South Carolina before New Hampshire votes. “I think he’s probably taking New Hampshire for granted, and I think maybe it’s a clever thing on his part and maybe it’s not,” Gingrich said. Gingrich touted himself as a “Reagan conservative” and took aim at Romney when speaking with reporters. “He is a Massachusetts moderate,” Gingrich said. “The last two to be nominated, (Michael) Dukakis and (John) Kerry, didn’t have a very good general election. I think Romney would have a very hard time defending himself in a debate with (President Barack) Obama.” — courtesy WMUR

Gingrich says upsetting Romney in primary will be tough to do LEBANON -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said yesterday that he plans to stay positive in his campaign for the Republican nomination for president. Gingrich admitted that he has a tough road ahead if he plans to upset frontrunner Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary. “This is one of his three best states, with Utah and Massachusetts, so you have to assume if he couldn’t win here, he couldn’t win anywhere,” Gingrich said. “We knew coming in this would be an uphill fight. It’s important to be here, important to appeal to the people of New Hampshire.” Gingrich also discussed Romney’s

A year of ups and downs for GOP contenders BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

“A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.” — Winston Churchill. 2011 was a year of peaks and valleys on the political scene. It seemed like the front-runner spot in the Republican presidential primary was more of a revolving door with a new leader rising up the charts only to tumble after a political gaffe. While former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has held the top spot consistently in New Hampshire polls, he shared the favorite spot with several other candidates over the past seven months. Just look back at the various debates where Romney has been joined front and center by Texas Governor Rick Perry, businessman Herman Cain, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. One by one, aside from Romney, the others have fallen by the wayside. During the last week in May, a CNN poll had Rudy Giuliani one point ahead of Romney and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin only a few points behind him. Both Palin and Giuliani resisted the lure of a run for the White House — this time. Gingrich was the first 2012 Republican presidential candidate to visit Mount Washington Valley, coming to town May 26. At the time it looked like Conway might be one of the few stops for the former Speaker of the House as his campaign appeared to be on life support before ever really getting going after coming under scrutiny for a debt he and his wife owed to Tiffany & Co. in 2005 and 2006. This led to Gingrich taking a backseat among his parties hopefuls, but just like weather in New Hampshire, politics can change quickly. In May and well behind, Gingrich believed he still had a shot at winning the New Hampshire Primary. “I think you come up here with a program of very bold change in Washington,” he said. “You talk about creating jobs, you talk about getting back to a balanced budget. You talk about the 10th amendment and returning power back to the states. You talk about repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a much more local, much more decentralized process between doctor, patient and pharmacist. Those are things that resonate with a lot of people here. “If I win it will be on policy and on offering a vision of a dramatically better American future,” he said, “with more jobs, less expensive gasoline, less expensive heat-

Mitt Romney has been the frontrunner in New Hampshire since announcing his candidacy last spring.

ing oil, a balanced budget and a government that is much more decentralized and out of Washington.” On May 26, America’s mayor — Giuliani — came to Mount Washington Valley to fire up the Republican base. He said he was in New Hampshire to give a speech and to gauge how much support he had should he decide to run for president. “This president has done more damage to our economy than any American president ever,” said Giuliani who served two terms as New York City’s mayor from 1994 to 2001. “I don’t think there has ever been a time in which we sustained unemployment this high for so long since the depression.” He said President Obama makes excuses when he blames the country’s economic woes on the Bush Administration. Giuliani said those kinds of excuses would never fly when he was a mayor. “People would have laughed at me,” said Giuliani. “He’s had every chance to straighten it (the econ-


omy) out and he’s made it worse.” While polls suggested that Giuliani could be a front runner if he jumped in the race, however, he was dismissive of the importance of early polls. All they prove is the field is wide open, he said. “You’re always more popular if you’re not running or right after you lose,” he said, smiling. On June 2, Romney announced what everyone expected: He was running for president. Governor Romney reached out to media across New Hampshire in a series on phone interviews. “It was a very well kept secret,” he joked. The plan for his announcement was leaked to the media more than a week ahead of time. Romney said he didn’t consider himself the front runner for the GOP nomination, but while his opponents were taking swings at him he was taking aim at President Obama. The unemployment rate has continued to rise, he said, and the recession has only become worse since Obama took office. The president has failed, and Romney said voters can look to him as a reliable, tested alternative. The recession that began in December of 2007 actually ended six months after President Obama’s inaugura-


tion, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the non-partisan group that tracks recessions, but unemployment has remained high despite economic growth since then. “When President Obama ran, we heard promises,” Romney said, “but he didn’t have a record.” Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty promised to tell Americans the hard truth if elected president when he stopped by Ray Shakir’s home on June 11. “We’ve got a country in great trouble,” he said, “and we don’t have a long time to fix it.” “Every Republican is going to come to events like this and say many of the same things,” he said, “but voters have a key question to ask: ‘Who is this person? Do they live the values they espouse?’” Furthermore, he said, the Republican Party has become a big tent party, with social conservatives, fiscal conservatives, Tea Party conservatives, defense conservatives and more. “We’re going to have to find a candidate who authentically and genuinely appeals to all of that.” Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was the lone Republican presidential candidate to have have climbed Mount Everest. Billed as a long-shot to get his party’s nomination, he believed in July that it’s an easier mountain to conquer than the world’s largest peak. “I live my life ‘in the moment,’ striving to be satisfied with who I am right now, regardless of the situation or the place,” Johnson said. “Life is a journey not a destination. I climbed Mount Everest and I can honestly say that the journey — the preparation, the training, the waiting and the climb — were every bit as passionate and joyful as was reaching the destination — being at the summit, on the top of the world. Oh, and yes it was all very cool to reach the top!” Johnson is considerably less famous than Bill Richardson — a Democratic governor from New Mexico who ran for president in the last primary cycle. The difference, said Johnson, was Richardson’s zeal for self-promotion. Johnson said as governor he had two spokespeople while Richardson had about 26 press people with assistants. “Here’s someone who I would argue did nothing but just have a great band going — it was a brass band everywhere he went,” said Johnson. “You couldn’t help but absorb some of the noise. I wasn’t about noise. I was about doing things and making a difference. I have a record, I should be the front runner.” Johnson, along with former Louisiana Governor see PRIMARY page 15

Tele-Talk Would you prefer standard streetlights with flags and wreaths, or decorative streetlights with no attachments? The Mount Washington Valley Preservation Association is proposing to replace decorative streetlight fixtures in North Conway Village with energyefficient LED lights. The group is asking that the town then use savings from reduced electricity costs to turn on some of the streetlights that were turned off several years ago as a cost-cutting measure. During the course of that discussion during a selectmen's meeting this week, Janice Crawford, executive director of the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce, raised the issue of flags and wreaths on the streetlights. The existing historic-looking streetlights don't leave room for flags, wreaths or other decorative attachments, which Crawford said has prompted a number of complaints. The choice, she said, is between standard light fixtures that could accommodate flags and wreaths, or the decorative streetlights with no attachments. She said she wants to hear from people as to what they prefer. This week's question is: Would you prefer standard streetlights with flags and wreaths, or decorative streetlights with no attachments?

Barrett Law, PLLC


The Verdict That Wasn’t Iowa settled nothing. What happened Tuesday night on the plains and in the countless small farm communities and small towns of America's great crossroads state — the place, in pioneer days as in our modern political calendar, that Americans traversed on their way to someplace else — was not an act of futility, but it wasn't one of finality either. In the freezing temperatures of early January, Iowa did what it almost always does. In a year when the Republicans alone hold contested caucuses, with a right-leaning politics that doesn't reflect the rest of the party or country, Iowa didn't answer questions; it posed them. It didn't respond to important unknowns, it raised them. Iowa didn't resolve things when it presented victories to candidates like Sen. Tom Harkin in 1992 or former Gov. Mike Huckabee in 2008, who had strength but not stamina, and soon vanished. It didn't bring things to a conclusion when it sent plausible nominees like Vice President George H.W. Bush in 1980 and Rep. Richard A. Gephardt and Sen. Robert J. Dole in 1988 onto New Hampshire, where they all lost. It didn't do much when it elevated Sen. Paul Simon and the Rev. Pat Robertson, whose strong second-place showings in 1988 infused them with confidence if not long-term political credibility. It didn't even settle things when it gave early triumphs to eventual nominees Walter F. Mondale in 1984 and Barack Obama in 2008, both of whom required months more of struggle to capture their nominations. So what did all of those negative ads, those endless afternoons of coffee shop and legion hall encounters, those cloying appeals to Iowa ego, accomplish? They were not wasted, except for maybe the Iowa chauvinism, which over the years has given us subsidies for ethanol, which expired over the weekend, and a national focus on an electorate that is more conservative, more white and more educated than the country at large. Because now we can adjust our focus and, in New Hampshire next Tuesday and beyond, examine these questions: * Just how strong is Mitt Romney anyway? The former Massachusetts governor got about a quarter of the vote, which is what he has been polling for months — and what he captured four years ago in a losing effort. That quarter slice was enough, in a deeply split field, to allow him to put on a brave face last night, but it was far from the decisive verdict he hoped to win. He and his Republican-establishment supporters have to worry that a candidate who has the experience of an earlier presidential campaign and massive financial advantages seems stuck at about a quarter of the vote of his own party. Now Romney moves into friendlier territory in New Hampshire, where nearly every Massachusetts presidential candidate running in an open contest has prevailed since the 1960s. On paper, Romney now has to be considered the favorite, even a strong favorite. And if Romney prevails next Tuesday, Iowa could be but a distant memory and he could be hard to stop. * Just how enduring is Rick Santorum? He has won a triumphant pass into the next round, New Hampshire, and perhaps into the one after that, South Carolina, where his enhanced posi-

tion makes him a formidable contender among the religious conservatives who are such a visible part of the state's Republican scene. But the Palmetto State hasn't rolled over for social conservatives: Huckabee was upended there by Sen. John McCain four years ago, and the Rev. Robertson did not prevail against Vice President Bush in 1988. Santorum has spunk, spirit and, now, serious political bona fides. His is one of the more remarkable political stories of recent times — with a stunning presidential-caucus performance in Iowa more than five years after losing his Senate re-election bid in Pennsylvania by 18 percentage points. Right now his campaign is cloaked in romance and stardust. But he lacks money and organization, which are more prosaic but often more powerful in presidential politics. Besides, he may be susceptible to the forces that elevated five other non-Romney contenders to the fore only to see them all falter under greater scrutiny and formidable negative attacks from others, including forces associated with Romney. Until now, Santorum has been regarded as an innocuous, well-meaning afterthought in a V-neck sweater. That status ended last night, and the barrage against him almost certainly will begin this morning. * Just how powerful a force is Ron Paul? Paul is today what he was yesterday, a candidate with a loyal cadre of supporters but almost no chance of substantially expanding his coalition. It is true that the physics of the issues have moved in Paul's direction; he no longer is the lone voice in expressing skepticism of the Federal Reserve Bank and rethinking America's far-flung international involvements. But his association with supporters who have fringe ideas with odious overtones limits his ability to reach moderates and undecided voters whom Republicans know they will need to prevail against Obama in November. In entrance polls last night, they showed they want to choose a winner, not only someone whose ideas they consider winning. The danger to the Republicans is not in Paul's resilience and determination to remain in the GOP field after New Hampshire and South Carolina; it's in the possibility that results like last night's might embolden him to bolt the party and undertake a third-party candidacy that could siphon off support from the eventual Republican nominee. * What about Newt Gingrich? He was the great phenomenon of December but in the new year went from presidential timber to political tinder and from first place to fourth in Iowa. He remains the great idea machine of the Republican Party and, unlike Rep. Michele Bachmann and Gov. Rick Perry, very likely will continue to be a factor in the campaign, perhaps with a comeback, but almost certainly with the sort of debate performances that define the Republican conversation going forward. He didn't flounder because of a bad Iowa performance. He had a bad Iowa performance because he floundered. In that regard, the candidate of big ideas is proof of the big truth emerging from last night: Iowa didn't matter. It only clarified what does matter. David M.

Thanks from Waldorf School to Key Club To the editor: Kennett High School’s Key Club, organized by Greg Garrick and Barry Chisholm, has graciously helped the White Mountain Waldorf School host another successful Winter Family Craft Faire at the school’s Albany campus. The White Mountain Waldorf School extends its sincere thanks to the Key Club student volunteers for their enthusiastic help with the craft stations, guest welcoming, lunch serving and overall helpful and friendly demeanors; they really helped make the day fun for all. This year’s Winter Family Craft Faire on Nov. 19 was a huge success. There were puppet shows, storytellers, games and free multiple craft making stations for kids (candles dipping, wet felted ornaments, paper crowns etc), as well as numerous opportunities for holiday shoppers to find locally unique handmade gifts — thanks to local crafters offering beauti-

ful jewelry, glass ornaments, wood-turnings and even home-made chocolate. A delicious and wholesome lunch including home-made soups, breads, desserts and beverages all prepared by Waldorf parents was served. If you would like to learn more about the White Mountain Waldorf School, please visit its website: The school opens its doors each month to parents interested in learning more about the Waldorf educational approach. Stop by one of the Walk Through The Grades to see how Waldorf Education is taught in the elementary and middle school classrooms, by educating the whole child: academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually! Please call 603447-3168 for any questions. Diana Robbins, marketing and enrollment director White Mountain Waldorf School Albany

Open your heart to homeless animals To the editor: In this celebratory season I urge all animal lovers to consider giving a second chance at life to a homeless pet through adoption at our local shelter, the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire-North. Animals bring warmth and unconditional love into an adoptive home. Adopting an animal sets a noble example for children, teaching responsibility and encouraging compassion while providing care and a permanent home for otherwise helpless pets. Adult adopters will discover the rewards of incomparable friendship. Animal adoption is a serious, long-term commitment, but one that fills a heart and home with great joy. It saves

a life and opens space in the shelter for yet another needy animal. If you cannot make this commitment to adopt, then please consider the many other ways to help the animals of the ARLNH-N. You can donate money or needed items or volunteer at the shelter, perhaps walking the dogs or assisting with the cats. Shopping in one of the shelter’s resale stores, Harrison House at the shelter, or ReTails at Norcross Place, North Conway helps provide funds to care for the animals waiting to be adopted. Visit, for information on the work of ARL-NHN and how you can support its mission. Dianne Zoppa North Conway

Up close and personal: Do retail politics matter anymore? BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Do retail politics still work in New Hampshire, or for that matter do they even exist anymore? Heading into this Tuesday’s presidential primary, it seems like the days of being able to look politicians in the eye, shake their hands, and pepper them with questions to assess their character are becoming more and more a thing of the past — being overridden by a series of seemingly endless televised debates; and candidates using the power of Internet through e-mail and various Facebook sites to get their messages out. This election appears to be pitting the traditional retail politics model against new methods, which need not rely on the local, human touch. Four years ago when a vacancy loomed in the White House, Democrats and Republicans alike made pilgrimages to the Mount Washington Valley courting Granite Staters votes. President Barack Obama held two packed town hall meetings in Conway; Hillary Clinton drew over 1,000 people to Kennett High School; even former President Bill Clinton came to town to stump for his wife. The candidates — John McCain, Dennis Kucinich, Bill Richardson, John Edwards, Ron Paul and Mitt Romney all came and drew crowds. Residents got their questions answered, posed for photos with the candidates and left with a political sign or two and a little more insight into the candidate they’d just spent an hour with. Today, there are no signs — well maybe a couple, but not enough to be counted on two hands — around the area. In the week following the Iowa caucus not one candidate — or even a surrogate — is setting foot in Carroll County let alone the Mount Washington Valley. Gone are the days when Carol King or Martin Sheen came to this neck of the woods to rally support for a candidate. Mount Washington Valley seemed to be somewhat of an afterthought this election cycle. Only Romney and former Utah governor Jon Huntsman held town hall meetings here and neither attracted more than 150 citizens. Such traditional stops at the Conway Cafe, the Blueberry Muffin, The Met and the Gibson Center were virtually ignored this time around. Still, there are some candidates who firmly believe in retail politics and believe they still work in New Hampshire. Proving that retail politics isn’t quite dead yet, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum worked Iowa harder than any other candidate and it paid off. Santorum held a staggering 358 town hall meetings in Iowa and it was on the 358th he learned that his support had finally broken into the double digits. After spending a whopping 100 days in the state, traversing all 99 counties, Santorum managed to more than triple his support from 5 percent in a CNN/Time/ORC poll in early December to 16 percent just days before caucuses and on Tuesday night finished in a virtual dead heat

Jon Huntsman, the former governor of Utah, was one of the few candidates to hold a town hall meeting in Conway.

with Romney at 25 percent. “You can’t buy Iowa. You’ve got to go out and earn Iowa. You’ve got to meet with Iowans,” Santorum told a crowd of about 100 gathered at a cafe in Dubuque on Wednesday afternoon. “Iowans are not going to just defer their judgment to national pundits or national polls.” Forty-six percent of those who took part in the caucus admitted they didn’t finally decide on a candidate until just a few days prior to the event. Santorum hit the ground running in New Hampshire Wednesday, sticking to the same blueprint as Iowa. He had 10 town hall meetings scheduled over the five days leading up to the vote. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich had seven planned and Romney and Huntsman both had five scheduled.

Michele Bachmann enjoys talking with voters.

Romney currently leads the polls in the Granite State. It’s his second presidential campaign and believes not a great deal has changed over the past four years in terms of retail politics here. “I think the people in New Hampshire want to see that you’re willing to earn it,” he said, “that you care enough about getting that job that you’re willing to knock on doors and shake hands and go to restaurants and have town meetings. I think people want to ask you questions themselves. “What’s always interesting to me is at the town meetings you get questions of a very wide nature. It’s not narrow, it’s not just the issues that you read in the newspaper, it’s what people are caring about from day to day,” Romney continued. “I actually think the town meeting is the most



fun of the political experiences one has and I enjoy doing them here in New Hampshire.” Have the debates watered things down? “At least 10 plus forums and more coming on, it’s a lot,” Romney said. “I think the debates are making a real difference; they may have a bigger impact than advertising, broadcast advertising has had. Typically political advertising doesn’t have a big presence in print but it has on the air. Last time around I think we began advertising in March and we just began advertising this time in November. So, yeah, the debates and what we called earned media are probably having a bigger impact but in New Hampshire I still believe it’s town meetings, voterto-voter contact, that creates the word of mouth that wins it in the final analysis.” While Romney doesn’t think the landscape has changed, District I Executive Councilor Ray Burton believes it has. “No question 2011-12 in the presidential race is entirely different than it was 10 years ago,” Burton said. “I was involved in the Howard Baker campaign and the Lamar Alexander campaign. There was a lot more onthe-street stuff and kind of the oldfashioned way that some of us are used to campaigning and reaching out to voters — hand-to-hand combat.” Burton, who has endorsed Romney, said only one candidate had visited his hometown of Bath. “Jon Huntsman stopped at the Bath Brick Store,” he said. “Good friends of mine, Christine and Charlie Green, neighbors of mine down towards Woodsville, are kind of shepherdsee next page

New Mexico abandons New Hamp“Because I felt that he could win shire completely, and a four-term in the general election as a RepubCongressman and governor can’t get lican,” he said. “A poll that was out Brian Wiggin, of Conway, presented Mitt Romney with a bottle of chocolate milk during a campaign an invitation to a national debate that today (Dec. 16), 50 percent of 1,000 stop last month. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO) takes place in New Hampshire. Oh, had Barack Obama at 50-50 about how people feel about him.

Burton has served on the governor’s executive council for 28 of the last 30 years. He intends to announce his own reelection campaign on Jan. 28 at 6 p.m. at Colebrook Country Club. “I’m already two or three votes behind,” Burton said, smiling, using one of his familiar campaign lines , and he remains one of the few politicians who actually asks people directly for their vote. What value does the New Hampshire primary still play? “We are losing that touch of what does this candidate look like when I look right into their eyes? What kind of handshake have they got? How are they responding? Do they have a sense of humor or are they downtrodden and are they going to kill everything and everybody in sight when they go down there (to Washington DC)?” Burton said. “We’re small enough that these candidates have to come through here,” he said. “You had Romney in here, they know they have to come through here, it’s the tradition.” Former Louisiana governor Buddy Roemer moved to New Hampshire and tried to follow the successful campaign blueprint McCain laid out to win two primaries here: Meet the people. “My candidacy is handicapped by lack of information and the ability to get it out,” he said. “If the whole world is looking out the window and you’re in the room shaking hands, it doesn’t help because they’re looking out the window. Roemer placed all of his political eggs in New Hampshire’s basket, spending all his time here, but sadly believes New Hampshire’s history of retail politics may be on its last legs. “Let me carefully but honestly answer you,” he said. “I’ve gained a lot being here and I don’t put New Hampshire down, but it’s not a strategy that I would recommend to any other candidate ever again. The world has changed. It’s Internet driven, it’s television dominated and politics has adjusted. “The money game is still important,” he added, “but the biggest game in town are the debates. I wouldn’t suggest to New Hampshire that it quit being a lead state and being a retail state, but the power of that has diminished.” On Dec. 22, Roemer even put out a two-page release about the future of retail politics in New Hampshire. “Granite Staters have to wonder if the first-in-thenation primary is as relevant now as it used to be. I must tell you, people of New Hampshire — you need to act now, before you could lose this special privilege. From the perspective of a candidate, it is clear to me that the continued relevance of a small state primary based on retail politics is in jeopardy.

their names receiving top billing. It’s the national networks that pull all the strings. It’s always someone else’s fault. “New Hampshire, if you don’t begin to take your special privilege seriously, more and more candidates will bypass your state altogether. And don’t be surprised when the decision to go after big media leads to the expansion of big government. They go hand in hand. You still have the power to stop this, to send a message to Washington and to the country that limited government and retail politics still matter.” Like Roemer, former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman has staked his candidacy on a grassroots effort in the Granite State. Huntsman, who has held over 150 gatherings in New Hampshire, has a message for the voters, leading up to


Tuesday. “Continue to take your responsibility as first primary in the nation seriously because you punch above your weight. When New Hampshire weighs in with their vote, people in this country pay attention. I can honestly say that coming from the other side of the country. When New Hampshire weighs in you probably don’t realize it living right here in the middle of it, when you weigh in people pay attention. Why, because you’ve had access to the candidates, you get to see them, you get to hear them on a regular basis — therefore your level of analysis and scrutiny are that much better. So when you weigh in, it’s a vote that really does mean something and whoever carries the state and does first, second and third, that is pretty much a clear message to the rest of the country that they’ve passed the muster in the most rigorous of grassroots, oldfashioned politics.”

PRIMARY from page six

and Congressman Buddy Roemer both had trouble getting onto the national debate stage, which hurt their political visibility. Many people asked Johnson how his libertarian message squared with the Republican base. Johnson said he faced the same challenges in New Mexico’s primary when he didn’t get any of the social conservative vote. But he said if he could get through the primary he could defeat the president in the general election. One poll that showed approval ratings of each of the candidates in their own states said only one had a positive rating in his or her home state. “It was me!” said Johnson.”I’m held in great respect in New Mexico in a state that’s two-to-one Democrat by that poll. I’ve got a plus-12 rating. I’m slain by the fact I wouldn’t be in the debates.” Roemer, who was the lone candidate to visit The Conway Daily Sun more than once, thought there was almost a conspiracy to keep him out of the debate. “My candidacy is handicapped by lack of information and the ability to get it out,” he said. “If the whole world is looking out the window and you’re in the room shaking hands, it doesn’t help because

they’re looking out the window. People ask me, ‘Why haven’t you been in a debate? I like how you sound, but what’s wrong with you?’ Debate presence verifies who you are. It kind of certifies your candidacy. It says that some power, no one knows who they are, says that you’re OK, let’s hear from you.” Roemer, who is running a campaign where he’s seeking maximum financial donations of no more than $100 from any one person or business, explained his efforts to get into the debate.

Jon Huntsman has spent a lot of time in the Granite State campaigning.

“The first three debates I was not a candidate for president. I was in the exploratory phase. I announced at Dartmouth about 12 weeks ago. I missed the first three debates because you have to be a formal candidate. I was not, I had no problem with that. I think that’s a minimal requirement. “The next three debates, I called the debate sponsors and that was MSNBC, FOX and CNN and I was told they had agreed to certain rules and you had to have 1 percent (rating) in national polls. They actually said five national polls and I was at zero. So I didn’t like that. I said, ‘Do you know that I’m the only person running who has been a congressman and a governor?’ I said, ‘Do you know I’m the only person running who has actually created jobs in a billion dollar bank that he started with no bailout money? Do you know that I’m the only person running who has been to China 20 times on his own ticket?’ They said, ‘You can get 1 percent, get it and call us back.’ “We got it, I called them back and we were now at debate five, six and seven and they said we’ve raised the rule to 2 percent,” Roemer continued. “OK, I was frustrated and when I put the phone down I cursed. I don’t do that often, but I did it then. I said to Al Hunt at Bloomberg that I’m getting a pattern. I’m getting a pattern here that whatever I do it won’t be quite good enough. He said, ‘That’s not true, Buddy. I’d love to have you, you would make this debate, but we have these national rules and we have to follow them.’ Bloomberg has signed on to them. So we went out and

got 2 percent. We called for the last two debates, I was told they had one new requirement: You had to raise $500,000 in the last 90 days. So I’ve gone from no standards except announcing, to 1 percent, to 2 percent, to 2 percent with a $500,000 raised. In that time period, I had raised $330,000. My average contribution was $40.45. I was damn proud of it, no one else can match it, but it wasn’t good enough. I took no PAC money, no Super PAC money. They’ve are raising a hurdle that for a candidate like me is hard to make.” In a University of New

Hampshire/WMUR Granite State poll released July 5, 35 percent of likely Republican Primary voters said they would vote for Romney. Bachmann, fresh off a strong debate performance in June, climbed into second place with 12 percent, followed by Paul (7 percent), and former New York City Mayor Giuliani (7 percent), who had not declared his candidacy. A number of long-time candidates were unable to gain traction in the Granite State including Pawlenty, who sat at 3 percent; 2008 vice presidential candidate Palin was also at 3 percent; Gingrich slipped to 1 percent; and Johnson and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum were both below 1 percent. Among newcomers to the campaign, Perry was supported by 4 percent of likely primary voters; former Utah governor and Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman was at 2 percent; former Godfathers Pizza CEO Cain was at 2 percent; and Roemer was named by less than 1 percent. Two days after the poll, Paul stumped in Conway to a passionate group of supporters. Monetary policy issues seemed arcane to many voters in 2008 when Paul last sought the presidential nomination but this time around he said that’s where he’s made the most headway. “Look at the coalition I’ve built with (auditing) the Federal Reserve,” said Paul, referring to a federal audit that was put in the Dodd-Frank financial see next page

reform package. “Nobody cared about it before. Now it’s a bipartisan issue. It could well be the big issue next year because we’re going to have a lot of inflation. The blame is going to be placed on the Fed where it deserves to be put. Like 80 percent of the people say we should audit the Federal Reserve. That’s fantastic!” Paul was asked if America is obsolete. “If we continue to do what we’re doing, this will be a third world nation,” he said. “It might take 10, 20 or 30 years to sink because we’re still wealthy in many ways and we have a strong military, which conveys confidence to the world. The dollar holds up better than it deserves. If we continue to do this and don’t go back to work again we’re going to get poorer and poorer. Other countries and the Far East are introducing gold to their currency. They are buying gold. India buys a lot of gold. We will be so poor we will have to stop all this militarism. It won’t be all that bad. Maybe it will make us go back to work. Maybe we have to go through that so people realize you just can’t keep borrowing.” On Aug. 14, Pawlenty became the first big-name candidate to drop out of the presidential race after a disappointing third-place finish at a straw poll in Ames, Iowa. Bachmann won with 4,823 votes followed by Paul, 4,671; Pawlenty, 2,293; former Santorum, 1,657; Cain, 1,456; Perry, 718; Romney, 567; Gingrich, 385; former Huntsman, 69; and Michigan Congressman Thad McCotter, 35. New Hampshire was able to maintain it’s first-inthe-national primary status, but it took a bit of political maneuvering. Secretary of State Bill Gardner promised in October to do all he could to preserve the Granite State’s first status. He explained why New Hampshire’s primary tradition is important. “Every four years, Americans elect the most powerful leader in the world,” he said. “We go to the polls and select the man or woman who will be president of the United States. It is probably the most important political decision each of us makes because our choice can affect the lives and happiness of ourselves and our children for years into our future.” New Hampshire withstood political efforts by Nevada, Florid,a South Carolina and Iowa to to move to the head of the line and was able to set Jan. 10 as primary day, just a week after the Iowa caucuses. While several Republican presidential candidates opposed Nevada moving its caucus up on the political calendar to challenge New Hampshire’s first-inthe-nation status, one — former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman — took things a step further. Huntsman skipped the debate in Nevada, opting instead to conduct a town hall meeting in Hopkinton. “I believe if you’re gonna boycott Nevada for trying to pull a fast one, then you need to do more than just offer words, lip service,” Huntsman said by phone. “I’ve asked several other candidates to follow suit, but no one has yet to my knowledge.” Nevada was targeting a caucus date of Jan. 14, but Granite Staters want the date pushed back in order to allow New Hampshire to go with its primary on Jan 10. Cain joined Bachmann, Gingrich and Santorum in

boycotting the caucus, but Hunstman was the only one to boycott the debate as well. “We decided to do things the right way and that’s cancel our participation in the debate,” Huntsman said. “I firmly believe we need to do all we can to preserve a process that’s very unique in this country. New Hampshire plays that role better than anyone else. “Some of the other candidates have (rebuffed Nevada) in words,” he continued, “I’m hoping they’ll join me in doing so in deeds.” In October, Cain made his way up the political ladder and toted his 999 tax plan along the way — it involves a 9 percent tax on corporate income, a 9 percent tax on individual income, and a 9 percent national sales tax. Cain never visited Mount Washington Valley and his campaign never responded to media inquiries from this paper. For Governor Perry, who like Cain has still yet to visit Mount Washington Valley, debates prove to be his nemesis — not his opponents, but his own words. Perry’s biggest debate gaffe occurred on Nov. 9. That night said he wanted to get rid of three agencies of the federal government, but could only initially name two and later just one. In easily the most painful moment of an already uneven set of debate performances, Perry fumbled badly when describing how he would cut government in the CNBC Republican debate. Perry began by saying “ I will tell you, it is three agencies of government when I get there that are gone. Commerce, Education, and the — what’s the third one there? Let’s see.” After struggling for a while, Romney attempted to throw Perry a bone and volunteered “EPA” — the Environmental Protection Agency. But it wasn’t the

EPA, so Perry struggled on to hit on the right answer. “The third agency of government I would — I would do away with Education, the...” Perry continued to try and find his answer. “Commerce,” an unknown voice volunteered, according to the debate transcript. “Commerce and, let’s see,” Perry answered. “I can’t. The third one, I can’t. Sorry. Oops.” The next time he was asked a question, Perry said the Department of Energy was the third agency he would eliminate. The audience applauded politely. Congresswoman Bachmann came to Conway Nov. 10 for her first visit in the Granite State since June, and drew a crowd at the Lobster Trap. She railed against President Obama and the rest of Washington at a town hall meeting “We all know the government is spending way too much money,” she said. “What Washington is doing

right now is destroying our country.” She blamed her absence in New Hampshire on the debt debates in Washington that occurred earlier this year. “That’s why you didn’t see me in New Hampshire a lot this summer,” she said. “My first duty was to go back to Washington D.C.” But Bachmann did carve out time to visit other states. She went to Iowa 11 times in July, August and September, a period during which she didn’t come to New Hampshire once. Her absence from the state may be part of the reason her poll numbers have taken a dive. According to a WMUR Granite State Poll released in early November, Bachmann was registering about 2 percent support among likely New Hampshire primary voters. “As the Republican field solidifies, Mitt Romney continues to lead among New Hampshire Republicans with 37 percent support,” the UNH Survey Center, which conducted the poll, said. “Herman Cain has moved into a distant second place.” Bachmann urged those in attendance to come out and support her come January. “I’m here to make a promise to you,” she said. “It’s that I know what needs to be done. I’ve been there fighting on the front lines. I know what these problems are and it’s going to be tough, but I can do it. With your help I know that we can.” On Nov. 18, Governor Huntsman gave the Mount Washington Valley some national attention when he appeared on Saturday Night Live.

the show, where he was interviewed by New Hampshire native and host Seth Meyers. During the banter with Meyers, Hunstman made a point of talking about his love for New Hampshire — including North Conway. Asked by Meyers whether he feared alienating other parts of the country by focusing all of his efforts “in one basket, New Hampshire,” Huntsman replied, “Seth, I love all of America. From Dallas, Texas, to Manchester, N.H. From the majestic Rocky Mountains, to New Hampshire’s beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee. From the innovation of Silcon Valley, to the affordable outlet malls of North Conway, N.H.” In one last shameless effort to woo Granite State Republican and Independents during the “Saturday Night Live” skit, Huntsman told Meyers that he is not beholden to voters from any one state; that on the campaign trail, he likes to “spread his wings and fly like a Purple Finch” — which, as all Granite Staters well know, is New Hampshire’s state bird. He then asked Meyers whether his parents were registered voters. “My mom is a Democrat, and my father is an Independent,” said Meyers, to which Hunstman said, “Say hi to your dad for me.” When the New Hampshire Primary was a little over six week away, surprisingly six out of 10 voters polled remained undecided on who they would cast their ballot for, according to a WMUR/Uni-

on Nov. 27, Huntsman smiled and said he came to town “to pick up a little bit of something, a little bit of love that I’m hoping you’ll give me in return, for heaven’s sake. If nothing else, I hope we helped to pick up business a little bit here.” Huntsman said he believes reform is in needed in Congress, and that it should start with term limits. “Where is the sanity and common sense in politics today?” he asked. “You’ve got Congress at the extreme ends rhetorically pointing fingers of blame at a time when the work of the people needs to get done. First and foremost we need term limits. As president I’m going to talk about term limits. This thing called incumbency, it grows very deep in terms of its roots and pretty soon you become part of the structure and it’s impossible to ever leave your office in Washington. I say this country needs term limits. “Number two, we need to do away with the revolving door that allows members of Congress to go right into the lobbying profession, trading in on their relationships and insider information,” Huntsman continued and drew wide applause for the comment. During a 70-minute editorial board at The Conway Daily Sun Nov. 28, Huntsman expanded on the lobbying profession, recommending any former senator Rick Santorum brought his momentum from Iowa to New Hampshire.

The poll was released Nov. 24 and had Romney, 42 percent; Gingrich, 15 percent; Paul, 12 percent; Huntsman, 8 percent; Cain, 4 percent; Perry, 4; Bachmann, 2 percent; Roemer, 1 percent; Johnson, 1 percent; Santorum, 1 percent; and businessman Fred Karger, 1 percent. “The voters still don’t know a lot of these candidates, with the exception of Romney,” said Andy Smith of the UNH Survey Center. “I think there can be a lot of movement.

perch, but I think he can be brought down quite a few pegs, and it remains to be seen what happens to the alternative to Romney.” Gingrich was being hailed as the comeback kid thanks to a series of strong debate performances. Although his stock start to rise, he almost immediately became the target of his opponents who ramped up attack ads about his moral fiber.

the greatest nation on Earth to be.” On Dec. 2, a month from the Iowa caucuses, Senator Santorum appeared to be a long shot, but he believed voters hadn’t made their minds up yet and if they looked his way and listened they’d like his message. “I’ve got plenty of time,” Santorum said. The prospects of other candidates have risen and fallen based on debate performances, “Herman with his oneliners, Newt with his glibness,” Santorum said, but they haven’t conveyed the candidates’ character, experience, an understanding of the issues as well as they could. “I’m not the flashiest guy out there, but I’m the guy who checks all those boxes.” So instead of relying on impersonal television performances, Santorum put his trust in traditional retail politics. He’s visited 99 counties in Iowa, the site of the nation’s first caucuses, and conducted more than 100 events in New Hampshire. He’s counting on those personal investments of time to make the difference when voters cast the first ballots in 2012. Santorum is most known for his conviction on social issues. He is pro-life, against gay marriage, and wears a blue rubber bracelet with the word F.A.M.I.L.Y. (Forget About Me I Love You) on the same hand as his wedding band. “Ultimately America was founded as a moral enterprise,” he said. It’s explicit in the Declaration of Independents, he said: Americans were endowed by God with inalienable rights, and it’s up to government to protect those rights. “When we stray from that, we detract from what America is.” Civil law should conform to the higher law, Santorum said. “When it doesn’t we’re out of sync.” People who support abortion and gay marriage are “out of sync with nature and nature’s god.” Santorum is comfortable debating these issues. “I feel strongly and passionately about what I believe,” he said. The purpose of civil discourse, he said, is to come into the public sphere and “make your argument.” Cain told supporters Dec. 3 that he was suspending his presidential campaign, which had become hobbled in recent weeks by allegations of sexual harassment and an Atlanta woman’s claim that they carried on a 13-year affair. Cain said he came to the decision after assessing the impact that the allegations were having on his wife, his family and his supporters. Romney was confident and on message when he visited town Dec. 12. “I still am the guy,” he said with a wide grin when asked about the race. The country cannot afford four more years under President Barack Obama, he said. That’s the message Romney brought with him when he met with the editorial board of The Conway Daily Sun. “We are on a road to Greece and Italy,” he said, referring to two countries in the Eurozone on the verge of bankruptcy. “This is a crisis.” The country is heading toward a cliff, he said. The plunge is five to 10 years out if nothing changes. What will it take to avert economic disaster? Someone in the president’s seat with a history of creating jobs, Romney said. Someone with experience reaching across the aisle and working for bipartisan solutions. “I’ve done it,” he said, pointing to his

experience in Massachusetts, where he worked with a Democratic legislature. “We succeeded together.” Obama talked about bringing bipartisanship to Washington in his 2008 campaign, Romney said, “and he went there and did all the wrong things.” “He didn’t need any Republican votes,” he said, so he “didn’t reach across the aisle.” That’s not what the country needs, Romney argued, and that’s not the attitude he would bring were he elected. “I understand how Washington works,” he said. Even if the two parties disagree on policies, he said, they share common principles on some issues. Those shared principles formed the basis for policy both sides could support in Massachusetts, he said, and he would do the same thing at the federal level. “Democrats love America just like Republicans,” he said. “The process can work.” Romney rejected assertions that he is hard to pin down, that his positions are somewhat transient. “My positions today are the same positions I had four years ago (the first time he ran for the GOP presidential nomination),” he said. Since his first campaign in the early 1990s, he said, his mind has changed on some things, but if it hadn’t “you’d be considered stubborn.” “You want someone who has demonstrated the capacity to lead,” he said. “I like gathering a lot of input, I like gathering a lot of data.” Like everyone else, he said, “I make mistakes. I learn from them.” “You say what you believe,” he said, “and let people say what they want.” On Dec. 28, Johnson announced in a message to his followers that he will no longer be seeking the Republican nomination, but that of the Libertarian Party, which would also put him on a general election ballot in all 50 states. Johnson wrote in a letter to his supporters that the move was both “a difficult decision – and an easy one,” because of his history with the Republican Party but also because of his exclusion from many debates and disagreements with most candidates. He went on to issue a harsher condemnation of his former Republican colleagues: “Frankly, I have been deeply disappointed by the treatment I received in the Republican nomination process. Other candidates with no national name identification like Herman Cain, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman were allowed to participate in the debates. Incredibly candidates with no executive experience like Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum were allowed to participate while I, a successful two-term governor with a solid record of job creation, was arbitrarily excluded by elitist media organizations in New York. My appeals to the Republican National Chairman for basic fairness were ignored.” Johnson urged his supporters to go with Paul in the caucuses. “The cause of individual liberty and freedom is bigger and more important than any candidate or campaign,” he said Saturday. “I am hopeful that in urging my supporters in Iowa to vote for Ron Paul in the coming caucuses, a victory for the principles we share can be won.” In the latest CNN/Time poll, released Dec. 28, Romney was at 44 percent, Paul, 17; Gingrich, 16; Huntsman, 9; Santorum, 4; Bachmann, 3; and Perry, 2.

The Evergreen Link is an attractive short cut, which slashes a mile and half off the Cold Brook Trail, which starts out on Adams Road. Passing a closed gate and climbing the dirt road, I reached a junction with a grassy logging road, bore left and walked for a third of a mile. In a small clearing I took a right on another logging road, which had yellow trail markers on the trees. After a few bends in the road, the obvious trail leads off to the left into the woods. There was no snow in the woods, and very little ice at that point. It was striking. That would start to change at about 2,000 feet with ice flows on the trail. Then, reaching snow up on the first wide ledges a few hundred feet higher, the appearance of winter grew as I climbed, and the lack of snow and ice below was soon forgotten in the cold and wintry conditions, culminating in the frigid summit. see next page

Book discussion group meeting in January TAMWORTH — There will be a book study group meeting Saturday mornings, beginning in January, to discuss the book “Healing the Heart of Democracy,” by Parker J. Palmer. The group plans to meet Jan. 7, Jan. 14, Jan. 21, Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb.11, 2012, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at Cook Library in Tamworth. The group is free and welcomes

all to come and join in discussions about restoring civil discourse to big political issues. Palmer says in the prelude to his new book that looking at politics through the eye of the heart can liberate us from seeing it as a chess game of moves and countermoves or a shell game for seizing power or a blame game of Whac-A-Mole.

tive or positive? Am I going to walk on rocks or ice? With MICROspikes, you can do a little of both, but ice is better for their longevity. Soon I reached the first ledge and encountered the west wind for the first time. Only then did I know I would have a classic Cold Brook Trail winter day. I stopped to put on my winter parka before the second wide ledge, and kept it on the rest of the day. Out on the open ledges, the views east were stunning in the early morning light. I moved from ledge to trees, to ledge to trees to ledge, then finally reached the long wooded section before the summit. Pausing in the woods just below the summit to get my camera ready, I headed up, passing the foundation of the old fire tower and walking over to the western viewpoint. A white Mount Washington shone like a gem amongst wooded summits. A big lenticular cloud was suspended in the air east of the peak. The best hikes can feel like the whittling away of life’s complications until the heart of the matter is revealed.

This made for an interesting mountain profile — going from what looked like late fall conditions, to deep winter, and back to the still woods of late fall on the way down. But back to early on in the hike, after walking up the flat Evergreen Link, I reached the junction with the Cold Brook Trail, and beyond that the trail soon starting climbing. Here and there the trail was covered with undisturbed leaves and sticks, and there were few signs of others, but I soon spied one set of Vibram tracks from the day before. When I reached the uniform ice flows on the trail, I saw that the person from the day before hadn’t brought traction for his feet, and had to avoid the ice. I didn’t make that mistake this time. I put on my MICROspikes, and enjoyed the feeling of walking up the ice, though avoiding steep ice and keeping to the flatter sections. Having traction or not, brings to mind old fashioned black and white photography. Am I looking at a nega-

possesses strong feet and claws for its work. Its tiny eyes are sharp enough to detect insects so small that most other species probably pass them by. The creeper fills a unique place in the ranks of our insect destroyers: minute insects, their eggs and larvae, moths, caterpillars, small wasps, scales, and plant lice are items of its diet, and they seem always present. Watch for other birds like chickadees constantly searching for this insect fare — which they do have to find in order to live here year-round with us. More and more, I like to find a restful spot to sit on the edge of my forest and watch these encounters between these insect gleaning species amidst the upper canopies of my backyard’s treetops. While I congratulate myself for leaving those aging sylvan specimens for birds to hunt over, I delight when they actually do land and probe, teaching me what they value in the high branches. A dead limb here and there, covered with fungal fruiting bodies, is essentially valuable terrain for their pursuits of insect critters. Coming to and from the feeding station, they demonstrate to me that they need this other valid habitat, too, to legitimately exist in while they habitually fly to my feeders and suet bags. Without these natural food sources, I would be bereft of their visits. The nuthatches stop in their looping flight

and alight on dead limbs to search awhile for sustenance, while enroute to wherever is their home grounds. Downy woodpeckers and chickadees do the same thing, and tufted titmice surprise me likewise. They make me feel like I might actually know what I am doing in managing my beloved trees here, while keeping their insect foraging needs in mind. Brown creepers live in boreal forest types, and mixed coniferous-deciduous forests. They require large trees (dead or alive) for foraging and nesting. The brown creeper breeds from Alaska and Canada south to the Great Lakes States and Connecticut, and also in the Neotropical mountains south to Nicaragua. It spends winters over most of its range. Brown creepers are year-round residents throughout much of the regions wherever we see them. However, brown creepers that breed in the northern part of the geographic range migrate a bit southerly for the winter.

Weekend Warrior

Groomers for starters

It’s 2012 and thanks to the hard work of talented snowmakers around the valley, we’ve all got some terrain to play on. For the glass is half-full club, these are great conditions for dialing in your skiing. As long as you’ve got edges on your skis, the conditions are plenty of fun. You can carve, skid, spin and jump. Here are a couple of goals for your skiing this year. Make these happen

and you are sure to have a memorable season: Number one: Remember that true fun is getting better at doing cool stuff on skis. Whether you are 6 or 60, nothing beats the feeling that comes with accomplishment, and every one of us can still get better. Identify one or two things that you can work on in your skiing, and make those a season long project. Either take a lesson, or

get some coaching tips from one of the coaches on the hill…and then get to work. Number two: Let somebody else teach your spouse or your kids and then let them develop their own passion for the sport. Something happens to all of us when we teach a loved one a skill. We turn into a harsh combination of Vince Lombardi and Mr. Hyde. The best way to help your loved ones

John Macdonald learn the sport is to turn them over to the professionals and then let them learn at their pace. Really. When you get to the hill next time, thank the snow makers and then take your love of the sport to the next level. It really can get better every year. Remember, the best advice of all, take a lesson or attend a race clinic. You’ll have a great time and improve your time. John Macdonald is a Level III Certified PSIA Instructor and is a Race Team Coach at King Pine Ski Area. You can email questions to John at

I probably would have never Nothing too earth shattering about thought to have posted a video on YouTube had it this as most fly shop web sites offer this feature, so not been for John Buckley’s insistence on updating I guess it was time that we entered the 21st Century and thanks to John we have arrived. The Internet has the shops web site for our 10th anniversary. Thanks revolutionized the fly tying community. There was a to John, the shop’s webmaster, the new improved website went live on Jan. 1. time when fly tiers were pretty closed mouth about letting anyone in on their secrets. Thanks to the Internet The reason behind posting on YouTube is to bring just about every fly tier that has mastered the Wooly video to the website’s fly tying page. When the website was first launched the “Fly of the Month” Bugger has a YouTube video. There are, according to

Valley Angler –––––

YouTube, 12,500 fly tying videos on their site. For many years if you wanted to learn to tie flies and you didn’t have a friend to show you how, you purchased a book on the subject. There have been books on fly tying for hundreds of years; however, over the last 40 years there was a sort of renaissance in the publishing of fly tying books. Publishing a book was like “making your bones” and ensuring your reputation as a “certified expert” on the subject. Thanks to the Internet anybody with a digital camera can post a video and present themselves as an “expert.” In the days of books one had to at least go through a publisher and the editing process before the book was released. see next page

I was talking to Dick Stewart, former owner of the North Country Angler and noted author of several books on fly tying, a few days ago.

rainbows had tags from the Rotary ice fishing derby. The rainbow I caught last year also had a tag from the derby. I am guessing that these fish get stocked after the season closes in October and somehow find their way over the dam. I think I might go back and try for these fish during the derby. I might be the first to win an ice fishing derby with a fly rod. See you on the river. Bill and Janet Thompson own North Country Angler in North Conway.

DeRosa is The North Conway Public Library’s first guest speaker in the library’s 2012 speaker’s series. Born in Bath, Maine, DeRosa now resides in Bartlett.

mates during the winter, DeRosa has spent most of his early career working and living in the extreme cold. Prior to serving as the Outreach Coordinator for the Observatory, he spent three years on the summit of Mount Washington recording winds in excess of 100 mph and temperatures as low as -45 F. Deciding this wasn’t quite cold enough, he then served as chief weather observer for the United States Antarctic Program at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. His first deployment was for 15 months in 2005/2006 and then again from October 2007 through Febru-

ary 2008. During his nearly two years at the South Pole, he saw the temperature dip to -108 F, with a wind chill of -160 F. What’s it like to live and work in extreme cold? What does the job of chief weather observer involve? All are invited to come and hear about DeRosa’s adventures in extreme environments, both on Mount Washington and at the South Pole. The event is free to the public with donations greatly appreciated. Refreshments will be served as well. For more information call the Library at 356-2961 or visit

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Curiosity is therapeutic to you; you cure your doldrums by diving into new fields. You are apt to delve into esoteric subjects off the beaten path of your day-today business. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know better than to try to be reasonable when one of your passionate whims takes hold. Creative impulses have led you to much more interesting places than any accurate road map ever could have. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You look forward to spending time with a certain someone. Your interaction is becoming an important part of your day. You sense there’s something valuable in every exchange. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have no intention of keeping your excellent taste to yourself. You’ll express yourself and let your style be known. Someone may imitate you, which is the highest form of flattery. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your mood can be as changeable as the sea, though only a fellow Pisces would be able to tell, because you’re so good at hiding the way you’re really feeling. This evening there won’t be any reason to hide. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 7). You’ll get bored of always seeing exactly where you’re headed. The path will wind, and you’ll enjoy the adventurous ride in this. A handsome paycheck comes this month. You’ll find February’s new alliance both pleasing and motivating. March and April bring good fortune to your family that will eventually rub off on you. Sagittarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 22, 49 and 19.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you were younger, you would have fits of fatalism in which you started feeling that things would never go your way again. Now you’re optimistic, and your faith in the possibilities will increase daily. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll deal with information well. You’ll glean what is essential to you and move on, letting what you have learned filter down on its own into your subconscious, where it finds a niche and begins to grow roots. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The means to travel may not be available now, but you can still travel with your mind through books, movies and your own fantasies. A journey through your own imagination will bring you the most luck. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are committed to turning whatever happens to you into something positive. And what already seems pretty good will be even better when you go forward with this intention. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just as need and want are not the same things, need and love are entirely different realities, as well. When you want a person but don’t need that person, the relationship will be more functional and loving. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll drop everything to help someone. Your love makes it easy for you to think of the other person’s needs without worrying about what you’ll get out of the deal. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The stressors in your life will come to bear on your ability to resist temptation. The best way to stick to your plans for yourself is to reduce your stress through exercise and/or meditation.

Yesterday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 7, 2012— Page 29

Today is Saturday, Jan. 7, the seventh day of 2012. There are 359 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 7, 1942, the Japanese siege of Bataan began during World War II. (The fall of Bataan three months later was followed by the notorious Death March.) On this date: In 1608, an accidental fire devastated the Jamestown settlement in the Virginia Colony. In 1610, astronomer Galileo Galilei began observing three of Jupiter’s moons (he spotted a fourth moon almost a week later). In 1789, the first U.S. presidential election was held. Americans voted for electors who, a month later, chose George Washington to be the nation’s first president. In 1800, the 13th president of the United States, Millard Fillmore, was born in Summerhill, N.Y. In 1894, one of the earliest motion picture experiments took place at the Thomas Edison studio in West Orange, N.J., as Fred Ott was filmed taking a pinch of snuff and sneezing. In 1912, dark-humored cartoonist Charles Addams was born in Westfield, N.J. In 1927, commercial transatlantic telephone service was inaugurated between New York and London. In 1949, George C. Marshall resigned as U.S. Secretary of State; President Harry S. Truman chose Dean Acheson to succeed him. In 1972, Lewis F. Powell, Jr. and William H. Rehnquist were sworn in as the 99th and 100th members of the U.S. Supreme Court. An Iberia Caravelle jetliner crashed into a mountain while on approach to Ibiza Airport in Spain, killing all 104 people on board. In 1979, Vietnamese forces captured the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, overthrowing the Khmer Rouge government. In 1989, Emperor Hirohito of Japan died in Tokyo at age 87; he was succeeded by his son, Crown Prince Akihito. In 2006, Jill Carroll, a freelance journalist for The Christian Science Monitor, was kidnapped and her translator shot dead in Baghdad. (Carroll was freed almost three months later.) One year ago: A package addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano ignited at a Washington postal facility, a day after fiery packages sent to Maryland’s governor and state transportation secretary burned the fingers of workers who opened them. Today’s Birthdays: Author William Peter Blatty is 84. Country singer Jack Greene is 82. Pop musician Paul Revere is 74. Singer Kenny Loggins is 64. Singer-songwriter Marshall Chapman is 63. Actress Erin Gray is 62. Actor Sammo Hung is 60. Actor David Caruso is 56. Katie Couric is 55. Country singer David Lee Murphy is 53. Rock musician Kathy Valentine (The GoGo’s) is 53. Actor David Marciano is 52. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., is 51. Actress Hallie Todd is 50. Actor Nicolas Cage is 48. Singer-songwriter John Ondrasik (Five for Fighting) is 47. Actor Doug E. Doug is 42. Actor Kevin Rahm is 41. Actor Jeremy Renner is 41. Country singer-musician John Rich is 38. Actor Dustin Diamond is 35. Actor Robert Ri’chard is 29. Actress Lyndsy Fonseca is 25.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: A few days ago, my mom told me that if it wasn’t for me, she and my dad would be divorced. She also said that the last few years with my dad have been terrible. I feel so guilty about this, knowing that I’m the reason my parents are unhappy. I barely slept the night my mom told me this, but actually, it all makes sense.

However, if there is no one else, clip this letter, show it to your mother and tell her you wrote it. DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old woman with a problem I’m not sure how to solve. I am 30 pounds overweight (I have been heavyset my whole life). My mom and I have been walking together for years, talking and enjoying each other’s company as we go. For a while, we were both losing weight consistently as a result of our walks. But since my parents’ divorce three years ago, Mom has had to work full-time and isn’t able to walk with me as often. I want to continue walking to lose weight so I can be healthier and feel better about myself. But I feel I will be be-

traying my mom by not including her. Walking together has been our tradition, so I don’t know how she’ll feel if I continue to walk without her. What should I do? -- STEPPING LIGHTLY DEAR STEPPING LIGHTLY: Get out there and continue walking -- with headphones or with friends. Exercise with your mother on weekends if she’s available, and encourage her to do some walking on her own during her lunch hour. The only thing you should NOT do is quit walking because you feel guilty that you and your mother are now on different “paths.” DEAR ABBY: I have been married to “Daryl” for 10 years. He has never really hit the mark in what I want -- someone who is mature, stable, predictable and has an appropriate perspective on life. Daryl depends on the outside world to make him feel good about himself, and when that doesn’t happen, he drinks and smokes pot. I love exercise and the outdoors. He doesn’t like hiking. In fact, he’s afraid to challenge himself physically in even the smallest way. I have to decide whether to stay and “make do” or move on. How do I make that choice? (I’m over 40.) -- LOOKING FOR BETTER, LAGUNA HILLS, CALIF. DEAR LOOKING: Tell your husband what you have told me. That will give him a chance to shape up and at least try to be more of the man you thought you married. (I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt and not assuming you felt you were compromising when you accepted his proposal.) Daryl deserves to spend his life with someone who values him for who he is, not someone who feels she’s “making do.” If it doesn’t work, then you should BOTH move on.

Albany Town Column

Mary Leavitt 447-1710/Dorothy Solomon 447-1199

World Fellowship is celebrating 70 years The selectmen’s meeting on Wednesday dealt with issues regarding the purchase of the Kennett property. The Trust for Public Land will be closing on the property sometime shortly. Albany still awaits the grant money that has been approved. There is $175,000 in escrow for the purchase of this land. Should there be any shortfall in the amount needed to cover Albany’s portion of the purchase, the TPL will outlay the money until the first timber cut. The proceeds from this cut should cover those costs. The Selectmen are deciding whether the Land Governance Board should be phased out and become a Conservation Commission. As a Conservation Commission it would have more power and authority. However, the Albany Conservation Commission has not operated in years and one of the questions that the selectmen are considering are changing the commission’s format to a five member board from its present three members. Also, at this time the commission is appointed by the selectmen.

What is being considered is whether to have it be an elected body. The clerk’s office will be open on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. Primary Day: Voting takes place from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at town hall on Tuesday, Jan. 10, for both the Democratic and Republican Primaries. Tin Mountain: On Thursday at 7 p.m. discover the mysteries of mycorrhizae (fungi) that live in the soil and are essential for the normal growth of 95 percent of all green plants. This will be presented by Dr. Michael Cline. Gibson Center: No lunch will be served on Tuesday, Jan. 10, but there will be delivery of Meals on Wheels. On Thursday, part 11 of "Fiddler on the Roof" will be shown at 12:30 p.m. World Fellowship is celebrating 70 years here in Albany. There are many repairs needed to the buildings and property. They are seeking the public’s help. If you can contribute, send what you can to: World Fellowship Center, Box 2280, Albany, NH, 03818-2280. A word to the wise from Camille

Rose. Be careful out there. There may be black ice you’re not aware of. Jack fell on the ice last week and sustained a slight concussion. He had four surgical staples put in his head that will come out shortly. Nonetheless, they do not expect this mishap to deter them from their plans. Jack attended the “kick-off ” for the Carroll County Transit Blue Loon Bus Service on Tuesday. There were about 50 people there to learn about the system and take a ride on the new bus. You might have seen a picture of people riding the bus in the Wednesday Sun. Other Albany people at the kick off were Josephine Howland, Stan and me. And, Albany has the distinction of having one of the bus drivers hailing from our town. John Cowls was hired to drive one of the buses on the new deviated routes. Here’s a real steal. You can ride the bus for free until Jan. 13 to get used to the new system. So grab a friend and take a ride to North Conway or Wolfeboro or even Laconia. Now that’s a great New Year’s present. And, here’s another gift. I won the

raffle for a free one week pass to ride the bus. It’s worth $20. I’m donating this to any Albany resident who would like to use it. Go to town hall and see Kathy if you can use this pass. There is no date on the pass, but it must be used in the same week. Where was my head when I wrote last month about the lovely Red Hat Honeybee’s Christmas luncheon? I wrote about the four Albany ladies that attended, but completely left out our Honeybee leader, Camille Rose. Not only did Camille do a great job in organizing the event, but she solicited Jack to play “Santa” and deliver the Christmas present to each of us. We all received a lovely plant for the holidays. Stan and I had a lovely New Year’s dinner at the Darby Field Inn. We toasted the New Year with a glass of champagne and enjoyed our meal. We were still home in time to watch the ball come down at Times Square. The 2012 weather is starting out fairly calm. Take advantage and get out and enjoy yourselves. Have a great week.

Gibson Gleanings

Barbara Ray

Carl Owen presents Met art video tour series in activity room Monday Well, we are now into a new year and I’d like to start things off right so let me begin by clarifying something. Several people complimented me on my excellent writeup in the Gleanings for New Years. I was pleased to hear they had enjoyed the piece but the fact was I was off from work that day and never wrote an article. I checked the paper and found the Gleanings. Sure enough, there was my byline. With a bit of sleuthing on my part, I discovered the true author – our own Jill Reynolds. It really was a beautifully written piece so let me just say great job Jill. You can fill in for me anytime. With Christmas and New Years behind us, you might think things were going to slow down. No way. A group will be heading up to Jackson on Monday for the annual Wentworth Ice Sculpture competition while other folks will join Carl Owen in the activity room for his Met art video series. Belly dance classes have resumed and the bowling team will start up again on Jan. 23. You can also sign up for the Portland Pirates game on Jan. 18 or the snow sculpture exhibit on Jan. 24. There’s much more going on over the next few weeks so be sure to check the calendar of events below. Have a great week and a very Happy New Year. Monday, Jan. 9: Chair exercise class begins at 10:30 a.m. in the activity room. Board the bus at 11:20 a.m. for the Wentworth Ice Sculpture. The Met art video tours with Carl Owen begin at 12:30 p.m. in the activity room. Tuesday, Jan. 10: Strength, balance and stretch classes start at 10 a.m. in the activity room.

Financial resolutions for 2012 Financial security, the ability to meet day-to-day expenses while saving and investing for tomorrow, is a lifelong goal for most individuals and families. UNH Cooperative Extension has developed five financial resolutions to help you gain control of your finances and work toward achieving financial security in 2012. These have been developed as part of UNH Cooperative Extension’s "Making Money Work for You" financial management series developed in collabo-

ration with the More Than Wheels program. I resolve to watch where and how I spend my money. This may sound simple but it takes discipline, patience and determination to track every cent in and out but the end result is well worth it. As noted by my colleague, Karen Blass, ask yourself if the expenditures for the week or month are in line with your fundamental values, identify if you are spending money on what you need versus what you want, and

which purchases bring a sense of fulfillment in your life versus that sinking feeling when you know you have “wasted your money.” I resolve to find ways to cut personal or household expenses every week. Sometimes managing money is not about increasing your income rather it is about finding ways to trim expenses. Think about the purchases you have made over the past week. Did you really need the items or where they bought just because they were a “bargain?”

Effingham Town Column

Purchasing items on sale doesn’t necessarily mean it is a bargain if you don’t need it or it doesn’t help you achieve one of your goals. I resolve to pay bills on time and communicate with creditors before a payment is late. People who fall behind in their payments often face ever-increasing pressure to pay. The last thing someone who is finally strapped needs is for collection agencies to hound them for money. Work with your creditors see RESOLUTIONS page 40

Polling location at the Effingham Elementary School Notice to all voters: Effingham’s polling place will no longer be the municipal offices. If you want to cast your vote you need to show up at the Effingham Elementary School. The voting booths will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Jan. 10. Reasons relating to requirements set up by one agency or another at both federal and state levels makes using the municipal offices impossible: all that’s true but it really could get a little crowded in there when voter turnout was good, particularly if you had to work there all day. So, although a change required from on high it is probably a pretty good idea. The budget committee will be holding its public hearing on the 2012 budget Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. in the municipal offices on School

Street. Attendance at monthly budget meetings has shown a very careful consideration of pretty much every dollar requested. There really isn’t any waste in the town’s operation, costs do go up and revenue has either slowed a bit or diminished, thus the town’s portion of your tax bill has gone up. Should this fact have you upset or concerned the meeting on Feb. 13. will be your best chance to ‘officially’ register your views. While you are entirely welcome to simply let on that you think $5.92 per thousand is too much your reporter can assure that each and every one of the B.C. members feels the same way and has come within scrimping distance of every penny requested by each town department in everyone’s attempt to keep

the taxes down. It is impossible to see where any substantial savings may come from other than through a public review of existing municipal service levels. Come prepared to discuss this issue. Times are tight, people are hurting, taxes are going up and we all need a few good minds to get together and plan a bit of future. The selectman’s last moment appeal for 30k (+/-) of federal grant money to purchase a new wood pellet heating system for the municipal offices has been successful. A date of Jan. 17 at 7 p.m. at the municipal offices has been set to give residents an opportunity to both learn and comment on the procedure to acquire a heating plant, the process and requirements of installation and the responsibili-

ties of operating and maintaining the new system. There is absolutely no option to Effingham other than acquiring a new heating system. The existing furnace is kaput. We can purchase a new oil or gas furnace with over twenty thousand dollars of property tax money and buy fuel from huge energy firms or get a "free" wood pellet furnace paid for with federal tax money and its attached strings and buy locally produced wood pellets thus applying a tapered threaded fastening device to big oil. Seems simple enough doesn’t it, but like all things there is way more to it: where’s this go, can you dig here, who hauls the ashes, backup heat, what strings; the list does go on. So plan on attending the meeting on Jan. 17.

The Freedom Library will exhibit the works Nan White and Cindy Spencer during January, February THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 7, 2012— Page 39

FREEDOM — The Freedom Library will exhibit the works Nan White and Cindy Spencer during January and February. Nan White and Cindy Spencer began their friendship through their mutual interest in art. Both were excited about this show, as it is their first duo exhibition. White passed away on Dec. 26, 2011, and was determined to have some new things framed for this exhibition. White began painting in watercolor in the early 1950s when she took lessons from Lewis Hodgkins. She was then in her late 30s. Although she was only able to work with Hodgkins for about three years, Lew would her remain her most influential teacher. She recalls her first art show in North Conway in 1962 which was held on the lawn of the Eastern Slope Inn. White was known for her landscapes which she decribed simply as “unfussy,” and won many local honors for her work. Much of what she learned from Lew she brought to the Mount Washing-

ton Valley Arts Association’s Friday Painter’s Group. Nan White and Dorothy DeMark started by painting together informally in the 1970s. Gradually they expanded to include others and to set a regular plein air painting schedule. White continued Hodgkin's tradition of having artists meet and paint in her home for many years. Today, Friday Painter's Group meets year round with Cindy Spencer currently at the helm. For more information visit www.mwvarts. org. Friday Painter's, along with Nan White’s art, is White’s legacy. White was always a proud and active member of the Mount Washington Valley Arts Association. In January of 2010 she was honored to be Mount Washington Valley Arts Association “Artist of the Month” in January 2010, approximately 30 of her paintings being exhibited. All sale proceeds benefitted the association. At the July 2011 Art in the Park, she won first prize with her painting “Tall Trees.” In recent years, Spencer has been instrumental

in exhibiting White’s work and is currently a trustee of that organization. Cindy Spencer began painting in oils as a youngster. When she moved to the valley in 1979 she was impressed by the wonderful watercolors of local artists. She began painting with Friday Painters and met Nan White. Spencer relished the opportunities to paint with and to learn from White. Nan White insisted that she was not a teacher, but had a quiet way of questioning that was, over time, helpful. “What are you trying to say?” “Where is the light coming from?” White rarely taught by showing how she did something — she usually referred to her beloved books. “Notice how Homer used red here. Notice Sargent’s ..." More of Cindy’s work can be seen on her website www., at most Mount Washington Valley Art shows, and at the Gallery 302 in Bridgton, Maine. Arrangements can be made to see Nan White’s artwork through the Mount Washington Valley Art Association.

Nan White and Cindy Spencer developed a friendship that extended far beyond their art. They would often meet in Nan’s living room late on Friday afternoon for “Fridays with Nan.” Sometimes they had artwork to share and sometimes not. Although White was an independent woman, she found herself in need of assistance in her mid and later 90s and Spencer visited more frequently. Spencer helped White move from her Grove Street home and adapt to nursing home life. Spencer was often seen bringing in her art for White’s latest critiques. Both women have found some of their happiest times with a paintbrush in hand and in the company of each other. Their work can be seen Jan. 3 to Feb. 29 at the Freedom Public Library. Library hours are Tuesdays, 2-7 p.m.; Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; Thursdays, 2-7 p.m.; Fridays, noon-5 p.m., Saturdays, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. For more information contact the library at 5395176 or

to resolve the issue. Late payments to creditors also affects your credit score. Credit scores in turn can affect interest rates on future credit purchases. Read the guidelines for your credit cards. Some credit card companies increase the interest rate when payments are late. I resolve to pay myself first and save some money every week. Saving money can help you with emergencies and periodic expenses such as car registration, holidays, property taxes and medical deductibles and co-pays. Just because you have money in your checkbook doesn’t mean you can freely spend it. Ask yourself what other bills may be coming in a few months that you need to save for. In addition, save money for retirement. You can take out a loan for a car, education or home but you cannot take a loan on your retirement. I resolve to compare cost and value of small and large purchases before making a spending decision. Investigate the cost of items you need at various local locations. Just because you can get something cheaper in Newington doesn’t mean it was a bargain if you consider the time out of your schedule and the cost of gas to get there. Check your local library for Consumer Reports and do comparisons before making a major purchase. Take the time to be a wise consumer and get the most for your hard earned money.

Petition for Approval of the Transfer of Real Estate Order Nisi Granting Petition O R D E R N O. 25,309 December 29, 2011 I. BACKGROUND Pennichuck East Utility, Inc. (PEU) is a regulated public water utility serving nearly 7,000 customers in a number of New Hampshire municipalities. On October 4, 2011, PEU filed a petition requesting authority pursuant to RSA 374:30 to transfer three parcels of land associated with its Birch Hill water system in the Town of Conway to the New Hampshire Institute of Agriculture and Forestry (NHIAF). The three properties, totaling 55 acres, are identified as lots 231-106, 231-147 and 231-148 and are located between West Side Road and the Saco River opposite the Birch Hill development. The petition was accompanied by the prefiled testimony of Donald L. Ware, President of PEU, and other supporting documents. The petition and subsequent docket filings, other than information for which confidential treatment is requested of or granted by the Commission, is posted to the Commission’s website at The lots were originally acquired by PEU’s sister utility, Pittsfield Aqueduct Company (PAC), in 2007 and 2008 in anticipation of installing a new groundwater supply for the Birch Hill system. PAC subsequently installed an interconnection with North Conway Water Precinct (NCWP) to obtain a source of supply for the development. The interconnection runs across two of the three lots. All three lots were later transferred to PEU as part of the transfer of Birch Hill and other water systems from PAC to PEU in docket DW 09-051. See, Pittsfield Aqueduct Company, Inc., Order No. 25,051, 94 NH PUC 701 (2009). PEU will retain a 25-foot easement along the interconnection route as required for access and maintenance purposes, but otherwise no longer requires the lots for water supply purposes. PEU proposes to sell the three properties to the NHIAF, a non-profit organization located in Conway, that will purchase the lots for $65,000 in accordance with a P&S agreement provided in the filing. NHIAF offered the highest price for the combined parcels in response to PEU’s marketing of the properties. The lands are located in the Saco River floodplain and as such are subject to certain limitations imposed by Conway zoning ordinances. NHIAF has leased the largest parcel for agricultural purposes for the past two years and, if the proposed sale is consummated, would continue to use the three properties for its agricultural and educational mission, thus satisfying the zoning requirements. The proposed sale price of $65,000 for the three parcels is slightly less than the $71,248.51 originally paid for the properties, with the difference reflecting the value of the water main easement being retained by PEU. Endorsement of the sale by the City of Nashua, required by its pending merger agreement with Pennichuck Corporation, was provided in a Resolution included in PEU’s filing. On December 9, 2011, Staff filed a letter recommending the Commission approve PEU’s request. Staff stated that it had reviewed PEU’s filing and had conducted discovery, which is attached to its recommendation. Staff noted that the water supply agreement with NCWP has a term of 20 years and is further extendable by agreement of both parties, thus providing assurance of an adequate supply. Staff also noted that the proposed accounting treatment of the transfer includes applying the gain on the sale to the current balance of the Birch Hill Capital Recovery Surcharge and is more fully detailed in the discovery responses. II. COMMISSION ANALYSIS Pursuant to RSA 374:30, “[a]ny public utility may transfer or lease its franchise, works or system, or any part of any such franchise, works, or system … when the commission shall find that it will be for the public good and shall make an order assenting thereto, but not otherwise.” In this instance the parcels proposed to be transferred are no longer needed for water supply purposes, and their sale will result in elimination of the associated property tax payments by PEU. PEU is selling the parcels to the highest bidder, the terms of the proposed sale appear reasonable, and transfer of the parcels will have no impact on PEU’s continued ability to operate the Birch Hill water system. Accordingly, we find the transfer of the three properties, subject to retaining an easement across two of the lots as described, is for the public good and approve it. While there is no indication of any opposition to the proposed sale, we will nonetheless approve PEU’s petition on a nisi basis in order to ensure that all interested parties receive notice of the proposed transfer and have an opportunity to request a hearing. Based upon the foregoing, it is hereby ORDERED NISI, that the sale by Pennichuck East Utility, Inc. of lots 231-106, 231147 and 231-148 in the Town of Conway to NHIAF is approved , subject to the effective date below; and it is FURTHER ORDERED, that PEU shall cause a copy of this Order Nisi to be mailed by first class mail to the Conway Town Clerk as well as published once in a statewide newspaper of general circulation or of circulation in those portions of the state where operations are conducted, such mailing and publication to be no later than January 8, 2012 and to be documented by affidavit filed with this office on or before January 29, 2012; and it is FURTHER ORDERED, that all persons interested in responding to this Order Nisi be notified that they may submit their comments or file a written request for a hearing which states the reason and basis for a hearing no later than January 15, 2012 for the Commission’s consideration; and it is FURTHER ORDERED, that any party interested in responding to such comments or request for hearing shall do so no later than January 22, 2012; and it is FURTHER ORDERED, that this Order Nisi shall be effective January 29, 2012, unless PEU fails to satisfy the publication obligation set forth above or the Commission provides otherwise in a supplemental order issued prior to the effective date. By order of the Public Utilities Commission of New Hampshire this twenty-ninth day of December, 2011. Thomas B. Getz Clifton C. Below Amy L. Ignatius Chairman Commissioner Commissioner Attested by:

If only I’d known... BY JASON ROBIE If I knew then what I know now! There are countless experiences that we all go through which make us the educated, knowledgeable and mature people we are today. OK — I had to work on writing that with a straight face! But we have all certainly learned a lot along the roads we’ve traveled. In the world of real estate, specifically in the world of listing one’s home for sale, there are many of these lessons as well. The job of a good agent is to impart that wisdom onto their clients and, ideally, make the sales process as smooth as possible. I’d like to offer a few nuggets that might help you along the way. 1. Allow for financial concessions. One of the best ways for a deal to go south is to allow the seller to get to their bottom line price when the contract was accepted (but before the inspections). Inevitably the buyers will want to have a few items fixed or replaced. If the seller is already at their “rock bottom” price, they will be less likely to budge from that number and potentially let the buyer walk away. At the very beginning of the listing, and definitely during the price negotiations, keep in mind the cost of repairs that might be required by the buyers after the inspections and use that buffer as your actual “rock bottom." 2. Continually estimate the closing costs. It's pretty discouraging to work a couple of months with documents, the title company, inspectors, appraisers and banks only to have your seller gasp at the final closing costs. An up-front itemization of closing costs based on the expected selling price is not just helpful, but absolutely necessary. Then, if the negotiations have moved the final price around, do some further estimating. Being over-prepared is never a bad thing and this should help eliminate or ease the sticker shock at the closing table. 3. Determine exactly what is going with you. Typically, the buyer will do a walk-through of the property just before closing to inspect the home. They want to be sure it's reasonably clean and in the expected and agreed upon condition. To avoid any last-minute problems, make sure the sellers have itemized the materials that are staying with the house. When going through your home, just make sure everyone agrees (in writing) on anything they would want to take that a reasonable buyer would expect to remain, including light fixtures, doors, etc. This is a great place to avoid any assumptions. We have seen deals nearly fall apart over a 50-dollar mirror. If it is in writing, there are far fewer questions. 4. The property disclosure is not a sales brochure. In New Hampshire we have a requirement to disclose property condition information. This is not the place for sellers to be thinking of what will look good to a potential buyer. Facts are facts. Sellers should be honest and detailed in their disclosure of problems with the home. If they know about it, disclose it. If they're not sure, they can say that too. When an inspector uncovers an obvious problem that they should have known about but didn't disclose, the buyers are going to be thinking, "What else didn't they tell me?" see ROBIE page 43

Live in style by the Saco This week’s Home of the Week is a three-bedroom contemporary located on Rebecca Lane in Conway.

CONWAY — This is a truly distinctive home with enviable views of the Saco River and stairs down to a private beach. An open floor plan creates a graceful flow. The living room has a beautiful stone fireplace, hardwood floors and cathedral ceiling. Granite counters and custom cabinets lend a touch of elegance and warmth to the kitchen and dining area. And the sunroom overlooks the river. The master bedroom has a tiled bath, which includes a Jacuzzi tub and a shower. Sliders lead out to a deck, with a beautiful view overlooking the Saco. Two more bedrooms can accommodate family and/or guests. And, there's a den for comfort and privacy. This 10-room home also features a wet bar and a three-season room. Peaceful grounds and easy-to-maintain landscaping create an enjoyable atmosphere. A two-car garage will keep the snow off your cars in the winter, and ward off the hot sun during summer. A shed provides a tidy place to keep all the tools and outdoor equipment. And, a huge, stepoff deck makes for a fantastic area to entertain, barbecue and enjoy a soak in the hot tub. This home was designed for comfort and fun. Quality construction, attention to detail and numerous upgrades can be found in just about every nook and cranny of this interesting, contemporary residence. With 200 feet on the beautiful Saco see HOME page 43

There is a stone fireplace in the living room.

A huge deck is great for barbecuing — and hot tubbing.

Stabilizing housing market is key to economic recovery WASHINGTON — Stabilizing and restoring the health of the housing market is critical to a broader economic recovery, according to a white paper released yesterday by the Federal Reserve Board. Many of the issues and recommendations outlined in the paper support key principles established by the National Association of Realtors to help revitalize the housing industry and economy. The white paper, "The U.S. Housing Market: Current Conditions and Policy Considerations," calls for increased lending to creditworthy home buyers and more loan modifi-

5. The role of the agent is to provide a smooth and happy closing. But don’t hold your breath! As we talked about before, nearly all real estate deals run into hiccups along the way. One of my favorite brokers told me, the goal is to overcome these issues “behind the scenes” and keep the deal moving forward to closing. Sometimes it's things you can take care of, and sometimes they're beyond your ability to control or correct. Sellers should be prepared for annoyances and even deal-killers. No deal is guaranteed until the ink is dry at closing. The role of an agent is to facilitate a solution or find someone who can. An educated client is a happy client. Setting the correct expectations from the beginning can help a ton. 6. Be out of the property on time.

Laws and customs in differing areas will determine seller move-out and buyer move-in deadlines. It is important for sellers to understand when they need to be completely out of the home and surrender the keys. Tenants can throw a bit of a wrench in the works, but if they are kept in the loop throughout the transaction, there will be fewer problems for sure. You can imagine the situation of the excited buyer’s (owner’s) moving van showing up and the sellers are still removing their furniture. A little information goes a long way and keeping all parties informed will certainly help smooth things over through the whole transaction.

RECOVERY from page 43

owner of Veissi & Associates Inc., in Miami. “Improving access to affordable mortgage financing for qualified home buyers and investors and aggressively pursuing more loan modifications and short sales is necessary to help re-energize the housing market and spur an economic recovery.” The pendulum on mortgage credit has swung too far following the housing downturn. According to the 2011 National Association of Realtors' Member Profile, 34 percent of Realtors reported that the most important factor in limiting their clients’ ability to buy a home was difficulty in obtaining a mortgage. While NAR supports responsible and strong underwriting standards, unnecessarily tight credit restrictions are keeping many qualified home buyers from purchasing homes, which could help absorb excess inventories of homes in foreclosure. “Creditworthy consumers continue to have difficulties securing affordable financing despite their proven ability to afford the monthly payments,” said Veissi. “Expanding financing opportunities to qualified buyers could help reduce distressed property inventories, minimize the negative impact those homes have on local markets and restore vibrant housing markets and neighborhoods.” To prevent further foreclosure inventory increases, National Association of Realtors also urges lenders to take more aggressive steps to modify loans and keep struggling families in their homes. Significantly reducing monthly mortgage payments will help more families remain current on their mortgage and allow them

to remain in their home, reducing the impact of foreclosures on local home prices. For homeowners who are unable to meet their mortgage obligations, NAR has urged lenders and servicers to quickly approve reasonable short sale offers so these people can avoid foreclosure. The short sale process can be time-consuming and inefficient, and many would-be buyers end up walking away from the transaction. “Loan modifications and short sales help stabilize home values and neighborhoods, and limit the losses incurred by lenders, the federal government and taxpayers, which is good for everyone,” said Veissi. The Fed paper also addresses converting foreclosed properties into affordable rentals. National Association of Realtors supports reducing the barriers that prevent owner-occupants and small investors from accessing financing, such as opening the Federal Housing Administration 203(k) program to investors. National Association of Realtors also believes these efforts are best made by local entities that understand the challenges of the local community and will respond to renters’ needs. In addition, National Association of Realtors is concerned about proposed bulk sales of distressed properties and believes that every effort should be made increase liquidity for consumers and small investors since bulk sales will likely result in greater losses for taxpayers and have a more negative impact on housing values. The National Association of Realtors is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Existing-home sale up in November WASHINGTON — Existing-home sales rose again in November and remain above a year ago, according to the National Association of Realtors. Also were periodic benchmark revisions with downward adjustments to sales and inventory data since 2007, led by a decline in for-sale-by-owners. Although rebenchmarking resulted in lower adjustments to several years of home sales data, the month-to-month characterization of market conditions did not change. There are no changes to home prices or month’s supply. The latest monthly data shows total existing-home sales1, which are completed transactions that include singlefamily, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, increased 4.0 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.42 million in November from 4.25 million in October, and are 12.2 percent above the 3.94 million-unit pace in November 2010. Lawrence Yun, National Association of Realtors’ chief economist, said more people are taking advantage of the buyer’s market. “Sales reached the highest mark in 10 months and are 34 percent above the cyclical low point in mid-2010 — a genuine sustained sales recovery appears to be developing,” he said. “We’ve seen healthy gains in contract activity, so it looks like more people are realizing the great opportunity that exists in today’s market for buyers with long-term plans.” According to Freddie Mac, the national average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage fell to a record low 3.99 percent in November from 4.07 percent in October; the rate was 4.30 percent in November 2010; records date back to 1971. National Association of Realtors president Moe Veissi, broker-owner of Veissi & Associates Inc., in Miami, said

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, January 7, 2012— Page 45

housing affordability conditions have set a new record high. “With record low mortgage interest rates and bargain home prices, NAR’s housing affordability index shows that a median-income family can easily afford a median-priced home,” he said. “With consumer price inflation rising by more than 3 percent this year, consumers are looking to lock-in steady payments by taking out long-term fixed-rate mortgages. However, the problem remains that some financially qualified families who are willing to stay well within their means are being denied the opportunity to buy in today’s market by the overly restrictive mortgage underwriting situation,” Veissi said. An elevated level of contract failures continues to hold back a broader sales recovery. Contract failures2 were reported by 33 percent of National Association of Realtors members in November, unchanged from October but notably above a year ago when it was 9 percent. Contract failures are cancellations caused by declined mortgage applications, failures in loan underwriting from appraised values coming in below the negotiated price, or other problems including lower conforming mortgage loan limits, home inspections and employment losses. Also released are benchmark revisions3 to historic existing-home sales. The 2010 benchmark shows there were 4,190,000 existing-home sales last year, a 14.6 percent revision from the previously projected 4,908,000 sales. For the total period of 2007 through 2010, sales and inventory were downwardly revised by 14.3 percent. The revisions are expected to have a minor impact on future revisions to Gross Domestic Product.

WASHINGTON — The National Association of Home Builders Concurs with a finding by the Federal Reserve that excessively tight mortgage lending standards are hampering a housing and economic recovery. “The Federal Reserve’s report to Congress confirms what we have been saying for some time: That extraordinarily tight credit conditions are preventing creditworthy borrowers from obtaining home loans and this is harming the housing market and the broader economy,” said National Association of Home Builders' chairman Bob Nielsen, a home builder from Reno, Nev. Nielsen added that the lack of credit extends to housing construction loans as well, which is crippling the housing industry and preventing construction of new homes in markets that need and want them. “In scores of markets across the country that are exhibiting signs of job growth and where the inventory of new homes is nearly exhausted, builders should be hiring workers to break ground on new housing developments,” he said. In its message to Congress, the Fed said that “restoring the health of the housing market is a necessary part of a broader strategy for economic recovery.” Housing can act as a job catalyst if regulators and lending institutions return to prudent underwriting standards that do not exclude creditworthy borrowers and if they move to restore the flow of credit to viable home building projects. In normal times, housing accounts for more than 17 percent of the nation’s economic output. Constructing 100 new homes creates more than 300 full-time jobs, $23.1 million in wage and business income and $8.9 million in federal, state and local tax revenue. With cash-strapped municipalities across the land desperately searching for new revenue sources, home building can increase the property tax base that supports local schools and communities. “Removing the obstacles limiting access to mortgage credit and enabling builders to obtain construction loans to build in markets where demand is firming is imperative to get housing back on track, to put our nation back to work and to keep the economy moving forward,” said Nielsen.
