BOSTON (NY Times) — This city, home to the nation’s first large public library, has a new and somewhat grittier venue for reading. Housed in a green military tent, the library at the Occupy Boston encampment is overflowing with scholarly tomes that have no due dates or late fees. The growing collection includes more than 500 books, sorted by genre — consumerism, gender, activism/organizing — and overseen by a bookstore owner and a number of librarians supporting the movement, including some from a group calling themselves the Radical Reference librarians. It has a simple checkout system, an expanding archive of Occupy Boston’s meeting notes and proposals and a nascent program of speakers and writing workshops. John Ford, 30, who owns the Metacomet alternative bookstore in Plymouth, Mass., said the library was intended to help protesters learn about systems they find frustrating and explore possible alternatives. “I hope, at the very least, it just makes people more inclined to be thoughtful about what they’re doing here,” said Ford

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — President Obama said Friday that the last American soldier would leave Iraq by the end of the year, bringing to an end a nearly nine-year military engagement that cost the lives of 4,400 troops and more than $1 trillion, divided

the American public, and came to define America’s role in the world. Obama said that as of Jan. 1, 2012, the United States and Iraq would begin “a normal relationship between two sovereign nations, and equal partnership based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”

In a videoconference on Friday morning with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, Obama told him of the administration’s decision, which grows out of an inability of the United States and Iraq to come to an agreement on leaving a few thousand military trainers in the country.

Libyan leaders differ over Qaddafi burial MISURATA, Libya (NY Times) — Euphoria in Libya over the death of Col. Muammar elQaddafi was tempered on Friday by frictions and confusion over where and when to bury the former strongman, as well as rising pressure from abroad for a fuller accounting by the interim government of the final moments before his violent, messy demise while in the custody of the fighters who captured him. The United Nations and Amnesty International called for a thorough investigation into precisely how Colonel Qaddafi -- shown in viral


A person who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.” —Mark Twain

Internet cell-phone videos bleeding and heaving as screaming fighters dragged him from a drain pipe hideout in Surt — wound up dead, with multiple bullet wounds in his head and torso. One of those videos was receiving heightened scrutiny on Friday because it showed a conscious Colonel Qaddafi wiping blood off the left side of his face, revealing no bullet wound. Later videos of his corpse showed a bullet wound in the same spot — undercutting the interim government’s official explanation that he was accidentally killed during a shootout with Qaddafi loyalists.

Puerto Rico’s plan for natural gas pipeline has many critics

PORTUGUES, P.R. (NY Times) — It is his retirement refuge, a tiny house in the Central Mountain Chain, surrounded by banana and orange trees, coffee bushes and the melody of coquí frogs. “I like the peace and tranquillity after so much time spent working and sacrificing,” said Luis Rodriguez Cruz, 59, who bought his home, nestled in the center of the island, for $10,000 a few years ago, after a lifetime of factory work. “We came here for peace. Now we have to worry whether this thing will explode next to our house.” The pipeline, which has provoked demonstrations and widespread opposition over environmental and safety concerns, would run 92 miles from Peñuelas in the south, across the mountains to the island’s northern coast, then east to San Juan. For Gov. Luis G. Fortuño, who has made the pipeline a centerpiece of his first term, the project represents one of the island’s best attempts at revving up its flailing economy, by reducing stratospheric electricity costs.

There are an estimated 5,000 moose in New Hampshire. (TOM EASTMAN PHOTO)

A successful season so far for moose hunters BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BERLIN — New Hampshire Fish and Game reports that hunters are achieving a 57 percent success rate as of Thursday night for the nine-day permit only hunt, which got under way Oct. 15 and continues through 23. “As of last night, we were at a 57 percent success rate, which is pretty typical compared to other years. That count is down from last year, but last

year was perfect weather for moose hunting,” said Kristine Rines, N.H. Fish and Game moose biologist, in an interview from the state Berlin Fish Hatchery moose check-in station Friday afternoon. She said the statewide moose kill as of Thursday night was 71 cows and 160 bulls. The largest taken so far this season is a 930-pound bull, dressed weight, which alive would

Tele-Talk Why is it important for New Hampshire to hold on to its first-in-the-nation primary status? New Hampshire’s tradition of being the first state in the nation to hold a presidential primary is once again being challenged. In 1975, the first-in-the-nation status was even put into state law, requiring that the New Hampshire primary be held at least seven days “before similar elections that would challenge our traditional position,” says Secretary of State Bill Gardner. With other states moving their caucus and primary dates up, New Hampshire is now looking at the possibility of a December primary. Whatever the date, Gardner is determined to keep New Hampshire first. “For nearly 100 years, the New Hampshire first-in-the-nation presidential primary has had meaning and relevance to American politics,” Gardner said. “Ours is the first event where voters go into the privacy of the voting booth to make a choice for a candidate on the ballot. It tells the nation something about their support.” This week’s Tele-Talk: Why is it important for New Hampshire to hold on to its first-in-the-nation primary status?

The Rise and Fall of William Shirer It sat there on your parents' shelf, or maybe your grandparents', alongside the six volumes of Winston Churchill's chronicle of World War II and the 11 volumes of Will and Ariel Durant's "The Story of Civilization." It had two distinctions. One was the menacing swastika on the spine of the book. The other was that it was the only one of those 18 volumes that anyone in your family ever actually opened. It is William L. Shirer's "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," and more than a million people did more than buy it or open it. They read it. It may be, aside from the Bible, the biggest book ever read by a big audience, and that audience devoured it, discussed it and was shaped by it. A generation of Americans formed their view of the horrors of Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1945 from its pages or from elders or teachers who themselves read it and were molded by it. No other book of history in the last century — not Charles Beard on the Constitution, not C. Vann Woodward on the South, not Doris Kearns Goodwin on Roosevelt and Lincoln, nor David McCullough on Harry Truman and John Adams — remotely approaches its reach, influence and significance. That is a remarkable achievement, even more so because this work of history was undertaken by a journalist — one whose career flared and flamed out, one whose work was questioned if not pilloried, one who wrote the book because he needed the money, much as U.S. Grant wrote his remarkable personal memoirs to pay for his own funeral and assure the financial security of his wife and children. The six volumes of Churchill on World War II are a great read, better than you expect — all the better, in fact, because they are so one-sided and self-serving. I have no idea whether the Durants' civilization series is any good because I have never opened a single volume, even though it has rested on my shelf for more than three decades. But Shirer's volume is one of the great reading experiences, and now it has been reissued in a new edition commemorating the 50th anniversary of its selection for the National Book Award. Nowhere except between the covers of that book have so many read so much about, for example, the three Reichstag elections held within five months in 1932 — and much more. So important a cultural force was "Rise and Fall" that Time magazine listed it as one of the eight best nonfiction books written since 1923, when the magazine was founded. It was, as Ron Rosenbaum writes in an introduction prepared for the commemorative edition, "a kind of a leap from eyewitness war correspondent to archival historian." Shirer was, as Dean Acheson would say in a different context, present at the creation (though not at the destruction), but he sought, as Mr. Rosenbaum put it, to write like "the kind of historian, who, like Thucydides, had firsthand experience of war and then sought to adopt the analytic distance of the historian." That almost never works for journalists; piles of campaign books, forgotten weeks after they are

published, provide sad testimony to that. In fact, the only exceptions I can think of are Theodore H. White's "Making of the President" volumes for 1960 and 1964 (but not 1968 or 1972) and maybe "Ten Days that Shook the World," about the Russian Revolution, by John Reed, or "Scum of the Earth," about the fall of France, by Arthur Koestler. (Drop me a line if you can think of another one.) Like no other book of the period, Shirer's possesses the gravitas of the archives as well as the grit of the streets. Shirer himself had a rise and fall — a rise from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to the world stage, where he intersected with Hitler and Gandhi, representatives of the two extremes of 20th century history, and then a fall from grace when, as the original of the fabled "Murrow Boys" at CBS, he fell afoul of Edward R. Murrow and William S. Paley and fell into near penury, in part as a result of his name appearing on a list of media leftists. "To keep the family afloat, his only option was to dream up another book idea," Steve Wick wrote in "The Long Night," published earlier this year, a chronicle of Shirer's life covering Germany. The plan: Use captured German documents as the basis for an authoritative account of Hitler's ascent and decline. It won him a $10,000 advance from Simon and Schuster. No one thought Shirer would ever earn back that advance. Including Shirer: "I began to see that soon I would be back to where I had been for the last dozen years: struggling to make ends meet and not quite making it," he wrote in "A Native's Return." I met Shirer on a morning 17 years after the publication of "Rise and Fall," in a second-floor study of his New England farmhouse, where he wrote on a battered Royal typewriter. He was wearing a blue denim outfit with droopy back pockets and rolled-up cuffs, and had been reading Balzac and Stendhal, Pushkin and Chekhov, in front of a brick fireplace. He was bald on the front of his skull but two huge white earmuffs of hair rested on either side of his head. He had no patience for the book's academic critics, who dismissed it as mere journalism. "I had more time to write than history teachers," he said. "I had no classes to teach." Yet Shirer's book still has lessons. Jonathan Steinberg, who teaches modern European history at the University of Pennsylvania, considers "Rise and Fall" a vital primary source. "He was there," Mr. Steinberg says. "It has a direct vividness of the eyewitness that other books lack." The book was the first serious swipe at digesting 485 tons of confidential documents in the archives of the German government, and it shaped like no other force the way Nazism was remembered in the 1960s and the way it is interpreted in 2011. But that may not be its ultimate significance. William Shirer died 18 years ago. But his book — indeed, the book as an art form, even if it isn't always in book form — is far from dead. David M.

Thank you to the five members of the Kennett Key Club who enthusiastically ran about the train delivering souvenir photographs and helping with fund raising. And finally, heartfelt thanks to the over 300 passengers who joined us for this unique and fun day on the rails. Jeff Bailey, chair Kiwanis Autumn Express Committee

‘Everything I imagined, times a hundred’ Page 12 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, October 22, 2011

Jeff Locke reflects on his introduction to the big leagues BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Dreams do come true if you work hard enough. Jeff Locke, the son of Pam and Alan Locke and grandson of Greta Locke, all of Redstone, saw his dream become a reality earlier this fall when he made his Major League debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 23-year-old left-handed pitcher said it was 100 times better than he ever imagined the experience to be, and he described the Majors as, quite simply, "The Men's League." It was an incredible summer for Locke, who went from Class AA to Class AAA and onto the Major Leagues in the span of a few weeks. He lost almost 50 pounds in the process, dropping from 221 in February to 175 at the end of the season. "It was just another day in AA in August and here comes my 36 or 37th start and I'm still in AA," he said during a visit last week to The Conway Daily Sun. "I was like, 'I've got to pitch better or do something,' and then when it did happen it happened really fast. I was in AAA for less than four weeks and then in September I find myself in Pittsburgh for the last month of the season. "Things clicked at AAA," Locke continued. "Maybe it was just a different setting, sometimes a different place makes a difference. When I got to AA the first time it was, 'Oh my gosh, I'm two steps away, one if we skip (AAA). I'm that close.' You start to taste it a little bit more. When I actually got to Pittsburgh I didn't know what to expect, I had no clue. There's no manual." Locke got the news of his call-up following what he thought was his last start for the AAA Indianapolis Indians. He got called into the manager's office with a few other players. "Four of us got called in and told, 'You sit down, you sit down, you go over there,'" he said. "They told us, 'You're going up, you're going up for the first time and you're going back up again.' It was cool, almost surreal. There were a lot of guys who were rehabbing on that team like Ryan Ludwick was there, a Major League guy, and Chase d'Arnaud and Alex Presley. When they got got called back they knew they were going. I didn't have a clue. We talked about hoping it would happen. I knew that I'd thrown a lot of innings. I was really happy obviously with the decision. "They told me before how this was going to happen," Locke said. "You're going to try to explain it to people how great it is but you can't. It's everything I ever imagined but times a hundred. I can't really compare it to any other moment I've ever had. Not one thing stood out, not one at-bat, not one game or anything like that. The time that I was up there was so special and no one can ever take it away. If I never went back I'll remember it pretty clearly." There's a huge difference between AA and AAA to the big leagues. For one thing, there are no more long bus rides. "So many things are so convenient," Locke said. "Everyone (in the Majors) is treated so well with the utmost respect. It costs a lot of money to be a Major Leaguer, I'm realizing that. It costs a lot of money every day. It's $85 per day to the clubhouse guy. You have to pay for them to do all your laundry; get your uniform ready; and put on a buffet with a chef and an assistant. They clean my cleats three or four times a day." Locke arrived in Pittsburgh and sat in the dugout when the Pirates hosted the Houston Astros on a rain-soaked evening. "First day in the big leagues and it was pouring," he said. "There wasn't a thousand people at the ball game. I was like, 'Where is everybody?'" His first start came in Pittsburgh against the Florida Marlins in front of a sellout crowd.

"I had a lot of guys from my legion team in Plymouth come," Locke said. "It was really good to see those guys come out. They would be there for my first one and they all showed up. I was happy that Todd (Frechette, a friend and former teammate at Kennett) was able to be there. He's caught me in the off-season and thrown with me, helping me get to where I've gotten. Obviously, the family being there was huge." Locke said he received plenty of advice from his new teammates, but nothing really prepares you for that

first time you step out on the mound in PNC Park. "It was just weird, especially the first game," he said. "I get pretty nervous for all games when I'm pitching until they start and I settle in. It was actually unfortunate that my family was there for my first start (in the Majors); it was bad because it throws everything off. When they come into town, it's like, 'OK, I've got to go and make sure they get in OK.' There were people from all over the place coming to this game and it's see LOCKE page 20

The glove was almost bigger than Jeff Locke in 1996, but he always had Major League aspirations.

Jeff Locke’s journey to the Majors BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Jeff Locke has arrived in the Major Leagues, but he enjoyed quite a journey to The Show. His baseball career began in earnest as a school boy attending John Fuller School when he was drafted by the Conway Royals, the worst team in Mount Washington Valley Little League at the time. "We were bad even for a Little League team," Locke said, laughing. "We were terrible. It's kind of a neat story. I grew up close to Winfield Jones and Ryan Garrette and all three of us wanted was to play on the same Little League team. I got picked by the Royals; Winfield went to the A's; and Ryan was picked by North Conway Rotary. Almost every game we ended up playing against each other." Locke pitched and played shortstop — yes, a left-hander. After a rough first year, the team went undefeated the following season and won the championship. Locke continued to move up the local baseball ladder playing on various teams, including All Star teams coached by Paul Ray and playing Babe Ruth League for Tee Enterprise and Abbott's Dairy with coaches Todd Gallagher and Brian Day, respectively. He arrived at Kennett High in 2003

and had an immediate impact on the baseball team, helping the Eagles reach the Elite 8 that year. The following are some milestones along the way for the Redstone Rocket: June 4, 2004 — Second seeded Kennett opens the Class I playoffs by topping visiting Coe-Brown Academy 11-1 in six innings (the game was called due to the 10-run mercy rule). Locke, a sophomore, strikes out 10. July 2005 — Locke is selected as the New Hampshire Player of the Year by the Manchester Union Leader. Locke, who compiled a record of 28-2 in three years for the Eagles, is the first player from Conway to receive such an honor. "He's not a secret anymore. I don't think he has to worry about going to tryouts; the scouts will come looking for him," Bob Burns, head baseball coach for Kennett High said. According to Burns, in three years Locke averaged more than 12 strikeouts and just one walk a game for the Class I Eagles. In 2005, Locke threw a perfect game, striking out every batter he faced, in a five-inning contest shortened under the 10-run mercy rule. Even when he wasn't pitching, Locke stood out among the Eagles, batting .434 with eight home runs, and playing a sterling outfield when he wasn't on the mound. see JOURNEY page 15

Jeff Locke clocked 94 miles per hour on radar guns during his first start his senior year at Kennett in 2006.

Not only could Jeff Locke pitch, he was also a very good hitter as a youngster, routinely batting third for his teams.


Fans from Conway made the trek to see Jeff Locke’s first Major League start. They were thrilled when they actually got to meet him after the game. JOURNEY from page 13

Burns said Locke had all sorts of potential. "You can teach a kid a curve ball or a change-up but you can't teach throwing hard fortunately, he's already got that down." Summer 2005 — Not only did Locke help Kennett reach the Final Four, he also enjoyed another 40 games of summer ball helping the Plymouth American Legion team reach the state championship game. After helping Plymouth to the title game, Locke was asked to play in several tournaments around New England. In late August he played in a four-team tournament in Lynn, Mass., and started the All Star game. The game attracted scouts from 14 Major League teams. "A lot of the scouts have lists of players who they specifically came to see," Locke said. "There were people who traveled from all over and I was the only player on a couple of their lists. It makes you feel good that they know who you are." Locke struck out four and didn't allow a run in the All Star game. He received an offer to go to North Carolina to represent the Red Sox, but it conflicted with his American Legion team's schedule. At the end of August, he was invited by the New York Yankees to go to Yankee Stadium for a tryout, but again, scheduling conflicts got in the way. University of Connecticut called. Lamar University, a perennial top 25 power in Texas, also showed interest, as did St. John's University in New York. "I'm just taking it all in; every day something else exciting happens," Locke said at the time. "I hope I get drafted, playing pro ball has been a dream for so long, but college is another good option. Maybe some team see next page

will see something in me. For now, the most important thing is for me to stay healthy and in good shape." April 12, 2006 — A record crowd of over 500 turned out to watch Kennett Eagles top Hollis-Brookline 2-1 in the season opener. All eyes were on Locke and he didn't disappoint. The talented left-hander struck out 12, scattered three hits and walked four in seven innings of work. He was also 3-4 at the plate, scoring the winning run after lacing a double and coming home on a two-base throwing error. With scouts from just about every Major League team on hand and each armed with a radar gun, one might have thought there was no end of pressure on Locke, but he was more than up for the task. He was routinely clocked at 90 miles per hour and reached 94 a couple of times. "It was fun to watch all of the scouts with the radar guns, it was sort of like watching synchronized swimming," athletic director Steve Mello said, laughing. Locke agreed. "When I pitched in Florida the scouts were there to see everyone," he said. "Today it looked like an army with all of those guns. I'd been waiting for this day for so long, it was even better than I thought it would be. It was what I wanted it to be and more. I'm just so pleased we won and proud of the way we played." June 1, 2006 — Locke is regarded as the best prospect to come out of the Granite State since Chris Carpenter, the ace of the St. Louis Cardinals staff and the current National League Cy Young Award winner. Carpenter, who attended Trinity High in Manchester, was the Toronto Blue Jays' first-round pick in 1993 Locke was 6-0 on the season with a 0.49 earned run average with 71 strikeouts in 37 innings heading into the opening round of the Class I playoffs. June 6, 2006 — Locke is selected by the Atlanta Braves in the second round of the Major League baseball draft. He was the 51st player picked in the country (college and high school combined). "It's an incredible day," Locke said from his Redstone home where he spent the day surrounded by family with phones ringing off the hook. "I can't believe it. To be taken with the fourth or fifth pick in the second round and No. 51 in the country is such an honor, especially to go to a team as successful as Atlanta." Locke received a $675,000 signing bonus from the Braves. Other prominent names taken in that draft include Evan Longoria, No. 3 by Rays; Clayton Kershaw, No. 7 by the Dodgers; Tim Lincecum, No. 10 by the Giants; Ian Kennedy, No. 21 by the Yankees; Daniel Bard, No. 28 by the Red Sox; Joba Chamberlain, No. 41 by the Yankees; Brett Anderson, No. 55 by the Diamondbacks; Trevor Cahill, No. 66 by the A's; Justin Masterson, No. 71 by the Red Sox; Jon Jay, No. 74 by the Cardinals; Andrew Bailey, No. 188 by the A's; Doug Fister, No.

201 by the Mariners; Ryan Kalish, No. 283 by the Red Sox; Desmond Jennings, No. 289 by the Rays; Matt Latos, No. 333 by the Pardes; Daniel Murphy, No. 394 by the Mets; Matt LaPorta, No. 433 by the Red Sox; and Dave Robertson, No. 524 by the Yankees. School yearbooks came out and, although Locke wasn't voted Most Likely to Succeed, he received the senior superlative for Best Smile. The player capsule on Locke read: "Jeffrey Locke, LHP, second round: Pitching in New Hampshire, Locke isn't as advanced as many other high school pitchers. But his 94 mph fastball has led some to compare him to Billy Wagner. The Braves believe he has a real high ceiling." Locke compiled impressive numbers during the season, going 8-0 through 61 innings, with an earned run average of 0.68, seven complete games, 116 strikeouts, 20 hits and 12 walks. June 11, 2006 — Kennett High earns a trip to the state baseball championship game, and Locke makes his final high school start. He pitched a three-hit gem, walking none while striking out 15, including six in a row to start the game. The only run he gave up was unearned. "It was a nice feeling to have Jeff (Locke) go out and crank the way he did," Coach Burns said. "I think he threw more fastballs the last two innings than he did at any other point in the game. He did a masterful job; he's like a pro." June 13, 2006 — Kennett loses to ConVal, 5-3, in the Class I state championship game in Manchester. "They were better than us when they had to be," Locke, who went 1-2 with a pair of walks from the designated hitter spot, said. "I'd love to play them again. We didn't deserve to win, we made too many errors." Locke, 37-2 in his high school career, went 9-0 for the season, with an earned run average of 0.40, eight complete games, 129 strikeouts, 22 hits and 12 walks. Locke is a unanimous choice as the New Hampshire Player of the Year, becoming the first athlete to win the prestigious award twice. September 8, 2006 — Locke wraps up his first summer with the Braves, playing in the Gulf Coast League in Florida. He led the team in wins with four and was selected as the player of month for August. His season started out rocky, but by the end of the 50-game schedule, he was on Baseball America's hot list. Locke led the team in wins with four and was second on the club in strikeouts with 38. The Braves, the youngest team in the league, went 23-27 in the 50-game schedule to finish third in the Northern Division, missing post-season play. Locke appeared in 10 games, starting five while posting a 4-3 record with an earned run average of 4.24 while allowing 38 hits in 32 innings of work while walking five and striking out 38. "Don't let his numbers fool you (even though they are still impressive), but Locke is the cream of the crop here," writes the administra-

tor for "Not only does he sport a nifty 7.6 K/BB ratio, but if you take away his first couple of outings (where he got shelled) he was arguably the most dominating pitcher in the GCL." June 2007 — Locke opens his second professional season with the Braves' Danville, Va. team in the Appalachian League and is given the honor of starting opening day before an estimated crowd of 3,000. July 30, 2007 — Locke is named the Appalachian League's Pitcher of the Week. His numbers for the week: 2-0, 0.00 ERA, 11 innings pitched, 6 hits, 0 runs, 0 earned runs, 2 walks, and 10 strikeouts. September 2007 — Locke is named the Appalachian League's Left-Handed Pitcher of the Year, and he is also named to the league's first-time All-Star squad. Locke took his lumps once during the summer, losing on opening night in June,but went on to log a 7-1 record (along with one save) and post a 2.64 earned run average. In Locke's final 10 starts during the regular season, he crafted a 6-0 record with a minuscule ERA of 1.74. Locke closed the book on the regular season on Aug. 27 when he won his seventh straight decision and struck out a career-high 11 in a 6-1 win over the Johnson City Cardinals. In his longest outing of the season, Locke went 6 2/3 innings before leaving to a standing ovation. The 11 strikeouts gave him 74 on the year, which put him second in the league. Later in the month, Locke was flown to Turner Field in Atlanta where he was recognized as the Danville Braves Pitcher of the Year. "Every year the Braves like to reward one of their minor league managers by letting them spend the rest of the season up with the big league club," Locke said. "This year it was my manager Paul Rungee, and who was the first person I saw when I walked through the tunnel out to the field, it was Paul Rungee. He gave me a big hug and congratulated me on the season again. After that we met all of the coaches, and Bobby Cox (Braves manager) came over the spoke with us. He was really nice. He said, 'Come on boys, take off your jackets and watch BP (batting practice).' There I was in back of the batting cage an arm's length away from Chipper (Jones) and Andruw (Jones). John Smoltz came out and congratulated us. He's got to be the nicest guy in baseball." April 2008 — The Redstone Rocket takes the next step up the ladder to Major League baseball, pitching for the Rome (Ga.) Braves on opening night against Charlestown River Dogs (New York Yankees affiliate) in the Class A South Atlantic League. August 2008 — Locke went 5-12 with a 4.06 ERA in 25 games (24 starts) for Class A Rome this summer. "That stat line, in and of itself, is not all that exciting, especially when you consider the 2006 second-rounder was 11-4 with a 3.19 ERA in 23 career appearsee next page

ances heading into this season," states minorbaseball,com. "But Locke rebounded nicely from a 1-7 start to go 4-5 with a 3.84 ERA over his final 11 outings. His strikeout-to-walk ratio (113-to-38) remained solid, though not nearly as good as the 112-to-13 that he brought into this season in 93 career innings." April 2009 — Locke takes to the mound on opening night for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans in the Class A Carolina League. He's now regarded as the No. 3 pitching prospect in the Braves organization. June 3, 2009 — The Braves trade Locke to the Pittsburgh Pirates along with Charlie Morton and Gorkys Hernández in exchange for Nate McLouth. The Pirates assigned Locke to their Class A Advanced affiliate, the Lynchburg Hillcats. "I didn't see it coming, no one did," Locke said. Locke said he was surprised to see the attention the trade made on ESPN where his name appeared on the bottom of the scroll through the evening and then was talked about on Baseball Tonight. "I was in a restaurant and (former major league player and manager) Buck Martinez (now an ESPN analyst) was talking about me," Locke said. "I walked up to the television to listen to what he was saying and a guy in the restaurant asked if I was a Braves' fan. I said, 'No, I just got traded,' and walked away." September 2009 — Locke and the Lynchburg Hillcats complete their magical run through the Carolina League playoffs winning their third Mills Cup title (the minor league equivalent of the World Series), wrapping up a threegame sweep of the host Salem Red Sox with an 8-7 victory. Locke made 27 starts in 2009 (17 for the Hillcats and 10 for Myrtle Beach), posting a 4.49 earned run average in 127.1 innings pitched; allowing 145 hits, walking 44; and striking out 99. Over his final 10 starts for the Hillcats, Locke was 3-1 with a 3.31 ERA, walking just nine in 49 innings and striking out 37. In his final regular season start Sept. 6, Locke beat the Salem Red Sox 1-0, scattering four hits over 6.2 innings while fanning six and walking none. April 2010 — Locke starts his fourth professional baseball season in the Florida State League with the newly created Bradenton Mauraders.

June 2010 — Locke is selected to play in the 2010 Florida State League MidSeason All-Star Game in Viera, Fla. He is 5-3 with a 3.99 earned run average in 58.2 innings. He allowed 57 hits; 33 runs (26 earned); 11 walks; and struck out 55 (11th best in the league). Locke had carried an ERA of 2.50 through his first nine starts, but saw it balloon with a pair of rough outings. July 14, 2010 — The Redstone Rocket is cleared for takeoff from Florida and lands in Altoona, Pa. Locke, who was leading the Florida State League in wins (9-3 for the Bradenton Marauders), was promoted from High Class A to Double AA, and had 72 hours to report to his new team — the Altoona Curve. Locke made his debut for the Curve at the Harrisburg Senators, an affiliate of the Washington Nationals. With the promotion to AA came an opportunity for the people of Mount Washington Valley to see Locke pitch close to home. Altoona is on the Portland Sea Dogs' schedule. August 18, 2010 — A perfect night for baseball turned into a perfect evening for Jeff Locke, his family and friends — anywhere between 800 to 1,300 from Mount Washington Valley — at Hadlock Field. For Locke it was the closest thing to a home game in his four-year professional career and it just happened to be against the Portland Sea Dogs, the Class AA minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, his favorite team growing up. Locke was sensational for the Curve, tossing seven shutout innings while scattering three hits (all doubles), walking one and striking out eight in the 1-0 win. On the night, the Redstone Rocket was economical needing just 79 pitches, of which 55 were strikes, to get through seven innings against a talented Portland squad. "It was everything I thought it would be, for the most part," Locke said in the locker room just minutes after his club closed out the victory. "I'm super happy." September 2010 — Locke made sure his final start of the season was one of his best. He gave up one earned run while striking out eight over seven innings to help Altoona even the best-offive Eastern League (AA) championship series at a game apiece with the Trenton Thunder (New York Yankees). The Curve went on to win the series, marking the second consecutive championship for Locke. For the season, with stops between Bradenton, Fla. and Altoona, Locke once again stayed injury free. He made

27 starts, posted a 12-5 regular season record — tops in the Pirates organization — with an overall earned run average of 3.56; 144 innings pitched; 139 hits; 66 runs (57 were earned); 26 walks; struck out 139; and help opposing hitters to a .239 batting average. Locke was added to the Pirates' 40-man roster at the end of the season. March 2011 — Locke attends his first Major League spring training camp. "Every day you walk into Major League camp, you're met by a chef and he asks you what you want for breakfast," Locke said, laughing. "You name it and they make it from scratch for you. There's everything you can imagine, it really is the Major League treatment. The other big difference is instead of having teammates my age (23), I've now got guys who are 37 years old as teammates. If I never, ever get to play in the Major Leagues, if I could do spring training every year, I'd be thrilled. "I've met so many different people this spring, it's been amazing," he said. "I met Roy Halladay (Cy Young winner for the Philadelphia Phillies), David Price (ace of the Tampa Bay Rays pitching staff), and Manny Ramirez (former Boston Red Sox slugger). I've been in this game long enough now to meet people who know other people and I got introduced to these guys, it's so cool. The best way I can say it is I'm living every kids' dream right now. Every kid has the dream to play in the Major Leagues and I've been able to do it and, yet, I don't feel like I didn't belong here." Locke pitched nine innings for the Pirates before being sent to the minor league complex as expected. He posted an earned run average of 3.00 from those starts. "The first batter I ever faced in my Major League career was Vladimir Guerrero (nine-time All-Star outfielder)," Locke said. "He got into the batter's box and he just looked like Vladimir Guerrero and I had to realize I'm the guy pitching to him. The first pitch I threw him was a called strike. The next one I threw was hard and off the plate. I thought it was going to hit him in the belly-button but he just flicked it over the first baseman's head for a single and and he looked at me the whole way as he ran down toward first base almost as if to say, 'That's right, I'm Vladimir Guerrero.'" April 2011 — Locke opens the season in Class AA Altoona. July 11, 2011 — Locke is an All Star for the fourth time in his five-year pro

career. In each of his stops up baseball's professional ladder, he has been selected to play in that league's Summer Classic. Locke was the star among 47 others at the Eastern League AA All Star Game at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester Wednesday. Before a soldout crowd of 7,152, the lone player with New Hampshire ties received the loudest and longest ovations of the night. He pitched a scoreless third inning, registering 94 mph four times on the stadium's radar gun. July 29, 2011 — Locke returns to Hadlock Field to face the Sea Dogs. Locke said he didn't have his best fast ball on the night, but he was still effective, pitching five innings, scattering six hits while allowing three runs (only two were earned), striking out four and walking one. He threw 79 pitches, and 51 of those were for strikes. Locke left after the fifth inning with the game deadlocked at 3-3. Altoona scored a pair of runs in the seventh and eighth innings on the way to a 7-4 victory. August 14, 2011 — Locke gets promoted to Class AAA and makes a superb debut for the Indianapolis Indians against the Louisville Bats (Cincinnati Reds affiliate). He pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings and even had a hit in his first at-bat and left with a 1-0 lead only to see the Tribe's bullpen squander the lead by allowing four runs in the bottom of the eighth. Locke was 7-8 at Double A Altoona, making 22 starts, working 125 innings while allowing 118 hits; 68 runs (56 earned runs); walking 46 while striking out 114 and compiling a 4.03 earned run average. He didn't allow more than three runs in any of his last six starts, posting an ERA of 2.82 over that period. September 4, 2011 — Jeff Locke's lifelong dream becomes a reality. Locke, 23, is promoted to the Major Leagues. The Pirates had kept their September call-ups quiet and Locke didn't know what was in the cards for him, especially since he had already pitched a careerhigh in innings this season. "They were pretty hush-hush about who was going up and who was going to the instructional league (in Florida) or the fall league (in Arizona)," Locke said. "I didn't know what was going on. I really felt like I might not be going anywhere this off-season. I thought they might tell me just to go home get some rest because I was closing in on 160 innings pitched." Little did Locke know that the Pirates had other plans.

weigh 1,358 pounds. It was taken in A-2 region near Pittsburg, Rines said Due to the recovery of the moose population, New Hampshire has had an annual moose hunt by permit only through a lottery system since 1988. This year, nearly 14,000 people entered the moose hunt lottery for a chance to win one of the 395 permits drawn for the New Hampshire moose hunt. There are an estimated 5,000 moose in the state, according to Rines. She said the opening weekend was rainy and cold. More than a quarter of New Hampshire’s moose hunters were successful during the first two days of this year's season, achieving a 27 percent success rate. On Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 15-16), a total of 111 moose were taken by moose hunters statewide — 75 bulls and 36 cows. The success rate was down from 37 percent during opening weekend in 2010.

“Music is like a bridge,” he said. He was there to introduce the children to a cultural experience they might never experience otherwise. Khan was in the Mount Washington Valley as part of Caravanserai, a program funded by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art, aimed at introducing people to artists from the Muslim world. Most people in northern New Hampshire never get a chance to hear Sufi drummers, said Frumie Selchen, executive director of the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire, which hosted Khan and a number of other musicians for their tour of the region, but this program makes it possible. Earlier in the day Khan and his ensemble were at Kennett High. The day before they were in Berlin along with Qawal Najmuddin Saifuddin and his brothers, who are all traditional Pakistani singers. The program name, Caravanserai, Selchen said, comes from the old Silk Road. They were roadside inns where

travelers stopped and rested, often sharing ideas, music and culture. That is the goal of these programs, she said, to share music and culture. The students at Josiah Bartlett were certainly in a sharing state of mind. When Khan asked for a volunteer to help him up front, more than 30 kids jumped at the chance. He sat on the floor, the students fanned out next to him, challenging them to chant faster than he could play. Several tried, but no one could outpace his fingers.

tough to try to see everybody and still worry about doing your job. I got to the park that day and of course there's a bunch of 35-year-old guys who kept coming up to me and saying, 'Are you nervous kid, you nervous?' "I got to sit down with a few of the guys before the game and they want to explain to you what a debut is all about. I thought it was, 'Na, it's just the first game,' but it's way more than just the first game. Start two was Dodgers Stadium, no nerves, nothing. Game one could have been against the little league team in town but as long as it was going to be at PNC Park it was going to be nerve-wracking. The first time you walk out onto the field it was unreal. I'm used to 5,000 fans max for like a fireworks night, not 40,000. "You're doing something you worked your entire life to do and it's happening right now," Locke continued. "Like for the first time ever, right now. You try to harness those emotions and kind of understand what's going on. A couple of the guys said, and I didn't think of it, but it would have helped, they said for the first inning only don't look anywhere else except the catcher's mitt. Don't even look around, don't even take a deep breath, just look at the catcher's mitt the whole time and everything will be fine. A lot of guys do that the first time out and it's fine. I hadn't even thrown the first pitch yet and I was like, 'Wow, this is great' looking all over the place. "Anyone who says they can't hear the crowd, they're lying. I promise you, you hear everything. You have so many emotions. You're happy because from the time you could walk this is where you wanted to be some day and that day is today. It flashes through your head look how far you've had to come and it's all happening now — while you're throwing pitches! I can't believe I'm here and I'm looking over there and all over the place at people. In warm-ups, it's like, 'I can't believe this is happening, I'm here.'"

Locke quickly adapted to a new routine. "Talking to guys in the Major Leagues who have been there awhile, it's way different then you assume it would be," he said. "From the time you get up, it's a full day, it's a like real job. And when you go to the field, there's so much media there all the time. It's a big difference from the the minor leagues where there was nobody there covering your games ever. Maybe there'd be like one guy there saying, 'You didn't have your best stuff tonight.' Now, there's 50 people reaching hands in. They don't care if you do good, bad, fair, they're going to get in your face and try to make you say something terrible. It doesn't bother me. "The media made a really big deal about me pitching, like a much bigger deal than I thought they would," Locke said. "The media was good and nice, they were like, 'So how do you feel today,' and it was three days before the game. I felt fine. "The feeling I'll never forget is being on the mound and looking around and seeing Derek Lee on first base and Neil Walker, the Pittsburgh kid, was at second. It was like, 'Oh my gosh, this kid's from Pittsburgh, they go crazy when he stands up. The fans were so great." Locke says ballplayers are a different breed. "I'm learning that," he said with a big grin. "Guys who have been doing it for around 20 years are just wired different. They get to wake up every day and put on a costume and run around on the grass. They're married and bring their kids out on the field. It's so much different than having to get up and go into work every day to desk job. These guys are like 12 years old. They just tell you to never take it for granted." Locke said Milwaukee is the loudest place he's ever pitched. He got the ball for the final game of the season in Miller Park before a vocal sellout crowd of 41,900.

"It's a very different stadium," he said. "The roof is always open during the day. With it getting colder when I pitched, the roof was closed and the ball just flies, it goes. I couldn't believe all three (home runs) went out, because the week before (at home against the Cincinnati Reds) I was just was throwing balls that they were hitting to the warning track that (center fielder Andrew) McCutchen was just hauling in. Clint (Hurdle, Pirates manager) said to me in the dugout then, 'Man, Locke, you sure haven't been here very long, but you know how big this field is, you know exactly where to throw 'em.'" Locke has nothing but praise for Hurdle. "Clint is just a fantastic manager with a story for every situation," he said. "He's never in a situation that he hasn't been in before. He told us right before our last game (in Milwaukee), 'Watch (the Brewers) faces; listen to what the winning team says at the end of the year — we had a great group of guys and we all came together. They're not making it up, you have to work as a team in every aspect.' We get together right after we get off

the plane. We get to the hotel, unload our bags and then everyone gets together real quick to do something together even for half an hour, try to build from within. It's definitely a very young team, but we're gaining." Locke said pitchers Charlie Morton and Jason Grilli took him under their wings and helped show him the ropes. He also immediately became a huge video watcher, soaking up as much as possible about opposing hitters. He's a quick study because he knew right away what Reds' second baseman Brandon Phillips was going to do, both at the plate and one base. Locke picked him off first base in the first inning. "I watched so much film on him, you just know," he said. "You watch so much. He swung a change-up that never even reached the plate but I knew he was going to swing. He wants to swing the bat. If he sees a pitch coming out good, he's going to swing, he's one of those guys. He's also one of those guys who you can't make a mistake to. "Look at the day I threw against the Brewers and Cory Hart didn't make contact with a pitch," Locke continued. "And then, he hits a curve ball that was down and away out to the opposite field. These guys are good. It's so easy

for these guys. They know how to hit it and what to do with each pitch. This is a men's league right here. That's why aside from a few people, you don't see a lot of 24- or 25-year-old guys making a huge impact. You look at guys like (Albert) Pujols, he's 31, and Matt Kemp, he's 27, we come out early and watch them taking batting practice and the ball just sounds different coming off their bats. They just look different, I don't know how to explain it. "Triple A is not even comparable to the Major Leagues, nothing is. Every single pitch you better know exactly what you're doing, you better not give anything away. You better not even move your glove a little bit, the hitters are that good." The Majors are everything Locke thought they would be and more. "It's just a great place," he said with a wide smile. "You never get tired. Nothing is ever sore. It's just different, the stage is bigger, the lights are brighter, mistakes get taken advantage of. It's very professional up there. It's everything I've worked for and I wanted but I had no idea what it would be like until I got there." Locke threw a record number of innings this season with 170 total

between AA and the Majors. "For me, I've never gone that high before," he said. "You definitely know. I know what my arm feels like in August, I know what it feels like in May. You start to know yourself." Having gotten a taste of the big leagues, Locke said there's no doubt in his mind he belongs. "I know how close it is," he said. "I know I shouldn't say this, but it's easy for me to get from where I am to where I need to be. It's not like I need to change my mechanics. I'm not going to throw the ball different. I'm not going to drop down side-arm. It's just this much (holding his fingers an inch apart), that's it, that's all that separates it. A lot of it has to do with when you realize it's not that big of a deal anymore. Like the game against Cincinnati. I was like, I've already pitched two games. I got roughed up in L.A., I just want to go out there and do what I can. "Sometimes I think I check myself out of innings before they're over a lot of times," Locke continued. "That's something that I think every pitcher does. They look at the situation playing out. I'll have a man on first and I'll see next page

be thinking about a double play which I haven't even gotten yet. I'm thinking about the fourth inning when I'm still in the third. You've got to take it one pitch at a time or the next thing you know you're backing up all of the bases and guys are just turning left until they get back to where they started." Hurdle praised Locke for his willingness to pitch inside and challenge hitters. "That's one thing that I know that I did really well and I know that I did more than anyone else on the team and that was pitch inside," Locke said. Locke already has a few collectibles from his first stint in the Majors. "It was definitely very cool after the first game," he said. "I was able to get the official scorecard, the one that hangs in the dugout that Clint writes out. It's got the Pirates and Marlins logos faded into the back. It lists the roster one through nine and your bench players for both teams. After the game, MLB has to come by and put the official sticker of authenticity on it so you know it's real. They gave me six baseballs. One from my first pitch; my first out; my first strikeout, things like that. Every single ball has a number on it. When it comes out of the game, they put a sticker on it and how it came out of the game. Like my strikeout, they record it on the computer, put a sticker on the ball, give it to me or my family and if I take that number and punch it up on the Internet, it'll tell me exactly what that ball did in its lifetime." Locke said the game plan for next

season is a simple one. He'll head to Florida in early February, report to Major League camp with the Pirates in Bradenton and then… "Go win a spot (on the Pirates' roster), go win a spot, that's got to be the goal," he said. "I feel as though it doesn't matter if I went up to Pittsburgh this past fall and I just crushed it or if I went there and struggled or did some things well and some things not so well. They wanted to see me and wanted to get lots of things out of the way. This could all be just talk, but I feel like they got me ready for next season, instead of having to be nervous all over again. You're still going to be nervous, but you've gotten the major jitters out of the way because you've been there before. "I learned a lot, everything from pitch selection to pitch sequence," Locke, who will earn the Major League minimum salary of $414,000 if he's with the Pirates for the season, said. "If the guy is giving me anything at the plate. Not the ump, but the hitter, is he giving me an available location or is he giving anything away or is he just setting me up to think he can't get to that ball and that's really where he wants it? These guys are like magicians. Pujols gets up there and just looks at you and sticks his tongue out. He's just messing with you. He's got a timing, he's got his foot lifted up and back down, one, two, he's got timing. He doesn't like you to call time out and have to start all over again. I'm telling you that's what the greatest hitter of our time when all is said and done, that's what he does. Everybody can do damage. These guys are that good."

fly southeast in summer. They have completely different routes in each of these two seasons, and this is the reason we might see them. Moving out from their alpine meadows means more flowers around snow patches might be available to them on this return route. They have excellent memory for location in these annual travels, which assists them to find flowers from day to day, even from year to year. Cornell states that some birds have remembered where feeders are from previous migrations and showed up, even if the hanging feeder has been taken in. Bandings show they have remarkable fidelity to routes. They may appear at our sugar water feeders in fall, and have been noted in Hollis just after Columbus Day. ASNH keeps such observations in its quarterly New Hampshire Bird Records that you can subscribe to. Rufous hummingbirds are becoming more common each year, and are less of a shock for birdwatchers to incur as a result. Some are even overwintering in the Southeast USA.

estimated 6.5 million. The bright copper-colored males are said to glow like new pennies. They are rusty with a white breast, and a flaming gorget that is orangered. The female has rusty plumage on flanks and tail. The wings of the stocky male are reported producing a high-pitched trill in flight. They swarm around alpine wildflowers, and may be the most common nesting birds on a mountain hillside. The nest is a cup of plant down, moss, and bark, and decorated with flakes of lichen for camouflage. Hummers pilfer sticky spider web to glue their nest together, which is not without risk, as they can get stuck in the web due to their small size. It is constructed from 5 to 50 feet high, above ground in a forest opening tree or shrub, and contains two white eggs, incubated only by the female. David Sibley says in his Guide to Bird Life & Behavior that a rufous hummingbird made a dozen sallies into a swarm of tiny aphids over 20 minutes, and may have gathered up much prey in his 130 individual attempts. In midsummer, they may start their return migration from mountainous areas like Montana and western Washington to their overwintering grounds in Mexico. They have flown northwest in late winter along the moderate Pacific coast where spring’s flowers may be abundant, but will

Undaunted Janet and I waded in and began to cast. Over the years the regular group has staked out favorite spots along the shore. Janet usually fishes right off the beach and I head over to the right side, where once a lovely willow tree stood. The willow was cut down not long ago. If you fish this pond regularly and know the others who do, you can almost tell who they are from the spots they fish from, even in the dark. I cast for a while and finally hooked a small bass. I walked back over to be with Janet. I asked her if she would like to try a new Orvis line I was trying out and we swapped rods. I watched her cast for a few minutes when I noticed what I thought was a rise off to the left. I was sure it was just another bass, but I thought “Oh, what the heck might as well give it a try”. It was almost dark now and the fish rose again. I flicked the fly to him and he struck. You guessed it; it was a trout. As luck would have it the trout took the fly deep

and I had to cut the fly off in order to release him. By now the other fellows, awakened by the sudden action waded in. I rummaged in my box and came up with the same fly that Janet had on; it was the last one I had and I struggled to tie it on in the near darkness. Once the fly was secured I quickly handed the rod back to Janet and reeled in my line. I said that they were still rising just off to her left. She replied that she knew. One of the other fellows hooked up and landed a second trout. The few trout that there were, abruptly stopped rising. Everyone made a few more half hearted casts before reeling in. Janet was the last to leave the water. I am not sure if I have been forgiven yet. We all walked back to the bench and talked for a bit. The scotch came out and the end of another year was toasted and as usual we all promised to meet there once again next year on the Fourth Saturday of April. See you on the river.

Being a creature of habit, I guess, I headed out in the cloudy predawn darkness for my pre-storm loop hike up Mount Paugus. Heading south on Route 16 from Conway, I turned right on the dirt Chocorua Lake Road and immediately crossed the famous wooden bridge with its view north over the lake to Mount Chocorua. That morning, the sharp summit was unobstructed by smooth clouds that covered the heavens at a much higher altitude. They would conveniently stay that way. Continuing around the lake past Loring Road, I bore left and connected with Fowlers Mill Road, finally reaching the Paugus Road on the right, with its substantial trailhead parking lot at the end. I headed out on the old logging roads, following signs and bearing left. For the crossing over the wide Paugus Brook, I had to walk a short way upstream and hold onto a small tree that was leaning over the brook to get across to some smooth rocks. With dry feet I continued, and soon took a left on the Old Paugus Trail. It’s the quick and interesting ascent and descent that attracts me to this hike on such days. After an enjoyable ramble up Whitten Brook, I bore right and started up the mountain, after a while approaching the steep and dramatic step in the ridge, with its gray cliffs. The trail started up a jumbled ravine to get above the step, then in the middle of it, bore right into the forest to avoid scrambling up the steep narrow gap at the top of the ravine. I knew where the trail was above, and decided to continue up the ravine through the gap, and reconnect with the trail on the flat ridge top above. I reached the ridge top and entered a spruce/fir forest that had been literally blown down sometime last spring. Tall trees lay in disarray like a pile of wooden matches. I easily found the trail in this mess. It was cleared. The Chocorua Mountain Club had had a work day early last summer, and cut blow downs on this trail, and also on the Beeline Trail, which would be my descent route later. A hearty thank you to them. I continued up the interesting trail, passing another step in the ridge, and the site of the previous

Old Shag Shelter. Since the Sandwich Range became a Wilderness Area in 1984, such shelters have been dismantled as they deteriorated. Old Shag Shelter was one of the first to go. After some challenging steep wet ledges on the trail, I reached the first lookout over the Bearcamp Valley. Then I finally I reached the top of the south peak, and strolled 50 feet down to the South Ledges, pushing through scrub on the last few feet of the trail. What a spot. The extensive view west was dominated by the peaks of the Sandwich Range, with the nearby triangular peak of Mount Passaconaway being the most dramatic. Above it were rippled dark clouds. It must be nice on a warm sunny day here, I thought. Many years before I had climbed up to this point on the Lawrence Trail (before it was improved). From the South Ledges, I bushwhacked through thick spruce directly down to the big scar of rotten granite on the peak and carefully descended that, leaving foot prints in the rotten granite, down to the Whitten Brook valley. It had rained the previous day, but was going to clear. I had counted on the sun drying out the forest. But clouds lingered, and by the time I got down to the Whitten Brook valley, I was wet and cold, and it was still cloudy. Later I took the Big Rock Cave Trail back to my car. A hot shower that night was greatly appreciated. On Wednesday, it was fairly mild, and I enjoyed a comfortable lunch on the South Ledges, then took off. I retraced my steps down the Old Paugus Trail for 0.7 miles and took a left on the Beeline Trail. What a joy that was. Unlike the rock and root laden Old Paugus Trail, the steep Beeline Trail is mostly a trough of smooth soil, and winds like a snake directly down to the valley of Paugus Brook. Once there, the Beeline Trail actually continues up Mount Chocorua on the other side. But I took a right on the flat Beeline Cutoff, and soon connected with the Bolles Trail. After a relaxing flat walk accompanied by the sound of Paugus Brook, I passed the start of the Old Paugus Trail, completing a loop. Sure enough, it started raining 100 feet from my car.

Mountain Top Community Orchestra performs music of Dvorak Sunday JACKSON — Mountain Top Music Center’s community orchestra, led by conductor Christopher Nourse, presents an entire program of Antonin Dvorak on Sunday, Oct. 23, at 4 p.m. at the Red Fox Tavern in Jackson.

Song to the Moon, from the opera Russalka. A set of pieces called “Drobnosti,� and two waltzes show off Dvorak’s ability to gracefully weave together very tuneful elements, woven with exquisite romantic harmonies. Some famous melodies—from Humoresque and from a Slavonic Dance provide the audience with tunes to hum all the way home. The community orchestra is

a group of amateur musicians who meet each Wednesday evening to rehearse classical music. The group is always looking for more string players. The orchestra presents four concerts a year. Joining forces with the Mount Washington Valley Choral Society, the group will present part of Handel’s Messiah in December. The suggested donation is $10. For more information call 447-4737.

Sweden Community Emergency Fund sponsors holiday fund-raiser SWEDEN, Maine — To bring the joy of music and a festive introduction to the holiday season, a community concert and dessert event will be held Dec. 3 at the Sweden Town Meeting House at 7 p.m. Tickets for Holiday Harmonies and Decadent Desserts will be available by calling Jane Gibbons at (207) 647-3987. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children under 12. Proceeds will go to the Sweden Community Emergency Fund. The Holiday Harmonies program is led by professional songwriter and musician Davy Sturtevant, with Birds on a Wire (Greg and Jenny Huang-Dale and Janine Loubier) and Blue Side’s Ken and Laurie Turley already signed on

as featured musicians. Classical, gospel, country and a holiday singalong will be in the mix. Decadent desserts will include chocolate fondue, yule logs, a gingerbread house and more. A raffle of lovely craft creations by Sweden residents will be held as well. Sweden residents who find themselves in an emergency situation have benefited from the Community Emergency Fund for the last three years. Residents faced with insufficient income have sought emergency assistance to pay medical bills, childcare costs, home and auto costs, fuel bills and other emergencies. The Community Emergency

Fund is managed by the pastor of the Sweden Community Church, with funds donated by community-minded Sweden residents. With government cutbacks in funding for human services and a winter of hardship anticipated by several residents, the fund needs to be replenished. To make a contribution to the Sweden Emergency Fund, make out a check to “Sweden Community Church” and write “Community Emergency Fund” on the bottom line. Send it to Sweden Community Fund, 12 Chase Place, Sweden, ME 04040. If you are a resident of Sweden and need assistance, please call Kim Marie, the church pastor, at 925-2526.

“You Are Welcome!”


by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams


By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are emboldened by distance. That’s why email is so dangerous: You can write things you wouldn’t say in person, especially if you knew you would soon be seeing the other person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Life is too short to overreact to the parts of it you can’t control. Knowing this, you will spend your time in traffic or waiting in line doing something more productive than stewing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A strange old feeling comes back around, signaling that it is finally time to give yourself the warmhearted attention you did not get years ago when you really needed it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll solve problems by first of all believing that it is possible to solve them. Giving up hope too soon is a danger. Consider taking a temporary break (instead of quitting altogether) and coming back to the issue later. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll work on expressing yourself with clarity and simplicity. You may not reach the goal, but adopting an effective communication style gives you the best chance. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 22). Your talent for uniting and organizing others will be put to good use this year. You’ll generously help friends and worthy causes and will enjoy a windfall when others return the favor. A project takes off in November. Advertise in January. You’ll make an extremely fortuitous commitment in March. July brings travel. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 39, 22 and 1.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Be careful not to mix up the nonessentials with the essentials. Things like proper rest and a good haircut are not frivolous at all, nor is anything that helps you feel good and attract the best in life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can have the goods, but you also have to know how to present them, or no one will buy in. Avoid working completely alone. Gather impressions from others. A partner or mentor can help you home in on a strategy. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You respond well to positive feedback. When you know you’re being heard, cared about and accepted, you will form an immediate bond with the one who offers you this acceptance. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you are willing to interpret events in a very positive way, magic happens. What at first seems like a mistake will turn out to be the best part of a process or the most brilliant aspect of the end result. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want life to be simple, and yet nothing is one way. Work and relationships are multifaceted. Discounting the evidence that doesn’t support your initial belief about a person or situation would be unwise. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The one who keeps everything inside forces you to pretend you’re a mind reader. If you have to guess what another person is thinking, try to guess something positive. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Certain thoughts have a gravitational pull, leading you down a spiral of untruths. But if you can resist believing the first one in the series, you’ll skip over the black hole and dance in the light.

Yesterday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, October 22, 2011— Page 33

Today is Saturday, Oct. 22, the 295th day of 2011. There are 70 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 22, 1811, composer and piano virtuoso Franz Liszt was born in the Hungarian town of Raiding in present-day Austria. On this date: In 1746, Princeton University was first chartered as the College of New Jersey. In 1797, French balloonist Andre-Jacques Garnerin made the first parachute descent, landing safely from a height of about 3,000 feet over Paris. In 1836, Sam Houston was inaugurated as the first constitutionally elected president of the Republic of Texas. In 1883, the original Metropolitan Opera House in New York held its grand opening with a performance of Gounod’s “Faust.” In 1928, Republican presidential nominee Herbert Hoover spoke of the “American system of rugged individualism” in a speech at New York’s Madison Square Garden. In 1934, bank robber Charles “Pretty Boy” Floyd was shot to death by federal agents at a farm in East Liverpool, Ohio. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy announced a quarantine of all offensive military equipment shipped to Cuba, following the discovery of Soviet-built missile bases on the island. In 1979, the U.S. government allowed the deposed Shah of Iran to travel to New York for medical treatment — a decision that precipitated the Iran hostage crisis. French conductor and music teacher Nadia Boulanger died in Paris. In 1981, the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization was decertified by the federal government for its strike the previous August. In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed into law sweeping tax-overhaul legislation. One year ago: WikiLeaks released 391,831 purported Iraq war logs that suggested more than 100,000 Iraqi civilians had died in the conflict. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Joan Fontaine is 94. Actor Christopher Lloyd is 73. Actor Derek Jacobi is 73. Actor Tony Roberts is 72. Actress Annette Funicello is 69. Actress Catherine Deneuve is 68. Rock musician Leslie West (Mountain) is 66. Actor Jeff Goldblum is 59. Movie director Bill Condon is 56. Actor Luis Guzman is 54. Actor-writerproducer Todd Graff is 52. Rock musician Cris Kirkwood is 51. Actor-comedian Bob Odenkirk is 49. Olympic gold medal figure skater Brian Boitano is 48. Actress Valeria Golino is 45. Comedian Carlos Mencia is 44. Country singer Shelby Lynne is 43. Actress Saffron Burrows is 39. Actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson is 36. Actor Michael Fishman is 30. Talk show host Michael Essany is 29. Rock musician Zac Hanson is 26. Actor Jonathan Lipnicki is 21. Actress Sofia Vassilieva is 19.

Page 36 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, October 22, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in my early 20s. I have an uncle in his late 30s who keeps asking me invasive questions about my relationship status. Every time I see “Uncle Roger” at family gatherings he asks if I have a boyfriend yet, why I’m not seeing anyone or what I’m doing single. He assumes it’s because I don’t want to put up with the boyfriend drama. Uncle Roger makes me feel bad about not being interested in a relationship or dating at the moment. I have told him to back off, without success. He just laughs it off and then the questions continue. Yet, this man has never been in any stable relationship himself. Is there something wrong with me because I haven’t met the right person? Am I supposed to force relationships to happen? What can I say to Uncle Roger to make him stop? -- BEYOND ANNOYED IN OAKLAND, CALIF. DEAR BEYOND ANNOYED: Uncle Roger may think he’s being funny by relentlessly asking why you’re not involved with anyone. Because you have asked him to stop and he presses on, you have two choices: Avoid and ignore him, or turn the tables. When he asks you about your love life, instead of becoming defensive, answer his question with a question: “Why aren’t YOU involved with anyone, Uncle Roger? Why are you still single at your age? Can’t you find anyone who’ll say yes?” And be sure to laugh right back at him. As long as you let him know he’s getting to you, he will continue. Sometimes the best defense is a strong offense. DEAR ABBY: My dad died recently. He and Mom were married 60 years. Apparently, Mom hid her anger at him well, because she now says she couldn’t stand him. None of us kids can bring up any stories or memories about Dad because Mom will say things like, “He was a nar-

cissist,” or “He was no fun,” etc. We remember him as a great provider and a decent, beloved person. Do you have any suggestions on how we can approach the subject with my mother? It’s so hurtful that we can’t talk about our father anymore now that she feels “free” and happy. -- MISSING OUR DAD DEAR MISSING: Yes. Tell your mother that you and your siblings prefer to remember your father as the decent, beloved, great provider he was to all of you. Tell her that you’re glad she’s “free” and “happy,” but the comments she’s making are unwelcome. And if she continues to make them, walk away or share your loving memories of your father when she’s not present. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 27-year-old single woman. I have been hanging out with a guy (“Connor”) for a few months. I enjoy his company, but I don’t have more than platonic feelings for him. I’m reading a book that says women my age are too picky and need to compromise. My question is, how long should I wait until I feel something more or that compromising just won’t work with this one? Am I too picky or do I need to realize I won’t be feeling anything more? -- SINGLE AND CONFUSED IN MINNESOTA DEAR CONFUSED: If you have nothing more than platonic feelings for Connor after seeing him for a few months, those feelings are not likely to change because the chemistry just isn’t there. What you need to do is be more selective about the authors whose books you choose, because someone who would advise women sight unseen that they’re “too picky” is speaking in dangerous generalities. Caveat emptor.

How to deal with debt workshop Oct. 26

Our Effingham parent-teacher organization will be sponsoring their very successful "Trunk or Treat" on Friday, Oct. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m., held in the school parking lot. For those un-familiar with how this works: on its simplest level all you have to do is show up with costumed kids in tow and walk from one amazingly decorated car to the next in the lot for the kids to collect their boodle; for those with a somewhat more developed sense of participation you can decorate your vehicle in suitable seasonal spooky themes, load it up with candy and goodies to hand out and wait for the parade of short witches, goblins and current kid’s characters to pass by and relieve you of said treats. Past years have proven this to be a wonderful safe way for your in house Halloween beasties to load up healthy sugars and food colorings; definitely one of childhood’s greatest pleasures. A word of advice to parents, bring your camera: past years have proven to be way more than slightly photogenic, there is just something wonderful about the look on the smallest children’s faces as the begin to discover that all they have to do is mosey up to some car and the funny looking folks around it will just hand over candy by the bag full. Ain’t life a wonder? A reminder that the White Mountain Waldorf School will be holding its annual Walk Through the


Grades on Nov. 1 from 8 to 9:30 a.m. Offering a quality choice in education for 27 years to its surrounding community the White Mountain Waldorf School hopes those with elementary and middle school aged children will be able to stop by and see what it is all about. For more information447-3168 or info@ Co-op Extension Service will be offering a workshop on the dangers of debt and how to deal with them on Oct. 26 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. The workshop is free and will cover the dangers inherent in assuming credit card debt and how to start dealing with the problem if it already exists in your family’s budget. The meeting will be held at Memorial Hospital Conference room in North Conway. For more information, pre-register by calling Ms. O’Coyne at 356-5461 ext. 2384. This will be the first of two weekends worth of fright, fear, and trepidation at Par Sem’s wonderful haunted house. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and continue to entice all fools for fear until 9:30 on both Friday and Saturday nights for this and next weekend. This isn’t about candy, it’s about setting yourself up for a bit ‘o’ fright, and possibly, for the willing, a good solid scare. see EFFINGHAM page 43

Caregivers support group starting Nov. 2

I use to work at a local “hometown” bank back in the 1980s as a customer service rep. On day an elderly lady sat down at my station and asked me what the current rate for a savings account was. “Five percent,” I said. Her eyes widened and in a thoroughly disgusted voice she retorted, “Five percent! At that rate I might as well stuff my money in a mattress.” Hmmmm. I can’t imagine what she would say today.

Kenneth Alfred Wiggin, 67, passed away on Monday, Sept. 5, 2011, in Boston, Mass., of complications following heart surgery. He and his wife, Karen Lawsing, lived in Jericho, Vt. Ken was born in North Conway on April 28, 1944, to Lillian Demers Wiggin and Kenneth E. Wiggin, both deceased. He was also predeceased by an infant daughter, Lynn Elizabeth; his first wife, Lea Bushway, of Lebanon; his daughter, Elizabeth "Boo"; and his sister, Linda L. Wiggin. Ken spent his childhood in Tamworth He grew up hiking, hunting, fishing and loving the great outdoors. He had a vast knowledge of outdoor lore and felt much satisfaction sharing his experiences with his son, Kenny. So much joy was found in tramping the hills and streams of Vermont and New Hampshire with his father, Uncle Harold and Kenny. To this day, Ken, Uncle Harold and Kenny swap stories and jokes amid much laughter, tears and loving embraces. Ken graduated from Kennett High School in Conway where he was on the cross-country team in the fall so he could get into shape for the ski team in the winter. He was also active in student government. Ken was the first Kennett High graduate to major in engineering at the University of New Hampshire. He graduated with a bachelor's of science in electrical engineering and began working at IBM Burlington a few days later. During his 43 and a half years at IBM as a semiconductor engineer, he worked as a manager, team leader, project leader and go-to guy. Ken established protocols and believed the task should be done in a scientific manner to validate and protect the process and the results. Guessing and hit/miss decision-making brought out the bear in him; he could be fearsome in defense of the integrity of the work product. He was made senior engineer in 1993 and was proud of his tenure at IBM, both in his role, the people he worked with and the products they all helped develop. He found being on the cutting edge of semi-conductor technology to be stimulating and fun. He loved his job and the people he worked with. A humble man, he praised others and thought himself lucky to be associated with, "the finest minds I know." He retired in July 2010, when he realized the Lord had just sent the third boat and he needed

to climb aboard. In January 2002, IBMers noted Ken walking with a bounce in his step, a smile on his face, and a gleam in his eye. They attributed his light heartedness to the "buzz" from his new BMW M5, named Barbie; actually, it was the "buzz" from his new romance. On Feb. 8, 2003, Ken married the love of his life, Karen Sue Lawsing. They embarked on a honeymoon that never ended, yet each felt they were already married forever. Ken and Karen were blissfully happy in their world, working, laughing, playing, singing, dancing, holding hands and loving together. Each had married their best friend and soul mate. Ken and Karen were active in Calvary Episcopal Church where they found fellowship, spiritual guidance and opportunities to help their neighbors and community. Ken spearheaded the monthly "Soup and Bread Suppers" for hungry people. He became the Senior Warden and guided the congregation through some difficult times. Ken had a fragile body and a mighty mind and spirit. Physically he suffered from several debilitating diseases. He was single-minded in his determination to hold their ravages at bay with diet, exercise, lifestyle and medication. Ken is admired as an honest, kind man who gave unsparingly of his time, energy, knowledge and experience. He was always willing to help a neighbor or those in need. Ken believed the task should be done to the best of his ability. Ken leaves behind his wife, Karen; his son, Kenneth A. Wiggin II, of Starksboro, Vt.; his stepchildren, Julia and Jesse Arbogast; his beloved sister, Neurine E. Wiggin, of Glencoe, Ill.; and his brother, Gary Wiggin, of Chocorua. Ken was much beloved by his family and friends and he will be deeply missed. Ken made the world a better place. May those of us touched by his spirit, cherish the legacy he gave us and follow his path. Visiting hours were on Saturday, Sept. 10, at Calvary Episcopal Church in Jericho. A funeral service followed in the church. Contributions in Ken's memory may be made to the Elizabeth Lynn Wiggin Memorial Fund, c/o The Merchants Bank, P.O. Box 1009, Burlington, VT, 05402. Arrangements are by Boucher and Pritchard Funeral Directors.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, October 22, 2011— Page 45



Lending lingo lexicon BY JASON ROBIE As I mentioned last week, a close friend is currently wading through the paperwork and inherent challenges of the home-buying process. When I first got started in real estate, it quickly became clear that those in the industry had a language all their own. A few weeks ago, we talked about some of those terms and acronyms and hopefully shed a little light on the subject for those of you dipping your toe in the market. Now that my friends are spending far more time with their mortgage broker than they are in the world of actual real estate, I think it is time to dig a little bit into the world of mortgage vocabulary. The only difference here is you can’t cheat with those little plastic red rulers! (Was that just me?) It goes without saying that you should never sign a contract without reading it fully. Signing a mortgage without having a good working knowledge of the terms and what everything means can be detrimental to your finances, your credit and even future investments. Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure that you know these terms and how they will apply to you. * Interest rate. The interest rate is the percentage of your loan that is added on every month. The percentage will vary according to the economy and will make a significant difference in your payments. Right now we are enjoying amazingly low interest rates and it is a great time to be getting financed. That said, let’s talk about the two different rates that you can choose from when getting your loan. * Fixed rate. A fixed rate will be an interest rate that stays at the same percentage throughout the entire period of your loan. These rates tend to be a smidgen higher than the variable rates, but you are given the peace of mind that the rate will never change. * Variable rate. A variable rate will change according to the overall economy. When the economy is on an upswing, investors demand higher yields, forcing lenders to raise mortgage rates. In a market downturn, rates tend to drop for consumers because of increased investor demand. A variable rate usually changes every year and adjusts according to a specific given range of percentages. Typically the lender will guarantee that the rate cannot change more than “X” percent at any given time. They will also only adjust your rate at certain intervals such as every three or five years. These options will all vary depending on the lender and their policies. * Principal. The principal is the actual amount of the loan. If you borrow $150,000, that is your principal. This is important to note since the amount of your monthly payment that will go toward your principal will vary greatly as your mortgage goes along. If your payment is $1,000, your first payment might apply $200.00 towards your principal and the rest towards interest. At that point, your principal is $149,800. * Escrow. This is similar to a savings account of your loan. Whatever you put in escrow will accumulate without paying directly into the loan. This is basically a safe-holding place for see ROBIE page 46

Character and charm Today’s Home of the Week, built in 1750, is a 16-room farmhouse with attached garage, set on five acres in Fryeburg.

FRYEBURG — "A very special property with loads of character, modernized with the comforts of today while preserving the ambiance and antique charm of yesterday." That's how listing agents Linda Walker and Bernadette Friberg, of Badger Realty, describe this Home of the Week. "Just think, George Washington was only 18 when this home was built," they add. Located 3.4 miles from Fryeburg Village and set on five peaceful acres on a country back road, the six-bedroom home has a spacious layout of rambling rooms all appointed with a relaxing decor of warm, soothing colors and attention to details that highlight the personality of each. A living room with fireplace and woodstove insert opens to a first-floor master and a dining room large enough for family and friends. The first floor also consists of a bright country kitchen, den, game room, laundry room, sun room, sauna room and a private picket-fenced backyard patio filled with sunlight and flowers. Upstairs are four additional bedrooms including full baths, a second kitchen and a new space that can be a private home office or apartment with separate entrance. see HOME page 48

The living room features a fireplace and woodstove insert.

money that you will eventually owe as part of your loan. Most banks will put money for taxes and insurance into an escrow account so they are more comfortable that those bills will get paid. * Title. A title will be what you get to your home after it is officially yours, stating that the property belongs to you. The reason the bank insists on doing a “title search” before closing, is to ensure that the property you are buying actually belongs to the person you are buying it from. Clearly an important detail! * Deed. The deed is a description of the property or “real estate” that you are buying or own. This will outline the exact dimensions of your land and any associated buildings or “improvements." The deed will also include any liens, encumbrances or right-of-ways that are included with the property. These items are vitally important to detail if you own or “share” a driveway and play important roles in property line disputes. * Equity. Equity is the amount of value your home has that is above the amount of your outstanding mortgage or “principal." If you have paid

off half of your mortgage (from above), all other things notwithstanding, you would have $75,000 worth of equity built up in your home. Factors like market shifts, pre-payments, home improvements, etc., all take steps towards increasing your equity. * Appraisal. An appraisal is an estimated value of what the home is worth according to the bank. In general there are three distinct values associated with your home. The assessment is the price that your town values your home. The appraisal is the price that your lender values your home. And the market value is what your real estate broker can likely sell your home for. Very often these three values are misunderstood. Unfortunately, the amount that you and I feel our homes are worth does not carry a whole lot of weight. I promise there will not be a test on these terms, but I am confident you will be better suited to make your way through the home buying process with a better understanding of them.

said they have baby boomer clients who already own or are looking to own an investment property, including 22 percent of agents who report that at least half of their boomer clients either own or are looking to own such properties. “The baby boomer generation has driven the U.S. economy for years, and like many Americans, they may be anxious about their next real estate decision,” said Jim Gillespie, CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate. “I know baby boomers are a very diverse group and cannot be described in generalities, but our survey clearly indicates that those boomers who are financially secure are actively seeking to buy their retirement home, or a second home, and they are taking advantage of the opportunities and value available in today’s market.” The survey also underscored that by dividing boomers, which account for 79 million Americans, into two age categories, a more dynamic picture of the real estate market emerges. Here are the additional findings: Second Homes Younger Baby Boomers (ages 47-55): More than one-third (34 percent) of agents say younger baby boomers (ages 47-55) are interested in purchasing a second home. Older Baby Boomers (ages 56-64): 22 percent say older baby boomers (ages 56-64) are interested in purchasing a second home. Looking For Larger 31 percent of respondents say that younger baby boomer clients are selling their current homes and looking for larger homes. 22 percent say older baby boomers (ages 56-64) are interested in purchasing a second home. Downsizing 80 percent of agents say that older baby boomers are more likely to want

Although the economy has impacted boomers, the reason for downsizing is not only about the desire to save money. According to the survey, 49 percent of agents say the primary reason boomers want to downsize is because they desire a simpler lifestyle, while only 28 percent said the leading reason boomers are downsizing is to save money. Single Family Home or Other Options Younger baby boomers are much more likely to prefer a single-family home than older baby boomers. For the older baby boomers, agents say about half are (47 percent) are looking for a townhome or condo. 27 percent of agents say their older boomer clients prefer an active adult community. Submitted by Karl Seibel of Coldwell Banker Wright Realty in Conway. Survey methodology: Coldwell Banker Real Estate conducted an online survey among 1,333 Coldwell Banker real estate professionals across the United States about housings trends for baby boomers. The survey was done between Sept. 6-15, 2011.

Existing-home sales off in September but higher than a year ago WASHINGTON — Existing-home sales were down in September on the heels of a strong gain in August, but remain well above a year ago, according to the National Association of Realtors. Total existing-home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, declined 3.0 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.91 million in September from an upwardly revised 5.06 million in August, but are 11.3 percent above the 4.41 million unit pace in September 2010. Lawrence Yun, chief economist for National Association of Realtors, said the market has been stable although at low levels, and there is plenty of room for improvement. “Existing-home sales have bounced around this year, staying relatively close to the current level in most months,” he said. “The irony is affordability conditions have improved to historic highs and more credit-worthy borrowers are trying to purchase homes, but the share of contract failures is double the level of September 2010. Even so, the volume of successful buyers is higher than a year ago and is remaining fairly stable – this speaks to an unfulfilled demand.” According to Freddie Mac, the national average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-

National Association of Realtors president Ron Phipps, broker-president of Phipps Realty in Warwick, R.I., said access to credit is unbalanced. “All year we’ve been discussing the fact that many credit-worthy home buyers are being denied mortgages,” he said. “On top of that, loan limits have been lowered, which means buyers of higher Open House Saturday, Oct. 2 • Noon to 3PM

priced homes, including many in more expensive housing markets, now have to pay a higher interest rate for a jumbo mortgage than buyers who can qualify for a conventional loan. We need to remove the roadblocks to a housing recovery – not place more obstacles in the way of financially qualified buyers.” All-cash sales accounted for 30 percent of purchase activity in September, up from 29 percent in August and 29 percent also in September 2010; investors make up the bulk of cash purchases. Investors purchased 19 percent of homes in September, down from 22 percent in August; they were 18 percent in September 2010. First-time buyers accounted for 32 percent of transactions in September, unchanged from August; they were also 32 percent in September 2010. The national median existing-home price for all housing types was $165,400 in September, down 3.5 percent from September 2010. Distressed homes — foreclosures and short sales typically sold at deep discounts — accounted for 30 percent of sales in September (18 percent were foreclosures and 12 percent were short sales), down from 31 percent in August and 35 percent in September 2010. see SALES page 50

Total housing inventory at the end of September declined 2.0 percent to 3.48 million existing homes available for sale, which represents an 8.5month supply at the current sales pace, compared with an 8.4-month supply in August. Single-family home sales fell 3.6 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.33 million in September from 4.49 million in August, but are 12.2 percent above the 3.86 million-unit level in September 2010. The median existing single-family home price was $165,600 in September, down 3.9 percent from a year ago. Existing condominium and co-op sales rose 1.8 percent a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 580,000 in September from 570,000 in August, and are 5.6 percent above the 549,000-unit pace one year ago. The median existing condo price was $163,800 in September, which is 1.0 percent below September 2010. Regionally, existing-home sales in the Northeast rose 2.6 percent to an annual level of 790,000 in September and are 6.8 percent above a year ago.

The median price in the South was $144,400, down 3.0 percent from September 2010. Existing-home sales in the West fell 8.8 percent to an annual pace of 1.14 million in September but are 10.7 percent higher than September 2010. The median price in the West was $207,400, which is 4.5 percent below a year ago. “The falloff in Western sales from a surge in August was expected because many lenders had lowered mortgage loan limits over concerns that sales wouldn’t close before the higher loan limits expired at the end of the September,” Yun said. “Given the concentration of higher cost housing in the West, particularly in California, many buyers were motivated to close in the months leading up to the changeover while they could still get low interest rates on conventional mortgages. Unless Congress reinstates the higher limits, the overall housing market recovery will be slower than it otherwise could be, and will hold back the broader economic recovery.” 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.
