Mormon ads may have influence in 2012

(NY Times) — After Sunday worship in recent months, Mormon bishops around the country gathered their congregations for an unusual PowerPoint presentation to unveil the church’s latest strategy for overcoming what it calls its “perception problem.” Top Mormon leaders had hired two big-name advertising agencies in 2009 to find out what Americans think of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Using focus groups and surveys, they found that Americans who had any opinion at all used adjectives that were downright negative: “secretive,” “cultish,” “sexist,” “controlling,” “pushy,” “anti-gay.” On seeing these results, some of those watching the presentation booed while others laughed, according to people at the meetings. But then they were told that the church was ready with a response: a multimilliondollar television, billboard and Internet advertising campaign that uses the tagline, “I’m a Mormon.” The campaign, which began last year but was recently extended to 21 media markets, features the personal stories of members who defy stereotyping, including a Hawaiian longboard surfing champion, a fashion designer and single father in New York City and a HaitianAmerican woman who is mayor of a small Utah city.

Egyptian Islamists rally to protest military rule

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

CAIRO (NY Times) — Tens of thousands of Islamists jammed Tahrir Square on Friday in the most significant challenge yet to the authority of Egypt’s military council that seized power nine months ago with the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak. The demonstration ended an uneasy truce between Egypt’s Islamists and its military, which had prevailed since Mubarak’s exit. The truce reached a break-

ing point after the military council spelled out for the first time its intention to claim a decisive role in Egyptian politics far into the future, even after parliamentary elections scheduled to begin later this month or a final handover of power to constitutional authorities some time in 2013 or beyond. It begins a faceoff between Egypt’s two most powerful institutions, its army and the once-outlawed Muslim Broth-

erhood, that left Egyptian liberals anxious and divided on the sidelines. “Each side is drawing lines in the sand over its future role in the political process,” said Emad Shahin, an Egyptian scholar at Notre Dame who was in Tahrir Square on Friday. “The military forces would like to secure an exit from the transitional period with some kind of assurances of its future role in the political scene,” he said.

European rift on bank’s role in debt relief FRANKFURT (NY Times) — The financial stability of Europe has come down to one institution, the European Central Bank, which is now under heavy new pressure to rescue the euro — or possibly see it collapse. José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Spain’s prime minister, on Thursday became the latest leader to demand that the bank find a solution to the euro crisis, saying that “this is what we transferred power for” and that it had to be a bank “that defends the common policy and its countries.”


Ads are the cave art of the 20th century.” —Marshall McLuhan

Zapatero made his unusually blunt statements on a day when markets sagged further and contagion continued its seemingly inexorable spread from the small economies on Europe’s periphery to Italy, Spain and even France at the core. Spain was forced Thursday to pay nearly 7 percent on an issue of 10-year debt, the highest since 1997, while investors demanded the largest premium for buying French as opposed to German debt in the decade-long history of the euro.

Obama’s trip sends message to Asian leaders

BALI, Indonesia (NY Times) — President Obama discussed maritime security, nuclear nonproliferation and disaster aid at an Asian summit on Friday, but just his presence on this resort island telegraphed his main message: that the United States is turning its focus to the booming Asia-Pacific region after a decade of preoccupation with wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Calling the region critical to economic growth and national security, Obama said, “I want everyone to know from the outset, my administration is committed to strengthening our ties with each country individually but also with the region’s institutions.” The American focus on Asia has been raising tensions with an ever more powerful China, which has been increasingly assertive in the region. On Friday, Prime Minister Wen Jiabao pushed back again, saying at the summit meeting that “outside forces should not, under any pretext” interfere in a regional fight over the control of the South China Sea.

Facebook helps catch robber SEABROOK -- A Tennessee man accused of robbing a bank in Seabrook was arrested, thanks in part to a posting on Facebook. William Winsbro, 42, was arrested in Hampton on Thursday and charged with felony bank robbery. Seabrook Police said about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Winsbro walked into the Sovereign Bank on Lafayette Road, handed a teller a note and demanded money. Police said that after getting some cash, he fled on foot. Detective Scott Mendes was among the officers who responded to the bank. Mendes snapped a picture of a surveillance photo with his smart phone and sent it to patrol cars. “This happened really quick,” Mendes said. “I put the picture out probably 10

minutes after the robbery.” About a half hour later, police said, they posted the picture on the department’s Facebook page, and tips started coming in. “We had information about two hours later who the person was that we were looking for,” Mendes said. Police said that among those who responded to the request for information was Winsbro’s girlfriend, who told them Winsbro had given her $800 and admitted that he was the man who pulled the bank robbery. Police said Winsbro also called them in an attempt to throw them off the trail. About 8:30 p.m. Thursday, police got a tip that Winsbro was hiding behind a trash bin at a Burger King on Route 1. That’s where police arrested him. — Courtesy WMUR

MANCHESTER — Members of Gary Johnson’s New Hampshirebased campaign staff said they quit Thursday night over disputes with the national organization. Turnover had been happening for a couple weeks, but former state communications director Matt Simon said he and others had to leave the Republican presidential candidate’s campaign, because they said the national campaign was too disorganized. The national campaign said that while it appreciates the work that the staffers put forth, this type of movement is typical during a big campaign.

“It really doesn’t mean anything in terms of Gov. Johnson’s focus and what we are trying to accomplish. Campaigns are inherently chaotic and we just had a bit of chaos,” said Johnson’s campaign communication director, Joe Hunter. Michele Bachmann’s New Hampshire team quit in October over what they called a lack of focus on New Hampshire. Newt Gingrich also lost the bulk of his New Hampshire team in the spring over what they said were disputes on what kind of campaign was being run. — Courtesy WMUR

Needham halfway to fund goal to build two Mali classrooms BY LLOYD JONES

O ver 50 YE A R S


CONWAY — In a little over a month Kate Needham, of Intervale, has been able to raise over half the funds need to build two additional classrooms at a school in Mali. She’s thrilled with the support she’d received from Mount Washington Valley and hopes to reach the goal of $12,000 sometime next month. “I have raised a little over $7,000 and about $5,500 left to raise,” Needham wrote in an e-mail. “I have a Flatbread fundraiser this Tuesday, which hopefully will draw in some people. My goal is by the end of December. Keep your fingers crossed!” Needham was back in the Mount Washington Valley Thursday as part of a two-week trip back to the United States. She has been in the West African country since July of 2010, serving as a literacy and education Peace Corps volunteer. Although the daughter of Claudia and Peter Needham is enjoying the experience, she looks forward to returning home permanently, but has a lot of work to do before next September. She is entrenched in her big service project — to build primary school classrooms in the town of Touna where she resides with about 8,000 people. “By constructing two classrooms I will be providing 120 students a place to learn,” Needham wrote by e-mail

empowerment conference, started the first-ever girls’ soccer team, along with other smaller projects.” Needham, in a visit to The Conway Daily Sun Thursday with her Dad, said the Flatbread fund-raiser was a complete surprise. “Henry Leavitt (age 14) who I used to babysit for about six years organized the whole thing,” she said. “I’m so proud of him. I know it’s short notice, but I hope people will come out on Tuesday.” Not only will Needham be part of the building process, she is being

counted on to be one of the financial fund-raisers for the classroom. She’s hoping her community in Mount Washington Valley can lend a financial hand to the villagers in Mali, her home away from home for the past 15 months. She’s written a letter asking for support. “Many of you might wonder why donate to an overseas cause when there are so many issues domestically,” Needham wrote. “The truth is the development of other countries actually is one of the best ways to improve the United State’s stability and prosperity. By helping develop

the third world we are creating future partners that will serve in solving global issues, spreading democracy, and they will join the fight for human rights. “These economic hard times are hitting the entire world,” she continued, “so whatever size donation you can make, every little bit counts. Touna and I appreciate any donations you can give. All donations are tax deductible. You can donate by visiting my Peace Corps fundraising page at index.cfm?shell=donate.contribute. donatenow&keyword=Needham.”

Needham teaches in a classroom currently packed by 123 students in the one room. “The two additional classes will make a world of difference to everyone,” she said. Time has flown by in Mali and her experience has been everything she hoped it would be. “It’s been that and then some,” she said. smiling. “I don’t think you can ever totally prepare yourself for an experience like this, but for me, it’s been wonderful.” Needham, who is fluent in French, has also picked up the native tongue of Bambara, and made countless friendships in Mali. “I’m sure they’ll last a lifetime,” she said. “This is an adventure I’ll never forget.” According to Elizabeth Chamberlain, public affairs specialist for the Peace Corps New England Regional Office, Needham is one of 46 New Hampshire residents currently serving in the Peace Corps. More than 1,513 Granite State residents have served in the Peace Corps since 1961. Over 2,312 Peace Corps volunteers have served in Mali since the program was established in 1971. Volunteers in this West African nation work in the areas of education, environmental and agricultural conservation, health and HIV/ AIDS awareness, water sanitation and hygiene promotion, and business development.

IN REVIEW Off the Wall

What would you do if you won the lottery? Some of the comments posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page this past week: Chris Brown, 72, of Lamplighters Trailer Park in Conway, stepped forward Monday afternoon to announce to state lottery officials that he was the lucky winner of Friday’s Tri-State Weekly Grand drawing. He opted to receive $1,000 a week, before taxes, for the next 20 years rather than a lump sum of $600,000. What would you do if you won the lottery? “Travel.” — Kendra Louise McLellan “I would go to the doctor’s.” — Doris Pinard “Pay off all my kids’ homes!” — Cheri Adams Perry “If I won, I’d buy quality health insurance for my family.” — John White “Fill the local food pantries that have such a high need right now.” — Sandra Parent “I’d pay off all my debts first, but I think that would be a common response in this economy.” — Nicole Marie Hutchins “What would I do? I wouldn’t tell anyone about it!” — Jane Dustin “Sponsor a family (or two) for Christmas at Angels and Elves!” — Linda Hall Little

“If I won the lottery I would move to North Conway!” — Karen Doiron “Get outta debt and buy a home. Then if there’s enough left, I’d like to help families in need like we are now.” — Shawna DeWitt “If I won I would share it with my girls, my sister and grandchildren.” — Paula Buswell “Fund a new newspaper.” — Dmitry Steezy “Congrats, neighbor — I live in Lamplighters too. I would pay off my bills, get health insurance and move out of Lamplighters and into a new home.” — Peggy Plummer Eldridge “Glad it was won by someone locally. Enjoy every penny.” — Jackie Monnier Olson “I would do something that made me happy.” — Judith Jarvis “I’d build a custom log home off the grid!” — Rene Ali “I would give away as much as possible (church, food pantry, etc.), and pay bills, then have fun!” — Kelli Quint Airey “I’d purchase a house outright and move back to Marblehead!” — Sandy Doliber Campbell

Tele-Talk Does the public have a right to know about the personal-time activities of local elected officials? School administrators are refusing to release information that could answer questions about alleged inappropriate behavior by Conway School Board member Randy Davison dating back as far as 2007. Five former school board members confirm they received complaints during their tenure about Davison for his tendency to lose his composure at school sporting events, but a formal request by The Conway Daily Sun for copies of those complaints was denied. The school's attorney, John Teague, said Davison's actions on the sidelines are part of his private life, not part of his role as board member, and therefore are not subject to public review. However, former board member Kelley Murphy said people in public positions "can't pick and choose what hat you're going to wear and when you're going to wear it. He's out there as a school board member the whole time." This week's question is: Does the public have a right to know about the personal-time activities of local elected officials? Call 733-5822 Saturday and Sunday and leave your comments on our machine. You may fax your responses to 356-8360 or e-mail them to Comments can also be posted on The Conway Daily Sun's Facebook page.

The Culprits Behind Today’s Polarized Politics If you are looking for someone to blame for the polarized nature of our politics today, here are two nominees: Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the political science establishment. Together they set out the argument for the situation we have in Washington — a Republican Party loaded with conservatives, a Democratic Party larded with liberals, and few in between. The result has been gridlock, rancor and a sense of despair if not hopelessness in the capital and across the country. We have a political landscape where it is possible to argue that the most conservative Democrats in Congress today are more liberal than the most liberal Republicans. There is virtually no overlap, no real party dissenters of the sort who were unacceptable to FDR, who wanted a party of ideological purity, and who were inexplicable to political scientists, who looked longingly at the ideologically disciplined parties in Europe and wondered why American parties so defied logic. But today, FDR and the political science establishment having had their way, the United States has its most ideologically aligned party system in modern history — and perhaps the biggest political crisis in modern history. Party caucuses always have reinforced party discipline, but for the first time both caucuses are enforcing ideological discipline as well. In the course of their work, lawmakers almost never encounter views that depart from their own, almost never form friendships with their political adversaries. If they don't practice ideological compromise inside their own parties, they are less likely — less able — to practice it on the floor of both houses of Congress. "We finally got ideological purity, and it's a disaster for the country," says former Gov. Angus King of Maine, an independent. "We have ideological gridlock. You can't solve problems this way." Indeed, the lack of a middle in the American political class is the American problem. The irony is that the American problem repeatedly has been held up as the American solution. The most prominent advocate for ideologically aligned parties was Roosevelt, who once told Sam Rosenman, a White House speechwriter and the first White House counsel, "We ought to have two real parties — one liberal and the other conservative." FDR set out to create just that with his effort to purge conservatives and New Deal foes from the Democratic Party. He singled out, among others, Walter F. George of Georgia, Ellison D. "Cotton Ed" Smith of South Carolina and Millard Tydings of Maryland, all of whom prevailed against the onslaught of White House opprobrium. Susan Dunn, a Williams College historian who has written the definitive account of the Roosevelt offensive, said the president's biggest blunder "was to undertake the purge in the absence of impressive challengers to conservative incumbents." That very likely is true. For whatever reason, the mushy party system prevailed -- and had unforeseen consequences even for Roosevelt. Many of the most ardent opponents of the New Deal turned out to be the most ardent supporters of the president's initiatives in foreign affairs, supporting Roosevelt on LendLease, so much so that party alignment was doomed as World War II approached. It gained new life a dozen years later, however, when the American Political Science Review pub-

lished a landmark article called "Toward a More Responsible Two-Party System," which argued that American parties needed "sufficient internal cohesion" and a "degree of unity within the parties" that they lacked at mid-century. At that time, the Democratic Party had such conservatives as Sen. Harry F. Byrd Sr. of Virginia, Sen. Strom Thurmond of South Carolina and a series of Southern committee chairmen. The Republicans Party had such liberals as Gov. Earl Warren of California, Rep. Clifford P. Case of New Jersey and Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. of Massachusetts. The political scientists' report echoed scholarly critiques dating back a half century, when important figures like Woodrow Wilson, then a prominent political scientist, and Herbert Croly, an important thinker in the Progressive movement and the co-founder of The New Republic, raised questions about the American party system. "However one may deplore that system, he must concede that it has displayed, if nothing else, a very impressive ability to survive," Austin Ranney, then a political scientist at the University of Illinois and later the chairman of the political science department at the University of California at Berkeley, wrote in a contemporary critique of the 1950 report. One reason the old system survived for so long is that the multiplicity of interests and ideologies inside American parties imposed the sorts of restraints on the majority that Americans liked, much like the checks and balances and separation of powers designed in the Constitution to protect the rights and viewpoints of the minority. Now we have just the kind of political-party system Roosevelt and the political scientists envisioned. We are living the future, and it does not work. "When the political scientists were thinking about these things in the 1950s, they were focusing on the good things the 'more responsible' party system might bring," says Larry M. Bartels, the co-director of Vanderbilt University's Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. "Now that we're living it, we see a lot of the bad consequences. Now political scientists are wringing their hands about the negative implications of polarization." A recent National Journal study showed that every Republican member of the Senate has a voting record to the right of every Democratic member of the Senate, and that only five House Republicans have a voting record to the left of Rep. Gene Taylor of Mississippi, the Democrat with the most conservative voting record. The journal has been conducting these studies since 1982. Only once before, in 1999, did the Senate have a profile like it does today. In an important retrospective on the 1950 political scientists' report published on its 50th anniversary, UCLA political scientist Barbara Sinclair argued that the modern parties "do represent a clearer policy message than they did 50 years ago." She's right. If you vote for a Republican today, you are very likely voting for a conservative, and if you vote for a Democrat you are very likely voting for a liberal. That's clear. One other thing also is clear: The political system is a lot worse off. David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He can be reached at dshribman@post-gazette. com.

Randy Davison is passionate about soccer To the editor: Are you kidding me? Really, is this what the school board spends its time on? As a parent of a son who is on the same team as Randy’s son, I am quite aware of his behavior. Do I find it obnoxious? Yes, some of the time I do. Is it unacceptable? No, not really. Randy Davison is passionate about soccer. He at times gets over excited during games and does get loud. So what? I just don’t sit anywhere near him. I would take his behavior over a parent who just doesn’t care, one who isn’t involved with their children. I’m sure Randy signed the same myopic document at the start of the season outlining the “appropriate behavior” during games. That we were not to criticize

the coach, the “appropriate” remarks and gestures we could make toward the opposing team. Is this how we teach our children to behave properly in public? Do we give them a list of “appropriate and inappropriate behavior” (remember to study it there will be a test). I don’t have to say anything to my son about Randy’s behavior, he gets it, but he also understands the passion behind it. It’s a learning situation. Does it matter to me that he is a school board member? No, not in the least. He is a parent first, and from what I see he is a passionate about that too. Personally, I will take passionate over appropriate any day. Joe Lentini Conway

I cited Obama to show ‘stimulus’ failed To the editor: A few of your correspondents seem to have trouble understanding the import of my letter of Nov. 11, which challenged Carol Shea-Porter’s claim that President Obama’s nearly $1 trillion “stimulus” “worked,” as she put it. They cite anecdotes and assertions to support her. I cited President Obama himself to show that the “stimulus” was a miserable failure. That is, I cited the claims his administration made to obtain passage of the “stimulus”: it’s claim of what the future would bring, with the “stimulus” and without.

I also cited what, in fact, that future actually brought: results far worse than those Mr. Obama said would obtain even without the “stimulus.” This is “working?” By the measure of success Mr. Obama himself proposed, the “stimulus” is incontovertably a failure. He set the parameters, not I. Of course, partisans now want to move the goalposts, and that’s fine; first, though, they should acknowledge that by Mr. Obama’s own scorecard, the “stimulus” failed. Therefore, Ms. SheaPorter’s claim is delusional. Maynard Thomson Freedom

FRYEBURG, Maine — It's one of the truisms of life — people can help heal themselves by doing good for others. The pain never goes away — but it can be less acutely felt. That's how it is for Rich and Brenda Leavitt, the latter of whom is general manager of Badger Realty of North Conway, and a mother of three, who was interviewed this week during National Diabetes Month. Residents of Fryeburg, the Leavitts lost their oldest of three children, Miranda, to unusual complications from Type 1, insulin-dependent diabetes on Feb. 17, 2007. She had been diagnosed at age 12, and was 22 at the time of her death. Through the help of friends, the Leavitts started the Miranda Fund for Diabetes a year later. It is administered by the White Mountain Community Health Center, and helps provide diabetes supplies and education for

low-income and uninsured individuals in Mount Washington Valley and western Maine. Leavitt recently spoke about diabetes in front of health classes at Kennett High, and has also met with U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, who are co-chairs of the Senate Diabetes Caucus. She was invited by the American Diabetes Association to attend an Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C., this past March. Ever motivated, Leavitt this past year wrote a book to help educate others about diabetes: “Through Miranda's Eyes: A Dictionary for a Life with Diabetes.” She gave a copy of the book to Sen. Shaheen, who held it in her hands and referred to the Leavitts' loss when she and Collins held a press conference earlier this month in Washington. At that press conference, Shaheen, whose granddaughter has Type 1 diabetes, and Collins advocated for the Food and Drug Administration to issue “clear and see next page

reasonable guidance” by the end of this year on the artificial pancreas, a device that could improve the lives of millions of Americans living with diabetes. The artificial pancreas combines medical devices that already exist — insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors — to control blood sugar levels automatically. For people living with diabetes, it would mean the end of burdensome frequent blood tests and injections. The new technology is awaiting FDA approval. “Many of us in Congress care deeply about Type 1 diabetes, and know how life-changing this technology could be for the millions of children and adults living with diabetes,” Shaheen said. “The FDA has promised to issue guidance for research by the end of this year. For the good of those families dealing with this disease, the FDA must honor that commitment.” Elevated blood sugar According to Leavitt, quoting information from the American Diabetes Association, one in 20 juvenile diabetics will die of low blood sugar. Miranda was originally from El Salvador. The Leavitts adopted her when she was 3 months old and brought her to their home in Maine. Hispanics, as well as Native Americans and African Americans, have higher rates of diabetes. Miranda's diabetes was diagnosed on the first day of middle school in Fryeburg. She had had better control in her early teen years, but then she developed complicating factors by age 17 which confounded everyone. She had bouts as high as 1500 and 1800, and once had a blood sugar of 800 even when she was under care in an ICU unit. A subsequent visit to the Boston Joslin Clinic led a doctor to tell her that she was not failing diabetes, but that diabetes was failing her, notes Leavitt. At the time of her death, Miranda's blood sugar reached an astounding 2200 compared to a normal blood sugar range of 70 to 130. In the interview this week, Leavitt underscored that many people can lead long, productive lives with diabetes. She stressed, however, that Miranda's case was more complicated than most. Not only was she what is known as a “brittle diabetic” — someone whose diabetes is very hard to control — Leavitt said her spirited, life-loving daughter also suffered from several conditions which exacerbated her care. She had hyperthyroid syndrome from the time of her diagnosis. She also had Celiac disease, further restricting her intake of food. And, it was believed that her death from high blood sugar may have been caused by a condition known as Glycogen Storage Disease, in which her liver released excess amounts of blood glucose into her blood stream all at once, overwhelming her body despite Miranda's following her diabetes care instructions. ‘Through Miranda’s Eyes’ It is the Leavitts' goal to help others by carrying on their daughter's quest to educate people about diabetes, a disease that affects 25.8 million people of all ages — which is 8.3 percent of the U.S. population, according to the National Department of Health and Human Services. Leavitt's book, “Through Miranda's Eyes: A Dictionary for a Life with Diabetes,” was produced through an on-line printing service by Leavitt and fellow Badger worker/graphic artist Debbie Anderson of Madison. They have distributed the first 100 copies, and now Leavitt is seeking a publisher to print more. “It's free. But if anyone wants to make a donation to the Miranda Fund, that's appreciated,” said Leavitt. As its title implies, the book helps explain the world of terms that all diabetics and their families must deal with once diagnosed. On the left-hand page throughout the book are listed such topics as blood sugar, diabetic ketoacidosis, carbohydrates, blood glucose monitoring and glucagon. On the right-hand page, using passages from her journal and notes written to her by Miranda over the years, the book personalizes those terms by sharing stories from Miranda's life. see next page

“Unless you live with diabetes or your life is somehow touched by it, none of us would know what many of these terms mean,” said Leavitt this week. “So, in the book, I help to explain them, and I relate it all to Miranda's life, too. So, that's why I wrote the book.” The entry from Miranda on Page 3 talks of what it's like to be a kid with diabetes: “I am no longer a normal kid,” wrote Miranda. “I have to prick my finger 5 to 6 times a day, measure some liquid in a syringe (what is a syringe anyway?), then I have to give myself shots in the stomach three times a day and to top it off, I am afraid of needles. I can't eat the same foods other kids my age eat and now my mom and dad have to worry about me all the time.” Impacts on families It also talks about the impact that diabetes has on other family members in a passage about when she first got the disease as a 12-year-old. “Miranda,” writes Leavitt in a section on blood sugar, “didn't even know what blood sugar was, let alone how to keep her blood sugar at the right levels. She knew too much insulin would result in low blood sugars and not enough insulin would result in high blood sugars, then adding food into the mix the equation changes. It was all so

confusing for someone her age. “One night,” writes Leavitt, “we were sitting down to have dinner and Miranda was very upset. She appeared to be very irritable and just was not happy. Her brother Derek, who was 7 at the time, looked across the table at Miranda and said, 'Miranda, go test your blood sugars, they must be high.' At that moment, our family all understood the definition of blood sugars! We also realized that this thing called diabetes was not just a condition that was borne by Miranda. It belonged to all of us — mom, dad, sister, brother, we were all in it together. We all owned the name 'diabetes' and it would be ours until there was a cure.” Simple wish Leavitt concludes the book with the following passage. “Miranda's wish was simple: To find a cure for diabetes! So,” writes Leavitt, “now I carry on her mission. I know Miranda is quietly by my side — walking with me to continue what she wanted to achieve: to help educate, assist and fund people with diabetes and ultimately find a cure.” For more information about the fund, write The Miranda Leavitt Diabetes Foundation, 298 White Mountain Highway, Conway, N.H. 03818, phone 447-8900; or call Leavitt at Badger Realty at 356-5757.


CONWAY — November is National Diabetes Month. Much progress has been made in treating diabetes. Healthy eating habits, exercise and control can help to reduce its impacts. Diabetes is a number of diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. Diabetes includes Type 1 and 2. Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age. However, it is most often diagnosed in children, adolescents, or young adults. Insulin is a hormone produced by special cells, called beta cells, in the pancreas. Insulin is needed to move blood sugar (glucose) into cells, where it is stored and later used for energy. In Type 1 diabetes, beta cells produce little or no insulin. Without enough insulin, glucose builds up in the bloodstream instead of going into the cells. The body is unable to use this glucose for energy. This leads to the symptoms of Type 1 diabetes. The exact cause of Type 1 diabetes is unknown. Most likely it is an autoimmune disorder. An infection or some other trigger causes the body to mistakenly attack the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. This kind of disorder can be passed down through families. While not everyone with Type

2 diabetes is overweight, obesity and lack of physical activity are two of the most common causes of this form of diabetes. It is also responsible for nearly 95 percent of diabetes cases in the United States, according to the Center for Disease Control. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and many more are unaware they are at high risk. Some groups have a higher risk for developing Type 2 diabetes than others. Type 2 diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, as well as the aged population. In Type 2 diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Warning signs These symptoms may be the first signs of Type 1 diabetes, or may occur when the blood sugar is high: Being very thirsty; feeling hungry; feeling tired or fatigued; having blurry eyesight; losing the feeling or feeling tingling in your feet; losing weight without trying; urinating more often, and slower healing of superficial wounds. For other people, these warning symptoms may be the first signs of Type 1 diabetes, or they may happen when the blood sugar is very high: Deep, rapid breathing; dry skin and mouth; flushed face; fruity breath odor; nausea or vomiting, inability to keep down fluids; and stomach pain.

Diabetes in children on the rise Type 2 diabetes has been described as a new epidemic in the American pediatric population that has been coincident with the overall 33 percent increase in diabetes incidence and prevalence seen during the past decade, according to American Diabetes Association president Dr. Francine Ratner Kaufman. “While there appears to be a host of potential genetic and environmental risk factors for insulin resistance and limited b-cell reserve, perhaps the most significant risk factor is obesity,” she writes on the ADA website. The following statistics are provided by the American Diabetes Association: • Among U.S. residents ages 65 and older, 10.9 million, or 26.9 percent, had diabetes in 2010. • About 215,000 people younger than 20 years had diabetes — Type 1 or Type 2 — in the United States in 2010. • About 1.9 million people ages 20 years or older were newly diagnosed with diabetes in 2010 in the United States. • From 2005 to 2008, based on fasting glucose or hemoglobin A1C levels, 35 percent of U.S. adults ages 20 years or older had pre-diabetes — 50 percent of adults ages 65 years or older. Applying this percentage to the entire U.S. population in 2010 yields an estimated 79 million American adults ages 20 years or older with pre-diabetes. see next page

Fund-raising efforts are ongoing to cover remaining improvements, to provide furnishings and to sustain operating expenses, according to Mother Seton House trustee Loretta Chauvin. “We wish to thank not only the directors of both charitable foundations, but also all of the faithful supporters and volunteers who have made this possible,” said Chauvin. Ham Foundation executive director Robert J. Murphy said that the foundation is “happy to help support the Mother Seton House and its mission.” see MOTHER SETON page 20

Funding bill clears the way for opening of Berlin prison BERLIN — The newly constructed federal prison that has sat empty for months is slated to open soon in the wake of a funding bill that make became law this week. That’s according to a statement from Senator Jeanne Shaheen. “After a long and unnecessary wait,” she said, “Berlin prison will finally get the funds it needs to open.” Congress passed and President Obama signed the 2012 Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill on Thursday, which included $6.5 billion for the Bureau of Prisons. The bill specifically prioritizes funding for the three prisons awaiting funding. One of them is the Berlin prison. Residents across the North Country have been anxiously waiting to hear about the facility, which is expected to bring hundreds of direct jobs and provide economic opportunities far beyond its walls. “This is excellent news for the North Country and for New Hampshire,” Shaheen said. “The prison will provide a $40 million economic boost to a community that really needs it, and the Bureau of Prisons has said it will begin the hiring process within weeks. I am glad that Democrats and Republicans, the Congress and the White House, were all able to come together in a bipartisan way to pass this bill and get people back to work in New Hampshire.” The 1,280-bed, medium-security federal prison was completed in 2010 at a total cost of $276 million. It sat vacant after its completion because of budget cuts.

took a right up Valley Road and in almost two miles, just before reaching Little Dan Hole Pond, we took a right on Bents Road. There is one driveway on the right after turning onto Bents Road. You continue beyond that, and take the next right, 50 feet into a gate for the trailhead. Don’t block the gate. There is a gravel pit further in, owned by Terrace Pines Campground, just up Bents Road. Mark and Jane Wright of Terrace Pines Campground located on Dan Hole Pond, also own the lower part of Sentinel Mountain located in Center Ossipee. Beyond the town line, the upper slopes and summit are owned by Camp Merrowvista of Center Tuftonboro. Both camps welcome hikers, and expect the land and people met there to be treated

respectfully. Recently, new signs on the trail have made the hike straightforward. We didn’t start up until 3:30 p.m. We wore hunter orange vests, but didn’t see any hunters. The trail went from one old logging road to another, but was easy to follow, with paint marks on trees. Then at a sign, it turned sharp left up the final peak. That was one steep third of a mile. The rocky trail wound up through a shady hemlock forest, hills in the Ossipee Range growing more visible behind us to the north. Soon we could see the summit ledge ahead, and together we walked out on the top. The views south and west opened up, with Alton Bay visible below the Belknap Range to the west. Dan Hole Pond spread east to west directly below us. Climbing up on a big glacial

erratic sitting on the ledge, we could see a snow dotted Mount Washington to the north. It was mostly cloudy with a slight fall chill in the waning day. We spent a good half hour or more up there, to get the most of this late afternoon foray in the mountains. We knew that we had headlamps for the descent if necessary. On the way down, although we took our time, we didn’t need the headlamps. But near the bottom we decided to turn one on and swing it with our stride, just in case a hunter at the end of his day heard us rustling through the dead leaves. Later I talked to Mark Wright, who said that there had been few hunters so far, as warm weather had kept the deer stationary and hidden. But the temperature would soon be dropping.

I don’t know of any construction material characteristics for its creamy white wood, so don’t welcome it in the woodlot. It is just a tree species that surmounted its pestilence and still remains with us, even if we don’t notice it much beyond roadside ditches and damp places. For me, it simply reflects that moisture is present. There is some wildlife food value in its roundish, flattened seeds, called samaras. If one clicks on “Valley Forge elms” on the Internet search engines, you will find considerable efforts to produce hybrid strains for this species. The various elm species native to Asia are highly resistant to the Dutch Elm disease, being able to manufacture chemicals which prevent the spores from germinating or gaining a stronghold in the inner bark of their trees. And we planted one such “Liberty Elm” for my deceased brother Steve as a remembrance.

These asymmetrical shapes have serrated margins, and with prominent veins straight out to these saw-toothed edges. I have a lot of fast growing, elm saplings on this property, and their scraggly, furrowed, rough bark is another testimony in their identification. I am hanging bird feeders in one dead elm outside my window, and I am surprised the birds have no problem navigating the remaining small, twisted branches all up and down this unappealing straight trunk while accessing the crossbar nailed on it. There are so many unkempt dead branchlets, that I would think any bird would find movement difficult through these twisted twigs. A kinky looking tree; but as I look up, I note you would probably want an old snag as this for the feeding station. The American elm species thus continues to exist, but has not much value other than the one that previously existed in our New England towns. It is not good firewood, because it stinks when it is burned. Twisted fibers won’t

Valley Angler –––––

Merry Gallagher, from Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, gave a very interesting PowerPoint presentation on her work in Maine. John Magee, from New Hampshire Fish and Game and Jim McCartney spoke on their work on the Nash Stream Project in New Hampshire. There was quite a lot of discussion on the effect that Hurricane Irene had on all of the ongoing projects. As you might expect in some cases the storm did away with a lot of the improvements that had been put in place. One of the most common problems encountered in any stream restoration is culverts. In many cases culverts block the migration of spawning trout. In one local stream, that is part of the restoration project, there were three culverts down stream blocking access for trout to return to their traditional spawning grounds. It was believed that the resident trout population had over time simply lost their instinct to migrate. There is no real need for culverts to be the problem that they are. Most of the time culverts are put in place with little or no see next page

Joining Pierson for this Christmas concert will be Shawn Nadeau on bass and Matt Bowman on drums. In

In truth there may well be solutions to the problem that can be put in place at the same cost and with little more effort on the part of the builder. This information is readily available to private landowners as well as local road agents and the Department of Transportation. Anyone considering placing a culvert should take the time to acquire the appropriate information before starting construction. The National Resources Conservation Service (www.nh.nrcs. is a good place to start. The

Bowman is owner-operator of White Mountain Cafe and, in addition to his regular appearances with Heather, is a regular member of Jon Sarty’s White Mountain Boys. The trio will perform the entirety of the Charlie Brown Christmas album as recorded by the Vince Guaraldi Trio, as well as other well-known and popular Christmas tunes.

There was a great deal of concern that after Irene. A great many well meaning individuals have done a great deal of harm to our streams and rivers in an attempt to contain future flooding. My personal observation is that a lot of these attempts are going to come back to haunt us when the next big flood occurs. See you on the river.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re excited to grow into a role and to know what it feels like to create a certain dynamic in your world. Your open mind will allow for fresh influences, especially through reading. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Because you’re ready to receive and appreciate some goodness from a bountiful universe, you’ll receive prosperity from a source other than expected. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your interests are varied, which allows you to find a point of connection with nearly everyone you meet. You’ll glide through conversations and win the admiration of those who would like to be as outgoing as you are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Show your enthusiasm, and you can’t go wrong. Better to be too effusive than too reserved. Most people would like to be more demonstrative but don’t know how. You’ll teach them with your confidence. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will know immediately what needs to be communicated in a given situation, but it’s best to pause and get the most positive and/or discreet phraseology. Your message may need to be softened. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 19). Your personal growth is accelerated by a close bond with a loved one. Your pace will quicken in career and social realms. You’ll gain valuable insight and make new friends at meet-ups and discussion groups. This summer, you’ll replace a vehicle and/or spruce up your home with up-to-the-moment touches. Libra and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 4, 39, 15 and 28.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because you are solution-oriented, you’ll find opportunities. Getting to the bottom of problems and taking care of the details that will prevent future mishaps will be challenging and rewarding work. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You do not nonchalantly accept responsibility. You realize that when you give your word, you’ll have to follow through in some way with your time, energy and attention. Those are precious commodities, so guard them well. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Emotions bottled up inside you take on an energy of their own. They want to be expressed. They might even arrange for a bit of havoc in your life to create a scenario in which they will finally be released. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You wanted motivation, and now you’ll get it, so see it in a positive light. The one who lights a fire under you is on your side, though it may not feel like that as the proverbial match strikes. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may not feel quite as filled with purpose as you did yesterday. Start spreading the word about what you wish would happen to you. You’ll meet the right people to teach you what you need to know. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be doing what you love to do. Perhaps you won’t be doing it for as long as you would like, but that will come in time. Build on the moments of bliss, and they will get longer. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You recognize that there is more than one right way to make connections, and you’re in the mood to explore new approaches. Your personal life gets interesting as you follow a friend’s lead.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, November 19, 2011— Page 31

Today is Saturday, Nov. 19, the 323rd day of 2011. There are 42 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address as he dedicated a national cemetery at the site of the Civil War battlefield in Pennsylvania. On this date: In 1600, King Charles I of England was born in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. In 1794, the United States and Britain signed Jay’s Treaty, which resolved some issues left over from the Revolutionary War. In 1831, the 20th president of the United States, James Garfield, was born in Orange Township, Ohio. In 1919, the Senate rejected the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY’) by a vote of 55 in favor, 39 against, short of the two-thirds majority needed for ratification. In 1942, during World War II, Russian forces launched their winter offensive against the Germans along the Don front. In 1959, Ford Motor Co. announced it was halting production of the unpopular Edsel. In 1969, Apollo 12 astronauts Charles Conrad and Alan Bean made the second manned landing on the moon. In 1977, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat became the first Arab leader to visit Israel. In 1985, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev met for the first time as they began their summit in Geneva. In 1990, the pop duo Milli Vanilli were stripped of their Grammy Award because other singers had lent their voices to the “Girl You Know It’s True” album. One year ago: President Barack Obama, attending a NATO summit in Lisbon, Portugal, won an agreement to build a missile shield over Europe, a victory that risked further aggravating Russia. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Alan Young is 92. Talk show host Larry King is 78. Talk show host Dick Cavett is 75. Singer Pete Moore (Smokey Robinson and the Miracles) is 72. Actor Dan Haggerty is 70. Fashion designer Calvin Klein is 69. Sportscaster Ahmad Rashad is 62. Actor Robert Beltran is 58. Actress Kathleen Quinlan is 57. Actress Glynnis O’Connor is 56. Newscaster Ann Curry is 55. Former NASA astronaut Eileen Collins is 55. Actress Allison Janney is 52. Rock musician Matt Sorum is 51. Actress Meg Ryan is 50. Actress-director Jodie Foster is 49. Actress Terry Farrell is 48. Actor Jason Scott Lee is 45. Olympic gold medal runner Gail Devers is 45. Actress Erika Alexander is 42. Rock musician Travis McNabb is 42. Singer Tony Rich is 40. Dancer-choreographer Savion Glover is 38. Country musician Chad Jeffers is 36. Rhythm-and-blues singer Tamika Scott (Xscape) is 36. Rhythmand-blues singer Lil’ Mo is 34. Olympic gold medal gymnast Kerri Strug is 34.

DEAR ABBY: My dad and I raise rabbits. My friend “Zoe” has always wanted one. Recently one of our rabbits had a litter, and Zoe fell in love with one in particular. Her birthday is coming soon, and I’m thinking about giving her this rabbit as a present. I would also include several days’ worth of food. My problem is, I don’t know if I would be imposing on her parents. Should I ask them first? And do you think I should also include a cage? -- KENTUCKY BUNNY-LOVER DEAR BUNNY-LOVER: You should never give a live animal as a gift unless you’re positive that the creature will be welcomed and have a good home. That’s why it’s important to get the approval of Zoe’s parents before giving her the rabbit. Be sure the family knows everything they need to about successfully raising a rabbit, including its behavior and the space requirements for exercise. You’ll be doing them -- and the bunny -- a favor if you do. If Zoe’s parents approve of the gift, it would be generous to include the cage. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-year-old guy. I have been growing my hair out for a long time, and my bangs are now down to my nose. It looks and feels really cool. My problem is, now that I’m in high school, adults get on my case about my hair. I can hardly go one day without some teacher yelling at me to “get your hair out of your eyes!” I flip it to the side, but they still seem annoyed. I’m tired of hearing about it. One day, five different teachers all got mad about it. What can I say to stop people from freaking out over my hair? -- JOSH IN MICHIGAN DEAR JOSH: Is this the only problem you’re having with the teachers? Their concern may be that your hair is now so

long you can no longer see the blackboard. And because they can’t see your eyes, they may be unable to gauge whether you’re “getting” the lesson they’re trying to convey. While you and I may think that what’s inside your head is more important than what’s on it, if several teachers have been commenting on your hair, it’s time to do something about it. DEAR ABBY: From time to time you have printed letters in your column from people who don’t know what to do with their lives. I’m an intelligent woman in my mid-20s. I did well in high school, quickly selected a major in college, excelled there, graduated and found a job in my field. I worked for three years, and then was let go. As you can imagine, I was devastated. My plans for my life had fallen through. That was several months ago. Since then, I have taken time to explore other options and interests. I may even head back to school, something I have wanted to do because I love to learn. I have also focused more on my social life and am in the first serious romantic relationship of my life. To those of your readers who are unsure: Understand that life doesn’t always go according to plan, but there is nothing wrong with that. -- MOVING ON IN UTAH DEAR MOVING ON: I agree -- you are an intelligent young woman, and an emotionally healthy one as well. You have been able to recognize the positive in what many people consider a negative situation. Your letter illustrates that when one door closes, another one opens. Your attitude will serve you well in life.

Free Thanksgiving dinners planned

Some days when things were going wrong, I would whine to my mother about some problem or other I was dealing with. Her favorite response to me was, “Remember, there’s always someone out there with bigger problems than yours.” I suppose that was her way of reminding me that I had a great deal to be thankful for. As we approach the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I hope each of you can find something in your life to be grateful for. Happy Thanksgiving! One thing we can all be thankful for are the amazing volunteers at the Conway American Legion. They will be holding their annual Thanksgiving Day Dinner at the legion hall on Tasker Hill Road in Conway on Thursday, Nov. 24, at noon.

Richard R. St. Laurent Richard R. St. Laurent, 65, of Albany died Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011 at the Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. Born in Somersworth, the son of Romeo and Alice (Gosselin) St. Laurent, he had lived in Somersworth most of his life prior to moving to Albany in 2006. Dick graduated from Somersworth High School, Class of 1964 and had worked for Country Kitchen many years delivering bread. Later he sold wine and spirits for Martignetti out of Manchester, Premier Beverage in Florida and Horizon Beverage out of Concord. He was an avid golfer and football fan. The family includes his wife, Charlene (Quint) St. Laurent, of Albany; a stepdaughter, Bridgette Patch and her fiance, Derek Bolduc, of Freedom; a stepson, Alan Patch of Sweden, Maine; a granddaughter, Madison Bolduc, of Freedom; a sister, Connie Kretschmar and her husband, Arnold, of Somersworth; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by a brother, Ronald St. Laurent, in 2006.

Calling hours will be held Monday, Nov. 21, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Furber and White Funeral Home in North Conway. Donations may be sent to the Conway Area Humane Society, P.O. Box 260, Conway, NH, 03818.

Joseph Norman Wight Family and friends grieve the loss of Joseph Norman Wight, of Portland, Maine, formerly of Brookline, Mass. and Milton, Mass., who died Nov. 16, 2011 at Gosnell Memorial House in Scarborough, Maine from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease. He was the son of Harold and Violet Wight, brother of Harold Wight and husband of Nancy Vallaincourt all of whom predeceased him. His children are Joseph, and his wife, Ann, of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, Garry and his wife, Michelle, of Dallas, Texas, and Wendy Wight Schmidt and husband, Steve, of Westborough, Mass. He leaves his wife, Karla Lothrop Williams, 10 grandchildren, niece and nephew, Carol and Dana Wight and many Hingston/Miller and Wight cousins. A graduate of Brookline High and Northeastern University, he played several sports but loved baseball and played in the Boston Park League (“Joe Wight the ballgame” which he called himself as a small boy). As a father, he was a coach of his two sons in Little League, Babe Ruth and many tournament teams for 15 years. He was a First Lieutenant with the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Gordon for two years after graduation from Northeastern in 1956. As a First Lieutenant in the Signal Corps, he was made company commander in his early 20s. He was admired for treating his men with fairness and respect. Later, he relished his role as Aidede-Camp and was most endeared by General Gibbs. He lived with his family in Milton, Mass. Where he served as a Town meeting member. He worked hard, establishing his own company, Plastic Sales Incorporated. He did this so that he could control his schedule. Prior to this, he was the national sales manager for Roland Products that required traveling across the country every week leaving Monday morning and returning home Friday afternoon. His son Garry at 6 months old didn’t recognize him

one Friday night, and he quit his job three days later. He formed Plastic Sales Inc., that Monday. This decision allowed him to be a dedicated father to his children. As a salesman, he was a natural. He was loved for his dancing Irish eyes, his interest and curiousity in others his generosity, sense of humor and affection and his “gift of gab and he was seldom in a bad mood, and always seemed to light up every room he entered. He always had a “can do” attitude when It came to fixing something around the house. He loved to tell stories about his childhood adventures in Brookline and his short stint in the army. He was proud of the Nemo II, the 18 foot “cabin cruiser” he built in his parents’ Brookline garage in the late 1950s. He and his buddies spent many a day and night fishing and cruising Boston Harbor in the 1960s and 1970s. In the 80’s, Nemo was moved to Conway Lake where she was used to fish for small mouth bass. Garry, Wendy and Joseph Jr. learned how to waterski behind her. She was retired when his granddaughter, Sydney was taken for a ride in the summer of 1996. He wanted to see four generations aboard his boat. Visiting hours will be held in the Bell-O’Dea Funeral Home at 376 Washington Street in Brookline on Sunday from 6 to 9 p.m. and again on Monday from 9 to 10:15 a.m. before leaving in procession to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 15 St. Paul Street in Brookline where his funeral service will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. Interment Walnut Hills Cemetery. The family thanks the caring and skillful staff at South Portland Nursing Home and Hospice of Southern Maine and the Alzheimer’s support groups which helped Karla to help Joe. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to either the Hospice of Southern Maine or the Alzheimer’s Assoc. of Maine For guestbook and directions www.

Forest Service seeking volunteers to help staff Saco Ranger Station CONWAY — The U.S. Forest Service is looking for volunteers to help at the Saco Ranger Station on the Kancamagus Scenic Byway in Conway. The forest is seeking volunteers willing to provide customer service, greeting visitors and responding to phone inquiries at the Saco Ranger Station. The visitor center is a destination for visitors seeking informa-

tion about all the National Forest has to offer. Some may be looking for hiking opportunities or a scenic drive, while others may hope to find that pristine campsite. Forest Service volunteers can enjoy work that fits their interests and schedule. Many individuals have found that their volunteer experience has guided them toward job interests and pos-

sible careers. Retirees or others with skills to share often find that a volunteer position provides them with a nice change of pace. If you are interested in helping provide customer service to visitors to the White Mountain National Forest, contact the Saco Ranger District at: (603) 447-5448 ext. 109 to schedule an appointment to learn more about this opportunity.

Waldorf School’s Winter Family Craft Faire is today Animal shelter selling wreaths and trees

At the Wednesday Selectmen’s meeting, Officer Santuccio came by to discuss the patrols the sheriff ’s office has been engaged in for the last few months. The discussion with Chief Solomon of the Conway Fire Department was tabled for next week. Please note the office will be closed on Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday. Waldorf School: Please remember the 25th annual Winter Family Craft Faire is today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s free and it’s fun! Gibson Center: The Center will be closed Nov.24 and 25 for Thanksgiving. UNH Extension: On Thursday, Dec. 8 at the Moultonborough Library from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Russ Norton and Kelly McAdam will present “Getting Started for the Small and Beginning Farmer.” Please register by calling 447-3834 by Monday, Dec. 5. There is a craft fair at the new Mountain View Community, 93 Water Village Road in Ossipee. All proceeds go to the community for the residents. Stop by and see what you can get for holiday gifts, and take a tour of the new facility. The Kiwanis Club’s annual program, Angels and Elves, has opened at Settlers' Corner next to Staples. They are there Monday, Wednesday and Friday from noon to 6 p.m. Starting Nov. 28, the hours will be expanded to every day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Those who wish to sponsor a child can stop in at the “headhunters” or call 356-8710. If you wish to donate, mail a donation to Angels and Elves, P.O. Box 3053, North Conway, NH 03860. The Animal Rescue League of NH-North will be selling wreaths and trees beginning Nov. 25 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. They will be open on Dec. 24 until noon. Stop by at the Conway Shelter/Harrison House Resale Shop on East Main Street in Conway. As the weather gets colder, remember there is help out there for those in need of fuel and electrical assistance. Call 323-7400 for information. Last Friday I took an energy tour with Carroll County United. Colleen Cormack was on the tour as well. It was quite informative and educational. We stopped at Tuftonboro to see their wood pellet boiler operation and at Winnisquam High School to see their wood chip boiler system. There’s much to be said for this heating system in terms of economy and ecology. On Thursday, there was another “Occupy Conway” event on Routes 16 and 153. About 15 people were on each of the four corners. Though I couldn’t see everyone, I did see Andy Davis, the organizer, Steve Knox and Robert Young from Albany. Congratulations to Gregg and Sharon Quint on the birth of their new grandchild, Tristan Jon Westover, born to Jennifer Shaw and Earl Westover of Tamworth. Tristan has two sisters, Christa and Olivia and a brother Cole. I’m beginning to believe that winter is indeed on its way. Though the days are still comfortable, the nights are getting chilly. Still, there’s time to get out there and enjoy yourselves. Remember the holidays are only a month away. Have a great week.

Cozy-up your home for the holidays BY JASON ROBIE With the holiday season rapidly approaching, many of us are sure to be on the hook for hosting some sort of gathering in our homes. While many of you might agree there is nothing more fun than a houseful of guests, there are still a few tips and tricks that will ensure your visitors feel warm and welcome. Not unlike the staging process for showing a home for sale, the goal is to engage all of the senses and create an environment where people feel at “home." Real estate professionals and party hosts alike would agree that one’s sense of smell is the first place you want to make an impression. And you want it to be a good one! From top-to-bottom you should spend some time giving your whole house a good “once-over” cleaning. This can eliminate odors from previous cooking accidents, pet smells and just day-to-day living. Since we are on a nice string of relatively warm weather, open up the doors and windows for a couple hours and do your cleaning then. It will help air out the home and whisk in some fresh air, creating a clean slate on which to build your aroma. Candles, fresh flowers, essential oils, herb bundles, potpourri and even a crackling fire can all play important roles in creating a pleasant aroma. If you will be cooking turkey, pies or other baked goods, this will also help create that “homey” feeling we are going for. They say that our sense of smell creates the most longlasting memories. If you have good memories of Thanksgiving dinner at grandma’s or a big family feast with all the relatives, you can see why the smell of fresh baked bread or a yummy apple pie would bring about good feelings and help create an overall calming effect. Of course, the items you baked will warm your guests and fill their bellies. Job well done. Texture and sight are both key ingredients as well. Having a fresh bowl of fruit or a dish of candy or nuts will encourage visitors to start eating and that alone will make them more comfortable. Afghans, fleece blankets and pillows all combine to make your living area more welcoming and suitable for sitting and relaxing. If you take the time to remove some of the clutter around your home, which you have heard us say a hundred times, this will help the buyer envision their own items around your home and will help the holiday guest feel more at home. Candles certainly help with the scent, but the glow of the flame has been associated with the safety of home since our ancestors discovered it. Lighting in general is a big part of this, and utilizing lamps on tables and bookshelves is always a softer and warmer way to light a room than overhead lights. You also have the ability to highlight certain areas of your home with lighting. Adding a reading lamp to the end of a couch will inevitably draw someone to that spot with a book or magazine. Bringing plants and flowers into the mix not only brings “life” into your home but also encourages the use of natural lighting and windows to make use of what little daylight we have! There have been numerous books written on the effect colors have on our mood. Do a little research and see if you can incorporate the “warm” and “inviting” colors into your room through lighting, plants or even paint. see ROBIE page 46

Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is a tool that consumers can use as a starting point to compare loan programs. However, it's important to keep in mind that APR is not a perfect system, and not all lenders calculate APR in the same way. While the Federal Truth-inLending Act does require any mortgage broker or lender to disclose APR to the consumer, there is no rule written in stone for calculating this number that each and every lender agrees upon. The point of calculating APR is to let the consumer know what the actual cost of their financing is in the form of a yearly rate. APR factors in certain closing costs and fees associated with the loan, and spreads this total over the life of the loan along with the actual note rate. The objective is to give the consumer a clearer picture of what their actual costs are, and this inhibits lenders from hiding fees or upfront costs behind low interest rates in their advertising. Fees that are generally included in the APR calculation are points, prepaid interest, loan processing fees, underwriting fees, document preparation fees, and private mortgage insurance. On occasion, lenders will include a loan application fee and/or credit life insurance. Fees that are normally not included in the APR calculation are fees

The sounds of your home may often be out of your control. If you put yourself in the main living area of your home, just sit in silence for a few minutes and get a sense of what is going on. Often there are big changes that need to be made such as that refrigerator that rattles or a heating system that makes lots of noise, but there are many things that can be adjusted without breaking the bank. If you live near a busy street or are surrounded by lots of outside noise, some sort of white noise might be just the thing. A wind chime that you can hear indoors or even a tabletop water fountain or fish tank can create a serene environment regardless of what is happen-

from title, escrow, attorney, notary, document preparation, home inspection, recording, transfer taxes, credit report and appraisal. Remember, all lenders do not perform the calculation the same way. Moreover, APR does not consider the possibility of making pre-payments, moving or refinancing. Unless the interest rate is tied to a fixed instrument, APR is even more confusing. Calculating APRs on adjustable rate and balloon mortgages is more complex because we really have no way of knowing what future rates will be. If all lenders calculated APR the same way, we could make easy comparisons when deciding on what loan program to go with. Since they don't, the consumer should know that APR is simply a starting point for comparison. The more important things to consider are how long the loan is needed. What are the long-term goals of the borrower? If the home buyer only expects to stay in the home for five years, there's not a lot of sense in looking exclusively at 30-year fixed rates because the APR seems more reasonable. If a young couple is buying a home, knowing they will refinance in eight years to pay for their son's college education, then once again, APR is not a realistic factor to take into consideration.

You can create a myriad of “themes” by your choice of music and this can play a large role in setting the mood for your guests.

These other small steps will simply accentuate the work you have done to make your house a home and hopefully be as valuable to you as they will be to your guests.

pared to answer questions about APR once the lender provides the Truth-in-Lending Disclosure Statement (Reg Z), such as why the “amount financed” listed in Box C is not the same as the actual loan amount, and why the APR is higher than the interest rate on the loan in most cases. The consumer will get a clear definition about the fees associated with their loan in the goodfaith estimate, but the Truth-in-Lending Disclosure is often an area that is confusing to the borrower.

WASHINGTON — Builder confidence in the market for newly built, single-family homes rose by three points to 20 on the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) for November, released this week. The gain builds on a revised threepoint increase in October, and brings the confidence gauge to its highest level since May of 2010. “While this second solid monthly gain on the builder confidence scale is encouraging, the overall measure remains quite low due to the many challenges that home building continues to face with regard to the high number of foreclosures, the difficulties of obtaining construction financing and accurate appraisals, and the restrictive lending environment that is discouraging potential buyers,” said Bob Nielsen, National Association of Home Builders' chairman and a home builder from Reno, Nev. “These problems must be addressed so that housing can contribute to economic and job growth the way it has in the past.” “This second consecutive gain in

the HMI is evidence that well-qualified buyers in select areas are being tempted back into the market by today’s extremely favorable mortgage rates and prices,” said National Association of Home Builders' chief economist David Crowe. “We are anticipating further, gradual gains in the builder confidence gauge heading into 2012 due to these pockets of improving conditions that are slowly spreading.” Derived from a monthly survey that National Association of Home Builders has been conducting for more than 20 years, the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months as “good,” “fair” or “poor.” The survey also asks builders to rate traffic of prospective buyers as “high to very high,” “average” or “low to very low.” Scores from each component are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where any number over 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as good than poor.

Home builders applaud Congress for restoring higher FHA loan limits WASHINGTON — The National Association of Home Builders this week applauded Congress for reinstating for another two years the higher conforming loan limits for the Federal Housing Administration, noting that this is an important step to help mend the struggling housing market. “We commend congressional leaders in both parties and each chamber of Congress for taking this action to boost overall mortgage liquidity in the marketplace, create jobs, and provide home owners

and home buyers with safe and affordable financing,” said National Association of Home Builders' chairman Bob Nielsen, a home builder from Reno, Nev. “Restoring the higher FHA loan limits will help to stabilize home values, provide constancy while private investors re-enter the market, and enable millions of creditworthy consumers to get home loans with the best mortgage rates and lowest fees and down-payment requirements,” he added.

Single-family housing starts, permits rise in October WASHINGTON — Single-family housing starts rose 3.9 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 430,000 units in October, according to newly released data from the U.S. Commerce Department. This improvement was somewhat masked by an 8.3 percent decline in multi-family starts that kept the combined number for nationwide housing production virtually flat at 628,000 units in October. Meanwhile, single-family permits also posted a measurable gain of 5.1 percent to 434,000 units in the latest report, which is their fastest pace since December of 2010. “The government’s numbers for October housing production are very much in keeping with what home builders have been telling us in our recent surveys,” said Bob Nielsen, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders and a home builder from Reno, Nev. “While we still have a long way to go toward a recovery, some signs of hope are emerging in certain markets where economic and job growth is occurring and where foreclosures have not been an overwhelming obstacle.” “The three-month moving averages for both housing production and permitting activity have been gradually rising since this spring, which is consistent with our forecast for slow improvement in market conditions through the end of this year and a positive sign that a more solid recovery will begin to take hold in 2012,” said National Association of Home Builders' chief economist David Crowe. “That said, the improvements we are seeing are still limited to scattered local markets where

economies are improving, and obstacles such as tight credit conditions for builders and buyers, appraisal issues stemming from new homes being compared to distressed properties, and consumer concerns about job security are definitely slowing the progression of both a housing and economic recovery.” While combined housing starts in October declined by a barely perceptible 0.3 percent to a rate of 628,000 units, the single-family sector posted a 3.9 percent gain to 430,000 units. Meanwhile, the more volatile multifamily sector posted an 8.3 percent decline to 198,000 units following an unsustainably large gain in the previous month. Combined starts activity was up in three out of four regions in October. Gains of 17.2 percent, 9.7 percent and 1.6 percent were registered in the Northeast, Midwest and South, respectively, while the West posted a 16.5 percent decline. Permit issuance, which can be an indicator of future building activity, rose 10.9 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 653,000 units in October on gains in both the single- and multifamily sides. Single-family housing permits rose 5.1 percent to 434,000 units – their highest level since December of 2010 – while multi-family permits rose 24.4 percent to 219,000 units – their highest level since October of 2008. On a regional basis, combined permitting activity was down 1.6 percent in the Northeast and 3.7 percent in the Midwest, but up 21.5 percent in the South and 5.4 percent in the West.

Conference speakers say housing needs to be a national priority

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The struggling housing market needs to be a priority on the nation’s public policy agenda, because housing and homeownership issues affect all Americans. That was the message from speakers at the Legislative and Political Forum yesterday at the 2011 Realtors Conference and Expo here. Realtors at the National Association of Realtors' annual conference heard from Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and political media consultant Alex Castellanos, who both agreed the housing market is hurting and needs to be a top priority for the 2012 presidential candidates. Both speakers said that while much of the debate focuses on the financial aspects of homeownership, there is no denying that owning a home has many social benefits and is important to the fabric of society. “Owning a home represents the best of America, is a goal for many families and has many benefits beyond the financial. We build the economy on homeownership, however, and until the housing market is restored, the nation and economy can’t move forward,” said Castellanos. He said that instead of taking money from hardworking, middle-class Americans by reducing or eliminating the mortgage interest deduction, the government should to cut its spending and give back to the American people. “Taking away the mortgage inter-

est deduction would let even more air out of the balloon and be devastating to the housing market and economy. I don’t anticipate changes to mortgage interest deduction,” said Castellanos. Rep. Gary Miller (R-Calif.) also spoke at the forum and urged Realtors to reach out to their members of Congress and encourage them to get involved in stabilizing the housing market. “A healthy housing industry helps everyone in the country. The housing market has led this nation out of every downturn we’ve had in the past. Congress needs to focus on stabilizing the market, and that must be dealt with today and in a comprehensive fashion that will serve home owners today and in the future,” said Miller. He said that legislation and regulations to fix the housing market must do no further harm. Miller said reduced loan limits for conforming loans, proposals that would eliminate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and calls to eliminate or reduce the mortgage interest deduction are having a negative impact on consumer confidence and the housing industry, and could lead to less liquidity and possibly more foreclosures. Miller talked about the future of the secondary mortgage market and said that while private capital must be the dominate source of mortgage credit, government involvement is necessary to ensure investor confidence and mortgage liquidity.
