Film features skiing ‘like there’s no tomorrow’ on Tuckerman BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Eighty years after the first skier dropped over the Tuckerman Ravine headwall, Mount Washington is getting the recognition every ski icon deserves: a feature segment in a Warren Miller film.

And on Friday it debuts before the hometown crowd. “Like There’s No Tomorrow,” the first Miller movie to feature Mount Washington, includes a 10-minute segment where superstar skiers Chris Davenport and Hugo Harrisson take a pilgrimsee TUCKERMAN page 9

OSSIPEE — County commissioners are proposing to add two more corrections officers in the wake of a jail break earlier this month. David Hobson, 34, of York County, Maine, escaped from Carroll County's jail on Dec. 1. He was found on Dec. 6 in Rochester. Hobson was awaiting trial on burglary charges when he made his escape by climbing through razor wire and jumping off the jail's roof to freedom. On Monday, lawmakers met for the first time see JAIL page 8

CONWAY — If the political playing field were level, you'd know a whole lot more about former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer, who is seeking the Republican Party nomination for president. An energetic Roemer concedes he's virtually invisible in the polls, but his audiences are growing despite the fact that he's had no luck getting on the debate stage with the other candidates. Roemer spoke at the Conway Cafe Tuesday

for about 40 minutes, taking questions from three dozen voters. He also made a return visit with an editorial board at The Conway Daily Sun. He was the paper's first repeat candidate to visit. "The power of the debate has really diminished the role of New Hampshire in my opinion," Roemer said. "In the book that I'll write I'll say that, and it surprises me." Roemer aerved four terms in the U.S. Congress from 1981 to 1988 as a conservative Democrat who often broke ranks with his see ROEMER page 11

The reverse gender gap

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– DIGEST––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

NEW YORK (NY Times) — As the year ends, much of the talk around women — at least in the United States — has moved from empowerment and global gender gaps to the trend of young single women out-earning men and the rise of female breadwinners. There are so many views and theories out there, some of them driven by independent research and others by personal experience and still others by a chatty blend of both, that we are getting a sometimes confounding, always provocative and occasionally contradictory picture. For starters, young women today — and not just in the United States — are moving quickly to close the pay gap, or in some cases have closed it already. They are marrying later and later, or not marrying at all. They no longer need husbands to have children, or want no children (40 percent of births in the United States each year are now to single women). Women are ahead of men in education (last year, 55 percent of U.S. college graduates were female). And a study shows that in most U.S. cities, single, childless women under 30 are making an average of 8 percent more money than their male counterparts, with Atlanta and Miami in the lead at 20 percent. Although that study of 2,000 communities was done only in the United States, it points to a global trend.

Obama praises troops as Iraq War ends ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (NY Times) — President Obama observed the end of the war in Iraq on Wednesday before an audience of those who fought in it, telling a crowd of returning war veterans that the nearly nine years of conflict in Iraq, a war now indelibly imprinted on the national psyche, had come to a close. “As your commander in chief, and on behalf of a grateful nation, I’m proud to finally say these two words,” Obama told a

crowded hangar at this famed North Carolina army base that is home to the 82nd Airborne Division: “Welcome home.” Calling it a “historic moment,” Obama, who has over the years of his presidency had his ups and down with his own military leaders, if not the enlisted men and women, infused his remarks with far more shoutouts for the military than the usual few that he dispenses to local politicians at the beginning of most of his standard speeches.

Putin ally resigns as speaker of Parliament

MOSCOW (NY Times) — The chairman of Russia’s ruling party, United Russia, resigned from his post as speaker of the lower house of Parliament on Wednesday, an apparent effort to quell some of the uproar over perceived fraud in recent parliamentary elections. The chairman, Boris V. Gryzlov, is the highest ranking official in United Russia after Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin, who serves as the party’s leader but is not a member. Intensely loyal to Putin,

Gryzlov played a crucial role during his eight years as speaker in pacifying the Russian Parliament, which he once famously said “was no place for political battles.” Gryzlov’s decision underscores the pressure on United Russia, which lost its constitutional majority in elections this month, officially gaining 50 percent of the vote. But even that result has been called into question amid widespread accusations that the party engaged in ballot stuffing and other fraud.

Rush for gas rights ignites battles for control of land SOUTH FAYETTE, Pa. (NY Times) — As energy companies move to drill in densely populated areas from Pennsylvania to Texas, battles are breaking out over who will have the final say in managing the shale gas boom. The fight, which pits towns and cities against energy companies and states eager for growth, has raised a fundamental question about the role of local government: How much authority should communities have over the use of their land? The battle is playing out in Pennsylvania as the Republican-controlled legislature considers bills that would in their current form sharply limit a community’s right to control where gas companies can operate on private property. Critics say the final bill could vastly weaken local zoning powers and give industry the upper hand in exchange for a tax, which cash-strapped municipalities badly need.

This time, he thanked the “legendary” 82nd Airborne Division. He thanked senior enlisted leaders. And the Sky Dragons of the 18th Airborne Corps. And the Special Operations Forces. And military families. In fact, the president wrapped himself in all of the storied patriotism and history of the country’s armed forces, congratulating the assembled troops for the job they did in Iraq — a war which he himself never approved.

Canada lynx in New Hampshire CONCORD — N.H. Fish and Game biologists have confirmed the presence of four Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) in northern New Hampshire. The fact that the lynx appeared to be kittens is evidence that the wild cats are breeding in the Granite State, an expansion of the population across the border in Maine. This month and last, four lynx were seen and photographed in two locations in Pittsburg, on two different dates. It is unknown whether the four were the same on the two occasions, but it seems likely based on the close proximity of the sightings. “The presence of lynx in New Hampshire demonstrates the effectiveness of the wildlife and habitat work that’s been done in this region over many years. It’s exciting!” said Fish and Game wildlife biologist Will Staats. “We expected the population to expand into the state eventually, and we’ve been seeing signs for a few years that they were at least passing through.” Since 2006, there have been seven cases where lynx tracks have been seen and photographed in New Hampshire’s North Country. In spring of this year, Staats himself witnessed an adult lynx crossing a rural road up north. “Until now, we’ve considered lynx in New Hampshire to represent animals that were wandering from the larger lynx population that is present in Maine as a result of recent declines in snowshoe hare abundance,” said Anthony Tur, biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Lynx are highly reliant on snowshoe hare as a food source. There are an estimated 600 to 1,200 lynx in Maine, concentrated in the northern part of

the state. “Lynx are an amazing predator, and they were historically a small but significant part of the wildlife mix in New Hampshire,” said Steve Weber, chief of Fish and Game’s wildlife division. In partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Weber stated, “We’re actively monitoring lynx in the state and taking steps to ensure the health and growth of the population.” “Serendipitously, Fish and Game’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program recently received funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to initiate formal surveys for lynx,” John Kanter, nongame program coordinator, said. “The sightings add a note of excitement to our efforts. The nongame program’s recent fund-raising appeal centered on the lynx project, and the timing of this discovery will hopefully help to engage more wildlife enthusiasts as supporters and donors to the program.” Lynx are listed as “endangered” in New Hampshire and as “threatened” under the federal Endangered Species Act. They occurred in small numbers in New Hampshire through the 1960s; the last documented lynx in New Hampshire was a road-killed animal found in 1993. At about three feet long and 15 to 30 pounds, Canada lynx are at least twice the size of the average house cat. They have long, strong legs; short tails; prominent ear tufts; and long sideburn-style hair on the sides of their face. Lynx are often recognized by their huge, furry paws, which help them travel over deep snow. More information on lynx in the United States may be found at library.

Isn’t it time that we give back to Americn heroes? To the editor: With the holidays upon us, it is the time to remember and give thanks for the blessings we have been granted due to the sacrifices of those who serve our country. Over a million American service members have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and while most of us won’t get the chance to thank each and every single one of them individually, here in the Valley we have a special opportunity to honor two such individuals and their families this holiday season. Retired Navy Lieutenant Commander John Oliveira and retired Army Specialist Eddie Platt, both of whom served in Iraq and Afghanistan, will be the guests of Christmas Can Cure, a 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to making the holiday season a little brighter for wounded warriors who have nobly served their country. Lieutenant Commander Oliveira and Specialist Platt will be welcomed during an official flag raising at the Jackson Town Offices at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, an event to which we would like to welcome everyone. At that time, both veterans will also receive official proclamations from the Jackson Selectmen making them honorary citizens of Jackson. We must always remember, especially around the holidays, those who work diligently to allow us here at home to enjoy our safety and security, and the sacrifices they make as a result. This year, I am feeling that more than ever, as two people who mean a great deal to me will be leaving soon for Afghanistan. A good friend of mine from college, who holds a very special place in my heart, will leave for his third tour in Afghanistan less than a week before Christmas and will be gone for over a year. He will miss two Christmases at home. Shortly after the New Year, my cousin, who I think of as a brother, will also leave for Afghanistan and will be gone for around a year as well. I am grateful to be involved with Christmas Can Cure because I have been personally impacted by people who have served

and still are serving our country. It takes a truly remarkable person to accept that responsibility, and it is up to us to open our arms in support of them in return for their service to us, a cause Christmas Can Cure wholly embraces. It is in this spirit, during the most generous time of year, that I would like to reach out to all of you to implore to you to think of these families who are coming to spend time with us this holiday season. Isn’t it time that we give back? Service members and their families make such great sacrifices for us, and I would love nothing more than for this Valley, with its generous spirit, to make a lasting impact on Lieutenant Commander Oliveira, Specialist Platt, and their families. Many expenses go into making a memorable experience for the families, and although Dr. Gerry Carrier, his wife, Dolores, and their family have been instrumental in conceiving of this event and generously donating time, money, and facilities, donations are very welcome from the public to support this very worthy cause. If you are interested in making a donation, checks, payable to Christmas Can Cure, can be sent to PO Box 384, Jackson, NH 03846, or you can make a secure online donation via PayPal at Following a full schedule of winter sports and other fun activities, there will also be a flag lowering ceremony, which will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 20, also at 10 am, in the same location as the flag raising — the Jackson Town Offices. You, the citizens of the Mount Washington Valley, can make these veterans and their families feel welcome, and honor their service this holiday season. Remember, the flag raising is at 10 am on Friday, Dec. 16, at the Jackson Town Offices and will be a wonderful ceremony honoring two American heroes. Danielle Winters Hale’s Location

Advocating arrest of protesters is anti-American To the Editor, In response to Bill Catalucci; Last Sunday I took a shower, combed my hair, put on deodorant and attended the Occupy Wall Street rally in Conway at 1:00 PM. I didn’t see anyone “obstructing traffic, robbing, raping, destroying property, or drug dealing”. What I saw were concerned citizens trying to bring attention to numerous inequities in our society. The signs they carried didn’t promote, “anti-American, socialist/commie/Marxist” agendas. Most of the signs expressed concern over: the fate of the middle class, corporate political power, unregulated banking, trade policies affecting U.S. jobs, and special interest money influencing legislation.

The closest thing to a sign advocating revolution was one urging a “paradigm shift.” Bill, your comments advocating the arrest of protesters is more antiAmerican than anything I experienced on Sunday. Article One of the Bill of Rights protects Americans rights “to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Would you like to dispense with that right, or is your rant just a disgraceful, name-calling attempt at humor? So Bill, just sit on your couch and watch sports. You won’t be any different than the majority of Americans. But please Bill; spare us your “opinions.” Ken McKenzie Eaton

since the jail break but went behind closed doors to discuss security at the county's corrections department. In county government, a group of 14 local state representatives approves county budgets, which county commissioners manage with help from department heads. Delegation vice chair Joe Fleck (R-Wakefield) said lawmakers decided to upgrade fencing at a particular section of the jail. Fleck declined to give details. Commissioners have been authorized to spend a small sum to make the upgrade. "It shouldn't be a problem to find the funding," said Fleck. Commission chairman David Sorensen told lawmakers the commission proposes to create two more corrections officer positions at the jail. That would bring the total to 31 corrections officers. Corrections department superintendent Jason Johnson said he would need 36 corrections officers to staff the jail effectively. In public session, lawmakers concerned themselves with the large increase in the heating budget at the department of corrections. The 2011 heating budget was $150,000, and $141,114 had been spent by the end of September. This year, the commission is seeking $187,000, which is almost twice as much as they spent on heating fuel in 2009. Rep. Chris Ahlgren (R-Wolfeboro) questioned if the increase could be partially attributed to a maintenance issue. A subcommittee of lawmakers will examine the heating fuel situation. Monday's meeting was an opportunity for the public to weigh in on the proposed 2012 budget. Former state representative Susan Wiley (D-Sandwich) urged lawmakers consider investing resources to address inmates' mental health problems at the corrections department. "We know that recidivism is a big

problem in New Hampshire and it's a big problem across the country," said Wiley. The average length of time an offender stays in the community before re-offending is 9.6 months. About 90 percent of people who re-offend will do so in less than two years, said Wiley citing statistics from the New Hampshire Department of Corrections. Former county commissioner Chip Albee questioned the $759,000 increase in the state's bill from the Department of Elderly and Adult Services. The county has no control over this expense because it's set in Concord. The total proposed appropriation for Department of Elderly and Adult Services is $3,959,704. "The commission needs to request an audit from the Department of Health and Human Services on the DEAS line," said Albee. "I don't see a 20 percent increase in the number of Medicaid residents at the nursing home I don't see a 20 percent in the amount of Medicaid being paid for residents at the nursing home. I think they need to justify that increase." Rep. David Babson (R-Ossipee) called Department of Health and Human Services about the Department of Elderly and Adult Services bill but hasn't gotten a response. The bottom line proposed county budget is $26,988,202, of which $11,701,494 will come from revenues besides property taxes. The remainder, $15,286,708, will come from property taxes. That amount represents a 19 percent increase. Sorensen said with 20011's budget, the commission used $2.5 million in surplus for reducing the tax rate. This year, the commission will likely return $500,000. So, the commission needs to make up $2 million. Lawmakers will work on the budget until the end of March. The percentage to be raised by taxes is expected to be decreased in the months ahead. A number of other uncontrollable see next page

age thousands of Eastern skiers will recognize: They hike into Tuckerman Ravine, camp at Hermit Lake, climb above the clouds to the summit, and — in classic Warren Miller style — ski lines most people would never dare. The movie also includes segments from Alaska, India, Chile and Norway, but many viewers will likely attend to see the terrain that lives just up the road. People will get a chance to see these professional skiers rip over the same lines they might themselves ski come springtime, said Jim Surette, one of the filmmakers who worked on the segment. “The guys are dropping right over Center Headwall, Right Gully, Left Gully,” he said, “just faster and more fluid. It’s a whole new level, for sure.” Surette, who lives in Intervale, will be at the showing, joined by Davenport, who grew up skiing in the Mount Washington Valley.

costs are going up, said Sorensen. Those include various types of insurances, heating fuel and the bill from the New Hampshire retirement system. Another uncontrollable cost is the payment for the nursing home, which was completed in September. The payment will be $1,970,594. Sorensen recommended putting $1.1 million of left over from the construction of the new nursing home toward the principal of the new nursing home. Sorensen predicted there would be a total of $2 million left over from the construction budget. Commissioners propose giving most non-union employees a 30 cent raise. Commissioners are giving raises based on a set amount rather than a percentage increase because applying a percentage increase to wages helps

of his new book that catalogs classic North American ski descents earlier in the day. This is the second time the two have collaborated on a ski film. Last year they teamed up on a movie that captured Davenport’s exploits near the southern tip of South America. This year’s project, however, had Surette camping and shooting in his own backyard. “It was just fantastic,” he said. “We didn’t want to come home. It was a mini-expedition.” Seven of them — two filmmakers, two skiers, a photographer, a cook and an assistant — went up onto the mountain for seven days and six nights last March, he said. “That was our core crew.” At the start conditions were not ideal. As every Tuckerman enthusiast knows, March can be hit or miss up high. “It was definitely early,” Surette said, “prior to the traditional spring see TUCKERMAN page 10

the most affluent employees disproportionately. "It's the people at the bottom who are really hurting," said Sorensen. Sorensen added that three or four employees have approached the commission with hardships like not being able to pay their heating bills or mortgages. In some cases, the commission has approved pay advances. "Carroll County board of commissioners looks after our employees," said Sorensen. "Whatever we can do to help them we will do it as long as it's documented and reasonable." Commissioners are drafting a formal policy to deal with employees facing hardships. The proposed budget doesn't include changes to the nursing home and jail union contracts because those contracts are still being negotiated, said Sorensen.

The segment showcases Mount Washington’s ski terrain, Surette said, but that’s not all.

party to vote with President Reagan, and he served as the 52nd governor of Louisiana from 1988 to 1992. He was elected as a Democrat but switched to the Republican Party on March 11, 1991. On July 21, 2011, Roemer announced his entry into the presidential race at Dartmouth College in Hanover, and he has been stumping heavily in the Granite State ever since. He's running a campaign where he's seeking maximum financial donations of no more than $100 from any one person or business. "Please help elect a president who is free to lead America by making a personal donation up to $100," his website states. "When we break the stranglehold of special interest money on Washington, D.C., together we can tackle America's fiscal crisis, streamline government and restore opportunity and hope for our citizens." "In these debates there has not been a single question about campaign reform," he said. "Not one, as if there's not problem here." Roemer is the lone candidate to public support the Occupy Movement and contends the group has a lot of similarities to the Tea Party Movement although both sides may debate that. "It's like there are two active elements in American politics today," he said. "Everybody else is a spectator watching the debates. There are two groups out there raising a little bit of hell — Occupy in its various forms from Oakland to Boston, and Tea Party. I think they're the same movement. Neither one of them sees it. They both view me in some suspicion because I go and visit with the other group, too. "Here's what they have in common: They both smell the same smell, institutional corruption. They smell it. They phrase it differently. The Tea Party is less monetary driven and more structurally driven. The Occupy Wall Street has the wrong answer. They think we need bigger government and I whisper to them that we need better government. But they both smell something is rotten in Denmark and it's somewhere between Wall Street and K-Street. I'm glad it's happening. I share with both of them their concerns. Most of my adult life I've been concerned about corruption in high places. I think it's the biggest potential tyranny to our freedom. I think we Americans have just become spectators and allowed it to happen." Roemer has had to deal with corruption up close and personal. His father, Charles Roemer, while serving for former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards in 1981 as his commissioner of administration, was convicted of taking bribes and having connections with Mafia boss Carlos Marcello, according to the website Wikipedia. "He worked for a governor who was corrupt and he got caught up in it," Roemer said. "He was sentenced to a year and a half in jail for corruption in Louisiana along with a lot of other Louisiana politicians. The

Supreme Court ruled he was falsely accused and after 11 months he was let out of jail. But it was such a lesson for me, such a powerful lesson for me, and sometimes the lessons that come close to home are the ones remembered most often. "My father is still alive and I love my dad. I was a congressman when it happened. Publicly, as I said when I was running for Congress and my opponents would hit me with my dad's alleged corruption, I would say, 'I love my father, but he's not running, you're going to have to judge me.' But it did imprint on me the lesson of how corruption can show up unexpectedly and if unchecked can run rampant, and that's what happened in Louisiana." Roemer is convinced the political system is broken. "If the goal of a politician is to increase name recognition and then have voters know about him, the debates are not a passing phenomena, they are the campaign," he said.

With the New Hampshire primary five week away, Roemer said he's the only candidate stumping in the Granite State this week. "Politico called and said, 'Bud, you're the only one in New Hampshire, what's wrong with your campaign?' That was their take on it. Everyone else was preparing for a debate or a fund-raiser. I haven't had a single fund-raiser in this campaign. "My candidacy is handicapped by lack of information and the ability to get it out," he continued. "If the whole world is looking out the window and you're in the room shaking hands, it doesn't help because they're looking out the window. The first question asked me (Monday) at all 11 of my events was, 'Why haven't you been in a debate;, I like how you sound, but what's wrong with you?' Debate presence verifies who you are. It kind of certifies your candidacy. It says that some power, no see DEBATE page 12

Roemer is not against money in politics, but he remains steadfast against getting it without full disclosure and in favor of setting financial limits to those contributions. "I made a chronological schedule of my debate attempts the other night," he said. "There have been 10 national debates and they are anywhere from five days to 10 days apart so fairly steady. The first three debates I was not a candidate for president. I was in the exploratory phase. I announced at Dartmouth about 12 weeks ago. I missed the first three debates because you have to be a formal candidate. I was not, I had no problem with that. I think that's a minimal requirement. "The next three debates, I called the debate sponsors and that was MSNBC, FOX and CNN and I was told they had agreed to certain rules and you had to have 1 percent (rating) in national polls. They actually said

five national polls and I was at zero. So I didn't like that. I said, 'Do you know that I'm the only person running who has been a congressman and a governor?' I said, 'Do you know I'm the only person running who has actually created jobs in a billion dollar bank that he started with no bailout money. Do you know that I'm the only person running who has been to China 20 times on his own ticket?' They said you can get 1 percent, get it and call us back. "We got it, I called them back and we were now at debate five, six and seven and they said we've raised the rule to 2 percent," Roemer continued. "OK, I was frustrated and when I put the phone down I cursed. I don't do that often, but I did it then. I said to Al Hunt at Bloomberg that I'm getting a pattern. I'm getting a pattern here that whatever I do it won't be quite good enough. He said, 'That's not true, Buddy. I'd love to have you, you would make this debate but we have these national rules and we have to follow them.' Bloomberg has signed on to them. So we went out and got 2 percent. We called for the last two debates, I was told they had one new requirement: You had to raise

$500,000 in the last 90 days. So I've gone from no standards except announcing, to 1 percent, to 2 percent, to 2 percent with a $500,000 raised. In that time period, I had raised $330,000. My average contribution was $40.45. I was damn proud of it, no one else can match it, but it wasn't good enough. I took no PAC money, no Super PAC money. They've are raising a hurdle that for a candidate like me is hard to make." Roemer placed all of his political eggs in New Hampshire's basket, spending all his time here, but sadly believes New Hampshire's history of retail politics may be on its last legs. "Let me carefully but honestly answer you," he said. "I've gained a lot being here and I don't put New Hampshire down, but it's not a strategy that I would recommend to any other candidate ever again. The world has changed. It's Internet driven, it's television dominated and politics has adjusted. "One of the ways to clean up politics is to reduce the retail expenses," he said. "And so what these candidates do now rather than sell their soul as early as they used to to the special interest, they still collect the money, but their soul is sold to the debates. That's the way they've tried to adjust not having taking the special interest money. Now if you look at their contributions, they all have Super PACs. Jon Huntsman campaign is broke, it's been broke for seven weeks. He gets all his money from his Super PAC that his dad finances. It's illegal. It would be legal for his dad to give him money. He would have to pay taxes on it, but he could then spend it anyway he'd like, but if they want to avoid the taxes they do the super PAC. "The money game is still important," he added, "but the biggest game in town are the debates. I wouldn't suggest to New Hampshire that it quit being a lead state and being a retail state, but the power of that has diminished." Roemer said candidates are not spending advertising money in New Hampshire like they have in the past. "Most money in politics is spent now to get more money, the cost of fund-raising," he said. "Firms are hired, this is a business. Like all businesses that become monopolies, they end up being corrupt. You go to the same people over and over again for a check and they give the same amount to (Sen. John) McCain as they do to (President Barack) Obama; they win either way. I won't mention G.E.'s name or Goldman-Sachs, that's what they do. The reason (former Minnesota governor and one-time presidential candidate) Tim Pawlenty spent $4 million and got out is because he spent it poorly. The reason that Jon Huntsman is broke see next page

is he's not a good businessman, he spent it poorly. One quit and the other one is relying on the Super Pac. I mean (Texas governor and candidate) Rick Perry has disappeared. He's just storing up money in his three Super PACs, I mean seven Super PACs. Mitt Romney has three, Obama has two. "Here's the law," Roemer said. "Super PACs are legal if they are independent. The Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United was that the greatest threat to democracy was corruption and the appearance of corruption, therefore Congress can broadly limit and require disclosure of direct contributions. That's the law, $2,500 is the limit. PACs are $5,000 and full disclosure. "Then I began to look at the Super PACs. Mitt Romey has three — one run by his business partner, one run by his former chief of staff, and one run buy his former campaign manager. Obama has two — one by his former campaign manager and one by one of his former chief of staff. Mitt Romney went to a fund-raiser for his Super PACs; he spoke at it. Wow! It is clearly illegal, these Super PACS. The American Bar Association and other uninterested lawyers are going to sue before the FEC and the Supreme Court the Super PACs are illegal, unconstitutional by the Supreme Court's 5-4 ruling and the money has to be returned. This will be a powerful lawsuit, this is a train wreck waiting to happen. "This is why I'm running. I'm not running because I'm perfect. I'm not running because I'm the vestal virgin. I'm running because I've seen corruption in my state and fought it. I chose to fight it and I took a hammering doing it, but by God it had to be done and we cleaned up our state up, relatively speaking. I'm the only guy running who has been a congressman and seen it and who has been a governor and seen it. I decided to get back into the arena for one purpose, rebuild America, and the first step is to separate the special interest money. "I don't accuse Mitt Romney of being corrupt, I don't accuse Barack Obama of being corrupt. The system they play in is corrupt," Roemer added. Since leaving public office, Roemer has been involved in a number of business ventures. Most recently, according to his website, he served as the founder, CEO and president of Business First Bank, a smallbusiness community bank with approximately $650 million in assets that took no bailout money from the federal government. Businessman Donald Trump is holding a debate on Dec. 27, but has been turned down by Romney and Hunstman. Roemer said he's called Trump to get into the debate. "I'd love to get in on that debate," he said. "We've

tried to called him, but not heard back. He's kind of a frivolous guy in many respects, in terms of politics, in terms of gravitas, but he is a successful businessman. Some of his issues are worth discussing. I do it all the time, fair trade with China. I'm hoping that he returns my call. I'm hoping that's an abbreviated shot, but one that I will take. You know beggars cannot be choosers." Roemer lives in Baton Rouge, La., with his wife Scarlett, and is the father of three children. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College and his MBA from Harvard Business School. If unsuccessful in winning the Republican nomination, Roemer said he may be open to using Americans Elect as his path to get on the presidential ballot. The organization purports to be the first political effort to create a "non-partisan" presidential ticket. "Founded and advised by a Who's Who of Ivory Tower political thought-havers, the organization has re-imagined the process of choosing a political candidate as something akin to online dating," according to the website Wikipedia. "Users sign up, assign priorities to broad issue portfolios, and then answer a series

of questions about how they feel about various things. From there, it generates a profile that's supposed to help you match yourself with a candidate. The most popular nominee will actually appear on the ballot on Election Day. "I like them, but I haven't finished vetting them, but I've said publicly last week that I would consider their nomination," Roemer said. "I would remain a Republican, but if they would like to join me in my efforts in the Republican Party then I would consider us getting together. That would require me to pair up with an Independent or a Democrat and have a Centrus party. "A third party is always a long shot but I think America is right for a change," he continued. "The biggest party in New Hampshire is Independent. The only party growing in America is the Independents. The way the Independents move will decide which party's nominee will win and if the Independents decide to move with my unity ticket, with my centralized theme about building government with socialists, leftists and conservatives, putting a team together, we could do it, it could be done. I'm excited about the thought."

Memorial Hospital offers job shadowing opportunities for high school students Students of all ages can explore a possible future in health care at Memorial Hospital. Starting with children as young as 6, the opportunities abound. Elementary Schools in SAU9, SAU13, and SAD72 are welcome to participate in Memorial’s “Play Hospital” tours — a one-and-a half hour tour through various hospital departments that children are likely to encounter in real life. A visit to the emergency department might include a gentle explanation about stitches or casts. In the imaging department, children learn that X-Rays are painless and how their bodies look on the inside. Physical therapy reinforces the importance of safety and exercise. The tour concludes with a visit to the nursery and a snack in the cafeteria. For upper elementary, junior and senior high students, special tours are available to complement school-based learning activities. For example, a biology class may be interested in visiting the hospital’s clinical laboratory and the opportunity of talking with staff. An anatomy class might spend some time in memorial’s imaging department or physical therapy. For high school students, the hospital’s job shadow program can offer an opportunity for students to

explore possible career paths in the healthcare industry. In order to qualify for the program, students are expected to: complete a formal application and screening process that should include: a statement of purpose and recommendations from teachers and or guidance counselors; attend a general orientation; and complete a TB screening test. The number of hours and days per week assigned are nego-

tiable and are based on the ability of each hospital department’s ability to accommodate student requests. For students enrolled in college or vocational/ technical schools, externships are available. This requires a longer time commitment and tasks that adhere to specific clinical needs as determined by the student’s school. Daniel Fritz, a student at Bucknell University, who spent last summer at Memorial Hospital, participating in the job shadowing program said: “The job shadowing at Memorial was a unique and valuable experience for me, as I was able to see and learn how a small, busy, rural hospital functions. It was especially helpful in understanding the relationships between the staff in the operating room, emergency department, and medical/ surgical floor. For the first time, I could see how everyone worked together to care for patients. Up to this point in my undergraduate studies, I had only spent time in larger medical centers. My time at Memorial definitely affirms my plan to continue studies in medicine after I graduate from Bucknell University.” Due to the special nature and confidentiality requirements of a hospital setting, Memorial Hospital reserves the right to refuse requests for placement that could compromise the best interests of the patients. Memorial Hospital, however, makes every effort to accommodate requests that introduce students to the health care environment subject to the special nature of the facility and department schedules. To arrange for any of the student opportunities, please contact Joan Lanoie in Volunteer Services at 603-356-5461, ext. 2291.

and chicken to meat platters — all of which can add a little spice to your daily diet. Also, test the soups and other packaged foods. You just have to decide which ones you'll enjoy and can see yourself continuing to eat in the long run. 4. Find Your Favorites. Experiment and sample a variety of foods. Some of the entrees or sides will not be to your liking — that’s fine. Just don’t sample three or four meals at a time! Eventually you will find your favorites; stock up on those. You can even order them by the case if you want. For instance, offers Lean Cuisine, Healthy Choice, Amy’s (soups), Weight Watchers Smart Ones and many others. Ordering online means the foods will come directly to your door, which will make weight loss even easier. Once you figure out which meals you like, keep a supply in your freezer and fridge — that way, a healthy meal will always be just a few minutes away. It's a good idea to serve them on a plate. The volume of food appears bigger and fills up the plate, and as a result you will be more satisfied. 5. Create A Weekly Planning Guide. Make sure you fill in every detail. It's best to use a spreadsheet program to create a form. Planning your meals in advance is extremely important because it leaves less room for things to go wrong — which is usually when people fall off the wagon. 6. Create A Weekly Shopping List. This will ensure that all the foods on your weekly menu make it to your cupboard, fridge and freezer. see PLATKIN page 18

Bridgton Hospital nurse anesthetist named Clinical Instructor of the Year

BRIDGTON, Maine — Thomas Nolan, a certified registered nurse anesthetist at Bridgton Hospital, has been named the recipient of the St. Rene ‘Clinical Instructor of the Year Award’ by the University of New England. The presentation was made at the Nov. 5 Class of 2011 commencement exercises for the University of New England Graduate School of Nurse Anesthesia. This is the first year for the award which has been established to recognize the value of the clinical instructors to the nurse anesthesia program. Nolan was given the award because of his didactic as well as clinical participation in student education. St. Rene was designated as the patron saint of nurse anesthetists in 1951 at the St. Mary's Hospital School of Nurse Anesthetists in Wausau, Wisconsin.

The school of anesthesia for nurses has clinical sites throughout the New England states including Bridgton Hospital, Central Maine Medical Center, Eastern Maine Medical Center, Maine Medical Center, University of Massachusetts, and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Other states where they have sites include Florida, Wisconsin and Maryland. Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) represent a long-standing commitment to high standards in a demanding field. CRNAs were one of the first nursing groups to specialize beyond general nursing. They provide one-on-one care to their patients before, during and after surgery, delivering quality anesthesia and pain management services for surgical and obstetrical procedures combined with a personal concern for the health and welfare of the individual. Today,

Thomas Nolan, CRNA, first recipient of the St. Rene "Clinical Instructor of the Year Award" by the University of New England.

there are more than 45,000 CRNAs nationwide. Tom has been a nurse anesthetist for 28 years and has been practicing at Bridgton Hospital since 2006. He is a resident of Bridgton.

Rotary grant buys trauma kit for Tamworth Community Nurses

TAMWORTH — The Tamworth Community Nurse Association recently received a grant from the Rotary Club of North Conway. This grant enabled them to purchase a wellequipped trauma kit, enabling their nurses to respond quickly and effectively to Tamworth residents requiring emergency first aid. "Previously, we had to make an additional stop at the office to gather specific trauma supplies before heading to a patient's home." said Jo Anne Rainville RN, executive direcPLATKIN from page 15

7. Weigh Yourself. Do this on the very first morning of your first day, before eating anything but after using the bathroom. 8. Put the Diet Detective’s Build-a-Meal Plan Into Action. Simply choose your breakfast entree and side, a midmorning snack, your lunch entree and side, an afternoon snack, your dinner entree and side(s) and a dessert, along with your beverages. You will see that even though fruits and vegetables are generally considered side dishes, I have listed them in a separate category. That’s because I want to make sure you include as many of them as possible in your meal plan. In selecting sides and snacks, always look at the fruits and vegetables first. Fruits and vegetables are packed with fiber, which helps fill you up — exactly what

tor of the Tamworth Community Nurse Association. "This kit will afford ready access to emergency supplies that might be required." Because of their accessibility to Tamworth residents, a TCNA nurse is frequently the first responder at the scene of an emergency situation. "Ideally, we would like to have a second trauma kit so that two nurses are prepared for those unexpected accidents." Rainville went on to say. If you would be interested in making such a

donation to TCNA, contact their office at 323-8511. The Tamworth Community Nurse Association is a unique service, providing skilled nursing care to Tamworth residents with no fee for service, saving individuals as well as our health care system millions of dollars over the years. 2011 marks their 90th birthday.

9. Walk. Yes, walk every single day for at least 30 minutes MORE than you were walking before you started the plan. Follow this plan and you will lose weight. Granted, this is a very basic version of the first phase of the program, but it should give you a jump-start. If you want to continue on the program, you’ll need to figure out your daily calorie needs, subtract 500 calories per day and develop a plan with the appropriate Phase 2 calorie levels. Go to this website: gl/cKKMg, and NEVER eat FEWER THAN 1,200 calories per day. Charles Stuart Platkin is a nutrition and public health advocate and founder of DietDetective. com.

Mountain Top Music Center’s Community Orchestra holiday concert Sunday, Dec. 18, at 3 p.m. at the Salyards Performing Arts Center in Conway Village.The program pairs the center’s full concert orchestra with the Mount Washington Valley Choral Society. (COURTESY PHOTO)

Community Orchestra, Choral Society join forces for holiday concert Sunday CONWAY — Mountain Top Music Center’s Community Orchestra holiday concert program is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 18, at 3 p.m. at the Salyards Performing Arts Center in Conway Village. “We’ve envisioned this very special event to be Mountain Top Music Center’s and the Choral Society’s holiday gift to the community with the hopes that it will become an annual tradition in the area,” Judy Kennedy, Mountain Top’s concert committee chairman, said. The program, pairing the center’s full concert orchestra

under the leadership of faculty member Chris Nourse with the Mount Washington Valley Choral Society directed by Nancy DuCette Farris, is a new partnership of its kind for the two groups. They and four exceptional soloists — Ellen Farnum soprano, Susan Brinker alto, Martell Spagnolo tenor, and Hans Stafford bass — will entertain with selections from Handel’s Messiah including the well-known “Hallelujah Chorus” and Dietrich Buxtehude’s Cantata “Rejoice, Beloved Christians.” The family-friendly concert is free of charge; however,

donations will be appreciated. “Joyful music is integral to this season and we are excited to bring a composition as majestic as the Messiah to our neighbors,” Kennedy said. "The holiday concert offers an opportunity to pause awhile and step away from the busyness of the holidays to be with family and neighbors for a few hours of uplifting music that showcases our many talented local artists.” To get involved with Mountain Top and for more information on all programs and class schedules call 447-4737 or visit

Rev. Andy Jepson discusses his year in Zimbabwe Sunday It is hard to believe that Christmas is only 10 days away. This time of year it is truly hard to find time to even breath, never mind getting everything that we need done. My Christmas shopping is almost done and this past Sunday we spent the day wrapping. This year we had the pleasure of shopping for a little boy whose parents signed him up for Angels and Elves. This is what Christmas is really all about, knowing that you made a child smile on Christmas morning. Just a couple of years ago, I was in a position of needing help from Angels and Elves. Now we were able to help them out. It is amazing how much life can change in a very short period of time. I am truly thankful for all that we have. I hope everyone is blessed this Christmas. The 2011 tax rate and annual property tax bills for the Town of Bartlett will be issued after Jan. 1, 2012. This delayed billing is due to the town’s re-assessment process and expenses from the aftermath of Hurricane Irene necessitating a special town meeting on Dec. 26, 2011. Residents will have 30 days from the date of the bill for taxes to be paid for the 2011 tax year.

If you have any questions, contact the tax xollector’s office at 3562300 or by e-mail at Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays (Closed Thursday and Sunday). The Bartlett Village Church has been busy this holiday season and enjoyed a lively holiday sing-a-long after enjoying some great food last Saturday. This was followed on Sunday by our youth “hanging of the greens” and ringing of the bell. It’s an exciting time in the life of a church. Join in any Sunday at 10 a.m. or celebrate Christmas Eve on Dec. 24 at 7 p.m. A special event is being offered this Sunday, Dec. 18, at 6 p.m. Come to the Bartlett Village Church to hear about Rev. Andy Jepson’s year in Zimbabwe. She will have pictures of Zimbabwe on DVD and also hopes to have prints available for viewing. She plans to have random pictures playing as she speaks. Her letters describing some of her adventures are enjoyable and the impact they are having on the lives of many is substantial. It will be a very entertaining and

If there is snow all the skiing and tubing will add a

Spread some Christmas-Time Cheer with a Double-Sized Holiday Ad Run your ad in our December 24th Holiday Guide with your holiday greeting and a picture and The Sun will double the size of the ad you purchase. You may use this Holiday Greeting ad throughout the Holiday Season for the same price. This promotion is open to businesses, organizations, families and individuals. Here are some examples: To wish a spouse or a friend a Merry Christmas, The Sun will double the dimensions of a $28. business-card size ad - a $56.00 value. Bigger ads more suitable for businesses and organizations will also be double. So an 1/8th page ad will be turned into a quarter page ad, a quarter page into a half page and so on. Doesn’t matter what the size of the ad, The Sun will double it.

So get the camera out and spread some Holiday Cheer.

By Holiday Mathis issues over the next few days. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You aren’t born optimistic. You have to grow into the label by repeating the tendency to look on the bright side until it’s a habit. You’ll take hold of your thoughts and cultivate good will. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you hear good news, take it as a sign. This is just the tip of the iceberg. From here on out, things get better and better. Believe and act in accordance, and it becomes true. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Recruiting is an art. Instead of merely asking people to join forces with you, turn it into an event. People are more seduced by celebration and ritual. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll see the charm in things that others don’t want to think about. This is what sets you apart as a friendly force and an artistic influence on the otherwise ordinary. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When someone says “no” to you, you’ll be wise to take this as a good sign. A fast “no” is, after all, so much better than a “maybe” that drags on indefinitely. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 15). Entertaining and engaging social happenings will bring several opportunities to make useful connections and enjoy different scenery. You’ll dump old baggage in February. In April, you’ll be a part of a new team. June and July feature professional growth and a greater sense of community and contribution. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 39 and 41.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Life isn’t a popularity contest, but if it were, you would win it today. You seem to have what people are looking for, and you’re willing to share it in just the right amount. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Avoid experiencing life in hyperbole. Discount exaggerations of the mind and word. When nothing is the best, worst, nicest or meanest, you can see it for what it really is. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are constantly issuing statements to the world, even when you don’t realize it. Your attitude and appearance speak for you. You’ll find the response you get in return a little surprising now. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A burden is eased, and the relief you feel about this will bring about a surge of self-control. You’ll work for healthy payoffs instead of settling for unhealthy, temporary benefits. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are highly involved in life, and the level of attention you give your interests can be personally demanding and sometimes downright inconvenient. But the joy you feel being in the mix of things makes it all worthwhile. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone shows off when they want attention. You’ll be artful in your attempts to capture interest, and that will make all the difference in the quality of attention you receive. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People want to be associated with winners, and yet close contact with big personalities often breeds jealousy and discontent. You’ll be sorting through such

Page 28 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Thursday, December 15, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: “Saddened in New Jersey” (Oct. 2) complained that her sister’s 4-year-old daughter put stickers on the hands and face of her deceased grandmother during her wake. Perhaps the child’s mother didn’t anticipate her daughter’s actions. Children need to grieve, too. That said, they also should behave appropriately. I saw an article about one funeral home with an excellent solution. Before the dearly departed is placed in the casket, the inside fabric, pillow, etc. are removed. The children are then allowed to decorate the uncovered casket walls with farewell messages and drawings. The interior is then “reupholstered” and nothing is visible. The children are told that it is to keep their messages private. One story was particularly touching -- a little boy wanted his mommy to know how much he loved her and for it to be as close to her as possible. He wrote “I love you, Mommy” on the casket pillow that was placed beneath her head. At the service, only he knew about the secret message he had left for his mom for all eternity. -- A MOM IN TEXAS DEAR MOM: Thank you for sharing a clever solution. I felt that the child’s placing of stickers on her grandmother’s body was disrespectful and the mother was wrong to permit it in spite of the grandfather’s expression of disapproval. While I viewed it as a desecration of a corpse, readers felt differently. My newspaper readers comment: DEAR ABBY: “Saddened” should never have removed the 4-year-old from the casket. It was not her place. The child was giving her grandmother a goodbye gift. If the woman wanted to remove the stickers before the casket was closed, she should have done it after the child left the room. I have seen many friends and relatives place things in caskets as gifts and remembrances. It is not disrespectful to the deceased, but gives closure and a warm memory to those

who are still living. Putting stickers on Grandma was the child’s way of saying goodbye. A funeral is a celebration of life and no matter what their age, people are entitled to say goodbye in their own way. -- MELODY IN NEVADA DEAR ABBY: If the sticker incident is the worst that can be said about the 4-year-old’s behavior that day, what’s the harm? Had she thrown a tantrum during the service or before placing the stickers, I’d agree that the child should not have been there. But since the behavior took place after “Saddened” made an issue of the stickers, the situation could have been handled more effectively. All “Saddened” had to do was wait until the service was over, take the funeral director aside privately and ask him to remove the stickers before the deceased was interred. No drama, no scene, no tantrum, and everybody goes home in peace. Funerals, like any other event, are only as stressful as you want them to be. -- NO DRAMA, PLEASE DEAR ABBY: I own the West’s oldest funeral firm and I disagree with your answer. Funerals are about learning that we are mortal. To stand on ceremony when a young child is participating in one of life’s most important lessons misses the point. Memorials are not about formality but humanity. Let the child place those stickers and let everyone learn something from that. -- DAN IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR ABBY: Our grandchildren love stickers, put them all over themselves and their clothing, and are thrilled if they can share them with me to “wear” for a while. If any of our grandkids are still young enough to want to “decorate” ME in my casket when I go, I would hope everyone around me would appreciate the gesture and smile at the loving relationship I had with that child. -- GRANDMA OF (ALMOST) 13

Eagles own the boards in 38-25 victory over Kingswood BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The Kennett High girls basketball team opened its season on a winning note by topping arch-rival Kingswood 38-25 before a large, vocal crowd at The Nest on Tuesday. It was opening night for both Division II programs and it was the host Eagles who found a successful path to victory. The Kennett girls pulled down 50 rebounds, including 20 on the offensive glass, and had three players score in double figures in the win, which was the first for new head coach Larry Meader. “We know we have to control the boards if we are going to be successful,” Meader said. “It wasn’t pretty, but for the first game out, we did more good things than bad. We’re still a work in progress but we can take the positives and continue from here.” Kennett led from wire-to-wire in this one. Senior co-captain Jessie Wagner, who was playing through the pain of shin splints, put the home side in front with a running one-hander in the lane that drew nothing but net. Junior Lauren Kidder followed with a free throw and Lauren White added a rebound put back to jump out to a 5-0 advantage and the hosts never looked back. Junior co-captain Jordan Murphy gave the Eagles their first 10-point lead of the season when she buried her first three-point attempt late in the period. KHS led 13-6 after the opening eight minutes and went on to carry a 17-10 cushion into the locker room following a defensive-laden second quarter. “I think the key was rebounding and our play on the defensive end,” Coach Meader said. “I thought we looked pretty good defensively for most of the night. In the second period, (Kingswood) got a few more rebounds because Lauren (White) was out for most of that time. She had two fouls and I didn’t want her to pick up a third before halftime. We did a nice job of controlling the boards in the second half.” Kennett opened the third quarter just as it had in the first with a 5-0 run. Senior Casey Blakely converted a three-point play the old-fashioned way with a basket and free throw and then followed up 20 seconds later with a layup on a perfectly executed press break in which all five Eagles touched the ball without it hitting the ground. “That was just like how we drew it up,” Meader said, laughing.

Meader said. “She finished with 10 points and 13 rebounds and really was a presence inside.” The teams swapped baskets early in the fourth frame until Wagner drained a long three-pointer to make it 36-21 and led to the first “Start the bus” chants of the season from the KHS Student Body. “Jessie was playing through pain,” Meader said. “When she was in there she gave us everything she had.” The lone blemish on an otherwise successful night came with 2:09 to play when Kidder took a wicked elbow to the face that immediately sent her to the floor and stopped the game for over five minutes. “She snapped her neck pretty good,” Meader said. “…Hopefully she’ll be good to go on Friday.” Taylor put the exclamation point on the victory with a huge blocked shot with 23 seconds to play that drew wide applause and cheers from the Kennett faithful. On the evening, Wagner, Taylor and Blakely each finished with 10 points while Murphy added 3; White, 2; Kaylin Samia, 2; and Kidder, 1. Blakely also pulled down 10 rebounds while Kidder and White each hauled in seven. Kennett returns to action tomorrow with a trip to Dover to play St. Thomas (0-2). The Saints dropped two games on the road, falling 51-39 at Coe-Brown Academy last Friday, and 45-34 at Portsmouth on Tuesday. Kennett High Junior Lauren Kidder helped the Eagles control the boards on Tuesday. “I’m in the process of trying to get Here, she pulls down one of her seven rebounds on the night. (LLOYD JONES PHOTO) a scouting report on them,” Meader Kingswood closed to within eight points with said. “They’re 0-2, but they’ve played two pretty three minutes to play in the third quarter, but backgood teams, Coe-Brown and Portsmouth. They’ll be to-back baskets by Kaitlin “Shaq” Taylor got the tough, especially on their court, which is always a advantage back up to 12 points, 28-16. tough place to play. They play a tight man-to-man “Shaq had a great game for us off the bench,” and like to pressure the ball all the time.”
