ALBANY — Investigators had hoped for a swift arrest in the severe beating of a 2-year-old child, but by Tuesday afternoon authorities were less optimistic. “We don’t have an arrest imminent at this point,” Carroll County Sheriff Chris Conley said in a phone call on Tuesday afternoon. Conley had sounded more positive both the day before and earlier Tuesday, suggesting news of an arrest would likely come anytime. He was probably too optimistic in those earlier statements, he said. “When there aren’t third-party witnesses, it’s a challenge.” While prospects of quick arrest have diminished, however, the child’s chances of survival are looking up. “He did make it through the night,” Conley said, and underwent surgery Tuesday morning. Every hour the child holds on, he said, his outlook improves. “There’s hope.” The boy was brought in to the hospital just after 9 a.m. Monday with serious injuries all over his body. Authorities are calling the beating “a domestic-related crime.” “We’re not sure what the relationship is,” Conley said, “but it is domestic-related.”

NASA’s discovers 2 Earth-size planets

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

(NY Times) — In what amounts to a kind of holiday gift to the cosmos, astronomers from NASA’s Kepler spacecraft announced Tuesday that they had discovered a pair of planets the size of Earth orbiting a distant star. The new planets, one about as big as Earth, the other slightly smaller than Venus, are the smallest planets yet found beyond the solar system. Astronomers said the discovery showed that Kepler could indeed find planets as small as our own and was an encouraging sign that planet hunters would someday succeed in the goal of finding Earthlike abodes in the heavens. Since the first Jupitersize exoplanets, as they are known, were discovered nearly 15 years ago astronomers have been chipping away at the sky, finding smaller and smaller planets. “We are finally there,” said David Charbonneau, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, who was a member of the team that made the observations, led by his colleague Francois Fressin. The team reported its results in an online news conference Tuesday and in a paper being published in the journal Nature.

Republicans in House reject deal extending payroll tax cut

Sunni leader in Iraq denies ordering assassinations

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

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — House Republicans on Tuesday soundly rejected a bill approved by the Senate that would have extended the payroll tax cut for most Americans beyond the end of the year and allowed millions of unemployed people to continue receiving jobless benefits. The House vote, which

passed 229 to 193, also calls for establishing a negotiating committee so the two chambers can resolve their differences. Seven Republicans joined Democrats in opposition. But the Senate has left town for the year, and Democrats say they do not intend to call it back, putting continuation of the tax cut in jeopardy and leaving a

shadow over many unemployed Americans as the holidays near. It was far from clear whether the two sides would be able to bridge the gap by year’s end. If they fail to do so, payroll taxes for 160 million Americans will rise to 6.2 percent, from 4.2 percent, in January, for an average annual increase of roughly $1,000.

Mass march by Cairo women in protest over soldiers’ abuse CAIRO (NY Times) — Thousands of women marched through downtown Cairo on Tuesday evening to call for the end of military rule in an extraordinary expression of anger over images of soldiers beating, stripping and kicking a female demonstrator on the pavement of Tahrir Square. “Drag me, strip me, my brothers’ blood will cover me!” they chanted. “Where is the field marshal?” they demanded, referring to Mohamed Hussein Tantawi, the head of the military council holding

onto power here. “The girls of Egypt are here.” The event may have been the biggest women’s demonstration in Egypt’s history, and the most significant since a 1919 march led by pioneering Egyptian feminist Huda Shaarawi to protest British rule. The scale was stunning and unexpected in this patriarchal society. Previous attempts to organize women’s events in Tahrir Square this year have either fizzled or, in at least one case, ended in the physical harassment of the women who did show.

BAGHDAD (NY Times) — The political crisis in Iraq deepened on Tuesday, as the Sunni vice president angrily rebutted charges that he had ordered his security guards to assassinate government officials, saying that Shiite-backed security forces had induced the guards into false confessions. In a nationally televised news conference, the vice president, Tariq al-Hashimi, blamed the Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki for using the country’s security forces to persecute political opponents, specifically Sunnis. “The accusations have not been proven, so the accused is innocent until proven guilty,” Hashimi said at the news conference in Erbil, in the Kurdish north of Iraq. “I swear by God I didn’t do this disobedience against Iraqi blood, and I would never do this.” He added: “The goal is clear, it is not more than political slander.”

Flu virus discovered in some seals found dead

Fatal truck crash in Whitefield BY MELISSA GRIMA THE BERLIN DAILY SUN

WHITEFIELD — Slick road conditions are being blamed for a fatal truck crash in Whitefield on Tuesday morning. According to NH State Police, the driver of the truck was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which resulted in the load of steel beams shifting forward into the cab of the truck and crushing it. The name of the driver has not yet been released. J.R. Reed Inc. Motor Carrier of Dyer, Tennessee confirmed that it was their truck and driver involved in the crash and that the truck was bound for Canaan, Vt. The company declined to comment further on the incident or identity of the driver. A U.S. Border Station is under construction in Canaan, though it is not immediately known if this load of steel beams was bound for that project. The incident occurred at 5:50 a.m. as NH Department of Transportation road crews were actively treating local highways for the mixed precipitation that had fallen over-

night. Police said that the truck was headed north on Route 116, and lost traction coming down the hill into Whitefield. When the truck, a 2006 Peterbilt, approached the three-way intersection with Route 3, it failed to navigate the turn and struck a steel support and sheared off a gas pump at Lufkin’s Service Center before continuing through the parking lot, over the bank and into the riverbed below. Whitefield Police and Fire Departments, NH State Police, Lancaster Fire Department, NH DOT and NH Department of Environmental Services all responded to the incident. Onlookers came and went throughout the morning as the scene in the center of town caught the attention of local residents and passersby. State Police Technical Accident Reconstruction Unit was on site to assist in the investigation, which is being handled by Troopers Jesse Sherrill and Steven Riendeau of Troop F. A crane truck was brought in by late morning, to off-load the steel so that the truck and driver could be removed. The recovery effort was expected to take up much of the day, according to State Police.


GLOUCESTER, Mass. — A flu virus similar to one normally found in birds may be linked to the deaths of dozens of seals on New England beaches this fall. Researchers with the New England Aquarium said the influenza A subtype H3N8 was found in five of the 162 seals that were found dead on beaches in New Hampshire and other parts of New England this year. Experts believe the virus led to a bacterial pneumonia infection that killed the five seals. “We are now conducting tests on additional animals to learn more about the role this virus may have played in the die-off

and to better understand the virus itself,” said Dr. Teri Rowles, lead veterinarian of the Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Program for NOAA. Researchers said the strain of the flu virus appears to have a low risk of transmission to humans. They said it’s not the H5N1 virus that caused a global pandemic in 2007 or the H1N1 virus from 2009. Experts said the H3N8 virus is usually found in wild birds, and a variety of it infects horses and dogs. They said this is the first time it has been associated with a large scale die-off of marine mammals. —Courtesy of WMUR

14 percent more deer killed this season in N.H. CONCORD — New Hampshire officials say hunters killed more than 11,000 deer this hunting season — a 14 percent increase over last year. Bear hunters did not fare so well. New Hampshire Fish and Game officials said Tuesday that hunters killed 418 bears — a 41 percent drop from last year. Hunting season ended Dec. 15, which was the last day of archery deer season. Officials said New Hampshire has an estimated 85,000 deer, and this

year’s hunting season reduced the population by about 13 percent. Officials estimate that 60,000 people hunt in New Hampshire, boosting the state’s economy by $75 million in hunting-related expenses. State wildlife biologists said the higher deer harvest this year indicates the deer population is recovering from a series of bad winters that thinned the deer population. —Courtesy of WMUR

Don’t let Newt steal narrative of Christmas To the editor: Do not let Newt Gingrich steal the narrative of Christmas, with his statements about Palestine. John Sununu was right to respond by drawing people’s attention to the plight of Arab Christians who were displaced from Pal-

estine with many seeking refuge in Lebanon. If the New Hampshire Republican party would like to give Sununu a ‘well done,’ then vote for him on the write in box for vice president. Merry Christmas. Michael Callis Eaton

Banks are more dangerous than armies To the editor: It seems timely and appropriate that I share with you these words from Thomas Jefferson: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their cur-

rency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property — until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” Mark Hounsell Conway

What does Christmas mean to you? To the editor: What does Christmas mean to you? To some, Christmas is a day off from work, or just another Holiday. To some, it’s going to a Christmas party, having a few drinks, telling some jokes, a few more drinks — having a good old time. To some, Christmas has little or no meaning at all; they don’t believe in Jesus, they don’t believe in God, the Holy Bible says, “The fool says in his heart there is no God.” (Psalm 53.1) To some Christmas is celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, or Lord and Savior. God’s perfect gift to the whole world. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (St. John 3.16) To some Christmas is decorating a Christmas tree,

exchanging gifts with family and friends, going to church, singing Christmas carols. A Christmas dinner with family and friends. So let us remember the true meaning of Christmas. “Jesus is the reason for the season.” Accept him as Lord and Savior, and saved, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10.9 and 10) Reject him, and be lost. “Jesus said, verily, verily, say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (St. John 3.3) Salvation is free, and it is the very best Christmas gif that you will ever receive. Wishing everyone a merry and blessed Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year! Joe Fritz Freyburg, Maine

Thanks for support of Kiwanis Club’s fourth annual Autumn Express To the editor: Last Sunday, the Mount Washington Valley Kiwanis hosted the fourth annual Autumn Express excursion to Crawford Notch aboard the Conway Scenic Railroad. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank those individuals and businesses that provided support for this greatly successful endeavor. The event raised significant funds for our club’s ongoing support of the many children’s projects and needs here in the valley. The Conway Scenic Railroad has provided us this venue for the fourth time. A big thank you goes out to Russ Seybold and the staff at the railroad who assisted us with advertising, reservations, advice, and of course operating the train. Thanks also to: The Conway Daily Sun for again supporting us in advertising; WPKQ and Magic 104 for their on air promotion; the Minuteman Press for print support; the Chef’s Market for meal support; Mount Washington Graph-FX and

Residence Inn by Marriott for additional print and advertising assistance; Bob and Nancy Marquis for photographic equipment, and Sandy Hall and the Kennett High Art Department for painting the sign on the photo arbor. Thanks, of course, to the Kiwanis Autumn Express Committee members who donated many hours in the planning, preparation and execution of the myriad of functions required to make the day a success. Thanks to all the Kiwanis members, family and friends who helped aboard the train hosting the guests, serving food and making passengers feel at home. Thank you to the five members of the Kennett Key Club who enthusiastically ran about the train delivering souvenir photographs and helping with fund raising. And finally, heartfelt thanks to the over 300 passengers who joined us for this unique and fun day on the rails. Jeff Bailey, chair Kiwanis Autumn Express Committee

Progressives at work to make us a nation of Scrooges To the editor: In her column of Nov. 25, “Birthers and Despots,” Susan Bruce attacked, obviously without having read, the report issued on November 1 by the statutory committee I chaired whose charge was to review state participation in federal grant-in-aid programs. The primary motivation for establishing this committee was the stark reality that more than 30 percent of the operating budget of the state of New Hampshire consists of federal grants and that 40 percent of the expenditures of the federal government are borrowed. It being obvious that this state of affairs is unsustainable, that the federal government will have to reduce expenditures, and that this will inevitably be reflected in reductions in federal aid to states, the Legislature determined that the state of New Hampshire should begin planning accordingly. Secondarily, but equally important, was the consideration that to the extent that funding of governmental activities and administration of its use are diverted to more remote levels of government, representative government is undermined, accountability is lost, and individual liberty is threatened. Ms. Bruce states that the committee wants to ensure that New Hampshire receives no federal aid dollars for anything. This is false. The committee did not take issue, for example, with federal funding of highways or veterans benefits, because such assistance relates to specific constitutional provisions authorizing Congress to regulate commerce among the states, to raise and support armies, and to provide and maintain a navy. There is no general authority, however, for federal intervention in matters relating to the health, safety and welfare of individuals, which were among the powers reserved by the states. The powers not delegated to the federal government certainly include such minutia of purely local concern as the weatherization and fuel assistance programs focused on by Ms. Bruce. The committee’s

focus being on federal funding, it took no position on what the state may choose to do concerning these programs other than to make the cautionary observation, in the words quoted by Ms. Bruce, that when government subsidizes irresponsible behavior and poor decision-making, it will likely generate more of both. But she fails to quote the report’s very next sentence, which reads: “[I] f the state of New Hampshire considers assistance in the purchase of home heating oil for needful citizens and the preservation of its sovereignty both to be worthwhile, it must provide and pay for such assistance itself and cease accepting federal funding and the accompanying federal rules.” Ms. Bruce’s comparison of the committee’s recommendations with the views of Ebenezer Scrooge typifies Democrats’ tendency to confound acts of governmental coercion with acts of individual charity. I seriously doubt that any member of the committee would turn away a neighbor in need, but as state legislators we are dealing with the expenditure of other people’s money. Scrooge, of course, was the fellow who seized on the existence of government programs to excuse himself from any responsibility to the less fortunate: “Are there no prisons? And the Union workhouses? Are they still in operation? The Treadmill and the Poor Law are in full vigor, then?...I help to support the establishments I have mentioned — they cost enough; and those who are badly off must go there.” The twin evils of the Progressive impulse to make public assistance the primary function of government are to expand the ranks of the dependent and to suppress the benevolent spirit of the rest. It is Progressives and Democrats, not Republicans, who are hard at work to make us a nation of Scrooges. Rep. Gregory M. Sorg, chair Chapter 226 Committee Franconia

Thanks for support as I go through struggle with cancer To the editor: To the people of Lovell and surrounding communities who have supported me and my family, Thank You! Close to 500 people attended the benefit dinner on Dec. 3 for me and my family and it was a great success. The support has come in various forms: spiritual, emotional and financial. This all means so much to me as I go through my struggle with cancer. I would like to thank personally Scott Thomas, who is an inspiration to me as he continues with his own battle with cancer and who spearheaded the benefit dinner. To Mark Moulton, Tom McKenzie and the Lovell Volunteer Fire Department for hosting the dinner, Mark Kurnick for cooking the dinner and to all of the people who donated desserts as

well as their time. A special thanks to F.W. Webb for donating items for the raffle. To my family and extended family we couldn’t go through this without your support. If I could thank everyone personally for all they have done we would and if given the opportunity to do so, we will. It has been quite heartwarming to get so much support from the community and it fills my heart and gives me strength to continue to go through the treatments. Also, the strength that has been gained by the survivors and their families who have walked this walk before me has given me much hope. Thank you for sharing your stories. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Paul and Christine McLaughlin Lovell

and First Church of Christ Congregational, United Church of Christ had been recognized by the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension as the “New Hampshire State Champion Blue Spruce” in the state's “Big Tree Program.” In addition to the UNH Cooperative Extension, the program is sponsored by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and the N.H. Division of Forests and Lands. “It's a beautiful tree. It's located between the center and the clothing depot, right off Main Street. I've always thought it would be a great tree to get decorated for Christmas. Who knows, maybe now that it is a state champion tree, someone will help to decorate it for next year,” said Leighton Tuesday. In a congratulatory letter from the extension service, national resources steward/state coordinator Carolyn Enz Page wrote that the tall, well-propor-

tioned blue spruce was measured by Kamal Nath and Wendy Scribner of the New Hampshire Big Tree Program and that it has the identification number of 616 in the state data base. “As steward of this fine specimen,” writes Page, “we ask you to take good care of it by keeping it safe and healthy. For information about caring for trees, please call your Cooperative Extension County Forester.” She added that a Big Tree team will measure the tree periodically. The Vaughan Service's blue spruce was inspected Aug. 19. The tree's scientific name species is Picea pungens; its common name is Blue Spruce. It is 84 feet high and its average crown spread is 34 feet. Its circumference is 109 inches. All Big Tree honorees are eligible to place an engraved sign and post to be placed in the ground near each tree. Vaughan Community Service Inc. chair Ron Pratt

said he is sure that the board will buy the plaque, which costs $50. History of the Big Tree program New Hampshire has a long and interesting history of association with trees, according to the extension website. “Since the days when mast pines were harvested for the British Navy,” notes the website, “trees have played an integral role in our state's character and economy. The days when the vast expanse of original forest covered most of the state have gone. Today, relatively few large, venerable trees remain to remind us of those earlier times.” In an effort to “find, record, and recognize these magnificent individual trees,” the New Hampshire Big Tree Program was started in 1950. The list of recorded champions now includes more than 200 giants of their kind. Natural resources steward volunteers help identify, measure, and record these big trees at the state, county and national levels. The N.H. Big Tree program cooperates with the National Register of Big Trees through American Forests. According to the Extension Service, the goal of the program is: * To locate the most outstanding examples of the various tree species which grow in New Hampshire. * To obtain the cooperation of tree owners to protect and preserve specimens as landmarks for future generations to enjoy. * To stimulate interest in and greater appreciation of trees as a natural resource.

The beating was severe enough to cause trauma to almost every part of the boy’s body. “He was airlifted from Conway to Maine Medical,” Conley said. Police executed a search warrant in connection with the case Monday evening, but they have yet to obtain an arrest warrant. The search warrant was issued out of the Conway courthouse on Monday, but it was sealed. The investigation has centered around the Golden Oaks mobile home park, where WMUR reported on Tuesday a home was marked off with crime scene tape and vehicles from the sheriff’s office were parked outside. The State Police has been working with sheriff’s office on the case, and the major crimes unit was there on Monday. A call to the State Police detective assigned to the case was not returned by press time.

Maine arrest leads to recovery of items stolen from Conway home BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Police used a recovered cell phone to tie a man arrested for stealing jewelry from a State Trooper’s home in Maine to a similar crime in Conway. The connection isn’t strong enough charge the man for anything in New Hampshire, Conway Police Lt. Chris Perley said on Thursday, but “this is at least a significant step forward” in the case. Maine State Police arrested Thor Sinclair Sr., 38, of Naples, on charges of burglary and theft by unauthorized taking for allegedly breaking into the Waterford, Maine, home of State Trooper Andre Paradis and stealing jewelry. Police found Sinclair after a witness provided investigators with a partial license plate number and vehicle description connected to him, according to the Lewiston Sun Journal. When police arrested Sinclair they found material they suspected came from other burglaries. “One of the items was a cell phone,” Maine State Trooper Tom Welch said. He immediately scrolled through the contacts and placed a call to a likely name. A Conway woman answered. The woman’s home had been burglarized several weeks earlier. The Conway Police Department was already investigating that incident. Several items matched the description of property stolen from the house. Trooper Welch brought some them to Conway. “One victim identified four or five pieces,” he said. Local authorities were hesitant to identify Sinclair as the burglar, however. Possession of stolen property isn’t enough to prove burglary, Perley said, so the investigation remains open. Welch said it's likely that Sinclair, aided by his wife, has committed a number of burglaries, but investigators are not sure how many. “We know it’s more than the one we have here in Maine.” Sinclair’s wife, identified by the Sun Journal as Kristy Engleheart, has not been arrested, Welch said, and is cooperating with investigators. The theft charge leveled against Sinclair is a misdemeanor at this point. It could be increased to a felony, Welch said, depending on the value of the stolen property recovered. The burglary charge is already a felony. Sinclair is due to appear in Oxford County Superior Court on March 6, according to the Sun Journal.

Fund-raisers for Ian Meserve to include Cranmore event and 16-hour hockey game at Ham BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Two fund-raisers are planned by the community to help raise funds for local football coach, assistant North Conway Country Club golf pro, Cranmore ski coach, avid ice hockey player and bartender Ian Meserve. The first is an event at Cranmore Mountain Resort Jan. 6 from 6 to 9 p.m., and the second is “Ian's Endless Hockey Game” at the Ham Ice Arena, Feb. 11 and 12. Meserve — who was diagnosed in October with cancer — has been undergoing treatment at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Hanover. Friends and family are coordinating the efforts, according to Meserve's cousin, Mandi Manoogian, of Tamworth and friend Kym Campfield of North Conway. The fund-raiser at Cranmore Mountain Resort Jan. 6 is set for 6 to 9 p.m. The event will include a raffle that is to feature such prizes as gift certificates to restaurants in the valley, rounds of golf for four, a weekend getaway to Cape Cod, and much more. Donations will be accepted at the door (suggested $10 minimum per person). “We have raised a lot of donations, thanks to how people in this valley feel about my cousin,” said Manoogian. Those wishing to make tax-deductible donations can make checks payable to Vaughan Community Services, Ian Meserve Fund, 2503 White Mountain Highway PO Box 401 North Conway 03860. Donations for the auction are being accepted through Jan. 5. They may be dropped off at the Group Sales office at Cranmore Mountain,

1 Skimobile Road, North Conway, 03860. A “Fundraiser for Ian” Facebook page has been set up to share information on the event. For more information, email kymcampfield@yahoo. com. ‘Ian’s Endless Hockey Game’ Darrell Umlah, executive director of the Ham Arena, says everyone is looking forward to helping out the cause by playing in “Ian's Endless Hockey Game.” “We're hoping to get 240 players, or 120 per team, with play from 8 at night to noon the next day. We'll have different divisions, including a pond hockey 'no liftee' class for people who want to help but who are less experienced. If they need skates, we can let them borrow some. Helmets will be required of everyone,” said Umlah, who said each player will be charged $25. The two teams will be broken down into different brackets for men's open, men's over 40, women's, co-ed, and pond hockey. “I ask people to give me a call if they would like to play. I have a spread sheet I am putting together for all the different brackets,” said Umlah. The festivities will end with a barbecue Sunday. Umlah said sponsors are stepping forward to offer assistance. “Ian's a great guy. We're really excited about doing what we can for him, and bringing together his friends from the golf and skiing world and his hockey friends to have a good time and raise a bit of money to help him and his family,” said Umlah. For more information, visit or call Umlah at the Ham at 447-5886 or 447-5888.

Two brothers sentenced in connection with April altercation in Tamworth BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — Two brothers who were once charged with attempted murder and accomplice were convicted and sentenced on lesser charges in Carroll County Superior Court. The Fraser brothers, Robert, 28, of Ossipee, and Joshua, 23, of Ossipee, were involved in a violent altercation with Robert Bellini on April 5 at 78 Berry Lane in Tamworth. Joshua Fraser fired a gun at Bellini and Robert Fraser hit Bellini with a car. Prosecutors charged Joshua Fraser with attempted murder and Robert Fraser with accomplice to attempted murder but convicted them on lesser charges. Several other charges against the brothers were also dropped. In September, Joshua Fraser pleaded guilty to felon in possession of a weapon and criminal threatening and received a four- to 10-year prison sentence, which he is currently serving in Concord. Robert Fraser received a three and one half- to seven-year prison sentence that was deferred for three years — meaning that Robert Fraser is free for now but will have to come back to court in three years to show why he doesn't belong behind bars. Robert Fraser was also given $600 in fines. Robert Fraser's sentence was based on him pleading guilty to misdemeanor transportation of a controlled drug and felony second-degree assault. Judge Steven Houran made a point of ordering the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles to not take Robert Frasers' driver's license. The judge did say Robert Fraser must get a licensed drug and alcohol councilor evaluation and have no contact with Bellini. County attorney Tom Dewhurst said Josh Fraser received a much tougher sentence is because he fired the gun. Both parties arrived at the sentence through a negotiated plea. "He had the gun and fired it," said Dewhurst of Josh Fraser. "That's totally unacceptable," said Dewhurst. Meanwhile, said Dewhurst, Robert Fraser is on a "very tight leash."

Ice-carving competition returns to The Wentworth Hotel Jan. 9 JACKSON — Top carvers from around New England will return for the 17th annual Great Ice Carvers of New England Invitational Ice Carving Competition at The Wentworth Hotel on Monday, Jan. 9, at 10 a.m. This event allows competitors three hours to transform a 300-pound block of ice into a work of art. Each participant may have his or her tools of preference, but expect to see chainsaws, chisels, picks and blow torches as the birds, animals, buildings and other creations come to life on the front porch of the turn-of-the century New England inn. “I enjoy having all the vacationers, residents and school children at the competition as the participants transform ice into art,” said Fritz Koeppel, owner and general manager of The Wentworth. “The sculptures enhance the beauty of The Wentworth both day and night.” Several years ago, special lighting and display stands were installed for optimum nighttime viewing of the finished sculptures. Each year hun-

dreds of cars and strollers slowly pass by in the evenings to view these fleeting works of art. There are still a few openings for the competition. Prizes include $500 cash for first place, $250 cash for second and third prize is an overnight stay for two in one of the Wentworth’s Jacuzzi suites with a fireplace, four-course dinner and full country breakfast. The awards ceremony takes place in the lobby of The Wentworth. Anyone interested should contact Kathleen DeVitto, sales administrator at The Wentworth, at 383-9700 or for more information.

TripAdvisor ranks North Conway region least expensive ski destination in Northeast CONWAY — TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel review site, last week launched its inaugural TripIndex Ski – a cost comparison of 20 popular ski destinations across the United States and Canada — and North Conway was deemed the least expensive ski destination in the Northeast and the second least expensive destination for skiing in the U.S. TripAdvisor’s TripIndex Ski presents the combined cost of one night’s hotel accommodation, a basic ski-rental package, a one-day lift ticket, a local meal and a bottle/glass of beer at top ski des-

Vito Marcello and family host Christmas party for Army recruiters, soldiers BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Soldiers and their families were given a special holiday treat when they held their Christmas party in North Conway last Saturday. Playing a key role in the party was Army Staff Sgt. Derrick Mead, 33, a Mount Washington Valley native and a 1997 graduate of Kennett High, and son of Mary and Ralph Mead of Duprey Road in North Conway. Formerly an Army-trained sniper and instructor, with three tours of duty in Iraq, the 11-year Army veteran for the past five months has been a recruiter based in Berlin with fellow Staff Sgt. Patrick Sens. That post allows him to live back home near his parents with his wife — 1995 Kennett High graduate Sara (Brace) Mead — and their four daughters. They are renovating one of their parents' Duprey Road homes, according to Mead. He was asked by a fellow recruiter from Manchester to help arrange the holiday Christmas

Yet North Conway scored just over a dollar higher on TripAdvisor’s TripIndex Ski at $239.88. With a price tag of $746, Vail, Colo. emerged as the priciest ski spot in the country. “For travelers who are looking for a snowy escape, TripIndex Ski provides an easy way to compare the

Margarita Grill did a great job at bringing in a variety of artisan vendors to meet everyone’s tastes, and the food and drink accomplished the same goal. which led him to call his old friend, Vito Marcello, of Vito Marcello's Italian Bistro of North Conway Village. “I asked Vito, whom I've known for a long time, if we could use his restaurant for a potluck kind of gathering. He said absolutely — but then he said, 'But this is what we're going to do. We're going to have pizza for the kids, and pasta, pasta salads and desserts.' I said, 'Vito, we've got see next page

over 100 people coming to this thing!' But he wouldn't take no for an answer.” Soldiers and their families began showing up at 1 p.m. Saturday. They were greeted by Vito, his mother Angela and sister Toni Petell, as well as by their staff, all of whom had come in early to cater the holiday feast, which lasted until 3 p.m. An Army Santa was among the guests. He gave out gifts, which included stocking stuffers for the children. “Unbeknownst to us,” said Mead, who has known the Marcello family since they first opened Bellini's in North Conway on Seavey Street in 1988, “Vito had had his staff go out and buy stockings which they filled with chocolates and Matchbox cars and the like.” The feast was much appreciated, according to Mead. “The food was unbelievable. I went up three times for just for the servings of the Broccoli Chicken Alfredo. They had cakes and cookies, and individual jello cups, which the kids loved. We can't thank the

Marcello family and their staff enough,” said Mead. The soldiers presented the Marcello family with special awards of recognition during the party in addition to recognizing the company's soldiers. “Our company commander Capt. Andrew Masone gave Vito and his family a special citation,” said Mead, who said the soldiers were truly moved by the Marcello family and staff's generosity. “They would never ask for publicity,” said Mead,“but I know what he does for police and firefighters and the military. I just think that as a soldier, coming back to this area, it's awesome to know that people are patriots and they're still out there. They care, and they want to do something nice for soldiers.” “Everyone said that bar none it was the best Christmas party that any had ever been to in years,” added Mead, who said that Vito Marcello often sent him care packages of his sauces when he was stationed in Georgia. On Netflix Mead was a sniper all three of his tours of duty in Iraq in 2003


during Operation Iraqi Freedom, and in 2005 and 2007-'08. He most recently was an instructor for the U.S. Army's sniper school in Fort Benning, Ga. He was featured in the video, “Modern Sniper,” on Netflix. Asked how he felt about the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq after 11 years this past week, Mead said, “No comment. I'm a soldier.” The Marcello family's restaurant business began in 1927 in Cranston, R.I. It grew into a number of locations in southern New England “famous for authentic Italian 'more than you can eat' meals,” according to the restaurant's website. The family recently moved its operations from Willow Common on Route 16, the site now occupied by Smoke and Water, back to its original Seavey Street location.

Profile Motors collecting food for local pantry CONWAY — Profile Motors is inviting community members to "fill the truck" for the local food pantry. The truck to be filled is located in the Profile Motors showroom at 38 Towle Road in Conway. The food drive is running through the remainder of the year. In addition, Profile is offering a special $19.95 oil change with a donation

of three or more cans of non-perishable food. And with the purchase of a new or pre-owned vehicle, Profile will donate $50 per transaction to the food pantry. Profile Motors has donated thousands of dollars to the community over the years. Most recent was a $500 donation to the North Conway Community Center.

most popular ski destinations across North America,” said Karen Drake, senior director of communications at TripAdvisor. “TripIndex Ski is a useful tool for travelers who are looking to get the best bang for their buck this winter season.” According to TripAdvisor, the TripIndex Ski prices out the following items in each destination: per night cost of a hotel (between December 2011 and March 2012 within five miles of the destination), cost of a basic ski-rental package, cost of a lift ticket, cost of a meal (burger and fries from three local restaurants on or near the mountain) and cost of an alcoholic drink (domestic beer at three local pubs on or near the mountain). Prices were collected through a variety of research methods, and apply to travel between December 2011 and March 2012. The "basket" of items is representative of the common items many travelers will purchase while on a ski vacation says TripAdvisor. The complete TripIndex Ski list can be viewed at TripIndexSkiUS. “It means a lot to us to learn that TripAdvisor, a trusted trip planning resource for travelers, has recognized that North Conway and the surrounding region offers an affordable ski destination,” said Janice Crawford, executive director of the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. “With 13 ski resorts and cross-country centers all offering great skiing and value, skiers need look no further than the Northeast’s most affordable ski destination this winter." Mount Washington Valley’s ski resorts are making snow as temperatures allow and hope to be open for the Christmas vacation week.

Berlin City Auto Group names Drive for Education recipients Berlin City Auto Group, a family of dealerships founded in 1980 in New England, and its Drive for Education foundation, a program created by the employees of Berlin City Auto Group, announced the award recipients in its Drive for Education program. Donating $60,000 to 19 K-12 schools spanning across New England, Berlin City Auto Group has met its annual goal of awarding more than $100,000 to local schools, Berlin City Auto Group reported. Recipient schools will be honored with a check presentation at a Berlin City Auto Group dealership in Maine, Vermont or New Hampshire, Dec. 19-21. To be considered for the program, a school official had to submit a short essay to Berlin City Auto Group by Nov. 30 explaining how their school would use a donation of up to $3,500. Berlin City’s Brand Ambassadors, a group of employees that lead the dealerships’ community involvement campaigns, evaluated the needs of each school and selected the winners accordingly. ”We’re thrilled to have met our goal of $100,000 in donations to New England schools this year,” said Yegor Malinovskii, vice president at Berlin City Auto Group. “We believe in giving back to the community and helping our local schools succeed in education.” Berlin City Auto Group held a

Everett Herbert Eastman

Everett Herbert Eastman, 84, of Chatham, passed away peacefully at his homestead farm on Saturday, Dec. 17, 2011 with his son Jason by his side. Herb was born on Aug. 10, 1927 at his homestead farm in Chatham and was the eldest of seven children of Everett and Carrie Eastman. Growing up, he worked on the farm and spent much quality time with his "Uncle Hickory." Herb started working for the State of New Hampshire in 1943 until he was drafted by the Army and was a veteran of World War II and served his country in Okinawa, Japan. Upon his return, he continued his career with the State of New Hampshire until his retirement in December 1984. During his career with the State, he was employed as the road patrolman in Chatham and Crawford Notch. After his retirement, Herb worked for Gordon Brown Logging for seven years. He started in the repair shop and then moved on to ground work where he assisted in the construction of two Forest Service roads. He also worked for Indian Acres/Forest Acres as well as other contractors as a carpenter which he enjoyed very much. Herb was happily married to his late wife, Kathryn (Jordan) Eastman, of Fryeburg, Maine, for 27 years. During their life together they enjoyed dancing, camping, traveling and being with friends and family. After the decease of his beloved wife, he continued woodworking, mowing fields, splitting wood, hunting, breaking and fixing the tractors and tinkering to stay busy and active. Herb attended the Fryeburg New Church every Sunday and also partic-

ipated in his Bible study group each week. He also served as a dedicated Selectman for the Town of Chatham from March 1989 until March 2007. On Dec. 10, 2011, Herb was proud to be best man in his son's wedding. Through Herb's life experiences, he offered to all who knew him and to anyone he met, many, many stories and wisdom. He was well know for his helping hand, sense of humor and his jokes. Herb lead a full life and had an abundance of friends and family. Herb is predeceased by his wife, Kathryn (Jordan) Eastman. He is survived by his son, Jason S. Eastman and his wife, Jennifer (Zulker) Eastman, of Chatham; his brother, Norman Eastman, of Soldotna, Alaska; his brother, Richard Eastman and his wife, Loretta Eastman, of Chatham; his brother, Frank Eastman and his wife, Barbara Eastman, of Chatham; his brother, Nelson Eastman, of Chatham; his brother, Charles Eastman and his wife, Marilyn Eastman, of Silver Lake; his sister, Jean Eastman, of Chatham, as well as many nieces and nephews. He is also predeceased by his special companions Ola Mae Dickey Wheaton and Anna Eastman both of whom he had many good memories with. A graveside service will be held later in the spring at Chatham Center Cemetery in Center Chatham. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Fryeburg New Church, 12 Oxford Street, Fryeburg, ME, 04037 in memory of Everett "Herb" Eastman. Arrangements are made with Wood Funeral Home, Fryeburg. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at

Michael John Small

After a 9-month battle with cancer, Michael John Small, 61, passed away on Dec. 17, 2011 in the wonderful White Mountains of New Hampshire with his mother and sister by his side. Born Nov. 22, 1950, the son of the late John Henry Small. He is survived by his daughter, Courtney; his son, Eoin; his mother, Irma; his sister, Gwendolyn; and his nephew, Michael. His passions in life were his children, golf, scuba diving and books which he read every day.

Lovell Town Column

In passing he wanted to thank his hospice caretakers, his doctors — including Dr. Heidi Root, friends and many acquaintances for being a part of his life. His cremated ashes will be dispersed three miles due East of 803 Ocean Boulevard in Hampton at a later date this spring. In lieu of gifts of flowers, memorial donations, if any, should be made to North Conway Hospice, North Conway.

‘A Christmas Story’ for Shannon I wrote this poem for my granddaughter Shannon when she was 5 years old, she is now 23. To all my readers, I am blessed to be able to write this column for you. God keep you all and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. A Christmas Story One evening my small grandchild climbed upon my knee In a quiet voice she asked of me Grandma why do we celebrate and give presents on Christmas Day? I pondered a moment searching for the words to say In the Bible it says, God created the heavens and earth, I began When all was right he created man The earth and his people prospered which made him glad But soon he saw evil and this made him sad So he decided to send someone to teach them what was right It happened on a cold winter’s night

He sent his only son Jesus to earth Christmas is the day of his birth Mary his mother was a virgin maid On a lowly manger was the baby laid Angels told shepherds to go witness the event And Wise Men from afar led by a starlight heaven sent Gifts they brought to the newborn king While heavenly voices his praises they sing That is why we celebrate this holy day With presents and carols joyously gay I looked to see if she understood what I said When a wonderful warm feeling came over me instead For on her face when I took a peek Was a great big smile though she was fast asleep I lean over placed a kiss on her brow Content to sit as we were now And holding her small body remembering Christmases past I prayed there could be peace on Earth Good will to man at last

OH NO... 40!!

by Scott Adams

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You see life as a privilege. And you’ll help someone who takes life for granted. You won’t have to do anything special to provide this help. Just being you -- amazed by what life offers -- is enough. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ask friends for advice and help. Whatever is going on inside their heads, they will share with you. You have the kind of demeanor that makes people want to give you everything. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You won’t mind giving extra care to children, the elderly and/or other needy individuals in your life. Someone has to, and it just so happens that right now you have more to give. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your willingness to treat people the way they want to be treated will be most appreciated. What about you? Don’t you deserve some special treatment, too? Well, you do, and you will get it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Somehow you’ll manage to charm people without even trying. It’s not entirely a blessing. Sure, you’d rather have people like you than not. Still, you might be uncertain of what to do with all the attention. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 21). When you reflect back on this year, you’ll do so with a feeling of deep satisfaction. In January, you will learn a new language or assimilate with an interesting subculture. February brings intriguing social opportunities. There’s a shot at the “big time” in March. Changes in your family will favorably affect you in March. Gemini and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 7, 1, 24 and 28.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It used to be a “you or me” world. Now it’s a “you and me world,” and you find it easy to include others in your plans and find ways to help each other and mutually benefit from the effort. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll provide excellent conversation and entertainment for anyone lucky enough to be around you today. You’re not trying to be funny, but your natural humor will shine through. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s a strange predicament you’re in today. You’ll walk the fine line, deciding what to reveal and what to keep to yourself. You’ll do this with commendable grace. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You wish you could tell everyone to “just behave.” Actually, you can. And you will. Whether or not they listen is another story. But you can be very convincing, especially when you get that serious look in your eye. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Because of your sophisticated mind, you can respect the other person’s point of view even when you don’t share it. You treat the other person with dignity and set a tone of behavior for both of you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll make a goal, fully knowing that it may be futile. That part really doesn’t matter. That you have the heart and conviction is what matters most. In fact, it can make the impossible come true. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). How can you speak convincingly about something you know little about? You can’t. That’s why you’ll dive in and try to learn everything there is to know about your subject of interest.

Yesterday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, December 21, 2011— Page 25

Today is Wednesday, Dec. 21, the 355th day of 2011. There are 10 days left in the year. Winter arrives Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 21, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln signed a congressional act authorizing the Navy Medal of Honor. On this date: In 1620, Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower went ashore for the first time at present-day Plymouth, Mass. In 1879, the Henrik Ibsen play “A Doll’s House” premiered at the Royal Theater in Copenhagen. In 1910, 344 coal miners were killed in Britain’s Pretoria Pit Disaster. In 1945, Gen. George S. Patton died in Heidelberg, Germany, of injuries from a car accident. In 1948, the state of Eire, or Ireland, passed an act declaring itself a republic. In 1958, Charles de Gaulle was elected to a seven-year term as the first president of the Fifth Republic of France. In 1971, the U.N. Security Council chose Kurt Waldheim to succeed U Thant as Secretary-General. In 1976, the Liberian-registered tanker Argo Merchant broke apart near Nantucket Island, off Massachusetts, almost a week after running aground, spilling 7.5 million gallons of oil into the North Atlantic. In 1988, 270 people were killed when a terrorist bomb exploded aboard a Pam Am Boeing 747 over Lockerbie, Scotland, sending wreckage crashing to the ground. In 1991, eleven of the 12 former Soviet republics proclaimed the birth of the Commonwealth of Independent States and the death of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. One year ago: The Census Bureau announced that the nation’s population on April 1, 2010, was 308,745,538, up from 281.4 million a decade earlier. A divided Federal Communications Commission approved, 3-2, new rules known as “net neutrality” meant to prohibit broadband companies from interfering with Internet traffic flowing to their customers. Today’s Birthdays: Country singer Freddie Hart is 85. Actor Ed Nelson is 83. Talk show host Phil Donahue is 76. Actress Jane Fonda is 74. Actor Larry Bryggman is 73. Singer Carla Thomas is 69. Musician Albert Lee is 68. Actor Samuel L. Jackson is 63. Singer Betty Wright is 58. International Tennis Hall-of-Famer Chris Evert is 57. Actress Jane Kaczmarek is 56.

Page 28 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, December 21, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m a 25-year-old guy with a unique problem. My father has been dating a woman since I was 16 who has a daughter my age named “Emma.” Over the years Emma and I became good friends -- then more than that. We hooked up a few times. About a year ago, I told her I had developed feelings for her, which drove her off pretty fast. We haven’t talked since. She now lives in another state with her boyfriend, and I’m happy for her. With the holidays here, Dad expects me to go to all of the events and get-togethers. I made up excuses last year to avoid them, but don’t think I can do that again. I want to escape the awkward interaction with Emma and her boyfriend because I still have feelings for her. I don’t want to disappoint Dad, but I don’t know how to handle this. Help, please. -- RUNNING FROM THE HOLIDAYS DEAR RUNNING: You don’t have to attend “all” the events and get-togethers, but you should attend a few. When you do, consider bringing a friend with you and minimizing the contact you have with Emma and her boyfriend. Observe the social amenities, keep the conversation brief and casual, and concentrate on the rest of the family. While the initial contact may be painful, this is no different than any other romance that didn’t work out. The awkwardness will pass if you concentrate on something else. DEAR ABBY: I have been living with my daughter and her family for two years because I lost my job. I don’t pay rent, but help out with the utilities and buy my own groceries. I also baby-sit for them several days a week. The only money I have is an inheritance my father left me to live on, and it is

dissipating quickly. I have met a man and have fallen in love with him. I plan to move in with him soon. The problem is my daughter and sonin-law owe me money. They promised it would be repaid, but when I ask when, they give me the run-around. (They always have money for tattoos, movies and concerts, though.) They also expect me to baby-sit for them on weekends, but that’s the only time I can see my boyfriend. How do I tell them I want to live my own life? I want to be free and not have to worry about them needing me to baby-sit and making me feel guilty about it. I’m afraid they’ll say that because I lived with them, they no longer owe me the money. I don’t know how to tell them without it turning ugly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. -- FRUSTRATED IN K.C., MO. DEAR FRUSTRATED: I presume your daughter and sonin-law have met your boyfriend? Announce the good news that you will be living with him; it shouldn’t be shocking. Ask again for the money that they owe you. Be pleasant, but firm, and don’t let it escalate into an argument. If they say they don’t have it, ask them to sign (and date) a note promising to repay it at a later date. That will be your proof that a loan was extended. If they refuse, with no proof that you loaned them money, you won’t have leverage to force them to pay up. As for the baby-sitting, do it when it’s convenient for you. If they want their “freedom” on some weekends, let them pay you instead of a sitter and work off part of their obligation that way. But insist on cash.
