The budget season that wouldn’t end BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — Eleven was the number of the year in 2011 when it came to the Conway School District. It will be remembered as the year budget season went on
and on due to a ruling from the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration. The school budget took many paths on its weaving way to approval in August, four months later than planned. It was the budget that brought out a record number of people to run for seats on municipal budget
committee and stirred plenty of emotions. Members of the Conway School Board actually started working on the budget in April of 2010. The budget wasn't settled until August of 2011. see BUDGET YEAR page 5

Miami says hello to wealthy Brazilians MIAMI (NY Times) — Even in a city that has embraced so many waves of Latinos that it is jokingly referred to as the only South American capital in North America, no one group has been as courted and pampered as the Brazilians. Flush with cash from a booming economy and enamored of luxury, Brazilians are visiting South Florida in droves and spending millions of dollars on vacation condominiums, clothes, jewelry, furniture, cars and art, all of which are much less expensive here than in Brazil. As a thank-you, Floridians are creating innovative ways to make the Brazilians happy and to encourage them to keep dipping into their wallets. Real estate agents, for example, have cobbled together one-stopshopping firms that offer interior decorating and concierge services as well as legal advice and visa help. Some agents have even opened offices in Brazil to simplify the process. Aware that Brazilians will not spend freely unless they feel at home, shopping malls have enticed them by hiring Portuguese-speaking sales clerks to proffer Dolce & Gabbana dresses and Hublot watches. Even Target has posted helpwanted signs in Portuguese.

Italy’s debt cost dips, but its economic perils remain
ROME (NY Times) — Financial market pressure on Italy eased temporarily on Wednesday, with borrowing rates on some government-issued debt dropping by half. But the political pressure on the government of Prime Minister Mario Monti remained high — and rising. Last week, Monti won final approval of a $40 billion spending package of tax increases and
a pension change aimed at eliminating Italy’s budget deficit by 2013. With Italians starting to feel the pain and dissent growing in Parliament, Monti must act swiftly to stimulate Italy’s economy, which is already in recession and is expected by some forecasters to shrink in 2012. On Wednesday, the day his cabinet met to discuss growthboosting measures, Monti
appeared to receive some breathing room when interest rates on six-month treasury bills, a barometer of investor worry about Italy’s creditworthiness, dropped in half to 3.2 percent and rates on 10-year treasury bills dropped to 6.91 percent from above 7 percent, nearing the levels at which other eurozone countries such as Ireland and Greece needed bailouts.
Mourners line streets for Kim Jong-il’s funeral
SEOUL, South Korea (NY Times) — Kim Jongun, the designated dynastic heir to power in North Korea, walked alongside the hearse of his deceased father, Kim Jong-il, through snow-covered downtown Pyongyang on Wednesday, leading a state funeral that provided early glimpses of who is serving as guardians of the young untested leader. The extensive funeral was closely watched for signs of shifts in power in the country’s enigmatic leadership. Mr. Kim’s two elder brothers, Kim Jongnam and Kim Jong-chol, were nowhere to be seen. Leading the funeral alongside and behind Kim were a familiar mix of military generals and
party secretaries, including elderly stalwarts from the days of Kim Jong-il and his father, the North’s founding president, Kim Il-sung, and younger officials who expanded their influence while playing crucial roles in grooming the son as successor under the father’s tutelage. Most prominent were the two men whose names seldom fail to pop up when North Korea watchers tried to dissect the palace intrigues in the capital, Pyongyang: Jang Song-taek, Kim Jong-un’s uncle and vice chairman of the powerful National Defense Commission, and Ri Yong-ho, head of the North Korean military’s general staff.
Bishops: Rules on gay parents limit freedom of religion
(NY Times) — Catholic Charities in Illinois has served for more than 40 years as a major link in the state’s social service network for poor and neglected children. But now most of the Catholic Charities affiliates in Illinois are closing down rather than comply with a new requirement that says they can no longer receive state money if they turn away samesex couples as potential foster care and adoptive parents. For the nation’s Roman Catholic bishops, the outcome is a prime example of what they see as an escalating campaign by the government to trample on their religious freedom while expanding the rights of gay people. The idea that religious Americans are now the victims of government-backed persecution is now a frequent theme not just for Catholic bishops, but also for Republican presidential candidates and conservative evangelicals. “In the name of tolerance, we’re not being tolerated,” said Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki of the Diocese of Springfield, Ill.

Gallus, Bradley endorse Romney BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
BARTLETT — One local state senator joined a host of his colleagues in endorsing Mitt Romney last week, but another longtime Republican fixture has refused to weigh in. Mitt Romney trumpeted the endorsement of John Gallus, the state senator from Berlin who represents the Mount Washington Valley towns of Bartlett, Jackson, Albany and Chatham, in his bid for the GOP nomination on Thursday. “John understands that in order to return fiscal sanity to Washington, our government needs to cut spending and live within its means,” Romney said in an e-mail statement. “I am proud to have earned his support and look forward to campaigning with him across the North Country.” Gallus joins his colleague to the south, Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, and eight other Republican state senators in supporting the former Massachusetts governor. Gallus cited Romney’s private sector experience as to why he would make the best candidate. “As a successful businessman and a fiscally conservative governor,” Gallus said, “Mitt knows how to balance a budget and fix our broken economy. “Republicans need to nominate a candidate who can defeat President Obama and reverse the damage caused by his disastrous fiscal policies,” he said. “Over the past several months, Governor Romney has clearly demonstrated that he is the most qualified candidate and the strongest
Republican to take on the president.” While much of the Republican establishment is openly supporting Romney, however, one long-time local politician is holding back from taking a side. Republican representative Gene Chandler has kept his mouth shut, despite the primary only being weeks away. “I won’t be endorsing anyone other than Romney,” Chandler said on Thursday, but there is a good chance he won’t endorse at all. Five former New Hampshire House speakers dating as far back as far as 1975 have come out for Romney. Chandler's absence, being is a longtime Bartlett rep and speaker of the New Hampshire House from 2001 to 2004, is marked. “Unfortunately, having been around too long, I have many friends,” Chandler said. One close friend is working on a competing campaign, he said, which has kept him from voicing his opinion. In the beginning stages Chandler could rely on his work for U.S. Congressman Charlie Bass for an excuse for why he hadn’t endorsed. “Early on I couldn’t take a position,” he said. “That was actually a good thing,” it kept people from asking. Once it became clear he could support whomever he chose, however, calls started coming in. “I just don’t know what I’m going to do,” Chandler said. He may throw in with Romney before the primary day, or he may just keep his opinion to himself. No one else is in the running for his endorsement, however.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Thursday, December 29, 2011— Page 5
BUDGET YEAR from page one
The budget committee and Conway School District administrators were not on the same page from the outset of budget season. The school board voted 6-1 (Randy Davison in the minority) in January to bring a budget of $33,085,373 (excluding 14 separate warrant articles which total roughly $730,000) forward for the 2011-12 school year. The budget was up over the previous year (voters in April of 2010 approved $32,538,251 for the school budget excluding 13 warrant articles) but school officials attribute that to continued escalating costs in health insurance, special education and an increase in the local contribution to the state retirement system. On Feb. 13, during a four-hour meeting, six members of the budget committee — Bob Drinkhall, Bill Masters, Ray Shakir, Doug Swett, Linda Teagan and John Edgerton — all voted to cut the school budget by 11 percent. The budget committee wrangled over proposals that spanned from a $1 cut to an across-the-board 18 percent cut. After a half-dozen proposals, the committee settled on the 11 percent cut. The six stuck to their decision when they were asked by chairman David Sordi at a special Feb. 27 meeting if any of them would like to make a motion to revisit the Feb. 13 vote, but none of them chose to, thus leaving their action in place for the deliberative meeting. With the proposed 11 percent cut, the school faced a $3.6 million cut to the operating budget if the voters didn’t amend the committee’s recommendation at the deliberative session.
Tensions ran high during deliberative school meeting in March. Here, budget committee chair David Sordi makes a point.
SAU 9 superintendent Carl Nelson believed the proposed cut was more in the neighborhood of $4.1 million. Even if voters elected to restore 10 percent to the school budget at the deliberative, it would have left a cut of $829,030. "(The budget committee) did an 11 percent cut across the board but there are certain things like bonds that can't be cut," Nelson said at the time. "If the deliberative doesn't restore 10 percent (the maximum that a budget at the deliberative can be increased or decreased under the SB 2 form of government), it'll be a cut of about $4.1 million." If the budget committee's proposed 11 percent cut to the school budget see BUDGET YEAR page 12

We all deserve the same human rights To the editor: I’m writing in response to a Bruce Cochrane. I don’t quite understand why it is that you feel that all of us who are heterosexual think the same way as you do. I for one do not, let me tell you a few things and try to clear some air. My name is Marie; I’ll be getting married soon to a wonderful man. We’ll be able to do many things that my friends can’t. You see I have many friends who are “gay” and those who live in states that don’t allow the same rights have a hard time. Marriage isn’t sacred — No, wait, that’s a lie marriage is sacred it’s a bond of two people in spirit. The idea of marriage was founded by the government, not the church and for many years before marriage, people could say they were together and so it was. To me that piece of paper that says we are together means nothing. That paper allows me to be able to go to the hospital to be with my husband if he is sick or vice versa. “Gays” don’t get that right as a couple, I don’t see why a paper threatens you so much. I want my friends who live this way to be allowed those freedoms that as a human they deserve. You
talk about them like they’re another creature; another life form and I can’t stand to hear that. My friends, they are my family and if they can’t have human rights I don’t want those. You live in New Hampshire, the Live Free or Die state. Freedom, the ability to live free, taking away human right to my friends isn’t freedom it’s cruel. The thing I guess that shocks me the most is the fact that you’re so worried about your “sacred” marriage. What about the rest of the issues in the United States. You say God bless it; you say you’re red-blooded; why are you against freedom? Why are you thrown in a corner with a sheet on your head? Our ancestors came here for freedom, fought for it and now we’re a nation of our own. Why do you and I deserve more than the other humans? I don’t think we do. In the end we all bleed red, we all die and we all live. Someday there will be no hatred; there will be equality for all. I thought we all were the children of God. God help the outcasts. My friends and my family who deserve what I have. Marie Estey Intervale

Cheers for Dave Van Note for questioning wars in Iraq, Vietnam To the editor: Cheers for David Van Note, who wrote recently: What the hell were we doing making a war in Iraq, and why were we killing our kids — and others’ — in Vietnam? (David’s language was gentler than mine.) Today, none of us can cite a valid reason for these wars. “Weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq? “The domino effect” in Indochina? These are the lies that were handed
out (again, David writes more kindly), and some of us believed them; others of us demonstrated against them. He writes, “It is vital to our society and to the world to determine the truth; and we must do this soon.” Please tell us, David— How shall we begin? Write on! Sabra Morton Madison

If politicians stop spending we’d all be a lot better off To the editor: Another fraud presented to the American public by our president and some in Congress is the third year in a row proposed payroll deduction recess on the FDIC [read Social Security], Medicare and other stuff to net the taxpayer some extra pocket money. The fraud is that it represents in actuality a direct prepayment of your Medicare and Social Security benefits, which all of our great and wonderful politicians fail to point out. It is laughable that these funds are in the process of going bust! Makes perfect sense to me to use these funds to make everyone feel better over the last two years and now next year. Not! With both the funding for Medicare and Social Security in question what is the logic to cut it off, now, for the third year in a row? There is no logic whatsoever! This is just another continuing example of how illogical and ineffective the federal government has become in the solving of our fiscal problems. Social Security has never been funded effectively to cover the ever expanding benefit group. Politicians love to hand out candy bars but are completely undisciplined about paying
for them. The trustee’s of the Social Security funds have always been politicians who have not reported the long term folly of the ever expanding benefits pool never being indemnified by lump sum payments to cover the expanded obligations of the fund, no matter the social value. Running very successful programs to extend the life expectancy at NIH, CDC and universities across the country without structural changes to the benefit payout plans is the height of “head-in-the-sand” management. As a matter of fact, fund disbursement policies have been made that allow benefits for working folks longer, thanks to Senator Claude Pepper from Florida [he was old]. If politicians would stop spending we would all be a lot better off and our real taxes could be reduced to the same effect as taking from Social Security and Medicare now so there will be no funds in the future. This truly fits the old expression: “Borrow from Peter to pay Paul”; no, it is really Peter, which makes even less sense. Stupidity is not a commodity in short supply in Washington. Henry F. Villaume Intervale
Long wait for no answer to question of Shea Porter To the editor: Since the end of the 2008 Democratic presidential primary, I have been trying without success to reach Carol Shea Porter to ask her a question. This is a simple enough task I thought, so I called her office in Washington D.C. and was told that my question needed to be answered by her election committee office. I called there and they said they would pass on the question. My mistake was assuming the question would be passed to Representative Shea Porter. Either the representative never received the question or the pizza delivery person they may have asked didn’t know the answer because I am still sitting by my phone and have not heard back from them. As spring arrived I decided to move the phone outdoors to enjoy some fresh air while waiting for the phone call that would answer my question. This also afforded me the opportunity to watch for the mail man as maybe the rep was going to answer by letter. Summer was a hot one but I never lost hope as she was an elected official who certainly would answer such a simple question. As the first snowflakes arrived I needed to move back inside as my hope of receiving a call from my rep declined. I decided no longer to refer to her as representative but just rep because the meaning of representative according to Webster is “serving to represent “ and she wasn’t fitting this mold at all. I think now I will just refer to her as Carol! Just as I had lost all hope I finally received an email from her yesterday! I knew I was too quick to judge her as she is a busy lady and I excitedly opened the email and behold, she wanted me to give money to her cam-
paign so she can ignore me another few years. Carol and I are not going to be on speaking terms after this. Oh, the question I wanted an answer to: Why did she as a superdelegate, which are unpledged, cast her presidential vote for Obama when the Democratic voters of New Hampshire clearly voted for Hillary Clinton 39.1 percent to Obama’s 36.5 percent. When I go to the polls I expect the majority to be listened to and not ignored. In a presidential election we vote for a slate of electors who pledge to vote for a particular presidential ticket. The superdelegates are not bound by popular vote as other electors are, but if the majority votes for candidate “A” and the superdelegate casts their vote for candidate “B,” then they are surely not listening to what the voters want. By the way, I have been a lifelong Democrat and am not some angry Republican just lashing out at Carol. From the beginning I knew the answer but I wanted to see how truthful carol ( I can’t even give her a capital “C” anymore) would be. The powerful Kennedy clan put the pressure on carol and being the puppet she is, she cast her vote for Obama. Not what the majority of New Hampshire Democrats wanted according to the vote. An interesting side note is that Representative Frank Guinta who beat caro has called ME twice with an opportunity to join in on a question and answer phone bank. It didn’t matter to Representative Guinta that I’m a lifelong registered Democrat but I was in his district and that is what mattered. If you see caro tell her I’m still waiting for a phone call and as for a campaign donation ... well the check is in the mail! Vote early ,Vote often ! Tom Lazdowski Bartlett

the talented junior onward scored 26 goals to go with 24 assists for 50 points to lead Kennett in scoring. Murphy scored three goals last February in a 9-1 home victory over Manchester West to reach the 100-point plateau. "Kevin had another excellent season," Michael Lane, Eagles' head coach, said. "I think he took his game to another level this winter. He came off a real good sophomore year and only got better. He's quiet but leads by example. I think he really seemed to take off when we moved him over to the wing." Murphy, who ended the season with 115 career points, helped the Eagles get back to the state championship game for the third year in a row. After opening the season 0-2, the Kennett proudly demonstrated its championship mettle by going 13-1-1 in its next 15 games — good enough to secure the No. 3 seed for the Division III playoffs. The boys from Conway won two playoff games to reach the finals, but were topped in their bid for a three-peat by undefeated Somersworth, who skated to an 8-3 win at the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester. *** The Kennett High boys' and girls' alpine teams were summoned before the Conway School Board in March, where they received a rousing round of applause in recognition of a pair of state championships garnered on the slopes the prior month. "Each year over the past few decades Kennett High School has traditionally been one of the top ski teams in the state," principal Neal Moylan said proudly. "It's become almost second thought that these young men and women would become state champs. The boys' and girls' alpine team were both up to the challenge this year and continue to hold the standard high for future Eagles to come." The Kennett High boys' alpine team not only defended its state championship on Feb. 8, the Eagles capped off an undefeated season by skiing away from the field at Waterville Valley in one of the most dominating team performances in recent memory. Kennett also crowned a pair of individual state champions with Jake Van Deursen repeating at champion in the giant slalom and Matt Halupowski winning the slalom. Kennett High dominated the 14-school field, scoring 777 points from GS and slalom combined. Plymouth followed with 687 points, and then it was Bedford, 645; Hollis-Brookline, 645; Lebanon, 636; Souhegan, 613; ConVal, 607; Kingswood, 311; John Stark, 283; Pembroke, 219; Milford, 197; Windham, 193; and Laconia, 143. The Kennett High girls also skied as a team in every fashion at Cranmore, much to the delight of coach Laurel Zengilowski, who had just two days earlier watched the Kennett boys hoist the alpine crown. Overall standings were Kennett, first, 772; Plymouth, 712; Hanover, 682.5; Bishop Guertin, 662; Hollis-Brookline, 633; Bedford, 625.5; Souhegan, 609; Lebanon, 588; Kingswood, 563.5; Laconia, 508.5; ConVal, 493; John Stark, 460; Windham, 311; Pembroke Academy, 214; and Milford, 195. *** Calling it the toughest 12 points she's ever scored, Melissa Frase became the newest member of the 1,000-point club

at Kennett High School. The talented senior came into the March quarterfinal contest at The Nest against visiting Oyster River needing just a dozen points to reach four digits. She didn't have one of her better shooting nights and every shot she took was followed by oohs and aahs from the record crowd that turned out to will her to the milestone. Frase let the points come to her, not forcing the action against the Bobcats. In fact, she handed out six assists in the first half while pulling down four defensive rebounds, all factors in helping the Eagles pull away from Oyster River on the scoreboard. A giant poster hung at one end of the court highlighting the Frase Countdown to 1,000. With each point, a new number was revealed, letting folks know the next target. With 5:59 to play, Frase got the ball at mid-court, took four dribbles, stopped and popped from beyond the three-point line. SWISH! The perfect shot drew nothing but the bottom of the net with 5:57 to play. Fans unfolded 1,000 point banners and everyone — Oyster River fans included — gave her a thunderous ovation. Mission accomplished. "I thought it would come on a free throw," Frase said, smiling. "The three was nice. It felt good when I shot it." Frase is the first Eagle to score her 1,000th point on a three-pointer. She left the game seconds after the shot to another ovation. *** The Fryeburg Academy boys' crosscountry ski team went into this year with two specific goals for the end of the season: Place three racers in the top five at the state championship meet and win the state championship meet. Thursday the Raiders accomplished both of those goals. The last time the boys won just the Nordic was 1989 — they also won the combined that year, too. Fryeburg first needed to simply get to the Class A Meet which was held in Maine’s famously vast Aroostook County. It took the team seven hours to reach Presque Isle where it stayed and raced over the three-day meet. Ahead by 35 points going into the classic, junior Silas Eastman won the race see next page

while his brother Seth, a senior, was third; junior Paul Kurnick took fourth; and Adam Armington had a race to remember, placing 15th to secure the victory. "I’m proud of all these boys," head coach John Weston said. "These were very tough courses and they proved they were the best skiers. They worked hard all season and deserved the reward." That reward would come in style as later that night, as the team finally made it back to their side of the state; the team bus was escorted through the streets of Fryeburg by the town police and fire department. The escort ended at the main building of the academy where the boys rang the centuries-old school bell, a school tradition after an important team victory. The legacy of Seth and Silas Eastman continued to grow in Maine high school Nordic skiing in April. The Fryeburg Academy duo competed against 70 of the best skiers in Maine for 24 spots on the Eastern High School Championship (EHSC) team. The format was pursuit style with a 5K classic race in the morning followed by a 5K skate race in the afternoon. Skiers started the afternoon race according to how they finished the morning race. Sophomore Silas Eastman sent a resounding statement beating the field by 37 seconds in the morning classic race. Brother Seth had a very solid race and finished where he needed to in 12th, less than 10 seconds out of the top 10. After a three-hour rest, the racers lined up for the skate race. Seth was in a prime spot to have a great race. He was stronger in skate and he had a lot of guys just in front of him for motivation. He didn’t disappoint. "Seth flew over the course with the fastest time of the day winning the race and positioning him as Maine’s top skate racer to compliment his brother as Maine’s top classic racer," Weston said. "What a duo. Silas took the overall combined position in the pursuit while Seth was a combined fourth. *** You couldn't have scripted this one. Heading into late May, the Kennett High baseball team needed to win its final three games to guarantee itself a playoff berth and also for coach Bob Burns to reach the 500-career-victory milestone. The Eagles did exactly that. First they beat Laconia, a team ranked
higher than them in the standings, twice in five days. And, then, there was the regular season finale against St. Thomas. The Saints came to Coach Bob Burns Field in Redstone ranked in the top five in Division II and played a great game. Kennett was just a bit better on this day. The Eagles scored two runs in the bottom of the 10th inning to win 8-7. They immediately celebrated with their coach, who remained in the third base coach's box after having just waved in the two runs. "I was there a little while," Burns said smiling. "I just said a little prayer of thank you. I was happy and a bit emotional. Each kid only has four years to savor Kennett baseball; I've been blessed to have had 40 plus years." Burns is already the current all-time leader in New Hampshire school boy baseball victories in a storied career at Kennett that spans 41 years. Burns' teams have gone 500-305 over that period. "This was a great game," Burns said. "It was probably one of the most pleasing wins of them all. Both teams hit well, fielded well and there was a ton of excitement. After coaching 800 games you think you would have experienced everything, but this is why I still do this. There was a lot happening.” "It was very special," said Linda, his wife, who did a lot of pacing, particularly in the final three extra innings. "It's always nice to win but this was very special. It was great to see good baseball being played. Bob puts so much into this game, I'm so happy for him. It was so nice to have Staci and her husband and their children there along with Brendan and his significant other. I don't know how many times on the ride home (Bob) said, 'We did, we did it.' He was pretty emotional, that's what makes him." *** In July, word came that Mount Washington Valley Ski Team and Kennett High alum Ace Tarberry had been nominated to the U.S. Ski Team. Tarberry who was an invitee with the Men’s C team last season will now become an official member of the C team. Fellow alum and 2010 Olympian Leanne Smith was also promoted to the Women’s A Team joining Lindsay Vonn and Julia Mancuso. *** It was a September to remember for local baseball fans.

dream become a reality when he made his Major League debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 24-year-old lefthanded pitcher said the experience was 100 times better than he ever imagined it would be, and he described the Majors as, quite simply, "The Men's League." It was an incredible summer for Locke, who went from Class AA to Class AAA and onto the Major Leagues in the span of a few weeks. He lost almost 50 pounds in the process, dropping from 221 in February to 175 at the end of the season. "It was just another day in AA in August and here comes my 36 or 37th start and I'm still in AA," he said during a visit to The Conway Daily Sun in October. "I was like, 'I've got to pitch better or do something,' and then when it did happen it happened really fast. I was in AAA for less than four weeks, and then in September I find myself in Pittsburgh for the last month of the season. "Things clicked at AAA," Locke continued. "Maybe it was just a different setting, sometimes a different place makes a difference. When I got to AA the first time it was, 'Oh my gosh, I'm two steps away, one if we skip (AAA). I'm that close.' You start to taste it a little bit more. When I actually got to Pittsburgh I didn't know what to expect, I had no clue. There's no manual." Locke got the news of his call-up following what he thought was his last start for the AAA Indianapolis Indians. He got called into the manager's office with a few other players. "Four of us got called in and told, 'You sit down, you sit down, you go over there,'" he said. "They told us, 'You're going up, you're going up for the first time and you're going back up again.' It was cool, almost surreal. There were a lot of guys who were rehabbing on that team like Ryan Ludwick was there, a Major League guy, and Chase d'Arnaud and Alex Presley. When they got got called back they knew they were going. I didn't have a clue. We talked about hoping it would happen. I knew that

I'd thrown a lot of innings. I was really happy obviously with the decision. "They told me before how this was going to happen," Locke said. "You're going to try to explain it to people how great it is but you can't. It's everything I ever imagined but times a hundred. I can't really compare it to any other moment I've ever had. Not one thing stood out, not one at-bat, not one game or anything like that. The time that I was up there was so special and no one can ever take it away. If I never went back I'll remember it pretty clearly." Locke's first start came in Pittsburgh against the Florida Marlins in front of a sellout crowd. "I had a lot of guys from my legion team in Plymouth come," Locke said. "It was really good to see those guys come out. They would be there for my first one and they all showed up. I was happy that Todd (Frechette, a friend and former teammate at Kennett) was able to be there. He's caught me in the off-season and thrown with me, helping me get to where I've gotten. Obviously, the family being there was huge." Locke, who is nicknamed the Redstone Rocket, said he received plenty of advice from his new teammates, but nothing really prepares you for that first time you step out on the mound in PNC Park. "I got to sit down with a few of the guys before the game and they want to explain to you what a debut is all about. I thought it was, 'Na, it's just the first game,' but it's way more than just the first game,” Locke said. “Start two was Dodgers Stadium, no nerves, nothing. Game one could have been against the little league team in town but as long as it was going to be at PNC Park it was going to be nerve-wracking. The first time you walk out onto the field it was unreal. I'm used to 5,000 fans max for like a fireworks night, not 40,000. "You're doing something you worked your entire life to do and it's happening right now," Locke continued. "Like for the first time ever, right now. You

try to harness those emotions and kind of understand what's going on. A couple of the guys said, and I didn't think of it, but it would have helped, they said for the first inning only don't look anywhere else except the catcher's mitt. Don't even look around, don't even take a deep breath, just look at the catcher's mitt the whole time and everything will be fine. A lot of guys do that the first time out and it's fine. I hadn't even thrown the first pitch yet and I was like, 'Wow, this is great' looking all over the place.” Locke said the game plan for next season is a simple one. He'll head to Florida in early February, report to Major League camp with the Pirates in Bradenton and then… "Go win a spot (on the Pirates' roster), go win a spot, that's got to be the goal," he said. "I feel as though it doesn't matter if I went up to Pittsburgh this past fall and I just crushed it or if I went there and struggled or did some things well and some things not so well. They wanted to see me and wanted to get lots of things out of the way. This could all be just talk, but I feel like they got me ready for next season, instead of having to be nervous all over again. You're still going to be nervous, but you've gotten the major jitters out of the way because you've been there before.” *** There's a new sport on the landscape in Mount Washington Valley. Curling arrived in style. Eight teams participated in the fall season which began in October and wrapped up in mid December. The sport rocked in its inaugural season. "It's great," Darrell Umlah, general manager of Ham Ice Area, said. "We put out feelers about trying to get the sport started here last spring and it's really taken off. I couldn't be more pleased with the response. I don't think there's a day that goes by where I don't field a call or an e-mail with interest in it." Umlah explained how curling came to be at the Ham Arena. The arena's board of directors had been exploring ideas to increase the use of ice at the rink, and the idea of curling was floated. An initial meeting was held in April to see if there was any interest in the community. "We had 52 people for a preliminary meeting, which was absolutely outstanding," he said. "I thought there might be an interest for the sport in this community, but this definitely confirmed it beyond my expectations. We had 52 people plus a lot of people of the 52 who have siblings and children who are interested, too. One of the coolest things was all of the people who came I kind of know but they're not regular customers of the Ham Arena." A board of directors was created within two weeks and the Mount Washington Valley Curling Club was born by May 1. The board of directors and members raised $10,000 with the help of a matching grant from the Gibson Woodbury Foundation all within three months, and acquired three sets of curling stones, a full complement of brooms and sliders, and hacks for the curling sheets — in short, everything needed to curl. The club even permanently painted three curling sheets on the ice at the arena. Over 100 people turned out in September for the initial Curl-A-Palooza in which members of the Nashua and Merrimack curling clubs put on a demonstration of the sport with the inaugural match played on the West Main Street ice sheet. From there a few learn-to-curl nights were held and almost 40 people signed up for the initial league. While some formed their own teams, others were simply created by pulling names out of a hat.

BUDGET YEAR from page 5
had stood, the district would have been forced to cut approximately 60 positions; eliminate all sports, music and dance teams at the high school and middle school; and terminate school buses for the high school. At the deliberative session March 8, voters by state law can adjust the budget up to 10 percent. Doing that would bring the budget to one percent of the school board’s request. “This is the first time we’ve used the 10 percent assumption,” said committee member John Edgerton, who has served on the committee off and on since 1976. “It appears we are using tactics that are saying we can accept a 1 percent reduction,” said Karen Umberger, another committee member. Otherwise “that kind of cut is just way too much.” Umberger proposed keeping the budget flat, and Sordi proposed a $1 cut, taken out of the administration line item, but those proposals fell flat. Sordi said he wanted to send a message to administrators that they had to be more efficient. “If we don’t send a message the increase will be even more,” he said. “If they don’t get the message then next year will be even more confrontational.” School officials and their attorney questioned the legality of the budgeteers' action and asked for a special meeting Feb. 27 . The committee consented to a meeting, but ultimately did not budge from the figure. Town attorney Peter Malia sided with the budget committee. Prior to the Feb. 27 meeting, the Conway School Board sent a five-page letter to the budget committee. "The Conway School Board has met with counsel to discuss the recent vote by the Conway Budget Committee to reduce the proposed school budget by 11 percent. Counsel reviewed with the Board the New Hampshire Supreme Court case of Baker v. Hudson School District, 111 N.H. 54(971), in which a budget committee had taken similar action and then sought to prohibit the Hudson School Board from restoring more than 10 percent of the budget committee's figure. "The Supreme Court determined that the arbitrary cut of a percentage of the budget by the budget committee represented a failure of the committee to do its job to review the budget in a responsible manner and was therefore illegal and void. "For similar reasons, the Conway School Board believes that the Conway Budget Committee has failed in its duty to review the budget as presented by the school board in a rational and responsible manner so that the proposed cuts do not force the wholesale removal of programs, the closing of facilities and other precipitous actions that may jeopardize the tuition contracts with surrounding districts, and education in general." School attorney Teague presented that argument to the budget committee Feb. 27. Attorney Malia, however, thought budgeteers acted within their rights. Sordi explained to those on hand Feb. 27 the role of the budget committee, which he said is to look at all of the different budgets presented to
the town from the school district, the town and precincts. He explained the budget committee sent a letter in late fall to the town, the school and precincts urging each to look at trimming their budgets given the current state of the economy. In its Nov. 3 letter to the school, budgeteers wrote: "With these issues in mind, the budget committee, acting in its sole role as 'the voice of the people,' ask you to, at the very least, maintain a flat budget, including all variable costs such as salaries, benefits and special articles, for the coming budget year. We also believe that you should strongly consider reducing the overall budget 5 percent for the coming year. We look forward to working with you during the upcoming budget season. We hope you accept this letter in the spirit that it's been sent, to reduce the financial burden on our neighbors." "We did not hear one response," Sordi said Feb. 27. "We have tried to reach out and have gotten no response." Over 1,000 people, many from outlying towns, packed into the gymnasium — the meeting was moved from Loynd Auditorium due to the masses — at Kennett High on March 9. The evening was all about the budget. Within minutes of starting, school board chairman Janine McLauchlan made a motion to increase the budget by 11 percent, back to the figure the school board sought before the budget committee sliced it by 11 percent. The motion drew the first round of applause of the evening. Then it became a legal matter. Malia and Teague differed on the legality of the budget committee's proposed 11 percent cut. "We clearly have a disagreement here in terms of the budget committee's action," Teague said. "The budget committee didn't do its job. I believe (the school district's) case is a strong one if the day comes when we have to make a case." Resident Betty Loynd, who ran for and later won a seat on the budget committee, said the budget committee didn't care about the deepness of the cut it recommended. "I was at the meeting where the budget committee in one fell swoop cut 13 percent, 18 percent and 11 percent, they didn't care," she said. Then-selectman Bob Drinkhall, his board's representative to the budget committee, spoke in favor of the 11 percent cut. "We spent a lot of timing looking at the budget and what the school board was recommending," he explained. "I looked at the last 15 years of the school budget. It has increased by 118 percent while enrollment has dropped 8 percent and staffing in the district has increased by 84 percent. The district has gone from 186 employees to 343. An 11 percent reduction is equal to the 2007 budget. This in my opinion is not catastrophic." The meeting began to unravel 80 minutes in when Dr. Rich Laracy posed a question to budget committee member Shakir over recent comments about special education students. Shakir said Laracy was not accurate in his comments. Shakir said there are certain students who could be "on the public dole for life." see next page
THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Thursday, December 29, 2011— Page 13
from preceding page
That led to a loud chorus of boos and a follow-up from Laracy. "Mr. Shakir, you are making me physically sick right now," he said and added, "Ignorance is the worst disability." Shakir and fellow budgeteer Doug Swett rose from the table and left the room with one audience member yelling "Hitler" during his departure. Voters in April rejected the school board's then proposed $33 million budget, opting instead for a default budget that was $190,000 more ($33,275,846). The school budget failed, 1,082 to 723. There was a movement prior to the April vote to get citizens to support the default budget in hopes that it would avoid a legal battle. Voters went that route, but the N.H. Attorney General and N.H. Department of Revenue Administration determined May 11 that the budget approved by voters was subject to the so-called 10 percent rule, which limits to 10 percent the amount voters can add or deduct from the budget. The letter from the DRA stated: "We are disallowing an appropriation amount of $449,950 from warrant articles 14-9 and an additional $1,019,746 from warrant article 5." In the letter, DRA offered a special meeting as possible solution. "In accordance with RSA 40:13, X and XVI the school district may hold one special meeting to take up the issue of a revised operating budget only." The school board elected to go the special meeting direction rather than head for a possible drawnout legal battle and came up with a new budget. The board's budget committee (which includes Jane Gray of Eaton, the SAU 9 chairman) voted to move forward with the following cuts May 26 at a special meeting: • $50,000 in special education tuition as a student moved out of district. • $28,360 in special education supplies. • $6,000 for Tin Mountain in the elementary schools. • $38,708 for a high school hall monitor. • $5,000 for School to Career. • $46,372 for a MWV Career and Technical Center guidance counselor. • $4,030 in freshmen teacher stipends. • $8,000 in the temporary staffing stipend pool. • $6,000 in maintenance supplies at the high school. • $33,300 in a half-time art teacher at the high school, leaving one full-time art teacher. • $4,000 for the Conway Elementary School strategic plan. • $56,690 in elementary custodial services. The April 12 vote also led to an election when there was a record field of candidates on the ballot. All 17 seats on the budget committee were occupied for the first time in years as a record eight new members were
welcomed aboard. The elections saw 16 people throw their hat into the ring for budget committee seats. In the past, few had sought the office with many accepting it after garnering only a handful of write-in votes. The Conway Municipal Budget Committee voted unanimously to support the Conway School Board's recommended budget June 15, and it took only one vote to reach a 16-0 decision. "Wow," Sordi said that night as all the members raised their hands in support of the figure. "This is great, thank you." Nelson, who also attended the June 15 meeting, was pleased to see the budget committee members reach a unanimous decision — and on the first vote, to boot. "I was very pleasantly surprised," Nelson said. "I think the budget committee did some real looking at what the school board came up with. I was very pleased we were able to get to a common point where we can move forward together." Over 1,000 people attended the March deliberative meeting. In a second deliberative meeting in mid-July, it took longer to make sure the microphones were working than for the 130 citizens who turned out to Loynd Auditorium to move the proposed 2011-12 school budget forward to a vote. The $32,798,634 budget recommended by the municipal budget committee and Conway School Board drew not a single question from the audience as
the deliberative portion of school meeting wrapped up in just six minutes. The lone question on Aug. 16 ballot read: "Shall the Conway School District at this special meeting vote to raise and appropriate, as a revised operating budget, not including appropriations by special warrant articles and other appropriations voted separately at the annual meeting, the amounts set forth on the budget posted with the warrant or as amended by vote of the first session of this special meeting, for the purpose set forth therein, totaling $32,798,634. (Recommended by the Municipal Budget Committee 16-0-0.) Should this article be defeated, the operating budget shall be $33,115,119, which is the same as last year, with certain adjustments required by previous action of the Conway School District or by law. ($32,798,634 is recommended by the School Board 5-1-0)." Ultimately, just six percent of the registered voters in town went to the polls for the special vote on the budget. In the lowest voter turnout of the SB2 era, voters approved the $32,798,634 budget, 290 to 70. "I was glad to see the support," Nelson said the day after. "This budget was a collaborative effort between the school board and the budget committee. I really think it's going to set the tone for a more successful upcoming budget season." So far, there have been few if any bumps in the 201213 school budget process.

Ice conditions unsafe Zebs gives health center grant for youth education CONCORD, N.H. – The N.H. Fish and Game Department and local officials are getting reports of unsafe ice around the state. “Recent warm weather, rain and wind have made ice conditions unsafe in most parts of the state, although some small lakes and ponds are frozen over,” said Col. Martin Garabedian, Chief of N.H. Fish and Game’s Law Enforcement Division. “Be patient and wait for solid ice. Before you go out on the ice, check the thickness for yourself.” As the temperatures continue to fall in coming weeks, and the ice begins to thicken, assess ice safety before you go out by using an ice chisel or auger to determine its thickness and condition. Continue to do this as you get further out on to the ice, because the thickness of the ice will not be uniform all over the waterbody. Though all ice is potentially dangerous, the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research & Engineering Laboratory in Hanover, offers a "rule of thumb" on ice thickness: There should be a minimum of six inches of hard ice before individual foot travel, and eight to 10 inches of hard ice for snow machine or ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) travel. Keep in mind that it is possible for ice to be thick, but not strong, because of varying weather conditions. Weak ice is formed when warming trends break down ice, then the slushy surface re-freezes. Be especially careful of areas with current, such as inlets, outlets and spring holes, where the ice can be dangerously thin. see ICE page 18
CONWAY — Zeb’s General Store Charitable Fund has given a grant of $3,000 to the White Mountain Community Health Center. The grant will assist with education of youth at Kennett High School surrounding teen health issues. Due to the economy, state funding to the health center has been decreased, making it necessary to eliminate some of the educational programs that have traditionally been provided to teens, as well as other important health care services. “This grant will go a long way toward restoring our outreach education program, which is so very important in helping kids build developmental assets and connecting youth and families to community resources,” said Trisha Jacobson, community outreach educator. Zeb’s donates many gift baskets to various fund-raisers each year, and in 2007 the business established a charitable fund as another way to support community nonprofits serving area children. Since its inception, Zeb’s Charitable Fund has awarded $22,200 in grants to youth causes while the

store has matched those contributions plus contributed another $50,000 over the past five years to grow the principal. The fund balance is now in excess of $70,000. Zeb’s General Store opened in 1991 and provides a large collec-
tion of New England-made specialty foods, candies, toys, books, apparel and many gift items in a nostalgic old time mercantile setting. For more information on Zeb’s Charitable Fund visit www. zebs.com.
Hiller hosts business luncheon of appreciation for longterm employees
THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Thursday, December 29, 2011— Page 17
BY KRYSTAL KAHN When I hear the word “braces”, memories of crowded waiting rooms, sore teeth, and years of balancing school classes with appointments comes to mind. In the end, of course, it was all worth it the day my braces were removed and I was able to show off my perfect smile to the world with a sense of pride and accomplishment. It was a feeling I brought with me when I joined the team at Hiller Orthodontics. Dr. Dennis C. Hiller began his orthodontic practice in Conway Village over 28 years ago and has grown to incorporate six additional offices throughout New Hampshire including Berlin, Laconia, Littleton, Plymouth, Wolfeboro, and on in St. Johnsbury, Vt. When asked recently by a fellow colleague how he has been able to manage all 7 locations, his response was simply “I couldn’t do it without my staff.” With a staff of 20, there are three who particularly stand out: Lisa Montminy, Jeanne

ing to all of his patients. When the Academy of Orthodontic Assisting (AOA) was founded in 1998, Pam, Lisa, and Jeanne were among the first Orthodontic Assistants in the nation who were contacted by the scademy to become certified teachers, an endeavor they continue to enjoy even today. To celebrate their rare longevity with the practice, Dr. Hiller orchestrated a business luncheon of appreciation at the White Mountain Cider Company this fall where he presented Lisa, Pam, and Jeanne with Service Recognition Awards. During one of the many toasts that were made during the luncheon, Dr. Hiller mentioned he had solicited ideas from dozens of his colleagues in the fields of Orthodontics and Dentistry for ways to show his gratitude and appreciation of his longterm assistants. He was shocked to find not a single person he spoke to has ever had a member of his/her staff stay with their practice for so long. “Dr. Hiller and I have always shared the same philosophy that
with good patient care, you always see quality results” and “I love being a part of making someone smile” is what Pamela Couture said when I asked her why she has stayed with Hiller Orthodontics all these years. Jeanne and Lisa agreed that their loyalties are in part due to Dr. Hiller’s commitment to the community through his and the Hiller Team’s contributions to local athletics, students, and ongoing charitable events including numerous marathons, blood drives, and fundraisers. Most recently, Dr. Hiller won NH Magazine’s distinguished “Top Dentist of 2011” award. With over 28 years in the field of Orthodontics and serving nearly 10,000 patients, Dr. Hiller and his devoted staff look forward to continuing to provide the superior level of care and compassion that multiple generations of his patients have come to know.

Tips for staying safe on the ice include: • Stay off ice along the shoreline if it is cracked or squishy. Don’t go on the ice during thaws. • Watch out for thin, clear or honeycombed ice. Dark snow and ice may indicate weak spots. • Small bodies of water tend to freeze thicker. Rivers and lakes are more prone to wind, currents and wave action that weaken ice. • Don’t gather in large groups or drive large vehicles onto the ice. • If you do break through the ice, don’t panic. Move or swim back to where you fell in, where you know the ice was solid. Lay both arms on the unbroken ice and kick hard. This will help lift your body onto the ice. A set of ice picks can aid you in a self-rescue (wear them around your neck or put them in an easily accessible pocket). Once out of the water, roll away from the hole until you reach solid ice. Ice safety is just as important for snowmobilers. Don't assume a trail is safe just because it exists; ask about trail conditions at local snowmobile clubs or sporting goods shops in advance.

Universalist Chapel looking for nativity scene Ernest Brown exhibit at library in January
Last summer a big yard sale was held on the lawn of the Universalist Chapel in North Fryeburg to benefit the chapel fund. Many people donated items to help raise funds. With all the items that were donated, several pieces of their church nativity scene were mistakenly put into the yard sale. The folks at the church are heart sick about this. If you purchased these few pieces call or e-mail them and they will gladly purchase the items and even offer a reward. The nativity scene was given by a family member as a gift to the chapel. The pieces are cream colored porcelain and include camels and the baby Jesus. Call Diane Jones at (207) 697-3484 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org .

The visual arts add a unique dimension to our lives, exposing us to different ways of seeing the world. The Conway Public Library is pleased to offer an art exhibit for the month of January 2012 that is exceptional. Ernest Oliver Brown makes canvas and paint live and breathe. Ernie has been a well known part of the Mount Washington Valley art community. His murals embellished the walls at the old Scottish Lion Inn and Restaurant and Heritage House at StoryLand. For several years, the State of New Hampshire Department of Tourism used his illustrated version of the state map. He also has sold many pieces locally from his studio and on commission. Although Ernie has been living outside the Valley for over a decade, he is back once again in the area. If you remember Ernie, you will enjoy seeing his work again. And if you’ve never seen his work, you are in for a treat. Stop by the Conway Public Library and enjoy his exhibit throughout the month of January in the Ham Community Room.
Start the new year write Writing is a lonely craft but local wordsmiths don’t have to be isolated any more. The Conway Public Library now offers a Writers Group on the first Tuesday of each month at 4:30 p.m. Why join a writers group? Because you gain the following: a monthly deadline (meetings); feedback, when requested; optional prompts to stretch your skills; tips and exercises from published authors living in the area; and shared strategies for those proverbial bumps in the road that all writers encounter. Poetry or memoir, nonfiction or science fiction, all genres are welcome. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee or tea, meet other worshippers of the written word, and leave that isolated feeling in the dust. The next meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 3 at 4:30 p.m. around the kitchen table at the Conway Public Library. see LIBRARY page 20

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll enjoy the contents of your own mind. Your imaginings will amuse you to no end. You might even prefer your own company today, and who could blame you? You’re good company indeed. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Taking in manmade beauty will be one of the most invigorating things you could do today. Art stimulates your mind and life in ways you won’t be able to explain. It’s one of the wonderful excitements of living. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be included in the activities that suit you best. If you’re not included in something, be glad; it’s not for you. Your fortunes will be augmented exactly where you are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You appreciate your self-sufficient friends. Similarly, your friends appreciate your self-sufficiency. This is a good time to be independent financially and emotionally. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What’s happening around you might not be all that engaging, and you’ll have to make a greater effort to connect. How will you be able to talk about your day later if you didn’t really experience it in the first place? TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 29). You’ll pursue your passion long after the others have given up. You’ll spend time with people who possess a similar mental and physical toughness. In February, you’ll be rewarded for hanging in there. Life may feel out of balance through the spring, but you won’t mind because you’re so involved. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 22, 15, 9 and 30.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you’re feeling warm, everyone around you seems to cozy up to your inner fire. That’s how it will be most of the day and into the night, so expect company. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In your mind, there will be no emotional difference between anticipating what you’ll do, actually doing it and remembering that you did it. So today you’ll get the same amount of joy from the past, present and future. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Friends surprise you with the kind of news that leaves you momentarily speechless while your brain searches for the right thing to say. It’s probably better not to say much. Being present and willing to listen will be enough. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You might feel a little touchy today, so it’s best to avoid sadness triggers like torch songs, depressing movies or reading material that could be classified as a “total downer.” Go for the laughs wherever you can find them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As usual, you’ll find creative solutions to life’s little challenges. The difference today is that naive eyes are watching you and learning from your every move. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll partner with someone who can help you break into a new realm of business. Things may get off to a slow start, which will allow you to gracefully ease into the groove. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As you search for solutions to the day’s strange conundrums, a loving partner provides just the grounding agent necessary for rousing bouts of belly laughter. Humor gets you through.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Thursday, December 29, 2011— Page 23
Today is Thursday, Dec. 29, the 363rd day of 2011. There are two days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 29, 1851, the first Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) in the United States was founded in Boston. On this date: In 1170, Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, was slain in Canterbury Cathedral by knights loyal to King Henry II. In 1808, the 17th president of the United States, Andrew Johnson, was born in Raleigh, N.C. In 1845, Texas was admitted as the 28th state. In 1890, the Wounded Knee massacre took place in South Dakota as an estimated 300 Sioux Indians were killed by U.S. troops sent to disarm them. In 1911, Sun Yat-sen was elected provisional president of the Republic of China, which officially came into existence three days later on Jan. 1, 1912. In 1916, Grigory Rasputin, the so-called “Mad Monk” who’d wielded great influence with Czar Nicholas II, was killed by a group of Russian noblemen in St. Petersburg. In 1934, Japan formally renounced the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922. In 1940, during World War II, Germany dropped incendiary bombs on London, setting off what came to be known as “The Second Great Fire of London.” In 1975, a bomb exploded in the main terminal of New York’s LaGuardia Airport, killing 11 people. In 1986, former British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan died at his home south of London at age 92. One year ago: The Obama administration expelled Venezuela’s ambassador to the United States, a day after Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said he would not allow diplomat Larry Palmer to become the U.S. ambassador to his country. Suicide bombers succeeded in killing Iraqi police commander Lt. Col. Shamil al-Jabouri, who was renowned in the tense northern city of Mosul for his relentless pursuit of al-Qaida. Today’s Birthdays: Actress Inga Swenson is 79. Actress Mary Tyler Moore is 75. Actor Jon Voight is 73. Rock musician Ray Thomas is 70. Singer Marianne Faithfull is 65. Actor Ted Danson is 64. Actor Jon Polito is 61. Singer-actress Yvonne Elliman is 60. Actress Patricia Clarkson is 52. Comedian Paula Poundstone is 52. Actor Michael Cudlitz is 47. Actor-comedian Mystro Clark is 45. Actor Jason Gould is 45. Movie director Andy Wachowski is 44. Actress Jennifer Ehle is 42. Actor Patrick Fischler is 42. Rock singer-musician Glen Phillips is 41. Actor Kevin Weisman is 41. Actor Jude Law is 39. Actor Mekhi Phifer is 37. Actor Shawn Hatosy is 36. Actress Katherine Moennig is 34. Actor Diego Luna is 32.

SERIAL JOB-CHANGER HAS NO BUSINESS IN THE MILITARY
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 19-year-old woman, hardworking and married to my best friend. Life is amazing! So what’s my problem? I burn out of jobs quickly. I’ll start a job and absolutely love it, but within six months the things that I once loved about the job start to drive me crazy. Within a year, I hate my job and put in my two-week notice. It’s not that I have problems finding jobs -- I’m well-groomed, speak well and I’m enthusiastic. I have recently considered enlisting in the Air Force. (My husband is on active duty.) I am absolutely thrilled about it, but I’m afraid I’ll eventually start hating my job and it’s something I’ll be stuck with. How do I overcome this? -- WANTS TO ENLIST DEAR WANTS TO ENLIST: Please stop and re-read your letter. Are you aware that you’re talking about work the way a schoolgirl talks about romance -- blind, grand passion until reality sets in, then on to the next one? A job isn’t like that. While it can be rewarding on many levels, when the novelty fades it is still WORK. There are good days and ones that are less so, co-workers who are a pleasure and some who are a challenge. Sometimes it’s stimulating and sometimes it’s an effort. Years ago there was a letter in this column that read: “Dear Abby: I joined the Navy to see the world. I’ve seen it. Now how do I get OUT?” I don’t want a letter like that from you. Military life is rewarding, but it can also be demanding, frustrating and dangerous. It requires making a commitment and sticking with it even after the going gets tough. With your short attention span and low tolerance for frustration, I don’t recommend you take ANY job that requires a signed contract
guaranteeing you won’t leave. DEAR ABBY: My friend and I have a massage therapist, “Shelby,” whom we hire on a regular basis because she does an excellent job. However, it’s hard to get a completely relaxing massage because she likes to talk the whole time. What’s the nicest and most polite way to inform Shelby that we prefer peace and quiet so we can enjoy the massage? -- RUBBED THE WRONG WAY IN COLORADO DEAR RUBBED THE WRONG WAY: Shelby is not your buddy; she’s a professional who has been hired to perform a service. When you make your next appointment and she starts talking, say, “Shelby, when you talk during the massage, it makes it difficult for me to relax. Right now, I need to completely relax, and conversation is distracting.” If that doesn’t clearly -- and politely -- convey your message, then you need to find a massage therapist who is less verbal. DEAR ABBY: I hired a pet sitter to stay in my home for two days to care for my dog. (I have used him in the past.) After 24 hours of no response to my texts or phone calls, I asked a neighbor to check on my dog. The sitter never showed up. My dog had been left alone with no food or walks. Should I alert his other clients about what happened? I have this person’s client email list. It’s possible that other pets were also neglected. -- ANGRY PET OWNER IN HOUSTON DEAR ANGRY: Pet sitting is a sacred obligation, and if the sitter is for some reason unable to fulfill that responsibility, there should be a backup plan in place in case of emergency. Unless your sitter had a life-threatening emergency, by all means warn the other clients.

Hennessy ascends into leadership role for Saint Michael’s Women’s Basketball
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
COLCHESTER, Vt. — As one of eight children, Saint Michael’s College senior Coreen Hennessy (Chatham/Fryeburg Academy) is used to being part of a team. Over the past two seasons, as her older teammates have ceded their leadership roles upon graduation, Hennessy has stepped into the spotlight, serving as a captain this winter while nearly tripling her career scoring average entering the season. A 5-foot-7 guard, Hennessy is shooting 49.5 percent after leading the squad last winter (47.4). She entered this year with a 5.6-point career scoring average but turns in 13.5 per game in 201112, going for at least 13 eight times in 10 games. She also leads the squad in assists (2.7) while placing second in scoring, shooting, field goals (48), free throw shooting (80.0) and three-pointers (11). Hennessy’s 28 free throws are tied for second on the squad. Just 10 games into the Purple Knights’ schedule, which includes a number of national powers in the 16-team Northeast-10 Conference, she is only three assists short of her career high and is averaging 4.7 more points than the career-best 8.8 she had last winter. Among her best games were a 20-point effort on 7-of-11 shooting in 22 minutes of an 85-76 loss at Shippensburg Uni-
Kennett High Senior Jessie Wagner won the three-point shooting contest Tuesday at the annual Mike Lee Holiday Basketball Bash in Farmington. Wagner also helped her Eagles reach the tournament finals by beating Pittsfield 37-30 yesterday. They’ll play in the finals today at 5:30 p.m. (LYNORE WAGNER PHOTO)
versity on Nov. 12, and a 14-point, seven-assist performance in a 69-53 win against the University of Massachusetts at Lowell on Nov. 22. She shot 5-for7. Hennessy netted 13 points versus a pair of nationally-ranked squads last month, going 5-of-7 on free throws in a 63-62 loss to No. 17 Franklin Pierce University on Nov. 27 and adding four rebounds and

three assists during a 75-66 setback at No. 1 Bentley University on Nov. 30. The Purple Knights are 5-5 overall and 2-4 in the NE-10, having just snapped a three-game losing streak during which they lost by an average of 5.0 points. Saint Michael’s breaks until hosting Pace University on Jan. 3.
