Drilling lease legal fight takes a twist

ERATH, La. (NY Times) — It began as a landlordtenant dispute.The tenant was Texaco; the landlord the Broussard family, heirs of a Cajun rancher, who claimed that Texaco’s operation of a gas plant on their property had left the land contaminated. The lawsuit, of a kind not all that rare in these industry-heavy parts, had dragged on so long that 13 of the heirs had died. But it took a sudden and bitter turn in recent months, when another company — a company that, like Texaco, is a subsidiary of Chevron — sued to condemn most of the disputed land and expropriate it, arguing that it was acting in the national interest. As old leases get examined and environmental concerns become more publicized, neighborly disputes between residents and those drilling on their land are bound to get more heated. And few are more complicated than the fight between Chevron and the Broussards. The Chevron subsidiary that sued to take the land, Sabine Pipe Line, had quietly operated a pipeline hub across the road for nearly 60 years. In June, Sabine sent a letter to the family, saying the 14-year legal fight with Texaco was threatening the continued operation of one of the most important natural gas pipeline hubs in the country. The family could agree to sell the land, the letter said, or be forced to do so.

Egypt’s forces raid offices of nonprofits ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

CAIRO (NY Times) — Egyptian security forces stormed 17 offices of nonprofit groups around the country on Thursday, including at least three democracy-promotion groups financed by the United States, as part of an investigation that the military rulers say will reveal foreign hands in the recent outbreak of protests. In Cairo, heavily armed men wearing the black uniforms of the central security police

tore through boxes, hauled away files and computers and prevented employees from leaving offices of two of the American groups, the National Democratic Institute and the International Republican Institute, which are affiliated with American political parties and financed by the United States government. The security forces also raided the offices of the Washington-based Freedom House. The raids were a stark escalation in

With $30b arms deal, U.S. bolsters Saudi ties

HONOLULU (NY Times) — Fortifying one of its crucial allies in the Persian Gulf, the Obama administration announced a major weapons deal with Saudi Arabia on Thursday, saying it had agreed to sell F-15 fighter jets valued at nearly $30 billion to the Royal Saudi Air Force. The agreement is part of a broader 10-year, $60 billion arms package for Saudi Arabia that Congress approved a year ago. But its timing is laden with significance, with tensions over Iran

mounting and the United States pulling its last soldiers out of Iraq. It could also indicate that the chill between the United States and Saudi Arabia has thawed since the two longtime allies clashed over how each handled the Arab Spring. The administration announced the sale during a week when Iranian officials threatened to close the strategically vital Straits of Hormuz in response to indications that the United States planned to impose sanctions on Iranian oil exports.

what has appeared to be a campaign by the country’s military rulers to rally support by playing to nationalist and antiAmerican sentiment here. “General prosecutor & central security stormed N.D.I. office in Cairo & Assiut,” an employee of the National Democratic Institute wrote in a text message from inside its offices. “We are confined here as they’re searching and clearing out office.”

North Korea declares Kim Jong-un supreme leader SEOUL, South Korea (NY Times)— North Korea publicly declared the young heir Kim Jong-un its supreme leader at a huge rally on Thursday in Pyongyang that culminated with his ascent to the top of the hermetic Communist nation after nearly two weeks of national mourning for his father, Kim Jong-il. A crowd of tens of thousands, most of them uniformed soldiers, packed the plaza — named after Kim’s grandfather, the North’s founding president, Kim Il-sung — and those gathered swore their allegiance to the dynastic transfer of power. The event, a memorial service for Kim Jong-il, who died on Dec. 17, capped 13 days of mourning and introduced the era of his son. “Respected Comrade Kim Jong-un is now supreme leader of our party, military and people,” said Kim Yong-nam, the president of the North Korean Parliament, who is considered the ceremonial head of state. “He inherits the ideology, leadership, courage and audacity of Comrade Kim Jong-il.”

BERLIN — Bob Greene has no illusions about his chances of winning the 2012 Democratic primary for president. “The odds of my winning are extremely slim,” Greene said in an interview Tuesday morning. But he has registered in the New Hampshire primary and is actively campaigning to draw attention to his "thousand-year energy plan," centered on use of the element thorium to produce nuclear power. Greene, who holds a doctorate in physics and worked for several top software companies before retiring, said thorium is plentiful, cheaper, more manageable, and safer than uranium. “It should be a key component in energy policy debate and it’s not even there,” he said. While uranium has a half-life of 350,000 years, Greene said 83 percent of the radioactive waste generated by thorium has a half-life of 10 years or less. The remainder has a half-life of about 350 years. Greene said the United States has between 15 and 19 percent of the world’s supply of thorium. In the 1960s, he said the United States built a thorium reactor cooled by molten salt. He said the government chose to focus on light water uranium reactors in large part because uranium produces plutonium as a byproduct, which in turn is used to make bombs. If the country focused on thorium reactors with the same zeal applied to the Apollo space project, Greene predicts the United States could be in full thorium production in 10 years at a cost of about $2 billion.

to thorium nuclear energy, he said would allow the country to replace all fossil fuel plants over the next 50 years and freeze global warming. He stressed he has no financial interest in thorium nuclear energy. Greene said solar and wind energy are nice but they cannot provide enough energy to meet the country’s needs and the cost is expensive. He warned the Chinese government has announced it is interested in thorium energy and wants to own all the intellectual property rights to the process. “I actually see this as a national security issue,” Greene said.

BLUE LOON from page one

White Mountain Highway in Tamworth from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served and there will be a free raffle. "The buses will be available to walk through and ride on, and the drivers will be present for people to meet," according to Tri-County Community Action Program's transportation division director Beverly Raymond. "The staff of TriCounty CAP and the Carroll County Transit Advisory Committee would love to have you join us to celebrate and learn more about transportation in rural New Hampshire." In December of last year, the Blue Loon began operating a taxi-like door-to-door service within three zones in the county. The first zone is Conway, Madison and Albany. The second zone is Tamworth, Sandwich and Moultonborough. The third zone is Ossipee, Wolfeboro and Tuftonboro. To date, the door-to-door system has provided 6,700 rides, and ridership is growing steadily, said Raymond. The new service between Wolfeboro and Conway is referred to as a "deviated route" due to the fact that the buses will travel on a designated route according to a published schedule that will include additional time to allow the buses to deviate to serve passengers within one quarter mile of the route. The door-to-door service will help passengers get to and from the bus stops on the deviated route. Part of the reason it took so long for the Blue Loon's new routes to get going was a conflict between Tri-County Community Action Program and a Massachusettsbased private transportation company called Entertainment Tours, which had sought the contract to maintain and operate the buses on the deviated route. In June, Entertainment Tours vice president and co-owner Michael Curreri explained Tri-County CAP had to allow private companies to bid on the deviated

route because federal grant funds were to be used for it. Since then, Entertainment Tours has backed away from the conflict, said transit advisory committee member Dorothy Solomon. "Tri-County CAP does understand the frustration within the county due to the unexpected delay in the start up of the public route service," states a message on Carroll County Transit's website,www. "Not only were the buses late in arriving, but the public system needed to go out to bid, which turned into a lengthy process. The result, though, is that Tri-County CAP Transit, operating as Carroll County Transit, has been awarded the contract to directly operate the public route as well as the door-to-door service in the county, and we want to assure our current and future riders that we are moving forward as quickly as possible." For more information contact Raymond at 752-1741. Fares One way on each route will cost $2. Super Saver Passes will offer unlimited riding on all three routes for $5 a day, $20 a week, and $75 for a month. For example if a rider were to travel from West Ossipee to North Conway it would cost $2 if that person were to travel back to West Ossipee it would cost an additional $2 or $4 for the round trip. For passengers to travel from West Ossipee to North Conway then south to Wolfeboro, it would be either $2 each route (total of $6) or they could buy a Super Saver Pass for $5. This pass would enable them to also ride back to West Ossipee or back to North Conway at no additional cost. The points of interest that the routes will pass provide the opportunity for people to flag down the bus and get on as long as it is a safe place for the bus to stop, or to ensure a pick up at one of the points, call and schedule it 24 hours in advance.

In observance of the New Year’s holiday we will be closed on Monday, January 2nd.

Reality doesn’t belong to a political party To the editor: Sigh: Reader David Mason joins others in umbrage at my observation that Mr. Obama’s “stimulus” was a failure, by Mr. Obama’s own metrics. (“With Thomson criteria, Republican Legislature has failed,” Nov. 30). Mr. Mason says I “don’t want to let facts get in the way.” Well, if he’d offer some, I’d defer to them. The fact, which Mr. Mason can’t dispute, is that unemployment has been far higher than Obama insisted it would be, if the “stimulus” passed. Another fact is that the “stimulus” has been followed by the worst record of post-recession job creation — by far — since 1945. Yet another fact is that only two weeks ago, the director of the Congressional Budget Office testified that the “stimulus” will have “a net negative effect on the growth of GDP over 10 years.” Wasting nearly $1 trillion, including servicing the associated debt, exacts a price. Mr. Mason says “most economists and labor market observers agree that the stimulus created and saved jobs.” Of course it “created and saved jobs.” Who could spend the better

part of a billion dollars and not “create and save jobs”? The question is, how many net jobs resulted from this gargantuan expenditure, and at what price per job. Unlike Mr. Mason’s nonfalsifiable mush, those are hard numbers, and with far fewer people employed today than at the start of the recession, we know that we spent over 5 percent of GDP to produce zero net job gain. This is not what Obama promised, to put it mildly. Finally, Mr. Mason says that the Republicans in Concord should be judged by the same standard I apply to Obama — that is, measured by the yardsticks they proposed in seeking voter support. He’s absolutely right. And insofar as Republicans made promises falsifiable by events, they deserve to be measured against events. People who promise specific results from specific actions within specific periods should be deemed to have failed, at least in that respect, if the actions are authorized and the results don’t follow within the time proposed. Reality doesn’t belong to a political party. Maynard Thomson Freedom

Who are You? Remember, dissent is patriotic. So read a sign from a Tea Party protest in Nashville, Tennessee in 2009. And so it is. As I joined a small group of Occupy protesters in Schouler Park in North Conway on Black Friday, we were consistently asked variations of “just what is it you people want?” We want you to pay attention. We want you to vote. We want you to stop being complacent. I took exception to a sign one of the protesters held up that ended with the phrase, “eat the rich.” The rich are not culprits; we all are. We have co-signed a system that allows the wealthy among us to buy access and influence in ways that a simple vote will never be able to compete with. We have allowed our democracy to be intercepted by non-elected officials who wield disproportionate amounts of power, and by elected officials who motives are suspect. I remember when someone asked then President George H.W. Bush what the price of a gallon of milk was, and he was unable to say. It’s fair to say that the 37 members of the Senate and 110 members of the Congress who are millionaires might also struggle with the question. My father used to have a saying: “If I have to explain it to you, my explanation won’t do any good.” That’s where Occupy agrees. That’s why the system feels so broken. When the basic issues of making a grocery budget stretch or rolling the dice with a health care decision comes up, and they personally have forgotten (or never had to deal with it in their lives) how to deal with it, how can we expect them to pass laws that are in the our best interests? And who are the elusive 99 percent? Let me give you some examples, all within the middle class. Our first family, the Greens. They have two children, both in high school. Roy works as a contractor. Although work is slow, he has been able to piece together work through sub contracting and side jobs. He works six days a week. After work and on the weekends, he stacks wood, fixes up projects around the house, and takes the 18 year old around to find work. It’s been over a year since they started looking, but because he has a misdemeanor on his record, many employers will not even consider him. They estimate he has applied for over 70 jobs, many of them two or three times. He was going to enlist but a congenital defect prohibits his acceptance in the armed services. His parents do not know if they can afford to help him through college or tech school. Marie works part time as a LNA and part time as a bartender. Although they were able to spend down a great deal of debt over the past five years, they live paycheck to paycheck. They estimate that they bring home $4,000 a month. Neither parent has health insurance. Rent, a truck payment, insurance, winter fuel, medical bills and groceries run about $3,000 a month. That leaves $250 a week for everything else, including Christmas presents, gasoline, medications, vet bills, cable, Internet access, and other miscellaneous expenses. Marie has put off a mammogram for three years and a colonoscopy for two. They are able to eat dinner together only two nights a week because of their conflicting work schedules. Here’s the case of Joan and Tracey. Up until last year, Joan held a mid-level management position at a local ski mountain where she had been for over 10 years. Tracey was work-

ing in the trades, and was very successful in her work. They had two sons in college, were always current on their mortgage, and enjoyed two late model cars. Money was a concern that other people had; they were “living the American dream.” They lived within their means, but never wanted for much. Late last spring, with no warning, Joan was laid off of her job. She went from a salary of $50,000 with benefits to 10 weeks of unemployment. Meanwhile, Tracey was in a car accident that caused her to become permanently disabled. As a result, they lost the home that they had built. One of their sons has dropped out of college because he cannot obtain the loans necessary to continue because of the bad credit the foreclosure caused. Joan is waiting tables several nights a week, but because the tourists don’t yet seem to be pouring into town, she only averages $50 a night. They were deemed to be making too much money to receive fuel assistance. Their rental home averages 58 degrees on any given night. As their youngest approaches her senior year, they worry that they will not be able to afford to send her to college, although her grades are consistently in the honors category. They have just applied for food stamps. How about Lyn and John? When they moved to the valley 10 years ago, John was working as a sales manager for a major food manufacturer. They built a fixer upper, and Lyn worked at the local high school as a teacher’s assistant while getting her master’s degree. Shortly after John’s job was downsized, he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s’ Disease. He is in remission currently but the overflow of medical expenses has caused them to file for bankruptcy. Meanwhile Lyn has finished her degree, but it has not yet resulted in a more lucrative job offer. John is currently working an hourly job that pays 50 percent of what his old job paid. They have to share the one car that they have because they cannot afford to get their early model truck’s transmission replaced. When their horse needed a rather expensive surgery, they opted to have it humanely put down because they didn’t see how they would be able to afford the physical therapy that would be needed afterward. They were forced to give away their dogs because they could no longer afford the expense. They have taken in a tenant to help with the mortgage so they don’t lose the house. Although it helps, he has a drinking problem and it has caused a great deal of tension in the household. John has been sober for 20 years and is finding it increasingly difficult to remain so. So what do these 99 percent want? First of all I’d like to point out that they are not dirty, drug dealing hippies and anarchists. They are you and I. We can start with the payroll tax deduction being upheld. A nice second course would be strengthening the Affordable Care Act so these families might actually have access to affordable care. Occupy is simply trying to emphasize a dirty little secret in this country: The rich will never want for anything. But when all the rules are written so that they will never have to pay their fair share in taxes, it has to come from somewhere. And that somewhere is with alarming frequency, the declining middle class. Jen Bella is a psychotherapist and mom. She lives in East Conway.

Thanks for timely article on threats of invasive insects To the editor: I thoroughly enjoyed David Eastman’s article: “Country Ecology: Invasive forest insects” which was published in The Conway Daily Sun Dec 10. The human-assisted transportation of plant diseases and insect pests has been a problem in this country since the colonists inadvertently introduced the destructive apple pest, codling moth, in the 1600s. Chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and gypsy moth, all non-natives, have had their chance to change the structure of North America’s forests, parks and boulevards. Increasingly global markets have resulted in increasing probability that new destructive invasive insects and diseases will continue to be introduced to this country. A good defense includes the following: 1. Curtail the spread of these plant pests by identifying and regulating the commodity in which they are transported. Inspections and quarantines are some of the available regulatory tools. You incorrectly identified in your article that New Hampshire’s firewood quarantine only prevents out-of-state firewood from being moved into state parks and forests. In July, 2011, the quarantine was extended to prohibit the entry of all untreated out-of-state firewood. In other words, it is illegal to bring firewood from other states into New Hampshire. Exceptions are wood that has been certified and labeled as heat-treated firewood, and firewood moved under compliance agreement. Firewood is allowed from specific counties in Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts for home heating purposes if the business or resident first obtains a compliance agreement from the Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food (DAMF), or the Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED). In July, an announcement about these new regulations was carried on radio spots and in more than 200 national and regional newspapers. The objective of this firewood quarantine is to reduce the likelihood of importing Asian longhorned beetle, emerald ash borer, or other economically damaging forest pests into the state. 2. Monitor for these pests. Last

year, in cooperation with the USDA Animal Plant Health Inspection Service Plant Protection and Quarantine (USDA APHIS PPQ), the DAMF and DRED deployed 150 purple panel traps across the state for the early detection of emerald ash borer. No emerald ash borers were found on these traps. In 2012, far more traps will be deployed in an effort to detect this destructive forest pest early. Early detection results in more effective and less costly control measures. 3. Have a well-informed public. For several years, the DAMF, DRED, UNH Cooperative Extension, USDA APHIS PPQ and the US Forest Service have provided outreach to New Hampshire residents about the dangers posed by these invasive forest pests, particularly Asian longhorned beetle and emerald ash borer, neither of which has been detected in the state. Many residents are aware of and alerted to the threats posed by these invasive insects. State and federal agencies routinely respond to calls from concerned citizens who believe that they have evidence of these destructive forest pests. In 2011, the two insects most frequently sent to DAMF for identification were the native whitespotted sawyer, and the western conifer seed bug. Both of these insects are readily mistaken for Asian longhorned beetle by the layperson. Outreach efforts continue to be updated with the most recent available information on the known range of these insects, as well as available management options. For more information about some of these invasive insect pests, the quarantines for the transportation of firewood or movement of hemlock nursery stock and woody material, and other regulatory information, please visit the Division of Plant Industry’s website at: Thank you again for your timely article on the threats posed by destructive invasive insects.

Reminding people dealing with cancer, you’re not alone To the editor: The holidays are a time of joy and celebration. But if you’re dealing with cancer – either through your own illness or that of a loved one – this time of the year may be especially challenging. As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society, I want to remind everyone dealing with cancer that they are not alone. The American Cancer Society offers free information, day-to-day help, and emotional support to help you through every step of your cancer journey – so you or your loved one can focus on getting well. We’re here for you around the clock at (800) 227-2345 or cancer. org. Here in New Hampshire, local volunteers drive patients to their treatments, help them deal with the side effects of cancer, and provide the peer support that can make a world of difference in their recovery. This year, I am thankful to the American Cancer Society for allowing people of all ages to participate in their events. Events that help us cure cancer one

step at a time. When I began volunteering two years ago, I was a traffic director for the local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. This past year I was fortunate enough to be able to serve as the advocacy chair for Making Strides North Conway. I want to take a moment and say thank you to Kathy Metz and the whole 2011 Strides committee. Together they all made a difference in the fight against breast cancer! The holiday season is the perfect time to share hope with people facing cancer and their families. Please consider making a charitable donation to help save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

tional excellence as a critical element of our community's economic viability, specifically as it impacts business development and retention, sustained property values, and social diversity." The coalition has five objectives: • Support efforts to establish and ensure passage of a competitive compensation package for teachers with a goal of retaining the most talented instructors. • Support efforts to establish a clear and effective pathway for excellence for every student to reach their potential, including the highest achievers. • Support efforts to define student performance-based educational objectives at all educational levels; and to establish transparent and continuous achievement monitoring programs. • Develop a community-based mentoring group to provide college contacts/recommendations, professional internships and career connections. • Articulate a community-wide statement/referendum of support for excellence in education that can be submitted by petition as a town warrant article for vote in each Mount Washington Valley community. *** On March 18, the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association and New Hampshire Athletic Directors Association held their annual Scholar Athlete Awards Ceremony in Concord. Kennett High was well represented as 25 students were invited to attend and had the opportunity to meet Gov. John Lynch. "I have to tell you how proud I am of our student-athletes," Kennett High principal Neal Moylan said. "They represented themselves, their families, their classmates and this community in a first-class manner. You just get energized when you spend time with our students." Invited Eagles included Emily Leich, Maddison Smith, Sam Meader, Hannah Wright, Meaghan Macdonald, Danielle Mason, Vicki Weigold, Taylor Gardella, Amber McPherson, Elizabeth Major, Gabriel Roberts, Jordan Lemerise, Kate Bishop, Drew Bormann, Peter Grzesik, Henney Sullivan, Dalton L'Heureux, Duncan Cromwell, Austen Bernier, Tristan Weber, Tristan McLeod, Vincent Patch, Carter Butler, Adam Murata and Matt Lautenschlager N.H. Interscholastic Athletic Asso-

ciation high school student-athletes from throughout New Hampshire were recognized for achieving academic and athletic excellence. Award recipients are nominated each year by their school principals based on several criteria. The high school seniors must have a B-plus grade-point average, letter and be currently actively in at least two varsity sports, participate in community service activities and serve as role models to their peers. At the awards ceremony, each student-athlete received an award certificate and a commemorative pin. Gov. John H. Lynch addressed the group and presented a proclamation. *** Henney Sullivan, the student body president at Kennett High, became the school's first National Merit Scholarship winner in recent memory. He and the school received the news May 1. "It is with great pride and pleasure that we learned that James 'Henney' Sullivan has been selected as a National Merit Scholarship winner," Kennett High principal Neal Moylan announced. "From approximately 1.5 million students who entered the 2011 National Merit Scholarship program, only about 16,000 were named semi-finalists. To become a finalist, the semiHenney Sullivan finalist had to submit a detailed scholarship application and present a record of very high academic performance. All winners of about 8,400 National Merit Scholarships were chosen from the group of 15,000 distinguished finalists." Sullivan, the son of Marnie Cobb and Dennis Sullivan, of Eaton, headed to Harvard in the fall for college. "We're all thrilled and very proud of Henney," Moylan said. "I couldn't be happier for him; he thoroughly deserves this honor. He's done an awesome, awesome job representing Kennett and our community."

tion and college scholarships administered by National Merit Scholarship Corp., a privately-funded, not-forprofit organization. Sullivan received even more good news in May when it was announced he was the valedictorian for Kennett High while classmate Peter Grzesik was salutatorian. *** Students at Kennett High School got a taste of some healthy breakfast and lunch alternatives May 17, and they liked them. The Kennett High student council held a healthy foods tasting during lunch hours, allowing fellow Eagles the opportunity to sample a number of different offerings from current school vendors Sysco, U.S. Foodservice and PFG Northcenter and then rate the items. Some of the most popular items appeared on future breakfast and lunch menus in the school cafeteria. "It turned out quite well," then junior Thomas Gregston, treasurer for the student council, said. "We'd been working on this for a number of months. We want to make healthier options available for everyone." Students had the opportunity to try wheat dough pizza; multi-grain dough pizza; chicken sausage; Greek flavored Stoneyfield yogurt; organic yogurt; a breakfast sandwich featuring egg whites, veggies, turkey bacon on a wheat muffin; vitamin fortified doughnuts; apple slices; three different types of breakfast bars — whole grain, ultimate and bar oatmeal cinnamon; and whole wheat pasta. "The whole idea is to give kids healthy food options," Tom Murphy, the head cook at Kennett High, said. "These are things they don't necessarily get a chance to taste at home. We've got some prime options for them to try. All of our vendors have been wonderful, they've really embraced what we're trying to do." *** J. Nicky Sullivan of Kennett High School was named New Hampshire Trig-Star Runner Up for 2011 at the New Hampshire Land Surveyors Association's 21st annual Statewide Trig-Star Competition held May 15 at the New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord. Sullivan is the son of Dennis Sullivan and Marnie Cobbs of Eaton, and was a sophomore at the time of the competition. The New Hampshire Land Surveyors Foundation awarded a $500 scholarship to Sullivan. "We couldn't be prouder of Nicky," Kennett principal Neal Moylan said. "He's a wonderful young man." The Statewide Trig-Star Contest is a competition sponsored by land surveyors and teachers throughout New Hampshire to determine the most highly skilled high school student in New Hampshire at the practical application of trigonometry. Kevin Tilton, LLS, and Seth Burnell, SIT, of H. E. Bergeron Engineers, North Conway, were co–sponsors of Sullivan’s local contest. Tilton and Burnell are also Kennett alumni. In fact, Burnell was the second-place finisher in the N.H. Trig-Star Contest in 1997 and 1998. *** Twenty-three advanced building

trades students left their mark on Kennett High School in late May. The Eagles — Leeana Hart, Christine Lamontaine, Ruby Bennett, Jennelle Hill, Wendell Kiesman, Alex Kidder, Tim Hill, Zachary Shackford, Mike Mosher, Tim Currier, Tyler Rokowski, Eric Toussaint, Edward Prevost, Zachary Cromwell, Greg Palmer, John Colcord, Ben Peare, John Angelone, Chris Collins, John Marshall, Tyler Eldridge, David Farinella and Ricky Johnston — completed a new gazebo outside the school cafeteria. Jason Daggett, property maintenance/building trades teacher in the MWV Career and Technical Center at Kennett, said the project took about a month to complete with the students doing everything from designing to building and shingling the roof. "I think they did a great job," Daggett said. "It was a good project for us." *** A record 29 students graduated from the Eagle Academy May 24 in a ceremony attended by nearly 450 family members, friends, teachers and classmates in Loynd Auditorium at Kennett High School. The eighth graduating class of Eagle Academy was made up of Ross M. Benson, Kenneth Burkett, Dylan Clancy, Jerry A. Consiglio, Sean P. Cougill, Branden R. Dalphonese, Lindsay R. Ferren, Mackenzie N. French, Christopher P. Fryslie, Robin L. Gale, Comfort S. George, Douglas A. Hart, Noelle E. Janvrin, Dale A. Kimball, Nichole M. Lane, Amanda McGowan, Brandon McLellan, Denali R. McPherson, James M. Munro Jr., Christopher J. Noyes, Gregory R. Palmer, Courtney J. Peare, Laura R. Pittman, Kali Rodger, Alana Rogers, Paul V.R. Smith, John Stearns, Skylar O. Struble and Emmanuel Ticas. The Eagle Academy provides students an alternative to regular classes to earn a high school diploma. It was a day to remember for all on hand. For the first time, students elected one of their classmates — Dale Kimball — to deliver a commencement address rather than having a member of the school's faculty. Standing in front of the near capacity auditorium, Kimball took a deep breath and smiled. "I've never done anything like this in my life. I'm going to take this as punishment from all of my English teachers for my sarcasm," he said with a big grin. Eleven students, representing the largest group to date, became the fourth group of students to successfully graduate from the GED (General Equivalency Degree) program at Kennett High School in early June. Earning their degrees were Forrest Andrews, Patrick Shannon, Robert Phipps, April Dennis, Calah Orfant, Matthew Tymon, Diane Fernald, Melissa Guilianna, Caydran Wentworth McGonagle, Joseph LaMarche and Garrett Pettis. "I can't tell you how proud they are of themselves," Rachelle Cox, student advocate and director of alternative programs at Kennett High, said. "This is a momentous occasion for Kennett and our community. They and their families are so proud, and rightfully so." see EDUCATION page 10

*** On June 18, 180 Kennett High students graduated. Kennett High principal Neal Moylan praised the newest alumni. "Seniors, you are about to close one chapter of your life and enter a future filled with many exciting opportunities. Some of you will continue with formal education, at colleges and specialty schools; others will enter the military or proceed directly into the workforce. I have no doubt you will all make a special mark on the world as you go forth in much the same way as you have here at Kennett. "For you are the first class to earn your Kennett degree by completing all four years at the new campus. Now as you sit ready to complete your time here, I know many of you are surprised at how quickly that time has passed. You have taken many different paths to arrive at this moment and have worked hard to achieve worthwhile objectives, learned new skills, made new friends and have no doubt discovered those special attributes which make you unique. In those four years you have come together from different schools, different towns and now you sit together today as one: the Class of 2011, one of the most exceptional classes in recent memory." *** Principals don't retire, they just come back to work in other capacities within the Conway School District. Laura Jawitz and Jack Loynd, the two most recent principals to retire from their principalships, were both rehired to different positions within the district by the Conway School Board on July 20. They were positions both were very familiar with. Jawitz, who served as principal of Pine Tree Elementary School for 23 years prior to her retirement June 30, was hired as the Title I co-coordinator along with Christine Thompson. Ironically, Jawitz filled the position vacated by her successor, Aimee

Frechette, who became the Pine Tree principal on July 1. Also, for 10 years prior to accepting the principal post in Center Conway, Jawitz served as Title I coordinator for SAU 9 (Madison, Tamworth and Freedom were members of the SAU at that time before later creating SAU 13). Loynd, who served as principal at Kennett High from July 2000 to June 2009, was hired as math teacher at the high school. Prior to becoming principal at Kennett High, Loynd was a former department head for the school's math department and later became the district's curriculum coordinator. *** Kennett High's SAT scores, which had been on a three-year decline, have risen 95 points in two years and now exceed the national average scores. "Here's the beef," Kennett principal Neal Moylan said, smiling, as he presented members of the Conway School Board with his board report highlighting the improvement in the school's SAT scores Sept. 19. "I sat before the (Conway Municipal) Budget Committee last winter, and the word I got was, 'Show me the beef (as far as SAT scores go),'" Moylan said. "I can proudly stand before you and tell you here's the beef. The cumulative SAT scores for the 2009-2010 year showed an 81 point increase over the 2010 scores and establish our school SAT average at 1,550. This is Kennett High School's highest SAT cumulative average and is our second consecutive year of SAT score improvement. The Kennett two-year increase totals 95 points which has propelled our school scores above the national average in every category." SAT Reasoning Test (formerly Scholastic Aptitude Test and Scholastic Assessment Test) is a standardized test for college admissions. *** Seniors at Kennett High have more privileges than ever, thanks to one of see next page

their classmates. Chris King took two weeks out of his summer to visit with area businesses where he made a presentation asking if they'd be willing to offer a school-year-long discount to seniors. He created the senior privilege card and got numerous businesses on board. "I asked my brother and sister who both went to the old Kennett (on Main Street in Conway Village) what they had when they were seniors for privileges," King, who is the senior class president, said Sept. 26. "They used to be able to go across the street to Fire 21 and up to Bea's Cafe. We don't have anything like that here. I know a lot of that has to do with where we're located. I checked with the administration and they told me we're not allowed to leave campus, so I came up with the next best thing." Students must maintain a C grade point average and meet school attendance requirements in order to maintain their privileges. King and the entire student body currently have

student identification cards that serve as both an ID and a school lunch card. King proposed putting a colored sticker on the back of seniors' cards — the color would change with each marking period — and if you meet the requirements you receive the proper colored decal. *** In early October, after 26 years as principal of John Fuller School, Mark Zangari decided it's time to explore other opportunities, both in and out of the educational field. The Conway School Board formally accepted his resignation, which won't take effect until the end of this school year in June. "We can chain him to his desk and say no, can't we?" Dick Klement, of the school board, asked, smiling. Zangari has been at the helm of John Fuller since July of 1986, but has been within SAU 9 for longer than that. Prior to accepting the post in North Conway, Zangari was a teaching principal in Jackson at the Jackson Grammar School. "It might seem like a long time, but it also seems

to me like it's flown by, like a minute," Zangari said. *** Members of the Class of 2012 became the first holders of the newly created Art Walker Homecoming Cup Oct. 10, but the real winners at Kennett High during homecoming week may well have been the entire student body. Principal Neal Moylan told the Conway School Board that it may have been the most successful homecoming in the school's history. School spirit has soared to a whole new level among the Eagles. "I have to tell you Chris King (senior class president), Thomas Gregston (student body president) and the entire student council did just an incredible job all week long. Our school spirit is at a level no one has ever seen before." The Kennett seniors finished first followed by the sophomores, juniors and freshmen. King, who serves as the student representative to the school board, was also on hand, proudly displaysee EDUCATION page 12

ing the Art Walker Cup which was created in memory of the late educator who was also a huge Kennett supporter. "Art was 85 and went to everything," King said. "He represents the spirit of Kennett and we wanted to make this trophy a lasting tribute. Each year, the class with the most points at the end of the week will get their class engraved on the Art Walker Homecoming Cup. "In recent years it seemed like school spirit had declined," he continued. "It's amazing how one good homecoming dosage can cure all that." *** In November, Kennett High garnered national attention for academic improvement. School officials learned the Conway School District had been placed on the College Board’s second annual AP District Honor Roll for Significant Gains in Advanced Placement

Access and Student Performance. There were 367 school districts across the nation that were recognized. "I think it's not only an honor for the entire district, but the entire Mount Washington Valley community," school superintendent Carl Nelson said. "This community understands the value of education and has been so supportive." Conway was among just three New Hampshire school districts to be recognized. It joins the Bedford and Gilford districts. The Advanced Placement (AP) program is a curriculum in the United States and Canada sponsored by the College Board which offers standardized courses to high school students that are generally recognized to be equivalent to undergraduate courses in college. Participating colleges grant credit to students who obtained high enough scores on the exams to qualify.

The College Board, a non-profit organization based in New York City, has run the AP program since 1955. *** December arrived and so too did more good news. Darien Vaughan saw one of his dreams come when the Kennett High senior learned he has successfully earned an appointment to West Point. The Madison resident is the third student in the last 35 years from Kennett High to be accepted to a U.S. military academy. Tom and David Dyrenforth, both from Tamworth, graduated from West Point in 2006 and 2000, respectively. "We're so proud of Darien," Kennett High principal Neal Moylan said. "For him to want to serve this nation is so admirable. I have no doubt that he will make his family, this school and community proud. An appointment to West Point is quite an accomplishment."

In order to get into West Point, Vaughan had to go through a rigorous application process that includes a pre-candidate questionnaire and, after passing the first phase, he had to obtain a nomination to West Point from either the vice president of the United States, or either of the U.S. senators or congressmen from New Hampshire. Congressional nominations are usually announced between December and March. *** Kennett High held its annual National Honor Society induction ceremony Dec. 12, and 37 new inductees — seven seniors and 30 juniors — joined their peers of 24 seniors who were previously inducted.

Samantha Sylvester delivered a commencement address. "As this is an alternative high school, none of us are where we imagined we would be on graduation day, but that's the beauty of life," she said. "We almost never end up where we planned to be. We all have our own stories as to how we got here. No matter how messy and complicated those stories may be, they are all ending here tonight with success and a new chapter of our lives is beginning. "Dr. Seuss once said, 'You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. You are the one who'll decide where to go.' No matter what we end up doing with our futures, I think we can all agree the Eagle Academy has provided us with the education we need to pursue potential opportunities in our near future."

Albee: Jail superintendent shouldn't 'take the hit' for the recent jail break BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — The corrections department superintendent shouldn't bear the blame for the recent jail break, said the county commission chairman and a former county commissioner on Dec. 21. Inmate David Hobson, 34, of York County Maine, escaped from the county jail on Dec. 1. Hobson was caught in Rochester days later. Hobson made his escape by jumping off the jail's roof when a corrections officer, who was monitoring an inside and outside area, stepped inside. After the incident, superintendent Jason Johnson told commissioners that he was frustrated because the county hadn't given him enough corrections officers to appropriately staff the jail or enough money to secure the perimeter. In Carroll County government, a group of 14 state representatives, called the delegation, approves budgets, which county commissioners manage with help from department heads. "I'm going to take responsibility to the extent that I was a commissioner," said former commissioner Chip Albee who lost his re-election bid last year. "This body and other bodies before have made conscious decisions not to put money into the facility. We've only had two escapes in 10 years so from a cost-benefit analysis, maybe we made the right decision. To let our superintendent take the hit for this completely is misguided." Further, Albee said the situation with the escapes would have been much more GREENE from page 3

A resident of Mountain View, Calif., Greene said he registered for the New Hampshire primary because the $1,000 filing fee was affordable and he has connections to the state. He grew up in Lowell, Mass, just across the New Hampshire border, and has spent considerable time in the Granite State. He has climbed all 48 peaks over 4,000 feet and has a sister who lives in Nashua and a brother with a camp in Pittsburg. He said he filed for the Democratic primary even though President Obama is running for re-election

complicated had the inmates injured somebody. In the first escape, an inmate walked off while working outside. Commission chairman David Sorensen agreed with Albee. Sorensen says Johnson does his job by asking for more staffing and perimeter security. The commission and the delegation didn't give him what he requested. "Everybody needs to share the fault of that person leaving our facility," said Sorensen. "He (Johnson) does the job he's appointed to do and he does it well with the limitations he has." Changes will be made to the exercise yard where Hobson escaped. Those changes will prevent people from being able to climb up on the roof that Hobson jumped from. Johnson says the corrections department should have 36 corrections officers but it only has 29. The commission is only proposing to add two more. Sorensen said the corrections department is doing an internal investigation about the jail break. He asked Carroll County Sheriff Christopher Conley to evaluate law enforcement's response to the escape. Further, Johnson said additional perimeter fencing could cost as much as $25,000 to $41,000. Last Wednesday, Sorensen said there is a clear need for more perimeter fencing. There was an incident where someone from the outside approached a female inmate's window. "There was no perimeter fence around that area or around the women's exercise yard," said Sorensen. because he is a Democrat and the Republican side of the ticket is crowded with 30 candidates competing. In contrast, there are 14 candidates on the Democratic ballot. His future as a candidate after the Jan. 10 New Hampshire primary depends on the level of support he receives. Regardless of what happens next month, Greene said he had to try to raise awareness of the benefit of thorium as a viable alternative to the country’s energy woes. “How could I tell my son I knew of something significant that would really change his life and then sat on the couch,” he said.

2011 proved to a vibrant year for theater in North Conway with Arts in Motion, M&D Productions and Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company putting on a wide array of shows. Above is a collage of Arts in Motions’ “Guys and Dolls,” M&D’s “The Diary of Anne Frank” and Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company’s “Sweeney Todd.”

Laughs, tears and song A look back at 2011’s theater scene BY ALEC KERR


As 2011 comes to close it is clear that a vibrant theater scene continues to thrive in North Conway. North Conway’s two community theater companies, Arts in Motions and M&D Productions, and one professional company, Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company, put on a wide range of comedies, dramas and musicals over the course of the last 12 months. Here are highlights for each of the companies’ seasons. Arts in Motion Arts in Motion started the year off with “The Fantasticks,” a light, frothy entertainment that was a showcase for its, mostly, young cast including Matt Stoker, Rafe Matregrano and Emilie Jensen. Jensen in particularly left a lasting impression thanks to assured comic timing and powerhouse vocals. In the show’s best number “Round and Round,” through clever choreog-

“It was a completely different role from things I’ve done in the past.” — Taylor Hill on “Guy and Dolls” raphy that was performed with precision, it appeared as if Matregrano was controlling Jensen’s movements like a puppeteer. Matregrano later appeared in “Jesus Christ Superstar,” reprising the role of Jesus Christ, which he previously played in M&D’s “Godspell.” The role allowed Matregrano to show off his impressive vocal range, but he wasn’t the only one in the cast that made an impact. Paul Allen in the relatively small but crucial role of Pontius Pilate had a powerful voice matched by commanding stage presence. Holly Reville brought warmth and compassion to Mary Magdalene. She had a pure, clear and beautiful voice. Matregrano, Allen and Reville didn’t merely sing

the songs, but put genuine conviction, passion and turmoil into them. Kennett High School teamed with Arts in Motion for “Guys and Dolls,” a production whose rehearsal schedule didn’t mesh with Mother Nature’s schedule. Canceled rehearsals led to a stressful but rewarding run up to opening night. The principal leads of the show, Taylor Hill, Hannah Paven, Philip Mathieu and Kevin Ahearn, had roles that allowed them to stretch and play against their usual types. “It was a completely different role from things I’ve done in the past,” Hill said. “Sarah is really conservative. I’m not really used to playing a conservative role, so I guess that was challenge in itself.” Arts in Motions’ best show of the year was “The Miracle Worker,” the moving and inspiring story of Helen Keller, a deaf and blind girl, who, thanks to the love, support and perseverance of her live-in tutor, Anne see THEATER page 21

So long to 2011; hello to 2012 BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

LEST AULD ACQUAINTANCE be forgot, we take a look back at 2011 as seen through the pages of The Valley Voice, as we gear up for New Hampshire's First-in-the-Nation Presidential Primary on Jan. 10. • It was a deeply troubling time in the valley, as the community was rocked by the Dittmeyer murder in April. • Obama (and many military and intelligence personnel) got Osama in May, and the the F.B.I. finally caught 81-yearold Boston mobster Whitey Bulger and his girlfriend in Santa Monica June 22 after 16 years on the run. • It was a year that, from all indications, we did not see the end of the world, despite predictions by some of us all entering a five-month “Day of Judgment,” May 21 through Oct. 21. • For many in New England and locally, that day of destruction actually came on Aug. 28, when Tropical Storm Irene hit, leaving much flood damage in its wake. Remember that YouTube video of Jackson Falls and the East Branch? State Department of Transportation crews rallied to get both the Kancamagus Highway and Crawford Notch open in time for foliage season. (Of note to local historians, the storm hit on the the 185th anniversary of the destructive Willey Slide in Crawford Notch of August 1826). • It was the year of Occupy Wall Street protests with many other streets throughout the nation and world being "occupied" including the intersection of Route 153 and Main Street in Conway. • As for New Hampshire's soon-toarrive GOP presidential primary, we like what former Utah Gov. Jon Hunstman said when he was interviewed

Thursday morning about skipping the Iowa caucuses to concentrate on the Granite State's primary. ••• THE BEST OF TIMES AND ... : On a sports note, it was a year that saw the Boston Bruins win their sixth Stanley Cup in franchise history by shutting out the Canucks 4-0 in Vancouver in Game 7 on June 15, thus breaking a 39-year Cup drought that went back to the Bobby Orr glory days. The valley's connection to Boston sports was both celebrated and bemoaned at Delaney's Hole-inthe-Wall Sept. 28, a day that will be remembered as one of extremes for New England sports fans. Thanks to local pilot Steve “Speedo” Cheney, the day was highlighted by the chopper arrival of the Stanley Cup that Wednesday afternoon at Delaney's. Speedo also flew the Cup over Sherman Farm's corn maize layout en route to its final destination that day in Cornish, Maine, as the East Conway maize featured a design that was in tribute to outstanding Bruins netminder Tim Thomas. With a full crowd at watching at Delaney's and other local watering spots, the day ended with one of the most excruciating losses in Boston Red Sox history, with the BoSox losing to the lowly Orioles. It knocked the Sox out of the wild card race, thus ending a season that had had so much promise. see next page

There's always hope for the BoSox for this year, right? Meanwhile, after a rough start, the Bruins are now atop the Northeast standings and playing some great hockey. Could this be a repeat year? ••• LOCAL HEROES: As fellow Sun scribe Lloyd Jones reported in Thursday's paper, the major local sports highlight of the year was the Major League debut of Pittsburgh pitching ace Jeff “The Redstone Rocket” Locke in September. We're all proud of you, Jeff! We also salute Ace Tarberry and Lianne Smith for their skiing success, on the U.S. Ski Team, and local ski legends Phil Gravink and Tyler Palmer, the latter of whom were named in 2011 to the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame. Many of those ski luminaries were at Cranmore in June for the well-attended Damon O’Neal Scholar-

ship gala.

••• BLEND, DEVO2 AND FARGOS: Music fans who may be a bit long in the tooth had three very good reasons to celebrate in 2011: the Blend, or parts of it, held a re-union show of sorts at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds in June as a benefit for the Shawn Smith for Kids Foundation, Tom Dean and Alana MacDonald and friends regrouped for a Devonsquare show at Cranmore in August, and Them Fargo Brothers played three shows in the valley at Horsefeathers and the Red Parka Pub in November — their first in two years, and their second since their breakup in the early 1990s. Devonsquare's show was held as part of a fund-raiser for the North Conway Firefighters' Association. Meanwhile, Tom and Alana continue to perform as part of the Nutopians with Aztec Two-Step’s Rex Fowler in tribute shows to John Lennon’s music. They are working on a second CD to be released this coming year, notes Tom. Also of note on the musical scene, Open Mics flourished in the valley at Maestro's (Sundays), the Red Parka (Mondays), at the Wildcat (Hoot Tuesdays), and Thursdays at Route 302 Roadhouse. The Shannon Door hosted the annual Peter Lewis/Peter White Musical Scholarship Concert in September. It was the 25th annual concert overall in Peter Lewis' memory, and the seventh in the two Peters' honor. In November, May Kelly's Irish Cottage's seissiun musicians were treated to a tour of proprietor Patsy and Marie McArdle’s home county region on the Emerald Isle. They performed five gigs, and made contacts with some of Ireland's top musicians who may return the favor by see next page

coming to the valley in 2012. You don't have to go to Ireland to hear the great music, however — the sessions are held every Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m. at May Kelly's. In other musical highlights of the year, kudos to Heather Pierson, Jon Sarty and Carol Noonan, all of whom released solo CDs and performed several well-received shows at local venues such as Carol's Stone Mountain Arts Center (which celebrated its fifth anniversary this year), the Little White Church in Eaton, the Leura Hill Eastman Arts Center, Salyards, and Theater in the Wood. Arts Jubilee celebrated its 29th season this past summer, and for the first time, charged a mandatory admission fee to offset expenses. The series was highlighted by performances by valley favorites Ceili Rain, the Wicked Smart Horn Band, Entrain, Voices of the Valley, and the return of the New England Wind Symphony — the latter of whom were guest conducted by yours truly in truly a wonderful bucket list kind of night. The following week, Jen’s Friends hosted a concert by local musicians to help celebrate the local cancer relief foundation's raising of its millionth dollar for patients since its formation 14 years ago in honor of Jen Hill. ••• MILESTONE YEAR: It was a year of many anniversaries: Memorial Hospital's 100th; King Pine's 50th and Purity Spring Resort's 100th; the 70th anniversary in April of the first descent of the Tuckerman headwall; the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Weeks Act, which led in 1918 to the creation of the White Mountain National Forest; the 150th anniversary of the Mount Washington Auto Road (which saw the return of the Climb to the Clouds Automobile Hillclimb in June as part of that summer celebration); the MWV Chamber of Commerce's 100th; the 20th anniversary this past May 15 of local climber see next page

rich can live forever. The poor die young. “In Time,” like “Source Code” and “Adjustment Bureau” has a romantic element to it with Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried teaming up for some “Bonnie and Clyde” meets Robin Hood adventures. It is handled in a way that is clever and thought provoking. Return of the romantic comedy In recent years the romantic comedy has been a dire wasteland with films like “The Ugly Truth” requiring their female leads to be shrill, uptight control freaks. All romantic comedies have the same ending. It is how you get there that counts and that journey, of late, had been painful. It was a relief that 2011 marked a return of romantic comedies with intelligence and wit. Much was written about “No Strings Attached” and “Friends with Benefits” being the same movie — friends who decide to have sex — but both films were well made and funny. “No Strings Attached” featured solid performance from Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher and a fine supporting performance by Kevin Kline as Kutcher’s father. “Friends with Benefits” was the better of the two, though, with the cute couple of Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis surrounded by an excellent supporting cast including Patricia Clarkson, Woody Harrelson, Jenny Elfman and Richard Jenkins. The writing was a bit sharper and the characters felt more like real people with real problems. “Crazy Stupid Love” was an ensemble film with humor and heart. Steve Carell is dumped by his wife Julianne Moore and gets a makeover by a womanizing playboy (Ryan Gosling) who

takes pity on him. Gosling then meets Emma Stone and realizes he wants more than just flings. Carell and Gosling’s dynamic is the best thing about this film. Stone continues to reveal herself to be a shrewd comic actor able to also handle dramatic scenes. Even Woody Allen returned to the romantic comedy genre with the wonderfully fanciful “Midnight in Paris.” Owen Wilson stars as a writer who idealizes Paris in the 1920s and magically gets whisked back there every midnight to hobnob with the likes of Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Somehow the signature Allen dialogue coming from Wilson's typically laid back performance makes both familiar personas feel fresh. Sequels and remakes that surprise Every year we are bombarded with a seemingly endless parade of sequels, prequels, reboots and remakes. This year had its fair share of rubbish ones, but there was also a high quota of such films that were actually rather good. “Rise of the Planet of Apes,” a prequel that showed how the intelligent apes that Charlton Heston first encountered back in 1968 came to be, proved to be surprisingly engaging. Andy Serkis, the man behind Gollum in “Lord of the Rings,” gives another superb motion-capture performance as Caesar, the ape that will lead the revolution. The heart of the film is the relationship between Caesar and his surrogate father played by James Franco. It is a long time before ape revolt breaks loose and the film earns that final action sequence. Horror remakes are often particularly barren land, but “Fright Night” and “The Thing,” which was half prequel/half remake, were made with clear affec-

tion for their originals. “Fright Night” in fact may actually be an improvement over the charming but cheesy 1980s original. Colin Farrell gives a truly menacing performance as the vampire next door and there’s a nice tongue-incheek tone. “The Thing” doesn’t surpass the 1982 version, but it does honor it. The film is aided by a strong performance by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. “The Muppets” proved to be the triumphant return of everyone’s favorite felt friends. Co-written by human star Jason Segel and featuring fantastic songs by Flight of the Conchord’s Bret McKenzie, the film captured the essence and magic of Jim Henson’s creations. “Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” the fourth in a franchise many counted as down and out, may well be the best of the series, or at the very least matches the first. The masterful set piece of the film features Tom Cruise climbing Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. “X-Men: First Class” took the flat-lining “X-Men” franchise and brought it back to life by going back to the beginning. The strong cast led by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as the future Professor X and Magneto, a smart script and assured direction by Michael Vaughn made this high energy fun. If only all sequels, remakes and reboots could be made with this level of care. Summer of the superhero The superhero movie has become a mainstay of the summer movie season and this held true for 2011. In addition to “X-Men,” “Thor,” “Captain America” and “The Green Lantern” all graced the silver screen. With the exception of “Green Lantern,” which was still watchable, these were all examples of high quality big-budget entertainment. These movies had style, atmosphere and substance.

Our first free Thanksgiving Dinner was a great success! We were able to cook and serve for almost 100 people including the volunteers and our family. John & I, on behalf of everyone at Rafferty’s Restaurant & Pub, would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped make this day possible. Our Thanksgiving Day volunteers included Sharleen & Fred Cronin, Kathi Bradley, Glenn Rideout, Nick Panno, Scott Roy, Gail & Mikayla Wyman, Mary Seavey, Fred Somers and Jenn Rafferty. Thank you to our head chef Joe Rafferty and all our staff for all their prepping and getting everything ready for the day. The following were generous enough to donate turkeys; Gibson Center, Vaughn Community Center, Larry Amundson, Joe Rafferty and Glenn Rideout. We also had donations from Hannaford’s, Vinnie Rubbe, Dan Belfower, Thompson House Eatery, Dunkin Donuts, Julie Richardson, Grants Shop n Save, Vintage Baking Co, Shaw’s and Pete’s Equipment.

that was profoundly moving. A close second for raw power was “Misery’s Child,” an adaptation of Stephen King’s “Misery,” the story of an author held captive by his selfproclaimed number one fan after a nearly fatal car accident. This is just a two-person cast, but the caliber of the performances and direction by Ken Martin made the production an engrossing and unrelentingly tense experience. Once again Russo, this time as author Paul Sheldon, gave a subtle, quiet, restrained and precisely timed performance. Janette Kondrat as his nurse/captor Annie Wilkes gave a surprising performance unlike anything she had done previously. The way she turned in a moment from sunny and nearly childlike to angry, spiteful and violent was deeply disturbing. The provocative musical “Spring Awakening” was another high point of the year that had the company bringing in a few professional actors. It is a testament to the level of talent of our local “amateurs” that the cast blended together seamlessly. The pros didn’t come down to a lesser level, everyone comes up to their level ability. Of

THEATER from page 14

Sullivan, overcomes her handicap in a time when no one thought it was possible. Limited by a clunky first act that is a flaw of the show rather than the production, director Barbara Spoffard and the actors found the heart and soul of this true story. Julie Lanoie was a solid Sullivan and found the delicate balance between self-assuredness and a fear of failure. The power of the scenes in the second act in which Lanoie worked one on one with Megan Perrin as Helen was undeniable. M&D Productions M&D Productions had a busy year with nine productions. The year’s strongest for M&D was “The Diary of Anne Frank,” an emotionally draining production that was a moving tribute to all those who died during the Holocaust. Under the direction of Dennis O’Neil, all the actors gave performances that nearly a year later still linger. Jessica Biggio was quite the revelation as Anne Frank. At 14, she showed skills well beyond her years and handled the role with grace and poise. Richard Russo as the patriarch of the family had a final monologue

those locals, the best of the cast was Molly Paven, who had strong vocal and acting range. A reliable talent throughout the season was Eric Jordan, a consummate scene stealer of the highest order. His work as the Scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz” was a highlight of that production. It was a wonderful physical performance that took its toll on the actor, but that was worth it. In “The Odd Couple: The Female Version” Jordan along with Doug Collomy, completely re-energize the second act as the hilarious Costazuela brothers. Jordan even showed off low-key romantic charm as the only male cast member of “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress.” Another constant throughout the year was set designer Deborah Jasien who consistently created astounding sets in the limited space at Your Theatre. In addition to her work for M&D, she did set designing for Arts in Motions’ “The Miracle Worker.” Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company The Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company returned for its 41st season of professional summer musical theater and put on five shows and added a sixth show, “Barefoot in the Park,” in the fall. “Barefoot in the Park,” a Neil Simon play, marked a departure for the company which has traditionally stuck with musical theater. Reallife couple Grant and Liz Golson, regulars with the Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company, returned for this special fall production to play newlyweds who have their love put to the test

when moving into a small New York apartment. Grant Golson proved himself to be an excellent physical comedian and Liz brought a bright smile and bubbly and likable personality. The Golsons had already proven their worth earlier in the season. Grant Golson had the title role in “Sweeney Todd,” the season’s best production. It is a darkly satiric, musically complex tragedy of revenge that isn’t easy to perform, but the ensemble pulls it off. Director Andrew Glant-Linden and set designer Daniel Thobias developed their own unique staging of the production. The show opens at an insane asylum with the inmates forming a chorus that sets up the show. As the show begins proper, the padded cell walls of the set are pushed and pulled to transform into 19th-century London and the inmates become the characters of the play. It was a fascinating choice that added a subtext that all of London was mad. At the center of the show was Grant Golson, who was in fine form vocally. Liz Golson had a memorable performance in “A Chorus Line,” a show with the simple plot of potential dancers auditioning for a director (the mostly disembodied voice of Grant Golson). She gets the show’s biggest laughs as Val, who on the bawdy “Dance Ten; Looks Three” explains how she got plastic surgery to make her body match her dance abilities. It is a hilarious number and Liz Golson brings it across exceptionally well. “A Chorus Line” is an ensemble show, though, and as such there were other highlights in the cast including Jack Haynie, who gave an exposed, vulnerable and moving monologue about his character growing up and struggling with his homosexuality and finding himself as a dancer in a drag show. The season also featured old favorites “Annie” and “Damn Yankees” that were well mounted and remained fun, but overly familiar. The bright and buoyant energy of the youthful “Hairspray” was a welcomed variation that provided breezy fun.

Kiwanis fundraiser benefits local children’s charities CONWAY — Conway Scenic Railroad marked the end of its 2011 Notch Train season Oct. 16 with a special fund-raising excursion. Hosted by the Mount Washington Valley Kiwanis Club, the “Autumn Express” raised more than $11,000 that will benefit local children's charities that are supported by the club. “We couldn't have had this event without the generous support of our sponsors,” said Jeff Bailey, chair of the Autumn Express committee. “This is the fourth year in a row that Conway Scenic has provided our event venue. A very big thank you to Russ Seybold and the staff at the railroad for all their marketing and operational support." He also thanked media sponsors and local businesses that helped with advertising the event, as well as Chef ’s Market for meal support; Bob and Nancy Marquis for photographic equipments; and Sandy Hall and the Kennett High Art Department for painting the sign on the photo arbor. Baily especially thanked the Kiwanis Autumn Express Committee members who donated many hours to the event, and Kennett Key Club members who enthusiastically ran about the train delivering souvenir photos and helping with raffle sales. Russ Seybold, President and General Manager of the Railroad, said, “We were pleased to provide our train for a fun-filled day that benefited this very worthy organization,” adding, “The weather cooperated beautifully, and the event was a great success.” For more information on the Mount Washington Valley Kiwanis Club, visit

Freedom Public Library offers winter film series New this year: Supper after the movie

semester. To be eligible for dean’s list, a student must carry a semester grade point average of 3.5 or better.

FREEDOM — This year's Winter Film Series at Freedom Public Library begins Sunday, Jan. 15 with "Hachi: A Dog's Tale" starring Richard Gere. The 2009 movie, based on a true story of a Japanese professor in the 1920s and the dog he adopted, follows the story of a college professor who finds an Akita puppy wandering about in a train station and takes him in. What follows is a story of an unusual bond between man and beast. The six films in the series will be shown every other Sunday at 4 p.m. through March. As always, admission is free and so is the popcorn. This year the films will be follwed by a simple supper of soup and bread for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The supper is free, though donations will be accepted. Other films in the series are: • Jan. 29: "The Hedgehog." This quiet French film stars a trio of unlikely characters. A precocious and articulate 11 year old planning her suicide on her 12th birthday, her elegant Japanese neighbor, and the grouchy concierge of the luxurious Paris apartment where they dwell all connect in ways that change them. This is a gentle and introspective movie. • Feb. 12: "Midnight in Paris." An ultra-romantic comedy by Woody Allen, this movie tells of Gil, a Hollywood screen writer (Owen Wilson) on vacation in Paris with his fiancée and her family, who is transported back in time to the Paris of the 1920s. Allen takes us through the glorious Paris of not one but three eras replete with enchanting characters of other times. • Feb. 26: "Submarine." Submarine is an amusing British coming-of-age story exploring the troubles of Oliver who, attempting to discover the ways of teenage love, at the same time has to deal with the marital problems of his parents. see FILMS page25

Ann McGarity

Lyceum presents Sunday concert series

Our area had a white Christmas with just enough snow to be a pretty backdrop against the lights and festivities. Like so many others we traveled out of state to be with family for Christmas. We set off on Friday and arrived in the New York area to stay with friends and from there went to visit Brian McGarity (who grew up in Tamworth in the 1980s) and his family, in Pearl River, N.Y. Everything was perfect and we attended a Christmas pageant and had a wonderful time with the family on Christmas Day. We were very glad to be safely home on Monday. If you received an e-reader or other similar item for Christmas, be sure to go on the Cook Memorial Library’s website at http//tamworth Library Director Jay Rancourt says if you have any trouble downloading to your device, bring it into the Cook Memorial Library and you will be helped. Jay also explains “Overdrive” and how you can download from it. Overdrive membership is paid for by the Friends of the Cook Memorial Library and is also supported by grant funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act administered by the New Hampshire State Library. The South Tamworth Post Office has received an official “proposal to close.” Postal officials will be at Union Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 24, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. to answer questions and provide information.

• Mar. 11: "Poetry." A beautiful 60-ish grandmother spends her days caring for an elderly gentleman paralyzed by a stroke and also is responsible for an ungrateful grandson. She moves through this somewhat uninteresting routine with humor and grace, and on a whim enrolls in a poetry class to help enrich her life and to help her put her feelings into the right words. Mija, the heroine of this South Korean film, finds her world turned upside down as she realizes she is in the beginning stages of Alzheimer’s disease. • Mar. 25: "The Way." The Way of St. James also known as El Camino de Santiago is a path in the Pyrenees Mountains travelled by pilgrims looking for greater meaning or spiritual fulfillment in their lives. In this film, Martin Sheen, an American doctor, comes to France to retrieve the body of his son (Emilio Estevez) who has died in a storm while walking this path. However, in his grief, and wanting to honor his son, Sheen decides to travel on the same 500 mile journey his son never completed.

By Holiday Mathis what you set out to accomplish. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Think ahead as much as possible. It will save you energy. Having to react to things in the spur of the moment will be more stressful than knowing what you’re going to do beforehand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s the perfect day to get away from the habits that usually serve you so well. Shaking things up reminds you of who you really are at the core. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Not only do you have the ability and desire to make something happen, but you have other intangible qualities that, when seen by the right people, will cause doors to fly open and opportunities to fly forth. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll rely on your own curious mix of charm and timing. You’ll enter circles and interact for just the amount of time it takes to make a connection. Then you’ll leave while the going is good. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can change what’s going on between people in your family just by choosing new reactions. Your loved ones will respond to you, especially when you are acting in unexpected ways. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 30). You’ll be part of a winning group this year. January brings a run of good luck that seems almost too easy, but the truth is that you’ve been working your whole life for it. You’ll embark on a mission in February. In March, celebrate your relationship with someone who shares your cherished values. Invest in June. Aquarius and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 44, 8, 32, 39 and 18.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll take the role of “guardian” quite seriously, and you’ll start by guarding your own time and monitoring your own behavior. You realize that you can’t change something if you can’t account for it in the first place. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your environment will make a difference in how you feel. Place pictures of your supporters and those you admire where you’ll see them often. The right images around you will help you to work hard and be successful. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Each person has their own unique emotional makeup, so feelings may be more or less mutual, but not exactly. You’ll connect in a way that feels right to you, and so will the other person. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know that you have the courage and the power to accomplish your goal. The question is: Do you have the stamina? Will you keep going even after it’s not as fun, glamorous or new? Today you prove that you will. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll see the first signs that someone is attracted to you, and you’ll enjoy the attention to the extent that it’s appropriate for your life. You’ll take everyone’s feelings into account. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It will be easier for you to achieve at the level of your high standards when those around you, especially your nearest and dearest, have high standards, as well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There will be many distractions, but ultimately, you control your focus. Be strong and centered on the mission. It’s all that matters. Do what is necessary to finish

Yesterday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Friday, December 30, 2011— Page 27

Today is Friday, Dec. 30, the 364th day of 2011. There is one day left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 30, 1936, the United Auto Workers union staged its first “sit-down” strike at the General Motors Fisher Body Plant No. 1 in Flint, Mich. (The strike lasted until Feb. 11, 1937.) On this date: In 1813, the British burned Buffalo, N.Y., during the War of 1812. In 1853, the United States and Mexico signed a treaty under which the U.S. agreed to buy some 45,000 square miles of land from Mexico for $10 million in a deal known as the Gadsden Purchase. In 1860, 10 days after South Carolina seceded from the Union, the state militia seized the United States Arsenal in Charleston. In 1903, about 600 people died when fire broke out at the recently opened Iroquois Theater in Chicago. In 1922, Vladimir I. Lenin proclaimed the establishment of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In 1940, California’s first freeway, the Arroyo Seco Parkway connecting Los Angeles and Pasadena, was officially opened by Gov. Culbert L. Olson. In 1948, the Cole Porter musical “Kiss Me, Kate” opened on Broadway. In 1965, Ferdinand Marcos was inaugurated for his first term as president of the Philippines. In 1972, the United States halted its heavy bombing of North Vietnam. In 1994, a gunman walked into a pair of suburban Boston abortion clinics and opened fire, killing two employees. (John C. Salvi III was later convicted of murder; he died in prison, an apparent suicide.) One year ago: Republican Lisa Murkowski was officially named winner of Alaska’s U.S. Senate race following a period of legal fights and limbo that had lasted longer than the write-in campaign she waged to keep her job. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Joseph Bologna is 77. Actor Russ Tamblyn is 77. Baseball Hall-of-Famer Sandy Koufax is 76. Actor Jack Riley is 76. Actor Fred Ward is 69. Singer-musician Michael Nesmith is 69. Singer Davy Jones is 66. Actress Concetta Tomei is 66. Singer Patti Smith is 65. Rock singer-musician Jeff Lynne is 64. TV host Meredith Vieira is 58. Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph is 56. Actress Patricia Kalember is 55. Country singer Suzy Bogguss is 55. “Today” show co-host Matt Lauer is 54. Actresscomedian Tracey Ullman is 52. Actor George Newbern is 48. Singer Jay Kay is 42. ctress Meredith Monroe is 42. Actor Daniel Sunjata is 40. Actress Maureen Flannigan is 39. Actor Jason Behr is 38. Golfer Tiger Woods is 36. Actress Eliza Dushku is 31. Rock musician Tim Lopez is 31. Actress Kristin Kreuk is 29.

Page 30 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Friday, December 30, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m a 25-year-old woman with no future. I am the youngest of three daughters. My parents are divorced and my sisters are both married. Mom has no income of her own, so it’s mainly me. I have come to realize that I’ll never be able to have an apartment of my own or fully live my life because of her. She’s controlling and always finds a way to make me feel guilty about going out or enjoying myself. I have never had a relationship because she has always found a way of sabotaging any relationship I’m in. I think she’s bipolar, but she doesn’t believe in medication or that it’s even real. I feel as if I’m being forced to take care of her, and when I finally have a chance to have a real life, it will be too late. I have discussed this with my sisters, but they haven’t helped. I’m very depressed and don’t know what to do. If I bring this up with Mom, she gets angry and won’t talk to me for days. Please help me find a way out. -- TRAPPED IN CHICAGO DEAR TRAPPED: Your umbilical cord was supposed to have been severed 25 years ago, at birth. You are an adult individual who deserves happiness and freedom from this attachment to your mother. She may not believe in doctors and therapists -- and that’s her privilege as long as she’s not a danger to herself and others. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t talk with a mental health professional about this unhealthy situation. Your sisters haven’t helped you because they have their freedom and don’t want to share the responsibility you have been carrying alone. And your mother doesn’t want to let go of you because if she does, she’ll have to assume responsibil-

ity for herself. Please act now. Your escape hatch is the door to a therapist’s office. You deserve a life, so go there and get one. DEAR ABBY: I recently found out that my boyfriend of three years -- the only man I have ever been with -- cheated on me with a woman I thought was a good friend. I love him and have decided to take him back and fight for what we had. He assured me that he wants to be only with me, that what he did was “stupid” and he has learned his lesson. Abby, although I have forgiven him, I can’t bring myself to forgive HER. I have never been someone who holds a grudge, but I have so much hate for her that it scares me. I did get professional help, but it didn’t work. I don’t want to be like this. This is not who I am. I’m worried about how I might react when I see her. I can’t avoid her since we work in the same industry. Why can I forgive him but not her? -- MOVING FORWARD IN TEXAS DEAR MOVING FORWARD: Probably because having invested three years in the “only man you have ever been with,” you don’t want it to have been for nothing -- so you’re directing the anger you still feel toward HIM at the woman you would like to imagine seduced him. (Remember, it takes two to tango.) Also, you may still regard her as a threat. While you may have forgiven your boyfriend, do not forget what happened. A man who cheats and blames it on “stupidity” may do it again with someone else. You need to understand why he did what he did. Is he someone who lives only in the moment? Did he not consider how it would affect you? Is he capable of fidelity in the long run? From my perspective, you need answers to these questions because you may only now be getting to know who he really is.

Ice Cats fall to Hawks

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy-Lake Region Ice Cats traveled to Dover, New Hampshire, recently to battle a strong Marshwood club. The local skaters put up a game effort but ended up on the short end of a 5-1 scoreline. Coach John Moran described their opponent, “This was our toughest game of the year so far. They may be the best team we will play.” Moran went on to describe the Hawks in more detail, “The game was played at a slower pace than we expected. They are a much more physical team than we have faced this year.” Marshwood opened the scoring just over five minutes into the game, and the period ended 1-0. Goalie Tyler Legoff had a strong first period and played an effective game. Legoff stopped 36 out of the 41 shots he faced. Moran appreciated the goalie’s performance, “Tyler stepped up against Marshwood.” The Hawks broke through in the second period and took control of the game when they scored three straight goals to build a 4-0 lead before the Cats got on the scoreboard. T. J. Leach stopped the Ice Cats’ slide when he scored from his defenseman position to make it 4-1 with just 1:54 left in the period. Moran felt that the Hawks strong skating played a vital role when they took their four goal lead in the second period. “Marshwood really had their cycling down. This was really important. They were constantly making short quick passes while they cycled. They started sucking our defensemen out to make plays on them rather than stay in position. We should have just let them cycle. Tyler was going to make the stop if we stayed in position.” Although the Ice Cats showed some inexperience by chasing the Hawks until they were out of position defensively, they showed that they learned their lesson regarding being sent to the penalty box. Moran stated, “We took fewer penalties. The referees let the kids play. They didn’t call every little push and shove.” Marshwood tacked on one more goal in the third period for the 5-1 final. — Charlie Tryder
