Santa Claus hands out candy to children during the Christmas tree lighting in Conway Village Saturday night. A crowd of about 60 people turned out to watch Santa’s magic and have some cookies and hot chocolate. It appeared last week that the tree lighting might have to be canceled, but businesses, individuals and local leaders pulled together to purchase new lights and keep the tradition going.(JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO)

Chicken chain, shirt maker dispute slogan (NY Times) — For Bo Muller-Moore, a folk artist from Vermont, the T-shirts he hand-screens with the slogan “Eat More Kale” are a dream fulfilled. But then Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain that says it sells 537 sandwiches a minute with the help of the slogan “Eat mor chikin” (the words have been penned by cows), sent him a ceaseand-desist letter this fall. Muller-Moore decided to fight the company, setting off a groundswell of local support and national media attention. “This is corporate bullying,” Muller-Moore said. His lawyer, Daniel Richardson, sent Chick-fil-A a letter in November, contesting its claim that the slogan “is likely to cause confusion of the public and dilutes the distinctiveness of Chick-fil-A’s intellectual property.” Chick-fil-A does not have any stores in Vermont. The closest one is in Nashua, about 120 miles from Montpelier, where Muller-Moore, an Alabama native, has lived for years. He began making the shirts in 2000, at the suggestion of a local farmer. The few dozen printed at first have swollen into thousands of orders filled every year, he said, but he still works out of the overflowing studio above his garage, buying his art supplies nearby.

Attacks on shiites kill scores in Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan (NY Times) — A Pakistan-based extremist group claimed responsibility for a series of coordinated attacks aimed at Afghan Shiites on Tuesday, in what many feared was an attempt to further destabilize Afghanistan by adding a new dimension of strife to a country that, though battered by a decade of war, has been free of sectarian conflict. The attacks, among the war’s deadliest,

struck Kabul, Kandahar and Mazar-iSharif almost simultaneously and killed at least 63 Shiite worshipers on Ashura, which marks the death of Shiite Islam’s holiest martyr. Targeted strikes by Sunnis against Shiites are alien to Afghanistan. It was no surprise to Afghans when responsibility was claimed by a Sunni extremist group from Pakistan, where Sunnis and Shiites have been killing one another for decades.

Obama strikes populist chord in new speech OSAWATOMIE, Kan. (NY Times) — Venturing into the conservative heartland, President Obama on Tuesday delivered his most pointed appeal yet for using taxes and regulations to level the economic playing field. “This country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, and when everyone plays by the same rules, ” he told a crowd packed into a school gymnasium. Infusing his speech with the type of populist language that has

emerged in the Occupy protests around the nation, Mr. Obama warned that growing income inequality meant that the United States was undermining its middle class. He said it “gives lie to the promise that’s at the very heart of America: that this is the place where you can make it if you try.” “This is a make or break moment for the middle class, and all those who are fighting to get into the middle class,” Obama said as he sought to make an economic case for his re-election next year.

The group, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, had not previously claimed or carried out attacks in Afghanistan, however, and its emergence fueled suspicions that Al Qaeda, the Taliban or Pakistan’s spy agency — or some combination of the those three — had teamed up with the group to send the message that Afghanistan’s future stability remained deeply tenuous and indeed dependent on the cooperation of outside forces.

Moscow moves to quell 2nd day of anti-Putin protests

MOSCOW (NY Times) — Russian authorities acted decisively to quash a second day of anti-government protests on Tuesday, flooding the appointed site with throngs of pro-government activists who banged on drums to drown out the chants of “Russia without Putin” and “Down with Putin.” Several hundred opposition protesters convened in a central square, hoping to maintain the momentum created on Monday, when as many as 5,000 protested over reports of alleged fraud in parliamentary elections. The crowd that formed Tuesday, however, was rapidly choked off by lines of riot police, who dragged many protesters onto buses. Police officials told the Interfax news service that 250 people had been detained, slightly fewer than the 300 who were detained Monday. Authorities also made an example of two of the leaders of the Monday protest — the blogger and anticorruption crusader, Aleksei Navalny, and a liberal activist, Ilya Yashin. Both men were sentenced to 15 days in prison for disobeying police orders.

Toys For Tots in dire straits Slashed funding for heat aid means fewer families qualify

MANCHESTER — Toys for Tots is in desperate need of donations as the deadline to distribute Christmas toys to needy children draws closer. Toys for Tots officials said they are running at only about 10 percent of projected requests for donations with the greatest need for newborn and teenagee boys and all age groups for girls. So far, Toys for Tots has only taken in about 12,000 toys for the 45,000 children who have requested help through the program this year. Officials expected they would need to gather 100,000 toys to meet demand this year. On Wednesday, New Hampshire

Catholic Charities will request 12,000 toys from Toys for Tots to fulfill their requests. Toys for Tots is the largest contributor of toys to NHCC, which services member agencies throughout the state with toys. They said this year the demand is greater than ever with NHCC. The Manchester chapter is fielded 500 phone calls a day in the last week with people looking for assistance with toys for their children. There are more than 400 drop sites around the state where you can donate to Toys for Tots. —Courtesy of WMUR

N.H. responds to report that blasted mental health system CONCORD — The attorney general and Department of Health and Human Services commissioner are disputing the United States Department of Justice’s claim that the state’s mental health system is failing and violates federal law. In April, the Department of Justice concluded that the state was failing to provide adequate community-based services to those with mental illness, leading to prolonged stays at New Hampshire Hospital, the state mental hospital and Glencliff Home. The report said Glencliff Home, the state’s home for those with serious mental illness or developmental disabilities, put little focus on discharge planning. The report acknowledged the state’s 10-year plan to fix the system which was developed in 2008 but said progress had been slow.

Attorney General Michael Delaney and health commissioner Nicholas Toumpas released a response Tuesday after six months of discussions with the Department of Justice. The response claims the Department of Justice only spent two days in New Hampshire assessing the state’s mental health system, including a one-day visit to the Glencliff Home and a partial day visit to New Hampshire Hospital. Delaney and Toumpas said Tuesday that significant progress had been made in the 10-year plan. Toumpas also argued that New Hampshire Hospital has a significantly lower-than-average stay compared to the rest of the nation. They are asking the department of justice withdraw its findings. —Courtesy of WMUR

Three years show failure of hope, change To the editor: A sure fire way to make environmentalists flip their lids is to mention how relatively safe nuclear power is. In spite of Chernobyl, Fukushima and the Three Mile Island nuclear mishaps, far fewer people have been injured by nuclear power generation when compared to the other forms of energy production. Critics of the Republican U.S. House of Representatives fail to recall that it was a Democrat-controlled House and Senate which presided on the doubling of the federal deficit since 2009 and also want people to believe it is caused by 1) defense spending and 2) entitlement programs. Nonsense, since at the end of Bush’s second term the annual deficit was $185 billion but at the end of Obama’s first year in office it had sky rocketed to over a trillion dollars. This was after Obamacare, massive bank and auto bailouts, and a trillion dollar stimulus that never worked, were all instituted. The Occupy Wall Street crowd complains of no jobs yet the thousands of illegal immigrants streaming across the border from Mexico don’t appear to have any difficulty finding work. Why aren’t Democrat candidates for president ever subjected to the same level of scrutiny the press affords Republican candidates? American colleges and universities are seldom criticized for raising the cost of tuition but practically all

other American businesses are vilified when they have to raise prices. Susan Bruce recently excoriated the N.H. Legislature for being the laughing stock of the nation yet praised the same body in 2006 when “the will of the people” were heard and that body became dominated by the Democrats. Who’s laughing at whom now? Despite government’s spending literally trillions on anti-poverty programs the number of people in poverty has actually increased in the years between 1959 and 2009 (Source: U.S. Census Bureau). Related to poverty, the Agriculture Department claims 3.5 million children under the age of 5 are at risk of hunger in the United States. This is hard to believe when we’re bombarded almost daily about the childhood obesity epidemic. Where in the Constitution does it say the government is responsible for providing free food and housing to citizens? People wanting to live in a socialist paradise should consider moving to Venezuela. If you bought in to the “Hope and Change” of Barack Obama in 2008 believing that massive government intervention in the private sector was the way to fix the economy then over three years of failure after failure of government intervention programs should convince you otherwise in 2012.

A Silicon Valley School That Doesn’t Compute

LOS ALTOS, Calif. (NY TIMES) — The chief technology officer of eBay sends his children to a nine-classroom school here. So do employees of Silicon Valley giants like Google, Apple, Yahoo and Hewlett-Packard. But the school’s chief teaching tools are anything but high-tech: pens and paper, knitting needles and, occasionally, mud. Not a computer to be found. No screens at all. They are not allowed in the classroom, and the school even frowns on their use at home. Schools nationwide have rushed to supply their classrooms with computers, and many policy makers say it is foolish to do otherwise. But the contrarian point of view can be found at the epicenter of the tech economy, where some parents and educators have a message: computers and schools don’t mix. This is the Waldorf School of the Peninsula, one of around 160 Waldorf schools in the country that subscribe to a teaching philosophy focused on physical activity and learning through creative, hands-on tasks. Those who endorse this approach say computers inhibit creative thinking, movement, human interaction and attention spans. The Waldorf method is nearly a century old, but its foothold here among the digerati puts into sharp relief an intensifying debate about the role of computers in education. “I fundamentally reject the notion you need technology aids in grammar school,” said Alan Eagle, 50, whose daughter, Andie, is one of the 196 children at the Waldorf elementary school; his son William, 13, is at the nearby middle school. “The idea that an app on an iPad can better teach my kids to read or do arithmetic, that’s ridiculous.” Mr. Eagle knows a bit about technology. He holds a computer science degree from Dartmouth and works in executive communications at Google, where he has written speeches for the chairman, Eric E. Schmidt. He uses an iPad and a smartphone. But he says his daughter, a fifth grader, “doesn’t know how to use Google,” and his son is just learning. (Starting in eighth grade, the school endorses the limited use of gadgets.) Three-quarters of the students here have parents with a strong high-tech connection. Mr. Eagle, like other parents, sees no contradiction. Technology, he says, has its time and place. While other schools in the region brag about their wired classrooms, the Waldorf school embraces a simple, retro look — blackboards with colorful chalk, bookshelves with encyclopedias, wooden desks filled with workbooks and No. 2 pencils. On a recent Tuesday, Andie Eagle and her fifth-grade classmates refreshed their knitting skills, crisscrossing wooden needles around balls of yarn, making fabric swatches. It’s an activity the school says helps develop problemsolving, patterning, math skills and coordination. The long-term goal: make socks. Down the hall, a teacher drilled thirdgraders on multiplication by asking them to pretend to turn their bodies into lightning bolts. She asked them a math problem — four times five — and, in unison, they shouted “20” and

zapped their fingers at the number on the blackboard. A roomful of human calculators. In second grade, students standing in a circle learned language skills by repeating verses after the teacher, while simultaneously playing catch with bean bags. It’s an exercise aimed at synchronizing body and brain. Andie’s teacher, Cathy Waheed, who is a former computer engineer, tries to make learning both irresistible and highly tactile. Last year she taught fractions by having the children cut up food — apples, quesadillas, cake — into quarters, halves and sixteenths. “For three weeks, we ate our way through fractions,” she said. “When I made enough fractional pieces of cake to feed everyone, do you think I had their attention?” Is learning through cake fractions and knitting any better? The Waldorf advocates make it tough to compare, partly because as private schools they administer no standardized tests in elementary grades. And they would be the first to admit that their early-grade students may not score well on such tests because, they say, they don’t drill them on a standardized math and reading curriculum. When asked for evidence of the schools’ effectiveness, the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America points to research by an affiliated group showing that 94 percent of students graduating from Waldorf high schools in the United States between 1994 and 2004 attended college, with many heading to prestigious institutions like Oberlin, Berkeley and Vassar. Of course, that figure may not be surprising, given that these are students from families that value education highly enough to seek out a selective private school, and usually have the means to pay for it. Absent clear evidence, the debate comes down to subjectivity, parental choice and a difference of opinion over a single world: engagement. Advocates for equipping schools with technology say computers can hold students’ attention and, in fact, that young people who have been weaned on electronic devices will not tune in without them. Paul Thomas, a former teacher and an associate professor of education at Furman University, who has written 12 books about public educational methods, disagreed, saying that “a spare approach to technology in the classroom will always benefit learning.” “Teaching is a human experience,” he said. “Technology is a distraction when we need literacy, numeracy and critical thinking.” Finn Heilig, 10, whose father works at Google, says he liked learning with pen and paper — rather than on a computer — because he could monitor his progress over the years. “You can look back and see how sloppy your handwriting was in first grade. You can’t do that with computers ’cause all the letters are the same,” Finn said. “Besides, if you learn to write on paper, you can still write if water spills on the computer or the power goes out.” Matt Richel is a writer for the New York Times.

HOBSON from page one

Hobson, who allegedly stole a Toyota Highlander, is believed to be in southern Maine, said District of Maine U.S. Marshal Noel March on Tuesday afternoon. The reward has been increased from $500 to $1,000. "His cat-and-mouse game has created an awful lot of stress for his family, a lot of expense for the taxpayers and anxiety for many in southern Maine," said March. The U.S. Marshal expressed optimism that Hobson will be caught. "David Hobson is not Harry Houdini. He's not Whitey Bulger," said March. However, March also said this case is getting a lot of attention in the media. Hobson hasn't hurt anybody so far, said March on Tuesday afternoon. However, it's believed that the motive behind Hobson's escape was to harm two people in Maine. Those people have been notified and are in a safe location. Documents at Carroll County Superior Court show that Hobson has been indicted four times on burglary charges in Carroll County.

Two indictments are for alleged burglaries in Sandwich and the other indictments are for alleged burglaries in Wakefield and <span>Effingham. Hobson had a plea and sentencing hearing scheduled for Dec. 19 on a couple of the indictments. On Friday night, Maine State Police arrested Hobson's father, Glenn Hobson, 55, of Alfred, Maine, and charged him with hindering apprehension for allegedly leaving out supplies for his son. Police also charged Glenn Hobson with refusing to submit to arrest. Troopers allegedly found medical supplies, food, water, clothing and blankets that had been left outside for David Hobson. The rest of the Hobson family has been cooperative, said March. The stolen Highlander was recovered around 6 p.m. on Saturday in a "wooded side road" off of Wichers Mills Road near the town line between Alfred and Sanford. On Monday morning, Maine State Police searched two houses, belonging to relatives of Hobson, on the New Dam Road in Sanford. The U.S. Marshal's Service in Maine can be reached at (207) 780-3355.

BUDGET from page one

Conway School Board during a special meeting Monday in the Professional Development Center at Kennett Middle School. The meeting attracted 10 citizens. The total proposed operating budget excluding special articles is $30,899,677. Last year's adopted budget was $31,556,733. Conway's share of that price tag is $15 million with the sending towns (Albany, Bartlett, Eaton, Freedom, Jackson, Madison and Tamworth) picking up the rest of the

tab. The school board is anticipating over 20 warrant articles, totaling over $1.1 million that are not part of the presented budget. The estimated tax rate, excluding separate special articles, is $10.98 per $1,000 of property valuation, representing a decrease of 26 cents per $1,000 of property valuation from the previous year. Nelson projected if all of the warrant articles were to be voter approved it would represent an overall tax increase of 50 cents per $1,000 of property valuation, raising the tax rate to $11.74 per $1,000 of property valuation or a 4.4 percent increase. Under the budget, Nelson explained the reduction comes despite a 5,8 percent jump in health insurance along with an increase in the contribution amount to the state retirement system and a rise in heating oil and electricity. Special education is down $342,505 (5.58 percent); the Kennett Middle School budget is down $168,427 (5.07 percent); there is an increase of $195,179 (2.76 percent) at Kennett High School; Conway Elementary School is up $89,473 (4.8 percent); John Fuller Elementary School is up $72,436 (3.76 percent); Pine Tree Elementary is up $64,230 (3.39 percent); district-wide technology is up $14,420 (2.72 percent); and Career and Technical education is up $6,178 (.73 percent). The increases were due primarily to health and salary benefits. One area of increased revenue comes in the form of sending town high school tuition, which saw an increase of over $411,000, which comes of the heels of the 2011-12 budget that was up over $700,000. Nelson said as part of the 20-year school contract, sending towns are paying a 2.5 percent inflation cost on each student sent to Kennett High along with an additional 3.6 percent cost-of-living allowance charge per student. The 6 percent in taxes brings Jackson's per-pupil cost to send a child to Kennett High up to over $32,000 a year. The school board hopes to vote on the budget next week.

CONWAY — Darien Vaughan saw one of his dreams come true last week. The Kennett High senior has 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. Vaughan met with officials from Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, Sen. Kelly Ayotte and Rep. Frank Guinta's office. He was the first Granite Stater to be nominated by Guinta and received his official nomination note in the mail last week. “Each year, I have the distinct honor of nominating see WEST POINT page 10

young Granite Staters for admission to the U.S. service academies," Guinta said Wednesday. "Those important institutions teach many future American leaders the skills that will help guide us into the 21st century. I’m delighted these students will get the opportunity to serve our country and learn the leadership and responsibility needed to excel in the military. I’m proud to be a part of this important process and wish these outstanding students the very best in their coming studies and in the years ahead.” Upon graduation from West Point,

Vaughan will be commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army and obligated to serve his country for five years. Vaughan, 18, the son of Michele and Robert Vaughan, of Madison, received his official appointment on Friday and posted the following to his Facebook page: "On behalf of the president of the United States of America, the admissions committee of the United States Military Academy takes great pleasure in announcing an appointment to Darien Bernard Vaughan Class of 2016." see next page

He received 55 likes from his friends and numerous flattering comments. His parents are very proud of his accomplishment. “This entire process has been driven by Darien, and Darien alone,” said Robert, a Merchant Marine. “All my family and I can do is stand in awe of his decision – he’s made a profound commitment and it’s our obligation, not only as parents, but as part of a community of free citizens, to wholly support his extraordinary motivation and personal conviction about Duty, Honor, Country – the motto of West Point. We eagerly look forward to watching our son’s future develop.” Vaughan said he's honored to get the opportunity to serve his country. "I've wanted to be in the Army for while," he said by phone Friday. "I want to serve my country and if it hadn't been West Point I would have probably going the ROTC route." Getting accepted to the United States Military Academy at West Point in Hudson, N.Y., is no easy task. "The whole process started last December when I opened up an application for the summer program (at West Point)," Vaughan said. "I got accepted to the summer program (and spent a week there). I loved the campus, it's so rich in history and it's beautiful." "The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation," the West Point website states. "Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. service academies and serving our country.

The following is needed to complete an application for nomination consideration: a current photo; high school and/or college transcripts (after final grades posted for junior year); SAT/ACT scores; the application; a resume of extracurricular activities; a completed questionnaire; your autobiography which is two typewritten pages long; and three letters of recommendation. "After determining that you meet the basic requirements to become a cadet, you should begin seeking nominations. In order to be considered for admission at West Point, you need to be nominated," the West Point website states. "There are two types of nominations, the Congressional Nomination and the Service-Connected Nomination." Congressional nominations can come from the vice president; U.S. senators, U.S. representatives; delegates to the House of Representatives from Washington, D.C., Guam and the Virgin Islands; the governors of American Samoa and Puerto Rico; the resident commissioner of Puerto Rico; the resident commissioner of the Northern Mariana Islands; and the Secretary of the Army. Mark Powell, from Guinta's office, said Wednesday the Congressman received 10 applications for appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy; eight to West Point; seven to the U.S. Air Force Academy; and three to the Merchant Marines. Congress does not do appointments the U.S. Coast Guard. "Every congressman and senator does it their own way, but we can nominate up to 10 candidates per academy," Powell said. Vaughan, who is currently in the top five of his

class at Kennett High, plays three sports for the Eagles. He was a co-captain of the football team and is a member of the indoor winter track team and the outdoor spring track team. "I talked to the football coach and even I agree I'm kind of on the small side (225 pounds)," Vaughan said, laughing. "I saw the football players when I was there and they're pretty big. Every (cadet) has to play some sort of sport at West Point and my dad played rugby so I think I'll try that." Vaughan is also an active member of Key Club and has earned the distinction of membership in the National Society of High School Scholars. He is president of both the the Kennett Keys Chapter of the National Honor Society and the German National Honor Society. Vaughan, who has a passion for foreign language, may continue down that path in terms of a major at West Point. "We don't pick our major until our junior year," Vaughan said. "I'm not quite sure what I'll major in, but as of now I'm probably leaning towards foreign languages." With room, board and tuition paid for by the Army, an appointment to West Point represents the equivalent of receiving a scholarship of nearly $400,000. West Point consistently ranks among the top five colleges in the nation. Vaughan will report to West Point on June 25 where he will begin active duty on day one as a corporal. Upon completing his course of study at West Point, he will receive a bachelor of science degree and a commission as second lieutenant in the United States Army.

Town has 'no choice' but to enforce compliance in floodplain BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — When the zoning board denied variances to the first batch of property violations exposed by Tropical Storm Irene two weeks ago, the town took another step toward bringing Transvale Acres into compliance. The town’s message was clear: There will be no permits issued for illegal structures in the floodplain. The news provoked whispers about lawsuits from the audience. But while Transvale Acres is under the microscope in the wake of the storm, for most of the rest of Conway there is limited value to getting a building permit before a construction project. “The big disincentive is if you don’t do it properly you may have to remove it,” said Dave Pandora, the town’s building inspector. “We catch people maybe a couple of times a month.”

“Typically if that situation came up we would ask them to come in and apply for a building permit,” said town manager Earl Sires. The town has the authority to assess a penalty, but “I don’t believe we’ve issued any fines.” “The philosophy has been to work with people to get them into compliance,” Sires said, which works in property owners’ favor. The permit fee is “peanuts” compared to fines, he said. Pandora echoed Sires. “Our job here is to work with the public,” he said. “If we can help them we do, but in the floodplain we don’t have any choice.” That distinction — floodplain — is what town officials blame for transforming their otherwise favorable permit policy into what many Transvale Acres residents have come to see as draconian regulation. “We are obligated to comply with our floodplain ordinance,” Sires said, which doesn’t allow new construction in the floodplain. And “new construction” doesn’t just apply to construc-

tion projects proposed in 2011. It applies to any construction after 1979 when the town adopted the ordinance. Observation of floodplain regulations is serious business, according to town planning director Tom Irving, because if federal officials see “a pattern of granting variances” they could decide to take a closer look at the town. “They might find issue with the granting of those variances,” Irving said, which could result in the town losing its eligibility for the federally subsidized National Flood Insurance Program. If that happens, Sires said, “There will be an economic impact to other residents.” Flood insurance can be quite costly, Irving said, but it is crucial for obtaining a mortgage for a property in the floodplain. If the town loses its eligibility for the federally subsidized program, individual homeowners may have to buy more expensive private insurance, or they may not be able to get insurance at all. That might in turn make it hard for property owners to sell their property, hurting their property value and that of surrounding properties. There are a lot of “mights” and “could” in that scenario, Irving said, but exclusion from the federal program is a distinct possibility that would have serious impact far beyond any single property owner. “Being disqualified from the program would certainly be a public injustice," he said. But the property owners that came before the zoning board last week were seeing their own private injustices, with far fewer “mights.” The town expects people who are found to have illegal structures to remove them. If they don’t, Sires said, they could face fines of $275 a day. Property owners will have the opportunity to appeal the town’s ruling through both the zoning board and the courts, he said, but “when the clock runs out they will be subject to court action.” Ultimately, he said, the town may have to take over some of the properties to ensure they adhere to the rules, but it isn’t a simple proceedure. “There’s a lot of regulatory requirements,” Sires said, “lots of notice, lots of back and forth.” The law provides see next page

a way for municipalities to do it, he said, but “This could take years.” Even the threat of such action, however, has property owners frustrated. Some of them own structures that have been around for more than a decade, and others bought properties they were told were grandfathered and legal. And for decades no one from the town’s planning department came around to contradict that information. “We don’t do aggressive building inspection,” Sires said, so many instances of illegal construction went unnoticed in Transvale. “We don’t have the manpower to sit and look at every piece of property,” Pandora said. If this type of illegal development was happening on West Side Road, he said, neighbors would have called the town to report it, but that didn’t happen at Transvale. What’s more, the town doesn’t have the right to do inspections of residential properties. When someone calls about a building permit for a residential unit, Pandora said, he will go and look at the property “for zoning reasons only.” Conway does far less residential property regulation than most other communities, according to Sires. “What our building permit really amounts to is an assessing record,” he said. “We do on occasion check setbacks, but that’s all we do.” The town assessing office, meanwhile, did have a record of many of the illegal buildings that went up around the Transvale. That had property owners wondering how the town can claim it didn’t know about all the illegal construction. The answer offered by town officials: The two departments don’t cross reference each other’s files. But now that the scope of the construction is clear, the town is paying close attention to what happens in the floodplain, particularly in Transvale. “The context there is completely different,” Sires said. It has more violations than other neighborhood, with between 90 and 100 properties in violation. It’s not clear under the current rules, however, that this effort will be enough to fully address illegal construction, in the floodplain or otherwise. “Until the town decides to take on residential inspections it’s going to be a problem,” Pandora said.

Insuring your volunteer workforce BY DAVE MASON Volunteers are the lifeblood of hundreds of organizations, and most could not accomplish their missions without them. However, just like paid employees, volunteers can have accidents that injure themselves or others or that damage property. A woman making deliveries for Meals On Wheels is involved in a car accident. A Little League coach is hit by a batted ball. A man helping to build a house for Habitat For Humanity discards what he thinks is an extinguished cigarette and starts a fire. Because each of these individuals was volunteering for charitable organizations at the time of their accidents, the question arises as to insurance coverage for the organization and the volunteer. For the injured volunteer, the organization’s workers' compensation policy may be modified to provide coverage as though they are employees. Of course, modifications have to be made before an injury occurs. While an organization may want to provide protection for volunteers, no insurer is obligated to provide this modification, so obtaining coverage may be a challenge. Typically, the organization’s general liability policy will contain some “medical payments” coverage that will be available to provide for expenses arising from injury to a volunteer. There is an upper limit to this coverage, usually $5,000 to $10,000, and it is not as comprehensive as workers' compensation benefits. For injury to others or damage to their property, the organization’s commercial general liability insurance typically covers both the organization and volunteers for liability arising from injury and property damage to others. More recent forms of the standard liability policy automatically include volunteers as insureds. Older forms and some non-standard forms may not and will require modification to afford coverage to volunteers. If modification is required it should be easy to achieve. Injury or damage arising from an auto accident is another story. While a volunteer, if injured, would have coverage for expenses of the injury if the workers' compensation modification mentioned above were in place, there would be no coverage available under commercial general liability or “medical payments." This is because, in the insurance world, automobile situations are intended to be covered by auto insurance and the other policies exclude auto related injuries and damage from coverage. If the organization has an auto insurance policy it may provide coverage for the organization for injury or damage arising from a volunteer’s accident with the volunteer's vehicle but such coverage is not automatic and it’s a good idea to verify it’s there. If the coverage is not present, the policy may be easily modified to provide it. An auto policy may also be modified to provide extended coverage to the volunteer when they are operating their auto for the organization. Volunteers may have their own insurance coverage that will respond to injury or damage to others when they are volunteering for the organization. Homeowner policies and personal auto policies will provide coverage if the volunteer is not being compensated for their volunteer activities. The problems that may arise for the volunsee INSURANCE page 19

Conway Pines groundbreaking 'a great start' in local affordable housing effort BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — “This marks an exciting day for us, a great start,” said Theresa Kennett, program director of the non-profit Mount Washington Valley Housing Coalition, following the groundbreaking ceremony held Nov. 28 for the new Conway Pines affordable rental housing project. Located on Poliquin Drive, off Route 16 across from the Shurfine Marketplace in Conway, the new facility will consist of 32 workforce housing units. The three-story building will include 23 two-bedroom apartments, six one-bedroom apartments and

three three-bedroom apartments, with a planned opening by late August. It will feature a playground and off-street parking, with the site screened from Route 16 by trees. Laundry facilities and common areas are also part of the design. As a “green” project, the building will feature photovoltaic solar and geothermal. Affordable — and adjustable — rates The facility will offer rental prices set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development see CONWAY PINES page 18

Business confidence expected to hold steady in 2012 CONCORD — Data from the recently completed 2012 New Hampshire Business Outlook Survey shows that business owners are cautious but optimistic about the economy in 2012, expecting the relatively slow growth rate to continue while not expecting conditions to worsen in the coming year. However, they expect current employment levels to remain the same. Sponsored by the Business and Industry Associa-

tion of New Hampshire and Portsmouth-based RKM Research and Communications, the eighth annual business outlook survey measured business confidence among a stratified random sample of 300 New Hampshire businesses. RKM polled 100 businesses with less than 10 employees and 200 with 10 or more employees, Oct. 20–28. see SURVEY page 16

Margarita Grill, right past the junction of routes 302 and 16 in Glen, is giving you an easy opportunity to do that this year. The owners of Margarita Grill are taking Christmas to heart and celebrating with an artisan fair at their restaurant on Dec. 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. They will be featuring artisans who make one-of-a-kind gifts, a wine and mead tasting with Crush Wines and Sap House Meadery and samples from their new, organic menu. Keeping matters of the heart a forefront, a portion of the evening’s proceeds go to benefit the Angels and Elves program. Although a big reason, Christmas is not the only reason the folks at Margarita Grill have to be merry. They are also pairing the evening’s festivities with a ribbon cutting to celebrate their newest achievement, Environmental Champion, presented to them by the N.H. Sustainable Dining and Lodging Program. Margarita Grill is the only restaurant in the valley who has achieved this award, and the owners and staff are very proud of it. Their menu features organic and all-natural meals using as many local, “farm-to-table” ingredients as possible. There is a lot going on during the holiday season and a lot of places to be. Make sure that Margarita Grill is one of them. Pencil in Margarita Grill and the artisan fair in your calendar. Enjoy a glass of wine, a fresh and organic meal and take care of your Christmas shopping knowing that you not only supported local economy, but a great charity as well. *** Adventure Suites welcomes great crowd around new fire pit Adventure Suites sure knows how to throw a party! With everything that is already offered at the theme hotel, including spending a night in a real igloo or a room where you can park your motorcycle, the owners decided to take it a step further with their take on a fire pit. On Monday, Nov. 21, they welcomed people to come and enjoy their crackling fire-pit. Margarita Grill was there serving homemade chili with cornbread, chips and salsa and a hot cheese dip, and Tuckerman Brewing Company was serving its beer. Audley Williams played acoustic guitar as everyone enjoyed the heat from the fire and watched a light show that was playing as well. The stone benches surrounding the fire are even equipped with hidden rock-like speakers allowing for music to be amplified or even TVs to be plugged in, weather permitting. The fire pit is a great addition to Adventure Suites. It allows guests to enjoy the beautiful scenic views while keeping guests warm, allowing them to make S’mores and setting the scene for a cozy and charming vacation.

increase, 73 percent expected it to stay the same and 4 percent expected it to decrease. Forty-three (43) percent of businesses expect their annual revenue to increase in 2012, as compared to 48 percent in 2011. In 2012, 32 percent expect revenue to stay the same and 19 percent expect it to decrease. Last year, 27 percent expected revenue to stay the same and 18 percent expected it to decrease. Twenty-six (26) percent of businesses expect their capital expenditures to increase in 2012, 60 percent expect them to remain unchanged and 14 percent expect to spend less on capital investments. Last year, 30 percent of businesses expected capital expenditures to increase, 57 percent expected them to stay the same and 9 percent expected to spend less on capital investments. Survey respondents were also asked to identify top concerns facing their business in the coming year. Poor economic conditions again topped the list with 47 percent of business owners citing it as their top challenge for 2012. Eleven (11) percent of respondents identified the lack of demand for products and services as the second-ranked business challenge, followed by high cost of energy as number three (9 percent of respondents) and high cost of health insurance as number four (8 percent of respondents). When asked specifically about whether certain issues were major concerns, 61 percent of business owners said the cost of health care and health insurance was a major concern; 58 percent consider the cost of energy a major concern; and 39 percent consider New Hampshire’s business taxes a major concern. According to Jim Roche, president of the Business and Industry Association, the survey results portray an uncertain environment for most businesses. “Although business owners don’t expect the economy to worsen and may see increased revenues in 2012, they don’t anticipate adding jobs or investing in their businesses. Those activities are crucial to spurring economic growth.”

CONWAY PINES from page 14

at less than the median income wage level for the valley, according to developers Gary Davies and William Caselden of Great Bridge Properties of Manchester. Rental rates — which will include heating and electricity — for Conway Pines are expected to be $675 for a one-bedroom apartment, $775 for a twobedroom, and $910 for a three-bedroom. While some have argued that those in the service industry only make $10 to $11 per hour, officials said further assistance may be available. “We do have some rental assistance through Rural Development so if people cannot pay that pro forma rate, we can lend some assistance,” said Caselden. Filling a need The rental housing project is the first affordable housing venture in the Conways since the late 1980s. At a post-groundbreaking reception held at the MWV Technical Center, Davies said the project has been seven years in the making, with the Conway Planning Board having granted conditional approval two and a half years ago, and the final aspects of the financing package having been obtained in June. Funding for the $6.6 million project came in the form of a $1 million first mortgage from U.S.D.A. Rural Development; $600,000 from N.H. Housing Authority, ($200,000 of which is for the Greener Homes incentive for the geothermal and solar); and $5 million through the sale of tax credits to the project's investor, Boston Capital of Boston, Mass. Among the elected officials on hand for the postgroundbreaking were state Sen. Jeb Bradley, executive councilor Raymond S. Burton of District 1, and representatives of U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Frank Guinta's offices. Davies spoke of the threat to the tax credit pro-

Ed Butler said the project will create jobs during the down economy while also helping local workers find affordable housing. With more affordable rates, that in turn could open up time for workers, as perhaps they would not have to work a second or third job to meet living expenses, Butler supposed. “Once rented,” said Butler, “occupants will be able to volunteer and give back to the community, maybe for the fire department or even the local housing coalition. I am pleased to be in the company of [those] who recognize the need.” gram in the budget-cutting climate in Congress. He said it was key to let elected officials know how important that program is to affordable housing projects similar to Conway Pines. Chuck Henderson, liaison for Shaheen, said he would pass those comments along. Burton said the project represents what can be done in the state when the government and private groups work collaboratively. He also said building an affordable rental housing project shows that Conway is growing in a well-planned way. “Conway has welcomed and guided growth. Conway has not built a fence around it — so I commend the people and the elected officials,” said Burton. Also in attendance were representatives of USDA, N.H. Housing, Boston Capital, the Conway Board of Selectmen, the town of Conway, the N.H. Charitable Foundation, the MWV Housing Coalition, the MWV Chamber of Commerce and MWV Economic Council.

General contractor for the project is Gary Chicoine of Chicoine Construction of Weare. Ed Poliquin, formerly a co-owner of Glen Builders, was also present. Poliquin is the former owner of the property. David Miller of Glen Builders was also at the groundbreaking as that local company is doing the site work. Ed Butler, current board member and past chair of the MWV Housing Coalition, said the project will create jobs during the down economy while also helping local workers find affordable housing. With more affordable rates, that in turn could open up time for workers, as perhaps they would not have to work a second or third job to meet living expenses, Butler supposed. “Once rented,” said Butler, “occupants will be able to volunteer and give back to the community, maybe for the fire department or even the local housing coalition. I am pleased to be in the company of [those] who recognize the need.” Tourism economy’s impacts Kennett said a recent study in New Hampshire showed as many as 40 percent of workers in the tourism-dependent economy of Carroll County cannot afford to buy a house or pay rent. She said as a tourism region, prices are elevated because of the demand for vacation properties. While it's true that this is a single building, Kennett is hopeful that other projects will follow to meet the needs of working families throughout the valley. “Again, this is only 32 units, but it will provide quality housing for people who are doubled up or who live outside Mount Washington Valley,” said Kennett. Long time coming The project has been seven years in the making, with the project having received conditional approval from the Conway Planning Board two and a half years ago, said Davies. “We originally started looking at the property behind [T.J. Maxx, the old North Conway Drive-In Theatre],” said Davies, noting that that site at one time was to become a retirement community, but only one structure was ever built as financing was not obtained. He praised Poliquin for making the property available, and the town of Conway's zoning for providing see next page

teer are inadequate limits of coverage or that their personal coverage is too narrow to respond to the situation they face. Further, our experience has been that volunteers often assume they will be protected by the organization and are disappointed when they have to rely on their own insurance. It becomes a bit of a public relations problem for the organization. Organizations interested in pro-

greater density allowances for properties that are furnished with community water and sewer. “This is a great site,” said Davies. Track record of affordable units Great Bridge was created in 2000 to build and renovate affordable housing projects. The company has built medium-size and large apartment units in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, according to Davies and Caselden. Past projects include Ossipee Village Apartments, Brookside Place in Rochester, Bellamy Mill Apartments in Dover and Parker Village in Littleton. In addition to new facilities, such as Conway Pines, the company has also renovated old mills, schools and other structures to create apartments. The Conway Pines property will be managed by Stewart Property Management of Bedford, a company that has managed several of Great Bridge's properties, Davies said. The company manages more than 110 properties in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine and Massachusetts.

viding additional protection for their volunteers should work with a professional insurance agent to identify the options and insurance companies willing to provide them. Volunteers are essential to organizations (particularly during the holiday season). Make sure proper coverage for them is in place.

The MWV Housing Coalition was formed in 2006 by representatives from small business, state government, the non-profit community and private citizens who were concerned that housing stock, both units for rental and purchase, was unaffordable for local residents, according to Butler and Kennett. Additionally, they said the founders were concerned that affordable and accessible housing was becoming increasingly scarce for the fastest growing segment of our population – the aging and elderly. How to apply Kennett encouraged prospective applicants to contact Stewart Property Management as soon as possible, as the company will process applications on a first-come, first-served basis. “They will begin processing applications 90 days before the project is completed,” said Kennett, adding the company will do credit checks and criminal checks and will also be seeking references.

Santa’s secret workshop at the New Suncook School Dec. 10 Just a reminder that today is the “date which will live in infamy” Dec. 7, the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. I hope that teachers would remind the student what this day means to many older people still living that remember how that day changed the world. Bless to all those who made the supreme sacrifice and didn’t live to see Dec. 7, 2011, 70 years later. On Sunday, Nov. 27, the Fryeburg/Lovell VFW Post No. 6783 held a thank you breakfast for those who volunteered to work in the VFW booth during the Fryeburg Fair. It was at the breakfast that post member Henry Middlemiss announced that Poland Springs had donated an AED Defibrillator made by Zol to be used in case of an emergency at the hall. Seeing a need for this type of equipment at the hall because of all the events like bingo, the adult exercise class the Christmas concert and other functions Henry set out to find a way to get the equipment donated to the VFW. He contacted Donna Woodward and Mark Dubois at Poland Spring in Fryeburg and made inquiries as to how you go about asking Poland Spring to make this type of donation. Poland Spring’s policy of making a donation each month was taken into consideration and the company agreed to put the VFW into the November slot. This type of portable equipment can be use by anyone; you just follow the verbal instructions. Fryeburg Rescue Chief Stephen Goldsmith was introduced and he showed how the defibrillator was used. At one time CPR would be used also but the EMS has changed the way CPR is done today with emphasis on the chest presses being uninterrupted but constant. To show the post’s appreciation, Post Commander Richard King gave Donna Woodward, representing Poland Springs, an official certificate of thanks for her part in the Post receiving this valuable piece of life saving equipment. The tree lighting in the village was wonderful. Fam-

ilies, children, moms, dads and grandparents gather round the tree to sing Christmas carols before tuning on the tree. Not long after the tree was shining bright the sound of sirens excited the children who knew who was coming down the street thanks to the volunteer firemen. Santa and Mrs. Claus were followed into the Stephen and Tabitha King hall in the library so the children could tell their inner most wishes for Christmas. Refreshments were plenty and voices were gay a wonderful way to end a beautiful day. I love Lovell and the people who live here and the people who thought enough of Paul McLaughlin to fill the fire station on Saturday night. I heard rumors that probably 500 attended the pasta dinner all to support a smiling guy with his wonderful wife and seven kids who happens to be going through a tough patch right now. Type 4 cancer is a challenge to both these guy and they’ll fight the good fight. To all those who helped out on the dinner and those who showed up to support the family a huge round of applause and a big Thank You. The Fryeburg/Lovell VFW Post 6783 Christmas concert was marvelous. There is nothing better then an orchestra playing smooth music to entertain. The Christmas sing along was great putting everyone in the mood for the holidays. This tradition of Fan Fare is one that makes those who attend very happy. Thanks to Fan Fare and the VFW for bring a touch of Christmas to Lovell. By the way the special solo of the four flautist was wonderful. On Sunday, Dec. 18, the Lovell Historical Society will have decorated the Kimball-Stanford House in the Christmas holiday spirit for the Christmas Open House from 1 to 4 p.m. The bakeshop will be brimming with holiday goods to take home for later and the Hospitality Table will have free cookies punch tea or coffee. To remember this event the children will have a chance to do some cookies decorating themselves. There will be four raffle items, proceeds to go toward the continued work of the volunteers of

the Society. On Saturday, Dec. 10, there will be a Santa’s secret workshop at the New Suncook School for New Suncook students and local youngsters. The children will have the opportunity to either create a Christmas gift or shop in the Workshop for that special gift for a love one. Can’t decide what to buy? The workshop workers will be willing to give advice bring your list included in the newsletter. Sorry, parents aren’t allowed in the workshop but they can enjoy the book fair, maybe finding just the right book for their child. There also will be snacks and the parents can watch a basketball game while the kids are busy shopping. Santa will be at the workshop so don’t forget your free picture. If a parent or grandparent would like to volunteer to help that day you can contact Jean Andrews at (207) 9251163. Don’t forget the Lovell United Church of Christ online Holiday Auction. You have until 9 am Dec. 11 see LOVELL page 23

Bald Eagle surveying training Dec. 10

Last weekend saw a pretty good crowd out in Effingham to usher in the season in Taylor City and we are all grateful for all the work put in to insure that Effingham has one of the more impressive large lighted public Christmas trees in the state; a not insubstantial claim. It is a pleasure to see the tree with all its lights as one drives down route 153. Our library held a very well attended "official ribbon cutting" to thank everyone involved in allowing the library to install all new shelving for its collection. Any event in town that can get more than a dozen people out to gather together is, in Effingham terms, worth a note in local news. There must have been at least 35 people in the library chatting, mingling and eating. Thanks go out to the citizens of Effingham, the friends of the library and past trustee member Mike Cauble; Mike was instrumental in procuring the grant that supplied a third of the monies needed, for all they did to supply the needed funding. The library looks great, the books are all visible and plans are underway to turn the old book room into a public meeting space. There is a rumor going around that the selectmen are again applying themselves to getting a municipal web page up and running. The money was appropriated at last year’s town meeting and a tech committee had been formed to achieve this essential town service. Lack of attendance at the tech meetings has been given as the prime reason that the web page is still only in the planning stages. Bald Eagle surveying training on Saturday, Dec. 10, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. aat Green Mountain Conservation group’s office in Effingham. Come for coffee and training by Chris Martin of the NH Audubon. After the lesson the group will carpool to various locations to practice scouting Eagles for the upcoming national wide survey. Pre-registration is

Bring your favorite cookies to share. There are those with snow blowers and most of the plow guys who understand the problem of first snows. Without the underlayment of a base coat of snow plowing and snowblowing can be a pain. Plows dig up the ground and snowlblowers snap off

shear pins due to stones and sticks, but consideration should be given to the fact that as problematical as snow on bare ground is having the snow melt off because of warm temperatures means just that: warm temperatures with their attendant opportunities to sit in the sun and actually take off a jacket or sweater. Now it is true that your reporter actually likes winter and snow, but as the years have passed it is becoming evident that either your average shovel full of snow weighs more than it used to, or the aging of knees, wrist, forearms and back are beginning to require a significantly longer period of recuperation once the shovel is put back in the shed. So, enjoy the sun and warmth while you can.

Tin Mountain presents ‘Alpine Ecosystems and Ecology’ course

ALBANY — The second program in Tin Mountain’s Alpine adult nature course series will provide an in depth overview of the White Mountain’s alpine ecosystem and ecology. Join the AMC’s Dr. Ken Kimball on Thursday, Dec. 8, from 6 to 9 p.m. to learn more. Kimball is the research director for the Appalachian Mountain Club. His academic training includes a bachelor’s of science from Cornell University, a master’s of science from the University of Massachusetts and a PhD from the University of New Hampshire. Before joining the AMC staff in 1983, Kimball had worked as an environmental consultant, a research scientist at Cornell, and as a research scientist in Iran for the Smithsonian InstitutePeace Corps Environmental Program, a low point in his career where he was working on the Caspian Sea at minus 89 feet below sea level. Ken has explored numerous ecosystems around the world from Nepal to Africa to Central America. Alpine ecosystems have always been special to the Mount Washington Valley, small in size and stature but large in shaping the area’s image. The course

will take a comparative look at northeastern alpine ecosystems and how they differ from their relatives in the western United States, Europe, and the tundra to the north. It will explore the dominant factors that prevent forests from covering our region’s iconic alpine ecosystems today, as well as the importance of micro-topography in determining what alpine plants grow where. After developing a better understanding of the factors that shape our regions alpine ecosystems, the course will review how that knowledge has been applied in the ‘mountain rescue’ of one of the rarest alpine plants in the world to assessing how resistant and resilient these ecosystems will be to new challenges like recreational impacts, air pollution and climate change. Tin Mountain’s Alpine adult nature course series will continue through the new year, culminating in a hike up to the White Mountain’s alpine zone to investigate many of the topics first hand. Upcoming topics include alpine wildlife, plant communities, wildflowers, and more. Visit www.tinmountain. org for the most up-to-date program lising.

An additional seventh scene depicts the biblical “Flight into Egypt” when Mary and Joseph and the infant Christ fled into neighboring Egypt in order to avoid the slaughter of all male children under the age of two by King Herod. “Christmas is the season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall, the genial flame of charity in the heart.”— Washington Irving.

Fryeburg Academy Column

‘The Man, The Place and His Dreams’ exhibit at Pace Galleries of Art We recently had a new opening at the Pace Galleries of Art. This time it was art by John Hultberg of Monhegan Island. His show is, “The Man, The Place and His Dreams.” John Day, a member of FA’s Class of 1967, is our director of the Pace Galleries. If you want to get on John’s list to hear about upcoming Pace Galleries opening receptions and exhibits, email him at No worries if you missed the opening, the exhibit runs through Jan. 21 and the Pace Galleries are open Monday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., during Eastman Performing Arts Center performances and by appointment, call (207) 935-9232. We have a new issue of Scenes which was released in early November. This issue was jam packed with photos, our annual report of gifts, an article on two of our Serbian students and the homestay program, a photo retrospective of this summer’s reunion, FA Today, many other Fryeburg Academy events and much more. Our Scenes magazine is available in its entirety on our website or call us and we’ll mail you one. Scenes is published twice a year and is mailed to all FA alums, donors and current families. Reunion 2011 was wonderful. Our distinguished alums this year were some of our best. The 2011 recipients were the three chairs of the FA Steering Committee to rebuild after the 2005 fire - Asa O. Pike IV ’57, Brett Russell ’56 and Chris Gordon ’85. These three dedicated trustees of Fryeburg Academy led this school to new heights. As one of thousands of alums of this school, I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude, as well as that of all alums, to A.O., Brett & Chris for their loyalty and hard work. Now in our 220th year, Fryeburg Academy continues to advance because of its incredible fortunate history of fine leadership. More than 500 people attended reunion 2011 mostly those celebrating a fifth-year reunion of some sort. For the Class of 1961 it was their 50th. The 50th reunion year is always my personal favorite. The members of the class who make the effort to come and enjoy their

classmates as well as their old school find the weekend very uplifting. And they are grateful to be here and amongst those friends who helped make them who they are today. It is always a joy to see them together. Everyone continues to marvel at the great banquet that Alan Whitaker ’77 and his staff put together. Reunion 2011 included a tribute to the history of FA wrestling, school tours, receptions, the banquet and a See You Next Year breakfast – all under the direction of FA alumni director Todd Gallagher ’82. Speaking of reunion, future reunion dates are being moved to June. The 2012 dates are June 15, 16 and 17. This year we’re adding a reunion parade. It will be held on Saturday, June 16, in the afternoon. More details coming later. If you would like to participate in our parade, e-mail me at rdamon@fryeburgacademy. org. Just got back from a trip to Bermuda and reconnecting with many of our Bermudian alums. Not to worry that I enjoyed their beaches too much – my trip was marked with gale force winds and torrential rains. My first trip to the island that lays 500 miles in the middle of the Atlantic, was still great. I met up with several old friends and also interviewed a couple of new potential students for FA. I would highly recommend Bermuda to anyone. The people are so kind and friendly, the landscape is gorgeous and their water is the most beautiful turquoise color I’ve ever seen. Come visit the Fryeburg Academy school store located in the Alumni and Development Office at Fryeburg Academy and get some Christmas gifts off your list. We have sweatshirts, T-shirts, decals, blankets, travel mugs, mouse pads, official FA Frisbees, hats and much more. We are open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. As always, we’ve got great events lined up at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center during the month of December. On Wednesday, Dec. 7, Joe DeVito-FA Faculty (English) will host his opera

Everyone’s good friend and former FA teacher, Scott Kelly ’53, turned 78 on Nov. 27. Mr. Kelly started as a teacher and coach at Fryeburg Academy in 1958. Now in his 53rd year, he continues working tirelessly for the Academy. Since 2005 he has been our alumni coordinator. One of Mr. Kelly’s favorite jobs is to call everyone who makes a donation to the school to thank them. We can hear him laughing with former students and friends all day long. Mr. Kelly never forgets a story involving an alum, especially a sports story, or a nickname of which he applied to many of us. Seriously, it is an honor to work with Mr. Kelly every day. He is a very special man to generations of Fryeburg Academy students. We posted Mr. Kelly’s birthday news on our FA Facebook page and one of his former students, Ally Horn from FA’s Class of 2002 writes, “Happy Birthday, Mr. Kelly. You’re one of the reasons I loved the sciences so much in high school and that led to me making the decision to go to medical school... and I’ll be graduating in May. Thank you.” As a teacher, I don’t think compliments get any better than that.

Jamboree Valley Soccer Cup was a kicking success ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

The Mount Washington Valley Soccer Club hosted its annual Jamboree Valley Cup Tournament on Oct. 15. Twelve teams from around the valley consisting of over 175 players enjoyed a day-long tournament held at the Kennett Middle School. Teams ranged from third through sixth grade and showcased an impressive level of soccer skills throughout the event. Taking home the Valley Cup for the third/fourth grade level this year was the Jackson squad with a win over North Conway and for the fifth/sixth grade level the champion was Moultonborough with a win also over North Conway. The soccer club would like to thank all the sponsors who made this a spectacular event: Shaw’s, Hannaford’s, Grant’s, Starbuck’s, Village Bakery, Joseph’s Spaghetti Shed, Jockey Cap General Store, Timberland, Kennett Soccer Booster Club, Nike, Direct Kick/ Make the Save Soccer Academy, and the Valley Original’s Restaurants. “We thank the administrative staff and grounds crew of the Kennett Middle school for providing a great

venue,” Dan Phelps, of the club, said. “We would also like to thank the countless volunteers from Nike, Timberland, the Kennett High School athletes, and the soccer club, who kept the tournament running smoothly. The MWVSC anticipates an even bigger and better event next fall!”

The Drop by Michael Connelly Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. Relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch makes two chilling discoveries: a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Someone will check in with you on a subject of great import. Don’t worry. You won’t be expected to come up with all the answers. For now, it’s enough that you are open to hearing what the questions are. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You feel confident that you don’t have to control a relationship in order for it to move in a direction that will please you. You’ve chosen the right partners and allies so your common interests will drive the action. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have something important to impart. You feel that if you touch even one person with your message, it will have been worthwhile. The reality is that you’ll touch many. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are someone on whom nothing is lost. You don’t always act on what you see. In fact, you usually don’t feel the need. You’ll log today’s observations and wait for the right moment to act on them. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Unexpected encounters will get you all charged up. You may run into the one who makes your heart skip a beat or the one who secretly adores you from afar. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 7). You’ll accomplish a physical goal and take actions toward optimum health over the next 10 weeks. In May, you’ll act on something you read or hear and will be wildly successful. Look for opportunities to expand your business, enterprises and/or education in June. The summer will make family memories. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 3, 11, 40 and 19.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe you used to give your love so that you could receive love back, but now you give love just because it comes so naturally for you. It’s the easiest thing for you to do. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll experience a heightened, joyful feeling, and the best part is that it will be effortless to maintain. It will come over you like the sun and warm you through and through. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do people choose one another, or are they meant for one another? You’re not sure if you believe in romantic destiny, but in certain moments today, it will seem plausible. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be ultra-observant today, and exactitude will be your forte. Peruse important documents, financial statements and contracts for errors. You could catch a mistake in time to save the day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Wherever possible, you’ll use the resources that you encounter to create opportunities. But you won’t push. Things have to happen naturally for you to be excited about them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll tap into an extra jolt of power and will apply it to improving your physical performance, work and/or male relationships. A father figure may have a stronger influence than usual. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be motivated by a timeline. Make sure you also know what the rewards are for sticking to each deadline. You’re internally driven, but it also helps to have obvious external accountability and rewards.

Today is Wednesday, Dec. 7, the 341st day of 2011. There are 24 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese navy launched a surprise attack on the U.S. Navy base at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii as part of a plan to preempt any American military response to Japan’s planned conquest of Southeast Asian territories; the raid, which claimed some 2,400 American lives, prompted the United States to declare war against Japan the next day. On this date: In 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. In 1796, electors chose John Adams to be the second president of the United States. In 1808, electors chose James Madison to be the fourth president of the United States. In 1836, Martin Van Buren was elected the eighth president of the United States. In 1909, chemist Leo H. Baekeland received a U.S. patent for Bakelite (BAY’kuh-lyt), the first synthetic plastic. In 1911, China abolished the requirement that men wear their hair in a queue, or ponytail. In 1946, fire broke out at the Winecoff (WYN’-kahf) Hotel in Atlanta; the blaze killed 119 people, including hotel founder W. Frank Winecoff. In 1972, America’s last moon mission to date was launched as Apollo 17 blasted off from Cape Canaveral. In 1987, 43 people were killed after a gunman aboard a Pacific Southwest Airlines jetliner in California apparently opened fire on a fellow passenger, the pilots and himself, causing the plane to crash. In 1993, gunman Colin Ferguson opened fire on a Long Island Rail Road commuter train, killing six people and wounding 19. (Ferguson was later sentenced to a minimum of 200 years in prison.) One year ago: Elizabeth Edwards, the estranged wife of former U.S. Sen. John Edwards, died at her home in Chapel Hill, N.C., at 61 after fighting breast cancer. Today’s Birthdays: Actor Eli Wallach is 96. Bluegrass singer Bobby Osborne is 80. Actress Ellen Burstyn is 79. Broadcast journalist Carole Simpson is 71. Baseball Hall of Famer Johnny Bench is 64. Actor-director-producer James Keach is 64. Country singer Gary Morris is 63. Singer-songwriter Tom Waits is 62. Basketball Hall of Famer Larry Bird is 55. Actress Priscilla Barnes is 54. Former “Tonight Show” announcer Edd Hall is 53. Rock musician Tim Butler is 53. Actor Jeffrey Wright is 46. Actor C. Thomas Howell is 45. Producer-director Jason Winer is 39. NFL player Terrell Owens is 38. Pop singer Nicole Appleton is 36. Country singer Sunny Sweeney is 35. Actress Shiri Appleby is 33. Pop-rock singer/celebrity judge Sara Bareilles is 32. Singer Aaron Carter is 24.

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: When I married my husband, “Mason,” 30 years ago, I was the only girl he could get. He was a great catch by my standards -- and still is. But back then nobody else wanted him but me, which was fine with me. I don’t like competition. We have had a great life together up until the last 10 years or so. Mason is aging gracefully, and there’s something about him now that every woman is suddenly interested in. They all treat him like he’s a new toy. They fawn over him and I become invisible. We don’t get out much, and I used to think I wanted to go out more -- but now I just want to stay home and hide my husband inside. The real problem is, Mason loves the attention. It could be what he always wanted. I don’t know how to handle this without getting my feelings hurt, pouting and being incredibly jealous. He gives me no reason to think he’ll be unfaithful, but I can’t help but worry. Help! -- WIFE OF A LATE BLOOMER DEAR WIFE: Congratulations. You are now a member of a “club” comprised of spouses living in the shadows of actors, politicians, moguls, etc. However, your self-esteem issues could create real problems for you and your husband if you don’t learn to deal with them. You weren’t the “only woman Mason could get” -- you’re the woman Mason CHOSE to spend his life with. The sooner you accept that, the better off both of you will be. If you can’t do it on your own, counseling could help because hiding is not the answer. DEAR ABBY; My son and daughter-in-law live like pigs. Neither one of them was raised that way. They live in a beautiful home that literally smells like a litter box. I would look the other way or not visit, but now they have four children.

Not only are my grandchildren unkempt and dirty -- dirty clothes, smelly shoes, unwashed hair -- but my son and his wife foist their parenting duties off on their daughter, who’s only 10. It’s HER job to get her brothers up and bathed, changed, dressed and fed so Mom and Dad can sleep late. The poor girl is exhausted all the time. She doesn’t always have the time to brush her own hair/teeth before school. She’s often made fun of. My son sees nothing wrong with these “chores,” and I’m afraid to say anything because I know my daughter-in-law will cut me off from the kids. What’s sad is my son allows it. Am I crazy? Please help. -- DESPERATE GRANDMA ON THE EAST COAST DEAR DESPERATE GRANDMA: You’re not crazy; you’re a caring grandmother who can’t stand seeing her grandchildren neglected. Now pick up the phone and call Childhelp. The toll-free number is 800-422-4453. The advocate who answers the call can give you information about agencies that can help, and your confidentiality will be protected. DEAR ABBY: My father-in-law drops by our house nearly every weekend. He arrives so early that we’re usually still in bed. He also rides a motorcycle that sounds like a jet engine and disturbs our neighbors. I have asked my husband several times to talk to his dad about these early morning visits. He refuses to say anything. We have two kids who are 4 and 9 months. Sleep is something we cherish. What do I do? -- ANNOYED DAUGHTER-INLAW IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR DAUGHTER-IN-LAW: Because your husband refuses to stand up and explain to his father that he needs to come at a specific time -- like 11 o’clock -- that task now falls to YOU. Speak up!
