School board member says he’s ‘passionate,’ but he doesn’t go ‘overboard’ at sporting events BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — School board member Randy Davison defended his behavior in the stands of school sports games on Wednesday, saying he’s done nothing wrong.

“I’m no more boisterous than any other person out there,” he said. His remarks come just days before the school is set to release more than 20 pages of letters and e-mails complaining about Davison, a school board member, and his behavior at sporting events. These are documents a

superior court judge ruled the school had to release under open government laws. Some of the documents are short e-mails, Davison said, and not nearly as weighty as the number would suggest. see DAVISON page 8

‘Carrie’ musical returns (NY Times) — Of all the infamous scenes in the 1988 Broadway musical “Carrie” — based on Stephen King’s novel — the Act II opening number “Out for Blood” has become the stuff of legend. Leather-clad actors playing high-school jocks leapt about as one of them slaughtered an unseen trough of pigs. “Kill the pig, pig, pig,” the boys chanted, and their shirtless ringleader, Billy, smeared his chest with the fake porcine blood. “Carrie” was such a critical and financial flop (at $8 million) that, afterward, its three creators refused to allow another professional production anywhere in the world . MCC Theater, a respected Off Broadway company, is trying to reclaim “Carrie” from contempt. The creators have rewritten the story into a modern-day tale of bullying, with mean girls mocking notions of “equality,” and replaced several songs for the $1.5 million production, which is now in preview performances and opens on March 1. Anyone expecting laser lights, simulated fire or the levitating prom gown of the telekinetic Carrie will have to keep searching for bootleg videos of the short-lived Broadway run, for this revival hews to the original vision of a fable about high school instead of the spectacle that became so ridiculed that it inspired a book about Broadway’s biggest botches, “Not Since Carrie.”


Fiction is the truth inside the lie.” —Stephen King

Mortgage plan gives homeowners bulk of benefits (NY Times) — After months of painstaking talks, government authorities and five of the nation’s biggest banks have agreed to a $26 billion settlement that could provide relief to nearly two million current and former American homeowners harmed by the bursting of the housing bubble, state and federal officials said in Washington on Thursday. It is part of a broad national settlement aimed at halting the housing market’s

downward slide and holding the banks accountable for foreclosure abuses. Under the plan, federal officials said, about $5 billion would be cash payments to states and federal authorities, $17 billion would be earmarked for homeowner relief, roughly $3 billion would go for refinancing and a final $1 billion would be paid to the Federal Housing Administration. If nine other major mortgage servicers join the pact, a possibility that is now

under discussion with the government, the total package could rise to $30 billion. Because of a complicated formula being used to distribute the money, federal officials say the ultimate benefits provided to homeowners could equal a larger sum — $45 billion in the event all 14 major servicers participate. The aid is to be distributed over three years, but there are incentives for banks to provide the money in the next 12 months.

Greeks reach deal on austerity House passes bill banning insider trading by members of Congress to meet condition of bailout ATHENS (NY Times) — After days of maneuvering, Greek political leaders reached a tentative deal on Thursday on a package of tough austerity measures demanded by Greece’s financial backers in return for the country’s latest bailout. The deal was intended to unlock 130 billion euros, or $173 billion, in new loans and save Greece from a potentially disastrous default. But there was no immediate flurry of checkbooks opening, as the country’s lenders sought to determine that all conditions had been met. Heading into a meeting of euro

zone leaders Thursday night in Brussels, the Greek finance minister, Evangelos Venizelos, described the deal as a “new, strong and credible program.” He said it had been reached at “staff level” with the so-called troika of lenders — the European Commission, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank. “We also have an agreement with private creditors on the basic parameters” of a debt write-down, Venizelos said. “Now we need the political endorsement of the euro group for the final step.”

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill on Thursday to ban insider trading by members of Congress and to impose new ethics requirements on lawmakers and federal agency officials. The 417-to-2 vote came less than three weeks after President Obama demanded such action in his State of the Union address. The Senate approved a similar bill by a vote of 96 to 3 on Feb. 2, but the lopsided votes concealed deep disagreements over the details of the legislation. The swift response and the debate in both chambers showed lawmakers defensive and anxious about the low esteem in which Congress is held. The public approval rating of Congress has sunk below 15 percent. “We need to stop the insidious practice of insider trading, giving members of this body an unfair advantage over Americans who sent us here to represent them,” said Representative Kathy Hochul, Democrat of New York. “Let us begin the long process of restoring the faith of the American people in this institution.”

Aquatic center receives grant to upgrade pool facilities BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BARTLETT — The White Mountain Aquatic Foundation received a generous and timely $1,000 grant award recently from the Rotary Club of North Conway that will be used to construct an airlock addition to the entrance of its indoor pool at the New England Inn. When completed the entryway will make the facility more energy efficient, comfortable and cleaner. The White Mountain Aquatic Foundation, a 501(3)c nonprofit, was established in 2007 "to develop a multiple-use community aquatic center in the Mount Washington Valley to provide public access to aquatic education, recreation, safety, competition, fitness and rehabilitation programs." Last June, the foundation signed a five-year lease with the owners of the New England Inn to operate and manage the inn's indoor pool facility. The pool is now home to the White Mountain Aquatic Center. The center is the only facility in the area offering year-round aquatic programming to people of all ages and abilities. According to Maury McKinney, vice president of the foundation, over 100 children per week participate in learn-to-swim programs and swim teams. There are also around 30 to 40 adults per week involved in adult programs such as our Masters Workout Group, Water Aerobics, Aqua Zumba, and Water Movement for Seniors. Other adults use the pool for fitness swimming, water therapy and family swims. The White Mountain Aquatic Foundation goal, according to its website (, is "to establish a three-pool, multiple-use aquatic center in the Mount Washington Valley. This facility is the missing piece in our community that will provide aquatic education, recreation,

safety, competition, fitness and rehabilitation services. We believe this facility will enhance the health and quality of life, and strengthen the ties of community for our residents and visitors." "The board of directors of the White Mountain Aquatic Foundation is grateful for the support being provided by Rotary Club of North Conway," McKinney said. "We believe this capital renovation will help distinguish our pool as a fun and comfortable place for our residents and visitors to get safe, get fit and get well." Memberships are now available at the White Mountain Aquatic Center. "Come swim with us at our new home at the New England Inn in Intervale," the website states. "Whether you want to swim laps, water walk, do your own therapy/rehab, or swim with your family, you can do that all here at our pool. We want our facility and programs to have a positive impact on the safety, health and wellness of our community." Memberships are for one person: $40 per month, $100 for three months or $375 for one year. Family: $60 per month, $150 for three months or $575 for one year. McKinney also coaches the successful Saco Valley Swim Team which is is comprised of swimmers of all ages and abilities from many towns in Mount Washington Valley. Saco Valley Swim Team is affiliated with the Granite State Swim Association, which is a summer recreational league consisting of about 30 swim teams from New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts. The purpose of the Granite State Swim Association is to promote and develop competitive swimming. The Saco Valley Swim Team most recently competed in a winter meet last week indoors in Colebrook. The winter 2012 session schedule runs from Jan. 9 through March 3. Rates for team members are $15 per

Explaining Medicare with facts not fear To the editor: In response to Maynard Thomson’s recent letter (Feb.3) stating that Medicare would be bankrupt by 2024 is at best a misstatement and at worst a lie. Medicare trustees have not “warned of insolvency,” rather they have carefully outlined HI (Part A) funds as follows. “The projected date of HI Trust Fund exhaustion is 2024, five years earlier than estimated in last year’s report, at which time dedicated revenues would be sufficient to pay 90 percent of HI costs. The share of HI expenditures that can be financed with HI dedicated revenues is projected to decline slowly to 75 percent in 2045, and then rise slowly, reaching 88 percent in 2085.” (Report submitted in May 2011) Maynard only quotes the first part of the sentence. One has to read the entire paragraph to grasp the full intent of the Medicare Trustees. However, in the long term the trustees do indicate that legislative action is in order to sustain full future benefits for those persons who rely on Medicare funds. The main reasons for the Medicare expenditures to exceed income are increased enrollment and increased medical care expenses. The Affordable Care (ACA) is moderating the increase in costs of medical care, bringing sizable improvement in the

financial outlook. Maggie Mahar who writes Health Beat as a Health Care Fellow at The Century Foundation states: “The fear mongers argue that unless we either shift the costs to seniors; raise the age when they become eligible for Medicare; or turn the whole program over to private sector insurers, Medicare expenditures will bankrupt the country.” That, Mr. Thomson is where you fit in — as a “fear monger”! In August 2011 Don Berwick, M.D., administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, states that as a result of ACA the financial outlook for Medicare greatly improved as compared to previous evaluations. “The Hospital Insurance (Part A) trust fund is projected to be able to pay all benefits on time until 2029.” Carroll County Democrats are interested that those who need Medicare will be able to access the funds. Consequently we make a concerted effort to explain the situation using facts rather than inciting fear and anxiety. Interestingly, Carol SheaPorter is in good company when she says “Medicare works, leave it alone, ” since The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) indicates that “Medicare is the single most efficient health care system in the world.” Kathryn Cauble Effingham

Learn to Fly “What does rock and roll mean to you?” asked the interviewer of Bruce Springsteen during a break on his 1978 Darkness tour. The answer? “A steady job.” She went on to question him about success and how it felt now that he was selling out larger and larger venues. Springsteen was nostalgic in his answer. “I don’t know … when we were living in the [surfboard factory] and playing little clubs all over the coast … we didn’t know we were struggling. We were playing. It didn’t feel hard. None of us had to have day jobs. We were living it up.” The interviewer goes on to imply that now he’s really “made it;” he’s “successful.” Springsteen posits: “If you make more than $500 a night, you’re gonna have more than $500 a night problems.” On the dawn of my 53rd birthday, I am pondering the concept of success. Having spent most of my life rejecting (oftentimes with grinding ambivalence, mind you), the larger societal definition of what’s “normal,” success is a concept that I find increasingly elusive. My participation in Occupy events this year, and other political causes from the election of Obama to more quiet, daily actions, success can be defined quite simply: presence. But referencing back to my advancing age, I look around at my good friends of the similar age, and where “we are.” I am wholly unable to reject out of hand my parent’s definition of success: healthy children, respect in the community, a job with status, plenty of money, and a beautiful home. It never quite fit for this woman who felt a bit uncomfortable if she owned more than she could fit in her car. But I am hardly without my creature comforts. I’ve often joked that I really want the revolution to come but am terrified I won’t be able to find good moisturizer after it does.*

Many in our generation want things that are more simple. The concept of financial security that the middle class used to aspire to has been vanquished. Living paycheck to paycheck without too many financial surprises and having our children healthy and reasonably happy are the more humble yardsticks of success for us today. When hanging out with my childless (or child free, depending on your point of view) friends I was envious of the big deals that they are a part of: vice president of this, owner of that, displays in galleries, refurbished bungalows, published works. They ganged up on me with incredulity: You have a child. You’re complaining about leaving something behind? Are you kidding? Obviously, I had already achieved part of their definition of success and was remiss in my taking it for granted. But my offspring are just that: people in their own right with their own journeys to “success” depending on how they define it. I’m at a point where I’m pretty sure success isn’t defined solely by my bank statement, the mirror, my parent’s opinion of me, pop culture, the pundits on NPR or Fox, etc. Although it feels closer to me when I glance over to see my daughter laughing, my cats cuddled up on the end of the bed, or my husband beaming after a climb up Mt. Pierce, it remains elusive, and yet to be defined. Pete Townsend said, “Don’t bother trying to grow old gracefully, you don’t have it in you.” If that’s true, I’ve got it all wrapped up. *with thanks to Brett Butler, who said this first.

Down beyond the edge of the field, a lone deer steps cautiously out of the trees and stands stock still for what seems like an eternity. I imagine her ears twitching even as she listens and sniffs for the telltale signs of danger she has known forever. After a while she crosses slowly into the field where the remnants of last year’s harvest poke stiffly through the thin crust of snow; the seeds of hope planted back in the spring now offering sustenance amid the winter snows. It is February and there is usually little to eat at this time of year; so unlike during the summer, her visit is welcome. Hope for her is as simple as a full stomach and then safe passage back to the winter deer yard tucked away invisibly among the pines. Hope, for us, is so much more. There is probably no better time to consider the idea of hope than at this moment when we are immersed and firmly rooted at the midpoint of a long New England winter. Hope for spring, even in January, is that positive pattern of seasonal thought that enables many of us to manage difficult days; all the while understanding that the calendar still moves reliably toward spring, at the same pace, every year. The word hope, of course, has been highly overused and was even co-opted as the underlying

theme of the most recent successful presidential campaign. Closer to home, however, hope applies to as many aspects of the human condition as we can imagine, from health, to wealth, to simple happiness. Hope is thus attached to lottery odds, job searches, driving conditions, and a whole host of related circumstances that fill our day-to-day lives. We hope for a beautiful day, we hope our credit card isn’t maxed out, we hope for that check in the mail, and many of us hope against hope that we might actually be able to retire some day. My friend, Conrad Eastman, late of Fryeburg, early and often told me that he did not care for the word hope, or more specifically, the conceit of its commonly used adverb form, hopefully. For him the idea of letting go of the possibilities of life and opportunity, and simply “hoping” that good would happen, was far too passive. Hope is not an action verb, he well knew, and leaving the future of some important activity fully to chance was not his style. In our years of working together, his quiet style of believing that good would come in the end from hard work, good humor, and a deep and personal sense of faith, always carried the day. see next page

Growing population: More human misery, animal cruelty To the editor: This coming spring readies itself for the annual seal hunt in Newfoundland, Canada. This despicable event only serves to satisfy human vanity. Last year’s hunt killed 37,609 seals including 1,700 ragged jackets (molting seals under 3 weeks old). Each year thousands of seals are clubbed and shot to death in Canada for their fur. This annual commercial seal hunt is the largest slaughter of marine mammals in the world. Thank you, Russia! With the Russian federation, Belarus and Kazakhstan joining a growing list of countries that have banned seal fur, it’s time for the Canadian government to finally end the commercial seal hunt. The above cruelty is practiced by only a tiny part of the human population, however, as human populations are rapidly rising, the atrocities committed by the small segment are rising also. This includes the numbers of people involved in dog fights, cock fights and bull fights, etc. Now let us get into the legitimate cruelty of factory farming. It is cruel and inhumane to grow chickens in long lines of stacked, tiny cubicles where they can barely move. It’s worse for calves whose movements are extremely limited in order to produce veal. And who would want to be that poor lobster jammed into a corner at the bottom of the pack in a tank in the supermarket? Adding population adds to more animal abuse! In the wild, animal life is in trouble. The tiger is disappearing; there are now

fewer tigers in the wild than are in captivity. To the people who complain about mountain lions in their neighborhoods, I counter with the fact that sprawling subdivisions have invaded and crowded out the lions. In the United States we lose acreage the equivalent of 4 1/2 Rhode Islands every year to development caused by population growth. At this rate who do you think will disappear after the wildlife? Last fall the earth’s population crossed the 7 billion mark. It took only 12 years to increase from 6 billion in 1999 and only 12 years before that to increase from 5 billion in 1987. Compare that with the length of time it took for the human population to jump from 1 billion in 1804 to 2 billion in 1927 (123 years) and you’ll see that we are experiencing a period of rapid population growth like the world has never seen. Readers, please ask yourselves, “Can you think of any problem on any scale, from microscopic to global, whose longterm solution is in any way aided, assisted or advanced by having larger populations at the local level, state level, nationally or globally? Can you think of anything that will get better if we crowd more people into our towns, cities, nations or world? How many people are enough?

2011 seems to have been a good year for pro-life cause To the editor: January 2012 marked the 39th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision known as Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion-on-demand. The National Right to Life Committee (NCLC) estimates that since that Landmark decision, over 54.5 million (54,559,615) American babies have died through legal abortion. It is a number that I find impossible to comprehend. How many scientists, artists, educators, musicians, philosophers, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters were among that number? The estimate is based upon data from the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Allan Guttmacher Institute (AGI), a research institute founded by Planned Parenthood of America. The CDC bases its numbers on data from the country’s 52 central health agenfrom preceding page

Nevertheless, we all hope for things, and life is filled with days where hope is all there is. We hope we’ll get better from this winter’s long and nasty cold. We hope that fuel prices won’t continue to rise and that our car will start again in the morning. Skiers and schoolchildren hope that it will snow, and many others hope for a sunny day and are glad for the brief, and prescient, tease that was the January thaw. So much of life in these unusual times is supremely unpredictable, so at times we hope for familiar signs among the changes. On the surface, having hope changes nothing, but it makes us feel better as we bob about, unmoored on life’s rough seas. We believe, as the novelist John Irving once titled a chapter in The Hotel New Hampshire, that “Hope floats.” Something more powerful is at work here, and it is in that place that I am

cies. AGI collects data directly from abortion providers and consistently shows higher numbers than the CDC. But, there is good news. The pro-life cause is gaining ground. Five states have reacted to Obamacare by restricting insurance coverage of abortion. Optout bills will be presented in more than 30 states. Seventy pro-life bills were passed in 2011. Ohio is leading in this effort with four bills being signed by pro-life Gov. John Kasich. No, Roe v. Wade hasn’t been overturned but 2011 seems to have been a good year for the pro-life cause. Pray for continuing success in these efforts. Pray for the mothers who have been so terribly victimized by the abortion industry. There is always forgiveness at the foot of the cross. Dolores Figuly Wolfeboro reminded of Conrad’s quiet wisdom. When we deeply believe that something will come to be, there is a level of energy that always accompanies that belief, an energy that actually does conspire to make things happen. Call it the power of positive thinking, or more simply, blind faith, here is a kind of force which has proven time and again to have enormous power in lifting us from where we are to where we wish, or where we long to be. Yes, it is still a reach to go from hungry to well-fed, from poor to well-off, or from sadness to a state of joy. But hope can become the seed of belief which sprouts and then transforms everything. Just as the deer slips across the field because she hopes, and thus believes, she will find food, so too, can we. Tim Scott, a Jackson resident, is the director of development at Fryeburg Academy.

DAVISON from page one

And regardless, he said, he doesn’t intend to change his behavior because he doesn’t think his behavior is out of line. “Some people might consider me obnoxious,” he said, but he doesn’t swear at games and he’s never been asked to leave. “I haven’t broken any laws.” He doesn’t dispute that he can be loud, but he said he considers himself “passionate.” When asked whether he believes his behavior at games has ever been inappropriate, he responded: “No, because I don’t go overboard.” Davison was, however, barred from Berlin school grounds earlier this year for an incident at a soccer game, an incident he maintains he was not at fault in. Questions about that incident, however, led to the acknowledgement by current and former school officials that this wasn’t the first time Davison’s behavior at games had been an issue. A number of former officials said there was a file full of complaints at the school, all of them pertaining to Davison’s antics on the sidelines. The Conway Daily Sun requested copies of those letters under the state’s Right To Know Law, which requires government bodies to function transparently, but school administrators denied the request after consulting their attorney. They cited privacy concerns as the reasons.

Randy Davison

The Sun then took the school to court, and judge Steven Houran ruled the Sun was entitled to the letters under the Right to Know Law, although identifying information about third parties and other information unrelated to Davison’s behavior could be redacted. Houran left an opening for the school or Davison to ask for reconsideration, but both have said they intend to let the ruling stand. The letters themselves should be available next week. At least some of their contents, however, were alluded to in Houran’s order. Several indicate administration offi-

cials were aware of the complaints, he said, and that Davison was spoken to about the matter at least twice. That fact — that administrators acknowledged privately there was a problem involving an elected official but were resistant to acknowledging the problem publicly — raises questions about just how complaints about elected school board members are handled, particularly when more than 20 pages of charges amass. Former school board chair George Fredette last fall acknowledged the board received complaints from other schools about Davison, and that he and Davison reached an informal agreement where Davison would maintain his composure more. None of that information was shared with the public at the time, at no point was it brought up during a public meeting, and it took a court case to convince the school to release those complaints. Several current school board members, meanwhile, said they were in the dark about how their administrators were handling the Sun’s request for the documents before the story hit the paper’s front page. This fall Dick Klement and Syndi White both said they learned about the matter when a Sun reporter mentioned the Right To Know request during public comments at a school board meeting. “We were looking at one another saying, 'What the heck is going on?'” Klement said. “I have concerns that I had to hear about it from a reporter,” White said. At the time — two weeks after the Sun made its request, and several days after superintendent Carl Nelson had mailed a letter denying that request — the board was still unaware of what the letters said. “Nobody on the board has looked at these documents,” school board chair Janine McLauchlin said back in November. In a few days, however, they will be available to the public, not just school board members, as per the judge’s order.

RAMSEY from page one

admits clutching his girlfriend by the throat and slapping her "hard" four or five times. But he denied shoving the curling iron down her throat and hitting her with it. Ramsey said he hit her with an open hand after she refused to continue speaking to him during an argument. The incident took place in his apartment's bathroom. She was preparing to leave and had just finished changing from her pajamas to street clothes. “I was frustrated,” Ramsey replied to a question from deputy county attorney Susan Boone about why he hit her. Ramsey, who works as a painter, testified he grabbed the victim by the throat and pushed her toward the tub. He said she stepped into the tub under her own power. Both Ramsey and the victim explained that they were spending the evening at his apartment. He offered to cook dinner because she wasn't feeling well. He met the victim at her apartment. Then they drove over to his apartment in her car. The victim's dog also came to Ramsey's apartment. However, the victim testified he had knocked her down so her body was perpendicular to the bathtub. She also said he beat hear for 20 to 30 minutes to the point were she was in and out of consciousness. She said he hurt her throat so badly she couldn't scream or speak normally for days. Ramsey said the attack was brief. Ramsey said he let the victim go and then walked back to the kitchen table. Ramsey said he brought her ice and a a glass of wine because he didn't want her to drive home while being so upset. He testified she was crying after he hit her. Ramsey said when he offered to leave the apartment, she said that wasn't necessary. He even gave her a knife to make her feel secure. Ramsey testified that before she left they gathered her possessions together. see next page

Public defender Howard Clayman and two witnesses stressed repeatedly that sound travels easily through Ramsey's apartment building. Had the attack been as savage as the victim described, surely someone would have called police, Clayman argued. Clayman also argued it's hard to believe the victim would continue using the curling iron for several days had she really had it rammed down her throat. A doctor found no damage to her vocal chords when he examined her nine days after the attack. "What she said didn't happen," said Clayman during closing remarks But assistant county attorney Stephen Murray argued the victim was merely trying to put on a "brave face" after the attack. Murray also said Clayman couldn't prove anyone else was in the apartment building that night. Clayman said the curling iron would have done more damage had Ramsey really rammed it down her throat. But the prosecution said the victim's body healed in the nine-day period between the attack and when the victim saw a doctor. Both sides acknowledged the victim didn't involve police until Dec. 21. During that period before police got involved, Ramsey and the victim traded numerous text messages on their cell phones. Ramsey seemed to alternate between being apologetic and angry at the victim. In one text message exchange during the night of the attack, the victim described how she hoped she wouldn't be badly bruised in the morning. The defense provided photos of the victim which showed bruises on her face, scalp and arms. Ramsey replied twice with the curse, "F--- you." In another series of text messages, the victim reports to Ramsey that he left bruises all over her body. Murray noted that Ramsey never challenged the victim by saying he

merely slapped her in the face and held her throat. In another text series, the victim said she was in lots of pain and Ramsey replied that he was in lots of pain too. "It's always about the defendant and never about (the victim)," said Murray, editorializing about Ramsey's text messages. On Dec. 21, Ramsey sent a text that read in part that he wished he finished what he started the week before. Murray described the text as a thinly veiled threat on her life, and the victim said this text was what finally prompted her to call police. "Why did he send those text messages? Murray asked the jury. "The text messages, like the savage attack, were an attempt to maintain control over (the victim.)" Clayman and Ramsey himself said that text was meant to show that he wanted to stop communicating. Further, Clayman added that text messages are quick communications and usually not well thought out. Murray said during the night of the attack the victim had a "survival strategy" of waiting for Ramsey to calm down. "Who knows what would have happened had she run for the door?" said Murray. "That survival strategy lasted the entire week following the event."

According to the written statement, the call began around 2 p.m. Thursday when someone reported an agitated man had thrown a television out an apartment window. When two officers arrived they found a television and other items in the yard and driveway below the apartment. Ballou, who lives in the building, was screaming obscenities and breaking glass in the apartment. The officers entered the building and began negotiating with Ballou from the second floor. Ballou threw weight-lifting plates, knives and other items at the officers from a bedroom on the third floor. “As additional units arrived, Ballou jumped or

He was immediately aided by police and rescue personnel.” Ballou was taken to Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted. By 4:30 p.m., however, he was on his way to a larger hospital. Police, meanwhile, got a search warrant and searched the residence. They seized evidence and documented the damage, which, according to the statement, is estimated to be thousands of dollars. No charges against Ballou had been filed by Thursday afternoon, but police said the case remains open, and charges are expected to follow.

Incumbent faces two challengers for Bartlett selectman BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BARTLETT — A three-year seat on the board of selectmen is the lone contested race on both the town and school ballots. Incumbent Doug Garland filed Friday on the final day for people to declare their candidacy. He is seeking a fifth term, but for the first time he is being challenged. Ed Furlong and Erik Corbett, neither whom have held public office in town, are vying for the seat. Corbett ran for selectman last year and finished second in a three-way race, won by David A. Patch. Furlong, owner of Lil’ Man Snowmobile and Abenaki Cabin Rentals in Bartlett Village, began campaigning for the 2012 Bartlett selectman’s race last September when he publicly announced his candidacy. Other town positions include: For planning board (three years, vote for two) — incumbent Julia King and Margaret Lavender. Trustees of the trust funds (three years, vote for one) — incumbent Beverly Shaw. Library trustee (three years, vote for two) — incumbent Beverly Sarapin and Judy Shuman. Town moderator (two years, vote for one) — incumbent Rob Clark. Supervisor of the checklist (six years, vote for one) —incumbent Elaine Ryan. Town auditor (one year, vote for one) — no one filed. Positions on the Bartlett Zoning Board of Adjustment and the conservation commission are appointed by the selectmen and are not elected positions. Candidates on the school ballot: For member of the school board (three years, vote for two) — incumbents Rob Clark and Michael Murphy. For school moderator (one year, vote for one) — incumbent Jim Miller. For school clerk (one year, vote for one) — incumbent Gail Paine.

Annual Bartlett School Meeting will take place March 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the gymnasium at the Josiah Bartlett Elementary School.

Benesh and Thompson file for selectman in Jackson BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

JACKSON — There will be a new face at the selectmen's meeting in late March. Incumbent Bea Davis did not file for a third term on the board last week when filing for town and school offices concluded on Friday. The vacant seat did attract interest, however, as former school board member Bob Thompson and Frank Benesh have thrown their hats in the ring for the three-year position. There would have been three candidates for the seat, but sadly Paul Belluche, who filed for the office, died unexpectedly Feb. 1. He was 73. Jackson town clerk Jeanette Heidmann said town officials looked up the state law to see what to do about Belluche's candidacy and found out his name could be removed from the ballot. It would have been his second time seeking the office. In 2009, Davis ran a successful write-in campaign defeating Belluche, the lone candidate on the ballot for the seat, 170-146. There are no other contested races on either the town or school office side. Voting will take place on Tuesday, March 13 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Whitney Center. Town and school meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 15, also at the Whitney Center at 7 p.m.

That was in 2000. Not a very leisurely thing to do, but the Jackson couple have always been active, ever since they first met in school in upstate New York. “We knew each other in high school, but we actually didn't date until we came home from college,� said Shirley. Phil chimes in from there: “Shirley was dating a friend of mine, and he and I went to have a milk shake in town when we came home from college. We got to talking about our relationships. We were both kind of outgrowing the people we were dating. I made a bet with him that I could get a date with Shirley faster than he could get a date with Mary Lou, whom I was dating,� he laughed. Phil was right: He got the date, but what's more, he got to marry Shirley a year later in 1956. She graduated from nursing school, and helped support them during his senior year at Cornell, where he majored in agriculture while rowing for the school's championship crew team. After working on his family's 450-acre dairy farm in upstate New York, Phil got involved at the Peek 'N Peak ski area. He next worked at the state-run Gore Ski Area in New York, later became general manager at Loon Mountain from 1977 to 1991, worked for the state of New Hampshire at Cannon, and came to Attitash in 1992. He was president of the National Ski Areas Association, and numerous family vacations were centered around association meetings. Three children and seven grandchildren later, they are still getting the most out of life, skiing four days a week, having family gatherings at their Jackson home and their summer lake place in Bridgton, and cycling with friends. Phil recently was named as a member of the 2011 Class of the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame with former valley Olympian Tyler Palmer. Shirley was a visiting nurse in their time in Lincoln and has been the typical soccer and ski-racing mom, bringing up the kids and holding down the fort at home while Phil attended countless planning and ski meetings. Shirley and Phil says their relationship is based on respect and friendship. “Back in our hometown,� related Shirley, “the min-

ister's wife — who is is a good friend of mine — once told me when I said that Phil was working a lot of hours at Peek 'N Peak and that he was never home, that I should 'love him, don't judge him.' There have been many times over the years where I had to say that.� “Shirley and I are a team,� said Phil, saying she has always been his best asset. “In our Lincoln days, Shirley was a visiting nurse, and she knew so many people in town because she had been in their homes, helping to treat patients. At Loon, we were growing leaps and bounds. We were tied up with all sorts of things, including getting the approvals for South Mountain and it required a lot of special town meetings. I would always sit Shirley down in front — she won more votes for me, a lot of them cliffhangers.� Phil says Shirley helped him pass the test at Loon when he came for a job interview with the late and legendary Sherman Adams, the crusty former governor of New Hampshire and former chief of staff for President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Apparently, Adams — who was getting on in years — had struck out twice in finding a suitable general manager at Loon, mostly because their wives did not find tiny Lincoln to be cosmopolitan enough. “I got the invite for the interview to come over from New York, but Gov. Adams told me I'd better bring my wife,� said Phil, in one of the couple's more humorous shared stories of how Team Shirley and Phil works best. “When we arrived at the meeting,� beamed Phil, “Gov. Adams took a look at Shirley and walked up to her and said, 'Just what makes you think that a woman from New York like you would be happy in Lincoln?' Shirley smiled and said, 'Gov. Adams, I'm so looking forward to it, because I've never lived in a town as big as Lincoln.' � “I was offered the job that night,� said Phil. Regarding their love, he said, “We don't go to bed with any misunderstandings. Honestly, we can count the times on one hand in 56 years of marriage where we have gone to bed with a downright argument.� “Phil does the business side of things,� said Shirley, which led Phil to laugh, “She's in charge at home. No question.� *** The Conway Daily Sun is profiling a few local couples in the days leading to the paper's annual “Love in the Sun" Valentine's Day edition Feb. 14.

Valley Green Tips

Green tips for the hopeless romantic As he stood waiting for her to answer the door, he was a little nervous that she’d think his gift was cheap or corny. It had seemed like a great idea earlier, but now he was starting to have doubts. Would she be disappointed that it wasn’t something more traditional? Should he forget the whole thing? If he hid it in the snow bank now, would she notice it as they walked to the car on their way to dinner? When she heard the bell ring, she was standing in front of the mirror for one last check, pleased that the dress she’d found at a local consignment boutique was such a perfect fit, but suddenly questioning if secondhand clothes could jinx a first date. What if this dress had belonged to an ex-girlfriend, or his mother? But there was no time to change now. She took a deep breath and opened the door. They met each other’s gaze and smiled. He said, “Wow. You look stunning. Here, I brought you something,” and he handed her the Mason jar filled with flower seeds he’d collected from his garden at the end of the growing season. He had tied a red ribbon around the top and attached a hand written note. She read it aloud, “Valentine, let’s see what blooms.” So what are your big plans for Valentine’s Day? Whether it’s a quiet evening with your sweetheart, girls’ night out on the town, or folding laundry while eating chocolate and watching Netflix streaming, here are some Green Tips from the Mount Washington Valley Green Team: 1. Say it with (green) flowers: A lot of energy goes into the industrial production and importation of flowers. If you are shopping for them, make a conscious selection, consider their carbon footprint, the distance they have traveled and the pesticides used to make them perfect. Support organic suppliers that practice sustainable farming. Talk to your local florist for advice on the

greenest choices and their own green efforts. While you are there, ask if they accept empty vases for re-use. Many florists around the country have started re-use and recycling programs and will gladly take the collection you have stashed under your kitchen sink or in your utility closet. (How many do you really need to keep on hand?) 2. Give a green card: Nothing says “romance” quite like an e-card. If you think your valentine would prefer something more tangible, look for cards printed on recycled paper. Feeling creative? Make your own out of stuff you already have at home. Better yet, write a haiku on the bathroom mirror (in something that will wash off). 3. Chocolate: Everybody loves it. Ideally, it would all be locally made with certified organic, fair trade ingredients. Keep that in mind when choosing chocolate. 4. Dining out? If your eyes are usually bigger than your stomach, as mine are, plan ahead: No matter where you eat, or what the occasion, packing in your own take-home container is more chic than any designer handbag. Consider making your dinner reservations at one of New Hampshire’s ‘Environmental Champions’, certified by the New Hampshire Sustainable Lodging and Restaurant Program. If you are a restaurant or resort owner in the valley, be recognized for your green efforts by applying for certification. Learn more about the program at 5. Planning an overnight rendezvous? Stay at one of the valley’s ‘Certified Sustainable’ lodging locations. These properties are committed to protecting and preserving the beauty of our state by reducing energy needs, conserving water, and reducing waste. Do you know who they are? Check out the list at http:// 6. Remember, money can’t buy you

love, so consider giving the greenest gift of all: Unplug your electronics, shut off your gadgets, declare it a power-out night and offer your sweetheart your undivided, uninterrupted attention. And if you are on your own this year, don’t despair, treat yourself well, spring is coming, plant some seeds... Julie Lanoie is a blogger at www.

White Birch Books to host Brian Fowler Thursday CONWAY — White Birch Books located in North Conway Village just south of the park, across from TD Bank, is hosting a presentation by geologist Brian Fowler on Thursday, Feb. 16, starting at 6:30 p.m. Fowler recently published a one-ofa-kind map, “The Surficial Geology of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range.” Fowler has a slide presentation that presents, in layman’s terms, his work as a field geologist and the mapping of the surface geology of the Presidential Range. The presentation is free and open to the public. Surficial geology is the scientific study of deposits occurring on or near the surface, including soils. Fowler’s new map is a compilation of 45 years of field work done independently over the years as well as in cooperation with the U.S. and N.H. Geological Surveys. The map depicts and interprets the geological deposits and features that overly the bedrock beneath the Presidential Range. Although not a trail map, it can certainly be used while hiking to differentiate the places that modern geologic theories are made of. Fowler is a consulting geologist with many years of hiking and working in the White Mountains, including many years as a trustee and president of the Mountain Washington Observatory. For more information about the event, or to reserve a copy of “The Surficial Geology of Mountain Washington and the Presidential Range,” call White Birch Books at 356-3200.

Great acting brings Mamet's 'Glengarry' to life BY ALEC KERR


CONWAY — Following an awardwinning 2007 production of “Glengarry Glen Ross,” M&D Productions is taking another crack at David

Mamet’s play with the same director, Dennis O’Neil, and largely the same cast. “The reason we want to do it again is because we want to do it at our [Your Theatre] space,” Mark DeLancey, the executive director of M&D, said. Their

2007 production was done at the less intimate stage at the Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse. This new production, which opened Feb. 9 and is running Thursday through Saturday for the next three see next page

Arts Council of Tamworth presents the U.S. Air Force Band of Liberty New England Winds Sunday, Monday TAMWORTH — Arts Council of Tamworth is delighted to present the United States Air Force Band of Liberty New England Winds playing a full concert on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. at St. Andrew’s-in-the-Valley in Tamworth and a mini-concert with a question and answer session at 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 13, at the K.A. Brett School. Airman First Class Carolyn Sierichs on flute, Airman First Class Kathleen Tennyson on oboe, Staff Sergeant Mickey Ireland on clarinet and Staff Sergeant Christopher Stahl on bassoon will present a program featuring something for all musical tastes: popular, Broadway, patriotic, jazz and folk music, as

well as pieces from the traditional woodwind quintet repertoire. The repertoire on Sunday afternoon will include works by Strauss, Albeniz, Debussy, Gershwin, and Sousa, and a new work by Alyssa Morris, and the concert will be followed by a reception—a great opportunity to meet and talk to these fine musicians. Both concerts are free and open to the public. Every member of the quintet is a dedicated chamber player with years of study on his or her instrument. As professional military musicians, The United States Air Force Band of Liberty, based at Hanscom Air Force Base in Massachusetts, is dedicated to using the power of music to

inspire our Air Force members and the great nation we serve, producing innovative musical programs and products, and communicating Air Force excellence throughout New England and around the globe. Visit for a link to a free download of a full album of music by the New England Winds, to donate to Arts Council of Tamworth, or for more information, or call 323-8104.

weeks, takes advantage of the intimacy of the theater to help create the claustrophobic atmosphere of Mamet’s look at the dark side of real estate salesmen. The new production also adds the opening scene that Mamet wrote for the 1992 film that wasn’t in the original play. This scene, the film’s most famous and oft-referenced, featured Alec Baldwin as a big shot brought in by the unseen owners of the shady real estate office to motivate the salesmen. He presents them with a cruel sales contest, the losers of which are rewarded with a pink slip. In writing the screen version of the play it was as if Mamet saw a way to improve his own show. It is a heck of an opening scene that helps clarify everything that follows. It ups the stakes for the characters and gives the reason for their desperation. Director O’Neil takes on the Baldwin role himself and delivers the iconic monologue with vigor. Mamet’s dialogue is laden with profanity, but it is also very sharp and observant of human nature, particularly the way men interact. He writes the way everyone wishes they could speak. Those clever things you think of saying hours after a conversation, Mamet has his characters think

of in the moment. The characters of “Glengarry Glen Ross” are more akin to con artists than real estate agents. They present the land they sell as the American dream, but the land is rotten and so is the dream. The way Ricky Roma (Kevin O’Neil) manipulates a possible client (Dan Phelps) is slimy and deplorable and yet, at the same time, you see the tremendous pressure put on these men as personified by the character Shelly Levene (Ken Martin). Levene, a former hot-shot salesman, hasn’t had a sale in months and holds onto past glories to justify his existence. In the first scene following the prologue he desperately begs office manager John Williamson (Tom O’Reilly) for some good leads. Martin does fine work portraying a man who is barely holding onto his dignity. The structure of the show is interesting, too. The first act is broken up into three separate scenes each with two men interacting. Each scene is forcefully driven by one of the actors, with the other taking a reactive role. This give-and-take dynamic is most amusing in the scene between Scott Katrycz as the loud- mouth schemer Dave Moss and Andrew Brosnan as the mousy George Aaronow. Aaronow can barely get a word in, but Moss keeps saying “You’re right!” more

or less to his own statements. The scene takes an unexpected dark turn that Katrycz and Brosnan play nicely. The second act of the show shifts to an office setting and becomes an ensemble piece that pays off on everything set up in the previous one-on-one scenes. There’s very often two or three conversations going on at once and the dense overlapping dialogue is performed with precision by the entire cast. Set designer Deborah Jasien, once again, creates not one, but two, impressive sets. Act one has a rotating Chinese restaurant set that spins around between scenes to reveal the next pair of actors. When the curtain comes up for act two, the restaurant is gone and an entirely believable office set is in its place. Since director O’Neil and his cast are returning to this material, it is clear they’re very comfortable with it. There are complex shifts in tones going on here, but the show always feels focused and well paced. It is testament to the caliber of Mamet’s writing that suspense is created through dialogue alone. These actors match that writing and create characters that we both detest and empathize with at the same time. For more information or tickets call the box office at 662-7591.

Valentine’s, speed chairlift dating and more BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

We learned this week that our Happy Valley was named one of the Top 25 classic ski towns in the world, as rated by National Geographic. We'll have more on that story for our Saturday edition — in the meantime, visit adventure/trips/best-ski-towns. MEISTERS THRIVE: Speaking of living in one of the best ski towns in the world, conditions could not have been finer for Week 5 of Cranmore Mountain Meisters, and the bluebird skies continued Thursday and were expected to continue into the weekend, according to I missed racing in Week 4, but it was great to take to the course for Week 5 and to see everyone using the Zips Grille and Pub area once again, now that Cranmore management has

made the smart move to put things back as they once were, thus allowing Meisters to congregate and be merry, just as they have been for 40 years. While there at the base, I ran into such old friends as spiritual and spirited Thorn Hill Spa masseuse Jody Kenney, the ever-tanned Becky Armstrong, Joseph Spaghetti Shed's new do-sporting Beth Carta-Dolan, smooth-skiing Outside TV cameraman Hans Bauer, telemarking Larry Huemmler of Lucy's Hardware, and many other Meisters who keep the Meisters flame burning bright in this ski-minded community. There at Zip's Grille, David Bernier of the North Conway Water Precinct echoed a comment once made to me by fleet skiing Steve Briggs, when he said that Meisters is not about ski racing: it's about seeing friends. Along with King Pine's Pioneer Series on Mondays, Great Glen's

Nordic Meisters and Attitash's Race League on Tuesdays, and Shawnee Pea's and Bretton Woods' series, Cranmore Mountain Meisters is all about that. If you get a good race time in the gates, well, that's just gravy. It's the largest weekly recreational league in the country, and here at The Sun, we're happy to be part of it. At the top of the course, I enjoyed speaking with such old pals such as original pioneering Meister staffer Eric Styffe, Phil and Bobby Haynes, former pro racer Kevin Clarke (whos sporting soem sore ribs from a sidewalk shoveling fall) Dave Clancy, and yes, Ian Meserve, who was in the race shack, helping out, despite the resumption of his radiation treatments in Sanford, Maine — and, of course, after his incredible trip to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis last weekend. As reported in Thursday's paper, the trip was donated by the dad of one of

Ian's ski racing pupils. The efforts for Ian's family continue this weekend with “Ian's Endless Hockey Game,” at the Ham Arena Saturday night and Sunday morning Feb. 11 and 12. Ian's Endless Hockey Game is being organized by friend and fellow hockey player Doug Holmes, Meserve's cousin Mandy Manoogian and the Ham staff. Yours truly — a former teammate of Ian's — is hoping to play a shift with Ian, if things work out by playing in the first game at 8:20 p.m. Saturday.

“The Descendants” is a film that feels real from the way characters interact to their emotions. It is an entertaining film that includes moments with the power to move as well as some big laughs. This is a film that may hit too close too home for some viewers and this may be what causes a disconnect from the picture. Set in Hawaii, the film centers on Clooney’s Matt King, a distant, but loving husband and father of two daughters, dealing with a wife in a coma who will die if taken off life support. He now must inform friends and family about his wife’s inevitable death, but that’s not all that is on his plate. Matt’s eldest daughter Alexandra (Shailene Woodley) informs him that his wife was cheating on him. This creates deeply mixed emotions in both father and daughter. They are both grieving the loss, but at the same time are full of anger toward her. Father and daughter set out to find the man (Matthew Lillard) that was seeing their wife/mother. Along for the ride is Sid (Nick Krause), Alexandra’s boyfriend. She wants him there for moral support. At first he seems like nothing more than a dimwitted punk, but as the film progresses it becomes clear why Alexandra wants him there. Oh, but there’s more. The title refers to Matt and his many cousins being the descendants of former Hawaiian kings. It is up to Matt to decide what to do with the last bit of land still entrusted to them. This may seem like an overly busy plot or fodder for a harried screwball comedy, but director and co-writer Alexander Payne finds a delicate balance. Life can be like this. Tragedy can strike at the most inconvenient times and you must deal with it all. As was true with his other films “Election,” “Sideways” and “About

Schmidt,” Payne has a way of writing dialogue that feels authentic. His characters are intelligent and well spoken, but don’t speak in forced movie dialogue. The story never becomes schmaltzy, trite or overly manipulative. As a director he gets performances that are grounded in real emotion. With material like this it could be easy to have big, over-the-top performance. That isn’t the case here. The performances are balanced, controlled and well measured. Clooney gives a quiet, subtle performance. Some may unjustly hold Clooney’s looks against him as if a man in Matt’s position couldn’t look like Clooney. The performance speaks for itself, though. There are several moments in the film that simply focus on Clooney's face and he says more in silence than he could with a whole monologue. He captures Matt’s emotional turmoil and struggle to connect with his daughters Woodley, who stars in the TV show “The Secret Life of the American Teen,” brings depth that her TV work never even hinted at. Like Clooney she must juggle complex shifting emotions of hurt and anger and she handles it gracefully. The rest of the cast is also superb. Amara Miller, in her first acting job, as the youngest daughter holds her own with Clooney and Woodley and gives a believable and complete performance. Lillard, who is known for goofy comic performances, gives a surprisingly effective dramatic turn. Judy Greer, Robert Forrester and Beau Bridges do solid work as Lillard's wife, a grandfather and cousin respectively. This may seem like a downer of a movie, but it isn’t. There is sadness in this story to be true, but it also finds laughs that are never exploitative. It may not be for everyone, but for those who get on its wavelength, it is a film that is warm, tender, funny and thoughtful.

Winter waltz party at Eagle Mountain House on Feb. 11

This Saturday's winter waltz party, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Eagle Mountain House's Carriage House, promises to be a delightful evening, as well as a terrific benefit for our local community orchestra! The evening is nearly sold out at only $30 apiece, so to buy your ticket, contact Mountain Top Music at 447-4737. The evening's entertainment includes waltz, fox trot, and other dance music, plus Imari and the Sahara Desert Dancers; also featured will be delectable chocolates, and a rich and exciting array of Silent Auction items, such as sparkly earrings and scarves, Uberblast, Conway Scenic Railroad, and Story Land tickets, golf greens fees for North Conway Country Club and the Wentworth course, Russ Lanoie's compost, a variety of books and artwork, plus a special collection of travel opportunities with many offered at super prices. Also, thank the three presenting sponsors for bringing this fun event to Jackson: The Shovel Handle Pub, Wildcat Tavern, and The Eagle Mountain House all make it possible for us to hold this fundraiser.

Free dance at Whitney Center Friday Come for the dance at the Whitney Center this Friday, Feb. 9, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Bring dance shoes and favorite CDs to dance to. Refreshments served. Admission is free. A chance to brush up on waltz skills before the big Eagle Mountain event. Friends of the Library seeks directors The Friends of the Jackson Public Library is seeking people interested in serving as directors/officers or general board members. The Friends act as an advocacy and fundraising arm in support of the Library. They send out an annual appeal letter, run the Memorial Day Weekend book sale, and provide some program planning for the Library. They provide money for materials beyond our budgeted amounts, offer financial support for some grants, and in general strive to make the Library the best that it can be. If you love the library, and would be willing to serve on the board or as an officer, contact Joanne Corcoran, Friends president at 3830957 or Susan at the Library 383-9731. Town of Jackson budget hearing today The selectmen will hold a public budget hearing for public input on the proposed 2012 municipal budget and warrant articles on Feb. 9 at 4 p.m. in the town office, at 54 Main Street in Jackson. If the Feb. 9 budget hearing is canceled due to inclement weather the alternate budget hearing date will be Feb. 16 at 5 p.m., following the Selectmen’s meeting scheduled for 4 p.m.

Valentine’s Dinner Friday,Feb.1 0

Town Office closed today The office of the Jackson town clerk/tax collector will be closed on Feb. 9 due to a scheduling conflict requiring both clerks to be out of town.

Library computer classes The library is planning to change in how computer classes are offered. Seven people attended a Kindle class in January, so it seems that it would be better for all to offer classes by appointment. The number of people attending can affect productivity, and there can be a variety of devices. For example, in the Kindle class, out of those seven people attending, were at least four different Kindle models represented. Each model has its own quirks and specific details, so Susan was racing around trying to help people who weren't necessarily getting the best information. The same classes will be available, only you'll need to call to schedule. The classes cover using the state's downloadable book site for eBooks using different devices such as Nooks, Kindles and iPads and Audio books. Call to make an appointment to get started borrowing books for free. Nook and a Kindle book loans The library will soon be offering the Nook and a Kindle for patrons to check out for a two week loan period. They are hammering out the procedures and hope to have them available in March. You can read a few magazines on them as well as books. They are great to take on a trip! You will be able to request a book on Overdrive and come in when it's ready to be downloaded onto either eReader. You could also purchase a book (they will actually do it for you with your payment) and then you'll get to read what you want, when you want it, and in the process enable the Library to expand their eBook collection for the future enjoyment of other patrons. You can see this is a little complicated, and therefore will take some time to get it ironed out. Wanted: Handcart or dolly The staff at the library could really use a handcart or dolly to use to move boxes of books around. If you have one in your barn or garage that you're not using, they would love to take it off your hands. Along similar lines, they are looking for ground floor storage space for the storage of book sale books. Mike Mallett very kindly allows provides storage on the second level of the old Red Fox building, but during the winter it isn't as accessible, so does anyone in town have a nice, dry, ground level storage that could be accessed during reasonable hours of the day? Please speak to Susan at the library if you have ideas.

News is spreading about a not yet implemented executive decision to close the South Tamworth Post Office. Last week a segment aired on WMUR, featuring South Tamworth Post Office patrons Katy Thompson, Kate Vachon, Lianne Prentice and Don Hutchinson, all of whom expressed strong feelings in favor of keeping the facility open. An article in the Laconia Citizen, mentioned South Tamworth resident Mark Stowbridge whose wife, Sue, ran the post office for many years. He feels that its closure would be a great loss to South Tamworth. The post office has 62 boxes and serves 54 households. There are two employees: one full time and one part time. There is concern about how a closure would affect local residents, in particular the elderly. Petitions are available to be signed at local stores. District 3 State Representative Mark McConkey has offered his support in fighting the closure. Start off the weekend with a pancake breakfast at The Community School in South Tamworth served until 10 a.m. Everyone 12 and over pays $7, under 12 pay $3 and 2 and under are free. Funds raised will finance educational spring trips. Tamworth village will be very event filled this weekend so you might as well plan on spending most of the day in the village. The second Tamworth Farmers “Deep Winter” market will be held at the Tamworth Town House on Main Street in Tamworth village from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11, featuring local meat, milk, cheeses, yogurt, sourdough bread, baked goods, maple syrup, vegetables, herbal salves and creams, jams, jellies and art by Tamworth Artisans.

Davis named candidate in presidential scholars program Meghan Davis, a senior at Kennett High School, has been named one of 3,000 candidates in the 2012 U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. The candidates were selected from nearly 3.2 million students expected to graduate from U.S. high schools in this spring. Inclusion in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program, now in its 48th year, is one of the highest honors bestowed upon high school seniors. Scholars are selected on the basis of superior academic and artistic achievements, leadership qualities, strong character and involvement in community and school activities. The 3,000 candidates were selected for their exceptional performance on either the College Board SAT or the ACT Assessment. Further consideration is based on students’ essays, self-assessments, descriptions of activities, school recommendations, and school transcripts. A distinguished panel of educators will review these submissions and select 500 semifinalists in early April. The Commission on Presidential Scholars, a group of some 32 eminent citizens appointed by the president, will make final selection of the scholars. They will select one young man and one young woman from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U.S. students living abroad; 15 students at-large; and up to 20 students from the creative and performing arts. The U.S. Department of Education will announce the scholars in May. Scholars will be invited to Washington, DC, for several days in June to receive the Presidential Scholars Medallion at a recognition ceremony and to participate in events and activities with their elected representatives, educators, and other leading individuals in public life. Meghan Davis is the daughter of Cindy and Michael Davis of Freedom.

Pollock’s photography of the White Mountains is wonderful and lis-

tening to him speak of them while on view may just qualify as a hike, thus fulfilling your new year’s resolution to get out and get more exercise. Nath’s poetry is a bit difficult to describe, but having been able to hear him recite over the last few years allows your reporter to say that there is often more to it than meets the ear on the first hearing. His verse is not your normal picturesque poetry. Most of the imagery created is subservient to the state nature finds herself in these days. Nath is a thoughtful man and his poetry’s beauty reflects not just nature but his nature as well. Here are some events sponsored by the Green Mountain Conservation group for the month of February: Wednesday, Feb. 15, birding workshop at Sandwich Central School from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Come learn the common feeder birds of the Ossipee Watershed and how to identify them.

Count birds for at least fifteen minutes in your backyard, out on the trail, or anywhere else you can find them. Tally the amount of birds you see and submit your check list online at gbbcApps/input or to our office. Saturday, Feb. 25, late winter bald eagle count. Location TBA (to be announced).

Eagles close out indoor track season at Dartmouth –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


CONWAY — The Kennett High boys and girls indoor track team closed the book on another successful season Sunday with a few Eagles participating in the New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association’s Division II Indoor Track and Field Championship in the Leverone Field House on the campus of Dartmouth College in Hanover. “We had a good time,” Bernie Livingston, Eagles’ head coach, said. “The meet itself was a quick one, we got down pretty quickly. We a good day result wide. Everyone ran or jumped really well, which was a nice way to end the season with the kids doing their best against the best competition in the state.” There were 17 athletes in each event with over 20 schools from across

the Granite State competing. Bedford took team honors for the girls with 75 points while Milford took second with 39 and Hanover and Monadnock finished tied for third with 36 points. Super sophomore Gigi Miller, who set the school record the week before in the final State Meet Qualifier at the University of New Hampshire in the 55 meter dash (she ran 7.4 twice to eclipse Victoria Weigold’s previous best of 7.5), finished seventh overall on Sunday in the Championships, running 7.7 in the finals (7.76 in the preliminary heat). “Everything was electronically timed so the times were a little slower than the week before,” Livingston said. “Gigi ran great, it was right around her best time ever. She’s only a sophomore, she has quite a future.” The girls 55 meter dash was won by Natalie Bilynsky, of Oyster River, in a


FRYEBURG — The Ice Cats started the second half of their 18-game schedule Saturday night against Westbrook, and prevailed 1-0 and Coach John Moran believes they may have turned a corner. The Cats’ effort impressed their coach. “This was definitely the very best three periods of hockey that the Ice Cats have played this year,” he said. “We put together three solid periods and skated faster, hungrier. We’ve seen bright spots for periods of time, but never for three periods like this.” Moran searched for an understanding. “I wish I had an explanation for why it all came together, but I don’t. This was a real turning point though. Everybody on the ice left everything they had on the ice.” The Ice Cats and Westbrook struggled back and forth for two periods without scoring. The continually improving Cats’ defense kept Westbrook off the scoreboard while the offense tried to find the net. Goalie Topi Laakso made 35 stops on the night for a shutout. Moran noted Laakso’s performance, “I can’t say enough. He took

everything they could possibly throw at him. He currently has a 97 percent save percentage. He is hot right now. He is an incredibly modest guy too and a real tone setter for the team. He stays calm all the time. He is as steady as a rock.” Despite their impeccable defensive effort, the Raiders could not get on the board themselves until the middle of the third period. A little past the midpoint of the period, TJ Leach cruised across the high slot and the Westbrook defense collapsed a little. Leach took advantage and skated lower and continued across the front of the net, waited for the Westbrook goalie to be screened, and snapped a laser wrist shot into the net. Evan Kellough assisted. Moran said of the goal, “It was a classic TJ goal. He has done that several times this year.” The goal provided the difference in the 1-0 win. The Cats’ outstanding penalty killing and defense allowed them to survive being out shot. Laakso had 35 saves in the shutout. Now 5-7, the Cats are back in action tomorrow when they host Gorham (6-6) at Bridgton Arena at 7:15 p.m.

Annual Red Parka Pub Junior Challenge Ski Race is Feb. 16 BARTLETT — The Red Parka Steakhouse & Pub in Glen, Frosty’s Ski Shop and Attitash will host the 23rd Annual Red Parka Junior Challenge Race on Feb. 16. This is a free race held for middle school students from area schools. Race time is 11 a.m. with two runs each on the recreational course. In 1989, the first race had three schools and 37 students participating. Today, 11 schools and over 175

racers compete for individual trophies for boys and girls as well as a team trophy, kept at the winning school for the year. Last year’s winner – Kennett Jr. High, will be fighting to keep the trophy out of the hands of schools from Gilford, Belmont, Kingswood, Josiah Bartlett Elementary School and others. For more information, call Terry O’Brien at 383-4344.

blazing 7.28. Other Kennett girls competing included sophomore Gracie Ryan, who was battling sickness, finished ninth in the long jump with leap of 14’10.75” (her career best is 15’5.75”). The girls long jump was won by Monadnock junior Michaela Athanasopoulos, who edged her twin sister, Jenna, by 1.75 inches in 16’3.75”. The Kennett girls also competed in the 4X200 meter relay. Running for the Eagles, who finished ninth in 1:55.26, were Ryan, Miller, Shelby Hill and Hannah Kaslow. In the boys meet, Souhegan took team honors with 87 points followed by Oyster River, 60, and Merrimack Valley rounded out the top three with 30 points. Individually for Kennett, senior Michael Albert, who won his qualifying heat in the 55 meters in 6.87 seconds, was seventh in the finals, running an identical time. The boys 55 meter dash was won by Etahn Druskat, a senior at Oyster River in 6.49 seconds. Albert, leaves KHS as the school record-holder in the indoor 55-meter dash and as part of the 4X160 relay team, and holder of the new school mark in the 300 meter run. “Michael won his heat to make it to the finals — he ran awesome,” Livingston said. “We always say the trials are the finals because if you don’t run well there you don’t get into the finals. (Albert) has had just a terrific career

for us.” Fellow senior Peter Haine came within the blink of an eye of finishing sixth in the 1000 meters. He was seventh in a new personal best time of 2:48.93. “Peter had an outstanding run,” Livingston said. “He rebounded from just a terrible start after someone fell in front of him. Like Michael (Albert), Peter has meant an awful lot to this program.” The boys 1000 meters was won by Jonathan Vinnenberg, a senior at Bow, who ran 2:32.40 to win by over two and a half seconds. The Kennett boys were 13th overall in the 4X200 meter relay in 1:44.84. Running for the Eagles were Austin Weber, Brian Caputo, Michael Mason and Albert. “Michael ran out of his mind,” Livingston said. “He ran the last leg in 23.1 and never looked better. He runs so well from behind.” Souhegan won the boys 4X200 meter relay in 1:35.84. “I was really proud of how our athletes competed,” Livingston said. “None of the kids came unglued in the competition phase and everyone represented themselves, their school and community with dignity. “I think the success from this season will carry over outdoors in the spring,” he said. “Everyone seems to be in a good frame of mind, no one is burned out. They’ll all be ready to go in five or six more weeks.”

By Holiday Mathis though you are a strong individual, right now you are also quite impressionable. Use this to your advantage. Surround yourself with the kind of people you want to be more like. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Something is not working in your daily routine, and this may be causing you to feel tired or unwell. This is an easy fix once you pinpoint the exact problem. Greater health and vitality will soon be yours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll work on your mindset and make a conscious effort to think like a winner. Your mental take on things will have an effect on how you look, the way you carry yourself and how convincing you are to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Follow-through is a strength of yours. You’ll commit fully to whatever action you take. And because you are feeling impulsive now, you might not think it through first. Luckily, your instincts won’t steer you wrong. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A former sweetie may romanticize about your past together, or an old pal might want to gab with you about the good old days. Gently nudge everyone into the present because there’s a lot of good in what’s going on now. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 10). It’s your turn to have fun. Your internal search engine scans the world at large for the data that will contribute to your happiness. Professional achievement will be good for your finances in March. Humor will be a cornerstone of your attitude. April’s “setbacks” are a blessing, as they guide you to more fruitful efforts. Taurus and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 49, 30 and 14.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You realize that relationships often are built over encounters that are few and far between. In order for the relationship to gain momentum, someone has to take initiative. That someone is you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your many successes will be the subject of inquiry. People want to know how you did what you did. Additionally, some of them would like to know whether you can help them achieve similar results. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Mood swings are not always a negative occurrence. Today’s shifts in feeling will be the cause of spontaneous excitement. In the future, you’ll look back on today in wonderment. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Due to the uninspiring nature of mundane chores, it’s often difficult to get started, though satisfying to finish. Handle things quickly, and it soon becomes second nature to keep the orderly groove going. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you don’t have the buy-in and support of your family, it will be very difficult to be successful in today’s big tasks. So communicate your desire clearly, and try to get your people on board. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There will be a financial reversal in your household. The one who usually wants to save will spend, and the one who usually spends will save. Everything balances out in the end. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re a little obsessed right now with an object of desire. When you really want something, there’s no point in putting it off. Move forward so you can check this one off your list and start thinking of other things. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even

Today is Friday, Feb. 10, the 41st day of 2012. There are 325 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 10, 1962, the Soviet Union exchanged captured American U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers for Rudolf Abel, a Soviet spy held by the United States. On this date: In 1763, Britain, Spain and France signed the Treaty of Paris, ending the Seven Years’ War. In 1840, Britain’s Queen Victoria married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. In 1912, Joseph Lister, the “Father of Antiseptic Surgery,” died in Walmer, Kent, England, at age 84. In 1942, the former French liner Normandie capsized in New York Harbor a day after it caught fire while being refitted for the U.S. Navy. RCA Victor presented Glenn Miller and his Orchestra with a “gold record” for their recording of “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” which had sold more than 1 million copies. In 1949, Arthur Miller’s play “Death of a Salesman” opened at Broadway’s Morosco Theater with Lee J. Cobb as Willy Loman. In 1962, Republican George W. Romney announced his ultimately successful candidacy for governor of Michigan. In 1967, the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, dealing with presidential disability and succession, was ratified as Minnesota and Nevada adopted it. In 1968, U.S. figure skater Peggy Fleming won America’s only gold medal of the Winter Olympic Games in Grenoble, France. In 1981, eight people were killed when a fire set by a busboy broke out at the Las Vegas Hilton hotel-casino. In 1992, boxer Mike Tyson was convicted in Indianapolis of raping Desiree Washington, a Miss Black America contestant. (Tyson served three years in prison.) Author Alex Haley died in Seattle at age 70. In 2005, playwright Arthur Miller died in Roxbury, Conn., at age 89 on the 56th anniversary of the Broadway opening of his “Death of a Salesman.” One year ago: Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak refused to step down or leave the country and instead handed his powers to his vice president, stunning protesters in central Cairo who waved their shoes in contempt and shouted, “Leave, leave, leave.” Today’s Birthdays: Opera singer Leontyne Price is 85. Actor Robert Wagner is 82. Rock musician Don Wilson (The Ventures) is 79. Singer Roberta Flack is 75. Singer Jimmy Merchant is 72. Rock musician Bob Spalding is 65.

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: There is an ongoing issue between my husband and me. It’s his disregard for my personal safety. Our large city is known for its heavy, fast traffic and impatient drivers. “Jon” is a good driver. He likes to drive in the left (passing) lane on the highway or tollway, usually about five miles above the posted speed limit. This is considered too slow for many drivers, who become impatient and aggressive having to be behind us in the fast lane. They flash their headlights and tailgate us, trying to get him to move over into the right lane so they can pass, but Jon refuses to yield. If they start to pass us on the right, he will speed up and race them so they can’t get ahead of him. He says he’s “teaching them a lesson.” I have told my husband repeatedly that these games are dangerous and they scare me. Not only could we get into an accident, but we could get into an ugly confrontation or worse. I am terrified in these situations and he knows it, but he continues. I try to drive as often as possible, but I can’t see as well at night as I used to, so Jon drives at night or when we’re going long distances. With the price of gas and considering the inconvenience and inefficiency, it doesn’t make sense to go in separate cars. Do you have any suggestions? -- ON A COLLISION COURSE IN HOUSTON DEAR ON A COLLISION COURSE: Jon should be told that impeding the flow of traffic is a very dangerous practice.

His childish behavior could incite road rage, and it is everyone’s responsibility to minimize instances in which road rage can occur. Contact the Department of Public Safety to get a copy of the Texas Drivers Handbook. That way you can show Jon in black and white that his behavior is not only wrong but dangerous. While some husbands are not receptive to a wife’s comments about their driving, most will listen to what a state trooper has to say about good driving practices versus bad ones. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. And one more word of advice: Continue being the driver as often as possible. Your lives could depend on it. DEAR ABBY: I was discussing with my 26-year-old daughter how parents punish their kids, when suddenly she told me that she hated that I would make her write “lines” when she was growing up. She mentioned that one day I made her do it when her friend was there to play with her. I felt really bad about this and wonder why she is bringing this up now. -- WONDERING DOWN SOUTH DEAR WONDERING: It came up now because punishment was the topic of conversation, and she flashed back on how humiliating it was to have been punished in front of a friend. Clearly it made an impact -- and it would be interesting to know if the infraction was repeated after that.
