Arctic plant revived after 32,000 years
Today High: 38 Record: 64 (1994) Sunrise: 6:35 a.m. Tonight Low: 28 Record: -13 (1993) Sunset: 5:22 p.m.
(NY Times) — Living plants have been generated from the fruit of a little arctic flower, the narrowleafed campion, that died 32,000 years ago, a team of Russian scientists reports. The fruit was stored by an arctic ground squirrel in its burrow on the tundra of northeastern Siberia and lay permanently frozen until excavated by scientists a few years ago. This would be the oldest plant by far that has ever been grown from ancient tissue. The present record is held by a date palm grown from a seed some 2,000 years old that was recovered from the ancient fortress of Masada in Israel. Seeds and certain cells can last a long term under the right conditions, but many claims of extreme longevity have failed on closer examination, and biologists are likely to greet this claim, too, with reserve until it can be independently confirmed. Tales of wheat grown from seeds in the tombs of the pharaohs have long been discredited. Lupines were germinated from seeds in a 10,000-year-old lemming burrow found by a gold miner in the Yukon. But the seeds, later dated by the radiocarbon method, turned out to be modern contaminants.

Iran warns U.S. over Syria as crackdown grows CAIRO (NY TImes) —Two Iranian warships docked in a Syrian port on Monday as a senior Iranian lawmaker denounced the possibility that the Americans might arm the Syrian opposition, adding to the international tensions over the nearly year-long crackdown by the government of President Bashar al-Assad. As the government forces continued to pound opposition strongholds, the International Committee of the Red Cross said it
was trying to negotiate a brief pause in the violence to deliver aid to the most devastated areas. Activist groups reported intensified attacks on the besieged Baba Amr neighborhood in the central city of Homs. They said the government’s inability to eradicate the opposition there despite weeks of bombardment could be keeping the military from striking deeper and harder into other parts of the country where armed
resistance and rebellion is believed to be growing, including Hama and Idlib to the north. “The biggest challenge in Homs is Baba Amr,” said Wissam Tarif, of the activist group Avaaz. “They cannot move military power to Idlib or Hama without finishing Homs first. They cannot leave any pockets of resistance behind them.” He said 16 people had been killed in Homs on Monday. Such reports are impossible to verify.
Dossier details Egypt’s case European ministers are poised against democracy groups to approve Greek rescue CAIRO (NY Times) — The Egyptian prosecution’s summary of the case against at least 16 Americans and others from five democracy and human rights groups focuses largely on the testimony of their accusers, with evidence primarily limited to proof that their organizations used American and other foreign funds for payrolls and rent. The prosecution’s dossier also shows leaps of logic in a case that has imperiled a decades-old alliance with Washington and threat-

ened Egypt with the loss of $1.5 billion in aid. The case, for example, cites documents seized in December from one group, the International Republican Institute, that included Wikipedia maps of Egypt showing the country divided into four parts. While Egypt is typically described as comprising four regions — upper and lower Egypt, greater Cairo and the Suez Canal and Sinai region — the prosecution suggested that the maps showed a plan to dismember the country.
BRUSSELS (NY Times) — After months of tense negotiations, euro zone finance ministers worked deep into the night Monday to try to agree on a second giant bailout to bring Greece back from the brink of default, subject to strict conditions and in exchange for yet more severe austerity measures. The Greek finance minister, Evangelos Venizelos, left, spoke with the president of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, during a meeting of finance ministers in Brussels on Monday. Under the bailout terms, Greece is supposed to reduce its debt to 120 percent of gross domestic product by 2020, from about 160 percent now. But the steady deterioration of the public finances in Athens have left the country’s creditors with problems in making the figures for Monday’s bailout add up, and the latest estimates suggest that figure would be closer to 129 percent.

N.H. trial set to begin on Rwanda genocide case CONCORD — A New Hampshire federal courtroom is about to become a laboratory for analyzing the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and what role a Manchester woman from Rwanda played. Prosecutors said 41-year-old Beatrice Munyenyezi lied on applications to enter the United States in 1995 and obtain citizenship in 2003. They said she ordered the rapes and murders of Tutsis in Butare during the three-month geno-
cide that killed about 800,000 people. She has denied any involvement. Most of the witnesses will travel from Rwanda and speak no English. Three Kinyarwandan interpreters have been hired and housed. Court officials will not reveal their names or how far they have traveled. Identities of the Rwandan witnesses also are sealed. Jury selection begins Wednesday. —Courtesy of WMUR

Lawmakers to discuss abortion law CONCORD — The law that requires pregnant girls seeking abortions to tell their parents or get a judge’s OK is back before the New Hampshire House. The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday on a bill to change the requirement that a judge issue a ruling within 48 hours to within two court business days. That would mean girls filing petitions late in the week would not
hear back over a weekend, effectively lengthening their wait time. The law requiring parental notice took effect Jan. 1 after lawmakers overrode Gov. John Lynch’s veto. The law requires girls under 18 who want an abortion to either have a parent or guardian waive the notice requirement in writing or abortion providers will, with their consent, mail a notice to them. —Courtesy of WMUR
Patriots’ reps. lobby for special license plate CONCORD — Representatives of the New England Patriots will be at the Statehouse this week lobbying for a special license plate to benefit the team’s charitable foundation. The Senate is holding a hearing Thursday on a bill that would establish the special number plate with a Patriots design. The plates would cost $40 with half the proceeds going to the state and
half to the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. Renewals would cost $15 with $5 going to the state and $10 to the foundation. The foundation would have the right to auction plates with numbers 999 and under. Foundation President Joshua Kraft and the Patriots cheerleaders will attend the hearing. —Courtesy of WMUR

Sun missing point on budget committee To the editor: The Conway Daily Sun wrote and editorial on Feb. 17, accusing supporters of the school of having a kneejerk reaction to a standoff with the budget committee last year. The Daily Sun is missing the point. The issue is not what has happened in the past, it is what will happen in the future. The two petitioned warrant articles that would remove the budget committee with its regulatory power and replace it with an advisory budget committee is a reaction to what is happening at the state level. Legislation in Concord has been introduced by local legislators and supported by local budget committee members, that would take away the voters right of being able to amend the
budget from the floor during the deliberate portion of town meeting. The most important part of our system is the ability of the local voters deciding the direction of our community. It is not the state’s responsibility to protect us from ourselves which is what this new legislation is attempting to do. In the coming days, you will probably be bombarded with people on either side of this issue writing to the newspaper trying to sway your opinion one way or the other.

Lack of logic in the progressive movement To the editor: I have been bothered lately by the lack of logic in the progressive movement. I offer the following: 1. Christmas, Progressives in their efforts to eliminate Christianity, have decided to rename Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays. Consider This. Even if Christ was only a great teacher, he created a belief and a philosophy that has lasted over 2000 years and his deeds are history. They are willing to recognize a holiday for M.L. King, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Is it logical to exclude Christ from this honor. 2. Global warming has become a major item on their agenda. If there is proof that global warming is happening, what is lacking is proof that man is the cause. Ancient records show massive climate changes before man even dis-
covered fire. Curious isn’t it? Accelerating the change over of our present system to the so called green power is illogical. We can neither afford the expense or the time, until we develop our own resources of gas, oil, to pay for it. 3. Deficit spending. No household, business, country, can survive spending more than it takes in. If nothing else shows the progressives lack of logic this does. They have plundered this country to the point it is bankrupt. All their plans to improve the lives of this countries citizens will come crashing down. Like the parasite that leaches the life out of its host, they will destroy this country. I believe that their policies have only been a means to an end. Their desire to stay in power. I hope I am wrong, but that’s the way I see it. Wallace Trimpop Lovell

Should the budget committee continue to have the power to change budgets, or should it be an advisory board only?
There were 28 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “Should the budget committee continue to have the power to change budgets, or should it be an advisory board only?” Fifteen people said the committee should be advisory only; 13 said it should continue to have power to change budgets. I hope the people are enjoying how the government are enjoying how the government is running their lives by telling them what they can and can’t do. The budget committee should be advisory only. If it’s not, I hope the people enjoy socialism because that’s exactly where we’re heading. This is Don in Center Conway. What a ludicrous idea. Demands of the schools would be extreme and spending would just increase by leaps and bounds. Hey, why not give all our taxes over to the school board. That’s what eventually would happen without the budget committee being there to do what is fiscally responsible for us taxpayers. Please, people, think. Don’t sign the petition. Is this question for real? What these people want to do is do away with the budget committee and then they can just inflate the school budget even more and make our taxes go up even more. When does it end? All these people move in here and want all these services. When does it end? Could somebody please answer that for me? I believe what we presently have is advisory only. They met throughout the year, discussing the town and school matters and their budget, and then presented on a warrant at the deliberative meetings for discussions and amendments with the final vote from the registered voters of Conway that are present at that meeting and then this goes on the final warrant to be put on a ballot for a vote in April taking place in private in a voting booth. I find it very sad that a group of supposedly educated people want to do away with a level of government in the democratic process. Lastly, I think the Conway Daily Sun should list the names of all those who signed the petition that gives them the freedom to set their on wages. Please, I urge all voters to strongly vote no and vote down article 34 and 35 in April. Patricia Swett, East Conway. I believe that Cyndi White’s idea of why it should be dissolved is correct. I think that the budget committee should be and I think we have too many chiefs. Absolutely (the budget committee should continue to have the power to change budgets). Articles 34 and 35 of the town warrant were drawn up by the selectmen’s representatives to the budget committee, with the help of others and then they were presented for the warrant by a school board member. The budget committee is set up to represent all the interests of the people of Conway. The majority of the members are elected and precincts send representatives also. The move by so-called American citizens to destroy the form of government we have — a government designed by a group of brilliant people known as the Founding Fathers is a barefaced indication of what is happening across the U.S. Education in the U.S. was at the top of
the world list just 40 years ago. We are now listed at 26, with Finland at the top. The fact that a majority of the signers of the warrant article are in some way connected to education at the local level should wake up this whole town. We are at an ever increasing rate being sold down the river. For a starter, four school board members have signed, as well as the first principal of our new high school. These so called educators have no desire and are ill-equipped to give students a well-rounded and neutral position on American history and civics. If you have children and grandchildren that you have any interest in looking ahead for, I strongly suggest that you turn out for the deliberative sessions of the budgets: school on March 5, town on March 7, 7 p.m. at the high school. These two sessions are the only time and place that you can change figures either up or down. The actual voting takes place at the rec. center in a booth on April 10. That allows you to vote without your boss, your spouse or anyone else ever knowing how you voted. Douglas M. Swett, East Conway, a member of the budget committee. The budget committee should continue to have power and change budgets, especially in Bartlett. We need one of those for a school board that’s out of control. You bet the budget committee should have the power to change budgets. The school board was out only for what they wanted, regardless for how it affects the town as a whole. The same for the selectmen and police commission. The budget committee deals with all budgets as to how they will affect taxes. They should have the power to do the job they have been given. The budget committee should have more power. It is the taxpayers money, not special interest slush funds for the local shadow government and their friends to do with as they please. It is out-of-towner and outsider money as much if not more than a local bank account. I’m sick of the revolving puppet show of loudmouths and bullies who look the other way when it suits them. No taxation without equal representation. Take a good look at our country. We didn’t get here by accident. We’ve been lied to and manipulated for to long. If it takes micromanagement in every department to get it right, then do it. The budget committee should absolutely stay in place and stay as it is. The people who brought this petition and signed it are people who want to spend every penny they see and have a special agenda. With out the budget committee, who is giving the checks and balances for what’s paid for in the town? And if it’s to be determined if it’s legal or not, who is paying for that, I wonder? Not the people who signed the petition, I don’t think. Your question in this week’s TeleTalk is very misleading. The question is not, whether the budget committee should have the power to change budgets, it is should. The voters have the power to change budgets. The legislation that is working its way through the New Hampshire House and Senate will strip the local voters from being able to
amend budgets on the floor of the deliberative meetings. The Conway Daily Sun is missing the point on this issue. No one is trying to strip the budget committee of the oversight it currently has. Unfortunately, the state House is trying to give the budget committee more authority than the voters by taking away or limiting, amendments from the floor. The only way to stop this from happening now or in the future is to move the budget committee to an advisory committee which will have almost the same oversight as the budget committee has always had. Michael Digregorio. Get rid of the budget committee. We have a school board and selectmen. If they don’t approve what we want we’ll just get rid of them, vote them out — that’s democracy. New Hampshire has too much government, layers and layers of government. Let’s start working on getting rid of the 400 legislators; half of them are nut jobs anyway. It absolutely doesn’t matter who was an advisor, who was a decider regarding budgets, because whenever a budget is proposed, if it’s voted down it’s put to vote six minutes later and then again and again and again until it’s finally passed. And as far as Mrs. White calling other people extremists, I suggest she’ll want to look in mirror, because she is an extremist in the same league with Barry Hussein Obama. They both are extremists. My reaction to this ill-fated, divisive, and highly disingenuous petition effort is one of deep disappointment and mild surprise. Surprise because the current budget committee under Dave Sordi’s leadership is arguably the best one Conway has ever had. It is loaded with talent and no one has ever worked harder than Dave. Disappointed because the quality and effort of the current committee apparently has nothing to do with the so-called reasons to “de-fang” it. Instead, I sense a vindictive “we’ll show you now” attitude that likely tracks back to last year when an 11 percent reduction was recommended and voted on by the budget committee’s at their final meeting. Curiously, only two signers of the petition attended that meeting. I also was there as was Greydon Turner, but Mike Digregorio (who authored this petition) and Cyndi White (who apparently is leading the effort with Digregorio) were not present, nor were any of the other petition signees. If they had been, they could have spoken up and had their say and perhaps influenced the outcome thus avoiding the subsequent debacle. If Betty Loynd and Lynne Brydon were savvy enough to be there, why were the others not? When people feel they must do this sort of thing on a stealth basis, that should tell you something about their motivation. More to the point, when people want to remove an essential fiscal check and balance the result of which would be sky rocketing taxes, that should tell you all you need to know about them. Ted Sares, member of budget committee, North Conway. The suggestion to strip the Conway Budget Committee of most of its power is an insult to Conway citizens’ intelligence. This is Syndi White and I am writing
into to Tele-Talk to let everyone know why I submitted the petitions. First, I want to clarify that I did so as a private citizen, not as a member of the school board. In recent years the budget committee has been taken over by people with extreme views, exhibiting inappropriate behavior and expressing negative opinions about children, families, education, police and services provided by the town. Along with these extreme views, we saw an abuse of their power. Last year, the budget committee arbitrarily slashed the School Budget by 11 percent. The people of the town spoke clearly against this reckless, destructive cut with their vote. Yet that did not matter, because the state law only allows the amount appropriated at any annual town meeting to be increased by not more than 10 percent. Now there is a proposal in the works to increase the power of budget committee and lessen the authority of school and town departments to establish their own budgets. State Representative and Conway Budget Committee member Karen Umberger sponsored a bill in the legislature (HB1177) to reduce that amount to 2.5 percent. This would take away the voice of the people and their power to influence a decision on the budget with their vote. When a committee becomes more powerful than the voters of the town, then there is a very real potential for those few people to rule over the citizens and tear apart the quality of education and necessary services. I am not advocating for eliminating the budget committee, but changing it to an advisory. The difference is an advisory committee cannot establish or cut the budgets. Their purpose is to review and recommend/not recommend budgets established by the town and school. This provides a good system of checks and balances, and keeps the voters wellinformed. It gives the power to decide on whether or not to adopt a budget back to the voters of Conway. Syndi White. If the schoolies can dictate their own budget, then so should the cops. This is Ralph in Eaton. Are you kidding me? Cyndi White, Betty Loynd, DeFeo, and every school board member who supports this grossly offensive idea should immediately resign! This is not representation! Cyndi, if you want to see a small group of rogue extremists destroying the quality of this town, then set up a mirror at the next school board meeting; and make sure Nelson is seated at the table! The school committee wants to take away the main entity standing between taxpayers and the school! As it is, every year Nelson bumps the budget by a million plus some more, and every year the voting majority in Conway is duped into giving it to them. He tries to make it sound like he’s worked a miracle; the budget is down by 2 percent; wow! But with the warrant articles it’s up $1.5 million; and oh yeah, your taxes are going up another 15 percent; this year! We’re not stupid Nelson! The budget committee is the only semblance of sanity in a town with a school system gone spending wild! The budget committee is not micro managing; they are looking out for the taxpayers; which is see TELE-TALK page 19

FIRE from page one
Conway Village Fire Department was dispatched to Bald Hill Road at around 1 p.m. Saturday for a report of smoke. Upon arrival, firefighters discovered the home at 1299 Bald Hill Road was on fire. Conway Village requested mutual aid from Center Conway and North Conway fire departments. The two-story singlefamily home was built prior to 1900. "The construction type and age of the building as well as the volume of building contents made the fire difficult to get at and extinguish," said Solomon. Crews had the fire under control in an hour, and all units were clear the scene at 4:17 p.m. Red Cross spokeswoman Lisa Michaud said the American Red Cross New Hampshire Region provided financial assistance and referrals to one person from the home. "At this point the immediate emergency needs have been met," she said.

making snow,” said Attitash/Wildcat marketing director Thomas Prindle Monday. “I think it showed our customers that we care and are doing our best to provide great skiing. We have heard many positive comments — people are impressed with what we have, both at Attitash and Wildcat, where we just shot some video for Ski NH's report,” said Prindle. Sunday's figures at Attitash beat those for Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend, which was stronger than last year's, according to Prindle. “After a troubling start to the year for the ski industry, it's encouraging to see us making up ground,” said Prindle. Likewise, Cranmore president and general manager Ben Wilcox Monday said that Sunday was the best day of the season, and that Monday as of mid-afternoon was on par with last year's Monday, which was part of a strong February vacation week last year. “People are definitely here. There was some concern going into the week about whether people would come, given the lack of snow down south, but we are pleased,” said Wilcox Monday afternoon. “Our Mountain Adventure Park is doing very well.” Wilcox said Cranmore is not making snow right now, but he underscored that the resort had made substantial amounts of snow to add to its base in the weeks leading up to February vacation week and that the cover was of a good depth heading. Black Mountain's Jon Fichera on Monday said the week was off to a good start. “Conditions are good, and the skiers are here and enjoying it. We're not sure what the weather will be like toward the end of the week, but we have no
control over that, right?” said Fichera Monday, a sunny day that was perfect for skiing and riding. The Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce did some photo shoots at such places as Bear Notch Ski Touring in Bartlett Monday to continue its efforts to let New England know that the valley has the snow. “Janice Crawford [of the chamber] and her daughter, Jamie, were just here Monday morning to get some photos for the chamber's snow e-mail reports of 'Where's the Snow,’ ” said Doug Garland of Bear Notch Monday afternoon. “We've really got some good snow, and we're hoping that we can get the word out and make a Bear Notch believer out of everyone. We're sitting on 10-to 18-inch base and it's grooming out great every day. The skiers are astounded — I have to say it has been a very rewarding weekend, as people are amazed at what we have. The Bartlett snow belt is coming through once again.” Crawford said Monday she and her daughter Jamie were given a tour of Bear Notch's ski touring network, and then took a lesson at Jackson Ski Touring. “There is plenty of snow up here, and anyone who doesn't believe that just hasn't gone out on the trails. Both Bear Notch and Jackson had record breakers for the year Sunday. Conditions are great,” said Crawford, noting that footage shot at the centers is placed in the chamber's e-traveler and s also included in the chamber's electronic Snow Weekly newsletter. “That electronic publication has picked up 1,000 followers since we started in November, so we are happy with the results of that,” she said. According to AccuWeather, the good weather was expected to continue for Tuesday.

foot, however, it is believed that the suspect entered a vehicle parked in the area, and fled northbound on Route 16." There was no weapon displayed or threatened during the robbery. King said it happened so quietly that the suspect didn't draw much attention to himself. King described the suspect as 40 to 50 years old with a medium build and gray hair. Police believe he got away in a white SUV. A suspect with a similar description robbed the North Conway Rite Aid on Thanksgiving last year. The suspects in both robberies wore sunglasses and and a baseball cap, according to security footage. The Thanksgiving robbery happened at around 1:30
p.m. The suspect in the Conway robbery handed the pharmacist a note demanding narcotics. Ossipee Police are still examining area surveillance footage and witness statements. Officers are actively following leads and comparing this incident to other area similar incidents. The Ossipee Rite Aid has been robbed and burglarized seven times in the last five years. Police have made five arrests related to those crimes. Rite Aid has made security enhancements over that time, said King. "We have a pretty good success rate," said King. Rite Aid is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect in see ROBBERY page 18

the Ossipee case, said Rite Aid spokesman Eric Harkreader. Rite Aid has a good security system and a solid track record of providing law enforcement with the information it needs to make arrests, he said. State Police and the Carroll County Sheriff's Office assisted with Saturday's robbery investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Ossipee Police at 539-2011. A similar robbery case from 2010 has been adjudicated. David Hall, who robbed the Ossipee Rite Aid in December of 2010, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in November. He was sentenced to eight years in prison. Hall was also ordered to pay Rite Aid $1,054 in restitution.

TELE-TALK from page 7
why they are there, Cyndi and Betty! If you don’t like it; resign! There must be new laws (listen up legislators) regarding the make up the school board. It must be of a combination of people with children in the system and people without children in the system. Until you do that, you will continue to get a biased school board acting only in their own best interest! David, Ray, William, and the one or two other sensible, fiscally responsible budget committee members; my hat’s off to you folks! Your efforts are seriously underrated, not much spoken of, but very much appreciated! Please stay and keep fighting for the elderly, the poor, the retired, the seniors, young families trying to make ends meet, and every honest hard working blue collar taxpayer! The following Tele-Talk responses were posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page: I say advisory only. The department heads work hard to create a realistic budget. Who knows better what is really needed in their department. It is within reason to have an advisory committee offer suggestion and perhaps question choices, but not to decide what is changed/slashed. I would hope the town of Conway has hired effective and knowledgeable department heads. I say advisory at best. Several members of the budget committee have exhibited not only a total
lack of knowledge of most of the subjects presented to them, but they rarely even display any knowledge of how a meeting is run or how to conduct themselves. These are not the people that should have the last word on my children’s education, or how the police department should be run. Mr. Swett, do you really think that early education is a way to “pull children from their parents and indoctrinate them like the Nazis did in Germany,” or do you just not want to spend one cent on preschool? Mr. Sares, your “million dollar house is only worth $500,000 now” and clearly the taxes on it are high. We all play by the same rules. Buy a cheaper house, and don’t take it out on our children! Enough has been written about Shakir. I’d rather not give him the attention. Without a limit to how far they can alter the submitted budget, the budget committee should be advisory only. Otherwise they should be legally limited to the same amount the voters can restore in a deliberative session. That way the people will be the final word on the budget — not a few rich “from away” types who aren’t connected to the community, haven’t raised children up here and only serve to serve their retirement fund’s bottom line. Advisory only. They have too much power, which they abused last year. If we could just find a way to use those inflated egos to power the streetlights (applies to 40 percent of the board). Advisory only!
The gang of five had the chance to come clean on why they chose 11 percent. No one fessed up to the method behind their madness, with the possible exception of Ray Shakir and Bob Drinkhall. It was pretty clear what the voters said. But some on the board still think they are above us “kids.” By making the committee advisory only is one way to tell these folks. It’s not up to the few to overrule the many. What we need as voters is a recommendation we can rely on as a community. Not as a gang of five. Advisory only, which is still a vital role and carries a lot of weight with voters at voting time. I believe in a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Advisory only! Young parents should mobilize to take away the power of these “men with agendas” and be advocates for their children’s education and this town’s safety. Advisory only. I signed the petition because I believe the budget committee should not have the power to change the budgets submitted to them, especially when they infuse their personal beliefs and ideals into their decisions. Take the politics out of it and just make sure the piggybank isn’t being robbed. I don’t mind paying extra for my child to finish her education and continue to support future generations. It’s how you got your education, isn’t it? Advisory only, for the reasons listed above.

Skinny on Sports
Wonders of the Nordic skiing ethic
A strange thing happened between the end of the State Championship Cross-Country Ski Meet at Great Glen Trails last Wednesday and today. Kennett boys cross country team went from co-champions to state champions on their own. A scoring glitch left results coming out slowly, first showing the Kennett Eagles and Hanover Marauders in a dead tie. Using order of finish position placement as the scoring criteria, the long-time rivals finished exactly level: 755-755. Before loading the buses to depart from a glorious day of nordic ski racing in Pinkham Notch, post-race awards cer-
emonies were conducted with Kennett and Hanover boys sharing the top podium. Further consideration turned Hanover Coach Tom Masterson to the detailed race rules which dictate a tiebreaker, something that had never occurred in the long era of ex-Eagle Coach Chuck Broomhall’s 30-something years. So when Kennett’s second year coach Steve Vosburgh received an email from race directors late Thursday, the news was great for the Eagles: Kennett victory was gained by 18 seconds. The accumulated time on course for the Eagles of 7593.9 seconds bested the Marauders total of 7615.2
by 21.3 seconds to earn the tiebreaker victory. From the moment of arrival at the Great Glen Trails race venue, with the towering Presidential peaks and the Great Gulf hovering above busloads of skiers, a camaraderie of the nordic ski community was evident. Wax masters and coaches diligently prepped skis at waxing tables spread about the gathering area, as skiers loosened limbs, chattered and skied about, and race officials congregated near the starting area and timing hut. see SKELTON page 26
Kennett skiers shine at Great Glen Trails BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
PINKHAM NOTCH — A pair of talented Kennett High juniors — Hannah Benson and Torin LaLiberte won two individual state championships in one day on Wednesday at Great Glen Trails competing in the Division II State Cross Country Meet. They each won the morning classical race and then followed that up by winning the afternoon freestyle (skate) race. “They both had great days,” Steve Vosburgh, Eagles’ head coach, said, Thursday. “They were the only two to hold down the same podium position in each race.” LaLiberte was also a part of the state championship boys team, who finished tied with Hanover for first overall but KHS garend the title based upon the cumulative times of all of its boys. In the NHIAA Handbook under Points of Emphasis a procedure for tie breaking. You tally the cumulative times for each discipline for the tied teams. The intent is for the team with the lesser cumulative total time to be declared the winner, meaning Kennett is this year’s Men’s Divisional winner by only a handful of seconds. “That was very cool,” Vosburgh said, smiling. “I have not heard of any one who protests this decision.” The KHS boys were also without talented junior Sean Doherty, who was representing the United States at the World Junior Biathlon Championships in Finland. “If we had Sean, there’s no doubt we would have won,” Laurel Zengilowski, head ski coach at Kennett High, said, Wednesday afternoon. “He would have made a huge difference, but I still think the boys we had did the best they could.” The Kennett and Hanover boys scored 755 points to take team honors followed by Plymouth, 711; Lebanon, 706; ConVal, 644; Souhegan, 638; Kingswood, 637; Bedford, 567; and Bishop Guertin, did not compete. Fifty boys raced on the day with LaLiberte winning the 5K classical race in a time of 15:26. Hanover teammates Tucker Cadlow and Spencer Hardy finished second and third, respectively, in 16:14 and 16:16. Other Kennett finishers were Donovan Spaulding, seventh, 17:23; PJ Benson, ninth, 17:42; Peter Haine, the lone senior on the KHS squad Wednesday, 10th, 17:43; Malcolm Badger, 14th, 18:06; and Liam Martin, 19th, 18:17. Skiing in the two phase (cross country and alpine) skimeister, Kurt Niiler was 36th in 21:07. see EAGLES page 25

Eagles keep winning; Smith joins 100 point club BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Kennett High hockey team broke out its new uniforms Friday night and then took care of business, winning a pair of Division III contests, including topping defending state champs Somersworth, in the span of 19 hours. Th Eagles disposed of Somersworth (9-7) 4-1 on Friday night before a large, vole home crowd at the Ham Ice Arena and then turned around Saturday and thrashed visiting Manchester West (2-14) 13-2 in a game that wasn’t that close. in the win talented junior Dillon Smith became the fifth Eagle to reach the elusive 100 career point mark when he recorded a five point night with four goals and an assist. “We are all really proud of Dillon,” Michael Lane, Eagles’ head coach, said. “It’s something he should be really proud of.” Smith, who played defense as a freshman, joins
Michael Skelton (Class of 2008), Griffin Meador (2010), Taylor Cyr (2010) and Kevin Murphy (2012) in triple figures for Kennett High. Kennett improved to 15-0 (16-0 overall) in Division III and clinched at worst the No. 2 seed through the playoffs. A win or two ties in the final two regular season games this week will clinch the top seed. For the third game in a row the Eagles fell behind on Friday night, but Somersworth’s delight was short-lived. The Hilltoppers got on the board first with 2:37 to play in the first period on a Jonathan Hansen breakaway goal. Their fans hadn’t even finished celebrating when KHS found the back of the net. Anthony LaRusso tied the game just 10 seconds later when he banged home a rebound of a Cody Richard shot, Nick Massa got an assist on the play. see HOCKEY page 26

Kennett hopes to play a spoiler down the stretch BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — With three games to play the Kennett High boys basketball team is looking to close out the season on a positive note and that could mean spoiling a couple of opponents playoff plans. The Eagles dropped a pair of contests last week, falling 85-40 at Pembroke Academy on Friday night and 58-47 at home to Oyster River on Tuesday. The setbacks saw KHS slide to 1-14 in Division II play. “”It’s now newsflash here, Pembroke is very, very good,” Steve Cote, Eagles’ head coach, said. “They’re super fags and very efficient on the offensive end.” The Spartans (13-2) took control of Friday’s game early by jumping out to a 27-5 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. “In the first half we stayed with them a little bit then we got caught up in their tempo and things got away from us,” Cote said. “Let’s say we had a very constructive talk at halftime and played at a much slower pace in the second half. We were a lot more efficient with the basketball and even though we were slower scored three times more. Unfortunately there are still lessons to be learned with three games left.” The Eagles gave Oyster River (6-7) fits on Tuesday, but the Bobcats were able to leave town with a victory largely on the strength of hitting their free throws in the closing seconds to prevent a Kennett comeback. “It was our best effort against Oyster River in a long, long time,” Cote said. “We played them tough, but we had two specific mental lapses at the beginning of the third period and at the end of the game.” Oyster River led 11-6 at the end of the first quarter; 23-16 at the half; and 42-28 after three periods. “We went small and fast to try to turn them over in the fourth quarter and we were able to get it down to five,” Cote said. “We had to start fouling them with 1:10 left because Oyster River hadn’t been making its foul shots beef then. (Laughing) They didn’t miss down the stretch. Our Achilles’ heel was some mental lapses a couple of time and we were only

10-23 from the foul line — that can’t happen, especially in close games.” Alex Milford led Kennett in scoring with 12 points while Seth Davison added 8; Ryan Vajentic, 5; Scott Conner, 4; Bran DiLucchio, 4; Jordan Stocker, 4; Nate Ela, 3; Robert Starkey, 3; and Dustin Stewart, 1. “The guys played hard,” Cote said. “I told them afterwards we played great for 24 minutes and need to build on that.” The Eagles will hit the road for a contest at Coe-Brown Academy (7-8) today. The Bears have won four in a row since the return from injury of Second Team All State forward Skyler Mitchell. He and big man Darren Doyon for a formidable duo. “They like to play at a fast pace,” Cote said. “We know we’ll be facing a lot of pressure, but it’s a challenge we’re looking forward to.” Kennett is scheduled to play its final home game of the season Thursday (6:30 p.m.) when Laconia (4-11) and Second Team All State player Babacar Kamara visits The Nest. The Eagles will recognize their six seniors (Conner, Davison, Michael Lautenschlager, Alex Milford, Robert Starkey and Dustin Stewart) before the tipoff. “Those six guys have kind of been the bedrock of the team this season,” Cote said. “It’ll be nice to recognize them.”

Raiders just miss playoffs BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — Many wrote the Fryeburg Academy boys’ basketball team off at mid-season after the Raiders lost their first eight games and showed no signs of turning their season around. But something happened. The hard work, the character, and the team’s willingness to continue working through adversity paid off. The Raiders won eight of their last 10 games, finished 8-10, and almost earned a spot in the preliminary round of the MPA tournament. Entering the last week of the season, the Raiders had Lake Region on the road and Poland at home left on their schedule. They knew that they needed to win both games to have an opportunity to earn a trip to the Expo in Portland. On Feb. 7, the Raiders traveled to Naples to face their rivals, Lake Region. Regardless of Lakers’ 3-13 record, the Raiders knew they were in a rivalry game where anything can happen, and they knew that they needed to be able to execute in front of a hostile crowd. Coach Sedge Saunders was worried about how the Raiders would start the game, “Regardless of their record, Lake Region is a tough place to play,” he said. “We needed to keep them down early.” Knowing they were in their third week of must wins, the Raiders jumped out of the gate and took an early 11-2 lead behind the three point shooting of Mike Costa and Walker Mallory. Costa hit two threes and Mallory one in the opening few minutes of the first quarter. Saunders felt the early shooting set the tone for the game. “We shot the ball well from the perimeter. 8-11 from behind the arc. Our perimeter game opened up our inside game. In the second half Djorje Obradovic had 18 points. He was 10-11 from the floor on the game.” The Raiders also forced a lot of turnovers with their defensive pressure, and this led to some easy transition buckets. Their pressure and fine outside shooting allowed them to build a 37-23 halftime lead. Fryeburg leaned on Obradovic in the second half and cruised to a 73-57 win. The Raiders featured balanced scoring again with Obradovic’s 22 points leading the way. Bright Amoako added 14 points, Costa 12 and Mallory 10. Although the Raiders knew Lake Region would challenge them, they believed that Poland on Feb. 10 was the true challenge to their post-season hopes. Poland was tourney bound and hungry for a win in order to secure a home court advantage in their prelim
tourney game. Fryeburg’s game plan called for pressuring the Knights, but Saunders knew this was potentially dangerous. “They are a guard oriented team, so we weren’t sure we could press them,” he said. “We did anyway because we did think that we could wear them down. We went with a 2-2-1 to wear them down while preventing easy buckets if they broke the press.” The strategy paid off nicely according to Saunders, “We got some steals early. In the second half the pressure started to take its toll. They got frustrated and they didn’t get many good looks.” Offensively the Raiders looked to exploit their size advantage. “We wanted to go inside and they played behind Obradovic, so we were able to get the ball to him,” Saunders said. Obradovic responded with 16 points on the night. The Raiders did not hit their outside shots, so the easy points in the bucket and off steals in the open court were crucial. According to Saunders it was not a beautiful game, “We gutted it out. We weren’t shooting well and it didn’t come easily.” The Raiders led 28-21 at the half and 41-32 after three quarters. Poland never took the lead, but they threatened early in the fourth quarter when a three pointer made it 41-38 with just over seven minutes left in the game. Amoako then took a rebound, dribbled the length of the court and hit Obradovic in the corner for an uncontested jump shot to make it 43-38. Costa followed by hitting two free throws to build the lead to 45-38. The lead never fell below six from that point onward and the Raiders hit free throws down the stretch for a 55-44 win. Obradovic led the Raiders with 16 points, Amoako tallied 15 and Lionel Rutabayairo added a valuable ten points off the bench in the win. Saunders appreciated Rautabayiro’s efforts off the bench. “We got a great game from Rutabayiro,” he said. “He scored 10 points off the bench, more than he has scored all year.” So, the Raiders finished their business, winning out the last two weeks and putting themselves into position to get a post season bid. However, Lincoln Academy, playing Oceanside, who beat them by a large margin earlier in the year, won and ended up in the last tourney seed. Saunders was devastated. “It was very disappointing not to get in the game,” he said. “I am most disappointed that the seniors did not get in. We have never gone more than two years without getting to the playoffs, so this is the first group that won’t experience a post-season game. And the whole team is playing so well right now.”

CONWAY — The Kennett High girls basketball team snapped a two game losing streak in style Friday night with its largest offensive output of the season and beat its first opponent with a winning record in the the process. The Eagles (9-7) beat Pembroke Academy (8-8) 63-44 to move into 10th place in the Division II standings. KHS will close the book on the regular season today (6:30 p.m.) when it hosts Coe-Brown Academy (14-3). The four seniors — Casey Blakely, Kendra Strong, Kaitlin “Shaq” Taylor and Jessie Wagner — will be recognized beforehand. Wagner, who missed the previous three games with a concussion, has been cleared to play in the regularseason finale. “Coe-Brown is a good team,” Larry Meader, Eagles’ head coach, said. “They’ve got most of their people back from last year — they’ve got decent size and all of the girls are athletic. They’ll be a good challenge for us going into the playoffs.” The Bears have won five in a row
including 12 of their last 13 games. They’re coming off an 84-32 victory at home against Sanborn (5-12) on Friday night. Kennett was impressive on Friday against the visiting Spartans. Despite missing Wagner and getting limited minutes from junior Lauren Kidder, who is recovering from a twisted ankle, the Eagles dominated the rebounding the department and did a great job of getting to the free throw line. “That was one of the keys for us,” Meader said. “We were 19-27, which was a season high for us, it probably was twice as many times as we’ve gone to the line this season.” Point guard Jordan Murphy, who had a game-high 17 points, was 9-11 from the charity stripe, including several pivotal free throws in the fourth quarter. Blakely added 16 points and 11 rebound while Taylor, who was inserted into the starting lineup and played a lot of minutes, also had a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Lauren White added 8 points; Kaylin Samia, four; Kidder, 3; Erin Milford, 2; and a Amanda Nusbaum, 2.

The Eagles took the lead at 14:13 of the second period when Massa found pay-dirt with a wrist shot from the left half wall. LaRusso and Richard picked up the assists and that line paid dividends one more time when the Eagles made it 3- 1 when Richard scored from LaRusso and Massa with 11:28 to play in the second. “That line is starting to click,” Lane said. “They had a real strong effort at Alvirne and they followed it up with another great effort Friday.” Connor Todd made it 4-1 late in the second period with 2:46 to go from Smith and Kevin Murphy. The Eagles closed the door in the third frame to go away with a 4-1 win. John Bishop was once again solid in net making 25 saves. Thirteen different Eagles recorded a point in the win over Manchester West. Adding to Smith’s four goal Junior Connor Todd celebrates after scoring Kennett’s fourth goal Friday night in the performance were LaRusso (three 4-1 Somersworth victory.

SKELTON from page 20
Vosburgh lauded the Great Glen hosts, calling it “a perfect course, great conditions and awesome grooming.” Leaving nothing to chance, Great Glen Director Howie Wemyss personally re-groomed the course around the noon hour, covering over the classical tracks and laying fresh lanes for the afternoon skate over the same course. Eagles Junior Captain Torin Laliberte not only swept to first place in both classical and skate races, but the dominance he showed in each victory, besting Hanover’s second place finisher Tucker Cadow by 48.8 seconds in the morning classical jaunt and then decimating another Marauders runner-up, Spencer Hardy, by 42.3 seconds in the afternoon skate race, was critical to the Eagles team victory. In fact, the race adage that “every seconds counts” had literal meaning for Laliberte and his Eagles teammates Donovan Spaulding, Peter Haine, P. J. Benson, Malcolm Badger and Liam Martin. In the girls races, Junior Hannah Benson skied to dominating individual victories in both nordic ski disciplines, winning her classical race by nearly two minutes, and the skate race by almost one minute. Near the race course’s highest point at Great Angel Station, during one race several competitors were seen encouraging rival skiers as they each pushed themselves up a steep stretch. And whenever a racer moved to overtake a slower opponent, the traditional call of “track” was quickly heeded by the slower skier, allowing for a safe and smooth pass. More than the championships earned, the entire day of skiing left racers, coaches and fans with a “feel good” spirit. A sun which peaked in and out provided enough warmth that crowds lounged in the parking and team areas during lunch between races. Rival skiers wandered into opponents camps to share stories of their morning races. Good natured competition even spilled over to the parents and food tables each provided for their team and supporters. While Plymouth Bobcat fans bragged about their pulled pork, no one could match the apple crisp made from seven different local apples at the Kennett spread. Perhaps the multiple examples of good sportsmanship and friendly competition exhibited during the State Championship cross country ski races is a by-product of the nature of the sport. Races demand that rivals hang out together before and after their races, and yet out on the course a skier may be totally alone in the winter beauty. Whatever the reason, it does not matter. The ethic of intense competition within a framework of friendliness and respect was on vivid display at the crosscountry skiing state championship meet this past week. And in the grand scheme of things, the lessons and love for their sport taken away by the athletes is far greater than any trophies or championships earned.

Congratulations to the Watson, Fall and Hormel families of Freedom on the newest member of their family, Hailey Elizabeth, who was born in November. Parents are Angela and Ben Pitman, grandparents are Joyce and Fred Watson of Freedom and Melvin Fall of Tamworth and Barbara Pitman of Texas. Great-grandparents are Velma and Glenn Hormell and Jacqueline and Bill Watson. A big thank you from Bill and Carol McIntire to the Freedom Ladies Auxiliary for the successful spaghetti supper for Billy McIntire Jr. to help him with his medical expenses. Billy had a successful kidney transplant and both he and his donor are doing great. The McIntire family is very appreciative of all the support our community has shown us during a difficult time. The Freedom Food Pantry received a very big boost from the Solo Saloon musical band on Valentine's Day, which hosted a concert to benefit the pantry. Our thanks to band members Christian Essex, Jacob Quimby and Chris Rhoda, as well as Sylvie Essex for planning this wonderful event. Families had a rollicking good time dancing and swaying to the rap/folk music. Lovely decorations with lots of Valentine hearts adorned the upstairs hall and the atmosphere was very festive. Admission was by donation and the Pantry received a generous contribution of cash plus eight large grocery bags filled to the brim with canned goods and nonperishables. This will provide meals for many weeks to come for numerous area families having difficulty making ends meet. The pantry is extremely grateful for this wonderful gesture, and our hats are off to Solo Saloon and these outstanding young people for sharing their talent and for their community involvement. Thanks also go to the Pantry volunteers for providing refreshments. Freedom was sad to hear of the death of Patty Ferguson last week. Patty and Alan had retired to Ormond Beach, Fla. after living for years on Village Road and being involved in our church for many years. Congratulations to Freedom’s Justice Ohanasian from KMS who made honors on the honor roll and was inadvertently left out of the initial list. Don’t forget to support Dollars for Scholars this Tuesday night at Flatbread. A portion of each pizza sale goes towards supporting our high school seniors and returning college students. Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 4 to 9 p.m. Come join Bonnie the Bead Lady for some fabulous beading at the Town Hall on Sunday, Feb. 26, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Ballroom dancing begins Thursday, March 1, at the town hall from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Instruction in waltz, foxtrot and swing. Must come with a partner. $100 per couple for four weeks. Call 5392740 for details. Payment due by Feb. 25. Freedom Elementary School is holding a blood drive on March 1 from 2 to 7 p.m. Volunteers are needed to assist with greeting people and handing out snacks to those that donate blood. Please notify Phyllis Fortier at 539-2077 if you can help. The following is from John Krebs, candidate for selectman: "My name is John Krebs, and I am one of three candidates for Freedom Selectman. The election for this office will take place on Tuesday, March 13, or by absentee ballot if you are unable to vote in person. I have lived in Freedom for 18 years, and have served on the Zoning Board of Adjustment, Town Committees and served 8 half years as a Selectman. I hold a Master’s of Science Degree in Community Planning and Public Administration. I have worked both as an employee and a Consultant to many communities throughout New Hampshire and understand municipal law, finance and management. I know both Jim Brown and Neal Boyle, the other two candidates, and respect them both. I am running for the office of Selectman, not against either Jim or Neal. As your selectman of three previous terms, I worked very hard to fight against the unfair Statewide property tax resulting from the Claremont Decision; created the town’s first personnel manual; established pay scales for each employment position; hired the Town’s first outside property assessor to ensure that all properties were assessed using uniform standards, worked with the Friends of Trout Pond to ensure the protection of 2,600 acres for generations to come, and signed the deed on the town’s behalf. I have no agenda for the position other than to work doggedly to maintain Freedom’s character. I will listen to you and try my very best to give everyone the consideration they deserve. I believe in open government and encouraging public participation in the decision making process. I am the only candidate who is not retired, therefore, I am not as visible around Freedom as much as the other two candidates. While I can’t meet each and every resident over a cup of coffee, it’s not because I don’t want to, but because I am typically at work. I will always make myself available by telephone or e-mail, and would welcome you to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or issues that you would like to discuss with me, you can reach me via email at email@example.com or telephone at 396-2868. I hope that you give me the opportunity to serve you again as selectman in 2012."

By Holiday Mathis past. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have a talent for fixing things. Part of your secret is that you act immediately, which is most often the best moment for mending. You know there’s no time to waste in getting angry with yourself or anyone else for what went wrong. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Success goes to those who dare to act. So does failure. You’re likely not quite ready to take your chances. You’re right to hang back and study what’s working (and not working) for others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You get the feeling that you’ll do your best work alone, and that’s absolutely correct. But you still need people. Try to be a part of a group, if only for a short amount of time. You’ll be happier for the effort. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can read people well, especially when they are trying to hide something from you. Once you get wind of a mystery, you’ll unravel it quickly. You may even be hired to do this. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s something you really want to do, so it’s a little odd that you have to talk yourself into it. But that’s how it goes. A good you-to-you talk in the mirror will do the trick to psyche yourself up for what you have to do. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 21). The fantastic luck that comes to you this year happens because you are supportive and willing to give others the best of your energy and attention. Your association with old friends brings new prospects in March. Family makes you proud in May. Someone sings your praises publicly in June. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 23, 50, 14 and 33.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll meet people with whom you are compatible and also extremely similar in sensibility, values and experience. Enjoy the feeling of belonging that comes with this connection. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may look back, but you will not stay back. You’ll assess what the problem was yesterday, and you’ll decide that from now on things will be different. You have the courage of your convictions. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You talk to people because they interest you, not because you want to make a sale. And yet, interacting successfully with others will broaden your financial horizons. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have the rare gift of being able to be completely objective about yourself. You’ll correctly evaluate your behavior to see whether it’s helping or hindering you, and you’ll assess what needs to change. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The real you has nothing to do with the needs and insecurities, fears and foibles by which you define yourself. All of that is just what happened to you. There’s a secure and fearless self inside. You’ll feel the presence strongly today. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). English author and fellow Virgo Samuel Johnson said, “The future is purchased by the present.” You’ll be so aware of the possible repercussions of your actions that you’ll move extremely slowly and thoughtfully. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can’t change certain circumstances that govern your family life. People did what they did, and the results are somewhat inevitable. What you can change is your attitude. You’ll make beauty out of the

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, February 21, 2012— Page 31
Today is Tuesday, Feb. 21, the 52nd day of 2012. There are 314 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 21, 1912, a new phrase entered the American political lexicon as former President Theodore Roosevelt, traveling by train to the Ohio Constitutional Convention, told a reporter in Cleveland, “My hat is in the ring,” signaling his intent to challenge President William Howard Taft for the Republican nomination. (After losing the nomination to Taft, Roosevelt then ran as the nominee of the Progressive Party, also known as the Bull Moose Party; the resulting split among Republicans is believed to have led to Democrat Woodrow Wilson’s victory in November.) On this date: In 1862, Nathaniel Gordon, captured at sea with nearly 900 Africans aboard his ship, the Erie, became the first and only American slave-trader to be executed under the U.S. Piracy Law of 1820 as he was hanged in New York. In 1885, the Washington Monument was dedicated. In 1912, the Great Fifth Ward Fire broke out in Houston, Texas; although property losses topped $3 million, no one was killed in the blaze. In 1925, The New Yorker magazine made its debut. In 1945, during the World War II Battle of Iwo Jima, the escort carrier USS Bismarck Sea was sunk by kamikazes with the loss of 318 men. In 1965, black Muslim leader and civil rights activist Malcolm X, 39, was shot to death inside the Audubon Ballroom in New York by assassins identified as members of the Nation of Islam. In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon began his historic visit to China as he and his wife, Pat, arrived in Beijing. In 1973, Israeli fighter planes shot down Libyan Arab Airlines Flight 114 over the Sinai Desert, killing all but five of the 113 people on board. In 1992, Kristi Yamaguchi of the United States won the gold medal in ladies’ figure skating at the Albertville Olympics; Midori Ito of Japan won the silver, Nancy Kerrigan of the U.S. the bronze. One year ago: Deep cracks opened in Moammar Gadhafi’s regime, with Libyan government officials at home and abroad resigning, air force pilots defecting and a major government building ablaze after clashes in the capital of Tripoli. Yemen’s embattled leader, President Ali Abdullah Saleh, rejected demands that he step down, calling demonstrations against his regime unacceptable acts of provocation and offering to begin a dialogue with protesters. Today’s Birthdays: Movie director Bob Rafelson is 79. Actor Gary Lockwood is 75. Actor-director Richard Beymer is 73. Actor Peter McEnery is 72. Actor Alan Rickman is 66. Actress Tyne Daly is 66. Actor Anthony Daniels is 66. Tricia Nixon Cox is 66. Rock musician Jerry Harrison is 63. Actress Christine Ebersole is 59. Actor William Petersen is 59. Actor Kelsey Grammer is 57. Country singer Mary Chapin Carpenter is 54. Actor Jack Coleman is 54. Actor Christopher Atkins is 51. Actor William Baldwin is 49. Rock musician Michael Ward is 45. Blues musician Corey Harris is 43. Country singer Eric Heatherly is 42. Rock musician Eric Wilson is 42. Rock musician Tad Kinchla is 39. Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt is 33. Singer Charlotte Church is 26. Actress Ellen Page is 25.

by Abigail Van Buren
AIR FORCE MAY BE PERFECT JOB FOR TEEN ON THE MOVE
DEAR ABBY: I respectfully disagree with the advice you gave to “Wants to Enlist” (Dec. 29). She is the 19-year-old woman who burns out of jobs quickly and is thinking about enlisting in the Air Force. You discouraged her. I served honorably in the U.S. Air Force, Air Force Reserves and the Air National Guard for 14 years. Experience taught me that if I didn’t like my current assignment, it was easier to tolerate it for the time being knowing it wasn’t a permanent assignment. Eventually, I received orders to go elsewhere. My military training was the best foundation for me. It taught me discipline, instilled confidence that I could handle any situation, and provided me with skills that enabled me to work with people under various circumstances. “Wants to Enlist” needs to be honest with the companies/ organizations she applies to. During the interview, she should be upfront in saying she is willing to commit to a set period of time and/or to accept a part-time position, lower pay and a flexible schedule. The employers who hired me under these terms have written me letters of recommendation, proving they benefitted from our arrangement. -- FORMER FLY GIRL IN NEW MEXICO DEAR FORMER FLY GIRL: Thank you for offering a solution that worked for you. Responses I received to that letter provided interesting insights that “Wants to Enlist” may wish to consider. My readers comment: DEAR ABBY: I, too, wasted years of my life job-hopping. It seemed I couldn’t stay in a position longer than six months. It wasn’t until late in life that I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. With therapy and medication, my life finally took on some semblance of “normal.” For the first time, I finally had
purpose and direction. My final job lasted 17 years. I don’t mean to suggest “Wants to Enlist” suffers from the same disorder, but it deserves some consideration. -- B.P.D. IN TENNESSEE DEAR ABBY: Once a job became routine, I lost interest. Eventually I found my way to higher education and a position where there are always new challenges. I now have a long-term and successful career. Perhaps this 19-year-old should consider attending college even part-time -- to satisfy her intellect while preparing for a more varied and challenging future. -- BEEN THERE IN LAS CRUCES, N.M. DEAR ABBY: “Wants to Enlist” may want to be tested for ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). For many years, I was misdiagnosed with a variety of mental health issues. Then my husband read an article about adult ADD. After checking with my doctor, I was put on medication to see if it would help. I cannot tell you the difference it has made in my life. I’m calmer, happier and have more confidence than ever. I hope this young lady will look into what might be causing her behavior because she will see how wonderful she is. -HAPPIER NOW IN FLORIDA DEAR ABBY: I also had difficulty settling down in one place. My solution was to become a traveling health care worker. I work for a contracting agency that sends me on three-month assignments all over the country. If I don’t like a facility, I know my time there will end soon. There are local contracting agencies in larger cities if you don’t want to pack up and move. This job has been the answer to my dreams! -- TRACY IN KINGWOOD, TEXAS

Members can also take classes throughout NH all year. Tuition assistance for courses is also available. Come join us on March 1st and be part of the fun. Talk with Barb Holmes or Betsy Gemmecke for more information or go to olli.granite.edu. One course to note is Barb and Sandy Thoms’ class called "The Beginnings, Middle and Endings in the Kitchen" to be held March 12, 15, 19 and 22. To really get you in the springtime mode, sign up for the next night at the opera at the Inn at Crystal Lake on Thursday, March 22, featuring “South Pacific.” Rodgers and Hammerstein’s setting of James Michener’s “Tales of the South Pacific,” with Mary Martin and opera singer Ezio Pinza in the original cast. The wonderful music includes “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Bali Ha’i,” “Younger Than Springtime,” and “There is Nothin’ Like a Dame.” Last Thursday night 26 people tried out the Snowville Inn’s blue plate specials with meatloaf or pork chop or chicken, all served with mashed potatoes, asparagus, and gravy.

The annual meeting of the Eaton Village Preservation Society will take place on Thursday, March 1, at 6:30 p.m. in the dining room at the Inn at Crystal Lake. Come hear about new projects to tackle to benefit and beautify our town. Voting and town meeting day is coming Tuesday, March 13. We need to find someone to take over for moderator for a two-year term. Paul Hennigan’s shoes will be very hard to fill, but he said he is not running again, so think about who could do this job. Rick Young is running for selectman and Ken McKenzie, although his name appears on the ballot, is not running. He supports Rick. For town clerk/tax collector for a three-year term has September Edge running against Suzanne Raiche. Other positions are uncontested. Highway commissioner for one year is Elwyn Thurston; trustee of the trust fund for three years is Nancy Burns, and supervisor of the checklist for six years is Donna Young, replacing Sunni Wilkewitz, who is stepping down after many years of service. You can see the list at the Eaton Village Store.
