BARTLETT — Twenty-three of the 32 teachers at the Josiah Bartlett Elementary School will be getting $2,700 pay raises next year if voters approve a new twoyear contract brokered between the teachers' union and the Bartlett School Board. If the contract goes through the teachers will be in line to get more than $10,000 in raises over four years — $2,700 in each of the last two years and $2,700 for each of the next two years. Just four citizens turned out to the school board's budget hearing Feb. 7, and, while the operating budget is down, due largely to a drop in health insurance and special education costs, the bulk of the




month of January. Lawmaker questioned if the number of rides justifies the expense. On Jan. 4, the Blue Loon started its "flex route" service that makes stops from Wolfeboro to Conway and from Ossipee to

Model finds stardom via YouTube (NY Times) — Unlike the many little-known beauties now on view at New York Fashion Week — women seldom identified by more than one name (Agata, Hanaa, Frida, Joan) — Kate Upton, just 19 and resembling a 1950s pinup, but with the legs of a W.N.B.A. point guard, has arrived on the scene as a largely self-created Internet phenomenon. It is not just that she has a respectable Twitter following (170,000 people at last count), or a YouTube video with over 3 million viewers, or marketing potential perhaps best measured by her rocketing from obscurity to No. 2 on a list of the world’s 99 “top” women compiled by, an online magazine with 15 million readers. Less than a year after Ms. Upton, curvaceous and rambunctious, posted a video of herself at a Los Angeles Clippers game doing the Dougie, a dance popularized in a hiphop tune by Cali Swag District, she finds herself in one of the most coveted positions in the modeling business. Joining an elite club of modeling powerhouses, Upton was announced Monday night on David Letterman’s show as the latest cover girl for Sports Illustrated’s annual swimsuit issue. “We all know that social media now creates its own reality,” said Wayne Sterling, the publisher of

U.S. seeks to size up China’s heir apparent during visit

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — China’s vice president, Xi Jinping, held a day of highlevel meetings here on Tuesday to open a visit billed as a get-toknow-you exercise for the man widely seen as the next leader of China. But he was welcomed with pointed criticism from his host, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who declared that the United States and China could cooperate in a mutually

beneficial manner “only if the game is fair.” In a day of heavily scripted encounters, Xi met President Obama in the Oval Office, lunched with Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at the State Department, and will be saluted by an honor guard at the Pentagon, talk to captains of industry at the Chamber of Commerce and join Biden and his wife, Jill, for a dinner at

the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory. Biden spoke in blunt terms when he delivered a speech at the start of the State Department lunch, where more than 300 people were seated in the Ben Franklin reception room at tables brimming with Valentine’s Day decorations: pink and red tulips and roses, red candles and tablecloths with fuchsia flower patterns.

Syria resumes shelling, rejecting U.N. rebuke BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — The Syrian government on Tuesday brushed aside a stern castigation from the top United Nations human rights official about its deadly attacks on civilians, calling her assessment propaganda as Syria’s military resumed what one activist described as the “brutal shelling” of the city of Homs. A day after the official, Navi Pillay, the United Nations’s high commissioner for human rights, offered a grim appraisal of the Syrian conflict, activists said the shelling resumed in earnest at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, with rockets and tank shells whistling

into parts of the city as often as every two minutes. It was the heaviest shelling in at least five days, activists said, particularly targeted at the neighborhood of Baba Amr. Videos uploaded on YouTube showed gray and black smoke billowing high overhead as shells crashed into the buildings, while the staccato rattle of machine gun fire sounded constantly. “The idea of safety doesn’t exist anymore in Baba Amr,” said Omar Shakir, an activist in the neighborhood reached via Skype. “Scary is all that exists.”

Lawmakers near accord on tax cut and jobless benefits

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Members of a House-Senate committee charged with writing a measure to extend a payroll tax holiday and unemployment benefits appeared to be nearing a deal Tuesday afternoon as Republicans and Democrats raced to complete an agreement over how to pay for some of the components, aides in both parties said. A one-stop destination for the latest political news — from The Times and other top sources. Plus opinion, polls, campaign data and video. A day after House Republican leaders said that they would offer a bill to extend the $100 billion payroll tax holiday for millions of working Americans without requiring spending cuts to pay for it, both parties moved to strike a broader deal that would also extend unemployment benefits and prevent a large cut in reimbursements to doctors who accept Medicare.

Lawmakers move forward with installation of pellet boiler THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — Lawmakers finally allowed the installation of the new nursing home's wood pellet boiler system to continue. Last week, the lawmakers voted to block the installation over concerns the county commission didn't have the authority to approve the work. Carroll County's new nursing home, Mountain View Community, was completed in the fall. County commissioners planned to use the old building to house Mountain View Community's wood pellet heating system, laundry and maintenance facili-

sengers to the flex route. The flex route got its name because the buses can deviate off their path by a fraction of a mile. The Blue Loon is a program of the Tri-County Community Action Program. On Monday Jan. 30, the Blue Loon's head, Bev Raymond, came to a county delegation meeting to seek $15,000 in support from county taxpayers. In Carroll County government, 14 state representatives, called the delegation, pass budgets which county commissioners manage with assistance from department heads. During the discussion, Raymond said the flex route service had provided 50 rides. The service operates from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on weekdays. "I know it's not great but we're just starting at this point," said Raymond of the 50 rides.

ties. The county received $400,000 worth of federal grants for purchasing the boilers and piping the heat from the old building to Mountain View Community. Using the old home to house the boilers was supposedly cheaper than putting the boilers in the new nursing home. In Carroll County government, a group of 14 state

representatives, called the delegation, passes county budgets, which commissioners manage with help from department heads. "We're going to get sued if we don't get it done," said Rep. Harry Merrow, of Ossipee, urging lawmakers to give commissioners the authority to continue the installation. "Let's get the gosh darn thing installed and move on." On Monday, lawmakers voted 10-0 to allow the installation to go forward. Lawmakers gave the approval after commissioners formally asked for it. Back in January the commissioners approved a $375,000 bid to install the boilers without seeking permission from the delegation.

Raymond added that Tri-County Community Action Program operates a similar bus service in Littleton area and the ridership tripled in the first year. When Rep. David Babson (R-Ossipee) asked how the Blue Loon counted a person who makes a round trip, Raymond replied that would count as two rides. "Did I understand you to say that since this flex route has gone into business, you've only had 50 rides? asked Babson. Rep. Frank McCarthy (R-Conway) said the flex route service cost about $650,000. The buses, which were paid for with federal money, cost $450,000 and the operating budget is about $200,000. Much of the budget is subsidized by the federal and state governments. Meanwhile fares are projected to generate $10,000. "Now you understand why the government is $15 trillion in debt," said McCarthy.

Further, McCarthy noticed the Blue Loon was projecting to receive $130,000 from grants. McCarthy wondered what happens when the grants run out. Raymond replied the grant money has always been available but the Blue Loon could try to make up for shortfalls with fund-raising and advertising sponsorships. Also the fare income could turn out better than the projections predict. She also said the Blue Loon gets its bus fuel at state of New Hampshire pumps, which means it doesn't pay the excise tax on gasoline. Rep. Harry Merrow (R-Ossipee) said people he talked to have noticed that the flex-route buses have been empty or a have very few riders. Meanwhile, he said, the shuttle buses seem to be getting riders. Rep. Mark McConkey (R-Freedom) said a subcommittee of the delegation recommends giving the Blue Loon $5,000. The delegation will pass the county budget in March.

"We're going to get sued if we don't get it done," said Rep. Harry Merrow. “Let's get the gosh darn thing installed and move on."

Bartlett residents deserve to have choices To the editor: My name is Erik Corbett and I am running for selectman in Bartlett this year. One of the reasons I am running is because I believe the residents of Bartlett deserve to have choices on Election Day. I ran in 2011 because I didn’t know who, or if anyone, would run for the open seat. This year I was asked by multiple citizens to run for varying reasons. One of those reasons is the reputation Bartlett has developed as being “unfriendly” to business. I experienced this first hand this summer when I went to town hall to ask if I needed a permit to hang a banner advertising a sale we were having at my business. I was told that banners aren’t allowed in Bartlett and given five pages of regulations on

signage in town. After reading through the regulations I believe my banner would’ve been legal and I hung it by the road and had a successful weekend. So we might just need better communication between the selectman’s office and the business community, but I have to ask why the town has imposed so many regulations on “job creators.” I propose a review of all town ordinances every five years. As economic conditions and the community changes we need to be open to changing the regulatory environment as well. Undoubtedly some regulations are needed and will remain but I believe it is a discussion we all need to have on a regular basis. Erik Corbett Glen

Spoiling the desire to repair grave stones To the editor: In response to Betty Wasson’s asking our “Leaders,” “Where’s the common sense?” No matter what level, be it local, state, national or international, all leaders’ agendas follow the lines of B.S. prevails and common sense fails.

Returning 1st Lt. David Morgenstern

In Bangor, Maine there is a group of people that greets each flight carrying deploying or returning U.S. troops. I first met a few of them in March 2010 when, as a new second lieutenant in the Marine Corps, I passed through on my way to Afghanistan. There was a greeting line of maybe a dozen or more, each shaking the hand of every single Marine and sailor — several hundred on our flight alone. For whatever reason, I vividly recall the feel of one elderly veteran’s hand as he shook mine: his skin was dry and slightly cooler than mine, his Summer, 2010: 1st Lt.

We Need a Second Party Watching the Republican Party struggling to agree on a presidential candidate, one wonders whether the G.O.P. shouldn’t just sit this election out — just give 2012 a pass. You know how in Scrabble sometimes you look at your seven letters and you’ve got only vowels that spell nothing? What do you do? You go back to the pile. You throw your letters back and hope to pick up better ones to work with. That’s what Republican primary voters seem to be doing. They just keep going back to the pile but still coming up with only vowels that spell nothing. There’s a reason for that: Their pile is out of date. The party has let itself become the captive of conflicting ideological bases: anti-abortion advocates, anti-immigration activists, social conservatives worried about the sanctity of marriage, libertarians who want to shrink government, and anti-tax advocates who want to drown government in a bathtub. Sorry, but you can’t address the great challenges America faces today with that incoherent mix of hardened positions. I’ve argued that maybe we need a third party to break open our political system. But that’s a long shot. What we definitely and urgently need is a second party — a coherent Republican opposition that is offering constructive conservative proposals on the key issues and is ready for strategic compromises to advance its interests and those of the country. Without that, the best of the Democrats — who have been willing to compromise — have no partners and the worst have a free pass for their own magical thinking. Since such a transformed Republican Party is highly unlikely, maybe the best thing would be for it to get crushed in this election and forced into a fundamental rethink — something the Democrats had to go through when they lost three in a row between 1980 and 1988. We need a “Different Kind of Republican” the way Bill Clinton gave us a “Different Kind of Democrat.” Because when I look at America’s three greatest challenges today, I don’t see the Republican candidates offering realistic answers to any of them. The first is responding to the challenges and opportunities of an era in which globalization and the information technology revolution have dramatically intensified, creating a hyperconnected world. This is a world in which education, innovation and talent will be rewarded more than ever. This is a world in which there will be no more “developed” and “developing countries,” but only HIEs (high-imagination-enabling countries) and LIEs (low-imaginationenabling countries). And this is a world that America is hard-wired to thrive in — provided we invest in better infrastructure, postsecondary education for all, more talented immigrants, regulations that incentivize risk-taking and prevent recklessness, and governmentfinanced research to push out the boundaries of science and let our venture capitalists pluck the best flowers. There is no way we can thrive in this era without this kind of public-private

partnership. We need strong government, but limited government, which enables our companies and individuals to compete globally. It’s the kind of public-private partnership that Republicans like Dwight Eisenhower and George H.W. Bush embraced. The second of our great long-term challenges are our huge debt and entitlement obligations. They can’t be fixed without raising and reforming taxes and trimming entitlements and defense. We absolutely cannot just cut entitlements and defense. That would imperil the personal security and national security of every American. We must also reform taxes to raise more revenues. But when all the Republican candidates last year said they would not accept a deal with Democrats that involved even $1 in tax increases in return for $10 in spending cuts, the G.O.P. cut itself off from reality. It became a radical party, not a conservative one. And for the candidates to wrap themselves in a cartoon version of Ronald Reagan — a real conservative who raised taxes, including the gasoline tax, when he discovered his own cuts had gone too far — is fraudulent. Our third great challenge is how we power our future — without dangerously polluting and warming the earth — as the global population grows from 7 billion to 9 billion people by 2050, and more and more of them want to drive, eat and live like Americans. Two billion more people who want to live like us? We can’t drill our way out of that challenge, which is why energy efficiency and clean power will be the next great global industry. Real conservatives — like Richard Nixon, the father of the Environmental Protection Agency, and George H.W. Bush, the author of the first cap-and-trade deal to curb acid rain — believe in conserving. The current Republican candidates are so captured by the oil and coal lobbies that they can’t think seriously about this huge opportunity for energy innovation. Until the G.O.P. stops being radical and returns to being conservative, it won’t provide what the country needs most now — competition — competition with Democrats on the issues that will determine whether we thrive in the 21st century. We need to hear conservative fiscal policies, energy policies, immigration policies and public-private partnership concepts — not radical ones. Would somebody please restore our second party? The country is starved for a grown-up debate. Thomas Friedman is a columnist for The New York Times. His blog is located at www.thomaslfriedman. com.

discussion during the 30-minute hearing focused on the pending teachers' contract. The school board is proposing a budget for 201213 that is down 2.08 percent over last year excluding 10 other warrant articles. The proposed budget is $7,872,001, which is down $165,270 over this past year. School superintendent Carl Nelson explained the budget represented a savings of about 6 cents per $1,000 of property valuation. However, if all of the warrant articles, including the budget, are approved, there would be an overall increase of 22 cents per $1,000 of property valuation, or 2.78 percent.

Nelson went over the budget and explained proposed increases and decreases of note. Among the increases is $70,931 in salaries, which includes an increase in performance contingency for support staff/administration, who would receive at most a 3.5 percent raise based on the Social Security Index (the SSI was zero last year and no raises were awarded). Staff is rated on four levels from distinguished, getting 3.5 percent, to proficient getting 3 percent; and down to unsatisfactory receiving nothing. An additional kindergarten teacher and stipends for the Professional Learning Communities leaders are also part of the increase in salaries. "If we don't need the additional kindergarten teacher the we'll reduce that line," Nelson said.

Other increases to the budget include $65,434 in regular high school tuition to the high school (143 Bartlett students are projected to attend high school next year and the figure increases to 151 the following year); $32,611 in retirement; $11,055 in food service (due to an increase in kitchen help; increase in salaries and benefits; and $2,800 in repairs); $6,249 in books/information resource all grades (a new math seers for grades K-6); $5,000 in repairs/building materials; $4,776 in FIA; $4,770 in utilities/fuel oil; $3,452 in the district's SAU share; $3,800 in contracted services — physical/occupational therapy; $2,911 in utilities/electricity; $2,700 dues for the office of the principal; $2,581 in transportation, fuel buses; $1,200 contracted services — student grading (parent info); $835 in contracted services — diagnostic services; $700 contracted services with Tin Mountain; $633 insurance for school buses; $602 equipment/furniture; $600 contracted services — student loads (Bartlett Education Association negotiation); $501 in workers compensation/unemployment; $400 contracted services — testing; $337 in supplies, building cleaning; $251 in communication, phone transportation; $243 for the high school tuition share of a bond; $150 dues to the New Hampshire School Board's Association); $94 in issuance — Multi-Peril; $50 repairs equipment, health; $40 in music for All State concerts; $36 in life insurance; and $10 in insurance-truck. Decreases include $211,180 in special education tuition; $92,952 in contingency for the school board for changes to the state teacher retirement; $51,879 in health insurance; $5,000 in course reimbursement; $3,356 in dental insurance; $1,320 in extended school year program; $1,301 in repairs, bus labor (garage); $1,000 Medicaid billing services; $869 in supplies — other (bus parts/tires); $800 in contracted services — operation/maintenance of plant; $873 in supplies — instructional; $635 in contracted services-incinerator; $500 for an audit; $400 in uniforms; $327 contracted services — repairs principal's office; $314 in utilities, water; $227 student accident insurance; $200 in printing/community school; $133 for high school tuition, the high school share of a maintenance trust fund; and $42 utilities/telephones. New two-year contract Bartlett ranks 153rd in minimum starting teacher salary out of 160 districts, according to the New Hampshire Department of Education, coming in at $28,000. The state's average salary for starting teachers with BA degrees was $33,603, excluding benefits, in 2010-11. The average salary for all teachers in the state in 2010-11, according to N.H. Department of Education, was $52,706, excluding benefits. Bartlett's average teacher salary (27.2 teachers) is above the state average, coming in at $56,990 while Conway's average teacher salary for 170.2 teachers is $40,857, excluding benefits. Twenty Bartlett teachers made over $50,000 in 2010; 15 of those made over $62,000; two of them made over $70,000. Health insurance had jumped over 50 percent in the previous three years until this year's slight dip. Two years ago the community absorbed a 27.5 percent increase in health insurance (an increase of $168,682 over the prior year). Bartlett teachers pay a zero deductible for their health insurance and will continue to do so until a new contract is reached. Switching to a district-funded $500 deductible, which the Conway teachers' union agreed to do last year, has been explored by the school board, but members and school Superintendent Nelson said there really are no financial savings. Because of the size of the teachers' union, which is less than 100 members, Nelson explained there really is no savings by going to the $500 deductible. Because of the language Bartlett carries in its contract, board member Dan Perley said the board has a clause that states taxpayers will pay 80 percent of the lowest cost plan, and if there is a lower rate for a comparable plan, the board has the option to switch. In 1995 when principal Joe Voci was initially hired, there were roughly 340 students and 22 regusee next page

lar education teachers at the K-8 school, creating an average class size of about 15 students. Next year's projection is for 244 students and 32 teachers for a 7.6-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio. School principal Joe Voci said he is proud of the staff he has and appreciates the long-term commitment the educators have made to this community. "We have a lot of experienced staff who have stayed and are on the top of their game," Voci said. "They've been here 20 to 30 years, and then we have another big group that's been here between six and 12 years, which I believe is a really good thing. They've come here, built homes and stayed in the community. One of the reasons we've been so successful is we have a core of faculty — they get it and are really committed. We have awesome people in this building." Under the previous contract, teachers received back-to-back $2,700 raises and would have continued to do so as it was one of the first contracts in the state negotiated under the controversial Evergreen Law, which was repealed last year by New Hampshire legislators. The raises will continue, however, under the latest proposed new two-year contract, negotiated by Perley and Ryan Murphy for the school board and Carol Penza, Vance Pickering and Kurt Erickson for the Bartlett Education Association. Now 23 of the 32 teachers at Josiah Bartlett will received $2,700 raises in each of the next two years. In essence, three-quarters of the teaching staff will have received a $10,800 raise if they remain with the district into 2014. A new teacher on the lowest step ladder would receive a $500 raise. Bartlett has not had any teachers leave in the past four years. According to last year's annual school report, 10 teachers have worked at Josiah Bartlett Elementary School at least 22 years while one member has been teaching at the school for 44 years. Perley defended the raises and so did his colleagues, who voted unanimously 5-0 to support the teachers' contract, which is Article 2 on the school warrant.

Town-by-town comparison of teacher salaries The following statistics are available on the New Hampshire Department of Education's website. Teacher Average Salary in Public School Districts for School Year 2010-2011 Average teacher salary in New Hampshire is $52,706. "It ultimately comes down to a business perspective," he said Feb. 7. "This says that a job well done is still recognized. If you do the math, the increases are still below 5 percent." "We try to stay competitive," Vicki Harlow, board chairman, said. "We try to be fair in negotiations, contracts are negotiated by both sides.." "The voters are the ones who said yes" to the previous two years of raises, Perley said, adding, "I think it's a community expressing the importance of education. We're fortunate to retain the talent we have." With a continual drop in enrollment, Perley said the board may face some tough decisions down the road. "If the long-term trend continues, we'll have to look at decreasing our staff." Perley said the board does try to encourage a healthy turnover in staffing. "Is there a minimum retirement age?" asked former school board member Bill Fabrizio. "You say you're trying to encourage healthy turnover, but there doesn't seem to be a retirement age." "I tell the staff all the time, how do you want to be remembered," Voci said. "You can sit at your desk and watch the world go by, or go out at the top of your game. You decide." The district does not have a minimum or maximum retirement age. Aside from the budget, there are 10 other warrant articles to be decided March 6. No. 2 seeks voter approval to approve the cost item included in the collective bargaining agreement reached between the Bartlett School Board

Bartlett — 27.2 teachers at an average teacher salary of $56,990. Conway — 170.2 teachers at an average teacher salary of $40,857. see COMPARISON page 10

and the Bartlett Education Association which calls for an estimated increase of $96,397 for 2012-13 and $96,636 in 2013-14, representing increases in salaries and benefits. No. 3 seeks voter approval to raise $71,000 for the purchase of a new 24-passenger school bus and to authorize the withdrawal of $40,000 from the school bus capital reserve fund to help offset the cost. No. 4 seeks $14,000 to initiate the next phase of the elementary school's technology program. No. 5 asks voter approval to place $15,000 into the School Bus Capital Reserve Fund. The funds will be offset in part by any National Forest Reserve funds. No. 6 seeks voter approval to create a new expendable trust to be known as a maintenance trust fund and then raise and appropriate $50,000 to go into it. No. 7 seeks $19,380 to initiate the next phase of roof replacement at the Josiah Bartlett Elementary School. No. 8 asks voters to raise and appropriate $84,000 to replace the water line at the Josiah Bartlett Elementary School and authorize the withdrawal of $51,000 from the capital receive fund (maintenance) designed for that purpose in 1999. No. 9 asks voters permission to discontinue the maintenance capital reserve fund created in 1999. No. 10 seeks voter approval to approve a new three-year tuition contract with the Jackson School District for the Jackson seventh and eighth grade students to attend Josiah Bartlett Elementary School. No. 11 is to transact any other business.

CONWAY — The State Meet has begun and the Kennett High girls alpine team made the first splash of the week long championships by ruling the slopes at Cranmore on Tuesday to successfully defend their state title. The Eagles won both the giant slalom and slalom to cap off their sensational winter. Kennett defeated 15 other schools by totaling 745 points to win the day. The Eagles were followed by Hanover, 712; Plymouth, 699.5; Bedford, 646.5; Lebanon, 618; Hollis-Brookline, 599; Bishop Guertin, 591; Souhegan, 577; Kingswood, 557; ConVal, 550; Windham, 462; Laconia, 416; Milford, 384; John Stark, 255; Pembroke Academy, 166; and Portsmouth, 142. “We couldn’t have done it is we didn’t ski like a team,” Laurel Zengilowski, head ski coach at Kennett High, said, Tuesday afternoon. “We had two girls who had to hike in the slalom and they did and that was the difference.” Kennett topped Plymouth and Hanover by six points each in the afternoon slalom. Senior Katie Burton, of Kennett, won the two-run race by over three seconds in 71.32 (35.84 for the first run and 35.68 for the second). Burton’s chief rival for the state skimeister title, Annie D’Elia, of Plymouth, was second in 74.64 while Kennett’s Elise Clancy grabbed third, 75.88. see EAGLES page 21

The politics of envy and what to do about it BY MICHAEL KLINE When you feel envious, is it because you really want something, or is wanting things just a habit? Sometimes we say we want something, but we really don’t. Envy is not a friend. The world is a circle, and there is always someone much richer and much poorer than you. Envy is a major waste of time, as it cannot ever be satisfied. Lately there’s been a lot of talk about envy in the news. The phrase “politics of envy” seems to be one of the new “code phrases” that have lots of different meanings. I don’t use code words. I am clearly stating in my opinion. If you look at what other people have, and you think you want it, you can choose to complain about it, or you can empower yourself to do something about it. On occasion, I am verbally assaulted with words like “easy for you – you have money.” In my volunMichael Kline teer work, I hear people say things like, “there’s no help for the poor to get started, everyone wants to keep us down,” or “no one will lend me money or give me a grant, or give me a chance, so I can’t start anything.” Knowing these people are suffering and have been fed (or fed themselves) a lot of brainwashing crap, I try to answer with encouragement. To be honest, my true feeling is that of astonishment and I want to say WTF (win the future)! I could almost say I understand how Mitt Romney must feel when he talks the politics of envy. (Oh relax, I said almost!) Give or take a few hundred million dollars, I’m wealthy too, although still poor enough to be in a much higher tax bracket than real millionaires! My wealth is measured in blessings of family, friends, an ability to work, and personal traits such as creativity and tenacity, that allow me to create whatever I need. Speaking about material wealth, at the poorest point in life I slept in my car and showered at work while between couch surfing and finding a room for rent. These days, I am enjoying my personal and financial freedom as I have defined it for me. I suspect many more affluent folks would freak if they had to live within my means, but as I said the world is a circle and this stuff is all relative. My point is that I am qualified to make the argument I am about to make, so if you find yourself wanting more from life, pay attention. I can’t imagine how most people couldn’t achieve at least enough to be comfortable and take care of themselves and their family. Mostly, it takes wanting something. I mean really, really want it. Most people don’t have a clue how to figure out what they really want, so start with this clue to know what you don’t want: If you are not willing to do the really hard work to get something, you’re not talking about something you really want, or you would just shut up and do it. I really wanted out of poverty – it turns out, I don’t enjoy poverty and I never want to see it again. Today I have a home I love, in a neighsee KLINE page 14

I don’t like Facebook Charitable giving BY DAVID F. BROCHU

I guess I am getting old, but I find very little to like about Facebook. I really just don't get it. Essentially, it’s a website created by an immature college student in a fit of infantile rage toward his now former girlfriend. He and his buddies expanded on the idea by posting the "faces" of various young women they knew. These pictures, of course, elicited comments about these women. Mark Zuckerberg's genius was in recognizing the human species’ desire to cluster with those most like us. The results of that David F.

I find one of the best things about living in this area is the amount of charitable giving in both time and money of the people who reside here. I don’t know the specific statistics, but the number of non-profit organizations that provide services in the area is great. These organizations survive based on the goodwill and pocketbooks of many of you. Brian G. Kelsch In order to get the government to give you a tax break you must be sure to meet certain requirements.

Home 'sweet' home for new owners of Jackson bakery JACKSON — The bakery in the center of Jackson has a new name and new owners who came to Jackson the long way. The little bakery, located next to the post office on Black Mountain Road, has been serving customers for over 25 years. Brian and Amy Sweet said they chose to change the name to Backcountry Bakery and Cafe because it connects two things they love: exploring the mountains and whiling away a day at a bakery. "They're both the reason we moved to the Whites," Brian said. "We needed a project, and the bakery fulfills that desire. But we knew we had to live in a place where we had great access to skiing and hiking." The Sweets indeed came to Jackson the long way. After owning a small bookstore in Washington state for the last eight years, the Sweets took a year off and rode their bicycles over 7,000 miles from California to Washington DC and then Portugal to eastern Urkaine. They then sent their bikes home and flew on to China where they taught English for two months. At the end of that stint, they decided it was time to come "home" to America. Brian was familiar with the White Mountain region, having hiked the Appalachian Trail in the mid-1990s. From China, they found out the names of the owners of the Jackson bakery and sent them an e-mail asking if they wanted to sell. They were surprised to get a "yes" response, and the Sweets were on a plane back to the U.S. two weeks later. Another month after that they found themselves elbow deep in flour and brown sugar as proud owners of the bakery. As for changes planned at the bakery, "We're just going to offer more of everything," Brian said. "We're going to have more fresh-baked goodies, a fresh and larger sandwich menu, more books on the White Mountains, and, of course, a great cup of coffee that you can linger over." The Sweets say their first month of business has been brisk. From locals coming in for their daily breakfast bagel and coffee, to tourists coming in

Brian and Amy Sweet, new owners of the Backcountry Bakery and Cafe in Jackson.

after a ski for a piece of Amy's Baklava, pumpkin pie or cranberry orange scone, the new owners and their small staff are definitely burning the midnight oil keeping up with all the baking. The Backcountry Bakery and Cafe is located at

18 Black Mountain Road, right in the middle of Jackson. It is open seven days a week, year round, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. You can reach the bakery at (603) 383-6511 or backcountrybakery@gmail. com. Website is

borhood I love, in the town I love, because I worked seven days a week for most of 20 years. Smarter people might have accomplished much more in less time, but this is how I know that with enough passion and tenacity, anyone can do it eventually. We’ve renovated and flipped eight homes over the years, while most people would not be willing to live in renovation hell for two years at a time only to sell their home and move again and again. Constant disruption and stress is a price I’m willing to pay to get what I want. It’s just choices. Our current home (like every previous home) we bought at a steal which took three years of househunting to find. Most people don’t have that level of patience, so they might make a different choice. Patience is a price I’m willing to pay to get what I want. We’ve been working on our house for 14 or 15 hours a day for the last few weeks. I feel like I did 20 years ago when we did our first house – excited, proud, rewarded, exhausted and aching. It’s a price I’m willing to pay to get what I want. The reward is I have no complaints and most everything I want. Nothing is free, but everything is affordable. Anything that costs money can be gotten without it.

You don’t have to be particularly smart; I’ve seen plenty of idiots achieve great results just out of pure commitment. You don’t need money or friends – you can make both. You don’t need looks or style. You have to figure out what you want, determine what it will cost to get it, then go about paying that price. Go get ‘em!

tributions must be made to qualified recipients which are generally 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organizations or religious organizations. As much as you may think so, payments to your grown children are not to a qualifying organization and are never deductible as charitable contribution. If your contribution entitles you to receive goods or services, including admission to a charity dinner, theatrical performance or sporting event, you can deduct only the amount that exceeds the fair market value of the benefit received. Volunteerism is not a tax-deductible item. Unfortunately, you can’t put a value on your donated time and deduct that from your taxable income. However, one of the most often overlooked charitable contribution is the mileage to and from the various events in which you do volunteer. The IRS allows you 14 cents per mile driven to be deducted. This can add up to significant savings if you are frequently attending meetings or charitable functions. The most common contribution claimed is cash and property donations. The IRS now requires more substantiation on supporting such contributions; specifically for amounts greater than $249. For donations under $250 you should have bank statements, canceled checks or the like to support your deduction. They no longer will accept your verbal statement that you put a $100 a week in the basket at church. For contributions $250 or greater the IRS requires that you obtain written acknowledgment from the recipient organization indicating the amount of

a school official must submit a short essay to Berlin City Auto Group by April 30, describing how their school would use the donation. Berlin City’s Brand Ambassadors, a group of employees that lead the dealerships’ community involvement campaigns, will assess the needs of each school and select the winners accordingly. From each vehicle sold at its six dealerships throughout New England, Berlin City dedicates a portion of sales to the Drive for Education program. For more information about Berlin City Auto Group’s Drive for Education Foundation, visit: http:// the cash and/or a description of property contributed. The acknowledgment must say whether the organization provided any goods or services in exchange for the gift and, if so, must provide a description and an estimate of the value of those goods or services. If you donate property that you determine has a value greater than $5,000, you must obtain a qualified appraisal and keep it for your records. If you’re planning on donating property valued at $500,000 or more you will need to attach the appraisal to your tax return. If you do need to have an appraisal done for donated property, there are specific guidelines that need to be valued with regards to the appraiser and the timing of the appraisal. Form 8283 also needs to be attached to the return and signed by both the appraiser and the recipient organization If you have stocks that have appreciated you should consider donating the stock instead of selling the stock and donating the cash proceeds. If you sell the appreciated stock first you will have to report the capital gain and then deduct the cash contribution. If you donate the stock itself, no gain is recognized and your donation will equal the FMV of stock. Please remember these are general rules and you should always speak with your trusted advisers about you particular situation.

abused online). But there’s no doubt he tapped into something powerful. However, the yearning to connect with others makes people surrender information willingly to Facebook that the government would need a warrant to obtain. And everything posted becomes the property of Facebook. Everything. What makes us think a private company will be any more responsible with all of that power than the government. We need only to look at the banks and credit card companies to see how information is corrupted for profit. Will Facebook be any better? We'll soon find out. Facebook's Initial Public Offering (IPO) is scheduled for sometime in April so we have about two months of (never-ending) chatter by investment analysts (like me) who barely know how to log onto Facebook, let alone fully understand what it is. But I promise you that this will be my one and only Facebook article. That being the case, let me answer a few questions. What is an Initial Pubic Offering (IPO)? An IPO is the first time a company sells its shares to the public. What is everyone talking about when they say Facebook will have a valuation of $100,000,000? A company's valuation refers to the stock price times all of the company’s shares, issued or not. If Facebook issues a million shares at $100.00 a share, their valuation is $100,000,000. The same is true if they issue 100,000 shares, representing 10 percent of the company, for $10,000,000. In this case, the other $90,000,000 in value stays in the company. What is price-to-earnings ratio or P/E? Stock prices for different companies are all over the board. To compare them, we need to standardize them. The PE ratio does that. P/E is a standard measure of whether a stock is expensive or not. Here's how. Company X's stock is trading at $10. The company has earnings (profit after expenses) of $1. That means when we pay $10 for the stock, we are paying $10 right now to buy this year’s $1 in earnings. Price/Earnings = 10 P/E. Company Y's stock is trading at $100 a share. Company Y has $10 in earnings. Company Y has the


same P/E: $100/$10 = 10 P/E. In this example, the stocks are trading at the same relative value even though their share prices are drastically different. Facebook is likely to have a very high P/E as the stock will undoubtedly trade at a high number, yet the company’s current earnings are not that great. Buyers beware. How can I buy the Facebook IPO? The short answer is: You can't. Hot IPOs, and Facebook is sizzling, are awarded to the investment banks’ best clients (read, biggest). The investors will buy and sell their positions before you and I can even enter an order. They will make a killing selling their positions to the first person through the door. You don’t want to be one of those people. My recommendation is to observe and marvel, but stay away. The deck isn’t just stacked against you; you’re not even sitting at the same table. How Facebook prices its offering will tell us a lot about what kind of company it’s going to be. If the stock is priced fairly, it will come out high, drop quickly and drift higher toward a reasonable valuation, signaling a company that cares about its shareholders. Should the stock be priced into the stratosphere only to drop precipitously and then languish there, we will know Facebook isn’t a company working for its shareholders, but only for one man. As I’d said: I don't like Facebook, but that’s just me. David F.

Lions Club fishing derby this weekend A reminder if you wanted to take part in the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library program drawing for the non-artist and haven’t signed up you better hurry as the program begins on Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. at the library. Don’t forget to register for the Lovell Lions Club fishing derby on Feb. 18 and 19. Entrants can fish any lake or pond in Oxford County. To pre-register contact Cliff Hill at (207) 928-3744 or sign up at AJ’s in Stoneham. Registrations on Feb. 18 and 19 will be held on both days at the North Lovell Grange Hall on Route 5 beginning at 5 a.m. Also at the library is the open stage with Davy Sturtevant on Feb. 20 Monday evening starting at 6:30 p.m. Davy had a chance to show his style of music at the Taste of Lovell last Sunday. This popular library fundraiser, with all those yummy goodies made with chocolate as one of the most visible ingredients, is always a huge success. The Tabitha and Stephen King Room was set up cafe style so those who chose to could sit and enjoy every sinful bite. The ladies had the tables set up so that both sides were accessible so if you saw something at the head of the table you had easy access. The day was blustery but that didn’t stop the members of the community from showing up to enjoy the efforts of the bakers. Proceeds go toward the many programs of the library. This years winners were: first place - chocolate turtle cheesecake by Sharon Kelly, second place - Caribbean fudge pie by Jacquie Stearns, and third place, raisin-filled sugar

cookies by Pat Stearns. All entries were wonderful and thanks to all who took part. Another program at the library for all ages will be held at the end of February school vacation. The movie “Don’t Judge a Book by Its Movie” will be shown on Friday, Feb. 24 at 5 p.m. There will be free pizza which must be ordered a head of time so if you plan to attend sign up at the library. The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library has sent out a questionnaire to all members of card holders of the library. The library is asking the community to help improve or change policies at the library so that the library can better serve the community. Your help, by filling out and returning the questionnaire to the Library will help the board to make our library the best in the area. Suggestions and new ideas are always welcome. In New Suncook News the PTA announced the winners in the Reflection Arts contest. Eleven New Suncook students took part in the contest where they created a piece of art with the theme Diversity Means. The student is divided into two category divisions Primary and Intermediate. The first place winner in primary was Rachel Frum. The winner in the intermediate was Malina Voter with Christina Scheid in second and Luna Barrionuevo in third.

Eagles shine in their lone home cross country ski meet –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


CONWAY — In it’s one and only home meet this winter, the Kennett High boys and girls cross country ski teams turned in a number of fine performances last week in North Conway’s Whitaker Woods. Junior Hannah Benson remained undefeated on the season while fellow junior Sean Doherty and the KHS boys team continued their perfect streak. “I think there were 197 registered for the race and we had 175 finishers and nine schools...what a big day,” Steve Vosburgh, Eagles’ head coach, said. “Weather and snow were perfect and the team was psyched to be on their home course to show their stuff.”

The Kennett boys scored 388 points to take team honors followed by Interlakes, 367; Moultonborough, 348; White Mountain, 351; Plymouth, 329; Kingswood, 315; Derryfield, 309; and Gorham, 87. Sixty-two boys raced on the day with Doherty winning in a time of 15:00. Teammate and fellow junior Torin LaLiberte was second, 15:55, while Joe Smith, of Moultonborough, was third, 16:51. Other Kennett finishers were Donovan Spaulding, sixth, 18:00; Peter Haine, seventh, 18:13; Liam Martin, 13th, 18:31; Malcolm Badger, 15th, 18:34; PJ Benson, 18th, 18:45; Phillip Mathieu, 41st, 21:59; and Mike Knorp, 55th, 24:08. Hannah Benson topped 49 other girls in 16:53.

Jessa Fogel, of Derryfield, was second, 18:41; and Moultonborough’s Brianna McKinley took third, 19:34. Other KHS skiers were Lily Brennan, 21st, 22:37; Mae Van Rossum, 28th, 24:24; and Gillian Wilcox, 36th, 26:05. White Mountain and Kingswood skied to a tie for the team victory with 362 points followed by Interlakes, 352; Moultonborough, 347; Derryfield, 341; Plymouth, 327; and Kennett, 324. The Eagles are back in action today in the Division II State Championships at Great Glen Trails in Pinkham Notch. The Championshlps have been moved from Lebanon due to a lack of snow.

EAGLES from page 11

“Katie was first, Elyse third and Molly (Van Duersen) seventh so we needed one more good score to win it. (Elizabeth Welch) Welchy fell in the first run but hiked and finished and then Brooke (Lemerise) was sixth after the first run but fell and tweaked her knee on the second and couldn’t finish. It all came down to Kayla Morin, who was in the top 10 after the first run, but fell on the second. She hiked and was able to finish. We ended up winning by six points which was huge, it could have gone a whole lot of different ways if our girls didn’t finish. This was probably one of the best instances of team skiing I’ve ever seen.” Morin, who was in the top 10 with a first run of 40.13, fell, hiked and still finished her second run in 53.42, to finish 30th overall in 93.55. Welch, who fell on her first run and posted a time of 59.93, and came back strong in the second run to finish in 42.6 for an overall time of 102.53 to take 37th out of 71 skiers who finished both runs. Fellow KHS skimeister candidate Gillian Wilcox was 34th in slalom in 97.34. For the team scores Kennett had 366 points to top Plymouth, 360, and Hanover, 360. Plymouth’s D’Elia won the morning GS, posting

the fastest two runs (44.03 and 43.85), 87.88. Fellow Bobcat Tegan Mosenthal finished second, 90.28 while

Burton took third, 91.07. Other KHS finishers were Clancy, fourth, 91.16; Welch, eighth, 94.27; Van Duersen, 10th; Lemerise, 12th, 95.69; and Libby Karabelas, 13th, 95.87. Wilcox was 26th, 104.44. Kennett won the GS by 27 points with 379 points followed by Hanover, 352; and Plymouth, 339.5. Based on their results, Burton, Clancy and Van Duersen have earned invitations to race in the Meet of Champions at Cannon on March 7. “It was a really, really good day for the Eagles,” Zengilowski said, smiling. The Division II State Cross Country Championships take center stage today when the

action shifts to Great Glen Trails beginning at 9:30 a.m. The championships were moved from Lebanon due to no snow.

By Holiday Mathis crave new experience. At the same time, you are tied to your responsibilities. You’re so convincing, though, that you just may be able to charm those who need you into joining you on a madcap adventure. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may start off the day feeling at odds with those around you. But once you adjust your attitude, your day fills up with the qualities of harmony and union. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Scattered efforts are still efforts. There is an apparent lack of predetermination to the day’s events, and yet your actions will be like dandelion seeds, riding on the wind and taking root wherever they land. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You like it when the ball is in your court. It means it’s your chance to shine. However, it may feel today like dozens of balls are being hit back to you at once. Take it easy. All balls can be returned in due time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your head is filling with fanciful ideas. There is so much delightful influence around you, and you are extraordinarily receptive to the best of it. Ask for guidance through your imagination. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 15). Your opportunities multiply as they are seized. In March, choose your focus and stay with it. April turns friendships into love. You’ll earn your money differently in May. Your personal life will shift to accommodate new priorities in the summer. Make fun important, and see more of the world in August. Scorpio and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 20, 31, 33 and 14.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). This day will be touched by unusual happenings, idiosyncratic people and strange experiences that seem to come from out of the blue. You enjoy the shakeup. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It will be so challenging to establish consistent practices in your personal and professional life that you may give up, deciding instead to move with the whims of the moment. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There will always be those “Chicken Little” types who, with the slightest provocation, will run around saying the sky is falling. You know better. The sky, in fact, will never fall. If anything, it will rise. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Hit the pause button for perspective. When you take a breather, you’ll be able to rise above your situation and give some thought to the mark you’d like to leave on the people and situations you encounter. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may not feel like your usual powerful self. Instead you realize you’re someone who is just trying to get through a situation -- to slog it out with the rest of the players. Knowing you’re not alone may help you soldier on. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may jump toward the sun, but your point is not to land there. You just want to get off the ground. Your reasonable aims will be successful, and a few of your unreasonable ones will also triumph. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are more than a billion organisms in a teaspoon of soil. Everything you encounter, even only for a brief moment, will be changed by you. The very ground is changed because you walked on it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

Today is Wednesday, Feb. 15, the 46th day of 2012. There are 320 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 15, 1952, a funeral was held at Windsor Castle for Britain’s King George VI, who had died nine days earlier. On this date: In 1764, the city of St. Louis was established by Pierre Laclede and Auguste Chouteau. In 1812, American jeweler Charles Lewis Tiffany, the founder of Tiffany & Co., was born in Killingly, Conn. In 1898, the U.S. battleship Maine mysteriously blew up in Havana Harbor, killing more than 260 crew members and bringing the United States closer to war with Spain. In 1933, President-elect Franklin D. Roosevelt escaped an assassination attempt in Miami that mortally wounded Chicago Mayor Anton J. Cermak; gunman Giuseppe Zangara was executed more than four weeks later. In 1942, the British colony Singapore surrendered to Japanese forces during World War II. In 1953, Tenley Albright became the first American woman to win the world figure skating championship, held in Davos, Switzerland. In 1961, 73 people, including an 18-member U.S. figure skating team en route to the World Championships in Czechoslovakia, were killed in the crash of a Sabena Airlines Boeing 707 in Belgium. In 1965, Canada’s new maple-leaf flag was unfurled in ceremonies in Ottawa. In 1971, Britain and Ireland “decimalised” their currencies, making one pound equal to 100 new pence instead of 240 pence. In 1982, 84 men were killed when a huge oildrilling rig, the Ocean Ranger, sank off the coast of Newfoundland during a fierce storm. In 1989, the Soviet Union announced that the last of its troops had left Afghanistan, after more than nine years of military intervention. In 1992, a Milwaukee jury found that Jeffrey Dahmer was sane when he killed and mutilated 15 men and boys. Benjamin L. Hooks announced plans to retire as executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. One year ago: Protesters swarmed Wisconsin’s capitol after Gov.

Page 26 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I married “Andy” a year ago. He has three children from a prior marriage. He had a vasectomy eight years ago, but promised he’d have it reversed so we could have a child together. He didn’t get around to it, but I’m pregnant anyway. At first we felt it was our miracle baby. However, 15 weeks later, Andy is now “sure” the baby isn’t his. Things have gotten so bad that I moved out of our house. Abby, I have NEVER been unfaithful. A paternity test will prove he’s the father, but that can’t be done until after our baby is born. I have scheduled an appointment with a therapist, but I’m not sure I want to reconcile with him. Have other readers been in this situation? What was the outcome? -- PREGNANT AND ALONE ON THE EAST COAST DEAR PREGNANT AND ALONE: Yes, other readers have been in your situation. In those cases, the vasectomy had somehow reversed itself without surgery. (Perhaps it wasn’t done properly in the first place.) Your husband should consult a urologist and have his sperm levels checked. It could provide the “proof” he’s looking for a lot sooner than your due date. Because this has been emotionally devastating for you -which is understandable -- talking with a therapist will be beneficial regardless of what you decide about your marriage. DEAR ABBY: My stepson, “David,” lives with my husband and me and our 9-year-old son. He is 20 and has been with us since he was a child because his mother couldn’t control him. He had major problems in school -- detentions, failing grades, etc. -- and has been nothing but trouble. David is disrespectful, a chronic liar and a thief. He has even threatened to kill

Help Wanted



David’s mother bought him a car and his grandmother gives him money to buy anything he wants -- including guns. He won’t get a driver’s license, refuses to get a job, won’t help around the house and lies to people, saying we don’t feed him. He has even said his dad beats him every day. I want my husband to give David a choice: Get his license, get a job and help around the house, or get out, but my husband refuses. His excuse is, where will he go? My husband works out of town occasionally, and when he’s gone I have our 9-year-old sleep with me and I lock the door because I’m afraid of David. What can we do? -- AFRAID OF MY STEPSON DEAR AFRAID: Because your husband is unwilling to assert his authority, there’s nothing you can do. Since he can’t or won’t get his son the help he needs, for YOUR son’s safety you should make other living arrangements. The situation you have described is dangerous because David has access to weapons. Was he ever given a psychological evaluation? If not, he should have one as a condition of continuing to stay with you and his father. It may provide you with some sorely needed insight because you need more help than I -- or anyone -- can offer in a letter. Without professional help for him, I predict that your stepson will wind up in trouble with the law. DEAR ABBY: At what point is a person considered to be addicted to prescription drugs? -- BORDERLINE IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR BORDERLINE: When the person increases the dosage beyond what has been prescribed, lies about it and/or tries to get the drugs by devious means.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860
