How will trafﬁc change if only southern leg of bypass is built? State DOT is doing a study to ﬁnd out BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — If you build it will they come? And what happens if you only build part of it? The state is trying to ﬁgure that out with the Conway bypass and will conduct a trafﬁ c study that will determine what will happen to trafﬁ c patterns if the southern leg of the long-delayed road is built, and the central and northern sections are delayed, or never constructed. The study should be out this fall. The department has done similar studies before, Department of Transportation civil engineer Don Lyford said at a meeting with Conway staff and three selectmen on Tuesday, but “all it says is the central and northern sections should follow.” None of them address what happens if they don’t. “Whether it’s ﬁve years or 25 years before they build the others,” selectman David Weathers said, the town needs to know how building the southern section impact

Tourism booms in Hawaii
HONOLULU (NY Times) â€” One recent afternoon, as the temperature in their native Nashville dipped to a slim 7 degrees, Blythe Grant and Jordan Tlumak walked along the beach at Waikiki with beers in hand and smiles on their faces. Visitors walked down towards the beach at Hanauma Bay in Hawaii Kai. â€œWe just left three inches of snow in Nashville,â€? said Mr. Grant, 26 and buff. â€œI was pretty pumped to get on the plane.â€? Mr. Tlumak, his friend, nodded. â€œNashville just doesnâ€™t know how to handle that.â€? Mr. Grant and Mr. Tlumak are not the only mainlanders to be gloating about their good luck. Hawaiian tourism ofďŹ cials, hotel operators and travel agents â€” battered by several years of slumping sales â€” have recently seen a marked increase in arrivals to the islands. And while there are various theories as to why â€” including favorable currency exchange rates and Obama on the beach â€” what most people can agree on is that the rotten weather in the rest of the country, including a series of brutal snow storms in the Midwest and on the East Coast, has been good news in Hawaii. â€œWe talk to these people every day, and theyâ€™re miserable,â€? said Amy Terada, the vice president of marketing for Pleasant Holidays, a tour operator in Westlake Village, Calif. â€œTheyâ€™re saying, â€˜Just get me out of here.â€™ â€?
Hawaii is not a state of mind, but a state of grace.â€? â€”Paul Theroux

Fed forecasts faster growth Students in as economy gathers steam Iran clash WASHINGTON (NY Times) â€” The Federal Reserve revealed Wednesday that its policy makers had substantially upgraded their forecasts for how much the United States economy will grow this year, though they expect unemployment to remain painfully high for some time. Top Fed ofďŹ cials now expect
the output of goods and services to grow by 3.4 percent to 3.9 percent this year, up from the previous forecast, released in November, of 3 percent to 3.6 percent. But their grim outlook for the job market was largely unchanged: 8.8 percent to 9 percent unemployment this year, only one-tenth of a per-
centage point lower than in the November forecast. Growth expectations were lifted by an improvement in consumer spending in the fourth quarter, though Fed ofďŹ cials were uncertain how long that would last, according to minutes released on Wednesday of the Fedâ€™s policy meeting in late January.
Bahrain protests expand on third day MANAMA, Bahrain (NY Times) â€” Tens of thousands of demonstrators poured into Pearl Square here late into the night as Shiite opposition leaders issued assurances they were not being inďŹ‚uenced by Tehran and were not interested in transforming the monarchy into a religious theocracy like the Islamic Republic in Iran. The Internet was jammed to a crawl and cell phone service was intermittent, in an apparent government effort to deter the demonstrators who had laid claim to the square, the symbolic heart of the nation. But its efforts only seemed to energize the roaring crowds, which spilled out of the square, tied up roads for as far as the eye could see and united in a peaceful celebration of empowerment unparal-
leled for Bahrainâ€™s Shiites, who make up about 70 percent of the countryâ€™s 600,000 citizens. Bahrain appeared on the precipice of a fundamental shift in the status quo, as centuries of rule by an absolute monarch were challenged openly, deďŹ antly and peacefully by crowds unrivaled in this nationâ€™s contemporary history. For the ďŹ rst time in local memory, police withdrew from the city streets, allowing young protesters to direct trafďŹ c in a widening area around the city. Cars ďŹ led into the city from outlying areas late into the night ďŹ lled with people anxious to participate in the unfolding events. â€œThe people want the fall of the regime,â€? the crowds chanted on the darkened square, their words echoing off the towering buildings nearby.

TEHRAN, Iran (NY Times) â€” Two days after the largest antigovernment protest in Iran in more than a year, supporters and opponents of the authorities fought Wednesday in a battle for the memory of a slain protester, state media and an opposition Web site reported. The clashes erupted at Tehran University during the funeral of Saane Zhaleh, one of two students reported killed during protests on Monday. Images on the Web site of the state broadcaster IRIB showed a throng of people surrounding a cofďŹ n, wrapped in the green, white and red Iranian ďŹ‚ ag, as it was carried above the heads of the crowd. But the opposition Kaleme Web site said the universityâ€™s arts campus had been taken over by pro-government forces who beat and arrested anti-government students. The contest to claim Mr. Zhaleh as a martyr reďŹ‚ ected divisions that seemed to have emerged once more into the open following the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.

Police Athletic League team helps Manchester boxer win tournament BY JIM FENNELL THE UNION LEADER
The story of Joel Felix is far from complete. But if you like happy endings, you have to be rooting for the Manchester Memorial High student. The latest chapter is a good one. Felix, 18, won the novice heavyweight division at the Greater Lowell/Central New England Golden Gloves tournament last Tuesday at Lowell Memorial Auditorium in Massachusetts. He is the ﬁrst boxer from the Manchester Police Athletic League program to win the Golden Gloves. He had to pass on a chance to ﬁght in last weekend’s New England Golden Gloves because he re-injured his shoulder in Tuesday’s championship ﬁght. He was forced to switch to southpaw in that ﬁ ght and basically beat his opponent without the use of a hook. “It feels good to know I could keep pushing mysel f,” F elix said. “Some people didn’t think I could do it.” Felix, 18, is a kid who could have gone the wrong way. A native of St.
Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, he came to continental U.S. when he was 6 and moved to Manchester when he was 12. He was in trouble before he was 13. His is a story of the streets and the trouble that can be found there. It’s a story all too familiar to people such as Sgt. Brian O’Keefe, boxing coach Joe Francis, ofﬁcer Rich Ell and the other volunteers who put in time working with kids at the MPAL’s Michael Briggs Community Center on Beech Street. O’Keefe and Ell, the current MPAL coordinator, are police ofﬁcers; Francis is a former professional boxer. They all have worked with the young kids who come through the Briggs Center. Some kids come on their own; others come because they have to. Felix was among the latter group. He admits he was doing bad stuff, a self-described “straight-F” student at Hillside Middle School. He was also big for his age, an immature child in a man’s body. “He’d be the kid in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Francis said.
Felix was sent to O’Keefe by a social worker to join the boxing program. “Boxing was a great vehicle for him to do positive things in his life,” O’Keefe said. “Winning a championship is not as important as teaching life skills. We have to produce champions in life.” O’Keefe, the former MPAL coordinator, knows ﬁ rsthand what engaging kids in physical activity can do. He grew up in a boxing gym in Lowell. His father, Mickey O’Keefe, is a Lowell police sergeant who trained Micky Ward. Mickey O’Keefe plays himself in the movie “The Fighter,” which starred Mark Wahlberg and is based on Ward’s life. Brian O’Keefe has carried on the work of his father, taking in kids who walked the edge and giving them a chance with MPAL. Felix is just the latest feel-good story to come out of the Briggs Center. O’Keefe proudly points out that Michael “Kiki” Rivera-Fermaint just graduated U.S. Marine Corps boot camp and Gibran Ortiz-Perez is working full-time and going to college. To
him, that’s what MPAL is all about. Felix went to Francis last year and said he wanted to give the Golden Gloves a try. He won his only ﬁ ght a couple of years ago at the Silver Mittens, a similar competition for boxers up to the age of 15. “I told him he has to show he’s committed,” Francis said. Training runs in the middle of the night, grueling workouts seven days a week -- it’s not for everybody, but Felix stuck with it. “It was daunting. It was tiring,” Felix said. “Then ﬁ ght night came, and I felt great.” The novice division is open to ﬁghters with no more than 10 bouts. Francis said Felix looked seasoned, a big kid who moves gracefully and can follow a game plan. He won all three of his three-round ﬁ ghts by decision. “The kid is so natural, he just ﬂows,” Francis said. Felix said he never liked boxing when he was younger. Now, he’s dreaming big. He wants to box in the Olympics and turn pro.
Town halts blasting at outlet mall site BY KIMBERLY HOUGHTON THE UNION LEADER
MERRIMACK — Yet another blasting violation has occurred at Merrimack Premium Outlets, with town ofﬁcials saying there have been too many breaches in protocol at the construction site. Friday’s blast, described as the most serious infraction thus far, exceeded the maximum air blast permitted. It was the fourth violation reported at the site since work began several months ago. “In my opinion, they have made too many mistakes,” Town Manager Keith Hickey said of Maine Drilling and Blasting of Auburn. Hickey said it has become “painfully apparent” that the blasting company is using the highest limit of blasting strength permitted, and not leaving any leeway for error, resulting in blasts that exceed the requirement allowed under the town’s blasting ordinance and the blasting plan created with Merrimack Premium Outlets. A larger gap needs to be established so that blasts do not continue to exceed maximum levels, Hickey said. He said that Friday’s blast, around 3:45 p.m., was recorded at 135.5 decibels, when only 133.7 decibels are allowed. “I don’t know if that is normal or not, but four (violations) is too many.
We’ve taken a stronger stand at this point,” he said Tuesday. Several phone calls were made to town ofﬁcials regarding Friday’s blast, with neighbors complaining that windows vibrated and lighting ﬁ xtures swayed. As a result, Fire Chief Michael Currier did not issue a blasting permit to Maine Drilling and Blasting this week. On Monday, representatives from the company met with Hickey, along with a representative from Merrimack Premium Outlets and a town attorney. Merrimack Premium Outlets has now been asked to revise its blasting plan, which must be approved by the town’s blasting consultant before a future blasting permit is granted, according to Hickey. He predicts that the amended plan will be documented quickly, and said blasting could resume as early as this week if appropriate corrective measures are taken. “We’re hopeful that we can reach some middle ground,” Hickey said, adding about 40 percent of the ledge at the site has been removed. “There is still quite a bit of blasting that needs to occur.” Michele Rothstein, spokesperson for Premium Outlets, the outlet division of Simon Property Group, said Tuesday she is conﬁ dent this issue will be resolved promptly.

World class education is unacceptable To the editor: What does our budget committee do exactly? I would think that a budget committee labors over writing budgets, working out compromises and setting numbers? I am wrong, wrong, wrong. Nobody I know really knows exactly what they do, especially those who don’t subscribe to Valley Vision or who have not been involved on town committees. All I could ﬁ gure from the town website is that they exist. No bylaws are listed. And now it seems that the two leaders have resigned! This powerful committee has a total of four members and over 10 vacant seats? Is this even legal? Here is what the budget committee does: They either approve or reject the school board’s budget, among other budgets. They rejected it last week and then set the school budget themselves. They cut over $3,000,000 from a lean budget already labored over for months, and approved by the school board, the principals of the schools and hundreds of concerned voters who showed up at meetings. In the words of one sitting member: “An outstanding world class education is unacceptable.” Is that an explanation? In fact, they are not even required to offer an explanation. Can the budget committee cut a percentage off the proposed budget without proposing what will actually be cut? Yes — this is true. However, if they gave a dollar amount reduction, then they would be obligated to say exactly what should be cut. That would be harder,
right? And I would think that holding great power and authority, they would not opt away from the hard choices — they would give a world class effort to creating a ﬁ nancially and morally strong and appropriate budget. Wrong again. There are four people on the budget committee right now. These four wield tremendous power over you and me. Power that requires little effort on their part. Four people have the ability to alter a budget process worked on by hundreds, affecting thousands and costing millions. They do not have to explain why. They do not have to explain how. This is faulty government. Inﬂ uence without responsibility. This is not the way America works. This is why there was an original, real tea party in Boston harbor. “An outstanding world class education is unacceptable.” This is a direct quote from Ray Shakir, an elected member of our Conway Budget Committee. Ray was speaking about his expectations for the future of our local schools at a recent budget meeting. This concept is bankrupt both ﬁnancially and morally and should be rejected by Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike. The people on this committee are elected by us. It’s time to either change the system or change the elected representatives. We need to elect ofﬁcials who provide an outstanding effort, and envision and work hard for a bright future for our community. Brian Charles Conway

State Sen. Jeb Bradley
The N.H. Retirement System’s day of reckoning As we move beyond the November election several large problems must be dealt with immediately. These include: erosion of our business friendly climate; education funding; structural deﬁ cits and large spending increases; and dangerous unfunded liabilities in our public employee retirement plan. Recently, several senators and I unveiled legislation that stabilizes New Hampshire’s Retirement System (NHRS) which presently has a total unfunded liability in the pension and medical subsidy account of nearly $4.75 billion. We were joined by representatives of employer groups including select board members, school board members, and county ofﬁ cials who all are forced to pass sky rocketing retirement costs onto besieged property taxpayers. The NHRS should provide reasonable pensions for teachers, ﬁ re ﬁ ghters, police ofﬁ cers, and other public employees while not overburdening taxpayers. Experts believe that in order for a state’s retirement system to maintain actuarial stability, an 80 percent funding level is necessary. Ten years ago New Hampshire’s pension plan funding was a healthy 89.9 percent, but has nose dived steadily, bottoming out at 58.3 percent in 2009. According to the independent Pew Center Report “The Trillion $ Gap”, New Hampshire received the lowest of three rankings — “serious concerns.” The fact that 18 other states received the same grade is grim solace for New Hampshire’s property taxpayers who will foot the bill. This alarming trend will at some point impact NH’s bond rating according to the State Treasurer, potentially driving up the cost of borrowing. Noteworthy facts about the NHRS contained in their 2010 report: the unfunded liability of the system has grown from about $2.75 billion in 2007 to the previously mentioned $4.75 billion presently. Employer contributions — more appropriately termed property taxpayer contributions — to the system have climbed from about $70 million is 2000 to $302 million in 2010. Since 2009 employer / taxpayer contributions have grown by 15 percent from $261 million to $302 million. At the same time, employee contributions have increased over the last year — but by a signiﬁ cantly smaller amount (4.9 percent) from $142 million to $149 million. In the last year the beneﬁ ts paid out by the System have increased by 7.8 percent or $40 million from $510 million to $550 million. This increase according to the NHRS is “primarily due to an increase in the number of retirees, increased average beneﬁt levels for those new retirees, and temporary supplemental allowances granted to retirees through legislative action.” How did New Hampshire get into this predicament? In the early 1990’s during another difﬁcult recession, an actuarial accounting methodology was put into place to save employer costs. Its intent was temporary. Unfortunately this methodology remained in place until 2006 and when changed, the true picture of a $2.75 billion unfunded liability was revealed. During that period employers signiﬁ cantly underpaid retirement costs, though the rates were set by the NHRS and Legislative policy. The second reason for the predicament involves what is known as gain-sharing or the practice of paying higher beneﬁ ts when NHRS’s investment income exceeded targets. The problem with gain-sharing was that good investment years did not overcome other years of under-performing investment returns. Nevertheless, a total of $900 million was diverted
from the NHRS fund to pay higher beneﬁ ts until gain-sharing was curtailed in 2006. Huge investment losses when markets crashed also signiﬁ cantly contributed to the shortfall. In 2008, losses were 4.6 percent and in 2009 losses were 18.1 percent or a staggering $995 million. 2010 saw a much improved investment climate and gains for the NHRS were an impressive $568 million. Despite those solid gains, the total unfunded liability scarcely improved from 58.3 percent in 2009 to the current 58.5 percent. As bleak as this picture is —it gets worse. Recent stock market losses have yet to be fully factored into employer contributions and combined with expected beneﬁ t growth will drive property taxpayer costs to unimaginable levels — the very horn of a dilemma. This is why we must make changes to the System now. We have proposed a restructuring of beneﬁts — primarily for “non-vested” NHRS members with less than 10 years of service or future new hires. Included in the proposed reforms will be increased years of service for public safety workers — 20 to 25 — as well as increasing the retirement age from 45 to 50 for those same employees. Inclusion of unused sick time, vacation time, or end of career buyouts, all of which drive up retirement beneﬁ ts, will no longer be permitted in the calculation for anyone with less than 10 years of service. Special detail overtime will be curtailed immediately as it is simply not appropriate to include that kind of spiking in retirement calculations. Nobody will be able to retire and receive retirement beneﬁ ts greater than their ﬁnal salary. $90 million earmarked for higher beneﬁ ts will be transferred back into the primary retirement fund to reduce the unfunded liability. A 4 percent growth in medical subsidies will be eliminated. Any new NHRS members hired will have increased contribution rates: 5 percent to 7 percent for most employees and 9.3 percent to 11 percent for public safety employees. A study will determine if New Hampshire should move from the current deﬁ ned beneﬁ t system to the deﬁ ned contribution or 401k systems of the private sector. Lastly, the composition of the NHRS board which currently includes eight employee members and one employer member will be reformed to parity: four employee and four employer members. These reforms are reasonable and pending an actuarial review should dramatically improve the unfunded liability of the system. As noted, most reforms will not apply to employees who are “vested” with 10 or more years in the system nor will they impact current retirees. New Hampshire courts have held that once an employee is vested there is an expectation akin to a contract of receiving pension beneﬁts upon reaching retirement age. However, the NH Supreme Court has never ruled the same obligations apply to those employees who have less than 10 years of service and are not vested. Given the enormity of the funding shortfall and the pending impact on property taxpayers, it is certainly appropriate to ask beneﬁ ciaries with less than 10 years of service to share in the potential solution. Not doing so accelerates the Day of Reckoning for the NHRS and property taxpayers. Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) is a former Congressman former state representative and currently state senator for N.H. Senate District 3.

I strongly oppose bills to repeal marriage equality To the editor: It has come to my attention that on Feb. 17 the Judiciary Committee of the N.H. State Legislature is scheduled to hold a hearing on two bills which would seek to repeal the existing marriage equality law that went into effect in 2010 and would also repeal an earlier law allowing civil unions. These bills were introduced by Republican Representatives David Bates of Windham and Leo Pepino of Manchester. I strongly oppose these bills and urge my fellow readers to contact their representatives and voice their opposition as well. According to a UNH Survey Center poll of 520 NH adult respondents, it was
revealed that 62 percent were in favor of keeping gay marriage in place and 29 percent wanted it repealed. This issue is political as well as personal to me. My sister was married to her partner of 28 years in January 2010 under the new statute. It made us proud of our state to have taken this action and accorded all of our citizens the rights and privileges of a legal marriage. Are we now to demean these relationships and individuals? I think not. Let us stand on the side of love and let our elected ofﬁ cials know that New Hampshire values all of its citizens. Sandra L. Carr Madison
Do we truly know what an education is worth? To the editor: I have known Mr. Marvel for many years, in fact I have known him since we were students together at Kennett, many years ago. Knowing of Mr. Marvel’s success in writing, I do not pretend to be as erudite as he. However, much to my surprise, I noted a sentence fragment that seemed to misconstrue his meaning within his column. That fragment goes “...I did not ﬁ nd a single one with a higher ratio of teachers to students.” I am certain that he meant “lower,” as having a higher ratio means to have a greater disparity between the elements, in this instance teachers and students. Thus, according to the 2007 statistics provided, Hanover, to take a random school, had a teacher to student ratio of one teacher for every 15 students. Intrigued by the article, I decided to do my own research on the Education. com website. I could not ﬁnd any info on 2007 statistics; perhaps because I was not signed up. I prefer to follow Groucho Marx’s advice in that “I would never join any group that would have me.” I did, however, discover some interesting information. Did you know that Kennett High School did not make AYP in 2009 and 2010, nor did Plymouth Regional High School, yet Hanover High School did. I was unable to discover if Kennett is SINI, as the N.H. Department of Education does not have that info on their site. I did discover disaggregated NECAP scores on the N.H. site and discovered that NECAP was developed, in cooperation with Rhode Island and Vermont, to address concerns with “No Child Left Behind” legislation. NECAPGLEs have been developed to provide info as to where a child should be, educationally, in relationship to his/her grade. Now I hear on NPR that the new program for educational improvement is a “Race to the Top” where states and districts vie for what I assume are limited federal funds, with some states getting the money and some not. Yesterday, I was tutoring a 9-year-old in math and this child pointed out a “decimal point” in the Sun. When I checked, the ﬁ nger was pointed at a period. Big difference, but the confusion is understandable, given the child’s age. At least we adults aren’t confused. I have an interest in NECAP (New England Common Assessment Program), as the student I am tutoring is low in math. The only info of any value about the testing comes from Rhode Island (Google “NECAP” and click on Rhode Island) and that was somewhat circumspect. As an aside, I ﬁnd that the
pronunciation of the acronym NECAP very 30-ish gangster and almost “sinister,” as is the student I’m working with, though in the Latin deﬁnition. That student seems a bit confused, but bright, and I have no doubt that tutoring, oneto-one, will improve his scores on the next test. One-to-one is the ideal ratio for teacher to learners, but this is not a perfect world, nor is the idea affordable or realistic. I would suggest that parental involvement in the education of their most valuable asset is what will, in the end, make a difference. Not to let the schools off completely. Let me cite the following “statistics” from the Education.com site: Plymouth Regional High School, Hanover High School and Kennett High School ALL (my emphasis) had the same studentteacher ratio, 12:1, or, to put it another way, one teacher for every 12 students, not the eight-to-one ratio of 2007. Lets look at another “statistic.” On a scale of one to 10, Hanover scored nine, Plymouth scored eight and Kennett scored six. The percentage of children receiving federally-supported free or reduced meals is 26 percent for Plymouth, 16 percent for Kennett and 2 percent for Hanover. As for per pupil cost, The Pemi-Baker School District (PRHS) pays $15,080 per student, Dresden School District (Hanover) pays $18,085 per student and Conway School District (Kennett) pays $19,446.00 per student. Given the facts that I have provided above, it would seem that Plymouth is providing the best educationand the least cost, compared to Hanover and Kennett. But, are the statistics valid and are the interpetations of them reliable? Has enough data been provided? Are we comparing apples to oranges? Do we truly know what an education is worth? When I took computer programing at my alma mater, Plymouth State College, we had a term for how accurate the computer was. That statement, known by many, is “Garbage in, garbage out.” We used punch cards, and they became physical “garbage” once used and the information encoded on them had been transferred to tape. Mr. Marvel writes well and I have enjoyed reading many of his Civil War books, as I have read many books regarding the American Civil War. His point of view is one of many; his statistics must be taken at face value. We live in an imperfect world. Perhaps vitriol simply, to use a metaphor, “stirs the pot.” And don’t get me started on acronyms. Roger M. Clemons Bartlett

Cranmore Mountain Resort presents Mountain Meisters Week 7: Bartlett, MacDonald tops BY DANBO DOUCET
MOUNTAIN MESTERS COORDINATOR
CONWAY — We had a great turnout for yesterday’s seventh race of the Cranmore Mountain Meisters series sponsored by Joe Jones Ski and Sun Sports. Once again, we had close to 470 racers show up — yet we could not ﬁgure out where the rest of you were. The weather was cloudy most of the day but the sun did manage to show itself every once in awhile. The day’s stellar course was set by Ian Meserve and the rest of the Meister morning crew, who as usual showed up before 6:30 a.m. for what has become a weekly ritual for them. Did you have fun Tango-Sucka? Quickly to the results: For the men, Matt MacDonald did not race this
week, but we were glad to see Tim Simoneau back on the course. Unfortunately, Tim did not get the ﬁ rstplace spot — that was won by Skip Bartlett (24.57 seconds), with Jon MacDougal (24.70) and Tim Simoneau (24.79) following in second and third. The ladies once again had some suspense on the course, as everyone wondered is Peek-A-Boo Dolan could repeat and win three in a row. No such luck, though, as Kelli MacDonald took ﬁ rst with a 25.05 and then Peek-A-Boo (25.53) was second. Cindy Clancy edged out Kathy Fisher with a 26.38 for the third spot. Remember that for you racers on other equipment we are now featuring a results page just for you which can be found at the Meister data page on the www.cranmore.com/events
website. I do not have to remind you but I will please check you results here in the Conway Daily Sun or online and if you ﬁ nd an error you must protest via the link provided by COB next Monday. Speaking about next week, Feb. 23, we don’t race! It is ﬁ nally February Vacation time and we must relinquish our beautiful mountain to all the vacationers coming from all parts of the northeast! So we skip next week but racing will resume the following week (March 2) and we are going to TRY and do a Combined Format! What? Combined? Simply put you once again get to race on both courses, only once per, but your ofﬁcial time of the day will be your combined result from the yellow and the green course. We really think you will like this but one warning if you
do not ﬁ nish on both courses with a valid time then you get DQ’d. Now that’s real racing. We hope you like it but if the weather does not cooperate we will go back to our normal one run only format. In closing, we have been getting many comments and questions about the movement of racers and the points. We are trying our best to make this even fair but sometimes we can’t get those sandbaggers who make this whole system bend out of shape every once in awhile. Looking ahead, we have an InterMountain Challenge Race scheduled for here Wednesday, Feb. 23. You can ﬁnd all the particulars on the Cranmore Mountain website. Check it out and put yourself a team together and come for the fun and the racing! See you all again in two weeks.

Valley restaurants ride ups and downs of economy BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — Mount Washington Valley’s tourism-dependent restaurants and retail centers are bracing for a big February school vacation week, Feb. 21- 25. With lots of snow over the past several weeks, the ski slopes are in fine shape. Adding to the possible big week is the fact that for the first time in several years, most schools in Maine and New Hampshire will have the same February school week off as Massachusetts. “I am thinking February vacation week is going to be big,” said Beth Carta Dolan, coproprietor with her husband Kevin of Joseph’s Spaghetti Shed in Glen. Her outlook was shared by Dot Seybold, vice president of marketing for Settlers’ Green Outlet Village, and by Valley Originals president Dick Delaney of Delaney’s Hole-in-theWall of North Conway. “I don’t think it’s a first for all to be having the same week

off, but it is unusual. It should be a big week,” said Seybold this week. “I think with all the snow we have had,

as the valley has a lot to offer,” said Delaney. ••• Looking back at see RESTAURANTS 14

2010, and reflecting a comment voiced by other local restaurateurs, Delaney said many diners at his family-owned and operated restaurant still went out to dinner, but they downsized what they ordered. “Last year, we sold more burgers and sand-
wiches for dinner,” said Delaney, who noted that last year was his best ever in the 16 years since he founded the restaurant with wife Lanette and sister Mary Ellen. “It was my best year in 16 years, so I knew it was going to be tough to achieve those numsee next page

bers this year. But as a whole, speaking for Valley Originals, everyone is doing very well, especially since all this snow. It really has turned around” said Delaney. Still, like all local businesses, he and others have had to adapt to business conditions. Restaurants have had to make cutbacks in staff as one way to control their costs, Delaney said. “We personally have done more with fewer people. The rooms and meals tax went up, as did the minimum wage. We basically had to cut staffing to absorb those costs so we wound up controlling labor that way,” said Delaney, who said he and his wife and his sister have been putting in more hours at the popular restaurant. He said adapting is a pre-requisite for any business’s success. “Two or three years ago,” said Delaney, “we our food costs were as high as we have ever seen them. And now, they are going back up after last year, which was a good year, foodcost wise. But we are always adapting — our business is a commodities business, other than labor and liquor costs. It’s a constant battle that you need to stay on top of. One of the best things about being independent is that we can react quickly and keep our costs down to make sure that we stay around. As a group, that’s the kind of information we try and share with Valley Originals members: not how to run their business but to give them information to make decisions.” He and fellow Valley Originals member Terry O’Brien of the Red Parka Steakhouse and Pub note that their group of independent restaurants takes pride in giving back to the valley. “I’m not going to bash any of the chains, and I won’t,” said Delaney, “but a lot of that money doesn’t stay in the valley. We as a group support local charities and events
in return for people supporting us. It makes for a healthier way to run a business and a community.” O’Brien — whose late father, Dewey Mark, founded the Valley Originals in 1998 with Wally Campbell of the sinceburned Fandangle’s to give more buying power for local independent restaurants
— agreed that giving back to the community is a key value for Valley Originals members. The organization now has 24 locallybased member establishments. “We believe strongly in putting back money into the community where it belongs,” said O’Brien, a former New Hampshire Lodging
and Restaurant Association president and 2009 Mount Washington Valley Economic Council Bob Morrell Award recipient for civic entrepreneurship. The organization gives to Jen’s Friends, the local cancer-fighting organization, as its official cause. The Red Parka, meanwhile, hosts such

more the other day and I couldn’t believe the array of things going on there,” said O’Brien about the $6 million in improvements at the North Conway area, which opened a year-round Mountain Coaster just prior to the start of the ski season. She said by controlling labor and food costs and by expanding the menu to include more lowpriced offerings, the Red Parka has been able to keep its volume of business, despite the down economy of the past two years. While steak costs have skyrocketed (a top menu item of filet mignon now costs $24.95 at the Red Parka), the Glen eatery has adapted. “We definitely try to reduce our costs where we can — and we are putting items on the menu that are more cost efficient for us and a better value for our guests,” she said, explaining that the restaurant now offers a blue plate special, and a sandwich of the day. “We may not sell as many of the $24.95 filet mignons,” she said, “but we are making that up by selling more of lesser cost items which makes a good contribution to our bottom line. It’s kind of like the volume thing that McDonald’s has always worked on: If you sell two of the $24 items the return may be $10 for each one, but if you sell 20 of the $10 items and the return is $5 for each of those, you are ahead of the game.” She said people are spending less on dessert, but they are going out. “We are seeing people sharing a dessert,” said O’Brien, adding, “We might see people during a vacation week one night, where they spend for less expensive items on the menu — a sandwich and an appetizer. But we are seeing them return the same week and maybe then going for the higher end items, the steak and the prime rib.” The Red Parka also now offers steak at two sizes: a smaller size, and the 16-ounce size. “Our cost controlling is better, and our sales are up, so we are doing OK, we are hanging in there. We’re doing what we’re doing, and God bless our customers!” said O’Brien. see next page

Carta-Dolan of Joseph’s Spaghetti Shed said she first experimented with her menu two winters ago in response to the economy. “We used to be allinclusive,” she said, “but the price people saw was $14,95, not looking at what they were getting for that price: spaghetti, a salad, soup. So I said let’s make it a la carte. Now the price they see is for the smaller portion of $8.95; if they want the larger portion, they can do that, and if they want the soup or salad, they have to add to that.” And the result? “People are spending more than they used to. I leave it to them, they make the choice as to how much they would like with their meal. They have more control that way on what they are spending, and what I am finding,” said Carta-Dolan, “is they are spending more. The key is the up-sale: asking would you like a house Caesar salad, or our homemade soup? “I would say that since we started this,” said Carta-Dolan, “things are on the upswing. I am building the business back up again after the economy brought it down.” With the New England economy appearing to be doing better than the national economy, and with plenty of snow for the short-term, restaurateurs are hoping that translates into white gold for all of the tourism-dependent economy February vacation week and until the end of the ski season. As Ben Williams, owner of the Black Cap Grille of North Conway, has long said, “We all look like marketing geniuses when it snows.” After that, all hope the rebound will continue into the summer, long after the snow goes.
Can you hear me now? Data overwhelming cell networks BY KEVIN J. O’BRIEN NEW YORK TIMES
BARCELONA — At the Mobile World Congress, the industry’s largest annual gathering being held here this week, the corporate visionaries of the business agreed that a challenge they all would face was managing the avalanche of demand for mobile data services fueled by the growth in smartphones. And some of the 50,000 attendees at the event got a ﬁ rsthand taste of how daunting that challenge might be. Mobile service was at times spotty, and while reception was generally steady, calling volumes tended to be low and some people strained to hear their mobile conversations. Sometimes, calls simply did not go through. As the popularity of smartphones continues to grow, the challenge, on a global scale, may only get greater. The European network equipment makers Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent expect data trafﬁ c on the world’s mobile networks to increase 30 times through 2015. Huawei, a Chinese competitor, expects the trafﬁ c level to rise 500 times by 2020. The number of mobile broadband subscribers, which was 600 million at the end of 2010, is expected to almost double this year to a billion and climb to ﬁ ve billion in 2016. Mobile network capacity will need to increase 20 to 25
times to handle that growing load, said Hans Vestberg, the Ericsson chief executive. “In the future, we are going to live in a truly networked society,” Mr. Vestberg said. “This is going to have a tremendous inﬂuence on us and our lives.” In Barcelona, Ericsson announced an alliance with Akamai, a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, whose software and global network of 83,000 computer servers provides a deluxe, accelerated path through the Internet clutter for the Web trafﬁc of the world’s largest businesses, to integrate the company’s software into Ericsson network equipment. Once the gear is installed in phone networks, the general public should experience a faster mobile Web, said David Kenny, the president of Akamai. But that, he added, may take three to four years. Huawei, the world’s second-largest equipment maker, after Ericsson, introduced a new cellphone base station that transmits in all ﬁve commonly used frequency bands. Previously, operators had to use ﬁve times as much equipment. In 2009, Huawei was the ﬁ rst to sell a base station that could transmit calls in the three commonly used technical standards for cellphones: GSM, 3G, and Long Term Evolution, the latest technology. Its SingleRAN station, short

for Single Radio Access Network, has fueled the company’s rapid growth. But this year, Alcatel-Lucent, which has gone through a wrenching reorganization after the 2006 trans-Atlantic merger that created it, may have grabbed the spotlight. The company introduced a cellphone base station the size of a Rubik’s cube, weighing only 300 grams, or 10.6 ounces, that mimics the capability of a standard base station. A matrix of eight such cubes laid side by side, roughly the size of a small stereo speaker, can transmit more than two miles, or 3.2 kilometers. Jean-Pierre Lartigue, vice president for wireless marketing and strategy at Alcatel-Lucent, said the tiny base station consumed 50 percent less electricity than conventional base stations. Developed at Alcatel-Lucent’s Bell Labs, the cube is made of a plastic compound and contains 200 patented innovations. At the Alcatel-Lucent exhibition booth, which was adjacent to Huawei’s, engineers and operator executives were jostling to get a view of the cube, peppering Alcatel-Lucent representatives with questions about the technology. Three big operators, Verizon Wireless, the U.S. market leader; Orange, the mobile brand of France Télécom; and China Mobile have already entered into agreements
with Alcatel-Lucent to test the cubes. Ben Verwaayen, the Alcatel-Lucent chief executive whose emphasis on research and development helped bring the company back to proﬁt in the fourth quarter, said the pace of innovation would stay ahead of a wireless data crunch. Any reception problems at the industry event, which he said he had not experienced, were not caused by shortcomings in the technology, he added. “Living in a connected society has become a global political issue,” Mr. Verwaayen said, pointing to the recent uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, fueled in part by wireless networks and social networking technology. “We are coming to the point where society is seeing an actual need to stay connected.” At the Barcelona show, Claire Cranton, a spokeswoman for the GSM Association, the industry sponsor of the event, said that she had received no complaints regarding phone service. Matt Henkes, the editor in chief of AppsTech, a Web site based in Bristol, England, that is set to go live next month with coverage of the mobile applications industry, said he and his colleagues experienced weak calling volumes using their iPhones. “I think it is because there are so many smartphone users competing for a cell,” Mr. Henkes said. “This illustrates the potential problem the industry is facing.”

ECONOMIC TRENDS Report: Governments clearing way for small-business creation BY DAVID JOLLY NEW YORK TIMES
PARIS — Governments have responded to the ﬁ nancial crisis by making it easier for entrepreneurs to start new businesses, paving the way for employment growth amid an uncertain economic outlook, according to a World Bank report released late Wednesday. The study, Doing Business 2011, found that governments in 117 of the 183 economies it surveyed had carried out 216 regulatory overhauls “making it easier to start and operate a business, strengthening transparency and property rights and improving the efﬁciency of commercial dispute resolution and bankruptcy procedures.” “It’s been a strong year of reform around the world,” Neil Gregory, director of indicators and analysis at the World Bank and one of the authors of the report, said, adding: “Over all, we’re seeing a move toward making regulation more efﬁcient.” With public ﬁ nances under pressure, and the number of unemployed people reaching 212 million around the world last year — 34 million more than at the onset of the ﬁ nancial crisis in 2007 — the report said it was “vital” to unleash “the job creation potential of small private enterprises.” Singapore remains the world’s easi-
est place to start and run a company, followed by Hong Kong, New Zealand, Britain and the United States, but developing countries are working to catch up, the report found. Kazakhstan improved the most of any country on the list, rising to No.78 from the No.88 spot in 2009. The Central Asian country has set the minimum capital requirement for establishing a new business at about 70 cents and smoothed construction and trade regulations. Rwanda, Peru and Vietnam also improved markedly, as did the island republic of Cape Verde. Over ﬁve years, the greatest improvement has been in Rwanda, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Saudi Arabia and the former Soviet republic of Georgia, the report found. Amr bin Abdullah al-Dabbagh, governor of the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority, attributed his country’s rise in the rankings to “major reforms, including the elimination of the minimum capital requirement for starting a business, streamlining processes for starting a business and creating the foundations of a competitive internal credit market.” Saudi Arabia rose to No.11 in the latest rankings from No.67 in 2005, he said in a statement. Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asian countries continued to score the lowest in the study.

their roads. “The immediate impact is on the town of Conway.” Selectman Bob Drinkhall worried it will just move congestion from Conway village to the outlets. “I don’t see how there would be a difference if we just move the problem from one place to another,” he said. “If there’s a need then build the whole thing,” town engineer Paul DegliAngeli said, but don’t spend millions building a single section that funnels trafﬁc from one problem spot to another. The DOT’s 10 year plan outlines a proposal to build the southern section around Conway village between 2015 and 2019, but it doesn’t say anything about when the central and northern sections that would route trafﬁc around North Conway would get built. With the state’s current ﬁ scal crisis, many people are concerned there won’t be enough money to ﬁ nish once they get started. “Some people say if there’s that risk don’t build it,” Lyford said, but DOT commissioner George Campbell “feels we need the entire thing.” The best way to get the central and northern sections into the plan is to build the southern section, he said. But it’s Conway that will face the risks, Weathers said, if the other sections never materialize. The project is about more than just Conway, Lyford said. “Obviously Berlin and Gorham want to know if we only build the southern section what happens to them.” Berlin and Gorham see the project as key to redeveloping the economy. But while it would streamline one route to the North Country, not everyone in Conway is convinced it’ll make a difference. “What is the commercial necessity here?” town manager Earl Sires said. “What is the validity of the argument this is commercially and economically necessary?” The study won’t answer how many more vehicles will head north of the notches if all or part of the bypass is built, DOT trafﬁ c specialist Subramanian Sharma said, it examines how existing trafﬁc patterns will change. But the need in the North Country has changed, Weathers said. Trucks use Route 2 and Interstate 93 to get to Berlin, and the major industrial consumers are gone. “It’s a $400 million speculative investment,” Sires said later at the selectman’s meeting. “The bypass has become an economic development Hail Mary for the North Country.” “It’s going to be very interesting to see what the models show,” Weathers said.

Caretaker arrested for allegedly stealing from Northern Human Services client STOW, Maine — The Oxford County Sheriff’s Department arrested a woman yesterday in connection with a theft from a Northern Human Services client. The arrest was in concert with the Conway Police Department. Sheila Graves, 42, of Stow, is slated to be charged with theft by unauthorized taking of less than $1,000 in Conway once she has been extradited from Maine. According to a Conway police press release, a large amount of money went missing from a Northern Human Services client between October, 2009, and March, 2010, when Graves was employed as a caretaker. Graves will being charged with an enhanced penalty. She is accused of stealing from a victim over 65 or someone with physical or mental disability and taking advantage of age or disability. She could face two to ﬁve years in state prison.

years of experience instead of having their wages frozen when negotiators cannot agree to a new deal. Tuesday it was defeated 282-70 in a roll call vote. All four District I representatives — Chandler; Kren Umberger, R-Conway; Frank McCarthy, R-Conway; and Laurie Pettengill, R-Bartlett, voted to repeal the Evergreen bill. The N.H. Senate earlier this month voted along party lines 19-5 for the repeal. With the House now voting for repeal, the bill will end up on the desk of Lynch, who signed the Evergreen clause into law three years ago. Lynch has yet to take a position on the repeal bill. Chandler doubts that Lynch will veto the repeal because the House has enough votes to override any such veto. “It was a good vote, I’m pretty excited about it,” he said. “We could override the governor’s veto but I’m not sure he would veto it.” If the evergreen repeal is signed into law, only contracts with speciﬁ c evergreen language negotiated by unions and employers would continue to be subject to evergreen provisions. For all other contracts, whether they were signed while the evergreen law was in place or after it was repealed, public employees would not see automatic salary step increases once the contracts expire. One such contract that would expire would be a two-year contract between the Bartlett Teachers Association and the Bartlett School Distirct. The contract, now in the ﬁ nal year of a two-year agreement, falls under the
umbrella of the controversial Evergreen law. It provides that “this collective bargaining agreement, if approved, as the ﬁ rst agreement since July 15, 2008, will continue in effect as to its pay plan, excluding cost-of-living increases, until and unless replaced by a new agreement.” The law went into effect in New Hampshire three years ago. Rep. Chandler tried to repeal it two years ago, but was unsuccessful. Under the current Bartlett contract, at least 16 long-time teachers will be receiving $2,700 raises this year for the second consecutive year and stood to receive at least that much for the foreseeable future until a new contract is in place. A new teacher on the lowest step ladder would receive a $500 raise. With the repeal, the two negotiating sides would head back to the bargaining table and start negotiations on a new contract this fall. House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt , R-Salem, called the legislation a “key” piece to the House Republican agenda. “This law clearly shifted the balance of power to unions during contract negotiations,” he said. “This will help our municipalities in protecting their budgets from costs not within their control.” “We will continue to adhere to our Republican Agenda,” added Bettencourt. “The people of this state have given us a trust and today is just one example of how we intend to follow through with our promises. I urge Governor Lynch to do the right thing for our cities and towns and promptly sign this into law.”

County jail nurses suffer burnout BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
OSSIPEE — The nurses at the county’s department of corrections are getting burned out, the corrections superintendent reported to the legislative delegation recently. The delegation is a group of 14 state representatives who set the county’s budget figure. Superintendent Jason Johnson was approaching the delegation about increasing his nursing staff from three full time and one part time, to four full-time nurses. Two of the full-time nurses are registered nurses and the third is a licensed practical nurse (LPN). The part-time nurse is an RN. “The staff that I have are basically on burnout,” said Johnson. “They are working a lot of overtime to cover shifts.” Any time a nurse is out for vacation or sick time, Johnson has to pay overtime. Last year he spent $15,000 on medical staff overtime. But Rep. Joe Fleck (R-Wakefield) said overtime would more cost-effective because there wouldn’t be more benefits. A subcommittee member of the delegation proposed increasing the nursing staff to four but most of the Registered Nurses (RN) would be replaced with licensed practical nurses (LPN). That could be done through attrition. The subcommittee also suggested that nursing staff could be shared between the nursing home and the jail. “They need four nurses but they only need one RN,” said subcommittee member Frank McCarthy (R-Conway). RNs get about $25 per hour and LPNs get about $17.50. Switching to LPNs could save about $70,000 per year. The part-time nurse, who is an RN, has offered to work at the LPN rate, said delegation members. Attrition seemed too slow for Fleck. “At a minimum, can we say a change over (to LPNs) could be made within a year,” asked Fleck. “Why don’t put in place a plan that says within a year we have rotated all these people out and now we’re in LPN hiring mode?” Johnson replied, “What you are asking me to do, in essence, is to terminate somebody who has operational knowledge and bring in somebody who has no idea what’s going on in the institution.” To that, Fleck replied than perhaps the transition to LPNs could take place over multiple years.
Nursing home administrator Sandi McKenzie said initial assessments require oversight from an RN. Also RNs are able to handle IV treatments. The nursing home doesn’t have enough nursing staff to share with the department of corrections, she said. Rep. Norm Tregenza (R-Silver Lake) said corrections nurses who get laid off should get first right of refusal for any job that opens at the nursing home. “We are talking about people who have served the county honorably,” said Tregenza. Rep. Mark McConkey (R-Freedom) recalled that the county began hiring nurses because it was spending too much on sending prisoners out of the facility for medical care. Often times, prisoners were sent out for services when it wasn’t necessary. But now, said McConkey, the county’s workforce is growing and number of prisoner bed days is 20 percent lower than it was last year. “Do we really have enough work?” asked McConkey. “Do we get to the point where we have too much staff?” Johnson said the county still has to do a lot of transports at night when the nurse staff has left. Having the nurse go to full time would allow him to have nursing staff on duty 24 hours per day. Also, Johnson said he would eliminate overlap between nurse shifts. Currently, there is some overlap time between shifts three days per week because that’s the time where the nurses do paperwork Johnson added medical staff have to clear inmates who had force used on them — for example, inmates who have been put in the restraint chair. Delegation chair Betsey Patten (R-Moultonborough) asked if the number of prisoner transports has gone down over the years. She also wanted to make sure that labor laws don’t prohibit the county from paying RNs at the LPN rate. Rep. Christopher Ahlgren (R-Wolfeboro) suggested the department of corrections could make up a declining prisoner population by housing federal prisoners. But other Patten wondered if accepting federal prisoners would come with onerous red tape and liability. Johnson is also hoping the delegation will approve funding for three more corrections officer positions. His request is based on an independent analysis of the department, which questioned if the department had enough staff.

Memorial Hospital provides state-of-the-art care at cancer center CONWAY — Today, Gina Saladino, cancer survivor, returns to Memorial Hospital, not only to visit old friends but to share her story with those who still don’t know what Memorial has to offer. “So many people don’t realize what a great cancer center we have right here so close to home. People still think that you have to travel to Dartmouth or even to Boston.” “Our oncologists, Dr. Matthew Dugan, D.O., and Dr. Devon Evans, M.D., are phenomenal,” added nurse Nancy Barber of Memorial’s cancer infusion center. “They have so much experience and are well versed, but they’re also young and current on all the latest research. We’ve had several patients who, although they had oncologists in New York and Boston, worked in close collaboration with our oncologists and were able to receive their treatment here at Memorial.” Not only can patients receive chemotherapy treatments close to home but they can also have their PETCT scans (a PETCT scanner, usually found at big city hospitals, is a state of the art diagnostic tool that helps doctors detect and treat cancers at the earliest possible stage) and lab work done at Memorial. The cancer care medical team of pharmacists, surgeons, and primary care givers are all just a hallway away from each other. “It’s wonderful that everything you need is right here in the same building. And the coordination between departments is fabulous,” Saladino said. The oncology and infusion center at Memorial has more to offer than simply cancer treatments. “We provide infusions, injections, and transfusions for other hematological illnesses as well,” Barber said. “During the last 15 years, the department has greatly expanded to state-of-the-art status.” It was in early 1995 when Memorial ﬁ rst began treating oncology patients. “Dr. Tom Ervin used to see patients in Dr. Tilney’s ofﬁce,” remembers Roxanne Major. “I used to see patients in the emergency room on days designated for chemotherapy treatments. I had my one little cart that held patient charts. It’s still here,

although it no longer can hold all of the department’s patient records,” she laughs. Today, this team of nurses is responsible for 200 to 300 treatments a month. “We laugh a lot here,” Major said. “The set up is perfect — we have a private room for patients who need it and an open area where patients receiving treatment can visit with others, people they come to know throughout their journey and who become like family.” As you look around the oncology and infusion center it’s hard not to appreciate the special rela-
tionships evident among the patients but also between the patients and their caregivers. “All our artwork was given to us by patients”, from the wall hangings to the ornaments used to decorate the department’s Christmas tree each year. “We are proud to be with them throughout the whole journey— from diagnosis to hospice care when necessary.” It’s a very special relationship. Another way that this team provides support for patients and their families is through the “Journey of Hope” Cancer Support Group. “It’s a support group for individuals with all types of cancer,” Major said. “Both patients and their caregivers or support persons are welcome.” The Journey of Hope support group, launched in April of 2000, and still going strong, has provided hope to generations of cancer patients. “We meet on the ﬁ rst Tuesday of every month and average between 12 to 15 people. It has a huge impact in the care of the cancer patient. The strong support that happens within the group is generously given and graciously received.” “You really do become like a family,” Saladino says as she looks around at each of the women who saw her through the scariest and toughest time in her life. “It’s amazing how my nurses quickly felt like they had been my friends forever. Ellen, Nancy, Joanne and Roxanne are still there to offer advice or support and I look forward to my visits to see them every so often. They were always there to educate me on procedures, new medications, and how to deal with side effects. Their patience, comfort and knowledge always reassured me that I was receiving excellent care and support,” Saladino said. “Life is sometimes unpredictable, but even in a bad situation, it is good to focus on the gifts and generosity that surrounded us.” For more information on Cancer Care at Memorial Hospital, contact the Oncology Infusion Center at: 356-5461, extension 316.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Thursday, February 17, 2011— Page 25
Everyday Heart Health It’s February and that means its American Heart Month, so it’s time to talk about the heart. I’m not going to try to explain the complicated systems, types of disease or delve into the medical statistics. I’m going to give you one simple fact: If you don’t take care of your heart, it will stop working properly. That’s just a simple fact. Taking care of your heart on a daily basis means eating right and getting exercise. I know you’ve heard that before and it’s tedious and annoying to those of us who may not always be on the “health nut” train, but it’s the truth. Don’t worry though; you don’t have to jump into major life changes or set lofty goals to make a positive difference in your heart health. There are lots of simple things we can change and do to help your ticker keep on ticking. Here’s a list of ten tips easily incorporated into daily life: 1. Walk more. This doesn’t mean you have to buy special sneakers or gear up for a marathon. It means park further from the store, walk from store to store (You know you’ve done it-taken the car to get from Hannaford’s over to JC Penney.), take an extra lap around WalMart or just take a stroll up and down your street. Incorporate more walking into your everyday life. You can increase how much or how vigorously you walk based on how you feel and what your healthcare provider advises. 2. Put down the chips. Do a purge on your refrigerator and cabinets. Get the junk food out of the house. Instead of buying a bag of greasy cheese doodles, pick up a package of baby carrots. Be conscious of what you and others bring into your home. Make it a junk free zone. 3. Take a peek over at Fido. Is he looking like a chubby puppy? It’s not a reﬂection on the dog. It’s a reﬂ ection on you. He needs a walk just as much as you do. Not only do you get heart healthy exercise, but Fido will live longer and be a better behaved dog. You can also volunteer to walk dogs at local animal shelters. Dogs are great motivators when it comes to walking their humans. 4. If you’re a television junkie, turn off the set for at least an hour a day. Do something that requires you to use your body in some way. Housework can be heart healthy especially when you do it at a little faster pace. Maybe even do some dancing while nobody’s looking. Don’t forget sex! Not only will you enhance your relationship, but you’ll be getting that heart pumping and relieving stress!
5. If you’re not in condition to, or are medically prohibited Suze Hargraves from, engaging in a walking program, you need to check out The Gibson Center. They offer chair exercise classes. Visit them online at gibsoncenter.org or call 356-3231 for information. 6. Commit to eating a piece of fruit every day. Yes, you’re supposed to eat more than that but if you haven’t been eating right for years, adding one piece of fruit daily is a great way to change your habits. It’s also a way to reprogram your body to crave an orange instead of a cookie. 7. Use your computer, iPhone, Blackberry or other electronic gizmo to help you stay healthy. There are thousands of free applications available to help you track your diet, weight, daily activity and more. Check out the websites for American Heart Association (www. americanheart.org) and American Diabetes Association (www.diabetes.org) for tons of free stuff to help you on your way to a healthier heart. 8. Keep your meals heart healthy by minimizing fats and maximizing whole grains. There’s a lot more you can do, but those are two easy changes to incorporate diet changes that will make a big difference. More hearth healthy diet information is available at www.americanheart.org. 9. Relaxation and stress reduction lead to a healthier heart. Try activities like yoga, meditation or tia chi. If these activities aren’t your style try deep breathing or listening to soothing music. Engage in a healthy pastime, craft or hobby that helps you unwind. 10. Know your risks for heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions that can adversely affect your heart health. When you know your risks you can start managing them. See your healthcare provider or for $20 you can get a Healthy Heart Screen at White Mountain Community Health Center. We will give you the results to give to your medical provider. Call us at 447-8900 ext. 1 for more information. It’s never too late however to start treating your heart with the respect it demands to keep working the way it should. Show yourself some love. Give yourself the gift of a commitment to a healthy heart. Suze Hargraves is a staff member of White Mountain Community Health Center and a freelance writer.

Your nutrition and ﬁtness questions answered: Sea Salt; Zinc and Colds; Added Fiber; and Weight Lifting and the Heart Is Sea Salt Better for you than Regular Salt? What about Kosher Salt? “Not necessarily,” says Molly Kimball, R.D., of Elmwood Fitness Center in New Orleans. “All types of salt -whether regular table salt, sea salt or kosher salt -- are primarily sodium chloride.” The biggest differences are where the salt is mined from and the size of the salt granule. “Table salt comes from underground salt deposits; sea salt is (obviously) harvested from the sea, retaining some of the minerals of the seawater; and kosher salt can be from either type of source,” she adds. The beneﬁ t of using sea salt or kosher salt is that you will probably use less of it than table salt -- and that means less sodium. “The reason for this is that sea salt and kosher salt have bigger grains than table salt, so teaspoon-for-teaspoon they both will have less sodium,” says New York City nutritionist Jessica Fishman Levinson, M.S., R.D. Also, “The larger granule stays on the tongue longer, taking more time to dissolve, and so it has a bolder impact.” In addition, “Sea salt and kosher salt are usually added at the end of cooking, so the ﬂ avor is more apparent, meaning people add less salt to a
dish,” says Levinson. Research suggests that too much sodium can lead to high blood pressure. Recent U.S. dietary guidelines suggest that we should consume no more than 2,300 milligrams a day, while the Institute of Medicine recommends as little as 1,500 (the equivalent of 2/3 teaspoon of table salt!).”Currently, Americans, on average, are consuming more than twice that amount,” says Joan Salge Blake, M.S., R.D., a professor at Boston University. What is Inulin -- Is it the Same as Natural Fiber? Traditionally, food labels have divided ﬁ ber content into soluble and insoluble, but according to the Institute of Medicine, it should be classiﬁed as either dietary ﬁ ber or functional ﬁber. “Dietary ﬁber consists of nondigestible carbohydrates that are naturally found in plant foods, such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Functional ﬁ ber consists of isolated nondigestible carbohydrates, including those that are not natural but commercially produced. Inulin does naturally occur in some plant foods; however, when it is found in processed foods, it is of the form isolated
from chicory root, and, therefore, it is not the same as natural dietary ﬁber,” says Levinson. And according to the scientiﬁ c journal Nutrition Review, “Inulin and polydextrose show many of the same functionalities of grain ﬁ ber in the large intestine, in that they are fermentable, biﬁ dogenic and laxative.” However, “The reported effects on postprandial [occurring after a meal] blood glucose and fasting cholesterol levels have been modest...” meaning that inulin may help you go to the bathroom in the same way natural ﬁber does, but it’s not going to have the same effects on slowing down stomach emptying (making you feel full longer) or helping to lower cholesterol. Isolated, commercially produced ﬁbers “are nothing like the grainy, bran- and germ-covered whole grains that we envision with products like brown rice, whole wheat, oats, etc. Instead, inulin is a ﬁ ne white powder, about the same consistency as Sweet’N Low -- certainly not providing that belly-ﬁ lling ﬁ ber that we expect from a bowl of bran ﬂ akes or oatmeal,” says Kimball. “Food makers can add these isolated ﬁ bers without signiﬁ cantly altering the taste or texture of the product, yet it jacks up the ﬁ ber count on the nutrition facts label. The result: a cookie or candy bar that’s now a ‘ﬁ ber cookie’ or a ‘ﬁ ber bar.’ Fiber One bars? The ﬁrst ingredient is chicory root, indicating that there’s more chicory root than anything else in the product. The problem is that these ‘pseudo ﬁ bers’ give even nutritionally aware consumers the green light to reach for foods they otherwise wouldn’t typically consume. If they’re reaching for a Snickers or an Oreo, at least they know what they’re getting into,” says Kimball. Does Zinc Really Reduce the Common Cold? According the prestigious scientiﬁ c journal The Cochrane Library, yes: “Zinc supplements reduce the severity and duration of illness caused by the common cold.” The current Cochrane Systematic Review looked at data from 15 trials
involving 1,360 people. According to the results, “Zinc syrup, lozenges or tablets taken within a day of the onset of cold symptoms reduce the severity and length of illness. At seven days, more of the patients who took zinc had cleared their symptoms compared to those who took placebos. Children who took zinc syrup or lozenges for ﬁve months or longer caught fewer colds and took less time off school. Zinc also reduced antibiotic use in children, which is important because overuse has implications for antibiotic resistance.” Does the Order in which You Do Your Weight Training Matter? Yes, according to researchers at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, who looked at strength and muscle volume after 12 weeks of resistance training. Many ﬁ tness trainers suggest training large body parts ﬁrst; however, the researchers found that “if an exercise is important for the training goals of a program, then it should be placed at the beginning of the training session, regardless of whether or not it is a large-musclegroup exercise or a small-musclegroup exercise.” Does Weight Lifting also have a Cardiovascular Effect? Dr. Scott Collier, an exercise scientist at Appalachian State University, researched changes occurring to arteries and blood ﬂow “after 45 minutes of moderate intensity resistance exercise.” He found that resistance exercise, such as weight lifting, increases blood ﬂ ow, which reduces blood pressure. The results “continued about 30 minutes after the exercise had ended and as long as 24 hours in individuals who trained for 30-45 minutes three times a week.” The ﬁ ndings demonstrate that aerobic exercise isn’t the only way a person can improve cardiovascular health.

‘Come Undone’ Feb. 17 at independent ﬁlm night The Conway Public Library now offers an independent ﬁ lm screening on the 3rd Thursday of each month. February’s ﬁ lm is “Come Undone” by Italian director Silvio Saldino. There is no rating on the ﬁ lm but it is suggested for mature audiences, as the story involves adult situations and relationships. Anna has everything she thought she could ever need - a respectable career, a caring family, and a loving partner, Alessio. But when she meets Domenico, a handsome, married waiter, her neatly ordered world begins to fall apart. They quickly fall into a heated affair, based on secret meetings, stolen caresses, cell phone ﬁghts, and endless lies. Anna’s increasingly distant behavior goes unnoticed by Alessio, while Domenico’s wife becomes steadily more suspicious of her husband. As the two lovers begin to fall deeper under the spell of passion, they are faced with a life-changing decision. The ﬁ lm is free and popcorn will be served as well. Enjoy independent ﬁlm nights the third Thursday of each month at the Conway Public Library in the newly renovated Ham Community Room. Young adult chocolate party Also, coming up on Thursday, Feb. 17, at 3:30 p.m. the library’s young adult group celebrates Valentine’s Day with a chocolate party.

‘Fantasticks’ opens at Eastman Performing Arts Center Feb. 18 The Fryeburg Public Library’s Valentine’s Day party was so much fun thanks to the efforts of Debbie and Danielle Tait.

found at the Molly Ockett Middle School ofﬁce or by contacting the Booster Club at raidersboosterclub@ yahoo.com. There will be three brackets: middle school, high school and adult. Prizes will be awarded for top teams in each of the three brackets. All proceeds will beneﬁ t the MSAD 72 co-curricular programs for grades six through 12. Once again this year, I will be walking in the MS Walkathon in Newburyport, Mass. to raise money for the MS Society in memory of my sister Carla and to help people like my niece Melissa who is suffering with progressive MS at only 32 years old. Last year all of my sons and their girlfriends as well as my mom, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends walked the ﬁ ve-miles to help raise money for research. Imagine not having any feeling from your neck down, feeling like you are walking on pillows, everything you touch, including your eight year-old son, feels creepy, and you are losing your sight. That is what MS is doing to Melissa and thousands of other suffering with the disease. I am hoping to encourage people in the community to sponsor me this year. Last year, with your help, I raised $800. This year my goal is $1,000. Checks may be made payable to the National MS Society and mailed to me at 8 Denmark Road, Fryeburg or you can donate online by going to nationalmssociety.org and following the donation links. Our team, Carla’s Angels, is passionate about this cause and we can hardly wait to join hundreds of others to walk for MS on April 9. “MS-It’s only two words, not a sentence!” As always have a great week and keep me posted at firstname.lastname@example.org.

By Holiday Mathis it’s even more important that it’s the right job to do. Open the communication channels with your boss, customers and colleagues, and make sure you are all on the same page. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It is helpful in some situations to bluff. You will recognize when it suits you to appear more conﬁ dent than you really are and when it beneﬁ ts you to tone down your game. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). The person who must talk endlessly about his accomplishments and worth is trying to compensate for how he really feels about himself. Your compassion is required there, though you may ﬁnd it difﬁcult to give. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be inclined toward actions that will only bring you success if you do them often. Build repetition into your life to a greater degree. It’s not what you do on a whim but what you do consistently that matters. PISCES (Feb. 19 -March 20). You notice how people appear, and you also notice how they try to appear. Your observations lead you to understand how people feel inside, and you will speak to their private needs and wants. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 17). This year sparks your love life. You will ﬁ nd a partner extremely attractive, and you’ll have many wonderful times together. You’ll make money with your mind in March. There’s a big bonus in June. You’ll see new parts of the world and make friends there in May and August. Business booms in September. Cancer and Leo people have a special fondness for you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 21, 23, 6 and 30.
HOROSCOPE 0 ARIES (March 21-April 19 ). You’ll be busy with the kind of job you do exceptionally well. You seem to accomplish results with hardly any effort at all, while others exert themselves and get results that are dim in comparison. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It might help to learn how people just like you learn how to use a certain kind of software or work a new machine. Each individual has peculiarities. Be patient, and understand that trial and error is a natural process. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Making assumptions got you into trouble in the past. You will be careful not to take a stance until all of the facts are in. What you know, you know for sure. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your ability to read people will save you time and energy. Beware: If someone has to tell you how good they are at something, it usually means they’re not so good at it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will look into mixing with a new social group. Take it slow. Observe from afar before you decide to fully join this circle. Do the members of this group treat one another with kindness and respect? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just because you’re grown up doesn’t mean you have to lose your sense of magic. You’ll revert to a belief system of your childhood. Some of this still works for you, so why change it? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are both diplomatic and tolerant. You wouldn’t dream of imposing your will on a group of people who do things differently than you do. That’s why your contribution and leadership are so necessary to your team. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s important that you do a job right, but

Today is Thursday, Feb. 17, the 48th day of 2011. There are 317 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 17, 1801, the U.S. House of Representatives broke an electoral tie between Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr, electing Jefferson president; Burr became vice president. On this date: In 1809, the Ohio legislature voted to establish Miami University in present-day Oxford. (The school opened in 1824.) In 1864, during the Civil War, the Union ship USS Housatonic was rammed and sunk in Charleston Harbor, S.C., by the Confederate hand-cranked submarine HL Hunley, which also sank. In 1865, Columbia, S.C., burned as the Confederates evacuated and Union forces moved in. (It’s not clear which side set the blaze.) In 1904, the original two-act version of Giacomo Puccini’s opera “Madama Butterfly” was poorly received at its premiere at La Scala in Milan, Italy. In 1947, the Voice of America began broadcasting to the Soviet Union. In 1959, the United States launched Vanguard 2, a satellite which carried meteorological equipment on board. In 1964, the Supreme Court, in Wesberry v. Sanders, ruled that congressional districts within each state had to be roughly equal in population. In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon departed on his historic trip to China. In 1986, Johnson & Johnson announced it would no longer sell over-the-counter medications in capsule form, following the death of a woman who had taken a cyanide-laced Tylenol capsule. One year ago: President Barack Obama marked the one-year anniversary of the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, saying it had staved off another Great Depression and kept up to 2 million people on the job. Today’s Birthdays: Bandleader Orrin Tucker is 100. Actor Hal Holbrook is 86. Mystery writer Ruth Rendell is 81. Singer Bobby Lewis is 78. Comedian Dame Edna is 77. Country singer-songwriter Johnny Bush is 76. Actress Christina Pickles is 76. Actress Mary Ann Mobley is 72. Actress Brenda Fricker is 66. Actress Rene Russo is 57. Actor Richard Karn is 55. Actor Lou Diamond Phillips is 49. Basketball Hall of Famer Michael Jordan is 48. Actor-comedian Larry, the Cable Guy is 48. Olympic gold medal skier Tommy Moe is 41. Actress Denise Richards is 40. Rock singer-musician Billie Joe Armstrong is 39. Actor Jerry O’Connell is 37. Country singer Bryan White is 37. Actress Kelly Carlson is 35. Actor Ashton Holmes is 33. Actor Jason Ritter is 31. TV personality Paris Hilton is 30.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren
FAMILY CELEBRATIONS LEAVE HURT FEELINGS IN THEIR WAKE
DEAR ABBY: My family was invited to my cousin “Kirk’s” wedding -- a small affair for family and close friends only. My brother “Ryan” and his wife, “Dawn,” decided to schedule their daughter’s ﬁ rst birthday party on the same day and not attend the wedding. The birthday party was at 4; the wedding at 6. The locations were an hour apart. We attended the birthday celebration and left early to get to the wedding on time, as did Mom and Dad. As a gift, we chipped in to get Kirk and his bride, “Kallie,” an upgrade on their cruise cabin. They loved it. Ryan and Dawn contributed as well. The bridal couple asked that, since Ryan and Dawn didn’t attend, I thank them -- although they planned to send written formal thank-yous after their honeymoon. I called Ryan the next day to tell him Kirk and Kallie were appreciative, the wedding and reception were beautiful, and they were missed. Six weeks have passed and my brother and sister-in-law refuse to speak to me. I learned they felt the phone call I placed after the wedding was “inappropriate.” I was “throwing the wedding in their faces” and “had no right” to leave the birthday party. I apologized, but they still won’t talk to me, though they’re speaking to our parents. Ryan and I were inseparable as kids, but now what? -- HURT SIBLING IN MICHIGAN DEAR HURT SIBLING: Unless there is more to the estrangement than what you have written, the problem could be that your brother has displaced his anger at your parents for not staying at the birthday party and directed it solely at you because it’s “safer.” Is it wrong? Yes. Childish? Yes. Can you do anything more than you already have to ﬁ x it? Probably not. Your parents might take a moment to remind Ryan that
they also left to attend the wedding, and that it would have been better to schedule the festivities earlier so that everyone could have stayed longer. But if Ryan and Dawn choose to hold a grudge, nothing you can do will change that until they’re ready to let it go. DEAR ABBY: My sister “Mimi” died two years ago. Throughout her 40-year marriage she and her husband lived away from family and barely kept in touch, although we were close while growing up. Since her death, my husband and I have tried to keep in touch with her husband, “Clint.” The problem is, when I call him, all he talks about is the past, when we were all in school. That’s OK, but it invariably has some kind of sexual overtone -- about what I wore or did as a teen. I have tried redirecting the conversation to Mimi -- anything -- to no avail. Now I’m wondering if my sister kept Clint away from the family for a reason. He was always like this to a degree, but it was under more control when she was alive. What do I do when the conversation heads in this direction? I don’t want to lose contact with him and their children. -- UNCOMFORTABLE IN NEW MEXICO DEAR UNCOMFORTABLE: The next time it happens, tell Clint in plain English that he’s making you uncomfortable and tell him to quit dwelling on the past because it’s boring. If that doesn’t discourage him, call him only with your husband on another extension. And as to staying in contact with your sister’s children -- if their parents were married for 40 years, they are adults now. Contact them directly and let them know you care about them and want them to be a part of your lives because you are all family.

Kennett girls return to their winning ways in hoop BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Kennett High girls basketball team showed no ill-effects from its ﬁ rst loss in a year Friday at Portsmouth. The Eagles rebounded in ﬁne-fashion, picking up a pair of quality victories at The Nest on Monday and Tuesday. The girls marked the unveiling of the 1,000 point banner in style Monday at Kingswood’s expense. The Eagles, who trailed to the Knights at halftime in Wolfeboro on Opening Night, jumped out to a 13-point ﬁ rst quarter lead and never looked back, cruising to a 71-46 victory. Tuesday, KHS hosted Oyster River (10-4) and current N.H. Player of the Year Danielle Walczak, who beat Portsmouth the night before. The Eagles swarmed on Walczak, who has accepted a full scholarship to the University of Maine, every time she touched the ball, holding her to just 13 points (she netted 30 against Portsmouth), in the 51-43 win. The victories lift Kennett to 14-1 on the season in Division II and 17-1 overall. The Eagles are third in the 25-team standings trailing only Souhegan and Lebanon, who are both 13-0. Kennett’s lone loss came Friday in Portsmouth to the Clippers (11-4), 69-68. KHS was without the services of All State point guard Allie Wagner, who suffered a twisted ankle three nights earlier. Although still not yet 100 percent, Wagner returned to the lineup to face the arch-rival Knights of Kingswood (4-11). Kennett jumped out to an 8-2 lead and went on an 11-0 run (a Wagner three-pointer; a Melissa Frase three-pointer; a Lauren Kidder layup; a Frase layup; and a three-point play from Sam Meader with a layup followed by a free throw), to extend the lead to 19-4. In front 19-6 after the ﬁ rst eight minutes, the Eagles rattled off the ﬁ rst 10 points of the second quarter (a rare four-point play by Allie Wagner, who drained a three-pointer and was fouled on the shot; a Wagner layup; and two free throws apiece by Frase and Kaitlin Taylor) to lift the lead to 29-6. Kennett went on to lead 38-13 at the half. “We’d had trouble with them down there so we wanted to take the mystery out of them right away,” Peter Ames, Eagles’ head coach, said. “That’s why we came out pressing, trying to create turnovers.” Kennett carried a 62-34 lead into the fourth quar-

They tend top play low scoring games.” Allie Wagner drilled a trey to open the second quarter and White followed with a jumper to extend the led to 15-6. Kennett never trailed again. The lead grew to as many as 14 points, 22-8 when Allie Wagner scored on a runner in the lane. Oyster River ﬁ nished the ﬁ rst half on a 7-0 run to trail 25-20 at the intermission.

Spring lacrosse registration starts
Four Fryeburg wrestlers place at States BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
“I am real happy with the guys. Going to be sad to see the seniors go, but I can’t wait for next year for the rest of them to come back and get back to work.”
FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy wrestling team finished its successful tour this year with a fourth place finish at the State Meet in Augusta on Saturday. Mt. Valley, the favorite entering the tournament, won the meet with 168.5 points. Camden Hills and Belfast, powerful programs from Eastern Maine, finished second and third with 141 and 105 points, respectively. The Raiders gathered 94 points with five wrestlers placing. Stefan Emery defended his state championship from last year in the 152 pound class with a close 5-4 decision over Ryan Grover, from Sumner. Coach Bryce Thurston talked about Emery’s win: “Stefan wrestled a long lanky guy who had a lot of leverage. He was a defensive wrestler. Stefan won when he shot him and took him down. He also had a couple of good escapes. It came down to whoever got the take down and Stefan got it. He wore his guys down all day.” Connor Sheehan demonstrated his dominance in the 103 class throughout the day. He was never challenged and he won with a 16-0 technical fall over Belfast’s Evan Drinkwater in the finals. Coach Thurston has touted Sheehan all year, stating that he is both stronger and more technically advanced than anyone in his division.
He was proud to see Sheehan cruise to the state championship. “He dominated pretty much all his guys,” he said. “All those things that you want in a wrestler, he’s got it. I look for a lot of good things for him at the New England tournament.” Jake Thurston took a second place in the 130-weight class. Tom Cassidy of Camden Hills, warded Thurston off, 5-1, with a defensive style that succeeded on this day. Thurston, who likes to force the action, could not finish on this day. According to Coach Thurston, the outcome might have been different. “Cassidy wouldn’t do anything offensively. Jake shot three or four times, but Cassidy kept getting himself out of bounds. He also took Jake down once and got a couple of escapes.” Peter Bacchiocchi fell to Josh Thornton, from Mountain Valley, 7-4 in the 145 class. Thornton was the defending state champion, and he wrestled like a state champion. Thurston appreciated Bacchiocchi’s efforts against Thornton.
“Peter tried to get in on him, but he was a good defensive wrestler. He got Pete on a take down once, had a couple of escapes, and I think a near fall. It was a good match.” At 112, Matt Frost placed third when he scored a 16-5 major decision over Jason Chase, of Caribou. Frost beat some strong opponents to get to the consolation finals. . “He beat the second seed form the east and then wrestled the defending champion and lost. Then he wrestled back through the consolations. He wrestled real well. He had a couple real nice double leg takedowns on the day.” Other wrestlers who qualified but did not place were CJ Bartlett, Kirk Hubbard, Nate Hill, Ian McFawn and Brady Buzzell. Bartlett and Hubbard, as No. 4 seeds in the west, had to wrestle the No. 1 seed from the east, and both almost pulled off major upsets. Nate Hill knocked off an opponent that he hadn’t beaten all year. McFawn, wrestling at 189 despite weighing in at 171, fought hard. Buzzell, just a frosh, gained some valuable experience. Thurston noted their strong performances, “They all came here to wrestler. They fought hard.” Overall, Thurston was pleased with the team’s performance, “I am real happy with the guys. Going to be sad to see the seniors go, but I can’t wait for next year for the rest of them to come back and get back to work.”
The MWV lacrosse club’s youth program has expanded in the past year to include not only a regular spring season play, put also two off-season opportunities. Thirty-six players took part in the club’s “Fall Ball” program that ran September through October. MWV lax currently is running a “Winter Ball” program Saturday evenings in Cranmore fitness center. There has been an exceptional interest in this pre-season warm-up play with 60 players enrolled, including a very strong showing from Kennett Eagles players. Now, the regular spring season is rapidly approaching. The spring season includes statewide competition through the New Hampshire Youth Lacrosse Association. Once again the club will field U9, U11, U13 and U15 teams. After having a great season last year, the club is expecting some very exciting and fast paced games this year. Successes last spring led to the MWV teams being advanced to higher divisions for this coming season. Registration for the spring season is now open for returning and new players. Interested players and families should visit the clubs website at www. mwvlax.com. Registration is through the website. Ages include older 1st grade (born on or before Dec. 3, 2003) through eighth grade.

Eastman is conference champ BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — Apparently, the Eastman clan likes to keep the Nordic ski championships in the family. This past week, both Silas and Seth took a Western Maine Conference ski championship. Last winter if you saw the name S. Eastman at the top of a Maine high school Nordic race, it was veteran Fryeburg Academy racer Seth Eastman. That changed this season when Silas Eastman, the talented younger brother of Seth, found his rhythm and started the season winning four of the ﬁrst six races and ﬁ nishing second in the other two. However, the results reverted back this past Wednesday when older brother Seth reminded everyone that he was the original elite level skier in his household. Seth beat Silas and 125 other Western Maine Conference skiers to claim his ﬁ rst conference championship title in a 5.7k skate race held at Libby Hill in Gray. Silas, though he did not win the race, outdistanced everyone but his brother for a second place ﬁ nish. Teammates Paul Kurnick (11th) and Adam Armington (41st) combined with the Eastmans to score a third place ﬁ nish behind Yarmouth and NYA. Weston felt positively about Seth’s victory. “It was nice to see Seth win the race. He has worked hard all season and deserved it. Though he is proud
of his younger brother, he is still out to beat him head to head. They raise each others’ level and abilities.” In the girls’ race, senior Aslyn Dindorf was the top FA girl ﬁnishing 13th. Hannah Plowden was 30th. On Saturday, 11 Western Maine Conference teams traveled to Stark’s Hill in Fryeburg for the classic race. The talk going into the race was all about the course, which included the most challenging trail at Stark’s and the steep uphill known as “The Wall.” This is probably the most difﬁ cult course these racers will ski in high school and it beneﬁ ts the true endurance athlete and that would be Silas Eastman’s specialty. Silas, the reigning state champion in cross country running, made the course look easy as he won the race, besting the ﬁ eld by almost 30 seconds. Brother Seth ﬁnished fourth. Teammates Armington (28th) and ﬁ rst year skier Logan Gerchman (31st) completed the scoring for the boys putting them in 3rd place again. The team was without Kurnick for this race due to a fall two days before. Weston was impressed with Gerchman’s efforts. “He really stepped up and had a big race in his ﬁ rst year on skis.” Aslyn Dindorf had another great race ﬁ nishing 12th for the girls. In a sister – sister combination, Amber Dindorf was 53rd. Emily Powers ﬁ nished 69th, and Meghan Costello 74th.
For every season, there’s a reason to visit...
Seth Eastman won the Western Maine Conference Championship in style.
