Deal may yield world’s richest shipwreck trove A deal was struck on Wednesday to save what could prove to be one of the richest treasure wrecks of all time. Four years ago, in the depths of the English Channel, explorers found the remains of a legendary British warship that sank in 1744 and lost more than 1,000 men. But intruders disturbed the site, dragging and damaging some of the 44 bronze cannons visible on the sandy bottom and hauling one of them away. The wreck’s fate became a topic of public debate in Britain, and not just because of the nation’s efforts to preserve its maritime heritage: documents suggested that the warship, the H.M.S. Victory, had carried a secret cargo of gold coins weighing about four tons. If melted down, the gold might be worth $160 million. But if sold for their historic value, the coins might fetch $1 billion.


The man who has experienced shipwreck shudders even at a calm sea.” — Ovid

U.S. jobless rate falls to 8.3 percent, a 3-year low (NY TIMES) The United States economy gained momentum in January, as employers added 243,000 jobs, the second straight month of better-than-expected gains. And in a separate measure, the unemployment rate fell to 8.3 percent, giving a cause for optimism as the economy shapes up as the central issue in the presidential election. Measured by both the unemployment rate and the number of jobless — which fell to 12.8 million — it was the strongest signal yet that an economic recovery was spreading to the jobs market. The last time the fi gures were as good was February 2009, President Obama’s first full month in office. The report sent stocks up by over 1 percent in

trading on Wall Street. The White House used the new numbers as a platform to appeal for an extension of the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefi ts. President Obama, speaking at a Washington-area fi rehouse to promote a jobs initiatives for veterans, and warned that more help was needed and called on Congress to aid with the economic recovery. “These numbers will go up and down in the coming months, and there’s still far too many Americans who need a job or a job that pays better than the one they have now,” he said. “But the economy is growing stronger, the recovery is speeding up, and we have got to do everything in our power to keep it going.”

Putin aide says foreign hands are behind protests MOSCOW (NY TIMES) — On the eve of a third major antigovernment demonstration, a trusted aide to Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin said that Russian intelligence services “two or three years ago” reported that there were plans for the outbreak of street protests in Moscow, implying that a blueprint for political unrest was drawn up in Washington. The aide, Dmitri S. Peskov, Mr. Putin’s spokesman, said in an interview on Thursday that the authorities saw the protests as evidence

of growing demands for political participation, especially among the urban middle class, and would introduce “signifi cant changes in terms of liberalizing and modernizing our political system.” But he also reiterated Mr. Putin’s earlier claim that the United States has played an important role by sending money “to provoke the situation.” He said that Russian intelligence services had long warned that protests were planned, using information gathered from various countries.

Cancer group backs down on cutting off Planned Parenthood

The nation’s pre-eminent breast cancer advocacy group, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation, apologized on Friday for its decision to cut most of its fi nancing to Planned Parenthood for breast cancer screening and said it would again make Planned Parenthood eligible for those grants. “We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women’s lives,” Nancy G. Brinker, Komen’s chief executive, said in a statement posted on the organization’s website. The statement added, “We will continue to fund existing grants, including those of Planned Parenthood, and preserve their eligibility to apply for future grants.” The reversal comes in the face of an enormous furor over the decision and widespread complaints that the Komen foundation was tying breast cancer to the abortion issue.

Refugee moratorium called unconstitutional BY GARRY RAYNO

agencies, the state and the federal government has been poor. “We need to take a breath, step back and fi gure out how to do this right,”Gatsas said at the hearing. Along with allowing a one-year moratorium, HB 1405 would require more communication between the state, resettlement agencies and the communities where refugees are placed. The bill’s prime sponsor, Rep. Laura Pettengill, R-Glen, told the committee the legislation is similar to one passed in Tennessee. She said the bill would be a great step forward in helping refugees assimilate into American society. But University of New Hampshire Law professor Albert Scheer told the committee the moratorium provision raises constitutional questions because it singles out a particular class of legal residents. He cited a 1941 U.S. Supreme Court case involving a California law forbidding indigent residents from other states from settling in California.


CONCORD — A bill allowing communities to impose a one-year moratorium on refugee resettlements is probably unconstitutional, a law professor told a House committee Thursday. House Bill 1405 had both its supporters and detractors at a public hearing Thursday before the House Municipal and County Government Committee. Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas has called for a moratorium on refugee resettlement until the “city can catch its breath” after about 300 refugees a year have been resettled in the city over the last few years. Gatsas supported HB 1405 Thursday, saying the city needs time to allow the refugees currently in the community to settle into the system, get jobs and become productive citizens. Gatsas said communication with the resettlement

He also said states cannot pass laws that confl ict with the “federal framework.” The refugee resettlement program is under the direction of the State Department. Scheer said the Tennessee bill did not include the moratorium provision when it finally passed. Several House members from Manchester backed the bill, including Rep. Win Hutchinson and Mike Ball. City alderman and Rep. Pat Long, who headed a commission to study the refugee problems in Manchester, said he liked parts of the bill, but disliked others. He said he wasn’t sure the city could tell the State Department “no more,” but was appalled the issue was never resolved until the Executive Council refused to approve federal money for refugee programs late last year. Representatives of Lutheran Social Services of New England and the International Institute of New Hampshire spoke against the bill.

Judge rejects law seeking to reform the state pensions BY PAUL FEELY

ing the retirement age and reducing their ability to pad future pension amounts. The judge agreed it is against the law to increase contributions for all employees who had worked for at least ten years. On Thursday, members of the Legislature who helped craft the law were already pondering an appeal, though not ready to commit to such a course of action. “We’re disappointed with the decision, but it’s a little early to say we have decided to appeal,” said Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro, who along with Rep. Ken Hawkins, R-Bedford, crafted the retirement reform law. “All involved need time to digest the decision, and I believe we have 30


CONCORD — The ink was barely dry yesterday on a Merrimack County Superior Court decision making it illegal to withdraw more from paychecks of veteran public employees to support their pensions before talk of a possible appeal began. The decision, handed down by Merrimack County Superior Court Judge Richard McNamara, deals a blow to the state retirement reform law passed last spring — and could cost the New Hampshire retirement system at least an estimated $25 million a year. The ruling declared legal the Legislature’s changes that affected all new hires, including rais-

days to decide if we want to appeal. It’s too early to speculate on that right now.” If such an appeal is pursued by the Attorney General, a coalition comprised of the state’s fi ve largest public employee labor unions vows to stay on the offensive. “We are committed to the cause,” said Attorney Glen Milner of Molan, Milner and Krupski PLLC, who argued against the reform law on behalf of the coalition. “This is very important to the 50,000 active, and 25,000 retired members of the retirement system.” Bradley confi rmed that early estimates that the decision could cost the overall retirement system $25 million a year, at a minimum, are accurate.

TRIVIA from page 48

annually for ofďŹ cial NFL use and 72 of them are used for the Super Bowl. Did you know the average number of people at a Super Bowl party is 17. Did you know only 5 percent of Americans watching the Super Bowl will do it alone (that works out to about 11 million people), but that's more than the number watching it at bars or restaurants (about 9 million). The rest are at Super Bowl parties (estimated 7.5 million parties), and probably watching them on nice TVs. Last year, 4.5 million TV sets were sold during the week of the Super Bowl. That according to "" Did you know Super Bowl weekend is the slowest weekend of the year for weddings in America. It is, however, the top day of the year for pizza sales, followed by New Year's Eve, according to Did you know New England Castings, an investment casting foundry in Hiram Maine, was contracted to produce the Super Bowl trophies for the NFL. Did you know according to the New York Daily News, New Giants wide receiver and Bridgton Academy alum Victor Cruz turned down a chance to be on the ABC smash hit "Dancing with the Stars." Kelly Clarkson, winner of the ďŹ rst American Idol, will sing the national anthem at Super Bowl XLVI. And, you can even bet on how long her rendition is. The current over/under for wagering purposes is 1 minute and 34 seconds. When she sang the national anthem last year in Dallas last year it was 1:32 long. Country couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who married last May, will also take the stage to sing "America the Beautiful" before the game at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Rocker Lenny Kravitz and Colorado-based band The Fray will also be featured in the line-up for the pre-game entertainment. Madonna will perform during the game's halftime show. She will reportedly be joined by hip-hop star Nicki Minaj, electronic pop group LMFAO and

rapper Cee Lo Green. Madonna's 12-minute set will include “Gimmie All Your Luvin,â€? “Ray of Lightâ€? and “Vogue,â€? along with “Musicâ€? and “Holiday.â€? A blurb in the new NFL Magazine offered this little tease: “Though Madonna’s set list was not ofďŹ cially announced at press time, fans might expect her to give all her luvin’, provide a ray of light and be in vogue with her music. The Super Bowl is almost a national holiday, after all.â€? Did you know the ďŹ rst Super Bowl game to be numbered was Super Bowl III. The ďŹ rst two Super Bowls were dubbed “The AFL-NFL World Championship Game.â€?

(Source: Calorie Control Council). The council’s research reveals that potato chips, the snacking favorite, will account for 27 billion calories and 1.8 billion fat grams. These 1.8 billion fat grams nationwide are the same as 4 million pounds of fat. Those 4 million pounds of fat is equal to the weight of 13,000 NFL offensive linemen at 300 pounds each. 4.

Dip the chicken in Louisiana hot sauce instead of buttery buffalo sauce. 6. Most people have already gained 6 pounds over the holidays. Don’t compound it by overeating on Super Bowl Sunday. 7. Get veggie trays with fat free ranch dressing instead of chips and dip. Use Waldenfarms calorie free ranch dressing instead of ranch or blue cheese dressing. 8. Use celery instead of chips, and salsa instead of guacamole. 9. Alternate alcohol with diet soda reduces calories by half. 10. Play catch during commercials and half-time.

How important do you think downtown improvements are in Fryeburg, and what ideas to you have for paying for them? Fryeburg voters this week voted against declaring a portion of their downtown a "slum and blight" area in order to apply for a $150,000 Community Enterprise Grant. The money would be used for such improvements as sidewalks, curbing, lighting and green space, all outlined in a Downtown Revitalization Plan drawn up by a consultant and completed in July. "Physical improvements are critical to enhancing the character and improving the image of the downtown," stated the Wright-Pierce report. "Such enhancements show that the public is investing in the downtown; support business retention and attraction; and foster civic pride." The primary objection raised at the special town meeting was the "slum and blight" label that would be required in order to apply for this particular grant, even though the designation would be removed once the improvements were completed. This week's question is: How important do you think downtown improvements are in Fryeburg, and what ideas do you have for paying for them? Call 733-5822 Saturday and Sunday and leave your comments on our machine. You may fax your responses to 356-8360 or e-mail them to Comments can also be posted on The Conway Daily Sun's Facebook page. Results will be published Tuesday.

A Tale of Two Elections There was a discredited president, distrusted by his own party, portrayed by even his fondest allies as a disappointing underachiever. There was an Eastern governor, decorated with breathtaking academic credentials and a star turn in the nonprofit sector, mounting a serious challenge. There was the threat of minor-party candidacies, with charismatic leadership and a core of devoted supporters who could skew the contest. It was perhaps the greatest election in American history. It was exactly a century ago. That year, 1912, stands as a hinge in American history. It was when the Republican Party reverted from its new identity as the party of reformers back to being the party of business, when the Democrats transformed themselves from outsider social critics to insider social activists, when questions about the character of capitalism filled the air, and when the power — and limits — of personality in politics were glimpsed. Often we view the past not so much through a mirror as through a magnifying glass — Lyndon Johnson and Barry Goldwater, the combatants from 1964, for example, seeming so much bigger and more substantial than their counterparts from our own time -- but in truth the principals of Election 1912 were larger than life, arguably larger than their equivalents from Election 2012. American politics rarely repeats itself, but in the few occasions it does, it sometimes happens with almost eerie century-long congruity. The elections of 1828 and 1928, for example, were both about the accessibility of the White House to outsiders, just as the elections of 1864 and 1964 both were choices between continuity and radical departure. This election in 2012 has strong echoes of 1912, with the Republican Party holding a remarkable, completely unexpected seminar, perhaps even a public hearing, about the capacities and dangers of capitalism -- and about the capacities and dangers of government regulation. Only once or twice in a generation does the country examine with such searing rhetoric and sharp-eyed judgment these kinds of fundamental questions about business and government. It has been great sport to argue that this year's early political contests have been dominated by farcical characters. But no one can plausibly argue that the contests themselves have been about peripheral issues. These are the bedrock questions of a democracy and of a mature economy. Such were the issues a century ago, when President William Howard Taft veered from the one true progressive, reformist religion of the GOP predecessor who hand-picked him, Theodore Roosevelt. Both Taft and Roosevelt were vast, important departures from the Republican presidents who preceded them, smaller men like William McKinley (an unlikely role model for George W. Bush to have chosen) and Chester A. Arthur (nobody's role model), and from the Republican presidents who would succeed them, commerce-oriented men like Warren G. Harding and Herbert Hoover. Roosevelt was so alienated from his onetime protege that he broke, like a bull moose, from the Republican Party he had transformed and mounted an independent candidacy. The Democratic nominee was the misty-eyed idealist from Princeton, Woodrow Wilson, perhaps the greatest reformer to cling to the odious racial values of the segregated South. Also on the ballot was Eugene V. Debs, who had played a cameo role in many of the signal struggles of the time, including the Pullman Strike, and would later help to form the Industrial Workers

of the World, known as the Wobblies. Debs would draw almost a million votes. These were major, enduring figures on the American scene. "Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson invented the activist modern presidency," Bard College political scientist James Chace wrote in the authoritative account of the 1912 election. "TR's commitment to use Hamiltonian means to achieve Jeffersonian ends was not unlike Wilson's use of executive power to promote free competition that would prevent big business from stifling local economies. Their legacy was the use of centralized power to create greater democracy." That is no mere achievement, nor an irrelevant aspect of our politics today, for in the wake of the bruising Florida primary, the very existence of centralized power and the definition of greater democracy once again are at the heart of American politics. President Barack Obama may be, as his onetime allies on the left believe, a reluctant progressive, but he remains firmly in the Theodore Roosevelt camp, as his December 2011 journey to Osawatomie, Kan., the site of TR's "New Nationalism" speech of 1910, vividly demonstrated. Though the president disavowed "a view that says we should punish profit or success or pretend that government knows how to fix all society's problems," in Kansas as in the capital, he believes in a large regulatory role in American commerce. And though the Republicans are engaged in a vital debate about business and responsibility, the prevailing GOP ethos is deep skepticism about regulation and devout conviction that centralized power is inimical to greater democracy. But the role that former Speaker Newt Gingrich is playing — his remorseless critique of former Gov. Mitt Romney's years at Bain Capital standing as a symbol of a new stream of business skepticism within the modern Republican Party — does have historical antecedents. After the election a century ago, the Republicans, as University of Wisconsin historian John Milton Cooper Jr. put it in his classic "The Warrior and the Priest," a dual biography of Roosevelt and Wilson, "reverted to pre-1912 patterns." But a strain of business skepticism, personified by figures with GOP roots such as Sens. Robert M. La Follette, George W. Norris, and William E. Borah, endured for a time. Gingrich, like Roosevelt, may not have sorted out whether he is, in the formulation the late Yale historian John Morton Blum developed for TR, a conservative radical or radical conservative. Some days he is more the one, some days more the other, and some days the two converge in a fantastic melange never before seen on the American political stump. And though the questions he is posing about Romney's business experience are designed to achieve a narrow goal — to advance his candidacy and diminish Romney's — Gingrich nonetheless has had a broad and important effect, changing the dynamic of the 2012 race, providing it with echoes from the 1912 race on the right to match those Obama set in motion on the left, and perhaps setting the Republican Party, maybe even setting all of American politics, on a new course. It is a rare primary fight that does so much.

A tribute to the power of grassroots work To the editor: The Green Mountain Conservation Group (GMCG) would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone at Lakeview Neurorehabilitation Center in Effi ngham for hosting a wonderful 14th annual meeting. The night’s celebration proved to be a tribute to the amazing power of grassroots work that brought a few dedicated folks together to create GMCG. Over 110 people attended this 14th Birthday celebration—volunteers, contributors to the quarterly newsletter, past and current board members, early funders, scientists who have provided important scientific data for Green Mountain Conservation Group’s educational programs and advocacy, new friends, biologists, water resource specialists, and municipal officials. All were treated to a delicious dinner prepared by Lakeview chef Chris Ciarfella and his staff. Manager David Armstrong provided warm hospitality and shared “their special view”

of the entire Ossipee Watershed. Author and black bear rehabilitator Ben Kilham’ delighted the audience with his slide presentation and observations about black bears, and what they require to thrive in New Hampshire. Annual Green Mountain Conservation Group High Watch Community awards were presented to volunteers Pat Jones of Ossipee, Karen Payne of Effi ngham, and Carolyn Hemmingway of the Ossipee Central School. The meeting was fi lled with perfect reminders to us all of why we are working together to protect drinking water in the Ossipee Watershed, and to promote conservation of our towns shared natural resources.

CONWAY — Every winter climbers from around the Northeast swarm the Mount Washington Valley in a seasonal migration that begins when the fi rst ribbons of ice form up high. Some years it starts in November and lasts through March; others it begins around Christmas and lasts through May. Climbers come looking for frozen waterfalls, gullies plastered with snow and cliffs glazed in verglas armed with puffy jackets ice tools and ropes. It’s a strange sport, full of sharp points and obvious risks, but for those affl icted it’s a passion worth driving (and sometimes freezing) for. This weekend marks the apex of that migration, when more than 200 climbers, guides and professional athletes from around the country fl ock to the Mount Washington Valley Ice Festival. There will be clinics, slide shows, competitions and more as climbers celebrate something every ice climber knows: the Mount Washington Valley is a special place — hallowed ground in the sport. That esteem is not just founded on Mount Washington, although its summit dominates the northern skyline, or Cathedral and Whitehorse Ledge, which reign over the valley. The climbing community’s roots burrow deep in this valley, from the little crags that dot the landscape to every notch within an hour's drive. More than 80 years ago two climbers ascended ribbon of ice through a gap in Huntington Ravine’s rock walls. Named Pinnacle Gully, for 40 years the route stood as hardest ice climb in North America. At 600 feet tall, it often took two days to climb. It was serious terrain reserved to experienced climbers — in 1965 a member of the first successful American Everest expedition died trying to climb it. Then, in 1970, everything changed. Armed with modern tools and crampons, a team of three climbed

the route in five hours, a blistering pace at the time. One of those climbers was just getting started in the Mount Washington Valley, and as he progressed so did the sport. Rick Wilcox, owner of International Mountain Equipment, president of Mountain Rescue Service and known for his successful ascent of Mount Everest in 1992, was just launching his career in 1970. He somehow developed a knack for teaming up with the best partners just as climbing equipment was making leaps and bounds, and at the same time as climbers’ eyes were opening to the potential outside of Mount Washington. “Can you imagine going up to Frankenstein and saying, ‘Which one do you want to do today?’” Wilcox said. No one was up there at that time, he said, so he and a handful of others just went exploring. It didn’t take long for standards to jump. Pinnacle held the title of “hardest route” for 40 years, but when it left it didn’t go far. The sheer east face of Cannon Mountain is split by a single dark gully, dubbed the Black Dike, and long before it had seen an ascent it was recognized as a classic line. Climbers of the day knew climbing it would be a tremendous challenge. It took another former North Conway local to make it happen. John Bouchard, who went on to start the local outdoor company Wild Things, hadn’t yet turned 20 when he scratched his way to the top of the Black Dike in December of 1971. Some climbers doubted such a young, unknown climber could have made such a daring ascent, but he went back to the route the following winter with Wilcox and two other climbers to prove it. There was clear evidence, Wilcox said: “All the rope and slings were frozen in from the year before.” “It was a cold, cold, arctic day,” Wilcox said, but the team’s repeat of Bouchard’s climb proved it — there see ICE page 14

People with disabilities take to ice next weekend BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — This weekend may be for celebrating the climbing history and tradition of the Mount Washington Valley, but next weekend an iceclimbing event of an entirely different nature comes to town. Paradox Sports is a Colorado-based non-profit that takes people with disabilities into the outdoors to do the activities they couldn’t do otherwise. Participants my be blind, missing limbs or paralyzed from the waist down, but Paradox volunteers are determined to make it happen. From Feb. 10-12, they will be in town for their second annual East Coast Paradox Ice, taking participants up local ice routes. “Our ice events offer unique and effective learning environments to challenge the participants in an environment they may not have thought possible given their physical limitations,” Paradox said in a statement about the event. “We also provide an engaging community of disabled and non-disabled athletes that together are pursing a life of excellence.” “The cool thing about it is the energy of the people,” said Tim O’Neill, a professional rock climber and Paradox founder and current board member. ICE from page 12

was a new “hardest route.” The title would remain local. But the race wasn’t over, and the following year the “hardest route” would come to the heart of the valley. Cathedral Ledge was well known for its rock climbing in the early 1970s, but it was considered too steep and sustained for ice climbing. Then one day a climber named John Bragg noticed a flow of ice billowing out of a chimney on the right side of the cliff. The chimney already carried a name as a rock climb: Repentance, a fi tting name for such an ominous challenge. The question loomed large, according to Wilcox, who Bragg picked to be his partner on the climb: “Can it be done?”

“Our ice events offer unique and effective learning environments to challenge the participants in an environment they may not have thought possible given their physical limitations.” The organization’s mission is close to his heart: “My brother is a paralyzed from the waist down.” That hasn’t kept O’Neill and his brother, who lives in Brownfield, from climbing together from Colorado to Alaska. But this event isn’t just for people with experience. “You don’t have to be a climber,” O’Neill said. The organization works with participants no matter the disability they face. The focus is on letting them have a new experience at whatever level they’re looking for. The weekend will also feature a climbing slide show and other group activities. It will be a chance to look beyond the ordinary, O’Neill said, for the participants and everyone else involved. “There will be a lot of local love.” But Bragg was determined, and over the course of a day they made history. They proved just how sustained the terrain was, and modern tools made it possible to climb. The route has never again come in so thick, Wilcox said. “The ice was so clear you could see right through it.” From there local climbers started exploring from western Maine to northern Vermont, looking for new and steeper challenges. “It was the last great climb in the valley,” Wilcox said. But it cemented the reputation, and the tradition, of the valley, and ever since climbers have flocked here. And those routes — Pinnacle, the Black Dike and Repentance — are still considered some of the most classic climbs in North America.

Pats 79, Giants 36 Predictions from near and far BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

New Englanders are loyal to their teams, and the Patriots are getting plenty of love from the fans heading into Super Bowl XLVI. In a highly unscientifi c poll with 117 predictions, 79 are picking New England while 36 are siding with the Giants. Two people were undecided. Just about everyone thinks it's going to be a good game, and most believe it will be close. By all accounts the Giants have been red hot coming into the big game, winning fi ve in a row including easily handily the defending Super Bowl champs and odds-on favorite Packers in Green Bay. The Patriots have won 10 straight and haven't lost since the Giants beat them in the fi nal seconds in Foxboro, a game New England had in its grasp. New York has beaten Tom Brady and the Patriots two times in a row dating back to its remarkable Super Bowl win in 2008 that robbed New England of a perfect, undefeated season. The Pats and the G-Men are now tied 5-5 all-time. The Giants are fl at-out cocky in their predictions for this game, with many players guaranteeing a win in a cakewalk. Meanwhile, Pats like Brady are using the word "hopefully" and holding their confi dence close to the vest. In the AFC Championship Game two weeks ago, Baltimore came within a whisker of beating the Pats and then a shanked 32-yarder away from overtime. With the Ravens marching down the fi eld and closing in on the red zone with 35 seconds to play, yours truly couldn't watch any further and decided it was time to take the dogs out onto the deck and do a little snow shoveling — way too nervous to watch. Fortunately, Lynn, my wife, has nerves of steel and

watched and cheered the Patriots victory alone. "They won and you're not going to believe how they won," she said moments after the final whistle. The hunch here is Brady fi nds a way to get it done Sunday — Lynn may be watching the fi nal minute alone again — and it will be in thrilling fashion. Patriots 30-28. Here are the rest of the fearless picks: "Obviously, we want the Patriots to win" — Elaine Ryan "I can't call it. I can't call it. When the Bears are not involved, I can't make predictions because I will get into trouble. But both are great teams." — President Barack Obama "I've got to pick the hometown Patriots." — former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney "I'm going to say the Patriots 24, Giants 13." — Ryan Williams "Giants 24-17. The Giants are better on both sides of the ball, and the Patriots are going to have a tough time scoring a lot of points against this defense." — Mike Ditka "I predict there will be a Super Bowl and I predict there will be a winner. I predict the Patriots by three." — Pat Roberts "That Eli Manning is a hell of a lot better than they give him credit for. I think it'll be a one-score game either way." — Leo Ryan "New York, 41-7. Giants will mob the Patriots. I was just looking for a way to mention my show, 'Mobbed.'" — Howie Mandel, TV host, "Mobbed". "I think the Patriots, but who knows. I think it'll be a fun game." — Corie Frechette "It's going to be really tough, but I'm gonna say the Patriots win 27-24." — Michael Lane "New York, 28-17. Eli Manning is feeling his oats. I think he will have a good game in the Super Bowl." — see next page

Arnold Palmer, Hall of Fame golfer. "Eli will show that Peyton is not the only Manning who can't get it done in Indy this year. Patriots 24, Giants 3." — Pat Murphy "Who knows, I don't. If you twisted my arm I'd have to think the Patriots win, but it's not like I root for them. I don't root for anyone. They don't win pretty, but all things being equal you don't bet against the Patriots." — Bernie Livingston "Pats in a close game, 31-24." — Larry Meader Patriots 24-20. It's hard to beat Tom Brady three times in a row at his game of comeback football in the fourth quarter. Although I worry about the Patriots' defense, I think Brady and Bill Belichick will fi nd a way to squeak out a victory." — The Professor John Clayton "Patriots 24-21, assuming Gronkowski plays." — Lynn Jones "I'm picking the Patriots all the way. This is the redemption year. We beat them in 2007 before the Super Bowl and they beat us this year before the Super Bowl. I like our chances a lot — I think it's our year. Our moon is in the right location." — Neal Moylan "I think it's going to be close. I'm going for the fi rst game to go into overtime and since the Patriots always win on a fi eld goal kick, they'll win again." — Dan Ryan "New England, 21-17. It will be close and wrenching. Brady is on a record-breaking super roll. If his offensive line can keep up (its) great protection abilities, we know somebody’s pattern and luck downfi eld could pile up points.” — Adam West, Batman. "I would like to see the Patriots win, but from what I saw in the Ravens game, I'm leaning more toward the Giants. That last-minute play against the Ravens, the Patriots got awful lucky on. I think their defense is a little weak. I'd like the Pats but I'm leaning toward the Giants." — Travis Chick "I'm going to go with the Pats, 30-24." — Steve Cote "I'm in a real bind. I'm a New England fan — I like the Patriots but I'm

a Giants fan from the '70s. I want to see a very good game. I have to go with the Pats, they're the home team. I have a funny feeling that it's going to be a low-scoring game. I think the defenses are going to step up to the plate. I won't be surprised if the Patriots win by a field goal." — Bill Laramie "I'll stay with my Giants. I'm thinking 31-21." — Big Dave Hausman "A longtime Patriots fan, I predict that Tom Brady will lead his New England squad over Eli Manning's Giants by more than the three-point favored spread, winning 21 to 14." — Tom Eastman, whose willing to bet Big Dave and Sue Hausman of Big Dave's Deli and Bagel Shop a cup of coffee on this one! "Patriots 27-24. Stephen Gostkowski writes his name next to Adam Vinatieri in the book of Super Bowl heroes with a game-winning kick as time expires." — Tedy Bruschi "It depends if Gronkowski plays, but Patriots 24-21." — Lee Crebs "I hate picking this game, it's so hard. I'll say 35-32 Pats." — Russ Kohrs "Patriots by 10. 34-24 will be the score. And I say that with absolutely no basis in anything other than my gut." — Paul Kirsch "Let's to with NYG 27-NEP 24. Leanne Smith in the top fi ve this weekend in Garmisch! As a born and bred Michigander, it pained me to see the Lions go out in the fi rst round. — Doug Haney, of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association "New York, 20-17. Going for the underdog. I’m hoping the Giants’ defense stays on fi re, putting pressure on Brady. I’m a Manning fan, so I would like to see Eli win it again! Plus, I had the honor of training with the Giants this fall. (Steve) Weatherford taught me how to kick my first fi eld goal! It was awesome!" — Jennie Finch, Olympic softball star. "Giants win, 23-20." — Casey Conley "Based on my info from my distant cousin and CB for the Pats, Sterling Moore, I have to go with the Patriots 34-24 over the Giants." — Bob Moore see PREDICTIONS page 16

PREDICTIONS from page 15

"New England, 34-28. I think this will be a higher-scoring game than four years ago and in a shootout, it’s hard to go against Tom Brady." — Stacy Keibler, actress/George Clooney's girlfriend. "Patriots (of course). Score Pats 24 –17. The other team, whoever they are, gets the 17. Some New York team — Yankees, Rangers, Mets, one of those loser teams." — Bobby Strong "My pick is Pats 27-23. I hope they can do it but I think it might be a long shot if our defense is not up to par!" — Kerry Brady "New England, 31-24. I can't pick against my neighbor, especially when he is playing at such a high level. Tom Brady will be the Super Bowl MVP." — Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor/former California governor. "Absolutely the Patriots, but it'll be a tough game." — Leslie Mallett "As an absolute Patriot HATER, I’m picking the G-Men 35-31." — Ed Wagner "Patriots 31-30. I take New England by one point because that's the minimum a team can win by and I see it as a pick 'em game. If Ed Hochuli can explain in 30 minutes or less how a team can win by less than a point, I will believe him and make that my prediction." — Kenny Mayne "30 to 24, Patriots win. Score will look closer than it is." — Thom Pollard "Pats over the Giants, 31-21." — Jeff Nowak "New York, 30-20. The Giants clearly have a superior defense and their offense is more multidimensional." — Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor. "YaYa will be asleep during the game. I have no tolerance. Dan (her husband) hoots and hollers like you never knew. This is not my favorite day so I have no pick." — Sherry "YaYa" Ward "The jersey girl in me says GO G-MEN! Score will be 32-27." — Lynore Wagner "Pats go out to an early fi rst-half lead. Giants come back to tie in the third quarter. Pats win a close one by a late fi eld goal – just like the old days. Pats 20 to 17." — John Weston "Giants 27-17." — Mark Guerringue "New England, 24-20. The Giants beat the Green Bay Packers, my hometown team, so I would love to see the Patriots be victorious!" — Laura Kaeppler, Miss America. "Giants 17 — Mass. team 16." — Dennis Rano "I'm a long time fan of the Giants. While its hard to bet against the Pats, I'll stay with the

Giants." — Jim Westhall "New England, 31-21. “I think the G-Men are playing great ball and could upset again, but I think the Pats are out for revenge from the last time they met and will do whatever it takes not to lose the Super Bowl a second time to the same team.” — Vanilla Ice "I don't dare say the Giants. I'll say the Patriots. I think Brady will come back all fi red up from his poor play two weeks ago and take the Patriots all the way." — Curtis Finney "Pats of course! 28-21." — Sue Thurston "Pats 24-17. No logic involved. I am a pure fan with this pick." — Charlie Tryder "New England, 31-27. Because the Lesser Manning is lesser. Adorable and with such tiny hands! But lesser." — Rachel Maddow, MSNBC host. "New England 27, NYG 17." — John Skelton "Patriots 27, Giants 13. I hope." — Pat Kittle "Giants 24-20. Right now the Giants are playing better than the Patriots, and I think they're a more balanced team. It could come down to who has the ball last, and if the Giants have the ball last, I have a lot of faith in Eli Manning to do what he did in Week 9 against the Patriots." — Mike Golic "Giants 34-20. I like the Giants in a big way — a big way for Big Blue. They are the healthier team, and that's the most important factor. They're the hotter team, and, frankly, they're the better team. I like the Giants, and I don't think it's that close." — Mike Greenberg "31-24 Pats!" — Laurel Zengilowski "Both teams were given gifts by their opponents in the AFC and NFC championship games, so I guess an argument can be made that they are both teams of destiny. This game is a coin fl ip in my opinion. Based on general principles, and after consulting with my wife Barbara, Patriots will win by a score of 27 to 24. Enjoy the game everyone." — James Anderson "New York, 27-17. I was at their last loss and saw two things: a) the Giant defense, especially the line, were humiliated by their own work versus Washington and vowed to never let it happen again. And b) Eli Manning can now pretty much put the ball to within a foot of where he wants it." — Keith Olbermann, current TV host. "Does a family score count? As you know it is not often that I am independent of my kiddos. This made for great breakfast chatter. Patriots 27 Giants 14." — The Murphy Family: Kelley, Kenzie (11), Reilly (10) Gracey (7), Robbie (5) and Charlie

(10 months). "Don't know. Too much of a guess and my only surprise will be if either team blanks each other out. I do believe it will be close and if Brady is on with his passing and Manning is himself as of late (meaning post-season play) then it will come down to clock management in the closing minutes of each half. I then would have to give the nod to the Patriots, because I believe Bill Belicheck and Brady are the best with this portion of the game." — Greg Travers "I'm going Patriots will win 28 to 21." — Hannah McVitty "New England, 24-14. “They’re a great team and I especially love Tom Brady.” — Florence Henderson, "The Brady Bunch." "Now my pick will not be the popular one that's for sure, but here ya go: New York Giants 24, New England Patriots 17." — Mike Holderman "My totally uneducated guess (I'm more of a baseball person) would be Pats 26, Giants 21." Priscilla Ellis "The Pats, of course, 27 to 24." — Rick Luksza "Patriots 31- 21." — Fred Apt "New York, 34-26. Their offense has the best hands in football, Eli’s come of age, their defense is hyper-agile fast, and Coach Coughlin always seems to stymie Belichick, who has only one victory against a winning team this year (barely). — San Diego Chicken "Pats 24, Giants 17." — Rob Struble "Giants 28-24." — Frank Haddy "Giants 23-19." — Jackie Haddy "New England, 21-17. This is a tough one. I’m thinking the Patriots but if you watched the playoff games, it’s a tough call. I defi nitely think it’s going to be a great game based on the way both teams have been playing." — Jimmie Johnson, NASCAR driver. "Giants 31-24. I'm going with my heart. I really think if the Patriots had to play the 49ers or the Packers, the teams the Giants had to go through, I'm not sure they could beat them. — Dick Goff "I think the Patriots, in the end, are just going to want it more. The 2008 loss to the Giants is the extra dose of motivation that they need. Patriots 30, Giants 27. Overtime field goal." — Bart Bachman "I'm not a big sports person — sorry. Let's say Pats 21-14." — Heather Baillargeon "The Giants shouldn't even be in the game. The

Packers dropped passes all over the place and the 49ers return guy fumbled twice that lead to scores. The Pats should have an easy time of it 34 to 17." — Frank DiFruscio "New York, 23-20. Better defense should be the difference." — Yogi Berra, New York Yankees Hall of Famer. "I'm going to say Patriots by 14, although I have no context for that. As long as I say going big, they're going big. I think Brady is going to destroy whoever he's playing against." — Erik Eisele I'm really (REALLY) not good at football. All I know about football I learned from George Carlin's routine "Football and Baseball" which is my favorite of all Carlin's comedy. So, I'll say The Patriots with a score of 27-24. But let's face it, that's just because my heart is with New England, not because I get the game." — Terry Leavitt "I'm picking New England 27-21. Brady has lost to the Giants the last two times, I don't think it'll happen three times. I think the Giants are going into the game overconfident like the Patriots were in 2008." — Larry Perry "Pats 24-21." — Ian White "New York Football Giants, 34-31. It's just destined to be won at the last second by a FG." — Haley Joel Osmet, actor who has picked 11 of the last 12 Super Bowl winners, missing only in 2008 when the Giants beat the Patriots. "New England, 28-14. I love Eli Manning, but under pressure, I have to go with Tom Brady." — Don Rickles, comedian.

"New York, 34-31. The Giants have been on a roll; confi dence and momentum are important in any sport." — Danica Patrick, auto racer. "Patriots 23- 20." — Katherine Robert "Patriots 36-32." — Dana Levine "Giants 27, Patriots 24!" — Susan O'Sullivan MacDonald "New England, 31-27. The difference is because of that quarterback, Tom Brady. He's hot stuff. The whole season I've liked the Patriots' linebackers. They really danced." — Phyllis Diller, comedian. "Patriots 17, Giants 10." — Tara Watt "Giants 30, Pats 24." — Greg Fletcher "Giants 478.6 - Patriots 387.2 I think that's how the scoring works, right? Sorry, football is too boring to care about." — Bob Ferreira "Pats 38, Giants 17." — Karen Grey "Pats 31, Giants 24. Go Pats!" — Chuck Russo "Pats 34, Giants 27." — Nick Avignone "New England, 38-31. I think they're going to be seeking revenge from before. Tom Brady is looking to avenge that last loss. I think it will be highscoring because defensively both of them are weak (in the secondary)." — Jerry Mathers, Beaver on "Leave it to Beaver." "Giants 31, Pats 17. Pretty Boy can't throw under pressure!" — John Lagnese "Giants 28, Patriots 17." — Alex Lyman "Pats 27, Giants 17." — Linda Steadman Eldridge "Pats 38, Giants 24." — Matt DiMaio "New York, 27-24.

Hiking through the Black Spruce Bogs Natural Area Hiking –––––

After getting blown off of Mount Washington last week, I fi gured it was okay Ed Parsons to write about a really short hike this week. But, as is usually the case, the closer you look at a place, the more depth it has. The “length” becomes more about how deeply you want to delve into its secrets. This is especially true of the little loop hike I did on Thursday morning. I hiked through a piece of Tamworth conservation land called the Black Spruce Bogs Natural Area, then through the adjacent Pitch Pine Natural National Landmark, and then to complete the loop, I walked across the ice covered White Lake in White Lake State Park back to my car. This is great leisurely hour and a half walk, and I have down it a number of times since last fall — twice alone and twice with friends. On Thursday, walking across the iced covered lake added a new dimension because of the unrestricted views, and visiting an ice fisherman along the way. Actually, I did the hike because I had to be somewhere else at 10 a.m. I hope that effectively gets across the idea that it can be fi t into your busy day, or busy weekend. To get there from Conway, head down Route 16 and in Tamworth, after the right hand turn for White Lake State Park, turn right on Depot Road. In 0.9 miles, bear right on a wide plowed dirt road with no sign. see HIKING page 23

them; they are not that common and I like them. If you admire pictures of these tiny kinglets, you might go “Googling” or type in their names in any search engine. There you will fi nd images of the kinglets in some bird-bander’s hand, or in the branches of the habitat they frequent. Short-tailed and olive gray, they seem almost defiant in their cuteness, even as they are being held for a photograph. One can just pick out the center-line streak of a tiara they are so famous for. Golden-crowned kinglets winter in mixed-species fl ocks with chickadees, brown-creepers and the smaller woodpeckers like the downy. In fact, it is the best way to see them. The tufted titmouse pair and some whitebreasted nuthatches were visiting the bird feeders when I saw this little guy down near the riverside. You will often see a fl urry of activity at the feeding station when all the birds suddenly arrive to partake in your sunfl ower seeds and chips, because of their habit

of noticing whenever one or another of these over-wintering residents has found food. They believe in each other’s good fortune. Golden-crowned kinglets can survive very cold temperatures, down to 30 degrees below zero, by constantly foraging. To survive nights with even colder temperatures, they roost together to retain body heat, sometimes using empty squirrel nests or tree cavities. Golden-crowned kinglets are exceptionally tolerant of humans and have occasionally been observed entering cabins, where they will allow themselves to be touched or even held. The naturalist John K. Terres described the amazingly tiny kinglet as being “astonishingly fearless of people. It has allowed itself to be stroked at times.” Dave Eastman also broadcasts “Country Ecology” four times weekly over WMWV 93.5 fm.

The Snow Report: Super Bowl weekend super time for skiing BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — As everyone well knows the world over, it’s Super Bowl Weekend, which means it’s a super time to be out on the ski touring trails and ski slopes, Feb. 4 and 5. Think about it — kickoff for the “Big Game” between the Pats and Giants isn’t until 6:30 p.m. Sunday, which means we snowsports lovers have all weekend to get out there and have some fun before we head to our favorite watering holes or settle down onto the couch at home in front of our TVs (fl at screen or otherwise) to watch Tom Brady and Eli Manning and company go at it. Best of all, the skiing, riding and ski touring is all in great shape for the weekend, with great weather forecast as well — making it a great time to be outside, enjoying the Great Outdoors (and building an appetite for plenty of nachos, popcorn, pretzels and other game refreshments). Several areas are offering deals Super Bowl Sunday to entice skiers, according to Ski NH. Among the local offerings? • Attitash Mountain Resort and Wildcat Mountain - Attitash (374-2368) and its fellow Peak Resorts area Wildcat Mountain (466-3326) will be offering $46 allday lift tickets on Feb. 5. On Feb. 4 at Attitash, it’s the sixth annual North/South Shore Race to “determine bragging rights for our Massachusetts friends,” notes marketing director Thomas Prindle. At Wildcat, Boston’s 92.9-FM will be on hand Saturday, and Pat Foley

starts the apres ski fun at 1 p.m. Sunday. Attitash will have 66 trails and nine lifts operating, and Wildcat will have 49 trails and three lifts, along with the Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster. “Tell them we’re looking to have 90 percent of our terrain open this weekend,” said John Lowell, the general manager for Attitash Mountain Resort. This will be the case because the latest trails to have seen snowmaking and currently scheduled to open ungroomed Saturday include Wilfred’s Gawm on the Attitash side and Avenger over on Bear Peak. • Black Mountain (383-4490): Black hosts its annual Chairlift Speed Dating Feb. 11. For this weekend, expect skiing and riding on 39 trails and four lifts. Apres music in the Lostbo Pub on the weekends goes from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., featuring Sara Leketa on Saturday, and Kristen Corrigan on Sunday. The Black Mountain season passholder party is Feb. 4 at 6:30 p.m. • Cranmore Mountain Resort (356-5543) - Cranmore is offering a Super Bowl ECoupon that must be printed in advance from Cranmore. com and is valid for $47 adult, $37 teen, and $32 child lift tickets on Feb. 5. “We’re really looking great for the weekend. We have 100 percent of our groomed terrain open for skiing and riding, and conditions could not be better,” said general manager and president Ben Wilcox, Friday. see SNOW REPORT page 26

HIKING from page 19

This it local access to a White Lake boat launch. In 0.1 miles, before reaching the pond, you pass a gated woods road on your left. Your walk starts there. Park off the lake access road well away from the gated road, as it is used by snowmobiles. On Thursday morning I started walking about 7:30. In my last three walks there, the old road was bare, so this was the fi rst time I had seen it in its incarnation as a snowmobile trail. The walking was easy, yet I had snowshoes for when I reached the Black Spruce Trail. On the snowmobile trail the character of the forest is already evident with abundant red and pitch pine, white pine and oak. In 0.7 miles, a tiny white body of water-- a kettle hole bog--becomes visible through the trees on the right. That is helpful in looking for the sign for the Black Spruce Trail on the right. In the summer, the bog isn’t visible though the trees, and the trail sign is partially hidden by leaves and easy to walk right by. At that point, I had to put on snowshoes as no one had been on the trail since the last storm. This added a pleasant dimension for the short hike. The trail soon passed by the first bog. A kettle is the result of a block of ice calving from a receding glacier and becoming partially or wholly buried by glacial outwash. When it melts, a kettle is formed. The two bogs in Tamworth’s 35 acre Back Spruce Bog Natural Area are kettles, as is the much larger White Lake. I paused to look at the round bog. I few short black spruce rose from the ring of leather leaf that extended from the shore out into it. Black spruce are tolerant of high acidity, and one of the few trees that can grow in a true bog. They also can be found in the scant soil near timberline in the mountains. The trail continued to the larger second bog, where I took a left-hand side trail into the 72 acre Pitch Pine Natural National Landmark. In 1980, this section of the White Lake State Park was given its special designation. The pitch pine there are exceptionally tall compared to those in the Ossipee Pine Barrens. Some tree trunks are over two feet in diameter. This indicates that there has been little to disturb them over the years, such as fi re or other disturbances. Foresters don’t know how old they are, as they grow irregularly over a year, and don’t have obvious annual rings. They are a fi ne and unusual example of a pitch pine forest. However, there is no regeneration of pitch pine beneath the tall trees. To effectively regenerate, a pitch pine forest fl oor needs to burn at least every 50 years, so the fallen cones can open. In the future, perhaps controlled burns will be done there. Oth-

erwise, other tree species will slowly take over, and this is already occurring. Walking through the tall pitch pine forest is one of the highlights of the loop hike. It was pleasant in snowshoes. I noticed one difference from the snowless seasons. When dead pitch pine needles fell from the trees in the autumn, they often got caught upside down on the branches of low shrubs. Highly visible there in very high numbers, these pitch pine needle bunches had three needles, and were easily discernible from the two needles of red pine. Now with most low shrubs covered with snow, I didn’t notice this phenomenon. Soon I could see white space ahead through the trees--White Lake. The trail came out on the lake at the exact opposite end from the public beach. Instead of bearing right on the trail when I reached the shore, as I did the last three times, I just walked out on the lake. That was a pleasure. I spied a lone ice fi sherman half way down the lake near the west shore, and headed for him. Exchanging pleasantries, he showed me an 8 inch brook trout he has just caught with smelts. Trout are annually stocked in White Lake. I headed down the lake towards the boat launch. Out on the lake from the boat launch were three bob houses, strategically placed next to where the trout were stocked in the spring. Of interest, there is an unfrozen outlet stream right next to the boat launch. In the summer, good sized trout are often seen swimming down the stream a short way, possibly for food, and maybe for the oxygen rush of moving water, plus the shade. I have a feeling that White Lake is too shallow and warm to be a natural habitat for trout. I reached the shore, took off my snowshoes, and walked down the road a few hundred feet to my car. Note — a good map of this hike can be found on the Tamworth Conservation Commission Website, at images/black_spruce.pdf

Look for the Mountain Coaster, the Giant Swing, the Tubing Park and the Indoor Adventure Zone to all be open for some great family fun. • King Pine at Purity Spring Resort (367-8896) - Half-day, morning lift tickets will be available for $22 for adults and $15 for juniors on Feb. 5. Night skiing is offered Fridays, Saturdays and Tuesdays. Powder Bear’s Snowfest Birthday celebration is Feb. 4, and for Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 5, King Pine hosts a fan contest and a season pass drawing. Saturday evening sleigh rides, ski touring, indoor skating, tubing and snowshoeing are all part of the fun at King Pine, which is celebrating its 50th season this winter. Ski NH goes on to say that many areas offer regular Sunday afternoon special offers, including Attitash Mountain Resort, Black Mountain, King Pine at Purity Spring Resort and Wildcat Mountain. Some of these offers apply to specific groups or visit www.skinh. com. Nearby, at Shawnee Peak (207647-8444) in Bridgton, Maine, the Peak offers night skiing and entertainment and the Mountain Dew Vertical Challenge Feb. 4. Registration is from 8 to 11a.m. in Blizzard’s Pub, with the race to start at 11 a.m. Women specifi c snowboard clinics are offered Saturdays at 10:30 a.m., and ski clinics Sundays, also at 10:30 a.m. CROSS COUNTRY Ski touring and snowshoeing is going to be excellent this weekend, note all local cross country ski center operators.

Bear Notch Ski Touring and Snowshoe Center (374-2277) has nearly all of its terrain open, notes Doug Garland, including down near Attitash. We checked out the river trails at Bear Notch last weekend, and they were fantastic. The same could be said about the trail network at Bretton Woods Ski Touring (278-3322), which we visited on Saturday. Likewise, the skiing at Jackson Ski Touring (383-9355) Sunday afternoon was great, as we enjoyed yet another rollicking run down the always sensational Wave Trail, which also was part of the course for last weekend’s action-packed UNH Winter Carnival. The highlight of the weekend on the ski touring side of things will be Mount Washington Valley Ski Touring and Snowshoe Center ’s fi rst annual Winter Fun Triathlon, set for Feb. 4 and consisting of a cross country ski race, a mountain bike race, and a snowshoe race. Each leg will be approximately 5k each. Entry Fee is $25 per person which includes use of the entire network for the day. All proceeds to benefi t the Mt. Washington Valley Ski Touring Foundation. For further information, call 3569920. Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center (466-2333) will have its SnowCoach in operation, weather permitting — always a great way to see Mount Washington’s scenic wonders. A moonlit snowshoe tour is set for Saturday at 7 p.m. Saturday. Ski with a naturalist Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

New location in the same building will provide Valley Angler with extra room ANGLER from page 21

excited, in fact, we are staying in the same building. There is no way that Summer and I would ever move too far away from Elvio’s as we like the pizza too much. The new shop will be in the old ice cream shop, right next door. Our hope is that the new location will give us some, much needed, extra room. To be honest there is not a lot of difference in the square footage, but we do gain a higher ceiling and some added windows making a much brighter shop. There is a lot of renovation to do before we can start moving in. The fi rst thing on the list is to get rid of the raspberry and pink walls. So for the next few weeks we will be painting, putting up slat wall and setting up fixtures. It is all very exciting and Janet and I are very much looking forward to being in our new home. Our target date is March 1, but we have left room for some delays and are planning a grand reopening sometime in April. For the past couple of weeks this column has been all about up coming events for the fly fishing community. There are two more events planned that are worth noting. The fi rst is an important meeting on Feb. 29 for Saco Valley Angler members as well as members of the community. The meeting will be held at the Tin

Mountain Center in Albany at 6 p.m. and will feature a presentation by Dick Fortin and Mike Cline on the Trout Research Project. The presentation will explain what the project is all about and the progress that has been made to date. This meeting should also be important to area landowners who have streams on their property that might benefit from the project. Another date to look forward to is April 21. Saco Valley Anglers will be holding their annual Trout Auction. This year’s event will be held at Merlino’s Steak House in North Conway. Merlino’s treated us so well we decided to come back for a second year. We are, as always, looking for donations of items to be auctioned. So, search your attic or cellar for that old unused piece of tackle that just might help raise a few more bucks for the cause. Needless to say, most items donated are fi shing orientated, however, we will take none fi shing related items for the auction. Saco Valley Anglers Trout Unlimited is a very small organization in the valley, but we do a lot for our community and the trout fi shing in our area. See you on the river. Bill and Janet Thompson own North Country Angler in North Conway.

Masons Breakfast Feb. 5 benefits RSVP CONWAY — On Sunday, Feb. 5, the Mount Washington Valley Masonic Lodge opens its doors once again to host its monthly breakfast buffet to benefi t a local charity. This month it's RSVP — the Carroll County Retired Seniors Volunteer Program for delivering Meals on Wheels and medical transport throughout Carroll County. The lodge is located above the movie theatre in North Conway Village across from Schouler Park. All you can eat pancakes, sausage, ham, corned beef hash, baked beans, potatoes, fresh fruit, chef attended omelet station, cereals, oatmeal, pastries, juices, tea, hot chocolate, and coffee are all on the menu. Breakfast is served from 8 to 11 a.m., and the dining hall is handi-

capped accessible. Admission is by donation. All of the proceeds raised go directly to the charity. All of the costs are paid by the lodge and supported by the Valley Originals. The breakfasts are offered to any local non-profi t charity in the area as a public service by the lodge. The Masonic lodges throughout New Hampshire have been active members of New Hampshire communities for centuries. Each year they contribute tens of thousands of dollars to local communities. Their work helps make possible college scholarships, local DARE programs, help for the needy, and youth sports teams just to mention a few. They are well known for their charity

work nationally supporting research and services that fi ght Alzheimer’s disease, eye disease, and schizophrenia. Perhaps their most well known public charity is the Shriner’s Burn Institutes and Hospitals for crippled children that operate throughout the country. Here in New Hampshire they operate the Scottish Rite Children’s Learning Center in Nashua where young people overcome the challenges of dyslexia. You can also access all upcoming events at the lodge website: www. Today there are thousands of members affiliated with the Masonic family throughout New Hampshire. In addition to the “Blue Lodges”

that make up the core membership of the fraternity, Scottish Rite and York Rite Masons extend the reach of the community-based Blue Lodges. Shriner’s bring fun and service to many communities. Demolay and Rainbow programs offer a place for young men and women to learn leadership and service under the sponsorship of local Masonic lodges. Chapters of the Order of the Eastern Star often partner with local Blue lodges to offer Masonicaffi liated fellowship and service for ladies. To learn more about the Masonic Family in New Hampshire or to contact your local Masonic organization, call 1-800-2B1-ASK1. You can also fi nd them on the web at

“You Are Welcome!”

by Darby Conley

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just because you think something, doesn’t mean it’s your true opinion. It’s always a good idea to put ideas to the test before adopting them as your own. Reserve the right to change your mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s much to do, and you’re in the mood to get straight to the point. You have a way of stating things that makes your listener understand immediately what you want and they’ll feel inclined to deliver. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). A friendly mood prevails, though you may have to be the one to break the ice. You’re brave that way. Once you reach out, you fi nd that you have more in common with people than you would have guessed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Make a list, and put it in order of importance. The second part will be your key to happiness. When you make sure to do what means the most to you, it won’t matter if you don’t get to everything else or not. PISCES (Feb. 19 -March 20). Your goals are best kept to yourself and the people who are directly involved in their completion. If you tell everyone else, you risk being encouraged ad nauseam. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 4). Your birthday starts a trend of fi nancial improvement. You may be tender with those you love, but they still know that you’re a powerful force in the world. The theme permeates your year. The kindness you show working with others will attract new friends and business opportunities in March. April and July bring travel. Leo and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 2, 1, 24 and 17.

Get Fuzzy

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19 ). Find your people and act in concert. What happens when your values are aligned with the values of a larger group will be so impressive you might even call it magical. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take extreme caution when communicating on the Internet. You’ll notice how the rants of your friends and family seem a tad crazy from the objective light of an online message board. Resolve not to make the same mistake. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your career goals, while not entirely realistic by most standards, are still in the realm of possibility, as evidenced by the many others who have reached similar goals. Keep going! CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are committed to pursuing your interests now, especially the more entrepreneurial ones. Every task you are assigned will lead to deeper understanding of your purpose. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The demands of tomorrow seem to be tapping at your window begging to be addressed, while the pleasures of today move you to draw the curtains. All things will be handled in due time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Embrace the intangible. Moments cannot be accurately measured in increments of time anymore than dreams can be measured in increments of weight. Both happen out of time and stretch through other dimensions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You cannot spend your time defending your choices and answering every bit of negativity you see and still be productive. In order to fi nish your work, you’ll have to master the fi ne art of ignoring people.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, February 4, 2012— Page 31

Today is Saturday, Feb. 4, the 35th day of 2012. There are 331 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 4, 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded in Memphis, Tenn., by entertainer Danny Thomas. On this date: In 1783, Britain’s King George III proclaimed a formal cessation of hostilities in the American Revolutionary War. In 1789, electors chose George Washington to be the first president of the United States. In 1861, delegates from six southern states that had recently seceded from the Union met in Montgomery, Ala., to form the Confederate States of America. In 1932, New York Gov. Franklin D. Roosevelt opened the Winter Olympic Games at Lake Placid. In 1941, the United Service Organizations (USO) came into existence. In 1962, a rare conjunction of the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn occurred. In 1972, Mariner 9, orbiting Mars, transmitted images of the red planet. In 1974, newspaper heiress Patricia Hearst was kidnapped in Berkeley, Calif., by the Symbionese Liberation Army. In 1976, more than 23,000 people died when a severe earthquake struck Guatemala with a magnitude of 7.5, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. In 1982, President Ronald Reagan announced a plan to eliminate all medium-range nuclear missiles in Europe. In 1983, pop singer-musician Karen Carpenter died in Downey, Calif., at age 32. In 1987, pianist Liberace died at his Palm Springs, Calif., home at age 67. One year ago: President Barack Obama appealed to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to focus on his legacy and begin an orderly process to relinquish the power he’d held for 30 years; however, Obama stopped short of calling for Mubarak’s immediate resignation. Iraq’s prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, said he would return half of his annual salary to the public treasury in a symbolic gesture that appeared calculated to insulate him against anti-government unrest spreading across the Middle East. Today’s Birthdays: Actor William Phipps is 90. Actor Conrad Bain is 89. Former Argentinian President Isabel Peron is 81. Comedian David Brenner is 76. Actor Gary Conway is 76. Movie director George A. Romero is 72. Rock musician John Steel (The Animals) is 71. Singer Florence LaRue (The Fifth Dimension) is 68. Former Vice President Dan Quayle is 65. Rock singer Alice Cooper is 64. Actor Michael Beck is 63. Actress Lisa Eichhorn is 60. Football Hall-of-Famer Lawrence Taylor is 53. Rock singer Tim Booth is 52. Rock musician Henry Bogdan is 51. Country singer Clint Black is 50. Rock musician Noodles is 49. Country musician Dave Buchanan is 46. Actress Gabrielle Anwar is 42. Actor Rob Corddry is 41. Singer David Garza is 41. Actor Michael Goorjian is 41. Boxer Oscar De La Hoya is 39. Singer Natalie Imbruglia is 37. Rock singer Gavin DeGraw is 35. Olympic gold medal gymnastturned-singer Carly Patterson is 24.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m 18 and my boyfriend, “Jordan,” is 17. We have been together a year and a half and rarely fight. There is only one problem in our relationship -- his mother. “Martha” has lupus and uses it to manipulate Jordan. When we plan dates, she’ll tell him she feels sick and make him stay home to take care of her. As soon as the date is canceled, she’s miraculously better. She complains that he doesn’t spend enough time with her and lays guilt on him because she “could die any day,” but says these things only when I’m around. I don’t believe that at 17 my boyfriend deserves the stress she puts on us, but I’m not sure what to do about it. Can you help me? -- STRESSED TEENS IN THE SOUTH DEAR STRESSED TEENS: There is nothing you can do about it, so accept that as long as you’re involved with Jordan, his mother is part of the package deal. In another year your boyfriend will be legally an adult and able to decide if he wants to stay at home taking care of his mother, or leave to pursue his education or go to work. From your description, the family dynamics do not appear to be healthy. But if you’re smart, you will not involve yourself in them. A girl who competes with her boyfriend’s mother rarely wins that battle, so remember that. DEAR ABBY: I’m 14 and a ballet dancer, although I just started dancing seriously at 12. I have been in some shows and my teacher has started me on pointe work. It has become my dream to dance professionally. When I confi ded it to my mother, she told me it would be impossible. I take two classes a week, but I will be taking more -- possibly fi ve -- this year. Should I continue with my

dream or pursue something else? I know it’s a tough profession to work in, but it is what I love. -- DANCING FOR JOY IN SAN DIEGO DEAR DANCING FOR JOY: A career in dance requires strength, determination, discipline and sacrifi ce. These are all traits that will serve you well regardless of what profession you decide to pursue when you’re older. The person you should ask this question of is your ballet teacher, who is better able to evaluate your talent than I can at a distance. But I urge you to stick with dance as long as it interests you. Even if you don’t eventually become a performer, you could become a choreographer, a teacher or find a rewarding career in some other capacity with a dance company. Now is not the time to give up on this dream. DEAR ABBY: My fi ance is an amazing man and I’m lucky to have him, but because he’s in the military I don’t see him very often. I recently met a guy in one of my college classes who has made it clear that he’s attracted to me. I can’t help but feel the same about him. He often asks me to study and hang out with him. Am I being disloyal if I innocently study or hang out with this guy without telling my fiance? -- FRIENDLY FIANCEE IN COLORADO DEAR FIANCEE: You say the attraction between you and your classmate is mutual. If you start hanging out with him without telling your fiance, then the relationship ISN’T innocent. If you can’t handle the separations, then you don’t have what it takes to be a military wife. So do both of you a favor and end the engagement.

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

Annual Valentine’s Auction is Feb. 9 I have good news and bad news — depending on how you feel about cold and snow. Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow which I’m told means six more weeks of winter. Good or bad, it hasn’t been much of a winter so far so when you think about it, we’re really ahead of the game. As for me, I don’t usually start thinking about spring till mid March. Besides, I hope to get one or two more “snow days” in before then. Don’t forget our annual Valentine’s Auction is taking place this Thursday, Feb. 9 at the Gibson Center. The live auction will include a week long trip through RCI and another through Interval International — anywhere in the world! We have also been most fortunate to receive some wonderful donations from Zeb’s, R & R Woodworkers, our local ski areas as well as some very generous local artists. The cost is still $10 per person which includes a wonderful hors d’oeuvres buffet, a silent auction loaded with wonderful items, a live auction with even more great items, a cash bar and a really terrifi c time.

The Great Circle Foundation awards grant to the Kismet Rock Foundation Funds will help students learn climbing, life skills CONWAY – The Great Circle Foundation recently awarded a $15,000 grant to Kismet Rock Foundation to offset the costs of its summer program in 2012. Kismet Rock Foundation enhances the physical, intellectual and emotional development of children who lack access to opportunities such as the one Kismet offers by providing access to the immense value of a comprehensive and multi-dimensional education in technical climbing. Kismet Rock Foundation was selected because of its focus on providing a direct educational service to youth. “The generosity of the Great Circle Foundation will continue to allow Kismet students to have the opportunity to beneďŹ t from the technical and life skills that a climbing education can offer. We are delighted that the Great Circle Foundation has chosen to make Kismet Rock Foundation a philanthropic priority. Our warmest thanks to Great Circle for enabling children from low income families to

be a part of the Kismet family,â€? said Brian Post, Kismet Rock Foundation board chairperson. Kismet Rock Foundation emerged out of a desire of the director, Mike Jewell, to offer the same climbing instruction to economically disadvantaged children as he had given to families throughout his guiding career. In 1999, Mike asked a childhood friend, Stanley West, to ďŹ nd four children in southern New Jersey and bring them to New Hampshire for one week of technical climbing instruction. This initial project was accomplished with little money and with much effort on the part of some very kind and generous people. The project received media attention and Mike started Kismet the following year. Kismet was born in 2000, with the support of many friends and organizations. Kismet’s summer season will launch in July 2012. To learn more about Kismet visit

Caring for houseplants throughout the winter

Many of us have houseplants or prized plants that we like to overwinter in our homes. However, keeping plants healthy indoors thru the winter can be a diffi cult task unless provided with the ideal environment, like a greenhouse. Most of us however don’t have a greenhouse and may not even have a good south facing window. Nevertheless, there are techniques to keep plants healthy and thriving during the winter. There are several reasons why keeping plants healthy during the winter may be diffi cult. Day length, light intensity, and humidity are the three major environmental differences. Many plants are effected by day length and may be triggered to go dormant, stop growing, or grow extremely slowly; thus requiring different management then would be expected under the long days of summer. Light intensity is another factor that affects plant growth in the winter. During the winter at northern latitudes light intensity is greatly reduced. Most fl owering plants require a high intensity of light and during the winter this is just not available. For those plants needing long days and good light intensity fi nding a sunny window will help but will unlikely fulfi ll the plant’s needs. Artifi cial lighting can be used to supplement, cool white fluorescent bulbs are a good choice for providing supplemental light. Light bulbs should be placed 6 – 12 inches from the plant and should be on for 12-16 hours a day. Putting the light on a timer greatly helps and eliminates one thing to remember. Humidity is another environmental factor that is drastically different in the winter versus other times of the year. The cold air in the winter has little capacity to hold moisture and when that air is heated up as it is in most houses the relative humidity drops. The extreme dry air is unsuitable for many houseplants since most are tropical plants which are adapted to growing in high humidity year round. To create a more humid environment you can group plants closely together or put the plants in a tray fi lled with gravel and water, keep the water level below the top of the gravel so that the potted planted cannot absorb water from the tray, a humidifier will also work. see PLANTS page 39

The Exploring Reality video series at Conway Public Library starts Feb. 7 CONWAY — There is a revolution going on in science, a new perspective supported by research that looks beyond the mainstream materialist view of reality. This three-part video series explores three aspects of the new paradigm. The fi rst video on Tuesday, Feb. 7, “Something Unknown... Is Doing I Don’t Know What,” takes the viewer on a spiritual journey into the science behind psychic phenomena. Grounded in a century’s worth of data from psychical research and situated in the entangled realms of quantum theory, this movie will expand your horizons and broaden your worldview. The second video on Feb. 14 is “The Living Matrix,” is a provocative film about healing and the nature of

human health. It explores groundbreaking research across Europe and the U.S. by pioneering scientists and leaders in alternative medicine, that reveal a whole new model for understanding and promoting wellness. On Feb. 21 the video is “The Quantum Activist,” a perspective of modern physics that challenges us to rethink our very notions of existence and reality, and offers a bridge between science and spirituality based on the primacy of consciousness. This video series will be shown on consecutive Tuesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. beginning Feb. 7 at the Conway Public Library. Admission is free. For more information visit

PLANTS from page 38

short days plants tend to use far less water than at other times of the year. Be careful to water only when needed, this varies from species to species but for the most part plants should be watered when the pot feels light to pick up or soil feels dry to the touch. Water the plant to its full capacity and make sure not to allow it to sit in a tray that retains water. Over-watering makes plants susceptible to root rot, which will eventually kill the plant. One symptom of root rot is a wilting plant even though the soil is moist. If this happens, pop the plant out of the pot as carefully as possible and check the roots. Roots should look healthy and white, if they are brown or black and fall apart easily this is a sign of root rot. Under watering is rarely a problem but can occasionally occur when plants are left in extremely warm windows or if placed in front of a hot air vent. Over fertilizing, like over watering, is also a common problem, with the slow growth during winter the plant has little need to be fertilized some plants are best not fertilized at all during the winter.

To fi nd the best locations in your house for keeping plants healthy during the winter there a few factors to keep in mind. Most houseplants have a low tolerance level to drafts and some species can actually suffer injury when temperatures are below 50F. Avoiding areas that are extremely drafty is key; avoid areas near doorways that open to the outside or drafty doors and windows. If your windows get frosted on the inside on cold nights you can assume that right up close to the window is not appropriate, never have a plant so close to a window that the foliage is pressed against the window. Hot air can also be an issue so avoid placing plants in direct line of hot air vents or next to radiators, the constant blowing of warm air can cause significant water loss thru transpiration. A sunny window is best during the winter even for foliage plants just remember to move low light loving plants before the spring when days get longer and the light more intense. Watering of plants during the winter can be tough to evaluate, and one of the most common problems is over-watering. Because of the low light levels and

TOWN OF MADISON PUBLIC NOTICE of 2012 Budget Hearing The Selectmen & Advisory Budget Committee will hold a Public Budget Hearing for public input on the proposed 2012 Budget and Warrant Articles on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 at 7PM in the James Noyes Memorial Hall at the Madison Elementary School.

Effingham Town Column

Henry Spencer 539-4964

Town to vote on selling ambulance In their efforts to inform and garner public feeling prior to placing any question on this year’s ballot the selectmen held a public meeting on plans for the town’s existing ambulance. About eight residents braved a bit of winter weather to attend. The question on the table was whether or not the town should keep or sell the ambulance. In 2007 town’s people voted to prohibit the ambulance being used to actually transport residents in medical need to area hospitals; the reasons being: the town’s contract with Medstar ambulance service for response and transport, the feeling of those voting that having the town’s ambulance out of town on a call would leave residents without suffi cient fi rst response coverage and if we are paying a professional service to transport why not use it. This desire of the voters to keep the vehicle in town as a first responder vehicle exclusively in many ways makes the owning and maintenance of the ambulance appear questionable. The last time the ambulance actually transported a resident was Dec. 1, 2010. The question put forward by both the Effi ngham Fire and Rescue Chief Randy Burbank and the selectmen asks why own an ambulance if you are not going to use it to transport, and add to the above facts: Effi ngham has been unable to maintain suffi ciently educated and licensed rescue personnel on the rolls to legally man the ambulance. To “legally” transport patients there must be both one licensed fi rst responder and one EMT Basic on board during the trip. Effi ngham has one EMT Basic on the rolls and currently has four people taking the first responder course, but even after

these members become licensed there is never any guaranteed that any of them will be in town to respond to a call for transport at any given moment. This problem of licensed staffi ng is not something particular to Effingham but is a problem faced by almost all small towns: sometimes you have suffi cient personnel and sometimes you don’t, but to transport you must have the qualified folks on board during the trip. Currently the ambulance has 22,000 miles on the clock and has an estimated resale value of about $65,000. It should be noted that this fi gure is an estimate formed through consideration rather than any attempt to get a bid for the vehicle. Apparently ambulances have a short shelf life. If the town sells the vehicle there is a lot of town-owned equipment on board that will stay in town. There has been some talk about using the monies derived from the sale to purchase a vehicle that would offer a better opportunity to actually benefi t residents, but the selectmen made very clear that absolutely no decision has been made about this yet. The issue is solely to sell or not to sell. You will be able to vote your preference in March. Over the last year our current transport service has relocated its operational base thus cutting many minutes off the time it takes to reach points in Effi ngham and our department is putting signifi cant effort into ensuring that we have fi rst responders in town who can get to your home or the accident site in good time. One problem with Effingham is its location; it is geographically as far from a hospital as you can get. Move to any adjacent town and you are moving closer to a hospital. But, that’s life in the country.

Jason K. Waterhouse Jason K. Waterhouse, 51, passed away peacefully on January 25, 2012, after a long illness. He was born Aug. 10, 1960 in North Conway and was a lifelong resident of Conway. Before his illness became too much for him to work he was a wellknown builder in the valley, which he always took great pride in. He was a kind-hearted person who loved being around friends and family. Jason was a very giving person who would help anyone if he could. He was a great friend and even better father who loved his children and would do anything for them. Jason was well known for his sense of humor and his quick wit. He could always get a room full of people laughing and would keep them laughing. Jason will be deeply missed by all that knew him. PLANTS from page 39

Signs of over fertilizing include salt like residues on the soil surface or browning or burning of the outer leaf margins on foliage. Insect pests can also show up on houseplants during the winter, the most common pest to see are spidermites, mealybugs and scales. Spidermites thrive in hot dry situations which are common indoors during the winter. These tiny mites are hard to see with the naked eye; however, the symptoms they cause are not and include stippling or silvering of foliage. Mealybugs and scales can often be noticed by a sticky substance known as honeydew that they excrete; this sticky substance will usually be found on the floor, pot, or on the foli-

Upon further inspection cottony like white tufts will be found when you have mealybugs and if you have scale you will typically fi nd tiny brownish encrustations along leaf veins, stems and petioles. By early March, the days are getting signifi cantly longer and the light intensity getting stronger. Even though plants outside may still be buried deep in snow houseplants will start resuming more active growth and one can resume more normal fertilizing and watering routines.

Homeless! BY JASON ROBIE “Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.” — Jack Handey Perhaps it is age. My 40th birthday is in my rear view mirror now. But, I have been making a concerted effort to put myself in the shoes of the person I’m getting frustrated with (typically behind the wheel) and find a way to justify their actions. Of course I am, much like you, the best driver in the whole world. So often times it is a struggle to fi nd the rationale in other people’s actions. I’m confi dent we cannot truly know another man’s struggle until we have experienced that same thing. If you read along with us last week, I was in some sort of “imparting wisdom” mood and you got a little advice for not stressing out over everything. If you missed it, the abridged version is this: Just try and relax a little. As I sit Jason Robie here today, I am a mere weeks away from closing on my house and dealing with all that goes along with selling a home and finding a new place to hang my hat. I can’t help but think how valuable this experience would be for anyone working as a professional in real estate. The same could be said for many of the transactions involving a signifi cant change to your life. Of course the passing of a loved one is at the top of the list for stressful life events, but housing/moving is No. 5 on a number of surveys I found. Large monetary events always seem to be at the top of the list, and buying or selling a house along with the stress of moving can create quite a bit of tension. Standing at the jewelry counter and choosing an engagement ring for the love of your life involves more than just a shiny chunk of metal. A quality salesperson knows this and can ease the buyer through the process with compassion and education. If the person behind the counter were of the mindset that they were simply selling a piece of jewelry and were anxious to move on to the next patron, the experience would be sullied at best. In real estate, the amount of money involved and the social and environmental ramifi cations that come along with uprooting your home and your life is greatly multiplied. In the Mount Washington Valley, like most beautiful resort towns, many of our homes are merely toys. Mountain lovers and those who frequent the area for the many reasons we love it here, buy and sell homes as a place to vacation and escape the noise of the bigger cities. These folks are a different type of client and the process does not hold as much gravity as that of the year-round resident uprooting their life and moving on. As the home seller prepares for closing, there is always a question about the process. Since a little hiccup could delay closing for a week or more, the seller has to juggle movers, temporary housing, storage units, cleaners, pets, kids, schooling and even their jobs. This is enough of a headache when they are simply moving across town, but what if the move is across the state or even the country?

with friends for a while” would turn anyone’s stomach! Some of the best real estate agents, car dealers, builders and in general “sales people” are those who have been trained in consultative sales. We are all involved in sales in one form or another. Whether “selling” your kids on the idea of cleaning their rooms or selling an actual product to a consumer, the idea of matching someone’s need with a solution is where the magic happens. Gone are the days of “What do I have to do to put you in this car today?" Or at least, I hope they are. Having just been through the process of buying a truck, it was refreshing to have been approached in a consultative way. The dealer asked me what I was looking for, what my budget was and proceeded to work towards that end. Never once did he try and sway me in a direction that I did not want to be taken. He was also very informative and educated me on some of the newer technologies available. I truly felt as though he were looking out for my best interests. With that kind of treatment, I was happy to work with his dealership and will recommend them to anyone looking for a used vehicle. With the car dealer, real estate agent and any “broker” of a signifi cant purchase event in your life, I would encourage you to work with those who have either walked in your shoes or have enough experience in the industry to empathize with the process you are going through. I don’t believe you have to have bought or sold your own home to be a good real estate agent. But I do feel you should truly understand the process and offer your consultation, not just a dotted line. Jason Robie is a staff writer for Badger Realty in North Conway.

I write a column for the White Mountain Board of Realtors whenever time allows. My intentions are always good, but I try not to be just a cheerleader for the real estate industry, but rather find stories that are more informative than just hype. I receive six to 10 e-mail newsletters every day from services that have something to do with real estate. Some are organizations like the National Association of Realtors or the New Hampshire Association of Realtors. Other sources are lending institutions, banks, title companies, blogs, social media and a host of others. I read as many as I can without compromising the time I need to process my own real estate transactions. In one week, I can see positive or negative stories about the health of

the real estate industry. Most of what I see has been copied and rewritten from stories that originate from the National Association of Realtors. The following is a blurb from National Association of Realtors' president Mo Veissi. “I’m a guarded optimist, but it doesn’t take an optimist to see positive signs for housing in America. Several independent surveys last year showed that, despite five diffi cult years in which many owners lost value, Americans still want to own a home. In December, there were reported increases in pending home sales, existing-home sales, and housing starts. My guarded optimism tells me the beginning of a bona fi de recovery is under way.

distressed housing that’s on the market or waiting to be sold over the next 24 to 36 months. Although I’m an optimist, I’m also a realist who sells real estate in one of the hardest-hit markets in the country, Miami. But I can tell you this: In 2007, most pundits were saying Miami would take a decade or more to right itself. Today, National Association of Realtors is predicting double-digit appreciation for Miami in 2012. How about that! "Look, I know one thing about real estate: It has never been a quick answer to wealth. Patience and perseverance make real estate a long-term, but enormously able, wealth builder and portfolio staple." *** The following is also an excerpt from a National Association of Realtors' article concerning Obama’s plan to help current homeowners. In his State of the Union address, President Obama laid out a blueprint for an 'America built to last,' calling for action to help responsible borrowers and support a housing market recovery. While the government cannot fi x the housing market on its own, the president believes that responsible homeowners should not have to sit and wait for the market to hit bottom to get relief when there are measures at hand that can make a meaningful difference, including allowing these homeowners to save thousands of dollars by refinancing at today’s low interest rates. That’s why the president is putting forward a plan that uses the broad range of tools to help homeowners, supporting middleclass families and the economy. Key aspects of the president’s plan Broad-based refi nancing to help responsible borrowers save an average of $3,000 per year: The president’s plan will provide borrowers who

This plan, which is paid for by a fi nancial fee so that it does not add a dime to the deficit, will: * Provide access to refi nancing for all non-GSE borrowers who are current on their payments and meet a set of simple criteria. * Streamline the refi nancing process for all GSE borrowers who are current on their loans. * Give borrowers the chance to rebuild equity through refinancing. Homeowner Bill of Rights: The president is putting forward a single set of standards to make sure borrowers and lenders play by the same rules, including: * Access to a simple mortgage disclosure form, so borrowers understand the loans they are taking out. * Full disclosure of fees and penalties. * Guidelines to prevent confl icts of interest that end up hurting homeowners. * Support to keep responsible families in their homes and out of foreclosure. * Protection for families against inappropriate

foreclosure, including right of appeal. First pilot sale to transition foreclosed property into rental housing to help stabilize neighborhoods and improve home prices: The FHFA, in conjunction with Treasury and HUD, is announcing a pilot sale of foreclosed properties to be transitioned into rental housing. Moving the market to provide a full year of forbearance for borrowers looking for work: Following the administration’s lead, major banks and the GSEs are now providing up to 12 months of forbearance to unemployed borrowers. Pursuing a joint investigation into mortgage origination and servicing abuses: This effort marshals new resources to investigate misconduct that contributed to the fi nancial crisis under the leadership of federal and state co-chairs. Rehabilitating neighborhoods and reducing foreclosures: In addition to the steps outlined above, the Administration is expanding eligibility for HAMP to reduce additional foreclosures, increasing incentives for modifications that help borrowers rebuild equity, and is proposing to put people back to work rehabilitating neighborhoods through Project Rebuild. *** I really do hope that these strategies impact the housing market in this country, but until I see homes flying off the shelves in the Mount Washington Valley, I will believe it when I see it. Winter is generally a slower time for real estate in the north country, but it is a great time to take advantage of the opportunities that are out there at the present time. Until next time, have a great weekend. Karl Seibel is a Realtor for Coldwell Banker Wright Realty in Conway and communications chair for the White Mountain Board of Realtors.

Snacking on some Super Bowl trivia BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

The Super Bowl should be a national holiday — people are sure treating the Super Sunday that way. It's a day of food; a day to get together with friends and family; a day to check out the newest commercials; and a day to watch football. A record number of people — 151.6 million — are projected to watch at least a part of the game. Football almost gets overshadowed in this spectacle. More people may be concerned about Madonna's nerves over her halftime performance than whether

Rob Gronkowski's ankle will hold up for an entire game. The game kicks off at 6:30 p.m. on NBC (WCSH Channel 6). NBC's pre-game show starts at noon, yes, six plus hours of more hype. It's projected $10.1 billion, or an average of $59.33 per consumer will be spent on Super Bowl Sunday. Estimated spending in the United States on Super Bowl-related merchandise, apparel and snacks is up from $8.9 billion, or $52.63 per consumer, last year, according to the Retail Advertising and Marketing Association. The second-largest food consumption day in the U.S. is Super Bowl

What we eat during the game: 30 percent: Dips and spreads. 22 percent: Chicken wings. 17 percent: Pizza. 14 percent: Chips and salty snacks; including 4,000 tons of popcorn and 14,500 tons of chips. 9 percent: Burgers, hot dogs and brats. Other Super Bowl food facts and numbers to feast on: • 325.5 million: gallons of beer drunk. • 1,200 calories: amount the average Super Bowl watcher will consume while snacking. • The most popular take-out and delivery items on Super Bowl Sunday are pizza, chicken wings, and sandwiches. • 28 million: pounds of potato chips eaten worldwide. • 1 billion: number of chicken wings eaten. • 8 million pounds of guacamole is consumed on Super Bowl Sunday. • 69.6 million pounds of avocados, enough to cover Cowboys Stadium field in almost 27 feet of avocados. Most are used to make the 8 million pounds of guacamole consumed, according to the Hass Avocado Board. • Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest winter grilling day of the year. • 7 million: number of U.S. employees estimated not to show up to work on the Monday. • Approximately 54 percent of Americans will consume coffee the morning following Super Bowl Sunday. • According to 7-Eleven stores, there is a 20 percent increase in the sale of antacids on the day after Super Bowl.
