OSSIPEE — The victim in the William Ramsey attempted-murder court case testiﬁ ed she thought her boyfriend was going to gag her to death with a curling iron on a December night in 2010. The trial opened in Carroll County Superior Court on Friday afternoon. The victim resumes her testi-
mony on Tuesday morning. Ramsey, 41, of Conway, is also charged with kidnapping, criminal threatening, second-degree assault and reckless conduct.

Kennett High threat 'nothing more than a rumor' BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — School administrators and police ofﬁcials were on high alert last week
after a threat rumor began circulating at Kennett High School. The rumor morphed into several different versions, ofﬁ cials said, warning of possible harm to people attending school last Friday.
A joint police and school investigation determined the threat was not credible by Thursday, however, and the school posted see THREAT page 9

‘We the People’ loses appeal around the world WASHINGTON — The Constitution has seen better days. Sure, it is the nation’s founding document and sacred text. And it is the oldest written constitution still in force anywhere in the world. But its inﬂuence is waning. In 1987, on the Constitution’s bicentennial, Time magazine calculated that “of the 170 countries that exist today, more than 160 have written charters modeled directly or indirectly on the U.S. version.” A quarter-century later, the picture looks very different. “The U.S. Constitution appears to be losing its appeal as a model for constitutional drafters elsewhere,” according to a new study by David S. Law of Washington University in St. Louis and Mila Versteeg of the University of Virginia. “Among the world’s democracies,” Law and Versteeg concluded, “constitutional similarity to the United States has clearly gone into free fall. Over the 1960s and 1970s, democratic constitutions as a whole became more similar to the U.S. Constitution, only to reverse course in the 1980s and 1990s.
The U. S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself.” — Benjamin Franklin

Giants beat Patriots in ﬁnal rally INDIANAPOLIS — Four years ago, the Giants were the charming underdogs who took the New England Patriots’ perfect season and made it imperfect. This season, however, having survived summer injuries and defections, a fourgame losing streak, calls for the coach’s job and six fourth-quarter comebacks, the Giants arrived at their Super Bowl rematch with the Patriots as something that seemed more formidable: a team prepared to face a deﬁcit and overcome it.
They did it again Sunday night. Just as they did four years ago, the Giants prevailed in the ﬁ nal minute against the Patriots, beating New England, 21-17 and giving the franchise its fourth Super Bowl championship — one more than the Patriots — and its second in four years over this generation’s greatest coach-quarterback combination, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. The Giants are an improbable champion in an improbable season, one that nearly
U.S. Embassy in Syria closes as violence flares BEIRUT, Lebanon — The United States closed its embassy in Syria on Monday and withdrew all staff members amid escalating mayhem in what American ofﬁ cials called the Syrian government’s unbridled repression of an 11-month-old uprising that has become the bloodiest conﬂ ict in the Arab revolts. The confrontation in Syria has turned even more violent and more unpredictable, while diplomatic efforts have largely collapsed, save for a Russian delegation visiting Damascus on
Tuesday. Both the Syrian government and its opposition have signaled that each believes the grinding conﬂict will only be resolved through force of arms. For weeks, Western embassies have reduced their staffs, and on Monday, Britain also recalled its ambassador for consultations. Echoing a cascade of diplomatic invective, the British foreign secretary, William Hague, described the mounting violence as yet more evidence that President Bashar al-Assad had no option but to surrender power.
did not begin because of a lockout, and ended with their becoming the ﬁ rst 9-7 team in N.F.L. history to lift the Lombardi Trophy. For the Patriots, who were 13-3 in the regular season, it was another bitter loss, a devastating repeat of the defeat that ended their undefeated 2007 season. They have won three titles, but none since the 2004 season, casting their dynasty into the distance while the Giants are the only repeat champions of the last ﬁve years.
Ruling party in Mexico picks woman as candidate MEXICO CITY — The race to pick Mexico’s next president took a historic turn Sunday night, with the ruling party picking a woman, the ﬁrst from a major party, as its candidate to hold off a strong push from the largest opposition party to reclaim the post it had held for more than seven decades. The candidate, Joseﬁna Vázquez Mota, triumphed over two others in the primary of the conservative National Action Party, including a former cabinet minister who was said to be the ﬁrst choice of President Felipe Calderón, who by law cannot seek a second six-year term. The stage is now set for the July 1 contest, which will be carried out in tumultuous times with a war against drug cartels that has cost more than 47,000 lives since 2006, worries that organized crime will interfere with the election and signs the country’s relatively stable economy may be slowing.

Marlborough Selectmen violated right-to-know law BY MEGHAN PIERCE THE UNION LEADER
MARLBOROUGH — A selectman says the board never intentionally violated the right-to-know law, even though Cheshire County Superior Court Judge Phillip P. Mangones cited nine violations in a recent decision. John Northcott said board members are taking measures to avoid such violations in the future. “There’s no question, yeah, we’ve been too casual and that sort of thing,” Northcott said. Mangones pointed to improperly posted meetings that included a discussion and decision to study regional resources, unlawful meetings via email and the nondisclosure of minutes or the release of only partial minutes. “Nothing was done to be evasive or undercover,” Northcott said. “Our intentions were never to deceive, but our actions were wrong and (the judge) cited those each as a violation.” In the petition ﬁ led Nov. 23, 2011, residents Loretta Simonds and Robert Cameron alleged board members Northcott, Lawrence Robinson and Gina Paight communicated outside of meetings, held meetings without public notice, refused the petitioners access to public records and altered public records. Along with communicating through email the petitioners claimed the Select Board attended a Jan. 5 and a Jan. 20, multi-town meeting without notiﬁcation or documentation. “These meetings were attended by the town selectmen of Dublin, Harrisville, Marlborough and Nelson to consider the possible consolidation of departments of the four towns,” the petition said. “These were public meetings as deﬁ ned in RSA 91-A:2 I. The
Marlborough board did not give public notice of these meetings as is required in RSA 91-A:2 II, nor were minutes taken as required by RSA 91-A:4. Conﬁrmed knowledge of these meeting was gained through public information published by other towns.” According to Nelson town meeting minutes, the four towns agreed to raise a warrant article of $6,000 each to fund an exploratory study of the consolidation of town department resources, the petition says. Last week, Mangones released his decision in which he found that Cameron and Simonds assertions were correct. “Petitioners are correct that the decisions to hire the consultant and to have the consultant gather initial information were made outside of a properly held meeting with notice and minutes. “In other words, the decision creating the necessity for the Board to vote to “withdraw from the project” were made outside of the open meeting process required by RSA 91-A:2, I. The socalled four-town meetings constituted meetings under the provision of RSA chapter 91-A,” he wrote. Cameron and Simonds said they couldn’t be happier about their victory in court, but said selectmen should be taking the injunctions more seriously. “We’re happy, but they seem to misconstrue what happened here,” Cameron said. “The leopards don’t change their spots,” Simonds said. “Maybe for a short while we’ll see some changes, and then they’ll go right back to it.” Mangones also called the board out for “obviating the spirit of the RightTo-Know law” by holding an unlawful electronic meeting in which a previous meeting’s minutes were edited.

Turn the Lights On Pun intended, but the way to shed some light on the ongoing row over street lighting in North Conway Village and the strip is to ﬁrst turn the lights on. With more twists and turns than a Dan Brown 1,000-pager, here’s the short-version of a long saga that involves public safety, public money, grant money, utilities, politics, aesthetics, and banners and wreaths. Five years or so ago when Route 16 was rebuilt, the town convinced the state to install decorative light ﬁ xtures on the strip and in the North Conway Village, which replaced the traditional lights, called cobra-heads. These are still used on side streets and on Route 16 north of North Conway Village. It’s been a few years since the town decided to save money by turning off every other street light in town everywhere except the strip, which is completely dark. The thinking there is spillover light from businesses provides enough illumination. Despite two selectmen’s opinions the lights in the village look “hideous,” most view the ﬁxtures, which are mounted low on the phone poles, as quaint, and give off a more intimate feel than standard highway lights. One problem with the new ﬁxtures, however, is they do not easily accommodate banners and wreaths. The general approach on the table to improve public safety without adding to the electric bill is to switch to high efﬁ ciency LED lights. Seems simple enough except it’s not as easy as changing light bulbs; all the ﬁxtures would have to be replaced. The story picks up speed when chamber executive director Janice Crawford confers with selectmen. Crawford also represents the MWV Preservation Association, which spent most of a $1 million federal grant on beautifying the village, but still has a few hundred thousand dollars left. (The money cannot be used for operating expenses like light bills or snow plowing.) After lots of hand-wringing and brainstorming, the basic options have come to this. Option 1: New Hampshire Electric Cooperative at no cost will replace all the decorative ﬁxtures with LED cobra-lights, which would improve illumination and presumably not increase the town’s electric bill. Option 2: Replace the existing decorative lighting with new LED decorative lighting. The co-op won’t pay for that work, estimated at $70,000, but the MWV Preservation Association might. Option 1 is attractive because the co-op will replace the ﬁxtures at no cost to the town, and the new cobra-lights, which are mounted high on the poles, will accommodate banners and wreaths. The problem is not only does this option eliminate the decorative ﬁxtures, but LEDs give off a cold-looking light, which may give the village a look of a parking lot.

Option 2, of course, is costly and new decorative LED ﬁxtures still won’t accommodate banners and wreaths. As a start, we suggest the town simply turn the lights on, as turning them off in the most pedestrian-congested areas in town is bad policy for a tourist town and a lawsuit waiting to happen. Since this issue has gone public, many people have reported near misses with hitting pedestrians. And if the lights on the strip and in the village, which represent only a small portion of an estimated $60,000 the town saves in electricity, are on, we think the whole discussion will go
away. Once the safety issue is solved with more light, it will seem like a waste to replace perfectly good, new decorating light ﬁ xtures that our tax dollars already paid for. As far as banners and wreaths, the decorative ﬁ xtures were chosen knowing they would hang too low to accommodate them. The committee which chose the ﬁ xtures back when the Route 16 was rebuilt, called the Citizens Design Review Committee, and made up of locals, suggested mounting brackets on the inside of the telephone poles so banners and wreaths would hang over the sidewalks. That may not be a solution everyone likes, but is logical. Turn the lights on. It’s a good place to start.
THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, February 7, 2012— Page 7
How important do you think downtown improvements are in Fryeburg, and what ideas do you have for paying for them? There were 32 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “How important do you think downtown improvements are in Fryeburg, and what ideas do you have for paying for them?” I think the town of Fryeburg should concentrate on ﬁ nding some kind of employment for the people in the area and not worry about how downtown looks. We’ve got to keep the people and the taxes in the state of Maine. Give employers a break so they’ll stay in Fryeburg so people won’t have to cross over into New Hampshire for their work. I think that the improvements to downtown Fryeburg are very much needed. I don’t think it should be called a slum or a blight. However, I’m not sure how to pay for it but I hope that they do get it done. First off, I think the people that want to do all these improvements, let them pay for it. I always get the biggest kick out of these people who say it’s not going to cost us anything; it’s just the taxpayers’ dollars. You know, I’m sorry, that’s my money and your money. And also, if you want to take a look at what this great money has done for these small villages, drive through Chocorua Village in New Hampshire and look how we wasted a million dollars. We were told we were going to get a park and it ended up a sediment pond and it ruined our village. Just take a look sometime. I think Fryeburg deﬁ nitely needs to take a look at their downtown. They’ve got dilapidated buildings; they have a lot of vacant lots, vacant businesses, the sidewalks are horrible. And one of the ﬁrst things you see is that horrible house on Portland Street that has all that trash piled to the roof of all the buildings. It has that giant horrible dumpster in the front yard, they’ve put an outside fence to block more trash units. It’s horrible. I think the people of Fryeburg need to take a closer look at their town; they need to do something about it. I think the people of Fryeburg should be embarrassed for not approving a beautiﬁ cation grant. And I think the reason they voted it down is they are too prideful to admit that their town center has been neglected and other than a few good restaurants it’s not really a good place to go anymore. So, I just don’t understand how they could turn away that money. This is Chuck, a Fryeburg taxpayer. I do not ﬁ nd any downtown improvements are necessary and certainly, a bike path, a few plants and a sidewalk patch does not qualify as ﬁ xing it up. It does nothing to ﬁ x the buildings. This was voted down by the Fryeburg citizens. It is a dead issue. Unlike the Conways —where no doesn’t mean no, it means we’ll try again — this should be considered a dead issue — somebody’s fantasy. I think it’s well just the way it is. People have spent a lot of money to get it where it is now. And as it goes it’s getting better and better. If you’re looking for slums there are other places in town. This is Karen from Fryeburg. I think it’s a very important thing about the downtown improvements, but the only improvement I would like to see is different street lighting — doing away with those glaring orange ones and replacing them blueish LED illumina-
tion. As far as the funding, I don’t know where it would come from. As far as the Fryeburg improvement, take the old NAPA building and make it into a town park and the building next to it, use it for an information center and ﬂea market. I’m calling from North Conway and I read about Fryeburg turning down that grant application. North Conway got a lot of grant money, I don’t know why Fryeburg doesn’t get grant money too; they need it. I live in North Conway but I drive through Fryeburg and I think it looks pretty grungy. I think it was a big mistake to turn down that $150,000. Fryeburg is a nice town the way it is, which is why folks have moved there. Why would you want to make it look like the slum of Conway? They used to have a beautiful town here in Conway, but they’ve ruined it by putting in all the curbs and sidewalks so we can trip over them in the dark. They have made our streets narrow when there used to be wide ones. They’ve added the NorthSouth Alley which is a disgrace. We have many, many friends who won’t even visit us here in North Conway anymore because it is a slum, so why would you want to do this to beautiful Fryeburg? Why do we let the federal government take our money and then have them give it back to us with restrictions? We are dumb to let them take it in the ﬁ rst place. And why would you want to lie to get the money back? What are we teaching our children? Lying is OK to get something? Many people are talking about a revolution so we won’t have to be concerned about our town leaders dying and our federal leaders doing the same. It’s sad because we always end up with a war because we never learn from the Bible or history. Don’t make beautiful Fryeburg a slum. I can’t believe they turned that money down; it’s just insane. The only reason to go to Fryeburg is for the fair and the restaurants. It’s small-minded, small town pride if you ask me. This is Dave in Fryeburg. I feel that the improvements they’d like to do to the downtown right now are not very important. The area does not have the money to pay for these improvements and these improvements and the proposed improvements will take away parking spaces that are desperately needed for the businesses that are already operating — that’s one of the biggest handicaps to that area is lack of parking. While the green space they’re proposing would look very nice it’s also going to cost a lot of money to maintain that in summertime with mowing and keeping the grass, etc. And it’s also going to be a hindrance in the winter time to snow removal. I think they should leave the Main Street and the businesses the way it is and appreciate the businesses that are there, because if you look at what businesses have moved around town in the last few years, most of the businesses that have relocated outside the center of town have gone to the outskirts of town where they have much better parking. Fryeburg? I never heard of it. Where is it? I think that the town of Fryeburg, Maine should write a nice letter to The Conway Daily Sun to thank them
for alerting the citizens of Fryeburg to just exactly what was being planned. To have to commit fraud to get some of your own money back in the form of a grant makes absolutely no sense, especially in economic times like we are having. Let the citizens keep up their own property and the town repair sidewalks as they are able to. Any money that Washington, D.C. has for these purposes should be used to lower the scary national debt. Although I am not a native here, I have lived in the Valley for a very long time. A number of years ago, Lewiston Maine beautiﬁ ed Lisbon Street with wider sidewalks and very little parking and it killed the downtown. People did not want to park a block away and walk downtown. You will see it is practically a ghost town. The parking spaces in Fryeburg, would have been reduced from 20-something to 13 parallel parking spaces with no other parking lot even suggested. It would certainly have put some of the businesses out of business. Where did North Conway get the $170,000 for sidewalks and improvements? Did they have to declare that area as a slum district? Just wondering. I think the most important thing that Fryeburg can do for its downtown improvements is to purchase the vacant lot that once had the vacant lot that once had the NAPA building at the intersection in Fryeburg and turn that into green space. I think that should be done quickly before a chain like Dunkin’ Donuts ends up in that space. It’s a beautiful view of the intervale and that opportunity should not be missed. I think if the town is not going to support applying for a grant to clean up the downtown, they should look at a private funding campaign, perhaps with people sponsoring a square for the concrete sidewalk and higher levels of donation for granite curbing, street lighting, etc. Rachel Damon Andrews, who I know spoke out forcefully against the grant, I would nominate her to lead a private fund-raising effort, because event though she spoke out against the grant, she clearly had a good vision of what the town used to be like and she seemed to be passionate about wanting to see it transformed. So, I would nominate Rachel to lead a private fund-raising effort and I think there are a lot of people — myself among them — who would be willing to help her do that. I think she would be great. This is Kimberly Clarke from Fryeburg. The reason it’s called Fryeburg is because the only thing to do on Friday nights is go out and get fried. This is from Rick Eastman, selectman and member of the planning group. The focus of the group from the start was to look at what infrastructure changes could be made in the downtown area to better enhance business opportunity and hopefully get more people to stop on their way through town and visit, shop, eat and generally enjoy the area we call home. I see the federal and state governments not spending money to ﬁ x and repair their infrastructure until it is too late and very expensive. We felt that it was time to start and repair areas that were identiﬁ ed as problems as far as safety, drainage, sidewalks and gen-
eral improvements to coincide with the state rebuild of Route 302 in the next two years. We have been two years so far into this process. Next the selectmen and town manager sought out funding sources. Most grants we looked at had matching fund attached to them, in most cases, a 25 percent match which we felt the town could not afford at this time. The grant that we looked at thru the state was a grant provided by the federal government that would provide $150,000 for a well-deﬁ ned area within our downtown. The unfortunate thing was what the grant was called, “Slum and Blight.” This was a name that no one was too excited about. Our hope was that people could get beyond the name and look at what we would gain in this project at basically no cost to the town. That was not the case, which is too bad, but we do understand. I just hope that this ﬁ rst road block does not stop the forward motion and good ideas that have come from this effort so far. I applaud the group for their time and effort. I also want to thank the people who came out on that stormy night and voiced their opinion. I also hope that as we move forward, these same people take time and bring forward more ideas as to how we can make this work for our community. I chaired both the Fryeburg Planning Board and Fryeburg Comprehensive Planning activities when Fryeburg last adopted the basic documents. I don’t recall ever having seen or heard anyone mention that there were issues with our downtown other than the observation that the buildings there lacked parking. Therefor the documents are silent on the subject. In order to compensate for the fact that the existing buildings in the downtown lacked parking, the ordinance that passed established a “village commercial” zone or district. Two of the features of this district or zone are to grandfathered zero-lotline setbacks and do not require off street parking. The hope, at the time, was that the existing buildings would be used by enterprises that didn’t require a lot of parking. It seemed, at the time, to be the only way to save our downtown since contemporary retail has both the need for lots of inventory space and parking and has to compete with tax-free retail in nearby New Hampshire. Both the plan and the ordinances that followed seem to have worked. This last issue, of the grant request, seems to have been driven by the availability of funding rather than real need. The town vote was heartening in that only the advocates seemed willing to compromise the principle, calling it something it wasn’t, in order to get hold of other people’s money. Fortunately, in my opinion, they were outnumbered two-to-one. The Fryeburg public works efforts have repaired village sidewalks and village roads, but to my knowledge have never proposed doing so on Main Street or had voters turn them down on real needs. Why was spending allocated elsewhere if Main Street needed so much attention? H. Ted Raymond, Fryeburg resident. see TELE-TALK page 8

This is akin to giving out your credit card number for a “free trial” to spend three hours on the phone trying to cancel it later. It’s probably not enough money for the process involved, let alone the stigma of folks reading “Fryeburg slum facing blight” in the papers. Sounds like a no win to me. $150,000 won’t get you much in the long run. How to fund it? Great question. Unless you can fund the whole project, you don’t. Corporate in-kind donations and sponsorships. Landlord tax breaks for beautiﬁcation. I think this was an excessive project, just to get some grant money for the town. I think the sidewalks are just ﬁne now. Is it a good idea to allow our ego to keep us from improving? Has anyone walked around in downtown Fryeburg recently? It’s not so pretty until you get to the high school. “Pride” is going to keep the downtown away from money that can improve it. Combine that with your auctions and bake sales and you’ve got something... If people in Fryeburg truly want to pass up the chance to get a $150,000 infrastructure grant, they are idiots. Brian Gillette said it best: “This is like if you put your house in a relative’s name so you can get welfare. While it may be legal, it is a little dishonorable. If it really is about pride then not only where was the pride when it got run down but where is the pride of self-reliance? Why do we have to prostitute ourselves to the federal taxpayer for $150,000. If it is that important, raise the revenue and budget the funds.” There seems to be different reasons to raise money — why can’t this be one of them, with suppers, auctions and other things? How many of the people in favor of the slum declaration/money fest are opposed to gummint spending? I support a smaller federal government. That starts with getting some of the money we send to Washington refunded back to us at the local level. Turning down a federal grant is just like taking your tax refund and mailing it back to Uncle Sam because “some-
one else might need it more.” Towns like Bath and Kennebunkport and Bridgton and Sanford and Norway and Naples and Parsonsﬁ eld and so many more have beneﬁted from this grant program. For people who say that $150,000 wasn’t worth it, that amount was step 2 in the grant process. Step 3 was a $500,000 grant that could have given or loaned money to the property owners themselves to make improvements to their buildings and would have expanded the public improvements the town could have made. That would have made a real difference. When was the last time you people walked the sidewalks in Fryeburg? You’re driving by in your cars and not seeing reality. Who is going to raise the money? Thought so, you are all too busy. Plenty of negative comments not understanding the complete facts. Get over your pride and leave your children and grandchildren something to be proud of, or in this case pass. Pass the blight on to them. It is funny how Fryeburg Fair maintains their buildings and grounds painting and up keeping year after year and Fryeburg Academy does the same. You people are so caught up in your own little world you have no idea that the town you love is falling down around you. Get out of your cars and walk! There are some lovely buildings like Oxford House, the Norway Bank, The new Spice and Grain store, the new gallery and studio ﬁ xed up by Jen Regan on the corner. But then there are a lot of vacant buildings too — more vacant than not, and some sorrylooking lots. One of the worst is the Elmwood Realty building. It should be condemned and knocked down — it is a real bad mark on the community. The Sun should take a picture of that leaning tower of pisa and put IT on the front cover next time! And what about the burned out crumbling concrete pad from the old NAPA building? And the old Pike Conway Dahl building next store to that — not to mention the vacant Emery’s market and so many more when you turn the corner on Oxford Street and head down Smith. The owners need help in marketing their properties, and improving the infrastructure will really do that. A guest came out of the Oxford House and actually asked me how long a walk it was to the center of town. I had to tell her, “We don’t have a center of town to walk to, I am afraid.” How about using some of the money that will probably be left over from “the winter that wasn’t” to ﬁ x the sidewalks on Main Street, Portland and Oxford streets.

a note the school’s website Thursday afternoon in an attempt to reassure parents and students there was no danger. “We understand that some of you have concerns regarding a rumored threat of school day disruption tomorrow,” the statement said. “We can assure you that we have checked every lead on this and found it to be just that – a rumor. We expect to have a safe and happy Patriot’s Day and look forward to seeing you all in your team attire tomorrow!” “It was a rumor that was going around the school,” Kennett High principal Neal Moylan said. “We found it to be nothing more than a rumor.” Moylan would not comment on the precise nature of the rumor, but he said it had made its way to students as well as staff. “There was a certain degree of angst among the kids,” he said. The school resource ofﬁ cer brought the issue to the attention of the Conway Police Department. “We take the report of threats to the the student body and the school very seriously,” police spokesman Lt. Chris Perley said. Ofﬁcers were able to ﬁ nd

attack she met Ramsey on a dating website called Plenty of Fish and that they had broken up and got back together several times. On the night of the attack, Dec. 13, 2010, the victim said she planned to have a relaxing evening with Ramsey and her dog at his West Side Road apartment in North Conway. At the time, she was getting over a cold and he offered to cook dinner for her. After dinner, she took a bath and changed into her pajamas. It was then a small argument got out of control. The victim indicated the argument was about Ramsey's plan to attend law school. Judge Steven Houran struck the testimony about Ramsey wanting to go back to school after Clayman made an objection and Boone withdrew the question. "I don't mean anybody did anything wrong, it's just a matter of what evidence is and is not admissible," said Houran to the jury and the victim. "The substance of the argument is not what you're here to decide. We're going to skip that over." For similar reasons, the defense cut
out who the rumors pointed to, and police spoke to the person allegedly responsible for the threat. “There was no credible threat,” Perley said. “No crimes were committed. No threats of crimes were made.” Neither police nor school ofﬁ cials would not comment on whether the person questioned was a current student or not, but according to Perley by the end of the investigation it was clear this was a misunderstanding, an instance where someone’s words were misinterpreted when taken out of context. The effort to reassure people, meanwhile, apparently worked. Moylan said attendance on Friday was about average, that the rumor did not result in lots of absences. On Monday both police and school ofﬁ cials were pleased with the outcome. People were vigilant, Perley said. They reported suspicions, which is what police want people to do. “That’s our job, to ﬁgure out if there was anything to it.” School board member Dick Klement echoed that assessment. "Everybody’s doing what they’re supposed to be doing," he said.
the victim off several times in her testimony. During the argument, the victim said she went back into the bathroom to change into her street clothes in preparation to leave the apartment. It was then, he allegedly trapped her in the bathroom, choked her with his hands, beat her and gagged her with her own curling iron. She recalled being beaten while her body was perpendicular to the bathtub. "I had zero doubt in my mind that I would die on his bathroom ﬂ oor," the woman testiﬁ ed. "That was the most horrible helpless feeling." She alleged she couldn't scream because he damaged her throat with the curling iron. At times she lost consciousness. She alleged the beating went on for about 30 minutes. All the while he allegedly screamed, "I'm going to kill you." Deputy county attorney Susan Boone described the alleged attack as a "savage, sadistic beating, that led to her being unable to speak normally for quite a period of time and left her covered with bruises, sore, in pain and in fear for her life." see RAMSEY page 10

RAMSEY from page 9
Next, Ramsey and the victim had a conversation in the kitchen, the victim said. She said he gave her a cloth with ice, and a "monster butcher knife" to make her "feel safe." Then he allegedly handed her a phone and told her to call police. Ramsey allegedly told her that in prison at least he'd have a roof over his head and meals to eat. "I felt like if I stayed he'd kill me and if I tried to leave he would kill me," said the victim. "I was frozen." Meanwhile, her dog sat down next to him. The victim said Ramsey had a close relationship to her dog. He'd often buy her pet steaks and hamburgers. "It took me weeks and weeks to forgive her," said the victim of her dog. "She very close to him and she is a pack animal and he was leader of the pack that day." The victim said Ramsey let her go home eventually. The victim said she couldn't recall exactly how she made it out of the apartment other than to say she gathered all her belongings and drove home. She didn't call police because she didn't want to go through the criminal justice system and because she felt shame for being attacked. "I wanted to go home and cry and drink and feel really sorry for myself by myself," said the victim. However, she did take photos of her injuries including her lips and bloody scalp. "I've seen '20/20' enough times to know," the victim said before getting cut off by an objection from the defense. Over the course of the week following the attack, the victim said Ramsey was constantly texting her. The subject matter of those texts were all over the map. Sometimes he was angry while other times he was attempting to apologize or curious if she was going to call police.
Boone said Ramsey sent about 100 texts to the victim following the attack. The victim said she was fearful he might come kill her if she stopped answering. Most of her responses were about how much he had hurt her. The victim described how she made fewer and fewer responses to his texts in the hopes of "weaning" him off trying to communicate with her. During this time, she continued to use the curling iron hoping that she could make her life feel normal. Finally, on Dec. 21, Ramsey allegedly sent text messages that alarmed the victim. While on the stand she read it back to the court. "Are you enjoying your days off?" Ramsey allegedly wrote. "I ﬁ nd your lack of response to any of my text amazing!! Good road trip?" The "road trip" apparently references a trip the victim took to see a dentist in Moultonborough. The victim said the reference was alarming because she didn't tell anyone where she was going. After that the victim allegedly got an even more ominous text. "Not talking was part of our problem should have ﬁ nished what I started last week," Ramsey allegedly texted. But public defender Howard Clayman told the jury that the state lacks the evidence to make a conviction. For instance, there was no attempt to do any forensic tests on the curling iron. Clayman also said there's no "medical evidence" to support the allegation Ramsey rammed a curling iron down her throat. Further, Clayman instructed the jury to look at the "context" of the text messages. "William Ramsey is not guilty of attempted murder, second-degree assault, reckless conduct or criminal threatening," said Clayman in his opening statement. The trial resumes at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

Grant would give Transvale Acres owners an avenue for selling their properties BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — More than two dozen Transvale Acres property owners met with town, state and federal ofﬁ cials last Thursday at the Conway Village Fire Department to learn about a program that could buy property owners out of their irreparable homes. The program is actually a grant that the town has to apply for, and to do it town ofﬁ cials will need the cooperation of owners who will ultimately beneﬁt. The grant is funded through the federal government and delivered via the state. It would allow property owners of full-time homes or people who own full-time rental properties to sell their properties to the town for pre-ﬂ ood values. After the town buys the proper-

FREEDOM — The construction manager responsible for building the town's new ﬁ re and police stations has given the facilities' keys to selectmen. An open house is scheduled for Saturday. Last year, voters at town meeting were asked for up to $1.2 million to build an addition on the ﬁ re station and an attached police station on Freedom Village Road. Of that, $1,070,000 would come from a bond. The remainder would come from the capital reserve fund for new buildings and land. But selectmen were able to lower the cost to $900,000. Up to $770,000 is to be raised by taxes and the remaining $130,000 is to come from the capital reserve fund. Ground breaking was held in August. The project came in on time and on budget, selectmen said. An open house will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 11. Opening remarks will be made at 9:30 a.m. and state Rep. Mark McConkey (R-Freedom) will read a letter from Governor John Lynch. Construction manager Todd Desmarias, of Raymond Desmarais & Associates, said the project went smoothly. Desmarias is a Freedom resident who currently serves on the school board. "As a resident of Freedom, I feel a sense of ownership as well as pride in what we produced as a team," said Desmarias. "I am referring to the selectmen, the town’s people, architect and civil engineer as well as all of the subcontractors and suppliers." The police station will feature an evidence storage space that meets law enforcement standards and also an interview room that's designed to provide privacy. The old police sta-

than ﬁ ve months. Transvale Acres was not the only area hit, but in the days immediately afterward Gov. John Lynch said it was the worst hit neighborhood in the state. Since that time the town has been going over records carefully to establish just what in the neighborhood was built legally and what wasn't. This has caused frustration for some property owners who want to repair their homes and let their lives get back to normal. Some people, however, don’t have that option now that the town is paying close attention to what goes on there. This program could provide an outlet for some of those people. For some, however, it might wind up being too little too late. “The program won’t work for me,” said Danielle Coimbra, 44, a single mother who has been living in Massachusetts since her home was ﬂ ooded. “I can’t wait another year and pay a mortgage on a home I can’t live in.” Ofﬁ cials hope the grant will take less time than that.

Two bays were added to the ﬁ re station. Now it has ﬁ ve bays.There are doors on either side of the ﬁ re station so that there's no need to move trucks around in order to respond to a call. The ﬁ re station in the village will still store equipment that's used on a seasonal basis. Fire chief Gene Doe said the new station was a vast improvement over the old one. The new station's air quality will be much better than the old station because the new ﬁ re station has a ventilation system. Signage and landscaping for the safety complex will be completed in the spring. Assisting the project design team were Custom Concepts Inc. and White Mountain Survey Inc.

hard to get the application in by April 20. “Hopefully we can get everything done in that amount of time,” Harbour said. The town will be in the neighborhood surveying, Sires said, something normally the homeowners pay for. Other homeowners voiced concerns the amount they would get wouldn’t cover getting a new home. Susan Wilson-Blaney said her house assessed for $26,000 before the ﬂ ood. “My kitchen cost more than that.” The town purchase will be a real estate transaction, ofﬁ cials said, with negotiations on both sides. The assessed price will likely be the starting point, but it will be somewhat ﬂexible. “It could be a lengthy process for some folks and it could be quick for others,” Harbour said. The next step is for the town to pull together the application before the April deadline. From there it will be out of their hands as to whether they get the grant. “It’s pretty much an all-or-nothing proposal,” Harbour said. “It doesn’t hurt to try.”

Eagles trail for the ﬁrst time all season, but win BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Kennett High hockey team found itself in an odd position for the ﬁ rst time this season — trailing. The Eagles trailed 3-0 land 5-2 sat week on the road at Belmont-Gilford. The Eagles proved to themselves and everyone else in Division III that they have enough offensive ﬁ repower to come back regardless of the deﬁ cit. The boys from Conway rallied to win 11-6 Wednesday to maintain their spot atop the standings and stay undefeated. “It was really a character building game for us,” Michael Lane, Eagles’ head coach, said. “I think to be able to come back twice like we did says a lot about our team. We got scoring and contributions from everyone.’
“It was really a character building game for us. I think to be able to come back twice like we did says a lot.” Kennett improved to 10-0 with the victory while the Bull Dogs slipped to 8-4. The Eagles were back on the ice last night skating at home against Kearsarge (0-9) at Ham Ice Arena. Results were not known as of press time. It was a rough opening 11 minutes on Wednesday as the Bull Dogs got off a dream 3-0 start. The hosts got on the scoreboard three minutes into the game and added to the lead less then 90 seconds later. With four minutes to play in the ﬁ rst the Bull Dogs made it 3-0 and were looking like they were going to run away with the game. Lane said he considered taking a timeout, but chose not to. “We deﬁnitely didn’t play our best hockey over the ﬁ rst 15 minutes, but we really didn’t play badly,” he said, “but it seemed like every time we made a mistake they capitalized. I felt we were playing good enough hockey we could get out of the period without using a timeout. In retrospect, I’m glad I didn’t call for it.” Just 23 seconds after Belmont-Gilford went up 3-0, KHS pulled a goal back. Anthony LaRusso banged home a rebound of a Gabe Lee shot to make it 3-1 with James Gallo also assisting on the play. Kennett High Junior Sean Doherty won Wednesday’s race at Jackson Ski Touring Foundation. See story Page 16. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOT O)

Skinny on Sports: mid-season thoughts around the water cooler BY JOHN SKELTON THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
Nice touch of providence and the weather Gods that postponed the Sixth Annual Movin’ on Fusion celebration of the arts from a nasty travel day and evening and originally full bill of high school activities on Friday Jan. 27 to sole spotlight at the KHS Auditorium last Friday. The KHS Project Graduation fund-raiser topped $4,000 in proceeds from admissions, intermission bake sale, 50/50 rafﬂe and art sales. It was great to see the strong support of the Eagle student body for their peers, and so many athletes able to be in attendance, on a rare mid-winter Friday with no basketball games scheduled. This columnist recalls a few Fridays of past years when basketball gym atten-
dance swelled at Fusion intermission, and sporting event-goers snuck their head inside the auditorium at ballgame halftimes. Past the season halfway mark and entering the NHIAA playoff stretch, it’s time to reﬂ ect on early season efforts and offer prognostications on the postseason chances of local Eagles athletic teams. In the category of save the dates are: KHS Eagles hockey (currently 10-0-0, ﬁrst in Division III, 71 Goals For, 13 Goals Allowed) NHIAA Division III semiﬁnals at F. E. Everett Coliseum in Concord on March 7. Coach Mike Lane will be challenged to keep the troops focused through the preliminary round, but the truth is, there are no more than ﬁve teams with any shot at the championship, and avoiding embarrassing playoff moments and a blowout will be the
task of a lower seeded guest team visiting the Ham Arena on March 3 in the quarterﬁ nal round. The local undefeated side has yet to be regularly tested by their strongest challengers, with a long mid-season away streak and many of the early home victories unappealing spectator events as blowout third period running time wins. Lane likes the schedule progression which provides some tough challenges in the regular season ﬁnal seven games. A recent compelling away rink challenge saw the Eagles pass a “gut check” in recovering from 3-0 and 5-3 early game deﬁ cits to take an 11-6 victory over upstart Belmont-Gilford (currently ﬁ fth, 8-4-0, 58 GF, 35 GA) at Laconia Ice Rink last mid-week.

Eagles take Kingswood to OT BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Kennett High boys basketball team came oh-so close to its ﬁrst Division III victory of the season last week. The Eagles took arch-rival Kingswood to overtime before falling 61-58 in a barn-burner. KHS closed out the week, Saturday, with a 57-35 loss at No. 1 Hanover. The Eagles, now 0-11 on the season in divisional play, showed signs of improvement at undefeated Hanover (12-0). On Jan. 24, the Marauders beat them easily in Redstone 67-25. KHS was playing with conﬁ dence after its performance against the boys from Wolfeboro on Jan. 30. “You want to talk about a game that twisted and turned,” Steve Cote, Eagles’ head coach, said of the Kingswood (6-5) contest. “…What a game. It was so nice to have a raspy voice at the end of a game. The Nest was hopping and fans were treated to just a great high school basketball game.” Kingswood stormed out of the gate to a 12-0 lead, but unlike previous games, Kennett bounced back and went on a pair of runs of it own and actually led 18-17 after the ﬁ rst quarter. “The guys buckled down on the defensive end and we were able to force a couple of turnovers and convert,” Cote said. “All of a sudden we were down 12-5 and just continued to battle back.” The Knights seized a bit of the momentum to lead 32-29 at halftime and were able to build their advantage to six points, 44-38 heading into the ﬁ nal eight minutes of regulation play. Once again the KHS players dug deep and responded to the challenge. The Eagles outscored the Knights 16-10 over the ﬁnal quarter and actu-
ally led by three late but Kingswood’s Kohl Meyers hit a long three-pointer to tie the game and force overtime. “We really set put the defense we wanted and were prepared to defend against the three,” Cote said. “He pulled up eight to 10 feet beyond the three-point line and drew nothing hut net, it was just a big time shot.” With the game deadlocked 54-54 it meant four extra minutes of play. Kennett actually had a 58-57 lead courtesy of a pair of Robert Starkey free throws with two minutes to play, but never scored again. Down two with less than 10 seconds left, the Eagles got the ball up the court but came up short on their bid to tie or take the lead. “There were a couple of things on the night that hurt us,” Cote said. “We missed six free throws in the third quarter and we had a couple of spells where we had turnovers trying to force our dribble penetration. We had easily eight to 10 turnover transition points. “The positives far outweighed any negatives,” he continued. “When we got behind we could have easily folded our tent. To come back and actually take the lead late was pretty exciting.” Kennett was led offensively by Starkey, who had a career-high 16 points. Jordan Stocker added 15; Michael Lautenschlager, 6; Seth Davison, 6; Alex Milford, 5; and Brandon DiLucchio, 5. “I think we come away from this game with conﬁ dence and know we can compete,” Cote said. The Eagles are on the road for their next two contests. They are scheduled to head to Plymouth (3-9) tonight looking to avenge a Dec. 19 loss (6245) in Redstone. KHS is slated to close out the week at Portsmouth (10-2) on Friday.

KHS improves to 10-0 EAGLES from page 13
The Bull Dogs led 3-1 after the opening period but shots were dead even. John Bishop, of KHS, and Alex Conway, B-G, both made 10 ﬁ rst period saves. The Eagles came out ﬂying in the second period and quickly tied the game. Dillon Smith won a one-on-one race for a loose puck, he was taken down and delayed penalty was called, but the Eagles never made it to the power-play as Connor Todd snapped a shot past Conway to cut the lead to 3-2. Kevin Murphy also picked up an assist on the play. With 12:36 to play in the second. Lee tied the game with a wrist shot from the right circle, Chris King and Gallo got the assists . The tie lasted less than 65 seconds as the Bull Dogs scored off a scrum in front of the net. They made it 5-3 on a breakaway with 8:01 to play in the second. “The attitude was good on the bench, the kids were not happy, but determined,” said Lane. Murphy cut the lead to 5-4 with a slap shot from the top of the right circle and with 3:16 to play in the frame Justin Munck scored on the power play to tie the game, Todd got the assist on the play. Bishop and Conway both made eight saves in the period. With the game knotted at 5-5. the stage was set for a thrilling third period, but all the thrills belonged to Lane’s troops. Munck put KHS in front for the ﬁ rst time and for good when he picked up his second of the night with a wrap around just 1:08 into the period. Lane said the play started with a great fore-check, causing a turnover with Nick Massa doing the work. Massa and Cody Richard got assists. The Eagles made it 7-5 when Smith scored an unassisted shorthanded goal just over four minutes into the period with a great individual effort. The Bull Dogs didn’t go away quietly, cutting into the lead with 7:08 to play with a power play goal. But the Eagles had too much ﬁ repower on the night. Smith scored his second to make it 8-6 and then Smith, Murphy and Todd combined for a beautiful tick-tack-toe goal with Todd ﬁnishing the play off for 9-6. Munck put the Eagles in double digits with his third goal on the night for his ﬁ rst career hat-trick, Massa and King got the assists. The Eagles closed out the scoring with a power play goal by Murphy from Todd. Bishop ﬁnished the game with 34 saves. “This was a huge test for our team and the kids answered the bell,” said Lane. “BG is a great team and they are going to be there in the end, our team knows that, so to win in their building on a night we trailed by multiple goals twice feels pretty good. ”If nothing else,” he continued, “we learned that we’re never out of. We got scoring from all three lines — everyone in the locker room can look around and know that they contributed.” Up next, the Eagles will hit the road for their two ﬁ nal road games on the season. They travel to Hollis/Brookline (9-4) on Saturday and then travel to Alvirne (10-0) four days later. Kennett will return home for the ﬁnal four games starting with Somersworth on Feb. 17.

Sean Doherty and Torin LaLiberte lead Kennett High boys to impressive win BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
JACKSON — Sean Doherty marked his return to high school cross country ski racing in style Thursday by winning the Moultonborough Academy Invitational at Jackson Ski Touring Foundation. He and team captain Torin LaLiberte, who ﬁ nished second overall, helped the Kennett High boys take the team title. KHS Junior Hannah Benson continued her winning ways by breezing to a two and half minute victory. The Kennett girls were ﬁfth out of eight schools on the day. “I’m very proud of the KHS team’s accomplishments this season,” Steve Vosberg, Eagles’ head coach, said. “Conditions were excellent at Jackson with a challenging course on the Eagle Mountain race trails. Congratulations to all skiers who raced!” Doherty, who helped the United States to a bronze medal at the Youth Olympic Games in the mixed cross country and biathlon relay in Austria two weeks ago, scorched the 5K course in a time of 14:32. LaLiberte was second in 15:49, ﬁ nishing almost two minutes ahead of Joe Smith, of Moultonborough Academy, who was third, 17:32. The Kennett boys scored 389 points to take team
honors with 389 points followed by Plymouth, 345; Interlakes, 343; White Mountain, 342; Moultonborough, 330; Proﬁle, 327; Gilford, 261; and Gorham, 85.

Other KHS skiers were Lily Brennan, 20th, 25:35; Mae Van Rossum, 35th, 29:12; and Katie Burton, 40th, 32:36. This was the ﬁ rst race to date where the Eagles have had four skiers compete in order to ﬁ gure in the overall team battle.

The next race for Kennett High is today with the Eagles hosting a skate race in North Conway’s Whitaker Woods at 2:30 p.m.

Eastman wins Jon Sassi Memorial at Black Mtn. BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — Nordic skiers gather at Black Mountain each winter for the Jon Sassi Memorial Race with the understanding that they will be skiing against the best skiers in the state from all MPA classiﬁcations. Schools arrive in Rumford from all over Maine, some from as far away as Aroostook County, and this year 38 schools sent 475 skiers to Black Mountain for this prestigious race. Silas Eastman, a Fryeburg Academy junior, has already won two state Nordic ski championships, yet Fryeburg Academy coach John Weston believes that his win at the Sassi race on Saturday is more impressive. “Winning a state championship is one of the highest accomplishments an individual can achieve in high school ski racing,” he said. “However state championship meets are divided into three classes in the state of Maine so there are actually multiple state champions crowned each season. Defending his victory in this same race from a year ago, Silas Eastman once again took the top spot on the podium at the end of the day allowing him to be anointed as the best high school Nordic skier in the state of Maine.” Eastman demonstrated that he is able to overcome adversity as well as ski while defeating his competition. The rain and sleet from Friday along with race time temperatures climbing to above freezing created tough conditions on Saturday. The Raider skiers turned to klister, a difﬁ cult wax to manage due to its stickiness. Despite the challenging conditions, Eastman remained undaunted and won the race covering the 4,910 meter course in 13:45.5. Although Eastman won the race, but fellow Raider Paul Kurnick raced almost as impressively. Kurnick toured the course in 14:36.5 for a 13th place ﬁ nish. He missed a top 10 ﬁ nish by less than 10 seconds. Second year skier Logan Gerchman ﬁ nished in 15:58.9 in 40th place for the race of his short career. Senior Adam Armington ﬁnished 72nd with a17:11.8 time to complete the team scoring. The Raider boys ﬁ nished with 115 points for an impressive sixth place ﬁ nish. The Raider girls totaled 353 points for an18th place ﬁnish. Sadie James of Mt. Abram set the pace in the girls’ race with a 16:24.6 time. Junior Hannah Plowden led the Raiders with a 21:33.7 time for a 65th place. Ski meister Kelsey Liljedahl ﬁ nished in 23:22.9 for 97th place, and Amber Dindorf ﬁ nished in 117th place with a 24:12.1 time. First year skier Laura Pulito rounded out the Raider scoring with a 25:57.4 time.

Raiders continue winning BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — In an ongoing mustwin situation if they hope to make the post season, the Raider boys basketball team continued to take care of their end of the business last week. Fryeburg Academy defeated Freeport, 62-49, on the road on Tuesday and Gray New Gloucester, 52-35, at home on Friday. Two regular season games remain for the Raiders (6-10), and if they take both, they will have a chance to enter a prelim tournament game. If they continue to improve, they could prove to be a bad draw in the preliminary game, even though they will be on the road. The Raiders started their week off properly with a win at Freeport. The Raiders trailed 29-28 at the half, but the Raiders have dealt with adversity increasingly well as the year has progressed, and they came out of the locker room and put the game away in the third quarter with a 20-7 period. Sanders talked about the Raiders’ play, “The last time we played, we jumped out right at the beginning, but we knew things would be tougher down there than at home. They had a chance to get in the tournament if they beat us, so they threw everything at us.” The Raiders hurt themselves with 13 turnovers in the ﬁ rst half. They compounded the problem with poor shot selection despite a signiﬁ cant size advantage. At the half, Saunders talked to his team about eliminating the turnovers and getting the ball inside, “We made it a priority to take care of the ball and get it inside in the second half. On our ﬁrst possession we had two ball reversals, got the ball down low, and got a traditional three-point play. That set the tone for the second half. We pounded the ball inside and we only took one three pointer.” They had some impressive rebound totals, which impressed Saunders, but he did acknowledge that part to the rebound totals came from missing some easy shots, “We had 32 offensive rebounds. Part of it was that we didn’t shoot the ball well, but we did rebound well.” Bright Amoako continued his daz-
zling play at point guard handling the ball, setting up teammates, and scoring on his own during the period. He scored 7 of his 19 points during the third frame when the Raiders took control of the game. He also had 27 rebounds for the game from his point guard position. Djordje Obradovic provided scoring from the post with 17 points, and Walker Mallory added 13. Lionel Rutabayairo scored 6 points in the fourth quarter and made some nice reads cutting to the basket during the delay game in the closing minutes as the Raiders efﬁ ciently put the game away. Zach Sargent also made key contributions from the bench according to Saunders. It wasn’t a pretty win in Saunders’ eyes, but he appreciated the Raiders’ efforts, “We gutted it out. We didn’t shoot really well, and Freeport played with some desperation.” On Friday, the Raiders once again put their opponent away with a strong third period. Fryeburg led 22-14 at the half, and then buried Gray with a 17-4 run in the third period. Amoako led the Raiders with 11 points and Obradovic added 10. Amoako once again led the team with 9 rebounds. Gray, who was coming off a win at Cape Elizabeth, uses guard play to shoot threes. The Raiders had a size advantage again, so they game planned to go inside. In the second half the Raiders pounded the ball in side again, shot a high percentage, and as a result, they were able to get into their press better and force turnovers. The Raiders also hit 11-12 from the free throw line and Tyler Saunders did a nice job defensively getting to Gray’s shooters in the second half. Obradovic strong in the second half scoring from the post, and senior Kevin Noles returned after a month long illness to contribute as well. So the Raiders enter the ﬁ nal week of their season with an opportunity to create a post-season experience for themselves. They played at Lake Region (3-13) yesterday (results not known as of press time), who they beat 63-48 on Jan. 24.

third period onslaught of six Eagles goals was a direct result of team depth. The ability to roll three lines and ﬁ ve solid defensemen against an opponent playing far less skaters took its toll. First period adrenaline of amped up B-G was worn away when it mattered down the stretch, much like has often happened in third periods to opponents of the champion Boston Bruins. A gauntlet of late season games versus the Division challengers, Saturday at Hollis- Brookline (fourth, 9-4-0, 81 GF, 40 GA), Feb. 15 at No. 2 and undefeated Alvirne (10-0-0, 71 GF, 22 GA), and home hosting No. 3 PelhamWindham (9-1-0, 69 GF, 28 GA) Feb. 22 before regular season home ﬁ nale against past nemesis Souhegan (6th, 7-4-1, 74 GF, 36 GA) Feb. 25. These contests will determine the Eagles seeding entering the playoffs. With a non-Division hostile rink win over Division II leader Bedford (9-2-0), there is no indication to bet against the Eagles entering the post-season as the No. 1 seed. At the very least, the late season stretch will help peak the Eagles for playoff fervor and provide more drama than the seasons’ ﬁrst half. In girls hardwood action, a new era has begun and there is good news. Post-2011 graduation of Allie Wagner/ Melissa Frase/Sam Meader and retirement of Coach Peter Ames, there is still quality basketball and lots of victories in sight. While a serious State Championship title run would be a stretch, the Eagles have shown they will be a formidable early round opponent and an interesting dark-horse. Record (7-4) and rating (ninth) aside, the Eagles have shown what every fan should like: improvement. An early season losses to under .500 Saint Thomas has been avenged and the
Eagles are beginning to show they can stick with teams from the Division II iron for periods of play. On several occasions, lackluster ﬁrst half performances have been turned to sure victories, as a young team learns from its mistakes. And in any playoff, the curse of the hot shooter could strike any Eagles opponent, as when 2012 senior Jessie proved herself the not least bashful Wagner to pour in some three pointers, as she scorched Laconia for 23 points, including seven treys at KHS Redstone Nest. First year varsity coach Larry Meader is pleased, “players are starting to shift into their new scoring roles.” While Lauren Kidder, Lauren White, Casey Blakely, Kaitlin Taylor and Jordan Moore are varsity returners, this season they are needed to score points. Meader notes that through the ﬁ rst 11 games, “we have developed more patience, gotten the ball inside (to our tall girls), and worked the offense rather than throwing up a quick ﬁrst shot.” For the boys hoopsters, more patience will be needed before playoff action returns, but the horizon is in sight. The 2011-12 team has yet to crack the W column (0-11, 23rd), yet remains upbeat, spirited and disciplined in their approach to the game. Seven varsity roster slots are taken by freshmen or sophomores, so the future is bright. The question is not if, but when the ﬁrst W will be recorded down the ﬁ nal stretch. Traditional rivals Kingswood (11th, 6-5) and Laconia (3-9, 21st) have closing week encounters with the Eagles that likely hold playoff implications, and Plymouth (4-8,17th) will do well to survive the Eagles visit tonight. So while playoff basketball is not in the cards for this March, games with playoff implications and tournament-level intensity abound for the Eagles to build upon and play spoilers in.

We also accept donations of adult ﬁ ction and nonﬁ ction, DVDs, and books on CD. We cannot accept VHS movies, books on cassette, nonﬁ ction with outdated info, or books in poor condition.

The Friends of the Library will be providing funds for an hourly wage. We are also hoping to be able to offer the intern a place to stay. Do you have extra room in your house and heart? We would like to write the job announcement soon, so if you think maybe this is something you'd consider, please call Elizabeth Rhymer at 539-5176 asap to discuss. Many thanks.
This practice is not Biblical, although the use of ashes and sackcloth is a common sign in the Old Testament for repentance. It began to be observed by the Roman Catholic Church, which was the predecessor of ours, in the sixth century, well before the Protestant Reformation. So, this is included in our history. The distribution is meant to remind us of our mortality and calls us to repentance. The words – "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return" – are taken from Genesis 3:19. It is an optional ritual, and if you don’t feel comfortable receiving, it should not be utilized. However, for some, it is meaningful and we hope you’ll come. As with every service, it depends on the weather. All are welcome.

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams
by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The road smoothes out ahead. It’s as though you are the ﬁ rst to hit the brand-new pavement, and you’re in for an easy ride. It’s about time. You’re way overdue. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll give of yourself without recompense or even thanks. There’s no accounting for other people’s manners, but you’ll always feel better about yourself for having made the effort to enrich the lives of others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). You can access your intuition through the land of imagination. Though it is sometimes tricky to distinguish the difference between useful information and fearful fantasies, keep trying, and you’ll soon get the knack of it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can only push yourself to the limit if you know where the limit is. If you don’t, it’s best to hang back and observe. There is no beneﬁ t to overloading yourself. Doing so could lead to regret. Err on the side of caution. PISCES (Feb. 19 -March 20). You know there are certain things a loved one could be doing to improve. How often should you speak of it? Not very often if you want to love, and not dominate, this person. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 7). You’ll break out of your routine and upgrade your lifestyle this year. You share a psychic connection with a loved one, and this will be expressed in many ways. June features an unforgettable party. Interruptions in July may cause you to ﬂy wildly off track from your professional plan, but you’ll return with new insight. Libra and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 30, 21, 39 and 18.
HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). Productivity is linked to being in tune with your natural rhythms. Take cues from your body. When you’re tired, rest. Your inclination to re-caffeinate and push through the lethargy is unwise and counterproductive. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have quite a responsibility today. You are, after all, the external expression of existence. And whether you think about it or not, how you live and feel will be vitally important to the universal order. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes you have to work hard not to have an edge in your voice, and the effort is deﬁ nitely worthwhile. The way you talk shows the level of compassion you have for yourself and your loved ones. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When a situation, outcome or person does not measure up to your expectations, it is easy to feel disappointed and critical. Try to get past these emotions, though, because there is a golden opportunity in the works. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a special talent for facing reality and interpreting things in such a way that those around you can easily face it, too. It may feel like you have to tap dance to keep your audience engaged. Luckily, you’re rather good at the art of dance. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A special relationship is strong because you have faced adversity together. In a strange way, the easy and fun times may be more difﬁ cult to navigate than the hard times. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Relationships are tricky. If you stay aware, you can keep a dicey situation from veering too far off course. You can bring this one closer to the way you once dreamed it would be.

O Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom of my heart to succor me in my necessity (make request). There are none that can withstand your power. O Mary conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to thee (3 times). Holy Mary, I place this cause in your hands (3 times). Say this prayer for 3 consecutive days and then you must publish and it will be granted to you.

FOR WORKERS ON GRAVEYARD SHIFT, DAYTIME IS BEDTIME
DEAR ABBY: I just read the letter from a fellow frustrated night shifter, “Working a 40-Hour Week at Age 73” (Dec. 20). I have worked 12-hour shifts for many years to accommodate our family life. It is easier for me to be home in the morning to get the kids to school and be home when they get off the bus in the afternoon. I have the early evening free to get them to their activities, then go to work later. I thoroughly agree that the rest of the world does not understand! I’ve had the strangest requests from people because I’m home during the day. My solution has been to turn off our home phone and sleep with my cellphone on (in case one of the kids gets sick at school or some other dire emergency). This year I made a laminated sign for my front door, asking for peace and quiet. It says, “Please do not ring my doorbell. Night-shift worker sleeping at this time.” -- SLEEPLESS IN WISCONSIN DEAR SLEEPLESS: Thanks for your letter. Your fellow night shifters were in complete agreement with you. My newspaper readers comment: DEAR ABBY: There’s nothing unusual about “Working’s” problem. I worked the graveyard shift for years at different jobs in different states, and it was exactly the same. In my case it was usually my mother, not my husband, who kept waking me up. Even worse, it wasn’t unusual for bosses to call and wake me. What surprised me was the number of people who think that sleep is optional rather than necessary. They seemed to think that they sleep at night because there’s nothing else to do. -- LAURA IN POLLOK, TEXAS DEAR ABBY: Many people don’t understand night workers’ schedules. Relatives would announce that they were coming to visit during my working weekends despite the fact that I’d speciﬁ cally explained my schedule. My husband would
snipe at me in underhanded ways. When I ﬁnally confronted him, he admitted that he “subconsciously” felt that someone sleeping during the day was lazy. Working nights is tough. The Harvard Nurses’ Health Study has discovered that night workers get less rest even if they get a good day’s sleep, that we make less melatonin and we die younger. -- R.N. IN CONNECTICUT DEAR ABBY: I sympathize with “Working.” I also work a graveyard shift so I can be home with our newborn and not have to put him in day care eight hours a day. It’s hard for people to understand that even though it’s daytime for them, it’s my night! I found myself running errands, marketing, etc., because I felt guilty being at home all day and “doing nothing.” It took its toll on me until I got to the point where I could barely function. I ﬁ nally had to get over my issues about being home during the day and realize that I was putting in a 40-hour week just like anyone else. Since I didn’t expect to do my chores at 3 a.m., I would no longer let anyone expect it of me. I still sleep in shifts to keep my son’s time at day care to a minimum, but when I sleep, I don’t let anyone interrupt. The world is going to have to wait until I get up. Please tell “Working” not to let anyone make her feel guilty. Everyone needs sleep, and she shouldn’t have to justify it to anyone. -- FELLOW 3RD SHIFTER IN INDIANAPOLIS DEAR ABBY: I worked nights for years. My husband’s friends thought they were being funny when they’d call me at 7 a.m. asking, “How’s the ‘bat’ doing?” One night at 3 a.m. I called each one of them to ask how THEY were doing. After that, I never received an early call again. My husband didn’t respect me either. He wanted me to get up at 7 a.m. to watch our son so he could play golf. I ﬁ nally divorced him. -- FULLY RESTED IN NEW MEXICO
