Selectmen to plow through policy on sidewalks BY ERIC EISELE

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — In a reaction to business owners’ complaints, it’ll be sidewalks and snow at tonight’s selectmen meeting. The town stopped clearing the snow from the sidewalks on the east side of Route 16
between the intersection with Route 302 joins and Artist Falls Road, to the chagrin of the businesses there. “I don’t understand the methodology that went into the decision,” said Nate Sullivan, the owner of the Yankee Clipper Inn and Blueberry Mufﬁn Restaurant. “It didn’t go through the proper process.”
Sullivan has been leading the charge to reexamine the change, which at least one selectmen said he wasn’t aware had occurred. The issue was discussed at the January 11 selectboard meeting, with every board-member in attendance. see SIDEWALKS page 9

Snubbed fans get Super Bowl tickets DALLAS — The 400 ticketholders who were denied seats at the Super Bowl Sunday when temporary bleachers erected inside Cowboys Stadium were deemed unsafe were offered free tickets to next year’s Super Bowl as guests of the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday. “We apologize to those fans that were impacted,” Goodell said during a news conference at a downtown hotel. “We are going to work with them and we are going to do better in the future. We will certainly do a thorough review and get to the bottom of why it all occurred, but we take full responsibility.” On the morning after the Packers’ 31-25 victory over the Steelers, the most sought-after ﬁgure for comment was not the Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was presented with the most valuable player award, but someone who normally is more anonymous than an offensive lineman. Eric Grubman, the NFL’s executive vice president of business operations, was called on to explain how roughly 1,250 people holding tickets for the game at Cowboys Stadium were displaced or turned away because sections of temporary bleachers were declared unsafe and unusable.

Pharmacies besieged by addicted thieves BINGHAM, Maine (NY Times) — The signs posted at Chet Hibbard’s pharmacy here relay a warning: We Do Not Stock OxyContin. Hibbard stopped dispensing the highly addictive painkiller last July, after two robbers in ski goggles demanded it at knifepoint one afternoon as shocked customers looked on. It was one in a rash of armed robberies at Maine drugstores last year, a sharp increase that has rattled pharmacists and put the police on alert. “I want people to know before they even get
in the door that we don’t have it,” Hibbard said of OxyContin, which the authorities say is the most common target of pharmacy robberies here. “Outside hiring an armed guard to be in here 24/7, I don’t know what else to do.” Maine’s problem is especially stark, but it is hardly the only state dealing with pharmacy robberies, one of the more jarring effects of the prescription drug abuse epidemic that has left drugstores borrowing heist-prevention tactics from the more tradi-
tional targets, banks. In at least one case, a tiny tracking device afﬁxed to a bottle let the police easily track a thief after a robbery. More than 1,800 pharmacy robberies have taken place nationally over the last three years, typically conducted by young men seeking opioid painkillers and other drugs to sell or feed their own addictions. The most common targets are oxycodone (the main ingredient in OxyContin), hydrocodone (the main ingredient in Vicodin) and Xanax.
Afghan suicide bomber Protests in Cairo linger as kills two, wounds ﬁve normal life begins to resume CAIRO (NY Times) — With Egypt’s revolt entering a third week, many parts of Cairo appeared to be resuming normal life on Monday: A.T.M.’s dispensed much-needed cash, shops and banks were staffed — though some kept their doors shut to customers — and the city’s drivers were snarled in a vast trafﬁc jam. The government met on Monday for its ﬁ rst formal meeting since President Hosni Mubarak reorganized it in the early days of the uprising, announcing a 15 per-
cent salary hike for government employees, according to news reports. The move appeared targeted at shoring up support for Mr. Mubarak among the six million workers on the government payroll and defuse popular support for the ongoing protests. The newly appointed ﬁnance minister, Samir Radwan, said the pay raise would take effect in April, The Associated Press reported; other reports suggested that the raise might be a one-time bonus.
KABUL, Afghanistan (NY Times) — Evading security checks, a suicide bomber wearing a vest with explosives entered the customs compound in Kandahar on Monday and detonated the vest as several American soldiers were emerging from their armored vehicle in the compound’s courtyard. The blast killed an American and an Afghan civilian and wounded ﬁ ve other people, including two of the soldiers, according to Afghan and NATO security forces and the United States Embassy. It was the fourth suicide bombing of the year in Kandahar Province. Ofﬁcials said the Afghan was an interpreter and the American was an adviser to the customs ofﬁ ce. Their identities were not immediately disclosed. “At the time, I heard a big explosion and saw American bodies were lying on the ground bleeding,” said Mohammed Shoib, the customs ofﬁce’s director of control.

One man, multiple votes? Poll: Union Leader readership BY DAVID BROOKS THE NASHUA TELEGRAPH
CONCORD – The phrase “one man, one vote” doesn’t mean what you think it does, according to one of the more unusual laws being proposed in Concord. “It refers to letting people vote fairly, and to having correct proportional representation,” said Dan McGuire, a Republican state legislator from Epsom. What it doesn’t mean, he said, is that each vote must be for just one man. In fact, McGuire thinks New Hampshire voters should be allowed to vote for as many people as they want in any race. He has sponsored a bill, HB 240, which would tweak ballots for local and state elections in New Hampshire by “allowing voters to vote for multiple candidates for an ofﬁ ce.” It will be the subject of a hearing today. The bill wouldn’t let you vote for the same person more than once, but you could vote for multiple people running against each other. This approach, known as approval voting, is the simplest form of various alternatives to traditional voting patterns. Supporters say such alternatives create a better reﬂ ection of the electorate’s overall opinion that the usual voting method, which is called ﬁrst-past-the-post, or single-member plurality. “This gives voters more options …
to reﬂ ect how they feel about all the candidates,” McGuire said. To use an example that helped prod McGuire to draft the bill, consider November’s election for governor, which had three candidates. McGuire, a Republican, liked the GOP candidate, John Stephen, but he liked the libertarian candidate, John Babiarz, even more. Yet if he had voted for both, his ballot would have been tossed out as invalid – even though it would have been an accurate reﬂection of his wishes. He ended up voting for Stephen because Babiarz had no chance of winning, which is the sort of “gamesmanship” voting that he’d like New Hampshire to avoid. If his law goes through – which McGuire admits is unlikely, at least in the short term – he could have voted for both Stephen and Babiarz, even though only one seat was involved. In fact, he could have voted for John Lynch, as well. The multiple votes would have been tallied as always and the candidate with the most total votes would win, as currently happens. The most obvious difference is that the total number of votes cast in the race would be greater than the total number of people who cast those votes. Approval voting is one type of alternative voting schemes, which have names like Cordorcet Method and instant-runoff balloting.
Town stops burials because of snow DERRY — A local cemetery is not holding any more burials until the weather changes. Derry Town Administrator John Anderson said graves can’t be dug at Forest Hill Cemetery because the people who dig the graves are the same people who plow the roads, and after all the storms, they have no time to spare clearing the cemetery. Anderson said workers would have
to clear the snow from the cemetery and then jackhammer through the frost before digging the grave in a process that could take four hours. He said after the workers have been plowing roads for 24 to 36 hours straight, they can’t then work in the cemetery. He said the plan is to keep the cemetery closed for about four weeks, unless the weather changes signiﬁcantly. —Courtesy of WMUR
divided on effort to free Bird BY MARK HAYWARD THE UNION LEADER
Although the Free Ward Bird cry seemed to echo across New Hampshire, many UnionLeader.com readers don’t appear to share the sentiment. A survey of readers found 43 percent thought the Moultonborough farmer should have remained behind bars. But a combined 57 percent thought Bird should have been pardoned or had his sentence commuted. “Why bother having judges, trials and sentencing when you can just wait until your political party wants to make you a martyr for an issue they’re pushing?” wrote Manchester resident Jim Wilson, one of hundreds to post his thoughts about the Bird matter. The website invited readers to participate in the survey, which was available until Friday evening. Six hundred twenty-eight readers took the informal survey. Bird was charged with criminal threatening in March 2006, after he ordered a lost Christine Harris off his property and at one point drew a weapon. A jury convicted Bird in 2008 and he received a mandatory three- to six-year sentence. He was imprisoned late last year, after his appeals were exhausted.
His family and friends started the Free Ward Bird campaign on his behalf, arguing that a person should have the right to use a ﬁ rearm to defend his property. Many saw the issue as one of property rights or gunowner rights. “I don’t know Ward Bird nor do I know all the circumstances except that someone trespassed on his property even though it was posted and she saw it. He did not shoot her and if he did have a gun, he has a right to defend his property and his home,” wrote Don of Bedford. Bird applied for a pardon, and last week the Executive Council voted to commute Bird’s sentence, after Gov. John Lynch blocked an outright pardon. The commutation freed Bird from the Carroll County jail on Wednesday, but he remains a convicted felon. More than one-third of the respondents -- 36 percent -- thought Bird should have received an outright pardon. The lowest percentage, 21 percent, favored the commutation. “In this case, the punishment did not ﬁ t the crime (and I do believe a crime was committed),” wrote Bill of Nashua. “Time served, no longer allowed to possess weapons; sounds fair to me.”

Founders didn’t categorize by victim class To the editor: In attacking Congressman Michelle Bachmann for taking liberties with history, perpetually indignant Conway Daily Sun correspondent Diane Gurien commits a howler herself. Ms. Gurien takes umbrage with Congresswoman Bachmann’s unapologetic praise for the Constitution. Like many liberals, Ms. Gurien ﬁnds that document, as originally drafted, sadly lacking. It follows, therefore, that those who revere it, like Congresswoman Bachmann, are little better that co-conspirators in the many iniquities liberals ﬁ nd unaddressed in the Constitution. Like failing to include women in its coverage! That’s right — according to Ms. Gurien, one of the signal failings of the Constitution, was that when it speciﬁ ed how to tally state populations for the purpose of assessing taxes and determining the number of representatives, “Women, tellingly, were not counted at all!” Ah, the horror of it, this yellowing artifact of clueless patriarchy! Half the population not even covered. No wonder liberals insist the Constitution has to be made “living” by liberal judges. Except Ms. Gurien’s statement is nonsense: of course women were included among the “people,” “citizens” and “persons,” to whom the Constitution refers. See, e. g., Lewis, J.: “The Constitution, then, included women, and it made women rights bearers.” www.common-place.org · vol.
2, no. 4, July 2002. Unlike liberals like Ms. Gurien, the Founders felt no imperative to categorize the population by victim class. In the entire Constitution, the word “male” or “men” never appears, so it’s hardly a wonder “women” aren’t separately mentioned. Nor are gays, straights, whites, blacks, Albanian dwarves, albinos, Christians, atheists, the disabled, or any of the other inﬁ nite number of classes into which liberals wish to divide us, and which liberals see as claimants for the favors government, under the direction of liberals, exists to dispense. Liberalism posits government as an endless game of musical chairs, in which at every election countless sub-groups scramble for “rights,” the liberal term for property to be taken from others. Under this view, a Constitution that fails to mention by name whatever group is the victim de jour is, I suppose, simply reinforcing that group’s claim to victimhood. Happily, the Founders took a radically different view of rights, and of government — one most Americans share. Unlike Ms. Gurien, most of us don’t need to be particularized by group name — it is simply as “Americans” that we claim our rights, and we ask no more of the Constitution than that it bind our government to respect those rights.

Tele-Talk Should the town spend the money to keep the sidewalks clear along the Route 16 strip? There were 45 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “Should the town spend the money to keep the sidewalks clear along the Route 16 strip?” Nineteen people said the town should spend the money to keep the sidewalks clear; 21 said the town should not clear the sidewalks. Of course you should spend money to keep the sidewalks clear. The taxes you charge the businesspeople on that strip should be indicative of the fact that it’s your responsibility. Maybe to simplify this situation we should just charge the snow piles with loitering. We could build an expensive, high-cost system of coolers to warehouse these useless piles, then hire a psychologist and set up a welfare system for them when the lawyers and judges feel they’ve been rehabilitated — just like Hillary and the liberals like to do with their piles. Absolutely we should spend the money to keep the sidewalks clear along the Route 16 strip, otherwise people walk in the road, then there’s a chance that they’ll get hit. This is Lisa in North Conway. Yes, I think the onus should be on the businesses for plowing their own sidewalks. They plow their parking lots, they can plow their sidewalks. Wake up Conway. Are these your improperly and poorly lighted sidewalks or not? Does the town want good relations with its citizens and businesses or not? Do you need to wait for a slip and fall lawsuit or three to ﬁ gure this out? I’d say more but I’m heading out for my evening walk along the strip. The businesses should all buy their own snowblowers, just like we all do. No. People should get over themselves and clean their own sidewalks. What expenses do our taxes go to? This is a resort town. We are a very unfriendly resort town. We turn the lights off and don’t plow the sidewalks for our guests who spend lots of money here and make it possible for some of us to pay our taxes. I think Nate Sullivan, along with other motel owners along the strip, have a real concern about making the sidewalks safe for all people. I found Paul DegliAngeli’s reply to Nate very insulting, not at all what one would expect from a town employee. Paul works for us, the residents of Conway. He seems to think that he can do or say whatever he wants. I ﬁ nd him extremely unprofessional, and with remarks like that no wonder why he is not liked. So, they close the dump on Sundays. They shut the streetlights off. They don’t want to plow the sidewalks. They spent $60,000 for new plans for a town garage that was never needed but can’t plow the sidewalks. The biggest taxpayers are from Burger King to Intervale Scenic Vista, and they’re the ones that are getting dark streets and unplowed sidewalks. Town hall needs an overhaul. Times have changed. Get out and vote — vote these people out. Need a change right now. No. The owners should be responsible for cleaning the sidewalks and not the taxpayers paying the bills.
Tuesday, Feb. 1, “Police determine that a driver is not at fault in a collision with a pedestrian Friday night on Route 16 in North Conway. Injuries sustained by the pedestrian were not life threatening.” A couple of months ago at dusk, a woman was hit and killed by a car around the same area. Who’s at fault and now the question is “Should the town spend money to keep the sidewalks clear on Route 16 on the strip?” Let’s see here: We don’t have lights on the strip anymore and we don’t plow one side of the road anymore so people are walking in the street. People are walking in the street all along Route 16, all the way up to the Bartlett town line. And when you’re driving along there it’s dark and there are no sidewalks because we’re not plowing them. Who’s at fault? Selectmen anyone? Scott in Kearsarge. I believe that the sidewalks should deﬁnitely be kept clear during this snowy period that we’ve had. People’s safety is not worth the money that might be saved on that, but it’s being lost by the business owners and the threat to people. It’s just much too unsafe to try to economize in that manner. Small business is why people come to this town to spend their money. Unfortunately, with the recession, gas prices and the town tax rate, it’s virtually impossible to run a business or a town and survive. The town is no different than the small businesses that make up the town. Shutting off lights, opening up less days at the dump, not plowing raising prices/taxes, are a sure sign that things are getting worse. Shut the lights off, don’t open up every day, and let the rumors begin. Steal from the poor and give to the rich. Absolutely not. They want exercise, let them have it. Go shovel it. Where are they from anyway? Massachusetts, I think. Or maybe New York, Connecticut. Someplace. But not here. Yes, I think that one side of the street having the sidewalks plowed is ﬁne, because there are never too many people walking down the street at one time that there would be an overﬂ ow. If the people on the other side of the street, ie. the Blueberry Mufﬁn or the Marriott don’t like that they’re not plowed this year, I think they could take their own snowblowers and, as a courtesy to the town, plow themselves out, because they’re not really a walkto destination. Secondly, I would much rather see the sidewalks not plowed at all and the lights turned back on because it is far more dangerous to have people walking in the dark in dark clothing than it is walking on one side of the street and then they have to cross, of course. So, I think if those people are concerned about it, they should just have their maintenance men plow that little part of the sidewalk that belongs to them. And some towns do that anyway. No, the proprietors should pay for shoveling their own sidewalks. The Red Jacket has their own maintenance people. So does the Blueberry Mufﬁ n. Let them use their own maintenance people.
To quote Ned Sullivan, “This is a very challenging time economically.” He is right, and every one of us here in the valley have tightened our belts. Speaking for myself, we now shovel our own roof rather than pay someone else to do it for us. Hmmmm. Could that possibly be because of the price of heating oil, or taxes, or groceries or gas. Come on Ned, grab a shovel and get your neighbors to do it to. Bob and Judy in Conway. I think that the sidewalk shoveling should be left to the business owner(s). When I lived in Connecticut, business and personal households had an obligation to shovel their own sidewalks. The only sidewalks which were cleared by the city were those at the police, ﬁ re department, city hall, and of course the schools. If you had a sidewalk in front of your house, you had a 12-hour period after the storm stopped, to get the sidewalk cleared. If it were not cleared, a police ofﬁ cer would show up, and warn you verbally as to the law, then note it at police headquarters. If the sidewalk was still unshoveled after the warning, you would be ﬁ ned. Of course there we some exceptions for cripples, etc. In these times of federal, state and local ﬁ nance problems, I would think that living in a state without an income or sales tax would be enough of a break. Businesses, should be responsible for clearing their own sidewalks, and could even use the expense as a business write off. When you have the city or town cleaning the sidewalks, it puts those expenses on the shoulders of the local tax paying citizens who may not even be using those sidewalks. Bartlett Lou. Should the town plow the sidewalks? What a brilliant question. Gee, I wonder. Here are a few other deeply profound topics for future Tele-Talk questions: Should the town stop wasting electricity on trafﬁ c lights and instead tell motorists to just “keep your eyes open” when driving? Is there really a need for police ofﬁ cers and ﬁreﬁghters when all citizens could simply carry guns and ﬁre extinguishers instead? Do we really need schools, or should those pesky child labor laws be relaxed so we can put kids to work starting at age 5? Let Nate Sullivan shovel the snow in front of his own business. Why should the taxpayers help out a guy who made a cool one million bucks selling that property to the Marriott. Can’t he afford a snow blower? Disgusted, in Conway. Don’t clear the sidewalks. We locals don’t use them. Make it difﬁ cult for the pain-in-the-butt tourists. Maybe they’ll quit coming here and we won’t need more cops, workforce housing, cleared sidewalks, etc. This is Ralph in Eaton. The residents of the Town of Conway do not need any more tax burden! If these businesses think they need to make more money from the foot trafﬁc in the winter, go see Ben at Sears and buy a snow blower and maintain them yourself. Joe S. If you are a tourist who regularly vacations up here, do you vacation
somewhere else because the sidewalks on one side of the strip are not plowed? No! Do you stay at a different lodging establishment because the sidewalks in front of the one you usually stay at are not plowed? No! Do you fancy an alternate restaurant or outlet store because the ones you typically dine or shop at do not have plowed sidewalks? No! Instead of walking, you drive. And if you prefer to walk, you simply walk on the side of the street with plowed sidewalks! The fact that one side of the strip does not have plowed sidewalks has a net zero effect on tourism or tourist spending! I understand Mr. Sullivan’s concern, but not plowing the sidewalks on one side of the strip does not “put a choke hold on people getting through town.” Regarding Ms. Crawford’s statements; I suspect she takes her job seriously, and attempts to do her best to represent the businesses along the strip and elsewhere in the valley, but she obviously does not represent the taxpayer, and in this instance, for the taxpayer, “a penny saved is a penny earned.” Finally, her statement that “tourism-related business should be considered in town decision making” is in my opinion not wholly accurate. Generally speaking, the ﬁ nancial interests of tourism-related business is not the town’s job. What should factor into town decision making is the residential and commercial taxpayers; ﬁ rst and foremost, above all else, always; now that would help everybody! Lower the commercial and residential tax rates. Property owners pass that savings along to your business tenants. Businesses then offer their products at a lower price; residents win, business wins, tourists and tourism wins! Finally, entrepreneurs, brainstorm and present some creative solutions to the town. 1.) Alternate the side of the street that gets plowed each year; that’s fair. 2.) All property owners on both sides of the strip fund the operation of a bobcat for sidewalk snow removal. The town then returns the money they saved on sidewalk snow removal to the taxpayers. The town also drops the commercial tax rate for every property owner along the strip that contributed to the “Conway Sidewalk Snow Removal Fund” by an equal or greater amount than their investment in sidewalk snow removal. If you didn’t contribute, you don’t get the tax credit. 3.) Cut that ridiculously bloated school budget by the $400,000 that should have been cut, and then spend the $35,000 to plow the other sidewalk, that’s still a net savings of $365,000. to the taxpayer. 4.) Cut town overstaffing, along with all public sector salaries, beneﬁts, pensions, and especially that bloated school budget. Then lower all commercial and residential taxes with plenty of money left to plow both sidewalks. That’s a start. I think the taxpayers would agree to any of these. I think the town should give the plowing duties back to the North Conway Water Precinct. Do you realize that taxpayers in the Conway Water Precinct pay for their own sidewalk see TELE-TALK page 8

plowing out of their precinct taxes and then pay for snow removal in North Conway from their town taxes? Double Taxed! To be fair, if the present method continues, the town should reimburse Conway Precinct Taxpayers for time spent removing snow when required which seems to be every snowstorm. This is Dick. The following Tele-Talk responses were posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page. The town cannot afford the lawsuits if pedestrians get hit. Not to mention we want people to come here. Snow-covered walks are not the impression I would want to take home with me. Especially if I wanted to shop. It would be nice if the store owners took it upon themselves to clear the area in front of their stores, and then it would take less time for the town guys. I typically avoid the village immediately after a storm because the sidewalks are not usually cleared well. Of course! Do you like to walk on the road? That is the dumbest question the CDS has ever asked. Wow! Not everybody owns a car, nor does the town have a bus. There’s a question. Should the town pay for a bus for people to get around a little bit easier? ( YES. ) You could take the route Portland has taken. Require landowners to keep the sidewalks in front of their own properties clear. But in Portland, in some places on main routes, the city plow dumps 3-6 feet of heavy frozen snow onto the sidewalk when they plow. No landowner can shovel or snow-blow that stuff. So, I think the town should keep the sidewalks clear, especially along Route 16. And they should do both sides of the road; there’s too much trafﬁc to safely cross. In the town in N.Y. where my daughter lives, the residents/ businesses are ﬁ ned if the walks aren’t shoveled in front of their place within a certain time. You can’t market yourself as a tourist town and then give them no where to walk! Clean the sidewalks and turn
allowing personal information to be given out to the general public. The copy of the Certiﬁ cate of Live Birth was volunteered by the president, himself. The town of Freedom would no more give me a copy of Mr. Shuff’s kids’ birth certiﬁ cate than would I give my Social Security Number to him. Identity theft is rampant throughout the country, even, possibly, for the president (though I believe the Secret Service may have some say in this). I hope that this allays any questions Mr. Shuff has, but I doubt he or the other birthers will let this rest. But I still say, just let it rest. Walter Davis North Conway
on the lights! It’s very unsafe at this time. Depends. Up in the village would be a good place to stop it because the people act like goats crossing the street. Let them herd the sidewalks clean. The stores should clear the sidewalks in front of their business, or get together and hire someone to do it. I’d rather see the town put money back into the police department. Yes! There are a lot of people in the valley that have no car. They have no choice but to walk. Also it is safer if you have a dog than them being close to the road and in danger of being hit. They already turned half the lights off in the town, so sidewalks are very very important to many! Windy. The controversy has to do with the east side of the strip, not in front of stores in town. Sidewalks in front of the Red Jacket, the cemetery, etc., don’t get cleared due to complex reasons explained in the paper earlier this week. Yes, the town should resolve those issues and keep all town walkways cleared. Perhaps the budget committee could get out their shovels and get to work on it personally? Clearing the snow for safety seems a basic obligation of town services. This is New England and we get snow. It shouldn’t be this hard to manage, nor should town ofﬁ cials and employees be rude and dismissive of the reasonable expectations of residents, tourists and business owners! One lawsuit for contributory negligence in an accident will wipe out any supposed “savings.” Penny wise and pound foolish! My ﬁ rst reaction was clear the sidewalks. In a perfect world that would occur. There also wouldn’t be any potholes or bumps in the road. And for the people who need to walk the strip on the sidewalk, the west side is kept clear. Nearly all the sidewalks in town are kept clear and there are a lot of sidewalks involved. A possible compromise might be alternating every year to the next which side of the strip is kept clear. Just a thought. It’s very difﬁ cult for people to cross Route 16 as it is, and with the mounds of snow it presents another hazard. The town will only learn when they are slapped
with a lawsuit because somebody or somebody’s child gets hit! GOD forbid! Let the budget committee get out there and shovel! Yes! We pride ourselves on this being a beautiful, tourist area during the winter months. In order to keep it safe and thriving, money spent on snow removal is an important piece. OK. We shut off the lights, stop plowing the sidewalks, close the dump on Sundays. What next? Are these going to be permanent adjustments to our lives, or a knee-jerk reaction to the current economic environment (which hasn’t really affected the valley like it has elsewhere, by the way)? When will we be getting these services back? I’m guessing never. Then what will be cut? The budget committee seems hell bent on dismantling the school system and elder care. What are we, the Amish for crying out loud? No, the town does not need to plow every side of the street. Some places along Route 16 people don’t even walk, so why keep clearing the sidewalks if no one is going to be walking on them. It’s winter; it’s not like people are going to be out walking around all the time. Save money; don’t plow every side of the street, only one side. We are also talking about public safety remember, though. Do we want our property taxes to go up? Do we want lights on the sidewalks? Do we want our teachers to get any raises? Do we need people getting run over and killed? Can we afford to open up the dump on Sundays? Can we afford to hire someone to handle the sidewalks on the strip? Do you think it is a good idea to ﬂ ash a gun in the statehouse? The answer to all these questions is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder should get out there and clear their own sidewalks. I recommend that the businesses on the strip want their customers to get safely to their stores, then ﬁ gure it out without costing the collaborative rest of us any more money. Here are some ideas for the committees of Conway to chew on. The way I see it, the strip businesses include many snow-clearing expenses on their business taxes — why not a small amount more? It’s called hiring the local worker, not saddle the town with more debt.
Martin taking a break as selectmen chairman CONWAY — Conway selectman Larry Martin is taking a break from his position as board chair for a few weeks. “I’m just taking a little personal time to regroup,” he said. “It’s been a tough year.” The difﬁ culties have been perACCIDENTS from page one
“The injuries were far less severe than we originally thought,” said Lt. Chris Perley of the Conway Police Department, “bells wrung, so to speak.” When emergency crews responded there were reports of someone lying in the road. Police were concerned someone was ejected from one of the SIDEWALKS from page one
Town engineer Paul DegliAngeli told selectmen that night that because of the topography it’s always been a ﬁ ght to keep that section of sidewalk clean. The town would throw the snow into the roadway because the other side is a steep hill, and the

vehicles, Perley said, but both drivers were wearing their seatbelts. The airbags deployed in both cars. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The accident was not the only one in the past few days. Jackson had a rollover on Carter Notch Road, and drivers in Conway were active as well. “We did have a busy week-
end with both DWI arrests and crashes,” Perley said. The snowbanks are high enough to impede visibility, he said, and people were rushing around to get ready for Sunday’s big game. Add to that Saturday night’s snow and visitors unfamiliar with local roads and it’s easy to see why there was an uptick, he said.
state would plow the snow back out of the sidewalk into the roadway. Now the selectmen will get a second opportunity to review the policy. This might be a good time for the town to consider making a comprehensive sidewalk snow removal policy, DegliAngeli said,
as currently decisions are made on a case by case basis. The town has added miles of sidewalk in recent years, he said, including on to the west side of the section of road in question. It’s time to expand the winter maintenance policy to include sidewalks, he said, “and then fund the effort.”

Tamworth man pleads guilty to mortgage scams BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
OSSIPEE – A Tamworth man has pled guilty to several felony charges regarding mortgage scams he committed against deaf people. Court, Eric Eliason, 31, of Tamworth, pleaded guilty Monday in Carroll County Superior Court to two charges of untrue statement, a charge of theft by deception, and two misdemeanors (for failing to have proper licenses).
Eliason was arrested and charged in February of 2009 in connection with crimes he committed through his business, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Mortgage Consultants, which was based out of his home on Page Hill. For example, the theft charge states Eliason took $3,500 from a couple for a loan modiﬁcation that he didn’t do. One charge of untrue statement was for telling the victims their chances for a modiﬁcation looked good. The other untrue
statement charge regarded an e-mail he drafted about an another couple’s application fee. Judge Steven Houran sentenced Eliason to nine months in the Carroll County House of Corrections with all but 50 days suspended. He was given credit for 10 days of pretrial conﬁ nement. His 40 days of incarceration will start on Feb. 21. Plus, Eliason will have to pay $5,800 in restitution to two sets of victims. The
judge also attached a $750 ﬁne but suspended it for good behavior. He will be on probation for two years. New Hampshire Assistant Attorney General Karen Gorham prosecuted the case. She withdrew a charge of fraudulent business practice. Last year, a judge ordered Eliason to live at his parents’ house in Barnstead if he was to be free on bail. Eliason is hard of hearing himself and required assistance during his court proceedings.
How much does it cost for Legislators to ﬁle a bill in Concord? BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
OSSIPEE — State lawmakers were quizzed on how much it costs to ﬁ le a bill in Concord during a meeting of the legislative delegation on Monday. Efﬁngham resident Maureen Spencer asked the question during the public comment portion of the meeting. "I was just shocked with the prices I got," said Spencer. "I understand not all these bills get ﬁ led. I understand they cost anywhere between $200 and $2,300 based on how much work the lawyers do... I have 55 pages of 875 bills up for consideration. That's a lot of money." Rep. Joe Fleck (R-Wakeﬁ eld) responded by saying he asked the direc-
tor of legislative services about that. Fleck conﬁrmed there is a range of cost from minor amendments to bills that can get complicated. The cost per bill would be difﬁ cult to determine. Fleck said the highest cost he heard would be about $800 per bill. But no one is sitting there with a time clock to ﬁgure it out. "Mrs. Spencer's concern is a very legitimate one," said Fleck. "It's the cost of government and we want to know what it is." But Fleck said the best approach would be for the leadership of both houses take a look at proposed bills before they are ﬁ led. Otherwise, it would take a sophisticated procedure to ﬁnd the answer. Several representatives had varying
thoughts about the issue. Rep. Dino Scala (R-Wakeﬁeld) agreed that the leadership is looking for duplication and what bills are worth pursing. Scala estimated the cost at about $700. Rep. David Babson (R-Ossipee) said he heard the answer is somewhere between $1,500 and $1,700. Babson said one solution could be to limit each representative to ﬁling two bills. Rep. Karen Umberger (R-Kearsarge) said it's difﬁcult to know how much of a legislative services staff person's time is devoted to processing bills as opposed to doing other tasks. The number of sponsors can impact the cost because every sponsor must be mailed a copy of the bill and must agree to changes. If someone makes an edit than the process has
to repeat. Now, the number of cosponsors has been increased to 10. Rep. Frank McCarthy (R-Conway) said each state representative gets $100 per year and each legislative staff member gets paid a set amount per week. "So, if you take the total number of bills and the total cost to run the legislative ofﬁce than you can come up with an average cost per bill, but it's going to cost the same whether its one bill or 1,000 bills," said McCarthy. "It's going to cost the same because the people in that ofﬁce will be paid whether they are working on a bill or not." Later, McCarthy added that the more bills are ﬁled than the less they cost on average.

Love In The SUN Sweethearts since 1947 With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time for a romantic look at that “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” through the eyes of local couples, culminating in Saturday’s edition of our annual “Love in the Sun,” in which readers express their devotion to their loved ones. Today’s couple is Carol and Ed Westervelt of North Conway. BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
The Water Is Wide “The water is wide I can’t cross over And neither have I, wings to ﬂy Build me a boat That can carry two And both shall row My love and I.” — Traditional ••• CONWAY — Other than a brief hiatus after his senior year when he graduated and went off to join the Marines, Carol and Ed Westervelt of Kearsarge Road have been rowing that love boat together since their high school sweetheart days back in Neptune, N.J. That was 1947, when Carol was 14 and Ed was 17. “We went steady my whole sophomore year and his senior year. But with him graduating and going away to join the Marines and my going off to college, I told him I did not want to be going steady,” says Carol. see WESTERVELTS page 12

But then the Korean War started the following December, and Carol found out Ed was being shipped overseas. “I went to his parents and got his address so I could write him. I told him I was thinking of him,” related Carol. When he came home from overseas in 1952, the young Marine called Carol at college in Allentown, Penn., to see if he could come visit her that weekend. Then a sophomore, she informed him that there were many house parties planned for that particular weekend, so that probably would not be the best time for a visit. Perturbed, the young Marine did not call her again. But, on a subsequent Thanksgiving visit home to a friend’s who lived in the same neighborhood as the young Marine, Carol opted to walk rather than drive there. As fate would have it, guess who was driving by? “He brought me home,” said Carol, “then he drove me back to college after the weekend was over.” They exclusively dated from then on. They became engaged that spring, and were married in December 1954. She was 21 and he was 24. Three grown children, four grandchildren and one great grandchild later, the Westervelts are still celebrating having re-found one another all those years ago. They moved to Mount Washington Valley in 1967 in search of a better life. They quickly became part of the valley’s social capital, volunteering for numerous charitable causes. She’s a sharpie, not only a former chamber of commerce executive assistant, but also the ﬁ rst and only woman president of the Eastern Slope Ski Club. A retired career phone company employee and Cranmore ski patrol alum, Ed is the epitome of the perfect gentleman. Together, they exemplify teamwork, whether in their living room, or out on the town, where they are known as avid valley volunteers who have helped out with just about every event from Mud Bowl to this past weekend’s Race to Beat Cancer at Cranmore. On Tuesdays, they volunteer together at Memorial Hospital. They underscore that their relationship is one of mutual respect and a love for family. “We never go to bed mad at one another,” says Ed.
“He always pulls my chair out for me, even at home. He always opens the car door for me,” says Carol. Certainly, they admit, there are times when they disagree. But when waves rock their rowboat, they have learned over a lifetime of ups and downs not to sweat the small stuff. “We have been through too much together. As you get older, there are a lot of challenges,” says Carol, “but we can sort of laugh about it together.” She jokes that she “let him have four years of retirement by himself” before she retired. Ed retired from the phone company on Dec. 1, 1988, and he went to work for the Cranmore ski patrol Dec. 15 of that year. He served on the patrol until 2000. Carol worked for the law ofﬁce of the late Bill Paine when she ﬁ rst came to the valley, then served at the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce from 1979 to 1989. She then worked at The Reporter for a few years, and then at Cranmore skier services for four years before retiring in 1997. Since that time, in between their busy lives as valley volunteers and grandparents, they have enjoyed many great vacations together, with their most enjoyable excursion being a cross-country trip together in 1999. Most recently, to celebrate his 80th birthday last April, she surprised him by planning a vacation to Puerto Rico, where they toured the island of Vieques, where he had been stationed on maneuvers during his Marine Corps years. They also visited St. Marten, always one of their favorites. “We are each other’s best friend. When I have something to share, if I couldn’t tell Ed, I couldn’t tell anybody,” says Carol. Adds Ed, “We have been very fortunate, very fortunate. We have had some bumpy spots, but there was always a lot of give and take on both sides, and I think that is what has made it go. We have three wonderful children, and now great grandchildren. I would say it has been a good marriage. I would have no objections to any of it.” Joking that “he just does what she tells me to do!,” Ed said the key is to not hold grudges. Or keep score. “You’ve got to be able to say all right, I made a mistake, I’m sorry, now let’s move on,” said Ed. “That’s been a big thing with our marriage. Nobody’s perfect — I’m not! The only guy I know who’s perfect is the good Lord upstairs.” “Plus,” adds Carol, “we have fun together. We really do.”

Alpine Eagles ready for State Meet Week
Kennett dominates the Pre-States BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — State Meet Week has arrived for the Kennett High girls and boys alpine teams. The Eagles are a handful of good runs away from capping off undefeated seasons. The Kennett boys, who are the defending state champs, will be in action ﬁ rst, competing in giant slalom and slalom at Waterville Valley today with the action slated to start at 10 a.m.
“Things are looking good for this week and our chances in the state championships, but like I’ve told the kids a million time we have ski solid, consistent and as a team. We are our biggest enemies and if we’re all focused and skiing hard, things should end well.” The KHS girls, who ﬁ nished second to Plymouth last winter, will look to claim their crown on Thursday on their home mountain at Cranmore. The giant slalom is their ﬁrst event at 10 a.m. “Things are looking good for this week and our chances in the state championships,” Laurel Zengilowski, head ski coach at Kennett High, said, “but like I’ve told the kids a million time we have ski solid, consistent and as a team. We are our biggest enemies and if we’re all focused and skiing hard, things should end well.” Teams scheduled to compete in the State Meet against Kennett include Bedford, Bishop Brady, ConVal, Hanover, Hollis-Brookline, John Stark, Kingswood, Laconia, Lebanon, Milford, Pembroke, Plymouth, Souhegan and Windham. see ALPINE page 15
Benson, LaLiberte win Pre-States easily BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Kennett High boys and girls cross country teams made the most of their ﬁ nal race before the State Meet this Wednesday. Racing Thursday in North Conway Whitaker Woods in the Pre-States, the Eagles thoroughly dominated. The meet, originally scheduled for tomorrow, but pushed back a day due to the snowstorm, limited the ﬁeld to just three schools — Kingswood, Bedford and the host Eagles. Concord, Plymouth, Lebanon, Hanover, Souhegan and Sunapee are expected to come to Whitaker Woods this Wednesday for the State Meet. The ﬁrst race is set for 10 a.m. Teams will ski a freestyle and a classic race — one in the morning and one in the afternoon, starting at 1 p.m. The Kennett boys took the top ﬁve spots in the 5K freestyle Wednesday. Sophomore Torin LaLiberte led the way for the Eagles covering the course in 17:11. He was followed by Henney Sullivan, second, see KHS page 17

Eagles take flight at home; Cromwell second BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — After being postponed twice due to snow and then forced to do some frantic packing of the jump after the latest ﬂ akes graced the area, Kennett High was ﬁ nally able to host its one and only meet of the season on Friday. It was the ﬁ nal tune-up for the State Meet, which will be held at Proctor Academy on Friday. The Eagles, who have won the last two state crowns, ﬁnished third on the night out of ﬁve schools. Hanover took the top spot with 376 points followed by Concord, 366; Kennett, 365.5; Plymouth, 359.5; and Sunapee, 180. “Thank you all so much for coming to our meet,” Chip Henry, Eagles’ head coach, who along with his jumpers worked tirelessly Thursday to get the jump ready, packing over a foot of fresh snow on the hill. “I was very nervous about the conditions with the recent snow but everything seemed to work out just
ﬁne.” There were 34 jumpers on the night as Hanover’s Sam Shaprio won the meet with a score of 103 points. Jumpers top two of three jumps based on distance and judging, are scored in order to determine ﬁ nal placings. Shaprio’s jumps were 53 (30.5 in distance and 22.5 from the judges); 50 (29 in distance and 21 from the judges); and 48 (29.5 in distance and 18.5 from the judges). Duncan Cromwell, of Kennett, was second on the night, scoring 100 (51.5 and 48.5), while Concord’s Chris Rydel rounded out the top three with 96 (48.5 and 47.5). Hanover’s top four jumpers placed ﬁ rst, seventh, eighth and 12th to secure ﬁ rst as a team. Concord’s top four jumpers were third, sixth, 11th and 21st. Kennett’s four best on the night were second, ninth, and two tied for 13th. see next page

The State Meet is Friday at 6 p.m. at Proctor Academy in Concord. ALPINE from page 14
The Eagles were rock solid on Friday in the PreStates with the boys and girls taking the team honors. “A beautiful day at Cranmore,” Zengilowski said. “Everyone skied well, especially since some of our kids were off at ski week. Kurt Niiler, Matt Halupowski, Amber McPherson and Elizabeth Welch did great, along with some support from the rest of the team. Our depth continues to save us, even when we have some second run mistakes.” The KHS boys won the slalom and GS to total 778 points in the six school meet. The Eagles were followed by Lebanon, 721; Kingswood, 711; Plymouth, 708; John Stark, 524; and Laconia, 417. Individually in the GS, Matt Halupowski, of Kennett, captured ﬁ rst place with a two-run combined time of 90.27. He had the fastest two runs of the day in 45.63 and 44.64. Hot on his skis was Niiler, who claimed second in 90.8 while Lebanon’s Micah Berman rounded out the top three in 91.59. see ALPINE page 17

Raiders joust Knights on Senior Night Ten Raiders qualify BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy boys’ basketball team gained a much need 52-45 win at home on Saturday night in a make-up contest against Poland. The win completed a three games in three days journey and followed losses on Thursday and Friday nights against Greely and Wells, respectively. The Raiders enter the ﬁnal week of their season at 3-13 with games at Lake Region today and at York on Friday. The Raiders held a 13-10 lead at the end of the ﬁrst quarter against Poland, but fell behind 26-22 at the half. The Raiders outscored the Knights 15-6 in the third period and took control of the contest. Leading 37-32 entering the fourth quarter, Fryeburg expanded its lead by two points for the win. Sophomore point guard Bright Amoako played a vital role in the third quarter, according to head coach Sedge Saunders. “He led the surge in the by pushing the ball and getting to the foul line,” he said. Amoako led the Raiders with 19 points. Florian Forsting and Colby Locke added 16 and 11 points, respectively, from their post positions. The trio led the Raiders in this win, but ninth grader Walker Mallory contributed when he went 5-6 from the foul line in the fourth quarter. Locke and Forsting, still learning to play along side one another, reminded Saunders of what could have been had Forsting not been injured most of the year, “Colby and Florian both had good games. We had a size advantage and we exploited it. The two of them are starting to learn how to play well together.” Coach Sedge Saunders felt the Raiders showed character in the win over Poland, “To get a win on the third game day in a row showed toughness.” The win took on a special ﬂ avor, as the Raiders celebrated Senior Night. Saunders shared thoughts on the group playing their ﬁ nal home game. He started with Colby Locke. “Colby has been consistent through the year,” he said. “He is one of the leading rebounders in the league. In fact, he could win the Western Maine Conference rebounding title. He has also scored points for us. He had a really good senior year.” Pet Boarding

Saunders also noted the contributions of Ian Sundgren and Zach Rowland. “Ian hustles like crazy,” he said. “He will do anything that you ask him to do. You couldn’t ask for a better teammate than Zach Rowland. He works hard every day in practice. He is the loudest player on the bench. He always keeps his head up and supports everyone. He has worked hard for four years and represents the program well. He has started the last three games of the year and he has given us good minutes.” Although the Raiders played well at Wells on Friday night, they were unable to pull off the upset. Amoako led the Raiders at Wells on Friday night as well draining 17 points, while Locke worked underneath for 16 points. Shooting guard Mike Costa sank three three-pointers and a bucket for 11 points. On this night, however, the Raiders had no answer for Warrior Alex Furness, who ﬁnished with 38 points. The Raiders trailed at Wells 29-20 at the half, and cut the lead by two during the third quarter and trailed 48-41 entering the ﬁ nal frame. Wells extended their lead during the fourth and won 66-53. Saunders did not feel that the scoring margin reﬂected the Raiders’ effort. “We played pretty well against Wells,” he said. “It was a seven point game at the end of three quarters. We really went at them. They stretched the lead out at the end, but I thought we really competed. We made some bad turnovers that led to easy points for them, but other than that we played well against a tourney bound team.” On Thursday, the Raiders started their three-day journey with a 58-36 loss at Greely. The Raiders fell behind to the Rangers 13-6 in the ﬁ rst quarter and then were outscored 21-7 in the second quarter to trail 34-13 at half. Amoako ﬁ nished with 14 points and Forsting added nine in the loss. Saunders showed some understanding of the Raiders showing against the powerful Rangers. “This was our ﬁrst game in nine days. We were sluggish and they are a really good team. We started 1-14 from the ﬂoor and it became one of those games.” Looking ahead, Saunders said of the upcoming rivalry game with Lake Region, “We always want to get Lakers.”

for the State Meet BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — Although a win at a regional meet is signiﬁcant, the primary goal for individual wrestlers is to qualify for the State Meet. It’s there that individuals and teams set their sights on at the beginning of the year, and with each wrestler that qualiﬁes at regionals, another individual is one step closer to his goal, and that individual’s team is more capable of scoring points at the championships. With 10 Raiders placing in the top four of their weight class, Fryeburg Academy will have a strong showing at the State Meet, and it is likely that some will reach their elusive goal of a state championship, while others will gain an invaluable experience. At Rumford on Saturday at the Western Maine Class B Wrestling Regional Championship Meet, Mt. Valley won the competition handily with seven regional champions, one second place ﬁnisher, three third place ﬁ nishes, and a fourth place ﬁ nish for a total of 234 team points. Fryeburg Academy ﬁ nished with 150.5 points for a second place ﬁ nish at the regional meet, their strongest showing in recent years. Raider wrestlers qualifying for the State Meet included regional winners Connor Sheehan (103), Jake Thurston (130) and Stefan Emery (152). Peter Bacchiocci placed second at 145, while Matt Frost (112) ﬁnished third. Ryan Buzzell (125), Kirk Hubbard (135), C.J. Bartlett (140), Nate Hill (171) and Ian MacFawn (189) all ﬁnished fourth. The Raiders will travel to Augusta Saturday for the State Meet, where all classes will wrestle for individual and team state championships.
Raiders see post-season hopes falter with losses FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy girls’ basketball team lost at home to Wells on Friday night and at Greely on Thursday. The two losses dropped the Raiders to 5-11 and likely eliminated them from any shot at post-season play. Despite the setbacks, the Raiders, a young club, have played well, and they have shown promise along the way. Against Wells, Fryeburg fell behind early and trailed 17-7 after one quarter. The Raiders fell further behind in the second quarter and trailed at half 32-17. The game ﬁnished 48-33. Katie Heggie led the Raiders with 14 points, and Maggie McConkey chipped in another nine. At Greely on Thursday, the Raiders stayed with the hosts for a half, and trailed 25-18 to the 12-3 Rangers. Greely then outscored the girls from Fryeburg 33-7 in the second half for a 58-25. Heggie and Skye Dole each scored six points for the Raiders who struggled to mount much offense against Greely. Fryeburg is at Lake Region today hosts York this Thursday with the varsity to tip-off at 6:30 p.m.

of Eastern Freeride Tours at a variety of ski resorts. This past weekend Robert placed 14th landing his first 900 (two and half times around), Boo placed 20 and they advanced to the next competition. Boo also placed third at the Bethel Rail Jam Winter Festival. I have no idea what his trick was but if you have seen Boo jump at King Pine you know it was likely to be jaw dropping. Boo’s sister Isabelle, a freshman at Gould Academy, is currently placed 10th in the entire nation in her age group in alpine. She scored first place this past weekend in overall combined at Shawnee. Keep up the great work all you young athletes and students. Eight fabulous heart baskets were made at Janet Johnson’s basket class this past weekend. The next class is Saturday, March 5, at 10:30 a.m. at the town hall. We'll be making a large swing handle basket. It's pretty big and will take four to five hours to make. We'll take a break for this class so plan on bringing lunch. It is a great basket to use as a knitting basket or carry all. The cost is $40. Register by calling Janet at 539-7757. The Freedom Food Pantry thanks all who continue to contribute both food items and monetary donations. Our numbers are still on the rise, and your generosity means more than you know to the folks struggling to make ends meet. Contributions of hearty soups are particularly needed at this time.

Gibson Center auction tonight CONWAY — The Gibson Center for Senior Services annual auction is slated for Tuesday, Feb. 8 at the Red Jacket Mountain View on Route 16 in North Conway. “We absolutely HAD to move it,” said Executive Director George Cleveland. “It was great showing off the Gibson dining room and the artistry of our kitchen, but we were getting too squooshed. The folks at the Red Jacket were all over the idea of moving it there and we couldn’t be happier. We’ll still have great food and great things up for sale, but there will be more room.” This 11th annual auction will feature at least 150 silent auction items and at least a dozen
spectacular items at the live auction. Karen James, auction coordinator, said that this year’s auction lives up to the standards of odd and eclectic items that the Gibson Auction is known for. Some of the items include a large cedar rocker from R&R Woodworking in Jackson, a pair of tickets to see the Bruins play the Sabres on March 3, donated by former Sabre Craig Muni, three cubic yards of dark bark from L.A. Drew, a three-night anytime vacation from the Eastern Slope Inn Resort. There are also gift certiﬁ cates, crafts and some of the most outlandish and delicious food baskets imaginable. Fuel oil, a skating party for 50, beauty products, berry bowls,
a Nan White watercolor; it’s an exhausting list. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. in Hampshire Hall on the lower ﬂoor of the Red Jacket. Admission is just $10 per person and hors d’oeuvres will be available all evening. It will be a fun night and the Gibson Center promises you’ll be home early. All proceeds from the Gibson Center Auction will go towards providing meals and Meals on Wheels to seniors in the northern Carroll County area. The Gibson Center has been serving seniors since 1979. They are located at the corner of Main and Grove Streets in North Conway Village. For more information call 3563231.
Tin Mountain volunteer coffee break is today ALBANY — Tin Mountain volunteers and potential volunteers are invited to come to Tin Mountain at 10 a.m. on the second Tuesday of the month. Anyone attending a Tin Mountain event recently is aware of the time and energy volunteers devote to that organization. From hosting evening programs to stafﬁ ng special events to helping out with building and site maintenance, Tin Mountain relies heavily on an energetic and passionate volunteer base. That volunteer time has made Tin Mountain a much better organization. In an effort to better serve and support the dedicated crew of volunteers as well as recruit
new volunteers, Tin Mountain is introducing the morning coffee break. Volunteers are invited to come to Tin Mountain at 10 a.m. on the second Tuesday of the month, every month, to enjoy a cup of coffee and learn about current volunteer opportunities. It is important to point out that all are always welcome to stop by Tin Mountain, but the monthly morning coffee break will provide a speciﬁ c time to highlight the volunteer base. Those interested are welcome to stay just for a cup of coffee (or tea!) and conversation or stick around to help out on some of the current volunteer opportunities. There also will be a monthly e-mail sent

by Darby Conley
By Holiday Mathis have impressive skills, but you still need to add a few more to your arsenal in order to succeed in your chosen arena. Consider learning new software or taking a course in public speaking. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don’t always feel that you tﬁinto the conventional molds that others seem to embody so easily. You’ll express your more unique and possibly unpopular views today and will be accepted anyway. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). When someone says you can’t do it, that’s precisely when you think you absolutely must do it. In this context, proving someone wrong is one of the supreme pleasures of life! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a one-track mind, though today it is not likely on the track that others want it to be on. Instead of ﬁ ghting it, see what happens when you indulge your strong will to see where it will lead you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Three is the magic number for you, and you will excel in a trio of some kind. There really is a value to you in this regard that cannot be duplicated by you alone or with only one other person. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 8). You give so much of yourself, and this year loved ones give back twofold. You’ll make a magniﬁcent discovery in March. April brings emotional sunshine and satisfying work. May is your chance to spread your wings. There’s an unexpected windfall in July. Someone needs you, and you deliver in October. Aries and Sagittarius people are crazy for you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 9 and 18.
HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). Routine work will be healthy for your creativity. As you follow the same steps over and over, your mind will roam to dreamy places where solutions abound. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). New business will come to you because you have a reputation for being practical and down to earth. You will methodically turn each new lead into a loyal customer. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will be improvement-oriented, and you will ﬁ nd ways of streamlining your daily tasks. Others will imitate your style, especially at work. You will bring your colleagues up to the maximum level of efﬁciency. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are a genius at public relations today and will present your work and life in such a light as to get exactly the response you want. Your most brilliant work happens when you shoot from the hip. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your heart’s desire is to reach the top. Not everyone has this wish, though the ones who do will give you stiff competition. In the end, your victory will be sweet because you worked so hard for it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have a high tolerance for discomfort and should by no means take advantage of this quality. You are as deserving of pleasure as anyone else. Indulge yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may feel uncomfortable being fussed over, but that won’t stop your friends from doing just that. Be patient and graceful. Soon the attention will leave you, and you can relax. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

Today is Tuesday, Feb. 8, the 39th day of 2011. There are 326 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Feb. 8, 1910, the Boy Scouts of America was incorporated. On this date: In 1587, Mary, Queen of Scots was beheaded at Fotheringhay Castle in England after she was implicated in a plot to murder her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. In 1693, a charter was granted for the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg in the Virginia Colony. In 1837, the Senate selected the vice president of the United States, choosing Richard Mentor Johnson after no candidate received a majority of electoral votes. In 1924, the first execution by gas in the United States took place at the Nevada State Prison in Carson City as Gee Jon, a Chinese immigrant convicted of murder, was put to death. In 1960, work began on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located on Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Los Angeles. In 1968, three college students were killed in a confrontation with highway patrolmen in Orangeburg, S.C., during a civil rights protest against a whites-only bowling alley. In 1989, 144 people were killed when an American-chartered Boeing 707 filled with Italian tourists slammed into a fog-covered mountain in the Azores. In 2007, model, actress and tabloid sensation Anna Nicole Smith died in Florida at age 39 of an accidental drug overdose. One year ago: Endeavour and six astronauts rocketed into orbit, hauling a new room and observation deck for the International Space Station. The Nielsen Co. estimated that 106.5 million people watched the New Orleans Saints upset the Indianapolis Colts, beating the 1983 “M-A-S-H” finale, which had 105.97 million viewers. U.S. Rep. John Murtha, 77, died at a hospital in Arlington, Va., of complications from gall bladder surgery. Today’s Birthdays: Composer-conductor John Williams is 79. Former ABC News anchor Ted Koppel is 71. Actor Nick Nolte is 70. Comedian Robert Klein is 69. Actorrock musician Creed Bratton is 68. Singer Ron Tyson is 63. Actress Brooke Adams is 62. Actress Mary Steenburgen is 58.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren
INDEPENDENT WOMAN CAN’T FIND THE RIGHT MIX IN MEN
DEAR ABBY: I’m an independent, 41-year-old woman who attracts men who are 10 to 13 years younger than I am. I’m not interested in them because I feel they are only after one thing. Another problem is, when I start getting close to a man my own age, he always makes me feel “smothered.” It seems I’m either loved too much or not at all. Is there a balance, or am I just afraid of getting close? -AVOIDING GETTING HURT IN MILWAUKEE DEAR AVOIDING: I suspect that it’s the latter. Not all younger men are interested in only one thing. Some are, but not all. And men your age who are ready for commitment are not “smothering” you -- but they do seem to want something you are unwilling or unable to give. Unless you can determine what’s holding you back, you will remain single and looking. A psychologist could help you get to the heart of the matter quickly, and that’s what I’m recommending so I won’t hear from you with this same problem when you’re 50. DEAR ABBY: After nine years of marriage, my husband, “Brett,” and I welcomed our ﬁrst child 10 months ago. We are
happy except for a problem with Brett’s mother, “Carol.” Carol and I have had a rocky relationship, although in recent years things seem to have gotten better. My complaint (and Brett’s as well) with Carol is that she is intrusive. She always wants to be in the middle of everything and won’t ease up on “mothering” Brett. Furthermore, Carol has decided our child should call her “Grandmommy” or “Mommy Smith.” I object to that name because I feel “Mommy” is the one name reserved for me. I don’t mind “Grandma,” “Grandmother” or “Granny.” But Carol won’t back down. We tried coming up with another name, but she has ignored our suggestions. Am I being unreasonable? Please advise. -- THE ONLY MOMMY HERE DEAR ONLY MOMMY: You and Brett need to calm down. Your child won’t be doing a lot of talking for a while. And when your baby does, he or she isn’t going to be calling Carol by any multisyllabic appellations. Your child will probably call her a name that’s easy to pronounce and entirely original.
