CONWAY — Bob Burns, the current all-time leader in New Hampshire school boy baseball victories in a storied career at Kennett High that spans more than four decades, will make his 41st season his last on the diamond for the Eagles this spring. With little fanfare, the Conway School Board voted 5-0 (Randy Davison and John Skelton not present) to accept Burns' planned retirement Monday night. It was grouped with three other personnel matters.

Dr.Jerry K nirk

Bob Burns

Burns, who recently turned 70, said the timing is right for him to step down. "It's time," he said by phone, Wednesday and laughed when he was told that 70 was just a number. "It's a number all right. I think everyone knows it's going to happen now and the school can plan for the future. It's hard to believe it's been 41 years; some days it seems like just yesterday." The Kennett High baseball team will open its spring sports season this coming Monday and once again Burns is "cautiously optimistic" about the Eagles' chances in 2012. see BURNS page 8

The vote missed the needed 60 percent majority by .4 of a vote. "I've never seen a less than one vote differential," said moderator George Epstein. At press time, the see MADISON page 11

Looking for flotsam of a disaster SAN FRANCISCO (NY Times) — John Anderson, a plumber by trade and a beachcomber by passion, has been trolling the shores of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State for more than three decades, and along the way has discovered almost every kind of flotsam one can imagine: toys, refrigerators, even the occasional message in a bottle. But in recent months, Anderson has been making a new, and somewhat surprising, find: dozens of buoys marked with Japanese writing, set adrift, he believes, by last year’s catastrophic tsunami. “That wave wiped out whole towns, I’m thinking just about anything could show up here,” said Anderson, 58, of Forks, Wash. “I’ve heard people talking about floating safes full of Japanese money.” The tsunami — which struck after a massive offshore earthquake last March 11 — sent a wall of water sweeping across much of Japan’s eastern coastline and generated more than 20 million tons of debris, a jumbled mass of houses, cars, boats and belongings. And while it’s not clear what percentage of that wreckage was sucked back out to sea and what remains afloat, what is certain is that some of it is slowly making its way to American shores.

Obama promises thorough inquiry into Afghan attack WASHINGTON (NY Times) — President Obama pledged on Tuesday that a thorough investigation would be conducted into the bloody rampage by an American soldier in Afghanistan. “The United States takes this as seriously as if this was our own citizens and our own children who were murdered,” Obama said, in his first public remarks since the shooting took place on Sunday. He said he was “heartbroken by the loss of innocent life,” calling it outrageous and unacceptable. “It’s not who we are as a country, and it does not represent our military,” he added.

The president said the Pentagon would follow the facts “wherever they lead us,” though he offered no new details about the identity of the soldier or the circumstances of the attack. Obama said he met on Monday with the American military commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John R. Allen, and with the ambassador, Ryan Crocker. Obama insisted that the furor stirred up by the rampage would not alter the policy or timetable of the United States as it winds down the war in Afghanistan. The administration, he said, was on track to withdraw 23,000 troops from the country by the end of the summer.

Obama campaign fears uphill climb raising money (NY Times) — The warning came from David Plouffe, President Obama’s top political adviser: The Koch brothers and Republican “super PACs” have pledged hundreds of millions of dollars to defeat Mr. Obama, he told a dozen wealthy Democrats gathered in a Silicon Valley office suite. Do not believe what you read about all the money the president will raise himself, Mr. Plouffe urged them. He

needs your help. With the general election campaign just a few months away, Obama’s allies are under growing pressure to raise money rapidly for Democraticleaning independent groups, warning his supporters that the huge cash advantage mustered by Republican groups could prove decisive this fall, overwhelming Obama despite his own formidable fund-rais-

ing apparatus. While Obama’s decision last month to endorse the super PACs’ fund-raising — a reversal of his longstanding opposition to campaign spending by independent groups — has made potential donors more receptive to Priorities USA Action and similar groups, few so far have written the kind of six- and seven-figure checks that Republican super PACs are collecting.

Syria expands assault, hitting rebel enclaves BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Emboldened by faltering diplomacy and a Russian pledge to keep supplying weapons, Syria’s armed forces assaulted insurgent enclaves in the northern part of the country on Tuesday, invading the city of Idlib in an expanded campaign to crush the year-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad. Opposition activists reported heavy shelling by army tanks and artillery both in areas around Idlib in the north and around Homs, the city in central Syria that government forces claimed to have already pacified after weeks of shelling. There were unconfirmed reports that Syrian forces had seized all or part of Idlib, a center of anti-Assad resistance and haven for the Free Syrian Army, an insurgent group of former soldiers. Hundreds of refugees were reported fleeing for the borders of Lebanon and Turkey, activists said. The United Nations refugee agency said at least 30,000 Syrians had fled to neighboring countries since the conflict began in March 2011 and at least 200,000 more were internally displaced.

Lawmaker calls for return to civil unions CONCORD — As soon as next week, lawmakers could vote on a bill that would repeal New Hampshire’s two-year-old same-sex marriage law. Backers of the bill said same-sex marriage would be replaced by civil unions and eventually put the issue to vote. “I’m ready to accept and implement the will of the people on marriage in our state,” said bill sponsor Rep. David Bates, R-Windham. Bates said he believes the issue of granting marriage rights to same-sex couples should be put to a popular vote. “If these opponents of traditional marriage really believe their own propaganda, they should be eager to join with me in putting this question on the ballot in November in order to prove their point,” he said. The question would appear as a nonbinding referendum on the November ballot to let voters have their say on the issue. But that would only happen if lawmakers first pass the bill that would repeal same-sex marriage and if that bill avoids a promised veto by Gov. John Lynch. Despite a recent Granite State Poll

that shows roughly two-thirds of voters don’t favor repeal, advocates of same-sex marriage called Bates’ idea a gimmick. “The polls have been crystal clear,” said Tyler Deaton of Standing Up For NH Families. “I believe this referendum is a distraction from the core issue that’s before the legislators. They are not voting on a referendum. They are voting on whether or not they are going to take away rights from real people.” As for the nearly 2,000 same-sex couples who have wed under the law, their marriages would not be affected by the repeal. The bill also wouldn’t become effective until next year, so lawmakers could have the chance to react to the results of the nonbinding referendum. “We are here to do their business, so it’s an insult to the people of this state for him to be saying it’s a distraction to ask the people what they want on the issue of marriage,” Bates said. Lynch promised as recently as four weeks ago to veto any legislation repealing same-sex marriage. —Courtesy of WMUR

Vote to remove summer road designation To the voters of Madison: In 2009, we first asked you to remove the summer highway designation from a section of Class V Lead Mine Road, to be effective in the winter of 20112012. Since then, we have built our home and are now living at 1227 Lead Mine Road. For that reason we are once again asking you to approve Warrant Article 22 at the March 17 Madison Town Meeting. 10 Reasons to Support Year-Round Maintenance of Part of Lead Mine 1. Snow-plowing this section of Lead Mine Road by the highway department will allow safe public’ access to the Goodwin Town Forest, Cook Pond and the adjacent Nature Conservancy land in the winter months, so everyone can enjoy these assets all year long. 2. This section of Lead Mine Road is a dual-use road, as authorized by the Madison Board of Selectmen in 2011. Snowmobilers will keep their trail. 3. Not plowing this Class V town road benefits no one. 4. The Highway Department has plowed snow on this section several times

— safely, effectively, and without difficulty. 5. Your Road Agent has repeatedly testified that his crew can plow this section of Lead Mine Road within the existing highway maintenance budget. 6. Plowing this road will not increase anyone’s property taxes. 7. We have built a home on this section of Lead Mine Road and we received our occupancy permit from the Town on February 13,2012. We now reside there full time. 8. All residents who pay taxes and live on Class V town roads should have their roads plowed by the town. 9. This section of Lead Mine Road is wider and straighter than several other Class V roads that the highway department maintains during the winter. 10. There is only one family living on a Class V road that is not maintained in the winter by the town of Madison. Please pass Warrant Article 22. It is the fair thing to do. Michael and Donna Veilleux Madison

Vote down article changing Madison road agent position To the editor: On Madison Town Meeting day, March 17, we will be voting on whether to keep the road agent position elected or change to appointed. We should vote this down as I strongly believe that the people, as taxpayers, should be the ones to decide who they want to maintain their roads. Do not give up this right!

Keep this position elected because it should be your choice. Don’t let it be taken away and put in the hands of only two people! I’ve put my faith in you people for 23 years; it should be up to you people if and when to change your road agent. Bill Chick Sr., road agent (elected) Madison

Jackson back room decision lacks transparency To the editor: In 1984, the Towns of Bartlett and Jackson entered into an agreement for the operation of a combined transfer station on jointly-owned property on the Jackson-Bartlett line. The original contract called for the costs to be apportioned to each town based on equalized valuation. The station opened in 1991, but the original agreement was never fully followed. In fact, for the next 20 years the costs were maintained at an approximate 50/50 split. Over the years, certain selectmen tried to get the costs set to the original intent of the agreement but to no avail. Starting in 2004, our Jackson board of selectmen initiated the process of trying to get our transfer station partner to pay at the equalized valuation rate as stated in the agreement. Costs to Jackson over the 20 years appeared to be $400,000 to $800,000 more than the town should have paid. In 2010, Jackson went to court to seek a declaratory judgment on the contract and if the original wording remained binding on both towns. It was Bartlett s position that the agreement had been modified by the selectmen of both towns. It was Jackson s position that since the agreement contained a clause that allowed amendment only by a vote of each town at Town Meeting, any action by selectmen to amend the agreement was beyond their authority and, consequently, not binding. In March 2010, Jerome Doughherty IV became a selectman in Jackson and tried having the contract issue resolved without court action. When

John Allen joined the board in 2011, Selectman Dougherty re-doubled his efforts. I spoke at the Jackson town meeting in March of that year and asked “If there was going to be a new agreement would the town be permitted to vote on it” and later reiterated “would the selectmen allow the town to vote on termination of the original agreement and to vote on any new agreement.” Selectman Dougherty concluded “that when the time was right the selectmen would bring this to the town in the appropriate forum.” In a late evening non-public session on March 1, the new agreement apparently surfaced and had been signed by our transfer station partners two weeks before with no equalized valuation clause. After a closed-door discussion, the board went back into a brief public session where Selectman Dougherty and Selectman Allen signed the new agreement. Selectwoman Bea Davis refused to sign. There were no witnesses from the Jackson public to enjoy this democratic display! This was two weeks before our annual town meeting where a petitioned warrant article No. 6, signed by dozens of voters reads as follows, “To see if the town will vote to instruct the Selectmen not to enter into a new contract for municipal services at the Bartlett/Jackson transfer station extending beyond the current year.” So much for appropriate forums, so much for transparency, so much for civility!

Spencers seeking political points in an election year To the editor: I would like to respond to Maureen Spencer’s tactless and debased letter to the editor on March 7 in The Conway Daily Sun. First off, I have a phone for the mere reason I have children in school system and it is for safety and communication reasons. Second, Ms. Spencer has repeatedly badgered me about questions that often have no relevancy to the issues before the commission and as a Democratic activist who is seeking political points, neither I and nor should anyone act in concert with her shenanigans. Third, I am well informed on the issues with county government and aware of my surroundings at the

board meetings. I was elected to stop the over spending which has been on auto pilot over the past several years when the board was Democratically controlled. Fourth, the so call low morale of the county employees which you describe in your letter is Ms. Spencer’s own subjective opinion and it surely does not drop at the foot of one commissioner. Once again, the Spencers, who have unsuccessfully run for county commissioner in the past, are seeking political points in an election year, I hope the voters will see through this and lets continue the business of county government.

Tamworth school and SAU budgets pass BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

TAMWORTH —- Voters at annual school district meeting last week approved forming study committees to look at creating a cooperative

school district and leaving SAU 13 and rejoining SAU 9. Despite some efforts to lower the school's operating budget, the school board's $5,924,267 proposal passed by a voice vote. Tamworth's share of SAU 13's operating budget passed 109-2.

BURNS from page one

"We'll be fine," he said. "We've got a number of kids coming out who have played a lot of ball. I'm looking forward to getting started." Burns is the only baseball coach in New Hampshire to reach the 500-victory milestone. His teams have gone 500-305 since 1971. Aside from being perennially in the post-season, the Eagles have won two state championships in the Burns era. Burns collected win No. 500 in dramatic fashion last year on the final day of the regular season when Kennett also clinched a playoff berth with an 8-7 victory coming in the bottom of the 10th inning against St. Thomas. "This was a great game," Burns said immediately afterward. "It was probably one of the most pleasing wins of them all. Both teams hit well, fielded well and there was a ton of excitement. After coaching 800 games you think you would have experienced everything, but this is why I still do this. There was a lot happening. "I thought our team showed incredible character," he continued. "I've had such great kids over the years. I've been blessed to have been around such great people. It's very rewarding, especially to look around and see so many former players and families who came out to support us." "It was very special," said Linda, his wife, who did a lot of pacing, particularly in the final three extra innings. "It's always nice to win but this was very special. It was great to see good baseball being played. Bob puts so much into this game, I'm so happy for him. It was so nice to have Staci (their daughter) and her husband and their children there along with Brendan (their son) and his significant other. I don't know how many times on the ride home (Bob) said, 'We did it, we did it.' He was pretty emotional, that's what makes him." The Eagles scored two runs in the bottom of the 10th inning to win the game. They immediately celebrated with their coach, who remained in the third base coach's box after having just waved in the two runs. "I was there a little while," Burns said smiling. "I just said a little

prayer of thank you. I was happy and a bit emotional. Each kid only has four years to savor Kennett baseball; I've been blessed to have had 40 plus years." In February 2008, the Conway School Board voted unanimously to name the then new baseball field on the Redstone campus after Burns. Mike DiGregorio, a member of the Conway School Board in 2008, served on the naming committee which presented the recommendations to the full board. "Coach Burns has certainly given his whole life to Kennett baseball and deserves the honor of having the field named after him," he said at the time. The committee was charged with submitting three recommendations for school board consideration. The school board selected Robert Burns Sr. Varsity Baseball Field. "I'm very honored," Burns said in 2008 when notified of the naming. "The committee ran the idea by me once and I said no initially but my daughters, Margaret and Staci, were really the ones to convince me to accept. It's an honor and there are so many people who come to mind who helped me along the way. If I were to start naming names it might take a half hour to get through the list. There has still yet to be any sort of dedication ceremony in his honor, now four year later. Kennett High Principal Neal Moylan plans to rectify that. "We're calling it the Victory Tour," Moylan said, "and hopefully at the last home game we can have a ceremony and present Coach Burns with a plaque. Forty-one years with the Eagles is a tremendous accomplishment and we certainly want to recognize Bob."

It started around 9 a.m. and ended at 11:25 a.m. On Monday night, annual school district meeting voters passed everything on the warrant. Freedom's share of SAU 13's budget was approved 62-0. Residents also voted to increase the number of school board members from three to five.

Bartlett man charged with sexually assaulting child BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — A Bartlett man was arrested over the weekend following an investigation into allegations he sexually assaulted a young child. Patrick J. Phair, 43, was arraigned Monday on two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault forcible rape, a class A felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The complaints, filed at the Conway courthouse, allege that between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2009, Phair sexually assaulted a child under 10 years of age. The Conway Police Department put out a statement about the arrest Monday that said the detectives began investigating the alleged incidents on March 6 of this year. “As a result of the investigation the Conway Police Department detectives division applied for and was granted an arrest warrant for two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault for Patrick J. Phair.” The warrant, which was issued by the Conway court, was sealed after it was issued, a common

occurrence in sexual assault cases, particularly those involving children. The incidents were alleged to have happened in Conway, but Phair was arrested last Friday by the Bartlett Police Department. According to court documents Phair’s bail was set at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond. If released he will be forbidden from coming within 100 yards Patrick J. Phair of anyone under the age of 18. Phair’s next court date is scheduled for later this month. If he does post bail he will back before a judge on March 28, and if not he will be there on March 20. The Conway Police, meanwhile, said the two complaints may not be the end of this matter. “The investigation is still ongoing at this time and more charges may be pending,” the police statement said.

Two hurt in snowmobile accident off Bear Notch Road BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BARTLETT — Officials say inexperience contributed to a weekend snowmobile accident that sent two people to Maine hospitals in helicopters. Charles Robillard, 40, of North Attleborough, Mass., was driving and Susan Rouvelas, 43, of Cranston, R.I., was riding as a passenger when Robillard's machine went off the trail and hit a tree in the woods off Bear Notch Road on Saturday. Both suffered serious injuries. Robillard broke several ribs, and Rouvelas fractured her skull, one arm and several ribs. Robillard was rushed to Maine Medical Center in Portland by a DHART helicopter, while Rouvelas went by LifeFlight to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. “They’re in stable condition,” Fish and Game Sgt. Brian Abrams said on Monday. “It was a low-speed accident," he said. The machine itself was not badly damaged, and it did not ever go airborne. "If they had been travelling any faster the injuries would have much worse.” The two were part of a group of six that rented three snowmobiles from Northern Extremes in Bartlett, Abrams said. The other two drivers were both experienced snowmobilers, but this was Robillard’s first time driving a machine. From the start

he was having a hard time keeping up with his more experienced friends. About 35 minutes into their trip, Abrams said, the group was on the Upper Haystack Trail when they came to a sharp turn. “He failed to negotiate that turn,” Abrams said, and the machine left the trail and hit a tree. The first call for aid came in at 10:05 a.m. Abrams was already on the trail, along with conservation officer Alex Lopashanski. The two responded to find the other members of the group already providing aid. Jackson/Bartlett Ambulance, Bartlett Fire, North Conway Fire and North Conway Ambulance also responded, and by 11:10 a.m. Robillard was in the Bartlett Elementary parking lot getting loaded onto a helicopter. Fifteen minutes later it was Rouvelas who was being airlifted. Overall the rescue went very well, Abrams said, with excellent coordination between the local departments and the helicopter teams. “They just did an outstanding job." Both riders also made a smart choice, he said, by wearing helmets. “That made a huge difference.” Abrams stressed the importance of riding within the limits of the weakest member of any group. “It’s definitely something for people introducing new riders to remember,” he said.

Budget committee approves amended Conway budget BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — In a brief meeting following the deliberative town meeting session, the budget committee voted to approve the amended operating budget and a heavily revised police warrant article. The amended budget of $9,149,323, including $96,398 in increases for the town, police and library, passed by a vote of 9-4 with one abstention. The increase included money for streetlights, road salt and diesel, plus $21,000 to reinstate part of the $66,000 the budget committee cut from the police department budget. The two budget committee members most critical of the police budget, Karen Umberger and Joe Mosca, where not at the meeting, so they did not weigh in on the increase or the police warrant article. The police warrant article looking to get voter approval for a grant-funded police officer, mean-

while, was approved by 10-3 with one abstention. The vote came after the police commission made significant changes to the article following a letter last week from the U.S. Department of Justice informing them the grant will no longer pay for the full cost of hiring a new officer. The grant is now capped at $125,000, commissioner Theresa Kennett said, so instead of paying the salary and benefits of an officer for three years it works out to $41,666 a year. The rest of the bill will be the town’s responsibility. And there was another change, Kennett said. The job must now go to a military veteran who served on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001. Kennett read amended language for the warrant article to incorporate the changes, which passed without trouble. The department has not yet applied for the grant. The deadline is later this month, before the vote. Awards will not be announced until the end of summer.

MADISON from page one

school board's chair was getting a legal opinion about the withdrawal vote. The vote goes against the recommendation of a Madison study committee which voted 5-2 to recommend that the school district withdraw and join SAU 9. "It seemed clear to the study committee that there are significant cost savings available to the taxpayers of Madison by withdrawing from SAU 13 and joining SAU 9," the committee stated in its report. "The study committee was unable to find any countervailing facts with respect to the quality or value of education that argued against becoming a member of SAU 9. On the contrary, the test score data seemed to indicate that there probably would

be some educational advantage to leaving SAU 13 and joining SAU 9." Supporting withdrawal were study committee members: chairman Mike Benoit, Tiffiny Chase, David Downs, Sarah Parsons and Patti Rau. Voting against withdrawal were school board representatives Bruce Brooks and Ray O'Brien. Had the article passed, residents in SAU 9 towns would have voted on accepting Madison in 2013. Voters in each SAU 9 town would have needed to accept Madison by a 60 percent margin. Madison could have rejoined SAU 9 by July 1, of 2014. Madison's share of SAU 13 operating budget and school district operating budgets both passed. A warrant article for all-day kindergarten option at Madison Elementary failed 201 to 199.

A special thank you to Mike Pearson and the Jenkins-Newman Funeral Home for being so accommodating and compassionate in helping to coordinate all of Corey’s services. Additionally, thank you Father Chaney and St. Brenden’s Church for Corey’s services and the reception following the service. To the students, faculty, staff, parents, and friends of the Stewartstown Community School and the staff at the SAU 7 office thank you for your continued support, food, donations, and love throughout this difficult time. Finally, thank you to all our family and friends for being there for us during our time of need. We truly feel blessed to have such a wonderful group of people supporting us. God Bless, Normand, Debbie, Armand, and Chad Boivin

INVESTMENTS FOR THE REST OF US

The Bernanke Bubble BY DAVID F. BROCHU, CFP The stock market is firmly in the grip of a liquidity-fueled rally. $16 trillion – the current number – in new greenbacks dumped into the system has to go somewhere. The path of least resistance is to the financial markets. Amidst some pretty troubling news out of the Middle East and Europe, together with slowing growth in both China and Brazil, the stock and bond markets keep hitting new highs. You might think everything is rosy here, but you'd be wrong. Stubbornly high unemployment, massive federal deficits, bankrupt states and a housing market that will take generations to heal still hold a crippling grip on our economy. So what's driving our markets higher? Uncle Ben, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, has mandated it. How the Fed and its chairman control the amount of money that circulates through the system is a study in fanciful thinking. First amongst the Fed’s tools are the Fed’s Fund Rate David F. Brochu and Discount Rate. The Fed’s Fund Rate (FFR) is the rate banks charge each other to borrow money overnight. Banks borrow from each other when they need additional reserves to meet required levels. For example: if Bank A needs a billion overnight and Bank B has an extra billion, Bank B will loan to Bank A and Bank A will pay interest at the FFR. The Discount Rate is basically the same except that the loan is from the Fed directly. The Fed sets the rates on both of these loans. How? It makes them up. If the Fed wants more money in the system, it will lower the rates. Lower rates make it profitable for banks to borrow money from each other and then lend it out, in theory anyway. Low rates also allow banks to pay very low interest on consumer deposits. If the bank can invest the money somewhere else, say on deposit at the Fed, at a rate higher than what the bank pays depositors, then the bank can make money without taking any risk. If the bank actually makes a loan or two, then the bank’s profits can be tremendous. Big Ben can and does manipulate the stock market with the same tools. When rates are low, investors seek return in higher risk assets. By reducing rates, the Fed forces us to purchase investments that we otherwise wouldn’t. Think of it this way: if you need 3 percent on your investments to meet your needs and Certificates of Deposits (CDs) pay 3 percent, you can achieve your goals with very little risk. In the current environment, CDs pay very close to nothing, forcing you to invest in bonds and stocks of which dramatically increase your risk. The effect of the forced risk taking is that when the markets collapse again (which is inevitable), many people who can’t afford to lose money will. Instead of knowing their money is safe, those who can least afford it, will watch their life savings go up in smoke. The Fed doesn't do this by accident; it is a stated objective. Forced risk taking, in the opinion of the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, is fine as long as it serves some arcane model. If a few million people's lives see BROCHU page 15

Hannaford Supermarket donates $13,000 in product and cash to local food pantries SCARBOROUGH, Maine – Hannaford Supermarkets and its customers worked together to contribute more than $13,000 in product and cash donations to help feed hungry individuals in the North Conway area through the 2011 Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger campaign. The North Conway Hannaford

sold 1,208 Helping Hands boxes — full of the products that food pantries need the most. This total topped District 6 and triggered an additional $1,000 donation by Hannaford. Store manager Jeffrey Cox presented that donation to members of the Vaughn Community Center ($500) and Little Brown Church

Food Pantry ($500) last week. Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger raised $971,424 in product and cash donations for food-assistance programs in five states, including $261,000 in New Hampshire. The 2011 program took place from Oct. 30 to Dec. 31. see HANNAFORD page 13

Upper Saco Valley Land Trust hires first executive director CONWAY — The Upper Saco Valley Land Trust recently announced the hiring of William Abbott as its first full-time executive director since the founding of the non-profit conservation organization in 2001. The board of directors of the land trust established the position of executive director in recognition of the need to increase the land trust’s capacity to meet community needs now and in the years to come, according to a press release. “We at the land trust are very fortunate to be able to attract someone of William’s experience and ability” said land trust president Tom Earle. “We believe the combination of William’s talents with the long term devotion and diligence of our existing staff member, Linda Comeau, puts Upper Saco Valley Land Trust in a very sound position to manage its remarkable growth. In January alone over 800 acres of land has been put into conservation easements and the list of projects continues. The timing couldn’t be William Abbott is welcomed to his new post as executive director of the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust by staff member Linda Comeau.

HANNAFORD from page 12

As part of the campaign, the North Conway Hannaford made donations to Vaughn Community Center, Little Brown Church Food Pantry, Brownfield Food Pantry and The Dinner Bell in Fryeburg. “We could not have helped these important organizations at this level without the support of our customers, local pantries and associates here at Hannaford,” Cox said. “People in this community understand the need and are passionate about taking care of each other.” Hannaford Helps Fight Hunger had three parts. Hannaford Helping Hands: Boxes of the grocery items that pantries most need were sold for $10 each. These boxes included dry cereal, oatmeal,

tuna fish, macaroni and cheese, rice, canned soup, canned vegetables and peanut butter. Register Donation: Customers donated money to their regional or state food bank, in $5 increments, right at the register. Buy One, Give One: Customers triggered donations to regional or state food banks by purchasing a particular Hannaford brand product. For each of these items purchased, Hannaford donated an identical item to the food bank. Hannaford Supermarkets, based in Scarborough, Maine, operates 179 stores in the Northeast. Stores are located in Maine, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. Hannaford employs more than 26,000 associates. For more information, visit www.hannaford.com.

are destroyed, that's a price they are willing to pay. Over the last few years, the Fed hasn’t been satisfied with these traditional, if not destructive, tools. Short-term interest around zero wasn't good enough. They want long-term rates, ten years or more, in maturity to also come down. Enter Quantitative Easing (QE). What is QE? Good luck trying to come up with a clear answer. Each word separately has meaning: quantitative means expressed as a number or quantity, and easing means freedom from pain and worry. If taken together, I guess we’re supposed to understand that money is going to be easy. Here’s how QE works. The U.S. Treasury, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, et al, create bonds (obligations that have to be paid back by our taxes) and then sells them to the 18 primary dealer banks who then purchase them through complicated auctions conducted multiple times per week. The Federal Reserve then buys the bonds from the banks. Why doesn’t the Fed just buy them from the Treasury and agencies directly? That’s called monetizing the debt and is a big no-no. Most importantly is where the Fed gets the money from to buy the bonds: out of thin air. If Goldman Sachs has a few billion dollars worth of 10-year government bonds that it wants to sell and the Federal Reserve agrees to buy them, Goldman sends the bonds to the Fed; the Fed then presses a button and Goldman gets a few billion dollars added to into their account. Just like that, a few billion new dollars have been created. The Federal Reserve was created just shy of 100 years ago, following another Wall Street panic that was ultimately “brought under control” by J.P. Morgan and his fellow bankers. The real reason behind the Fed was to ensure that the nation’s financial decisions wouldn’t be left in the hands of

better for William to step in to the executive director position.” "I am honored and thrilled to have been selected as the executive director for the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust.” said Abbott. “I was impressed with the organization from the start. The commitment of USVLT's membership and board alike was immediately apparent to me, and the organization's track record of land conservation in the last 11 years is a testament to that commitment. I look forward to continuing this impressive legacy and to fostering the next decade of growth." Diverse background After graduating from Wesleyan with additional studies at University of California at Berkeley, Abbott received a master’s of science degree from the University of Vermont's Field Naturalist Program. Most recently, Abbott was conservation director for The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County in Santa Barbara, Calif. In this position he directed conservation and stewardship programs for

properties owned by the land trust and protected by easements as well as directing multi-million dollar restoration projects for the benefit of sensitive wildlife species. A focus of this effort was ensuring that document management complied with standards of the National Land Trust Alliance. Prior work experience

politicians. Instead, a quasi-independent Central Bank would have control. So they wouldn’t be subjected to political pressures, it was granted almost limitless power and autonomy. The concept and execution was unconstitutional. To push it through, the Constitution was amended. I doubt many knew what they were voting for. The Federal Reserve banking system is a corruption of the basic principles of democracy and capitalism. Its Board of Governors are appointed, not elected, and answer to no one. They encumber the taxpayers by whim, debase the currency, pick the winners and losers of our economy, and destroy people’s life savings with cavalier actions tested only in their minds. The Federal Reserve has been the cause of every major financial crisis in this country since the 1970s. The heroic actions the Fed now wants to take would never have been necessary if the Fed didn't exist. I read from time to time of secret cabals plotting to control the world’s economies. While interesting in their narratives, I find nothing to dissuade me from my belief that our Fed is the Purloined Letter, hidden in full sight. We needn't look any further. The Federal Reserve System is the corrupt beast we are looking for. Stop the Fed and we can get off the economic roller coaster that visits so much grief on the nation. David F.

How do I start a business? What is the first step? How do I get financial backing? What is a business plan? What do I have to know to run my business? Is there someone who can help me? Undoubtedly all questions that weighed heavy on the minds of aspiring men and women contemplating starting their own business for the first time. Who didn’t ask themselves if it wouldn’t make sense to avail one’s self of the experience and expertise of others who were successful in starting and running their own businesses? This was the very premise for the founding and funding of SCORE in 1964 by the Small Business Administration (SBA). The mission statement is simple and straightforward: “SCORE provides professional guidance and information to America’s small businesses in order to strengthen the local and national economy.” SCORE is an independent, non-profit association that works cooperatively

with other governmental and private organizations to strengthen local and national economies by promoting the success of small businesses. SCORE operates under the aegis of the SBA and is one of SBA’s primary resource partners. SCORE is a valuable network of 13,000-plus volunteers who offer small business entrepreneurs confidential business counseling services at no charge. SCORE volunteers have the knowledge and experience to help any small business owner get the help he or she needs. For the most part they are retired successful business executives and professionals who often state: “I want to give something back to my community.” But not all are retired. Many members are active business men and women who are driven by the same motivation. To avoid any conflict of interest, all members sign an agreement to adhere to the SCORE Code of Ethics and Conduct that places their responsibility as counselors to the client first and to protect the business confidentiality of the client. Just what are the services offered to clients by SCORE? They fall into three primary categories, the first encompassing counseling and mentoring. Free of charge, counseling is often one-onsee next page

TAX TIME

Casualty losses due to Tropical Storm Irene BY BRIAN G. KELSCH When the remnants of Hurricane Irene came through New Hampshire as a tropical storm at the end of August 2011, many residents suffered severe flooding and damage to their homes. While the government and insurance was able to help some residents, there were certainly those of you who suffered significant losses. Another way that you can reduce your tax burden and recoup some costs is to claim a casualty loss on your tax return. Casualty losses are defined by the IRS as destruction or loss of your property from any sudden, unexpected, or unusual event. Natural disasters such as Irene meet this definition. In fact the following counties were declared disaster areas by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA): Belknap, Carroll, Coos, Grafton, Merrimack, Strafford, Sullivan and Oxford. Generally you may deduct casualty and theft losses relating to your home, household items and vehicles on your income tax return. You may not deduct casualty and theft losses covered by insurance unless you file a timely claim for reimbursement, and you must reduce the loss by the amount of any reimbursement received. This reimbursement includes government payments as well as insurance claims. For your personal property the amount of your casualty or theft loss is the lesser of the adjusted basis of your property or the decrease in fair market value of your property as a result of the casualty. Your adjusted basis is usually your original costs plus the costs

of improvements since your purchase. The decrease in fair market value can be determined by appraisal or by the cost of repairing the property to its previous condition before the casualty. Individuals Brian G. Kelsch claim their casualty losses as an itemized deduction Schedule A. After figuring your loss you must subtract $100 and 10 percent of your adjusted gross income. Casualty losses are generally deductible in the year the casualty occurred. However, because our area was declared a disaster area by FEMA you can choose to take the loss on either your 2011 or 2010 return. You should consider if the deduction is more advantageous in either year. If your loss was related to an income producing property the rules are a bit different, but a deduction is generally available. Please remember these are general rules and you should always speak with your trusted advisers about your particular situation. Brian Kelsch is a Certified Public Accountant at Gamwell, Caputo, Siek & Co., PLCC in Conway, NH and can be reached at (603) 447-3356. You can also follow him on twitter @bkelschcpa or on his blog www.briankelsch.com. He welcomes any article feedback or questions for future article consideration.

CONWAY — Beware the Ides of March ... and continue enjoying an adventurous winter by attending the latest in the North Conway Public Libraries winter lecture series. While previous programs have showcased the beauties of distant places, local writer and photographer Ed Parsons will share his experiences in our own White Mountain backyard at the next program. This program takes place Thursday, March 15, at the Weather Discovery Center on Main Street in North Conway at 7 p.m. Ed Parsons’ theme for his March 15 presentation will be “Writing Down the Wind—Diversity and Beauty shared by a White Mountain writer and photographer.” Since he came home to the Whites while working for the Appalachian Mountain Club in the 1960s and 70s, Parsons has shared his perception of the wild, and his delight at actually being out in it, through a weekly outdoor column for local newspapers, including The Conway Daily Sun. Included in the show will be Parsons’ photographs and stories of climbing New Hampshire’s high peaks in the winter, such as Mount Washington and Mount Lafayette; unusual bushwhacks in the White Mountains, including the steep west face of Mount Lowell; a kayak paddle at dawn into the abode of eagles, and paddling in the spring and during the surge

Invasive plant preventive committee is forming a stewardship program The Lovell Invasive Plant Preventive committee is forming a stewardship program with the objective of creating a communications network within the Kezar Lake watershed. The Lovell Invasive Plant Preventive committee is a town committee that was born out of necessity when the threat of milfoil became apparent in lakes and ponds of Maine. The stewardship program would be used to develop a volunteer force which would gather informational sources needed to protect the watershed from all aquatic threats. Lovell Invasive Plant Preventive committee not only serves Kezar Lake but Bradley Pond, Cushman Pond, Farrington Pond and Heald Pond. With this program in place, a network could be developed for each of these watersheds so that vital information concerning Kezar and each pond would be readily available. Presently, the committee has a volunteer basis, but for the amount of territory to be protected, more are needed specifically for this new program. Those volunteering for the stewardship program would be trained to lead a specific network for either Kezar of the ponds. All stewards would have the same training so each would know how to pass needed information from volunteers to stewards to the other stewards to the Lovell Invasive Plant Preventive committee. In an emergency of finding an invasive plant, all volunteers would be on the same page quickly. Passing on information from network to network is foremost to preserving the waters surrounding Lovell. Anyone interested in volunteering for the Stewardship Program can contact Wes Huntress at whuntress@cwi.edu or you can sign up on the volunteer list at the town office. Wes will be back in Lovell on June 15. The Lovell Invasive Plant Preventive committee holds monthly meetings at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library on the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. Don’t forget the St Patrick’s Day celebration at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library with the showing of the Irish movie “A Very Unlucky Leprechaun” on Friday March 16 at 6:30 pm. The ever popular Miss Liz promises to have some very neat Irish crafts and games and of course Irish yummies. This evening isn’t just for the young but the young at heart of all ages. So kids bring mom and dad for a Merry St Patrick’s Day.

One of the greatest PTA fundraisers is the Annual Italian Dinner. This year it will be held at the New Suncook School on Thursday March 29 with the first sitting at 5 pm the second at 6 pm. This event is sort of tradition for the fifth graders, a rite of passage, as they all act as servers for the evening. There will also be an Art Show with works done by the students on display and the Scholastic Book Fair. Reservations are recommended but for those who are forgetful, like me, can still come and enjoy the dinner and the wait staff. Don’t forget the flea market and bake sale at the Lovell United Church of Christ on Saturday March 17 for 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. There will great items for all to check out plus home made goodies. The church Youth Group will be making lunch, stew, to earn money for their trip to Overlook Farm Learning Center for a “Global Getaway” learning weekend in Rutland MA which offered by Heifer Project International. On the next day the church will be holding the Ron Asworth Bean & Coleslaw Cook-off right after church service. Anyone can come and enter, no preregistration, but to enter your beans it’s $10 and Coleslaw $5. Just bring your entry before church service or bring it with you after if you don’t plan to attend church. Unfortunately for the Trailbreakers there was no snow for their Poker Rally but about 65 folks arrived to pay the $5 for a poker hand to raise money for the group. The winning hand was held by Norris Bennett, 2nd went to Tim Anderson and third to Jack York. It was a lucky day for Norris as he also won the 50/50 but he generously donated his winnings back to the club. There were great raffle prizes so the club did raise some money. The group would like to thank all their supporters and sponsor who donated prizes for the raffle. There is a very important day to put on you calendar. Saturday March 31, 2012 is Egg-citment Day at the United Church of Christ. From 10 to 11:30 a.m. the children fifth grade and under can have a great fun time searching for Easter eggs playing games doing crafts and of course goodies to eat. It’s a fun time planned for the children of Lovell, come and play.

Skinny on Sports...

John Skelton

Youth pond hockey Mad March thoughts from Florida deadline is this Friday On NCAA basketball Selection Sunday in Orlando, Florida, all media was agog with college hoops. Local Eagles hockey fans thought it was Division III All-State team choices that merited the press, following a phenomenal 4-3 overtime state finals victory over Alvirne. The instant classic of a title game gave Kennett its third championship in four years on Saturday. Cleaning out the closet of random thoughts, promotion and relegation is a format that is used in soccer leagues around the non-American world. It would be an interesting phenomenon in New Hampshire high school sports. Rather than school size, the defining characteristic in promotion/relegation leagues is a team’s on-field performance. Win a championship? Move up. Finish at the bottom of the table? Move down. In the English soccer world, the top three teams from lower divisions move up, while the bottom three move down. This provides excitement, tension and end of season meaningful games for all. The lowliest teams experience playoff atmosphere as they compete to season’s end in a quest to avoid relegation. For KHS Eagles hockey, it would be long past time to move up to tougher opposition. The Eagles not only defeated all comers in Division III this season, but out-skated Division II champion Bedford during a 5-3 victory on the road in the Eagles one regular season contest against non-DIII opposition. But the divisional movements planned for 201213 hockey are not based on results. It will be the vanquished DIII finalist, Alvirne, who moves up to DII, after a two-year hiatus from that division. Moving down, local rival Berlin will drop all the way from DI to compete with the Eagles in Division III next season. Why will promotion/relegation never happen in New Hampshire high school sports? Scheduling and travel complications would make for a nightmare. Being an athletic director already brings enough challenges, without the demands of yearly shifting

schedules. Old rivalries would be subject to constant flux. Here in Florida, the lack of advance pitching schedules makes for confusion for the spring training fan trying to see local Jeff Locke pitch an outing for the Pirates in Grapefruit League action. Coupled with a rare March rainy day, and it’s enough to send a lazy vacationer to lounge around the condo and watch Bruins hockey on television. Even a break in the rain to a slow mist found the (miniature) golf links clubhouse closed tight. They just don’t cope with weather fluctuations in the Sunshine State like we do back in New England. This year’s NCAA basketball March Madness offers no clear favorite. Filling out your bracket for intrepid bracketologists will be especially speculative, in a season with no major team having less than two losses. Both frontrunners Syracuse and Kentucky managed to lose their respective conference championship games. Having picked KHS hockey in the Granite State Frozen Four, this columnist will rest on laurels and offer only that Ivy League champion Harvard will pull off an upset in its first round game, even with Jeremy Lin gone to NBA and New York Knick stardom. A silver lining to warm and wet weather is the chance for an early spring, as Kennett ball teams have not seen dry fields before April in recent years. Both softball and baseball nines boast several quality returning players, and should provide excitement on Eagles playing diamonds this spring. Across the state line, Coach Fred Apt’s Fryeburg Raider softball team returns several key players, including softball fireballing sophomore pitcher, Sarah Harriman. the Raiders will make another run at the Maine Class B softball title. Barring one last blast of winter, the ski season has melted away into riversports. So upon return from the land of ‘gators and flamingoes, will it be time to break out the golf clubs, kayak, ball glove and bat in the Valley beneath Mount Washington?

CONWAY — The Conway Recreation Department, Fryeburg Rec. and Ham Arena are partnering once again, to offer 3-on-3 hockey for boys and girls with a pond hockey theme. The five-week program begins Thursday, March 22 and runs through Thursday, April 19. This is an entry level program designed to introduce the game of hockey to boys and girls in grades kindergarten through six with no cost. There will be three age brackets for participants: grades K-1, 2-4, and 5-6. The program is free for children who are residents of Conway, Albany and Eaton. Children from surrounding towns are welcome; however the cost will be $25 for non-residents. Participants will be required to wear a helmet with face shield, mouth guard, elbow pads, shin guards, and gloves. All this equipment, including skates and sticks will be provided by the Ham Arena to the participants free of charge to use if needed. All equipment including sticks and skates will remain at the Ham Arena. Children are encouraged to use their own equipment if they have it. The Ham Arena playing surface will be set up to accommodate side-to-side hockey which will allow three games to be played at any one time in half hour game slots. The goal once again is to reach out to children who may have an interest in trying hockey but have been prohibited due to the cost factor. Conway and Fryeburg recreation departments along with the Ham Arena are stressing this hockey program to promote the pond hockey experience from yesteryear. It will offer a little instruction and much game playing along with loads of fun. Children who are involved in MWVYHA squirt or peewee program are not permitted to play. The program has a registration deadline for signup and payment by Friday,. This is a first come, first serve program and space is limited! Registration forms can be picked up at the Conway Recreation Department office in Center Conway. For additional information please contact Mike Lane at 447-5680 or go online to www.conwayrec.com .

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Determination and resolve will pay off, though it would be nice not to feel that life is an uphill battle. Everything you do shouldn’t require such a great deal of energy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ideas bounce around in your head, and you want so badly to be able to pursue each one to its natural conclusion. But you can’t. You have to prioritize and let some of it go. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may value someone’s opinion and still not agree with it. You’ll run into a case or two like this today. The important thing is to stay humble, appreciative and diplomatic. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to spend time playing with your loved ones and creating fun memories. Remember that working together builds a bond, too -- maybe one that’s even more powerful than leisure-time glue. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sudden changes are around the corner. In order to get ready, build up your strength, flexibility and stamina. This calls for exercise, reading, meditation and extreme self-care. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 14). People are only as young as their dreams. Yours happen to be particularly youthful, lofty and colorful and extremely possible. There will be a surprise twist in April that sends you in a new direction. Friends, allies and partners help you with an important project from May through July. Refreshing domestic renovations happen in August. Leo and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 7, 1, 33 and 18.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You get the sense that your talent and skills are being used in the wrong way. Pull back to get perspective. Nothing good comes of forcing yourself into a situation to please those around you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The latest research suggests that improving your weaknesses, while noble in intent, may very well be a waste of time. Finding out your strengths and focusing there will make you more effective. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You carry a question around with you now. Your mind will find a way to answer it. Believing this will help to relieve the degree of anxiety that goes along with not knowing. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be excellent at motivating yourself. Time pressures can really work for you now. You’ll excel with the creative tension that happens when you’re close to a deadline. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Self-discipline isn’t fun. In fact, it can be quite uncomfortable, which is why many people don’t have as much of it as they want. But you’d rather suffer the discomfort of self-discipline than the pain of regret. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Steer clear of dented cars because they show their history of collision. Similarly, be wary of people who talk of old battles and of being victimized, hurt or wronged. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re a splendidly expressive conversationalist. So what if some of the things you say don’t come out quite right? What counts is that you are contributing. You’re a giver.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, March 14, 2012— Page 23

Today is Wednesday, March 14, the 74th day of 2012. There are 292 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 14, 1962, Democrat Edward M. Kennedy officially launched in Boston his successful candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat from Massachusetts once held by his brother, President John F. Kennedy. (Edward Kennedy served in the Senate for nearly 47 years.) On this date: In 1743, a memorial service was held at Faneuil (FAN’-yul) Hall in Boston honoring Peter Faneuil, who had donated the building bearing his name. In 1794, Eli Whitney received a patent for his cotton gin, an invention that revolutionized America’s cotton industry. In 1885, the Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera “The Mikado” premiered at the Savoy Theatre in London. In 1900, Congress ratified the Gold Standard Act. In 1923, President Warren G. Harding became the first chief executive to file an income tax report. In 1932, photography pioneer George Eastman, founder of Eastman Kodak Co., died by his own hand at age 77 in Rochester, N.Y. In 1939, the republic of Czechoslovakia was dissolved, opening the way for Nazi occupation of Czech areas and the separation of Slovakia. In 1951, during the Korean War, United Nations forces recaptured Seoul (sohl). In 1964, a jury in Dallas found Jack Ruby guilty of murdering Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of President John F. Kennedy, and sentenced him to death. (Both the conviction and death sentence were later overturned, but Ruby died before he could be retried.) In 1967, the body of President John F. Kennedy was moved from a temporary grave to a permanent memorial site at Arlington National Cemetery. In 1980, a LOT Polish Airlines jet crashed while attempting to land in Warsaw, killing all 87 people aboard, including 22 members of a U.S. amateur boxing team. One year ago: In the wake of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami and mounting nuclear crisis, President Barack Obama said he had offered the Japanese government any assistance the United States could provide.

Help Wanted

by Abigail Van Buren

TEEN’S FREE PLACE TO LIVE COMES WITH A PAINFUL COST DEAR ABBY: I am 19 and having an affair with a married man twice my age, but I am an unwilling participant. You see, I grew up with “Jasmine,” and over the years her family has become mine. I was going through a rough time, and when her family offered me a place to stay, I accepted. They treat me like one of their own, buy me presents -even introduce me as a daughter. However, after my birthday party, Jasmine’s father came into my bedroom and took advantage of me. I was scared and didn’t say anything. Over the past few months, he has sneaked into my room several times to “talk” or rub my back. He always crosses the line, and I’m too afraid to tell him to stop. I feel sick and guilty when I see Jasmine or her mother, and I’m hurt and ashamed when I see him. I feel betrayed and confused. I tell myself I do it “for a place to stay.” Is there forgiveness for me? Please help. -- DISTRAUGHT IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR DISTRAUGHT: It appears you ARE “doing it for a place to stay,” and for your own well-being you need to make other living arrangements and get out of there. You have been betrayed, and your feelings are valid. You are not being treated like a daughter; you are being coerced by a man with no conscience or compassion. Of course there is forgiveness for you -- but first you have to forgive yourself. Leaving is the first step. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Ross,” and I have been together for five years and have a 2-year-old child. We talk a lot about marriage and we’re engaged -- kind of. Ross asked me and I said yes four years ago, but no one knows we’re engaged. He bought me a ring and I have been wearing it.

Nobody has questioned it. I want to say something about our plans, but Ross says he’s too nervous and is afraid my parents will be angry. I am 23 and unemployed. Ross is 24 and has had bad luck with a bunch of jobs. Our 2-year-old and I live with my parents. Ross is currently staying with his grandparents. I don’t want a big wedding and I’m afraid my parents will be mad if Ross and I start planning ours. How can we break the news to them? -- TIMID IN STOCKTON, CALIF. DEAR TIMID: If Your boyfriend is too nervous to tell anyone about the engagement, face it -- you’re kind of NOT engaged. If I were you, I’d hold off making any announcements to your folks until you have the answers ready to some questions first, like where you and Ross plan to live after the wedding. With your parents? His grandparents? Who do you expect will be paying for the wedding you’re planning? “Everyone” may have ignored the significance of the ring you’re wearing because neither of you is ready for marriage. DEAR ABBY: When buying a gift for someone and it arrives with a mail-in rebate, what do you do? If you give the person the rebate, he or she will know how much you paid for the gift. If you remove the UPC code, it looks like you regifted. How should this be handled? -- HAVEN’T A CLUE IN EAST HARTFORD, CONN. DEAR HAVEN’T A CLUE: Many people regift, and as long as the item is well-chosen for the recipient and is in mint condition, there’s nothing wrong with the practice. How much was paid for the item is beside the point. When a gift is given, the price tag is removed. Because the mail-in rebate would be a tip-off, it should be removed, too.
