Among them: Did budget committee act illegally with its proposed 11% cut BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Despite the drama, the school deliberative meeting raised more questions than it answered last week — questions that will likely have to go to the courts or to Concord before they get answered. The budget committee cut the school’s budget by 11 percent a month ago, but school supporters put every cent back in last week.

That move complicates an already contentious debate about whether the budget committee acted illegally with its initial recommendation. It also turned the ballot into a rubber stamp. Voters will have the choice between giving school board members exactly what they requested and giving them even more money than they asked for. “There is not much of an option

MADISON — A petition to have the town plow a section of Lead Mine Road was defeated by a secret ballot vote of 94-72 at annual town meeting on Saturday. Just under 200 people attended. The road had been designated a highway to summer cottages in 2007, which basically means the town doesn't plow the road in the winter, but the Veilleux see MADISON page 10 Watch for up-to-the-minute breaking news, local photos, community events and much more!

Warner tests film rentals on Facebook Warner Brothers became the first major media company to offer a movie for rent on Facebook, a move that could position the social network to become a force in the digital distribution of movies, rivaling services like Netflix and iTunes. Heath Ledger as the Joker in “The Dark Knight,” which Warner Brothers will rent to American users over Facebook for the equivalent of $3 in Facebook’s currency. Warner said on Tuesday that it would allow Facebook users in the United States to rent the film “The Dark Knight” directly on the social networking site, and pay for it using Credits, Facebook’s virtual currency. If other studios make similar moves, Facebook could tap a significant revenue stream, bolstering its Credits currency as it seeks to create a rival to PayPal and other payment systems. Warner said it might make other movies available on Facebook over time. “This is definitely a test,” said Thomas Gewecke, president of Warner Brothers Digital Distribution, in a telephone interview.
And I’m sure after Facebook it will be the little cameras that we have implanted into the palms of our hands and we’ll be debating whether we should get them, and then we’ll all get them.” —Jesse Eisenberg

Pro-Qaddafi forces press rebels East, West of Tripoli
AJDABIYA, Libya (NY Times) — Military forces loyal to Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi cranked up military and psychological pressure against rebels on two fronts on Monday, offering an amnesty to those who surrendered their weapons while bombing a strategic linchpin in the east and surrounding a rebel-held town in the west. Loyalist warplanes launched fresh strikes against this anxious town on the doorstep of the opposition capital, Benghazi, and within grasp of a highway crucial to recapturing the eastern border and encircling the rebels with heavy armor and artillery.
At least two explosions were heard, but there was no immediate word on casualties among rebel fighters confronting the air supremacy that Colonel Qaddafi’s forces have used to soften up resistance and intimidate their adversaries as they advance eastward to reverse the country’s bloody uprising. Apparently seeking to undermine the rebels’ determination to continue their fight, loyalist authorities on Monday repeated an offer of amnesty for combatants who give up their weapons, Reuters said, quoting state television. The response was not immediately clear.
Emergency workers struggle to cool reactor at Japanese nuclear plant TOKYO (NY Times) — Japan’s struggle to contain the crisis at a stricken nuclear power plant worsened early Tuesday morning, as emergency operations to pump seawater into one crippled reactor temporarily failed, increasing the risk of a wider release of radioactive material, officials
said. Hospital patients who might have been exposed to radiation were carried into a radiation treatment center in Nihonmatsu, Fukushima Prefecture, on Sunday. With the cooling systems malfunctioning simultaneously at three separate reac-
tors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station after the powerful earthquake and tsunami, a more acute crisis developed late Monday at reactor No. 2 of the plant. There, a series of problems thwarted efforts to keep the core of the reactor covered with water — a step considered crucial to pre-
Gains for NPR are clouded
(NY Times) — The Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism will issue its annual State of the Media report on Monday, and you will be unsurprised to learn that journalism remains in broad retreat. In terms of audience, television networks slipped 3.4 percent, newspapers were down 5 percent, radio fell 6 percent and magazines were down almost 9 percent. Amid all that creative destruction, there was a one large traditional news organization that added audience, reporters and revenue. That unlikely juggernaut was NPR. According to the State of the Media report, NPR’s overall audience grew 3 percent in 2010, to 27.2 million weekly listeners, up 58 percent overall since 2000. In the last year, total staff grew 8 percent, and its website, npr.org, drew an average of 15.7 million unique monthly visitors, up more than five million visitors. Trouble is, NPR has often been better at breaking news than running a news outlet. The current problems started five months ago when Juan Williams, a longtime NPR commentator, was hastily fired for remarks he made about Muslims making him fearful in airports.

Gribble and mother testify at insanity trial BY KATHRYN MARCHOCKI THE UNION LEADER
NASHUA – Admitted Mont Vernon killer took the stand in his defense during his insanity trial Monday. His testimony followed about 2 1/2 hours of emotional testimony from his mother, Tamara Gribble. Gribble returned from the mid-day break and assumed the witness stand. The mother of admitted Mont Vernon killer Christopher A. Gribble frequently cast a smile toward her son while she testified at his insanity trial Monday. She then broke out in tears as she stepped from the stand during the recess. Gribble, 21, of Brookline turned his face from his mother as she walked pass him and otherwise appeared to take little if any notice of her while she took the witness stand in Hillsborough County Superior court. Tamara Gribble’s pained eye flashed warmth when asked to identify her son seated at the defense table. “That’s him,” she said, pointing to her son with a slight smile. She briefly cast warm glances back at her son during breaks in the questioning. Christopher Gribble kept his head down at the defense table, scribbling notes with an over-sized felt marker as he has done through most of the trial. Gribble admitted he stabbed Mont Vernon mother Kimberly L. Cates, 42, to death and gravely wounded her daughter, Jaimie, then 11, during a random 2009 home invasion, but claims he was legally insane at the time. Tamara Gribble, a middle-aged
mother of two sons dressed in a dark gray jumper with a white turtleneck, said it was only after her son was referred to mental health experts in 2007 that she learned he made death threats against her and her husband, Richard. “Chris said he wanted me dead,” said Tamara Gribble, who wore her graying long hair pulled back in a single braid. She said Christopher Gribble was first referred to a counselor through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or the Mormon church, after an adult church member accused her son of repeatedly patting her on the buttocks. She said there also was a prior incident at a Nashua game shop where an adult woman said Christopher Gribble had touched her inappropriately. The church-based counselor later referred Gribble to Nashua psychiatrist Dr. Grace A. Tallarico, who informed her that Chris wanted her dead. She said she was “very upset” to learn of the death threats. “I couldn’t’ imagine him being that angry. He never said to me, ‘I hate you. I wish you were dead.’ And I was really worried,” Tamara Gribble said. But Tallarico, she said, was not overly concerned about the death threats, saying “in my opinion, there is no issue there at all. He is not a danger to himself or to you.” Tamara Gribble said she was unaware her son had any thoughts of suicide. But she recounted on incident when he refused his father’s demands to clean up his room and walked out of the house with a notebook.

Kennett Middle School and M&D present ‘Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr.’ CONWAY — Kennett Middle School Drama Club, under the direction of Ken Martin, of M&D Productions, and Karen Gustafson, drama club adviser, will be presenting "Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr.," a musical with a talented group of 17 seventh and eighth graders. In the past, the drama club has done several small skits and one acts. The success of these smaller productions have been well received, but this time, they have taken on a more ambitious play that will appeal to young and old. "Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr." is a kitschy production showcasing the American series of musical, educational, short songs that originally aired during Saturday morning cartoons over 30 years ago and included topics of grammar, science, economics, history, mathematics, and civics. The original run of the series lasted from 1973 to 1985 and was later revived with both old and new episodes airing from 1993 to 1999. Additional episodes were produced as recently as 2009 for directto-video release. Every parent should

Items that can be controlled up 0.4 percent To the editor: In case any Bartlett residents missed this important bit of information buried in Saturday’s article about the Bartlett school budget, everything that can be controlled in the budget is up 0.4 per-
cent, which equates to an increase of just $800 over last year. Please keep this in mind when you attend the Bartlett School District Meeting on Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. Kurt Erickson Glen
Should ‘defective people’ be executed? To the editor: Like many others in the community I would like to see Mr. Shakir step down from the Conway Budget Committee. He may feel that the public schools shouldn’t have to educate every child in the community but the law states they do. The IDEA Act (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in 1990 and was reauthorized and amended in 2004. In defining the purpose of special education, IDEA 2004 clarifies Congress’ intended outcome for each child with a disability: students must be provided a free appropriate public education that prepares them for further education, employment and independent living. I don’t know much about Mr. Shakir’s background so I don’t know what qualifications Mr. Shakir has to be able to make the decision on who can and who cannot be educated, but if he would like to repeal the IDEA Act he should suggest that to Rep. Guinta and Senators Shaheen and Ayotte.
Unfortunately Mr. Shakir’s comments seem to shared by at least one Republican member of the State House of Representatives. Freshman representative Martin Harty of Barrington stated “the world is too populated” and there are “too many defective people.” His solution? “You know the mentally ill, the retarded, people with physical disabilities and drug addictions — the defective people society would be better off without. I wish we had a Siberia so we could ship them all off to freeze to death and die and clean up the population.” I call on all of our local, state and federal representatives to tell all of us where they stand on Mr. Shakir’s and Mr. Harty’s comments. Mrs. Umberger, Mrs Pettengill, Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Chandler do you all believe that some individuals are not worthy of a public education? If not should they be shipped off to Siberia? How about our State Senators Mr. Bradley and Mr. Gallus? Should ‘defective people’ be executed? Erik Corbett Glen

An open apology to all North Conway goats: You smell fantastic To the editor: An open apology to all North Conway goats: Apparently my comment in a recent N.H.

One particular goat, a goat named Todd James, who apparently has Internet access,
took the time to write a scathing e-mail to The Conway Daily Sun, with numerous typos and erroneous facts, but yet still pretty impressive for a goat. (Imagine working a keyboard with those hooves!)

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, March 15, 2011— Page 7
Do you support the $75,000 special article for two more police officers in Conway?
There were 34 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “Do you support the $75,000 special article for two more police officers in Conway?” Twenty-one people said they would not vote for the special article; nine said they would vote in favor of it.
How much proof do you need? The police have shown time and time again through their statistics and their reports that there’s a desperate need for additional officers. We as a community need to start believing in groups and organizations that have our best interests at heart. Should we believe the selectmen who told us a new garage would cost $800,000 and they fixed it for $200,000? Should we believe the budget committee that doesn’t think that special needs children should be educated at our expense? Or should we believe the police department that day in and day out protect us and have our best interests in mind? Let’s support this article and get back to business. Chris in North Conway. Yes, if we can afford the extra police officers we really should, but how can we afford them after the school committee and all those who agree with them spend so many of our tax dollars so irresponsibly. It was obvious after the meeting the other night that they could care less about those with low incomes trying to support a family and keep up with their mortgages so as not to lose their houses. They also have no heart for seniors, a lot of whom are veterans who fought for their freedom. And those seniors now are trying to exist on Social Security and decide if they can afford the higher taxes that these people want to keep their homes. To the school committee and all those who agree with them, by having more teachers and yet with lower enrollment of studies, just to placate the unions who are bankrupting our town, our state and our country, shame on them. Of course we should support the addition of more police. How can you have a police state without adequate jack boots on the ground? A new generation of future criminals is being born every day at Memorial Hospital. New criminals will be graduating high school in June. More criminals will be coming to the valley this summer for a criminal vacation. I think I saw a couple criminals this morning at the local store. I worry that if the police are on the north, south, east, west of the village, I won’t get help if I’m in the middle. I’d like to say more, but I’ve got to check, I think there’s a criminal under the bed. Yeah, no problem having two more police officers. Now you can have Moe, Larry and Perley. Yeah, I support the police in all their endeavors, and whatever they need to keep the town safe and the kids safe in the community. There is one other thing that I’d like to mention is that the current profession I’m in brings me around a lot of those officers.
And some of the comments that have been made recently about those guys, that the town’s paying those guys to look down holes while the construction guys are working, are absolutely false. The construction companies that come in and are doing those businesses hire those officers when they are off duty for safety reasons. And that’s how those officers make ends meet, performing these extra duties when they’re not working for the town. I think that’s a point that a lot people miss, is that the town is not paying these police officers to do these details, the construction company is. It’s like a second job for them because they’re on a fixed income like everybody else, so they’ve got to get the money where they can in today’s economy. I hope everybody will be able to support the police department. Yes, I definitely support the article for two more police officers. No, no, no. What part of no do these people not understand. Can’t wait to vote April 12. Vote it all down taxpayer of Conway. Get your justice. I believe the police department, and our teachers and our town employees are excellent employees and they do a wonderful job. But it’s been seven years since I’ve had a raise with the company I worked for and we don’t get insurance deductible paid and we have a high deductible and it goes up and up and up. It gets to the point that your mortgage payment is going to be less than what we pay for taxes per year on the house and I just don’t understand how I can afford to keep my house much longer. It seems like somewhere, somehow we have to tighten the reins and get by with what we have for a while until the economy picks up. And then maybe we can afford to give everybody everything they want. No, I do not support the special article for two more police offi cers. In this economy the police department is not being realistic to ask for three offi cers at the rate of 75,000 per year per officer. Perhaps one this year and then maybe in a year or two depending on our economy they can ask for others. Carl from Kearsarge. Absolutely not, I don’t support it at all. The ones that we’ve got now are out there sitting at Dunkin Donuts all night, sitting at different stores all night long. I’ve seen it personally myself. I think they really need to put the ones they’ve got to work and have them do their job instead of drinking free coffee and eating free doughnuts. Yes, I absolutely support the two police officers. I think it was clear at the town meeting last week that the people of the town support the police officers, they support the school, and we support whatever it takes in this town to make things work. Yes, I’m very, very concerned with the hiring of more police. More police, it will mean just more doughnut shops. Something must be done to stop this vicious cycle. The needs are endless. Bureau-
cracies always want to further themselves. I would love to see the assumptions in the study cited in the question and see if those assumptions really actually apply to us. I think we need to really question these expenditures, especially now. No, I do not support the special article for two more officers. I didn’t support the $97,300 article. I think it’s just a way to inflate the budget. And it’s obvious from the police reports we get from The Conway Daily Sun that perhaps some of their biggest issues are dogs barking, neighbors being noisy and perhaps a speeding ticket once in a while. As far as the drug problem goes, I see they get $100 fine and suspension from the bench, more than likely when they show up to court. I think the whole police department is mismanaged; it doesn’t know how to use the officers and resources that it has. If it did we wouldn’t need as many officers as we have already. No, I don’t support the special article for $75,000. We don’t need any more traffic cops. We should really size down. Reason: Jackson and Bartlett have more second homes and condos and they have three or four officers, if that. Conway has three or four fourwheel cruisers and Jackson has none. Most of their area they protect and their homes are too hard to get to even in the summer, not only in the winter. The big thing that makes Conway so busy is people from surrounding towns come here to shop and to eat out at our restaurants in the area. The police we have now are never around in the summer months or in the fall months in North Conway at night. So where are they? We need more officers? We don’t even have them when we need them. Talk about stupid. They can’t afford lights, but yet they can afford $75,000 for cops. Turn the lights back on, don’t you think? Absolutely not. I do not support the $75,000 special article for two more police officers in Conway. We do not need any more police officers. And plus, they could balance their budget somehow without having to add on so much money. They were in a hurry to spend the money — money they had left over instead of giving it back to the taxpayers. This is Kate from Conway. The right wing of The Conway Daily Sun has dodged a bullet with this week’s Tele-Talk question. The question should have been about the embarrassing Conway School District deliberative meeting, when Republican extremist Ray Shakir made people in Conway look like idiots. It’s all over the Internet. The greed of the police commissioners and Chief Wagner is beyond comprehension. Every other city and town in the country is downsizing and these clowns want to upsize. Kennett and Dougherty have enough personal wealth to handle any kind of tax increase and they could care less about the rest of us. Theresa
Kennett has a history of being spend crazy. Like Selectman DiGregorio who was quoted in the paper last week that he has no problem with people adding to the budget, these people have gone absolutely bonkers with our hard earned money and just want to spend, spend, and spend some more. DiGregorio does not know how to spell “no.” We try to save money by turning lights off, but now we have these so-called “representatives of the people” saying no, we need to add to the budget so we can end up paying higher taxes. Seems like the only guys who are in our corner are Larry Martin and Bob Drinkhall. Crow Dickinson, who seems in a purple haze most of the time, has never had a financially challenged day in his life and is clueless about how we taxpayers struggle to make ends meet. Vote no on April 12. Beaten down taxpayer. No, I don’t support this article. The special interest groups increased the town and school budgets at the town meeting and many people will not be able to pay their taxes. There has been a lot of either misleading or incomplete information spread around by some individuals who do not pay the high Conway property taxes. One example was a recent letter from Bartlett resident Paul Mayer. He included a chart showing that a $200,000 home in Conway pays $3,744 in property taxes a 41 percent increase in 10 years. Apparently that seems reasonable to him. He neglected to show that if you lived in the North Conway precinct you are paying about $4,400. He also neglected to show that a taxpayer with a $200,000 home in Bartlett would pay only about $1,800 in property taxes, less than half the Conway rate. Many taxpayers, including our own superintendent of schools are fleeing Conway for low tax areas. Individuals like Mr. Mayer, are not feeling our pain, but are the most vocal and want Conway taxpayers to spend more money. When they move to Conway, maybe someone will listen. Chris Perley and the rest of them coppers on the Conway Police Dept. are doing a mighty fine job, but we need several more. That’s all there is between order and chaos. Without them, the town would eventually be totally overrun by punks, pimps, prostitutes, pedophiles, pornographic photographers, perverts and other assorted criminals. The additional coppers could indirectly pay their own salaries and save local taxpayers money by writing speeding tickets only to Massachusetts drivers. I don’t have any more to say on this topic ... but I won’t let that stop me. Conway needs more cops to wage war against the army of dope dealers and addicts that are heading this way. This is Ralph in Eaton. No, our family does not support the money for two more police officers. What does it take for the police see TELE-TALK page 8

TELE-TALK from page 7
department to stop increasing the budget? The police department must become more efficient and cut the fat. Eliminate the DARE program, outsource the elder calls to a volunteer agency, and stop having officers watch while the DOT and town repairs roads. The police department should learn to work and function with what they have. This increase is a burden to the tax payers. The attitude of our police department makes us sick — this is not Beverly Hills. Municipalities across the nation are cutting back and we must also! Barbara, Center Conway. The following Tele-Talk responses were posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page. No way. No, no, no! No! Put it towards the school budget. Take that money and turn on the street lights. You don’t need more police; the ones you have need to step it up. Sure, why not, then put in a sales tax so the property taxes can go down and pay for more town services. And roll the remainder into the school system and after-school programs to keep kids out of trouble with the intent of lowering the crime rate which doubles after 3 p.m. on average. I live in another town and cannot vote on this issue. If I were able to vote I would say yes! Only because I witnessed a local convenience store get robbed twice in the middle of the night. The first night it took the police over 10 minutes to respond. The second time one just happened to be patrolling the area and one of the customers flagged him down and they caught the guy that night. Lucky for the female clerks that were on those nights, it was a grab and run (took 30 packs of Bud Light) and no weapon was involved. The only reason that it took them so long the first night was because they were busy at another call. What if the robber had a gun and shot the clerk and it took
over 10 minutes to get help? I do not want to imagine that ever happening. Yes! And I think it’s disrespectful to think otherwise. They bust their butts answering all kinds of calls to keep us safe. I’m sure some people’s opinions would change if they needed the police! This question isn’t about the school budget. That’s a whole other mess. I thought they were looking for one additional position? Now three? In these challenging economic times when we are asking N.H. families to tighten their belts. Now look who is taxing and spending! They asked for and received their additional officer in last week’s town meeting. To ask for two more in these times is really ridiculous! I do not know a single person or business who has not cut their budgets with this recession. But the Town of Conway and all of its departments are still spending (with the help if a few taxpayers who showed up at town meeting). Scare tactics being used by departments to get their way is unconscionable. I really feel sorry for the townspeople who gave their time to be on these boards, worked their tails off to cut spending. And a few idiots reverse all of their hard work! People, you need to learn to live with less! One was added to the police budget and the other two are in a separate warrant article, so read carefully when you vote. Since I am not the police chief, I don’t know exactly what the police department needs or does not need in order to operate successfully. If the police chief says he needs officers, then he needs more officers. If the town budget needs to cut spending, the last place I would do it is in public safety. Sure we need to learn to live with less, but not at the expense of people’s safety. People don’t appreciate the police until they need them. And calling those who showed up at the deliberative meeting “idiots” is misguided. If people felt so strongly about supporting the budget cuts, the only “idiots” were the ones who stayed home.

for the voters,” said David Sordi, chair of the budget committee. The default budget, normally a fallback option that limits spending, is $190,473 more than the proposed budget this year. “It’s no solution for people,” Sordi said. The fiscally conservative choice come April will be to support the proposed budget, which is $33.1 million — $3.6 million more than what the budget committee had recommended. “They can vote for more, or they can vote for more and more,” said Bob Drinkhall, the selectmen’s representative to the budget committee. The deliberative meeting was dominated by school supporters, he said, while very few residents concerned about about rising taxes showed up. “They just don’t come out,” he said. “I have their support but not their votes.” The school, meanwhile, had lots of support. “It was extremely pleasing to see the community come out,” said Dr. Carl Nelson, the superintendent of schools for the district. He was happy to see the people add back the full 11 percent the budget committee cut, even though it could run into complications down the line. “The governing body can do anything it wishes,” he said. But the Department of Revenue Administration may limit the governing body’s actions. “They complied with the laws but not with the rules,” Sordi said. According to DRA rules, voters are allowed to modify the budget committee’s recommendation by 10 percent at the deliberative meeting. The voters put in all they could, and more. “There’s nothing illegal about that motion, it’s just risky,” said Peter Malia, the town’s attorney. “The potential exists for the DRA to shave off the difference.” To “shave off the difference,” he said, the DRA would begin with the
last warrant article and work its way backward until the school budget is within 10 percent of the budget committee’s recommendation. And even if the voters reject the proposed budget in favor of the default, Malia said, there is a chance the DRA will still hold the school to 10 percent of the budget committee’s recommendation. “It will sort of be a first for the DRA,” he said, since no one has ever exceeded the 10 percent limit, either in a proposed or default budget. But that concern didn’t slow down school officials. “We would prefer to have the budget than the warrant articles,” Nelson said, even though limiting the budget to 10 percent would eliminate most of the special article requests and cut $839,000 from their operating budget. “Based on the advice from our counsel we feel comfortable,” said Janine McLauchlan, the school board’s representative to the budget committee who proposed voters add back the 11 percent at last week’s meeting. “We felt the DRA might not apply the 10 percent rule.” The school’s counsel, attorney John Teague, had already advised the school board it might be able to get out from under the budget committee's 11 percent cut. The argument comes back to the 10 percent rule, and to the budget committee’s meeting in early February where committee made its 11 percent cut recommendation. If the budget committee was aiming for a 1 percent cut and instead trimmed 11 percent assuming voters would add back 10 “the court has said they’re not doing their job,” Teague said. He’d watched the video of the meeting, he said, and “it seemed to me there was a lot of indication that is what they were doing.” On top of that, he said, the budget committee didn’t carefully review the impact their cuts would have. see QUESTIONS page 10

“They seemed to be picking percentages out of thin air,” he said. “It’s not what the budget committee is expected to do.” But Malia, who as the town’s attorney also represents the budget committee, asked budget committee members at a special meeting during the end of February if they wanted to amend the committee’s recommendation in light of the school’s position. “There was silence,” he said. But at least one budget committee member who voted for the 11 percent cut said he never intended for the school department to run on the budget recommendation he supported. “My intention was to find out what voters say,” said John Edgerton. The school couldn’t run on $29 million budget, “it’s not enough,” he said, even though he voted for it. He always intended for the voters to put something back in, but not the most they were allowed to. “10 percent? No, it’s against the law to think that way,” he said. There was conversation about the 10 percent rule the night the committee elected for an 11 percent cut, however. The question is whether the intentions were there, and if it would be enough to toss out their recommendation. That would settle any questions about the legitimacy of the proposed or default budgets. “I don’t see a smoking gun,” Malia said, which is what it took in previous cases to overturn budget committee recommendations. “The key is if they caused a false reality on purpose.” Most members of the committee don’t think that happened. “I’m not sure exactly why the attorney feels it’s illegal,” Sordi said. “We did our job.” MADISON from page one
family is now constructing a yeararound residence there. Petitioner Ray O'Brien asked residents authorize the town to maintain the road since it's a Class V town road. O'Brien argued passing the petition could reduce the chances of the town being sued. "Now we have a private citizen plowing a dual-use town road under the guidance of the road agent," said O'Brien. "It seems like a dangerous situation."
But the committee’s decision did raise some questions. The budget committee originally asked every department, from the town to the police to the school, to cut 5 percent. So why didn’t the committee recommend a 5 percent cut, McLauchlan said, if that was the original goal? She was under the impression committee members were expecting the voters to add back the 10 percent when they made their 11 percent recommendation. Sordi said he expected the committee recommendation to wind up around a 5 percent cut, but in the end the 11 percent proposal garnered the votes it needed. Sordi himself did not vote in support of the 11 percent cut. The committee was looking for a number that would allow the school to operate effectively and provide relief to the taxpayers at the same time. If the school board wants to argue that point, it will have to take the committee to court. “The board will discuss that,” Nelson said. “We have to make a decision about what our next move will be.” If school board members don't take the budget committee to court, or if they do and lose, they will then be at the mercy of the DRA’s interpretation of rules they’ve never had to address before. “DRA won’t do anything until after April 12,” Malia said, so DRA knows which budget its dealing with and which question its asking. The DRA will more than likely get the attorney general’s office to review the matter and make a decision in that case, Sordi said. In any case, it will likely be a while before the final answer comes down, and it won’t be a decision Conway voters get to make. In his presentation, O'Brien said the town has accepted similar roads. He said the cost of plowing the road has been estimated $1,600 per year but the cost of liability is unknown. The town already plows similar roads, O'Brien. The section in question runs from Black Brook to the Veilleux's home, which is under construction. Outspoken petition critic Robert King called O'Brien's proposal "premature." King proposed amending the article to see next page

say it would take effect under the following conditions: the Veilleux family completes the home and lives there year-round; selectmen obtain necessary highway rights; and the planning board approves cutting of trees. "The need for year-around maintenance has not been established," said King. "Until it is, it would be foolish to impose this expensive obligation on us." But road agent Bill Chick said the road is wide enough to plow already — even though it's heavily traveled by cross-country skiers and others. He said there was no problem with having the trucks turn around on private property. A majority of residents disagreed with King's motion and his amendment failed. Debra Noyes was among those who spoke in favor of the petition. Noyes said she was grateful when the town took over North Division Road where she lives. Several other residents agreed with Noyes that it would seem fair to plow the road. A few said the issue was causing divisiveness in the town. Selectman John Arruda questioned the $1,600 estimate given the fact that Madison roads cost $9,000 per mile to maintain. Arruda also worried about safety when it comes to running trucks where people recreate. A yes vote would also open the door for residents on unmaintained roads to apply for Class V status, he said. "I would have a difficult time saying no to those people," said Arruda. "Fair is fair. At that time you are opening a very big can of worms." But selectman Mike Benoit, who lost his re-election bid just a few days earlier, disagreed with Arruda. Benoit said that the $9,000 includes maintenance for the warm months -- which the town already does on that section of Lead Mine Road. Benoit added that a snowmobile trail could be added on the side of the road. What makes the issue more complicated is the fact that the road is used for winter activities such as snowshoeing and snowmobiling. "An interesting thing happens when it snows. The character of that whole road, from Black Brook to East Shore Drive, changes," said resident Jeff Balugh. "It's no longer a road; it's a linear park about 1.3 miles long and it's used for recreation by many people in the town."
Balugh was concerned that crosscounty skiers wouldn't have time to get out of the way of large town plow trucks. Resident Jim Malloy made a motion to amend the article to have the town plow the whole road. Malloy said the town should either plow the whole road or none of it. Plowing the whole road would make it useful for motorists, and leaving it alone keeps it as a park. King called Malloy's motion "utterly irresponsible." He then went on to accuse Chick of concealing information about the road. Members of the audience yelled that King was engaging in personal attacks. George Epstein handled the situation by making King sit down. Malloy's motion failed. Also at Saturday's town meeting: * Residents overwhelming supposed an article to spend $228,000 to improve Tasker Hill/Allard Hill Road. This project will be done in conjunction with the town of Conway, which Madison selectmen said will allow Madison to take advantage of substantial cost savings. * Residents shot down articles for buying a backhoe loader, fire department radios and insulated overhead doors at the fire station. They shaved a $37,000 warrant article for fire truck capital reserve to $25,000. * A petition warrant article to allow residents to remove usable items from the transfer station passed by an almost unanimous vote. Supporters said this article was environmentally friendly and encouraged Yankee frugality. * Early in the meeting, resident Ron Force said he wanted a zero-growth budget. He said if everything passed then spending would go up by nearly 9 percent. Then he asked the audience members to raise their hands if they or someone close to them had been laid off, had their working hours reduced, or denied a cost of living increase. A large number of people raised their hands. In response to Force, O'Brien estimated that if all the warrant articles passed then it would add 40 cents per $1,000 of property value to the tax rate. However since a few warrant articles failed, the tax increase would be roughly 10 cents less. About $50,200 of proposed spending was cut. * In light of a heated meeting held earlier in the week in Conway, moderator George Epstein said he decided to wear a referee whistle on a lanyard. "I would prefer a striped shirt but that would ruin the image I built around my sweater vest," said Epstein.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
BARTLETT — The town will undergo a full revaluation this year after citizens approved funds for the reval at town meeting Thursday night. Even after the warrant article was amended down by $50,000 to $300,000, the revaluation passed by secret ballot by the required two-third majority by just seven votes with 83 people in favor of it and 32 opposed. Polls were required to remain open for an hour as the money to pay for the reval will be bonded. The remainder of the warrant was decided during the waiting period for results. Selectmen referred to the complete revaluation of the town's property values (Article No. 7) as "the big ticket item," on this year's warrant. "While the town's equalization ratio and coefficient of dispersion have remained within the state limits and updates and new construction were being done every year," selectmen wrote in the town report, "after doing their assessment review of the town, the N.H. Board of Tax and Land Appeals and the N.H. Department of Revenue Administration felt that since all properties have not been visited since the last complete revaluation in 1993, that the town needed to start a program of complete review in order to be sure all properties are assessed fairly and equitably. Given the economy and especially the state of the real estate market, the selectmen have concerns that this may not be be the best time to do this, but basically there is no good time to do a reval. "This is a major undertaking and will involve assessors visiting every property in town to remeasure and inspect all buildings between April and October of this year," they continued. "We hope residents will cooperate with the assessors and make

their jobs easier (and thus saving the town money) by allowing them to asses their property." The largest single money item was the town budget, Article No. 8, which was amended up $25,151 during the course of discussion in the gymnasium at the Josiah Bartlett Elementary School. Voters agreed to add $12,000 to the gasoline/diesel fuel line item for the police, highway and fire departments due to the increasing costs. They also added $11,000 to replace a boiler at town hall and $2,151 to assist the library. Voters ultimately approved the first $2 million town budget ever at $2,025,101. All but one of the rest of the articles were approved. Article No. 16, submitted by petition through Geraldine Beck and others, sought $2,000 to assist the Bartlett Community Preschool. Selectmen unanimously opposed the article because they don't believe town funds should be used to support a private business. Petitioners asked that the article be passed over because they were able to find funding through another avenue. Articles approved included: No. 10, $168,000 to purchase a four-wheel drive highway truck with a sander body, plow and wing; and No. 9, $125,000 for town road improvements. The town plans to wait until later this spring to determine which road projects the highway crew will be taking on this year. However, selectmen said it looks like major work will be done on Cobb Farm Road, Dundee Road, Skyline Drive and Alpstrausse. Near the conclusion of the meeting, moderator Rob Clark acknowledged outgoing selectman Jon Tanguay, who is stepping down after six years, for his service to the town. He received a round of applause from the legislative body. New selectman David A. Patch was sworn in and attended his first board meeting Friday morning.

MANCHESTER — It had to be low-scoring. It had to be close late. It wasn’t in either case. Unfortunately, the third time wasn’t the charm for Kennett High ice hockey team and its fans, who once again traveled well and we’re loud and proud throughout at the Verizon Wireless Arena Sunday afternoon. It was Somersworth’s day and the Toppers skated to their first Division III State Championship in style with a series of highlight reel goals en route to an 8-3 victory and an undefeated season. “It was like we were running on a treadmill all day,” Michael Lane, Eagles’ head coach, said. “You’ve got to give Somersworth credit for how they played, but we just didn’t play our best game. (The Toppers) deserve some credit for that. “For me,” Lane continued, “this result doesn’t cloud what our team did this year. I’m so proud of the way our guys banded together all winter. From an 0-2 start to all the injuries, to come back, get the No. 3 seed and get back to the Verizon is quite an accomplishment. … We had a great crowd, we wish we could have given them more to cheer about, it wasn’t for lack of trying.” Kennett, which was appearing in the title game for the sixth time since 2003, had played the Toppers so tough in two previous meetings and actually led both contests into the third period before falling. Sunday, the Eagles got behind early, were forced to gamble defensively to try to come back and Somersworth capitalized on every opportunity that came its way. The Toppers, who at one point outshot the Eagles 9-0 to open the game, went on to outshoot KHS 47-22 on the afternoon. Kennett’s Jonny Parkhurst made numerous stellar saves in goal or it could have been a more lopsided tilt. Kennett had never surrendered eight goals in a game, ever. Somersworth’s first line of Petter Bulling, a Swedish exchange student; Stevie Wolf, whose brother Phil graduated from Kennett; and Jaret Canney accounted for 99 goals and 232 points on the highsee EAGLES page 15

Eagles fall just short in the semifinals; Lebanon wins BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — “Going into the game I told the kids I thought the key to the game would be rebounding and I think it was,” Peter Ames, head coach of the Kennett High girls basketball team said after his club came up short in its title defense Thursday night at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester against Lebanon. The second-seeded Raiders got a certain measure of revenge against the third ranked Eagles, who spoiled Lebanon’s bid for an undefeated season last year in that title game, winning 59-56 in a hardfought semifinal contest. The girls from Lebanon out-rebounded the defending state champs 44-26. The Eagles are seniors Melissa Frase, Sam Meader and Allie Wagner; juniors Casey Blakely, Maddie Graves, Rachel Miller, Kendra Strong, Kaitlin “Shaq” Taylor and Jessie Wagner; sophomores Lauren Kidder, Jordan Murphy and Lauren White; and freshman Tori Burns. Lebanon went on to fall to top ranked Souhegan in the championship game Saturday, 47-44 on a threepointer at the buzzer that gave the Sabers their lone lead of the day. The Raiders had led 18-5 at the game’s outset. The Eagles had trouble on both ends of the court in the rebounding department and the biggest problem was Lebanon’s sophomore center Trina Scheie, who had 24 points to go with a game-high 21 points in the win. “Really it was just a matter of us not doing a very good job on her,” Ames said. “A lot of her points came on second chances. I thought we’d be a little better inside defensively. She’s a good player, pretty aggressive and she just went to the boards. If we keep her off the boards and rebound it might have been a difsee KHS page 17

est-scoring offense in the state this winter, and they were in top form Sunday. Wolf scored a hat-trick, including a pair of powerplay goals, and added an assist, while Bulling had two goals and three assists, and Canney added a goal and two assists. Somersworth found the back of the net at 5:08 of the opening period when Bulling got behind the Eagles’ defense and converted on a breakaway. It was the first time in eight playoff games the Eagles had trailed. “That’s kind of been our M.O. all season,” Lane said. “We’re great as a front-runner and no so good when we have to come from behind.” The Toppers doubled their pleasure with the first of four power-play goals with 7:57 to play in the period. Parkhurst, who had a 1.5 goals against average this season, made two point-blank stops but the puck fell to Wolf, who tucked it home from close range. “I think we played nervous at the start,” Lane said. “For a lot of our guys it was a new atmosphere to be playing in.” The Eagles managed to pull a goal back with 4:58 to go in the period. Gabe Lee pounced on the rebound of a Nick Massa shot and one-timed a shot home from about 12 feet out. see EAGLES page 16

The Toppers answered quickly with a fluke goal just 33 seconds later. Defenseman Austin Siering took a slapshot from just inside the blue-line from the right side. “I had a pretty good view of that one since it was right in front of us,” Lane said. “It was going at least two feet wide, but it deflected off (a KHS defenseman’s glove) and redirected in. That one hurt because it took our momentum away. “It seemed like every mistake we made,” he continued, “they took advantage of it and every time we did a good thing, they did two. It was one of those days. It was their day, not ours.” The second period was filled with penalties. Kennett sent six players to the box while Somersworth had three. “There was no flowß to the game in the second,” Lane said. “We just never seemed to find our rhythm.” The Toppers took advantage of a five on three power-play to extend the lead to 4-1 with 8:42 left in the period. Wolf netted his second capping off a series of nice passes from close range. Trailing 4-1 after two periods, Lane tried rolled the dice offensively. “I told the guys, the (New Hampshire Interscholastic Athletic Association) is not going to give us a bigger trophy for keeping it close,” he said. “We decided to take more chances, but every time we pinched (forward), they took advantage. Every one of their goals was pretty much a highlight reel goal.” At 8:58 of the third, Bulling scored his second, darting down the left side and going to the far post with a wellplaced shot. The Eagles answered with 6:52 remaining. Justin Munck deflected home a Matt Kelly slapshot to make it 5-2. “I’m always an optimist,” Lane said. “I’ll never give up. Obviously down 5-1 in the third you’d have to say we needed a miracle. I really didn’t look at the scoreboard in the third period. In hockey a lot can happen in a small

amount of time.” Somersworth regained its four goal cushion 50 seconds later when Bulling and Jaret Canney went in two on none on Parkhurst. Canney took the Bulling feed and fired the puck home. With 3:08 left, Wolf completed his hat-trick by sliding in a rebound to make it 7-2. Lee lit the lamp one last time for KHS when he redirected home a Chris King shot with Massa also assisting on the tally. Matti Doxter completed Somersworth’s scoring with one minute to play. “They just seemed one step quicker than us all afternoon,” Lane said.

“Certainly we’re a better team than we showed today. It’s tough when it comes to an end like this, but that happened to 15 other teams in Division III this season. It hurts, but our guys and fans need to look back on what we achieved this season and focus on that.“ Somersworth loses a ton of talent to graduation while Kennett will lose four seniors who have meant a great deal to the program in Parkhurst, Chuckie Smith, Nick Kevlin and captain Logan Spoor. “We lose a lot of characters in the locker room,” Lane said. “I think I was more upset than Logan was.

ferent story. I thought we did a nice job on their outside people we just never reacted to (Scheie). “I thought we played hard, but we didn’t always play as smart as we have in the past,” he continued. “We missed some big foul shots. Allie (Wagner) was 10-10 and the rest of the team was two for seven. In a three point game, rebounds and free throws are even more important. This probably wasn’t our best game, but some of that was due to Lebanon.” Kennett took lead early on when Allie Wagner converted a layup to put the girls from Conway in front 4-3 and then Frase scored on a drive to hoop, making it 6-3. The Raiders went on a 8-0 run to lead 11-6 before Meader converted a layup to end a two minute drought. The Eagles got a nice spark off the bench from “Shaq” Taylor, who converted a pair of layups in the opening quarter from picture-perfect Frase passes. Lebanon led 18-14 after the first eight minutes with Scheie netting nine points in the quarter. There were 11 lead changes in the first half. Frase had a steal and layup with 6:44 to play in the opening half to put KHS in front 19-18. Taylor had another layup (from Frase) and turned it into an oldfashioned three-point play with a successful free throw after Lebanon scored to take the lead.

With the game knotted at 22, the Eagles went on a 4-0 run (a Blakely offensive rebound and put back followed by an Allie Wagner jumper) to take what turned out to be their biggest lead of the night, 26-24 with 4:16 to play in the half. Leading 30-29 after a pair of Allie Wagner free throws, Kennett went cold over the final 2:48. The Raiders seized on that opportunity with an 8-2 run to lead 37-32 at the intermission. Lebanon grew the lead to 10 points at the outset of the third quarter on a layup and three-pointer. Kennett never got rattled and showed its championship character and slowly trimmed away at the lead. Down 46-38, the Eagles went on a 7-0 run (their largest of the night) with Frase scoring on a drive and Allie Wagner following with a three-pointer and then a pair of free throws to pull within a point, 46-45 with 1:41 left in the third. The Raiders scored the final hoop of the period to lead 48-45 setting the stage for a see-saw fourth quarter. Again, Lebanon got the jump on KHS to open the fourth frame scoring four quick points to build the lead to seven, 52-45 with 6:14 to play. Frase responded with a layup and Allie Wagner brought a flock of Eagles to their feet with exactly four minutes to play when she buried a three-pointer. Lebanon clung to the lead and again scored the next four points

to open a six point cushion. Allie Wagner hit a three from just over mid-court with 2:17 to play, making it 56-53. The Eagles forced a turnover and Frase went in for a layup. She was fouled as her shot rolled around the rim and out. She hit one of two foul shots to trim the gap to two with 1:26 to remaining. Kennett thought it had forced a turnover, drawing a five second call on the Raiders, but apparently Lebanon called time-out just in the nick of time. The Raiders went on to make three foul shots, hut Blakely scored on an offensive rebound with seven seconds to play to pull within three again. KHS was forced to foul and did so with 6.1 seconds to play. A Raider missed both attempts and the Eagles got the rebound, but were unable to get the ball up the court for a final attempt to knot the contest and force overtime. “We had two or three opportunities where we made nice plays but didn’t finish,” Ames said. “We could never quite finish in a number of ways. I thought we had some two on ones and didn’t quite finish them off and then there were five or six times I thought we had the rebound and they just took it away from us. “We just didn’t get a big play at critical times,” he added. “There were three or four times where you’ve got to have a play and for some reason we didn’t seem to make it happen, those things happen from time to
time. The effort and the other stuff were there. We played hard and never gave up. In the end we had a chance, but didn’t make a good pass.” For the game, Allie Wagner finished with 28 points to lead all scorers while Frase added nine points with eight assists; Taylor, seven; Blakely, six; Meader, two; Kidder, two; and Murphy, two. “It’s disappointing in the sense that I think we could have been in the finals,” Ames said, “but really there’s not a whole lot of difference than last year where we somehow got through each round. Now I guess it’s someone else’s turn.” The Eagles lose three talented seniors in Frase, Meader and Allie Wagner. “These three have been great for our program,” Ames said. “They certainly helped to turn things around here a little bit. This group has been a big part of our success and are going to be awfully difficult to replace. (Smiling) I think they’ll probably help the alumni team against us in the future.” The Kennett girls basketball team will hold a fund-raiser to benefit the Herlihy family whose youngest member, Bryson, is currently battling a rare form of bone cancer.

Happy 95th birthday to Harry Fowler Today it felt like spring. I hope you turned your clocks ahead, because I’m still an hour off. I like gaining the hour but not losing it. Does that mean I can sleep later tomorrow? Saturday’s surprise open house 95th birthday bash for Harry Fowler was a blast. The cars were lined up along the road all the way to his daughter Cindy’s driveway. Yes, Harry has a lot of friends and family who think he is pretty special. His actual birthday was on Thursday, March 10, but Saturday was the day for everyone, and I do mean everyone, to wish him well. Daughter Tory was in charge of organizing everything and she did a fine job. Later that night, they counted 117 people who had been there, and Harry received over 150 cards. Riverstones made the most beautiful and delicious chocolate cake, creating the White Mountains, his apple orchard, his gardens, and the pond with fish jumping out. Truly a masterpiece. When Harry got up on Saturday, he immediately noticed that the living room had been rearranged to hold a large crowd, and the family filled him on the surprise details. During Harry’s long life, he has touched so many people and his varied interests have put him with so many groups – woodworking, tractors, gardening, making cider, the orchard of fruit trees, sapping trees for maple syrup, barbecuing on the grill, fishing at Pierce Pond and Conway Lake, The Little White Church board, town hall jobs, Eaton Village Preservation Society and the Conservation Committee. What a great
life you have led, Harry. My love goes out to all the Fowlers that I know the best: Harry and Judy, Carolyn, Cindy and Terry, Alison and Mark, Kate and Martian, Tory and Tim, Jason and Ivy, Logan, Hayden, Alexandra, Eric and Kim and Olivia. It has been my pleasure to be part of your family, and that goes for Fred, David, and Kim, too. Party on. The opera dinner on Feb. 24 at the Inn at Crystal Lake had more live singing than I’ve ever heard. I counted at least 11 live performances, divided up among Tim Ostendorf, Mary Edes, and Ben DiScipio, who also accompanied on the piano. “Guys & Dolls,” by Loesser attracted the biggest dinner crowd ever with 44 people. What a wonderful night of singing, eating a fabulous meal, and reminiscing with friends. They sang so many well-known songs like “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” “Luck Be A Lady Tonight,” “Get Out You’re Rocking the Boat” and so many others. Huge thanks to Tim, Mary and Ben for the outstanding job they did, to Bobby and all the kitchen staff for a great meal and to our servers, Michael, Aimee, and Jackie. The next opera dinner will be held on Thursday, March 24, and will feature Loewe’s “Cosi fan Tutte.” They started their opera dinners with this wonderful bit of Mozart over six years ago — a quartet of lovers that find out that all is not as it seems. Guest soprano Jessica Graae, who has sung at the Inn many times, will be joining Tim and Lloyd Corson will do the honors on the piano. It should be a
great night. Call today for reservations at 447-2120. $55 per person includes discussions and demonstrations ad a four-course dinner that complements the opera, plus a glass of wine. Not included are additional alcohol, tax, or gratuity. Dinners start at 6:30 p.m. and the opera lectures follow at 7 p.m. Only two more opera dinners remain after this one, so be sure to sign up soon. If you seem to be having money troubles, The Carroll County office of the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension is offering a five-part money management series on Thursday evenings – March 24, 31, April 7, 14 and 28 (no class on April 21) from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Carroll County office of UNH Cooperative Extension on 73 Main Street in Conway. There is a $12 materials fee per person or couple for the series, however no one will be denied based on inability to pay. Participants taking “Making Money Work for You” will learn how to gain control over spending while developing a plan to achieve their financial goals, stretch resources, reduce expenses and reduce debt. Ann Hamilton will teach the series. For more information call UNH Cooperative Extension at 4473834. I would like to wish everyone a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Remember to wear green, look for some four-leaf clovers, speak to the leprechauns, drink green drinks, eat corned beef and cabbage, and enjoy every minute of March 17.
“I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how pleased I am with the hearing aids that were purchased from you. Working in the field that I am in, participating in meetings and facilitating workshops on Depression for the State of New Hampshire, these have improved my life significantly. I can now attend these meetings and present the workshops with more confidence knowing I will hear it all and understand what is being said. I want to thank you for all your help and support. Keep up the good work.” Bruce Drouin, Conway, NH

by Scott Adams
By Holiday Mathis must be done. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll find a major source of bonding with a new friend. This is what was needed in order for the relationship to blossom. Tonight features laughter and possibly dancing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When it’s your turn to deliver your work, you won’t have the luxury of blending into the group. You’ll be out in the open, all eyes on you. And that’s OK because you shine when the pressure is on. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll walk into a situation that is indifferent and turn it into a friendly environment. Another person will walk into the same place and turn it into a hostile environment. This helps you understand your own power. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You still think something was your fault, when, in fact, many factors were involved in the situation. So release the guilt and move on. You’ll feel free just as soon as you do this. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a sharp sense for finding what’s hidden, uncovering the mystery and solving riddles. Additionally, you might locate something that you thought was lost forever. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 15). This year brings intellectual and aesthetic growth. You are alert to opportunity, and over the next five weeks you will seize the chance to serve and earn a profit. April brings a run of good luck in your personal life, and your popularity will be on the rise. In June, you will adopt a new role. There’s a special connection with Virgo and Libra people. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 3, 18, 21 and 46.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are primal instincts to contend with. Perhaps you’ll even be moved to act like a Neanderthal, as someone close to you has a way of stirring an ancient emotion in you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re always on the lookout for new things that make you happy. Note the sounds of the birds’ calls or the smell of lavender soap balls. These are the kind of details that will send you into a lasting good mood. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know what needs to be done around your home, and it’s too much for only one person. Consider posting a “help wanted” sign on a local bulletin board, the Internet or your own refrigerator. You’ll be surprised at who answers. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Moving and changing your environment will bring you luck. Furniture, items on shelves and items in closets are all ideal subjects to be rearranged, reorganized or redistributed to charity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This is a day to let go. Throw away your bad feelings, and dump your grudges. It won’t be a process. You’ll just do it. You’ll overlook your differences and move to a place of acceptance -- it’s easy. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll have new business with old friends and colleagues. When you make an effort to remember only the good things about this person, your business goes smoothly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In the past, you have given a certain person your undivided attention. Now there are others who need your attention as much or even more. You’ll graciously divide your focus, realizing that it simply

READERS OFFER JEALOUS WIFE SOME DOGGONE GOOD ADVICE
DEAR ABBY: You advised “Jealous of the Four-Legged Mistress” (Jan. 31) that her husband, “Monty,” needs to “put her in a higher rank in the pack,” because he pays more attention to “Ginger,” the dog, than he does his wife. My heart ached for Ginger. She’s clinging to the one parent she has left and trying to make sure she doesn’t lose him, too. Ginger and the other dog are suffering from separation anxiety. If dogs don’t have a routine, they have a hard time learning to trust. If “Jealous” wants to make friends with the dogs, she should take them for a daily 30-minute walk. She may have to walk them separately at first, but once they get used to it, she can walk them together. In addition, she should start feeding them. After a few weeks of this routine, I guarantee Ginger will start paying attention to her new mistress, and after a while, “Jealous” will find herself a permanent object of Ginger’s affection. If some chew toys and closed doors don’t improve Monty’s attention to his wife’s physical needs, THEN it’s time to see a marriage counselor. -- MAMA OF A RESCUED DOG DEAR MAMA: Like you, many readers were unwilling to let sleeping dogs lie. They made no bones about offering helpful suggestions. Read on: DEAR ABBY: Many of the behaviors “Jealous” described -- following her husband around and being first to greet him at the door -- are perfectly normal. People keep pets for their devotion and affection, and Ginger is an example of what dogs do that produce rewards for them. I think the real issue is that the wife is concerned her husband is more affectionate toward Ginger. She shouldn’t blame
the dog for doing what comes naturally. -- ERICA IN SACRAMENTO, CALIF. DEAR ABBY: Losing his first wife was traumatic not only for Monty, but also for the two dogs. Perhaps Ginger is more bereft over the loss if she was close to his deceased wife. Animals experience loss, too. Instead of feeling threatened, “Jealous” should talk to a professional who can help her learn to gain Ginger’s trust, loyalty and affection instead of competing with her. It’s possible “Jealous’” physical needs are being neglected because of her attitude. -- JAMIE IN RENO, NEV. DEAR ABBY: Because dogs “love the one they’re with,” “Jealous” should spend quality time with Ginger. Take her for walks, give her treats and win her over with kindness. As a boarding kennel operator, I deal with clingy dogs all the time. It’s my job to make them feel at home and develop a bond with them. Consequently, the pets I take care of love me as much as they do their owners. “Jealous” sounds very insecure. She needs to learn a little about canines to understand that Ginger’s behavior is acceptable. -- DOG LADY IN MICHIGAN DEAR ABBY: I, too, had to race to the door to be the first to get my ex-husband’s attention. I never won. That vindictive mutt wet only on my side of the bed. It grabbed the pot roast from the counter and hid under the bed, and when I reached under to take it back, it bit me! When I screamed in pain, the one who was supposed to love me best yelled, “Don’t hurt the dog!” I am now happily married to an angel of a man who puts me first. No woman needs to take second place to a dog. -MOTHER OF EIGHT IN UTAH
