In sit-down restaurants, an economic indicator

Saturday night Low: 37 Record: -4 (1993) Sunset: 6:54 p.m.

(NY Times) — Have you been eating more at restaurants with waiters rather than fast-food joints? If so, you are not alone, and that in fact is an indication that the American economy is improving. Over the last year, sales at what the government calls full-service restaurants were 8.7 percent higher than in the previous 12 months. That was the fastest pace of growth since the late 1990s, when the economy was booming. Moreover, as is seen in the accompanying charts, that rate was much greater than the rate of growth in sales at limited-service restaurants. Since those numbers became available 20 years ago, that difference has been a reliable indicator of how the economy is going. In tough times, people may still eat out, but they cut back. Full-service restaurants may or may not be expensive. Le Bernardin in Manhattan qualifies, but so does Red Lobster. The range at limited-service places is not nearly as wide. Americans now spend about $220 billion a year at full-service restaurants, and $211 billion at the limited-service places. (They also spend $21 billion at what the government calls “drinking places,” also known as bars. Bar sales are now rising slower than at either type of restaurant, although history does not indicate that has any particular significance for the economy.)

Karzai sharply criticizes U.S. over shooting inquiry KABUL, Afghanistan (NY Times) — President Hamid Karzai chastised the United States on Friday, saying that he was at “the end of the rope” over what he termed the United States’ lack of cooperation in investigating the American soldier accused of going on a rampage earlier this month and killing 16 civilians in southern Afghanistan. Karzai had previously dispatched a delegation to investigate the killings in the

Panjwai district of Kandahar Province, and he said on Friday that American officials did not cooperate with the Afghan inquiry. He made the comments after meeting at the presidential palace in Kabul with relatives of those killed. The Afghan leader also questioned whether only a single American soldier was involved in the massacre, which took place on March 11. He said the accounts of

villagers — many of whom have claimed multiple soldiers took part in the shootings — did not match the American assertion that the killings were the work of a lone, rogue soldier. The Afghan leader’s comments were likely to intensify the sense of crisis that has begun to permeate the relationship between the United States and Afghanistan in recent weeks.

Defendant in Rutgers spying G.O.P. freshmen not as defiant as their reputation suggests case guilty of hate grimes




Saturday High: 57 Record: 62 (2000) Sunrise: 6:52 a.m.

Beware the hobby that eats.” —Benjamin Franklin

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (NY Times) — A jury on Friday convicted a former Rutgers University student, Dharun Ravi, of hate crimes for using a webcam to spy on his roommate kissing another man in their dorm room. The jury also found Ravi guilty of tampering with evidence and witnesses for trying to change Twitter and text messages in which he had encouraged others to watch the webcam. Ravi’s roommate, Tyler Clementi, jumped to his death from

the George Washington Bridge three days after Ravi viewed him on the webcam. The case became a symbol of the struggles facing gay, lesbian and bisexual teenagers and the problem of cyberbullying in an era when laws governing hate crimes have not kept up with evolving technology. Ravi looked down but did not seem to react as the jury forewoman read the verdict on Friday. Clementi’s parents and family sat with arms around one another, leaning forward as they listened to the forewoman speak.

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — House freshmen have been caricatured as the face of the Republican intransigence in Congress, portrayed as a diverse and cacophonous mob standing in the way of Republican leaders and legislative compromise. But an analysis of voting patterns on the most contentious bills in the 112th Congress shows that House members of the Republican Study Committee — a group of both veterans and newcomers that meets weekly to hammer out a conservative agenda — have cast the bulk of “no” votes on big bills, including those important to Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio. The freshmen who have joined the study committee — which was founded in 1973 — play an important role in its renewed clout, having increased its membership to 163 from roughly 110 two years ago. As a group, however, the freshmen are less homogenous and less apt to buck the leadership than the study committee itself is as a whole.

County to finish budget Monday BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — A state representative wants the proposed $26.9 million Carroll County budget to be finished on Monday, according to the county commission chair. On Wednesday, commission chair David Sorensen said delegation chair Rep. Betsey Patten (R-Moultonborough) wants the budget finished on Monday. Sorensen hopes the delegation will also finish the Hale’s Location budget too. During much of the budget process, officials estimated the next budget would create a tax increase of about 17 percent. However, Sorensen said the commission has been able to greatly reduce the increase. Originally, the commission was going to use $500,000 of surplus left over from last year to offset taxes. However, the surplus is larger than expected. Therefore the county can use $1 million of surplus to reduce taxes. Sorensen couldn’t say exactly how much the extra surplus would reduce taxes. The delegation meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the county administration building. Food became a hot topic a short time later in the commission meeting. Rob Horace, food service director for Mountain Home Community, the county nursing home, recommended commissioners stop providing free meals to county employees who are not entitled to the benefit through union contracts and also dropping the free meal benefit from future union contracts. Horace said

in the first two months of this year he’s had to spend $84,535 on food, which is $3,172 over budget. The food service department has taken several measures to control cost increases. Those measures include revising the menu to avoid expensive foods and changing to a more aggressive group purchasing organization. Still, food costs for the first two months of this year are 11.5 percent higher than they were over the same period last year. The reasons for the increased food costs include oil prices, county employees taking portions that are too large and county departments taking meals without reimbursing the nursing home. The nursing home’s cafe also sells meals to the general public at extremely low prices. For instance, a six-ounce sub sandwiche sells for $2. “You can’t get a sub any place else for two bucks,” said Sorensen. Nursing home staff get the meal as part of their compensation. The nursing home pays for its staff meals in its budget. The corrections department reimburses the nursing home for meal costs. Other departments, such as the sheriff and county attorney offices, do not reimburse the nursing home, said Horace. The commission voted 2-1 to end the free meal policy for all departments except the nursing home and jail. The new meal policy starts April 1. Commissioner Asha Kenney objected because she believes the management of the jail and nursing home should also pay for their meals.

Tele-Talk Do you support a $166,794 article for full-day kindergarten in Conway? Why or why not? Conway voters on April 10 will be asked to appropriate $166,794 to go from half-day kindergarten to a full-day program at the Conway, Pine Tree and John Fuller elementary schools. The money will be for three teachers at $54,098 each and $1,500 per school for supplies and equipment. The proposal has the recommendation of the school board but not the budget committee. All-day kindergarten was also recommended by a K-8 Educational Research Committee in 2009 and has the support of the three elementary school principals. More instructional time and fewer out-of-district placements for students who require a longer day are among the benefits cited. But school board member Dick Klement questions the price tag, saying he thinks full-day kindergarten will cost more than projected due to the need for aides. The $166,794 figure being put before voters would add approximately 12 cents per $1,000 property valuation to tax bills. This week’s question is: Do you support a $166,794 article for full-day kindergarten in Conway? Why or why not? Call 733-5822 Saturday and Sunday and leave your comments on our machine. You may fax your responses to 356-8360 or e-mail them to Comments can also be posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page. Results will be published Tuesday.

Lyman III Memorial Downhill up a week, from March 21 to March 14. * Jim Hidden challenges incumbent Willie Farnum for Tamworth selectman. * Bartlett selectman Doug Garland faces two challengers — Ed Furlong and Erik Corbett — in his bid for re-election. see DIGEST page 8

Democracy in action at Freedom Town Meeting on Tuesday. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO)

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, March 17, 2012— Page 9


The Writer and the President It was a meeting of a gothic genius and a political magus. Nathaniel Hawthorne, the novelist from Salem, Mass., and Abraham Lincoln, the politician from New Salem, Ill., didn’t speak to each other — one of the great missed opportunities of history — but Hawthorne did accompany a delegation of businessmen from a Massachusetts whip factory to a White House session with the 16th president in March 1862. That meeting, 150 years ago this month, was nothing remarkable, one of the many sessions a chief executive customarily has with visitors to the capital, and yet it produced remarkable insights about the president. At this event, Lincoln was given what Hawthorne described as “a splendid whip,” a handy tool, perhaps, to keep his Cabinet of rivals together, to move his leading general to action, and by year’s end to overcome the opposition from the South and the skepticism from the North over his Emancipation Proclamation. The 9 a.m. session was late in starting; the president was having breakfast. “His appetite, we were glad to think, must have been a pretty fair one,” Hawthorne wrote, “for we waited about half an hour in one of his antechambers.” Lincoln had a big appetite and he made a big impression, for the group soon glimpsed what Hawthorne described as “the homeliest man I ever saw, yet by no means repulsive or disagreeable.” Hawthorne set forth his observations in a broader essay on his trip to Washington and Virginia that appeared in The Atlantic Monthly. The article is included in the Library of America’s newest volume on the Civil War, an anthology of contemporary accounts, speeches, diary entries and reminiscences covering 1862, the second year of the conflict. As the country observes the sesquicentennial of the war, the observations of one of the nation’s greatest writers on one of the nation’s greatest leaders possess unusual power. Here are some annotated excerpts: • President Lincoln is the essential representative of all Yankees, and the veritable specimen, physically, of what the world seems determined to regard as our characteristic qualities. In this regard Lincoln seems little different from most American presidents, including the modern ones. Theodore Roosevelt personified American vigor at the turn of the last century, Woodrow Wilson stood for American idealism, Franklin Roosevelt for American determination — and, with the New Deal, American experimentation. Later, Harry Truman stood for American practicality in an age of ideology, John Kennedy for American sophistication at a time when American culture was thought to have come of age, Jimmy Carter for American innocence and Ronald Reagan for American optimism. • There is no describing his lengthy awkwardness, nor the uncouthness of his movement; and yet it seemed as if I had been in the habit of seeing him daily, and had shaken hands with him a thousand times in some village street; so true was he to the aspect of the pattern American, though with a certain extravagance which, possibly, I exaggerated still further by the delighted eagerness with which I took it in. James T. Fields, the editor of The Atlantic, objected to this characterization and at his bidding Hawthorne removed it. But Lincoln’s rough-hewn looks were as much a part of his political identity as Kennedy’s handsome bearing and Bill Clinton’s joyful openness.

Lincoln was awkward and homely. He was also the greatest American political figure of his time, perhaps of all time. • A great deal of native sense; no bookish cultivation, no refinement; honest at heart, and thoroughly so, and yet, in some sort, sly — at least endowed with a sort of tact and wisdom that are akin to craft, and would impel him, I think, to take an antagonist in flank, rather than to make a bull-run at him right in front. But, on the whole, I liked this sallow, queer, sagacious visage, with the homely human sympathies that warmed it. Lincoln had uncommon common sense, was wise but not pedantic, honest but crafty. The latter is often ignored. There may have been an internal dishonesty to Lincoln’s emancipation plan (it covered territory over which he had no power), or to his assault on civil liberties (declaring martial law and suspending habeas corpus aren’t ordinarily celebrated), but the overall package was more than a sagacious visage. It was virtuosity in action. • He is evidently a man of keen faculties, and, what is still more to the purpose, of powerful character. As to his integrity, the people have that intuition of it which is never deceived. Make no mistake: Not everyone thought of him as Honest Abe. The rail-splitter was a hair-splitter, too. He was derided by abolitionists and black leaders as too timid, by moderates as too radical, by many as being dishonest not only with the country but also with himself. Was the war to preserve the Union or to free the slaves? Did he believe blacks were equal to or inferior to whites? Should slaves be freed or returned to Africa? Often his answer to questions like this, infuriating to us even 150 years later, was: both. • But the president is teachable by events, and has now spent a year in a very arduous course of education; he has a flexible mind, capable of much expansion, and convertible towards far loftier studies and activities than those of his early life; and, if he came to Washington as a backwoods humorist, he has already transformed himself into ... a statesman. Presidents come to office on a wave of determination: Win the war. Withdraw from the war. Cure poverty, disease, the economy. Reach out to one group, comfort another, put a third in its place. They do a few of these things, often poorly, and then forget about the rest. Reality — a synonym for the modern presidency — intrudes. “One of the things about being president,” Barack Obama said last month, “is you get better as time goes on.” There is, however, plenty of evidence to the contrary. As time went on, Woodrow Wilson’s stubbornness divided the country over the League of Nations, Lyndon Johnson’s demons produced the credibility gap and the Vietnam quagmire, Richard Nixon’s lust for power produced Watergate, Ronald Reagan’s hands-off style produced the Iran-Contra affair, Bill Clinton’s lack of discipline led to impeachment. But Obama, who in the past has harnessed the audacity of hope, has chosen the right role model. Abraham Lincoln got better as time went on. From our perspective 150 years after his encounter with Nathaniel Hawthorne, he’s still getting better. David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

King, Benoit, Chick, all to be commended To the editor: I would like to weigh in on Article 26 of Madison’s 2012 Town Warrant, and the vote as to whether or not to make the road agent position an appointed position rather than an elected position. First, allow me to express my deep respect for Mr. King who appears to be the catalyst for this warrant article. I have attended many Madison town meetings, etc. over the years, and while I do not know Mr. King personally, I have found him to be highly intelligent. His opinions and suggestions seem to be thoroughly analyzed and well thought out. In an era of spend-spend-spend, fiscal irresponsibility and neglect by our elected officials, and the continued onslaught against the taxpayer, I deeply appreciate Mr. King’s fiscal conservatism. I think Madison is a better, more affordable community as a direct result of Mr. King’s efforts. In fact, I find it difficult to think of a single situation in which I have disagreed with him. However, I do not like the idea of giving more power to any government body, which would seem to be the result of a yes vote on Article 26. Generally, even

in local politics, it can be a recipe for abuse. In this case we are being asked to let a two-selectmen majority vote decide who is our road agent, rather than the voters. Furthermore, if Mr. Benoit’s numbers are correct as outlined in his recent letter in The Conway Daily Sun, the town of Madison spends quite a bit less than other communities for road maintenance, and for that Mr. Chick is to be commended and retained. Regardless of Mr. Chick’s methods and maybe a couple of errors in judgment and performance, the overall results speak for themselves. I would humbly request that both Mr. Benoit, whose efforts, time and opinions on behalf of the town of Madison are also to be respected and commended, and Mr. King bring their “A” game to this Saturday’s town meeting. For the benefit of the voters and the town of Madison, clearly explain your positions, back them up with facts and let the democratic process work the way it is supposed to; let the voters speak! The town of Madison is better for both of these men’s efforts! Mike Trabulsie Madison

Ski areas try to hang in there as spring marches in early Page 12 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, March 17, 2012


CONWAY — It ain’t over ‘til the Skiing Fat Lady sings — but she may want to bring lots of suntan lotion and spring ski wax when she heads to the ski slopes this week. Friday’s weather was rainy and cold. Now, for the week ahead, the National Weather Service out of Gray, Maine was predicting sunny skies and highs in the upper 50s on Saturday; mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 60s Sunday; partly cloudy skies and highs into the mid 60s Sunday through Monday night, and sunny skies and highs in the lower 70s Tuesday through Wednesday night, and into the 60s on Thursday. How much those conditions impact snow cover remains to be seen, but with spring officially set to arrive March 20, ski areas are hoping to extend the season for the next few weeks, conditions permitting, as many areas still had good cover heading into this week’s early spring heat wave. Karl Stone, marketing director for Ski NH, agreed Friday that it has been a challenging year for operators, but said that the skiing — thanks to all that snowmaking — has been good this seson, for those who could be convinced to make the drive north to the slopes from the major urban areas of New England to try it out. Stone said skier visits at member resorts range from being comparable to last year, which was the second strongest ever for Ski NH resorts, to being off as much as 20 percent. “It was a slow start to the season,” said Stone Friday on the heels of issuing a press release about upcoming spring events on the slopes, “but from that point we gained momentum steadily and business levels since early January continued strong, as everyone has been catching up but obviously spring has come early. A lack of natural snow presents a challenge not only in terms of snowfall but also in marketing, but I think everyone did a great job getting the word out through social marketing [and other means]. “What did work to our advantage,” added Stone, “was that we had more comfortable temperatures throughout the season. We did not have those long stretches of cold blasts to scare away guests, and we also didn’t have sustained periods of rain during our peak periods, so in that way the weather cooperated. So, people came and enjoyed themselves even if the natural snow wasn’t piled high.” see SKIING page 14

Spring on the slopes With the arrival of the unseasonably warm weather this week, Stone said, areas are hoping spring skiing enthusiasts will keep coming until at least the end of the month, conditions permitting. Areas pressing forward for the weeks to come include Attitash, Bretton Woods, King Pine, Shawnee Peak and Wildcat. Cranmore Mountain Resort announced Friday it would operate on a modified schedule March 17 and 18, and would then re-open for Jen’s Friends/Mountain Meisters racing for the day only March 21. It then plans to close March 22 and 23, and conditions permitting plans to re-open March 24 and 25. Black Mountain this week announced it was calling it a season after Saturday. “We’re closing one week earlier than we had planned. We still generally have a lot of snow,” said Black marketing director Krissy Fraser Thursday, “but with the warmer temperatures that are forecasted, it will make for conditions that are not up to par eventually, so we are closing after Saturday. We will be holding a St. Patrick’s Day spring splash and party.” Dan Houde, marketing director at King Pine Ski Area, and Kathy Bennett, marketing director for Cranmore, said March had been strong up up to this point. Cranmore general manager Ben Wilcox said revenue overall at Cranmore for the season was down 9 percent, but that was good compared to resorts in the state which were off by as much as 20 percent. “People are still discovering Cranmore. With all of the attractions we have added, we feel there is a lot of momentum under our new ownership. That’s going to continue into next year with the addition of a new lift and a new ride, the Soaring Eagle zip ride,” said Wilcox Thursday. He said that Cranmore’s non-skiing amenities — its tubing park, indoor

adventure park, giant swing and mountain coaster — were seen as helping to raise business levels, despite the poor natural snow season. Likewise, Attitash’s Nor-Easter coaster and Bretton Woods’ Canopy Tours were also lauded. Regarding the weather, Houde said, there’s no question that something is afoot with the warm temperatures. “Whether you call it climate change or global warming, I think it’s becoming increasingly apparent that our weather is changing, no matter what the variables may be. No doubt that snowmaking has saved the season once again. Where do I sign up to buy stock in snowmaking technology?” said Houde, noting that King Pine — now in its 50th season — invested in more efficient electric snowmaking prior to this year, an investment which has paid off. Black also switched to the electric generators this year as well. Unlike the snowless winters of 1979’80 and 1980-’81, for that matter, all local areas now have state-of-the-art snowmaking. It’s now a necessity of life for ski areas, notes Ski NH’s Stone. “Our region is relatively lucky in that we have the infrastructure in terms of snowmaking to compensate for low [natural] snowfall, versus out west,” said Stone. Chris Ellms, ski operations director of Bretton Woods, said he is eagerly looking forward to the rest of the ski season — 70 degree temperatures or otherwise. “I’m the eternal optimist,” said Ellms, whose resort still had 53 of its 102 trails open as of Friday. “Spring skiing came a little early this year,” added Ellms, “but 70 degrees, sun and snow is a recipe for a lot of spring skiing fun in my book. So, I’m not seeing a lot of negative in that. We’ll see people come this weekend, and we’ve got events planned every weekend. We’re still planning to go to the first of April, and perhaps Easter [April 8].” Attitash’s Lowell said the cover at his see next page

two mountains — Attitash and Bear Peak — was holding up and that Attitash with its spring mania was poised for a good series of spring ski weeks. For the year leading up to this point, Lowell said, “We’re slightly ahead of last year in terms of skier visits, which we are very proud of. Hopefully, we can hang on to that for the balance of April. The plan is April 1, and we are marching toward that plan, as it is obviously weather dependent.” Attitash and Wildcat are both now owned by Peak Resorts. Lowell said Wildcat — always a spring ski mecca for skiing diehards — plans to stay open through April, but that plan may have to be altered to weekends only should conditions require that change.

New triple lift at Cranmore next season Page 16 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, March 17, 2012


An East Chair “going away” ceremony will be Sunday at 8:40 a.m. at Cranmore. Cranmore plans to replace the 1955-built double chair with a retrofitted triple chair it has acquired from Wachusetts Mountain of Massachusetts. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO)

CONWAY — A new summit triple chair is to be ready at Cranmore for the 2012-13 season, according to general manager Ben Wilcox. Cranmore also plans to add a new Soaring Eagle double seated zip ride in time for the summer season as part of its other attractions such as its mountain coaster, Giant Swing, Bungy Trampoline, summer tubing, aerial adventure park, and summer chairlift rides. The Conway Planning Board ruled at its Jan. 26 meeting that both additions under 123-4.A.5 are not subject to minor or site-plan review because the changes to the site “are insignificant relative to existing development.” The new fixed grip triple is expected to relieve the load on Cranmore’s other base-to-summit lifts, especially its Cranmore Skimobile Quad Express. It is to be built on the mountain’s southeast side between the Koessler and Schneider Trails, starting near the juncture of Tommy’s Trail and Beginner’s Luck, and ending on the summit at the current terminus of the soon-to-be removed East Chair. “It will have an increased vertical in a new location on the south side of the mountain, adding 300 vertical feet compared to the East Double. The lift will be slightly longer than the East Double but has the same number of chairs. The new lift will have 11 towers where the existing has nine towers,” notes Wilcox. The top of the lift will remain in approximately the same location, according to Wilcox. He said the lift base would be moved to the Tommy’s Trail area which would add trails including Gibson, Gibson Chutes, Artist Falls,

“We are excited to be adding this new triple in to the mix here at Cranmore. Due to the age of the East Double, there are no longer parts available to purchase so upgrade options have also become difficult without major retrofitting. This new triple will provide a new experience for our guests who will now find it worthwhile to stay in the East Slope area of the mountain longer, especially during busy days.”

Koessler and Upper Beginner’s Luck to the current East Chair trail access (East Bowl, Easy Street, Gibson Pitch and Schneider). The East Slope experience will go from three to nine trails and the ski vertical will increase from 526 feet to 826 feet. It will increase the uphill capacity for that lift by 50 percent, according to Wilcox. “We are excited to be adding this new triple in to the mix here at Cranmore. Due to the age of the East Double, there are no longer parts available to purchase so upgrade options have also become difficult without major retrofitting. This new triple will provide a new experience for our guests who will now find it worthwhile to stay in the East Slope area of the mountain longer, especially during busy days,” said Wilcox. “The lift base would also act as a third summit access route for skiers, increasing Cranmore’s see next page

Capital improvements eyed at local ski areas BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Although it’s been a strange and challenging winter for the ski business, with March throwing high temperatures into the mix for areas to battle, a few local areas are moving forward with new capital projects while others are contemplating improvements. Attitash Mountain Resort in Bartlett, for example, is adding 70 new tower guns for increased snowmaking for next season, according to general manager John Lowell. “We’re also adding a new terrain features park on Bear Peak,” said Lowell this week, saying the area is making an effort to lure the young skiing and snowboarding market. Cranmore Mountain Resort, meanwhile, is

summit uphill capacity. With this lift, skiers can now take the South Quad Chair to access the base of this new lift which would then deliver them to the summit. The current East Chair can only be accessed from the summit. On busy days skiers will now be able to ride the Lookout Triple; The Skimobile Express or The South Quad/East Triple to access the summit. Adding a third summit access point will help shorten lift lines on all lifts around the mountain.” New Hampshire Electric Cooperative as part of the project is building an underground power line up the lift route to the old cable television tower that it has taken over at the summit. “They will be working on that for six months so the timing is perfect as it will run from the bottom of the new chair. It will be nice to get power to that side so their work will make that possible,” said Wilcox. He said Cranmore had removed 60 seats from its existing North summit triple to allow it to be able to speed that chair up and will use 59 of those for the retrofitted Wachusetts triple which no longer has any seats. New zip ride The new Soaring Eagle double seated zipline is to be located next to Cranmore’s tubing park and is to span approximately 800 to 900 feet long. A 45-foot top pole is to be installed at the top of the tubing park. A 10-by-20-foot deck will be built at the bottom of the tubing park area. Wilcox said the Soaring Eagle Zip Line consists of a two-person double chair seat. Riders will be pulled in the chairs backwards via cable to the top, and then the cable will release the car for a ride down the zip line. “Park City [Resort] just put one in [in Utah],” said Wilcox March 12. “It’s for all ages. What’s nice about it is very user friendly.”

replacing its 1955-built East Double Chair with a retrofitted fixed grip triple it has obtained from Wachusetts Mountain in Massachusetts. Bretton Woods ski operations director Chris Ellms said this week that the resort is mulling possible expansion projects but has yet to get the approval “from the budgeting office,” so stay tuned. King Pine’s Dan Houde said he was not aware of any capital projects as of yet. Black Mountain’s Krissy Fraser said the area invested in a new rope tow this year, and plans to place it in an expanded learning area for next season. She said despite the challenging season, Black saw an increase in some areas of its operations. “People have been staying longer at our mountain with our expanded apres ski entertainment, which has been a huge success,” said Fraser this week.

Work on the new triple chair is to start in April and is to be ready by next ski season, while work on the new Soaring Eagle is scheduled to be completed by July 1, according to Wilcox. Wilcox said it had been harder to find parts for the East Chair. Austrian skimeister Hannes Schneider (18901955) laid out the East Slope prior to his death in April 1955. Chair sale March 18 Cranmore is hosting an East Chair “going away” ceremony at 8:40 a.m. March 18, followed by a reception at the Meister Hut. Cranmore plans to replace the 1955-built double chair with a retrofitted triple chair it has acquired from Wachusetts Mountain of Massachusetts. Cranmore marketing director Kathy Bennett this week said that ski history enthusiasts will be able to purchase 33 of the old lift’s red colored chairs for $500 each. She outlined the bidding process as follows: “On Sunday, between noon and 2 p.m., those people interested in buying a chair for $500 each will get a ticket with a number on it and those will be put in a bucket for a drawing. This will be done in the Ticket House at the Season Pass Desk. “Once all tickets are in,” Bennett said, “we will pull numbers for the chairs to be purchased. We believe there will be 33 chairs available at this time. If more than 33 people want chairs, this is the fair way to draw winners for the chance to buy a chair. If less than 33 people are interested, then all will get a chair in this round.” Should people want to be part of the drawing but be unable to attend, Bennett said they need to call 356-5544 Ext. 310 and provide a valid credit card along with contact details and this will enter them in the drawing. “If they win, their credit card will be charged that day for the chair,” she said. Chairs will be available for pick up later in fall 2012.

rounded head, as he squinched down on a thin branch of a choke cherry by the window. He was as round as a coconut, all body and head, and compressed. see COUNTRY ECOLOGY page 23

Celia Pray is Tin Mountain’s artist of the month ALBANY — Now through the end of March a display of exquisitely, quilted images of fish and nature scenes handcrafted by artist, quilter, Celia Pray, Tin Mountain’s artist of the month, will decorate the walls of the Tin Mountain Nature Gallery on Bald Hill Road in Albany. The public is invited to view artwork Monday through Friday 9 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. and before scheduled nature programs. After earning a bachelor’s of fine arts in painting from Massachusetts College of Art, Celia worked mostly in oil and watercolor format. However, when her children came along she began creating collages from torn up water color paintings, which could be put aside and picked up again when time permitted. The pieces of paper have now become pieces of fabric that make up her individual and unique art quilts. Celia has recently been exploring the dramatic effects of incorporating different fibers in her work. The combined love of appliquéing and exciting play of color with an endless palette of fabrics go into her creations. Pray grew up in the Caribbean and spent eight years at sea sailing to many exotic ports, and has traveled extensively throughout the world. Her quilts draw from these cherished experiences and images she has mentally stored over the years. Celia came to the White Mountains area in 1994 when she and her family

they drop down and catch their meal. Like all owls, they are fearless in their quest, and the little saw-whet will even take on a rat, and consume him. Quite a few surveyors discover this diminutive owl, as they slice through a needled branch or two, and find the owl sitting unperturbed on whatever is left of the stem, close by the interior of the tree. They’ll often comment that the small saw-whet doesn’t move, even after the brushing swipe of the Sandvik axe revealed it. “There he was. Sitting right there — looking back at me.” is quite the common exclamation when viewing this owl in the wild. Far more of us will experience the Northern saw-whet by hearing its peculiar piping notes coming out of the low-lying, coniferous swamp on our property. Its mating calls sound like an old cross-cut saw being sharpened by a whetstone, and hence the bird’s name. You may now hear this on some late winter night, when you let in your dog, as the metallic tooting sounds of the saw-whet drift eerily across the night air, making you wonder what that odd sound could be.

Peak lists have expanded your own. see next page

dramatically the last few decades, and reached unprecedented heights, such as the newly popular “Grid,” which is climbing all 48 New Hampshire 4,000 footers every month of the year. Perhaps resulting from that, though a little less lofty a goal, is doing all the 4,000 footers in one winter. A more specialized group, would be the people (and dog) who accompanied Randy Pierce of Nashua this winter, the first blind person to climb all 48 New Hampshire 4000 foot peaks in one winter season. In the past, media that helped people network to find groups of hikers to join up with were limited to publications like the magazine AMC Outdoors, delivered monthly to Appalachian Mountain Club members. This is still a great way to find a group to hike with. Chapter hikes are listed, and vary in difficulty. Two things have revolutionized hiking recently — social media, and equipment. Websites such as Views From the Top and Rocks On Top have given a forum for information and contacts. To become a member of these sites and be able to post messages, one must follow the time tested method of having a current member recommend you, though anyone else can go to them and gain valuable information. In conjunction with this, constant improvement in clothing, such as ultra-light jackets that wick off moisture remarkably well, have made cold weather hiking much more comfortable. Also, traction devices called MICROspikes, allow you to go light and fast on the well packed trails see HIKING page 27

Two weeks of drawing-inspired events in Tamworth, Sandwich March 24 to April 4 Tamworth — Draw On! Arts Council of Tamworth, in collaboration with the Cook Memorial Library, the Chocorua Public Library, The Other Store, The Remick Museum, the Tamworth Lyceum, and the Samuel Wentworth Library, invites you to celebrate drawing all around town from Saturday, March 24 through Saturday, April 7. Draw On! is a community festival introduced by The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Conn. in 2006 to bring together people of all ages through the simple act of drawing. Innovative workshops and special events encourage participants to express themselves in new and imaginative ways. Last year Draw On! welcomed more than 11,500 people from all over the Northeast. They attended

drawing-related events in local libraries, schools, museums, senior centers, art guilds, local businesses, nature centers, historical societies, and recreation centers. This year attendance is expected to reach 13,000, with participating organizations to date in over eight states. Ongoing drawing opportunities for all ages will be available in Tamworth during the two weeks of Draw On! Visit the Cook Library to draw Art Cards for trading (thanks to Louise Wrobleski for instructions and inspiration), the Chocorua Library to draw images from books, The Other Store to draw, doodle and design at the tables, and the Tamworth Lyceum to add to the giant communal wall drawing. Drawing materials will be available

at all locations, or bring your own! Area residents will also have a number of opportunities to work with teachers on various drawing techniques. On Saturday, March 24, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., during the Remick Museum’s maple sugaring day, artist and museum educator Kathy Johnson will lead a group drawing of the Remick Farm and maple sugaring events. On Tuesday, March 27, from 4:00 to 5:00 PM at the Cook Library, create individual and group drawings using the Zentangle method ( with artist Chris Clyne. On Saturday, March 31 from 3 to 5 p.m. the Tamworth Lyceum will host a class with artist Jamie Oakes on the traditional drawing technique Chiaroscuro. Famed artist

such as Leonardo da Vinci and Caravaggio used this technique to create rich field of depth between the background and foreground. RSVP to so that we will have sufficient supplies on hand. On Wednesday, April 4, from 4 to 5 p.m., artist Jay Rancourt will lead a paste paper drawing and collage greeting card workshop for all ages. And in Sandwich, on Friday, March 30, drawing materials will be available to patrons of the Wentworth Library all day. All events other than maple sugaring day are free, Donations to the libraries are always welcome. For more information, visit, call 323-8104, or visit

to 4,000 footers. More recently still, light traction devices called Hillsound Trail Crampons are proving safer that MICROspikes on terrain that varies in steepness. I will be checking out a pair of these before the ice melts on the higher peaks, and write about that experience. But on a much more mellow note, if you aren’t focusing on the 4,000 footers or other peak lists, what type of groups do you go hiking with? In this age of special interests, spiritual groups from either a church or meditation group are ideal for group hikes. A few weeks ago, folks in such a group that I attend fairly frequently, initiated a group hike one Sunday afternoon. We car pooled in three cars and headed over to Denmark, Maine, and the neighborhood of one group member. Parking on a dirt side road, we hiked up some old logging roads on the south side of Pleasant Mountain. Our “goal” was an open ledge part way up the mountain. Our objective, was to enjoy an outing together on a beautiful winter day in a unique

mountain environment. In the photo accompanying this column, it is easy to see that we reached both our goal and achieved our objective. Another ideal group to go hiking with is one with a focused objective in local ecology. For example, a group that goes out in an area to find animal tracks, and in so doing, gains a larger picture of the animals in the area, learns more about undeveloped corridors animals have in the area to travel from one wild area to another, and think about what development should be discouraged to maintain those corridors. This is a fantastic agenda for a group, and also requires some leaders with specialized knowledge. Such groups do exist. Back to the general concept of groups, recently I was talking to a local who said that when he went to Kennett High back in the 1970s, you were encouraged to go on local day hikes with the school. He said that this was a good thing to do. In one way, times have changed, and what was once possible, is now less so. But, if anything, the need for such outdoor group activity has only increased.

By Holiday Mathis and make a soul connection, as well. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Gender differences will be a part of today’s story. You may realize your own subtle biases and make slight adjustments to your approach with the opposite sex. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Using your charming social graces may just help you get exactly what you want. However, you’ll only be able to keep your object of desire if you also happen to be qualified to receive it in the first place! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A project is coming together, and there are many people around you who could help you move things along. The one whose personality and skills are equal to and extremely different from your own will be the perfect partner. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your body is getting stronger, and because of this you also feel more in control of your emotions than you did earlier in the week. There will be a sense that a pressure is off of you for now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Loved ones may have expectations that you are unaware of, and it’s important to be open. Inquire about what they think should happen and what they are really wanting from you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 17). People will like what you’re doing and giving. Receiving compliments with grace takes practice, and you’ll get plenty of it this year. Your connection with a special friend grows continually stronger. Spring brings different ways of getting around and new rituals and habits. You’ll cash in on long-term projects in June. Taurus and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 1, 24, 19 and 40.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are becoming wiser as you get to know yourself better. Research your past, and compare it to the present. Family pictures and mementos will be a springboard to broaden your sense of who you are. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You often get accused of being stubborn -- and for good reason. However, that same fixed quality may be your saving grace today. Besides, you have earned the right to be unreasonable once in a while. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be attracted to the tasks that take a herculean effort. You may have the sense that a job is too overwhelming to even know where you should start. Start where you are and with what you have. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Each new generation has the sense that what worked for their parents isn’t going to work for them. And they’re mostly right. The world is changing fast. But past generations still have much to offer you today, so listen up. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Taking care of household tasks is more challenging than you thought it would be. Things have a way of very quickly becoming a mess. Devote twice as much time to getting your surroundings in order than you think it will take. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You strive to listen more than you talk, and this habit will put you in a prime position. People love it when you listen to them. You might be the only one who makes someone feel heard. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your aesthetic is honed now, and you’ll be most attracted to people who have similarly strong tastes and a definitive style. However, be sure to look deeper

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, March 17, 2012— Page 29

Today is Saturday, March 17, the 77th day of 2012. There are 289 days left in the year. This is St. Patrick’s Day. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 17, 1912, the Camp Fire Girls organization was incorporated in Washington, D.C., two years to the day after it was founded in Thetford, Vt. On this date: In A.D. 461 (or A.D. 493, depending on sources), St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, died in Saul. In 1762, New York’s first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place. In 1776, British forces evacuated Boston during the Revolutionary War. In 1910, the U.S. National Museum, a precursor to the National Museum of Natural History, opened in Washington, D.C. In 1941, the National Gallery of Art opened in Washington, D.C. In 1942, six days after departing the Philippines during World War II, Gen. Douglas MacArthur declared, “I came through and I shall return” as he arrived in Australia to become supreme commander of Allied forces in the southwest Pacific theater. In 1950, scientists at the University of California at Berkeley announced they had created a new radioactive element, “californium.” In 1966, a U.S. midget submarine located a missing hydrogen bomb which had fallen from an American bomber into the Mediterranean off Spain. In 1970, the United States cast its first veto in the U.N. Security Council. (The U.S. killed a resolution that would have condemned Britain for failure to use force to overthrow the white-ruled government of Rhodesia.) In 1992, in Illinois, Sen. Alan Dixon was defeated in his primary re-election bid by Carol Moseley-Braun, who went on to become the first black woman in the U.S. Senate. One year ago: The U.N. Security Council paved the way for international air strikes against Moammar Gadhafi’s forces, voting to authorize military action to protect civilians and impose a no-fly zone over Libya. U.S. drone missiles hit a village in Pakistan; U.S. officials said the group targeted was heavily armed and that some of its members were connected to al-Qaida, but Pakistani officials said the missiles hit a community meeting, killing four Taliban fighters and 38 civilians and tribal police.

Help Wanted

Help Wanted

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: One of my sister’s best friends, “Tara,” has had a crush on me since we were kids. She’s 21 and I’m 25. My sister always knew about it, but never told me. I had a crush on Tara, too, but I was too shy to tell her. I moved out of state when I turned 18, but Tara still lives there. She and my sister keep in touch. Now that I’m back in town, Tara has been coming to visit me. We have no physical contact, only verbal. During one of the visits she confessed her crush and so did I. The trouble is, Tara got married a year ago and has a 2-month-old baby with her husband. She says she hasn’t been happy in her marriage and has filed for a divorce. We want to be together, but want to wait for the divorce to be final before starting a relationship. I suspect that she’s only divorcing her husband to be with me. Am I being too quick to judge? Is it a bad idea to be with her? Should we just remain good friends? I need a woman’s opinion. -- UNCERTAIN IN TEXAS DEAR UNCERTAIN: If you and Tara are serious about not starting a relationship until her divorce is final, then the answers to your questions will become apparent during that process. But please remember, ending her marriage will probably not cause her husband to vanish into the ether. Because he’s the father of her baby, he will be part of your lives forever. DEAR ABBY: My husband, “Simon,” is a workaholic. I didn’t know him long before I married him, which was a mistake. He never adapted to being part of a couple. His rewards all came from work -- the paychecks, kudos from clients and fellow employees, and others saying what a good provider he was. He bought our kids’ love with presents, not presence.

He was gone at dawn, came home after the kids were in bed, volunteered to work on his “off” days and usually stayed later than scheduled. He kept busy with everyone and everything except us. I raised our children alone and worked outside the home as well. I took them to their sports events, extra activities and to the synagogue. We didn’t need the “extra” money, but he was never satisfied, always wanting more. I was faithful to a ghost, living alone and crying for too long. After 30 years I realized I didn’t miss him anymore. He had broken my heart and fractured my dreams. It’s too late for me to start again and find love. Abby, tell young wives to trust their hearts and priorities. They deserve warmth, not cold cash. -- ALONE NOW BY CHOICE IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR ALONE: What a sad story. You married someone who may have had such an overwhelming fear of poverty that he sacrificed the joys of family for financial security. While you may not have had romance, I’m sure you have earned the love of your children. Allow yourself to enjoy what your husband has accumulated. And if you’ve had enough of solitude, consider this: It’s never too late to find love. People of every age do it every day, but first you need to find it within yourself. Unless you do, your bitterness will spill over onto every relationship you have. TO MY IRISH READERS: “May the most you wish for “be the least you get. “May the best times you’ve ever had “be the worst you will ever see.” Happy St. Patrick’s Day! -- LOVE, ABBY

Camp Canine back for fifth season with discount for early registration

FRYEBURG — Assistance Canine Training Services (A.C.T.S.) of Center Tuftonboro announces its fifth season of Camp Canine this coming July. Each year this program has matched puppies in training with children between the ages of 10 and 14 to teach them how to work with and train service dogs. A.C.T.S. is a non-profit organization that trains service dogs for people with physical disabilities. New this year is a discount for anyone registering for camp before April 15. During each one week session of Camp Canine, campers will be assigned one of the A.C.T.s. puppies in training to work with. Each dog and camper team will be together for the week and will be working on the skills needed to complete each puppy’s training as a service dog. Puppies range in age from 8 weeks to 2 years and are all at different levels so campers will see dogs at all levels of training. Each day of camp includes lots of time working with the dogs on a wide variety of skills. Campers will learn basic training techniques and will also learn how to use clicker training to teach their puppy partners service dog tasks like turning on and off light switches, tugging open doors, fetching things, and pressing buttons. Socialization is an important part of service dog training and so campers will work with their puppies on socialization games and exercises. The nature of working with puppies means serious working time has to be combined with fun play time, so campers will enjoy activities like agility and rally obedience games. During camp dogs are incorporated into fun activities like Tic Tack Toe, Musical Chairs, and Simon Says. In past seasons campers have had the opportunity to test their newly learned skills by taking the puppies on a field trip. Past camp seasons

Sara Young-Knox elected selectmen, Blake and DiMarino on school board

Tuesday was town elections and town meeting. Fifty-eight people came out to vote. Elected to the school board were Cecilia Blake and Albert DiMarino; as moderator, Ed Alkalay, and to be treasurer and clerk, Kim Guptill. Also elected were town officers: as moderator, Ed Alkalay, as selectman, Sara Young-Knox, as town clerk/tax collector, Kathy Vizard, as treasurer, Mary Leavitt, as road agent, Curtis Coleman, as trustees of the trust fund, Tina Sdankus and Kim Guptill, as cemetery trustee, Jaimie Sabina. The proposed zoning amendments on the ballot all passed. Congratulations to all who were elected. The school meeting began at 7 p.m. and as always, the school budget passed easily. The town meeting began at 7:20 p.m. and took considerably longer. On the warrants, the town agreed to increase the number of members of the conservation commission to five and allow them to manage the Albany Forest. Then we got to the budget. The legislative body chose to turn down a raise of $1,000 for the clerk/tax collector, $313 for the deputy clerk/tax collector, $300 for the treasurer as well as the raise given by the selectmen to the administrative assistant. They did, however, increase

Article 10, the town picnic and holiday party, from $500 to $2,500. There was some debate over the funding for the Blue Loon, but eventually that was passed. The budget for the year 2012 changed to $580,207 an increase over the printed budget of $1,396. All other warrant articles passed as presented. An announcement regarding the May 5 Valley Pride Day was made. Volunteers are needed for clean-up. Please call the selectmen’s office to help out on that day. Also announced was the Albany Facebook page as AlbanyNH:notices and events. Check it out. At the weekly selectmen’s meeting, Joe Ferris was elected chair of the board. Rob Nadler asked the board to appoint the five members of the newly formed conservation commission. The appointments were as follows: Rob Nadler and Cort Hansen to three year terms, Jack Rose and Dick VanDyne to two year terms, and Josephine Howland to a one year term. Steve Knox was appointed as an alternate for three years. Rob noted that their meetings would be the first Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. Tin Mountain: March 24 is the annual first season benefit dinner and auction to be held at Fryeburg Academy at 5 p.m. Call 447-6991 for res-

Patricia Marie Downing Surette

Patricia Marie Downing Surette, 78, passed away on March 15, 2012, after a long illness. Born on January 1, 1934 in East Boston, she was the only child of Sanford Downing and Lillian McEachern Downing. She spent her childhood years in Boston, and then moved with her parents to Rumford, Maine, where she graduated high school. She attended Westbrook Junior College in Portland, Maine, and moved back to Boston upon graduation, where she worked as a medical secretary. She married Richard Surette in 1963. They lived for a few years in Norwood, Mass. and moved to North Conway in 1966. As members of the Prospectors Ski Club, it was their love of skiing which brought them to the Mount Washington Valley, and eventually led to their decision to move with their young family. She worked with her husband Dick in their family business, Fly Tyer Magazine, and also worked for a number of years for Children Unlimited in Conway. Her greatest work was with her family as a wife and mother. She loved skiing, the outdoors, family life, the Catholic Church, and a good mystery novel. She

lived with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) for almost five years, and dealt with this with grace, good humor, a positive attitude, and a smile for all. The family acknowledges and wishes to thank all caregivers and friends who helped over those years, especially Timberland Home Care and the Fryeburg Nursing Home. She leaves behind five children and five grandchildren: her son, David, his wife, Susie, and their two daughters, Isabella and Julianna; her son, Peter, his wife, Sharon, and their daughter, Erin; her son, Jim, and his wife, Sarah; her son, Stephen, his wife, Lisa, and their, daughters, Sidney and Olivia; and her daughter, Kathleen. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Wednesday, March 21, at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church in North Conway. Visiting hours will be Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. the Furber and White Funeral Home in North Conway. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Children Unlimited.

Effingham Town Column

Henry Spencer 539-4964

Town has new webpage Here are the results of Tuesday’s election of town officials etc.: Selectman one three-year term: Henry Spencer, 149, John Meisner, 90, Ronald Witham, 10; for town clerk: Marilynn Maughn, 229: Treasurer, Laurie Caldwell, 228: supervisor check list Cheryle Feirick, 33; trustee trust funds, Susan Yakutis, 18; trustee library, Celine Bergeron, 223, and Carol Phister, 225; Planning board two three-year terms: Paul Potter, 50, George Bull, 47, Mike Cahalane; ZBA Mike Cahalane, 194; budget committee two-year term, Tim Eldridge, 209, and three-year term Jim Morris, 31. The fact that Mr. Mike Cahalane won seats on both the planning board and zoning board of adjustment presents a small problem as only on member of the planning board can serve on two land use boards. Currently Mr. Jori Augenti serves on both the planning board and zoning board of adjustment. This will have to be worked out between the concerned board members and the town moderator prior to swearing in on Saturday. Please know that these are not the ‘Official’ results but come as reported moments after the count was made Tuesday night. It can be hoped that the official results will soon be posted on the town’s new webpage at Which brings us to the big news again: we have a webpage. Type in and you’re there. It has been mentioned in the column before and probably will be again; this new town web page is a work in progress and it’s early innings yet. Let’s all hope that this service becomes a good way for those with interests to learn, those with problems to initiate conversations towards solutions, those with municipal business to save a trip to the office and those with notes and expression of gratitude to post their thoughts. Early mud season: Your reporter can report that for the first time in almost 21 years his dirt road has deep muddy ruts. Rumor abounds that this is true on almost all our dirt roads. Now winter and spring pot holes have always found your reporter’s particular dirt road to be a fine place to

gather and pro-create, but deep muddy ruts are something particular to this year’s early thaws and untimely snow melt. The ground will thaw deeper, the moister will percolate down and the mud will dry but meanwhile you worry that actually getting stuck while leaving or arriving home is a good probability, and drinking your morning cup of coffee in the car, well, it is sort of out of the question. It’s a fairly good bet that road graders will be out as soon as it will be not only possible but effective. The term mud season exists for a reason. History proves that in the past it was a whole season, you really couldn’t get there from here, as the saying goes, for around a month. Look at only four or five days of worrisome mud as an advancement in road technology and a blessing of the 21st century. But patience is a virtue and a couple of days of muddy ruts leave us all wondering why it is taking so long to have a nice smooth dirt road out front; one day after road grading would even be effective would be great, two days seems reasonable. We have a lot of dirt roads. From the Historical Oracle, a reliable source: Concerning early thaws, mud and the excavation of graves. It seems that this year’s early thaw and attendant problems has presidents circa 1972 and 84 in which years there is proof positive that in what would normally be considered mid-winter the ground was thawed enough to easily dig a grave. Considering the difference between dealing with abnormal mud conditions or the access to an easily dug grave might ease frustrations: for about two days.

Rep. Norelli to update Democrats at county meeting in Wolfeboro

WOLFEBORO — Former N.H. House Speaker and current Minority Leader Terie Norelli will brief Carroll County Democrats on recent and impending action of the state Legislature at a general meeting in the Wolfeboro Inn, 90 North Main Street, Wolfeboro, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 20. Attendees have the option of gathering a few minutes before 7 p.m. for the meeting (free) with Rep. Norelli, or joining colleagues at 5:30 p.m. for dinner – a fixed menu at $20. To enable the Wolfeboro Inn to plan for the required number of meals, those intending to come for dinner are asked to RSVP to Rep. Norelli, of Portsmouth, represents Rockingham County’s District 16, serves on the Rules Committee and is the only Democrat ever elected Speaker of the N.H. House. She served two terms as House Speaker from 2006 through 2010 and is currently the minority leader. She has been at the forefront in the current battle over contraceptive rights and a champion of equality for women throughout her career; she has served as co-chair of the Reproductive Rights caucus for 10 years, the Sexual Assault Support Services Board of Directors, and the advisory board of the Portsmouth Feminist Health Center. Under Norelli’s leadership in the House, a Democratic majority crafted budgets aimed at minimizing the effects of the “great recession” in New Hampshire as compared to other states and passed legislation dealing with educational, social, and environmental issues. She is now leading a Democratic minority in defense of women’s rights, voting rights, labor rights, educational institutions, and what’s left of the social services safety net. She is well positioned to explain what is happening in the legislature, why it is happening, and the likely consequences if it all does happen. In her legislative career Norelli has served on various committees including finance, and was ranking Democrat on the House Science, Technology and Energy Committee. Before election to the House, Norelli was a math teacher at Winnacunnet High School.

It’s all over but the aloe BY JASON ROBIE

Today is my last day. Well, to be fair, it is my last “Friday” in Florida. I have been waiting for my new housing to be remodeled and have spent the last couple weeks working on my tan (and working on a couple websites). As I prepare to load up the truck, with a newly repaired air conditioner, I am faced with the inevitable and daunting task of moving from a storage unit into my new home. Fortunately, when I was moving out of my old house, I did a little bit every weekend for about a month. This allowed me to take my time and use a little strategy so phase II would not be so miserable. Let’s look at a few suggestions that I picked up along the way that might help you make a move on your own. I’ll admit I am fortunate to only be moving myself (and Jason Robie Remy). I have a good friend who offered to cat-sit for a couple weeks and eliminating him from the equation made things a bit simpler. If you can pawn your pets off on a good friend, I’d highly recommend it. It makes cleaning and leaving doors open much simpler and allows you one less thing to have to think about. That said, I do miss my little buddy and can’t wait to get home, get settled and get him back. The other advantage I had was the ability to move myself over the course of a couple weeks. The closing or “move date” was set about a month out so I was able to plan accordingly. This gives the benefit of selectively packing up rooms and “stuff ” at your own pace. I made six or seven trips to the liquor store for boxes and started picking and packing away. Spare bedrooms, seasonal clothing, rarely used kitchen items and most of the items in the basement or garage are perfect for this process. For people with children this offers a great opportunity for them to help out and start to pack up their own rooms. Stuffed animals, toys and other non-vital items are perfect for early packing and can simplify moving day significantly. Labeling is critical to the success of the move and the minimization of stress during the unpacking process. Some experts recommend color-coding of boxes or some other fancy technique. I simply used a good quality (and thick) marker and some common sense. Because you will have started early, you can have multiple boxes filling up at the same time. The kitchen is filled with lots of items of widely varying size. I kept two or three boxes handy and would fill them based on the size and shape of the item. Since they were all already labeled with “kitchen,” I will know where to find them when I get back to New Hampshire. I also kept this part very simple. I have about 10 boxes labeled “office.” I don’t need to know their contents; I just need to know in what room of the house they need to end up. When I mentioned the children’s toys earlier, I used the phrase “non-vital” with some hesitation. I can assure you, at 8 years old, my stuffed see ROBIE page 43

Well kept and well priced This week’s Home of the Week is a three-bedroom double-wide in Tamworth,.

TAMWORTH — This large, well kept double-wide in the Tamworth Pines Cooperative has central air conditioning, efficient gas heat and water and is in a co-op where everyone has an equal share of ownership and an equal say in managing the park because it is the owners of the homes who actually own the park. One of the other benefits of owning in a co-op is that there is special financing available for co-ops from the non-profit Community Loan Fund. This allows a buyer to have much less of a downpayment and to accept seller credits. This double-wide has three bedrooms and two full baths and not only has a beautiful setting on a quiet street but has an excellent layout with high ceilings and spacious rooms. A screened in porch runs across the back and you’re only walking distance to White Lake State Park for swimming or snowmobiling. The home is priced at $54,000. MLS number is 4126173. Listing agent is Bonnie Hayes of Select Real Estate in Conway. Contact her at (603) 447-3813 or bonnie@ for additional information or to make arrangements for a showing. Or visit the website at

The home has 1,456 square feet of space.

dog was extremely vital to my happiness. That said, a move is a fantastic time to do some hoeing out. I tend to lean toward the life of a minimalist these days, so every season I find myself donating clothing and other items to the local thrift store. If I have not used it or worn it in at least a year, it ends up on the chopping block. If you don’t work this way on a regular basis, a move is the perfect time to do some “filtering” and rid yourself of some unnecessary clutter. While it is a little challenging to hold a yard sale in March in New Hampshire, the benefits of the Internet and your social network of friends and family can come in quite handy here. I unloaded a plow truck, a kayak, an air compressor and some hiking gear in a matter of weeks. Not only did I not have to move or pack them up I also made a little cash. If you have the time and are organized enough, this is a fantastic process to go through before your house is even listed. Your real estate agent will thank you for cleaning up the clutter and the potential buyer will appreciate the empty spaces in your home. I promise you the main concern we have with new listings is all the “stuff ” people have throughout their homes. Get it cleaned up and cleaned out before that first showing and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the results. My appliances stayed with the house, so a good thorough cleaning was all that was needed. The buyers moved right in on the day of closing so I never even unplugged the fridge. If you are taking yours with you, a little precaution can pay dividends down the road. Cleaning the fridge with some disinfectant or even a simple solution of vinegar and water can keep them fresh during the move and even storage if that is needed. f you can’t leave the door ajar, be sure to dry the inside out completely after washing it. This keeps mold and mildew at bay and will make for a more pleasant experience when you first open that door. While we’re on appliances I’ll offer this other little tidbit. Get help! After years of chiropractors and physical therapy (and many days spent in bed or on the couch in pain) I have finally learned to ask for assistance when moving large items. Not only is it simply safer for you and the item being moved, not to mention your sheetrock, but it makes the move more fun and far less stressful. If you have friends like mine, some pizza and cold beer are almost always payment enough. Most of us are pretty good with fragile items. I learned the hard way that leaving breakables

Most people dread moving (and rightfully so). It is one of the top five most stressful things we go through and tends to be a ton of work. Not only is your life turned upside down and dumped into boxes, but that sense of home and feeling grounded is nowhere to be found. tucked inside a sweater drawer is not always the best option. Pack these things separately and well padded and labeled. It will remind you to leave them at the back of the truck or at the top of a pile where they won’t get crushed. Because I started quite early, I kept a separate box in the corner of my living room for the items I would need throughout the move. This included clothing, medicine, toiletries, a few office supplies, some client information and even all my tax stuff (it is that time of year). It was very convenient

to have a single place to go for whatever I might need during the last month. This also keeps those items from being tucked away at the back of the storage unit and nearly impossible to find. Most people dread moving (and rightfully so). It is one of the top five most stressful things we go through and tends to be a ton of work. Not only is your life turned upside down and dumped into boxes, but that sense of home and feeling grounded is nowhere to be found. Add the fact that you are dealing with one of the largest financial transactions in your life and you have a recipe for high blood pressure and short tempers. Moving into a new home should be an exciting new chapter in your life. If you can stretch this out over a few weeks, take the time to be organized and methodical, and you get some friends to help you out, my hope is that you’ll find it a more pleasant process.

Seniors and young adults will influence U.S. housing markets WASHINGTON — Aging baby boomers and their echo boomer children will significantly impact trends in the nation’s housing market over the next 20 years. In a new report released by the Bipartisan Policy Center, “Demographic Challenges and Opportunities for U.S. Housing Markets,” researchers at the National Association of Realtors®, The Urban Institute, and the University of Southern California analyze key demographic trends and their likely influence on housing and homeownership in the U.S. Over the next two decades, the aging baby boomer generation will swell the nation’s senior population by 30 million. That demographic shift will likely help increase the supply of housing, since people over age 65 typically release much more housing than they absorb. “The Northeast and Midwest are most likely to see a large number of older homeowners selling their homes to younger homeowners as the baby boomers age,” said National Association of Realtors’ chief economist Lawrence Yun. “This increased supply could mean additional buying opportunities for echo boomers. That generation will absorb 75-80 percent of the available inventory of owner-occupied housing by 2020.”

The echo boom generation includes nearly 65 million people born between 1981 and 1995. National Association of Realtors’ analysis illustrates the potential impact of economic and housing policy on this generation’s demand for housing as they come of age. “Housing, jobs and the economy are inextricably connected,” said Yun. “A strong recovery with favorable housing market conditions would encourage substantial growth in echo boomer households, which would help absorb the current vacant inventory and stabilize conditions for residential construction. Under a reasonable ‘middle’ recovery scenario, approximately 12 million new households will be formed over the next decade, requiring construction of up to 15 million new housing units.” National Association of Realtors’ president Moe Veissi noted that current market trends favor would-be homeowners of all ages. “As the supply of rental housing continues to fall, rents are increasing,” said Veissi, brokerowner of Veissi & Associates Inc., in Miami. “At the same time, affordability for homeowners is at a record high. For buyers who qualify and are ready to assume the responsibilities of owning a home, opportunity is knocking.”

Realtors praise finance agency for banning private transfer fees WASHINGTON— The following is a statement by National Association of Realtors president Moe Veissi: “As the leading advocate for homeownership and housing issues, National Association of Realtors applauds the Federal Housing Finance Agency for

issuing a final rule to restrict Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Home Loan Banks from investing in mortgages encumbered by private transfer fee covenants. see FEES page 46

Ninety-nine housing markets showing improvement WASHINGTON — The tally of housing markets showing measurable improvement reached 99 in March, according to the National Association of Home Builders/First American Improving Markets Index (IMI), released this week. Currently 33 states (including the District of Columbia) are represented by at least one market on the list. The index identifies metropolitan areas that have shown improvement from their respective troughs in housing permits, employment and house prices for at least six consecutive months. The 99 markets on the March IMI represent a net gain of one from February, with 31 metros being added and 30 markets slipping from the list, due primarily to incremental softening in house prices. Notable new entrants on

the IMI in March include Orlando, Fla.; Rochester, N.Y.; Columbus, Ohio; and Austin and San Antonio, Texas. Meanwhile, Anchorage; Iowa City; Washington, D.C.; and Jackson, Miss. all returned to the list as a result of recent revisions in employment data. “In March, 68 metros retained their status as improving housing markets, while 31 new markets joined the list and 33 states had at least one entry on it,” said National Association of Home Builders’ chairman Barry Rutenberg. “Meanwhile, 10 states now have four or more metros on the improving markets list, with Texas’s 12 entries topping all others. The point is that economic conditions have been consistently strengthening in a diverse array of individual markets nationwide.”

FEES from page 45

developers or investors. “NAR agrees with the exemption of private transfer fees paid to certain organizations, including some home owner, condominiums, and cooperative associations for funding capital reserves, capital improvements, upgrades and major repairs. “FHFA believes that some private transfer fees have a legitimate place in real estate markets and should therefore be exempted from the rule; however, FHFA must ensure that the fees paid are reasonable and fully disclosed to home buyers well in advance of closing and that there be some direct benefit to the home owner.”

“NAR has long been vocal in its opposition to private transfer fees since there is virtually no oversight on where or how fee proceeds can be spent, on how long a private transfer fee may be imposed, or on how the fees should be disclosed to home buyers – and this often places an inappropriate drag on the transfer of property. “To that end, we fully support FHFA’s decision to ban private transfer fees, which we believe increase the cost of homeownership, provide no benefit to home buyers and do little more than generate revenue for
