CRAWFORD NOTCH — The woman searchers found near the summit of Mount Jackson on Sunday could wind up being charged for her rescue, even
though the rescuers who found her credit her skill and preparedness for her survival. “She’s alive today because she was smart,” said Rick Wilcox, president of Mountain Rescue Service, the volunteer
rescue sevice that found Julie Horgan. Horgan, 61, of Milton, Mass., spent Saturday night outside at almost 4,000 feet, but she was neither hypothermic nor frostbitten when searchers found see HIKER page 10

BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The cuts may only be precautionary but they sure seemed real to the 150 people who packed into Kennett Middle School Thursday night during a three-hour meeting when administrators unveiled their $1.3 million cut list.

Collectors draw the line at 1950s (NY Times) — Prop designers and dealers by trade, Kenyan Lewis and Grace Kelsey are collectors of early 20th-century Americana, objects that date, roughly, from the end of the Victorian era through the machine age. The line is drawn at the 1950s: “We don’t get into that stuff,” said Mr. Lewis, 39. He and Ms. Kelsey, 33, gave up their apartment on the Lower East Side in 2008, and now rent a house in Accord, N.Y., a hamlet about two and a half hours north of Manhattan. When they moved, their belongings filled two 26-foot moving trucks; they made an additional trip with one of the trucks, plus five more trips with a minivan. The contents included stacks of Popular Mechanics magazines from the 1930s and 1940s, vintage patterns and buttons, tube radios and old fans, camp blankets, books, decanters. Throughout the house, which dates from 1890, the new is scarcely evident, except in the office, where a worn 30-foot American flag is draped along a window near three computer workstations, and in the modestly sized attic, where a 73-inch TV looms like a drive-in movie screen. (Living in Accord, they don’t get out much, they explained; Netflix provides entertainment.)

Scores dead in blast at Yemen weapons factory
SANA, Yemen (NY Times) — An explosion at a weapons factory in southern Yemen Monday morning killed scores of people, according to a hospital in the southern city of Jaar. On Sunday, militants took over government buildings in Jaar, known as a Qaeda haven, as well as the nearby factory in the same province, Abyan. Some news reports said that the militants took some material and left, and that the explosion occurred after a fire broke out when others entered
to loot the factory. Some said a cigarette started the fire. “This accident is a true catastrophe, the first of its kind in Abyan,” said a doctor at the state-run hospital in Jaar, according to Reuters. “There are so many burned bodies. I can’t even describe the situation.” Responders were having difficulty identifying remains amid the chaos and destruction. Counts ranged from about 80 to more than 100. Some were to be buried in mass graves.
Japanese regulator: Contaminated water escaping nuclear plant Japanese
TOKYO (NY Times) — Highly contaminated water is escaping a damaged reactor at the crippled nuclear power plant in Japan and could soon leak into the ocean, the country’s nuclear regulator warned on Monday. The discovery poses a further setback to efforts to contain the nuclear crisis as workers find themselves in increasingly haz-
ardous conditions. In another new finding, Tokyo Electric Power Company, which runs the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power station, said late Monday that it had detected an increase in levels of plutonium in soil samples taken from within the compound a week ago, raising fears of yet another dangerous element that may be escaping the crippled reactors.
It was unclear where the plutonium had come from. The reactors could be a source, and tests of nuclear weapons in the atmosphere, which ended in 1980, left trace amounts of plutonium around the world. The highest levels in the soil, of plutonium 238, were found about 500 yards from the most heavily damaged reactors, the company said.
Rebel advance halted outside Qaddafi’s hometown
BIN JAWWAD, Libya (NY Times) — Rebel forces’ westward charge was repulsed on Monday by a barrage of tank and artillery fire from forces guarding one of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s most crucial bastions of support, while the American military warned on Monday that the insurgents’ rapid advances could quickly be reversed without continued coalition air support. “The regime still vastly overmatches opposition forces militarily,” Gen. Carter F. Ham, the ranking American in the coalition operation, warned in an e-mail message on Monday. “The regime possesses the capability to roll them back very quickly. Coalition air power is the major reason that has not happened.” The sober assessment came as President Obama prepared to address the nation on Monday night about the American role in Libya amid continuing questions about its objectives and duration.

County tax bill to go down after delegation lops off $250k
Commissioners scramble to make budget BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
OSSIPEE -- Lawmakers finally wrapped up the county's $25 million budget on Monday by lopping off $250,000. In response, county commissioners went into an emergency session to find the money. The cuts will need to be finalized by Thursday when budget paperwork is due in Concord. In county government, delegation, a group of 14 state representatives, approve the bottom line budget. The county commissioners manage the money with help of the department heads. Last week, the delegation came close to setting the budget, but got cold feet at the last minute. "They (the commissioners) have an unpleasant procedure to do and they will have to do it by Thursday," said Delegation chair Betsy Patten. The county government includes the sheriff's office, registry of deeds, county attorney, nursing home, and department of corrections. On Monday, the delegation set a bottom line budget figure of $25,687,243, which is $879,306 less than what the county commission originally proposed at the end of last year. The county commission will announce the cuts they made at their regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday morning. The amount the delegation approved is about $3 million more
than was actually spent last year. However, that figure includes about $2 million in interest and bond payments for the new nursing home, which is currently under construction. Before the $250,000 was cut, the amount to be raised by taxes was only going to be $7,000 more than it was last year. That's because the county commissioners were planning to spend $2.5 million from surplus and because the nursing home has been generating a substantial amount of revenue. Because of the $250,000 cut, taxes will be going down slightly. Officials estimated there will be a 2 cent decrease per $1,000 of property value. Commissioner Dorothy Solomon noted the $250,000 cut would only save her less than $10 on her property taxes. By about 3:30 p.m., on Monday, the commisssion was able to make the $250,000 reduction. Commission chairman David Sorensen said he would describe the cuts in detail on Wednesday. The cuts will not result in layoffs. But new hires will be made later than they would otherwise. Money for the livestock program has also been eliminated. The farm supervisor had proposed to bring cows and pigs back to the county farm. "It wasn't easy, but we basically took something from just about everybody with the exception of the county attorney, the registry of deeds, human resources, sewer and water" said Sorensen.

Support Charles for budget committee To the editor: On April 12, there is an election that recent events in Conway make clear is a very important one. I would like to ask readers of The Conway Daily Sun and citizens of Conway to join me in supporting Brian Charles for the municipal budget committee. Brian is a candidate who not only has the business savvy but also compassion and a moral compass needed to make decisions that reflect the strong values of the community. As a former member of the board of finance myself in the town of Madison, Conn., and more importantly as someone who has known him for 47 plus years, I know that my brother Brian has the financial skill set and fiscal discipline needed. More importantly, he possesses the wisdom to guide decision-making that is needed to serve on this board. Having founded and run
successful businesses over his many years in Conway, he has the sound financial background. With his strong commitment to the Mount Washington Valley, and a 12 year old who will soon be attending Kennett High School, Brian importantly recognizes that careful investment in education is one of the most important things Americans must do to ensure a future in which our children and our country can continue to compete in an increasingly global economy. Brian is committed to a balanced approach to the budget for both education and town management, and will stand up for the residents of this valley in an effort to keep taxes low, and priorities straight. Please support Brian Charles for Conway Municipal Budget Committee on April 12. Owen Charles Madison, Conn.
Asking for your vote for police commission To the editor: My name is Rodney King and I am asking for your vote in the upcoming election for Conway Police Commissioner, a position I have held since September of 2010. I was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Robert Porter, who resigned due to illness. I have learned much about police department operations during my brief tenure and I have a strong desire to continue to serve the town of Conway, a place that I have called home for most of my life. I graduated from Kennett High School in 1976 and enlisted in the United States Army. I was stationed in Fort Jackson, S.C. and Fort Bragg, N. C. I returned to Conway in
1980 and began my 31 year career in the cable television field. I am presently the Technical Operations Manager for Time Warner. My wife and I live on Davis Hill Road in Center Conway and we own a small business. I believe that my experience with budget development and oversight, as well as my commitment to fiscal responsibility will serve the Department and the Town of Conway well. I am dedicated to making decisions that are in the best interest of Conway residents. Please consider voting for me for Conway Police Commissioner on April 12. Rodney King Conway

Buy a day or two of nourishing food for someone less fortunate To the editor: I want to thank the folks from the Little Brown Church. Of course for the fact that they give of their time to collect and distribute food to those in need, but most of all I want to thank them for reminding me that in my nearly 72 years of life, I have never really been hungry. There were times when I thought I was hungry but that was only because I got too busy to eat or did not have food on hand due to time or distance, but probably never because I had no food. When I stopped into Shaw’s Market on Saturday to “stock up” and saw the request for contributions I realized all this. And I also realized that I had plenty to eat at home and really did not need anything, but probably more important was that is so easy to take these things for granted. So I decided to do my grocery shopping for someone else. I am not doing this to pat myself on the back
but we are all in this life together and even in this great land of ours there are those in need. I can only hope many of you remember when you sit down to a nice hot meal how well off you really are. Think about what you spent on that meal, and possibly wasted because you were not that hungry, or that case of beer or soda and those bags of snacks and other goodies you enjoy so much. You could buy a day or two of nourishing food for someone less fortunate. Try skipping a meal or two once in a while or maybe just try to eat less and give back to someone who needs it. It may even be good for you and I know it will make you feel better. Try making a promise to yourself that you will put something aside whether it be food or money. I am going to. Chris Brown Conway
THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, March 29, 2011— Page 7
How would a change to the law that would allow students to drop out of school at 16 years of age affect the dropout rate at Kennett High School? There were 32 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “How would a change to the law that would allow students to drop out of school at 16 years of age affect the dropout rate at Kennett High School?” If you change the law back then all the pressure would be on the parents and I think that would create lots problems for the parent-child relationship. If you are bound and determined to change the law back to 16, make the age you can get a driver’s license 18 if you’re not attending school and 16 if you’re a fulltime student. If a student gets a license at 16 and then quits school then revoke his or her driver’s license. I think the pressure that it would put on parents would create serious problems in the home. I think we’re better off leaving it at 18. I think it’s working. I don’t see why in the world you’d want to change it back. This is Ed in Conway. If superintendent Nelson is right, there will be no effect on the dropout rate, as long as a lot of people in the valley keep working real hard. It’s nice to know that Rep. Chandler thinks enough of the 16 and up youth in our state to allow them to drop out of high school and enter the new prosperity workforce with a highly desirable ninth or 10th grade education. Getting rid of the 18-year-old dropout law will help the many parents who are anxious to give their consent to their 16 year olds dropping out. Best of all the new law will balance the homeless population in our state, which has been a little heavy on the over 20 year old side, and as a bonus will increase participation in childbirth as a career for 16 and up females. One sure way to make the Kennett drop out rate equal zero would be by not calling it dropping out but maybe early release or elective failure. Best of luck young folks. I’ll see you in the streets. I think the change in the law that allows students to drop out at 16 years of age will increase the dropout rate at Kennett. Kennett High School has done such a good job of lowering the dropout rate that something needs to be done with this law. I don’t know, Gene Chandler and the rest of them need to look at this a second time. Thanks to Karen Umberger for voting against this. Requiring students to stay in school until age 18 was working. This is a Republican scheme to have kids drop out of school so they’ll have low-paying jobs for the rest of their lives. Next bill, they will do in the child-labor laws. Republicans are going to set the working class back to the Great Depression. This bill is another Chandler bill where he is grandstanding. If it’s actually a great idea to make it illegal for those who don’t want to go to school to drop out, doesn’t it follow that there should be a law enacted that makes it criminal to not learn? This is Ralph in Eaton. According to Nelson, bringing the dropout age back to 16, would have a zero impact because as he states, the dramatic change came as a result of “a lot of people in this valley working very hard!” If that is true, bring the dropout age back down to 16, because it won’t matter. What a political opportunist Nelson is. This guy looks for every opportunity to grab credit, even if it’s not justifiably his! I can’t believe this guy got himself hired as super for the school system.
He is the dumbest man I ever met! I’ve been to numerous school meetings, and he is barely able to form a sentence! My 12 year old is smarter than him. If you bring the dropout age back to 16,the dropout percentage will go right back up because the only reason it is down in the first place is because dropping out is not allowed at 16 years of age. Representative Gene Chandler is right on the money on this one! A kid should be allowed to drop out of school, albeit with parental permission, at the age of 16. We should focus attention on the kids who want to learn and excel. Let “the dropout” get a hard taste of real life and then come back to education on their own; that will be character building and a valuable life experience that will serve “the dropout” well! Don’t force them to stay if they don’t want to be there. Education is everywhere! And as for Nelson, he needs to drop out. Let his contract expire or replace him. He is ineffective, political, divisive, incompetent, fiscally irresponsible, a poor leader, and not all that smart! Let William Marvel run the schools. Then you will start graduating highly educated and prepared students; and for half the money! Better for the kids. Better for our valley. Better for the taxpayer. Better for the world! Let’s see. The dropout age was raised to 18 and the number of dropouts went down. So now people are wondering what will happen if the dropout age is lowered back to 16. Hmmm, that’s a tough one. I will now deeply ponder this challenging question for the next four seconds. Wait, I’ve almost got it. Yes, I’ve figured it out! Lowering the dropout age will cause dropouts to increase! Amazing. This is Kurt in Glen. As an outside observer of valley and New Hampshire politics for 25 years, it is my opinion if Gene Chandler is sponsoring a change to a common sense type of law, scratch a little deeper. That is, think how a change to such a law helps Gene Chandler. First, letting the academic chaff out of high school two years ahead of schedule means you don’t have to have as many costly guidance councilors, tutors, and outreach programs in school budgets, which ultimately mean lower property and business taxes. Second, creating a bigger pool of high school dropouts in the valley ensures the big box businesses, robber barons, and local pols have a never-ending stream of disposable minimum wage earners to do their schlep-work stocking shelves, scrubbing toilets, and bussing the picnic tables at area corn roasts. Does that sound like a conspiracy to you? No, it’s just more of Gene Chandler’s New Hampshire Way of going along and getting along. The recent so-called success in dramatically lowering the dropout rate is due entirely to a change in the law that now makes it very difficult to qualify as a dropout. Lowering the age will make little difference. The fact is, if a child drops out of high school and takes a night class at Granite State, that child is no longer a drop out. Same with going for the GED. That’s utter nonsense and gives a distorted picture. If a student drops out or is expelled from Kennett, that student is a dropout no matter how much sugar coating you want to put on it. Disgusted. Putting the dropout age back to what it was should have no consequential
effect on the local dropout rate. The recent success in dramatically lowering the dropout rate was entirely due to local programs that were created as a matter of local initiative. These programs operate independently of and do not depend whatsoever on the dropout age law. Indeed that law infringes on freedom of choice, whereas our local programs facilitate making good choices without coercion. Repealing the law properly removes the despotic tendencies of government from the equation. Interestingly, our school boards and administrators opposed this law when it was being debated in the legislature a few years ago, but now some of them have foolishly forgotten this and are asking to continue this affront to student and parental freedom of choice. A more important question is whether the costs associated with raising the dropout age were entirely paid by the state, as required by Article 28-a of Part First of our New Hampshire Constitution, and whether our local school authorities saw to it that none of these costs were borne by local taxpayers. There may be an accountability issue in this regard. Budget committees and other watchdogs take notice. If those brats are in school, they won’t have time to run around all day burglarizing homes and breaking into cars. The following responses were posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page: It’s very simple. It will probably go back to being the highest. Duh ... It’s comical that Kennett administration is patting themselves on the back for this achievement. Obviously, if it’s illegal to drop out of school, not many will do it. Probably that same 25 percent that would have dropped out if it wasn’t illegal are walking the halls wasting everyone’s time. Should be made legal again so Burger King and MacDonald’s won’t be short handed. I think it would be a step backwards. For the folks that can only say negative things, please get to know firsthand what’s going on at Kennett — I think the drop out rate would have been lowered substantially without the law, but the law helps — let’s keep the law. I think elections have consequences and people will realize that some that are now in office will do ANYTHING to CUT education spending! Why don’t we just let the kids starve, not have to go to school until age 7 and let them drop out at 16. Then they can move forward to their fantastic career in dumpster diving! I hope they are having fun in Concord! I was surprised to see that states with a dropout age of 16 actually have a lower dropout rate than those with the age set at 18 (http://www.legis. state.ak.us/basis/get_documents. asp?session=26&docid=2530). It may be a coincidence but we raised the drop out age and the drop out rate dropped here, why go and change something that has been working? Why would they look to the future? That is the antithesis of being Conservative. They want the country go back to the way things were in the 90s — the 1890s. Yup, the only reason the dropout rate at Kennett lowered is because of the age increase ... when it returns to 16, they’ll be dropping like flies again. I dropped out at 16 because I could.
Now years later I wish I didn’t have that choice. I say we keep the law. Republicans: Love the fetus/hate the child. I don’t get it, Girls aren’t old enough at 16 to understand the consequences of having an abortion, but they are old enough to understand the life long consequences of dropping out of high school? I just don’t get the logic that is coming out of Concord these days! I’d like to add that some parents may not be well enough informed, or able to advocate effectively for their kids when dealing with school administrators. This could leave these students without the necessary supports to achieve success, and leaving the student AND the parents feeling that dropping out is the only option. Reducing the dropout age is a mistake! Why force a student to stay there until their 18 if they don’t want to learn, and are only going to be a waste of taxpayers money and a distraction to the other students who actually do want to learn. I say turn it back to the way it was for years. All we heard a week ago was how great the administration was doing and the great programs they implemented to achieve these much improved drop out numbers. Now we are crediting this drop out improvement solely to the increased age requirement. So which is it? If the programs really work it shouldn’t matter what the drop out age is. If they don’t work then why are we paying for them! I think drop out rate would go up slowly if the economy doesn’t go up. If more jobs become available it might go up faster. The school brags and takes credit for what a wonderful job they’ve done to reduce the dropout rate when all along its been the law that was responsible. Now most people know the truth ... are you still willing to throw them your money for a job well done? I agree that Republicans love the fetus and hate the child ... it’s really sick. Who here could have made that important of a life decision at 16? Really, those of you who are for lowering the age really should examine your values. What are you doing, just trying to make more Republicans, ie. low information voters? I hear what you’re saying. These programs have been implemented because the drop out rate was an embarrassment. Then shortly thereafter, the dropout age was raised to 18, so it (in our case) reinforces these programs. There has to be a middle ground that serves the children that as a society we should be mentoring, and is also fiscally responsible. This school has security cameras, a full time police officer, a dean, a principal, a vice principal, student advocate, director of career and technical center, their assistants, two hall monitors (paid positions) for a school with a student body of roughly 1,000 students. This is not a huge inner city school! Instead of cutting beneficial programs for the kids, IMO we should thin out our top-heavy administration, and put that police officer in a patrol car instead of hiring more police! We don’t need the school slogan to go back to “Kennett read, Kennett write.” The bottom line is at 16, a person is still a child. If they’re not mature enough to buy cigarettes, or beer why would they be ENCOURAGED to make this decision?

members and the administrators on where to cut. The board was accused of micromanaging a few times. Teachers, aides, maintenance workers, special education books, supplies and even the elimination of a team of teachers (from four to three teams) at Kennett Middle School were included on the possible cuts. The cuts are a precautionary measure in case the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration rules only 10 percent could be restored to the budget from the deliberative session, not the full 11 percent voters added at the school meeting this month. With a $1.3 million cut, superintendent Carl Nelson said 20-22 district employees will receive reduction in force pink slips by April 15, as required under contract if there is a possibility they will not be retained. Under the school policy, the newest members of staff and teachers would be the first ones to be let go. Should a teaching position be cut, if the teacher who holds that spot has seniority over another teacher they could bump the newer one out of a job. Superintendent Nelson explained the board needs to make contingency plans in case the DRA rules to cut the budget. "The board has to make provisions within the budget in the event that as the governor has stated that the state will no longer continue to contribute 35 percent to the state retirement fund. In Conway's case that equates to $428,000 (for this upcoming year). I don't think it will happen, but just as we did in Bartlett last week, we have to make provisions to send funding to the retirement system. "The other piece is if the DRA imposes the 10 percent rule, which I believe it will, and start eating up warrant articles until it gets to the budget, totaling $829,000," he continued. "The board does have some possible challenge options along the way. As Attorney (John) Teague has raised the issue of did the budget committee do its work properly." The proposed school budget is $33.1 million — $3.6 million more than what the budget committee had recommended. The default budget, normally a fallback option that limits spending, is $190,473 more than the proposed budget this year. Nelson said the DRA could rule that the default budget may be subject to a 10 percent cut, too. "That's the big unknown," he said. "It's never happened before in the state."
"The goal is to make sure students don't lose out on programs they value," Janine McLauchlan, board chairman, said as she opened the meeting explaining possible scenarios if the DRA rules cuts must be made. "If (the DRA mandates a cut) we would most likely challenge their ruling," she continued. "We have not given up our right to legal action against the budget committee because it wasn't necessary at this time." McLauchlan said the board could challenge the DRA if it rules against it and may end up going to the New Hampshire Supreme Court to settle the matter. To date, through February, the board had spent between $6,000$7,000 in legal fees. A challenge to the DRA ruling could be another $12,000 to $20,000 while if the board pursued the matter to the supreme court it would possibly be an additional $10,000. "It could cost us between $37,000 to $40,000 to challenge and hopefully prevail," McLauchlan said. "We fully support the budget we have put forward." The school board differed on a few of the administrators proposed cuts and ultimately returned $209,000 to the list through $42,834 in music for the elementary schools; $57,276 for reading at all levels; $60,000 in a revolving maintenance fund for the elementary schools; $47,473 for a maintenance person; and $1,500 for transportation for the junior ski program. Board member Rick Breton proposed the bulk of the additions (elementary music; reading; the maintenance employee and revolving maintenance which were all approved while attempts to add back a hall monitor for $38,708 and a custodian for #2,443 both fell a vote shy of support). He also outlined possible areas to cut $310,710, but none were taken. They included $120,900 for the dean of students and the assistant position; $47,544 for a 15 percent reduction in co-curricular; $14,406 for a 15 percent reduction in co-curricular at the middle school; $83,529 by reducing the number of librarians for the three middle schools from three to 1.5.; and $44,331 in an elementary guidance counselor. "I want to thank all of the administrators for coming forward with all the cuts, you've done a great job," Breton said. "Unfortunately, I don't agree with all of them. I couldn't believe that reading was actually on here. The same with the elementary music. … My biggest goal is to see next page

limit any loss of curriculum." Fellow board member Randy Davison was upset elementary music had been a target and pointed to the upcoming Louis Fuchs concert and the success of music in this community. "I was appalled with the administration in this district for wanting to cut instructional music," he said. "I can't imagine the amount of people who have put forward efforts for our programs to thrive. You're cutting the entire program (at the middle school and the high school) off at the knees. This board specifically said not to do this to a program that has been sustaining itself. I'm not arguing for this because my wife is the band director (at the high school), the people want this program. "If I were looking at cuts I would have looked at books," Davison continued. "We have $36,000 for library books. I would have went a year without books. I'd have looked at materials rather than personnel and programs." Dick Klement, also of the board, wondered why maintenance items were being touched, something that the board deemed untouchable when it had the administrators go through a $1.5 and $1 million cut exercises last fall. "How are we going to install the air handler, that's going to save us $100,000, with one less person," Klement asked. "You put maintenance on the fire and it was supposed to be off the table." Board member Syndi White couldn't believe that the three elementary school principals removed transportation for the junior ski program from their budgets. It was $1,500 in total. "I think it's a real poor choice to do," she said. White also thought the $298,000 cut in special education would have an impact on the district. The cut comes while co-curricular activities (sports and band, dance and drama) went unscathed. "Co-curricular was the one thing not touched at all," White said. "I think it's time for us to get our priorities straight. … We need to strengthen our academics." White made a motion to cut cocurricular by 50 percent or over $200,000. "We'd make it a pay to play and then have a sliding scale for this who need scholarships," she said. Davison also questioned closing the high school library two afternoons a week. "We have some tough decisions to make here," he said. "I would cut $22,090 for library books, just for one year. It's better than cutting a program. I firmly believe, and you'll here whatever I'm drinking, that the middle school is overstaffed. We've gone from 403-290 students over the last few years. I'm supporting the cut of a team. I just wonder since we're cutting a team should we cut a team leader? Klement picked up on the team leader theme, but carried it to the high school where he felt freshman team leaders could be cut.
"If we cut the freshman team leaders that would mean they should be able to teach one more course a day then we could cut a teacher," he said. Klement later learned that freshmen team leaders teach just two courses a day while spending other time meeting with parents and working to lower the freshman failure rate. It was later revealed that all of the freshman teachers only have two classes per day and then run a study hall. McLauchlan asked middle school principal Kevin Richard and high school principal Neal Moylan their rationale for not making cuts to the co-curricular in their buildings. They explained they had already made cuts in the first round of cuts directed by the board in January. "I was given a task to reduce my budget by X-amount and the only way to there was to reduce a team, something near and dear to my heart," Richard said. "My list is pretty consistent. If we had to do the $3.6 million cut, you did see a reduction in my budget. If I have to continue to cut then absolutely you'll see (a reduction in co-curricular)." "At the high school I was asked to cut my budget by $245,000 and I think I came within $55. This, after I'd already cut $80,000 (in the January mandate)," Moylan said. Moylan wondered why the board was questioning the administrative cuts. "We know our buildings better than anyone else," he said. "We know the kids; we know the staff and we know what builds morale and pride. I see our goal as to provide every single student the chance to chase their dreams. … Right now school spirit is unlike any I have ever seen here. No longer are their any subsets within this school. We don't have the goths or the rednecks. We just had our (Winter Carnival) formal dance and they didn't come as cliques they all came as Kennett students. "Co-curricular for kids is a connection to school," Moylan continued. "The student task force highlighted this five years ago. As teachers we are always looking for the hook (to bring a student in). For many that hook is co-curricular. If we cut the co-curricular it would affect morale and academic achievement." Moylan spoke about the need to maintain the dean of students. "It's an essential part to stopping bullying," he said. "We have 870 students and 73 at night (enrolled in the Eagle Academy), this building runs 13 hours a day. Let's get concerned about a child who is worried if they have to look over their shoulder or worry about getting beaten up. … I like a shinning floor ($10,000 was removed from floor waxing) but more importantly I like a shinning mind. "We don't like making these cuts anymore than you do," Moylan continued. "What you're saying in not trusting us, it's a vote of no confidence. We've analyzed the data and think we've come up with the best solution possible. Have faith in cuts these administrators have proposed. … We're a good school â€” we're perched on the precipice of becoming a very good or a great school."

HIKER from page one
The National Guard sent a Blackhawk helicopter, which spotted Horgan near treeline to the south of the summit just before 10 a.m. They directed rescuers on the ground to her location. When they first walked up, Comeau said, “she had a big smile on her face, happy to see us.” “We all expected a much worse scenario than what we found,” Larson said. Comeau, Larson and a third rescuer, Jim Surette, gave her food and hot water, and she was able to hike down on her own. She got back to Route 302 around 12:30 p.m. But the state is still considering whether she will have to pay for the rescue, which cost thousands of dollars. “Ultimately it’s the attorney general’s office that decides,” said Lt. Doug Gralenski, of New Hampshire Fish and Game. Fish and Game fills out a report and makes a recommendation, he said, but it comes down to whether she was negligent or not. “That’s being investigated as we speak,” he said. The answer hinges on two things, Gralenski said: her equipment choices, and her decision-making and judgement. She was well equiped, but she went up high during harsh weather. “Was that a prudent decision?” he said. “That would be the area we’d be looking at.” Fish and Game will make a report about the incident and submit it to the attorney general’s office to make the decision. The rescuers, however, called Horgan a success story. “Experienced, knowledgeable, fit prepared,” Larson said. “She had it all.” Horgan told Larson she’d been hiking for 14 years. “Everybody is guilty of getting lost,” Larson said. “All three of the people who found her had been lost in that exact same spot.” “I don’t think it’s at all a fine-able incident,” Wilcox said. MRS has dealt with lots of similar incidents that usually end far worse. “This woman was at least equipped.”
her around 10 a.m. Sunday. The wind was blowing more than 70 mph and the temperature was near zero that night. “It was pretty brutal. We were certainly anticipating some injuries,” said Alain Comeau, one of the three MRS rescuers who found Horgan Sunday morning. “It was a surprise to find her in good health. She was well equipped, she did everything right.” Horgan spent the night marching in place just below treeline. "You could see this track where she was stomping all night long," said Steve Larson, another of the MRS members who found Horgan. “She was in much better shape than I would have been had I gone through what she went through.” Horgan’s plan, according to rescuers, was to go out for a day hike of Mount Jackson, a 4,052 foot peak south of Mount Washington on the Appalachian Trail. She climbed up the mountain from the west on a well-packed trail wearing double plastic boots and snowshoes. She had multiple layers of winter clothing but no overnight gear. She reached Mount Jackson’s summit in the afternoon, where she intended to turn around and return the way she came up before dark. Instead, she unwittingly wound up walking south along the Appalachian Trail, which was not packed, until she hit the trees. She searched in vain for the packed trail through the trees she’d come up on. Around 3:30 p.m. she called a friend using her cell phone. New Hampshire Fish and Game was notified at 3:40 p.m. Fish and Game sent officers to search for her after the sun set, when winds were between 70 and 90 mph and visibility was near zero. Temperatures were in the single digits. The searchers were unable to find her. The next morning MRS, which specializes in searches in winter alpine environments, responded, as did the New Hampshire National Guard, the Appalachian Mountain Club and Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue.

Fortin has long history with fire ARSON from page one
record for fire-related offenses. Fortin is being held in Carroll County Jail on $50,000 cash bail and was arraigned in Northern Carroll County District Court Monday and charged with arson. He was also charged with falsifying physical evidence and reckless conduct, both of which are felony charges. According to an affidavit filed with Northern Carroll County District Court Judge Pamela D. Albee Monday, Mullen said Sgt. Paul Zipper, of the Massachusetts State Police Fire Marshal's Office, told him that he had arrested Fortin approximately six times since 1992 for arson related offenses. “Fortin stated to him he has been setting fires since the age of 6. Fortin was sentenced to community service as a result of one charge. He set a fire at the facility (a church rectory) where he was doing his community service. He was also sentenced to counseling” wrote Mullen, “and set fire in the bathroom of that facility. Fortin set another fire in the stairway of a tenant building at 3 a.m.” Fortin is a case study for Massachusetts State Police Arson Trainings, Mullen said. “Sgt. Zipper stated that he considers Fortin to be one of the most dangerous individuals he has encountered in his professional capacity,” wrote Mullen in the affidavit, adding that Fortin “has been found competent to stand trial in the Massachusetts judicial system.” A call placed to Zipper's office was not returned as of Monday afternoon. According to the affidavit, Fortin has no ties to the community. He is now homeless and without a job. Mullen said that Sgt. Ted Colby of the Madison Police Department had contacted Fortin's probation officer and told him of the latest offense. “He is considered a danger to himself and to the community,” Mullen said. Mullen said under questioning at Madison police headquarters Friday, Fortin initially denied setting the fire, but after an hour admitted that he had ignited an empty Coke case with a lighter and
threw the burning carton on the floor in the basement of the mobile home Friday morning. “He had hoped that when he threw it near other cans of soda they would explode and put the fire out. After he started the fire he went up stairs,” wrote Mullen in the affidavit. “When he heard the smoke detectors and saw a lot of smoke he realized the fire was out of control and called 911. He admitted to using a Patriots lighter and giving it to his nephew ... at the scene.” The lighter was recovered by investigators from Fortin's nephew. According to the falsifying evidence charge, police in their complaint to the court said that Fortin, “believing that the Madison Police department was investigating an arson at 137 Mooney Hill Road, he purposely gave the lighter he used to start the fire to another person, so as to impair the lighter's availability in the investigation.” The mobile home suffered extensive smoke damage. Mullen said the home is believed to be owned by Sean O'Brien of Rochester. Damage to the home was estimated to be more than $1000. The mobile home has an assessed value of $24,200. Fortin was one of four occupants of the mobile home. Mullen said that Fortin was the only person home at the time of the fire in the mobile home. Madison Fire Chief Rick Judkins said the fire appeared to have started at 11 a.m. in the basement bathroom of the rented mobile home. The call came in at 11:30 a.m. Friday. First on the scene was Conway Fire and Rescue. Also responding were fire departments from Madison, Conway, West Ossipee, Tamworth and Freedom. “The fire was brought under control within minutes,” said Judkins. After arriving at the scene, Mullen said he, Sgt. Colby and Judkins determined that the fire was of suspicious origin. They called the state fire marshal's office to assist them in the investigation. Leading the investigation for the state fire marshal's office is Tom Riley of Concord.

Trio helped restore Kennett pride BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — Melissa Frase, Sam Meader and Allie Wagner will leave some pretty big basketball shoes to fill years to come at Kennett High School. The trio helped return the Eagles to the basketball map. Three consecutive appearances in the post-season including winning the state championships last year as well as a Final Four appearance this year are quite a resume. The three graduating seniors, this year’s team captains, helped KHS to nearly 60 wins over the past three years. “These three have been great for our program,” Peter Ames, Eagles’ head coach, 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 Three Amigos certainly left their mark statistically this season. Wagner led the Eagles in scoring with 570 points followed by Frase, 209 (in just 11 games); and Meader, 126. Frase led the team in assists with 88 while Wagner had 76 and Meader, 62. Meader was third on the team in rebounds with 100; Frase added 60; and Wagner, 23. Wagner and Frase became just the school’s second and third McDonald’s All America nominees while both finish their careers in the prestigious 1,000
“These three have been great for our program.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.” Point Club at Kennett High. Wagner’s 570 points could be a single-season record as she finishes with exactly 1,600 career points. Frase, who reached the 1,000 point plateau in final home game, ended up with 1,010 total points. For the second year in a row Wagner received Division II All State honors and the 24.7 points per game scorer has been selected to The Union Leader’s All Star team in which just five players from the entire Granite State are chosen. The team will officially be unveiled tomorrow. Frase, who was also First Team All State as a junior, earned Second Team laurels this winter despite missing half the season while rehabbing from a knee injury. Wagner has accepted a full basketball scholarship to Division II Merrimack College and she may not be the lone Eagle. Frase has been invited down for a two-day visit this week. Both Frase and Wagner were selected by the New Hampshire Basketball Coaches Organization to see THE TRIO page 15
In the Press Box...
Allie was robbed
I was never a big Michael Jordan fan growing up. There was just something about him I didn’t like. Maybe it was because Magic Johnson was my guy. He and Larry Bird saved basketball in my book while Jordan sold a lot of shoes for Nike. That’s way to harsh for his Airness. Jordan was a great player and as a sports writer of course I’d have voted for him to be inducted into the basketball hall of fame. Like him or not it’s the right thing to do. I’m a firm believer in doing the right thing and I’m not sure it was done concerning the voting process for the New Hampshire Division II Girls Basketball Player of the Year. Danielle Walczak, of Oyster River, won the award for the second year in a row, edging Kennett’s Allie Wagner by three votes. Let’s get this right into the open, this is in no way an attack on Danielle, who by all accounts is an even better person than she is a basketball player. In fact, she and Allie are friends and have played on the same team before. Danielle even came to the semifinals this year wearing a Kennett jersey. This is an argument for co-players of the year at the very least. The process as I understand it for voting goes like this: coaches are given the opportunity to vote for first team, second team and honorable mention. The first vote for the first team all-state is that coaches see PRESS BOX page 16

play in their Granite State All Star games pitting seniors from all four divisions in games. Meader was chosen the first alternate for the Division II squad. Unfortunately, neither she nor Wagner were able to attend the game while Frase played and netted five points in the loss to the Division I squad. Meader and KHS junior Casey Blakely were selected to the NHBCO’s Division II Academic Honor Roll. Meader has been accepted at UConn, University of New Hampshire, University of New England and is waiting to hear back from Boston University before making her college decision. “The three of them have been pretty good,” Ames said. “They’re special kids I think. They certainly changed the attitude about basketball here. We had that (attitude) when I first started with Brit’s (Ames-Banda) group and Lindsey Mayock, but then we sort of settled, but these seniors got it back. “I think it started with Allie’s freshman year,” he continued. “We went 6-12 but it was a big step for the program because we were very competitive for most of that first year. Melissa and Sam came along in their sophomore years and things really started to take off. Aside from scoring, the attitude and approach they brought to the program really started to turn things around.” Ames appreciates the trio’s basketball skills, but they all brought such a strong work ethic to every minute and always put the team first. “They were more than just talent,” he said. “They had a mindset of kids working hard to get better and they demonstrated it and others bought into it. It was an attitude, a positive attitude. Melissa and Allie didn’t rest on just being good. They played more than anyone else and just kept working to approve their skills.” Meader brought so much to the program, not only on but off the court, too, according to Ames. “Sam does everything,” he said. “She’s not a scorer but she could score. There were games where we needed her to take the big shots and she did. She never looked for glory, it was all about the team. She’s just one of those great players to have behind the scenes. Sam never complained about what-
ever role you put her in. She’s not real big, but she could play all five positions if need be. She’s played power forward for us and even stepped in to run the point when Allie fouled out at Kingswood. “She does all the things you need someone to do without complaining,” Ames continued. “You’re program is not going to be successful if you don’t have a Sam Meader on it. She will be a very difficult person to replace. Allie and Melissa are very different from a point production standpoint to replace. Of course you need the scorers, but you also need that player who sacrifices their own personal glory for the team. In all the time I’ve coached her I don’t think I ever heard Sam complain once. Whatever we needed her to do she did.”
Ames said as good as his captains were on the court, they’re even better people off it. “They’re all great kids,” he said. “They’re all very different kids but in their own unique ways are just really nice. You don’t have to be concerned about them doing foolish things off the court. “Melissa is a pretty fierce competitor, but quiet,” Ames continued. “Allie is little more comfortable in the role of sort of being our marque player. Melissa scores a lot and handles the ball so well, but I think Allie is more of a true scorer. Melissa is much more natural at other parts of the game where Allie can light it up for 30 any time. They complete each other, it’s certainly been fun to watch and coach all three of them.”

MWV Junior Nordic skiers celebrate at the Bill Koch Festival BY EMILY BENSON After traveling along snowy roads through wintry mountain passes to Middlebury, Vt., 15 junior cross country skiers and their families celebrated the fun and beauty of winter at the TD Bank New England Nordic Ski Association’s Bill Koch Festival Feb.26-27. Over 500 skiers up to 14 years of age from across New England and New York arrived for a weekend of ski racing, ski touring, ski jumping, face-painting and fun and games at the Rikert Ski Touring Center on the Breadloaf Campus of Middlebury College. Well-known New England poet Robert Frost’s presence in the valley was felt as children enjoyed the groomed trails while reciting Frost’s famous poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”. The Great Glen Bill Koch Club was represented by 13 children under the leadership of Coach Sue Wemyss. Members included Malcolm, Nina, Helen and Willem Badger, Isabelle, Esmae and Stash Doucette, Elizabeth Duffy, Logan and Eden Levitt, Zoe McKinney and Daniel and Maeve Weeder. They were joined by Mt. Washington Nordic Club skiers Donovan Spaulding and PJ Benson. Festival organizers encouraged participants to dress as their favorite New England woodland creatures for a parade to start off the weekend’s festivities. Foxes, bears, beavers, badgers and even fish were seen marching past the stadium area, many faces adorned with colorful painted whiskers and noses! Immediately following the parade the racing action kicked off with skate relay races for all ages. Willem Badger skated out of the start in the first and second grade mixed relays with teammate Mathias Boudreau-Golfman from southern New Hampshire, skiing to an impressive 11th place finish. Next on the course were the third and fourth grade girls, with Maeve Weeder, Eden Levitt and Helen Badger skating the 1.2K course to 11th.

PRESS BOX from page 16
High the opportunity to have a player of the year. That’s like leaving Jordan off a hall of fame ballot, you don’t do it if you have any integrity. Allie averaged 24.7 points per game this winter, arguably among the top point producers in the Granite State, female and male alike. I wrote the following two weeks ago to the New Hampshire Basketball Coaches Organization and am still waiting for a reply. “President Soucy and fellow members of the New Hampshire Basketball Coaches Organization, I am writing to inquire about the voting process for the Division II Player of the Year. It has been brought to my attention that one of the coaches completely omitted Allie Wagner off his/her ballot. Given that omission, this talented young lady missed out on the honor. It’s hard to believe she wouldn’t have been considered among the top 10 players in the state let alone the division. Having been selected to First Team All State last year as a junior one would think that her name, and her game, would be considered memorable. Is it possible to correct this injustice by having coplayers of the year? Also, could I get the name of the coach who left her off the ballot so I can contact them for their rationale. Thank you for your time and help in this matter.” Not every coach saw Allie play, just as not every coach probably saw Danielle play, but she appeared on every ballot. Given there are over 20 teams in Division II it’s impossible to play everyone once let alone twice. All Kennett fans can go on are the two meetings this winter between the Bobcats and Eagles. Both contests were played in Conway. In the first meeting, Kennett defeated Oyster River 71-46. In that game, Danielle had 13 points while Allie tossed in 28. In the next encounter, two weeks later in the quarterfinals of the playoffs, in Conway, Kennett again won, 66-41. Danielle netted eight points before breaking her leg in the third quarter. Allie scored a career-high 37 points including a school-record nine three-pointers in the game. Twice this season Allie outscored teams in games. In a KHS victory over Manchester West, West was held to 24 points while Allie scored 32. In a triumph over Bishop Brady, the Green Giants netted 24 points while Allie tickled the twine for 28. Allie, who was the outstanding player of last year’s playoffs and named to first team all state as a junior, was constantly double-teamed this winter, but still

team’s couldn’t stop her. In Kennett’s season-ending game to Lebanon, in which Allie was absolutely hammered throughout, she led all scorers with 28 points including a perfect 10-10 from the line. Surely, every Division II coach followed the playoffs. Allie, the second all-time leading scorer for Kennett (behind only Deb Russell-Parsons) was the MVP of the Lee Holiday Bash Tournament in Farmington over the Christmas break. She broke the four-game tournament scoring record in three games. How could any coach in Division II not know who she was! I get the impression that Kennett is the Rodney Dangerfield of Division II basketball. Even after winning the state championship last winter — by the way, Allie pumped in the second most points ever scored over four tournament games — the Eagles get no respect. Maybe it’s because Kennett is the most northern school in Division II. Maybe it’s because our school doesn’t do enough to tout our players, like sending out press releases to the papers down south or getting Eagle plugs on WMUR. We certainly have some “Hometown Heros” in this neck of the woods. Maybe it was an accident that Allie Wagner was left off a coaches ballot, but it was an error that could/should have been corrected. Allie and Kennett High certainly deserved a better fate.

Heather Pierson performs at Little White Church April 2 What beautiful weather we are having, even if a bit cold. The snow is melting, my daffodils are up right next to the house, and I’m waiting for the buds to bloom on the trees. C’mon spring! Again this year, the Eaton Conservation Commission has funds available to pay part of the cost for Eaton children between the ages of 4 and 16 to attend Tin Mountain Conservation Center summer camps. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, please contact Judy Fowler at 447-2828 until May 7. Both Tin Mountain camp brochures are available at the Eaton Village Store over by the newspapers. Vessel Recordings artist Heather Pierson will present a very special and intimate concert at The Little White Church in Eaton on Saturday, April 2, at 7 p.m. Heather’s latest release, “Make It Mine,” was celebrated last fall with a sell-out release show at Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownfield. “Make It Mine” is currently enjoying regular rotation on several New England college, commercial and internet radio stations. Both solo and with an ensemble, Heather is currently performing throughout the Northeast and beyond in support of the CD, including as an exhibitor and presenter at this year’s Great
Lakes Regional Music Therapy Conference in Lake Geneva, Wis. later this month. At the April 2 concert, Heather will be joined on stage by some very special guest musicians. They will present songs from the CD, as well as interpretations of a few choice cover songs. She will also be performing new songs not yet heard by her fans. Tickets to this very special concert are only $15 and are available at the Eaton Village Store, White Birch Books & North Conway Music Shop in North Conway, or by calling 733-6350. If you are planning to have dinner at the Inn at Crystal Lake before this concert, call and make reservations early at 447-2120. Many people in town receive the New Hampshire magazine which is a great read. The only problem I have with it is that when they do their Best of NH issue, most of the places are in Manchester, Concord, and Nashua. Right now you can vote for their Best of NH in many categories. Alice Spears’ It’s My Girlfriend’s is in the pool of consignment shops to be voted. Go to www.bestofnh.com and go to shops and find the section on consignment shops. She would love the support for all that love to shop, and men can vote, too. Many thanks in advance. So…now is the time to
vote for all the area shops, restaurants, bookstores (like our White Birch Books), and get out more information for this area. I voted yesterday and I’m going to vote again. According to Jen Kovach, our Eaton Booger Meister Race Team took home some prizes: Jackie S. Gardner, second place; Andrew Mahoney, third place; Trevor Tasker, second place. Way to go, Boogers! Also, congratulations to Alex Norden for being the “fastest female” on the course of the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup race at Attitash recently. Nice picture on the front page of The Conway Daily Sun, Alex. On Tuesday, April 5, Marnie Cobbs will be briefly doing poetry reading with Louise Taylor, at the Cook Library in Tamworth with others at 7 p.m. including open mic.

Also happening most recently at the store was another men’s nights with card games, good food and chair massages.

By Holiday Mathis are curious about what is going on in the lives of others, but you are not nosy. You respect the boundaries of privacy. As you show interest in others without the crossing the line, you’ll teach through your example. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You realize that there is no way to accomplish the day’s work without a fair dose of teamwork. That’s why you will downplay the “I” and give your emphasis to the “we.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will put yourself in the other person’s shoes. It’s not hard to do this, but it takes a special person to make the effort -- a person who is willing to let go of his or her own egoistic needs. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s something you are trying to do despite the fact that, given your current situation, it seems highly improbable that you will succeed at the task. Give everything you have, and you will turn the odds in your favor. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may feel like you are being picked on. Just keep in mind that sometimes the very thing you think of as rejection or bad luck is actually the luckiest thing that could happen to you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 29). Family celebrates you. New friends enter your world over the next 10 weeks and will continue to be a source of variety and spice. Thrilling challenges arise in May. You will study a new culture or profession in April. June brings your favorite kind of distraction. Invest in July for a return that will come in three years. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 11, 20, 4, 31 and 18.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your leisure moments will be magical. You will get swept up into a brilliant piece of entertainment. The pettiness and worries of daily life will disappear as you thoroughly enjoy yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is nothing wrong with keeping score. If you didn’t, there would be no game. However, you realize that there are times (like today) when it is better to throw out the scorecard and start fresh. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Like the god your guiding planet Mercury was named for, you will make your next moves with speedy assurance, defying laws of gravity as though there were wings on your shoes. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a competition on the horizon. You will give your best and most focused attention to preparing for this event. As you apply all you know, you will be a magnet for the new information you need to succeed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You set the kind of goals that will challenge you but won’t be so difficult that you are likely to be overwhelmed by the enormity and seeming impossibility of the task. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You put people first and consider the feelings of others at every turn. When it’s your turn to get in the game, though, you play to win. The thrill of victory will be one of the things you enjoy most about today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You thought you knew your own priorities, but you will be surprised by your reaction to the day’s events. This indicates that something or someone is more important to you than you previously thought. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, March 29, 2011— Page 23
Today is Tuesday, March 29, the 88th day of 2011. There are 277 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 29, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln ordered plans for a relief expedition to sail to South Carolina’s Fort Sumter, which was still in the hands of Union forces despite repeated demands by the Confederacy that it be turned over. On this date: In 1638, Swedish colonists settled in present-day Delaware. In 1790, the tenth president of the United States, John Tyler, was born in Charles City County, Va. In 1867, Britain’s Parliament passed the British North America Act to create the Dominion of Canada. In 1882, the Knights of Columbus was chartered in Connecticut. In 1943, World War II rationing of meat, fats and cheese began. In 1951, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage. (They were executed in June 1953.) The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “The King and I” opened on Broadway. In 1961, the 23rd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, allowing citizens in the District of Columbia to vote in presidential elections, was ratified. In 1971, Army Lt. William L. Calley Jr. was convicted of murdering 22 Vietnamese civilians in the My Lai (mee ly) massacre. (Calley ended up serving three years under house arrest.) In 1973, the last United States combat troops left South Vietnam, ending America’s direct military involvement in the Vietnam War. One year ago: Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up in twin attacks on Moscow subway stations jam-packed with rush-hour passengers, killing at least 40 people and wounding more than 100. Today’s Birthdays: Political commentator John McLaughlin is 84. Author Judith Guest is 75. Former British Prime Minister Sir John Major is 68. Comedian Eric Idle is 68. Composer Vangelis is 68. Basketball Hall of Famer Walt Frazier is 66. Singer Bobby Kimball (Toto) is 64. Actor Brendan Gleeson is 56. Actor Christopher Lawford is 56. Pro and College Football Hall of Famer Earl Campbell is 56. International Gymnastics Hall of Famer Kurt Thomas is 55. Actor Christopher Lambert is 54. Rock singer Perry Farrell (Porno for Pyros; Jane’s Addiction) is 52. Comedian-actress Amy Sedaris is 50. Model Elle Macpherson is 48. Rock singermusician John Popper (Blues Traveler) is 44. Actress Lucy Lawless is 43. Country singer Regina Leigh (Regina Regina) is 43. Country singer Brady Seals is 42. Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is 40. Tennis player Jennifer Capriati is 35.

OLDER WORKER’S ILL BEHAVIOR COULD HAVE MULTIPLE CAUSES
DEAR ABBY: My heart ached after reading the letter from “Stumped in California” (Feb. 4), who wondered what could be done about an older co-worker, “Anita,” who she said was showing “signs of dementia.” I would caution her about making judgments based on stereotypes of older workers and their health problems. Like Anita, I am in my late 60s. I am also underwater in my mortgage, which means I have no nest egg. Because my husband is unemployed, my savings have been depleted. My short-term memory is poor, and the meds I am on to help me function do not improve my memory. Anita may not have dementia. She may be suffering from unbearable worry and stress. I suggest putting out a hand in friendship to Anita instead of trying to diagnose her. -- FEELING IT TOO IN RICHMOND, VA. DEAR FEELING IT: Many of my readers felt this one, and wrote to offer compassion to Anita as well as possible explanations for her slip in job performance. Read on: DEAR ABBY: Anyone experiencing marked and/or prolonged changes in mood, function and behavior should undergo thorough medical and/or psychological/psychiatric evaluation. Many treatable conditions can affect memory and concentration. The constant tearfulness observed by “Stumped” is a common symptom of depression. If Anita’s office has an Employee Assistance Plan, a supervisor or HR will know the procedure for referring her to an EAP clinician who can evaluate her and make recommendations for treatment, work-related considerations and follow-up. -- LICENSED CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST, UPSTATE NEW YORK
DEAR ABBY: I am a state-licensed hearing instrument specialist. The commonalities between the symptoms of hearing loss and dementia are many. A person with hearing loss has a tendency to withdraw -- she’s more APART FROM than a PART OF. Also, if she’s having trouble remembering things she’s done before, she may not have heard the request. (How can you remember something if you have never heard it?) I encourage “Stumped” to talk to Anita about having her hearing tested. A hearing aid may be what she needs to help her perform better on the job. -- KNOWS FROM EXPERIENCE DEAR ABBY: As a manager in the federal government, I had an employee who worked hard the majority of her life and did a great job. Suddenly, her performance began suffering. It didn’t make sense to me how she could be so valuable at one point in her career, and then couldn’t do the simplest task without goofing it up. I sent her to a doctor for an examination, and we discovered that this “older woman” was having mini-strokes all day long! I was relieved to be able to retire her on disability, rather than destroying her life’s hard work by firing her. And she was able to get help for a medical condition she wasn’t aware of. -- RUTH IN FREDERICK, MD. DEAR ABBY: Technology is moving so quickly that people of all ages need to update their skill level constantly. The economy is hitting our seniors hard. Anita may be working to pay for medications. To “Stumped” I say: Get off your high horse and stop watching Anita “deteriorate.” Help her! It might be you someday. -- P.J. IN MIAMISBURG, OHIO
