Ferrell goes Spanish LOS ANGELES (NY Times) — Last summer Will Ferrell was brushing up on his Spanish (three years high school, two semesters college) for his starring role in “Casa de Mi Padre,” a movie presented almost entirely en Español with English subtitles. During a phone call with his collaborators before filming started, Ferrell recalled: “They asked, ‘How’s your Spanish coming?’ I’m like: ‘Not good. I haven’t even started.’ ” Nevertheless, with a little focus and some last-minute tutoring, Ferrell — the only nonnative speaker in an otherwise Spanish-speaking principal cast — was able to fulfill his duties to “Casa de Mi Padre,” an unusual comedy even by his standards. The movie, which will be released on March 16, finds him far afield from crowd-pleasing hits like “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” Shot in 24 days on a budget of about $6 million, “Casa de Mi Padre” tells the story of Armando Alvarez (Ferrell), the ne’er-do-well son of a Mexican rancher whose manhood is tested when he falls in love with the fiancée (Genesis Rodriguez) of his flashier brother, Raul (Diego Luna), and is drawn into a violent conflict with a drug baron (Gael García Bernal). “For some reason,” Ferrell said, “it just hit me that it’d be really funny not to have the joke be that I speak bad Spanish, but that I actually speak as proficient Spanish as I can muster, and everything is played really straight.”

Friends applaud, the comedy is over. —Ludwig van Beethoven

Minnesota school district reaches agreement gay bullying prevention

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

MINNESOTA (NY Times) — After years of accusations that it had failed to stop antigay bullying and a spate of student suicides, Minnesota’s largest school district has agreed to sweeping changes designed to prevent harassment based on sexual orientation in a plan that federal officials call a national model. The sprawling Anoka-Hennepin district, just north of Minneapolis, approved a legal agreement on Monday night with the federal government, which has been investigating the district for civil rights violations, and with six students who had sued the district on charges that they

had suffered unchecked harassment. Under the agreement, which must be signed by a federal judge, the Departments of Justice and Education will monitor the district for five years. The Minnesota district and its antibullying procedures became entwined in a nationwide debate over how homosexuality and gender diversity should be discussed in schools. Conservative Christian groups, while condemning bullying, argue that singling out sexual orientation for protections or teaching tolerance of same-sex marriage amounts to endorsing sinful practices.

World powers resume nuclear talks with Iran BRUSSELS (NY Times) — The global powers dealing with Iran’s disputed nuclear program said Tuesday that they had accepted its offer to resume negotiations broken off in stalemate more than a year ago — a move that could help relieve increased pressure from Israel to use military force against Tehran. “I have offered to resume talks with Iran on the nuclear issue,” said Catherine Ashton,

the European Union’s foreign policy chief, who represents the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany as the contact on the nuclear issue with Iran. “We hope that Iran will now enter into a sustained process of constructive dialogue which will deliver real progress.” The announcement of a new round of face-to-face negotiations — which E.U. officials

said would probably take the form of a series of meetings with no fixed deadline — came as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, which regards Iran as its most dangerous enemy, was in the midst of a two- day visit to the United States to press his view that diplomatic and economic pressures on Iran to dissuade it from developing a nuclear weapon were not working.

Report: Dire poverty falls despite global financial slump

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — A World Bank report shows a broadbased reduction in extreme poverty — and indicates that the global recession, contrary to economists’ expectations, did not increase poverty in the developing world. The report shows that for the first time the proportion of people living in extreme poverty — on less than $1.25 a day — fell in every developing region between 2005 and 2008. And the biggest recession since the Great Depression seems not to have thrown that trend off course, preliminary data from 2010 indicate. The progress is so dramatic that the world has met the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals to cut extreme poverty in half five years before its 2015 deadline. “There has been broad-based progress in fighting poverty, and accelerating progress. There’s a lot to be happy about,” said Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and special adviser to the Millennium Development Goals project.

Budget sails through the school deliberative meeting BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Voters at the deliberative portion of annual Conway School Meeting needed less than 30 seconds to move the proposed 2012-13 school budget forward to a vote in April. About 100 citizens turned out to the meeting which lasted just shy of three hours. "Boy, what a difference a year makes, huh," Rep. Frank McCarthy said commenting on how smoothly Monday's meeting went. Last year over 1,000 people turned out to the deliberative meeting and the budget process got heated. Thing were much calmer Monday. Moderator Doug Burnell opened the floor for discussion on the proposed budget, which, excluding special articles, is $31,901,212, and got no response from the audience. He scanned Loynd Auditorium a second time and again asked for any questions. Seeing none he then struck his gavel and moved the warrant forward to be voted on April 10. Should the budget fail, the default budget, $31,855,122, will fall into place for 2012-13. Last year's adopted budget was $32,958,413. Conway's share of that price tag is $15 million with the sending towns (Albany, Bartlett, Eaton, Freedom, Jackson, Madison and Tamworth) picking up the rest of the tab. Most of the evening followed a similar pattern, flowing smoothly article after article without much discussion. There were a couple of items that did attract conversation — funding for full-day kindergarten; a non-binding referendum on closing one of Conway's elementary schools; funding for a sous chef; and adding two teachers to return to a four-team teaching format at the middle school. The school board has over 20 warrant articles, totaling $1,586,419, that are not part of the presented budget. The budget committee is endorsing 18 of the 20 warrant articles it was charged to oversee. Committee members did not support articles No. 17 and 20. No. 17 is for $166,794 for three teachers at $54,098 each and $1,500 per school for supplies and equipment to establish a full-day kindergarten program in each of the three elementary schools. It is supported by the school board 4-3 (Randy Davison, Klement and Rick Breton in the minority). The budget committee voted 9-8 not to support the article with Maury

McKinney, Greydon Turner, Betty Loynd, Maureen Seavey, Mike DiGregorio, Brian Charles, Kelly DeFeo and Klement in the minority. Budgeteers also narrowly voted against Article No. 20 which is for $98,166 to provide for four academic teams at Kennett Middle School. The article is supported by the school board 4-3 (Davison, Klement and Rick Breton in the minority). The budget committed voted in opposition 8-7-2 with McKinney, Loynd, Seavey, DeFeo, DiGregorio, Charles and Klement in the minority and Mosca and Turner abstaining. McCarthy was one of several people to speak in support of Article No. 15 for $37,002 to 70 percent fund the sous chef position in the MWV Career and Technical Center. The position was previously funded through a Carl Perkins Federal Grant which is no longer available. It is supported by the board 7-0 and the budget committee 13-4 (Marvel, Shakir, Swett and Sares in the minority). "I want this all the way back to the voting booth," McCarthy said and explained the students and staff at Mineral Springs Cafe have rolled out the red carpet the past two years for a Veterans Day luncheon. Over 100 veterans attended each year. "What a difference it makes for veterans," he continued. "The morale goes through the room. I would hate to see it disappear if the sous chef position isn't maintained. This isn't a giveaway; we pay $9 to $10 apiece for the luncheon. The kids give up a day off for the veterans, so please back it up, thank you." Former school board member Patricia Swett also supports the program. "In my idea it's a wonderful program," she said. "If you do away with the position I don't believe (the culinary program) can function. I would urge everyone to vote for this. If you haven't tried Mineral Springs Cage then by all means do so." Lori Babine, director of the MWV Career and Technical Center, said the program has come a long way and grown from its days when it was on the old campus in Conway Village. She recalled it was one room with tables that had to be set up in order to serve soup and sandwiches. "That was the extent of the menu," Babine said. "Now we have 60 seats and a state-of-the-art restaurant. It is by no means a Betty Crocker kitchen, we have all industrial equipment in there. For one person it's just impossible to supervise and insure the safety of everyone." Babine said current sous chef

School board members addressed a sparse crowd at the deliberative portion of Conway’s annual school meeting Monday night at Kennett High School. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO)

Tim Remillard has taken the culinary program to another level. "Tim works with the students one-on-one," she said. "With him we were able to increase course enrollment size. Yes, the program is a lot of fun but the students are also learning what goes on in the hospitality industry." Board member Randy Davison said the the board fully supports

the position. "I voted in favor of this," he said. "If it were our choice we have put it into the budget. If it's not approved it could lead to liability to the district and a decrease in student participation." Voting on the warrant articles will take place April 10 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Conway Community Building in Center Conway.

Relighting business district for little cost To the editor: This is to clarify the facts as to how and why certain street lights were decommisioned to provide savings for all taxpayers and to suggest turning on lights in the business districts at little or no additional cost to taxpayers. In 2009 the selectmen appointed me as their representative to the lighting committee in response to one of my numerous line item reduction suggestions to attain savings in the town budget. My 2008 proposal had been to turn off streetlights in residential areas as some had lighting while others did not. No explanation was available as to why these lights existed other than someone may have requested said lights and the requests were granted. This first resulted in the selectmen deciding to turn off lights on Route 16 from Burger King to Artist Falls Road instead. In 2010 the lighting committee recommended “to decommision streetlights that are not located at an intersection and that are located outside of the village and highway zoning districts.” On May 25, 2010 this was reported by me to the board of selectmen and my motion to proceed with the recommendations of the lighting committee carried unanimously. On Sept. 28, 2010, the selectmen voted 2-3-0 not to follow the lighting committee’s recommendation, instead a motion to turn off every other streetlight, with a few exceptions,

was passed. The 2008 streetlight budget spent was $96,418 before any were turned off with a savings estimated at about $39,917 for the combined shut offs. For some unknown reason as of this writing, the savings were not as great, showing only $31,238 savings. Coupled with the town and other government entities included in the tax rate/reductions in budgets resulted in a reduced tax rate of up to 6 percent with the exception of Conway Village Fire District. The 2012 tax rate, if all budgets included in the tax rate are approved, will increase significantly as the larger government entities are proposing increased spending. It has been stated the Mount Washington Valley Preservation Association may be willing to fund replacing the decorative fixtures on the strip and the village with LED fixtures. This would allow all 33 lights to be turned on at a $59 monthly savings from the current 17 metal halide lights. Any other streetlights turned back on should be accomplished in a manner as to not create a significant increase in spending. A more efficient method of maintenance needs to be utilized as many of the decorative lights that were left on remain burned out for long periods of time. Some on North South Road have been out since last summer. Bob Drinkhall Conway

Please vote for Frank Benesh for Jackson selectman on March 13 To the editor: In Jackson, on March 13, please vote for Frank Benesh for selectman. I had the pleasure of serving for three years with Frank on the board of adjustment. As chairman, Frank was always thoroughly prepared and made sure that the board understood all of the issues from the standpoint of the zoning ordinance and the personal needs of those appealing cases to the board. He brought a high degree of professionalism and impartiality to the deliberations. He did not come with preconceived notions of what was right or wrong but discussed each case openly, fully and fairly. These qualities make Frank an excellent choice for selectman. Frank will also bring strong managerial experience to the board of selectmen. He

holds graduate degrees from MIT and BU and has over 30 years of experience in management and financial services. This experience will serve the town of Jackson well in the coming years as budget, staff and operational issues need to be addressed in tight economic times. In addition to managerial, finance and board of adjustment experience, Frank is also on the Jackson Planning Board and active in local organizations. The board of adjustment and planning board roles give Frank a strong understanding of land use, zoning and permitting in Jackson — issues currently at the forefront in town. Please vote for Frank Benesh on March 13. Joan E. Davies, trustee of the Trust Funds Jackson

We need to install 21st century leadership in Bartlett

Warrant articles affect future of the budget committee

To the citizens of Bartlett: I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to those of you who don’t know me. My name is Edward Furlong and I am running for the position of Bartlett selectman in the vote coming up on Tuesday, March 13, at Bartlett Town Hall. I came to the Mount Washington Valley in 1982 and have lived in Bartlett since 1996, the same year I started my business here, Lil’ Man Snowmobile Rentals and Abenaki Inn and Cabins. I believe Bartlett is one of the best places in the world to live. Before I settled in Bartlett, I traveled the country searching for the perfect place to call home and no place measured up until I found this place, beautiful Bartlett. In recent years I have grown concerned and sometimes became disconcerted as I watched the irresponsible decisions being made by the town selectmen for its citizens and for the Bartlett business owners. I am concerned not only for the wellbeing of my own businesses but for the other small businesses in town as well. It seems that the current board of selectmen stand indifferent to the repeated pleas by the “majority”of business owners to ease up on code enforcement violations and compliance issues while we persevere and compete with other surrounding towns’ businesses (which are more small business friendly) for our diminished market share of the tourism dollar during these tough economic times; such things as putting a banner flag out at the perimeter of ones business to advertise a special event or product would require, under current rules, zoning board approval, this is ridiculous and this is just a sampling of the more austere ordinances that the current Bartlett selectmen engender to oppress small business here.

To the editor, On Wednesday, March 7, at Kennett High School, the Town of Conway will hold its deliberative meeting starting at 7 p.m. You will have an opportunity to debate for or against two petitioned warrant articles which will affect the future of the Conway Budget Com-

We need to install a new “21st century” leadership within the Bartlett selectmen’s office this March 13! Will you, the Citizens of Bartlett, help us enact this change? I am concerned about the current selectmen’s attitude toward fiscal responsibility and transparency, or lack thereof. Will you, the voting electorate of Bartlett, help yourselves by making this a more prosperous and better town to live in and come out on March 13 and vote for your new selectman? I am hopeful, but at the same time remain reserved about the future of Bartlett. I want the future of Bartlett to be bright and successful and I want its citizens to be prosperous and happy. We definitely need to see change on March 13! Please help! As a successful businessman, I have years of experience in the “how to” make the most out of every dollar and, after years of customer service as a businessman and the life experiences of being an erstwhile Hobo (humility is God given) has taught me well. I retain a great deal of “know how” in working out situations to everyone’s satisfaction, and always keeping an eye on diplomacy while doing it. I will ad much needed vitality to our local government, to be sure. I would truly appreciate your vote on March 13 and, be thankful for the opportunity to serve the citizens of this great town of Bartlett as your next selectman. Always espousing integrity and foresight as my primary goal, I will not let you down, you have my word on it! “Out with the old and in with the new”! Time for Change! As Al P. would have said it ... ooh ... aah! Thank you! Then vote: Edward “Hobo Ed” Furlong, Candidate for Selectmen. Edward Furlong Bartlett

Message to Kenney: Turn off phone and pay attention To the editor: I am using this forum to address a few of my concerns regarding commissioner Kenney’s behavior at meetings. I have tried to talk to her during the Wednesday meetings but if she doesn’t like the question or know the answer she just shuts you down. This is my district’s representative and I no longer have a voice because of her inability to listen and respond with a polite, “I’ll get back to you with an answer to that question” response. I find it appalling that she is constantly playing with her phone during every meeting and not paying attention to what is going on around her. That is just bad form and is no way to conduct yourself when you are meant to be doing the county’s business. I also feel the morale of almost every county employee is at an all time low since she has joined the

board. I have yet to see, in the past year, anything of substance she has done to make county government work effectively. I can’t however ask her because she will not talk to me. This can be confirmed by watching the meetings on the website in regard to her behavior. There is much work to be done and an elected official who is always accusing other people of wrong doing is not someone I want managing county government. So my message is this: Commissioner Kenney, please turn your phone off and leave it in your bag and pay attention to what is going on at the meeting you are supposed to be doing the counties business at. One more thing commissioner, stop blaming other people and your computer for your lack of preparedness at meetings. Maureen S Spencer Effingham

mittee. If you believe in the sanctity of voters’ rights, please attend the meeting so you may get an explanation as to why these petition warrant articles were created. Thanks, Michael Digregorio Conway

Farnum has a unique knowledge of Tamworth’s needs To the editor, William Farnum has been a Tamworth selectman for six years, but he has been involved in the town for much longer than that. He has been a planning board member, scout leader, trustee of his church, on the UNH Cooperative Extension advisory committee, Mount Washington Economic Council, Tamworth rescue squad, fire department and a part-time policeman. As a selectman he has been the representative to the Energy Committee, Ordinance Review Committee, Tamworth Economic Development Commission, Tamworth Master Plan and is currently the board’s representative to Cook Memorial Library Board of Trustees. He has taken advantage of workshops and courses offered through state agencies to help him become a more informed and better selectman. Before he as elected to the board he regularly attended selectmen and other boards’ meetings. That, coupled with living his whole life in Tamworth up to now, gives him a unique knowledge of the town’s people and needs. In 2004 he was instrumental in the town meeting cutting $110,000 out of the town budget. As selectman he applied and wrote the grant to make the town buildings more energy efficient and spearheaded the drive to turn off unneeded streetlights thereby saving more money for the taxpayers.

He worked with other board members to purchase the property and buy our own trucks, saving the taxpayers thousands of dollars each year. The additional bonus of sand on the property saves us an estimated $30,000 a year. Selectmen’s meetings are public meetings which means that anyone can attend. That does not mean the public has the right to speak without being invited by the chair. This board schedules an official time for public comments and is open to them at other times during the meeting. They listen carefully to citizens who come to speak to them, are courteous and helpful. However, there may be times during a meeting when they do not want the public to comment. The chair of the meeting has every right, under the law, to make that statement and to enforce it. A selectman has no authority to act on his own. The select board must act together with majority vote at a public meeting. We have a select board of three members with diverse skills and opinions who are working together to save the taxpayers money while still providing us with the services that are needed. I know this because I attend the meetings. I’m voting for William Farnum for selectman and asking you to also vote for him . Ruth G Timchak Tamworth

Article 3 would clearly define building inspector’s job To the editor, After attending the candidates’ night in Jackson I would like to thank both Bob Thompson and Frank Benesh as well as Norman Head for their time and efforts to afford us the opportunity to hear their thoughts and views on matters of the town. The one main difference that I came away with after hearing them speak is that Bob Thompson seems to be more about moving forward with the townspeoples’ wishes and wanting to clearly define the duties of people who work for the town, as well as bring the town’s boards to a higher functioning level with a better cross-section of people who live here with hopes to make better decisions for the town’s goals and wishes. Frank Benesh is currently on the planning board and volunteers to take part in most of the subcommittees along with chairing the ZBA. This would seem to be more of a controlling approach to town government than the diversified approach of Bob’s. Also Frank did mention that he advocates influencing decisions as part of his duties. At the end of the evening Frank chose to use his closing statement to request that people in attendance vote against Article 3 on the town warrant.

Warrant Article 3 would allow the selectmen and the planning board to start from the beginning and present the town with a clear and better process — one that is consistent and in line with state building codes. Currently the Jackson Zoning Ordinance says one thing, the permit and state building codes say another. Voting “yes” would allow the building inspector’s position to be clearly defined. Going to a town meeting and voting on a budget is hardly the place to debate these issues. I would like to see a process that is clear and consistent. Voting yes on 3 allows us to do that and I am not sure why anyone wouldn’t want that to take place. If you are in favor of inspections to build better homes, why wouldn’t you want the best, clear process to do so? Lastly there still would be measures available to building permits while this process is under way, which includes the state inspectors and our fire safety inspector along with the current state codes and zoning ordinance. I hope that this will entice you to find out more on your own about the facts and make an informed decision on what you feel is best for the town of Jackson. Thank you. John Collins Jackson

BLAKE from page one

MEETING from page one

Dalton J. Blake, of Conway, had been missing for almost a week when he was found walking in Ossipee. The next day, according to police, he told his parents he was going out against their wishes. “I think he said he wanted to go to the library,” Conway police spokesman Lt. Chris Perley said. "At about 9 a.m. Conway police received a call from the Blake residence," police said in a written statement. "The caller reported that Blake had left the home without permission and made a comment that they wouldn’t find him this time." An officer located Blake on Wilder Street in Conway, according to the statement, where he was subsequently arrested. Blake was still in custody Tuesday afternoon awaiting his court appearance. Resisting arrest is a class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail. Blake was transported from the police station to Memorial Hospital at one point following a medical incident, the police statement said, but he suffered no injury and was later cleared to return to the Conway Police Department to await a bail hearing.

changes town officials will be requesting at Wednesday's deliberative meeting. Selectmen also plan to ask voters to amend their budget by $8,850 so they can turn streetlights back on in Conway and North Conway Village and along Route 16 from Eastman Road to Artist Falls Road. There should also be several discussions around warrant articles, including one asking for voter approval to accept grant funding for a new police officer and two petitioned warrant articles looking to abolish the budget committee. Two of those warrant articles need to be changed on the floor to avoid problems down the line, changes town officials hope the voters will approve. The budget committee cut of $66,000 from the police department budget was a rejection of a new budgeting method the police commission opted to use this year that relies on three-year averages. The department tried to put contingency money in certain line items for expenditures like retirements and insurance changes that happen year after year. The budget committee, however, rejected the premise that the department budget should include money for expenses they don’t know will occur. Police officials are hoping the voters will reinstate most of that cut. They plan to ask for $49,000. The department originally considered asking for the full $66,000 back, but a vacant position has left the department with $25,000 in savings so far this year, police officials explained on Tuesday, which explains the reduced request. Some $8,000 of that savings, however, would go to increase the part-time officer pay line, which would allow the department to hire part-time officers for nearly 100 shifts this year. This normally isn’t an option, chief Ed Wagner said, but two long-time officers are in just the position to be able to fill this hole this year. It can “help us out with manpower until next year comes.” The request to save out money for part-time help, however, raised concerns from commissioner Theresa Kennett. “It’s just hard to consider it the day before deliberative,” she said. “I truly believe this is a wise investment of our money,” commissioner Rodney King said. The chief and Lt. Chris Perley said they would like to see $12,000 put to part-time help, but Kennett disagreed. $4,000 is all she could agree to, she said. Commissioner David Doherty wanted the full $12,000. “I think it’s a good business answer,” he said, “it’s not a good political answer.” The department also has to revamp the warrant article looking for voter approval for a grant-funded officer that until last week police officials thought would be fully paid for by federal dollars. The department just found out, however, that the grant has been reduced and now requires a local match of at least 25 percent. The grant has also been capped at $125,000, whereas before it would have paid for three years of the officer’s salary and benefits. “That which was free and unencumbered has become not free,” commissioner Kennett said. The department also learned the grant deadline is March 22, meaning the department will have to apply for it before they know whether or not they have the voters' approval to accept it. The grant is only open to communities that previously applied, however, Wagner said, so the town may have a better shot. The town, meanwhile, will be looking to get more money for salt and diesel, along with additional funding for the welfare department. They will also be looking to get more money to turn on the streetlights. The budget committee article, meanwhile, which looks to change the board from statutory to advisory, needs some minor tweaks to bring it into agreement with the town charter. Selectman Michael DiGregorio said Wednesday night’s meeting will be the perfect time to debate the merits of that proposal. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the Lloynd Auditorium. It will likely last several hours.

ROBBERY from page one

both went to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, he said, and the suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of money. The man may have been wearing a mask, Wagner said, but the events happened so fast police have only a limited description. Wagner said the man was “very skinny,” perhaps wearing a hat if not a hooded sweatshirt. Conway officers and the State Police were working to set up a perimeter, he said, but by 4 p.m., 45 minutes after the call, it had been long enough that Wagner was pessimistic they would find the suspect that way. “We’re asking for anyone with any information to please contact us,” he said. He urged residents to maintain heightened caution, although he said the robbery did not appear to be random. “It appears it was a targeted robbery,” Wagner said. “It seems to be happening more and more lately.” Showtimes Good Thru 3/15/12

19, of Eaton, will serve 18 months in Carroll County House of Corrections. Once he gets out, Colcord will have a 3.5 to 7 year suspended state prison sentence hanging over his head for 10 years. He will also be on probation for five years. Further, Colcord was ordered to pay about $1,972,269 in restitution (not counting a 17 percent penalty attached to some of the sentences), take a tour of the New Hampshire State Prison, attend therapy, and complete 500 hours of community service. County attorney Tom Dewhurst said Colcord responded as a firefighter to the blazes that he set. In his confessions, Colcord told investigators how he set various fires. In all there were a total of 11 to 14 fires, said Dewhurst. "The rational in sentencing is due to the defendant's lack of a criminal record, his age and also to address the pain and hardship that was placed upon the victims and the potential victims that could have been hurt by these fires," said Dewhurst. Judge Steven Houran agreed with Dewhurst's recommended sentence. The judge said it's within an acceptable range. "Someone knowing the nature of these charges, the extent of damages in particular but not exclusively to occupied structures that occurred, the fear and concern in communities affected, may wonder why I'm not imposing, even for somebody who is young and has no record, why I'm not imposing stand committed state prison time," said Houran. "The answer to that is brief: rehabilitation." Houran said when sentencing he looks for a sense of remorse. Houran said Colcord showed remorse by con-

fessing. Houran also said it's "obvious" Colcord has family support. Several family members watched Monday's hearing. The judge said the restitution order will stay with Colcord for life until it's paid. Houran said a victim suggested he should impose more community service. However, Houran said he'd rather have Colcord concentrate on restitution. Colcord plead guilty to burning homes on Glines Hill Road in Eaton and Watson Hill Road in Freedom; a cabin on Page Hill Road in Tamworth; two barns on Mooney Hill Road in Madison. He also pleaded guilty starting brush fires in the Pine Barrens and several fires at Purity Spring Resort. Defense attorney Danielle Santuccio said the sentence was appropriate because Colcord had never been in trouble before and he cooperated with investigators. Further, she explained Colcord has been diagnosed with depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The PTSD is a result of responding to a fatal car accident that killed his best friend, Nick Hilliard. "Inexplicably he was left as a 16-year-old high school volunteer to sweep up the scene of his close friend's fatal accident," said Santuccio. "After this incident John was not enrolled in any counseling nor was he offered services by the Madison Fire Department." Santuccio says Colcord enjoys working on cars and would pursue work in the automotive field. Santuccio said Colcord has offered to do chores for the victims. "John doesn't want this small window of time to define the rest of his life," said Santuccio. Houran replied Colcord's mental issues don't excuse his actions.

Former West Ossipee fire chief indicted on Maine arson charge BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — A former West Ossipee fire chief has been indicted on an arson charge in Maine. He has also been arrested in Ossipee on a charge of driving while intoxicated. In mid February, an Oxford County Superior Court Grand Jury indicted Bradley W. Eldridge, 51, Ossipee,on a charge of arson in Porter, Maine. Eldridge allegedly set fire to William Day Jr.'s property on Dec. 24. His arraignment is scheduled for April 13. New Hampshire State Police charged Eldridge with DWI in Ossipee on Jan. 7. Eldridge is due back in court for that charge on March 15. He was released on $900 personal recognizance bail. West Ossipee fire commissioner Greg Howard said Eldridge had been a member of the West Ossipee Fire Department since the 1970s and the chief since the late 1980s until he was fired in March of last year. Eldridge was terminated after he sent fire engine number three to be sold down south without the commissioners' permission. After that,

Eldridge had a series unexcused absences from commission meetings. Some firefighters on the West Ossipee Fire Department had known Eldridge for 20 years, Howard said. "They are disappointed he is where he is now," said Howard describing some of the firefighers' reactions to the news about their former boss. After being terminated from West Ossipee Fire Department, Eldridge went to Madison Fire Department. Madison's deputy fire chief Richard Clark confirmed that Eldridge had been placed on suspension in mid January. "It was done for purposes that had to be done," said Clark. Clark described Eldridge as an "intelligent" and "well trained" firefighter. He said Eldridge had been helpful to the department. Eldridge is the second Madison firefighter to face arson charges. In Carroll County Superior Court on Monday, former Madison firefighter John Colcord, 19, of Eaton, was pleaded guilty to setting numerous fires in May and June. "It's not the most wonderful thing in the world," said Clark about the fact that two Madison firefighters have been charged with arson recently.

Alleged marijuana grower released on $10,000 bail BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The local man arrested for allegedly running a marijuana growing operation on the Kancamagus Highway was released on $10,000 bail after his first court appearance Tuesday. Thomas Heath, 21, of Conway, was arrested Monday and charged with two felonies: possession with intent to sell controlled/narcotic drugs and the manufacturing of controlled/narcotic drugs. The charges stem from a search of

Heath’s residence that allegedly found 20 marijuana plants, growing supplies and a loaded firearm. If found guilty, each charge could bring up to seven years in prison and $100,000 in fines. The search warrant, which was sealed after it was authorized, was for Heath’s residence at 148 Kancamagus Highway in Conway. “Investigators had received a tip that a marijuana hydroponic grow was being attended to in the residence,” the Conway Police Department said in a statement. Conway was assisted by State Police and the Drug Task Force in the arrest.

Lottery sales already legal in Tamworth; no need for town meeting warrant article BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

TAMWORTH — A warrant article legalizing lottery ticket sales in town probably won't be necessary after all. Town meeting will take place on Wednesday March 14, at 7 p.m. at K.A. Brett School. Article 3 on the warrant asks voters to repeal a prohibition on sweepstakes ticket sales that was believed to have been in place since the annual town meeting of 1964. The Ordinance Review Committee was responsible for bringing the issue forward. However, the 1964 voters actually embraced the lottery. At the time, residents voted to allow lottery ticket sales in town by a vote of 185 to 90. Selectmen's chair Willie Farnum, who chaired the Ordinance Review Committee, said the article was put on the warrant in error and he takes full responsibility for it. "We were trying to clean stuff up and we were scrubbing too hard," said Farnum. He says the town can save some time and energy by skipping over the article at town meeting. New Hampshire was the first state to legalize the lottery. Gov. John King signed the sweepstakes bill into law on April 30, 1963. The following year, towns and cities voted on whether they would allow lottery tickets to be sold. "Only 13 of the state's 211 communities voted disapproval of the measure. Sweepstakes tickets went on sale two days later on March 12, 1964," states a written summary of the New Hampshire Lottery on nhlottery.com.

New Hampshire Lottery spokeswoman Maura McCann said sweepstakes tickets have been sold in Tamworth for the last 20 to 30 years. Currently, Monroe is the only municipality where lottery tickets aren't sold, said McCann. Residents at Tamworth town meeting will also be asked to decide if the owners of solar energy systems should be given a property tax exemption for the full assessed value of qualifying equipment. This warrant article would replace a warrant article that was passed 30 years ago that gave people a $500 credit for installing alternative energy systems. Since then the cost of alternative energy systems has increased dramatically, said resident John Mersfelder who was one of the residents who brought the issue to selectmen's attention. Back in June, Mersfelder told the selectmen that residents with solar panels on their homes are trying to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels, reduce carbon dioxide emissions and electrical costs. As for the budgets, selectmen are proposing a general government operations budget of $767,553. Last year, voters passed a general operations budget of $759,452. Selectmen are proposing a $551,944 public safety budget (including fire, ambulance and police). Last year, voters approved a public safety budget of $509,946.

THE ENTREPRENOLOGIST

When saving money just isn’t worth it BY MICHAEL KLINE

In my last column, we discussed getting anything you really want by being willing to pay the price. Of course I was talking philosophically about being willing to pay the personal and emotional price of doing what it takes to get what you want. Today we’re talking about spending real money. Why and when is it better to spend more rather than less? I don’t believe the expression “you get what you pay for," frankly because so often you get far less than you pay for. Further, most of us have had experiences when we paid top dollar only to be disappointed. In our next few articles, I’ll be discussing various categories where saving money is only sometimes a good thing. This week, let’s tackle the category of “cheaper to do it yourself." As an avid doit-yourselfer, I know this is sometimes really stupid. Michael Kline "This life's hard, man, but it's harder if you're stupid!" This quote is often attributed to John Wayne, but my research says it’s actually from the Steven Keats playing Jackie Brown in the movie "The Friends of Eddie Coyle." Regardless, never have truer words been spoken. Certainly, when I act stupid, my life gets harder. Success comes easier when you do things you know how to do (or can learn how to do). I’m stupid when it comes to certain projects, so I hire people smarter than me to do them. In other areas, where I’m smart enough, I do those things myself when I have time. Life is hard enough. Know when you’re too stupid to get involved in something and get help with those things. Remember, confidence should not get confused with ego. If you have experienced that you are able to learn similar skills, then, by all means, have the confidence to jump in and learn new things. If you know deep in your gut that your ego gets you in trouble beyond your skills, you must let it go. Take comfort in the fact that you’re smart enough to know when to hire someone smarter than you. What do you need to be able to do yourself? You need to be able to think about and analyze your business like an entrepreneur. No matter the expertise you have in your particular industry or trade, you need to understand the business that does that work, not just the work it does. You need financial expertise including an understanding of industry benchmarks; you need hiring and supervisory skills; negotiating skills to deal with landlords, suppliers and employees – the list goes on. With very few exceptions, such as medical and legal professions, this is not something you can “sub out." I agree with a widely held sentiment that this is the root cause of most small business failures. The next thing you must master yourself is the difference between doing work and creating systems that do the work. The only way to leverage yourself is to create systems that replicates the work you do. For most other issues, you can decide which to see KLINE page 15

Representatives of the Gibson Center for Senior Services Inc. of North Conway are to appear before the Conway Planning Board for full site-plan revew March 8 for a proposed expansion. The plan includes demolishing the Carriage House and moving its contents to the adjacent residential structure (above) next door. That structure will be renovated for the thrift shop now located in the Carriage House and will also be used for office space. The Sprague dining room is also to be expanded. Parking will be located on the site of the Carriage House. (TOM EASTMAN PHOTO)

Gibson Center plans expansion Senior center to appear before planning board for site-plan review March 8 BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Representatives of the Gibson Center for Senior Services Inc. are scheduled to appear before the planning board March 8 to present plans for a major expansion. The plan involves: * Constructing an addition to connect the existing adjacent Kenison house at 26 Grove Street to the existing garage there; and converting 1,748 square feet of space in those two residential buildings to retail. * Demolishing the existing Gibson Center's Carriage House building, and replacing it with parking. * Constructing associated infrastructure at 14 and 26 Grove Street.

According to plans on file at Conway Town Hall, permitting and design for the project is being done by Bergeron Technical Services of North Conway. Architect for the project is SISR Architecture LLC of Madison. Drainage design and engineering is being done by Civil Solutions LLC of Bartlett. Hired as surveyors was Ammonoosuc Survey Co. of Intervale. Town planning director Tom Irving said a few minor waivers for parking and setbacks are expected as part of the project. “It seems pretty straightforward,” said Irving Tuesday. George Cleveland, executive director of the non-profit senior center, and Shawn Bergeron, of Bergeron Technical Services, said Tuesday that see GIBSON page 13

Lorna Colquhoun joins Division of Economic Development CONCORD — The New Hampshire Division of Economic development has announced the hiring of Lorna Colquhoun of Franconia as the communications and legislative director. “We are excited to have a high performance player like Lorna joining our team,” said Christopher S. Way, interim director. “She is well known in her field, and her experience will allow us to expand our outreach activities to the public regarding business assistance.” Colquhoun spent 20 years as a freelance correspondent for the New Hampshire Union Leader,

beginning in the Monadnock region before moving to the North Country, and at several other newspapers, including the Granite State News in Wolfeboro, the Coos County Democrat in Lancaster and The Telegraph of Nashua. Her work has also appeared in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and other national and regional publications and most recently was the editor of New Hampshire: First in the Nation, highlighting businesses and photographs of the Granite State.

pending all approvals, work could begin as soon as the snow melts, with a projected completion by foliage season. Cleveland, who has served as director for 11 years, said the project will give the Thrift Shop more space at the Kension home next door while also giving the center much-needed additional parking. “The current thrift shop in the Carriage House is tight for space. The exisiting Carriage House will be taken down, as it will give us much needed additional parking,” said Cleveland Tuesday. “By expanding next door, we may be able to add such items as [used] furniture while also having more space to display items,” added Cleveland. “The thrift shop will basically go into the 900-square-foot addition that we are adding to connect the house and the garage. Because the house is of historic interest, we are keeping it pretty much as it is. We also are designing it generically so that down the road, should we need space for things such as respite care, we would be OK for that, too.” He said care will be made to relocate the eisting lilac bushes from the Gibson Center and thrift shop area to the adjoining property, noting, “They're a treasure. We will be retaining a lot of green space, too.” He said the center acquired the Kenison house in 2009 “for about $200,000.” He said the cost of the project is about $500,000, with the center still needing to raise approximately $275,000 to complete the project. “We'll be launching that campaign,” said Cleveland. Serving seniors The center is a non-profit corporation that provides meals, transportation services and social and educational programs to seniors in the greater Mount Washington Valley area. According to its website, the Gibson Center took root from seeds planted in 1973. At that time, a group of volunteers, local churches and the Memorial Hospital “rallied their forces to begin the first senior nutrition program in the Mount Washington Valley area.” Founded in 1979, the center is located in what was the North Conway home of late hometown favorite son and world financial business leader Harvey Dow Gibson (1882-1950). Through the efforts of founding director Glenna Mori, the former Gibson home was leased from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester. The Tri-County Community Action Program was instrumental in funding kitchen and dining room construction. In 2000, a successful capital campaign enabled the center to purchase the building from the Diocese of Manchester and construct a 2,400-squarefoot addition with a new dining room (named after local donor Charlie Sprague) and kitchen. July 2005 saw the Gibson Center assumed ownership of Silver Lake Landing, located on the shores of Silver Lake with 19 independent living apartments. Various grants have enabled the center to undergo repairs to its porch and entrance ways over the past year, according to Cleveland. Executive chef Rick Spencer, co-founder of the Taste of the Mountains Cooking School, and assistant chef David Blodgett, handle the kitchen duties. The center does 63,000 meals a year — 23,000 at the center, and 40,000 through its Meals on Wheels. Meals On Wheels are delivered by volunteers from Madison to Bartlett, east to Chatham and west to Albany. Weekend meals are sent out on Fridays and Blizzard Boxes are assembled and delivered before winter. According to its website, the center's goal is to enable seniors to remain in their homes, while maintaining a high level of independence and quality of life through the offering of an evolving array of programs and services. Programs are designed to serve the needs of these active and passive senior residents through nutrition programs, transportation programs for the elderly and disabled to help meet their daily living needs, social and educational programs to enable them to stay actively involved in their communi-

At least one van is on the road from 7:30 a.m. to around 2 p.m. to bring folks to the center, to medical appointments, pharmacies and shopping.

Pinterest: What is it? SOCIAL MEDIA

BY LISA OAKS

Wow and I thought StumbleUpon was addictive. Pinterest is amazing! What is it? Pinterest is the newest way to share photos. It reminds me of my teenage years when collages were all the rage. I’d get all the Seventeen and Glamour magazines I could find, and the Seventeen magazines were twice the size then so the images really stuck out, and cut out whatever images and words meant something to me that day. In modern times people do this as their Vision Board, with more of a focus. Now KLINE from page 12

do yourself and which to hire out. You need to know basic computer software such as e-mail, web searching, MS Word and Excel and probably a bookkeeping program at a minimum. Technology is easy to overdo. I think some more advanced gizmos out there offer more distraction than benefit for most people. Do you need to be able to create your own website? Clearly not, but some knowledge of what you’re trying to accomplish might save you big bucks. Do you need to know how to create/write your own advertising? Do you even know if you should be advertising? You need to know how to write your marketing plan first. Get help, buy a book, take a class – do something. When implementing advertising, basic graphic design work costs from $25 to $100 or more per hour. Learning to do this yourself is easy enough if you have a knack for it, the time and interest — otherwise, hire it out. Do you need to do your own bookkeeping? You need to be able to understand your books and make decisions based on them. You also need to control your financials and know when things are off. Learn how the books work, and, if the books are done in house, be able to step into the work from time to time. The actual full-time work may be better left to a professional bookkeeper or bookkeeping service. This is especially the case when it comes to making a mess of complicated payroll

it can be done electronically. Pinterest is also considered a trafficdriving site in social media terms and is extremely popular with females in the demographic of 18-34 years old, upper income, from the American heartland. It’s fun and growing fast. But it’s not just for 20-something females. Pinterest is a great marketing tool for businesses. Some of the top 10 brands on Pinterest right now, from a Zoomsphere report, include The Perfect Palette, which is a wedding blog. How see SOCIAL MEDIA page 16

taxes or similar issues that carry huge fines when you mess up. Do you need to be able to do your own office or store buildout? Build-out can contribute from $2,000 to $200,000 to start up or moving costs. When we opened Soyfire Candle, our shelving costs went from $20,000 to $5,000 for the same shelves by shopping for a factory rather than a commercial display supplier. The counter (or cash wrap as it’s called) cost about $200 and a few hours to build ourselves. It looks almost as good, and works better than what costs about $3,000 to buy. Most people think they can paint the walls. If you don’t have a written marketing plan yet, that may be a better investment of

your time, so just hire it out. If you’re on a shoestring budget, you work all night and get it done. When you are hiring help, I really remind you to check references, communicate expectations clearly, monitor progress, and pay on completion. You certainly can’t know everything, but you should know you can figure out just about anything. If you’re not a huge fan of always wanting to figure out how to do something better, faster, smarter or cheaper — this may not be the game for you.

“perfect” is that? The bride (and groom) can virtually create their wedding photo album beforehand! No more “but that wasn’t how I imagined it, dear.” Etsy is number two. Real Simple is also at the top. No surprise there. Given the demographic for Pinterest I would have thought the magazine came up with the idea first. Better Homes and Gardens is also in the top 10. A furniture company, West Elm, uses Pinterest to showcase its products in natural settings and offers decoration tips, like how to create a floor out of pennies. Whole Foods has wonderful boards (my favorite is Super HOT Kitchens) and without any emphasis on promoting specific products. These are brands that use the site well and are seeing its benefits. Of course at this stage with the mostly female demographic it’s not for every business. But it’s likely men will sign up too, and, with the rapid growth in popularity, Pinterest will be around for some time. And since women make more than 80 percent of the purchasing decisions for the home (Bloomberg Businessweek), the mostly female market may not necessarily be a bad thing. Here’s how to get started: * Create an account. You have to be invited but it only took me a day for a reply. Go to www.pinterest. com. * Build a list of people to follow. You can link Pinterest to Facebook for a quick list. * Add the “Pin It” bookmark to your browser toolbar. This lets you “pin” images from other sites to your board. * How it works: When you see something you like anywhere on the web, you simply click on the “Pin It” tab and it will pin the image to your board and automatically link the image back to the original website. * Other features include a search bar, sharing someone else’s pin, collaboration on boards, adding the price

to an image, and pinning videos, which is good for “how-to’s.” Pinterest gives brands a chance to offer an image and not just a message. Consider your mission statement, goals, values and “About” description on Facebook. Create boards that incorporate this information. Think lifestyle-based and not product-based. Have a variety of boards and diversify. What image do you want your followers to carry with them? And keep in mind the more compelling the picture, the more likely it will get re-pinned. Which is how you drive traffic to your site. As with any social media, be consistent and post regularly. Once you commit, stick with it! Remember to “keep the Pinterest conversation going” by liking pins, sharing others pins and even following your favorites on Facebook and Twitter. Another great feature of Pinterest for brands is the ability to have contests. Unlike Facebook, which mandates that you need a third-party application to have a photo contest, with Pinterest you’re good to go. This is a huge opportunity for businesses that want contests but don’t want to pay for and go through the learning curve of a new app on Facebook. Like any social media trend, there’s no guarantee it will be around for the long run. But it’s one of the fastest growing sites. Need more proof of its popularity? I just pinned a Viking range to my “For the Home” board and within a minute received eight re-pins. If that doesn’t convince you, think about this. In the process of creating boards for your business, you may find it helpful in sorting out your own goals and ideas in a visual way. And for those who don’t like to write, posting a picture may truly be, as the saying goes, “worth a thousand words.” Lisa Oaks is owner/consultant at Go Social!

TAX TIME

Home office deductions BY BRIAN KELSCH If you use part of your home for business, you may be able to deduct expenses for the business use of your home. These expenses include insurance, depreciation, mortgage interest, utilities and repairs. There are two basic requirements for your home to qualify for the home office deduction. First, you must use part of your home regularly and exclusively for conducting business. For example, if you use an extra room to run your online business or as administrative office space, you likely can take a home office deduction. Secondly, you must use your home as your principal place of business. This test tends to be more difficult to meet. If you conduct businesses at a location outside of your home, but also use your home substantially and regularly to conduct business, you may qualify for Brian G. Kelsch a home office deduction. For example, if you have in-person meetings with patients, clients or customers in your home in the normal course of your business, even though you also carry on business at another location, you can deduct your expenses for the part of your home used exclusively and regularly for business. You can deduct expenses for a separate free-standing structure, such as a studio, garage or barn, if you use it exclusively and regularly for your business. The structure does not have to be your principal place of business or the only place where you meet patients, clients, or customers. Generally, deductions for a home office are based on the percentage of your home devoted to business use. This percentage is multiplied by the expenses of your home noted above. Often not taken by taxpayers is depreciation expense because they do not want to pay taxes when the home is sold on the deprecation previously taken. This may not be the best position since the IRS may impose tax on depreciation allowed or allowable regardless of whether you actually took the expense. Some feel that home office deductions are “red flags” to the IRS. The IRS has become more lenient in this area in the last decade, but you should still be sure you’re within the rules. My response to “red flags” is that is that if you have a right to a deduction you should take the deduction. Please remember these are general rules and you should always speak with your trusted advisers about you particular situation. Q: Why do tax accountants love weekends? A: Because there is less traffic on the way to work. Brian Kelsch is a Certifi ed Public Accountant at Gamwell, Caputo, Siek & Co., PLCC in Conway. You can reach him at (603) 447-3356.

David J. Fagone, 53, of Derry, ended his life's journey on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at Parkland Medical Center. He was surrounded by his loving wife Carla, family and dear friends. His 7-year battle with recurring cancers was fought with courage, hope and most of all love, teaching us how to accept his illness, with humor and unending faith that his tomorrows would be lived to the fullest. He was born in Arlington, Mass. and grew up in Medford. He was predeceased by his parents, Rudy and Mary Fagone. His heart and soul was his Italian heritage, and he was proud of his family's lifelong traditions.

He graduated from Franklin Pierce College and was currently employed by Kronos Corporation as a tech support engineer. David loved every sport. He was an avid skier, with Center Conway being his second home and loved the snow, the mountains and the freedom of skiing. Amazingly, he skied at Cranmore just three weeks ago. David was a sports enthusiast and loved his New England teams. He coached many years in town for the Derry Recreation baseball and basketball leagues and also played on several of the local men's softball leagues. David is survived by his loving wife, Carla; beautiful daughter,

Topics covered in this particular study circle include Deep Ecology, Wild Nature, Native American Wisdom, The Gaia Hypothesis, The Universe Story, Ecopsychology, Simplicity, Bioregionalism, and more. Participants will explore questions like, “How can we as individuals live a more Earth-centered lifestyle?” “What can be learned from the rich heritage of Native Americans and their relationship with Mother Earth?” “What are the challenges and benefits of living a

Lovell Town Column

Ethel Hurst 207-925-3226

Barbara Murphy speaking at Hobbs Memorial Library March 15 The Lovell town meeting held on Saturday, March 3, saw the Lovell Town Hall filled to capacity. The voters turned out for the contested position of public works commissioner and an important article in reference to the way four important town offices, town clerk, tax collector, building inspector and public works commissioner were filled. The three selectmen recommended that these offices be filled by hiring instead of the long tradition of election. This recommendation was made due to the added complexities of the office and because of the electronic age requirements needed to fill these important offices. After much discussion, the voters agreed to require a committee with a minimum of five people, which would included the three selectmen, be form when needed to hire anyone for one of these positions. Returning to office was Robert Drew, selectman, Janice Arsenault, tax collector, Larry Fox, public works commissioner, and Ron McAllister, building inspector. Once again the John McKeen fishing derby had great weather for the 31 youngsters who tried their luck. It was a busy day at Heald Pond and out of the 31, 10 were lucky. The winners in the 1 to age group were first place, Cadence Allen, second place, Peyton Davidson, and third place, Sydney Dekutoski. Winners in the 9 to 15 age group were first place, Alissa Morin,

second place, Abby Angevine, and third place, a tie with Chris Lakeman and Liam Fox. Rene McDonald, Liam Fox, Grafton Angevine and Luke Angevine received honorable mention. There was a drawing for a new ice fishing tie-up and line which was won by Chris Lakeman. The organizers of this event make sure the kids have a great time feeding them hot dogs, whoopie pies, cookies, hot cocoa and soda. The organizers appreciate the help of Rosie’s Village Store and Restaurant and the Center Lovell Market for their help and support and providing the food and drinks. The goodies were baked by the loyal supports of the derby. Donated bait and drilled holes were provided by Scott Allen. Thanks for all the help. Barbara Murphy will be the monthly speaker for March on Thursday, March 15, at 1 p.m. at Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. An educator from the Oxford County Extension and chair of the statewide “Maine Harvest for Hunger” Barbara will talk about Looking at the Local Hunger – What Can Be Done. The numbers the U.S. Department of Agriculture came up with for Maine “very low food security” second in the U.S. and for “food insecurity” ninth indicated the state has a problem. Among the topics to be discussed is the changing of the emergency food system because of the demand for food assistance. Refreshments will be

served. For more information you can call the Library at (207) 925-3177. On Friday, March 16, the library will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day starting at 6:30 p.m. This event is for children and the big kids also (adults) to have a great time playing Irish games and eating Irish goodies supplied by Miss Liz. Any party with Miss Liz at the helm is fun as will be the movie “A Very Unlucky Leprechaun.” The United Church of Christ will be holding a flea market and bake sale on March 17 at the church starting from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. There will goodies for the taking, crafts, antiques, furniture and flea market items, something for everyone.

Then on Sunday following church service the Ron Ashworth bean and coleslaw cook-off will be held at the United Church of Christ. This event is held to honor Ron Ashworth who was much admired and love while he served the congregation of the United Church of Christ. For those who would like to take part in the cook — off the entrance fee is $10 to enter baked beans and $5 for

Doors open at 6 p.m. with play starting at 6:30 p.m. The only thing the “superstars” take seriously is how bad they can make the other team look. There is a lot of audience participation adding to the hilarity. Refreshments will be available along with Harlem Superstars memorabilia for sale during intermission. Tickets are $8 and are available at all SAD 72 schools and the Bridgton Books Store in Bridgton. Don’t forget with this new snow the chances are better for the Trail Breakers Snow Mobile Club Poker Rally on Saturday, March 10.

The entrance fee is $5 per snowmobile with registration running from 8 a.m. to noon. There will be food, a raffle and 50/50. This is a popular event with a good attendance, one of the groups biggest fund raisers so the rally will take place with or without that white stuff.

DILBERT

by Scott Adams

By Holiday Mathis and you need to teach others. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll be aware of how social conditioning shapes behavior. The one who is trying hard to live up to an image of independence may really need your help. Your compassion helps you see the truth. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You won’t have time to be very selfconscious, because you’re so focused on experiencing all you can in one day. You may even dare to sing solo in public or dance for no reason. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re likely to put more emphasis on substance than form, though not immediately. A lovely package will draw you in. But you won’t stay “in” if there’s nothing compelling inside it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may be concerned about being criticized or judged harshly, but it doesn’t keep you from putting your best work out there for all to see. Your courage keeps you moving forward. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be inspired by a person who really seems to have it all together. You’re already planning your future involvement with this person, whether or not you realize it. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 7). Though a playfulness dominates your energy this year, make no mistake: You still get plenty of serious business accomplished. You’ll purposefully execute new facets of your will through the next 10 weeks. The cast of characters in your personal life changes a bit in May, and you’ll enjoy fresh influences. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 1, 50 and 19.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your will is strong, and what you want may indeed be what is best for everyone. However, you must be careful not to overpower others with the intensity of your passion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The games you choose are hard enough on their own, so there’s no need to put up with team members who drag you down. Seek those who are warm, supportive and positive. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Multitasking will prove to be generally a rotten idea except in the instances of listening to audio books while traveling or making phone calls while you walk an unpopulated stretch of track or sidewalk. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll act in a vigorous and determined way to exert your authority and have a meaningful impact on how things turn out. You may spend a good deal of time working out how you might alter the behavior and thinking of others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you’re feeling discouraged, you’ll rely too much on outer forces to shape your path. That’s why you need to make sure that you’re feeling up and enthusiastic before you ever leave the house. Call a peppy friend. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll go into the day with a take-charge attitude, and you’ll use your knowledge to alter your circumstances. Your winner’s mindset is unstoppable, though you should be warned that some will try. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As much as you may try to avoid being the center of attention today, the eyeballs will still be trained on you. It has to be this way because you know what you’re doing

Yesterday’s Answer


THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, March 7, 2012— Page 23

Today is Wednesday, March 7, the 67th day of 2012. There are 299 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On March 7, 1912, Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen arrived in Hobart, Australia, where he dispatched telegrams announcing his success in leading the first expedition to the South Pole the previous December. On this date: In 1793, during the French Revolutionary Wars, France declared war on Spain. In 1850, in a three-hour speech to the U.S. Senate, Daniel Webster of Massachusetts endorsed the Compromise of 1850 as a means of preserving the Union. In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell received a patent for his telephone. In 1911, President William Howard Taft ordered 20,000 troops to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border in response to the Mexican Revolution. In 1926, the first successful trans-Atlantic radiotelephone conversations took place between New York and London. In 1936, Adolf Hitler ordered his troops to march into the Rhineland, thereby breaking the Treaty of Versailles (vehr-SY’) and the Locarno Pact. In 1945, during World War II, U.S. forces crossed the Rhine River at Remagen, Germany, using the damaged but still usable Ludendorff Bridge. In 1960, Jack Paar returned as host of NBC’s “Tonight Show” nearly a month after walking off in a censorship dispute with the network. In 1965, a march by civil rights demonstrators was broken up in Selma, Ala., by state troopers and a sheriff’s posse. In 1975, the U.S. Senate revised its filibuster rule, allowing 60 senators to limit debate in most cases, instead of the previously required 2/3 of senators present. In 1981, anti-government guerrillas in Colombia executed kidnapped American Bible translator Chester Bitterman, whom they’d accused of being a CIA agent. One year ago: Charlie Sheen was fired from the sitcom “Two and a Half Men” by Warner Bros. Television following repeated misbehavior and weeks of the actor’s angry, often-manic media campaign against his studio bosses. Today’s Birthdays: Photographer Lord Snowdon is 82. TV personality Willard Scott is 78. Auto racer Janet Guthrie is 74. Actor Daniel J. Travanti is 72. Former Walt Disney Co. chief executive officer Michael Eisner is 70. Rock musician Chris White is 69. Actor John Heard is 66. Rock singer Peter Wolf is 66. Rock musician Matthew Fisher is 66. Pro Football Hall-of-Famer Franco Harris is 62. Pro and College Football Hall-of-Famer Lynn Swann is 60. Actor Bryan Cranston is 56. Actress Donna Murphy is 53. Actor Nick Searcy is 53. Golfer Tom Lehman is 53. International Tennis Hall-of-Famer Ivan Lendl is 52. Actress Mary Beth Evans is 51. Singer-actress Taylor Dayne is 50. Actor Bill Brochtrup is 49. Opera singer Denyce Graves is 48. Comedian Wanda Sykes is 48. Rock musician Randy Guss is 45. Actor Peter Sarsgaard is 41. Actress Rachel Weisz is 41. Classical singer Sebastien Izambard is 39. Rock singer Hugo Ferreira is 38. Actress Jenna Fischer is 38. Actress Audrey Marie Anderson is 37. Actor TJ Thyne is 37. Actress Laura Prepon is 32.

Page 26 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, March 7, 2012

FORGIVENESS CAN BRING LOVE INTO A WORLD OF UNCERTAINTY

DEAR ABBY: Several years ago you printed a poem about forgiveness in your column. It described very well the benefits of the practice, and it was accompanied by a sort of “forgiveness schedule” for every day of the week. I clipped the column and saved it, but over time I seem to have lost it. Could you please run this piece again? -- DANIELA IN TORONTO DEAR DANIELA: I’m glad to oblige. The poem you have requested, “Decide to Forgive,” was written by the late Robert Muller, former assistant secretary-general of the United Nations. Now, with so much turmoil going on in the nation and in the world, its sentiments are particularly relevant. This poem is part of a collection of letters, poems and essays that are collected in my booklet “Keepers” because so many Dear Abby readers had clipped them and continue to request that they be reprinted. Here is the poem you have requested: DECIDE TO FORGIVE Decide to forgive For resentment is negative Resentment is poisonous Resentment diminishes and devours the self. Be the first to forgive, To smile and to take the first step And you will see happiness bloom On the face of your human brother or sister. Be always the first Do not wait for others to forgive For by forgiving You become the master of fate The fashioner of life

A doer of miracles. To forgive is the highest, Most beautiful form of love. In return you will receive Untold peace and happiness. And here is the program for achieving a truly forgiving heart: SUNDAY: Forgive yourself. MONDAY: Forgive your family. TUESDAY: Forgive your friends and associates. WEDNESDAY: Forgive across economic lines within your own nation. THURSDAY: Forgive across cultural lines within your own nation. FRIDAY: Forgive across political lines within your own nation. SATURDAY: Forgive other nations. Only the brave know how to forgive. A coward never forgives. It is not in his nature. Since I cannot reprint the continual avalanche of requests I receive for reprints, for those who desire them, my “Keepers” booklet can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby Keepers Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Many people have told me it makes a welcome gift for newlyweds, new parents, animal lovers, those who are grieving, and anyone who is recovering from an illness because it’s a quick and easy read, and filled with wisdom and humor on a wide variety of topics.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860

Koch League Festival draws 600 Ski-a-Thon is today participants to Great Glen Trails –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

PINKHAM NOTCH — It looked like a version of Nordic Olympics for kids at Great Glen Trails March 3 and 4, as nearly 600 young cross country skiers (from first to eighth graders) and their families enjoyed a weekend of fun competition, games and on snow activities at the TD Bank Bill Koch League Festival. Legendary 1976 Olympic Nordic Silver medalist Bill Koch was in attendance, with his own 10-yearold son, Will, and daughter Mehana, 11, skiing with a club from Southern Vermont. “I could hardly be more pleased or think of one thing that could have gone any better,” Koch said afterward. Despite the event being named for him, Koch is still surprised at all the attention he still gets, more than 30 years after his Olympic glory. “I still don’t understand why I get so much attention — cross country skiing is really the thing-Bill Koch is only a circumstance. It’s the spirit of the sport that will always be the basic gold standard,” Koch observed, after marveling at the hundreds who lined up for his autograph. Participants and their families came from throughout the Northeast and enjoyed a full weekend of fun activities and competitions, including the opening ceremonies and parade; relay races based on grade levels; a non-competitive ski tour including

themed elements and characters; a fairy house trail; on snow obstacle course and other usual Great Glen Trails activities (like snow tubing). From the Lollipop race for the youngest kids to the on snow graduation (including a short run down the bottom of the snow covered Auto Road) for the eighth graders, each relay and race came off without a hitch. “We are all so thrilled that the event went so well. It’s just so wonderful to see all these families enjoying time cross country skiing together. I’m incredibly proud of our staff, the volunteers and the local skiing community who all pulled together to make this such a successful event-and we had a taste of every kind of Mt. Washington weather-except rain!” noted Sue Wemyss, Ski School Director at Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center (and a XC Olympian herself from the 1984 US team). The event was co-hosted by the New England Nordic Ski Association. Title event sponsor was TD Bank and the presenting sponsors were the “The Valley Originals.” Other event sponsors included: LL Bean, The Trapp family Lodge, Swix, Stonyfield Yogurt, Choucas, Rossignol, Toko, Alpina, Salomon, Ragged Mountain, Polartec and Dasani.

JACKSON — The 2012 Jackson Grammar School Ski-a-Thon will take place today from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation. This event is open to kids, parents, teachers, local skiers and community members. Participants ski as many 1K laps around the Wentworth Fields at Jackson Ski Touring Foundation as they can within the allowed time. Snacks and drinks are available at the end of each lap. Last year, students skied over 700 laps and raised over $6000 in pledges, which was donated to: Animal Rescue League North, Jackson Ski Touring Foundation, and the Jackson PTO. This year, in addition to JSTF and the Jackson PTO, they will be skiing to raise money for Northeast Passage (website - http:// www.nepassage.org/). Pledges can be in any amount, skiers often receive $0.25, $0.50, $1.00, or more per lap depending on how many laps they plan on skiing or you can pledge based on the average number of laps skied as a whole. Or contributions can be made directly to the Jackson PTO at PO Box 383, Jackson 03846. An awards ceremony will take place at the Whitney Center about two weeks after the event where everyone who participated or raised money will win a prize, according to organizers. To participate or make a pledge, contact Steve Piotrow at piotrow@ncia.net or call 383-9903 for more information.
