Rent-free historic mansions

NEW YORK (NY Times) — For more than two decades, Roy Fox, a retired radio host who earns a modest pension, has been enviably situated in an airy abode with park views, burnished wood floors and historic detailing. In fact, he is the sole resident of a 29-room mansion in Jamaica, Queens, constructed before the Declaration of Independence was written. Fox, 72, is one of only 19 people lucky enough to nab the role of resident caretaker of a city-owned historic home, a job that comes with no salary but they not only live in some of the city’s most splendid manors, but they also do so completely rent-free. The little-known program under the auspices of the Historic House Trust, administered by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation in partnership with private organizations that care for the properties, was established to ensure that someone was around to protect these buildings from vandalism, fire and frost. Even though the applications are easily available online and anyone can apply, many of the positions go to those with connections to the world of historical preservation. Still, there is remarkably little competition for the slots and no requirement to reapply, so those who are handed the keys to these mansions often keep them for decades. The city even pays the utilities.


All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon the sand.” —Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Zimmerman: ‘I am sorry’ records are from 3/1/74 to present

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

SANFORD, Fla. (NY Times) — Speaking publicly for the first time, George Zimmerman, the man accused of second-degree murder in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, briefly took the witness stand at his bail hearing on Friday and apologized to Martin’s parents. “I wanted to say I am sorry for the loss of your son,” Zimmerman, 28, said as he took the stand. “I did not know how old he was. I

thought he was a little bit younger than I am. I did not know if he was armed or not.” Martin’s parents, Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton, sitting in the second row of the small courtroom here, showed little emotion during Zimmerman’s remarks. They did not comment after the hearing ended, hurrying to a waiting car. Their lawyer, Benjamin Crump, said Mar-

Syrian protesters mock cease-fire, U.N. observers

BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Demonstrations erupted across Syria on Friday, with some of the protesters’ anger focused on the United Nations observers, who have decided that they will not circulate on Fridays, the normal day for mass rallies that are suppressed by the government. Despite an ostensible cease-fire, violence flared across the country, with a roadside bomb killing 10 soldiers in the south, according to the state-run news, while YouTube videos posted from the devastated city of Homs showed flames and

intense black smoke after government shelling of a downtown residential neighborhood. Col. Ahmed Himmiche, the Moroccan officer heading the advance team of United Nations observers in Syria, was quoted as telling reporters in Damascus that they would avoid Friday patrols, a statement that undermined the group’s already threadbare credibility with many who have experienced the brunt of government oppression. “We don’t want to be used as a tool for escalating the situation,” he said.

tin’s family was “completely devastated” by the judge’s decision to allow Zimmerman to be released from jail on $150,000 bail, which was considerably lower than the $1 million requested by prosecutors. Martin was unarmed when he was shot and killed while walking home on Feb. 26 through the gated community where Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch volunteer.

Judge blocks death sentence under law on race disparity FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (NY Times) — Concluding that racial bias played a significant factor in the sentencing of a man to death here 18 years ago, a judge on Friday ordered that the man’s sentence be changed to life in prison without parole, the first such decision under North Carolina’s controversial Racial Justice Act. The landmark ruling could be the first of many under the law, which allows defendants and death row inmates to present evidence, including statistical patterns, that race played a major role in their being sentenced to death. It is also likely to influence the nation’s enduring discussion over capital punishment, particularly with an increasing number of states deciding to repeal the death penalty outright. “This opinion will profoundly shape any ongoing debate about this,” said Douglas A. Berman, a law professor at Ohio State University who runs the blog Sentencing and Law Policy.

Tuckerman Inferno, Wildcat Wildfire pentathlons today BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

PINKHAM NOTCH — April means it’s Inferno time in Mount Washington Valley. Carrying on the tradition of spring racing in Tuckerman Ravine that dates back to the first Mount Washington Inferno in 1933, Friends of Tuckerman Ravine — the nonprofit, member-supported group that was formed a decade ago to help raise funds for the U.S. Forest Service’s snow rangers program as well as to preserve and protect the traditional back-country uses of Mount Washington’s Tuckerman Ravine — is presenting the 12th annual Tuckerman Inferno and Wildcat Wildfire Pentathlons April 21. Although there has been concern about snowfall conditions for the race in the ravine this low snowfall year, lead snow ranger Chris Joosen and Friends of Tuckerman Ravine president Jake Risch say a preliminary determination has been to set today’s ski course on Left Gully. “The race crew and I will make Left Gully work so participants have fun and are as safe as possible in our high alpine mountain environment,” noted Joosen earlier in the week. The Mount Washington Observatory is predicting fog for the morning and rain showers becoming likely during the afternoon, some of which could be accompanied by a rumble of thunder. Temperatures will remain above average throughout the forecast period as a mild south-to-southwest flow persists. The five-part Tuckerman Inferno

gets under way at 7 a.m. with an 8.3mile run at Story Land that will proceed to Attitash’s Thorne Pond. It then consists of a kayak/canoe leg down the Saco River. The transition has been changed this year from the Kalil property near Humphrey’s Ledge on the West Side Road further upstream to Glen Ellis Campground off Route 302 in Glen. “It will make for a safer transition for cyclists as it will be away from the busy road,” said Jake Risch. Cyclists will then travel from Glen Ledge Campground west on Route 302, and then north up over Glen Ledge Road — an extra loop on Birch Ledge Road has been added to make up for the loss of mileage that the old course had on West Side Road. After joining Route 16, cyclists in a new twist this year will then turn right and travel through the Jackson Covered Bridge onto Route 16-A through the village before rejoining Route 16 near the Shannon Door Pub. They then head north up Pinkham Notch to the transition zone, located at the southern end of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Pinkham Notch Visitor Center. There, hikers on leg four head up the Tuckerman Ravine Trail to the “Bowl” of the ravine, where Left Gully awaits for the final ski or snowboard leg. The five-part Wildcat Wildfire will start at Story Land an hour later at 8 a.m., and will follow much of the same course, except for the bicycle leg, hiking and ski legs. The bicycle leg ends at now closed Wildcat Mountain. see INFERNO page 18

April 14-20, 2012


Saturday, April 14 * The local law enforcement community is saddened and angered by shootings in Greenland that took the life of police chief Michael Maloney, 48. * Just days before the fatal Greenland shooting, police hold a training exercise at the former Heritage-New Hampshire building in Glen on handling life-threatening situations. * Attacks on police officers are on the rise in the country, even though violent crime has decreased. * Another 2.5 miles will be added to the Fryeburg Mountain Division recreation trail that was started last year. Tuesday, April 17 * Dry conditions are fueling brush fires across the region. “Things are pretty volatile,” says Freedom fire chief Justin Brooks. * Blue Loon Transit officials meet April 20 to figure out what to do about Conway, which rejected their funding request for a dial-a-ride service. The Blue Loon asked a dozen towns to help fund the program, and only Conway voters said no. * Conway School Board puts off voting on whether to buy its own electronic voting machine.

Tele-Talk How should searches and rescues in the White Mountains be funded? “Reckless and negligent” hikers who get lost in the White Mountains may get billed if N.H. Fish and Game has to come to their rescue. A Massachusetts woman was billed $7,000 after she got lost on Mount Jackson last March. But rescue volunteers who led her out of the wood believe that, in her case, the $7,000 bill was unjustified. The hiker was experienced and prepared, but, “She just had some bad luck,” said one of the rescuers. Major Kevin Jordan, of N.H. Fish and Game, said a “series of errors in judgment” necessitated the rescue, and “the whole situation could have been avoided completely.” Jordan said hikers and climbers make up over half the rescues the department responds to, but they don’t contribute to the state’s search-and-rescue fund because there are no licenses or fees required for hiking. Without billing hikers, where would money for search and rescues come from? Jordan suggests the “fair answer” is the rooms and meals tax. But state Sen. Jeb Bradley, himself a hiker, disagrees, saying using rooms and meals money for rescues would mean cutting from other programs. He also says that “any hiker who needs to be rescued should be prepared to pay,” although he questions whether the Massachusetts woman who got lost on Mount Jackson should have been charged the full amount.

Wednesday, April 18 * The New England In sells at foreclosure auction in less than 15 minutes, with former owners Chet and Chris Hooper purchasing the 1809-built inn and its Tuckerman’s Tavern Restaurant, indoor pool and cabins for $640,000. * Tin Mountain Conservation Center is halfway toward its fund-raising goal of between $100,000 and $150,000 to construct a new cabin to house interns and guest speakers at the organization’s Nature Learning Center on Bald Hill Road in Albany. * The fate of the old nursing home is still undecided. Lawmakers fail to approve a plan for the building after an hour and a half debate.

Kudos to Ed Parsons on hiking column To the editor: Just a quick note to say how much we enjoy Ed Parsons’ hiking column. We moved to the White Mountains about three years ago from a crime-infested city in the mid-Atlantic. Every day I wake up pinching myself — I can’t believe how blessed we are to live here, and for the myriad hiking trails that are literally in our backyard. When I read Ed Parsons’ column I think, “Oh! We’ve been there!” or “We’ve got to try that one!” And even if certain suggestions are too challenging or beyond our stamina levels, we enjoy reading about them. I also like the fact that he covers some of the lesser-known spots. We live at the base of Sugarloaf/Speckled Mountain and have enjoyed bushwhacking, and walking and

hiking snowmobile trails and old logging roads year round. Even the more popular trails around here are extremely underpopulated and it’s rare to see other hikers. Yesterday after work we took our kayaks and went fishing and I caught my firstever fish. I didn’t know what I was doing — I am sure my city clumsiness is the butt of many a joke around here — but my joy was no different than a child’s. I can assure you my city friends would never dream of taking an hour after work to relax in this way. I can feel years of stress literally melting away. This really IS the way life should be. Even though I wish we could have made this move decades ago, it is never too late! Galia Berry Stoneham

Liberals, moderates see selves as humans To the editor: By definition, liberal is open minded, unbiased, one who favors greater political and religious freedom. That doesn’t seem so very evil. It is unfortunate that Mr. Winters missed the cruz of Paul Chant’s courageous and informative article. The focus and concern is about the loss of rights for women due to the audacity of male conservatives dictating family planning. Not politics alone. Mark Winters states he wants limited and restrained government. I agree. Government needs to restrain itself from interferring with personal choice. Also, limit

itself from wasting time and money on religious issues, and focus on state matters. Let me raise the question. What happens to the childrne that are not wanted or the family that economically can’t afford more children? They are forced to rely on government assistance. Birth control is less expensive andis sensible. My message to the senate is leave the issue alone, mind your own business and start working on more pressing matters. Ladies, start paying attention. If you don’t next there may be a severe shortage of women’s footwear. Laura Weaver Center Ossipee

Rescuers question $7,000 bill for lost hiker

CONWAY — Officials are defending a $7,000 bill the state handed a Massachusetts woman for her rescue after she got lost in the White Mountain National Forest last year, but the rescue volunteers who led her out of the woods call it unjustified. “She just had some bad luck,” said Steve Larson, one three members of the North Conway-based Mountain Rescue Service who led Julie Horgan off Mount Jackson. She had spent the night in zero-degree temperatures enduring 50-mile-perhour winds near the summit of the 4,052 foot mountain. “We all expected a much worse scenario than what we found,” he said. “She was in much better shape than I would have been had I gone through what she went through.” Horgan, 62, of Milton, Mass., was aware inclement weather was forecasted for the higher summits on March 26, 2011, the day of her hike. but she wasn’t especially concerned. She had 14 years experience, she said, and had done the hike before nine times, including several winter ascents. see next page

(JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO) from preceding page

“This was really just supposed to be an easy day hike,” she said. The forecast was a consideration, but “above treeline for Mount Jackson is literally five minutes.” She made her way to the summit without issue, but when she turned to go down something went wrong. “I thought I was on the right trail,” she said. “I thought it was covered in snow.” But she wasn’t. As she worked her way down to the trees the trail she was following petered out. Blowing snow covered her snowshoe tracks. “I couldn’t for the life of me find the trail,” she said. By 2:45 p.m. she realized she was lost. She called the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center on her cell phone, she said, and asked if someone could come up so she could find the trail. The AMC contacted the Department of Fish and Game. “When the AMC said we called Fish and Game I said no, please no,” Horgan said, but a conservation officer was already on the way up to try to connect with her. She was told to stay where she was, so she did. The searchers got to the top of the mountain around 8 p.m. “By that time it was dark, very very windy,” Horgan

said. She couldn’t see or hear anyone, leaving her no better indication where she was. “So I spent the night.” She had enough clothing to endure the well below freezing temperatures, and she found a spot among the trees that was relatively sheltered. “My head never got cold. My hands never got cold. When I did get cold I did jumping jacks,” she said. “I spent the night and I was OK.” In the morning, around 9:45 a.m., she looked up to see a National Guard helicopter fly overhead. It was part of the search for her, she figured, so she waved. About four minutes later three local mountaineers who are members of the volunteer Mountain Rescue Service appeared. “We just walked down,” she said. “It was pretty brutal. We were certainly anticipating some injuries,” Alain Comeau, one of the three rescuers, said at the time. “It was a surprise to find her in good health. She was well equipped. She did everything right.” The state, however, did not see it that way. Horgan had the gear and the skills to survive hostile conditions, Maj. Kevin Jordan of the Department of Fish and Game’s law enforcement division said, but “that’s a separate action than what got her into this situation.” see next page

Page 14 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 21, 2012

from preceding page

What got her into the situation were a series of errors in judgment, he said. She did not heed weather warnings, bring adequate navigation equipment or pack extra food. “The whole situation could have been avoided completely.” The bill Horgan received would have been for $7,471.74, Jordan said, to offset the Fish and Game Department’s expenses, but Horgan donated $500 to the New Hampshire Outdoor Council, an organization that supports search and rescue groups around the state. The state applied that donation to her bill, leaving Horgan a $6,971 balance. “That comes from the expenses for the rescue to go and get her,” Jordan said. It does not, however, include the cost of the National Guard helicopter, he said, or the services of the multiple volunteer groups that responded. It covered the cost of the 12 Fish and Game conservation officers who responded, he said. The department had people above treeline all night. The Sun has requested a copy of the bill, along with other documentation on Horgan’s rescue, under the state Right To Know law. The chief of law enforcement for Fish and Game said in a letter it will take at least 60 days to review the request. Volunteer rescuers and others, meanwhile, said the state is trying to balance the Fish and Game search and rescue budget on the backs of hikers who simply suffer accidents. “This is all a desperate attempt to extract money from hikers and climbers,” said Rick Wilcox, the president of Mountain Rescue Service. “We don’t think think they’re going in the right direction by billing the type of hiker this lady represents.” “They are continually lowering the bar,” Steve Larson said. It used to be someone had to exhibit reckless behavior to get charged for their rescue. Horgan got lost on a day hike and survived an intolerable night. “She was in a terrible place, and it was freezing cold,” he said. “All she needed was to be shown the way.” Even Jeb Bradley, the avid hiker and Republican state senator who

represents most of the Mount Washington Valley, has questions. “Any hiker who needs to be rescued should be prepared to pay,” he said, but the bill should be a standard fee around $800 or $1,000. “I’m not exactly sure why she’s being charged the full boat here.” “They have to be reckless and negligent before they’re charged,” Maj. Jordan said, which Horgan was. “Am I negligent because I got lost?” Horgan said. “I guess that’s the question.” In the past, according to Wilcox, the reckless and negligent designation was reserved people like the Appalachian Trail through-hiker who got so drunk and stoned he collapsed on the trail. “Sixteen people had to drag him out,” Wilcox said. “I can agree with the law with the original intention,” he said, but “I think they crossed the line with this lady.” Horgan’s rescue and bill, however, is only a symptom of the larger struggle for Fish and Game faces. Hikers and climbers make up just over half the rescues the department responds to, many of which are expensive and time consuming, but unlike fishermen, hunters, snowmobile operators and ATV drivers, hikers don’t contribute to the search and rescue fund, an account that has seen growing deficits year after year. “These are the people demanding the lion’s share of the rescues,” Jordan said, and yet they aren’t paying for them. There is no license required for hiking. There are no registration fees for hiking boots. Licenses fees and registrations are what fund the Fish and Game search and rescue budget. “Therein lies the problem.” Rescue volunteers understand the problem, but they worry about the implications of that approach. “We don’t want people to feel threatened if they call for help,” Wilcox said. Concerns about being handed a bill could persuade people to wait until it’s too late, which could turn more rescues into body recoveries. And that wouldn’t help anyone. The department does not charge for searches that end in a body recovery, according to Jordan, even in cases of gross negligence.

The department implored the legislature not to “put us in a position where we have to do that,” he said. But without billing hikers, however, where will the money come from? “The state of New Hampshire spends a lot of money encouraging people to come up here,” Larson said. The state relies on the tourism dollars generated by those visitors. “These rescues should be the cost of doing business.” That’s a funding method Jordan also would like to see implemented. “The fair answer is rooms and meals,” he said. “That’s where the money for this should come from.” But Bradley, who has looked at that possibility, disagrees. “What other program do we want to cut?” he said. This year the legislature allocated $50,000 of the general fund for the search and rescue fund, he said, in

recognition of the problem. “It was a first step,” he said. But the account is still looking at a deficit well in excess of $50,000, according to Jordan. In 2011 it was overspent by $166,992. That leaves the department trying to make up the difference with bills. “Make no mistake,” he said, “this is not the answer.” “I know what the answer is,” he said, referring to the rooms and meals tax, “I just don’t know how to get there.” Wilcox, meanwhile, doesn’t want to see rescue bills hurt the relationship between the state and the hikers who make up the volunteer groups that support rescues in the White Mountains, a relationship that goes back four decades in Mountain Rescue Service’s case. “It’s a super system,” he said. MRS volunteers have responded to 500 rescues since the group was formed. “How about a bill on that?”

Gravink, Palmer inducted into U.S. Ski Hall of Fame BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

SEATTLE, WASH. — New Hampshire was well represented during the International Skiing History Association’s Ski Heritage Week in the Pacific Northwest April 13 and 14, with former Attitash CEO Phil Gravink of Jackson, former aerialist Joe Pack and former Olympian Tyler Palmer of Keasarge inducted into U.S. National Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame and three Granite State authors honored for their ski history books. The three New Hampshire men were part of an eight-member Class of 2012. The Hall of Fame ceremony, which rotates around the country each year, was in Seattle for the 50th anniversary ski and snowboard manufacturer K2, which received the hall’s Legends of Skiing Award. Others honored included the late Nick Badami, who played a pivotal role with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association and the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games; late ski historian Mason Beekley, speed skier and author Dick Dorworth, ski show pioneer Harry Leonard, and two-time Olympian Eva Twardokens. Bob Beattie, the legendary ski coach and television commentator who grew up in Manchester, received lifetime achievement awards from both ISHA and the North American Snow Sports Journalists Association during the ISHA awards banquet. Phil Gravink Phil Gravink was a key player for 35 years at the national level in ski area management. After graduating from college he started out helping run his family’s farm in New York State before founding an area known as Peek’n Peak. He went on to head Gore Mountain and later New Hampshire’s Loon Mountain, developing it into a leading modern resort. He was also a key player in influencing the policies of the U.S. Forest Service and served as a National Ski Areas Association director for 18 years including a term as chairman. He received the NSAA’s Sherman Adams Award for his leadership as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award and the BEWI Award. He currently sits on the board

of the New England Ski Museum. “To be chosen as one of the two ‘builders’ of the ski industry with Nick Badami was especially meaningful to me,” said Gravink, noting that he especially enjoyed being there with Tyler Palmer and Joe Pack, both of whom have New Hampshire roots. “Everyone was saying that it was a New Hampshire year, because we also had three New Hampshire authors honored.”

Tyler Palmer A 1969 junior champion, New Hampshire’s Tyler Palmer was a dominant racer on the newly formed World Cup tour in the 1970’s. In 1971, he was the first American male to crack the top three overall in slalom. During his career he won two World Cup slaloms, reached the podium four times and had nine top tens. Later he raced on Bob Beattie’s World Pro-

fessional Ski Tour where he won five races. A National Masters Champion several times Palmer was a coach for junior racers at Sun Valley until his retirement in 2010. “Among those I want to thank are all the ski area operators who supported and encouraged us in the sport of ski racing that has meant so much to me,” said Palmer. “Most of all, I see next page

want thank the men who helped me and let me become one of them: Spider Sabich, who taught me how to live my life to be able to win ski races and be myself; Jimmie Heuga, who schooled me on how to setup a day of ski racing, who organized my mind for me; Billy Kidd, who I grew up idolizing and roomed with on my first trip to Europe and who had an infinite amount of patience and taught a scatter brained kid how important the mind can be in ski racing. Without these giants, I wouldn’t be here. What an awesome trio of teachers – I owe a great deal to all of them. And then there was Beats – Bob Beattie, who had meant so much to the generation before me and, even more, to my generation.”

Joe Pack Joe Pack learned to ski in New Hampshire, where he started ski jumping as a youngster. His family later moved from Hopkinton to Park City, Utah, where he honed his skills as an aerialist. Pack’s ski jumping career culminated with a silver medal in the 2002 Olympics in Deer Valley. Nominations for the Hall of Fame are open to the public with the process managed by the Hall of Fame’s National Selection Committee followed by a vote of over 100 skiing experts and enthusiasts who make up its National Voting Panel. In addition to the induction ceremony in Seattle, a formal enshrinement will be held at the Ishpeming Hall of Fame this fall. Nominations for the Class of 2012 are now open but will close on April

Among those attending this year’s U.S. Ski Hall of Fame induction ceremonies April 14 in Seattle, Wash., were the following people with ties to New Hampshire: Cannon Mountain author Meghan McPhaul; New Hampshire U.S. Ski Hall of Fame inductees Phil Gravink, Joe Pack and Tyler Palmer, “Over the Headwall” author Jeff Leich of North Conway and the New England Ski Museum, and former Attitash general manager Tom Chasse, now of Schweitzer Mountain Ski Area in Idaho.

Cannon and Gunstock are among the oldest ski areas in the country, and Tuckerman Ravine, on Mount Washington, has been a skiers’ favorite since the sport emerged in New England in the early 1920s. ISHA historian Morten Lund reviewed each book prior to the Writers and Filmmakers Awards Banquet, held April 13 at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. In “A History of Cannon Mountain,” Lund said, “The author’s talent in writing the oft-neglected biographies of Cannon’s pioneer skiers and developers in such delightful detail is commended and certain the reader’s good fortune.” Of “Over the Headwall” Lund

said, “This wonderful book by New England Ski Museum executive director Jeff Leich … showcases Mount Washington’s intrepid early American skiers daring fate on the crude equipment of the day.” Lund called “The History of Gunstock” an “extensively researched ski history” that reveals detail about the area which had the first chairlift in the East and is home of Olympic racer Penny Pitou. The two evening celebrations capped a week-long ISHA Skiing Heritage Week, which included several days of skiing throughout the Pacific Northwest. ‘Birthplace of Organized American Skiing’

INFERNO from page 3

Jake Rich said he and Wildcat general manager Josh Boyd have chosen terrain that will be suitable for the ski leg at Wildcat, which shut it lifts down for the season April 15. Lubin back to defend solo title The Inferno field includes 26 teams of five (one of whom must be of the opposite sex), 26 solo TuckerMen and four TuckerWomen competitors, according to coordinator Donna Woodward. Returning to defend his solo TuckerMan title is Ken Lubin of Milbury, Mass., a past runnerup, who won his first solo title in 4 hours, 11 minutes and 21.90 seconds. He was followed by James Kovacs in 4:14:19.71, and Josh Flanagan, who was third in 4:15:28.59, both of whom are returning. Past winner Pete Ostroski of Intervale is not competing this year, as he is just back from Alaska. “I am not entering the race because even though I could probably do it, I have not specifically trained for it and I don’t want to risk injury,” said Ostroski this week. The four TuckerWomen this weekend include last year’s winner, Daniela Marquez, who last year had a time of 5:26:00.08. She will be joined by Joanne Grogan, Kelly Michaelsen and Jane Vanni. Last year’s top Tuckerman Team, Team Lake Placid, is not in the field this year, but last year’s second-place finishers, Team AXA, are back, as are the third-place finishers, the Iron Rangers. Team AXA last year had a time of 3 hours 32 minutes and 59.17 seconds behind Lake Placid, which won its second title in 3:29:59.17. Joining the team field are Cooper, Cargill and Chant of North Conway (Becky Oleson, Andy Brown, Aaron Wood, Dennis Morgan and Chris Meier) and VTXC-Trapp, headed by Sam von Trapp of Trapp Family Lodge fame. The Inferno also features a Dynamic Duo category, which last year was won by Water Acquity of Milford, Mass. The team’s duo of Dave Mingori and Marc Trahan is returning, according to Woodward. Registered to defend their title in

the five-team, all-women’s team class is Team Wildthings of North Conway, which last year won in 4:22:32.30. New to the team this year is Liz Stockinger, who joins Kelsey Allen, Meredith Piotrow, Fabienne Pattison and Suzie Carrier. Also returning is last year’s secondplace Valley Girls team, consisting of Cathy Livingston, Lynn Lyman and Carrie McLane with newcomers Laura McLane and Sandra Iacozili. In the Wildcat Wildfire, last year’s winning team — the West County Old Stars — will return to defend their title in the three-team , along with last year’s second-place finishers, the Ski Dads. New this year is Team Waters Patrol. Seven teams will compete in the Dynamic Duo category, including last year’s second-place finishers, Waters Synapt. Two competitors will compete In the solo Wildcat WildMan competition, and one woman, Valerie Rothen of the Memorial Hospital will compete. “In the Inferno, we have teams from as far away as New York and New Jersey,” said Woodward Friday. Aiding the forest service Proceeds from the race benefit Friends of Tuckerman Ravine’s education programs in the ravine as well as projects that help the snow rangers, notes Jake Risch, a former Army captain who was elected president of Friends of Tuckerman late last year. “This winter we have been working with Chris [Joosen] on several short term and long term projects that the Friends of Tuckerman Ravine can accomplish to further our mission,” said Risch. “Building on the success of the Avalanche Slat Board project, Chris has requested two more projects be accomplished using the successful partnership model used to replace the Avalanche Warning Slat Boards.” To accomplish these projects the Snow Rangers determine the design and materials required, he said, while Friends of Tuckerman Ravine solicits donations and purchases the material and jointly the snow rangers and Friends of Tuckerman volunteers provide the labor to accomplish the project. see next page

A gentle hike up Dearborn Trail Hiking ––––– Ed Parsons

On a beautiful day this week, a good acquaintance and I climbed the 1.4 mile Dearborn Trail up Green Mountain (1,884 feet) in Effingham. All I can say is, if I needed to have an informal business meeting with someone, I would pick a place like that. Why not? It was a gentle hike up through sun lit open woods. On top we climbed up the stairs of the fire tower to the top platform below the locked cab, where there was a bench and great views. My companion had her mellow dog along, so I actually had two pleasant companions that afternoon. Half way up the trail, we spied a porcupine up in a tree. Later on the way down, we surprised it on the ground. The dog rushed up to it, but like I said it was a mellow dog. With some emphasized words from its master, it refrained from attack, and let the porcupine climb the tree. see next page

My hiking companion had a story of hiking with another acquaintance who had a more aggressive dog. Their uphill hike ended abruptly after the dog attacked a porcupine and got a mouth full of quills. Their only option was to head down to the vets. I go way back with Green Mountain. It was my first mountain hike, climbed with my family in the (God forbid) late 1950s. But I have never veered from the 1.4 mile Highwatch Trail on the north side. From the fire tower stairwell, I have looked down at the sign for the Dearborn Trail and thought someday I would do it. Thursday was the day. We met and car pooled, heading south down Route 153 from Route 25. In approximately 3.7 miles we turned sharp right on Hobbs Road and drove in a mile and parked at the end at the trailhead. The Highwatch Preserve, owned by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, encompasses a substantial portion of Green Mountain. The 87 acre Dearborn Tract was added to the preserve in 2006, forever preserving the Dearborn Trail, which has been open since the mid-1990s. The two of us climbed steadily up the trail, but the dog followed a different olfactory drummer. Its sleek brown body and black trail swirled up and down and around us, adding to the overall sense of well being. There were many mayflower bunches on the ground, but I saw no flowers. Yet they were blooming here and there in the valley below. Though it wouldn’t effect this dry mountainside greatly, I prayed for a good soaking rain on the coming weekend. In the previous week I had seen a number of vernal pools in the lowland woods with amphibian egg cases in danger of drying up, and some already bone dry. One good soak on Saturday might save millions from early annihilation, if it wasn’t too late already.

of Ossipee, who used to come up the Libby Trail on a four wheeler. He was quite the sociable gent, and good thing, seeing he welcomed well over a thousand visitors in a good season. As we sat eating lunch in the cool breeze, I recalled talking to him in the fire tower once about thunderstorms, which approached from the west. He would take shelter from electrical storms in the old ranger cabin, a couple hundred feet downhill the fire tower. Sitting in his swivel chair, he pointed west towards the Ossipee Range and the Bearcamp River valley to the north of it. “When a thunder storm comes around the corner of Mount Whittier, before it heads this way across Ossipee Lake I head down to the cabin,” said Libby with unusual brevity. In 2010, Libby passed away. The state has chosen not to operate the tower. We descended the stairs into warmth. The dog was ready. We headed down. It was nice to finally do the Dearborn Trail.

The porcupine was our halfway marker. After that, the top came quickly. Our canine companion didn’t like exposed heights, and curled up in the sun at the bottom of the fire tower. We climbed up the stairs from sun and warmth to a cold westerly breeze. Our jackets came out for lunch on the high platform. The view south over Province Lake and the low hill country was unobstructed. To the north between the trees, Mount Washington held on to some snow. The tall fire tower was unusual, in that it was first located on Cedar Mountain in Parsonsfield. It was dismantled and moved to Green Mountain in 1922. Its 47 foot height swayed in the wind too much, so it was lowered to 37 feet in 1977. In the 1950s, we climbed the high tower to visit the ranger. The last fire warden on Green Mountain was Rolland “Harry” Libby

‘The Old Country Fiddler’ to visit the Madison Library Thursday MADISON — The Friends of Madison Library will host a New Hampshire Humanities Council program, “The Old Country Fiddler; Charles Ross Taggart, Traveling Entertainer” on Thursday, April 26, at 7 p.m. Presented by fiddler Adam Boyce, this program will be held in the Madison Library’s Chick Room. After a short annual meeting of the Friends of Madison Library, Boyce will take the stage as Charles Ross Taggart. Taggart grew up in Topsham, Vt., and starting in 1895 performed in stage shows across the country for over 40 years. A fiddler, piano player, humorist, singer and ventriloquist, Taggart made recordings with the Victor, Edison, and Columbia companies and appeared in a talking movie six years before Al Jolson starred in “The Jazz Singer.” In his presentation, Adam Boyce portrays Taggart near the end of his career, c. 1936, sharing recollections on his life and career, with some live fiddling and humorous sketches interspersed in this living history program. Presenter Adam Boyce, a 10th gen-

eration Vermonter, is a fiddler, composer, piano player, contra dance prompter and square dance caller. He has been involved with nearly every aspect of fiddle contests in New England since 1994, including judge, piano backup, as well as competitor. He was the 2000 Vermont division champion at the Northeast Fiddlers contest in Barre, Vermont, and has placed in nearly every New England state. Adam has served in several locally elected offices, including town moderator. On occasion, he delivers dry rural wit and wisdom as a Yankee humorist for the Vermont Arts Council. The New Hampshire Humanities Council nurtures the joy of learning and inspires community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire. Learn more about the Council and its work at This program is free and open to the public. The presentation will be followed by homemade refreshments. For more information or for directions to the Madison Library, call the library at 367-8545.

Normally this time of year My first stop was the Ossipee River in the tributary streams around Lake Freedom. When I crossed the bridge on Winnipesauke are the hot ticket for Bill Thompson 153 I was shocked to see how low the river was. It doesn’t get much lower early spring fishing.

see if anyone was fishing from the docks and headed directly to Alton. In Alton there was only one lone boat trolling the bay. I pulled into the parking lot on the Merrymeeting only to find it empty of cars. An empty parking lot here can only mean one thing and that is it ain’t fishing well. Like the two previous stops the water level was pathetically low. I did park and walked along the bank up to the dam. There was water coming over, but not nearly enough to keep fish in the river. I headed back into Alton and up Route 11 to see if the conditions were any better at Ellacoya. The bridge and docks in Alton Bay were empty. There was not a single fisherman to be seen. I realize that it was a Monday, however, I can’t remember ever seeing no one fishing from that bridge during the first two week of April. Ellacoya proved to be no better then any of the other locations. The stream was just a trickle and there were no fishermen to be seen. I continued up the lake and headed over to Laconia. My destination was the Opechee Trading post. The Opechee Trading Post is one of the oldest tackle shops in New Hampshire founded by Mertin and Barbara Cotton in 1945. I often say that the North Country Angler is the oldest continuously operated “true” fly shop in the state, but you could make a case for the Opechee Trading Post. Without question Opechee is the oldest Orvis dealer in the state and continues to sell Orvis products to the present. The shop is owned today by Jim Makris and he continues the legacy of the Cotton’s. Jim, like myself, has a keen interest in old tackle and maintains a large selection of antique fishing and hunting paraphernalia for sale. I run into Jim from time to time at fishing shows and he has continually invited me to visit him and fish off his dock. Today I intended to take him up on his offer. When I arrived at the shop it was closed. Obviously a lot of small fly shops close on Monday’s during the winter months. Not only that, but two guys were already fishing from the dock. Turns out I knew one of them and so we chatted for a minute or two. One fellow had hook and landed a nice rainbow and the other had lost a nice salmon. The salmon was lost to a netting accident and the fellow who had muffed the net job was still smarting. The fellow who had lost the fish was gracious and had already forgiven his friend. In the course of our conversation I spotted a salmon rolling on the surface. I headed across the bridge; got into my waders and rigged up my rod. I waded out. The weather man might have been wrong about the showers, but he was dead on about the wind. The wind was with me most of the time, but when it turned it was nasty. I fished for a little over an hour and never had a touch or saw another fish. After a while I realized that I was cold and that the “fun part” was not living up to my expectations. I headed back to the truck unrigged and got out of my waders. As I headed out of the parking lot I turned the heater on full bore. I shouldn’t complain too much after all it was a day fishing and no matter what the conditions that’s hard to beat. This may be one of the poorest seasons I have ever seen for spring salmon. Who would have guessed that it would all be over less than 10 days from the start of the season on April 1? It is to early to tell, but the worry is that we may be in for a dry summer. Lets hope we see some rain in the coming days. See you on the river. Bill and Janet Thompson own North Country Angler in North Conway.

FRYEBURG — As part of the ongoing family entertainment series at Fryeburg Academy’s Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center located at 18 Bradley Street on the Campus of Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, Maine, the Theater at Monmouth will perform “The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship” for audiences of all ages on Friday, April 27, at 7 p.m. The Theater at Monmouth brings adaptations of classic literature to students across the state. Their mission is to help deepen understanding of, appreciation for and connection to classic literature

for learners of all ages. Last year’s performance of “The Reluctant Dragon” was so well received that the Leura Hill Eastman Center asked them back to perform “The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship.” Few people had faith in the Fool of the World, but he was determined to prove everyone wrong. When the czar declares he will marry his daughter to the man who brings him a flying ship, the Fool sets off on an adventure to change his life. Along the way he learns the power of believing in yourself, the value of friendship, and the importance of following

your dreams. Andrew Lang’s Russian tale was first published as part of his Yellow Fairy Book in 1894. Theater at Monmouth’s adaptation is based on the first English translation by Arthur Ransome published as a part of Old Peter’s Russian Tales in 1916. Tickets are $8 for adults, $4 for students (ages 3-18) and under 3 are free. They are available for purchase online at or by calling the Box Office at (207) 935-9232. Parking is free.

Debra Ballou at Corner House Inn Thursday SANDWICH — Debra Ballou, storyteller, writer, educator, and fellow traveler of the trails of life returns to the Corner House Inn on Thursday, April 26, to share stories from various cultures. Ballou’s wanderings lead her to fascinating places that provided life experiences in natural history and cultural history. Whether it’s from the peak of Mount Washington to the shores of Isle Madame off the coast of Cape Breton, from the glacier of Mount Marmalada in the Italian Alps to the canals of Venice, or from the fields, forests, lakes, and streams of New Hampshire to Mangrove Everglades of Florida, Debra looks for tales to tell. These adventures, among many others, lend fuel to the imagination of this Ecoteller as she

continuously looks for the story of nature and nature in story. For the past two decades Ballou has been telling stories to audiences of all ages incorporating folktales, fairy tales, Native American stories, original stories, personal adventures, and poems. Many times using musical instruments, singing, and/or audience participation to enhance the experience. She performs in the expected venues such as schools, libraries, nature centers, festivals, Elderhostel programs, children’s camps, etc. and the more unexpected places like a car dealership waiting room, the deck of a ship, and a workshop on small business finance. As a member of League for the Advancement of New England

Storytelling (LANES), she served for three years on the Board of Trustees including one year as President. Currently she serves as the contact person and facilitator for the Seacoast Storytellers Circle which is one of five Story Guilds in New Hampshire. Thursday storytelling dinners are held each week at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich from late October through May. Dinner begins at 6:30 p.m. and includes salad, entrée, dessert, coffee and glass of wine, along with great storytelling entertainment. The cost is $19.95 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

By Holiday Mathis have a process for decision-making. First you feel things through; then you think them through. Take it one step further, and visualize your way through. These three processes will produce magic results. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your method for measuring value differs from that of the others you’ll be dealing with today. Try to see things the way they do. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with them, but you’ll deal more effectively if you at least understand them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though you’d prefer to be even-tempered and experience a stable level of feeling throughout the day, there will be passionate fluctuations you just can’t avoid. You’ll be cleansed by these emotions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t have to put a positive spin on everything that unfolds. You choose to do so because you know it will allow you to see more options and to be pleasant company, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Heated exchanges are on the menu. You don’t want to dish it out, and you don’t want to get served. And yet you may still find yourself in the middle of the argument. Back away slowly. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 21). Your professional and personal lives intersect in interesting ways and will at times merge to increase your luck on both fronts. The next 10 weeks bring intense focus. Set concrete goals. You’ll travel to be with loved ones in June and July and will find adventure in your own town, too. Those you’ve taught will make you proud in August. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 3, 13, 39 and 16.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The one you didn’t appreciate will now get a little more of your attention. What could have been? That can be a painful question or an inspiring one, depending on your attitude. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a position to protect others from the harshness of the world, to shield loved ones from rejection or soften the hard edges of reality. You’ll succeed in this matter. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What happens to you is always far less important than what you take from the experience. Extrapolating meaning from your life is a highly personal choice. It means what you think it means, so think something good! CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a lot of good that can be said of being on autopilot. It gets you to the destination with little effort. The problem with it arises when you want to go somewhere other than where you’re programmed to go. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Success won’t happen overnight, but it will happen over night after night after night. A month of nights will bring you to a place you can be proud of. So keep making the effort. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Does it seem that things are getting simultaneously better and worse? Nothing can stay the same. You’ll be able to turn things in your favor, though. You’re the great improver of the zodiac, after all. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). However you feel, it’s an acceptable feeling. Furthermore, you won’t be able to move through the feelings until you first accept them for what they are. Your emotional intelligence will expand. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 21, 2012— Page 29

Today is Saturday, April 21, the 112th day of 2012. There are 254 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 21, 1962, the Century 21 Exposition, also known as the Seattle World’s Fair, opened. President John F. Kennedy spoke briefly to the event by telephone from Palm Springs, Fla., where he tapped a gold telegraph key to signal the official start of the six-month fair. On this date: In 1509, England’s King Henry VII died; he was succeeded by his 17-year-old son, Henry VIII. In 1649, the Maryland Toleration Act, which provided for freedom of worship for all Christians, was passed by the Maryland assembly. In 1789, John Adams was sworn in as the first vice president of the United States. In 1836, an army of Texans led by Sam Houston defeated the Mexicans at San Jacinto, assuring Texas independence. In 1910, author Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, died in Redding, Conn., at age 74. In 1918, Baron Manfred von Richthofen, the German ace known as the “Red Baron,” was killed in action during World War I. In 1930, a fire broke out inside the overcrowded Ohio Penitentiary in Columbus, killing 332 inmates. In 1955, the Jerome Lawrence-Robert Lee play “Inherit the Wind,” inspired by the Scopes trial of 1925, opened at the National Theatre in New York. In 1972, Apollo 16 astronauts John W. Young and Charles M. Duke Jr. explored the surface of the moon. In 1986, a rediscovered vault in Chicago’s Lexington Hotel that was linked to Al Capone was opened during a live TV special hosted by Geraldo Rivera; aside from a few bottles and a sign, the vault turned out to be empty. In 1992, Robert Alton Harris became the first person executed by the state of California in 25 years as he was put to death in the gas chamber for the 1978 murder of two teen-age boys, John Mayeski and Michael Baker. One year ago: President Barack Obama announced the Justice Department was assembling a team to “root out any cases of fraud or manipulation” in oil markets that might be contributing to $4 a gallon-plus gasoline prices. Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., announced he would step down amid a developing ethics probe while insisting he’d done nothing wrong. Japan sealed off a wide area around the radiation-spewing Fukushima power plant to prevent residents from sneaking back to homes they’d quickly evacuated. Jess Jackson, 81, founder of the KendallJackson winery, died in Geyerville, Calif. Today’s Birthdays: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is 86. Actress-comedian-writer Elaine May is 80. Actor Charles Grodin is 77. Singer-musician Iggy Pop is 65. Actress Patti LuPone is 63. Actor Tony Danza is 61. Actress Andie MacDowell is 54. Rock singer Robert Smith is 53. Rock musician Michael Timmins is 53. Actor John Cameron Mitchell is 49. Rapper Michael Franti is 46. Rock singer-musician Glen Hansard is 42. Comedian Nicole Sullivan is 42. Football player-turned-actor Brian White is 39. Rock musician David Brenner is 34. Actor James McAvoy is 33.

For Sale by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: A friend’s husband gave me a ride to the airport, and when I went to hug him goodbye as I have always done when we parted, he grabbed me by the arms and kissed me on the lips several times. I wasn’t expecting it, and I certainly hadn’t invited it. I made light of it, but it made me very uncomfortable and I don’t want to see him again. My problem is I don’t know how to end my friendship with his wife. I would never tell her, and I do not wish to have this standing between us, so I’d rather just end the friendship. How should I handle this? She occasionally contacts me for lunch dates. -- DISMAYED IN MANHATTAN DEAR DISMAYED: You’re lucky the wife contacts you for lunch dates only occasionally. It means she’s a casual friend, which will make disengaging easier. When she calls, all you need to do is tell her you have other plans. You do not have to mention that foremost among them is avoiding any future contact with either of them because of her husband. DEAR ABBY: I have been seeing “Larry” for six months, and from day one we both agreed that we do not want to be in a relationship. I’m 29 and he’s 34. But over time we have developed feelings for each other. Larry is recently divorced after 10 years of marriage. He tells me he doesn’t want to lose me, but it’s hard for him to commit for fear of being hurt. Larry talks to other women and goes out, while I have basically committed myself to him. He gets upset if I talk to another man. He says I’m his best friend and he’s afraid a relationship would change that. I don’t know what to do anymore. Neither one of us would be OK if the other started dating, but I’m sick of waiting for

him to make up his mind. Should I move on? -- IN LIMBO IN COLUMBUS, IND. DEAR IN LIMBO: Yes, you should. But not before telling Larry exactly why, because the arrangement you have right now is unfair to you. If you don’t, you and Larry could wind up being “best friends” forever and nothing more. DEAR ABBY: When my wife and I renewed our wedding vows after 25 years of marriage, I gave her a beautiful diamond band to thank her for our years together. I lost her 20 years later and put the ring aside, not knowing what to do with it. My son had been living with a lovely girl for a couple of years. They appeared to be a perfect match, so I gave him the ring and suggested he give it to her and propose. I looked forward to their happiness and perhaps some grandchildren. My son presented it to her, she accepted and they were married. Sadly, after three years she divorced him and they have gone their separate ways. Should I contact her and ask for the return of the ring? Abby, it’s not the money ($3,500). I wanted the ring to stay in the family, and she has opted out of our family. Please advise. -- NOT SURE IN NEW JERSEY DEAR NOT SURE: By all means contact your former daughter-in-law and ask if she’s willing to part with the ring. She may agree to give it to you or sell it to you if she still has it. However, if there has been animosity since the divorce, she may not feel inclined to be gracious -- so be prepared. Once your son gave the ring to her, it became her property to do with as she wished.

Garden Facts

UNH Cooperative Extension

Getting started in the garden CONWAY — The incredibly early arrival of springlike weather has certainly energized area gardeners. And rising food prices and a genuine interest in being more food self-sufficient is really peaking interest in home vegetable gardening according to Bill Lord of Carroll County Cooperative Extension. Proper soil preparation is an important first step according to Lord, with soil testing to determine lime and nutrient needs at the top of the list. A routine soil test provides the information needed to make appropriate lime and fertilizer applications. Soils should not be rototilled or spaded when too wet or too dry. To determine if the soil is too wet to work, Lord suggests you squeeze a small handful of soil in your fist. The soil will crumble into small clumps when the moisture is right. If the clump remains a solid ball, it is too wet to work. Memorial Day has long been the traditional vegetable garden planting time in the county, although some crops can go in earlier. Cold sensitive crops like tomatoes and peppers, squashes, pumpkins and melons and sweet corn perform best when we wait until late May or early June to plant. But

many crops like peas, carrots, beets and turnips, and greens including swiss chard and lettuce can be planted in early May. Broccoli will survive if planted in early May, but will yield larger heads if planting is delayed until mid to late May when temperatures are warmer. Crops like snap beans should be planted in succession plantings to insure production through the summer and fall. The first planting can go in in midMay and successive plantings can be made every two to three weeks to insure a continuous supply. For fact sheets on growing vegetables at home or information on soil testing through UNH, contact Carroll County Cooperative Extension, PO Box 1480, Conway, NH 03818 or call 447-3834. Bill Lord, will be giving a talk on gardening, particularly growing vegetables and berries, at the Kennett Middle School, Lecture Hall, 176 Main Street, Conway, Thursday, April 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Topics will include: location, soil, fertility, and pH. Additional topics include weed management, starting seeds, and when to plant seeds. All are welcome to attend this free talk.

CONCORD — With the early spring, people are getting outside and some are observing young animals. If you encounter wildlife, even young animals that appear to need help, please remember that the kindest — and safest — thing to do is to leave them alone and let nature take its course, say officials from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. Reports have already begun coming in to Fish and Game and local wildlife rehabilitators from people who have picked up young animals, often mistakenly thinking they are orphans. “Picking up fawns, baby raccoons or young animals is an error in judgment,” says Fish and Game Lt. Robert Bryant. “People think they’re doing a good deed, but they are often removing the animal from the care of its parents and exposing themselves to the risk of disease. What’s more, these actions may result in the animal having to be euthanized for rabies testing.” Young wild animals (including mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians) typically have their best chance of surviving when they are in their own natural environment, says Fish and Game Wildlife Biologist Kent Gustafson. What should you do if you find a young animal? “Give wildlife plenty of space and leave them alone and in the wild, where they belong,” he said. Gustafson explains that seeing a deer fawn alone, for example, does NOT mean that it is orphaned or that it needs your help; it is normal for a doe to leave her fawn alone while she goes off to feed. In many cases, the doe will not return until nightfall. “Fawns are not defenseless creatures. Their cryptic coloration, tendency to stay perfectly still and lack of scent are all adaptations that help them survive,” Gustafson said. Does are easy to detect because of their size and scent, so they generally keep a distance from their fawns, except during brief nursing bouts, so that predators don’t find them. If sympathetic people repeatedly visit a fawn, it can prolong the separation from the doe and delay important feeding. “This hands-off policy also applies to bear cubs and moose calves,” Gustafson continued. “It’s also worth noting that sows and cows (female bears and moose) can and do actively protect their young. In any case, if you’re lucky enough to see a deer fawn, bear cub, moose calf or other wild animal, count your blessings and leave the area.” Sadly, improper care of injured or orphaned wildlife often leads to their sickness or death. Remember — only qualified people with special rehabilitator permits, issued through N.H. Fish and Game, may take in and care for injured or orphaned wildlife. Unless you have rehabilitator credentials, it is illegal to have in your possession or take New Hampshire wildlife from the wild and keep it in captivity. For a list of licensed wildlife rehabilitators, go to wildlife_rehabbers.htm. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state’s fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats. Visit

Valley participates Caroll County Democrats focus in international on platform, civil rights April 25 book giveaway BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Volunteers in Mount Washington Valley on April 23 will be part of an international effort to give away half a million free books in one day on “World Book Night.” This past Monday, a small group of volunteers met at White Birch Books to discuss those upcoming plans. “Last year in the U.K., they gave away a million books on one day, so this year, the United States is getting involved. The intention is to give half a million books away to non-readers and light readers. Each giver has signed up as volunteers and picked from a list of books provided by publishers their favorites, and they will be explaining as they give the books away why these books are their favorites. Our local givers will head out Monday to places throughout the valley,” said Laura Lucy, proprietor of White Birch Books, which is serving as a local hub for [book givers.” It’s a widespread non-profit effort, says Lucy, all designed to share the love of reading. “Authors gave up royalties, publishers gave up books, printers printed for free, shippers shipped for free. We’re basically a hub spot for the givers to fan out from Monday night to give way books,” said Lucy. The local effort is part of a campaign that spans from Kodiak, Alaska, to Key West, Fla., in 5,000 towns and cities across America. Among those on hand as givers Monday at White Birch Books were Jesse Mosston of the Believe in Books Literacy Foundation, Mary Cronin of te Madison Library, and newly-elected Conway selectman Stacy Sand. Cronin said she would be going to the Dinner Bell in Conway Monday evening with her books, “Peace Like a River” by Leif Enger. Sand said she will be heading to the Gibson Center for Senior Services as well as Delaney’s Hole-in-the-Wall to hand out her current favorite book, “The Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold. Mosston is giving out “A Prayer for Owen Meany” by John Irving at J-Town Deli at noon Monday. Lucy said she and co-workers are giving out “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian” by Sherman Alexie in Eaton, Bartlett and North Conway as a store project. For more information, visit www.worldbooknight. org. or call White Birch Books at 356-3200.

CHOCORUA – Members of the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s Platform Committee are to be on hand to share information about and seek input for the party’s platform, that statement of belief and purpose that sets the tone for election campaigns, when Carroll County Democrats next meet, at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 25, at Runnells Hall. Also on the agenda is a discussion of pending and proposed legislation affecting civil rights in New Hampshire. Doors to Runnells Hall are open as of 6:30 p.m. for the early birds; Chairman Bob Bridgham gavels the proceedings to order at 7 p.m. This meeting offers Carroll County Democrats a singular opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns about the party’s platform and infl uence its content with members of the committee that writes the document. The platform will be put

before the membership at the state convention June 2, in Manchester, where delegates will have a final opportunity to amend it before voting to accept or reject it. Members of the county committee’s executive board will report on legislation affecting civil rights, notably bills affecting the status of voting rights, women’s rights, and marriage. Recently, an attempt to override a gubernatorial veto of a measure to rescind marriage rights for gay couples was defeated, but several measures limiting women’s rights have succeeded in the House, and the GOP leadership is pushing for restrictions on voting via vastly more stringent requirements for voter identification. Runnells Hall is part of the Chocorua Library situated on Deer Hill Road (Route 113) a few yards east of the intersection of Routes 16 and 113.

Smarty pants BY JASON ROBIE We are dealing with a far more educated consumer in today’s marketplace. There are studies that tell us 60 percent of the sales cycle is already complete by the time the customer makes that first phone call. This is both encouraging and horrifying as a business owner, and that includes our buyers and sellers. I am a research and data fiend. I’ve been told I tend to over-analyze things, but in the end I’m glad to have gathered as much information as possible and, hopefully, made an informed decision. This is how our society works now. We have seen it in the real estate world for a few years and it has made its way into nearly every level of commerce. I buy almost everything I own through an online shopping site (named after a river in South America). The main reason is they provide user reviews and recommendations. Jason Robie There is nothing like the collective knowledge of 500 people that have already purchased and utilized the product you in which you are interested. As real estate professionals, we try to make the transaction as smooth and painless as possible. We end up educating our clients on a myriad of topics since no two deals are ever the same. I’d like to explore a couple of the more popular questions we run into and see if I can offer some insights. Since the banks have snugged up their lending standards to more logical levels, we have seen an increase in questions related to the location of a property on a private road. If you were reading along this past fall and winter, you know my friends lost out on a house solely because of this hiccup. The main point of contention is the actual maintenance of the road. Because we live in a state where snow is most always a factor (no comments on this year, please) the lending company wants to be sure the owners will have year-round access to the property. This assumes, of course, it will be a permanent “owner-occupied” property. If the buyers are not dealing with financing or it is simply a summer cottage or vacation home, the rules significantly change. If there is nothing in writing that states how the road will be maintained, the banks will likely be unable to approve the loan. They want to ensure the new owners will have ongoing access to their property. This can easily be rectified with a very simple document. When I sold my home I met with my neighbor who shares the driveway or “road” with me and we crafted a “road maintenance agreement.” Because he does not have a house on his land yet, we agreed to place the burden of maintenance on my side of the road. It also explained that once a home is built on his lot, the maintenance would be shared equally between the two parties. We took the extra step of recording this with the county. Should the new owners decide to sell the home or once my neighbor sells his lot, this document will already be in place and this hurdle will not cause any further hiccups for future transactions. There is still a pile of concerns surrounding this issue. What if someone on the road refuses see ROBIE page 42

to sign the agreement? What if a tree falls on the road and the properties farther down the road cannot access their homes? Who pays to have the tree removed? Are there liability issues if there is a car accident on the road? If the tree falls in the road, did anybody hear it? I’m sure this list could continue forever. I had a nice conversation with a real estate attorney friend of mine and he offered up his favorite answer to all of these questions: “It depends.” There are so many variables to take into account for each of these that a single answer or article is not nearly inclusive enough. Attorneys will call on both statute and case law that provide a base from which to work. Then all the factors for your specific scenario come into play. One of the other popular questions we get that also utilizes that nebulous “it depends” answer has to do with heat and other utilities. Providing a buyer with the previous owner’s (or tenant’s) utility usage values is really a subjective exercise. It is important to ask the buyers how they will be using the property (full time/vacation) and have a good understanding of the seller’s current usage. Since I started working out of my home office, my gas and electric usage jumped way above the levels they were when I was out of the house all day. Lights, electronics, heat and even air conditioning play a significant role in my utility bills and would vary greatly from someone using the home for weekends only or even someone who works outside of the home. Last but not least, we are going to circle back around to our old friend financing. As we have mentioned, banks have now resorted to exorbitant requirements for home loans such as verifiable

employment and a decent credit score. The nerve! One might argue that if a bank is not willing to lend someone money, nobody else should take that risk either. While this may be true, there are other reasons that owners might be interested in financing the deal themselves. When I bought the land I built my house on, the seller provided the financing. This not only limited the down payment I needed to come up with but also simplified the purchasing process overall. The seller had an attorney draw up the necessary mortgage papers and enjoyed the benefit of collecting the associated interest payments for the life of the loan. This worked well for them since they did not need the immediate influx of cash and were able to make a little extra money on the transaction. The lesson here is not to be afraid to explore other options for homeownership. My friends that lost that opportunity last year are still pressing forward and looking for other creative ways to purchase a home. Being selfemployed for less than two years will force me to seek alternative financing options this summer as I begin my property search. There are various options available to get you into that home you’ve been dreaming out. Rentto-own, owner financing and even buying with another person or family are all viable solutions. The key is to ask the question and keep exploring the possibilities. “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create.” — Albert Einstein.

Time to bring springtime indoors Page 44 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 21, 2012

BY KELLY BERNIER Now that spring has arrived, most of us are looking for ways to give our homes a little freshening up. We’re ready for some decluttering and maybe a couple of home projects that we have been thinking about since the holidays. Something about spring, wherever we live, always gives us a nudge to shake things up a little. And even if budgets are tight, you can still do a little decorating to make an impact. Here are 10 tips to freshen and for put a little spring into your home. • Don’t try to redo the entire house but pick one room and give it a makeover. Consider the family room or your bedroom. Make changes that you have been thinking about. Spend some time and plan it out like a decorator. Find

lectibles? Put some away and rotate them back in the fall. • Give the kitchen a face-lift — not a remodel but some small changes that will make you love your kitchen again. Paint is your best friend when you want to update your kitchen inexpensively. Painting over your old, worn cabinets gives the whole kitchen an instant facelift. Use pretty, colorful fabric wherever you can. Target, Wal-Mart, Pier 1, Christmas Tree Stores, Home Goods, etc. all have beautiful selections of table linens. Tablecloths, placemats, napkins, chair pads and runners. Bring in a new colorful rug! Even a couple new kitchen towels will perk up the room. • Bedroom love.

photos in magazines or on the internet that you love and duplicate the look. • Freshen up your accessories. Pillows and accessories are the easiest ways to bring a fresh new look into the room. Try some pops of that Tangerine Tango that you have heard so much about. Pantone’s Color of the Year is cheerful and bright. Try new throw pillows, a throw, picture frames. It goes with almost anything when used as an accent and is a very happy color! • Say goodbye to clutter. Spring is the perfect time to get rid of anything that you don’t love. Go room by room and drawer by drawer. Closet by closet and shelf by shelf. I find that tackling one room at a time works best. Don’t aim for perfection. Just try to make a dent. And don’t forget to dump all of the piles of magazines that you have not read in the past two years. Too many col-

Existing-home sales decline in March but inventory down, prices stabilizing WASHINGTON – Existing-home sales were down in March but continue to outpace year-ago levels, while inventory tightened and home prices are showing further signs of stabilizing, according to the National Association of Realtors. Total existing-home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, declined 2.6 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.48 million in March from an upwardly revised 4.60 million in February, but are 5.2 percent above the 4.26 million-unit pace in March 2011.

Wouldn’t you love to smile each time you walk in your room? Spring is the perfect time of year to purchase new linens. Gorgeous comforters and duvets in beautiful colors. Sheets. Throw pillows. A quilt in an accent color. And two new lamps. Maybe a new fabric headboard in an accent color. • Let the sun shine in. Maybe it is time to take down the drapes that are faded and looking a little outdated and switch to blinds or shades. Or make some window cornices. There are great instructions online and you can splurge on some beautiful fabric with the dollars you will save by making the cornices. Or maybe you do not need any window treatments at all! The look now is open and casual. • Freshen up with paint. You don’t need to paint the entire house, but just the entry or family room, for example. Try something different. If your furnishings are neutral, try bringing more color onto your walls. Benjamin Moore’s color of the year Wyeth Blue HC-143 is just one example of beautiful colors to choose from to give your room an update. • Give your bath a spa makeover. Give it some fresh paint from Ben-

economist, said the recovery is in the process of settling into a higher level of home sales. “The recovery is happening though not at a breakout pace, but we have seen nine consecutive months of year-over-year sales increases,” he said. “Existing-home sales are moving up and down in a fairly narrow range that is well above the level of activity during the first half of last year. With job growth, low interest rates, bargain home prices and an improving economy, the pent-up demand is coming to market and we expect housing to be notably better this year.”

Total housing inventory at the end of March declined 1.3 percent to 2.37 million existing homes available for sale, which represents a 6.3month supply at the current sales pace, the same as in February. Listed inventory is 21.8 percent below a year ago and well below the record of 4.04 million in July 2007. “We were expecting a seasonal increase in home listings, but a lack of inventory has suddenly become an issue in several markets with not enough homes for sale in relation to buyer interest,” Yun said. “Home sales could be held back because of supply factors and not by demand – we’re already seeing this in the Western states and in South Florida.” The national median existing-home price for all housing types was $163,800 in March, up 2.5 percent from March 2011. Distressed homes – foreclosures and short sales sold at deep discounts – accounted for 29 percent of March sales (18 percent were foreclosures and 11 percent were short sales), compared with 34 percent in February and 40 percent in March 2011. Foreclosures typically sold for an average 19 percent below market price in March, while short sales were discounted 16 percent. National Association of Realtors’ president Moe Veissi, broker-owner of Veissi & Associates Inc., in Miami, said buyer traffic is up. “Our members are

reporting an increase in foot traffic from a year ago, but more importantly, home shoppers this year are much more serious about finding the right home and making an offer,” he said. “Stabilizing home prices and historically favorable affordability conditions are giving buyers more confidence, and Realtors® have become more optimistic since the beginning of the year from the positive shift in buyer patterns.” According to Freddie Mac, the national average commitment rate for a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mortgage was 3.95 percent in March, up from a record low 3.89 percent in February; the rate was 4.84 percent in March 2011; recordkeeping began in 1971. All-cash sales slipped to 32 percent of transactions in March from 33 percent in February; they were 35 percent in March 2011. Investors account for the bulk of cash transactions. Investors purchased 21 percent of homes in March, down from 23 percent in February and 22 percent in March 2011. First-time buyers accounted for 33 percent of transactions in March; they were 32 percent in February and 33 percent in March 2011. Single-family home sales declined 2.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 3.97 million in March from 4.07 million in February, but are 5.9 percent above the 3.75 million-unit pace a year ago. The median existing single-family home price was $163,600 in March, up 1.9 per-

cent from March 2011. Existing condominium and co-op sales fell 3.8 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 510,000 in March from 530,000 in February, and are unchanged from March 2011. The median existing condo price was $165,200 in March, which is 7.1 percent above a year ago. Regionally, existing-home sales in the Northeast declined 1.7 percent to an annual level of 580,000 in March but are 5.5 percent higher than a year ago. The median price in the Northeast was $228,300, down 1.9 percent from March 2011. Existing-home sales in the Midwest were unchanged in March at a pace of 1.02 million but are 15.9 percent above March 2011. The median price in the Midwest was $132,800, up 5.2 percent from a year ago. In the South, existing-home sales slipped 1.1 percent to an annual level of 1.75 million in March but are 3.6 percent higher than a year ago. The median price in the South was $146,500, up 6.2 percent from March 2011. Existing-home sales in the West fell 7.4 percent to an annual pace of 1.13 million in March and are 0.9 percent below March 2011. The median price in the West was $198,300, up 1.6 percent from a year ago. The National Association of Realtors is America’s largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Builders want Congress to simplify tax code WASHINGTON — The National Association of Home Builders this week called on Congress to simplify the tax code as part of a comprehensive tax reform effort in order to help small businesses to continue to serve as an engine of economic growth. Testifying on behalf of National Association of Home Builders before the House Small Business Committee, Maryland home builder Marty Mitchell said that given the huge complexities in tax law, today’s complicated federal tax system acts as a burden and hindrance on small businesses, which serve as the backbone of the economy. “The home building community supports simplifying the tax code as part of a comprehensive tax reform process,” said Mitchell. “Such an effort should only occur after a thoughtful and deliberate vetting process that examines proposed changes, necessary transition rules and economic impacts.” Most small businesses, including the vast majority in the residential construction sector, are organized as pass-thru entities and therefore report and pay individual tax rates on their net business income. Thus, for small businesses, which traditionally serve as the nation’s foremost job creators, individual income tax rates are business tax rates. “Therefore, NAHB strongly supports extending the 2001 and 2003 income tax cuts now scheduled to expire at the end of 2012 in order to improve the business environment in this country,” said Mitchell. “We need permanency in the tax code and certainty for small businesses.”

TAMWORTH – Bearcamp River frontage comes with this farmhouse. Great location for an in-home business from the attached 3 story barn with frontage on major East/ West highway. Ideal spot for an antique shop, garden center, or whatever you have in mind. $139,900 (4074502)

Absent congressional action, the top marginal tax rate will jump from 35 percent to 39.6 percent along with rate increases at the lower brackets. National Association of Home Builders is also urging lawmakers to extend the current 15 percent rate on dividends and capital gains, which is important to small business owners. A higher capital gains tax rate could also affect the multifamily sector, as the sale of apartment buildings can give rise to capital gains as part of the development and operation process. “As many home building companies are familyowned like mine, it is also important that the present law estate tax rate rules also be extended or the tax itself eliminated,” said Mitchell. He also stressed that it is critical that the mortgage interest deduction, which has been part of the tax system since 1913 and plays an indispensible role in promoting homeownership, should not be curtailed or eliminated as part of any tax reform effort.
