(NY Times) — Rabbi Tuvia Geffen, of blessed memory, more than 40 years after his death. No, we come to honor his least likely yet most enduring contribution to the Jewish people and his adopted nation: kosher-for-Passover Coca-Cola. Yes, observant Jews of today, searching supermarket counters for those bottles with the telltale yellow cap bearing the Orthodox Union’s certification, and yes, Coke die-hards of any or no religion who seek out those same bottles for the throwback flavor of canesugar Coke, you owe it all to Rabbi Tuvia Geffen. He of the long beard and wire-rim glasses and Yiddishinflected English, a man by all outward appearances belonging to the Old World, he was the person who by geographical coincidence and unexpected perspicacity adapted Coca-Cola’s secret formula to make the iconic soft drink kosher in one version for Passover and in another for the rest of the year. To this day, his 1935 rabbinical ruling, known in Hebrew as a teshuva, remains the standard. That ruling, in turn, did more than solve a dietary dilemma. A generation after Frank’s lynching, a decade after Congress barred the Golden Door, amid the early stages of Hitler’s genocide, kosher Coke formed a powerful symbol of American Jewry’s place in the mainstream.

Samir Sabry, the Egyptian lawyer who filed the lawsuit, argued that the presence of Mr. Mubarak’s name on buildings and streets at a time when the former president and his family were widely seen as symbols of corruption and tyranny was a provocation to national sentiment. “Why should his name continue to be there?” Mr. Sabry said. “You put people’s names up to honor them. Now what are we honoring him for?”

Security forces kill dozens in uprisings around Syria BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Security forces in Syria met thousands of demonstrators with live ammunition after noon prayers on Friday, killing at least 73 people in the bloodiest day of the five-week-old Syrian uprising, according to protesters, witnesses and accounts on social networking sites. From the Mediterranean coast and Kurdish east to the steppe of the Houran in southern Syria, protesters gathered in at least 20 towns and cities, including the out-

skirts of the capital, Damascus. The breadth of the protests — and people’s willingness to defy security forces who deployed en masse — painted a tableau of turmoil in one of the Arab world’s most repressive countries. In scenes unprecedented only weeks ago, protesters tore down pictures of President Bashar al-Assad and toppled statues of his father, Hafez, in two towns on the capital’s outskirts, according to witnesses and video footage.

Coast Guard cites many lapses in sinking of deepwater oil rig WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The Coast Guard reported Friday that poor maintenance, inadequate training and lax safety at Transocean contributed to the lethal explosion and sinking of the company’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig a year ago. The Coast Guard’s 288-page study declared that the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the mobile offshore drilling rig’s flag state, had failed in its regulatory duties. The study faulted the Coast Guard itself for failing to ensure that complex offshore drilling units registered in foreign nations but operating in United States waters were properly maintained and inspected. “Although the events leading to the sinking of Deepwater Horizon were set into motion by the failure to prevent a well blowout,” the report states, “the investigation revealed numerous systems deficiencies, and acts and omissions by Transocean and its Deepwater Horizon crew that had an adverse impact on the ability to prevent or limit the magnitude of the disaster.”

The court seemed to agree. Now, the names, photographs and pictures of Mr. Mubarak and his wife, Suzanne, will be removed “from all squares, streets, schools, associations, libraries and all entities in Egypt.” In his ruling, Judge Muhammad Hassan Omar reasoned that their presence resulted in “tremendous harm and continuous suffering” to the families of those who died in the three weeks of protests that led to Mr. Mubarak’s resignation.

CAIRO (NY Times) — As part of the general mood here to expunge everything reminiscent of former President Hosni Mubarak, an Egyptian court on Thursday ordered the removal of his name and likeness from all public institutions. The order comes a week after Mr. Mubarak was remanded for interrogation, along with his two sons, to answer accusations of financial corruption and ordering the killing of protesters.

Public sounds off on parental notification THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 23, 2011— Page 3


Parents have a natural right to oversee their child’s safety and health, said supporters of a bill requiring parents to be notified 48 hours before their daughter has an abortion. The Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday held a public hearing on House Bill 329 (click to view text and status), which would require a parent or guardian be notified before a minor has an abortion, but allows a teenager to go to court -- rather than her parents -- for permission. The proposed legislation also allows a doctor to perform an abortion on a minor in a medical emergency, a needed provision, according to the U.S. Supreme Court. The prime sponsor of the bill, Rep. Kathleen Souza, R-Manchester, said it was carefully crafted to address issues raised by the U.S. Supreme

Court when a similar 2003 bill was challenged. The U.S. Supreme court struck down the 2003 law because it did not protect the health of young women. The law was repealed by lawmakers in 2007 and never enforced. “We did this with a lot of expert advice to make sure it does comply with the Supreme Court’s decision,” Souza said. Supporters argued the bill restores the rights of parents to be involved in their children’s decisions and to be informed before such a serious medical procedure is performed on their daughter. Ellen Kolb of Cornerstone Policy Research, said under the constitution, parents have the “liberty to rear their children without government interference expect where absolutely necessary.” She said the bill is both respectful of families and limited gov-

ernment. “That is how we do it in New Hampshire,” Kolb said. But opponents of the bill say it would needlessly put the lives and health of young women at risk and does nothing to address the core problem of unintended pregnancy. “Notification mandates create delays and intimidating procedures when what young women need is health care and counseling from quality, licensed health care providers right here in New Hampshire,” said Pilar Olivo, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice NH. “We oppose HB 329 because it puts the health and safety of young women at risk. This bill does nothing to prevent unintended pregnancies. It won’t reduce the number of abortions and no law can fix communication problems in dysfunctional families. The bill requires notice -- but not consent -- of parents 48 hours before an abortion is performed on girls up

to age 18. A teenager may go to court instead. The judge would have to find the young woman is mature enough to reach a decision on her own. If the girl is not able to make a mature decision, the judge can allow an abortion if it is in her best interests. Rep. Susan DeLemus, R-Rochester, told the committee, “I actually aborted a baby. I killed my own child. It was the wrong decision. I was not a minor at the time, but I live with it every day.” She said young women are influenced and encouraged to have an abortion, and their parents should know what is happening. DeLemus said she had medical complications after her abortion that required further treatment. “Isn’t that a good enough reason why parents should be involved, why they should be part of the decision-making process,” she said.

Locals go the distance in the 2011 Boston Marathon

Winner Mutai runs a staggering 4:42 per mile pace BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Closed Easter Sunday, April 24

Several local runners put their best foot forward on Monday competing in the 115th running of the Boston Marathon which featured a record-setting performance. Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot set a Boston course record of 2:05:52 last year. Had he run that time Monday, he would have placed fifth. Kenyan Geoffrey Mutai took the laurel wreath in a scarcely believable time of 2:03:02, a mark that may stand for awhile. Mutai, 29, covered the 26.2 miles at an average pace of 4:42 per mile. He ran the opening 5K in 14:43; 10K in 29:08; 15K in 43:48; 20K in 58:45; half marathon in 1:01:58; 25K in 1:13:16; 30K in 1:28:24; 35K in 1:42:35; and 40K in 1:56:48. Rounding out the top three were Moses Mosop, of Kenya, second, 2:03:06; and Gebregziabher Gebremariam, of Ethiopia, third, 2:04:53.

Saturday, April 16 * On the 72nd anniversary — to the day — of then 19-year-old Austrian Toni Matt's legendary schuss of the Tuckerman Ravine headwall in the 1939 Inferno, elite athletes will compete today in the 2011 Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon. * "Over the Headwall" is a rite of spring in Tuckerman Ravine. It's also the name of a book published by the New England Ski Museum in 1999.

Tele-Talk What more can individuals and communities do to make the Earth greener? Earth Day was Friday, and citizens and communities continue to do their part — all year long — to make the world "greener." Locally, one "huge environmental accomplishment," as consultant Bill Hounsell put it, is the agreement to connect the North Conway and Conway Village sewer systems. This will go a long way toward eliminating wastewater discharge into the Saco River. Land conservation is another big part of the greener picture, and the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust recently acquired a 99-acre tract on Foss Mountain and turned the property over to the town of Eaton. And daily, people are saving the planet in smaller ways such as the planting of trees and the recycling of trash and turning off their cars when they dash into the convenience store. This week's Tele-Talk: What more can individuals and communities do to make the Earth greener? Call 733-5822 Saturday and Sunday and leave your comments on our machine. You may fax your responses to 356-8360 or e-mail them to Comments can also be posted on The Conway Daily Sun's Facebook page. Results will be published Tuesday.

Tuesday, April 19 * A Conway man is facing multiple felony charges and more than a dozen charges overall for allegedly stealing a car, racing through Conway Village and then trying to evade police on Sunday. • A Brazilian man accused of attempted murder and assault in Bartlett in 2009 pleads not guilty at his arraignment in Carroll County Superior Court, and there is a chance the judge will throw the case out for a second time. * Barry Ennis believes Ossipee selectmen owe him a lot of money because they have been taxing him on a home that's actually in Tuftonboro where the taxes are much lower. * Now that voters have given the go-ahead, the town is hoping to have work done on the garage before fall. The $230,000 the voters approved will be used to put on a new sloped roof and to insulate the building. * The Penguin store in North Conway Village is burglarized. Nothing was stolen, but thousands of dollars of inventory was destroyed. * Team Lake Placid wins the team title in the Tuckerman Inferno Pentathlon. Wednesday, April 20 * The legislature is reshuffling the state court system, leading to changes at the local courthouse, as well as questions. * Jean Huntoon is retiring after 37 years as clerk of Conway District Court. * The newest member of the Conway School Board is eager to roll up his sleeves and get to work. John Skelton was elected to a three-year seat last week.

Off the Wall The following are some of the comments posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page this week: Regarding a police report that a person went into Dairy Queen to pick up a job application, and then stole money from the tip jar on the counter. “Safe to say they aren’t getting the job, huh?” — Jennifer O’Rourke Matthews “Desperate people do desperate things. I think it is sad. Hope the tips were worth a job.” — Michelle Hurteau “And this is what passes for news in Conway in April?” — Tom Ferreira Should Conway selectmen be allowed to vote on the budgets of departments if they do paid work for those departments? “I don’t see why not. They are citizens too.” — Nora Smith-Price “No they shouldn’t. It’s called a conflict of interest.” — Ken Martin “My husband is a selectman in our town (in Maine) but also works at the transfer station. Although he feels free to give his thoughts and opinions about funding for the transfer station, he always recuses himself from the actual voting on those issues.” Sherri Moore “As a former selectman, I can tell you that it is a conflict of interest.” — Jim Reichert

Local students are among those who raised money for the worldwide Pennies for Peace program to build schools in rural Afghanistan and Pakistan, but a 60 Minutes investigation raises questions about how the money was spent “At least it’s lesson learned for both parties. Check out the organization before funding.” — Brandy Hewitt “Maybe they should consider ‘Pennies for Peers?’ Some of those kids who receive free lunch look forward to it as it is their only nutritious meal of the day.” — MJ Cormier Britton “I think all school-based fund-raising in the valley should benefit the valley. Most of us haven’t won the lottery or own a multi-million dollar company and are struggling to make ends meet. There are plenty of worthy charities here in the valley that need help like the food pantry and such.” — Dawn James “I think the children can know that their money did do some good, even if it’s not as much as people were originally led to believe. I agree, though, that more efforts should be made for these kids to be helping people in our own community. Teach them about helping each other, about volunteering in your community. The foreign efforts are good, but helping those close to you I think means even more.” — Jennifer O’Rourke Matthews

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 23, 2011— Page 9


It was all about slavery In the penultimate paragraph of perhaps the second-greatest speech ever delivered on American soil, Abraham Lincoln set forth the reason the nation was engaged in a great Civil War. "One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the Southern part of it," Lincoln said in his second inaugural address. "These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war." That's pretty clear: The Civil War was fought because of slavery. So if that were so evident at noon on March 4, 1865, why has there been such controversy for a century and a half over the real cause of the Civil War? That is a far more difficult question. For reasons economic, social, political and historical, both sides in the Civil War have portrayed the struggle as one over states' rights, or the size of government or the economic destiny of the country. Slavery was the cause that dared not speak its name. These other issues were factors, to be sure. But they all grew out of slavery and the great divide that slavery created — first between black and white, then between landowner and laborer, next between North and South, finally between the Union and the Confederacy. Strains of these struggles and these divides still mark us. Perhaps they will persist longer than Lincoln's prescription, when he suggested later in that splendid inauguration paragraph that the fighting would last "until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's 250 years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword." But we cannot erase those divisions until we face, forthrightly and courageously, the issue that seems so obvious 150 years later and that still seems so difficult to confront. Slavery, and not economic and political independence, was at the center of the war. To those who deny it, consider this question: Would there have been a civil war on American soil if for some reason slavery were not planted on this continent along with tobacco and cotton? "When you talk to people around the country and ask them the causes of the Civil War, you get the same answers you would have gotten in 1861," says Andrew E. Masich, president of Pittsburgh's Heinz History Center. "Some white people in the South think it was a war to protect their homeland and states' rights. Some blacks can't believe the war was about slavery because they don't believe white people would fight for them. And in the North there are the Unionists, who think the war was fought to preserve the country. There's still no agreement on the root causes of the Civil War." In truth, it is possible to search the remarks of Abraham Lincoln and to find in them multiple causes of the Civil War. He began his presidency hoping to restrict the spread of slavery. Then he struggled to preserve the Union. Only later did he decide the fight was about freedom. And by freedom, he meant freedom for all, a broad freedom

as envisioned in the Declaration of Independence but — and here is where Lincoln charted new territory — applied to all Americans, white and black. In the greatest speech ever delivered on American soil, Lincoln spoke of "unfinished work," and he was not talking only about the task of winning the war. He was speaking, too, of winning that broader definition of freedom. That is what he meant by the phrase "new birth of freedom." And his opening, speaking of what happened fourscore and seven years earlier — in 1776 — makes it clear that he is taking the Declaration of Independence and grafting it onto the American Constitution, or at least onto the American conscience, with its timeless celebration of the Enlightenment principle that "all men are created equal." But even the American Constitution was marked by slavery. The specter haunting the Constitutional Convention, along with the fecklessness of the doomed Articles of Confederation, was slavery. The founding fathers did many things, but they punted on slavery, leaving it to a future generation to settle. That future generation dealt with it by fighting over the Missouri Compromise and the Kansas-Nebraska Act and then fighting the Civil War. "Race was a central factor in the nation until the Civil War, through the Civil War and beyond the Civil War," Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., the Illinois Democrat who has proposed a national commission to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, said in an interview. "There never has been a moment that slavery and race was not a factor, and yet both sides were able to subvert the issue of race and not deal with the role of slavery in the war." During the war, the primacy of slavery was incontrovertible. In its commentary on the firing on Fort Sumter, the Chicago Tribune said "that barbarous institution" was "the cause of the rebellion which months of effort has ripened into the bloody strife this day commenced." Frederick Douglass said at the war's start that the cessation of slavery should be the price of secession from the Union. We have to face this issue not only to get our past right. We also have to answer it to get our future right. "The past," Harvard historian Niall Ferguson has written, "is our only reliable guide to the present and to the multiple futures that lie before us, only one of which will actually happen." Understand slavery and you understand the Civil War. Understand the Civil War and you understand America. The New Freedom, the New Deal, the great prosperity that followed World War II, the youth and women's movements of the 1960s, the Reagan Revolution — they're all important. But not one of them defines us the way the Civil War did, and does. That's why the 150th anniversary of the Civil War is not only a commemoration. It also is an opportunity.

It’s not about the deficit? The hell it isn’t To the editor: Mr. Dave Van Note wrote a thoughtful piece the other day in The Conway Daily Sun that requires some perspective on the fiscal matters that face our nation. He starts his letter about our present fiscal crisis “It’s not about the deficit.” Stop right there! The hell it isn’t! We’ve had years of deficit spending that have added up to national debt of trillions of dollars. Our current President, in line with his ineptitude and lack of any experience has only accelerated our deficit spending. At some point our creditors have to ask, “When are you paying it back?” This isn’t unlike a business owner who instead of running a profitable business merely goes to the bank over and over again to borrow more and more money to keep operating. At some point the bank is going to call the loan and foreclose. President George W. Bush set a record by adding $3.2 trillion to the national debt over the course of his eight years in office when the economy was booming. But Barack Obama has already beaten that record with $4.4 trillion in just his first three years in office with an anemic (at best) economy. The “Stimulus Package” was touted by Mr. Obama failed to stimulate much of anything and further raised the debt.

So how does the debt impact John Q. Public walking the streets of Conway? As dollars are flooded throughout the world they are diluted in value. Since oil is priced in dollars a weakening dollar means he’ll pay more for gasoline. But then I said John Q. Public was walking so that’s a not a good example. OK, so maybe he wants to buy a car. Foreign made cars will cost more, interest rates will rise and he will probably end up paying more in taxes. His standard of living will fall. To make matters worse he’ll have a pocket full of worthless dollars thanks to that hidden tax called inflation brought on by over worked government printing presses churning out debased currency. So as we examine President Obama’s political playbook, what has increasing taxes, harassing businesses, and pandering to unions ever wrought? In the short run, it got politicians re-elected. In the long-run, it reduced thriving cities like Detroit to an economic disaster area, whose population was cut in half, as its most productive citizens and industries fled. So I ask you as the silly season or Presidential politics approaches, can we really afford another four years of Obama? Daniel W. Roberts East Conway

Straughan family rebuilding six months after fire BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — Spring is the season of renewal, and that's true in more ways than one for the Straughan family, their Agape Ministries, and a vacant plaza on Route 16. Kevin and Janna Straughan founded Agape Ministries, a nonprofit food pantry and thrift shop, which operates out of Ossipee Valley Bible Church's property. Six months ago, a fire ripped through the Straughan family home and farm, killing their livestock and a pet. Since the fire, there have been several developments the Straughans are pleased to announce. The first announcement is that Agape Ministries has a new location. After renovations are complete, Agape Ministries will be located at Pine Hill Plaza, which is across from the Pizza Barn on Route 16. About two years ago, a fire severely damaged that plaza. Kevin Straughan, board president, said Agape Ministries needed more space than the church could provide. The goal is to have the ministry up and running as soon possible. But the public's help is needed to reno-

vate the building. Kevin says the building is a "great The food pantry is the largest in investment" because it has plenty of Carroll County.

Its proceeds are also used to keep the food pantry going. “In these tight economic times, our donations are way off, as I imagine all non-profits are,” said Kevin. “Right now people are not feeling a stigma about shopping at a thrift store. In fact, it’s become the new cool because you can get some really good bargains. The last couple of years had we not had that thrift store helping, I don’t know how the ministry would still be in action.” The thrift store can’t sell children’s toys because of liability concerns. So, the Straughans give toys away at the food pantry. The Straughans also have to contend with getting their business operating. Once the farm is running they can spend more t;ime on Agape Ministries. Prior to the fire, Straughans had been living in the same magenta house, on Route 16B, for about 15 years. In 2004, they officially opened Agape Homestead Farm LLC on their property but they had been farming there since 1997. see next page

When the fire struck on Oct. 14, 2010, the farm lost 14 of 20 goats, 15 sheep and lambs, 70 chicks, 50 laying hens and a bull calf. The family also lost a cat. Agape Homestead Farm is the smallest goat dairy in the state. Now, the Straughans are also happy to report that they have a new home and enough property to restart the farm. And how they got it is a rather remarkable story. "It was really interesting, it's what we call a God incident," said Janna. She explained that the previous occupants (who were friends and neighbors before the fire) were hoping to sell the home so that they could be come missionaries in Haiti. "They left early on Wednesday morning and the fire was on a Thursday," said Janna. Within a short time, the Straughans realized that neighbors' home would suit their needs. They closed on it in mid December. Janna said that their foster and adopted children have been

amazingly resilient despite all the trauma. The property around the home, an antique cape, is connected to the Straughans' land. The home contains a shop area, which the Straughans will convert into a farm store. The Straughans will build a commercial kitchen into the farm stand so that other farmers will be able rent it out to do canning, preserving, and processing. "It will make more sustainable agriculture in the area," said Janna. They are hoping to open the farm by early May. They will have chicken, pork, milk, jams, jellies and such. Once the farm gets going again, the Straughans will be able to concentrate more fully on the food pantry and thrift store. They hope to have the thrift store going again by summer's end at the latest. Because of the natural reproductive cycle of goats, the Straughans had to start quickly if they wanted to get the goat dairy going by May. In a stroke of good fortune, Janna

found a flyer from a company that sold mini barns. The mini barn was exactly what the Straughans needed. The mini barn came complete with all the hardware they would need to begin. The mini barn was installed in January, which met the Straughans' deadline of opening by early May. The mini barn arrived in in three pieces. The Straughans found it to be a striking contrast that a crane was putting the mini barn pieces together as other machinery nearby tore down their old barn. The barn was full with 28 goats within a week. Six survived the fire. Eight of the goats were originally from the Straughans' farm. The goat's former owner purchased them from the Straughans. But in January, that farmer was looking for a way out of the goat business. "She called us and said, 'Would you like your goats back?'" said Straughan quoting the farmer. Other animals were donated. The farm now has nine lambs, 13 sheep

and some chickens. Although the Straughans and their foster and adopted children seem to have made remarkable progress, Kevin doesn't like to say they have made a recovery. "It's not a good word to say recovery because there is still daily reminders of what you don't have. I don't know if anyone who has been through this can ever fully recover. I think we move on. But I don't know if we recover." Janna said although they had good insurance, it didn't cover everything. All the donations and benefits were extremely helpful in keeping the family afloat. Without the support, the Straughans would have had no income or means of support. They noted that the Straughan Family Fire Fund still exists at Citizens Bank. The fund can be found online at straughanfirefund. "The response was tremendous," said Kevin. The Straughans can be reached at 539-4456 or 677-6826.

New voting bloc at town hall? Page 14 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 23, 2011


CONWAY — There is a new voting bloc at town hall, and it has selectmen on both sides as well as at least one longtime political watcher talking about backroom deals. Although only one seat turned over as a result of last week’s election it swayed the balance of power, and clear lines formed at the first meeting of the new board of selectmen on Tuesday. A coalition of David Weathers, Mike DiGregorio and Mary Seavey carried almost every contested vote on Tuesday, from who should represent the selectmen at the budget committee to whether selectmen should recuse themselves from votes involving departments they get money from. Before the election the conservative-leaning members of board won most votes. Bob Drinkhall, Larry Martin and Crow Dickinson often sided together,

“The votes to install Dave Weathers as board chairman, Mike DiGregorio as vice chairman and budget committee representative and newly elected board member Mary Seavey as representative to the planning board are clear indications that backroom political dealings may be the name of the game for this year’s board of selectmen,” with DiGregorio often the odd man out and Weathers representing the swing vote. But now the conservative bloc has cracked, and a very different board has emerged in its place. Weathers took the chairmanship after Dickinson refused Martin’s attempt to nominate him. The same thing happened for the vice chair position:

Martin again nominated Dickinson, and Dickinson again declined the nomination. DiGregorio won the seat. “I told David I would support him for chairman,” Dickinson said the next day. “Occasionally he gets stuck on parliamentary procedures, but I’m there to help him.” But then, a short time later, Weathers voted with DiGregorio and Seavey to appoint DiGregorio to the budget committee over Dickinson. “That I found a little confusing,” Dickinson said, seeing as he’d stepped out of Weathers' way when it came for the chairmanship, “but that doesn’t matter. What happened, happened. I hope it all works out.” Martin, meanwhile, was frustrated the vote even happened. “We’ve generally gone along on seniority gets first choice,” he said, so Dickinson should get his pick of committees if there is a conflict. “Seniority should count for something.” “I have never seen that,” Weathers said the next day. “Why would a senior person be more qualified than a new person?” But that was the tradition, according to former selectman Mark Hounsell. “We never went to a vote,” he said. “It was done based on who’d been around longer.” There were never any fights over the appointment to the budget committee, Hounsell added. But these are different times. After a bruising budget cycle, DiGregorio was gunning for the appointment. DiGregorio is more sympathetic to the school than the selectmen’s last representative, Drinkhall, who proposed the 11 percent cut the budget committee ultimately made to the school budget. DiGregorio will bring a much different perspective to the committee. The way that vote and others went down has Hounsell wondering what the next year will bring. "The votes to install Dave Weathers as board chairman, Mike DiGregorio as vice chairman and budget committee representative and newly elected board member Mary Seavey as representative to the planning board are clear indications that backroom political dealings may be the name of the game for this year's board of selectmen,” Hounsell said. “Look for this coalition to be pro-chamber of commerce and supportive of the school budget requests.” Weathers rejected any mention of deal-making, as did Seavey. “It certainly wasn’t me,” Weathers said, “I don’t do that. I don’t make deals with anybody.” “No, no, I voted how I felt comfortable with things going,” Seavey said. "There's a lot of maneuvering going on right now," DiGregorio said, but "the backdoor deals were from the other side." Another selectman did call him, he said, and offered to trade support for DiGregorio's bid for budget committee for a vote for chairman. "That's not how I do business," he said. Others, however, have concerns about the new balance of power. “My fear is it may be fairly extreme,” former selectman Drinkhall said, referring to the new voting bloc. Instead of the cautious conservatism the former board exhibited, he said, “I would say [the new board] is on the opposite end of the spectrum.” At least one of the holdovers, however, isn’t going quietly. Martin was terse at Tuesday’s meeting, opting out of every committee appointment and keeping quiet throughout. The other selectmen noticed. "I was very disappointed Larry decided not to participate in any of the subcommittees," DiGregorio said. But by the next day Martin said he was over being frustrated. “My mission has changed,” he said. “I’m going to have fun with it.”

Selectmen vote down conflict-of-interest motion

John Allen is Kennett High Employee of the Month BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — John Allen, a math teacher at Kennett High School, has been chosen Kennett High Employee of the Month for March. Candidates are nominated by their peers, with final voting by the administrative team at the high school following a brief review. Allen, a newly elected selectman in Jackson, was nominated by colleague Marj Allan. Allan wrote the following:

CONWAY — Selectmen on Tuesday voted down a motion intended to cut the appearance of conflict of interest. The proposal would have restricted selectmen from voting on the budgets of departments they get money from. Selectman Larry Martin made the motion at the first meeting of the new board as the selectmen reexamined their board protocols. The policy would remove any perception of conflict of interest, he said. If a selectman gets a pay-

check from any arm of any department, he said, then that selectman should not vote on issues pertaining to that department's budget. The issue currently only pertains to selectman David Weathers, who works as a referee for the recreation department and also works on the ambulance in Conway. Weathers has not in the past recused himself from voting on issues involving the recreation or the emergency management department budgets, Martin said. Under this protocol he would have to. "I don't think what Dave has done in the past has been an issue," selectman Mike DiGregorio said.

In loving memory of your birthday on April 25th

Claudia M. Graves Dear Mom, You were always a great person a great person indeed, You were always there whenever we were in need. You raised us up in a big, safe world, I’m glad we had the chance to be your little girls. You always had a smile on your beautiful, warm face, God did the right thing by taking you to a good place. Even though we miss you and we grow farther apart, We will always have a place for you right here in our hearts!! Miss and love you so much. Happy Birthday, Love, Sally,Vicki, Julie, Lisa, Robin, Susie, Billy and Dad

True, Martin said, Weathers has been forthright in his dealings with the town, but that isn't to say everyone else will be as honest. Instituting the rule would clear up that concern. The policy wouldn't preclude the individual from weighing in on an issue, he said, "you just can't vote." Weathers, DiGregorio and the newest board member, Mary Seavey, all eventually voted against the policy change, killing it. The issue was really just between Weathers and Martin, according to DiGregorio. "It was personal," he said, and otherwise it isn't a problem.

Remembering you on this Special Day Mom You are so sadly missed and thought of everyday!

OSSIPEE — Sparks may fly Monday when an advisory committee meets to discuss what should happen to the old nursing home after the new one is constructed. Conflicts about appropriateness of rehabilitating the old building and about how the committee was formed will likely be brought up. The meeting will be held at 9 a.m. at the county complex. Presently, the county is constructing a new nursing home for a maximum cost of $23.5 million. The plan includes saving a portion of the old nursing home and razing the rest. In county government, a group of 14 local state representatives approve the budget, which county commissioners manage with help from department heads. Commissioner Asha Kenney alleges that the other board members didn't include her in the process of selecting two Carroll County Building Committee members who are to represent the general public. One is former commissioner Chip Albee. Kenney beat Albee in November's election. The other is former state Rep. Bob Bridgham (D-Eaton.) "Frankly, I was left out in the

dark," said Kenney. "It is my judgment that anytime when a committee is formed and members are appointed that it should be voted on by the full board of county commissioners. This is not a way to conduct business in front of the public. I hope it was a sloppy mistake and that the board does not conduct business

“It is my judgment that anytime when a committee is formed and members are appointed that it should be voted on by the full board of county commissioners. This is not a way to conduct business in front of the public. I hope it was a sloppy mistake and that the board does not conduct business like this in the future.” like this in the future." On Wednesday, Rep. David Babson (R-Ossipee) asked county commissioners David Sorensen and Dorothy Solomon if Kenney was involved in the committee appointments. Kenney was absent on Wednesday. The commissioners' answer was ambiguous. Sorensen said

Kenney was "knowledgeable" of the appointments. But he also said Kenney questioned how Albee and Bridgham were appointed. Sorensen said the appointments were recommendations from the office secretaries. The commission asked for volunteers to be on the committee at a recent delegation meeting. "It was out to the public that we were looking for members of that committee," said Sorensen who added no formal votes were taken to appoint members. Kenney said she only learned of the appointments after the fact. Babson was concerned that the commission appointed members to the committee behind closed doors via phone calls. "When we started coming here, years ago, these meetings were basically non-public," said Babson. "Over a period of time I felt there wasn't anything secretive going on. (Then) you said you appointed the building committee, well it wasn't done here in front of us in the public. It seems to be more and more decisions being made downstairs (in the commission's office)." Rep. Frank McCarthy (R-Conway) isn't a committee member but he's concerned the appointments of Albee and Bridgham suggest that the commission is see next page

loading the committee with big spenders. McCarthy has expressed interest in attending Monday's meeting. "Both individuals have already voiced opinions and can be considered automatic yeses to increase spending by perhaps millions of taxpayer dollars, with a goal towards substantially increasing the size and cost of the Kingdom of Carroll," said McCarthy. Albee said Kenney was being "paranoid." He noted that the committee is informal and has no power to do anything other than make recommendations. The building committee for the new nursing home was appointed in a similar fashion. As for McCarthy's concerns about spending, Albee said those were unfounded. Albee said in his time in office, the commission encouraged department heads to get spending under control — and they did. Keeping part of the old nursing home would allow for the county to run as efficiently as possible. Allowing the UNH Cooperative Extension to move in would save it $40,000 per year in rent. "He doesn't have a clue," Albee said of McCarthy. Bridgham said he didn't understand why McCarthy was attacking him. Bridgham was member of the building committee for the new nursing home. Bridgham said the new nursing home will be well-built and under budget. As a delegation member, McCarthy would be among those to authorize the construction budget for this project. He vows not authorize spending "a penny more" than the cost to take the old building down. According to

McCarthy, officials proposed the new nursing home under the guise that the old one was beyond repair. The problems is that key functions of the new nursing home are predicated on keeping part of the old building. Portions of the old nursing home will be used to house the wood pellet boilers and the laundry facility. Commissioners received an estimate of $50,000 for removing two wings — that money is in the budget for the new nursing home. So far, the committee consists of three commissioners, several representatives, two people from cooperative extension, employees from from laundry, maintenance, and the farm, and two members of the general public. The representatives who Sorensen listed were: McCarthy, Babson, Laurie Pettengill (R-Conway), Mark McConkey (R-Freedom), and Betsey Patten (R-Moultonborough). Rep. David Knox (R-Wolfeboro) was appointed as a representative from UNH Cooperative Extension. "Those are the people who may be in the building," said Sorensen explaining why the committee is so large."I don't think there are big spenders on the committee." But Effingham resident Henry Spencer noted that McCarthy had only asked if he could attend the meeting. Spencer said he hopes people realize the meeting is public. He also said the committee's size is "unwieldy." "One of the first things you should do is decide, of all the people in the room, who is actually on the committee," said Spencer. "There is a real difference between you're invited to come and attend and you are actually on the committee."

JOHN ALLEN from page 15

"John is one of the most dedicated teachers I have come across at this school. John has served Kennett High School on many levels, as a teacher, a coach, a department head, a faculty coordinator for Project Graduation and as an outspoken advocate for Kennett in general. "First and foremost, John has a passion and understanding of mathematics that makes him an exceptional teacher. He has a tremendous talent for showing students how mathematics is connected to their lives. The students truly enjoy John's classes. He makes mathematics relevant and engaging to them. "John's dedication to the mathematics department is highly evident. He is always there to offer valuable support and advice as needed to his colleagues. Under his direction, our calculus program has grown dramatically, as evident by the fact that the number (and percentage) of students now taking calculus at KHS is at an all-time high. Also, for the first time, we now have students taking the Calculus BC exam, and being successful at it. I remember last year how he devoted his prep time to tutoring a group of students who were interested

in taking the BC exam. John did not have to do this, but was very happy to provide them the support they needed to be successful on this high level exam. This year he is making the BC exam an option for all interested calculus students. And, it should be noted, last spring John had the honor of being a reader for the AP Exams. He spent a week with fellow calculus teachers from around the country reading AP calculus exams. He said it was an experience like no other. Our students will surely benefit from his experience in this capacity. "Finally, John truly cares about Kennett High School and is very proud of all that we have accomplished. John's knowledge and experience is invaluable to the Kennett community." The following is Allen's profile: Family: children Melanie, 19; and Timothy, 15. Position at Kennett: "Math teacher, although I have taught several science classes as well." Years at Kennett: Twenty-four. Your education: Hartwick College, Oneonta, N.Y., B.S. in mathematics. How long have you been working in your chosen career? Twentyseven years. see next page

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 23, 2011— Page 19

What was it that made you decide this career path? "I came from a long line of educators. Most of my extended family has taught either at the high school or at the college level. I like working with high school kids. Plus, I enjoyed coaching basketball, baseball, track, and soccer in my younger years. I have since retired from coaching and now I am focusing on the Advanced Placement Calculus courses at Kennett." What do you like most about working in the education field? "I love kids. I find that the students here at Kennett are all great people and I enjoy working with them. I hope that I have made a difference in my students' lives, whether it may be mathematics or some other aspect of the education career." What is the toughest part? "Too many of our kids are facing social and economic needs that far outweigh anything that is going inside the school walls. As a result, education is often not the highest priority in their lives." What advice would you give someone considering pursuing the education field? "The same advice that my father gave to me (who also

It is a great job and very rewarding, there isn’t a day that I don’t enjoy going into work, seriously! I love my job! There are a great number of issues within any school system right now, including budgets and pay/benefits for teachers, but aside from the negative press we receive daily (it seems) it is a great job." Name a couple of other staff members at Kennett that you admire and explain why? "Everybody is great! I love working with all the staff members here at Kennett. Certainly, I spend quite a bit of time with the math and science department because we all work together on the third floor, so I guess they are my favorite people." What do like to do for fun — hobbies? "All sports: skiing, golf, tennis, hiking, scuba dive — really anything outside." If you could have dinner with three people throughout history who would they be?

ALBANY — Join a revolving staff of Tin Mountain birding experts every Saturday beginning on April 30 through May 21 from 7 through 11 a.m. at one of the top birding spots of interior New England, The Brownfield Bog. The Brownfield Bog Wildlife Management Area is maintained by the state of Maine, and comprises 5,700 acres of shallow wetlands bisected by the Saco River. In early spring, a rich diversity of bird life migrates on its way

north to rest or nest in this vast wetland. American Kestrels, Northern Harriers, Wood Ducks, Great Blue Herons, Belted Kingfishers, Gray Catbirds, American Goldfinches, Dark-eyed Juncos, Black-capped Chickadees, Song Sparrows, American Robins, American Crowes and Thrush species are some of the birds that Tin Mountain staff and participants will be on the lookout for. Meeting time is at 7 a.m. at the

Grant’s Parking Lot in Brownfield, followed by a car pool to the bog where participants will traverse by foot. Bring rubbers, a snack and binoculars or borrow Tin Mountains. Donations of $3 per person and $5 per family are appreciated. For more information on this and upcoming Tin Mountain programs, classes, and events at Tin Mountain Conservation Center, contact 447-6991 or visit www.

We have been very busy at the shop the last few weeks, with lots of freight coming through the doors every day. The UPS driver has become a regular visitor; another sure sign of spring. Janet is doing her best to get all of the flies relabeled and out into the bins. I have been trying hard to get all the new stuff checked in, marked and displayed. Another sure sign of spring is how many trips I have to make to the dump to get rid of empty cardboard boxes. I have also been trying hard to catch up on rod repairs that I have been ignoring all winter. With any luck the last one will be done this afternoon. I still have a few outstanding fly orders to finish; Patrick I promise will get to those Wood Specials as soon as possible. I sincerely hope that everyone has a wonderful opening day.

The open cup-shaped nest, made of plant fibers and other materials, is placed low in a shrub or small sapling roughly one-to-ten-feet off the ground, and lined with animal hair and/or plant material. Females usually lay between three to five eggs and incubation time is approximately 11-15 days. The young fledge after they are about 8-to-10-days old. The prairie warbler eats mostly insects and spiders, but will also take mollusks and sometimes fruit and other vegetative matter. Fall migration begins in September, and the species returns to its local breeding grounds beginning in March. This is a 4.5-inch long bird that often bobs its long tail. The prairie warbler shows a distinct facial pattern on its small head, with a yellow eyebrow and a dark half-circle “mustache” below the eye on a yellow cheek, in all plumages. A spot of black on the lower neck is also evident. The underparts are all yellow, with vivid, dark black streaking on the flanks. Adult females

are similar to males, only paler. Most spring and fall adults have faint, rustcolored, chestnut markings on the back. It initially reminds me visually of the black-throated green warbler that nests in mountainous coniferous forests far higher than these Ossipee Pine Barrens. The prairie warbler is more often heard than seen, and their distinctive, drawn-out, remarkably ascending song can be heard late into the summer. This prairie warbler song is a buzzy sounding “zee-zee-zee-zee” that rises steadily in pitch. It may be a fast or slow. It has been likened to sounding like a helicopter taking off! The call note is a rather musical “chip.” Dave Eastman also broadcasts “Country Ecology” four times weekly over WMWV 93.5 fm.

Its flowers were a striking shade of lavender, though some added a subtle touch of pink, and some plants had pure white flowers. Later, a little research revealed that these were not true petals, but rather sepals, which on a true flower are green and lie beneath the petals. Its leathery leaves on the ground beneath the flowers, had grown the previous season and survived the winter. The common name for this plant was liverwort, named for the liver shaped leaves. Medicinally, they were made into a tea, and used to treat liver ailments, in line with the Chinese “doctrine of signatures,” which treated a human organ with the plant that most resembled it. Also on our recent spring hike, we were going to keep an eye out for the mourning cloak butterfly. It is a springtime tradition of ours to try and be the first to see one. They are out fluttering about on the first warm days of spring. They can do this because they spend the winter as adults in cryo-preservation. As the winter approaches, they produce various antifreezes, like sorbitol, which keep their cells intact in

winter. They find shelter from wind in tree cavities, under loose bark, or even in unheated buildings. On the first warm days of spring the males perch in sunny spots in the afternoon to await receptive females. In summer, after new adults emerge, mourning cloaks have a dormant period then as well (called aestivation), to avoid the dry hot period. Seeing a plant and a butterfly was our hope. But more also awaited. We drove south down Route 109 from Route 25 in Moultonborough, went straight on Route 171, and soon after the entrance to Castle in the Clouds, arrived at the Moultonborough/ Tuftonboro town line. Trailhead parking was on the left, next to the Welcome to Moultonborough sign. The trail starts out on private land and doesn’t enter the Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area, owned by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, until shortly below the top of Bald Knob. Starting out on the trail, we soon found evidence of the private usage of the land, and in a pleasant way. Beginning as a dirt road, the trail soon veered left on an old track. There were fresh truck tracks in the mud, and

when we rounded a corner, we saw a current “sugar bush” of maple trees. Most had buckets on them, making for a picturesque scene. The fresh tire tracks indicated they had been emptied earlier that morning. We climbed past the sugar bush on the old trail, passing a dark hemlock grove along a brook, which was tumbling down loudly with spring high water. Then we entered an open deciduous forest. The trail steepened, and we stepped around shattered volcanic rock, some obviously granite, some more basaltic. Lake Winnapasaukee slowly became visible behind us through the trees, still white with melting ice. Soon we felt we had reached the level where Hepatica grew, and we started looking. I moved off the trail, and looked around on the leafy ground. I sat down. Suddenly my friend spied a lavender colored bloom right next to my foot. That seemed to break the ice. As we continued up, we spied numerous blooms on the trail side. We climbed past the band of Hepatica, and the trail began to flatten as we reached a plateau. We walked out to the first wide ledge, and had a bite to eat in the sun with the shining white

lake spread out below us. Just below, across the road, dark smoke rose from a maple sugar shack. Above us through the trees, was the rocky top of Bald Knob. I decided to bushwhack up it, which I had never done before, and my friend stayed on the trail, which climbed up a shadowy saddle, then turned left up a cleft in the bulge to the top. We met on the summit ledges, and we immediately remembered the last time we had been there before, a few months ago. We had come up a different trail called the Bald Knob Cut-Off, directly from the Castle in the Clouds. It was frigid on top, and I took a picture of her with her arms out, leaning into the strong wind. But on this day we embraced the warmth of spring and relaxed. An occasional vulture flew in lazy circles overhead. A hawk glided by. We sat in the sun, and enjoyed the view. Suddenly, a mourning cloak butterfly flew by in the breeze, and was gone. Ofcourse, she was the one to see it. But later, on the walk down, just before the sugar bush, another mourning cloak flirted slowly by, and landed on the ground. I took a photo of it. Our hike was complete.

By Holiday Mathis say you are what you believe. But on days like today, when your mind is so open that you could believe everything just as easily as you could believe nothing, you realize that who you are goes deeper than the mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Because what you have is so desirable, it needs to be protected. This takes time and energy. Is it worth it? The same assets that put you in a sticky situation will get you out of it, too. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will be at your best today. You’ll present yourself in a way that’s unexpected. You’ll turn heads and make people smile, laugh and think. The world is more exciting because you’re in it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even when fashion is at its most beautiful, it still must change. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be fashion. A special relationship is like this now, too. What makes it so lovely is that you know it can’t stay this way forever. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your face is like a billboard for your emotions. You won’t be able to hide your feelings or play it “cool,” so you may as well go the opposite way and express the truth. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 23). You have the ability to make huge amounts of money this year, though this is not inevitable. Much depends on aligning your interests and ridding yourself of conflicting values and goals. May features a stylish new look. June is your chance to travel. Someone commits to you in July. October features a home investment. Leo and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 32, 31, 24, 43 and 11.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s like the right and left sides of your brain are having a ping-pong match, as your day’s work requires both creativity and logic. Write down your ideas. You’re on a hot streak. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Where three or more people are assembled, there will be politics. Instead of worrying about how this will play out, you get into the spirit of it and make sure it works in your favor. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Remember that no one is above human nature, and expect to make a few mistakes. Keep going when you do. Affirm to yourself: I am the pure, refined essence of awesome. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like to have a choice, but you also want to have things narrowed down a bit. It’s easier to choose from three than from 103. Someone in the middle who knows you well will make life easier for you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will be important to get in touch with people you know and like. If it’s difficult to do so, it’s a sign that your system of organization is off. This is the moment to get a better one. Virgo can help. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be trusted with critical information. You know what to tell and what not to tell. Your savvy day-to-day dealings will be noticed by the one you want to impress. You are earning a position of power. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Maybe you’re not prepared. Or maybe you’re just prepared for the wrong thing. Either way, it’s just the kind of glitch that brings out your best. You’ll be amazed at your own ingenuity. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some

Today is Saturday, April 23, the 113th day of 2011. There are 252 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 23, 1616, English poet and dramatist William Shakespeare, 52, died on what has been traditionally regarded as the anniversary of his birth in 1564. On this date: In 1789, President-elect George Washington moved into the first executive mansion, the Franklin House, in New York. In 1791, the 15th president of the United States, James Buchanan, was born in Franklin County, Pa. In 1896, the Vitascope system for projecting movies onto a screen was publicly demonstrated in New York City. In 1910, former President Theodore Roosevelt delivered his famous “Man in the Arena” speech at the Sorbonne in Paris. In 1954, Hank Aaron of the Milwaukee Braves hit the first of his record 755 majorleague home runs, in a game against the St. Louis Cardinals. (The Braves won, 7-5.) In 1961, Judy Garland performed her legendary concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall. In 1968, student protesters began occupying buildings on the campus of Columbia University in New York; police put down the protests a week later. In 1969, Sirhan Sirhan was sentenced to death for assassinating New York Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. One year ago: Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the nation’s toughest illegal immigration law, saying “decades of inaction and misguided policy” had created a “dangerous and unacceptable situation”; opponents said the law would encourage discrimination against Hispanics. Today’s Birthdays: Actress-turned-diplomat Shirley Temple Black is 83. Actor Alan Oppenheimer is 81. Actor David Birney is 72. Actor Lee Majors is 72. Irish nationalist Bernadette Devlin McAliskey is 64. Actress Blair Brown is 63. Writer-director Paul Brickman is 62. Actress Joyce DeWitt is 62. Actor James Russo is 58. Filmmaker-author Michael Moore is 57. Actress Judy Davis is 56. Actress Jan Hooks is 54. Actress Valerie Bertinelli is 51. Actor Craig Sheffer is 51. Actor George Lopez is 50.

Free by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I have a huge problem. I am 13, and my mom makes me buy clothes a size larger than what I need or want. I wear a size 0 pant and my closet is filled with 2’s. Mom likes her clothing loose, but I don’t like mine to fit that way. She claims she buys my clothes big so I can “grow into them.” But how much am I going to grow at this age? I don’t like the way these clothes fit, and it seems like a waste of money because I like expensive things. Mom bought me tops a year ago that are just beginning to fit me now. She doesn’t like shopping very much, and this disagreement makes it harder for both of us. I’ve tried talking to her. Please help, Abby. -- LOOSE AND BAGGY IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR LOOSE AND BAGGY: At age 13 it’s entirely within the realm of possibility that you haven’t yet achieved full growth. If the tops your mother bought a year ago are just beginning to fit you now, it’s because although you may not have grown taller, you are beginning to fill out. That may very well continue to happen with the rest of your figure over the next couple of years -- or sooner. While you and your mother may never have the same fashion taste, please trust her judgment for now. She has your best interests at heart. DEAR ABBY: I don’t like my 25-year-old daughter’s fiance. He never went to college, works a low-paying job and doesn’t know how to manage money. He floats through life and doesn’t appear to have any goals. I have raised these issues with my daughter in the past, but she didn’t want to hear it. I know I can’t choose her husband, and she’s free to make

her own choices. My problem is, I don’t want to plan the wedding. Every time I think about planning it, my heart aches and my stomach sinks. There is no excitement for my daughter. What should I do? Fake it, or level with her about not wanting to be a part of this? -- ANXIOUS AND WORRIED IN THE SOUTH DEAR ANXIOUS: Your daughter already knows how you feel about her fiance. When parents plan and/or pay for a wedding it is a gift, not a requirement. At 25, your daughter is old enough -- and should be independent enough -- to plan (and pay) for it with her fiance. It will be good practice for what lies ahead after her trip to the altar. DEAR ABBY: I volunteer with a support group and have fallen for one of the members. I’m certain she doesn’t know my feelings. I have respected her right to pursue the support she sought without the complication of romance. I have been resigned to the fact that an extraordinary woman has simply crossed my path under the wrong circumstances. However, a trusted friend has suggested that special people come only rarely into our lives and that I should consider leaving my role as facilitator to pursue her. I’m now struggling over what to do. I find great satisfaction in my volunteer work, but am drawn to this woman. -- TORN BETWEEN TWO DESIRES DEAR TORN: If you approach the woman while she’s a member of your group, it could be considered a breach of ethics. Therefore it might be better if you wait until she is strong enough to leave the group before you approach her for a personal relationship.

Baha’i Faith “Wert thou to attain to but a dewdrop of the crystal waters of divine knowledge, thou wouldst readily

realize that true life is not the life of the flesh but the life of the spirit. For the life of the flesh is common to both men and animals, whereas the life of the spirit is possessed only by the pure in heart who have quaffed from the ocean of faith and partaken of the fruit of certitude. This life knoweth no death, and this existence is crowned by immortality.” _ Baha’u’llah

Chatham Congregational Church adds two months to worship schedule BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CHATHAM — The Chatham Congregational Church (United Church of Christ) is expanding its hours of service to the community. Beginning this Sunday with the traditional Easter service (9 a.m.), the church, which once appeared in a Johnny Carson Christmas special, will be open six months instead of four. Rev. Donald Derse will preside over the church for the second year and is looking forward to the extra two months of worship in this quaint little hamlet.

Dartmouth, Plymouth State looking for volunteers to test MatScan equipment If you ever saw Disney’s “Alice In Wonderfulâ€? you might recall the White Rabbit and the song he sang – “I’m late, I’m late; for a very important date‌â€? Right now, I know just how he felt so this week’s column will be rather brief and to the point. Sorry! Plymouth State University’s Health and Human Performance department is working on a grant in partnership with Dartmouth and Plymouth State University. They are testing the reliability of a piece of equipment called the MatScan. The Scan reads where people are putting pressure in their feet and gives the doctors quantitative data that they can analyze. At this time they are testing independent-living older adults between 65 – 79 years to assess their risk of falling based on the information received from the MatScan. Testing will take place here on May 2, 4 and 6 and last for about one hour each day. If you’d like to participate call Jill at 356-3231 ext. 16 to see if you might qualify for this study. You too might become a “test rabbit!â€? Have a good week, pray for our troops and God bless! see GIBSON page 40

A group at the South Tamworth Methodist Church made more than three dozen dresses to send to people in Haiti.

Church group makes dresses to send to Haiti

On Sunday, March 13, Dave Sargent of Tamworth visited the South Tamworth United Methodist Church and showed a video of his participation in a mission trip to Haiti last year. He is part of another mission trip on April 22 from First Congregational Church of Ossipee. Sargent told the church members how they could be involved by sending much needed supplies with his group. Since then the church family have been collecting over-the-counter medical supplies, underwear, healthy snacks, etc. In just four weeks, two ladies have sewn 38 sundresses for girls age 6 months to 12 years. They are Suzanne Wiedenheft and Beverly Sullivan. The South Tamworth United Methodist Church sponsors a child in Port-A-Prince, Haiti who will be 8 in May. Sargent is taking a bag filled with special gifts for her and will bring back pictures of her for the church. This mission group will be involved with the recovery effort in Haiti and asks that everyone keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

White Birch Books, North Conway Public Library present luncheon with author Julia Spencer-Fleming

CONWAY — White Birch Books and the North Conway Public Library are teaming up again for a luncheon featuring author Julia Spencer-Fleming, appearing for a return engagement. The luncheon is set for Thursday, May 12, beginning at noon at Flatbreads in North Conway Village. Tickets are $20 and are available at the bookstore and library. Proceeds support the North Conway Public Library. “We are so happy to have Julia back!” said North Conway Librarian Andrea Masters. “Her books are incredibly popular at the library particularly after she was the featured speaker at our luncheon four years ago. Our patrons have been waiting eagerly for her new book for quite a while now and the waiting list for it keeps growing daily.” Spencer-Fleming’s hotly anticipated new book is “One Was a Soldier,” the seventh book in her Clare Fergusson/ Russ Van Alstyne series. Russ is the police chief in Millers Kill in upstate New York. Clare is the town’s Episcopal priest. The previous book in the series

left off with Clare heading off to Iraq as a helicopter pilot and her relationship with Russ up in the air. “One Was a Soldier” opens with her joyful return to Millers Kill, but it is obvious things are not the same. Coming home is harder than it looks and as a small band of veterans grapple with their demons, Spencer-Fleming weaves a wicked tale of deceit that travels all the way to Baghdad. The Flatbread lunch consists of a wood-fired vegetarian minestrone soup and salad with marinated ginger tamari chicken. Dessert will be provided by North Country Wholesale. The luncheon is additionally sponsored by North Country Animal Hospital and White Mountain Lock & Key. Spencer-Fleming will give a talk about her book and all of her novels will be available for her to sign. Tickets are $20 and all proceeds will benefit the North Conway Public Library. For more information, call White Birch Books at 356-3200 or the North Conway Public Library at 356-2961.

Selling and staging in the spring Submitted by Linda Walker Shopping for a new nest is what spring is all about. Sunshine and warm weather causes buyers to feel that same longing for a new start. Traditionally spring has been the peak season for putting a home on the real estate market. Here are several good reasons to decide to sell in the springtime. 1. Sprucing up the exterior and increasing curb value is much easier during the spring season when plants begin to sprout, snow has melted and the siding, porches and walkways of the home can be power washed and scrubbed. Curb appeal is the number one hook to get buyers inside to look at your home. 2. Spring is the perfect time to increase the square footage perception of your home without spending a dime on construction. Clean out that garage, basement and attic to give your buyers the impression your home is much larger than it appears from the outside. Spring cleaning, tag sales and donations to local charities all go together nicely when the weather warms up. 3. Buyers have cabin fever from the long winter inside and are ready get out and about into the sunshine. Make your home the sunniest view on your street by placing some springtime yellow pansies or other yellow cool weather plants in hanging pots on the front porch. see WALKER page 42

Little things can make a big difference By Lindsey Maihos If you are thinking of selling your home you need to prepare and align yourself in this market. You can enhance your home to its fullest, and make all buyers feel “at home” by creating an environment that is inviting. First impressions count The buyers first assessment is the "curb appeal" of your home. Does the fence need paint, are there weeds in the walkway, is the grass mowed? The doorway is the focal point of your home. It should be clean, freshly painted with numbers of the home and perhaps some flowers to enhance and welcome potential Buyers. Once inside, appeal to the senses People react more favorably to property shown under bright light. Checking on your lighting, replacing light bulbs and adding lamps to darker areas will improve showings of your home. Color is also best if kept neutral and light. Buyers should be focusing on a blank slate, thinking of how they will make the home their own. Odors Smell has more impact than you might expect. It can work for you or against you. The smell of newness is positive, for example fresh paint. The smell of cleanliness is important to the selling environment of your home. Beyond cleaning, lemon oil can create a lasting scent of freshness. Fresh flowers are also a nice touch. see MAIHOS page 42

Sunset views over the Moat Mountain range from the classic 1930’s cape. Wonderful craftsmanship and attention to detail. This home has always been a resident property and can serve that purpose with ease. With the great frontage on the White Mountain Highway, home office or office would be ideal. If antiques are your hobby, it would be a perfect location. Town sewer is stubbed at the street. Worth a look.

Once the decision to sell has been made, the next phase is staging your home to make it appeal to the masses and attract a buyer. Home staging is about illusions. It's beyond decorating and cleaning. It's about the art of creating moods. Staging makes your house look bigger, brighter, cleaner, warmer, more loving and, best of all, it makes home-buyers want to buy it! Staging is what you do after you've cleaned, de-cluttered, painted, made minor repairs; it's all about dressing the house for sale and adding the small details. The idea behind staging is to allow rooms to show themselves. If your home is vacant, it's soulless; without staging, it may remain on the market for many months. The kitchen is the heart of the home. Some ideas for making this space sparkle are to apply oil to cabinets that appear dry, which will renew their original luster. You can also put out large bowls of fruit such as polished apples, bright oranges, or

lemons and limes, as well as arrange colorful cookbooks on the counters. Bring the outdoors inside through the use of greenery and plants in order to create clean, crisp spaces and arrange furniture with plenty of room to walk around. Don’t forget the bathrooms, they should look open, airy and clean. One trick is to add baskets filled with spa treatments such as scented soaps and lotions and incorporate decorative jars. Don’t forget to replace your old faded shower curtains and put out new towels that match your color scheme. The yard needs staging, too. Keep the grass cut, bushes trimmed, and flowerbeds well maintained. Also, keep the sidewalks cleared and make sure visitors can clearly read your house number. For patios and decks, use plants and potted flowers for the added pop of color. Information gathered from Keeping Current Matters and Steve Harney.

Too young for finance? Think again BY RON LIEBER NEW YORK TIMES

One of the best things about being around preschoolage children is that they are a blank slate awaiting your imprint. All of the big questions come up before first grade — God and death, jail and fairies — and most 4-year-olds will believe pretty much any answer you give them. Until recently, however, few people made much effort to get children this age to think hard about money. Why go all pecuniary on a child who has barely mastered counting? In the wake of the financial crisis, however, and the realization that individuals share at least some blame for the bubbles, a number of people and organizations have taken up the cause of helping the next generation of grown-ups form better habits at an earlier age. The JumpStart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy recently expanded its target age group to include the pre-kindergarten set. A new book called “Pretty Penny Sets Up Shop” tells the story of a young girl who sets up a “small mall” in her grandmother’s attic to pay for her grandmother’s surprise party. And then there’s Sesame Street, which has a broader reach than any nonprofit group, publisher or even the Head Start program. This week, Sesame entered the fray, too, with a series of videos and other material aimed at teaching its audience about spending, saving and sharing. There is no definitive proof that any of this will make a lasting impact. “It would be 20 years before we would know the results,” said Laura Levine, JumpStart’s executive director, who served on Sesame Street’s advisory panel. But the beauty of watching young children absorb these lessons and answering their questions is that it can make you more aware of the financial examples you set. Every shopping trip and holiday gift

can become a teaching moment about hard choices, patience and generosity. So here are how the lessons break down: SAVE: The title of Sesame Street’s package of videos also serves to sum up its component parts: “For Me, For You, For Later.” The literal representation of it are the three labels that come with the DVD in a kit that you can pick up free at any PNC Bank, which is Sesame Street’s partner in the project. You can also download the labels and other print materials on the Web; I’ve linked to the Sesame and PNC sites from the online version of this column. The three labels read “Spending,” “Saving” and “Sharing.” Children are supposed to affix them to three clear plastic jars where they can drop their coins and bills. None of this is particularly new. In fact, a company called Snigglezoo Entertainment has been using puppets called the Money Mammals for years. They sing about the virtues of saving, sharing and spending, the very same terms that Sesame Street uses. John Lanza, Snigglezoo’s self-described chief mammal, said he was still processing the similarities and declined to comment further. Jeanette Betancourt, Sesame Workshop’s senior vice president for outreach and educational practices, said it had been aware of Snigglezoo’s (and many other) trademarks around the terms and noted that the words were in wide use. Nevertheless, she added that Sesame used the words in a unique way for its own specific purposes. But only Sesame has Elmo, and millions of children are very likely to try to mimic his behavior. In the video, he’s trying to save $5 to buy a “stupendous” ball from a street vendor. At one point, he turns down ice cream so he doesn’t lose ground on reaching his ultimate goal. This moment goes by in a flash, but it is a crucial one. It isn’t easy for a child (Elmo is perpetually 3 1/2 years old) to give up something pleasurable in the moment

in exchange for something bigger and better later on. If you need evidence of this, pop some corn, grab the family, flip on YouTube and search for the (absolutely hysterical) marshmallow tests. Researchers put the confection in front of small children and tell them they can have one now if they’d like, though if they leave it on the table they can have two later on. Then, they leave the room and flip the switch on the camera to see what the children do. Many devour the marshmallow before the tester even leaves the room, but that doesn’t have to be a permanent condition. “I think there is a lot about this process that is a learned skill,” said Russell N. James III, who teaches in the financial planning division at Texas Tech University. “It’s like soccer or other physical skills, where you can coach them. And you want to give them opportunities where they can exercise those skills.” That’s where the piggy banks and the jars come in. And when James’s 6-year-old daughter coveted the Nook e-reader that her older sister got for Christmas, he told her that if she did not touch the holiday money she had received from her grandparents for 30 days he would give her the rest of the money she needed for the Nook. “A year would be too long,” he said. “Because you want them to practice a lot and do it several times under different circumstances.” SPEND: This is the easy part for children, at least at first glance. What’s much harder, however, is determining what different things are worth. Sesame Street takes a couple of stabs at this in the public service announcements that accompany its main video, where Beth Kobliner, author of “Get a Financial Life” (Fireside, 2009) and an occasional contributor to The New York Times, appears alongside

Elmo. In one segment, Elmo has to decide between two apples and one mango for the same price. In another, various children decide between larger sizes of six paints and smaller sizes of 12 for the same price or bigger packages of plain pencils and smaller packages of colored ones. The “Pretty Penny” book has a slightly more sophisticated take on this. Penny must decide how much to sell her various items for in the mall, and she manages to do it without any help from grown-ups. No preschooler I know could pull this off, but the book’s author, Devon Kinch, said the actual prices were less important than the idea of relative value. “The prices are just talking points for parents to jump in and talk about these ideas,” she said. “Some things can be fixed, and others are slightly damaged or new. It’s a conversation-starter.” SHARE: Designating one jar or part of the piggy bank for “sharing” instead of “giving,” is a smart twist, as it builds on play date and preschool skills that many children are already learning. Some parents may worry about teaching charity so soon, lest their offspring be frightened by exposure to deprivation and poverty before they are ready to place it all in context. It’s not such a leap to share money with those in your community, however, whether it’s donating to the local zoo or passing it along to your house of worship. In one of the Sesame Street segments, a child buys food for cats that a local animal rescue service is caring for. Sharing with friends in need is a fine idea, too, though Sesame’s depiction of this is rather odd. Cookie Monster, who even in 2011 still has trouble with impulse control, ends up eating the dollar he was planning to spend on cookies. So Elmo hands over a dollar. Cookie hardly seems like the most worthy recipient of a disciplined saver’s largess, though the Sesame staff seem to think that young viewers will treat this as some kind of inside joke. “He plays the role of a typical preschooler who may be having a really hard time with the question of why he can’t have something right now,” said Gary Knell, Sesame Workshop’s president and chief executive. “They sort of get the message that, ‘Gee, I don’t really want to be like him. But I can laugh at him.’ ” EARN: The Sesame video package introduces the idea that there are lots of ways to make a little bit of money on the side if you’re industrious. Elmo earns a few bucks by folding clothes and helping Luis fix a broken ice cream machine. The “Pretty Penny” book ties all these themes together in a particularly linear package. With no money saved, Penny must earn the money she needs to spend on a special occasion to share with her grandmother. This was no accident, said Kinch, the author, who has struggled with debt in the past and carefully picked the topic for what will be a four-book series. “They are constant themes in everyone’s life: Do you have it? Do you need it? How do you get it and what do you do with it?” she said. “It is impossible to teach one of the money themes without overlapping another one.”
