The Dittmeyer murder, one year later Indictments are expected by mid-June BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Attorney General’s office said on Monday it expects to formally charge the three men arrested in connection with the murder of Krista Dittmeyer by mid-June. Anthony Papile, 29, Michael Petelis, 29, and Trevor Ferguson, 24, have all been in custody since they were arrested last May in connection with the murder of 20-year-old Dittmeyer, but they have yet to be indicted.
Dittmeyer’s body was found a year ago in a pond at the base of the Cranmore ski area several days after her car and her 14-month-old daughter had been abandoned a short distance away. The story garnered national media coverage. Papile was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, while Petelis and Ferguson were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit robbery. see INDICTMENTS page 11

Chefs that rock out
NEW YORK (NY Times) — Things can get frantic at Recette. It’s one of those tiny West Village spots where the kitchen and the dining room rub up against each other. But even in the pandemonium of a dinner rush, even with orders and questions pouring in from all directions, Jesse Schenker, the 29-year-old chef, manages to stay in the zone. There’s just one thing you don’t want to interrupt. “If a server needs something from me, and I’m in the middle of an air-guitar lick,” he said, “I’m going to finish it before I respond.” Schenker, who has Pearl Jam lyrics tattooed along his left arm and left thigh, treats the practice of air guitar with great reverence, and a propulsive display of air drumming is such a common ritual in the kitchen at Recette that it should probably be listed as an invisible garnish for most items on the menu. For a new generation of stove-top virtuosi, music (punk or hip-hop, classical or country) is far more than the fuel that powers them through a busy Friday night. It inspires the way they cook, and the way they live. “It clears my mind and gives me a blank canvas to work from,” Schenker said as the dining room quickly filled on a Thursday in March and Metallica’s “Fade to Black” laid waste to the kitchen sound system. When it gets too hectic and overwhelming, I just turn on a tune. And I focus.”
A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.” —Elsa Schiaparelli

Police chief in Trayvon Martin case likely to resign
SANFORD, Fla. (NY Times) — The police chief who temporarily stepped aside last month over his department’s handling of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin was expected to resign Monday, according to city officials. Chief Bill Lee Jr. of the Sanford police department dismissed earlier calls for his resignation
after questions were raised about why his department did not immediately arrest George Zimmerman, the 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer who was released early Monday on bail while he awaits trial on second-degree murder charges. City commissioners in Sanford were scheduled to hold a special meeting at Monday at 4
p.m. to consider Lee’s expected departure and his severance agreement. “They have a separation agreement and we have to approve it later on,” said Mark McCarty, a city commissioner who has been critical of Lee’s handling of the case. “I am pleased that they have come to agreement for Mr. Lee to leave the chief’s job.”
Europe tired of cutbacks; has few alternatives FRANKFURT (NY Times) — Citizens from Prague to Paris to Amsterdam have made it abundantly clear the last few days that they are tired of the economic austerity forced on them by the euro zone debt crisis. But as the budget-cutting pain of reduced government benefits and social services brings protesters to the streets and drives support for nationalist or farleft parties, it is not clear what the economic alternative might be. Rejecting austerity budgets in favor of more government spending will not automatically ensure economic growth, many economists say. “The last thing these economies need is a debtfinanced stimulus program,” said Jörg Krämer, the
chief economist of Commerzbank in Frankfurt. Governments in countries like Spain are having enough trouble financing their existing debt, much less coming up with money for stimulus spending. Germany, the only large country in the euro zone with budgetary room to increase its deficit by spending more, is not willing to. (And neither was the Netherlands, at least until its government collapsed Monday over a dispute that essentially involves the austerity vs. growth debate.) Financial markets were down deeply and broadly in Europe Monday, on concerns over the backlash to austerity, and the sell-off carried over to the United States markets.
Report: Mexican immigration to U.S. slowing
(NY Times) — Mexican immigration to the United States, the largest wave of migrants from a single country in the nation’s history, has slowed stopped increasing after four decades of surging growth and may be declining, according to a report released Monday by the Pew Hispanic Center. In what the report called a “notable reversal of the historic pattern,” the number of Mexicans leaving rose sharply in the five years after 2005, while the new flow of migrants coming from Mexico into the United States fell steeply. For the first time in at least two decades, the population of illegal immigrants from Mexico living in this country was significantly decreased, according to the report. In 2011, about 6.1 million Mexicans were living here illegally, down from a peak of nearly 7 million in 2007, it said. “We really haven’t seen anything like this in the last 30 or 40 years,” said Jeffrey Passel, senior demographer at the Pew Hispanic Center, who co-wrote the report with D’Vera Cohn and Ana Gonzalez-Barrera.

Sunday night Roy facing 13 charges in child beating case power outage hits Bartlett, Jackson and Conway area BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — Approximately 4,000 New Hampshire Electric Cooperative customers in Jackson, Bartlett, North Conway and Conway were without power for almost two hours Sunday evening due to a failed insulator on a Public Service Company of New Hampshire transmission line leading to a power substation, according to Seth Wheeler, communications administrator for the electric cooperative. The power went off at 8:07 p.m. and was restored at 9:54 p.m., he said. “It was a failed insulator on PSNH’s 395 transmission line that serves two of our substations. One is at Perkins Corner, and the other is our Conway substation,” said Wheeler Monday. He said it was unfortunate, as many restaurants were affected during the busy dinner hour. The only saving grace, he added, was that the Red Sox-Yankees game had been rained out and the Bruins-Capitals playoff hockey game was already over by the time of the outage. “We shut down, rather than wait it out,” said Mary Ellen Delaney, co-owner of Delaney’s Hole-in-theWall Restaurant of North Conway, one of the local businesses affected by the power outage. “We lost our Internet so we could not process credit cards. But we were OK, because we had had a busy afternoon and early evening because of the Bruins’ playoff game on TV [in the bar.]”
CONWAY — The Albany man accused of severely beating a 2-yearold boy last December could face more than 100 years in prison if found guilty of the more than dozen charges filed by a grand jury last week. Justin Roy, 33, faces three class A felonies, seven class B felonies and three misdemeanors following the grand jury’s review of the case. The charges range from kidnapping and criminal restraint, but the majority of complaints are assault-related — first-degree assault, seconddegree assault and simple assault. A number of the charges include
extended prison terms. The child was at Roy’s home when he was beaten so badly he had to be flown to a Portland hospital for emergency surgery. It was several months before police made any arrests in the case. Meanwhile, the child’s mother, Heather Downs, 32, of Bartlett, also now faces charges that could put her in prison for up to 10 years. The grand jury indicted Downs on three misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child, one for each of her children, and tampering with witnesses and informants, a class B felony. Roy had already been arrested and charged with two counts of seconddegree assault, but these are the first
charges to be filed against Downs. Downs and Roy were in a relationship at the time of the incident, and according to court documents she told police she was at Roy’s trailer the night her son was hurt. The 2-year-old boy had a host of injuries, according to court documents, including perforations to his intestines that allowed fecal matter and blood to leak into his abdomen. Health officials told police the boy lost roughly half his blood volume. A nurse called it “the worst case he had seen in regards of suspected child abuse.” Roy is currently being held on $50,000 cash bail. He and Downs are both scheduled for arraignment on May 2.
Police investigate missing scholarship funds BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — Police are investigating possible embezzlement from a local scholarship fund dedicated to music education. No arrests have been made. Board members of the Peter Lewis and Peter White Scholarship Foundation say the account is “solvent” and additional security measures have been put in place. A board member called the Conway Police Department in late March after she discovered irregularities in the fund’s bank account. The fund gives scholarships to Kennett High graduates pursuing music degrees. The board had questions about why they were experiencing delays in some of their disbursements, so they went to look. “At that time we discovered there was a debit card attached to the account,” the board said in a written statement, “and withdrawals had been made with that debit card that had absolutely nothing to do with scholarship expenses.” The debit card had been added in
2009, the statement said, and should not have been there. “We immediately hot-carded and shut down the debit card and started an audit. Additionally, we closed the existing account and transferred the funds to a completely new account number.” The board found roughly $3,000 missing. The foundation turned over bank statements and a copy of the audit to the Conway Police Department on March 22. Lara Sullivan, the 29-year-old daughter of scholarship namesake Peter White, was in charge of the account at the time, according to the board statement. Sullivan did not return a call for comment. The police have yet to make any arrests in the matter, spokesman Lt. Chris Perley said, but they do have “people of interest.” The investigation is ongoing, he said. He declined to give further details. The scholarship, meanwhile, is trying to move forward. “This scholarship WILL continue on,” the board statement said. “All commitments and obligations have been met to the present day. We wish
everything to be very visible and transparent, warts and all.” The statement continues: “The account is solvent, and we have taken new security measures as to the disbursement of any money from the account. All checks written on this account must and will have two signatures. There are no and will not be any debit cards attached to this account.” The scholarship was first founded in 1986 following the death of Peter Lewis, a musician from the U.K. who made the Mount Washington Valley his home. “Peter always encouraged people to follow their dreams,” the board statement said, so his friends created “a scholarship to celebrate his memory and to help a Kennett senior realize their dream of music.” “In 2002, at the passing of Peter White,” the statement continued, “the name of the scholarship was changed to the Lewis and White Music Scholarship. Like Peter Lewis, Peter White loved the Valley and used his talents to help out all kinds of causes.”

–––––––––––––––––––––– LETTERS ––––––––––––––––––––––
I did not set out to trap anyone with letter To the editor: My name is William Harriman II and I live in the corrupt little town (population 3,450) of Fryeburg, Maine. I am entering this statement into the public record because it has come to my attention that someone is attacking my credibility by using the fact that the local paper unjustly banned my letters to the editor for six months because of a socalled “blatantly false” letter. The fact is that my letter in the Oct. 8, 2010 paper is true. The original spring (called Poland Spring) has been too dry to produce any large amounts of commercial water for years. Nestle takes its water from a different well located in town. When Mark Dubois wrote his rebuttal saying that I was “categorically wrong,” he was referring to the town of Poland Spring.

I don’t know if anyone has noticed but those guys used to write very lengthly letters to the editor until I started writing rebuttals.

Secular culture heralds cynical message of murder as health ethic To the editor: I weep ... I weep when I see and hear women suffer because alien voices in the secular culture herald the cynical message that murder — abortion — is a viable public health ethic. Who’s health? The baby’s? The mother’s? So think with me, Focus on the Family, and Family Research Council about what abortion may do to a woman mentally and physically. Some of the risks may involve future ectopic pregnancies [when the baby grows outside the uterus], pelvic disease, breast cancer, placental
damage, infertility, depression, acute grief, anger, fear of disclosure, preoccupation with dead babies, nightmares, sexual dysfunction, alcohol, drugs and food abuse, vivid recall of brutal abortion procedures — and finally the dead, lifeless, soul-less bodily remains of a baby. Not a happy outcome. Responsible men, responsible fathers, mothers, family advocates, social workers get involved. You are needed. The need is great. The culture is going to hell. Help! Write!

How should searches and rescues in the White Mountains be funded?
There were 42 responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question: “How should searches and rescues in the White Mountains be funded?” Nineteen people said the people who need to be rescued should pay the cost of search and rescue, whether they are negligent or not. Another nine people said hikers or others who need to be rescued should pay for the rescue only if they are negligent, but not because of accidents or injuries. Six people said hikers should have insurance and should be charged for a rescue if they don’t have insurance to cover it. Five people said there should be permits or user fees for hiking. Two people said hikers should not have to pay. Four people suggested tourism dollars or other state funding should pay for the rescues. Three people suggested the option of not having rescue efforts or not having Fish and Game or the state involved in them. One said people just shouldn’t go into the mountains. Another suggested paying for rescues with bake sales. Of the hiker who was recently charged for her rescue efforts, six people said she should not have to pay for the rescue; two said she should pay.
I have been a hiker for over 50 years and have two basic rules when hiking above the tree line in the winter time. One, “Never Hike Alone” and two, “Never Hike When Bad Weather and High Winds are in the Forecast.” It seems our lost hiker ignored both of these rules and in my opinion should pay for the rescue. However; an injury rescue is different. There is always a risk of loose rock, slippery wet conditions, roots, etc which can cause twisted ankles or falls. In these cases, in my opinion, the hiker should not have to pay. You can be very experienced and prepared, but accidents do happen. I have seen many hikers on the trails without proper gear and even some hiking in the snow with sneakers. To these people, all I can say is, “Stay Home!” This is an interesting public policy question and a very real issue. Left unattended, the escalating costs associated with mountain rescue will eventually consume funding for other outdoor recreational activities that are already user funded. To an extent that is happening now. It matters little whether a rescue victim was ill-equipped or well-prepared, the costs are still immense. Legislatively, laws already exist to recoup emergency costs, through the courts if necessary. Fish and Game has had access to this emergency cost recoup law for almost a decade. Although they use it sparingly, they are often, and unfairly, portrayed in an unflattering light for doing so. A better system is needed to more regularly fund expensive rescues. For the likes of Jeb Bradley to simply say “let the victims pay,” is short-sighted, narrow-minded and avoids (like usual) the reality of the problem. I see three choices to this problem: no rescues, subsidized rescues or private rescues. If the legislature wants to avoid unfunded costs associated with rescues they could, through legislation, relieve Fish and Game of any statutory responsibility for rescue. Of course that would publicly identify New Hampshire as indifferent to human suffering and be bad for tour-
ism. It would at least get Fish and Game out of the dilemma of having to save people without full financial support of the House and Senate. Subsidized rescue could easily be accomplished by simply charging all hikers and climbers a reasonable fee to recreate, and in turn using that money to underwrite the rescue operations. This method is used successfully for ATVs, snowmobiles, boating, hunting and fishing. Licensing fees are a part of managed outdoor recreation and a fair way to spread costs among those who enjoy the activity and those who suffer its consequences. Privatized rescue would simply be a combination of the other solutions. The state collects hiking and climbing fees, returns the funds to localized rescue outfits, and these outfits are the ones left to the responsibility of mountain rescue. Limited rescue, “pay-to-play” fees or designated self-rescue areas may even make the sport safer. Hiking and climbing are great sports everyone should enjoy. It just should never endanger others, or their properly-funded sports. I have been a member of the White Mountain Search and Rescue for almost 50 years. My feelings: I feel that search and rescues in the White Mountains should be funded as they currently are but with a bit more care. If a pure accident occurs, then the cost should be borne from the state from its tourist dollars. If a negligent accident occurs then the victim should bear the costs. The problem arises currently from an unfunded Fish and Game Department who in their current role, as Rick Wilcox says from the Daily Sun quote, “in a desperate attempt to extract dollars from hikers and climber. Unfortunately the judgment of the Fish and Game Department, in recent years, has become flawed. It’s become more flawed as the need for more dollars has increased. The Conway Daily Sun reported on Saturday that the incident of Mrs. Horgan as having been charged “for a series of errors of judgment.” One of the errors was that she did not pack enough extra food. Well, she survived splendidly, despite having not had extra food. So, the extra food was a nonissues. The major also says that “she did not heed the weather.” Well, most of us mountaineers and hikers go out in bad weather; albeit with contingency plans. If we did not go out in bad weather we would not have the skills to rescue people that got caught in bad weather. If the weather is really bad, then we don’t go out. We make the judgments. We are skilled people. As the major said: “not having adequate navigation equipment,” I’m not exactly sure what that means. We know she had a cell phone, however, with 14 years experience, if she did not have a map and compass, I personally feel she should pay the $7,000. Such an omission is inexcusable. But then The Conway Daily Sun may not have got all the quotes correct. After all, in the same paper, the Conway Daily Sun says under a rescue picture that SOLO is a mountain rescue school. What ignorance. After 40 years in the Valley, SOLO has never been a mountain rescue school. It is a school for wilderness medicine. And while wilderness medicine is an important part of mountain rescue it is nowhere near as critical
as competence in the mountains, which comes from actual experience in the mountains. If experienced people have a simple common accident like putting their foot in a hole or tripping over a log, I feel they should not be charged. If they are in any way grossly negligent, in my view, not only the Fish and Game, but also the experienced rescuers, if they feel that, they should pay. This is Bill Aughton. If the brakes on my car fail, through no fault of my own, and I drive my car through my neighbor’s garage, should that neighbor or maybe the one across the street pay for the damage I did? Ridiculous isn’t it! If you need a search and rescue you pay for it, period! That mantra should become part of the hiker’s code. What is wrong with this culture? Doesn’t anybody want to accept personal responsibility? It starts right at the top with President Obama blaming everybody and everything for his failures, and it winds down through the whole of society; to having to pay for someone else’s contraception, down to some local folks doing search and rescue that think just because it wasn’t a hiker’s fault somebody else should pay. What happened to personal responsibility? Lack of personal responsibility makes you weak. So now what, implement a hikers fee? Let’s pay a fee to walk in the woods. I hike all over the White Mountains and spend many consecutive nights camping deep in the forest and if I ever need a search and rescue I expect to fully pay for it. I won’t take a dime of anybody’s money. I will pay with a smile on my face, happy to be alive; because that’s how I was raised. It’s about character, integrity, and personal responsibility. And the moment I take my final nap, I’ll close my eyes and take my last breath with a smile, knowing that I “owned up” and was never a burden on my neighbor or society. Personal responsibility is a personal responsibility. Wake up America! I believe in smaller government and personal responsibility. At least some the financial burden should fall on those who require search and rescue, regardless of the reason. N.H. Fish and game could institute a voluntary “insurance policy” for hikers. It would cover an individual or group in the event that a rescue was necessary. Without the policy, a hiker, who got in trouble, would be billed a portion of the rescue cost and a “reckless or negligent” hiker would be billed for the entire cost. The cost should not come out of the room and meals taxes. Suzanne Nelson, North Conway. It is a complicated question, not easily answered. We need to have such rescues and searches in order to save lives! Yet we need to have the money to do so. Funding such programs needs to come from fees for hiking, climbing, etc., related to the rescues, not from meals and rooms tax, which has nothing to do with the rescues. Somehow we need to attach the funding to the activity that causes rescues and searches, and not just money from elsewhere that is already appropriated fully. Also on a side note, why does it cost $7,000 for a rescue, when these resources and salaries are being paid for regardless of their use? These are people’s lives at stake and I’m not comfortable with putting a price on that.
There must be a way to fund these rescues outside billing the person who is now just grateful to be alive. A Bartlett resident. If they start charging people when they get lost in the woods, the next thing you know they’re going to start charging people when their house is burning down — the fire department will be getting paid. It’s a bad thing. The Fish and Game people get paid anyways no matter if they’re working or not working so just have them do their job. This is Dave from Albany. This is J.J. from Conway. I thought the Fish and Game agency, said automatically, a couple of years ago, if a person gets lost hiking there they were going to be funded automatically. They should be billed for it. I mean why should the rescue go in there and rescue the woman or the man or whoever and do it for free. They should be billed. The old saying is if you play, you must pay, and no discount either. They should be billed the full amount. They should pay according to their negligence. The hikers that get lost and need to be rescued, or just any hiker that needs to be rescued, should pay to get rescued. Why should a taxpayer pay for someone to get rescued? If you call an ambulance, you get billed for the ambulance. If you call for rescue, the hiker should get pay the bill. Come on people; it’s just common sense. Charge the hiker for the rescue. How should search and rescue in the White Mountains be funded? By those who need to be searched and rescued for. If you’re a hiker or a camper and you’re not responsible for yourself, you shouldn’t be out there. Each one of us are responsible for our own actions. I’m sorry people get lost and turned around, but they should be billed if they have to be rescued. Ronnie from Conway. Funding should of course be assumed by the person who required the assistance. However, if the person who needs the assistance is a Caucasian male he should pay the maximum fees. If the person who needs the assistance is a minority or a Caucasian female no fees should be charged, because at birth these people have been shortchanged the privileges that the average Caucasian male has. And in consideration of the times, this will fit very much in line with Barry Obama’s program of class and racial distinctions. This would be truly echoing today’s Obama world. First off, get Fish and Game out of the rescue business. Twelve Fish and Game officers responded to a rescue and can’t even find the woman lost on Mount Jackson, but charged the woman $7,500. A National Guard helicopter spots her and three Mountain Rescue men bring her out no charge. How does that work? Get rid of Fish and Game. Turn the authority over to the state and local police. Fish and Game act like Gestapo. With the number of hunting licenses dropping every year, there is little need for Fish and Game; it’s just another redundant police force. You can always get a renta-cop for hunting season. see TELE-TALK page 8

TELE-TALK from page 7
Let me get this straight: The state is willing to pay the amount that it does to pick up a dead drug addict, and they’re willing to make a person who is a living person who is lost by accident in the woods pay $7,000? I say get the spare money from the failed DARE drug program. This is Jim in Wolfeboro. If someone’s an experienced hiker and it just was a mishap and something bad happened, then I would say not to charge them that much for something like that, maybe charge them a little. But yes, I do say if they’re not experienced and they go out there and they’re not prepared for the elements I think that they should be charged. They should pay for it. They should have some kind of tax for that. And all people that hike should pay some kind of taxes if that’s what they want to do, so it can help everybody. It is sad if it has to come to this but maybe we should put those little brown boxes at the end of a trail. Put in a couple of bucks to hike. That money could pay for search and rescue. What’s a couple of bucks to see the great outdoors. This is Sue in Conway. I think the people that go out hiking should be responsible for any costs incurred. It’s not the taxpayers’ responsibility to pay for what they got themselves into. It’s a choice to go out in the wilderness and I think they should be responsible for it. I don’t want to see one lousy penny of my tax dollar used to rescue people off mountains. Why don’t they go with the European style: You buy and insurance to get yourself off the mountain by that means or you pay the bill in full. I go along with Jeb Bradley here somewhat, but why should any rescue have to be cut down because it might be somebody nice? Let’s let them, if the fools what to climb, let them pay their own damn full bill — all expenses to get themselves out of the woods. No tax dollars whatsoever. If a person fell in their own home or in a public place like Hannaford or Shaw’s, they would have to pay for the ambulance if they needed one, so why not have to pay for rescue in the mountains if they need to be? Another thought would be, regular hikers, hikers who always hike and love to hike on weekends, might be issued an insurance policy, by I don’t know whom, but by some company or by the forest service and then the funds from the insurance company would help pay for rescues of people who are unable to pay but then the insurance would cover the hiker in case they needed to be rescued. It was just a thought, but I think it’s a good thought. Hiking is a sport or an activity that carries certain risks with it. You should be prepared for these when you go up there in the mountains and hike. If you go up there and get yourself in trouble, are you going to rely on the taxpayers and the state to come and rescue you, because of errors in judgement or improper navigation equipment, etc., whatever the case may be? I agree with what some of the people in the paper are saying is that any hiker who needs to be rescued should be prepared to pay. That’s the bottom line right there. It costs to do almost anything in life — not just coming to the Valley, but anything in life. So, this should be the price of playing. If you’re going to require this special service, and quite expensive special service of being rescued, calling up Fish and Game and all of these rescue services to come to your aid, you’re
going to have to pay these people. You can’t expect the state to cover this additional expense that you have incurred yourself. You should be a little more accountable for your actions. It seems to me that if errors in judgment cause you to be lost and a search and rescue have to be gotten under way to find you and save you then you should be responsible for all charges that are incurred. This is Eric from Tamworth. The hikers should have insurance just like skiers should have insurance when they go break their legs on these mountains. It should not become the responsibility of the state or the town, if they don’t have insurance they should just have to pay; it’s as simple as all that. I’ve climbed many mountains including many large ones, like the Jungfrau in Switzerland, and Mount Washington many times. One of the most important things in climbing a mountain is to go well prepared with proper clothing. On Mount Washington, I have seen people wear sandals, light sneakers, completely ill-prepared in case of a storm or a mishap. Another thing is I am always self-insured. Taking out insurance is a very little bit of money to spend for saving your life, but I don’t think the town of Conway nor the state should bear any expense for these incompetent people. I can understand and accident happening and they certainly have to be rescued but they should bear the expense. People should have common sense enough not to be in the White Mountains and then no one would have to pay anything. I feel that distressed hikers should not be billed for the rescue and people coming to get them. Instead I feel that when they make the initial 911 call the call should be transferred directly to the N.H. Fish and Game Department, where they’re informed that there will be a charge to have a search and rescue team come and get them, and they’re notified that they could potentially be billed thousands of dollars and they need to make their mind up if they in fact want someone to come and get them and if they’re willing to pay for the costs to cover the people who are getting out of their beds and coming out and risking their lives to save whoever it is that’s just made the phone call. I guarantee you that when someone’s in a life and death situation and they’re informed that there is a cost when someone is going to come save their life, I guarantee you that they’ll pledge you more than $7,000 or $10,000 like this woman’s getting charged. And if they’re not then they’re on their own, and at the very least if people know that they will be charged and there is a potential charge for their negligence then it doesn’t matter whether they fell and broke their leg or they failed to stop and buy a simple compass or maybe even a map of where they are, so they don’t get lost and have to spend a night in the woods, that they’ll think twice, that they’ll be more prepared and they’re aware that the money will come out of their pocket or potentially they’ll be left to die. It’s a harsh reality; we live in a harsh area. People have to know how to fend for themselves and not after that complain about the costs for people to get up out of their beds and risk their lives to come and get them. All our leaders are brain dead. They’re not able to use common sense anymore. We used big money to abort babies, kill them. We pay big money to help those on welfare to have more
babies who we add to our support bills because it would be against their rights to have them fixed so they can’t have any more children. Yet, here we have a 62-year-old lady who probably worked and paid taxes all her life and she did everything right but she got lost. So we charge her $7,000 to rescue her when we used to just go look for a lost person for free. And what happens to the $7,000 that she pays? Does that help got to pay for our leaders’ parties with hookers? Now we have incompetent leaders. Our selectmen can’t even run a 12-foot-by12-foot dump store, let alone a town. God said he would give a nation who left him out children to rule over them — adults with the mind of a child. Are we there yet? And you wonder why people are talking more and more every day about a revolution to get rid of all our leaders from Washington on down to our town. I can answer your question with a question: Why are we bothering to go search for these people who go get lost in the woods in the first place? It’s their fault that they went off into the wilderness and got lost. Why should we have to pull money out of our pockets to pay for these fools who have gone off and got lost off some trail somewhere? I say don’t even bother to go search for them. Let them stay up there in the woods. Perhaps someday somebody will find their carcass lying on the side of the trail and we can pick their bones over for what’s left, such as their wallet and whatever money is in there, or maybe their expensive clothing. You can take that to one of the local thrift shops and sell it off for a profit there. Lots of people could benefit from this. I say don’t even bother to search for them. Leave them where they lay. This is Patty calling from Conway. As far as who should pay for these missing hikers, well, I have a $35 fishing license; if I go unprepared without a fishing license and I catch and release, why am I paying for fish I’m not keeping? I’m just out there enjoying myself. By the way, I’m not really from Conway, I’m from Massachusetts. And this missing hiker, or this injured hiker, $7,000? Way too much. These people are getting paid to do their job, and because she was from Mass., she was treated unfairly. Those people are paid to search and rescue. But on another note, like a fishing license, if you’re an inexperienced hiker you should have to register to hike and pay a fee if you don’t have the right materials, just like fishing poles, tackle box and a license because this is going way overboard. Did you just hear that sound? That was the sound of a toilet flushing. We just called Washington and Obama said “Oh, don’t worry about it. We can do another stimulus package and we’ll take care of all the hikers and everything else in the Conway area.” We’ve already got Blue Loon busing, all these other things we’re wasting money on. As far as these hikers, Obama will take care of them. He’s the man. User fees. If you use it you pay for it. I refuse to pay for you, your children or their crimes or their costs. I’m responsible for me. You’re responsible for you. I don’t see a lot of people walking off the Empire State Building, because if they do they know they’ll be the ones paying for it. We’ve all had some bad luck and made errors in judgement. That’s called living and learning. That’s your parents job to teach you that and your job to live it. The concept of America paying for your bad choices has driven our country
close to collapse. The only fair answer for all is to pay for your own mistakes, whether it’s not exercising, smoking, drinking, getting pregnant or murder, you should have to pay every penny for every resource you consume. For a hamburger today, I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday as the fat man keeps eating burger after burger. But just like the wind, Tuesday’s come. The following Tele-Talk responses were posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page: Not in this case, no. You want to play, now you can pay. Simple enough. I think that anyone who enters the national forest should pay a $200 entry fee and put up a refundable $10,000 deposit against rescue. The entry fee could help pay for the big fence around the forest to make sure no one sneaks in and for the people manning the gates taking the fees. That may not do much for tourism, but it would keep the good rich folks of New Hampshire from having to pay for any of it. Or maybe it could pay for better marking on the trails so people don’t make the negligence (mistake) of going the wrong way. Seriously, this woman did nothing wrong except get lost. She was obviously prepared enough to spend the night below freezing since she did just that. There should be an appeals process for this kind of bill. I think maybe you all should stop inviting people up there to spend their money, and then when they get in trouble tell them too bad. Perhaps the business owners who make a living off tourists’ money should pitch in and pay for it. “Hike at own risk.” That goes for shopping at the dump store too! By the fools who get lost. Bake sale! Charge a fee to anyone hiking for a permit/license like is paid to fish, hunt, boat, snowmobile, etc. This fee would cover rescues, trail maintenance, rangers, etc. Fine anyone hiking without a permit. Offer a lower rate to anyone who takes a hiking safety class that teaches being prepared, being safe, and being self-reliant. Charge the hikers who are negligent and subsequently need rescuing. For accidents and misfortunes, that’s just a small price that residents pay for getting to live in this beautiful area. How would you feel if you needed mountain rescue? How do towns in other popular wilderness locations handle these situations? Who is going to judge whether a hiker is prepared vs. the “hiker” who thinks he/she is invincible because they have a cell phone? Perhaps a form of insurance — like flying insurance — could be made available. Compare this to drivers. Not by me if they go unprepared or into dangerous places like the ravine in spring. If you play, you pay. The forest service could put a daily updated list of required items for hikers to carry that day to NOT be charged for rescue suitable for the predicted conditions and weather expected at the ranger station. (This woman didn’t bring all she should have; she had clothing but not the gear to get herself unlost. She wasn’t prepared for bad weather that might obscure the trail.) If you don’t have the items on the list and have to call for rescue, expect a bill. In this case the rescue was accomplished by volunteers. Fish and Game has a lot of nerve sending a bill for something they didn’t do.

functions like a taxi service. Dial-a-ride users call the Blue Loon’s dispatch center 24 hours in advance to schedule a lift. Every town except Conway approved money. Conway residents voted 831-701 to decline the request. The vote put the Carroll County Transit Advisory Committee in an awkward position of having to consider shutting off dial-a-ride service to the town that uses the system the most. On Friday, the transit advisory committee met to decide what to do about Conway. The audience, of about a dozen people, burst into applause when Conway town manager Earl Sires announced the news about the mystery donor. “I got a call this morning from an anonymous donor in town who is willing to fund the entire $3,000 amount,” said Sires from the audience. Committee chairman Jack Rose replied a solution has been found for this year. “The rides will be continued,” said Rose. “However, we need to think about how we are going to keep this going next year.” Before learning of the anonymous donor, Conway resident Beatrice Richards offered a $500 donation toward dial-a-ride service. Richards explained she’s originally from Switzerland — a country where people can take trains and buses wherever they need to go. She said the Blue Loon needed more good publicity and a schedule that’s more clear. The Blue Loon also operates a “flex route” bus system from Conway to West Ossipee and from West Ossipee to Wolfeboro or Laconia. The flex route wasn’t impacted by Conway’s vote because it’s mostly funded by the state of New Hampshire. The flex route began running months after the diala-ride service. The two programs were supposed to start at the same time. The Blue Loon also does private charters. Stan Solomon, husband of transit committee member Dorothy Solomon, added there’s been some confusion about the fare schedule too. Blue Loon head Beverly Raymond said fares can vary depending on where the person is going. She said people can call to get information about how much their particular trips would cost. Another criticism is people have been seeing

empty buses driving down the road or parked in front of stores. But Rose said that’s just a matter of logistics. Sometimes the buses are empty between pick-ups and drop-offs, he said. Raymond also said the Blue Loon officials will be having educational talks about the system throughout the county. As Rose requested, Sires explained the political process in Conway. He said non-profits like TriCounty Community Action Program have to ask for money from the town through a warrant article — a separate item on the ballot. The non-profit submits an application and the selectmen and the budget committee discuss it in February. The 16-member budget committee voted unanimously not to recommend funding the Blue Loon. Selectmen don’t take a position on non-profit warrant articles. After the presentation, there’s a public hearing, a deliberative session and a ballot vote. In other words, said Sires, non-profit organizations need to do a lot of campaigning. “We say it takes a fair amount of work to ensure success,” said Sires adding the town has been reluctant to fund new non-profits. Evan Lucy suggested adding the Blue Loon directly to the town’s budget. He noted the $3,000 request would amount to a property tax increase of 27 cents on his $125,400 home. Addressing the point about good publicity, transit advisory committee members George Cleveland and Howard Cunningham said riders need to advertise the Blue Loon by word of mouth. “When any of you get on that bus to do something, whether it’s the hairdresser or go shopping or a medical appointment of some kind, you are contributing to the economy of the Conway area,” said Cunningham. “Every time you do business, if you want to help, when you’re at the cash register or whatever you do to square up, you can say ‘I wouldn’t be here doing this if it weren’t for the (the Blue Loon).’” Several people shared stories about how the Blue Loon helped them. Dianne Devlin said elderly and disabled people rely on the Blue Loon. She said word is spreading and she thinks more people will be using it a year from now. see BLUE LOON page 10

“It’s the best thing to ever happen to the town of Conway,” said Devlin who was attending the meeting with a few other residents of Pinewood apartments. Ronald Carman says he depends on the Blue Loon to get around. He wanted the service to add some weekend coverage. Sharon Strangman said the Blue Loon was her “lifeline” because she doesn’t have a vehicle and most people she knows are too busy to give her a ride. But the Blue Loon has filled the void. Stangman recalled the Blue Loon giving her a ride to the dentist the day she developed a toothache. Normally, dial-a-ride users are required to give the drivers 24-hour notice. “If I didn’t have the Blue Loon to do what I needed to do (getting to the grocery store, eye doctor, dentist, diabetes specialist, and primary care physician) I’d be sitting at home, my teeth would be rotting, my eyes would be gone and I’d be slowly dying of diabetes,” said Strangman, “I don’t have to worry about that because I know one quick call will get me to where I need to be.” Last month, lawmakers decided against making a $15,000 donation on behalf of Carroll County toward the flex route system. In Carroll County government, a group of 14 representatives approves county budgets. During the county budget process, Rep. Laurie Pettengill (R-Glen) said it was upsetting for her to see a Blue Loon bus parked in front of a local pub on the evening of St. Patrick’s Day.

discovery of two bodies in Springfield; a fatal shooting in Chesterfield; and a homicide in Claremont. This is not the first time April violence has rocked the state: One year ago, the disappearance of a young mother had people similarly transfixed. It began on a cold, wet Saturday morning, April 23, at around 6:30 a.m. when someone reported a car running with its flashers on and its door ajar in a lot adjacent to the Cranmore fitness center in North Conway. In the car was a 14-month-old infant. There were no adults around. The vehicle was registered to a 20-year-old Portland, Maine, woman named Krista Dittmeyer. Originally of Bridgton, Maine, Dittmeyer had ties to the Conway area, police said. The child was her daughter, and after a brief trip to the hospital she was turned over to family members.

In those first few days, the Conway Police Department called it a “missing person investigation,” but with searchers combing the woods it didn’t take long for questions to arise about why a young mother would abandon her daughter. By Sunday Dittmeyer’s disappearance had jumped from local to statewide media. By Monday morning the national news had picked the story up, and reporters from CNN, NBC, ABC and other stations made their way to Conway. Authorities told the gathering reporters they had executed several search warrants in connection with Dittmeyer’s disappearance, but they still didn’t know what had happened. “This has clearly transitioned into a criminal investigation,” Conway Police spokesman Lt. Chris Perley said at the time. “She is a victim.” State and federal personnel, including FBI agents, lent a hand to make sure there were enough people to deal with the hundreds of tips that were pouring in as a result of the media coverage. Soon details emerged about the father of Dittmeyer’s daughter, who was serving a prison sentence in Maine for cocaine possession, which raised even more questions about the circumstances surrounding her disappearance. Then on Wednesday morning the bad news came — a Cranmore employee saw something in a snowmaking pond at the base of the mountain. Within minutes, police and news vans were rushing to the scene. Police kept extending the perimeter of restricted access around the pond until eventually the reporters were relegated to the same parking lot Dittmeyer’s car had first been discovered. “It is with great sorrow that I tell you we located the body of Krista Dittmeyer,” said Jane Young, the chief of the state Attorney General’s Criminal Justice Bureau, a short time after a hearse passed by the news vans. That day marked the end of the search for Dittmeyer, but the investisee ONE YEAR page 12
INDICTMENTS from page one
Those charges are felony-level, however, and they did not come from a grand jury, so before they men can be tried in superior court the cases have to go before a grand jury. In most cases there is a requirement that such formal charges come within 90 days of arrest, but the prosecution did not adhere to that timeline in the Dittmeyer case. It has been more than 11 months since the three men were arrested in connection with her murder. “We are cognizant of that rule,” Young said, but “the 90 days is not hard and fast.” Police have continued to investigate the case “as recently as two weeks ago,” she said. “This is a priority case.” Papile’s attorney, meanwhile, did not raise issue with the delays. “I have no comment,” said Jesse Friedman, a public defender. “That’s all I’m going to say on this one.” Papile, like Ferguson and Petelis, is still in custody. Papile was sent to jail without bail, while Ferguson and Petelis have been unable to post the $250,000 bail set by the judge last May. And while Papile has yet to face formal charges in this case, the grand jury did indict him on unrelated felonious sexual assault charges last August. According to the complaint Papile allegedly had sex with a 14-year-old in December of 2010.

Conway PD was at center of Dittmeyer media storm BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Dittmeyer case was not the first time the local police department found itself at the center of a highprofile case, but it was a different kind of case than in the past. In 2007, Lt. Chris Perley said, the department saw a high level of media scrutiny following the triple homicide at the Army Baracks on Route 16 in Conway, but “but it was much shorter-lived and the perpetrator was apprehended within 24 hours.” The Dittmeyer case, however, just kept going. “It was a true whodunit,” Perley said. The investigation went on for four days without a body, during which time Lt. Perley was the primary point of contact for the media, which included CNN and other national news networks in addition to

gation into what happened was still just beginning. The Attorney General’s office, however, was not trying to find a victim and therefore shut off the flow of information to news outlets. The news vans quickly disappeared, and residents were left wondering what had just happened. Then in early May, without warning, the Attorney General’s office announced three men had been arrested in connection with the case and they would be arraigned in Ossipee. Anthony Papile, 29, of Ossipee, was charged with two counts of second-degree murder, while Michael R. Petelis, 29, of Ossipee, and Trevor Ferguson, 24, of Tamworth, were both charged with conspiracy to commit robbery. Paperwork filed at the courthouse laid out what police believe happened. Petelis, who prosecutors called Dittmeyer’s protector, allegedly plotted with Papile to steal drugs and money from
was looking for tips, and as a result of the coverage they got them. “We got hundreds,” he said, “and then it neared 1,000.” “We were getting them from the West Coast and all across the country,” Perley said. The department had to dedicate more people to weed through those to see if there was any-
thing of value. Luckily investigators from around the state stepped up, he said, and helped process all the information. “All the major players were here,” he said, from the FBI to the State Police. “Even though we’re a small state,” he said, “the law enforcement community pulls together.”
Dittmeyer. They lured her to Petelis’ apartment on Route 16, where Papile allegedly hit her over the head with a rubber club. According to the documents Papile and Petelis then allegedly bound her with duct tape, and then Papile put her into the trunk of her own car. Papile then allegedly drove the car to Cranmore and put her into the pond. The documents say Papile then abandoned the vehicle with Dittmeyer’s daughter inside and called Ferguson for a ride back to Ossipee. There he and Petelis allegedly divided up what they stole from Dittmeyer. The Ossipee judge set bail for Ferguson and Petelis at $250,000, which neither posted. Papile was sent to jail without bail. All three have remained in custody since that court appearance on May 11. None of the three have been formally charged by a grand jury, but authorities are sure they have the right people. There are unlikely to be any other arrests connected to this case, Young said on Monday.

Hills are alive: Trapp Lodge wins the Tuckerman Inferno team title BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
MOUNT WASHINGTON — “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” was a hit song in 1965’s musical film about the von Trapp family, “The Sound of Music,” and it certainly was a perfect theme song for grandson Sam von Trapp’s winning team in the 2012 Friends of Tuckerman Pentathlon Inferno April 21. Captained by von Trapp, a 39-yearold executive vice president of the Trapp Family Lodge of Stowe, Vt., the five-member VTXT-Trapp Family Lodge team won the demanding fivepart race with a total time of 3 hours, 32 minutes and 01.70 seconds. The race — along with the Wildcat Wildfire Pentathlon held on a similarly-formatted but somewhat easier course an hour later — is presented annually by the non-profit Friends of Tuckerman Ravine organization as a fund-raiser to help the U.S. Forest Service’s snow ranger program and to preserve and protect the traditional back country uses of Tuckerman Ravine on Mount Washington’s eastern flank. “This means a lot to us,” said von Trapp, who is grandson of the late Maria von Trapp of “Sound of Music” fame. “I skied it last year, and I really loved it. So, I went home, and along with our competitive kayaker, Robert Flanagan, who at 60 continues to amazes us, we assembled a team comprised of some of our cross-country ski coaches at the Trapp Lodge.” The team won three of the event’s five classes, with Flanagan putting in the fastest kayak run on the lowwatered, “bony” Saco from Attitash’s Thorne Pond to Glen Ellis Campground in 42.09.89. Trapp’s Jake Hollenback had the fastest cycling leg from Glen Ellis Campground to the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Pinkham Notch Camp with a time of 48:25.57. Trapp’s Ryan Kerrigan, 26, had the fastest hike from Pinkham to the base of Left Gully in 39:50.87. Trapp’s Robyn Anderson was fifth in 1:00:11.22 in the first leg, an 8.3-mile run from Story Land up over Glen Ledge to Attitash’s Thorne Pond. Von Trapp was third in the final ski leg with a hike time of 21:24.14 and a GS ski time down the 30-gate course in 58.81 seconds. The ski leg was won by Jason Small of the 26th-placed Angry Pirates with a climb of 19:01.56, and a ski time of 50.35 seconds. The fastest running time for the 8.3-mile course was 48:59.37, put in by Alex White of the top dynamic duo team of Tucksanity. Von Trapp said he was surprised by how fast Kerrigan, the team’s hiker, was in getting to the bottom of Left Gully. “I cost us two minutes putting my ski boots on and getting onto my skis because Ryan [Kerrigan] was so fast in getting there that I was surprised by how fast he got there to the transition and tapped me. I was just glad I didn’t blow it for our team,” said von Trapp, who said he was proud to have won the team title of the demanding race. “It’s such a special event. Mount Washington is unlike any mountain in the Northeast. It reminds me of the terrain I saw when I taught skiing in the
Andes. To come and win here against all of these great athletes is a real honor for us and Vermont,” said von Trapp. Overall results Twenty-six teams and 27 solo TuckerMen competed in the five-part event, along with four women solo entrants, a four-team all-women’s class, and a fiveteam dynamic duo category. Placing second in the team class was Team Axa, captained by Jen’s Friends founding board member David Veale of Chester, with time of 3:40:41.75. The team was second last year. Top local team was Cooper, Cargill and Chant of North Conway with a time of 4:48:49.79, good for 23rd place. The team was comprised of Becky Oleson, Andy Brown, Aaron Wood, Dennis Morgan and Chris Meier. Kovac, Michaelsen win Tucker solo titles Winning the solo TuckerMan class was James Kovac, a doctoral candidate and teacher at Harvard University. He won with a total time of 4:08:53.10 (51:50.94 in the run, 57:11.44; 58:44.92 for the bike, 13:12:12.7 for the hike and 2:39.48 for the GS). Placing second was Steve Piotrow of Jackson, with a total time of 4:10:12.80 (57:21.40 for run, 50:03.32 for the kayak, 56:51.94 bike, 13:15:43.3 hike, 3:37.64 ski). Third was Josh Flanagan in 4:22:14.60. “I actually dunked my kayak 15 minutes into the paddling leg. I had to pull out, empty out the water, and get back in. I played catch up the rest of the way,” said Kovac, an endurance athlete. In the solo TuckerWoman class, Dartmouth PhD. engineering and MD student Kelly Michaelsen was first in the four-women field in 5:11:58.71. Joanne Grogan was second in 5:39:56.69. In the all-women team class, Marie Bouchard’s Wild Things of North Conway repeated as winners with a time of 4:24:47.52. The team is comprised of Liz Stockinger, Kelsey Allen, Meredith Piotrow, Fabienne Pattison and Suzie Carrier. Placing second for the second year in a row with a time of 4:38:10.51 was the Valley Girls team of North Conway, consisting of Cathy Livingston, Lynn Lyman and Carrie McLane with newcomers Laura McLane and Sandra Iacozili. In the dynamic duo category, tops was Tucksanity (Alex White and John McCarthy) in 3:57:29.84, followed by last year’s winners, Waters Acquity (4:08:16.45) and a local team, the Red Jersey Cyclery (Mike Malkin and Carl Iacozili) in 4:45:48.12. Wildfire results In the three-team Wildcat Wildfire Pentathlon, the West County Old Stars of Buckland, Mass., was tops in 3:15:26.56; followed by Ski Dads Ski Club (Eskimos) of Pelham in 3:36:35.73 and Waters Patrol of Sharon, Mass., in 5:12:38.11. Valerie Rothen of Conway was top WildWoman in 4:47:36.00, while Neil McDermott was top WildMan in 3:30:25.48. Top dynamic duo was Team Mocean in 3:44:23, followed by Waters XEVO in 4:16:36.28, and Wickford Wild Women in 5:32:14.83. Waters Patrol won the allwomen class in 5:12:38.11.

MWVST named USSA’s 2012 Alpine Club of the Year BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
BARTLETT — The United State Ski and Snowboard Association, which has over 400 member clubs, has selected the Mount Washington Valley Ski Team as the 2012 Alpine Club of the Year Award. “I was psyched,” Dave Gregory, head coach and program coordinate for the Mount Washington Valley Ski Team, said, Friday. “It’s a really good thing for the program, we’re all pretty pumped; it’s really a validation of what we do.”
“We think it’s a pretty big deal, “ Martha Leich, of MWVST, said by phone Friday. “We’re a little club, a small operation, which makes it all the more special to be recognized.” Gregory got the news by mail Friday morning from USSA CEO Bill Marolt. “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Mount Washington Valley Ski Team Club on having been selected to receive the 2012 Alpine Club of the Year Award,” he wrote. “The Club of the Year Award is presented to a USSA Competition Club in
each sport, which has distinguished itself in providing direction to young athletes through high-level competition programs resulting in athletic success. The USSA athletic management team manages selection with direction from each USSA sport director.” MWVST will receive its award during the USSA Congress 2012 at our Chairman’s Awards Dinner, May 11 at the Park City Marriott in Utah. see MWVST page 18

Kennett boys win three in thrilling fashion CONWAY — It would be difficult to script a more exiting week than the Kennett High boys tennis team just enjoyed. The Eagles went 3-0 over vacation week and strung together three fantastic finishes. It was a script Hollywood would have a hard time believing. Coach Chris Bailey’s troops were missing players to sickness and injury, plus vacation. He was forced to juggle his line-up three times; went deep into his bench for players; had one athlete serve underhanded due to a nagging shoulder injury; and fought off numerous match points to chalk
up three wins and watched Kennett improve to 4-1 in Division II play. “It was quite a week,” Bailey said smiling. Kennett beat arch-rival Kingswood 5-4 in Wolfeboro on April 16; topped Plymouth 5-4 on the road Wednesday; and swept the three doubles matches Friday to edge visiting Pembroke Academy 6-3. The Eagles trailed 4-2 after the singles matches at Kingswood, but swept all three doubles, two after fighting off match points, to win 5-4. In singles, Oren Bentley, won 8-3;
Danny MacDonald, won 8-3; Kyle Blakely lost 8-5 after trailing 7-3; Thomas Gregston lost 8-3; Greg Miller lost 8-4; and Robert Schrader lost 8-1. In doubles, Bentley/MacDonald cruised to an 8-1 victory and then it became nail-biting time. Blakely/ Gregston trailed 7-6 and match point, but battled back to win 9-7 to knot the overall match at 4-4. It all came down to the No. 3 doubles with Miller/Schrader winning 9-8 (9-7 in the tie-break after trailing 3-0 and 7-6 match point). see TENNIS page 18

Opening Day is scheduled for April 28 with teams gathering at Whitaker Field for photo opportunities followed by the annual parade on Main Street, North Conway and a welcoming speech at Whitaker before the boys and girls strike off for their games. Over the next several weeks, well over 100 ball games will be played in the valley before the school year ends. All games within the local league are played in the valley with no long travels. Those looking for a higher level of competition can try out for the two travel teams – The 12U team and the 10U team. Travel teams will play in a number of regional invitational tournaments with the 12U District Tournament being held in Farmington and the 10U Tournament being hosted right here in North Conway from June 23 to July 1. Over the years, MWV has been a force in it’s District, winning a majority of titles and has also taken some State titles from much larger areas such as Nashua and Keene. MWV Cal Ripken baseball has been the primary baseball program in the valley for over 25 years and teaches the game to boys and girls from age 6 to 12. MWV Cal Ripken is independently run and relies on the generosity of it’s team sponsors, player fees, and fund-raising activities. On May 12, players will participate in the Home Run Derby where points are awarded for distance and bonus points for home runs. A number of other events will be taking place to raise funds. It is the goal of the league to have a batting cage at each of the four towns. For more information, visit us at http://mwv.baberuthonline.com or visit us on Facebook MWV Cal Ripken Baseball.

State champs still winning BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — The Raider softball team opened their season just the way they finished the 2011 season, by defeating anyone they faced. The 2012 model opened with a win at Wells before vacation and win at home against Poland during April vacation. Coach Fred Apt, never easily satisfied, did not seem thrilled with Fryeburg Academy’s win over Poland on Friday. “We are a work in progress,” he said. “Right now we are scoring runs but we are only getting production from the top of the order. We need everyone to hit the ball.” Although the Raiders shut Poland out 10-0, they were only ahead 3-0 after four innings and were not able to put a strong rally together early. Carla Tripp stood out going 4-4 and scoring four runs and driving in a run. Maddie “The Whammer” Pearson knocked in two runs. The Raiders did manage three runs in the fifth and four runs in the sixth to seal the victory. Sarah Harriman pitched a twohitter and shut out Poland using her growing variety of pitches. Apt talked of Harriman’s use of a new pitch, “Sarah’s rise ball was awesome. She didn’t use it down in Connecticut.” Harriman also dominated the Wells Warriors in a 20-1 win in the seasonopener. Along with pitching and giving up only one run, Harriman drove in five runs, two with a first inning home run. Ariel McConkey also hit a home run for the Raiders and Pearson hit a two-run triple to lead the potent Raider offense.
Raiders open 2-0 BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — The Raiders opened their 2012 baseball season with a 4-2 win at Wells on April 13 before vacation and followed it up with a 6-5 home win over Poland on the Friday. The 2-0 start is just what Fryeburg Academy Coach Rich Ela hoped, as it gives the still young juniors confidence and an understanding that their attention to detail can result in good results. Facing a one-run deficit heading into the bottom of the seventh, the Raiders rallied for two runs to steal the win. The game ended when Andrew Berg laid down a bunt and safety squeezed Kirk Hubbard home to defeat Poland see RAIDERS page 18

Clippers extend nation’s longest win streak BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Kennett High baseball team learned first hand that Portsmouth is a very good baseball team and worthy of the longest winning streak in the nation. The Clippers scored runs in every inning on their way to a 12-0 five inning mercy rule victory on Friday. With the win Portsmouth improved to 4-0 in Division II play and is now tied with Martensdale-St. Marys (Iowa) for the national record. Martensdale-St. Marys, which broke Portsmouth’s record last year, will begin its season with its streak intact next month. Portsmouth can break the 87-game record tomorrow at Windham. The Clippers have not lost since a Division II quarterfinal game against Hollis-Brookline in 2007. “There weren’t too many highlights from our perspective,” Bob Burns, Eagles’ head coach, said. “I’m

not sure if you’ve ever walked into a buzz-saw, but I’d imagine it felt quite a bit like this. They’re very good, no holes in their line-up and if you make a mistake they punch you.” Kennett, who was held to four hits on the afternoon (Portsmouth had 12, including six for extra bases), had its best offensive threat in the first inning. With one out and Alex Milford on first, Joh Drew executed a perfect hit-and-run to put runners on the corners. Portsmouth was able to get out of the jam unscathed with back-to-back looking strikeouts. The Clippers sent at least seven batters to the plate in every inning, scoring two runs in the first inning, five in the second, three in the third and two in the fourth. Sean Perley was saddled with the loss, working the first three innings while Scott Conner threw the fourth. “It’s tough to pitch to those guys,” Burns said. “When you don’t get the deuce over, you have to throw the

fastball and everybody over there hits the fastball. They hammered the ball pretty good.” Burns is impressed with Portsmouth’s winning streak. “It’s a very consistently successful program,” he said. “We’ve had some teams here that were pretty good where we won the state championship, but then you have to rebuild a little. Everybody’s still waiting for Portsmouth to rebuild.” The Eagles, who are now 4-2, were rained out at Berlin yesterday. The game has been rescheduled for May 10. KHS still has two more games scheduled for the remainder of this week. Weather-permitting Kennett is slated to host Bishop Brady (2-4) on Wednesday and then travel to Sanborn (2-1) on Friday. Brady is coming off a 10-5 home defeat against Merrimack Valley on Friday has lost three of its last four games.

Eagles continue to make strides in track and field BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — School vacation week took a toll on the Kennett High track team’s roster, but despite missing over half of its roster the Eagles were still competitive in three meets last week. At Kingswood on Tuesday, the KHS boys finished second to Plymouth (97-61) but ahead of Goffstown (who only brought a boys teams), Trinity and host Kingswood while the Kennett girls also had a second place showing, finishing 17 points behind Plymouth but well ahead of Kingswood and Trinity. “It was a nice meet,” Bernie Livingston, Eagles’ head coach, said. “We were missing 48 kids which is a little over half our team but we still had 42 boys and girls. It’s a shame because a lot of kids missed out on three meets.” Earning top five placings for the Kennett boys were: 110 hurdles: Zack Hill, first, in a season-best 19.2 seconds. 200 meters: Thomas Chant, fourth, 26.4. Discus: Darien Vaughan, first, 98’. Javelin: Silas Berrier, first, 128’8”.

Triple Jump: Davison, first, in a personal record 36’9.75”; and Ben Zimmer, fifth, 33’3.25”. Long Jump: Davison, first, 17’9.25”; and Mason, second, 17’6”. 800 meters: Peter Haine, third, 2:13.8. 3200 meters: Malclom Badger, third, 12:04; and Ryan Kenny, fourth, 12:06. Plymouth, who was not on school vacation, was able to pull away by sweeping all five spots in the high jump which gave it 16 points from one event. For the girls: 4X100 Relay: Emmaline Ashe, Jennifer Vizard, Gracie Ryan and Gigi Miller, first, 54:07. Long Jump: Ryan, second, 14’7.5”. 110 Hurdles: Hannah Kaslow, fifth, 19.4.

In the end the results were not favorable to MWV as Oyster River took the game 13-7. The contest was much closer than the score indicates, and showed the MWV coaches the potential this talented team has. The MWV U15 team was able to salvage the day for the club. An overall strong performance by the entire squad resulted in a 9-1 victory. This extremely talented group of young men played their hearts out. This team is fast and truly emphasized the motto of the sport, “fastest game on two feet”. Early goals by the attack loosened the team’s nervousness. They quickly settled down and the midfield began controlling the center of the field on offense and on defense. The defensive group continually pushed Oyster River’s offense away from the goal allowing many long range shots easily handled by the goalie. Ball movement from defense to offense resulted in many scoring opportunities, and when quick scoring opportunities did not present themselves, the offense was patient and waited for the right moment to attack. A good start to a long season.
A beautiful Sunday welcomed the start of the 2012 Spring Lacrosse season April 13 as fans lined the fields to watch the MWV Lacrosse Club entertain teams from Merrimack Valley and Oyster River. The MWV Lacrosse U9 team excelled in its season-opener on Sunday even though it was the first lacrosse game ever played by the majority of the players. The scoreboard did not reflect how well the home side hustled or the improvement players made over the course of the game. Merrimack Valley came out on top 14-9. Now that the Eagles have a game under their belts they’re ready for their game next Sunday against Timberlane. The U-11 team opened its schedule against last year’s tournament nemesis Oyster River. Both teams started the game running and put together some nice passing combinations along with stellar defensive work. At the end of the first half Oyster River held a slim 3-1 lead. The second half began with Oyster River controlling the offensive end of the field. Slick footwork and stamina were the keys to opening up the game and at the end of three it was 8-2 and the final score was Oyster River 10 and the valley boys 4. Overall, the coaches were pleased with the play of the team, and stated that conditioning and fundamentals were on the practice slate for the upcoming weeks. The U13 team played a solid game against Oyster River. Down early in the game by a few goals, it came back to be down by one by the end of the first quarter. The team, a little shorthanded, played solid all game, hustled hard and was still in the game by half time. Solid play by the attack kept the pressure on the other team. The three midfield lines played with gut and determination, as they tried to get the ball into the attack’s sticks or get a strong shot off. The defense, led by a rookie goalie, stopped a very talented Oyster River team. A few breakdowns on defense allowed easy goals for the opposition, but many strong clears by the defense resulted in MWV getting easy goals of their own.

“I hope that you and a guest will be able to join us for the presentation,” Marolt said. “If not, we will ensure that your award is sent to you. ...Again, our congratulations!” “You bet I’ll be there,” Gregory said, smiling. Gregory thanks the community for its continued support and dedication to the program. “Those efforts directly contributed to the team receiving this award,” he said. MWVST joins some pretty select company as the list of previous winners has a number of heavy hitters on it. Past recipients since the award was created in 1999 are: 1999 — Ski Club Vail; 2000 — Park City Ski Education Foundation; 2001 — Sunday River Ski Resort 2002 — Winter Park; 2003 — NYSEF; 2004 — Mammoth Mountain; 2005 — Park City Ski Education Foundation; 2006 — Squaw Valley Ski Team; 2007 — Burke Mountain Academy; 2008 — Buck Hill Ski Racing Club; 2009 — Squaw Valley Ski Team; 2010 — Ski and Snowboard Club Vail; 2011 — Aspen Valley Ski & Snowboard Club; and now, 2012 — Mount Washington Valley Ski Team. MWVST has been in existence since 1982. There are roughly 92 skiers in the program. Gregory said he knew the team was being nominated since he was informed last month by Dirk Gouwens, the eastern director for USSA, that the team was being recommended for the award. Part of the criteria for the award is the advancement of skiers and MWVST certainly fits that criteria having recently produced U.S. Ski Team members Leanne Smith and Ace Tarberry along with collegiate All Americas Danielle Shannon, Peter Ostroski, Alec Tarberry and Mike Cremeno. Plus, alumni such as Justin Chandler and Jessie McAleer are still involved in the sport as the program director for the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club in Telluride, Colo. and as a former professional racer and now coach, respectively. “I think another thing that caught the eastern director’s attention was the number of races we put on,” Gregory said. “He was impressed with the amount we host as a club and that we do so much with so little.” According to its website, “The MWV Ski Team exists to provide full time and weekend coaching for all levels of skiers and racers. Approximately twothirds of our income is derived from fund-raising and race income. Only a third of our funding is derived from tuition. Without these fund-raising efforts our tuition costs would need to be greatly increased. The justification of our costs is the quality and quantity of coaching provided. On snow training is provided six days a week and sometimes seven. A wide variety of programs is offered and we have stressed the

fact that our program is open to youth of all abilities and goals. The MWV Ski Team provides training and racing experiences for all levels of skiers and our goal is to help each of our athletes realize their goals whatever they may be. We cannot stress strongly enough our commitment to this idea and our record in this area is exemplary. The improvements in both racing technique and results, and in general skiing ability as well, of all of our participants is strong testimony to out commitment. “A more important factor than ski racing in our program is the day to day involvement of our coaching staff in building a strong foundation of character, sportsmanship, and discipline in the young men and women who are involved in our program,” the site continues. “Ski racing is but one integral part of growing up and, while we provide the finest training and coaching for ski racing, we also strive to reinforce some of the important values that will enable our athletes to maximize their potential throughout their lives, such as perseverance and respect for others. Over the years, the valley ski areas have been more than generous in allowing use of their facilities in order to promote skiing and racing in the Mt. Washington Valley. They have made available to our program the Valley Pass which allows us to ski: Attitash, Cranmore, Wildcat, and Black at considerable savings. The benefits of being able to utilize the tremendous variety of terrain and conditions at four different ski areas is invaluable. All four ski areas are used extensively throughout the course of the season and afford us some of the best training in the East.” The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) is the national governing body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding. Founded in 1905, the century-old organization provides leadership and direction for tens of thousands of young skiers and snowboarders from over 400 member clubs who share an Olympic dream. The USSA and its local clubs coordinate nationwide programs in seven distinctly different Olympic sports -- alpine, cross country, disabled, freestyle, ski jumping, Nordic combined, and snowboarding. It is responsible for all aspects of competitive skiing and snowboarding from grassroots programs through elite international teams, including training and fielding the annual U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding, as well as the Olympic teams in skiing and snowboarding. The USSA is composed of over 30,000 athletes, officials and coaches, with a network of over 100,000 parents, volunteers and supporters helping create opportunities for young athletes. The USSA is the most diverse of any Olympic Sports organization with six different athletic sport programs that account for nearly 50 percent of the Olympic Winter Games events.

this past Friday. Hubbard reached third after singling Billy Rascoe, who doubled ahead of him, to third. Ian McFawn drove Rascoe home to tie the game and reached third when Hubbard singled. Poland walked Kyle Bonner to load the bases and set up the double-play opportunity, and the stage was set: one out with the bases loaded. Berg laid down a bunt just enough towards the third baseline to make the pitcher’s throw to the plate difficult, and Hubbard reached the plate as the pitchers throw sailed too high for the Poland catcher to make a clean catch. An excited Fryeburg Academy baseball team ran from the dugout to greet Hubbard at home plate to celebrate the win. The Raiders other four runs came in the third inning. Billy Rascoe doubled into the right center gap to drive in two runs. Kyle Bonner followed Rascoe’s rap with a two-run double of his own. At the time, the pair of tworun doubles gave the Raiders a 4-1 lead. Poland fought back with two runs in the fifth, and then two runs in the sixth to gain a 5-4 lead. Coach Ela lifted a tiring Andrew Rascoe in the fifth inning as Poland gained momentum. McFawn came in and finished the final inning and a third to pick up the win. At Wells before vacation, the Raiders jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two innings, scoring one in the first and two in the second. Andrew Rascoe earned the win with a complete game. Rascoe gave up one earned run on four hits and three walks. Rascoe struck out eight. The Raiders gained their lead on some early season control and fielding issues for Wells. The Raiders runs in the first two innings came on three walks and two errors. The real story of the Raiders’ success was their ability to make big defensive plays when needed. In the fifth inning Wells had runners on first and second with one out and were poised to rally. A lazy pop fly hit to shallow left field behind third base appeared destined to drop in for a hit when shortstop Billy Rascoe laid out and made a diving catch for the second out. In the seventh inning Ian McFawn laid out and made a diving catch on a ball sinking in front of him in center field. The play kept the leadoff hitter off base in an inning when the Warriors managed a run. TENNIS from page 14
“The No. 2 and 3 doubles were probably two of the more exciting matches of my career,” Bailey said. “I’ve got to give the guys credit for the way they played and battled throughout. I told the kids beforehand and afterwards that this match might have playoff implications down the road.” The excitement continued Wednesday for the Eagles in Plymouth. KHS was without Bentley and Miller, but was equal to the challenge. In singles, MacDonald lost 8-6; Blakely won 8-6 after trailing 5-4; Nicky Sullivan, who returned to the line-up with an ailing shoulder, was forced to serve underhanded — and it worked, won 8-1; Gregston won 8-1; Lucas Tinkham lost 9-8 (7-4 in the tie-break); and Ryan Burroughs lost 8-2. Tied 3-3 in doubles, Plymouth won at No. 1, beating Blakely/Gregston, 8-5; MacDonald/Sullivan won 8-2; and Tinkham/Tanat Thanjai trailed 5-1, 5-4, 6-5, before winning the final three games for the 8-6 victory. “It was a pretty nerve-wracking week,” Bailey said, laughing. “I told the guys on the bus afterward I don’t need anymore gray hairs.” Kennett faced a solid Pembroke squad Friday in a match that all boiled down to the doubles yet again. “I thought that was probably our best match of the week,” Bailey said. “They were as good if not better than Kingswood collectively as a team.” MacDonald, playing No. 1 for the second straight match due to Bentley’s absence, lost 8-3; Blakely lost 8-2; Sullivan, still serving underhanded, trailed 6-4 before rallying to win 8-6; Gregston lost 8-6; Miller won 8-1; and Tinkham won 8-5. Kennett swept the three doubles to take the match. At No. 3, Miller/Tinkham won 8-2; at No. 2, MacDonald/Sullivan won 8-6; and at No. 1, Blakley/ Gregston won 9-8 (7-5 in the tie-break). Kennett will face a stiff test tomorrow with a match at Bedford (5-1).

Roger Polson Bean, 89, of Fryeburg, Maine died peacefully in his sleep at home on Sunday, April 15, after a long life well lived. He was born in Saco, Maine on Aug. 31, 1922, the son of Catherine Polson and Roger Joel Bean, attended local schools and graduated from Thornton Academy in 1941. After an all too brief time at the University of Maine, he was inducted into the Air Force where he was trained as a Weather Observer and Radio Sonde Operator, and served mainly in India and China until the end of World War II. Upon discharge in December of 1945 he returned to Maine and continued his studies at University of Maine Orono, receiving a degree in mechanical engineering. On June 15, he married the love of his life, Marilyn Allard, and they spent nearly 65 very happy years together. Their union was blessed with a son, Joel, and a daughter, Kathryn, who were a source of great joy and pride throughout his life. Upon graduation he was employed by Shell Oil Company as a sales representative and later by Good Company in the same capacity. While he enjoyed the work, it necessitated several re-locations and a good deal of traveling, so in order to spend more time with his family he decided on a career change that proved serendipitous. He returned to college, ultimately acquired a master’s degree in science education from Colby College and joined the faulty at Fryeburg Academy. Roger often said this was the milieu for which he was meant. He enjoyed the interaction with the students and many of them in return remember him as a real gentleman who treated them with respect, cool and calm (no matter what), and a familiar figure on campus with his tweed jackets and every present pipe. A life-long fisherman and hunter, Roger fostered a love of the outdoors in his children. He developed a great interest in golf and together with the other members of his regular fourEATON from page 19
The sixth annual plant swap will be held May 27 at 9:30 a.m. at Linda and Dave Sorensen’s farm, BerryKnoll, off the Brownfield Road. As you start your seeds, plant an extra flat of seedlings to swap. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to swap 6 basil plants for 6 tomato plants, or a few squash seedlings for a few pepper plants? Or swap some marigold for some zinnias? Or lettuce for morning glories? You get the idea. Lets save money and have fun, too. Needless to say, the swap will include plant divisions and other good things. Mark the date down now. We really do need a new deputy town clerk/tax collector at the town hall. The person must be an Eaton resident. The
some, played every day that the weather permitted at the Lake Kezar Country Club (and some days when it didn’t). The friendships developed lasted a lifetime. He was an artist and craftsman, and could turn his hand to almost everything — a man for all seasons. Throughout his long life he was a voracious reader, and this, too, was an interest he shared with all his family. In retirement he finally found the time to travel, and he and Marilyn were able to cover the globe and visit many of the places of which he had read, as well as locations in which he had been stationed in the Far East. But he was never happier than when he returned to Fryeburg and took up his regular routine of spending time with family and friends and enjoying the camaraderie of daily encounters with other community members over breakfast at the local café. He was predeceased by his parents, sisters Barbara Moreland and Margaret Emmons, and his son Joel. He is survived by his wife Marilyn, devoted daughter Kathryn SB Davis of Kennebunk, granddaughter Elizabeth Davis of Portland and grandson Aaron Davis, his wife Anne and their three children Owen, Vivian and Eddie of Falmouth, and Joel’s widow Barbara Keppel Bean of Sierra Vista, Ariz. Roger will be greatly missed and long remembered and the world will be a lesser place without him. At his request, there will be no funeral service. A celebration of his life will take place on Saturday, April 28, at the Fryeburg Academy Performing Arts Center from 9:30 to 11 a.m. All are welcome to join us for a cup of coffee and his favorite blueberry muffins as we share memories of his life. If desired, donations can be made in Roger’s memory to Fryeburg Academy, 745 Main Street, Fryeburg, ME, 04037. Arrangements are made with Wood Funeral Home, Fryeburg. Online condolences may be expressed to the family at www.woodfuneralhome.org. hours are every Monday from 9 to 11 a.m. and every other Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. During tax seasons more hours are of course necessary. Call the town hall at 447-2840 or see Suzanne Raiche for more details. Bring in some books for the Eaton Village Store Function Room in the back. We would like to build the stock back up. Just bring them in and put them on the shelves. Summer is coming soon and people love to pick up a quick read. Sandy Thoms is trying to plan a few cooking classes at her house for the spring. These are always so much fun. Call her at 447-3417 if you are interested and she will give us some good dates. You learn so much, eat wonderful food, drink a little wine, and have a ball. Contact Nancy Williams at 447-5635.

Bernard E. Coit
Bernard E. Coit, husband of Barbara A. (Amee) Coit, son of the late Edgar W. Coit and Sara M. (King) Coit, died peacefully at home on April 22, 2012. An 11th generation New Englander, Bernie was born Aug. 14, 1920 in Suffield, Conn., was raised in Norfolk, Mass., and lived his adult life in Greenland, Freedom, and Newington. Bernie served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II stationed in the Aleutian Islands. Bernie managed Sunny Acres poultry farm in Greenland from 19481964 and worked as an electrical shop planner at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, retiring in July 1980. Bernie loved nature, particularly the mountains and lakes. He climbed mountains until age 82 and spent many happy hours canoeing, camping, hiking, and sleeping out under the stars. Bernie enjoyed family gatherings and the ever-lively horseshoes, bocce, badminton, and croquet competitions. A bright, self-educated man, Bernie was an avid reader with a vast reservoir of knowledge. He rarely forgot anything he learned. Bernie loved being right and hated being wrong. He was passionate about chocolate, homemade ice cream, and
most anything laced with sugar — his only vice. An engineer by nature if not by training, Bernie was the consummate handyman who loved to putter and make something out of nothing. Bernie was a reserved, sensitive man who said little, observed everything, and cared deeply for his family. He died as carefully as he lived. Bernie is survived by his wife, Barbara A. Coit; his four children, Marcia L. Coit-Brock, DVM, and her husband, Doug, Gail E. Green, DVM, and her husband, Peter, Russell B. Coit and his wife, Barbara M., and Michael B. Coit and his wife, Sandy; his grandchildren, Alanna and Lilianne Brock; Seth, Brittany and Rachel Green. Katharine, Elizabeth, and Gregory Coit and Sara and Sean Coit; his sister, Hazel Sheldon and her husband, Ed; and many nieces and nephews. His siblings Everett L., Clarence F., Emily M., and Ella E. Coit predeceased Bernie. Per Bernie’s wishes, there will be no formal services. A private gathering will be held at the convenience of the family. The Cremation Society of NH is in charge of the arrangements.

“ I knew my hearing was not good, so I went to an audiologist. I was not satisfied with all the talk and prices and just said “oh well”. Then I went to Dale Lalone; a real nice person and very understanding. He fitted me with an aid that was right for me. What a pleasure to hear so much better, go out with friends and not pretend to have heard the conversation and sometimes smile at the wrong time. I am with it again.” —Audrey Keniston, Portland, Maine

DAILY CROSSWORD TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
by Lynn Johnston
by Scott Adams
By Holiday Mathis good to know. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You often take on so much that you feel overwhelmed by your life. Arrange things so that you can win. However small a victory may be, it proves something: You’re a winner. If you can win small, you can win big. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like finding new talented people, and in the weeks to come, you will become a fan of someone who fits the description. Your interest will open doors for you eventually, but right now, it’s just fun to see where this leads. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be dealing with two categories: things that cost you money, and things that make you money. You’ll rid yourself of material things that aren’t worth the price you pay to keep them. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve already proved that you could turn your vaguest longings into a concrete plan. You’re at that place again, experiencing a fuzzy, unfocused kind of wanting. Can you articulate this desire yet? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A good coach won’t let the team stay at a subpar level. You’ll be the kind of coach who isolates your team’s problems, however unpleasant, and figures out how to solve them. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 24). You’re idealistic when it comes to relationships, and yet people rise to your high standards, and you’ll be thrilled with what happens next. Professionally, you’ll branch out to include the untried. May and September show an income spike. You’ll adventure in June. October brings a new interest and group of friends. Love signs are Leo and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 29, 50, 24 and 17.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). An adventure is coming together. These are the earliest planning stages, and you’ll do all you can to clarify your options. If possible, see things in person. Conduct face-to-face interviews instead of calling. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Knowledge can be like a light that turns on in your mind, or it can be a structure that complicates matters by casting confusing shadows. In the latter case, keep studying until you have your breakthrough. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even if the old methods are working, you can’t help but wonder whether another way would work even better. You’re bold, and you’ll probably be the first among your friends and colleagues to try something new. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Suddenly, something doesn’t feel quite right about your actions and activities. You have to ask yourself: Are you fulfilling someone else’s dreams for yourself instead of being dedicated to your own? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You love a good story, and you’ll hear one today. Soak in every detail. There’s more to learn than you’ll be able to understand on the first listen. The tale will continue to develop for the next few days. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). According to you, any amount of time you spend looking for things is a waste. You expect yourself to be organized enough to know where your personal items are at all times, and that’s pretty much how it goes today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone will make a sacrifice on your behalf. Even though you don’t want to put anyone out, this gesture helps you understand your importance to others, and that feels

Today is Tuesday, April 24, the 115th day of 2012. There are 251 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 24, 1962, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology achieved the first satellite relay of a television signal, using NASA’s Echo 1 balloon satellite to bounce a video image of the letters “M.I.T.” transmitted from Camp Parks, Calif., to Westford, Mass. On this date: In 1792, the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise”, was composed by Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle. In 1800, Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress. In 1898, Spain declared war on the United States. (The United States responded in kind the next day.) In 1915, what’s regarded as the start of the Armenian genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople. In 1916, some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Rising by seizing several key sites in Dublin. In 1932, in the Free State of Prussia, the Nazi Party gained a plurality of seats in parliamentary elections. In 1953, British statesman Winston Churchill was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. In 1960, rioting erupted in Biloxi, Miss., after black protesters staging a “wade-in” at a whitesonly beach were attacked by a crowd of hostile whites. In 1970, the People’s Republic of China launched its first satellite, which kept transmitting a song, “The East is Red.” In 1980, the United States launched an unsuccessful attempt to free the American hostages in Iran, a mission that resulted in the deaths of eight U.S. servicemen. One year ago: Pope Benedict XVI offered an Easter Sunday prayer for diplomacy to prevail over warfare in Libya and for citizens of the Middle East to build a new society.

TATTOO TRIBUTE DRAWS FIRE ONLINE FROM DISTANT COUSIN
DEAR ABBY: Two weeks ago I got a memorial tattoo done for my beloved grandma. It’s on my arm and says “in loving memory” at the top. Gram’s portrait is underneath, and a beautiful poem my grandpa wrote for her is under the portrait. The tattoo artist did a phenomenal job! It looks just like her and I was thrilled with the results. The problem is, I posted a picture on Facebook of the tattoo, and out of the blue a distant cousin sent me a message telling me that the tattoo was “selfish and attention-seeking behavior”! He said he was hurt in more ways than one because of it. Abby, I don’t understand. I love this tattoo. I wanted to honor the woman who meant so much to me. Did I honor her the wrong way like he says? Was I selfish? I’m so hurt, I guess I’m just looking for some input into this. My friends and family say he’s jealous and not to give it another thought, but I’m obsessing. Please help. -- HONORING GRANDMA DEAR HONORING GRANDMA: Please accept my sympathy for your obviously heartfelt loss. Your family and friends are correct that your cousin’s comments are out of line. You are not responsible for your cousin’s feelings, so stop obsessing. Whatever has hurt him “in more ways than one” is not your tattoo, or anything you posted on Facebook. You say he is distant. Keep it that way and concentrate on something positive like the fact that you have honored your grandmother’s memory. Then go on and build a happy and constructive life. I’m sure that is what she would want you to
DEAR ABBY: My neighbors’ teenage sons ask to borrow our lawn mower and other yard tools so they can make money cutting the grass for other neighbors. What do we do? -LOVE THY NEIGHBOR DEAR NEIGHBOR: How responsible are the boys? If they can be trusted with your lawn mower and other yard tools and you’re kind-hearted, allow them to use the items with the understanding that they will be returned to you in the same condition in which they were borrowed. Then have them cut YOUR lawn as a way of showing their appreciation. DEAR ABBY: My co-worker “Oscar” is a grouchy, bitter man. His cubicle is close to mine, so I can hear everything he says. He constantly talks about other employees and even about the owners of the company. Oscar’s general bitterness and poor attitude constantly bring me down. I have tried tuning him out, unsuccessfully. I don’t like being subjected to this daily, but I don’t know what I can do about it. Please help. -- NEEDS POSITIVITY IN LEXINGTON, KY. DEAR NEEDS POSITIVITY: The first thing you should do is tell Oscar that you can hear every word he’s saying because he may not know that he’s being overheard. Tell him his conversations are distracting and ask him to stop. If he does not comply, complain to a supervisor. And if your complaint is not acted upon, bring headphones, if it’s allowed, so you won’t be subjected to the daily dose of negativity.

Survivors of Suicide group working on quilt project CONWAY — Survivors of suicide loss are invited to join together to honor the memory of loved ones by taking part in the Vaughan Community Service Survivors of Suicide Support Group, Lifekeeper Memory Quilt project. Each quilt square is created in memory of a loved one lost to suicide. The completed quilt will be publicly displayed at local and national events to put a human face on the tragedy of suicide, and the devastating toll it has taken on our community. As the quilt is stitched together survivors are reminded that they are not alone — there are thousands of others who also feel the pain and loneliness of losing a loved one to suicide. Making a quilt square is easy to do — no sewing is required. To get started, contact Denise Leighton, Vaughan Administrator at 356-2324. In addition, the Survivors of Suicide Support Group meets every second Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. at Vaughan Community Service, 2521 White Mountain Highway (Route 16) in North Conway.

UNH Cooperative Extension
Spring Care of Strawberries
Proper care of strawberry patches over the next few weeks is essential notes Bill Lord of Carroll County Cooperative Extension. The unusual weather this spring has plants waking up a couple weeks or more ahead of the norm. If your strawberry patch is still mulched with straw or pine needles, Lord recommends taking it off the plants as soon as possible. Leaving mulch on too late will stress plants and reduce yields significantly. Mulch should be placed in the aisles and tucked in under the outer edges of the plant row to help keep fruits clean. This practice prevents one important fruit rot disease from infecting fruits. There is still a high risk of frost damage to strawberries, a situation made worse by the early spring, but Lord notes that frost control is relatively easy. If a frost is predicted, mulch
can be placed back over the plants for the night, then carefully removed again the next day. An alternative option is to water plants during frosting events. An overhead sprinkler is turned on when temperatures reach 33 degrees F or so, and is applied continuously until any ice that forms is melted the next morning. Unfortunately, most frosting conditions start well before dawn so some sleeplessness is likely. Alarms triggered by low temperatures are available. Lord warns that the coldest part of the day is just after sunrise, so don’t think that once the horizon is brightening that you can let your guard down. For information on growing strawberries or other gardening advise including soil testing, contact the Carroll County Extension office at 447-3834 or visit their website at http://extension.unh. edu/Counties/Carroll/Carroll.htm.
