iBrain can read your mind SAN DIEGO — Already surrounded by machines that allow him, painstakingly, to communicate, the physicist Stephen Hawking last summer donned what looked like a rakish black headband that held a feather-light device the size of a small matchbox. Called the iBrain, this simple-looking contraption is part of an experiment that aims to allow Dr. Hawking — long paralyzed by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease — to communicate by merely thinking. The iBrain is part of a new generation of portable neural devices and algorithms intended to monitor and diagnose conditions like sleep apnea, depression and autism. Invented by a team led by Philip Low, a 32-year-old neuroscientist who is chief executive of NeuroVigil, a company based in San Diego, the iBrain is gaining attention as a possible alternative to expensive sleep labs that use rubber and plastic caps riddled with dozens of electrodes and usually require a patient to stay overnight. About the Hawking experiment, Dr. Low said, “The idea is to see if Stephen can use his mind to create a consistent and repeatable pattern that a computer can translate into, say, a word or letter or a command for a computer.”


I’ve got the brain of a four year old. I’ll bet he was glad to be rid of it.” —Groucho Marx

Obama: GOP budget plan embodies ‘radical vision’



noun; An environmental cue, as the length of daylight, that helps to regulate the cycles of an organism’s biological clock. — courtesy

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

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — President Obama opened a full-frontal assault Tuesday on the federal budget adopted by House Republicans, condemning it as a “Trojan horse” that would greatly deepen inequality in the United States, and painting it as the manifesto of a party that had swung radi-

cally to the right. Listing what he said would be draconian cuts to college scholarships, medical research, national parks and even weather forecasts, Obama said the Republican budget was “so far to the right, it makes the Contract With America” — Newt Gingrich’s legislative

insurgency of 1994 — “look like the New Deal.” Obama’s scathing attack, in a lunchtime speech to editors and reporters from The Associated Press, was part of a broad indictment of the Republican Party that included the president’s likely opponent in the fall, Mitt Romney.

A taste of hope in Mogadishu

MOGADISHU, Somalia (NY Times) — Up until a few weeks ago, all visitors who landed at Aden Abdulle International Airport in Mogadishu were handed a poorly copied, barely readable sheet that asked for name, address — and caliber of weapon. No more. Now visitors get a bright yellow welcome card that has no mention of guns and several choices for reason of visit, including a new category: holiday. Outside, on Mogadishu’s streets, the thwatthwat-thwat hammering sound that rings out in the mornings is not the clatter of machine guns but the sound of actual hammers. Construction

is going on everywhere — new hospitals, new homes, new shops, a six-story hotel and even sports bars (albeit serving cappuccino and fruit juice instead of beer). Painters are painting again, and Somali singers just held their first concert in more than two decades at the National Theater, which used to be a weapons depot and then a national toilet. Up next: a televised, countrywide talent show, essentially “Somali Idol.” Mogadishu, Somalia’s capital, which had been reduced to rubble during 21 years of civil war, becoming a byword for anarchy, is making a remarkable comeback.

Libyan militias turn to politics

TRIPOLI, Libya (NY Times) — The militia leaders who have turned post-Qaddafi Libya into a patchwork of semiautonomous fiefs are now plunging into politics, raising fears that their armed brigades could undermine elections intended to lay the foundation of a new democracy. The militia leader from Zintan who controls the airport here in the capital has exchanged his uniform for a suit and tie and now talks about running for office — with his 1,200 armed men at his back. The head of Tripoli’s military council is starting a political party, and the military council in Benghazi is preparing its own slate of candidates for local office. Regional militias and the ruling Transitional National Council have already blocked the city of Bani Walid, once a bastion of support for Col. Muammar elQaddafi, from choosing its local government. Other militia leaders are volunteering their armed support as the military wings of newly formed parties. Five months after Colonel Qaddafi’s death, Libyans are counting on the ritual of the ballot box to end four decades of rule by brute force.

County officials blast construction contractor BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — County officials had a number of complaints for the construction company that was supposed to fix a jail wall that’s been tipping away from the rest of the building. Patrick Beloin, the owner of Patandy Construction, of Rochester, said he’d fix his company’s mistakes but the work wouldn’t prevent the wall from tipping again because the problems are structural. The gable-end wall began peeling off the rest of the jail in the summer of 2010, even though the building is less than a decade old. The faulty wall is in the administration’s end of the building. It has nothing to do with the jail break that occurred in December. The areas involved are two offices, a break room and the women’s locker room. The county recently settled with the jail’s designer, a company called SMRT, for $45,000, most of which is for repairs and the rest would be used for legal fees. Corrections superintendent Jason Johnson had a number of complaints regarding the work Patandy Construction did during the week of March 19. Johnson alleged Patandy workers left a razor blade on the female employees’ locker room floor, used foul language in the administration office, failed to cover office furniture with a drop cloth, made a 12-inch scratch in the captain’s desk and made a scratch on the side of Johnson’s truck. Patandy workers parked so close to Johnson’s truck that Johnson had to get in his truck from the passenger side. In addition,

Johnson had some technical complaints about the work itself. Originally, the discussion was going to be in non-public session, but Beloin chose to discuss the issues in an open meeting. “If no one tells me it’s wrong I can’t fix it,” said Belion. “It sounds like I have two 10-minute fixes.” By Thursday morning, Johnson said Belion completed the job to specs. Belion explained that some walls were too crooked to hold brackets. None of the work would last, he added. “It’s cosmetic, what we did,” said Belion. “We put a little makeup over things to make it look good but if the structural things aren’t tended to, the problems will be there next year.” Commission chairman David Sorensen wondered why workers didn’t put down a drop cloth. Belion said they moved the desk away from the wall. They didn’t think a drop cloth was necessary because the job was unlikely to make much dust. He didn’t understand how the desk got scratched because it was covered in papers. Belion confessed that he was the one who was cursing. Beloin said he stopped using bad language when jail officials complained. Further, Belion said he came back to the jail the day after the job was complete to make sure things were OK. But he couldn’t get back in because Johnson was unavailable. As for Johnson’s truck, Belion doubted his workers were at fault but he’d take responsibility anyway. “If you think we done it, I’d gladly turn it in to my insurance company,” said Belion.

Support Eagle Academy director article To the editor: I am writing to encourage support for full funding of the position of student advocate/director of Eagle Academy at Kennett High School. An affirmative vote for Warrant Article 16 will replace moneys formerly received and no longer available through the grant process. The student advocate and director of Eagle Academy is significantly responsible for Kennett High School’s very low dropout rate (currently 0.11 percent). The work of this department is critical because the student population it serves is at high risk of academic failure. Many in this population have very challenging living arrangements; some have been homeless. The student advocate works on many levels and in many arenas to help students stay in school and stay on track, by work-

ing with the town welfare office; helping students network with DCYF, Healthy Kids, and local non-profits; assisting students within the court/juvenile justice system; arranging for tutoring; and working with local employers so that work schedules dovetail with Eagle Academy hours, allowing students can stay in school and maintain their jobs. Compared to the other warrant articles in this Tuesday’s ballot, Warrant Article 16 is not a lot of money, but the return is priceless! As I think about this, I am struck by a Dietrich Bonhoeffer quote, “The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.” I urge the residents of Conway to support Kennett’s student advocate and director of Eagle Academy. Thank you. Gil Healy North Conway

Endorsing Bob Drinkhall for selectman To the editor: I am very pleased to endorse Bob Drinkall for Selectman. I believe Mr. Drinkall (along with candidate Steve Porter) will provide a badly needed financially oriented perspective to the Board of Selectman. Bob, who is his own person, does not deal in thinly veiled behind-thescenes activity focused on special interests groups. On the contrary, his concern is for all of Conway’s citizens — including the young, the elderly, the retired, the self-employed, and those involved in health services, business and education. Bob, an experienced

businessperson in his own right, is known for assiduous research and hard work and one can take comfort that when confronted with a tough issue, he will ask all the right questions, especially with regard to those matters that have tax implications. Moreover, he has been a member of the budget committee, the planning board, and the board of selectman and is fully versed in the way the town is governed. If you are concerned with unchecked spending and runaway taxes, I ask you to strongly consider voting for Bob Drinkall for selectman. Ted Sares Conway

Moderates Rise!

Did you feel better when you felt that your United States Senators and members of Congress did not feel compelled to follow a strict party line? I did. I appreciated that in New England we had folks like Warren Rudman, Olympia Snowe, Jim Jeffords, George Aiken and others who used their individual judgment in making decisions that were good for the region and for the country. These decisions may or may not have been in accord with their political party of record. If you are not awake yet relative to the polarization of politics in this Country, I hope that the last week’s news has awakened you. No citizen should be silent or uninformed: Too much is going on. Let’s start with the decision of Olympia Snowe not to seek reelection to the U.S. Senate. It is a tragedy for moderates. It is a tragedy for the loss of independence. Olympia Snowe was one of 14 moderates in both parties that agreed years ago to try to work together on judicial nominations. Strict party line politics had led to a situation where judicial nominations could not be brought forward and Federal Court judge positions simply remained unfilled due to political gamesmanship. Senator Snowe was one of the few Republican Senators to vote for Elena Kagan for the U.S. Supreme Court. She understood Judge Kagan has unquestionable legal ability, background and ethics. She did not allow her own personal judicial philosophy to stop her from voting for Justice Kagan, as did almost all members of her party. With Senators Snowe’s decision not to run, only five of those original 14 moderates remain in the Senate. One of them is John McCain, who appears no longer willing to cross party lines for much of anything. The second issue that grabbed headlines this week involved contraceptives nationally and state laws regarding abortions. The tone of things makes me wonder if in a few years the U.S. Senate will be voting to rescind women’s right to vote. It is that bad. First, there was the debate in Virginia. Legislation was introduced in Virginia that would have required pregnant women in their first trimester of pregnancy, who desired an abortion, to undergo an ultrasound, involving an invasive “wand ultrasound.” Essentially, the State was going to require women (and that’s right folks these treatments involve only women) to be penetrated by a foreign object as a pre-requirement to obtaining an abortion. At its most extreme, one could argue that the state was going to require penetration of a body cavity in order to secure the right to an abortion. In any other situation, such an unauthorized penetration would be a felony. Then there was the whole national contraception debate in the United States Senate. If I had not heard it and seen it, I would not have believed it. Under the guise of what is or is not to be covered in employee-sponsored insurance policies, and as a rider to a highway authorization bill, Sena-

tor Blunt offered an amendment that would allow individual employers, on moral grounds, to include or not include coverage for whatever benefits they like or dislike. The most cited example was the Catholic Church being required to provide group coverage to its employees for contraceptives. However, what if I as an employer don’t believe smoking is moral, or fat people (of which I am one) should not be covered for lung cancer or diabetes, or anything else. Where will it end? If you want to see the desecration and elimination of group health insurance, this is your bill. What was the vote on this amendment you ask? 51 votes No, 48 votes Yes. Two votes would have altered the outcome. Senator Snowe crossed party lines. She was one of the necessary swing votes. Bernie Sanders of Vermont noted that if the Senate was 83 woman and 17 men, this bill would never have come to a vote. Former Senator Rick Santorum had the audacity recently to assert that even in cases of rape, a mother-to-be should look upon her pregnancy as a “gift from god.” Not my god, Mr. Santorum. My god views such a situation as a horrific tragedy and a serious crime. If there is a way to limit the effect of such a tragedy (such as a day after pill), bring it on. Please do not impose your strict religious position on the rest of us. Let reason rule. My work allows me to read medical records every day, men and women, all ages. Contraceptives work. Almost all moms use them, 99 percent of the women in the United States during their lifetimes according to Planned Parenthood. Many, many men have had vasectomies. Is our world or state any the worse for it? I don’t think so. I grew up one of seven children. We went to Mass every Sunday. We saw lots of large families with four, five, seven, even 12 children. Who do you now know that has more than three kids that is under 50? Enough said. Society has spoken. Family planning is part of almost every family’s life. It allows women to pursue careers and to plan when they desire to have children. The idea that it should not be covered in insurance plans is ludicrous. Policies with these provisions save money; premiums are lowered, as costs are lowered, as unwanted pregnancies do not occur. The next generation views the 50-plus-year-old men making the arguments nationally and locally as completely out of touch. So does this 50 plus year old man. I want my government to be moderate. I want my government to care about the people it governs. I want fewer unwanted pregnancies. I don’t believe just saying no works. I don’t think anyone is pro-abortion. I think the day after pill is a great invention. I like that women of my generation have had more choice in all aspects of their life. I think most people think like me. Please, jump on moderates, and let your voice be heard by both sides. Paul Chant is a lawyer and a partner in Cooper, Cargill and Chant in North Conway.

the donated food, saying that it will add to the food pantry’s array of food. “We greatly appreciate the legion’s work. With many people now out of work with the early end to the ski season, and with high gas prices, we know that people are having to make tough choices,” said Leighton. On hand to make the donation were Kelly Holland, the legion’s assistant rider director, and Terrie Ayres, an auxiliary member of Post 46 and the wife of Post 46 commander Larry Ayres. “The post has always done things for the community, but we have stepped that up and this was a way that we agreed we could serve our fellow residents,” said Ayres. To raise the cash to buy goods over the past month, the post held a 50-50 raffle, and Holland and Ayres spent “many many hours” traveling to local businesses to obtain products and donations. They also held a fund-raiser at the legion March 24, featuring the music

of Stiff Kitty, whose members donated their services. Home Depot donated raffle prizes, according to Holland and Ayres. Members also donated items for the raffle. “We placed totes at many businesses so people could make donations,” said Ayres. “We raised $580 in cash, which we used to buy goods at the Community Market in Brownfield. They sell items that cost pennies on the dollar, and we were able to purchase a whole palette of food,” said Holland. Easter breakfast and egg hunt Next up, the legion plans to host an Easter breakfast and egg hunt April 8 beginning with the breakfast at 9 a.m., followed by the egg hunt at 10:30 a.m. A $5 fee will be charged for the breakfast; ages 12 and under are admitted free. Call Holland at 7261442 for more information. Hours for the Vaughan Community Food Pantry are Mondays from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 4 to 6 p.m.; Wednesdays from 9 to 10:30 a.m., Thursdays 1:30 to 3 p.m., and by appointment by calling 356-2324.

with lights and rescue equipment approximately 50 feet into the crevasse,” according to the forest service statement. “Visibility was restricted to about 80 feet. The crevasse, filled with hanging ice, running water and undermined snow, narrowed below that point. It was determined that lowering further into the crevasse was not possible due to signifi cant safety concerns for rescuers.” It was 11 p.m. by the time the effort was over, and there was still no sign of Priebatsch. The search was put on hold at that point, according to the statement. “The accident site will be constantly monitored for changing conditions to allow resumption of recovery efforts.” “As of today the snow conditions remain pretty dangerous,” said Tiffany Benna, a forest service spokesman. “Efforts are still suspended.” Other rescuers involved in the effort, however, suggest that suspension will last for a while. “There is no plan right now to retrieve him until the snow melts,” Rick Wilcox, president of Mountain Rescue Service, one of the agencies called to assist the forest service, said on Tuesday. The rescuer who lowered into the crevasse was able to see a hole at the bottom, Wilcox said, and “all he could see down the hole was water rushing.” Those conditions, he said, make it very dangerous for rescuers. “You might get in and you might not get out,” he said. “The risk to the rescue personnel isn’t justified.” This is not the first time the headwall crevasse has caught unsuspecting hikers or skiers. Last year, according to Wilcox, a snowboarder fell in. Two professional climbing guides who are members of Mountain Rescue Service were nearby, and they were able to extricate the snowboarder from before he succumbed to hypothermia. Freezing water from the waterfall had the victim shivering in seconds, Wilcox said. “You don’t last long down in there.” In 2001 two hikers went in. The snow rangers, assisted by the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Mount Washington Volunteer Ski Patrol, were able to get both of them out, although both suffered injuries. An Associated Press story of that rescue described it as similar to what rescuers tried to do this weekend: an effort involving ropes and harnesses. Perhaps the most famous example of such an accident occurred in May 1994 and is described in “Not Without Peril,” the book about deaths on Mount Washington that was published in 2000. That rescue ended when a New Hampshire Fish and Game diver wearing a drysuit got lowered into the crevasse. At the bottom he found the body of Cheryl Wiengarten, a college student, who had fallen in the day before. That incident eventually led to a lawsuit where Weingarten’s family sued to recover damages from the U.S. Forest Service. The suit alleged the forest service should have marked the crevasse as a hazard in a similar way to the way ski areas mark hazards. A judge threw out the case, pointing out that there are numerous hazards in a back-country area like Tuckerman Ravine. It would be impossible for the government to mark them all. Wilcox was on that rescue. It was similar to this weekend’s, he said, but there are some key differences. First, he said, no one was sure Wiengarten went into the hole. It was cloudy, so while people saw her fall no one saw where she ended up. Rescuers figured out eventually after searching the ravine that she must have been in the crevasse, but there were no eyewitnesses. That’s different than with Priebatsch. “We know he’s in there,” Wilcox said. People watched him fall into the crevasse. “It’s not an if.” Hence the difference in the rescue effort, he said. In 1994 a rescuer went in the following day, he said, but this time there was no question so a rescuer went in right away. The other difference? Wiengarten was found at the bottom of the crevasse, unlike Priebatsch. “He is further down,” Wilcox said.

Four candidates for two Conway selectman seats

Michael DiGregorio

Bob Drinkhall

Steven Porter

Stacy Sand

• How long have you been a Conway resident? I have lived in Conway almost all my life. I have a wife Carole of 25 years and two boys, Kiefer and Kyle. Kiefer is back after serving a tour in Iraq. He is currently in CDL school and will be looking for work. Kyle attends the University of Colorado at Boulder where he is studying Aerospace Engineering. • Have you served in any local elected positions in the past (planning board, school board, etc.)? Yes, I’ve served many times as an elected official in Conway. I believe it was around 25 years ago when I first ran and was elected to office. Since then I have held many positions: budget committee, planning board, school board, and selectman. In addition to government positions, I was elected for seven years as commissioner of Cal Ripken Baseball. My duties covered 67 towns, with almost 4,000 players and 600 volunteers. I oversaw 11 boards which reported back to me on every aspect of their day-to-day operations. • Why are you running? I’m running again because I have always felt it is important to be involved and if ever there has been a time to get involved this is it. The size of Conway is changing and our government needs to adjust along with it. • What should a selectman’s top three priorities be? Priorities in local government are usually similar from year to year, with an occasional high-profile issue coming into play once in a while. This year, like all years, spending is a top priority. At the selectmen’s office we are constantly looking at spending in an effort to reduce costs and lower tax bills. Each year that I have been involved in budgeting, whether on the school board or the selectmen’s office, we have had a surplus at the end of the year and money not spent has been returned to the taxpayers. Infrastructure is always a top priority. I have always believed that once the voters put something in place

• How long have you been a Conway resident? I have been a Conway resident for almost 33 years. • Have you served in any local elected positions in the past (planning board, school board, etc.)? I was selectman three years, planning board member 10 years, budget committee member six years and selectmen’s representative to five committees, including the garage and lighting committees. I also served as chairman for the North Conway Water Precinct ad hoc budget, fire department master plan and buy-in committees. • Why are you running? In the challenging times we are facing, I am confident I will be able to bring forth a positive influence for the position utilizing my business and government background. This would be accomplished by carefully researching the subject at hand and taking into consideration the will of the people before making any decisions. • What should a selectman’s top three priorities be? To promote open and honest government for all residents of Conway in an unbiased fashion. To provide all services required in a fiscally sound manner, taking into consideration the need for said service and the ability of the taxpayers to fund that service without being an unreasonable burden. To enforce the regulations and policies of the town in a fair and equitable manner. • What unique skills would you bring to the board? Utilizing my past experience on the several boards, committees and having observed the changes to the town in the past 33 years I am able to play a positive role in the future of Conway. I have no agenda to serve, am fiscally responsible, a problem solver and have over 34 years business experience. All of which will aid me in carrying out the responsibilities of selectman should I be elected. • What do you see as the biggest

• How long have you been a Conway resident? I have been a resident of Conway all of my life, having graduated with honors from Kennett High School class of 1976. I am currently the meat manager of Grants Shop Save in Glen. • Have you served in any local elected positions in the past (planning board, school board, etc.)? I have been involved with the town of Conway Planning Board for the past eight years, holding the position of chair for the past four years. • Why are you running? I am running for the position of selectman because I think now more than ever we need to bring new life, common sense, and a sense of proactiveness to the issues that arise on a day-to-day basis at the town level. We need to be able to make decisions that will last over the next 20 or 30 years and benefit all of the townspeople and not just a few. We need to recreate a true sense of opportunity that will embrace all the families futures. We are at a crossroads in our town’s future and now more than ever we cannot afford to take a wait-and-see approach but be proactive and explore other avenues of economic growth that will benefit our future generation. • What should a selectman’s top three priorities be? The top priorities for the board of selectmen should be quite simple: due diligence in making decisions at the town level so that all voters are represented fairly; common sense used when making decisions that aren’t just quick fix remedies but will last for years to come; preserving the foundation which this town was built on while promoting sustainable economic growth. • What unique skills would you bring to the board? Having been raised here in the valley and being involved on the planning board and working the retail end of business, I feel I have a good handle on what the people are looking for. My decisions on the planning board have

• How long have you been a Conway resident? I have been a Conway resident for 10 of the last 20 years, having lived in Madison in between my two residencies. • Have you served in any local elected positions in the past (planning board, school board, etc.)? I was on the Conway Planning Board and was vice chair of the board when I resigned because I bought a house and moved to Madison. I also presently serve on the MWV Solid Waste Commission. I have been asked to serve on a number of non-profit boards, but have decided to use my volunteer time in other ways for those organizations for now. I also was a town employee, department head in Wells, Maine, and have participated in town government from that side of things. • Why are you running? I am running for selectman because I love this town. Also, I can listen to many sides of an issue and from that come up with viable solutions based on the information that has been researched and made available at the time. This ear for the people includes all people who may be affected by the selectmen’s decisions, including voters and non-voting taxpayers, like the business owners and second-home owners of this town. I also ask good questions, which will get us to the best answers for solving problems. I presently have the time and desire to do the work of a selectman and think that I would be a good representative of the people. • What should a selectman’s top three priorities be? The top three priorities should be: 1. Protecting the town’s resources — financial, people, buildings and natural resources — to ensure sustainability and conservation of those resources while providing the needed services of Conway. 2. Being the voice of the people of Conway, by listening to the people’s concerns and addressing those concerns through town management and as representative to other government entities, like our state representatives.

whether it be a road or a building, the selectmen and the budget committee have the obligation to take care of it. As budgets are put together each year, infrastructure is often put on the back burner. One of the high-profile priorities this year will no doubt be the organization of a charter commission which will look at and make recommendations on our town government. I have been the lone selectman to bring this topic up over several years now. We often hear comments that very few people will volunteer their time and effort on government boards within the town. The reality is, we have over 100 people in town volunteering on various boards, many of which are redundant and serving the same purpose as another board. It’s time we consolidate some of the governmental agencies within this town in an effort to be more efficient and reduce spending. • What unique skills would you bring to the board? I’m not sure “unique” is the word I would use describing what I bring to the board. It implies that I’m the only one with specific skills to be a selectman. If the question was “what makes me different than other candidates,” I would say I have been involved in local government and community events longer than any of the other candidates. I have been elected into all of the major boards within this community and have the most experience of all candidates running for selectmen’s office. • What do you see as the biggest positive in Conway? The biggest challenge?

Our biggest positives in the town of Conway are clearly the people. We are very lucky to have a town administration and staff that understand the needs of the taxpayers, and they work every day to achieve those needs. The voters have always been supportive of the town budget and the selectmen’s office and I believe they are supportive because they understand town staff attempts to be as efficient as possible in every way. • What specific achievements would you like to see the town attain over the course of your term? I would like to see a better relationship with the business community in Conway. Often times the business community is looked at as a nonvoting entity, however they are taxpayers and their workers are voters. The business community pays roughly 50 percent of our tax burden and they should be better heard on issues. In an effort to achieve this goal, the selectmen’s office has recently created a subcommittee with the business community. As this committee evolves and defines its goals, I believe we’ll have a better relationship. • Do you feel the selectmen handled the recent streetlighting issue well? What would you have done differently? No, I do not feel the selectmen handled the streetlighting issue well at all. Prior to me being on the selectmen’s board, all the lights in what is known as “The Strip” were shut off. While I was on the board we tried to gather information from the public, which included public hearings, petitions from the voters and people coming into selectmen meetings, all in an effort to understand what the

taxpayers wanted and reduce spending. At the last minute a motion was made and passed to shut off every other light in town. It was a mistake then, and it’s a mistake now. Hopefully our proposed budget passes and we will turn on the lights in our business community. • Do you support transforming the budget committee from statutory to advisory? Why or why not? I definitely support articles34 and 35, which changes the budget committee from statutory to advisory in nature. There are a few things that the voters need to understand as they determine whether they support these articles or not. There are members of our local budget committee and other individuals outside of the town of Conway that are attempting to take away voters rights. Legislation has been entered in Concord that will either eliminate or severely limit the voters’ opportunity to amend budgeted warrant articles from the floor of the deliberative session. This is a direct assault on voters’ rights and I will not stand by and let the voters’ rights be taken away. While serving as the selectmen’s representative to the budget committee this past season I received an e-mail which I believe was sent mistakenly, which convinced me of a conspiracy within the budget committee to remove the voters’ rights and give the budget committee more power over the voters, selectmen’s office and the school board. I am convinced that this effort will not stop until they have the statutory authority over every other governmental board in town. One way to stop or resolve this is to make the budget committee advisory

only. Some people would argue that without statutory oversight, budgets will become bloated and out of control. My response would be we have had a budget committee in town for over 50 years. In that 50 years only once has a budget committee overstepped its authority and gone against the voters. Last year 1,200 people went to a deliberative meeting in an effort to make the budget committee members be more reasonable. Six people on the budget committee decided the future of education in the town of Conway. That is not how our system should work. • Any final thoughts? On Feb. 17, 2012, on page 6 of The Conway Daily Sun, there was an editorial written with regards to the petition warrant articles 34 and 35. Although most of the editorial focused on six power-hungry members of the budget committee and the reaction they received from the voters, the editorial did bring up a very important issue. Participation in local government both here and all across America is becoming a problem. We must ask taxpayers and voters stay involved in the process. This doesn’t mean that you have to be an elected official but you must understand the issues and talk to the people voted to represent you. You must also pay attention to the elected officials that blatantly go against the voters’ wishes or conspire to take your rights away. Without your involvement, the tradition of local government will be taken away forever. I can always be reached through a phone call or an e-mail, and, on April 10, 2012, I hope you will continue to support me by voting me into the selectmen’s office.

positive in Conway? The biggest challenge? The positives in Conway include a responsible town portion of the budget while providing excellent town services. We are also extremely fortunate to have many experienced and highly qualified staff members to accomplish these services. The biggest challenge to our community is to continue these services in a manner affordable to all taxpayers. This problem is being exacerbated by the poor economy and the downshifting of financial responsibilities from other government entities. • What specific achievements would you like to see the town attain over the course of your term? One achievement would be to promote a wider more diverse voter turnout and involvement in town government. The public hearing had just 10 members of the public attend and the two deliberative meetings 100 to 125. This allows for a small interest group on any issue to give the 6,000 registered voters little choice when and if they vote on town budgets and issues. This is compounded by only 17 percent to 33 percent of the voters showing up at the polls for the past four years of the town vote. Ways to promote a better turnout should also be looked into and improved. • Do you feel the selectmen handled the recent streetlighting issue well? What would you have done differently? As stated in my March 4, 2012, letter to the editor I never was in favor of turning off lights in the village districts. My original proposal was “to decommission streetlights that are not

always been based on what the people want and how it impacts the valley overall. With my skills I feel that I will make the best possible informed decisions that will prove to be positive for all. • What do you see as the biggest positive in Conway? The biggest challenge? Perhaps our biggest positive in Conway is its vast natural beauty and resources that attract all walks of life that enjoy vacationing in our beautiful area that is very unique throughout the winter and summer months. Our biggest challenge to date is how can we promote future growth to develop a strengthened economy while preserving our natural beauty and family values. • What specific achievements would you like to see the town attain over the course of your term? My biggest goal is, quite simply, to bring a no nonsense approach to our town government and be able to make decisions with all the information in front of me. I want to promote the future of this area as a wonderful place to raise families and also retire. I want this area to overflow with lifelong possibilities that we can build both our future and our children’s future on. • Do you feel the selectmen handled the recent streetlighting issue well? What would you have done differently? I feel that the board of selectmen

located at an intersection and that are located outside of the village and highway zoning districts” as recommended by the lighting committee. The motion to proceed with the recommendation of the lighting committee carried unanimously by the board of selectmen. Later on Sept. 29, 2010, the selectmen then voted two to three not to follow the lighting committee’s recommendation. Instead, a motion to turn off every other streetlight, with few exceptions, was passed. It has now been proposed to turn these lights back on with added funds in the proposed budget. I support turning them on; however, I would have required a more economical method of doing so. • Do you support transforming the budget committee from statutory to advisory? Why or why not? This is perhaps the most ludicrous proposal I have seen for town government as far back as I can remember. Keep in mind that the taxes paid have increased at a far greater rate than the ability of the average taxpayer to pay said taxes. In 31 years taxes increased by 333 percent, varies slightly by district, while low-end wages increased by only 93 percent. These tax increases occurred with a statutory budget committee in place. What would they be with only an advisory committee? I urge all voters to vote down articles 34 and 35 pertaining to this issue, as will I. • Any final thoughts? My final thought is to again urge all eligible voters to turn out on April 10, 2012, and all future voting days. I would appreciate your consideration and vote on April 10 so I can strive to work in your best interest.

showed due diligence on the streetlight issue and listened to the voters and their wishes. • Do you support transforming the budget committee from statutory to advisory? Why or why not? I do not support transferring the budget committee to advisory; it is an example of stepping back and not moving forward. I remember quite well the days when the budget committee could only make recommendations with little to no authority and at times people didn’t take them serious, as well as you couldn’t even field a full board. It is my opinion that this would be detrimental to the whole process. • Any final thoughts? I have always had a special place in my heart for this valley, having been raised here. Through the years it has given me a great sense of pride to have been able to help make a difference. Moving forward I feel that I can use what I have learned on the planning board to help make better informed decisions down the road. I can promise you all this: I will work hard to help promote the future of our town. I will use the same thought process that I have used in the past to bring forward the best possible course of action for all parties involved. I promise you that the best interest of all voters will be in my heart when making decisions. I will listen to all concerns, and if I don’t have the answer I will surely do my best to find it. I would like to thank all the people for their consideration at the upcoming election.

Mount Washington Valley chapter one of six in state BY DICK FICKE (This is the second in a series of articles designed to introduce readers to the Service Corps of Retired Executives, SCORE. They are prepared by Dick Ficke, chair of the Mount Washington SCORE chapter.) In the first of a series of articles of What’s the SCORE, we introduced the reader to the national organization. Discussed is its purpose, history and the services and resources it has to offer entrepreneurs contemplating starting their own business or growing an existing business. The article also made reference to the fact that there are over 364 chapters throughout the United States. One of those chapters is located here in the Mount Washington Valley. With an office located in the Technology Village, Conway, the Mount Washington Valley (MWV) chapter of SCORE has been serving the start up and in-business needs of local business persons since 1995. The chapter started out with approximately 15 volunteer counselors operating out of a small office in the former Bank of New Hampshire building in Conway. The chapter is currently colocated with the economic council in the Technology Village in Conway. The MWV chapter is one of six in N.H., the others being in Portsmouth, Manchester, Laconia, Lebanon and Keene. As with the national, there are three primary services. The first encompasses counseling and mentoring. Free of charge, counseling is often oneon-one with a SCORE volunteer, but may involve several counselors. Mentoring involves a longerterm relationship with the client whereby the counselor is an advisor and sounding board for a variety of issues. The second service is workshop and seminar programs. Some are held in a classroom environment, others on line. Most deal with the start-up basics, business plans, financing and marketing. The third service is counseling online via e-mail. This service is offered through the local chapter’s SCORE website at MWV SCORE counselors use the website to participate in online counseling services, adhering to the same high-quality and professional services that apply to face-to-face counseling sessions. But now let’s turn to the information resources of the MWV chapter and discuss the chapter’s relationship with the MWV Economic Council and the SBA. Both organizations have a certain dependence upon the other. Office space, high-speed Internet access and administrative assistance are provided to the SCORE chapter by the economic council. In turn, the interests of the economic council are promoted by SCORE through business start-up and growth assistance. It is a win-win scenario for both organizations, promoted in a large measure by professional business people being members of both organizations in their quest to further the economic fortunes of the valley. Another resource available to SCORE is the Business Information Center (BIC). Located next to the SCORE office in the Technology Center, the BIC is a library of reference documents, software and video tapes furnished primarily by the Small Business Association. The MWV SCORE website provides helpful resource links to other sites such as the National SCORE Association, the SBA, chamber of comsee SCORE page 14

Should local government run more like a business? BY MICHAEL KLINE It seems that all my adult life, I’ve been hearing the argument that perhaps a more business-like approach could stop government from running amok. I have never worked in government and I’ve never really been involved in politics. I have, however, spent the last 20 years either turning around businesses that were in miserable shape, or starting my own small businesses and working hard to make them successful, or consulting others who are trying to do the same. I would say that I am something of an expert on businesses running amok — government, not so much. The above disclaimer notwithstanding, it occurs to me in this Michael Kline local election time, that we should consider if it makes sense to think of running our town more like a business. The truth is, it’s not a business. It’s not supposed to make a profit and it’s not supposed to serve its leaders’, board of directors’ and its shareholders’ needs over public interest. I think it should run as a really good non-profit. That said, it is supposed to build cash reserves and achieve clearly defined goals surrounding its mission of serving its constituency. Well-run non-profit organizations have different motivations than for-profit businesses, but certainly, both have more in common than not. For instance, government should look for efficiencies in a business-like fashion. Surely, we, as a community should be looking

proactively forward for opportunities and challenges that will soon be facing us, not just reacting to each new crisis as it presents itself. I don’t usually talk local politics — but speaking in a business context, I have some thoughts on a few current issues. I don’t think we should close an elementary school. Nor do I think we shouldn’t — I don’t know. As a business person, I would study the situation and only then could I render an opinion. So, I think it would be business-like to pass the article giving the school board the direction to study closing an elementary school. We should be making smart investments that will save us money or provide a greater return in the future — I’m not an expert, but it seems that most people, who are experts, agree that all-day kindergarten is one such smart investment. Sometimes we try things that are not successful. We must keep open minds and be willing to change our minds. At town meeting, I changed my mind about the budget committee and decided that I support article 34 and 35 to go back to a budget committee as an advisory panel only. I always respected their opinions and I believe those opinions carry great power and respect among many voters. However, I have not seen the additional power recently given the committee has been managed well. If we were a business, our “board of directors” would be our selectmen. I’m glad to see some new blood in recent elections with Mary Seavey and Mike DiGregorio. In many older businesses, bringing in some new blood is necessary for fresh ideas and perspectives. For that reason, I’m supporting Mike’s re-election and the addition of Stacy Sand to our board. You may feel differently, and I totally respect that, and I still hope you will come out and vote. All Conway residents are the “stockholders” of this company, and election-day is our big stockholder meeting. Whether we agree or disagree, I’m confident we all benefit when we have greater participation. Please vote your conscience next Tuesday, April 10.

Community Easter egg hunt in Fryeburg April 7

The Fryeburg Community Easter egg hunt is all set to take place on Saturday, April 7. Join me, the Osgood family, and the great folks from the Fryeburg Recreation Committee at 10 a.m. at the Fryeburg Recreation Field of Dreams on Route 302 for this annual event. There are some great prizes donated by local businesses, so be sure to come early to purchase your raffle tickets. As always I’d like to invite everyone in town to stop by to enjoy the fun. Watching 100 children scoop up over 2,000 eggs in a matter of minutes is a sight to behold. After the egg hunt you can head right over to the rescue barn for a family fun day that will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be games for the children and four Easter baskets to be raffled off. The Easter bunny will make a special appearance and the kids can guess how many jelly beans are in a jar. Burgers and hot dogs, along with baked goods will be for sale. An Easter Sunday service will take place again this year at the Chatham Congregational Church on Route 113B. The service will begin at 9 a.m. with the Rev. Dr. Donald Derse at the pulpit. Organist Jonas Eastman will be the organist. Summer season services will resume on May 6 at 9 a.m. I was terribly neglectful last week when I completely forgot to include the Fryeburg Congregational Church Maple Sunday Brunch in my column. However, my good friend Tana Ganley treated me for my birthday, and as usual the food was fantastic. These folks know how to cook up a heck-of-a maple feast. These same good folks are already planning one of their famous pulled-pork dinners to be held in July before the second Concert in the Bradley Park. So flip your calendars ahead a couple of months and jot it down. The annual fundraiser for Dollars for Scholars, to be held at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center brings together the music students of Fryeburg Academy and Kennett High School on April 4 at 7 p.m. Each school’s band and chorus work to prepare their own pieces and then join together to perform as well. It is a night of wonderful music, and all for a great cause! Tickets prices are $7 for adults, $5 for students and $20 for a family and will be available at the door. The entertainment just keeps coming with a concert performed by acoustic blues artist Rory Black

on April 5 at 7:30 p.m. Rory is a five time blues music award-winner who has People Magazine saying, “If you like music steeped in tradition and genuine feeling, this is your woman.” Tickets for this event are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students. Last but not least, give yourself a break from the mud-season blues, and support a good cause at the same time. On April 6 at 7 p.m. Roderick Russell will bring his award-winning and hilarious stage hypnosis show to Fryeburg in support of the sophomore class of Fryeburg Academy. The show is appropriate for families and on-stage participation is strictly volunteer. Tickets are $10 per person and will available at the door the night of the show. They can also be reserved in advance by contacting the performing arts center box office. Upcoming events include the annual Drive through Rabies Clinic to be held at the Fryeburg Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 14. The clinic begins at 9 a.m. and ends at noon. Be sure to bring documentation of prior rabies vaccine. This event is sponsored by the Fryeburg Veterinary Hospital. Proceeds benefit Harvest Hills Animal Hospital. For more information call the shelter at (207)935-4358. On the evening of the 14th a benefit supper will be held for Billy Holt, who has serious health problems. The supper will take place at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church from 5 to 7 p.m. Tickets for adults are $8 and children $4. Dinner includes casseroles, salads, rolls, baked beans, beverages and dessert. For more information call Sally Harnden at (207) 935-2546. Last Saturday I walked, along with my family, in the MS Walkathon in Newburyport, Mass. to raise money for MS. I needle-felted an Easter bunny as a raffle prize. Paisley the bunny was won by Sue Frost of Fryeburg and will be featured on the website, the company from which I buy my felting supplies, on Easter Sunday! I am so pleased and hope everyone will check it out! I think of the garden after the rain; And hope to my heart comes singing, At morn the cherry-blooms will be white, And the Easter bells be ringing! — Edna Dean Proctor, “Easter Bells” Enjoy Easter Sunday and everyday with your family and keep me posted at

Ukrainian-style Easter eggs decorating event April 5

Don’t forget that on Thursday April 5, there will be a Ukrainian-style Easter eggs decorating event at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. Using melted wax on eggs with details drawn on them is unusual but the results are amazing. Don’t forget to sign up if you haven’t. A new experience is a learning event. April is National Library week and the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will be celebrating this event on Friday, April 13, at 7 p.m. Young and old alike are invited to the library to discuss books. Each one who attends is encouraged to talk about their most favorite book ever. For those who are interested in a new book, you can call the library and ask for it and if Charlotte Hobbs doesn’t have it available it will be ordered for you through the library sharing program. There will be an Art project which will be based on the Eric Carle books on collage art. Those who do a project will have the results hung in the Library for the rest of the month. Come and share your love of books then share refreshments and talk about the evening together. The art program held in February was a success and because of that success those who took part are invited back on Saturday, April 7, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. to draw and sketch with others interested. This invitation is extended because of the enthusiasm of the class held by Margaret Nominating. Those who wish to attend don’t have to have prior experience just the yen for the paper and pencils to draw on. Other Library dates are adult discussion group Monday, April 9, at 1 p.m. to discuss any book written about Maine by a Maine author. The newly form writing group will meet on April 12 and 26 from 1 to 2 p.m. The gardening group will meet on Thursday, April 19, at noon to hear Barbara Murphy from Oxford County Extension talk about gardening hints and composting. During April school vacation there will be no children’s programs. The cribbage group will still meet every Wednesday morning. Palm Sunday at the United Church of Christ was a busy morning for Pastor Alison Andrea Jacobs with two Baptisms, and the induction of six new members of the church and Holy Communion. It was a joy to see two young women Beth Dormer and Abbey Nataluk baptized with their family beside them. Then to have a company of six join the church together like Nike and Abbey Nataluk, Penny Allen, Virginia Weeks, Angie Blake and Beth Dorner brought inspiration to the congregation. Palm Sunday leads us to the final days of lent and what a wonderful Sunday for the worshipers of the United Church of Christ. Don’t forget that on Saturday, April 7, there will be an Easter bake sale to raise funds for Camp Susan Curtis by the Lovell Untied Church of Christ Mission Committee. Just thinking about the beautiful Easter colors makes me wish I’d be there. There will be goodies in all forms and Easter Basket ready to give to someone you love. The children who attended the egg-citment at the

church had a great time. The Easter bunny was so loveable and fun, bet she had as much fun as the kids.. They enjoyed the egg hunt and game and gobbled up the goodies. Great joy for the kids. The winners of the Ron Ashworth beans and cole slaw contest were: first, Nancy Olmstead; second, Vicki Royer; and third, Barbara McAlister for their cole slaw. The winners for the best beans were: first, Carolyn Carter; second, Vicki Royer, and third, Jacob Morse. The money earned goes toward the Pilgrim Lodge Campership Fund. The first sign of spring is the letter the Lake Kezar Country Club members receive from the club president Brad Littlefield. There was great news this year that Lake Kezar Country Club had been chosen out of 675 courses by The New England Golf Guide as the No. 1 golfing value in New England for 1012. This honor came to the club because last fall the course was upgraded to a three-star course. The staff at the course is constantly making improvements to live up to this new honor. Some of the work done is removal of trees around the fourth hole tee boxes and renovations in the club house behind the front desk. The club also invested in new rental clubs and 16 new golf carts. Kezar has reciprocal agreements with other courses like Indian Mound, Maplewood and Waumbeck and after negociation Point Sebago will be added to the list which allows any member of Kezar to play a round of golf with cart for $25. First activity at the course will be clean up day on April 28. In conjunction with the Lovell Rec Andi Johnson will be conducting Palates exercise at the VFW on Monday and Wednesday from April 23 to May 18 from 9 to 10 a.m. All routines are done on mats with Andi working hands on to a line the body properly. As this is a limited time the cost will be donations. For those having taken the previous exercise classes with Michael this might be a good time to check this out. Last week in thanking everyone for my birthday party I forgot to thank the person who made my fantastic cake, because I didn’t know who made it. Thanks go to Lori Pelkie who made the most wonderful and beautiful cake, it was wonderful. I have a very good friend who will be turning 95 on April 9. When we served on the Old Home Days committee I always made sure we had cupcakes, that was so many years ago. This wonderful man has always been a mentor to me and that’s why I’m still writing this column. He lived in Lovell and was the most respected man I knew along with his partner and wife Peg. Whoops did I give it away. Even though they now live in Fryeburg he still belongs to Lovell. He follows the academy’s sports teams, still plays golf and can be found watching the tennis tournament in Lovell in August. His big grin is joy to behold and I’m so fortunate to be able to call him friend, it’s an honor. To contact Ethel Hurst call (207) 925-3226.

Fundraiser at The Shannon Door Pub.

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. God has you in His arms. I have you in my heart...

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Special projects are so enthralling that you wish you could spend all of your time and energy on them. Even if you can’t make that happen given your current situation, you’re lucky to feel so strongly about your interests. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have an important point to make today, and there’s no use in being subtle. Sing it from the rooftops. You’ll attract like minds, and together you can progress. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be a master of free association now, so feel free to go off on a conversational riff. Chances are, you’ll hit on the topic that your counterpart most enjoys. You raise conversation to an art form. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll go on a shopping spree, but what you’re after is probably something other than tangible goods. You’re looking for the inspiration or information that will lead you to the next great adventure. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It was this day in 1939 that your sign mate Glenn Miller recorded “Moonlight Serenade,” which quickly became a popular standard. You’ll be similarly creatively inspired, so remember to record your ideas! TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 4). You are charismatic and popular this year, and you’ll use your powers for good, elevating the mood of those around you. Over the next four weeks, you’ll be proud to see your brainchild develop and walk on its own. Family makes you proud in August. Plan a trip to where you’ve always wanted to go. October is ideal for travel. Leo and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 2, 12, 34 and 28.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ideas inspire you, command your full attention and propel you forward. You’ll feel like diving in without testing the waters first, and this may actually work well for you, provided you’re reasonably familiar with this particular “pool.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t worry about finishing what you started. Organize your project for completion at a later date. The process of taking stock, categorizing and figuring out where things stand will illuminate an important piece of the puzzle. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Venus newly gracing your sign decides to lend you a cloak of charm. All you have to do is wrap it around yourself (visualize this in great detail), and suddenly the world finds you enchanting. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Getting too involved in the lives of others can be, simply stated, a drag. When you are careful to identify problems as “yours” and “mine,” life becomes rather manageable, if not downright enjoyable. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You enjoy learning new things quite a lot more than you’ll enjoy repeating the same old tasks. And yet, it’s the same old tasks that need your attention. A midmorning attitude adjustment will help you soldier on with a smile. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The moon in your sign casts a glow of intrigue on your life, and you may field more attention, questions and curious stares than you’re used to. You can’t help it that you’re so fascinating! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can never know everything about a person. Even if the other person is your twin who shares the same DNA, there still will be a world to discover. New questions breathe life into old relationships.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, April 4, 2012— Page 21

Today is Wednesday, April 4, the 95th day of 2012. There are 271 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 4, 1968, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn. On this date: In 1818, Congress decided the flag of the United States would consist of 13 red and white stripes and 20 stars, with a new star to be added for every new state of the Union. In 1841, President William Henry Harrison succumbed to pneumonia one month after his inaugural, becoming the first U.S. chief executive to die in office. In 1850, the city of Los Angeles was incorporated. In 1859, “Dixie” was performed publicly for the first time by Bryant’s Minstrels at Mechanics’ Hall in New York. In 1887, Susanna Madora Salter became the first woman elected mayor of an American community: Argonia, Kan. In 1912, China proclaimed a republic in Tibet, a move fiercely opposed by Tibetans. In 1933, the Navy airship USS Akron crashed in severe weather off the New Jersey coast with the loss of 73 lives. In 1949, 12 nations, including the United States, signed the North Atlantic Treaty in Washington, D.C. In 1960, Elvis Presley recorded “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” in Nashville, Tenn., for RCA Victor. In 1975, more than 130 people, most of them children, were killed when a U.S. Air Force transport plane evacuating Vietnamese orphans crashlanded shortly after takeoff from Saigon. In 1981, Henry Cisneros became the first Hispanic elected mayor of a major U.S. city: San Antonio. In 1991, Sen. John Heinz, R-Pa., and six other people, including two children, were killed when a helicopter collided with Heinz’s plane over a schoolyard in Merion, Pa. One year ago: Yielding to political opposition, the Obama administration gave up on trying avowed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four alleged co-conspirators in civilian federal courts and said it would prosecute them instead before military commissions.

Page 24 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, April 4, 2012

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: Two years ago, when I was in 10th grade, I had a best friend, “Ben.” We talked all the time, shared secrets and always hung out together. I never regarded him as someone I’d like to date, so I never took his attention very seriously. That summer, he texted me and asked me to send him a picture of my breasts. When I said no, he became pushy. I told him I didn’t know what he was going to do with the picture, and I didn’t want to get in trouble. He was upset that I didn’t “trust” him. I tried to explain that I couldn’t assume he wouldn’t do anything to hurt me. We didn’t talk the rest of the summer. The following year we had a chemistry class together, and Ben acted like he didn’t know me. He deleted my phone number and dropped me as a friend on Facebook. Now, in our final year of high school, he’s in another class with me. He still won’t acknowledge me and is always flirting with my best friend. I have cried so much over Ben. I miss him a lot. I don’t understand why he’s treating me this way. What did I do that was so awful? Is something wrong with me? -- BEWILDERED IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR BEWILDERED: You did nothing wrong. You considered Ben to be a friend, and I assume that you aren’t in the habit of showing your male friends your breasts. It seems only logical that you wouldn’t send a picture that could wind up heaven knows where. Ben is acting this way because he is trying to punish you for not giving him what he wanted. He’s flirting with your friend to hurt you and/or make you jealous. These are not the actions of a friend, and the sooner you accept it, the better off you will be. Ben strikes me as immature and a user, so be glad

you didn’t do what he wanted. It was good common sense. DEAR ABBY: Regarding money and adult children, should a parent help all children equally if they are financially able to? Or should a parent offer help only to the children in need (medical expenses, kid in college, new washing machine, etc.)? If one child has a high-paying job, does he/she deserve any less from a parent in the end? -- WONDERING DEAR WONDERING: Before deciding how to divide your assets, first discuss this with an attorney who specializes in wills, trusts and estate planning. From my perspective, if you leave an equal amount to each of your heirs, it will prevent hurt feelings and resentment among them after you are gone. Monies given before your death to one of your children should be tallied and deducted from the amount he or she is allotted in your will -- with an explanation of the reason why it is less. DEAR ABBY: I am torn between two important people in my life. My best friend and my husband graduate this year on the same day, one at 9 a.m., the other at 10 a.m., at two different colleges an hour and a half apart. My friend says that because I was able to attend my husband’s associate and bachelor degree graduations, I should attend her ceremony because I have never seen her graduate. However, I feel my husband’s having earned his master’s degree is a huge accomplishment, and that I should attend his graduation. What do you think, Abby? -- UNDECIDED IN ARKANSAS DEAR UNDECIDED: I think you should follow your instincts, because they are exactly right. During your lifetime you will have many friends, but let’s hope only one husband.

SAND from page 10

This includes fairly administering regulations and laws that are on the books and working to change those that may not work anymore. 3. Maintaining the character of Conway by recognizing the uniqueness of our villages, the inevitability of growth, and the value of all the natural and cultural resources of this town. This includes enforcing fairly the laws that exist while encouraging purposeful, managed growth. • What unique skills would you bring to the board? I have the ability to look at very differing views and find similarities or qualities that will help in decision making, while recognizing that there are usually good points to every idea or argument. As an energy auditor, I help other people set priorities in saving energy and money in their homes and small businesses, and could do the same for the town. I could also apply many of the same principles to town buildings, helping us to save tax dollars while preserving the life and integrity of our public structures. Having spent time on the Conway Planning Board and the Solid Waste Committee, I have a good start in understanding some of the town ordinances and regulations that guide decision making. Every day in my job I analyze complex problems, look at a variety of solutions, then determine which will be most effective. Having recently started a new profession, I have become proficient at research and data gathering and learning lots of new information quickly, which would be helpful as a new selectman. I have experience and confidence in front of people, so I’m not afraid to ask the questions and then show leadership in my decisions. • What do you see as the biggest positive in Conway? The biggest challenge? The biggest positive in Conway is its people. People in this town are generous with their time and skills in helping their neighbors, both in time of crisis and for the long term through some great non-profits and

volunteer efforts. For such a small town, we also have amazing talent and cultural opportunities. One of our biggest challenges is to find a balance between the costs of services and the benefits to our town, especially in servicing a large tourist population. The other challenge that seems to be prevalent these days is the polarity between factions that make decisions in our town. I want to work on consensus building with an eye on the future and and ear to the people. • What specific achievements would you like to see the town attain over the course of your term? During my term as selectman, I would like to give people greater access to the selectmen through e-mail, public hearings and open forums at variable times (not just during the regular selectmen meetings), so that decisions are more reflective of what the people want. Also, I’d like to lend my expertise in helping the town to become “greener” and more energy efficient, adding long-term savings to our operations. • Do you feel the selectmen handled the recent streetlighting issue well? What would you have done differently? As to the streetlight issue, I won’t criticize the selectmen for their decisions made, as maybe they made the best decision, based on the information that they had available at the time. I do appreciate that they directed the town staff to research what it would take to turn some and all of the lights back on, whether with decorative lighting or LEDs, and that they asked the public at the deliberative session to get all the village lights back on. I am in favor of all street lighting being changed to LEDs, as they are not only a lot less expensive to operate, but they also last much longer, requiring less maintenance to change the bulbs. If LEDs are not yet available for some of the fixtures, then they should be gradually changed to accommodate them. Also, what is available today could readily change in a very short time, as lighting efficiency is getting better all the time. Looking forward, I hope that in addition to turning

and keeping on village lights, we will negotiate with the electric company(ies) to reduce our cost in getting the lights back on, seeing as they will benefit if we do. • Do you support transforming the budget committee from statutory to advisory? Why or why not? As to the budget committee, I am fine with having a statutory budget committee, as it’s often good to have another set of eyes looking at how we are spending taxpayers’ money. This said, I think any of our committees only work well when they are fully represented. Sometimes, there are not enough people running to fill the budget committee (or planning board). At the same time, I am supportive of citizens presenting warrant articles that give our citizens an opportunity to discuss and vote on issues that are of public concern. No matter how the voters vote on these articles, I think this article was a response to polarizing behavior exhibited by the budget xommittee of previous years. So maybe we should be looking at other forms of town government or different ways to make up our committees. At the very least, we should be willing to discuss it if people want to. • Any final thoughts? I love this town, and when elected, I promise that I will work hard to understand the issues that are important to the people in this town by listening to people’s concerns and by asking the questions that will address these concerns. I want to be a proactive versus a reactive selectman, utilizing our resources in a conservative, and where possible, sustainable way, while hopefully ensuring these resources are available for our kids, grandkids, and future Conway residents. I don’t see our town as an us versus them, business versus the natural world, growth versus tradition, or other polarizing attitudes. I see this town as made up of people with different viewpoints on what actions to take for this town that we all choose to live in and truly care about. Please vote for me, Stacy Sand, as one of your selectmen.

Weneedapool Relays to support White Mountain Aquatic Center are April 9-14 BARTLETT — The White Mountain Aquatic Center is putting together an event called the “Weneedapool Relays” during the week of April 9-14 to be held at the indoor pool at the New England Inn in Intervale. The format calls for teams of four swimmers to post a distance over a one-hour time period. The event is intended to be a fun way for swimmers of all ages and abilities to generate awareness, enthusiasm and support for community aquatics. “We have already formed nearly 18 teams from our adult Masters Workout Group, youth on the Saco Valley Swim Team, members of our water aerobics classes, a team from HEB Engineers, and local fitness swimmers,” Maury McKinney, of the Aquatic Center, said. Swimmers are invited to put together their own relay teams or join an existing relay that may need another member. Many time slots remain available for additional teams with early mornings, afternoons and evenings being best. To schedule a time for your relay team or to find out what opportunities are available please contact McKinney or Dave Shafer at 733-5915 or info@ There is a $50 fee per relay ($12.50 per swimmer) to Easter Sunday Brunch 8-2pm All You Can Eat Special 12.95

participate. In addition to the relay fee, swimmers can solicit pledges of $5, $10, $15, or $25 for their team. Donations go to the White Mountain Aquatic Foundation (WMAF) and are tax deductible. Swimmers do not have to solicit pledges. The WMAF is a local non profit with a mission to build a modern community aquatic center here in the Mt. Washington Valley. The WMAF believes that aquatic programming positively impacts the safety, health and wellness of our residents and visitors. “We are doing this event to raise awareness and support for the youth and adult aquatics programs currently being offered at the New England Inn’s pool,” McKinney said. “As reported in the Conway Daily Sun last week, the New England Inn is going to foreclosure auction sale on April 13. While the outcome of the sale of the inn is unknown we remain hopeful that new ownership will recognize the good work we do for the community and allow the White Mountain Aquatic center to complete the term of its current lease.” For more information please contact McKinney or Dave Shafer at 733-5915 or or go to our website at

Bailey has thumb injury

According to a major league source, the injury sustained by Andrew Bailey is believed to involve the UCL (ulnar collateral ligament) in the pitcher’s thumb. A UCL tear is commonly referred to as a “Skier’s Thumb,” as the injury can be incurred if a pole catches in snow and forces a thumb backwards away from the other fingers. The injury results from a physical trauma, in this case, likely a collision that Bailey had in an exhibition game on March 21. According to Dr. Bruce Leslie of Newton Wellesley Orthopediac Associates, there are three grades for a UCL injury. A Grade 1 does not need surgery and includes three weeks of immobility. A Grade 2 sometimes does not require surgery, but often ends up needing a procedure after the initial treatment isn’t effective. A Grade 3, which does include surgery, has the patient coming back anywhere from 2-3 months, with a cast needed between 4-6 weeks.
