Several ski areas still operating for diehards BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
It ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings — or stops skiing. Which means that for areas still operating such as Bretton Woods, Cannon, Loon, Waterville Valley and Wildcat, she’s whooping it up with full operatic gusto and still hitting the high notes this snowy first week in April. Bear Notch Ski Touring and Snowshoe Center in Bartlett remains the last touring center in the state to be open. Monday’s wet snowfall added slightly to Friday’s April Fool’s spring storm. Local cooperative weather observer Ed Bergeron said 6/10ths of an inch of snow had fallen as of noon Monday in North Conway to add to Friday’s 4.5 inches. The snow total for the season stands at 83.2 inches of snow, just shy of the 31-year average of 83.6. The snow has stayed longer than skiers in many cases, but diehards are continuing to head to the slopes to enjoy what many are describing as mid-winter conditions — in early April.

Custodian fired for allegedly accessing computer porn says he was framed BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
MADISON — The former head custodian at Madison Elementary who was fired because someone accessed pornography websites from his computer says it wasn’t him and that whoever did it is still working in the school.
“It’s all a bunch of lies,” said Richard Marmen. “I completely denied it because I didn’t do this.” The school board voted to fire Marmen in early February, three months before his contract would have expired, after another custodian alerted administrators to numerous porn-site visits on the computer’s browser history.
But Marmen says he never looked at porn at work. He suspects the custodian who turned him in, John Stankiewicz, set him up. “He’s always resented I got the [head custodian] job,” he said. “From day one we didn’t get along.”

Teens speak up for lack of faith
PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Every other Wednesday, right after school at 2:45, the newest club at Rutherford High, the atheist club, meets in Room 13-211. Last Wednesday, Jim Dickey, the president, started out by asking his fellow student atheists (there are a few agnostics, too) whether they wanted to put together an all-atheist Ultimate Frisbee team for a charity event. Club members discussed what to do about Faith Week. Rutherford High’s two Christian clubs will be sponsoring a series of before-school prayer circles around the flagpole this week, and several of the atheists felt a need to respond in some way. “We can set up informational tables near the flagpole and do our own speeches,” said Michael Creamer, the atheists’ faculty adviser, who suggested waiting a few weeks. “Remember, we’re not trying to be confrontational; this will be a counterpoint.” The Christians and atheists at Rutherford High get along better than some might expect. Joshua Mercer, a senior, who is president of Ignite, a Christian club, and Jim, the atheist president, are close friends. They love comparing philosophies, and giving each other a hard time. “We like to go to Taco Bell together,” Joshua said.
An atheist is a man who believes himself an accident.” —Francis Thompson

Rebel leader criticizes NATO effort in Libya
(NY Times) — Federal aviation authorities said on Monday that they would order airlines to inspect some early Boeing 737 models after Southwest Airlines found subsurface cracks in three aircraft during checks that were conducted after a five-foot hole ripped through the roof of a 737-300 jetliner on Friday. The Federal Aviation Administration said that it would issue an emergency directive on Tuesday requiring inspections for fatigue damage. The action would initially apply to about 175 aircraft
worldwide, 80 of which are registered in the United States, and mostly operated by Southwest Airlines. “Safety is our No. 1 priority,” the Transportation secretary, Ray LaHood, said in a statement. “Last Friday’s incident was very serious and could result in additional action depending on the outcome of the investigation.” The statement came shortly after Boeing said it was preparing a service bulletin that would recommend “lap-joint” inspections on certain 737-300’s as well as the 737-400 and 737-500 models.
Japan releases radioactive water into ocean TOKYO (NY Times) — Tokyo Electric Power Company began dumping more than 11,000 tons of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant on Monday, mostly to make room in storage containers for increasing amounts of far more contaminated runoff. The water, most of it to be released over two days, contains about 100 times the legal limit of radiation, Tokyo
Electric said. The more contaminated water has about 10,000 times the legal limit. The effort would help workers clearing radioactive water from the turbine buildings at the damaged reactors, making it less dangerous to reach some of the most crucial controls for their cooling systems, which were knocked out by the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that struck northeast Japan on March 11. The hopes are that the cooling
systems can be revived and bring the plant back under control. But the pumping effort is not expected to halt, or even alter, the gushing leak from a large crack in a six-foot-deep pit next to the seawater intake pipes near Reactor No. 2. The leak, discovered Saturday, has been spewing an estimated seven tons of highly radioactive water an hour directly into the ocean; attempts to trace and plug it have so far failed.
BREGA, Libya (NY Times) — As rebel fighters made modest gains on Monday against the main body of Colonel Muammar el-Qaddafi’s forces in the oil town of Brega, a senior rebel leader criticized NATO for bureaucratic delays that he said put civilian lives at risk and complicated efforts to advance against the Qaddafi forces. “There’s a delay in reacting and lack of response to what’s going on on the ground, and many civilians have died and they couldn’t react to protect them,” the official, Ali al-Essawi, the foreign policy director of the National Transitional Council, said in an interview on Monday in Rome. Mr. Essawi said the problems began after NATO took charge of the air campaign from the United States, Britain and France, and that he now foresaw a long, drawn-out battle with NATO at the helm. “They took the command, they will make it long,” he said in an interview at the Community of Sant’Egidio, a liberal Catholic group active in diplomacy.

U.S. Forest Service rescues Dad found not guilty of man off Lion Head Trail speeding with wife in labor BY CRAIG LYONS THE BERLIN DAILY SUN
PINKHAM’S GRANT— The U.S. Forest Service Monday rescued a man off the Lion Head Trail after he fell during his descent from Mount Washington. While hiking with a group of people a man, who the U.S. Forest Service didn’t have any identifying information about, slipped, fell and collided with a tree during his descent from Mount Washington along the Lion Head Trail, according to Justin Preisendorfer, a snow ranger for the forest service. The man was believed to have suffered injuries to his upper leg and hip, though the U.S. Forest Service wasn’t sure of the full diagnosis. Preisendorfer said he’s not sure what caused the man’s fall. After the fall, other members of his hiking party called 911, at 10:40 a.m., and went to a first aid cache on the trail to start delivering care before authorities arrived, said Preisendorfer. U.S. Forest Service snow rangers with help from the Appalachian Mountain Club and the Harvard Mountain-
eering Club responded to the scene, packaged the man up, performed a technical rescue, took him down the trail and to the Pinkham Notch Visitors Center, said Preisendorfer. An ambulance then transported the man to the hospital, though Preisendorfer said he’s not sure where the man was taken for treatment. The rescue operation took nearly three hours. The man’s fall occurred about two miles from the Pinkham Notch visitor’s Center. Lion Head Trail follows the ridge that makes up the north wall of Tuckerman Ravine, according to the AMC’s “White Mountain Guide.” It adds the trail is often used as another route along the Tuckerman Ravine Trail, since it begins and ends on that trail. The guide states that Lion Head Trail serves as an alternate route up Mount Washington when parts of the Tuckerman Ravine Trail are closed due to snow or ice. The guide adds that the trail is considered the least dangerous when heading up Mount Washington during the winter months.
MANCHESTER — A Londonderry father who was clocked at 102 mph while rushing his pregnant wife to the hospital was found not guilty of speeding Monday in Manchester District Court. John Coughlin was accused of going 102 mph in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 293 on Sept. 18. State Trooper Francisco Vicente testified Monday that his radar clocked Coughlin going 47 mph over the speed limit around Exit 1, and he began to follow him. Coughlin called 911 while the trooper was behind him and told authorities that he was trying to get his wife, Angela, to Catholic Medical Center. When Coughlin got off at exit 5, the
trooper got in front of him and was able to block traffic at the stop lights and escort him to the emergency room. Baby Kyle was delivered minutes after they arrived at the hospital. After Trooper Vicente helped Angela Coughlin into a wheelchair, he told John Coughlin to go enjoy the moment with his wife and later gave him a ticket. The defense called Angela Coughlin as a witness. She testified that her water broke during the trip to the hospital, and she told her husband that the baby was about to be born. Judge Jay Boynton told Coughlin that he was driving too fast but agreed that, under the circumstances, his actions were justified. —Courtesy of WMUR

Michael Wingfield bringing African New World rhythm & song to Music in Our Schools Arts Jubilee is presenting a four-day performance residency by noted musician, performer and educator, Michael Wingfield, in area schools April 5 to 8. Performances by outstanding artists, known as the “Music in our Schools Program” are presented annually at schools throughout the Mount Washington Valley by Arts Jubilee as an educational contribution to the students in our community. This year’s Arts Jubilee programs will present rhythm and song of the African New World, through instruments such as conga drums, bata, shekere, flute, and voice. Wingfield’s schedule will take him on Tuesday, April 5, to Bartlett School at 10 to 11 a.m., and John Fuller 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. On Wednesday, April 6, he will be at Pine Tree School at 10 to 11 a.m., Conway Elementary at 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. On Thursday, April 7, Michael will spend the day at Madison Elementary, with a performance at 10-11 a.m. and at the school’s invitation, he has been invited to remain in Madison for their school production of “Lion King” on Thursday afternoon. Linda Walker, Arts Jubilee director and music teacher in Madison said the visit by Wingfield which is designed to integrate with the
school theme of the study of multicultures, “will be our culminating activity for our trip to Africa.” The visit to area schools will conclude on Friday, April 8, with a performance at Freedom Elementary at 10 to 11 a.m. Michael Wingfield is a performer and teacher from Portland, Maine, with more than 25 years of experience. He interactively imparts the spirit and history of the African diaspora in ways that speak to today’s issues of diversity. Along with conducting scores of residencies at schools throughout New England, Wingfield was taken on by the Healing Arts Initiative to present at venues such as Crotched Mountain, Vermont Veteran’s Home, and Tewksbury Hospital. Director of the ensemble Cabildo as well as rotating adjunct for Bowdoin College’s World Music Ensemble, Michael’s performing credits include Flora Purim and Airto, Sun Ra, Richie Havens and the Portland Symphony Orchestra. Michael’s love of traditional rhythm and folklore transports his audiences from cultural appreciation to cultural engagement. Parents and friends of the schools are invited to view any of these performances.

–––––––––––––––––––––– LETTERS ––––––––––––––––––––––
Interpretation of law is grossly inaccurate To the editor: On Wednesday, March, 30, a letter, written by Mr. Henry Spencer, was published in this paper claiming that I and Rep. Norman Tregenza egregiously conspired to violate the state’s Right to Know Law (RSA 91. A) I submit Mr. Spencer’s interpretation of the statute is grossly inaccurate. Accordingly, I find his accusations repugnant, offensive, distasteful and deserving of an immediate retraction and apology. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Furthermore, along with an enlightened view of the statute in question, I suggest he familiarize himself with the “Electronic Communications Privacy Act 18 U.S.C. 2510.” RSA 91.A states in part: “For the purpose of this chapter a meeting means, the convening of a quorum of the membership of a public body contemporaneously.” The term “Meeting” shall not include: “A caucus consisting of elected members of a public body of the same political party who were elected on a partisan basis at a state general election.” A social or other encounter shall not constitute a meeting if no official decision is made. The weekend straw poll I took was not discussed among a quorum. What’s more, all of the individuals I polled are of the same political party, elected on a partisan basis, at a state general election. Or, in other words, a caucus, which is not considered a meeting, nor subject to RSA 91.A The straw poll I attempted to do over the weekend related to the $350,000 requested for nurses’ overtime at the county nursing home. I explained that such a figure was inflated and unfair to the taxpayer. I recommended
that the figure be reduced to $100,000 and that the county commissioners be urged to instruct department heads to be more conservative when it comes to overtime. I stated that if the support was not there I would not make the motion. Much ado was made about Rep. Tregenza’s mail as well. I can assure you, his mail was 100 percent more benign than mine. Also, similar to mine, his was not discussed among a quorum and was sent only to caucus members. Mr. Spencer made uncalled for comments relative to Rep. Tregenza’s note wanting to know to whom his mail was forwarded to. I wonder if that could have been to ensure that his mail remained within the legal parameters of a caucus. Under each of the points of law, mentioned above, Rep.

Do you agree with DiGregorio’s strategy to vote for the default budget? Thirteen people responded to this week’s Tele-Talk Question: “Do you agree with DiGregorio’s strategy to vote for the default budget?” Four people agreed to the strategy; six people did not agree. It was not my suggestion or my idea to vote against the operating budget for the school district. Since I had heard others talking about this strategy, I did find it important to ask, and get a commitment from the Conway School Board that they would not spend any more tax dollars than was approved at the deliberate portion of the school meeting. Regardless of how I feel about the budget committee or the school district, I feel very strongly the voters need to keep this battle out of the court system. In an effort to stop the fighting, between two governmental agencies I urge all voters in the town of Conway to vote NO on the Conway School District’s operating budget. Michael DiGregorio. The real backstory to the concern about litigation over the school budget is that in spite of foreknowledge of the 10 percent state rule, the inept and ineffective budget committee proceeded through meetings and special meetings without regard for the law and behaving as if their time has no value, as proven by their worthless deliberations resulting in this “vote no to vote yes” choice. These idiots ought to be tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail. Will the school board challenge the state in court? Who cares. Then entire process has been marred by false threats, obfuscation and public buffoonery. What a swell example of public non-service by a bunch of self-interested fools. I agree with Mr. DiGregorio. His leadership is sound regarding this budget vote issue. If the school board’s proposed budget gets voted in, the Department of Revenue Administration will almost certainly invoke the 10 percent rule, then the likelihood is strong that the school board, the budget committee and perhaps the Department of Revenue Administration will all end up in court, possibly risking up to $30,000 of local taxpayers’ money. What a waste of time money and personnel that would be. Vote for the default budget, avoid the courts, save money. Trust the school board to return the money. They have
a history of returning hundreds of thousands of dollars to the taxpayers year after year. Vote smart. Vote default. This is Ed in Tamworth. This is Curt Tinker in Center Conway. I think DiGregorio’s strategy is good and I think they should keep the $190,000 because they need it to support the educational programs in this town. No way. He wants to pay $190,000 to save $20,000? Besides the school board threat of going to court may not materialize. And if they do, they may lose. In any scenario it would never cost $190,000. I think Mr. DiGregorio’s strategy is plain stupidity and cowardly. It should go to court. I think that whole meeting was a farce, the worst I’ve ever seen, even though I totally back the schools in education. I think the way the moderator handled that there was a disgrace, letting all these people insult all these people on these boards. There was no courtesy and I have complete disrespect for the whole cottonpicking mess. No I do not agree and I’ll tell you why: If the school board and the budget committee were not so fearful of the teachers’ union — particularly the thugs in the union, all supported by the messiah — if there was not such fear of these people and their bullying tactics, particularly this horrible teachers’ union, then the community would have a decent budget and would vote it up or down, there would be no problems. It’s all fear from the Obama thug union — the NEA. In order to answer this question one must start back at the deliberative meeting. This was the worst-run meeting that I have ever attended. I normally try not to attack individuals, but in this case, it all boils down to the fact that the moderator lost control of a very important meeting and didn’t know how to get that control back. The first mistake was made when the school board made a motion for a budget 11 percent above the recommended budget committee figure. I feel if the school board had stuck to 10 percent rule, that we would not be in the mess that we are in today. Regardless of how you feel about the budget, committee, they acted within their rights to do as they did. They felt that an adequate education could be provided with the figures they brought forward. Mike DiGregorio must have been out
to lunch when he made his suggestion that the school board would give back $190,000 if people voted for the default budget. This would be a terrible mistake to go to the polls thinking that this would happen. This is the first time that we as voters are going to the polls and we don’t have a clue what we are voting on or what the outcome will be. We don’t known even as we vote what the DRS will approve as a final budget figure. Will the DRA rule to go back to a figure that meets the 10 percent rule? Will they order us to have another ballot vote once they know what figures we will be working with? I know for me that I have a very bad feeling about this and find it interesting that we go to the polls to vote on April 12, but no one knows for sure just what we are voting for. Patricia Swett, Center Conway. No, I do not agree! Forget about DiGregorios’ strategy. The real story is the fact that the school board would even consider wasting taxpayer money in going to court. McLauchlan should immediately resign from the school board. She is offensive! Nelson, his cohorts, this school board, and this newly formed coalition are unbelievable. They refuse to even justify their outrageous budget with truthful, factual data. They simply play politics. Furthermore, they have arrogantly thumbed their noses at the budget committee’s recommendations. If the DRA implements the 10 percent rule the school board should suck it up and move on. They don’t care about the elderly on fixed incomes. They don’t care about low income families struggling to survive. They don’t care about the unemployed. They don’t even care about higher education. Publicly they will say it’s all about the children. I’ll tell you what it’s all about: their salaries, their raises, their benefits, their pensions! Marvel is right; more can be done with less! Contrary to what the “schoolies” want you to believe, conservatives care deeply about our children and their education, they simply want fiscal responsibility, financial accountability, intelligent curriculum, and meaningful results. Voters beware, there are some people running for budget committee who claim to care about the taxpayer, but they have a hidden agenda; and it’s not about fiscal responsibility. Two of them have already dropped out due to conflict of
interests. Find out who the conservatives are and vote them in! You can start by giving your vote to William Marvel and Linda Teagan. What Mike DiGregorio now proposes is naïve, immoral, unethical and most likely illegal. Thankfully, the school board members led by Klement and Janine have said they will stand by the budget they first proposed rather than agree to this cockamamie scam. This guy needs to tend to his business as a selectman instead of continuing to poke his nose where it doesn’t belong. Oh, by the way, Mike, if you think people would not spend more money if it was there for them to spend, then I’ve got a nice bridge I’d like to sell you. Nauseated. Conway. Approval of the proposed school board budget would likely result in a series of costly lawsuits, with no assurance that existing academic programs would be fully funded. Voting NO on the school board budget, will be voting YES to the default budget, which would be the best option to fully fund the original school board budget and avoid lawsuits and arbitrary cuts by the N.H. Department of Revenue Administration. Both sides of the debate must see that the default budget is the best option for the community to take at this time. But, moving forward, we need to take a close, analytical look at staffing levels, student / teacher ratios, the need for three elementary schools, some form of pay to play, and the teams at the Middle School. But those decisions must be made based on good data and consensus among the stakeholders, not by blind slashing of budgets. Paul Mayer. Money and more money. Why don’t they SAVE money by cutting out all the extras and getting back to the “3 Rs?” This country was built in the 19th and first half of the 20th century by men who were taught only the “3 Rs”. For the benefit of many recent high school grads, the “3 Rs” are reading, writing, and arithmetic. This is Ralph in Eaton. Mike, where do you find the confidence that the school board will “turn back the $190,000 from the default budget, when the question of the 2010 surplus funds of $800,000 went unanswered at the last School Board meeting? Do you still speak for the school board?
I will provide extremely knowledgeable insight to our schools from the viewpoint of an experienced educator To the editor: I am John Skelton, candidate for Conway School Board. With 33 years as a valley resident and educator, 20-plus years as a Conway homeowner, and countless hours spent inside Conway and area schools, I am supremely qualified and knowledgeable to serve this community well as a member of the Conway School Board. Since committing to run, I have been inside all five Conway schools, talked to
three principals, numerous students, teachers, taxpayers and community members. I have spoken with Conway Budget Committee members and SAU 9 and SAU 13 Board members. As a Conway School Board member, I will provide: extremely knowledgeable insight to our schools from the viewpoint of an experienced educator, new ideas, means to reduce spending while improving educational quality, personal honesty, integrity and communication.
By fall 2012, Conway should be running four of its current five schools, with no sacrifice and significant gains to programs and quality of education. For long term success and fiscally responsible management of our school system, this can be done prudently in the next 15 months and create budget reductions for the long term future, and a leaner, more efficient system which is sustainable with our tax base. I look forward to appearing on Valley
Vision, hopefully with all other candidates, in a forum for Conway School Board candidates to further explain my plans for Conway schools in the near future. The Valley Vision executive director is working to put this in place. Or, I may see you at the transfer station, the supermarket, around our schools and in our community. Please vote in this important local election on April 12. John Skelton Conway

Definitely producing Ivy League material To the editor: I am writing this letter in support of the excellent education my children have received in this valley. My son George was the salutatorian of Kennett High School Class of 2009. He attends Princeton University and is enrolled in the School of Engineering and Applied Mathematics. One of his Kennett classmates is a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania. As you can see Mr. Marvel, the “spanking-new facility” you belittle is definitely producing Ivy League material. Many of George’s classmates are also attending well-known, prominent colleges. As a sophomore at Kennett, George scored very well on the biology SAT test. His only exposure to biology before that test was in Kennett’s advanced biology class. At Princeton he had strong grades in chemistry telling his dad and me that he had learned much of the material at Kennett in his advanced chemistry class. He definitely has had limited help from his dad and me. George is the first in both our families to attend a four-year college. Everything George learned before college, he learned at Kennett High School and the Josiah Bartlett School. We realized two years ago that as more and more high school graduates choose to attend college, the competition for admittance has become fierce. If you factor in the impacts of the socioeconomic profile of the valley along with the competition from elite high schools, it is extremely difficult for our graduates to win admittance to top colleges. During my son’s senior year at Kennett, an off-campus interview was arranged for George for a well-known college. When the interviewer for the New Hampshire area realized that George was not a Phillips-Exeter candidate, he refused to interview him. This is what our children are up against. The elite private schools and wealthy public schools have enormous influence over college admissions. Not only do these schools strive to ensure that they meet their admittance quotas to top colleges, but they make certain that their students are afforded educational opportunities that only a few Kennett students will ever experience. Our daughter Vicki is presently a senior at Ken-
nett and, like her classmates, is nervously anticipating the long-awaited college acceptance letters. Wherever she chooses to attend, I know that she will be as prepared as her brother when she goes off to college in the fall. Vicki has excelled academically and athletically at Kennett. She and 23 of her classmates recently received the NHIAA Scholar Athlete Award that requires high school seniors to have a B+ grade point average, letter and participate in two varsity sports, participate in community service and serve as role models to their peers. Many of her classmates have not only excelled academically, but also in the many extracurricular activities offered at Kennett. Nationally, 70 percent of high school graduates go on to either two or four-year colleges. Kennett’s Class of 2010 had 84 percent of its graduates go on to post-secondary education. It seems to me that Kennett is doing a very good job of encouraging our children to further their education by supporting so many of them to take the SAT tests and by holding financial aid nights aimed at making families aware that higher education can be affordable to all. The United States continues to lose ground worldwide in all areas of education. Mr. Sordi of the budget committee wants us all to “share the hurt.” The budget committee’s slash and burn policy is hurting the children of this valley, the ones who don’t yet have a voice in the community. Colleges are not only looking for students with good grades, but they want individuals that will contribute to that college’s community. The colleges are looking for committed students who participate in activities such as athletics, the arts and community service. We owe it to our children to provide the opportunity for a quality education that not only includes academics but the extracurricular activities needed to make them college material and well-rounded citizens. I believe that we have found that opportunity at Kennett High School. I would personally like to thank the Kennett High School teachers, guidance counselors, administrators, staff, coaches and volunteers. Karen Weigold Glen
Report from Concord
Constitutional amendments We have had a very busy last two weeks down in Concord. We met for three days the week of March 14 and two days the week of March 28. At the beginning of the session we establish deadlines for bills to be acted upon. March 17 was the deadline to act on all bills that did not go to a second committee, except budget bills. The result was we had over 250 bills that required votes by the 17th. Committees had been holding hearings and working on bills since early January. It never fails that lots of bills are on the calendar just before the deadline and this year was no different. There were 149 bills on the Consent Calendar. Individual Representatives removed 15 bills. The bills removed from the Consent Calendar are taken up once the Regular Calendar is completed. Some examples of the bills removed were HB 549, relative to driver’s license reexaminations. The committee had recommended ought to pass. This bill eliminates the requirement for all persons reaching the age of 75 to retest in order to keep their license. Following the debate the bill passed. HB 573, relative to the administration of certain pain relief medications by a school nurse was recommended by the committee as inexpedient to legislate. The committee had determined that this bill was not necessary as school nurses are allowed to administer certain over the counter medications providing the medications are included in school policy and providing there is parental consent. A motion was made to table the bill and it passed. The first bill we considered on the Regular Calendar was CACR 9, relating to parental rights. Providing the state shall not abridge the responsibilities of parents for health, education, and welfare of their children. A CACR is a constitutional amendment –concurrent resolution. The bill must pass the House by a three-fifths vote of the entire membership. To pass the House there needed to be 239 votes in favor of the Constitutional amendment. The first vote to be taken was on the Committee’s recommendation of inexpedient to legislate. The vote was 148 in favor and 183 opposed the motion failed. If you agreed with the committee’s recommendation you voted yea and if you did not you voted nay. Representatives Chandler and Umberger voted yea and Representatives McCarthy and Pettengill voted nay. A motion was then made ought to pass. An amendment was offered and it passed 219 in favor and 117 opposed. The amendment only required a majority vote. The motion on the floor was now ought to pass with amendment. Once again a roll call vote was requested. The vote was 212 in favor and 128 opposed the motion failed. Representatives Chandler, McCarthy and Pettengill voted in favor and Representative Umberger voted nay. Although a majority of the House voted in favor of the bill it did not pass because it failed to reach the 60 percent required for passage. A motion was then made to table the bill the vote was 221 in favor and 117 opposed. The motion failed as it required a 60 percent majority to table. A motion was then made to reconsider the bill. It failed 158 in favor and 186 opposed. This was an exciting start to our three days in session. The second Constitutional amendment we consider during the session was CACR 12 relating to funding of public education. The motion was ought to pass as amended. Again 239 Representatives had to vote in favor of the amendment in order for it to pass the House. The vote was 252 in favor and 113 opposed. All four of your representatives voted in favor of the CACR. The text of the Constitutional amendment is as follows: In fulfillment of the provisions with respect to education set forth
in Part II, Article 83, the general court shall have the authority and full discretion to define reasonable standards for elementary, and secondary public education, to establish reasonable standards of accountability therefor, and to mitigate local disparities in educational opportunity and fiscal capacity. Further, in the exercise thereof, the general court shall have full discretion to determine the amount of, and methods of raising and distributing, State funding for education. This CACR will now go to the Senate for public hearings and a vote in the Senate. I should point out that the Senate has also passed a CACR dealing with education which will come to the House for a public hearing and a vote. A third Constitutional Amendment Concurrent Resolution CACR 6 came before the House for a vote. This amendment was in relation to taxation. The CACR requires a three fifths vote on any bill to increase the rate of taxes and fees. The motion was ought to pass with amendment. There was very lively debate on this CACR as currently to increase or add a new tax or fee only requires a majority vote. The vote was 234 in favor and 118 opposed. The motion failed because it did not receive the required 239 votes. Representatives McCarthy, Pettengill and Umberger voted in favor and Representative Chandler opposed. Once the CACR failed a motion was made to table the bill. It passed 341 to 14. HB 540, relative to motor vehicle inspections was recommended as inexpedient to legislate by the Committee. The bill would change vehicle inspections from every year to every two years. There was some interesting debate on the bill. The vote on inexpedient to legislate failed on a vote of 126 in favor and 210 opposed. Representatives Chandler and Umberger supported the Committee’s recommendation of ITL and Representatives McCarthy and Pettengill opposed. Once the bill was defeated a motion was made of ought to pass. The motion passed 243 in favor and 101 opposed. Representatives McCarthy and Pettengill voted in favor and Representatives Chandler and Umberger opposed. The Committee’s recommendation was overturned. HB 457 reducing the interest rate on late and delinquent property tax payments, subsequent payments and other unpaid taxes. The Committee recommended inexpedient to legislate. The bill was to change the interest rate on delinquent taxes from 12 to 6 percent and after a lien is put on the property for unpaid taxes to change the rate from 18 to 9 percent. The first vote was by division, each representative pushes yes or no but how each person voted is not recorded. The vote was 133 in favor and 176 opposed. The motion failed. A new motion was made of ought to pass. This was accomplished by a voice vote and it passed. I have highlighted only the Constitutional amendments and two bills where the House overturned the committee’s recommendation. There was much debate on the many other bills, numerous roll call votes were requested, a couple of bills were returned to the committee and several bills were tabled. If you have specific questions on any of the bills that were voted on please don’t hesitate to call or send me an email at karenu@ncia. net and I will get back to you.

Stankiewicz declined to comment on Marmen’s accusations. School officials are also keeping quiet. “I can’t speak on that matter,” said school board chair James Curran. “It’s a personnel matter.” The computer was inside the custodian’s office, which most people had access to, according to a report from the closed-door school board hearing Marmen got before he was fired. He and two other custodians all used the same computer, and they all accessed it using the same password. Marmen only used the computer to check the weather, order supplies and check his e-mail, he said. The time signatures on the web pages corresponded to when Marmen was working, but Marmen alleges they were changed to make him look guilty. Someone could have changed the time on the computer to make it look like the sites were accessed when Marmen was working, the school’s IT technology director told the school board, but it wouldn’t be easy. The person would have to know how to do it, he said, and it would leave a trail. The other custodians probably weren’t computersavvy enough to hide it if they did it, he said. But there is still a hole in the school board’s logic, according to the attorney who represented Marmen at the hearing. “They couldn’t demonstrate it was Mr. Marmen,” said James LaFrance. “There were several people with access to the computer.” But the school board hearing isn’t governed by the “innocent until proven guilty” axiom that governs legal cases, he said. But that fact doesn’t alleviate Marmen’s frustration. “How can you terminate me me if you’re not even sure if I Wellness for Body, Mind & Spirit
downloaded these images?” Marmen said. “You can’t terminate someone on an assumption.” Marmen was away on vacation in early December when Stankiewicz reportedly opened the browser history and stumbled on the porn sites. Stankiewicz immediately reported it to Madison Elementary principal Brian Ernest. “As with any personnel matters, they’re strictly confidential,” Ernest said. The school put Marmen on paid leave right away and set up a hearing for Feb. 1. Superintendent Jay McIntire recommended the school board fire Marmen for two reasons: for accessing inappropriate material on a school computer, and for reporting he was working while surfing porn. “I obviously can’t comment on a personnel matter,” McIntire said. The time stamps convinced the school board it was in fact Marmen who accessed the sites. They did not believe Stankiewicz had the “sophistication” to pull off the frameup Marmen accused him of, according to the school board’s report from the hearing. But even if it wasn’t Marmen who accessed the sites, the school board would have still let him go. “The board further finds that even if Mr. Marmen did not access those images, he is responsible for those images,” the report said. The reason? The school’s Internet use policies: “Account owners are ultimately responsible for all activities under their accounts.” Marmen didn’t log out of the computer in his office, the board said, which he shared with others and was available to almost anyone, so he should be held responsible. “I was set up and virtually thrown under the bus,” Marmen said. “I’m not ashamed of anything. I’m not lying.”

budget is $33 million. How much more do you think the town should spend on the school system in the next five years? “I don’t know that they need to spend more but find out-of-the-box ways to deliver it. • Would you have supported the budget committee’s recommended 11 percent cut to the school budget or any cut? “No. • In your opinion what’s the single most important factor that makes a school great? “The children.” • What do you think can be done to improve communication between the school board and the budget committee? “People working to help understand everyone’s perception.” • Do you feel there are any areas within the school budget that can or should be cut? Please explain. “Yes, I feel we need to start finding more grants and go after them. In that area I would support hiring a full-time grant writer.” • With enrollment dropping across the district would you support closing a school? “No.” • Much has been made about the team teaching approach at Kennett Middle School where there are currently four teams. Principal Kevin Richard has stated the time to cut a team of teachers would be when enrollment dropped below 300
students. The projected enrollment next year is below 290 students. Should we cut a team, or what would you do? “Yes, but I also feel that we need to see how this would affect the educating going on in the middle school.” • The district currently offers an expanded course offering to the extent that hip-hop and fashion management are offered. Is there a course (s) that you would like to see offered at the high school? “Depends on the enrollment.” • What do you think our school district should offer for an education? Is it more than the old days of reading, writing and arithmetic? “I think we need to keep the core but also look for the future.” • How do you feel about the N.H.

are competing against, and they can’t do this unless they are properly educated. We need to make sure that our standards of education remain current with the changing times. We need to keep technology updated and all of our teachers well informed. We need to accomplish all of this with little or no expense to the taxpayers, and that will not be an easy task.” • What specific skills do you feel you bring to the position? “As a financial advisor with over 1,000 active clients, my financial and communications skills are put to the test every day. Prior to becoming a financial advisor, I was a building contractor and the knowledge gained from that experience helps in discussing and making recommendations regarding our school, facilities, repairs and maintenance.” • How do you plan to balance the needs of the (town, school, police department) with the needs of the taxpayers? “Everyone needs to communicate on a level playing field. Once this is accomplished, we can begin to set our strategies in the hopes of being unified in our decisions.” • Will you be supporting the school board budget ($33 million) or the default budget (roughly $190,000 more than the school budget)? “The school budget.” • The current school budget is $33 million. How much more do you think the town should spend on the school system in the next five years? “Obviously, with the economic conditions we face today increases must be kept to a minimum, or better yet have none at all. This being said, we also need to stay up to date with all of the current changes to technology and education. If money needs to be spent, we should try to find cuts to help defray expenses. I feel
we should strive for a zero-increase budget over the next few years and include only those increases that are beyond our control.” • Would you have supported the budget committee’s recommended 11 percent cut to the school budget or any cut? “No. If they had proposed a realistic figure, I would have considered supporting it depending on how and where the cuts were proposed.” • In your opinion what’s the single most important factor that makes a school great? “As school is great with a combination of quality teachers, a solid administration and a great bunch of children willing to learn.” • What do you think can be done to improve communication between the school board and the budget committee? “It has to start from scratch. The incoming board and the budget committee have to sit down together right away and develop a plan together in the hopes of never having anything happen like this current situation what we find ourselves in.” • Do you feel there are any areas within the school budget that can or should be cut? Please explain. “All of us can stand to lose a little bit of weight from time to time. Yes, I do feel there is a little fat that could be trimmed. I also feel that it’s the administration’s job to do the trimming because they know where the monies are best spent. Financial responsibility is a large task and a constant battle. We
all hope that one day the battle will be won, but it can only be won by working together.” • With enrollment dropping across the district, would you support closing a school? “We have touched on this subject before. We have had committees research this. If closing a school would remedy all of our problems, it would be an easy decision. At this time, I would not support the closing of any school. Though, if enrollments continue to decline, we would have to reopen this subject and do whatever we have to in order toy keep our budget in check.” • Much has been made about the team teaching approach at Kennett Middle School where there are currently four teams. Principal Kevin Richard has stated the time to cut a team of teachers would be when enrollment dropped below 300 students. The projected enrollment next year is below 290 students. Should we cut a team, or what would you do? “If enrollment for the 2011-2012 is in fact below 300, I would support the reduction of one team.” • The district currently offers an expanded course offering to the extent that hip-hop and fashion management are offered. Is there a course (s) that you would like to see offered at the high school?
“I think our course choices are very well rounded. I don’t see any need for further expansion at this this time.” • What do you think our school district should offer for an education? Is it more than the old days of reading, writing and arithmetic? “No. We have to keep up with the times; otherwise our children will wind up taking a backseat when applying for colleges or looking for jobs.” • How do you feel about the N.H. House of Representatives this week passing a bill that will lower the dropout age from 18 down to 16 with parent consent? “I don’t necessarily agree with this, although it will help all SAUs eliminate any further expenses they would incur trying to police the 18-year-old policy.” • Budget committee member Ray Shakir was booed out of the annual school meeting for suggesting there should be limits on the amount of money spent on special education students. Do you agree or disagree with his position? “Every person deserves a right to be educated. I am proud to see the strides we have made in our special education department and hope we continue to provide a caring and professional environment for all students.”

skills I bring to this position is experience. In addition, I am honest, fair and reliable. I also approach all issues with an open mind.” • How do you plan to balance the needs of the (town, school, police department) with the needs of the taxpayers? “As individuals, we constantly look for ways to balance our needs with our wants. As a school board member, that balance is expanded to reach all community members in our school district. I want to be sure that we are delivering a great education along with a budget that is efficient, fair and affordable.” • Will you be supporting the school board budget ($33 million) or the default budget (roughly $190,000 more than the school budget)? “I will be supporting the budget that the school board originally proposed and presented to the budget committee.” • The current school budget is $33 million. How much more do you think the town should spend on the school system in the next five years? “There are so many factors that make up the school budget it is hard to say how much money needs to be allocated over the next five years. Ideally, I would want to be able to maintain a great education without undue burden on the taxpayer.” • Would you have supported the budget committee’s recommended 11 percent cut to the school budget or any cut? “As the school board representative to the budget committee, I did not support the 11 percent cut to the school budget.” • In your opinion what’s the single most important factor that makes a school great? “The students. If the students are not engaged and enthusiastic about their school and with learning, no school, no matter what is offered, will ever be successful.” • What do you think can be done to improve communication between the school board and the budget committee? “I think it would be beneficial for budget committee members to attend regular school board meetings (which take place twice a month) so that they can stay current with what is happening in the schools.” • Do you feel there are any areas within the school budget that can or should be cut? Please explain. “If we continue to face increases in health insurance premiums and reductions in state aid, we may need to find alternative ways to fund certain programs.” • With enrollment dropping across the district would you support closing a school? “If the enrollment numbers continue to drop, yes, I would support closing a school. However, I would want to be sure that no student would have to accept anything less than a quality education as a result of the closing.” • Much has been made about the team teaching approach at Kennett Middle School where there are currently four see next page

teams. Principal Kevin Richard has stated the time to cut a team of teachers would be when enrollment dropped below 300 students. The projected enrollment next year is below 290 students. Should we cut a team, or what would you do? “I would not be in favor of cutting a team until the actual enrollment drops below 300 students and Mr. Richard has had a chance to develop a viable teaching alternative to the four-team approach at the middle school.” • The district currently offers an expanded course offering to the extent that hip-hop and fashion management are offered. Is there a course (s) that you would like to see offered at the high school? “I think we always need to be open to new ideas and stay current with the needs of the students.” • What do you think our school district should offer for an education? Is it more than the old days of reading, writing and arithmetic? “Our students are facing a great deal of competition for college placement, scholarships, career opportunities, etc. In order for them to have the proper tools to take on these challenges, they deserve an education that supports their goals.” • How do you feel about the N.H. House of Representatives this week passing a bill that will lower the dropout age from 18 down to 16 with parent consent? “I believe it should remain at 18.” • Budget committee member Ray Shakir was booed out of the annual school meeting for suggesting there should be limits on the amount of money spent on special education students. Do you agree or disagree with his position? “I disagree.”

potentially mean that less of an education will be provided for future students than I was privileged to receive. I have a firm grasp of local issues and will present creative, fiscally prudent solutions to our educational challenges.” • What would you like to accomplish as a school board member?
“1. Change the tone and quality of public discourse surrounding our schools and financing issues by providing openness, honesty and integrity, foresight and long-term vision. “2. Promote a top-quality public education for all students of all abilities in our schools, while improving efficiencies and providing fiscal prudence. “3. Encourage a man-
agement style which is open, empowering and engaging the support of all elements of community.” • What specific skills do you feel you bring to the position? “Knowledge of our schools, community and children drawn from experience inside all Conway schools, at extracurricular events, in a wide variety of community events and
functions. An educator, not a politician. Open communicator.” • How do you plan to balance the needs of the (town, school, police department) with the needs of the taxpayers? “Get a handle on the big picture: Conway is supporting five physical structures, and the student population could be superbly educated in four.
By a rational school merging, closing one building, the related infrastructure, substantial portions of administration, and limited teaching position reductions, great taxpayer and real savings from economies of scale which will be sustained into a future with stable or declining enrollments.

sold with proceeds to offset taxes or provide bond-payment reductions.” • Will you be supporting the school board budget ($33 million) or the default budget (roughly $190,000 more than the school budget)? “I will abstain. As a Conway citizen, I am appalled to be presented with school budget options which require a decision that is removed from Conway voters to the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration, lawyers or the Attorney General.” • The current school budget is $33 million. How much more do you think the town should spend on the school system in the next five years? “Through closing a school by fall of 2012, thus reducing administration, custodial needs, and maintenance funds, and selling of the capital asset of one school, future annual school budgets for the next five years should be less than $33 million. “Also, selectively prudent reductions of teaching positions attained through a) more classroom teaching load by some middle school teachers and more student instructional time by some high school teachers, and b) small increases in class size averages. The school board will be in improved position to create a more attractive salary structure for teachers. Fewer teaching positions, at higher pay/position, keeping overall salary and benefits costs in control.” • Would you have supported the budget committee’s recommended 11 percent cut to the school budget or any cut? “No.” • In your opinion what’s the single most important factor that makes a school great? “Outstanding teachers and support personnel working directly with students who possess great teaching skills and who are empowered and passionately committed to positively impact students.” • What do you think can be done to improve communication between the school board and the budget committee? “Earlier and more frequent direct interaction between boards (not e-mails or letters). Consistent representation at each others meetings and joint meetings.” • Do you feel there are any areas within the school budget that can or should be cut? Please explain. “See above: one school and related costs, administration reductions, economies of scale.” • With enrollment dropping across the district would you support closing a school? “Yes.” • Much has been made about the team teaching approach at Kennett Middle School where there are currently four teams. Principal Kevin STARKEY from page 11
• What would you like to accomplish as a school board member? “As a school board member I would like to continue to support positive communication between all taxpayers in Conway through data, intelligent discussions without fear or intimidation resulting in a positive outcome for an excellent education for each child in Conway and sending towns.” • What specific skills do you feel you bring to the position? “Skills I bring are listening to residents of the town and sending towns. Working in the community I can listen
Richard has stated the time to cut a team of teachers would be when enrollment dropped below 300 students. The projected enrollment next year is below 290 students, should we cut a team, or what would you do? “I would not presume to manage Mr. Richard’s decision of this spring for the 2011-12 school year. Looking to 20122013, I would have early involvement in plans regarding school merging and team and class reconfigurations. Driving factors should be educational excellence and delivery of full programs.” • The district currently offers an expanded course offering to the extent that hip-hop and fashion management are offered. Is there a course (s) that you would like to see offered at the high school? “Current curriculum offerings are sufficient for a school of KHS size. Would like to see senior year projects, independent study initiatives and externships type of programs expanded. In extracurriculars, a chess club will be needed at KHS, continuing the interests of current KMS avid chess players. Also academic extracurriculars should be promoted whenever possible, for example: math team, debate club, science team, Youth in Government.” • What do you think our school district should offer for an education? Is it more than the old days of reading, writing and arithmetic? “More than reading, writing and arithmetic. Schools have always provided more than that. In the second decade of the 21st century, public schools must incorporate technology education, both to educate efficiently and in a manner to prepare modern citizens, learners and contributors to community. Education should be appropriate to the needs of all learners, providing appropriate levels of challenge for the wide array of students served in our schools, from those with severe challenges to those with superb gifts and talents.” • How do you feel about the N.H. House of Representatives this week passing a bill that will lower the dropout age from 18 down to 16 with parent consent? “This is a decision which should fall under parental prerogative.” • Budget committee member Ray Shakir was booed out of the annual school meeting for suggesting there should be limits on the amount of money spent on special education students. Do you agree or disagree with his position? “No. Federal Disabilities Acts of 1970s were and are wholly justified. “Regarding financing issues surrounding state and federal mandates, Conway School Board should be a leading voice, through school board associations, and political activism, advocating state and federal funding to support state and federal mandated initiatives.” to the residents from all walks of life and hear their thoughts and concerns about the cost of education.” • How do you plan to balance the needs of the (town, school, police department) with the needs of the taxpayers? “You balance the needs of the town by working together as a team, not committee against committee, addressing the needs of the town, school and police department through honestly, professionalism and open communication using resources and critical thinking.” • Will you be supporting the see next page

school board budget ($33 million) or the default budget (roughly $190,000 more than the school budget)? “I will support the current school board budget as the majority of school board members did. We tried to do what was right and lower the budget from last year.” • The current school budget is $33 million. How much more do you think the town should spend on the school system in the next five years? “How much does the town have to spend in the next five eyes does not have a black and white answer. There are many gray issues and variables. I believe the school board will keep the cost down as much as it is feasible. The gray areas we cannot control are fuel, food insurance and mandated legislation, just a few examples of what there is no controlling.” • Would you have supported the budget committee’s recommended 11 percent cut to the school budget or any cut? “No I would not support the budget committee’s recommended 11 percent cut to the school budget. In a community, the town’s committees are suppose to work with one another for positive outcomes not create an outcome of mass destruction.” • In your opinion what’s the single most important factor that makes a school great? “The single most important factor that makes a school great is the entire community. I had the opportunity to be part of a U.S. history class project with Mr. Mark Ross, Kennett High history teacher, and 31 of his students. The project was based on President Kennedy’s inaugural speech in 1961. ‘Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.’ The day was much like that cold snowy day in January of 1961. The class consisted of a group of students from different diversities. “Working together bringing baked goods, making up signs, setting up tents, making coffee, laughing, talking, respecting one another, having fun with one factor in mind, raising $505 in two hours for a young child stricken with a rare form of cancer. The people that donated to the bake sale on an average were the members of our community, the members of the fixed income population, our father’s grandfathers and retired military. Each individual that came out that day kept my faith that our community wants a great education for the children of their community. The interaction between the young and old was amazing, respecting one another, talking, having intelligent conversation. The day made me realize the majority of the voters of Conway want our students of today to succeed and become well-rounded adult members of our community of tomorrow.” • What do you think can be done to improve communication between the school board and the budget committee? “I joined the board this summer and if I could have done it all over again I would have gone to more budget meetings. But the ones I attended or watched on television is everything we teach our children not to do: bullying, disrespect, fictional information, inability to communicate with one another. I think we need to start without the basic plan tell the truth, respect one another, be professionals, and to work on the same
goals to provide a positive education for the children of today who will be the taxpaying citizens of tomorrow.” • Do you feel there are any areas within the school budget that can or should be cut? Please explain. “We have already suggested and made cuts to the school budget for this year. That is why I am promoting the current budget offered.” • With enrollment dropping across the district, would you support closing a school? “I know research has been done for this in the past which stated it was ineffective, but again the enrollment is a variable and I do not have a crystal ball to predict the future. If it comes to a point where the student population drops a significant amount, it may become reality.” • Much has been made about the team teaching approach at Kennett Middle School where there are currently four teams. Principal Kevin Richard has stated the time to cut a team of teachers would be when enrollment dropped below 300 students. The projected enrollment next year is below 290 students. Should we cut a team, or what would you do? “If enrollment drops below 300 I would take the direction Mr. Richard has suggested all along by dropping a team. Currently we have 320 students at the middle school.” • The district currently offers an expanded course offering to the extent that hip-hop and fashion management are offered. Is there a course (s) that you would like to see offered at the high school? “It is so wonderful we have such wellrounded students with so many aspects of diversity and we can provide courses that they are passionate about. Who would have thought that Kennett’s Dance Team was invited to perform in front of 17,000 spectators at a televised Boston Celtics game, and I know of a 2009 graduate who is doing her internship for Elle magazine. Go figure.” • What do you think our school district should offer for an education? Is it more than the old days of reading, writing and arithmetic? “I leave the curriculum of our students up to the current educators and administrators. I am not an educator; I only support them as a board member. They are doing an outstanding job. Why fix something that is not broken? The new classes at the high school in English are filled of real life and critical thinking and being created to stimulate young minds.” • How do you feel about the N.H. House of Representatives this week passing a bill that will lower the dropout age from 18 down to 16 with parent consent? “I am very discouraged with the New Hampshire House of Representatives passing a bill that will lower the dropout age to 16 from 18. I only can hope that our governor vetoes it. It discourages me to see the positive results of the dropout rate being so low and to change the plan I do not understand the mission.” • Budget committee member Ray Shakir was booed out of the annual school meeting for suggesting there should be limits on the amount of money spent on special education students. Do you agree or disagree with his position? “Every child has a right to an education. It is the law and our commitment as citizens of this country. As far as Mr. Shakir, if you cannot say something nice about someone do not say anything at all.”

Mark Staples, 54, of Tamworth, died suddenly on Sunday, March 27, 2011 of natural causes. He was the son of Walter and Mildred Staples and the youngest of nine siblings. He grew up on Turkey Street and attended K.A. Brett School and Kennett High School. Though he spent some years living away from New Hampshire, he had been home in Tamworth for a number of years. He was a master craftsman bricklayer by trade and an avid fly fisherman. He could be found on the rivers and ponds of Tamworth and beyond when the trout were in season and was proud to have introduced his daughter and granddaughter to the sport. He also enjoyed many annual trips to Newfoundland to fish for Atlantic Salmon, but he loved his children, grandchildren and family most of all and never hesitated to lend a hand or sympathetic ear when asked. He collected antique radios, was an avid reader and trivia buff and liked to do crossword puzzles. Mark was a true man of New England, with a dry sense of humor that kept him quiet until the time was right to make his point in a memorable way. Mark is survived by his wife Yvonne; children, Nathan, Sky Ladd and her husband, Josh, and their children, Elaina and Asher, and his youngest daughter Bailey; his sisters, Mary Holladay, Barbara Meader, and Rebekah Pugh; brothers Dan, Russ and Jim as well as numerous cousins, nephews, and nieces. He is predeceased by his parents Walter and Mildred, stepmother Ginny, brother Stephen, and sister Dinah. Services will be Saturday, April 9, at 11 a.m. at the Tamworth Congregational Church on Main Street
in Tamworth. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Remick Museum and Farm 58 Cleveland Hill Road, Tamworth NH, 03886 in memory of Mark for the purposes of supplying loaner fishing poles to the museum’s young visitors who otherwise might not be able to participate in the sport of fishing.

The family of Janet Smith is sad to announce that in her 96th year, she passed away March 29, 2011 in perfect peace at her home in Fryeburg, Maine. In good health, she had talked with many of her family that day, had supper and a warm bath, went to bed and with her beloved dog Aubie at her feet and she fell asleep forever. Born in New Zealand, Janet married Ralph Randall Smith, U.S. Marine Corp, during World War II. She arrived as a war bride in the United States on a blacked out troop ship with her infant daughter, Marion, to join Ralph. They led a full and adventurous life, including eventually adding a son, Ralph Jr., to the family. Much of their time was spent at 23 Anawan Road in North Attleboro, Mass. and more recently in Fryeburg, Maine. The outdoors played a large part in their lives, and after several camping trips to Canada they bought property on Georgian Bay which would become a major influence. Janet believed her time “on the bay” contributed to her envious longevity. Even after Ralph Sr’s passing in 2006, she continued to spend up to four months with family and friends at the cottage. Sad to see her go are her daughter, Marion Wheeler and husband, Don, of North Bay Ontario, Canada and their family, Andrew Wheeler and his wife, Tanya, and their children Sierra, 8, Ella, 6, and James Wheeler and wife, Rebecca, and son, Calvin, 7; her son, Ralph Smith Jr. and his wife, Cindy, of North Fryeburg, Maine, and their family, Meghan Smith, Allison and Randy Jones and Jennifer Smith; her brother, Bob McVie, and numerous nieces and nephews in New Zealand, with whom she had visited on many occasions; she is also remembered fondly by her many friends who have sent kind comments on her life as they learned of her passing. Janet’s grandchildren and great grandchildren were a special joy to her. And she will be very pleased that Aubie will remain in the family with James, Rebecca and Calvin. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. in her

Hi! My name is Narla Narla is a beautiful long-haired calico. She came in as a stray so we don’t know much about her background. What we do know is she has had it tough since she was found. She had a cyst that broke open and she needed emergency surgery. Needless to say, she has a long scar and not much hair has grown back on her side where the cyst was removed. She could use some tender loving care from a tender loving heart. She has a wonderful personality and is very sweet.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are well aware that you don’t have to over-spend your hard-earned cash to dress with style. You’ll add to your wardrobe, and you could even come up with a new signature look. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You love people who don’t take themselves too seriously, because it allows you to let your guard down and just be yourself. You’ll encounter someone like this today, and you’ll both have a good chuckle. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your most endearing qualities come to the fore on this carefree day. You will favorably engage others, even complete strangers, with your curious, playful approach. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your love of beauty disallows you to purchase anything that falls short of your standards of elegance. What you want is not always immediately affordable, but eventually you find a way. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be doing different types of work and will benefit from taking a moment to switch gears between tasks. Tonight: Remember to turn up the charm, and you’ll have social success. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 5). You’ll display your visionary powers, and others really catch on to your train of thought. In honing your leadership qualities, you’ll shape the future. Good luck in May will broaden your financial horizons. Family additions happen in June. July brings a welcome change of pace. Relationships will be a source of fun and adventure. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 2, 44, 38 and 16.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Too much thinking could prevent you from diving in and getting things accomplished. You can effectively calm the internal chatter through exercise, breath work or being in water. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). No one is young forever. Whether you are enjoying your own youth or someone else’s, revel in it for the exquisite gift it is. Let the fresh energy inform all of your senses. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will benefit from noticing what’s going on outside of your life and world. The enlarged perspective not only helps you to feel better about your life, but it also allows you to make an informed move. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your priorities are obvious. You value beauty, comfort and quality and surround yourself with the same. Your environment will be a lovely haven for those around you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your mettle will be tested as you meet with a situation that requires you to take a mindover-matter type of approach. The task may be uncomfortable, but if you just do it, it will be over soon enough. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Assuming that you already know something would be dangerous now. Instead, keep your eyes wide open in the spirit of wonder and curiosity. This attitude will lead to amazing good luck. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You would always rather be one who brings energy into a room instead of one who sucks energy out it. It will take effort, preparation and a proactive gesture in order to accomplish this today.

Today is Tuesday, April 5, the 95th day of 2011. There are 270 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 5, 1951, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were sentenced to death following their conviction in New York on charges of conspiring to commit espionage for the Soviet Union; co-defendant Morton Sobell was sentenced to 30 years in prison (he was released in 1969). On this date: In 1614, Pocahontas, daughter of the leader of the Powhatan tribe, married English colonist John Rolfe in Virginia. (A convert to Christianity, she went by the name Lady Rebecca.) In 1621, the Mayflower sailed from Plymouth Colony in present-day Massachusetts on a monthlong return trip to England. In 1792, George Washington cast the first presidential veto, rejecting a congressional measure for apportioning representatives among the states. In 1811, English philanthropist Robert Raikes, a promoter of Sunday schools, died in Gloucester, England, at age 74. In 1895, Oscar Wilde lost his criminal libel case against the Marquess of Queensberry, who’d accused the writer of homosexual practices. In 1964, Army General Douglas MacArthur died in Washington at age 84. In 1976, reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes died in Houston at age 70. In 1986, two American servicemen and a Turkish woman were killed in the bombing of a West Berlin discotheque, an incident which prompted a U.S. air raid on Libya more than a week later. In 1988, a 15-day hijacking ordeal began as gunmen forced a Kuwait Airways jumbo jet to land in Iran. In 1991, former Sen. John Tower, R-Texas, his daughter Marian and 21 other people were killed in a commuter plane crash near Brunswick, Ga. One year ago: An explosion at the Upper Big Branch mine near Charleston, W.Va., killed 29 workers. In a televised rescue, 115 Chinese coal miners were freed after spending eight days trapped in a flooded mine, surviving an accident that had killed 38. Today’s Birthdays: Movie producer Roger Corman is 85. Country music producer Cowboy Jack Clement is 80. Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is 74. Country singer Tommy Cash is 71. Actor Michael Moriarty is 70. Pop singer Allan Clarke (The Hollies) is 69. Writer-director Peter Greenaway is 69. Actor Max Gail is 68. Actress Jane Asher is 65. Singer Agnetha (ag-NEE’-tah) Faltskog (ABBA) is 61. Actor Mitch Pileggi is 59. Rock musician Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) is 45. Country singer Troy Gentry is 44. Singer Paula Cole is 43. Actress Krista Allen is 40. Country singer Pat Green is 39.

YOUNG MAN WANDERS ADRIFT IN SEA OF CONFUSED EMOTIONS
DEAR ABBY: I’m a 21-year-old male who feels lost and unfulfilled, and it’s because I don’t know what I want or deserve. I am one of three adopted children. I was the child who always needed the family support system the most. I come from a not-so-happy family, one with all its priorities centered around money. (Or, more accurately, lack of money.) I never felt the love a child should feel from his family. My problem these days is my alcohol intake. I can’t stay away from beer. I drink to forget my family problems and the fact that I can’t seem to get anything right. I dropped out of college because I don’t have a passion for anything or anyone. I used to have hobbies -- like writing, photography, etc. -- but the beer has taken away my motivation and creativity. I feel I’m losing my will to keep trying. I want so badly to keep trying, but my emotions are keeping me down. I just want something new, something I can give my all to, something that won’t hurt me in the future. -- WHAT CAN I DO? DEAR WHAT CAN I DO?: I’m glad you wrote, because I know of a group that may be able to give you the emotional support you need to get back on track and regain control of your life. It’s Emotions Anonymous. Founded in 1971, it has 850 chapters worldwide and 450 in the United States. It is a 12-step program for people experiencing emotional difficulties. In these groups, members help each other by sharing experiences, strengths and hopes in order to improve their emotional health. It also offers books and literature to new and existing groups. The email address is eainfo(at)emotionsanonymous.org and its website is www.emotionsanonymous.org. DEAR ABBY: Back in second grade I was friends with “Jessica.” A girl named “Kristy” started at my school, and I
became friends with her, too. She didn’t want me to be friendly with Jessica, and before long I began to pick on Jessica with Kristy. It reached the point where Kristy and two other girls wrote some mean things about Jessica on the blacktop. I didn’t write anything, but I got in trouble, too. I knew I’d made a mistake and hurt her, and I felt bad about it. A year or so later I apologized for what I had done. Jessica said it was OK, but I continued feeling guilty over the years for having teased her and not resisting peer pressure. When I was in high school, I sent her a message online and apologized again. Although she said again it was OK, I feel she still holds some resentment, and I don’t blame her. We’re both adults now, and I see her when I shop at the store up the road from my house. Each time I’m in the checkout line she’s working in, I get a cold attitude. I have told her I was wrong and have tried to make it up to her. Do I leave it alone or keep trying to reach out to her? -- HEAVY HEART IN MAINE DEAR HEAVY HEART: Find some other way to expiate your guilt. Jessica has told you twice that you’re forgiven. Leave her alone because for you to keep bringing up what had to have been a painful (although closed) chapter in her life at this point is creepy. If you can’t do that, then please, shop someplace else or stand in a different checkout line. DEAR ABBY: When one person owes another person an apology, does it count as a legitimate apology if the word “but” is tacked on at the end? I think adding “but” takes away from the admission of fault and places the blame back on the person owed the apology. Am I right? -- WAITING FOR AN APOLOGY DEAR WAITING: Yes, you are. When someone adds “but” at the end of an apology, he or she is trying to justify whatever the offense was. And that’s not a true apology.
