Controversial ﬁnancier George Soros hosts ‘Crisis and Renewal: International Political Economy at the Crossroads’ BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
BRETTON WOODS — National and international press are expected to join a high proﬁ le of international economists at what is being billed by some as the “second Bretton Woods Economic Monetary Conference,” to be held at the grand Omni Mount Washington Resort Hotel, April 8 through 11. Entitled “Crisis and Renewal: International Political Economy at the Crossroads,” the conference is to be held at the the 1902-built grand hotel, which hosted the ﬁ rst Bretton Woods Economic Monetary Conference in July 1944. This weekend's event is sponsored by the Institute for New Economic Thinking — a non-proﬁ t founded in 2009 with a $50 million pledge from controversial world ﬁnancier George Soros. According to the Institute for New Economic Thinking website, more than 200 academic, busi-

TAMWORTH — The county's Blue Loon transit system has gained momentum since starting in December, and the system manager hopes to have more transportation services online soon. Currently, the Blue Loon operates like a taxi service within three zones between the Mount Washington Valley and Ossipee. As of the end of March, the Blue Loon gave about 1,200 rides, said Carroll County Transit System Manager Ted LaLiberte. About 225 people use the service on a regular basis. Riders schedule rides in advance, and then a bus will take them places they need to go. The bus service operates Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Social network tools have two edges (NY Times) — Ofﬁ cer Trey Economidy of the Albuquerque police now realizes that he should have thought harder before listing his occupation on his Facebook proﬁle as “human waste disposal.” After he was involved in a fatal on-duty shooting in February, a local television station dug up the Facebook page. Ofﬁcer Economidy was placed on desk duty, and last month the Albuquerque Police Department announced a new policy to govern ofﬁ cers’ use of social networking sites. Social networking tools like Facebook and Twitter can be valuable assets for law enforcement agencies, helping them alert the public, seek information about crimes and gather evidence about the backgrounds of criminal suspects. But the Internet can also get police departments into trouble. Public gaffes like Economidy’s — his cynical job description on Facebook was “extremely inappropriate and a lapse in judgment on my part,” he said last week in an e-mail — are only one of the risks. A careless posting on a networking site, experts say, can endanger an ofﬁ cer’s safety, as it did in Santa Monica, Calif., last year when the Police Department went to great lengths to conceal a wounded ofﬁcer’s identity and location, only to have a retired ofﬁ cer inadvertently reveal them on Facebook.

Libyan rebels say airstrikes killed 5 ZUEITINA, Libya (NY Times) — Airstrikes on a rebel convoy killed ﬁ ve people on Thursday, several rebel ﬁ ghters said, raising the possibility that for the second time in less than a week NATO warplanes might have mistakenly attacked rebels on the ground. While some rebels said they thought the attack might have been carried out by a plane belonging to the forces
of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, the commander of rebel forces, Abdel Fattah Younes, said it seemed to be a case of “friendly fire.” Speaking at a news conference in the rebel capital of Benghazi, he said the rebels accepted that mistakes can happen in the jumbled circumstances of the war but would like an explanation from NATO, which assumed control of the air campaign
Aftershock complicates Japan’s nuclear efforts TOKYO (NY Times) — The strongest aftershock to hit since the day of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan rocked a wide section of the country’s northeast Thursday night, prompting a tsunami alert, raising fears of further damage to the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant and knocking out external power at three other nuclear facilities. The public broadcaster, NHK, said there were local reports of injuries, ﬁ res and blackouts. The aftershock had a magnitude of 7.1, according to
the United States Geological Survey; last month’s quake, which devastated much of the northeastern coast, was measured at 9.0. The tsunami alert, which warned of waves of up to three feet and possibly higher in some areas, was lifted after about an hour and a half, and the ’Japan Meteorological Agency said no tsunami had been detected. But the agency warned that slight changes in sea level were still possible, and it was unclear whether there was any damage along the coast.
WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The House voted 255 to 172 on Thursday to halt the Obama administration’s program to regulate industrial air emissions that are contributing to climate change, delivering a stinging blow to a central tenet of the president’s energy and environmental policy. Nineteen Democrats joined virtually all Republicans in approving a bill that bars the Environmental Protection Agency from acting on that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases endanger human health and the environment. The measure also nulliﬁ es a 2007 Supreme Court ruling that gave the agency the authority to issue regulations to curb those emissions. President Obama has threatened to veto any measure that hinders the administration’s efforts to restrict emissions that scientists say are warming the atmosphere and leading to unpredictable and potentially devastating changes in the global climate.

Reporter from N.H. House budget could end taken prisoner in Libya shellﬁsh ﬁshing in state BOSTON — The Boston-based GlobalPost says it has been informed that one of its American freelance contributors has been taken prisoner by forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhaﬁ. Spokesman Rick Byrne said GlobalPost was told Thursday by the New Yorkbased Human Rights Watch that James Foley, of Rochester, and three other foreign journalists were taken captive Tuesday evening while they were reporting on the outskirts of Brega. “Their vehicle was shelled or rocketed or whatever,” said Foley’s father, John Foley. “They stopped the vehicle, and didn’t know where the blasts were coming from. As soon as the vehicle stopped, the Libyan Army Group dragged him out of the car.” John Foley said he and his wife, Diane, learned about noon Thursday that their son had been captured.
The Foleys said they are in close contact with their son’s employers and experts with Human Rights Watch. So far, what they have heard about previous releases of captured journalists in Libya has them optimistic. Byrne said editors at the website, which focuses on international reporting, last heard from Foley on Monday evening. Byrne said Foley regularly contributes videos and dispatches from the scene. Philip Balboni, GlobalPost CEO and president, said in a statement the news organization has asked the Libyan foreign media ofﬁ ce for the immediate release of Foley and the other detained journalists. John and Diane Foley said they have been told that the Libyan loyalists grant captives a call home, so they will be waiting by the phone. —Courtesy of WMUR
Police: Pipe forced into dog’s throat in animal cruelty case SANDOWN — A Sandown woman has been charged with animal cruelty after one of her boyfriend’s dogs died and the other is being treated for injuries. Jamie Labbe, 33, was charged with six felony counts of animal cruelty, and bail was set at $30,000 cash after her arraignment Thursday morning. The dogs were taken to Brushwood Veterinary Clinic, which conﬁrmed that the injuries were severe, police said.One of the dogs, named Pebbles, was taken to Angell Memorial Medical Center in

closing the shellﬁsh areas, it would take three years of water tests to win federal approval to reopen them, he said. Shellﬁsh harvesting areas are periodically closed temporarily when pollutants, viruses or organisms that cause red tide are detected, but the state has not shut down all harvesting areas since the mid-1980s. The state licenses three commercial oyster farms in the estuary and three mussel operations in the Atlantic Ocean. In 2009, the state issued 1,400 recreational licenses for harvesting soft shell clams and oysters. An additional 1,300 people age 68 and older are allowed to harvest for free. Licenses aren’t needed for blue mussels and surf clams. Carey was the only commercial operator to sell shellﬁ sh in New Hampshire last year. He sold some oysters locally and others to the wholesale markets in Boston and Maine. Doug Grout, chief of New Hampshire’s ﬁ sh and game marine ﬁ sheries division, said the state’s impact on the region is extremely small but still important. Carey started growing oysters on 1.5 acres in 2007 and has applied to add another 1.5 acres to his farm. It takes about three years for the oysters to grow to a marketable size of at least 3 inches, worth up to 65 cents each. In 2009, he sold a few thousand. Last year, he sold 24,000 oysters, and this year, he expects to sell 100,000. —Courtesy of WMUR

Boston for emergency surgery. That dog died from its injuries. The other dog, Magic, remained at Brushwood and was given a 50 percent chance of survival, police said. According to police, the veterinarian who treated Pebbles said that a pipe had been lodged in the dog’s trachea. The veterinarian told police that the dog couldn’t have swallowed the pipe, and it must have been forced into the dog’s throat. —Courtesy of WMUR
CONCORD — Will Carey gave up helping stage Broadway shows four years ago to stand knee deep in water, seven days a week, farming oysters in Little Bay. Now that he’s about to turn a proﬁt, shellﬁ sh harvesting could be shut down after lawmakers slashed the funding required to test the water. “I’d lose everything. I’d be in debt the rest of my life,” said Carey, 32, of Newmarket, who had hoped to pay back his $150,000 in start-up loans in the next three years. “It’s terrifying.” A $302,000 spending cut in the $10.2 billion budget the House approved last week would shut down the state’s commercial and recreational shellﬁ sh ﬁshing beginning July 1. Environmental Services Commissioner Tom Burack said shellﬁ sh operations by aquaculture farmers, recreational clam diggers and others would be stopped because the state could not meet the federal standards to test the water to ensure the shellﬁsh are safe to eat. If the state stops testing the waters, the federal Food and Drug Administration would take New Hampshire off the list of states adhering to national shellﬁ sh sanitation guidelines. Once that is done, other states won’t buy shellﬁ sh from New Hampshire and local ﬁ sh outlets won’t want to take a chance either, said Chris Nash, the state’s shellﬁ sh manager, whose job would be eliminated. If the state restores funding after

Drinkhall is honest, does his homework To the editor: On April 12, one week from today, the voters of Conway will go to the polls and vote for members of various committees. Bob Drinkhall is running for re-election to the board of selectmen. I would strongly recommend that all voters, regardless of political persuasion, vote for Bob. Bob is honest, always does his homework
and presents his ideas and facts in a very clear fashion. He always spends the time necessary to comment on any given situation. Bob has lived in Conway for over 30 years and successfully run at least two private businesses over many yars. He is a very level-headed man. Please vote on April 12. Douglas M. Swett Center Conway
Few Kennett sports items are on WMUR To the editor: I just got through reading about Allie Wagner’s being robbed of the New Hampshire Division II Girl’s Basketball Player of the Year award, in the article written by Lloyd Jones. I follow Kennett’s sports and watch for any items about the teams on WMUR TV. Very few, if any, do I see there. Why is
this? Is not any attempt made to do this? Are we too far north, the Arctic Circle too close? Maybe someone could do something about this. Is there anyone in that N.H. Division II that has an ax to grind with Kennett? Exposure is the name of the game. Anyone? Ron Weir Chatham
Selectmen could undo mistake they made To the editor: Lost in Ossipee They lost their ﬁre chief. They lost their ﬁre truck. They lost their town lines. Why should I pay the ﬁnes? I know this isn’t funny. But they stole my money. The three selectmen, Moe Leavitt, Larry Merrow and Curly Maloney. All are full of baloney.
They made a mistake That could be undone They could do what’s right And I could sleep real tight. Instead I sit and write. At midnight. Live free or die. You’re killing me. Barry Ennis Tuftonboro

Gamed Is it just us, or do other taxpayers think the school budget has been gamed? Despite hearing a year’s worth of rhetoric about ﬁ scal responsibility from the school board, voters at the polls Tuesday will choose between two budgets that are bigger than last year’s. One budget, the one cut by 11 percent by the budget committee and then fully restored at the deliberative school meeting, is $33.3 million, up about $800,000. The other one, the default budget is $190,000 higher than that. Taxpayers need look no further than to the school meeting to understand how this happened. There, instead of allowing the 1,000 or so who attended to discuss and vet the budget on their own, the school board essentially set the agenda and tone of the meeting when board member Janine McLauchlan made a motion to fully restore the 11 percent cut. In doing so, the school board missed a golden opportunity to both give voters better choices at the polls, and to publicly repudiate the budget committee. The 11 percent cut was clearly too severe for most taxpayers to stomach, and had that option made it to the ballot, the default budget easily would have prevailed, giving the school board a budget even bigger than its own, and justiﬁcation to denounce the budget committee. The school board also failed to support the best option, which would have been to restore all but 1 percent of the budget committee’s 11 percent proposed cuts. That would have given voters realistic choices between a budget about the same size as last year’s and one about $1 million more. The all-but-1-percent choice also would have removed the legal cloud that now hangs heavy over Tuesday’s vote. At deliberative school and town meetings, the state mandates budgets cannot be changed — either up or down—by more than 10 percent.
When McLauchlan made the motion to change the budget by 11 percent, she effectively put into motion a scenario where the state may arbitrarily chop the budget by 1 percent, which it would do by cutting the warrant from the bottom up. That would mean no money for special articles, except the union contracts. Funding for everything from Project SUCCEED to ﬁ xing the leaky roof at Conway El would be eliminated. To top it off, the school board has said as an alternative to responsibly absorbing the consequences of state-mandated cuts, it would likely sue the budget committee to undo its 11 percent on the grounds it acted irresponsibly. So what it looks like is the school board at school meeting knowingly supported a budget which not only deprives voters of a meaningful choice the polls, puts the school system at risk to arbitrary cuts by the state, but exposes the taxpayers to tens of thousands of dollars in lawyers’ fees for a unproductive ﬁ ght that would pit two Conway governmental boards against each other. And in a ﬁ nal act of irony, the Coalition for Educational Excellence, usually a shill for the school board, is throwing its weight behind the default budget with the naive expectation the board will return to taxpayers the $190,000 difference in the two budgets. So what is the best option for reasonablyminded voters? There isn’t a good one, actually, but we’ll vote for the school budget. It is the smallest of the two budgets, and we’re willing to take the chance the state won’t cut the budget, which we understand is not automatic and far from certain. From there, we’d then try to convince school board members not to be the fools they would be if they embroiled the town in an expensive and wasteful lawsuit.

This show of force by the unions in Wisconsin is one big joke To the editor: I don’t know about the rest of public but I am so sick and tired of the public unions crying about losing their ability to hold taxpayers hostage to their own beneﬁ t. I have to speak out. I am in complete agreement with the governor of Wisconsin. This show of force by the unions in Wisconsin is one big joke. I don’t see one sign that shows how much the unions really care about the kids. What makes the public unions think that they deserve better than what the average nonunion worker can afford when it comes to salaries and beneﬁ ts? Why should we be assessed more taxes to pay for salaries and beneﬁ ts for someone else that we can’t afford ourselves? Why should the public unions be guaranteed anything? Are we guaranteed anything? My point is this: The unions give contributions to Democratic politicians who in turn negotiate contracts with the same unions and if they have an impasse, a mediator steps in. His only function is to get two sides together without regard to you or I. We have nothing to say about the outcome because our state Democratic legislators have stacked the deck in favor of the unions with laws they have passed. What the
heck, as long as I get mine, the hell with the rest of us; it’s only a few more dollars on the tax bill. By the way, why is AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka visiting the White House two to three times a week as he said,” I am in contact with the White House on a daily basis.” I guess Mr. Trumka you have a right since the unions are the biggest political contributors to the Democratic party giving over $400 million in 2008. What is going on President Obama? I thought you were going to be open and transparent. Another thing, Mr. President, why haven’t you been in contact with some of your cabinet members since you’ve been president? Have your czars taken over for these cabinet members? One more thing, Mr. President, aren’t you glad you stopped the drilling for oil in this country? When shall we start drilling, when the price of gas gets to $5. A gallon or more at the pumps? Is everybody happy with “Change you can believe in?” As for me, I’ve had enough change. I think we need one big change that would straighten out this country. Bob Terravecchia Center Conway

I suggest: Vote on everything but the school budget To the editor: As a resident of a sending district, I don’t have a vote regarding the Conway school budget, but I do have an opinion. It seems to me any vote on the budget is irrelevant in that the issue was already decided at the deliberative session. Voting against something usually is an expression of dissatisfaction, except if the alternative is worse, as it is in this case. If you vote no for the school budget,
then you will be tagged with the more onerous default budget. My suggestion then is to vote on everything else but the budget. If enough people do that, it would be, at the very least, an indication of your displeasure of not being able to vote yes or no with a real alternative in mind. At best, it would express your disapproval of the irrationality of the process. Stan Solomon Albany
Critical time to ask good questions, not act impulsively To the editor: Commerce is down, unemployment is high, we’ve borrowed all we can, and expenses are growing. As a result, we face budget crunches, at local, state, and federal levels. As political factions have advanced their solutions, the debate has become intense. And I am frightened by the oversimpliﬁcations, and by the self-interest, that pose as wise counsel. Deregulation and tax cuts, “Reaganomics”, and lax monetary policy set the wheels of the “Great Recession” in motion. Since 1980, the wealthy have grown wealthier, and the working classes poorer. By 2007, it was no longer possible to hide the damage, and a series of crises ensued. Three years later, after intensive efforts at national and international levels, there was reasonable hope for economic stability and slow return to growth in productivity. Events brought the celebration to an
abrupt end. Count revolution in North Africa, with military action a new front and rising oil prices. Add an earthquake and tsunami, with dramatic impact on global manufacturing and trade, and nuclear pollution. Suddenly, things seem even less certain. And as fear rises, the chance of prudent action wanes. Will removing French classes from the high school position us to understand our European allies? Will slashing the state budget for mental health services lead to a jump in 911 calls and emergency room visits? Will lowering the dropout age make our workforce more productive? Will tax cuts for the wealthy “trickle down” to the working man? Will foxy health insurers guard the Medicare henhouse wisely? It’s a critical time to ask good questions, rather than acting impulsively. It’s time to learn from past mistakes, not repeat them. E. Michael Kahn Intervale
Disppointed with Guinta’s votes attacking protections To the editor: In response to the story: “Towns approve groundwater protection ordinances.”: It is so refreshing to read that the constituents of New Hampshire are concerned about groundwater pollution. While this shows great initiative, it seems that our representatives in Washington are not hearing our clean water and clean air concerns. Recently, my member of Congress, Representative Guinta, sided with big polluters and voted for a bill (HR 1) in Washington that attacks critical protections for clean air and clean water.
These attacks on our air, water, and land are unacceptable. The bill would have blocked limits on dangerous carbon pollution from coal-ﬁ red power plants in New Hampshire and nationwide, putting our health and environment at risk. I am extremely disappointed that Representative Guinta is voting for legislation that attacks my health and the health of my family. Now it’s up to our Senators Shaheen and Ayotte to stand up for protecting public health and reject attacks on our air and water. Tessa Mandra Dover
Charles has proven history of business leadership To the editor: I write to express my support for Brian Charles for the Conway Budget Committee. I have know Brian and his wife, Sarah, for about 10 years. Brian has started two successful businesses in the valley, including the North Conway Music Shop. I believe that as a Conway business owner, Conway homeowner, Conway taxpayer and parent, Brian Charles understands that improving the quality of education with ﬁ scal responsibility are not mutually exclusive. Brian’s leadership and community service include serving on the boards of the White Mountain Waldorf School and Rockhouse Property Owners Association.
Professionally, Brian is a Julliard trained professional classical musician with many recordings, Broadway and commercial credits. Brian Charles has a proven history of business leadership, ﬁscal discipline and commitment to the Mount Washington Valley. He cares deeply about the economics and quality of education and town management. I believe he will stand up for the residents of this valley in an effort to keep taxes low, and priorities straight. I again urge you to vote for Brian Charles for Conway Budget Committee on April 12, because quality education is not a political issue, it is a community issue. Bob Schrader North Conway

Who pays for it? Much has been heard and read in the last few days relative to collective bargaining for government employees. First off, let’s get something straight. The use of the term “government employee” is misleading and totally inaccurate. By deﬁ nition, according to our state constitution, all elected government ofﬁ cials are merely the agents of the people acting in their stead. Governments don’t grow money ... The taxpayer pays all the bills. Therefore, the term “taxpayer employee union” would, most certainly, be a much more accurate description of such a group. Even Franklyn D. Roosevelt, who was absolutely against “Taxpayer unions,” stated: “Collective bargaining cannot be transplanted into the public service, where the employer is the whole people.” What happens when a union in the private sector makes outrageous demands? Most often, for one reason or another, the demands are met. The following year it happens again, and then again, and then again, until the business is forced to raise prices so high, their product is no longer competitive and the business either goes bankrupt or moves to a friendlier climate ... like Mexico. General Motors comes to mind. I have no problem with that scenario; the morons who gave in to the unions deserve no less. “Taxpayer employee unions” are very different in that all governments are monopolies. The town, county, state, each has only one governing body. What happens when “taxpayer employee unions” make outlandish demands? Taxes go up and up and up. They have to, like FDR said, “The employer is the whole people.” All one has to do is to look at the 118 percent in school tax increases over the last 10 years and what that has done to your taxes. Again, over the years, some moron, or morons had to approve those school contracts. Why would a sane individual do such a thing? There are many reasons. Union donations and pay offs, a grab for power, egomania, a sympathetic bias, naïveté and, believe it or not, an attitude that dictates “who cares,” it’s not my money. In my opinion, however, it all really boils down to an almost innate thirst for power on the part of unions. It is unconscionable that any worker in this great state should have to pay union dues whether he or she is a union member or not, just to keep their job. But then again, where do you think they get all that money to buy politicians? To illustrate my point, digest these ﬁ gures: In the last 10 years the four largest “taxpayer employee unions” donated $118,000,000 — that’s one hundred and eighteen million dol-
It is unconscionable that any worker in this great state should have to pay union dues whether he or she is a union member or not, just to keep their job. lars — to the democratic party or its candidates while Republicans received the paltry sum, in comparison, of $4,500,000 that’s four and a half million. Let me give you just a sampling of what you, the local the taxpayer is being stuck for resulting from outlandish demands from various “taxpayer employee unions.” The county nursing home has spent more than $1.1 million dollars in the last four years on nurse’s overtime. Not total overtime mind you, just overtime for nurses, and they have requested $350,000 for this year. That’s $1,000 a day in overtime coming out of your pocket. Why? They tell us that the union contract dictates as much. Also, that $1,000 a day adds substantially to retirement costs, which the taxpayer is also stuck for. The county commissioners will spend more than $2.4 million this year alone on its “taxpayer employee unions” Cadillac health insurance programs. On top of that, the contracts I’m familiar with require a yearly premium increase of up to 10 percent. I wonder how many of the bill payers, have a, so called, Cadillac policy. Social security recipients, military retirees, and others on ﬁ xed incomes have not received cost of living increases for several years. Not to worry. “Taxpayer employee union members will make up for it. Aside from their normal step raises, longevity raises and promotion raises many will also get a yearly 2 percent cost of living raise...Even if the consumer price index nosedives 10 percent. Again, it comes out of your pocket. I could go on a great deal longer, but I think you get the picture. When it’s said that curtailing the “taxpayer employee unions,” even to a reasonable degree, is somehow taking away a right, I would really like for someone to cite the article in either the federal or state constitution that bestows that right. When unions become so powerful that they are able to bankrupt one of the largest corporations in the world and then end up, owning it... it’s time to make changes.

The Real March Madness
Back in October, 2010, we heard Republican hopefuls slandering Democrats as “tax and spend liberals” while promising a balanced budget, jobs, cuts in spending, lower taxes, jobs, responsible governance — and jobs. A disenchanted electorate, fearful of rising deﬁ cits, a disintegrating economy, and depression-era unemployment, bought into the well-ﬁ nanced propaganda and sent the GOP newbies to Concord. We were promised a gold mine of good government; so far, all we’ve gotten is the shaft. The angel of ﬁ scal responsibility has transmogriﬁ ed into a specter of misogyny, cruelty and deprivation. The party that claimed moral supremacy has revealed itself as a wrecking crew with an expensive agenda of spite revealed in an avalanche of irresponsible, costly, vindictive bills aimed at overturning the progress achieved in the last 12 years of bipartisan legislation. And jobs? Not exactly. So far, the only bills affecting jobs embody wholesale layoffs of public employees. Secure in numbers that appear veto-proof, the GOP has launched an attack on education, voting rights, small business, children, women, retirees, the aged, the military, the disabled, and especially public employees. That includes just about everybody except the wealthy. For them, there is special help. Some 57 bills have been ﬁ led detrimentally affecting education, from the extreme of eliminating state-funded education altogether to various lesser assaults including elimination of support for kindergarten, foreign languages, technical education, art, music, and health; elimination of home-school regulation, rollback of the dropout age to 16, etc. The assault on voting rights has an antieducation element, too. The GOP wrecking crew would eliminate voting rights for those students who come here from out of state, live here during their college years, and — up to now — have voted here. The rationale is brazenly political — the leadership has stated that college students have no life experience and tend to vote for “liberal” causes. But why stop at collegians? The bill would also strip voting rights from active duty military stationed here; men and women ready to lay down life and sacriﬁce limb for us would be denied the right to vote in New Hampshire! Our Republican guardians have introduced legislation to require a photo ID in order for anybody to vote, a direct attack on the elderly, many of whom would be forced to acquire a state-issued ID. The ﬁnal cherry on the voting sundae is the elimination of same-day registration. Not only does that work contrary to the principle of unfettered franchise, but it would require adoption of federally mandated Motor Voter registration, a costly bureaucracy that would be built into the DMV — which would be issuing all those IDs. Another proposed program epitomizes “vindictive.” That is the scheme to require photo ID and drug testing for food stamp recipients. No matter that it’s a federal program that costs us nothing; here is a way to punish poverty at great cost to N.H. taxpayers. Then there’s that crazy N.H. defense force, a standing army ready to repel — what? Vermont? Canada? HB 343-FN is for real and it mandates a standing army — pay no heed to the U.S. Constitution that prohibits state standing armies. Relax, there’s a bill to secede from the union. And even crazier: the measure to lower the cigarette tax by a dime a pack — a possible money-saver in the eyes of one GOP legislator who suggests encouraging smoking and early death will save money on pensions and other social costs! You can’t make this stuff up. Not satisﬁ ed with adding unnecessary expense to the state budget, the GOP has come
up with ways to hurt us by trimming revenue. HB 213 reduces business proﬁ ts tax revenue by $20 million and HB 557 would eliminate taxes on LLCs, proprietorships, and partnerships costing the state somewhere between $25 and $50 million. This, of course, is a direct subsidy for business at the expense of the rest of us. Labor is in for punishment, too. The GOP is pushing hard to get a so-called Right-to-Work law, or as others call it, a Right-to-Work-forLess law. This is an attack on labor unions that eliminates the agency fee, the fee in lieu of dues paid by a non-union member to the union that negotiates his or her labor contract, administers that contract and enforces its provisions for the protection of all employees. Then there is the “midnight amendment” to the budget bill that would deny collective bargaining rights to public employees — a move that would seem to be in conﬂict with the state constitution which forbids appending anything but ﬁ scal matters to a budget bill. Suddenly we’re in Wisconsin, Toto! The ﬁ scal coup d’etat is a proposed constitutional amendment that would require a 60 percent majority to pass a tax bill, a recipe for ﬁ scal disaster. It would make it virtually impossible to raise a tax or fee, locking the state into a budgetary squeeze too tight to admit of adequate education or effective social services. To make doubly certain that the state has no money to fund anything, the legislative majority brain trust is seeking to opt out of federal grant-in-aid programs on the basis that it is wrong for the federal government to give money to a state for a speciﬁc purpose. To accommodate the new spending and added shortfall in revenue the House version of the new budget eliminates the Consumer Protection Bureau from the Attorney General’s ofﬁce; proposes elimination of 761 Department of Transportation workers (the people who plow snow, ﬁ x bridges, repair roads); eliminates the high school dropout prevention fund; and trims $200 million from the Department of Health and Human Services above and beyond what the governor has already proposed wringing from that agency. That would kill off programs dealing with family services, childcare, Head Start, mental health and substance abuse, Alzheimer Disease and Related Disorders & Caregiver Program, mosquito control, tobacco prevention, and elderly services. Eliminating these programs will also eliminate federal matching funds. But the poor can always take comfort in the knowledge that the GOP is working hard to make it possible for anyone to carry a gun concealed, legally without a permit, loaded anywhere in the state — if not too poor to afford one. The GOP attitude toward social responsibility was underlined forcefully by Rep. Martin Harty, R. Barrington, who, in response to a plea to restore funds for the disabled to the budget, expressed his belief in “eugenics’ adding: “I wish we had a Siberia so we could ship them all off to freeze to death and die and clean up the population. If you women didn’t try to give yourself abortions, you wouldn’t end up with defective children.” This is what happens when you stop drinking tea and start smoking it.

Coalition urging a no vote on school budget BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — The Mount Washington Valley Coalition for Education Excellence, a group of business leaders, professionals, parents and educators, is urging citizens to follow the lead of Conway selectman Mike DiGregorio and vote down the school budget Tuesday, allowing the default budget, which is $190,000 more, to kick in. The coalition is the brainchild of Dr. Angus Badger, formerly of the Jackson School Board, and Paul Mayer, owner of Black Bear Realty. Formed in January, the group has quickly developed a presence in educational circles across the Mount Washington Valley and currently has over 500 friends on its Facebook site (www.FaceBook.com/education.excellence) Mayer said Wednesday the coalition is not endorsing candidates for any school ofﬁces, but has taken a stand on the school budget and the teachers' contract, warrant articles No. 5 and 7, respectively. In a ﬂ yer, the coalition explains its rationale behind both votes. On the school budget, which is $33.3 million, the coalition recommends voting against the school budget based upon the review of ﬁnancial and educational impacts. "* 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 funded. "* The community and administration have publicly supported fully funding the original school board's budget based on what will best serve the needs of students and community. "* Voting no on the school budget will be voting yes for 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 New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration. * Members of the school board have pledged not to spend any additional funds from the default budget should it be adopted as a result of the defeat of warrant article No. 5." DiGregorio attended last week's Conway School Board's meeting last week, where he asked four board members — Lynne Brydon, Randy Davison, Dick Klement and Syndi White — whether they would return the $190,000 to taxpayers if the public voted down the school board's recommended budget of $3.3 million in favor of the default budget, which is $190,000 more. He believes the move will keep the town and school out of court. "I have a question I would like the school board members to answer," said DiGregorio, who also emailed the question to the sitting board last week. "There is an effort by some taxpayers in town to vote down the amended school budget in hopes of having the default budget pass. Some believe that this would solve two problems, the ﬁrst one being it would stop any litigation that may occur between the town of Conway budget committee and the school board; and two, it would also send a clear message to the budget committee that the people of Conway will not settle for less than a quality education. "Although I would like all seven board members to take a position on this issue," he continued, "I need a commitment from at least the four current school board members who are not up for re-election. Would each member make a pledge in public that if the default budget ends up being the budget passed, the four sitting school board members agree not to spend any more money than what was voted on by the taxpayers at the deliberative meeting for the school budget?" "I think it would be the ﬁ scally responsible thing to do," Davison, the lone member to respond to DiGregorio's email, said. At the meeting, Klement agreed with Davison while Brydon and White said they would also barring any unforeseen disasters such a roof caving in. Superintendent Carl Nelson explained the board needed to make contingency plans in case the DRA rules to cut the budget. The proposed school budget is $33.1 million — $3.6 million more than what the budget committee had recommended. The default budget, normally a fallback option that limits spending, is $190,473 more than the proposed budget this year. Nelson said the DRA could rule that the default budget may be subject to a 10 percent cut, too. "That's the big unknown," he said. "It's never happened before in the state." see COALITION page 15

I was very active in sports, excelling in skiing, being the ﬁ rst recipient of the Damon O’Neal Memorial trophy. I married Judy Birkbeck in 1963 and lived in Albany for 20 years. I was a member of the Albany School Board, Albany Volunteer Fire Department and planning board. We have four children: Christopher and his wife Robin and two boys live in Fryeburg; Damon and his two children live in Conway; Jennifer and her two boys live in Conway; and William “Lumpa” lived in North Conway with his daughter until his passing in 2009. We adopted Judy’s niece in 2001. All our children have been in the Conway school system and one still is. I was a member of the Elks Lodge 2055 of Conway. I went through the chairs to become Exalted Ruler and held that ofﬁ ce for two years.
I was also bestowed the honor of being noted “Elk of the Year." I was a member of the North Conway Village Association for many years and was on one of the ﬁ rst committees to install skis, tennis rackets and ﬂ ower baskets on the utility poles though out the village of North Conway. I have worked in retail most of my adult life. Just to mention a few, I was manager of the Joe Jones in North Conway for 29 years, Code West, Bootleggers, and HH Brown. I work weekends at Northern Human Services driving clients to and from work. I work for the U.S. Forest Service on the “Kanc” and have for the past 10 years. I also have my own property maintenance business taking care of two shopping centers in Conway. 2. Why are you running? I’m running for selectman because I feel as though I could give valuable input to the board. I have common sense, so I would think things through before making any decisions. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? I would be working on behalf of the taxpayers. 4. What speciﬁc skills do you bring see BRETT page 10

1. Tell us as much as you are comfortable with about your family, work, history in Conway, including volunteering, committee work, or past positions held as a public ofﬁcial. Bob Drinkhall, age 65, raised in Andover, Mass., moved to N.H. in 1974 and have lived at my current North Conway address since 1979. Prior to moving here I worked for a convenience store chain where my last position was advertising and sales coordinator. I later owned and operated businesses in Portland, Portsmouth, and Manchester from 1982 until retiring in 1998 at age 53. I have been a selectman for the last three years, planning board member 10 years and budget committee member six years. Additionally I have been the selectman's representative to ﬁve other 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. 2. Why are you running? With the ongoing ﬁ scal crisis at both the federal and state levels of government, I predict possible challenging times for Conway. With my business background and involvement with town affairs I am conﬁdent I can have a positive inﬂ uence for this critical period. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? To continue the excellent services the town provides at an affordable cost to the taxpayers. This must be accomplished in a fair and equitable manner. One example is utilizing proper user fees for services where possible. I have no agenda to serve, am ﬁscally responsible, and coupled with my
experience can and will carry out the responsibilities of selectman should I be re-elected. 4. What speciﬁ c skills do you bring to the position? See all of the above. 5. How do you plan to balance the needs of the town with the needs of the taxpayers? I will continue to evaluate each issue on its merits and make decisions with careful consideration based on my experience as previously mentioned. This can be extremely challenging considering special interest groups usually come out in force while the average taxpayer remains silent. I do believe I have proven I am up to this challenge to be a responsible ﬁscal manager for the taxpayer. 6. What are the core services you believe the town should offer that aren’t currently? None that I am aware of and if any exist this is not the time, ﬁscally speaking, to introduce any new costs to the taxpayers. 7. What are the services you believe the town provides that are extraneous? I don't believe there are any services currently being provided that are entirely extraneous. That being said there are several which could be provided at a reduced burden and or more efﬁ ciently for the taxpayer. One example will be requiring the proper equipment being provided by the contractor for sidewalk snow removal beginning next season. This has been suggested by me for the past two years and should result in improved sidewalk winter maintenance. Other areas I have suggested or supported are using less sand and salt on winter road maintenance, shorter transfer station hours that will satisfy all concerned, more efﬁ cient street lighting
1. Tell us as much as you are comfortable with about your family, work, history in Conway, including volunteering, committee work, or past positions held as a public ofﬁcial. I have lived in North Conway since 2001 with my wife Tina of 17 years. We have two children: Kobi our son who is 8 years old and attends John Fuller School and our daughter Addey who is 5 and attends Mountain View Montessori. I hold two degrees, one in business management and one in culinary arts. I spent 26 years in the restaurant and hotel business. I owned two restaurants here in town over a seven-year span and learned how to go about business in our community through the peaks and valleys of a tourist-based economy. Currently I am the property manager of Willow Common in North Conway. Willow Common is a thriving mixed residential/commercial property on the strip owned by my family. Most if not all of my spare time is taken up joyfully coaching hockey for Mount Washington Youth Hockey where I also sit on the board of directors. For the past three years I have been a lacrosse coach for MWV Lacrosse, coaching the U9 team. Last fall I coached football for the North Conway Community Center. I was appointed to the Conway garage committee by the selectmen two
years ago and got a taste of politics and enjoyed it very much. I was elected to the planning board last spring and have learned a great deal and enjoy it very much. 2. Why are you running? To give back to the town and to use the knowledge I have already learned as a planning board member. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? To represent the all of the citizens of Conway and to do so without a private agenda. 4. What speciﬁc skills do you bring to the position? Knowledge gained by sitting on the planning board, the garage committee, owning and operating businesses in town and expertise gained by my college degrees. 5. How do you plan to balance the needs of the town with the needs of the taxpayers? By distinguishing what are essential, that is to say, what are the "musts" and what are the wishes. 6. What are the core services you believe the town should offer that aren’t currently? Right now is not the time to revise services because it will inevitably only raise taxes. 7. What are the services you believe the town provides that are extraneous?

using LED technology and increase user fees as opposed to taxpayer subsidized services. 8. Why do you think there are so many candidates running this year? It has been stated at public meetings that many would be signing up to promote their special interest. This being their right, any public ofﬁ cial must be prepared to balance the needs of the overall citizenry not just one segment of the population. It has been stated by some that cost (to the taxpayer) is irrelevant. 9. Apart from public safety, the business community believes turning off street lights and not plowing sidewalks is bad for tourism and business. Do you think selectmen should be more responsive to the interests of local businesses? Without question the responsible public ofﬁ cial must be responsive to the interest of local businesses. This is why I have worked to have a more efﬁ cient method for sidewalk snow removal and better street lighting with the ﬁrst in the state LED lighting trial. This is a tourist-driven economy, every effort must be made to attract visitors and support related businesses. 10. Did you agree with the selectmen’s decision to close the dump on Sundays rather than make town employees work both weekend days? The employee matter was a compromise as it was a question of contractual requirements and the employees loss of overtime they had enjoyed for years. A reduction in hours is necessary if we are to save the taxpayer money and should be considered whether it be Sunday or another day.
Scott Lees That depends on what services are ﬁ nanced by discretionary funds; however, I am not in favor of depriving our children of educational and/or recreational activities. 8. Why do you think there are so many candidates running this year? I believe there is a strong dissatisfaction with the ever-increasing taxes and the inability of some of the current selectmen to just say "no." 9. Apart from public safety, the business community believes turning off street lights and not plowing sidewalks is bad for tourism and business. Do you think selectmen should be more responsive to the interests of local businesses? Yes I do. Regarding the street lights, the risk-reward equation is not a good one. Just one lawsuit will wipe out any savings. I think they should all be turned back on. 10. Did you agree with the selectmen’s decision to close the dump on Sundays rather than make town employees work both weekend days? No, that is when we the working people of this town can make it to the dump. Give the employees two days off during the week, I think the employees of the dump will ﬁnd two days off during the week is quite nice.

ﬁ scal responsibility. I must state that I do not believe ﬁ scal responsibility means we just cut the budget to the bare minimum. It is at this time that we need to look at the long-term consequences of our current budget decisions. I have never considered it ﬁscally responsible to cut spending on a wide scale for education or security (police, ﬁ re, EMS). Educating our youth and providing a community that has good-paying jobs that entice graduates of Kennett who have gone on to further education to return to the valley and become the economic leaders. That is how we get our return on investment for our high school and other programs geared towards our youth in the Mount Washington Valley. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? What I would like to accomplish as selectman is to take the natural economic advantages that we have — tax-free shopping, a hard working and dedicated work force, and arguably the most beautiful scenic area anywhere in this great country of ours — and return our valley to its days of economic prosperity. We as selectmen have to work with local businesses and future companies looking to make a home in an area such as ours. We have spent years ﬁ ghting over how ugly or big a businesses sign is and other silly items that block small and big businesses from making a home in our valley. In my mind nothing is more unattractive than the number of empty and unused buildings in our community. We need to open up a much friendlier landscape to new and old businesses alike. Without these new businesses we cannot help provide jobs for members of our community. 4. What speciﬁ c skills do you bring to the position? The skills I bring to a position of selectman are leadership from my days as an athlete at Kennett to my current position at the department of corrections. I have always been a leader. Leaders are not the ones who think they know it all. In fact, great leaders have the forethought to put the right people in charge of areas of their business or community that they excel in and trust in their skills. This does not mean that we blindly let department heads run their departments without any accountability. In fact, it is quite the opposite. We have to allow these individuals to run there departments to the best of
there ability and provide them with the economic and community support that they deserve to effectively run their department. But with this support these department heads need to be held accountable for a positive return from these investments. Taxes, though mandatory, should not be considered feeding of the economic machine; it should actually be an investment into improving the daily and longterm lives of all members of the tax-paying community. An example of this would be giving the police department more ofﬁ cers. I am all for supporting the men and women that put their lives on the line every day to keep mine and your families safe from crime. But by providing this agency with more help as a selectman and community member, I am going to expect a decrease in crime in our valley. Therefore we give where is needed. The department head (in this case chief of police) is held accountable for his expenditures, and in return we as taxpayers get our return on investment a safe place to live. Which is good for individuals and businesses. A safe and clean community makes for a much more inviting place for tourists to visit. 5. How do you plan to balance the needs of the town with the needs of the taxpayers? I ﬁ nd this question quite interesting, because in my mind the needs of the town are the needs of the taxpayer. Education, safety, services are needs of taxpayer, and the taxpayers make up the town. I ﬁnd them to be truly one and the same. 6. What are the core services you believe the town should offer that aren’t currently? The core service that I would like to see in the future is job training. The better skilled our workers, the better job they do for their employer and therefore the more money both employer and employee can make. We as a community do many customer-service orientated jobs, yet customer service as a whole has dropped dramatically in the last few years. This type of training does not have to fall solely on the taxpayer. This is where getting business and community to work together can be mutually beneﬁcial. Training programs in customer service, management, food service run by the businesses that excel in these areas with some support from the town, leads again to better workers and better businesses. 7. What are the services you believe the town provides that are extraneous?
1. Tell us as much as you are comfortable with about your family, work, history in Conway, including volunteering, committee work, or past positions held as a public ofﬁ cial. I have lived in the Mount Washington Valley for 19 years, having come here for work as a recreation director at a local resort. I presently work for myself as an energy auditor, primarily doing residential audits. Before this my latest work was as an account representative for local radio stations WMWV and Magic 104. My only position as a public ofﬁcial has been a stint on the Conway Planning Board in the late '90s. I volunteer for Jen's Friends, the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire North, and a local church, and have donated "green" auction items to the Mount Washington Valley Green Team and the White Mountain Home Builders. I also participate in local theater, having acted and directed for M&D Productions, Arts in Motion, and the previous Resort Players. I have also performed folk music and opera for local events and open mics. 2. Why are you running? I'm running because I don't think that our present board is acknowledging the voice of its constituents. This came home for me when they made their decision to close the dump on Sundays based on how many constituents came to their 4 p.m. hearings, an inconvenient time for people who work. And as the deliberative meeting showed, people did not want the dump closed on Sundays. Maybe the board of selectmen should meet at a more convenient time for public input, while of course being considerate to town staff by adjusting their work hours accordingly.
As selectman, I will do the research and listen to the people who live in this town and use what they have to say to come up with a variety of ideas. We shouldn't always do the same old thing because maybe there's a way to do it better that is less expensive. I don't want to throw away the things that are working, but I think it's time to take a hard look at things and ask is it the only way to do it? Is it the best way to do it? It may be the answer is yes, but we have to be open to hearing other ideas before we can come to that conclusion. And I don't always have to win on a vote. I want to work with the other board members, but I want to make sure the people of the town are heard and their concerns are addressed. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? To ﬁ nd ways to continue to provide valuable services to the town while looking for ways to do it more efﬁciently or in ways that might cost taxpayers less in the long run, especially in looking at potential savings through weatherization and energy-efﬁ ciency measures. I am a good listener and can then be very creative in coming up with alternatives that could solve the problem. Oftentimes boards get stuck in deﬁ ning a problem instead of moving forward with potential solutions. Many of those ideas may be absurd, impractical or unaffordable, and sometimes we are already doing things the best way with the knowledge available. But if we engage in open discussions, where all ideas are given a fair shot and we listen to each other with respect, then we will accomplish an amazing amount of things. I am not afraid to challenge my thinking.
LOWD from page 10
This is difﬁ cult question. To a 75-year-old taxpayer on a ﬁ xed income with no grandchildren, a new school or foreign language teacher that allows our children the education they need to excel in today's competitive college market may seem extraneous. While to the single mother of two children working two jobs to make ends meet and provide for her family, extra money for elderly may seem extraneous. I think that without seeing all the programs available and their line cost, it would be inappropriate for me to comment on which programs are extraneous. I think as a selectman it is best to get all of the information on all programs and weigh the economic impact to its value as whole to the community. 8. Why do you think there are so many candidates running this year? I think when times are tough, people do one of two things: They ignore the problem or they jump into the deep end and do their part to affect change. I think these are very difﬁ cult times, therefore more community members are affected by decisions made by their local government; therefore the record turnout for all town positions, especially selectman. 9. Apart from public safety, the business community believes turning off street lights and not plowing sidewalks is bad for tourism and business. Do you think selectmen should be more responsive to the interests of local businesses? I think wholeheartedly that selectman should be more responsive not only to current businesses, but also future businesses looking to make a home in our community. 10. Did you agree with the selectmen’s decision to close the dump on Sundays rather than make town employees work both weekend days? Again without having all of the information it would irresponsible of me to comment on this decision, but I will say that all decisions made by public ofﬁ cials can be very difﬁ cult especially in these tough economic times. I think we as a community have to return some civility to public ofﬁ ce and public meetings. Because one does not agree with a person's opinion or decision does not mean that we should resort to rude behavior as leaders of our community. We above all should be role models for the youth of community.
Stacy Sand 4. What speciﬁ c skills do you bring to the position? As a business owner and previous account and program manager, I have often had to look at ways to be creative with resources in order to get the desired results. Pouring more money into things is not the only way to accomplish goals. My experience on the planning board taught me a lot about working with a board and how it is important to get ideas out on the table before making a ﬁnal decision. Also, I will not always be in the majority, and I have learned how to accept that graciously. But I am also a good researcher and hard worker. I have been a town employee before (a recreation director in Wells, Maine) under a town manager system and understand the budget process and ways to work within the directives and budget decisions of the voters. People still remember my time on the planning board because I always treated those who came before the board with respect and attentiveness. I would also bring this to the board of selectmen, as that is what it takes to make a representational decision. And I'm not afraid to make a decision, though I will usually hold off until I have had a chance to gather the pertinent information. 5. How do you plan to balance the needs of the town with the needs of the taxpayers? I think there are many ways to reduce expenses by doing the work to see what's available. For instance, instead of turning off street lights, the town could use LED street lights that use a lot less energy (utility costs) and don't need to be replaced nearly see SAND page 12
Page 12 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Friday, April 8, 2011
as often (labor savings). Besides, there shouldn't be a distinction between what's good for the town and what's good for the taxpayers, as one does not necessarily preclude the other. Taking some immediacy out of decision-making should help. Sometimes the best solutions are reached through a process and over time. 6. What are the core services you believe the town should offer that aren’t currently? Pace funding so people can borrow money from the town to weatherize and make their buildings more efﬁ cient then pay their loan back through their taxes. The town would get interest payments that would pay for the additional administration and people would pay back in increments that are closer to their actual savings with these improvements. This would also help people afford their taxes as these savings in utility bills will be permanent. This program could also help local building contractors, as they would be doing many of these improvements. I hope that our code enforcement ofﬁcer is being trained on the new N.H. Energy Code so that he can incorporate that into his inspections. I also would like to see the recreation department provide more adult opportunities for recreation and not just sports programs. As gas prices go up again, we see more bicycles on the road, so I would like to see a more interconnected bike trail network in the area. This could be a good project for the planning department and could become a regional project. 7. What are the services you believe the town provides that are extraneous? Although I am patriotic and am very grateful for
the country I live in, the only area of the budget that I see as extraneous is the patriotic portion. I love the parades and Fourth of July celebrations, though I think more of the costs could be covered by utilizing our parks in ways that could bring even more income to the town, like maybe having more permanent vendor permits in the downtowns and more visible park events. Now that adult softball and Arts Jubilee have left Schouler Park, it would be nice to bring more events back, so that there is more happening that is easily visible. Some of this is being covered by local business, like the Balloon Fest, but it would be nice to see more regular events that will bring people to the downtown center, like maybe a permanent, seasonal concession at the park, run by the recreation department or a non-proﬁt. 8. Why do you think there are so many candidates running this year? People are not happy with the status quo. Hopefully, these people are running because, like myself, they have some ideas on how to make things better. 9. Apart from public safety, the business community believes turning off street lights and not plowing sidewalks is bad for tourism and business. Do you think selectmen should be more responsive to the interests of local businesses? Absolutely. Businesses provide a good portion of the property taxes in town and should have a say in how the town is run, even if they are not voting residents. How about a town business liaison from the selectmen who attends chamber of commerce and other service meetings that are well attended by business people, like Kiwanis and Rotary? This
1. Tell us as much as you are comfortable with about your family, work, history in Conway, including volunteering, committee work, or past positions held as a public ofﬁcial. My family has lived in Conway since 1947. I am one of 10 children, and I received my primary and secondary education in the Conway School District, graduating from Kennett High School in 1962. I have been fortunate to have lived in California and Massachusetts, but I never forgot where I came from and I have always kept the good things about my hometown close to my heart. I returned to Conway in 2006 to live and opened a business in the village of North Conway. Presently I hold the position of events manager with Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce (MWVCC). The MWVCC membership consists of business people from all facets of the community, including retailers, manufactures, service organization, and professionals. The MWVCC is a catalyst for progressive growth and continued improvement in the lifestyle of the residents of Conway, making this the best place to live, work and play. It is also a marketer of communities it serves, including Conway, by supporting festive and cultural events and community activities. During the years I lived in other places, my children and I spent a lot of time at my family's homestead in Conway. My children were fortunate to learn to swim through programs offered at Conway Lake and Echo Lake. They owe their ability to ski to the Cranmore Ski Program and the adventures of hiking our beautiful mountains to programs offered at the North Conway Community Center. In non-work time I am very engaged in volunteer services. For me, volunteerism is simply a matter of doing the right thing to help to build a stronger community. Rewards and recognition for my service are not important to me. What is important to me, however, is that I know that the work I do is serious, meaningful, and enjoyable and that my life is richer, happier and more satisfying because of it. I have served as a member of the Methuen Historical Commission for the City of Methuen, Mass. I also served as the president of the historical society for four years. 2.Why are you running? I am not running to be critical of the incumbents. I
am running to be the people’s conduit to the town of Conway, speaking for them and moving some of their problems forward. I believe strongly in the importance of community involvement and public service; I support transparent government, which advocates for residents. I do not have any personal agenda. I am a good and unbiased listener, and I will work to make decisions based on the best interest of the constituents I represent. Before I decided to run for Conway Board of Selectman, I took an inventory of all my professional and non-professional activities, including work, volunteer and family responsibilities. Then I gave a great deal of thought to see where and how I could ﬁ t in the considerable new duties the position of town selectman would bring, including eliminating or limiting my involvement in some non-essential activities. I am running for selectman because I think the board of selectmen would beneﬁ t from some new ideas and different ways of looking at the issues. I have a proven track record in town organizations, and I am well versed in the challenges facing the town of Conway. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? I view the position of selectman as a great opportunity to utilize my experiences and serve the town of Conway. What I would like to accomplish as a selectman would be: * Support ﬁ scal responsibility — balancing the needs of the town with the available resources to give our residents the best possible public services that are delivered in a cost-effective and efﬁ cient manner. It is very important that we facilitate a budget that addresses the ﬁ nancial issues our town faces while protecting our schools, our seniors, our taxpayers and our quality of life. * Work with our town leaders to brainstorm ideas to promote a positive business environment and encourage tourism. I would encourage our town leaders to keep abreast of the needs of the local existing business community by meeting with the business community to investigate ways to invigorate the business climate and ensure product readiness for potential new businesses. Conway businesses make huge ﬁ nancial contributions to charities and organizations through our town and they pay taxes, which in turn support our schools, our roads and our town departments. * Foster job growth.

representative could report back to the board like our representative to the planning board and budget committee do. Or even to spread the attendance out among members of the board. I am sure that the business people in this town have many good ideas on ways to provide services while keeping taxes in line, as they have to do this with their own businesses every day. And hoping that these people will attend selectmen's meetings and writing letters with unsolicited "positive" input is probably unrealistic. Unless of course a hot button is pushed like with the lights and sidewalks. As to the street lights, I think we should be investing in the highly efﬁ cient LED lamps that would allow lower operation, though I also think we need fewer lights in certain areas, like the strip, where private businesses provide an overabundance of lighting. As to the sidewalks, I like the idea of sidewalks open on both sides of the street, as I like to encourage walking, though it would be good to survey pedestrian trafﬁc at different times of the year, maybe compare with one side cleared versus both sides at a time like November or early December when lots of shoppers are about. 10. Did you agree with the selectmen’s decision to close the dump on Sundays rather than make town employees work both weekend days? I think the dump should be open on Saturday and Sunday, though I would like to see it closed on an additional weekday, as long as we don't lose too much income from the commercial haulers. If that is a problem, then maybe we could look at extended hours for those haulers on the weekdays that are open and where we could stagger the staff hours to allow this access.
Mary Seavey * Advocate governmental transparency. 4. What speciﬁc skills do you bring to the position? I exhibit a high level of professionalism, can think for myself, always listen to opposing points of view, and make decisions based on the merits of the argument before me. I do this while exhibiting a collegial approach to working as a team. I display a high level of commitment to doing the homework necessary to get a job done; I have excellent ﬁnancial and management skills; and I have the experience and knowledge to be an effective selectman. My background and qualiﬁcations include: * Business management degrees from Salem State College, Salem, Mass., and DeAnza College, Cupertino, Calif. * Over 35 years of management experience in the corporate and private sectors dealing with all aspects of communications, budgets, planning, conﬂ ict management, contract negotiation, delegating tasks and responsibilities, policy implementation and management; and overall accountability for proﬁt and loss. * Managed residential and commercial conservation programs for water, gas and electric utilities; generated responses to federal, state, and local governments RFPs, RFQs and tenders; negotiated and executed contracts; conducted supplier qualiﬁ cations and bidnegotiations; monitored purchasing and stock agreements; handled customer relations, including timely complaint investigations and settlements. * Entrepreneur — established a retail business in North Conway and also worked as an independent real estate agent for RE/MAX both in Andover, Mass., and in the Mount Washington Valley. 5. How do you plan to balance the needs of the town with the needs of the taxpayers? If elected, my top priority would be to work diligently to ensure that we are being as efﬁcient and prudent as possible with our town budget. With the economic outlook looking grim, it is of the utmost importance that the town be responsible with the taxpayers' money. This means trimming excess from the budget wherever it can be found, much the same way as many of our citizens are doing with their own budgets right now. It also means that we continue to seek cost effec see SEAVEY page 13
THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Friday, April 8, 2011— Page 13
tive ways to deliver and share town services both on an intra-department level and with neighboring towns. At the same time, I think that is very important that we continue to support our school system and our police department and the dedicated professionals that work in both the schools and our public safety departments. Their efforts and accomplishments beneﬁ t all of our residents in town and need to be supported and maintained. 6. What are the core services you believe the town should offer that aren’t currently? I look at all the core services our town offers: library, ﬁre, parks and recreation, planning and zoning, police, public works, solid waste/trash/recycling, school system and it is a pretty full menu of “core services.” Expanding affordable housing opportunities throughout the town for senior citizens and low-income residents is of interest to me, but I certainly need more quantiﬁ able information about the demand for affordable housing. There are very active organizations, such as Habitat for Humanity, that I am sure would partner with the town staff, affordable housing providers, stakeholders, activists and concerned citizens to work together to expand on our present affordable housing initiatives
in the town. 7. What are the services you believe the town provides that are extraneous? I do not believe that the town presently provides any “extraneous” services. 8. Why do you think there are so many candidates running this year? I can’t speak for the other candidates who are running, but I can speak for myself. I think that the large pool of candidates is a healthy sign and I am pleased with the number of candidates who have shown interest in joining the board. I actually think it’s great! 9. Apart from public safety, the business community believes turning off street lights and not plowing sidewalks is bad for tourism and business. Do you think selectmen should be more responsive to the interests of local businesses? I think that our town government, including our selectmen, should more proactively support local businesses, especially in the tourism sector, which is a critical component of the town’s economy for the following reasons: Tax revenue generated through tourism helps to develop and maintain our infrastructure (our highways and bridges), our education and health-care systems, and other initiatives for which our town spends money. * Tourism generates many jobs, both direct and indi-
1. Tell us as much as you are comfortable with about your family, work, history in Conway, including volunteering, committee work, or past positions held as a public ofﬁcial. I finished college at UNH on a Friday, moved up here on a Monday and have been here ever since. My wife and I raised two sons who went through Kennett High School and then UNH. Both still reside in New Hampshire. I worked for the USDA – Natural Resource Conservation Service for 36 years as a soil conservationist. I am currently a deputy chief on Conway Fire and Rescue, which I joined in 1973. I have coached and umpired for the Conway Recreation Department, Kennett Junior High and Kennett High School for over 20 years. 2. Why are you running? I am currently ﬁnishing my 10th year as selectman for the Town of Conway. I have a very deep feeling for the town and the valley. I feel the people of Conway have to strive for a balance between the economic growth while protecting the natural resources. I don't have any speciﬁ c agenda other than to try and solve problems for the good of the town. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? I would like to see the tax rate remain at a reasonable rate so senior citizens as well as young people with families can live comfortably within the town. 4. What speciﬁc skills do you bring to the position? My employment with the USDA – NRCS dealt with land-use planning and conservation of the Conway
ﬂoodplain area, which can provide employment, recreation, wildlife habitat, groundwater recharge and storage and scenic beauty for all to enjoy. The 10 years that I have already served have provided me with valuable insight to the desires of residents of the valley. I try to make fair and impartial decisions. 5. How do you plan to balance the needs of the town with the needs of the taxpayers? I try to vote on and present a budget that the voters can afford and understand. It would be nice to approve all articles as presented but I try to only back articles that would beneﬁt the valley residents and not put undue increase on our tax rate. Revenues have decreased but services remain at a very high quality. We have a very talented town staff and highway department that provide high-quality services. 6. What are the core services you believe the town should offer that aren’t currently? I feel the town of Conway provides all necessary services to enable the residents to live a full beneﬁ cial life. I would still like to see the landﬁ ll open all day Sunday and closed Monday and Tuesday. These hours would accommodate more residents within town and visitors prior to returning home. The only services not provided by the town are water, sewage and ﬁ re protection that are picked up by the precincts. 7. What are the services you believe the town provides that are extraneous? I don't feel there are extraneous services. Believe me, I wouldn't want to put my taxes into services that weren't necessary.
1. Tell us as much as you are comfortable with about your family, work, history in Conway, including volunteering, committee work, or past positions held as a public ofﬁcial. I have lived in North Conway for eight years with my husband John and my three children, ages 18, 15 and 13. I love living here and have become increasingly involved in the community and public service. I believe that it is important to be an active participant in town and state government and to stay up to date on issues affecting our community. I have volunteered for many local and school activities over the years. I am currently an elected member of the Conway School Board, where I serve on the policy committee, CEA negotiating team, SAU 9 board, MWV School to Career Inc. board, MWV Career & Tech Center advisory board, and chair the Special Ed Review Committee. I am a member of the Free Ride Skate Park committee, and a member of the
Friends of Mountainview. I also am the chair of the Conway Democratic Committee. Professionally, I have 30 years experience in human services management, educational administration, and most recently as an independent educational advocate and consultant. 2. Why are you running? I am running because I believe the board needs more diversity and some fresh ideas. I would bring the perspective of someone who is currently raising children in town and is acutely aware of the issues challenging families in these tough times. Having worked in human service management in the community, I also have a good working knowledge and understanding of the local non-proﬁ ts and the beneﬁ ts they bring to the residents of this town. I am concerned about our increasing homeless population, crime rates, people without health insurance, the elderly, as well as what will happen as the state cuts its funding to human ser-

rect, for residents of Conway. * Residents gain directly and indirectly from the dollars spent by tourists for accommodations, food and beverage, recreation and entertainment, and shopping. 10. Did you agree with the selectmen’s decision to close the dump on Sundays rather than make town employees work both weekend days? I attended the deliberative portion of the annual town meeting on March 7 and listened to town ofﬁ cials’ reasons for closing the dump, one of them being “personnel’s schedule.” I am sure many other factors came into play in the decision of the selectmen and town ofﬁ cials to close the dump on Sundays, included savings in annual operations and maintenance costs. Based on the information that was provided by the town to the voters at the deliberative portion of the annual town meeting, I did vote to keep the dump open on Sundays. If elected and the issue of closing the dump on Sunday came up for vote again, I would certainly want to ask many residents their thoughts on this issue to make sure I was representing them in my vote and evaluate all facts including, but limited to: * Is Sunday the slowest day of the week at the dump based on trafﬁc counts? * Are union contracts being met? * Is rotation of employees’ schedules an option? * What are the operation and maintenance cost?
David Weathers 8. Why do you think there are so many candidates running this year? I’m not sure why so many people ﬁ led for ofﬁce this year other than possibly being upset with the budget committee and the school budget. A number of people asked me what input the selectmen had on the school budget. Their budget is completely separate from the town. The selectmen have no input on the school budget. 9. Apart from public safety, the business community believes turning off street lights and not plowing sidewalks is bad for tourism and business. Do you think selectmen should be more responsive to the interests of local businesses? The town is still plowing sidewalks other than the east side of Route 16 along the strip when they pick up snow. I didn’t hear from any business people when the town turned off some residential lights to save $35,000. I feel this is being responsive to residents and businesses alike. If anything, the job the Highway Department does on the town roads is really beneﬁcial to ensure the tourists arrive in a safe manner. 10. Did you agree with the selectmen’s decision to close the dump on Sundays rather than make town employees work both weekend days? I don’t feel that closing the landﬁll on Sunday serves the people within the three-town area. This is the second most active day of the week. I would rather keep Sunday open all day and close Monday and Tuesday. I realize that three employees would have to work on the weekend, but this is not uncommon for the valley. This would still protect their job for a full 40-hour week.
Syndi White vices. We need to strengthen our network of support for the local non-proﬁts, and I was alarmed to see that both the selectmen and the budget committee voted against the small amount of funding requests coming from most of these organizations. As their funding decreases, more and more pressure will be put on the town to provide assistance. These agencies actually keep down the costs that we, as a town, are required to provide under the law. I am also hoping to unite the boards in town. I believe that as a member of both the school board and the board of selectman I will be able to enable the ﬂow of accurate information and understanding between the boards. 3. What would you like to accomplish as a selectman? I would like the various town boards to work see WHITE page 14

together toward the common goals in our master plan. Currently they seem to work in isolation. We have retail businesses building out of control, resulting in abandoned strip malls and vacant storefronts. There appears to be little planning, and little effective regulation. Instead, I see the selectman having to waste time enforcing archaic sign, ﬂ ag and balloon ordinances, which do nothing more than restrict businesses' abilities to market and succeed. Time to look at the bigger picture. I would like to see the board of selectman be more responsive to the citizens. Meeting times for public hearings on important issues should be held at various times to ensure people who work can have a chance to attend. Community members' ideas for solutions to ﬁscal and programmatic challenges should be welcomed and encouraged. Selectmen need to plan ahead to address hot button issues, and not wait until they become the subject the Sun's Tele-Talk. Sub-committees addressing speciﬁ c issues, consisting of members of the various boards and interested citizens, should be established. The more people are actively engaged in issues that are important to them, the better we can move forward as a united community. One of the major issues the selectmen will be forced to deal with in the next year is the down-shifting of costs that the state legislature is proposing in their budget. We need to ﬁnd creative ways to meet the basic needs of our citizens and keep our taxes low. 4. What speciﬁc skills do you bring to the position? I have worked with multi-million dollar budgets, both in development and administration. I have successfully negotiated union contracts, supervised employees, and worked effectively with diverse boards. I have experience with public relations, presenting workshops, and advocating at the state level. I have a proven track record advocating for the needs of the disadvantaged, families, children and the elderly and disabled. I also have the ability to look at problems from all sides, to compromise and respect the diverging opinions of others, and to research the information needed in order to make informed, responsible decisions. I have both the experience and knowledge to be
an effective selectmen. 5. How do you plan to balance the needs of the town with the needs of the taxpayers? This is an area that needs to be addressed. The “town” and the “taxpayers” are one in the same. However, there are many in town who separate people into categories, pitting one group against the other. We have seen this happen: the retired against the working, the haves against the have-nots, the people who have lived in town for generations against the newcomers. Parents, teachers, police ﬁ reﬁghters, elderly, retired, second homeowners and business people are all taxpayers. They are the town. The key to balancing the needs of everyone is to prioritize. The number one concern should be safety: maintaining roads and buildings, street lighting, police, lifeguards. Prioritizing the services that are meaningful to the people and then coming up with ways to provide those services more efﬁciently is the key to living within a budget and keeping property taxes low. We need to start thinking outside the box and be willing to do things differently. Working cooperatively with the business community and with non-proﬁ t organizations, we may be able to to form partnerships to address the needs of the community, where the town may have to reduce funding to services it traditionally was able to fully fund. 6. What are the core services you believe the town should offer that aren’t currently? I don't think the town needs to offer more services, but I do think we need to work with people and organizations outside of town government to ensure that the basic needs of our residents are being met. 7. What are the services you believe the town provides that are extraneous? I don't think there are any services they offer that are extraneous. The selectmen have been very conscientious about keeping every line item as low as possible. 8. Why do you think there are so many candidates running this year? I think that when decisions are made on issues that directly affect them or they feel passionately about, people become motivated to get involved and make their voices heard. I think it is great that so many people want to step up to the plate and participate in our town government. see next page

COALITION from page 8
The coalition is urging citizens to support the teachers' contract and listed four reasons to do so. "* The proposed teachers' contract represents an increase of 1.09 percent after two yeas without raises or cost of living adjustments. "* The proposed contract would increase starting salaries to attract better teachers, limit salary increases for our senior teachers, and start toy constrain health-care costs by means of higher co-pays for services and prescriptions. "* The current starting salary at Kennett is the lowest of all K-12 school districts in New Hampshire. The proposed starting salary would be 147th out of 158, still $4,603 (20 percent) below the state's average starting salary. "* The proposed teachers' contract would be the ﬁ rst in the state with a deductible plan, resulting in substantial future savings, even assuming town funding of the deducible for some teachers."

9. Apart from public safety, the business community believes turning off street lights and not plowing sidewalks is bad for tourism and business. Do you think selectmen should be more responsive to the interests of local businesses? I think there always needs to be a fair balance. The town needs to be more responsive to the needs of businesses in terms of town rules that hinder the effectiveness of marketing and the success of the business to operate in this town. The town needs to be active in attracting new businesses which will provide jobs that pay living wages and will reduce vacancies in existing space. The town boards should work together with the business community to solicit ideas to reduce empty retail space in
ﬁlled and they have access to the most competitive post-secondary school opportunities." It is also to "promote a reputation for educational excellence as a critical element of our community's economic viability, speciﬁ cally as it impacts business development and retention, sustained property values, and social diversity." Mayer and Badger view the coalition as "a valley-wide forum to discuss and promote public education," and said, "The coalition’s mission has resonated among parents, educators, and business leaders in the valley. The group seeks to improve our student outcomes by (1) developing smart, system-wide goals and accountability, (2) promoting the connection between great schools and a strong local economy, and (3) making the school system and educational issues relevant to a wider spectrum of voters. People interested in changing education for the better in Mount Washington Valley are being welcomed to attend and participate."

town and create a business friendly climate which will attract a more diverse business base. Basic services, such as plowing sidewalks and providing lighting should be dealt with fairly and decisions made with common sense as to the value to the community and the businesses. 10. Did you agree with the selectmen’s decision to close the dump on Sundays rather than make town employees work both weekend days? No, I did not agree with the decision to close the dump on Sundays. This is an example of an issue
on which the selectmen did not listen to the people who utilize the service. Sunday is the busiest day of the week. I know there were many people who wanted to give public comment who were working during the times the hearings were held. There was no announcement of where/whom to email to send a comment to be read into the record at the meeting. The selectmen based their decision on the fact that few people showed up to comment against the plan. They need to be more proactive in soliciting the public's comments on important issues.

take the PSATs as a junior which is before the SATs," he described from the school's library conference room, Thursday afternoon. "Then based on your score, if you're in the 99 percentile, then you get registered. There are tens of thousands of people who are in that. After that they make a few more cuts from there to bring it down to day to say 16,000 who are the semiﬁnalists. "At that point," Sullivan continued, "you send in an application with your high school transcript and your actual SAT scores and some other information about yourself. Recommendations and essay, all that good stuff. It's a pretty lengthy process and from there they break it down to the ﬁ nalists which I think there are around 15,000 out of over a million who took the test." According to the Website Wikipedia, of the 1.5 million entrants, about 50,000 qualify for recognition. More than two-thirds of those qualiﬁ ed receive Letters of Commendation; about a third of the 50,000 become semiﬁ nalists, about 94 percent of whom go on to become ﬁnalists. Over half of the ﬁnalists are selected to receive scholarships underwritten by corporations and business organizations, colleges and universities, and by the corporation with its own funds. Of the 15,000 ﬁ nalists, about 8,200 receive Merit Scholarship awards. All ﬁnalists are considered for one of the 2,500 National Merit $2,500 Scholarships, which are awarded on a state representational basis "All winners of Merit Scholarship award are chosen from the ﬁ nalist group, based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments — without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference," the website www.nationalmerit.org states. "A variety of information is available for NMSC selectors to evaluate: the ﬁ nalist's academic record, information about the school's curricula and grading system, two sets of test scores, the high school ofﬁ cials' written recommendation, information about the student's activities and leadership, and the ﬁnalist's own essay." "You ﬁll out the paperwork once you become a semiﬁ nalist so I was pretty conﬁdent at that point," Sullivan said. "I think it's just to weed out the type of
kids who test well on the PSATs and have good skills in math but might not be so motivated in school. I felt my transcript would support me well. I wasn't too worried at that point. "I was a little surprised because you know you're in the 99th percentile but you don't know where in the 99 percentile you are," he continued. "I really had no idea if there were a lot of kids ahead of me or behind me. It was interesting to see where it happened." Sullivan got a recommendation from a guidance counselor and Kennett High principal Neal Moylan. "Henney Sullivan is an outstanding young man who is going far in this world," Moylan said. "He's done a great deal for the students at Kennett (as student body president) and we're extremely proud of him and can't wait to see how he progresses in the future." Kennett had a national semiﬁ nalist last year in Graham Rioux. Sullivan hopes to decide his college path over school vacation later this month. "I've narrowed it down to two options but I'm not sure which one I'm heading to," he said. "I got into seven schools, but Princeton and Harvard are my ﬁ nal two. Over April vacation I'll head down to Harvard for the ﬁ rst part of the week and then down to Princeton for the second half. By then I hope I'll have it ﬁgured out." The three-sport athlete (soccer, cross-country skiing and baseball) also was accepted at Dartmouth, Cornell, Wesleyan, Bowdoin and Boston College and wait-listed at Brown. "Princeton and Harvard were my top two choices so I wasn't too disappointed," he said, smiling. "Last summer I did a program at Harvard Summer School when I took two college courses where I met a few people (and also got eight college credits)." Sullivan knows what he wants to study. "I'd like to major in math, not really on the engineering side but on the logical, analytical side but also take several classes in political science, economics, history and some philosophy," he said. Sullivan has already taken every math offering at Kennett High. see next page

"I like to learn," he said with a grin. "There's a bunch of interesting stuff out there." On May 4, Sullivan and the school will be notiﬁ ed of the winners. He received a plaque in recognition as a semiﬁnalist. Moylan is optimistic about Sullivan's chances. "We're crossing our ﬁ ngers and holding our breath," he said. "Tough, tough competition among the nation merit ﬁ nalists, but we're remaining optimistic and positive." Sullivan says his senior year has gone well. "It's been pretty good," he said. "It hasn't been very challenging. I guess after a junior year where I had a pretty full schedule and some real interesting classes this summer at Harvard, I guess I had higher hopes maybe for Kennett. Classes just weren't that difﬁcult, there wasn't that much to offer.
TRANSIT from page one
"The numbers have doubled monthly as we go along," said LaLiberte on Wednesday. LaLiberte said he "feels good" about the growth. The numbers show there is a need for transportation in Carroll County, he said. Service areas are broken down into three zones: The ﬁ rst is Conway, Madison, North Conway and Albany. The second zone is Tamworth, Sandwich and Moultonborough. The third zone is Ossipee, Wolfeboro and Tuftonboro. Riders who travel within a zone can stay on the same bus. A trip from Conway to Madison would cost $6. So far, the northern zone has been the busiest, said LaLiberte. All types of people have been using the service for many purposes, said LaLiberte. There have been seniors, children and working-age adults. Although seniors and the disabled are considered priority riders, people aren't just using the service for medical appointments. Many take the buses to grocery stores. Other trips have been taken to the county courthouse in Ossipee. The Blue Loon has also helped parents get their children to and from half-day kindergarten programs. Some riders use the Blue Loon three or four times per day. "People are using it for their daily needs," said LaLiberte. That seems to be the case. Conway Wal-Mart assistant manager John Paiva said employees at the front end of the store and the pharmacy have become familiar with the Blue Loon buses. They have noticed that at times the buses bring in nearly a dozen shoppers. "Anything that adds to our customer ﬂow is a good thing," he said. Christine MacDonald, a social worker with White Mountain Community Health Center, in Conway, said from her ofﬁce she's seen people coming and going on the Blue Loon. "It's working," said MacDonald. Recent spikes in gas prices have not impacted the Blue Loon's operation, but LaLiberte believes it has led more people to use the bus rather
I've kind of run out of courses to take in some areas. I took Stats last year, AP Stats, so I couldn't take it this year. There were several situations like that for me where there wasn't one more step to take. "It's given me more time to devote myself towards student council and to my skiing," Sullivan continued. "It's given me time to appreciate me things." One of the ﬁ rst items under Sullivan's administration was to seek permission for students to wear sweatpants in school. He and colleagues successfully went before the school board to bring that change to fruition. Asked what was bigger, the sweatpants for being a national merit scholar ﬁ nalist, Sullivan smiled. "For the school, people are happy about sweatpants," he said. "For me personally I'm pretty happy about the National Merit Scholarship ﬁ nalist, it's pretty exciting."
than driving their own cars. The Blue Loon will be offering more services once four more buses arrive. LaLiberte does not have a timetable for when that will happen. When it does, the Blue Loon will operate public transit bus routes that run from Wolfeboro to West Ossipee and West Ossipee to North Conway. A commuter route will run trips daily between West Ossipee and Laconia. Scott McKinnon, CEO/president of Memorial Hospital, said Blue Loon ofﬁ cials asked if the hospital could be a destination/pick-up location. But so far nothing has been set. McKinnon said the hospital would love to help when the Blue Loon is ready. Further, there will be a long-distance medical service that will use volunteer drivers to bring people to appointments to places like Portland, Maine and Portsmouth. The Blue Loon is the nickname for Carroll County Transit Project which is a stimulus-funded project of Tri-County Community Action Program. Originally, the entire transit system was supposed to begin last summer. But the start date was bumped to September, and then November. The reason for the delays was the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the federal stimulus) created such a big demand for buses nationwide that manufacturers couldn't keep up. The Blue Loon’s eight-bus fleet was purchased with ARRA money. Fast Taxi owner Katy Robbart said the Blue Loon hasn't hurt her business, which is doing very well. In fact, she will even refer people to the Blue Loon on occasion — for example if someone can't afford cab fare. Fast Taxi ﬁ lls a niche by providing personalized service, which may include helping a rider get over a snow bank or bring in groceries, she said LaLiberte said he'd make reciprocal efforts to help Robbart's business. Adults and teens can schedule a ride on the Blue Loon by calling 1-866-752-6890. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

CONFERENCE from page one
ness and government policy thought leaders from around the world are expected to speak — including former United Kingdom Prime Minister Gordon Brown, former Federal Reserve chair Paul Volcker, London School of Economics visiting professor and author Adair Turner, Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz of Columbia University, and Harold James, professor of history and international affairs at Princeton University. The hotel from July 1 to July 22, 1944 was the site of the conference that established a renewed global economic architecture as World War II drew to a close. That conference established the World Bank and chose the American dollar as the backbone of international exchange. The website outlines the focus of this weekend's conference: “Today, as the aftershocks of our own global ﬁ nance crisis continue to reverberate, we face our own challenge of reconstruction. The 1944 conference was, famously, largely an Anglo-American affair, whereas today's reconstruction must engage the larger European Union, as well as the emerging economies of Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia. In the years since the 1944 conference, the globalization of production, trade and especially ﬁ nance has transformed our economy, but has not yet transformed our system of regulation or our tools of policy intervention. Indeed, our very habits of thought and speech lag behind the realities that we desperately need to think and speak about. “This conference reﬂ ects INET's dedication to inspiring and provoking new economic thinking. We have no doubt that the conference will produce a lot of high-quality, breakthrough thinking, and true to our mission, we will open this thinking up for everybody to engage and experience.” Soros is chair of Soros Fund Management LLC and the founder of the Open Society Institute. He was born in Budapest in 1930. He survived the Nazi occupation and ﬂ ed communist Hungary in 1947 for England, where he graduated from the London School of Economics. He then settled in the United States,
where he accumulated a large fortune through an international investment fund he founded and managed. Soros has been active as a philanthropist since 1979, when he began providing funds to help black students attend Cape Town University in apartheid South Africa. He has established a network of philanthropic organizations active in more than 50 countries around the world. These organizations are dedicated to promoting the values of democracy and an open society. The foundation network spends about $450 million annually. Soros is the author of 11 books, including most recently, “The Soros Lectures at the Central European University.” His articles and essays on politics, society, and economics regularly appear in major newspapers and magazines around the world. According to Wikipedia, he became known as “the Man Who Broke the Bank of England” after he made a reported $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crises. Soros correctly anticipated that the British government would have to devalue the pound sterling. In the United States, he is known according to Wikipedia for donating large sums of money in an effort to defeat President George W. Bush's bid for re-election in 2004. Wikipedia also says that in 2003, Volcker wrote in the foreword of Soros' book, “The Alchemy of Finance,” “George Soros has made his mark as an enormously successful speculator, wise enough to largely withdraw when still way ahead of the game. The bulk of his enormous winnings is now devoted to encouraging transitional and emerging nations to become open societies,’ open not only in the sense of freedom of commerce but — more important — tolerant of new ideas and different modes of thinking and behavior.” The conservative counterpoint to Wikipedia, Conservapedia.com, charges that “Soros's answer to America's problems involve more regulation and more government intervention in the marketplace.” It says that Soros was a major backer of then Sen. Barack Obama's bid for the presidency in 2008 and continues to have close ties to the administration.

‘Le Comte Ory’ live in HD at Leura Hill Eastman FRYEBURG, Maine — The Metropolitan Opera will present its firstever performances of Rossini’s final comic opera, “Le Comte Ory,” in a production by Bartlett Sher.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — Lady Luck may be featured in one of “Guys and Doll’s” most famous songs, but it was Mother Nature who decided to take an active role in keeping the cast and crew of Arts in Motion and Kennett High School’s production of the iconic musical on their toes. “We’ve had some struggles with the amount of snow that we’ve had because that’s canceled a lot of our rehearsals, so we had to do overtime in this last week, but it is going well,” Taylor Hill said. The canceled rehearsals have lead to a busy ﬁ nal week with rehearsals running seven or nine hours to be ready for the opening tonight at the Kennett High School Loynd Auditorium in North Conway. The production, directed by Glenn Noble, music directed by Mary Bastoni-Rebmann and choreographed by Holly Fougere, will have additional performances April 9, 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. and April 10 and 17 at 1 p.m. “It has been tiring, but they have pulled together as a team,” Noble said. “A high school production is always challenging because they are always involved in so much.” “Guys and Dolls,” by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, ﬁ rst opened on Broadway in 1951 and went onto inspire the 1955 ﬁ lm starring Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando as well as numerous revivals on Broadway and the West End. For the cast though it was like a brand new show. “This was a show I had heard about,” Hill said. “I heard some of the music. I had heard some things about it, but I hadn’t gone into it with a preconceived notion about what it was or what came

with it. I was kind of like, ‘OK, a new show, let’s tackle this’ and I think that’s what we’ve all kind of done.” Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, the show introduces us to Sarah Brown (Hill), the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, (Philip Mathieu) the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on
a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, (Hanna Paven) the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, (Kevin Ahearn) her devoted ﬁ ancé, desperate as always to ﬁ nd a spot for his infamous ﬂoating crap game. see next page
Arts association announces new needle felting workshop CONWAY — Just in time for Easter, the Mount Washington Valley Arts Association is present this April 16 needle felting workshop. Learn needle-felting from the very basic decoration of a styrofoam egg or ball to a 100 percent wool spring lamb with curly locks. Over the course of the day, students will make a decorated egg or ball, a spring chick, a felted rose or pansy pin, a duck or bunny and a lamb. Instructions for all the projects will be included in the kit. Students may bring a bagged
lunch or purchase one nearby. The materials kit includes all the wool and embellishments necessary to complete the projects during class time and/or materials and instructions to complete the projects at home. In addition to the wool, the kit includes a basic needle-felting kit with a foam cushion and two needles which will allow the student to continue to create new projects at home. Additional tools, books and supplies may be purchased from the instructor at the end of the class. Instructor Diane Cook John-
son, owner of Soft Touch Farm, and leader of Club Sandwich 4-H in Center Sandwich. She has been needle-felting and teaching the craft since the spring of 2005. She is a juried ﬁ ber artist with the Mount Washington Valley Arts Association. The cost is $65 for member and $75 for non-members and includes a $20 materials fee. For more information call the Mount Washington Valley Visual Arts Center at 356-2787 or download our registration form at mwvarts.org.

Lovin’ the spring bumps, bummin’ about the Red Sox BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
It's spring, judging by the calendar, any way, and by the fact that the BoSox are back on the tube — still winless as of this writing, mind you, at 0-6, but back on TV at any rate. Usually, seeing the Sox bac on TV would be a thrill for their legions of fans at Delaney's, Horsefeathers, Matty B's and all other locales with great sports bars, but all it's doing this year is give everyone migraine headaches. It's their second worst start in franchise history. And to think those Damn Yankees are facing them at Fenway starting today! Regardless of the challenged but supposedly greatly talented Sox (we've yet to see it), spirits among skiers are swinging high around here, given the superb conditions this cold season. Bear Notch Ski Touring and Snowshoe Center, for example, is the last cross country skiing center in New Hampshire still open. (Others could be, but they ran out of skiers — not snow!). Doug Garland says Bear Notch will ofﬁ cially call it a season after Sunday, April 10, but the snow ought to last beyond that date. “We're still grooming,” said Doug when the sun ﬁ nally came out again Thursday after a two-day stint of spring slop, “and we ought to have some really great skiing this week-

The young cast made a conscious effort to avoid much of the pre-existing material out there and to create their own characterizations. “I have my perception of what the character should be like, so I try to stick to that even if I see someone else do it differently. I kind of stick to my own,” Paven said. Mathieu agrees and has avoided seeing the ﬁ lm so as not to have it alter his performance. “Usually if I watch the ﬁ lm I will ﬁnd myself imitating who plays it and then that’s not me so it doesn’t come out well on stage,” Mathieu said. The show was also a chance for the actors to try new roles and, in Hill’s case, an opportunity to play against her usual type. “It was a completely different role from things I’ve done in the past,” Hill said. “Sarah is really conservative. I’m not really used to playing a conservative role, so I guess that was challenge in itself.” For Ahearn the challenge came in
end. People can still come out and ski after that if they would like, but we're closing Sunday.” The downhill side of life also is cruising along — and we're not just talking about the great conditions up in Tuckerman Ravine, the usual spring mecca. Projected closing dates are April 10 for Sunapee and Waterville Valley, and April 17 for Bretton Woods, Cannon and Loon. Wildcat, meanwhile, always a king of spring skiing, is open daily through April 19, and then will be open Fridays through Sundays beginning April 22, says general manager Tom Caughey. “After that we're shooting for possibly weekends into May, conditions permitting. We're waiting for spring,” said Tom this week. Wildcat had 46 of 50 trails as of Thursday. Meanwhile, Bretton Woods has 87 of 102. Cannon has — would you believe? — a whopping 70 of 72. Sunday River has a Totally Tubular Hot Tub Party with swimsuit see VALLEY VOICE page 22
tackling the dialogue that comes with the Nathan Detroit character “I’ve always played kind of like a goofy character in some way,” Ahearn said. “This one isn’t as goofy, but it still is, but the language that Nathan uses compared to other characters I’ve used has been really hard to comprehend and memorize the lines for just because he speaks a lot different than past characters I’ve played.” The show also stars Zack Whitley, Kodi Barrows, Gabe Lee, Shai-ann Fellows and 30 other Kennett High School students. This year’s show also includes guest appearances from non-Kennett students including Chris Madura, Keith Force and Matt Stoker. All tickets are $10 and can be purchased at artsinmotiontheater.com or at the door.

Also in Maine, the revitalized Saddleback is extending its season and is operating weekends into May. Sugarloaf's 23rd annual Bud Light Reggae Fest returns, April 14 through 17. In Vermont, 13 resorts are still operating. Jay Peak and Killington are shooting for May 1. All of this comes as good news to skiers and riders — and probably not to gardners. ••• TUCK'S AND THE INFERNO: Meanwhile, there's plenty of snow in Tuckerman Ravine, where Friends of Tuckerman Ravine will present its Tuckerman Inferno Pentathon April 16. Also on April 16, Friends of Tuckerman is presenting the Wildcat Wildﬁre pentathlon. There are still slots open in the Wildﬁre.

It's always one of the best events of the year. ••• SKI WRITERS: Kudos to Kathy Bennett of Cranmore, Thom Perkins of the Jackson Ski Touring Foundation, and the ﬁ ne staff of the Wentworth Resort for hosting last weekend's annual meeting of the Eastern Ski Writers Association. Writers were given a ride down Cranmore's Mountain Coaster Friday night by Kthy and general manager Ben Wilcox. The following day, Jackson Ski Touring was ofﬁ cially closed for the season, but there was still plenty of snow, so Thom took a group of us up on the specially-groomed and well-covered Hall Trail. Some of the group members were beginners, but four of us weren't, so the four of us had a blast double-poling on our skate skis down the trail after climbing the long way up Saturday morning. Downhillers, meanwhile, attended Wildcat's Spring Ditch splash shenanigans Saturday.

At Saturday night's dinner, Thom was given his North American Snowsports Journalists Association's Lifetime Achievement Award and Marty Basch was recognized for winning a Hirsch award for ski columns. Among the honorees in attendance was the grand dame of ski writers, local resident Jacqui Jones. When Jacqui worked at Wildcat Mountain, she started the organization, which serves as a professional group for ski writers. After dinner, Kathy and Thom teamed up as Bennett and Perkins to perform on guitar in the lounge, always a treat. On Sunday, local writerNick Howe gave a talk, after which many writers headed to Wildcat while others — like us — went to Bretton Woods.

M&D hosts special events centered around upcoming show CONWAY — M&D Productions has created a total of five separate events all centered around the opening of their second main stage show, “5 Women Wearing The Same Dress” which will open on April 14. “We created a collection of memorable events that all tie together in the spirit of collaboration and in the process, created a unique marketing situation,” Mark DeLancey said. “We knew that spring is prom season and that weddings are also numerous this time of year. So we also decided to bring in other community-minded business to add their touch to these other events.” The collaboration of events had its kick off with “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” with two for one tapas at Wine Thyme. At the kick off, the owners of Fields of Ambrosia, My Girlfriends Bridal Boutique and the Wine Thyme asked M&D Productions to be their honored beneficiary. M&D Productions provided the audience the opportunity to meet the cast of “5 Women Wearing the Same Dress.” The second event tied to this show is an actual wedding on the stage of this production prior to its opening. Ryan Orlando (a long time supporter of M&D) and his soon to be bride Tracy Ludwig (an actress from our 2010 season) will tie the knot in this unique setting. “Both Tracy and Ryan facebooked me a while ago and asked me for a favor,” Ken Martin said. “Mark and I said we would be honored to host your glorious event.” On April 12 there will be a “Wedding Cake War” where contestants will battle for the first ever title of “Best Cake King or Queen.” The winner receives $100 in cash plus four tickets to any M&D Production in 2011. There is still room to enter this event by calling DeLancey at

Movie Review: ‘Source Code’ Homestead Restaurant Reel Reviews ––––– THE
“Source Code” is about a military man (Jake Gyllenhaal) who, through the marvels of modern technology, is sent into the last eight minutes of another man's life. This other man is on a train that is bombed, and it is up to Gyllenhaal to ﬁ nd the bomber in hopes of preventing a larger scale attack. In description “Source Code” sounds like a slam-bang action thriller, and, in the hands of someone like Michael “Transformers” Bay, it may have been, but director Duncan Jones plays it on an effectively small scale. This is Jones' second feature following 2009's “Moon,” a ﬁ lm about an astronaut on a threeyear mission on the moon who makes a bizarre discovery that alters his reality. Both “Moon” and “Source Code” are essentially one-set ﬁ lms with a lunar base and train, respectively. The compact settings make the ﬁ lms more intimate, personal and rich with the detail of their spaces. “Moon” was made for $5 million, a small budget for a sci-ﬁ ﬁ lm of that nature. It worked as a calling card for Jones and landed him the bigger-budgeted “Source Code.” There is a risk when Hollywood attempts to co-op a voice from the so-called indie movie scene. Some ﬁ lmmakers struggle with the increase in budget size, playing within a system and keeping a voice that is true to them. This is not the case for Jones, who has made an intelligent, thoughtful ﬁ lm that is challenging, but also accessible to a mainstream audience. It hits all the marks that you'd like a ﬁ lm like this to hit: It has laughs, romance, suspense and even some unexpected tears.
The script is by Ben Ripley, whose only other major credits are the direct-to-DVD sequels “Species III” and “Species: Awakening.” That's not exacting high pedigree, but sometimes you need to take what you can get before doing something of more substance. The script here is smart, witty and well developed with a rather unexpected plot twist. There is an ongoing theme in which Gyllenhaal is looking to get in touch with his father that has a powerful emotional payoff.
There is a risk when Hollywood attempts to co-op a voice from the so-called indie movie scene. Some ﬁlmmakers struggle with the increase in budget size, playing within a system and keeping a voice that is true to them. Essentially, “Source Code” plays like a skipping record repeating the same eight minutes over and over again, but in this case the song slightly changes each time as Gyllenhaal learns more about his surroundings. Much like Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day,” who was stuck in a similar time loop, Gyllenhaal gets better each time he lives those eight minutes until he gets them perfect. Sitting across from Gyllenhaal every time he returns to the train is a sweet, intelligent, beautiful woman (Michelle Monaghan). Gyllenhaal slowly falls for her
while trying to complete his mission. He wants to save her, but is told by those running the program (Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright) that it doesn't work that way as what he's seeing isn't really the past, but a shadow of the past. That doesn't stop Gyllenhaal from ﬁ ghting to prove them wrong. Gyllenhaal makes for a charming leading man and does well with smart material. He brings an earnestness and sense of humor to his character that makes him likable and easy to root for. He has a nice chemistry with Monaghan, who ﬁ nds interesting ways to keep her character fresh despite the repetition. Farmiga, as the captain running the program, gives a subtle performance. Though it is never stated in the dialogue, you see her internal struggle when the sleazy inventor of the source code technology (Wright) wants to keep exploiting and pushing Gyllenhaal. It is an effective performance driven by quiet facial expressions and body language. This is a thriller with a brain and a heart. Moviegoers who are willing to go with the highconcept premise and who want a ﬁlm with more substance than the average action ﬁ lm are not going to be disappointed. This is a solidly entertaining ﬁ lm that is likely to cause some healthy debate after the credits roll.

Tin Mountain hosts Eco-Forum on brook trout project April 14 ALBANY — Tin Mountain’s Dick Fortin will highlight ongoing ﬁsheries research and what is yet to be done on Tin Mountain’s brook trout habitat restoration project. What streams have been treated? What is involved in a treatment and what streams will be next? Fortin will address all these questions and more on at the Eco-Forum Thursday, April 14, from 12 to 1 p.m. at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany. Fortin is a naturalist and forester. He is an active member of the Eaton Conservation Commission and has worked diligently over the years on numerous land conservation
projects that have had a positive inﬂ uence on the greater Mount Washington Valley. In addition, Fortin was a teacher naturalist at Tin Mountain for many years and has taught numerous natural science classes at Granite State College. He is the project manager for the brook trout restoration project. In his presentation, Fortin will provide an overview of state efforts to restore brook trout habitat in headwater streams. He will focus on the seven streams in the valley that were treated this past summer, highlighting work done and scheduled maintenance for this coming ﬁ eld season. He also will address the
eight additional streams that will be part of this summer’s work. Participants are invited to stick around after the talk to join Fortin and the staff of Tin Mountain for a guided hike out to one of the restored streams on the Rockwell Sanctuary. The Eco-Forum lunchtime lecture series is sponsored by The Flatbread Company of North Conway and the Rock House Mountain Baker. Eco-Forums are free and open to the public and are presented at noon on the second Thursday of each month at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany.

Tamworth Town Column Ann McGarity firstname.lastname@example.org
Men’s fellowship breakfast Saturday The community is deeply saddened by the death of beloved resident Mark Staples, 54, of Tamworth on March 27. The youngest of nine children, Mark grew up on Turkey Street and attended local schools. He was a master craftsman and brick layer and loved the sport of ﬂy-ﬁ shing. Services will be Saturday, April 9, at 11 a.m. at the Tamworth Congregational Church on Main Street in Tamworth village. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations may be made in Mark’s memory to the Remick Museum and Farm, 58, Cleveland Hill Road, Tamworth, NH, 03886 to supply loaner ﬁ shing poles to the museum’s young visitors who might otherwise be unable to participate in the sport of ﬁshing. Condolences to all of Mark’s family and many friends. All school volunteers and substitute teachers were required to attend a short course on bullying and its effects on students and what to do about it. The session I attended last week was expertly led by Principal Troon. A PowerPoint presentation indicated the severe and lasting consequences that bullying can have, especially when a child feels ignored and disempowered. The main duty that volunteers have in this regard is to watch for signs , and listen to the children they interact with and report anything that indicates bullying might be taking place to the guidance counselor, or teachers. The school is taking the initiative of emphasizing the positive role of civility and kindness and consideration for others. The presentation concluded with a heart wrenching, hard to watch display of photographs of children who had committed suicide as a result of bullying. News from John and Peggy De Long's Farm Stand at 61 Chocorua Road in Tamworth village. It has reopened with fresh eggs, jams and jellies, ground lamb, ﬂ eece and yarn. Call 323-8355 if you wish to order lamb. Altrusa is an international women’s service organization with a Carroll County chapter. Altrusa stands for Amity, Loyalty, Talent, Reciprocity, Unity Service, Achievement. It is an organization of volunteers sharing talents to provide service to others , achieving as a group what cannot be done alone. This diverse group of women works with local organizations and volunteer groups on projects that beneﬁ t those in need, Volunteer projects include backpacks for foster children, a see TAMWORTH page 28

Claire Lynch Band comes to Stone Mountain tonight BROWNFIELD, Maine — The Claire Lynch Band will be at Stone Mountain Arts Center in Brownﬁeld, Maine at 8 p.m. By any measure, The Claire Lynch Band is high on the bluegrass world’s A-List, with musicians whose accolades include International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Female Vocalist of the Year and two Grammy nominations for Best Bluegrass Album (Lynch); Canadian Open Mandolin Championship and Florida State Championship on both ﬁ ddle and mandolin (Thomas); the MerleFest Doc Watson Guitar Champion (Wingate); and two IBMA Bass Player of the Year awards (Schatz). Lynch’s musical direction dates back to the days of the Front Porch String Band, resulting in a seasoned sound that is simultaneously unpretentious and richly textured. It’s a down-home, front porch sensibility—until you realize that it’s a rare front porch, indeed, that has ever hosted musicians of this caliber. Tickets are $20 plus a $4 handling fee for concert.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll make a meaningful, powerful connection when you communicate face to face. Send your intention through your eyes right into the eyes and heart of the one you want to inﬂuence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will feel pulled toward communitybuilding deeds. You’ll do your best work in a diverse group. Ask someone from another department, generation or culture to join you in a service project. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). You are still puzzled over an event in your family history. Did it really happen as others said it did, or is the memory tainted by the hopes and beliefs of those who remember it? Investigate further. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Knowledge that has been handed down cannot be veriﬁ ed as of yet. Still, you feel the truth in your bones. Act on what you know. You’ll bond with others who share your beliefs. PISCES (Feb. 19 -March 20). Who is better qualiﬁ ed than you to enhance your reputation? You’ll ﬁ nd a not so obvious way to get the story started about who you are and what you’ve accomplished. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 8). Your intuitive inklings, especially about people, will be correct. This month presents the opportunity to bet on a hunch and win. May brings change and travel. In June, a person in need brings out divine levels of compassion in you. There’s a professional gain in July that allows you to assist your family. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 12, 33 and 30.
HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). Someone will copy what you do. This should be ﬂ attering to you -- imitation is the most sincere kind of compliment. Still, it is important that you take control of what is yours, especially in regard to intellectual property. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want a person to want you. You can’t force this to happen, but you will make it happen through the art of persuasion. It starts with believing in yourself and feeling whole and complete on your own. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Contribute the best of your talent, and another person will do the same. You will fast become partners, and an easy collaboration ensues. Both parties will feel heard, understood and valued. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You keep your promises to people. This comes easily to you because it’s the right thing to do. Because others know what they can consistently expect from you, they keep coming back. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will get what you desire for one reason only: someone else wants to help you and sees great reward in doing so. Your enthusiasm makes it a pleasure for others to assist you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There’s a right way to do things and a wrong way. Playing by the rules, you’ll rise through the professional or social ranks quickly enough. Therefore, don’t even bother looking for shortcuts today. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Find a quiet place where you can concentrate. You will take your work and studies to a new level in this environment. As an added bonus, a relationship improves because of what you learn today.

Today is Friday, April 8, the 98th day of 2011. There are 267 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 8, 1911, an explosion at the Banner Coal Mine in Littleton, Ala., claimed the lives of 128 men, most of them convicts loaned out from prisons. On this date: In 1913, the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, providing for direct popular election of United States senators (as opposed to appointment by state legislatures), was ratified.

In 1974, Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves hit his 715th career home run in a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, breaking Babe Ruth’s record. In 1994, Kurt Cobain, singer and guitarist for the grunge band Nirvana, was found dead in Seattle from an apparently selfinflicted gunshot wound; he was 27. One year ago: President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed the New START treaty in Prague. Today’s Birthdays: Former first lady Betty Ford is 93. Comedian Shecky Greene is 85.

Help Wanted by Abigail Van Buren
MOTHER SPILLS SON’S SECRET AND IS RENOUNCED IN RETURN
DEAR ABBY: My son has refused to speak to me ever again because his girlfriend asked me if he had another child from a previous relationship. I didn’t think it was right to lie to her, so I told her the truth about his daughter. My son called me yesterday and told me I was “dead to him” and he never wants to see me again. I feel so guilty having betrayed him. I’m not sure how to make amends with my son. Abby, can you help me? -- SAD MOM IN OHIO DEAR MOM: Your son may have preferred his girlfriend be kept in the dark about his daughter, but if the girlfriend didn’t have some strong suspicions, she would not have raised the subject with you. Frankly, I admire you for telling the truth and not going along with your son’s deception. I’m not sure how you should “make amends” with your son. He is the one who should be making amends with you. His lack of character is lamentable. DEAR ABBY: My wife has been out of work for four months. Last week she applied for a job at a loan ofﬁ ce. During the interview, she learned it was a payday loan operation, and she would be expected to get people to sign up for loans they could not afford. This goes against our principles. We have seen family members caught in payday loan schemes that buried them in debt, and we ﬁ nd the whole industry to be immoral and abhorrent. My wife is currently receiving unemployment compensation. One of the rules of unemployment is, if a company offers you work, you must accept it. She said if she knew what the position entailed, she would not have applied. Now she is terriﬁed she may be offered a position in a business she ﬁ nds repugnant, but she may not be able to decline the offer. What
can she do? Please answer fast! -- STUCK FOR AN ANSWER IN KANSAS CITY DEAR STUCK FOR AN ANSWER: Your wife should contact the payday loan company and tell them she is not interested in the position before she gets an offer. That way, she won’t be breaking any rules, and the company can hire a willing applicant. DEAR ABBY: I have an issue regarding my 18-year-old son, “Jake.” His father and I divorced several years ago -- amicably for the most part. Since then, and even before, Jake has had emotional problems. My son makes up stories about himself. On one of his online social network sites he has been talking about a vehicle he doesn’t own. He even invited a friend to go four-wheeling with him in his nonexistent vehicle. This is only one of many lies Jake has told. When I call him on it, he admits it but says it’s “no big deal.” Abby, people believe what my son is telling them. What is going on, and what can I do? -- CARING PARENT, LITTLETON, COLO. DEAR CARING PARENT: Your son may lie in order to impress others, or be so emotionally troubled that he can’t tell the difference between what he fantasizes and what is real. I assume that because Jake has had emotional difﬁ culties for some time that he has been under the care of a therapist. If so, contact the therapist and explain what’s going on. If Jake doesn’t have a therapist, ﬁ nd one. Perhaps an intervention will help Jake. If the lying persists, your son will become increasingly isolated as it gets out that no one can believe a word he says.
