MT. WASHINGTON VALLEY’S DAILY NEWSPAPER
Towns must pay for access to public access TV channel
BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — There is a shakeup happening in local community access television, and it could mean big changes in what Mount Washington Valley viewers see when they switch on their TVs. Cable providers are required to provide towns with a local public access channel, funded by a fee paid by cable subscribers. For years Channel 3 has filled that role, airing local programming from Conway, Madison, Fryeburg and other towns. But changes in the agreement between the town of Conway see TV page 8

CONWAY — Krista Dittmeyer’s disappearance and murder investigation put a strain on the police department, just weeks after voters turned down a request for two more officers, but even if voters had voted for the officers it wouldn’t have made a difference. see POLICE page 10

Holdouts wait out flood at bar EAGLE LAKE, Miss. (NY Times) — If you need to get ahold of somebody here, this is how. Go to the end of town and take a right. Then take another right. There on the lakefront sits a low metal building, as impressive as a storage shed. This is Strick’s, as the hand-drawn sign above the front door will tell you. It is the only business still open in Eagle Lake. And starting at 2 o’clock every afternoon and running into the evening, every person in town can be found here. All 15 of them. While the population of Eagle Lake normally numbers in the hundreds, these few, these happy few, are all that remain. They are the holdouts after a townwide exodus, prompted by concerns over the fat and ferocious Mississippi River, which runs just on the other side of the lake. Every night they sit in this mostly empty bar, throwing back some beers and eating a communal dinner of hamburgers or crawfish or whatever was brought in by the last person to visit a grocery store. They tell stories, watch television and talk about any number of things, but usually about the latest measurements of the river, the state of the levees on which they depend for survival and their disappointment in the less hardy souls who took off at the first hint of danger.
I don’t want to be that guy mumbling into his drink at a bar.” —Bill Murray

I.M.F. case puts focus on special victims squad
(NY Times) — In some ways, last weekend was not especially remarkable for the New York Police Department’s Special Victims Squad. About 30 new cases came in, typical for the citywide unit of 190 specially trained investigators and supervisors. But of those cases — among the 6,000 sexbased cases that the squad handles each year — none carried the notoriety of the one that accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, of sexually attacking a
housekeeper at a Manhattan hotel. For some, the arrest of Strauss-Kahn, who was taken into custody aboard an Air France jet at Kennedy International Airport, drew comparisons to television shows like “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” The real-life detectives of the Special Victims Squad do not solve their cases in the span of an hourlong television show; their work is done more deliberately. “The people who work in this field are dedicated to it, but I don’t think any one of
U.S. imposes sanctions on Syrian leader and six aides WASHINGTON (NY Times) — President Obama imposed sanctions on Syria’s leader, President Bashar al-Assad, and six other senior Syrian officials on Wednesday, ratcheting up American pressure in the wake of a bloody crackdown on political protests in the country. Mr. Obama’s executive order — along with additional sanctions imposed by the Treasury Department against Syrian and Iranian intelligence services and commanders — reflected the grow-
ing American frustration that Mr. Assad’s government was not heeding international condemnation and seeking a peaceful resolution to the popular uprising in the country. Until now, Mr. Obama had adopted a much more measured and cautious approach than he did in Libya in hopes, officials said, that Mr. Assad would respond to international pressure. The administration clearly concluded that approach was not working. Though the move may prove

them would call it glamorous,” said Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman. Some of their cases are well-known: the so-called preppie murder, the Central Park jogger rape, the rape and murder of Imette St. Guillen by a SoHo bar bouncer. Others are not nearly as celebrated; last weekend, in the midst of the Strauss-Kahn case, the city’s special victims detectives swung around the five boroughs, absorbing the accounts of victims of all ages.
Gates: ‘Somebody’ in Pakistan knew about Osama bin Laden WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said on Wednesday that while he surmised that “somebody” inside Pakistan was aware that Osama bin Laden was hiding in a compound in the Pakistani garrison town of Abbottabad, there was no evidence so far that anyone in the country’s senior leadership was in on the secret. “My supposition is, somebody knew,” Mr. Gates said at a Pentagon news conference with Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Beyond that, he said, the Obama administration, which has repeatedly said that Bin Laden seemed to have a “support network” in hiding, had little information. “We don’t know whether it was retired people, whether it was low level — pure supposition on our part,” Mr. Gates said. “It’s hard to go to them with an accusation when we have no proof that anybody knew.”

BY PAUL FEELY THE UNION LEADER
James Foley, a New Hampshire native and Boston-based journalist held captive by the Libyan government for more than a month, was among four journalists released today and taken to a hotel in Tripoli. Broadcast reports state Foley, a Rochester native working for GlobalPost, along with Clare Morgana Gillis, a freelance journalist for The Atlantic and USA Today, Spanish photographer Manu Brabo, and British journalist Nigel Chandler are all currently at the Rixos Hotel, a housing area for foreign journalists assigned to Tripoli, one day after the Libyan government announced it was giving them a one-year suspended sentence on charges of illegally entering the country. Broadcast news organizations are reporting that Libyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim told the
four journalists they were welcome to stay in Libya, but stated they would be taken to the Tunisian border to leave the country if they so desired. Foley was held for more than six weeks by the Libyan government. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) expressed relief that Foley was freed. “I am tremendously relieved and overjoyed to hear that James Foley has been released from his imprisonment in Libya and can return home to reunite with his family and friends,” Shaheen said in a prepared statement. “Since James went missing in April, there has been an outpouring of support for him throughout the world. As a mother of three myself, I can only imagine the anxiety and pain his loved ones have endured. I am glad that James’ family, friends, colleagues, and classmates, all have something to celebrate today and we eagerly await word that he is on his way home.”

Mass. media reports Texas woman confessed to killing son BY JASON SCHREIBER AND CLYNTON NAMUO THE UNION LEADER
ALFRED, Maine — Authorities say they’re questioning a woman in connection with the case of a young unidentified boy whose body was found alongside a dirt road in South Berwick on Saturday. The woman was reportedly taken into protective custody at a rest stop along Interstate 495 in Chelmsford, Mass., Wednesday morning. Massachusetts State Police described the woman as a “person of interest” believed to be related to the Maine investigation, but WHDH-TV reported that it was told by several sources that the woman was from Irving, Texas, and is the boy’s mother. The woman is reportedly being questioned at the Massachusetts State Police barracks in Concord, Mass., where investigators from Maine State Police are also on hand.
A Toyota Tacoma similar to the one described by Maine State Police as the vehicle possibly seen in the area of where the boy was found Saturday also was reportedly taken from the rest stop by authorities. Maine State Police held a brief news conference earlier in the afternoon but offered little new information, saying they could no longer comment on the case and that further questions would be referred to the Maine Attorney General’s Office; the agency handles homicide investigations. Police have described the boy as 3-foot-8, weighing 45 pounds. Police said the boy was wearing a “Faded Glory” brand gray camouflage hooded sweatshirt, tan-colored khaki pants and a navy blue T-shirt with the word “Aviator” and a small plane emblazoned on front. He also had on “Lightning McQueen” black sneakers, from the movie Cars. He has blonde hair and blue eyes.

Brook Trout restoration efforts program at Tin Mountain today ALBANY — Join John Magee of New Hampshire Fish and Game at Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center on Thursday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m as he discusses current efforts to restore eastern brook trout habitat throughout the state. Magee has spent the past five years monitoring and restoring Nash Stream in northern New Hampshire, and this past summer, he began work on streams in the Mount Washington
Valley with Tin Mountain and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Magee has a bachelor’s in biology from St. Mary’s College of Maryland and a master’s in zoology from the University of Maine. He has worked on diverse aquatic topics ranging from water quality, animal physiology, fish ecology and migratory behavior, and more recently, on fish habitat restoration and protection at the New Hamp-
shire Fish and Game Department. Magee will present his research on brook trout habitat use and ecology at Nash Stream State Forest. Results indicate the boundaries of streams do not end at the edge of the water (in fact, they extend far into the forest), and healthy brook trout populations depend on healthy forests and the nutrients, leaves, and woody material they provide to the stream. Magee also will describe how this
information was used by the Tin Mountain Conservation Center, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, and NH Fish and Game Department to restore brook trout habitat in Chatham, Conway, and Tamworth.

Article misrepresents work of association To the editor: In light of a recent article about the cemeteries in the township of Conway, we would like to clarify the facts about the Conway Village Cemetery, which was in a major photo for the article. The Conway Village Cemetery was established in 1872, and was incorporated in the state of New Hampshire in 1970 as a non-profit association. According to town records, we are an entity of our own. Any person who has purchased a burial lot or the right of interment is a member of the association. We have an active board of directors that meet regularly, who are responsible for the sale of said rights, the care of the cemetery and the
careful management of the funds. The photo does show the beauty of the Conway Village Cemetery, however, the caption and the article misrepresents the actual responsibility of caring for the loved ones buried in this location. This has been done, through the years by the board of directors. We invite anyone interested to stop and enjoy the peacefulness of this country cemetery. Ken Williams, president Laraine Cormack, vice president Maureen Seavey, secretary Gloria Tibbetts, treasurer Bill Vose, director Elizabeth Hatch, director Roy Larson, director Brian Wiggin, director Conway Village Cemetery Association
Let’s poll reps on corporate welfare system To the editor: The United States Senate took a vote yesterday to end the outlandish subsidies to oil companies. The GOP voted, once again (with the exception of Senator Snow and Senator Collins) in lockstep and in homage to their financial benefactors, to continue the billions given to the largest and most profitable companies. Keep in mind that while oil sells at $100 a barrel, it only costs $11 to produce, oil company statistics. This brings back a suggestion I brought forward a while ago: Let’s only elect one GOP senator and one GOP representative, saving a ton of money in wages and a ton of money for their government-
subsidized health insurance. Since the Grand Old Party always votes en mass to their leaders directives, we only need one sitting on their side of the aisle, but give them their majority voting power so that they can continue to still block any real tax reforms or social progress. Better yet, let’s poll our locally elected reps and have them state, on the record, how they each feel about the corporate welfare system we have now. Oh, by the way, did you see that GE did not have to pay any income tax last year and that Warren Buffet stated his secretary pays more in federal income tax than he does? Joe Keller Fryeburg

I think the state should change driver’s license age to 13 years old To the editor : Would you want your 13 year old drive up next to you on the road? My name is Teana Stacey. I go to Conway Elementary School. I think the state should change the driver’s license age to 13 years old. I feel this way because if your 13, you are old enough to know where to go. You also wouldn’t need a ride home from a place your at. I think kids should get their license at a younger age. It might be a little scary driving at a younger age but there are good things about it too. For example, kids and adults would have more freedom. Kids could go places on their own and adults wouldn’t have to worry about picking their kids up! The kids could drive themselves home. The helpful kids could also run errands for their parents.
Kids could also have fun and get a job. A job will help them get parts as well as gas for their car. Driving at 13 might also be expensive. You have to buy your license, go to driver education and pay for insurance. You might be able to have a job to help pay for these things. It might be scary because you might be a little short. It also could be difficult to reach the pedals. This also could cause accidents. If kids got their license at age 13 they would have responsibly and would have more experience, too. Over all, kids would get more freedom by driving at a younger age. Wouldn’t you want to do something without your kid or picking them up? Please help me encourage the state to change the age to 13. Thank you for reading my letter. Teana Stacey Conway

See the whole meeting on governmentoversite.com To the editor: In response to Rep. Frank McCarthy’s letter in the May 12 edition, I guess I would ask him the same question that I asked Commissioner Kenny. “Why are you so angry about the state of county government?” Is it the two consecutive years of tax reductions? Is it the multimillion dollar surplus? Or is it that in spite of having to pay a $2 million bond payment this year our taxes didn’t go up a cent? I told him when he took office that he should take the example of Carroll County’s progress towards efficient well-run government down to Concord and use it to start changing things for the better, but instead we get another letter full of accusations and misinformation. If the readers of this paper want to know what really happened at the commissioners’ meeting and what was really said, all they need to do is go online to governmentoversite.com and they can see a film of the whole meeting. Rep. McCarthy was not at that meeting and I doubt that he watched it online. I took a public official to task, as any citizen should. The readers of this paper might remember some of the negative articles about me during my term in office. Being criticized is part of the job. Commissioner Kenny’s obsession with my appointment as assistant treasurer and chair of the non-profit Friends of Mountainview borders on paranoia. I lost the election, I didn’t lose my citizenship. As for Rep. McCarthy’s complaints about the union workers at the county and their contracts, it’s hard to know where to begin. He has obviously never negotiated a contract or he would know that you don’t always get everything you want, that’s why it’s called negotiations. But perhaps he should talk to the union stewards at the nursing home and ask them if they voted for me after the negotiations I put them through or better yet talk to the sheriff who wanted to hire a lawyer to sue me for negotiating a contract that he sees as too hard on his deputies. But all of that misses the point and I would expect that an old soldier like McCarthy would understand better than most. Generals don’t win the battle, the troops do. That multimillion dollar surplus was brought to you by the workers. Two million of the $2.5 million that was given back to the taxpayers this year was brought to you by the workers or Carroll County. And none of them are overpaid. I know because I looked at the pay levels and benefits of all of the county employees and compared them to private sector pay. Those nursing home employees that Rep. McCarthy and others like to disparage as overpaid union thugs out-perform their private counterparts and usually for less pay. As for his allegation that I was silent about the overtime issue that he brought up, well I guess I have to remind him that I was just an observer at that delegation meeting and was not allowed to say anything
unless asked by his chairman. As for the other two commissioners, I can only imagine that they might have had a problem with his logic. Prior to 2008 the nursing home did exactly what he suggests, bring in temp labor, and in 2008 that expense had gone up to $500,000. By changing the overtime policy and engaging the workforce, that expense is now budgeted at $350,000. I’ll do the math for him. That’s a $150,000 savings to the taxpayers. What is he mad about? The nursing home is not overstaffed. It operates 24/7. Employees get vacations and sometimes they get sick. Overtime is unavoidable. Will the county spend all of the overtime that is funded in the budget? They didn’t last year but you budget using assumptions and manage efficiently. And as far as the old nursing home is concerned, where did Rep. McCarthy come up with the “million dollars or more” figure? I won’t call it a fabrication but I have been to the one and only building committee meeting and seen the proposals for using the old building and a million dollars never came up. We pay close to $40,000 a year to rent office space in Conway and so far the conversation has centered around how to move that county function to the county complex and reduce costs. I know that neither Rep. McCarthy nor Commissioner Kenny came to any of the public deliberations on the new nursing home project so perhaps they should spend a little time learning the reasons behind the decisions that were made and talking to the delegation members who voted on it. And review the operation of county government with those delegates that have been there a few years and then ask themselves “why am I so mad?” Maybe it’s because I have a “D” after my name. Well if that’s the case you need to get over it. All I ever did was engage the workforce in solving the problems and try to make it an interesting, rewarding and enjoyable place to work. And that gave us tax cuts and surpluses. So I have to ask “why are you so mad?” As I suggested a few months ago, you should take this example to Concord and show Bill O’Brien and Jeb Bradley how to make government work. It’s not by demonizing the workforce or blaming unions. It’s by engaging the workforce to solve inefficiencies. They want government to work just as much as you do and the record from when I was on the commission speaks for itself. I told Mrs. Kenny that she needed to start being a commissioner and stop worrying about what Chip Albee is doing. There is plenty of work at the county that still needs to be done. And Frank McCarthy should learn that you are given two ears and one mouth so you can listen twice as much as you talk. Chip Albee Tuftonboro

and Time Warner Cable could shut off programming to surrounding towns if those towns don’t agree to pay to watch it. The process has already begun. “I am writing to advise you that within the next few weeks Conway Channel 3 broadcasts to Madison cable subscribers will cease,” Conway town manager Earl Sires wrote in an e-mail to the Madison town administrator Melissa Arias. “Should Madison wish to continue receiving Conway broadcasting,” Sires’ e-mail goes on to say, “please let me know so that I can advise Time Warner to hold off on discontinuing Madison broadcasts.” “We got that e-mail last week,” Arias said. Selectmen have scheduled a public hearing for May 31 at 4 p.m. “to get some feedback.” “We don’t have any money in our budget to pay what Bartlett and Jackson are paying,” she said. Bartlett and Jackson are both paying $5,000, part of an agreement that will allow residents there to watch Conway’s channel but doesn’t allow them to air their own programing. If a town wants to air its own shows, Conway selectman Mike DiGregorio said, it would have to pay $6,000. “We look at it as $5,000 a year to view and $1,000 to put their own stuff on the air,” he said, a formula that Albany and Fryeburg have used for years. Smaller towns like Eaton would be able to sign on for even less. Madison, however, hasn’t had to pay anything before. The shared channel status meant Mondays were dedicated to Madison TV programming, and Madison residents could watch Conway shows for free the rest of the week. If Madison wants to continue watching Conway programming and broadcasting its own, DiGregorio said, it will cost the town $6,000. The change, Arias said, will likely not go over well. “I think we’re going to have some
negative feedback,” she said. But paying Conway isn’t the only option open to Madison. "They will have their own channel on all week," said Time Warner's director of government relations Mike Edgecomb. Madison TV currently produces about 16 hours of programming a week, according to Madison TV board chair Jim Malloy. “They basically would be looking at a blue screen all week,” DiGregorio said. But that isn’t what Conway is hoping for. “We anticipate that all eight sending towns will participate,” DiGregorio said, referring to the towns that send students to Kennett High School. That’s because the town is in the midst of a major upgrade to its infrastructure that, when finished, will allow for live broadcast of football and basketball games from the high school stadium and gym. “Our goal is to have it up and running by the fall,” DiGregorio said. The town is toying with putting more cameras — three instead of one — at every football game and permanently attaching remote cameras to the rafters for basketball games. Many of the details are up in the air, but DiGregorio emphasizes none of it comes from taxes dollars. Time Warner's franchise fees from cable subscribers pay for most of it, and grants and sponsors cover the rest. The town is also looking to wire town hall for live broadcasts as well. The selectmen have already approved a plan to upgrade the microphones and cameras in the meeting room. But the biggest draw will be the sports games, which should be live by this coming season. “We’re keeping our fingers crossed,” said Bill Edmunds, the director at Valley Vision Channel 3. The town is hoping costs of providing that service, however, can be spread among a few more parties. see next page

The department still would have have burned through a chunk of its overtime budget, Conway police chief Ed Wagner said, even if the department had more people. Budget spikes are a part of providing emergency services, he said. “You have one major event and everything gets blown out.” The department is already one below normal staff level because of a retirement earlier this year, a position the department can’t afford to fill until the fall because the person cashed out a significant amount of sick and retirement time. Police just closed the application period for a new officer they put in their budget this year. That position will be filled around July 1, Wagner said. That means the department is currently four officers below the staffing level they were hoping to reach this year, a situation the police are planning to address next budget season. “We are probably going to ask for another person next year,” Wagner said. “At least one.” But more officers won’t address all the potential situations that could arise. “There is no way to anticipate these types of events,” Wagner said. He could ask for a $100,000 increase in overtime budget, currently $40,000, but “they’d laugh me out of the building.” The department could ask for a modest increase, he said, around $10,000, but “then if you don’t use it they cut it back.” And then inevitably at some point an event happens like what happened in late April. “I usually don’t spend $7,000 in overtime in two months,” Wagner said, but that’s what the department spent in the week following Dittmeyer’s disappearance. That same week there was an armed robbery at Jonathon’s restaurant and several major fire calls that required police assistance. The department has continued to spend on overtime since, Wagner said, but at a lower rate. Police can’t reduce staffing during holidays like the Fourth of July, he said, when the department has 15 officers on the streets, so they are looking other places to cut coverage in order to save money. “Now when people get sick it isn’t likely we can fill it,” he said.

Selectmen, police commission a complicated relationship BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
CONWAY — Do the police commissioners need the selectmen peering over their shoulder several times a year to keep their budget in order? Whether the answer is yes or no, it begins next week. The meetings were an idea selectman Crow
Dickinson suggested at the town deliberative meeting. “This hasn’t been done in 40 years,” he said. “It’s not an adversarial thing. It’s just common sense.” But behind the common sense is a hint of oversight. The police department overspent its 2010 see next page

budget by nearly $22,000. In 2008 and 2009 the department overspent its equipment budget in the final days of the year by thousands of dollars. Police bought bicycles, a digital camera, holographic gun sights, flashlights and other items Dickinson called “very extravagant.” The purchases eliminated most of the surplus that otherwise would been given back to the town. “The question is why?” Dickinson said. The police commission doesn’t appear to have been paying close attention, he said. “We shouldn’t be overspending budgets.” But right now police aren’t. The department’s first quarterly report shows the police have more than 78 percent of their yearly budget left over. “We’re not hiding anything,” chief Ed Wagner said. Not every selectman is interested in scrutinizing the police department. “I have no issue,” Larry Martin said. “We have really not much control over them because there’s a police commission. I guess it’s just a courtesy visit.” “We can make suggestions,” he said, “but we can’t implement anything.” The town and the police commission have a “relatively vague and unstructured rela-
“We have really not much control over them because there’s a police commission. We can make suggestions, but we can’t implement anything.” tionship,” according to town manager Earl Sires. The Conway police commission was formed by a legislative act back in 1969, not by the normal statute that allows for a police commission, and therefore what applies to other towns does not hold true for Conway. Selectmen can withhold money from the police department, he said, but they can’t tell the department how to spend it. The police and the town have gone back and forth about how to interpret who has control over certain aspects of the department and its budget before. The latest struggle, back in 1991, resulted in a memorandum of understanding between the town and the commission that is at best opaque. “This isn’t a definitive relationship,” Sires said. The commission is taking the face-to-face meeting seriously though. The three commissioners are making sure they are prepared for their first meeting, with a special commission meeting next Tuesday so they will be prepared to talk about their
budget that afternoon. “I don’t want to wait another month to look at numbers,” commission chair Theresa Kennett said. “I want to have a more recent view.” “It should be a fun time,” commissioner Rodney King said. Wagner said he intends to stay out of the discussion, although he will be there to answer any questions. “It’s really between them,” he said. The selectmen shouldn’t be trying to run the day to day operations of the police, selectman Mike DiGregorio said, “it’s not really our function.” But the selectmen do have more tools at their disposal to make sure they don’t overspend. “We’ve got an entire staff that keeps an eye on things,” DiGregorio said. Maybe the police could use that expertise in the future. But there are no clear lines, according to Sires, that outline how selectmen should fulfill their role controlling the department’s purse strings. “Nothing is straightforward and consistent in the way we do business,” Sires said.

CONWAY — Students at Kennett High School got a taste of some healthy breakfast and lunch alternatives Wednesday, and they liked them. The Kennett High student council held a healthy foods tasting during lunch hours, allowing fellow Eagles the opportunity to sample a number of different offerings from current school vendors Sysco, U.S. Foodservice and PFG Northcenter and then rate the items. Some of the most popular will appear on future breakfast and lunch menus in the school cafeteria as early as next month. "It turned out quite well," junior Thomas Gregston, treasurer for the student council, said. "We'd been working on this for a number

nett High, said. "These are things they don't necessarily get a chance to taste at home. We've got some prime options for them to try. All of our vendors have been wonderful, they've really embraced what we're trying to do." After sampling, the students headed to the rear of the cafeteria where they could vote on their favorites. Technology teacher Dan Mac Leon set up nine laptop computers where students could fill in the brief survey, rating the items they sampled. An hour into the tastings, pizza was holding steady as a favorite with 54 percent of the Eagles. "The best part is it's free food," Mac Leon said, smiling, while enjoying a Greek yogurt. He also gave the chicken sausage a positive review. "We want everyone to pick what they like," Murphy said. "If things work out we could see some of these items next month and definitely next year for sure." Gregston and classmates Nisha Kondrat, Laura Jensen, Silas Bernier and Philip Mathieu spent the past few months meeting every Thursday from 7:15 to 8 a.m. with Murphy, school nurse Donna Barletta and principal Neal Moylan to bring the tasting to fruition. "It took quite a bit of work to bring it all together," Gregston said. "Tom from the kitchen contacted the vendors and they were willing to help us pull it off. Now with the data we collect we'll try to bring these ideas into the cafeteria."

Tough to Talk About There are a lot of personal health concerns that you may be reluctant to share because you’re embarrassed or even ashamed. Nobody likes to sit on a table wearing an exam gown and admit they’re passing so much gas lately their dog has moved out. You may blush, but do tell. Blushing is a small price to pay. Unfortunately, some of the things we often hide from our health care team can be a lot more serious and have consequences well beyond a little embarrassment. Here are three of these critical issues and a few ways to deal with them. Sexuality If you’re afraid tell the person who is in charge of your health- Suze Hargraves care that you’re gay, lesbian or bisexual then you may not understand your rights. You’re not going to be “outed” to the world. People who work in medical offices including front office staff sign confidentiality agreements. They’re also bound by law to respect and protect your privacy. If your provider is treating you without knowledge of your sexual orientation you could be missing out on information on health issues that are of specific importance to gay, lesbian and bisexual patients. Homophobia has no place in health care. If you feel threatened or are made to feel uncomfortable by sharing your sexuality with your health care provider you need to request to be seen by someone else or find care elsewhere. No one has the right to judge you or provide a lower quality of healthcare in any way because of your sexuality. Drug Use Lying and addiction go hand in hand. Addicts learn to lie to cover up for their behavior. Unfortunately, the lying doesn’t usually come to a screeching halt just because a medical professional is present. Even occasional drug users are pretty good at lying. It’s all part of the drug use dynamic. Unfortunately, lying about drug use and/or addiction could cost you your life. Without a complete picture, your provider could prescribe a medication that might have lethal consequences when combined with a recreational drug. A symptom that appears as one thing might in fact be something entirely different. In New Hampshire, a provider does not have a legal obligation to report drug abuse to the authorities. If you want to clarify that with your provider simply ask, “What is your policy for dealing with someone who uses drugs illegally?” No matter what your reason, if you don’t feel you can establish an honest relationship with that particular health care provider you may want to consider asking for another provider or seeking care elsewhere. Abuse Physical, emotional and sexual abuses are difficult things for a victim to admit. Abusers use fear and humiliation to keep victims quiet. Victims of abuse often don’t seek medical attention for any reason because they fear that their situation will be discovered resulting in an escalation of abuse as retaliation from the abuser. If you are being abused know that help is always available. see HARGRAVES page 18

How Do Animals Eat, Part 1
I thought it would be interesting to find out more about the way animals eat, so I reached out to Bruce Rengers, Ph.D., R.D., a professor at Metropolitan State College of Denver and a former zoo employee, and Jennifer Watts, a nutritionist at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. Here’s what I learned: What are common weightgain issues that animals share with humans? Bruce Rengers: Some but certainly not all animals, when they are sedentary and have easy access to food, such as in a zoo, definitely do become obese. The best example I have seen is orangutans. In the wild they are arboreal animals that move over large distances. It is hard to replicate that lifestyle in a zoo, so orangutans become obese and sometimes develop Type II
diabetes. I did not observe this with gorillas, however, even though the zoo gorillas lived in exactly the same type of environment and had the same food. There were other animals that were obese or overweight in the zoo, and we spent time making special diets to help them lose weight. There is a concern in zoos about what animals eat. People always want to feed zoo animals or pets the kinds of “seductive” foods we eat as humans. Feeding animals highly refined, sugary, fatty human foods (or natural foods that are high in fat) can cause them to start rejecting their normal foods. There is, for example, concern about giving birds nuts and seeds that are very high in fat because they will then start rejecting their normal seeds and other foods that are not so high in fat.
How often do animals eat? I’m sure all animals are different, but is there an overall theme or pattern? Jennifer Watts: Most animals are fed twice a day. Animals with faster metabolisms (passerine birds, for example) must have food throughout the day, while animals with slower metabolisms (snakes, alligators, etc.) eat only once or twice per week, or even every other week. Ruminants (camels, giraffes, bison, cattle, etc.) cannot be offered one grain meal per day; it must be spread out to two or three meals to avoid rumen acidosis. They must also have access to hay or grass most of the day to maintain rumen health. For most carnivores we institute a “fasting day” or “bone day” when they don’t get their normal amount of food. see PLATKIN page 20

Eye on Vision Health
Dr. Gary Cole and Dr. Laurel Pulsifer
Managing cataracts: Clouding the internal lens A cataract is the clouding of the normally transparent lens of the eye. Cataracts can be a natural part of the aging process in the eye, but can also be caused by injury, some adult-onset diseases or genetics. To understand cataracts one must first look at the lens of the eye, where cataracts form. The lens is normally clear and permits the eye to change focus from distance to near in young people. As we age, the lens loses its ability to change focus, causing the need for reading glasses or bifocals. The lens is made of water and proteins arranged in a very specific manner to allow for transparency. A cataract forms when these proteins no longer line up but begin to clump together. This protein clumping occurs as we age for the majority of people with cataracts, but studies have shown that diabetes, smoking, poor diet, certain medical conditions and overexposure to ultraviolet light can exacerbate protein clumping. There are three primary types of cataracts: Nuclear cataract. This cataract forms in the center of the lens and is due to natural aging changes. Subcapsular cataract. This type begins at the back of the lens. It is found most often in diabetics, and patients with extreme farsightedness or retinitis pigmentosa. Subcapsular cataracts can also be caused by high levels of steroid use. Cortical cataract. This type forms in the lens cortex and gradually extends its spokes from the outside of the lens to the center. This type is seen often in diabetics. Cataracts may also appear in association with an eye injury or trauma, or the as aftereffect of radiation exposure. In rare cases, children can be born with a cataract, which is called a congenital cataract. Cataract Symptoms Cataracts can develop slowly over time, so symptoms are often very subtle. Cataract symptoms can include: • Cloudy or blurry vision. • Colors seem faded, yellowed or brownish. • Glare from headlights or sunlight. • A halo may appear around lights. • Poor night vision and difficulty driving at night. • Double vision or multiple images in one eye. (This symptom may clear as the cataract advances.) • More frequent prescription changes in your eyeglasses or contact lenses. • An improvement in near vision is possible. Note: These symptoms also can be a sign of other eye problems. If you have any of these symptoms, check with your eye care professional. Preventative Measures Medical researchers are have been studying the causes of cataracts for many years to learn more
about how they form. Four ways to reduce the risk of cataract development include: • Limit UV exposure. Wear sunglasses and hats to shield eyes from exposure to the sun. • Eat a diet high in antioxidants. Fruits and vegetables that are rich in greens, oranges and reds have high antioxidant levels, which some studies show are important to eye health. • Limit exposure to radiation. Though some exposure is inevitable from X-rays, cancer treatments or high altitude activities like mountain climbing or piloting aircraft, protecting the eyes when experiencing potential exposure may limit their effect. • Live a healthy lifestyle. Some studies show correlation between cataracts and obesity, smoking, high blood pressure, use of corticosteroids, and excessive alcohol consumption. Diet, exercise and monitoring conditions such as diabetes and blood pressure can help protect you eyes. Treatment In its early stages, the symptoms of a cataract can be improved by a stronger prescription, bifocals, brighter reading light and magnification. Once the cataract begins to seriously affect vision, cataract surgery should be considered. Cataract surgery is a very common and successful procedure. It is the most frequently performed surgery in the United States, with as many as 3 million Americans having the procedure done each year. While there are many new options for lens replacement, including multifocal lenses, most surgeons are very conservative in their use of these new lenses, preferring to limit surgical procedures to a single, “tried and true” implant. Most cataract surgeries are performed as outpatient procedures and recovery times are generally short. Many conditions can cause a decline in vision, but fortunately cataract patients can benefit from treatments with remarkably high success rates to restore vision. As with any symptomatic eye condition like cataracts, it is important to have regular eye examinations to monitor any developments and ensure eye health. Dr. Gary Cole and Dr. Laurel Pulsifer practice eye care at Conway Eye Care. Founded in 1925, Conway Eye Care and its sister office Coos Eye Care in Berlin, are full service vision care centers, offering complete eye exams for patients of all ages; OCT scanning diagnostics; and eye surgery and treatment for eye diseases. Since 1982, they have been affiliated with Maine Eye Center in Portland, Me., one of the largest specialty ophthalmology facilities in New England. The offices accept new patients and participate in most major health insurance plans. For more information, call Conway Eye Care at (603) 356-3000 or Coos Eye Care at (603) 752-3510.

Bridgton Hospital clinic offers diabetes education program BRIDGTON — The Bridgton Hospital Diabetes Clinic will sponsor its four-part diabetes education program on June 13, June 14, June 20 and June 21, from 6:308:30PM. The sessions will be held in the Bridgton Hospital specialty clinic lobby. Bridgton Hospital has received the American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate for a quality diabetes self-management education program. The series requires physician referral and early registration is suggested due to its popularity (class size is limited to assure personal attention). Topics covered include: the importance of exercise and physical activity, healthy meal plans and diabetes, hypoglycemia signs and symptoms, medications to control diabetes, complications and diabetes, diabetes and eye care, and diabetes and proper foot care. Medicaid and most insurance plans cover the course registration fee. In addition to Elaine Drew, RN/CDE, a registered nurse who is also a certified diabetes nurse educator (CDE), lecturers will include Bridgton Hospital professionals Denyell Gerchman, pharmacist, Linda Russell, MA, RD/LD, CDE, registered dietician, and Karen Bogdan, OT, occupational therapist. Dr. N. Scott Ferguson, optometrist, will discuss diabetes and eye care. These classes are designed to give general information about diabetes and help the patient manage their diabetes. The course also introduces patients to a diabetes support system. A dietary consultation is required, and should be done before the classes begin. Please contact Linda Russell, RD/LD,CDE at 6476062 to schedule an appointment. Participants are encouraged to bring a relative or a friend with them. For more information about the program or to register call 207-647-6064, Elaine Drew, RN/ CDE, or Susan Cooper RN.
PLATKIN from page 16
This strategy replicates the way the animals would eat naturally. Most zoos, however, cannot duplicate true natural feeding i.e., feeding a lion 30 pounds of meat then letting it fast for five to six days because this would not provide consistent behavior from the animal for training and evacuating. We need most animals to evacuate reliably so that keepers can clean the exhibit, remove the animal from the exhibit to do a physical/visual check and examine the exhibit. Any animal that needs to move from its exhibit area to a behindthe-scenes holding area usually has the “good stuff” saved for its evening meal, because if the animal knows that it’s going to get something good afterwards, it will be more compliant about moving inside. How much do animals eat? Jennifer Watts: For larger animals, it ranges between 2 and 5 percent of body weight but can increase to upwards of 25 percent in smaller animals with fast metabolisms. For example, poison dart frogs need to have fruit flies and -inch crickets available at most times, while larger frogs and toads get full-size crickets every other day. Our Andean condors get a rat or rabbit three times a week. Humboldt penguins, which weigh 7 to 8 pounds, get fed about ¾ to 1 pound of fish daily (supplemented with vitamin E and thiamin). Dwarf mongooses get 6 grams of dry dog food, 6 grams of wet cat food and about 3 grams of mealworms and/or crickets daily. They also get a mouse, fish, or rib bone once a week. The lions and tigers (which weigh anywhere from 350 to 550 pounds) get fed about 4 to 8 pounds of commercial supplemented meat product six days a week; marine mammals weighing 300 to 450 pounds are offered between 10 and 15 pounds of fish daily; and the grizzly bears (700 to 900 pounds) are offered between 7 and 40 pounds of food, depending on the time of year. Animals with hoofs eat the majority of their diet as hay, but again, size is a huge factor.
Small duikers (African forest deer) weigh about 4 pounds compared with bison or giraffes that are both around 1,400 pounds. Do animals eat for no reason? Out of boredom? Jennifer Watts: In the wild, no, but boredom is rarely an issue in the wild. Besides all of the nondiet reasons animals move and forage, food items come into season at different times and can be difficult to procure and/or open. In captivity, the presentation of the diet makes it easy to eat, and foraging time is greatly reduced. To introduce variety, we try to offer diet items that are not peeled or husked so that the animals need to work for the food, and the animals seem to enjoy it. Watching gorillas and orangutans cracking coconuts is very entertaining because they do it with such fervor and determination! Many animals will eat what is placed in front of them to the point of obesity because they have evolved to eat opportunistically whenever food presents itself. Some non-mammalian species, such as carnivorous birds and herbivorous reptiles, seem to have much more ability to self-regulate caloric intake, but it also depends on the species and the individual. There are small felids (various types of carnivorous cats) at our zoo that will turn their noses up at food at a certain point while a certain large tortoise species will just eat and eat and eat. In my position, it’s difficult to say whether an animal would continue to eat if given unlimited food; I don’t let that happen! Boredom usually manifests itself in undesirable behaviors or social stress, so we use diet items spread out over the day to alleviate that stress, but the items offered are always within the animal’s daily caloric allotment.

Masonic Lodge fund-raising breakfasts May 22
Having a chance to return to my hometown of Newmarket this past weekend was an experience wrought with emotions. The foremost being sadness at the loss of someone so young. The second being excitement at seeing friends that I have not seen in 28 years. It was amazing to remember someone when they were 18 and then seeing them again at 45. The kid you remember now has gray hair, but they are just the same as they were over 20 years ago. It is truly amazing to think how fast time has gone by. It definitely makes you stop and think about all the things you have yet to accomplish. Keeping in touch with people from my past is definitely top on the list of things that I want to do. I hope everyone has a great week and makes a call or writes a letter to someone special in their life that they have not spoken to in a while. Life is short, enjoy it while you can. If you missed kindergarten registration, it is not too late. Contact the school at 374-2331 if you have a child who will turn 5 on or before Sept. 30, 2011 and you live in the Bartlett School District. Did you know that each year the Masonic Lodge in North Conway hosts more than a dozen fund-raising breakfasts for local non-profit organizations and charitable causes? All of the money raised at these breakfasts goes directly to the beneficiary and more than $30,000 has been raised to date. One breakfast each year is set aside to raise money for the program itself, to cover their costs. That breakfast will take place on Sunday, May 22, from 8 to 11 am. In addition to the amazing buffet provided, there will be a raffle of items donated by local businesses. The Masonic Lodge is located above the movie theater in North Conway Village. For more information or to donate an item for the raffle, call Deb Fitzpatrick at 356-2122. Support a LIBRARY from page 21

By Holiday Mathis tions come from everywhere. You are extra-sensitive and will process your feelings and express them in a way that others can understand. You are a kind of translator. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will get some practice in the art of wasting time. Have fun with this and be guilt-free. Without all the messing and joking around, nothing intelligent will be accomplished. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You perceive and understand what another person is going through, even though this one is trying very hard to “act normal.” Maybe you’re able to do this because you’ve been there yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Mistakes were made -- that much is clear. You will see the brighter side of the situation because you believe life gets better as we learn from our past follies and grow beyond them. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your soul needs expression. You’re still looking into the ways and methods available to you to do this. Investigate your creative and musical talent. You will experience, listen and appreciate art on a new level. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 19). You’ll enjoy friends and new experiences in the next five weeks. June features an emotional commitment and, at month’s end, a windfall. Bond with family in July -- you succeed through united efforts. In September, you will benefit from a scientific advance. A stroke of luck will transform your home environment in November. Leo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 9, 2, 26 and 44.
Cul de Sac
ARIES (March 21-April 19). A secret communication may bring a thrill. It will be exciting to know something that others do not. You’ll likely sit with the information a long time as you mull over what to do with it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The network you have built around you makes you stronger. You’ll exercise the full potential of your material and nonmaterial resources. You’ll use your connections and put your talents to work. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Over time, you will make a substantial contribution to the world community. This happens in small daily increments. You have special luck in foreign trade or in working through legal matters. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Extremes of thinking will bring you to the most interesting ideas. This can also break you free of futile thought patterns. Dare to be an intellectual outsider. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You and a loved one may have different ambitions, but you are equally passionate about them. It is this high level of drive that brings you together in mutual support and admiration. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll have luck in matters of publicity, publishing and politics. People see the best in you and also attribute glowing qualities to you that you have yet to develop. You’ll be idolized. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those who always feel the need to talk are the worst listeners. Your ego isn’t as big as some of those around you, and therefore, you will be the best listener. You will understand the circumstances completely. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Emo-

Today is Thursday, May 19, the 139th day of 2011. There are 226 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 19, 1967, the Soviet Union ratified a treaty with the United States and Britain banning nuclear and other weapons from outer space as well as celestial bodies such as the moon. (The treaty entered into force in Oct. 1967.) On this date: In 1536, Anne Boleyn, the second wife of England’s King Henry VIII, was beheaded after being convicted of adultery. In 1780, a mysterious darkness enveloped much of New England and part of Canada in the early afternoon. In 1909, the Ballets Russes (Russian Ballets), under the direction of Sergei Diaghilev, debuted in Paris. In 1921, Congress passed, and President Warren G. Harding signed, the Emergency Quota Act, which established national quotas for immigrants. In 1935, T.E. Lawrence, also known as “Lawrence of Arabia,” died in Dorset, England six days after being injured in a motorcycle crash. In 1943, in an address to the U.S. Congress, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill pledged his country’s full support in the fight against Japan. In 1962, during a Democratic fundraiser at New York’s Madison Square Garden, actress Marilyn Monroe sang “Happy Birthday to You” to guest-of-honor President John F. Kennedy. In 1964, the State Department disclosed that 40 hidden microphones had been found in the U.S. embassy in Moscow. In 1971, poet Ogden Nash, known for his humorous light verses, died in Baltimore at age 68. In 1994, former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis died in New York at age 64. One year ago: President Barack Obama condemned Arizona’s crackdown on illegal immigration and pushed instead for a federal fix he said the nation could embrace, showing solidarity with his guest of honor, Mexican President Felipe Calderon, who called Arizona’s law discriminatory. Today’s Birthdays: PBS newscaster Jim Lehrer is 77. TV personality David Hartman is 76. Actor James Fox is 72. Actress Nancy Kwan is 72. Author-director Nora Ephron is 70. Actor Peter Mayhew is 67.

For Sale by Abigail Van Buren
READERS ADVISE ANGRY STUDENT TO MAKE THE MOST OF COLLEGE
DEAR ABBY: May I respond to “Bound for College” (April 9), the high school senior who is distressed because she may have to go to a state university? This is America, the land of opportunity, NOT the land of entitlement. A college education is a luxury, not a right. How fortunate she is to have parents who can send her to college. It is my hope that her father does get that job at the university. What an excellent benefit he will have to get reduced tuition for his offspring. If, however, that is not good enough for her, it is her right to refuse that gift. Then she may go to the school of her choice AND pay for it herself. With the cost of tuition today, that will be quite an undertaking. There are a number of options: student loans, grants, scholarships, a job or an enlistment in the military. As you mentioned, Abby, in your response, education is what you make of it. My suggestion to “Bound for College” is, lose the attitude of entitlement, look at how blessed you are, rethink your priorities and make the most of your opportunities. -- MIKE M. IN BLOOMSBURG, PA. DEAR MIKE: Thank you for your letter. Readers unanimously agreed that “Bound” needs to make the most of the opportunities that come her way and start thinking and acting like an adult. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I could have written the same letter years ago. The similarities are uncanny. I was accepted to my dream school, but due to my family’s financial difficulties, I ended up attending my backup school, one of the largest public in-
stitutions in the country. During the first semester, I was bitter and angry. Slowly but surely, I began to appreciate the benefits unique to a large state university. I enrolled in an honors academic program, which allowed me to receive a rigorous education from an amazing faculty. I became exposed to people from different cultures with differing perspectives. There were numerous student organizations and clubs. I found new hobbies and became active in causes that were important to me. Although I was worried about the school’s party reputation, I quickly found other students who felt the same way I did. “Bound,” the college experience will be what you make of it. For me, it was instrumental in shaping my future. I took advantage of the many resources available on campus. It opened up avenues for me and, most important, helped me to discover myself. I will be starting graduate school as a financially independent adult, and I can finally do it on my own terms. -- SOPHIA K., ARLINGTON, TEXAS DEAR ABBY: You can party at any school, and you can get an education at any school. To a large extent, you get out what you put in. Yes, there may be distractions on some campuses, but there will always be academically inclined students and opportunities if one looks for them. The “fit” of a school can’t really be determined until one gets there. So “Bound” should go where it is affordable and keep an open mind. She may find opportunities she has not yet considered. -- L.C. IN CHARLESTON, ILL.

BY CHARLIE TRYDER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN
FRYEBURG — Fryeburg Academy boys baseball coach Richard Ela thinks his Raider baseball team is talented enough to win games, but they experienced another week of coming up just short. Although some fielding errors contributed to losses in their last three games, they are not at the root of the Raiders’ ills. “We are making a lot of physical errors, but really it is mental errors that are hurting us more than the physical errors,” Ela said. “We just don’t do the little things well right now.” The Raiders started the week getting no-hit by Greely in Cumberland. Ela, frustrated by the lack of production, nevertheless understood. “That was the best pitching we have seen this year,” he said. “They threw three pitchers to keep them fresh, and they may have the best staff in the league.” Andrew Rascoe pitched a complete game for the Raiders. Although he gave up six runs, only two were earned as the Raiders made four errors. On Wednesday. the Raiders hosted Lake Region and fell behind 4-0 in the first three innings. They got themselves back in the game in the fourth with four runs. Ian McFawn, who according to Ela, provided a quality start, gave up two runs in the fifth and the Raiders fell behind 6-4. Colby Locke, who has been hitting the ball hard lately, renewed the Raiders’ hopes with a blast in the bottom of the inning that fought through the wind to make it out in straight away center. “It was a bomb,” Ela noted. “That is the deepest part of our field and the wind was blowing in pretty hard.” The Raiders pushed runners into scoring position in the sixth and seventh innings, but they could not get the big hit when needed. The Lakers added a run in the sixth for the 7-5 final. McFawn pitched six innings and had to overcome three Raider errors. Brady Lloyd entered in the sixth frame and finished the game. Locke was the only repeat hitter for the Raiders adding a single to his home run on the day. At Poland on Friday, the Raiders scored twice

it is mental errors that are hurting us more than the physical errors. We just don’t do the little things well right now.”
in the top of the third to take a 2-1 lead. Unfortunately, the Raiders had loaded the bases with nobody out, and they appeared headed for a big inning. The Poland pitcher was struggling and not throwing strikes. Fryeburg did not take advantage according to Ela. “We did not have good situational hitting,” he said. “We did not make their pitcher throw strikes. We went after some 2-0 pitches that resulted in easy outs.” Andrew Berg made the start on the mound, and Ela said he made a good quality start, “Andrew pitched really well for his first start.” Poland scored three in the bottom of the fourth to take a 4-2 lead. The Raiders pushed a run across in the fifth to get back within one run, but they surrendered another run in the bottom of the fifth to fall behind 5-3. Although they got back to 5-4, the Raiders could not get the bats going with only three hits on the day. Rascoe came in for Berg in the fifth to finish the game on the mound. Brady Lloyd had four walks on the day while scoring a run and driving in a run. Peter Bacchiocci had a single, a double and two stolen bases. The Raiders recently have been in a number of one and two run games. They continue to get decent pitching, but their fielding hurts them. They are getting hitting from the middle of their lineup, but they can’t get big hits when needed from other parts of their lineup. It is, however, the mental errors bother Ela the most. If the Raiders can eliminate the mental errors, they will be able to overcome the physical errors and manufacture some runs with their speed. Fryeburg, now 1-10 on the season, were rained out Monday against Falmouth. The Raiders will close out the week at home, hosting Sacopee Valley on Friday at 4 p.m., again, weather-permitting.

FRYEBURG — The Fryeburg Academy girls’ tennis team started the year slowly, but has remained positive. According to coach Chris Chaffee, the Raiders positive approach will pay dividends. “The girls have a strong desire to learn and improve,” he said. “They are always trying and learning how to transfer the things we work on in practice to match play. They are learning that in tennis it is about not only outplaying your opponent, but out thinking by always finding a solution.” In the Raiders’ last three matches, they have demonstrated improvement. Last week the Raiders lost 3-2 against Greely. Number one singles Marina Houlihan battled intensely and won a tough three set match, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6. At No. 2 singles, Simone Marie granddad her opponent to win a tough two set match 6-4, 7-6. Although Chelsea Abraham has been playing well, she lost a tough two match set , 7-6, 6-4. Looking for one more match to seal the victory after their number one and two singles won, the Raiders were unable to break through. After Abraham lost, the doubles teams were swept. The first doubles team, Sasha Azel and Alicia McDonald, lost 6-2, 6-3; and Jessica Chang and Haley Nadeau won their first set 6-4, but fell 6-4, 6-2 in the last two sets. The Raiders hosted Cape Elizabeth after Greely, and Houlihan won a competitive match at No. 1 singles, 6-4, 6-2. The No. 1 doubles team of Azel/McDonald played strong strategic doubles to beat Cape Elizabeth’s duo in straight convincing sets 6-3, 6-3. Unfortunately, the Raiders could not capture another match. Marie lost at No. 2 doubles 6-4, 6-2 and Abraham fought back in the second set, but lost 6-0, 7-5. Number two doubles Cheng and Nadeau lost 6-2, 6-4. At Old Orchard Beach on Wednesday, the Raiders broke through and earned their first win of the year 4-1. Number one singles Houlihan won her third singles match of the year 7-5, 6-1. Number three singles player Abraham won her first singles match of the season. Fryeburg’s No. 2 doubles team of Cheng/Nadeau also won their first match 6-1, 6-0. Azel/McDonald won at No. 1, 6-1, 6-1. — Charlie Tryder
