LOS ANGELES (NY Times) — Four decades ago, Lewis Brown had galloped down the court, all 6 feet, 11 inches and 260 pounds of him. The basketball center from Compton lead his high school to three championships in the 1970s, and whom he once played against in a high school tournament. He was a regional legend, destined for stardom. Now, at 56, Brown’s life is an arc of triumph and defeat, of lost opportunities and wasted potential. In his view, he is here — one amid the thousands in this city’s homeless — because of coaches who could not understand his emotional turmoil, who never appreciated his talent. His coaches and teammates remember it differently. He was, they say, a difficult player: erratic and combative. Family members said he was using cocaine at University of Nevada at Las Vegas. “Let me put it like this,” said his sister, Jeri Brown. “Drugs were his downfall.” The Las Vegas Sun last year ranked Mr. Brown the 20th best player in the UNLV’s history. Today, Mr. Brown is measured by what he should have been. “Lewis Brown had a lot of talent,” said Jerry Tarkanian, the legendary coach who recruited him at U.N.L.V. “But he never really lived up to his potential.”

NATO says it has Qaddafi on the run ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

TRIPOLI, Libya (NY Times) — NATO officials expressed increased confidence Friday that Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi’s military position was weakening, and that allied airstrikes had prevented his forces from making sustained attacks on rebel forces and had driven him into hiding. A fire aboard a boat in the port of Tripoli that was hit by NATO airstrikes on Thursday.

“NATO nations and partners agree we have taken the initiative, we have the momentum,” said the alliance spokeswoman, Carmen Romero, said at a Friday news briefing, summarizing the view of NATO ambassadors who met earlier in the week. While highlighting a new confidence among NATO officials, the comments also appeared to continue a concerted NATO and American effort to increase the pres-

sure on Colonel Qaddafi and sow fear among his supporters. A NATO military spokesman, Wing Commander Mike Bracken, said of Colonel Qaddafi: “Effectively he has gone into hiding.” He said that NATO strikes had helped relieve sieges on the rebel-held cities of Ajdabiya and Misurata and forced the government into defensive positions around the eastern oil town of Brega.

Divisions are clear as Obama Fighting for the right to and Netanyahu discuss peace lie about military service

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel told President Obama on Friday that he shared his vision for peace between Israelis and Palestinians and then promptly listed a series of nonnegotiable conditions that have kept the two sides at an impasse for years. Sitting at Mr. Obama’s side in the Oval Office, leaning toward him and at times looking him directly in the eye, the Israeli leader bluntly rejected compromises of the sort Mr. Obama outlined the day before in hopes of reviving a moribund




Saturday High: 69 Record: 94 (1975) Sunrise: 5:13 a.m.

peace process. Mr. Obama, who had sought to emphasize Israel’s concerns in his remarks moments earlier, stared back. In his remarks, delivered after a meeting that stretched to more than two hours, far longer than scheduled, Mr. Netanyahu warned against “a peace based on illusions,” seemingly leaving the prospect for new talks as remote as they have been since the last major American push for speech collapsed last fall. Officials said there were no plans for formal negotiations or any mechanisms in place to push the two sides forward.

DENVER (NY Times) — In 2009, a burly Colorado man named Rick Duncan was a rising star among local veterans groups, advocating on behalf of struggling soldiers and holding forth about his own powerful experiences returning from Iraq as a wounded Marine. The problem was, none of it was true, not even his name. Duncan was actually Richard G. Strandlof, a troubled drifter who had never served in the military. Instead, he used his bogus story to work his way into the company of prominent politicians and admiring veterans. Strandlof was eventually arrested by the F.B.I. and charged with violating the Stolen Valor Act, a 2006 law that makes it a federal crime to lie about being a military hero. Strandlof has been fighting the case against him, arguing that the law violates his right to free speech. Simply telling a lie, his lawyers assert, does not always constitute a crime. Now, a federal appeals court in Denver is weighing whether the act is indeed unconstitutional.

Atlas Shrugged Based upon the controversial 1957 novel by Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged follows the struggles of Dagny Taggart, a railroad heiress trying to maintain her integrity, and keep her family’s railroad alive in the midst of a rapidly decaying world.

Hampton: ‘It will never be forgotten’ BY JASON SCHREIBER THE UNION LEADER

HAMPTON – Elissa Boulanger and her 5-year-old son, Cameron, placed purple lilacs – New Hampshire’s state flower – along with two candles, a framed picture of a happy Camden Hughes, and a note outside the sign in front of the Stone Gable Inn. “At first your name was unknown,” the note said. “Now it will never be forgotten.” The memorials that began in South Berwick, Maine, in the days after the 6-year-old’s body was discovered wrapped in a blanket on the side of a dirt road have now moved to Hampton, the place where New Hampshire prosecutors say Camden was murdered at the hands of his mother, Julianne McCrery. Boulanger and her blond-haired son who looks a lot like Camden showed up Thursday afternoon outside the motel where McCrery spent a night before allegedly leaving her son’s body in Maine. They came to mourn for a little boy they never knew and whose name wasn’t known for days. “When you heard his name it was almost sickening relief,” said Boulanger, of Newmarket. “We had an identity and we had something more to hold on to.” Down the road from the Route 1 motel a sign outside Hampton Sand and Gravel carried the message “R.I.P. Camden.” The pain clearly runs deep in this tourist town described by one local resident as a “happy place.” Cat Fortin, who runs Hampton Sand

and Gravel, said she felt she needed to put the message up. “I’m just so saddened by the whole thing and felt bad for everyone involved,” she said. “The whole community just can’t believe something like this could happen in town. It just hits home.” Camden’s death has hit home in Irving, Texas, as well. That’s where he lived with his mother in their mobile home and where they went to church. “We were very surprised and very shocked to hear of the news of Camden’s death and the recent reports of the cause of his death,” said John Durham, lead pastor at First Baptist Irving Church, where McCrery and her son were parishioners. Durham described Camden as a “very bright, very enthusiastic and very articulate young boy.” “He was very curious about things in the Bible and was eager to learn,” he said. The last time Camden attended church was May 1 when he participated in the Children’s Sunday School. “As a church we are mourning his death, and are truly leaning into God’s promises and God’s presence. We remembered together (Wednesday) night as a church that Jesus loves children.” As they grieve, many still wonder why McCrery was in New England and why Camden had to die. “We may never know,” said one Hampton woman, looking over at the Stone Gable Inn. New Hampshire Union Leader Correspondent Gretyl Macalaster contributed to this report.

CONWAY — The Kennett High boys and girls track teams will host the prestigious Wilderness League Championships today at 9 a.m. at the Gary Millen Stadium. The Lady Eagles not only defended their title for the third year in a row last year, but thoroughly dominated the 18-school field, scoring twice as many points at meet runner-up Prospect Mountain. The KHS boys enjoyed their best finish in 21 years, claiming second place overall. “I think it’ll be very close for the girls this time,” Bernie Livingston, Eagles’ head coach, said. “Raymond has a really good group of runners. and then there’s us and Prospect again. I think it might all come down to the final event to decide an overall winner. I think the quality of competition will be very good.” Livingston said the KHS boys are not as deep as last year but would like to see the Eagles make a run at a top five finish. The Eagles were in Bristol last Saturday competing against 10 other schools at Newfound Regional School. “We were missing a few people, but things went well overall,” Livingston said. “There were no official team standings, but I think our girls probably would have come out on top. Our boys did well, but Plymouth has a really strong boys group. I think they look like the clear favorite for Wilderness.” Livingston liked the fact that athletes had to run trials to qualify for the finals in the 100, 200 and hurdle events. Point scoring performances for the boys were: 100 meters — Mike Albert, second, 11.5 seconds; and Tristan MacLeod, fourth, 11.9. 1600 meters — Nick Jenis, third, 4:48. 4X100 relay — Ryan Goodson, Mike Mason, Albert and MacLeod won in

What services or programs would you like to see at Memorial Hospital? Memorial Hospital turned 100 years old on Tuesday, and a reception was held to acknowledge the milestone and to talk about some of the 100th-anniversary events that are planned. Those events include the planting of a time capsule this summer; establishment of an archive of historical documents and other memorabilia; a gala anniversary dinner at Cranmore in September; and an ongoing “Story Corps” project for members of the public to share their memories. But while celebrating its past, the hospital is looking to the future. PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scans were recently added. And the hospital plans to open a wound-care facility. “We all care about health care reform,” said hospital CEO Scott McKinnon at Tuesday’s reception. “Here at Memorial, regardless of where legislation takes us, we’re going to make sure we position ourselves well so we can take care of this community for 100 more years.” This week’s Tele-Talk: What services or programs would you like to see at Memorial Hospital?

Off the Wall The following are some of the comments posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page this week: U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta visits Conway. What would you like to say to the congressman, or ask him? “Wonder why he wouldn’t come up here and debate Carol Shea-Porter during the election. Wonder why he won’t take questions directly from people in town hall?” — Kelly DeFeo “Does he still stand by his vote in favor of the Ryan Budget that eliminates Medicare for anyone under the age of 54?” — Erik Corbett “What has he done for the northern part of his district so far?” — David Robinson “I have one: How can they continue to pass bills that have no money available to fund them.” — Darlene Trafford Leavitt Reaction to a photo of an audience member asking for respect from hecklers at the Guinta town hall meeting: “But heckling (aka shouting) has become the new pre-

ferred form of freedom of expression these days, hasn’t it?” — Ken Morrison “Gee, where were these mannerly folks when the teanuts were heckling Carol Shea-Porter?” — Susan Bruce “A year ago the Tea Partyists were cheering each other on as they heckled members of Congress in town hall meetings all over the country. Now, suddenly, they want respect when their newly elected representatives hold town hall meetings.” — Scott Hanson “Someone from the audience talked about the Pew report which concluded that a significant contributing cause of the deficit was the Bush tax cuts. The man then asked Guinta about raising taxes. Guinta then asked the audience to raise their hands if they thought they should pay more taxes. Well of course we didn’t raise our hands. We, the shrinking middle class, pay plenty of taxes. In fact, we are the ones carrying the tax burden in this country! If he asked, ‘Do you think the millionaires and billionaires in this country should be paying more taxes?’ I think a lot more hands would have been raised. I know mine would!” — Syndi Glod White

Republicans off to a slow start CONWAY — Four years ago this week the old Kennett High School gym was rocking. The place was jammed, the crowd was on its feet, and all the way down Main Street, well past the Conway Cafe, the cars lined Route 16. Sen. Barack Obama brought out one of the largest political gatherings in the history of Carroll County — and then his entourage moved west, to Hanover, where thousands of Dartmouth students filled the space between Rockefeller Center and Hitchcock Hall. Something big was happening. Last week the main thing in presidential politics here in New Hampshire, site of the first primary, was the meet-and-greet former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman held at Jesse's Restaurant in Lebanon, a log cabin-style steakhouse holding its popular crab fest this month. No presidential candidate at the Merrimack Republican Town Committee meeting, no White House wannabee at the Atkinson Republican Committee meeting. In any other political season could the New Hampshire Federation of Republican Women hold a lilac luncheon — this year's event was scheduled for this weekend in Concord — without a presidential candidate showing up? There will be a few stirrings this week — Huntsman at a house party in Durham Monday, and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich of Georgia at the Seacoast Republican Women's breakfast Thursday. But that's about it — nothing compared to the level of activity four years ago, when the campaign was raging like a North Country fireplace on a cold night. The story of the struggle for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 is the story of the dog that isn't barking — not here, nor in Iowa, site of the first presidential caucuses and where the Republican governor, Terry Branstad, last week all but begged GOP candidates to come to his state, build organizations ... and spend money. Just how slowly is this campaign opening? On March 21, former Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota formed an exploratory committee. At that point in the 2008 election cycle, 20 candidates of both parties had done so or had made clear they would. The biggest news so far this year has been about candidates dropping out: Gov. Haley Barbour of Mississippi, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Donald Trump. Not that we should be complaining. For years Americans considered their campaign seasons too long and believed that money and attention spent a year before an election were money and attention wasted. Look a few miles north to Canada, where the election season began March 26 and ended May 2 — and in that period an entire G-8 nation came to a decisive resolution of its political future. Maybe we should just enjoy the silence, pack up the fishing gear, repair to Big Diamond Pond for lake trout or the First and Second Connecticut Lakes for landlocked salmon and look skyward to watch Saturn move through Virgo as Gemini sinks below the western horizon. There are lots of reasons the public part of this year's campaign — quiet organizing has been

going on for some time — is starting late. One of them is Fox News, which employed five of the potential contenders, none of whom was particularly eager to relinquish the pay that went with being a network commentator. Another is voter fatigue, a national malady particularly virulent here. In New Hampshire, voters felt the energy of the Obama campaign and gave him a plurality of 10 percentage points, then two years later decisively swung the other way, electing a Republican senator and Republicans to both House seats while putting Republicans in charge of both chambers of the state legislature by substantial margins. The most active candidate so far may be former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, who has the advantage of familiarity from the 2008 campaign and of his status as a Massachusetts neighbor, three of whom (John F. Kennedy in 1960, Michael S. Dukakis in 1988 and John F. Kerry in 2004) won Democratic nominations. Romney has made few campaign appearances, but he did deliver a health care speech and has been building a campaign team and financial base -- raising an astonishing $10.25 million in a single day last week. The effects of this late public start are clear. Many of the big-money people in the GOP are holding back. Ordinarily donors wait to see how a race develops -- who's hot, who's not, and who is talking their language — but right now nobody's hot and, from the point of view at least of conventional Republicans, nobody's talking their language. The danger, of course, is that the Republicans are unilaterally disarmed while Democrats talk of raising as much as $1 billion for Obama's re-election campaign. But if Romney raises $40 million in this quarter alone, as his team suggests he could, he would put enormous financial pressure on late entrants, such as Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, who might need to raise $1 million a week. That kind of prodigious financial power assured Gov. George W. Bush of Texas the Republican nomination in 2000. His only real competition came from Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who won the New Hampshire primary but lost his momentum in South Carolina. The question is whether the financial dominance of Romney and the relative weakness of the other contenders — not counting Daniels, who might yet enter the fray — combined with the slow start, might amplify the Republicans' tendency to nominate someone who, like Richard M. Nixon in 1968, George H.W. Bush in 1988, Robert J. Dole in 1996 and McCain in 2008, is an established party figure and has run before. For Romney, a late-starting campaign might not be merely a characteristic of the race. It may be a key strategic element of it. David Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

Sweet deal for Conway and Time Warner To the Editor: According the front page article in the May 19, 2011 Conway Daily Sun, “Towns must pay for access to public access TV channel,” where selectman DiGregorio states, “We anticipate that all eight sending towns will participate.” I for one suggest the sending town’s selectmen tell Conway to pound sand! That $100,000 in equipment DiGregorio says Conway is getting from Time Warner to broadcast games live, etc. “will not come from tax dollars”. “Time Warner’s franchise fees from cable subscribers pay for most of it and grants ...” This is just another case where Conway has found a way to pass expenses on to the general public and the sending towns. Not only will the general public and send-

ing towns be required to pay more for Conway’s Channel 3 and through higher subscriber rates to Time Warner, but, these “grants” most likely originate from tax dollars. What a sweet deal for Conway and Time Warner! I suggest that Conway selectmen stop finding ways to spend our money in these hard times without our consent and that Time Warner should have spent that $100,000 to help expand high speed Internet to people in our outlining rural areas where it is not available. Having high speed Internet is far more important to these families and home businesses than watching live local sports which they cannot see anyway.

Guinta didn’t answer question at meeting To the editor: I attended Congressman Guinta’s Wednesday town meeting in Conway and didn’t get an answer to my question. I asked: “Your glossy four-page color mailer claims that the Ryan plan gives future Medicare beneficiaries the same plans enjoyed by Members of Congress. The crucial difference between the Ryan plan and congressional plans is that the latter are indexed to health insurers’ premiums and rise in step with them. But the Ryan plan indexes the premium vouchers to the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The CPI has grown at a much slower rate than health costs (2 percent or less vs. 6 percent per year). So indexing Medicare to the CPI shifts an ever greater share of medical expenses from your privatized Medicare to the household

budgets of the elderly and disabled. The CBO said by 2030, they’d be bearing 68 percent of their medical expenses. That’s not affordable and not a future I want for my children. My parents, who are in their 80s, can hardly afford the supplemental insurance now for the 20 percent not covered by Medicare. Explain why you misled us in your mailer, and why you support a plan that will result in the unnecessary suffering and early deaths of future seniors and the disabled?” Your answer didn’t address the crucial difference — premium support not rising with the costs of health insurance. So, again, why mislead us that the plan to privatize Medicare offers the same coverage as the congressional plans when it does not? Susan Mayer Lee

Signs proclaim Judgment Day is here, but local pastors say group sending wrong message

This sign, located on Route 16 in Ossipee, declares the end of the world will be on May 21. In New Hampshire, there are about dozen May 21 billboards. (DAYMOND STEER PHOTO)


OSSIPEE — If you are reading this it might already be too late — well, at least according to a Christian group claiming that today, May 21, is Judgment Day and you're damned if you haven't been saved yet. But local pastors say this group misrepresents the Bible. Even if nothing happens, what will become of May 21 believers, some of whom, have given up substantial sums of money to advertise Doom's Day? How many believers are in New Hampshire? Only time will tell. Family Radio has been putting up thousands of billboards around the world proclaiming the first day of judgment is today. They have advertised in a number of other

venues as well. The most local sign is located across the street from Jake's Seafood Restaurant on Route 16 in Ossipee. There's at least one other sign in Carroll County. That sign is located in Wakefield. Harold Camping is the leader of Family Radio. He began a non-profit ministry called Family Stations Inc. in 1958. In 1961, Camping began his call-in program, Open Forum, in 1961. Family Radio is based in California. Family Radio's efforts have drawn attention from media outlets such as Fox News, MSNBC, and even Stephen Colbert. According to the New York Post, Staten Island retiree, Robert Fitzpatrick, spent $140,000 of his life savings on advertising the end of the world. Fitzpatrick also wrote a self-published book based on

Camping's prediction. Camping has quite the media empire. Family Radio owns more than 140 radio stations around the country. He has written about 30 books and booklets, according to family The big picture, according to Camping, is a huge earthquake will strike the world today, but God's chosen people will be raptured away to safety. The saved who have already died will rise from their graves. So, apparently, there will be airborne zombies. Everyone else is unforgiven and thus will be tormented for five months. The world will be destroyed on Oct. 21. Then, says Camping, God will start over with everyone he likes. Here in New Hampshire we should be getting some forewarning since the earthquake will start at 6 p.m. on the

international dateline. If one assumes Camping is correct, we should see the earthquake on the international news around 2 a.m. It supposedly will strike at 6 p.m. in every time zone. In New Hampshire, there are about dozen May 21 billboards, said Michael Garcia, who helped place them. Garcia, a California resident, traveled across the country to spread the message. "Isn't a soul worth every penny?" Garcia asked rhetorically. As proof the prediction is correct, Garcia says that the movement has been successful in putting signs up in various Muslim countries. But still, Garcia isn't thrilled that the end is near. "I'm terrified," said Garcia. "I'm begging God for mercy." see next page

Page 14 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 21, 2011

from preceding page

Family Radio's website provides a rather lengthy explanation of how Camping arrived at the specific date. The short version is the world will only last 7,000 years after the Noah's flood. May 21 marks that special anniversary. But Rev. William B. Rose Jr., of Glen Community Baptist Church, doesn't buy Camping's argument. Rose first heard of the signs from reading a Conway Daily Sun story that was published a few weeks ago. Since then, Rose has mentioned the May 21 sign at a sermon. "I believe that the group has misinterpreted or misunderstood what the Scriptures say," said Rose. "We believe that Jesus Christ will come to this Earth again for many Biblical reasons. However, we are told not to set any dates, but rather wait and be ready for His return. " Dan Mitchum, lead pastor of First Congregational Church of Ossipee, also thinks Camping is wrong. Mitchum said he has carefully reviewed Camping's doctrine. "Family Radio’s interpretation of Scripture is atrocious and their theology is appalling," says Mitchum. "I can’t think of any respectable Bible teacher or theologian who would affirm their beliefs. I’m especially troubled by their treatment of Scripture. To put it simply, Harold Camping approaches the Bible as a code to be cracked and not as the divinely inspired Word of God." Mitchum is so confident Camping's Judgment Day prediction won't

happen that he is planning a sermon about God's wrath for Sunday. However, Mitchum does believe Judgment Day will happen at some point and that Jesus will return. Mitchum will discuss the May 21 movement at Sunday's service. He adds that Camping has a theory that churches have been ruled by Satan for the last 23 years. Mitchum says that idea is beyond his "comprehension." "It’s important for people to know that the billboards were put up without the knowledge or blessing of local churches," said Mitchum. Mitchum doesn't know any local people who are supporting the May 21 Judgment Day theory. He's been surprised how few people have commented about the sign. Only one person has asked him serious questions about it. Mitchum says he likes a quote from J.I. Packer, a well known contemporary theologian. "'No doubt it is true that the subject of divine wrath has in the past been handled speculatively, irreverently, even malevolently. No doubt there have been some who have preached of wrath and damnation with tearless eyes and no pain in their hearts,'" said Mitchum quoting Packer. But believer Brad Cowan, of Bedford, says churches rely on outdated information. Cowan has been listening to Camping for about 25 years. He moved to New Hampshire from California just a couple of years ago. Although the end is near, Cowan says he still hasn't given notice at work. see next page

Cowan works as a systems engineer. But he says believing in May 21 Judgment Day isn't about having a high IQ or even knowledge of the Bible. Instead, he says it's about having God open your spiritual eyes. One of the alleged signs of end times is the strength of the gay pride movement, according to Family Radio. However, Cowan stressed repeatedly that Family Radio is not engaging in "gay bashing." "Jesus didn't come for the righteous, he came for the sinners," said Cowan. "We are all sinners before God." Rose is clear that his church is not aligned with the May 21 movement. In addition, Rose said his church doesn't believe in the supposed Dec. 21, 2012 end date, which is another prophecy. Rose said his church also has nothing to do with other fringe elements such as the Westboro Baptist Church, in Kansas, which has been protesting the funerals of soldiers. Some people are taking the alleged Judgment Day in stride. About 65 people responded to the Conway Daily Sun's Facebook question about Camping's prediction. None of those people seem to be taking Camping's warning very seriously. Among the commenters is Sue Burris Parmenter. "I'm having all my kids home and their friends for a slumber party and then if we wake Saturday morning we are cooking a big breakfast," Parmenter stated. It seems likely they will get their breakfast because Camping made an erroneous prediction

back in 1994, according to press reports. Michael Kline wrote on Facebook, "Although I should not poke fun, there is a gold seal on the billboard certifying it's authenticity. 1,200 of these things nationwide — way to feed the poor, I suppose." Another Facebook commenter states May 21 is the date of Fryeburg's prom. The students should have a memorable evening either way. Carroll County commission chairman David Sorensen says the safety committee canceled a meeting and thus implied there is no plan to handle this allegedly impending catastrophe. Baha'i believer Liza Snyder doesn't think the end is coming today. Despite Camping warning of doom, she is still planning on having a Baha'i open house at her home in Eaton on Monday. In the Mount Washington Valley there are about 40 Baha'i followers. That open house will be a celebration of a holiday called the Declaration of the Bab. The Bab was an early prophet who announced the coming of a "promised one" named Baha'u'llah. The Baha'i faith is the newest of the world religions. It started in 1844 in Persia, which is modern day Iran. The teaching of this faith is that all religions come from the same God. The primary goal is unity. Snyder describes her religion as "progressive and all embracing." "It's totally the opposite from the vibes we get from this Judgment Day thing," said Snyder. "The teachings are very hopeful." However, this doesn't mean that there will be smooth sailing

for humanity, said Snyder. She says there will be tough times ahead — those will include economic, environmental and moral problems. Cade Caldwell responded to The Conway Daily Sun's Facebook question about the Judgment Day sign. He doesn't buy Camping's logic. Caldwell wrote that his father was a Baptist minister. "Scripturally, the Bible itself indicates that the angels occupying Heaven aren’t even aware of the actual date or hour," Caldwell stated. "I find it hard to believe some man sitting in the middle of Texas (if I’m correct on his location) can so simply and easily come up with the date." The Web has been abuzz with conspiracy theories too. Some say the signs are just setting the stage for a false flag attack by "the powers that be." Meanwhile atheists around the globe are planning rapture parties. Many people wonder where Camping got all the money for the signs. Cowan says the advertising blitz is funded with donations. Garcia knows many will doubt his message. "It will be like the days of Noah, there will be mockers," he said in a phone interview. Mellisa Ferland notes on Facebook that she’ll be getting married today. "At first the idea of the world ending on May 21 made me a little nervous. But I've had a change of thinking. If the world is going to end I can't think of any place I'd rather be than surrounded by 130 of my favorite people, laughing and having fun," writes Ferland.

New gazebo adds life to Kennett High campus Page 16 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 21, 2011


CONWAY — Twenty-three advanced building trades students have left their mark on Kennett High School. The Eagles — Leeana Hart, Christine Lamontaine, Ruby Bennett, Jennelle Hill, Wendell Kiesman, Alex Kidder, Tim Hill, Zachary Shackford, Mike Mosher, Tim Currier, Tyler Rokowski, Eric Toussaint, Edward Prevost, Zachary Cromwell, Greg Palmer, John Colcord, Ben Peare, John Angelone, Chris Collins, John Marshall, Tyler Eldridge, David Farinella and Ricky Johnston — have completed a new gazebo that will rest outside the school cafeteria and be used by current and future students. Jason Daggett, property maintenance/building trades teacher in the MWV Career and Technical Center at Kennett, said the project took about a month to complete with the students doing everything from designing to building and shingling the roof. "I think they did a great job," Daggett said. "It was a good project for us." Wednesday was moving day and with the help of Andy Bechtold and David Groutfrom, of the school's maintenance department, along with a tractor, the gazebo made its way from the parking lot at the tech center to its new permanent location. "We couldn't be happier with how it turned out, it's outstanding," Neal Moylan, principal of Kennett High, said. "It's in a great spot. Now students

Hamilton surrenders cycling gold medal BY JULIET MACUR NEW YORK TIMES

The American cyclist Tyler Hamilton, the 2004 Olympic gold medalist in the time trial, has voluntarily surrendered his gold medal to the United States Anti-Doping Agency after admitting to doping during his cycling career, the International Olympic Committee said Friday. “The I.O.C. has been in touch with Usada, which indicated that the athlete has already rendered his gold medal — Athens 2004 time-trial race — and that they are currently pursuing an inquiry,” Emmanuelle Moreau, a spokeswoman for the I.O.C., wrote in an e-mail. “The I.O.C. has taken note of Hamilton’s confession and will, of course, study any potential Gamesrelated implications.” Usada confirmed in a statement Friday that Hamilton had returned the medal and said, “We will continue to work with the I.O.C. and the U.S.O.C. as appropriate concerning the final implications of our overall investigation.” Hamilton, 40, was a teammate of Lance Armstrong’s on the United States Postal Service team, and helped Armstrong win the Tours in 1999, 2000 and 2001. Armstrong won seven consecutive Tours from 1999 to 2005. On Thursday, in a report on the

“CBS Evening News,” Hamilton said he had seen Armstrong inject himself with the banned performanceenhancing drug EPO to win those Tours. A full interview with Hamilton will be broadcast Sunday on “60 Minutes” on CBS. “I saw him inject it more than one time,” Hamilton said. “Yeah, like we all did. Like I did many, many times.” Hamilton, who has been sanctioned twice for doping, is the latest teammate to say he witnessed Armstrong’s use of performance-enhancing drugs. One year ago, Floyd Landis — who was stripped of the 2006 Tour de France title for doping — shook the world of cycling by saying he and Armstrong were part of a systematic doping scheme while racing for the Postal Service team. Armstrong, who retired from competitive cycling this year, is the focus of a federal investigation into doping in cycling. The inquiry aims to prove that Armstrong and his associates committed fraud against the government, among other crimes. No indictment has been announced, but people with knowledge of the investigation, who are not authorized to speak publicly about it, say Armstrong may be facing charges of fraud, money laundering, corruption, drug trafficking and wire fraud. A federal grand jury in Los Angeles has been investigating the matter since last summer.

Boogaard died from mix of alcohol and oxycodone BY JEFF Z. KLEIN NEW YORK TIMES

Derek Boogaard of the New York Rangers died from an accidental overdose of the drug oxycodone mixed with alcohol, the office of the medical examiner in Minnesota’s Hennepin County announced Friday in a news release. The statement said that cause of death was “mixed alcohol and oxycodone toxicity.” It also said the “manner of death is accident.” Boogaard’s family released a statement Friday acknowledging that Boogaard was battling addiction at the time of his death and had played with pain for years. Oxycodone is a powerful painkiller that can be addictive. In a timerelease form, the drug is known as OxyContin. Mixing any form of oxycodone with alcohol can increase the danger of a bad reaction. Boogaard, a 28-year-

old enforcer, was found in his Minneapolis apartment by family members on May 13. “We are deeply saddened by this unimaginable loss, but we are grateful for the expres-

sion of support that has given us strength as we go through this tragic time,” the family said through a statement released through the N.H.L. players union.

School board, budget committee to meet Monday BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Monday's planned Conway School Board meeting with the budget committee has been moved to the Loynd Auditorium at Kennett High at 6:30 p.m. due to an expected large citizen turnout. There may be a lot of folks in attendance but there will be no public comment period during the discussion between the two groups on the 201112 budget. "The thrust of the evening is for the two boards to have a conversation, that's the objective at this point," school superintendent Carl Nelson said by phone Thursday. "We moved to the auditorium (from the professional development center at Kennett Middle School) because I was afraid we'd have a number of people want to attend and not have enough room at the middle school." The school board has scheduled a special meeting for Aug. 16 in hopes of restoring $1.4 million that the state has ordered cut from the budget. The New Hampshire Attorney General and New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration determined last week that the budget approved by voters in April was subject to a so-called 10 percent rule, which limits to 10 percent the amount voters can add or deduct from the budget. The school board this year proposed an operating budget of nearly $33.3 million. The budget committee recommended an 11 percent cut, and voters at the deliberative session of school meeting put the 11 percent back into the budget. Then in ballot voting in April, they rejected that budget in favor of a "default" budget, which was even higher. Now with the scheduling of a special meeting, the process begins again.

The school board must go through the budget process from the beginning, setting a budget figure that would then go to the budget committee for review. The budget committee would then set a figure of its own followed by a public hearing, and then the deliberative portion of school meeting would be held before the budget goes to a final vote. The school board would also need to set a default, or fall-back, budget. The default budget should stay the same for the Aug. 16 vote as it was April 12 — $33,275,846 — $190,473 more than what was being proposed by the school board. Dave Sordi, chair of the budget committee, spent Tuesday preparing information packets for his 16 colleagues in order to prepare for Monday. He hopes the school board will be able to bring a new recommended budget figure to the budget committee when its scheduled to meet again June 15. "They'll have it long before then," Nelson said. "My hope is that June 15 will be when they hold their public hearing. I'd like to see the deliberative meeting early July." The New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration sent a letter, one page in length, from Jeanne Samms, the municipal accounts advisor, May 11 and it stated the 10 percent rule applies to the default budget. The letter from the DRA states: "We are disallowing an appropriation amount of $449,950 from warrant articles 14-9 and an additional $1,019,746 from warrant article 5." Voters cannot add or deduct more than 10 percent from the budget at the deliberative meeting. This year, voters reinstated an 11 percent cut that had been proposed by the budget committee, and then in ballot voting several weeks later adopted a "default" budget that was even higher.

Man challenges proposed sobriety checkpoint BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — A Carroll County man is questioning authorities about the constitutionality of sobriety checkpoints. But local police chiefs say that question has been settled. The topic came up at Wednesday's county commission meeting when Ed Comeau, of Brookfield, asked commissioners whether they considered the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution when they signed off on some paperwork for a state grant to fund the sheriff's office involvement in an upcoming sobriety checkpoint. "When you were sworn in as commissioners, did you swear an oath the the constitution?" said Comeau. "The Fourth Amendment states you need probable cause in order to pull someone over if they haven't done a crime. Was that taken into consideration?" Comeau films county commission meetings for his website, Commission chairman David Sorensen replied that commissioners do swear to to protect the constitution. However, Sorensen also admitted that he hadn't thought about the Fourth Amendment. Sorensen had no comment on whether or not the checkpoint would be constitutional. "What you should be doing is talking with the sheriff," Sorensen replied. "It's his grant, it's his project, he's responsible for it. All we did is sign the grant."

The commissioners were accepting a $609 grant from the New Hampshire Highway Safety Agency. The checkpoint would fund one checkpoint with two deputies for six hours. After the commission meeting, Comeau and The Conway Daily Sun went to the sheriff''s office seeking comment. The sheriff's office referred questions to the Wakefield Police Department, which is the lead agency for the checkpoint. Wakefield Police chief Ken Fifield explained that his agency has also applied for a state grant for a sobriety checkpoints. "It's grant money designed to curb the amount of statewide and nationwide fatalities," said Fifield. This year's sobriety checkpoint will be the third that Wakefield Police Department has conducted. At last year's checkpoint in Wakefield, law enforcement made 309 stops. That number includes "chase car stops" meaning cars that turned around before entering the checkpoint that could be lawfully pulled over for various reasons (such as a broken tail light). In total seven arrests were made in Wakefield. Three were drug related, two were for alcohol transportation, one was for driving while intoxicated, and one was for operation after suspension. Law enforcement officials conducted a total of 18 field sobriety tests. By law, the checkpoint will be advertised closer to the time it will occur. However the exact time and location see next page

of the checkpoint will remain under wraps. Disclosing too much information would defeat the point, said Fifield. Vehicles will be pulled over at random. In order to conduct a checkpoint, police must get approval from a Superior Court judge. Right now Wakefield police are in the process of writing the application to seek approval from the Superior Court. The application to the court includes a detailed accounting of the purpose of the checkpoint, how long the checkpoint will be conducted, how long each stop can last, how the vehicles will be pulled over, and what the officer will do when he or she has someone pulled over, said Fifield. "This is very much the same as a warrant for a search or an arrest because it's done with cause and court approval not just the whim of an executive who says go stop cars on Route 16 and let's see what we get," said Fifield. "It's not what I think, it's what the courts have already determined." During a stop, an officer has several responsibilities, said Fifield. Those include: informing the motorist of the checkpoint, identifying the motorist, and checking license and registration. The person is let go within three minutes if there's no problem. Police will not be looking for broken headlights and overdue inspections. "I'm still trying to get over the Fourth Amendment issue of where is the probable cause," Comeau replied. "Where is the suspicion." But Fifield said the standard isn't probable cause, it's actually "reasonable and articulable suspicion." Officers need that standard to make a stop. Officers need to meet the higher standard of "probable cause" to make an arrest or do a search warrant. Fifield stressed that

up to

the checkpoints are legal because they have gotten permission from a judge. The checkpoints are an effective means to reduce fatalities when done in conjunction with regular patrols, said Field comparing the combination to diet and exercise for the purpose of losing weight. Conway Police Department is also in the process of seeking a sobriety checkpoint grant. Conway police have done checkpoints for the last three or four years, said chief Ed Wagner. Last year, four people were charged with crimes ranging from driving while intoxicated to possession of drugs during a sobriety checkpoint. Last year's checkpoint in Conway was held on Route 16 near Red Barn Outlets during a Saturday night in September from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. In that time, officers stopped 485 vehicles, with most stops lasting less than a minute. All told, seven people were asked to conduct a field sobriety test, and five people passed, according to a Conway police press release. Comeau also asked the Wakefield police chief if Comeau would be allowed to video tape the sobriety checkpoint. Comeau said it's important for the public to keep an eye on government. Some New Hampshire Police departments have a problem with people video taping, such as Weare Police, which charged a woman with felony wiretapping for video taping a traffic stop. That charge has been dropped, according to the Union Leader. But Fifield didn't have a problem with people video taping police actions so long as they aren't interfering with the officer or filming something that is confidential such as a closed investigation. Wakefield police cruisers are equipped with video and audio recorders. Jerry O'Connor filmed last year's sobriety checkpoint in Wakefield.

Appareagles” on Little Loon Island. There is ently here is perfect lowland habitat

for this beautiful and unmistakable adult male with his distinctive black cap, collar, throat, and upper breast encircling the bright yellow forehead and sides of head exactly like a hood. The females usually show only a darker crown with an indistinct necklace around the lower part of the neck, but some may have a black crown and hood markings almost as dark as a male's. She is olive green above like him, without any wing bars, but with yellow below and on the forehead and face. She resembles a female Wilson’s warbler, which is a regular migrant here while these two are not. Among the most noticeable field marks are the bird’s white outer tail feathers—hooded warblers are well known for their habit of flicking or fanning that tail. The birding books say this hooded warbler species never breeds north of Connecticut and Rhode Island in New England. Their range is more southerly throughout the East in woodland thickets. Before this, the last hooded warbler was seen here in 1974 on Squam Lake’s Hoag Island, which is nearby and just across the channel from Five Finger. The bird always needs dense undergrowth below mature deciduous woodland canopies, possibly featuring mountain laurel. This low swampy area appearing at the bottom of this rich, watered hillside

is exactly what the warbler needs for reproductive habitat. I had no idea that this portion near the trail juncture was so perfect for this handsome hooded warbler to be discovered by experts. Made me proud of my natural area, it did, as they also need relatively large, unbroken tracts of deciduous woodland. While male hooded warblers catch flying insects, the females hunt closer to the ground in undergrowth. Their major foods are grasshoppers, locusts, caterpillars, plant lice, wasps, ants, moths, beetles, and bugs such as caddis flies. The hooded warbler’s nest is a tidy compact cup of dead leaves, bark strips, and plant down. It is lined with black rootlets, soft grasses, and plant fibers, commonly located 1-6 feet above ground or over water in a sapling or shrub. The female incubates the smooth, creamy white, blotched and dotted eggs for a dozen days. The young leave the nest about 9 days after hatching. Overwintering is in the neo-tropics.

Trails ready for transformation It won't be long before a handful of valley ski areas open select trails to mountain bikers. Downhill mountain bikers, those wanting to use the chairlift, have two local resorts for that. In Pinkham Notch, Great Glen Trails—home to the 16th annual 24 Hours of Great Glen Aug. 13-14 and summer mountain bike series that rolls Tuesday afternoons from July 5 to Aug. 23—has $8 daily trail fees. Mountain bikes can be rented as well as children friendly trail-a-bikes and parent-powered trailers. "As we do each summer, we have upgraded our fleet of mountain bikes with new Cannondale Comfort bikes and new Kona bikes for kids," said GGT's Ryan Triffitt. The valley's western edge seems to be where chairlifts will be running for downhill mountain biking with service at Attitash and through Crawford Notch in Bretton Woods. Attitash (opening weekends Memorial Day through June 11) plans to run the Flying Yankee to access advanced terrain for mountain bikers that includes some sweet singletrack. The more mellow stuff is on the other side of Route 302 along the Saco River. There are about 12 miles of moderate riding in the Thorne Pond Trail network. A daily lift ticket is $45 ($15 for one ride) for the downhillers while those wanting the non-extreme stuff have a $5 trail pass. Mountain bikes can be rented, and there are full suspension rigs available too. "We do have two different season pass options," said Nate Waterhouse at Attitash. One is all-inclusive for $175 that including all of the attractions (including lift-access) but

Biking –––––

Marty Basch excludes horseback riding. Then there is a $99 pass for attractions including lift-access but doesn't include horseback riding or the mountain coaster. The pro-am Eastern States Cup Series is slated for June 18-19 while the Wednesday 6-week , single run Pin the Trail Series is scheduled for July 13-Aug. 17. "Pin the Trail is returning this year," said Waterhouse. "We had a great response to it and feel that is a good way to get people interested in racing and going out to other events." Bretton Woods has a mountain bike season pass that accesses both lift-service terrain and its valley trail network. It's $99 with no black-out dates. Downhillers will use the Bethlehem Express High Speed Quad to get to advanced terrain. For those who don't a lift, there's singletrack and carriage roads to be ridden with Presidential Range vistas. Bretton Woods over 60 miles of terrain for riding between the Valley—Nordic area—and the mountain (alpine area), according to BW's Craig Clemmer. Downhill trail passes cost $15 (adult) and $12 (juniors) for two hours, $20 (adult) and $16 (juniors) for four hours, and $28 (adults) and $18 (juniors) for all day. Trail passes (nonlift served) cost $8 (adult) and $6 (juniors) for two hours, $10 (adult) and $8 (juniors) for four hours, and $12 (adults) and $10 (juniors) for all day. Mountain bike rentals include full suspension rigs and the Diggler mountain scooter. •••

Saturday's Crank the Kanc time trial is a sell-out once again. Presented by the Mount Washington Valley Velo Club, the 21-mile ride takes cyclists up the Kancamagus Highway. There's $1250 in prize money up for grabs with $250 going to the fastest male and female. Portions of roads in New Hampshire and Maine have been approved as a new bicycle route by the American Association of Highway and Transportation Officials and the Adventure Cycling Association. Maine's DOT worked with local cyclists to develop U.S. Bike Route 1 from Calais to Portsmouth. Maine's USBR 1 begins on an historic bridge just upriver from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. The route follows low-traffic roads connecting many of Maine's major towns and cities. In Portland, the route follows the Eastern Promontory shore with views of the many islands in Casco Bay. Farther north, USBR 1 follows sections of the state's three major rivers with historic forts and many mills. In Bangor, the route passes by the large statue of Paul Bunyan, a testament to the region's forest products industry along the mighty Penobscot River. After passing Acadia National Park, USBR 1 continues northeast along the less visited and less-developed Downeast coast en-route to the border crossing into New Brunswick. USBR 1 and the coastal alternate are also segments of the East Coast Greenway. Maine’s route connects to New Hampshire's and the Seacoast Greenway. The Greenway has been established in New Hampshire for a number of years and is also used as the East Coast Greenway.

Arts in Motion Theater Company takes on “The Miracle Worker,” the inspirational story of Helen Keller, a deaf and blind girl, who, thanks to her live-in tutor, Anne Sullivan, overcomes her handicap in a time when no one thought it was possible. “The Miracle Worker,” which opened last night at the Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse and is running Thursday through Sunday this weekend and next, focuses on the initial struggle of Sullivan (Julie Lanoie) to get through to the young, undisciplined Helen (Megan Perrin). While “The Miracle Worker” is a cherished piece of theater, this probably has more to do the sheer power of the story than the play itself, which suffers from an uneven script by William Gibson. The first act is clunky, trite, heavy handed and allows for little subtlety. As is the case with many plays, the first act is all mechanism, setting up the drama of the second act. The first act ends with a very funny scene in which Sullivan attempts to teach the unruly Helen table manners. It nicely sets up the second act, which shifts Helen away from her parents (Julianne Brosnan and Craig Holden) to one-on-one tutoring with Sullivan. The second act is where the true drama of the story lies and what audiences respond to and remember most. The strength of these scenes more than compensates for the flaws of the first act and builds to a conclusion that is difficult not to be moved by. The above criticisms are addressed at the play itself, not this production, which is very fine indeed. They are limited by the material in that first act, but then this would hold true of any production. Even the original New York Times review of the play in 1959 noted that elements of the show were “at times clumsy.” This is a well-cast production with a assured direction by Barbara Spofford and a fantastic set by Deborah Jasien that recreates the 19th-century Keller estate. Spofford and lighting designer


Joshua Adams make some interesting lighting choices in the second act that make a lasting impression. When Helen and Sullivan have shifted to the garden house for private lessons, a spotlight is used to direct attention to events either in the garden house or main house. It is an effective bit of directing. Lanoie, in spite of a come-and-go Irish accent, is very good as Sullivan, a strong-willed woman who fights for her beliefs and ideals. Lanoie is able to bring across that passion, but also portrays Sullivan's fears of failing Helen. It is a delicate balance between self-assuredness and insecurity that Lanoie handles well. Perrin has a challenging role as Helen. Not only must she play blind, but, with the exception of grunts, yelling and crying, it is also a largely silent performance. It is kind of performance that could become laughable, but Perrin is convincing. While many in the family assume she isn't smart, Helen isn't stupid. Perrin is able to get that across in such scenes as when she has a mischievous grin after locking Sullivan in her room. Holden as the aging southern father with a fondness for talking about the Civil War is quite good. He has a commanding stage presence, perhaps too much so at times. There are moments when it appears he confusions shouting with acting. On the other hand, there is a tender, soft spoken scene in which, after much contention, he praises Sullivan's work. Brosnan is also solid as the loving, compassionate mother who refuses to believe Helen is a locked chest that can never be opened. She brings a genuine, motherly sense of warmth to her performance. This is a well-mounted and acted piece of theater that honors Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan. Reserve seating online at or by calling the box office at 356-5776 or purchase tickets at the door.

dissipated, and my cold was almost gone. I decided to head up the Kancmangus Highway and hike into Champney Falls. The tunnel of pastel spring leaves on the highway reinforced how special the time of year was. At the Champney Falls Trail parking lot, there was one car there before me. I walked into the wet forest, crossed a log bridge over a fast stream, and headed up the trail. It was a great walk. Streamlets cascaded down hillsides, across the

trail at my feet, and continued down to Champney Brook, to my right. The color of the spring leaves was enhanced by the cloudy wet day. I passed a couple in street clothes who seemed like Zen children in the woods, stopping and snapping pictures every few feet. He looked like a Russian spy in his long fur lined coat, she looked like an urban peasant in a bandanna. They flashed smiles as I walked past. There was no need for words. see next page

Third annual Inn to Inn spring herb tour June 4 and 5

MOUNT WASHINGTON VALLEY — Join 10 premier White Mountains inns for the third annual Inn to Inn spring herb tour from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both June 4 and June 5 as they present an in-depth look at a popular culinary herb at each inn. Tour goers will take home trivia, historical facts, recipes and ideas for growing the seedlings you receive from each inn, just in time for the spring planting season. It’s a virtual herb garden and a fun, educational getaway combined with stays at award-winning inns. Each inn will focus on one herb

and offer delicious samples of one or more special recipes using the herb from their own kitchen garden. In the past, tour goers have grazed from inn to inn enjoying tastes of tomato basil soup, carrot-chervil dip, sage biscuits, tarragon egg salad, and rosemary chocolate cookies. This year’s tour will feature a whole new menu of wonderful herb-inspired tastings. Participants will go home with a folder of new recipes, interesting herbal lore and pots of herbs or seeds to grow your own. Six Northern inns (Jackson to North Conway) will be open on Saturday, June 4

I turned left onto the falls loop, and enjoyed the steep waterfalls on the brook below. Almost at Champney Falls, I cut down to the stream and crossed on stones and limbs, and then approached the roaring Pitcher Falls. It was too wet to get too close to it. Amazingly, I didn’t get wet feet as I later crossed the stream back to the trail. I headed down the trail, and soon passed the crazy couple, pointing their camera like a ray gun to kill or capture beauty. I walked down the trail. It was good, yet familiar. I hadn’t entered nirvana by taking a hike. I had brought all my baggage with me. I wasn’t going to take flight. Until, just before the log bridge over the stream near the parking lot, I let my mind embrace all of life. Then everything grew larger, and a little less in focus. I imagined faces in trees, and trees in faces. The world was much larger that a beautiful path in the forest, yet at the same time, was contained in a drop of water on a beech leaf on the trail side.

Time to get outside and get fit!

First ever Kindness Weekend planned for May 27-30 Following the lead of The Kindness Center, Mount Washington Valley is out to become the Kindness Capital of New England as random acts of kindness and community sharing will highlight the lives of visitors and residents alike, during the first Kindness Weekend, May 27-30. The weekend begins with an inspiring lecture by Michael J. Chase, author, lecturer, founder of The Kindness Center, and also referred to as “The Kindness Guy.” Events throughout the weekend will include kindness story sharing, tools to provide random acts of kindness, free massages, arts and crafts, an uplifting concert and a “Be Kind to the Earth” walk. A complete list of Kindness Weekend events is found at “While the Mount Washington Valley is filled with family, outdoor and adventure attractions, during Memorial Day weekend kindness will be the primary attraction in this vacation destination,” said Janice Crawford, executive director of the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. “Disney has magic, we have kindness.” “For us to have our whole community to come together to commit random acts of kindness and help promote kindness as a tourist attraction offers a unique and important message,” said Michael

Kline, owner of the Framed Art Superstore, Kline Seminars and Soyfire Candle, and event organizer. The events of the weekend are mostly free to the public. Three hundred free tickets are available for the Kindness Weekend kick-off lecture on Friday night, May 27, at Theater in the Woods in Intervale, where Michael J. Chase will instill the spirit of kindness in all who attend. Tickets may be picked up at Soyfire Candles or The Met Coffeehouse in North Conway. Kindness Weekend has been made possible by sponsors including the North Conway Village Association, a committee of the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce.

“You Are Welcome!”


by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams


By Holiday Mathis want what you want. Go toward it without feeling selfish or guilty. Don’t worry -- it won’t be too easy for you to attain this goal, and you’ll be helping others along the way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your sign’s symbol is a centaur -- halfhorse, half-human. Now is a good time to channel the horse side. You’ll need to be fast and strong and wear blinders to keep yourself focused on the track. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You suspect that someone likes you for your feisty ambition, though you don’t have to go out of your way to display this now. Really, it’s forgiveness and compassion that are your most alluring qualities. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be in a position to choose your company, so avoid the one who likes to get you all riled up. This person can cause you to spin in circles like a dog chasing its own tail. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are responsible and orderly to a point, and then it’s time to hit the release valve and blow off some steam. This can be accomplished through wild dancing, shouting at the game on television or escaping into a good movie. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 21). Your curiosity about the world will never be sated. You’ll get answers and ask deeper questions in June. July brings the end of a particular yearning, and new confidence comes over you. You’ll be awarded money in August. A colleague will support and guide you in work that uses your talents and lets you shine. Libra and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 24, 49, 1, 32 and 34.

Cul de Sac

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A compliment is a gift, not a purchase. When someone compliments you, graciously accept the kind words without worrying about how and when you can repay them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t have to be overly concerned with being good to do the right thing. Free yourself from negative thoughts and energy for the simple reason that it’s too much work to carry them around with you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll make a friend by doing something other than the usual. Your originality is adorable. You’re a lot of fun, and then you make yourself scarce -- irresistible. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are not a blank slate for someone else to write on. Contribute to a conversation. Talk about what you know. Otherwise, you’re likely to be bossed around by the more overbearing people in your midst. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your domestic environment reflects where you are in life right now -- a good reason to tidy and organize it, making it beautiful and welcoming whether or not you are expecting company. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re not motivated by easy targets. If anyone and everyone can join the club, it’s not special. The harder you have to work for it the more you want it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have a gift for healing, as well as teaching. You feel compelled to be of service to others, and your attention will help them achieve a state of optimum health and well-being. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You

Yesterday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 21, 2011— Page 33

Today is Saturday, May 21, the 141st day of 2011. There are 224 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 21, 1911, during the Mexican Revolution, the Treaty of Ciudad Juarez was signed by President Porfirio Diaz and revolutionary leader Francisco I. Madero; under the agreement, Diaz resigned his office, and ended up living the rest of his life in exile in France. On this date: In 1471, King Henry VI of England died in the Tower of London at age 49. In 1542, Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto died while searching for gold along the Mississippi River. In 1881, Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross. In 1892, the opera “Pagliacci,” by Ruggero Leoncavallo, was first performed, in Milan, Italy. In 1927, Charles A. Lindbergh landed his Spirit of St. Louis near Paris, completing the first solo airplane flight across the Atlantic Ocean in 33½ hours. In 1932, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean as she landed in Northern Ireland, about 15 hours after leaving Newfoundland. In 1941, a German U-boat sank the American merchant steamship SS Robin Moor in the South Atlantic after allowing the ship’s passengers and crew to board lifeboats. In 1956, the United States exploded the first airborne hydrogen bomb over Bikini Atoll in the Pacific. In 1972, Michelangelo’s Pieta, on display at the Vatican, was damaged with a hammer by an apparently deranged man who shouted he was Jesus Christ. In 1991, former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated during national elections by a suicide bomber. One year ago: President Barack Obama directed the government to set the first-ever mileage and pollution limits for big trucks and to tighten rules for future cars and SUVs. Citing overwhelming evidence that North Korea sank a South Korean warship, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton warned the reclusive communist state of consequences. Today’s Birthdays: Rhythm-and-blues singer Ron Isley (The Isley Brothers) is 70. Rock musician Hilton Valentine (The Animals) is 68. Actor Richard Hatch (“Battlestar Galactica”) is 66. Musician Bill Champlin is 64. Singer Leo Sayer is 63. Actress Carol Potter is 63. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) is 60. Actor Mr. T is 59. Music producer Stan Lynch is 56. Actor Judge Reinhold is 54. Actordirector Nick Cassavetes is 52. Actor Brent Briscoe is 50. Actress Lisa Edelstein is 45. Actress Fairuza Balk is 37. Rapper Havoc (Mobb Deep) is 37. Actress Ashlie Brillault is 24. Actor Scott Leavenworth is 21.

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend and I will be attending a milestone birthday party for a friend of his. The fiancee of the birthday guy stated on the invitation, “There will be a surprise during the evening.” It has been suggested that a stripper “may” be the surprise. Abby, I realize this might be OK for some people and it’s just for fun, but I’d be uncomfortable if this happens. My boyfriend knows my feelings, but I don’t know if we would risk being ridiculed if we left the party. What should I do if I find myself in this situation? -- HATE TO BE A PARTY-POOPER DEAR “PARTY-POOPER”: Contact the birthday guy’s fiancee and ask if what you heard is true. If it is, spare yourself the embarrassment and have your boyfriend attend the party without you. DEAR ABBY: When someone has a serious illness or major surgery, everyone thinks to bring food, which is lovely. But I have a better idea. When my friend, who has a young family, was diagnosed with breast cancer, I offered to do her laundry. Her recovery was slow, and the chemo and radiation therapies endless. Three years later, we’re nearing the end of a short and brave life, and I still do their laundry every week. It has been a help to her, and I have grown closer to her and her family. When she’s gone, I will never again do a load of wash without thinking of her. Perhaps your readers can help another family this way. -THE LAUNDRY FAIRY, ROCHESTER, MINN. DEAR LAUNDRY FAIRY: The support you have given to that family extends far beyond doing laundry. Your presence

over the long haul has, I’m sure, meant much more. Read on for a view from the perspective of a caregiver: DEAR ABBY: My wife has dementia. Our children don’t live close by, so I’m her only caregiver. One afternoon a week I hire someone to stay with her so I can grocery shop, do banking and run necessary errands. Neighbors and friends over the years have offered the standard, “If I can do anything to help, let me know,” but I’m not the type to call and ask, although it would be wonderful to have more hours to myself to do things in a leisurely manner rather than like running a marathon. I know people are busy, but it would be great if some of those who offered help would call occasionally, tell me they have an afternoon or evening free (or even an hour or two) and give me a little breathing room. I don’t begrudge one moment of the time I have spent caring for my wife. She has, for 50 years, been a marvelous wife, a wonderful mother and the center of our family. Whatever I do for her can never repay the comfort, strength and joy she has brought into my life. But I cried (privately) on Christmas Day after the family had finished our gift exchange, because I had no time to go and buy her a gift. Please advise your readers that if the offer of help they extend is real, to please check their schedules, find some time they are willing to give, CALL that friend, neighbor or relative and offer to sit with their loved one. That thoughtful gesture will be appreciated beyond what they could possibly ever imagine. -- A FRIEND OF YOURS

A White Mountain Moment

Tiffany Benna

Remember, only you can prevent bear problems

Pulling out tents and sleeping bags, backpacks and coolers (despite the last few days of pouring rain), I know I join millions of people getting ready for camping season. With Memorial Day weekend upon us and the White Mountain National Forest campgrounds open, it seems like a good time to talk about black bears. The truth is we’ve been having a lot of discussions about black bears lately. Internally, here at the Forest Service, as well as with N.H. Fish and Game and other partners. It seems the number of bears is growing and a lot of people continue to visit the Forest (like 6 million a year). Put together, this means encounters may become more frequent. We’ve been talking about events and behaviors that occurred last year and what we can do to prevent negative encounters this year. You’ll see some new stuff from all of us and you’ll hear lots of people talking about black bears. But in the end, what really determines the increase in encounters and the kind of encounters between people and bears is up to you — the camper, hiker, homeowner, business person. (Wow, did you see that one coming?) Wild bears have a natural fear of humans and will attempt to avoid people and developed areas — no, no, it’s true, they will. But a fed bear — a bear that has successfully gotten food (bird seed, garbage, pet food, picnic condiments, or sandwiches) — that bear

will abandon natural foods and go for the “easy” food. That bear may approach people, wander through campgrounds, hang out by roads or trails, or return to dumpsters. That bear has become a problem bear. But make no mistake, that bear is a not a tame bear, it’s not a trained bear, it’s not a cute and cuddly teddy bear. It’s still a wild animal, and a reach for a piece of food or left out cooler comes with 1.5 inch long front claws. You’ve heard the saying, “A Fed Bear is a Dead Bear,” you’ve heard the warnings, “Don’t Feed Bears!” you’ve been learning “to live with bears.” And lots of people really listen to these messages and change their behavior, whether getting bear-proof dumpsters or securing garbage in enclosed buildings, or keeping a clean camp, putting food away, packing coolers up and down from campsites to secure them in a closed vehicle, or if doing some backcountry camping using bear-proof canisters. But the truth is, some people don’t know, or maybe don’t care. Perhaps they’ve never encountered a bear while camping or hiking. Perhaps they aren’t convinced they are in bear country. It’s hard to say why people leave food out in their campsites. And even harder to understand why someone would reach out with their hands and actually offer food to a bear — a bear! When I see those pictures of bears climbing trees to see BEARS page 40

Page 40 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 21, 2011

BEARS from page 39

grab bird feeders, or eating an apple out of someone’s hand, or a cub coming close to take a sandwich, I don’t see a “cool” pic. I see a soon to be tagged bear, and a soon to be dead bear. Because at that point, when the bear has been successful, where some of that natural fear has worn off, it’s just too late. Too late for me to say “Don’t feed bears,” and too late for the bear. It’s a horrible place to be — that space of knowing it’s just too late, when people’s behavior have affected the safety not only of themselves, and the campers and recreators coming behind them, but also the safety of the bear. A bear will keep coming back to the site of success. That means when your family leaves, another family may bear (no play on words here) the burden of a food habituated bear. And now a decision has to be made — a careful, hard, and gut wrenching decision. But, here we are now at the beginning of the camping season. It’s the perfect time to make sure everybody knows and cares that we are indeed in bear country. You need to come prepared for bears and make sure you read signs at trailheads and campgrounds with bear messages. I know, for some, seeing a black is almost a magical moment, a moment to take in the awe of beauty, a moment of reverence and respect for nature. For others, the thought may not be so comforting. While some will never see a bear, knowing what to do and what to bring helps everyone feel more comfortable. So what do you do when you encounter a bear? Well, it depends. If you are hiking and encounter a bear, stop. You can raise your hands and say “whoa bear, whoa” and slowly walk away. Remove yourself from the situation. If you stop for a picnic lunch out of your backpack, keep it right next to you and don’t walk away from it. Just those few moments away are enough for a bear to successfully steal your pack. If you’re camping and a bear wanders into your site, stop and slowly back away. Remove yourself from the situation. If car camping, you might even slip

into your car until the bear moves on. Always report encounters to your campground hosts or to backcountry rangers. That information helps us know where bears are, if they’ve gotten food or not, and gives us that information to pass along to our visitors who then in turn can make informed decisions about their hike or stay. Whether hiking or camping, in campgrounds from vehicles or in the backcountry, if you encounter a bear, it’s a good time to stop and think, “Are you prepared to be in bear country?” Can you secure your food overnight? This means keeping a clean camp, putting food away and coolers in secure vehicles, or having a bear-proof canister or equipment and experience to do a proper bear hang. If you are prepared and feel comfortable, you may decide to keep your itinerary. However, if you aren’t prepared, perhaps it’s time to rethink your plans. Never keep food or toiletries in your tent. People think about candy bars or granola bars snuck in their tents for midnight snack – but often forget other smelly items that might attract a bear. Yup, even toothpaste and soap smell good to a bear (remember they’ll crawl into a dumpster). Make sure all smelly items (don’t forget about those clothes you cooked in) are removed from your tent and secured in a vehicle, bear hang, or bear-proof canister (still placed 100 feet from your sleeping area). Let’s start the season right. The best thing we all can do, for the bear, for ourselves and for each other, is to be careful with how we store our food — whether we’re in the White Mountain National Forest, visiting a State Park, or at home. Together we can change our behavior, or influence the behavior of our guests or even neighbors — and therefore not change the behaviors of bears. We can help keep black bears wild, know what to do if we encounter a moment with those majestic animals, and have a safe summer season.

Annual geranium, bake, yard sale at Lord’s Hill Meeting House May 28

Report from Town Office: The selectmen are enlisting the services of a construction firm to keep an eye on the proposed and planned rebuilding of the first mile of Town House Road from Route 153. Few people showed up at the library to speak with Chief Burbank about either fire safety or general questions about the department. Your reporter’s attendance at various selectmen’s meetings has revealed much work accomplished in the restructuring of this town department. Thanks to the chief for his thoroughness and to the volunteers participating in making Effingham Fire and Rescue worthy of our pride. South Effingham: The annual meeting of the South Effingham and West Parsonsfield Citizens Organization takes place May 25 at 7 p.m. in the South Effingham Church. Plans for continuing restoration of the building and fund-raising programs will be discussed. For those interested please try to attend. Center Effingham: Lord’s Hill Meeting House Association holds its annual geranium, bake, and yard sale at the Lord’s Hill Meeting House May 28 from 9 a.m. till 2 p.m. This will be one big yard sale. The provided list of items on hand is too long to present here, but it can be reported that if you have any empty floor space in your house, barn, garage or basement, just begging for something to occupy it you can attend to this need by stopping by. You can eat while you shop too, choosing from a wide array of fresh baked goods. Potted geraniums? You want potted geraniums, well one more time, this is the place. Admission is free and all proceeds will help maintain the Meeting House. See you there. Effingham Falls — Or is it West Effingham?: — anyway the Davis Meeting House and Cemetery Association will hold its second annual clean up this Saturday, May 21 from 9 a.m. until done. A relatively new group, the association has taken on the job of restoration, maintenance and inclusion in local life of this historic building.

No easy feat, revealing a new piece of local history to Mr. P. It is left to the curious reader to go to the library and discover this tidbit of information: but, can be revealed it entails a certain display of dynamic precocity in the young scholar Mr. Potter.

Children's museum adds dinosaur exhibit

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 21, 2011— Page 43


CONWAY — Rebecca Kaplan visited the Mount Washington Valley Children’s Museum about a year ago, simply to learn and play with her children. Being an artist, the first thing she noticed was that while there was plenty of interactive and colorful things going on in each room, there wasn’t any artwork on the walls. Today she is the museum’s resident muralist, and has covered numerous walls in beautiful artwork. Her latest piece is a huge dinosaur mural. The scenic piece stretches across an entire room, incorporating many different kinds of dinosaurs and environments. One long-necked dino is pictured eating leaves, another showing its teeth, while another flies in the sky, each tying in a different piece of the learning puzzle. Up above, hanging from the ceiling, are 65 Pteranodon mobiles, representing the 65 million years that dinosaurs have been extinct. The museum hopes to someday move beyond just 65, and make 65 million actually tangible for the children who visit the exhibit. And that’s not all. In the next few weeks a “Dinosaur Walk” will be added to the room, using imprints of a dinosaur's foot to create a path for children to walk on. The children’s museum’s executive director Shelly Morin is excited about the newest exhibit. The museum has quadrupled in size since 2010, Morin points out. After the Believe in Books Foundation moved its offices, the children’s museum acquired a lot of space to expand. The museum has added numerous exhibits and murals, and there seems to be no end of growth in sight. Where there used to be offices and meeting rooms, now there are castles, stages, tree houses and fish. By 2012, Morin expects the museum to be seven times its original size.

People donate their time and their talents, too," Morin said. Just like Rebecca Kaplan, whose time and talent has created a beautiful piece of artwork and education for the museum. The museum ties in aspects of science, history, art and even geology with the addition of a “Rock Box,” representing the organization's holistic approach to learning.

Morin believes will make learning easy and fun for the museum's young audience. Some members and visitors have asked: Why dinosaurs? “Dinosaurs get people excited,” Morin answers happily, “People want to learn about them. People are curious. It is interesting to find out that at some point, the world didn’t revolve around us.” The children’s museum is open Thursday through Monday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum is celebrating its fifth birthday next month, June 24, and this event will also mark the kickoff to summer.

Harold and Dolores Leavitt have been visiting from Florida. They saw family in Massachusetts and then went to Manchester where they visited with Harold’s sons James, John and Jerry. They also spent time with Arthur and Mary and visited with other friends before returning to Manchester and flying back to Florida. It was a very busy trip. Commandant Arnold Patrignani of VFW Post 11557, together with Richard Wales, placed flags at the five Albany cemeteries and at the town hall in front of the chapel in preparation for Memorial Day next week. Sandy Stowell reports a young bear has been living on her property and feeding on a tree there. She was wondering where the bear’s mother might be since it appears to be alone and yet very young. While we spoke, the bear was balancing itself on a branch several feet in the air. She said the bear never comes near the house and if she gets close it will run away. Anyone else experiencing similar sightings? Don’t know about you, but I’m rained out. Here’s hoping for some bright sunshine for the rest of the week. Have a great one.

On Wednesday, Rep. Frank Guinta held a town hall meeting at Conway Elementary School. It was covered in The Conway Daily Sun. The only people that I saw from Albany at that meeting besides my husband, Stan, were Jack and Camille Rose. The eighth grade students at Kennett Middle School traveled to Washington this past week. If you know a student who went on that trip, ask him/her how it went. Gabrielle Croto of Albany has been named to the National Honor Roll for Music Theory. A student of Becky Verplanck’s Pianoforte in Chocorua, Gabrielle took part in their annual evaluations playing for an adjudicator and taking the Keynote Independent Theory Test (KITS). Students who score 90 percent or better are named to the New Hampshire Music Teachers Association Honor Roll as well as the KITS National Honor Roll. N.H. Public Service should have completed its work in Wildwood by this time. Let’s hope that the people in that development are now receiving the services they deserve.

A family affair: Moving with pets BY LINDSEY MAIHOS While moving to a new home is very exciting, relocating can be a stressful process for every member of the family – including pets. More often than not, a move means that all familiarity is gone. From where to hide a bone to where to nap in the sun, the pet’s sense of security and comfort has suddenly been altered. Below are five suggestions from for how to make moving a little less “ruff” for fourlegged members of the family. Plan ahead. From start to finish, moving to a new home involves a lot of planning. Pet parents should decide as soon as possible where their pet’s belongings – toys, water dishes, etc., — will go in the new home. If the pet’s only car ride has been to the veterinarian, pet parents should get him or her accustomed to traveling by bringing them along on visits to the future home, as well as to other places with a more positive association, like a dog park or pet store. Take them on a walk-through to get them acclimated. For home buyers with pets in tow, it is important to help their companions become acclimated to their new life early on. During a visit to the future home, pet parents should take their four-legged friend on a personal tour, showing them their new play area and “bathroom.” By scoping out all of the new scents and sights the pet will start to acquaint itself with their new digs. Cats may feel more comfortable exploring one room at a time so start in the bathroom, a smaller space, and let them take their time coming out of the carrier to explore. Get new pet tags. With doors opening and closing and people entering and exiting, pets will likely have more opportunities to get loose during a move than they did while living in the previous home. As soon as the contract is signed, home buyers should purchase a new tag with their pet’s name, new address and phone number. If the pet has a microchip, pet parents should also contact the company and have their pet’s ID information updated in their database. If a pet escaped during the move, it would be very difficult for them to find their way back to a home they barely know. Be extra security conscious. The first few days in a new home can spook even the most laidback pet. Pet parents should make sure their pet’s collar fits securely and, unless the backyard at the new home is securely fenced in, keep their pet on a leash when heading outdoors. Also, take a full inspection of the house looking for openings a pet can crawl into or other safety hazards before letting the animal explore. Once they are off their leash or out of their carrier, be sure to keep a close eye on them. Continue with business as usual. After moving into the new home, pet parents should try to stick to their pet’s daily routine as closely as possible by feeding them, playing with them and walking them at the same times they did while living in the previous home. Such consistency will enable pets to get used to their new life more quickly. Submitted by Lindsey Maihos, of Coldwell Banker Wright Realty in Conway. These tips were adapted from a chapter in “The Adopted Dog Bible,” written by Kim Saunders, vice president of shelter outreach for, the largest online database of adoptable pets.

Just in time for summer Today’s Home of the Week is a four-bedroom colonial-style home on an acre of land.

BARTLETT — Just in time for summer, this week’s home features a private and professionally-landscaped fenced backyard, an over-sized deck and an in-ground swimming pool. The home is a four-bedroom, three-bath colonial situated on an acre of land off Skyline Drive in Intervale. There is lustrous hardwood and tile flooring throughout the entire first floor. Floorto-ceiling windows abound in the formal living and dining rooms, letting in the natural light. A chef’s kitchen includes cherry cabinets, granite counters and highend stainless steel appliances. Interior square footage totals 2,596, but outdoors is where you’ll probably be spending most of your time in the warm months. “Relax on the over-sized sunny deck overlooking the pool with friends, children and pets in this desirable neighborhood in the heart of the White Mountains,” suggests listing agent Brendan Battenfelder, of Badger Realty in North Conway. Price is $419,000. An open house is scheduled for Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. Battenfelder can be reached at (603) 356-5757, Ext. 336, (603) 722-0359 or

Rising gas prices impacting where people choose to live PARSIPPANY, N.J. – The high cost of gasoline is not just emptying wallets; it is also impacting where consumers choose to buy a home. According to a new Coldwell Banker survey among its network of real estate professionals, 75 percent said that the recent spike in gas prices has influenced their clients’ decisions on where to live, and 93 percent said if gas prices continue to rise, more home buyers will choose to live somewhere that allows for a closer commute to their work. Even here in the Mount Washington Valley there are numerous signs that commuters from home to work are really feeling the impact of higher gas prices on their wallets. Prospective buyers are thinking twice about that 20- to 30-mile commute between home and work when they are in the home selection process, according to Karl Seibel of Coldwell Banker Wright Realty in Conway. Out of those who said gas prices affect where consumers want to live, being closer to work was the leading consideration. • Drive time and racking up miles en-route to the office caused 89 percent to say buyers look for homes closer to work. Forty-five (45) percent are seeing buyers choose homes closer to shops and services as a result of increasing gas prices.* Some buyers are skipping the commute altogether. • More than three quarters of the real estate professionals surveyed (77 percent) said more buyers today are interested in having a home office compared to five years ago, and 68 percent of those respondents said they believe the high cost of gas contributes to this new work from home trend. • Currently, there are more than 25,000 homes available on that include “office” as part of the listing description. “The decision to buy a home has always been tailored around the personal, multi-faceted lifestyle needs of

each buyer,” said Jim Gillespie, CEO of Coldwell Banker Real Estate. “Today, rising fuel costs and a person’s decision to commute or perhaps work remotely are additional factors of the decision home buyers must consider.” One trend continuing to rise in popularity, partly because of the gas price phenomenon, is the interest in urban living. • Fifty-six (56) percent of the real estate professionals surveyed said that they are seeing more home buyers interested in urban living compared to five years ago. •Of the subset that recognized this trend, 93 percent strongly agreed or agreed that one reason is an increased interest in shorter commutes. •Eighty-one (81) percent of these respondents also strongly agreed or agreed that the desire to reduce spending on gas is a factor. According to those who have seen an increased interest in urban living, other reasons behind this trend are: • Having everything at your fingertips (91 percent strongly agreed or agreed) • Being able to walk to places (76 percent strongly agreed or agreed) • Being near public transportation (52 percent strongly agreed or agreed) Methodology: Coldwell Banker Real Estate conducted an online survey among 1,188 Coldwell Banker real estate professionals across the United States about the impact of gas prices on home buying decisions and trends surrounding urban living. The survey was fielded between April 28 and May 3, 2011. * Some answer percentages in the above may not total 100 percent, if only the most popular responses are listed. In other cases, respondents had the option to check all that apply, which may mean that percentages total more than 100 percent.

Do you need flood insurance?

Floods are America's No. 1 natural disaster, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and have caused more loss of life and property than any other U.S. natural disaster over the past century. Even if you're not located in a designated flood zone, your property is still at risk of flooding, which can be caused by factors like excess rain, failed levees, hurricanes, and outdated or clogged drainage systems; in fact, FEMA reports that more than 25 percent of flood claims are made by property owners located outside of the floodplain. But flood damage is not covered by a standard homeowner's policy. Instead, it's provided through the National Flood Insurance Program, administered by FEMA. Today, more than 5.6 million property owners in 21,000 communities participate in the NFIP. While anyone in an NFIP-participating community may purchase flood insurance, it's required only if a property owner meets three criteria, says

Austin Perez, senior policy representative for environmental issues, National Association of Realtors: 1. The owner buys or owns property in a federally designated special flood hazard area. 2. The owner's community participates in the NFIP. 3. The home is or was purchased or refinanced with a loan from a federally regulated lender or backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. "Homeowners who aren't obligated but still want to buy flood insurance can contact their insurance company to see if they offer the standard flood insurance policy," says Franklin Reid, assistant vice president at MetLife Auto and Home Insurance, Warwick, RI. They can also contact the NFIP program directly ( for coverage. The cost for coverage can vary significantly depending on your location. The average flood policy costs $600 per year, Reid says. © CTW Features

Fewer homes being sold, fewer real estate agents selling them. Ironically, though, consumers appear to have more options when they're selecting a real estate professional and a realty firm to help them buy or sell. Obtaining more training and offering more customized service has been a key way both brokerages and agents have survived one of the toughest housing downturns in history. The National Association of Realtors has seen an uptick in agents getting certified to handle short sales and foreclosures and taking the 12 hours of training leading to its "green" designation, says Paul Bishop, vice president of research. Moreover, during the downturn many agents exited the business. Those that remain tend to be more successful. "In some ways, finding the right agent has gotten easier because some of the marginal ones have been squeezed out of the profession," observes Ilona Bray, author of "Nolo's Essential Guide to Buying Your First Home" (NOLO, 2007). Competition Survives Given the severity of the downturn, one might guess there would be consolidation, with firms, especially large ones, gobbling up market share and becoming dominant players in their area. However, evidence of large scale consolidation of market share in the real estate brokerage industry is mixed, says Jason Beck, an economics professor at Armstrong Atlantic State University. Still, some smaller cities have seen contraction. If a real estate firm needs at least 10 listings at any given time to be able to keep afloat, Beck says, with just 30 homes on the market the most the town can support is three firms. Agent and Company Each agent has his own expertise and personality, and individual realty brokerages have carved out unique niches. Consumers should look at both — the agent and the firm behind him, says Pam O'Connor, CEO of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a net-

work of 600 real estate firms. "The individual agent's work ethic, service orientation and track record are critical to a successful transaction because so much of the service delivery occurs with that person," says O'Connor. Negotiating skills are more important than ever, says Bray. "Ask an agent, 'What's your negotiating style? Can you give examples of how you've dealt with difficult negotiations recently?'" It's also important for consumers to investigate the support the brokerage supplies the agent, she adds. A firm's local reputation and its support services, help agents sell homes more effectively and guide buyers, O'Connor maintains. Space for Small Some consumers, notes O'Connor, like the "customization and personality of local brands." In New York, Gil Neary, founder of a firm of the same name, says that his company attracts both buyers and sellers because it specializes in the nuances of the New York market, like co-op buildings that require buyers to fit certain profiles. "One building is known for not allowing pianos or people who run a business from their home," he says. Big Benefits There's name recognition with a national brand, says Jim Merrion, regional director for RE/MAX Northern Illinois, and that alone inspires confidence from buyers and sellers, he believes. But there are good reasons for the confidence a known name brings, Merrion adds. For instance, RE/MAX supplies its agents with training programs that explain how agents elsewhere in the country are successfully handling negotiations and other challenges. And, RE/MAX has tech support that helps its agents write listings that rise to the top of search engines, Merrion says. Consumers’ Call "While market leaders [amongst realty companies] tend to stay more or less on top, their positions are not set in stone," observes Beck. His studies indicate that there's "fluidity" in the market, and that's a "good thing for consumers." Copyright CTW Features

Counseling before borrowing BY MARYANN HAGGERTY NEW YORK TIMES

Even though the housing market remains sluggish, Bernell Grier says that her nonprofit agency is hearing from “record numbers of people” seeking advice on how home-buying works and whether they’re in a position to own now that real estate prices have fallen. “There’s this thing that the dream of homeownership in America is dead, and we’re not seeing that,” said Grier, the chief executive of Neighborhood Housing Services of New York City, which promotes affordable housing and is one of several groups that counsel homeowners and would-be homeowners. “We’re still seeing families interested in wanting to own their own property.” The non-profit GreenPath Debt Solutions, a counseling agency that has several offices in New York and provides telephone support nationally, is also seeing a steady stream of activity. Its goal is to teach about money management, mortgages, the closing process and homeowner responsibilities, “so first-time home buyers can make an informed decision,” said Setina Briggs, the housing program manager. Barry Zigas, the director of housing policy at the Consumer Federation of America, said counseling wasn’t an absolute necessity “to become a competent, well-educated consumer.” But it’s time worth spending, he argued. A home purchase is “the sort of transac-

tion you ought to enter into with as much information as you can.” Pre-purchase education, although traditionally aimed at low- and moderate-income first-time buyers, is available to anyone. Some loan offerings, like New York City’s HomeFirst Down Payment Assistance Program, require that people go through training to participate. In the wake of the financial crisis, there has been plenty of debate about whether there was too much emphasis on homeownership and whether people who never should have bought were pushed into risky loans. Supporters of pre-purchase education, including lenders, say that it reduces the chance that borrowers will get in over their heads. But a recent study conducted for the Mortgage Bankers Association found that there has been little scientifically rigorous research to prove that claim. Still, Grier and others cite their positive experiences — her agency, for instance, reviewed the records of about 250 families who had gone through counseling from 2005 to 2008. “We did not find anyone who lost their homes due to being in a bad mortgage product,” she said. Those who did face problems did so because their income had decreased. Families coming to counseling now say they want to avoid making the mistakes that brought others to the see next page

As end nears on stimulus, Fed signals focus on rates BY CHRISTINE HAUSER NEW YORK TIMES

A majority of Federal Reserve policy makers said at their most recent meeting that the best next step in their program to stimulate the economy would be to reduce the balance sheet and then focus on interest rates, according to minutes of the April meeting released on Wednesday. But they also said that simply discussing interest rates and other options did not mean that any move “would necessarily from preceding page

brink, she said. And those going through foreclosure counseling frequently say they wish they had learned the ins and outs of ownership before buying. Sometimes counseling involves a one-on-one review of finances, in person or over the phone. That can be buttressed with classes — Neighborhood Housing Services, for instance, has a 10-hour program. Some agencies are experimenting with online education. Whatever the format, pre-purchase education comes at little or no cost to the consumer — most agencies charge $25 or $50 to pull a credit report and for study materials. The counseling programs are usually financed by a mix of philanthropy, support from lenders and government money. The government financing is shaky, however: in April, during Congressional talks to avoid a government shutdown, $88 million was cut from the Depart-

begin soon.” The minutes, closely watched for any signs of change in Federal Reserve monetary policy, were released as the central bank was nearing the close of its program to buy $600 billion in Treasury securities by the end of June — its main effort to pump money into the economy as a stimulus. Economists and the financial markets will be parsing the language of the central bank and its officials in the coming weeks for signs of what the central bank might do when that program ends.

Programs probably won’t be eliminated until at least the end of September, said Eileen Fitzgerald, the acting chief executive of NeighborWorks America, a nonprofit group. Briggs said that agencies like hers were adequately staffed. A consumer ready for counseling “could pretty much get in the next day,” she added.
