Beer gardens everywhere

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– DIGEST––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

NEW YORK (NY Times) — There are some who thought, prematurely, that 2010 was New York’s summer of the beer garden, what with the World Cup and the opening of a half-dozen outdoor, German-style drinking establishments. But not unlike some genetically altered superweed, these aleand-oompah joints have continued even this year to crop up everywhere you look. They have grown so thick, so fast, that certain neighborhoods (Astoria in Queens and Williamsburg in Brooklyn come to mind) could, with the proper vantage and the help of several pilsners, be mistaken for Bavaria. It would seem that last summer’s sprouting of beer gardens is about to turn into this summer’s beer garden jungle. There are now no fewer than 54 beer gardens in the city, according to Beer Gardens NYC, a ninemonth-old iPhone application dedicated to tracking the phenomenon, and that does not include some that have been announced but are not yet open. There are classic beer gardens (Hallo Berlin), hipster beer gardens (Radegast Hall), beer gardens catering to frat boys (Studio Square) and a beer garden in a former Brooklyn auto-body shop (Mission Dolores).

Russia agrees to try to talk Qaddafi into leaving MOSCOW (NY Times) — President Dmitri A. Medvedev on Friday offered to leverage Russia’s relationships in Libya to try to persuade Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi to leave power, an act of high-wire diplomacy that for the first time casts Russia as a central player in events unfolding in North Africa. Medvedev’s announcement, which came a day after a 90-minute bilateral meeting with President Obama in France represents a pronounced shift in Russia’s tone on

Libya. Russia’s criticism of NATO attacks had become increasingly tough over the last months, reviving a longstanding critique of American unilateralism that had quieted since Obama took office. By attaching Russia’s prestige to the effort, Medvedev is taking a gamble. If Colonel Qaddafi could be convinced to leave, Russia would win international plaudits but would also bear some responsibility for guaranteeing his safety. If he cannot, Mr.

Security forces show some restraint as protests grow BEIRUT, Lebanon (NY Times) — Thousands of Syrians took to the streets again on Friday in virtually every region of the country, but in some locales, Syrian security forces showed restraint in not firing on the demonstrations in a possible bid to keep down a death toll that has brought growing international pressure and strained relations with Syria’s few allies. For weeks, Fridays have proven the bloodiest day in the 10-week uprising against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad, as security

forces, seemingly unaccountable in some parts of the country, have killed, wounded and beaten demonstrators who have gathered from the southern steppe to the Mediterranean coast and the Kurdish-dominated east. The death toll on Friday was seven, three protesters were killed in the central city of Homs, another three in the Damascus suburb of Qatana and one in the town of Zabadani, and though activists said the number would likely rise, it paled before the dozens killed in past weeks.

Medvedev might find it more difficult to keep his distance from the military campaign, which is not popular in Russia. But for Russia, all those risks may be mitigated by the symbolism of the moment. “Russia in the post-Soviet era has all these ideas about its influence and consequence in the world, and it is very sad for Russian politicians if it does not exist,” said Dmitri Oreshkin, an analyst with the Mercator Group, a Moscow-based think tank.

Officials: Number of missing from tornado lowered to 156 JOPLIN, Mo. (NY Times) — The number of people unaccounted for from this week’s tornado has been reduced to 156, officials said on Friday, as families received their first official notifications of the death of loved ones. But the situation in Joplin remained confusing for many families as the vast majority of bodies had not been released from the morgue, and the authorities were unable to agree on the number of people who had died: The city says 132; the state, which is leading the effort, says 126. State officials said they had confirmed the identities of 19 victims of Sunday’s tornado and had notified family members. The rest of the dead will presumably remain listed among the 156 missing until those bodies are identified. Officials in Joplin said they had been able to pare down the list of the missing from Thursday’s tally of 232 after they had received “credible reports” that 90 people on the list had been found to be safe.

Severe thunderstorms, rising water close roads in North Country BY LORNA COLQUHOUN THE UNION LEADER

LANCASTER — The quickest route from here to Littleton will remain closed throughout the Memorial Day weekend, after heavy rains inundated culverts early Friday morning on NH Route 135, according to Department of Transportation officials. In Littleton, several residents on the Dells Road, as well as campers parked in the Wal-Mart parking lot and overnight workers at two stores had to be evacuated when the water rose quickly and overflowed smaller streams. Meanwhile, the series of overnight severe and violent thunder and lightning storms has left the the North Country muggy and warm, bringing it worries of

what will happen later in the day. “We’re not sure what is going to happen this afternoon,” said Littleton fire department Lt. Ray Bowler. “We could have this happen again.” State road crews have miles of washed out road to deal with between Lancaster and Littleton, work, says DOT engineer Brian Schutt, that won’t be done this weekend. “We had three culverts - one in Lancaster, one in Dalton and one at the Dalton-Littleton town line - that went out,” he said. “The water overtopped and washed out the embankment. We’re leaving the road closed, but it is open to local traffic.” No one is landlocked along the road. Signs are in place warning motorists of the road closure at both ends of the road.

Carroll Johnson (C.J.) 9/9/35 – 5/28/10 It’s been one year since God saw you getting tired. A cure was not to be. So he put His arms around you and whispered come with me. With tearful eyes I watched you and saw you fade away. Although I love you dearly, I could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, your tender hands at rest. God took you home to prove He only takes the best. You will always and forever be in my heart. Your loving wife, Mary

*** ATTRACTIONS Memorial Day Weekend marks the launch for weekend operations for many local attractions. Cranmore Mountain Adventure Park: Cranmore Mountain Resort in North Conway hosts its grand opening of the Cranmore Mountain Adventure Park May 28, with the park open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The weekend celebration marks the return of the Cranmore Mountain Coaster, which launched last November, and the opening of the new aerial adventure park which includes a ropes course, zip lines and air-bridges. Special opening festivities will occur from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and will feature special events and family activities, including free face painting for the kids, family entertainment from Kuddles the Klown, free balloon animals and a nature tour at the summit with a naturalist from Tin Mountain Conservation Center. The park begins its summer season on a weekendonly schedule starting Memorial Day weekend and will expand to daily operations from June 18 through Labor Day. For more information, go to or call 1-800-SUN-SKI. Attitash: Attitash Mountain Resort is scheduled to open summer operations beginning Saturday, May 28, at 10 a.m. for its 35th summer attraction season. This summer’s 35-year anniversary recognizes when the original Alpine Slides, opening this weekend and still the longest lengths in North America, were first opened to the public on July 1, 1976. With many more summer attractions having been added at the base of Attitash Mountain since then, the Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster is the newest thrill ride, having just opened last fall. Similar in concept to a “roller coaster” where riders are seated in carts that travel on a very smooth pair

of rails elevated off the ground, the new Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster is different in that it utilizes natural gradients of the mountain bringing guests up 1,430 feet of track before descending on a fun and exhilarating 2,880-foot long ride down through the wooded terrain. Also unique to Attitash Mountain Resort, the opening Memorial Day Weekend begins lift-serviced, downhill, mountain biking on a network of 27 designated trails. The Nor’Easter Mountain Coaster, alpine slides, and mountain biking will be open as weather permits for weekends only May 28 through June 11, when daily operations begin. All rates and information can be found online at or by calling 1-800-223 SNOW. Wildcat: Wildcat Mountain opens for summer operations beginning Saturday, May 28, at 10 a.m., offering two major state attractions for the long Memorial Day Weekend: New Hampshire’s only ZipRider zip-line

cable ride and the highest scenic gondola in the state, the Wildcat Express. The ZipRider offers a descent of just under a halfmile over trails, tree-tops, and the Peabody River at heights. The Wildcat Express offers sensational views of the White Mountain National Forest and of Wildcat’s neighbor, Mount Washington. The ZipRider and scenic gondola will commence daily operations June 11. All rates and information can be found online at or by calling 1-888-SKI-WILD. Mount Washington Auto Road: On Saturday, May 28, the Mount Washington Auto Road will host Alton Weagle Day, a celebration of firsts on the “Road to the Sky” that was first opened in August 1861. Alton Weagle Day is one of the many special events planned to commemorate the Mt. Washington Auto Road’s 150th anniversary season this summer . The day commemorates the adventurous spirit of Weagle, who holds more “firsts” up Mount Washington than any other person and became known for a while

as “Mr. Mount Washington.” Included in his exploits, Weagle has run up the Auto Road barefoot and blindfolded and climbed the mountain in every month of the year. Among his more unique trips up the nearly 8-mile road is pushing a wheelbarrow loaded with a 100-pound bag of sugar — without setting it down. Weagle passed away in 1984, but his spirit lives on. The first 300 visitors who drive up the Auto Road on May 28 will become part of another unique record, as each will be given a pair of Groucho Marx glasses as a souvenir, which will allow each family wearing them to be a part of the Alton Weagle Day record for unusual ascents. A special ceremony recognizing records set that day along with a proclamation presented to the Weagle family will take place at 1 p.m. in the Red Barn Museum at the road’s base. The road is now open daily to the summit, weather permitting. For more information, visit or call 466-3988. see WEEKEND page 24

What should be done with the old nursing home after the new one is completed? The new $23.5 million county nursing home is expected to be open this fall. State lawmakers and county commissioners are now discussing what to do with the old building. Commissioners have been asked to come up with a list of possible uses by June 27. Several ideas have already been discussed, including using a portion of the building to house Carroll County’s branch of University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension. Other suggestions have included a dialysis center; homeless shelter; drug rehabilitation center; and renting space to businesses that have outgrown the Mount Washington Valley Economic Council’s Tech Village. There is also discussion about how much of the facility to even salvage. Commissioners are proposing to tear down two wings and utilize the remaining 9,000 square feet of space.

The 14-Week Challenge This is Memorial Day weekend. Fourteen weeks from now is Labor Day weekend. In those 14 weeks — a period roughly one and a half times longer than the general election season next year — the Republicans have a lot of work to do. In perhaps no time in three-quarters of a century — since the fight for the 1936 Republican nomination — has either party fielded as weak a field of presidential candidates as the Republicans present today. In no time in nearly a half-century — since the Democratic upheaval of 1968 — has a major party seemed so confused about its future and divided about its vision. No one can convincingly argue that the Republicans' survival as a major force in American political life is in jeopardy. In fact, it is plausible to argue that the Republicans' prospects are brighter today than at any time since 1981, when Ronald Reagan was inaugurated and had a formidable cast of supporting actors in the Senate, led by Howard H. Baker Jr. of Tennessee and Robert J. Dole of Kansas, both of whom would appear on almost any credible list of the greatest 25 senators of the 20th century. Indeed, the last party to seem in danger of slipping from competitiveness was the Democratic Party in the early summer of 1992, when its candidate was running third in the polls, prompting GOP lawyers to examine a legal strategy to prove that it no longer was a legitimate political party and therefore was ineligible for federal matching campaign funds. The fact that Bill Clinton roared back to win the 1992 election is a reminder of how swiftly a major party can rebound. But for the Republicans to rebound in presidential politics by the general election of 2012 they will have to use the next 14 weeks profitably and to answer several difficult questions that get at the conundrum of the season, which is how a party with such a strong congressional wing can have a presidential wing that is so weak: — Is what you see what you get? The Republicans, like parties often do, seem to be presenting a slate of candidates in several categories. There's a top tier, which consists of three former governors, Mitt Romney of Massachusetts, Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and Jon Huntsman Jr. of Utah, though it is a miracle of nature how Huntsman, with about 15 minutes as a presidential candidate and name recognition likely recorded in fractions rather than integers, maneuvered himself there. Then there's a tier of known names with no known reason for hope, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, and a third tier, including former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, appealing to the emotional wing of a party that, with presidents including William Howard Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover and Richard M. Nixon, was not until now much swayed by emotion. And, of course, there's former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska. There probably are a few others, but forgive me for forgetting who they are and for not being able to name the pizza guy if my life depended on it and even if a fistful of polls, like Zogby International's last week, say he's the Republicans' top choice.

"Of the two parties, they're supposed to be the disciplined one," says former Sen. Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut, who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. "What you're seeing now is not what you'll see later." — What might we see later? The latest CNN-WMUR Poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire shows that more than four in 10 potential New Hampshire primary voters aren't satisfied with the GOP field. Dodd thinks former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida will be in the race before the autumn is out. By many measures, he is the most politically gifted Bush of them all, including George H.W. Bush (reviled when he left office in 1993 but transformed in recent years into a beloved figure and, two weeks from now, the recipient of an honorary degree at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire) and George W. Bush (whose acolytes say that the Obama years have been the best thing to happen to W's reputation). The passing of four years since his older brother's valedictory may be enough for a third Bush to run for president. Then there is Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the Budget Committee chairman who is a poster boy on the left for Republican perfidy and on the right for Republican courage. So far, Ryan, focused on the House and on the kids in his own household, has resisted entreaties to run. — Will the field stay so diffuse or will the disciplined party focus itself by Labor Day? That depends in large measure on money and party pressure, which in the old Republican Party used to be the same thing. Romney has gobs of money, enough already probably to finance a campaign in 2016, too. Others are not so well equipped for a long fight. Many Republicans want Gingrich out of the race, believing that his running up hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt to buy jewelry isn't even half the problem with his candidacy. They feel about Gingrich the way Winston Churchill once described Charles de Gaulle: "Why, he's selfish, he's arrogant, he thinks he's the center of the universe." Churchill then added, to Harold Nicolson, the parliamentary secretary, "You're right, he's a great man!" Hardly anyone adds that last sentence about Gingrich, brilliant as a tactician and thinker but not as a popular political figure. "They have got to settle on two candidates by the fall and get rid of the silly stuff that is a distraction," says Gary Orren, professor of public policy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and author of a book on the New Hampshire primary. "In the end, Americans are serious about choosing a president." But the challenge for the Republicans is that the party lacks a guiding core that can help give shape to the race. The leading GOP figure is House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio. His Republican caucus is so fractured that he cannot possibly turn his attention away from Capitol Hill, especially with debt and debt-ceiling issues looming. Like so many others, he's on the sidelines, watching. David Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist has a vacation home in Kearsarge.

Rally In The Valley is not just for bikers To the editor: Did you know that there is a scholarship fund for students from Kennett High School who want to further their education at a tech/trade school, and that scholarships in these fields are limited? These students are also offered mentoring and job search help as we continue to keep in touch with them. Do you know how those funds are raised and who does it? We do, and we are the Mount Washington Valley HOG (Harley Owners Group) Chapter 2531 of Conway. Since 1998 we have donated $20,000 to various local charities and scholarships. In 2005 our chapter voted to devote all fund raising efforts solely to our scholarship fund. In 2007, we started Rally In The Valley as our major fund-raiser. Our goal was two-fold. First, to raise as much money as we could to provide these scholarships. Think, for a moment, where our community would be without the skills of, for example, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, metal workers/welders and mechanics. Second, to give a “boost” to our valley’s economy by bringing some of that “Bike Week” business to our area. Previously we did a cook-out at Mount Washington, but that only brought people to the area for one day. Local businesses in our area have been so kind and generous in the past, supporting our endeavors as sponsors for our events, despite the failing economy – we felt a need to give something back. Yes, we know the roar and

thunder of those motorcycles and the increased traffic may annoy some of you for a week, but in view of the goals, isn’t it worth it? This year we would like to ask you, the community, to join us in our efforts. Rally In The Valley is NOT just for bikers. Our events include live bands, a fashion show with apparel from many local shops, raffles, contests and good food and drinks at our new indoors rally headquarters — Hillbilly’s. By merely purchasing a $5 wristband there or at the Conway Harley shop, you not only gain entrance to our events, but will also get discounts for dining and shopping in the area during Rally week. In addition, our Ladies of Harley will be having a cook-out Monday through Thursday at our dealership. Why not stop by on your lunch hour and take advantage of our $5 meal deal? So if you enjoy good people, good music, good food and good times, please join us this year Sunday, June 12 to Friday, June 17 for Rally In The Valley. Schedules of our activities will be available at both Hillbilly’s and the Harley shop. You can also visit our website @: www. We are a group of community-minded people from all walks of life. And you are our community. Together we can help insure futures for our youth and bring some additional much needed business to the valley.

Nicholas Howe

With the Donkeys Talking to the crews of the Appalachian Mountain Club huts, I realize that the White Mountain Jackass Company is hardly remembered even as vague rumors from the olden days. If few remember the days of the donkeys, fewer still ever knew how the noble tradition began. Joe Dodge was hired to manage the AMC establishment at the foot of the Tuckerman Ravine Trail in Pinkham Notch. That was in 1930, a time when the club had one employee in Boston and one a small building in the notch. Before long, Joe kept the door open all winter and then, as he liked to say, he threw away the key. Several huts were already in service, but larger plans were to come, and they lead to a chain of huts a day’s hike apart so hikers could stay out for a week or more without carrying anything but their clothes and their wallet And, let me add, the wallet did not have to very wellstocked. In my days, a bunk and very generous servings of supper, breakfast, and trail lunch cost less than a cheeseburger with fries and coffee at a roadside eatery today. That future took shape in the winter of 1930. The first hut built from scratch was Greenleaf, on Mount Lafayette above Franconia Notch, and many tons of building material would have to be brought up one of most difficult pack trails in the mountains, not for nothing is one section called “The Agonies.” And, it should be understood, “hut” does not mean a minimal back country shelter. In my days, the larger ones could handle 60 or more people overnight, and they’ve been enlarged since then. Everyday supplies were brought up by the hut crews and on a construction job the packing crew was paid by the pounds they carried. There was an alternative. Donkeys could be fed for less than human packers, but there was a price for this economy. The animals often had firm ideas about the job and more serious differences of opinion could be avoided by staying away from their hind legs. New England is not donkey country, so the entrepreneurs turned to thought. A little research suggested that one source of donkeys was in the southwestern states and they retained the services of an equine expert who was recommended by a telephone operator in Maine who got this news by listening in on other peoples’ conversations, a widespread source in information in those days. The far west man turned out to be well acquainted with the fourhoofed arts, but not quite the ones Joe needed, he was a prominent polo player. So, with this uncertain guide, the would-be drovers made their way through the unfamiliar labyrinths of the donkey market and eventually loaded 40 steeds onto a train bound for New Hampshire. The off-loading point was in Randolph, which is the next town west of Gorham. This was a matter of access; no other pack trail was anywhere near a railroad track, but the Canadian Grand Trunk ran right across the beginning of the Valley Way. This was the scene of a major surprise for the organizers — 40 donkeys got on the train in New Mexico, but 41 got off in New Hampshire. There was no obvious explanation, but several decades later the donkeys’ old home town was reported to be the favorite earthly destination for other exotic travelers. It was Roswell, site of our most frequently-cited UFO landing. The Valley Way was prepared for this new future by a crew of swampers, a name that identified men who did the difficult work of carving a passable trail out of forests and granite, and they improved the trail with axes and shovels while Joe Dodge contributed a dynamite crew to reduce any ledges that might be trouble-

some. Then the WMJC executives learned that the skills of a mule-skinner are not a genetic endowment among college boys; in fact, they are not even very widespread. In the first ten days of operations for the skyline hut between Mounts Adams and Madison only 600 pounds of payload moved up the mountain, which did not compare favorably with what the Madison crew could bring up the trail if they had the time. WMJC stock plunged. Then word came through that an experienced muleskinner might be found on a logging job at Macwahoc Plantation in Maine, a man who’d learned the donkey trades in the army when the military was still heavily committed to four-footed transportation. His exact location was unknown, so the WMJC organizers headed into the woods. It seemed to be a cold trail, then Joe made several calls from Slewgundie Corner in Aroostook County looking for the man, and when the last party rang off they heard a new voice. It was a switch-board operator who had stayed on the line to listen in, as party-line operators liked to do on slow days. She told Joe that the man he wanted was over at Meadow Brook in Range 4 of Township 8, which were map coordinates that a woods-wise fellow would understand. Muleskinners and mules were finally united at the foot of the Valley Way trail. Six tons of material went up, then the team was split and half stayed in Randolph to finish the Madison job while the rest went over to Franconia Notch to carry construction material for the new hut at tree-line on Mount Lafayette. The White Mountain Jackass Company served with distinction during the summer, but Joe Dodge’s headquarters in Pinkham Notch was not suitable as a winter home and they spent their off-season time on the farm of “Nabor George” Harris and his brother west of Gorham in Whitefield. The working staff of the WMJC settled to seven animals, which was the number that could be moved from one job to the next loaded crosswise into an old high-sided truck. This could be trouble if one of them fell down and it drew an appreciative crowd if the load had to be reorganized in front of one of the many stylish hotels along the route. The donkeys would help pack up what was known as the initial order for five of the huts, the clean blankets, fuel, and non-perishable groceries. This work would be done early in the season, then the donkeys would help with any AMC construction project that was under way except at Lakes of the Clouds on Mount Washington, where suitable accommodations were not available at either the hut or the summit. My introduction to the AMC’s donkey work was a week of dead-heading with my brother John in 1948 during his second summer as chief mule skinner, and those were technical terms. Dead-heading does not involve fatalities, it describes willing but unpaid help. Similarly, a mule skinner did not work with vivisection, he was not taking the first step in making leather, he was the driver. After learning the basic elements of the job with my brother, I was full-time in a later season and that was near the end of the trail for Little Hoss. He was the last member of the original team from Roswell and he was buried with heartfelt sorrow just above the main building in Pinkham Notch. The donkeys finally gave way to the thump and roar of helicopters, and life on the trails was never the same again. Nicholas Howe is a writer from Jackson. E-mail him at

(On the cover) Twenty years ago this month, Rick Wilcox of Eaton stood on top of the world when he and three members of his eight-man New England Everest Expedition climbed 29,029-foot Mount Everest on May 15, 1991. Wilcox, now 63, reflects on some of the changes that have occurred in climbing over the past two decades in the story below. (Above left) Everest base camp, on the Nepalese side of the mountain.

Rick Wilcox looks back on going up Everest BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Two decades ago this month, Rick Wilcox of International Mountain Equipment stood on top of the world, reaching the summit of 29,029foot Mount Everest on the last day of the New England Everest Expedition's permit from the Nepalese government. When he reached the summit of the world's largest peak at 9:45 a.m. May 15, 1991, the then 43-year-old Wilcox was the 200th person to stand on that lofty chunk of real estate. Climbing from the Nepalese side, his team followed the same South Ridge route that Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay took to become the first to ascend Everest, achieving that feat on May 29, 1953. Twenty years after Wilcox's New England Everest Team ascent, an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 have reached the top, just part of the changes that have impacted that once remote part of the world. Rampant commercialism, litter on the mountain, foolhardy choices ... it's all part of the Everest story in the two decades since Wilcox and three members of his eight-man team reached the summit. Their expedition suc-

ceeded in a year when only six climbers reached the summit overall. Foremost among the events of the past 20 years since the New Enganders' climb was the tragedy of May 11, 1996, when eight climbers perished in a storm high on the mountain in a single day — the story told in Jon Krakauer's 1997 best-seller, “Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster.” They were part of a total of 15 who perished that season, making it the deadliest single year in Everest history. Technological change has also marked the 20 intervening years since Wilcox and fellow New England Everest Expedition climbers Mark Richey, Barry Rugo and the late Yves LaForest made their ascent up the traditional South Ridge route from the Nepalese side, the same route followed by Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay to become the first to reach the summit on May 29, 1953. The latest technological milestone concerning Everest was achieved in October 2010, when a Nepalese telecommunications company installed a 3G mobile phone network around the mountain and said that its coverage would even reach the summit. see WILCOX page 16

E-mail? Weather updates from what was one of the world's most remote locations when Hillary and Norgay achieved their mark? Welcome to the new Everest. The Conway Daily Sun caught up with Wilcox this month to reflect on some of those changes with Everest. ••• Conway Daily Sun: Describe how technology has changed the Everest experience.

Rick Wilcox: It's huge. Twenty years ago, there were no phones [there at Everest]; today, you have satellite phones and climbers can call home every day. Twenty years ago, there was no Internet; now, there are web pages for individual climbers. Back then, there were no weather reports [at Everest]; now, you can access full satellite weather forecasts to know when to go to the top. Twenty years ago, there were no laptops; now you can play movies while you're waiting; back then, there see WILCOX page 18

Wilcox, still climbing after all these years BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — In addition to the transformations on Everest, changes have taken place in Rick Wilcox's life as well in the years since he and three team members stood on top of the world. Since his ascent, he has gotten divorced and remarried to Celia, his second wife. His and his first wife Brenda Einstein's two children are grown, having graduated from college this year. President of the volunteer Mountain Rescue Service, Wilcox grew up in Massachusetts, summered at Camp Tohkompeupog at Purity Spring Resort in Eaton and first climbed Mount Washington at age 6. His interest in climbing was heightened after he heard a talk in Boston in 1964 while still in high school, given by a member of the 1963 American Everest Expe-

dition led by Jim Whitaker. He moved to North Conway after college to manage the Eastern Mountain Sports store, and in 1979, he purchased International Mountain Equipment. Overall, Wilcox has been to Nepal 28 times, with the Everest ascent marking his fifth time to the country. In addition to Everest, he has climbed in Alaska, Africa, Europe and South America. Since his ascent of Everest, other changes have included the discovery of the well-preserved, frozen body of famed Everest explorer George Mallory who was last seen on the mountain with Sandy Irvine in 1924. A team that included videographer Thom Pollard of Kearsarge located Mallory's body in 1999. They held a burial ceremony, and covered the body with rocks. Pollard hopes to return next year with a team to locate Irvine's 603-374-6660 Route 302, Bartlett

body, all in an effort to unsolve one of Everest's most compelling mysteries: Did they die on their way up or down? Through it all, whether in the Himalaya or Mount Washington, Wilcox's approach to climbing has always been to put safety first. As he noted after his ascent in 1991, “It doesn't count in mountaineering if you don't make it down.” That means that Mallory and Irvine didn't quite achieve their goal, whether they made it to the top or not. Contrarily, Hillary and Norgay did, so they get the “first” honors for their ascent in 1953, dramatic as the Mallory and Irvine mystery may be. Did Everest live up to Wilcox's expectations? “Absolutely,” he said this week, echoing what he said in a June 1991 interview upon his return to the valley. “It had to be right there with my best summit day I've had anywhere.”

was no [widespread use of the] Internet and no e-mail; now everyone surfs. When we made our climb, ours was one of seven permits issued and there were 30 to 50 people at base camp. There was no hospital there — now, over 1,000 people climb a season, with 50 to 60 different permits issued to teams. There's a full-service hospital at base camp. Also, when we climbed, there was no food at base camp other than what you brought. Now, there is a restaurant — the Trekkers' Restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, right at base camp. People who are part of trekking groups hike the three hours to base camp, have lunch, then hike back to their camps. CDS: You achieved a 50 percent success rate in getting four of the eight members of the New England Everest Expedition to the top, including yourself. When was the last time the team got together? RW: The last time we all got together was eight years ago to attend the memorial service for Yves [LaForest], who was killed in a kayaking accident [in 2003] while raising money for cancer. His wife on the anniversary May 15 e-mailed me a photo of his 7-year-old son whom she was pregnant with at the time he was killed. It's a sad story. Yves wrote a book about the expedition. He was the first Canadian and the first Quebec resident to successfully climb Everest so he was quite the hero up there. May 15th was Mark Richey's 53rd birthday — remember, he celebrated his 33rd birthday on the summit, which was a pretty good birthday present! So, I heard from him. We [fellow summiters Richey and Rugo, and climbers Dr. Mike Sinclair, Dr. Richard St. Onge and local guide Marc Chauvin of North Conway] all stay in touch. Except Gary Scott, who lives in Colorado and who sort of became the

black sheep of the expedition. I am not sure what he is doing. Watch the video, “Thin Air” — he screwed up so badly on the expedition. He was not into the team effort [that typified the rest of the team]. He was the Iron Man triathlete who was supposed to run up the mountain in a day but who couldn't get up there and we had to go rescue him. CDS: How has climbing equipment changed? RW: Technical gear? That's the one thing that hasn't changed much from when we climbed Everest. CDS: People nowadays pay thousands of dollars to have a guide lead them to the top. What are your views on that change? RW: We did it the very traditional way, with just a few climbing Sherpas. We climbed the ice falls, we set our ropes, we got to the four camps, we did all of our own cooking. The Sherpas never spent a night with us at Camps III or IV — we did all the work from the South Col to the summit. When the four of us climbed to the top, we were not roped together. Mark and Yves reached the top at 8:30 a.m. [after leaving at midnight from Camp IV at 26,000 feet]; Barry and I got there at 9:45 or 10 a.m. and left at 11. There was no wind and blue skies. Incredible. It took me 9.45 hours to get to the summit from Camp IV, and two hours for me to get back to Camp IV. CDS: How does that experience contrast to today’s? RW: The way the mountain is climbed now is people go with guided groups, and people could spend as little as six days there, while we spent two and a half months working above base camp [elevation: 17,590 feet], going back and forth and carrying loads. Today, you would go to base camp and pay a fee to use fixed rope from base camp to the summit, and you would not carry loads. All of the loads would be carried for you. They are taking 50 to 100 people a day to the top and those people have only been on the mountain six days. They go up the rope and back. CD: How have the economics changed? RW: They pay $80,000 to $100,000 each if they are guided — we paid $12,000 each. We paid $5,000 for the eight of us to get a permit — if you went today, it's $10,000 per person now. CDS: What else stands out from then and now? RW: We were the only ones on the summit the day we did it — we would have to share the route today with all of these guided groups. There's a 50 percent success rating today. CDS: Does that new approach bother you? RW: We look at that as a lot of people are climbing Mount Everest but not necessarily in the style that climbers used to use to get to big ground. see next page

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 28, 2011— Page 19

from preceding page

When you go to a big mountain other than Everest, you have to bring everything necessary to climb that mountain, as if you are the only one to climb that mountain — all of your ropes, your tents, your sleeping bags. You get it all up on the mountain, and then you can climb. Now, the Sherpas can make a lot of money to do this all for you — you go to camp, and then you can climb when the weather is right. But the real style is to do the work, and and then climb. CDS: So you feel as though something has been lost? RW: You take pride in your achievement based on how much work is involved I find if you don't work as hard for the achievement it is not as meaningful. In climbing, when you set the goals to challenge yourself to the best of your ability, if you eliminate the difficulty, then you don't have the challenge — nor the reward. When we stood on top of Everest, we were the only ones there and we knew we had worked hard to get there as a small team. CDS: How would you rate Everest among all your high-altitude climbs? RW: I'd put it in the top five: at third, probably. It's hard to compare it

with some of the hard technical routes I have done. My tops would be when Mark Richey and I did the South Face of Nkojumba-Kang (elevation 26,200) in 1985. CDS: What’s next? RW: In July, I am leading a group of 12 to Kilimanjaro [elevation: 19,300 feet] on a two-week trip. My wife, Celia, is going with me. We have gone back to Africa every July for the past seven years. In October, we are returning to the Himalaya near the Annapurna range. And next April, we will do a monthlong Everest base camp trip. CDS: With the changes in how the mountain is climbed by using guides who do much of the hard work, would you at age 63 be interested in going back to try and climb Everest the new way? RW: I get asked that question all the time by a lot of people. I could probably do it, if everybody does the hard work for you on these guided trips. I still lead trips over 20,000 feet and I am still comfortable doing it. But the answer is: I wouldn't want to. It was such a wonderful experience in '91— it was very hard work and it all went well with the 50 percent success rate we had. I don't think you could ever repeat that experience on Everest today — it's not possible. There are too many people there today. see next page

CDS: How did climbing Everest change you as a person? RW: In high school, I dragged my parents to a lecture at Symphony Hall in 1964 by a member of the 1963 American expedition. I told myself then that if I didn't get to climb it, I would at least go and see it. Having set that goal early on, achieving it made me less competitive and more at ease with my position in the climbing world. You don't have to prove anything anymore. It frees you up to go and do what you want to do that isn't very important to the rest of the world. So, it makes you more relaxed. CDS: Do you still give your lectures on Everest? RW: I just gave one at the Conway Public Library last winter. I'm available!

Gov. Lynch. We're also to receive a special award from the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance for the preservation and re-use of a historic barn frame, as Maggie Stier of the alliance is coming up. It's all going to be very exciting.” He added that the project has been one of the most enjoyable and worthwhile he has ever been part of. “I think it has come out extraordinarily beautiful,” said Harding, a retired teacher from the Lawrenceville School of New Jersey, who has been a resident with his wife Betsy of Jackson since 2001. “It has been very well-received by the public.” Prior to the celebration, the library will be holding its annual book sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Whitney Community Center. *** Saturday's events are the latest in a series of celebrations marking the historic barn's transformation. On Veterans Day in November 2009, the community gathered to mark the once and future uses of the 19th-century building, as its reassembled ribs took shape against the blue fall skies in the day's topping off ceremony. On Dec. 7, 2010, the library held a soft opening, as Nov. 20 marked the last day of operation at the old

1901-built Emerson building. That former library measured 700 square feet, 1,000 volumes — and no running water. The new library, by contrast, measures 3,800 square feet, has 10,000 volumes — and a kitchenette, an elevator, two handicapped-accessible bathrooms, eight computer stations (four downstairs and four upstairs), and several easy chairs that makes for comfortable reading. “You can even come in for a cup of coffee,” beams Harding. Part of the charm of the renovated structure are the rustic timber beams — several of the beams feature various miniature animals, airplanes and other objects mischievously hidden by the library staff as well as by Michael Weeder and his crew of Tamrack Construction of Jackson, the general contractors for the project. “Susan Dunker-Bendigo, the library director, and her staff hand out a sheet to patrons of all ages for the library's 'Artifact Scavenger Hunt' — no one to date has found all 28,” laughed Harding. The original front sliding door from the Trickey Barn now frames the door of the elevator on the Mezzanine floor upstairs. The door contains carved initials of former owners of the barn and employees of the Jackson Falls House. The Trickey Barn formerly stood where the Whit-

ney Community Center now stands behind the Jackson Falls Marketplace, home of the Jackson Post Office. That complex stands on the site of the former Jackson Falls House. The rebirth of the Trickey Barn represents a cooperative effort between the Jackson Historical Society, the Friends of the Jackson Public Library and the town of Jackson. The cost, according to Harding, was just over $1.35 million. “Originally, we planned a new building — but we cut back on the size because of the expense — and also because of the opportunity to use the barn frame from the historical society, which they had saved,” said Harding. “It really is an exciting story of a community gathering together to build a facility that was badly needed, while preserving a piece of Jackson history.” The historical society stepped in to rescue the structure in 2008 for later use by paying to dismantle the frame, number the timbers and provide safe storage for them in waterproofed box trailers. At the same time, Harding related, library trustees were considering building a larger, safer structure for the library. The historical society invited the trustees of the see next page

noon Monday at the Tamworth Veterans Memorial to honor the nation's fallen service men and women, according to David Haskell (323-8775). *** A resident of Brownfield, Maine, Pandora is a U.S. Navy veteran of the Korean War who served from 1948 to 1954, earning the rank of SO1 (sonar first class petty officer) while on-board the U.S.S. Shannon (DM 25). He says serves as Post 95's finance officer and coordinates the cooking for the post's annual Christmas dinner at the Congregational church in Conway every December. He regularly volunteers to place American flags at veterans' graves in Brownfield and North Conway, and wherever else there is a need such as recently in Conway. “I've got to slow down, because I hate to admit it, but I'm 81 now — but I do it because I like to honor those who came before us and who made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Pandora, saying Memorial Day is “more than just a three-day weekend.” With American service people continuing to serve overseas in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea and other hot spots, the need to mark the sacrifice of all veterans is sacrosanct, according to Pandora. “I just respect the guys — and I mean men and women — who did a helluva lot more than we did. I enjoy placing the flags. I read every headstone. Three years ago,” he said, “I cleared dirt and grass away from an old headstone in the North Conway cemetery, and it turned out to be a World War I veteran. It had been covered up for years.” *** Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. According to, there is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel

Sweet carried the dedication "To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead" While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, authorities say it's difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. “It is more likely,” writes www.usmemorialday. org, ”that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen John Logan giving his official proclamation in May 1868.” Logan was the national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every state on the last Monday in May.

In Memory of C.J. 05/28/2010 It’s been one year since we had to say goodbye. You’re still thought of every moment of the day by many loved ones. And I still cherish the sweet memories we shared. I remember walking to your barn to see your cows, the pigs, and the chickens. I remember you keeping your garden alive all through the spring and summer. I remember going to your house so mom and Erin could pick strawberries. I remember you riding your tractor on the side of the street and I would wave to you from the bus window. I remember seeing your truck almost everyday in the Patch’s parking lot. I remember your smile that was as bright as the summer sun. I remember your laugh that was as loud as thunder. And I remember your hugs that were always as welcoming as could be. It’s been one year since we had to say goodbye, and you’re still forever in our hearts. Andrea S. Porter

FRYEBURG — Tracy Weitz, Fryeburg Academy’s Director for the Center for International Students, was this year’s Baccalaureate Speaker for the 155 members of the Academy’s graduating Class of 2011 this Sunday in the Performing Arts Center at 2 p.m. Here is Weitz’s inspirational speech on Fryeburg’s handling of its diverse student population. “Good evening and welcome students, parents, faculty, family members and friends. It is truly an honor to be the faculty speaker this evening. I’ve had a great time with the seniors

this week. I am very impressed by this graduating class. They are friendly, humorous, and possess great attitudes, especially while braving the pouring rain during community service the last few days. I work in the Center for International Students, so I know the international students very well. This week has given me the opportunity to get to know many students I would not necessarily get the chance to meet. From my point of view, Fryeburg see RAIDERS page 28 10 Eastern Ave., Ctr.

Academy is an amazing place. In the eleven years I have been here, I have witnessed the development of our beautiful campus, various programs and curriculum. But the most amazing part of our school is the student body. It is amazing to me that the students all come together so effortlessly with such a diverse population. It is amazing to me that young teenagers leave their homes in Korea, Nepal, Germany, China, Spain, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Japan (to name just a few of the countries represented at Fryeburg Academy). They fly all alone to America to study in a different language and in a new culture. If you have not travelled abroad alone, it is hard to imagine how difficult this is. I did this, but I was an adult, not a teenager, and I was still petrified. I look back to when I took a teaching position in the Czech Republic in

1993. This was shortly after the Soviet Union had left that part of Europe. I was hired on the phone by the headmaster of the high school in a small village near the Polish border. He called at 3 a.m. to interview me – I guess he forgot about the time change, but I still got the job. Two weeks later I was on a plane to an unknown place. When I say unknown, I mean UNKNOWN. This was right before the internet came into our lives, so I could not Google this town or click on its Facebook page to see what I was getting into. I did not speak a word of Czech and knew very little about the country except for the recent political situations at that time. I remember looking at my parents at the airport as I boarded the plane thinking, “What the heck am I doing?” I was terrified. Excited, but terrified. And I was a grown woman! I could not have done that as a teen-

ager, and I continue to be astonished that our international students do this at such young ages. It is also remarkable to me that, year after year, the students who have grown up here and bonded together welcome these new students so easily into their homes, their sport teams, clubs and organizations, and eventually into their hearts with very little notice. It seems as if it is second nature to these students, but it has been my experience that it is not always this way outside of Fryeburg. I have lived and worked in many other environments, and diversity in a population can, and often does, lead to a lot of problems. The amazing thing is that we all do it so naturally and almost effortlessly that we do not notice that we are doing it at all. Our diversity has become a part of our very fabric, weaving our lives together in a truly inspiring way. It is difficult sometimes to see how special a community is until you have left. Many of the students here tonight are anticipating the next step, anxious to start the journey of their post-high school lives. One thing that may surprise them is how much they will miss this place. Many of my former students write to me once they have graduated and they usually say the same thing: they miss Fryeburg so much. When I ask them what it is they miss, they usually say they have a difficult time finding people who care as much as the people do at Fryeburg Academy. These comments, surprisingly, usually come from the students who said repeatedly to me, “I can’t wait to get out of here!” I know I speak for the entire faculty in wishing you all the very best in your lives. I hope that you take what you have learned here about living in a diverse community and go out and share it with the people in the world. You have a lot to teach them. Thank you.”

The quiet woods of southwest Maine

This Thursday I drove over to Lovell, Maine for an Ed Parsons afternoon hike up Mount Sabattus (1,253 feet). The quiet woods of southwest Maine did their magic. Heading north up Route 5 from Fryeburg, I passed through Lovell village and continued on, eventually passing the Center Lovell Market. I took the second right after the store on Sabattus Road, bore right on the dirt Sabattus Trail Road, and continued about a mile and a half to the sign for the trail parking lot on the right. I pulled in, the only hiker there on one of the first blue sky days in weeks. It was warm, and the bugs weren’t out. I started up the trail, and at the loop junction, took the right hand trail, which was the original half mile trail to the top before the 1.4 mile loop. Immediately my eyes were drawn to a generous patch of purplish rose flowers called gay wings (Polygala paucifolia) on the ground. That was an auspicious start. I continued up the trail, passing over rolling ledges of granite covered with ground cover, and soon walked out of the forest onto the summit ledge, passing the concrete foundation corners of the old fire tower.

Tin Mountain presents ‘The Connecticut: New England's Great River’ nature program June 2 ALBANY — "The Connecticut: New England's Great River" nature program on Thursday, June 2, at 7 p.m. at Tin Mountain Conservation Center Nature Learning Center in Albany begins with an armchair tour of this great river in New Hampshire and Vermont, exploring its history natural beauty through the seasons and among the communities that have sprung up along its banks. This program is more than a travelogue, the presentor, Adair Mulligan explores the many issues involved in managing the health of this major river, and how citizens from all walks of life have created a vision for its future. The largest river in New England rises in a small beaver pond near the Canadian border and flows over 400 miles through four states, falling 2,670 feet to the sea through America's only watershed-based national fish and wildlife refuge. Mulligan is an environmental biologist and natural resource planner. Currently executive director of the Hanover Conservation Council, she served for 20 years as a conservation director of the Connecticut River Joint Commissions, working with valley citizens to create the Connecticut River Management Plan. Tin Mountain Nature Programs are generously sponsored by L.L. Bean and the Evenor Armington Fund. Donations of $3 per person and $5 per family are appreciated; members are free.

HIKING from page 31

For a diminutive mountain, the view from Mount Sabattus is dramatic. From its tall south facing ledge, there is a grand vista. The only thing that can change that, is the atmosphere. On Thursday, the view started a few hundred feet directly below my feet, where yellow/green new leaves clothed the forest. The view shot outward from there, with only a slight haze on the horizon. To the east, was nestled Keyes Pond in Sweden, to the west, the south bay of Kezar Lake, with a snow laced Mount Washington behind it. Far to the south, was Mount Shaw in the Ossipee Range. I stood on the edge. A sharp caw directed my eyes to a peregrine falcon, flying by a hundred feet out from the ledge. The call was directed at me, an unexpected visitor. She was guarding her chicks, located on a tiny ledge somewhere on the cliff beneath my feet. I walked part way over to the west side of the summit ledge, and sat on a black steel bench. An inscription explained it was in memory of a mother who had passed on too early. Mount Sabattus seems to lend itself to memorials for those who once loved the place. There are two such benches, and a sealed plastic memento with photo and words on one of the old fire tower foundations. The mountain is owned by the state of Maine, and the trails are maintained by the Greater Lovell Land Trust. The Maine Bureau of Parks

Eben Lord family. Rooms are decorated in periods from 1818 to 1945. There is no charge for admission, but donations are accepted. Groups of more than six people should call ahead to insure that enough guides are on hand. The museum is located in Conway village, on Route 16, across from the fire station. Members of the historical society are welcome to call about serving as a guide, or as a greeter. For more information call (603) 4475551 on Tuesdays or Thursdays.

and Lands gave permission for the three personal remembrances on the summit, though it is unlikely they will give permission for more. Before leaving, I walked over to the four concrete fire tower foundations and read the memorial inscription for 19 year old Steven David Hawkey, who died on April 30, 2001 on Kezar Lake. “Steven was fishing in a small boat a half mile off shore with his older brother. When their boat floundered, they found themselves in 50 degree water with darkness approaching. After his old brother lost consciousness due to hypothermia, Steven swam him on his back a quarter mile to a man coming to help in a small one man kayak. Steven lifted his brother up, knowing there was only room for one, and demanded he take his brother. Steven stayed in the water, holding onto the back of the kayak. Shortly after, the kayaker saw Steven loose consciousness and slip under. He is remembered daily and sadly missed by his family.” I started along the descending loop trail, which traversed the edge of the cliff through the woods a few hundred feet to a great white quartz boulder, before turning north and descending. I paused on the luminous white boulder-- a great place to experience the present moment. Then I headed down in the shady woods, passing a beautiful cluster of purple violets. Nearing the bottom, I heard people with a dog starting up the trail. It was the perfect place to meet people after a renewing solitary hike.

from preceding page

During early summer, foraging males utter long bursts of vivid song. This bird is named for Scottish-American ornithologist and artist Alexander Wilson who named many of our warblers after initially sighting them. The very odd names we find for the woodland warblers are mostly due to this man, even if a species was just passing through at that moment on its way north in 1811. He couldn’t have known that then. Wilson, Scottish immigrant and self-taught naturalist, traveled throughout the Eastern and Southern United States, studying and documenting birds. Between 1808 and his death at age 47 in 1813, Wilson wrote, illustrated and published nine volumes of “American Ornithology; or The Natural History of the Birds of the United States.” On one of his many walkabouts, Wilson met and likely inspired a younger, up-and-coming naturalist and illustrator named Audubon in Kentucky in 1810. All these woodland warblers are neotropical migrants. The neo’ identifies them as birds of the “New world” of North and South America. In a sense, these are really tropical birds that spend a few months in the northern hemisphere, taking advantage of the summer abundance of insects and nesting opportunities in the boreal and sub-Arctic. They may spend a month or so in transit each way during migration, and a few months up there in summer, but

most of their lives are spent in lush tropical rain forests in Mexico and Central America. Sometimes, we only have a chance at seeing them while passing each way. They are already migrating back southward in August and September. This distinctive bird’s nest is usually on the ground at the base of a sapling or shrub, or sunken into the terrain, but occasionally one or two feet above ground in a bush or small tree. It is well concealed in moss or a grass hummock and is a large, bulky structure. This is constructed almost entirely of dried grasses, with some leaves and hair added over 4-5 days. The female parent incubates the two-to-seven (but most commonly four) eggs for eleven-to-fifteen days, starting the evening before the last egg is laid. Although only the female broods the nestlings, both parents feed and otherwise tend the young, which leave the nest after ten-to-eleven days. This species is sometimes parasitized by the brown-headed cowbird; the incidence of such parasitism is generally low but may be high in some areas. In favorable habitat, Wilson’s warblers may nest in loose colonies. Dave Eastman also broadcasts “Country Ecology” four times weekly over WMWV 93.5 fm. As Vice President of the Lakes Region Chapter/ASNH, he welcomes you to monthly programs at the Loon Center in Moultonborough. He is available at: www.countryecology. com for consultation.

Valley Green Tips

Melody Nester

Harnessing the rain You’ve probably had it with the rain in Mount Washington Valley. And I’m sure this is an understatement, but don’t curse the rainwater — harness it. There are several ways to harness rainwater, save money, beautify your yard and help the environment. The easiest technique is to buy or make a rain barrel, and position it under a downspout. A 50-plus gallon rain barrel can capture enough rainwater to quench the thirst of your plants when it’s sunny and dry, with possibly enough leftover to rinse the dust off your car. The rain barrel is an effective way to conserve water and save money on your water bills. Make sure your barrel includes a screen for leaves and mosquitoes and has a lock cover to prevent young children and small animals from drowning. A spigot at the base allows for easy water dispersement. Then there’s the “bioretention area” or rain garden that is positioned in a low area or depression in a yard. The rain garden collects rainwater runoff from roofs and paved areas, and allows it to recharge the groundwater supply by seeping naturally into the ground. This prevents stormwater runoff across hard surfaces

that could pick up pollutants — from organic particles and fertilizers to chemical residues — and funnel them into storm drains, streams, lakes and rivers. Because rain gardens are planted with an assortment of flowering native plants, adaptable to both wet and dry environments, they are attractive and easy-to-maintain. Additionally, these gardens attract beneficial wildlife including butterflies, dragonflies and birds, says Greg Bossart of Rock n Waters in Freedom. Mosquitoes are not usually a problem because of the beneficial wildlife eat mosquitoes, he says, and because the water seeps fairly quickly into the ground instead of pooling for long periods of time. Tips 1. You can get yourself a rain barrel at local garden centers or hardware stores, or search on line for instructions on how to make one. 2. To get a first-hand look at what a rain garden involves, check out the 80X20 foot garden that Mountain Garden Club is putting in at Children’s Unlimited at 182 West Main Street in Conway. You can even learn by doing by volunteering a little bit of time on the morning of Saturday, June

11 to plant the native shrubs and perennials that will comprise the rain garden. Start time is 9 a.m. RSVP to J Andrews or to Ralph Lutjen at 3. If you want go one step further and learn all of the ins and outs of planning and planting a rain garden on your property, the UNH Cooperative Extension is hosting a Rain Garden Workshop from 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Wednesday,

June 1 at the Urban Forestry Center in Portsmouth. A similar workshop is being planned for Carroll County in the fall. For more information, contact Deb Steven at UNH Cooperative Extension at or 679-5616. 4. Prefer to let someone else do the work? You can outsource a rain garden project to local landscape designers. Let it rain — some of the time — and sit back and enjoy the bounty.

Universalists renovate North Fryeburg church BY LEE GUERRINGUE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

FRYEBURG — After three years, renovations at the Universalist Church of North Fryeburg are complete. The church, dormant between 1960 and 2007, has a growing membership of 20 to 25 regular members, and last summer, regular services were started with Rev. Violet Eastman. The renovation project was started in 2007 when members of the community wanted to reestablish and renovate the church after decades of neglect. For 50 years the church was dormant except when it was used for a couple of weddings and one funeral. The last service before the renovations was held in 1960, when the church

closed due to lack of members and interest. Committing to the restoration, the church’s board of directors in 2007 collaborated with contractors. Through fund-raising and donations, the interior was redeveloped with a commitment to maintain the church’s originality. Care was taken to preserve the integrity of the building inside and out. Paint refreshed the windows, walls and pews. The curtains were replaced with new identical velvet, and the altar was restored. “The carpet looked like cloth sewn onto cardboard,” president of the Fryeburg Historical Society, Diane Jones, said. The exterior of the church was scraped and painted, and a new, efficient furnace was installed. The services are roughly 30 min-

A vacation Bible school will start this summer, and a replica railroad car, which is drawn by horses, will be making a return visit to the church on Aug. 27. The church will also be organizing an open house and yard sale. Two suppers are scheduled, a bean hole supper in July and an allyou-can-eat buffet in August. The community has also taken great interest in creating a cookbook and designing and selling note cards. The Universalist Church is much like the Unitarian Church. They merged in 1961. The Universalist Church is non-denominational.

By Holiday Mathis proud of now. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll take on a task that many have taken on before you. The predictability factor will work against you. So take control of the situation and execute the job in a way that is uniquely you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be dealing with shrewd players in a challenging game. You need an edge. Never let the others know fully what you’re up to. Keep them guessing about you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The clubs, leagues and organizations you belong to are sometimes more work than fun. Right now they’re all worthwhile, though, and you’ll be glad you made the choice to be a part of these groups. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have the right to be happy, not because you’ve earned it but because you were born with it, just like everyone else. You’ll enjoy life and share that enjoyment with others. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be stirred by an exciting wonder. The best part of this is that you don’t have to go to the Grand Canyon or the Egyptian pyramids to experience this wonder. It’s in the eyes of another person. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 28). You make highly original choices this year, which is why you repeatedly land in new and novel situations. Family makes you proud in the next six weeks. You’ll net a professional goal in July. August features improvements and additions to your team and exciting news, too. You’ll glide into an exclusive situation in September. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 1, 26, 48 and 9.

Cul de Sac

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You might not think that what you have to say is particularly profound, but it needs to be said and is, therefore, important. So plant yourself evenly on both feet and deliver the message. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Objects and people can’t bring you happiness, though you will have a great time pursuing a certain prize with others. Just don’t forget that the happiness comes from you, not the game you’re playing. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone needs a platonic friend who will stick by them through good times and bad. If you’ve let such a person drift out of touch, reel him or her back into your life. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You care tremendously about your interactions with others, and that sometimes wears you out and makes you dread social functions. Relax and enjoy solitude. Rest up, and you’ll be more in the mood to mingle next week. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When loved ones want to help you, let them do it. Pride could get in the way of some assistance this weekend, and that would be a shame. Gracious acceptance of help is a kind of gift you can give your people. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re more remarkable than you realize. Don’t shrink yourself to fit in with a smallminded group. Instead, find the people who are thinking and living on the same scale as you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are a part of a group and a partner in work, friendship, love or all of the above. But you are not defined by these roles. It’s what you do on your own to fulfill your soul’s purpose that you’ll be most

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 28, 2011— Page 43

Today is Saturday, May 28, the 148th day of 2011. There are 217 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On May 28, 1961, the human rights group Amnesty International had its beginnings in the form of an article by lawyer Peter Benenson that was published in the British newspaper The Observer. Titled “The Forgotten Prisoners,” the essay called for mobilizing public opinion to defend “prisoners of conscience” worldwide. On this date: In 1533, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, declared the marriage of England’s King Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn valid. In 1863, the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, made up of freed blacks, left Boston to fight for the Union in the Civil War. In 1892, the Sierra Club was organized in San Francisco. In 1918, the Battle of Cantigny (kahn-teeNYEE’) began during World War I as American troops captured the French town from the Germans. In 1934, the Dionne quintuplets — Annette, Cecile, Emilie, Marie and Yvonne — were born to Elzire Dionne at the family farm in Ontario, Canada. In 1959, the U.S. Army launched Able, a rhesus monkey, and Baker, a squirrel monkey, aboard a Jupiter missile for a suborbital flight which both primates survived. In 1972, Prince Edward, the Duke of Windsor, who had abdicated the English throne to marry Wallis Warfield Simpson, died in Paris at age 77. In 1985, David Jacobsen, director of the American University Hospital in Beirut, Lebanon, was abducted by pro-Iranian kidnappers (he was freed 17 months later). One year ago: President Barack Obama visited Grand Isle, La., where he personally confronted the spreading damage wrought by the crude gushing into the Gulf of Mexico — and the bitter anger rising onshore. Today’s Birthdays: Rockabilly singermusician Sonny Burgess is 82. Actress Carroll Baker is 80. Producer-director Irwin Winkler is 80. Actor John Karlen is 78. Basketball Hall-of-Famer Jerry West is 73. Actress Beth Howland is 70. Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani is 67. Singer Gladys Knight is 67. Actress-director Sondra Locke is 67. Singer Billy Vera is 67. Singer John Fogerty is 66. Actor Brandon Cruz is 49. Country singer Phil Vassar is 49. Actress Christa Miller is 47. Singer-musician Chris Ballew (Presidents of the USA) is 46. Rapper Chubb Rock is 43. Singer Kylie Minogue is 43. Actor Justin Kirk is 42. Television personality Elisabeth Hasselbeck is 34. Actor Jesse Bradford is 32. Actress Monica Keena is 32. Pop singer Colbie Caillat is 26. Actress Carey Mulligan is 26.

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-year-old girl in my first year of high school. I’m not sure what to do about boys or how to make friends. All I ever learned at home was what NOT to do. I’m not allowed to date until I’m 16, but I really like this boy in my math class. What should I do? I’m so confused. My parents have protected me against things for so long, and I’ve had to learn from my friends’ and my mistakes. I wonder sometimes if I have to be obedient to my parents or if I should make my own choices. Help! -- DATELESS AND CLUELESS IN NEVADA DEAR DATELESS: At 14 it’s normal to have a crush on a classmate. It’s also normal for your parents to want to protect you. You say you have had to learn from your friends’ and your own mistakes. That’s normal, too. It’s how we all learn about life. Until you’re old enough to date, become active in events at school. It’s a healthy way to make friends and learn social skills. And continue being obedient to your parents. That’s how teens build enough trust so that their parents gain the confidence to give them more freedom. DEAR ABBY: “Carl” and I have been married 23 happy years. He’s a great guy, an awesome dad to our teenage girls and an excellent provider. There’s only one problem. Lately he’s boring. Carl doesn’t have a physically demanding job, so he can’t blame it on being tired. I always make the plans for entertainment because if I didn’t, we’d never go anywhere or do anything. When we go out, I feel like he’s just along for the ride and would rather be home in front of the TV. I can see he tries to enjoy himself when we’re with friends, but when I ask him afterward, he says, “It was OK,” or, “They’re not my favorite people.” When I ask if he’d like to

plan the next outing, he says he’s happy just staying home. I work, go to school and have a busy life, but I need more in it and I’d like to include my husband. My friends are all couples so, naturally, I’d like to have Carl at my side. Whatever I suggest for fun, he’s never enthusiastic about any of it. If I have to stay home one more Friday night and watch a movie on pay-per-view, I’ll scream! Please help. -- TIRED OF FRIDAY NIGHT BLUES DEAR TIRED: You say “lately” your husband is boring. What was he like before that? A man who is listless, lethargic and disengaged should see his doctor to make sure there is nothing physically wrong and if he could be suffering from a mild depression. Suggest he have a physical and, if possible, go with him so you can voice your concerns. If nothing is wrong with Carl, you two need to find some activity you can do together that you both will enjoy -- something that doesn’t involve either television or people your husband doesn’t particularly relate to. DEAR ABBY: My son’s fiancee doesn’t care what I wear to their wedding, or what color it is. She says she “knows” I’ll wear something great. The wedding will be in September in the afternoon. It should be warm then. They have chosen bright green and bright baby blue as their colors. I don’t want to wear either one. Would an ivory or champagne dress be appropriate? I was raised “old school” and need to know. -- MOTHER OF THE GROOM DEAR MOTHER OF THE GROOM: Wearing ivory might not be advisable because it is so close to white. However, a dress in a champagne color or pale blue or pale green would be acceptable.

Historical society meets June 8

At the selectmen’s meeting on Wednesday, it was decided that a letter would be sent to Time-Warner to complain that the number of channels keep being reduced while the rates continue to rise. Sara Young-Knox announced that the Albany Historical Society would hold its June 8 meeting at the Albany Chapel at noon. Since discussion at their meetings often revolve around specific articles kept in the Chapel, it was thought best to have meetings there to show rather than describing the articles. Curtis Coleman reported on some roads in town; specifically Bald Hill which needs some replacement rocks along a culvert as well as replacement of missing delineators by Tin Mountain and the resealing of the road in Wildwood after the work done there by PSNH. Additionally it was decided that the Forest Service would have to put up a bond before they begin timber harvesting near Drake Hill Road. There is concern about the safety of the bridge and possible damage to the road from the logging trucks. The board discussed the daily

closing of Bald Hill Road from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the months of June, July and possibly a few days in August for the wastewater project headed by the Conway Village Fire District. The town offices will be closed on Monday in observance of Memorial Day. The Lora Pierce Johnson Committee met last week and chose two Kennett High School graduates for scholarships. Their names will be announced when they receive their awards. The Civic Group decided on a date for the annual turkey dinner to support the work of the Lora Pierce Johnson Committee. Tin Mountain: Thursday at 7 p.m., Adair Mulligan will lead viewers on a tour through the scenic landscape of the Connecticut River, the largest river in New England. It is the only watershedbased national fish and wildlife refuge. Next Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. meet at the Grant’s parking lot in Glen for a leisurely paddle of the marshes and coves around Pontook. Bring your binoculars, water and a snack. Please see ALBANY page 53

Lord’s Hill Geranium, Bake and Yard Sale is today prior to the Civil War. Selectmen’s meeting news: It seems vandals destroyed the new locking system at the transfer station, said system employed due to theft of metals from the metal pile during periods when the station was closed. All taxpayers benefit from the money raised through the town’s sale of scrap metal. These thefts are thefts from all. Effingham Fire and Rescue Chief Randy Burbank continues to apply for grants to help sustain, improve and support our fire and rescue departments, and continues to track down equipment belonging to the town’s department still in possession of former members. Thank you Randy. A bit of complicated news: The New Hampshire department of revenue (DRA) has been granted the power to require towns to either hire or elect an auditor. There are guidelines promulgated by the Government Accounting Standards Board which DRA has been granted the right to apply to towns as small as ours. The long and short of this is money

and taxes. Selectman Slack cast a discerning eye over the situation and put forth the adopted proposal that the supervisors of the checklist appoint an auditor until one can be elected, the upshot of which is basic adherence to the new RSAs and overall lower cost to the town. For more information stop by at a regular meeting and ask. White Mountain Survey will be hired at an estimated cost of approximately $3,500 per year to keep a professional eye on the work being done over the next three or four years on the reconstruction of three miles of Town House Road. There was some discussion on tax monies raised for the first year of this three or four-year project. Selectman Swanik said she would be gathering figures and required data necessary for the town to receive a free energy audit for our municipal offices. The town’s new webpage is being worked on. see EFFINGHAM page 55

It can be reported that last week’s historical society program on really old gravestones and burial yards was a hit with the number of folks attending requiring extra chairs to be placed out: an occurrence, according to one society member that has never before happened. Your reporter learned a thing or two himself; one being what a Wolf-Stone’ is and the other that presenter Glen Knoblock could probably speak on the anthropological and artistic aspects of old gravestones for over any amount of allotted time; this is definitely a man who loves his work. Oh yes, your reporter also wants to commend the person who made the Martha Washington cake, it was delicious; empty plates would indicate that all the provided home-baked refreshments also more than passed muster: concerns relating to waist size prohibited a complete sampling by your reporter. Many thanks to those in the Historical society who organized the event. The next historical society event will be July 15: Hill Country Abandonment, exploring the depopulation of rural New Hampshire

She was there as a member of ServiceLink. This annual conference features speakers in various areas dealing with all aspects of life for seniors and there plenty of exhibitors to learn from as well. Happy birthday to my husband, Stan. He’ll celebrate on Tuesday, but I’ll not tell how many years. Finally it’s been dry enough to cut the lawn. A few more rainy days and I would have lost the dog in the high grass.

Lessons We Learn When Raising Pets Pet owners love their pets. Our pets bring us great joy and comfort and sometimes can even challenge us. But our pets have many lessons to teach us and our children. Raising a pet can present many life lessons for our children provided they have the supervision of a caring adult. Caring and responsibility immediately jump to mind but with other opportunities pets can help us learn more about problem solving, sharing, empathy, communication and more. 4-H, which has built its reputation around raising and showing farm animals, can also provide youth opportunities to learn more about their pets, and bring out many different learning opportunities. Locally we have horse, rabbit, dog and livestock clubs, but we’re more than cows and cooking. If you already have a family pet or are considering getting a pet for your child, here are some things to consider. Consider your lifestyle and what kind of new pet will fit in. Do you want an indoor or outdoor pet? Do you have appropriate space for the pet you want? How much time will you have daily to

care for your pet? How much will it cost to feed and care for? Do the animals normal habits fit in with your family lifestyle? Take time to learn about your chosen pet. Go to the library and get some books on caring for your pet. Remember a hermit crab has very different needs than a Great Dane. Talk to experts, find a reputable pet store or breeder or ask a vet. Once you have made a decision on what kind of pet you will be getting, you need to do some homework before the pet arrives. What kind of space will it need? Will you need tanks, crates or cages? What other accessories will you need? What will food cost? Learn about the qualities of your pet and how to select and choose a healthy, well-bred individual. Make an initial visit to the vet to make sure you start off on the right foot and have all its vaccinations up to date. One of the best parts of owning a pet is sharing it with others. It can often be great fun to get together with other pet owners and share stories about your pets. In 4-H members regularly get together at club meetings to learn

more about their pets, or other projects and to share what they are doing with their pet. Those who like to show pets may also practice their show skills. This summer 4-H in Carroll County is holding an open pet show for any child who has a pet. On July 30, at Carroll County Farm Day held at the county farm in Ossipee there will be youth pet show where kids can bring almost any kind of pet to show and share. Kids will have the opportunity to show in one of three categories: dogs, large animals (which can be anything from sheep, to horses to giraffes), and small animals (which can include mice, birds, fish lizards etc.) the only limitation is that no animals found and taken from the wild are allowed. On recommendation from the state veterinary’s office all mammals showing in 4-H shows need to have a rabies shot. The pet show will be in a show and tell format where each participating youth will show their pets to a panel of judges and tell them about it giving information such see next page

For more information or a complete set of pet show rules and guidelines, contact the 4-H office at 447-3834.

Lord’s Hill, this Saturday, the 28th, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.: It is worth stopping by. Much has been said in the last couple of columns about the Geranium, Bake and Yard Sale being held at Lord’s Hill, all you have to do now is remember to show up, have a good time, spend a little to support the group’s effort to preserve the old meeting house any maybe drop a little extra into the donation box. We’ll see you there. Flowers, food and stuff, what could be better?

keep a schedule, speaking to others and telling them about your pet and other important skills that we will use though out life that really make a difference. Perhaps we can find some kids and parents interested in starting up a club to meet monthly and share and learn about caring for different pets. Claes Thelemarck is the 4-H Youth Development Educator with the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension in Carroll County. For questions about the pet show, 4-H clubs, afterschool programs or youth development he can be reached at 447-3834. Effingham’s annual social season will truly begin this weekend when the Grange opens its doors this Saturday. Can you smell homemade rhubarb muffins in your future: or for that matter homemade baked beans, pies, fruit breads, fudge, just all manner of tasty treats? There is a word, convivial,’ which perfectly describes the atmosphere inside the old Grange Hall on Saturday’s during spring and summer. So stop by this Saturday, the 28th, and add a bit of yourself to the mix. It’s a fine thing to do.

Memorial Day Craft Fair on this weekend Last week I ended the column by asking you a question. What is Crokinole? I’m not sure if anyone out there discovered an answer so, just in case, here it is: Crokinole is a board game that was probably invented in the mid-1800s somewhere in either Canada or the northern United States. The game is played on a round wooden board with a recessed center hole that is protected by pegs. Object of the game — score points by flicking wooden discs at the center hole. Now in case you think I’m making this all up I will give you TWO web sites you can look up: www. which boasts a Crokinole pro shop or woodgames where you can learn how to build your own board. If you figure out the rules & find a board, let me know. I’ll try anything once. Don’t forget our annual Memorial Day Craft Fair starts this weekend. This is a two day event starting on Saturday May 28 and ending Sunday afternoon May 29 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Crafters will be coming from all over New England and we know you will find some great gift ideas for that upcoming special occasion. There is plenty of street parking or you can park in the town lot adjacent to the center and stroll over to the Gibson front lawn. It’s a fun time and a great way to support the center. Hope you’ll join us. As National Seniors Month draws to a close Fran wished to mention two

TGIF Book group reading ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ Book discussion June 1 at North Conway Library

CONWAY — The North Conway Library’s TGIF Book Group is reading “In the Bleak Midwinter” by Julia Spencer-Fleming and will discuss it on Wednesday, June 1 at 10:30 a.m. at the library. This is an open group. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are a library member and have finished the book. “In the Bleak Midwinter” takes place in the small town of Millers Kill in upstate New York. Newlyordained Episcopal priest Clare Fergusson is on her first assignment after having been a helicopter pilot in the army for years. When a newborn baby is abandoned on the church stairs and a young mother is brutally murdered, Clare has to pick her way through the secrets and silence that shadow that town like the ever-present Adirondack mountains. As the days dwindle, Clare will need all her faith, tenacity, and courage to stand fast against the killer. An integral side story is revolving about Clare’s relationship with local Chief of Police Russ Van Alstyne. The two seem to develop a growing attraction to each other

even though the police chief is married. “In The Bleak Midwinter” has been described as “superb” by Library Journal and as a “riveting page-turner from start to finish” by Publishers Weekly (starred review). The Washington Post says, “Terrific action scenes ... what really distinguishes In the Bleak Midwinter, however, is the author’s skillful portrayal of her protagonist’s inner conflict.” Julia Spencer-Fleming was the featured speaker at the library’s author luncheon on May 12. Copies of “In the Bleak Midwinter” are available at the library. The TGIF Book Group is an open book discussion group that reads both fiction and nonfiction and meets on the first Friday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the library in North Conway Village. Please note that the June meeting is on a Wednesday. Afterwards, the TGIF Book Group will go in its summer hiatus until October. Contact the North Conway Library at 356-2961 for more information or to reserve your copy.

Telling Tails hosts seminar with animal behavior consultant Myrna Milani FRYEBURG — Dr. Myrna Milani, DVM will present the seminar “Why Dogs Do What They Do,” on Sunday, June 5, at Telling Tails Training Center in Fryeburg, Maine. Dr. Milani is an author, veterinarian and animal behavior consultant. Her interests are in the study of the relationship between humans and animals, as it affects the health and behavior of both. In addition to writing books, she has been published in a number of professional periodicals. She speaks regularly to a wide variety of professional and private organizations, and has appeared on television and radio including, “Today,” “Regis and Kathy Lee,” “Good Morning New York,” and the “NBC Nightly News.” Her television credits also include an hour show on feline behavior for ESPN. Milani will present the seminar, “Why Dogs Do What They Do,” in two parts. Attendees may sign up for the morning session alone, or for both the morning and afternoon sessions. Ethology, the study of the behavior of animals in their environments, delves into the “why” behind all animal behavioral displays. The morning session summarizes six ethological concepts of particular importance to our understanding of companion dog behavior. In this ses-

sion Dr. Milani will cover general animal behavior. She will talk about how dogs normally establish and protect their territories, find food and water, court, mate, reproduce, raise their young, play and how all of these affect a pet’s behavior and relationships with their humans. She will explore those basics and discuss their role in normal and problem canine behavior. The afternoon session will explore the concepts of the behavioral priorities covered in the morning session, and using canine aggression as the example, will demonstrate how all of the concepts work together to provide a comprehensive view of a behavioral issue. This enhanced view of problem behavior can help properly diagnosis and create a well balanced treatment plan. Failure to address underlying causes of behavior problems may result in the behavior persisting, stopping only to start again, or being replaced by another, possibly more serious problem. In the afternoon session attendees will break up into groups and work on an aggression case study. For more information on Dr. Myrna Milani and on the seminar, “Why Dogs Do What They Do,” visit or call (207) 642-3693.

To buy or to rent? BY MARY CLEVELAND

“To buy or to rent?” As a real estate agent dealing in both rentals and sales, this is a question many of my customers pose to me. Recent graduates, young couples, relocating professionals and others have all asked themselves this question at one point or another. While buying and renting each offer benefits, the decision to purchase a home as opposed to renting is complex and based on a number of factors. According to a survey from October 2010 from the National Association of Realtors, nearly eight out of 10 respondents believe buying a home today is a good financial decision. However, the rise in foreclosures and the current difficulties in obtaining credit has caused many former or prospective homeowners to seriously consider renting. The question that remains is what is best for you at this current juncture in your life? Deciding to purchase a home remains the biggest financial decision many people will ever make. Before making the jump into homeownership, potential home buyers should consider the “soft” lifestyle issues as well as the “hard” financial ones. The following lifestyle questions will assist you when determining if buying a home is the right decision for you: 1. Do you have a steady income? At or near the top of every potential home buyers mind is whether or not they can afford to buy a home right now. Unlike the days of “easy credit," just a few years ago when there was a mortgage for nearly anyone, today buying a home requires stable, documented income and a good credit history. Don’t hesitate to speak with a real estate professional even before you’re ready to buy a home. A real estate professional can help you answer and uncover questions about the cost of homeownership. If you decide you are ready to buy, the next step is to talk to your bank or mortgage broker to see you qualify for a mortgage and, if so, how much you are able to borrow? 2. Do you plan to stay in a home for an extended period of time? Despite the declining home prices of the past few years, with proper planning, a home purchase has historically proven to be one of the strongest investments you can make. Homes typically appreciate in value over time while the owner builds his or her equity through monthly mortgage payments. If you anticipate staying in a home for only a few years, it doesn’t necessarily mean buying is not for you, but you are less likely to see a significant financial return on your investment. 3. Do you plan to sell a house in order to buy a house? A local real estate professional can help you understand current local market conditions and will help you make smart decisions when listing your home, helping you get the highest possible price for your property. If you don’t currently own a home, now is a good time to buy with very low mortgage rates for those who qualify and a high inventory of homes to choose from. However, if you have credit issues you are working on fixing, or have not been at your job very long, it may be best to rent for now so that when the time comes to buy you will have less trouble qualifying for a mortgage and will be able to take advantage of low interest rates. see CLEVELAND page 63

4. How do your other options compare? For renters, calculating monthto-month housing expenses is as easy as inquiring about the monthly rent and average utilities. The calculation becomes more complicated when considering the monthly cost of owning a home. You will be responsible for property taxes, maintenance and upkeep and homeowner’s insurance but you will also be building equity. There are also tax advantages to owning a home. A real estate professional can help you understand the full range of financial considerations when buying or renting. Deciding whether to buy or rent is a difficult decision and there is no one right answer for everyone. Each individual should take the time to look at their personal and financial situation to decide what will work best for their needs and lifestyle.

Carroll County home sales up 12.7 percent through April The number of Carroll County home sales are up 12.7 percent this year through April compared with 2010. But prices for local residential properties have slipped 7.4 percent through April compared to the same time last year. This is the first major drop in local prices since the market stabilized in the fourth quarter of 2010. New Hampshire Realtors sold 809 homes in April at a median price of $199,900. Both numbers represent declines from the same period a year ago, when the market was inflated due to the then-imminent expiration of the home-buyer tax credit. Contracts needed to be signed by April 30, 2010, in order for buyers to qualify for the $8,000 tax credit, resulting in a temporary sellers’ market. As a result, April 2010 sales jumped by 41 percent compared to April 2009, and the median sales price increased by 8 percent. So it came as no surprise to the state’s Realtors that this year, without the benefit of the tax credit, the April market normalized, with unit sales decreasing by 23 percent com-

pared to a year prior, and median prices falling 8 percent. “As we continue to say, it’s important not to get too optimistic or pessimistic based on data from a month or two, particularly when the equation still includes sales sparked by the tax credit,” said New Hampshire Association of Realtors president Tom Riley, a 35-year veteran of the real estate industry and president of Riley Enterprises in Bedford. “The numbers we’re looking at now include 2010 apples and 2011 oranges.” Riley pointed to the fact that home sales have actually risen in each of the first four months of this year – from 543 (January) to 578 (February) to 764 (March) to 809 (April). He also noted that the 809 sales this April represent a 9 percent increase from those in April 2009. “It just takes one or two fluky months in the middle to skew a trend line,” he said. “With the tax credit set to expire, that’s what happened in 2010.” “We are doing much better here in the Mount Washington Valley than

other areas of New Hampshire. I am happy with the increase in units sold and think that the drop in April prices has more to do with the mix of sales, than a market trend.” said Paul Mayer, owner of Black Bear Realty and president of the White Mountain Board of Realtors, “Condo sales have been very strong. Units sold, year to date, are up 10 percent and the median prices for condos is up a very strong 17.9 percent. "Traditionally home sales will follow the condo market," Mayer added. "This remains a healthy market for vacation second homes and active retirees. I think this Summer will be very good.” Riley again cited factors such as low interest rates, low prices and high inventory in saying the buyers’ market continues to provide an opportunity for increased activity in the coming months. “It will be the second half of this year before we really have a true indication of the market’s direction,” Riley said, “but in the big picture I believe it’s fair to say we’re in a period of stabilization.”

Shortsale or foreclosure: What’s my best option? BY BILL BARBIN We certainly have our share of short sales and foreclosures in the Mount Washington Valley, but it is fair to say that we have nothing close to the prevalence that exists in other, not so fortunate states such as Arizona, Florida and Texas. If you do, however, find yourself facing that situation, there are a number of factors to consider before making your decision. It is rarely just a cut and dried choice. A lot of the decision is based on your family’s personal situation, future financial plans, social and environmental factors, etc.. Let’s take a look at a couple of these that you may wish to consider. The first thing to consider is the impact this decision will have on your ability to get a mortgage in the future. There are many different lending institutions, each with their own requirements when it comes to your ability to obtain a mortgage in the future. However, a common trend is to be much more lenient with someone working through a short sale rather than letting the house go to foreclosure. As an example, the

Fannie Mae site, Know Your Options, explains that you may be able to get a Fannie Mae mortgage to purchase a home sooner (in as little as two years) than if you went through foreclosure (at least seven years). In a rapidly changing environment, make sure you get the latest information available from the actual lending institution that you will be using. Second is the immediate impact on your credit score. There has been much dialogue on this issue. The question is whether or not a foreclosure will have a more severe impact on your credit score than a short sale. A recent FICO study sheds needed light on this question. In the study, they show that there tends to be very little difference in impact on your credit score whether you choose a short sale or a foreclosure. Clearly neither one is desirable, but it doesn’t seem that you need to sweat the difference that much based solely on your credit score. The last item we’ll talk about today is the impact on your family during the move. Usually a family that finds itself in this situation is already experiencing major financial difficulties. This may be putting immense pressure on both parents

and the children. If you allow your home to go to foreclosure, you pack up and move, leaving it vacant or you stay put and anxiously wait for an official to knock on your door demanding you to move. That added burden would no doubt cause even more stress for a family. In the short sale process, you typically get to work WITH the bank and pre-determine the day you will move. The new purchasers usually move in the same day. Your family has the pleasure of moving with a plan and you don’t leave the neighborhood with a vacant house to deal with. There is a level of dignity in this type of move that does not always take place in a foreclosure situation. The sense of control that this puts back in the family’s hands tends to mitigate some of the stress. At the end of the day, a short sale may be the better, less painful option for your family. It is always still best to get professional advice if faced with this decision. Both your lender and a Realtor could provide valuable advice for you and ideally steer you in the best direction.

From the time he was very young, Mike Holmes, who grew up in Toronto's East End neighborhood, watched his engineer father work on their home and learned the tricks of the trade. Even when the younger Holmes was just 6 he rewired their house under his dad's supervision. When he wasn't working on the house, he was taking apart his toys or building a tree house. He progressed to his own renovation company that built custom homes. Years ago saw the wisdom of green home building for the benefit of the planet, people's health and a home's durability. Along the way, his straightforward advice and outgoing personality landed him his own show on HGTV, "Holmes on Homes," and the new spin-off, "Holmes Inspection," and he's authored several bestselling books with the "Make It Right" moniker — the series title came from one of his father's bits of advice about

trying to get things right the first time — including the new "Make It Right: Inside Home Renovation" (Time Home Entertainment, 2011). We recently caught up with Holmes following his keynote at the 2011 National Green Building Conference and Expo in Salt Lake City, to talk about green building and home improvements. Following are his edited responses. Question: How’d you get interested in going green? Answer: I've always been interested in building the best way possible, given the technology available. As new and better ways of building develop, I'm interested in using them. Building more sustainably — with less waste and more energy efficiency — is the only way now to go because it's better for you, your family and the environment. It's also a way for your home to pay you back. Q: You often talk about “highsee next page

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, May 28, 2011— Page 67

from preceding page

performance” green homes. What does that mean? A: It means it has a solid, tight building envelope, particularly on the exterior, and is "thermally broken." That means there's no air leakage, which could lead to energy loss, condensation and mold. "High-performance" also means high efficiency in terms of appliances and energy savings, or how much it costs to operate your home. Q: Tell us about Holmes Homes, your new community of eco-friendly, sustainable homes in Alberta, Canada. What makes them sustainable? Are they affordable for “average” folks? A: There's no reason a home can't be made green and still be affordable. It's about construction methods and the footprint. People need to be more aware how over-sized houses are wasteful and inefficient. Holmes Homes that are going up in Alberta are built to be durable and are being constructed from concrete, a green, lasting material. It will save in the end, since you're building with better products, especially insulation and mold-resistant drywall. You're going to pay now or later! If you build better, you're more likely to stay. Q: What are easy ways homeowners can go green? A: It's a lot easier to go green if you're starting from the ground up. But there are things you can do to improve an existing home's energy efficiency and greenness. Homeowners should spend money first on the outside structure for protection — many things they can't see but which are critical to efficiency, longevity and healthfulness — rather than initially on interior finishes, what I refer to as the mascara or lipstick. What's key on the outside? Good insulation in the basement and attic; well-insulated windows, doors and roofing to reduce solar heat gain and heat loss in cold months — I like a fire-resistant metal roof, for example; the best long-lasting cladding, whether brick or vinyl; a solid foundation that doesn't get wet; [and] ventilation to improve indoor air quality. It's important to me that whatever you

put on or in your house will be durable — that it will last a long time without needing to be replaced. That will save resources and keep waste from landfills. Q: What are some less important green strategies? A: I think there's a lot of "greenwashing." People are fooled into thinking something is green when it's not much different than what's been around. People need to educate themselves and find out where and how products were made, what they contain, where they were shipped from, how they were used, and how they'll go back to the earth. The effect of installing bamboo flooring is less important than making sure you've got no air leakage that wastes energy. I'm very careful about shows that people should watch; they often give the wrong information. Q: So many homeowners still seem fearful of green because of the perceived extra expense ... A: If you're planning to stay in your home, you'll make back your money. But, when people flip houses for profit, they aren't interested in investing in their home or environment. You generally spend five to 15 percent more to go green, but green varies. Document what you've done for resale. Q: How do they calculate payback? A: It depends on the investment. Solar panels are more expensive up front than low- or no-VOC paint. In some areas, you can lease solar panels and cut energy costs. You also may be able to sell extra power back to the grid and make money. Q: What about a national green standard? A: I think a national green standard — similar to the Eco-logo or Green Seal or Energy Star programs — will provide a consistent, legitimate, tested and proven standard that will help homeowners know what's truly green. The program could be adapted across the continent to allow for different climatic zones and take into account different issues that occur in cold or temperate zones. When it comes to green and houses, it's not "one size fits all." It's easy to get lost in all the conflicting claims and see HOLMES page 68

information. I would love to see this, but it will take work to make builders and the government get on board. We're working on it, and homeowners should demand it. Q: Your new show, “Holmes Inspection,” informs viewers about home inspections. What viewers are learning? A: [They're learning] why a good home inspection is worth every penny. There are so many parts of a home that are hidden, but an experienced professional can spot clues that indicate there might be hidden problems or problems deliberately concealed. But it's a business that's not regulated by the government, so anyone can call themselves a home inspector. All you need is a business card and flashlight - and even the flashlight is optional! It's a new industry, so there are lots of cowboys out there and no sheriffs. Until government starts to demand qualifications and licensing, it's up to consumers to be aware of these issues and ask questions, especially about mold, termites [and] asbestos. © CTW Features

Strong ARM tactics: Adjustable-rate mortgages re-emerging with more consumer safeguards BY ERIK MARTIN CTW FEATURES

Scorned during the housing bust, adjustable-rate mortgages are re-emerging — this time with more consumer safeguards in place Immediately following the mortgage market meltdown, adjustable-rate mortgages were considered toxic relics of a broken system operated by lenders run amok. But today, with greater safeguards in place and a bigger initial rate disparity compared to fixed-rate loans than in the past, ARMs are again appearing as an option for many borrowers. ARMs all but disappeared by 2009, when they comprised just 3 percent of the market — a steep drop from the boom period of several years ago, when about seven in 10 mortgages were ARMs. But the numbers are climbing: Today, 5 percent of all mortgages are ARMs, and Freddie Mac predicts that ARMs will account for 10 percent of all mortgages by the end of the year. Those looking to buy or refinance in 2011 are taking a closer look at ARMs because they offer potential for savings in the short term. Consider that at the time of this writing the initial rate on a 5/1 ARM (in which the rate is fixed for the first five years, after which time it can go up) is below 3.5 percent versus nearly 5 percent for a 30-year fixedrate mortgage, which equates to an approximate monthly savings of $176 over the first 60 months of the note. Today's ARMs aren't much different than those of years past, with a few exceptions. There is no longer a pre-payment penalty; borrowers have to demonstrate they have the money and credit history to

truly afford the home (meaning no more "no-doc" and "no-income" loans); an interest-only type ARM now costs extra; and because mortgages are no longer controlled by private investors Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac provide a safeguard that enables troubled borrowers to turn to the government for assistance. Some may say the ideal candidate for an ARM is someone who doesn't plan to remain at the property for more than a few years — such as a professional whose job relocates them every several years, but Bill Higgins, chief lending officer with ING Direct, Philadelphia, will tell you that an ARM makes sense for many homeowners — not just those who are regularly on the move. "The average homeowner keeps a mortgage for about five to seven years. At that point, they either move or refinance. Mortgages that are fixed for five to seven years consistently offer a lower interest rate than a 30-year fixed rate mortgages. So why should homeowners feel compelled to overspend on a mortgage they won't likely keep?" Higgins asks. "Today's economic reality is vastly different than the 1940s, when the 30-year was created. Most consumers don't need to follow in their parent's footsteps by paying for the stability of a 30-year fixed loan through front loaded interest costs and a slow buildup of equity." But for those who do opt for an ARM, it's important to understand the possible future implications. ARMs have adjustment caps that limit how much the rate can fluctuate at the first adjustment time and all subsequent periods, which protects the borrower from payment shock. However, at the end of the initial fixed-rate period, and at every adjustment period, the interest rate can vary based on two factors: the index and the margin (the percentage that can be added to the index). ARM rate adjustments usually are based see next page

on a published index, such as the London Interbank Offered Rate and the U.S. Constant Maturity Treasury. Because these indexes mirror current financial market conditions, your ARM interest rate can potentially increase at each adjustment period. So be aware that if, for example, the LIBOR index rises, your rate in the corresponding adjustable period may also rise. And that will mean a higher monthly mortgage bill. When it comes to predicting where ARM rates will be in the coming years, there's no crystal ball, says Jim Schmidt, sales manager, Poli Mortgage Group, Norwood, Mass. "The basic industry consensus today is that rates have bottomed out recently and will continue to climb in the coming years," Schmidt says. "However, specific worldly incidents that affect many different things may also send rates in different directions." © CTW Features

The economy is wavering, but does Washington notice? BY DAVID LEONHARDT NEW YORK TIMES

The latest economic numbers have not been good. Jobless claims rose last week, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Another report showed that economic growth at the start of the year was no faster than the Commerce Department initially reported — “a real surprise,” said Ian Shepherdson of High Frequency Economics. Perhaps the most worrisome number was the one Macroeconomic Advisers released on Wednesday. That firm tries to estimate the growth rate of the current quarter in real time, and it now says annualized second-quarter growth is running at only 2.8 percent, up from 1.8 percent in the first quarter. Not so long ago, the firm’s economists thought second-quarter growth would be almost 4 percent. An economy that is

growing this slowly will not add jobs quickly. For the next couple of months, employment growth could slow from about 230,000 recently to something like 150,000 jobs a month, only slightly faster than normal population growth. That is certainly not fast enough to make a big dent in the still huge number of unemployed people. Are any policy makers paying attention? When the economy weakened in the first quarter, Ben S. Bernanke, the Federal Reserve chairman, and Obama administration officials said the slowdown was just a blip and growth would soon pick up. Today, many Wall Street economists are saying much the same thing: any day now, things will improve. Maybe they will. But

the history of financial crises shows that they produce weak, uneven recoveries, with unemployment remaining high for years. That history also shows that aggressive government action — the kind of action Washington took in 2008 and 2009, but not for most of 2010 — can make the situation much better than it otherwise would be. The latest signs of weakness suggest that policy makers remain too sanguine. It is easy to see how the rest of 2011 could end up disappointing, much as 2010 did. For one thing, there are specific forces holding back growth. Oil prices, though down in the last few weeks, are still 40 percent higher than a year ago and continue to siphon money away from the American economy to overseas economies. When I filled my gas

tank last weekend, it cost $74, more than I think I have ever paid. The housing market also remains in terrible shape. Europe is still struggling with its debt troubles. State and local governments continue to cut jobs. These specific problems worsen the broader insecurity of both households and business executives — insecurity that is typical in the wake of a financial crisis. Long after the crisis itself is over, businesses are slow to hire and quick to fire. Thursday’s report on new jobless claims showed that they rose by 10,000, to 424,000, which is not a number associated with a solid recovery. “Labor market gains may be faltering somewhat,” Joshua Shapiro, chief United States economist at MFR, a New York research firm, wrote to cli-

ents after the report’s release. For households, already coping with miserly wage growth, that is another reason not to spend. The Commerce Department’s updated gross domestic product figures showed that consumer spending grew at an annual inflation-adjusted rate of only 2.2 percent in the first quarter, not the 2.7 percent rate the department initially reported. The economy does still have some bright spots, and they could grow in coming months, just as policy makers and private forecasters are, once again, predicting. If North Africa and the Middle East do not become more chaotic, oil prices may continue falling. Vehicle production will probably pick up as the parts shortsee ECONOMY page 73

It might be easier if you just paid cash for that vacation house. There is loan money available for second-home purchases, but expect bigger down payments, higher interest rates and other standards tighter than on a principal residence — and those standards are tight already. In addition, there are quirks specific to vacation markets. Vacation-home purchases accounted for 10 percent of home sales last year, according to a National Association of Realtors survey released this spring. Investment purchases accounted for 17 percent — but sometimes the line between the two is a bit blurry. That’s down sharply from the height of the real estate boom in 2005, when vacation and investment sales accounted for 40 percent combined. Then, “there was virtually no difference in underwriting for vacation homes versus owner-occupied homes,” said Guy Cecala, the publisher of Inside Mortgage Finance. “That’s something that’s changed dramatically. The days of being able to buy a vacation home with little or no money down are over.” Loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration with down payments of as little as 3.5 percent aren’t

available to vacation-home buyers. That means 20 percent for deals that meet stringent requirements of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. For loans that don’t fit — for instance, that are bigger than the government ceilings, which vary by county — down payments can be higher. Kevin Santacroce, an executive vice president and the chief lending officer of Bridgehampton National Bank on Long Island, said that for the jumbo loans his bank writes, down payments are “closer to 25 percent, maybe 30 percent.” In Suffolk County, a jumbo loan is more than $729,750, among the nation’s highest. (As Santacroce points out, that’s the loan amount, not the purchase amount; still, it’s a rare house in the Hamptons that would fall into the non-jumbo category.) Thirty percent also seems to be the “comfort zone” this year for down payments in the Jersey Shore towns where Michael Loundy, a broker at Seaside Realty, works. “You can get 20 percent down,” he said, “but the buyer has to look very strong with incomedebt ratios.” Pinning down the details of a loan is challenging, Loundy said. For instance, during the loan approval process, exact terms may shift — a rate can go up one-eighth or onesee VACATION HOME page 74

ECONOMY from page 71

ages caused by the Japanese earthquake end. The falling dollar will continue to help American exporters, as well as any domestic businesses that compete with foreign importers. But there is no doubt that the economy has performed considerably worse in the last few months than most policy makers expected. The situation is now uncomfortably similar to last year’s, when the economy sped up in the first few months only to stall in the spring and summer. The most sensible response for Washington would be to begin thinking more seriously about taking out an insurance policy on the recovery. The Fed could stop worrying so much about inflation, which remains historically low, and look at how else it might encourage spending. As Bernanke has said before, the Fed “retains considerable power” to lift growth. The White House and Congress, meanwhile, could begin talking about extending last year’s temporary extension of business tax credits, household tax cuts and jobless benefits beyond Dec. 31. It would be easy enough to pair such an extension with longer-term deficit reduction. Any temporary measures will eventually need to lapse, of course. But the current moment remains a textbook time to use them — when the economy is struggling to emerge from the aftermath of a terrible recession. The one thing not to do is to turn to deficit reduction too quickly after a crisis, as Europe is painfully learning. Almost four years after the mortgage market first began to quiver and unemployment began to rise, Americans are understandably eager for good economic news. But wishing for it doesn’t make it so. You have to wonder whether the people in Washington have learned that lesson yet.

Wright Realty a top performer among Coldwell Banker affiliates PARSIPANNY, N.J. Coldwell Banker Wright Realty of Conway ranked No. 18 in performance out of 884 North American Coldwell Banker affiliate offices during the month of April 2011. The firm was recognized for being in the top 20 offices that fall in the category of one to 10 sales associates. “It’s an honor to rank in the top 20 out of nearly 900 offices of our size,” said Rose Robinson, one of three principals at Coldwell Banker Wright Realty. “During the downturn we’ve been experiencing for the last few years, we’ve gone through every facet of our business and made tremendous improvements. Now, it’s really paying off.” Says Lindsey Maihos, another principal, “We’ve made great strides even in a difficult economy. But it’s also apparent that the local market is improving. This is generally a slow period for real estate sales in this area. It’ll be interesting to see what summer and fall bring. That’s when the local market is at its peak.” “Home sales of most of our associates, and my own sales, have improved substantially over the same period last year,” says Antonella Bliss, principal of Coldwell Banker Wright Realty. “This is a fantastic trend for us and the whole valley. “ For more information visit, email, or call (603) 447-2117.

quarter of a percentage point for any deal that isn’t exactly “pristine,” he says — and pristine means a free-standing single-family house instead of a condo, a credit score of 725 or more, and full documentation of income. Even when all else is equal, a vacation-home loan is pricier. Cecala just refinanced his own primary and secondary homes on the same day, and the interest on the vacation place was one-quarter percentage point higher. Some vacation areas offer distinct challenges. David Knudsen of Catskills Buyer Agency in Sullivan County says appraisals can be dicey in an area like his, because big banks may, for instance, require that sales be in the same school district to be comparable — which is not so easy with tiny school districts and spread-out sales. Local banks, he said, are better able to assess the worth of, say, a house on one lake versus one on another. Banks aren’t the only places to get financing. Some sellers will carry loans. “That’s a question some buyers forget to ask sellers,” Loundy said. “Not everybody is in trouble.” And what about cash, after all? Vacation-home buyers tend to be older and more affluent than other buyers, so all-cash deals are common. According to the Realtors’ survey, 36 percent paid cash, as did 59 percent of investment buyers. Knudsen said that half his sales in the last year were all cash. These buyers don’t need to have appraisals; they can close in 30 days instead of 60 or more; and they can consider houses in less-thanperfect physical condition, like foreclosures.

BARTLETT — Bartlett's annual Memorial Day parade is set to proceed from the north end of the village to Veterans Park Monday at 11 a.m., according to John Pandora of American Legion Post 95. The parade is presented by the Bartlett Veterans of Foreign Wars Francis Murphy Post and American Legion Post 95. “It's going to be a good parade — we've got a kids band and other entrants,” said Pandora. Pandora said the Legion and VFW will hold services at several local cemeteries, starting at 9 a.m. at the Jackson Village Cemetery before proceeding to the Intervale Cemetery and the Glen Cemetery. They will then head to the parade for the 11 a.m. start in Bartlett Village. After the parade, veterans will gather at the VFW post in Bartlett for lunch. Services will follow at the North Conway Cemetery for services at the American Legion plot at the top of the hill at 2 p.m. “Then we go home,” said Pandora, who said he said he is not sure what Conway Legion Post 46 on Tasker Hill has planned for the day and urged interested parties to call that post at 447-3927 for further information. In other local observances, Ossipee VFW Color Guard and the Wolfeboro American Legion are scheduled to present a Memorial Day service Sunday, May 29 at Chickville Church and Cemetery on Chickville Road in Ossipee. For further information, call 5694296. A wreath-laying ceremony will be held at see SERVICES page 26
