CONWAY — The Conway School Board, in anticipation of a special meeting Aug. 16, has reduced its budget by nearly $300,000, bringing the new total below $33 million. School offi cials voted 5-1 (Randy Davison in the minority and Rick Breton unable to attend) to cut $286,739 Thursday night during a special meeting of the board at the Professional Development Center at Kennett Middle School. The new budget figure that was sent to the municipal budget committee is $32,798,634. The default budget from April, which voters opted for in hopes of avoiding a possible legal showdown, is likely to remain the same at $33,275,846.

Advisory panel: Cellphone radiation may cause cancer A World Health Organization panel has concluded that cellphones are “possibly carcinogenic,’’ putting the popular devices in the same category as certain dry cleaning chemicals and pesticides, as a potential threat to human health. The finding, from the agency’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, adds to concerns among a small but growing group of experts about the health effects of low levels of radiation emitted by cellphones. The panel, which consisted of 31 scientists from 14 countries, was led by Dr. Jonathan M. Samet, a physician and epidemiologist at the University of Southern California and a member of President Obama’s National Cancer Advisory Board. The group didn’t conduct any new research but reviewed numerous existing studies that focused on the health effects of radio frequency magnetic fields, which are emitted by cellphones.


You have to take into account it was the cell phone that became what the modern-day concept of a phone call is, and this is a device that’s attached to your hip 24/7. Before that there was ‘leave a message’ and before that there was ‘hopefully you’re home.’” Giovanni Ribisi

Karzai warns NATO against air attacks on Afghan homes KABUL, Afghanistan — In one of his sternest warnings yet concerning civilian casualties, President Hamid Karzai said Tuesday that NATO must stop air attacks on Afghan homes immediately, or face “unilateral action” from the Afghan government. President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan spoke to journalists during a press conference in Kabul on Tuesday. Speaking at a news conference at the presidential palace in Kabul, Mr. Karzai declined to say what actions the government would or could take, saying only that Afghanistan “has a lot of ways of stopping it.” In an admonishment that carried an air of

In showdown over debt, neither party is blinking WASHINGTON — In a bit of political stagecraft, House Republicans plan to bring to a vote on Tuesday evening a measure that President Obama and the Democrats were demanding not so long ago: a clean increase in the national debt ceiling, unencumbered by any requirement that spending be cut. Given that all Republicans and more than a few Democrats oppose any debt-limit increase that is not accompanied by some commitment to future fiscal restraint, the measure is doomed to fail. And for all the talk of economic crisis should Congress fail to raise the debt ceiling by August, the fi nancial markets are likely to yawn at this

BUDGET from page one

The New Hampshire Attorney General and N.H. Department of Revenue Administration determined May 11 that the budget approved by voters in April was subject to the so-called 10 percent rule, which limits to 10 percent the amount voters can add or deduct from the budget. The school board's budget committee (which includes Jane Gray of Eaton, the SAU 9 chairman) voted to move forward with the following cuts Thursday night: • $50,000 in special education tuition, as a student moved out of district (7-0). • $28,360 in special education supplies (7-0). • $6,000 for Tin Mountain in the elementary schools (6-1, Davison in the minority). • $38,708 for a high school hall monitor (7-0). • $5,000 for School to Career (6-0-1, Gray abstained). • $46,372 for a MWV Career and Technical Center guidance counselor (7-0). • $4,030 in freshmen teacher stipends (7-0).

• $8,000 in the temporary staffi ng stipend pool (7-0). • $6,000 in maintenance supplies at the high school (7-0). • $33,300 in a half-time art teacher at the high school, leaving one full-time art teacher (4-3, Janine McLauchlan, Syndi White and Davison in the minority). • $4,000 for the Conway Elementary School strategic plan (7-0). • $56,690 in elementary custodial services. There was plenty of discussion on the proposed cuts, with some board members wanting to trim further. Budget committee members should have the new proposed budget in their hand by Wednesday. The committee will hold its public hearing on the budget June 15 and vote on what budget fi gure it wants to bring forward (it can support the school board's figure if it chooses). The deliberative portion of school meeting would be July 12 in the Loynd Auditorium at Kennett High with the earliest possible date to vote in this timeline being Aug. 16 at the Conway Community Building in Center Conway from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The budget would be the lone item voted on that day.

Join fund drive for AED for Jackson PD To the editor: You may have read about a CPR “save” performed by Chief Karl Meyers of the Jackson Police Department this past winter. I recently had a chance to congratulate him about this occurrence and to talk about the importance of early access to an AED and how the events of that day lead to the “save.” I was impressed by his enthusiasm, as it has been my experience in the world of EMS that his attitude is generally the exception and not the rule. I have known many policemen that weren’t too excited about performing CPR. I can understand this sentiment, because taking another person’s life in your hands is something that should not be done casually. I am thankful that the chief and his force are wiling to try. This should be recognized and supported by our community. The chief told me of his desire to obtain a second AED for our other police car.

To that end my wife and I are donating $100 to start a fund to get him one. I believe that this is something that can be done out of the “budget process” and should be done quickly, because to my mind AED’s are not a luxury. As we live in a rural area there will be many times when our police force will arrive before our EMS providers. This is not a knock at our EMS service, as they provide a level of service that should be envied by other towns, it is simply a question of geography. AED’s are not expensive, a new one generally costs around $1,500 and a reconditioned one (that meets the 2005 AHA Guidelines) might be obtained for less. So I would urge you to join us in this fund drive and to make a donation to the Jackson Police Department. It should be easily accomplished. And not to sound trite, it might save your life. Tom Greig Jackson

Thanks for helping build affordable homes To the editor: I could not wait to get home to write this note of thanks. This morning at the Habitat site one of our volunteers mentioned they saw a donation box at the entrance to the Hannaford store in North Conway. I was a bit surprised because no one had asked them to do it. As it turns out I needed some groceries so I went to Hannaford’s. Sure enough there was a donation box that people were dropping donations in. On behalf of the Mount Washington Valley Habitat for Humanity board of directors, I thank Hannaford and all their generous customers

who are kind enough to help us build affordable homes for people of the valley. We are an entirely volunteer run group. Only our part time office manager received compensation. All other donations go to pay for the materials used in our houses and to a small amount of offi ce costs. We try to be as effi cient and cost conscious as possible so your donation goes a long way. Again, thank you and bless you all. Please pray for our volunteers for the work they do. Remember to watch for our yard sale on June 11 and 12. Bill Volk, president Mount Washington Valley Habitat for Humanity

Jean Huntoon an often unappreciated town treasure To the editor: On June 2, Jean Huntoon will leave the Conway District Court where she has been Clerk of Court for over 30 years. Jean has been the clerk for six judges: Burnham Davis, L. Hamlin Greene, Robert Dickson, William Paine, Peter Fauver and Pamela Albee, as well as for many special justices who have sat on the Conway bench over the years. Through all the ups and downs and “upgrade” changes to the Court system, Jean and her staff of Peg Garland and Jolene Gushee, have communicated with judges, prosecutors, county attorneys, defense attorneys, sheriffs, police offi cers, bailiffs, the attorney general and all their offi ce staff members and, yes, especially the public, the citizens of Carroll County with professionalism, intelligence, competence, sympathy and even, when appropriate, some humor. You can speak with a “real” person when you call the court, and someone will either answer your question or return your call. Jean and her staff have spoken with countless citizens over the years and they are familiar with actual Conway people covering a couple of generations. Jean and her staff grew up in the Conway area, are familiar with different people, locations, businesses, landlords, tenants, people that work in the legal system, etc. Jean, herself, is the daughter of a former Carroll County High Sheriff, John Leighton. This type of personal service to the community is slowly eroding away and will soon be just a memory in the minds of the “Old Folk” here in the county. No one will ever be able to calculate the number of times Jean has “suggested” that a prosecutor needed to turn over a police report to a defendant/defense attorney, called ahead to make sure a defendant would be transported to the court on time even if she had already sent a notice of transport out to that agency, gently advised a defense attorney that she had not received an appearance from his/her office yet to formally advise the court that the defendant was being represented, advised a parent that their “child” was an adult and the court could not give out information about a case, advised a citizen that the court personnel were neutral and not attorneys and

therefore could not give legal advice, worked on Saturdays voluntarily to make sure the work for the next week was ready and up to date for the judge, the prosecutor, the defense attorney, and the public, and the list could go on and on. But above and beyond all of the above, Jean has honored her position and maintained confi dentiality about the cases that have crossed her desk. Jean’s “secrets” are based on her commitment to this community that she does not discuss court business outside her office. Jean has had the same neutral attitude and professionalism with police officers and defense attorneys. She may have her own personal thoughts about a particular case, but this has never affected how she has run her department and the same can be said of her staff. Over the years, Jean as accumulated more knowledge about criminal cases and the legal system than most beginner attorneys. She reads new case law that comes to her desk and stays abreast of changes in the court system itself. I have lived in Carroll County for many years and have been a paralegal for three New Hampshire law fi rms as well as being a criminal investigator for the New Hampshire Public Defender’s offi ce for many years. I have also worked as a paralegal in two Louisiana law fi rms. I have been on the job over these years in just about every district court and superior court in the State of New Hampshire as well as in the federal court in Concord. I have had a professional association with the Conway District Court and Jean Huntoon for many years. I can tell the citizens of Carroll County that without a doubt, The Conway District Court is one of the best run, if not THE best run district court in all of New Hampshire and this smooth running, professional district court is due to Jean Huntoon. When Jean leaves her office on June 2, Carroll County will not only lose an experienced, professional district court clerk, they will lose another, often unappreciated, town treasure. Penny Lord Tamworth

It is not safe to be in the water at this time of year To the editor: I really felt the need to write this letter, due to the increased number of drownings that have happened recently. With Memorial Day approaching, I wanted to get this message out to families that may be going away or planning a day trip. I never realized just how many people drown this time of year, until I lost my own son Jason to a canoe accident in Madison, which will be 14 years ago, this Memorial Day. There are so many people attempting to go swimming, or out in boats. They call this the Drowning Season. What people don’t seem to realize is not only do people die from drowning, but also another signifi cant factor to this death is hypothermia. This topic never seems to be addressed. How is it that if there is thin ice on a pond, offi cials will post a sign: Dangerous. Stay off the ice! What they also don’t realize is that although we may have warm weather this time of year, the water temperature is still only 40-45 degrees. These are the temperatures when hypothermia sets in. This is when your body loses more

heat than it can generate. People are often unaware that they are in an emergency situation. When this happens the body temperature falls below 94 degrees resulting in loss of coordination, slow rate of breathing, loss of mental alertness, and the extremities no longer work making the body impossible to move, therefore unable to make it back to safety. People have got to understand that it is not like going out on a cold winter day without a coat. It is far more dangerous then that. I really wish that this were explained more when these terrible drownings occur, and that offi cials would post signs alerting people of the danger of the water temperatures at this time of year. It is not safe to be in the water this time of year! In memory of my son Jason, I wanted to send this message to all of you who will be out there this Memorial Day Weekend. Please be careful out there. Wear life jackets! Sandra Ford Somerville, Mass.

So-called right to work is wrong for New Hampshire Over the last 30 years, there have been numerous attempts to pass socalled Right to Work legislation in New Hampshire. In the past, each time this type of legislation had been introduced in the legislature, it had been quickly defeated — by both Republican and Democratic majorities. This year is different. Both the House and Senate passed so-called Right to Work legislation for the fi rst time in the state’s history. Thankfully, Gov. John Lynch vetoed this legislation because state government should not be in the business of dictating to private companies what can or cannot be included in contracts with their employees. Despite claims to the contrary, this legislation is neither pro-business nor is it pro-worker. It will do nothing to strengthen New Hampshire’s economy, and in mine — and many others’ opinions — it would weaken it. I urge House members to sustain the veto. I also urge the people of New Hampshire to make it clear to their representatives that this is simply not needed in New Hampshire. It may work in the deep South — but New Hampshire is not the deep South. New Hampshire’s economy is one of the strongest in the nation. Our unemployment rate is 45 percent below the national average. We have a high quality of life, fueled by the fact that we have one of the highest incomes per capita in the country. We are the most livable state and the safest state in the nation. And we all know what a great place this is to do business and to raise a family. So-called Right to Work states — such as Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi — routinely have a much higher poverty rate, and

Despite claims to the contrary, this legislation is neither pro-business nor is it pro-worker. much lower income per capita. We are leading the way here in New Hampshire. Why would we want to reverse direction and follow the lead of those states? New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development Commissioner George Bald has stated he has met with thousands of businesses over the years, many looking to locate to New Hampshire and many more located right here in our state. Not once has the topic Right to Work ever come up in all of his discussions with New Hampshire businesses and prospective businesses. Not once did a business tell him they would not move to New Hampshire because so-called Right to Work was not in effect. Not once did a New Hampshire business ever tell him they were leaving the state because Right to Work was not in effect. I have been Commissioner of Labor for the last six years. I have met and worked with over 2,000 business leaders in various capacities. Not once has a business leader in this state told me they believe Right to Work should be adopted in this state. Right to Work is wrong for business, wrong for workers and wrong for New Hampshire. I urge lawmakers to do what their predecessors — both Republican and Democrat — have done for years and reject Right to Work in New Hampshire. George N. Copadis serves as Commissioner of Labor for the State of New Hampshire.

This simple piece of tin is hung out for all to see To the editor: As we enter the Memorial Day weekend I am sending you this poem I wrote last November: This Piece Of Tin This piece of tin, No diamonds Adorn its surface, Hanging from a simple chain, In a basic picture frame. Tears do well, In the corner of her eyes, Every time she passes by. The ring he gave her, Sits in a drawer, For none to see, But this simple piece of tin, Is hung out for all to see. For it is, The most precious piece of jewelry, She will ever have, For this, Simple piece of tin

Is the last piece of jewelry, He ever gave her. It wasn’t presented to her, In his life on earth, But given by his death, On a field of battle In a foreign land. This little piece of tin, You see, Is the most precious Chain she will ever own. For when her love, Breathed his last, His broken body, Wracked in pain, Whispered, My Wife, How I love thee, This simple piece of tin, I pass to you today, Please hold on, And always remember me. Paul H. Bartoswicz Effingham

LILACS from page one

“Every year is different,” Schenker explains, “Last year all my lilacs were gone by this point. This year all my buds stayed closed while it rained and bloomed very late. They look just beautiful right now.” Schenker, who lives in Freedom, has been gardening for most of her life, and at 91 years old with a degree in horticulture from the University of Massachusetts, she continues to fi ll her yard with flowers. For years now her primary flower has been the lilac. Her husband sparked the interest back in 1975, and now Schenker is known among her neighbors and friends as “The Lilac Lady.” According to New Hampshire historian Leon Anderson, the purple lilac, or Syringa vulgaris, was brought over from England to America back in 1750, and planted at the home of Governor Benning Wentworth in Portsmouth. This particular plant still grows today, and is known as the oldest living lilac tree in North America. In 1919, when it came time to choose New Hampshire’s state fl ower, the purple lilac, promoted by judge Fred Jones, went up against the apple blossom, purple aster, wood lily, Mayfl ower, goldenrod, wild pasture rose, evening primrose, and the buttercup. The choice was not made quickly. A long debate over each flower’s qualities went on for a while, but judge Jones eventually convinced both the House and Senate to choose the purple lilac as New Hampshire’s state flower. Anderson says the lilac was picked because it "is symbolic of that hardy character of the men and women of the Granite State." With spring lilac festivals in Lisbon, Portsmouth, Rochester and Franconia, people come from all around the state to appreciate this shrub. Gardeners and others love the lilac for its colors,

“Last year all my lilacs were gone by this point. This year all my buds stayed closed while it rained and bloomed very late.” scent and look. And some people, like Sally Schenker, devote their entire yard to this one flower. Usually Schenker would have said goodbye to her lilacs by now, but today she is still looking out her window to see her mid- and late-season lilacs in bloom. “They are quite overdue,” she says, “so as soon as it starts getting hot, they will go away quickly.” And as the days roll into June, the heat isn’t too far off. So although their time is almost up, lilacs are still out there waiting to be seen. The rain has made these fl owers last longer than usual, and they are still available to be picked, placed in vases, and sniffed. If you ask Sally Schenker, she will tell you that the distinct smell of a lilac is the best and most beautiful smell there is. And if you want to fi ll your home with that lilac fragrance every year, grow your own! They won't bloom until next spring, but with plenty of colors and species to choose from, and their easy-to-grow nature, a lilac shrub is the perfect backdrop to any New Hampshire garden. “Lilacs are very forgiving,” says Schenker, “They can go through a lot and still look nice come spring.” Schenker welcomes visitors who wish to appreciate her lilacs or take some pictures, so take a trip down to Freedom and let the fl owers do the talking. And if you don't get the chance, there is always next year. Just like this year, last year, and the year before that, The Lilac Lady will keep her garden growing for as long as she can.

WEEKEND from page one

A number of business owners shared that they noticed an increasing number of Canadian and international visitors coming from as far as Russia. “There was so much to see and do in Mount Washington Valley this weekend, nothing could keep visitors and families from enjoying a three-day holiday in the White Mountains,” said Janice Crawford, executive director of the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce. Jason Robinson of Mount Washington Valley Accommodations shared an e-mail from a guest who said, “We had a blast and loved our room at the Eastern Slope Inn Resort! I didn't know, it's like an Orlando of the Northeast where you are... there's so much to do!" It was all smiles in North Conway as the first Kindness Weekend got under way with a parade of 500 smileyfaced balloons arriving in Schouler Park. According to organizer Michael Kline the event was a huge success, with hundreds of volunteers giving away thousands of gifts ranging from attraction tickets to the hugely popular free hugs. Tickets were donated by Mount Washington Auto Road, Great Glen Trails, Conway Scenic Railroad and

Story Land. Author and speaker Michael Chase of The Kindness Center gave a lecture Friday night, and was on hand Saturday at the rally and visited patients at Memorial Hospital with a group of fl ower-toting volunteers. According to Kline, “The event was created by the North Conway Village Association as an added attraction for visitors to bring their families to the valley for Memorial Day weekend. Response was so enthusiastic the organizers expect the event to be larger and more widely promoted next year.” A number of lodging property owners responding to the survey said occupancy was up over Memorial Day, 2010. According to Cathi Belcher, co-owner

of the Lodge at Jackson, the lodge was sold out and visitors were referred to other area lodging. “We had a large increase in the number of walk-ins; people seem to be making more last-minute decisions regarding their travel plans, possibly based on the weather,” said Belcher. Linda Trask at the Glen Oaks Inn credited a creative package with just the amenities and activities guests wanted for the increase her inn saw over last year’s Memorial Day weekend. Mary Ann Mayer of the Mount Washington Bed and Breakfast enthusiastically reported a sellout weekend, and the best the inn has seen in 12 years. Tom Spaulding, gen-

eral manager of the Hampton Inn and Suites, reported mostly a sellout weekend, which accounted for a 5 percent increase over last year. Spaulding noted a large increase in Canadian visitors and many families coming to enjoy the opening weekend for many attractions. Jason Robinson, director of marketing and communications at Mount Washington Valley Accommodations, noted a slight increase in revenue for the properties including Eastern Slope Resort, Attitash Mountain Village, Oxen Yoke Motel and Attitash Marketing, and also a signifi cant increase in Canadian business. see WEEKEND page 10

WEEKEND from page 9

Jonathan Spak, co-owner/chef of the Oxford House Inn in Fryeburg, reported a weekend that was “gangbusters” for both the inn and the restaurant. He attributed the increase in business over last year to a menu featuring many bistro-plates and the Fryeburg Academy graduation. He noted that while in the past summer season seemed to get underway around July 4, this year Memorial Day is clearly marking the beginning of the summer rush in Fryeburg. Howard Stanten, owner of The Met Coffeehouse, reported a 14 percent increase in sales over last year for Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend with record numbers for Sunday, attributing strong sales to the Kindness Weekend activities in North Conway Village. Every one of the attractions that weighed in on the survey offered positive feedback about business levels for the Memorial Day weekend. A spokesman at White Lake Speedway Inc. felt the weekend turned out better than expected given the gloomy weather forecast going into the weekend. Despite being slightly down in revenues for Friday and Saturday, Sunday was even with last year at the speedway. Kathy Bennett, marketing director at Cranmore

Resort, reported a very strong grand opening weekend for the new Adventure Park. “Many of our lodging partners were successful in selling stay-and-play packages and word was that occupancy and business levels were good in the valley overall,” said Bennett. May 28th became a history-making day on Mount Washington, as several intrepid adventurers each set a unique record on the Mount Washington Auto Road as part of Alton Weagle Day. During his heyday in the 1950s, Weagle set many records on the road, including climbing the eight-mile path to the summit barefoot, then backwards and fi nally blindfolded. As part of the Auto Road’s commemorative festivities, several first ascents were accomplished, including: Sue Wemyss, who made the fi rst ever roller ski ascent; Jesse Lyman, who made the fi rst roller blade ascent; Meg Skidmore, who made the fi rst female unicycle ascent; Jon Pensak, who made the first male roller skier ascent, Ben Hvar, who brought a vintage phone booth to the summit; and Steven Caming, who drove his vehicle backwards, from the base to the top of Mount Washington. Karen Tolin, owner of Raft NH and Muddy Paws Sled Dog Kennel, reported a sold-out Saturday, and said trips were well up over last year for both the rafting company and interest in the kennel. “I've found that people are traveling from farther away

this year including Georgia and Florida. This is a signifi cant change from the 'one tank' type trips we've seen in the past couple years," said Tolin. Tolin also credited the advertising campaign spearheaded by N.H. Department of Travel and Tourism Development in New York with bringing in business and credibility for the state. Thomas Prindle, director of marketing for Attitash and Wildcat, shared that visitor traffi c was steady and the weather was favorable for Memorial Day weekend at Attitash, which has not been open in the last couple of years for Memorial Day weekend. Additionally, according to Prindle, “Wildcat Mountain also saw steady business with maximum capacities for riders per hour for the ZipRider being met on Sunday, the strongest day of the weekend." This spring, Wildcat Mountain increased the ZipRider capacity by installing an additional chair harness retrieval system to keep up with the summer’s anticipated higher demand. Jack Mahaney, assistant general manager at Story Land, reported that attendance was even at the attraction, but spending was up over last year for the Memorial Day weekend. He said he’s optimistic about a strong summer season. Susan Logan, manager of marketing and events see next page

READY TO TRY A DEAL? Wondering if The Sun’s Daily Deal makes sense for your business?

Well, you’re not alone. The Daily Deal is modeled after Groupon and LivingSocial, the hottest marketing companies in the country, but the concept is still new and many businesses don’t understand how these deals bring new customers. It’s not witchcraft or even art, but if you’d like to learn more about deals and whether they fit your business, talk to your Sun sales representative or call Joyce, 733-5808 or Mark 733-5800.

for the Conway Scenic Railroad, said, "Our ticket agents reported lots of international visitors, including Russian and Pakistani families, also Germans and Canadians. As has been typical this spring, seats in our fi rst-class cars sold faster than those in coach, so our guests didn’t appear to be economizing”. Matt Fusco, owner of The Rugged Mill store in North Conway Village, concurred that the mix of visitors was clearly international. “We noticed a nice mix of visitors from all over including New England, Canada, England, Germany, Spain and Australia,” said Fusco. He added, “Kindness Weekend and the craft shows seemed to attract a lot of visitors to North Conway Village, which certainly brought many people passing by our storefront." Deborah Jasien, owner/crafter at Fields of Ambrosia, reported a 20 percent increase in business this year over last Memorial Day weekend, also crediting Kindness Weekend with bringing visitors who were making larger purchases to North Conway Village. Lynda Schuepp, owner of The Penguin, observed that while the numbers of visitors to the store increased by 5 percent, sales were slightly down for the weekend, concluding that gas prices are affecting consumer spending. Soyfi re Candle gave out 100 free candle gift cards at the Kindness Weekend, and many were redeemed at the store with about half the recipients making additional purchases. Sales for the weekend were up almost 20 percent over 2010. The Framed Art Superstore reported even sales with last year. Ed MacDonald, owner of New England Mountain Sports (better known as the Columbia Store), felt that the increase in business for his store was due in part to more Canadians buying clothing in his store.

For many business owners, their customers have switched from picking up a phone book to typing a name in the Google search bar. Remember Steve Martin’s character in the late 1970s movie The Jerk? Navin R. Johnson yells out, “The new phone book's here! The new phone book's here!” It’s equally exciting to see your name listed in cyberspace. Your customers have access to more than just your phone number. No website? You must have a pretty loyal customer base. But if you want to attract the next generation, you need a home on the web. Blog: The word itself is an abbreviated form of web-log. Simply put it’s an article. But since you read it on a computer, it will most likely appear in chronological order and will allow comments. There will also usually be an archive and a feed button for sharing. Blogs started off as on-line personal journals but now the content covers anything. As a business, blogging gives you so many options outside your day-to-day activity. You can write about personal things such as the highlights of your vacation, educate your customers on product details that don’t always come up during the sale, and tell about local happenings and upcoming events. Facebook: This is where the party is. Put business matters aside and go mingle. Find out about events, industry news, gossip and meet new people. But fi rst, be sure to set your business up as a page and not a person or group. Pages are public profiles that offer features more relevant to companies and are the most effective tool for people trying to promote their brand or business. Not to mention it’s a violation of the Facebook terms of service for a business to be a person as it gives access to too much personal information. see SOCIAL MEDIA page 16

Berlin City Auto Group donates to local schools BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

BERLIN — In these challenging economic times, Berlin City Auto Group is making a difference in helping local schools. Through its Drive for Education Foundation, the company on National Teacher Day on May 3 gave $40,000 to 12 schools across New England. Included among those 12 were grants totaling $15,000 given to four K-12 schools in the Berlin area: • Berlin High School — Berlin. • Gorham Middle School — Gorham. • Brown Elementary — Berlin. • Milan Village School — Milan. Those four grants ranged from $2,500 to $3,500, according to Berlin City general managers Ed Watson and Chad Crane, both of whom work out of the company’s Berlin location. Berlin City hopes to award a total of $100,000 by the end of the year, said Watson, who oversees the company’s Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Kia, Dodge and Jeep sales while Crane is supervisor for the company’s General Motors, Chevrolet and Buick sales. Schools from the Conway area are eligible to apply for grants. “We hope to award grants every quarter,” said Watson, who said $10 from every car sold at Berlin City’s five dealerships in New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont goes to support the foundation. *** To be considered for the fi rst round of the program, a school official had to submit a short essay to Berlin City Auto Group by April 15 explaining how their school would use a donation of up to $3,500. Berlin City’s brand ambassadors, a group of employees that lead the dealerships’ community involvement campaigns, evaluated the needs of each school and selected the winners accordingly.

your business resume. Just like having a website, it validates you in the working world. You can be a person and/or a business. Essentially this is your professional profi le and once it’s all fi lled out you’re connected to people outside your network. As a bonus they can write references for you for all to see. Yelp: Here’s the scenario: You’re visiting North Conway for the fi rst time and have a craving for a fi sh taco. Using your smartphone, you click on the Yelp app, type in fi sh taco, North Conway, and discover there are a few choices nearby. You can click on Kearsarge Cafe, fi nd a glowing review, and the lunch problem is solved. Another popular review site is Trip Advisor. Foursquare: While at Kearsarge Cafe, continuing with the last example, you decide to let your friends in on this great find and post your location. With any luck if you come back enough times you might become the Foursquare “Mayor” of Kearsarge Cafe and possibly be rewarded. There are other location-based social networks that you can use to check in with your peeps, including Gowalla and Facebook Places. If you’re not familiar with these, it’s well worth a moment to find out what people are saying about you and at the very least to make sure your location is right. Hopefully this list of tools will help get you started. For many business owners, it’s not the learning curve that prevents them from posting and tweeting but the lack of time. The priority is to be out in front making a sale, not in the office “playing” on the computer. There’s a solution for that! You can use a management tool such as Hootsuite or TweetDeck to schedule your posts. Or you can simply hire someone to do it for you. Lisa Oaks is a consultant at Go Social!

In addition to the dining room, which is open to the public, Shafer and his team also prepare food in summer for the Cabana, a licensed pool-side bar, the inn tavern, and for weddings and events for up to 200. Shafer lives in North Conway with his wife Sarah and daughter Caleen. Shafer says that he has a wide spectrum of culinary infl uences resulting from his formal training and ongoing curiosity. “I like discovering new ideas and continuously experiment with new recipes. In the last few months,” said Shafer, “I have worked with our suppliers to source natural and organically grown meats and produce to incorporate into our new menu. Our grass-fed beef has already been a big hit — you can really taste the difference.” “We are very proud of Stan and congratulate him on his achievement,” said innkeeper Gary Plourde. “Our guests rave about his cooking and we have a loyal local following.” Plourde believes “you are what you eat.” “We aim to deliver freshly prepared, country comfort food that is healthy for the heart and the wallet. We try to source things locally, where available, and we have gluten and allergen free options available,” he said. For more information, call the inn at 383-4313 or visit

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, June 1, 2011— Page 19


Message of the markets BY MARK PATTERSON Last week was an unusual week in the equity, bond and currency markets. First off I must say that it was an extremely light volume week because of the three-day weekend and the unoffi cial start to summer. Light volume leads to more exaggerated moves due to lack of liquidity. Typically the bond market trades up in price when there is strength in the dollar and weakness and concern in the stock market or economy. The Federal Reserve led by Ben Bernanke, has stated that the current treasury buying program, known as QE 2, will end in June. The bond market would react to the end of the treasury buying program in a move down in price, up in yield if the markets believed what Bernanke was saying; they did not. While many investors believe that we will see higher interest rates in the future, there is a theory that few have spoken about, but the numbers are beginning to support. That is defl ation. We have experienced commodity infl ation through the cost of gas and home heating oil. Food prices are higher. If you own gold or silver then you have seen higher prices there as well. But if you look at the other end of the spectrum with home prices coming

in at new lows and the disappointing elevation of initial unemployment claims, then you will see a picture of deflation in the housing and employment sectors. Last week I believe the bond market was reacting to poor housing and employment data, and the real possibility of Bernanke starting a new treasury buying program which will be named QE 3. None of this paints a good picture for the economy going forward. “The economy goes as our housing market goes” is a saying that has a lot of merit. So many jobs are supported by a good housing market. Employment is still a major problem in our country because many companies have found that less employees help the bottom line and improve profi t margins. There are a whole bunch of jobs that will not be fi lled again. My progressive friends deny that the new health care bill keeps companies from hiring; however, it is a real factor when the employer does not know how it will affect their business going forward.

Set on a 16 acre lot, with 2 acres of rolling lawns that are blended into the natural features of the ridge, the sunny 3800 square foot lodge has an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, overlooking balconies and an impressive granite fireplace.

So how do you invest money in the current environment with the potential for high infl ation or defl ation, or the worst scenario, which is both? If you think that we are in a high infl ation environment, then keep your gold, silver and hard assets. If you feel we are in for defl ation, buy some treasur-

ies or fi xed income. If we have both infl ation and deflation, then have a diversified portfolio of all asset classes, which is what I typically recommend for just about any scenario. Mark Patterson is an investment advisor with MHP Asset Management and can be reached at 447-1978 or

Studio is directly across the street at 22 Portland Street. Hanson opened her shop at the end of April and offers art classes, workshops, art parties and more for adults and children. Just down the street at 285 Main Street is The Good Beer Store. This spacious store opened in May and offers specialty beers and wines that are rarely found in other stores. Fryeburg Business Association will be hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony for these three businesses on Friday, June 10. “It is very important that we support these new businesses in our community,” said Donna Woodward, president of Fryeburg Business Association. “Living on the border of a tax-free state means we have to work harder and work together to be successful. These three businesses are exactly what Fryeburg needs — they are unique, fi ll a niche, and are all good reasons for someone to drive to Fryeburg to do business. We hope you will come to the ribbon cutting and visit these stores on Friday.” The ribbon-cutting ceremony will start at 9 a.m. at the Spice and Grain Store, then over to the Carl Hanson Art Studio at 9:15 a.m., and finally to the Good Beer Store at 9:30 a.m. Also, the fi rst Fryeburg Business Association networking social will be on Monday, June 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the 302 Smokehouse and Tavern. The social is open to all businesses. Appetizers will be served, and there will also be a cash bar, raffle and door prizes. This will be the fi rst of a regular monthly social sponsored by the Fryeburg Business Association. The social will always be held on the fi rst Monday of the month (unless Monday is a holiday and then it will be on the second Monday). Location of each social will be announced as well as posted on If you would like to host a social or participate, e-mail info@

Thibodeaus to talk on farming in Fryeburg

We need your help! The Fryeburg Public Library is offering a summer library program to the children in our community this summer to encourage them to read for pleasure and to retain their reading skills. This year’s theme is “One World, Many Stories.” To add to the fun and to create a sense of challenge that will keep kids reading, we’d like to offer incentives and contest prizes at various times during the summer. Because of our limited budget, we cannot afford to offer this without help. We appreciate any donation you care to make. Possible donations include items to give away as prizes, books, coupons for free goods or services, or cash to buy prizes to offer as a grand prize. We will mention the assistance you have generously donated in our publicity. If you can help us in any way, please contact the library at (207) 935-2731. We hope to include you in our summer plans. Many Thanks! The library book sale will continue all summer long. If you’re looking for a great mystery, a cookbook, a book about gardening or just about any other subject, the library has a wide variety of titles to choose from. Stop in during regular business hours, Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. see FRYEBURG page 23

For a program to fly there is a minimum and maximum number of participants required so it’s recommended you sign up early. For those who can’t make the June 4 date there will be another sign up on Saturday, June 18, at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. For more information you can log on to the recreation website at

Congratulations to Kim Hurst, no relation, for winning the T-shirt design contest for the seventh annual Lovell Old Home Days 5k run T-shirt. Each year the art department of Fryeburg Academy is asked to compete for the winning design for the T-shirt. The students are asked to combine the theme of running and Lovell into the original design. Kim is a senior at the academy and a resident of Chatham. For winning the design contest she received a $100 prize and bragging rights for her T-shirt. This talented young lady will be attending Wheaton College in Norton Mass. in the fall. The committee appreciates the assistance of academy art teacher Steve Pullen.

The Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library will be holding “Super Saturday Morning” at the library on June 18, from 9 a.m. to noon. This jam packed morning allows children ages 2 – 12 years of age to register for the “One World, Many Stories” summer reading club. For those who join, they’ll receive a reading passport to use for redeeming prizes throughout the summer. There will also be a Chewonki Foundation National History program sponsored by the Greater Lovell Land Trust. “One Pond – Many Stories” will run from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. The children will learn the mysteries of a pond: what lurks under the water and what animals use the pond as its habitant. Children who missed the fi rst recreation program sign up will be able to enroll for any program. Also there will be available Portland Sea Dogs Game free ticket vouchers for those who sign up for the summer reading club. If that isn’t enough there will be refreshments of fruit salad and a piece of Happy Summer Cake. A fun-fi lled morning for the kids and a chance for the adults to check out the new books and the donated books in the second hand store down stairs. The annual Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library Luncheon will be held on Sunday June 26, 2011 at Severance Lodge Club starting at noon. The luncheon has been a long tradition of the library, when the staff and regular volunteers are honored for their hard work and support of the library director. Last year, these wonderful ladies worked so hard to help in getting everything moved and resettled for the opening of the addition. For a year they worked under diffi cult conditions but did it with a smile on their faces because they could see what the finished product would be. The luncheon also serves to reacquaint those attending with the library board who serves the library. For those who go away for the winter, the luncheon serves as a “hello, I’m back” for many. The cost per person is $20 for a sit down meal with the added attraction of a beautiful view of Kezar Lake. This year there will be a special guest speaker in Carol Severance, the daughter of Lucille and Harold Severance, who were the founders of the club. Carol will share her many memories of the “early days.” As seating is limited it is suggested you call the library at 9253177 and make a reservation. June is very busy at the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library. On Tuesday, June 14, Fryeburg Academy biology teacher Joel Rhymer and his students will talk about the many trips they’ve taken in the interest of scientifi c research. Each trip included students who received an out-of-school education in dealing with peoples of different nations. His groups have built bridges in the rainforest, rebuilt homes for migrant workers and assisted in many projects in communities around the world. All are invited to attend and hear interesting stories and see pictures of what they have accomplished. Refreshments will be served. For those who have not joined the gardener’s group it’s not too late. These garden enthusiasts are staring their third year of getting together to help each other in their goals for better gardening. Everyone is invited to attend so bring your lunch and join in on Thursday, June 16, at noon. I would like to thank all those who has sent me get well cards, called me on the phone or cooked a meal for me. The generosity of the Lovell community is overwhelming. It sort of humbles me that so many people wished me well in my recovery and I will recover, hale and hearty. I start physical therapy at Memorial and hope to be on the golf course when my Dr. Ryan says I can. God bless to all.

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll rehearse certain things that others wouldn’t take the time to practice. That’s because you see the value in presenting yourself in a smooth, cool manner. One advantage is that people will immediately trust you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can relax in the knowledge that no one will rate your performance unless you specifically ask for such an evaluation. Feel free to do things the way you want to do them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19 ). In the past, you’ve said “yes” when you wanted to say “no.” You’ve since learned your lesson. You will get the chance to prove it today, as you make the choice that’s right for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a special gift for dealing with eccentric people. You have ways of maneuvering their tricky personality traits, understanding what they really mean and accepting them for who they are. PISCES (Feb. 19 -March 20). Your body has an intelligence you can trust. Pay attention to physical signals. If you’re not sure what they mean, pose the question to your body and see if an answer pops to mind. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 1). It is a year of increased personal power. An important accomplishment you make by the end of September will illustrate the point. Between now and then, you will focus your efforts and keep from procrastinating. A key purchase in October will make your work easier. Love and laughter fi ll your house in the new year. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 50, 15, 33 and 17.

Cul de Sac

HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19 ). Once upon a time, you may have fantasized about fi nding the prince or princess of your dreams. But now you have some very practical and realistic goals for your love life, and you are rapidly approaching them. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Mingling with new people, you’ll fi nd you immediately click with some -- with others, not at all. So stick where you feel the magic. That’s where you’ll feel free to express the diverse facets of your talent. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A distracting infl uence may actually do you a favor. Some will fi nd it diffi cult to get back to work after the disruption, but you’ll fi nd the break in order to be creatively invigorating. CANCER (June 22-July 22). When your emotional needs are met, you feel physically strong and able. The affection and attention of a loved one will have a positive effect on your health. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You used to think there was no such thing as “too nice.” Now you understand that a certain person will keep pushing and asking until you have nothing more to give. It’s only healthy to hold some back for yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t have to be the best in order to win the vote that counts. You will be chosen because you’re a terrifi c fit, not because you’re the most experienced and qualifi ed. You know how to be a good partner. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Find creative inspiration. It is not an indulgence so much as a way for you to save the world. Indeed, the evolution of man depends on the dreams of healthy minds.

Page 28 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Wednesday, June 1, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I’m a 40-year-old, stay-at-home mom with a 17-year-old and a 14-year-old. Three weeks ago, on my birthday, I found out that I am pregnant. Forty and pregnant --- it is truly a miracle. My husband, who is almost 50, is in complete shock. He has looked like a ghost since he found out. I fi nally had an emotional meltdown and told him I don’t feel like he’s very happy for our unexpected bundle. His reply? “Sorry, Hon, I’m not!” He thinks he’s too old. My older child has said only one sentence to me since I told her the news: “You’re going to be an old mom.” They feel I have ruined their lives. I feel ... happy. How do I get them to warm up to this new addition to the family? -- OLD MAMA IN WASHINGTON STATE DEAR “OLD” MAMA: According to the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth by the Guttmacher Institute, in 2001, 49 percent of pregnancies in the United States were unintended. Among women aged 15 to 44, the unintended pregnancy rate was 51 per 1,000 women. So remind your husband that this pregnancy didn’t happen “magically”; he was an equal partner. He may have had other plans in mind for the next 20 years than raising another child, so his feelings are understandable. While it would be nice if he felt differently about the latest addition to the family, he might perk up if you point out that there are many older dads these days, and many older moms, too. As to your daughter’s attitude, she will be out of the house and gone soon, so don’t take personally that she’s not over the moon about the changes that are coming. If you maintain a positive attitude, your enthusiasm will be contagious.

DEAR ABBY: I’m 53, work in an offi ce six to eight hours a day, and then come home to cook dinner and do household chores. My husband, “Todd,” is 48. He works eight to 10 hours a day and expects sex three to four times a week. I’m exhausted and can’t do it anymore! My best friend, “Mavis,” has been a widow for fi ve years. She tells me she’s going crazy because she hasn’t had sex in all this time. She asked if I’d share Todd just one night a week. Mavis isn’t pretty, but she has a very shapely figure. Frankly, I’m ready to agree, but I haven’t mentioned it to Todd. If my husband agrees, it would take a lot of pressure off me and I could sure use the rest. What are your thoughts on this arrangement? -- NEEDS A BREAK IN PHOENIX DEAR NEEDS A BREAK: Please fi nd another way to take a break. What you’re contemplating would likely be the beginning of the end of your marriage. You may think you’d be “safe” because Mavis isn’t pretty, but to quote Benjamin Franklin, “In the dark, all cats are gray.” If you’re tired, let Mavis help with the chores -- but not this one. DEAR ABBY: I wish there was some way to make families understand that because someone has been widowed, we don’t stop caring about them. So why do they stop inviting us to family functions? Is it because they didn’t care for us in the first place? -- LEFT OUT IN IOWA DEAR LEFT OUT: There isn’t a one-size-fi ts-all answer to your question. However, I suspect that in many cases it’s because the widow’s presence is a painful reminder of the family member who is “missing.”

Eleven locals become Tough Mudders in adventure race Eleven valley residents traveled to Mount Snow Vermont to participate in Tough Mudder New England on May 7. The Tough Mudder is an obstacle course created by British Special Forces officers to challenge the psyche and physical stamina of its participants, while raising money for Project Wounded Warrior. The course in Vermont consisted of 29 obstacles stretched over 10 miles of terrain, while the total elevation climbed ended up being 12,000 feet. The obstacles included miles of mud, frigid cold water (one included a plunge off a 15-foot plank into a 45 degree pond), ice, snow, fire and electricity. One of the MWV Mudder Fudders fell off the greased monkey bars which resulted in a broken tib/fi b and ankle dislocation. His teammates stayed until medical personnel carried him off the course and then they continued on to the finish line (running through 10,000 units of electricity), carrying his spirit with them. The founder of Tough Mudder is Will Dean, an Englishman, whose background prior to the series lay in financial counter-terrorism for the British Government, followed by an MBA at Harvard. He was inspired to start the business after growing frustrated by the unimaginative and repetitive events that already existed, and a desire to create something that would occupy the space that marathons, triathlons, mud runs, and other adventure runs weren’t filling. This was the teamwork that made Tough Mudders out of them all. Tough Mudder New England will be held in July next year, and the rumor is they are looking at a local ski area for 2012. Are you tough enough? Competing from Mount Washington Valley were Donna Cormier, Rita Kostecke, Andrea Murphy, Marc Daigle, Brian Sponseller, Joe LaRue, MJ Britton, Bill Martin and John Sutton. Missing from picture are Jonathon Violette and Seth Hebert. Total course is approximately 10 miles long. Estimated time of completion is two hours and 30 minutes. Mount Snow has a base elevation of 1,600 feet an a summit elevation of 3,600 feet. 1) Braveheart Charge — charge into battle with 5,000 other mutters. Battle cries are essential. 2) Death March — feel the burn right away as you charge up this red fl agged ski slope to the top of the mountain. 3) The Killa Gorilla — it may seem pointless but marching up and down the same steep hill 10 times will warm your body up again.

Pictured are (front, left to right) Donna Cormier, Rita Kostecke, Andrea Murphy, (rear) Marc Daigle, Brian Sponseller, Joe LaRue, MJ Britton, Bill Martin and John Sutton. Missing from picture are Jonathon Violette and Seth Hebert. (COURTESY PHOTO)

4) Devil’s Bear — try as you might you will get caught like a fl y in this spider’s web and time and again in our annoyingly low cargo nets. 5) Boa Constrictor — prove you can cope with dark confi ned spaces and a few nasty scratches with our specifically designed Tough Mudder fire tunnels. 6) Tired Yet — act out your NFL dreams and run through our tires. Some are specifically filled with our signature mud just for kicks. 7) Tree Hugger — trek up a ski slope with only the trees to support you. Your legs will burn but your heart will sing. 8) Ball Shrinker — try not to fall of this rickety swinging rope bridge into the mud pit below. 9) Mud Mile — get stuck in our energy-zapping Tough Mudder thick mud as you work your way through a maze of mud trenches. 10) Kiss of Mud — eat dirt as you crawl on your belly under wire set only eight inches from the ground. 11) Hold our Wood — make like a lumberjack and drag a log up a ski slope and then try to keep your footing on the way back down. 12) Hay Bales — when the going gets tough, the tough becomes insurmountable hay bales in your path. 13) Evil Knevil — the name is now joke. You’ll need at least two other mutters if you want to get over this

slippery slope. 14) Spider’s Web — fi ght your way up and over not one but two cargo nets. The view from the top is nice but we think it best that you get down as soon humanly as possible. 15) Mystery Obstacle — something specifi cally designed on race day. Expect something truly bad ass. 16) Walk the Plank — test your fear of heights and cold all in one with a 15 foot splash into the pond followed by an out and back swim. 17) Underwater Tunnels — bob underneath the obstacles on the surface of the water as your heads shrinks to the size of a walnut. 18) Glacier — get ready to touch the void as you scramble up this 100 foot wall of permanent ice to reach the summit of Mount Snow. Spend too long here and you will become part of the permafrost. 19) The Gauntlet — prepare to feel like you are at a South American political demonstration as you get high-pressure hosed from both sides as you run through Mount Snow’s half pipe. 20) Cliff Hanger — teamwork is essential as you scramble up and over this steep and slippery motocross course. We dare you to try it on your own. 21) Blood Bath — it’ll be like tie-dying your shirt at summer camp except it’s your body and it’s the summer camp from hell. 22) Funky Monkey — monkey bars were easy when you were fi ve, but you’ll need top hold on extra tight on these. Some of them have been greased with butter and you’ll get a shock when you fall into the ice cold lake. 23) Berlin Walls — show team spirit and camaraderie as you work with other Tough Mudders to scale our series of 12-foot tall walls, tough enough when dry but really fun when wet. 24) Tower Hurdle — climb over the chairlift towers, hope your body is ready. 25) Fire Walker — plain and simple run through our kerosine soaked straw. Expect flames at least 4 feet high. 26) Turd’s Nest — try not to fall as you make your way across this fragile net. 27) Greased Lightning — have some fun sliding down the hill on your ass.
