Peter Falk dies at 83

Saturday High: 65 Record: 93 (1976) Sunrise: 5:03 a.m.

(NY Times) —Peter Falk, who marshaled actorly tics, prop room appurtenances and his own physical idiosyncrasies to personify Columbo, one of the most famous and beloved fictional detectives in television history, died on Thursday night at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. He was 83. His death was announced in a statement from Larry Larson, a longtime friend and the lawyer for Falk’s wife, Shera. He had been treated for Alzheimer’s disease in recent years. Falk had a wide-ranging career in comedy and drama, in the movies and onstage, before and during the three and a half decades in which he portrayed the slovenly but canny lead on “Columbo.” He was nominated for two Oscars; appeared in original stage productions of works by Paddy Chayefsky, Neil Simon and Arthur Miller; worked with the directors Frank Capra, John Cassavetes, Blake Edwards and Mike Nichols; and co-starred with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Bette Davis and Jason Robards. Falk had a glass eye, resulting from an operation to remove a cancerous tumor when he was 3 years old. The prosthesis gave all his characters a peculiar, almost quizzical squint. And he had a mild speech impediment that gave his L’s a breathy quality, a sound that emanated from the back of his throat and that seemed especially emphatic whenever, in character, he introduced himself as Lieutenant Columbo.

Obama seeks to restart budget talks

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WORLD/NATION–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will meet separately on Monday with the Democratic and Republican Senate leaders in an opening bid to restart budget talks on addressing long-term debt reduction and clear the way for a necessary vote on raising the nation’s debt limit. The White House press secretary, Jay Carney, announced that Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden would meet first with the Demo-

cratic majority leader, Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, in the morning and then with the Republican minority leader, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, in the early evening “to discuss the status of the negotiations to find common ground on a balanced approach to deficit reduction.” By the administration’s definition, a “balanced approach” means one that reduces the next 10 years’ projected debt by at least $2 trillion through a combination of

spending cuts and tax increases on the highest-income Americans. Republicans’ refusal to consider tax increases led their chief negotiator, Eric Cantor of Virginia, the House majority leader, to abandon the bipartisan budget talks that Mr. Biden had been leading for weeks. In a statement, Mr. McConnell said, “The president needs to decide between his goal of massive tax hikes and a bipartisan plan to address our deficit. But he can’t have both.”

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (NY Times) — The cellphone of Osama bin Laden’s trusted courier, which was recovered in the raid that killed both men in Pakistan last month, contained contacts to a militant group that is a longtime asset of Pakistan’s intelligence agency, senior American officials who have been briefed on the findings say. The discovery indicates that Bin Laden used the group, Harakatul-Mujahedeen, as part of his support network inside the country, the officials and others said. But

it also raised tantalizing questions about whether the group and others like it helped shelter and support Bin Laden on behalf of Pakistan’s spy agency, given that it had mentored Harakat and allowed it to operate in Pakistan for at least 20 years, the officials and analysts said. In tracing the calls on the cellphone, American analysts have determined that Harakat commanders had called Pakistani intelligence officials, the senior American officials said.

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — The House dealt a symbolic blow to President Obama on Friday by resoundingly rejecting a bill that would authorize the contentious operations in Libya. But it muddled the message somewhat by also turning back a measure that would have limited funds for the effort there. The resolution to support the mission failed 295 to 123, with 70 Democrats joining Republicans in a pointed show of defiance to Mr. Obama, who has said he does not need Congressional authorization for the Libyan operations. Only eight Republicans supported the measure, which was based on a Senate measure introduced Tuesday by Senators John Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts, and John McCain, Republican of Arizona. The Senate has yet to take up the McCain-Kerry measure.

Guinta hosting job fair in Rochester Monday BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

(Editor's note: Congressman Frank Guinta, R-Manchester, would like to let his constituents know what he's up to, therefore he's agreed to an end of the month conversation with The Conway Daily Sun. This is the first of the series.) WASHINGTON — Congressman Frank Guinta, R-Manchester, believes creating jobs for New Hampshire's workforce is the top priority for Granite Staters and he's hoping to make a dent in the recession by hosting a job fair in Rochester on Monday. Guinta also spoke about the week that was, including President Obama's troop withdrawal from Afghanistan plan; the increased Republican field for president; and even the Stanley Cup winning Boston Bruins. Guinta will be in New Hampshire this coming week before heading back to the nation's capital. As part of his ongoing “Getting Granite Staters Back to Work” jobs initiative, the former mayor of Manchester will host the job fair Monday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Brady Sullivan Technical Park (ground floor), 35 Industrial Way in Rochester.

The event is free to both job seekers and job creators. "A job creation program is responsibility No. 1" Guinta said by phone on his way to the airport in DC for a flight home. "There are things I can do legislatively to help foster a job environment and one of those is these fairs." Guinta hosted his first job fair in Derry on June 20. About 150 people attended. "The Derry fair went great," he said. "We had about 40 different businesses show up. I talked with a gentleman who has been out of work for the past three years. He's struggling to take care of his family and meet the college needs of a child. There are people in this state who really need help finding work opportunities and our goal is to help as many as we can. I’m committed to bringing together Granite Staters who are looking for work and job creators who are looking for employees.” The schedule is: 10 a.m. – Fair open and greeting. Welcoming remarks from Congressman Guinta. (He is expected to speak between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m.). 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 pm. — Networking and Career Social. Business owners,

World class field expected for the Cranmore Hillclimb BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — For the second year in a row, the entire U.S. Mountain Running Team will be selected at a single race, with this year’s team selection taking place at the 24th annual Cranmore Hill Climb at Cranmore Mountain Resort this Sunday at 9 a.m. The race serves as the 2011 U.S. Mountain Running Championships, with the top six men and top four women in the U.S. Champs being selected to represent the United States at the World Mountain Running Championships in Tirana, Albania on Sept. 11, 2011. Runners from 22 states are expected to make up a field of over 250 runners. The field will be competing for a prize purse of $3,100, funded primarily by primary race sponsor, Northeast Delta Dental. The prize purse is the largest known prize purse for a trail race in New England. “We’re very excited to have Northeast Delta Dental sign on as a sponsor for this year” said Paul Kirsch, race director who is also president of the White Mountain Milers running club. “Tom Raffio and Delta Dental have been such phenomenal supporters of top notch racing in New England, with their sponsorship of Mt.

Running is a great sport for anyone to try, and Delta Dental helps give our region National exposure in the running community.” Kirsch said the course is extremely spectatro friendly and encourages people to come out and watch what figures to be a quality race. The 2011 Cranmore race will consist of three laps up and down the mountain for men, and two laps for women, mimicking the distance at the Albanian World Championships course. Each 3.87 kilometer lap will ascend and descend 206 meters, testing not only the runners climbing and descending abilities, but also their ability to transition between the two. The field for the race is extremely strong with at least 15 former members of the U.S. Mountain Running Team expected. The men’s field includes: Eric Blake (New Britain, Conn.), a five-time member of the mountain team including the 2010 Silver medal team, previous winner of the Mount Washington Road Race and 2010 winner of the

Joe Gray (Lakewood, Wash.), a three-time member of the U.S. Team who finished 10th at the World Mountain Running Championships in Slovenia in 2010 and won the 2009 Cranmore Hill Climb/U.S. Mountain Running Championships. In 2009, the race featured two 5.5-kilometer loops and 2,400 feet of vertical gain that included a mixture of steep climbing, single track terrain, super fast descents, and flat sections across open meadows. Spectators at the base of the mountain could watch the runners as they climbed in the distance and then cheered runners on as they passed the start/finish area for the second and final loop. A former collegiate steeplechaser, Gray, then in his

third season mountain racing, was with a lead pack of seven within the first kilometer which included Simon Gutierrez, 43, Colo; Zac Freudenberg (Montana); Eric Blake (Connecticut), Matt Byrne (Pennsylvania) and Shiloh Mielke (North Carolina). The group stayed together up the first pitch, but at the top of the climb Gray took off. Freudenberg and Gutierrez were in second and third respectively, followed closely by Rickey Gates (Colorado), Byrne and Blake. Mielke didn’t stick with the group on the first downhill. After the first loop, it was Gray leading by about 40 seconds posting a 28-minute loop with Freuden-

Tele-Talk Would you like to see more tax money put toward multi-use recreational paths? A multi-use “Rail Trail” is under construction along a section of the Mountain Division rail line corridor in Fryeburg. The project is being funded with federal ISTEA (Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act) money allocated to the Maine Department of Transportation several years ago. The trail will run about a mile and a half from the Maine Visitors Center on Route 302 east to Porter Road. Plans are to continue the path next year from Porter Road to Airport Road at a cost of about $2 million — also ISTEA money. The long-term vision is to have a multi-use recreational corridor that connects communities along a 52-mile stretch from Fryeburg to Portland. Meanwhile, on the New Hampshire side of the border, a Mount Washington Valley Bike Path organization is looking to “build and maintain a multi-use path within the greater Conway area.” Grants will likely be pursued as part of the funding package for that project. Donations are also being accepted. This week’s Tele-Talk: Would you like to see more tax money put toward multi-use recreational paths?

What the Secretary Said The most important part of last Sunday's interview shows was the part that didn't make much news. It was the part when the departing secretary of defense said that the tone of American political dialogue is posing a threat to the country's security. When secretaries of defense speak of mortal dangers to the nation, they usually speak of enemies armed to the teeth, adversaries with new technologies or terrorist groups with nothing to lose but their lives. But Robert Gates is a different kind of defense secretary, and not because he is from a different party than the president he serves (Robert S. McNamara and William Cohen, both Republicans, were appointed to the Pentagon by Democrats), and not because he served two presidents of two different parties (he's the only one to do that). Robert Gates is different because he has been in government, with some interruptions, since the Nixon-Ford years. That's enough to unsettle both Democrats, who distrust anyone who was recruited in college to work for the CIA (he joined twice), and Republicans, who distrust anyone who has spent most of his life on the public payroll (even his latest interruption, the presidency of Texas A&M, was a public job). Even so, Gates is, along with James A. Baker III, perhaps the greatest non-presidential public servant of the postwar age. One more thing. Perhaps better than anyone alive, he knows how the world works. These days the world isn't working all that well, and the same can be said about Washington. It's the latter that preoccupies Gates, who is to leave office this week. Last Sunday Chris Wallace asked Gates what was the big lesson he had learned during all that time in the capital. Here's his answer on "Fox News Sunday": "That when we have been successful in national security and foreign affairs, it has been because there has been bipartisan support. And agreement between the president and the Congress that the fundamental strategy — maybe not all the tactics, maybe not all the specific decisions — but that the fundamental strategy is the correct one. That's what (happened) through nine presidencies and the Cold War that led to our success, because no major international problem can be solved on one president's watch. And so, unless it has bipartisan support, unless it can be extended over a period of time, the risks of failure (are) high." There's a lot of experience in that paragraph, and a lot of wisdom, too. It applies to foreign policy, to be sure, but it also applies to domestic policy. At the heart of Gates' critique is the loss of bipartisanship, but bipartisanship cannot be forced, or learned. What can be learned is the lesson that many of America's problems, domestic and international, aren't matters for one presidential term but instead are themes that slop over from one administration to another. We should not need Gates to tell us that. While the Nazi threat was the concern of only one president (two, if you count the first month of Harry Truman's administration), the slavery issue occupied a dozen presidents. Reconstruction occupied four presidents, maybe more if you count the spillover effects. You could argue that civil rights occupied all 44 presidents. Iran has

been an irritant, or at best a minor aggravation, for six presidents, Iraq for four. The biggest threat facing the country is economic right now, and let's stipulate from the start that all presidencies are in a sense about economics. We think of George Washington as having left an important foreign policy legacy, but his Farewell Address, and the admonition to avoid foreign involvement, came only in the final months of his presidency. The greatest impact probably came from that engine of economic ideas in his administration, Alexander Hamilton. But budget woes have haunted every one of the last eight presidents, and worries about entitlements have been a major preoccupation of the last five. A bipartisan commission on Social Security added some stability to the system in the early Reagan years, but all sensible people agree that the topic has to be taken on again, and that this time Medicare has to be part of the equation. Compromise is a lost art in American civic life and increasingly regarded as one of the dark arts. The country was built on compromise, both at the Second Continental Congress and at the Constitutional Convention. Yet we also honor the politician or statesman who stands alone and stands firm. This contradiction is at the heart of our history, and an American Ecclesiastes might say that there is a time to stand and a time to stand down. The times to stand are when great principles are at stake — in civil rights, for example, where there is now an American consensus, and on abortion, where there remains no American consensus. The times to stand firm are almost always moral issues, questions of right or wrong. But even in a country built on commerce there are few economic issues that are as starkly moral as slavery and abortion. There is room to compromise on most of them. Today it is not possible to serve both parties' priorities — the Democrats' demand that the sanctity of benefit levels be preserved, the Republicans' demand that the programs be solvent. That is an overstatement, but both parties have been hiding behind their own overstatements for some time. There is political purity in these arguments, but not moral purity. Members of both parties know that the benefit levels and the level of taxation imposed to support those benefits have changed since Social Security was passed in 1935 and Medicare was passed in 1965. Let's not forget that both programs were passed with bipartisan support. On the Fox television show last Sunday, Wallace asked Gates what he worried about most. Gates' answer was simple: "A loss of bipartisanship." Said the man who served presidents of both parties: "I think that the kind of relationships that I've had on the Hill show that when individuals make this effort, they can make headway. They can make progress, and at least (have) civil conversation about these issues." Right now bipartisanship is gone. Gone — but not forgotten. David M.

Fund-raising challenge for fireworks show Dear Editor: The Madison Old Home Week Committee has come to the regretful decision that because of the economy we do not feel it is in the best interest of Old Home Week to put on the annual fireworks display that has become a highly anticipated event in Madison. We have put aside from our own funds $3,000 for the 2012 Old Home Week fireworks show. We are aware that many outside of Madison enjoy the show every year and if we could find a way to have the show this year, we would. In a final effort to put on the show this year, we would like to put out a challenge to all of those who enjoy the

fireworks show to match our funds of $3,000. If we can raise this amount before July 12, we would still be able to schedule the show for Aug. 12. We have not asked for any taxpayer funding but feel that this is a great family event that brings our community together for all the right reasons. Donations can be mailed to Madison Old Home Week, c/o Madison Town Offices, P.O. Box 248, Madison, NH 03849 or dropped off at town hall. We appreciate any and all donations. Sincerely, Candy Sue Jones Madison Old Home Week Committee

Antics and abuses in county government To the editor: Have you been following Representative Frank McCarthy's expose' citing the antics, abuses and goings on in Carroll County Government? I have! The gimmickry of the county commissioners (including pseudo commissioner Albee)? The disrespect, disregard and disparagement of commissioner Asha Kenney? The arrogant usurpation of

authority and subsequent policy directives of former Commissioner Chip Albee? So my questions are: What's the plan in terms of auditing and correcting these invectives? What's our county attorney gonna do? What's the AG gonna do? What's the Legislature, DRA, ethics people — anybody — gonna do? Just curious. Raymond Shakir North Conway

To the Summit Europe was being consumed by the flames of war in 1916, but gentility was still widespread on the high peaks in our neighborhood. The first hotel on the summit of Mount Washington was built in 1853, but it was soon destroyed by flames and fires became a problem in that remote place. And, inevitably, they also provided a famous spectacle that’s remembered in a nighttime photograph showing something like a New Hampshire volcano. There was also a summertime newspaper called “Among the Clouds” complete with a professional printing plant on the summit, an editorial staff, and four fulltime reporters. This was published from 1877 until the exigencies of war closed it in 1917 and, sadly, only two complete runs seem to have survived, one is in Gorham, the nearest town library to the summit, and one is in Hanover, New Hampshire. A bridle path up the up the east side of the mountain from Pinkham Notch to the summit was opened in 1861, and for latterday readers I hasten to explain that this was not an aisle to matrimony, the bridles were on horses. This must have been a jolting ride, but it was also widely popular and a number of bridle paths found favor with tourists. One started in suburban Bartlett and went to the summit of Mount Washington along the Montalban Ridge, a jolting ride of two days and, presumably, the same coming back. Another climbed Kearsarge Mountain in suburban North Conway and included a steep slab of rock that is no easy thing in sneakers, which were not provided for horses, and a third bridle path went up Mt. Chocorua. One summer I went over each of these trails trying to take a horses-eye view and found an important question. Working horses are water-intensive, they need gallons of it, but once out of the lowlands there was no water on any of the trails except a small stream on Stairs Mountain that would hardly be enough to let one horse clear his throat, much less ten or twelve of them drink their fill. Were there tanker horses? Water found another important application. A steam-driven cog railway on the west side of Mount Washington was ready in the 1860s, but first the plan had to get a charter from the law-makers in Concord, where a skeptical member snorted, “Whoever heard the like? Might as well try to build a railway to the moon!” The backers of the idea were well-provided with expertise. Indeed, one of the principles among them had perfected a knitting device that would produce tubular material, and ever since then ladies should be thanking him for their stockings. The engine gained another endorsement from home. The steam boiler was vertical with a smoke stack on top and it gained fame as “Peppersass,” which was Yankee-talk for the pepper sauce bottles in most kitchens, and stylish adventurers were easily persuaded that mountains were best climbed while sitting down. Those days were flood tide for the great hotels and a traveler at The Profile House in Franconia Notch wrote, “We stayed over for a week and, having ample time for dis-

tinct impressions to sink into my mind of the Old Man, the Cannon, the Flume, the Basin, and the Pool, where even at that early date the erratic Philosopher’ was expounding his odd theories of the earth’s hollowness and ferrying visitors about the strange little body of water.” A mural-sized picture of the Philosopher at work can be seen in Yesterdays Restaurant in Jackson. Roads and even railroad lines were being built up a number of the mountains where pleasing prospects were plentiful and questions of safety on the steep rail tracks were inevitable, though some reassurances were conditional, at best. “The new (air) brake proved more than successful. Not only would it hold the car anywhere, but it would work at any time, and automatically at that, setting itself whenever and wherever the spirit of depravity so moved. Repeatedly we came to an unheralded stop, when all hands had to climb out of the car upon the rocks until the brake could be induced by the gentle persuasion of a crowbar to release its grip; the engine would then resume its pushing of the car uphill and everybody would scramble on board as best as he could, to remain until air again overcame the energy of the steam and the starting process had to be repeated.” Absolute trust for life and limb had to be placed with the man in charge of the enterprise, and the writer is pleased to recommend the driver for his trip up Mount Washington. “What a marvel that those sixhorse stages were so rarely upset, and what skill the drivers displayed, far greater, it seems to me, than that of the modern chauffeur. The successful driver of a stage coach in the White Mountains was a man of force of character and not infrequently graduated from his seat to a place of responsibility in the community.” The roster of modern chauffeurs would eventually include me, and by that time one of the serious questions about wheels on Mount Washington had been settled. This had come with automatic transmissions. Up until that time, a car could be slowed by shifting to a lower gear, a technique that will be familiar to everyone who has ever driven a stick-shift car. The new cars had what was popularly known as “fluid drive,” meaning that there were no hard surfaces as there were in conventional clutch plates, power was transmitted by stirring fluids rather like a housewife preparing batter, and this would not slow a car enough down eight miles and 4688 vertical feet, so these cars were not allowed on the summit auto road. Design changes solved this problem, and now almost anything that will roll has been seen on the climb including a vehicle at The Alternate Fuel Regatta that was powered by chicken droppings, but history does not record how much chicken feed and how many chickens in continuous production would be needed to supply the market model, nor do we know how many urban zoning codes could accommodate the necessary rural establishments and how many urban neighborhoods would want such a filling station.

PINKHAM NOTCH — It's been 10 years since the last “Climb to the Clouds” automobile hillclimb was held on the 100-plus cornered Mount Washington Auto Road. It's back big time this weekend, June 25 and 26. With new technology, the question among race car enthusiasts is: Will records be broken? Very likely, depending on the whether the weather dries out, say veteran watchers of the challenging hillclimb, which takes to the 7.6-mile road Sunday morning, June 26. “I would be very surprised if the record doesn't fall,” said event director Paul Giblin, of Vermont SportsCar of Colchester, Vt. Vermont SportsCar is the group organizing this year's race, which is sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of New Hampshire. The old course record of 6 minutes, 41.99 seconds was set in 1998 in an Audi S2 by Frank Sprongl of Ontario, Canada. That time was unofficially broken in a test run last September by four-time Rally America National Champion Travis Pastrana in a Vermont SportsCar prepared, BFGoodrich Tires-shod 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car. see next page

Pastrana averaged 72 mph on the 7.6-mile road to break record a time of 6 minutes 20.47 seconds, besting Sprongl's previous record by more than 20 seconds. “Given reasonable weather conditions Sunday, that very fast time could fall,” said Auto Road president Howie Wemyss after Friday morning's practice runs to the halfway point in the rain. Some are saying the times could fall under 6 minutes — a startlingly fast achievement. Amazingly, Pastrana achieved his impressive “unofficial” time on his first ever high-speed run to the summit. He will not be in the field this weekend, according to Giblin, as he has left the rally circuit to race NASCAR. Top contenders Gunning for overall victory and a new overall course record will be a trio of past record holders — as well as a multi-time British and American Rally champion. The past champions include multi-time rally champion Tim O’Neil from Whitefield; seven-time SCCA ProRally Champion Paul Choiniere from Shelburne, Vt.; and Sprongl, a six-time Canadian Rally Champion. These drivers all hold records within a minute of each other and will be racing in the Open “ This is likely to Class at the Climb to the be one of the best Clouds. Joining them as a fourth con- roads I have ever tender is David Higgins, the competed on and multi-time British and AmeriI’m really looking can Rally Champion. Higgins will be driving forward to it.” Subaru Rally Team USA's latest specification 2011 Subaru WRX STI. Higgins will drive a lightened and more powerful version of his Vermont SportsCar prepared 2011 Subaru STI that he has driven this season in the Rally America National Championship, where he has won three events in a row and leads the driver standings with just one round remaining. Higgins’ Subaru STI represents an evolution of the car that Pastrana utilized last fall to unofficially best the Mount Washington Hillclimb record. Pastrana made his feat with a rally car co-driver; drivers in the race's Open Class are not granted such a luxury. “After looking at the video from Pastrana’s impressive run, I know this road is going to be a mega challenge,” explained Higgins in a statement posted on the official website for the race, “On notes with a co-driver would be just like a rally for me, but doing it on my own with such a light and powerful car is going to be one of the biggest challenges I have ever encountered. It would be really cool to have that record though, and I plan on going for it! This is likely to be one of the best roads I have ever competed on and I’m really looking forward to it.” ••• Other notable drivers going for the overall record include Jimmy Keeney, of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Todd Cook from Tempe, Ariz. — both of whom will be driving purpose built open-wheel hillclimb cars with upwards of 900 horsepower, but only twowheel drive. Keeney was the second-fastest qualifier at the 2010 Pikes Peak International Hillclimb and Cook is a multi-time class winner at Pikes Peak. Two other open-wheeled cars entered are the 1968 McKee MK8, a Formula 5000-based car raced by Robert D'Amore from Arlington, Mass., and “The Patriot,” a bespoke hillclimb car built and raced by longtime Mount Washington competitor Jerry Driscoll. Driscoll, who makes his home in East Randolph, Vt., set the current speed record of 113 mph on the Mount Washington Auto Road course in 1998 driving the very same car he’ll be racing this weekend. see next page

Among the local contestants in Sunday’s “Climb to the Clouds” will be Slim Bryant of Conway, who will be competing in his Porsche 944. Bryant drives the Snowcat for the Mount Washington Observatory in winter and part time for the Auto Road in summer. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTO)

Truckin’ on Mount Washington The entry list also includes several high-powered openwheel cars, a vintage class filled with cars steeped in motorsports history and a first for the event; a purpose-built race-truck. That latter vehicle is a Freightliner 14.7 liter turbo-diesel-powered race-truck, which will compete in a one-truck only Special Class. “It's going to be quite the sight to see that truck going up the road — the road has never seen anything like this before!” said Giblin this week. Driven by Mike Ryan, of Santa Clara, Calif., the truck features nearly 2,000 horsepower. “Mike has driven it to win at Pikes Peak 12 times. When he's not racing, he's a Hollywood stunt man, who has appeared in over 300 movies,” added Giblin, saying this is the first time that Ryan has driven the truck in the East. In all, 71 racers and nine classes will be featured, with local driver Slim Bryant and his Porsche 944 among those in the field. ••• The two-wheel drive and allwheel drive rally classes will be headlined by defending Rally America, North American and Canadian rally champion Antoine L'Estage in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and former Subaru factory rally driver Ramana Lagemann from Somerville, Mass., in a 2010 Subaru WRX STI. The all-wheel drive class will be a showdown between the makes as five Subaru and five Mitsubishi rally cars are entered.

The Climb to the Clouds was first held in 1904, and is considered the oldest motorsports event in the country. Last held in 2001, it is being held this weekend as part of the Mount Washington Auto Road’s 150th birthday celebration. (JAMIE GEMMITI PHOTOS)

Higgins tops practice runs Friday BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

Fifty-nine Climb to the Clouds drivers made practice runs in the rain to the halfway point of the Mount Washington Auto Road Friday. David Higgins had the best time of 3 minutes, 44.07 seconds, driving his Vermont SportsCar-prepared 2011 Subaru STI. Second was Dr. Jon Kemp in a 2000 Mitsubishi Evolution VI in 4:03.60. Third was Todd Cook in a 2000 TCE/ Wells Coyote in 4:07.96. Past record holder Paul Choiniere

was fifth in a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon in 4:12.02. Past champion Tim O’Neil was sixth in a 2005 Subaru WRX STI in 4:19.02. Of local interest, driver Slim Bryant of Conway was 34th in a Porsche 944 in 5:03.40. Bryant is a longtime local mechanic and race car enthusiast. One could say he has a slight advantage over his fellow competitors, as he knows every corner on the road. That’s because Bryant is a Snowcat driver in winter for the Mount Washington Observatory and a parttime stage driver for the Mount Washington Auto Road in summer.

“I first met Lance here in 1999 at the race, and later I left to work for him,” said Giblin. “He and I have always talked about bringing it back, because it was such a part of the road's history. So, we met with Howie three years ago and talked of bringing it back as part of the 150th. It has come back bigger and better, and it has generated quite a lot of media excitement from throughout the country.” Event schedule The 2011 Mount Washington Hillclimb got under way with practice runs in the rain Friday, and continues with practice runs Saturday morning. A concert and fireworks were slated for Friday evening, weather permitting, and Saturday's activities are to include practice runs in the early morning, followed from noon to 6 p.m. by displays of vintage cars at the paddock area, food vendors, and a concert at 8 p.m. by TAB the Band, a group that has toured with Aerosmith and Stone Temple Pilots.

prospective employees, sales people and others can meet, mingle and discuss opportunities over light snacks. During the job fair, Congressman Guinta will talk with both job seekers and job creators. He will take the information and stories they share with him and continue to apply it to his legislative duties in Washington. “The government shouldn’t create jobs; they must come from job creators in the private sector," he said. "The best way to return our country to prosperity is to listen to job creators and job seekers and make sure they get the assistance they want, instead of what Washington thinks they need. My 'Getting Granite Staters Back to Work' jobs initiative is focused on delivering that, and it’s the approach I’m taking to lower unemployment and to help small businesses grow and expand.” President Barack Obama announced Wednesday night that all the 33,000 additional U.S. forces he ordered to Afghanistan in December 2009 will be home within 15 months. In a nationally televised address from the White House, Obama said 10,000 of the "surge" forces would withdraw by the end of this year, and the other 23,000 would leave Afghanistan by September 2012. Calling the deployment of the surge "one of the most difficult decisions that I've made as president," Obama said the military campaign was "meeting our goals" in Afghanistan and the drawdown would begin "from a position of strength." Guinta is pleased to see troops coming home “President Obama’s decision is welcome news to those whose loved ones are serving in Afghanistan.," he said. "Like them, I want to see American troops return home as soon as possible. I think most Americans have war fatigue and most want to see them come home as soon as possible." Guinta hopes the nation's military leaders are behind the withdrawal. "I sincerely hope the president’s decision to drawdown U.S. troops comes from the best

advice of American generals in the field, and serves our country’s best interests as well.," he said. "With the initial surge, the generals were recommending sending 40,000 troops, not the 30,000 the president decided upon. Decisions of this magnitude should be based on the situation on the ground, not on arbitrary dates on a calendar. I hope that will be the basis for all future decisions regarding Afghanistan as well. We need to ensure a successful hand-over to Afghanistan people. My prime concern is we don't want to have to go back there once we leave.” On the presidential theme, Guinta admits there are Republican candidates courting his endorsement and support, but he's not ready to commit just yet. "I am undecided at this point," he said, laughing. "Like every other Granite Stater when they have the debates, I'm going to listen, gather information, attend some house parties and then figure out who I think can win the White House. I want someone who understands the economy and is focused like a laser on job creation. I want someone who is willing to make the tax cuts fairer and simpler for Americans." Guinta "firmly believes" a couple of people already in the Republican field can unseat President Obama. "I think we have

a very strong field of candidates," he said. "Granite Staters are starting to get a feel for the candidates." Last week Guinta introduced a bill to scrap the Health Care Reform Act's Auto Enrollment Provision. He said it's gaining momentum and already has 30 House members signing on as co-sponsors. "It's getting momentum," he said. "We all understand and want to reduce the costs of health care. I think this piece of legislation has a great opportunity to gain bipartisan support." Guinta said he hopes to "remove one of the most burdensome mandates included in last year's national health-care reform overhaul (officially known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act)" when he introduced H.R. 2206, the Auto Enroll Repeal Act of 201 on June 16. The existing law contains a provision saying that in 2014, businesses with more than 200 employees must automatically "enroll new fulltime employees" into one of that company's healthcare plans while continuing "the enrollment of current full-time employees" as well. "Businesses face an undue hardship," Guinta said. "For example, those that have a high employee turnover rate, such as the food service industry, would be especially hard hit. Restau-

Man on bail for alleged rape arrested on drug charge BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — A man who was out on bail facing rape charges is back in jail after he was arrested Monday on drug charges. John Ohanasian, 49, of 101 Prospect Road, was arrested on a charge of common nuisance, illegal drug use abode. The complaint alleges Ohanasian provided a location for the storing, using and/or selling of drugs, a class B felony that could put him in prison for up to seven years if he is convicted. He is already facing aggravated felonious sexual assault charges in Carroll County Superior Court. Ohanasian was arraigned on the most recent charges in Conway District Court on Monday. The judge sent him to jail in anticipation that his bail on the rape charges would be revoked. The arrest comes three weeks after three other people were arrested in Ohanasian’s Prospect Road home and an ambulance took Ohanasian to the hospital. Ohanasian was overdosing on antidepressants on the last day of May when a probation officer stopped by his residence to check in on someone else who lived there. The probation officer called an ambulance for Ohanasian, who was first reported to be having a dia-

betic seizure. The probation officer also saw illegal drugs in the residence and called police. Three people — Cody Webster, 19, and Alfredo Petrone, 23, both on probation for burglary, and Christina McIntyre, 22, on probation for drug possession — were all arrested for violating probation. Officers returned to the residence later with a search warrant. They found drugs, $6,000 cash, syringes and other drug paraphernalia, Conway Police Lt. Chris Perley said at the time. The drugs were either cocaine or heroine. Ohanasian, who spent time in the hospital following the overdose, was out on $25,000 bail at the time of the incident. He is facing aggravated felonious sexual assault charges for allegedly raping one young boy and fondling another. He pleaded not guilty to those charges in August of last year. A grand jury formally charged him in December. Now he will now face a second set of charges, likely also in superior court. Judge Pamela Albee did set a bail amount — $10,000 cash — for the most recent charges in the event that superior court does not revoke Ohanasian’s bail. In that case, according to bail conditions, there will have to be another hearing for setting additional conditions. His next court date is scheduled for June 28. for consideration this fall. "I'd love for it to get expedited but we've got to get through the appropriations process first," he said. Guinta, who plans to attend his son Jack's kindergarten graduation this weekend, said he was thrilled to see the Boston Bruins hoist the Stanley Cup. "I know how excited New Hampshire and all of New England are," he said. "The Bruins were phenomenal in the playoffs and were such gentlemen in winning the Cup, we should all be proud of them." Told the Cup might be coming to Conway in future thanks to John Whitesides Jr., the strength and conditioning coach for the Bruins, Guinta would like to come see it in Conway. "Good for the people of Conway, they deserve it. If I could work it into my schedule, I'd come see it, too."

Dinner Bell: Serving the community for 20 years BY SHANNON REVILLE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The Conway Village Congregational Church has been serving the community dinner every Monday night for 20 years, and this Monday night at 5 p.m., the church will celebrate this accomplishment appropriately — by continuing to feed as many hungry members of the community as possible. The very first “Dinner Bell” was on Monday January 15, 1991. Since then the church has changed a lot, updating equipment, getting donations and grants, and increasing number of attendees. One thing will never change, though: A meal will be served every Monday night at 5 p.m. When I walked in to the church last Monday, it was obvious to me that the volunteers are incredibly important to this function. Not only that, but they have a lot of fun doing this, and are see DINNER BELL 22

proud to be working for the greater good of Conway. “The people who eat here come from all walks of life,” volunteer Roy Bubb explains, “and with the economy the way it is, we’re seeing more and more people every time.” Volunteers agree that numbers are going up, and Rev. Martell Spagnolo is anticipating a very busy summer for the Dinner Bell. “When kids are in school they often get breakfast and lunch in the cafeteria,” he says, “and then summer

hits and all of a sudden those constant meals are gone. For kids in low-income households, that’s devastating.” Martell is happy that for at least one night, the Dinner Bell can take that weight off parents’ shoulders. Benny Jessman has been volunteering at the Dinner Bell since 1992 and knows, just like all the other volunteers, how important this meal is to the community. “It is not just about getting fed,” she says, “there is a social part of this, too. We offer companionship to a

lot of people who would otherwise be very lonely tonight.” Benny is also quick to stick up for the quality of a Dinner Bell meal. “We are not a soup kitchen. We use real silverware and plates; we always have fresh salad and fruit. We’ve had steak, fish and pork. It is always good. Bob Howe and Barbara Hoyt do an amazing job.” Every volunteer at the Dinner Bell seems to agree that the cooking crew, consisting of Bob Howe and Barbara Hoyt, does a great job. Howe and Hoyt come in early and start to prepare the food, spend hours in the kitchen making enough for an unknown amount of people, and use their free time to get extra goodies, like fresh vegetables from Sherman Farms. “It’s definitely like a full-time job for them,” says Rev. Spagnolo, “but they would never tell you that.” They had Shepherd’s Pie on the night that I volunteered at the Dinner Bell, and it really was good. With a salad on the side, sliced peaches, chocolate milk, and a huge variety of desserts to choose from, it was all very good. My job was to pass out silverware to each attendee as they walked down the serving line. Looking around I couldn’t help but notice how happy everyone was. Every parent, every

child, every elderly couple, every single man in his work uniform, all of them wore a smile on their face. And the volunteers smiled too. Like Maddie Costello, who from the moment I walked in smiled at me and made me feel welcome. She did this with everyone who came in the door that night. Before leaving I looked over the dining room. There were far more people than I had expected, and I knew they weren’t all friends, but the way they socialized and ate together made it seem otherwise.

For just one night, nobody had to worry about how they were going to feed themselves or their families. They were able to simply eat, chat and have a good time. Even get seconds if they wanted to. It was truly a community dinner, and after experiencing it I am not surprised that the Dinner Bell has stayed around for so long. It really is a wonderful evening. For more information go to the Conway Village Congregational Church (“The Brown Church”) on Monday night at 5 p.m. and grab a bite to eat.

or boots without her assistance. In the summer months she can be found on the deck in front of the shop usually looking into the window at Elvio’s. She tells everyone that will listen to her that we never feed her and is in danger of starving to death. She is not beyond telling a white lie. Summer will not leave the deck unless enticed by someone she knows and she will never bark or leave for another dog. Again this is something she taught herself with only an occasional admonishment from me. The first few days when Summer came on board were a little trying, no

doubt for both of us, but she soon got settled in. When she takes a rare day off I am always amazed at how many people will inquire as to her whereabouts. I am pretty sure that the tellers at our bank do not know my name, however, they do know Summer’s and she always gets a treat. All and all she has proven her worth both on the river and in the shop. Oh, and by the way it was Janet’s birthday this month as well. See you on the river. Bill and Janet Thompson own North Country Angler in North Conway.

At that point, after a steep climb, you savor being so close to a half way rest stop at the hut (with hopefully some left over baked goodies out on the counter for hikers to purchase at a bargain price), and you saunter up to the hut slowly. I reached the side of the hut and looked over at the dining room, which extends out from the main building to the west. In 1968, during my years on the AMC Construction Crew, we built the stone foundation and cellar for the dining room (the wooden dining room and roof were built the next summer). Since then, the cellar beneath the dining room

has been the hut’s emergency winter shelter. In the summer, Appalachian Trail thru-hikers often sleep in it. I went into the hut, purchased a left over muffin that had my name on it, and sat on a long bench in the dining room. Later I climbed 1.5 miles up the Crawford Path to the summit of Mount Washington. Surely this is one of the best ways to really “grok” what people mean when they call the mountain the “rock pile.” A couple groups were also climbing from “Lakes” to the summit. I got to the top about 10 a.m., and it was fairly quiet, though cog trains had been coming up every hour. I walked into the Sherman Adams Building, and

noticed that the tiny post office was still closed for the off-season, and would be opening soon. That reminded me of Walter the postman who had been at the summit for many years. I had a strange feeling, and at the State Park info desk, I asked if he was still alive. The answer was “no.” He had passed on more than a year ago. I had to find out more about Walter, who, over time, I had bumped into in the most unusual places. I happened to see a long time summit employee in the building, and asked if she knew what Walter’s full name was, and where he had lived when off the mountain. The next day I looked him up.

from preceding page

Walter Mitchell was from Fall River, Massachusetts. I first met him, ensconced in his tiny summit post office in the Sherman Adams Building, in the mid-eighties. Yet he had worked on the summit since the early 1960s, first as night watchman at the old hotel, then as manager of the hotel in the late 60s while it was still owned by the Cog Railroad and offered overnight accommodations (by the 70s, it offered no amenities but a snack bar, post office and restrooms). After his brief stint as manager, he was offered the job of clerk in charge of the summit post office, a job he held for 40 summers until his death at age 66. In his other life, Mitchell was a teacher and elementary school librarian in Fall River. A 30 year member of the board of directors of the Fall River Historical Society, he was an authority on Fall River history, on which he lectured and wrote. An appreciator of the mystery and ritual of his Catholic upbringing, he also loved music, and went to as many organ concerts as he could. After meeting him on the summit, I surprisingly bumped into him a few times at organ concerts in Boston. Later, when I climbed the mountain, I would say hi, and we would briefly ponder that second intersection of our lives, while listening to music. The last time I saw him was at the Bach Festival in North Conway, when he met my girlfriend. I only ever saw Walter’s Bunyanesque form either sitting in a pew or perched on his Post Office seat. But I

heard that before his heart issues, and when he was younger, he hiked a lot in the mountains. I didn’t linger long on the summit, and headed over the Trinity Heights Connector to the Gulfside Trail, soon crossing the Cog Railway tracks. I had lunch on the trail right next to the drop-off into the Great Gulf. Like a lot of days this summer, it was fair and dry, but hazy in the distance. The tiny Spaulding Lake at the base of the Great Gulf headwall — usually a deep blue — looked gray. A cog train descended the nearby tracks. It had a smokeless engine. Later I found out that the Cog Railroad now has four “smokeless” biodiesel engines, and two smoky coal powered steam engines. Asked if they plan to eventually phase out all steam engines, they said no, if possible. They would like to hold on to some tradition. I took off again after lunch, meeting many hikers coming my way-- some going from Madison Hut to Lakes of the Clouds, some having come up the Jewell Trail and heading for the summit. Finally I reached the junction with the Jewell Trail and headed down it towards timbeline. It was easy to contrast the summer Jewell Trail with winter, as it is one of my favorite trails up to the Northern Presidentials in the winter. After moving endlessly from rock to rock all morning, I thought that it was so much easier in the winter. But then again, one doesn’t encounter so many people enjoying the mountains.

“You Are Welcome!”

Located on Route 113, east of Route 16


by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams


By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Making yourself a priority feels strange at first, but you’ll soon get used to it. You’ll get along with yourself better inside your own head, and you’ll also relate to others in a way that’s more fulfilling. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone is dreaming of a future with you. This person is sensitive to your real feelings, qualities and desires. Do you also want something so permanent and serious? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In the past, you’ve concocted fantasies in your head that rarely resemble what really happens. As you gain experience, the fantasy gets more and more realistic and becomes likely to happen as you dream it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Someone with a big bag of problems will enjoy telling you about them. You can listen without getting involved, as long as you are not drained by the process. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re impulsive, especially when you get around that certain inspiring someone. Your pulse quickens, and you feel ready to seize opportunities and dive deeper into life. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 25). Your competitive urges are a sign of health and vitality. It’s only natural to want the best for yourself and your people. Keep your spirit of competition in check and channel it well, and July brings victory. There will be a windfall in August. A chase begins in September and lasts indefinitely. There’s a heartfelt reunion in November. Taurus and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 38, 50, 32 and 27.

Cul de Sac

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Greater physical challenge will improve your life on many levels. Initially, your motivation to push yourself may be low, but you are eventually going to feel better as a result of doing this. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life brings a whacky new influence into your world. You have no idea how this strange turn of events will fit in with your particular goals, interests and priorities, but stay open-minded, and it all comes together. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can afford to be choosy when it comes to adding new people to your support system. The one who appears to be impacted by your conversation is potentially a good match for you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You feel friendly and warm toward a person. Yet, you also recognize appropriate boundaries, perhaps having to do with the context of the relationship or the environment you share. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are still gathering information about a person or situation. You will make the best decisions regarding this scene at a later date. So for now, suspend your judgments and evaluations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You do not think of yourself as superior, but even so, conversation and interaction could take an unwieldy turn and be wrongly interpreted. Tread lightly. Realize that people can be overly touchy at times, and move on. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Persistence often wins out, but that doesn’t mean you should keep trying something that’s not working. Change it up. And borrow a few moves from someone who is winning.

Today is Saturday, June 25, the 176th day of 2011. There are 189 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On June 25, 1950, war broke out in Korea as forces from the communist North invaded the South. On this date: In 1788, Virginia ratified the U.S. Constitution. In 1876, Lt. Col. George A. Custer and his 7th Cavalry were wiped out by Sioux and Cheyenne Indians in the Battle of the Little Bighorn in Montana. In 1910, President William Howard Taft signed the White-Slave Traffic Act, more popularly known as the Mann Act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for “immoral” purposes. In 1938, the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 was enacted. In 1951, CBS transmitted the first commercial color telecast from New York to four other cities using its field sequential system that was incompatible with existing black and white TVs. In 1962, the Supreme Court, in Engel v. Vitale, ruled that recital of a state-sponsored prayer in New York State public schools was unconstitutional. In 1981, the Supreme Court ruled that male-only draft registration was constitutional. In 2009, death claimed Michael Jackson, the “King of Pop,” in Los Angeles at age 50 and actress Farrah Fawcett in Santa Monica, Calif. at age 62.

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: I am a teenage girl and my family is important to me. I really wish I could treat them better. My mom and I always fight. She says little things and I get mad at her. I feel bad for snapping at her and my sisters all the time because I really want them to know how much they mean to me. They are the best family you could ever get, and I just push them away. Mom is going through a lot of health problems, and I know my being mean won’t help her get better. Abby, help me, please. -- TEENAGE GIRL IN OHIO DEAR TEENAGE GIRL: The first thing you need to remember is that because your mother is experiencing health problems, she may not be at her best -- which is why she says some of those “little things” that make you angry. Before you react and take them personally, you need to remind yourself that she may be having a bad day. When you are upset and under stress, you should not take it out on your sisters. A better way to cope would be, rather than saying something hurtful, to leave the room or take a walk and organize your thoughts. You’ll then be better able to communicate your feelings in a rational way and avoid a fight. Please try it. These are skills that take practice, but if you master them they will serve you for a lifetime. Now, go hug your mother, tell her you love her and apologize. DEAR ABBY: I am extremely overweight (5-foot-6 and 331 pounds). I am 38 years old, and the weight is now catching up with me. It hurts to get up in the morning. My knees hurt walking up the stairs, and I can’t bear to look at myself (to the point that I will not go out except to work). I have started to pull away from my family.

“Just lose the weight”? Easier said than done! I lost 110 pounds, then gained it back and more. I don’t know who to turn to, but I know I need help. -- TOO BIG TO ENJOY LIFE DEAR TOO BIG: I’m glad you wrote, because I’m going to recommend a multi-pronged approach. The first person to contact is your physician, and tell him or her that you are ready to take off the weight and you need help. Then ask for a referral to a psychologist, to help you understand the emotional reasons you have put on so much weight, and also an American Dietetic Association-registered nutritionist who can help you craft a healthy eating program that works for you. You will also have to make some lifestyle changes, but they will SAVE YOUR LIFE. And remember, losing weight will take time. You didn’t put it on overnight; it won’t come off overnight. But by writing to me you have already taken your first step in the right direction, and I’m urging you to continue moving down the same path. DEAR ABBY: We are stumped about how to handle a situation with our grandchildren. Is it OK to set different rules in our home than they have in their own home? We are inclined to limit running or wrestling indoors, but our daughter (their mother) doesn’t feel that’s necessary. At different times both children have been injured or gotten into trouble that could have been avoided by having a “no running or wrestling inside” rule. Is it our place to establish rules for our home? -- CONCERNED IN TEXAS DEAR C.I.T.: Absolutely, and without QUESTION it is your place to establish the rules of conduct in YOUR household!

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at: Dear Abby, c/o The Conway Daily Sun, PO Box 1940, North Conway, NH 03860

is confident she can incubate her two eggs without ever being discovered in the sun-dappled shade. Her eyes are mere slits then, but open round and large at night as she takes to the air. Whip-poor-wills move rapidly, with their large mouths extended wide to trap flying insects with the speed and dexterity of a bat. They rarely fly more than 25 feet above the ground. The whip-poor-will's lifestyle works another astonishing miracle. The bird's reproductive life cycle conforms to the waxing and waning of the moon. Hatching out when the moon is at its brightest, the new young are easily satisfied by their parents, who hunt most effectively in full moonlight. In recent years, we have lost up to 50 percent of these ground-nesting, neo-tropical migrants. New Hampshire Audubon staff and volunteers are presently venturing into the darkness to study whip-poor-wills and determining habitat needs. Dave Eastman also broadcasts “Country Ecology” four times weekly over WMWV 93.5 fm.

Barbara Ray

Margaret Mills receives the Quality of Life Award for Carroll County Harvard has just completed a 20 year study which states that potato chips and French fries contribute to the greatest weight gain over time. Not great news for us chip and fry lovers. It seems that over a four-year period, potato chip fans can gain 1.69 pounds. You should note the average weight gain in this study was 3.35 pounds. Sugary drink lovers gained 1 pound over the same period. The good news: sweets and desserts caused the smallest gains. Who knew? Since no mention was made of pizza in this study I want to remind everyone that this Thursday, June 30, the Gibson center will be participating in another Flatbread fundraiser. Buy any pizza that day between the hours of 4 to 9 p.m. and a percentage of those sales will go to Gibson. Then on Saturday, July 2 we’ll be holding our annual Fourth of July craft fair.

Finally it is my great pleasure to tell you that our own Margaret “Peggy” Mills received the Quality of Life Award for Carroll County at this year’s RSVP volunteer luncheon. In all her volunteer activities Peggy has always shown the utmost dedication and commitment, a keen curiosity, an open-mindedness and willingness to experiment with new approaches and a thoroughness beyond basic requirements. She is a treasure to the Gibson Center and Carroll County RSVP and a model for senior volunteerism. Congratulations Peggy. Have a good week and pray for our troops.

Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company returns with new season of professional theater Page 42 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 25, 2011

CONWAY — The Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company embarks on its 41st season of Broadway musicals. The celebrated company brings talented professional actors, directors, designers and technicians to the balley from New York and all over the country, many of whom are on their way to careers on Broadway, in film and on TV. The season opens on June 30 with one of the most beloved musicals of all time: "Annie," the story of the spunky orphan girl who brings joy and hope to the whole country at a pivotal moment in the Great Depression, as she wins the heart of wealthy Daddy Warbucks, who adopts her. Then, "Damn Yankees," the classic story of a baseball fan who sells his soul to become the best baseball player of all time and lead his team to defeat the damn Yankees, opens July 12. Featuring great

songs like “(Ya Gotta Have) Heart” and “Whatever Lola Wants.” "Hairspray opens July 26. Set in 1962 Baltimore, Tracy Turnblad may not have a Barbiedoll figure, but the size of her heart is matched only by the volume of her hair. Tracy and friends dance rings around the establishment and bring color to the teenage TV dance show “The Corny Collins Show.” Featuring fan favorites like “Good Morning Baltimore,” “I’m a Big Girl Now” and “You Can’t Stop the Beat.” "Sweeney Todd," the thrilling Tony-award-winning musical, opens Aug. 10. This is the macabre, darkly funny story of the legendary wronged and vengeful Demon Barber of Fleet Street who takes up with his enterprising neighbor, a pie maker, in a delicious plot to slice their way through England’s upper crust. The season finishes off with

"A Chorus Line" opening Aug. 23. The show, set as a real-life audition, takes place on a bare stage in an empty theater as dancers try out for the chance to dance in a Broadway show. Magical when it debuted in 1975, it earned the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nine Tony Awards. Season passes, good for one’s choice of four of the five shows in the season are $95, which brings the cost of individual tickets down to $23.75 from $30.New this year, for those who want more flexible theater options, the Flex Pass, good for attendance by anyone at any four shows during the season, is $100, and may be used by two people for two shows each, or even for four people to attend one show. Tickets may be reserved at the Box Office, which is open daily from 11 a.m. to show time, or online at

Ten-year-old New York actress, Raquel Leifer, stars in Mount Washington Valley Theatre Company's production of "Annie," opening on Thursday, June 30, at Eastern Slope Inn Playhouse in North Conway. The first show in the Theatre Company's 41st Season, also features six talented local girls as the orphans: Elena Carmichael, Mia Valeriani, Cosette Brochu, Alison Burson, Emery O'Connell and Kerry Murphy.

M&D Productions’ ‘God Of Carnage’ combats bullying CONWAY — M&D Productions, the Mount Washington Valley's only award-winning community-based theater company is raising the bar once again. They are taking on a variety of topics with their production of the Tonyaward-winning "God of Carnage." "The most prevalent theme throughout the play, is that of bullying," director Heather Hamilton said. "It is a matter that even with all the education and awareness building around this subject, still exists in growing numbers. It is still grabbing headlines on the news."

As the play begins, two 11-year-old children, Ferdinand Reille and Bruno Vallon, get involved in an argument because Bruno refuses to let Ferdinand join his "group." Ferdinand knocks out two of Bruno's teeth with a stick. That night, the parents of both children meet to discuss the matter. Ferdinand's father, Alan (Rob Clark), is a lawyer who is never off his mobile phone. Ferdinand's mother, Annette (Elaine Kondrat) is in "wealth management" and consistently wears good shoes. Bruno's father, Michael (David

Freedman), is a self-made wholesaler with an unwell mother. Bruno's mother, Veronica (Christine Thompson), is writing a book about Darfur. As the evening starts, the meeting between these two couple — while well intended — doesn't seem to go as planned. "This show truly depicts the nature of how parents can react to situations when their loving children are involved," M&D artistic director Ken Martin said. “Yasmina Reza, has deliberately written this play so that it leaves the audience to reflect on

what they would do in the same situation. This is why it was chosen to be part of our 2011 Season.” This show opens July 7, and continues July 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23. All performances will be at 7 p.m. There will also be several “talk backs” scheduled after certain performances. Ticket prices vary and there are discounted tickets available the opening weekend to include "Pay What You Can" so, check them out on Facebook at or call the box office at 662-7591 to reserve a seat.

Copies of ‘Beyond the Notches’ book donated to Conway library and historical society Page 46 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, June 25, 2011


CONWAY — The Conway Public Library and the Conway Historical Society each recently were given copies of a newly-published anthology containing essays about northern New Hampshire’s history. Accepting the copies of “Beyond the Notches: Stories of Place in New Hampshire’s North Country” from project coordinator Kay Morgan were Bob Cottrell of the library’s Henney History Room and Alice Proctor of the Conway Historical Society. The book was published this month by Bondcliff Books of Littleton, in partnership with the Monadnock Institute of Nature, Place and Culture of Franklin Pierce University of Rindge. The book was edited by Mike Dickerman of Littleton and Morgan, the latter of whom was the first project director of the Frost Place in Franconia. It features artwork by Bethlehem artist Amy Delventhal of Bethlehem. Her painting “Lafayette and the Gale,” was selected for the cover and she also created five new works to provide introductions to the five sections of the book. According to the website, www. next page

nockinst/index.html, “Beyond the Notches” features “400 pages of non-fiction writing by authors who have intimate knowledge of this distinctive region, as well as breath-taking photographs, original artwork and historic maps.” ••• The June 11 forum was funded in part by the N.H. Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, and was sponsored by the Monadnock Institute and the library. At the event, Morgan — the project’s coordinator — explained that the volume is organized into five sections — “First Stories,” “Transformation and Change,” “Working the Land,” “Conservation and Recreation,” and “Competing Visions.” Dickerman was not present at the Conway event, but outlined the focus of the book in preview that was distributed at the event. “ ‘Beyond the Notches’ captures the essence of life in New Hampshire’s rugged North Country,” wrote Dickerman. “Its essays, many penned by longtime residents of the region, reflect the natural beauty of the forests and mountains of the Great North Woods and White Mountains — which drew many of us here in the first place — but also the hardships and challenges of living and working in this isolated paradise I happily call home.” Among those contributing essays were Cottrell, longtime North Country newspaper columnist John Harrigan, Jack McEnany of Sugar Hill, Yankee

Magazine contributing editor Edie Clark; Kim Nilsen, humorist Rebecca Rule, Jeff Woodburn of Dalton, Sylvia Smith, hiking columnist and AMC White Mountain Guide co-editor Steve Smith of Lincoln, Fran Lavoie of Littleton, Dartmouth College writing professor Ernest Hebert, and Daily Sun writers Barbara Tetreault of Berlin and Tom Eastman of Conway. Five northern New Hampshire high school students also wrote stories for the book. In addition to Cottrell, writers on hand for the June 11 event were Bob Goodby, Alan Leveillee, Pavel Cenkl, Sarah GoodbyBotting, Crane and Eastman. All were asked to speak about their essays. Topics covered in the 400-page book include: a history of life in the notches, patterns in the landscape: a look at White Mountain art; the history of “Pathways to the Top” on Mount Washington; logging camps of old; the history of how a vacant, non-productive agricultural lot in Glen was transformed into Story Land, and a look at the “Two Conways, North and South.” At the June 11 event, John Harris, director of the Monadnock Institute, noted that the book is scheduled to be available for sale at bookstores and gift shops throughout New Hampshire late in June. Harris said the new volume is the institute’s second, as an earlier work was focused on the Monadnock region. The new book was designed by Stephen Stinehour and fea-

tures artwork by local artists as well as 160 photographs, many of them from Dickerman’s extensive White Mountain history collection. According to its website, the Monadnock Institute of Nature, Place and Culture is a “leader in place studies, an emerging academic discipline that recognizes the importance of natural, built, social and cultural environments in the formation of individual, group and community identity.” “When we understand the place we call home, it connects us to others and the world beyond ourselves. The Monadnock Institute seeks to help individuals and communities develop a sense of place,” notes the website. The project was supported through a grant from Jane’s Trust and the Neil and Louise Tillotson Fund. Upcoming forums and/or book sales are scheduled to be held July 16 in Berlin at the New Hampshire Writers Project Book Fair at Northern Forest Heritage Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; July 29 at the Weeks Act Centennial Celebration at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road; Aug. 13 at Mead Base (visit for more information); Aug. 13 at the Frost Place in Franconia; and Aug. 20 at a forum on literature of the White Mountains in North Conway (visit for further information). The price of the book is $29.95. A softcover book will also soon be available. For further information, visit

Weeks Act Centennial Festival at the base of the auto road July 29 The Weeks Act, passed in 1911, is marking its 100th Anniversary and the White Mountain National Forest along with several partner organizations is hosting a familyfriendly festival on July 29 at the base of the Mount Washington Auto Road. This free, public event is part of a coordinated New Hampshire effort celebrating the Weeks Act Centennial. The Weeks Act made the creation of the National Forests east of the Mississippi River possible. This landmark piece of conservation legislation helped to create 41 National Forests in the Eastern United States, including the White Mountain National Forest. These valuable forests now provide clean water, wildlife habitat, recreation opportunities, forest products, and so much more. To commemorate the anniversary, the Society for Protection of N.H. Forests, Appalachian Mountain Club, N.H. Department of Resources and Economic Development, Plymouth State University, Weeks State Park Association, Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association, members of the Weeks family, and the White Mountain National Forest, have come together to celebrate the Weeks Act Centennial throughout the year. The Main Pavilion of the festival will highlight these partnerships in conservation, recreation, and a White Mountain Marketplace that showcases area services, products, and attractions. The Main Pavilion will also host the stage where entertainment will be ongoing throughout the day. Currently scheduled to perform: musician, Jeff Warner performing Lumber Camp Songs; fid-

dler Patrick Ross; Marek Bennett and his band Big Paws; storyteller and comedian Rebecca Rule and historical interpreter Dick Fortin. The Forest and Family Experience Pavilion will have many hands-on, family-friendly activities, including hikeSafe instruction, Junior Ranger activities, a Mount Washington Weather observatory demonstration, a U.S. Forest Service soil investigation pit, and water, pond and stream discovery. The N.H. Division of Forests and Lands will have a wildfire truck display and there will be a wildland fire obstacle course for children of all ages to enjoy. There are also several walk through educational trucks scheduled to be on display including the “Way of the Woods” a mobile forest heritage museum and “Watershed on Wheels” — a hands on interactive display. There will be forestry demonstrations from past and present, watch craftsmen create their wares from wood, and learn about all that the forests have to offer at the Woodlands Pavilion. Some of the demonstrations scheduled include: Old Tools of the Trade; a cross cut competition with the UNH Woodsmen; trail building and maintenance; What is Intarsia?; Wood and Art, The Art of Basket Making; a wood turner and wood carver/doll maker. You will also be able to learn how to build a bird house from expert woodworkers. Food and refreshments will be available all day long under the Festival Food Pavilion.

Using social media effectively and appropriately BY BRENDA LEAVITT The cat is out of the bag! “Social Media. “Social Networking." “Social Marketing." Call it what you want, but its use has become pervasive and prevalent in today’s world of marketing. But has its use become pointless? Facebook is boasting nearly 700 million users; Twitter publishes about 190 million tweets every day ( That seems like an awfully large amount of “noise” to try and break through or “listen” to and comprehend. I certainly won’t disagree, but what I hope to do is provide some help to make this “noise” sound more like a symphony. I would also like YOU to be able to join the band. So let’s get started! It is vital for businesses to comprehend the overall concept of social media. It was not designed as a place for you to sell your pizzas, or hotel rooms or even gain exposure for your latest listing. If you know the story, it was essentially built to provide a place for friends to connect. It quickly grew up into a place for perhaps “longlost” friends to connect. And now it has simply exploded into a place where everybody “is” and every business WANTS to be! The first concept to grab hold of is that your social media exposure should be focused around becoming a valuable member of the community. A simple concept to use is the chamber of commerce “mixer” or “Business After Hours” meeting. This is a mostly casual event where you can catch up, meet new people and generally just unwind and talk about the day/week that “was." I think you’ll agree that there is nothing more annoying than that person who is always pushing their business or always talking about themselves! The goal here is to connect and build relationships. The goal is also to provide some sort of value to the conversation. Inevitably and naturally, the topic of you and your business will come up. One of the most important distinguishing factors between the chamber of commerce meeting and the social media world is the convenience and efficiency of the latter. You are not limited to just those people who showed up to the physical meeting, nor are you limited to the region or time of day the meeting was set at. You can participate in a social marketing “event” located halfway around the world from your couch, in your jammies and while eating a bowl of ice cream! This opens up your marketing opportunities in ways never before possible! Imagine being able to expose your house to hundreds or even thousands of potential buyers without having to leave the valley? So, once we’re done NOT talking about ourselves, what do we say? You should be talking about topics you know and that excite you. If you are a hiker, biker, scuba diver or fiction fiend, talk about THAT! People want to connect with people, not “companies” or “brands." If you have been in sales for any length of time, you have learned that consumers buy products from PEOPLE, not companies. Sure, you might buy see LEAVITT page 50

Live the simple life Today’s Home of the Week, built in 1865, is a Cape-style farmhouse perched on a landscaped knoll near Madison Village.

MADISON — The essence of New Hampshire country living awaits you in desirable Silver Lake. You can return to a quieter and gentler place where pride in family and home is evident. This lovingly-maintained Capestyle farmhouse near Madison Village is perched on a pleasantly landscaped knoll situated on a 2 1/2 acre corner lot. Arrive by entering the driveway and parking in the attached spacious barn, or park in front of the comfortable three-season porch. The upgraded three-bedroom home has many essential updates including the kitchen. The hub of any home is the kitchen, and this one is no exception. It is carefully designed to use the space effectively with many upgrades including hickory cabinets, maple floors, central island with sink, recessed lighting, dishwasher and many touches one would expect in a country kitchen. The dining room has a large sliding door that lets in plenty of light and looks out onto a large deck and a fenced-in yard area. Step into the living room where you can spend those cold winter nights cozy in front of the woodstove. The adjoining den has ample country charm and character with beautifully-restored wide pine flooring. A diamond shaped window in the hallsee HOME page 50

that new car from GM or Toyota, but you typically made your decision of where to buy it based on the salesPERSON, not the building the car was stored. Real estate is one of the greater benefactors of this social media revolution! Real estate agents are typically social people so they “get” the concepts quite quickly. They understand the concept of listening (two ears, one mouth!) and sharing. When it first gained popularity we’d see a few agents doing nothing more than posting their new listings, but soon enough it “clicked." Most now see the value in simply doing their “thing” and building their network both in person and online. It is important to bring some sort of value to the conversation. That could be your ability to entertain with a joke or a great story. It could also be your knack for motivating people and getting them excited about an activity or topic. I think one of the best ways to bring value is to help or educate. It can be something as simple as the answer to a question or as quick as the sharing of a great article you just read. Getting a recommendation from a trusted friend is always worth more than an advertisement or commercial. (Sites like Yelp and Digg are great examples of this. These sites give us, the consumer, the ability to rate companies and articles that we feel provide some real value. It gives the statement that we don’t need a corporation to tell us what is newsworthy or of high quality, we can determine that for ourselves.) Asking and answering questions is vital to both the conversation and to establishing your place in the community. It shows that you want to provide assistance, but that you are also “human” and need help in some ways too. This is also a great way to become the “expert” in your area. If someone is looking to move to the Mount Washington Valley and one of our local real estate agents is actively engaged in the appropriate online social circles, who do you suppose that buyer is going to call first?! So don’t be shy. Get yourself out there and start the conversation. I think you’ll be surprised to find you will have quite an audience. Brenda Leavitt is with Badger Realty in North Conway.

Refinancing your mortgage now is different from the last time you did it. Two-thirds of mortgages being written these days are refi’s, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association. Assuming your credit scores are strong, deciding whether to jump in as well may be a matter of numbers; there are plenty of Web calculators to test the what-ifs, like the ones at Interest rates are teasing new lows, at 4.49 percent, on average, as of Thursday for a 30-year fixed-rate loan, according to Freddie Mac. If you grabbed a record-low rate late last year, or almost-as-low rates in mid-2009, you may decide to sit this one out. Otherwise, the average outstanding home loan still carries an interest rate of about 6 percent, according to Frank Nothaft, the chief economist at Freddie Mac. “It continues to be an attractive time for people to refinance if they haven’t taken advantage of it already,” he said. Market changes are especially striking for those borrowers with loans taken out before the 2008 financial crisis. “They’re shocked at how much less the house is worth; they’re shocked at how much documentation we have to get; and they’re shocked at how much they have to sign,” said Matt Hackett, the underwriting manager at Equity Now. First, don’t assume you’re going to take cash out. In the first three months of 2011, just a quarter of refi borrowers did so, according to Freddie Mac. On average, 62 percent of refi’s over the last 25 years involved getting cash out. see next page

About half of borrowers now keep their loan balance about the same, and 21 percent cut that balance. Some want to cut debt, but others are putting in cash because the dwindling value of their home means they don’t have 20 percent equity, and the extra cash increases equity, the way a bigger down payment does. Others want to get their loan below $417,000 to take advantage of the lowest rates, according to Philip Merola, an executive vice president of Mountain Mortgage Corporation, a lender in Union, N.J. People still do take cash out for things like college tuition, Merola said. But the equity has to be there — don’t expect a loan for more than 80 percent of the current appraised value. And if you don’t have equity? If your loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration, consider an FHA Streamlined Refinance, which may not require a new appraisal. There’s also the government-backed Home Affordable Refinance Program, designed for loans that have little or negative equity. Also bear in mind that you’ll need more documentation. Expect to document all income, assets and debts. In fact, you can expect the lender to go beyond the application, said Michael Moskowitz, the president of Equity Now. Borrowers sign an Internal Revenue Service Form 4506, which allows a lender to get tax returns. In the past, lenders used returns for quality control after closing, if they looked at them at all, Moskowitz said. But now his company

There’s also the government-backed Home Affordable Refinance Program, designed for loans that have little or negative equity. reviews all tax returns. For instance, he said, a money-losing side business will show up, thus reducing the borrower’s income. Finally, remember that disclosure forms have changed. As of last year, lenders were required to provide a revised Good Faith Estimate form aimed at making terms more transparent. One key update: In the past, some closing-cost estimates were fairy tales. The new form specifies fees that can’t change between estimate and closing, fees with changes capped at 10 percent, and others that can grow more. Hackett warned that some lenders, when they haven’t technically accepted a loan application, fudge on estimates with informal “initial fees worksheets” they provide. Some people think they have a good-faith estimate in such cases, he said. But fees aren’t capped. One thing that hasn’t changed, said Nothaft: “It will still come across as a thick wad of paper with a lot of forms to sign.”

Any good sides to a short sale? BY PETER G. MILLER CTW FEATURES

Question: I have a Las Vegas property that I currently rent. The house is about $160,000 upside down, and I lose about $500 every month. I'd like to get it off my back with a short sale when the lease ends in August. What are the good and bad points of a short sale? Answer: With a short sale you're asking the lender to accept a loss on the loan, but if the value of the property increased the lender would get nothing extra. Little wonder lenders are not thrilled with short sales. According to RealtyTrac, an online marketplace of foreclosure properties, Nevada posted the nation's highest state foreclosure rate for the 50th straight month in February. One in every 119 Nevada housing units had a foreclosure filing during the month. In such circumstances the real question is how to minimize your loss. There are several options to consider. You might consider offering the property to the tenant with a short sale. Because the local market is so distressed this may actually be attrac-

tive to the lender as an alternative to foreclosure and possibly a bigger loss. If the tenant says no, then start working on a short sale now with the understanding that the tenant's lease must be honored. Consider what happens if there's no short sale and the tenant does not renew the lease. You'll face even bigger monthly costs. Would it make any sense for you to occupy the property if the tenant moves out? Is foreclosure or a short sale even a viable option? Speak with a Nevada attorney for specifics. Also speak with a tax professional. Because this is a rental property, unpaid mortgage debt could be considered "imputed" income, income that may be taxable under federal rules. It may be that your best option is to extend the tenant's lease. Yes, this will mean losing $500 a month but that may be a better result than you'd get with a short sale or foreclosure. And besides, perhaps prices will rise. © CTW Features E-mail your real estate questions to

This recession is getting really old. No one could agree more with this sentiment than the young, observes Peter Francese, a demographic analyst who writes for the New Hampshire Association of Realtors. Some 18 million "Generation Y" (aged 18 to 34) folks are living with parents or family, estimates Francese. They are itching to get on with a traditional rite of passage - getting their own place -but have been stymied by high unemployment, Francese explains. Expect to see more young people toting boxes out of their family home, say Brad Hunter, chief economist at MetroStudy a housing data firm. He predicts that the number of people setting up new households will rebound to about 900,000 this year from a severely anemic recession rate of about 400,000. During the early part of the last decade, some young adults skipped or barely passed through the rental stage, moving right on to homebuying, Francese remembers. "But very, very few are doing that today," he adds, because the financial requirement of buying are too strict, and Gen Y now wants the ability to quickly relocate for job opportunities. Rental-related businesses are as eager to brush off the recession doldrums and get moving as all those young adults are. Here, a look at the financial barriers that Gen Y must hurdle, and how landlords are tailoring offerings to entice young adults once they're "rent-ready": Pay Picture Even when they secure a job, landlords like to see a secure paycheck —

and many Gen Y members work temp jobs, says Francese. Besides a steady pay stream, rental companies look for monthly salary that is at least 2.5 times greater than monthly rent, says Debi Wherry, senior vice president of Fogelman Management Group, a Memphis apartment firm. David Vivero, CEO of the online firm RentJuice, offers another way to compute income requirements: "Whatever the monthly rent it, multiply that by 30 for the amount you need in annual salary. If the rent is $1,000, then you'll need to make $30,000 in gross annual income." In pricey New York, however, the formula is closer to 40 times monthly rent for target income, he adds. Before moving in, up-front fees are required. "You usually pay an distractive fee, which is non-refundable, and a small security deposit," says Wherry. Additionally, many companies run credit checks that also incorporate income history and are specifically geared to the rental business, says Wherry, Wide Market Not all landlords and rental companies run intensive checks, notes Alissa Green, editor of the website Moreover, "the majority of roommates with open rooms don't run checks, especially when someone is taking over from another renter," she adds. How do hopeful renters find the right opportunity? Where they spend their time: Facebook, answers Vivero. His firm has introduced a "Lease Locator" application allowing brokers and landlords to have offerings pop see RENTERS page 54

up when people enter a rent search inside Facebook. Communal Living Apartment building activity is up, and the designs are catering to new tastes. "This is the Starbucks generation," says Jerry Davis, a senior vice president at Denver-based developer UDR Inc. "They socialize in large groups and are not looking to entertain in their own [apartment]. As a result, many new complexes offer small units of 700 square feet or so, but lots of common areas, like outdoor kitchens and dining areas, pools, gyms, and media and game rooms. The smaller units are more affordable, and the common spaces should also foster greater ties with neighbors, says Davis. "When renters make friends [in their complex] they tend to stay much longer," he concludes. © CTW Features

Is there light at the end of the foreclosure tunnel? BY MARYANN HAGGERTY NEW YORK TIMES

Mortgage troubles won’t necessarily shut you out of the housing market forever. As the economy and real estate market continue to struggle, millions of Americans have lost their homes through foreclosure, short sale (when a property is sold for less than is owed) or a deed in lieu of foreclo-

sure (when the bank takes ownership without foreclosure). Even if you think you never want to own a home again, clean credit is important. Bad credit can make it more expensive to rent. In some fields, especially financial services, it can make it difficult to find or keep a job. How quickly your credit score improves depends in part on how the problem is

reported, said Sarah Davies, a senior vice president of VantageScore in Stamford, Conn., a credit-scoring company that competes with FICO, the dominant scoring system. In a short sale where the balance is forgiven and no deficiency is recorded in public records, recovery can be quick. “Simply see next page

Oversight group did not refer housing complaints BY GRETCHEN MORGENSON NEW YORK TIMES

The federal agency overseeing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the taxpayer-owned mortgage finance giants, failed to refer to criminal investigators and other authorities almost 100 complaints about possible foreclosure abuse and mortgage fraud at the companies over a recent two-year period, according to a report issued late Tuesday by the inspector general

of the Federal Housing Finance Agency. While the report did not determine whether these and other complaints had merit, it said that the agency’s unresponsiveness to them was problematic. “Failure to recognize and quickly provide law enforcement authorities with information about allegations of fraud and other potential criminal conduct presents a significant risk for the agency,” the report said. The inspector general’s report is the third

to assess the agency that acts as conservator for Fannie and Freddie, which have cost the taxpayer roughly $154 billion since they nearly collapsed in September 2008. The assessment covers the agency’s responses to complaints raised by consumers as well as current and former employees of Fannie and Freddie. It covers a period from July 30, 2008, when the finance agency was created, to Oct. 31, 2010, when the inspector

general began its operations. “Millions of Americans have been touched by the housing crisis,” Steve A. Linick, the inspector general, said in a statement. “Increasingly, they have filed complaints about fraud, waste or abuse, including allegations of improper foreclosures and possible criminal activity. Those complaints deserve timely and responsible action by F.H.F.A.” Meg Burns, senior associate director in the office of Congressional Affairs and Communi-

cations, said that the agency had a limited mandate to deal with consumer issues but that it agreed with the recommendations and would follow them. Linick and his staff found that during the period covered by the report, the agency assigned only two employees to process consumer complaints about Fannie and Freddie. Responding to the complaints was an additional duty for these employees, who also handled external correspondence for the agency, the report said.

paying all your debts on time could bring your score up to a reasonable range in nine months,” Davies said. “Reasonable” may not qualify you for a mortgage, but it will help in other situations. A foreclosure or bankruptcy can weigh you down for years. FICO has found that it takes three years for a borrower to pull a score back up to a fair-tomiddling 680 after a foreclosure, according to Joanne Gaskin, a company director. A borrower who started out with a near-perfect 780 score would take about seven years to climb all the way back. But if someone has gone through foreclosure and still has a mountain of debt and not enough income, bankruptcy is worth considering, said Tracy Becker, the founder of North Shore Advisory, a credit-restoration company based in Tarrytown, N.Y. Sure, it will be another hard blow to your credit rating — but your credit most likely is already “wrecked,” at least for now, she said. Bankruptcy can wipe out some debt. “The choices you make for the future about your financial options should be based on how bad your credit is,” Becker said. With one 30-day-late payment, for instance, “don’t assume your credit is ruined forever,” she said. It’s easier to recover from that than it would be to pull back from a string of late payments. And what about a future mortgage? Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration set guidelines for how long a borrower must

wait after a “significant derogatory event.” There are plenty of asterisks and conditions. But to generalize, the wait is longest after a foreclosure. Extenuating circumstances like a job loss, illness or divorce reduce the wait. With such circumstances, Fannie and Freddie specify a two-year wait after a short sale, deed in lieu, or discharge or dismissal of bankruptcy, and three years after foreclosure. Without extenuating circumstances, waits can extend to four years after bankruptcy and seven years after foreclosure. “The key is to avoid the foreclosure,” said Andrew Wilson, a spokesman for Fannie Mae. “That is what will help you be eligible for the shorter period.” As for F.H.A.-insured loans, they are available three years after a foreclosure, assuming perfect credit afterward, and two years after a bankruptcy is discharged. After a short sale, there’s a three-year wait if the borrower is in default at the time of the sale and there are no extenuating circumstances. If the borrower was on time with all payments for 12 months before the sale, there is no wait specified, meaning that an F.H.A. loan might be available immediately. Among the conditions: A loan isn’t available if the short sale was to “take advantage of declining market conditions,” according to the F.H.A. Home Loan Handbook for lenders. One caveat: All of this assumes you have income to pay off debts and stay afloat. It’s likely to be a long time before the mortgage market returns to an anyone-can-borrow-anything way of thinking.
