Baboon study shows benefits for nice guys

Saturday night Low: 59 Record: 46 (1987) Sunset: 8:24 p.m.

(NY Times) — At last, good news for the beta male. From the wild to Wall Street, as everyone knows, the alpha male runs the show, enjoying power over other males and, as a field biologist might put it, the best access to mating opportunities. The beta is No. 2 in the wolf pack or the baboon troop, not such a bad position. But conversationally, the term has become an almost derisive label for the nice guy, the good boy all grown up, the husband women look for after the fling with Russell Crowe. Laurence R. Gesquiere, a research associate in the department of ecology and evolutionary biology at Princeton, and colleagues report in the journal Science that in five troops of wild baboons in Kenya studied over nine years, alpha males showed very high stress levels, as high as those of the lowestranking males. The stress, they suggested, was probably because of the demands of fighting off challengers and guarding access to fertile females. Beta males, who fought less and had considerably less mate guarding to do, had much lower stress levels. They had fewer mating opportunities than the alphas, but they did get some mating in, more than any lower-ranking males. After all, when the alpha gets in another baboon bar fight, who’s going to take the girl home?

As gulf tourism rebounds, BP seeks to lower payments

Executive who ran Murdoch unit at time of hacking quits

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

GULF SHORES, Ala. (NY Times) — It seems like old times here on the Gulf Coast. The FloraBama Lounge is hopping, there’s a two-hour wait for a table at the Original Oyster House, and the first complaints you hear among the charter boat operators are about the latest fishing limits — not oil slicks. The numbers tell a similar story, with many tourism-related businesses having their best summer in years. BP felt obliged to note this officially. Last Friday, in a court filing that included

a detailed list of indicators of “the strength of the gulf economy,” BP argued that “there is no basis to assume that claimants, with very limited exceptions, will incur a future loss related to the spill.” The response here: Hold on, it’s not that good. Since the spill last year, messages from the coast have been somewhat mixed, with some businesses arguing that it is continuing to hurt the coast and that more assistance is needed, and others, often led by tourism officials, emphasizing the positive to entice visitors and consumers.

U.S. recognizes rebels in Libya




Saturday High: 83 Record: 92 (1998) Sunrise: 5:16 a.m.

What a nice night for an evening.” —Steven Wright

ISTANBUL (NY Times) — The United States formally recognized the rebel leadership in Libya as the country’s legitimate government on Friday. The move, made at an international gathering here to discuss the five-month-old conflict in Libya, ratcheted up the diplomatic pressure on Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi amid a continuing NATO-led bombing campaign to push

him from power. At the meeting, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said that Colonel Qaddafi’s government no longer had any legitimacy, and that the United States would join more than 30 countries in extending diplomatic recognition to the main opposition group, known as the Transitional National Council. “We will help the T.N.C. sustain its commitment to the

sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity of Libya, and we will look to it to remain steadfast in its commitment to human rights and fundamental freedoms,” Mrs. Clinton said. In an audio speech carried on Libyan television, Colonel Qaddafi appeared as determined as ever to fight on, and dismissed the recognition of the rebel government by the leading powers.

LONDON (NY Times) — Les Hinton, the chairman of Dow Jones, announced his resignation on Friday, joining Rebekah Brooks, the embattled chief executive of Rupert Murdoch’s British newspaper operations, in the exodus of top officials from Rupert Murdoch’s media empire. Mr. Hinton, a long-time confidant of Mr. Murdoch, ran News International, the British publishing subsidiary of Mr. Murdoch’s News Corporation, from 1997 to 2005, during the time when the phone hacking that touched off the scandal took place. Mr. Hinton has said repeatedly he was unaware that people working for The News of the World, a Sunday tabloid that Mr. Murdoch recently shut down to help contain the growing crisis, were illegally accessing private voice mail messages. In his resignation letter to Mr. Murdoch, Mr. Hinton acknowledged that he ultimately bore responsibility for the company.

Headwall section of Tuckerman Ravine Trail to be closed for reconstruction PINKHAM NOTCH — The Tuckerman Ravine Trail, one of the most popular hiking trails in the White Mountains, is scheduled for a temporary closure this summer. On July 18, the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) will begin a significant reconstruction project in the steep Headwall section of the trail. Hikers will be able to use the lower portion of the trail, from Pinkham Notch Visitor Center to Hermit Lake Shelter. From Hermit Lake the trail will be closed until the junction of the Alpine Garden Trail. The trail will remain open from the Alpine Garden to the summit of Mount Washington. An AMC professional trail crew will work for four or five weeks restoring

–––– and Spa ––––

the trail to its original location, building rock steps, and fixing problems caused by erosion in persistently wet areas. The combination of extremely high use, steep terrain, and often challenging weather makes this trail reconstruction a high priority. Since challenging weather is a factor, the work must take place during the height of the summer hiking season. There will be numerous signs posted warning visitors of the trail closure. Information about trail options and conditions can be found at White Mountain National Forest Ranger Stations in Gorham Conway, or Campton, or from the AMC Visitor Center in Pinkham Notch.

Saturday, July 9 * Conservationists call the Weeks Act "one of the greatest pieces of federal legislation ever." Passed by Congress in 2011, the week's Act achieved its goal of protecting and restoring the nation's navigable waterways and thereby its forest lands here in the East. It ultimately led to the creation of White Mountain National Forest in 1918. * Ham Arena is expected to reopen for the summer on Monday. The reopening was delayed by two weeks because of a problem with the facility's refrigeration system. Tuesday, July 12 * Voters will have the final say on what budget figure appears on the school ballot Aug. 16 when they gather Tuesday for a special deliberative meeting at Kennett High. * Probable cause hearings for Anthony Papile and Michael Petelis, two of three men arrested in connection with the murder of Krista Dittmeyer, were postponed. No new dates have been set. * A latest New Hampshire/WMUR poll shows that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is the only Republican presidential candidate who could beat President Obama in the 2012 general election. * A National Guard helicopter is used to rescue an injured hiker from the side of Mount Adams. * Memorial Hospital goes into lockdown briefly when an armed Freedom man threatens to hurt himself.


Is the DARE program worth supporting? Conway Police Department has been running a DARE program (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) in local schools for decades, but the program is running out of money and maybe steam. Police chief Ed Wagner told commissioners earlier this week that the DARE account was down to $206, due to a decline in donations and sponsorships. The program costs between $4,000 and $5,000, Wagner said, which "isn't a lot, but we can't afford it anymore." The morning a story appeared in The Conway Daily Sun about the program's financial plight, hundreds of dollars in donations poured in. Still, the situation brings to the surface questions about the importance and effectiveness of the program. A 2003 study "found no significant differences in illicit drug use between students who received DARE in the fifth or sixth grade and students who did not." But Conway police Lt. Chris Perley says the program starts a positive relationship between youngsters and police and carries a positive message.

Wednesday, July 13 * Organizers of Project SUCCEED, the popular beforeand after-school program, secure a $414,000 grant from the N.H. Department of Education to ensure that the program continues at Pine Tree School. The other two elementary schools, Conway and John Fuller, are already in the fourth year of five-year grants. * Arts Jubilee kicks off its 29th season of summer outdoor concerts on Thursday evening at Cranmore. * Former Kennett High standout Jeff Locke, of Redstone, is scheduled to pitch in the Class AA Eastern League All Star Game Thursday in Manchester.

Susan Bruce throws spaghetti on the wall To the editor: Once again, liberal tactician, Susan Bruce, throws spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks. Well, her contrived analysis of the debt ceiling being raised by Bush versus Obama is spaghetti that won’t stick. Bush raising the debt ceiling seven times is correct. I am not defending Bush for a $5 trillion increase in our national debt during his eight-year administration. But if we’re competing for

increasing debt, Obama is already the winner. Asking for $2.5 trillion increase on top of his $3.6 trillion already spent in his first two years in office at a rate that surpasses Bush by a long shot with another one and half years to go (but who’s counting). The consequences should make us all shutter. Would you like a meatball with that spaghetti? Paul Schuepp Jackson

North Conway Library book sale a success To the editor: I would like to express my thanks to all the members of this wonderful community who helped make the North Conway Library’s Annual Book and Yard Sale a huge success this year. The new set-up made it easier to peruse the thousands of books we offered and view all the yard sale items including some of the library’s old card catalogs that were looking for new homes. Throughout the past year, we received thousands of cherished books. The ones that didn’t make it onto our library shelves were put into the book sale. And during the week before the sale, we received some great yard sale items. Many thanks to our patrons and the community as a whole for all these generous donations! Many thanks to everybody who came to buy. The money raised will be used for our newly remodeled and improved circulation desk since the old one was falling apart and has become too small for our increasingly busy library. We also want to add another eReader, a

second generation Barnes and Noble Nook to our existing collection of one Kindle and one first generation Nook, for our patrons to try out. And a thank-you goes to all the trustees, staff, patrons and friends of the library, and their respective spouses, who all helped with set-up and break-down of the book and yard sale. This is hard work- we appreciate your muscles! I would also like to thank the White Mountain Milers and the North Conway Community Center for their continued support. After the sale, we were very happy to give away some of our leftover books from the sale. Even though they were free, as a thank-you to the community for a successful sale, we still received generous money donations for those “freebies”! Again, many thanks to the whole community for your donations, your help, and your support! Andrea Masters, library director North Conway Public Library

Jeff Locke: A star in every sense at the All Star Game Page 14 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011


MANCHESTER — It was just one inning but it was worth the wait for Granite Staters who finally saw native son Jeff Locke pitch professionally in New Hampshire. Locke was the star among 47 others at the Eastern League AA All Star Game at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium in Manchester Wednesday. Before a soldout crowd of 7,152, the lone player with New Hampshire ties received the loudest and longest ovations of the night. The son of Pam and Alan Locke, of Redstone, pitched a scoreless fourth inning for the Western All Stars, who went on to defeat the Eastern All Stars 8-3 (see related story). "It was a great night," Locke said Thursday by phone on the Altoona Curve's (Pittsburgh Pirates farm team) team bus ride to Erie, Pa. where they resumed the second half of the season with an eight-game road trip. "It was nice to be able to finally pitch in Manchester and come out on the winning team this time. It was fun, everything about it. It was good to be back in my state, and to have that state support meant a lot." Locke, ranked fifth in the Eastern league in strike outs, drew a hero's welcome when the rosters were introduced. "Representing the Altoona Curve, from North Conway, New Hampshire, pitcher Jeff Locke!" the public address announcer said. A number of Locke's family and friends wore T-shirts with Locke's picture on the front with Live Free or Die inscribed below. For the first two innings, Locke was a mere spectator in the game. In the top of the third, though, he headed to the mound in the bullpen and started his warm-ups. At exactly 8 p.m., he entered the game in the bottom of the fourth inning with the West in front 2-0. Locke squared off against a true All Star lineup, arriving to face the heart of the Eastern lineup that would be the envy of any fantasy baseball team owner. Joshua Satin, second baseman for the Binghamton Mets (New York Mets franchise), who leads the Eastern League with 32 doubles while hitting .326, was the first hitter Locke faced. The first pitch was 87 miles per hour ball on the inside. The second pitch was a 92 mph fastball Satin took for a strike. Satin worked a full count before drawing a walk on a 94 mph heater. Locke registered 94 mph four times on the stadium's radar gun "I thought I got a little squeezed on Satin," Locke said. Portland Sea Dogs (Boston Red Sox affiliate) outfield prospect Chis Hsien Chiang (hitting .323 with 14 home runs and a league-leading 62 RBI) fol-

lowed. He lined out on a 1-0 count to left-field. Will Middlebrooks, third baseman for the Sea Dogs (hitting .315 with 9 homers and 43 RBI) who played in the prestigious Futures All Star Game in Arizona on Sunday, followed. He laced a 1-1 offering off the top of the rightcenter-field fence. "That ball got out in a hurry," Locke

said, laughing. "I made a bad pitch and he crushed it." Right-fielder Roger Kieschnick, of the Richmond Flying Squirrels (San Francisco Giants parent club), fielded the ball and gunned it to shortstop Juan Diaz, of the Akron Aeros (Cleveland Indians), who in turn threw a perfect strike to catcher Caleb Joseph, of the Bowie Baysox (Baltimore Ori-

oles), who easily tagged out Satin at the plate to protect the 2-0 lead. With two outs, Travis d'Arnaud, catcher for the Fisher Cats (Toronto Blue Jays) and a member of Team USA in the Future's All Star Game Sunday (hitting .315 with 12 homers), grounded to third on a 1-0 pitch, but the ball was bobbled allowing him to reach. see LOCKE page 16

With two out and two on, up to the plate stepped Mike McDade, Fisher Cats (Toronto) first baseman (hitting .310 with 31 doubles, 14 home runs and 62 RBI — tied for the league lead), who just two hours earlier won the All Star home run hitting contest. He'd been Locke's pick to win the home run derby. Locke's first pitch was a beauty — an off-speed 80 mph breaking ball that had the switch-hitting McDade way out in front with an early swing. The count went to 3-2 before Locke, on a 91 mph pitch, induced a grounder back toward the mound. The Redstone Rocket fielded the ball, threw gently to first to end the inning. His mound work was done for the night. "I was a spectator from that point on," Locke said. "It was like a major-league environment; the atmosphere was great. It was everything I expected and more. I met a lot of great players and made a lot of new friends. This was one for my memories. I'll never forget that night.” In his inning or work, Locke threw 20 pitches, 10 for strikes, allowing one hit and walking one. He was on the mound for about 15 minutes from warm-ups to the final out, leaving the field to another round of applause. Locke was scheduled to pitch in Manchester against the Fisher Cats three weeks ago but his start was rained out. Prior to that, the last time he set foot foot in the Stadium was five years ago when he was a senior for Kennett High School playing in the state championship game. He served as the team's designated hitter in a 5-3 loss. "Of course I remember that game," Locke said, smiling. "There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think about it; it haunts me." He was in the same dugout as five years ago Wednesday night. "This is where I spent most of that game," Locke said as he sat on the bench to chat with reporters following batting practice for the Western League. "I've never pitched here in my life, until tonight. I'm excited." Locke was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the second round of the 2006 First-Year Player Draft out of Kennett High where he was and remains the lone two-time New Hampshire Player of the Year. He was traded to the Pirates' organization in 2009. Last year, he was named to the Florida State League Mid Season All Star as a member of the Bradenton Pirates. In 2007, Locke was picked to the see next page

Appalachian League All Stars when he pitched for Danville Braves; and in 2006, he was selected as an All Star for the Gulf Coast League Braves. The No. 8 prospect in the Pirates' organization and the No. 1 left-handed pitching prospect, Locke leads the Curve in most pitching categories this season. He's 5-8 with an earned run average of 4.67 and has made 17 starts, working 94 1/3 innings while allowing 99 hits, 59 runs (only 49 earned) while striking out 92 and walking an uncharacteristically high 38 batters and yielding five home runs. Locke arrived in the Granite State Tuesday afternoon, flying from Pittsburgh to Boston. He attended an All Star gala that evening which was followed by an even busier Wednesday. He started his day with breakfast at the famed Red Arrow diner in Manchester. "What didn't I eat," Locke said, laughing. "I stuffed myself, it was good." Players arrived at the ballpark mid morning and began preparing for the annual summer classic. Teams took batting practice from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Leaving the field, youngsters asked "Mr. Locke" if he would sign their cards. He smiled and went to the corner of the dugout where they were. The crowd immediately swelled. Among those who came over to see Locke were his good friend and former Kennett High pitching coach Joe Fernald, now the dean of students at Brewster Academy. Fernald is proud of Locke. "I never

had a doubt he'd make it," he said. "I always knew from the beginning he was going to be special." Minutes later, Locke's, proud father, Alan, decked out in a Pittsburgh Pirates hat and wearing a Pirates shirt, came down the steps to the dugout and exchanged a big bear hug with his son. Alan later recalled the early years of his son's baseball career when he routinely made three or four trips a week to Nashua so Jeff and former teammate Rob Knox could pursue their baseball dreams for youth All Star teams. "Jeff and Robby used to fall asleep on the way home," he said, laughing. "It was all worth it, a lot of sacrifices. I'd do it all again in a heartbeat." Locke then granted a couple of journalists requests for quick interviews. He was asked how Manchester compared to Conway. "There's no comparison," he said. "It would be like comparing Florida to Vermont. Manchester is not where I'm from, it's not my town." Batting practice was followed by a 90-minute autograph session where Locke was clearly a fan favorite. "I saw a lot of familiar faces, it was great," he said. "(Laughing) My hand was a little tired at the end." The athletes then watched some of their teammates participate in the home run derby and grabbed a quick bite to eat before coming out to the field for pre-game festivities. Locke again willing obliged fans request for autographs and pictures with him. see LOCKE page 19

"He gets it," Vin Sylvia, sports and Sunday editor for the Union Leader, said from the press box as he commented on the importance of athletes respecting the game and the fans. He said Locke is a lot like fellow New Hampshire professional Sam Flud, from Durham, who is enjoying a breakout season in the Tampa Bay Rays outfield. Flud, a regular on ESPN's Web Gems for his sensational diving catches, has remained accommodating to his home state's media requests. Another member of press row referred to Locke as "a scholarly Greg Maddux" and commented on how he enjoys chatting with the personable "Lockeness Monster." There were a few tense moments in the press box, however, primarily when it was pouring rain at 6:30 p.m., 30 minutes before game time as a tarp covered the infield and quickly began to puddle. "We've got some more heavy stuff coming," one member of press row said. "It's not good for the Locke contingent." "Maybe Jeff Locke just wasn't meant to pitch here," another media member replied. By 7:12 p.m., the rain was gone and a picturesque rainbow appeared over right-field. The weather had shifted and the Redstone Rocket was again cleared for takeoff. "It was fun," Pam Locke said. "We didn't get home until 1:30 a.m.; it took forever for us to get to say goodbye to Jeff. We had a ball all night. Jeff was happy to see so many people from home. He did OK pitching; I'm glad he didn't give up any runs." The Lockes met Bob Lozinak, owner of the Altoona Curve, after game. "Alan asked him if he had a son playing in the game," Pam said, laughing. "He said, 'No, I own the Curve.' He was a very nice man and spoke highly of Jeff." Everyone did and he surely picked up even more fans. During a break in his trip Thursday in Buffalo, Locke sent out his lone Twitter message of the day. "Thank you New Hampshire for all the support over this last few days! It does not go unappreciated."

rounds of six swings again with the top two moving onto the finals McDade and Sierra made their home park look like a bandbox, crushing several pitches that still may not yet have landed to reach the finals. Sierra hit four balls off the hotel in deep left center field and even cleared the Sam Adams Bar and Grill in left field twice. McDade, Locke's pick to win the derby because as a lefty he could take advantage of the short porch in right-field, landed a couple of his bombs on the railroad track another 100 plus feet outside of the park. The finals were supposed to be two rounds of five swings with the best combined total winning. The two Fisher Cats were tied, both hitting three homers on their 10 swings, forcing overtime. In overtime, it became the best of three swings. Little did anyone foresee that it would take four overtimes before a winner was crowned. McDade hit two out in the fourth extra stanza while Sierra hit just one — it was another moon shot off the hotel. Earlier in the afternoon, NASCAR's Kevin Harvick took some swings in a home run contest against local media and was a huge fan favorite posing for pictures and signing just about anything fans wanted.

their fair share of autographs, too, spending over 90 minutes seated at tables signing for fans. The line for this extended from the first floor to the third floor and actually had to be cut off in order to get the game in. The press box was rocking for the All Star Game. There were 30 working reporters assigned spots along press row as well as a ton of television, radio and photographers given field credentials. The Fisher Cats put on quite a food spread for the media: roast turkey, roasted potatoes, twice based cheese stuffed potatoes; corn on the cob, beets, rolls and every Coke product imaginable. Very tasty. There were 63 major league scouts in attendance. "This is the All Star Game that means something," Matt Leite, media relations manager for the Fisher Cats, said. "These guys all have something to play for." Former Toronto Blue Jay slugger George "Taco" Bell threw out the ceremonial first pitch and then New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch delivered a strike of his own from the mound. The game started at 7:12 p.m. just as a picture-perfect rainbow appeared over right-field. Fans were treated to a lot of great pitching. Casey Crosby, of the Seawolves, brought out the first oohs and ahhs when he hit 98 miles per hour on the radar gun. Those sounds quickly turned to ouches when Crosby's next pitch, a 96 mph heater, landed squarely in the see next page

The first runs of the game came in the top of the second inning when Brock Holt (Altoona Curve, Pittsburgh Pirates) lined a two-run homer over the rightfield fence. The blast equaled his season total to that point and drew a wide smile as he rounded the bases. He was named the game's Most Valuable Player. Trenton Thunder (New York Yankees) pitcher Manny Banuelos gave Yankees ands Sox fans a preview of things to come in near future when he struck out the side on just 11 pitches in the top of the third inning.

Where (though perhaps only temporarily), there are mountains, rivers flow from and honored connectivity between the them. On a daily basis, this can be landscape and humans. The impacts taken for granted in the same way we of the Weeks Act are living in the prestake gravity for granted. ent moment today.

A few days before I went to the talk on the Weeks Act at the observatory, I did a hard bushwhack up the “Ramparts” in Carter Notch. I planned to write about that. After the talk, and more aware of an actual connection between mountains and rivers in the modern world of politics, economics and conservation, I decided to also do a kayak down a quiet section of the Saco River in Maine, and to then write briefly about both experiences. To honor both mountains and rivers. And to hope that in the future, more such important legislation can be passed to combat the likes of global warming, over-population and pollution. Recently, I have been visiting AMC Huts and writing about them. The last one I visited was Carter Notch Hut. Just after leaving the hut and before continuing down my loop hike, I did a short foray up into a great ravine on the west slope of Carter Dome called the Ramparts. For a steep ravine, the Ramparts is unusual. First, it is on the west slope of the mountains, whereas, most steep ravines are on the east side, plucked out by both the primary glacier, and then valley glaciers. Second, the floor of the ravine is littered with giant boulders. According to a naturalist blog by an Old Hutman (ex-AMC employee) named Alex McPhail, these giant boulders peeled off of the upper slopes of Carter Dome 10,000 years ago or more, in a process called “mass wasting.” Just down-trail from Carter Hut, I took the short trail from the Wildcat River Trail out to the Ramparts, and

scrambled up a short way. I really wanted to continue up, but couldn’t that day. Bushwhacking up the Ramparts was a serious undertaking, that required a trip in itself. I knew that, because I had done it, quite a few years ago. I had followed a route up the ravine used by the well known mountain writer Guy Waterman, scrambling up the center of the ravine and veering up to the right to a ridge. At that point, Guy had climbed a 20 foot vertical “stack” of granite, and stood on top of it. I did as well, I think. Then I climbed to the top of the Ramparts, had lunch on a spectacular ledge overlooking the ravine and Carter Notch, and bushwhacked north across the slope out to the Carter-Moriah Trail, and descended to the hut. Last Saturday, four days after my loop hike to Carter Notch Hut, I couldn’t resist the lure of the Ramparts and went back and bushwhacked up it again. I had agreed with my spotter, the artist Bob Gordon of Conway, that for safety sake, after climbing up the Wildcat River Trail to Carter Hut, I would sign in the hut logbook, and then sign in again on my return after the bushwhack. That morning, I had checked the weather. A cool front was moving in quickly. It looked good, though some dark clouds would linger over the mountains all day. Used to the balmy weather of summer, I didn’t bother to check the wind speed on top of Mount Washington. see next page

Later, I left the hut and started up the Ramparts. A dark cloud hung over Carter Dome, and a cold wind flowing through Carter Notch hit me as soon as I climbed up on the bare boulders. For the first half of the bushwhack, it was actually more dangerous to stand up on top of a boulder, where the wind could easily knock me out of balance, than it was to scratch inch by inch through the ancient Khrummholtz or stunted spruce, which filled the space between them. With the combination of boulders and stunted trees, often I was balanced on a scratchy branch with the yawn of a deep cave beneath me. On my last hike up the Ramparts, I had spied a big moose skeleton at the bottom of such a cave. Obviously the moose had climbed up to the Ramparts when there was considerable snow cover, and fallen through. I climbed down and took one of its jaw bones. That added a certain primeval quality to the rest of the hike. I left the jaw bone at Carter Hut on the way down. On Saturday I passed three separate house-sized boulders that stood as landmarks of progress on the floor of the ravine. The wind died considerably when I started up to the ridge on the right side through a section of much shorter knee-high Khrummholtz. But when I reached the vertical stack up on the ridge, it had picked up again, and I didn’t dare climb onto the flat platform on top of the stack. Soon after that, I entered the uniform forest on the upper slopes of Carter Dome and the bushwhacking became much easier. I had lunch on a tiny perch overlooking the Ramparts and Carter Notch, then continued an easy bushwhack west out to the Carter-Moriah Trail. Descending to the hut, I passed three Appalachian trail hikers, some Canadian backpackers, and some day hikers. I felt satisfaction that I had actually bushwhacked the Ramparts one more time. I will probably never do it again, I thought. The next Wednesday, I headed out to do a solo kayak on a quiet section of the Saco River in Maine, a section

But in July they wouldn’t have big standing waves and consequently the danger of getting stuck in a “hole,” like they would in the spring. I remember years ago when valley local Earl Stetson canoed the Saco from the source to the sea. He said that big sections in Maine were beautiful and very quiet. I assumed that the whitewater kept a lot of the recreational canoeists away. That has not changed. I saw no one from start to finish on an approximately 10 mile kayak. The whitewater was great, and well within my amateur status. The bends between long flat sections always held a bit of mystery as to what was ahead. An eagle flew up and stayed far in front of me, yet visible — flying high and looking for fish. Families of Canadian geese waddled on the muddy bank or paddled across the river. At one point, a kingfisher — one of many — was so upset at my presence, that it kept flying ahead from overhanging branch to branch, and never let up its metallic distress call for what felt like at least fifteen minutes. I took to paddling along the shore under the canopy to stay in the shade. A long section of striated clay on a steep bank, was a fascinating window into the past. Often I passed a concentrated array of freshwater clam shells on shore, where river otters had celebrated a feast. Rounding a shallow bend, I canoed over a big snapping turtle, located about a foot underwater. I paused to look at it. It was old, its eyes clouded with cataracts. I wondered where, in its many years of existence, it took shelter in highwater, and, in fact, where it managed to dig under the mud in the river to spend its dormant winter. At least, upstream was found the lush forests of the White Mountains, which released the runoff at a manageable level, allowing such creatures of the river a safer existence. I took out my kayak, and headed back to the mountains.

Once on the river it was like renewing an old friendship. It didn’t take us long to find fish; right in the same locations they had been years ago. We drove up and down the river and fished several different spots all of which produced trout. On the way home we reminisced about bygone trips with our kids and some of the more memorable ones that we took together. The one trip that both of us remembered the most was the one in late October, near the end of the season, when it snowed. I remember fondly the walk out with about six inches of wet snow sticking to the bottom of the felt soles on our wading boots. See you on the river.

Country Ecology: Loons and lead fishing tackle Loon Preservation Committee biologists collected the first lead-poisoned loon of 2011 on June 2 from Lake Winnipesaukee. Unfortunately, if recent trends are any indication, it will not be the last loon to die this summer as a result of ingesting lead fishing tackle. In fact, Loon Preservation Committee biologists report that 12 loons died in the summer of 2010 from lead tackle, the highest number of lead deaths ever recorded in New Hampshire, as I reported last year. Loons ingest lead by catching fish that trail a broken length of line, or by striking at tackle as it is trolled or retrieved through the water. They may also ingest sinkers from the lake bottom, mistaking them for stones that they regularly swallow, possibly to aid digestion. Over 60 percent of loons with lead tackle also have a hook, swivel, or fishing line in their gizzards, suggesting that they obtained the lead from current fishing activity instead of picking it off the lake bottom. Loons are present on New Hampshire lakes from late April to November, but the majority of lead deaths (55 percent) occur in just two months, the peak tourism and fishing months of July and August. Loons die approximately two weeks after ingesting a lead object. “Together these results suggest that many, and perhaps most, lead deaths result from current fishing use,” said Harry Vogel, Loon Preservation Committee executive director. “This level of mortality is unsustainable for the New Hampshire loon population.” see next page

Reel Reviews –––––

“Horrible Bossesâ€? is a black comedy about put-upon employees who decide to kill their bosses that doesn't follow through enough on its convictions. The film lacks bite and a willingness to go to truly dark places, but thanks to a very solid cast the film is still funny in its own goofy, vulgar sort of way. Jason Bateman's Nick works grueling hours in an office run by an egomaniacal psycho played by Kevin Spacey, who gives the promotion Nick was waiting for to himself. Charlie Day's Dale is an anxiety-filled neurotic working as a dental assistant to Jennifer Aniston who sexual harasses him. Jason Sudeikis' Kurt works for a coke fiend played by Colin Farrell with a comb-over from hell. The trio decide to off their bosses and enlist the help of a “murder consultantâ€? played by Jamie Foxx, whose character has a name that can't be printed and a very funny story about how he got that name that definitely can't be printed here. Foxx suggests they kill each other's bosses similar to Alfred Hitchcock's “Strangers on a Trainâ€? or Danny DeVito's riff on that film “Throw Momma from a Train.â€? Now, forgive me as I get academic for a second. Black comedy seems like a term that should be easy enough to define and yet I found myself struggling to do so. A search on Wikipedia yielded this: “Black humor is a term coined by surrealist theoretician André Breton

Alec Kerr

in 1935, to designate a sub-genre of comedy and satire in which laughter arises from cynicism and skepticism, often about the topic of death.� That seemed about as good as any definition, but if it is a sub-genre of satire, how is it different from it? One Merriam-Webster definition of satire is: “wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly.� Black comedy does the same thing, but puts a mirror up to the most vile, deplorable aspects of humanity. In essence it is a darker form of satire. Another key of black humor is taking something to its logical extreme to the point of which it becomes illogical. For example in “A Modest Proposal,� Jonathan Swift suggested that impoverished Irish sell their children to the rich as food and actually included possible recipes. With this understanding, “Horrible Bosses� disappoints at being a black comedy. It is more of a vulgar, screwball farce with dark undertones and on that level it works, but those who hoped the film would go to weirder and nastier places will be let down. This is a case where an original script by Michael Markowitz was re-written by “script doctors� and you can sense the material was softened and made easier to

digest. It isn't that the material is bad, in fact it is often very funny, but in spite of some racy content, it feels too safe given the premise. The cast goes a long way to making this movie entertaining and even elevating the material from average to above average. Bateman, a master of dead pan delivery, Day and Sudeikis have a great dynamic together. Day and Sudeikis worked together previously on last year's under appreciated romantic comedy “Going the Distance� and they are developing a strong screen chemistry. They make a good team and it would be interesting to see them paired more. The film's best scene involves Bateman and Day accidentally spilling a large supply of cocaine and frenetically trying to clean it up while falling under the influence of the drug in the process. It is howlingly funny. Spacey previously played this kind of character in the far darker “Swimming with Sharks,� but it is a welcome reprisal as he is the king of menacing, snarky put-downs. Farrell gets big laughs as an obnoxious moron. He's barely recognizable and it is a performance that needs to be seen. Aniston gets to show off a vulgar side and it suits her well. Movies are all about expectations. Walk in expecting a goofy, coarse comedy with a bit of meanness and there are many laughs to be found with “Horrible Bosses.�

M&D presents music, movie in pair of upcoming event CONWAY — M&D Productions has created yet another opportunity for those looking for quality entertainment in the Mount Washington Valley. In addition to award-winning plays, now patrons can also take in the ambiance of two other monthly events in their newly expanded Culture Cafe at Your Theatre in North Conway. M&D has decided to optimize the newly expanded space to include dinner and a movie night to be sponsored by a local restaurant along with a classic film. Then there is also "An Evening With…" where local musicians can perform in a cozy quaint coffee shop with stage. On Sunday July 17th, Dennis O'Neil and Davey Armstrong, known as the popular and multi-talented duo Four Feet Two Shoes, will bring an exciting mix of traditional Irish and Celtic songs and music to M&D Productions stage. “A perfect setting for this group,” said Chrissy Howe, events coordinator. “Listen to them onstage (instead of a crowded bar) while you relax in your seat

LOON from page 25

The Loon Preservation Committee (www. monitors loons throughout the state as part of its mission to restore and maintain a healthy population of loons in New Hampshire; to monitor the health and productivity of loon populations as sentinels of environmental quality; and to promote a greater understanding of loons and the natural world. I enjoy meeting the LPC interns of each summer, as they reveal their campus life in environmental studies from their particular schools. They are intense, intelligent youngsters who cover many of our lakes and ponds during the reproductive season, monitoring all the beautiful loons we presently have. A lot of sunscreen and bug repellent does the trick for accomplishing these duties. You might call 476-5666 to see who is covering your lake this summer. They’re good kids. Dave Eastman also broadcasts “Country Ecology” four times weekly over WMWV 93.5 fm. As vice president of the Lakes Region Chapter/ASNH, he welcomes you to monthly programs at the Loon Center in Moultonborough. Contact him at:

or have a drink in the culture cafe and listen while you catch up with friends.” There is a $10 cover charge to help cover the appetizers. Seating is limited and reservations can be made by calling 662-7591 to guarantee you a seat. A portion of the proceeds goes to help M&D Productions provide quality community theater. Then on Tuesday, July 19, at 6:30p.m., dinner and a movie will be the classic noir film, "Mildred Pierce," a classic post war murder mystery film noir with elements of the melodrama told in flashbacks, and the dinner portion will be sponsored by Almost There. Tickets for this are $10 and also includes the great dinner. “It is a very relaxed atmosphere in which everyone is family, said Mark DeLancey. "It is a wonderful place to go right after Chamber after hours.” For more information or to make reservations call the M&D Productions box office at 662-7591 or check out Facebook at yourtheatre.

TAMWORTH — St. Andrew’sin-the-Valley Episcopal Church welcomes one and all to its fourth annual Surf or Turf Dinner, 6 p.m. on Friday, July 22.

Enjoy the perfect summer evening of delicious food and festive fellowship while joining in St. Andrew’s support of programs that benefit the local community. The ticket price for the feast is $25 and includes your choice of lobster or steak, along with steamed

Half of the proceeds of this fund-raising dinner will be donated to non-profits that serve the local community and world needs, including organizations such as Ossipee Children’s Fund, Bearcamp Valley School and Children’s Center, Child Advocacy Center of Carroll County, Meals on Wheels, and the Tamworth Community Nurse Association.

“You Are Welcome!”


by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your self-worth is not determined by the acceptance of those around you, although it is only human to be influenced by such external cues. So take a moment to appreciate yourself before you meet the public. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have more gumption than you did yesterday, but don’t let that influence you when it’s time to make a promise. It’s better to under-state what you can do and over-deliver than to do the opposite. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Social ups and downs are inevitable, and today such fluctuations are not to be taken too personally. Note that busy and/or hungry people have the shortest tempers. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are a master at reading people now. You’ll detect the nuances of other people’s attitudes, and you’ll note what you observe. This information will be useful later. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No matter how close a relationship is, you are still two people, and you need a degree of separateness and the freedom to explore autonomously. Liberate yourself, if only for a few hours. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 15). You will detach from unhealthy preoccupations and center your life on what truly makes you happy. You’ll work out stress through physical fitness and sports, and you’ll love your new shape. Exciting business happens in September. A relationship becomes a main event in October. November brings a windfall. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 49 and 38.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will confront many obstacles to your success. That you are willing to do so head-on is your main strength. Many would have backed down long ago, but you’re a fighter. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). An unexpected snafu takes up more time than you had planned. There is a litany of dissatisfactions and frustrations that you could blame this on, and yet you rise above it, keeping harmony in your world. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You could chase many dreams at once, but your lack of detectable progress would probably frustrate you. That’s why it’s better to pick one thing to do with this day and celebrate when the job is finished. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are not as reactive to the goings on around you as others seem to be. You learn what you need to know, and you see the process as the means to an end. This mindset will take you straight to the goal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Avoiding obligations is actually a good tactic now, since it’s likely that you feel more obligated than is appropriate. You may find it easy to serve others, but it’s not your only role in life. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When the others around you are nervous, you feel it, too. You want to do something to alleviate the feeling, but the best thing you could do is experience it for all it has to teach you and then let it pass. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The quest for perfection is self-defeating. Strive to be more in touch with your human frailty and fallibility instead. This connects you with the compassion inside you and brings about your comfort and

Yesterday’s Answer

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011— Page 35

Today is Saturday, July 16, the 197th day of 2011. There are 168 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 16, 1911, actress-dancer Ginger Rogers was born Virginia Katherine McMath in Independence, Mo. On this date: In 1790, a site along the Potomac River was designated the permanent seat of the United States government; the area became Washington, D.C. In 1862, David G. Farragut became the first rear admiral in the United States Navy. In 1935, the first parking meters were installed in Oklahoma City. In 1945, the United States exploded its first experimental atomic bomb in the desert of Alamogordo, N.M. In 1951, the novel “The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger was first published by Little, Brown and Co. In 1964, as he accepted the Republican presidential nomination in San Francisco, Barry M. Goldwater said “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” and that “moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” In 1969, Apollo 11 blasted off from Cape Kennedy on the first manned mission to the surface of the moon. In 1973, during the Senate Watergate hearings, former White House aide Alexander P. Butterfield publicly revealed the existence of President Richard Nixon’s secret taping system. In 1981, singer Harry Chapin was killed when his car was struck by a tractor-trailer on New York’s Long Island Expressway. In 1999, John F. Kennedy Jr., his wife, Carolyn, and her sister, Lauren Bessette, died when their single-engine plane, piloted by Kennedy, plunged into the Atlantic Ocean near Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. One year ago: Retired intelligence analyst Kendall Myers, the 73-year-old great grandson of Alexander Graham Bell, was sentenced to life in prison without parole for quietly spying for Cuba for nearly a third of a century from inside the State Department; his wife, Gwendolyn, was sentenced to 5 1/2 years. Today’s Birthdays: Former Attorney General Dick Thornburgh is 79. Soul singer Denise LaSalle is 77. Soul singer William Bell is 72. International Tennis Hall of Famer Margaret Court is 69. Violinist Pinchas Zukerman is 63. Actor-singer Ruben Blades is 63. Rock composer-musician Stewart Copeland is 59. Playwright Tony Kushner is 55. Dancer Michael Flatley is 53. Actress Phoebe Cates is 48. Actor Daryl “Chill” Mitchell is 46. Actorcomedian Will Ferrell is 44. Actor Jonathan Adams is 44. Actress Rain Pryor is 42. Actor Corey Feldman is 40. Rock musician Ed Kowalczyk (Live) is 40. Rock singer Ryan McCombs is 37. Actor Mark Indelicato (“Ugly Betty”) is 17.

Page 38 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011

by Abigail Van Buren


DEAR ABBY: My 12-year-old niece “Tammy” is very shy. When I recently visited my brother’s home, she hid in her parents’ bedroom behind a closed door. She wouldn’t come out to say hi or even speak to me through the door. Today I was on the phone with my sister-in-law and I asked if I could say hello to Tammy. I was told Tammy had left the room because she didn’t want to talk. My sister-in-law then remarked that she has the shiest kids on Earth. I think Tammy’s parents should MAKE her speak to me (or anyone else) in person or on the phone. Am I wrong? -OUTGOING AUNT IN TEXAS DEAR OUTGOING AUNT: Tammy’s behavior is rude, and her mother is covering for her. If Tammy has such overwhelming social anxiety that she cannot exchange even the briefest social amenities, she needs the help of a therapist to help her overcome it. DEAR ABBY: I have worked in a medical office for a number of years. We all get along like a family and there are rarely any problems. However, something has been bothering me since one of my co-workers’ (unmarried) daughter had a baby. We all bought gifts for the baby and tolerate the many pictures and recitation of day-to-day events of the baby, but now the first birthday is here. I received an invitation and was told what they would like to receive, plus a wallet photo of the child and a larger photo with a magnet on it. Many of us have grandchildren, but we have never gone overboard this way. I would never impose an invitation on my co-workers to attend any of my grandchildren’s birthday

parties. My feeling is that grandchildren parties are for families! What to do? -- FRETTING IN OHIO DEAR FRETTING: Fret no more. Politely decline the invitation and say you have other plans. (You do -- you plan not to attend or be milked for a gift.) Stand firm now, because if you don’t, you will be invited to every birthday party the kid has until he or she is an adult. DEAR ABBY: We are progressive parents, but conservative about social issues. We have a problem on which we disagree and we have agreed to abide by your answer. Our three children are all in high school. Our older daughter has a good friend -- a boy who is gay. We like him very much and he has visited our home many times. However, our daughter would like to invite him to a sleepover, as she does with her girlfriends. Is it appropriate for a teenage girl to have a gay boyfriend on a sleepover? -- PUZZLED PARENTS IN THE NORTHWEST DEAR PUZZLED PARENTS: I see no reason why an “out” gay teenage boy shouldn’t attend your daughter’s sleepover. Their relationship is the same as the ones she has with her girlfriends. DEAR ABBY: My husband thinks it’s OK to read over someone’s shoulder. I have tried explaining that I think it’s rude, but he says I’m rude for asking him not to do it. He thinks I have something to hide if I tell him to stop. What say you? -- NOTHING TO HIDE IN OHIO DEAR NOTHING TO HIDE: I say you married a man who is insecure and suspicious, and you have my sympathy.

Mountain Garden Club brings color to local roads Mountain Garden Club members and friends make up the weeding crew at the North Conway Roundabout.

Club’s civic improvements project group takes on North Conway Roundabout CONWAY — Norma Whitmore, the Mountain Garden Club Civic Improvements Project chair, organized a group of 14 Mountain Garden Club members and friends to clean up the very visible North Conway Roundabout by Lowes and Hannafords. In an hour and a half they were able to get rid of all the weeds, so it is a more pleasing sight to the visiting tourists and residents who drive by so often. This summer there are about 70 Mountain Garden Club members working around the Mount Wash-

ington Valley on improvement project locations: three in Bartlett, two in Jackson, two in North Conway, one in Conway, one in Eaton and one in Freedom. Approximately 1,000 hours will be expended in these efforts. So, be on the lookout for the bright lime green safety vests when you are out and about in the Valley. Those are Mountain Garden Club members happily at work beautifying the community, because “Our Roots are in the Valley.” The Mountain Garden Club,

established 38 years ago, is a member of the New Hampshire Federation of Garden Clubs – District 1, and of the National Garden Clubs, Inc. – New England Region. Membership is open to men and women of the Mount Washington Valley. The club is dedicated to promoting horticultural education, civic beautification, and conservation through volunteerism and friendship in the Mount Washington Valley.

Albany Town Column

Mary Leavitt 447-1710/Dorothy Solomon 447-1199

Annual Albany Town Picnic is July 23

The selectmen’s office will be closed from July 18 through July 22. The Albany Land Governance Board will meet on July 14 at 5 pm. at the town hall and the board will meet with Sean Thomas of U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta’s office on July 19 at 4:30 p.m. Mike Martin of the Forest Service, who replaced Terry Miller, came to discuss the ongoing Northeast Swift Project containing approximately 11,000 acres and show the board the area on a

map. He gave a short summary of what is currently happening and what will happen in the future. Mike invited everyone to the Weeks Act event that will take place at the Auto Road on July 29. Many activities are planned as well as history displays with many sponsors and partners in play. Congress passed the Weeks act in 1911 and lead to the creation of the White Mountain Nation Forest in 1918. Photographs of the region at that time looked a lot different from today. These pho-

tographs depict a region stripped of trees streams damaged, and erosion to the hillsides. Today the forest is beautiful and has many trails to take. On Saturday, July 23, the fourth annual Albany Town Picnic will take place at the historic Russell/ Colbath Barn on the Kancamagus Highway at 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It will take place rain or shine. There will be an afternoon of good food and friendship. see ALBANY page 49

Caregivers workshop July 20

Back when I was in college – and that’s going back a ways – the Peanut’s comic strip created by Charles Schultz was very popular. You had Peanuts TV shows, Peanuts books, Peanuts cards, Peanuts posters, mugs, toys, etc. After all, who could resist a long eared beagle that sometimes imagined he was a World War I fighter pilot going up against the infamous Red Baron? The comments these characters made were silly yet somehow profound, a bit harsh perhaps yet honest, ridiculous sometimes yet always hilarious. I believe Mr. Schultz and his Peanuts’ family had a very positive influence on many of us back then and judging by the TV shows and plays that continue to be seen today, I’d say they still are. You’re a good man, Charlie Brown! We had a wonderful turnout for our July 4 craft fair and I just want to thank everyone that came out to support the center over the holiday weekend. The nutrition department is still looking for drivers to deliver meals on wheels especially for our Madison and

Bartlett routes. If you have two or three hours to spare during the week, please call 356-3231 and ask for the nutrition department. It’s a great way to support your community and neighbors!

Mother Seton House receives grant from Gibson/Woodbury Foundation Page 46 — THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011

CONWAY - The Advisory Board of the Gibson/Woodbury Charitable Foundation concluded its first year of operation by inviting trustees of Mother Seton House, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting pregnant women, new mothers, and infants in need, to the Gibson/ Woodbury House in North Conway. Gibson/Woodbury Charitable Foundation Advisory Board presented Alan Broyer, Mother Seton House board chairman with a check for $30,000 as a gift toward the purchase of a home in Fryeburg, Maine. This substantial sum allows Mother Seton House to proceed with the essential goal of a safe, supportive environment for mothers and infants. With his family members present, Mark Butterfield, foundation executive director, explained to the gathering that this grant request among all the others that the board made in 2011, exemplifies the core values of its founders, the Gibsons and the Woodburys, that education should begin as early as possible and then be nurtured throughout childhood by a caring and loving parent or parents who are able to provide a stable learning environment. The Gibsons and the Woodburys were strong believers that the best education a child could

ever experience begins in the home and that those early years of life are the most critical to early childhood formation of positive learning habits and the development of a strong work ethic. Advisory board members of the Gibson/Woodbury Charitable Foundation said the board is honored to be a part of the inception of the Mother Seton House residence in Fryeburg, Maine. Coincidentally, the Mother Seton House mission of providing education, counseling, referrals, and physical, emotional and spiritual support within a caring community to new mothers and children was one of the guiding principles that the founders envisioned when they initiated the creation of The Gibson/Woodbury Charitable Foundation. Mother Seton House Board Chairman Alan Broyer said that the mothers residing with their babies at Mother Seton House will not only be coached in parenting, consumer, employment and relationship skills, but will begin to develop the resources needed to support themselves and their children. Grateful Mother Seton House trustees, volunteers, donors and Director Cyndi Broyer said they are heartened by the confidence of the advisory board of the Gibson/Woodbury Charitable Foundation.

Evergreen Institute offers creative healing arts at Art in the Park

CONWAY — Get ready to let your creative flag fly with Evergreen Institute for Wellness at the annual Art in the Park event on Saturday, July 23. “Creative Healing Arts” activities, sponsored by Evergreen and friends, are scheduled to take place throughout the day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Paint a banner, write a poem, enjoy the music, and join the community dance. Stay an hour or all day. Evergreen board member and art therapist Benita Silver approached the Mount Washington Valley Arts Association with a proposal to incorporate an interactive component of the creative arts as part of Art in the Park. “Our idea is to let people explore different creative arts — painting, writing, movement — as a way for everyone to enjoy the experience of creativity and learn more about the various arts,” she said. Artist Thais Charbonnet is going to be making art as well as helping organize the day’s events. “We are all creative beings” she said, “even those who may not imagine themselves as such.” She added, “I’m excited to participate in this group art project because it’s my experience that people connect in a profound way through the unique gift of the creative process.” Research demonstrates that art and music create different brain wave patterns and affect a person’s autonomic nervous system. Every cell in the body seems engaged in generating changes within the immune system. The healing arts have been shown to create hope and positivity, often transforming a person’s outlook, attitude, perception, and way of being in the world. Evergreen’s activities throughout the day at Schouler Park include art, music, dance, poetry and education: •Musician Brian Charles, owner of North Conway Music Shop, offers


sounds from Australia’s mystical Outback. He plays the Didgeridoo, an ancient Australian log horn, an instrument from what may be the world’s oldest continuous culture. He is accompanying Jeanne Limmer throughout the morning in her dances. •Limmer and her dance center alumni offer an improvisational dance performance, beginning around 10:30 a.m. Limmer also shares how she used art, dance and journaling to overcome the challenges of cancer, retuning her to a sense of health and well-being. All are invited to participate in a community dance to celebrate the creative arts. •Art teacher Sarah Eastman, art therapist Benita Silver and artist Thais Charbonnet are engaging people’s creativity through the medium of painting. Paint a personal or family banner to take home, and add something to the “community canvas” that will be available for everyone. •Local poets Marnie Cobbs and Sarah Audsley invite people to explore poetry and what it can awaken in the mind and spirit. Experience poetry in 3D through a structure created by communal poems. •Husband and wife team Tom Rebmann and Mary Bastoni-Rebmann and music instructor Rebecca Moore share their love of music and children with some hands-on activities. Children and families are going to create musical shakers out of rice, beans, easter eggs and more while enjoying Rebmann’s guitar playing. Dance and music begin around 10:30 a.m.; art and self-directed poetry throughout the day. More activities and specific times will be added. Check local media and keep posted on the most current schedule at evergreenforwellness. org and on Facebook. see EVERGREEN page 48

How are we really doing? BY JASON ROBIE So how are we REALLY doing, you ask? Like anything else that can be reviewed and quantified, the numbers can pretty much tell any story you want them to. Like a former broker/ owner always told me: “Liars figure and figures lie." Let’s take a look at the “figures” and we’ll let you decide for yourself. There is a lot of trepidation right now in both the real estate market and the financial markets alike. The debt ceiling “issue” certainly has a lot of folks nervous about the stability of our economy. I’m no financial expert, but I think this deserves a healthy dose of attention. With all of the governmental changes proposed, we could see an impact to home buyers and re-financers alike. While nobody can argue that the lending practices from a few years ago got us into this mess, we clearly need to be careful to not swing that pendulum too far back in the other direction! Taking a look at the numbers in the immediate area market (Bartlett, Conway, Jackson, Madison) there are trends in both directions. Looking at the first six months of the year, the number of units (single-family homes) sold for 2009, 2010 and 2011 were 89, 108 and 110 respectively. One could argue the numbers are clawing their way back up from the “crash” and starting to level off. According to our statistics in the Multiple Listing Service, we have seen an increase in the average selling price, from 2009-2010. It went from $175,000 to $181,000. Again, looks promising and is headed in the right direction. One of the factors currently holding the market back is the foreclosures. The good news for us, however, is that we have not seen a huge amount of inventory of bank-owned property in the Mount Washington Valley area. A good amount of bank-owned properties are south of us and across the nation. Let’s hope that we won’t be affected by what is being called the second round of bank-owned properties enter our marketplace. Looking again at the first six months of the year, the average sale price (single-family homes) has dipped $16,000 from 2011, but the number of units sold actually jumped up a bit. Part of this dip is due to the fact that what we did have on the market that was bank-owned, did sell, but clearly it brought the average sales price of real estate down a bit! Buyers are being more careful with how they spend their money, and the government is making it a little more challenging for them to borrow it. In today’s environment a steady job and decent credit rating are key to being able to buy a home! If foreclosures are the best deal on the market, they are going to sell first. We have seen it happen and will continue to see it until the bank-owned properties start to fade away. This still presents a fantastic opportunity for both buyers and sellers. They are simply encouraged to invest in real estate with open eyes and realistic expectations. Mortgage rates are amazing and the inventory is ripe with opportunity. This really is a great time to be in real estate! There are loads of factors that come into play when a property sells. As the old saying goes, “There’s a bum for every seat." Our job as Realtors is to find the one that fits! Listen. If what you are offering for sale is worth see ROBIE page 52

These days, everywhere you turn, you hear about farm stands, locally grown vegetables, and farmer’s markets. Why buy locally grown? The answer is simple: Locally grown veggies taste better! Knowing where your food comes from affords you the opportunity to have more background information about what you’re eating, and eating naturallygrown produce is just better for you. Bearcamp Garden in West Ossipee opened a farm stand this year and is selling its own naturally-grown produce. The process started last fall when Cyle Foye and Casey Robinson jumped at the chance to put their love of farming and gardening to use. The field at Bearcamp was plowed and sowed with

a cover crop of winter rye to help improve the contents of the soil while they, along with Betsy Spencer and Peter Coldwell,

owners of Bearcamp Garden, made plans for what to plant and how to best take care of it. Bearcamp Garden tries to do something

At least once a month all of the Realtors on the White Mountain Board of Realtors and for that matter nationwide are asked to contact their Congress men and women and their U.S. Senators regarding issues that not only affect Realtors, but all consumers who either own a home or wish to buy a home. The National Association of Realtors is a very well organized association that keeps an eye on our lawmakers in Washington for the purpose of keeping the real estate industry healthy. In recent years, we have seen a decline in real estate values throughout the country. The purpose of this article is not to dwell on the past, but to focus on the present and the future. The housing industry will improve when industry starts hiring again. The following is an example of how local Realtors everywhere, with just a few clicks, can send a message to Washington D.C. that says, "We are watching you, make the right decisions to keep America strong, and this is what we as Realtors recommend." Time is running out on important housingrelated issues before Congress. We need Realtors to contact their elected representatives in Washington D.C. today. If you do not make your voice heard, then who will help protect our markets and the consumers who rely on us to represent their needs in addition to our own? Taking action is simple and only takes a few seconds. Here is what we need for you to do: * Reauthorize National Flood Insurance Program to ensure access for millions of Americans to affordable flood insurance which is not available in the private insurance market. The House has passed its bill. Now we need you to urge the Senate to act.

Without reauthorization, the National Flood Insurance Program also will expire on Sept. 30, 2011. Today, 5.6 million property owners rely on the program in 21,000 communities where flood insurance is required for federally-related mortgages. Both consumers and your fellow Realtors are counting on your to help get this bill passed. * Make permanent the current loan limits for FHA, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to ensure the affordability of mortgage credit for hundreds of thousands of responsible and credit-worthy American families. Just three months from now the cost of a mortgage could rise significantly. If this happens, many of your clients run the risk of being priced out of the American Dream of home ownership. This could hold back the housing recovery. The new loan limits show that more than 669 counties in 42 states and the territories would be negatively impacted by the loan limit change. * Take action to ensure your clients have access to affordable mortgages. The current FHA and GSE loan limits have been in place since February of 2008, when they were passed as part of the Emergency Stimulus Act. Housing conditions have not improved enough to warrant letting the limits drop. Mortgage loan limits will drop without Congressional action. The current loan limits are set to expire on Sept. 30, 2011. Unless Congress acts, FHA and GSE loan limits will drop to 115 percent of local area median home price with a cap of $625,500 (from the current limit of 125 percent of local area median home price with a cap of $729,750). Decreasing the limits impacts nearly every state — not just the high-cost areas. FHFA and FHA have published the new limits, see next page

and more than 669 counties in 42 states and the territories would be negatively impacted by the loan limit change. The average decline in loan limits would be more than $68,000. Only eight states will see no decline. Every other state, including New Hampshire, will see a drop in loan limits! Housing markets are rebounding, but the recovery will be slow. With tight underwriting constraining mortgage availability, lowering the FHA/Fannie/Freddie loan limits will only further restrict liquidity. Even with the current higher limits, borrowers are finding it more and more

difficult to obtain affordable mortgage financing. Making the current limits permanent at levels appropriate in all parts of the country will provide homeowners and home buyers with safe, affordable financing and help stabilize local housing markets. It’s a matter of fairness. Retaining the current loan limits will allow home buyers in higher cost areas to have access to affordable mortgage financing and share the same opportunity to achieve homeownership that borrowers in other regions of the country enjoy. Congress cannot wait. Although the limits don’t expire until Sept. 30, action cannot wait. It takes FHA and the GSEs

several months to reset their underwriting systems to accept the loan limits. If there is a delay beyond July, there will be a gap in loan limits, and borrowers will be left in limbo. * Ensure your clients have access to affordable mortgages. On Sept. 30, the cost of a mortgage could rise significantly. If this happens, many of your clients run the risk of being priced out of the American dream of home ownership. Even worse, this could hold back the housing recovery. Karl Seibel is with Coldwell Banker Wright Realty in Conway. He is a member of the N.H.

The new open-door policy when selling homes

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011— Page 57


Many view open houses as essential to help promote a listing, attract buyers and appease sellers, many of whom still consider open houses critical to a well-conceived marketing plan. "They give buyers an opportunity to see a lot of inventory and compare similarly-priced properties and neighborhoods," says Barb St. Amant, of Harry Norman, Realtors in Atlanta. But others are less certain they generate sales and consider them to be time consuming, costly and a way mostly to bring in nosy neighbors or those looking for decorating tips or free food. "Homes rarely sell as a result of an open house," says salesman Bill Golden with RE/MAX Metro Atlanta. Yet, he adds, "you never know." But one thing is certain. Today's open houses are a different breed than those of yesteryear, due to buyers' increased use of the Internet, which has helped educate them in advance of looking about pricing and values. Following are tips for homeowners and real estate pros to make an open

house as effective as possible for all involved: Use the Internet Because of the proliferation of listings, virtual tours and subsequent sale prices posted on the web, more potential buyers start their search by researching possibilities online rather than when they cross an open-house threshold. Doing so saves them time to weed out possibilities, says Ria Scoma, an associate with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Delmar, Calif. It's therefore critical for salespeople and brokers to have an online presence with realistically listed prices and information updated regularly, adds Karen Greco, an agent with Michael Saunders & Co. in Sarasota, Fla. Look seriously and be prepared With generally busier lives, buyers who visit open houses nowadays are more serious about making a purchase rather than just being voyeurs, says Al Becker, marketing director for Jack Conway and Co. Realtors in the Boston area. Greco agrees, "People aren't coming for the cookies or coffee. They want information." It's also essential for the real estate salesperson

hosting an open house to be well-informed. Linda Black, associate manager and branch training director of Coldwell Banker in Marina Del Rey, Calif., provides a printout of comparable area open houses. Real estate marketer Becker urges salespeople to be prepared to field questions about the neighborhood and house rather than just babysit it or work on a laptop. Golden agrees, citing a list of do's and don'ts that can guide homeowners about what they should expect of anyone they hire: * Don't follow people around; it makes them uncomfortable and they tend to avoid staying. * Do share a few pertinent facts about the house. Tell visitors to walk around and follow up by asking if they have questions; * Do make sure the house and lawn are in the great shape. * Do make yourself aware of all neighborhood listings for comparison.

The odds of improving attendance and getting a contract can be improved with newer methods: Interactive mingling. Create an interactive environment to help a space come alive. The RitzCarlton Residences at LA Life, a condo in downtown Los Angeles, has used pop-up art galleries, live-art installations and musical performances, says Elizabeth Lascaze, who helped orchestrate them. Cohesive staging. Staging remains important to get a listing ready to view, but besides cleared counter tops, a unified design theme and palette improve the odds of a sale, says Shanna Middleton, an agent in Cary, N.C. Multiple open houses. To attract buyers and make it easier for them to look at more homes over a weekend, a group of colleagues, several area companies or real estate associations now organize neighborhood-, city- or statewide open houses. "It draws more attention to the homes — and hopefully more traffic," Golden says. This spring Jack Conway and Co. Realtors' 42 residential offices hosted more than 300 open houses one weekend. Michael Saunders & Co. has piggybacked its open houses onto ones organized by the Florida association. When the stars align, sales contracts may materialize — and quickly. Becker attributes at least two sales contracts to his firm's recent open-house weekend. "One sold five minutes after the open house began," he says. © CTW Features

Should UNH Cooperative Extension move to Ossipee? BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — Should UNH Cooperative Extension of Carroll County be relocated from Conway to Ossipee? A subcommittee of lawmakers wants residents' input at a public hearing on July 18. The larger question is: Should the county fund cooperative extension at all? The public hearing will begin at 6 p.m. at the county administration building. Currently, this county's branch of University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension office is located in commercial office space in Conway. However, a majority of county commissioners would like to move the cooperative extension into the old Mountain View Nursing Home building. The county is building a new nursing home, which will be in use by early fall. "We're interested in hearing what people's thoughts are," said subcommittee chairman Mark McConkey (R-Freedom). In Carroll County, a group of 14 state representatives, called the delegation, allocates money for the county budget. The county commissioners manage the money with help from department heads. McConkey said a previous delegation told the cooperative extension it would eventually be moved back into the county complex but now members of the current delegation are looking the issue again. As an example, McConkey, said Rep. Frank McCarthy (R-Conway) expressed concern that Ossipee would

be too far for northern county residents to travel. Also, some lawmakers fear that rehabilitating the old nursing home building would be too expensive. At the last delegation meeting, lawmakers mused about cutting funding to the cooperative extension. The county funds cooperative extension to the tune of $230,786. Ultimately, delegates voted overwhelmingly to "support the concept" of cooperative extension. UNH Cooperative Extension forester Wendy Scribner said er organization would appreciate any support it can get. Several cooperative extension representatives will be in attendance at the meeting on July 18. Cooperative extension is neutral on the question of if it should stay in Conway or move to Ossipee. Although lawmakers have signaled support for cooperative extension, their willingness to fund it could come up as an issue, she said. "The question is hanging out there," said Scribner. McConkey said lawmakers will be able to take feedback on this issue until Aug. 22. On Wednesday, county commissioners learned it might be possible for them to get a $500,000 grant for rehabilitating a portion of the old nursing home for the purpose of helping low-income people. One of the most promising possibilities would be to renovate space for a day-care center for adults or children. Cooperative extension offers a variety of educational programs on such topics as agriculture, money management, parenting, forestry and nutrition. It also offers 4-H youth development.

Fewer Americans file for bankruptcy

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, July 16, 2011— Page 59

Open House Sat., July 16 10am - Noon 180 Walnut Loop, Madison • MLS4042458 • $328,900

Stunning sun filled home featuring open floor plan with generous spaces for gracious living and grand entertaining. Granite entry, cozy living room with wood burning fireplace, and the elegant master suite occupies an entire floor! Must see!


After steadily climbing for several years, the number of Americans filing for bankruptcy is on the decline, though that is not necessarily an indicator of an improving economy. The number of bankruptcy filings in June was 120,623, or an average of 5,483 a day, a drop of 6.2 percent from May, when filings totaled 122,775, or 5,846 a day, according to a report from Epiq Systems, which tracks bankruptcy filings. There was one additional day to file in June compared with May. Average daily filings are down nearly 10 percent from June of last year. Though economic factors like foreclosures and unemployment play a role in bankruptcy, over the long run, the filing rate tends to be more closely tethered to the amount of outstanding consumer debt. Access to credit, however, can influence the bankruptcy rate over the shorter term: as lenders tighten their standards, filings tend to rise because struggling consumers can no longer rely on credit cards or other loans to get them through a rough period. But when more new loans are being made, filings tend to fall — at least for a while. “There is a lot of mythology about what drives bankruptcy rates,” said Robert M. Lawless, a professor at the University of Illinois College of Law who specializes in bankruptcy. “But consumer credit appears to be the most significant indicator.” Over all, he said he expected filings to decline 5 to 10 percent this year, leveling off at about 1.46 million, largely because consumers have slightly more access to credit now than in recent years. But he also said that consumers had taken on less debt in the past three years, which means there is less debt to discharge and fewer incentives to file bankruptcy. That estimate compares with about 1.56 million bankruptcy filings in 2010 and nearly 1.45 million in 2009. Filings surpassed two million in 2005, when many people rushed to declare bankruptcy before a new law went into effect that made it more difficult, and significantly more expensive, to file. There have been 731,237 filings this year. “If they keep going the way they were,” Lawless said, “bankruptcy filings will keep going down a little bit.” So far this year, the vast majority of the bankruptcy cases — nearly 70 percent — were Chapter 7 filings, which provide individuals with the proverbial “fresh start” because their debts are forgiven. (To qualify, filers need to pass a means test to determine whether they are unable to repay their debts.) In contrast, a Chapter 13 filing requires individuals to use their disposable income to pay back a portion of their debts through a three- or five-year repayment plan. Some people choose Chapter 13 because it allows them to save their primary homes from foreclosure, though they are required to catch up on their mortgage payments. Slightly more than 27 percent were Chapter 13 filings. (The remainder were mostly commercial filings.) The overall split between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 filings is consistent with last year’s ratio.
