Bartlett and Hart’s Location particularly hard hit by Sunday’s tropical storm; section of Route 302 may be closed for weeks BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The remnants of Hurricane Irene blasted through the Mount Washington Valley on Sunday, destroying roads, flooding homes and forcing rescues from Conway to the notches. The almost five inches of rain in the valley and more than six and a half inches in the mountains caused rivers to surge. The Saco River went from flowing at less than 1,000 cubic feet per second to

more than 30,000 cubic feet per second in a number of hours. The river was above 14 feet when the gauge failed. It’s unclear just how high it got during its peak, but the destruction it left in its wake was clear on Monday: Jericho Road in Bartlett flooded, washing away several camps and homes; 22 people had to be rescued from Transvale Acres in Conway as floods overwhelmed houses and trailers; officials closed Route 302 in Hart's Location after whole sections succumbed to the force of the water;

and West Side Road and River Road were closed, cutting off most of the western portion of the Saco River valley. “Yesterday was a blur,” said Bartlett fire chief Pat Roberts. “We were absolutely inundated.” The mess was obvious on Monday, with houses along Route 302 still submerged and cars sitting askew along Jericho Road. “The rivers came up almost instantaneously,” Roberts said. “We had to rescue

Tactics in Libya may be a model for other efforts

WASHINGTON (NY Times) — It would be premature to call the war in Libya a complete success for United States interests. But the arrival of victorious rebels on the shores of Tripoli last week gave President Obama’s senior advisers a chance to claim a key victory for an Obama doctrine for the Middle East that had been roundly criticized. Administration officials say that even though the NATO intervention in Libya, emphasizing airstrikes to protect civilians, cannot be applied uniformly in other hotspots like Syria, the conflict may, in some important ways, become a model for how the United States wields force in other countries where its interests are threatened. The Libya action helped to establish two principles for when the United States could apply military force to advance diplomatic interests even if its national security is not threatened. Obama laid out those principles on March 28, when he gave an address on the Libya conflict, During that speech, Obama said that America had the responsibility to stop what he characterized as a looming genocide in the Libyan city of Benghazi (Principle 1). At the same time, he said, when the safety of Americans is not directly threatened but where action can be justified — in the case of genocide, say — the United States will act only on the condition that it is not acting alone (Principle 2).


If we don’t end war, war will end us.” —H. G. Wells

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (NY Times) — As 5.5 million homes and businesses remained without power across the Eastern seaboard and blue skies and temperate breezes replaced what had been Hurricane Irene, a clearer picture of the storm’s devastation emerged Monday with inland communities in upstate New York and Vermont continuing to suffer the most acute consequences from river flooding. While most eyes were warily

watching the shore during Irene’s grinding ride up the East Coast, it was inland — sometimes hundreds of miles inland — that the storm’s most serious devastation actually occurred. And it was the water, not the wind, that was the major culprit. In New York, the town of Prattsville has been washed away. In other areas, houses were swept from their foundations and one woman drowned on Sunday when an overflowing creek submerged the

cottage where she was vacationing. Flash floods continued to be a concern into the afternoon on Monday. In Vermont, people remained stranded with dwindling provisions of food and water after bridges collapsed and hundreds of roads remained under water. Swollen rivers continued to be a threat. And some two dozen emergency shelters were “chock full” of hundreds of people displaced from flooded homes, Gov. Peter Shumlin said.

N.Y. subway back; other transit rumbles to life NEW YORK (NY Times) — The New York City subway, whose closing in the lead-up to Tropical Storm Irene was perhaps the most unsettling element of a prodigious storm preparation effort, was back to its usual robust self on Monday, with most trains running on a nearly normal schedule. All of the subway’s 22 lines, including express and local service, were restored, according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. While the agency said fewer trains ran than in a regular morning

rush, anecdotal reports from commuters suggested that most routes were operating smoothly. Every station in the system was being served by trains. The Metro-North Railroad, began running some trains on its Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines, after a morning when the railroad lay dormant. New Jersey Transit expects the trains to resume running on a limited schedule on Tuesday morning. The Long Island Rail Road was running service on six branches, but four of its lines were not operating.

(NY Times) — Under clear skies, airlines that serve the New York City area and other Northeastern cities started to return their planes to service on Monday, but many warned that travelers whose plans were thrown into disarray by Hurricane Irene could still face scheduling problems and delays through the week. The challenges in reinstating flights, after tens of thousands of them were canceled over the weekend, were evident at some airports on Monday, showing that at this early stage, at least, the airlines were struggling to siphon off the backlog of delayed or stranded passengers. Frustrated travelers jammed Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Monday. People slept on floors, sat on their bags or on luggage carts to read, or watched movies on their computers. Industry analysts said that it could take about a week to unwind the snarled traffic caused by the approximately 10,000 to 12,000 flights canceled because of the hurricane, although it depended on the airline and the airport.

Former Louisiana Gov. Buddy Roemer to stump in Conway Wednesday BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Former Louisiana Governor Buddy Roemer, who is running for president, will be in the Mount Washington Valley for the first time on the campaign trail Wednesday with a busy day on the stump planned. Roemer is scheduled to speak at the Conway Cafe from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Cafe owner Joe Quirk has arranged a small breakfast buffet for the general public that will be sold for $7. Roemer will take questions from the public. From 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., Roemer will meet and greet citizens at the Gibson Center for Senior Services in North Conway. Roemer will cap his visit with an editorial board at The Conway Daily Sun from 1 to 2 p.m. Roemer served four terms in the U.S. Congress from 1981 to 1988 as a conservative Democrat who often broke ranks with his party to vote with President Reagan, and served as the 52nd governor of Louisiana, from 1988 to 1992. He was elected as a Democrat but switched to the Republican Party on March 11, 1991. According to Roemer's website (, during his tenure in the governor’s office, "unemployment in the state dropped by approximately half, the state budget was balanced all years despite inheriting a huge deficit, teacher pay was linked to performance, education accountability standards were enacted, govern-



ment unions were challenged, and sweeping campaign finance reform legislation was passed." On July 21, 2011, Roemer announced his entry into the presidential race at Dartmouth College in Hanover, and he has been stumping heavily in the Granite State ever since. He's running a campaign where he's seeking maximum financial donations of no more than $100 from any one person or business. "Please help elect a President who is free to lead America by making a personal donation up to $100," his website states. "When we break the strangle-hold of special interest money on Washington, D.C., together we can tackle America's fiscal crisis, streamline government, and restore opportunity and hope for our citizens." In his successful bid for governor, Roemer led a fiery campaign calling for a "Roemer Revolution," promising to "scrub the budget," overhaul the education system, reform campaign finance rules, and slash the state bureaucracy by "bricking up the top three floors of the Education Building." According to the popular website Wikipedia, "Perhaps the key moment in the 1987 race came at a forum between the candidates. As usual, the main topic of discussion was threeterm incumbent governor Edwin Edwards. His challengers were asked, in succession, if they would consider endorsing Edwards in the general election if they didn't make it to the runoff. The candidates hedged, particularly Secretary of State Jim

Brown. The last candidate to speak was Roemer: 'No, we've got to slay the dragon. I would endorse anyone but Edwards.' The next day, as political commentator John Maginnis put it, Brown was explaining his statement while Roemer was ordering 'Slay the Dragon' buttons. Boosted by his endorsement as the 'good government candidate' by nearly every newspaper in the state, Roemer stormed from last place in the polls and on election night, overtook Edwin Edwards and placed first in the primary election, with 33 percent of the vote compared with Edwards' 28 percent. Edwards, recognizing he could not make up the large number of votes that would be needed, withdrew from the pending general election with Roemer, an act that essentially handed the governorship to Roemer. By withdrawing, Edwards denied Roemer the opportunity to build a governing coalition in the general election race, thus denying him a decisive majority victory. Also, Edwards virtually ceded control of the state to Roemer even before his inauguration." As governor, the site continued, "Roemer worked to boost lagging teacher pay and toughened laws on campaign finance. State employees and retirees received small pay increases too, the first in many years of austere state budgets. Roemer was also the first governor in state history to make a real effort to address environmental deficiencies." Roemer also ushered in the modern era of gambling in Louisiana. In 1991,

Governor Buddy Roemer

at his urging, the legislature legalized 15 floating casinos throughout Louisiana and video poker at bars and truck stops throughout the state. Roemer would leave office before the riverboat casinos or video poker went on line. Since leaving public office, Roemer has been involved in a number of business ventures. Most recently, according to his website, he served as the founder, CEO and president of Business First Bank, a small business community bank with approximately $650 million in assets that took no bailout money from the federal government. Roemer lives in Baton Rouge, La., with his wife Scarlett, and is the father of three children. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard College and his MBA from Harvard Business School.

Only way to reduce poverty is self-reliance To the editor: Can you liberals please cut out the baloney about tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires? It is getting kind of old. To begin with, there aren’t enough millionaires and billionaires in the country to make a dent in the deficit, even if you took all their money from them. This constant drumbeat is all about class warfare, not deficit reduction. Another point the bleeding hearts just don’t get is that the money people earn in a free society belongs to them, not the government. The Constitution grants the government the right to tax for the legitimate functions of government, not to confiscate people’s money in the name of redistribution of wealth or to take care of every freeloader in the population or for every new non-legitimate function the government decides to take

on. The government and liberals do not get to decide how much money people can keep out of what they have earned. For those of you who keep telling us about how we are giving tax cuts to the ultrawealthy at the expense of “the poor and most vulnerable,” please give us a break. You and a power hungry government are responsible for the ever-increasing number of those poor and most vulnerable. The only way to reduce poverty is to instill the need for self-reliance, not to continue the cycle of dependence on your fellow citizens. Having as many “poor and most vulnerable” may get lots of votes for liberal politicians, but the inevitable result will be the bankrupting and continued decline of our once-great country. Mark Winters Hale’s Location

Thanks for Conway’s summer program To the editor: I just want to take a moment and thank John Eastman, Mike Lane, Lynore Wagner, Corie Frechette, and all the counselors at the Conway Recreation Department for providing our children with another spectacular summer camp. I can’t imagine the organizing that is involved in planning a summer’s worth of games, movies, trips, and

shows for so many kids, but as usual the Conway Recreation staff helped make this summer yet another one filled with fun and memories. The staff and counselors love what they do, they love our kids, and we are extremely fortunate to have such an outstanding program. Thank you again, Conway Rec., for all that you do.

How was business this summer?

With everybody’s mind on Irene, there were very few responses to this week’s Tele-Talk question, “How was business this summer?’” Business is great this summer. I called Obama and he said I could go on a vacation with him, but he never called me back. Then I called Crow Dickinson and he said I couldn’t go with him either. So, I think what we’re going to do is just hold a corn roast and raise some money and go on vacation. Business was great this summer, unbelievable. People in the Mount Washington valley, most of them are so lazy they won’t get off their butts and work. They came out with this great thing a few years ago, it’s called work. Don’t depend on Obama and the U.S. government to take care of you. None of your business! This is Ralph in Eaton.

The following Tele-Talk response was posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page: Business is business! And business must grow regardless of crummies in tummies, you know. I meant no harm. I most truly did not. But I had to grow bigger. So bigger I got. I biggered my factory. I biggered my roads. I biggered my wagons. I biggered the loads of the Thneeds I shipped out. I was shipping them forth to the South! To the East! To the West! To the North! I went right on biggering, selling more Thneeds. And I biggered my money, which everyone needs.

Postal challenges

The United States Postal Service has recently seen a surge of media coverage. Some is based upon false assumptions and a lack of understanding about the challenges facing the nation’s postal system. Here are the facts. The Postal Service is in a dire financial situation. The problem isn’t that the USPS is inefficient or wasteful. It’s that it has less to do. Ten years ago, you received bills for your utilities, cable, the phone, fuel and electricity, a car payment or two, the mortgage or rent payment, credit cards, lawn care, bank statements and property or school taxes. You would have mailed nine or 10 checks for payment each month. You might even have sent a card or letter to Grandma or personal friends. Month after month, you’d do the same. Today, you probably receive electronic notices for many items. You’ll send out two checks, and handle the rest online. Ten years ago, you were part of around 20 separate transactions by mail. Today, you are part of four or six. That’s up to an 80 percent drop due to changes in how America uses communications to conduct business. In fact, over the past five years, mail volume has declined by 43.1 billion pieces; customer visits have declined by 200 million; and retail transactions have declined by $2 billion. The decline in volume includes first-class mail, which has dropped by 50 percent over the past 10 years. We do not expect to ever regain that mail volume. And there’s no buffer of tax dollars, since the postal service’s only revenue is the sale of postage. We face other challenges as well. In 2006, Congress required USPS to pre-fund retiree health benefits by paying roughly $5.5 billion every year for ten years, an obligation no other private or public organization endures. Since then, USPS has contributed more than $37 billion to this

fund. Without this obligation, USPS would be in the black. To meet these challenges, we have worked hard to reduce costs, and have the results to prove it. Nationwide, we saved more than $12 billion since 2001 by reducing work hours, eliminated about 130,000 positions through attrition and by restructuring the workforce and saved $140 million annually since 2008 by consolidating mail-processing centers. We no longer have the mail volume or the customer traffic to warrant more than 32,000 postal facilities across the country. Nor do we have the funds to operate them. That’s why we are studying our inventory of postal facilities in a significant way. For example, Americans can buy stamps — our most common lobby transaction - at more than 100,000 locations across the country including grocery stores, banks, and other local businesses. In fact, four out of 10 stamps sold today will be purchased in places like StopandShop or CVS, places where our customers combine many other errands. You can even find the post office in the palm of your hand: In its first year of operation, the USPS Mobile App was downloaded more than one million times. The Postal Service is at the center of the trillion-dollar mailing industry that employs more than 8 million people and supports over seven percent of the nation’s GDP. These are good paying jobs for families, friends and neighbors who support municipalities and merchants around the nation. So when the Postal Service’s financial situation is in crisis, it is not just a problem for the Postal Service. It is a problem for the entire country.

Deborah C. Essler is the district manager of the Northern New England District of the U.S. Postal Service, which comprises all postal facilities in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

Tropical Storm Irene arrives in Mount Washington Valley

Jamie Gemmiti photos (Pictured clockwise, left to right) It was all hands on deck to keep Route 302 open near Attitash ski area Sunday as a stream overflowed and rocks rolled onto the road; people came out to witness the storm damage to homes and yards in Glen; a few campers had to be rescued from Glen Ellis Campground and were happy to see help arrive — fortunately, no one was injured in Mount Washington Valley from the storm; and Cow Hill in Bartlett was hit by a rock and mud slide from Tropical Storm Irene.

a couple who were trapped in their home,” and then six others who were camping in the Glen Ellis Campground. Water also flowed over the River Street bridge in Bartlett Village, but officials were relieved to find out it was still safe. “We’re going to be able to get that open to one lane traffic,” selectman Gene Chandler said. “Our biggest push is to open up the road so people can cross the river.” State and private crews around Bartlett were cleaning up and patching damage, and by the afternoon a large portion of the washout along Route 302 had been filled in. “We’re just trying to do temporary stuff now,” Chandler said. “We’ve got a lot of work to do.” Many of the roads in Bartlett that got hit the worst, like Jericho Road, are town roads that the town will have to pay rebuild. The town is looking at hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of repairs, Chandler said, and that’s an early rough estimate. “We’ll certainly be applying for FEMA money,” he said, referring to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The governor declared a state of emergency last week before the storm hit, and the president approved the declaration on Saturday. That won’t help Route 302 farther up, however. Several bridges in Hart's Location sustained major damage, and Chandler said the early estimates are it will take three or four weeks to reopen the road. Gov. John Lynch flew into Crawford Notch on a National Guard Blackhawk helicopter on Monday to assess the damage. Chandler said the governor was trying to get talk to the DOT to see if he could get the time frame reduced when he touched down on Monday. The Kancamagus Highway, similarly, was washed out in a number of locations, according to the state, and has been posted as closed indefinitely. Route 16, meanwhile, had problems of its own, though none as bad as those on Route 302 or Route 112. Officials closed the road north of Pinkham Notch on Sunday, but the closure was lifted by 10 a.m. Monday, according to Jackson police officer Doug Jette. Jackson had its own problems too. Downed trees took out utility wires, and the ballfield in the middle of town was flooded. "The river just let loose," Jette said. "We were very fortunate we didn't have any car accident and we didn't have any injuries." Farther south, meanwhile, Conway Village fire chief Steve Solomon said Irene was dominated by rescues that were largely avoidable if people hadn't ignored evacuation orders. “We rescued 22 people from Transvale Acres,” he said. “We had multiple crews there for hours.” The rescues were dangerous, he said, and could have easily been avoided if people hadn’t tried to weather the storm in low-lying areas. “Without that we wouldn’t have had to open a shelter,” he said. The current was swift enough that the department’s boat had a hard time getting to people who needed help, he said, of which there were plenty: “We had a guy on a roof, we had a guy in a tree,” and five people who tried to evacuate in a canoe. Conway rescuers also plucked people from Hillside Avenue, Washington Avenue and Eastside Road, with the help of the North Conway and Center Conway fire departments. “We had 14 people in the shelter overnight,” he said, which was run out of the Conway Recreation Department. “We closed all kinds of roads,” he said, but the damage was light. “All told fairly minor considering what happened around us.” “Our roads are in pretty good shape,” town manager Earl Sires said. “We didn’t really have any significant problems.” It was the same message from the Appalachian Mountain Club.

“Things came through the storm pretty well,” AMC spokesman Rob Burbank said on Monday afternoon. Several trails were eroded and bridges were washed out, he said, but nothing serious. “We anticipate reopening Pinkham and the huts tomorrow.” That might depend, however, on when the White Mountain National Forest reopens, which the U.S. Forest Service closed in anticipation of the storm. According to Mount Washington Observatory meteorologist Rick Giard, up high there were sustained hurricane-force winds and lots of rain. "A little shy of seven inches," he said, and a peak 120 mph gust at 2:35 a.m. Monday. New Hampshire Electric Cooperative said in a statement it had roughly 21,000 customers without power on Monday morning and was having trouble restoring power because of the flooding and road damage. More than 1,200 of the co-op's Bartlett customers were affected.

Irene: the aftermath (Pictured clockwise from top to bottom) Tropical Storm Irene ripped through a stretch of Route 302 in Glen; some valley residents such as this one on Hillside Avenue in Bartlett became landlocked due to the storm; the Rocky Branch flooded its banks in Glen; New Hampshire Governor John Lynch toured Hart’s Location and Bartlett Monday afternoon to view first hand the wrath of Tropical Storm Irene. Governor Lynch had to land by helicopter in Hart’s Location as Route 302 was closed. Here, he chats with Rep. Gene Chandler, R-Bartlett, and former represntative Ed Butler, who lives in Hart’s Location; and homes in Glen were still under water 24 hours after Irene left the area.

couple, out of the trailer through the laundry chute. That was the only trailer that sustained damage at the resort, said Battles. "We were very lucky we didn't get the winds and the rains they say were saying we were going to get," said Battles. The couple weren't available for comment Monday. Battles said they will be staying at Purity Springs Resort in Madison. "We'll get them taken care of so they'll have a place stay," said Battles. "I'm sure they've already contacted their insurance company." Some campers travel seasonally between Florida and New Hampshire and don't have the option of going back to a house, said Battles. The couple with the damaged trailer had been staying at a section of the campsite called the Bluffs RV Resort, which is for seasonal and extended-stay campers who are 50 and older without children. After the tree came down, the resort moved the couple into a cabin. Most of the overnight campers, in the Danforth Bay area of the resort, had left, said Battles. Freedom fire chief Gene Doe said the couple was sitting in the living room when the tree crashed into their dining room, destroying that section of the trailer. "If they were sitting in the dining room it would have been a different scenario," said Doe. "They were definitely lucky." Two firefighters and an ambulance worker went into the trailer to help the couple. Doe said everyone left through a "trapdoor" at the bottom of the floor which led to a small pocket space on the side of the trailer. Initially, the fire department was going to cut the tree off the trailer, but that would have made the situation worse, said Doe. Overall, Irene wasn't that bad for Freedom, said Doe. No one had to use the town hall for a shelter. About 30 campers at the resort went to the Club House to ride out the storm. They spent the time playing games and having a bit of a potluck. Danforth Bay only lost power for an hour, said Battles. In Ossipee, there was some dramatic moments when the Bearcamp River flooded over and began pushing a 500pound propane tank off the side of a house on Grizzly Road, said Ossipee Police Lt. James Eldridge. Fire crews used a boat to better secure the tank to the house. "We couldn't let it float down river, it would have been like a 500-pound bomb," said Eldridge. Downstream, Center Ossipee Fire Department was staging on a bridge on Route 16 in case any firefighters were swept away while responding to the Grizzly Road incident, said Eldridge. During that time, travel on the bridge was restricted to one lane. The Lovell River River crested over Route 16 near Indian Mound Golf Course and caused the highway to be closed for a couple of hours, said Eldridge. In Wolfeboro, two men were injured around 12:15 p.m. on Oakwood Road when a tree fell on them. At the time, the men were trying to clear another tree from the road. The men sustained serious injuries and were transported to Huggins Hospital, said Wolfeboro fire chief Philip Morrill Jr.

WMUR reported Irene injured four people statewide. The other injuries occurred in Bedford and Concord. Madison fared well in the storm, said police chief James Mullen. There were the "usual" issues of trees falling on power lines and roads, but emergency crews worked well together to clear them. Mullen thanked the fire and highway departments for their hard work. "They did a great job," said Mullen. The Carrolll County Sheriff's Office Communications Center fielded 691 calls for service, of which 104 were 9-1-1 calls. The bulk of the calls came between noon and 11 p.m. on Sunday. There were 3,227 radio transmissions, which is 40 percent more than normal. A sheriff's deputy escorted two hikers from Sabbaday Falls and evacuated Canadian tourists from Lower Falls. The sheriff's office helped the U.S. Forest service to close Route 112 and Bear Notch Road. In terms of power outages, southern Carroll County seemed to be particularly hard hit. There were several towns where 100 percent of PSNH customers were affected, according to PSNH's website on Monday afternoon. Those towns were Brookfield, 602 customers, Sandwich, 197 customers, and Wakefield 3,644 customers. In Effingham, about 88 percent of customers were affected. Effingham has a total of 1,255 PSNH customers. In Ossipee, about 45 percent customers lost power. Ossipee has 3,103 PSNH customers. Farther north, in Conway, 26 percent of PSNH customers were affected. PSNH has 6,654 customers in Conway. In Chatham about 14 percent of customers were affected. Chatham has 281 PSNH customers. Statewide, Irene impacted 84,433 PSNH customers, according to PSNH. com on Monday afternoon. At the height of the storm 32,000 New Hampshire Electric Cooperative members were without power. As of Monday morning there were 1,245 affected co-op members in Bartlett and 1,373 members affected in Tuftonboro. By Monday afternoon, there were 5,300 a co-op customers without power statewide. The co-op expects power to be restored to Moultonborough, Ossipee, Sandwich and Tuftonboro by noon on Tuesday. As of Monday afternoon, the sheriff office reported several roads in the county were still closed: Wakefield: multiple areas of Route 109, Canal Road at the state line, Governor's Road, North Shore Road, and Lyford Road is one lane only. Bartlett: Bear Notch Road, Hurricane Mountain Road, Route 302, Cobb Farm Road. Tuftonboro: Cross Neck Road, Evergreen Road, and Boycroft Road.

Irene causes Crawford Notch damage on the anniversary of legendary 1826 Willey Slide BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

HART'S LOCATION — Sunday's tropical rainstorm caused severe damage in Crawford Notch, impacting the pavement on Route 302 at the Sawyer River Bridge and in front of the state's Willey House site. Ironically, Sunday's heavy rain came 185 years to the day of the tragic Willey Slide at the Willey House site on Aug. 28, 1826. In that tragedy, one of the oft-most told tales in White Mountain history, all seven members of the Willey family and the two hired men perished when they evacuated their home but were caught in the slide that was thundering down the mountain toward their small cabin. The home was left standing, untouched by the slide or the rising nearby Saco River. As the on-line encyclopedia Wikipedia notes, news of the Willey tragedy quickly spread across the nation. During the ensuing years, it would become the subject of literature, drawings, local histories, scientific journals and paintings. That timeless combination — tragedy and untamed nature — was a powerful draw for early artists of the White Mountain School of Art, and in years to come, no trip to the White Mountains was complete without a wagon ride up the notch to see the site. David Thurlow told the tale anew a few years back on the Mount Washington Observatory's former “Weather Notebook” radio show: “Samuel Willey, his wife and their five children moved to Crawford Notch in the autumn of 1825,” wrote Thurlow. “The summer of 1826 started out dry. But on August 26, a powerful storm brought torrential rains to the area, enough to raise the nearby Saco River 24 feet. “The area,” continued Thurlow, “had

been prone to mud slides in the past. Each time there was a slide, the Willey family stayed put. Samuel argued it was safer in the house. This time, however, the Willey family, along with two hired men, decided to flee. But instead of running to safety, they fled right into the path of the mudslide. They all died. Ironically, the slide split in two, each half passing on either side of the home and leaving the house intact. Inside, on the table, sat a Bible, open to the 18th Psalm, Samuel Willey's glasses on the page.” According to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Schribman, a weekly contributor to this paper's Saturday editions and executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the story of the Willey family became stuff of myth and legend. It served, for example, as the inspiration for Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story, “Ambitious Guest,” published in 1835. Shribman wrote that the tragedy raised questions about free will and the frailty of one's judgment, and about the cruelty and harshness of nature itself. Motorists given shelter at Notchland Officials believe Route 302 may be closed for three or four weeks. Gov. John Lynch, local selectmen and state highway officials Monday assessed the damage to the two sections of the closed U.S. Route 302 from Sunday's heavy rain in Crawford Notch. Sgt. Brian Abrams of Fish and Game reports that five people are safe but were stranded by Sunday's rain in the notch. They were given accommodations at the Notchland Inn by owners Les Schoof and Ed Butler. They were unable to drive their vehicles east, due to the Sawyer River see next page

Bridge damage, and they could not drive west to Bretton Woods because of the Willey House road damage. Abrams said he was part of a team that included fellow conservation officer Alex Lopashanski from Conway and officers Glen Lucas and Mark Ober from Twin Mountain. State Police and the Bartlett Fire Department also were part of the effort. The stranded drivers were given the option of walking east across the Fourth Iron railroad bridge, according to Abrams, but he said none wanted to abandon their vehicles. “So that was the plan we all came up with — an innkeeper from the inn was there, and he said people could stay at the inn. So that is what they ended up doing,” said Abrams, who said homes in Hart's Location were also notified of the road damage. Among the inn guests who extended their stay a night were newlyweds Sharon and Michael Carley of Union-

ville, Conn. Married at the inn Saturday, they spent their wedding night there — and then were unable to leave after the rain damage to the roadway trapped them Sunday. A voice message on the inn's voicemail features innkeeper Ed Butler saying, “Unfortunately, Hurricane Irene has left us isolated for the next couple of days. We have a washed out a bridge a little south of us and a washed out road a little north of us so we will not be honoring reservations for the next couple of days.” Although the inn is temporarily without Internet and phone service, Butler said the inn can check messages by going a bit south to Bartlett and he said services are expected to be restored soon. “We certainly will be taking reservations for future dates soon as we can,” said Butler, who is a former state representative. To leave a message for the inn, call 374-6131.

CONWAY — Classes begin in SAU 9 on Wednesday, but not everyone may be able to get there on opening day, including teachers, as the repercussions of Tropical Storm Irene continue to linger on. "We're in pretty good shape," Carl Nelson, school superintendent for SAU 9, said, Monday afternoon. "All of the buildings are fine, and in Conway we're in pretty good shape for the roads, but in Bartlett and Jackson that's a different story." Nelson dispatched the bus drivers for Bartlett and Jackson to travel the school routes Monday morning to make sure they were passable. "I think we'll be OK in Jackson," he said. "In Bartlett, River Road is out so we have to figure what we're going to do to pick up students there." Nelson also said there will be issues for students trying to get to Josiah Bartlett Elementary School in Bartlett Village from Hart's Location as a 30-foot-wide stretch of Route 302 at the Sawyer River Bridge was washed away. Officials have said it could take three to four weeks to repair that road. "It's something we'll have to find a way to deal with," Nelson said. Monday also marked the return to the classroom of teachers in preparation for Wednesday's opening. Three teachers at Kennett High School, who live in Bartlett, were unable to get to their classrooms Monday due to road washouts. "I know there was damage, but it could have been a lot worse," Nelson said. "No one got hurt; we were pretty lucky overall."

Attitash, Wildcat sustain storm damage Attitash Mountain Resort in Bartlett and Wildcat Mountain in Pinkham Notch are among the businesses recovering from tropical storm Irene’s heavy rains and wind that flooded many parts of the state Sunday. Efforts were already under way at Attitash Monday morning to clean up significant mud and rock that washed down from the mountain and covered much of the main base lodge area. Less was known at Wildcat Mountain about possible effects of the storm because a major section of Route 16 between Glen and Gorham was closed Monday morning, effectively shut off access to Pinkham Notch. In addition to the heavy washout, Attitash Mountain Resort’s new Mountain Coaster will remain closed until necessary grading around the base area can be completed and structural track supports can be secured again and inspected for opera-

Mold in classrooms to be removed during school vacation weeks BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The Conway School Board plans to address the mold issues at Conway Elementary School this school year. Board member Dick Klement, who also chairs the facilities committee for the board, informed colleagues Monday night that the moldy carpets and asbestos issues at Conway Elementary will be dealt with during the Christmas and February and spring school vacations. He said the plan calls for three classrooms to be done at the Christmas break and two more at the February vacation and the rooms adjacent to the school gym to be done during spring vacation. The balance of the rooms will be done immediately after students are released in June. The district, according to Klement, will negotiate with the low bidder from the previous years to get this work done in limited time-frames. "We should be able to do all of the carpet except where there is asbestos tile," Klement said and explained there is funding within the 2011-12 school budget for the projects. Conway Elementary was scheduled to receive the

$60,000 revolving maintenance fund in April, but those funds were frozen by school superintendent Carl Nelson until the district learned what its financial commitment was to the state retirement system; whether it will receive similar federal and state funding to last year; and if the 2011-12 budget passed on Aug. 16. In April, voters by over a two-to-one margin (1,237 to 568) approved a $100,000 warrant article for school maintenance. When the N.H. Department of Revenue Administration ruled that the Conway school warrant was applicable to the so-called 10 percent cut rule, DRA ruled the last five articles on the school warrant, which included the maintenance article, invalid. DRA also required the school budget be reduced by over $450,000. Thus a hole in the maintenance budget was created. The school district proposed a warrant article for $130,000 for maintenance in 2010, but it was voted down. Jim Hill, director of administrative services for SAU 9, projected it would cost $250,000 to replace carpet at all three elementary schools. "That sort of work can't be done in one year," he said. "We could probably get $90,000 done in a summer. It'll take two years to do all of Pine Tree alone."

Klement and Nelson believe the entire $60,000 in the rotating elementary school budget will be needed to cover the costs of the carpet and tile removal. Klement said the facilities committee has just wrapped up a 15-year master plan and advised the board to start setting funds away for some fairly significant projects in the near future. "The boilers at John Fuller and Conway El. are older than most people in this room," he said, smiling. "They're not going to last forever, folks." Klement also shared disheartening news about lighting for the classrooms. "In 2012," he said, "it's going to become mandatory to replace the T8 lamps (fluorescent fixtures) in the elementary schools. In order to address this, the facilities committee fears the rotating elementary maintenance fund may need to be increased. Klement has been told it will cost between $150 and $200 to replace each of the fixtures. The committee is trying to come up with a plan to half of a school at a time. "If you really want me to make your day," he said with a grin, "in 12 more years we're going to be looking to replace the high school roof. You have to think in longrange terms and we're probably going to be looking at a $2 million price tag for that alone. It's not cheap."

School board restores custodial positions BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Less than seven weeks after voting to cut $56,690 in custodial services in the elementary schools, the Conway School Board voted unanimously to restore a full-time and a part-time position. Board members said they may not have realized the short-term and long-term implications when they made the cut initially. On Monday, the board voted 5-0 (chairman Janine McLauchlan and Randy Davison not present) to hire Keith Babb full-time and Hershel Crouse, from 50 percent to full-time. School superintendent Carl Nelson explained the additional position and half, including health benefits, totaling $56,690, will be covered through an Ed Jobs Grant the district received. The grant, for a one-time, one year expense, is for $139,000. In an effort to trim the budget, which was approved Aug. 16, board members voted to cut $286,739 from its bottom line, and that included $56,690 in elementary custodial services. Klement realized last month the John Fuller School grounds were in need of mowing and the flag was missing in front of the school. He contacted Jim Hill, director of administrative services for SAU 9, to alert him of the problems. "Jim went up and cut the grass himself because there was no one else to do it," he said. "We eliminated the position of the person who had done those things in the past. "Grass may not seem like a big deal, it's only grass, but who's going to be coming in early to shovel all of the snow away from the emergency exists this winter?" Klement continued. "With the custodian gone, whose going to do that now? I think we need to revisit this. I think we're looking at the tip of an iceberg with this decision. I voted for this in a weak-kneed moment." Klement explained that John Fuller was essentially down to half a custodian this summer due to a fulltime custodian there being on medical leave. "We have one custodian working four hours a day at John Fuller," he said. "I don't think that's enough to get all of usual summer things done. Conway Elementary is in a similar position. I think we're going to lose our custodians from a morale factor." No cuts were made to the high school and middle school custodian and maintenance departments. "We committed a sin by not maintaining our buildings and we got caught," Klement said. "I believe the townspeople do not want to see these buildings turn into the old high school."

Man accused in Dittmeyer murder indicted on unrelated felonious sexual assault charge BY ERIK EISELE THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

OSSIPEE — The man accused of murdering 20-year-old Krista Dittmeyer was indicted by a Carroll County grand jury, although not for anything to do with the murder. Anthony Papile, 28, formerly of Ossipee but currently incarcerated in Dover, was indicted last Friday on a charge of felonious sexual assault. The filing alleges he had sex with a 14-year-old. According to the indictment, Papile “knowingly engaged in sexual penetration with B.E., a minor whose date of birth is January 2, 1996.” The crime occurred in Ossipee “on or about December of 2010,” the indictment said. Felonious sexual assault is a class B felony, punishable by up to seven years in prison. The indictment did not say whether B.E. is a boy or a girl or give any details about what happened. The Ossipee Police Department did not return a call looking for more information, and county attorney Tom Dewhurst was unable to say much. "I can't discuss any of the facts of the investigation because the prosecution is pending," Dewhurst said. The indictment was the first time Papile’s name has shown up among paperwork released by the grand jury since he and two other men, Michael Petelis, 28, of Ossipee, and Trevor Ferguson, 23, of Tamworth, were arrested in connection with Dittmeyer’s disappearance and murder. They were arrested in early May, several weeks after Dittmeyer was found dead in a pond at the base of Cranmore Mountain Resort. Papile was charged with seconddegree murder, Petelis and Ferguson with conspiracy to commit robbery. see PAPILE page 18

Band instruments, football trophies stolen at Kennett High BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Classrooms and offices at Kennett High School were broken into by two young males on the heels of Tropical Storm Irene early Monday morning. The suspects fled the scene with band instruments and school tro-

phies, including from championship football seasons. “An employee of the high school discovered two young males in the building,” Det. Sgt. Alan Broyer, of Conway Police Department, stated in a press release Monday afternoon. “The suspects fled the school and left in an SUV-type vehicle.”

Classes are scheduled to begin this Wednesday in the Conway School District. “The investigation of the burglary indicates that the suspects entered the school through a rear window,” the police release stated. “Once inside the suspects gathered property to take with them Some of the

items gathered by the suspects were drums, band instruments and trophies from the trophy cabinet.” According to the release, some classrooms and offices were entered and items stolen as well. The suspects were also in the act of vandalizing the school when the school employee discov-

ered them, according to Broyer. “The security camera system did capture images of the suspects, and school personnel will be supplying investigators with video footage,” the police release continued.” Anyone with information is asked to contact the police at 356-5715.

PAPILE from page 17

According to court documents, Papile and Petelis concocted a plan to steal drugs and money from Dittmeyer, luring her to a house in Ossipee. There Papile allegedly hit her over the head with a rubber club, according to prosecutors, and then used her car to take her to Cranmore, where he allegedly dumped her into the pond. Prosecutors say Ferguson then picked him up and gave him a ride back to Petelis’ house in Ossipee. When police found her car the next day it was running with her 14-month-old daughter inside, unharmed. Police searched for her for several days with hopes they might find her alive. The case drew national attention, and when Dittmeyer’s body was found there were multiple satellite trucks packed into Cranmore’s parking lot. Papile, Petelis and Ferguson were arrested several weeks later, in early May. Both Papile and Petelis

have long criminal histories, but this was Ferguson's first run-in with police. Since their initial court appearance, Papile’s and Petelis’ probable cause hearings have repeatedly been delayed through mutual agreements between prosecutors and the defense. Ferguson has had several hearings, but the orders were sealed. The attorney general’s office, which has been handling the case, has been guarded with information since taking over the case from the Conway Police Department. In addition to keeping autopsy results and Dittmeyer’s cause of death a secret, the attorney general's office has not said when it intends to bring formal charges against the accused men or whether it will pursue charges against all three. There have been a number of opportunities for prosecutors to ask a grand jury to formally charge the three, but as of yet happened that has still not happened. All three are still in jail.

Power restored to thousands in NH as flood waters recede BY TED SIEFER UNION LEADER

Emergency management officials say crews are making steady progress in restoring power and clearing and fixing roads in the wake of the tropical storm Irene. “The sun’s out and we didn’t have any fatalities, and while we have damage, it’s not anything of the magnitude that North Carolina and Virginia had,” said Jim Van Dongen, spokesman for the New Hampshire Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. There are approximately 116,000 homes statewide without power, down from a peak of 160,000. Unitil has restored power to 21,000 customers and hopes to have most of the remaining 6,000 homes on line by the end of the day Monday. Public Service of New Hampshire is aiming to reduce the outage number among its customers to 50,000 by the end of the day, and to have the remainder of customers on line within the next few days. Van Dongen said there may be some scattered areas where power could be out through the week. “It’s definitely labor-intensive work to put the lines back up,” he said. As of this morning, there were

closings on 210 municipals roads and 49 state roads, including the Kancamangus, stretches of which were washed out. Van Dongen said crews are working as fast as possible to have the popular tourist road ready for the Labor Day weekend. Other problem spots include Route 9 in Barrington and Route 12A in Lebanon. In addition, many local roads in the North Country remain impassable. Water levels are receding statewide, with the exception of the Connecticut River in the Walpole and Hillsdale areas. Crews are working to clean up flooding in Plymouth, one of several locations where the Pemigewasset River overflowed its banks. As of Monday morning, there were approximately 200 people in 23 shelters around the state. Van Dongen said he expects this number to go down as people are able to return to their homes or stay with relatives. As the clean-up continues, Van Dongen stressed that residents be careful, particularly around downed power lines and in removing trees and branches with chainsaws. “You really can’t tell when a tree is damaged which way it will fall. It’s best to get a professional to do that kind of work,” he said.

Repairs on Kancamagus Highway could take weeks LINCOLN — Heavy rain from Tropical Storm Irene on Sunday sent the Pemigewasset River out of its banks in Lincoln, tearing up a heavily traveled thoroughfare and damaging other roads. Transportation officials said that the Kancamagus Highway could take three to four weeks to repair after the river took a large chunk out of it in Lincoln. “The streams nearest to the road channelized up against the white line, the fog line, and undermined good portions of the road, and in some cases, almost the entire road,” said John Paul

Hilliard of the Department of Transportation. One lane of the road is gone, leaving a 30-foot drop into the river below. Protective barriers were also swept away. “There’s nothing to prevent vehicles or people from getting too close to the edge, and rivers are still very high and we don’t want to see anyone swept away,” Hilliard said. On Monday, large boulders could be seen in the river that were swept away from a 20-foot wall built along the river’s bank. The wall was intended to help keep the water off the land. (Courtesy WMUR)

Tai Chi Society to celebrate 20th anniversary Sept. 10 CONWAY — The New England branch of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA will hold a celebration of its 20th anniversary on Saturday, Sept. 10. at John Fuller School. The event, which begins at 11:30 a.m., is open to the public and will feature performances by Dance Revelasian, Boston’s premier Chinese Dance Group, as well as demonstrations of tai chi and other internal arts of health taught by the society. Other attendees will include organization officials: Jane Edwards, president of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of the USA, and Virginia Amos, a member of the USA board of directors. “Forty-one years ago, Master Moy Lin-Shin, Taoist monk from China began teaching tai chi in a park in Canada. Today, the International Taoist Tai Chi Society is a global volunteer organization with member associations in more than 25 countries around the world, ” said the New England branch’s president, Donna Stuart. “Locally we actually started offering classes more than two decades ago, but 20 years ago the membership in North Conway had grown so that we were able to rent a full-time space at the Eastern Slope Inn Plaza, where we still offer classes today.” The branch has continued to grow, and now has centers in Bridgton, Maine and Exeter; and it also offers classes in Tamworth and Purity Spring/East Madison; Brownfield, Westbrook and Blue Hill, Maine; and in the greater Lowell area of Massachusetts, in Westford, Acton, Lunenburg, Lowell and North Andover. All of the society’s activities and instructional programs are offered on a membership basis.

“We have members of all ages and physical abilities who participate in our classes. Practiced diligently, this form of tai chi cultivates both body and mind to restore and/or maintain good health,” Stuart said. “Attendees at the celebration will have the chance not only to see demonstrations of tai chi and other arts of health that the society teaches; they’ll have the opportunity to hear how this form of tai chi has helped members improve their health and well-being.” Stuart says the foundation of the society is compassion. “Our underlying charitable orientation is in keeping with the Taoist values of selflessness and service to others. All instructors are volunteers and are not paid for teaching; they each must attend regular training workshops at their own expense and meet annual re-accreditation requirements. Because as you practice this form of tai chi — and as you age — your body changes, it’s critical that those instructing receive ongoing training to broaden their knowledge, understanding and their own proficiency. This ensures that everyone receives the same quality of instruction and dedicated leadership.” That’s why before and after the anniversary celebration, branch members will be participating in a workshop taught by one of the most experienced instructors in the United States. It’s anticipated that every one of the New England branch instructors will be at the workshop. For more information about the celebration or about classes, call (603) 356-5581. Or visit newengland.usa. or the Taoist Tai Chi Society USA — New England page on Facebook.

Tin Mountain stonewall building workshop Sept. 11 ALBANY — In 1880 Roland Robertson wrote about New England fences, “Of all the fences, the most enduring and satisfying to the eye is the stonewall. If its foundation be well laid, it may last as long as the world.” Held together by the forces of gravity and friction, New England stonewalls have passed the test of time. Learn the craft of dry stone walling with Master Craftsman, Chris Tanguay at the Tin Mountain Stonewall Building Workshop on Saturday, Sept. 10 and /or Sunday Sept. 11 from 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. Tanguay is committed to constructing quality hardscapes to age old standards upheld by the Dry Stone Walling Association of Great Britain.

Well you have the chance to get involved in another to be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, in the Hockmeyer’s barn. "Murder at the Four Deuces," taking place during the roaring twenties and prohibition, will be needing lots of willing participants to be in the cast.

If you haven’t been to the Kripalu yoga class held at the town hall, now would be the time to put that into your schedule. A Kripalu yoga class begins with a centering and breath awareness, followed with gentle warmup movements. The heart of the class is a sequence of postures that stretch, strengthen, and balance your body. Each class ends with a period of deep relaxation; creating a sense of peace and serenity. A yoga practice allows people to be present, to slow down, and to integrate their body, mind and spirit; helping one to feel more vibrant, agile and connected. Please note the upcoming schedule changes. The Sept. 5 class will be canceled due to the Labor Day holiday. Starting on Monday, Sept. 12, classes will run

By Holiday Mathis outdo every gift. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Take a break from trying to improve yourself. What you need more than anything is rest. Also, self-acceptance will carry your efforts much further than constant internal criticism. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have interesting and useful talents now. You will be able to control your emotions, curb your cravings and fit into whatever social situation you happen to come across. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Political and moral agendas may be at odds now. Someone needs your agreement in order to move forward. However, you may not be able to give this approval in good conscience. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You won’t care whether or not you are the most amazing player on the scene. You just want to get into the game and have some fun. Because of this stellar attitude, you’ll do well. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). One of the most formidable obstacles you will encounter in the managing of your mood is the emotional tone of others. Bad attitudes and crummy moods are catching. Think ahead about how you’ll protect yourself. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 30). You want to see different parts of the world and be able to communicate fluently there. You’ll learn a “new language” -- though it may still be in your native tongue. Finances improve in September. Enjoyable work makes lifestyle upgrades possible. November brings family additions. January puts an old battle to rest. Pisces and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 14, 31, 29 and 36.

Get Fuzzy

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll get the idea that break time is over. Crack down on self-discipline. The more leeway you give yourself the further away from your goals you will stray. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Avoid making assumptions about another person -- you’re not likely to assume the right thing. Instead, ask questions, even if it means you risk looking foolish. It is more endearing to be foolish than to be ignorant or wrong. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You see the light at the end of the tunnel, and you keep going toward it because you know it’s the right way. Still, there’s no reason not to enjoy your time and travels during this contained part of your journey. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everything you own needs maintenance and management. You’ll decide whether or not the time you put into keeping a certain possession clean and orderly is really worth the value of the thing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Human behavior can be somewhat of a puzzle. You’re willing to experiment, turning the pieces and trying different arrangements until something clicks. You’ll come up with a brilliant solution by day’s end. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want your loved ones to be entertained in the way they find most delightful. You’ll observe what makes them laugh and note what holds their attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t be so worried about giving just as much as the other person gives. It may, in fact, be a bad idea to balance the scales. Someone wants to be the bigger giver and will be disappointed if you try to

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Tuesday, August 30, 2011— Page 25

Today is Tuesday, Aug. 30, the 242nd day of 2011. There are 123 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 30, 1861, Union Gen. John C. Fremont instituted martial law in Missouri and declared slaves there to be free. (However, Fremont’s emancipation order was countermanded by President Abraham Lincoln). On this date: In 1797, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, creator of “Frankenstein,” was born in London. In 1862, Union forces were defeated by the Confederates at the Second Battle of Bull Run in Manassas, Va. In 1905, Ty Cobb made his major-league debut as a player for the Detroit Tigers, hitting a double in his first at-bat in a game against the New York Highlanders. (The Tigers won, 5-3.) In 1963, the “Hot Line” communications link between Washington and Moscow went into operation. In 1967, the Senate confirmed the appointment of Thurgood Marshall as the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1983, Guion S. Bluford Jr. became the first black American astronaut to travel in space as he blasted off aboard the Challenger. In 1986, Soviet authorities arrested Nicholas Daniloff, a correspondent for U.S. News and World Report, as a spy a week after American officials arrested Gennadiy Zakharov, a Soviet employee of the United Nations, on espionage charges in New York. (Both men were later released.) In 1997, Americans received word of the car crash in Paris that claimed the lives of Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed and their driver, Henri Paul. (Because of the time difference, it was Aug. 31 where the crash occurred.) One year ago: An enormous drill began preliminary work on carving a half-mile chimney through solid rock to free 33 men trapped in a Chilean mine. Today’s Birthdays: Country singer Kitty Wells is 92. Opera singer Regina Resnik is 89. Actor Bill Daily is 84. Actress Elizabeth Ashley is 72. Actor Ben Jones is 70. Cartoonist R. Crumb is 68. Olympic gold medal skier Jean-Claude Killy is 68. Actress Peggy Lipton is 64. Comedian Lewis Black is 63. Actor Timothy Bottoms is 60. Actor David Paymer is 57. Jazz musician Gerald Albright is 54. Actor Michael Chiklis is 48. Music producer Robert Clivilles is 47. Actress Michael Michele is 45. Country musician Geoff Firebaugh is 43. Country singer Sherrie Austin is 40. Rock singer-musician Lars Frederiksen (Rancid) is 40. Actress Cameron Diaz is 39. Rock musician Leon Caffrey (Space) is 38. TV personality Lisa Ling is 38. Rock singermusician Aaron Barrett (Reel Big Fish) is 37. Actor Michael Gladis is 34. Rock musician Matt Taul (Tantric; Days of the New) is 33. Tennis player Andy Roddick is 29.

DEAR ABBY: “Insulted in Ohio” (July 9) was offended because she’s being asked at bridal and baby showers to address a blank envelope so the honoree can send her a thankyou note. Good heavens, lady, calm down. At a shower, you are celebrating a milestone event in a young woman’s life. Your gift will help her during the next phase of her life. These joyous events can be stressful and require a lot of preparation. I’m sure the hostess’s intent in asking guests to perform this minor task is to ease the honoree’s responsibilities. It also ensures the addresses appear correctly on the envelopes and everyone is accounted for on the gift list. Is that really so “insulting”? “Ohio,” if you feel so imposed-upon being asked do do such a simple thing, may I offer a suggestion? Gift the honoree with your “regrets” and leave your judgmental attitude at home. (I’ll bet you count the days until you’re thanked, too.) -- GAIL IN NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS DEAR GAIL: Thank-you notes are a hot-button issue with my readers, and frankly, I am surprised more of you didn’t stick up for “Insulted.” However, I stand firm in my conviction that the more personal the thank-you note (including the envelope), the better. My newspaper readers comment: DEAR ABBY: With the advent of email, social networking and online invitation sites, mailing addresses are used less often. I’d be hard-pressed to find the street addresses of some of my closest friends and relatives. As part of the younger generation, I’m more comfortable with email. If I were hosting one of these events, I’d have to kindly ask guests to write down their addresses for me to use later for thank-yous. And because it’s being done on paper, it might as well be on the envelopes -- a practical, time-saving solution. -- JENNY IN QUEBEC, CANADA DEAR ABBY: I’m also from Ohio, and I was insulted, too.

It appalled me being asked to address my own future thankyou envelope. And would you like to know the kicker? I never received the envelope or a thank-you after the shower. -- CARLA T. DEAR ABBY: While the practice does seem a little over the top, there are creative alternatives. At a baby shower, my sisters gave everyone index cards and asked them to write down their name and address and guess the baby’s birth weight and length. The guest who came closest would be mailed a prize. It was a way to ensure I had everyone’s address for thank-you cards. At bridal showers, a blank address book can be passed around for guests to write their contact information. The book is then presented to the bride for her new home. -- MELANIE IN THE MIDWEST DEAR ABBY: To save a busy bride or mother-to-be time and effort, addressing my envelope is another “gift” I can give her. All the envelopes could then be placed in a basket, with one being drawn for the “door prize.” -- LYNN IN DULUTH, MINN. DEAR ABBY: “Insulted” could take one of her return address stickers with her to the shower and place it on the envelope provided. It’s less work. This new party ritual is not the result of poor manners, but a logical change for changing times. -- NOT A WHINER DOWN SOUTH DEAR ABBY: The personal message the gift recipient writes on the card is more important than who might have addressed the envelope it came in. -- ARLENE IN NEW YORK DEAR ABBY: Because each of my guests addressed her envelope, I finished all my thank-yous in the week after the shower and sent them out promptly. People should not complain about the punctuality of thank-yous if they refuse an opportunity to ensure they receive them in a timely manner. -- CARRIE IN ST. LOUIS

Mountaineers stave off two hurricanes: Irene and Lawrence, Mass., win regular-season opener, 27-6 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– SPORTS –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

BY THOM POLLARD The Mount Washington Valley Mountaineers Football program won its 2011 season-opener with Hurricane Irene nipping at its heels versus the Lawrence Massachusetts Hurricanes in Pelham, 27-6 on Sunday. The offensive line played flawlessly, allowing no sacks and clearing the way for the ball to move seamlessly throughout the game. MWV’s defense punished the Hurricanes from start to finish, forcing five turnovers and allowing only one touchdown. Co-captain running back Devan Bynoe, of North Conway, returning for his second year on the Mountaineers, was unstoppable. He ran for well over 100 yards and two touchdowns, mystifying the Hurricanes every time he took the ball. Solid blocking created big holes for the run. On the first possession of the game MWV drove 85-yards for a TD on runs by co-captain Nick Armstrong, of Fryeburg, and Bynoe, who scored the first points of 2011. Kherry Rober, of Bartlett, added two points with a successful kick through the uprights. Bynoe added a second touchdown on a dramatic 55-yard blast from the line of scrimmage, just after the Mountaineers forced a Hurricanes turnover. Later in the first half co-captain quarterback Will Pollard, of Bartlett, tossed a 35-yard bullseye over the shoulders and into the arms of wide receiver Rober, who burned the defense on a streak, then sprinted in for a touchdown. MWV’s final touchdown came late in the second half on a 30-yard end-around keeper by QB Pollard. Moments later Pollard also ran in the point after attempt, making the score 27-6. It would stay that way until time ran out. Consistent pressure and a high level of intensity by the Mountaineers took its toll on the Hurricanes. Bowen Wales, of North Conway, taking a hand-off up the right side during the fourth quarter, was tackled hard by two Hurricanes defenders. The three went down in a mangle, but Wales got up and ran back to the huddle. The Hurricanes defenders lay there for a minute, not moving until helped up by teammates. Co-captains Garrett Brown, of Conway, Armstrong (fumble recovery) and Ryan Stevens, of Bartlett, (fumble recovery) helped set the tone on both offense and defense. On D, all three made multiple tackles and assists, as did Bynoe and Pollard. Kyle Bennett, of Fryeburg, was a standout on

defense with two fumble recoveries and a couple of pad cracking tackles that could be felt from the sidelines. Notable tackles and hits were also made by veterans Dominic Knox, of Conway, and Wales. This was the first football game ever for Kennett freshman Ben Kelly and Dante Aquino, of Bartlett, and George Hoffman and Garrett Furnbach, of Freedom. All of them had an impact on the game, with Aquino making a touchdown-saving open field tackle in the first half. The Mountaineers squad is rounded out with first season players Chris Chase, Nick Badger and Brian Dodd, all of North Conway, and Ricky White, of Conway. The MWV Mountaineers compete in the open weight, 11-14 year old Patriot Division of the

New Hampshire Pop Warner League. Head coach and offensive coordinator is Andy Pepin, of North Conway. Tony Day, of North Conway, is defensive coordinator. Sal DiSanza, of North Conway, is special teams coach. The staff is filled out by Brian Sponseller, MD, of Conway; former Kennett Eagles standout John Sutton, of North Conway; Martin Furnbach, also a Kennett Eagle from Freedom; Thom Pollard and Mark Sandman, both of Bartlett while Heather Stevens, of North Conway, is the team’s trainer. The Mountaineers next game will take place at Kennett High School’s Millen Stadium on Sept. 11 at 1 p.m. For more information, please visit
