as the NAVSEA military deputy for Shipyard Operations. He was commissioned as an ensign through the University of Florida Navy ROTC in 1988, and has served in a variety of engineering and combat systems billets, including being the project officer at both Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS&IMF) and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility for engineered refueling overhaul and depot modernization periods. Greene also has served at PSNS&IMF as the production resources officer and operations officer. Greene received a Bachelor of Science in nuclear engineering and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Florida.

Wells Reserve Training Coordinator Receives National Honor WELLS – Dr. Christine B. Feurt, coordinator of the Coastal Training Program at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), was presented with the 2012 NERR System and NERR Association Award at the annual NERRS/NERRA meeting held in West Virginia in November. The award is given annually to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the reserve system. “Chris is most deserving of this national honor,” said reserve director Paul Dest. “By designing and developing a highly effective Coastal Training Program, she has made the Wells Reserve relevant to the coastal management community both in the State of Maine and around the nation. She is a highly respected educator and scientist who effectively conveys science to decision-makers, be they elected officials, regulators, land conservationists, or policy-makers. We are proud to have her as part of the reserve staff.” In her work, Feurt operates at the intersection of the natural and social sciences. She helps create collaborative knowledge networks involving

Martin Lodish, KBIA’s executive director, said he is “beyond excited, as well as grateful to all who will make this a reality for the greater community.” Donations from lemonade sales and memorial contributions, to matching grants and estate giving, made the difference in meeting the lofty goal of $105,000 to sufficiently fund this project. The real fun will begin next spring. Once KBIA clears the aged structures from the property, leaders will be asking for volunteers to help install the equipment. They need only have a willingness to pitch in and follow instructions from a Dibble Parks professional who will lead volunteer teams between June 7 and June 9.

BUSINESS & FINANCE SIS Gives Back During the Holiday Season SANFORD – This year, in lieu of small holiday gifts to customers to share the sentiments of the holiday season, Sanford Institution for Savings decided to do something to benefit the community on behalf of their loyal customers. SIS made a $1,000 donation to the York County Shelter Programs and also made a $250 donation to the Seacoast Family Food Pantry of New Hampshire in Portsmouth where the bank’s newest branch is scheduled to open in January 2013. The York County Shelter Programs began in 1987, and the main campus is located in Alfred. Off-campus, there are 22 additional houses run by the programs that offer shelter for homeless individuals and families. With a mission to end homelessness and help people achieve their full-
est potential through housing, personal growth opportunities and community resources, the York County Shelter Programs is a vital resource for the local region and beyond. This donation is made directly to the Food Pantry. Although the Seacoast Family Food Pantry of New Hampshire is located in Portsmouth, it serves the entire Seacoast area including Greenland, Hampton, Hampton Falls, New Castle, Newington, North Hampton, Portsmouth, Rye, Seabrook and Stratham, as well as Kittery, Maine. Their mission is to help fulfill the needs of low-income families and individuals with food, education for healthy living, and personal care products. Originally organized in 1816 as the Ladies Humane Society, the Seacoast Family Food Pantry
is essential for those in the area struggling with hunger. The check was presented to the Seacoast Family Food Pantry on December 11, and the check for the York County Shelter Programs was presented on December 19. “We at SIS felt it was important this holiday season to reach out to the organizations in our region that make such an important difference in the lives of the people in our community,” said Mark Mickeriz, president and CEO of SIS. “Not only during this time of year, but year-round, these organizations constantly strive to help our friends and neighbors who are in need, and we wanted to honor our loyal customers by making this donation on their behalf.” (courtesy photo)

businesses. Maurice Dube, Maine district director of the Small Business Administration, made the announcement recently at a gathering of small business owners held at Qualey Granite & Quartz in Veazie. “Maine’s small businesses are the key to the state’s economic well-being, and the SBA works hard to provide many types of support,” said Dube. “Having access to affordable loans is essential to get businesses off the ground or help them expand. I’m here to congratulate Bangor Savings Bank for their outstanding role in keeping Maine’s small business community thriving, and to salute the many small businesses throughout the state who hire people and produce quality products. This is the backbone of our economy.” In the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2012, Maine banks provided 321 loans totaling $72.3 million to small businesses statewide. The SBA’s definition of a small business is one employing less than 500 workers. According to 2008 data, there are 147,484 small businesses in Maine, accounting for 59.7% of private-sector jobs in the state. In the past four years, Bangor Savings Bank has pumped over $2 billion in new loans into the Maine economy, including over $1 billion See LENDER page 7...

Research Shows Later Retirement for Men According to the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College University, men are now retiring later than they have in the past. In an analysis of data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau, the Center for Retirement Research found that the average retirement age
for men has risen from 62 in the mid-1990s to 64 near the end of the first decade of the 21st century. The reasons for this change are likely not because men are reluctant to leave office life behind, but because of a variety of factors that have to do with finances. Many companies no longer offer
...LENDER from page 6 in new business loans. Bangor Savings Bank was also awarded the highest possible rating of “Outstanding” in its three most recent Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) examinations and Public Performance Evaluations. The evaluation, conducted by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, characterized the bank as a “leader” in all three community development performance areas: the Lending Test, the Investment Test and the Service Test. During the most recent three-year CRA assessment period, the bank originated more than $900 million in residential mortgage loans, $450 million in CRA qualified small business loans, $150 million in CRA qualified community development loans, and $20 million in CRA qualified investments and grants in Maine. One of the small businesses benefiting from SBA financing is Qualey Granite & Quartz, a full-service countertop and flooring business owned by Matt and Laurie Qualey. “Our business has grown significantly over the past three years because we’ve been able to access SBA funds,” said Matt Qualey. “In 2009 we moved into a much larger facility and expanded our shop to include a showroom with full-design services and a warehouse for one of the largest natural stone inventories in the state.
We’ve also added jobs, and now employ 15 people to keep up with demand.” Jim Conlon, Bangor Saving Bank’s president & CEO, spoke during the small business celebration. “As Maine’s largest independent bank, we know how important small businesses are to the state’s economy. Bangor Savings Bank has made an effort to continue to lend money to businesses, even in the face of a slowly growing economy.” Conlon introduced a number of small business owners at the event and remarked, “It’s gratifying to be here with so many successful small businesses and see the very real results of our partnerships.” Kurt and Kathy Cressey, owners of Pack Baskets of Maine, displayed their unique backpack-like baskets that are hand woven using wooden strips. Their sturdiness makes them especially well-suited for carrying outdoor gear. The couple bought an existing basket company in 1998, and after years of operating as a side business, made the transition into full-time basket making. “Last year, with the help of Bangor Savings Bank and an SBA loan, we took our basket business to the next level. We’re now in a larger facility that will enable us to build inventory to fill large orders – something we couldn’t do in our previous location. Pack Baskets of Maine is poised for growth thanks to Bangor Savings Bank and the SBA,” said Kurt Cressey.

pension plans, so men are more likely to work longer to save more money for their retirement. In addition, Social Security benefits in the U.S. are now calculated differently than they were in the past, so men have a greater incentive to work longer. But finances aren’t the only reason men work longer. Many men now have jobs that are not physically taxing, enabling them to work longer as a result. This article was provided by MetroCreative.

PAL Program Adds Middle-School Childcare & First-Ever Website
YORK – York’s “Parent’s Alternative to Latchkey,” or PAL Program, which provides activities-based childcare before and after school to younger students of York Public Schools, has announced
the launch of its first-ever website at palprogramyork.com. The new site comes on the heels of program expansion to support local families with middle-school-aged children. The PAL Program selected Yorkbased web design firm Shoofly

allows us to further increase our visibility in the community, while being able to provide easy access to items like our monthly calendar, with real-time schedule updates, and our program application,” said PAL director Carolyn Roe. Cherie Herne, owner/design director for Shoofly Creative and founder of York’s former Herne School, has had firsthand experience with the success of the PAL Program as a working mom. “I would show up at 5 p.m. to pick up my son Joseph from PAL, and he would beg me to go have coffee and come back later to get him! He really loved the PAL Program, which always put my mind at ease. At PAL, Joseph was truly stimulated with a big variety of activities and positive socialization. So I am delighted at the opportunity, years later, to act as a brand missionary for PAL by building their website, and ultimately, PAL’s presence throughout York.” The PAL Program is a tuition-based program that offers childcare before and after school hours to elementary school students, and afterschool care for middle-schoolers, at York Village Elementary School. Incomebased tuition assistance is available anonymously to qualifying families. PAL’s Board of Directors serves on a volunteer basis, and the organization relies on annual fundraisers to defray the cost of its programming.

~ News ~ New Book Rewrites Boon Island History By Timothy Gillis Staff Columnist PORTSMOUTH, NH â€“ Portsmouth writer Stephen Erickson has teamed up with Andrew Vietze, former managing editor of Down East, to craft a â€œmaritime whodunitâ€? called â€œBoon Island: A True Story of Mutiny, Shipwreck, and Cannibalism.â€? The historical narrative is richly researched and combines primary documents with a modern scientific understanding of what the crew of the Nottingham Galley went through for nearly a month, shipwrecked six miles off the coast of York. Erickson had a manuscript in book-length form when he was approached by Vietze about working together. Vietze had written an article about the shipwreck and had a contract with Globe Pequot Press to expand it into a book. Both authors say their meeting was fortuitous and made for a better result. â€œHe was in the audience at a talk and approached me after,â€? Erickson said. â€œI think we both agree we wrote a better book together than we would have done ourselves.â€? Perhaps the most shocking revelation in the book deals with Captain John Deane, his brother Jasper, and another gentleman
aboard the ship, Miles Whitworth. Capt. Deaneâ€™s own account of the shipwreck casts himself and his fellow gentlemen as heroic, but the new book goes a long way to discredit that claim. The result may cause a stir with fans of Kenneth Roberts, whose own version of the events align with the Captainâ€™s. â€œThere may be a little bit of controversy since its goes against the tradition,â€? Erickson said. â€œIâ€™ve read much of Kenneth Robertsâ€™ work, â€˜Boon Islandâ€™ among them.
He was famous for his historical veracity, and much of what he said is true, in terms of the details of what happened, when it wrecked, etc. but obviously he cast the crewmen in a bad light.â€? This new version offers startling evidence that the Captain was far from the hero he claimed to be, and may well have been criminally responsible for the shipwreck. Vietze said he was happy to discover a fellow writer, looking
into retelling the tale. â€œI was doing research and came across Stephenâ€™s piece in New England Quarterly,â€? Vietze said. â€œI went to see him speak at a York Historical Society function. I didnâ€™t think the world needed two more histories of Boon Island. So, rather than try to scuttle each otherâ€™s ships, so to speak, we decided
and the Mitchell family wish you a happy, healthy and safe New Year!
it would better serve the story if we collaborated.â€? With his editing experience at Down East magazine, he was more responsible for style and content, while Erickson was more responsible for content. They described the writing relationship as See BOON page 24...

Local Students Get to Horse Around WELLS – Through the generosity of Atria Kennebunk and Amber Wilson, activity director, children from Wells Elementary School had the opportunity to meet Blixx horses, Lexxie and Fritz. Many children never have the opportunity to be so close to a horse and appreciate their gentle nature. The kids were able to interact and see how good treatment results in good behavior.
New Therapeutic Laser Treatments Offered Locally KITTERY – Dr. Jeff Donatello announced the addition of the first K-Laser Class IV therapeutic laser on the Seacoast. “We are very excited to offer these treatments to our patients,” said Donatello. “Lasers have been used in Europe for dozens of years, but are relatively new here in the US. The K-Laser is an effective treatment for many conditions, including feet, knees and shoulders.” The K-Laser is
We’ve changed to offer you more affordable care! York Hospital in Wells Emergency & Walk-in Care is now Myhealth@Wells Walk-in Care! Last summer, York Hospital in Wells piloted a new, lower cost, high care walk-in center. It ran alongside the Emergency Care center at York Hospital in Wells and was well received by residents and visitors alike. Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback we received, and our need to make care more affordable for our patients, we are now pleased to offer one, dynamic walk-in care service at York Hospital in Wells. York Hospital in Wells is now Myhealth@ Wells Walk-in Care. York Hospital’s “Myhealth” care concept (which is also available at York Hospital in Kittery) offers quick, compassionate, and convenient walk-in care staffed by nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses. At Myhealth@Wells, services are available 7 days a week, 8am-6pm, and centered on providing immediate care for minor illnesses and injuries, as well as health prevention services. This change means we no longer provide the higher cost emergency level services at York Hospital in Wells. However, our specialty-trained emergency physicians and nurses are available to meet any need at the Emergency Care Center at York Hospital, which is open 24 hours a day. This change also allows us to provide the health care services our patients in the Wells area have told us they want - walk-in care at a more affordable price.
Offering you the care you want at a price you can afford. At Myhealth@Wells, care starts at just $65 per visit - with most insurances accepted!
a product of K-LaserUSA, the leading company in Class IV laser therapy. The K-Laser is being used by numerous health care providers and professional sports teams throughout the US and the world. “We can help many more people than we could before. The K-Laser is absolutely the best thing to ever happen to our office. It is very exciting to help people get the results they want, and with virtually no side effects,” Donatello said. Many therapeutic lasers being used to this point were Class IIIa or IIIb, since their power output was under 500 milliwatts. The K-Laser Class IV Therapeutic Laser delivers up to 12,000 milliwatts of therapeutic laser energy. It is the only Class IV therapy laser with wavelength selectability, intense superpulse, and multiple therapy presets. The higher power of Class IV therapy lasers delivers a therapeutic dosage of laser energy to a larger volume of tissue, thus producing more immediate, significant results, according to a press release. Laser therapy works by stimulating production of cellular energy in damaged cells and by enhancing the cell membrane permeability. This promotes the speed and the quality of healing, enhances the exchange of nutrients and wastes across the cell membrane and improves elasticity of injured tissues. Laser therapy also modulates pain and reduces inflammation. It can be used immediately on acute injuries, over broken skin and over metal implants. Laser therapy enhances the rate and quality of healing of acute injuries, and can help with the resolution of chronic complaints such as arthritis. “The K-Laser is being used in the very best health care clinics across the country, and by several professional sports teams, such as the New York Yankees. We are very pleased to offer the latest laser therapy technology to our patients with the K-Laser,” said Donatello.

Senior Living Center Chorus Delivers Holiday Concert KENNEBUNK – Atria Kennebunk’s resident chorus group, “Atria Sings,” performed a holiday concert for the employees and their families. Each song had a special prop to go along with it such as baseball caps for, “Take me out to the Ball Game” and bright yellow smiley-face balloons that rose from the backs of the residents chairs during the hit song, “When You’re Smiling.” Atria resident ambassador Hilda Thornhill said “the chorus group has 15 members and grows in popularity at each weekly rehearsal.

PORTLAND – As part of an ongoing partnership, Unitil Corporation, a provider of natural gas and electricity to customers in New England, and the American Red Cross of Maine are advising Mainers to prepare for severe storms and cold weather this winter with helpful safety tips. “It’s winter. It’s Maine. We know storms are coming and we’ve seen their effects. Preparation and planning goes an awful long way in giving your family the best chance to successfully weather the storm,” said Patricia Murtagh, CEO of the American Red Cross of Maine. “Know that you are not alone; your Red Cross and Unitil have tools to help you prepare.” “Winter storms in New England can bring strong winds, heavy snow and ice that can potentially cause power outages,” Alec O’Meara, Unitil media relations manager said. “If outages occur, local utilities will work quickly and efficiently to restore power, but it is important for all households and businesses to remain ‘Red Cross Ready’ throughout the winter months.” The American Red Cross and Unitil encourage Mainers to prepare for severe weather this winter by taking the following precautions: • Winterize your vehicle and keep the gas tank full.

SCARBOROUGH – A new research study in the Journal of the American Heart Association reveals that cardiovascular health varies greatly depending on what state they reside in. The study is the first to examine cardiovascular health at the state level. ...TIPS from page 12 tank will keep the fuel line from freezing. • Insulate your home by installing storm windows or covering windows with plastic from the inside to keep cold air out. • Maintain heating equipment and chimneys by having them cleaned and inspected every year. • If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F. • Avoid driving when conditions include sleet, freezing rain or drizzle, snow, or dense fog. If travel is necessary, keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle. • Before tackling strenuous tasks in cold temperatures, consider your physical condition, the weather factors, and the nature of the task. • Help people who require special assistance such as elderly people living alone, people with disabilities, and children. • Never use a generator, grill, camp stove, or other gasoline, propane, natural gas or charcoal-burning devices inside a home, garage, basement, crawlspace, or any partially enclosed area. Locate unit away from doors, windows, and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to come indoors. In advance of severe winter weather, local residents should prepare by checking and making an inventory of the following items: flashlights and fresh batteries; a batteryoperated radio and clock; bottled water, canned foods, and a manual can opener; a list of important phone numbers and a car charger for cell phones if applicable; and a first aid kit. Additional winter storm safety information is available at www.maineredcross.org. Outage updates for customers and information on how Unitil restores power are available at www.unitil.com.
In Maine, 4.5 percent of the population reported having ideal cardiovascular health; poor cardiovascular health was 7.8 percent. Researchers also found about 3 percent of the total U.S. population reported having ideal heart health. In general, people living in western and New England states reported having a higher percentage of ideal cardiovascular health. Those reporting ideal cardiovascular health was lowest in Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Mississippi and highest in Washington, D.C., Vermont and Virginia.

THE WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM THAT FLAT OUT WORKS MAKE 2013 THE YEAR THAT YOU FINALLY LOSE THE WEIGHT!
The number of people who have lost weight and changed their lives on our program last year was staggering. But don’t listen to me – Listen to them! “Your system was the first time any doctor refused to use the word diet with me. I liked the fact that we figured out what is really wrong with me hormonally that led to a life time of weight issues. I have lost weight before, but now after three months of maintaining the loss, I know WHY I was heavy. And best of all I now have the knowledge to avoid what got me this way in the first place.. This year has changed my life and I hope you go to Dr. Donatello’s seminar and learn what I learned. It could change your life too.” ~ Ruth K, South Berwick, Maine Not only can I make you lose weight, I can show you how to keep it off forever! In eighteen years of practice, I have found that helping people lose weight and keep it off is the one single thing that has the potential to create the most numerous changes in overall health problems. If you are like most people, you have probably lost weight in the past only to gain it back and then some – The old yo-yo dieting syndrome. There is a reason for that and I’ll show you what it is. There is no gimmick or quick fix that will ever make you lose weight permanently. This is the REAL THING! I know there is a good chance you are dealing with Type II Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Hypothyroidism, joint pain and possibly a number of other health conditions. Come spend one hour with me and I’ll show you how you may be able to completely rid yourself of Type II Diabetes, and possibly throwaway your blood pressure and cholesterol drugs forever. Whether you want to lose that last 10 pounds or you NEED to lose 100 pounds or more, I can show you how to do it. Norm, a 55-year-old man, suffering from Type II Diabetes, high blood pressure and several other health problems, has totally turned his life around after losing more than 40 pounds and getting off all his medications. “I have been coming to Dr. Donatello’s program for almost three months. I was bloated, pain in my joints, overweight with high blood sugar. It’s a really good program. You will feel so much better about yourself and feel healthier in a short period of time.” ~ Norm Vetter, Rochester, N.H.
IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT LOSING WEIGHT THIS YEAR, DO NOT MISS THIS FREE ONE-HOUR SEMINAR Listen to what some of my other patients have to say: “I’ve lost 19 pounds in 22 days under Dr. Donatello’s guidance. And I am not even hungry!” ~ Al C., Ogunquit, Maine “You have changed my life. I have lost close to 60 pounds and I now can actually go out and walk my dog. For the longest time, my feet and knees hurt so much that this was impossible. It may seem like a small thing but to me it makes my day.” ~ Mary S. Somersworth, NH
“I have had diabetes for years now and was on prescription meds. I didn’t like it. My blood sugars were over 300, I couldn’t feel my feet and I was overweight. Now. in just three weeks. my sugars are down to the 100 level, and after his first treatment I could feel my feet for the first time in months. I also have much more energy which has allowed me to get back into the gym with my son.” ~ Gene Beauragard, Kittery, Maine “I am happy to say I lost 18 pounds in the first two weeks!” ~ Lisa S., Portsmouth, N.H. “Looking back, I never realized how sick I really was. My energy level has gone through the roof since I lost those last 15 pounds. I can now do the little things in life without always being tired. Thanks Dr. Donatello.” ~ Tim T., Berwick, Maine “When I started with Dr. Donatello, I was a size 16. I am now a size 8.” ~ Kim L., York, Maine “For the last couple of years or even longer, I have felt tired, no energy, just not myself. I had seen Dr. Donatello’s ad in the paper so I checked him out, and here I am three short months later. I now can get up in the morning and do so much more. I now feel alive and I don’t know if I would have been for much longer. Definitely do this program! Don’t even hesitate – it’s not that difficult.” ~ Penny McGuire, Grey, Maine

Stable angina is the most common form, and usually follows a pattern that is common among patients.

Rest and medicine are at the root of treating angina, which is more easily treated once its cause has been determined.

Dear Fellow Runner, I know your pain. Having competed in more than 150 triathlons including multiple Ironman events, I know first hand what it’s like to wake up and limp across the bedroom floor. You hope and pray the pain will go away, but after a few months you start to come to the sad realization Father Time is not on your side, and your injury may be permanent. After hobbling around on a sore Achilles tendon for 18 months, I thought this would be the end of my running. I was then told by a colleague, who works with runners in California, about the great achievements he was making with the Class 4 K-laser. I decided to try it out for myself. Three treatments later, I no longer had pain and was blown away by the outcome. I have since purchased one and now use it regularly on my patients with amazing results.

over time, restricting blood flow and resulting in calcium deposits. Daily exercise and a healthy diet void of highfat, high-cholesterol foods are two ways to prevent or treat atherosclerosis. Cardiac Arrest Cardiac arrest is a culmination of several heart conditions, including angina and atherosclerosis. Also known as a heart attack, cardiac arrest occurs when blood and oxygen are unable to reach the heart. Chest discomfort; discomfort in other areas of the upper body, including the arms, back, neck or jaw; shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort; and nausea or lightheadedness may all be indicators that a person is going into cardiac arrest. Hypertension Also known as high blood pressure, hypertension is a relatively common heart condition. Nearly every adult has likely received a blood pressure reading at one point in his life. That reading measures the systolic pressure, which is the pressure created when the heart beats, and the diastolic pressure, which is the pressure in the heart when it is at rest. A blood pressure above 120 over 80 is considered high, and that high figure might be caused by salt and water levels in the body and the condition of the body’s kidneys, nervous system and blood vessels, as well as the body’s hormone levels. Treating hypertension is relatively simple, as a doctor will typically recommend some dietary changes and may even prescribe medication for those patients with especially high blood pressure. Stroke Stroke occurs when the blood supply to any part of the brain is interrupted. Potentially deadly, stroke can cause paralysis as well. Trouble speaking, loss of coordination and trouble moving limbs may be indicative of stroke, which is considered a medical emergency that requires immediate medical help. The longer a person goes between the onset of a stroke and seeking treatment often determines the severity of the consequences. More information on heart disease is available at www.heart.org.

An exhibit mounted by Cindi YoungGomes, of the Museums of Old York, brings together the memories
of Elizabeth Perkins’ extensive travels abroad, covering every continent except Australia. Perkins attended the coronation of the last Czar of Russia. As an amateur photographer she captured images of her visit to the ruins of Angkor Thom in Cambodia by elephant. An adventurer, she was pulled up a cliff by basket in order to reach a Greek mountain-top monastery. The coronation cup, the faded photograph, and her written account give us a glimpse into her world.

~ Ask The Computer Lady ~
Dear Computer Lady, I have Windows 7 and Internet Explorer. For some reason the print size on web sites has gotten very small. How do I get it back to normal? Thank-you, Barbara Dear Barbara, There are a couple of ways you can change the size of the print in Internet Explorer. If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse, you can simply hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and turn the scroll wheel on your mouse up and down until your web page text is a good size for you to read. You can also hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and then tap the + key or the key on your keyboard to make the page larger or smaller. A third method would be to click on the small “gear” icon in the upper-right corner of the Internet Explorer window, point to the “Zoom” menu and then click on a percentage, or click the “Zoom in” or “Zoom out” menu item. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, Once recently I saw a message on my screen “Another computer with the same IP address is on the network.” Now does this mean I
have been hacked? My second computer was off. What info might the “rogue” computer have access to? Everything in my files? What about my browser history? How should I have reacted? Ken Dear Ken, Usually when you see that message, it means that another computer, or a device like a networked printer or hard drive that is physically connected to your home network, has been assigned the same IP address by your router that your computer is currently using. This sometimes happens if another device boots up while another device is “asleep.” Since an IP address is simply a unique address given to all devices on a network, this usually doesn’t mean that someone has hacked into your computer. However, that doesn’t mean that it is impossible that someone hacked into your computer. You should always make sure you have a good firewall installed. Windows does come with a firewall, but there are also many others out there that do an even better job of protecting you from intruders. I use
AVG Internet Security, which includes a good firewall. One thing to avoid, is giving people remote access to your computer. While there are good tech support people out there who can remotely control your computer and fix problems for you, there are even more crooks out there who want you to think that they are fixing your computer, but instead they are either infecting your computer with their malware, stealing account numbers from your computer, or both. When someone hacks into your computer, either without your knowledge, or if you have given them access, they can access anything on your computer. It can be a file that you saved, or browser information about the last purchase you made online, including your credit card information. I’m not sure what to tell you for how you should have reacted. Prevention is much better than cleanup after the fact. Elizabeth Dear Computer Lady, I’ve received your newsletters for years. I can’t count the ideas from it. My question is, how many complete hard

drive back-ups should I keep on my external hard drive? My internal hard drive in my H-P is one Terra-byte, and my external one is also the same. I use Acronis True Image software. Many thanks for all your ideas. Pete K. Dear Pete, Assuming that your external hard drive is stored in the same physical location as your computer, one or two complete backups should be plenty. If the data that you are backing up is important to you, there are some other things you should also consider when preparing your backup plan. 1. If your external hard drive is always connected to your computer, it is just as susceptible to viruses or power surges. 2. If your external hard drive is in the same building as your computer, it is just as susceptible to fire, theft or other physical damage. While it is always a good idea to have a backup hard drive ready to restore your files in the event of a hard drive crash or failure, it should not be your only line of defense. You should also have a backup stored somewhere off site. Some people have two external hard drives, and rotate them, taking one of them to a different physical location each time they backup. An example might be that you take home the backup from your work computer each week after performing a backup. Other people use an online “Cloud” backup program like Carbonite or Mozy. These programs automatically backup new or changed files as you use your computer. You don’t have to remember to do the backup, or wait while the computer runs the backup program. Elizabeth

Dear Computer Lady, I find your information to be valuable; however, I have not been on this list very long. I do have a question, I have Windows 7. How do I delete all of the places I have looked at once or twice? Thank you so much, Valerie Dear Valerie, I’m guessing that you are asking about places you have looked at online. All you have to do, is open your internet options and delete your history. Here is how: 1. Click on “Start,” then click on “Control Panel.” 2. In the Control Panel window, click on the “Network and Internet” category. 3. Click on “Internet Options” to open the Internet properties dialog box. 4. In the “Browsing History” section, click the “Delete...” button. 5. In the dialog box that appears, make sure “History” is selected, then click the “Delete” button at the bottom of the dialog box.

The Laconia Car Company of Laconia, NH, built car 4175 in 1914. It was part of the 4100 series of cars built for the Bay State Street Railway. The car was state-of-the-art for its day, built for the largest street railway system in the world at the time. Laconia was a boutique car builder, and car 4175 is a prime example of that builder’s art with an interior of hand-rubbed cherry woodwork and polished bronze hardware. So strong was the car’s external construction that its riveted steel body has not needed any re-work. The joints are still tight after almost a century. Car 4175 has had many lives in its 98 year history, some of which include: originally running in Revere, Mass., on the Boston-Beachmont line. In 1917, it was transferred to Newport, RI to run on the Newport division of the Bay State system and was subsequently sold to the Newport County Electric Company. In 1926, it was sold to the Coast Cities Railway in Asbury Park, NJ where it ran until 1929. After it was removed from service that year, it evolved into a summer cottage in Egg Harbor, NJ where it remained until the Seashore Trolley Museum acquired it in 1976.

Flurry of Projects Rounds out 10 Years of Conservation
YORK COUNTY – Four projects comprising over 200 acres of newly conserved land that protects critical wildlife habitat, drinking water quality, outdoor education, public recreation and cultural heritage caps this year’s 10th anniversary of the Mt. Agamenticus to the Sea Conservation Initiative (MtA2C). The milestone occasion also marked the MtA2C coalition partners’ launch of a revised Strategic Plan, which includes goals and vision for charting and implementing the future course of conservation. Two of the four projects completed between November and year’s end are located in York. The first is a 120-acre addition of mature forest to the York Land Trust’s McIntire Highlands Preserve in the Horse Hills area of Mt. A. Made possible through funding from The Nature Conservancy, Maine Coast Heritage Trust, the Davis Conservation Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trusts, The Baldwin Foundation and David and Judy McKelvey, this parcel is surrounded on three sides by Kittery Water District lands that drain into the Boulter Pond, a drinking water reservoir that serves 20,000 residents of York, Eliot and Kittery. This property also protects the historic remnants of one of York’s founding farmstead families, and is popular for its recreational through-trails to the Mt. Agamenticus Summit. The second project represents a 19-acre conveyance of key wildlife habitat from the Town of York to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife that adjoins other conserved lands in Mt. A.’s
Third Hill region. MtA2C Partner Great Works Regional Land Trust (GWRLT), with significant funding support provided by the Maine Natural Resource Conservation Program, conserved two additional parcels. 40 acres of wetland wildlife habitat was preserved at Cox’s Pond located in Mt. A.’s South Berwick area. This project filled in a gap between two existing preserves and extends the surrounding conservation area to 60 acres. The fourth parcel, also adjacent to existing conservation lands, comprises 37-acres of Ogunquit River highvalue wetlands. Funding for the Ogunquit River project includes a water-course restoration component to reconnect two wetlands on the property with the Ogunquit River and enhance safe road crossings for amphibians, reptiles and small mammals including Maine’s endangered Blanding’s and threatened spotted turtles. According to Doreen MacGillis, MtA2C Land Protection committee chairperson and York Land Trust executive director, “since 2002, MtA2C has completed 55 projects adding over 3,110 acres of protected natural re-
sources and cultural heritage to a conservation area that today totals 13,144 acres within Kittery, Eliot, York, South Berwick, Wells and Ogunquit. Yet there is much more work to be done in our part of the state, which is remarkable for having both the greatest biological diversity and the highest growth rate in all of Maine,” said MacGillis. An updated strategic plan renewed the coalition partners’ commitment to realizing their shared vision to endeavor to create a future that sustains livable and economically viable communities where: every child has access to open spaces and wild places; where food and forest products are locally and sustainably produced; where clean water flows in our reservoirs, rivers, streams, estuaries and along our beaches; where wetlands and intact blocks of forest support viable populations of native plants and animals; where year-round outdoor recreational opportunities are a short drive, bike ride or walk away; and where resilient infrastructure and ecosystems adapt to changing environmental conditions. MtA2C coordinator Karen Young will put her natural resource experience to the test as she facilitates the ambitious new goal embraced by the MtA2C partners, who aim to preserve an additional 6,000 acres over the next two decades (by 2032) to complete a 19,000-acre network of connected conservation lands and natural resources within the 48-000-acre core area of the MtA2C region to benefit people and wildlife.

...BOON from page 24 more editorial than both creating from blank pages in front of them. This is Vietze’s seventh book, and Erickson’s first. “Andrew made it a pageturner in the way that my manuscript was not,” Erickson said. “Basically what we had to go on were the two versions of the story (the three manuscripts of the Captain vs. the depositions of the crew.” They augmented that material with layered writings from the “psychology of disaster,” they said, modern scientific explanations of historical disasters, as Sebastian Junger did in “The Perfect Storm.” The resulting immediacy of the narrative brings readers to the cold, barren landscape of Boon Island as survivors of the Nottingham Galley struggled for rescue, which ultimately came when the corpse of one of their own washed up on the Maine shore. The authors consulted medical experts to get the grim details accurate. “Doctor Evan Lloyd has a couple of good books on cold stress. He’s one of the authorities on it,” Erickson said. “I corresponded with him, and he helped me understand what was happening to these guys from a distance of 300 years.” The authors said it was tricky business trying to research 1710, when Portsmouth was the last safe place where you could walk, and the town itself had a garrison wall. All the circumstantial evidence points to the Captain’s nefarious plot involving treason and insurance fraud. The effort to prove this theory took Erickson
across the Atlantic, where he set out to solve the crime by writing the story. “I was doing research in the British Library when I discovered pamphlets about how smuggling worked off the coast if Ireland,” Erickson said. “It was an aha moment.” Boon Island is a barren piece about 300 by 700 feet in size. About the only thing that exists there now is Boon Island Light, the tallest lighthouse in New England, now in disrepair. Over the years, Boon Island has seen a series of storms when the lighthouse keeper there had to go to the highest point of the lighthouse to survive. “You can see Boon Island from Ogunquit Beach, York, the Nubble area,” Vietze said. “It’s basically a rock, sometimes the island is totally submerged with water. I’d love to see the lighthouse preserved with a plaque on the side of it to the victims of Nottingham Galley,” Erickson said. ...EVENTS from page 23 October Road Musical Performance
Join Atria Kennebunk at 2 p.m. for a performance by October Road. Musicians Jeff Line and Heather McLellan will be sure to get you singing and dancing. McLellan has performed in many theater musicals in Maine and throughout the US. Line has played guitar and sung in numerous bands with a wide variety of styles from rock and metal to blues and Irish folk. Light refreshments will be served.

SPORTS Berwick Hockey Player to Participate in Maccabiah Games in Israel Senior Goaltender Max Motew Chosen to Skate for Team USA SOUTH BERWICK – Berwick Academy senior goaltender Max Motew was recently chosen to compete for Team USA in the upcoming Maccabiah Games in Israel from July 18-30, 2013. The Maccabiah is the world’s largest Jewish athletic competition and takes place every four years. The event is also known as the “Jewish Olympics” and is Maccabi World Union’s largest and most famous enterprise. Motew came to Berwick Academy as a senior this fall and plays for the boys’ varsity hockey team. He has been playing hockey since the age of three and has been in the goal since age five, following in his father’s footsteps. He began playing travel hockey by the age of seven and went up through the ranks in the Midwest Hockey League, ending his Midwest days after playing for the elite AAA level for both the Chicago Young Americans and Team Illinois.

Max Motew (courtesy photo)
The summer after eighth grade, Motew was selected to play in his first big East Coast Showcase called Hockey Night in Boston, known as a week where many prep school coaches come to scout out new players. Motew was scouted by Hebron Academy, where he attended from grades 9-11 before transfer-
ring to Berwick Academy this year. Motew is originally from Highland Park, Illinois, and currently lives with teammate Jake Morrisette, whose family is hosting him for the 2012-2013 school year. Last spring and summer Motew was selected to play in several east coast Eastern Junior
Sea Dogs Manager Returns for 2013 Season Former Red Sox catcher named hitting coach PORTLAND – The Boston Red Sox have announced the 2013 Portland Sea Dogs’ coaching staff. Kevin Boles will return as the teams’ manager. Pitching coach Bob Kipper and athletic trainer Brandon Henry will also return. Former Red Sox catcher Rich Gedman will join the Sea Dogs as the clubs’ hitting coach. Ben Crockett, Boston’s director of player development, made the announcement. Boles, 37, returns for his third season as the Sea Dogs manager. The 2013 season will be his sixth in the Red Sox organization and 13th as a minor league manager. He guided the Sea Dogs to a 68-73 (.482) record in 2012. Under the leadership of Boles, the team produced the best record in the Eastern League in the second half of the season battling back from being 18 games under .500 at the All-Star Break to competing for a playoff spot in the final week of the season. In two seasons with the Sea Dogs, Boles has compiled a 127-156 (.449) record. Rich Gedman, 53, enters his first season as the Sea Dogs’ hitting coach. He served in the same capacity for the Salem Red Sox in 2012 and the Lowell Spinners in 2011. Previously he managed six
seasons for the Worcester Tornadoes (2005-2010) in the independent Can-Am League. Before managing Worcester, Gedman served as the bench coach for the Can-Am League’s North Shore Spirit. A native of Massachusetts, Gedman signed with the Red Sox as a non-drafted free agent in 1977 and played 13 seasons in the Major Leagues with the Red Sox (1980-1990), Houston Astros (1990) and St. Louis Cardinals (1991-1992). A career .252 hitter
with 88 home runs and 382 RBI; he earned a pair of All-Star selections in 1985 and 1986. He was the Red Sox catcher for the 1986 American League pennant run and caught Roger Clemens’ first 20-strikeout game on April 29, 1986. The Sea Dogs will open their 20th season on Thursday, April 4, at 6 p.m. against the Trenton Thunder (Yankees) at Hadlock Field. FMI: 207-879-9500 or www.seadogs.com.

Hockey League Showcases to experience the junior levels of hockey for the first time. While at one of the showcases, Motew and his dad met the hockey director of the Maccabiah Games. It was then that he was invited to the 2013 Maccabiah Games Open hockey try-outs. Of the 15 goalies to try out, Motew was not only the youngest, but also the only goalie to be selected for the team within his age group, along with two others from a different age group. “I am very honored to be part of this awesome experience of competing in the sport I love in Israel. I will spend two weeks with the boys on my team and meet people from all over
the world. I have never been to Israel so I am extremely excited and can’t wait to bring home the gold!” Motew said. This will be the first trip for the USA Hockey team to the Maccabiah Games in 15 years, which makes this event very special for the team and for Motew. Andy Lathrop, Motew’s Berwick Academy coach, said “Max is an extremely hard worker and very deserving of such an incredible honor. During the short time he has played for BA, he has proven to be a very talented goaltender and an excellent addition to our team. He will do well and we are all very proud of him here at BA.”

~ Pets ~ Safe Haven Humane Society WELLS – Our 50 percent off storewide sale at our thrift shop during last Saturday’s Holiday Open House was a great success. Joanie and Elaine rang up record-breaking sales. Friends of Safe Haven brought donations to help us continue our No-Kill mission rescuing desperate strays. Special thanks to Jean for her very generous gift to help pay our vet bills, and to everyone who gave monetary and supply donations. Have you noticed people wearing beautiful handcrafted mittens artfully designed and sewn by Bella and Barney? These two industrious kitties, with the help of their mom, have created Mittens for Kittens to help Safe Haven kitties stay healthy. These mittens are very luxurious and unique. Like snowflakes, each is different and one of a kind, made of the most beautiful patterns and colors from recycled sweaters. Many have a unique button on the cuff and are lined with the softest fleece, also recycled. All year long, Bella and Barney collect used wool and fleece garments to use for mittens. It’s amazing how many pairs these kittens have sewn this year. Many thanks to the kitties’ mom, who wishes to remain anonymous, who sells them at craft shows through-
out Maine. Bella and Barney brought Safe Haven a large package adorned with a beautiful bow. Inside was a huge check made out to Safe Haven for $2,500! This gift represented so much work, kindness, generosity, and talent. What a blessing to all our kitties! It’s inspiring what two cats and one person can do. Thank you so much, Bella and Barney – and your mom! Please help by donating your old wool sweaters and colorful fleece garments, even if they have a rip, hole or spot. Drop them off at our adoption center. Judy and Rex surprised us all with baskets bulging with glorious gifts for our kitties. Soft fleece blankets, toys, treats, cans of Fancy Feast, catnip and unique gifts filled the baskets – plus an air purifier for our catroom. We are so happy and appreciative. Their baskets of donations, their generous monthly support, and the air purifier are all truly blessings. Thank you both so much! The New Year is almost here. Thanks to all of you, Safe Haven’s kitties enjoyed a wonder-
Safe Haven Humane Society 1616 Post Rd. (Rt. 1) / PO Box 91 Wells, ME 04090
ful Christmas with treats and toys and soft blankets. We look at them and remember each of their stories and how they came to us. We’re thankful we can do our work and how it benefits them. They’re out of harm’s way, out of the woods and the drafty sheds. They no longer have to scavenge for food in the freezing cold and sleet. Their babies are fat and safe. The older and critically ill ones are comfortable, enjoying the coming new year. How many more need to
come in? Many. How will we do it? One at a time. Who will help us do it? You will, we hope. We’ve never been able to do our work alone. We thank each of you for helping us in whatever way you can, and being part of our life-saving mission. We hope 2013 brings you to our door to work with us, volunteer with us, help us pay our expenses and feed our hungry rescues. Thank you for your support throughout the years! We wish you each a very happy and
Healthy New Year!
