The eight-foot wide wooden bridge was sold to the Belmont Conservation Commission for $1 by the Dover City Council last month after efforts by Dover residents to keep in that community and use it as a centerpiece for a park fell short. Built in 1996 at a cost of $162,845, the bridge was removed with a crane in 2010 and is currently dry-docked, in the way of a waterfront development. Selectman John Pike said the town’s Conservation Commission and Heritage Commission have developed plans for the use of the bridge, whose parts will be stored over the winter in the Public Works garage with an eye toward reconstructing it over the Tioga River next year. The Conservation Commission discussed the project at its August 7 meeting at which Chairman Ken Knowlton reported that contractor Mark see BrIdGE page 11 Co-feature Smurfs 2 (PG) Help us go “Digital” Vote daily in Honda’s “Project Drive-In” contest.

(AP) — Colby-Sawyer College has set up a 50-foot wind turbine on campus that will allow students to gather energy data.

College officials tell the Concord Monitor) that’s just small fraction of the up to 4 million kilowatt-hours the school uses on average, but its purpose is more educational. The turbine, which cost about $19,000 and was funded through a grant, has a computerbased monitoring system that allows for gathering data on its effectiveness and under different weather conditions.

Hasan of Fort Hood massacre FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — A military jury on Friday convicted Maj. Nidal Hasan in the deadly 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, making the Army psychiatrist eligible for the death penalty in the shocking assault against American troops by one of their own on home soil. There was never any doubt that Hasan was the gunman. He acknowledged to the jury that he was the one who pulled the trigger on fellow soldiers as they prepared to deploy overseas to Iraq and Afghanistan. And he barely defended himself during a three-week trial. The unanimous decision on all 13 counts of premeditated murder made Hasan eligible for execution in the sentencing phase that begins Monday. “This is where members (of the jury) decide whether you will live or whether you will die,” said Col. Tara Osborn, the trial judge. Hasan, who said he acted to protect Muslim insurgents abroad from American aggression, did not react to the verdict, looking straight at jurors as they announced their findings. After the hearing, relatives of the dead and wounded fought back tears. Some smiled and warmly patted each other’s shoulders as they left court. Because Hasan never denied his actions, the court-martial was always less about a conviction than it was about ensuring he received a death sentence. From the beginning, the federal government has sought to execute Hasan, believing that any sentence short of a lethal injection would deprive the military and the families of the dead see FORT HOOD page 4 ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– TOP OF THE NEWS–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash.

Filner was regretful and defiant during a City Council meeting as he explained the “the toughest decision of my life.” He apologized to his accusers but insisted he was innocent of sexual harassment and said he was the victim of a “lynch mob.” “The city should not have to go through this, and my own personal failures were responsible and I apologize to the city,” Filner said after the council voted 7-0 on a deal that ended a political stalemate after 17 women publicly accused him of harassment. “To all the women that I offended, I had no intention to be offensive, to violate any physical or emotional space,” he said. “I was trying to establish personal relationships but the combination of awkwardness and hubris I think led to behavior that many found offensive.” The city will pay Filner’s legal fees in a joint defense of a lawsuit filed by the mayor’s former communications director and pay for any settlement costs assessed against the mayor except for punitive damages, said City Attorney Jan Goldsmith. The city would also pay up to $98,000 if Filner wants to hire his own attorney. Goldsmith said the city was obligated to provide his legal defense no matter what. The city now must turn to settling the lawsuit by the former communications director, who was the first woman to go public with allegations against Filner and is the only accuser to file a lawsuit against the mayor and the city. Irene McCormack Jackson claimed the mayor asked her to work without panties, demanded kisses, told her he wanted to see her naked and dragged her in a headlock while whispering in her ear. “My thoughts are with the courageous women, who because they spoke out, galvanized the residents of this great city and its elected leaders to rise up against a serial sexual harasser and a gross abuser of power,” said McCormack, as she is known professionally. “Bye-bye, Bob. You will not be missed.” THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, August 24, 2013— Page 3 Filner, backed by a sometimes boisterous crowd of supporters, challenged the City Council to pursue a laundry list of his policy initiatives, ranging from addressing climate change to bringing the Olympic Games to the region.

(Karen Bobotas/for the Laconia Daily Sun) Page 4 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, August 24, 2013 Council to look at details of $252k downtown ‘gateway’ plan on Mon. By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN LACONIA — The Downtown Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Advisory Board will present a revised plan for improvements to what has been dubbed “Gateway Plaza” on the north side of the Main Street bridge to the City Council when it meets Monday night. The plan consists of adding four elements to the existing space. Planting beds edged with granite curbing, each with two shade trees, would be placed in front of Sawyer’s Jewelry to the west and near the entrance to the parking garage to the east. In addition, to the planting bed there would be a brick island with planters and benches on the west side of the foot of Main Street. A green space, ringed with shade trees and lined granite seating, would front the Grace Capital Church, accented by circular brick plaza, 20 feet in diameter, at the corner of Main Street and Beacon Street West. Finally, a brick island with planters and would lie along Beacon Street East overlooking the Winnipesaukee River. The budget for the project is $252,276. The Advisory Board suggested landscaping the traffic island, by installing irrigation and granite curbing, as an option with an estimated price tag of $11,730. The original plan proposed replacing the concrete fronting Grace Capital Church and the parking garage on one side and Sawyer’s Jewelry on the other with brick pavers and both areas would be landscaped with shade trees and raised planters. Intended as a pedestrian plaza, it would include granite benches, timbered seating, trellises, sculpture and lighting. The traffic island on the bridge itself would also be landscaped. The cost of the design was estimated at between $417,000 and $455,000 depending on the type of materials used. When the Main Street Initiative group questioned whether investing in a pedestrian plaza at one of the busiest intersections in the city, the council trimmed the budget to include infrastructure — irrigation, drainage and electricity — required to support improvements while reducing the scope of the landscaping. The cost of the revised plan falls within the limits of between $250,000 and $300,000 set by the council. FORT HOOD from page 2 of the justice they have sought for nearly four years. Autumn Manning, whose husband, retired Staff Sgt. Shawn Manning, was shot six times during the attack, wept when the verdict was read. She said she had been concerned that some charges might be reduced to manslaughter, which would have taken a death sentence off the table. “This is so emotional,” she said in a telephone interview from Lacey, Wash., where she and her husband live. “I’ve just been crying since we heard it because it was a relief. ... We just wanted to hear the premeditated.” Hasan, who represented himself after firing his legal team, was also convicted on 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder. He carried out the attack in a crowded waiting room where unarmed troops were making final preparations to deploy. Thirteen people were killed and more than were 30 wounded. John Galligan, Hasan’s former lead attorney, said Hasan called him to make sure he heard the verdict, and the pair planned to meet later at Fort Hood. Galligan said the jury did not hear all the facts because the judge refused to allow evidence that helped explain Hasan’s actions. “Right or wrong, strong or weak, the facts are the facts,” he said. “The jury we heard from only got half the facts.” The jury of 13 high-ranking officers took about seven hours to reach the verdict.

Opechee milfoil treatment set for next week BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN Laconia City Councilor & Mayor Pro-Tem Bob Hamel came to the Laconia Senior Center on Friday to help Marie Carrigan celebrate her 100th birthday. (Laconia Daily Sun photo/Michael Kitch) Senior Center ‘gangleader’ celebrates 100 BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN LACONIA — “Oh, yes, I remember the Model-T. . . I rode in one,” exclaimed Marie Carrigan as City Councilor Bob Hamel reeled off a list of milestones she had passed when the Laconia Senior Center celebrated her 100th birthday yesterday. Carrigan has been an active volunteer at the center for the past two decades. She is revered for her baked goods, particularly her renowned chocolate cake, as well as her knitting and crocheting, which have brought joy to many of her fellow seniors. Carrignan was born in Canada, but has lived nearly all her life in New Hampshire, where she worked from preceding page jurors must all agree to give Hasan the death penalty before he can be sent to the military’s death row, which has just ﬁve other prisoners. If they do not agree, the 42-year-old will spend the rest of his life in prison. Hasan, a Virginia-born Muslim, said the attack was a jihad against U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He bristled when the judge suggested the shooting rampage could have been avoided were it not for a spontaneous ﬂash of anger. “It wasn’t done under the heat of sudden passion,” Hasan said before jurors began deliberating. “There was adequate provocation — that these were deploying soldiers that were going to engage in an illegal war.” All but one of the dead were soldiers, including a pregnant private who curled on the ﬂoor and pleaded for her baby’s life. The attack ended when Hasan was shot in the back by one of the ofﬁcers responding to the shooting. He is now paralyzed from the waist down and uses a wheelchair. Hasan planned to continue representing himself in the sentencing phase, which was expected to include more testimony from survivors of the attack inside an Army medical center in hosiery mill in Franklin. She was married for 41 years with one daughter, three grandsons and two greatgrandchildren and still makes her home in the same large house where she has lived for more than 60 years. A regular at the Bingo table on Wednesdays and Fridays as well as at “Dine Around,” she is known at the center as “the gangleader.” When Hamel noted that the year she was born marked the ﬁrst time a woman jumped from an airplane, someone was heard to “Marie drove her to it.” Asked what was the secret to a long life, Carrigan replied without hesitation “there’s no secret. The years just keep creeping up on you and all of a sudden you’re a hundred.” where soldiers were waiting in long lines to receive immunizations and medical clearance for deployment. Hasan began the trial by telling jurors he was the gunman, but he said little else, which convinced his court-appointed standby lawyers that Hasan’s only goal was to get a death sentence. The military called nearly 90 witnesses, but Hasan rested his case without calling a single person to testify in his defense and made no closing argument. Yet he leaked documents during the trial to journalists that revealed him telling military mental health workers that he could “still be a martyr” if executed. Death sentences are rare in the military and trigger automatic appeals that take decades to play out. Among the ﬁnal barriers to execution is authorization from the president. No American soldier has been executed since 1961. Hasan spent weeks planning the Nov. 5, 2009, attack. His preparation included buying the handgun and videotaping a sales clerk showing him how to change the magazine. He later plunked down $10 at a gun range outside Austin and asked for pointers on how to reload with speed and precision. LACONIA — Milfoil in Lake Opechee will be treated with a chemical herbicide applied on or around Thursday, September 5. The treatment was originally scheduled for early July but was postponed when the chemical herbicide that was to have been applied was found to have produced less than optimal results at other locations. Suzanne Perley of the Lake Opechee Preservation Association said that the treatment will cover 13 acres, divided between the areas at the north end of the lake near Anthony Drive and the eastern shore below the Lakeport Dam, at a cost of $13,256. She said that DES awarded the association a grant equal to 40-percent of the cost and the city and the association are splitting the balance evenly. On the day the herbicide is applied restrictions on the use of water will be imposed and posted. Swimming will be prohibited within 200 feet of the treated areas. Water drawn from intakes within 1,200 feet and wells within 50 feet of the treated areas should not be used for drinking, irrigating or watering plants until further notice. These restrictions will be posted on the shoreline prior to the treatment and any questions can be addressed to Marc Bellaud, Aquatic Control Technology, 11 John Road, Sutton, Massachusetts 01590-2509, (508) 865-1000 or info@aquaticcontroltech. com. PET OF THE WEEK Kayla & Bear Reach for the tissues folks, this is a sad story. Kayla and Bear aged 12 and 13 years respectively, arrived at NH Humane Society, via our friends at Meadow Pond Veterinary Hospital in Moultonborough. They had been brought to the vets after their owner, a well loved teacher, died suddenly, and tragically at the beginning of the summer. Not only has the community lost someone so dedicated to education and learning, she was completely dedicated to her two constant companions. Kayla and Bear must stay together. They must be assured life in their retirement home, for whatever time they have left, it would be their departed owners last wish; to know her dogs are safe. Obviously one must be prepared for the health issues these two large, mixed breeds dogs now have, but they too mourn their owner, and deserve not to spend their final chapter on earth at the shelter. We at New Hampshire Humane Society are grateful to the friends who have stopped to visit Kayla & Bear and offer solace, and to so many who sent Memorial donations in memory of their beloved owner. Now we ask the community to open their hearts and home to Kayla & Bear. For more information about these two wonderful creatures call us at 524-3252 or check www.nhhumane.org for details. Page 6 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, August 24, 2013 Michael Barone Stop & Frisk doesn’t target minorities, it protects them New York City seems on the verge of making the same mistake that Detroit made 40 years ago. The mistake is to abolish the NYPD practice referred to as stop and frisk. It’s more accurately called stop, question and frisk. People were stopped and questioned 4.4 million times between 2004 and 2012. But the large majority were not frisked. The effectiveness of this police practice, initiated by Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1994 and continued by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is not in doubt. The number of homicides — the most accurately measured crime — in New York fell from a peak of 2,605 in 1990 to 952 in 2001, Giuliani’s last year in office, to just 414 in 2012. Nevertheless, the three leading Democratic mayoral candidates in the city’s September primary all have pledged to end stop and frisk. And last week, federal judge Schira Scheindlin, in a lawsuit brought by 19 men who have been stopped and frisked, found that the practice is unconstitutional and racially discriminatory. Bloomberg has promised to appeal, and several of Scheindlin’s decisions in high-profile cases have been reversed. But the leading Democratic candidates for mayor promise, if elected, to drop the appeal. The two leading Republican candidates support stop and frisk, but their chances of election seem dim in a city that voted 81 percent for Barack Obama in 2012. What riles opponents of stop and frisk is that a high proportion of those stopped are young black and Hispanic males. Many innocent people undoubtedly and understandably resent being subjected to this practice. No one likes to be frisked, including the thousands of airline passengers who are every day. But young black and, to a lesser extent, Hispanic males are far, far more likely than others to commit (and be victims of) violent crimes, as Bloomberg points out. I take no pleasure in reporting that fact and wish it weren’t so. This was recognized by, among others, Jesse Jackson, who in 1993 said, “There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start to think about robbery and then look around and see it’s somebody white and feel relieved.” You can get an idea about what could happen in New York by comparing it with Chicago, where there were 532 homicides in 2012. That’s more than in New York, even though New York’s population is three times as large. One Chicagoan who supports stop and frisk is the father of Hadiya Pendleton, the 15-year-old girl shot down a week after singing at Barack Obama’s second inauguration. “If it’s already working, why take it away?” he told the New York Post. “If that was possible in Chicago, maybe our daughter would be alive.” Chicago and New York both have tough gun control laws. But bad guys can easily get guns in both cities. The difference, as the New York Daily News’s James Warren has pointed out, is that frequent stops and frisks combined with mandatory three-year sentences for illegal possession of a gun mean that bad guys in New York don’t take them out on the street much. Stop and frisk makes effective the otherwise ineffective gun control that Bloomberg so strongly supports. An extreme case of what happens when a city ends stop and frisk is Detroit. Coleman Young, the city’s first black mayor, did so immediately after winning the first of five elections in 1973. In short order Detroit became America’s murder capital. Its population fell from 1.5 million to 1 million between 1970 and 1990. Crime has abated somewhat since the Young years, but the city’s population fell to 713,000 in 2010 — just over half that when Young took office. People with jobs and families — first whites, then blacks — fled to the suburbs or farther afield. Those left were mostly poor, underemployed, in too many cases criminal — and not taxpayers. As a result, the city government went bankrupt last month. New York has strengths Detroit always lacked. But it is not impervious to decline. After Mayor John Lindsay ended tough police practices, the city’s population fell from 7.9 million in 1970 to 7.1 million in 1980. Those who decry stop and frisk as racially discriminatory should remember who is hurt most by violent crime — law-abiding residents of high-crime neighborhoods, most of them black and Hispanic, people like Hadiya Pendleton.

LETTERS Time for us to end this national nightmare called Obamacare To The Daily Sun, Obamacare has hurt enough people! It is time to end this evil sham of a health care plan. The (Un)Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was passed by a Democrat Congress that didn’t read it. Even getting Democrat votes required lies and bribes. Despite hundreds of Obama speeches and millions of taxpayer dollars spent on promotional propaganda, the American public continues to overwhelmingly oppose Obamacare. Americans know that Obamacare will only ruin our health care system that is the envy of the world. But Americans could not have imagined how harmful Obamacare is. Health care premiums are skyrocketing, often more than $5,000 greater than the reduced premiums that President Obama promised. Obamacare’s real cost (almost $3 trillion) is about three times its promised cost. Contrary to promises people are losing their health insurance. Some employers can no longer cover spouses with their employer provided insurance plans. People are losing their doctors and at least half of all doctors are considering early retirement. Obamacare Death Panels, promising a poorer quality of life and early death, have been acknowledged by many Obama insiders including Howard Dean, former chairman of the Democrat Party. Obamacare has been a disaster for American jobs. Only big businesses have the resources to understand and comply with this 2700 page law and its 20,000 pages of regulations, but big businesses are mostly cutting jobs. More regulations are promised, further destroying jobs. U.S. job growth has not kept up with the number of people who want to enter the workforce. Three-quarters of all the jobs created this year are part-time jobs because Obamacare requirements only apply to full time employees. It breaks my heart that millions of Americans are losing full time jobs, which have supported families for generations, and being offered part-time jobs instead. Obamacare has been the posterchild for cronyism and manipulation for political purposes. Obama friends received waivers from harmful provisions. Other pain causing requirements have been delayed until after elections. More than half the legal deadlines have been missed. The poorly planned roll-out of the exchanges will allow untrusted and untrained people to access people’s most personal health and financial information. Now labor unions and other former Obamacare supporters don’t want it. IRS employees enforcing Obamacare don’t want it. Congress and their staffs don’t want it although the law specified that they were to feel its impact like other citizens. Fearing the consequences of Congressional pain, the administration exempted them. We, however, are not exempt. It is time to end this national nightmare. Sign the petition at dontfundit2013.com. Demand that your congressman, senators, and congressional leaders defund and repeal Obamacare. Your prosperity, longevity, and quality of life may depend on it. Don Ewing Meredith Voice your opinion on expanding Medicaid in Concord on Tues. To The Daily Sun, On Tuesday, August 27 there will be a public hearing on the possible Obamacare Medicaid expansion here in New Hampshire. The hearing will be from 1 to 4 p.m. in Representatives Hall at the Statehouse in Concord. Since this hearing is during a work day, we know hard working citizens may not be able to voice their opinion on the expansion, but I encourage anyone who is able to attend and encroachment into our state through Medicaid expansion. Bring a friend along — let’s make our voices heard! We know Obamacare will lead to higher private health insurance costs and lesser quality care for all citizens. Business is negatively affected with the mandate of Obamacare. To be sure, none of this is right for New Hampshire or our residents.

Members of the Delegation have joined the ranks of interested citizens and taxpayers of Belknap County, a number of local selectboards and city councilors, members of the law enforcement and criminal justice system, and interest-based and leadership groups such as the League of Women Voters, Leadership Lakes Region, Leadership NH, CASA, DCYF-Laconia, Belmont Explorers, Children’s Fund of NH, the Tilton School, and the Laconia Citizen’s Academy, just to name a few. A walk through more than 130 years of construction history dating back to the 1890s reveals not simply how well the physical structures have held up over the years but more importantly how the construction styles have evolved and drives the way we hold, and provide services to those citizens who have been placed under our charge. Those very practical changes from simple brick walls, to cinder block construction, to poured concrete walls and rolls of razor wire, and from traditional cell blocks to military-style dorm housing all tell stories about the people held within each group and the society that held them. It is overly simplistic to suggest that we can (or should) as a community house our inmates all inside a military tent as our soldiers, sailors or airmen might have to do in times of war in a foreign land, or that military barrack style housing as is used in boot camp is appropriate for all levels of inmates from those facing driving offenses together with those charged with home invasion, burglary, rape or drug sales resulting in the death of another. Your jail... the jail of today... houses every one of those inmates and many more. The jail on County Drive is a microcosm of society. We would never think that a one-size-fits-all approach would work in a school, a hospital, or any other large-scale public safety complex and after more than 20-years specializing in criminal justice, justice studies, and corrections, I can assure you that it doesn’t work in this field either. The purpose of an effective classification system is to secure dangerous inmates or those who pose significant risks to society in secure detention settings, including single or double bunk cells, while at the same time recognizing that those who pose little risk and who are able to reasonably return to society better than when they arrived can do so with a little help from professionally trained staff. Although my staff and I highlighted all of the positive accomplishments of our programming and classification efforts to reduce recidivism and to be the best stewards of the taxpayer’s funding, it is clear that much emphasis was placed on the visual inspection of the facility by members of this tour group. Their depiction in the August 20 Laconia Daily Sun was “spot on” and I appreciate the recognition of our efforts to address those areas of the building that had been painted and cleaned where they could be as well as noting those areas of deficiency that needed attention. I have heard suggestions that paint and polish can simply be the “lipstick on a pig” and while those things are clearly desirable, they fail to address fundamental safety, security or operational concerns that are of primary importance. Certainly I would be the last person to suggest that years of neglect or a lack of maintenance or replacement of broken locks, poor electrical systems, rusting pipes, shortage of staffing to properly supervise the inmates or maintenance projects, or broken HVAC systems don’t contribute to the accelerated decay of any building or system but paint and polish alone won’t fix that issue. I don’t believe anyone is suggesting we should have a “pretty jail” but rather one that meets the changing needs of Belknap County, that addresses the growing substance abuse and mental health epidemic, and provides legislatively mandated services to those “sentenced to hard labor” and also those who are “presumed innocent”, detained without criminal commitment and awaiting trial. We are often asked by members of the tour groups how we are able to manage our population. In the early 1990s the inmate population in total was as low as 34. In 2013, your jail holds as many as 120 inmates within its walls; this in a building that was designed to hold 87 bodies. Operationally that means the jail’s “support services” were designed for 87 people. Services such as toilets, showers, seating areas to eat meals, telephones to talk to attorneys and family members, visiting booths and recreation areas and physical floor space — all of which are governed by national standards used by the courts for the treatment and detention of prisoners. We exceed that cap every single day by having some inmates sleep on the floor on a “stack-a-bunk” plastic sled bed. We have converted the gym space for housing, have taken away two program areas to make additional housing units and double-bunked cells not intended for or designed to hold the numbers assigned. My answer to the question is always, “we make it work because we have no right of refusal in a jail”; we accept whomever the police department arrests and detains and whomever the court sentences without regard to pre-existing medical issues, gang affiliation, mental health status, drug abuse history, predatory nature or potential to be preyed upon. We hold inmates as young as 17 years old and have individuals well in to their 80s today. I would ask those who suggest a single cinder block 4-walled dorm whether careful consideration was given with regards to the protection of these various groups and the unique needs that may be required to hold them as they each come and go “through the system” between one day and up to several years? Today, we are supervising 143 inmates. We have 111 inmates inside the jail. The remainder are benefiting from services and programming that we have designed to help reduce our population and to safely reintegrate inmates back in to the community in a manner that helps them to become the law-abiding contributing members of society that we all expect. Although I spend a significant amount of time discussing programming during that tour and how our one classroom space is used to offer some 37 programs to all classification levels, ages and to both males and females, the article discussing the “needs of the jail” failed to even mention it as a consideration. Could we stack inmates like cordwood by simply going higher with bunk beds? Since we have exhausted floor square footage, the only option left is cubic-foot space (go up!). I can simply remind those who consider this as a solution that the building was not designed to support that theory. A home’s kitchen table or a septic system in one’s own yard was only designed to accommodate a fixed number. You can temporarily exceed that design but at what cost and for how long is uncertain; eventually, creative manipulation of time and services provided will no longer handle the approaching tides. The need to address the functional and operational plan for the entire criminal justice system in Belknap County goes significantly beyond the overcrowding that has existed here since 2006 when the average daily population first exceeded design capacity. The county has steadfastly supported alternative sentencing programs, electronic monitoring, work release, drug and alcohol counseling, pre-trial and diversion services, and creative sentencing options with the local courts as means to address the numbers and the specific needs of incarcerated and potentially incarcerated individuals. We have partnerships with UNH Cooperative Extension, Belknap-Merrimack Community Action Program, DCYF, Lakes Region Community College, NH Employment Security, Horizons Counseling and the Nathan Brody Program, Genesis Behavioral Health, and countless individual services providers within our communities to create a network of collaboration. Without the efforts of these men, women, and organizations, I can assure you that you could not build a jail large enough to address the needs that would be presented to this county. It is not about simply building a building but rather building a system that addresses the needs that are unique to our community. The citizens and taxpayers of Belknap County should be proud of the work that is being done at this facility. The professional and dedicated employees commit themselves to managing a population that we read about every day on the front page of every single newspaper. We make it possible to sleep soundly at night and to know that your neighbor, loved one, or stranger who gets out of jail and returns back to your community was treated fairly and was given the tools to live as a law-abiding citizen. Thanks again to this group and those who join me on an almost daily basis to explore and understand the jail, how it operates, and the role it plays in the criminal justice system of the 21st century. Daniel P. Ward, Sr., MBA/PA, CJM Superintendent Belknap County Department of Corrections Ocean of people eating at Multicultural Festival should be a clue To The Daily Sun, I am proud and happy to say I have only missed one Multicultural Market Day because I had to go to a wedding at Waterville Valley. Carol Pierce and her committees over the years have made it better and better. This year I invited a friend who had never gone. She could not get over how great it is and also, how everyone is happy to be there. Not one mean-spirited, pushy, shoving, cursing person anywhere. Colonial Theater needs to be restored. We have good food down town but a Greek restaurant would be nice. When you see the ocean of people eating ethnic food at Multicultural Market Day, you know people crave food they do not want to bother with at home. Nobody misses Bloom’s or Sundial more than I do, but it takes more than a one woman committee to keep downtown prosperous. How sad that some people feel there is nothing downtown. We also have a great library, with many free programs, displays, and helpful great staff. I am proud to live in the middle of all this. Come on down and join the fun. Oh, and there is our five-day-a-week Senior Center. Even though there are many old people who go there they are still volunteering and helping one another. I could go on and on but just ask me.

(AP) — A cousin of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez pleaded not guilty Friday to a contempt charge for allegedly refusing to testify before the grand jury that indicted Hernandez in the murder of a friend. Tanya Singleton entered her plea on a criminal contempt charge during a brief court appearance in Fall River. Her attorney, E. Peter Parker, did not seek bail for her, agreeing that she be held until a hearing on Oct. 3. Singleton was offered immunity but refused to testify before the grand jury, District Attorney Samuel Sutter said. She has been held since Aug. 1 in a Suffolk County jail and was indicted Thursday. The grand jury on Thursday indicted Hernandez on first-degree murder and weapons charges in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend. Lloyd’s body was found June 17 in an industrial park in North Attleborough, about a mile from Hernandez’s home. He had been shot five times. Hernandez, 23, pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in district court in June, and he is being held without bail. One of his attorneys, Michael Fee, said Thursday that there had been an “incredible rush to judgment” in the case and that he doesn’t believe the state will be able to prove the charges during a jury trial. Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated the killing because he was upset at Lloyd for talking to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub days earlier. They say two Hernandez associates, Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, were with the explayer at the time Lloyd was killed. In Fall River on Friday, the judge held a closed hearing before Singleton’s arraignment. Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for Sutter, declined to comment lo w m o r tg ag e r at e s w h i l e t h e y l a s t Page 8 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, August 24, 2013 on the substance of the proceeding. He also would not comment on what information prosecutors had hoped to learn from Singleton in grand jury testimony. Miliote said the punishment for a criminal contempt conviction is at the discretion of the judge. Parker had no comment outside the courthouse on the indictment. Asked how she’s doing, he said: “She’s doing good.” In July, authorities seized a cellphone and credit and bank cards from Singleton, who is from Hernandez’s hometown of Bristol, Conn. Court records show Ortiz told investigators he and Wallace drove to Bristol after Lloyd’s killing and that he was dropped off at Singleton’s house. Ortiz said he discussed Lloyd’s killing with her. Authorities say Singleton later purchased a bus ticket for Wallace to travel to Miramar, Fla., where his parents live. Wallace was indicted Thursday on a charge of being an accessory to murder after the fact. He pleaded not guilty earlier in district court to the same charge. He was ordered held on $500,000 bail. Ortiz has not been indicted. He pleaded not guilty in district court to a weapons charge and is being held without bail. He has a court hearing Thursday. SENTENCE from page 2 and wept. An interpreter flashed a thumbs-up sign to a row of Afghan villagers who were either wounded or lost family members in the March 11, 2012, attacks. “I saw his mother trying to cry, but at least she can go visit him,” Hajji Mohammad Naim, who was shot in the neck, said after the sentencing. “What about us? Our family members are actually 6 feet under.” The villagers, who traveled nearly 7,000 miles to testify against Bales, spoke with reporters through an interpreter and asked what it would be like for someone to break into American homes and slaughter their families. A boy of about 13 displayed a scar from a bullet wound to his leg.

CAFE from page one just amazing,” Roy said. “People on the street kept asking us ‘when are you going open? When are you going to open?’” Roy said that the renovation provided an opportunity to make a few small changes. The counter was shrunk and an elevated booth was added to the smaller of the two dining rooms. A new door was fitted leading to outdoor seating. The Roys also took the opportunity to refine the dinner menu. “It is geared to casual yet sophisticated,” Roy said, “with new wines and bottled beers.” He explained that “people come here because they know what to expect. It’s hard to change something that’s worked so well for so long,” he continued. “We’ve stuck to our roots by trying to keep the old favorites and add some new items.” Roy said that only two employees on hand when the restaurant burned have returned. “We’re very fortunate to have found good people, very professional and eager to learn.” Although disappointed to have lost most of the busiest season, the Roys are not looking back. “I look at it as a summer vacation and now we’re back to work. Most of of all we’re getting back to normalcy in our life,” he said. The Roys have owned the business since 1988, when they acquired LaFlamme’s, a small coffee shop, which traced its origins to a downtown bakery that opened in the 1920s. With urban renewal in the 1970s , the business moved to Water Street. In 1992, the Roys rebuilt and reopened as the Water Street Cafe. On August 27, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. the Roys will host Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours and mark the reopening with a ribbon cutting. Meanwhile, Roy said that he is planning a New Year’s Eve party, “2014 has got to better than 2013,” he said.

Bales never offered an explanation for why he armed himself with a 9 mm pistol and an M-4 riﬂe and left his post on the killing mission, but he apologized on the witness stand Thursday and described the slaughter as an “act of cowardice, behind a mask of fear, bulls--- and bravado.” The villagers said they hadn’t read or listened to the apology. One, Mullah Baran, called it a “fraud.” Prosecutors described Bales as a “man of no moral compass.” “In just a few short hours, Sgt. Bales wiped out generations,” Lt. Col. Jay Morse told the jury in his closing argument. “Sgt. Bales dares to ask you for mercy when he has shown none.” A commanding general overseeing the court-martial has the option of reducing the sentence to life with the possibility of parole. Defense attorney Emma Scanlan argued for the lighter sentence, begging jurors to consider her client’s prior life and years of good military service and suggested he snapped under the weight of his fourth combat deployment. She read from a letter Bales sent to his two children 10 weeks before the killing: “The children here are a lot like you. They like to eat candy and play soccer. They all know me because I juggle rocks for them.” “These aren’t the words of a coldblooded murderer,” Scanlan said. She also read from a letter sent by a fellow soldier, a captain who said that Bales seemed to have trouble handling a decade of war and death: “The darkness that had been tugging “Knowing that renewable energy is going to be the future of energy in our country, we want to make sure the students know how those systems work,” she said. at him for the last 10 years swallowed him whole.” Prosecutors laying out the case for a life term, argued that Bales’ own “stomach-churning” words demonstrated that he knew exactly what he was doing. “My count is 20,” Bales told another soldier when he returned to the base. Morse displayed a photograph of a girl’s bloodied corpse and described how Bales executed her where she should have felt safest — beside her father, who was also slain. Morse also played a surveillance video of Bales returning to the base after the killings, marching with “the methodical, conﬁdent gait of a man who’s accomplished his mission.” Bales, an Ohio native who lived in Lake Tapps, Wash., was under personal, ﬁnancial and professional stress at the time. He had stopped paying the mortgage on one of his houses, was concerned about his wife’s spending and hadn’t received a promotion he wanted. “Sgt. Bales commits these barbaric acts because he takes stock of his life,” Morse said. “Sgt. Bales thinks the rest of the world is not giving him what he deserves.” The closing arguments came a day after Bales apologized for the attack, saying he’d bring back the victims “in a heartbeat” if he could. “I’m truly, truly sorry to those people whose families got taken away,” he said in a mostly steady voice during questions from one of his lawyers. “I can’t comprehend their loss. I think about it every time I look at my kids.” Page 10 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, August 24, 2013 0.60 % APY* 9 - Month CD AND 1.00 % APY* 15 - Month CD *Up to FDIC insured limits.

Smoke blowing across the Sierra into the state of Nevada forced officials in several counties to cancel outdoor school activities and issue health advisories, especially for people with respiratory problems. Authorities urged more evacuations in nearby communities where thousands have already been forced out by flames. The fire was threatening about 4,500 residences, according to the U.S. Forest Service. Already, the blaze has destroyed four homes and 12 outbuildings in several different areas. More than 2,000 firefighters were on the lines and one sustained a heat-related injury. While the park remained open, the blaze closed a 4-mile stretch of State Route 120, one of three entrances into Yosemite on the west side. Two other western routes and an eastern route were open.

Backcountry permits are required to hike in that area, Cobb said. The park was no longer issuing those and had contacted every person who had received a permit to go there. Two roads into that area were closed and occupants of a campground near the Route 120 west entrance were relocated. “We don’t have anybody we know of in that area based on the permits we have out now,” she said. The fire was more than 20 miles from Yosemite Valley and skies there were “crystal clear,” Cobb said. “Right now there are no closures, and no visitor services are being affected in the park,” he said. “We just have to take one day at a time depending on fire activity.” The Hetch Hetchy reservoir supplies San Francisco with 85 percent of its water, but the city’s Public Utilities Commission said in a statement that water quality has not been affected by the fire and was unlikely to be. Two of three hydroelectric powerhouses in the area have been shut down because of the fire, the commission said, but the city has been able to make up the difference through buying power on the open market. On Friday, officials issued voluntary evacuation advisories for two new towns — Tuolumne City, population 1,800, and Ponderosa Hills, a community of several hundred — which are about five miles from the fire line, Forest Service spokesman Jerry Snyder said.

(An excerpt from Boston Globe article, October 2011 “The Path Less Traveled) In 1978, a young newspaper reporter in northernmost New Hampshire wrote an editorial calling for the creation of a grand hiking trail spanning the length of Coos County, from the White Mountains in the south to the Canadian border. The young man, Kim Nilsen, dreamed of opening this remote part of New England, dense with natural wonders but scant on people, to new eyes. His plan was bold. It was sweeping. And it elicited absolutely no response. So he set out to build it himself. Two weeks ago (2011), under a misty fall sky just a few miles from the Quebec border, Nilsen, now 63, finished his 162-mile trail. It had only taken 33 years. As the last maple sapling was cut, Nilsen produced a bottle of champagne and addressed the small group of volunteers who had come out to help clear the final see next page The Unitarian Universalist Society of Laconia 172 Pleasant Street • Laconia www.uusl.org • 524-6488 “Gospel” Means “Good News” A Four-Part Seminar on Reformed Theology You are Invited to Visit Our Brand New Facility at 72 Primrose Dr. South, Laconia, NH (Industrial Park - Across from Aavid) Inspiring Message • Contemporary Music Children’s Classes 6 mos - 5th grade “Revolution” Teens We are a Welcoming Congregation Worship Service 9:00am Sunday August 25th Discussion Theme: “Living in the hut we call the self” Facilitator Leader: Glenn Smith Wedding Chapel Available What would chocolate chip cookies be without the chips?

The kids then picked their final treasures from the prize bin, choosing one item for every five books read. A total of 1532 books were devoured by budding bibliophiles and special recognition and awards went out to the top five readers: Bruce Archibald, brother and sister Becca and Ethan Turgeon, and sisters Harper and Nora Hartshorn. All the children received certificates from Pizza Hut for a personal pan pizza, and all children who pick up their list of books read and present it to Dipsy-Doodle will receive a free ice-cream. from preceding page mile of what he has named the Cohos Trail. “This is cheap champagne for a cheap organization,’’ Nilsen said with a big smile as a blast of bubbly splattered onto the autumn leaves around him. And with that, his “ridiculous, foolish’’ idea had finally come to fruition, though it is much more than a personal accomplishment. The Cohos Trail is the largest trail system to be built in the northeast in generations, and it becomes the third long-distance trail in New England, alongside the Appalachian Trail and Vermont’s Long Trail.

Finally, there were over a hundred residential homes sales in one month in the towns covered by this report. There were 110 in July, to be exact, at an average sales price of $299,469. This may not be exactly a watershed moment in the Lakes Region real estate world, but it has been a long time since this happened. Last July there were just 70 sales at an average price of $260,113 so that’s a healthy 57 percent increase. Year to date sales of residential homes are up 13 percent with 556 sales through the end of July compared to 491 for the same period in 2012. The average sales price for the first seven months of the year comes in at $283,536 which is a just a bit lower than the $286,898 for the same period last year. Despite all the news reports on TV of the real estate market getting hot and prices increasing, it should be noted that real estate is a very local phenomena. While some areas may be seeing big bumps in selling prices and multiple offers, that just isn’t happening in the Lakes Region. If you are thinking of listing your home to sell, don’t get all excited thinking you can ask more for your property than you could a year ago. It is still a buyer’s market in this neck of the woods and may be for some time. The good news is that the total number of residential sales has increased and that should help whittle down the inventory. As usual, most of the high end sales last month were waterfront properties. There were, however, some pretty nice homes off the water that found new owners. Some took a while longer to sell than others, though. Take, for example, the property at 141 Riverwood Drive in New Hampton. This custom contemporary cape was built in 2004 and has an amazing, high quality 7,187 square feet of living space with all the bells and whistles. There is a gourmet kitchen featuring gorgeous cabinetry, high end appliances, granite counters, a great room with the requisite stone fireplace, a first floor master suite, four guest bedrooms, and a man cave over the garage that most guys can only dream about. This home was listed way back in June of 2009 for $699,000 and has been on the market every year since. It was relisted this year at $579,000 and had several price reductions down to $399,000. It finally sold at a higher price at $455,000. I expect there might be a long story about why it sold higher than the asking price, but it cannot be anywhere near as long as the 1,179 days it was on the market. The home is assessed at $761,080 so I’d say the buyer got a great deal. A Victorian with a contemporary flair at 1525 NH Route 140 in Gilmanton, NH also sold last month. This 4,745 square foot beauty was built in 2002 and has three bedrooms, two and a half baths, gourmet kitchen, two fireplaces, master suite, den, bonus room, custom woodwork, and more. It was originally listed at $590,000 in December of 2009 and was on the market 270 days then. It came back on the market in April of 2012 for $485,500 and sold for $404,900 after another 417 days on the market. Time and (less) money fix everything. This home is currently assessed at $495,520. A spectacular, custom built 4,868 square foot contemporary at 32 Harvest Run in one of Gilford’s most desirable neighborhoods also found a buyer after 291 days on the market. This high quality home left little to be desired with its great floor plan, gourmet kitchen, granite countertops, beautiful oak trim and flooring, fireplace, sun room, media room, and a spacious first floor master suite plus four guest rooms upstairs. This home was listed at $660,000, reduced to $599,900, and sold for $550,000 after 291 days on the market plus another 118 days under contract. This property is assessed for $495,500. Obviously, the quality was recognized by the buyer. Up in Gunstock Acres in Gilford, a mountaintop retreat at 30 Ridgeline Loop also took almost a year to sell. This 4,505 square foot, three bedroom, two and a half bath contemporary home was built in 1985 and is spectacular but the amazing panoramic views undoubtedly sold this home. The home has a gated entrance (no, not on the front door, in the driveway!), a great room with cathedral ceilings, exposed beams and fireplace, an upscale kitchen with granite counters, birch flooring, beautiful natural woodwork, master suite, gym, sunroom, and large deck overlooking the lake. There’s also a two car detached carriage house plus an attached five car garage just in case. This is a home to entertain in and the party won’t stop if the lights go out because a whole house generator ensures that you can party on. This home was listed for $849,000, was reduced to $799,000, see next page Residential 524-3316 - DAN DUNN PERSONALIZED PAVING $ AL 200 OFF L HARMA N Pheasant Ridge Golf Club White Mountain Country Club Country Club of NH Play All 3 Courses on One Single Pass!!

I’ve written a version of it that addresses the growing danger posed by older drivers who should no longer be driving. For political reasons, I suspect the chance of any meaningful legislation being passed is slim. The only hope is for people to read this and realize that, yes, unfortunately, it applies to them. An unsafe driver is a danger to everyone on the road, the sidewalk or in a restaurant. A few years ago, a senior driver plowed into a crowd at a farmers’ market, killing 10 and injuring 70. When I took Drivers’ Ed as a teenager, they gave us a copy of “Dead at Seventeen” at the end of the course. Perhaps the AARP could hand out this essay at their Driver Safety courses or adult children can give this to their parents. -- Paul O. Ketro, M.D., Massachusetts General Hospital, Instructor in Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston Killed at Seven I am in agony. He is a statistic. He is one of many, many others whose bodies are as badly mangled as his -- their category is called “Killed by Senior Drivers.” The day I killed him was an ordinary day. How I wish that I had taken the bus. But I was too good for the bus. I remember how I ignored my adult children, who begged me not to drive anymore. I said, “All of my friends drive. I want my independence. I want to be my own boss.” I don’t remember how the accident happened. The last thing I recall was that a younger adult passed me -- he seemed to be going so fast. I guess I was just kidding myself by thinking that if I only drove slowly and on familiar streets, I could still drive safely.

My vision isn’t that great anymore -- but I can renew my driver’s license by mail, so my vision doesn’t get checked very often. I felt a bump on the car, and I heard a scream. Then the boy hit my windshield, and I ﬁnally noticed him. Glass ﬂew everywhere. Suddenly it was very quiet. The boy was lying on the road, his body mangled. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Then there were sirens. The ambulance arrived, and they pulled a sheet over the boy’s head. Hey! Don’t pull that sheet over his head! He’s only 7! He has a ball game this afternoon. He was supposed to have a wonderful life ahead of him. He hasn’t lived yet. He can’t be dead. His mother was there. She was heartbroken. His father came out, too -- they’re my neighbors. He suddenly looked very old. I told the police ofﬁcer that the gas pedal had gotten stuck -- because that’s what older drivers often say when they hit someone. It’s a small town, and everyone is in a daze. People see me and look away. No one can believe it. I can’t believe it, either. I’ve read about older drivers who plow into crowds, but I never thought it would be me. Please, somebody -- wake him up! I can’t bear to see his mom and dad in such pain. Please don’t bury him! He’s not dead! He has a lot of living to do! He wants to laugh and run again. Please don’t put him in the ground. I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, I won’t drive again. All I want is one more chance. Please, God, he was only 7.

You’ll pick up a new skill such as one of these if you say “yes” to today’s unusual request. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re still deciding whom you can trust. Take your time; there’s no rush. Furthermore, the one who tries to make you believe there is a rush is the least trustworthy of the group. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The one who limits questions is not being generous. There is too much information, and much of it will slip past if you don’t bother to inquire. So bother. Inquire! CANCER (June 22-July 22). Keeping to yourself will be limiting. But do you dare to join that group of laughing, talking strangers? You have more in common with this group than you think, but you’ll never know until you break in. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The skills you apply every day are so much a part of who you are that you don’t even recognize them as anything special. But someone will point out to you today that you have more skills than you think. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People may act in thoughtless ways, but it only takes one strong leader to bring up the level of the whole group. Your example will have an effect, and you will truly be an asset to your community. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just because it’s your nature to weigh all of the options doesn’t mean you always enjoy the process. Tell anyone who is trying to speed the process that you have a prodigious mind and won’t easily make it up. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Deception is a strain on relationships. Those who deceive each other will not be satisﬁed in each other’s company. This is one of the many reasons why you’re in love with truthtelling even if it stings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Like an expert magician, you’ll take charge of directing people’s attention toward the colorful distractions so you can handle the business that Today’s Birthdays: Actor Kenny Baker (“Star Wars”) is 79.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). While it’s important to have an intelligent plan, it’s more important to make your move. Thinkers may hesitate too long. It’s the person who acts who will make it to the goal. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Today, attractive deals can be as infatuating as attractive people. Your interest will be piqued by the idea of raising your lifestyle to a new level. Take time with this decision. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).

Fortunately, you’ll come across knowledge that you can apply immediately. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 24). With your ﬁghting spirit, you’ll take on sizeable challenges.

Frates will be presenting a lecture / demonstration entitled See For Yourself, which is also the title of his new DVD collection and book which is being released for the Holiday Season. They emphasize the importance of being a sensitive viewer regardless of the medium being used. Photographers and artists utilize the same senses, design principals, and organizational techniques. This lecture is intended to bridge the gap between these two types of visual communicators with the hopes of inspiring each to collaborate more with the other. Frates graduated from The Massachusetts College of Art and Design, with concentrations in Printmaking and Art Education. He went on to complete his Master of Applied Aesthetics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and received an Advanced Graduate Certiﬁcate from Aberdeen College in Scotland during his Fulbright Exchange year representing the USA in the Orkney Islands. He is a member of the Fine Arts adjunct faculty at Southern NH University and a Graduate School Clinical art supervisor at Plymouth State University. Frates paintings have been exhibited at the Briggens Museum in Bergen, Norway, the Getty Gallery in Stromness, Scotland, The Smithsonian in Washington, DC to mention a few. His works are in the Royal Art Collection and the Central Bureau of Exchanges in London, England and his caricatures and political cartoons can be found in the Forbes collection NYC.
