John Lewis rides from coast to coast for Bike Week BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — “My wife says I haven’t got a good side, except my backside when I’m going away,” said John Lewis, a traveling man of 70 on his fourth visit to Motorcycle Week from San Bernadino, Calif., a round trip of nearly 7,000 miles. see RIDE page 4

Man charged in strangling on McGrath Street BY GAIL OBER


LACONIA — A Laconia teen has been charged in the overnight strangling death of a man who lived in the same support home at 24 McGrath Street. Kasey Riley, 19, is charged with one count of second-degree homicide for recklessly causing the death of Zachary March, 27. A statement to media issued by the N.H. Office of the Attorney General said city police were called to the home at 1:42 a.m. Monday

where they found an unresponsive March. He was later declared dead at the scene. Riley was also in the home. He is being held at the Belknap County House of Correction and is scheduled to appear by video arraignment in the 4th Circuit Court, Laconia Division this morning at 10 a.m. According to Genesis Behavior Health Director Maggie Pritchard, 24 McGrath St. is one of two of her agency’s support homes in Laconia. She declined to comment spe-

cifically on either Riley or March other that to confirm they both lived there. She said a “support home” differs from a “group home” in that a “support home” provides homes for people who might become homeless and have some kind of emotional or mental disability. A “support home” has programs but not 24-hour supervision. A “group home,” said Pritchard, has 24-hour supervision. “It has not been a group home for nine years,” Pritchard said. see STRANGLING page 3

Mandela in serious but stable condition

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Nelson Mandela was in serious but stable condition in a Pretoria hospital for the third day Monday with a recurring lung infection, and a foundation led by retired archbishop Desmond Tutu described the 94-yearold anti-apartheid hero as an “extraordinary gift” to South Africa. As family members visited South Africa’s first black president in the hospital, the government announced — in only the second communication on Mandela since he was hospitalized on Saturday — that his condition was “unchanged.” A statement issued for the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation described Mandela as “the beloved father of our nation” and offered prayers for a man seen by many around the world as a symbol of reconciliation because of his peacemaking role when white racist rule ended in South Africa. Mandela “once again endures the ravages of time in hospital,” said the Cape Town-based foundation.

Secrets leaker has options to stay in Hong Kong HONG KONG (AP) — The American defense contractor who says he leaked information on classified U.S. surveillance programs could benefit from a quirk in Hong Kong law that would ensure a lengthy battle to deport him. Edward Snowden’s whereabouts were not immediately known on Tuesday, although he was believed to be staying somewhere in the Chinese autonomous region that has a well-established, Western-

style legal system inherited from its status as a former British colony. The journalist who brought his revelations to the public, Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian, said he had been in touch with Snowden, but declined to say whether he was still in Hong Kong and said he didn’t know what his future plans were. “He hasn’t communicated a plan to me. I don’t know if he has a plan,” Greenwald told

Senate passes farm bill that expands subsidies for insurance WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate on Monday passed a five-year, half-trillion-dollar farm bill that expands government subsidies for crop insurance, rice and peanuts while making small cuts to food stamps. The bill passed on a bipartisan 66-27 vote. The legislation, which costs almost $100 billion annually, also would eliminate subsidies that are paid to farmers whether they farm or not. All told, it would save

about $2.4 billion a year on the farm and nutrition programs, including across-the-board cuts that took effect earlier this year. Senate Agriculture Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., said the bill would support 16 million American jobs, save taxpayers billions and put into place “the most significant reforms to agriculture programs in decades.” But it would still generously subsee FARM BILL page 8

STRANGLING from page one Pritchard said there are eight people living in the house and four of them — including Riley and March — were home at the time of the alleged homicide. She said four residents were away. There are three apartments in an attached building behind the house but she said the people who live there were not asked to leave by police. She said the house was cleared by police during the investigation and the six people who live there all found places to stay with friends or relatives until they could return home. She said there are counselors in and out of the home on a daily basis and all residents have to participate in counseling and services and obey house rules that she said are numerous but include no non-prescribed drugs or alcohol. She said the people

living in the house share a kitchen, living room and bathrooms but many have their own bedrooms. Little is known about Riley or the motive behind the alleged strangulation. The most recent entry on his Facebook page is from June 2 when he posted “rumor has it I’m a dad.” His page is filled with references to farming and guns and his most recent background picture is a Confederate battle flag. There is one recent picture of him holding a rifle with the hammer pulled back. Riley identifies himself in a posting as a redneck who is proud to be called as such and in another posting as lonely. He said he graduated from Gilford High School in 2012. A sergeant with the Gilford Police said his department is familiar with Riley but declined further comment. A woman who lives on McGrath Street said she didn’t hear anything but noticed all of the activity when she woke yesterday morning at 7:30 a.m. She said the building has been some kind of communal home since before she moved in but has noticed some changes in the past few years to include more traffic — including pedestrians and cars. “I don’t think it’s a supervised as it could be,” she said. She also said there has been some unusual activity in the neighborhood included the attempted burglary of a

home on the corner of Belknap and Lyford Streets. Other recent reports from the area include a few attempts at breaking into cars. Yesterday the street was quiet. While crime scene tape surrounded the main part of the house and the state police crime van was backed into the driveway, there was but one Laconia Police officer standing by to keep

small groups. Due to a forecast of poor weather conditions, the ceremony was moved from Opechee Park into the nearby Middle School gymnasium, where the bleachers were filled with family members and friends of the 130 graduates. Senior class officers Andrea Selesky and Hannah Fortson took to the stage to welcome Class of 2013

and introduce the members of the Laconia School Board. Their short introduction ended with samples of their infamous cheesy humor, and the podium was then handed over to LHS Principal Jim McCollum for the formal welcome address. His remarks began with hearty congratulations to the graduates, which lead into a brief recognition of retiring teachers Jim see next page

RIDE from page one A retired machinist nicknamed Grumpy by a waitress in Lytle Creek, California, Lewis began riding motorcycles as a teenager in Ohio. “I took my brother’s Whizzer out, “ he said, “until he caught me.” he bought his own Whizzer in 1958 and three years later was aboard his own 1940 Harley-Davidson Knucklehead. For the past 24 years Lewis has ridden a 1989 HarleyDavidson Springer Soft Tail, which has taken him across the country eight times. “The bike’s on its third speedometer,” he said. Apart from his four journeys to Laconia, John Lewis has ridden his 1989 Harley-Davidson Springer Soft Tail across the country eight times. Lewis has made seven (Michael Kitch/Laconia Daily Sun photo) to the rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, but his one trip to Daytona was police told me to move. I didn’t buy a patch, a pin or abbreviated. “I went once and didn’t even spend a T-shirt. I just left.” the night,” he said. “Everywhere I went to park the Lewis rides alone. “Ride with a group and you get a

lot of cry babies,” he explained. “There’s always someone who doesn’t like this gas station or that restaurant.” Nor does he follow set routes or hurry his trips. “I go wherever I feel like turning,” he said, adding that he likes to pass through small towns and stop at family restaurants. “I’m always getting lost,” he confessed. Looking askance at those who tow or trailer their motorcycles to rallies, Lewis asked “what’s wrong with them? Can’t they ride? If you can’t ride your bike, you might as well as stay in your dadgum car,” he snorted. Likewise, he refuses to wear a patch, pin or T-shirt touting any place unless he has been there. Lewis said that his wife, Ruthie, has not been on his motorcycle in 15 years. After completing a riding course with the California Highway Patrol, she repeatedly asked to ride his Sportster and just as repeatedly he refused. When she asked why, he told her he had taken out a $100,000 insurance policy on her life that would not be effective for six months. With that, she never asked again. Lewis has had better luck with Justine, the daughter he and his wife adopted as an infant who is now twelve, “She wants to ride,” he said. On June 18, Lewis will turn 71, though the sign at Cedar Lodge where he is staying has already celebrated the occasion. Age and arthritis in a once broken leg is catching up with him, Lewis conceded, but he did not rule out returning to Laconia, which he called his favorite rally because “it’s the furthest away and I can do it. I’m doing all I can while I can,” he continued. “If I can make it, I’ll try.”

LACONIA — Members of the High School Class of 2013 received their diplomas during the 135th Commencement Exercise on Saturday morning. Keynote speaker and former School Board Chair Marge Kerns urged the graduating seniors to not only believe in themselves but also in the power of

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, June 11, 2013— Page 5

from preceding page Chase, Scott Davis, Steve Snow, and Ed Fellona. A standing ovation was given to these remarkable teachers, who have dedicated many years of their lives to students at the high school. Taking the stage to receive awards of excellence were Susannah O’Brien, the Class of 2013 valedictorian, Jasmine Blais, the 2013 salutatorian, and Andrew Kerns, the 2013 Class Essayist. O’Brien and Blais were presented with the valedictorian and salutatorian bowls, and Kerns was presented an inscribed silver plaque. While receiving their awards, McCollum congratulated the top three students for their remarkable achievement that was earned through their studiousness and upholding of academic excellence. Tate Aldrich, an English teacher at LHS, provided a heartfelt and informative introduction for valedictorian O’Brien. Aldrich praised O’Brien for her remarkable academic achievements as a student, which include drum major, Student Council president, a member of National Honor Society, and recipient of the Bausch and Laumb Science award, the Harvard Book award, and the John Philip Sousa award. Aldrich concluded by stating O’Brien was unique not only in her outstanding achievements, but also in her willingness to “eagerly carry the weight of the world on her shoulders.” O’Brien began her speech stating she was attempting to follow the advice of her church choir director to, “Be brief, be brilliant, be gone!” She emphasized the importance of a strong communal foundation, on which our society should be built. Instead of striving to be the next Bill Gates, she encouraged her classmates to become the best mother, father, tradesmen or teacher that they possibly could be. O’Brien further challenged her classmates to emulate their parent’s and role models in the community, so that one day they too can be the heroes of the next generation. Keynote speaker Kerns focused on the importance of believing in oneself no matter what stage of life one is in. She urged the Class of 2013 to believe

in the positive impact of small groups, as positive thoughts produce results. Kerns claimed this “positive juju” is a key component to succeed in life. She concludes by encouraging the students to learn from their mistakes and always daring to dream. Each speaker of the ceremony congratulated the Class of 2013 on their scholastic accomplishments,

and as members of the community. Answering the question School Board Chair Joe Cormier posed during his address, “Who am I? Who do I want to be?”, one can take from the ceremony that each student should strive to be the foundation of the community, because, as O’Brien stated, the “foundation of home does not shake.”

A new kind of war A very long time ago I read a book that I believe was entitled “The Feather of an Eagle”. The reason for that name was that the eagle was killed by an arrow that was guided by a feather that the eagle had lost. The story was about a different kind of war, a citizen’s war in which they attacked the government military by night, and folded back into routine society by day. Some would call it guerrilla war. No uniforms. No generals directing waves of troops. No tanks or heavy artillery. No airplanes dropping bombs or strafing troops. Simply citizens stealthily destroying the dominant army of the government, and doing so with hand made devices or the tools that were available. I liken that story to what is happening around the world today. A single person can attempt to blow up an airplane with a “shoe bomb”. Another can be caught with a car full of explosives aimed at blowing up a portion of mid-town New York. A domestic terrorist can use a truck filled with fertilizer to explode outside a federal building, killing 168 innocents. A teen aged immigrant and his 26 year old brother can wreak havoc on a major metropolitan area, a state, and the nation, with their home made bombs killing and maiming fellow citizens. A single soldier, a (physician) major in the Army, can kill 13 fellow soldiers and wound more than thirty others. The only thing in common for most of those people is their religion, and their desire to deny our freedoms and impose their way of life. The problem is not confined to the United States . . . it is world wide. Western countries try to figure out how to cope with immigrant populations that are growing so rapidly, that it is becoming a pitting of their youth against the aging populations of their host countries. And, the activities get more brazen every day as we witness a near beheading of a 25 year old British soldier, in the street, close to his barracks. Surprisingly, what had been proudly worn as a symbol depicting a defender of freedom, British soldiers are now told not to wear their uniforms in public lest the new populations to their country take offense. Our country watches as nations in the mid-east undergo, or are undergoing revolutions to depose dictatorial regimes. In most cases, the ensuing governments have not brought peace and stability, but have created a combination of theocratic dictatorships and anarchy. Christians are murdered, or are tar-

geted and beaten, and driven from their homes, many fleeing across borders to other countries in search of a safe haven. Threats against our ally Israel are mounting. In Egypt, on the anniversary of 9-11, we watched as mobs attacked our embassy and we listened as they chanted, “We are one and a half billion bin Ladens”. Their defiant chant countering a political slogan, “bin Laden’s dead, General Motors is alive.” Other mobs attacked our embassies and consulates, desecrating our flag, defacing our facilities, and murdering our representatives. Our leaders tell our would be rescuers to “stand down” and not attempt to save any and all possible. And then our leaders attempt to defend their actions with a shameful series of lies. But they are exposed. No one knows where the president was during all of this . . . and he’s not telling! In his recent speech at Fort McNair, ( blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/05/23/ read-president-obamas-speech-onthe-future-of-the-war-on-terror/) the president told us that the war against terror is unsustainable. He split hairs when, in the speech, he said that we have not had a successful attack by “al Qaeda” in this country since 9-11. Of course, the victims of the shooting at Fort Hood, or their surviving family members, would take issue with that al Qaeda nuance, as would the family of the soldier killed at the recruiting station in Little Rock, Arkansas, and the families of those killed and wounded by the Boston bombers. Are terrorist attacks only to be counted when they’re inflicted by certified al Qaeda members? While we hear some acknowledgement of individual acts of terror, we hear virtually nothing about how this new kind of war will be addressed. Will we establish some form of monitoring for those here on student visas? Those who never attend a class? Will we revert to old time immigration rules where a newcomer has to have a responsible resident sponsor who will be accountable for them? In a free and open society, built around the Bill of Rights, how do we ensure that the millions of aliens in our midst are not here to do us harm? Are there those among the millions of immigrants who fancy themselves as an army of one? Just how do we deal with this new kind of war? Truth may be a start. (Bob Meade is a Laconia resident)

LETTERS Sen. Ayotte stabbing U.S. in the back with immigration stance To the editor, Sadly, Senator Ayotte will join Senator Shaheen in stabbing New Hampshire and U.S. citizens in the back by supporting amnesty for illegal aliens. Comprehensive Immigration Reform, despite some positive sounding provisions (which history shows won’t be implemented), benefits the politicians, special interest groups, and illegal aliens at the expense of already overtaxed, over-victimized, and underemployed Americans. They say this bill isn’t amnesty, but it rewards people for disrespecting our country and breaking our laws, that is amnesty! They say many requirements must be met before illegal aliens get any benefits. Who goes to jail if the “requirements” aren’t enforced, if the fines and taxes are waived, or if illegals get federal means-tested welfare? No one. (Note, they can get taxpayer provide state, local, and apparently federal non-means tested welfare. The attempt by politicians to mislead Americans on this is despicable!) They say hundreds of thousands of illegals will be subject to deportation. Millions are subject to deportation today, but it’s not happening! They say the administration has

to certify that certain things happen before the process begins. This administration has repeatedly lied to the American people and Congress (e.g., Obamacare, Benghazi, the IRS, surveillance of Americans and the media); only a dunce would trust them. Both parties have lied to us about immigration, in the 1960s, 1980s, 1990s, and the 2000s with the border fence. Remember, we only have an illegal alien problem because politicians failed to keep their promises and enforce our laws. The American people have little trust in our politicians because they repeatedly show themselves to be untrustworthy. Our politicians don’t listen; a vast majority of Americans has repeatedly said “NO!” to Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Politicians can earn our trust by listening, fulfilling your campaign promises, and by enforcing existing immigration laws (Close the border with Mexico!). Until then, Congress, the Executive Branch, and the Judiciary have earned and deserve our disdain, disrespect, distrust, and complete opposition to Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Numbers matter, join the Freedom Ride to Hesky Park on Thurs. To the editor, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, American Soldier, American son . . . POW. . . captured June 30, 2009, Afghanistan. Faith, trust, truth, responsibility and accountability are now and have always been more important than “Thank you for your service!”. Twentyfive years of Thursday evening POW/ MIA Awareness Vigils. First started to bring awareness to the Vietnam Live POW issue and at that time the statement was made, “to ensure that those in the future, in service to our country who may find themselves in the hands of the enemy, could be assured that those of us at home would do everything possible to keep the light burning and make sure that all would accept the responsibility and accountability to bring them home..alive!” Over the years even the terminology has been changed to MissingCaptured from POW! That is neither

being responsible or accountable. The return of remains does not bring truth to this issue. If Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is to come home it may very well take the “groundswell’ of support of the American people that was said needed to bring all those home from Vietnam and past wars. If it was YOUR son what would YOU do? What would you hope for? This Vigil and Freedom Ride is an opportunity to show his family in Hailey, Idaho that they are not alone and America does care and at least those of us in NH and the Northeast are aware and do care. Doing Nothing is NOT an option. Freedom Ride line up at Lowe’s (Gilford) parking lot by 6 p.m. Thursday. Vigil, Hesky Park (Meredith) at 7 p.m. . . Focus is Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, American POW. No fly-over this year. . . sequestration. . . your leadership at work! Responsibility and accountabil see next page

LETTERS To what extent should county home be considered profit center? To the editor, Generally, I refrain from jumping into letter writing “food fights”, but the recent letters by Paula Trombi have led me to do so. Ms. Trombi seems to believe that when four Belknap County representatives voted against approving additional nursing home funding of $200,000., they did so out of either pure meanness, total stupidity, or both. The county commissioners and the nursing home director believe they can use the $200K to attract an additional $400K in Medicare revenue, thereby providing a $200K profit for the county. That profit alone, tells an incomplete tale. Those short term physical, occupational, and speech therapies are high profit services that the county commissioners want to profit on, but doing so will take business away from the open market of health care providers. Is the county nursing home supposed to be a profit center? Should the Belknap County Delegation (the eighteen State Reps) encourage the county commissioners to actively pursue Medicare short term rehabilitation folks and thereby directly compete with marketplace providers? If such expansion is to be allowed, should limits be imposed? What are the long term downsides of such expansion? During several delegation meetings, the county commissioners said this effort would be for just a “few” Medicare patients”, “maybe five or six patients”, well, “maybe up to eight patients”, and then on June 3rd, hinted that the number would not go “above 10 at any time”. How much will it grow if it continues for many years? Will it become such a moneymaker they will want to expand the nursing home to allow for more profits? The delegation was told that the nursing home normally has spare beds and these Medicare patients will not require any new staff or any physical expansion. I viewed such projec-

tions with a jaundiced eye, doubting they would hold true in the long run. Since actual data is not available, it seems reasonable to take some mental excursions as to what could, or even might, become reality. First, if the nursing home now runs with a persistent “free bed” level of six to 10 beds, but could fill those beds with Medicare folks without expanding staff, does that mean it is currently overstaffed? If not, at what point would a continually “full bed” nursing home start triggering some combination of increases in kitchen staff, housekeeping, maintenance, overtime for current staff, or more floor space. Because of the turmoil the delegation and the commissioners have had for the last six months, I felt that it was necessary to, if not bury the hatchet-to at least lay it down for a few months, so I voted with the majority to fund the Medicare expansion for this year, only. But, I mentioned then and restate now, that I intend to investigate this issue statewide, and try to present a fuller explanation to everyone before the delegation is called on again to approve such funding. However, I fully understand and greatly appreciate the position taken by Representatives Burchell, Cormier, Sylvia, and Worsman and believe that their free market position should be the one we all strive to reach. I hope that during the next few months we, as a delegation, can get all the facts out in the open, and clearly articulate them for ourselves, and for all of the voters of Belknap County. I also know that Representatives Burchell, Cormier, Sylvia, and Worsman are dedicated, serious, and intelligent lawmakers who are very committed to doing what is best for Belknap County. I strongly disagree with Ms. Trombi’s message and tone. Representative Herb Vadney Belknap District 2 Gilford-Meredith

N.H. casino owner would take profits away to another state To the editor, “Government is instituted to provide services to its citizens.” This statement by two elected state officials is quite extraordinary, the two apparently haven’t read the New Hampshire Constitution or the history of its people. The government of N.H. was instituted first and foremost to protect the rights of the citizens and its Constitution written to protect the citizen from its government. Written 230+ years ago — read it. As far as chicken charading, perhaps the state officials ought to copyright the idea, sell it, give the income to the state services they are so concerned about. Charades is a word guessing game. The form most played today is to use physical rather than verbal language to convey the meaning to another party. Charading is from preceding page ity? It’s up to the American people. . . us. . . Numbers matter! Bob Jones, N.H. Director Northeast POW/MIA Network Meredith

an app one can purchase at an Apple Store. Chicken charading might possibly be some sort of slander indicating one might give an indication of what one wants and then run from and or hide before they either have finished giving their clue or before the other party has stated their guess. “On purely partisan grounds”, a phrase often used by Democrats when non-Democrats aren’t being submissive, is never heard from them when they’re in control and ignore the same non-Democrats. Or to indicate they and not the other party have passed a bill meant to help the “people” — not necessarily the taxpayer. Something every state and voting taxpayer needs to wake up to is that there is no such thing as government revenue, especially federal revenue. The government doesn’t earn money, and the federal government doesn’t print money, it’s only authorized to coin money. It’s the non government entity referred to as the Federal Reserve which prints and circulates paper money. They have in the last three years printed $2 trillion and are see next page

City Council gets mixed message on plan to rebuild Opechee Park House By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — City Councilors who questioned budgeting $110,000 to rebuild the Opechee Park House got a mixed message from residents at a public hearing last night. The park houses were originally constructed by the city and leased to the park associations, which in turn rent them to civic and social organizations as well as families and individuals for meetings and functions. The associations apply the rental income to the upkeep of the park houses. Tim Dunleavy, president of the Opechee Park Association, told the council that the group has not only maintained the park house for nearly 80 years, but also raised funds for equipment on playgrounds throughout the city. “It’s your decision,” he said. “We are not a demanding group. But, without the park house there is no mission for us.” He said that before the building was found structurally unsound and closed in 2010 the association numbered about 25 members, but since has dwindled to a dozen. “If you were born and raised in Laconia,” Dunleavy said, “you’ve spent many hours in Opechee Park.” He was echoed by Martha Chandler, who recalled attending any number of social and sporting events in the park, which she described as “a peoples’ park. Yes,” she declared. “It’s worth the money.”

Ward Peterson of Belmont and Sandy Grant of Gilmanton, speaking for the Belknap Bowmen, an archery club which has met at the park house for more than 50 years, said that without it they would have no place to go. The group holds indoor archery competitions and Peterson said the building was an ideal venue. But, Tom Cosma said that since 1961, when the middle school was built, the park has been steadily encroached upon. With the park house gone, he said that the view of the park and the lake was enhanced. “I’m afraid of putting another thing up to plug up the park,” he said. “I don’t see this as a wise use of money.” Although he did not speak last night, earlier Kevin Dunleavy, director of Parks and Recreation, said that before requesting funding to rebuild the park house from the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) Committee he determined “there is sufficient demand for use of a park house and a strong enough organization to manage it to justify reconstruction.” The CIP Committee ranked the park sixteenth among its priorities. Dunleavy said that the $110,000 represented the cost of materials, explaining that students from the building trades program at the Huot Technical Center, together with a number of contractors and tradesmen, have volunteered their labor.

‘No Wake’ order issued for Silver Lake

BELMONT — The N.H. Marine Patrol has issued a “No Wake” order on Silver Lake pursuant to RSA 270:132. The order will remain in effect until the lake water levels recede below 467.00 inches above sea level. The gauge at the Department of Environ-

mental Services, Silver Lake station will be used to make the official determination. The Marine patrol urges all boaters to be aware of the wakes and use caution when operating in the channels or close to shore.

CENTER HARBOR, N.H. (AP) — Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash in Center Harbor, N.H. WMUR-TV reports (http://bit. ly/16Pmwle) the driver died at the scene. He’s been identified as 27-year-

old Robert Curtis of Canaan. Police said the crash happened on Daniel Webster Highway on Sunday night. They say a preliminary investigation suggests speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.

PILL from page 2 and Drug Administration has told the maker of the pills to submit a new drug application with proposed labeling that would permit it to be sold “without a prescription and without age or pointof-sale prescriptions.” The FDA said that once it receives the application it “intends to approve it promptly.” Last week, an appeals court dealt the government a setback by saying it would immediately permit unrestricted sales of the two-pill version of the emergency contraception until the appeal was decided. That order was met with praise from advocates for girls’ and women’s rights and with scorn from social conservatives and other opponents, who argue the drug’s

availability takes away the rights of parents of girls who could get it without their permission. Advocates for girls’ and women’s rights said Monday the federal government’s decision to comply with the judge’s ruling could be a move forward for “reproductive justice” if the FDA acts quickly and puts emergency contraception over the counter without restriction. Annie Tummino, lead plaintiff in a lawsuit over unrestricted access to the morning-after pill and coordinator of the National Women’s Liberation, said women and girls should have “the absolute right to control our bodies without having to ask a doctor or a pharmacist for permission.”

Two file for City Council in Ward 2 Laconia man robbed for second time on Church Street LACONIA — Police are investigating the second robbery of the same man on Church Street. The latest robbery was reported to police on Sunday at 5:20 p.m. Capt. Matt Canfield said the 60-year-old man, told them two white men in their 20s assaulted him and took an undisclosed sum of money. He said the man went to the nearby Laconia Spa to report the robbery and was bleeding when police arrived. Canfield said this is the second time the same man had been robbed. The first robbery was reported to police at 6:50 p.m. on June 5 by what three

while males in their 20s. The victim was unable to describe the men and wasn’t able to tell police if they were the same men or different ones. Both robberies occurred on or near the Church Street Bridge. Canfield said police are actively investigating both robberies and ask that anyone who has any information or who may have witnessed either robberies to call the Laconia Police at 524-5252, the Greater Laconia Crime Line at 524-1717 or go to and leave a tip on the website. — Gail Ober

In a story about a controversy in Gilmanton that was published on Saturday, June 8 it was implied that former Selectman Rachel Hatch had expressed her disapproval at the April 15 selectman’s meeting of the practice of appointing people to public boards

in a non-public session. Hatch was at the meeting to tell the board about an award the town won, but it was former selectman Betty-Ann Abbott who expressed her disappointment in the board’s appointment policies.

FARM BILL from page 2 sidize corn, soybeans, wheat, cotton, rice, sugar and other major crops grown by U.S. farmers. The legislation, similar to a bill the Senate passed last year, would also set policy for programs to protect environmentally sensitive land, international food aid and other projects to help rural communities. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, said Monday that his chamber will take up its version of the farm bill this month. Debate in the House is expected to be contentious and much more partisan than in the Senate, with disagreements over domestic food aid that makes up almost 80 percent of the bill’s cost. Last year, the House declined to take up the legislation during an election year amid conflict over how much should be cut from the food stamp program, which now serves one in seven Americans and cost almost $80 billion last year. That cost has more than doubled since 2008. The bill approved by the House Agriculture Committee last month would make much larger cuts to food

stamps than the Senate version, in a bid to gain support from those House conservatives who have opposed the measure. The Senate bill would cut the food stamp program, now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, by about $400 million a year, or half a percent. The House bill would cut the program by $2 billion a year, or a little more than 3 percent, and make it more difficult for some people to qualify. In his statement Monday, Boehner signaled support for the House bill’s level of food stamp cuts, saying they are changes that “both parties know are necessary.” Other Republicans are expected to offer amendments to expand the cuts, setting up a potentially even more difficult resolution with the Senate version. On the Senate floor, senators rejected amendments on food stamp cuts, preserving the $400 million annual decrease. The bill’s farm-state supporters also fended off efforts to cut sugar, tobacco and other farm supports. Senators looking to pare back subsidies did win one victory in the Senate, an amendment to reduce the government’s share of crop insurance premiums for farmers with adjusted gross incomes of more than $750,000. Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Tom Coburn, R-Okla., said their amendment would affect about 20,000 farmers. Stabenow argued the amendment would result in fewer people buying insurance and undercut a separate provision in the bill that would require farmers buying crop insurance to comply with certain environmental standards on their land. Currently the government pays for an average 62 percent of crop insurance premiums and also subsidizes the companies that sell the insurance. The overall bill expands crop insurance for many crops and also creates a program to compensate farmers for smaller, or “shallow,” revenue losses before the paid insurance kicks in.

Correction: former selectman was critic of Gilmanton’s appointment policies

from preceding page purchasing upwards of $85 billion of U.S. debt every month. So when we are told that the Republicans of the state are “passing up an infusion of billions of dollars” it is really being said that they refuse an illusion. As far as the casinos go, those running and establishing the casinos will retrieve all building/operational cost, state and local taxes and fees, which will be in the billions, and then take the profits out of state. Does N.H. actually have that kind of money to dispose of? Perhaps the state liquor stores ought to be extended to build and operate casinos? At least the money would stay in state. G.W.

LACONIA — Two candidates have filed for the City Council seat in Ward 2 opened by the retirement of Matt Lahey — Richard Beaudoin of Manchester Street and Mark Templeton of Lyman Street. Beaudoin challenged Lahey in 2011, but in an election marked by very low

turnout was beaten 103 to 44. Templeton, a technical service engineer with Electronics for Imaging, Inc. of Meredith, is making his first bid for the council. — Michael Kitch

Tebow reportedly signing with Patriots

Tim Tebow may still have a future in the NFL after all. The New England Patriots seem to think so and plan to sign him on Tuesday if he passes a physical. He won’t be a starting quarterback, of course, with Tom Brady on hand in Foxborough. But certainly he’s an intriguing reclamation project — yet another chance for coach Bill Belichick to torture the New York Jets, who failed to find a role for Tebow last season. And that could make for quite a Boston Tea-bow Party. A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Monday that Tebow will join the Patriots’ minicamp on Tuesday and sign with the team, pending the medical exam. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement had been made. Even when Tebow signs, there is no guarantee he will play for the Patriots. ESPN first reported that Tebow would sign with New England. Former Broncos general manager Ted Sundquist sees the logic in the move. “If you can find a club that’s mature enough to handle it as an organization, then you’re going to find the right spot for him,” Sundquist said. “What I mean by that is all the media mania and that sort of thing. The club says, ‘Look, this is the reason we’re bringing him on. We feel he can bring X, Y, Z and A, B, C to the table.’ Explain it to Tim, explain it to the media, explain it to your fan base and explain it to your organization.” That description seems to fit New England perfectly. One of the NFL’s most polarizing players, Tebow spent a lost season in 2012 with the New York Jets, playing sparingly behind struggling starter Mark Sanchez. Some fans thought he got a raw deal and deserved more of a chance; others thought he lacked the skills to be a pro quarterback. He was released in April with barely a shrug — hardly the ending most Jets fans envisioned considering his superhyped welcome to the Big Apple. Tebow won two national titles at Florida and was a first-round draft pick in 2010 by Denver. As a rookie, Tebow threw just 82 passes in nine games, starting three. But in 2011, he started 11 games, throwing for 12 touchdowns and six interceptions, and took the Broncos to a wild-card win over Pittsburgh before an AFC divisional playoff loss to New England, 45-10. Despite the Broncos’ playoff run, he was traded to New York the following

offseason when Denver signed Peyton Manning. Tebow threw only eight passes for the Jets, completing six, ran 32 times for 102 yards and was used mostly to protect the punter. “Unfortunately,” coach Rex Ryan said in a statement when Tebow was released, “things did not work out the way we all had hoped.” The Patriots have Ryan Mallett as the backup to Brady; they released QB Mike Kafka on Monday. Asked if Tebow had signed, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said, “I do not anticipate any additional transactions to announce tonight.” Tebow’s NFL career appeared over when the Jets couldn’t trade him at draft time and wound up cutting the left-handed quarterback, who won the 2007 Heisman Trophy. But now he is headed to New England, where the man who drafted him as coach of the Broncos, Josh McDaniels, is an offensive assistant under Belichick. And apart from winning Super Bowls, Belichick likes nothing better than sticking it to the Jets. He’s had a running feud with Ryan for nearly four seasons, in part because Ryan once said he wasn’t hired to kiss Belichick’s rings. Belichick was Jets coach for one day in 2000, infamously resigning with a hand-written note. He soon joined New England, and has been regularly beating the Jets for more than a decade. Revitalizing Tebow’s career would be another big step toward humiliating New England’s archrival. Tebow has been criticized for his throwing motion but has said he wants to play quarterback, not switch positions. Still, the Patriots might need help at tight end after Rob Gronkowski underwent a fourth operation for a broken forearm and faces back surgery. At 6-foot-3 and 236 pounds, Tebow has the size to play that spot. Belichick values versatility in his players, having used wide receivers Troy Brown, Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater at defensive back when injuries hit that position. Belichick also has been willing to gamble on players discarded by other teams. Some have succeeded, like wide receivers Wes Welker and Randy Moss and running back Danny Woodhead. Some haven’t, including wide receiver Chad Johnson and defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth. The media circus that surrounded Tebow in Denver and with the Jets also could be minimized by Belichick, who keeps a tight lid on players’ interactions with reporters.

TSA agents stop Chewbacca actor for cane shaped like light saber DENVER (AP) — Not even Chewbacca and his light saber get a free pass with airport security before being cleared to travel. Transportation Security Administration agents in Denver briefly stopped “Star Wars” franchise actor Peter Mayhew recently as he was boarding a flight with a cane shaped like one of science-fiction’s most iconic weapons. Airport officials say they wanted to inspect the huge walking stick before allowing Mayhew, who is more than 7 feet tall, on the plane. Mayhew tweeted “Giant man need giant cane” from his verified Twitter account when the incident happened June 3. He also posted photos showing a TSA agent holding the replica laser sword, which comes up to his chest. Many subsequent media reports made it seem as though security offi-

cials buckled to pressure from Chewie’s fans in allowing the actor to board the flight to Dallas with the cane, but officials say that characterization is inaccurate. “Because of the unusual weight of the passenger’s cane, a security officer alerted a supervisor. Less than five minutes later the passenger and cane were cleared to travel. Social media played no role in the determination,” the TSA said in a brief statement released to The Associated Press on Saturday. There was no word on whether agents were initially suspicious that Chewie had a weapon more commonly associated with other “Star Wars” characters, including Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and Yoda. Attempts to contact Mayhew, 69, for comment — or roar — were not immediately successful.

Good turnout for airport’s open house BY ROGER AMSDEN FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

GILFORD — When Laconia Airport Manager Diane Terrill woke up early Saturday morning and it was raining she said she felt like crying because it would have marked the second straight year of rainy weather for the airport’s open house. But by mid-morning the sky had cleared, bringing a big smile to her face and the faces of exhibitors and members of the public who showed up for the Wings, Water and Wheels event. Last year’s event drew 500 despite the weather and Saturday’s was on track to at least double that according to Terrill, who said that the threat of rain kept away a few exhibitors who might otherwise have shown up. Those who did show up got to see some unique seaplanes, vintage cars and trucks and experimental aircraft. Among the biggest attractions was a 1946 Grumman Widgeon, a twin-engine amphibious aircraft owned by David DeVries of Windham, president of the New Hampshire Pilots Association, who has owned it for three years and says that he flies it every week, weather permitting. The airplane is actually a ‘’Super Widgeon’’, one of about 70 which had the original 200 horsepower engines replaced with 270 hp (201 kW) Avco Lycoming GO-480-B1D flat six piston engines, and various other modifications, including modern avionics, 3-bladed propellers, larger windows, improved soundproofing and emergency exits installed. DeVries, president of Martel Electronics, said he see next page LEAKER from page 2 to fly to another country which, unlike Hong Kong, does not have an extradition agreement with the United States. Even if an extradition request is brought by the U.S., Snowden could contest it on grounds of political persecution in a process that could drag on for years. In addition, Hong Kong’s high court in a ruling on a case concerning three African asylum-seekers ordered authorities to devise a unified standard for assessing asylum applications. The ruling effectively puts applications on hold until the new system is in place. Jen Psaki, a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, refused to say Monday whether the U.S. had made an extradition request or might do so in the future. Under the terms of its handover from British to Chinese rule in 1997, Hong Kong maintained its independent legal system, a boisterous media, and strong civil society that would likely object boisterously to any attempt to railroad Snowden through the legal system. And though a semi-autonomous part of China, it ultimately answers to Beijing, which is often at odds with Washington. Greenwald said he wasn’t clear about exactly how Snowden made the decision to come to Hong Kong, but said simply evading the U.S. authorities wasn’t the only factor he considered. “It’s very difficult for me to assess that choice because it was a very personal mix of factors that he took into account when deciding where he wanted to go, so if his only goal had been how can I best evade arrest, there probably would have been other better places for him to go,” said Greewald. Greenwald said The Guardian plans to publish further stories based on information provided by Snowden. The U.S. and Hong Kong routinely cooperate on requests to transfer criminals; in one high-profile case, Hong Kong extradited three al-Qaeda suspects to the U.S. in 2003. The U.S. is also one of the largest investors in Hong Kong, a major business center for East Asia, and at least one local politician said she thought it best if Snowden simply left.

A Grumman Widgeon, which many will recognize from the opening scenes of the television series Fantasy Island, was on display at an open house at Laconia Airport Saturday. (Roger Amsden photo for the Laconia Daily Sun)

from preceding page flew in the aircraft from Haverhill, Mass., and that the weather cleared while he was en route. The Widgeon is famous for its appearance in the opening scenes of the television series ‘’Fantasy Island’’ delivering guests to the island and it was called ‘’Ze plane! Ze plane!’’ by actor Hervé Villechaize, who played the role of Tattoo. Singer Jimmy Buffett owned a G-44 Widgeon, which he crashed while attempting to take off from waters off Nantucket, Mass., in August of 1994. The aircraft was damaged but Buffett was able to swim to safety. Another aircraft attracting a lot of attention was a Yakovlev Yak-52 , a Soviet primary trainer aircraft which is owned by Valentin Milchev of New Hampton and sports the distinctive red star of Soviet Air Force on its tail. Milchev, a physician at Lakes Region General Hospital, says he has

been flying for about 15 years and has owned the airplane for about eight years. A descendant of the single-seat competition aerobatic Yakovlev Yak50, the all-metal Yak-52 is powered by a 268 kW (360 hp) Vedeneyev M14P 9-cylinder radial engine and is noted for its aerobatic capabilities. ‘’It’s a good aircraft, quite capable,’’ says Milchev, who sometimes takes the plane to aerobatic competitions. ‘’I fly when I can. It’s really just a hobby,’’ he says. Terrill said that the open house is designed to show people that the airport is not only a transportation hub, but also serves as a center for aeronautic education programs like WinnAero as well as flight training with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, and instruction from two onsite, or fixed-base, operators: Emerson Aviation and Sky Bright.

What is a Periodontal Examination?

If your dentist recommends that you have a periodontal (perio) exam you need to GET IT DONE! Starting with a review of diagnostic xrays, the exam includes measurements of pocket depth (how far the gum has pulled away from the tooth), mobility (how loose the tooth is), furcations (problems where the roots of a multirooted tooth join together), and recession (how much gum shrinkage has occurred). The measurements indicated by these tests and other observations allow the dentist to make a diagnosis that describes the condition of the tissues that support your teeth. There are many kinds of “gum problems”, but most of them involve damage to the bone that holds the teeth. This is caused by germs that infect the gums and then spread into the bone, slowly rotting it away. This usually happens without pain! The germs then spread throughout your bloodstream every time you chew your food. This infection can cause damage to your cardiovascular system in addition to premature tooth loss. Gum disease does not go away on its own – you need professional dental care to diagnose it, treat it, and monitor your response to therapy. A perio exam is easy and good for you – why risk tooth loss and serious health problems due to undiagnosed gum disease? Dr. Felt has 2 years of post-doctoral specialty training and over 25 years of experience with treatment of gum disease – experience you can trust. George T. Felt, DDS, MAGD 9 Northview Drive 279-6959

The network will be meeting today from 2-4 p.m. at the UNH Cooperative Extension Service office on Main Street in Laconia, above Greenlaw’s Music store.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may not think of yourself as having more creativity than others, but that’s not the point. It’s the kind of creativity you have that makes you a special artist. Your “art” will surprise people today. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don’t rush into anything today. You haven’t fully absorbed the lessons of your most recent journey yet. Slow down. Collect different options, and resolve to decide at a later date -- for instance, June 15th would be good. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The endpoint of one assignment is the start of another. Work on mastering this part of your work instead of rushing into a “newbie” position on what’s next. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 11). You really have it together this year. You have a clear vision of what you want and a financial plan, too. July brings a professional opportunity. August and September feature family teamwork, and by October, you will have changed your domestic scene considerably. In 2014, education introduces you to love. Sagittarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 32, 44, 48 and 11.


HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). You could make more disciplined choices, but for some reason, you are giving yourself more leeway. You may feel like you’ve done enough and now it’s your turn to take it easy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a gentle charm and no real agenda. People sense that you don’t need or want anything from them, and it puts them at ease around you. They want to be closer to you and to be included in your world. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You believe in constant improvement, but your idea of what’s better may clash with another person’s now. Sometimes tampering with what doesn’t need fixing is called “breaking it.” CANCER (June 22-July 22). Of course you need nurturing and love, but you prefer it in small doses these days. You are suspicious of anyone who pays too much attention to you now. Also, you cherish your time alone. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Someone has given you a tall order, and it’s quite within your capabilities. But do be careful of what you ask of others. What’s easy for you may seem unreasonable to someone else. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re like a sponge soaking up all the information now. You’ll learn much about the world and your community and also about what’s on the minds and in the hearts of those near and dear to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have a general sense of curiosity, anticipation and excitement even though you’re not sure where it’s coming from or where it’s going. By the end of the day, all will be revealed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Can shoes make you feel clever? Can a beloved T-shirt give you confidence? Maybe it’s the feeling with which you endow an item that gives it power, but today’s events will make a strong case for inherently lucky charms. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The way you care about something will be contagious. Others around you will pick up on your enthusiasm and start to care as much as you do.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, June 11, 2013— Page 23

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Tuesday, June 11, the 162nd day of 2013. There are 203 days left in the year. Today’s Highlights in History: On June 11, 1963, in one of the most shocking images of the Vietnam War era, a Buddhist monk, Thich Quang Duc (tihk kwang duk), set himself afire on a Saigon street to protest the government of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem (noh deen dyem). (The scene was captured in a Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph taken by Malcolm Browne of The Associated Press.) On this date: In 1509, England’s King Henry VIII married his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. In 1770, Captain James Cook, commander of the British ship Endeavour, discovered the Great Barrier Reef off Australia by running onto it. In 1776, the Continental Congress formed a committee to draft a Declaration of Independence calling for freedom from Britain. In 1913, football coach Vince Lombardi and opera singer Rise Stevens were born in New York City. In 1919, Sir Barton won the Belmont Stakes, becoming horse racing’s first Triple Crown winner. In 1938, Johnny Vander Meer pitched the first of two consecutive no-hitters as he led the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-0 victory over the Boston Bees. (Four days later, Vander Meer refused to give up a hit to the Brooklyn Dodgers, who lost, 6-0.) In 1942, the United States and the Soviet Union signed a lend-lease agreement to aid the Soviet war effort in World War II. In 1962, three prisoners at Alcatraz in San Francisco Bay staged an escape, leaving the island on a makeshift raft; they were never found or heard from again. In 1971, the year-and-a-half-long occupation of Alcatraz Island in San Francisco Bay by American Indian activists ended as federal officers evicted the remaining protesters. In 1977, Seattle Slew won the Belmont Stakes, capturing the Triple Crown. In 1987, Margaret Thatcher became the first British prime minister in 160 years to win a third consecutive term of office as her Conservatives held onto a reduced majority in Parliament. Ten years ago: A suicide bomber killed 16 victims in a Jerusalem bus blast; two Israeli rocket strikes against Hamas fugitives killed 11 Palestinians in Gaza City. Pioneering broadcast journalist David Brinkley died in Houston at age 82. Five years ago: President George W. Bush, during a visit to Germany, raised the possibility of a military strike to thwart Tehran’s presumed nuclear weapons ambitions; Chancellor Angela Merkel joined Bush in urging further sanctions against Iran if it failed to suspend its nuclear enrichment program. For his part, Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Bush a “wicked man.” One year ago: Testimony began in the trial of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, accusing of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years. (Sandusky was later convicted and sentenced to at least 30 years in prison.) Rafael Nadal won his record seventh French Open title, defeating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5. The Los Angeles Kings won their first NHL championship, beating the New Jersey Devils 6-1 in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals.

Page 24 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Tuesday, June 11, 2013


Dear Annie: My son’s ex-wife has reported him to child protective services six times and to the police for various things she’s invented over the past three years. Due to her false accusations, he has been arrested three times. He has been found innocent of all charges, but she persists. She charged him with violating a restraining order and appeared in court last week flanked by bodyguards supplied by victim services. This charge was thrown out. My son has never touched her, but she has convinced many people that he is dangerous. She is such a good liar that she actually believes her own stories, which makes her even more convincing. My son has become so paranoid, he barely leaves his house. He is so depressed that he can barely function and is unable to work. She is slowly killing him. Is there anything he can do besides continue to defend himself? The lawyers’ costs have become a nightmare for our whole family. There must be something more we can do besides waiting for her next dramatic step. -- Worried Family Members Dear Worried: Your son may need to go on the offensive. What his ex-wife is doing is harassment, and he should ask his lawyer about suing her. He also can search for a divorce support group in his area or online and get into low-cost therapy for his own well-being. He needs to get his life back. Dear Annie: My dear friends’ daughter recently married. When she first got engaged, she announced a small wedding, and I offered to make silk flowers. I do this professionally and had most of the supplies. Months later, it turned into a huge event. I also was in the middle of a major move. I agonized over finding the exact color and got frustrated when I needed to do more flowers than I had originally planned. I also had to buy additional supplies because what I had in mind wasn’t acceptable to the

bride. Since I had moved, I needed to find new suppliers. I spent hours running around and emailing the bride about her specifications. I knew it was going to cost me hundreds more than I planned, so several months before the actual wedding, I opted out of attending. I was newly unemployed and simply could not afford it. But I found the perfect “bling” that the bride wanted and sent the flowers to her. I never received so much as a thank you. Her last email was, “Are you still coming?” I refused to answer. Not once did she ask, “How are you?” So Bridezilla had her day, and now my friend is not speaking to me. Was I wrong not to attend? I told my friend I wasn’t coming. -- The Friend Who Wasn’t There Dear Friend: You are never obligated to attend a wedding unless you are a participant. And your flowers were a lovely gift for which the bride should have thanked you and over which she undoubtedly drove you nuts. However, when the bride asked whether you were coming to the wedding, it was rude of you to ignore her email. Perhaps if you apologize first, the friendship can recover. Dear Annie: To “Frustrated Daughter-in-Law,” whose mother-in-law doesn’t get out and do things, has it ever occurred to her to ask her mother-in-law to go with her to these places? I am a widow, and after a lifetime of having someone with you, it is hard to do things by yourself. I prefer having someone I know go with me, but no one wants to be bothered taking me anywhere, so I sit at home. If she would take her mother-in-law to these places, Mom could see how much fun it could be, perhaps make a friend and then take it from there on her own. -- Fort Myers, Fla.
