Convention, commission still at odds over budget By RogeR aMsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Belknap County Convention huddled behind closed doors Monday night with the attorney they hired to represent them in their dispute with the Belknap County Commission over the authority of the two bodies concerning management of the county budget.

The non-meeting came after County Convention members spent a long day at the Belknap County Complex starting with a 2:30 p.m. tour of the County Corrections facility, a 4 p.m. Executive Committee meeting followed by public hearing on a Gunstock Area Commission request for a $750,000 revenue anticipation note and lengthy discussions over the budget

authority dispute and the county jail situation. The closed-door session with attorney David Horan lasted for a half hour. The convention hired Horan, a former assistant county attorney in Hillsborough County, by a 9-7 vote on April 17 after several months of wrangling with the commissee COUNTY page 6

Water ski racers recall fast times on Winnipesaukee, Winnisquam By RogeR aMsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The 2nd annual Water Ski Boat Classic held at Opechee Point on Saturday offered a chance for veteran water ski racers from the 1960s and 1970s to share their memories of those exciting high speed races. ‘’We used to race five weekends a summer

on Lake Winnipesaukee on Saturdays and Lake Winnisquam on Sundays ,’’ said Frank Cook, who brought along some vintage wood water skis to the event. ‘’We’d go out from the Weirs on Saturday morning and then race on Winnisquam on Sunday.’’ He recalled that the first three races of the summer were 32 mile events, followed by a 50 mile race and a final 65-mile race.

‘’We used to make our own water skis,’’ said Cook, who recalled that many of the skis used for racing were actually made right in Laconia at the Northland Ski factory on Fair Street. The event was organized by Tom Scribner, who said that he’s had a lifelong passion for boats and used to water ski all the see WATER SKI page 11

Air Force nuclear unit fails security test

WASHINGTON (AP) — An Air Force unit that operates one-third of the nation’s land-based nuclear missiles has failed a safety and security inspection, marking the second major setback this year for a force charged with the military’s most sensitive mission, the general in charge of the nuclear air force told The Associated Press on Tuesday. Lt. Gen. James M. Kowalski, commander of Air Force Global Strike Command, said a team of “relatively low-ranking” airmen failed one exercise as part of a broader inspection, which began last week and ended Tuesday. He said that for security reasons he could not be specific about the team or the exercise. “This unit fumbled on this exercise,” Kowalski said by telephone from his headquarters at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., adding that this did not call into question the safety or control of nuclear weapons at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. “The team did not demonstrate the right procedures,” he said, and as a result was rated a failure.

Gov’t. sues to block merger of American & US Airways DALLAS (AP) — American Airlines and US Airways expected to spend this week cruising toward completion of a merger that would create the world’s biggest airline. Instead, they were stunned Tuesday when the federal government and six states sued to block the deal, saying it would hurt competition and cost consumers hundreds of millions of dollars a year in higher fares and extra fees. Antitrust regulators had done little to interfere with other big airline mergers in the past five years, including Delta-North-

west and United-Continental. So, they were not expected to stand in the way of American and US Airways. But this latest deal would leave four airlines controlling more than 80 percent of the U.S. air-travel market. “By further reducing the number of legacy airlines and aligning the economic incentives of those that remain, the merger of US Airways and American would make it easier for the remaining airlines to cooperate, rather than compete, on price and service,” the lawsuit said. The Justice Department turned the

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel released 26 Palestinian inmates, including many convicted in grisly killings, on the eve of long-stalled Mideast peace talks, angering families of those slain by the prisoners, who were welcomed as heroes in the West Bank and Gaza. Buses carrying the inmates departed the Ayalon prison in central Israel late Tuesday, a nighttime release that was aimed at preventing the spectacle of prisoners flashing victory signs as has happened in the past. Relatives of the victims, many with their hands painted red to symbolize what they say is the blood on the hands of the inmates, held protests throughout the day, and some protesters tried briefly to block the buses from leaving. The decision to release the men stirred anguish in Israel, where many Israelis view

them as terrorists. Most of the prisoners were convicted of killings, including Israeli civilians, soldiers and suspected Palestinian collaborators, while others were involved in attempted murder or kidnapping. Celebrations erupted in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, where thousands of Palestinian well-wishers awaited the buses’ arrival. Palestinians generally view the prisoners as heroes regardless of their acts, arguing they made personal sacrifices in the struggle for independence. Fireworks lit the sky in Gaza, where rival Hamas and Fatah supporters, including several masked gunmen, celebrated to the beat of drums. Some danced while others flashed victory signs and waved flags of the Palestinian factions. Cars with loudspeakers blasted nationalistic songs.

words of US Airways leaders against them. The 56-page complaint filed in federal district court in Washington, D.C., was peppered with quotes from internal emails, investor presentations and public comments in which top executives noted that previous mergers had helped lead to higher fares and higher fees to check a bag or change a ticket. Shares of both companies plunged, and executives vowed to challenge the lawsuit. “We will fight them,” declared US Airways CEO Doug Parker, who would run the see MERGER page 9

NH mental health centers agree to managed care Plea deal does little to

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s community mental health centers have formed agreements to switch to a managed care system for Medicaid, more than a month after the state’s hospitals agreed to participate. The centers reached agreements with the three organizations in New Hampshire that have contracted with the state to manage the Medicaid system. Roland Lamy, executive director of the New Hampshire Behavioral Health Association, said

Tuesday the centers and the managed care organizations will continue to develop “a more robust and forward-thinking payment method that protects consumers needing essential community-based health services.” The state has been trying to move from a fee-forservice health model to managed care for its Medicaid clients. New Hampshire’s Medicaid program covers low-income children, parents with nondisabled children under 18, pregnant women, senior citizens, and people with disabilities.

TORONTO (AP) — Canada’s transportation agency is suspending the operating license of the U.S.-based rail company whose runaway oil train derailed and exploded in a Quebec town, killing 47 people. The agency said Tuesday it is taking away the certificate of fitness for the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway and its Canadian subsidiary, effective Aug. 20. The agency said it is not satisfied that the troubled company, which has filed for bankruptcy since the July 6 disaster, has demonstrated that its thirdparty liability insurance is adequate for ongoing operations. The parked train, with 72 tankers of crude oil, was unattended when it began rolling and derailed

in the center of Lac-Megantic. Several tankers exploded, destroying 40 buildings. The company has blamed the train’s operator for failing to set enough hand brakes. The agency said the disaster has raised questions about the growing use of rail transport for oil, including important ones regarding the adequacy of third-party liability insurance coverage to deal with catastrophic events, especially for smaller railways. “This was not a decision made lightly, as it affects the economies of communities along the railway, employees of MMA and MMAC, as well as the shippers who depend on rail services,” Geoff Hare, the agency’s chief executive, said in a statement.

relieve pain caused by hepatitis C outbreak

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — One man infected with hepatitis C hasn’t been able to return to work. Another won’t kiss his wife on the lips even though the blood-borne virus can’t be spread that way. A woman struggles with stress and fatigue. Another worries about exposing her grandchild. All are among the dozens of patients former hospital technician David Kwiatkowski is accused of infecting with the disease, and they were prepared to testify against him at trial. Instead, Kwiatkowski is scheduled to plead guilty Wednesday to 14 federal drug charges in New Hampshire in exchange for 30 to 40 years in prison. He will be sentenced later, probably in November, U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said Tuesday. Kwiatkowski has been jailed since his arrest in July 2012. His lawyers did not respond to email messages or calls seeking comment Monday or Tuesday. Originally from Michigan, Kwiatkowski worked in 18 hospitals in seven states before being hired in New Hampshire in 2011. A traveling hospital technician, he was assigned by staffing agencies to fill temporary openings around the country. Along the see KWIATKOWSKI page 12

Cheating in college — by admissions officers What is the most intellectually dishonest profession around? My nomination: the admissions officers at highly selective colleges and universities. Evidence in support of this comes from, of all places, a recent article in The New York Times. The writer is Ruth Starkman, and the subject is her experience as a reader of applications to the highly selective University of California, Berkeley. “Admissions officers were careful not to mention gender, ethnicity and race during our training sessions,” she notes. But when she asked one privately, “What are we doing about race?” she was told it was illegal to consider it, but that they were looking at “the ‘bigger picture’ of the applicant’s life.” Racial discrimination in state universities was made illegal in 1996 when California voters by a 55 percent margin passed UC Regent Ward Connerly’s Proposition 209. At first UC admissions officers enforced the law, as Richard Sander (a UCLA law professor) and Stuart Taylor report in their book, “Mismatch: How Affirmative Action Hurts Students It’s Intended to Help, and Why Universities Won’t Admit It.” The result was that fewer blacks and Hispanics were admitted to the most selective UC schools, Berkeley and UCLA, but more were admitted to and graduated from less selective UC campuses. But then admissions officers started to cheat. They declared that they were using “holistic” criteria, trying to gauge from students’ applications the “bigger picture” of their life. In practice, this meant racial discrimination in favor of blacks and Hispanics, and against Asians and whites Starkman’s job was to read applications and rate them on a numeric scale, with 1s being the most desirable. She “was told I needed more 1s and referrals. A referral is a flag that a student’s grades and scores do not make the cut but the application merits a special read because of “stressors” — socioeconomic disadvantages that admissions offices can use to increase diversity.” It’s not hard to imagine what “stressors” might include. A Spanish surname. A home address or high school in a heavily black neighborhood. An essay recounting “the hardships that prevented the student from achieving better grades, test scores and honors.” So the admissions officers were tipping the scale heavily in favor of certain students — and heavily against others. “When I asked about an Asian

student who I thought was a 2 but had received only a 3, the officer noted, ‘Oh, you’ll get a lot of them,’” Starkman writes. “She said the same when I asked why a lowincome student with top grades and scores, and who had served in the Israeli Army, was a 3.” What’s extraordinary about this is that you have an organization every member of which is well aware of its main purpose — illegal racial discrimination — but in which no one will say so out loud. A willingness to lie and break the law are job requirements. Now I am aware that there are arguments against a college just admitting the students with the highest test scores. It does probably serve some educational purpose to bring together people with different interests and different strengths. Preferences to offspring of alumni and talented athletes may be warranted for schools that need private contributions to thrive. But racial discrimination is unlawful and has been rightly repudiated by the American people. The corrupt silence concerning such discrimination in college and university admissions suggests that at some level these people know they are doing something for which they should be ashamed. Unfortunately they are doing their intended beneficiaries no favors. That’s proved beyond demur by Sander and Taylor’s “Mismatch.” Black and Hispanic students tend to drop out of schools when they find themselves less well prepared than their schoolmates. Those intending to major in science and engineering tend to back out of those fields. Many do not graduate yet are stuck with mounds of student loan debt. Meanwhile, there appears to be a ceiling on the number of Asians in selective private schools, similar to the ceiling imposed on Jews there from the 1920s to the 1960s. Just 19 percent of students at Stanford and 16 percent in the Ivy League are Asian — numbers that have remained static for two decades despite increasing numbers of Asian applicants. This is, in my American Enterprise Institute colleague Charles Murray’s phrase, “discrimination against hardworking, highachieving young people because of the color of their skin.” His word for it: “despicable.” (Michael Barone, senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.)

LETTERS Obama scandals are ‘made up’ by conservatives? Made up my foot To The Daily Sun, Wasn’t Fridays letter by L.J .Siden just filled with passion and emotion? I would also add, road apples! LJ insists we conservatives are persecuting poor Obama over, what, made up scandals and rumors proven not to be true? Who and when did they get proven not true by? Really now, “Fast and Furious” never happened? Benghazi didn’t see Ambassador Stephens murdered mutilated, dragged through the streets and left in a ditch, not to mention three security personal killed as well? I suppose L.J. is sticking to the story it was all the fault of some video no on ever heard of before the president invented that as a false narrative just before the election? Then of course there’s the polarizing the IRS, BATF, EPA, and half the rest of the departments in government to violate the rights of conservatives to ensure his reelection. Then his Attorney General Holder goes after the free press, wire tapping the AP, as well as a Fox News reporter and his parents and making a false assertion that the reporter was a “co-conspirator”. Then when Congress holds hearings all the presidents men, and women either can’t remember, don’t know, take the 5th, stonewall or say “What does it really matter after all this time?” Made up my foot L.J. I’d just remind L.J. of a few outstanding accomplishments of his beloved Marxist-socialist president. Broken promises from the day he was sworn in until present. Among those, an open and transparent administration. (Nearly everything he does is behind closed doors.) To bring Americans together and work with Republicans. (He has shut out all dissenting opinions.) Failed

to enforce federal laws on immigration, rules by presidential decrees, makes unilateral decisions without the inclusion or consent of Congress. He did promise to make the cost of energy soar and we have seen the price of gas, heating oil, and diesel fuel more then double during his tenure. (Oh thank you Mr. President we poor and elderly really benefit greatly from that.) And while energy prices go up so does everything else because the cost of energy effects every aspect of our lives. I could go on and on but that’s just the tip of this iceberg. This president has adopted the strategy of division by racial, ethnic, and gender means. We have a nation more divided today then in the last 40 years. His foreign policy is confused or non-existent, the middle east is in chaos, and revolt and terrorism rules. Is this the Arab spring he promised? Well done Mr. President! Now how about our economic recovery, kind of slow going isn’t it? But jobs are increasing he tells us. Parttime jobs are better then no jobs, unless the workers need their 40 hour jobs to make ends meet. Little things like that do make a difference in the lives of all those people he promised to help but hasn’t. In fact everything he has done has made things harder on the poor, elderly, sick, and disabled. This president is a disaster for this nation, and that’s my opinion Mr. Siden, based on the known facts of his presidency. I know progressives have a problem understanding the difference between the definition between opinion and lies, so I just thought I’d make that clear. Steve Earle Hill

LETTERS Tell the FDA that NH farms don’t need & can’t bear new regulations To The Daily Sun, I attended an informational meeting on August 7 at the UNH County Extension office in Boscawen on the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). I already knew the regulations were not going to be easy to understand, but I had no idea that it was 1200+ pages. This bill was signed into law in January 2011, cosponsored by Senator Judd Gregg, with a “yes” vote from Senator Jeanne Shaheen. As I sat listening, one farmer asked the question “What do any of these people (those from the FDA) know about farming in New England, let alone New Hampshire?” Do they even care about the devastating effects this will have on our beautiful state? Anyways, this bill is under the guise of protecting the consumer from their local farms. One farmer asked, “How many people have gotten sick from a New Hampshire farm?” The question was answered, “They just can’t write laws for New Hampshire, and people have gotten sick in New England.” So our two senators at the time voted for a bill that is now over 1200+ pages, and does not take into consideration New Hampshire farms, and we still do not know how many people have gotten sick from New Hampshire farms, if any. So many questions are still unanswered, that even our own N.H. Department of Agriculture and the UNH Cooperative Extension Offices do not understand it completely. One thing is for sure, as was discussed by some of the larger farms, some will choose to sell their farm, some will shut down their pick-your own operations, and some farms will stop selling wholesale, these are facts discussed by farmers if these rules are implemented in their entirety.

One farmer estimated his yearly cost to be somewhere between $13,000 and $30,000 just to comply with the paperwork requirements, then there is the water compliance aspect, and then there is the environmental impact, because they will not be able to spread manure within the mandatory time-frame to be compliant and will have to turn to synthetic fertilizers for their fields. So what happens to all that manure? Let’s not forget about the lost jobs. Many farmers enjoy donating extra produce to food pantries and charitable organizations, but they are already saying they will no longer be able to do this, because of the paperwork requirements. The FDA may be implementing this, but the state must enforce this mandate (which they do not have the resources to do). Who will pick up the additional cost to the state and the farmer? It is the consumer, and I thought food prices were high now. This bill is geared toward any farm that produces food/feed for human or animal consumption. The FDA will be at Dartmouth College on August 20 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for a listening session. The N.H. Department of Agriculture has some information about FSMA on their website index.htm as does the UNH Cooperative Extension http://extension.unh. edu/Food-Safety-Modernization-ActFSMA. The open comment period has been extended until November 15, 2013. I urge everyone concerned about the cost of food, the local farm, and the rural character of our state to contact their US delegation. Barbara Comtois Center Barnstead

NH officials have a duty to protect landscape from wind farm threat To The Daily Sun, Are New Hampshire’s mountaintops being targeted by Massachusetts politicians? Are Massachusetts politicians trying to outsource their renewable tax credits through New Hampshire land? This raises a good question: Are these industrial wind plants around Newfound Lake nothing more than outsourced renewable tax credits for Massachusetts? Is Massachusetts renting New Hampshire mountaintops as a way to achieve their renewable energy quota set forth by the federal government? And, if true, New Hampshire will need to double its efforts in building even more industrial wind plants — because it too has a federal quota to achieve. Newfound Lake alone has one active industrial

wind plant in Groton and three more applications for industrial wind power plants around the lake. Residents for and against these industrial wind power plants are now shaking their heads in disbelief and have mailed thousands of “enraged letters” to their elected officials. I don’t want to be thought of as an automatic naysayer, but where they infringe on our properties and threaten our watershed, we all have an obligation to be concerned. Are these projects intruding on our property rights due to the impact on property value and the fact that they remove happiness from our property? When people hear about the Bill of Rights in New Hampshire, the first thing people think of is the U.S. Constitution. But did you know there’s see next page

from preceding page nights, please stop in and purchase your tickets soon, they will not last. Napa Auto Parts, Greenlaw’s, All My Life Jewelers, Wedbush Securities, and Irwin Motors are all supporting us by selling the tickets.

LACONIA – One person was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital yesterday morning after her passenger car appeared to have been struck from the rear on Union Avenue. Police said her car was pushed into the car in front of her. Fire Department Lt. Dave French said the crash happened in front of Laconia High School just after 11 a.m. He described the woman’s injuries as non life-threatening. He said the cars were able to be

driven from the road and said all appeared to be headed in the same direction. He said both drivers in the two primary cars were alone and the man driving the pickup declined medical treatment. He said the passenger car didn’t appear to be badly damaged, but the pickup was towed. He said it sustained considerable front-end damage that ruined the radiator. — Gail Ober

COUNTY from page one sion over who has authority over line item expenditures. Convention Chairman Colette Worsman (R-Meredith) said during the Convention’s discussion of the budget Monday night that there were a total of 92 line items which have been moved in the budget that the convention submitted to the Department of Revenue Administration and that the budget which was submitted to the state was different from the one which was presented to the convention for the discussion at Monday’s meeting. She said that the commission had rearranged the budget and cited two examples, one of which was a $5,500 item for legal fees in the Register of Deeds budget which the Convention had intended to pay the legal bills which she had run up in her dispute with county commissioners over the management of her office. The other was a $50,000 reduction in the nursing home activities department which Worsman said had not been authorized by the convention. County Administrator Debra Shackett said that the $5,500 line in the Register of Deeds budget was not an official account and would not be paid and that the reduction in the

activities department line item was made by commissioners when they rearranged the budget to meet the $600,000 reduction the convention had made to the budget proposed by the commission. The convention and commission have been at odds over who has lineitem control over each and every item in the county budget, with the delegation asserting that it does have that power while the commission believes that authority is limited to the broad subtotals that define departments, such as the nursing home. ‘’The commission does not believe the convention has authority to create a line item,’’ said Shackett. Rep. Robert Greemore (R-Meredith) said it made little sense for the convention to work on the budget and then have the commission rearrange it.’’Maybe we should just give you a bottom line budget if that’s what you’re going to do.’’ Rep. Dennis Fields (R-Sanbornton) said that the budget process should work the subcommittees and that process wasn’t allowed by the convention’s leadership, leading to the current situation. The prospect of the dispute ending up in Superior Court troubles Rep. see next page

Equality of rights

Gunstock gets county OK for $750,000 revenue anticipation note BY ROGER AMSDEN

LACONIA — The Belknap County Convention has approved a $750,000 Revenue Anticipation Note for the Gunstock Mountain Resort by a 16-2 vote. The vote Monday night came following a presentation by Gunstock General Manager Gregg Goddard and members of the Gunstock Area Commission on the role played by the borrowing in allowing the county-owned recreation area to gear up for the upcoming ski season. Goddard said it was his 20th presentation to the convention on the RAN notes, which he said provide a short-term cash flow for Gunstock, which still receives 70 percent of its total revenue from skiing operations in a 100 day period from mid-December to late March, despite the addition of new summer attractions such as its longest in North America zip line and treetop adventure park. The amount sought has ranged from $625,000 to $1.2 million in recent years, according to Goddard, who said the $1.2 million was sought when the bridge over Poor Farm Brook was being rebuilt and there was going to be a lag time before federal and state reimbursements were received. He said that during the summer months Gunstock has spent $2.1 million preparing for the winter and will see a negative cash flow during the late fall until Christmas break skiing starts to produce positive revenues. Goddard said Gunstock’s budget is based on 168,000 skier visits a year, and that while the ski industry as a whole is not growing Gunstock has been able to retain loyal skiers and looks to increase the revenue from each customer in order to enhance revenues.

Unlike larger ski areas to the north, Gunstock, which is the closest large ski area to Boston and the fifth-largest ski area in the state, is based on the day trip market. He said that there is also a strong customer base of second home owners who are using their property yearround who ski at Gunstock, which also has an outreach program to area schools which brings in local skiers. Goddard responded to a series of written questions about Gunstock’s viability and profitability from the County Convention and said that Gunstock was in a sound financial position with profits in five of the last six years and assets exceeding liabilities. Asked if the need for a cash flow infusion will ever end, Goddard said hat it wouldn’t happen right away. He said Gunstock was trying to stabilize its reserve funds for operating and capital expenses and has a goal of $1 million for operations and $500,000 for capital expenses. Currently it has $20,000 in operating revenue reserve and $91,000 in capital reserve. He said that the operating revenue reserve account had risen to $700,000 before it was depleted by the virtually snowless winter of 2011. Gunstock continues to pay the county $175,000 per year based on the terms of a memorandum of agreement reached with the county which extends through 2016. Chuck Lowth, chairman of the Gunstock Area Commission, said there was no plan to increase that amount paid to the county. Goddard said that while it was good to build up operating cash to the point where there was no need for future RANs, that short-term borrowing at a cost of about $5,000 for a $750,000 RAN ‘’was not a bad thing to do. We shouldn’t be sitting on a lot of cash.’’

from preceding page David Huot (D-Laconia) who said that there was nothing more alarming to him than the prospect of county budget procedures being decided by a judge. ‘’The last person I would want to see setting the budget format is a Superior Court judge. They have no legislative experience or experience in county government.’’ said Huot. He said that he had tried to get support in the Legislature for putting together a bill which would address the flaws with county laws which the dispute had revealed but found no one willing to work with him. Rep. Jane Cormier (R-Alton) said

there was a lack of clarity in state laws dealing with county budget procedures and that she wished that it was different. ‘’How do we go forward without knowing which budget we’re working on? This is not the way to do business,’’ said Cormier. Greemore said ‘’what we have here is a mismatch because for the first time we sat down and looked at the budget. Rep. Herb Vadney said that any future requests from the County Commission for budget transfers should be turned down until the commission used the budget which had been approved by the County Convention.

Acting on instructions from the selectmen they offered him the opportunity to resign from the Planning Board or face removal proceedings. When the selectboard met a week later, on Aug. 1, Bartlett asked for an explanation of the charges against him. Terenzini claimed that he was informed of the circumstances when they met the week before and steadfastly declined to discuss the specifics of their meeting in public. However, Terenzini revealed that the selectmen decided, in part, to act on information presented by “outside people,” whose identity he has refused to disclose.

BELMONT — There were only 16 members of the Class of 1961 at Belmont High School and during Saturday’s Old Home Day celebration 14 of them showed up at the Main Street home of Janice Strople Sawyer for a class reunion. It was the first time in 52 years, ever since high school graduation night, that some of the former classmates had seen each other said Sawyer, who said that she got the idea for the reunion last winter. ‘’It was a January project to get me through the cold weather,’’ said Sawyer. ‘’I kept running into some of the members of the class at Market Basket and thought that it might be a good idea for all of us to get together. Well, eight months later, we did and it was a really fun gathering.’’ She said that remarkably all 16 members of Belmont High School Class of 1961 held a reunion on Belmont Old Home Day at the home of Janice the graduating class Strople Sawyer on Main Street.

90th Bike Week finishes in the black BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The 90th running of Motorcycle Week again returned a profit for the city as revenues of $164,007 topped expenses of $138,774 to yield a balance of $25,232. Since the rally was removed from the general fund budget and the special revenue fund was established in the 2006-2007 municipal budget, revenues from licensing, rentals, fees and concessions have totaled $1,247,518, which, less expenses of $1,111,378, leaves a current balance of $136,139. Expenses include not only the costs MERGER from page 2 combined company. Paul Denis, a Washington antitrust lawyer hired by US Airways, said Tuesday would be the Justice Department’s “best day” in the matter. “They got to hold their press conference. Now they’ve got to try their case in court,” he said. Tom Horton, CEO of American Airlines parent AMR Corp., said the companies had spent months trying to convince the Justice Department that the merger would help customers and boost competition by creating a tough new rival to larger airlines United and Delta. AMR has been operating under bankruptcy protection since Novemfrom preceding page privately rests with those whose reputations may be at stake, not with the selectboard.

These include police cruisers, fire apparatus and defibrillators. This year the cost of hosting the rally was less than the $160,950 budgeted. The expense of out-of-town police and overtime for local officers amounted to $76,329, compared to the $105,000 budgeted. On the other hand, at $17,455 the cost of trash collection was twice the $8,700 budgeted and a number of lesser expenses also exceeded projections.

It is forging ahead with an order for hundreds of new airplanes. The company had expected the highlight of this week to be a Thursday hearing in which a federal bankruptcy court judge would approve its reorganization plan, including the merger. That would be one of the final steps before AMR could exit Chapter 11 protection by the end of September. The hearing is likely to go ahead, and the judge could approve AMR’s turnaround plan on the condition that the Justice Department’s opposition is resolved. But AMR probably won’t come out of bankruptcy for at least a few more months while it fights the lawsuit, officials at the companies said. American and US Airways had been so confident of a quick merger that they had already named executives for the combined company, which was to be based at AMR’s headquarters in Fort Worth and called American Airlines Group Inc. Executives at Tempe, Ariz.-based US Airways have been house-hunting in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Veterans of Korean Conflict honored in ceremony in Tilton By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

TILTON — The Korean Conflict, too often known as America’s forgotten war, was remembered yesterday within days of the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended the bloodshed at the New Hampshire Veterans Home where 62 of its residents — eight of them women — who served during the war were commemorated. “It’s very humbling to see people who made sacrifices so long ago,” Army Lt. Col. Dennis Snelling began. He told the more than 100 veterans, many in wheelchairs, guests and caregivers that as he has traveled the country presiding at like ceremonies “the common refrain has been, ‘Don’t let the American people forget us.’” Snelling presented the veterans, including nearly a dozen from the Lakes Region, with a certificate hon-

oring and thanking them for their service, speaking briefly, snapping to attention and saluting smartly before each. As he approached several of those in wheelchairs rose to meet him and returned his salute. Those from the Lakes Region were Elaine Baker of Gilford, Arthur Brown and John O’Callaghan of Meredith, Robert Ball and Warner Desmarais of Wolfeboro, Norman Joyce, Richard Lemay, Howard Pease and David Pryor of Laconia, Alphonse Beaule and Vincent Mulligan of Belmont and Gladys Renoe of Alexandria. Pease noted that the ceremony recognized all those who served during the years of the conflict wherever they were stationed. He said that he spent two years in Germany manning 155 millimeter howitzers in a field artillery unit. Reflecting on the sacrifices see next page

WATER SKI from page one time during the 1970s. ‘’In the 1950s water skiing was the fastest growing recreational sport in the entire country and the Lakes Region was right in the thick of it. The 1954 national water ski championships were held right at Opechee Point and thousands of people showed up to watch. This is really a big part of our local history,’’ says Scribner. There were two major water ski clubs at that time, the Weirs Ski Club and the Winnisquam Boat & Ski Club, which organized the events. Larry Brown was the president and organizer of the Weirs Ski Club and ran Cove Craft, whose products included water skis. A New Hampshire Profiles magazine article from 1953 said the club would put on 13 shows during the summer and attracted audiences of thousands to Weirs Bay, Alton Bay, and Meredith, where they staged exhibitions both during the daylight hours and at night. Club members competed at Lake Placid in the 1952 nationals where Bill Goodhue won the Veterans’ Class in jumping, for men over 35, and was third in the Veterans’ Overall Championships. Jack Beattie and Dick Binette placed high in Junior Boys’ jumping, and Bill Trudgeon jumped off a tie for third place with Dick Pope Jr., in the Senior Men’s Division. One of the club’s girl skiers, Colleen Gallant, was chosen Miss New Hampshire, and went to the Atlantic City Beauty Pageant where she demonstrated water-skiing in the talent division, by means of color movies taken

on Lake Winnipesaukee. In the 1960s the emphasis shifted to high speed long-distance races with skiers like Brad Thompson and Gretchen Schwartzwelder leading the pack and those kind of races remained popular into the late 1970s when the sport gradually died out. Scribner says that the increasing boat traffic on the lakes and liability insurance concerns led to its demise. But the boats which were used like Magnums, Sidewinders and a Hydrostreams are still around, mostly 16 footers with 150 horsepower engines, although some had 200 horsepower according to Scribner. Ron Lien of Gilford, who was on the same race team as Frank Cook, says that he and Cook switched off on the Winnipesaukee and Winnisquam races from year to year and that he once reached 94 miles per hour on water skis while towed by a boat with a blown drag engine. On July 20 this year about a dozen water skiers got together for a run which took them from the Winnipesaukee Yacht Club dock in Gilford and around Parker Island, a 15-mile run, and Gary Cook, also a water ski racer, who was out with his Black Magnum race boat, saw his boat sink in 47 feet of water between Diamond Island and Tuftonboro Neck. ‘’I was lucky. A passing boater picked me up and stayed with the sunken boat. We got a crew together from Lakeshore Park and I dove down with others and we recovered it. It only took 45 minutes after we got it out of the water before we had the engine running,’’ said Cook.

from preceding page made and hardships endured by the forces in Korea, he eyed his certificate and said, “It doesn’t kind of seem right.” A video, produced by the government of the Republic of Korea, recalled the carnage and destruction of the war while expressing the gratitude of the Korean people to the men and women of the American armed forces who, together with their United Nation allies, repulsed the invasion by North Korea and checked the advance of Communist China. With liberation

and peace, Korea embarked on reconstruction and development and now ranks as the tenth strongest economy in the world. To the veterans of the conflict, the Koreans proclaimed “You will always be our heroes.” “I’ll be honest,” said U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, who represents the 2nd Congressional District, “I invited myself here today. She said that her uncle flew in the Korean Conflict and remembered “people didn’t talk about the Korean War.” She assured the assembled veterans, “We know your stories and we are grateful to all of you.”

Victorino seals Boston’s extra innings win in Toronto TORONTO (AP) — Shane Victorino hit a two-run single in the 11th inning and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2 on Tuesday night. Jarrod Saltalamacchia drew a one-out walk off Aaron Loup (4-5) and Will Middlebrooks followed with a single. Jacoby Ellsbury grounded into a fielder’s choice, with Middlebrooks forced at second and Saltalamacchia advancing to third. Ellsbury stole second before Victorino grounded a two-run single up the middle. Koji Uehara (3-0) worked 1 1-3 innings for the win as the Red Sox won for the ninth time in 13 games at Rogers Centre. Trailing 2-1, the Blue Jays tied it in the bottom of the eighth when J.P. Arencibia hit a leadoff home run off Junichi Tazawa. The homer was Arencibia’s 18th and his first since July 19. Of the eight home runs allowed by Tazawa this season, five have been hit by Blue Jays batters. Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Adam Lind and Jose Reyes have all connected off Tazawa. Arencibia’s blast spoiled a strong performance by Red Sox right-hander Ryan Dempster, who allowed one run and four hits in seven innings. He walked

two and struck out four. Recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to face the Red Sox in his first Blue Jays appearance since Aug. 2, Todd Redmond allowed three hits in 5 1-3 shutout innings. He walked one and struck out five. The Blue Jays opened the scoring in the fifth when Brett Lawrie hit a one-out double, went to third on a fly ball and scored on an RBI single by Arencibia, whose hit snapped an 0-for-23 slump. The Red Sox loaded the bases with one out in the sixth, but Toronto escaped when Brett Cecil struck out Mike Napoli and got Stephen Drew to fly out. Toronto’s Jose Reyes walked to begin the bottom of the sixth and went to second on Rajai Davis’ grounder. One out later, third base coach Luis Rivera waved Reyes around on a sharp single to right by Encarnacion, but Victorino made a strong throw to the plate to retire Reyes and end the inning. For Victorino, it was his eighth assist of the season. Having kept the deficit at one, the Red Sox took the lead with a two-run, three-hit seventh.

According to the plea agreement filed Monday, Kwiatkowski told investigators he had been stealing drugs for more than a decade and his actions were “killing a lot of people.” He wasn’t charged directly in anyone’s death, but the plea agreement says his actions played a “contributing role” in one person’s death. Hepatitis C can cause liver disease and chronic health issues. Instead, Kwiatkowski is accused of stealing painkiller syringes from Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab and replacing them with saline-filled syringes tainted with his blood. Forty-six people in four states in hospitals where Kwiatkowski worked have been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C he carries: 32 patients in New Hampshire; seven in Maryland, six in Kansas and one in Pennsylvania. One of the Kansas patients died. With his plea, Kwiatkowski will avoid criminal charges pertaining to patients outside New Hampshire. At least two dozen civil lawsuits related to his case are pending, most of them against Exeter Hospital. In New Hampshire, several of the patients have experienced serious health complications, according to the agreement. Though the patients aren’t identified by name, the

agreement describes the seven whose experiences formed the basis of the criminal charges. The five men and two women range in age from the 40s to the 80s. One remembers getting two doses of the painkiller fentanyl but not feeling much differently afterward. He now has trouble controlling his diabetes and sleeping through the night and is no longer able to travel for his job. Another patient had to delay surgery because of liver problems caused by hepatitis C and has seen his health deteriorate. A Navy veteran in his 80s has suffered significant fatigue, and his wife says he is so afraid of transmitting the disease that he refuses to kiss her on the lips. One of the infected women has sought mental health counseling to help her deal with the uncertainty of her diagnosis, and another is fearful of exposing her grandchild to the virus. A man in his 50s hasn’t returned to work since developing hepatitis C. He remembers interacting with Kwiatkowski during his procedure, and recalls that Kwiatkowski was sweating profusely. Of the seven patients, Kwiatkowski was assigned to assist with only two of their procedures. In four of the other cases, he was on duty but not assigned to the patients. In the remaining case, he came in on his day off and insisted on staying even though he was told he could go home, according to court documents.

SPACE FOOD from page 2 sunshine and wind on our faces.” The six researchers were selected by the University of Hawaii and Cornell University for the NASA-funded study to prepare meals from a list of dehydrated, preserved foods that are not perishable. They examined pre-prepared meals similar to what astronauts currently eat, and concocted meals themselves in an attempt to combat malnourishment and food boredom. Members did their cooking in a two-story dome with small sleeping quarters, an exercise room and

of course, a kitchen. Team commander Angelo Vermeulen said Tuesday the problem with ingredients that aren’t perishable is they’re usually highly processed and lack fiber. He said he was impressed with how freeze dried products taste very similar to fresh produce. But what is also important for future space missions is comfort food, he said. A favorite among the crew: Nutella, the chocolate-hazelnut spread. “It’s something we craved,” he said. “We had a limited supply so we had to ration it.”

Next in Squam Speaker Series: Why have white pines lost so many of their needles? HOLDERNESS — A speaker will discuss the health of white pines at the Squam Lakes Association Resource Center this Thursday at 7 p.m. for the Squam Speaker Series: White Pine Health. Martha Carlson, Ph.D. candidate at the University of New Hampshire will present a program on her research on why white pines have lost lots of their needles. Martha and her husband grow white pines and other trees in Sandwich. She’s been studying the impact of climate change on their sugar maples. And she coordinates a UNH research program regarding the impacts of ozone on white pines. School children across New England have been collecting samples of pines for 22 years. In 2011, for the first time, the students documented the dramatic loss of needles. Something shocked the pines in 2010. That made

them vulnerable to fungi and other predators since then. Martha will explain her theory about the initial stress on August 15. And she’ll talk about how the pines are recovering. The Speaker Series will continue on Wednesday, Aug. 21. The Holderness Conservation Committee and the Squam Lakes Association are sponsoring a talk on arsenic and drinking water which will be presented by Michael Paul, JD MPH from the Dartmouth Center for Environmental Health Services and Pierce Rigrod from the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services. Both programs will start at 7 p.m. at the SLA Resource Center, 534 Route 3, Holderness. Programs are free and open to all. For more information, please call (603) 968-7336 or visit

LACONIA — Irwin Automotive has taken steps toward making their sales area more ecologically friendly. The company says this move is consistent with its efforts to be more aware of energy efficiency, both in terms of the cars they sell as well as the area where they work. A recent renovation, which included complete paving of the facility and all new lighting fixtures, emphasizes their “green” ideas. GMI Asphalt of Belmont and Liberty Electric of Salem provided their

services for this updating and were extremely efficient and helpful and great to work with. The new lights are LED, utilizing the most up to date and efficient technology on the market. These new lights are using a fifth of the energy the previous lights used. Irwin Automotive sees the importance in protecting the environment and therefore sells very fuel efficient, ecological vehicles that are conducive to the needs of the environment.

Intrepid traveler and author to relate her adventures at Wolfeboro library WOLFEBORO — Meg Peterson will present the program Traveling Through Life Off the Beaten Track at the Wolfeboro Public Library on Thursday, Aug. 22 at 7 p.m. Peterson has loved travel since her first overseas adventure in college in 1949 as a member of the Quaker International Voluntary Service team sent to Denmark, France and Germany to help rebuild bombed-out hospitals and schools after World War II. A year later, she and her husband returned to Europe on an extended hitching honeymoon and lived in Germany until shortly before the birth of their first child. Seven years later, after moving five times and bearing five children, she settled in New Jersey. In 1961, Meg and her husband bought Oscar Schmidt International, the maker of Autoharps, a relatively unknown instrument used primarily in schools. Together, they redesigned and upgraded the instrument and turned the Autoharp into a popular solo instrument. Life has always been an adven-

She traveled behind the Iron Curtain in the 1980s and, since her divorce after thirty-three years of marriage, has made two around the world solo backpacking trips. Peterson co-wrote a play, “Thank You Dear,” produced in Deerfield, Mass., and has had her essays published in the New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, and New York Newsday. Her book “Madam, Have you Ever Really Been Happy? An Intimate Journey through Africa and Asia” was published in June 2005.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, August 14, 2013— Page 19

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Wednesday, Aug. 14, the 226th day of 2013. There are 139 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 14, 1945, President Harry S. Truman announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally, ending World War II. On this date: In 1848, the Oregon Territory was created. In 1908, a race riot erupted in Springfield, Ill., as a white mob began setting blackowned homes and businesses on fire; at least two blacks and five whites were killed in the violence. In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act into law. In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill issued the Atlantic Charter, a statement of principles that renounced aggression. In 1947, Pakistan became independent of British rule. In 1951, newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst, 88, died in Beverly Hills, Calif. In 1962, robbers held up a U.S. mail truck in Plymouth, Mass., making off with more than $1.5 million; the loot was never recovered. In 1963, playwright Clifford Odets, 57, died in Los Angeles. In 1969, British troops went to Northern Ireland to intervene in sectarian violence between Protestants and Roman Catholics. In 1973, U.S. bombing of Cambodia came to a halt. In 1993, Pope John Paul II denounced abortion and euthanasia as well as sexual abuse by American priests in a speech at McNichols Sports Arena in Denver. In 1997, an unrepentant Timothy McVeigh was formally sentenced to death for the Oklahoma City bombing. Ten years ago: A huge blackout hit the northeastern United States and part of Canada; 50 million people lost power. The chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, Roy Moore, said he would not remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building, defying a federal court order to remove the granite monument. Rebels lifted their siege of Liberia’s capital. Five years ago: President George W. Bush signed consumer-safety legislation that banned lead from children’s toys, imposing the toughest standard in the world. One year ago: Vice President Joe Biden sparked a campaign commotion, telling an audience in southern Virginia that included hundreds of black voters that Republican Mitt Romney wanted to put them “back in chains” by deregulating Wall Street. (Biden later mocked Republican criticism over the remark while conceding he’d meant to use different words.) Ron Palillo, the actor best known as the nerdy high school student Arnold Horshack on the 1970s sitcom “Welcome Back, Kotter,” died in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., at age 63.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

phrase that might save you is: “Well, this is one we’re not going to solve today.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Sitting with familiar bickering people who clearly are not getting along lately can be more cringe inducing and uncomfortable than holding your feet to a fire. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are some people you can’t relate to no matter how many people, places and things you might have in common. Don’t try. Move on to the next, the next, the next. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Promote yourself. Whether you do it directly or find a more creative approach doesn’t matter now. Just put yourself out there. You’re so lucky today that even a failed effort is likely to result in a better prospect. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 14). Your confidence soars and takes your social status right along with it. In September, you’ll reevaluate life: clarifying the past and unlocking the future. October begins a serious study that will go on for years. November brings gains of personal property. Casual relationships get serious. Legal arrangements will be made. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 25, 7, 48 and 19.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stack the odds in your favor. Instead of relying on one vehicle for getting what you want, go for it in multiple ways. It won’t be the aggressive methods that work; it will be the creative ones. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Persistence will pay, especially if what you are persistent about will benefit others. When it comes to communicating your intentions, three, four or even five calls are not too many. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One with a strong and perhaps even intimidating presence will figure into today’s business. Don’t lower your profile or back down in any way. Free the full force of your personality. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may find that people don’t work hard enough for your attention or that they take you for granted because you make your offerings too accessible. Is there a way to make your gifts seem rare and hard to get acquire? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It may be flattering to you when others imitate you, but because you never know how others are going to react to imitation, the best way will be to flatter others with sincere words. Keep looking for your very own muse. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are the person people talk to when they want to get the word out today -- no pressure. They see you as connected and maybe more connected than you actually are, but a few phone calls will change all of that. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It is dangerous to seek ego gratification from the final result of your efforts. For better or worse, you can’t control the response of the world. Let your whole body of work count in your own mind, and that will be enough. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Children are not the only ones who get cranky when they are hungry or tired. Keep this in mind when people around you are less than congenial. Snacks on hand and a bit of peace could turn everything around. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Steer clear of the controversy if at all possible. If your position makes this impossible, the

Dear Annie: I’ve found a new way to get free food: dumpster diving. Several times a week, a group of us go through the supermarket dumpster at night to see what they’ve thrown away. Sometimes there’s nothing, but other times, there’s great stuff. One night, I found nine ears of corn. Another time, it was 23 packs of chicken. I’ve found honeydew melons, cherries, grapes, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes and all sorts of other goodies. I thoroughly boil the meat and poultry before eating it, and I wash the fruit and pour boiling water over it. It loses some color, but still tastes sweet. I cook all vegetables. The problem is, there’s a stigma to this. People give us dirty looks. We’re very careful not to make a mess. We leave everything spotless. But the store manager hates us. And if my mother knew about this, she’d throw a fit. I can’t figure out why this is so despised. Why should I have to pay all that money for food when I can get it for nothing? -- New York Dear New York: Most people aren’t willing to go through someone else’s garbage in order to find edible food that isn’t contaminated, rotten, partially eaten or long past the expiration date. And while we know some folks do this for economic reasons or as a protest against the “system,” most people find it distasteful and demeaning. We think the owners of groceries and restaurants are entitled to earn a living, too, and we would hope that still-edible food is donated to food pantries whenever possible. Dear Annie: I don’t know how to get rid of my pest of a neighbor. I moved to this community three years ago, after my divorce. I befriended “Joyce,” a woman in her 70s who lives two doors down. Joyce won’t leave me alone. When I entertain my fiance or friends, she is sure to walk over uninvited and interrupt

us. On several occasions, I’ve given her my business card and asked her to call first to make sure I’m not busy. It hasn’t worked. She also drinks my wine, and even though she has an extensive wine collection, she never offers to replace the bottle she consumed at my place. At times, I’ve had to shut my curtains and hide in my bedroom until she is gone. Help. -- Prisoner in My Own Home in Southern California Dear Prisoner: Joyce is lonely and either clueless or deliberately obtuse. It is a kindness to include her when you can, but you also are entitled to entertain without her. So you will need to be a bit more assertive and willing to upset her. The next time Joyce comes over unannounced and unwanted, stop her at the door and say, “Joyce, I have company. You will have to come back another time.” If she gets teary, outraged, pushy or anything else, simply repeat that she will have to come back another time. Don’t let her walk beyond the threshold. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Need To Know in Saskatoon,” the woman who disliked her dentist referring to her as “dear.” I am a busy ob-gyn. I often call my patients by some such all-purpose term of endearment when I blank out and cannot remember their given name. It only means that I am busy and forgetful and have a lot on my mind. But at the same time, I want the patient to feel closer to me than she would if I did not address her at all. Your dentist only wants you to feel relaxed and comfortable. -- Little Doctor Dear Doctor: That won’t work if the patient finds it offensive and condescending. Some people don’t mind the endearment. Those who do need to inform the doctor, and the doctor needs to take the objection seriously.
