CIA admits existence of Area 51

LAS VEGAS (AP) — UFO buffs and believers in alien encounters are celebrating the CIA’s clearest acknowledgement yet of the existence of Area 51, the top-secret Cold War test site that has been the subject of elaborate conspiracy theories for decades. The recently declassified documents have set the tinfoil-hat crowd abuzz, though there’s no mention in the papers of UFO crashes, blackeyed extraterrestrials or staged moon landings. Audrey Hewins, an Oxford, Maine, woman who runs a support group for people like her who believe they have been contacted by extraterrestrials, said she suspects the CIA is moving closer to disclosing there are space aliens on Earth. “I’m thinking that they’re probably testing the waters now to see how mad people get about the big lie and cover-up,” she said. For a long time, U.S. government officials hesitated to acknowledge even the existence of Area 51. The CIA history released Thursday not see 51 page 23

Egypt protests devolve into street battles CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s capital descended into chaos Friday as vigilantes at neighborhood checkpoints battled Muslim Brotherhood-led protesters denouncing the ouster of President Mohammed Morsi and a deadly crackdown. The fiercest street clashes the city has seen in more than two years of turmoil left more than 60 people dead, including several policemen. The sight of residents firing at one another marked a dark turn in the conflict, as civilians armed with pistols and assault rifle clashed with protesters taking part in what the Muslim Brotherhood called a “Day of Rage,” ignited by anger at security forces for clearing two sit-in demonstra-

tions Wednesday in clashes that killed more than 600 people. Military helicopters circled overhead as residents furious with the Brotherhood protests pelted them with rocks and glass bottles. The two sides also fired on one another, sparking running street battles throughout the capital’s residential neighborhoods. There was little hope that an evening curfew would curb the violence as the Muslim Brotherhood called on supporters of the country’s ousted Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi, to stage daily protests. Unlike in past clashes between protesters and police, residents and possibly

police in civilian clothing battled those participating in the Brotherhood-led marches. There were few police in uniform to be seen as neighborhood watchdogs and pro-Morsi protesters fired at one another for hours on a bridge that crosses over Cairo’s Zamalek district, an upscale island neighborhood where many foreigners and ambassadors reside. Across the country, at least 56 civilians were killed, along with eight police officers, security officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations. The violence erupted shortly after midday weekly prayers when tens of thousands of see EGYPT page 9

WASHINGTON (AP) — New revelations from leaker Edward Snowden that the National Security Agency has overstepped its authority thousands of times since 2008 are stirring renewed calls on Capitol Hill for serious changes to NSA spy programs, undermining White House hopes that President Barack Obama had quieted the controversy with his assurances of oversight. An internal audit provided by Snowden to The Washington Post shows the agency has repeatedly broken privacy rules or exceeded its legal authority every year since Congress granted it broad new powers in 2008.

In one of the documents, agency personnel are instructed to remove details and substitute more generic language in reports to the Justice Department and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence — reports used as the basis for informing Congress. Obama has repeatedly said that Congress was thoroughly briefed on the programs revealed by Snowden in June, but some senior lawmakers said they had been unaware of the NSA audit until they read the news on Friday. The programs described earlier vacuum up vast amounts of metadata — such as telephone numbers called and called from, the time and

duration of calls — from most Americans’ phone records, and scoop up global Internet usage data. White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said Friday that the NSA documents showed that NSA’s Compliance Office established in 2009 “is monitoring, detecting, addressing and reporting compliance incidents,” and that “the majority of the compliance incidents are unintentional.” In a statement from the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard, where the president is vacationing, he added that the administration is “keeping the Congress appropriately informed of complisee NSA page 23

Iraq seeks help from US Bragdon to step down as NH Senate president CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Three days after palities participate. amid growing violence announcing his new position as executive director of Bragdon originally said he would abstain from WASHINGTON (AP) — A resurgence of violence and a renewed threat from al-Qaida have recently revived flagging U.S. interest in Iraq, officials said Friday as Baghdad asked for new help to fight extremists less than two years after it forced American troops to withdraw. Faced with security crises across the Mideast, North Africa and Asia, the White House largely has turned its attention away from Iraq since U.S. forces left in 2011. But the country has been hit with deadly bombings at a rate reminiscent of Iraq’s darkest days, stoking new fears of a civil war. More than 1,000 Iraqis were killed in terror-related attacks in July, the deadliest month since 2008. The violence has spurred Baghdad to seek new U.S. aid to curb the threat, said Iraqi Foreign Minister Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari. He said a U.S. assistance package could include a limited number of advisers, intelligence analysis and surveillance assets — including lethal drones. “There is greater realization in the Iraq government that we should not shy away from coming and asking for some help and assistance,” Zebari told reporters Friday in Washington. He described U.S. interest in Iraq after the 2011 troop withdrawal as “indifferent, completely” but said that seemed to shift as the White House realized al-Qaida’s resurrection there. “Recently I noticed, and during this visit specifically, there is a renewed interest because of the seriousness of the situation and the challenges,” Zebari said. “I think that is because of the threat of terrorism, the threat of the renewal of al-Qaida and its affiliates has become a serious, serious concern to the U.S.”

Judge calls Manning’s actions ‘heedless’

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — The enormous leak of classified information engineered by Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was “heedless” and “imminently dangerous to others,” a military judge said Friday in a document explaining why she found him guilty of 20 counts, including six violations of the federal Espionage Act. Army Col. Denise Lind released her legal rationale, or “special findings,” as the sentencing phase of Manning’s court-martial neared its end. Lawyers will make closing arguments Monday, and Lind said she would announce the sentence as soon as Tuesday. Manning faces up to 90 years in prison for sending more than 700,000 military and diplomatic documents, plus some battlefield video, to the antisecrecy group WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq in 2010. WikiLeaks published most of the material on its website. Lind wrote in the 10-page document that Manning’s actions were wanton and reckless. “Pfc. Manning’s conduct was of a heedless nature that made it actually and imminently dangerous to others,” she wrote. The rules for special findings require a written rationale only for guilty verdicts. Therefore, Lind provided no explanation for her decision to acquit Manning of the most serious charge, aiding the enemy. To have won a conviction on that charge, prosecutors would have had to prove that Manning knew the information he leaked would be seen by al-Qaida members. On the espionage convictions, for transmitting defense information, Lind found that the leaked material was both potentially damaging to the see MANNING page 11

New Hampshire’s Local Government Center, Peter Bragdon says he will step down as Senate president to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest. The Milford Republican said Friday he realizes his new position might cause some people to question the openness and integrity of the Senate, which he said he has “worked hard to nurture.” The LGC is an umbrella organization overseeing a health care trust, a workers’ compensation trust and a liability and property trust in which many munici-

Corporate greed making us sick The failure of our corporate and political leaders to make sure every worker gets good health care is causing some unpleasant consequences — like widespread stomach flu. Ill workers often spread illness, because millions of employees who deal directly with the public are not covered by paid sick leave policies. So, when they come down with something like the stomach flu, they tend to drag themselves to work, rather than going to bed until they recover, since staying home means a loss of pay — or even the loss of their jobs. Low-wage workers in the restaurant industry are particularly vulnerable and, since they handle food, particularly threatening. Nearly 80 percent of America’s food service workers receive no paid sick leave, and researchers have found that about half of them go to work ill because they fear losing their jobs if they don’t. As a result, a study by the Centers for Disease Control finds that ill workers are causing up to 80 percent of America’s stomach flu outbreaks, which is one reason CDC has declared our country’s lack of paid sick leave to be a major public health threat. You’d think the industry itself would be horrified enough by this endangerment of its customers that it would take the obvious curative step of providing the leave. But au contraire, amigos, such huge and hugely profitable chains as McDonald’s, Red Lobster and Taco Bell not only fail to provide such commonsense care for their employees, but also have lobbied furiously against city and state efforts to require paid sick days. Ironically, the top corporate executives of these chains (who are not involved in preparing or serving food to the public) are protected with full sick leave policies. For them to deny it to workers is idiotic, dangerously shortsighted — and even more sickening than stomach flu. But what about our lawmakers? Where’s the leadership we need on this basic issue of fairness and public health? To paraphrase an old bumper sticker: “When the people lead, leaders will follow. Or not.” Not when the “leaders” are in the pocket of corporate interests that don’t like where the people are leading. Take Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who never met a corporate pocket too grungy to climb into. This story starts in 2008, when the people of Milwaukee took the lead on the obvious need for a program allowing employees to

earn a few days of paid sick leave each year, to be used if they fall ill or must care for a sick family member. Seven out of 10 Milwaukee voters approved that measure in a citywide referendum. Corporate interests, however, sued to stall the people’s will, tying the sick leave provision up in court until 2011. By then, the corporations had put up big bucks to put Walker into the governorship — and right into their pocket. Sure enough, he dutifully nullified the Milwaukee vote by passing a “state pre-emption” law, autocratically banning local governments from requiring sick leave benefits for employees. Just three months later, Walker’s pre-emption ploy was the star at a meeting of ALEC, the corporate front group that brings state legislators into secret sessions with CEOs and lobbyists. There, legislators are handed model laws to benefit corporations — then sent home to pass them. At a session overseen by Taco Bell, attendees got copies of Walker’s no-paid-sick-leave edict, along with a how-to-pass-it lecture by the National Restaurant Association. “Go forth, and pre-empt local democracy!” was the message. And, lo, they did. Bills summarily prohibiting local governments from passing paid-sick-leave ordinances are being considered in at least 12 states this year, and Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Kansas, Mississippi and Tennessee have already passed theirs. Florida’s process was especially ugly. Organize now, a coalition of voters in Orlando, had obtained 50,000 signatures to put a sick leave referendum on last November’s ballot. But, pressured by the hugely profitable Disney World empire, county commissioners arbitrarily removed it from the ballot. The scrappy coalition, however, took ‘em to court — and won, getting the referendum rescheduled for a 2014 vote. Disney & Gang scuttled off to Tallahassee this year to conspire with Gov. Rick Snyder and GOP legislative leaders. Quicker than a bullet leaves a gun, those corporate-hugging politicos obligingly delivered a “kill shot” to Orlando voters by enacting a Walkeresque state usurpation of local authority. By spreading Walker’s autocratic nastiness from state to state, money-grubbing low-wage profiteers are literally spreading illness all across our land. (Forner Texas Agriculture Commissioner Jim Hightower has been called America’s most popular populist.)

LETTERS Seen any bears around? You likely won’t after September 1 To the Daily Sun, It’s getting to be that time of year again, what the department of F&G calls hunting season. It will not be long before thousands of bait sites for bear and deer around the state are gearing up, if not already. Bait season for bear starts September 1 and runs through September 28. Bait season for deer starts September 1 and runs to the last day of the season, December 15. The pre-baiting I’m sure is already at full throttle. If you have been seeing any bear this year, rest assured your probability of seeing them after September 1 will be nil. As a recap of the 2012 season 909 bears were killed, 432 were over bait. In addition to the 6 cubs killed over bait, 54 cubs were killed by other methods along with 34 lactating females. Oh yeah, one of these bear cubs was just 18lbs. In 2012 Ben Kilham our bear reha-

bilitator from Lyme, N.H., had 29 cubs dumped in his lap to raise up to be reintroduced back into the wild. So what happened to the 29 cubs? Five went back to Vermont where their is no baiting. The rest were dumped by the F&G at bait sites around the states. With thousands of bait sites for bear and deer in NH it would be impossible not to. This is a slap in their face. I’ll finish up with this. Out of the 423 bears killed over bait in 2012, 309 were three and a half years old or younger. The life expectancy for bears in N.H. is 3.5 years for males and 4.5 for females. What do you get for killing a baby bear? A big pat on the back with a “congratulation shooter”. Maybe next year you can get to kill something bigger. Eric Rottenecker Bristol

Here’s some other things Shaheen & Shea-Porter have done for us To The Daily Sun, Senator Shaheen and Rep. SheaPorter love to tell us everything they are doing for us. Here is a list of tax hikes that they did not tell us about. Both of them voted for all of these taxes: — Surtax (3.8 percent) on investment income — Hike in Medicare Payroll Tax — Individual Mandate Excise Tax — Tax on health insurers — Excise tax on comprehensive health insurance plans — “Black liquor” tax hike (bio-fuel) — Tax on drug companies — Tax on medical device manufacturers — High medical bills tax deduction — Flexible spending account cap aka “Special Needs Kids Tax” — Medicine cabinet tax — Elimination of tax deduction for employer-provided retirement Rx drug coverage (Medicare Part D)

— Change the ‘economic substance doctrine’ (allows IRS to disallow legal tax deductions) — Tax on indoor tanning services — Health Savings Account (HAS) withdrawal tax hike — Blue Cross/Blue Shield tax hike — Excise tax on charitable hospitals — Employer reporting of insurance on W-2 – allows IRS to tax you if you do not have insurance Call Rep.Shea-Porter or Senator Shaheen and ask them if I am wrong. Ask them to explain why they voted for all these taxes? Ask them if Obamacare applies to Congress or their congressional staff? The answer is no. Obamacare is the solution to the health care crisis but not for Congress. In 2014, we need to vote out Senator Shaheen, Reps Shea-Porter and Kuster. Jim Mayotte Sanbornton

LETTERS I’m disgusted, furious and outraged over coverage of rape case To The Daily Sun, I am writing in reference to an article printed on August 15 about a recent sexual assault arrest out of Laconia, written by Gail Ober. The suspect was Michael Sulloway of Laconia. I will not re-mention the victims initials as your reporter did. I am a citizen of Laconia and am disgusted, furious and outraged that a reporter in our community would print a story such as this. Victims initials were used and explicit details about abuse that they endured were published. Can you please inform why as a community we have the right to know who these victims are? I can appreciate that media in our day in age are always looking for the “big,” story and at times compromise basic human compassion and understanding, but

as a human-being to print what Gail Ober and ultimately The Daily Sun did is disgusting. These are not only victims, but CHILD victims. Anyone in the community who knows the suspect as well as the victims, can piece together who these young ladies are. Gail, you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself-there are no excuses for what you did! These young ladies deserve a public apology as well as the community at large. Thank you for your time and I hope you take the time to publish this letter. The Laconia Daily Sun does many wonderful things for the community and I hope will continue to do so, in light of this article that was printed. Liz Haynes Laconia

Citizens must have confidence that our elections are fair To The Daily Sun, Listening and reading the news the past couple of weeks it seems the Democrats are having quite a problem with North Carolina passing a voter ID law. Now if I believed their position that such a law is designed to prevent or reduce the minority vote, I too would be against; I just don’t. The left’s mantra that every vote should be counted is a sound position but so is the position of the rights that every vote must be a legal vote. I can see nothing wrong with either position but when, in the last election, some districts reported 115% of the votes for one candidate, something is wrong. It has long been taken as a given that

in some strongly Democratic areas, the voter lists are less then current and contain the names of dead or former residents who are no longer in the districts. Often research after an election will show that many of these folks voted. Citizens must have the confidence that our elections are fair and above board and given the strong indications that things are not as they should be I feel that voter ID laws are a good thing, just as I feel every legitimate vote should be counted. I have not heard one reasonable argument so far against these laws. Steve Earle Hill

BRAGDON from page 3 votes and impartially leading up to his selection for the $180,000-a-year job. Gov. Maggie Hassan called Bragdon’s decision to give up his leadership position “appropriate.” She said she looks forward to working with his successor. Bragdon said he will call the Senate back into session to allow him to step down from his position as president and to choose a new president. He said he expects that to happen as soon after Labor Day as all 24 senators can attend. “It has been an unbelievable honor and pleasure to serve as president of the state Senate for the past three years,” Bragdon said, “but I realize my new position as executive director of the Local Government Center may

cause some people to question the openness and integrity of the Senate, attributes that I have worked hard to nurture as president.” He said he recognized “the perception of impropriety could still exist” were he to remain Senate president. Bragdon is serving his fifth term in the Senate, and he will continue to serve as a legislator. He has been its president since December 2010. He has taught high school math and is the former president of ACHIEVE! Technology — an Amherst software company. He also owned the Milford Observer, a bi-weekly newspaper. After Sept. 1, the New Hampshire Municipal Association — the lobbying and public information arm for cities and towns — will become separate from the LGC and hire its own executive director.

Digital or dark for Weirs Drive-In LACONIA — With digital projection fast replacing conventional film, the Weirs Drive-In Theater, one of four of its kind remaining in New Hampshire, may soon face the choice of going digital or going dark. “Without digital we would have to close,” said Pat Baldi, owner of the venerable venue, “but it’s a big expense.” With digital projectors costing approximately $75,000 apiece, Baldi estimates an investment of $300,000 will be required to light the four screens at The Weirs. “That is a lot of money when we have have just a ten-week season,” she said. To defray a share of the cost, Baldi has enrolled in “Project Drive-In,” a competition sponsored by American Honda Motor Company. Honda has invited people to visit the website, where they can vote for their favorite drive-in theater as well as pledge to contribute to the national “Save the Drive-in Fund” at the Weirs Drive-In Theater. Each of the five most popular drive-in the-

aters will receive a digital projector from Honda. “Any help we can get will make this more affordable,” Baldi said. She said that her grandson has mounted a campaign on the theater’s Facebook page, reminding everyone they can vote on-line — vote_41 — or by text — VOTE41 to 444999 — every day until the polls close on September 9. Built in 1949, the Weirs Drive-In Theater is one of only 368 remaining of some 4,000 that operated in 1950s according to the United Drive-In Theater Owners Association. Of those that remain, about 140 have converted to digital projection. More than 90-percent of cinemas have made the change. The three other drive-in theaters in New Hampshire are the Milford Drive-In in Milford, Northfield DriveIn in Hinsdale and Northern Nights Drive-In in Lancaster. “We are the biggest drive-in in the state,” said Baldi. “We don’t want to close and we’re looking at all our options.”

STALKER from page one “We continued to chat about a business opportunity for a week or two but the conversation turned flirtatious and then spiraled out of control quickly,” the plaintiff wrote. The Daily Sun checked the Website and it appears to be one that sells self-created artwork that tailors to families. The Website is registered in Australia according to GoDaddy, an online Website registration company. His filing said that for the past six or seven months he has been begging her to stop contacting him but she has done everything she can to stay in touch, including calling him from 75 to 100 different phone numbers between 750 and 1,250 times. The victim said she has also sent him text messages and contacted a number of his friends and family by alleged hacking into his phone and stealing his electronic contacts. He said she even contacted him by cell phone while he was in the Belknap County Court House waiting to appear in court. He said the woman has made several attempts to use Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Amazon and other social media Websites to reach him and has set up duplicate Facebook accounts under the names of his friends and family to lure him in. “When I block one, she just creates another,” he wrote. “She’s crazy,” he said. He said she hired someone to take a picture of his father’s gravestone and sent it to him. He said she has also fabricated airline tickets that showed she would be flying into to Boston “just to scare him and his family.” He said the woman has somehow

been able to call him from numbers that show up on his caller ID as the Belknap County Sheriff’s Office or some of his family members. The Sheriff’s Department confirmed last week they are investigating the stalking as a possible criminal act. The victim said federal authorities have also been contacted. In her response, the defendant said she met the alleged victim in midDecember of 2012 through her job on a Internet site and that he will occasionally tell her he cannot continue to have contact with (her), but re-engages her within a short period of time. She denies stalking him and has accused him of abusing the court system. The alleged victim’s wife filed a separate restraining order saying the woman had contacted her as well on June 16 and had sent her a racy photograph that the couples small son had accidentally seen while playing a game on her cell phone. “(She) has told me several times that (she) sees herself as above the law and no matter what I do, nothing will ever stick or make her stop because she will always figure a way around it,” wrote the alleged victim’s wife. On August 13, Judge James O’Neill held a hearing and continued the restraining order. The defendant didn’t appear but filed a motion for a continuance, which was granted, and a motion to appear by telephone because she said she is pregnant and cannot fly, which was denied. A date for the final hearing for the restraining order is scheduled for September.

Catch basins proposed to solve water ponding at bottom of Cat Path in Gilford By Gail OBer

GILFORD — Engineers have recommended collecting water at the intersection of Cat Path and Henderson Road and directing it through a series of catch basins and a 15-foot pipe to an unnamed tributary of the Gunstock River. The plan, which will need to be approved by the N.H. Department of Environmental Services, will be reviewed by the Conservation Commission on Tuesday at 7 p.m. during its regular meeting. “We’re very concerned about the water build up and now we’re going to do something about it,” said Town Administrator Scott Dunn. If the proposal is approved by the state, Dunn said he expects the work to be done in 2014 and as part of the road maintenance budget line in the Department of Public Works. He estimates it will cost around $50,000. The proposal said the town was faced with three options for the area: do nothing, treat the additional collected storm water from Henderson Road and convey it through a closedpipe system to a 145-foot vegetated swale, or to construct the above catch basins and pipes. Unable to secure an easement from

the property owner of the proposed swale, the town chose the catch basins and a the 15-foot pipe with outflow to an unnamed Gunstock River tributary. The town expects it will have no effect on Gunstock River. The collected storm water will be treated runoff because it runs up-grade into heavily wooded area of the 13-acre watershed. It is not anticipated the runoff will increase the temperature of the river, it is not anticipated the runoff will flood the river, and it not expected to erode the discharge area because rip rap will be installed to reduce discharge flow. Once the Conservation Commission has reviewed the application, it will be forwarded to the DES for approval. In other Gunstock River news, commission member Everett McLaughlin said the State removed many of the trees that had fallen along the river in a nearby section of Intervale Road. The part of the Gunstock River that crosses Intervale Road has eroded and has seen excessive turbidity according to a Belknap County Conservation District study done released this spring. He said the state left the stumps and the Conservation District has applied for grants to help reduce the amount of silt that flows into Saunders Bay from that area of the Gunstock River.

M’BORO from page one Minkow to consider the information they had received. At the meeting the selectboard agreed to begin removal proceedings, but instructed Town Administrator Carter Terenzini and Minkow to offer the two members the opportunity to resign rather than undergo a public hearing. After both Bartlett and Ryerson refused to resign, the selectmen set a public hearing on September 9 to determine if there is cause to remove Bartlett and Ryerson from the Planning Board. The charges, which bore primarily on their conduct in approving construction of the observation tower, were set forth in letters to Bartlett and Ryerson, which were signed by the five selectmen. The identity of the complainant has not been disclosed and the form of the complaint remains in question. Aggrieved that his character has been impugned, Bartlett has repeatedly asked the selectmen to name the source of the complaint and they have steadfastly refused. On Wednesday, Selectmen Russell Wakefield, who represents the selectboard on the Planning Board, told the Planning that the selectmen received a “petition” from a person he declined to name. However, on Thursday, when Paul Punturieri, a member of the Planning Board, pressed the selectmen to disclose the source of the complaints, Joel Mudgett, the chairman of the board, replied “actually there were a number of people.” Likewise, Selectman John Tolman said that before the board met “the issue was already on my radar.” Mudgett went on to say that those who spoke to him did not want to be identified since they might appear before the Planning Board in

the future. When Wakefield asked if the selectboard could disclose the identity of “the person who initiated this with a petition, before any discussion was had by the board,” Mudgett said “we had some paperwork . . . but I never did see an actual petition.” Wakefield, who the night before insisted the petitioner, not the selectboard, initiated the proceedings — “we’re just a pass through body,” he said — remarked “I thought I did, but I could be wrong.” “I really am confused,” said Bartlett, who reminded Wakefield that earlier he had said there was a letter and had directed Terenzini to provide it to himself and Ryerson, “because now I am being told that there is no such letter and you cannot disclose who the author might be. “It’s frightening to me, and it should be frightening to everyone of you as elected officials,” Bartlett declared, “that one poison pen letter kept in secret and the author protected by some bond of secrecy can cause this much hassle. Is there a letter or not?” he asked. Wakefield replied that the letter sent to Bartlett and Ryerson, with the notice of the hearing and list of the charges, “is not verbatim but very close to the document we received on the afternoon of that non-meeting with town counsel. That’s what we received,” he repeated. “We understood what it said.” Selectman Chris Shipp reminded his colleagues that anyone bringing a grievance against a town employee must submit a signed written statement and said that the same courtesy should be extended to appointed and elected officials.

Son of Red Sox broadcaster charged with stabbing death of girlfriend WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) — The son of longtime Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy pleaded not guilty Friday to fatally stabbing his girlfriend a day after he was released from custody for allegedly assaulting her. Jared Remy, 34, was arraigned in Waltham District Court on charges of murder and domestic assault and battery in the Thursday night killing of Jennifer Martel, 27. Police officers responding to several 911 calls went to a Waltham apartment complex at about 10 p.m. Thursday and found Martel on an outside patio with multiple stab wounds, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan said. In court, prosecutors described a brutal and determined attack, saying Remy assaulted Martel in the kitchen, living room, on a stairway and then pinned her to the ground in the patio where he stabbed her several times. Neighbors who tried to help Martel were driven back when Remy slashed at them, Middlesex Assistant District Attorney Lisa McGovern told a judge. Remy was arrested at the scene, his clothes soaked in the victim’s blood. On Wednesday, Remy had been released on personal recognizance in an open assault and battery case in which Martel was the alleged victim, Ryan said. The there was no active restraining order against him, she said. Remy has a violent criminal history, including a total of 15 criminal charges since 1998, according to Waltham court records. He has been accused of assaulting five people —

including four women — and was involved in at least three restraining orders, including one in which he was the plaintiff. Remy was ordered held without bail. His attorney, Peter Bella, said he was trying to figure out what happened leading up to Martel’s stabbing, pointing out that his client had what could be described as defensive wounds. He called her death a tragedy. Martel’s 4-year-old child in the apartment was unhurt and is now in the custody of state child welfare officials. It was unclear if Remy was the father, Ryan said. Jerry Remy is a former Red Sox second baseman who has been a color analyst on team broadcasts on the New England Sports Network since 1988. He has struggled with health problems in recent years. Jared Remy is a former Red Sox security staffer who was fired by the team in 2008 during a steroid investigation. The Red Sox did not immediately return a call for comment, but NESN released a two-sentence statement lamenting the tragedy. “All of us at NESN and the Red Sox, along with Jerry Remy, are filled with grief for everyone involved, and we extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Jennifer Martel,” the statement read. NESN said later in a separate statement that Dennis Eckersley will fill in for Jerry Remy for games through next weekend. Network spokesman Gary Roy did not respond to calls and an email for clarification.

from preceding page that Bartlett and Ryerson should be entitled to face their accusers, explaining it that it was part of preparing their defense. He urged the board to address the issue of anonymity. Although earlier Wakefield, the only selectmen to insist that the board received a document, conceded he could not recall if it was signed, Mudgett implied that it could not be disclosed because “the paperwork we saw that night was between us and the town attorney.” “The accuser at this point is the Board of Selectmen,” Tolman said. “For right or wrong, we are the ones who signed this letter.” He said that the selectmen found that the information they received warranted a public hearing. Wakefield disagreed, repeating what he said the night before that the “petitioner,” not the selectmen, initiated the removal proceedings. “The Board of Selectmen are not the accuser,” he said. “That’s my belief.” Punturieri pointedly asked the selectmen if they had deliberated and voted during the non-meeting with town counsel on July 18. “Yes,” said Mudgett. According to the Memorandum of the New Hampshire Attor-

ney General on the application of the “Right-to-Know” law, “deliberation about the matter on which advice is sought may not occur during consultation with legal counsel.” Instead, any deliberation and votes must take place in public session. When Bartlett requested a record of the non-meeting under the Rightto-Know law, Terenzini told him that since no minutes are required of a non-meeting, none were taken and there were no other records of the proceedings. Meanwhile, Wakefield told the Planning Board that after consulting with town counsel the selectmen had no alternative other than to proceed with removal proceedings. Although Wakefield said earlier that the “petitioner” would present the case against Bartlett and Ryerson at the public hearing, Mudgett said that the role would “probably” fall to Terenzini. Terenzini said yesterday that town counsel would likely serve as legal advisor to the slectmen in the course of the hearing, but hastened to add that there was no formal process for conducting removal hearings in either statutes or rules. “We’re doing our best to craft a process that protects everyone’s rights,” he said.

Derry town administrator Report: A-Rod camp leaked docs implicating Braun charged with exposing himself to door-to-door DirecTV salesman

DERRY, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police say a town administrator has been charged with exposing himself to a salesman who paid a call to his home. WMUR-TV reports that Derry Town Administrator John Anderson was charged Friday with indecent exposure and lewdness, following a month-long investigation. Police say Anderson was home when a DirecTV salesman stopped by to make a sales pitch the evening of July 11. The salesman told police Anderson exposed himself and made a number of lewd comments to him. The salesman left and called his supervisor, who called police. The 50-year-old Anderson has been on paid administrative leave since last month. He has been town administrator for three years. Anderson did not immediately return a call to his home seeking comment.

NEW YORK (AP) — Members of Alex Rodriguez’s inner circle obtained and leaked documents that implicated Ryan Braun and other players in using performance-enhancing drugs, “60 Minutes” reported Friday. Citing unidentified sources, the CBS news show said the leak occurred in February, days after the Miami New Times published documents implicating the Yankees star in the Biogenesis investigation. In the Miami New Times documents, the names of Braun and one of Rodriguez’s teammates, catcher Francisco Cervelli, are redacted. “60 Minutes” reports that members of Rodriguez’s camp obtained unredacted versions and leaked them to Yahoo! Sports. Rodriguez’s lawyer, David Cornwell, denied the allegations to”60 Minutes.” “The allegations are untrue and are another attempt to harm Alex — this time by driving a

wedge between Alex and other players in the game,” he said in a statement to the show. “While Alex focuses on baseball and repeatedly states that he is going to respect the appeal process, the drumbeat of false allegations continues.” Speaking before Friday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox, Rodriguez claimed the story had been reported four months ago and was not a surprise. “I spoke to Cervelli this morning. He understands,” Rodriguez said in the visitor’s dugout at Fenway Park. “We had that conversation. He understands completely that it’s not true.” Rodriguez has been suspended for 211 games through the 2014 season. He is allowed to play until a decision is issued by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, which is not expected until at least November. “Let’s make one thing clear: the next seven weeks see next page lo w m o r tg ag e r at e s w h i l e t h e y l a s t

EGYPT from page 2 Brotherhood supporters answered the group’s call to protest across Egypt in defiance of a military-imposed state of emergency following the bloodshed earlier this week. Armed civilians manned impromptu checkpoints throughout the capital, banning Brotherhood marches from approaching and frisking anyone wanting to pass through. At one checkpoint, residents barred ambulances and cars carrying wounded from Cairo’s main battleground, Ramses Square, from reaching a hospital. The scenes highlighted how dangerous the divisions in Egypt have become. At least nine police stations were attacked Friday, officials said. Egypt’s police force was rocked by the country’s 2011 uprising that ousted longtime leader Hosni Mubarak from power and has not fully recovered since. On Thursday, the Interior Ministry said it had authorized the use of deadly force against anyone targeting police and state institutions. But the threat appeared not to intimidate protesters. The Brotherhood-led marches in Cairo headed toward Ramses Square, near the country’s main train station. The area is near Tahrir Square, where the army put up barbed wire and deployed 30 tanks outside the Cairo Museum overlooking the square as a buffer between the protesters and a small antiBrotherhood encampment in the square. Several of the protesters were seen writing their names and relatives’ phone numbers on one another’s chests and undershirts in case they were to die in Friday’s clashes. Tawfik Dessouki, a Brotherhood supporter, said he was ready to fight for “democracy” and against the military’s ouster of Morsi. “I am here for the blood of the people who died. We didn’t have a revolution to go back to a police and military state again and to be killed by the state,” he said during a march headed toward Ramses Square. At least 12 people were killed near the square after police fired on protesters. Some appeared to be trying to attack a nearby police station, security officials said. Inside Al-Fath mosque near Ramses Square, where the Brotherhood urged its Cairo supporters to converge, blood-soaked bodies with bullets to the head and chest lay next to one another. Associated Press photographers saw many of the dead inside the mosque-turned-morgue, which was also acting as a field hospital where the wounded were being wheeled in on wooden crates. One corpse had a name and phone number scribbled on the chest. The upper floors of a commercial building towering over Ramses Square caught fire later in the day, with flames engulfing it for hours. It was not immediately clear what caused the fire at the building housing the Arab Contractors’ construction company, but no injuries were reported.

from preceding page there’s going to be a very, very bumpy road every day and expect a story like this if not longer,” Rodriguez said. “We’re going to have to deal with it. When we have the right timing, and the time is appropriate, which is not now, I will tell my story.” Braun, the Milwaukee Brewers slugger, accepted a 65-game suspension last month. All-Stars Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera were banned 50 games apiece Aug. 5 when Major League Baseball disciplined 13 players, including Cervelli, for their relationship to Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. Rodriguez admitted four years ago that he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has repeatedly denied using them since. His penalty was more than double the previous high for a PED suspension.

A-Rod’s drug penalty was for “his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years,” MLB said. His punishment under the labor contract was for “attempting to cover up his violations of the program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commissioner’s investigation.” Commissioner Bud Selig said Thursday he thought the punishment was “eminently fair.” MLB’s investigation began last year after San Francisco outfielder and All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera tested positive for elevated testosterone, as did Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal. The inquiry escalated in January when the Miami New Times published documents obtained from former Biogenesis associate Porter Fisher that linked several players to the clinic.

Karner blue butterfly on the comeback in N.H. CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The Karner blue butterfly, once considered extinct in New Hampshire, has made a comeback. The state Fish and Game Department says the number of butterflies marked in the wild surpassed the previous high number observed in 2010, which was more than 2,600. This year’s final count is still being worked on. The department says good weather, coupled with help extending the butterfly’s unique habitat in Concord, have made a difference. A company called Praxair Surface Technology/TAFA created a 10-to15 acre habitat to attract the brilliant blue butterflies, planting over 600 blue lupine and nectar plants in a matter of hours, the insect’s main source of food. “The work that was completed by the staff of Praxair/TAFA would have taken a week or more for our limited staff to complete,” said John Kanter, coordinator of the Fish and Game Department’s Nongame and Endangered Wildlife Program. The butterfly has been on the federal Endangered Species list since 1992. That year it also was named

New Hampshire’s state butterfly, which has been working to restore their unique, savannah-like habitat, as legislators realized the numbers were dwindling. By 2000, biologists working to assess populations in the state found only one of the butterflies left in the wild. Fledgling efforts to monitor and preserve them led to a series of agreements among the state, city of Concord, and New Hampshire Army National Guard, which provided a building that served as a greenhouse to grow butterfly eggs and wild lupine. After a decade of carefully monitoring them and restoring their specialized habitat, even enlisting schoolchildren to help grow and plant lupines, the Karner’s population has rebounded. The summer’s count is expected to come the closest to reaching the federal recovery goal of 3,000 Karner blues in New Hampshire. The butterfly itself was discovered in the 1940s in Karner, N.Y., by Russian author and lepidopterist Vladimir Nabokov. It was once seen in 13 states, but that’s gone down to about half, due to a loss of habitat.

MANNING from page 3 United States and “closely held,” meaning it had been classified by the appropriate authorities and remained classified at the time it was leaked. The defense had argued that much of the information Manning leaked either contained no damaging information or was already publicly known. The lone computer fraud count on which Manning was convicted hinged on whether he knowingly exceeded his authorized access on a classified government network when he used his workplace computer to save the State Department cables to a CD so he could use his personal computer to transmit them to WikiLeaks. The defense had argued that Manning was authorized to view the cables as part of his job, and that there was no prohibition on downloading or saving them. Prosecutors had argued that Manning had no authority to access such a wide range of cables since his job was narrowly focused on the threat from Shia Muslims in Iraq. Lind drew a fine line in her legal reasoning. She said the phrase “exceeds authorized access” means Manning used the computer with authorization, and then used that access to obtain information he wasn’t entitled to obtain. The court-martial was in session for only about

30 minutes Friday. Prosecutors presented four bits of evidence retrieved from Manning’s personal computer, mostly communications with his friend, Danny Clark, a Cambridge, Mass., computer expert. The contents of those communications weren’t revealed in open court. A military psychiatrist who examined Manning after his arrest testified Wednesday that Clark was unavailable to Manning when Manning leaked the material under great psychological stress, largely due to his gender-identity uncertainty at a time when gay service members were prohibited from serving openly. Manning “felt in hindsight that if he’d been able to talk with Danny Clark, that might have prevented these acts because he felt like, ‘If Danny had told me not to do that, I definitely wouldn’t have done that,’” the psychiatrist, Navy Capt. David Moulton, testified. Clark did not respond Friday to telephone and email queries from The Associated Press. Manning apologized Wednesday for the harm he caused by leaking the information. He did not apologize, though, for exposing what he considered wrongdoing by the U.S. military and duplicitous diplomacy by the State Department.

BOSTON (AP) — Alfonso Soriano drove in four more runs and Andy Pettitte avoided his first-inning troubles to lead New York to a 10-3 victory over the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox on Friday night. The Yankees won for the fifth time in six games and sent the Red Sox to their third consecutive loss. With Tampa Bay’s victory over Toronto, Boston’s lead in the division was trimmed to one game. Soriano was 3 for 4 with a hit-bypitch and a three-run homer in the third that made it 6-0. He has 13 hits and 18 RBIs in his last four games. Alex Rodriguez had a pair of singles while getting booed loudly in his first appearance in Boston since he was suspended 211 games in baseball’s latest steroid scandal. Rodriguez, who is allowed to play pending his appeal, was also mocked by fans with chants of “You do steroids” and signs that said, “A-Roid” and “AFraud.” Pettitte (8-9) had allowed a run in the first inning in a franchise-record eight consecutive starts. But this time he retired the first eight Red Sox batters before Will Middlebrooks singled in the third. In all, Pettitte allowed three runs — none earned — on six hits and a walk, striking out five in 6 2-3 innings to win for the first time in six starts. Mark Reynolds, who was released by the Cleveland Indians last week, hit a two-run homer over the Green Monster in the second to give the Yankees a 3-0 lead. He is the 14th player in franchise history to homer in his first Yankees at-bat. Felix Doubront (8-6) allowed seven runs — six earned — on eight hits and two walks, striking out four in four innings. It was the first time in 17 starts that he allowed more than

three earned runs and just the second time all season. The Red Sox trailed 7-1 when they finally got to Pettitte in the seventh. Dustin Pedroia reached and went to second on an error, then scored when David Ortiz line a ball off the left field Wall. But Soriano threw Ortiz out trying to stretch it into a double. One out later, Stephen Drew doubled and Mike Napoli walked and Jarrod Saltalamacchia singled in a run to make it 7-3. Pinch-hitter Mike Carp tried to take first base, claiming he was hit in the foot by a pitch in the dirt, but was called back by home plate umpire Bill Welke. Carp was called out on strikes two pitches later and he slammed his helmet to the ground and was quickly ejected. Boston also threatened in the eighth, getting runners on first and second with one out. But Ortiz lined it to Rodriguez, who was shifted into the shortstop’s position, and he threw to second to double off Shane Victorino. Ichiro Suzuki had one hit, a runscoring Baltimore chop in the threerun ninth, giving him 3,995 combined in the major leagues and Japan. NOTES: Yankees SS Derek Jeter (strained right calf) shifted his rehab program to the Yankees’ minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., where he took 34 swings over five rounds of batting practice. He also fielded 43 grounders and made throws to first base. ... Robinson Cano singled in the fourth to extend his hitting streak to 11 games. ... The attendance of 38,143 was a season-high at Fenway Park. ... The Red Sox committed three errors — Pedroia, Drew and pitcher Rubby De la Rosa — and the Yankees had two, both by shortstop Eduardo Nunez.

Republican National Committee votes to block CNN, NBC from hosting debates BOSTON (AP) — The Republican National Committee, responding to plans by two television networks to air programs about Hillary Rodham Clinton, approved a resolution Friday to block CNN and NBC from hosting GOP presidential primary debates. The unanimous vote affirmed RNC Chairman Reince Priebus’s threat against the networks if they went ahead with programs about Clinton, a possible Democratic presidential contender. Priebus said CNN has “an obvious bias.” “That’s a network that won’t be hosting a single Republican primary debate,” Priebus declared, receiving a standing ovation from Republican activists from across the country gathered for the committee’s summer meeting in Boston. In a statement, CNN said a division of the company planned to air a documentary about Clinton in 2014. “The project is in the very early stages of development, months from completion,” the CNN statement read. “We encouraged all interested parties to wait until the program premieres before judgments are made about it. Unfortunately, the RNC was not will-

ing to do that.” Meanwhile, the Fox TV Studios has decided not to help produce NBC’s “Hillary” miniseries, said Leslie Oren, the company’s spokeswoman. Fox’s participation attracted attention because it is owned by News Corp. and is a sister company to the Fox News Channel, where the project has come under attack from commentators. The studio’s decision adds to the already considerable doubt within NBC that the miniseries will ever get made. The NBC entertainment division’s decision to go ahead with the project was made without consultation with NBC’s news division. Some NBC News people, including political director Chuck Todd and Washington reporter Andrea Mitchell, have attacked the idea as something that would make life difficult for the news division. Even before the Clinton dispute, Republican leaders favored plans to have fewer presidential debates with more friendly moderators. They believe their 2012 presidential candidates spent too much time beating up on each other in last year’s monthslong primary season, contribsee next page

Gilford-based team raises more than $10,000 for Norris Cotton Cancer Center

GILFORD — On Saturday July 13, the 15 members of Gilford-based Team A2Z participated in bicycling and walking events at The Prouty fund raising event in Hanover, and raised over $10,000 for the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Team A2Z was founded in 2012 by Jim Zimmermann of Gilford in honor of his wife, Anne Marie Zimmermann, who has been receiving treatment for ovarian cancer at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center for the last six years. When Anne Marie was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer at LRGH, the doctor immediately referred her to Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Since the original diagnosis, Anne Marie has undergone five major surgeries and dozens of chemo treatments at the center. She is still currently undergoing treatments at the Center. Team A2Z members include Gilford residents Jim Zimmermann, Tim Zimmermann, Douglas Doyle, Cynthia Palage, Katie McCutcheon, Diane Hanley, and Mike Dowe. Other team members came from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, and Pennsylvania and included Tom Zimmermann, Paul Zimmermann, Edie Wagner, Walter Zimmermann Jr., Lou Paolini, Nancy Paolini, Linda Zimmermann, and Robert Strong. Jim Zimmermann, the founder and captain of Team A2Z, had been doing the Prouty as an individual participant for four years before he started the team; “Each year I tried to raise a little more money for the center which has been providing such incredible care for my wife. Last year I realized the best way to increase the amount raised was to create a team and invite others who have been touched by cancer to participate. In the first year the team raised about $5,000, and this year we added new members and more than doubled the amount of money we raised. We hope to at least double the number of team members and the amount we raise for the 2014 event.” The Team received donations from well over 50

individuals, families and businesses, and donations came in from people that Jim works with all over the world, including one donation from New Zealand. Employees of Skillsoft (Jim Zimmermann’s employer) in Nashua, donated over $2,500 to the team and Skillsoft is providing a corporate match donation of nearly $2,000. Petersen, Mann & Associates Ameriprise Financial Advisors of Meredith and Lakes Region Dental Care of Gilford also made generous donations to support Team A2Z and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

Laconia Adult Education offering algebra course Bob Franz Master Technician

603-470-7575 380 Peaked Hill Rd. Bristol, NH 03222

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education is offering an Algebra II/Accuplacer/Assistments class beginning on Monday, August 26. The class will meet for (15) fifteen weeks from 6–9 p.m. This class is designed to help students improve their math skills and scores so that when they go on to postsecondary educational opportunities, they will be able to enroll in regular courses leading to their degree as opposed to having to spend time in remedial math classes. The Accuplacer that is given on a college level is a battery of computerized tests that determines a stu-

dents’ knowledge in math, reading and writing as they prepare to enroll in college level courses. The results of this assessment, in conjunction with the students’ academic background, goals and interests, are used by the college academic coordinators and counselors to place students into college level courses that meet their needs. The Accuplacer also helps colleges to determine the students’ strengths and weaknesses and to provide them with early academic help if necessary. For more information or to register for classes contact the Laconia Adult Education Office at 524-5712.

13th Annual Land & Lake Poker Run raised $60,000 for Easter Seals

LACONIA — Over 500 participants enjoyed the sunshine as they traveled on or around Lake Winnipesaukee at this year’s 13th Annual HK Powersports Land and Lake Poker Run at the Naswa Resort on July 20. Participants traveled by cars, motorcycles, boats, personal watercrafts, and trucks, and raised over $60,000 for Easter Seals programs and services to help people of all ages with disabilities and special needs, bringing the 13 year total to more than $750,000. Participants collected sealed playing cards from a variety of fun checkpoints with games and raffles on and around Lake Winnipesaukee before heading to the Naswa Resort to play their poker hand and enjoy the huge beach party loaded with a buffet by Sysco, a DJ, water games by Coors Light and Kids Only, and other family-fun activities throughout the day. “The atmosphere of the Poker Run this year was so exciting and fun,” said Christine Pederson, Easter Seals NH Director of Event and Corporate Relations. New this year to the event was the High Roller’s Club, sponsored by Irwin Marine, which raised the stakes for serious players. Sue Haydock (Manchester), was the land winner, and Steven Delucca (Windham), the lake winner, for the best poker hands. High Roller’s Club winner, Wayne Pinhu (Barrington), who won a $1,000 prize. Harley-Davidson of Manchester and Nashua sponsored the cash prizes for each winning hand. Grand prize raffle winners were: Brian Lacourse (Epsom) won the Seadoo Jet Ski donated by HK Powersports, Rene Normand (Nashua) won the BBQ set, Carol Labbe (Manchester) won the canoe, and Paul Rheault (Pelham) won the kayak. In additional to HK Powersports, sponsors of this event include The Naswa Resort, Mix 94.1 FM, Brady Sullivan Properties, SeaDoo, Lakes Region Casino, Metrocast, Irwin Marine, Bank of New Hampshire, Zero Waste & Recycling Services, Inc., SYSCO of Northern New England, Inc., Kids Only, Harley Davidson Motorcycles of Nashua and Manchester, Tanger Outlets of Tilton, Belknap Subaru, SouthEnd Media, Plastic Distributors and Fabricators, Inc., Stonyfield Yogurt, Baron’s Major Brands Appliances, Coors Light, Corona, Samuel Adams, The Citizen of Laconia, LTD Company, Pepsi, CVS, Patrick’s Pub and Eatery, Winnipesaukee Marine Construction, Weirs Beach Lobster Pound and Pederson Flooring & Refinishing.

We logged a very healthy 16 waterfront sales on Winnipesaukee in July with an average sticker of $812,125. That’s a big improvement over the four transactions last July, but the average sales price was well off the $1.153 million posted then. So far, through the end of July, there have been 61 waterfront sales on the big lake at an average price of $942,325. That’s down from the 66 sales for the same period last year at an average price of $936,634. So, even though we were off to a slow start, things are catching up. The least expensive Winni waterfront sale is typically an island property and so it is again with the sale of a 1970 vintage, four room, two bedroom, open concept cottage at 289 Cow Island in Tuftonboro. You won’t get lost in this 800 square foot panel but you could get mesmerized by the sweeping lake views through the two walls of glass of the main house and from the wrap-around deck. There is a waterside bunk house that sleeps six, a huge deck over the water, and a 30’ dock. The house sits on a .41 acre lot with 100’ of frontage. This property was originally offered at $349,000, was reduced to $250,000, and sold for $232,000 after 650 days on the market. It is assessed at $290,400 so someone finally saw the value there. The property representing our median price point sale is at 43 Brickyard Road in Alton. This 1940’s, two bedroom cottage may likely make way for a new home as shore land protection approvals and a new septic design are already in place for a new structure. The .53 acre level lot is in an area of very nice homes and has fantastic sunset views, a sugar sand beach, and 90 feet of frontage. This property was listed way, way back in July of 2009 at $995,000 and has been on the market on and off ever since. It was offered this year at $797,000 and sold for $755,000. The property was on the market for a total of 1,048 days. The current assessed value is $794,000. The highest sale on the big lake in July is the property at 5 Dock Road in Moultonborough. This 4,294 square foot, contemporary home was built in 1967 and features mostly one floor living with three bedrooms including the master “wing” on the main level and guest quarters upstairs. Walls of glass bring the views and light into this spacious home that features hardwood floors, a large stone fireplace, sun porch, a family room, and den.

The real draw here, however, is the 1.7 acre lot with 287 feet of westerly facing frontage. This home is very usable as is but will undoubtedly undergo some renovations to make it is as stunning as the views. This home was offered at $1.99 million and sold for $1.675 million after only 81 days on the market. It is assessed at $2,147,300. There were two sales on Winnisquam in July. A 1960’s vintage, three bedroom, one bath cottage in need of some major renovation work or replacement at 59 Stoneybrook Road in Meredith found a new buyer who likely saw the value in the secluded 2 acre lot with 112’ of frontage. This property is also situated next to 382 acres of State Forest that helps enhance its privacy. It was listed at $359,000 and was under contract for $322,000 after just after 20 days on the market. Over at 208 Eastman Shore Road a 2,500 square foot, 60’s vintage, remodeled contemporary cape with four beds and three full baths on a .82 acre lot with 160 feet of frontage also found a new owner. This meticulously maintained home features hardwood floors, master suite, natural woodwork, vaulted ceilings, fireplace, a walk out basement, and great westerly views. This home was listed at $749,900 and quickly went under agreement for $740,000. It is assessed at $690,900. There were three sales on Squam in July. The property at 518 High Haith Road in Moultonborough was the highest sale of the month on Squam. This 1975 vintage, five room, one bedroom, one bath home has 788 square feet of space and was originally built as a guest house for a neighboring property. It sits on a 1.23 acre lot providing nice privacy but just 35’ of frontage...but, ah yes, it is Squam frontage after all! It was listed at $999,000 in Oct 2012, brought back on the market this year at $799,000 and sold quickly for $625,000. It is assessed at $1.277 million...and yes, like I said, it is Squam after all...

Planning Commission receives EPA grant to clean up contaminated sites

LACONIA — The Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) was recently awarded $200,000 from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Brownfields Program to assist Lakes Region communities with assessments of vacant and underutilized sites that remain in that state due to concerns about environmental contamination from hazardous materials. According to Kimon Koulet, LRPC Executive Director, our goals for the funding include, “Creating and preserving Open Space, increasing economic opportunities in the Lakes Region, and reducing the threat to human health and the environment. Our previous Brownfields funding led to the clean-up of sites in Bristol, Franklin, and Tilton, as well as a special assessment for the Lakes Region Facility in Laconia. EPA has given this region another opportunity to work on more eligible properties, which we appreciate.” The new award will enable LRPC to hire a qualified environmental firm to conduct Phase 1 and Phase 2 studies of Brownfields in the Lakes Region. Phase 1 assessments examine cur-

rent and former uses of a property in order to determine the potential for environmental issues. Phase 2 studies involve collecting laboratory samples and data necessary to confirm or dismiss any environmental questions identified during Phase 1. These studies are important steps before cleanup and reuse can occur. Brownfields sites are defined under the Brownfields Revitalization Act of 2002 as “real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.” The LRPC plans to initiate the program this fall, and to conclude the program within the next three years. An association of 30 communities, the LRPC has active programs in land use and environmental planning, transportation, watershed protection, economic development, technical assistance, and information services. For additional information about the federal Brownfields program in New England, see http://www.epa. gov/region1/brownfields/index.html. For other questions, please contact the LRPC at 279-8171.

51 from page 2 only refers to Area 51 by name and describes some of the aviation activities that took place there, but locates the Air Force base on a map, along the dry Groom Lake bed. It also talks about some cool planes, though none of them are saucer-shaped. George Washington University’s National Security Archive used a public records request to obtain the CIA history of one of Area 51’s most secret Cold War projects, the U-2 spy plane program. National Security Archive senior fellow Jeffrey Richelson first reviewed the history in 2002, but all mentions of the country’s most mysterious military base had been redacted. So he requested the history again in 2005, hoping for more information. Sure enough, he received a version a few weeks ago with the mentions of Area 51 restored. The report is unlikely to stop the conspiracy theorists. The 407-page document still contains many redactions, and who’s to say those missing sections don’t involve little green men? It’s not the first time the government has acknowledged the existence of the super-secret, 8,000-square-mile installation. Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush referred to the “location near Groom Lake” in insisting on continued secrecy, and other government references date to the 1960s. But Richelson, as well as those who are convinced “the truth is out there,” are taking the document as a sign of loosening secrecy about the government’s activities in the Nevada desert. The site is known as Area 51 among UFO aficionados because that was the base’s designation on old Nevada test site maps. The CIA history reveals that officials renamed it “Paradise Ranch” to try to lure skilled workers, who can still be seen over Las Vegas flying to and from the site on unmarked planes.

Beginning with the U-2 in the 1950s, the base has been the testing ground for a host of top-secret aircraft, including the SR-71 Blackbird, F-117A stealth fighter and B-2 stealth bomber. Some believe the base’s Strangelovian hangars also contain alien vehicles, evidence from the “Roswell incident” — the alleged 1947 crash of a UFO in New Mexico — and extraterrestrial corpses. The CIA history mentions an “unexpected side effect” of the high-flying planes: “a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects.” The report notes that the U-2 and Oxcart planes, which flew higher than civilians believed possible, accounted for half of UFO sightings during the 1950s and ‘60s. A likely story, said Stanton Friedman, a self-described Ufologist from Canada. “The notion that the U-2 explains most sightings at that time is utter rot and baloney,” he said. “Can the U-2 sit still in the sky? Make right-angle turns in the middle of the sky? Take off from nothing? The U-2 can’t do any of those things.” Even for those who do not believe in UFOs, the mystery surrounding the site — situated about 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, across miles of desert speckled with Joshua trees and sagebrush — has been a boon. One Nevada bicycle event company produces an “X Rides” event that incorporates mountain biking near a certain heavily guarded patch of Nevada desert. Las Vegas’ minor league baseball team is called “the 51s.” Small-town restaurants along State Route 375, officially designated the Extraterrestrial Highway, sell souvenir T-shirts to tourists making their way to the boundary of Area 51, which consists of a no-trespassing sign, an armed guard on a hill and a surveillance camera.

NSA from page 2 ance issues as they arise.” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy announced he would hold hearings into the new disclosures. “I remain concerned that we are still not getting straightforward answers from the NSA,” the Vermont Democrat said in a statement. Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein said her committee had been notified of compliance problems — not by seeing the internal audit but through legally required reports to her committee. “In all such cases, the incidents have been addressed by ending or adapting the activity,” the California Democrat said in a statement.” She added, “The committee has never identified an instance in which the NSA has intentionally abused its authority to conduct surveillance for inappropriate purposes.” But she said that committee would be asking for additional reports in future, and members would start making routine trips to the NSA to oversee its activities. Her Republican House counterpart, Intelligence chairman Mike Rogers, said human error was inevitable and “there was no intentional and willful violation of the law.” But the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, called the new disclosures “incredibly trou-

bling.” He said he had instructed his staff “to thoroughly review and evaluate these allegations.” Another Democratic member of the Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Thompson of California, said: “Reports that the NSA repeatedly overstepped its legal boundaries, broke privacy regulations and attempted to shield required disclosure of violations are outrageous, inappropriate and must be addressed.” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, who generally supports the programs, said in a statement Friday that the new revelations “are extremely disturbing.” And two senators who have consistently raised red flags about possible privacy violations stemming from NSA programs indicated there is more to be revealed. “We believe Americans should know that this confirmation is just the tip of a larger iceberg,” said Democratic Sens. Mark Udall of Colorado and Ron Wyden of Oregon in a statement. Both declined to provide details, citing Senate rules about discussing classified information. Proposed legislation to dismantle the programs was narrowly defeated last month in the House. The July legislative effort brought together Libertarian-leaning conservatives and liberal Democrats who pressed for change against congressional leaders and lawmakers focused on security.

Get Fuzzy

By Holiday Mathis

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As the ancient wisdom suggests, usually the order is: pride, fall. When you notice the puffedup chest, boasting and posturing, whether you’re the perpetrator or the witness, you brace yourself for the inevitable. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Time will only be on your side after you’ve made a few agreements with it. Decide when your job is to be accomplished, and put it on your calendar. Deadlines will make you productive. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The stars seem like eternal fixtures in the sky, but even the eternal stars are in flux. Each one is born and will die. They expand, contract, change color, change brightness. They change, and so can you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 17). Practical plans and impractical dreams have an equal shot at being realized in September, so make bold moves. In October, let loved ones connect you with professional opportunity. Arts, hobbies and education benefit your love life in November. A blending of influences will change your domestic scene in May. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 24, 31, 9 and 3.

by Chad Carpenter

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some experts insist that one person cannot technically make another person happy, that each person is in charge of his or her own happiness. The events of your day will challenge this theory big-time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll ease up and encourage others not to pretend. You want to see the flaws today. The perfection of any situation will only nudge you toward the freedom of imperfection. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Problems will not go away just because someone utters a few words that cost nothing. And yet, it’s a start. It helps that you now know the other person’s intentions are to make things better. CANCER (June 22-July 22). How can you draw a conclusion from insufficient evidence? People do it every day. In this mysterious existence, very little is truly known, and that’s the fun of it. To a great degree, you are free to make up things. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll have no trouble capturing and holding people’s attention. If someone has to talk to the group, it should be you. You’ll communicate your vision clearly using your flair for vivid demonstration. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). New communication skills can always be picked up. Some of the ineffective habits you learned from well-intentioned people will be replaced with better ways of connecting with people in the weeks to come. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you fall into a set of bad thoughts, just try to remember that you don’t have to identify with everything that crosses your mind. Many thoughts don’t even originate in your own brain. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your internal set of rules will be different from those imposed by today’s games. Feeling satisfied and content is winning. This can happen with or without the trophy in your hand. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Deciding what went wrong and why isn’t an exercise in negativity. Rather, it’s a method of pinpointing possible corrective action so you can decide the best way to proceed.

THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, August 17, 2013— Page 25

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Saturday, Aug. 17, the 229th day of 2013. There are 136 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 17, 1943, the Allied conquest of Sicily during World War II was completed as U.S. and British forces entered Messina. On this date: In 1807, Robert Fulton’s North River Steamboat began heading up the Hudson River on its successful round trip between New York and Albany. In 1863, Federal batteries and ships began bombarding Fort Sumter in Charleston harbor during the Civil War, but the Confederates managed to hold on despite several days of pounding. In 1915, a mob in Cobb County, Ga., lynched Jewish businessman Leo Frank, whose death sentence for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan had been commuted to life imprisonment. (Frank, who’d maintained his innocence, was pardoned by the state of Georgia in 1986.) In 1942, during World War II, U.S. 8th Air Force bombers attacked German forces in Rouen, France. In 1962, East German border guards shot and killed 18-year-old Peter Fechter, attempting to cross the Berlin Wall into the western sector. In 1969, Hurricane Camille slammed into the Mississippi coast as a Category 5 storm that was blamed for 256 U.S. deaths, three in Cuba. In 1978, the first successful trans-Atlantic balloon flight ended as Maxie Anderson, Ben Abruzzo and Larry Newman landed their Double Eagle II outside Paris. In 1983, lyricist Ira Gershwin died in Beverly Hills, Calif., at age 86. In 1985, more than 1,400 meatpackers walked off the job at the Geo. A. Hormel and Co.’s main plant in Austin, Minn., in a bitter strike that lasted just over a year. In 1987, Rudolf Hess, the last member of Adolf Hitler’s inner circle, died at Spandau Prison at age 93, an apparent suicide. In 1998, President Clinton gave grand jury testimony via closed-circuit television from the White House concerning his relationship with Monica Lewinsky; he then delivered a TV address in which he denied previously committing perjury, admitted his relationship with Lewinsky was “wrong,” and criticized Kenneth Starr’s investigation. Ten years ago: Federal investigators joined industry teams in the search for clues into what triggered the country’s worst power blackout in the Midwest and Northeast as the Bush administration promised to get answers and address whatever problem was found. Five years ago: In tennis, Venus and Serena Williams defeated Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual of Spain in women’s doubles; Rafael Nadal defeated Fernando Gonzalez of Chile in the men’s singles; Elena Dementieva defeated fellow Russian Dinara Safina in the women’s singles. One year ago: In Moscow, a judge sentenced three punk rock-style activists, members of the band Pussy Riot, to two years in prison for hooliganism for briefly taking over a cathedral in a raucous prayer for deliverance from Russian President Vladimir Putin; the court decision drew protests around the world. (One of the three defendants was later released on probation.)

Page 26 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Saturday, August 17, 2013


Dear Annie: Last week, my stepfather called me to say that my 78-year-old mother came downstairs complaining that her “brain wasn’t working right” and that she was dizzy. She sat at the table for an hour before getting herself breakfast and doing the crossword puzzle. Then she asked him the same crossword question three times in three minutes. My husband said Mom may have had a stroke and that she should get to the emergency room. I suggested this to my stepfather, but he said he wasn’t going to do that on a Saturday. So I called Mom’s doctor, who said to bring her in to the hospital so they could see whether she’d had a stroke and, if so, monitor her blood pressure. I told my stepfather what the doctor said, and now he is angry with me, saying I overstepped my authority. He said it was not my place to call Mom’s doctor and get her the help she needs. Later, when I spoke to my mother, she was surprised by all this and agreed to see her doctor. Unfortunately, my stepfather did not accompany her, and she neglected to tell the doctor that she had been dizzy and forgetful. Mom has shown other signs of short-term memory loss, but never this bad before. They live about an hour away from us. How much should I help, and how much should I mind my own business? -- Worried About Mom Dear Worried: It is not uncommon for people to minimize the health problems of spouses. It is much easier for your stepfather to believe his wife will be just fine, although the fact that he called you with the original information indicates that he was worried. Instead of telling him what to do or doing it behind his back, include him in these decisions. Pay a visit to Mom, and sit down with both of them. Explain that Mom’s doctor is concerned that her dizziness and forgetfulness could be serious.

Ask if you could accompany Mom to the next doctor’s appointment. Ask how you can help make this easier for both of them. Let him know you are counting on him. Dear Annie: This is for “Amateur Author in El Paso,” who wants someone to read his manuscript and offer feedback, but his family is not interested. He should be grateful his relatives don’t want to read his writing. Unless they are professional book editors, their feedback may not be helpful. I have edited 38 national bestsellers since 1979. Here’s my advice: When you look for a writers group, make sure the members are knowledgeable and supportive. The facilitator should have credentials you can trust. (You do want a facilitator so everyone has a turn and no one’s ego goes out of control.) Find a professional editor to mentor you. Consult the Better Business Bureau, the Writers Digest Classified section, and the website that identifies “preditors and editors” ( Ask for references from recent clients. Hang in there. People don’t write because they want to. They write because they have to. -- Sarasota, Fla. Dear Sarasota: Thank you for your professional advice. Many readers wrote to tell “Amateur Author” not to ask friends or relatives for their opinions, because they are not qualified to offer useful assistance and their feedback could be counterproductive. Here’s one more: Dear Annie: From my experience and what I hear from other writers, the last place to go for feedback on your novel is your family -- and probably most of your friends. I recommend looking for a supportive writing group through your community’s recreation department, local newspapers, libraries, bookstores, senior centers and night schools. -- Getting Great Feedback in Santa Cruz
