Exhaust leak forces armored van to take a long break at McDonald’s

MEREDITH — A armored van bringing cash from the Mt. Washington Valley to Massachusetts unexpectedly spent several hours in the McDonald’s parking lot here on Tuesday evening. According to police, an apparent exhaust system leak into the cab resulted in one of the employees of Garda Security who was riding in the van becoming quite sick. The van was traveling through Meredith at the time and the driver pulled into the McDonald’s parking lot. The ill man was transported to the hospital for treatment but the van had to wait for a tow truck to make its way up from Massachusetts. Police stood guard over the van and its valuable cargo until the tow truck arrived.

Pleasant Street School principal heading back to M’borough By RogeR aMsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — Pleasant Street Elementary School Principal Kathleen D’Haene has resigned and will be returning to Moultonborough Central School, where Principal Dawn Alexander-Tapper recently resigned. D’Haene served as assistant principal at Moultonborough Central School before

coming to Laconia three years ago, when she replaced Charles Dodson. Laconia Assistant Superintendent of Schools Terry Fostern told the Laconia School Board last night that she has met with staff at Pleasant Street and that the administration is looking in-house to fill the position, if possible. She said the administration will start advertising for candidates next week.

‘’We’re looking at the leadership team and have had individual conversations with staff who may be interested in the opportunity,’’ Fostern told members of the board’s Budget and Personnel Committee when they met prior to last night’s School Board meeting. Board member Chris Guilmett expressed concern over the turnover at the principal see PRINCIPAL page 10

BOSTON (AP) — A former enforcer for James “Whitey” Bulger who admitted killing 20 people insisted Tuesday that he is not a hit man or a serial killer, but instead is a “nice guy” who was only trying to help his family and friends when he pumped bullets into victims while working with Bulger and his gang. John Martorano made the statements in his second day on the witness stand during an aggressive cross-examination by a lawyer for Bulger, who is charged in a racketeering indictment with participating in 19 killings in the 1970s and ‘80s as leader of the Winter Hill Gang. Bulger’s lawyer, Hank Brennan, went after Martorano, sarcastically asking him about an assertion that he did not consider himself a hit man. Brennan asked Martorano whether mass murderer or serial killer were more appropriate see BULGER page 12

NSA says plot against Wall Street foiled by surveillance WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. foiled a plot to bomb the New York Stock Exchange because of the sweeping surveillance programs at the heart of a debate over national security and personal privacy, officials said Tuesday at a rare open hearing on intelligence led by lawmakers sympathetic to the spying. The House Intelligence Committee hearing provided a venue for officials to defend the once-secret programs and did little

probing of claims that the collection of people’s phone records and Internet usage has disrupted dozens of terrorist plots. Few details were volunteered. Army Gen. Keith Alexander, director of the National Security Agency, said the two recently disclosed programs — one that gathers U.S. phone records and another that is designed to track the use of U.S.based Internet servers by foreigners with possible links to terrorism — are critical.

But details about them were not closely held within the secretive agency. Alexander said after the hearing that most of the documents accessed by Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former systems analyst on contract to the NSA, were on a web forum available to many NSA employees. Others were on a site that required a special credential to access. Alexander said investigators are studying how Snowden did that. see NSA page 6

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Taliban and the U.S. said Tuesday they will hold talks on finding a political solution to ending nearly 12 years of war in Afghanistan, as the international coalition formally handed over control of the country’s security to the Afghan army and police. The Taliban met a key U.S. demand by pledging not to use Afghanistan as a base to threaten other countries, although the Americans said they must also denounce

al-Qaida. But President Barack Obama cautioned that the process won’t be quick or easy. He described the opening of a Taliban political office in the Gulf nation of Qatar as an “important first step toward reconciliation” between the Islamic militants and the government of Afghanistan, and predicted there will be bumps along the way. Obama, who was attending the G-8 summit in Northern Ireland, praised

Afghan President Hamid Karzai for taking a courageous step by sending representatives to discuss peace with the Taliban. “It’s good news. We’re very pleased with what has taken place,” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in Washington. British Prime Minister David Cameron, whose country has the second-largest contingent of troops in Afghanistan after the U.S., called opening the office “the right thing to do.” see TALIBAN page 9

DETROIT (AP) — Chrysler abruptly agreed to recall 2.7 million older model Jeeps Tuesday, reversing a defiant stance and avoiding a possible public relations nightmare over fuel tanks that can rupture and cause fires in rear-end collisions. In deciding on the recall, Chrysler sidestepped a showdown with government

safety regulators that could have led to public hearings with witnesses providing details of deadly crashes involving the Jeeps. The dispute ultimately could have landed in court and hurt Chrysler’s image and its finances. The company said calls from customers concerned about the safety of their Jeeps

played a part in its going along with the government’s request. Earlier this month, the automaker publicly refused the government’s request to recall Jeep Grand Cherokees from model years 1993 through 2004 and Jeep Libertys from 2002 through 2007. see JEEP page 11

House & Senate negotiators compromise on medical marijuana bill CONCORD (AP) — House and Senate negotiators reached a deal on a medical marijuana bill Tuesday, positioning New Hampshire to join more than a dozen other states in legalizing the drug for seriously ill patients. Both chambers had previously passed the bill, but the Senate version eliminated a House-proposed option for patients to grow the drug at home as well as obtain it at a dispensary, and Gov. Maggie Hassan said she wouldn’t sign the bill if the home-grow provision remained. In a negotiation session Tuesday, House lawmakers agreed to drop that provision and go along with other Senate changes in exchange for specifying that the commission implementing the new system be appointed as soon as the bill is passed. Opponents of the home cultivation option were concerned about the state’s ability to regulate it. Supporters argued it was critical to ensure immediate access for terminally ill patients, given that it would take the state close to a year to write the regulations for dispensaries, and could take another year or more for them to begin operations. Rep. Elaine Andrews-Ahearn, D-Exeter, said it also would be a hardship for some patients to travel long distances to the four sanctioned dispensaries. “That’s a long distance for people who are ill to have to travel,” she said. Under the bill, patients diagnosed with cancer, Crohn’s disease and other conditions could possess up to 2 ounces of marijuana. Dispensaries could have a maximum of 80 marijuana plants, 160 seedlings and 80 ounces of marijuana or 6 ounces per qualifying patient. They also would have a limit of three mature cannabis plants, 12 seedlings and 6

Reps & senators agree on $38 million for new womens’ prison in Concord

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire House and Senate negotiators have reached a tentative agreement on a public works budget for the next two years that contains a new women’s prison. The deal struck Tuesday includes $38 million for a 224-bed women’s prison and transitional facility in Concord near the men’s prison. The project is the largest single item in the proposed budget. The bill calls for the design to include enough land for possible expansion to 350 beds in the future. The budget also includes money for new liquor stores in Salem, Epping and Warner. House Public Works Chairman David Campbell said it also includes nearly $5 million to repair the seawall in North Hampton.

State workers negotiate for first raises in 5 years

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire has negotiated tentative contracts with state labor unions. The state announced the agreements Tuesday night during negotiations over a new state budget. The deal provides workers with their first raises in five years. Wages will rise 1.5 percent on July 1; 2.25 percent on July 1, 2014; and 2.25 percent on Jan. 1, 2015. For the first time, workers will pay an annual health insurance deductible of $500 for individuals and $750 for families in 2014 rising to $1,000 for families in 2015. Workers aren’t charged a deductible for going to selected sites for lab work and other services. Workers also would contribute to their dental plan. The package will cost $38 million — a cost yet to be added to the state budget being negotiated.

ounces for each patient who designates the dispensary as his or her treatment center. To qualify for medical marijuana, a person would have to have been a patient of the prescribing doctor for at least 90 days, have tried other remedies, and have exhibited certain symptoms. Only New Hampshire residents would qualify. During negotiations Tuesday, House lawmakers also agreed to not include post-traumatic stress disorder as a qualifying condition. “This is a first step, things can always be added later on,” said Sen. Nancy Stiles, R-Hampton. The bill’s main sponsor, Rep. Donna Schlachman, said she was disappointed that the compromise bill didn’t include what she considers adequate protection for patients using marijuana before the dispensaries are set up.

“We have really opened this bill up so law enforcement in any town that is really against any form of the legalization of therapeutic cannabis is in a position to arrest people simply because they’ve applied for their card and it hasn’t come yet,” said Schlachman, D-Exeter. Hassan said the compromise addresses her concerns and she will sign the bill if the full House and Senate approve the changes. “I have always maintained that allowing doctors to provide relief to patients through the use of appropriately regulated and dispensed medical marijuana is the compassionate and right policy for the state of New Hampshire,” she said. Currently, 18 other states and the District of Columbia allow seriously ill people to use marijuana in their medical treatment.

Windham School Board to reconsider ban on dodgeball

WINDHAM (AP) — Dodgeball seems to be making a comeback at the school district in Windham, N.H. A study committee is recommending the school board permit dodgeball-style, “human target” games in the physical education curriculum, while insisting that safety be a priority. The school board is considering the issue Tuesday night. The board had banned such games this

spring because of concerns about bullying and student safety. The Eagle-Tribune reports more than 400 students signed petitions opposing the decision. The panel was created to take another look at the situation. It noted that dodgeball, as originally designed, was not part of the curriculum. Dodgeball and similar games maintain components of dodgeball, but have been modified to ensure the safety

Obama tiptoes toward war Barack Obama has just taken his first baby steps into a war in Syria that may define and destroy his presidency. Thursday, while he was ringing in Gay Pride Month with LGBT revelers, a staffer, Ben Rhodes, informed the White House press that U.S. weapons will be going to the Syrian rebels. For two years Obama has stayed out of this sectarian-civil war that has consumed 90,000 lives. Why is he going in now? The White House claims it now has proof Bashar Assad used sarin gas to kill 100-150 people, thus crossing a “red line” Obama had set down as a “game changer.” Defied, his credibility challenged, he had to do something. Yet Assad’s alleged use of sarin to justify U.S. intervention seems less like our reason for getting into this war than our excuse. For the White House decided to intervene weeks ago, before the use of sarin was confirmed. And why would Assad have used only tiny traces? Where is the photographic evidence of the disfigured dead? What proof have we the rebels did not fabricate the use of sarin or use it themselves to get the gullible Americans to fight their war? Yet, why would President Obama, whose proud boast is that he will have extricated us from the Afghan and Iraq wars, as Dwight Eisenhower did from the Korean War, plunge us into a new war? He has been under severe political and foreign pressure to do something after Assad and Hezbollah recaptured the strategic town of Qusair and began preparing to recapture Aleppo, the largest city. Should Assad succeed, it would mean a decisive defeat for the rebels and their backers: the Turks, Saudis and Qataris. And it would mean a geostrategic victory for Iran, Hezbollah and Russia, who have proven themselves reliable allies. To prevent this defeat and humiliation, we are now going to ship arms and ammunition to keep the rebels going and in control of enough territory to negotiate a peace that will remove Assad. We are going to make this a fair fight. What is wrong with this strategy? It is the policy of an amateur. It treats war like a game. It ignores the lessons of history. And, as it continues a bloodbath with no prospect of an end to it, it is immoral. In every great civil war of modernity — the Russian civil war of 1919-1921, the Spanish civil war of 1936-1939, the Chinese civil war of 1945-49, one side triumphs and takes power. The other loses and lives with the consequences — defeat, death, exile. What is the likely reaction to our escalation from humanitarian aid to military aid? Counter-escalation.

Russia, Iran and Hezbollah are likely to rush in more weapons and troops to accelerate the progress of Assad’s army before the American weapons arrive. And if they raise and call, what does Obama do? Already, a clamor is being heard from our clients in the Middle East and Congress to crater Syria’s runways with cruise missiles, to send heavy weapons to the rebels, to destroy Assad’s air force on the ground, to bomb his antiaircraft sites. All of these are acts of war. Yet under the Constitution, Congress alone authorizes war. When did Congress authorize Obama to take us to war in Syria? Where does our imperial president get his authority to draw red lines and attack countries that cross them? Have we ceased to be a republic? Has Congress become a mere spectator to presidential decisions on war and peace? As Vladimir Putin seems less the reluctant warrior, what do we do if Moscow answers the U.S. escalation by delivering on its contract to provide A-300 antiaircraft missiles to Damascus, which can cover half of Israel? Obama has put us on the escalator to a war already spilling over Syria’s borders into Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan, a war that is now sundering the entire Middle East along Sunni and Shia lines. He is making us de facto allies of the Al-Qaidalike al-Nusra Front, of Hamas and jihadists from all across the region, and of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egypt’s President Mohammed Morsi just severed ties to Syria and is demanding a “no-fly zone,” which one imagines the United States, not the Egyptian air force, would have to enforce. Our elites shed tears over the 90,000 dead in Syria. But what we are about to do will not stop the killing, but simply lengthen the duration of the war and increase the numbers of dead and wounded. At the top of this escalator our country has begun to ascend is not just a proxy war with Iran in Syria, but a real war that would entail a disaster for the world economy. If the ouster of Assad is what the Sunni powers of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Egypt demand, why not let them do it? Anti-interventionists should demand a roll-call vote in Congress on whether Obama has the authority to take us into this Syrian war.

He won the New Hampshire Republican Primary in 1996.)

LETTERS Obama won’t support any treaty that infringes on 2nd Amendment To The Daily Sun, When contributors to this forum reference Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, and the Tea Party as the sources of their facts I become very suspect. In recent letters, writers have been claiming that the Obama Administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for U.S. citizens through a United Nations treaty. Often referenced in these letters is the U.N. SMALL Arms Treaty — there is no such thing. There is, however, an Arms Trade Treaty. The United Nations is not pursing a global treaty to ban ownership by civilians, they are committed to tightening controls over INTERNATIONAL import, export and transfer of conventional arms into the hands of terrorists and soldiers of war-torn nations. It is not, as conspiracy theorists would have us believe, a full-scale gun CONFISCATION and the placing of lawful gun owners on an international database. It will not ban any weapon category from being traded, but is meant to set regulations on the global, cross border trade of conventional weapons. Also, each sovereign state determines its own laws and regulations for the manufacture, sale and possession of firearms by its citizens — the United Nations will have NO jurisdiction over such matters and no treaty can be imposed upon a sovereign member state. All countries are free to adopt and ratify an Arms Trade Treaty or choose not to. The Obama administration has made it clear that it will not support any treaty that regulates the domestic transfer or ownership of weapons, or that infringes on the Second Amendment. Even, as conser-

vatives and NRA members would like us to believe, Obama wouldn’t be able to “bypass” Congress and circumvent the Second Amendment. All international treaties that the U.S. agrees to require the approval of two-thirds of the Senate before the treaties can be ratified — those would surely be tough votes to get if the treaty banned all firearms. Thirteen Democratic Senators have addressed President Obama and then Secretary of State Clinton saying they wouldn’t support a treaty unless they were guaranteed that it wouldn’t in any way regulate the domestic manufacture, possession or sales of firearms or ammunition in the United States. The President of the United States cannot enact a ban on all weapons for U.S. citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed in the Constitution of the United States and in the 1957 case of Reid v. Covert, the U.S. Supreme Court established that the Constitution supersedes international treaties ratifies by the U.S. Senate. In short, there is no legal way around the Second Amendment other than a further amendment to the Constitution that repeals or alters it, or a Supreme Court decision that radically reinterprets how the Second Amendment is to be applied. Further, I would caution readers to never, ever, trust, under any circumstances, anything any right-winger or left-winger posts on any blog, anytime, under any circumstance. L. J. Siden Gilmanton

Please consider financial support for Laconia’s Multicultural Festival To The Daily Sun, A little over a month from now, Downtown Laconia will come alive with the 12th Annual Multicultural Festival. This is such a great event but, like many events, it takes a village to pull it off successfully. I hope many businesses and individuals that have not yet stepped up consider a sponsorship or donation to help defray costs. Each year the organizers strive for the best in entertainment in Rotary Park that reflects authentic cultural

music and performance, along with ethnic food and crafts. The costs for this entertainment, along with such things as publicity, an infrastructure of tents, a top sound system, a live exotic zoo, and printed programs for the day require a substantial operating budget. There are many opportunities for individuals, groups, teams, and clubs to volunteer for just a few hours before or on the day of the event. More see next page

LETTERS Obama has displayed disdain for transparency & rule of law To The Daily Sun, Remember way back in January 2009 when our president made his “heartfelt promise”, that “transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstone of this presidency”? Remember when he “disremembered” that pledge and signed his very first bill into law? The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was not posted online for five days, nor even one minute prior to his signature. Since then, this administration has been shrouded in more clandestine fog and secrecy than a vintage Dracula movie. The economic and moral life blood is being sucked out of this once vibrant nation by Barack “Stonewall” Obama and his loyal, bully bureaucrats from the Beltway. Move over, Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee, there’s a new actor in town playing the count and he’s injected a deadly dose of contempt for conservatives into his corrosive, rogue agencies. Being loyal progressive soldiers, they intrinsically know their marching orders. No explicit directives or signatures are needed from the POTUS. No smoking gun will be found, for it’s the Marxist, new world order way. All the scandals, alleged or not, have been covered up to the point that even some of the, “gasp” mainstream media have expressed their displeasure. Michelle Malkin cleverly has declared this the “Summer of Belated Epiphanies”. Though I suspect by late summer, the MSM will have forgotten those “enlightened moments” and will return to providing excellent cover, remembering their role as lapdogs for “he who shall remain either “clueless” or “not responsible”. A trip down the memory lane “tunnel of transparency” seems in order does it not? The Affordable Care Act was passed in the most sneaky and partisan of ways, written vaguely and in code and read by no one and likely to become the biggest scandal of all. A $900 billion stimulus package that didn’t stimulate anything, but provided payback to a myriad of Obama backers. If the entire progressive world

cared one whit about knowing who President Obama was before anointing him the savior of the free world, they might have displayed the slightest concern about our dear leader’s mysteriously sealed past. Frank Marshall Davis, Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, much ado about nothing. A deafening silence about his college days, applications, grades, financial assistance and foreign student visas. President Obama has displayed complete disdain for transparency and the rule of law. When he haughtily proclaims, “there is no there there”, he is not being truthful. Some say he is telling flat out lies. Digest the facts and decide for yourself. Our former Secretary of State proclaims, “At this point, what difference does it make?” Madam Secretary, finding out the truth makes all the difference in the world. Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawless obstructionist acts in relation to the DC Voting Rights issue, Black Panther Party voting rights case, Fast & Furious, Solyndra green boondoggle bankruptcy and his refusal to prosecute black on white crime are all gob smacking mind blowers. And his Sergeant Schultz “I no nothing” act with regard to the most recent barrel of scandal/cover ups is nothing short of reprehensible for someone assigned as the chief law enforcement officer of this Constitutional Republic. He must resign now. Have we crossed the rubicon into progressive, soft tyranny? Can we resurrect the 1st and 4th Amendments? Is it time to man the life boats? Where else would we go? Will the likes of Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Jeff Sessions, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson and other true blue conservatives be able to rescue us from this massive erosion of our liberties and awaken their Republican counterparts from their wimpy and complacent slumber? Will the mass of citizenry stand up and fight against this dictatorial onslaught or will Edmund Burke’s warning come to pass — “The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion”. We shall soon find out, won’t we?! Russ Wiles Tilton

Local post offices being used by wind turbine developers To The Daily Sun, An anti-wind farm campaigner yesterday stated that she believes the Newfound Lake region is involved in what she described as “a propaganda war.” She felt strongly that local school children and the Post Office should not be used in a propaganda war. Her stance has been echoed by many members at New Hampshire Wind Watch.

subliminally change local influence. It’s a very clever PR campaign. You have to admire them for that. Holding educational classes during school hours and brainwashing young children on the benefits of wind energy was clever — but what was even more clever was how developers were able to use the Post Office to stamp an ink imprint of a wind turbine on mailings was brilliant. Youngsters and the Post Office can now be added to the list of deceptive tactics. Being “brainwashed” at school or being “brainwashed” at home reading your mail is all part of their strategy to gain local acceptance. What’s next — having children or the Post Office selling plaques and naming rights for each turbine? This is getting crazy. Add to the list a local college receiving special funds, some local businesses being put on retainers and a few Colorado residents coming here see next page

LACONIA — Continuing the facelift and expansion of its facility off Union Avenue, Cantin Chevrolet is acquiring a lot on Mechanic Street, which will be added to its outdoor display area. The 0.19-acre property, which abuts Cantin’s site, lies at the elbow of Mechanic Street just before it joins Union Avenue. An apartment building with four units will be demolished, some 17 trees will be felled and the land will be paved, expanding the display area by about 7,000 square feet. A buffer, 17.5-feet wide planted with juniper bushes, and granite curbing will surround the lot. Representing Cantin’s , Steven Smith of Steven Smith & Associates appeared before the Zoning Board

of Adjustment this week requesting a variance from the requirement to plant street trees along the edge of the lot. He explained that the dealership has operated on the Union Avenue site since 1940 without street trees. Moreover, he said that trees pose a risk to the vehicles on display. The board unanimously granted the variance. Tom Cantin said that the expansion, which follows on the heels of construction of a new showroom, is the latest step in a nationwide campaign to consistently market the Chevrolet brand. He said that the additional space will provide room for nine or 10 vehicles. — Michael Kitch

NSA from page 2 He told lawmakers Snowden’s leaks have caused “irreversible and significant damage to this nation” and undermined the U.S. relationship with allies. When Deputy FBI Director Sean Joyce was asked what is next for Snowden, he said, simply, “justice.” Snowden fled to Hong Kong and is hiding. In the days after the leaks, House Intelligence committee Chairman Mike Rogers cited one attack that he said was thwarted by the programs. In the comments of other intelligence officials, that number grew to two, then 10, then dozens. On Tuesday, Alexander said more than 50 attacks were averted because of the surveillance. These included plots against the New York subway system and a Danish newspaper office that had published cartoon depictions of Muhammad.

In a new example, Joyce said the NSA was able to identify an extremist in Yemen who was in touch with Khalid Ouazzani in Kansas City, Mo., enabling authorities to identify co-conspirators and thwart a plot to bomb the New York Stock Exchange. Ouazzani pleaded guilty in May 2010 in federal court in Missouri to charges of conspiracy to provide material support to a terrorist organization, bank fraud and money laundering. Ouazzani was not charged with the alleged plot against the stock exchange. Joyce said the arrest was made possible by the Internet surveillance program disclosed by Snowden. Joyce also said a terrorist financier in San Diego was identified and arrested in October 2007 because of a phone record provided by the NSA. The individual was making phone calls to a known designated terrorist see next page

Leavitt Park Association hopes $12k start will spur city to prioritize reconstruction of tennis courts LACONIA — The parks and Recreation Commission voted unanimously Monday night to release $6,100 from the Leavitt Park Trust Fund to help pay for reconstructed tennis courts. The request came from Tony Felch of the Leavitt Park Association, who said his organization will match the $6,100 released from the trust fund. According to Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Dunleavy, the entire project would cost in the neighborhood of $75,000 and would havetobeincludedinthecity’s Capital Improvement Plan in order to be completed. Felch’s hope was that if the city understood the people who are closely associated with Leavitt Park were also willing to spend their money on the court, then maybe the courts could be included in an earlier project. Dunleavy said he doesn’t remember the last time the court were reconstructed although he remembers them being resurfaced about six years ago. He and Felch agreed that there are two-inch cracks in the surface and the fence around them is inadequate and that resurfacing the courts won’t be enough this time. — Gail Ober

from preceding page group overseas, Joyce said. He confirmed under questioning that the calls were to Somalia. Alexander said the Internet program had helped stop 90 percent of the 50-plus plots he cited. He said just over 10 of the plots thwarted had a connection inside the U.S. and most were helped by the review of phone records. Still, little was offered to substantiate claims that the programs have been successful in stopping acts of terrorism that would not have been caught with narrower surveillance. In the New York subway bombing case, President Barack Obama conceded the would-be

bomber might have been caught with less sweeping surveillance. Officials have long had the authority to monitor email accounts linked to terrorists but, before the law changed, needed to get a warrant by showing that the target was a suspected member of a terrorist group. In the disclosed Internet program named PRISM, the government collects vast amounts of online data and email, sometimes sweeping up information on ordinary American citizens. Officials now can collect phone and Internet information broadly but need a warrant to examine specific cases where they believe terrorism is involved.

Committee chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., and Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the panel’s top Democrat, said the programs were vital to the intelligence community and assailed Snowden’s actions as criminal. “It is at times like these where our enemies within become almost as damaging as our enemies on the outside,” Rogers said. Ruppersberger said the “brazen disclosures” put the United States and its allies at risk. Committee members were incredulous about the scope of the information that Snowden was able to access and then disclose.

LACONIA — While their roles in reuniting children with their parents is different, Belknap County Corrections Captain Dave Berry and DCYF Supervisor Beverly Dubiel share a common goal — to never have to deal professionally with their clients again. Berry is the second in command at the Belknap County Jail and Dubiel dels with children who have been removed from their parents custody. Their common goal is reuniting children of incarcerated prisoners with their parents. And Berry’s work in that area earned him the 2013 N.H. Division of Children, Youth and Family Services Exemplary Leadership Award. Berry was instrumental in piloting the first county-level program of its type in New Hampshire by working with DCYF to make the supervised visitations possible. “We’ve been asked to allow inmates to have contact with their children,” Berry said, adding that until this year the answer has been, “Nah. We don’t do that. “But this year (meaning 2012) I said, ‘Why not?’” he said. “It’s hard to have contact with children through a plate glass window and a telephone,” said Dubiel from her Laconia office. She and Berry said the circumstances surrounding the visits are case-specific — meaning each inmate must meet a certain set of criteria before being allowed the visit, which takes place in a space in the city set up by DCYF. The child is brought to the location by the person who has custody and the inmate is brought by

an official to the location. The visits are supervised but nevertheless, they are tangible and positive for both parent and child. From Berry’s point of view, the visits can be life-changing for the inmates. “So far, we have had 12 inmates, including two men, participate and none of them have returned to jail,” he said. Berry said the inmate’s punishment is being incarcerated for the amount of time that was determined by the court and part of the punishment is being deprived of seeing their children. “But the children haven’t done anything wrong,” he said. To participate in the visitation program, the inmate must take part in the requisite programs required by the jail, including parenting and nutrition classes, GED education classes, and, in the case of substance abuse, the appropriate drug or alcohol program. He or she must be of good behavior while incarcerated. A violation of jail rules means no visitation and Berry said the people who participate are much more willing to go the extra mile while in jail to have the time with their children. These reunification visits are huge,” he said. “It’s an emotional thing.” For Dubiel, the visitation with a parent can be as life-changing for a child – especially for the young ones. She said it’s very hard for a child to understand why their parent is behind a glass wall and why they have to talk on the telephone. When incarceration ends, Berry’s role ends. When the child is returned to their parent there continues to be a number of programs for both of them but Dubiel said the DCYF roles typically ends after 12 months.

Developers want to put cluster of 14 homes on Robert J. Kozlow, D.D.S, PLLC 5.6 acres across street from Laconia County Club 14 Plymouth Street | P.O. Box 204 By Michael Kitch THE LACONIA DAILY SUN

LACONIA — The Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) this week deferred a decision on a request for a variance that would enable as many as 14 housing units to be built on a waterfront lot at 640 Elm Street of 5.6 acres, just more than half the 10 acres the zoning ordinance requires for cluster developments. Attorney Paul Bordeau, representing himself and his partner in the project Bill Contardo, a resident of South Down Shores who sits on the Planning Board, presented the proposal to the ZBA. Armed only with a sketch of the project, which he said he drew with his own hand, Bordeau spoke for more than an hour, stressing that apart of the 10-acre minimum, the development could satisfy all the requirements of the municipal zoning ordinance and the state shoreline protection statute. The parcel stretches from Elm Street to Lake Opechee, where there is approximately 150 feet of shoreline, and is bounded to the west by Mallard Cove and the east by King Court. A ranch-style house sits now near the middle of the lot. Bordeau said that the driveway, located directly across Elm Street from the Laconia Country Club, would serve as an access road, indicating that eight of the planned units would be ranged along it with the remainder

placed on the eastern portion of the property. He said that the units would about 1,700-square-feet in size and priced around $300,000. Bordeau said that the development would leave at least half the parcel as open space or vegetative buffers. The nearest unit to Lake Opechee would be 500 feet from the water’s edge, further than similarly situated units at Mallard Cove, King Court and Country Club Shores. Likewise, he said that the density of 2.5 units per acre would be less than that of these neighboring residential subdivisions. Bordeau stressed that a conventional subdivision would have a greater impact on the land and the lake. However, Suzanne Perley of the ZBA said without a more detailed plan, showing the placement of the units, roadways, driveways and parking areas, it was difficult to assess the overall impact of the project. “Are we entitled to more than a hand drawn sketched?,” she asked Planning Director Shanna Saunders, who replied “yes.” Dave Greski, a fellow board member, likened the process to “a pilot flying with a blindfold” and when Bordeau explained that he intended to have a site plan with him but due to a mishap the engineer could not complete it. He suggested the ZBA defer further discussion until its next regularly scheduled meeting on July 15.

Laconia attorney & Democratic Party activist will serve year of active duty with Judge Advocate General Corps

LACONIA — Attorney Matt Huot of Wescott, Dyer, Fitzgerald & Nichols will soon be working for Uncle Sam for the next year. A captain in the United States Army Reserve Judge Advocate General’s Corps assigned to the 3rd Legal Support Organization headquartered in Boston, Huot has been mobilized and ordered to Fort Carson, Colorado, home to the 4th Infantry Division. Following in the footsteps of his father David, who reached the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before retiring from the reserve, Huot enlisted in 2010, two years after finishing law school at Gonzaga Univer-

sity in Spokane, Washington. “I saw it as a great opportunity to do interesting work, gain valuable experience and serve my country,” Huot said. He confessed that “it was a bit of a shock when I first heard I’d been mobilized,” but quickly added “now I’m looking forward to it.” Huot said that he and his wife, Sara Beth Hernandez Huot, an assistant Belknap County Attorney, will be leaving for Colorado on July 1. Earlier this month Huot completed his term as chair of the Belknap County Democratic Committee and was succeeded by Kate Miller of Meredith.

TALIBAN from page 2 Officials with the Obama administration said the office in the Qatari capital of Doha was the first step toward the ultimate U.S.-Afghan goal of a full Taliban renunciation of links with al-Qaida, the reason why America invaded the country on Oct. 7, 2001, shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks against the United States. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record, said U.S. representatives will begin formal meetings with the Taliban in Qatar in a few days. The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, said the only way to end the war was through a political solution. “My perspective has always been that this war is going to have to end with political reconciliation, and so I frankly would be supportive of any positive movement in terms of reconciliation, particularly an Afghan-led and an Afghan-owned process that would bring reconciliation between the Afghan people and the Taliban in the context of the Afghan constitution,” he said. Dunford added that he was no longer responsible for the security of the country now that Afghan forces had taken the lead. “Last week I was responsible for security here in Afghanistan,” he said, adding that now it was Karzai’s job. “It’s not just a statement of intent — it’s a statement of fact.” The transition to Afghan-led security means U.S. and other foreign combat troops will not be directly carrying the fight to the insurgency, but will advise and back up as needed with air support and medical evacuations. The handover paves the way for the departure

of coalition forces — currently numbering about 100,000 troops from 48 countries, including 66,000 Americans. By the end of the year, the NATO force will be halved. At the end of 2014, all combat troops will have left and will replaced, if approved by the Afghan government, by a much smaller force that will only train and advise. Obama has not yet said how many soldiers he will leave in Afghanistan along with NATO forces, but it is thought that it would be about 9,000 U.S. troops and about 6,000 from its allies. It is uncertain if the Afghan forces are good enough to fight the insurgents. The force numbered less than 40,000 six years ago and has grown to about 352,000 today. In some of the most restive parts of the country, it may still take a “few months” to hand over security completely to the Afghans, Dunford said. The transition comes at a time when violence is at levels matching the worst in 12 years, further fueling some Afghans’ concerns that their forces aren’t ready. The decision to open the Taliban office was a reversal of months of failed efforts to start peace talks while the militants intensified a campaign targeting urban centers and government installations. Experts warned that it would be a mistake to expect too much. “The keys are to keep expectations low, to remember that a compromise is unlikely because no one can say what it would consist of,” said Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution. He added that in his opinion, the Taliban wrongly “expect to win the war once NATO is largely gone come 2015.” “All that said, it’s a potentially useful step if we don’t confuse ourselves or wind up in polarizing

PRINCIPAL from page one positions in the school district, noting that Woodland Heights Elementary School Principal Dennis Dobe is now the ranking principal in terms of experience with just three years at his job. All of the district’s other principals, Jim McCollum at Laconia High School, Eric Johnson at Laconia Middle School and Kevin Michaud at Elm Street Elementary School have just completed their first years in those positions. McCollum was formerly Middle School principal and Johnson the Elm Street School principal before they took on their new positions. Guilmett wondered what the average was in terms of service for school principals in a district and Fostern said that in New Hampshire elementary school principals average five years with a school district while the average high school principal is with a district for only two or three years. Guilmett said he would like to see more ‘’in-house grooming’’ of potential leadership candidates and Fostern noted that there are many staff members who have attained or are working on a Master’s degree in educational leadership, making them possible candidates. The search for a new assistant superintendent to replace Fostern, who will succeed Bob Champlin at the end of the month, has already drawn

26 applications according to Fostern. She said that a committee of nine people, including Guillmet, are hoping to start interviews next week . ‘’We’re looking for someone with strong leadership skills,’’ said Fostern, who added that she is reviewing what parts of her current job she will continue to do and how that will impact the job responsibilities of a new assistant superintendent. During the board meeting, principals from each of the schools gave a review of what had been accomplished over the last year. McCollum said that there was measurable academic improvement at the high school and credited Steve Tucker, Academic Coordinator for Teaching and Learning, with bringing increased structure and rigor to the curriculum. He said that the school now has 20 Running Start Classes, which allow students to earn college credits, as well as seven Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and for the first time, LHS now offers 10 sections of chemistry. McCollum said there are 58 percent more AP offerings than before and enrollment in those classes is up by 70 percent. He said the high school is raising student expectations as well as performance and that there has been a significant reduction in discipline problems.

MEREDITH from page one fire hydrants. Dempsey stressed that the sole purpose of the improved mapping is to minimize the time required for firefighters and emergency medical technicians to respond to emergencies by directing them to the right place in the least time. Chief Jim Hayes of the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association said that the mapping is especially useful for personnel called to other towns with which they may not be familiar. “It’s a must in my eyes,” said Fire Chief Ken Jones, who told the selectmen that he pressed for mapping twice before only to find the initiative stifled at the staff level. “I played a lot of baseball in my time,” he remarked. “I’ve got two strikes and this is my third. I don’t intend to strike out.” In the past town officials have been reluctant to adopt the system for fear

having to tackle issues such as similar sounding street names and addresses out of numerical sequence. In particular, the numbering of island properties is unorthodox. Dempsey said that DESC would make recommendations to overcome inconsistencies, but assured the selectmen they would not be required to change street names or address numbers. RILEY from page one St. was scheduled for 8:30 a.m. yesterday but Public Defender Jesse Friedman filed for a continuance, saying he needed more time to prepare. Riley is accused of the second degree murder of the 27-year-old Zachary March in the early morning hours of June 10. Responding police found an unresponsive March in the home after responding to a call. Riley was also in the house. see next page

from preceding page Affidavits regarding the homicide have been sealed by Judge Jim Carroll and were initially sealed from Friedman, who had to file a motion to get access to them in order to mount a defense. The motion for the defense team and only the defense team to see the file was granted on June 13. A probable cause hearing is not a trial but hearing whereby the prosecution — in this case the N.H. Attorney General — must make the case that police had enough reason to arrest Riley and charge him with the homicide. Riley, who is being held without bail, will also have an opportunity for Friedman to argue for different bail conditions. The defense team can forgo the probable cause hearing and wait until after their client is indicted by a grand jury.

JEEP from page 2 The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the agency that monitors vehicle safety, contends that the Jeep gas tanks can rupture if hit from the rear, spilling gas and causing a fire. NHTSA said a three-year investigation showed that 51 people had died in fiery crashes in Jeeps with gas tanks positioned behind the rear axle. Chrysler had until Tuesday to formally respond to NHTSA. Two weeks ago, Chrysler said that the vehicles aren’t defective, despite prior statements to the contrary from NHTSA. The company vouched for the vehicles’ safety again Tuesday. Chrysler said that dealers will inspect the vehicles and install trailer hitches to protect the gas tanks. The company said vehicles without hitches will get

They didn’t want to take the public relations hit,” Gordon says. Gordon says Chrysler’s image will still get dinged a little “because it looks as if they have done the right thing only because they were forced to.”

CONCORD (AP) — The Democratic-led House budget negotiating team proposed a new plan Tuesday to expand Medicaid under the federal health care overhaul law that would commit the state for three years only. A proposed expansion of Medicaid has been a sticking point in budget negotiations for lawmakers this year. States can choose to expand it as part of a key component of the fed-

eral health care overhaul, which will be fully implemented Jan. 1. If New Hampshire were to expand the program, the U.S. government would pick up the cost for the first three years and 90 percent over the long haul. States can withdraw from covering adults at any time without penalty. The Republican-led Senate has called for a study of possible expansee next page

BULGER from page 2 priate descriptions for him. “You’re different from a serial killer how?” Brennan asked. “A serial murderer kills for fun. They like it,” Martorano said. “I don’t like it. I never did like it.” Martorano served 12 years in prison after he cut a deal with prosecutors and agreed to testify against Bulger. He is one of three former Bulger loyalists who are expected to be the prosecution’s star witnesses against Bulger. Bulger fled Boston in 1994 and was one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives for more than 16 years until he was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., in 2011. In testimony Monday, Martorano said he decided to become a government witness after learning that Bulger and Flemmi had been working as FBI informants. Bulgers’ lawyers deny that he ever provided information to the FBI. In opening statements to the jury last week, attorney J.W. Carney Jr. said Bulger paid FBI agents to tip him and his gang about investigations so they could avoid prosecution. Martorano said he killed people when they hurt or threatened his family, or if they threatened to tell authorities about the gang’s illegal activities. He said he always tried to help people he was close to, either by giving them money or in other ways. “I always tried to be a nice guy,” he said. But Bulger’s lawyer grilled Martorano about several instances where he killed the wrong person or innocent people who were with the intended target. Brennan asked Martorano whether he regretted killing a 19-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy who were

in a car with Herbert Smith, a man who had beaten up Flemmi, when he jumped into the car and shot all three. Martorano said he saw three silhouettes as he approached the car. Since he expected Smith to be alone, he thought Smith may have planned to ambush him when he got in the car, so he killed all three people, he said. “I did feel bad. I still feel bad. It’s the worst thing I did, but I can’t change it,” he said of the 1968 killings. Bulger glanced briefly at Martorano as he took the witness stand for a second day. Before he testified Monday, the two men had not seen each other since 1982, Martorano said. Brennan questioned Martorano extensively about the killing of John Callahan, a Boston businessman whom Martorano described as a close friend. Martorano said he reluctantly agreed to kill Callahan at the insistence of Flemmi and Bulger, who said Callahan would likely finger the gang in the 1981 killing of Tulsa, Okla., businessman Roger Wheeler. Martorano testified earlier that he waited in the parking lot of a Tulsa country club until he saw Wheeler get in his car, then shot him between the eyes. “I agreed to go along with (killing Callahan) because they were my partners and I couldn’t vouch for him not getting everybody in trouble,” Martorano said. He said he offered to pick Callahan up at a Florida airport, where he killed him. “Did you look him in the eye?” Brennan asked Martorano. “I did,” Martorano replied. He said he told Callahan to sit in the front seat, then he got in the back seat and shot Callahan once in the back of the head. The defense is set to continue crossexamining Martorano on Wednesday.

Police visit Pat’s Hernandez’ home in homicide investigation NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — State and local police spent hours at the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez on Tuesday night as another group of officers searched an industrial park about a mile away where a body was discovered the day before. Police at the scene and prosecutors would not comment on the actions while Sports Illustrated, citing an unidentified source, reported that Hernandez was not believed to be a suspect in what was being treated as a possible homicide. The magazine says

police have spoken with Hernandez. Sports Illustrated reports that the link between Hernandez and the case was a rented Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island plates that police had been searching for. The Sun Chronicle of Attleboro, Mass., says the SUV was registered to Enterprise and investigators wanted to analyze it for fingerprints. The Associated Press could not independently confirm the reports. No cause of death had been released for the body found about 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Gomes 9th inning homer gives Red Sox sweep of doubleheader BOSTON (AP) — Jonny Gomes hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, completing a doubleheader sweep. Daniel Nava was aboard on a leadoff walk when Gomes followed with a towering shot off Joel Peralta (1-3) that cleared the Green Monster and bounced off the sign just to the right of the foul pole. It was a dramatic ending to a very long day, which started at 1 p.m. with Boston’s 5-1 win in the opener, which was delayed almost three hours by rain. Felix Doubront pitched eight shutout innings for Boston in the night game. In the opener, Tampa Bay managed just six hits against Alfredo Aceves and four relievers, losing 5-1. Aceves (4-1) allowed one run and three hits in five innings while defeating Chris Archer for the second

time in less than a week. The right-hander also pitches six effective innings in a 2-1 victory against the Rays on Wednesday. Aceves, who has won each of his last three starts, was limited to 75 pitches when the game was delayed with two outs in the bottom of the fifth. He struck two and walked three. David Ortiz drove in three runs for the Red Sox, who had lost four of six. The rain delay in the fifth inning came in the makeup of an April 12 rainout. The Red Sox invited fans who stuck out Tuesday’s first game to return for the second for free. The opener ended after the scheduled 7:05 p.m. start time for the nightcap — by that point, with little turnaround time, Game 2 fans were already wandering into Fenway Park.

from preceding page sion, and the House team proposed creating a group to do so, stipulating that the commission would have to present a plan in August meeting to the joint legislative Fiscal Committee for approval. The committee is composed of five House members and five Senate members and acts on budget issues. It currently is divided along party lines. If the Fiscal Committee failed to approve a plan by Sept. 1, the state would expand Medicaid for three years — the time for which the federal government has promised to pay 100 percent of the costs. The commission would be tasked with developing a plan to assign people eligible for Medicaid either to subsidized private employer insurance or Medicaid. The plan would have to comply with the federal Affordable Care Act. Either way, Medicaid would be expanded Jan. 1. While the Senate proposed a study group, the House budget proposed expanding Medicaid indefinitely. Resolving the difference is a key to reaching compromise over a two-year, $10.7 billion budget for the state beginning July 1. House Finance Chairwoman Mary Jane Wallner, a Concord Democrat, said delaying could cost New Hampshire $340 million a year of the $2.5 billion

New Hampshire is estimated to receive over the first seven years if it expands beginning Jan. 1. “That would cost the state and our people immensely,” she said. Senate President Peter Bragdon, a Milford Republican, said Monday that Senate Republicans are not opposed to expanding Medicaid, but want time to study what the impact would be and if an alternative could be crafted better suited to New Hampshire than simply adding an estimated 58,000 poor adults to the state’s Medicaid program. Senate Finance Chairman Chuck Morse, a Salem Republican, called the House’s proposal a good first step, but predicted the Senate’s response would be different. New Hampshire’s Medicaid program covers lowincome children, parents with nondisabled children under 18, pregnant women, senior citizens and people with disabilities. The expansion would add anyone under age 65 who earns up to 138 percent of federal poverty guidelines, which is about $15,000 for a single adult. Earlier Tuesday, House and Senate budget negotiators took another look at a proposed $1.5 million cut to the New Hampshire Veterans Home that could force residents to pay for their own incontinence supplies. Both chambers propose cutting the Veterans Home’s budget, but now find that $260,000 of the proposed cut would mean it would no longer buy res-

Interlakes Summer Theatre opens 2013 Season June 25 with musical ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’ MEREDITH — The Interlakes Summer Theatre, a professional summer stock theatre company, in residence at the air-conditioned Interlakes Community Auditorium at the Inter-Lakes High School, will open its 2013 season with “Ain’t Misbehavin”. The musical is a tribute to the black musicians of the 1920s and ‘30s who were part of the Harlem Renaissance, an era of growing creativity, cultural awareness, and ethnic pride, and takes its title from the 1929 Waller song “Ain’t Misbehavin’”. It was a time when Manhattan nightclubs like the Cotton Club and the Savoy Ballroom were the playgrounds of high society and Lenox Avenue dives were filled with piano players banging out the new beat known as swing. Five performers present an evening of rowdy, raunchy, and humorous songs that encapsulate the various moods of the era and reflect Waller’s view of life as a journey meant for pleasure and play. The show runs for one week only, June 25-June 30, Tuesday to Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Sunday at 7 p.m, with matinees on Wednesday and Thursday at 2 p.m. Adult tickets are $31, Senior tickets $27, Students $22. If purchased in advance there is a $1discount. For more info, seat availability and ticket purchase, visit the website or call or visit the box office at 1-888-245-6374

Hale Golf Classic set for Friday at Waukewan Golf Club MEREDITH — The sixth annual Dexter Hale Memorial Golf Classic will be held at Waukewan Golf Club Friday, June 21.

porter of the Rotary scholarship fund. “The Hale Family and The Waukewan Golf Club have been very generous supporters of our community for many years,” said Ted Fodero, of the Meredith Rotary Club who worked with the family to establish the tournament. “We want to honor Dexter’s generosity, kindness and long-time commitment to the Rotary Club, and there is no better way to do that than to include the game of golf, and the beautiful Waukewan Club, which Dex also truly loved.” Pre-registration for this golf tournament is recommended. For information and registration, call Ted Fodero at 603-279-4591, Craig Hale at 603-279-6661, Vynnie Hale at 603-279-0557, or Bob Kennelly at 603-279-5393.

Tips to Cope with Caregiving and Senior Diabetes Diabetes is known to raise the risk of a number of major health problems, including heart disease and kidney failure. More recently, studies have also linked diabetes to speedier mental decline and dementia in seniors. We recently had a woman walk into our office with concerns for her father struggling with Diabetes. He was having frequent hypoglycemic episodes, and one of them occurred while she was not home. She called him on the phone and he was confused, could not remember if he had eaten, and could not follow instructions to check his blood sugar. Our agency was able to step in and provide help. Our RN performed a medication review and adjusted timing of medication administration to coincide with meal times. We were able to provide education to the family regarding regular meals, regular blood sugar checks, and regular visits to the doctor. Evenings when his daughter is working, we now have an LNA who visits to assist with blood glucose monitoring, preparing a healthy diabetic meal, assist with exercises, and assist with bathing/dressing to monitor his skin condition. Age is one of the most significant factors in the risk for diabetes. The American Diabetes Association found that 23.1% of seniors over the age of 60 have diabetes. Diabetes is a disease that can be positively affected

by caregiving, so an understanding of the risks, treatments and even prevention are essential in protecting your loved one. Diabetes in seniors can manifest itself differently than what you might traditionally associate with the disease in younger people. For instance, one of the scariest side effects of diabetes in seniors is heart disease. Others can include kidney failure, eye complications such as blindness or glaucoma, foot and skin complications, deterioration of mental health, high blood pressure, arterial disease & stroke. Jennifer Harvey, RN BSN, Owner of LIVE FREE HOME HEALTH CARE suggests, “Living with senior diabetes is really a question of making good life management choices and as a caregiver, you can strongly influence many of those lifestyle choices. Learning what works best is much of the battle against diabetes.” LIVE FREE HOME HEALTH CARE recommends the following: • Food Choices are #1 - First and foremost, the most important part of managing diabetes is diet. Caregivers are most likely responsible for shopping or meals, so understanding what foods are good for diabetes and what foods should be avoided can make

all the difference. Highcarbohydrate foods, such as breads, pastas, potatoes, chips, candy and desserts are foods that will increase blood sugar levels. Keeping track of blood sugar is crucial – higher blood sugar can lead to stroke and heart attack. • Get Moving - Exercise is the second most important step to controlling diabetes. Depending on the senior’s ability, any type of exercise is helpful. Running, walking, tennis, golf, gardening – even yoga – provide wonderful benefits for the heart, muscles and mental health. Make sure to check with the doctor prior to beginning any new exercise program. Find out what the senior enjoys and try and incorporate that into a daily routine. • Be Aware - The third tip in managing diabetes in seniors is to regularly check for signs of complications. Be aware that seniors don’t always express difficulties or symptoms. If dementia is in play or even a little bit of denial, you won’t necessarily hear complaints. As a caregiver of a senior with diabetes, keeping your eyes and ears open is key. Make sure to check the senior’s feet for infection, as neuropathy is a frequent problem with diabetics and loss of feeling can be common, causing unreported open sores or lack of circu-


lation. Also be sure to check skin frequently for signs of fungus, infection and even boils. Finally, it is important to medically monitor with blood sugar tests and journals, and ensure that the senior has enough tests and supplies. Diabetes does not have to be scary for a senior and definitely not for family caregivers. For more tips or information, please contact LIVE FREE HOME HEALTH CARE at or call 603-217-0149.

facts, and consult professionals who can help with the decision-making process.” In many instances, moving to a retirement community can have financial benefits as well as provide improvements in quality of life. While something may first appear as added expenses, upon further investigation seniors may find that a move is to their financial advantage. According to ACTS Retirement-Life Communities, a leader in life care living, many seniors under-appreciate the hidden costs of homeownership. “There’s no such thing as a free home and on-going expenses eat into retirement savings. These include such things as real estate taxes, utility bills, homeowner’s insurance, home maintenance, lawn care and snow removal, security, trash removal, and many other costs.” According to ACTS, housing experts say annual repair and maintenance expenses run

about 1 to 3 percent of your home’s current market value. Getting an accurate understanding of your current expenses as a homeowner is an important first step. Once compiled, you can compare what you’re paying now vs. other options you want to consider. Compiling your regular expenses and comparing these with monthly expenses for different retirement living options is actually the easy part. More complex financial implications deserve the attention and assistance of professional advisors. Consider consulting a financial advisor, CPA, estate planners, insurance professionals and your attorney. They can advise you on everything from long term care insurance to tax implications as well as investments and financial planning, all of which can be impacted by your senior living decisions. Frequently, seniors will work closely with an Estate Planning attorney during this process. Jeanne Saffan, a senior attorney with Sulloway & Hollis advises clients on these matters. “Many people think estate planning is only for the purpose of determining who will receive your assets after death, however, good estate planning involves the management of assets as we age. Where to live, projected income, health and the proximity of family are all factors. In addition, it is important to consider who will be available in the event of medical emergency or other life altering event that may require the assistance of someone with the legal ability to act on one’s behalf until it is no longer needed.” Charlton explains that comparing different retirement communities isn’t as easy as it might first appear. “The good news is there are lots of options. The bad news is there are lots of options, which means it’s almost impossible to do a simple applesto-apples comparison.” This is where you really need to do your homework and carefully study the details. Is there an entrance fee, as is common with continuing care retirement communities? What portion of the entrance fee is refundable should you leave the community? What happens if you run out of money and can no longer afford to pay for your care? Some contracts with charitable care continuing care retirement communities assure that you will continue to live in and receive care in the community for as long as needed regardless of ability to pay. Other contracts might require the resident to move out of the community if their funds are depleted. You’ll also want to know what services are

included in the monthly fee that you pay. Are things like utilities, transportation, meals and activities included or are there additional charges added to the monthly fee? Some communities bundle these into the monthly fee while others have a lower monthly fee but charge extra for anything additional. “I call it the pizza model where you can buy a cheese pizza for next to nothing but by the time you’ve added toppings it ends up costing you a lot of money,” Charlton explained. “There isn’t one model that is better than other, it’s simply a matter of choice and the key to making the right decision for you is in understanding the details.” Future access to higher levels of care and the associated expenses are critically important to both your lifestyle and your finances. Some continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) have monthly fees that don’t change with a move from one level of care to another. For example, one might move into independent living and then later transition into assisted living or nursing care. In a “Type A” CCRC you might expect to pay a monthly fee of approximately $4,000 when you move into independent living and then that fee would stay the same if and when you move to assisted living or nursing. The attraction of this model is that you won’t incur fee increases if you need or want higher levels of care. “Type C” CCRCs have different monthly fees for different levels. For example, you could move into an independent living cottage or apartment and pay $1,100-$1,600 depending on the accommodation. Then if you move into assisted living the monthly fee would increase to $3,500-$4,500 and a move to nursing would increase the cost to an average of $270/day. In the first example, the costs of providing higher levels of care are built into the fee that you pay when you first move into independent living. The downside is that you are essentially paying for higher levels of care even though you may never access them or might only access them for a short period of time. In the second model, which is used by Taylor and many other CCRCs, you only pay for higher levels of care if and when you transition to assisted living or nursing. Statistics show that only 2-4% of the population will spend any time in nursing care in their lives, so you may prefer a contract type where you only pay for higher levels of care if you ever need them. “I met with a couple recently and the husband described this as the ‘Yankee model’—you get what you pay for,” said Charlton. see page 20

Friendly neighbors take you line dancing To the left, one, two, three, to the right, one, two, three – slide and twirl, and to the left three, two one, slide and twirl. And again…… So – my neighbor tried to talk me into line dancing and I was like – uh – no thanks. But she called me every time she returned from what she called fun and kept bugging me. I finally relented. Boy am I glad I did. She and I have been going together now for a month and what fun it is. It is good exercise, it is good for my brain (you know you have to think and move at the same time) and I have more friends now than just my neighbor. (Above was related to us at Wesley Woods, by a current resident). Remember when you lived in a neighborhood where folks looked out for one another, said hi when they picked up their paper in the morning and made sure that if something looked strange around your house, that they would check on you? That is what life is like at Wesley Woods. Folks have told us that we are not

a retirement community, because to them that means sitting on the porch rocker watching the world go by. These folks are making it happen. One couple is presently in NY visiting family and will be leaving for a 10-day trip to Switzerland later this summer. Another just returned from a week in D.C. at her daughter’s, and a third just shared the special event that a high school graduation is with their award-winning grand-daughter. And, sure you can do all these things in the home where you raised those kids, but what is better is not worrying about the house when you leave and being able to share the events with your neighbor-friends. And then, we have the couple who both wish they could be retired and get to do all these fun things at their leisure, but they are still working. And they love that the driveway and roadway is plowed by 4:00am so they can get to work on time, anytime of year. So – who wants to join the line-dancing class?

Professional advisors like those listed earlier can help you to avoid financial pitfalls while also making the decision-making process easier. 4. Talk to the residents who live there.

“Again, there’s no one model that is better than another. But you want to make sure you understand the different contract options so you can choose the one that’s best for you. Weighing the financial pros and cons of different retirement living options can seem daunting at first but you can make the task easier by following a few simple suggestions. 1. Do your homework. Know exactly what you are paying now and what you can expect to pay when you make a move to a retirement community. Be sure to know what is included and what will require additional fees. 2. Sit down face-to-face with the marketing or sales professionals at each of the communities you are

Andrew ‘Drew’ C. Bartlett, 27 TUCSON, Ariz. — Andrew Charles Bartlett, known to many simply as Drew, tragically passed away on June 2, 2013, in a house fire in Tucson, Arizona. Drew was born in Laconia, NH, on November 25, 1985. A resident of Tucson for most of his life, Drew graduated from the Sabino High School and then attended Pima Community College where he received Associates Degrees in Liberal Arts and Business. His deep passion was in computer technology, which led Drew to spend his time on the computer, mastering the animated world of video games. Drew spent his summers visiting family in New Hampshire, where he frequented the beautiful lakes and mountains. Many nights were spent on his father’s porch playing card games, where he was competitive in nature and was hard to beat. He had an unbelievable memory of which cards were played and knew exactly which were left. He had a quick wit, and a great sense of humor. An avid sports fan, Drew enjoyed visiting Fenway Park to cheer on the Boston Red Sox with his family. He enjoyed football

and developed a profound enthusiasm for baseball cards, of which he collected thousands over his lifetime. Drew is survived by his mother Carol Bartlett and her partner Buddy Koches of Tucson, Arizona; his father Andrew and wife Anne Bartlett of Gilmanton, NH; his halfbrother Stephen Bartlett of Gilmanton, NH; his half-sister Lydia Bartlett of Gilmanton, NH; his stepsister Samantha and her husband Adam Hawkins of Gilmanton, NH; his paternal grandfather John Bartlett of Gilmanton, NH; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins who will greatly miss his free spirit and kind heart. Drew is pre-deceased by maternal grandparents Hazel and Ed Needham, paternal grandmother Charlotte Bartlett and his stepsister Amy Annis Colby. A celebration of Drew’s life will be held on Sunday, June 23, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Andy and Anne Bartlett’s house at 111 Griffin Road in Gilmanton, NH. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the NH Humane Society, Meredith Center Rd., Laconia, NH. 03246.

Gunstock Willdflower Trek led by John Cameron

Friday, June 21st @ the Nordic Ski Center @ Gunstock Mountain John Cameron, whose day job is an attorney-mediator and conflict resolution professional, is a seasoned photographer and self-taught naturalist living in Gilford. With a particular interest in the beauty and grandeur of Nature’s wonderful gift - the extraordinary artistry of wildflowers - John has been studying and photographing New Hampshire wildflowers for several decades. In 2009 he began constructing the wildflower website, the site includes photographs and descriptions of nearly 400 wildflower species and the number continues to grow yearly. John also writes a weekly wildflower column for the Salmon Press newspapers entitled “The Ways of Wildflowers.” He describes his love of nature and wildflowers this way: “I can be out on a trek and see a wildflower I haven’t seen for some time and just feel the glee of a new discovery all over again.” The trek around Cobble Mountain at Gunstock will start from the Nordic Ski Center parking lot at Gunstock Mountain and will leave promptly at 10 a.m. It is necessary for participants to be assembled at 9:45 a.m. Please dress for the weather, we will be hiking rain or shine. It will be necessary to bring your own water and bug repellant (ticks have been a problem this spring). Proper footwear is essential since the trail includes woodlands, grassy areas, marshy areas and a beaver pond. Check out Mr. Cameron’s website (see above) prior to the hike.

approach to pyrography in general. O’Brien specializes in wildlife with a focus on eyes and textures, but also enjoys portraiture and miniature burning on leather, fine maple plywood and tagua nuts. She has won numerous awards for her work including first place in an all pyrographic international show in 2011. O’Brien is also offering the class “Pyrography: An Introduction to Woodburning” at the Meredith Gallery on Saturday, June 22. Students will learn about equipment, nib use and care, set-up and safety, prep and transfer methods. They will learn how to create tonal value and textures with different marks and experiment with color, and perhaps most importantly, how to correct mistakes. Students do not need to know how to draw to be successful, and projects will be explained and demonstrated step by step. A list of required supplies and tools is available at the Meredith Gallery. Students should bring a lunch as this class runs a full 7 hours. Tuition is $95 per student, and there is no additional materials fee. Space is limited. Pre-registration is required in advance by calling the gallery at (603) 279-7920.

Winnipesaukee Playhouse picks comedy for first show in new theater

MEREDITH — Garry, Dotty, Brooke, Frederick, Belinda and Selsdon are all actors in an illrehearsed play called Nothing On. Add director Lloyd and stage managers Poppy and Tim into the mix and you get to see into the entertaining love triangles that form as the Winnipesaukee Playhouse kicks off their 2013 Professional Summer Season with a hilarious production of Noises Off in their brand new Meredith theatre from June 19-29. Noises Off follows the on-and off-stage antics of an acting troupe as they stumble from bumbling dress rehearsal to disastrous closing night. Everything that can go wrong does, as actors desperately try to hang on to their lines, their performances and the furniture. Add a slippery plate of sardines and many slamming doors, and you have the most hilarious backstage farce ever written. The inspiration for Noises Off came when playwright Michael Frayn was watching a performance he had written from the wings, and decided that it was funnier from behind than in front. Noises Off premiered in London in 1982 and was a huge hit, transferring to Broadway and earning Tony Award nominations for Best Play and winning a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble. The Winni Playhouse Professional Company is very excited for this production which includes some familiar and some fresh faces. Returning actors are Kevin Killavey, Alex Jacobs, Richard Brundage, Rebecca A.K. Turner, Tonya Free and Donna Schilke. The Playhouse is welcoming AJ Ditty, Nicholas Wilder and Nicole Soriano for their first year with the Winni Playhouse Professional Company. The director Keith Weirich, is the artistic director of the Peacock Players youth theatre company, and directed this play for them last year where it won Best Youth Production at the New Hampshire Theatre Awards. Marketing Director Lesley Pankhurst says, “This is a great first production for our new campus. We are really excited to start out with a side-splitting farce for our patrons’ first look into our new theatre. The slapstick comedy and witty banter will appeal to all audiences.” The state-of-the-art theatre seats approximately 200 patrons and has a new bar and menu, with preshow dinners catered by Magic Foods Restaurant Group, the owners of Canoe in Center Harbor and O Steak and Seafood in Laconia. In addition to the theatre, the Playhouse has a brand new outdoor amphitheatre, deck and nature trail. On selected nights, free pre-show entertainment is provided on the outdoor amphitheatre and picnics are encouraged. Noises Off will be the first play of the summer season performed at the brand new Winnipesaukee Playhouse campus in Meredith. The Summer 2013 season is sponsored by Meredith Village Savings Bank and Laconia Harley-Davidson. Noises Off is further supported by the sponsorship of Bank of New Hampshire and Misiaszek Turpin Architects pllc. It is recommended for ages 12 and above. Performances start June 19 and are Mondays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee at 2 p.m. on Monday. The Wednesday, June 26 performance will include a postshow discussion and Q & A with the cast and crew. Tickets are $27 for seating in the orchestra, $22 for seating in the first row of the balcony and $15 for seating in the second row in the balcony. Tickets can be ordered by calling (603) 279-0333 or by using a credit card at Student rush tickets will also be available at the door the night of the performance for $17 and are subject to availability.

both parties in a dispute, but don’t withhold your judgment when asked. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you use your talents, you excite fans and peers alike. Watching and experiencing enthrall the former, and the latter are inspired to unleash their own talent in answer to your gesture. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). After an unexpected interruption, it feels like that connection you made will never come to fruition. But don’t give up. The other person is simply waiting for you to close the circuit. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you feel as if you’re on the outside looking in, your face pressed against the glass, it’s easy to forget that there’s a whole vast world behind you. Don’t forget to turn around and see it. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 19). In the past, you’ve had fewer options, but now you’ll find yourself in a position to be discerning and selective. What happens in July makes you more interesting and also more interested in others. A certain someone or something enthralls you in August. September brings a self-imposed challenge and a well-won victory. Capricorn and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 39, 42 and 15.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Many ideas will come to you, and there is a real gem among them. Write them down so you can scrutinize your collection later and find the truly valuable item. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You often hear someone say, “It’s not a competition.” “But it is!” you reply in your mind. Take that competitive spirit and put it to good use by remembering your most important competitor: yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It might seem like a strange thing to consider, but you have a starring role in someone’s memory bank, and thus you have the chance to make the story more interesting. You’ll be in just the mood to seize this opportunity. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Problems at work or at school are multiplying, but you’ll stay on top of them as long as you remember to stop, take a deep breath and prioritize instead of worrying. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some think that being able to entertain other points of view means your own isn’t so strong -- untrue! It is precisely because your worldview is so solid that you are able to entertain other ideas. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A positive spin on an awkward situation will do wonders for flagging morale, but resist the temptation to let your emphasis on the bright side spin out of control into a denial of problems that require attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It goes something like this: You stray from the boring path, get lost, struggle, think you know where you’re going, wind up worse off, try again, find your way back and are happy for the adventure of it all. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your past pain was like a magic growing potion that escalated you quickly through many levels of knowing. Now you are wise. There’s a memory, and a sadness, that will always be with you in some way. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

Page 28 — THE LACONIA DAILY SUN, Wednesday, June 19, 2013


Dear Annie: My sweet, kind 33-year-old college-educated husband has regressed into a teenager. He has always been a marijuana user, but a year ago, he befriended “Jake,” and now the two of them smoke marijuana daily. They spend their evenings riding skateboards, playing video games and hanging out with college kids. I would like to buy a house, have children and further my education. My husband says he wants the same things, but he always has an excuse for not saving money. We both have good jobs, and he promises to start putting money aside “next month.” It never happens. I know he won’t give up pot. He says he will get divorced before he quits smoking marijuana, and I knew that before we married. Am I wrong to put my foot down and expect him to grow up? Or do I need to lighten up and let him have his fun? -Feeling Like My Husband’s Mother Dear Feeling: You and your husband do not have compatible goals. He wants to be an irresponsible child while you do all the work. And so far, you have gone along with that. Maybe he’s afraid to grow up, maybe he’s too addicted to pot, maybe he’s simply a Peter Pan. Ask him to come with you for counseling so the two of you can work on a more equitable partnership. If he is unwilling or if nothing changes, there is no future here unless you want to spend the next several years mothering this grownup child. It’s a painful lesson to learn that love isn’t always enough to turn someone into marriage material. Dear Annie: My friend’s son married a lovely young woman whose only brother died a few years ago. The wife kept her maiden name after marriage for professional reasons. The couple is expecting their first child, and the wife would like to name the boy after her deceased brother, giving him her last name. Her reasoning is that it would ensure that her

family name is carried on. Her husband has male cousins who can carry on the family name, but she doesn’t. My friend is in shock. If her son agrees to this irrational request, she believes her family name stops there. In her mind, cousins do not count in carrying on one’s lineage. However, she doesn’t want to cause a family rift by openly and strongly opposing this possibility. Do you have any suggestions for her? -- Friend of the Family Dear Friend: This is completely up to the couple, and your friend should try to stay out of it. Frankly, the wife has the stronger claim for carrying on a family name. It’s also possible that the couple will have other sons. And plenty of women object to the old-fashioned (and sexist) notion that only the boys count when it comes to lineage. We know your friend is hurt and disappointed, but if she wants a relationship with her son, his wife and their child, she needs to put this aside. Dear Annie: I shared the same frustration as “Troubled in High School,” the 16-year-old girl who can only think about boys, drugs, alcohol, dating and grades. She wants her life to be exciting. I’d like to suggest she try participating in her school’s community service club. I was a member of my school’s “Key Club,” which is sponsored by the Kiwanis organization. It gave me the opportunity to focus on things outside of myself and my desires as a teenager and allowed me to put my energy into doing good. My friends who did drugs respected me enough to never offer me drugs. I hated that my parents were so strict, but now that I’m almost 30, I can appreciate that they molded me into an independent person who is confident in leading instead of following. There is nothing wrong with being a perfect little angel. I’m proud of that reputation. -- Happy in Hawaii
