Laconia multicultural in sense that many nations are represented in the population but city is still 95% ‘white’ Most political refugees who were resettled here in groups have moved on BY MICHAEL KITCH THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — During the 12 years since Multicultural Market Day, the city’s annual celebration of ethnic and national variety now called the Multicultural Festival,
debuted in 2001 the city has grown more diverse, but not by much. In 2000, the population numbered 16,211, of whom 15,885, or 96.8-percent, were counted as “white” while 10 years later, the population had shrunk to 15,951 with the
15,073 “whites” representing 94.5-percent of the total. Race, however, is only one measure of diversity, which masks the variety of ethnic groups and nationalities. For instance, the number of Asians in the city increased more than threefold between 2000 and 2010, see MULTICULTURAL page 9

OJ. wins small victory in bid for freedom
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — O.J. Simpson won a small victory Wednesday in his bid for freedom as Nevada granted him parole on some of his 2008 convictions for kidnapping and armed robbery involving the holdup of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel room. But the decision doesn’t mean the 66-year-old Simpson will be leaving prison anytime soon. The former NFL star was convicted on multiple charges and still faces at least four more years behind bars on sentences that were ordered to run consecutively. The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners released its decision in favor of Simpson’s parole request. Commissioners noted Simpson’s “positive institutional record” and his participation in programs addressing “behavior that led to incarceration.” The board noted Simpson had no previous criminal convictions and still has consecutive sentences to serve see OJ page 7

U.S. economy grew at anemic rate of 1.7% in 2nd Q WASHINGTON (AP) — A key government report and a statement from the Federal Reserve made clear Wednesday that the U.S. economy still needs help. The economy grew at a lackluster 1.7 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter, the Commerce Department said. That was better than a revised 1.1 percent rate for the first quarter but still far too sluggish to quickly reduce unemployment. The Fed’s statement suggested it’s too
early to signal a pullback in its $85 billion a month in Treasury and mortgage bond purchases. The bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term interest rates down to spur borrowing and spending and invigorate the economy. In a statement after a policy meeting, Fed policymakers slightly downgraded their assessment of the economy. They also noted that mortgage rates, which have helped drive home sales, have risen from
record lows. And the Fed noted that inflation has remained consistently below its 2 percent target and is still a potential threat to the economy. Continued stimulus by the central bank could lead to higher inflation. Some economists said they thought the Fed was now less likely to start scaling back its bond buying in September, when many analysts have said it would probably do so. see ECONOMY page 9
Military orders Egyptian police to clear camps of Morsi supporters CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s military-backed government on Wednesday ordered the police to clear two Cairo protest camps packed with supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi, saying they posed a threat to national security and were “terrorizing” citizens. The move signaled an imminent crackdown against the heavily barricaded sit-ins — one outside a mosque in eastern Cairo and another on the other side of the city near the main Cairo University campus.
It also raised the specter of more violence after deadly clashes between police and the Islamist protesters on July 8 and last weekend left more than 130 killed. A spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, Gehad el-Haddad, said the Cabinet’s announcement reflected the rule of a “conspiratorial gang” that has no respect for the law. He also dismissed as unfounded claims that the sit-ins posed a threat to security. Asked if the Brotherhood would volun-
tarily break up the protest or send women and children home, he told The Associated Press: “This is an open sit-in. We don’t have control over the people. We don’t have control over them. It is a free choice.” More than 260 people have been killed since Morsi was ousted by the military on July 3, leaving the country divided between those calling for his reinstatement and millions who marched against him and his Muslim Brotherhood in a show of support see EGYPT page 10
CONCORD (AP) — A special commission will begin work in two weeks on gambling regulations for a casino New Hampshire does not have but that Gov. Maggie Hassan is again pushing lawmakers to approve. Hassan announced her three appoint-
ments Wednesday to the commission, which is to submit draft legislation on the oversight and regulation of gambling to lawmakers by Dec. 15 for consideration in 2014. Hassan lobbied heavily for a casino before lawmakers killed a proposal this year. New Hampshire has no personal income or gen-
eral sales tax and many felt gambling was the best remaining way to raise money for transportation, education and other needs without implementing a tax. The time was right, supporters argued, because neighboring Massachusetts is licensing its own see CASINO page 11

We don’t need political mini royals in America Can Huma save Anthony Weiner? Why Huma “stands by her man.” What is Huma thinking? These and other pseudo questions top our political news these days. One appreciates the enormous entertainment value of the repetitiously lewd former Rep. Anthony Weiner, as of this writing still a candidate for New York City mayor. But this obsession also reflects a political culture that turned our politicians’ nephews, daughters, sons and wives into mini royals. The conversation demotes the important consideration of whether these soap opera figures can serve the little people, the voters. Why Huma Abedin stays with her beyond-strange husband should be of no consequence to New Yorkers, except perhaps for the 0.001 percent of them who care about sexual propriety in others. If the electorate concludes from his antics that Weiner is out of his mind and therefore unfit to run Gotham, that’s another matter. How Huma is taking it all is her concern. The parallel between the hyperventilating coverage of Britain’s royal birth — third in line, third in line — and the forced celebration of our elected officials’ relatives is disturbing. Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick and product of the Washington suburbs, recently established primary residency in her father’s home state of Wyoming to challenge incumbent Sen. Michael Enzi for the Republican nomination. Liz’s entree to politics, chiefly as a talking head on TV, comes from her close kinship to the former vice president. Her agenda, one suspects, is to bag a senatorial seat from which to advance the Cheney financial interests in Washington. Of all the dusty towns to choose from for demonstrating her loyalty to Wyoming, Liz picked the posh ski resort of Jackson Hole. Proximity to the big money must be a comfort. Caroline Kennedy, best known as the daughter of John F. Kennedy, is President Obama’s nominee as next ambassador to Japan. It’s true that academics, business leaders and other non-career diplomats have done the job well. But what makes
Caroline Kennedy, a socialite, the best choice to represent the United States before our fourth-biggest trading partner? We get it. This is Obama payback for the Kennedy family endorsement in his race for the Democratic nomination. That doesn’t make it less aggravating. Back in 2008, there was sickening talk about the Kennedy family “passing the torch” to Obama, rather than Hillary Clinton. Years of stories detailing various Kennedy boys’ abuse of women blew that flame out long ago, except in some cliche-frozen corners of the media. Still, the torches keep getting thrown at us, as in the recent headline crowning an unusually servile New York Times piece: “Caroline Kennedy, Catching the Torch.” Imagine, she deigns to converse with ordinary folk bothering her. “Ms. Kennedy is said to be patient and gracious during these encounters, as she deflects and gently parries, leaving the other person feeling as if he or she has had a significant conversation, even if almost nothing at all was really said.” Hope the reporter got an autograph. Former Vice President Walter Mondale adds his two cents: “The Japanese will be thrilled with this news. They love the Kennedys over there. ... I think they will be honored.” I think they will be insulted. As for the American people, you wonder what kind of attention Joe Blow needing help in Tokyo is going to get from an Ambassador Caroline. At best, “a feeling” he has had a significant conversation. This plea may be futile, but Americans need reminding that politicians are here to serve us. We, the little people, have no obligation to revere their relatives. We got rid of our royals over two centuries ago. We don’t need mini royals now. (A member of the Providence Journal editorial board, Froma Harrop writes a nationally syndicated column from that city. She has written for such diverse publications as The New York Times, Harper’s Bazaar and Institutional Investor.)
Take God’s gift while you still have time. I did many years ago To The Daily Sun, Today in these uncertain times of widespread destruction from climate change to untimely deaths, God alone stands as hope and comfort. All we have to do is ask. “Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire, Uttered or expressed; The motion of a hidden fire that trembles in the breast.
Prayer is the burden of a sigh, The falling of a tear, The upward glancing of an eye, When none but God is near.” — James Montgomery (1818) The gift of eternal life is there to be received. So take God’s gift while you still have time. I did many years ago. Donald C. Poirier Belmont
LETTERS It would help if city would enforce ‘no pet’ rule on Weirs Beach To The Daily Sun, Enforcement of the “no pet” rule at Weirs Beach would probably go a long way of reducing the contamination of the water. I usually take a walk through the beach parking lot and boardwalk several times a week after 5 p.m.. There is never a day I don’t see dogs on the beach. This evening (Tuesday) I witnessed two dogs in the water and one on the beach. Enforcement of the “no pet” rule is needed, regardless of the time of day. I have seen dog waste on the ground next to the parking lot. Fines need to be levied. I moved up to Laconia 2-1/2 years ago. One of the attractions was to be able to walk to the beach with my grandchildren. In the three summers I have been here, I have not taken
the grandchildren into the water when they have visited. As a Laconia taxpayer (BTW, highest real estate taxes I have ever paid in 33 years as a homeowner) and as a Laconia Water Works rate payer, I would like to see something done. If high bacteria counts make it unsafe for swimming, what about the water we drink? Maybe a sign posted at the beach letting people know that the lake is the drinking water supply for the area might enlighten a few people. Also, rather than the sign stating that the beach is closed, “no lifeguards on duty”, how about a truthful sign that states the beach is closed due to a “high e-coli bacteria count in the water”.

I truly appreciate all that Chief Schlemmer has done for me To The Daily Sun, Dear Chief Schlemmer: My late husband had a favorite saying when he was very astounded by events beyond his control. Now I find myself repeating his words. I was and am “Aghast and Agog” by the news of your retirement from the Center Harbor Fire Department. Who else will smile at me as I sit on the floor unable to arise? Who else will come over to drive me home late at night from the ER at LRGH, causing the nurses to gather and and ask
“Who are you? The chief himself is coming to get you! You must be someone!” Who will attempt to use an ax on my metal front door. Let me state for the record. I truly appreciate all you have done for me. Center Harbor’s Fire Department will never be the same without your willingness to help at 91 year old widow in distress. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We can’t afford to have Shaheen vote to renew the Patriot Act To The Daily Sun, Who’s reading your e-mail? NSA pressured your e-mail provider to give them your passwords. (See CNET July 25, 2013). Don’t count on Senator Shaheen to stop this. She’s the same one who set the IRS dogs on you and your friends. This is all happening under the Patriot Act that has been bastardized by Shaheen’s cherished leader, Barack Obama. The Patriot Act expires in 2015. We can’t afford to have Shaheen vote for it’s renewal. President Bush only used the Patriot Act to monitor U.S. citizens in touch with suspected overseas ter-
When Obama and Shaheen took control of the Patriot Act and NSA in 2009 they took direct aim at you and your family’s privacy. Since then, terrorists killed our citizens at Ft Hood, Benghazi, Boston. We lost Seal Team 6 after the Obama administration identified their role in the killing of Osama Ben Laden. Do you feel safer? Some parts of the Patriot Act are necessary, others sacrifice our freedoms and need to be repealed to stop regimes like the Democrats using it against you. Can you afford to let Shaheen vote to reauthorize in 2015? No! Karen Testerman Franklin

LETTERS We have been boondoggled by war profiteers & politicians To The Daily Sun, What has been our biggest endeavor — our one single achievement in the last 10 years? To be specific: What has taken our time, revenue, our sacred lives — and has been our sole occupation consuming our conscience and psyche? And most importantly, our sense of well-being and security? Simply put: Killing people in middeneastern countries that we have been told, hundreds of times over, are a danger to our safety and security. Acts of foreign terrorism here in this country, have never existed, but thwarted by alert authorities in a few well publicized cases. Not one American has been killed in a decade! Yet ... The fight against terrorism is one of the largest industries the military has ever undertaken. It has resulted in multi-billion contracts for our legislators eager to bring business to their home states (regardless of the legitimacy of the cause.) It has resulted in
the largest expenditure of money in the last decade for any other single item. By allowing this warfare to continue, we permit the military to further drain our resources and way-of life to point of no-return. We are broke: But we will put another $85 billions in Afghanistan, a country which means nothing to us, in any way. I am convinced that we have been boondoggled by war-profiteers and politicians who have made this struggle the juggernaut it is! Where is the money for health care, for disabled vets, for education, rebuilding roads and bridges, for homelessness, cities devastated by storms and tornadoes, and many more urgent needs. We’d spent it all on endless wars based on exaggerated and worn-out claims of physical danger to our nation. it has not happened! Work for peace in out time! Leon R. Albushies Gilford
I actually felt I was standing next to Javert on the bridge To The Daily Sun, After waiting a full year to attend “Les Miserables” at the Interlakes Summer Theatre, my wife and I had the pleasure of attending on August 27th. We have seen “Les Mis” several times in various venues, and both agreed this was one of the top performances we had seen! The cast was outstanding. The set was dazzling. The music was mesmerizing. This was a captivating Broadway performance of one of the most beloved musicals of our generation. I actually felt during the show I was standing at the barricades along side the revolutionists. I felt I was standing next to Javert on the bridge. Prisoner 24601 was singing directly to me. Bravo! A special note of thanks should go out to Nancy Barry, producing director, and Brittany Bara, general manager, for their determination and courage in bringing this wonderful
musical to the Meredith stage. “Les Mis” is a complicated and demanding musical. It calls for multiple complex scene and costume changes. The production requires great direction. All of this was accomplished to the highest order. It took a lot of guts to bring this musical to the Meredith stage. Bravo! How fortunate we are to have this theater group in Meredith. Head over to their website and check out upcoming shows — “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”, “The Full Monty”, a tribiute to Sammy Davis Jr., and other shows occurring during the rest of the year. Bring your children and introduce them to live performances on stage. It is an experience they will never forget. My thanks to the Interlakes Summer Theatre for an evening of great joy.

Community walking & biking trails have local & global benefits To The Daily Sun, Last year we vacationed in Venice, Florida and were impressed with the commitment of Venice to walking and biking trails. Experiencing the trails both on foot and wheels was one of the many reasons we ended up buying a home in Venice. Personally, many benefits accrue from these low impact activities including health, physical fitness, connecting with nature, and meeting and greeting people. Locally and globally benefits include increased economic and social activity that helps business, government and individuals. Some
examples are: people are healthier and therefor less medical issues; tourist friendly; bike tours and walk-a-thons that help hotels, restaurants, shopping, charities, etc. that employ people and collect/pay taxes; lowers the neighborhood crime rate; makes connections between all ages; encourages spending, investment and development; and above all supports community spirit. We love the WOW Trail in Laconia and encourage not only its use but its expansion. Peg & Bob Powers Gilford

Barnstead slaughterhouse will be only 4th USDA-certified shop in the state By Gail OBer
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
BARNSTEAD — Although the rain soaked the mud outside the nearly completed building on South Barnstead Road last Friday afternoon, the owners who were working on the inside of their USDA-certified slaughterhouse and butcher shop were cheery and optimistic about the near completion of one of their lifelong dreams. Owning and operating The Local Butcher — a family-friendly local slaughterhouse and butcher shop — has been one of Kristi and Russ Atherton’s goals since the two met in college at UNH’s Thompson School in the early 1990s. “I lived in the dairy barns,” said Russ Atherton. “And I lived in the poultry barn,” said Kristi Atherton. Thompson School of Applied Science is the agricultural arm of the University of New Hampshire, which was, according to the UNH website, founded in 1866 as one of the early land-grant colleges established for the children of farming and laboring families. The Athertons said it is common for some of the students who attend “T-School” to live in the small living quarters set up in the various barns on the agricultural campus. The Athertons bought a farm house on South Barnstead Road after selling their share of a dairy farm in Lee. The slaughter house is south of the home located close to the road. He said if The Local Butcher were to slaughter only cows, it will be big enough to accommodate 30 cows per week. The USDA moniker is the key to the Athertons enterprise. All meat that is processed for resale in the United States must be slaughtered at a USDA-certified slaughter house. “The government employee will have his or her own office and all work will be done when he or she is on site,” explained Russ Atherton, showing a good sized room for the inspector’s office. Atherton said that they will primarily process cattle, sheep, goats, and pigs — what are commonly referred to as “amenable” species. He said poultry
has its own set of regulations and The Local Butcher will not be processing it. He said some “exotic animals” — like red deer and bison — can be processed at his slaughterhouse but will get a different stamp from the USDA. He expects to have five employees. There are three other slaughterhouses in New Hampshire — one in Goffstown, one in North Haverhill (that was part-time in Vermont but relocated over the border and became full-time) and one in North Conway. While some have questioned the need for a fourth USDA-certified slaughterhouse in New Hampshire, the Athertons believe there is plenty of business in New Hampshire — especially in the central part of the state. He said there are a number of smaller family farms that will be looking to send their animals for slaughter and with The Local Butcher being centrally located, he said many of them will find it less expensive in terms of hauling, fuel and time. While he agreed the typical slaughter season is autumn, mostly because it is expensive to feed animals through the winter, he said there is demand for services year round. He said some smaller family farms can’t get space in one of the other area slaughter houses during the height of the season and many New Hampshire farmers have geared their slaughter schedule so they can always have some of their product on the market, a move that also levels the price of meat. “But, without a doubt, we’ll be busiest in September and October,” he said. Atherton said The Local Butcher will be a complete processing plant with the exception of smoking services. He said there are three smokehouses in Barnstead, each with its own type of flavor, and he would be referring customers if they ask. The Local Butcher will be a “soupto-nuts” operation. He said the animals will be housed in one pen and processed right through to hamburg and sausage. There will be a butcher and a meat wrapper so, should a cussee next page

Motorcycle rider charged with fleeing into woods when trooper stopped him for violation BY GAIL OBER
THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
LACONIA — A Belmont man who was riding a motorcycle near Lexington Drive on North Main Street and allegedly ran from a state trooper who had stopped him for a violation on Tuesday at 7:15 a.m. was charged with resisting arrest, driving after being deemed a habitual offender, and disobeying a police officer. Lt. Kevin Duffy said yesterday that Jared Reed, 37, of Belmont was also wanted on an order from the court to take him into custody for non-payment of child support. Duffy said Trooper Chris Huse was on routine patrol in the Laconia area Tuesday morning when he noticed Reed didn’t have a valid inspection sticker on the motorcycle he was riding. Huse pulled Reed over and reported that Reed initially gave him the name of the person who owned the motorcycle. As the conversation continued,
Huse said he learned Reed’s real name and when he went back to his cruiser to verify the information, Reed allegedly ran off into the trees. Huse chased him for a short time and then called Laconia Police for assistance. Duffy said with the “excellent” cooperation of police, the nearby Belknap County Sheriff’s Department and a K-9 unit from Gilford Police, Reed was located in the woods. He also said some troopers from the truck enforcement division and officers from the Department of Fish and Game offered assistance. He said the dog found Reed hiding in the woods. Duffy said he was taken into custody without further incident and within two hours of the initial stop. Reed was initially held on the order for non-support and was released on personal recognizance bail for the three newest charges. He has since posted bail.

Bartlett & Opechee Cove beaches to remain closed through the weekend
LACONIA — Bartlett Beach on Lake Winnisquam and Opechee Cove Beach on Lake Opechee will remain under advisories warning against wading and swimming through the remainder of the week and the entire weekend. Water samples collected at both beaches on Monday continued to register elevated levels of fecal bacteria in excess of state standards. According to the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services the advisories will remain in effect at the two beaches pending the results of the
next round of samples scheduled to be taken on Monday, August 5, which will be announced the next day. The beach at Ahern State Park on Lake Winnisquam has also been posted because more than a quarter-inch of rain fell in a period of six hours. The posting will be lifted when a 24-hour period passes with no more than a tenth of an inch of rain. The advisory for Weirs Beach on Lake Winnipesaukee was lifted after the most recent tests reported bacteria levels within state standards. — Michael Kitch
OJ from page 2 in the Las Vegas case. In Los Angeles, Simpson was tried for murder and acquitted in the 1994 deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman. In a statement Wednesday to The Associated Press, Goldman’s father and sister, Fred and Kim Goldman, said they respect the legal process but now feel a “sense of vulnerability.” “This is not our personal case against Simpson but since he’s been incarcerated there has been a reprieve and calm for us,” they said. “It is unsettling for our family to know that the person we believe responsible for Ron and Nicole’s
murder could soon have his freedom.” Simpson and his legal team were pleased with the ruling. “We expected it,” Patricia Palm, one of Simpson’s current lawyers, told the AP shortly after the order was issued. “There is no reason not to grant him parole. I’m glad they did what they should have done.” Palm said Simpson called from prison to let her know of the board’s decision. “He’s very happy and grateful,” she said. The parole becomes effective Oct. 2. Then, Simpson will begin serving the minimum term on four concurrent sentences imposed for using a weapon during the 2007 robbery.

Atherton said even supermarkets, who until recently often butchered their own beef at the store from sides provided from meat producers, who are now looking for meats to come packaged and “ready for the case.” The Athertons are also working on their own sausage recipe. During a 30-day intensive course slaughtering course Russ Atherton took at Cornell University over the winter, he said flavoring sausage was one of the classes and he learned a number of different recipes.
“I’m really hoping to come up with a great recipe for my clients,” he said. The Athertons said they couldn’t say enough nice things about the people in Barnstead who have helped them in every way. “Everytime we turned around, someone was there to give us some help,” said Russ Atherton. The Athertons have two children who they said are pretty excited about the slaughterhouse and farming in general. He said at this point in time, the family has no plans to raise any animals for their own consumption. The Local Butcher should be open for business by September.

Marcy Yerkes has big day at Lakes Region Art Association’s Annual Show By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
MEREDITH — Marcy Yerkes grew up in South Carolina, and, 26 years after moving to Laconia, still has her charming Southern accent, which she has capitalized on by naming her business Southern Accent Designs. But there’s no language barrier when it comes to her art work. Yerkes was a multiple winner in the Lakes Region Art Association’s 73rd annual art show, which opened over the weekend at VynnArt Gallery in Meredith. Yerkes took first place in the oil painting category with her cows in the field painting, which also won the Judges Award. And she won the Loran Percy Award for a New England Oil Landscape with her painting of Mount Washington. She said that she was particularly pleased to have won the Percy award, noting that she has been a long-time fan of Percy’s works ever since she moved to New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. Percy won many Best in Show awards and other honors at the show over a 30-year period. Yerkes, who studied at Parson’s School of Design in New York City and was a freelance illustrator at Hilton Head, South Carolina, has seen her handpainted specialty work carried in boutique shops all over the country. Her specialized painting has been featured in numerous Designer Showcase events. She also paints murals and last summer was commissioned by Merrill Fay of Fay’s Boatyard to do a Lake Winnipesaukee-themed mural at the Lakeside Family Restaurant in Gilford. ‘’I’m trying to get more into fine arts these days,’’ said Yerkes, who says that the sense of accomplishment in completing a unique, individual painting is something that all artists crave. The show is judged and awards were made to the following members; Best in Show: Lorraine Gateriewictz. Loran Percy Award for a New England Oil Landscape: Marcy Yerkes.

Boat & pickup stolen in Gilford found on North Shore GILFORD — Police recovered the truck, boat and trailer reported stolen on July 15 from a Gilford boat detailer in two separate communities on the Boston area’s North Shore. Det. Sgt. Christopher Jacques said the truck was recovered in Lynn, Mass., while the boat — a 1994 26-foot Powerquest that had been stripped — and the trailer were found in Salem, Mass. Jacques said this is the second time the white Ford F-350 has been stolen. In May the truck along with a trailer
containing a 1987 22-foot black Donzi was taken. The truck was recovered a short time later in Seabrook, N.H. The boat and trailer have not been recovered from that theft. Jacques said he is working with police in some North Shore communities. If anyone has any information they are asked to call the Gilford Police at 527-4737 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. — Gail Ober
MULTICULTURAL from page one from 120 to 391 while the number of Hispanics rose from 162 to 250. Meanwhile, several groups of political refugees have been resettled in Laconia, most under the auspices of Lutheran Social Services. Carol Pierce, who chairs the Refugee Connections Committee, said that resettlement began with Laotians, Cambodians and Vietnamese escaping the turmoil in Southeast Asia and the Bosnians escaping the ethnic cleansing following the collapse of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. In 2005, more than a dozen Meskhetian Turkish families, orphaned, harassed and persecuted when the Soviet Union fell to pieces, were settled in the city. In 2007 and 2008, some 1,600 Bhutanese Nepalis, driven from Bhutan, after being branded illegal immigrants, denied gainful employment and stripped of political and property rights were resettled in New Hampshire, about 100 in Laconia. Pierce said that a significant share of the resettled refugees have left the city, primarily to reunite with relatives, pursue employment opportunities or even seek warmer climes. Many of the Turks migrated to Kentucky where work, especially for the men, was more plentiful. The Bhutanese Nepalis, she said, have congre-
gated in Concord. Consequently, said Pierce, immigrants — individuals who have emigrated to the United States through the conventional channels — now outnumber refugees in the city. “We are still a resettlement community,” Pierce said, adding that she anticipated New Hampshire would next become host to refugees from Myanmar, formerly Burma. “Most will likely be resettled in Nashua,” she said, “but we may get some.” Refugees have traditionally been relocated in New Hampshire’s cities, as opposed to in rural townships, because of the relative availability of affordable housing. Altogether the Mayor’s Human Relations Committee, which sponsors and stages the Multicultural Festival, counts people from 34 countries among the residents of the city: Turkey, Rwanda, Bhutan, Bosnia, Burundi, Columbia, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Peru, China, Philippines, Laos, Palestine, Morocco, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Pakistan, Brazil, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Malaysia, Thailand, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Croatia, Japan, Sudan, Lithuania, Albania, Spain, Puerto Rico and Cuba. This years Festival will be held on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in an around Rotary Park.
ECONOMY from page 2 December may now be a more likely time for the Fed to taper its purchases — if the economy shows consistent gains in the second half of the year. “This is a step back from taper talk, though not the final word,” said Paul Edelstein, an economist at IHS Global Insight. The Fed, like many private economists, expects growth to accelerate later this year. Job gains have been steady, and auto and home sales strong. The economic drag from federal spending cuts that kicked in this year is also expected to ease. “We continue to anticipate a meaningful acceleration in the economy in the back half of the year,” said Joseph LaVorgna, an economist at Deutsche Bank. A key indicator will come Thursday, when the Institute for Supply Management issues its U.S. manufacturing index for July. Manufacturing appears to be rebounding after slumping earlier this year. The Fed will pay even closer attention to the employment report for July, which will be issued Friday.
It’s expected to show that employers added a solid 183,000 jobs. The unemployment rate is forecast to dip to a still-high 7.5 percent from 7.6 percent. Despite the economy’s tepid showing in the April-June quarter, it’s now improved for two straight quarters as measured by the growth in the U.S. gross domestic product, or GDP. Consumer spending rose at a 1.8 percent annual rate last quarter, less than in the previous quarter. That’s a sign that tax increases that kicked in this year have led some Americans to cut back. Consumer spending makes up about 70 percent of the economy. Still, the rise in consumer spending last quarter was better than most economists had expected, and it showed that many people have remained resilient. Robust auto sales signal that Americans are more confident about their finances, economists say. Sales of vehicles topped 7.8 million in the first six months of 2013, the best first-half total since 2007. Analysts say sales should remain solid for the rest of the year. That is “a very nice indication of consumers’ willingness to go out and make big-ticket purchases,” said Peter D’Antonio, an economist at Citigroup. Businesses spent more on industrial machinery and other equipment in the second quarter after cutting back in the first.

LACONIA — Losers of 7 of 10, the Muskrats are now holding on to the fourth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Division by one game in the loss column with just two games left in the NECBL regular season. Laconia (21-21) lost to Keene 6-1 at Robbie Mills Field on Wednesday night while Mystic (also 21-21 and slumping) lost 6-4 at Vermont. Fifth place Sanford (19-22), meanwhile gained ground on both by beating second place Ocean State 6-5. The Mainers have won 6 of their last 10. Thursday night, Laconia travels to Ocean State and Sanford plays a crucial game at Mystic. Then, on Friday,
the Muskrats return home to host, conveniently, Sanford and Mystic entertains Plymouth (Mass.). The Muskrats managed just 6 hits against Keene last night and did not score their lone run until the bottom of the ninth. Nick Freeberger (Hartford CC) had two of the hits, including a double. Eddie Macaluso (Iona) started for Laconia and pitched 6-2/3 innings, giving up 2 homers and all 6 runs. Ryan Agnitsch (Jefferson) pitched an inning and one-third of hitless relief. Keene (26-16) holds down first place in the Western Division.
Drew’s RBI single in 15th wins it for Red Sox BOSTON (AP) — Stephen Drew singled in the winning run in the 15th inning to lift the Boston Red Sox to a 5-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners and back into first place in the AL East on Wednesday night. Dustin Pedroia drew a leadoff walk and took second on a groundout by David Ortiz. Mike Napoli was walked intentionally and Jarrod Saltalamacchia struck out. Jonny Gomes then
walked, loading the bases, and Drew hit a liner just inside the right-field line as Pedroia scored the decisive run. Boston moved a half-game ahead of Tampa Bay in the division. The Rays lost 7-0 Wednesday night to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Drew Britton (1-0) pitched two innings for his first major league win. Lucas Luetge (0-2) took the loss.

Muskrats fall 6-1 to Keene & remains in tight race for final Eastern playoff spots
CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire ended the fiscal year in June with $48 million above projections but that is less than what budget negotiators thought they had toward spending in the next two years. Lawmakers thought they had another $2 million for spending in the $10.7 billion budget for the two years beginning July 1. Negotiators thought they had balanced the budget with $44,000 left over. Business tax receipts were $36 million above estimates for the year but two tax changes cost the state $38 million. The Republican Legislature two years ago cut the tobacco tax 10 cents per pack with a trigger that would automatically increase the tax next month if revenues for 2012 and 2013 were lower than revenues for 2010 and 2011. The state took in $13 million less in 2013 alone. The price
per pack will rise to $1.78. The rate on other products, except premium cigars, will be 65 percent of the wholesale sales price. Lawmakers also modified a 1990 law two years ago to outlaw taxing Internet access through broadband and wireless connections. The change cost the state $25 million in revenue in fiscal 2013. An unaudited revenue report released Wednesday shows the state received $2.28 billion during the fiscal year that ended June 30. Revenues from traditional taxes were about 2 percent ahead of projections. Receipts were 2.7 percent above estimates once settlements from lawsuits and other one-time receipts are counted. The preliminary report counts cash received and money the state expects to receive. They are subject to validation and audit.
EGYPT from page 2 for the new political order. Police have been instructed to end the protests “within the law and the constitution,” Information Minister Dorreya Sharaf el-Din said in a televised statement, although she did not specify a timeframe. Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim, who is in charge of the police, said the disbanding of the sit-ins will be carried out in gradual steps according to orders from prosecutors. “I hope they (Morsi supporters) resort to reason” and leave without authorities having to move in, he told the AP in a telephone interview. An Interior Ministry statement later said that it will study the “appropriate steps” to be taken in the light of available intelligence on the kind of weapons available to the protesters and whether foreigners are in their midst.
The gradual steps, the ministry said, would be a warning to leave the area, use of tear gas if protesters don’t leave and finally “legitimate self-defense.” It did not elaborate. Police consistently deny allegations that they use live ammunition against protesters. In a parallel move, prosecutors also referred three top Brotherhood leaders, including its fugitive spiritual leader Mohammed Badie, to trial for allegedly inciting the killing of antiMorsi protesters last month. The other two, who already are in detention, are Badie’s powerful deputy Khairat el-Shater and senior Brotherhood leader Rashad Bayoumi. They are accused of inciting the killing of at least eight protesters outside the Cairo headquarters of the Brotherhood on the night of June 30 and early the next day. No date has been set for the trial, which will be held before a criminal court.

CHFD from page one to their surprise Schlemmer resigned abruptly on the morning of June 27, the day after the board endorsed his proposal to convene an advisory committee to make recommendations about the organization and operation of the department. “We were flabbergasted, “ said Selectman Harry Viens. At an emergency meeting later the same day the board accepted Schlemmer’s resignation and five days later appointed Leon Manville interim chief. According to a statement released to the press yesterday, Schlemmer claims that after raising questions about his responsibilities and compensation with the selectmen, “I was given an ultimatum which no reasonable fire chief would accept.” He said that after voicing his objection and requesting a meeting, the board sent me a letter accepting my ‘resignation.’” Schlemmer proceeds to explain claims that for several years he was paid under “three headings” as fire chief, supervising firefighter on call and fire inspector “in order to avoid calling me a full-time employee when in fact I was.” He suggests that the selectmen took this course realizing that a fulltime chief was needed, but that taxpayers would be unwilling to fund the position. “I was a full-time employee in reality,” he continued, “but on the books I was being treated as a part-time employee without benefits, retirement or overtime.” Acknowledging that 28 hours per week were formally assigned to the position of chief, Schlemmer said that because his responsibilities required “additional duty” he regularly worked more than “the 40 plus hours for which I was paid under the three separate categories.” Knowing this, he said that the town asked him to document the extra time, but considered it “volunteered,” not subject to pay. Schlemmer said that he discussed several options for resolving the issue “fairly and honestly,” including paying him a salary equivalent to his combined hourly wages, which would eliminate the cost of overtime. Instead, he recalled that the board instructed him to limit his hours for “all services” — administration, on call, inspection and training — to 28 per week, a suggestion he said “presented an
potential and immediate safety concern” and called “preposterous.” On receiving these instructions, Schlemmer said that he went to the secretary to the board, advised her that he could not work under those conditions and requested to meet with the selectmen “right away.” In response, he received the letter accepting what he refers to in quotation marks as “my resignation.” He said “at present I have no other recourse but to bring this to the people and if necessary to the courts.,” stressing that it is a matter of public safety, not merely personal employment. The selectmen, after accepting what they took to be Schlemmer’s resignation, met that same evening with a dozen firefighters, who urged them to meet with Schlemmer to resolve their differences. Dave Hughes, who chairs the board and serves in the Fire Department, recused himself, but Viens and Richard Drenkhahn agreed to approach Schlemmer. Last night the board met again with members of the Fire Department. Viens informed them he spoke with Schlemmer, offering to meet, but Schlemmer replied that he had retained an attorney and declined the offer. Viens told the firefighters that the board could not discuss a personnel issue in a public setting. Moreover, he said that with the prospect of litigation there
was nothing the board could say. “I don’t mean to be evasive,” he said. “I’m just following instructions.” Lieutenant Chris Conway asked if the attorneys representing Schlemmer and the board could meet to seek a reconciliation. “Our attorney advised against it,” Viens replied. Luke Dupuis, a local business owner, said that “the last thing you need is two lawyers in the room.” He said that “it sounds like an olive branch was extended,” but Schlemmer chose to hire an attorney. “The threat of a lawsuit has thrown a blanket on the whole thing,” said Viens. Viens explained that the board intended to appoint a search committee to select a new “permanant part-time” chief. The committee would review the job description and develop a profile of the ideal candidate. then post the position and screen and interview the candidates. When Conway asked if members of the department could participate in the hiring process as members of the search committee, Viens said “that’s a reasonable idea, as long as they’re taxpayers. I think it would be important to get your feedback frankly.” Nevertheless, firefighters remain openly distraught over the affair. “We’re hanging by a thread,” said Diane Smith, a veteran firefighter/ EMT.
CASINO from page 2 casinos and New Hampshire will miss out on revenue that will instead go to those casinos. “As our state stands to lose an estimated $75 million per year to Massachusetts casinos, moving forward with New Hampshire’s own plan for one highly regulated destination casino will help create jobs, boost our economy and generate revenue to invest in critical priorities,” Hassan said in a statement. She acknowledged that lawmakers were concerned about the state’s ability to regulate a casino and said she’s confident the commission will address the concern. State Rep. Richard Ames of Jaffrey, Londonderry Police Sgt. Patrick Cheetham and Manchester attorney Kathy Sullivan will serve on the Gaming Regulatory Oversight Authority. Ames will serve as chairman.
Senate President Peter Bragdon appointed Sen. Jim Rausch, a Derry Republican who co-sponsored a casino bill this year. House Speaker Terie Norelli named state Rep. Lucy Weber, a Walpole Democrat. Attorney General Joseph Foster also is a member. Other members are the commissioner of the Department of Safety, executive director of the Lottery Commission and director of the Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission or designees for them. In May, the Democratic House killed a Senatepassed bill that would have allowed the construction of one casino with 5,000 slot machines and 150 table games despite lobbying by Hassan, a Democrat. Last week, the bill’s prime sponsor, state Sen. Lou D’Allesandro, said he will file a new casino bill for lawmakers to take up next year.

Investors rescue Alton spring water bottling company By RogeR Amsden FOR THE LACONIA DAILY SUN
ALTON — It’s been an uphill battle for a small spring water bottling company here which three years ago was named New Hampshire’s Best Drink of Water, only to spiral into a near foreclosure in 2012, which was only averted when friends and loyal customers ponied up some $53,000 to keep the business afloat. ‘’We were so close to closing our doors forever. But people read about our situation in The Daily Sun and rallied around us,’’ says Deanna O’Shaughnessy, who along with her husband, Timothy Morgan, and sister, Fae Kontje-Gibbs , founded Chamberlain Springs on the 300-acre Sunny Slope Farm some nine years ago. She said that the outpouring of support was heartwarming and included a visit from a friend, who brought with her a bottle of wine, a four-leaf clover and a check for $530 and encouragement to continue the effort to keep the company alive. ‘’I guess everything happens for a reason,’’ says O’Shaughnessy, who said that the company, newly renamed as Nh2o, recently received an infusion of a capital from a Boston man who has an interest in seeing small, start-up companies succeed. ‘’One of the persons who read the story in The Daily Sun was Arthur Casey of Bristol, a retired businessman who told us that he was pretty good with numbers and could help us. He said that he loved old family farms and liked what we were doing to make ours survive,’’ she says. She said that Casey was able to contact the Boston businessman who eventually provided the funding last fall but it wasn’t until March of this year that he was able to visit the company and see it’s operations. ‘’He told us ‘this is good’ and said he would help us. That gave us some breathing space and let us take out another loan on the farm,’’ said O’Shaughnessy, who said that she and her partners are now in partnership with Newfound Business Associates, which is run by Casey’s wife, Cheryl. ‘’It’s been an interesting spring. We’re reaching out to our old customers and have gone back to selfdelivery. And we’re improving our product with new waterproof labels and have got a new capper. And our new summer labels arrived just the day before we were scheduled to deliver 80 cases of glass bottles to the Heron Pond Farmer’s Market in Kingston. So we’ve got new labels and lots of water and things are really looking up for us,’’ she says. She said that the initial plan for the company, which drilled a 585 foot well in 2004 to tap into its water, was to market the water as a bulk product. That plan was dropped after it became apparent

Deanna O’Shaughnessy of Nh2o holds two bottles of water which earned accolades as New Hampshire’s Best Drink of Water in 2010. The reconstituted and renamed water bottling company has received an infusion of capital and is now recreating its former distribution network. (Roger Amsden/for The Laconia Daily Sun)
that the construction costs of a new building and necessary infrastructure was just too steep. ‘’We decided to bottle it ourselves, which was probably not the best decision, but it seemed like the only alternative we had.’’ she says. In 2009, Profile Bank and the Belknap Economic Development Council provided a funding package to create Nh2o, a company that put the water in 750 milliliter bottles and distributes them through restaurants, grocery stores and at outdoor markets. Profile Bank’s loans included $177,000 for startup costs and an additional line of credit. However, O’Shaughnessy said that getting the business off the ground took more than they had estimated. “We were seriously under-capitalized. It cost a lot more to do everything than we anticipated.” She said that she is extremely grateful to Profile Bank for all the help that it extended to the company during it’s financial problems and is looking to see the company move ahead on a firm financial footing and build itself into a profitable venture, which will help keep Sunny Slope Farm, which currently rents space to vacationers and for weddings, intact and thriving.

LACONIA — The Jazz Bar at Tower Hill, located at 290 Lakeside Ave, Laconia, will present vocalist Sharon “Sugar” Jones tonight at 8 p.m. Admission is free. Full bar, dinner, coffee, and desserts are available. Known for her dynamic performances and recordings, New Hampshire-based Jones combines jazz with blues and Broadway show tunes to create an engaging listening experience. Her singular approach to jazz (which blends influences of Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald and Anita Baker) has been seasoned through many studio
recordings and performances in New York, Los Angeles, and throughout the United States. Now called “the Pride of Portsmouth,” Jones has toured internationally with organist Johnny “Hammond” Smith and saxophonist Houston Person. Tonight’s performance will feature an appearance by drummer Gary Gemmiti (known internationally as the acclaimed drummer for Rustic Overtones) and will include bassist Scott Kiefner and saxophonist Jon Lorentz.

‘Scenic Roots’ exhibit this month at The Studio LACONIA — For the month of August, Dan Daly’s exhibit “Scenic Roots” is showing at The Studio, 50 Canal Street in Laconia. Daly’s work is crafted from wood scraps left over from his work as an awardwinning set designer for the Winnipesaukee Playhouse. These intimate, often intricate works bring together Daly’s talent as a designer and builder and his vision as an artist. When audience members go to the theater, they take in the whole experience: the actors, the lights, the script, the set. They don’t usually think about the fact that the set often begins as raw lumber. “Dan is able to see the art that is inherent in both the large stage-crafted pieces and the small remnants of construction,” comments Melissa McCarthy, owner of The Studio and curator for the gallery there. “The work is lovely, a great combination of raw and finished material, and beautifully constructed.” McCarthy noted that two of the pieces sold as the artist was installing, a good indication of how accessible the work is. “Scenic Roots” will be at The Studio through August 31. An opening reception for the artist will be held Thursday August 1 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. The Studio is open Wednesday through Friday 10-5, Saturday 10-3, and by appointment. For more information call 603-455-8008.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Aim high and usually your arrow still winds up at ground level. But the view it will witness between the sky and the dirt will be far broader and more interesting than if you hadn’t shot into the sky. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). An imaginary encounter with yourself will be better than an actual encounter with the one you think is standing in your way. It turns out that moving yourself out of the way will clear your path of all other obstacles. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Between thinking and doing is planning. You don’t need a written agenda for this day to go smoothly, but it honestly wouldn’t hurt. You’ll save yourself time in the end because writing helps you remember key details. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 1). Good fortune sprinkles your next five weeks. You’ll be promoted through a system of ranks and in September and find yourself exactly where you planned to be and ahead of schedule. Relationships shift to accommodate new wishes and needs in November. Long distance travel leads to increased income. Pisces and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 1, 2, 30 and 16.
HOROSCOPE ARIES (March 21-April 19). The fast lane forces everyone to go fast because the flow of traffic will endanger you if you don’t. Because you prefer to go at your own speed, not a speed that’s dictated by those around you, getting out of the fast lane may be wise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The things that scare you might be worth doing. You’re in a particularly bold mood today and are likely to leap from the high dive into the warm swimming pool of life. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t mind if, once in a while, your loved ones get a little bossy or speak to you in an intimate kind of shorthand that’s less than polite. But if it happens more than not, start sticking up for yourself or it will only get worse. CANCER (June 22-July 22). In order to act when it’s time, you have to know when it’s time. Trust yourself. The temptation to move too soon or too late is ever-present, but only if you don’t trust yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may wish for a laboratory to try out your ideas. This could be as simple as a table and a few supplies or as elaborate as a fully staffed company. It begins with today’s wish. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). With fame comes gossip. Is it worth it? You’d rather be anonymous than have to think about everything you say and how it might be construed and what it will look like to others if you’re simply yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your gentle courtesy will bring you to the top of a list. Finally you’re being considered for the position you really deserve, and you didn’t have to brag about yourself to get here. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Usually disinclined to make foolish moves, today something impulsive in you wants to put it all on the line. It might be argued that by risking everything you are making sure that you have fully lived. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re not about to count your blessings as blessings until the end game is upon you, and even then you won’t really know. So instead you’ll enjoy what is. For now, it’s safe to say, “It’s all good.”

––––––– ALMANAC ––––––– Today is Thursday, Aug. 1, the 213th day of 2013. There are 152 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On August 1, 1913, the Joyce Kilmer poem “Trees” was first published in “Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.” On this date: In 1714, Britain’s Queen Anne died at age 49; she was succeeded by George I. In 1876, Colorado was admitted as the 38th state. In 1907, the U.S. Army Signal Corps established an aeronautical division, the forerunner of the U.S. Air Force. In 1933, the National Recovery Administration’s “Blue Eagle” symbol began to appear in store windows and on packages to show support for the National Industrial Recovery Act. In 1936, the Olympics opened in Berlin with a ceremony presided over by Adolf Hitler. In 1943, rioting broke out in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood after a false rumor spread that a police officer had shot and killed a black U.S. Army soldier who in fact had only been wounded; six people were killed in the violence. In 1944, an uprising broke out in Warsaw, Poland, against Nazi occupation; the revolt lasted two months before collapsing. In 1957, the United States and Canada agreed to create the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD). In 1966, Charles Joseph Whitman, 25, went on a shooting rampage at the University of Texas in Austin, killing 14 people. Whitman, who had also murdered his wife and mother hours earlier, was gunned down by police. In 1973, the movie “American Graffiti,” directed by George Lucas, first opened. In 1988, conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh began broadcasting his nationally syndicated radio program. In 2007, the eight-lane Interstate 35W bridge, a major Minneapolis artery, collapsed into the Mississippi River during evening rush hour, killing 13 people. Ten years ago: A suicide bomber rammed a truck filled with explosives into a military hospital near Chechnya, killing 50 people, including Russian troops wounded in Chechnya. Five years ago: Some 30 mountaineers began a disastrous attempt to scale K2 in Pakistan; 11 of them died in a series of accidents, including icefalls. Crowds of Chinese watched a total solar eclipse along the country’s ancient Silk Road, one week before the start of the Summer Games in Beijing. One year ago: President Barack Obama made his rival’s personal millions a front-and-center issue in the race for the White House, telling a swing-state audience in Ohio that Mitt Romney “is asking you to pay more so that people like him can get a big tax cut.” Four teams from China, South Korea and Indonesia were kicked out of the women’s badminton doubles at the London Olympics for trying to lose on purpose. Host country Britain picked up its first two gold medals when Helen Glover and Heather Stanning won the final of the women’s pair at the rowing regatta and cyclist Bradley Wiggins took the time trial.

The CIP, originally adopted in 2004, is updated annually in response to the actual budget appropriated by the voters at the previous Town Meeting and requests for new or amended capital projects for the upcoming six years. During this annual update the Board will review capital requests from municipal departments. Peter Harris, board chairman, says that members of the public are also invited to suggest needed projects by submitting a completed CIP Funding Request Form which can be obtained in the Belmont Land Use Office at the Town Hall or at http://www.belmontnh.org/data_cip.asp. The Planning Board will schedule a public hearing and once adopted the CIP is provided to the Selectmen and Budget Committee CALENDAR from preceding page

for their consideration during the upcoming 2014 budget season. The CIP is a budgeting tool linking Community Vision from the Master Plan with the implementation of capital projects. The CIP assists the Selectmen and Budget Committee in developing and presenting to the voters an overall budget which avoids unanticipated expenditures by scheduling capital projects over the term of the CIP. Historic and projected trends in revenues, expenditures and growth are evaluated along with the community’s ability to fund the cost of improvements. The projects are prioritized by their placement over the term of the 6-year plan resulting in a more level tax rate impact. CIP Funding Request Forms with all supporting data to be considered can be submitted to the Land Use Office no later than August 16th. CIP information is available in the Land Use Office and in the Data Center at www.belmontnh.org/data_cip.asp. email firstname.lastname@example.org. Events at the Gilford Public Library.

Dear Annie: I’m a senior in college and live at home. My parents, especially my father, are controlling and overly attached to me. I’ve had enough and am planning on moving away the second I graduate, but my family doesn’t seem to get this. They tell me about graduate schools and full-time job opportunities in or near our town. They’ve offered to let me live rent-free in the house if I stay in the area after college. These “suggestions” are starting to pile up, and graduation seems so far away. I can’t let myself fall into the same trap that got me to stay with them at the start of college. How do I say I’m leaving for good? -- Nobody’s Baby Boy Dear Nobody: Your parents don’t “get it” because they see no indication that you are leaving anytime soon. They’ll believe it when it happens. While many kids would appreciate their parents’ offer to stay rent-free, we agree that you should strike out on your own. Loving parents guide their children to be independent. You don’t need to keep saying you are moving out. Simply save your money and find a place you can afford, in whatever city you prefer. Research job and educational opportunities. What you cannot do is expect your parents to cover your expenses when you no longer live at home. Good luck. Dear Annie: I’m a married female in my early 50s and haven’t had a real friend in more than 20 years. It’s not a question of meeting people. They just don’t seem to gravitate toward me. I’m considerate and clean and have a good sense of humor. I’m a bit on the shy and quiet side, but I’m friendly and a sympathetic listener. I have often made the first move and invited someone to join me for lunch. They accept and seem to enjoy our time together, but they never reciprocate. At work, everyone seems to buddy up with someone else, and though everyone appears to like me, I have no buddy of my own.
I’ve been to counseling twice and have read books on making friends, and neither has helped. I appreciate that I have a good marriage, a good job, great kids and a nice home, but the absence of just one good friend saddens me greatly. Do you have any advice? -- Lonely for Friends Dear Lonely: It can take a long time to get to know someone in middle age, when friendships are already entrenched from work, church and community. You would need to make a greater effort, inviting someone for lunch several times, before the comfort level promotes a closer friendship. In the meantime, please look into the Red Hat Society (redhatsociety.org) and meetup.com for people in your area who are actively looking to make new friends. Dear Annie: Your answer to “Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat,” the person whose seat at a Broadway show was partially taken over by a “rather large” woman, was totally off the mark. You said to show tolerance. That’s absurd. The person whose personal seating space is being invaded needs to go to an usher or, better yet, to management and request another seat. Chair arms at performance spaces are there for a reason. If someone feels that he or she needs more space than the establishment has allotted, he or she should make arrangements for special seating. Obese people are required to buy two seats on airplanes. Why not do the same for theaters and sports stadiums? -Been Sat On at a Performance, Too Dear Sat On: Going to an usher or management is a perfectly valid way to address this. Unfortunately, it usually necessitates missing part of the show to locate someone in authority and finding equally desirable, unoccupied seats elsewhere. Charging double for theater seats is an argument we don’t have space for here.

Registration underway for flag football league MEREDITH — Registration for the Fall 2013 Season of the Lakes Region Flag Football League (LRFFL) is underway. The LRFFL is a National Football League affiliated youth flag football league and is open to all boys and girls in the Lakes Region area between the ages of 4-17, with 5 age divisions: ages 4-6; ages 6-8; ages 9-11; ages 12-14 and ages 15-17. All divisions are co-ed. Sign up is easy and only available online and can be done right from the comfort of your own home at your convenience. Sign-up at: lrffl.com Flag football is played 5-on-5 and requires no helmets, and no equipment is needed as this is a non-contact sport. Offensive players are considered “tackled” when a defender pulls the flag off of the ball carriers flag belt. We teach our players the ability and the
responsibility to avoid all contact, which makes them quick, agile, and elusive. NFL Flag Football offers great fun and teamwork, and all players on offense have the opportunity to touch the ball on any given play. The LRFFL’s mission is to provide a safe and enjoyable youth sports experience for all players and their families regardless of skill level. The Registration fee for the Fall 2013 season is $60 before August 5; $65 from August 6 until September 4. The fee covers all expenses for the season, and each player will receive an NFL Flag reversible team jersey and a set of NFL Flags to keep. Credit card payments are accepted online, and checks are also accepted. Practices are one hour per week, typically on Wednesday nights, and games in the fall are played on Sunday afternoons at the Inter-Lakes High School turf field in Meredith.
